Microstrategy Proceeding to Buy More Crypto: Unusual or Smart Move?
“MicroStrategy is the only Bitcoin spot exchange fund in the United States.” This was a statement MicroStrategy CEO Michael Saylor made at the Bitcoin 2022 conference in Miami. He also stated that “we are comparable to our nonexistent spot ETF.” The SEC approved ETFs that track futures contracts. However, they haven’t authorized the use of digital currency. This allows investors to invest in Bitcoin without signing up on an exchange, creating a cryptocurrency wallet, or handling complications associated with Bitcoin. “If a spot ETF existed, its fee ratio would be 1%, and it would not employ leverage. “We use MicroStrategy to convert cash flows of software companies into Bitcoin.” Saylor indicates that the tax-free profit of the MicroStrategy Bitcoin spot ETF is between 4% and 5%. Saylor founded MicroStrategy in 1989, and they have been adding Bitcoin to their balance sheet for the past two years. The company has spent close to $4 billion on Bitcoin, which costs an average of $30,700 per unit. Normalizing Bitcoin-backed Finance MicroStrategy added Bitcoin to its balance sheet in August 2020, which wasn’t so popular then. The coin was worth around $11,000 at the time. Institutional investors and Wall Street companies were sceptical of digital assets at the time. However, they later thought Saylor’s made a wise decision. The price of Bitcoin increased dramatically in October 2020. This made fund managers like Stanley Druckenmille...

Funding Rates Fall To Yearly Lows Following Bitcoin’s Fall Below $29,000
Bitcoin has had a rough couple of weeks leading up to this moment and the effects of this are still being felt all across the board. This has seen bitcoin’s price crumble below $30,000 once more. Along with this fall has come some other brutal news for the digital asset. One of these has been the funding rates, whose massive dive has shown increasingly bearish momentum among the largest traders. Funding Rates Take A Dive The Bitcoin funding rates had been in a bit of a lull even as the price of BTC had begun taking its beat-down at the $40,000 level. Mostly, it had remained neutral or below neutral so the sudden drop in funding rates is no surprise. However, the degree to which it had dropped had been more cause for concern. This time around, funding rates have taken a nosedive that has sent them towards yearly lows. Related Reading | How The Tether Peg Could Predict Raging Bitcoin Volatility Arcane Research reports that the plunge had come in the midst of the sell-offs that had rocked the market last week. This had seen funding rates drop across major exchanges in the space. Most notably on May 12th when the funding rate had fallen to a -0.0042% on the biggest exchange, Binance. Funding rates decline to yearly lows | Source: Arcane Research An interesting note is that funding rates, despite trending in the negative territory, have not been this low since July of 2021. This means that this is the most significant dip...

Ripples in the Crypto Economy: Could Stablecoins Be to Blame?
Stablecoins are a type of digital currency. The developers designed them to maintain their value over time and linked them to a fiat currency, usually the US dollar. In this configuration, one unit of cryptocurrency equals one fiat currency unit. In contrast to extremely volatile cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, the value of stablecoin is constant. However, due to recent events in the stablecoin market, like the crash of TerraUSD, the government is actively investigating this sector. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen has stated that stablecoins threaten financial stability. In addition, the Federal Reserve issued a paper condemning the lack of transparency and regulation in the stablecoin market. What are Stablecoins? Stablecoins are cryptocurrencies that have their value connected to another asset. Most of the time, the other asset is fiat money, such as the US dollar or the euro. The coin’s value remains stable over time, at least in proportion to its linked currency. This is because the underlying asset’s value remains constant. In some ways, it’s as if the underlying asset, such as a dollar, has been transformed into a computer file. They back up stablecoin by the asset to which it links because they aim to track an asset. A company that produces a stablecoin, for example, will regularly set up a reserve with a financial institution that owns the asset on which the stablecoin is based. Most cryptocurrencies, such as Bitcoin...
