BGB Sail: October Edition
Our BGB Sail Series provides an in-depth analysis of BGB performance, together with a recap of the market situation at the end of each month.
BGB Sail: September Edition can be found here.
In this UPtober, the global crypto market cap increased from US$1,153,294,059,599 to US$1,351,964,680,376, which translates to a rise of 17.2%. The biggest news is Bitcoin did not only hold onto the US$27,000 but climbed to US$29,000 on October 20 then soared to US$35,000 on the very last day of the month. Bitcoin’s market cap rose by a good 28.3%, but it’s definitely not the most impressive. Solana led the altcoin rally that has been following Bitcoin’s comeback with a 66.8% market cap change, flipping Cardano and Dogecoin to take the 8th place on the list of top crypto by market cap. SOL breached US$35 on October 31 before crushing US$40 on November 01, 2023. As of November 15, SOL was already on its way to US$60. SOL volume in October more than doubled that in September at US$21,495,338,444.
You’ll ask: What the F is going on here? There are some explanations for the surge of Solana, including the FTX bankruptcy court’s decision to ensure that the liquidation of FTX assets is executed in batches every week to avoid a market cascade. So no supply pressure here, SOL successfully reclaimed the US$20 support level towards the end of September, and an upgrade to the whole ecosystem have been driving its prices to this year’s highs. Data analytics firm Santiment predicts a bullish momentum for Solana as ‘nearly 2% of all discussions related to top 100 assets are related to SOL’.
When we take a look at the performance of the Top 10, SOL leaves other L1 tokens way behind with a 70% jump in value. That comes as a result of increasing TVL and DeFi activities on Solana, especially of DEXs.
All eyes were on the spot Bitcoin ETFs talks and the FTX trials, which are all covered here:

BGB Performance in October
BGB endured a decline of less than 10% for half of October, then picked up pace in the last five days, locking in a monthly high of US$0.486946, which is 5.8% higher than September’s US$0.46014. The 30D volume shows a minor 4.4% decrease from US$546 million in September, but we were still well above the half-billion mark.
Except for MX and CRO, who enjoyed a growth of more than 20%, most exchange tokens see smaller increases in market cap than the Top 10. Nevertheless, the humble 5% change in October still holds the difference of US$100++ million between BGB and GT’s market cap in place. HT is the only one in the list to end the month on a negative note, with its market cap down by 1%.
BGB has recently hit its new all-time high at US$US$0.583651 on November 13, and the entire story is covered here: BGB Achieving New ATH In November. New to BGB and Bitget? Check out this Bitget Token (BGB) Introduction and its monthly analyses below:
