All Markets On Full Blast 🚀

This is what we have been waiting for frens. All markets are pumping: BTC, ETH, NFTs, meme coins - you name it and it is probably up

As I type:

  • Bitcoin: broke $69,000 USD (just broke through all-time highs)

  • Ethereum: $3,731 USD, up 11.6% over 5 days

  • Solana: $131 USD, up 17.9% over 7 days

  • Global NFT Sales (7 day period): $463 million, up 36% since last week

💡 What’s Causing This?

Many are attributing this bull market to the institutional Bitcoin buying spree (which has been brought on by the recent Spot ETF approvals). At first, many thought the ETF approval was a “sell the news” event but that couldn’t be further from the truth. Already in just a matter of weeks, institutions are buying up as many Bitcoins as they possibly can. So far, it is reported that institutions own over 6% of the entire Bitcoin supply available.

💀 Here Come The Memes

Like bull runs in the past, a surge in Bitcoin price is usually quickly followed by meme/alt-coin explosions. For example, a coin named “dogwifhat” or simply $WIF has exploded in price and is up over 890% in the month. The coin was created around a viral photo of a dog with a knit hat.

Other meme coins such as Doge, MOG, SHIB, and PEPE are also up substantially in the past 7 days.
