Week in Review: January 18 – 24

One week in crypto feels like a year.”

Welcome to the Weekly Roundup!

A snapshot into the last 168 hours in the world of cryptocurrency and Invest In Blockchain!

After last week’s Black Tuesday event, the cryptocurrency market seems to be recovering and we are seeing bullish sentiment picking up in the community. A week ago today, the market dipped below $450 billion in overall market cap from $800 billion not too long ago.

However, the current market conditions are improving and we are now sitting at a $549 billion overall market cap and moving up. Our 2018 expectations are still bullish, just the normal January Slump in play.

At Invest In Blockchain, it has been another fantastic week! The IIB Community voted on the coin for Giveaway #9 and ICON beat up Ethereum by 2%. You can now take your chance at winning $100 worth of ICX!

High Risk High Reward. Low cap coins are known as the “hidden gems” in cryptocurrency. While these projects have very high upside due to their low market cap, they also come with a ton of risk because the projects are usually not as established as high cap coins.
