2020 – what were the most important cryptocurrency events?
2020 was a breakthrough for Bitcoin. Eventually, not only individual investors, but also institutional investors began to be interested in it. His market position has definitely soared. The same applies to the price, although at the beginning of the year nothing indicated such an increase. In January, Bitcoin was worth just over USD 10,000, then its price slowly increased, and in March there was a decline, after which the value was less than USD 5,000. Bitcoin, however, quickly began to rebound and in December 2020 it surprised investors, breaking the price of USD 20,000, and in the next month it was worth up to 30,000 more!
Ether also recorded an impressive growth on the cryptocurrency exchange – by over 850% throughout the year. It was related to the development of the Ethereum platform. Version 2.0 will allow for better network scaling and will enable faster and more efficient handling of even more transactions. Ultimately, Ethereum 2.0 is to process around 9,000 transactions per second.
ADA grew by over 500%, and XEM by exactly 307%. Unfortunately, 2020 was a tragic year for Ripple Labs, which is responsible for XRP. The company was sued by the American Securities and Exchange Commission, the cryptocurrency was withdrawn from the most popular exchanges, and its value fell to 20 cents.

The musician Akon’s project also echoed loudly. It has its own coin – Akoin. There would be nothing so strange about it, if it were not for the fact that in January 2020 the artist got permission to create a whole city based on Akoins. Akon City will be built in Senegal, near Dakar, and construction is expected to be completed by 2025 at the latest.
