Crypto recaptures $1 trillion market cap: BTC hits $22K, ETH ‘giga mooning’

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?

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?

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.
