These are the Altcoins that have outperformed the rest of the market including Bitcoin (BTC) in the past week as the DeFi craze gains steam.
Altcoins have started to record large gains across the board. Some small-cap coins have seen triple-digit percentage gains in recent weeks.
But several larger-cap cryptocurrencies have also been posting serious gains such as VeChain (VET), Stellar (XLM), Cardano (ADA) and Chainlink (LINK).
In the past week, VET, XLM, ADA, ALGO, LINK, BSV, ATOM, XRP, CRO and ETC outperformed the rest of the market including Bitcoin, which gained just 1.13% during the period.
Since March, both Bitcoin (BTC) and Ether (ETH) recorded gains of over 150%, reportedly fueled by a surge in retail demand as well as institutions.
Following the strong recovery of the top two crypto-assets, the momentum of many altcoins began to increase, particularly following the Bitcoin halving in mid-May.
VET ranked as the third-best performing crypto asset of the week. Some speculate that the participation of the VeChain team at a major conference might indicate a product announcement.
Others believe the rally derives from the anticipation of a potential Coinbase listing.
On June 11, Coinbase said that it is reviewing VeChain along with 19 other cryptocurrencies.
Mentioning VeChain, the exchange said:
“Today we’re announcing that we are exploring the addition of a range of new assets. As part of the exploratory process customers may see public-facing APIs and other signs that we are conducting engineering work to potentially support these assets.”
Stellar and Cardano are set to see major protocol updates, with Cardano’s hard fork scheduled to activate on July 30.
The hype around protocol upgrades and new product releases have buoyed the sentiment around top cryptocurrencies in recent weeks.
Other crypto assets, like Chainlink, for instance, have recently surpassed their record highs after a strong month in June.
The interest around LINK increased after it entered a price discovery phase.
Price discovery is a technical term for when an asset surpasses its all-time high into uncharted territory.

84% of Crypto Twitter Is Buying or Holding Bitcoin, Boosting Bull Case
There have been many analysts over recent weeks arguing that Bitcoin is clearly at a market top.
One trader commented that the cryptocurrency is trading in line with a textbook “distribution” pattern.
“A couple more clues developing that lend themselves to HTF distribution. 1. Rising Demand on the verge of failing. 2. Side by side, ascent vs descent with selling the dominant pressure from volume,” a trader said on the matter.
Yet data shows that long-term investors are unfazed. Namely, a majority of respondents to an impromptu Twitter poll has revealed that they’re still long on Bitcoin.
On July 9th, pseudonymous BTC analyst “PlanB” conducted a poll via his Twitter account, followed by over 100,000.
He asked his followers — which represent a good portion of Crypto Twitter — if they’re holding, buying, or selling Bitcoin.
The impromptu poll, which reached over 13,800 individuals, found that 65.6% of respondents are currently holding Bitcoin. 18.3% of the respondents are buying the cryptocurrency at the moment. And a mere 3.9% of the respondents are currently selling BTC.
