Canadian Blockchain Stocks with the Greatest Crypto Momentum

The Canadian blockchain stocks we’ve discovered have generated returns as high as 60% in the past week due to a surge in cryptocurrency prices

SmallCapPower | July 25, 2018: In June 2018, Bitcoin broke below its psychological barrier of US$7,000, worsening the bearish outlook on the cryptocurrency market. On June 28, Bitcoin hit its lowest point in 2018 of US$5,848, a 73% decline from its US$19,086 peak in December 2017. However, a reversal occurred and on July 17, Bitcoin rose by 10% and has gone up 22% since, continuing its current bull run. According to Forbes, this momentum is driven by the anticipated approval of the Bitcoin ETF as well as financial giants such as Goldman Sachs looking to get into cryptocurrencies. To highlight this rebound, we have selected the Top 5 Canadian blockchain stocks during the past week, with average returns of 34.2%.
