Bitcoin Cash, DeepBrain Chain and Zclassic Double in Value
Bitcoin Cash (BCH), DeepBrain Chain (DBC) and Zclassic (ZCL) lead a list of coins that have more than doubled in value in just the last seven days.
Groestlcoin (GRS) and Bitcoin Private (BTCP) are also pushing through the stratosphere.

Coins That Doubled in the Last 7 Days

Bitcoin Private – 121%
Zclassic – 157%

Coin burns decrease the overall supply, which could in turn trigger a rise in price.
Detractors are calling the move a propaganda-laden PR stunt. Antpool is owned by Bitmain – one of the biggest Bitcoin miner and hardware manufacturers in the world.
The company was founded by Bitcoin Cash advocate Jihan Wu, a well-known and influential Bitcoin Cash advocate.
