Introducing Kalkine’s ‘Crypto Report’
Kalkine presents the ‘Crypto Report’ to explore the blockchain technology space. The reduction in bond yields amid inflationary pressures and proliferation of blockchain technology in varied industries ushered market players to seek a highly risky crypto asset class which may have the potential to yield positive returns.
Cryptocurrencies use blockchain technology to record every transaction and are termed as digital currencies. Bitcoin is considered as the gateway asset into crypto that boasts the largest market capitalization reaching ~USD 456.30 billion (Source: Trading View as on 09 August 2022), the highest among all the cryptocurrencies, followed by Ethereum, Tether, Binance Coin, and Cardano.
Blockchain technology assumed greater significance for tracking and tracing products, payments, and remittances, identity management, benefiting a spectrum of industries from healthcare, government, and public services to manufacturing, finance, logistics, and retailing.
Kalkine’s ‘Crypto Report’ provides a technical analysis-driven research report on cryptoassets traded on global exchanges. Investments in cryptoassets can be high risk and volatile. You should seek appropriate advice and consider your objectives and risk appetite before making any decision in relation to such products. This report is released after considering the volatile trading dynamics and market timings on a weekly basis.
Governments, regulators, and companies are looking closely at bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. The world’s one of the largest asset manager, BlackRock, opened two of its funds to the possibility of investing in bitcoin futures. The Bank of England has been exploring the possibility of its own central bank-backed digital currencies. This has been dubbed as “Britcoin”. Other central banks like the Federal Reserve have been doing the same.
S&P has launched three benchmarking indices to gauge the performance of stocks with exposure in bitcoin and cryptocurrency assets. These are - S&P Bitcoin Index, S&P Ethereum Index, and S&P Cryptocurrency Mega Cap Index.
With growing acceptance of blockchain technology and regulatory supervision, the S&P Crypto Currency Broad Market Index delivered gains of 39.84% since June 30, 2022 (till August 08, 2022) as compared to S&P 500 Index returns of 9.37% (Source: REFINITIV).
