Presearch, Frontier and Algorand book double-digit gains as altcoins soar


On Sept. 9, bulls made a strong showing as Algorand (ALGO) and Solana (SOL) each steamrolled to new highs even as Bitcoin (BTC) continues to flounder under the $47,000 mark. 

The strong performance from the altcoins gives further credence to the argument that the market is in an “altseason,” a phase that is typically characterized by surging altcoin prices when BTC is range-bound.

Data from Cointelegraph Markets Pro and TradingView shows that the biggest gainers over the past 24 hours were Presearch (PRE), Frontier (FRONT) and Algorand (ALGO).

Presearch integrates Wyre into its marketplace

Presearch, a blockchain-based decentralized search protocol, registered a 61.3% gain in the past 24 hours and it appears that investors reacted positively to the project’s recent addition as a search engine option on Android phones.

VORTECS™ data from Cointelegraph Markets Pro began to detect a bullish outlook for PRE on Sept. 5, prior to the recent price rise.

The VORTECS™ Score, exclusive to Cointelegraph, is an algorithmic comparison of historical and current market conditions derived from a combination of data points including market sentiment, trading volume, recent price movements and Twitter activity.

As seen in the chart above, the VORTECS™ Score for PRE elevated into the green zone on Sept. 5 and reached a high of 71 around 84 hours before its price began to increase by 94% over the next day.

The renewed interest in PRE comes following the platform’s integration with Wyre that allows users to purchase PRE tokens directly through the marketplace with a credit card.

Frontier prepares to go mobile

The second-biggest gainer on the 24-hour chart is Frontier, a chain-agnostic decentralized finance aggregator that supports a number of blockchains, including Ethereum, Binance Smart Chain and Harmony.

VORTECS™ data from Cointelegraph Markets Pro began to detect a bullish outlook for FRONT on Sept. 4, prior to the recent price rise.

The surge in price on Sept. 9 came as the project dropped a teaser video in their Twitter feed hinting at “A New Frontier” for the project and provided a screengrab of the Frontier protocol interface on a smartphone.

The continued bullishness for ALGO comes as the company prepares to roll out the governance capabilities for the protocol on Oct. 1 and the project also received a big vote of confidence from the government of El Salvador after it was chosen to help develop the country’s blockchain infrastructure.
