Crypto Traded Indices (CTIs) Weekly Performance

Another down week for crypto markets: Trakx Top 10 Crypto dropped by 15% over the week. Both Bitcoin and Ethereum were hit on Wednesday, following the Fed’s December meeting indicating the US Federal Reserve will reduce its balance sheet. On top of less accommodating US monetary policy, Kazakhstan internet blackout is also weighting on crypto prices as Kazakhstan is the world’s second-largest bitcoin mining hub.
