Bit.com May Roundup — Hope in a sea of red
The month of May has been a rather nerve-wrecking period for the crypto community, as we witnessed the UST/LUNA fallout, which was followed by a majority of coins seeing red. All of the top 10 coins by market capitalization, except stablecoins, were down in May.
There are many indicators, though, to suggest that the market continues to be bearish. WoW dominance has risen, multiple fresh fundraising rounds with record valuations were disclosed, and a handful of high-profile firms increased their war chest. So yes, we believe that better days are coming.
Let’s have a look at what’s happened in the past month as we look forward to greater performance in the coming weeks.
