Ano ang Market Cap?

The Beginner’s Guide


In finance, market capitalization (or “market cap”) is a metric used to measure the size of an asset, company or cryptocurrency relative to the market as a whole.

Anyone can calculate market cap using the market capitalization formula:

Market Cap = Amount of Shares * Share Price

Translating the formula to calculate crypto market cap, the share price is the price of a single unit of the cryptocurrency at any given time, and the amount is its circulating supply.

For example, if we take a snapshot of Bitcoin’s market cap on December 15, 2020 (the date it breached its all-time high), the price of a single bitcoin reached $21,569 with a circulating supply of 18.57 million BTC, helping its market cap reach a little over $400 billion. 

Of note, changes in the price of a cryptocurrency (or stock), as well as the issuance or burning of its tokens, can significantly alter its market cap.

How to Use Market Cap


Pinapayagan ng market capitalization ang mga investor na mabilis na ma-access ang halaga ng cryptocurrency sa pamamagitan ng paghahambing ng kabuuang halaga sa ibang mga cryptocurrency, kaya natutulungan sila na gumawa ng mas madaming informed na desisyon. 

Sa karagdagan, ang itong calculation na ito ay makakatulong din sa pag-evaluate ng risk na nauugnay sa pag-invest sa tiyak na mga cryptocurrency, bilang mas maliit na market cap katumbas ng mas mataas na mga investment risk.

Sa ganitong paraan, ang ibang investor ay ihinihiwalay ang mga kumpanya at cryptocurrency sa iba't ibang kategorya batay sa kanilang kaugnay na mga market cap.nbsp;

  • Large-cap – Ang mga pangunahing manlalaro sa kanilang industriya, ay nasusukat sa market cap ng higit $10 bilyon. Sa cryptocurrency, ang Bitcoin at Ethereum ay kasama sa saklaw na ito.
  • Mid-cap – Ang mga kumpanya at cryptocurrency na may market cap sa pagitan ng $2 and $10 bilyon. Ang mga mid-cap cryptocurrency na kabilang ay Litecoin, Chainlink, at Polkadot.
  • Small-cap – Kahit anong kumpanya, o cryptocurrency, na may market cap na mababa pa sa $2 bilyon, at itinuturing na mas mataas na risk na mga investment. Ang mga small cap cryptocurrency na kabilang ay Filecoin, Cosmos, at Uniswap

Panghuli, ang mga cryptocurrency investor ay madalas gumagamit ng total crytpo market cap upang makakuha ng malawak na view sa pagganap ng crypto asset na industriya, dahil ito ay pinagsama-samang sukatan ng market cap ng lahat ng mga cryptocurrency.
