He pointed out that the reasons for the market recovery revolve around low interest rates around the world, as well as the huge financial stimulus efforts that provided checks to many people during the “Corona” pandemic, pointing out that some of these funds went towards cryptocurrencies and digital assets.

He added: “15% of Americans who received their first stimulus checks invested part or all of the money in cryptocurrency.

Digital exchanges Kraken and Voyager also advanced.

Crypto.com is among the most downloaded applications.

Not surprisingly, many are drawn to the cryptocurrency space.

Since last July, AUMs for digital asset investment products have increased by more than 57%, to nearly $55 billion.

Meanwhile, US stock markets set daily records.
