🔊 Top Highlights of the Week
Polygon Launches Smartphone For Web3 With Solana
By partnering with tech firm “Nothing,” Polygon is following the Solana blockchain in bringing Web3 to smartphones. Along with the “Nothing Community Dots” NFT project, the Android-based Nothing phone will debut.
Tokens are airdropped to Nothing community investors as part of the NFT project’s operation. Investors can gain access to advantages like first access to new products and events by using these tokens. Some of the earliest benefits include invitations to Nothing Phone (1)’s launch on July 12 in London.
Ethereum Name Service registrations surge by 200%
The number of registrations through the Ethereum Name Service (ENS) reached 126,141 in just one week, indicating a rise in demand in Ethereum domains.
During the weekend, registrations increased by over 200 percent, going from 11,042 to 29,727, according to Nick Johnson’s statistics tracker, the ENS Dashboard. The ENS domain “000.eth” was purchased on Sunday for 300 Ether (ETH), or about $320,000 at the time of the sale, which was the second-largest .eth domain sale.
Reddit to Launch NFT Avatars Built on Polygon
Reddit will introduce a brand-new Collectibles Avatar marketplace in the coming weeks using non-fungible tokens (NFTs) stored on Polygon’s blockchain.
The website will collaborate with artists to produce one-of-a-kind avatars that Reddit users can purchase for a set price and personalize with stuff, earning creators a cut of the sales.
In addition to a flex, purchasing one of these avatars grants the owner the license to use the artwork both on and off Reddit.
According to the press release, profiles with Collectable Avatars set as their profile image will also have a “glow-like effect” in the comment section.
📰 Other Highlights:
- Celsius Repays 143M In DAI Loans Since July 1. This is an extremely positive macro indicator for the cryptocurrency spectrum.
Pointing to the current scenario of the crypto market, a ‘Glassnode’ report suggests that the Bitcoin ‘Tourists’ have scattered away, leaving only the ‘Hodlers’ or true believers.
- With Argentina’s Minister of Economy resigning, Argentinians started hedging the currency risk by transferring a portion of their savings to Stablecoins.
Several DeFi tokens, including Aave and Lido, have shown strong gains following increased on-chain user activity.
How the tables have turned for the cryptocurrency market! The bloodbath over the past couple of weeks has subsided, and the market has recovered strongly. With the ‘Merge’ approaching closer, ETH happened to be the best performer among the crypto blue chips this week.
Most of the sectors witnessed a solid double digit growth over the past week. Decentralized exchanges and smart contract sectors emerged as the best performers. This is why sector based investing is a much more prudent investing strategy than investing in individual cryptos. Investing in sectors gives one the power of higher returns for the same or lower amount of risk.
Coin of the week 🤑💸
BTC managed to find a spot in our coin of the week after its price action pointed to some interesting action brewing. The 12-hour timeframe showed BTCUSD forming a descending triangle, considered to be a bullish pattern.
On a larger timeframe, we see a bullish divergence taking shape. On-chain metrics showed that whales were buying when Bitcoin was trading around $19,200, which proved to be a strong support.
