Here's What Coin is Currently Most Profitable According to Blockchain Data
An indicator provided by IntoTheBlock tracks addresses with balances of different coins and then compares them with the current prices on the market. According to the indicator, Ethereum remains the most profitable coin among the largest cryptocurrencies on the market.
Ethereum's market performance
While most currencies on the market have entered an active correction phase, Ether was one of the coins that just went deeper into consolidation instead of continuously going down. The second-largest cryptocurrency has lost only 18% from its ATH, while Bitcoin lost 30% in the same period.
Compared to smaller altcoins, Ethereum shows even more impressive results since currencies like SHIB, Doge and ADA are trading with more than a 50% discount from their previous highs.
Memecoins remain in the middle
While Ethereum and other utility coins shine during the global cryptocurrency market correction, the notorious Shiba Inu and Dogecoin memecoins have lost the majority of their value and popularity in the last month.
For any address with a balance of tokens, ITB identifies the average price (cost) at which those tokens were purchased and compares it current price.Addresses at profit:$BTC 78%$ETH 86%$DOGE 55%$SHIBA 56%$MATIC 83%$ALGO 77%Addresses at loss:$ADA 73%$SUSHI 84%$UNI 71% pic.twitter.com/X3oDsA7GDn— IntoTheBlock (@intotheblock) December 13, 2021
With the rapid decrease of buying pressure, Shiba Inu has lost more than 60% of its value in less than a month. Recently, the token suddenly spiked up by approximately 40%, then swiftly dropped down again and now trades at a two-month low.
Dogecoin is also repeating its competitors' fate and losing approximately 50% of its price. Previously, U.Today reported that one of the first memecoins on the market has been rapidly losing popularity among investors.
Cardano among biggest losers
While Ethereum, Matic and Bitcoin holders are enjoying profits, the absolute majority of Cardano investors are still staying in the red zone by losing some of the value of their investments.
Cardano's strong run in the summer received no support afterwards, and the coin lost all of its growth in less than two months by retracing by more than 50%. Cardano's ATH was reached on Sept. 3.Source
