Significant Gainers And Losers
A big day for Medibloc [MEDX] as it emerged as the top one gainer in the crypto markets over the last 24 hours. MediBloc recorded a massive gain of over 100.19% against the USD in the previous trading session. The new gains came after the project team announced the listing of the Medibloc ERC20 token (MEDX) on Korea’s largest crypto exchanges, Upbit.
At press time, MEDX trades at $0.0087 with a daily volume of $9,196,739 and a market cap of $27,610,627.

As the Swarm platform gains popularity, the price of its token would continue to go up, and if the project team can execute their roadmap effectively, then the price of the cryptocurrency would also keep going up.
HOQU (HQX) recorded massive short gains at the early hours of the last trading session due to pump operation. However, a price correction followed almost immediately, pushing the token down to the red side of the market.
