Cryptocurrencies went through a major retreat since November 2021, which lasted more than a year until the end of 2022, but it seems like the crypto winter might be over. January was quite bullish for cryptocurrencies and despite the recent surge in the USD, cryptocurrencies continue to display bullish pressure, with losses being minimal since Friday and the bullish momentum already resuming.
Ethereum fell below $1,000 for a moment in June last year, but buyers have been holding that line well since then and the lows have been getting higher.
