Alpha Leak

July 9th, 2021

Bitcoin and other major coins stayed sideways this week, leaving everyone watching for the next move. In this week’s Daily posts, we explored signals like BTC falling volume and open interest, DeFi’s relatively good performance, and short sellers on Bitfinex. For clients, we also have a fresh report on Alpha’s money markets, as well as updated Yield Strats. Finally, on the podcast side, we sat down with the creators behind AlphaSomnium Space, and Ava Labs. Plenty of alpha to dig through over the weekend.

Stay degen,


Here were the highlights from this week’s research:

[Delphi Daily]​​​​ DeFi Roaring, Axie Soaring, and NFTs No Longer Boring

  • The crypto market opened the day strong with a rare bullish session coming out of Asia. But that momentum was nipped in the bud during the London session. BTC is currently in the process of printing a bearish looking pinbar candle on the daily, and things aren’t looking too hot on lower time frame charts.

[Research Reports] Money Market ALPHA

  • Alpha trades at a relatively cheap P/E ratio compared to its peer group. This is likely due to the market pricing in a drag on earnings from the protocol’s debt to Cream.
  • Delphi Institutional subscribers & clients can see the full brief here.

[Yield Strats] Yield Strats #17

  • In this week’s edition, we cover yield farming opportunities for Kyber’s Rainmaker DMM on Ethereum and Polygon, and Balancer on Polygon.
  • Delphi Insights and Institutional subscribers & clients can see the full brief here.

Delphi Daily Of The Week

[Delphi Daily] Load the Bitfinex Shorts, dApp Revenues, ENS Grows

  • BTC is down 3.5% today as it makes way towards the range low. After a fun few days, alt season may have been short-lived; AXS has been hit the worst, down 22% in the last 24 hours. In today’s edition, we cover the re-emergence of Bitfinex shorts and why June wasn’t such a bad month after all.
