The top ten projects with net inflows from IBC volume this week are: Osmosis, Cosmos hub, Axelar, Celestia, Kujira, Neutron, Stride, Akash and Terra.
ATOM performed better after the COSMOS hub proposal 848 was passed this week. With the announcement of founder Jae’s fork plan, the currency price fell back. For ATOM, reducing the inflation rate is a long-term positive, and investors do not like high-inflation tokens. For a long time, Atom itself has lacked the ability to capture value, and excessive inflation is one of the reasons for its continued low price. Interest in APR is also one of the few use cases for Atom.
The counter-argument is to reduce the staking reward from nearly 19% to 13%. A large APR drop could dissuade many stakers, posing a threat to the security of the network. Therefore, they argue that the inflation rate should not be suddenly halved in order to maintain a high level of safety.
Therefore, inflation has dropped but staking rewards have also decreased, network security is not protected to the greatest extent, and the community is divided. Cosmos co-founder Jae Kwon plans to fork Cosmos Hub after the community passes Proposal 848.
The fork will result in a new network, AtomOne, and the corresponding token ATOM 1. The launch plan includes releasing a large portion of the Genesis supply to those who oppose the proposal. Meanwhile, those who voted for the proposals will face cuts. Approximately 10% of the tokens will be pre-mined for various purposes, as Kwon stated in a document. Interchain Foundation will not be included in the airdrop.
The hard fork is expected to result in the largest airdrop of ATOM and could result in a significant increase in trading volume for ATOM and ATOM 1 tokens.
“Jae calls the new chain AtomOne (ATOM 1). Most of the allocation of ATOM 1 will be distributed proportionally to ATOM holders, it is unclear whether liquid ATOM is included.”
BTC maintained a wide range of fluctuations between 35,500 and 38,000 last week. This position has been oscillating for about two weeks, and spot trading volume is in a reduced state. Contract open interest fluctuated around $34 billion.
Over the past week, the contract still maintained high trading volume, but it was down from the previous week. Altcoins have retraced significantly, and contract trading sentiment has declined.
Along with the recovery of contract positions and trading volume, the trading volume of derivatives DEX has also recovered significantly. In the first two weeks of November 2023, the trading volume of derivatives DEX reached the fourth peak period in 2023, which was equivalent to the end of January, end of March, and early July of 2023. The weekly trading volume of DYDX exceeds US$10 billion, the second-tier GMX and Synthetix are about US$1.5 billion, and the third-tier ApolloX and MUX exceed US$500 million. During the week of November 20th to November 27th, transaction volume dropped significantly. The weekly trading volume of DYDX is approximately $6.2 billion, and that of GMX and Synthetix is approximately $900 million.
It can be seen that DYDX is still the leader in the derivatives DEX track, and GMX and Synthetix are in the second echelon. This pattern is relatively stable and no new strong competitors have emerged yet.
After experiencing rapid growth in the past two weeks, POW new concept coins have experienced a correction. Most POW tokens are in the early stages of development, with a market value of less than $50 million, and are traded on smaller exchanges, with larger rises and falls.
From the perspective of GPU/CPU computing power, due to large price fluctuations, computing power also fluctuates significantly. The tokens with the fastest price increases gain more computing power. ZEPH currently has more computing power than DNX and ranks first. NEXA surpassed ETC and RVN to become third. The computing power of XNA, RXD, ALPH, and CLORE projects has also increased rapidly.
NEXA and RXD focus on faster POW public chains, mainly driven by BCH community miners. XNA belongs to the AI+Internet of Things concept and has gained more than 5 times in the past week. ALPH is also a POW public chain. CLORE is a computing power rental platform, and its services include mining, rendering, and AI computing power.
