A community member compared crypto to a turkey that takes time to cook and expressed gratitude for the opportunity to invest in its technology.
As crypto community members celebrated Thanksgiving, many expressed gratitude for the progress made in the digital asset space over the years.
From comparing price points for Bitcoin (BTC) and Ether (ETH) in 2022 to sharing their Thanksgiving conversations about BTC, crypto users exchanged their musings on X (formerly Twitter) for the holiday.
Animoca Brands executive chairman Yat Siu reminded his followers that there is “much to be grateful for.” Siu posted ETH and BTC prices a year ago and compared them with current market prices. The executive also mentioned Web3’s total market capitalization, which has grown to $1.4 trillion.
1 year ago #ETH was 1,135 and #Bitcoin was 16,171 and today eth is 2,065 and BTC is 37,323 & the web3 token market cap has grown to 1.4 trillion. The Open Metaverse has proven to be remarkably resilient.
Happy Thanksgiving fam & frens, there is much to be grateful for.
