Coin Race: Top 10 Winners/Losers of June; 2nd Quarter and 1st Half
June was a particularly interesting month, and highly unpredictable – perhaps even more so than usual, especially given the high stakes for Bitcoin and altcoins. We see many of the coins in the red after the past thirty days, including in the top 10 by the market capitalization category, though admittedly the numbers are not that high for the majority of them.
Top 10 coins by market capitalization:
Four out of the 10 coins on the list are painted green this time, comparing to all of them a month ago. The winner is definitely Bitcoin, which appreciated 29.39%, and it can likely be contributed to the recent rises and falls in price pushing the crypto spring. It is followed by Bitcoin SV (10.41%), Ethereum (10.19%), and Litecoin (9.97%). The worst performing coin by far was EOS, with a heavy drop of -25.35%. All other in-the-red coins remain in the single-digit drop.
Top 10 winners
Looking at the top 50 coins by market capitalization list now, we find the recently-issued Bitfinex exchange token, LEO, standing as the winner, continuing its run through the crypto ranks. LEO had an excellent month, rising by whopping 3,396.75%. No other coin comes even near this, with number two in this category being Egretia that saw a rise of 607.64%, and Link went up by 211.63%. The last coin among the ten winners of June is Huobi Token with a noteworthy rise of 25.78%.
Top 10 losers
There were quite a few coins on the losing end in June too. We see Tezos (which was one of the winners in April) at the first place in this category dropping by 38.79%, followed by Waves with -32.53%. The last two on the list are Bitcoin Diamond (-11.17%) and Lisk (-12.59%).
Winners & Losers from the Top 100/200
Looking at the winners in the top 100 category, we find that Quant jumped up by 290.96%, followed by Energi with 271.26% and EDUCare with 144.38%. In the top 200, UUU jumped by 778.03%, XMX by 676.20%, and BCAC by 554.57%.
Second quarter results are also in. Looking at the top 10 coins by market capitalization, we see Bitcoin SV standing as the winner with a rise of 204.16%. In the second place is Bitcoin (163.52%), followed by Bitcoin Cash (142.45).
Among the top 50 coins, Egretia is once again a clear winner, jumping by 6,193.40%. In the second place is LEO, rising by 2,307.90 in the second quarter of 2019.

Looking at the top 50 coins list, the winner is Egretia with a massive rise of 14,247.45%. LEO saw a rise of 2,306.24%, followed by QBIT (1,397.67%) and Link (1,062.94%).
