Monthly Market Recap - June 2023

Monthly Market Recap - June 2023

This report aims to provide the reader with a quick overview of the blockchain economic categories influencing recent market performance, gain insights into institutional investors' capital allocation in digital assets, and understand how crypto is affected by the broader market landscape.

Key takeaways for the month:

  • Markets are showing renewed optimism in response to several premier asset managers pursuing spot Bitcoin ETF approvals. This has triggered an aggressive upward retracement in the price of Bitcoin, allowing it to break out of its downward channel and surpass the $30,000 threshold. This positive price momentum has also benefited other major cryptocurrencies, with Ether climbing back above the $1,900 mark.
  • Bitcoin dominance has allowed the CF Ultra Cap 5 Index to maintain its relative strength over the rest of our flagship indices, rising over 6.7% for the month.
  • The prospect of a U.S. spot Bitcoin ETF has profoundly impacted fund flows, causing Bitcoin fund inflows to soar to levels last seen in May 2022. In addition, open interest for BTC futures has surged by over 60%, reaching a record level of nearly 19K contracts. This marks the largest relative monthly increase since October 2021.
