Stablecoins In Smart Contracts, Axie Infinity Explodes, Uniswap Grows DEX Dominance

Market Update

On a day that marks the monthly close, the market appears indecisive and rangebound even with strong performance across the board yesterday. Bearish and unsupportive takes on crypto in the house hearings did not help.

Stablecoin Circulating Supply % In Smart Contracts

  • DAI – the DeFi native stablecoin dominates the contest with 60% of circulating supply deposited into smart contracts. 2nd place goes to USDC with approximately 45%.
  • Less than 20% of Tether in circulation are deposited into smart contracts on Ethereum, most likely due to its wide use as the de-facto stablecoin for transacting on centralized exchanges.

Puell Multiple Reaches Lower Band

  • The Puell Multiple is calculated by dividing the daily issuance value of bitcoins (in USD) by the 365-day moving average of daily issuance value.
  • Historically, when the Puell Multiple has reached the lower band (<0.5), it has historically presented great buying opportunities for BTC. That being said, it’s also given false signals (see Q1 2018). Price also tends to consolidate and even decline before recovering.

Axie Infinity Flips DeFi In Google Volume ?

  • Axie Infinity and its innovative play-to-earn model are taking the world by storm. Google searches for Axie Infinity is following a parabolic trajectory and has flipped DeFi searches in June 2020.
  • Unsurprisingly, this surge in search volume is in line with Axie Infinity’s explosive traction (we have an in-depth report on Axie we’re dropping very shortly so definitely stay tuned). We’re pretty confident your mind will be blown by our analysts’ findings.
