The cryptocurrency market faced another day of erratic price action on January 13th after the Bitcoin (BTC) bulls vehemently refused in their attempt to push the price above $44,000. This led to a quick sell-off that pushed the price back to the high line at $42,000.

Despite the midday battle over Bitcoin and many other major cryptocurrencies with market cap, many cryptocurrencies with small caps have managed to make significant progress.

Electroneum focuses on the temporary job economy
Cryptocurrency mobile platform Electroneum has seen the original ETN token price rise 75% to $0.0134 in the last 24 hours, with 24-hour trading volume up 1552%.

VORTECS data from Cointelegraph Markets Pro began showing positive prospects for ETN on January 11, before the recent price rally.

As shown in the chart above, the VORTECS™ valuation for ETN hit a peak of 70 on January 11, roughly four hours before the price surged 77.5% over the next two days.

The sudden increase in ETN trading volume and price occurred when the project refocused its efforts on marketing its standalone AnyTask™ platform. This also contributed to an increase in the main VORTECS score for ETN, which was 80 at the time of writing.
