Alt Coins Perform In A Red Market, Inflation Concerns Push Prices Lower

The market is moving. Bitcoin has stabilised slightly around the $47,000 mark following a multi day bear rally. Since printing ATH at $69,000 (Glad to see that crypto traders have a sense of humour) on the 10th of November BTC has dropped to $41,967 and has now stabilised above $45,000. That is a drop of 39.18% in just under a month! Bitcoin now holds itself at 69.3% of its all time high value.

What Is Next For BTC?

Bitcoin is currently holding support above the 200 day moving average. The 50, 100, and 200 day moving averages all are holding in a bullish cross currently, another bullish indication.

BadgerDAO $130M Hack

In early December a front end exploit of BadgerDAO resulted in a $130 million drain of locked funds.

According to BadgerDAO’s founder Chris Spadafora, the restitution plan will depend upon the contribution of Badger’s 32,000 users. The losses are significantly larger (about 2.4x) than Badger’s treasury of roughly $53M.

This may be the largest and most complex restitution plan in decentralised autonomous organisation (DAO) history.
