Market Uptrend: Altcoins and Bitcoin Rally


The broader cryptocurrency market is experiencing significant gains, with bitcoin (BTC) reaching a two-week high of $71,000 before stabilizing in the low $70,000s. This uptick accompanies notable increases in altcoins such as Uniswap’s $UNI, which soared over 20% following a teaser of upcoming news by Uniswap Labs.


Starknet’s $STRK also jumped by more than 10% after announcements about scaling the Bitcoin network. Additionally, the BNB Smart Chain token surged 7%, pushing its market capitalization beyond $100 billion, fueled by increased activity on Binance’s launchpool and launchpad platforms.


Economic Signals and Bitcoin’s Outlook


Amidst these gains, fresh U.S. manufacturing data indicating a potential economic slowdown has investors anticipating possible interest rate cuts by the Federal Reserve, which could further stimulate the market.


Cryptocurrency hedge fund QCP suggests that upcoming non-farm payroll (NFP) data could significantly influence Federal Reserve policies, hinting at a continued bullish momentum for cryptocurrencies.


Spotlight on Ethereum and Crypto Miners


Ethereum (ETH) reported a modest gain of 0.3%, underperforming compared to bitcoin’s 1.5% rise. Prospects for Ethereum look promising with forecasts of $4 billion in inflows from upcoming U.S. spot ETH ETFs.


In parallel, U.S.-listed bitcoin miners like Core Scientific are seeing remarkable gains, with Core Scientific up 40% after a strategic AI hosting deal with CoreWeave, which also proposed an acquisition offer.


Emerging Political Tokens on Kraken


Kraken has officially listed the PoliFi tokens $BODEN and $TREMP, marking the first time these politically themed meme coins are available to U.S. residents on a major exchange. Following the listing, $BODEN’s value increased by over 10%, while $TREMP saw a 5% rise.


These tokens, embodying caricatures of political figures, signify an evolving trend of blending politics with cryptocurrency, offering a new medium for political expression among traders.
