The volatility of the cryptocurrency market is well known. However, this hasn’t stopped people, businesses, and investment firms from putting their money in crypto. With so much volatility, the top crypto movers for the week have seen some noteworthy gains.
Top Crypto Movers
It is very important to note there are currently over 19,000 cryptocurrencies populated on dozens of blockchain platforms. With that said, monitoring the biggest movers of all the cryptocurrencies will generate a list from the smallest of coins. And to be honest, there is no telling how long they will be around.
The top movers for the week on this list come from Coinbase. And just because they are on Coinbase doesn’t mean they will be around either. Remember, Terra was one of the top currencies trading at $116 just in April of 2022. It is now worth $0.000098.

Investing in Cryptocurrency
Moving from traditional investment avenues to cryptocurrency is a big jump. But it is not that different in that you have to do your due diligence before you put up your hard-earned money. Before you invest your money in anything make sure you are fully aware of the risks. Whether it is a cryptocurrency or a traditional investment avenue, information is your best friend.

Based on this information make the appropriate investment according to the risk. In that regard investing in cryptocurrency is no different than any other investment. However, cryptocurrencies are not regulated, and their value seems to go up or down without any rhyme or reason. Granted they may have some great underlying value, but that doesn’t seem to have any impact as the market is primarily driven by how Bitcoin and to some extent Ethereum are doing.
As with any type of investment, you must prepare yourself to lose what you put in when investing in cryptocurrencies.
