It is the first time in crypto history that three stablecoin market valuations have existed in the top ten market cap positions.

There hasnt been another time when three stablecoins command a top ten position and fiat-pegged tokens have been a prominent force in the crypto ecosystem. Tether (USDT) has a significantly large $83.3 billion market capitalization, which represents 4.78% of the entire crypto economy.

USDC has $48.7 billion market capitalization, which equates to 2.79% of the $1.7 trillion crypto economy. Terrausd (UST) has a valuation of around $18.76 billion and it represents 1.07% of the aggregate value of all 13,439 crypto assets combined.

5 Crypto Assets Represent 66.44% of the Crypto Economy, BUSD and DAI Hold Positions in the Top 20

Between all three of the stablecoins in the top ten, USDT, USDC, and UST represent 8.64% of the crypto economy’s fiat value. That’s pretty large seeing how bitcoin’s (BTC) market valuation is 39.2% and ethereum’s (ETH) capitalization is 18.6% of today’s $1.7 trillion total.

BTC, ETH, USDT, USDC, and UST equate to 66.44% of the entire crypto economy’s capitalization on May 6, 2022. In addition to the prominence of three stablecoins in the top ten crypto market positions, the Binance stablecoin BUSD is currently in the 11th spot with a $17.5 billion market cap.

Besides USDT, USDC, and UST, there’s only two stablecoin projects in the top 20 largest crypto market valuations. The stablecoins include BUSD and Makerdao’s decentralized stablecoin DAI.

Years ago when stablecoins were scoffed at and taken for granted, it’s likely no one thought the fiat-pegged token project’s would be top ten contenders. Furthermore, the entire lot of stablecoins today is worth $189.52 billion. Out of today’s $110.46 billion in global trade volume, stablecoin swaps represent $75.82 billion of Friday’s volume.
