June Recap: WTF Happened to Crypto?

The crypto market saw a lot of red during the month of June and while we expected June to be a slow month, it turned out worse than we have forecasted. There were a few significant and key events that took place during the month which contributed to the drop in the market.

Key Factors Affecting Crypto in June:

  1. Interest Rates: The U.S. Federal Reserve did not lower interest rates in June which the market had been anticipating, contributing to a further decline in the market.
  2. Mt. Gox: The now-defunct crypto exchange moved its repayment date for creditors to July 2024, which will result in the release 142,000 BTC (around $9 billion) into the market for the next four months.
  3. Governments Selling BTC: The U.S. government sold 3,940 BTC ($240 million) of their BTC seized from Silk Road. As well, the German government sold $3 billion worth of Bitcoin in June. It should be noted that the U.S. government is one of the largest holders of Bitcoin, with an estimated holding of 5,515 BTC, valued at approximately $5.66 billion.

Outlook for July & August:

We are predicting a slight recovery during the month of July but no significant increase until late September. The repayment of the $9 Billion of Mt. Gox. funds and government offloading of Bitcoin we believe will continue to put downward pressure on the market.

I believe the summer months will continue to be slow with the markets moving sideways until early September, when historically we see new higher-highers in the month leading up to December. Also, with the upcoming US elections around the corner, if crypto becomes a topic of debate, we could see new interest in the crypto markets.

Meme Coins are Trending in 2024 |

We love to hate and hate to love meme coins. These projects are frowned upon by most serious investors because they don't have any intrinsic value however, meme coins are responsible for more crypto millionaires than any other sector in the crypto market.

Monthly Altcoin Pick |

June & July Altcoin Pick

We apologize to our subscribers as we did not publish an altcoin pick for the month of June. As much as we would like to consistently publish monthly altcoin picks, the timing of our picks needs to be coordinated with the market.

Throughout the month of June, we consistently saw indicators we have yet to hit the bottom of this cycle. I am anticipating the market to continue to move sideways until at least late August.

I don't think we have seen the bottom of this cycle yet but will release the next Altcoin Pick as soon as we do. Until then, we are holding off until the market presents more favorable conditions.
