0/ Is another NFT season upon us?

In today’s Delphi Daily, we examine @opensea’s hot start to the year, the floor prices of popular NFT projects, implied volatility of $ETH and $BTC, plus @convexfinance contributing to $FXS growth.

1/ @OpenSea started off the year with an explosion in trading volume and active traders. Over the past few days, daily volume has averaged around $200M – $250M.

This level of trading volume was last seen during the Aug. to Sep. 2021 NFT bull market.
2/ The @BoredApeYC floor has decisively flipped #CryptoPunks and is now 27% higher at 77.99 ETH. Meanwhile, Punks have dipped to a 60.95 ETH floor.

PhantaBear is the talk of the town this week, with its floor price growing from 0.34 ETH on Jan. 1 to 6.17 ETH today.
3/ Implied Volatility has compressed over the last couple of months, and it’s continuing to do so going into 2022.

As the market seems to be sustaining its trend lower, this is not all that surprising.
4/ Since @Convexfinance launched its cvxFXS platform, deposits of FXS have grown to over 2.5M (or ~$94M) during a span of 2.5 weeks.

$FXS price has doubled over the same time horizon.

0/ Is BTC correlated with S&P 500?

In todays Delphi Daily, we examine a correlation between $BTC and $SPX, @POKTnetwork gaining attention, @GMX_IO’s increase in trading volume, and @Cowswap_finance’s big month.

For more 🧵👇 Image
1/ Over the past month, the correlation between $BTC and $SPX has increased, as both risk assets were similarly affected by hawkish Fed comments

BTC has a historically low correlation with equity markets. However, since 2020, we have seen traditional players enter crypto markets Image
2/ @POKTnetwork has been gaining attention lately as it has been adopting and providing RPC access to multiple chains.

Pocket Network enables another layer of decentralization through its multi-chain relay protocol, removing reliance on centralized nodes and cloud services. Image

0/ We couldn't be more excited to announce that we, @Delphi_Digital, are co-leading Fan Controlled Sports Entertainment’s @fcflio Series A with @animocabrands.

This is a wild one so buckle up. Image
1/ FCSE’s first product is Fan Controlled Football - a fan-controlled sports league in which fans call the plays.

Yes, with real players and real fans.

Behind the insanity lies a vision that has the potential to entirely reshape entertainment and fan experience as we know it.
2/ It's best to view FCSE as an entertainment company and not a sports league.

An entertainment company acutely curated for Web 3.0 with a video-game-like sports experience as its core product.

0/ Can OpenSea be overthrown?

In today’s Delphi Daily, we analyze the launch of @LookRareNFT, the top performers of the past month, short term holder SOPR, and TVL on the Metis Andromeda.

For more 🧵👇 Image
1/ @LooksRareNFT launched yesterday with a surprise airdrop to users who traded at least 3 ETH in volume on @opensea.

Day 1 of LooksRare’s activity shows that its volume was comparable to OpenSea during certain hours of the day, with two peaks of $4.5M hourly volume. Image
2/ $NEAR and $ATOM have been the top performers in the past month amidst a gloomy market.

Other L1 projects either stayed flat or had a -20% to -40% drawdown since the 1st of December 2021. Image

0/ The Bitcoin Fear & Greed Index just hit lowest level since last July.

In today’s Delphi Daily, we analyzed how December’s Fed meeting minutes impacted global markets, recent liquidations, market fear, and gas spikes on @0xpolygon.

For more 🧵👇
1/ December’s Fed meeting minutes released yesterday pointed towards quicker and more aggressive rate hikes than expected.

Risk assets like equities and crypto assets reacted swiftly to the news, tumbling after the minutes were released.
2/ The risk-off sentiment was present as well in crypto markets, and leveraged long traders were liquidated on downward price movements; $850M of positions got liquidated in the past 18 hrs.

The FOMC minutes were released at 2pm EST yesterday, triggering the initial sell-off.

0/ So far in 2022, Fantom’s daily transactions have outpaced Avalanche.

In today’s Delphi Daily, we examined @FantomFDN’s recent transaction spike, the percentage of short and long term BTC holders in profit, and open interest on the perps markets.

For more 🧵👇
1/ @FantomFDN surpassed @Avalancheavax in daily transactions at the start of 2022.

As the narrative rotates to Fantom, it’s not surprising to see it reflected in transactions.

Opportunistic capital moved over to yield farm with high yields on stablecoins of around ~30-60% APR
2/ As BTC trends downward in recent weeks, more short-term holders (STH) of spot BTC have been holding at a loss.

Currently, only 11% of STHs are in profit.

87.4% of long-term holders (LTH) are still in profit following the run-up last year.

0/ The top 10 L1s and dApps by TVL.

In today’s Delphi Daily, we examined the top L1 chains and decentralized applications according to TVL.

We also took a look at $BTC and $ETH options, as well as how the Fed fund futures could impact BTC.

For more 🧵👇 Image
1/ The amount of capital locked grew exponentially year-on-year on chains like @terra_money (356x) and @0xPolygon (17,100x) while newer chains like @cronos_chain and @arbitrum that launched in the later half of 2021 managed to eke their way into the top 10 list. Image
2/ Among the top 10 biggest dApps by TVL, apps native to Ethereum still dominate, but multi-chain protocols such as @LidoFinance and @MultichainOrg have made their way onto the list.

DeFi “blue chips”, which fell out of favour in 2021, still managed to retain some top spots. Image
