Mask Network, 1inch and Shiba Inu ignore Bitcoin’s downtrend, posting 20% gains

The cryptocurrency market is back on the rocks on Oct. 27 as many of the top assets find themselves in the red on the day after Bitcoin (BTC) price dropped to $58,000 in the early trading session.

Despite the wider struggles of the market, several altcoins have managed to post gains in excess of 22% as major protocol integrations and exchange listings have helped to buffer them against the wider market downturn.
