Zcash (ZEC), Litecoin (LTC), and Dash (DASH) Had Biggest One-Year Increase in Circulating Supply

From rags to riches  

Bitcoin, the very first cryptocurrency, was listed on an exchange for the first time in June 2010 at the price of $0.30. At the time of writing this article, BTC’s price is comfortably sitting at $3,946.09 while struggling to surpass the psychologically important mark of $4,000.

Ethereum’s (ETH) price increased 68,205 percent (from $0.2 to $136.61 since its very first listing that took place in August 2014). Dash (DASH) comes in third place with a 39,509.52 percent increase.

Coins that failed investors  

Binance Coin (BNB), NEM (XEM), and XRP (XRP) are also among the top 10 most profitable coins.

Meanwhile, Zcash (ZEC), Bitcoin Gold (BTG) and Bitcoin Cash (BCH) are the currencies with the biggest loss. ZEC started trading at $4,293 in 2016 while currently trading at $50.82, which gives us a 98.82 percent drop. However, the coin did increase its CMC position as its supply started growing.

There are ten currencies in the top 30 that decreased in value after their initial listing.
