The New Orca

Buying crypto shouldn’t have to be hard. This core belief is what drove the creation of Orca in the first place. And this time, it’s given birth to an entirely new way to buy and sell crypto. It’s called… The new Orca. medium.com — Why build a new version of Orca? - Orca earns the majority of fees on Solana — 70–80% over the past 6 months, and over $34.7b in all-time volume. It also generates the most fees, has raised over $1.6m for climate change through the Orca Climate Fund, and has never been hacked. So, why invest effort in a new, radically different interface? Crypto has the potential to bring efficiency, transparency, and verifiability to global financial markets. But for mass adoption to happen, the experience of buying and selling tokens on-chain must be not only on par with TradFi, but meaningfully better. So, Orca is making an audacious bet: Concentrated liquidity AMMs (CLAMMs) will be the innovation that enables mainstream adoption., Solana will be the chain to power that revolution., For that bet to pan out, the basic building blocks of finance — buying and selling assets — must feel familiar enough for everyday people to use. That’s where the new Orca comes in. — Sleeker, sexier… - Orca is known for its focus on human-centered design, a rarity in the world of crypto. But until now, even Orca itself was catered more toward technically savvy, crypto-native users. ...

Here's How Much Binance's Market Share Declined Amid CZ's Departure: Rep...

    The latest TokenInsight report reveals that 2023 witnessed shifts in market share and trading volume among top exchanges, with Binance's numbers decreasing from 54.2% to 48.7% while OKX's and Bybit's increasing by 4.3% and 2.2%, respectively. Binance, Upbit, and OKX occupy the top three positions in total annual trading volume, while Binance, OKX, and Bybit are in the lead regarding derivatives. Binance's Market Share and Resilience At the beginning of 2023, Binance held a market share of 54.2%, maintaining a dominant position in the industry. However, events such as the end of the Zero-Fee Bitcoin trading promotion and the SEC filing a lawsuit in June impacted its market share, which dropped below 50%. The subsequent resignation of CEO CZ led to a temporary dip to 32%, but Binance quickly stabilized, ending the year with a 48.7% market share. According to the report, Binance's resilience in the face of regulatory hurdles and its commitment to safeguarding user assets have instilled confidence among traders, mitigating a more substantial decline in market share. Surpassing initial expectations, the year saw only a 5% decrease in market share. While Binance experienced a decline, OKX and Bybit emerged as the biggest beneficiaries, with their market shares increasing by 4.3% and 2.2%, respectively. OKX's total market share reached 15.7%, securing the second position, while Bybit claimed the third spot with an 11.6% market share. The top three in total annual trading v... read More

Crypto Exchanges Trading Volume Hit $10.3T in 2023, New Data Shows

    CoinGecko's 2023 Annual Crypto Industry Report has been released. It covers crypto exchanges and their current state, Bitcoin’s +155.2% and Ethereum’s +90.5% growth, analyzing NFT trading volume throughout the year, and more. Among the report’s highlights is the comprehensive review of the crypto trading volume in 2023 through the performance of centralized crypto exchanges (CEX) and decentralized exchanges (DEX). Centralized Crypto Exchanges Dominated Crypto saw a $36.6 trillion trading volume in 2023, with a volume increase of +53.1% from Q3 ($6.7 trillion) to Q4 ($10.3 T). The Q4 increase marked the first quarter-on-quarter (QoQ) growth of 2023 and could be attributed to the 'growing bullish sentiment' in the crypto market due to the anticipation of spot Bitcoin ETFs’ approval by the SEC. Despite the market's challenges, such as the aftermath of FTX’s collapse, the worldwide banking crisis, or Binance’s regulatory difficulties in 2023, the data presented in the report shows an overall market recovery. In December 2023, the trading volume increased sharply to $4.3 trillion, a volume not seen since March 2023. Overall 2023, centralized exchanges dominated the year despite the challenges, especially when compared to decentralized exchanges (DEX). The report details: CEXto DEX spot trading volume ratio hovered around 91.5% in Q4. CEX to DEX derivatives trading volume ratio dropped to 97.3% from 98.5%. CEX to DEX spot ratio stood at 91.4% i... read More



Solana Poised For Major Upside: Analyst Predicts 47% Surge After Price B...

    With the recent approval of Bitcoin exchange-traded funds (ETFs) injecting new inflows and igniting a sense of bullish sentiment in the market, Solana (SOL) is emerging as one of the top gainers in the past 24 hours.  The cryptocurrency has experienced a 4.5% surge, trading at $99, aiming to reclaim the significant $100 milestone lost during a recent deep correction. Solana Bulls Targeting $150-$165 Price Range  Solana, holding the fifth position among cryptocurrencies by market capitalization, could undergo a substantial price surge if the current upward momentum continues and successfully breaks out of its downtrend correction. Renowned crypto analyst Ali Martinez suggests that Solana is breaking out from a bullish flag pattern formed on the 4-hour chart.  A sustained close above the $106 mark can trigger a remarkable 47% rally, propelling SOL towards the price range of $150 to $165. However, at the time of writing, Solana has retraced below the upper boundary of the bull flag formation, which is positioned at $103.  Nevertheless, a breakout could be imminent if the growing interest in the token persists alongside a sustained bullish momentum. This scenario would position SOL to regain its previously lost highs and set its course toward Ali Martinez's price targets within $150 to $165. SOL Market Cap Quadruples, DeFi, And NFT Metrics Skyrocket Solana has showcased remarkable performance during the fourth quarter of 2023, positioning itself as a leader ... read More

According to the CoinGecko 2023 Q3 Crypto Industry Report, the third quarter spot trading volume for the top 10 CEXs represented a 20.1% decrease from Q2. Analysts called the quarter a turbulent one for crypto exchanges. CEX Spot Trading Volume Plunged in Q3 Among the top CEXs, Binance – the world’s largest – witnessed a significant drop in its market share. The exchange’s share fell to a yearly low of 44% in September from a yearly high of 66% in February. Analysts attributed the decline to pressure from several regulators and the platform’s exit from multiple markets, as well as the departure of some of its top executives. Binance is facing scrutiny from regulators like the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and the Department of Justice. The exchange is in a legal tussle with the SEC over several allegations of securities law violations. This has impacted the platform’s trade volume, especially in the U.S. Besides Binance, other exchanges recorded gains and losses in their market shares. KuCoin slipped out of the top 10 while HTX (formerly Huobi) regained its place as the third. Upbit and Bybit gained 4.6% and 6.9% in market share, respectively. On the other hand, the top 10 decentralized exchanges (DEXs) witnessed a 31.2% drop in their spot t... read More



Solana Sees Significant Growth Across DeFi, NFTs: Messari

    After a turbulent 2022 owing to macroeconomic headwinds, Solana's performance improved substantially in the first quarter of the year. Data suggested that its market cap increased by more than 118% QoQ along with the broader market. Furthermore, numerous ecosystem developments fueled fee payer and transaction activity during Q1. Solana's Performance in Q1 Solana's network outages previously sparked conversations around potential insolvency. But its performance stabilized after upgrades such as QUIC, priority fees (local fee markets), and Stake-Weighted Quality of Service (QOS). In Q1, the layer one blockchain network witnessed significant growth across DeFi, NFTs, and GameFi verticals. According to the latest Messari report, the total value locked in Solana, denominated in USD, surged by 23.5% QoQ. However, TVL denominated in SOL was down by 40.7% during the same period, indicating that 'the asset price increases in USD vs. new capital inflow drove TVL.' Liquid staking derivatives (LSDs) continued supporting the Solana ecosystem, with Marinade Finance, Lido, Jito, and JPool growing their TVL by 100% or more during the quarter. These four LSDs also managed to make it into the top 20 by TVL. Other protocols, such as Orca, Raydium, and Solend, grew their TVL massively alongside the wider market rebound. A similar trend was seen across Solana's NFT ecosystem as well. Messari's data revealed that the total number of daily new NFTs increased from 2.6 million to 2.9 million QoQ... read More



BONK Goes Bonkers With Over 200% Increase In Last 24 Hours – Will ...

    Solana’s ecosystem found itself in knee-deep trouble caused by fear, uncertainty and doubt over its connections with disgraced crypto exchange FTX. Since after the collapse of the exchange, the ecosystem has been trying to distance itself from FTX former CEO Sam Bankman-Fried, with Messari even releasing a detailed overview of the ecosystem and how it was impacted by the implosion back in December 15.  But a new project called Bonk has been making headlines these past days, shooting up in price and giving Solana some welcome respite from the troubles it had to endure.   What Is BONK And What It Can Bring To The Solana Ecosystem According to Bonk’s official website, Bonk stands for the Solana community who made the Solana ecosystem great in the first place. It is the first Solana dog coin 'for the people, by the people.' 'The Bonk contributors are tired of toxic 'Alameda' tokenomics and wanted to make a fun memecoin where everyone gets a fair shot,” the official website says. This certainly hit a spot on the Solana community and the crypto world as a whole as the token is now up 214% in the past 24 hours.

What is Bonk Inu (BONK): The Dogecoin of Solana?

    Memecoins have been a part of the crypto culture for almost as long as the community existed, but 2020 and 2021 saw them soar to a whole new level. It got to a point where two memecoins - Dogecoin (DOGE) and Shiba Inu (SHIB) became frequent members of the top-10 club (the 10 largest cryptocurrencies by means of total market capitalization). The bear market of 2022 has impacted most memecoins severely, but DOGE and SHIB continue to be leading coins. That said, there’s a new kid on the block - one built on Solana - and is going the miles. The cryptocurrency in question is called Bonk Inu (BONK), so let’s have a closer look at what it actually does. What is Bonk Inu (BONK)? According to its official one-pager, BONK is the very first Dog-themed memecoin on Solana that’s “for the people, by the people.” The document states: The BONK contributors were tired of toxic “Alameda” tokenomics and wanted to make a fun memecoin where everyone gets a fair shot. 50% of the total supply of the cryptocurrency was airdropped to the Solana community, while the main purpose of the team behind it is to bring back liquidity to decentralized exchanges built on Solana. In fact, that’s pretty much everything the document outlines, alongside the token distribution. BONK Token Distribution Explained As mentioned above, 50% of the supply was airdropped to the Solana community, divided as it follows: 20% of it went to Solana NFT collections (297K individual... read More



Hubble Protocol Launches Kamino Finance to Optimize Yields for Liquidity...

    PRESS RELEASE. LONDON | August 30, 2022 – Hubble Protocol, home of the USDH stablecoin, has launched Kamino Finance: the first concentrated liquidity market maker (CLMM) optimizer of its kind on the Solana blockchain. Kamino Finance, launching initially on next-generation decentralized exchange (DEX) Orca, will allow users to earn higher yields in a fully automated way simply by depositing their crypto into vaults linked to Orca's liquidity 'whirlpools.' Kamino Finance builds on the advantages of CLMM's, which reduce slippage and facilitate larger trades by narrowing the price range at which users provide liquidity. By automatically adjusting positions so they are set in an optimum range to capture the most fees and provide the deepest liquidity, Kamino removes common pain points for CLMM liquidity providers (LPs). In addition, Kamino automatically compounds CLMM fees and rewards back into users' LP positions, boosting yields as position sizes grow. Marius Ciubotariu, the co-founder of Hubble Protocol, says: 'Managing profitable LP positions has been notoriously difficult due to the complexities posed by CLMMs and the increased risk of impermanent loss when prices swing the wrong way, as well as front-running by bots – common on Ethereum. 'Thanks to the lightning-speed throughput of the Solana blockchain, Kamino is able to provide LPs with higher yields and maximum capital efficiency. This fully realizes the potential of CLMMs. With Kamino, we hope to be paving ... read More

Solana TVL Sees Sharp Decline, Reaches 2022 Low

    When Solana's price hit new lows near $54, the total value locked (TVL) for the token also declined to a historical low. According to data from Defi Llama, the token's TVL has been on a steady decline since November 2021. However, the research says that Solana has lost 60% in total value locked since January first day of 2022, trapped inside a bear market pattern.  To be exact, on January 1st, Solana's TVL was approximately $11.22 billion, but by May 16, it had fallen to around $4.38 billion. Solana is a blockchain that helps create user-friendly applications that are very scalable. As the fastest growing ecosystem in the crypto finance space, Solana has thousands of projects under Web3, non-fungible tokens (NFTs), and DeFi. Reason Behind The Decline in Solana Total Value Locked This week, the Solana TVL reached new lows due to the number of decentralized applications (dApps) in its ecosystem plummeting. For example, the Tulip yield aggregation platform has shed more than 11% of its TVL in the last month. Likewise, the Solend decentralized lending and borrowing platform have also fallen by more than 8% within the same timeframe.

Bitcoin Sees Poor Demand As Investors Try to Defend $37K, Is BTC In Trou...

    Bitcoin has been rejected as it approached $40,000 and has experienced a rise in volatility during today’s trading session. The first crypto by market cap trades at $37,400 with a 4.3% loss in 24-hours. Related Reading | Bitcoin Steadies At $37,000, But What Are Options Traders Doing? BTC trends to the downside in the daily chart. Source: BTCUSD Tradingview There has been a shift in market sentiment as Bitcoin attempts to bounce from a low near $33,000. A large portion of traders seem to have positioned themselves on the short side. On crypto exchange Binance, according to Jarvis Labs, funding rates for derivatives turned negative. However, they yet need to reach similar levels as in other downtrends. BTC Funding rates on Binance turned negative, but far from previous downtrends. Source: Jarvis Labs via Telegram As the chart shows, funding rates on this platform are barely on negative territory while in June 2021, when Bitcoin hit a yearly low of $28,800, the metric stood higher. This suggests there is room for more downside and more a bigger bearish sentiment across the market. Bitcoin investors David Ellis has been tracking large BTC holders and their movements for some months. Ellis has found potential for more danger as most of these investors outload their funds with recent BTC price action. Although there has been some demand for Bitcoin from “Blue Whales”, the overall demand and address distribution seem to be hinting at low interest on the cryptoc... read More
