Bitcoin är mycket närmare guld än dollar, säger Jerome Powell

Ordföranden för USA:s Federal Reserve noterade att stabila mynt är „en förbättring“ jämfört med kryptovalutor.

Även om Bitcoin och andra kryptovalutor „inte backas upp av någonting“

Även om Bitcoin och andra kryptovalutor „inte backas upp av någonting“ kan de fortfarande fungera som „substitut för guld“, sade Jerome Powell, ordförande för USA:s centralbank, i dag.

Under en videokonferens som anordnades av Bank for International Settlements uttryckte Powell inledningsvis viss kritik mot Crypto Bank och kallade dem „en tillgång för spekulation“. Powell sade följande:

„Kryptotillgångar är mycket volatila – se Bitcoin – och är därför inte riktigt användbara som värdeförvaring. De är inte backade av någonting. De är mer av en tillgång för spekulation.“

Han påpekade dock också att Bitcoin i stället för att konkurrera med fiat för närvarande rör sig mot guldets territorium. Han tillade:

„Det är i huvudsak ett substitut för guld snarare än för dollar.“

Samtidigt erkände han att stabila mynt – kryptotoken som är knutna till verkliga valutor – är „en förbättring“ jämfört med kryptotillgångar.

„I viss mån är en stablecoin uppbackad av suveräna valutor från ledande nationer, det är verkligen en förbättring jämfört med kryptotillgångar, skulle jag vilja säga“, konstaterade Powell och tillade: „Men icke desto mindre, varifrån kommer trovärdigheten?“. Den kommer från den suveräna valutan som är backstop.“

Tidigare idag rapporterade Bloomberg att Federal Reserve Bank of Boston och Massachusetts Institute of Technology gör sig redo att avslöja resultaten av sin forskning om digitala centralbanksvalutor (CBDC) – eller en „digital dollar“.

När Powell talade om CBDC:er i dag förklarade han att Fed potentiellt skulle kunna utveckla en sådan i framtiden, men att det skulle kräva strikt reglering, mycket forskning och en noggrann granskning – precis som alla andra stabila mynt.

„Stabila mynt kan ha en roll att spela med lämplig reglering, men den rollen kommer inte att vara att utgöra grunden för ett nytt globalt monetärt system“, sade Powell. „En global valuta som styrs av ett privat företags incitament är något som kommer att förtjäna och få de högsta förväntningarna på reglering.“

Som CryptoSlate rapporterade har Powell nyligen också sagt att CBDC kan fungera vid sidan av fiatpengar i framtiden.

Departament Sprawiedliwości USA prowadzi dochodzenie w sprawie GameStop

Amerykański Departament Sprawiedliwości dodaje teraz wymiar kryminalny do wydarzeń wokół GameStop, Robinhood i Reddit.

Departament Sprawiedliwości (DoJ) zajmuje się teraz także szalonym rozwojem sytuacji na rynkach finansowych w ostatnich tygodniach.

Jak donosi Wall Street Journal, powołując się na wewnętrzne źródła, Sekcja Oszustw Departamentu Sprawiedliwości USA, czyli dział zajmujący się manipulacjami rynkowymi, łączy siły z biurem prokuratora okręgowego w San Francisco, aby rozpocząć Bitcoin Profit dochodzenie w sprawie platformy handlowej Robinhood i portalu społecznościowego Reddit, które znalazły się w centrum afery związanej z akcjami detalicznego sprzedawcy gier wideo GameStop.

Amerykańscy regulatorzy już przyglądają się zarzutom możliwej manipulacji rynkowej, a amerykańska Komisja Papierów Wartościowych i Giełd (SEC) wydała kilka dni temu oświadczenie w tej sprawie, zapowiadając własne dochodzenie.

Reddit do wspólnego zakupu akcji GME

Ponieważ afera wokół GameStop, w której drobni inwestorzy podżegali się wzajemnie na portalu społecznościowym Reddit do wspólnego zakupu akcji GME, rozprzestrzeniła się teraz na kryptowaluty i inne papiery wartościowe i nadal częściowo trwa, SEC wstrzymał teraz obrót akcjami samej SpectraScience, ponieważ był to kolejny „cel“ drobnych inwestorów.

Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC), regulator handlu instrumentami pochodnymi, również bada, czy Reddit traders mogli obrać za cel rynek srebra po tym, jak handel niektórymi akcjami został zawieszony, jak podaje Wall Street Journal.

W przeciwieństwie jednak do CFTC i SEC, dochodzenie Departamentu Sprawiedliwości ma charakter karny, co oznacza, że ewentualnym „sprawcom“ może grozić nawet kara więzienia.

Aferze przyglądają się również amerykańscy politycy, dlatego też prezesi platformy handlowej Robinhood, firmy zarządzającej aktywami Melvin Capital oraz funduszu hedgingowego Citadel, którzy odegrali główną rolę w tych wydarzeniach, będą teraz musieli zeznawać przed komisją parlamentarną w przyszły czwartek.

Has Bitcoin proven to be a reliable store of value

Has Bitcoin proven to be a reliable store of value in 2020? Experts‘ answers

Experts in blockchain and crypto technology answer the question about Bitcoin’s path in 2020

Without a doubt, 2020 was unlike any other year of the 21st century: the COVID-19 pandemic, the relentless money printing of governments around the world, the new normal of „lockdowns“ and „social distancing,“ protests against racial discrimination and police violence, and so on. Some even called it „the worst year ever.“ But, as they say, even the worst things have a silver lining. The most important thing is to learn from everything Bitcoin Up we have faced and to improve our world and our future, as there are some problems we have to solve ourselves.

It is also true that 2020 was a significant year not only for people around the world, but also for Bitcoin (BTC): the third halving, the growing attention from institutional investors and global regulators, the 12th anniversary of its white paper, etc. Some have even described the genesis blockchain as the ‚New Testament‘ of finance, and others suggest using it for the utopian idea of a universal basic income. Bitcoin received global attention due to the Twitter hack in mid-July, bringing the crypto community together in defence of its integrity after the event again combined the terms ‚Bitcoin‘ and ’scam‘ in the same headline. In October, PayPal announced the integration of crypto payments, and in November Bitcoin landed on the Wall Street Journal homepage for its 80% rise.

Will PayPal succeed in bringing cryptos to the general public?

In the early 2020s, it would have been hard to imagine how the world would change and how fast these changes would be. Despite all the negative consequences of the ongoing crisis due to COVID-19, there have been some positive developments, at least within the crypto sector. For example, Bitcoin’s volatility has decreased since its peak in mid-March, and the pandemic has highlighted the main cryptocurrency’s most important asset: its decentralised nature. Some have even said that the pandemic has underlined the benefits of cryptocurrencies for the world. And while Europe moved towards a cashless world, the US remained more conservative and did not want to give up paper money.

Experts explain how the COVID-19 pandemic has affected the crypto sector

The impact of COVID-19 has made one thing clear: the current financial system has serious problems that could be solved by Bitcoin and the technology on which it is based. And the similarities between the two recent financial crises, the 2008 and the 2020 pandemic crises, revealed the systemic problems of centralised finance. While the first crisis gave birth to Bitcoin, the current one has pushed people towards decentralised technology and Bitcoin on a large scale, in the context of the global economic recession. Some even believe that over the next decade Bitcoin will play a key role in the transformation of the global economy, dubbed „The Great Reset,“ and the mass adoption of crypto will be driven by the millennial generation.

It is estimated that since the beginning of the year in May, central banks have printed $15 trillion to support anti-pandemic measures and save global economies, sacrificing the US dollar, as described by some. And these measures have shifted people’s attention to alternative financial instruments, making Bitcoin a hedge against inflation and even an alternative to traditional finance. Some have even suggested that governments should make a monetary transition to Bitcoin to solve public debt problems.

Nie kupię bitcoina, dopóki jego wartość przekracza 20 000 USD – Jim Cramer

Bitcoin przyciągnął w ostatnich miesiącach wielu inwestorów, w tym inwestorów i instytucje o dużej wartości netto. Wśród tych inwestorów jest Jim Cramer, który jest gospodarzem programu Mad Money w CNBC.

Cramer powiedział, że nadal „ bawi się pieniędzmi domu “ po tym, jak sprzedał część swoich kryptowalut przed niedawnym załamaniem cen

Przemawiając w wywiadzie dla TheStreet, Cramer powiedział , że nadal wierzy w Bitcoin pomimo korekty ceny o 10 000 dolarów w ciągu ostatnich trzech dni. Szybko jednak dodał, że jest mało prawdopodobne, aby nabył więcej bitcoinów, chyba że cena ponownie spadnie poniżej 20 000 USD. Skomentował:

„Moim celem było odzyskanie gotówki, więc nie muszę o tym myśleć. Jeśli cena spadnie poniżej 20 000 USD, znowu będę kupującym.

Ale poznałem swój koszt i bawię się pieniędzmi domu.

Nie różni się to niczym od całkowicie nieregularnego zapasu

Popularny gospodarz CNBC potwierdził, że w zeszłym tygodniu „sprzedał wystarczająco dużo Bitcoinów”, aby pokryć początkowe udziały w kryptowalutach. Cramer podobno zdobył swój pierwszy bitcoin w połowie grudnia, kiedy cena oscylowała w granicach 17 000 dolarów, określając go wówczas jako „przyzwoity poziom”.

Cena bitcoina straciła ponad 23% w ciągu kilku dni po osiągnięciu rekordowego poziomu ponad 42 000 USD 8 stycznia. W chwili pisania tego tekstu jej cena waha się między 33 500 a 34 500 USD.

IOTA deepens partnership with climate research community EIT Climate-KIC

The IOTA Foundation wants to deepen its partnership with the climate research community EIT Climate-KIC founded by the European Union.

IOTA wants to further deepen the existing partnership with the climate research community EIT Climate-KIC founded by the European Union , as the IOTA Foundation announced in a blog post on December 30th .

According to IOTA, the partners have signed a letter of intent to increase efforts in 2021 to achieve long-term climate goals based on the “long termism” approach.

Sustainability as a goal

IOTA had already published details about the “long termism” concept in a blog post the day before . From his point of view, current global challenges such as climate change and environmental degradation are “due to short-term optimizations in our social systems and organizations”.

Financial investments would be “judged by their return in a few years” and “resources would be exploited despite negative long-term externalities”, but this need not necessarily be the case. Such long-term solutions are to be developed together with EIT Climate-KIC.

Approaches such as the “Internet of (Every) Thing” as an extension of the Internet of Things could enable processes to be optimized for better sustainability through data monitoring. Decentralized markets, digital assets and “self-sovereign identities” could play an important role in this.

IOTA co-founder and chairman of the IOTA Foundation sees an important contribution in the long-term orientation of IOTA:

“For the IOTA Foundation, working on sustainability is an exciting challenge: We may concentrate on developing things that are of real benefit to people today, but as a foundation geared towards the common good, we have to address the long-term consequences of ours As well as working with our community and other organizations to devise a long-term future that we want to achieve together. “

Cooperation since 2019

The IOTA Foundation had the research community EIT Climate KIC of the EU-funded European Institute for Technology (EIT) is already 2019 connected . KICs are knowledge and innovation communities coordinated by the EIT. The EIT Climate KIC belong in Germany in addition to research institutions such as the Technical University of Berlin and the Technical University of Munich, companies and think tanks to.

TradingView column: First stop

Bitcoin begins to sideline at the top of $19,000. Some altcoins continue rallying. Check out the studies by TradingView analysts.

CSM Trader

The price of Bitcoin in some past sessions even tested the support in the price area of $ 18,620 just above the EMA 100 (H1); after arriving in the price area of $ 19,419 and thus making another annual high.

Now at the time of writing the Bitcoin price follows above the $19,160 price area and with that the evolutions and consolidations should occur above the $18,900 and $19,000 price area to give the continuity of evolutions and attempts of positive evolutions above the resistance in the $19,400 price area and with that the attempt to advance above the $19,500 price area may occur.

The Bitcoin price still needs good consolidations above the $19,200 and $19,300 price area in order to gain strength and advance above $19,500 for new consolidations above this price area, and with that the evolutions and test above the $19,700 price area may arise, and thus the Bitcoin price will be very close to breaking its historical price in the $19,800 price area and still be able to extend above $20,000, and thus making a new historical top. (see dynamic chart).

The ETH yesterday (24) made the expected correction, not up to 560 more until the 20-period moving average, which was rising as the day went by. The price reached 580 on average and formed a bottom from which it has risen again so far. The ETH is expected to test the 620 once more and in case of a break it can happen a strong high, up to 750. Already if the resistance is respected a correction can lead to support at 560. (see dynamic chart).

ETH Cryptomeda on the BTC pair is showing a trend reversal by holding the weekly dragon and the daily showed a strong momentum.

Keep an eye on this crypto superstar, I also like BTC but we should go where we see the biggest profits. (see the dynamic chart).

Since its historic high in January 2018, the XRP currency has depreciated against the dollar and has lost more than 95% of its value. But the time for devaluation is over. We have reached the maximum monthly fractal bottom and are now preparing to rise.

Finally we stop falling and start the movements that will start the Legendary Rally (well, we are in the first movements that will still generate it).
This means that from now on the tops will be higher than the previous ones and no bottom will exceed the maximum bottom marked on the chart. (see the dynamic graph).

MyEtherWallet introduces staking for Ethereum 2.0

MyEtherWallet now takes Ether (ETH) staking into account. This was made possible by a partnership with Staked.

Ethereum 2.0 and staking on MyEtherWallet

The partnership between MyEtherWallet and Staked has been designed to make it easier for users to take advantage of ETH staking . They can now deposit the 32 ETH or more required on the Beacon Chain, and Staked will manage the validation node. According to MyEtherWallet CEO Kosala Hemachandra, this lowers technical barriers that could have prevented some users from staking.

As a reminder, the validators who manage the new nodes of the Ethereum 2.0 network will secure the transactions and replace the miners. However, the Bitcoin Superstar rewards generated in this way cannot be withdrawn for a certain period of time. They will be blocked until phase 2 of Ethereum 2.0, in at least two years.

ETH staking meets with great success

MyEtherWallet is the first crypto wallet to unlock staking with Ethereum 2.0 directly from the app. This opens up staking to mobile users, which could appeal to a wider range of investors, according to Kosala Hamachandra:

“Mobile access to everything the Ethereum blockchain has to offer – including swaps, DeFi, BTC sendings to Ethereum, and staking – can greatly facilitate the entry of users and increase participation in the network. “

ETH’s staking is currently meeting the success hoped for by developers. We learned a few days ago that 1 million ETH was now staked on Ethereum 2.0 . “Delegated staking” services , which take care of the technical aspects on behalf of ETH holders, are also booming.

Kraken, which launched ETH staking on December 4, has already seen 100,000 ETH deposited into the deposit agreement through its services. In total, this is 8% of all ETH stakes. The other large centralized exchange platforms should therefore follow the trend in the coming months.

Legalize Bitcoin! – Congressman Ron Paul on BTC in the US

Legalize Bitcoin! – The former congressman Ron Paul expressed himself according to this motto in an episode of the Stephan Livera Podcast, which appeared last Sunday. Paul describes his view of the current relationship between the US government and the cryptocurrency Bitcoin.

Especially in times when the G7 countries are calling for acute regulation of crypto currencies, this topic seems more important and topical than ever.

Ron Paul on Bitcoin in the US

Ron Paul belongs to the scrap heap of the American political establishment.

Paul is a former Congressman and was a candidate for the US presidential election. The Texan is considered a libertarian free spirit.

In a recent interview, Paul spoke about Crypto Investor and cryptocurrencies in general. In short, Paul urges people to be more vigilant and responsible.

Let us now take a look at the individual statements made by the former presidential candidate.

Could the US government seize Bitcoin just like gold?

In essence, Paul expressed his concerns about strong regulation by the US government.

Paul said he saw the authorities‘ seizure of cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin as a real threat. Such a project has already happened three times in the past in the USA.

The last time government authorities seized gold from the population was during the Great Depression in 1933 .

Specifically, Paul said:

The more successful cryptocurrencies and especially Bitcoin are, the more you have to be aware that the US government will be more aggressive. Cryptocurrencies are not a product of governments and so they keep a very close eye on them.

Paul is considered an advocate for cryptocurrencies

In the overall context we have to note that Paul has come out several times as a critic of the American Federal Reserve Bank.

In this respect, the former congressman, who resigned from Congress in 2013, is considered an advocate for Bitcoin and Co. He received his first Bitcoin from Litecoin founder Bobby Lee.

As early as 2013 Paul started with a „Legalize Bitcoin“ approach, which aimed to allow currencies to compete.

When I was in Congress, one of my goals was to fully legalize Bitcoin. I had a draft that would have allowed currencies to compete. The problem is that it would have created competition for the US dollar and there are some people who absolutely dislike that.

Regulation still a threat to Bitcoin?

Paul stressed several times that he still regards government regulation as a major threat to Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies in general.

In memory of the act described above for the confiscation of US citizens‘ gold holdings in 1933, Paul warned against too much serenity in the crypto community.

Even if the tenor is repeated here that Bitcoin is a decentralized currency that comes from „outside“ and cannot be confiscated, one should not underestimate the power of the US government.

If the government can come and take your gold holdings away from you, I don’t think they’d be neutral on cryptocurrencies. At some point the world will come without cash and governments will want to use their money and know what is going on.

What is certain is that an indirect ban on stock exchanges and trading platforms as well as the restriction of fiat access would already represent a tough cut for Bitcoin and Co.

A euforia de Altseason cresce à medida que a correlação Ether-Bitcoin cai para o mínimo de 3 anos

Como o mercado de criptografia parece estar definido para terminar 2020 em alta, a expectativa parece estar crescendo para uma possível outra época, que poderia ver os tokens altcoin retornarem aos marcos de preço anteriores. O desempenho de preços positivo deste ano também viu a capitalização de mercado total crescer mais de três vezes seu valor no início de 2020.

Altseason nos cartões como quedas de correlação Ether-Bitcoin

De acordo com dadosdo provedor de análise de criptografia Skew, a correlação entre Ether (ETH) e Bitcoin (ETH) está em seu ponto mais baixo em quase três anos. Até o momento, a Correlação realizada ETH-BTC de 30 dias está abaixo de 50% pela primeira vez desde janeiro de 2018.

Normalmente, uma alta correlação ETH-BTC aponta para uma correção de mercado iminente, que muitas vezes serve para truncar qualquer impulso de alta no mercado altcoin. De fato, os períodos de alta correlação ETH-BTC geralmente coincidem com retratações de preços descendentes para altcoins.

A tendência decrescente da correlação ETH-BTC parece ter sido instigada pelo boom do financiamento descentralizado (DeFi) do terceiro trimestre de 2020. Após o surgimento da mineração de liquidez em meados de 2020, o mercado DeFi conquistou o setor, gerando um nível significativo de interesse.

Além de significar uma baixa probabilidade de uma correção de mercado, a correlação ETH-BTC em declínio também oferece outra indicação de uma nova estação iminente. Altcoins normalmente rastreiam avanços de preço de Bitcoin com muitos tokens que oferecem ações de preços „moonshot“ massivas, mesmo depois que o avanço do BTC esfriou.

Apesar dos recentes ganhos de preço do Bitcoin, no nível macro, o índice ETH / BTC é atualmente positivo líquido para a segunda maior criptografia por capitalização de mercado. Na verdade, os dados deTradingview mostra que o índice ETH / BTC está em seu nível mais alto desde maio de 2019.

Como anteriormente relatadopor BTCManager em agosto, onarrativa da épocatem se fortalecido desde o final do segundo trimestre de 2020. Na época, a capitalização de mercado total da altcoin havia quebrado uma resistência de vários anos, subindo acima de US $ 140 bilhões pela primeira vez em mais de dois anos. Até o momento, o tamanho total do mercado de altcoin é de US $ 220 bilhões.

Altcoins já está provocando grandes aumentos de preços

Nos últimos dias, várias altcoins de capitalização mais alta tiveram ganhos significativos de preço em meio a sentimentos de alta crescentes no espaço criptográfico. O XRP subiu mais de 140% no último período de negociação de 7 dias após uma forte alta que viu seu preço atingir $ 0,9; seu nível de preço mais alto desde maio de 2018.

Fora das „10 moedas mais populares“, Stellar (XLM) também experimentou um grande ganho no preço e está atualmente com alta de 170% na última semana de negociação. Até o momento, o XLM é um dos maiores ganhadores entre os principais tokens altcoin da atualidade, com um aumento no preço de 24 horas de 30%.
