Commentary

  • Bitcoin maintained its relatively low volatility this week – it moved between 9k and 9500, largely following SPX’s lead, but all its moves happened pretty quickly and most of the time it was quite calm.

  • Altcoins, on the other hand, have been extremely volatile, with many low- and mid-tier alts up quite a lot in the past week. This is true across types of alts – DeFi coins, the coins in SHIT, exchange tokens, “bigger alts,” etc. – and it’s been pretty consistently happening all week.

  • Specifically worth highlighting is the continued ascent of DeFi coins – many are rallying a ton, with newly hot coins like AMPL up quite a lot.


Announcements

  • FTX launched VET markets (spot, futures, and leveraged tokens).
