Crypto continues to slide, extending losses Monday after a brutal selloff Friday.

Since the November high, the crypto world has lost $1.4 trillion, according to CoinMarketCap. And in the last 24 hours, the global market cap has slipped over $75 billion.

That’s bad news for anyone who has sunk money into Bitcoin, Ethereum, Dogecoin or any of the other altcoins on the market. But it’s especially bad for people who jumped on right at the peak. We once again got curious about exactly how bad that particular return on investment might be. Here’s the grim picture of what you’d be left with now if you jumped in at the peak of each cryptocurrency. Prices are as of 10 a.m. ET Monday.
