Within periods of market euphoria, some coins rise only because of market excitement. Usually, there is no technological progress or nor are there popular use-cases behind it. Australian journalist Alex Saunders supposes he has already found such a coin in the ongoing rally.

No apps, no devs, no community

Alex Saunders, Australian blockchain journalist and author of Nuggets News informational resource, criticized the last rally of Tezos (XTZ). He didn't find a significant technological or economic basis for the double-digit price surge demonstrated by this token.

Despite this, Tezos entered the top-10 of cryptocurrencies in terms of market capitalization as its whole supply has now been at more than $1,8B. Regardless, Mr. Saunders doesn't think it will last long.
