Your weekly one click crypto letter is here.
FUD (Fear, Uncertainty, and Doubt) continues to rise as investors are concerned that the FTX meltdown will prolong the contagious crypto winter.
A recent report shows that FTX owes its 50 top unsecured creditors a total of $3.1 billion, while on the other end of the spectrum two of the largest Bitcoin investors are looking to buy even more of the digital asset.
At the time of writing, Bitcoin is down by -3.42% in the last 7 days and is trading at $16,168. The second largest digital asset, Ethereum, lost -10.13% of its value and is sitting at $1,135. The total market cap of crypto is $817Bn, with BTC having a market dominance at 37.95%.
More Than $1Bn FTX Client Funds Are Missing
One billion dollars or more of client funds are missing from FTX. A large portion of the $10Bn that was secretly transferred from FTX to the group’s trading company, Alameda Research, has reportedly vanished. John Ray III, the newly appointed CEO of FTX, criticized Sam Bankman-Fried for a total lack of reliable data and a total failure of corporate controls.
El Salvador To Buy One Bitcoin Every Day: President Bukele
President Nayib Bukele of El Salvador declared that his nation would purchase one bitcoin per day for the foreseeable future. In the past year, Bukele has been outspoken about his strategy of buying the dip during crypto market crises. Currently, the Central American nation holds a bitcoin treasury of over 2,000 BTC, worth approximately $40M.
Pantera Capital Reveals $149,000 Bitcoin Price Target Upon Next Halving
Pantera Capital, a cryptocurrency investment firm, predicts that the next Bitcoin halving event will spark a bull rally.

Historically, November is one of Bitcoin’s best months with an average gain of +53.15% in the last nine years. Unfortunately, this year the macroeconomic condition, crypto domino effect, and FTX fallout led to another series of price drops and bankrupting firms.
The initial wave of the Terra (LUNA) collapse disturbed the market for three months, and if the current situation shows a similar impact it will be harmful to the industry. Right now, analysts are keeping eye on the $13,500 price level of BTC as the next liquidity zone.
Some long-term crypto holders view this period as a golden opportunity to buy fundamental cryptocurrencies at low prices. Will they be right, or we are in for an even longer bear cycle?
