Cryptocurrency Ranking May 2019

34
The mood on the cryptocurrency market in May was even better than in April. Currently, we can be sure that crypto winter is gone and the bottom of the Bitcoin’s price was settled around $3500. Shall we be preparing fo the next ATH (All-Time High)? Or maybe BTC’s rate of exchange will be more stable? We will soon find out and now we are presenting the Cryptocurrency Ranking May 2019.
In the February edition of Bithub’s Cryptocurrency Ranking we used for the first time a new method of selecting 30 coins. It is based on 30-day volume. Our new method allows us to examine the most „popular” projects in each month, which cannot be determined by looking at their marketcaps. What is more, the Ranking’s structure will not be pernament – it will gain the possibility of including different coins every month. For this purpose we use data from coinmarketcap. As every month, we present ROI of 30 digital curriencies exluding stablecoins.

Comments

JPK Traders:

The May has come and it brought increases on the cryptocurrency market. Total market capitalization rose to $264B.

Rising prices and total market capitalization did not have an impact on Bitcoin dominance. It oscillated in the 55-60% range.

BTC’s price started it rally from the level of $5300 and got to $8200 (at the time this comment was being written). First barrier was resistance at $8200. Bitcoin’s rate overcame it and now it is being tested as support for further increases. Next target is around $9800.

Nikodem Nawrocki:

Crypto market in May was very fruitful. BTC’s exchange rate was the highest since 2018, major exchanges had highest 24h volumes. It is an obvious sign, that cryptocurriencies are more mainstream than in last years. Total market capitalization significantly increased. In my opinion, this boom is caused by trade war between China and USA. Last days of the month knocked us a little bit out of the rhythm. Everyone expects, that BTC’s price would rise endlessly. Unfortunately, now we can be stuck in lateral movement for a while. Alternatively, there will a correction, test of the support and then we fly again.
