On Monday, 3rd September, the severely bearish market saw a sudden bullish rise by a surprise candidate, Holo [HOT]. The sudden surge was made even more prominent with the top fifty cryptocurrencies seeing all red on the charts. Even major cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin [BTC] and Ethereum [ETH] were affected by the bearish market.

At the time of writing, Holo was rising at a staggering 55.15% and was trading at $0.0014. The cryptocurrency held a market cap of $189.324 million and a 24-hour market volume of $32.432 million.

On the other hand, at press time, Bitcoin was sliding at a rate of 0.50%, an exact reflection of the bear market. BTC was trading at $7237 and held a market cap of $124.828 billion. 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.

Holo’s sudden rise was met with a lot of expected surprise with Chricky Chambers, a Twitter user commenting:

“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”
