The last seven days were the days of the halving for BTC: the market obviously waited for the event and was hugely conditioned by it. Investors hoping for an acceleration of the uptrend going on for weeks were, however, disappointed. Small projects overperformed the field once again but were just marginally positive, with Mid-cap lagging and Top projects falling behind.

Finally, we got there. Today was the day of the much anticipated Bitcoin halving event, which caught the attention of all investors for weeks. The event will happen around 19.30 UTC . In a classical “buy the rumor, sell the news” fashion, BTC price actually crashed over the weekend losing circa 20% of its value. It then recovered and BTC was able to finish the week with a marginal gain, but still far from the relative high.

The Platform sector keeps rolling and bested the field also in the past seven days. However, the week was again very positive overall, with tokens and Bitcoin also in very good shape. A trend is starting to emerge, which is BTC convincingly overperforming its peers in the aggregate Currency sector. The main reason behind this trend could be the incoming BTC halving. Still, all the sectors experienced a positive week and there is no structural need to worry about currencies.
