How to buy Maker in Lithuania
Is MKR a good investment in Lithuania?
Maker coin (MKR) was created in 2015 but officially released to the market in January 2017 with a price of $22.10. It didn’t have many fluctuations until August of the same year when it suddenly reached $288 and continued to grow until it ended the year with a price of $959. That was a surprisingly profitable investment for someone in only one year. The first months of 2018 were even better for Maker owners because its price mounted up to $1,369.99, which was again a record for this token. But it didn’t last long, and the MKR price dropped and ended the year at $449. 2019 and 2020 passed with almost stable prices between $500-$700. MKR again surprised the market in 2021 and reached its highest price of $4,341 in April. For the second time, Maker showed its holders that it could be a profitable investment if they have more tolerance.
