It was a bullish end to the week for the crypto to ten, with XRP finding much-needed support to lead the way.
Following the 3AC bankruptcy filing, news of more platforms laying off staff failed to spook investors.
The total crypto market cap rose for the second time in eight sessions. A $2.58 billion increase left the market cap down by $70 billion for the week.
It was a bullish Sunday for the crypto market. Bitcoin (BTC) ended its seven-day losing streak. While XRP found strong support, gains across the rest of the top ten were modest.

With the US markets closed today, the NASDAQ 100 Mini will need considering, with the crypto market continuing to track the US market.
