The cryptocurrency market is off to a much better start this year than most had expected. According to a report released by Bank of America on Friday, the token universe is up 42% year to date to $1.1 trillion.
The bank predicts that 2023 will be the year of token price divergence, with tokens that provide utility and a call on cash flows outperforming meme and governance tokens.
Bank of America strategists caution that strong economic data has delayed the timing of a recession, but also “indicates the potential for reflation and additional rate hikes.” This could lead to pressure on growth and digital assets in the long term.
Shorting is a way of betting that a price will decline. An investor borrows a security and sells it in the hope that the price will drop. They then repurchase the security and return it to the lender. Mean reversion is a theory used in finance that suggests that asset prices tend to revert to their long-term average level.
