What affects cryptocurrency prices?

There are a lot of determinants of cryptocurrency value. The most important of them are supply and demand, scarcity, coin’s utility, project’s reputation and community support, rules and regulations.

Supply and demand

Basic economic principles apply to cryptocurrencies. If a coin has a huge supply or it's unlimited, but the demand for the coin is small, then the price of the coin may be low or even fall. At the same time, if the coin has a limited supply and the demand is high or keeps increasing, then the coin price may be high or even rise.


Scarcity element is linked to the supply and demand ratio. Cryptocurrencies that have a limited supply, such as Bitcoin, are deflationary in nature. This means that over time they will become less and less frequent, which means that their price has the potential to rise with the corresponding demand.

Coin's utility

Most cryptocurrencies are used for crypto network maintenance, operation, or performing certain tasks, such as governance and voting. The value of the coin, and hence the price, can also be formed depending on how important the cryptocurrency is for the network operation and its use by the network participants.

Project's reputation and community support

Public sentiment has a big influence on crypto prices and rankings. If cryptocurrency is community-driven, has an active use, and adoption in various fields, it can get both price support and demand for the coin. However, if a cryptocurrency network is experiencing a split in the community or its reputation has been damaged by certain events, then this can cause the price of the cryptocurrency to go down.

Rules and regulations

Attitude towards cryptocurrencies differs depending on the country, and in some cases they are not positive. If the regulator's position regarding all the cryptocurrency market or particular coin changes, it may affect the price and adoption level.

Why do cryptocurrency prices change?

A lot of users try to find out why are cryptocurrency prices falling or rising at a particular moment but the main reason is that most determinants are not static and are constantly changing. The supply and demand ratio always varies. Some market participants — buyers and sellers — may temporarily dominate the market or take over the initiative. Regulators' or public's attitudes towards the market or a particular cryptocurrency may change. Depending on the narrative that prevails in the market, the crypto prices can go up and down.

In addition to the direct impact on the price, there may also be indirect ones. For example, price changes in one cryptocurrency can affect the value of another coin.

Can I buy/sell crypto on the platform for another price?

The price you see on the Prices page or Trade page is a current market price on CEX.IO. But it doesn’t mean that you can buy/sell crypto only for the market price by placing a market order or using Instant Buy service. There is also a limit order that is available on CEX.IO Exchange.

With the limit order, you can set the price you want to buy or sell with and it can be higher or lower than the market one. A limit order can be placed in a wide range from the market price. But unlike market order, the limit order execution is not instant. You should wait until the price reaches the specified level or there is an opposite order in the order book for the same price.

Limit order can be partially executed if there is currently not sufficient volume at a matching price to cover the entire order. The order remainder will be open until filled by another order. it is possible to cancel a limit order before its full execution, order remainder can be canceled as well.

What is the market cap and how is it calculated?

Market capitalization is the way to indicate cryptocurrency value and rank the relative size of a cryptocurrency. Market capitalization can be also used as an indicator of cryptocurrency popularity and dominance on the market. Cryptocurrencies with the largest capitalization are considered major ones.

Market capitalization is determined by the current market price and circulating supply of coins.

Why prices for the same cryptocurrency can be different?

The cryptocurrency prices can be set in different fiat currencies and other cryptocurrencies. But even comparing the price, for example in USD, it may differ in different countries or cryptocurrency exchanges. The reason is that there is no standard pricing for cryptocurrencies. Cryptocurrencies are decentralized and they are not pegged to other assets, excluding stablecoins.

Given that there is no global standard for the crypto price, there are few options for how prices are calculated. Some trackers use an average estimated price for a particular cryptocurrency. On crypto exchanges like CEX.IO, the price is determined based on a recently-traded price on a particular market. There are also services that are streaming cryptocurrency prices from different cryptocurrency exchanges and use the volume-weighted average of all the available prices at the moment.
