News recap: crypto market attempts to get over the FTX crash

MicroStrategy will continue buying bitcoins, the EU wants to ban anonymous crypto transactions, while Cardano is set to launch its Djed stablecoin in 2023. Read our News recap to learn more about the main crypto events that happened between 10th and 24th November 2022.

Crypto market in numbers

The cryptocurrency market cap fluctuated between a range of $800 billion and $855 billion between 11th and 22nd November 2022. Amid rumours of Genesis Trading’s insolvency, the indicator fell below $800 billion, hitting a five-month low. After a mid-November peak of $900 billion, the crypto market cap lost about 13% and stood at around $780 billion. However, cryptocurrencies managed to recover slightly, with their capitalisation approaching $820 billion – the figure observed in early November.

Market trading activity remained low. Average daily trading volumes decreased from $140 billion on 11th November to $30 billion on 19th November. Since 20th November, the indicator has risen slightly to $60 – $70 billion.

The market sentiment remained in the “Extreme Fear” zone. Since 11th November, the Cryptocurrency Fear & Greed Index has returned to 20-24 points, where it stood in September-October 2022. The market is very chaotic due to FTX-related bankruptcies. The Cryptocurrency Fear & Greed Index stood at about 20-24 points primarily due to interest rate increases by the world’s Central Banks. The peak of increases will occur in the first quarter of 2023, and investors are simply waiting for an opportunity to balance their portfolios.

Bitcoin’s dominance dropped to 39.70%, but then increased by 3.12% and currently stands at 41%, according to TradingView. The reason behind such an increase is that large BTC holders rallied other investors to convert their altcoins into Bitcoin, since there is a high probability that altcoins will be under selling pressure in the coming months. According to CoinMarketCap, the share of ether has decreased to 17.25%, approaching the levels seen at the end of September.

The volatility of cryptocurrencies has increased greatly since 11th November. The 30-day BTC volatility index was 4.62%, up 1%. The same level was observed in early July 2022. The same indicator for ETH stood at 6.66%. The last time the index rose to such levels was at the end of June 2022. Greater volatility is caused mainly by liquidation risks and news events.
