$2.3M Bitcoin? - - 2024

📈 Ark Invest’s Perfect Bitcoin Allocation

Ark Invest just published its iconic Big Ideas report for 2024.

Over the past couple of years, Ark has been bullish on Bitcoin with a price prediction of $1.48M per coin by 2030. But this year’s prediction blows that out of the water. 

With an entire section devoted to Bitcoin allocation, Ark Invest outlines the growing role Bitcoin has in investment portfolios. 

Ark Invest proposes the perfect portfolio allocation of Bitcoin is 19.4% to maximize risk-adjusted returns:

  • Gold: 40.7%
  • Stocks: 30.2%
  • Bitcoin: 19.4%
  • Commodities: 9.6%

This represents a massive increase in the optimum Bitcoin allocation over the past few years, up from 6.2% in 2022.

The case is backed up by comparing Bitcoin’s performance against other investment assets. Bitcoin’s annualised returns have averaged 44% over the past 7 years, whilst other assets have averaged just 5.7%.

With this portfolio allocation of 19.4% Bitcoin, Ark Invest presented an extremely bullish outlook on price action.

In the hypothetical situation that the $250 trillion in stocks, bonds, and funds globally chose to allocate 19.4% to Bitcoin, the price would skyrocket to $2.3 million per coin.

☕️ China Concedes To Crypto With Policy Change

China issued a blanket ban on crypto back in 2021, due to energy usage concerns and the threat it poses to the financial system.

Back then, China was the king of Bitcoin mining, with Chinese mining pools making up over 60% of Bitcoin’s hash rate.

But we all know, you can’t ban Bitcoin. So of course, it didn’t work. Users always find a way.

Now China is conceding to crypto and changing its Anti-Money Laundering regulations (AML).

The change is designed to add crypto-related transactions into the framework. This will be the first significant change to the regulations since 2007.

They say the use of crypto for money laundering has become more popular and current laws aren’t extended to cover the asset class. 

China wouldn’t be making this change unless there is demand for crypto. By China updating its regulations, it’s admitting the ban didn’t work and it’s an asset that people are choosing to use.

The new regulations will be signed into law by 2025.

🚫 UK Police Seizes $1.8 Billion In Bitcoin

So the spot Bitcoin ETFs go live and within weeks the authorities are flaunting their Bitcoin stacks.

First up, the German police seized $2.1 billion this week. Now, it’s been revealed that UK police seized $1.78 billion worth of Bitcoin. Four devices were seized back in 2018 but took until 2021 to recover over 61,000 BTC.

The news broke during the ongoing trial of an investment fraud operation.

British citizen, Jian Wen, is accused of laundering Bitcoin for her ex-employer, a Chinese fugitive, Yadi Zhang.

Zhang stole almost £5 billion from more than 100,000 investors and converted it into Bitcoin. Wen is on trial for converting some of the Bitcoin into other assets. She even tried to buy real estate in London for £12.5 million in 2018. 

The US has Bitcoin too but likes to sell it off. It will be interesting what the UK does with all this BTC.

👋 Celsius Says Goodbye To Bankruptcy

2024 is the year that crypto companies see life after bankruptcy.

Bitcoin miner Core Scientific emerged from Chapter 11 bankruptcy on January 27. Just days later, so did Celsius.

As of January 31, Celsius is back. Around 98% of Celsius creditors agreed to the exit plan which will see more than $3 billion worth of crypto and fiat refunded. 

How does Celsius plan to do this? With a new Bitcoin mining company.

The company is called Ionic Digital and will be managed by fellow miner, Hut 8. Ionic will be headed up by Hut 8’s former Chief Commercial Officer.

It’s a 4-year partnership that will see Hut 8 in charge of expanding its four existing mining rigs in Texas and the development of its new Texas site.

This new site in Texas will see Hut 8 oversee 127,000 miners in total with a hash rate of 12 EH/s. Hut 8 will also host 8,500 Ionic miners at its New York rigs.

Hut 8 stands to make big bucks from this partnership deal. It expects this project to generate cash revenue of $81.5 million over the 4 years. So it’s forecasting potential earnings of over $100M and the possibility of an extension.

With a $6.4 million stake in Ionic, Hut 8 is planning to acquire more in May of this year, which could lead to two board seats.

Ionic is expected to become a publicly traded company once the approvals have been received.

🥷 $112M In XRP Tokens Solen!

Ripple has seen 213M XRP tokens stolen worth $112.5M.

Ripple’s CEO Chris Larsen confirmed the hack on X. But it wasn’t Ripple’s blockchain itself that was hacked. It instead happened through unauthorized access to Larsen’s multiple personal accounts.

The stolen funds have been converted out of XRP and laundered through multiple exchanges including MEXC, Gateio, Binance, Kraken, OKX, HTX and HitBTC.

According to Larsen, this was an isolated incident that was identified early on, and all Ripple wallets are secure.

A large part of the funds have been frozen and Ripple is trying to recover the rest.

With the next bull market approaching fast, now is the time to review your security set-up and make any changes. I We Be vigilant and stay safe out there.

Existing Projects / Tokens

  • Arbitrum [ARB] Orbit has launched. Orbit is a coding toolkit that allows developers to build their own custom L3 blockchains that ultimately settle transactions back on Arbitrum. 
  • Celestia [TIA] is welcoming another project into its ecosystem. This time, it’s the derivatives platform, Aevo. Aevo will be using Celestia in the near term to help save costs on transaction data. It seems that almost every week there’s an announcement of a project or chain moving to Celestia. 
  • Conflux Network [CFX] has released a strategic roadmap for a new layer-2 that uses bitcoin to calculate and pay for transaction fees. Developers say that the integration of bitcoin into the Conflux ecosystem will help improve transaction efficiency. Conflux is an L1, EVM-compatible blockchain. 
  • Ethereum’s [ETH] Dencun upgrade has passed 2 of 3 testnests, with the final occuring Feb. 7th. From there, Dencun will go live on mainnet, and introduce proto-danksharding to the network. Proto-danksharding will help reduce transaction fees both on the mainchain as well as the larger L2 ecosystem. 
  • Frax Finance [FXS] has released Frax Bonds (FXB tokens). FXB tokens can be purchased at a discount, and then redeemed for FRAX at its full value upon the maturity of the bond. 
  • LayerZero [ZRO] launched V2 on January 29th. Here’s the deep-dive if you want the details. But TLDR, V2 brings with it a host of improvements and upgrades to this omnichain interoperability protocol. 
  • Synapse [SYN] just launched its Request-For-Quote (RFQ) bridging service. RFQ makes bridging transactions 10X cheaper due to an auctioning process between relayers. Synapse is a multichain interoperability protocol.
