The Top 10 Cryptocurrencies
Reading Time: 3 minutes
With Bitcoin (BTC) being up by more than +300 % on a year-over-year basis, the worlds biggest cryptocurrency by market capitalisation worked out well for many investors. Bitcoin has now about the same market capitalisation as Meta Platforms (former Facebook) with around 1 Trillion USD. However, there are a lot of other cryptocurrencies available, many of them have climbed to valuations in the high billions. Find out below, which are the top 10 cryptocurrencies by market capitalisation and trading volume.
Top 10 Cryptocurrencies
Unsurprisingly, Bitcoin and Etherum are leading the list. Even Etherum has a valuation of almost 500 Billion USD. While Solana, Dogecoin, Tether and Cardano have gained increased attention over the last year, other constituents may not be as familiar to some investors. For instance, Solana is ranked number 3 by market capitalisation, right behind Etherum. It is also interesting to see that Tether is recently attracting quite a lot of trading volume, compared to the other cryptocurrencies.
While this list gives a good overview of the biggest cryptocurrencies, it is important to mention, that the crypto market is very volatile. Therefore, this overview serves as a snapshot (taken at the beginning of November 2021) but can look entirely different in a short period of time already.
