As per CoinMarketCap data, the majority of altcoins, such as SHIB, Cardano and Terra (LUNA), are presently adding value after Bitcoin rose past the $41,000 mark. A larger chunk of this category of assets has also gone on to recoup losses made in the prior week, with most tokens significantly up in the last seven days. On-chain analytics firm Santiment noted this in its latest tweet:
? This past week was a roller coaster for #crypto prices. However, after $BTC bumped prices market-wide after a rally to end the week, assets' weekly returns are now mostly a sea of green. $MANA, $LEO, $XTZ, $QNT, and $YOUC led the charge among top coins. https://t.co/3iDZdZiszI pic.twitter.com/K3vzZld1RS— Santiment (@santimentfeed) February 5, 2022
