The world`s largest and most expensive crypto has begun 2023 on a positive note, bringing some long-awaited optimism to the market. For the first time in five months, Bitcoin climbed above $22,000 and is up 35% in the last 30 days. However, some other cryptocurrencies have witnessed much bigger growth.
According to data presented by Bitcoin Casinos, Aptos, Lido DAO, and Gala, the top three crypto gainers, have seen the biggest price growth in January. Here is the list of other cryptocurrencies that also ranked on this list.
Twelve Cryptocurrencies More than Doubled in Value
According to CoinMarketcap data, twelve cryptocurrencies have seen their values more than double in January, the first positive month after a prolonged crypto winter. Another 18 have seen their prices jump between 55% and 95%, which was just as impressive. However, three cryptos stand out.
Statistics show January was a fantastic month for Aptos, the crypto with the biggest price growth in the last 30 days. Last month, Aptos was traded at $3.59, but his value surged by 252% and hit over $13 this week. The latest price rally pushed its market cap above $2.1bn, up from $472.6 a month ago.
Gala ranked as the second crypto gainer with just as impressive 178% price growth month-over-month. The CoinMarketCap data show the token was traded at $0.051 this week, up from $0.018 in December. Lido DAO closely follows, with a 173% price jump in the last 30 days. Last month, the price of a single LDO coin stood at $1.03, and now it`s over $2.6.
Threshold, Optimism, and Frax Share follow with 171%, 141%, and a 132% growth month-over-month. However, statistics show Decentraland, Solana, Curve DAO Token, BitDAO, Fantom, and Rocket Pool all saw their values more than double in January, ranking on the list of biggest crypto gainers.
UNUS SED LEO, Toncoin, and Huobi Token Top Three Price Losers
Unlike these cryptos, some other digital coins have seen their values drop last month. According to CoinMarketCap data, UNUS SED LEO tops the list of crypto losers in January, with nearly a 6% price drop month-over-month, which is still far below the price corrections seen in the crypto market last year. Last month, the utility token used across the iFinex ecosystem was valued at $3.65, but its price has slipped to $3.44.
Toncoin, the second on the list of crypto losers, lost around 5% in value in the last 30 days. Huobi Token follows with a 4.65% price drop in the same period.
