• AltSignals token has raised over $1 million as it nears its target.

  • Bitcoin has held quite steady above $30,000 even as risks in the industry rise.

Bitcoin price has held steady above the $30k level as the recent momentum wanes. It was trading at the important level of $30,230 on Tuesday, a few points below the year-to-date high of $31,413. Still, it remains about 21% above the lowest level in June and 95% above its 2022 low. At the same time, the first stage of the AltSignals token sale is running out.

Bitcoin is outperforming stocks

Bitcoin and many altcoins is outperforming American stocks and other assets this year even as regulatory risks continue. The coin has jumped by more than 80% in 2023, bringing its total market cap to over $587 billion.

Other financial assets have risen at a slower pace than crypto. For example, while gold price soared to an all-time high this year, it has only jumped by less than 10% this year. American indices like the Nasdaq 100 and S&P 500 have risen by about 15% and 35%, respectively.

Bitcoin has done well in a show of resilience considering that the crypto industry has gone through hell in the past few months. In May last year, Terra and its ecosystem crashed, leading to the collapse of other companies like Voyager Digital, Three Arrows, and Celsius. 

In November, the industry experienced the collapse of FTX, a leading exchange that was valued at over $30 billion. Crypto investors lost over $8 billion following the collapse, as we wrote here.

And this year, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) decided to sue Coinbase and Binance, the two biggest players in the industry. The SEC made several allegations, including accusations that the two were offering unregulated products to American customers.

Therefore, the performance of Bitcoin is a reflection that cryptocurrencies are extremely resilient. In fact, Jerome Powell, the head of the Federal Reserve believes that Bitcoin has a lot of staying power.

AltSignals token sale continues

This resilience explains why several companies have managed to raise millions of dollars this year. Earlier this year, Metacade raised over $16 million from investors. Its developers are building a gaming platform that will compete with the likes of Decentraland and Sandbox.

AltSignals has raised over $1 million its highly successful token sale. As you can see here, the developers have sold 95.23% of all the available ASI tokens. They have raised over $1.028 million in the first stage of the sale. Each token is going for $0.015 and the developers will boost it by 25% in the next stage of the sale.

For starters, AltSignals is a company that hopes to use artificial intelligence to disrupt the financial services industry. The developers aim to improve its service by incorporating AI in its existing platform which is already profitable platform.

After the first phase, the developers will launch the second phase of the token sale. According to its white paper the developers will then get to work ahead of the new AI platform launch. They will also list the token in key centralized and decentralized exchanges.
