Crypto Traded Indices (CTIs) Weekly Performance

Crypto markets have been very positive this week, having recovered from the correction of the previous week. Ether hits a new All-Time High over USD 3,000.

All Trakx indices benefited from the positive momentum: Trakx Diversifier (+60%) is the best performer due to Fusion (FSN +145% after last week's negative performance of -27%) and Redd coin (RDD +97%). It looks like Fusion is surfing on the layer2 and interoperability trend. An interesting alternative to Matic or Fantom, which have both outperformed lately. It looks like Fusion works with AnySwap and Fantom, two protocols part of the Andre Cronje ecosystem, a well-known crypto developer.

Centralised Exchanges (+43%) have also well-performed thanks to Okex exceptional traction (OKB +131%).
