The cryptocurrency boom last year from 2021 until early 2022 caught everyone off guard. During that period, almost everybody has the idea that Bitcoin will reach $100K per coin. But it didn’t happen. Instead, the whole market plummets. At the time of writing, Bitcoin was priced $21,555.00, according to Coingecko data. However, if you look closely, that was all due to the macroeconomic conditions.
