Crypto Tradable Indices (CTIs) Weekly Performance

After a very strong performance in January, with market leader Bitcoin up around 40% - the best monthly performance since the late bull market surge in October 2021 - prices consolidated over the past week. While the Fed confirmed prior expectations that the pace of monetary tightening was decelerating the blow-out US employment report (+517k) tempered some of the bullishness.

Amongst our CTIs the best performers were exchange indices, with the CEX and DEX CTIs up 6% and 3% respectively, an indication that the turn in crypto sentiment is expected to boost trading activity.

The subdued price action did not, however, mean the crypto community was controversy-free. A developer mined the largest ever block in Bitcoin’s history containing a cartoon wizard NFT. Some Bitcoiners celebrated the news arguing the use of such “ordinals” extends Bitcoin’s use-cases. However, the purists, who prefer to see Bitcoin used for payment transactions, were clearly unimpressed describing the transaction as “spam”. Could this be the opening salvo in yet another Bitcoin narrative war?
