- The Autopilot € performance for December was -12.59%. The ₿ performance for the Autopilot was +8.07%. That's in a market where the index of the Top 200 excluding stablecoins did -20.61%. So we did good! LUNA, NEAR, MATIC, and CELO are mostly to thank for that.

🔬Markets: Settle on €1.9 Trillion, a 183% gain for 2021
The Global Market Capitalisation of Crypto returned to where it was in early October and cleared most of the last quarter's gains. It's a 16.54% loss for the month, and even a 20.61% loss if we look at the largest 200 cryptos excluding stablecoins (INDEXNASDAQ: CMC200).
It all went well until December 3 when the market crashed about 20% and then oscillated between €1.9T and €2.1T before finally closing the year on €1.9T. It's "a little" down from its annual - and all-time - high of €2.5T of mid-November but it's 1.8 times where it started the year. If you need to sum it up broadly, let's just say the Crypto market more than doubled in size in 2021. So while the month - and quarter - went exactly in the exact opposite direction of most analysts' expectations, the year has been good to crypto in general.
Bitcoin lost 19.03% over the month and seems to have severely veered off course from the popular "stock to flow" predictions. At least for now.
The Crypto Market Capitalisation excluding BTC did a little better than the market overall with a loss of "only" 13.9%. If we only take the top 200 coins minus BTC and remove the stablecoins, the performance was the worst of all the indices we look at, with a loss of 22% over the month(INDEXNASDAQ: CMC200EX). That can likely be attributed to the continuous growth of the stablecoin's market capitalization as well as the fact that some money is rotating out of "top coins" to take some profits and move into smaller assets in search of more return potential.
The OSOM Crypto Autopilot keeps on doing a good job in that weird Q4 market. The € performance was -12.59%. The ₿ performance for the Autopilot was 8.07%.
🏎️ The coins that most contributed positively to the BTC performance this month were, in that order: LUNA, NEAR, MATIC, CELO. If you are looking for a theme, it's "alternative to Ethereum and algorithmic stablecoin".
