Today, we're talking about Bitcoin's battle for the top spot in the highest-capitalized cryptocurrencies. I also talk about a new investment in Ripple Labs and other topics in the cryptocurrency world.
The crypto-data analysis platform DataLight has created an interesting new graph. The graph spread quickly across Twitter and is now the first place on Reddit for cryptocurrency. The animated chart shows the market capitalization of the ten largest cryptocurrencies since 2013. The viewer can see how the capitalization of the cryptocurrencies has changed over time.

The graph shows Bitcoin's market capitalization since 2013. During this time, the competitors change places and change their capitalization. It is noticeable that Bitcoin perpetually towers above all others. The only cryptocurrency that came close to Bitcoin's market capitalization was Ethereum. This was in 2017, when Ethereum had a market capitalization of $ 34 billion. Bitcoin was $ 43 billion at the time.
The chart is also interesting for another reason. It illustrates how big the distance from Bitcoin to other cryptocurrencies really is.

Ripples Xpring has announced on Medium that they have invested in Bolt Labs. Bolt Labs is a start-up company working to facilitate private transactions on existing blockchain networks. These private transactions should also be executed quickly and at low cost.
