Digital assets seemed to stabilize in October after sliding for months in what was dubbed “crypto winter.” The flagship cryptocurrency, bitcoin, gained 5.5% in October to end the month at around $20,374, which is far below its high of close to $70,000 in November 2021, but up from the low of $18,454 seen earlier in October.
