As news about the Omicron variant spread and both cryptocurrency and stock markets registered a sharp decline today, some coins managed to record a massive gain today. This article looks at five cryptocurrencies that increased by over 20% today, ordered by 24-hour price gain, lowest to highest.
WaykiChain (WICC) – $0.254 (+23.66%)
WaykiChain is a platform focusing on developing its technology featuring a new consensus algorithm, dual virtual machine smart contract scripting language, an efficient DEX based on WaykiChain, and cross-chain support for sidechains and other protocols.
WaykiChain launched its main net over four years ago and has been on the market ever since.
WICC reached an all-time high of over $2.50 in May 2018, and the team continued to build on top of the platform the whole time.
It seems that investors are flocking towards WICC during today’s price drop, not only since it’s such an undervalued project but because it has a high potential to continue its bullish rise.
At the time of writing, WICC is trading at $0.254, up over 23% in the past 24 hours. Its market cap is $54 million, with a 24-hour trading volume of $114 million and rising.
