Week 13 June - 17 June 2022

Getting more furious at boomers laughing at us. I’d rather go to dust than getting laughed and mocked all my life - Mars Captain

🧠 Observations

  • Total MC broke 1T, going down in extreme bearish sentiments 📉
  • ETH-stETH crisis going on with 3AC and Celsius going down hand-in-hand happily together. 💑

💵 Stablecoin & Market Landscape

(Last 7 day average) Stablecoin market share remains EXTREME high in reference to the total crypto market capitalization. 15.64% of stablecoin (154.5B) on 0.99T crypto market.

Stablecoin % further jumped in the last 7 days, now at 15.64%. A significant uptick compared to last week.
Reminder, in mid-NOV 2021, this percentage was ~4% with a 3T total MC. Now we are at ~15% with a ~0.99T total MC.

There is never the ATH or ATL in crypto, it can always go higher or lower. This week we broke 1T. 😢
Reminder, we are at the lowest point in the last 365 days for three consecutive weeks already.
