In this week’s episode of Market Talks, Cointelegraph welcomes Average Joe’s Crypto, a research analyst and writer. He authors his own blog, which focuses on all things crypto, Web3 and decentralized finance (DeFi).Without wasting any time, we jump straight into why artificial intelligence (AI) tokens have been going parabolic recently. Why have tokens that use artificial intelligence in some way been having their moment in the sun, and is this a trend that will continue into the future or is it just a passing fad? There have recently been a number of memecoins that have been moving upw, too. We get into why this is the case and which memecoins you should be keeping an eye on.There has been a sense of newfound euphoria in the market since we’ve seen consecutive green candles across the board. This has also brought out a lot of influencers spamming Twitter with low-cap coins that are performing surprisingly well, but what should you make of this current sentiment, and will it be short-lived?For some people in the crypto space, it’s difficult to detach themselves from everything happening in the market and take a step back to look at events that are taking place outside of crypto. We take a look at what some of these events might be and if you should be paying attention to them.Even though the first month of 2023 is over, there is still a lot this year could have to offer. We take a look at some predictions for the year and rate their outcome on a “low, medium and high” scale to work out the probability of each prediction coming to fruition. One of the major events for this year is the staked Ether unlock. We discuss how it will play out and who is positioned well to benefit in the Ether (ETH) liquid-staked derivatives market.Make sure to stay tuned until the end to get all of these insights and more.
