The 3AC fund filed for bankruptcy and dragged the Voyager fund, which also went bankrupt after a 90% drop in assets under management.
Celsius, which was also under market pressure and was on the verge of liquidation in the MakerDAO credit protocol, started to repay its debt and thus reduced the risk of liquidation of funds under management.
These events brought some positivity to the market, and the Alameda fund stopped its pressure by sinking several competitors. Nevertheless, their goal is to monopolize the overall market as much as possible, and we believe there will be several more market shocks ahead of us, therefore we shouldn't let our guard down.

Grayscale fund portfolio dynamics
- Stock to flow
This model views Bitcoin as a commodity comparable to those like gold, silver, or platinum. These commodities are known as "stored value commodities" because they retain their value over time due to their relative scarcity.
For commodities of value, such as gold, platinum, or silver, a high ratio indicates that they are not primarily consumed for industrial purposes. Instead, much of it is held as a cash hedge, resulting in a higher stock-to-flow ratio.
A higher ratio indicates that the commodity is becoming increasingly scarce and therefore more valuable as a store of value.
How to look at the chart?
In the above chart, the price is overlaid on top of the stock-to-flow ratio line. We can see that the price continues to follow bitcoin's stock-to-flow ratio over time. Thus, the theory suggests that we are able to predict where the price might go by observing the projected stock-to-flow ratio line, which can be calculated because we know the approximate timeline for bitcoin production in the future.
The colored dots on the price line of this chart show the number of days until the next bitcoin halving event. It's an event during which the reward for mining new blocks is halved, meaning miners get 50% less bitcoins for checking transactions.
- BTC OnChain
Despite the panic, the number of Bitcoin addresses with a balance of more than 0.01 BTC has reached 10 million.
Positive funding rates imply that speculators are bullish, and long-traders pay funds to short-traders.
Negative funding rates mean that speculators are bearish, and short-traders pay funds to long-traders.
P.S. Funding rates (0.01%) - black, this is a neutral situation. Funding rates (below 0.01%) - green, this is a bullish situation. Funding rates (above 0.01%) - red, it is a bearish situation. The stronger the bearish or bullish sentiment, the darker the color.
