The 5 metrics of the week
➤ 125,051it’s the number of BTC held by the company MicroStrategy. Thus, the company is pursuing its cash diversification strategy. More recently, she announced that she took out a loan to buy more BTC.
➤ 159 ETHit’s the amount collected by two so-called MEV bots on Ethereum. Thus, the latter took advantage of the opportunity created by large swaps to make significant arbitrages.
➤ 4 millionit’s the number of different tokens that have been created on the Cardano blockchain. Indeed, it has now been more than a year since the blockchain became multi-asset.
➤ $600 millionit’s the amount that was stolen during the attack on the Ronin Bridge. A large loss, which the developers will have taken 6 days to realize. A disaster for the Ronin ecosystem and the Axie Infinity game.
➤ 115 DAIsit’s the amount for which Bored Ape Yacht Club #835 was sold. So its previous owner accepted the offer, probably thinking it was 115 ETH and not DAI.
