Clouds lie ahead for the global crypto market, including Bitcoin and Ether, in the next 24 hours, according to ATTMO. This translates into a slightly bearish market with downside risk. Other altcoin, such as Cardano, Dogecoin, Polygon and Chainlink face bullish sun.
Over a one-week horizon, the bullish sun will return and shine over both Bitcoin and Ether. Cloudier bearish trading conditions will, however, prevail, over Ripple’s XRP, Cardano, Binance Coin and Polkadot over this longer time horizon.
Cryptocurrencies dropped over the past 24 hours despite the latest US inflation data indicating that the peak of the interest rate cycle has been reached. Analysts now expect rate cuts to happen earlier next year than previously expected. This may boost the interest for crypto assets, as investors tend to favor assets with a potential of higher returns.
“The result would be an ongoing rally in risk-on assets – such as tech stocks and crypto. But bonds would also rally, turbocharging lower-quality tech stocks and second/third-tier crypto coins – a taste we have seen during the last two weeks,” said the Head of Research and Strategy at Matrixport, Markus Thielen.
The price of Bitcoin lost 2.6 percent over the past 24 hours to 35,758 US dollars, while the price of Ether fell 3.6 percent to 1,990 dollars. However, the two largest crypto currencies have outperformed other assets since the beginning of the year, being up 115 percent and 66 percent respectively. This triggers asset managers to expand their range of crypto-related exchange traded products (ETPs).

ARK Invest will launch five new crypto-focused exchange traded funds (ETF) together with 21 Shares, the CEO of ARK Invest, Cathie Wood told CNBC in an interview. These will be traded on the Chicago Board Options Exchange (Cboe) BZK Exchange.

Yesterday, a US court approved the treatment and disclosure of some of the confidential information pertinent to the ongoing court proceedings agreed upon by Binance and the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). This authorization stems from a joint motion for a protective order.
The SEC sued Binance back in June for alleged violations of securities laws, for misleading investors, corrupting trading volumes and much more. (Read more about ongoing crypto-related court cases here.)
Separately, Binance was subject to a second multimillion scam in less than a week’s time.
“It appears someone had 27M USDT stolen yesterday. USDT was quickly swapped for ETH, then transferred to a number of services (FixedFloat, ChangeNow, etc), and bridged to Bitcoin via THORChain. Update: The victims address is connected to the Binance deployer,” the X:er @ZachXBT wrote.
Earlier this week, CZ, the CEO of the world’s largest crypto exchange, admitted that Binance clients were kidnapped while on a business trip in Montenegro and forced to empty their crypto wallets, resulting in a total loss of roughly 12.5 million dollars. Roughly 11.8 million dollars were frozen in time.
Binance Coin put on 0.4 percent over the past 24 hours.
The SEC’s ongoing crack down on the US financial markets, and the crypto universe in particular, turns out to be highly lucrative for the US government. The regulator obtained orders for roughly 5 billion dollars in financial remedies in its fiscal year ending in Sept 2023, including fines imposed on non-crypto companies. This is the second-highest amount ever.
“In fiscal year 2023, the Division recommended enforcement actions addressing a range of alleged misconduct in the crypto asset securities space, including billion-dollar crypto fraud schemes, unregistered crypto asset offerings, platforms, and intermediaries, and illegal celebrity touting,“ the US regulator said.
“In fiscal year 2023, the Division’s investigations resulted in litigated charges alleging massive crypto frauds, including charges against Terraform Labs and its founder Do Kwon; Richard Heart and three entities that he controls, Hex, PulseChain, and PulseX; FTX CEO Samuel Bankman-Fried, and other FTX executives,” it added.
The bankrupt crypto exchange FTX has over the past days moved more than 250,000 Solana tokens to the US crypto exchange Kraken, Lookonchain reported. “Currently, FTX’s public addresses on #Solana only have 3,408 $SOL ($185K) left,” it added.
Solana, the seventh-largest crypto currency, rallied 7.3 percent on the news, with traders being forced to liquidate short and long positions exceeding 13 million dollars over the past 24 hours. Solana has skyrocketed 505 percent so far this year.
