There were not many significant movements within the ranking of the top 100 cryptocurrencies this week. There was however a tendency of market caps drawing closer to each other. As such, the biggest gainers showed in the the bottom half of the CMC100. The biggest gainers this week were Energi (NRG), Quant (QNT), and Digitex Futures (DGTX).
There were however outshone by serial mover Swipe (SXP). The crypto-to-fiat payment token was one of the best performing digital assets earlier this year, ranking as high as #45 in late January . Since then, SXP has experienced dramatic volatility, dropping out and back into the CMC100 ranking multiple times.
SXP is listed on CoinMarketCap since August 2019 and it seems like the relatively young token hasn’t found its fair market price yet. Also, low liquidity might be an issue that drives volatility. Since SXP is mainly used for payments, there portion of tokens held on exchanges is rather low. In conjunction with its relatively high trading volume, compared to other cryptocurrencies ranked in a similar range, changes in demand spell a high price volatility.
