Binance Research: The total market value of cryptocurrencies fell by 11.4% in June, and EigenLayers market share fell to a low of 92.2%

Binance Research recently released a market analysis for June, which stated:

1. The crypto market experienced a clear downward momentum in June, which ultimately led to a 11.4% drop in total market value. In July, Mt.Gox announced that it would repay more than 140,000 BTC, after which BTC fell sharply. It is worth noting that the US and German governments are simultaneously transferring large amounts of BTC to centralized exchanges, which has exacerbated the negative sentiment in the market;
2. Miners have been net sellers of Bitcoin since November 2023, the longest consecutive period of net selling since 2017. This has caused miners Bitcoin balances to reach their lowest level in 14 years, with one important driving factor being the Bitcoin halving event in April. Given that block rewards account for the majority of miners income, many miners are forced to sell their Bitcoin holdings to survive. In addition, there has been a wave of transactions and mergers and acquisitions in the industry, including transactions for Hut 8, CleanSpark, and Core Scientific;
3. Over the past month, the activity of the TON ecosystem has continued to increase, with the number of daily active addresses reaching a record high of nearly 578,000 on June 14. Notable drivers and developments include the continued success of The Open League, Binance’s integration of USDT on the network, and Pantera Capital’s announcement of a new financing plan to increase investment in TON;
4. BNB is one of the strongest performing exchange-related tokens this year, up 86.4% year-to-date. In addition to benefiting from the overall market improvement, BNBs performance has also been boosted by the additional utility brought by multiple Binance Launchpool activities and new initiatives such as Binances Megadrop and HODLer Airdrops;
5. EigenLayers market share fell to a low of 92.2%, indicating that competition in the re-staking track has intensified. Although smaller in scale, Karak and Paradigm-backed Symbiotic have both achieved significant growth: Symbiotic reached its initial deposit limit of $200 million in one day, and Karaks TVL exceeded $1 billion for the first time. Nevertheless, EigenLayers first-mover advantage shows that Karak and Symbiotic still have a long way to go to further develop in this fast-growing sub-field.

Industry News

Coin Metrics: Mining profits are under pressure after halving, and Bitcoin mining companies are about to enter an era of consolidation

Coin Metrics released a report analyzing the current state of the Bitcoin mining market, which pointed out that Bitcoin mining profit margins have been under pressure since the Bitcoin halving in April due to stagnant BTC prices and a sluggish fee market, although short-term on-chain congestion has eased some revenue pressure. On April 20, the Bitcoin block reward dropped from 6.25 BTC to 3.125 BTC, and the rune hype gradually subsided in the following weeks. May and June were very difficult months for miners.
Coin Metrics’ report also mentioned that Bitcoin mining companies are about to enter an era of consolidation, with well-funded miners acquiring the assets of less efficient operators. Coin Metrics concluded: “To survive the onslaught of efficiency improvements and competitive pressures, miners must look to the future, and the long-term trend of BTC prices remains an unpredictable input for highly capital-intensive business models.”

UniSat: Most of the development work of L1 Swap has been completed, and Fractal Swap is planned to be launched in September and introduce an incentive mechanism

According to official news, UniSat released important updates related to its Swap product. Over the past six months, the team has been working with L1 F to promote the standardization of L1 (Bitcoin mainnet) brc 20-swap, making it part of the brc-20 standard upgrade. Due to the need for coordination between multiple teams, the standardization process of swap has been longer than expected. The team is actively seeking ways to improve this situation and increase delivery certainty.

After extensive testing over the past year and a half, the team has initially verified that the product can run properly on the Bitcoin mainnet. Most of the engineering work for the swap module has been completed, and the remaining work mainly includes:
– Assist indexers other than UniSat Indexer to effectively identify and calculate inscriptions related to swap modules;
– Ensure UniSats submitted calculations match those of other teams through hash verification to avoid accounting discrepancies.
These tasks are being carried out in an orderly manner, and it is expected that this function will be launched on the mainnet soon. The official will coordinate and communicate with L1 F to finally determine the time for launching on the Bitcoin mainnet.
In addition to advancing swap standardization, the team has also made progress in systematically scaling Bitcoin through a method called Fractal Bitcoin. Given the current progress, the team is very confident that Fractal Bitcoin will be delivered in September.

North Carolina governor vetoes CBDC ban bill

North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper has vetoed a bill that would have prohibited the state from implementing a central bank digital currency issued by the Federal Reserve, despite the fact that the bill received near-unanimous support from both the House and Senate. Roy Cooper, who has been criticized for making a politically motivated decision, explained in a statement on June 5 that House Bill 690 was “premature, vague, and reactionary” and not suitable for signing into law.

The U.S. House of Representatives plans to hold a key vote this week on Bidens veto of SAB 121

The U.S. House of Representatives plans to hold a crucial vote this week on whether to override President Biden’s veto of Staff Accounting Bulletin 121 (SAB 121). SAB 121 has sparked controversy in the crypto industry over concerns that it could affect banks’ custody of digital assets.

The rule is currently on the Houses list of legislation for possible consideration, according to the weekly schedule released by House Majority Leader Steve Scalise. Voting to override or uphold a presidential veto is the Houses constitutional obligation, so another vote is necessary. That vote could come on Tuesday or Wednesday.
Although the House of Representatives passed the resolution in May with a vote of 228-182, a two-thirds majority in both houses is still needed to override the veto. Political experts have mixed opinions on this vote. Alexander Grieve, head of government affairs at Paradigm, said that it may not be impossible. Others believe that it is difficult to successfully override the veto.

Jack Dorsey: BTC is a potential alternative to the US dollar

Jack Dorsey, co-founder of Twitter (now X) and CEO of Block (formerly Square), explained at a recent event in Italy that over time, people will gradually recognize the value and power of BTC, which he sees as a possible alternative to the US dollar. Jack Dorsey added: It will take some time, but people will gradually recognize the value of the (Bitcoin) system and why it is so powerful and why it can be a complement to the US dollar or a substitute for the US dollar.

Tether CEO: Locally executable AI models are the only way to protect user privacy and ensure independence

Tether CEO Paolo Ardoino said in a post on X: OpenAI seems to have been hacked not long ago, which is a terrible thing. Locally executable AI models are the only way to protect user privacy and ensure resilience/independence. The new generation of smartphones and laptops are powerful enough to fine-tune general LLMs based on users own data and keep the enhanced features in the device in a localized way.

Glassnode: The current real market value of Bitcoin is $50,000, representing the average cost basis of each active investor

Glassnode published an analysis that the current Bitcoin price is still in the enthusiastic bull market stage. After entering the frenzy range, it quickly fell back. The real market average is $50,000, representing the average cost basis of each active investor. If the macro bull market is expected to continue, this level is still the key price level that the market needs to stay above. Bitcoins unrealized profits indicate that the market may be overheated. The current value is $92,000. The break-even level for the short-term holder group is $64,000. The current spot price is below this level, but it is trying to recover. It is worth noting that only 7% of trading days record spot prices below the -1 standard deviation band, making it a relatively rare situation.

Gold advocate Peter Schiff: BTC institutional demand may be a myth

Gold advocate and economist Peter Schiff said on the X platform this week that the Bitcoin bear market still has a long way to go and is currently at a critical support level and if the support level is not stable, the price may fall sharply. Peter Schiff attributed the decline of Bitcoin in part to Mt. Goxs repayment of related sales, but he argued that this also exposed that institutional demand may be a myth.

Peter Schiff said: If the demand was real, buyers would jump at the chance to buy Mt. Gox Bitcoin OTC. Based on trading activity, Bitcoin ETF buyers appear to be holding on. So far, there are no signs of panic. Bitcoin may need to fall significantly before they finally capitulate. This could happen as early as next week, especially after another massive sell-off this weekend. Ethereum is about to fall to $1,500, and it seems that those who bought into the Ethereum ETF rumors cant wait to sell.

Pudgy Penguins CEO: NFT is to Ethereum as Meme Coin is to Solana

Pudgy Penguins CEO Luca Netz posted on the X platform that NFT has done for the Ethereum ecosystem just as Meme coins have contributed to the Solana ecosystem. Don’t underestimate the impact of culture on blockchain networks.

Cyber Capital founder: The top ten L2s by market value are a centralized dystopian nightmare

Justin Bons, founder of Cyber Capital, said on the X platform that the top 10 L2s by market capitalization are a centralized dystopian nightmare.

GSR Lianchuang: BTC still has enough time to reach new highs before the end of the year

Despite a broad sell-off in crypto markets following Mt. Gox’s move to repay creditors, which resulted in more than $665 million in liquidations in a single day, some market makers and investors remain optimistic about Bitcoin’s medium-term prospects.

Rich Rosenblum, co-CEO and co-founder of GSR, said that the amount expected to be paid by (Mt. Gox) will become a burden in the third quarter of the market. This is almost the same amount of Bitcoin mined in the first year after the halving. However, once it is digested, (the price of Bitcoin) will still have enough time to reach a new record high before the end of the year.
