Of the approximately 650 crypto-currencies available worldwide, Bitcoin remains by far the largest. In January 2017, Bitcoin had a market capitalization of roughly 12.6 billion euros, about 15 times as much as its most valuable competitor Ethereum and nearly 55 times more than Ripple, which completes the top 3. Even combined, the market caps of currencies two to ten are worth only a fraction of Bitcoin's value, suggesting that Bitcoin's lead will continue in the foreseeable future.
This graphic shows the market caps of the ten largest crypto-currency markets (in million euros).
