A 50 percent pump for crypto markets in May with BTC, ETH, BCH, EOS and IOTA gaining more than 50 percent each.
For a fourth month this year, crypto markets have surged with May market performance being the best so far. Total market capitalization surged by 50 percent in May, largely driven by Bitcoin which made it to $9,000. A ten month high of $285 billion was hit on May 30 before a slight pullback. Gains have been impressive for most of the top crypto assets and some have doubled in price.
