Welcome,

After ending a rather shaky month for crypto, we look forward to September being even more volatile. The Ethereum’s Merge is in just 10 days, and the market is bound to react within that timeline as well.

In today’s letter, I am going to take you through the most important news from last week, and the AI performance of our trading strategies. If you’ve missed my email about the August 2022 OB Capital Report, here is a link to the piece.

Market update

At the time of writing, Bitcoin is trading at $19,860 and is down -2.10% from 7 days ago. Ethereum on the other hand is gaining some ground at above $1,600 and is at a +3.17% profit.

This time, the biggest winner in the top 10 cryptos is Cardano with +9.24%, while BNB is at lost the most at -3.08%. The total market cap is above $1T, with an average ROI of +0.73%.

Crypto.com Mistakenly Sent a Customer $10M Instead of a $100 Refund

Crypto.com is reeling from a costly error after accidentally refunding an Australian woman $10.5 million AUD (~$7.2 million USD) rather than $100 AUD (~$68 USD).

The lady had already put the money into a $1.3 million AUD (~$890,526 USD) luxurious, five-bedroom home for her sister.

The exchange is now suing her for the funds’ return. As noted by The Guardian, Crypto.com successfully put a freeze on Manivel’s account in February.

Bankrupt Crypto Lender Celsius Seeks to Reopen Withdrawals for Specific Customers

According to court documents, Celsius intends to release approximately $50M in funds to selected customers. The debtors’ motion seeks to reopen withdrawals for certain customers with regard to assets held in the custody program, granting withholding relief.

Celsius declared bankruptcy on July 13, a month after halting all withdrawals from accounts.

MicroStrategy’s Michael Saylor Faces a Tax Fraud Lawsuit

High-profile Michael Saylor, a proponent of Bitcoin, is being sued for tax evasion.

The District of Columbia’s attorney general filed a lawsuit against Saylor, alleging that he illegally avoided $25M in taxes by posing as a resident of other states, specifically Florida, which has no personal income tax.

Saylor’s company, MicroStrategy, was also named as a defendant in the lawsuit for allegedly conspiring to assist Saylor.

Final word

We are closing in on one of the most critical events for crypto. Will the markets respond graciously to the “Merge” or get hit with yet another significant price drop is still debatable.

Our AI’s track record against ETH is one of the best in the OBC portfolio, so we are definitely looking forward to seeing how it will respond this time. Remember that the bots rely solely on price data, so this is a big opportunity for the strategies to shine.
