Binance Coin, Solana, and Cardano have also posted double-digit gains, over the past week and are in the process of creating a new ATH in price. The crypto market is incredibly bullish and somehow the top gainer’s list on CoinGecko shows a lot of meme-coins advancing multiple x’s over the last few days. One of the horsemen of the topocalyse? We simply don’t know.
