... (for cryptos) was a year of firsts. The U.S. Congress entertained the idea of a digital dollar for the first time. Ethereum will become the largest blockchain to completely reinvent itself. Bitcoin, for the first time, ended up on the balance sheets of multiple publicly traded corporations as a hedge against inflation.
