In their day-to-day life, cryptocurrency traders check CoinMarketCap to evaluate the market capitalisation of all coins. CoinMarketCap has undoubtedly been one key tool for monitoring live prices, however, compared with some competitors, they are falling behind on the main vision.
Here is where FiatMarketCap.com its currently changing the status quo by listing the BTC value of the most important fiat currencies in the world. The creators of the website, fully believe that Bitcoin will be an important store of value in the years to come and it is interesting to see how BTC ranks 35th in the list, with a total market cap of $201,07 Billion.
The site uses money supply metrics such as M1, M2 and M3. Those economic indicators are publicly published by Central Banks on each quarter, and now FiatMarketCap has used them to create a meaningful comparison between BTC market cap and the current circulating supply of many currencies.
According to the data, the Chinese Yuan ranks first in the list, with the total CNY money supply worth 2.4 Billion BTC (at 1,291 sats). The second highest-ranking fiat currency is the US Dollar, worth 1,3 Billion BTC (at 8,883 sats) followed by the Euro, the Pound and the Yen.
On the contrary, there are many currencies with significant low values in BTC, such as Paraguayan Guarani (PYG), Tajikistani Somoni (TJS) and Liberian Dollar (LRD).
In conclusion, with BTC adding more investors every day, it will be very interesting to see how this leaderboard changes during the next couple of years. Cryptocurrency adoption won’t stop adding followers and people are surely going to need a place to monitor BTC value in major sovereign currencies, so thumbs up FiatMarketCap!
