News Roundup: Wayyyyyyy Up

You know what time it is? Time for us to shout our favourite phrase ever: New All-Time High!!!

Yeah, last week was what we’ve come to expect from crypto. Breathtaking prices, people being creative, and what goes down coming back up. So without wasting any time, here’s how last week went. Enjoy!

Wayyyyyy Up!!

Bitcoin is back like it never left. Okay so maybe not completely back but definitely moving up fast. When it comes to Bitcoin, what goes down must come up, rings true. But the struggle has been real. After the rush of January, Bitcoin fell back to about $48,000 but is back up to $57,000 (28.2 million naira). Hopefully, it’s about to be a great week.

Ethereum isn’t playing with anyone. We caught that movement from 1.2 million to 1.7 million in the blink of an eye.

So grab an umbrella because it’s raining gains this week ☔️.

Yes, you guessed it, DJ Cuppy has come out with her own crypto called CuppyCoin. According to one of her recent tweets, she launched it on Bitclout, a coin listing platform and crypto social network. The coin is selling at a current price of $1,620 and Cuppy posted on Bitclout that its price will double. Awesome right?!


XRP had mega plans before it fell into this SEC issue but it seems like those plans are still on track.
