Analysis

The Monero price has been in decline for several months. Consequently, Monero has dropped to 12th among cryptocurrency in terms of total market cap with a total valuation of ~$2.7 million. But the coin could be poised for a slight rebound. CoinGecko–a service that measures overall coin health according to a comprehensive rating algorithm–ranks Monero 9th with an overall rating of 54%. The disparity between Monero’s market cap and CoinGecko rankings indicates the Monero price is under-performing. Speculative investors should give Monero a look. Nevertheless, investors should remember that altcoin investments are incredibly risky. Pursue them with caution.
