GSR: Will the Solana ETF go through? What is the potential impact on price?

The two key factors that determine the next spot ETF are the degree of decentralization and potential demand. After analysis, if the United States allows additional spot digital asset ETFs, Solana will be the next one.

The spot Solana ETF could see inflows of 2%, 5%, or 14% of Bitcoin respectively (pessimistic, neutral, optimistic). Weekly Editors Picks (0629-0705) Referring to the impact of spot Bitcoin ETF on Bitcoin (increased 2.3 times), the conclusion is as follows:

In-depth discussion: Is there still a need for governance tokens?

The article proposes a four-quadrant framework for evaluating governance tokens based on the reliability of token holders’ rights and control over economic value. It studies the tokens in each quadrant through sample cases, and finally provides builders and investors with advice on how to build and evaluate governance tokens.

Governance tokens can add value in two main ways: by helping applications manage the risks inherent in their business models and by providing utility to their holders in the form of tangible economic value (like GMX).

Whether a cryptocurrency project is brand new or mature, it’s not too late to identify shortcomings and make changes.

In the era of blockchain space commercialization, will “fat applications” eventually rise?

Valuable order flow is more important than the quantity of order flow. Applications will account for the largest proportion of total value.

Looking ahead, applications should look to create new types of order flows, including: creating new assets (e.g. Pump and memecoins), building applications for new use cases (e.g. Worldcoin, ENS), creating vertically integrated better consumer experiences and supporting valuable transactions, such as Farcaster and Frames, Solana Blinks, Telegram and TG applications, or on-chain games.

How to choose potential Meme coins based on TVL changes?

The Memecoin TVL pull-up theory holds that a major memecoin or a basket of major memecoins will serve as a leveraged bet for on-chain TVL.

Taking Base and TON as examples, TVL inflow = major memecoin performance. If you can predict that TVL will increase, you can hold a position in the major memecoin on that chain as a leveraged bet on the TVL prediction.

Predicting TVL growth can be divided into two categories: long-term and short-term. Long-term forecasts are essentially predicting where TVL will go over multiple months. Short-term approaches look at short-term catalysts like points programs or airdrops as the reason for TVL growth.

Ethereum and Scaling

With L1 and L2 crowded together, what other L3 projects are worth paying attention to?

The general idea of Layer 3 is to further scale Ethereum by creating highly customizable, cheap, fast, and interoperable chains with varying degrees of security and decentralization. Examples of Layer 3 frameworks include Arbitrum Orbit and zkSync Hyperchains. This article briefly introduces Degen Chain (DEGEN) and Sanko (DMT).

Altcoins keep falling, it’s time to refocus on DeFi

There are three reasons for the sharp drop in the price of altcoins: insufficient growth on the demand side, excessive growth on the supply side, and a continuous wave of lifting of restrictions.

It is the right time to pay attention to DeFi because PMF products have emerged from the bubble period – from the business perspective: it has a mature business model and profit model, and the leading projects have a moat; from the supply side: low emissions, high circulation ratio, and a small scale of tokens to be released; from the valuation side: market attention and business data diverge, and the valuation level falls into the historical low range; from the policy side: the FIT 21 Act is conducive to the compliance of the Defi industry and may trigger potential mergers and acquisitions.

The article further analyzes Aave, Uniswap, Raydium, Lido, and GMX as examples.

GameFi, SocialFi

Discussing the future development of blockchain games from the perspective of VC and Builder

If you have strong technical skills, first consider a decentralized full-chain casual game based on a social platform.

If you have strong operational capabilities, first consider centralized GameFi mini-games based on a social platform, with TON being the first choice.

It is not recommended to invest in/produce large-scale 3A blockchain games targeting Web3 users. This is a pitfall.

Can Farcaster, the social leader with a valuation of 1 billion, become a new hot spot in the bull market?

Farcasters total number of users has reached 540,000, and the number of daily active users has surged from 2k at the beginning of the year to 56k at present, an increase of more than 28 times.

Farcaster protocol data is stored in the hub on and off the chain. Developers can choose to run the hub node themselves or use third-party service providers like Neynar to obtain data. All of this data is permissionless. Based on this available data, developers can build various clients and applications, which greatly increases the richness and innovation space of the Farcaster ecosystem.

Users can track the progress of the ecosystem through the decaster website . The article also introduces some highlight projects: WrapCast, Jam, Clubcast, BountyCaster, AlfaFrens.

Built for a new generation of attention merchants, crypto products are moving closer to SocialFi

Viewpoint: Web3 needs Mass Admission, not Mass Adoption

Crypto has boundaries. All its features (privacy, decentralization) come from its core value – permissionlessness, which is not available to most people on the planet. We think there are no new users now because the market is about to reach its actual TAM extreme.

The existing market has never been a problem, but high-frequency users are. The essence of Crypto growth is the process of cultivating high-frequency and large users. What Crypto/Web3 needs to make clear is let them make money and admit merchants from all over the world to come here and try to make money, provided that they learn the rules of Crypto. The way they make money is to play games involving money flows (trading, staking, lending, etc.), and everything revolves around this logic.

Web3 Mini Programs? MetaMask Snaps Explained

The number of available Snaps listed on the official website is actually not very large. As of June 2024, there are only 68 at most. Due to understandable security considerations, a basic Snaps cant do much. Most of its functions require corresponding permissions first, so Snaps need to apply for relevant permissions from users when installing. Available permissions include lifecycle, transaction, signature, CRON, etc. Compared with the prosperous Web3 ecosystem, the number of available Snaps is pitifully small.

According to the classification on the MetaMask official website, it can be roughly divided into 4 types: account management, interoperability, notifications and chat, and security.

For most of MetaMasks current users, Snaps is not really a necessary feature, and MetaMask may need to do more work on how to promote it more effectively. But no matter what, it is at least a product built by a group of passionate developers who want to solve real problems, rather than a scam launched by a group of financial experts.
