Weekly Crypto market insight 14th

Last week was one of the worst in the crypto industry’s history.
There’s no need to sugarcoat it. Let’s face the truth. It’s been a shocking week for the whole industry that will have a lasting impact.
Compared to 3AC and Luna Terra crashes this year, FTX had much more brand awareness, social proof, and credibility. SBF was put on the covers of Fortune and Forbes. The management running FTX and Alameda had stellar track records, founders with MIT, Stanford, Jane Street, Google etc. backgrounds.

They had everyone wrapped around their finger, from the most prominent players in the crypto industry to TradFi, celebrities, such as Tom Brady, Giselle Bundchen, Shark Tank Mr. Wonderful, FTX Arena, and, sadly, retail.

What started off as a questionable balance sheet that got into the hands of journalists, quickly turned into a possible buyout by Binance, as well as other industry players.. until it all collapsed into a bankruptcy, and culminated in likely insider money withdrawals and a hack..
SBF went from being the darling and celebrated icon of crypto to the complete opposite.
In the light of these events, many exchanges started publishing and pointing attention to their proof of reserves, a well-received new standard in the industry.
Whilst we wish the story would end here, the second order consequences due to contagion/parties affected by FTX are yet to be seen among the industry players.
