One of the factors which is probably the most important factor in determining the price of cryptocurrency. A good example is when Paypal announced that it will support bitcoin, bitcoin cash and other crypto. This is a huge thing and also the human emotion which is widely known in crypto universe as FOMO, the fear of missing out, this was one of the key factors back in 2017 which determined the prices of cryptocurrencies. When Bitcoin reached its all-time high, everybody is talking about that and because of that it affected every crypto prices.

3. Usefulness of the cryptocurrency

4. Whales

Burning of some of the quantities of the cryptocurrency might cause a huge rise in price, because this action might tend to reduce the circulating supply of that particular coin
