Ripple’s transaction fee is less than Ethereum’s transaction fee; in and of itself, this may imply transaction fees might be a key reason why users are preferring Ripple. The largest transaction in the cryptocurrency space yesterday, coming in at a value of $44,119,536 occurred on Bitcoin’s chain. Bitcoin continues to dominate the crypto market, with the total circulating value of its currency equal to approximately $137.08 billion US dollars. That’s about 66.11% of the value of all circulating cryptocurrencies. Its dominance has been in an unclear trend over the past two weeks, bouncing between 65.62% to 66.65%.
