This means WBTC is Ethereum’s sixth-largest token by market cap, after Crypto.com Coin (CRO), USD Coin (USDC), Chainlink (LINK), BNB (BNB), and Tether USD (USDT).
Last week WBTC got ahead of Compound Dai (cDAI), OKB (OKB) and Bitfinex’s LEO Token (LEO). If we talk about the whole crypto industry, WBTC ranks 18th.
The main reason for the rising market cap of WBTC is the instant growth of demand. However, the recent achievements of BTC also have their influence. WBTC is widely used in Yield farming.
