October Proved to Be a Bumper Month for Crypto


New York, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/29/2021 -- October was a pretty impressive month for cryptocurrencies - the most well-known of all, Bitcoin, enjoyed a 40% spike and many others also pushed up to reach an all-time high. The Shiba Inu coin, for example, gained more than 800% during the month. Shiba Inu coin was created as a spin-off from the Dogecoin but overtook the original by a long way thanks to October's incredible activity. There's no doubt that Bitcoin changed the financial world forever when it was invented in 2009 and it now has the potential to dominate the balance sheets of corporate America too. However, it - and Shiba Inu coin - aren't the only attractive digital currency investments right now. Ethereum is also considered a blue-chip cryptocurrency like Bitcoin and accounts for around 43% of the entire asset class. Solana has also had a great year in 2021 when it broke into the league of the top 10 cryptocurrencies in the world.
