The cryptocurrency market has been going through tough times for more than two months. Bitcoin and Ethereum are struggling to keep the market alive, but the drop isn’t just about crypto. Tech stocks on the Nasdaq entering the “correction zone” point to macro indicators and several rate hikes are expected in 2022. Price moves aside, in this article, let’s take a look at which altcoin projects whales are buying at bottom prices.

Meanwhile, Cardano and Binance Coin (BNB) investors are showing signs of FUD.
