FLUX, SFP, Badger DAO Rise Even as Bitcoin Drops to $47,000


The year-long mantra that the cryptocurrency market was going to experience a peak exploding in December has proven worthless so far, and last week most cryptocurrencies were under selling pressure and Bitcoin (BTC) was struggling to trade above. $47,000.

However, it is not all bad news for cryptocurrency holders on December 10 as many altcoins have managed to post double-digit gains due to new exchange listings and protocol upgrades.
