  • Bundle performance
  • Winners & Losers
  • Market overview

Bundle performance
Bitcoin indeed dipped significantly below its 200-week average on Saturday and fortunately also recovered to about the same price as last Friday. It is the last Friday of the month, when large option contracts on Bitcoin expire, which may influence the current price movement. We remain close to €20,000 and the above average with Bitcoin. The smaller Altcoins recover quite a bit this week, specially DeFi, and that is entirely appropriate.

Big 3:
1 Month: -26.37% | 7D: +4.33% | 24H: +4.19%

Top 30:
1 Month: -23.07% | 7D: +14.64% | 24H: +4.36%

Penny stock:
1 Month: -23.80% | 7D: +14.62% | 24H: +4.20%

1 Month: -32.34% | 7D: +19.99% | 24H: +3.25%

Winners & Losers

Synthetix (+71%) is taking full advantage of its cross-asset swap partnership with Curve Finance, and if Curve Finance is doing well, Convex Finance is doing better (+29%). The problems with stablecoins are causing a surge in Reserve Rights (+32%) which allows for insurance as a protection against drops in value of crypto collateral. Coinbase will soon support the Polygon (+48%) network for transfers of Ethereum and USDC. Waves (+44%), Uniswap (+44%), Yearn.Finance (+37%) and Compound (+36%) are recovering substantially this week as it becomes clear that obviously not all DeFi projects can be tossed in the trash. No losers but some underperformers. Slight recovery for Bitcoin (+1%) and Cardano (+2%), which must postpone the Vasil upgrade for a while.

Market overview

For some time now we have had the EURS stable coin from Stasis and the EURT from Tether which together account for over 300 million Euros. Now the American company Circle Internet Financial, known for the USD Coin (USDC), has announced that they will launch a fully covered stablecoin linked to the Euro on June 30. Despite the recent turmoil in the industry particularly due to partially backed stablecoins, Circle is confident that the market for crypto services will continue to grow, also in Europe.

IOTA is partnering with tech giant Dell, ClimaCHECK and BioE to combat climate change. They are developing a data-driven solution for real-time tracking of CO2 emissions.
