🚕The City That Never Sleeps on Crypto
Cryptocurrency being accepted across cities in the United States is becoming a common theme these days.
In Missouri, Mayor Jayson Stewart wants to give $1000 in BTC to all residents of his town while the mayor of Jackson, Tennessee actively seeks to receive property taxes and pay employees with bitcoin.
Not to be outdone, it looks like the Mayor of the Big Apple is continuing his advocacy for cryptocurrency’s embrace and awareness according to an interview with CNN yesterday.
In the video, incoming NYC Mayor Eric Adams said he’d like to see schools teach crypto in the Empire State.
In a reply to a tweet from Miami Mayor Francis Suarez, Adams revealed he will be receiving his first three paychecks in Bitcoin when he takes office.
Last Thursday, a series of tweets highlighted five cities across the United States with pro-crypto mayors.
As the total cryptocurrency market cap approaches $3 trillion, endorsements and adoptions continue to populate headlines.
Celebrities and cities alike now find themselves clamouring to get in as close to the ground floor as possible before being left behind.
Our Market Meditations are longer format educational segments. Each letter features a Market Meditation which will deep dive and analyse a relevant crypto event, theme or tool.
🔮 BTC, ETH & New Narratives
High conviction and bullish are the words of the day.
We had predicted that ETH would outperform BTC and indeed it has.
Today, we will consider BTC, ETH and a hot new narrative.
Aggressively bullish structure.
Expect to see some sort of resistance just under $5k. Very common to experience this below key levels.
After some resistance, further pump anticipated. Sights set on $5k and onwards.
Conviction remains high, with Raoul Pal recently stating an Ether ETF looks hopeful for the first half of 2022.
Also pumping and approaching ATHs.
Sights set on $70k. However, we still expect ETH to outperform BTC this run.
Bitcoin is an essential indicator of the health of the market.
On chain metrics suggest decreasing balances on exchanges, an indication of strong buyer appetite.
Exchange Token Narrative
When market conditions are bullish, altcoins tend to do well. Albeit, there are always outperformers. To identify them is an art. It requires identification of trending narratives. Recently, we’ve discussed the following narratives:
1) Alternative Layer 1 Solutions (SOL, AVAX, DOT etc)
2) NFT Games (Particularly games that can incorporate Play-to-Earn or Metaversal features or both)
Today, we discuss exchange token narratives.
The crypto.com native coin is pumping hard.
Missed the big breakout? No problem. Remember, you can always draw Fibonacci levels and look for entries when you see a retracement to key levels. To learn how to draw Fibonacci levels, check out our guide.
Crypto.com have also recently:
Listed on Coinbase
Signed a 5 year deal with Formula 1
Secured a partnership with UFC to launch their NFT line
Brought on Matt Damon as their brand ambassador
Other exchange narrative tokens include BNB and FTT.
Remember, these exchanges are all competitors and if you consider any single one of them, you’ll realise just how high they set the bar and continue to raise the bar. The sky's the limit and we’ve all got a space reserved on the moon.

🥳 NFT Palooza
Non-fungible tokens. It seems that at this point, even grandparents and cavemen have heard of NFTs. This industry is rapidly growing and that did not stop this last week! Just last week, there were:
The Strokes, Lil Baby, Chris Rock, Aziz Ansari, and Questlove performed for an exclusive party put on by Bored Ape Yacht Club.
Quentin Tarantino is minting 7 new Pulp Fiction uncut scenes as NFTs. He says that they will reveal secrets about the film.
There were 15 different NFT themed billboards in Times Square in NYC.
With 5500 tickets sold to the NFT conference in NYC, there were 3,000 people left on the waitlist.
This recent crypto surge and raised awareness in NYC is only leading to a more rapidly growing and evolving industry. With more eyes, there can be more innovation and a draw toward developing creative projects.
How can we benefit?
If we are active members on crypto Twitter (CT) and are up-to-date with the news, we can see who is backing certain projects. Right now, celebrities are endorsing many projects and though their endorsement does not tell us about the project itself, it may sometimes divulge some micro trends that will ensue with the project.
On Mondays, our ‘Scan The Week’ section is designed to show our community what events and headlines we will be keeping an eye on.
