Sygnum House View
The crypto market rose cautiously at the beginning of September, on the hopes of lower inflation figures and Ethereum driving outperformance again in the run up to the Merge upgrade. The disappointing US CPI mid-month led to a drop of over 10 percent, exacerbated by negative news about Ethereum’s centralisation after the Merge. Ether proceeded to underperform, ending the month down by 14.5 percent.

Bitcoin fell by 3.1 percent for the month and the S&P Broad Crypto Market Index dropped by 6.5 percent.
