Market Overview

The US released adjusted March CPI figures, with an annual rate of 3.5%, surpassing the anticipated 3.4% mark, the highest since September 2023. Following the release, BTC, gold, and silver all fell. The cryptocurrency market had already factored in the CPI data, evident from BTC's dip a day before the announcement. BTC briefly rallied to $71,172 before settling around $70,900. The market closely watches BTC's potential to breach $71,800 again and the strength of the $67,300 support level.


As of April 10th, data show that the total net inflow of BTC spot ETF is $12.66 billion, with a single-day net inflow of $9.041 million, and a single-day trading volume of $3.01 billion. The net assets of the ETF account for 4.27% of the BTC market value, with the main observations:

GBTC: The daily net outflow was $174 million, and the cumulative net outflow amounted to $15.98 billion. The daily turnover reached $620 million, and the net asset value stood at $22.12 billion.

IBIT: The daily net inflow totaled $34 million. The cumulative net inflow reached $14.953 billion. The daily turnover data and asset value have not been updated yet.

FBTC: The daily net inflow totaled $76.31 million. The cumulative net inflow reached $8.04 billion. The daily turnover data is $592 million, and the current asset value reached $10.6 billion.

MUBI attracts investors' attention

Multibit, positioned as a dual-sided bridge, frees up liquidity of BRC20 assets within the EVM ecosystem. Recently, Multibit brought the BTC ecosystem's meme PUPS liquidity over to the Solana ecosystem. On April 11th, Multibit hinted at a collaboration with runes in a post, leaving much room for user speculation. The token MUBI, starting from its bottom at a fully diluted valuation (FDV) of $100 million, has surged by 90% in 5 days. Multibit's overall valuation is not high, attracting investor attention.

Gearbox Protocol is a potentially good investment candidate

Gearbox Protocol, a leveraged lending protocol based on the Ethereum network, has shown notable performance lately. With a core design that bridges depositors and borrowers via credit accounts, Gearbox interacts with various DeFi protocols, offering up to 10x leverage. Recent collaborations with Etherfi, Renzo, Kelp, and Ethena have significantly boosted users' point-earning efficiency. The protocol's Total Value Locked (TVL) now exceeds $400 million. Meanwhile, its GEAR token, boasting a market cap of $175 million, has climbed from a minor 0.006 USDT to a considerable 0.034 USDT. Given its ongoing momentum, Gearbox Protocol continues to be an important candidate for investor attention.

ENA presents growth prospects

Ethena Labs's current Total Value Locked (TVL) is $2.33 billion, with sUSDe APY reaching 37.1%. Considering the futures-spot arbitrage volume on major exchanges like Binance and OKX, the issuance range of USDe is predicted to be between 80 to 150 billion, indicating a potential for 4-7 times growth from the current position. The market capitalization of the ENA token has hit $2.07 billion, bringing the total valuation to $21.8 billion. While the valuation of ENA seems high from its current perspective, the overall return of USDe is considerably high and presents further growth prospects. This drives the continuous price increase of the ENA token.
