Our German team has been tracking the ranking of the top-100 cryptocurrencies since January, reporting significant changes in a weekly CMC100-Report:

Due to the fears surrounding COVID-19, the crypto markets crashed on Thursday and recorded the worst day in their history. Investors are still extremely fearful.

Some stablecoins like Paxos Standard (PAX), USD Coin (USDC), and Binance Coin (BUSD) were able to strongly gain liquidity amid these extreme market movements. The latter made issuances for the third time in a row and is now ranked higher than its competitor TrueUSD (TUSD).

Excluding stablecoins, all cryptocurrencies are deep in the red. The least bad performer was UNUS SED LEO, the exchange token for Bitfinex and Ethfinex. Compared to Bitcoin, LEO gained +29,5% to trading at 17,016 satoshis.

By far the worst performer was the payment platform Swipe. This is peculiar, since Swipe was one of the top performers in January, but has lost ground since and dropped out of the CMC100-ranking for now.

In the last week, the total market cap of all listed cryptocurrencies dropped -34.4% to $153.7B. The BTC-dominance dropped 0.3 percentage points to 63.7%. In the CMC100-ranking, we have recorded the following major changes:
