Trakx Weekly Update: May 1, 2023
Key Crypto Market Figures
CTIs Weekly Performance
Crypto prices regained some momentum last week with BTC up 7% at $29,400 and ETH up 2% at $1,894. The top performing CTI this week was Trakx NFT Metaverse, up 5%. Regulation was still at the centre of attention with the emigration of US crypto companies picking up in recent days, and Coinbase Global receiving a license to operate in Bermuda. This is part of the expected reaction from old US regulators cracking down on the crypto industry with aggressive enforcement campaign. Europe, on the other end, recently approved a wide-range regulatory framework with the Markets in Crypto Assets (MiCA) bill that will allow a unified approach to the legislation and a marked contrast to the US approach.
