Crypto at a glance
The cryptocurrency markets are broadly down this morning, as the majority experience pullback after recent strong performances. A total of $150 billion in value was wiped off the total value of the cryptocurrency market over the last 24 hours, though it’s still holding at over $2 trillion.
After breaking above $50,000 earlier this week for the first time since May, Bitcoin has now fallen back to around $48,000 as of time of writing – down more than three per cent over the past 24 hours but still up seven per cent over the past week.
It’s a similar story across the board, with alt coins experiencing even greater retraces. Ethereum is down around five per cent to $31,150, while Cardano and Dogecoin have seen even greater declines of around 8/9%. Will they recover before the weekend?
In the news, Deloitte’s recent blockchain report has found that the majority of financial professionals expect digital assets to replace government-issued currencies within a decade. In the survey, 76% said Bitcoin and crypto could serve as an alternative to or replacement for fiat currencies in the next five to 10 years. Will they be proved right?

Convince your Nan: Soundbite of the day
“Crypto’s not a fad. There are elements of this, certainly, that feel a little speculative and bubbly… but if we zoom out and look at the secular 10-, 20-year trend… we view crypto as a fundamental enabling component of this new digital world.”
– Meltem Demirors, Influencer
