Here's the latest intelligence on the tokens and markets contributing to and growing the Tokenised Earth Economy and its relevance to ReFi.
Earth State Markets
A year ago in April, Bitcoin was trading at over $60k; today, it’s 40% lower. Tradfi is also down heavily. Inflation numbers are at record highs all over the world. US consumers have been selling for tax obligations; Covid seems to be spreading in China again with intense lockdowns in Shanghai. Massive supply delays for goods are being felt everywhere and the war continues in Ukraine. On a positive note, hopefully, (there can’t be much more negative news, surely): is the bottom in? Many are predicting some short-term bullish movement.

ℹ️ Remember that DAO’s with a rebase mechanism should be valued on their treasuries, and market cap increases are a more important metric than token prices, as high yields try to outpace price fluctuations.
This week we analyse the Osmosis $ION token, which remains something of a mystery. This is the second native staking token of the Osmosis network, created to govern how DeFi protocols will be built on the base Osmosis protocol and chain infrastructure. We postulate that this has potential to evolve ReFi liquidity innovations that can be built using the Osmosis network, leveraging its strong stakeholders community and token economy.

🌍 For the Earth!
Let's use the power of the crypto markets and ReFi to positively change the Earth State as we grow the Tokenised Earth Economy.
Join us every Tuesday at 15:00 UTC for a weekly conversation in the Earth State Twitter Space, where we share intelligence with the thought-leaders, problem-owners and solution-builders of this new economy. This week, we'll be joined by Tat Lam and Chris Gee, discussing their work in digital literacy and their research into user requirements within the communities they work with.
Look out for next week's Earth State Briefing, as it falls on Earth Day, with a focus on ReFi Access.
