Crypto Tradable Indices (CTIs) Weekly Performance

Crypto markets are pulled down again by inflation fears as the FED announced more hiking rates to tame inflation. Trakx Top 10 Crypto Index is down 9%.

The worst performer is the newly launched Trakx ESG Index,  which lost 13% over the week. On top of interest rates fears it suffered from Avalanche’s recent scandal (AVAX -20%) and the publication of "Evil Conspiracy" Investigation (U Today news).
