    Crypto users break 100 million worldwide

    A sharp increase to 106 million from the 66 million found in a study last May by Crypto.com can be attributed to PayPal, DeFi, and institutional investors

    According to Crypto.com, this growth is largely driven by strong Bitcoin adoption which was a 15.7% increase. Other factors that seem to have driven the sharp upturn in adoption include the huge growth of decentralized finance (DeFi) since last summer, PayPal’s decision to enable customers to hold bitcoin, and the massive institutional adoption of cryptocurrencies by mainstream companies and highly regarded investors like Stanley Druckenmiller.

    Crypto’s top 10: Rankings shake-up looms as Ethereum killers make presence felt

    Binance Coin, Polkadot and Cardano are in the ascendancy. Should Ethereum, buckling under the strain of congestion, be worried?

    Back in December 2017, when BTC hit $20,000 for the first time, altcoins such as Bitcoin Cash, XRP and Litecoin were firm favorites in the top five. Tether and Binance Coin were nowhere to be seen among the 20 biggest coins. Some, like Polkadot, didn’t even exist. Fast forward to 2021, and the rundown of the 10 biggest cryptocurrencies by market cap looks very different indeed.

    Markets Report: New all-time highs keep coming for Bitcoin, Ether

    The past 24 hours brings records for the two largest cryptocurrencies, with charts providing little bearishness to spoil the mood

    Ether hit new all-time highs of $1,929 on February 18 as a brief lull in Bitcoin price action allowed for further upside. The latest push higher brings Ether closer than ever to the significant psychological barrier at $2,000, something which if broken could immediately spur a surge to $2,200.
