    TLT: Beware Of A Spike In Yields

    Aug. 26, 2021 – Stuart Allsopp

    “Holders of the iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond ETF now face an extremely high likelihood of losing money in real terms over the long term.”

    “While the TLT may well perform strongly in the event of an equity market correction, peaks in the S&P 500 have tended to coincide with spikes in long-term bond yields.”

    “We cannot rule out the possibility that equity market weakness leads to increased expectations of further monetary and fiscal easing, negating any downward pressure on inflation expectations and bond yields.”

    DeFi Adoption Driven By Seasoned Traders, Investors From High-Income Countries – Report

    By Jarosław Adamowski – August 25, 2021

    Decentralized finance (DeFi) adoption has been primarily driven by experienced cryptocurrency traders and investors which explains why its adoption is more visible in high-income countries which benefit from established cryptocurrency user bases, according to a recent report by blockchain analysis company Chainalysis.

    While emerging markets are powering cryptocurrency adoption across the world, the importance of experienced traders and investors in DeFi’s growth highlights the distinctions between the DeFi ecosystem and the broader crypto ecosystem, according to the report.

    “The question for the coming years is whether we’ll see DeFi follow the same pattern as the cryptocurrency services that came before it, with wider swaths of the population adopting it for tangible benefits beyond speculation and investment,” Chainalysis said.

      Bitcoin Mining Difficulty Takes Another Large Step Up, As Miners Reposition

      August 25, 2021 – By Sead Fadilpašić & Sumejja Muratagić-Tadić

      “Bitcoin mining difficulty, or the measure of how hard it is to compete for mining rewards, jumped by 13.24%, reaching 17.6 T. This is the highest increase since May this year, and a significant jump from the 15.56 T, reached during the previous adjustment two weeks ago. It’s also notable when compared to the 13.67 T level it had seen during the last drop, in mid-July.”

      “The number it hit today brought it back to the November 2020 level – slowly moving towards the all-time high of 25 T seen this past May, though still quite far from it.”

      “This is now the third jump in a row, following the second longest drop streak in the network’s history.”

      “All this comes with the rise of BTC’s price, which had recently surpassed USD 50,000 again, before correcting lower.”
