Tron (TRX) Surpasses Bitcoin (BTC) as Ripple (XRP) Threatens Ether (ETH)

0 Total shares

One way of measuring the future success of the major cryptocurrency pairs differs from the ubiquitous market cap comparisons. According to the traditional measurement, Bitcoin (BTC) remains the king cryptocurrency. With an over 45% market share, this does not look like it will be changing any time soon.

There was a day not so long ago when BTC held over 50% of the market cap market share. Something is changing. The digital assets’ kingpin appears to be losing its mojo as well as slipping in its market share.

One of the best places to look at up-and-coming cryptocurrencies is through Twitter discussions. Cointrendz recently compiled an analysis on where the various cryptocurrency majors are today in this interesting and important ranking. The biggest surprise, Bitcoin’s dethroning.

The Cointrendz analysis found that Tron (TRX) has surpassed BTC already. TRX is now the most heavily discussed digital coin anywhere on Twitter. It is an ominous moment for the original and still-dominant digital asset.

Ether On the Verge of Losing Its Spot as the Silver of Cryptocurrencies

The news gets more disturbing for diehard fans of the major cryptocurrencies. The same analysis found that ETH is on the verge of losing its key spot as number two digital asset. XRP is nipping on the heels of ETH on Twitter and could pass it in the very next survey and analysis.

What Are The Top 10 Digital Assets Rankings According to Twitter Talk?

The final rankings from this Cointrendz analysis were revealing. TRX is number one (for the first time ever). This provides it with an enormous reputation boost on social media today. BTC is the number two most discussed on Twitter. Ether is now third, followed dangerously closely by challenger XRP. Ripple has gained in the rankings because of its new XRP Tip Bot. This function allows users to reward each other with so-called tips for talking up XRP on Reddit, Twitter, and Discord.

The rest of the top 10 cryptocurrencies most discussed on Twitter are not completely unexpected. Number four is Ethereum Classic (ETC). NEO is at fifth place. Litecoin (LTC), Stellar Lumen (XLM), Verge (XVG), and Cardano (ADA) make up the balance of the top 10 digital assets as discussed by people on Twitter.
