Crypto bulls catch a break, but where do the markets go from here?

CRYPTO markets seem to have levelled following the recent sell-off, with Bitcoin trading just above $61,600 this morning. Ethereum is trading sideways just shy of $3,400, with other cryptos such as Solana and Cardano starting another day in the positive. Maker added a further 5.8% to its price overnight.

Market indicators reflect an easing in the slump. The Fear and Greed Index has shifted up a few notches, now sitting more firmly in Neutral, while Bitcoin trading volume is down more than 30% over the past 24 hours.

The steep sell-off on Monday started shortly after Mount Gox, the defunct exchange, announced it would start redistributing crypto to customers - who lost their funds in a 2014 hack that crippled the exchange - in the first week of July. Many analysts believe that these investors will hold their Bitcoin, given that they could have cashed out through bankruptcy claims in the decade since the collapse.
