Ethereum developers activated the Dencun hard fork in the Goerli testnet

The Ethereum core team has deployed the Dencun update (Cancun-Deneb) to the Goerli testnet. However, it was not possible to complete the hard fork as planned.
The upgrade was implemented by EIP-4844. It includes the Proto-Danksharding option, designed to scale the network by creating a new type of transaction for large arrays of binary data. It is expected that this will reduce commissions for L2-based Rollups technology.
It was not possible to complete the full deployment of the upgrade, presumably due to the fact that approximately one-fifth of the client operators did not update the software (there were several of them).

Donald Trump has promised to ban the creation of CBDCs

The American politician Donald Trump said that he will prohibit the creation of a central bank digital currency (CBDC) if he is re-elected as the president of the United States.

"To protect Americans from government tyranny, as your President, I will never allow the creation of a central bank digital currency.
This would be a dangerous threat to freedom, and I will stop it from coming to America. Such a currency would give a federal government absolute control over your money. They could take your money, and you wouldn’t even know it was gone.”
Trump said.

Note that many US politicians share a similar opinion with the former president of the country.

TUSD lost its peg to USD

On January 15, the stablecoin TrueUSD (TUSD) lost its peg to the US dollar, falling by 1.3% to $0.984.
The loss of the peg occurred against the background of a significant volume of sales of TUSD on the Binance crypto exchange.
According to CoinGecko, the capitalization of the asset is $1.9 billion with a daily trading volume of $585 million.
On January 10, there were reports that TUSD was having trouble verifying its reserves in real-time, sparking community concerns about undersupply.

Bitcoin outperformed silver

Spot bitcoin ETFs outperformed silver-based exchange-traded funds by assets under management (AUM), according to ETF Database.
The US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) approved investment crypto funds on January 10, 2024. During the first day, the volume of trading on the spot bitcoin ETF amounted to about $4.5 billion.
It took the new investment product a week to overtake silver by AUM to become the second-largest commodity ETF in the US.
As of January 18, 2024, spot bitcoin ETFs have 647,651 BTC (about $27 billion) at their disposal, according to CC15Capital. At the same time, the Grayscale Bitcoin Trust ETF accounts for 619,000 BTC (about $25.6 billion).
​Silver-based funds are in third place by AUM and have about $11.5 billion in their account, which is distributed among five ETFs. Gold-based investment products ranked first in terms of assets under management. They account for $96.3 billion, distributed among 19 funds.

Get Free Market Making

Our investment strategy involves providing deep liquidity crypto market making to the projects we invest in. This approach allows us to ensure continuous and substantial liquidity in exchanges. By doing so, we aim to increase market efficiency and reduce price volatility. We help to stabilize prices and reduce the bid-ask spread, which can lower transaction costs for traders. This usually attracts more traders to the markets, by making it easier and less risky to trade your token which can help to increase the overall liquidity and trading volumes both for the benefit of traders and issuers. However, we recognize that providing liquidity also comes with potential risks, which we carefully evaluate and manage as part of our investment decision-making process.
