Altcoin Gainers Today: EOS
EOS has been passed by Stellar at the start of this week for the fifth largest cryptocurrency by market capitalization. However, the cryptocurrency has gained momentum in the last 24 hours and has returned to the fifth.
Block.one, the software publisher who designed EOS, is currently holding his global EOS hackathon to encourage the dApps to be built on EOS. Two of the competitions have already been completed and two more are planned for the next few months.
Block.one will publish the dates for the fifth "final hackathon" in December. The first three winners of each hackathon will compete in the grand finale.
At the time of printing, EOS is currently trading $ 4.86 per coin, up 3.22% in 24 hours.
Tron recently fell into the 12th largest cryptocurrency by total market capitalization, but received a boost in the market today and is seeing more than 10% gains.

– VeChain Foundation (@vechainofficial) 16 August 2018  Yesterday, the VeChain Foundation released this announcement, but there does not seem to be a clear indication of why the currency was so quickly undermined. The usual "pump" tweets are on Twitter, but those must always be ignored.
At the time of printing, the VET is trading at $ 0.0149 per coin, an increase of 48.35% in 24 hours.
