Apparently Soul Bind Tokens (SBTs), which are NFTs that can’t be moved, may be the new thing

E.g.; (NFTs of) college degrees shouldn’t move hands

2/2 When split per 4-year halving cycle, we see that BPT 🌡️ rose early but never peaked as high as previous cycles

The result of naturally dampening 4-year volatility, an unfavorable broader macro-economic landscape, or perhaps both? 🤷‍♂️

1/2 As anyone sees by now, the Price Temperature (BPT) 🌡️ has cooled off drastically & is even nearing its freezing point at ~$21.2k ❄️

No guarantees that price will do a full 4-year mean reversion, but there's confluence for a potential bottom in the mid-to-low $20k's

Amidst downside price exploration of Coinbase's stock price following bearish earnings reports, the "Coinbase Premium" (difference between Coinbase's BTCUSD & Binance's BTCUSDT pairs) is at a discount not seen since mid-2019 🐻

Could they change course as soon as inflation cools down?

Either way; all 👀 on the FED this year
