Here’s what happened in crypto today


During a Twitter Space, Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao believes the next Bitcoin bull run could come as soon as 2025. Meanwhile, Bitcoin miners made some pretty hefty gains via transaction fee revenue in the second quarter, thanks to Ordinals and a surge in Bitcoin’s price, the Grammy Awards will consider music with artificial intelligence (AI) elements and the race for a spot Bitcoin ETF is heating up in the United States. 

Binance CEO tips next Bitcoin bull run

Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao has tipped 2025 as the most likely year to kick off the next Bitcoin bull run. 

During a July 5, “ask me anything” session on Twitter, CZ explained how the price of Bitcoin has historically moved in four-year bull cycles.

While he admitted that he can’t see the future, Zhao emphasized the upcoming Bitcoin halving event in 2024 and declared 2025 to be the most likely year for the next bull market.

CZ’s comments come after Coin Metrics found that Bitcoin miners were able to make $184 million in mining fees in the second quarter of 2023.

These fees were a 270% increase from the first quarter, and more than the previous five quarters combined, according to the firm.

The crypto analytics firm said the jump in fees was due to Bitcoin’s recent price surge that bolstered ‘top-line revenues” and the advent of BRC-20, a new token standard on Bitcoin introduced in March which uses Ordinals inscriptions to mint and transfer fungible tokens on the network.

Nasdaq joins BlackRock and Fidelity in refiling spot Bitcoin ETF application

Nasdaq has refiled for a proposed rule change with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission that would pave the way for a spot Bitcoin ETF for the Valkyrie Bitcoin Fund. The July 3 filing includes information on a “surveillance-sharing agreement” with Coinbase, as well as details of a June 30 agreement with Coinbase that would give Nasdaq “supplemental access to data regarding spot Bitcoin trades.”

The move came mere days after asset manager BlackRock refiled its Bitcoin ETF application after the SEC reportedly said that recent ETF filings with Nasdaq and Cboe were “not sufficiently clear and comprehensive.”

The race to list a spot Bitcoin ETF is heating up in the United States, with at least eight issuers vying for approval as of July 5. Issuers expect to hear back from the SEC in August and September, with final approval deadlines slated between December 2023 and March 2024.

Music with AI-created elements eligible for Grammy Awards, CEO confirms

The CEO and president of the Recording Academy, Harvey Mason, clarified that AI-generated music will be eligible for the Grammy Awards in 2024. He said:

“AI, or music that contains AI-created elements is absolutely eligible for entry and for consideration for Grammy nomination. Period.”

However, the Academy would not give a Grammy or a nomination to the AI portion of the track, which includes AI voice model. “We don’t want to see technology replace human creativity. We want to make sure technology is enhancing, embellishing, or additive to human creativity,” he warned.
