Many investors regard market capitalization as the best means of estimating an altcoin’s return on investment (ROI). The ROI is the amount of money you might make from the cryptocurrency. Identifying those altcoins that have a higher ROI can help you make more money in the cryptocurrency market. Understanding the Market Cap can also help you avoid those altcoins with less moneymaking potential. What is the Cryptocurrency Market Cap?

The Market Cap is calculated by multiplying the Circulating Supply of a cryptocurrency by the Coin Price.

How to Analyze a Cryptocurrency’s Investment Potential

Analyzing and understanding the potential price and value of a cryptocurrency can be both tricky and frustrating. There are no quick and dirty methods of analysis that can forecast an altcoin’s price, but there some parameters that can help you understand where it might go and how to gauge if the coin is (still) a good potential investment.

Researching these will give you a better, but not always clearer, understanding of what is happening with the market. Why you need to know the Total Supply of a Cryptocurrency The Total Supply (also known as ‘fully distributed market cap’) of a cryptocurrency is all the altcoins of that specific currency in existence that are circulating and the ones released in the future.

What is a DEX (Decentralized Exchange)?

There are two types of cryptocurrency exchanges in operation today, centralized exchanges and decentralized exchanges. Investors should understand the difference between them before trading. A decentralized exchange (DEX) is a marketplace for cryptocurrencies or blockchain investments that is totally open sourced. Nobody is in control at a DEX, instead buyers and sell deal with each other on a one-on-one basis via peer-peer (P25) trading applications. A good way to think of a DEX is as a “do-it-yourself trading solution.” You make the trades and hold the funds or instruments in your own account. The biggest advantage to this system...
