👀Mt. Gox to Repay Creditors Next Month

Together with

GM Defiers!

Defunct crypto exchange Mt. Gox plans to commence creditor payouts next month. However, the news may be bearish for the markets, with analysts recently fearing the distribution could precipitate a flood of BTC entering the markets.

Ethereum gas prices have slipped to their lowest level in more than four years. The trend appears to be driven by cheap Layer 2 fees post-Dencun, but is also driving supply inflation for Ethereum.

Plus, the Solana and Ethereum communities are fighting again, this time over whether Solana’s new ZK Compression scaling solution closely resembles a Layer 2. The news comes as Solana DEX volumes have dropped to their lowest level since March.

✍️ In today’s newsletter:

  • Mt. Gox creditor payments start next month
  • Ethereum fees dip to the lowest level since 2020
  • Solana’s ZK Compression scaling solution
  • Activity on Solana DEXes dry up

🪙Mt. Gox To Repay Creditors Next Month Amid Heavy Bitcoin Miners Sell-Off

the-defiant

📉Ethereum Gas Prices Tag Multi-Year Low As ETH Supply Inflates

Average Ethereum gas fees dipped to $1.34 for the first time since April 2020. The trend is the result of the sharp decline in Layer 2 costs after the Dencun upgrade and is rapidly inflating Ethereum’s supply.
