Binance Coin (BNB)

From January, BNB has undergone a rapid rise, with it's market cap value growing from $700 million to $2 billion. The coin is primarily used to fund transactions done on the Binance crypto exchange. The coin is equally as popular outside the exchange, as Justin Sun recently called BNB the heir to Bitcoin.

Like XRP, Stellar was built for international payments. XLM is valued at $0.11 and has a market cap of $2 billion. The crypto was found in partnership with McCaleb, a co-founder of Ripple’s XRP.

Tether (USDT)

Tether is recognized for being the first stablecoin in the crypto space. In the past, some have accused the developers of USDT of using the coin to increase the value of Bitcoin in 2017. Still, a substantial number of crypto investors use Tether because it is immune to the volatility that typifies digital assets. It is rumored that USDT will soon move to the Tron network.

Tron (TRX)

When it launched in 2017, the crypto community had high expectations for the TRX project. It appears that these investors are still loyal to the coin, as it has a market cap of $ 1 billion.
