Ethereum Overtakes Litecoin For #3 in Market Cap

Summary: As of January 23rd, 2016 Ethereum, the cryptocurrency with a Turing-complete programming language built in, has surpassed Litecoin’s marketcap to take the #3 spot in cryptocurrencies with a market cap of almost $200 million. Ripple has held the #2 spot for some time now with a market cap of $236 million, and Bitcoin is in the #1 spot by leaps and bounds with a market cap of almost $6 billion.

This is a notable milestone for Ethereum because Litecoin has been the defacto “full blockchain” cryptocurrency (Ripple is slightly different than other cryptocurrencies) since at least 2013.
