Here’s a look at how three of the most popular cryptocurrencies have performed in 2022 and how much a hypothetical investment of $1,000 in each would be worth now.

What Happened: After a strong 2021 for the cryptocurrency market, 2022 could go down as one of the darker periods for the sector.

Among the biggest stories in the first half were the collapse of Terra (CRYPTO: LUNA) and the stablecoin TerraUSD (CRYPTO: UST). The stablecoin lost its peg and went well below the $1 level before crashing. This had a ripple effect for the cryptocurrency market causing prices to fall for many coins. Liquidations followed.

Cryptocurrency trading platforms and lenders are now facing a crunch with big names like Celsius and Voyager declaring bankruptcy. The big news items have caused losses for many cryptocurrency investors.
