Ethereum (ETH) reached $184.84, up about 3% this week. The asset gets a boost from the growth of DeFi apps and holding ETH as collateral.
XRP (XRP) crashed to $0.28, a serious slide for this asset, despite the hype surrounding the annual Swell conference.
Bitcoin Cash (BCH) added about 3% to $266.09, as the coin grows gradually. The network, however, has shown that large and hefty blocks for scaling are not viable yet.
Litecoin (LTC) grew to $60.87, rising on the back of BTC stability, and adding 4% this week.
EOS (EOS) recovered to $3.50, adding another 6% this week. The network’s speed returned, and last week saw an anomaly based on derivative mining for the EIDOS digital coin.
Binance Coin (BNB) expanded to $20.03 on the back of the general Binance expansion into new products and pairs.
Bitcoin SV (BSV) is almost unchanged at $127.25. The asset is growing its community, with appeals on running an air purity mapping node, to receive BSV rewards.
Stellar (XLM) climbed above $0.08 after an announcement that the Stellar Development Foundation was burning most of its coin supply, and making XLM a fixed-supply asset. Later, the coin slid toward $0.073, as the move failed to cause a more dramatic shift to a new price range.
TRON (TRX) holds on at $0.019, falling about 2% this week, as the network becomes the busiest dApp platform.
Cardano (ADA) inched up to $0.042, on slim volumes.
Monero (XMR) gained to $61.96, in the final stretch of another ASIC-disabling hard fork.
Unus Sed Leo (LEO) behaves like a dollar-pegged coin with a $0.98 value, seemingly unharried by the negative comments on Bitfinex, where the token sees most of its activity.

Chainlink (LINK) is changeless at $2.68, for now no rallies lined up.
Tezos (XTZ) moved up more than 41% this week to $1.24, as Coinbase opened staking services for retail owners.
BTC is again in a decisive moment, with expectations for a rally at the end of 2019, but also fears the price may crash again. Altcoins held unpredictable rallies, as liquidity re-establishes itself for a smaller selection of coins and tokens. ETH stabilized with a boost from DeFi use cases, where more coins are getting locked.
