While the global crypto market is rallying towards a $1.1 trillion cap following Grayscale’s SEC win, FLEX, HEX, and others report substantial losses.
The global crypto market took a U-turn since the announcement of Grayscale’s win against the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) on Aug. 29. Despite the bullish market momentum, some crypto assets have still registered notable declines over the past 30 days.
