The Market
The month of February has been marked by a highly volatile market, with much more sideways trends compared to what was seen in January. This can be attributed to both macroeconomic factors and ongoing crypto-related events.

It’s fascinating to see how news and rumors regarding the legal status of cryptocurrencies in different countries can have a significant impact on the market. The potential legalization of crypto trading in Hong Kong could attract a lot of investors from the east and further fuel the growth of the crypto market. This recent announcement has provided a boost to the crypto market, helping it to recover from a minor correction observed in the previous week. 

After falling to a low of $21.5k, Bitcoin rebounded and reached around $25k, but it corrected once again. This correction was mainly due to the rising fear of a more hawkish approach from the Federal Reserve in the coming period. At present, Bitcoin is trading at 23.5k levels. Assuming the current upward trend persists and Bitcoin surpasses the $25k level, there is a chance that it could reach $28k. However, it’s worth noting that the $25k level has been invalidated on five consecutive occasions, which could indicate the potential for a more significant correction. Furthermore, the Bitcoin Dominance index has stabilized, and numerous altcoins have recently achieved new highs for the year.

The emergence of new narratives in the crypto market is also a noteworthy development. The adoption of layer 2 scaling solutions like zkRollup on Ethereum could potentially improve transaction speeds and reduce costs, which could have a positive impact on the adoption of Ethereum-based projects. The recent developments in China have given rise to a new narrative in the crypto market, with a focus on “China coins” such as CFX, DOT, FIL, and PHB. Moreover, the introduction of the Ordinals Protocol, which enables the creation of Bitcoin NFTs, has also contributed to the rise of layer 2 Bitcoin solutions such as STX and RIF.

Our Strategies

The standout performer this month is Pennywell – our Green Crypto Selection, which employs a strategy of trading in high market capitalization coins (top 100 market cap coins). In the past 30 days, Pennywell’s performance has exceeded 8%, buoyed by recent successes with coins such as SKL, FIL, NEAR, and VET, whereas Bitcoin has seen a 4.3% increase. On the other hand, Hereford – Bitcoin Protection, which trades solely in Bitcoin, is currently underperforming. The team is currently evaluating and making modifications to some of the bots powering the Hereford strategy to enhance its overall performance in the future.
