Here we take a look at Cryptocurrencies and see how they compare by percentage of total volume and market. As expected Bitcoin leads the way at 42.4% of the total cryptocurrency market followed by Ethereum at 17.8%. So much for the flippening amirite. After that we see the usual suspects, LTC, BCH, EOS, XRP, in the single digits. Interesting to see Bitcoin dominance still above 40% when many predicted this would be the year other coins closed the gap, especially during the bear trend we’ve been in for most of 2018. Which coins can move up the ranks in the next 12 months? EOS launch has been a disaster so far. Can Litecoin keep its place as silver to Bitcoin’s gold?
Cryptocurrency Circulating Value
In terms of cryptocurrency volume traded on exchanges, Bitcoin dominates slightly less at 31%. This could be the result of lesser volume from mostly BTC focused exchanges like Bitfinex and Bitmex and altcoin exchanges like Binance launching more altcoin to fiat pairs. This could be a trend to keep an eye on for the rest of the year as regulation starts to pave the way for regulated exchanges and more fiat on-boarding services become available.
Cryptocurrency Daily Volume
Finally we take a look at the cryptocurrency volatility chart. This chart shows that volatility measured as a % of price over the course of the last 180 days courtesy of the crew at sifrdata.com. This bear trend is taking its toll but the volatility is also what makes crypto markets so different from traditional assets.

I wonder how many years til the crypto markets stabilise some…at least for large market cap coins.
