Sturdy Bitcoin

Despite a broader 7% drop in the cryptomarket triggered by the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) rate decision, Bitcoin has demonstrated resilience by maintaining its value around $57,000. Interestingly, the crypto behemoth, despite experiencing a significant 8% fall – slipping beneath the notable $60,000 threshold – continues to showcase stability amidst market fluxes.

Impressively, amid this turbulence, BlackRock’s BUIDL has emerged as the largest tokenized treasury fund. It currently outshines Franklin Templeton by holding a whopping $375 million. Similarly, tech behemoth MicroStrategy remains unshaken with its sizeable Bitcoin stash, holding roughly an equivalent of 1% of Bitcoin’s total circulating supply, valued around $13.6 billion.

In contrary news, crypto-focused venture capitalist firm, Paradigm, suffered a setback as its special counsel took an exit. However, tokenized asset provider Backed successfully raised $9.5 million amidst growing enthusiasm for real-world assets in the cryptocurrency community.

Highlighting this shift are platforms like Ethereum, instrumental in introducing the exhaustive possibilities of decentralized finance (DeFi).
