Cryptocurrency Market Performance in April 2024

April was a difficult month for cryptocurrencies, with the total market capitalization falling by 11.3% as the momentum built up in the previous months shifted to the downside. Some of the major contributors to this reversal include changes in rate cut expectations, geopolitical risks, and a slowdown in bitcoin ETF spot flows.

Nonetheless, positive developments were also recorded during the month. Six different cryptocurrency-based spot ETFs began trading in Hong Kong on April 30 following approval from regulators. Additionally, the total supply of US dollar-pegged stablecoins has reached its highest level in two years. USDT and USDC stablecoin supplies are steadily increasing, indicating sustained capital flows into the cryptocurrency market.

Most of the top ten coins by market capitalization closed the month in negative territory. TON and BNB managed to show relative strength with a gain of 1.0% and a slight decline of 1.4% respectively. TON’s improved performance can be attributed to the popularity its ecosystem has gained recently, reaching all-time highs in April in terms of monthly active addresses and total value locked (TVL) in the network. BNB has continued to be one of the best performing stocks in recent months.

ETH and BTC both saw declines of around 8% in April. However, the approval of three BTC spot ETFs and three ETH spot ETFs in Hong Kong marked a positive milestone for the two major cryptocurrencies. XRP and SHIB saw larger price declines, falling 17.1% and 19.2% respectively over the month. DOGE, ADA, SOL and AVAX showed the weakest performance among the leaders, losing around 30% by the end of the month.

Decentralized Finance (DeFi)

In line with broader market trends, April was a quiet month for the DeFi sector, which saw a 0.7% decline in TVL. Among the top ten chains, Merlin Chain, a native Bitcoin layer-2 solution, grew the most with a monthly gain of 1000% and a TVL exceeding $1 billion. As far as protocols go, notable performers include Pendle and Hyperliquid. Pendle’s TVL reached $5 billion and its cumulative trading volume surpassed $15 billion. Hyperliquid’s TVL surpassed $435 million, surpassing Aptos, Near, and Cardano.

The NFT market also declined in April, posting a 21% monthly decline in total sales volume to $1.11 billion. Bitcoin collections continued to steal the spotlight, with four of the top five collections in terms of sales volume for the month based on Bitcoin. These collections, namely Ordinals, PUPS, WZRD, and NodeMonkes, collectively recorded sales volume of $423 million. Sentiment towards Ethereum holdings has remained relatively poor.

In terms of NFT sales volumes across major chains, Bitcoin leads with $567 million, followed by Ethereum with $241 million and Solana with $153 million. On a percentage basis, Bitcoin saw a 5% decline in total volume, while Ethereum and Solana saw significant drops near or above 50%. These numbers suggest that collectors have recently shifted their attention towards Bitcoin-based offerings.
