Biggest Crypto Gainers Today on DEXTools – LYNX, DEE, HOLD
Blue chip cryptocurrency markets, with Bitcoin (BTC) flat in the $26,700s and Ether (ETH) over 1% lower in the past 24 hours after recently hitting its lowest level since March at $1,520.
Traders are monitoring a barrage of new macro information out of the US this week, including Thursday’s slightly hotter-than-forecast inflation numbers, the minutes of the last FOMC meeting that were released on Wednesday, and dovish leaning comments from various Fed policymakers this week, who seemed to favor no more rate hikes.
Ether continues to struggle from its own problems, however, which include weak demand for Ether futures ETFs that debuted in the US last week, and a surprise sale of $2.7 million ETH by the Ethereum Foundation on Sunday.
ETH is now teasing a breakout all the way back to the March lows in the $1,370s, which could mark a drop of 11% from current levels.
Here are some of the top-performing low-cap coins on Thursday, as per DEXTools.

Crypto Alternatives to Consider
Shitcoins are very risky, given most have no real value proposition.
For those looking for an even better probability of near-term gains, an alternative high-risk-high-reward investment strategy to consider is getting involved in crypto presales.
This is where investors buy the tokens of up-start crypto projects to help fund their development.
These tokens are nearly always sold cheaply, and there is a long history of presales delivering huge exponential gains to early investors.
Many of these projects have fantastic teams behind them and a great vision to deliver a revolutionary crypto application/platform.
If an investor can identify such projects, the risk/reward of their presale investment is very good.
The team at Cryptonews spends a lot of time combing through presale projects to help investors out.
Here is a list of 15 of what the project deems as the best crypto presales of 2023.
