Key Facts that could give Crypto fundamental value:

✅ El Salvador made headlines by declaring bitcoin as legal tender alongside the U.S. dollar during the Bitcoin 2021 conference in Miami. While hailed by bitcoin enthusiasts, the move faced criticism from traditional institutions like the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and World Bank.

✅ The United States maintains its position as the world’s largest mining country, a title it’s unlikely to relinquish for many years. In 2021, China’s ban on bitcoin marked a significant event. After years of wavering policies, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) imposed a comprehensive ban on bitcoin services and businesses in May. This prompted a mass exodus of bitcoin miners from China to other regions, notably Central Asia and the United States, leading to a notable surge in the U.S. bitcoin mining industry.

✅ The U.S. Federal Reserve diverged from the European Central Bank (ECB) and other central banks by refraining from condemning stablecoins and rejecting central bank digital currencies (CBDCs).

✅ Following El Salvador’s lead, other countries may consider adopting bitcoin as legal tender. Speculation abounds regarding potential adopters, with countries like Ecuador and Panama, which, like El Salvador, use the USD extensively, being prime candidates.

✅ Non-fungible tokens (NFTs) continue to gain traction across various platforms such as Ethereum, Cardano, Polygon, Hive, and EOS. NFTs enable users to engage in activities like gaming, music consumption, and token collecting. The race for blockchain dominance in NFT adoption remains undecided.

✅ Cryptocurrency stands as the fastest-growing sector globally and shows no signs of slowing down in the foreseeable future.

✅ Cryptocurrency experienced a sell-off.

✅ The launch of a Bitcoin exchange-traded fund (ETF) occurred.

✅ The Bitcoin halving event is expected to bolster the coin’s long-term value.
