June Community Update

3 min readJun 3, 2024


Archimedes Update — Our updates and ecosystem round-up monthly newsletter. Packed full of news about both the industry and our ecosystem.

Bitcoin and DeFi Industry Updates

  1. Bitcoin Reaches New All-Time Highs Bitcoin has been experiencing a significant rally, reaching new all-time highs in May 2024. The surge has been driven by the explosive growth of Bitcoin ETFs, particularly the BlackRock iShares Bitcoin Trust, which crossed the $10 billion mark in assets under management in just seven weeks. This rapid growth has fueled optimism that Bitcoin ETFs could eventually surpass gold ETFs in assets under management​ (The Block)​.
  2. Spot Bitcoin ETFs Surge The launch of multiple spot Bitcoin ETFs by major financial institutions like BlackRock, Fidelity, and Bitwise has greatly influenced the cryptocurrency market. These ETFs have seen substantial inflows, with BlackRock’s Bitcoin ETF amassing 250,000 BTC and Fidelity’s ETF crossing $10 billion in AUM. This surge in ETF popularity highlights increasing institutional interest and confidence in Bitcoin​ (CoinMarketCap)​​.
  3. Expansion of Bitcoin DeFi Projects The Bitcoin ecosystem is expanding with new DeFi projects and Layer-2 solutions. Notable developments include the rise of BRC-20 tokens, which bring Ethereum-like fungible token functionality to Bitcoin, and the increasing use of the Lightning Network for faster and cheaper transactions. These innovations are transforming Bitcoin’s utility, making it a more versatile platform for decentralized finance applications​ (OKX)​.
