Corindex presents the January 2019 monthly Cryptocurrency Market Activity report, comprised of various indicators specifically designed to present and express market dynamics in the cryptocurrency sphere.
98.45% of all cryptocurrency exchange operations were analyzed and converted into tangible data to deliver this Corindex report to you.
June 2019 Cryptocurrencies Market Activity account is split into 5 chapters, each dedicated to a particular indicator and its monthly performance. For each indicator, only 10 currencies that had shown the biggest change during the analyzed period are put on display.
This way we’re keeping the report concise while ensuring that you won’t miss any of the truly important developments.
The first chapter of this report is dedicated to the cryptocurrency monthly transaction volume expressed in United States dollars. Having cemented the position of the most important success indicator in the early days of crypto, transaction volume remains one of the most simple yet effective ways to assess the market state.
True to its “King of crypto” title, Bitcoin remains well ahead of the competition with 668 471 303 711,00 USD in monthly volume, even though this is -5.32% less than during the previous 30-day period.
Ethereum had a decrease in volume as well, but of -12.09%, and is now down to 269 403 126 859,00 USD.
Litecoin had the third largest transaction volume during July — 134 521 045 409,00 USD, which is 7.81% more than during May.
EOS remained almost entirely stable with a negligible negative dynamics of -0.04% which put it at fourth place with 86 816 755 120,00 USD of monthly volume.
Bitcoin Cash closes the top 5. Having dropped by -25.44%, it now has 58 995 720 114,00 USD and may well trade places with Ripple that declined by -14.29% down to 55 702 312 671,00 USD.
Cryptocurrency price is directly responsible for market capitalization, but even more so than on stock market since the amount of coins of each cryptocurrency that would ever be created is a pre-decided number and is released to the public before the crowdfunding, be that ICO, IPO, IOE, or some other form of it, starts.
Consequently, there is no way to conduct additional funding rounds, aside from selling coins from the developer fund, which a) is usually frozen and b) may draw a lot of negativity from the already existing community c) Will likely decrease the capitalisation, since the number of coins remained the same and price is prone to drop because of increased supply.
As a result, the increase in the cryptocurrency price is the only way its market capitalization may increase and that’s why it’s so important. Ergo the second chapter of this report is dedicated to the quantifiable changes to cryptocurrency Prices.
