The cryptocurrency market went through little volatility over the past seven days and is currently found almost where it was this time last week. The sentiment remains overly fearful as global inflation woes and economic unrest settle in.
Starting with Bitcoin, it lost roughly 1.8% in the past seven days, going through almost no volatility whatsoever. The cryptocurrency attempted a break above the critical level of $20,000 but to no avail. It was quickly rejected by the bears, which are currently seemingly in total control.
It’s also interesting to note that the BTC domination – the metric that tracks its share relative to that of the entire market, is also more or less where it was last week. This means that altcoins failed to capitalize on the uncertainty of the Bitcoin market.
This is evident in the performance of the top 10 altcoins by means of total market cap. Cardano lost 9.3%, Solana lost 10%, whereas XRP is down 7%. These are notable declines.
Perhaps the most notable event during the past week was the launch of Aptos’ mainnet and its listing on major exchanges such as Binance, Coinbase, and FTX. The community was underwhelmed, to say the least, given that top-tier exchanges rushed to list APT despite the fact that there wasn’t even a clear-cut tokenomics sheet of the token.
That said, global inflation woes continue to loom over the cryptocurrency market. In the United Kingdom, for example, inflation clocked in at levels not seen for the past 40 years.
It’s interesting to see how the next week will shape up, but the sentiment is currently very gloomy amid an overly stagnating market.
