The upward and downward movements of the digital market and crypto trading cause a stir among its investors and users. The year 2021 was a significant year for digital currency investments, giving a considerable boost to Bitcoin and its closest rival, Ethereum.
Digital Currencies Fall to Their Lowest Levels. For January of 2022, the crypto market has registered millionaire losses approaching 130,000 million dollars; consequently, the price of digital currencies has plummeted.
This situation has generated great anxiety and uncertainty among its beneficiaries, which is why many consider it the ideal time to acquire more cryptocurrencies. At the same time, some are more conservative and even prefer to sell for fear of losing more enormous amounts of money.
The values registered for Monday, January 24, reached a decrease of almost 4% of its price to date, which represents a value of 33,800 USD in terms of the cryptocurrency market leader Bitcoin. On the other hand, the second cryptocurrency, Ether, had a fall that reached a margin of 7%, leaving it at an estimated price of USD 2,240.
Both cryptocurrencies for 2021 showed great strength in the face of negative comments that caused their value to decline; they never reached this low value; they almost reached 50% of their all-time highs.
Investment experts indicate that not only have cryptocurrencies seen falls in value, but also stocks have suffered severe blows in terms of their prices, which suggest that the digital market is being affected by the Fed’s strict monetary policies from the United States.
Cryptocurrency All-time Highs. Investments in crypto assets and digital currencies in 2021 set a new record in terms of digital exchange and investment operations.
Users and investors found in digital currencies a new refuge that would allow them to increase the value of their savings without them suffering losses due to the economic measures of the global financial environment.
For the second and third quarters of the year 2021, cryptocurrencies had sudden movements that allowed, in some cases, to surprise many with the unexpected prices they reached.
Not only has Bitcoin reached its maximum value, but also Ether triggered its price, generating millionaire profits for its users, where the values of these cryptocurrencies reached USD 66,000 in the case of Bitcoin and almost 4,500 dollars for Ether.
Although Bitcoin, after its maximum, decreased in value, it remained in the highest valuation range that a cryptocurrency has had, which makes it maintain its leadership as a digital currency.
Although the financial expectations of both digital currencies have varied considerably, it is crucial to consider the upward stability that Ether has. However, its value is lower than bitcoin, aiming to maintain and take small but stable steps.
Cryptocurrencies and Stocks. One of the most controversial issues is the return on investment in cryptocurrencies or, preferably in shares. Although they are two different investment sources, both cryptocurrencies and shares can obtain value on the stock market.
Whether digital or traditional (Forex), everything in the financial market is valued based on the price at which the assets or cryptocurrencies are listed. If their price rises, it indicates greater demand, which benefits the parties involved.
Their nature is entirely different; their market distinguishes them; even the risks are different, cryptocurrencies are highly volatile, and they can manage stocks with less susceptible stability.
The actions are backed by a particular company, while the cryptocurrencies only support their users’ superior support when investing in them.
Conclusion. The digital market has become a new investment strategy for many; accessibility to cryptocurrencies has allowed more and more capital to be invested in this financial market.
It is essential to recognize that investing in stocks or cryptocurrencies represents a form of gambling, where users compete to increase or decrease these assets, which will generate an eventual income.
The risks are always present, only that cryptocurrencies have made it possible to make way for a market that has never been exploited. Moreover, it has aroused the necessary interest for investments to turn intangible into tangible assets.
More and more options are created to use and manage cryptocurrencies as a digital currency for exchange and payment, which indicates that even with their volatility, the number of people who want to invest in them is increasing.
