Leading the chart is controversy’s favorite child, Terraform Labs’ LUNA Classic, a.k.a. LUNC, which made a comeback after a massive collapse. Currently changing hands at $0.00009773, LUNC is experiencing a 4% rise in its trading value over the past week. However, the coin has dipped 100% from its ATH of $119.18, recorded in April 2022. Incidentally, LUNC was at the top of the leaderboard even last week.
On the heels of LUNC is the meme token SHIB, which is presently trading at $0.0000162 and has seen a 35.39% hike in its value over the last seven days. SHIB has retained its position in second place since last week and currently has a market cap of over $8.95 billion.
Meanwhile, Bitcoin dropped below $24,000, in contrast to Ethereum, which stood steady at around $1,900 ahead of its much-awaited merger event. However, over the last seven days, ETH and BTC have seen a rise of 12.36% and 3.69%, respectively.
STEPN (GMT) secured the fifth position in Kucoin’s chart, with a 12.81% rise since last week, trading currently at $1.05. However, it has dropped 74.3% from its ATH of $4.11, which was recorded in April 2022.
Dropping to the sixth position this week from being the fifth last week is Green Satoshi Token (GST), with a 0.32% dip in its value, which is changing hands at $0.061 at the time of writing. Solana (SOL) follows closely behind, with a $43.09 trading value, which surged 8.3% from the previous week.
Furthermore, Seedify.fund (SFUND) and Polygon (MATIC) sit in the eighth and ninth positions, respectively, with $2.64 and $0.9363 trading values. SFUND witnessed more than a 6.50% dip, whereas MATIC saw a surge of nearly 5.30%. At the bottom of the chart, however, lies Binance’s native coin (BNB), with a 1.08% dip in the last seven days, making its value $316.84. This makes it the most unpopular search of the week.
