The price of bitcoin and a number of other popular cryptocurrencies have been collectively holding a market valuation of around $255 billion. The fiat value of these cryptocurrencies has slipped downwards during the last four days. Despite the weekly losses of around 3-6%, many digital currency proponents are still very optimistic. Mainly because of how well crypto markets have performed during the coronavirus outbreak and the global economy’s current hardships.
Entire Crypto Market Cap Still Hovers Above a Quarter of a Trillion US Dollars
Digital currency supporters can safely say that so far, crypto assets have performed extremely well since the March 12, 2020 market carnage, otherwise known as ‘Black Thursday.’ The entire crypto economy of over 5,000 cryptocurrencies is currently worth $255 billion using today’s exchange rates. Today, BTC is trading for $9,156 per coin and has around $4.8 billion in 24-hour global trades.
Ethereum (ETH) is swapping for $207 per unit and there’s just under $2 billion worth of ETH trade volume on Sunday. The digital currency XRP is still commanding the third-largest position by market cap as each coin is trading for $0.19. The stablecoin tether (USDT) is the fourth largest market valuation today and the USDT market is worth $5.74 billion.
