Bitcoin (BTC) has been the undisputed leader of the cryptocurrency market since its creator launched the digital asset in 2009 and, to this day, remains the dominant force in the industry.

Now it remains to be seen if Litecoin can capitalize on this increase in momentum and continue to climb higher on its own merits or if the price will have to wait for more rise from BTC.

Stellar (XLM) is a 2017-era project that emerged after co-founder Jed McCaleb left Ripple in 2013 due to disagreements over the future direction of the company. Stellar had a similar circulating design and supply to the Ripple project when it was first launched, but has since veered onto its own development path.

The network has now become one of the main options for companies and governments exploring the idea of ​​launching protocols on its low-cost and scalable platform. These characteristics make it a suitable candidate for hosting stablecoins and central bank digital currencies.
