The bullish surge across the cryptocurrency markets has ranked several high profile projects among the top gainers and losers – a distinction predominantly reserved for crypto assets with meager market caps. As of this writing, litecoin (LTC) is the 17th-top gaining cryptocurrency of the last 24 hours after gaining 26%, while the heavily hyped bittorrent token (BTT) sits among the top losers of the last 24 hours despite ranking as a top gaining market of the last seven days.
LTC Ranks Fourth by Market Cap Following 26% Rally in 24 Hours
Litecoin is the top market by both market cap and 24-hour volume to currently rank among the top gainers and losers. LTC rallied by 26% in the last 24 hours, pushing litecoin up two positions to rank as the fourth largest cryptocurrency by capitalization with $2.56 billion, and boosting LTC’s dominance from 1.80% to 2.10%.
As of this writing, $1.65 billion worth of litecoin has changed hands in the last 24 hours, with LTC currently trading for nearly $42.50.
Bittorrent Token Among Top Weekly Gainers and Daily Losers

BTT currently boasts the largest seven-day volume of the top gaining markets of the week with a weekly price gain of approximately 83.50%.
Despite the strong weekly performance, the surge across the cryptocurrency markets has seen BTT fall from the top daily gainers to comprise the 19th-weakest performing crypto asset of the last 24 hours, with BTT currently trading for 7.84% less than it was 24 hours ago.
BTT currently has the largest daily volume of the top losers, with $150.70 million worth of BTT changing hands in the last 24 hours. As of this writing, BTT is trading for 24 satoshis.
Grin Ranks Among Top Weekly Losers
