Last Week in Crypto Market

After 2 years and 3 months of anticipation, the world’s largest cryptocurrency, Bitcoin, has officially set a new ATH milestone at $69,990, reaching the $70,000 mark.

With an increase from $63,500 to the current peak of $69,990, Bitcoin saw a rise of over 10% last week. Despite such a significant surge, numerous large funds worldwide continued to buy Bitcoin, promising another week filled with market optimism.


The sharp increase in Bitcoin also lifted the entire crypto market. Particularly, the second-largest coin, Ethereum, saw substantial gains as well. Alongside the Bitcoin effect, on March 13, the significant event Dencun for Ethereum is set to take place. Surpassing the $4,000 mark this week seems entirely feasible for ETH.


In addition to Bitcoin, Ethereum, last week also witnessed the dominance of meme coins such as PEPE, FLOKI, DOGE COIN, and SHIBA.

Towards the end of the week, money flow was also shifting towards tokens in the GameFi and AI sectors such as GALA, PIXEL, FET, and RNDR.
