The cryptocurrency market digest (BTC, LDO, SOL). Overview for 09.01.2023


The BTC has risen to 17,197 USD. Weekly increase is assessed at 3.33%.

For now, the technical picture is mostly positive. Firstly, after the week closed above 17,000 USD, the daily chart formed a Bullish Engulfing pattern, which gives a chance to buyers. Secondly, the crypto market restored its correlation with the US indices, and they are doing quite good.

The medium resistance is at 17,200 USD and has no strategic meaning already. The resistance level of 17,350 USD is worth looking at because if it is broken away, the chances for reaching 17,650 USD will increase.

On Monday, capitalisation of the crypto market is 848,533 billion USD. The BTC takes up 39.1%, the ETH – 18.9%.

In the nearest future, attention will be focused on the FTX and Genesis exchanges. Moreover, the market will check out the inflation report from the US (Thursday).

Genesis is risking a lot

The management of the Genesis Global Trading crypto company is laying off 30% of staff and considering bankruptcy. According to WSJ, the Genesis project is now employing 145 people.
