Highlights: Expansion of CBDCs, Potential increased regulation over derivatives markets ahead, The majority of countries have announced development of central bank digital currencies (CBDC) with what seemed like PR activities to generate momentum. In the UK and EU, these initiatives are now gaining traction and getting closer to implementation. The ECB, which is at the forefront of digital innovation, has moved to provide assurances to the public, particularly surrounding the programmability and privacy of the new digital Euro. This was in response to public concerns that the CBDC is a move to replace cash in order to gain oppresive oversight into how, when and where the money is being spent. On this front, the UK has also announced it is hiring a lead within the Treasury to handle the CBDC rollout, seeking to position itself as a crypto hub. Crypto derivatives markets, which are heavily used on centralized exchanges such as Binance, Kucoin and Bybit, may see choppy waters ahead. The ISDA (International Swaps and Derivatives Association) is releasing two papers on the legal and solvency risk of such products. Since exchange derivatives markets have recently become more restrictive to retail users in the US, Canada and UK, these papers may lay the groundwork for further tightening. Meanwhile, the ongoing centralization concern stemming from collapses like FTX continues to push participants on-chain, where protocols such as ...

Crypto markets recently trended higher from 2022 lows, shrugging off some negative news such as the bankruptcy filing of Genesis, a major US crypto trading and lending firm. With that, the elephant in the room has become the health of DCG, parent company to Genesis, with questions rightly asked if the behemoth Greyscale BTC and ETH trusts will fall next. If the trusts, which hold sizable chunks of 3%+ of BTC and 2.5% of ETH supplies, would be required to unwind, it would likely slap down any short-term efforts on a continued rally. Under the surface, governments and large institutions continue to set the landscape for how crypto and blockchain will touch TradFi. BIS has proposed formal research on how DeFi can support and safely integrate with traditional finance, citing the net benefit of less friction in the financial system. Meanwhile, the National Bank of Australia joins others in the “Big 4” in issuing a stablecoin to streamline cross-border remittances and trading of carbon credits. Finally, the EU saw a further delay to its final vote on the generally welcomed MiCA rules which will surely set back real-world adoption and innovation as market actors wait for a recognized regulatory framework amongst member countries. — News. — Genesis’ Crypto Lending Businesses File for Bankruptcy Protection, EU postpones final vote on MiCA for the second time in two months, FTX CEO says he is exploring rebooting the...

Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies experienced a substantial surge in value last week, in response to positive consumer price index (CPI) numbers. This was a welcome turnaround for investors who have been waiting for a reprieve, and who have been pushing the “there is no one left to sell” thesis. The thesis is largely due to the cryptocurrency market's large-scale retail and institutional capitalization in 2022, which led to forced selling, and deposits being tied up in lengthy bankruptcy proceedings. However, some remain cautious about the rally, citing continued layoffs in traditional sectors, mixed earning reports by major investment banks, and ongoing crackdowns. Recently, Nexo, a long-standing crypto-backed loan lender, was reportedly investigated by authorities in Bulgaria, and both Gemini and Genesis (DCG) were charged by the US SEC during an ongoing “who done it” Twitter spat. — News. — Bitcoin price rally over $21K prompts analysts to explore where BTC price might go next, Nexo offices reportedly raided by police in Bulgaria, New York-based bank exits crypto after a tumultuous year, Digital Currency Group under investigation by US authorities, — Regulation. — El Salvador passes landmark crypto bill, paving way for Bitcoin-backed bonds, Silvergate hit with another class-action suit, this time for securities law violations, Hong Kong watchdog aims to restrict retail traders to l...

The start of 2023 provided our industry with little respite as noteworthy crypto events continued to make headlines. Grayscale ETH and BTC Trusts have seen their discounts steadily trend downwards to new lows, inflaming concerns regarding the trust’s ability to remain viable. At the same time, Huobi, one of the world’s largest crypto exchanges, has confirmed it is laying off 20% of its workforce. This news has caused speculation that the company may be facing insolvency. One of the only US onshore crypto-friendly banks, Silvergate Bank, has been hit with more bad news as Moody’s downgraded its ratings. This came on the back of a major slide in Silvergate’s share price, following the FTX fiasco and significant customer withdrawals. Finally, US authorities are turning their attention to other core members of FTX who were in the infamous “wire fraud” group chat; Nishad Singh is now in the sights of regulators due to his suspected involvement in the multi-billion dollar fraud. — News. — Grayscale ETH trust nears record 60% discount as nerves continue over DCG, Huobi confirms 20% layoffs, denies insolvency rumors, Silvergate gets more bad news as Moody’s slashes its ratings, US authorities are turning their attention to FTX’s Nishad Singh, — Regulation. — Alex Mashinsky sued by NY AG for allegedly hiding Celsius’ ‘dire financial condition, Singapore’s lobbyists oppose proposed bl...

Product Update: Automated Vaults

Dear alpacas, Today, we’re thrilled to show you around, as we take you on a short visit of our hypothetical “Automated Vaults Lab.” 😄 First, let’s start with an update. We have successfully rolled out repurchasing to all the planned AVs in November, and sunsetted the non-performing vaults. Despite the market downturn in November-December where we saw BTC drop ~20%, our AVs have performed well, returning as high as ~25% APY (on an annualized basis) on some vaults.Data as of 4 January 2023; numbers in parentheses represent annualized return Over the past few months, our team continuously worked to improve the effectiveness of the repurchasing mechanism. Since its algorithms have become more complex than the previous rebalancing system, we would like to take this opportunity to explain in more detail how the hedging operation and repurchasing work. — How does repurchasing work? How does it differ from rebalancing? - The ultimate goal of repurchasing and rebalancing are the same: to eliminate the delta exposure of Automated Vaults due to changes in asset prices (aka hedging). However, there are several aspects where repurchasing and rebalancing differ, which we discuss below: — Rule:. — Rebalancing: The rule for rebalancing was very simple and straightforward. If the debt ratio > threshold, a rebalance was triggered. The drawback of this method was that it was relatively inflexible and only back...

In the aftermath of the FTX collapse, regulators all over the globe have dived into action, calling for further licensing, guidance, and even outright bans. Canada’s ban on all forms of leverage and margin trading has come as a surprise, with some residents claiming these restrictions are unnecessary to protect users from fraudulent activities by centralized entities. Additionally, traditional firms have begun to distance themselves from crypto, with Mazars, a leading European auditing firm, halting all working engagements with crypto companies. It’s hard to say what effect this will have or what caused it, but Mazars was instrumental in providing proof-of-reserves services for some major centralized exchanges in response to liquidity concerns. 2023 is shaping up to be a defining year for crypto and especially for DeFi. Proponents of decentralized finance assert that most of the issues experienced in 2022 can be addressed by open, decentralized, and transparent applications for users. Although security problems persist, with record hacks over the year, an inflection point could occur with established protocols overtaking centralized entities due to avoiding counterparty risk and burdensome regulation. — News. — SEC looks to intercept Grayscale Bitcoin ETF review bid, Binance Proof-of-Reserves Auditor Mazars Pauses All Work for Crypto Clients, Microsoft bans cryptocurrency mining on cloud services, Brazil co...

Product Announcement: Alpaca Finance 2.0!

It’s gotten to the point that now, we’re finally forced… To drop a big batch of alpha grass on you! 🦙 And we’re happy to do so 😊!

Upcoming Perp Exchange — AMA Recap

Upcoming Perp Exchange — AMA Recap - On December 13th, 2022, we held an AMA in our telegram about our upcoming Perp Exchange product with HC, our Head of Product, and Samsara, Head of Marketing and Strategy. Below is the transcript from the session. — Ariel:. — As some of you may know, recently, DEX versions of Perps have gained traction in the DeFi space especially after the collapse of FTX and other centralized platforms. The reason is that DEXs operate transparently on-chain and don’t keep custody of user funds, which protects the users. You can even say the collapse of FTX and centralized lenders has made a strong case for decentralized products. On that note, two weeks ago, we introduced our upcoming Perpetual Futures Exchange, which will launch at great timing(within a few months) to take advantage of this trend. Our goal is to launch a safer and cheaper platform than what’s currently on the market, and ideally, create synergies between perps and AVs & LYF to develop second-stage products. From your feedback so far, we know the Herd is excited about this, and today, our core team members, HC and Sam, are here to answer your questions about the Alpaca Perp Exchange :) For those not familiar with what a perp does, it allows you to have leveraged long or short exposure on an asset without an expiration date. In place of expiration, users pay ongoing fees (as unrealized P/L in the positions) whi...

Nearly 6 months after filing for bankruptcy, we are seeing the initial signs of movement in the Celsius case in the form of business unit acquisitions and court-ordered asset liquidations. Publicly traded institutions such as Galaxy Digital and Goldman Sachs are rumored to be cueing up to purchase firms and assets tied to Celsius and FTX. Though the offers would be at a heavy discount to the market, this is an overall positive sign of the retained value of the crypto market. This is important because centralized bankruptcies seen over ’22 give cause for concern considering the number of assets that have been frozen and at some point will hit the market. Many eyes remain on these deals because what ultimately happens in the unwinding of Celsius, FTX, Blockfi and Voyager will be one of the biggest factors in setting the trend of the overall sentiment and industry direction going into 2023. A potential net positive out of the FTX collapse was the call to centralized exchanges to provide transparent proof of reserves, something not seen in traditional financial systems. A bill has been introduced in US congress to formalize such requirements into law. Although the intention is good, what is ultimately required is clear and fair regulation to bring crypto companies such as FTX completely onshore. Otherwise, history is likely to repeat itself with the attractiveness of more lenient offshore jurisdictions, as it has over the past...

    In mid-March, the top five blockchains - in terms of total value locked (TVL) in decentralized finance (defi) - currently command more than 82% of the $198 billion TVL in defi across all blockchains.
