The total market capitalization for the cryptocurrency market has exceeded $300 billion for the first time.
Data from CoinMarketCap.com shows that the market capitalization for all cryptocurrencies is currently at roughly $300.5bn. Of that amount, bitcoin's market cap represents the lion's share, accounting for about $158 billion.
The move comes as the price of bitcoin continues its surge above $9,000, trading at roughly $9,482, according to the CoinDesk Bitcoin Price Index (BPI).
The push above $300 billion perhaps also showcases the pace at which the market has grown in recent weeks. On Nov. 3rd, the overall market capitalization rose above $200 billion for the first time. By contrast, the market crossed the $100 billion level back in June.
