Stellar (XLM) has been an outsider in the cryptocurrency market, even though it is an XRP (XRP)-like crypto coin, lessening the cross-border payments. However, the XLM has always remained behind the Ripple’s crypto, mostly because it wasn’t capable of reaching the same level as the Ripple’s XRP (XRP) cryptocurrency.
When looking at the cryptocurrency market’s graphs, we can see Cardano (ADA), Bitcoin (BTC), and Ethereum (ETH) as the most valuable players in the market, but Stellar (XLM), the outside of the crypto verse, is still there, competing with the major digital coins in the market.
As it seems now, Stellar (XLM), which is currently trading at $0.1102 as it considerably dropped in the last day, is going to rise in the following days. Today, June 28th, Stellar (XLM) trades at $0.1102, as we mentioned above, and experiences a 3.36% surge in the last 24 hours. The downtrend XLM suffered it most probably due to the drop of Bitcoin (BTC) which significantly shed today before recovering.
Stellar (XLM) Is Going For A Genuine Rally In The Cryptocurrency Market
How is Stellar (XLM) going to bull the cryptocurrency market? Well, it seems not to do that, but the XLM struggles to surpass the $0.13 mark, and it will do that soon. The 12th crypto in the market by market cap, totaling $2,140,913,690, Stellar (XLM) maintains is momentum against UNUS SED LEO, Monero (XMR), and DASH (DASH).
Even more, Stellar (XLM) is going to outperform TRON (TRX) and Cardano (ADA), as it is only at a little more than $80 millions behind TRX and about $140 millions below ADA, respectively.
Well, although the Stellar (XLM) shows a downtrend in the cryptocurrency market, the XLM is doing well, as it might indeed jump above the resistance level of $0.13. Once it has achieved that, Stellar (XLM) would sum up some considerable gains in the short term. Accordingly, those investors who put some money on the XLM will soon withdraw some profit, or at least that’s what the Stellar (XLM) graph shows.

Stellar (XLM) Price Today – XLM / USD
In most cases, altcoins are down by 99% from their ATH positions. A fund that comprises of BTC and others is still down by 81% from a January 2018 initial investment. Deflation has almost decimated the altcoin market. It took the price of BTC from $20,000 to $3,100 before it rebounded to $14,000 this year in what was described as a parabolic rally.
Even though Bitcoin made up lost ground this year, it didn’t manage to set a new ATH. The coin is now trading at half of the price it was at its peak point this year. Despite this, BTC tops the list of the best performing tokens for this year after posting a 92% return on investment.
Rest of Market Shows Meager Price Improvements
The list of the worst-performing assets comprises of altcoins that were hyped and tagged as the next big thing, ready to take the crypto space by storm. Those promises have turned out to be broken dreams as many of the tokens from the bull-run are down by 80% from their ATH with an awful 2019. Litecoin, Bitcoin Cash, Monero, and Ethereum, posted small gains. But they failed to come close to their all-time high positions.
Ether, the second largest crypto by market cap, which was among hyped coins, only recovered 7% through the year. The number three cryptocurrency Ripple is among the market’s worst-performing crypto. The list shows that the number one worst performing altcoin is Stellar.
Stellar didn’t perform impressively as it dropped another 50% of its value throughout this year. The coin even burnt half of its supply yet it failed to revive interest in the crypto space. XRP is number two having struggled all year despite mass adoption and partnerships. This means XRP has set a new low this year by falling by as much as 39% through the year.
