Weekly Recap: Trump Embraces Crypto, NFT Market Dips, ETF Inflows Surge

This week’s recap highlights significant developments in the cryptocurrency space, including Donald Trump’s endorsement of crypto, a dip in the NFT market, and a surge in ETF inflows.

Trump’s Crypto Support: Donald Trump, the GOP’s 2024 presidential candidate, surprised many by openly declaring support for the cryptocurrency industry. He urged supporters to donate digital assets to his campaign, signaling a shift in his stance towards crypto.

Regulatory Landscape: Regulatory developments around the world continued to impact the crypto market. The Philippines announced plans for comprehensive crypto regulations, while Binance faced regulatory issues in Canada and Nigeria. Richard Teng, Binance’s CEO, accused the Nigerian government of demanding bribes, although the government denied these claims.

Ripple and Kraken: Ripple and Kraken, two prominent crypto firms, were also in the spotlight. The U.S. House Financial Services Committee considered voting on the FIT21 Act to clarify the digital asset industry. Meanwhile, Ripple faced arguments from the SEC in the ongoing lawsuit, and Kraken sought to dismiss the SEC’s lawsuit against it.

NFT Market Dip: The NFT market experienced a dip in volume, with cumulative weekly volume decreasing by 11.16% to $144.3 million. Despite Magic Eden surpassing Blur in trade volume, the broader NFT market saw a decline, influenced by factors such as crypto-focused hacks.

ETF Inflows Surge: On a positive note, the spot crypto ETF market witnessed a resurgence of inflows. All spot Bitcoin ETF products in the U.S. saw positive net inflows for the first time on May 3, with Grayscale Bitcoin Trust recording its first-ever net inflow of $63 million. Wells Fargo’s investment in Grayscale and ProShares’ ETF products also underscored institutional adoption.

These developments underscore the dynamic nature of the cryptocurrency landscape, influenced by regulatory changes, market trends, and political endorsements. As the industry continues to evolve, stakeholders navigate through both challenges and opportunities in this rapidly changing environment.
