Ethereum remains the second largest crypto in total market cap, right behind Bitcoin. Some details about the current market situation were intimated by Crypto Quant as shared on Twitter. Crypto Quant is an entity that specializes in crypto data analytics.



According to CQ, Ethereum’s trading volume is comparable to that of Bitcoin despite BTC being the top coin in market cap and price. Regarding market cap, BTC stands at 39.7%, while ETH takes up 19.8%. The rest is shared among the numerous other cryptocurrencies in the market. This shows that ETH is gaining traction among investors and traders compared to other altcoins.

In a blog post, CQ claims that Ethereum’s trading volume has been just as dominant as Bitcoin’s almost daily in August. This comes amid growing anticipation of the Ethereum Merge event that will take the network from the PoW working model to PoS.
