🥛 Weekly Recap: 3 big winners 🤑

Today’s edition is brought to you by ARCrypto – the DeFi education company trailblazing on-chain asset management.

When you have a vision to change the world for the better, this is what it looks like.

GM. This is the Milk Road. We’re like Costco, we serve you the best samples of crypto.

Here’s what we got today:

  • The 3 biggest winners of the week 🤑

  • Milk Road Radio: the new weekly roll up is in 🎙️

  • Wanna work with the Milk Man? 🥛

  • More Bitcoin ETFs could be coming soon 🍪


That’s another week in the crypto books! Let’s recap all the action with the biggest winners of the week. 

We got 3 of ‘em (plus an honorable mention)…

1/ Bitcoin Ordinals

Ordinals (aka Bitcoin NFTs) first launched back in Jan 2023. 

So when it comes to the NFT game, Bitcoin is still a baby. It’s supposed to still be crawling… but turns out this baby has been kicking ass and taking names. 

In fact, over the last week, Bitcoin had more NFT sales volume than Ethereum, Solana, Polygon, and Mythos… COMBINED. 

Not to mention… the top 3 most traded NFT collections this week were all on Bitcoin. (according to CryptoSlam)

The NFT rookie is putting up MVP numbers. 

2/ Toncoin ($TON)

Toncoin is a Layer 1 blockchain created by Telegram in 2018. 

It got a ton of hype and raised a whopping $1.7B in its token sale. (Fun fact: it’s the 2nd most successful ICO ever behind EOS – raised $4.1B).

Then, Telegram ran into trouble with the SEC (surprise surprise) and was forced to abandon the project. 

That’s when a group of developers decided to take Toncoin’s open-source code and pick up where Telegram left off. 

Fast forward to today…Toncoin has turned into a giant. 

  • $TON’s price hit $7.59 earlier this week – a new all-time high.

  • Entered the top 10 cryptocurrencies by market cap. It’s currently sitting at #9 and is close to passing Dogecoin for the #8 spot. 

  • Fees and revenue have also skyrocketed recently. Daily revenue hit $125K on Monday – the second biggest day ever. 

3/ Base

Activity on Base has exploded this week: 

  • It had ~3M daily transactions every day this week. 

  • In fact, it almost had 2x as many transactions as any other Layer 2 yesterday. Base had 3M, while Arbitrum had 1.6M.

P.S. – Milk Road Pro is dropping a whole guide to Base (including the 5 biggest opportunities) tomorrow! It’s a certified banger, you don’t wanna miss it.

Honorable Mention: The ‘Bitcoin Sign Guy’.

His government name is Christain Langalis. 

Under this roof, he’s known as ‘Bitcoin Sign Guy’. And in 2017, he famously photo-bombed a Congressional testimony…

7 years later, Bitcoin Sign Guy is now auctioning off the sign! 

The crazy part? He’s already received a private offer for 5 BTC (worth ~$343,000). 

Don’t let your memes just be memes, kids. They could sell for the price of a house one day!


ARCrypto is here to shake things up…

Out of 2,700 vaults on Enzyme, Managed Vault ranks sixth in AUM and third in popularity among depositors. And, over the last six months, it is up a whopping 93%! 

Not too bad for a decentralized platform.
