Now, let us begin with the main topics of today.
After closing at a record eighth red week in a row, Bitcoin began regaining some of its value and is now sitting at $30,399.
The average 7-day ROI of the crypto market is +2.53%, with BNB being the biggest winner among the top 10 crypto assets with a +12.16% gain.
The three leading stable coins (Tether, USDC, and BUSD) remain with a solid peg despite losing $7B of their liquidity over the last week.
Terra Lost $3B In BTC Reserves
Following the Terra (LUNA) crash, many have questioned what happened to Luna’s Bitcoin reserve, which was worth $3B at the time of the collapse.
According to an official tweet from May 16, over 80,000 BTC got swapped in an attempt to save the TerraUSD peg. The strategy did not work as both of Terra’s cryptocurrencies crashed, leaving the Luna Foundation Guard with less than $100M worth of digital assets in just six days.
G7 Countries Give Deadline For Crypto Regulation
After last week’s stablecoin events, G7 nations have demanded rapid and complete regulation of cryptocurrencies. The countries’ finance ministers and central bankers are requesting that the Financial Stability Board (FSB) advance consistent and systematic regulation before the next G7 meeting (June 2022).
FTX US Adds Stock Trading For US Users
FTX US has just announced that its new platform, FTX Stocks, would allow users to trade stocks and ETFs. The service will enable select US consumers to trade and invest using Nasdaq-routed orders. FTX states that stock trades will be commission-free and that users can pay for their investments with the stablecoin USDC.

Despite being in what many consider the 4th crypto winter, there is good news.
In a recent report from A16Z on the state of cryptocurrencies, the US venture capital firm predicts an increased chance of DAOs, social tokens, and decentralized social networks exploding in a few years.
If that comes true, we will be looking at a completely new Web3 market that will give creators and developers much more room for growth.
While we currently see little movement on the markets, TradFi folks are gradually moving their capital into crypto. This process is slow and silent, but it’s happening right now. Many signs indicate a potential crypto reversal that can lead to a continuation of a bull run.
