Hello and welcome to another crypto news round-up by Coinigy.
February is here. And two things consistently happen this month…
a) 84% of men dash to the nearest grocery store for last-minute Valentine's Day flowers (guilty as charged).
b) BTC and ETH usually see green monthly returns. In fact…
- BTC has only had 2 red February’s in its history.
- ETH has only had 1 red February in its history.
The only other month that consistently sees as much green is October (dubbed “Uptober”). Take a look at the Coinigy Returns Radar to view the monthly and quarterly performance of crypto assets.
So the million-dollar question is: will February 2024 be a green month?
We can’t predict the future, so let’s stick to the news 😂
