Market News

Bitcoin had its worst-performing week since May as it slumped below 57k while Ethereum also struggled dipping below 4k. The steep sell-off — without a clear catalyst aside from technical factors — drove $883 million in liquidations on Wednesday. Most alts followed suit to fall over 10%, with the notable exception of some metaverse tokens like SAND and MANA continuing their relentless growth. The C10 fund avoided much of the downside by holding 50% of its assets in cash this week.

Another exception to the selloff was’s CRO token that re-entered C20 this week and surging almost 50% following the announcement that they had spent $700 million to secure the naming rights to the Staples Center in California — home to the LA Lakers and the Grammy Awards. The 20 year deal is staggering considering is only five years old and the ninth-largest crypto exchange by daily trading volume.

While stock markets haven’t cratered alongside crypto this week, traditional markets continue to grapple with the potential for hawkish central banks derailing the stock market bull run. This week’s strong retail and manufacturing numbers in key regions including the US may be viewed in a positive light, however, cynics point to this as signs that consumers are bracing for inflation — increasing the likelihood that central banks will be forced to act. The market reaction has, however, been obscured by a growing pandemic wave in Western Europe.

Highly-vaccinated Austria has just imposed a new COVID lockdown in response to case numbers that rival earlier peaks. Thankfully, mortality rates remain comparatively low. These events have driven some risk-off sentiment, with tech stocks outperforming the broader market (which is still up). Bonds also had a good few days, with yields falling and the dollar strengthening, the latter weighing down gold over the week.
