It’s been a while since 2009 when Bitcoin burst onto the scene, revolutionized the financial world, and started us all on our long crypto journey. In the meantime, many other digital assets have been created on the blockchain.

With the list of cryptocurrencies now spanning thousands of coins and tokens, all with different prices, market caps, circulating supplies, and purposes, it’s easy to feel confused or overwhelmed.

Why are there so many cryptocurrencies? Why do they all have different values? What makes one cryptocurrency more valuable than another?

If you’ve ever wondered about any of these questions about the cryptocurrency market, you’ve come to the right place. We’ve compiled everything you need to understand about cryptocurrency prices and their influencing factors.

On Kriptomat, you will easily find information about all cryptocurrencies. The most popular are the Bitcoin price, Ethereum price, and Solana price pages. These three coins account for the majority of the global cryptocurrency market cap. You will find links to simple buying tutorials on every pricing page.

Same as with pricing pages, the most popular pages to buy specific cryptocurrencies are how to buy BTC, how to buy ETH, and how to buy SOL. We have a dedicated page for each cryptocurrency.

Pricing pages include lots of information: 24-hour volume of trades, market cap volume and changes during the past 24 hours, 24-hour liquidity volume, and background information on the crypto currency projects behind the coins and tokens. It’s everything you need to become a confident crypto investor.

We’re here to give you all the information you need to make buying, trading, and investing in cryptocurrencies as simple as possible. Cryptocurrency is all about autonomy, about taking charge of your financial future. You know your needs better than we do, so we won’t trouble you with generic, one-size-fits-all investment advice.

Price history of cryptocurrencies

Crypto price histories tell you all about the historical value of a digital currency. We display them as a chart and a list of past prices. Every cryptocurrency has a different price history. Its analysis can inform you about the coin’s past and help you make future predictions.

Bitcoin was the first cryptocurrency. Its price history stretches back to 2009. Back then, it was worth less than $0.01. Many cryptocurrencies that have launched since are based on Bitcoin’s model. Some were even created through hard forks of Bitcoin’s code. However, cryptocurrency prices quickly diverge due to other differences between the coins.

The first massive surge for Bitcoin came at the end of 2013. Most other crypto currencies experienced similar rallies at the same time or slightly later. The global cryptocurrency market cap fell again in 2014.

Four years later, at the end of 2017, the global crypto market cap representing the total market capitalisation of all cryptocurrencies, rose by about 360% from $180 billion at the start of November 2017 to a peak of over $830 billion in January 2018.

The crypto bull run turned into a crash as most tokens lost a significant portion of their market cap over the subsequent weeks and months.

The next big rally for the cryptocurrency market came in 2021. Crypto exchange rates began rising towards the end of 2020, and in January 2021, the global crypto market cap surpassed $1 trillion for the first time. It was increasing for the rest of the first quarter. By May, it was worth over $2 trillion.

Factors moving cryptocurrency prices

A wide range of different things can affect the price of a cryptocurrency, with varying levels of significance. Some factors are unique to a specific coin or category, while others impact the entire cryptocurrency market.

The strength and events of the broader global economy can affect the crypto market as a whole. Crypto prices mostly do well when global currencies are struggling.

When the economy crashes or poor monetary policies lead to the debasement of fiat currencies, many people look for alternative stores of value to protect their funds. That is why the stock and crypto markets often receive a boost.

Most cryptocurrencies tend to follow what’s known as a boom-and-bust cycle. It is a pattern in which a period of growing excitement and adoption leads to a surge in price before doubt and disillusionment set in and result in a crash.

The investment amount from retail and institutional investors is a huge factor in determining cryptocurrency price. Retail investors can be motivated to buy or sell a particular token because of many things, from technical indicators to rewards of the hype generated by social media.

Institutions have also started investing in major cryptocurrencies. They have larger investment amounts and bigger potential to move the markets. They also increase crypto awareness and confidence among retail investors.

As Bitcoin was the first cryptocurrency and is still the most popular with huge market dominance, Bitcoin’s significant price movements often affect the market cap of other cryptocurrencies. Bitcoin’s major bull runs have formed a pattern around its halving events. These are when the block reward paid to Bitcoin miners is cut in half.

It happens approximately every four years. Most cryptocurrencies have followed a similar pattern.

On top of these more general factors, there are plenty of other influences on crypto prices specific to each coin.

These include a cryptocurrency’s max supply (or lack thereof), emission schedule, public sentiment, the flow of assets on exchanges, the team behind it, rights or rewards for holders, upgrades, integrations, competition, use cases, mainstream adoption, community engagement, and project news and developments.

Live cryptocurrency value and crypto market cap

The live exchange rate of a digital currency is decided by the balance of buyers and sellers on cryptocurrency exchanges. When people buy more coins than they sell, the price increases. When they sell more than they buy, the price decreases.

Stablecoins are digital currencies whose exchange rate closely tracks a stable asset, so their price should remain stable without significant movements. However, other cryptocurrencies tend to be highly volatile. That means the crypto’s live price can change a lot very quickly.

The market capitalisation of a cryptocurrency is equal to the price of one coin multiplied by the number of coins in circulation. As changes in circulating supply are usually gradual for most cryptocurrencies, the movement of a coin’s market cap tends to correlate with its price movement.

We use the market cap to rank cryptocurrencies and determine their market dominance. Bitcoin is at the top of the rankings. It has the largest market cap of all cryptocurrencies and market dominance.

Today’s crypto prices and charts

You can check out the crypto prices today to see the current market price of any particular cryptocurrency. You can see at what price it is bought and sold on an exchange. Kriptomat’s live crypto chart provides additional information. Many crypto tokens will change their exchange rate each moment, so investors like to use live crypto charts to find a good time to buy or sell.

Crypto charts are usually line graphs or charts that display OHLC (open-high-low-close) bars or candles. Charts are sometimes customisable. You can choose the style of the chart and the time intervals displayed.

The pricing information is based on actual completed transactions. The one thing you won’t see is transaction charges like Ethereum (ETH) gas fees. Every trade has a fee that helps pay to maintain the cryptocurrency’s underlying blockchain network and the nodes that keep it running.

On the Kriptomat platform, we have everything you need to stay updated on the latest market action and make informed trading decisions. Every coin’s price page has its live crypto chart. Our customisable charts include tools to help with your technical analysis.

We also have a wide range of indicators available which can assist you in making crypto price predictions.

On top of this, we have historical price data and detailed information explaining everything you need to know about the cryptocurrency’s price and the factors that influence it. Kriptomat allows you to set up an alert and receive a notification when the coin reaches a certain price.

That means you can increase your chances of finding great buying or selling opportunities.

Crypto prices FAQ

How do I buy cryptocurrencies, and how much do they cost?

Every cryptocurrency has a different price, ranging from a fraction of a cent to tens of thousands of dollars. You can find out the current cryptocurrency prices of all available coins and tokens on our pricing pages, while the purchasing instructions are on the how to buy cryptocurrency page. The cool thing about cryptocurrencies is that, unlike stocks, they are fractional. That means you don’t have to buy a whole number of coins. For example, many people cannot afford 1 Bitcoin, but if they want to invest in BTC, they can still buy 0.1 BTC, 0.0025 BTC, or any other fraction they like.

Which cryptocurrency is the cheapest to buy?

Many cryptocurrencies cost less than $1 or even less than $0.01 per coin. However, calling these cryptocurrencies “cheap” represents a flawed way of thinking. As explained above, you don’t have to buy many tokens.

Just because a cryptocurrency has a low price doesn’t mean it has more growth potential. Market cap is a better indicator of a project’s current value as it represents the total invested amount. A project with a strong team and innovative ideas but a small market cap may be undervalued or “cheap” regardless of the price per coin.

Is investing in cryptocurrencies considered to be a good investment decision?

Cryptocurrencies have turned plenty of people into millionaires in short time frames, and many believe that the value of virtual assets will continue to rise as Blockchain technology revolutionises a wide range of industries. However, cryptocurrencies are highly volatile, and it is possible to make huge losses and gains, making them a risky investment.

It’s a good idea not to invest anything in crypto that you can’t afford to lose, and you might want to consult a qualified financial advisor if you’re unsure about acquiring crypto assets.

Plenty of promising crypto projects have the potential to give great returns. It’s crucial to conduct research before any purchasing decision. Cryptocurrencies are not an exception. Some of the things to consider when evaluating the potential of a crypto project include the reputation of its team and investors, the quality of its whitepaper, whether the technology has a valuable use case, its roadmap, whether it is on schedule, the amount of developer activity and community engagement and the economics of its coin.

Kriptomat is a great place to look for a promising cryptocurrency and to do your research. You can use our live crypto charts and indicators to do technical analysis, and our extensive coin guides will tell you lots of valuable information about the project behind the cryptocurrency project.
