Coin Race: Top 10 Winners / Losers of September and 3Q
Although September brought no sign of a bull run, the bears seem to be losing their strength as well. A total of 16 coins out of the top 50 by market capitalization registered a net gain throughout September - more than a fivefold leap from only three that managed to do so in August.
And although the number of coins in red remains big, the losses are smaller than they were in the previous month, the last month of the 3rd quarter this year.
Top 10 Winners
Electroneum (ETN), the mobile based cryptocurrency, gained a staggering 218.7% in the month of September - significantly more than anyone else among top 50 coins. Dogecoin (DOGE), meanwhile, diligently keeps going up: a net gain of more than 90%, whereas August brought it 87.55% at the time. Ripple’s incredible surge also placed it high on our winners list, as the coin gained a net of 70.76% in the past month. Only one more similarity between August and September exists: Monero (XMR) had been on the winners list in both months, but in green in September with a net gain of 10.08%.
Top 10 Losers
Augur’s REP token remains on the list of losers, this time topping it with a net loss of 32.16%. This is also the only shared similarity on this list between August and September. Another noteworthy member is Ethereum (ETH), its price down by almost 20%. However, things are not as bleak as they were previously: only Augur registered a loss greater than 30%, whereas in August, all the losing coins lost more than 30%.
