Goodbye Monday blues! It’s time to be bullish. The total crypto market capitalization has reached $1 trillion. The crypto market capitalization is now nearly as valuable as all of the silver on Earth.
The price pump for Bitcoin (BTC), which brought the world’s decentralized cryptocurrency to the $22,500 mark, and Ethereum (ETH) saw a double-digit “giga pumps” to reach the $1,500 mark. They have combined their efforts to bring about a 4.8% pump for the entire crypto market, pushing it up to $1.02 trillion.
The crypto market cap has risen to over 1 trillion dollars! Is it too soon to get bullish on crypto?

Bitcoin has reclaimed $420 billion market capital, while Ethereum sits at $180 billion. Ethereum gained more than $20 billion over the last 24 hours. The graph below shows that the crypto market reached $1 trillion for the first time on June 13.

Reminder on market capitalizations: In the case of Bitcoin, and most other mined cryptocurrency, the “marketcap” refers the total value all coins mined. It’s easy to calculate Bitcoin’s market capitalization: Divide the total Bitcoin mined (a little more than 19,096,775) by current Bitcoin price, approximately $22,000.
Crypto advocates on Twitter were happy to hear that the trillion-dollar mark had been reached. While they were quick to celebrate this historic milestone, others, like DonAlt, questioned whether the new price levels might indicate a bullish turn.
Now that BTC has risen and ETH is mooning, what price level would you expect a bull market to confirm for you guys?

The market is desperate to soak up bullish news after months of fear and greed.

However, before you reach for the champagne, think about the historic crypto market cap record. It reached $3 trillion in the fourth quarter of 2021, which means $2 trillion was lost.

In April 2021, the crypto market cap was equal to Apple stock. It then surpassed $3 trillion. However, Apple’s current value is $2.4 trillion and crypto’s is $1 trillion. There are many ways you can go for crypto in order to compete with one of the largest and most well-known companies on the planet.
