2022 was an extremely bad year for the crypto market, but the first month of 2023 turned out very differently. January 2023 was not only the best January ever, it was also the best month since October 2021 for prices. The total market capitalization of crypto rose about 26% in the last 31 days from $800 billion to $1.008 trillion. Which cryptocurrencies performed the best last month? We list them for you.
Bitcoin up 39% in January 2023
Bitcoin (BTC) touched nearly $24,000 this week, but has since fallen back below $23,000. However, on January 1, the BTC price was only just above $16,000, which means that the price has risen by no less than 39% in January.
January has been the best monthly returns for #Bitcoin since the October 2021 ATH.
43.2% at the top of the range, and 37.7% right now.

Ethereum is up 32% in January
Ethereum (ETH) underperformed Bitcoin last month, which is exceptional. There is speculation the upcoming ‘Shanghai’ update, which will allow withdrawals, will make investors wary. Nevertheless, the ether price recently rose 32% from below $1,200 to $1,580.
Is anyone else as surprised by this chart as I am?

Solana is up 140% in January
Still, just outside the top 10, we have another harder climber: solana (SOL). The market feared a month ago that it might be over for this crypto when the price dropped below $10. However, SOL is now at $24, an increase of no less than 140%
Fact: The price of $SOL has increased by over 150% since the beginning of 2023.

Aptos takes 375%, hardest climber crypto top 100
We have even more hard risers in the top 100 and this was the absolute top: Fantom (FTM) is also up 140%. Frax share (FXS) even increased by 145%. Decentraland (MANA) is already 148% in the plus.
Threshold is currently rising sharply and will already reach 220% in January. Gala (GALA) is just above that at 221%, but aptos (APT) was January’s big winner in the top 100. The APT price has been falling since its peak of $19.9, but stands with a price of $16 .5 still 375% up on 1 January.
Aptos’ $APT token hit all-time highs above $19.

However, keep in mind that things can get very exciting this week in the financial markets. We have a large series of macroeconomic events that can have a major impact on the direction of prices.
