- Bitcoin and Ether are up, but the rally in the price of Jupiter crypto is the talk of the town
- Jupiter crypto or the JUP token is up approximately 100%, with a stunning rise in trading volume
- Jupiter’s recent listing on a major crypto exchange could be fueling this bull run
The crypto market is full of price swings. Assets in the cryptoverse have the ability to skyrocket in value in literally no time. At times, the asset may also lose heavily. As of now, however, cryptos are in the green.
Bitcoin has breached US$21,000, with a 5% jump in 24 hours, to revive at least some hopes. Ether too has gained substantially over the past one day. But one cryptocurrency gaining today and drawing even more interest is Jupiter’s JUP token. Why is Jupiter crypto rising and what are its fundamentals, let’s explore.
What does Jupiter crypto do?
Jupiter is essentially a participant in the space where blockchain networks like Ethereum and Solana lead. It is a public blockchain, using which, developers can deploy decentralised products like DApps.
The project provides some add-on services, including its messaging app, which is decentralised and encrypted. Jupiter claims that this messaging DApp does not serve ads to users, nor does it mine data. Another primary product of Jupiter’s ecosystem is Gravity, the platform to build DApps. A file uploading service is also provided, which helps save files on the blockchain. Jupiter is likening this to Google Drive.
For now, Jupiter’s blockchain is not as widely adopted by developers as Ethereum’s or Solana’s.
Jupiter (JUP) crypto
Not much information is provided by Jupiter on the utility of its native JUP token. But it can find use like ETH in Ethereum’s blockchain. JUP might enable payment of the fee for using Jupiter’s blockchain.
The JUP token trades on exchanges like KuCoin and Uniswap. CoinMarketCap suggests that the total supply can be one billion JUP tokens.
As of writing, Jupiter crypto has nearly doubled its value over the past 24 hours, with trading volume surging more than 500%. The price is nearly US$0.018 per token. With a market cap of over US$18 million, Jupiter crypto is one of those few cryptos which are trading in the green on a year-to-date (YTD) basis.

Why is Jupiter crypto rising?
One reason could be the new listing of the JUP token on the Coinbase exchange. Another factor could be the release of new NFTs on Jupiter-based NFT platform, Leda.
Jupiter crypto has made it to the Coinbase exchange, which could be pushing its price higher. Though Bitcoin and Ether are also up at the moment, the JUP token has almost doubled its value. Jupiter provides blockchain services to NFT marketplaces and DApps.
