What is Crypto Market Capitalization?
Crypto market capitalization, or market cap, is the cumulative value of all coins of a specific cryptocurrency that are currently mined or in circulation. It is a crucial metric in the cryptocurrency world, used to gauge the rank and market share of various cryptocurrencies. The market cap of a crypto coin is a product of the total number of coins in circulation and their prevailing market price. For instance, if you want to calculate the market cap of Bitcoin, you multiply the total number of Bitcoin in circulation with the current price of one Bitcoin.
How to Evaluate Cryptocurrencies Market Cap?
The crypto market cap is generally divided into three categories:
Large-cap cryptocurrencies (>$10 billion)
Mid-cap Cryptocurrencies ($1 billion - $10 billion)
Small-cap cryptocurrencies (<$1 billion).
Market cap serves as a financial indicator that allows for the comparison of the total value of one cryptocurrency to another. Large cap cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and Ethereum have a market cap exceeding $10 billion, usually made up of protocols with proven track records and a vibrant community of developers committed to maintaining and improving the protocol, and creating new projects on top of them. While market cap serves as a straightforward comparison metric, it's not without its flaws. Some cryptocurrencies may show a higher market cap due to price volatility and the tokenomics of their supply. Therefore, it's essential to use market cap in conjunction with other metrics like trading volume, liquidity, fully diluted valuation, and fundamentals when conducting research.

The 24h trading volume denotes the total amount of a cryptocurrency that has been bought and sold on all exchanges in the last 24 hours in the spot market. For example, if Ethereum's 24h volume is $15 billion, it implies that Ether worth $15 billion has been traded across all exchanges in the past 24 hours.
