BGB Back Above US$0.44

BGB ended the week on a good note with an increase of 10%, second to Bitcoin (+13.9%) only. Accumulation is back to early October’s levels, and RSI is approaching February’s highs, when BGB achieved its wonderful all-time high at the time.

What did we talk about in last week’s issue? We were waiting for BGB volatility to pick up, cuz it would equal exactly the rise we are seeing. Too high like XRP and it’ll send us on an emotional rollercoaster, too low implies a slow death; some spices are needed after a few weeks of red, but of course we’ll love to see this measure returns to its consistent level now that BGB turned positive.

BGB volume rose proportionally with the token’s upward momentum at 12.5% to US$127.9 million and has the tendency to exceed that of Bitcoin again soon at the healthy 0.03 mark.

Something Good Besides Spot Bitcoin ETFs

We get it: Spot Bitcoin ETFs are in the spotlight, and for legitimate reasons. If you’re not familiar with the subject, we suggest reading our guides to crypto ETFs here:

They’ve brought us the good hopium that pushed Bitcoin prices to its yearly high of US$35,150 and flipped the Fear Greed Index to the right side at 63/100. Shorts got rekt; green covered crypto ETFs and crypto stocks.

But there are other things to celebrate as well. TradFi don’t necessarily wait for a spot Bitcoin ETF to adopt crypto; they have already embraced this inevitable digital revolution. Chainalysis’ latest report says that ‘North America’s 76.9% of transaction volume is driven by transfers of $1 million or more’ and most importantly, activities take place on DeFi protocols and CEXs ‘evenly’. Three things to be taken from this piece of news are (1) DeFi is poised to grow, (2) institutional adoption is already happening, especially in the U.S., and (3) because institutional demand is huge, we can have even more faith in the approval of one, if not several, spot Bitcoin ETFs.

Also proving that crypto will definitely become the ‘new norm’ is how on-chain trades and settlements are being tested and executed more ‘casually’: from PetroChina’s first international crude oil trade of one million barrels, Deutsche Bank and Standard Charter’s SC Ventures completing the first stablecoin swaps to test out the SWIFT Killer network UDPN to World Bank being the first issuer of the Brussels-based securities settlement house Euroclear’s newly launched digital securities issuance service. Apparently, banks and settlement houses are getting more comfortable with the digital space, which should further accelerate the crypto adoption on a large scale.

Last but not least, SBF finally took the stand. We will deliver this week’s recap ASAP, and in the meanwhile, check out the previous pieces of information available in the previous parts of the proceedings:
