  • Toncoin’s market cap is over $25 billion, while Cardano has over $20 billion.
  • TON has more supply in profit compared to ADA.

It’s interesting to observe the ongoing competition between Toncoin and Cardano [ADA], especially with Toncoin recently overtaking Cardano in market capitalization ranking.

Beyond their positions in market cap, a deeper comparison between the two assets reveals some interesting activities.

Toncoin ninth, Cardano tenth

Data from CoinMarketCap (CMC) revealed that Toncoin currently holds the ninth position in terms of market capitalization, boasting over $25.6 billion.

Meanwhile, Cardano has slipped to the tenth spot with a market cap of $20.9 billion. What’s particularly noteworthy about this shift in market cap ranking is that Cardano, previously occupying the ninth position, was surpassed by Toncoin as the latter experienced a surge in price.

Due to the absence of notable price movement in ADA, the upward trajectory of TON caused Cardano to slide down in the rankings.

Furthermore, examining the volume metric demonstrates that TON has a higher trading volume than ADA. At the time of writing, TON’s volume was over 714.8 million, whereas ADA’s volume stood at around 433.4 million. Additionally, the chart indicates a declining trend in ADA’s volume.

TON, ADA profitability check

The fluctuating price trend of Cardano┬áhas evidently affected its supply in profit. Analysis of the supply in profit metric reveals that ADA’s supply in profit has dwindled to approximately 63%.

This decline occurred despite the recent uptrend observable on the chart, indicating that around 22.6 billion ADA are currently in profit.

On the other hand, examining TON, it becomes apparent that over 9.3 million of its supply is currently in profit. Surprisingly, 100% of TON’s supply remains in profit despite a decline that can be observed on the chart.

Indeed, Toncoin has been demonstrating improvements across several key metrics, not just limited to its price. However, Cardano (ADA) seems to lag in this regard.
