The year 2018 has not been all that great in terms of overall cryptocurrency market momentum. All of the top currencies are on the decline, yet it would appear the overall interest in these currencies is not on the decline. The following 6 cryptocurrencies and assets ranked highest in terms of purchase volume in US Dollars. Data is provided by Statista.
It may seem rather surprising to see Ethereum Classic on this list. The currency has been making inroads among institutional investors as of late. As such, it generates more purchase volume than Dash, Litecoin, or even XRP. With $254.28m in volume purchased throughout the first eight months of 2018, ETC is making some very interesting moves in quick succession.
