Nano leads the pack and is up 325% in the last week at time of writing. The digital asset is designed to facilitate fast transactions with zero fees and minimal hardware resource requirements. It boasts a market cap of just under $587 million, according to the latest numbers from CoinGecko.

After a big run at the start of the week, Dogecoin comes in at the fifth position. Although the Litecoin fork was created as a joke, its gains have been impressive, coming in at 109% in the last seven days.
Reserve Rights Token (RSR) and Solana (SOL) are tied for sixth and seventh, both with 108% gains in the last seven days. RSR is the volatile utility token of the Reserve Protocol and is designed to balance the value of the stablecoin RSV.
