As can be seen in the heatmap above, SOL’s price skyrocketed by over 11% in the past 24 hours, surpassing the pivotal $200 mark. In doing so, it also flipped Binance Coin (BNB) as the world’s fourth-largest cryptocurrency by means of total market capitalization.

SOL is the best performer among the top 10 cryptocurrencies, but Render (RNDR) increased the most from the top 100. It’s up about 15% in the past 24 hours. At the same time, Ribbon Finance (RBNB) failed to capitalize on this latest market resurgence and is down 6.4% during the same period—the worst among the top 100.
