1. Market Environment

In the early hours of yesterday, Bitcoin experienced a significant drop, hitting a low of $66,032 and falling more than 5.5% over 24 hours before rebounding to $67,500 by morning. The high volatility was marked by $255 million in total liquidations in the past 24 hours, with long positions accounting for $236 million and short positions $19.5956 million, with the majority being long positions. The U.S. stock market showed fluctuations as the overall market adopted a cautious stance in anticipation of the U.S. FOMC meeting and CPI inflation data tonight.
Yesterday (June 11, ET), spot Bitcoin ETFs saw a net outflow of $200 million, ending 19 consecutive days of net inflows. Grayscale's GBTC had a net outflow of $121 million for the day, bringing its total historical net outflows to $18.093 billion. The recent wealth effects have been pronounced in new tokens, such as NOT, which showed a substantial increase after listing on Binance, including IO, which was opened for trading on the same platform yesterday. Investors are advised to keep an eye on new token launches and the market performance of some blue-chip chains.

2. Wealth Creation Sectors

2.1 Sector Movements — Blue-chip chains (FTM and TON)

Primary reason: The TON and FTM ecosystems are actively managing their communities and releasing updates on new projects, which circulates wealth within these ecosystems and creates potential buying interest in their assets.
Gainers: FTM rebounded slightly to $0.65 yesterday; TON hovered around $7.
Factors affecting future market conditions:
  • Impressive data across the board: Since February, the activity on the TON network has been on an upward trend, with daily active addresses now exceeding Ethereum. The ecosystem's TVL has surpassed $460 million, setting a new historical high
  • Continued ecosystem development: Yesterday, the Fantom Foundation released the second Sonic governance proposal, including an airdrop of S tokens for Opera and Sonic users and a plan to increase activity and TVL through a burning mechanism. The TON ecosystem also announced the launch of the fourth season of the TON OpenLeague, starting at 19:00 today. This season features enhanced pools on and DeDust and offers more than $1.8 million in rewards over the next two weeks. Users can earn rewards by maintaining on-chain activity and providing liquidity.

2.2 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.

ZKSYNC: Yesterday, ZKSync launched its airdrop checker, leading to significant dissatisfaction among users on X who met the criteria but did not receive the airdrop.
