CEX returned more than $200 million in Bitcoin to the German government address, possibly because it failed to sell within the target price range

According to Arkham monitoring, the German government address received a total of 3,673 bitcoins (worth over $200 million) early this morning, of which 3,623 bitcoins came from Coinbase, Kraken and Bitstamp, and 50 bitcoins came from an address starting with bc 1 qxw.

Steven Zheng, head of research at The Block, said the exchanges were likely returning the bitcoins to German government addresses because they were unable to sell their bitcoins within the target price range.
“Considering that some bitcoins have been returned from Coinbase to the German government address, it can be assumed that they are unsold bitcoins that were part of a sales agreement between the cryptocurrency exchange and the country,” said Steven Zheng.
Data shows that the German government address currently holds 27,461 bitcoins, equivalent to approximately US$1.56 billion.

The German government transferred a total of 16,038.7 BTC on July 8

Investment Director of Waterdrip Capital: We have been developing the TON ecosystem since last year and have invested in more than 6 projects

Elaine Yang, investment director of Waterdrip Capital, posted on the X platform that European and American institutions have invested less in the TON ecosystem due to compliance and position issues, but Telegram traffic cannot be ignored. Asian institutions pay attention to the TON ecosystem, but they have made fewer investments. Waterdrip Capital Fund has been planning and optimistic about the TON ecosystem since last year, and has invested in more than 6 projects. However, many projects last year were limited by the TON chain infrastructure, and there were not many. The project party made TG Bot very quickly, but it was not closely related to the TON public chain.

Elaine Yang suggested that entrepreneurs should pay attention to Telegram traffic. The cost of obtaining natural traffic is low, but the quality of users needs to be further screened. The cost of subsequent traffic will definitely increase. She is optimistic about DeFi, transaction and payment-related projects on the TON chain, and foresees that more Meme assets of TON ecological games will be launched.

Fairlead Strategies founder: I strongly agree to add Bitcoin to the investment portfolio

The founder of portfolio manager Fairlead Strategies said in an interview with CNBC that he is a big believer in adding Bitcoin to the portfolio.

Morgan Stanley strategist: US stocks are very likely to pull back 10%

Morgan Stanley strategist Mike Wilson said traders should prepare for a correction in U.S. stocks as uncertainty grows around the U.S. presidential election, corporate earnings and Federal Reserve policy. I think theres a good chance of a 10% correction at some point between now and the U.S. election, Wilson said in an interview on Monday. The third quarter is going to be volatile, and companies are losing pricing power and need rate cuts.

Goldman Sachs Scott Rubner said Monday he expects stocks to experience two painful weeks starting in August if corporate earnings miss expectations. Andrew Tyler of JPMorgan Chase Co.s trading desk said he remains bullish but that recent weaker economic data has made him a little less confident. Citigroups Scott Chronert warned of a potential pullback.
Morgan Stanleys Wilson said, The probability of stock prices going up between now and the end of the year is very low, much lower than normal. Wilson, however, is not particularly worried about a pullback. Instead, he said it could create opportunities for investors because valuations are currently lackluster following the SP 500s double-digit gains this year. He said the best way to invest in the stock market right now is through individual stocks, not indexes.

JPMorgan Chase: The total market value of cryptocurrencies fell 8% in June, and stablecoins performed better than other sectors

The total cryptocurrency market value fell 8% in June to around $2.25 trillion, reversing most of its gains in May, JPMorgan Chase said in a research note on Monday.

Analyst Kenneth Worthington wrote: The market capitalization of tokens, DeFi, and NFTs all retreated in June. Data shows that daily spot crypto trading volume fell 18% compared with the previous month. From the perspective of valuation and trading volume, March 2024 is the peak of the crypto ecosystem in the current cycle.
The bank noted that the move was in stark contrast to traditional markets, with the SP 500 up 4% and the tech-heavy Nasdaq up 6% for the month.
However, the report added that stablecoins outperformed other crypto sectors in June, mainly driven by USDT. In addition, the total market value of listed Bitcoin mining companies also increased by 19%, and these companies benefited from the gains brought by electricity use cases related to artificial intelligence.
JPMorgan also said that spot Bitcoin ETFs had their second-worst month for flows since launch, and estimated that 10 U.S. spot ETFs had sales of $662 million during the month.

Bitbank analyst: Mt.Gox compensation is expected to have little impact on the market, and its impact has been over-digested

Bitbank, a cryptocurrency exchange that supports the Mt. Gox compensation effort, said it expects changes in Mt. Gox wallet balances to have less impact on the market. Yuya Hasegawa, a crypto market analyst at Bitbank, said: When the Mt. Gox trustee officially announced that they had begun repayments, Bitcoin was already fluctuating around $54,000. After the announcement, Bitcoin prices rebounded and briefly recovered to $58,000 last weekend.

The market had already overpriced in the impact of Mt. Gox before it started paying, and then reacted to the (U.S.) jobs report last Friday, which was released after Mt. Gox started paying, Hasegawa said, adding, This suggests that market concerns about the Mt. Gox repayment are starting to wane, and their focus is shifting back to the Feds policy decision.

CryptoQuant analyst: This is the largest liquidation of long orders in the past year

CryptoQuant analyst SignalQuant wrote that the recent BTC price plunge has dealt a severe blow to long position holders.

The scale of this long order blowout is the largest in the past year, and we estimate that this long squeeze is also quite significant. However, we cannot easily conclude that the market will rebound after experiencing a large-scale long order blowout. Because from August to October 2023, the price experienced several months of adjustment before rebounding. Therefore, it is recommended that investors maintain a temporarily less greedy and more conservative mentality to invest.

Dragonfly partner Haseeb: Even in a bull market, issuing coins still needs to go through the test of a bear market

Dragonfly managing partner Haseeb wrote on the X platform that many founders try to launch tokens during the bull market, but these tokens still have to go through a bear market in the end. Haseeb is skeptical about the impact of market cycles on the long-term value of tokens, and believes that this suggests that some tokens systematically perform poorly due to the market cycle at the time of issuance, which is unlikely.

Haseeb added that while tokens issued in a bull market may have more funds for growth, market competition is relative. If the market falls by 50%, the native token ecosystem fund will also fall by 50%, and the market share will remain relatively unchanged. Haseeb emphasized that the timing of fundraising activities is indeed important, but he was discussing token issuance (TGE), which is more similar to direct listing than fundraising activities.
