1. Market Environment

As expectations for a Fed rate cut diminished, and the risk aversion in the market intensified, the US dollar index rose above $106, and spot gold broke through the $2430 mark before plummeting nearly $100. Following an attack by Iran on Israel, there were no further actions from either side, temporarily easing tensions in the Middle East.
The conflicts and easing of tensions over the weekend significantly influenced the trajectory of cryptocurrency market: an initial attack by Iran on Saturday caused a sharp decline in BTC and altcoins, followed by a swift market rebound after further actions were halted.
During the decline, altcoins fell much more than BTC, which increased its market dominance to 53%, the highest since April 2021. The strong rebound in the Memecoin, AI, and RWA sectors during the recovery highlights the preferences of major funds and the market. Investors should therefore focus on the leading assets in these three sectors for short-term returns.

2. Wealth Creation Sectors

2.1 Sector Movements —Recently launched popular memecoins (SLERF, MEW, BOME, and WIF)

Main reason: The recent memecoin season has introduced a new generation of popular memecoins that rebounded strongly from an overcorrection amid market volatility. During the market downturn, significant investments by whale wallets and smart money capitalized on the low prices, leading to robust gains during the rebound.
Gainers: In the past 24 hours, SLERF rose by 31%, MEW by 89%, BOME by 6%, and WIF by 12%.
Factors affecting future market conditions:
  • The new generation of popular memecoins is characterized by the activities of whales with significant influence and high visibility. WIF has been listed on Binance and Robinhood, gaining significant exposure; SLERF and BOME have seen major whale acquisitions during volatile price movements; MEW, after its TGE, distributed an airdrop worth up to $4 million, with the project yet to profit from this asset. Thus, whales with significant control over several new generation memecoins have ample motivation to pump these assets that have already garnered significant market attention. The market enthusiasm for the memecoin sector and the timing of whale activities are critical factors for profitability in this sector.

2.2 Sector Movements — AI sector (RNDR, AGIX, TAO, and FET)

Main reason: The AI sector remains one of the main areas of speculation during this bull market, with strong market expectations and consensus among investors. The recent listing of the leading AI project TAO on Binance indicates continued speculation in the AI sector.
Gainers: In the past 24 hours, RNDR, AGIX, TAO, and FET each rose by 19%, 17%, 15%, and 15%, respectively.
Factors affecting future market conditions:
  • Continuous improvements and market cap increases in AI giants like OpenAI will also enhance the potential and reach of Web3 AI projects.
  • If the Web3 AI segment introduces new innovations widely accepted by the market, it could spark another surge in this sector.
  • A forthcoming decision on the token merger proposal for SingularityNET,, and Ocean Protocol could influence the entire AI sector depending on the outcome and post-merger performance.

2.3 Sectors to Focus on Next — RWA sector (ONDO, PRCL, and RWA tokens with low market cap)

Main reason: Previously, BlackRock announced the launch of its first tokenized fund on a public blockchain, injecting fresh energy into the RWA sector. RWA may become one of the most important narratives of this bull market. The RWA sector showed remarkable performance during the market's downturn and subsequent rebound.
Key projects:
  • Ondo (ONDO) – As the leading token in the RWA sector, it is backed by TradFi giants such as BlackRock, Goldman Sachs, and Bridgewater. During the recent market downturn and rebound, the leading RWA token ONDO stood out, showing resilience in the downturn and quickly rising 30% to approach a new high.
  • Parcl (PRCL) – A real estate digital investment platform based on Solana that is set to have its TGE soon. BackPack has announced that it would list PRCL.
  • RWA tokens with low market cap: RWA tokens with solid fundamentals and lower market caps are likely to see higher percentage gains in the hype around leading RWA projects. RIO, GFI, and PROPS are worth exploring.

GCR: As the conflicts in the Middle East intensified over the weekend, the cryptocurrency market experienced a significant pullback, with Bitcoin quickly dropping to $60,000. Legendary trader GCR, who had not posted for about a year, broke his silence by encouraging cryptocurrency market participants to hold onto their spot assets and not to give up. GCR is known for his legendary short position in the Luna event, where he profited $10 million. In the past, he has often shared his investment philosophy on social media, making him a popular figure in the cryptocurrency market. His recent post during this time of shaky market confidence has sparked widespread discussion across the global crypto community.
Regional focus:
(1) Europe and the CIS region show significant interest in memecoins:
Amid tensions in the Middle East over the weekend, the cryptocurrency market saw a significant pullback, with most memecoins losing nearly all their gains since the beginning of 2024. However, as the market began to recover, some investors started buying back into memecoins for potentially higher profits. Searches from European users indicate a high frequency of inquiries about memecoins, suggesting significant participation from the European market in memecoin trading.
(2) Asia shows increased interest in BTC and ETH ETFs:
Reports by Bloomberg about the potential approval of BTC and ETH ETFs in Hong Kong this week have heightened interest in this event across Asia. As a financial hub in Asia, Hong Kong has always been at the forefront of financial innovation. Should these ETFs be approved, they are expected to become a focal point in Asia, providing traditional finance and large capital an avenue to enter the cryptocurrency space, positively impacting both industry growth and retail investment.
