Bitcoin, Ether Doom or Gloom : Is Terra the Death of Digital Assets?

Bitcoin, Ether Doom or Gloom : Is Terra the Death of Digital Assets?

Tammy Da Costa, Analyst

Bitcoin, Ether and other major crypto’s currently remain in the headlines after a tumultuous week of whipsaw price action.

As an array of both fundamental and geopolitical factors continue to weigh on risk-sentiment, digital assets (which performed exceptionally well since the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic) have recently struggled to ascertain the optimistic rationale that previously allowed the market capitalization of the industry to temporarily rise beyond the $3 Trillion mark before retreating back below the$2 Trillion mark.
