Crypto Report | Jun 2024

Key Takeaways

Last month, cryptoassets outperformed traditional assets like equities and bonds as Bitcoin recovered from oversold levels and improving news flow also helped.

More specifically, ETC Group Physical Bitcoin (BTCE) returned 9.98% and ETC Group Physical Ethereum (ZETH) returned 24.95% last month.

A look at our product performances reveals that secondary altcoin ETPs such as ETC Group Physical Cardano (RDAN), or ETC Group Physical Litecoin (ELTC), generally underperformed ETC Group Physical Bitcoin (BTCE) in April as Bitcoin’s market cap dominance continued to increase – and there was no broad-based altcoin outperformance despite the fact that both the ETC Group Physical Ethereum (ZETH) and ETC Group Physical Solana (ESOL) outperformed.

From the macro side, the liquidity tide is indeed turning but markets are already painting a pretty benign growth picture. Risks are to the downside given ongoing Chinese monetary policy tightening and increasing risks of a US recession. Yield curve steepening itself would imply turnaround in monetary policy which is only likely amid a US recession itself.

Positive effects from the Halving will probably become visible from August 2024 onwards when macro factors could become less relevant for the performance of Bitcoin.
