Arthur Hayes keeps pilling on $PENDLE

Despite Pendle correcting heavily, Arthur Hayes has been buying a lot of tokens.

He is now holding 1.5mln tokens (~$7.4mln) and it seems that he is not done accumulating,

Machi Big Brother Farming $FRIEND with Size

Machi became a huge $FRIEND holder buy aping with size as you can see below.

Lets see the tokens distribution on Base Scan.

$FRIEND top 4 holders on Basescan

Holder #1 & #2 are liquidity pool.

Holder #3 is the contract holding the $FRIEND for the different Clubs (new feature of Friend Tech).

Holder #4 (0xf0ea..df3d), so the single biggest INDIVIDUAL holder of $FRIEND…

… is Machi Big Bro.

Machi Big Bro Wallet Address

Currently, Machi is holding 1.5mln $FRIEND and he is using around 1 million to LP in the FRIEND/wETH pool that is currently yielding high % APR.

Fantasy Top, New Flavor of the Month

Fantasy Top is only a week old and has become the hype of CT.

The project is a clever combination of social and gaming, for those unaware Francesco wrote a great thread covering the project:

If you are bored and want to have some fun, go check it out.

The main tip we found is that you should not buy random packs, but rather look on Twitter and try to gauge which account will get some attention in the coming weeks. Then look on the marketplace for those accounts for cheap value.

This is much more better bang for your buck then opening random packs.

But, oh boy, that dopamine of opening a pack 😉 

Ekubo Airdrop Live

I have recommended Ekubo in the past as a good airdrop to farm. Today they announced to airdrop 33% to their community! Making it a huge drop!

Go check your wallets if you have ever LP’d on Ekubo:$EKUBO

$SPEC Alfa

The legend Ericonomic was so kind to share this write-up on SpectralFi on Base for us:

About SPEC:

  • Many Smart Money is in (its almost crazy and weird that there is so much inside).

  • Main concern is the airdrop, that was 8% of the total supply splited among 3% on base and 5% on eth.

  • Criteria for the airdrop can be found here.

  • Base: 1.9M claimed (still 1.1M left to claim)

  • Ethereum: nobody can claim it right now because its not enabled (no SC yet). This is the biggest concern, but looks like ppl who will be eligible for this airdrop wont be as jeet as base ppl (they're data scientist and stuff like this)

Made an arkham dashboard to track all the spec sitting on teams wallets:

Also attaching a picture of the tags for every wallet.

Im bullish, but i think best approach is to wait until eth airdrop is live.

📈 HTF Price Action Scenarios

Gm frens!

Another week of boring price action and no confirmation of my bullish thesis. This time I want to bring attention back to the HTF and zoom out a bit to see where we’re at

  • Confirmed accumulation schematic

  • Now in mark-up

  • Continuations via re-accumulations

  • Clear uptrend

So while the lower timeframes might look grim right now, the bigger picture is still quite clear. Of course, price can do anything it wants, but right now it’s trending higher so there’s no reason to expect it to do otherwise. Now it’s all about waiting for the LTF to sync up with the HTF again before looking for new longs. Until that happens -

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