The long-held belief that the crypto market would experience a collapse in December has been proven false. For the past week, many cryptocurrencies have been selling under pressure. Bitcoin (BTC), however, is having difficulty trading above $47,000.

Despite this, cryptocurrency investors are not in bad shape as several altcoins have seen double-digit gains thanks to protocol upgrades and new exchange listings.
