FOMO rises again in the cryptocurrency market, as the Fear & Greed Index of Bitcoin jumps by 80% from 25 to 45 points on the Alternative.me tracker.

While the traditional markets saw a boost from the news that the US inflation fell to the lowest level in more than a year (6.5%), digital assets surged in volatility during the weekend.

Furthermore, BlackRock’s vice chairman forecasts that US inflation will drop sharply to 4% before stabilizing, while news from Europe shows that the inflation there is already dropping at a quicker rate (in December).

Market update

At the time of writing, the crypto market is sitting at $1.01T Mcap, according to Messari, with Solana being the largest gainer in the last 7 days among the top coins with +44.51% ROI.

While SOL is also the leader on YTD gain at +137.20%, Cardano (ADA) has also regained a significant amount of its price at +42.52% ROI. Bitcoin currently sits at $21.273.

Latest news:

Bitcoin’s Best Start Since Before Pandemic. Was It Driven By Whales?

Bitcoin’s January rally is the best since the 2020’s 31% rise before the pandemic. The surge helped the total crypto market cap surpass $1T, a level that was lost in November 2022 when the FTX exchange collapsed.

According to researcher Kaiko on Twitter, “whales” could be the main drivers of BTC’s rally.

Since Jan 8, Binance’s Bitcoin-US dollar trade sizes have increased to $1,100 from $700.

Binance and Huobi Team Up to Recover $2.5M From Harmony One Hackers

Binance and Huobi security teams collaborated to freeze and recover 121 Bitcoin from hackers behind the Harmony bridge exploit.

Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao announced in a tweet that the hackers attempted to launder their funds through the Huobi exchange. When Binance discovered this, they contacted Huobi and assisted them in freezing and recovering the hackers’ assets.

In the same week, a Wormhole hacker started dumping his SOL for USDC, later bridging it to the ERC-20 network and buying ETH with it.

Polygon To Undergo a Hard Fork On Jan 17. MATIC Holders Shouldn’t Do Anything.

Polygon Labs announced that they would conduct a network hard fork on Jan 17, 2023.

Polygon employs a proof-of-stake algorithm and has significantly lower gas costs than Ethereum’s mainnet. Polygon token MATIC will not require any action, but all Polygon node operators must upgrade their nodes by Jan 17 to prepare for the hard fork.

The software upgrade is set to address gas spikes and chain reorganization (reorgs).

Final word

The recent rally brought some life back to the market, and crypto Twitter loved it (1,2,3).

Will the uptrend continue further? Is this the start of a big 2023 bull market? These are questions in everyone’s head that are impossible to answer, but the temporary macro environment looks good as of most recent news.

The FED’s FOMC meeting on Feb 1 is the next critical date to look for.

Enjoy the relief and stay mindful not to FOMO everything. There will be plenty of opportunities on the uphill toward previous ATHs and beyond, so there is no rush.
