Biggest Crypto Gainers Today on DEXTools – MINEP, TIP, JOE
As it became obvious that the reports were fake news, the entire rally almost entirely reversed, although Bitcoin was last still trading higher by more than 5% in the last 24 hours in the mid-$28,000s, as per CoinGecko.
While the SEC hasn’t yet approved a spot Bitcoin ETF, market participants remain highly optimistic that approvals are coming in the months ahead in wake of the SEC’s decision not to appeal a legal loss it sustained in a lawsuit with Grayscale last week.
Back in August, a judge ruled that the SEC unfairly rejected Grayscale’s application to transform its Bitcoin Trust (GBTC) into a spot Bitcoin ETF, which would have a more favorable issuance/redemption mechanism for investors.
Optimism that Grayscale will soon be able to transform GBTC into a spot ETF has seen the GBTC discount to the spot value of Bitcoin shrink to its lowest level of the year thus far of under 16% as of Monday, as per ycharts.com.
That’s up from a discount of nearly 50% in late 2022.
The shrinking of this discount is a sign that market participants are increasingly betting that spot Bitcoin ETFs are coming soon, helping explain the broader market’s optimism.
If Bitcoin can hold to the north of the $28,500 level on Monday, this could possibly open the door to a swift run higher back to $30,000 and perhaps back toward yearly highs in the upper-$31,800s.
Other major cryptocurrencies were also trading with a positive bias on Monday, with Ether (ETH) up 2%, XRP (XRP) up 1.5%, Solana (SOL) up 8.5% and Cardano (ADA) up 2% in the last 24 hours, as per CoinGecko.
While it has certainly been an exciting start to the week for crypto markets, most major currencies are still trading within recent ranges, so traders will continue to turn to the highly illiquid shitcoin/meme coin market for better upside possibilities.
Here are some of the top-performing low-cap shitcoins as per DEXTools.

Crypto Alternatives to Consider
Shitcoins are very risky, given most have no real value proposition.
For those looking for an even better probability of near-term gains, an alternative high-risk, high-reward investment strategy to consider is getting involved in crypto presales.
This is where investors buy the tokens of upstart crypto projects to help fund their development.
These tokens are nearly always sold cheaply, and there is a long history of presales delivering huge exponential gains to early investors.
Many of these projects have fantastic teams behind them and a great vision to deliver a revolutionary crypto application/platform.
If an investor can identify such projects, the risk/reward of their presale investment is very good.
The team at Cryptonews spends a lot of time combing through presale projects to help investors out.
Here is a list of 15 of what the project deems as the best crypto presales of 2023.
