CZ has departed as the head of Binance following a settlement with the DOJ. Despite being a sad day for crypto, a black swan event involving Binance was the last cloud of uncertainty hanging over the market.

Headed into 2024 with a Bitcoin ($BTC) Spot ETF likely approved in January and the halving coming months later set against the backdrop of rate cuts and further liquidity injections, investors need to shake off their bear market bias.

A classic gauge for institutional interest in Bitcoin is the GBTC discount/ premium. Entities pay over the market price when sentiment is bullish and can squeeze a discount during the bear.

The GTBC premium flipping to discount marked the start of the end, and similarly, the discount closing hints that the bull market has been underway for months. Worth noting that the GBTC is an inferior product to a Spot ETF. When/ if the discount closes to -5% the juice probably isn’t worth the squeeze for larger investors.

Welcome to the Rainforest Stack. A guide for the intrepid into the dynamic world of DeFi yield.

Constituted of four distinct layers: undergrowth, understory, canopy, and the emergent layer. Each layer boasts a different level of risk broadly categorized in line with the Lindy effect- the longer something has survived, the more likely its continued existence becomes.

An impact with oversized ramifications in the crypto space where hundreds of new protocols live and die each quarter.
