On June 27th, the hacker group Anonymous released a video titled "Message from Anonymous to Do Kwon" stating that they would look into Do Kwon’s entire history since he entered the crypto space to see what they could learn and bring to light. 

Interestingly, the prices of LUNA and UST increased significantly after the video was released. LUNA increased 1.5 times from $1.92 to $2.76, while UST increased 8 times from $0.011 to $0.089.

The EVMOS token remained in third place. Evmos's block time on the public testnet on June 30th was incredibly fast at 1.7 seconds. The mainnet version of Evmos is expected to be released soon. Besides, the Evmos Hackathon will be hosted by Web3 Scholarship on July 18th, with the participation of the Nomad and Cosmos Space teams. 

The Celsius Network project's CEL token took fourth place. The price of CEL has been declining steadily for the past 7 days as Celsius is experiencing liquidity issues and is on the edge of going bankrupt.

The table below compared the number of wallets created in different chains from Jan 2022 to July 2022. In this regard, Ethereum was the blockchain with the highest wallets created, followed by BNB Chain and Polygon.

In particular, BNB Chain had an impressive new wallet creation growth rate at 36%. With the current growth rate, BNB Chain will soon surpass Ethereum to become the blockchain with the most wallet addresses.

Near and Optimism were the two blockchains with the highest percentage of new wallet creation at 610% and 686%, respectively. This demonstrated the expansion and widespread usage of these two blockchains.

Top 10 Cryptocurrencies in the last 10 years

Let's look at the cryptocurrency market's evolution during the last ten years, from July 2013 to July 2022.

  • The number one position was securely held by none other than the crypto king Bitcoin. For the past ten years, no token has been able to replace Bitcoin. It gradually became a common asset that everyone wanted to own. Bitcoin was also the biggest market influencer.
  • The second place had a slight shift from LTC to XRP and ETH. In particular, ETH had consistently placed second only a year after launching. This was because Ethereum enabled developers to create dApps easily using Solidity.
  • The third place shifted slightly from NMC, NXT, LTC, and XRP to a stablecoin called USDT. The fourth place was also a stablecoin called USDC. This demonstrated that stablecoins had a significant influence on the market. Despite the fact that USDT had many rumors, this stablecoin maintained its place.
  • The Binance exchange's BNB token was ranked sixth. There is no reason not to believe that the BNB token will eventually overtake USDT and USDC for the third place.

Despite numerous challenges, XRP had held firmly in the top ten since 2014. Considering two years in a row, over 70% of tokens were able to hold on to the next season. However, only BTC survived from 2013 until 2022.
