Key Observations


Crypto market to expect volatility as GBTC dumps

The crypto market is anticipated to witness volatility, with Grayscale dumping Bitcoin. The ETF approval rally has now passed and reports indicate that GBTC holders are offloading billions worth of BTC from Grayscale’s ETF. The ongoing sell pressure from GBTC suggests that this trend is set to continue, contributing to uncertainty in the market.

Investors have managed to offload more than $2 billion worth of the Grayscale Bitcoin Trust GBTC since it was converted into an ETF earlier this month.FTX was then revealed to have sold 22 million shares worth close to $1 billion.

Analysts and investors are expected to monitor the market for upcoming trends and pattern after anticipating a volatile period.

FTT making a comeback?

The FTX debacle has witnessed major price corrections in recent history. The Grayscale sell-pressure has been believed to be FTX paying back creditors by dumping their BTC holdings since the ETF approval came along. FTX along with Celsius is injecting crypto holdings into exchanges with the intent to sell. This overall crypto market has seen a downtrend in the past week. However, the native token of FTT has witnessed a 260% surge in the 24-hour trade volume while the price has seen a 2% jump in the last 24 hours.

This comes after SBF’s parents moved to dismiss the lawsuit against Sam. Bankman and Fried, both professors at Stanford Law School, argued that Bankman did not have a fiduciary relationship with FTX and did not serve as a director, officer, or manager.

VeChain announces new integration
