Brothers in bear market: What do Nano, Digibyte (DGB) and Bytecoin (BCN) have in common?

If we look at them from tech viewpoint – these three are completely different. From use case stance, Nano and DGB are both aiming to be payment coins, BCN to a lesser degree as well (primary focus is privacy protection).

But what makes these three projects proudly joined in our title is their miserable daily trading volume in the last 24 hours.

Trading volume totalled to only around $3 million according to Messari, for all three coins combined! All three of them, just to remind, are among top 50 cryptocurrencies by market cap.

Especially laughable was Bytecoin’s $150k of volume – a privacy focused project with slim chances of survival, disintegrating team and non-existent community is still sitting at $139 million of market cap. Of course, that is a nominal value and only small percentage of that could actually be realized which only exposes the whole market cap metric flaws.

The other two projects, that are known for their ardent supporters who are touting Nano and DGB to be far superior to bitcoin, amounted $2.7 and $1 million of daily volume respectively.

There is clearly a glaring lack of interest in these projects which is a worrisome thought for any holder. We are aware that bear market is a default state for crypto for more than a year, however, many smaller projects still attract at least 7 digits volumes on daily basis. For comparison, ICX is ranking below Nano but had $18 million of trading volume in the last 24 hours.
