…In record numbers on recent currency devaluations. Last week, the cryptocurrency market continued its sideways march and did not record any major price changes.
Welcome to One Button Capital’s newsletter.
Last week, the cryptocurrency market continued its sideways march and did not record any major price changes. On the other hand, the news surrounding the industry remained heated as we saw 3 key figures step down from their CEO roles and an alarming rate of investors selling their Euros and Pounds for Bitcoin (BTC).
At the time of writing, Bitcoin is trading at $19,345, or +0.68% from 7 days ago. Ethereum, on the other hand, lost -1.26%. Overall, the market is down by -4.80% with BNB being the only winner at +3.66% for the leading digital assets. The market cap remains under $1T.
Investors Are Selling Euros and Pounds For Bitcoin At a Rapid Rate
According to Messari data, investors are selling the Euro and British Pound for Bitcoin in record numbers. Thomas Dunleavy, a senior research analyst at the company, tweeted:
“If your currency was rapidly depreciating what would you buy to protect your purchasing power? The answer for Euro and Pound holders has overwhelmingly been #Bitcoin”
The data is noteworthy because we did not observe the same pattern in previous crises in 2020 or 2021. Other major cryptocurrencies, such as Ether, have not yet seen the same trend.

Hedge Fund Legend Predicts a Crypto Renaissance
Stanley Druckenmiller, an American investor, and hedge fund manager who was part of George Soros’ legendary $10B bet against the British pound in the 90s gave a positive prediction for the cryptocurrency market at the Delivering Alpha Investor Summit.
According to him, the U.S economy is headed for a “hard landing”, and the loss of trust in central banks around the world could lead to crypto having a renaissance as an alternative financial tool.

October is here, and we are looking forward to a better month than SeptemBear. History has shown that the cryptocurrency market performs the best in the Q4 portion of the year on average and analysts are giving bullish signals this time as well.
The ongoing economic crisis has also demonstrated the true potential of decentralized currencies and the recent dumping of Euros and Pounds in favor of Bitcoin is an example of that. With the loose US dollar, it won’t be a surprise if something similar happens with it as well.
