Crypto continues to suffer as more companies get into trouble, and regulations are breathing down the neck of leading institutions.
Experts predict that the volatility will go up tomorrow, after the US investors are back from their Independence Day break.
Here is the current state of the market, and what we can expect during July.
Bitcoin (BTC) is currently trading at $19,698, really challenging the psychological level of $20,000. The average 7D change of the top 10 crypto assets is -5.68%.
The biggest loser in the list is Solana with a drop of -10.80%. Close at second place is XRP with a loss of -8.57%. Despite its troubles, Tether remains stable around $1.00.
More Hedge Funds Are Betting Against Tether as Crypto Melts Down
Professional investors got interested in shorting tether after the collapse of another stablecoin, TerraUSD. Paolo Ardoino, CTO of Tether, confirmed rumors that hedge funds have launched a coordinated attack against the Tether stablecoin.
Genesis Global Trading also disclosed that hedge fund clients have utilized its services to execute short trades on Tether worth hundreds of millions of dollars. However, the stablecoin is still tightly pegged to the dollar.

The landmark law is designed to make life tougher for numerous players in the crypto market, including exchanges and issuers of so-called stablecoins, tokens that are meant to be pegged to existing assets like the U.S. dollar.
Transfers between exchanges and so-called “un-hosted wallets” owned by individuals will need to be reported if the amount tops the 1,000-euro threshold, a contentious issue for crypto enthusiasts who often trade digital currencies for privacy reasons.
Grayscale Sues SEC After Rejection of Bid to Turn the Largest Bitcoin Fund Into an ETF
Grayscale, which manages the largest bitcoin fund in the world, announced that it would sue the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission after regulators denied its request to convert the investment vehicle into an ETF.
The SEC denied Grayscale’s application for a spot bitcoin exchange-traded fund, citing the investment manager’s failure to address market manipulation concerns.
