Key Crypto Market Figures

Crypto Tradable Indices (CTIs) Weekly Performance

Despite the SEC charging Genesis and Gemini with offering unregistered securities, crypto markets were a sea of green last week led by double-digit gains in the major tokens. As a result, our Top 10 Crypto CTI rose almost 15% - the strongest monthly gain since mid-July. The move higher was largely fundamentally driven and reflected improved sentiment following the release of the December US CPI report. While in line with expectations, it nevertheless continued to point to decelerating inflation boosting hopes the Fed tightening cycle is nearing completion.

Two standout performers were Solana and Avalanche, which gained 43% and 33% respectively. Both feature in our ESG CTI and our Top 10 Proof-of-Stake CTIs helping them rally 38% and 19% respectively. The rise in Solana appears to reflect crypto players’ belief that after last year’s shenanigans, entirely attributable to people, not the tech, demand for Defi projects will do well in 2023. Avalanche, meanwhile, gained on news that Ava labs have partnered with AWS to offer crypto infrastructure.
