Biggest Crypto Gainers Today on DEXTools – POFI, HarryPotterObamaPacMan8Inu, ZKLAB
Blue chip cryptocurrency markets are slightly in the red on Tuesday, but for the most part are holding up pretty well within recent ranges, despite longer-dated US yields pushing to new multi-decade highs.
Bitcoin (BTC) was last changing hands in the low $26,000s, whilst Ether (ETH) was trading just to the south of $1,600, both below their 21-day Moving Averages, a warning sign for the near-term price outlook.
Both are at risk of further losses however as yields push higher and the US dollar remains strong thanks to bets that the US Federal Reserve will hold interest rates at higher levels for longer thanks to the outperforming US economy.
Upcoming risk events like another speech from Fed Chair Jerome Powell on Thursday and US Core PCE inflation data on Friday are the main potential sources of volatility this week.

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 up-start 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.
