According to Bank for International Settlements, bitcoin is in sixth place in the ranking of the most valuable currency, and superior to the pound, the ruble and won.
This figure is based on the price of bitcoin at $10 765, which means that the total value of all bitcoins in circulation is $ 180 billion.
If bitcoin will rise to $ 15,000, he will overtake the next vysokoporodnyh currency, the rupee. The remaining four currencies, ahead of the bitcoin is yen, yuan, Euro and the dollar, all of which have a much greater volume of currency in circulation (for example, for the dollar, the figure is 1.4 trillion dollars).
Other cryptocurrencies are also in this ranking, and not on the last place. For example, Ethereum takes the 17th place, Bitcoin Cash is at the 20th place. Ripple was a little short to get in the top 20.
These figures, of course, somewhat distorted, because the value of banknotes in circulation does not reflect the total value of the currency. Nevertheless, the figures clearly demonstrate the growing popularity of cryptocurrency.
