Terra и Sol Invictus
Terra and Sol Invictus join forces for new bond offering.
Invictus is excited to offer UST bonds as part of a new partnership between Invictus DAO and Terraform Labs. Through this partnership, Invictus DAO can begin shifting treasury toward high-quality stable assets and away from centralized stablecoins like USDC and USDT.
Moreover, with the addition of high-quality treasury assets such as UST, Invictus DAO will be able to accept higher-risk assets into its treasury and begin to accumulate key parts of Solana's decentralized financial infrastructure.

Assessment combines altcoin price performance relative to bitcoin and social performance
Grayscale Fund Portfolio Dynamics
- Stock to flow
This model views bitcoin as a commodity comparable to commodities such as gold, silver, or platinum. These commodities are known as "stored value commodities" as they retain their value over time due to their relative scarcity.
For commodities of value like gold, platinum, or silver, the high ratio indicates that they are not mostly 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.
Bitcoin enters the Buy Zone when its value is compared to the level of consumption and wastage of fiat currencies.
The bottom signal has only flashed 5 times in Bitcoin's history.
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.
