Why Crypto Market Cap is Important

The market capitalization of a cryptocurrency project is an important (and often misunderstood) metric for evaluating both the growth potential and market position of the project (relative to other cryptocurrency projects). Understanding cryptocurrency market capitalization can help you to become a better and more profitable investor.

What is Market Capitalization?

Market capitalization is calculated by multiplying the current market price of a single coin/token by the circulating supply of coins/tokens in the market.

How Does Market Cap Help with Evaluating Growth Potential?

If a crypto project has a market capitalization of $1 million, the market capitalization of the project would have to double to realize a 2x in the price of the coin/token.

In the example of Bitcoin, for the price of Bitcoin to exceed $100,000, (effectively 2x the current price), the market capitalization of Bitcoin would have to also double from its current one trillion dollars to two trillion dollars, effectively becoming bigger than the entire market capitalization of the current cryptocurrency market!

When compared to lower market capitalization projects, the advantage lower capitalization projects have is that they can increase market capitalization much easily, and as a result significant price appreciation can take place, which is why they are often the preferred choice for many cryptocurrency investors.

What are the Market Capitalization Levels in Cryptocurrency?

Since the cryptocurrency market is much smaller than the traditional stock market, the market capitalization levels have been slightly adjusted to reflect this. Still, in general, the market capitalization levels in cryptocurrency, look like this:

Cryptocurrency Market Cap Levels

Mega >$200 Billion

The mega-market capitalization level is the highest capitalization level available in the cryptocurrency market. Cryptocurrencies that are more than $200 billion are included in this level. Currently, only Bitcoin and Ethereum fall into this category.itLarge $10B - $200B

The second-largest classification includes those cryptocurrencies that are traded between $10 billion and $200 billion range. These cryptocurrencies typically include the top twenty cryptocurrencies (by market cap), however, it is dependent on the current market cycle (bull/bear).

Projects that fall within the Mega and Large market capitalization levels are also typically considered the 'Blue-Chip' Crypto Projects as these cryptocurrencies are generally considered the most popular and stable (relative) of all cryptocurrency investments.

Mid-Market $1B - $10B

At any given time there are around 50–60 projects which fall into the mid-market level of market capitalization and this includes projects with a market capitalization of between $1 billion to $10 billion.

These cryptocurrencies are considered to have a much higher degree of volatility than large and mega capitalization and offer the investor but also offer an opportunity for high-growth projects.

Small Market $100M - $1B

At any given time there are around 150–200 cryptocurrency projects which fall into the small market capitalization level. Within the small-market capitalization is where we start to find cryptocurrencies with large growth potential and potential for an excellent return on investment. Although this category offers a higher potential for growth, it also has the potential for high volatility and risk.

There are also even smaller capitalization levels...

Micro Market $10M - $100M

There are anywhere between 600 and 900 crypto projects which fit into the Micro-Market level and the prices for these projects can range anywhere from a couple of hundred dollars to fractions of a penny.

It's within this category we find the largest proportion of what is commonly referred to as 'penny cryptos'. The micro-market includes projects with a market capitalization of between $10 million and $100 million. These are cryptocurrencies that are often traded under one penny. While many of these coins have the potential for massive percentage gains given their low value, they are also highly volatile and susceptible to pump-and-dump schemes.

Nano Market $1M - $10M

Market Capitalization between $1 million to $10 million we consider the Nano Market. There are more than 1,000 cryptocurrency projects that fit into this market capitalization level and it's within this market capitalization level some of the world's best-performing cryptocurrencies first entered the market. It's also the domain of shitcoins and where many crypto projects go to die.

Market Capitalization as a Metric.

Using market capitalization as a metric helps you know the relative position of a cryptocurrency project (when compared to other crypto projects) and can offer insight into the realistic growth potential of a project.

Using market capitalization as a metric is also a way to diversify your investment portfolios by understanding the risk and growth potential associated with large-cap (more stable, lower growth potential) versus small-cap (higher risk, higher growth potential) investments.
