The Report is Out!!

CoinGecko is proud to announce the release of our seventh quarterly crypto report – the 2019 Q1 Crypto Report. This 48-page report gives an overview of the state of the cryptoasset market and the major events that happened in the first quarter of 2019.

This quarterly report was made possible with the collaboration of Dapp.com, EthHub, Cent, The Bounties Network, and Kyber Network. Together, these 5 companies helped contribute to the decentralized apps (Dapp) and Ethereum ecosystem sections of the report.

Market Dynamics

In the first quarter of 2019, total network value of all cryptoassets were up 16.23%. Among the top 5 coins, most saw a positive increase in price with Litecoin and EOS seeing the best returns of 103% and 66% respectively. Bitcoin and Ethereum saw modest growth of 11% and 8% while XRP saw its price declined by 11%.

This quarter saw Ethereum claiming back its position as the second most valuable cryptoasset by network value. There were 3 new entrants to the top-30 list – Cosmos (ATOM), Basic Attention Token (BAT) and Crypto.com Chain (CRO).

Exchange-based tokens saw strong growth with OKEx’s OKB token and Binance Coin (BNB) being the largest gainers, gaining 6 and 5 places respectively. With the increase, Binance Coin (BNB) is now in the top-10 list ending the quarter in 8th position.

For this quarter’s report, we have decided to highlight major events that happened in each month.

January : MimbleWimble

January saw the launch of two new coins, Grin and Beam, which makes use of a new privacy protocol called MimbleWimble. The launch of both these coins were highly anticipated as it represents a fundamental improvement to blockchain privacy and scalability.

February : Initial Exchange Offering (IEO)

Initial Exchange Offering (IEO) became a major topic of discussion for February. IEO became popular after the wildly successful token sale of the Bittorrent (BTT) on Binance Launchpad. The successful Bittorrent IEO made other exchanges took notice and rushed to start their respective IEOs.

That being said, it remains to be seen if the IEO trend can sustain. Looking at the return of the three Binance Launchpad IEO in February, we can see that returns have been decreasing and that purchasers have been dumping the tokens immediately after market became open for trading.

March : Cosmos

March saw the launch of Cosmos (ATOM), a project that aims to solve blockchain interoperability. We spend some time going through the details of Cosmos in this report.

Lightning Network

Quarter 1 also saw the Lightning Torch being passed on Twitter. The Lightning Torch is a social experiment that aims to showcase the capabilities of Bitcoin’s Lightning Network.

We end the Q1 report with an overview of Dapps and a highlight of 4 Ethereum ecosystem projects.

Wouldn't be possible without the help from your awesome team!

This report is incredible! It looks amazing, and is absolutely jam-packed.

The user activity on Dapps is incredible. I thought the Steem apps did well, but their overall user base is so much smaller than the others. I guess it's a case of fewer apps but higher daily activity.

I can't get over how amazing and professional this report is... I'm going to have to read it again. So much to unpack... I knew a little bit about most of these projects, but certainly not in the detail you've provided. Thanks for sharing!

The DApp numbers are very interesting although it is still heavily tilted towards gambling. At this point, that is the biggest use case for blockchain DApps.

·
·

There's no denying that. On the hand, historically, the first use cases for the internet also happens to be gambling. It should seem that it is the natural adoption curve of good world-changing technologies.

·

Glad you loved it! We've designed the content within this report in such a way that it doesn't matter who's reading - crypto newcomer all through professional researchers, all have something to gain out of it.

The size of Steem's userbase does look small when placed side-by-side against other networks. Even so, it's undeniable that we're seeing growth regardless.

Take your time! and if you're happy to share what you've learned, we're more than happy to read it!

Thanks for this thorough insight in the market (and good to see it a little more bullish again^^).

It IS a cause for celebration - maybe not celebration, more like relief, to see the bear taking the backseat for a change.

We hope you get some good info out of it, also it'd be super awesome to read your opinions or comments from what you learn out of the report if you're inclined to share!

Coingecko is my preference when I check coin status, prices and the chart... With this it is easy to use because one has only to fill the amount to be converted and right away, one knows how much is expected in the conversion in seconds... Good platform.
