Let’s have a closer look at the top 50 coins by market capitalization and how August treated them.

Dogecoin’s rally took it soaring into the heights as the coin gained 87.55% on its price. It is followed by NANO and ETP (Metaverse), with a net increase of 61.34% and 59.57% respectively. The others are winners only in the sense that they lost the least: the last of the winners is EOS, having lost 12.6%. Bitcoin is also near the end of the list. July and August share only Dogecoin and Bitcoin in this list, where Dogecoin has moved up and Bitcoin down.
