Who sets cryptocurrency prices?

The number of available coins and their release rate largely influences the price (supply & demand). So, the prices react to how valuable people think the currency is - the market sentiment.
When the prices rise/fall sharply, the media coverage amplifies. Investors perceive the crypto as a lucrative instrument and thus, it becomes more popular. Economic events and regulatory updates also play key roles, just like other markets.
