Key Crypto Market Figures

Trakx Weekly Update: August 14, 2023

CTIs Weekly Performance

After several negative price actions last week, this was a relatively stable week for the crypto market. The decentralised exchange CTI gained 4% thanks to Thorchain's (Rune) impressive weekly performance of 43%.

The weakest performer was the centralised exchange CTI, which was down 1% on the week.

Trakx Inflation Hedge and NFT Metaverse CTIs also suffered a 1% loss.

Amidst the various fluctuations, Bitcoin maintained its stability. The flagship cryptocurrency showcased its resilience, edging up by a modest 1% throughout the week. This consistency in performance further solidifies Bitcoin's role as a benchmark within the crypto ecosystem.

Last week, PayPal accomplished a notable milestone as the first major fintech company to incorporate digital assets into its payment and transfer systems. The outcome was the introduction of a stablecoin pegged to the US dollar, named PayPal USD. US Representative Maxine Waters, a member of the Democratic Party, expressed significant apprehension regarding the move, particularly in the absence of a comprehensive federal framework for regulating digital assets.

On the regulatory side, the Fed is creating a new supervisory program to oversee the activities of the banks it supervises related to cryptocurrency, blockchain technology, and tech-driven nonbank partnerships, with the aim of complementing its existing supervisory process and strengthening the oversight of tech-driven activities.
