(as of 10:30 AM Singapore Time, August 28, 2023)
Over the recent weekend, the crypto market witnessed a surprising lull in Bitcoin activity, with the coin’s velocity diving to a three-year low. On the one hand, it suggests that large holders, often called “whales,” are firmly holding onto their stakes. On the other hand, it could also imply a concerning stagnation, with new investors seemingly sidelined. Meanwhile, JPMorgan analysts hint at the potential end of Bitcoin’s downtrend, basing their optimism on the waning open interest in futures contracts.
The crypto arena is no longer the domain of just individual enthusiasts and traders. Corporations are boldly marking their territories. Case in point: OnlyFans’ parent company, Fenix International, has delved deep into Ethereum, though not without its share of bruises owing to Ethereum’s price volatility. And they’re not alone. Industry titans like MicroStrategy, SpaceX, and Tesla have been transparent about their crypto dalliances, underlining the increasing institutional gravitation towards this nascent asset class. However, as seen with Tesla and MicroStrategy, the volatility of cryptocurrencies remains a double-edged sword, promising both soaring gains and sobering losses.
Away from the spotlight hogged by cryptocurrencies, an intriguing development is unfolding in Hong Kong. The Hong Kong Monetary Authority (HKMA) is pioneering the future of bonds through blockchain. Their recent venture, Project Evergreen, spotlights the manifold operational enhancements blockchain-based bonds can usher in. By leveraging distributed ledger technology (DLT), HKMA aims to obliterate the inefficiencies plaguing traditional bond issuance. This initiative sings praises of tokenization, emphasizing its capability to revolutionize financial systems. However, this digital renaissance is in its early stages and must navigate a labyrinth of technological, legal, and interoperability challenges.
