Trakx Weekly Update: May 29, 2023
Key Crypto Market Figures
CTIs Weekly Performance
Last week ended on a positive note for all Trakx Crypto Tradable Indices (CTIs), with a 5% rise for Trakx Top 10 Crypto. The best performing CTI was Trakx Lending which rebounded 8% over the week driven by Aave and Kava (+7% each). The ESG CTI, that captures the evolution of a basket of ESG top rated crypto assets, gained 6% over the week. The weakest performer, Trakx Inflation Hedge, was flat.
A declining correlation between bitcoin and equities noted by the market research firm K33 in a report is revitalising the appeal for investors to include the asset in a diversified portfolio. This declining correlation between crypto and stocks was also mentioned in Ryan Shea paper Crypto Impact: Hard vs Soft Landings. Crypto regulation continues to remain at the forefront of global discussions. In the UK, while the government is eager to turn the country into a hub for the industry and regulate consumer crypto trading as a financial service, a group of MPs has urged the government to regulate cryptocurrency as gambling. The release of Beijing’s web3 white paper alongside Hong Kong’s regulatory push for cryptocurrency exchanges could indicate the initiation of a more inclusive stance towards digital assets in the region. Zimbabwe’s digital coin went live earlier this month to end decades of chaos with soaring inflation and give people an easy way to use the coin for transactions and loans.
