BGB: Back On Track
Several indicators including MACD and Bollinger Bands or even RSI are showing the (continued) reversal of trend after BGB reached its lowest level of US$0.413070 since June 2023. BGB is also one of the few cryptocurrencies that ended the week in the green with a +1.3% return. In contrast, Bitcoin’s opening price last week (US$26,188.69) was 10.6% lower than the week from August 14 - 20 (US$29,283.26) and its 7D performance stands at -0.4%.
While the Top 5 had to experience 4 to 5 days of bleeding out of 7, BGB only saw 3, which were of lower degree of losses than the others as well. That logically led to BGB maintaining a consistently low volatility throughout the last four weeks.
More BGB trading activities were recorded this week, i.e. 7D BGB volume increased by nearly 10%. That means BGB has not only been able to keep a steady liquidity ratio of 0.02 over the last four weeks but is also achieving higher levels.

On a side note, recent data shows that BGB has become, once again, the exchange token with the highest potential. The disproportionate growth between BGB value and Bitget makes room for BGB to soar higher - are you ready?
Investors Are Seemingly Ditching Riskier Assets
Bitcoin’s losses were extended by another 0.4% this week, with the lowest BTC price being US$25,984. That could be the result of rising U.S. bond yields, a situation where investors expect to earn more by holding government bonds even after adjusting for inflation. On top of that, the FED Chair Jerome Powell signals possible further rate hikes during his speech at Jackson Hole; the market has already begun to price in another 25 bps for the next FOMC accordingly. Affected are stocks, crypto-related stocks and crypto alike, hence the drop in their prices as well as volume.
Alts surely suffered, too; the global market cap slided 4.7% further to US$1.05 trillion. All crypto stocks saw two-figure volume decline this week, regardless of their performance.
Dire consequences have arised following the mounting regulatory pressure on Binance, including being shut out of the banking system, mainly in the U.S. Payment card issuers Mastercard and Visa are the latest to give the exchange a blow, bringing their crypto card partnership with Binance to an end. Visa already stopped issuing new Binance crypto cards in July, and Mastercard joined their peer by announcing the closing of their crypto card pilot programs with Binance in four Latin America and Middle East countries of Argentina, Brazil, Colombia and Bahrain.
