The Flippening is the point in time when Bitcoin (BTC) loses its throne atop the cryptocurrency mountain of market capitalization and hands the reins to Ethereum (ETH).

Nobody knows when this will happen or if it will ever happen.

Currently, in 2022, but also since the beginning of all things crypto, Bitcoin has been the most valuable cryptocurrency measured by market cap, followed by Ethereum in second.

However, while Bitcoin (BTC) has been the leader by market capitalization, many market participants believe it’s only a matter of time before Bitcoin loses its lead to Ethereum.

There’s great speculation that Ethereum’s flexibility and utilization of smart contracts will push it over the top of Bitcoin in the dominance ranking.

As of August 2022, Ethereum (ETH) has a market share of 18.94% while Bitcoin (BTC)  has a market share of 40.34% when looking at the market capitalizations of all cryptocurrency assets in the crypto market.
