Market overview

BTC rallied to $68,686, just 0.45% short of its all-time high.  BTC’s share in the total cryptocurrency market has reached 54.84%. As BTC's price approaches a strong breakout, BTC's dominance is expected to increase further. Copycat coins that had large advances in the previous period face short-term adjustments. Once a new high of BTC's price is broken, subsequent copycat coins will leech off BTC, driving up market trading enthusiasm. Be wary of the pullback risk after BTC hits a new high. launches final pledge activity

AI track

Memecoin track has exploded, usually reflecting a change in capital markets and risk preferences of users. From the perspective of early narratives and potential Alpha projects, AI track possesses strong growth traits and storytelling ability. Here are some projects to watch:

WLD: Founded by OpenAI's Sam Altman, Worldcoin aims to establish the largest and fairest digital identity and monetary system globally. It allows users to verify their uniqueness using biometrics and zero-knowledge-proof technology. Its unique positioning and background make it a leading project in the AI track. However, Worldcoin is currently under investigation by governments in South Korea, Hong Kong, and elsewhere. It currently ranks 103rd in market cap, with a value of $1.06 billion, a drop of 26% in the past week.

TAO: Bittensor(TAO) is a mining network that rewards users who contribute valuable data or computational resources with tokens. With the introduction of the BIT1 proposal, user attention to this project has continued to rise. Bittensor proposes a shift from a single-token framework to a multi-token system. In the future, each subnet may produce its own token, with limits on the number of subnets. Users can exchange TAO and subnet tokens at will. The daily emission of TAO will also be allocated to different subnets. TAO aims to make each network's ETH equivalent to the ERC20 token, while BIT1 introduces a subnet staking policy, adding more possibilities to the Bittensor ecosystem. Currently, it ranks 34th in market cap, with a value of $4.17 billion, up  15% in the past week. 

RNDR: The Render Network is a GPU computing network that allows users to use their RNDR tokens to access additional computing power for cloud rendering scenarios. Render currently ranks 47th in market cap, with a value of $2.68 billion, up 12% over the past week.

EdgeCloud is touted as one of the most advanced decentralized software platforms in the edge computing industry. EdgeCloud provides developers, researchers, and businesses of all sizes with limitless GPU processing power to execute any AI or video task. This power is equivalent to the combined processing capabilities of 250 NVIDIA A100s, made possible by running nodes across the Theta community. Today, the governance token THETA ranks 49th in market cap with a value of $2.59 billion, and it has risen 100% in the past week. The payment token TFUEL ranks 151st with a market cap of $580 million, up 85% in the past week.
