The cryptocurrency, with a 24- hour market volume of $3.832 billion, was still miles ahead of its counterparts in terms of sheer market share.
Ethereum, Bitcoin’s competitor was affected the most in the top five cryptocurrencies, falling at a rate of 2.03%. At the time of writing, Ethereum was trading at $288 with a market cap of $29.296 billion.

“Can anyone explain what is happening with #Holochain $HOT??Starting to pump or what????”
Cryptoclast, another Twitter user stated:
“People discovering the project and getting onboard. Honestly, this is what the world needs. Impossible to read the green and white papers and not have a “holy shit” moment #holochain”

WAVES/BTC sees dramatic drop to reach 1 Satoshi on Binance exchange due to a massive sell order
Waves, the 29th largest cryptocurrency, hit lows against BTC on April 17, and users speculated that this could have been due to a massive sell order.
Waves, at press time, was trading a $2.71 with a market cap of $270 million and had a trading volume of $15 million. However, on April 17, the price of Waves hit rock bottom due to a massive sell-off similar to one that Ethereum witnessed a few years back.
As seen in the above chart, the price of Waves against BTC hit exactly 0.0000001 BTC, which amounts to 1 Satoshi. The volume for the said candle is also massive, further confirming a sell order of massive amounts. The coin has since increased by approximately 3% against Bitcoin in under 24 hours.
Crypto enthusiasts on Twitter couldn’t hold back their opinions as one user, @BitBitCrypto tweeted
“- $WAVES did not trade at 1sat, it traded at 10sat
– It is still a great project and with a huge potential
– This sell order has nothing to do with WAVES (the project)
– This trade wasn’t done on Binance web cause you can’t place this low, it was API
– I didn’t buy it at 10 sat”
Another user @BITCVIX tweeted:
