Ecosystem Update June 24

Dear investors,

We're excited to present our June 2024 Ecosystem Update. This comprehensive document delves into the latest market trends, highlights key milestones in the Advanced Blockchain ecosystem, and showcases recent developments within our organization. Additionally, it offers an in-depth overview of our progress and the broader industry landscape.

Macro Industry View

The overall crypto market continues to show a strong support standing above the $2.3 trillion market cap, underscoring the continuation of the uptrend sentiment within the market. Bitcoin and Ethereum dominate this market, comprising 66.9% of the total, with Bitcoin at $1.25 trillion (49.9%) and Ethereum at $421 billion (17.0%).

According to the latest CoinGecko market research, Crypto assets, including Bitcoin and Ethereum, managed to outperform most of the Magnificent Seven stocks in terms of market cap over the past 5 years. 

The Magnificent Seven stocks refer to companies that dominate a particular market space, gaining momentum to continue growing and acquiring startups that may later pose a threat. These companies also tend to become more efficient in scaling their products, further entrenching their market positions. The Magnificent Seven includes Apple (AAPL), Microsoft (MSFT), Alphabet (GOOGL), Meta Platforms (META), (AMZN), Nvidia (NVDA), and Tesla (TSLA).

Furthermore, on June 28, 21Shares submitted an S-1 application to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission for a spot Solana ETF, named the 21Shares Core Solana ETF. This marks the second application for a spot SOL ETF, following VanEck’s filing on June 27. The price of SOL surged from $139 to $150 following the news of the VanEck filing.

The ETF will be listed on the Cboe BZX Exchange, with Coinbase acting as the custodian for the Solana holdings, which will be privately insured. The fund’s assets will be stored in segregated wallets on the Solana blockchain.

The US elections will play a vital role in the advancement of the adoption and final approval of pending ETFs, including the ones for Ethereum and Solana right now. Statements from Donald Trump on his support for digital assets and acceptance of cryptocurrencies donations underscores the shift in sentiment and political environment around digital assets, which could benefit the industry at large.
