Crypto Traded Indices (CTIs) Weekly Performance

The week is marked by a short panic liquidation over the weekend following tweets allegedly stating that the US Treasury will be cracking down on financial institutions using cryptocurrencies for money laundering.

However, Trakx Proof of Stake had a good momentum (+6%) thanks to VeChain (VET +97%) and Trakx Centralised Exchanges was hit by a correction (-13%): the worst performers are Kucoin (KCS -26%), Ascendex Bitmax (BTMX -17%) and Binance (BNB -12%).
