Bitcoin Steady Above $57K Amid Fed Testimony

Bitcoin held steady above $57K as Fed Chair Powell testified to Congress, while Citi analysts predicted eight weeks of Fed rate cuts starting in September. Crypto markets rallied with Bitcoin ETFs seeing the highest inflows since June 6 while Bitcoin sentiment hit a 12-month low, according to Santiment. 

A $1B Bitcoin dump by the German govt was followed by a $305M buyback, with further $362M selloffs ongoing. Poor liquidity on exchanges spurred Bitcoin Cash sell-offs amid Mt. Gox creditor liquidations. Despite all the headwinds, CryptoQuant analysts forecast a Bitcoin bull run to begin in Q3 2024.

Ethereum Reclaims $3K with ETH ETF Launch Hopes

Ethereum (ETH) has reclaimed the $3,000 mark with the anticipated ETH ETF launch. Industry optimism is high for imminent SEC approval of a spot Ethereum ETF by July 18, with major asset managers updating their S-1 filings. The approval could drive demand and liquidity, positively impacting the market. Invesco and Galaxy have announced a 0.25% fee for their ETF, positioning competitively. Additionally, a significant ETH whale transaction of $34.35 million to Coinbase suggests potential market impacts amidst recent volatility, despite Ethereum's current stability above $3,000.
