📢 Weekly TL;DR

Every Monday, we cover the latest developments and trends in the dynamic and ever-evolving world of cryptocurrency. From price movements, industry news and our favorite resources, we strive to provide our readers with a comprehensive overview of the crypto landscape.

Dear NDAXers—just as Bitcoin was kicking off ’24 with a bang.

  • Bitcoin started off 2024 with price levels unseen in almost 2 years... 
  • While Bitcoin recovered, stocks struggled on US Jobs Data. 

Bitcoin faced an 8% decline on Wednesday amid concerns about the approval of a spot Bitcoin ETF, erasing the significant gains from January 1. This triggered the liquidation of $500 million in derivative positions.

While Bitcoin rebounded, recovering from its 8% dip earlier in the week, the Nasdaq Composite faced its fifth consecutive day of losses, down 2.3% for the year, and the S&P 500 traded sideways, losing 0.8%. Analysts attribute this to uncertainty about the Federal Reserve's optimism over the prospect for rate cuts in 2024, and Bitcoin’s concurrent resilience over optimism regarding the approval timeline for a bitcoin exchange-traded fund. The Dow Jones Industrial Average fared slightly better, gaining 0.3%. The hesitation from the Fed, reflected in December's minutes, and concerns about job market dynamics have dampened market sentiment... Meanwhile, ETF speculation remains a significant factor (to say the least) in Bitcoin's movement. Blockworks
