The Christmas period is known for fun, traditions and of course gift giving. In addition to the usual gifts like toys and clothes, there is a new trend emerging in gifting culture: cryptocurrencies. Despite a challenging 2022 for cryptocurrencies, with many platforms bankrupt, some forward-thinking donors have gifted Bitcoin (BTC), Dogecoin (DOGE), and Ethereum (ETH). Now, a year later, we look at the value of those gifts.

Back on crypto gifts
Imagine if last Christmas season you decided to give your loved ones $100 in one of three prominent cryptocurrencies. This gesture, which may have seemed like a risky gamble at the time, would now yield significant returns. With the recent rise of the cryptocurrency market in 2023, these cryptocurrencies have shown a significant increase. The total investment of $300 in BTC, DOGE, and ETH will now amount to $559.61, an increase of 86.5%.
By comparison, an equal investment in traditional markets like the S&P 500 ETF would now be worth about $123.72, an increase of only 23.7%. These numbers highlight not only the potential of cryptocurrencies as an investment, but also the unique opportunities they offer compared to traditional markets.
The future perspective of cryptocurrencies as a gift
With optimistic forecasts and growing interest, giving in cryptocurrencies can be viewed as an investment in the future, and a gift that will likely continue to grow.
Looking to the future, with expectations of significant growth in the cryptocurrency market, the trend of giving cryptocurrencies during the holidays seems to be increasing. It provides an exciting, if volatile, opportunity for both giver and recipient to be part of the financial future. In a world where we are increasingly looking for meaningful, long-lasting gifts, a small piece of cryptocurrency could be the most lasting gift under the Christmas tree.
