The weekend was all green for BGB; it also locked in one of the best 24H change last week on Sunday at 2.47% compared to BTC's 1.31%, ETH's 1.97% and BNB's 1.36%.

Indicators are suggesting that now could be a good time to buy BGB. The MACD (blue) line has crossed above the Signal (orange) line and the zero line, RSI is well within the 30-70 standard range, even the Accum/Dist line is confirming this trend.

Result In: Debt Ceiling Deal Finalised

Per an official announcement by the Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy, he and the President have reached an ‘agreement in principle', that is, to raise the debt ceiling for two years. However, the bill must pass the House and the Senate before June 05, otherwise the U.S. won't be able to fulfil the ‘government's obligations’. Markets can expect a short-term rally in appreciation of the deal, especially in crypto where the dominating reference currency is the US-Dollar.

What is the next big thing in crypto? Tokenised securities might just be what you're looking for. The latest data shows that the market cap of on-chain T-bills and ETFs has surpassed US$200 million, which merely came into existence in January 2023.

Another ongoing trend is Bitcoin NFTs. The total number of Bitcoin inscriptions tripled in May from 3,069,006 on May 01 to 9,825,343 on May 28, with most of them being texts (91%) and images (in png and webp format). Supply surging equals a rise in demand; Bitcoin NFT sales volume this month is recorded at US$155.8 million, which is more than twice the sales volume of Solana-based NFTs and five times of Polygon-based NFTs. Mind you, Solana is home to one of the biggest NFT marketplaces, whereas Polygon is picked as the trusted partner of Starbucks, Salesforce, etc. for their NFT-based loyalty program and Mastercard, for the issuance of a NFT debit card.
