💎 Ether staking ratio nears key milestone 

  • Staking on Ethereum neared 20% of all ETH locked up in staking contracts, according to blockchain data. 
  • “Investors have deposited 23.9 million of ETH to Ethereum’s staking network, including tokens committed and waiting in a queue,” according to CoinDesk. 
  • Deposits have outpaced ETH withdrawals by 4.5 million.

🕸️ Inflation proved sticky, again

  • Private sector jobs in the US increased by 497,000 in June, according to data from payroll processing firm ADP, in the biggest monthly gain since July 2022, as reported by CNBC.

  • “The market clearly would have preferred an in-line number,” said John Lynch, chief investment officer at Comerica Wealth Management. “But because it was more than double expectations, that really ratchets up the fear factor that the Fed would have to be more aggressive.”

🦧 Rare Bored Ape NFT sells for record lows

  • The second rarest Bored Ape Yacht Club NFT sold for 200 ETH last week, roughly $372,000, far below peak prices, as reported by The Block. 
  • “In the past, apes with similar traits have been sold for millions of dollars. The record sale, brokered by Sotheby’s in 2021, was $3.4 million,” according to the publication. 
  • “We’re not interested in monitoring the purchase or sale of our collections on marketplaces because it has no impact on what we’re doing at Yuga,” a spokesperson told The Block.
