China crypto community favors projects on the Ethereum, Arbitrum and BNB Chain

The China crypto narrative has gathered steam with Hong Kong opening doors to retail crypto trade on Thursday, June 1. Hong Kong’s stance on crypto has put several cryptocurrencies and their blockchains at the center of the narrative, fueling price rallies. 

A recent report by Chinese crypto media, TechFlowPost, compiled details of crypto projects and tokens favored by the community. According to a report released on May 29, there are more than 21 million Chinese-speaking users across Asia, and their most-favored projects are related to Ethereum, Arbitrum and BNB Chain ecosystems.

Ethereum, the dominant Layer-1 blockchain protocol, is the most preferred by Chinese investors at 85.4%. Arbitrum, a leading layer-2 scaling solution, is at 68%, while BNB Chain is at 56.2%.

These three protocols host several decentralized applications (dApps), games, infrastructure and NFT projects. Other protocols that gained relevance in the China crypto narrative are Solana, Optimism, Polygon, Avalanche and Cosmos, the data showed. 

Moreover, experts behind the TechFlowPost report compiled a list of projects in which China-based Venture Capitalists (VCs) have invested in. 

Galxe (GAL), 1inch Network (1INCH), The Graph (GRT), Avalanche (AVAX), Polkadot (DOT) and Filecoin (FIL) are the leading cryptocurrencies in the VCs’ portfolio. These cryptocurrencies are therefore at the center of the China crypto narrative and likely to rally with Hong Kong opening doors to retail crypto trade.

GRT is trading at $0.1327 at the time of writing, gaining 13.6% over the past week as the narrative gained prominence. A similar trend was observed in FIL, whose price rose 12.7% in the past week to reach $4.98 at the time of writing.
