Of the top ten digital currencies, Stellar (XLM) has achieved the best results over the past 24 hours. Over the past 24 hours, the price of this altcoin has risen almost 15% to $ 0.285.
XLM capitalization exceeds $ 6.387 billion. The coin moved up to ninth place in the CoinMarketCap rating.
At the moment, the closest competitor to Stellar is Polkadot (DOT), whose capitalization is just over $ 7.581 billion.
Stellar's return to the top 10 was preceded by explosive growth in the value of the cryptocurrency (+ 80% over the past seven days). In annual terms, the performance of the altcoin also turned out to be a record (+ 500% since January 2020).
Analysts associate the growth of XLM not only with the recently concluded partnership agreement of the development team with the government of Ukraine but also with the problems of the XRP token.
Ripple's altcoin has suffered heavy losses over the past few weeks. The fall in its value was the result of a lawsuit by the Securities Exchange Commission (SEC) and delisting on leading exchanges. XRP is a modified fork of XRP.
Accordingly, this tool became the closest one to those investors who left the Ripple altcoin. Former XRP holders have been instrumental in pumping capital lease for Stellar, observers say.
