Why is the market becoming more and more optimistic about BTC?



It's been another record week for U.S. markets, with both the Dow and S&P 500 hitting new all-time highs on Friday. In fact, it was the fifth time in the past six sessions that the S&P 500 hit a record. For the Dow, it was the second time in the past week. Gains were fairly broad, with industrials, retail and technology stocks all working together to drive the market higher. To put all of this record into perspective, consider -- Bank of America research found that investors have put more money into stocks in the last 5 months than they have put into the previous 12 years -- a total of $576 billion U.S. dollars, not $452 billion.

The hottest stock in the market right now is Coinbase, North America's largest cryptocurrency exchange, which plans to go public via a direct listing on April 14. While the record was set for the week, trading was subdued again, with volume 28% below the 30-day average. All told, the Dow climbed 2% for the week, the S&P 500 climbed 2.7%, notching its best week since early February, and the Nasdaq rose 3.1%.

The U.S. dollar index has closely tracked changes in U.S. 10-year Treasury yields this week. The rise in yields earlier on Friday pushed the DXY up from yesterday's low of 92.00 to an intraday high of 92.40, before yields turned lower and the DXY retreated and is now trading around 92.20. Overall, it was a disappointing week for benchmark index bulls, who continued to track losses on renewed optimism about stocks.

A final word on cryptocurrencies – digital assets continue to maintain a bullish sentiment. The only difference recently is that Alt Coin took the lead, and Ethereum made a new history and approached $2,200. Bitcoin has lagged behind its contemporaries lately, but continues to consolidate around the $60,000 price range. If the bullish sentiment persists over the weekend, BTC could break the previous ATH again. A cumulative market cap of more than $2 trillion is another shot in the arm for cryptocurrencies this week.

And while we're talking about cryptocurrencies, today's feature infographic (above) is also about cryptocurrencies. According to research by Ark Invest, investors are holding onto Bitcoin for longer and longer. By holding on to assets rather than selling them, it reduces the supply of coins available in the market at any given moment, driving prices up. This suggests that market participants see the long-term value and potential future returns that the asset holds.

And before we move on to some other weekly stats, here is the weekly and YTD data as usual for the market (Chart 1).

Solana Co-creation: The latest outage is caused by misconfigured validators confusing the network and unable to judge the correct fork: Jinse Finance reported that Solana co-founder Anatoly Yakovenko explained the recent outbreak of network outages in the latest interview. He revealed the cause of the outage One reason is that a misconfigured validator confused the Solana network and was unable to determine which fork was the correct one, eventually bringing the network down. Anatoly Yakovenko emphasized that a Solana network outage does not put any user's funds or program state at risk, because Solana has 2,000 different validators and about 3,400 different replicas of the network, so in the event of a serious failure, there are a large number of Backups are optional. Anatoly Yakovenko claims that as long as one of these replicas survives, the entire network can be effectively restored.

Since its launch in 2020, the Solana blockchain has seen five major outages, three of which occurred in 2022, each due to a bug in Solana's code or network. Anatoly Yakovenko believes that the current problems with Solana can largely be attributed to human error. This is still software written by humans, and Solana is quite complicated.

The price of private equity is getting higher and higher. As such, the average deal today is expected to be priced at a premium relative to the past decade on an EV/EBITDA metric.
