He aquí por qué debería vigilar Uniswap

Si descarta la subida precipitada por Elon Musk, la última semana no ha sido precisamente buena para el mercado de Bitcoin . De hecho, a los ojos de muchos, apenas ha sido bueno: una percepción relativa (obviamente), fomentada por el rendimiento excesivo de la criptomoneda más grande del mundo entre el 12 de diciembre de 2020 y el 8 de enero de 2021.

Bitcoin, durante un período de diez días, estuvo estrictamente limitado por el rango

Y tampoco fue solo Bitcoin, con Ethereum demasiado dentro del rango justo debajo de su 2018-ATH en las listas.

Sin embargo, contrariamente a lo que los maximalistas o los defensores de ETH le harían creer, hay más en el mercado criptográfico que solo Bitcoin o Ethereum. El desempeño reciente del mercado DeFi es un ejemplo de ello, con Uniswap especialmente „superando“ en la mayoría de los parámetros.

Uniswap , uno de los pioneros de los modelos Automated Market Maker (AMM), tenía una cifra de valor total bloqueado de más de $ 3.20 mil millones, en el momento de escribir este artículo, y el DEX también tenía una participación de mercado de más del 40%.

Sin embargo, TVL por sí solo no suele ser suficiente para ofrecer una imagen completa

De hecho, como observó IntoTheBlock, aunque TVL a menudo solo da una idea del lado de la oferta de la ecuación, se puede utilizar para evaluar la liquidez de la plataforma.

Considere esto: durante dos meses, los proveedores de liquidez recibieron recompensas de UNI bajo el programa de recompensas de minería de liquidez de Uniswap. ¿Que paso despues? Bueno, tan pronto como terminó el programa de incentivos, su liquidez se redujo en un 58%.

‚Thousands‘ of executives are interested in bitcoin

Institutional bitcoin investor: ‚Thousands‘ of executives are interested in bitcoin

Bitcoin has become a bit of a phenomenon on Wall Street and in the corporate world in recent months.

It started in August when MicroStrategy bought Bitcoin with money from its own coffers, showing the world that, yes, BTC can be a long-term investment and store of value. Square followed, then, more recently, a number of smaller Profit Secret companies and even Wall Street funds opened their eyes and ears to what was going on in the crypto space. Compared to the past, there are now hundreds of millions, though probably more like billions, in the crypto asset space that have been siphoned off by institutional players.

And that may not be all, according to Michael Saylor, CEO of MicroStrategy.

Will „corporate America“ buy more bitcoin?

Michael Saylor recently spoke to CNBC to share his views on the crypto asset market.

There, it was revealed that Saylor will be hosting a digital conference to allow Corporate America executives to learn more about Bitcoin and how they can implement it into their businesses:

„We will have thousands of corporate executives, board members, directors and advisors coming together the first week of February. They all want to find out how they can incorporate #Bitcoin into their balance sheet or P&L…We will open source it.“ Wow.@michael_saylor total #bitcoin animal on CNBC just now….

…saying he is hosting in early Feb a bitcoin conference for corporate leaders to explain the #btc value proposition. Also will make publicly available his company execution playbook.

1000s of people to attend!!!
– Dan Tapiero (@DTAPCAP) January 22, 2021

What’s interesting here is that Saylor expects „thousands“ of people to gather to discuss the cryptocurrency phenomenon.

MicroStrategy will disclose its playbook and internal documents regarding exposure to bitcoin to try to give American companies a better understanding of how they should deal with volatility, regulatory trends and other issues that can arise from investing a cash position in BTC.

Analysts expect these corporate inflows, which may eventually arrive, to drive this market way up.

What’s next for Binance Coin (BNB) after its new record high?

BNB is trading above support at $ 39.

Technical indicators are bullish.

BNB follows a short term ascending support line

Binance Coin (BNB) price hit a new all-time high on December 29, 2020. Since then, it has continued to rise. BNB should continue to climb towards the target located at $ 50, and potentially towards $ 70.

BNB hits new record high

On June 22, 2020, BNB hit a record high of $ 39.51. It then began a considerable upward movement, descending to a low of $ 6.38 on March 13. Since then, that said, it has been on the rise.

On December 29, 2020, it hit a new high, rising to $ 44.90.

The old resistance, located at $ 39, should now serve as support.

Cryptocurrency trader @Tradingtank pointed to a BNB chart, saying the price will likely go up. He presented targets located at 46 and 52 dollars.

The technical indicators in the daily chart are bullish, supporting the continuity of the upward movement although the chart is disproportionately extended.

That said, knowing that BNB is moving at its highest level to date and therefore has no resistance above its current price, we need to use a fibonacci extension in order to establish our next targets.

Additionally, the two hour chart shows BNB is also following an ascending support line. The latter coincides with the minor support located at $ 42. As long as the BNB is moving above this zone, the trend is up.

Similar to the daily data, the two hour chart indicators are also bullish

The wave count suggests that BNB is likely in wave 3 of a long-term bullish impulse (white below), which started in March.

A plausible target for the top of the entire movement would be at $ 69.58. This would give us a 1: 1.61 ratio for 1: 3 waves, which is common in bullish impulses.

The short-term chart shows that BNB is expected to peak in sub-wave 3 (in orange) while the sub-wave count is shown in black.

The most plausible targets for the top of Sub-Wave 3 are found at $ 46 and $ 50-51. They are obtained using a combination of fibonacci extensions (in orange) and projections (in black).

Stillingsannonser viser Spotify Mulling Crypto-betalinger

Spotify forbereder angivelig å legge til kryptobetalinger og styrke sin representasjon i Libra Association.
Spotify har lagt ut en jobbåpning for tilknyttet direktør for betalingsstrategi og innovasjon, hvor detaljene peker mot kryptoadopsjon.

Spotify Ønsker å legge til Crypto-betalinger

Assisterende direktørs rolle vil være å lede „Spotifys aktivitet innenfor Libra stablecoin-prosjektet og bredere digital eiendel og kryptovaluta“, ifølge stillingslisten.

Det nye personellet vil være ansvarlig for engasjement med Libra Association, som representerer Spotifys medlemskap i konsortiet.

Selskapet forventer også at rekrutteringen vil vurdere andre betalingsalternativer ved hjelp av “distribuert hovedboksteknologi, blokkjeder, kryptovalutaer, stablecoins, Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDCs) og andre digitale eiendeler.”

Crypto-betalinger er fortsatt et grått område for de fleste digitale selskaper. Likevel har det fått oppmerksomheten til det bredere FinTech-rommet, spesielt etter kunngjøringen av Facebooks Vekten, nå kalt „Diem“, og den kinesiske CBDC-lanseringen.

Spotify er verdens ledende lydstrømningsplattform med en brukerbase på mer enn 320 millioner dollar. Dens brukere panorerer over hele verden med abonnementer som for øyeblikket belastes via tradisjonelle betalingsmåter, for eksempel kredittkort eller bankoverføring.

Silk Road Bitcoin: This company wants to help the US government sell $ 1 billion in Bitcoin

On-chain analytics and security firm Chainalysis has announced the launch of its „Asset Recovery Program,“ designed to help government agencies and bankruptcy practitioners handle, store, recover and monitor seized assets.

The program was launched just days after the seizure of over $ 1 billion worth of Bitcoin Evolution review by US authorities – belonging to the now-defunct Silk Road marketplace – in one of the largest seizures of cryptocurrencies to date.

US Government Bitcoin Sale

The authorities did not get hold of Bitcoin on Silk Road by chance. Chainalysis‘ tools and investigative support services have been heavily involved in helping judicial authorities identify and investigate the crypto wallets used by the owners of the marketplace – funds that have been or should be used to help sell narcotics on the dark web – Silk Road marketplace to facilitate.

However, owning such a large amount of Bitcoin is a problem. The only two options available are to either store the money or eventually sell it in the open market. This is where the new Chainalysis program comes in. , The company in a message:

„As law enforcement becomes more sophisticated in investigating illegal activities related to cryptocurrencies, including the confiscation of illegal proceeds, the need for digital asset realization services grows“

Chainalysis Chief Revenue Officer Jason Bonds said in a statement that the maturation of the cryptocurrency market means its use by good and bad actors is increasing in similar fashion.

But the company can help, as he writes:

„As our government partners become increasingly successful in eradicating the bad actors, helping them recover and realize assets is a natural next step.“

In short, the US government could soon sell the bitcoins it owns … facilitated by Chainalysis.

Good for crypto … maybe not

Asset Reality, which manages and exploits seized assets for public and private sector clients around the world, will work with Chainalysis to determine how to sell the seized funds.

The team consists of legal and law enforcement practitioners who provide strategic advisory services and training to law enforcement agencies around the world on cryptocurrency and other complex assets.

This step is not the first for Chainalysis. Earlier this year, the company’s services were similarly used in high-profile law enforcement operations involving similar civil forfeiture actions against cryptocurrencies – such as terrorist financing and North Korean hacking cases.

But that begs another question: is a company that tracks crypto addresses working against the very ethos of crypto (privacy) – or not?

Controversial opinion: the DOJ should not sell seized Bitcoins, it should begin stockpiling a national reserve of BTC to back the USD after the fiat era ends

SEC should declare XRP a security, says Peter Brandt

Can the regulatory situation of XRP ever be resolved?

Veteran trader and charts analyst, Peter Brandt, is the latest figure in the cryptomoney community to dispute the regulatory status of XRP.

According to him, XRP is a security, which means that the currency should be under the regulatory scope of the US Securities and Exchange Commission.

Ripple Hit with Another Lawsuit Alleging XRP Securities Law Violations
„XRP would have been declared a security if the SEC understood crypts,“ Brandt argued in a tweet on 10 November.

Brandt’s comments came in response to a statement by Twitter user Rexiby crypto, who said that „XRP owns almost half of all coins in circulation. According to Brandt, XRP is a „classic case of a market manipulated by a bag-holder“.

Brandt’s comments could apparently be linked to a market report for the third quarter of 2020 from Ripple, one of the most important companies affiliated to XRP. Published on 5 November, the report states that Ripple was actively buying XRP, spending nearly $46 million in currency during the third quarter of 2020. Company executives emphasized that Ripple „is buying – and can continue to buy – XRP to support healthy markets.

Proceeds demand that Ripple’s XRP is an unrecorded value
While Ripple strives to distinguish itself from XRP, the company still owns a significant amount of the currency. According to official records, Ripple owned XRP 60 billion, with 55 billion in escrow accounts as of July 2018. The company is reported to own more than half of the total supply of XRP.

The long-standing regulatory uncertainty surrounding XRP has triggered multiple lawsuits, claiming that XRP is an unregistered security. Although first mentioned in 2018, the SEC has not provided a firm position on this issue to date.

Ripple itself is looking to move abroad because US regulations apparently threaten its business. In late October, the CEO of Ripple’s sponsor and a major technology partner, SBI Holdings, said that Japan is the country to which Ripple is most likely to move if it leaves the US.

In August 2020, US representative Tom Emmer (R-MN) argued that XRP is not a value, but provided little information.

Le bitcoin de nouveau à l’honneur dans les médias comme alternative à l’épargne bancaire et à la surenchère des actions et de l’or

Le prix du Bitcoin a augmenté de plus de 27 % en octobre, avec la plus forte clôture mensuelle jamais enregistrée au-dessus de 13 000 dollars, ce qui a ramené l’attention des grands médias.

En 2020, le Bitcoin a renforcé son statut de réserve de valeur et de protection contre l’inflation et, alors que nous entamons un nouveau cycle haussier, les banques et les médias ont tous commencé à s’y intéresser de près.

Le Wall Street Journal a d’abord couvert MicroStrategy en déclarant la CTB comme un actif de réserve dans son article „‚Cash Is Trash,‘ So Let’s Bet 425 Million on Bitcoin“.

Selon la publication, avec des rendements proches de zéro, „le stress de prendre des dangers sans précédent avec elle est plus susceptible d’augmenter“.

L’article ne met pas vraiment la CTB sous les feux de la rampe autant que le WSJ se concentre sur la MicroStratégie. L’article souligne que la société, qui était en pleine expansion à la fin des années 1990, ne se développe pratiquement plus avec ses dirigeants et son PDG, Michael Saylor, un ardent défenseur de la CTB, impliqué dans des accusations de fraude à la comptabilité civile qui ont été réglées avec la SEC. Mais cette année, les choses ont changé puisque depuis qu’elle a parié sur Bitcoin, ses actions ont doublé.

Mais WSJ a de nouveau couvert Bitcoin ce week-end avec „Bitcoin est de retour à un niveau proche de son plus haut niveau depuis trois ans“, et a dépassé les actions, l’or et d’autres actifs cette année avec ses 90% de rendement. a déclaré Saylor,

„Le Wall Street Journal commence à remarquer Bitcoin et à explorer sa relation avec les marchés financiers au sens large, où les actions américaines à elles seules valent près de 52 billions de dollars“.

La principale cryptocouronne a été l’actif le plus performant de la dernière décennie et le reste cette année encore.

Il est intéressant de noter qu’un dollar investi dans la BTC au premier prix du marché aurait valu 18 073 700 dollars aujourd’hui, alors que la même somme investie dans l’or serait d’un maigre 1,81 dollar, a noté l’analyste de la chaîne Willy Woo.

Au milieu de tout cela, BBC Scotland, une division de la BBC, a également noté que la cryptoconnaie était l’une des „cinq alternatives pour garder vos économies à la banque“.

La publication a noté que dans l’environnement actuel de taux d’intérêt bas, les comptes d’épargne traditionnels ne sont pas l’endroit „le plus rentable“ pour stocker de l’argent à long terme.

La monnaie cryptographique, décrite comme de l’argent „complètement virtuel“ qui est „essentiellement une ligne de code“, est l’une de ces alternatives aux options d’épargne traditionnelles.

Comparée à la monnaie traditionnelle qui peut perdre sa valeur, la cryptographie est un investissement viable, a déclaré Temple Melville de Scotcoin, un projet non gouvernemental qui vise à devenir une pièce numérique officielle en Écosse. Il a ajouté,

„Les gouvernements ont récemment jeté par la fenêtre tous les livres de règles de l’économie.

Le résultat est qu’il y a eu des billions de dollars et de livres, d’euros, de yens, etc. qui ont été imprimés“.

Alors que chaque nouvelle monnaie imprimée réduit le pouvoir d’achat de la monnaie existante, il y aura toujours 21 millions de bitcoins, a-t-il ajouté.

Parmi les autres options, citons l’or, les actions et les parts, les voitures classiques et le whisky.

Bitcoin SV, Dogecoin, Tron-prisanalyse: 6. oktober

Bitcoin kunne ikke lukke over $ 10.800 i hvad der kunne være et bekymrende tegn for tyre på kort sigt. Bitcoin SV droppede ud af den kort stigende kanal, der blev dannet for nylig og kunne se yderligere tab. Dogecoin lå på et niveau af støtte, der måske ikke holdt meget længere. Tron gled under og testede igen et niveau af støtte-vendte modstand.

Bitcoin SV [BSV]

Bitcoin SV lukkede uden for den kortvarige stigende kanal, den handlede inden for. Dette kunne være et tegn på yderligere tab, selvom der stadig var en chance for, at $ 157 support ville blive forsvaret.

Efterspørgslen efter BSV blev overvældet af salgspres de sidste par dage. CMF viste, at der har været flydende ud af markederne de sidste par dage, mens OBV også satte en tendens til at øge salgsvolumen.

Sælgers pres ville sandsynligvis tvinge prisen til at falde under understøttelsen.

Dogecoin [DOGE]

Dogecoin dannede en række lavere højder efter afvisning ved modstand på $ 0,00285.

Dogecoin har også været i en nedadgående tendens i næsten to måneder. Både de korte og langsigtede tendenser var baisse, og efter at have dannet en række lavere højder på en bounce off-støtte var den mest sandsynlige vej for DOGE under support.

RSI viste også den udbredte nedadgående tendens. Det forblev for det meste under 50 med en kort stigning over. Selv når den nåede til oversolgte forhold, blev prisen simpelthen ikke værdsat, især før den begyndte at glide igen.

Det næste niveau for support til aktivet ligger på $ 0,00227.

Tron [TRX]

Aroon-indikatoren viste, at TRX var i en nedadgående tendens siden begyndelsen af september. Aroon Down (blå) har krydset og opholdt sig over Aroon Up (orange) i betydelige perioder i den sidste måned.

På tidspunktet for skrivningen indstillede prisen også nye nedture sammenlignet med de sidste 14 handelssessioner efter en gentest af support-drejet modstandsniveau, $ 0,026.

Det næste niveau af support til TRX ligger på $ 0,0226, selvom $ 0,0248 også kunne fungere som en efterspørgselsregion.

UK forbyr salg av krypto-derivater til detaljinvestorer, sier Move for å spare $ 69 millioner i tap

Storbritannias Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) har forbudt salg av kryptovalutaderivatprodukter til detaljinvestorer i et trekk som de sier vil spare de målrettede kundene £ 53 millioner ($ 68,9 millioner) i tap hvert år.

Forbudet trer i kraft 6. januar 2021

I en uttalelse 6. oktober erklærte regulatoren at salg, markedsføring og distribusjon av derivater inkludert kontrakter for differanse, opsjoner, futures og børshandlede sedler (ETN) av et lokalt eller utenlandsk selskap som opererer i Storbritannia er forbudt. .

Tilsynet sa at derivater basert på digitale eiendeler som bitcoin ( BTC ) eller ethereum ( ETH ) er „dårlig egnet for privatkunder på grunn av skaden de utgjør.“ FCA skisserte en rekke risikoer som de anser å være resultatet av slike produkter. De inkluderer mangel på „pålitelig grunnlag for verdsettelse“ for den underliggende eiendelen, markedsmanipulering og „ekstrem“ prisvolatilitet.

Den uttalte at privatkunder manglet et „legitimt investeringsbehov for å investere i disse produktene“, og at de heller ikke helt forsto derivathandel.

Forbudet, som først ble foreslått i juli 2019, påvirker ikke handel med virtuelle valutaer som bitcoin, som ikke er regulert av FCA

Retailinvestorer som for tiden har slike kryptoderivater, får lov til å beholde dem så lenge de vil, rapporterte Bloomberg. Sheldon Mills, midlertidig administrerende direktør for strategi og konkurranse i FCA, kommenterte:

Betydelig prisvolatilitet, kombinert med de iboende vanskeligheter med å verdsette kryptoassets pålitelig, plasserer detaljistforbrukere med høy risiko for å lide tap ved handel med kryptoderivater. Vi har bevis på at dette skjer i betydelig skala. Forbudet gir et passende beskyttelsesnivå.
