Crypto Tradable Indices (CTIs) Weekly Performance

Crypto markets are set for the Ethereum (ETH) Merge scheduled this Wednesday, this event is a major event in crypto as the second largest blockchain will upgrade its consensus to a sustainable mechanism. Markets are still unpredictable though: digital assets remained steady as the ECB increased interest rates by 75bips but investors are weary of the American latest Consumer Price Index to be released tomorrow. Trakx top 10 crypto index is up 7%.

All trakx indices are positive over the week. The best performer is Trakx Interoperability index (+11%) thanks to Cosmos (ATOM+21% over the week) as Cosmos trends with very positive adoption markers (see newsbtc) and could be about to announce Cosmos 2.0 at the end of the month (see news).
