The crypto space has been the hottest topic in recent times, with various investors turning their focus to digital currencies expecting higher returns. However, due to the current market downturn, investors are keeping a close watch on the crypto market for cues on when the market will improve.

Notably, the market witnessed a steep loss on May 12, wiping off over US$200 billion of its value. However, another topic that also gained attention in recent days is the blockchain.

Many people misinterpret that the blockchain and cryptos are the same. Even though blockchain powers digital currencies, blockchain is a different thing. It is a distributed ledger technology that focuses on keeping records in a decentralized manner.

For instance, a bank stores information on its internal server, whereas blockchain technology allows the creation of an unchangeable public ledger that allows access to all the users. In addition, blockchain technology is widely used for anonymity and for protecting users' privacy.

Here, we discuss top blockchain stocks that may be worth exploring amid the crypto downturn.

Bottom line:

The recent market downturn due to various macroeconomic factors and the elevated inflation has forced many investors to keep a distance from risky bets. The recent CPI data showed that inflation, although slowed its pace, is still increasing. The consumer-price index rose 0.3% in April, following an increase of 1.2% in the prior month, renewing fears of a further increase in interest rate by the Federal Reserve. So, investors should closely evaluate the companies before investing in stocks.
