Total market cap for cryptocurrencies increased 50% over the past month to $262 billion before slightly contracting in heavy trading early Thursday. Trading volume stood at $251 billion with Bitcoin rising as high as $8,900.

Investors are seeking refuge in digital assets in light of $6 trillion in U.S. monetary expansion from the Federal Reserve. (The federal government has injected nearly $3 trillion in pandemic-related stimulus.) Cryptos’ limited supply looks favorable to observers who are weary of record-setting quantitative easing (QE).

The crypto rally takes place amid historic unemployment in the U.S.: another 3.5 million workers are expected to file jobless claims this week, bringing the total to 26 million newly-unemployed Americans just in the past five weeks. Bank of America estimates 4.1 million will file for unemployment insurance.
