The year 2021 could go down as the year of many things, including another year that cryptocurrency became more of a mainstream topic and investment.

As cryptocurrencies became more talked about, many also gained in value in 2021, including three of the most popular names.

Here’s a look at how Bitcoin, Dogecoin and Ethereum have peformed from the start of 2021 to now.

What Happened: Bitcoin (CRYPTO: BTC) gained throughout 2021 and was added to the balance sheet of Tesla Inc (NASDAQ: NASDAQ:TSLA), Block Inc (NYSE: SQ) and other publicly traded companies during the year.

Dogecoin (CRYPTO: DOGE) was one of the most searched for cryptocurrencies in 2021 and exploded in value thanks to popular names like Elon Musk and Mark Cuban publicly supporting the “meme crypto.”

Ethereum (CRYPTO: ETH) gained in popularity and usage with the rising trend of non-fungible tokens, with many utilizing the Ethereum blockchain.
