Top 3 Risers

  1.  Monero:  Monero has been having a great February.  The rise in price is likely because of the upcoming hard fork that will happen on March 14. MoneroV will be spawned and holders of Monero will get a 10x bonus of XMV tokens.
  2.  TRON:  Their main advantage is in tech and the founder of TRON had announced a few days ago, the main net of TRON will be launched in advance.
  3.  Bitcoin: There is news that PayPal might be using bitcoin in the future.

Bottom 3 Fallers

  1.  Ethereum Classic:  No real news as to why the price is falling.
  2.  NEO:  Focused mainly on apps.  Could this show that blockchain for apps might not work?
  3.  NEM:  $530 million in theft has left NEM falling for the second week in a row!
