🎢Bitcoin ETF Outflows Persist Despite Markets Bouncing


GM Defiers!

Digital assets bounced back following a sustained week of downward price action, with more than half of the top 100 cryptocurrencies by market cap posting double-digit gains from their local lows. Despite the bullish momentum, spot Bitcoin ETFs posted outflows for the third consecutive day.

An Ethereum Foundation GitHub commit revealed that the Swiss non-profit organization has received a “voluntary inquiry” from an unnamed state authority. However, onlookers are divided as to whether the news is cause for concern.

Polygon shipped its Napoli fork, introducing support for several key upgrades included in Ethereum’s recent Dencun hard fork. Napoli also included the first Rollup Improvement Proposal from RollCall, a collective of Layer 2 developers.

And The Open Network will launch a more than $100 million incentives program to drive up adoption from developers and users.
