With traditional financial markets in flux over recession fears, investors are keeping away from risky assets, including many cryptocurrencies. This has resulted in a massive fall in the prices of high-value crypto assets like Monero (XMR) and Maker (MKR) this year. Interestingly, investors are showing much interest in new tokens like Snowfall Protocol (SNW), which has witnessed a sharp jump during the first phase of the presale. In this article, we take a look into how Monero (XMR), Maker (MKR), and Snowfall Protocol (SNW) are doing in a falling market.
Monero (XMR) battles fiercely for revival

Monero was recently in the spotlight for the Optus data breach, which exposed the accounts of 10 million customers to hackers who demanded $1 million in Monero (XMR) in exchange for not selling the stolen data.
Maker (MKR) jumps over 65% in 30 days
