Top Cryptocurrencies by Market Capitalization

As of now, there are 1595 cryptocurrencies traded on 9782 markets for a total market capitalization of $297,817,692,334 – however, several currencies dominate the vast majority of this figure. Bitcoin alone accounts for 45% of this amount, and is one of only 20 currencies with a market cap over over $1 billion, as of the time of this writing. Just like the traditional markets, some investors stick to the “blue chip” cryptocurrencies while other look for cheaper currencies (the “pink sheet” currencies) and new currencies offered in ICOs (initial coin offerings), similar to IPOs in the stock markets. Although there have been exponential increases in these lower value currencies (especially close to ICO dates), these 20 currencies with a market cap over $1B are generally less volatile than their less expensive and less established counterparts.
