This week the cryptocurrencies market took another dip and was marked by juicy headlines. As interest rates in USA hiked a again, people reacted accordingly. In addition, FTX CEO Sam Bankman-Fried finally got caught in the Bahamas. And since, questions have risen about Binance proof of funds. The exchange continues to juggle a wave of withdraws, while showcasing a strong front to the media. 

The environment is very delicate right now. The market Experienced a positive recovery last week with Bitcoin prices going above 18K. But it eventually took another dip driven by low volume in general in exchanges. 

On a positive note, while exchanges are getting shaken, there was a large increase in sales for hardware wallets across the board. Trezor, for example, recorded a 300% sales increase in November 2022. And that is mainly being driven by people seeking security and self custody. 

Regardless of what happens to exchanges; Bitcoin, cryptocurrencies, and true decentralization will prevail.
