Glassnode: An in-depth interpretation of the true impact of halving and ETFs on Bitcoin

Current market conditions differ from historical norms. As the Bitcoin halving approaches, the impact of newly mined Bitcoins being put into circulation is becoming smaller and smaller compared to surging demand for ETFs. The amount of Bitcoin that the ETF removes from the market is multiple times the number of Bitcoins that are minted every day. The supply crunch typically expected from a halving may occur due to massive Bitcoin acquisitions by ETFs. These funds currently exert significant influence over Bitcoin’s availability, which may obscure the halving’s impact on the market in the short to medium term.Weekly Editors Picks (0323-0329)Therefore, keeping a close eye on ETF activity, including purchases and potential sales, is critical to predicting market movements as the halving approaches.

Historical patterns suggest that as the peak of the distribution of long-term holders approaches, the market may tend to balance and possibly peak. Currently, the trend in LTH market inflation rates shows that we are in the early stages of the distribution cycle, which is approximately 30% complete. This suggests there will be plenty of activity in the current cycle before reaching a market equilibrium point and potential price top from a supply and demand perspective.

The direct impact of the halving on the market will be influenced by psychological factors and the dynamics of institutional participation. Traders should prepare for possible volatility during the halving.

Despite breaking out of the previous ATH before the halving, the bull run may still last longer.

The airdrop trilemma: How to balance capital efficiency, decentralization and retention?

Stop doing one-off airdrops, youre shooting yourself in the foot. Deploy incentives like A/B testing. Iterate heavily and use past experiences to guide future goals.

Having standards built on past airdrops will increase your efficiency. In effect, more tokens are given to people who hold them in the same wallet. Make it clear to users that they should stick with one wallet and only change wallets when absolutely necessary.

Get better data to ensure smarter and higher quality airdrop segmentation. Bad data = bad results. The lower the “predictability” of the criteria, the better the retention results.

A comprehensive interpretation of 10,000 words on the Meme track: How to become a golden dog hunter?

Meme’s communication mechanisms include social media and community interaction, viral marketing, the use of celebrity effects, KOL and community influence, wealth effects, incentive mechanisms, unique concepts and designs, innovative and easy-to-spread topics.

To mine thousands of coins in advance, you need to look at the ease of spreading of the projects culture, as well as the initial and core seed users (coin holders). Its early community culture, its pictures, and names must be impressive.

An active community is key to the success of Meme coins. Research the team and developers behind the project to learn about their experience and background. Identify good narratives. Check if the project has reputable partners or backers. Use on-chain bots to monitor data. Whether to turn to practical applications to sustain growth after the market is saturated.

The author specifically recommends diversifying your portfolio when faced with memes and not investing all your money in a single asset.

Bitcoin Ecology

Comprehensive interpretation of Stacks: Ten years of hard work

Stacks has stable and upward fundamentals, a team that continues to build through cycles, and combined with strong catalysts such as the Nakomoto upgrade, it is a presence that cannot be ignored in Bitcoin L2. If you are optimistic about the overall development of L2 and believe that Bitcoin will have more uses besides being a SOV (becoming a productive asset), you can use $STX as a beta configuration of the Bitcoin ecosystem at a suitable price.

Multiple ecology and cross-chain

Learn about the latest developments in the Filecoin DeFi ecosystem in one article

FVM brings programmability to Filecoin’s verifiable storage and opens up a unique DeFi ecosystem around improving on-chain capital markets. For example, liquidity staking is an important component of Filecoin DeFi, and its TVL has exceeded US$500 million. As the network develops, multiple key infrastructures such as AMM, Bridge, Oracle and Collateralized Debt Position (CDP) will jointly promote the development of DeFi in 2024.

Weekly Editors Picks (0323-0329)

As the number and diversity of DeFi protocols on Filecoin increases, it will bring deeper liquidity. The continued growth of the DeFi economy, coupled with the addition of more services to the chain and the use of FVM for payments, will comprehensively increase network revenue and utility. It is expected that the strong traction of DeFi will expand the scale of Filecoin as an L1 ecosystem, and core services such as storage and computing will become the pillars of the decentralized Internet.

Frax announces Singularity roadmap: launching 23 L3s in one year, what’s the purpose?
