Macroeconomics and financial markets
In the crypto asset (virtual currency) market, Bitcoin fell 0.52% from the previous day to $21,079.
Contrary to most expectations, the price remained high at the $21,000 level, with the price rising toward 5:00 on the 17th Japan time.
Some altcoin stocks, which surged due to the recent overheating, fell back due to strong selling, but according to data from CoinMarketCap, the total market capitalization of the cryptocurrency market remains close to $1 trillion ($986 billion). are doing.
On the 16th, CNBC cited “the prospect of monetary policy easing against the backdrop of weak macroeconomic data and low valuations” as the reason for the rise in bitcoin since the beginning of the year. It is reported that the desire to buy is increasing. It covers the views of analysts and others based on data from the cryptocurrency analysis site Kaiko.
According to Kaiko, the average trading volume within the largest exchange Binance has surged from $700 to $1,100 since the 8th.

The recent rebound in the Bitcoin and altcoin markets is correlated with the rebound in the US stock index as expectations of a slowdown in inflation in the US Consumer Price Index (CPI) were positively received as expectations of a slowdown in the pace of US interest rate hikes.
A World Economic Forum survey found that about two-thirds of chief economists expect a global recession is likely this year, with economic trends putting inflation first. It also affects the monetary policy decisions of the Fed (US Federal Reserve System).
The US Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) is approaching the week after next, and it is possible that the market will again take a wait-and-see approach from late January to early February.
On the other hand, according to the analysis of Mr. MAC_D, a certified analyst of the data analysis company CryptoQuant, institutional investors’ buying is limited in the rebound phase up to 1 BTC = $ 21,000 level. This suggests that the rise was due to buybacks mainly by individual investors. Due to the bankruptcies of FTX and Alameda Research, etc., “market uncertainty” has increased to an unprecedented level, so it seems that there is no choice but to be more cautious than major companies.
The reason for this is the sluggishness of two indices, the Fund Volume, which indicates the trading volume of institutional investors, and the Fund Holdings, which indicates the amount of holdings. Also, no signals were detected in OTC (counter-to-counter) trading data that is not done through a cryptocurrency exchange. This is provided as regulated fund (institution) disclosure data, not on-chain data.
Among individual stocks, Aptos (APT) rose 67.2% from the previous week and rose 100% from the previous month.
Aptos is an L1 blockchain with a focus on security and scalability, and is also known to have been founded by former developers of Diem (formerly Libra), which was developed by Meta (formerly Facebook).
It uses the blockchain programming language “Move”, which is superior to Ethereum’s “Solidity” in terms of security and scalability, and its mainnet was launched in October 2010.
Relation:What is “Aptos” developed by former Meta engineers?
The development company Aptos Labs was once valued at $4 billion, and has raised a total of over ¥45 billion from major industry investment institutions such as Binance and a16z.
In April 2022, we also announced a partnership with Google Cloud, and in December 2022, Mo Shaikh, co-founder of Aptos, launched DeFi (decentralized finance) that enables parallel transaction processing in 2023. It also mentioned and attracted interest.
In PancakeSwap, a major DEX (distributed exchange) based on BNB Chain, the Total Value Locked (TVL) on the Aptos blockchain reached just under 60%.
TVL is data that shows the total amount deposited into the DeFi protocol. On the 6th, PancakeSwap voted to continue multi-chain development in Aptos, and it seems that the announcement of additional invitations for competitive Aptos-based projects to be deployed on PancakeSwap was also taken into consideration.
