Tron (TRX) maintained its offensive posture on Wednesday, climbing in the crypto market rankings despite a broad cooldown among its peers.

TRX Climbs the Rankings
Tron’s TRX token continued to climb midweek, adding 7.1% over the past 24 hours to reach $0.02806, according to CoinMarketCap. The cryptocurrency has gained a whopping 42% over the past seven days and is currently trading at its highest level since late July.
TRX also strengthened against bitcoin, with the TRX/BTC trade jumping 8.4% to 0.00000697 BTC.
It was only a week ago that Hacked analysts were observing strong technical resistance for TRX/USD just north of $0.0200, which had served as a major barrier during the most recent market downtrend. Given the current pace of gains, TRX holders are targeting the $0.03000 level in the near term.
Trading in TRX has also risen dramatically over the past week from $93 million to $232 million. As of Wednesday, Binance was the largest market for TRX trades, processing nearly a quarter of transactions via TRX/USDT and TRX/BTC. Upbit and Huobi each saw nearly 10% of the daily volume.
By comparison, the broader cryptocurrency market was mostly flat on Wednesday. This allowed Tron to solidify its place above bitcoin SV in the crypto market rankings. The Tron blockchain is now valued at nearly $1.9 billion, placing it ninth among active projects. It was outside the top-ten last month.
