Three Leading Cryptocurrencies Hit $207bn in Market Cap, a 40% Jump in Six Months

The economic effects of the coronavirus outbreak have sent investors in search of assets that can offer shelter during the stock market fluctuations. Due to their decentralized nature, cryptocurrencies positioned as an inflation-resistant hedge.

According to data gathered by Buy Shares, the market capitalization of the three leading cryptocurrencies reached $207bn last week, a 40% jump since the beginning of the year.

Market Cap Surged 90% After COVID-19 Crash

In January, the market capitalization of Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Tether, as the three leading cryptocurrencies amounted to $148.86bn, revealed the CoinMarketCap data. Due to the COVID-19 crash, this value tumbled to $106.51bn on March 15th, almost 30% drop since the beginning of the year.

The increasing trend continued in the following weeks, with the figure growing by $4.6bn and reaching $206.97bn on July 12th.
