Bitcoin Cash was paced at the 31st position.
Bitcoin is Still Dominant
A report has made it known that Bitcoin is struggling greatly with the fact that payment confirmation on the network is still quite slow. This has made it a less attractive payment solution compared to other advanced networks. There has also been the previous report of a drop in bitcoin’s adoption, especially when taking settling payments or creating decentralized applications (Dapp) into consideration. A report also made it known that the blockchain project is currently relying on a third party solution to fix its prevailing scalability issue. All these factors have been pointed at to be responsible for bitcoin’s drop in ranking.
Importantly, bitcoin is still the most popular crypto and also the most dominant in terms of trading volume and overall adoptions. For Creativity, bitcoin was given an index point of 34.6. This is the highest on the list.
