The Analysis of Top Digital Currencies
The dominance of bitcoin from 45 percent has drastically declined to 36 percent in April. Ethereum has experienced some tangible gains, increasing from about 9 percent in December last year, to 17 percent now. While the value of bitcoin has decreased by 36 percent from December last year, Bitcoin Cash (BCH) has seen some increase in its value, and also market-share, but it is still under Ripple which presently stands at 7.7 percent.
The Value of Bitcoin Cash
Bitcoin Cash experienced an increase in value against the USD on May 5, 2018, with a double-figure increase of 12 percent up to $1,688, which means the digital currency experienced an increase of about $200 in 24 hours.
This increase might be as a result of the forthcoming much anticipated May 15th Hard-fork upgrade. The second leading and most valuable digital currency, Ethereum (ETH), is currently trading at $808 with an increase of 4.1 percent in the last 24 hours. Since the beginning of March this year, the level hasn’t been altered by the pair ETH/USD – according to coinmarketcap.com.
