Continue Capital: Stablecoin Protocol Spell
The moat of any staboin is an ecological scene and needs to be approved and used by users.

10 月 14 日, Continue Capital 联合创始人匹马在个人社交媒体发表长文,对于当前市场热议的 Spell、Alcx 等协议进行分析。现将匹马观点整理如下:


Look at the Spell. The first place I felt was Alcx. I have analyzed Alcx for a long time, so I was not surprised at first sight when I saw the Spell. However, the development path is very different, so I mainly want to see some reasons for the difference between the two situations.


First of all, both of them are the application of future cash flow discount, that is, I advance the future income to use now, still can refer to my previous example of Alcx used to pay electricity or buy a car.


What's the difference? First of all, different target markets lead to different entry points.Spell targeted lock-in interest-bearing assets, while Alcx targeted assets such as Dai. What does it mean? If you want to save Dai in yVault to earn interest (the key is that Dai can also be used anywhere else), now you can earn interest in Alcx, and you can mortgage yDai, borrow alUSD, and change alUSD into USDT to buy a car and pay the electricity bill. An argument for Staking is an interest-generating asset that is locked up, like xSushi, stETH, and of course yUSDT. If I own Sushi and generate xSushi, It has no purpose other than collecting Sushi transaction fees (Apy is about 10%), but with Spell, I can mortgage xSushi, lend MIM (u) in a certain proportion, and change MIM into USDC stablecoin through Crv


I can go somewhere else, and all of a sudden I've released a lot of locked-in interest-earning assets, but Dai of Alcx is not a locked-in asset, and if there are Dai, there are too many places to go, so Spell has a good entry point.

Then there is the ecological scene.The moat of any stablecoin is an ecological scene, that is, your stablecoin needs to be recognized and used by others. What determines your social APP is not yourself, but the environment you are in, and the social APP that is used by all the identity relationships around you. Spell expanded the ecosystem of N with its strong ability to form alliances, just like AC's aggressive cooperation in the past. In a very short time and with strong execution, THE share of MIM reached 1.5 billion DOLLARS like a storm. Of course, the coin circle is now the main use of mining, the main destination of MIM is also in the Crv pool, the highest rate of return is about 24%, followed by stablecoin mining on Arbitrum (MIM-USDC-USDT), Apy 35%.

What about stablecoin circulations for other projects? Alcx is mainly alUSD, currently 240 million (of course, Alcx will soon launch 2.0, and there will be different improvements). We can also compare UST under Luna, 2.7 billion; Fxs, $400 million in FRAX, don't say, look at the curve of FRAX is perfect, come on Fxs.

Third, market capitalization.I frankly point out, there is no DeFi 2.0 3.0, the difference is that there is no retail secondary market to make money, I have not seen a cowboy community is not suddenly rich community. You will find that every once in a while, there will be a trend against VC, the recent so-called DeFi 2.0, many are not vc participation by the community a little bit of development, after all, this project community to enjoy the dividend is really huge, the mass foundation is solid, the bottom of the coin circle up the original project is too big, Of course, as any project reaches a certain stage of development, it will encounter different bottlenecks, and this is the time to test the ability and nature of the team, especially the anonymous team. The top FDV of Alcx online is as high as 4.7 billion, which is similar to many DeFi agency projects, which are often estimated at 2 billion, 3 billion, how to play this.


DeFi


And the Spell went up 50 times? 100 times? FDV is also 3.2 billion yuan. The huge growth dividend is transferred to the community, and a lot of cooperation naturally takes place. Say more 1, all 21 years, unexpectedly still have a person to take circulation dish rather than whole dish FDV say a thing, want self-deception to when? DeFi has a clear profit valuation model. If you don't pay attention to it, it doesn't mean the market doesn't.


DeFi


And finally, don't go to the head,I looked at Spell's token allocation, and $21 billion would destroy $8.7 billion, which was 30% of the team and unlocked 50% in the first year, and the second-pool bonus for ETH Spell was 75% in the first year. My first thought was: Is this a one-year job? When we participate in anonymous projects, we must be more aware of the risks. These are the dishes, how to cook the dishes is up to you.

律动 BlockBeats 消息,中国基金报发表《华尔街首只比特币 ETF 疯狂!》,文章指出,在资金和乐观情绪的驱动下,比特币价格的暴涨为买入这只 ETF 的散户提供了足够多的理由:门槛低,买入方便,基础资产还在上升通道,但专业人士建议散户不要轻易买入。 中国基金报指出,现有比特币 ETF 投资于在芝加哥商品交易所期货市场交易的比特币期货,近 45% 的风险敞口在 11 月份的期货合约中。如果该基金保持这种流入速度,由于持仓限制,到本月底它将没有任何期货可以买入。如果出现这种情况,基金净值会与比特币价格出现相当大的跟踪误差。一旦行情转向,出现资金大规模逃离虚拟货币的情况下,比特币 ETF 很可能会出现类似快速下跌,对行情不太了解的散户就会遭受重大损失。ETF 的形式并不会让高风险的资产变得更安全;如果不了解 ETF 或期货复杂的产品结构,并不建议散户投资者购买。
