Just minutes, the price of Cosmos (ATOM) surpassed $8 for the first time ever. As of this article’s writing, the price of the cryptocurrency is $8.25 — up over 30% in the past 24 hours alone.

This means that ATOM is outpacing all other cryptocurrencies in the top 100. Bitcoin, for instance, has rallied a mere 0.25% in the past 24 hours as the cryptocurrency enters a consolidation pattern.

BTC actually consolidating is actually what is partially enabling this rally as altcoins thrive in periods of low volatility.
