The Time is Now to Make Millions in Crypto:
Back in September of 2022, I wrote an article titled "Bitcoin price prediction 2022"
In this article, I mentioned the lowest price for Bitcoin during the year will be at the end of the year (December) and priced between $10k-$20k...
As it so happened, the lowest price for Bitcoin during the year was $15,599.05 in mid-December 2022.
How Did I Know?
I looked at a pattern that has repeated itself time and time again since the beginning of Bitcoin. And although there is still a chance the price of Bitcoin could temporarily dip again, the market is now shifting into what investors call the accumulation phase of the market.
It's during this time (over the next 6-12 months) you should be accumulating crypto assets.

Top 100 Gainers - Last 7 Days
Over the last 7 days, the biggest gainers (within the top 100):
Render Token (RNDR) +77.5% - Ranked #93
RenderToken (RNDR) is a distributed GPU rendering network built on top of the Ethereum blockchain, aiming to connect artists and studios in need of GPU computing power with mining partners willing to rent their GPU capabilities out.
Immutable X (IMX) +37.5% - Ranked #62
Immutable X is the first layer-two scaling solution for NFTs on Ethereum. According to Immutable X, its blockchain does away with Ethereum’s limitations like low scalability, poor user experience, illiquidity, and a slow developer experience.
Instead, users benefit from instant trading and massive scalability while enjoying zero gas fees for minting and trading NFTs without compromising a user or asset security. To achieve that, Immutable X is built with STARK zk-rollups, a technology that Vitalik Buterin considers Ethereum to be “all-in on.”
GMX (GMX) +33.8% - Ranked #39
GMX is a decentralized spot and perpetual exchange that supports low swap fees and zero price impact trades. Trading is supported by a unique multi-asset pool that earns liquidity providers fees from market making, swap fees, leverage trading (spreads, funding fees & liquidations) and asset rebalancing.
Fantom (FTM) +33.8% - Ranked #62
Fantom is a Layer-1 blockchain that uses a scratch-built consensus mechanism and independent consensus layer, Lachesis, to facilitate DeFi and related services on the basis of smart contracts. Lachesis provides security for other layers as well, including Opera, Fantom's EVM-compatible smart contract chain.
Do You Own a Hardware Wallet?
If you own crypto, you need a hardware wallet. Period. Hardware wallets (also known as cold storage devices) are the best physical devices to keep your crypto investments safe and under your personal custody.
Ledger supports more cryptocurrencies than any other wallet on the market. This means if you have a portfolio with a bunch of exotic altcoins (especially small-caps), then Ledger is the best wallet to keep your portfolio secure. Store 1,000+ different cryptos in a ledger hardware wallet.

Big Data Protocol (BDP)
This micro-cap gem has tremendous potential.
Just launched (February 3rd), Big data protocol is a (DeFi) protocol to source commercially valuable data from professional data providers, tokenize it, and make it liquid. This is currently an untapped market and combined with AI technology, tokenizing data and then allowing it to be sold on the blockchain is an entirely new concept with massive commercial market potential.
BDP is currently trading at $0.2266 with a market cap of just over $10 million and a max supply of 80M tokens (circulating supply 49M).
