As a result, the total capitalization of the market of digital financial assets turned out to be higher than the level of $ 220 billion, with 58.3% of this amount being Bitcoin. The fact that in just two days the market has grown by 10% suggests the start of a new cryptocurrency boom. Increased demand provokes purchases at levels that most recently seemed unattainable.
