New DataLight study vividly shows how the top 10 biggest cryptocurrencies by market capitalization changed throughout the years. Bitcoin (BTC), Litecoin (LTC), and XRP (XRP) are the only cryptocurrencies that stood the test of time and didn’t cede ground to competitors.

Bitcoin and XRP remain at the top

Five years ago, as expected, Bitcoin was the king with a market capitalization of around $7.5 bln. On Feb. 24, 2014, its market dominance was at a whopping 88 percent. Litecoin (LTC), the early Bitcoin spin-off, was only the second biggest currency while XRP was only vying to dethrone it.

Dogecoin (DOGE), the very first memecoin, was in the top 5, and it occupies 27th place at the time of writing. BitShares (BTS), another top 10 entry, also managed to stay in the top 50 after five years.

Crypto fads of 2014

While the aforementioned coins sound familiar, newbies might be surprised to see Peercoin (PPC) in fourth place since it’s currently not even in the top 200 biggest cryptocurrencies. Nxt (NXT), Namecoin (NMC) are also outside of the top 200.

Omni (OMNI), the seventh coin, is sitting at 655th spot on CMC. Meanwhile, Quark (QRK), which was the tenth biggest cryptocurrency five years ago, has a tiny market cap of $1.2 mln, staying at 1249th place. The project looks pretty much dead at this point.

The situation on the cryptocurrency market has not changed a lot comparing to Thursday. Prices of most coins out of the top 10 have been reduced, however, there are 2 exceptions from the rule. Binance Coin and Litecoin are those ones that keep going up when other coins are ’’relaxing’’.   

Especially it is remarkable for BNB, whose rate has exceeded $20.


BTC’s domination rate is stagnating and now constitutes 52%.

BTC/USD

Friday, Apr. 19 has started for the main cryptocurrency with a red bullish candle, pushed down BTC from $5,274 to the $5,200 mark. Currently, the quotes are trading in the $5,200 - $5,250 corridor.

BTC/USD chart by tradingview

Yesterday, the main cryptocurrency managed to overcome the resistance of the Fibonacci level and tested the mark of $5,276 (61.8%).

If today we manage to return to this level, then the path to the $5,300 mark is possible. The target level of bulls will be reached, after which a pullback will start to fix positions.

On the whole, the BTC maintains an upward priority, but in the coming days, a flat range is also possible.

The price of BTC is trading at $5,256 at the time of writing.

ETH/USD

A general picture for Ethereum is even better than for BTC, as its price has not reduced so much.  Yesterday, the asset touched the $176 mark but was not able to consolidate it and rolled back to $170.

However, taking into account fundamental factors, some Ethereum based projects have started to migrate to Binance Chain network. If such a trend continues, it could negatively affect the ETH’s rate.

The price of ETH is trading at $171.89 at the time of writing.

XRP/USD

Ripple is the biggest loser from the top 3 coins, as its rate has dropped by more than 2% over the last 24 hours.
