Record-breaking funding rounds, companies buying stakes in other organizations, and more.
Today we will talk about record-breaking funding rounds, companies buying stakes in other organizations, and some other significant news that happened over the past week in crypto.
But first, let us take a look at the market summary.
Despite setting another record red candlestick in a row, Bitcoin recovers at the beginning of the week. The asset currently sits at $30,598, with a market dominance of 46.19%.
The average 7-day ROI of the crypto market is +2.53%, with BTC being the biggest winner among the top 10 crypto assets with a +5.18% gain. Solana on the other hand loses -6.66%.
Tether, USDC, and BUSD, which are the top 3 stablecoins keep their market caps almost untouched compared to last week. Their peg remains stable.
On May 25, 2022, Andreessen Horowitz (a16z) announced that it had successfully raised its fourth crypto fund. At $4.5B, this is the largest private crypto venture round to date.
The firm has been investing in cryptocurrency projects since 2013, and they currently manage over $7.6B in digital assets. Their main plan for using that capital is to invest in Web3 startups like those in the DeFi and dApps space.
Rapidly expanding cryptocurrency exchange FTX is prepared to spend billions to acquire stakes in other companies, according to its CEO Sam Bankman-Fried. The company already has a significant stake in IEX Group Inc., and they also recently announced they acquired a 7.6% stakeholding in Robinhood Markets Inc.
JPMorgan, a global investment bank, published a favorable note on cryptocurrencies. The bank’s strategists wrote that the past month’s crypto market correction appears more like capitulation, and they anticipate an upward trend for Bitcoin and crypto markets in general.
In addition to hedge funds, the company has declared cryptocurrency to be its preferred alternative asset class instead of real estate.

Experts predict that the global crypto owners count can hit 1 billion by the end of 2022.
To support the industry’s rapid growth, big institutions are raising capital that they then reinvest into Web3 startups and DeFi projects.
Some companies even insure themselves by acquiring stakes in other firms, thus increasing the stability of their portfolio. We wait to see how these moves will affect the crypto market over the following months and if the big players were correct with their bullish actions.
