NEAR, ALGO, and CVP all posted gains exceeding 37% as the market tries to recover from Tuesday’s sharp correction.
The wider cryptocurrency market appears to be in the early stages of a recovery with many altcoins regaining their footing after correcting by 20% to 30% on Sept. 7 when Bitcoin (BTC) fell below $43,000.
Cointelegraph Markets Pro and TradingView data show that the largest gainers in the last 24 hours were NEAR Protocol, Algorand and PowerPool.
NEAR Protocol gains 64%
NEAR Protocol, the top-gainer, is a decentralized proof of-stake protocol that offers faster transaction speeds and lower costs to facilitate adoption of blockchain technology.

The spike in momentum for the project comes as it launches its METABuild hackathon event, which is offering more than $1 million in prizes to participants.
