June 23 Highlights: Mixed Cryptos, Polygon Soars 24%


The crypto market as a whole is mixed. It’s a strong day for the metaverse and gaming tokens.

Top Cryptos

The best cryptos are calm, with most seeing slight gains and losses. Solana stood out by gaining more than 3%. Bitcoin was trading for $20,560 at the time of writing, registering minor gains in the past 24 hours.

Cryptos outside the top 10 were doing very well. Shiba continues to win and is up 8% today. Polygon is back in the top 20, adding nearly a quarter to its value after investors bought the coin lower.
