Exchange tokens are digital tokens issued by cryptocurrency exchanges, such as Binance Coin. Currency-like assets are represented by BTC. The report classifies Chainlink (LINK) as a token used in other applications and Monero (XMR) as an anonymous coin.
The report notes that remittance-related assets (e.g., XRP) outperformed the rest of the cryptocurrency market last November, while DeFi-assets (e.g., Uniswap) gained momentum in January and early February.
Notably, Proof-of-Stake assets have shown higher returns than Proof-of-Work assets since late 2019. PoS assets have had a return of more than 1,000%, while PoW assets have had only about 500%.
What stands out is the dominance of a couple of assets, which significantly differentiates cryptocurrencies from other asset classes. According to the firm, BTC accounts for 46% of the cryptocurrency market and ETH accounts for 20%. By comparison, the top two stocks in the S&P 500 Index account for about 12% of market capitalization.
