⛓ On-Chain Sleuthing

SIFU short $CRV

Infamous Sifu has been building up a 7 figure short on $CRV through his personal bank protocol UwU Lend.

You can find his operations through his public wallet:

No doubt, he is betting on a possible liquidation of the highly leveraged $CRV holding of Michael Egorov

Amber group buying $MAGA Trump t0ken

The memecoin trend is officially reaching new levels as crypto institution, Amber Group, decided to jump on the train and took a position in a major memecoin.

They have acquired almost $500k worth of $MAGA. You can find their wallet below.

You can see here the distribution of this Shitcoin wallet & which narrative the group is playing

You can really tell by the current portfolio of that wallet which narratives they are betting on: GameFi, AI, BTC eco, and memes.

🔥 Hot Narratives

Dolomite Minerals aka POINTS aka TOKEN INCOMING

In my opinion, Arbitrum is the king of L2s. It has great mindshare and one of the most sophisticated ecosystems out there. Its builders are keen to collaborate and have proven to ship.

One of the few tokenless projects recently announced their take on the infamous points program: Dolomite. But they already had Dolomite XP for quite some time too.

The project is a money market and margin trading platform. I have been following Dolomite for quite some time and I am super impressed by their team: hardworking, genuine, and fun (s/o bobo).

As of now, Minerals are heavily favored to those LPing ETH on their platform. USDC also accrues minerals, but at a lower pace. Multipliers are applied for assets with a long deposit time.

If you have some spare ETH/USDC, imo depositing at Dolomite is not a bad shout. But do take into account all the other farms that are currently ongoing.

My personal top 3 farms are currently: Ambient LP (catching Kelp, EigenLayer, Ambient, and Scroll), Blackwing LP (catching Renzo, EigenLayer, Blackwing, and Initia), and now considering adding Dolomite to the mix.

Marketplaces & Infra New Hot Ting?

I saw the following tweet by knower and this got me thinking:

In his tweet he disregards the need for more L1s, but rather for more app-chains. Of course, this has been a trend that we have been seeing for the last three years, where we first had the wave of Cosmos chains hitting the shores, but now with L2/L3 tech we see more rollups too.

It should be apparant that indeed the need for a general L1 is diminishing, whereas specific projects with a product are now able to capture more through launching their own chain, let it be a rollup or Cosmos app-chain.

Knower takes Ondo as an example, simply because it brings some key tech to the table that opens the gate for broader, real world money to flow into crypto. Other RWA-like projects such as $CHEX and $DEXTF have been catching a bid.

$CHEX has captured a lot of CTs attention and has been on a roar ever since it bridged to Ethereum from EOS. $DEXTF might be the underdog between these three and still trading at miniscule marketcap as opposed to aforementioned plus has a very key relationship with Deutsche Bank.

Nevertheless, there are also other projects that fall into the “marketplace tailored L1s”, such as HyperLiquid and Blackwing. Two other projects that have been discussed quite often in this newsletter.

You are still able to hoard points for both, although Hyperliquid is nearing its TGE moment.

📈 HTF Price Action Scenarios

Gm frens!

Last week price dumped lower putting a halt on the bullish continuation. I mentioned it could take several weeks, possibly even months before I’ll be interested in longing again. Right now sells are clearly in control and until that changes I’ll be sitting on the sidelines watching it unfold.


  • HTF re-accumulation

  • Sells in control

  • Nothing to do but wait

My anticipation has not changed. I still expect this to be a bigger re-accumulation as I am bullish on the HTFs. Once money comes back on the long side I’ll look to ride it up. Until then -

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

👁️ Early Opportunities


A modular interoperability solution and are also building an AVS as part of their infra.

Get transactions in on some accounts, bridge with relative size if you already have existing TIA holdings, and repeat every two weeks or so.


An intent-based cross-chain DEX with a points program. Soon their Arbitrum grant arrives, which they are going to use to subsidise gas fees. So be sure to use it when that’s live. Link:

LRTs: Zircuit, Swell, Kelp

The Renzo shitstorm is probably bullish for Kelp as long as they do not fuck it up. I am leverage farming $rsETH on airpuff, be aware of the risks. Link:

Restaking some of my LRTs on Zircuit, a zk rollup with parallelized circuits and AI-enabled security at the sequencer level with over $2B in restaked assets. Link:

Restaking some on Karak as well despite the current FUD. It yields a 3x multiplier on swell points for rswETH at the moment. Link & codes:, 6mRWr, sXE2U, s1mbX.

MorpheusAI deposits are closing soon. I threw in a bit of stETH as MOR launches on 8th of May. Link:

ZK Tech Related Stuff

ZK tech related stuff like aggregation, proving and verification layers is next frontier of modular stack. RiscZero Trusted Setup Ceremony is open and I'm in the queue. Posted a thread here:

Think could be an interesting airdrop to farm (like lagrange, which is eigenlayer based parallel prover but there idk about strategy rn aside restaking with operators that secure lagrange AVS).


Started to run a few nodes in hope for airdrops. For example taiko with the guide here:

Also, 0G validator and Zora and Linea fullnodes (all with EasyNode:
