Data collection time: June 11, 2024, 4:00 AM (UTC)

1. Market Environment

Yesterday, Bitcoin experienced a surge to $70,000 followed by a significant drop, now fluctuating around $68,000. Bitcoin ETFs saw their first net outflow this month after 19 consecutive days of net inflows, with an outflow of $64.9 million, contributing to the decline in Bitcoin's price.
On the macroeconomic front, with the U.S. CPI data and FOMC meeting set to be announced simultaneously on the 12th, short-term risk aversion has increased, leading to a market pullback. The focus of the FOMC meeting will be on Jerome Powell's post-meeting statements, with maintaining interest rates being the general market expectation. If the CPI shows an annual increase exceeding 3.5%, the market might continue to decline; however, if it is below 3.5%, a short-term rise in the market is highly likely.

2. Wealth Creation Sectors

2.1 Sector Movements – Memecoin Sector (PEOPLE)

Primary reasons:
As the quadrennial U.S. presidential election approaches, PEOPLE, a token closely associated with the election and supported by mainstream CEXs, has seen heightened community interest recently.
Gainers: PEOPLE has risen by over 14% in the past 7 days against the market trend.
Factors affecting future market conditions:
  • U.S. election progress: Monitoring how the election influences this sector is advisable, as favorable news could lead PEOPLE to rise first.
  • Dynamics of major investors: Understand whether major investors continue to invest by checking the futures data and primary market news. A sudden increase in open interest volume typically indicates significant investor involvement; ongoing monitoring of futures metrics is advisable.

2.2 Sector Movements – BTC Inscription Sector (ORDI)

Primary reasons:
  • UniSat announced during the Bitcoin Pizza Day that it would airdrop "pizza" to eligible wallets, which increased the popularity of inscription projects and warmed up the sector.
  • The inscription sector has rebounded from its earlier consolidation and volatility, now showing an upward trend.
Gainers: ORDI has risen by over 18% in the past 7 days against the market trend.
Factors affecting future market conditions:
  • News dynamics: Keep an eye on UniSat, influencers, and top exchanges for their support and updates on the inscription sector. Timely investments can be made if positive news is released.
  • Futures data changes: Historical data shows that ORDI's futures had a long/short ratio below 1 for an extended period, indicating that large capital was bullish on it. Continuous monitoring of CoinGlass data is advised to watch for shifts in this trend and to take profits accordingly.

2.3 Sectors to Focus on Next — ETH Ecosystem Projects

Primary reason: The decision on the spot Ethereum ETF is expected by the end of June or early July, which might lead to hype around ETH ecosystem assets. Recently, this sector has seen a significant pullback, creating attractive entry points.
Specific tokens:
  • UNI: The first DeFi Swap project on the blockchain, Uniswap, has generated US$2.022 million in transaction fees over the past 24 hours, showing substantial revenue.
  • LDO: A leading LSD project within the ETH ecosystem. It has a TVL of $34.4 billion but is valued at just under $2 billion, making it relatively undervalued.
  • PENDLE: The project's TVL has been on a continuous rise, now standing at $6.6 billion. The increase in stablecoin market cap and high demand in the restaking sector have led to an increased demand for PENDLE's services during the bull market.
