A Look at How Far Crypto Assets Have Slid From Their All-Time Highs – Markets and Prices Bitcoin News

Digital currencies had a phenomenal year, and a great deal of the crypto assets in existence reached all-time high (ATH) prices against the world’s fiat currencies. However, the same digital currencies that tapped ATHs last year are currently down a great deal in value, as numerous cryptocurrencies have lost 30% or more since 2021’s price highs.

Crypto Values Are Lower Than Last Year’s Price Highs

As many blockchain networks increased in value and billions of dollars were added to alternative digital economies, 2021 was an excellent year for crypto assets. Bitcoin (BTC), broke the previous ATH at the end 2020 when it surpassed its $20K per-unit zone.

BTC’s price continued to rise higher into 2021 and eventually, it tapped a high of $64K per unit. The bitcoin price soared to $69K on the 10th of November 2021. However, it is now 39% less.

Down From the Peaks: A Look at How Far Crypto Assets Have Slid From Their All-Time Highs

Today, a multitude of crypto assets, including BTC, are on the same page as BTC. While they have reached ATHs sometime last year, many others have seen their fiat values drop by at least 30%. Ethereum’s (ETH) value skyrocketed to an ATH sixty days ago touching $4,847 but has since lost 35.46%.

Binance coin (BNB) hit an ATH last year but it was eight months ago and today, it’s 34% down from the $689.92 per coin price it once held. SOL (solana) was at its peak of $258.93 two months ago. Today, SOL is 47% lower.

There are many ways to offset losses, including different percentages and time frames.
