Annually, $BTC volatility has dropped below that of top tech stocks, including $TSLA, $META, and $NVDA.

What does this mean for #Bitcoin? 🧵 Image
👉 #Bitcoin's 1-year realized volatility is 44.88%, compared to over 50% for top tech stocks among the "magnificent seven". This signals #BTC's growth toward becoming a more mature and stable asset class.
👉 #Bitcoin's early years saw high volatility (over 200%), common for new assets with rapid growth & limited capital. Image
👉 #Bitcoin’s recent price action closely mirrors #gold's in its early years, with an initial period of high volatility followed by gradual subsidence as the market matures. Image
👉 @Fidelity's researcher Zack Wainwright explains: "Bitcoin was nearly half as volatile in 2024 at $60,000 when compared with 2021. When putting this all together, a thesis pointing toward a growing acceptance of Bitcoin due to potential maturation begins to emerge."
@Fidelity 👉 So what's next? Historically, the period of lower volatility has come before major price increases. Do you think history will repeat itself? Image
@Fidelity 👉 @BlackRock's Robert Mitchnick predicts institutional giants like sovereign & pension funds will engage with spot #Bitcoin ETFs in the coming months.

Institutional investors prefer lower volatility for more predictable returns that fit their risk management strategies.
@Fidelity @BlackRock With volatility dropping, what do you think will happen to the $BTC price in the coming weeks? 💬

What is liquid staking, and how does it work? Let’s dive in! 💧🔒
Liquid staking solves the liquidity issue of traditional staking by using substitute tokens, allowing your #crypto to remain active in DeFi platforms. This means you can stake and still trade or transfer your assets 💱.
Comparing delegated and liquid staking: 🔄

Delegated Proof-of-Stake (DPoS) involves voting for delegates to validate blocks, and centralizing control. Liquid staking offers more accessibility and liquidity, avoiding lock-ups and high barriers like #Ethereum's 32 ETH minimum. Image

What is anti-dumping policy in crypto? 🧵 👇 Image
An anti-dumping policy is designed to safeguard #crypto investors from pump-and-dump schemes, in which organized entities or individuals artificially inflate a crypto token’s price and then sell off their holdings for a profit, leaving investors with losses. Image
Anti-dumping regulations restrict buying or selling large quantities of tokens in one transaction, limit orders for the entire supply, apply value limitations or set up daily limits or price caps.

Commodities vs. securities: Key differences. Let's go🧵 👇 Image
Commodities are raw materials or basic goods that can be bought and sold. Some commodities represent ownership of a physical product, such as a bag of grain or a barrel of crude oil. Commodity markets respond to supply and demand dynamics in the physical global market.
However, not all commodities are physical, tangible assets. For example, electricity does not have a tangible physical form but can still be traded as a commodity based on its supply and demand. Image

How is #Bitcoin priced? Here's a explainer thread 🧵 👇 Image
The fundamental economic principle of supply and demand plays a crucial role in BTC's valuation. Bitcoin has a 21M coin hard cap on its supply, introducing scarcity to the digital currency. Miners will no longer receive new BTC for verifying transactions once that cap is reached.
Similarly, an event called the #BitcoinHalving halves the reward for mining new blocks every four years (approximately), reducing the rate at which new BTC enters the market supply. As supply growth slows, if demand remains steady or increases, it can lead to higher prices. Image
