This would put the coin ahead of ADA, which had a market capitalization of $ 77.7 billion at the time of publishing this article, and would make it the third-largest cryptocurrency by that metric.
It should be noted that other data providers such as Messari Crypto and Coingecko do not provide a market capitalization metric for HEX as of press time, nor do they include it in their lists of top cryptocurrencies.
On Wednesday night, HEX was considered the fourth largest cryptocurrency by market capitalization on CoinMarketCap.

If the CMC data turns out to be accurate, right now HEX is a bigger coin than ADA and SOL, which has been unstoppable of late (up 427.58% over the course of 30 days and 82.01% in a week).
According to CMC data, HEX has also surpassed DOGE’s market capitalization, which has soared 4,365.1% year-to-date to rank # 8 on the cryptocurrency price tracking website’s list. .
This is a major promotion for a project whose disclaimer page reads : “HEX is not a security. In reality, there are no currencies, they are just numbers in a distributed database. In reality, nobody receives anything ”.
The disclaimer concludes with a most somber and direct warning: “You will observe that all the previous text goes on to say that you must have absolutely no expectations of any kind with respect to anything, and if something goes wrong, you should not seek compensation. anywhere, nor should you receive any ”.
An information of Cointelegraph dating from May 2020 stated that “true believers” in HEX claimed in social networks that whales had bet a lot and, since the project’s reward was not a scam.
On the other hand, the cryptocurrency media mocked HEX, founded by Richard-Heart , and claimed it was worthless and an outright scam, Cointelegraph noted at the time.
Critics reportedly include podcast host PeterMcCormack and Bitcoin Magazine writer Vlad Costea .
