share of Global crypto Market cap explained

The charts above yield insight into the relative strength of each cryptocurrency's market cap, compared to others and compared to the global market cap of all cryptocurrencies combined. As the first cryptocurrency ever, with the largest network effect, Bitcoin is the clear leader when it comes to most metrics, no less so concerning its share of the global cryptocurrency market cap. Though it has many competitors, Bitcoin has become a digital gold-like commodity that deserves serious consideration from merchants, users and savers around the globe.
