The 10 best-selling assets on BUX Zero in January

January is over so it’s time to look back on the first month of the year. Which assets were the most popular among our BUX Zero investors? Let’s take a look at the top 10.

1. Bitcoin

We launched crypto on BUX Zero at the beginning of January, so you now buy and sell various cryptocurrencies within the app. Crypto had an extremely volatile start to the year and Bitcoin crashed down to $33,000. For the hodlers among you, it was perhaps the perfect moment to buy the dip. Could crypto be part of your long-term investment strategy alongside stocks and ETFs? Read this article to find out more.

2. BUX Token

The BUX Token is a utility token on the Binance Smart Chain. BUX Token is the native cryptocurrency of BUX. We are working hard to add features and utility for the BUX Token to improve your investing experience on BUX Zero. We’ll keep you posted on further developments.

3. S&P 500 ETF  (Vanguard)

The S&P 500 is the major index in the US, containing 500 of the largest names on the stock market. As a company, you have to meet a number of criteria to be included in the index. For example, you’ll need a market capitalisation of several billion dollars. This ETF is widely diversified across the American economy and is generally one of the most popular assets on BUX Zero.

4. TUI

As the world begins to open up again, we are all feeling a sense of wanderlust. Lots of countries are now relaxing their rules. As a result, many are expecting a hot summer in 2022, although some analysts think the tourism sector won’t recover fully until 2024. Whatever happens, TUI is usually in the top ten most-purchased assets on BUX Zero, and this month was no different.

5. Apple

Apple needed to deliver a strong report in its latest quarterly earnings.  And luckily they did! iPhone sales continue to rise, while Apple is also making plenty of cash through its Services business. The stock got a decent boost after the latest quarterly report and, as we can see from the top ten list, some of you probably rode the wave.

6. Ethereum

Like Bitcoin, Ethereum also had a difficult start to the year. The second-largest cryptocurrency ended 2021 at nearly $4,800, but it dropped to almost $2,000 in mid-January. Ethereum has been a key part of the latest crypto trend: NFTs (or non-fungible tokens). 

7. Tesla

Many have been betting on Tesla’s demise for years, but Elon Musk keeps proving them wrong! Sales are increasing around the world, and Tesla just reported another record quarter of deliveries. 

8. Philips

The Dutch company’s balance sheet took a hit in 2021 after they were forced to recall some ventilator devices and other products. On top of that, there’s been trouble in the supply chain. Now, Philips wants to begin the year with a fresh start. CEO Frans van Houten recently announced an increase in sales of three to five percent. After the slump last year, many of you decided to buy the stock in January.

9. Automation & Robotics ETF (iShares)

This ETF includes approximately 120 companies in the artificial intelligence and robotics sector. It includes microchip makers like NVIDIA and AMD. Incidentally, this ETF was among the top five most-popular ETFs on BUX Zero during most of 2021. And the demand is clearly still high going into the new year.

10. Air France-KLM

Will we finally see a sky full of planes again in 2022? Tourism is not quite back to previous levels, but we’re heading in the right direction (unless another variant comes along to spoil your summer holiday plans). Nevertheless, many investors are optimistic about a return and investing in airline stocks.
