Stocks Surge While Crypto Market Lags

To start off the week, global stocks are on the rise, providing a positive outlook for the market. However, the crypto market continues to struggle with minimal week-over-week price movements. Despite this, the tech world is buzzing with anticipation for the new wave of IPOs.

Instacart’s Impressive Performance
