Crypto Traded Indices (CTIs) Weekly Performance

Most digital assets suffered drawdowns in the past week. Despite Bitcoin becoming officially a legal tender in El Salvador, crypto markets dropped suddenly on Tuesday, partly driven by the “buy the news, sell the fact” on bitcoin, and also further various regulatory headlines. Every move tends to be exacerbated by high leverage within the crypto sphere. Despite the negative context, Trakx Proof of Stake posted a positive return (+1%), proving the resilience and traction of the sustainable protocol.
