The Crypto/Stocks Correlation Continues: Weekly Newsletter #014

Both markets are down in fear of increased inflation. Coinbase warns its users of the upcoming Ethereum merge. Canadian exchanges impose 30k CAD annual limit for altcoins.

Welcome,

According to the majority of analysts, the correlation between crypto and other riskier assets seems to be the leading factor for last week’s market decline.

Bitcoin (BTC) erased three weeks of gains after plunging 8.4%, its biggest single-digit decline in two months, taking the whole crypto market down with it. Parallelly to this, the U.S. stock indexes kept falling, extending Friday’s downturn when all three major indexes finished the week in the red.

Fear of rising inflation is the largest contributor to the chain reaction according to a Bloomberg survey.

Market update

The total global market cap of crypto fell by $14B in the last seven days, with Solana being the biggest loser in the top ten list. The asset dropped by -20.62%, followed by Cardano and Ethereum, which lost -17.73% and -16.62% respectively.
