Today, we cover the chapter 2, Token Projects on Coin Market, of EMURGO Africa 2023 Q1 Report.
Hope you enjoy reading the articles!!
Regarding the relative current or highest price to start price and the speed of price rise, Bitcoin ($BTC), Shiba Inu ($SHIB), and Binance Coin ($BNB) show one of the highest relative prices and the fastest price growths.
Regarding token rankings, by accounting for when it showed the highest ranking and lowest ranking, and also the number of years raking up and down, Ethereum ($ETH), Quant ($QNT), and Tether ($USDT) show the consistent growth of the token rankings.
Note that the results in this report are all pure quantitative results by author's own research and have nothing to do with an investment advice. All data used in this report are available in this spreadsheet. You are free to refer the data set.

1. Basics of Coin Market Data
The following coin market metrics offer insights into the scarcity, distribution, and liquidity of a digital asset.
(1). Token Supply Metrics
Max supply is the number of tokens that will ever be created on the certain blockchain. Total supply is defined as the following formula:
Total supply = Circulating supply + Locked supply + Burned supply
where circulating supply is the number of tokens presently available for trading; locked supply represents the number of tokens not accessible for trading; burned supply shows the number of tokens permanently removed from circulation.
(2). Price & Volume Metrics
Price change (24h) shows the percentage change in market price over the past 24 hours, providing a snapshot of a token's short-term performance.
Trading volume (24h) represents the total value of a digital asset traded on all exchanges within the past 24 hours, indicating liquidity, market interest, and the overall health of a token.
(3). Market Valuation Metrics
Market capitalization is defined as the following formula:
Market cap = Circulating supply × Current market price
Fully-diluted market capitalization is an estimate of a digital asset's total market value if its max supply were in circulation. It is defined as:
FDMC = Max supply × Current market price
Exchange listings determine a token's liquidity, as they provide platforms for trading and access to a diverse pool of buyers and sellers.
2. Token Type and Market Cap
Figure 1 below shows the type of tokens of the top 100 tokens by coin market capitalization (as of April 8, 2023). Among top 100 tokens, 46 represent layer 1 blockchains, 11 are stablecoins, 10 represents decentralized exchange protocols, 7 layer 2 blockchain, 5 centralized exchange protocols.

3. Price Change over Time
Table 1 below shows the token price related rank among top 100 tokens by coin market capitalization (as of April 8, 2023). Regarding the relative current or highest price to start price and the speed of price rise, Bitcoin ($BTC), Shiba Inu ($SHIB), and Binance Coin ($BNB) show one of the highest relative prices and the fastest price growths. Note that this is a pure quantitative result and nothing related to investment advice.

4. Token Ranking over Time
Table 2 below presents the ranking based on the ranking history among top 100 tokens by coin market capitalization (as of April 8, 2023). Regarding token rankings, by accounting for when it showed the highest ranking and lowest ranking, and also the number of years raking up and down, Ethereum ($ETH), Quant ($QNT), and Tether ($USDT) show the consistent growth of the token rankings. Note that this is a pure quantitative result and nothing related to investment advice.
