Recurring market commentary on what's happening in the crypto markets, summarized by the Crypto Broker team at Crypto Finance AG.
This week was marked by M&A activity, and partnerships in the crypto space.
In the data space, Skew was acquired by Coinbase for an undisclosed sum. Genesis Volatility and LedgerX are teaming up. In the custody space, Galaxy landed the first (disclosed) $1 billion deal within the crypto sector, with the planned $1.2 billion acquisition of BitGO.
On the regulatory side, Gary Gensler (SEC chair), in his first public hearing, clearly advocated regulating crypto exchanges as they are currently not subject to any market supervision: neither the SEC nor the CFTC. Therefore, there is no protection against manipulation and fraud.
On the flow side, this week we saw asset manager rotations from small coins to older altcoins (LTC, BCH, XLM, LINK, EOS).
The coming weekend could be interesting for Cardano (ADA). Yesterday, Cardano managed to break out of two months of sideways movement (USD 1-1.5). If momentum players now play this breakout, it might not be too unlikely over the weekend to see prices around USD 2.
Funding yields have also improved again this week. This could continue over the weekend. Thus, setting up funding trades today over the weekend could be interesting, because on the one hand, funding is picking up, and on the other hand, the futures basis looks historically quite favourable.
