Crypto Market Daily Highlights – XRP Led the Top Ten on NASDAQ Support


Key Insights:

  • It was a mixed Tuesday session for the crypto top ten, with BNB seeing red to buck the top ten trend while XRP led the way.
  • Contagion fear continued to ease on Tuesday, despite reports of another exchange freezing withdrawals in the wake of the FTX collapse.
  • The crypto market cap rose by $9.7 billion to end the day at 802.8 billion.

It was a mixed Tuesday session for the crypto top ten. XRP led the way, while BNB bucked the trend, falling by a modest 0.68%. BTC rose for the third session in ten. Notably, BTC ended the day at sub-$17,000 for the fifth time since 2020.

Investor sentiment toward the collapse of FTX pegged the broader crypto market from a breakout session. Following news of BlockFi freezing withdrawals, crypto exchange Liquid announced the freezing of withdrawals.

On Tuesday, Liquid made a statement on Twitter, saying,

“Fiat and crypto withdrawals have been suspended on Liquid Global in compliance with the requirements of voluntary Chapter 11 proceedings in the United States. Until further notice, we would suggest to not deposit either FIAT or crypto. We will provide updates when available.”

However, the news of the latest platform to freeze withdrawals had a muted impact on the crypto market. Hopes of the Binance recovery fund supporting projects impacted by the FTX collapse muted the impact of the news.

Looking beyond the crypto market, the NASDAQ Composite Index gained 1.45% on Tuesday, delivering crypto support. US wholesale inflation provided support to riskier assets.

The US annual inflation rate softened from 8.4% to 8.0% in October. Economists forecast a rate of 8.3%.

Tuesday’s figures further fueled bets of a December Fed pivot. This morning the probability of a 75-basis point December Fed rate hike stood at 14.6%, according to the FedWatch Tool.
