Read more about how you can take advantage of a crypto bear market in our latest blog.

Let’s take a look at some of the past week’s major events.

  • Ethereum’s migration to proof-of-stake is progressing steadily as over 10 million Ether, equivalent to approximately $26 billion has been staked on the blockchain since November 4 last year.

Could a correction be in store?

Interest in inflation and FED rate hike are currently the two main narratives in the digital asset industry this week as investors are expecting increased volatility when the decision is announced.

The FED previously announced that citizens should expect a rate hike in March. When the announcement was made, crypto prices and equities markets also suffered a correction.

The Bitcoin Illiquid Supply Shock Ratio has increased significantly, suggesting that investors have not been spending much of their BTC.

The current illiquid supply of Bitcoin is 3.2 times larger than the liquid supply and the highly liquid supply combined.

The crypto market appears to be giving mixed signals on the upcoming trends, therefore it is essential to have stop-losses set in place as increased volatility could be on the horizon.

With the new Sell Full Trade feature, CoinPanel traders can now take advantage and profit from when the market moves up AND when the market moves down.
