Die letzten sieben Tage brachten zumindest in Bezug auf die Preisgestaltung keine positiven Entwicklungen, da die gesamte Marktkapitalisierung der Cryptowährung um rund 35 Milliarden US-Dollar zurückging. Dies ist darauf zurückzuführen, dass BTC und ETH kritische Widerstandsniveaus nicht überwinden konnten und derzeit unter ihnen zirkulieren.
At this time last week, Bitcoin was priced firmly at around $24,000 and we saw the cryptocurrency make an attempt to rally towards $25,000 on Saturday. Unfortunately for the bulls, the sellers stepped up and sent the market into a correctionwhich caused BTC to lose about 2.5% of its value over the past seven days.
Many of the other coins followed suit, with some obvious exceptions. FLOW seems to be the best performer of the week for once, posting a staggering rise of around 55%, all in the last 24 hours. That’s no surprise. Meta (formerly known as Facebook) announced yesterday that the company has acquired the FlowBlockchain will integrate to do that NFT-Keep expanding the universe for its users. This is interesting because according to Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin, corporate attempts to create the metaverse (like Meta’s apparent efforts in that direction) are going nowhere.
The most influential event this week was undoubtedly the widespread attack on wallets in the Solana-Network. Over 8,000 hot wallets were compromised and users saw their funds withdrawn directly. The team confirmed that this is not an issue with the Solana network, but the cryptocurrency price suffered nonetheless.
Speaking of hacks, the Nomad Bridge was also exploited. Interestingly, the hacker posted the script on a public Discord group and anyone could copy and paste it to pull funds from the bridge. The team is now offering a bounty for the return of the $190 million withdrawn.
Elsewhere, institutions could dive into the industry again, analysts at Nansen suggested in an exclusive report interview with CryptoPotato from EthCC 5 in Paris. This was further evidenced by the fact that Fairfax County Retirement Systems, which operates Virginia’s over $6.8 billion retirement fund, invested another $70 million in two different cryptocurrency yield farming funds.
The general market mood has also improved significantly in recent weeks. The cryptocurrency fear and greed index is currently at 31. While this is still considered to be in the “fear zone”, we are at least outside the “extreme fear” zone.
Speaking of improving market sentiment, some big investors also seem to think bitcoin is over the hump. For example, Anthony Scaramucci — founder of SkyBridge Capital — believes the cryptocurrency will not dip back below this year’s lows.
All in all it’s been an interesting week and very exciting to see what will happen in the future as prices seem to be reaching a point of focus.
Market Cap: $1,134 billion | 24-hour band: $83 billion | BTC dominance: 39.1%
Bitcoin: $23,204 (-2.5%) | ETH: $1,668 (-3.2%) | ADA: $0.51 (+0.3%)
