    Crypto’s top 10: Rankings shake-up looms as Ethereum killers make presence felt

    Binance Coin, Polkadot and Cardano are in the ascendancy. Should Ethereum, buckling under the strain of congestion, be worried?

    Back in December 2017, when BTC hit $20,000 for the first time, altcoins such as Bitcoin Cash, XRP and Litecoin were firm favorites in the top five. Tether and Binance Coin were nowhere to be seen among the 20 biggest coins. Some, like Polkadot, didn’t even exist. Fast forward to 2021, and the rundown of the 10 biggest cryptocurrencies by market cap looks very different indeed.

    The GBS service can set up an EOS (EOS) archival node within 72 hours as opposed to six months, while Ethereum archival node setup time is cut from over 14 days to 12 hours, Bison Trails said. Supported networks include Polkadot (DOT), Kusama (KSM), Cosmos (ATOM), Celo (CELO) and NEAR (NEAR).

    Up 122% in a week: What is going on with Polkadot?

    It’s called an ‘Ethereum killer’ that offers a tantalizing alternative for DeFi protocols, but there are other factors that have been driving this altcoin upward, as its market cap surpasses XRP

    Polkadot has been described as an “Ethereum killer” because of how it offers an alternative to smart contracts. The platform enables developers to create their very own blockchains instead… paving the way for levels of interoperability that have been non-existent in this fragmented industry until now.
