2 cryptocurrencies to reach $5 billion market cap in the second half of the year

2 cryptocurrencies to reach $5 billion market cap in the second half of the year

The expanding role of decentralized finance (DeFi), enhancements in blockchain scalability, and the increasing use of smart contracts are expected to fuel a significant altcoin rally. 

This surge could push several altcoins beyond the $5 billion market cap mark, marking a major milestone in their valuation and influence within the broader cryptocurrency landscape.

Finbold has identified two cryptocurrencies that are on track to achieve this milestone. Their growth potential hinges on the continuation of the bull market and factors like supply inflation. Notably, even if their prices remain stable, high supply inflation could elevate their market cap.

Aptos (APT)

Aptos (APT) is on the verge of reaching the $5 billion market cap milestone due to its remarkable performance and expanding ecosystem.

Recently, Aptos achieved a record daily transaction volume, outpacing networks like Solana (SOL) and Sui (SUI) with its impressive 32,000 transactions per second (TPS) capability. The surge in activity is largely attributed to the game “Tapos Cat,” which significantly boosted network usage.

In May, the 7-day moving average of user transactions on Aptos soared to 47 million, up from less than 1 million at the start of the month. This spike, driven by “Tapos Cat,” showcases Aptos’s potential to handle high transaction demand.

Despite the campaign’s end, Aptos’s integration with major partners like Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT), Google Cloud, and Universal Pictures demonstrates its growing influence. 

Additionally, Aptos has integrated Chainlink’s CCIP and Data Feeds to boost decentralized app development. Currently priced at $7.90  with a market cap of $3.56 billion, Aptos is well-positioned to surpass the $5 billion mark.

Render (RNDR)

Render (RNDR) is another cryptocurrency poised to break the $5 billion market cap barrier. It offers innovative blockchain-based rendering services for content creators and developers. 

Render has seen a steady upward trajectory, with a 23% increase in the past month and a 5% rise in the last week. The success of Nvidia (NASDAQ: NVDA) in the AI sector has bolstered confidence in AI tokens like RNDR, leading to substantial gains

Render continues to expand its ecosystem through strategic partnerships and integrations with major digital content platforms and decentralized applications (dApps).

Currently valued at $8. 02, Render has a market cap of $3.12  billion and strong potential to surpass its previous all-time high. Despite recent bearish trends, Render’s unique position in digital content creation and ongoing technological advancements could propel it to new heights.

The past week has witnessed significant downturns in the cryptocurrency market, with overall valuations sliding by 20% and Bitcoin (BTC) by 5%.

Despite this, Aptos and Render have shown resilience and potential for significant growth, capitalizing on the broader crypto market’s recovery despite mixed signals and prevailing bearish sentiment. 

Achieving a $5 billion market cap seems likely as these platforms continue to innovate and expand their use cases, provided the market maintains bullish momentum.
