Crypto Market Daily Highlights – BTC Ends Seven Day Losing Streak

Key Insights:

  • It was a bullish end to the week for the crypto to ten, with XRP finding much-needed support to lead the way.
  • Following the 3AC bankruptcy filing, news of more platforms laying off staff failed to spook investors.
  • The total crypto market cap rose for the second time in eight sessions. A $2.58 billion increase left the market cap down by $70 billion for the week.

It was a bullish Sunday for the crypto market. Bitcoin (BTC) ended its seven-day losing streak. While XRP  found strong support, gains across the rest of the top ten were modest.

The fallout from the crypto winter continued to hit the market, with news of exchanges reducing headcounts a reminder of market conditions.

However, crypto market headwinds remained the primary drag, with inflation, Fed monetary policy, and the threat of a US recession testing investor appetite.

With the US markets closed today, the NASDAQ 100 Mini will need considering, with the crypto market continuing to track the US market.
