May had its good moments, however most of cryptocurrencies noticed more than 10% loss. The beginning of June does not bode well for the next ranking.

For now April was the best month in 2018.

  • Bytecoin –  after big price and trust drop of Verge, another “untraceable” private-based crypto has taken its place. With almost 30% up, Bytecoin ends May as a winner.
  • Golem – blockchain-based supercomputer is on the 2nd place, 2nd time in the row. Golem price this month goes only 8% up, however, looking at the other cryptos in the ranking, it is still good.
  • IOTA – based on the distributed ledger technology, the Tangle is, as they say “the missing link for the Internet of Everything and Web 3.0.”
  • Ethereum – the crypto which most good projects are based on, noticed a loss in May, -12% gave ETH 4th position.
  • Zcash–  our 5th place, another crypto which secures information about your transaction, as they say “first fully secure crypto, that is using zero-knowledge cryptography”
  • Bitcoin– from $9080 to $7601, at the beginning crypto had its ups and downs, but last months mostly gave us downs, however, we hope that after lightning network implementation, it will only have ups!
  • Litecoin– younger, “silver” Bitcoin brother, noticed more than $20 loss, Charles Lee keeps building trust, however, when BTC goes down, everything goes down.
  • Bitcoin Cash– last month more than 100% gain, this time noticed 23% loss. Still, when you look at the price from March and now, it is not that bad.
  • Ripple– even Snoop Dogg couldn’t help Ripple. This cryptocurrency has ended May with almost 26% price drop.
  • Ethereum Classic– is a continuation of the original Ethereum blockchain, even after months, traders believe in the ETC. Classic is closing our ranking with more than 27% drop.


After the Red March, and the Green April, it is May. Last time, we hoped that May will be as good as April, but it can’t be 100% gain every month. We still have our fingers crossed for every crypto, and “to the moon!”

We hope that the June ranking will be better!
