📢 One Click Crypto Announces $100,000 $OBT Buyback Program
The crypto market continued growing last week, and Bitcoin is headed toward a historic January performance. BTC needs to gain another 5% by the end of the month to beat its best-ever start from 2013 when the asset grew by +44.95% to around 20 US Dollars.
Another unbeaten statistic from 2013 is starting the year with four consecutive green months. For context, if BTC leaps by another 40–45% in Feb, Mar, and Apr, the crypto’s price would sit at about $63–73k before May — showing the power of compounding.
How likely is it to happen? I will let you decide.
At the time of writing, the total market cap of crypto is sitting at $1.07T, according to Messari. Bitcoin is trading at $23,124, while Ethereum is slightly down from its $1,600 support.
Among the top gainers in the leaderboard is Polygon at +11.98% ROI week-on-week, while Shiba Inu has made its place in the top 14.
Bitcoin Mining Difficulty Hits New All-Time High With 4.7% Rise
The difficulty of mining Bitcoin has hit a new all-time high, rising 4.68% from 37.59 EH/s to 39.35 EH/s, as per recent data. The mining difficulty, which determines the computational power required to mine a single Bitcoin, is adjusted every two weeks, making it more challenging as more miners join the network.
Meanwhile, the hash rate, a measure of the computational power dedicated to Bitcoin mining, stands at 305.81 EH/s, still below its all-time high of 348.7 EH/s on January 6, 2023.
Cardano-Based Overcollateralized Stablecoin Djed to Launch This Week
Cardano-based decentralized stablecoin Djed is set to launch next week, according to a statement made on Medium. The new stablecoin, developed jointly by Cardano code maintainer IOG and blockchain provider Coti, will be overcollateralized and backed by other tokens to ensure stability in volatile markets.
On launch, Djed will be available on over 40 Cardano-based DeFi applications.
