Xangle’s Take on the Market This Week

  • The crypto market enjoyed another strong week off the back of growing expectations for the Fed’s pause.
  • The top gainers were NFT (+15%) and games/metaverse (+13%) sectors, getting a jolt from a spike in Axie Infinity (+38%) amid mounting expectations for its new builders program.
  • Aptos ripped more than 128% higher without much noticeable momentum, landing 2nd place in the top gainers’ list. The recent upside across the crypto space is considered to have boosted investor confidence, luring speculative demand from mostly retail investors.
