3. Truefi - $TRU: +87%

Price as of time of writing: TRU/USD - $0,118498

TrueFi is a blockchain-based lending platform that offers collateral-free loans and uses TUSD stablecoin.

TUSD is used as the primary collateral for loans on the platform, which are secured by overcollateralization to reduce the risk of default. Borrowers on the platform are required to deposit TUSD as collateral to receive loans, and lenders earn interest on their TUSD deposits. Additionally, TUSD is used as a means of payment for fees and incentives on the TrueFi platform.

TUSD's market cap has surged to $1.1B after being issued by Binance.

Recent FUD around BUSD and Paxos - the issuer of BUSD - has led to a shift towards TUSD. This caused $TRU price to soar and gaining popularity.

Price as of time of writing: RLY/USD - $0,02105695

Rally Network is an on-chain app ecosystem that enables users to create social tokens.

The Consumer Confidence Index refers to how confident people are about the future of their household financing from spending to saving based on their current situation.

◉ The index has trended down for the second month in a row. The most recent reading was 102.9, which is lower than the 106.0 reading from January.

Another metric that shows the market movement is the Gauge of Factory Employment, which looks at how many people are working in manufacturing factories.

◉ This number went down to 49.1 from 50.6, which means that fewer people are working in factories.

The Prices Paid Index, which goes in line with CPI (Consumer Price Index), reflects the cost of materials, labor, and other inputs that businesses need to produce their goods and services. It is typically expressed as a percentage change from the previous period, and a higher index value indicates that prices have increased.

◉ The index went up to 51.3 from 44.5. This means that it costs more for companies to make things.

◉ 10-year Treasury yield went up by 7 basis points to 4.066%.

◉ 2-year Treasury yield went up to 4.889%. This is the highest it's been since July 2007.

The narrative of the macro picture this week is as simple as this: Manufacturers are finding ways to cut costs amidst the rising tide of production expenses. This may have led to the decision of laying off laborers, which then resulted in them tightening their belts for fear of a financially unstable future.




1. BTC Dips Nearly 5% On Friday

Twitter - March 03, 2023 at 5:20 AM UTC

Last week, Bitcoin experienced a dip, and while the exact reason for it is unknown, there are several possible factors to consider, such as:

◉ The anticipation of Mt. Gox creditors receiving their first Bitcoin settlements for the disastrous crypto exploit in 2014 may have led to a panic sell-off.

◉ The review of Silvergate Capital (a crypto bank)'s exposure to a bankrupt company is raising concerns since their payments network is widely used in the crypto industry, and some exchanges and trading desks have stopped using Silvergate.

Silvergate Capital primarily sources USD deposits from institutional investors such as cryptocurrency exchanges, hedge funds, and venture capital firms.

These institutional investors use Silvergate's banking services to fund their trading and investment activities in the cryptocurrency market. If the bankrupt company mentioned above is one of them, the market could be under a negative influence.

Additionally, Silvergate Capital's payment processing platform, SEN, is used by various cryptocurrency exchanges to facilitate USD transfers between customers and the exchanges.

◉ The crypto industry is facing challenges as US regulators tighten rules and interest rates are expected to rise to combat inflation.

◉ The SEC has tightened its regulations on crypto exchanges and continues to crack down on the industry, warning of severe consequences for any lapses.
