2021 was an incredible year for Bitcoin, Ethereum, and a large number of the world’s most popular digital assets. While Bitcoin has grown by around 300% and Ethereum by 630% in the past 12 months, a large chunk of crypto assets has seen much larger gains.
12-month statistics show that a number of relatively unknown tokens outperformed the top ten crypto assets by market capitalization
After the market crash of March 12, 2020, which devastated almost all commodities in the world, also known as “Black Thursday”, the value of the crypto economy soared. Three months ago, most crypto assets hit new all-time highs, but some of these coins have since declined between 30-55% in value. The lion’s share of crypto backers focus on crypto assets like Bitcoin, Ethereum or assets in the top 20 crypto assets by market valuation.
Although BTC and ETH posted 12-month gains between 300% and 630%, many other coins have far dwarfed these assets over the past year. The biggest winner in the past 12 months is a coin called Game Stars (GST), which is trading for $ 0.40 per unit. Spielstar tokens have appreciated a whopping 41.882% in value over the past 12 months. Another crypto asset that has performed almost as well as the GST is Mir Coin (MIR), which trades for $ 3.73 per coin and gained a massive 41.462% in a year.
GST and MIR are followed by two other relatively unknown crypto assets, which include Content Value Network (CVNT) and Stox (STOX) tokens. CVNT is up 20.101% in 12 months while STOX is up 13.957%. The next crypto asset on the list with massive 12 month gains is Dogecoin (DOGE), one of the top ten most valuable crypto markets in terms of market cap. DOGE is up 7,730% in value over the past 12 months as each meme-based token trades for $ 0.283 today.
Biggest top ten winners: Dogecoin, Binance Coin, Cardano
As for the top ten, Binance Coin (BNB) and Cardano (ADA) were the frontrunners after Dogecoin gained 7.730%. BNB is up 1,649%, while ADA’s profits over the year were slightly lower at 1,450%. 12 month statistics show that the 630% of Ethereum would make Ether the fourth biggest winner over 12 months in the top ten positions today. Of course, it wouldn’t be right to forget about the biggest losers of the past year and the Hyperion (HYN) token was the worst performer out of all 10,000+ crypto assets.
HYN lost 99.5% of its value and it was followed by the Shipchain (SHIP) token, which lost 99.21% over the course of the year. Tendies (TEND) lost 94.34%, hycon (HYC) shaved 93.02% and Monero classic (XMC) lost around 92.32% in the last 12 months. At the time of writing, the entire crypto economy is worth $ 1.96 trillion and among the top ten crypto market positions on Saturday August 13th, XRP is the biggest 24-hour winner with a jump in value of 11 %.
