Morning Coinheads.

Overnight the value of Bitcoin – itself a fascinating ‘fin-existen-cial’ concept – slipped quietly to its lowest ebb in four months – circa US$39,800 – deteriorating in the face of looming rate rises and as the 10-year US Treasury yield continued its nefarious 2022 spiky bent.

After slipping below the key $US40k mark, prices bounced slightly and a short time ago BTC was trading above US$41,000. But it looks like volatility might be on the way.

These new year wobbles across global crypto markets largely follow the same uncertain approach to equities trading – the wholesale sacrifice of momentum stocks in favour of cyclical and value names.

So is BTC’s market dominance done?

And far more importantly, what to make of  the SUSHI surge? Is the native token of the automated market maker SushiSwap, too much to swallow?

It’s Tuesday morning in Sydney, we’d better get you all caught up:

Following a Christmas 100% surge to over $10, SUSHI, the native token of the automated market maker SushiSwap, has fallen back towards its pre-festive lows of $6.71. After a turbulent 2021 and as new AMMs emerge, the key question is what is the future of SushiSwap in 2022?


Bitcoin cash price prediction: is the altcoin a dip buy?

Bitcoin cash continues to lose value, including another 4% on 10 January, totalling a 51% drop since its spike in November. At the time of writing it held a market capitalisation of $6.77bn on a price of $357. With bitcoin’s influence waning, is this an opportunity for BCH?
