Welcome,

During another bearish week for crypto, the market showed its resilience and dropped by only 5%, proving that the domino effect has finally slowed down.

As we explore the most recent FUD, remember that for every “bad actor” that leaves the industry, another better one is more likely to take its place.

Let’s dive into this edition of Crypto Weekly.

Market update

The Binance USD (BUSD) coin has dropped to 11th place after losing another $2B from its market cap. At the time of writing, Bitcoin is trading at $22,373, sitting in a narrow range since the weekend, after losing around -5% in a flash, amid Silvergate Capital news.

A similar trend can be witnessed on Ethereum, currently at $1,564. Solana remains the top gainer since the start of the year among the top cryptocurrencies at a +108.96% ROI.

DeFi Weekly Stats

In this weekly review, we’ve lowered the requirement for our pools to TVL>$30M.

Top Stablecoin Yield Pools

The pool with the highest 30-day average APY belongs to Solidly V2, and it’s USDC-USDT at 22.46%. The second most profitable-looking protocol currently is Gains Network’s DAI pool at 14.88% 30-day average APY, followed by Credix’s USDC pool at 13.60%.

Top Blue-Chip Coins Yield Pools

Uniswap dominates the TVL>$30M category regarding blue chips. The Arbitrum-hosted pool WETH-USDC (0.05%) is currently at a 30-day average APY of 60.00%. The other two pools from the list look quite lucrative as well, at 36.92% and 28.40% 30-day average APY.

Top ETH Liquid Staking Derivatives Pools

Finally, there is not much change in Ethereum LSDs; as we’ve stated before that they are relatively stable in terms of APYs. However, there is a rising concern that the SEC might go after decentralized liquid staking after they are done with the centralized ones.

Final word

Crypto has survived many disasters.

Currently, there is an “Operation Choke Point 2.0,” in which the US government uses the banking sector to organize a sophisticated, widespread crackdown against the crypto industry, according to several publishers.

The three most widespread themes among analysts at the moment are (1) the importance of Ripple winning its case (making a precedent for all future SEC crypto lawsuits), (2) the unveiling behind the recent Binance rumors (stablecoins related in particular) and (3) an update in Tether’s allegations (more than we can count throughout the years).

Are you following any of these cases in close?
