CEX.IO’s Q4 2022 COMPASS: Never Leave Port Without It

Learn about the generational impact of Bitcoin. In one place.


Our COMPASS series continues with the Q4 2022 Report, an in-depth analysis of Bitcoin’s 14-year tenure. Having survived numerous market turbulences and inflationary pressures, BTC proudly stands as the seed that spurred the blossoming of DeFi — a blockchain-based financial ecosystem. In our Q4 COMPASS Report, we examine the whats, hows, and whys of Bitcoin’s long history, and its role as the pioneer of a financial revolution.

As a reminder, we launched this series last year with theCEX.IO COMPASS Q2 2022 Report . That issue delved into DeFi by the numbers, but also such topics as the collapse of Terra and UST, the block space war, liquid staking, Hodler behavior, the source of miner woes, and other exciting areas of crypto.

Then came time for the  CEX.IO COMPASS Q3 2022 Report ,which we probably shouldn’t, but will nonetheless admit we had great fun compiling (we’re nerds like that). The two-part ETH Merge made September 2022 one of most exciting months since the dawn of crypto! The report comprised two parts.

Part One revealed the potential implications and realities of the then up-and-coming Ethereum Merge. This groundbreaking crypto event was set to forever change the crypto landscape, affecting user incentive, network dynamics, and more.

Part Two focused on the then-current state of Bitcoin. Like hawks stalking prey, the CEX.IO team carefully observed how miners, holders, and speculators approached BTC through mid-year turbulence. We then summarized this information and presented it in the Q3 report for your reading pleasure.

So, what does the Q4 Report have in store for you?

  • A detailed look into the inspiring resilience of Bitcoin
  • The currency’s influence on financial inclusion, and the DeFi revolution
  • An in-depth analysis of the diagnostic evidence underpinning Bitcoin’s dominance and longevity
  • Exploring the roots of such dominance (network integrity and a tenacious community)
  • A review of the critical DeFi infrastructure that has been built around Bitcoin
  • And much more!
