Trakx Weekly Update: October 10, 2022
Key Crypto Market Figures
Crypto Tradable Indices (CTIs) Weekly Performance
Crypto prices continued to be largely range-bound, with Bitcoin oscillating around the $20,000 level, concomitant with the ebb and flow of speculation about a Fed pivot driven by mixed economic data but continued hawkish Fed-speak.
One bright spot has been the Trakx lending CTI, which posted a solid 12% gain on the back of a surge in the Maker – the governance token of MakerDAO. Its holders last week voted to invest $500mn in US Treasuries and corporate bonds – a move that will further diversify the underlying collateral while providing additional yield without jeopardizing solvency - more on this Cointelegraph.
