    Daily News | Crypto Mostly Flat Weekend Despite A Recovering Global Macro Outlook

    14 November 11:55




    Fundamental & Technical Outlook:


    Macro

    Good morning, today is Monday, Nov. 14, 2022.


    TL;DR

    🔹 BTC & Ether’s correlations with US Dollar Index (DXY) are positive and rising, at the same time, inversely correlated with global equities, particularly the DAX and Nasdaq. This means crypto follows the dollar’s movement for now.

    🔹 Investors look to Monday’s G20 meeting to gauge the outlook of China and the US while awaiting Tuesday’s reports: Japan’s Q3 GDP, UK Unemployment, US PPI.

    🔹 Beijing relaxes Covid-zero for property markets, FTX filed for bankruptcy, Wall Street whales turn bearish, CZ pushes for crypto self-custody.

    🔹 The topic of the Day: FTX hacked via backdoor, Gate.io returned in full of Crypto.com’s transfer, CEO Han Lin tweeted to clarify PoR snapshot date.

    🔹 Happenings of the Week: Musk fires 80% of Twitter staff, SBF declares bankruptcy, BitCoke suspends withdrawal, CZ tweets he’ll be more transparent.

    💰 . . .


    Bitcoin (BTC) 24-Hour Change: 16,052 (-4.84%)

    Ether (ETH) 24-Hour Change: 1,183 (-6.48%)

    On Monday, cryptocurrencies remained under pressure amid concerns about withdrawal from FTX despite a shift in tone on the macro front after last week’s CPI reading showed inflation is slowing in the US economy.

    • Asian equities advanced with support from the biggest rally seen in US equities since June. Beijing unveiled an extensive 16-point rescue marketplac2304kage for the struggling real estate market, just days after announcing 20 measures to guide officials as it eases its contentious Covid-Zero policy.

    • Institutional investors are souring on cryptocurrencies. The losses are too great and the market structure is too risky, they say. The FTX collapse is “raising questions on the viability of the crypto ecosystem,” said Salman Ahmed, chief investment strategist at Fidelity International, which oversees $646 billion from London.

    • Crypto.com said it was supposed to move 320,000 in Ether to a new cold storage address but the funds were sent instead to a whitelisted external exchange address. Gate.io founder and CEO Lin Han tweeted Gate’s proof of reserves audit was based on a snapshot taken two days before Crypto.com’s accidental deposit, clearing the rumors surrounding Crypto.com’s mistaken transfer.

    📌 Today's topic: FTX hacked via backdoor, Gate.io returned Crypto.com’s transfer


    The shockwaves set off by the FTX incident are rippling throughout the market and have left people feeling unsettled this weekend.

    On November 12, crypto security expert (@officer_cia) tweeted that multiple pkeys on the FTX side have been leaked and are suspected to have been hacked, and multiple project communities have warned users that the FTX App may currently have the potential to leak private keys and other important information.

    Lookonchain data shows that the address marked as the "FTX attack hacker" is exchanging its assets for unfrozen DAI and ETH. The address has now received $189 million worth of ETH and DAI. blacklisted by Tether.

    According to another Reuters report, at least $1 billion in customer funds have disappeared from FTX. Sources close to the matter said SBF had secretly transferred $10 billion of client funds from FTX to Alameda Research. One source said he estimated the unaccounted-for amount to be around $1.7 billion, while another said it was between $1 billion and $2 billion. An investigation by FTX's legal and financial teams found that SBF implemented a so-called "backdoor" into FTX's accounting system, which was built using custom software.

    The hack of FTX is still fermenting, as another Twitter user (@jconorgrogan) posted that the crypto platform Crypto.com related address had transferred about 285,000 ETH to the trading platform Gate address in October, and then Crypto.com CEO Kris said it was a mistake, and after negotiations between the two sides, Gate.io said the full amount was returned on October 28th.

    As early as October 19, Gate.io and the US auditing firm Armanino completed the 100% margin certification, so the previous rumors were not true.

    Gate.io, as the first trading platform in the world to commit to providing 100% margin, works closely with Armanino LLP, a well-known U.S. auditing firm, to provide professional and credible asset verification services with open source, openness, transparency, blockchain signature and Merkle tree. Gate.io has now completed its second 100% margin audit, and users can view the results of this Gate.io asset audit in Armanino's official website.
