⛓ On-Chain Sleuthing

Polymarket whale MAKING move

Polymarket did hit escape volatility in the last few months mostly because of the upcoming US elections.

Lots of political topics became tradable tokens with sizable liquidity.

Looking on-chain we found an interesting addy

This guy went big on different topics with some interesting bullishness on Biden and SHORT Trump

He’s been trying to close some losing positions recently.

It is clear that Polymarket has been a real success this cycle, it has achieved product market fit and succeeded in bringing, political speculators on-chain.

🔥 Hot Narratives

Memes & Tokens: Who is profiting?

If we can point to one current narrative, then it is for sure the constant dilution of the market with new tokens. Celebrities launching tokens, every political figure getting its own token. Of course, we had this last year as well when every Elon quote, pet, or food got its own meme, but back then it made some sense.

Right now, it’s just retardio market, or I simply don’t get it, or both.

Whatever is the case, we can all agree that the market has been flooded with tokens from both the community standpoint and VC standpoint.

The community launches their tokens through new platforms such as PumpDotFun and Moonshot, while VC on their high throne launch low float token on the Binance, Bybit, and OKX launchpads.

Same game. Different size.

Alright, alright, who is profiting in this case?

First of all, very few lucky traders who are able to catch the waves and exit on time.

Second, snipers, either the terminally ill online ones on telegram with fast fingers beating their competition or the sophisticated ones with custom bot operations.

But there is a third that everyone is able to ride.


Yes, the token is already fairly high. But it is the one project that continues to benefit from all this madness. They nailed it with regards to quick sniping and trading, and their product is unparalleled on the market.

As you can see the bot almost consistently pulls over $15mln in volume. Every. Day. And the market has not been as fruitful lately.

Again. Not financial advice. Don’t buy here. But it is something to keep in mind.

Even though token dilution may be surpressing the overall market. There are always picks and shovels out there doing some digging.

📈 HTF Price Action Scenarios

Gm frens!

Another boring week. Price is doing exactly what I expected it to do - going sideways or slowly bleeding. That means I’m sidelined until a new impulse to the upside shows up, validating my thesis.

  • HTF re-accumulation

  • Deeper pullback

  • Expecting more down or sideways

These are prime conditions to get chopped up and give your money to the composite operators. Therefore until we see some clear signs of bullishness we remain patient and do nothing. Remember, you can outperform the majority of the market by NOT trading. Patience frens.

Trade responsibly and I’ll see y’all next time!
