Narrative of the Week: How Will This Year End?

It appears that life is returning to the crypto space after a prolonged and challenging period. We are likely to witness price increases heading towards $40K and more in anticipation of the ETF. 

  • Derivatives, particularly BTC options, have been heating up as well. The total open interest for bitcoin options across exchanges reached a record high of $15.37B

  • Stablecoins have stopped their decline and have not reached new lows for over three months, signalling a potential reversal in market sentiment 

  • The DeFi market has rebounded significantly, reaching a three-month high with a TVL of $42B

  • Major and large projects such as Solana, Injective, and Rollbit have seen gains of 76%, 75%, and 65% respectively. Meaning investor sentiment has turned bullish

  • Furthermore, the charts tell us significant moves are occurring. Bitcoin dominance has surged to 54%, signifying a clear preference for Bitcoin over altcoins in anticipation of the ETF approval. Interestingly, the current rise in BTC dominance is reminiscent of the ascent observed in 2018 and 2019, which foreshadowed the 2021 bull market

Bitcoin Monthly Outlook: 2016 vs 2023 Cycle

The comparative analysis between the 2016 and 2023 cycles eloquently brings to mind the timeless adage, "History doesn't repeat itself, but it often rhymes."

  • While the timeframe may exhibit some variation in the future, there is a strong conviction that we are on the cusp of witnessing a significant milestone, with the possibility of reaching 42k by the conclusion of this quarter 

  • This projection is further substantiated by the recent monthly close above the 32k mark, propelling us into a new trading range that is poised for exploration

  • The potential trading range that has been identified for this cycle is between 31.8k and 48k, opening up a wide spectrum of opportunities for traders to capitalize on the market's movements

Project Spotlight: Marinade Finance

Solana has undeniably emerged as one of the standout performers in the recent crypto rally. In light of this, let's explore the options available to SOL holders keen on staking their tokens to harness attractive yields

  • Staking: Marinade enables users to stake SOL tokens, receiving marinated SOL tokens (mSOL) in return

  • Versatile Utility: mSOL serves as the liquid staking token bestowed upon users when engaging with the Marinade protocol

  • Value Appreciation: The value of mSOL steadily appreciates with each epoch, a result of rewards being dispensed for the staked SOL within the protocol

Marinade currently has around $325M locked in TVL, making it one of the largest protocols in the Solana ecosystem. Though TVL has drastically dropped from its ATH, there has been an uptick recently with the surge of SOL. Source: DefiLlama.

Blue Chip and Major Overview 

The crypto market is currently experiencing significant growth, with major and large projects such as Solana, Injective, and Rollbit seeing gains of 76%, 75%, and 65% respectively. This indicates that capital is flowing into projects that are considered high-risk but have the potential for high rewards

  • Additionally, other coins such as CANTO, MINA and NEAR continue to perform very well, while gains made by other coins like RLB, PEPE, and MANA suggest that investors are willing to take on more risk in search of higher returns

  • Furthermore, the growth of multichain RWA Hashnote, with a TVL growth of 373.51%, being one example, indicates that it is likely the new bull cycle will see new major and bluechip protocols emerge offering stiff competition to the well-established big players such as Maker, Compound and Aave
