Market overview

Bitcoin reached an all-time high of $73,777 on March 14th, but then it declined to a low of $68,555. It quickly recovered to $72,000, but couldn't hold that level and fell below $70,000. This points to three potential scenarios:

(1) If inflows to the BTC spot ETF and major funds continue, keeping the BTC price above $73,000 (targeting above $75,000), it will put pressure on users who previously shorted at highs. This type of trend often leads to a violent pin bar reversal. If more pinbars occur, the more important it is to pay attention to distribution at high levels by heavyweights.

(2) If BTC fluctuates between $70,000 and $73,000, it could be a build-up period for major investors. Major players love to use sell-offs to test the buying power below as well as breakouts to test market trend-following orders and floating chips. It's crucial to keep track of indices, including the BTC futures-spot price difference, the capital rate, and the frequency of BTC transfers to exchanges. 

(3) Should BTC fall below $70,000 without a quick rebound and break below $67,000, we may see a significant adjustment. To reduce the risk of heavy falls, flexible hedging at defined points would be helpful.

FHE (Fully Homomorphic Encryption) track

FHE is a type of encryption that allows calculations to be carried out on encrypted data, obtaining an encrypted result, without the need for decryption. This type of encryption enables the processing and calculations of data without decryption, thus protecting data privacy and security. User privacy protection is one of the most potent narratives in Web3. Here are some noteworthy projects within this track:

Zama: An open-source cryptography company that builds state-of-the-art FHE solutions for blockchain and AI. On March 7th, it announced the completion of a $73 million Series A funding round co-led by Multicoin Capital and Protocol Labs. Zama has a solution for blockchain transactions and a solution for data exchange around AI training and use. Zama's technology is key to building multi-user, privacy-preserving applications.

Privasea: Privasea's goal is to advance the pioneering integration of fully homomorphic encryption machine learning (FHEML) with distributed computing networks. The team is preparing to launch the world's first dApp leveraging FHE technology, ImHuman. ImHuman will use FHE to securely execute "proof of humanity", providing a reliable and tamper-proof method for verifying human users in the digital realm. Privasea has recently secured $5 million in funding with investors including Binance Labs, Gate Labs, and MH Ventures.

Mind Network: Mind Network provides end-to-end encryption for users and allows them full control over their personal data, financial transactions, and user interactions. It amalgamates zero-trust security ethos with zero-knowledge proof and in-house adaptive homomorphic encryption technology. This amalgamation provides strong protection and regulated access within the decentralized network. Recently, Mind Network raised a fund of $2.5 million with participation from Binance Labs and Comma3 Ventures.

Fhenix: Fhenix aims to be the first Layer 2 solution that supports FHE. The goal is to introduce encrypted data calculations to Ethereum. Fhenix's whitepaper was released on November 16, 2023, and it is still in its early stages.

Inconetwork: Inconetwork is a modular blockchain developer focused on confidentiality, committed to bringing confidentiality to decentralized applications. It can be compared with modular blockchain projects like Celestia and Lava, which respectively focus on data availability and access, while Inco focuses on encrypted privacy. In February, it announced $4.5 million in funding led by 1kx, with participation from Circle Ventures, GSR, and Polygon Ventures. 

BOME, a memecoin in the Solona ecosystem, gathers high popularity

BOME is a memecoin on the Solana chain initiated by crypto artist Darkfarms (@Darkfarms1). The project team has used the SOL earned in the pre-sale to increase liquidity. The token saw a single-day surge of 55 times, reaching a market value of $166 million, with on-chain liquidity of $24.85 million. The trading volume in the past 24 hours totaled $230 million, indicating a very high level of activity.

Echelon launched its first AI game Colony

Echelon Prime Foundation has announced the launch of its first AI simulation game built on the Solana network, Colony. Its previous game, Parallel, secured a $50 million investment from Paradigm in 2021. Given its solid background and excellent game production capability, the release of Colony is highly anticipated.
