Bitcoin hit a new all-time high of $69,000 after 846 days

⌐◪-◪ → Bitcoin finally hit a new all-time high of $69,000 after a 28-month-long downturn that bottomed out around -77%.

This all-time high is unprecedented because it’s the first time Bitcoin hit an ATH pre-halving, which will happen in ~43 days.

With that said, it was pretty short-lived as Bitcoin’s price pulled back 12%, triggering $1B in liquidations — the highest since the previous cycle’s top.

There’s no telling where Bitcoin goes from here, we are in uncharted territory, but if past performance is any indication of future results…

3 of the last 4 times Bitcoin hit a new all-time high, Bitcoin doubled in 18 days or less.

Add the upcoming halving to that + the spot Bitcoin ETFs, and things are looking mega-bullish.

MetaStreet facilitates $10M loan by 5,000 lenders for 60 CryptoPunks

⌐◪-◪ → The NFT bull market rages on as popular lending protocol MetaStreet facilitates the largest CryptoPunk loan of all time.

The loan was for $10M, provided by 5,000 lenders, and collateralized by 60 CryotoPunks. With a floor price of $210.7k, that’s at least $12.64M of collateral and an approximate loan-to-value ratio of 79.1%.

The lenders are receiving double-digit yields of ~21% APR for holding a yield-bearing token that’s essentially a T-Bil for CryptoPunks.

Meanwhile, if you want an IRL loan, you have to file infinite documents with the bank. With decentralized lending protocols, you can borrow millions in just a few clicks.

Bitcoin ETFs net inflows hit $8.5B with no sign of slowing down

⌐◪-◪ → Wall Street’s beloved Bitcoin ETFs just surpassed $8.5B in total net inflows and show zero signs of slowing down. Just look at the chart above.

BlackRock alone pulled $788M of daily net inflows, which for context is 14x the daily new supply of Bitcoin.

If BlackRock’s inflows don’t change at all, that’s 28x the daily new supply of Bitcoin post-halving. Insane.

People like to overcomplicate things and draw lines on charts, but at the end of the day the story is pretty simple — demand > supply.

Don’t mid-curve it.
