The 13th biggest asset in the world

Bitcoin is currently the 13th biggest asset in the world by market capitalization. That’s before most institutions have really gotten involved. No wonder they are eager to get in.

At River, we believe that Bitcoin will be number one on this list one day.

If you’re wondering who is in the top 10, check out the full overview on companiesmarketcap.com.

Volatility is your friend

Big swings in the Bitcoin price happen all the time to the upside and to the downside. As the market looks to price Bitcoin, and based on where we are in the current life cycle of the asset, volatility is just part of it.

There’s been 40 full weeks in 2023 so far, and guess how many times Bitcoin moved more than 2% in any given week? 

20! Yes, half.

Do you have a plan for catching those corrections? We just launched Target Price Orders, which allows you to set your target price to buy or sell Bitcoin. Catch those slight dips without price watching to invest with efficiency.
