    BTCNEXT Exchange Update #7

    Two weeks have passed by quickly. Work on improving the BTCNEXT Exchange continues and we are now busy preparing something global for BTCNEXT Broker. Nevertheless, there were plenty of significant events and an upcoming live-stream event to look forward to. Find out all the details right here and now.

    Financial markets

    The main player in the financial markets was oil. As a result of last week, the price of a WTI oil barrel fell to $18.30. For the first time in history, oil prices reached into the negative on several exchanges. The price of WTI crude oil futures expiring in April reached -40 dollars on Thursday, April 23rd.

    During this period of ultra-low demand for oil and overfilled storages, traders were ready to pay extra for the purchase of expiring contracts, so as not to receive physical delivery of the oil and thus not needing to pay for its storage. Oil prices remain under great pressure and most analysts predict a further decline.

    The price of gold continues to rise. The price rose to $1,725 per troy ounce last week. This is the highest level in seven years. The reason for this is the pandemic, which triggered an unprecedented wave of incentives from governments and central banks. The price of gold will continue to move up because of the upcoming meetings to be held by the Fed, the ECB and the Bank of Japan, continuing to fuel this fire.

    Key indices continue to strengthen, i.e. the S&P 500 is showing +8% per week and is trading at around $2,900.

    Crypto market

    The market grew by 15% over the past week. Bitcoin managed to gain a foothold above the mark of $7,500 and Ethereum is approaching $200. All currencies on our exchange also showed good growth, the leaders being XLM and ADA at +40%. ZEC showed the smallest growth with an increase of only 5%.

    BNX grew by 15%, QDAO added 45% paired with the dollar. NOAHP followed the general market growth, also increasing in price by 10%.

    The crypto market continues to recover after the collapse of March. Less than a month is left before the Bitcoin halving. The next target for the main cryptocurrency will be a corridor of $8,000-8,200. The trend will continue if we manage to gain a foothold in this gap. The possibility of a pull-back below $7,000 is still preserved.
