Another week in crypto—another few giant steps forward for mankind.

  • Not one but two regulatory bills on digital assets have made it through the US House Financial Services Committee, meaning the US may be well on their way toward regulatory clarity. The first (the one we covered which was introduced just last week) named The Financial Innovation and Technology for the 21st Century Act, as well as the Blockchain Regulatory Certainty Act were both passed on July 26 with a majority of lawmakers voting in favor.

  • Remember El Salvador’s Bitcoin Bonds experiment? They’re looking pretty rosy right now vs. traditional investments like US Treasury Bonds. Indeed, while the 10 and 30-year US Treasury yields have largely been in free fall since the 80s, the value of El Salvador’s Bitcoin Bonds are up roughly 62% year to date, closely tracking the rise of their underlying asset: Bitcoin. The IMF, notably, had seriously discouraged El-Salvador from going the sovereign debt path alone... And while it may be a touch early to count their chickens, it looks like their Bitcoin Bond investors must be pretty happy they’re not sitting on US Treasury bonds right now! (Given the ferocity with which the Fed has been raising rates—they hiked another 25 bps just this week—the market value of US Treasuries has been taking a bath: If you’ll recall, this is precisely what caused the collapse of several very large banks earlier in the year.)

  • According to leading bitcoin on-chain analysts Glassnode, the percentage of available bitcoin being held by long term hodlers has reached 3 quarters of supply... Considering this cohort has a very hard time separating themselves from their coins—at any price—this could bode well for hodlers if demand for the oldest and largest crypto asset by market cap increases even a little bit as we approach the next halving in 2024!
