Key Insights:

  • It was a bearish Monday session for the crypto top ten. Binance coin (BNB) led the way down for a second consecutive session.
  • Risk aversion stemming from China protests sent the crypto market into the red, with news of BlockFi filing for bankruptcy adding to the negative sentiment.
  • The crypto market cap fell by $13.6 billion to end the day at $776.2 billion.

It was a bearish Monday session for the crypto top ten. BNB led the way down for a second day. Despite the bearish sentiment, BTC avoided sub-$16,000 for a sixth consecutive session.

Trading volumes rose on Monday as investors returned from the US Thanksgiving holidays. However, there was no post holiday cheer to support the crypto market, with news of protests across China weighing on investor appetite.

The NASDAQ Composite Index ended the day with a 1.58% loss.

News of BlockFi filing for bankruptcy added to the bearish mood. While attributing the bankruptcy filing to the demise of FTX, BlockFi stated,

“BlockFi has $256.9 million in cash on hand, which is expected to provide sufficient liquidity to support certain operations during the restructuring process.”

However, the Company did note that while the Company will focus on recovering all obligations owed, there will be delays in recoveries from FTX.

For the day ahead, US economic indicators, Fed chatter, and the NASDAQ Index will continue to provide direction. Investors will also need to monitor the crypto news for further updates on FTX-related news, including the BlockFi bankruptcy filing.
