Expert commented

An expert from CoinLedger suggested: “2024 could be an exciting year for cryptocurrency investors, with rumors of the Bitcoin halving happening sometime in the next 12 months. If the halving happens, many believe that this will spark a bull run, causing the stock value of cryptocurrencies to soar.   

“While TikTok can be helpful to learn the basics of cryptocurrencies, it is important to do more research before making any financial investments. Some TikTok influencers may advise their followers to invest in a particular crypto because they have been paid to do so, like previous scams.”
