Ether's dominance increases over the last week as alternative currencies perform better.
Over the past week, cryptocurrency prices finally gleamed brilliant green, providing the sector with a long-needed break from the harshness of the ongoing bear market.
Since last Friday, the total capitalization of digital assets has increased by almost 16 percent, amounting to roughly $143 billion in nominal value.
According to TradingView's Total Crypto Index, the total value of cryptocurrencies is at $1.045 trillion, down 52% from the beginning of the year.
However, there were advances almost everywhere, with nearly every top-100 cryptocurrency by market value gaining ground.
The governance token for the liquid staking network Lido, LDO, took the lead with a price explosion of 80%. This week, the team made a commitment to enlarging over the full Ethereum layer-2 environment.
Long-lasting forks of the blockchain came in second and third. With the network's upcoming conversion to proof-of-stake, Ethereum Classic (ETC) saw a 75% increase amid rumors that ether miners would switch to the network, while Bitcoin Gold (BTG) saw a 50% increase in price without any discernible reason.
