Two bad crypto events were not enough to plummet the market even further down.
Welcome to One Button Capital’s newsletter.
Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies fell on Monday as investor sentiment toward risky assets remained negative following the release of the US jobs report on Friday. With key inflation data on the horizon, cryptocurrency investors should brace themselves for more volatility in the coming days.
At the time of writing, Bitcoin is trading at $19,192, or -2.02% from 7 days ago. Ethereum, on the other hand, lost -1.36%. Overall, the market is down by -0.99% with XPR being the only significant winner in the top 10 list at +11.70%. The market cap remains under $960B.
Binance Blockchain Suffers $570M Hack
Hackers stole $570M in tokens from Binance, the world’s largest cryptocurrency exchange. The hack targeted the BSC Token Hub, which serves as a link between two Binance systems.
The stolen assets have been steadily frozen by Binance’s security team and other crypto network operators. A Binance spokesperson said Friday afternoon that there was approximately $100M in unrecovered funds.
According to Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao, the hack took advantage of a flaw that resulted in the creation of extra BNB tokens on the network. The company has requested that the validators who secure the system on the affected network pause their work.
Bankrupt Crypto Lender Celsius Leaked Users’ Data
Crypto lender Celsius has revealed the names and transaction history of hundreds of thousands of its customers in a court filing. The 14,500-page long document contained information such as customer names, crypto wallet IDs, transaction types and amounts, and which services the customer had used.
The data leak received widespread condemnation on social media.
Mastercard Pushes Deeper Into Crypto With New Tool for Combating Fraud

The new Crypto Secure service will assist banks in assessing the risks associated with crypto merchants on their network. CipherTrace, a blockchain security startup acquired by Mastercard last year, will power the product.

Despite the recent poor market conditions and bearish news, crypto has continued its consolidation period. This supports some analysts’ belief that cryptocurrencies have bottomed and a potential Q4 uphill is on its way.
At the time of writing, OB Capital’s bots have 41.67% allocated in crypto, an increase since the beginning of the month but still not decisive enough for a bull market. We will see what October has to bring in the next few weeks, and how the bots will react.
In the meantime, you can come and meet our team this week (Oct 10–14) at Gitex Global, in the Dubai World Trade Centre. More info at https://www.gitex.com/
