Bit.com June Roundup — Crypto is bouncing back
June has been a month of slow recovery from the crypto crash in May. As we continue seeing headlines about halts, cuts, and bailouts, most major altcoins are also trimming gains.
Every single coin (except stablecoins) in the top 10 by market capitalization saw double-digit percentage losses. The crypto market is not in the clear, but we’re positive that we will be seeing green soon.
Let’s catch up on what’s happened in June as we continue looking ahead towards brighter skies.
