1. Market environment

Cryptocurrency prices saw significant volatility on Thursday. Before the approval, ETH first fell to $3,500 around the closing time of the traditional U.S. market, then soared to around $3,900, and finally stabilized above $3,800 after confirmation. Bitcoin also fell to a low of $66,000, then soared to $68,300 before falling back below $68,000.

According to data from CoinGlass, during this turbulent period, liquidations of all leveraged crypto derivatives positions soared to more than $360 million that day, the highest level since May 1. Most of the liquidated positions were long positions, worth about $250 million, indicating that highly leveraged traders were concentrated on betting on an immediate surge after the ETF was approved. ETH traders were hit the hardest, with liquidations reaching $132 million.

2. Wealth-making sector

1) Sector changes: RWA sector (ONDO)

Main reason: This bull market mainly originated from the traditional market buying brought by ETFs. As a way to introduce traditional financial markets, RWA has been constantly updating its products and raising funds. Recently, RWA layer 2 network Plume Network completed a $10 million seed round of financing.

Rising situation: ONDOs daily increase today is 13.46%;

Factors affecting the market outlook:

  • Changes in macro monetary policy: In terms of the macro environment, the rise in the yield of the 10-year U.S. Treasury bond supports the fundamentals of the RWA track; we need to pay attention to the subsequent changes in the U.S. dollar index, U.S. Treasury yields and the crypto market, and dynamically adjust trading strategies;

  • Changes in project TVL: RWA track projects are basically supported by TVL. You can pay attention to the changes in TVL of the RWA track. If the TVL of a project continues to rise/suddenly rises, it is usually a signal to buy;

2) Sector changes: Ethereum staking sector (LDO, SSV, ETHFI)

Main reason: The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission today approved the 19 b-4 forms of multiple Ethereum spot ETFs, including those from BlackRock, Fidelity and Grayscale. Since ETFs only allow Ethereum tokens and do not allow staking, this regulation greatly reduces the attractiveness to ETF investors, so the Ethereum re-staking sector will usher in substantial benefits.

Rising situation: LDO rose 10.8% in the past 4 days, SSV rose 7.97% in the past 7 days, and ETHFI rose 22.85% in the past 4 days;

Factors affecting the market outlook:

  • Fund inflow after ETH ETF is approved: At present, the ETF is in the countdown for listing after approval. If a large amount of funds flow in after approval, it will further push up the ETH price.

  • Protocol trends: The cash flow of staking sector projects is relatively stable and easy to predict. They are a type of project whose token prices can be estimated more accurately. The main influencing factors are the protocol TVL, income distribution method, token destruction, etc.

3) The sector that needs to be focused on in the future: TON ecosystem

main reason:

  • Panteras investment in TON may be at least over US$250 million, which is Panteras largest investment in cryptocurrency in history.

  • Notcoin, a high-traffic project in the TON ecosystem, has been listed on Binance, but the TON token itself has not yet been listed on Binance. The market expects that it is only a matter of time before TON is listed on Binance.

  • The infrastructure of the TON ecosystem is in its early stages. Currently, high-traffic projects such as Notcoin and Catizen have emerged, demonstrating a huge user base backed by Telegram.

  • The increase in the issuance of stablecoins in the ecosystem has brought financial vitality. The supply of USDT on the TON chain reached 130 million within two weeks, making it the eighth blockchain in terms of USDT issuance.

Specific project list:

  • TON: The native token of the Ton chain, currently listed on exchanges such as OKX and Bitget.

  • FISH: Ton ecosystem head meme token.

  • REDO: A dog-themed meme coin on the Ton chain.

From a global perspective:

ETH ETF: A new compliance milestone in the crypto world: Ethereum spot ETF finally approved. On May 23rd, local time in the United States, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) officially approved all Ethereum ETFs, providing investors with a new opportunity to invest in Ethereum through traditional financial channels. This decision is seen as a major endorsement of the cryptocurrency industry, becoming the second cryptocurrency ETF approved by the SEC after the spot Bitcoin ETF. After approval, the price of Ethereum rose slightly and fluctuated around $3,800, reaching a high of $3,856. It is currently reported at $3,807, a 24-hour increase of 1.3%. After the news landed, the fluctuation was not as large as in the previous few days, but it caused a lot of attention on the entire Twitter social media.

From the hot searches in each region:

(1) Europe and CIS regions show a certain degree of interest in MEME:

As the crypto market rebounded significantly, PEPE tokens continued to hit new highs, and users began to buy back their chips into MEME coins to gain higher returns. From the searches of European users, it can be seen that European users generally search for MEME coins more frequently, which also means that users in the European market are more involved in the MEME coin market.

(2) The Asian region has shown a clear increase in attention to BTC, ETH ETFs, etc.:

Influenced by Bloombergs report that Hong Kong may pass BTC and ETH ETFs this week, searches in the Asian region have clearly increased their attention to the event.
