Bloomberg notes that the cryptocurrency market has roughly quadrupled from its value at the end of 2020. Investors have become more comfortable working with traditional tokens and blockchain platforms such as Ethereum and Solana, while new meme currencies – meme coins – such as Dogecoin and Shiba Inu continue to attract attention, the agency explains.

At the same time, the publication reminds us that tokens and the crypto market, in general, remain extremely volatile. When Bitcoin last approached the $67,000 level, the record was quickly followed by an instant drop of several thousand dollars, halving its value.

Other coins are even more volatile – meme tokens sometimes fluctuate in the range of tens and hundreds of percent.

Meanwhile, it became known that a third of all bitcoins are in the hands of 10,000 investors.
