The aggregate value of all crypto-currencies today set a new historical maximum and exceeded the $ 150 billion mark.
According to CoinMarketCap, at the time of publication of the article, the market capitalization of Ethereum , bitcoin and other 800+ crypto-currencies is $ 153,650,785,771.
This suggests that the crypto-currency market continues to grow at a steady pace. Over the past seven days, it has grown by 13 percent, for the last month – by 67 percent and by 1,240 percent more than last year.
However, the most noteworthy is that the new maximum occurred at the time when none of the top-level crypto-currencies established a new historical record of value.
At the time of publication, the cost of bitcoin was $ 4.209, and Ethereum – $ 322. This is less than their record figures – $ 4,500 and $ 400, respectively. In addition, the most popular altcoyins: litecoin , monero and dash also did not show any extraordinary growth.
The only breakthrough is the Ripple XRP token, released by a start-up in San Francisco, aiming to create corporate solutions based on blockbuster technology . Over the past 24 hours, XRP has grown more than 50% to $ 0.28, and this despite the fact that yesterday this crypto currency also showed a serious increase of about 30%.
