Illuvium, LCX and Tokemak hit new highs as Bitcoin dominance lingers


During bull markets, altcoins tend to accrue gains when Bitcoin price consolidates and at they run in tandem with BTC price during breakouts. This dynamic appears to be at play today because multiple altcoins went parabolic at the same time that BTC made a run at $64,000 and Ether (ETH) hit a new all-time high above $4,500.

According to data from Messari, 31 tokens have established new record-highs in the past 24-hours and the total cryptocurrency market cap increased from $2.619 trillion to $2.732 trillion overnight.

LCX benefits from new exchange listings

LCX is the native token of the Liechtenstein Cryptoassets Exchange which was established in 2018. Currently, the exchange is in possession of at least 8 cryptocurrency-related registrations by the Financial Market Authority Liechtenstein and this allows the platform to legally offer exchange services and security token offerings (STO).
