The current market sentiment in crypto remains split between those who fear we are in a “bull trap” and those who think we have already bottomed up.

Leading on-chain specialists also jumped in with advanced data analysis.

Glassnode reported that the recent surge in the price of BTC, reaching the $21k to $23k range, has involved reclaiming multiple on-chain pricing models with a historically signified change in behavior patterns among holders.

Additionally, Glassnode’s analysts found that the duration of the current bear market is similar to that of the 2018–2019 bear market, suggesting an equivalency in the level of pain experienced during the “darkest phases of both bear markets.”

Yet, nothing is still decisive, so paying attention to these and other on-chain trends is critical for knowing where we are in the current cycle.

Market update

At the time of writing, the global crypto market cap sits at $1.08T, with BTC leading the way at $23,033 (+9.74% from 7 days ago). The largest gainer in the leading digital assets remains SOL, with a +148.49% gain since the start of the year, while DOT gained +15.84% last week.

US Government Sends Message On Crypto Crime With Enforcement Action

The US Department of Justice announced on Jan 18, 2023 that it would be holding a live press conference to announce an “International Cryptocurrency Enforcement Action.”

That caused short panic in the crypto, with BTC and ETH falling 5% in just a few minutes.

However, the press conference revealed that the target of the enforcement action was Hong Kong-based, Russian-owned crypto exchange, Bitzlato, accused of processing more than $700M in illicit funds, including millions in proceeds from ransomware.

While the crypto community laughed, the U.S. government wanted to make it crystal clear that it is aware of crypto crimes and is taking decisive action, especially in the aftermath of the collapse of FTX.

Final word

While the crypto community debates whether we are at the market’s bottom or in a bull trap, in the US, Democrats are pushing to remove the debt ceiling, allowing unlimited government borrowing. The US government hit the $31.381T debt ceiling last week…

In the meantime, Web3 keeps growing and building solutions to combat the flawed TradFi systems. The TVL in DeFi is up by over $9Bn since the start of the year, and even the most giant bears are slowly turning bullish with each day.
