Will XEM Rebound Continue?

Korea-based exchange Bithumb garners between 35% to 40% of global XEM trading volume. It trades at a 50% premium in the Korean peninsula.

Over the past three months, XEM peaked at $0.27 on June 7 — fueling speculation of more gains in the coming weeks for the 18th-ranked cryptocurrency. (The $0.27 price excludes Korean exchanges.) The three-month drop from $0.27 to today’s $0.123 represents a 50% decrease. Thus, some traders are anticipating a rebound.

Its trading volume reached $23 million as of early Tuesday and it boasts a market capitalization of $1.07 billion according to CoinMarketCap. Inclusion of Korean exchanges puts XEM’s market cap at $1.56 billion.

Other Performers

Tuesday’s other top performers are Komodo (up 18% to $1.58), Waltonchain (up 15% to $5.19), Monero (up 14% to $138) and OmiseGO (up 11% to $4.71). The total market cap for all cryptocurrencies is currently $237 billion led by Bitcoin’s $125 billion.
