The general market sentiment around cryptocurrencies is far more positive now than it was the same time last year. A pullback was expected but very few in the industry predicted things would drop so low and virtually all gains would be wiped out. As markets appear to be coming off the bottom, crypto traders, analysts, holders and investors start looking towards the next big bull run and it could be a monster.
Back in early 2017 very few people knew what cryptocurrency was. A few had heard of Bitcoin but it was still something that computer geeks dabbled with their garages. Ethereum was trading at $15 and the rest of the altcoins were blips on the horizon. Total market capitalization back then was around $20 billion or around ten percent of what it is today.
