1. Bitcoin Recovers Back To Over $20,000, Ethereum Bounces Back Above $1,000
By Sunday, both Bitcoin and Ethereum have undergone an approximate 35% loss in 7 days. But within Sunday, both coins have managed to bounce back above the $20,000 and $1,000 marks, respectively. While it is not too hopeful of a scenario, as there is still no sign that this drop has come to a halt, but at least the price recoveries are preventing serious consequences from happening.
Bitcoin and Ehtereum both have a huge number of investors. If the prices fail to maintain sufficient collateral, or financial security, large-scale investors would have to give up on these cryptocurrencies, causing them to fall even lower.

In the middle of the crisis caused by the fall of Bitcoin, President Nayib Bukele has spoken up about his opinion addressing the matter. Nayib Bukele was the person that directly facilitated the legalization of Bitcoin in El Salvador, and now with the major downfall of the cryptocurrency, he has told investors to be less anxious and give it time to grow again.
On his recent tweet, President Bukele said “My advice: stop looking at the graph and enjoy life. If you invested in BTC your investment is safe and its value will immensely grow after the bear market.” It would appear that his president has a lot of faith in Bitcoin and hopes his people will hold on to it as well.

5. Elon Musk Is Now Even More Supportive of Dogecoin
The $258B lawsuit doesn’t seem to get to the head of the world’s richest man, as he continues to advocate for Dogecoin, a coin whose price has fluctuated violently in the past year as a result of Musk’s controversial tweets. Elon Musk simply does not care once he gets on Twitter, as his tweets never failed to make people question his thoughts.
Just recently, Musk again went on Twitter to post one concise statement “I will keep supporting Dogecoin”. No one ever knows what he has in mind, since Dogecoin has lost pretty much all the hype it gained, but now Musk is pumping it up again by openly sharing that it would be accepted as a payment by Tesla and SpaceX.
