The cryptocurrency market has favoured Bitcoin and many altcoins this month, drastically increasing in value over this period. Bulls have been dominating the market by kicking bears out of the way, with only 6 digital currencies out of top 100 trading down.

May has become the most lucrative month of 2019 for all digital currencies, we have seen altcoins gaining more than 100% profit and Bitcoin SV surging over 300%. The total market capitalization added another $100 billion, reaching the point of $270,979 billion, according to coinmarketcap.

Top 6 Losers of May   

Factom (FCT), Augur (REP), Basic Attention Token (BAT), OKB (OKB), Populous (PPT), and True USD (TUSD) turned out to be the 6 cryptocurrencies that ended the month with losses, as per coincodex.com.   

   

Factom has a market cap of $76,90 mln and its daily trading volume reached $336,560.
