Crypto Tradable Indices (CTIs) Weekly Performance

Crypto remains caught in the crossfire between bearish macro trends (Russia's decision to block gas flows to Europe being the latest negative development weighing on investor sentiment) and bullish crypto trends (Ethereum's long-awaited Merge is a matter of days away). Reflecting this divergence, a positive week for crypto markets as Trakx Top 10 Crypto Index is up 5% and Bitcoin’s lagging behind.

The best performer is Trakx Interoperability index (+12%) thanks to Cosmos (ATOM+22%) and Polkadot (DOT+17%). Trakx ESG has also bounced back (+9%), catching up part of the previous week's loss mainly due to Cardano (ADA +17%). See’s article Blockchain Cardano’s Vasil Upgrade Confirmed for Sept. 22.
