Bitcoin Top 10 Market Cap Charts: Crypto’s Big Three, Plus Six More by Brian Colombana.
Top 10 Cryptocurrencies by 24-Hour Volume Rankings
This week, the big three of the cryptocurrency world took a backseat as bitcoin cash outpaced both ethereum and Ripple in market cap rankings. BCH was one of the best-performing cryptocurrencies during the first two weeks of 2017 but has since fallen off along with most other coins.
Top ‘altcoins’, meaning those outside the top 10, have collectively held their position for much longer than usual before being pushed out by an early surge from Dash tokens. We’ve seen all but four or so of our top 30 hold onto that spot for more than three months now.
Litecoin’s slight recovery halted on Monday as bitcoin’s latest price plunge took hold across the cryptocurrency space. The currency is down 1.7% on the day and remains at around $194 per token. Ripple (XRP) continues to fall though it has not quite entered negative figures yet, with a 0.5% drop to $0.202 per token today.
Ethereum could not re-establish its recent upward trend, falling back amid broader market losses. Prices fell below $700 on Tuesday morning for the first time since December 7th before rebounding slightly into positive territory for now. This has pushed Ripple tokens back into the fourth spot with a market cap of more than $8 billion on a trading volume of just under $600 million over the past 24 hours – still impressive given the price declines seen in recent days.
For other top 10 cryptocurrencies, prices have been pretty much unchanged since this time yesterday. Dash tokens are down 0.5% to $825 per coin, while NEO has dropped 1% to $130. IOTA is slightly down its price yesterday but remains at around $4.40. Ethereum Classic is also higher by about an identical amount to its sister currency, IOTA, with a 2% gain today.
The big news this week was bitcoin’s sudden drop below US$10,000, which had traders wondering what might be next for the cryptocurrency world after it smashed through that key psychological level following its meteoric rise over recent months towards $20,000 per coin.
Bitcoin Price Falls below US$10,000
The value of bitcoin has fallen below $10,000 for the first time since it reached a record high in mid-December. The price of a single coin dropped as low as $9,022 at one point today – a fall of about 9% – before rebounding slightly to stand at $9,861 at the time of writing.
Although prices have been dropping across the cryptocurrency market over the last 24 hours, this isn’t particularly unusual and comes following reports that South Korea is planning to ban all domestic cryptocurrencies exchanges within the next few months. This follows similar moves from China that saw its biggest cryptocurrency trading platforms halt operations in September 2017.
Bitcoin Price Nears US$8,000
Bitcoin’s value has dropped below $8,000 for the first time since late November. This represents a fall of about 20% from its recent highpoint of over $10,000 per coin and adds to fears that a crash could be imminent after it stood at just under $1,000 at the start of this year.
Cryptocurrencies have been trading mostly sideways for much of this year, with bitcoin prices hovering between around $6,500 and $8,500 over the last four months or so. There hasn’t been any significant movement in bitcoin prices since it surged past US$11,000 per coin on December 7th, 2017. However, that all changed when news emerged yesterday evening (UTC) that South Korea’s justice minister was preparing a bill to ban all cryptocurrencies exchanges in the country.
South Korea is one of the largest buyers and sellers of bitcoin worldwide, so its decision could have major ramifications for both bitcoin prices and altcoins. This fall in bitcoin prices over the last 24 hours has sent many alternative currencies into freefall, with most recording declines of more than 15% on the day.
Monero Price Rises to Five-Week High
The value of Monero has climbed to its highest levels for almost five weeks. The price jumped as high as $255 per token, pushing its market cap to more than $3 billion and briefly making it the ninth-largest cryptocurrency. It also marked a third successive day of gains for payments-focused altcoin Monero, which celebrated its fifth birthday last week.
While the price of bitcoin has fallen by around 20% since this time yesterday, and many other major cryptocurrencies have also suffered similar declines, Ripple’s XRP token is bucking the trend and rising in value. As per Brian Colombiana, it reached a new all-time high of $1.02 on December 30th but remains at third position after today’s fall out of the top two for now.
