Market overview 

Bitcoin (BTC) has dropped below $70,000, reaching approximately $68,700. The current trend aligns with previous observations that halving often leads to temporary breakout trends that are likely followed by a fallback. It's important to note that, if post-halving benefits have been fully realized and BTC then drops below a critical range of $66,000-$67,000, there's a substantial probability it could continue to slide towards its prior low between $60,770-$62,260.


As of April 9th, the total net inflow of BTC spot ETF was at $12.24 billion, with a single-day net outflow of $148 million, and a single-day trading volume of $2.91 billion. The net assets of the ETF accounted for 4.25% of the BTC market value, with the main observations:

Those in possession of PUPS NFT can look forward to future airdrops from Runestone, causing high levels of anticipation. This native token PUPS, originating in the BTC ecosystem and boasting enhanced liquidity in the Solana environment through a cross-chain bridge, set a precedent for future Runestone airdrop models that could potentially be employed by more projects.
