During the last 35 days, ethereum has lost a significant amount of market dominance leading up to The Merge. On August 14, 2022, the second leading crypto asset by market capitalization, ethereum, had a market dominance of around 19.5% but three days after the transition to proof-of-stake (PoS), it’s down 13% lower to 16.8%.

In 35 Days, Ethereum’s Market Dominance Slides 13% Lower

Ethereum’s market valuation has dropped a great deal during the past month after reaching $1,996 per unit on August 14, 2022. At that time, ethereum’s market cap was $239.74 billion, and ETH’s market dominance out of the $1.225 trillion crypto economy was roughly 19.5%. Bitcoin’s market dominance was approximately 38.2% at the time, and 35 days ago, BTC’s market valuation was around $470.79 billion.

While BTC’s market dominance has remained roughly the same, the crypto economy’s net value of $1.225 trillion back in August has plunged to today’s $994 billion. The crypto economy has lost 2.2% in USD value during the last 24 hours. Ethereum’s market dominance is now down to 16.8% after the second leading crypto asset’s market cap slipped from $239 billion to today’s $166.64 billion.

ETH has taken significant losses as 24-hour statistics show ether is down 5.8% on Sunday and 22.4% over the past seven days. While bitcoin (BTC) is down 1.4% on Sunday, BTC’s weekly stats indicate the leading crypto asset by market cap is down 9.1% against the U.S. dollar. During the past day, $58.13 billion in global swaps were executed across the entire crypto economy, and $12.17 billion or just over 20% of that volume has been ETH trades.

Ethereum has a broad spectrum of trading pairs with BUSD leading the pack capturing 35.10% of today’s ETH swaps. Tether (USDT) commands 33.34% of Sunday’s ethereum trades, and USD captures 9.78%. The greenback is followed by BTC swaps representing 4.45% of ETH pairs, JPY commands 2.33%, and the stablecoin USDC captures 2.23% of ETH’s trade volume. Binance and FTX are ETH’s most active trading platforms on September 18.

The Merge brought minimal gains to ethereum as year-to-date (YTD) statistics show ETH is down 59.6% and during the past 30 days, the second leading crypto asset by market cap lost 25.4%. During the past 24 hours on Sunday, ETH’s trading range has been between $1,471 per unit to $1,376 per unit. In addition to YTD data, ETH is down 71.7% since the $4,878 all-time price high printed ten months ago on November 10, 2021.
