Tokenized Bitcoin is blasting, with the expanding request from DeFi joined with BTC's new fleeting value rise has brought about three Bitcoin tokenization conventions positioning among the 70 biggest crypto markets.

As indicated by mainstream market information aggregators CoinGecko and CoinMarketCap, Wrapped Bitcoin (WBTC) right now positions as the thirteenth biggest market bragging a capitalization $4.04 billion, with generally 0.6% of Bitcoin's stockpile as of now secured in the convention. Huobi BTC (HBTC) positions 56th with a market cap of $660 million, trailed by the 63rd-positioned (RENBTC) with a capitalization of $510 million.

Addressing Cointelegraph, CoinGecko COO and prime supporter Bobby Ong affirmed that "the tokenized BTC market capitalization [...] is remembered for the absolute digital money market capitalization count" gave by his organization. He added:


“We are aware of the double-counting issue and have an internal to-do to try to correct for this issue [...] This was a phenomenon that has become more prevalent in the past year as more and more tokenized assets are created on Ethereum. We hope to have a solution for this out soon.”


Bitcoin presently speaks to over 65% of the consolidated crypto capitalization.
