UMA, LRC, and GNO broke out as ETH made a new all-time high and BTC traded above key resistance.

Crypto market momentum returned to growth on Nov. 8 after a strong rally in Bitcoin (BTC) propelled its price back above $66,000 and Ether (ETH) hit a new all-time high of $4,793. Gains in the two largest cryptocurrencies helped launch a market-wide rally that saw the total cryptocurrency market cap surpass $3 trillion for the first time.

Unlike previous rallies, when BTC made significant gains at the expense of the altcoin market, this time most of the top 200 tokens are also in positive territory, with many projects posting double-digit gains.
