The Flippening is a term used in the cryptocurrency community to describe the hypothetical future event when a cryptocurrency, most commonly Ethereum, surpasses Bitcoin in market capitalization, thereby becoming the most valuable cryptocurrency.


"Many Ethereum supporters believe that the Flippening is inevitable, given Ethereum's wide range of use cases beyond just being a store of value."

2. context

The term is often used in the context of discussions about the future of cryptocurrencies and the potential for a shift in the balance of power from Bitcoin to other cryptocurrencies.


"The Flippening is a topic of heated debate in the crypto community, with some believing it's only a matter of time before Ethereum surpasses Bitcoin."

3. metrics

While market capitalization is the most commonly discussed metric in the context of the Flippening, other metrics such as transaction volume, hash rate, and number of nodes can also be considered.
