Crypto Tradable Indices (CTIs) Weekly Performance

Crypto fear is back over inflation concerns: The Fed said it would continue to raise interest rates until inflation is curbed, a challenge for both bitcoin and equities. As a result, digital assets were down over the week: Trakx Top 10 Crypto index is down 14% and total market capitalisation plunged under $1T.

Investors look ahead to Jackson Hole Symposium, a central bankers meeting held every year in Wyoming, USA, where the FED would announce further hiking rates.

The worst performers were among the DeFi area, usually more volatile than the rest of the digital assets. Trakx Top 10 Defi, Decentralised Exchanges and NFT Metaverse all lost 19%.
