Steaker Monthly Report (2022/05/11–2022/06/10)

Market Recap:

Since late March, we went through bloody nine consecutive red weeks. After the bloody days, the market finally closed a weekly candle in green. However, it’s a relatively uninspiring rebound with a weekly gain of 1.53% only, showing the buying demand is lukewarm. Meanwhile, the investors are shouldering lots of losses, especially the short-term holders (STHs). Based on the current price, almost all buyers since January 2021 are underwater.

Over the past month, the BTC was stuck in a sideways range between $32,000 and $28,000 and retested the resistance line of $32,000 twice. However, the market seems not to enter the fully-scale capitulation scenario, which implies a higher probability to end the bear market. Based on the data from Glass Node, the current BTC realized price hits around $23,600, while there is space for a further 21.33% decrease from $30,000. Notably, there are only 15.1% of trading days have closed below the realized price. Meanwhile, the current BTC price only decreases by 58% from the recent ATH, while at the end of the 2018–2019 bear market and the March 2020 COVID crash stood at 83% and 75%, respectively.

Last month, BTC prices traded between a new monthly low of $26,700 and a local high of $32,399, while ETH prices traded between a new monthly low of $1,703 and a local high of $2,451.

According to CoinGecko, the top 100 DeFi tokens’ market cap significantly declined from $78.30bn on May 10 to $49.3bn at the time of writing, down 36.92% MoM. The DeFi dominance in the crypto space currently sits at 3.8%, a net decrease of 1.3 ppts from the previous month.

According to DeFi Llama, the total value locked (TVL) also surged from $161.52bn to the current level of $106.15bn, dropping 34.28% MoM. Around 6.20mm ETH and 161.2k BTC are locked in DeFi respectively, at the time of writing, citing data from DeFi Pulse.
