The macroeconomic environment does not seem to be worth mentioning in the face of strong growth.

Depending on the current market situation, the buying force is from block traders. At the same time, the lower funding rate also confirms this fact.

Ethereum also made considerable gains this week, with its spot price approaching $4,400. Through the analysis of the pledge data on the chain, the pledge amount of Ethereum far exceeds the level of May this year, so the current currency price rise has a relatively solid foundation. Unlike Bitcoin, the allocation of options contracts in the current market is more concentrated in March and June 2022, that is to say, the current market is still led by Bitcoin.

Application developers have proposed different innovations about on-chain applications. Applications such as OHM and Spell have attracted the attention of many investors. Such innovations have opened up our imagination for on-chain innovation.


According to Coinshares data, the digital asset fund reached an inflow of US$1.4 billion last week. The total inflow of Bitcoin last week was US$1.45 billion. The record inflow is a direct result of the US Securities and Exchange Commission's approval of Bitcoin ETF investment futures and the subsequent listing of two Bitcoin investment products, with a total inflow of US$1.24 billion. The current market is very similar to the third quarter of last year.
