Portfolio Vault Update - Week 12

Portfolio Vault Update - Week 12

Over the past 7 days, the share price of the Portfolio Vault went from $66.74 to $72.74, which is a 8.99% increase.


At its March 2024 meeting, the Federal Reserve (Fed) decided to keep the overnight federal funds rate between 5.25% and 5.5%. This is the fifth time in a row the Fed has chosen not to change rates, maintaining them at their highest level in over 22 years. Chairman Jerome Powell stated the Fed is dedicated to reducing inflation to its 2% goal. He mentioned significant progress towards the Fed's dual mandate, noting the reduction in inflation and a strong labour market, which he described as very positive developments.

Market experts had expected the Fed to maintain current rates, influenced by recent labour market data and inflation rates. The Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) did not specify when rate cuts might occur, though predictions suggest the first cut could be in June. The Fed continues to project three rate cuts in 2024, but this is subject to change based on incoming data. Powell highlighted a data-dependent approach, evaluating each decision one meeting at a time.

The FOMC's post-meeting press conference shed light on its current thinking and potential next moves but provided little certainty on the timing for rate reductions. Despite high-interest rates, economic growth has been strong, and inflation has decreased significantly over the last year, leading to raised growth and inflation expectations for 2024. However, Powell pointed out that inflation is still above the target and the labour market is overly tight, adding that the economic outlook remains uncertain.

Powell indicated that while interest rates might have reached their peak for this cycle, any reduction would only happen once there is greater confidence that inflation is steadily moving towards the 2% target. He also mentioned the Fed's readiness to keep rates steady for an extended period if necessary, to ensure inflation decreases significantly. Powell considered achieving a soft economic landing uncertain, yet noted that the risks to the Fed's employment and inflation goals are becoming more balanced, thanks to the recent moderation in the labour market and inflation.

Portfolio Vault Assets update


The Bitcoin ETFs are currently seeing their largest three-day outflow since their inception. This reversal from the previous massive inflows comes after Bitcoin reached an all-time high of $72,000 last week. The outflows totalled over $742 million this week, with the Grayscale Bitcoin Trust experiencing $1.4 billion in outflows alone, in addition to slower inflows into the BlackRock and Fidelity offerings, which are the second and third most popular products, respectively.

Despite the success of spot Bitcoin ETFs, they cannot attract new investments every day. The outflows from GBTC, in particular, seem to be driven by early investors seeking to capitalize on recent all-time highs. Grayscale acknowledged that its diverse shareholder base might engage in various strategies affecting the trust's flows, including gains harvesting, arbitrage trading, and share liquidation for debt repayment in bankruptcy cases.

Bittensor is down 0.84% in the last seven days. The launch of subnets in October was a tremendous success, with subnet slots filling up with exciting projects. Subnets have allowed the creation of a plethora of mechanisms on Bittensor, but the design is not complete. Subnet emissions are currently determined by a group of validators on Subnet 0. This was a good initial way to bootstrap the system, but is not sustainable long term, as it creates centralization around subnet 0.
