Is The Glass Half-Full Or Half-Empty?
This might be the great question that bitcoin investors are asking themselves after news of bitcoin’s falling in the market share in the crypto market. The question is, Bitcoin is not the only cryptocurrency with a falling market share.
The top 10 most-traded cryptocurrencies have lost approximately 26% of their share of the total market cap for cryptocurrencies since the beginning of 2017. But those losses have occurred amid spectacular gains for the currencies themselves and the market as a whole.

“Each coin’s usage “should become increasingly relevant as the novelty of crypto wears off.”
