The week kicked off with a massive market rally, allowing Bitcoin to register it’s largest daily green candle in over a year after surging over $6,000 and touching $45,000. Global markets initially reacted very positively to the news that the US and many other Western nations said they will not get directly involved in the Russia-Ukraine war.
However, the reality of rising oil prices (which breached $110 this week) driving inflation and the expected rate hikes to bring it under control could not be ignored. The Fed’s Jerome Powell made this point during midweek addresses, helping stem the slide in bond yields that began Monday. By the end of the week Bitcoin had retraced back to the $41,000 region, with Ethereum and most altcoins following a very similar trajectory.
Equity markets were not quite so volatile, with last week’s trends continuing to play out: less-geopolitically-exposed US stocks continue to edge upwards, whilst European indices continue to slide. China, too, continues to suffer as the country braces for a coming commodity shortage due to the war. Gold continues to benefit from increased global uncertainty, and a clearly-weaker global growth outlook.
Taking a step back from price action, crypto once again demonstrated its potential, with Ukraine raising over $50 million via crypto donations. Inflows ramped up on Wednesday when the country’s official Twitter account initially confirmed an airdrop for donors. However, Mykhailo Fedorov, the country’s Vice Prime Minister and Minister of Digital Transformation, walked this position back, instead proposing the issuance of NFTs to support the Ukrainian Armed Forces.
Finally, in a promising development for the Invictus Hyperion Fund (IHF), portfolio company Syntropy has announced the successful award of a patent for the Decentralized Autonomous Routing Protocol (DARP) that is the backbone of the Syntropy tech stack — helping validate the team’s hard work, and cementing their position as pioneers in networking technology. A number of additional patents are pending approval.
