🔥 Hot Narratives

ZKSync Launch Date

The zkSync team recently put out a very important tweet:

They confirmed Mainnet deployment for June 6th. This also means that their token drop is very close. Many anticipate that the zkSync airdrop will be of the same significance as the Arbitrum airdrop and many farmers will be rewarded with high $$ drops.

Expect the airdrop checker to be launched relatively soon.

The airdrop will likely have positive effects on the zkSync ecosystem. Memecoins such as $ZORRO already experience some positive winds.

Be wary that the airdrop may be disappointing as was the case for StarkNet. Anything can (and will) go wrong in this industry.

That being said, the zkSync token launch will present significant opportunities upon launch including arbitrage and concentrated LPing for fees.

Best of luck.

L3s on Arbitrum Orbit & Arbitrum Ecosystem

We are noticing the emergence of L3s built on top of L2s. DegenSensei put out this tweet which revealed some interesting facts, click the Tweet for full read (make sure to like it as a collective Castle gesture):

In essence, he highlights how many of the new L3s are built on top of the Arbitrum Orbit tech stack.

So far, Arbitrum has been good in the gutter. However, the Arbitrum Orbit adoption over the year shows that Arbitrum is a major leading their respective market. Yes, the unlocks have been unfavorable for the $ARB price, but I do think that the current environment is a prime opportunity to get some pools going on $GRAIL.

The Camelot team is very much aligned with the Arbitrum ecosystem and related L3s, such as $DMT. If you are not keen on getting exposure to any of Arbitrum’s beta’s I highly recommend getting in on the pools on Camelot.

I have talked about this in a prior newsletter, but I really do think that farming xGRAIL in the current market environment is a very simply trick on getting good exposure to Arbitrum overall.

📈 HTF Price Action Scenarios

Gm frens!

Last week I wanted to see some sideways chop on around the 8h timeframe for the MA’s to catch up to price. We see exactly that happening right now. This is the re-accumulation of the current push and all I’m waiting for now is a clear sign of strength that will take us out of the consolidation.

  • HTF re-accumulation

  • Big impulse validating the re-accumulation

  • Sideways price action allowing the MAs to catch up

  • Waiting for strength

In order for me to look for longs again I want to either see price break above these local highs and get involved there OR break down for another liquidity grab (spring) and pumping from there. Either way, it’s too early now, I want to see just a little bit more confirmation.

Overall, the market looks good, and I’m ready to pull the trigger soon - patience frens.

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