It was a bearish Sunday session for the crypto top ten. Polygon (MATIC) and dogecoin (DOGE) led the way down. Notably, BTC fell short of $17,000 for the fourth consecutive day while avoiding sub-$16,000.
Contagion risk stemming from the collapse of FTX resurfaced on Sunday. Several events led to the break from two range-bound sessions.
Over the weekend, Grayscale announced it would not share proof-of-reserves, citing BTC security risk. The announcement came as other platforms try to restore investor confidence by disclosing proof-of-reserves.
Adding to the market angst was further FTX news. On Sunday, the BBC reported that FTX owes its biggest creditors $3.1 billion. According to the report,
“FTX owes its 50 largest creditors almost $3.1 billion according to a court filing.”
The report added that FTX owes its top ten creditors $1.45 billion, raising concerns over the impact of lost funds on the unnamed creditors and their ability to continue doing business.
The latest pullback will likely see the crypto market decouple from the NASDAQ Composite Index. This morning, the NASDAQ mini was down 5 points. However, hawkish Fed chatter could add to the negative crypto investor sentiment.
