ten best performing cryptocurrencies in 2022 (so far)

2021 was a big year for the cryptocurrency industry, but 2022 so far is nowhere near that. Many believe the hype that the crypto market got last year is a major reason for a drop this year so far. Several experts consider the market to be in a correction phase now. Moreover, the growing political uncertainty is another reason for a drop in cryptocurrencies.
