Currently, Polkadot (DOT) is the 12th largest cryptocurrency with a market cap of $17.5 billion and trading at $17.68, with a relatively 4% price upsurge in the last 24 hours, according to CoinMarketCap.

It’s worth noting that the cryptocurrency has lost over 50% of its all-time high price of $54.5, which was attained in November 2021.

The analysis did not include Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH), as Messari assumes most VCs and hedge funds hold a huge amount of the two largest digital currencies.
