Section 1: Market Overview
The crypto market remained resilient, with total market capitalization rising by 0.4% QoQ. From a price perspective, Bitcoin had a great quarter, while Avalanche outperformed in daily transactions and unique addresses. This chapter also highlights the risks associated with cryptocurrency trading and provides a link to risk warnings.
Section 2: the rise of Layer 1s
Layer 1s are the foundation of the crypto ecosystem, and they play a crucial role in the market’s growth. According to the report, the top-performing Layer 1s in Q2 were Solana, Binance Smart Chain, and Ethereum.
Solana was the clear winner, with a staggering 300% increase in price. Binance Smart Chain and Ethereum also performed well, with 70% and 20% price increases, respectively.
These Layer 1s outperformed Bitcoin, which only saw a 10% increase in price. This is a clear indication that Layer 1s are becoming increasingly important in the crypto market.
Section 3: the fall of DeFi
DeFi was one of the hottest trends in the crypto market in 2020, but it experienced a decline in Q2. The report suggests that this decline was due to a combination of factors, including the rise of Layer 1s, regulatory uncertainty, and the increasing popularity of NFTs.
Despite this decline, DeFi remains an important part of the crypto ecosystem, and it’s likely that we’ll see a resurgence in the coming months.
