The crypto industry over the years has witnessed a fair share of rising and fall. This year has looked good for the industry as prices have skyrocketed thanks to Silicon Valley giants like Facebook and Google embracing the technology.
However, the market analysis of 2019 reveals some surprising results. When you look at coins, cryptocurrencies that you would expect to stand at the top are in the red while small-cap tokens that entered the scene during the past six months are the year’s best performers
Here are our rankings:
ChainLink (LINK): +1,416%
ChainLink was picked up by Google as a blockchain oracle provider, as the firm experimented incorporating its cloud data platform with Ethereum.
This was followed by ChainLink (LINK) getting added to Coinbase. After these events, ChainLink rose in price from $0.289485 up to $4.39. That is more than 10X Growth.
The currency is set to hit all-time high prices crossing the 1.5k%+ mark if the market remains the way it is.
Qubitica (QBIT) : +1,487%
From being in the decline right up until 2019 to recording a whopping 1,487% growth, Qubitica has come a long way.
The Self Proclaimed “decentralized global community of developers, companies, and organizations”, with a goal to “share innovations in the field of DAOs (Decentralized Autonomous Organizations)” once valued at $4.09, is now $64.92 with 70$ mark at fingertips.
EDUCare (EKT) : +1,567%
EDUCare (EKT) launched in the middle of January 2018’s altcoin bullish market has certainly risen up the ranks. It ended up losing over 99% of its value throughout the rest of 2018.
This year, however, the Ethereum-based multi-chain platform coin price rose from $0.007651 to $0.127585. EKT is now up 1,567% since January.
Clipper Coin (CCCX): +2,905%
Clipper Coin (CCCX) came into the picture in mid-2018 with the aim of bringing professional financial services to the blockchain while setting up a standardized rating system for ICO launches
The evolution of ICOs into IEOs haven’t interfered with the growth of Clipper Coin. CCCX is up 2,905%, climbing from a token price of $0.000597 up to $0.017404.
Egretia (EGT): +15,455%
Egretia is an Ethereum-based token, monitored by Egret Technology, a publicly traded company in China.
This little-known altcoin calling itself “the world’s first HTML5 blockchain engine and platform”, burst onto the scene in mid-June, at the time of a 170% weekly surge sending it marching into the market cap top hundred.
EGT is 2019’s best performer with no competition.
It went from $0.000342 to $0.053200 at the time of the writing.
That amounts to 15,455% gains. EGT is now ranked 42nd in the world.
0x (ZRX): +5%
Staying among coins in the top 100, which is up 5% against the dollar still is the lowest positive growth among all major cryptos.
ZRX went climbing from $0.297092 up to $0.314888 However this is nothing compared to its expected growth considering the positive market. The coin’s performance against BTC was even worse as value fell from 7920 to 2628, a 66% drop.
Stellar (XLM): -2.4%
After maintaining its place in top 10 for a long time, Stellar is now ranked 12th after failing to keep up with the growing market.
From $0.113861 in January, the value of XLM fell to $0.111085. XLM’s performance against BTC fell at 69% as it went from around 3,000 satoshis to just around 900.

Zilliqa (ZIL): -11%
Zilliqa (ZIL) lost 11% since January, as the token price fell from $0.019417 to $0.017171.
Ranked amongst the top 70 by market cap, Zilliqa is another coin which picked up hype in 2018 only to fall off in 2019.
This is also surprising as there were rumors of Facebook planning to use Zilliqa for its own blockchain venture back in December.
Stratis (STRAT): -17%
What started off as a blockchain-as-a-service provider was up 6,000% since its launch in 2016. But From 2019 the coin price of $1.08, dropped to $0.888714 by the end of June, a 17% loss even after having its value doubled in December 2018
Coin Market cap has ranked Stratis outside the top 90.
Waves (WAVES): -40%
