What Turns Crypto Market Red?

The crypto market is struggling as a result of the Federal Reserve's aggressive stance. Despite the continuing prospect of a recession, the Fed looks to be proceeding in lockstep with its quantitative tightening.

After the release of the unemployment data, it seems that the Fed's hawkish stance will continue to stay. It highlights that the economy and labor market are too robust for the Fed to shift to monetary easing.

Major Events Around the World

  • The Luna Foundation Guard, a Terra ecosystem fund, has said that it cannot specify a schedule for distributing assets to customers following the de-pegging of stablecoin TerraUSD from the dollar. In a Twitter thread on Oct 7, LFG highlighted ongoing and impending litigation as one of the reasons it is unable to disperse its remaining assets to UST customers. 

  • Cryptocurrency exchange Huobi Global announced on Saturday that its founder, Leon Li, has sold his entire controlling stake to About Capital Management of Hong Kong. However, the cryptocurrency exchange acknowledged that there was no impact on Huobi's core functioning or business management personnel.

  • The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) announced that it will shortly begin the pilot launch of its e-rupee.

COINGABBAR VIEWS: The broader crypto market is bleeding badly because of global macroeconomic circumstances. As back-to-back data shows rising inflation, the Fed will wait for CPI data next week before deciding on the next interest rate hike on November 1st.
