It has been an eventful week for the cryptocurrency market. In a week that was filled with ebbs and flows, the crypto market, which on 29 April was placed at US$1.77 trillion, dropped to US$1.65 trillion in mere few hours.
All the gains seem to have rolled out due to a couple of bad days, resulting in the market crashing by 8.20% in the past 24 hours. Leading cryptos, such as Bitcoin, Ethereum, etc., crashed, wiping around US$100 billion from the market.
However, not all cryptos saw such dips. A few tokens managed to register gains on a day that was nothing short of a nightmare.
Let’s look at the top five gainers of the week.
yOUcash (YOUC) managed to finish the week on a strong point for the second time after registering gains of over 371.60% in the past seven days. Last week, the YOUC token was one of the top gainers registering gains of 2553.11%, as per CoinMarketCap.
