Algorand (ALGO) is breaking ground with an over 5% price increase in 24 hours. ALGO has claimed the second position among top-gaining coins today after Ripple’s XRP. Today’s rally comes after a 6.8% price gain recorded yesterday, March 21.
With the current performance, Algorand (ALGO) has reclaimed most of its past week’s losses with a 6.87% 7-day price gain. ALGO’s impressive performance on the daily chart could be due to the hype around ongoing network developments.

ALGO Performance Outlook; What’s Next For Crypto Prices?
At press time, ALGO is at $0.2373 with a 24-hour trading volume of $136,111,201. The token price has increased by 5.04% over the past 24 hours and 6.77% in the last week. Despite meeting some pullbacks, ALGO witnessed an impressive rally this year.
After closing 2022 at $0.1728, ALGO’s price started rising on January 1, with momentum gearing up to $0.2. The token hit $0.2 on January 9 and continued rising till it reached nearly $0.3 on February 20 before meeting some resistance.
ALGO’s current price reflects its bullish actions since the start of January. The token is 131.46% higher than its all-time low of $0.1024, recorded on March 13, 2020.
Algorand’s (ALGO) recent price action comes after several days of downturns in anticipation of February CPI data. However, before the CPI data release, three top banks in the United States collapsed, sending shock waves across the banking industry. This issue somehow improved crypto sentiment as more investors sought investment alternatives for their funds while bank stocks plummeted.
The market sentiment appears to be improving, but economists and analysts dread the fate of cryptocurrencies once the Federal Reserve releases the interest rates base point (bps).
