Data retrieved from Messari researcher, Mason Nystrom, showed a top U.S proprietary trading firm, Jump Trading – with expertise in algorithmic and high-frequency trades and 700 employees globally, accumulating six DeFi cryptos quietly.

What this means: The many global economic challenges prevailing around the globe which include the exponential rise of COVID-19, inflation, and the alarming plunge in value for most fiat currencies have made paper money an unreliable store of value

No retreat no surrender, Ethereum explodes

Ethereum was trading at $1,532.05 on the FTX exchange with a 24 daily trading volume of $26.6 Billion.

Ethereum has been on a record buying spree amid its most recent price correction as institutional investors buy more at its dips.

At the time of drafting this report, Ethereum was trading at $1,532.05 on the FTX exchange with a 24 daily trading volume of $26.6 Billion. Ethereum is up 11.54% for the day.

Ether is the crypto asset that powers the Ethereum network. Crypto developers build apps on the Ethereum network, as it offers a unique type of decentralized software platform, which is different from the flagship crypto, which is designed to just be a currency or store of value.

Prakash Chand, Managing Director at FD7 Ventures also revealed also believes Ethereum would do far better than Bitcoin in the coming years;

“I’ve been lucky enough to spend lots of time with the brightest minds in crypto and I’m willing to bet that each of Ethereum, Cardano, and Polkadot will be more valuable than Bitcoin within the next few years,” he said.

That being said there has never been so much sustained activity of addresses interacting with Ethereum.

The 3-month average of aa’s has broken over its previous all-time high and it doesn’t look like it wants to go back!

In addition, Ethereum (ETH) miners seem to have an edge now over their arch-rivals, as they have surpassed Bitcoin (BTC) miners on transaction fees charged for some months now.

Crypto market data aggregator, Messari revealed key metrics showing that it is the longest period for which Ethereum’s transaction fee revenue has surpassed BTC in the crypto asset’s history.

This prevailing macro is positive for Ether miners whose turnovers have been increased by higher fees and more transactions. In fact, Ethereum’s network hash rate has been growing consistently, having reached a near two-year high.

Demand for Bitcoin is growing high amid tightened supply

The amount of illiquid Bitcoin supply in the network has grown more than the circulating supply since 2017.

Published

Crypto experts argue that such strong demand in the Bitcoin market is largely attributed to the fact institutions are coming.

The market liquidity is tightening at the flagship Crypto market, as there are less than 4 million BTCs in circulation available for upcoming investors including the likes of  Grayscale, Paypal, Microstrategy, hedge funds, and so on.

Only 21 million Bitcoins are ever going to be produced in total, and presently, there is about 18.9 million Bitcoin in circulation.

This shows a differential of about 2.1 million Bitcoin that are left to be produced, not forgetting about 4.5 million Bitcoins that have already been lost forever.

This also means that liquidity is drying up, as demand for the world’s most popular crypto hits record highs

The amount of illiquid Bitcoin supply in the network has grown more than the circulating supply since 2017.

Meanwhile, liquid supply continues to see a steep decrease.

According to Yann & Jan:

“Float in the network is drying up faster than ever.
“Currently, about 78% of issued bitcoin’s are either lost or being hodled, leaving less than 4 million bitcoins to be shared amongst future market entrants (incl. Paypal, Square, SP500 Companies, ETF’s, etc).

It’s also important to understand Institutional investors love transparency, regulation meaning the more regulated Bitcoin mechanisms such as regulating Crypto exchanges handling it, the more value major institutions will place in it, thus making Bitcoin a less volatile asset in the long term.

Glassnode also revealed that a million Bitcoins (BTC) or almost $30 billion in actual prices, disappeared from the liquid supply in 2020. This process even outperformed the inflow of new Bitcoins (BTC) into the network:

“Currently, we are at a stage in which the illiquid supply is growing more than the total circulating supply according to the report. A similar pattern presently played out again during the bullish rally of 2017.”
