El director de NYDIG dice que las principales empresas anunciarán los ‚hitos‘ de Bitcoin la próxima semana

„Sé que a partir de más o menos la semana que viene, verás un ritmo absoluto de hitos que cambiarán el juego de algunas de estas empresas“. – Cofundador de Stone Ridge

Estamos al borde de la adopción masiva de Bitcoin, dice el CEO de la firma de inversión de Bitcoin NYDIG Robby Gutmann

Gutmann, también cofundador del administrador de activos de $ 10 mil millones Stone Ridge, dijo en el podcast „On the Brink“ el 15 de marzo que podemos esperar ver anuncios de algunos de los socios estratégicos de la empresa que cambiarán drásticamente el panorama financiero tradicional.

„Sé que a partir de más o menos la semana que viene, verás un ritmo absoluto de hitos que cambiarán el juego de algunas de estas empresas“.

El 8 de marzo, NYDIG completó una ronda de capital de crecimiento de $ 200 millones liderada por varias firmas financieras importantes, incluidas Morgan Stanley, New York Life, MassMutual, Soros Fund Management y FS Investments. Otros socios de NYDIG incluyen las firmas fintech Kasasa, Nymbys y Moven.

Gutmann no dijo qué socios harán anuncios, pero insinuó que la noticia podría implicar brindar un mayor acceso a Bitcoin para el público en general, así como otros productos y servicios

Curiosamente, uno de los productos que NYDIG ofrece a las empresas asociadas se llama ‚Corporate Treasury‘, que implica un conjunto de soluciones de tesorería diseñadas específicamente para permitir que las corporaciones posean Bitcoin.

„[Los anuncios] marcarán progresivamente nuevos puntos en la adopción de Bitcoin, la disponibilidad de Bitcoin, los productos y servicios de Bitcoin dentro del panorama financiero tradicional existente“.

El mes pasado, NYDIG presentó la documentación ante la Comisión de Bolsa y Valores de los Estados Unidos para lanzar un nuevo fondo cotizado en bolsa de Bitcoin ( BTC ).

Actualmente, la firma controla más de $ 3 mil millones en activos digitales.

Russell Okung modtager halvdelen af hans $ 13 millioner kontrakt i Bitcoin

  • Super Bowl-vinder og to gange NFL Pro Russell Okung modtager halvdelen af sin kontraktløn i Bitcoin.
  • Ved hjælp af Lightning Network konverterer Okungs team hans løn direkte til BTC.
  • Okung modtager $ 7,5 millioner i BTC, hvilket sandsynligvis gør ham til den første pro-atlet, der gør det.

Og nu modtager han halvdelen af sin nye kontrakt i BTC

Pro-Bowl-mester Russell Okung har været en stærk tilhænger af Bitcoin i årevis, og nu modtager han halvdelen af sin nye kontrakt i BTC.

Okung annoncerede et nyt partnerskab med Strike, et netværk, der bruger Bitcoin Lightning Network. Netværket vil gøre det muligt for ham at skjule 7,5 millioner dollars af sin fodboldkontrakt på 13 millioner dollars til BTC.

Okung har presset på for at hans nuværende og tidligere hold skal betale ham i Bitcoin i løbet af de sidste par år. Og med den seneste rally til nogensinde højder ser det ud til, at han endelig fik sit ønske.

Okungs team, Carolina Panthers, kan sende en del af hans løn direkte over Lightning Network i stedet for via sin traditionelle konto, hvilket giver mulighed for næsten øjeblikkelig konvertering til bitcoin.

Dette ser ud til at markere en vigtig milepæl for bitcoin og aktivklassen for kryptokurrency, da dette er første gang en professionel spiller får betalt direkte for deres arbejde.

Okung har været temmelig højlydt om denne idé. Beslutningen er godt repræsenteret af et af hans tidligere citater, „penge er mere end valuta, det er magt.“

Hvad er strejke?

Strike er en bank-kompatibel API til Bitcoin Lightning Network. The Lightning Network har været under udvikling i flere år. Det giver mulighed for hurtigere og billigere bitcoin-transaktioner gennem brug af en ‚anden lag‘-blockchain-protokol.

Ved at bruge Lightning Network til at gennemføre transaktioner kan mindre overførsler (mikrotransaktioner) håndteres mere effektivt.

Strikes overholdelse og regulatoriske standarder er en vigtig del af denne aftale, da de gør det muligt for Okung og Carolina Panthers at lovligt gennemføre betalingen i henhold til ligastandarder.

Jack Mallers, grundlægger og administrerende direktør for Strike, er yderst bullish på nyhederne og forklarer en cryptocurrency twitter-influencer:

”Fik flere atleter på ventelisten, som vi er ombord nu. NFL, NBA, MLB. Selv nogle Billboard-kunstnere. Stacking af sats bliver mainstream, vi er ved at sprænge denne sh * t op, lige ved at komme i gang ”.

Mallers ‚ord antyder, at dette kun er begyndelsen. Der vil sandsynligvis være lignende meddelelser for professionelle atleter og berømtheder i de kommende måneder.

Hvis yderligere mainstream-ikoner begynder at acceptere Bitcoin for deres arbejdskraft, vil det sandsynligvis se en betydelig del af deres følgende rush til kryptokurrencyaktiklassen.

Incluso Bittrex está deteniendo el comercio de XRP

Incluso Bittrex está deteniendo el comercio de XRP

Bittrex se convirtió en la última bolsa en cortar los lazos con XRP después de que la SEC presentara cargos por valores contra Ripple Labs.

Bittrex anunció hoy que eliminará el XRP, la cuarta moneda más grande, una semana después de que la Bitcoin Pro Comisión de Valores y Bolsa de EE.UU. acusara a Ripple Labs de recaudar 1.300 millones de dólares por la venta de la moneda en ventas de valores no registradas.

#Clientes de Bittrex:

Los mercados de $XRP serán eliminados el viernes 15 de enero a las 4:00PM PST.

Detalles: https://t.co/1mefjC1ziw

– Bittrex (@BittrexExchange) 29 de diciembre de 2020

La capitalización del mercado de XRP ha caído un 66% desde que la SEC anunció los cargos el 22 de diciembre. En el momento de escribir esto XRP estaba cotizando a 0,20 dólares, una caída del 15,8% en las últimas 24 horas.
La capitalización de mercado de XRP cayó un 63% después de la demanda de la SEC. Así es como ocurrió

La capitalización del mercado de XRP ha caído en 16.000 millones de dólares, o el 63%, desde que se conoció la noticia de la demanda de la Comisión de Valores y Bolsa de EE.UU. contra Ripple Labs el 21 de diciembre. La demanda de la SEC alega…

Bittrex es la undécima bolsa o fondo que se retira de la lista o suspende el comercio XRP; Coinbase, OKCoin, Beaxy, Galaxy Digital, B2C2, Bitstamp, Jump Trading, Bitwise, CrossTower y OSL hicieron anuncios similares.

XRP sigue abierto para el comercio en Binance y Kraken.

„Bittrex eliminará los mercados de XRP el viernes 15 de enero de 2021 a las 4 PM (PST)“, dijo en un comunicado publicado hoy. „Hasta nuevo aviso, los clientes continuarán teniendo acceso a su cartera XRP en Bittrex después de que los mercados sean eliminados. Cualquier otra actualización se proporcionará a través de Twitter y/o Atención al Cliente“.

La demanda de la SEC alega que Ripple recaudó $1.3 mil millones en XRP a través de ventas de valores no registrados desde 2013-y continúa haciéndolo. Ripple Labs continúa negando las acusaciones y en una nueva declaración dijo: „La SEC ha introducido más incertidumbre en el mercado, perjudicando activamente a la comunidad que se supone deben proteger“. No es sorprendente que algunos participantes del mercado estén reaccionando conservadoramente como resultado“.

Fundada en 2014 en Seattle, Washington por los ingenieros de seguridad cibernética Bill Shihara, Richie Lai, y Rami Kawach, Bittrex ofrece pares de comercio XRP con BTC, ETH, USDT, y USD. La bolsa OG era conocida por llevar casi todas las monedas en su plataforma. La compañía se enfrentó al Estado de Nueva York en abril de 2019 cuando perdió su oferta por la llamada licencia de bits para vender „moneda virtual“.

Bitcoin options expire: volatility expected over Christmas

Many Bitcoin futures expire on Friday.

Bitcoin futures worth around $ 2.3 billion will expire on Christmas Day. This means that the cryptocurrency market can prepare for a volatile week.

In a tweet on Monday , crypto data provider Skew reported that 102,200 Bitcoin ( BTC ) options will expire on Friday.

Options contracts allow holders to buy or sell Bitcoin Machine at a specific rate. Friday’s phasing out date has notable clusters around $ 15,000 and $ 20,000, according to Skew.

Expiry of BTC options according to Skew

The expiration date of bitcoin options contracts is widely regarded as a volatile event for the largest cryptocurrency. Because as the expiration date approaches, holders adjust their contracts . Traders who are up can also choose to cash out and sell the cryptocurrency.

BTC options expiry on Friday, according to Skew

Such events usually lead to large fluctuations in the Bitcoin price. Typically, the impact of a contract on the BTC rate becomes more noticeable about a day or two before it expires.

Crypto derivatives trading has skyrocketed this year as more traders and institutional investors want to deal with Bitcoin. Since last week, the crypto derivatives platform Deribit has been offering Bitcoin futures with a strike price of 100,000 US dollars , which expire on September 24, 2021. Bitcoin enthusiasts who believe that the cryptocurrency will reach a six-digit rate can now make this bet on the futures market.

Bitcoin is currently in a bull market fueled in part by institutional investors and large over-the-counter deals. Even with the expected futures volatility, it is entirely possible that Bitcoin will continue to receive good support. For example, due to institutional demand and the rise in so-called illiquid wallets, i.e. addresses that have sent less than 25 percent of the BTC they have ever received. Chainanalysis believes that 77 percent of the 14.8 million BTC mined that are not yet lost are in illiquid wallets.

Litecoin (LTC) finally breaks its long-term resistance

LTC broke through the long term resistance zone of $ 85.

Long term indicators are bullish for LTC / USD like LTC / BTC.

LTC / BTC pair broke a descending resistance line.

Litecoin (LTC) price finally broke through resistance at $ 85. He had been struggling to pass this area for over a year.

Both LTC / USD and LTC / BTC are expected to continue to rise towards the targets shown below.

Passage of long-term resistance

The weekly chart shows that Bitcoin Optimzer has finally broken through the resistance at $ 85, which it has struggled to do since July 2019. While it has yet to close above this area, it is virtually certain that it will succeed, ruling out a possible wave of massive sales.

Volume increased as price advanced, and indicators are all bullish, increasing the validity of the resistance crossing. The next resistance is found at $ 145.

The daily chart shows that the rise in LTC accelerated when price broke a descending resistance line.

Technical indicators are bullish and showing no weakness, supporting a possible target around the $ 145 area.

That said, the two hour chart is showing the first signs of weakness

LCT is following a very steep ascending support line, which is likely to be unsuccessful in the long run. Additionally, both the RSI and MACD have formed bearish divergences, which is a sign of a weakening trend.

Thus, a decline towards the support at $ 91- $ 95 (fibonacci retracements 0.5-0.618) could take place before LTC resumes its upward movement.

The wave count suggests that LTC started a bullish momentum in March, currently trading in a wave 3 cycle (in white below). He’s also in the middle of a 1-2 / 1-2 wave formation , found in wave 3 (in orange).

A target for the wave 3 top (in orange) is found at $ 118, while the target for the wave 3 cycle top (in white) is near $ 147. This last objective also corresponds to the resistance zone described in the first section.

On the contrary, a drop below the top of Wave 1 (red line) to $ 68.37 would negate that wave count.

Carteiras de privacidade de bitcoin cada vez mais populares entre os criminosos: elíptica

Pelo menos 13% dos lucros do crime com Bitcoin agora são lavados por meio de carteiras de privacidade como o Wasabi, de acordo com um novo relatório.

Pelo menos 13% dos lucros do crime com Bitcoin agora são lavados por meio de carteiras de privacidade, de acordo com a Elliptic.

Isso era apenas 2% em 2019, disse a empresa

As carteiras de privacidade buscam maior anonimato no blockchain, facilitando os processos de “mistura” de moedas que obscurecem as origens das transações.

Pelo menos 13% das receitas de crimes de Bitcoin Revolution agora são lavadas através de carteiras de privacidade, contra apenas 2% no ano passado, de acordo com um novo relatório da empresa de análise de blockchain Elliptic. A empresa diz que esse número representa “mais de US $ 160 milhões em bitcoins de mercados darknet, roubos e golpes”.

Carteiras de privacidade são serviços que facilitam a “mistura” de moedas, um processo que troca suas moedas por outras moedas, anonimamente, e obscurece as entradas e saídas individuais das transações.

O Bitcoin foi desenvolvido com total transparência em mente e um livro-razão público disponível para qualquer pessoa no mundo; esses serviços contornam essa ideia

Os desenvolvedores defendem que as carteiras de privacidade fornecem uma medida de privacidade financeira, o que eles fazem – o que também os torna uma boa opção para criminosos que buscam lavar fundos roubados por meio de um sistema transparente, de acordo com a Elliptic .

Por e-mail, o cofundador da Elliptic, Tom Robinson, disse à Decrypt que, embora os desenvolvedores de carteira de privacidade de código aberto não sejam responsáveis por esse aumento na atividade criminosa, as coisas ficam mais complicadas no caso de uma empresa como a Wasabi Wallet, que cobra taxas por cada transação anônima e, portanto, pode potencialmente ganhar dinheiro com atividades criminosas.

“A área cinzenta é onde há alguém facilitando transações específicas que podem estar vinculadas a atividades ilícitas”, disse ele. “A forma como a Wasabi Wallet funciona é que há uma empresa envolvida em facilitar transações ativamente e cobrar uma taxa por isso – acho que uma questão em aberto é de responsabilidade dessa empresa e se ela está sujeita à regulamentação.“

Bitcoin has reached a decisive level – what analysts are now paying attention to

It’s been a wild last few weeks for Bitcoin and the cryptocurrency market, with the benchmark cryptocurrency seeing massive gains while the rest of the market is also showing continued signs of strength.

Altcoins are moving into the limelight as the rally stalled at BTC: selling pressures at $ 19,000 slowed the rise as Ethereum and smaller altcoins soared.
The near future BTC trends will depend entirely on Bitcoin’s continued reaction to $ 19,000.
A trader finds that Bitcoin is now at a hub whose short-term trend may be a linchpin for the medium-term outlook.

Bitcoin has shown some signs of immense strength in the past few days and weeks, with selling pressures being quite intense at around $ 19,000.

Medium term market trends will depend entirely on this level as a rejection here could be incredibly fatal.

Still, a break above that level could be all it takes to absorb immense momentum that is causing BTC to skyrocket in the days and weeks to come.

The coming days should provide some insight into the crypto trend, and an analyst also notes that BTC is now being traded at a hub.
Bitcoin is fighting rejection after strong momentum

Bitcoin is currently being traded at a price of $ 18,375. This is below the price it has been trading at for the past few days.

The selling pressure just above the current price has proven to be quite intense, but it has not yet sparked a violent rejection. This has led analysts to remain broadly bullish on Bitcoin as they anticipate an imminent breakout above this crucial resistance level.
Analyst: BTC at critical node

An analyst explains that Bitcoin has now reached a critical point and that short-term developments could set the tone for where Bitcoin (buy Bitcoin? Click here for instructions) will develop in the coming days and weeks.

Specifically, he watches the reaction at $ 19,000 and the support at $ 18,500.

„IMO, we are at this BTC hub where … buyers are aggressively emerging from the 18.5k support zone like they did after the early slump in Asia last week, and we are trying again at 19k. OR -18.5 thousand buyers are [destroyed], we break down and break down again, ‚buy the dip‘ market is no more. „

That means: The coming days will be decisive for where the entire market will develop in the coming days and weeks.

Adresy Milionerów Bitcoinów osiągają najwyższy poziom od stycznia 2018 r.

Teraz ponad 20.000 adresów ma BTC o wartości miliona dolarów.

Ponieważ cena Bitcoin’a utrzymuje się na wysokim poziomie 13.000 dolarów, liczba adresów Bitcoin’a będących milionerami również osiąga poziom niespotykany od ostatniego biegu byków.

Te adresy, które mają ponad 1 milion dolarów wartości BTC przekroczyły 20.000, najwyższy poziom od stycznia 2018 roku, jak na Glassnode.

Liczby te wzrastają od marca, kiedy to sprzedaż spowodowała przesunięcie tych adresów z około 17,5 tys. do prawie 7,5 tys.

W sierpniu liczby te uległy znacznemu wzrostowi, kiedy to dodano około 5 000 nowych adresów. Teraz osiągnęła ona poziom, do którego zbliżyliśmy się w połowie ubiegłego roku.

Liczba adresów z ponad milionem dolarów Crypto Profit osiągnęła najwyższy poziom w grudniu 2017 roku, kiedy cena BTC osiągnęła 20 000 dolarów.

Według Bitinfocharts, podczas gdy 20.554 adresy są bogatsze niż 1 milion dolarów, tylko 2.754 adresy mają wartość BTC 10 milionów dolarów.

Tymczasem ponad 25 milionów adresów ma wartość 1$ BTC, blisko 9,7 miliona adresów ma ponad 100$ BTC, a 3,64 miliona ma wartość 1000$ Bitcoinów.

Liczba adresów bogatszych niż 10 tys. dolarów BTC przechodzi do 990 tys., a 182 414 adresów ma 100 tys. dolarów BTC.

To było jak Bitcoin pracuje w celu umocnienia swojej roli jako cyfrowego złota, magazynu wartości. Niedawno zespół analityków z JP Morgan stwierdził, że wiodąca waluta cyfrowa konkuruje ze złotem, sugerując „podwojenie lub potrojenie“ jej ceny, jeśli ten trend się utrzyma.

„Starsze kohorty preferują złoto, podczas gdy młodsze wolą Bitcoin jako „alternatywną“ walutę“, czytamy w nocie badawczej.

Analitycy dodali również, że długoterminowe perspektywy Bitcoina mogą ulec dalszej poprawie ze względu na jego użyteczność jako mechanizmu płatności.

W związku z tym, zaledwie wczoraj, posiadacz portfela BTC przeniósł ponad 88.857 BTC, o wartości około 1,15 mld dolarów za opłatą zaledwie 0,00027847 BTC, o wartości mniejszej niż 4 dolarów.

Bitcoin (BTC) white paper is 12 years old today

Bitcoin broke the $14,000 limit today, but 31 October is also the twelfth anniversary of the bitcoin white paper. The anonymous creator(s) of bitcoin, Satoshi Nakamoto, published the revolutionary vision for a new kind of money. The title of the white paper: Bitcoin: A Peer-to-Peer Electronic Cash System.

Exactly 11 years ago today, Satoshi Nakamoto published his vision of revolutionary monetary money in the well-known white paper. In this document, Satoshi brought together all kinds of techniques. Blockchain, Proof-of-Work and the Distributed Ledger Technology: these are pieces of technology that make Bitcoin what it is.

A nice fact: the word blockchain does not appear in the whitepaper.

Original idea

Satoshi did not suddenly come up with the idea of decentralised money. Cypherpunks had been working for decades to find ways to preserve your privacy online and digitally.

Privacy is necessary for an open society in the electronic age. Privacy is not confidentiality. A private matter is something you don’t want the whole world to know, but a secret matter is something you don’t want anyone to know. Privacy is the power to reveal oneself selectively to the world.

– ERIC HUGHES

The above principles can also be applied to the Bitcoin network. You can do a bitcoin transaction without anyone’s permission, that’s freedom. However, it can be said that there is still work to be done on the privacy aspects of bitcoin. It is difficult to use the network anonymously.

12 years Bitcoin

Bitcoin is a world-renowned asset twelve years later. Minning bitcoin is a Wealth Matrix multi-billion dollar industry, individuals can buy BTC online in thousands of places, listed companies hold on to bitcoin as a saver and the price is also showing great things at the moment.

Bitcoin has grown from a niche project into a global currency.

The prices of bitcoin on 31 October in recent years:

$204 in 2013
$338 in 2014
$314 in 2015
$700 in 2016
$6,468 in 2017
$6,317 in 2018
$9,199 in 2019
$13,732 in 2020

Comments

So 31 October is a real bitcoin holiday. We have listed a few nice reactions to bitcoin’s birthday for you:

Jameson Lopp shares a remarkable statistic: at least 740 websites host the whitepaper and the whitepaper has been quoted more than 12,000 in scientific publications.

Arthur van Pelt calls the work of Satoshi the most important white paper of this century. In only 9 pages the foundation is laid for a monetary revolution.

Old structures of the US tax office make it difficult to collect crypto taxes

The Internal Revenue Service has so far been inefficient in collecting crypto taxes.

The taxation of income through cryptocurrencies is still a gray area, which even at the American tax office IRS means, as Wendy Walker of the tax consultancy Sovos says

„The IRS usually uses 1099 reporting for income tax returns,“ Walker stated in an interview with Cointelegraph. „The tax return according to the format 1099, W2 is the main procedure that you use to collect taxes,“ the expert continues. But if people don’t report their Bitcoin Cycle review income in this context, then the IRS has a problem.

In 2019, the tax authorities tried to get this problem under control by sending warning letters to 10,000 crypto investors , in which they advised the persons concerned that they still had tax debts or even had to pay fines. Other investors, in turn, were only asked to add their crypto earnings.

Recently, the IRS added a question to their Form 1040 aimed at providing information about taxpayers‘ crypto activities

„That’s why the IRS is now getting mountains of information to work through,“ as Walker describes the consequences of the agency’s desperate approach. To evaluate this information Berg, the US tax office then an alert in May 2020 published by which it seeks individuals who have knowledge of digital assets and can process large amounts of data, such supplements Walker.

“What I’m saying is that she’s making it difficult for herself. The question on Form 1040, the invitation to tender to process the mountains of information received, threatening letters to taxpayers, it seems as if she is simply trying out what works. „

The old structures of the authority can therefore apparently not keep up with the speed of technical innovation and thus make the situation more difficult for everyone involved.
