The RedStone Oracles research team unveils their detailed findings around liquid staking featuring CoinDesk Indices

BAAR, Switzerland, Nov. 7, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — RedStone, originator of the next-generation oracles platform for decentralized finance, today announced the release of its LSTfi and Staking Report, The Ultimate Q4 2023 Market Overview. This Ethereum-focused report is the most comprehensive of its kind, analyzing over 50 projects featuring prominent digital asset leaders including CoinDesk Indices, EigenLayer, Lido and StakeWise (expected to launch V3) among others.

“We’ve dedicated months to researching and building out this unparalleled report,” said Marcin Kaźmierczak, Co-Founder and COO of RedStone. “For the third time (and not the last one), our RedStone research team showcases the ultimate crypto sector overview, and we believe this time around the bar has been raised higher with the quotes of LSTfi projects founders and detailed insights revealed around Ethereum-focused LSTfi protocols.”

CoinDesk Indices (CDI), a subsidiary of CoinDesk and the leading provider of digital asset indices by AUM since 2014, stands out as a crucial component of RedStone’s report. Earlier this year, CESR™, the composite ether staking rate which is administered by CoinFund and calculated and published by CoinDesk Indices, was introduced to fulfill specific needs for the marketplace. Three broad use cases for CESR are currently being adopted by market participants: benchmarking, research, and risk transfer.

Andy Baehr, Managing Director at CoinDesk Indices, added, “We are encouraged to see CESR’s adoption as a critical piece of market structure and a bridge joining the digital and traditional financial industries. RedStone’s timely and illuminating research affirms CESR’s critical role in the understanding and using Ethereum staking rewards.”

Ethereum’s conversion to Proof of Stake not only created the foundation for the liquid staking ecosystem as described in the RedStone report, but also created the LSTfi sector where RedStone as an Oracle pioneers with the versatility of LST data feeds. The Merge also delivered a native crypto rate to finance that can serve as a critical piece of market structure. CESR now delivers this in a structured way, built by firms with the experience needed for the marketplace. The staking rate that Ethereum validators generate through participation in the consensus and execution layers and by exhibiting implementation skill has immediate applicability in DeFi, centralized digital asset finance, and traditional finance.

Furthermore, RedStone will present its key report findings during Devconnect in Istanbul (November 13th to 19th), which is this year’s biggest Ethereum gathering worldwide.

Squad Labs announced that its Series A funding round, led by Electric Capital with participation from RockawayX, Coinbase Ventures, L1D, Placeholder, and Mert Mumtaz, will propel the launch of its Fuse smart wallet. The company aims to establish Fuse as a premier solution for securing and compounding personal digital wealth amid the growing onchain economy.

According to the company’s news release on June 12, smart accounts and smart wallets are gaining traction across blockchains as they offer a more intuitive, secure, and programmable user experience. Fuse abstracts seed phrases and provides features like wallet recovery, 2FA capabilities, and enterprise-level security for personal custody, simplifying the choice of storing digital wealth on-chain.

In addition to securing funding, Squad Labs also announced the public testing launch of Fuse on iOS. This move is part of their strategy to expand accessibility and refine functionality ahead of a full market release.

Meanwhile, a recent report from PYMNTS Intelligence explores blockchain’s role in enhancing cross-border payments. It suggests that integrating blockchain can streamline payment processing, enable digital-to-fiat currency conversion, and introduce stablecoins for faster and cost-effective cross-border transactions. Business-friendly decentralized finance (DeFi) solutions further automate and secure transactions via smart contracts, reducing dependence on traditional payment systems and enhancing security and transparency.

TON Blockchain Surpasses Ethereum in Daily Active Users

Published

on

ton-blockchain-surpasses-ethereum-in-daily-active-users

Ethereum’s comparative underperformance relative to TON can be attributed to several factors, notably the migration of a significant portion of its user activity to layer 2 scaling solutions. These solutions were not factored into the comparison with TON.

During a week marked by global crypto market fluctuations and cautious investor sentiment, The Open Network (TON), backed by Telegram, has seen substantial growth in user activity, surpassing Ethereum in daily active users.

Since the beginning of the month, TON and Ethereum have been closely vying for user engagement. However, leveraging Telegram’s extensive user base of 900 million, TON has consistently outpaced Ethereum for ten consecutive days starting June 1.

On June 3, TON achieved a significant milestone with 568,300 daily active addresses (DAAs), according to Artemis data. In contrast, Ethereum has not reached this level of activity since September 13, 2023.

Delving Deeper
Ethereum’s apparent lower activity compared to TON can be attributed to various factors, including the adoption of layer 2 scaling solutions designed to enhance transaction throughput and reduce fees by processing transactions off the main Ethereum blockchain.

Consequently, the majority of Ethereum’s transactional activities have shifted to these layer 2 networks.

For instance, on June 11, the top three Ethereum layer 2 networks—Arbitrum, Base, and Optimism—collectively registered 1.3 million daily active addresses. This highlights that while Ethereum’s primary network may appear less active, substantial transactional volume is occurring on these secondary layers.

New Milestones and Market Performance
Despite the challenges of comparing directly with Ethereum, TON has demonstrated significant growth. Amidst the recent global market volatility, the network’s native token, Toncoin (TON), reached a milestone of $7.76 earlier this month, marking its highest valuation since launch.

Although Toncoin has since experienced a decline of over 12%, industry analysts remain optimistic about its future trajectory.

A pseudonymous analyst, “Crypto King,” has forecasted a potential rise to $10 for TON in the near term, citing its robust user base, rapid infrastructure development, and Telegram’s support.

Another expert, Alex Clay, shares this positive outlook, suggesting short-term price targets of $10.5 to $11.6 for TON despite broader market downturns.

Furthermore, data from Token Terminal indicates promising long-term indicators for TON, showing a 3.6% rise in fully diluted market capitalization, a 76.3% increase in token holders, and a 26.0% growth in revenue and fees over the past 30 days.

Despite a slight decrease in trading volume by 11.6%, these metrics underline a strong underlying growth trend for TON.
