Binance Backs out of FTX Rescue

On Wednesday, Binance announced that it would no longer be acquiring FTX, leaving Sam Bankman-Crypto Fried’s empire in jeopardy. 

Binance said in a tweet on Wednesday,

“In the beginning, our hope was to be able to support FTX’s customers to provide liquidity, but the issues are beyond our control or ability to help.”

The turnaround comes after Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao stated the previous day that the largest cryptocurrency exchange had reached a non-binding agreement to purchase FTX’s non-US businesses for an unknown value, saving the company from a liquidity problem. 

Private investors put FTX’s value at $32 billion earlier this year. 

The crypto market suffered significant losses as a result of this revelation. Between Monday and Tuesday, FTT lost 80% of its value, plummeting to $5 and wiping out over $2 billion.

On Wednesday, it dropped by over half to around $2.30, reducing the value of all tokens in circulation to about $308 million.

Bitcoin Price 

The current Bitcoin price is $16,015 and the 24-hour trading volume is $100 billion. Bitcoin lost over 12% during the Asian session and over 20% in the last seven days. CoinMarketCap currently ranks it first, with a live market cap of $314 billion, down from $351 billion yesterday.

On the technical front, Bitcoin has broken through a triple bottom support level of $18,244; closing candles below this level may lead to a drop to $16,000.

On the daily timeframe, Bitcoin has also formed a “three black crows” pattern, indicating the likelihood of a downtrend continuation. As a result of increased selling pressure, Bitcoin’s price could fall to $14,500.

As leading technical indicators like the RSI and MACD have entered the oversold zone, closing candles above $16,000 may signal the start of a bullish correction. On the plus side, the immediate resistance level for Bitcoin remains at $18,244.

Ethereum Price 

On Thursday, the second most valuable cryptocurrency, Ethereum, fell roughly 14% in the previous 24 hours and over 25% in the last seven days to trade at $1,118. On CoinMarketCap, it is now ranked second, with a live market capitalization of $142 billion, down from $159 billion yesterday.

On the daily chart, Ethereum has broken through a symmetrical triangle pattern that had been supporting ETH near $1,227. A bearish engulfing candle closing outside of a symmetrical triangle pattern confirms a bearish breakout and may lead ETH to the $1,000 or $810 support zone.

The 50-day moving average at $1,400 also indicates the possibility of a continuation of the selling trend. The ETH/USD pair may encounter significant resistance on its way to $1,400 at the $1,227 level.

The RSI and MACD are also oversold, and ETH may bounce back to retest the $1,300 level before dropping further in the market.
