Today’s Cryptocurrency Headline
The TON Foundation has set up a “rescue fund,” committing $126 million to support projects experiencing liquidity problems due to the FTX fallout. Unlike Binance’s $2 billion recovery fund, the goal of the TON Rescue Fund is not to buy distressed assets, but to attract projects to migrate to TON. The fund is backed by DWF Labs, Darley Technologies, Hexa Capital and TONcoin Fund Ecosystem Partners. The TON blockchain was developed by messaging app Telegram but was dropped after being sued by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) in August 2020. The developers of the ecosystem then formed the TON Foundation to keep the project alive.
BingX’s Bitcoin Chart
According to CNBC, Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell confirmed Wednesday that smaller interest rate increases are likely ahead and could start in December. Bitcoin is up 0.27% over the last 24 hours and rose to an intraday high of $17,245.88. The largest cryptocurrency rose above $17,000 price level after Jerome Powell’s comment on the interest rate. The U.S. Labor Department will publish nonfarm payrolls report on Dec. 2 and the U.S. Consumer Price Index data on Dec. 13. If those economic data are better-than-expected, the Fed is likely to change their hawkish interest rate policy during the next FOMC meeting. And this could be the first pivot moment for the crypto winter.
