While not in the league of Chain, MXM has seen impressive performance nonetheless, surging over 66% in the last seven days bringing it into the top 100. The platform touts efficiency and transparency as the main reasons for the market’s bullish sentiment, coupled with the recent release of its hash powered exchange app has brought MXM to new all-time highs.

Wanchain (WAN) aims to build a “super financial market” by connecting digital assets. The project features cross-chain interoperability, privacy and smart contract functionality. Over the course of the last seven days, WAN has seen a price surge nearing 50%. One likely cause for its continued bull run is the WAN Staking Pilot which went live several hours ago. Essentially, users compete with other community members to gain a spot in the 3-month staking pilot. The highest amount of WAN wins.  Those who make it into the staking pilot earn 4% rewards on up to 5000 WAN.

5.       KuCoin Shares – 30.83%

KuCoin Shares (KCS) the cryptocurrency native to the KuCoin crypto exchange, has surged by over 30% in the last seven days. KuCoin recently announced the successful completion of the IOST mainnet swap and added support for Ankr Network (ANKR), which may be part of the reason for the currency’s impressive gains. Additionally, KuCoin is celebrating the integration of BitUniver’s trading bot and have announced 1 BTC and 10,000 KCS will be given away to KuCoin users.

6.       GXChain – 29.97%

GXChain (GSX) is a public blockchain that offers decentralized data exchange solutions for companies involved in network loans, automobile finance and others. The project has sen growth very similar to that of KuCoin, with almost 30% growth compared to this time last week. GSX announced an airdrop some time ago that’s set to run from 1 March – 20 March to thank their supporters. At the same time, they announced a competition that will see the winner receive 0.8 BTC and 30,000 PPS.

7. – 23.11% (MCO), which differs from Chain’s CRO token, aims to offer payment card products that allow customers to spend and borrow crypto through the VISA payment network. The Switzerland-based project has seen 23.11% growth over the last seven days which may be attributed to the announcement that the project crypto card and wallet are now offering free Spotify and Netflix subscriptions, as well as cash back on Expedia bookings.

8.       Stellar – 22.64%

Stellar (XLM), the eighth biggest cryptocurrency by market cap has shown the most impressive growth of all top ten coins over the last seven days, growing 22.64%.  The project recently announced that Mozilla COO Denelle Dixon would be the Stellar Development Foundation’s new Executive Director. But perhaps the biggest reason for the projects bullish movement over the last several days is their listing on Coinbase Pro.

9.       Qtum – 22.50%

Qtum (QTUM) is built on Bitcoin's UTXO unspent transaction model, with the added functionality of smart contract executions. The project has risen 22.50% in the last seven days, but much of that growth came yesterday with the announcement that Zeux – “the world’s first crypto mobile payment and investment app” – would be listing QTUM tokens for its digital payment wallet. Users can now spend QTUM at “all point-of-sale payments,” the announcement read.

OmiseGo (OMG), a platform that allows real-time, peer-to-peer value exchange and payment services, has shown some very healthy growth of over 22%. It was announced yesterday that OMG will be the first token listed on a new cryptocurrency exchange, Go.Exchange which is likely the main attributor to the projects price spike.
