Bitcoin and Solana are leading the cryptocurrency market cap back to $2.5 trillion.

To cap off a good week, Bitcoin and Solana both registered slight increases on Friday. Other assets performed well as well.

Although it isn't exactly a Christmas miracle, today's minor increase in market prices, which is part of a week-long trend, should bring some holiday pleasure to crypto investors.

According to CoinGecko data, the overall crypto market capitalisation has climbed over 10% in the last week, passing $2.5 trillion for the first time since December 8.

In the same time frame, Bitcoin has increased by roughly 8%. It's just around the $51,000 range. While Ethereum, which is currently trading above $4,100, has seen modest weekly increases of less than 4%, its competitor Solana has seen weekly gains of more than 10%.

Outside of the top-5, price hikes were even higher. Terra's Luna is worth over 50% more than it was at this time last week; it crested the $100 mark earlier today for the first time in the coin's history. And Avalanche and Polygon—though down over the last 24 hours—posted gains of more than 20% for the week. Coin was also up 12% today and 24% for the week. This week, announced it had splashed out big money to purchase a Super Bowl ad as the exchange goes head-to-head with FTX to convert sports fans into crypto junkies.
