Russell Okung, który gra dla Carolina Panthers w American National Football League (NFL), ogłosił, że w końcu otrzymał 50% swoich 13 milionów dolarów rocznych opłat w Bitcoinie. Okung został pierwszym graczem w NFL, który otrzymał wypłatę w Bitcoin Revolution.

Zgodnie z oficjalnym ogłoszeniem, Okung zamienił 6,5 miliona dolarów ze swojej pensji NFL na Bitcoin za pośrednictwem BTC Payment Startup Zap. Okung był wielkim zwolennikiem cyfrowej waluty, kiedy w maju 2019 roku napisał na Twitterze, że chce otrzymywać płatności największą na świecie kryptowalutą.

Gracz NFL odpowiedział wczoraj na swój własny tweet i ogłosił, że w końcu otrzymał płatność w Bitcoinie. Okung skrytykował dolara amerykańskiego i wyraził obawy o rosnącą inflację.

„Kiedy wszyscy otrzymujemy zapłatę w Bitcoin, nikt nie może nam powiedzieć, co zrobić z wartością, którą tworzymy. Jeśli uważasz, że wybory są sfałszowane, poczekaj, aż dowiesz się o dolarach amerykańskich. Możesz zarabiać „x” rocznie i obserwować, jak powoli spada wraz z inflacją, lub możesz chronić swoje ciężko zarobione pieniądze za pomocą Bitcoin ”- wspomniał Okung na Twitterze.

Bitcoin w sporcie

NFL wyjaśnił, że liga nie wypłaciła Okungowi bezpośrednio w Bitcoin, a on zamienił swoją roczną pensję na BTC poprzez startup. Pomimo powodu, dla którego American League nie realizuje płatności bezpośrednio przez Bitcoin, największa na świecie kryptowaluta zyskała ogromną popularność wśród sportowców na całym świecie. Jack Mallers, założyciel Zap, powiedział Coindeskowi w wywiadzie, że sportowcy z National Basketball Association (NBA) i Major League Baseball (MLB) są w trakcie rozmów o przystąpieniu do programu.

Cena Bitcoina wzrosła o ponad 8% w ciągu ostatnich 24 godzin, osiągając 28,500 USD. Największa kryptowaluta na świecie zyskała znaczną wartość w grudniu i skoczyła z 19 000 $ do 28 000 $ w mniej niż 4 tygodnie. Całkowita kapitalizacja rynkowa kryptowalut przekracza obecnie 750 miliardów dolarów, ponieważ dominacja BTC przekroczyła 70%, co jest najwyższym poziomem od tygodni.

Bitcoin nella più lunga corsa mensile vincente dal 2019 dopo aver raggiunto i 28.000 dollari

Secondo gli esperti, l’aumento della valuta indica una crescente accettazione del cripto come una classe di attività a sé stante

E’ stato un anno difficile per tutti i conti. Ma per Bitcoin, il 2020 è stato un anno meraviglioso.

Bitcoin raggiunge il record di 19.808 dollari dopo il forte calo della scorsa settimana

Bitcoin è in pista per la sua più lunga striscia vincente mensile da oltre un anno dopo aver toccato un record di oltre 28.000 dollari nel fine settimana.

La più grande moneta criptata ha raggiunto il massimo storico di 28.365 dollari la domenica prima di parare parte dell’anticipo, secondo un composito di prezzi compilato da Bloomberg. La corsa di rendimenti fuori misura nel corso di ottobre, novembre e dicembre è stata finora la più lunga da metà del 2019.

“La mia sensazione è che siamo molto vicini al top – potremmo raggiungere i 30.000 dollari”, ha detto Vijay Ayyar, responsabile dello sviluppo del business con la crypto exchange Luno a Singapore. “Dovremmo decisamente vedere un ritiro, ma la portata è probabilmente minore. Potremmo vedere solo un calo del 10-15 per cento”.

È stato un anno difficile per tutti i conti. Ma per Bitcoin il 2020 è stato un anno meraviglioso.

La crittovaluta è quasi quadruplicata, superando per la prima volta i 20.000 dollari, dentellando record dopo record. Gli irriducibili l’hanno acclamata come una copertura per l’inflazione in un’epoca di grandezze senza precedenti della banca centrale. I veterani di Wall Street, da Paul Tudor Jones a Stanley Druckenmiller, l’hanno benedetta come un’attività alternativa, contribuendo al rally. E aziende come MicroStrategy e Square hanno spostato le riserve di liquidità in crypto alla ricerca di rendimenti migliori rispetto a tassi di interesse prossimi allo zero.

Anche se nessuna di queste ragioni per l’acquisto di Bitcoin è dovuta alle sue origini come alternativa alle monete fiat, esse indicano una crescente accettazione del crypto come una classe di attività a sé stante. E questo ha fatto sì che la comunità di fanatici si sia presa l’ennesimo giro di vittoria nella loro ricerca di legittimità. “Quello che sta succedendo ora – e sta succedendo più velocemente di quanto si possa immaginare – è che la Bitcoin si sta spostando da un asset esoterico marginale verso il mainstream”, ha detto Matt Hougan, chief investment officer di Bitwise Asset Management.

“Se la cosa va di moda, ci sono così tanti soldi a margine che dovranno arrivare e stabilire una posizione che mi lascia molto rialzista per il 2021”.

Ma con Bitcoin che cattura maggiore attenzione, potrebbe anche ottenere un ulteriore controllo da parte delle autorità di regolamentazione, dice Guy Hirsch, amministratore delegato per gli Stati Uniti presso la piattaforma di trading online eToro. “Nonostante questo aumento meteorico, ci sono alcune nubi di tempesta all’orizzonte”, ha detto, comprese le ricadute di diverse azioni dell’ultimo minuto da parte dell’amministrazione Trump uscente, tra le altre.

Predire dove andrà è un esercizio arduo. Molti hanno lasciato la moneta per morti dopo il suo rally del 2017 che ha portato a un incidente l’anno successivo, un periodo di tempo a volte indicato come “inverno cripto”.

Ma è aumentato di oltre il 300 per cento nel 2020 e molti investitori dicono che potrebbe continuare a guadagnare l’anno prossimo. Cos’altro c’è sul radar? Per Meltem Demirors, chief strategy officer presso il digital-asset manager CoinShares, ci sono alcune preoccupazioni su ciò che l’amministrazione di Joe Biden potrebbe significare per lo spazio cripto.

In futuro, dicono molti strateghi e investitori, l’industria potrebbe vedere un maggiore controllo e una regolamentazione più severa con Biden alla Casa Bianca.

Elon Musk a besoin de l’aide de Michael Saylor de MicroStrategy

Elon Musk est de nouveau à l’œuvre lorsqu’il s’agit de cryptographie. Cette fois, son attitude semble avoir évolué vers un territoire plus positif, se demandant s’il est possible de transformer une grande partie de l’argent détenu par Tesla en bitcoin.

Elon Musk a besoin d’un petit conseil en matière de crypto
Musk semble tenté par la récente tendance des acteurs institutionnels qui ont mis le doigt sur le bitcoin et sont entrés volontairement dans l’espace de la cryptographie. Parmi ces entreprises, on peut citer MicroStrategy, Stone Ridge, Square et bien d’autres. En fait, Musk s’adresse même à Michael Saylor – le PDG de MicroStrategy – pour obtenir de l’aide et des conseils.

Michael Saylor a acquis cette année la réputation d’être le plus grand fan institutionnel de bitcoin, sachant que sa société a investi plus d’un milliard de dollars dans la plus grande et la plus populaire des monnaies numériques du monde en termes de capitalisation boursière. Depuis le début de l’année, cet actif est passé de beaucoup plus qu’un actif spéculatif, et la pandémie de coronavirus a amené de nombreuses entreprises à repenser leur attitude vis-à-vis de la cryptographie. Elles la considèrent désormais comme une réserve potentielle de richesse, un outil de couverture qui permet de garder son argent à l’abri en période de conflit économique.

L’entreprise a initialement acheté bitcoin à 12 000 dollars en août dernier. Elle a ensuite procédé à un autre achat monstrueux en septembre, puis à un troisième achat important quelques mois plus tard. La société a ensuite annoncé qu’elle cherchait à lever environ 400 millions de dollars supplémentaires afin de pouvoir éventuellement s’engager dans un quatrième achat de bitcoin avant la fin de 2020.

Donc, si M. Musk souhaite sérieusement transformer les avoirs de sa société en BTC, il s’adresse probablement à la bonne personne. Saylor s’est rendu sur Twitter pour dire au PDG de Tesla et de SpaceX qu’il était sur la bonne voie, en commentant :

Faites une faveur de 100 milliards de dollars à vos actionnaires. D’autres entreprises du S&P 500 suivraient votre exemple et, avec le temps, cela deviendrait une faveur de 1 000 milliards de dollars.

Saylor est clairement convaincu que le bitcoin est l’argent de l’avenir. Musk a ensuite répondu aux propos de Saylor en demandant si “des transactions aussi importantes étaient même possibles”. Saylor a alors répondu par l’affirmative, affirmant que pratiquement tout était possible avec les bitcoins.

Changer de ton tout d’un coup ?

Le roi de la cryptographie a fait un bond de plus de 200 % depuis le début de l’année, en commençant en janvier à environ 7 000 dollars l’unité. Au cours des neuf derniers mois, la monnaie a connu la plus forte hausse de sa courte mais importante histoire, atteignant plus de 23 000 dollars l’unité au moment de mettre sous presse.

Les questions de M. Musk concernant les transactions de bitcoin font suite à un tweet plutôt négatif dans lequel il affirmait que le bitcoin était aussi “bs que les monnaies fiduciaires”. Cela a mis beaucoup d’analystes et de traders sur le fil du rasoir, les amenant à se demander où Musk se situait sur le long terme, étant donné qu’il a été assez gentil avec les cryptocurrences – en particulier le Dogecoin et le bitcoin – dans le passé.

BTC-prisanalyse: Etter å ha krasjet $ 2K, vil Bitcoins siste gjenoppretting holde seg?

Bitcoin-prisen har endelig begynt å korrigere fra sin parabolske rally til nye all-time highs. Under den europeiske handelssesjonen i dag så vi det første timelyset tett under støtten til det bearish stigende kilemønsteret (gule linjer), rundt 09:00 UTC.

Stigende kiler er klassiske bearish reverseringsmønstre og resulterer vanligvis i sterke korreksjoner

Morgenens utbrudd signaliserte til resten av markedet at BTC var i ferd med å dykke skarpt, og i løpet av få minutter etter at det nye lyset startet, falt bitcoinprisen over $ 980. Den sterke RSI-avviket på Bitcoins diagram (gul linje på RSI) var også en sterk indikasjon på at den forrige opptrenden ble svekket og at en korreksjon snart var på kortene.

47 milliarder dollar ble utslettet i løpet av reverseringen, ifølge Coinmarketcap- data , som nådde $ 21 874 før de brøt over 23 000 dollar.

Prisnivåer å se på kort sikt

På BTC / USD-diagrammet hver time kan vi se at 200-EMA (rød) ga den sterke støtten Bitcoin Revolution trengte for å presse tilbake mot den første nedturen. Siden den gang har okser klart å iscenesette en utvinning helt tilbake mot 50-EMA (blå), som nå fungerer som en motstand mot intradag.

Dette punktet overlapper også toppmotstanden til et nøkkel S / R-område (øverste grønne linje), som frem til i dag hadde bidratt til å øke Bitcoins pris i løpet av gårsdagens handelsøkt. Vi bør nå forvente at BTC vil kaste seg tilbake fra dette området og fortsette nedover – med mindre det selvfølgelig kommer betydelig fartmoment under den asiatiske handelssesjonen senere i dag.

Ser vi nedenfor, vil vi se på følgende områder for å gi tilbakevendende muligheter for bullish handelsmenn resten av denne uken;

(1) $ 22.700 – 0.236 Fibonacci-nivå og nøkkel S / R-nivå.
(2) $ 22,300 – Bestill blokkeringssone (andre grønne linje fra toppen).
(3) $ 21,950 – 200 EMA-linje (rød).
(4) $ 21,730 – 0,382 Fibonacci-nivå og bunnivå i neste ordens blokkeringssone.

Hvis Bitcoin-okser kan bryte tilbake over 50-EMA-linjen på kort sikt, vil imidlertid det tidligere stigende kilestøttenivået og den røde sonen rundt $ 24.000-området være de viktigste motstandene å overvinne.

Total markedskapital: 660 milliarder dollar.
Bitcoin markedskapital: 430 milliarder dollar.
Bitcoin dominans: 65,3%

Polkastarter launches platform for initial DEX offerings

Fixed swap pools will keep the token price stable until the original offer is bought out.

Polkastarter, a decentralized exchange on the Polkadot platform, is launching a mechanism for crowdfunding.

Several projects are already available for token sales via the platform

Projects can use a so-called “Fixed Swap Pool” to list their tokens and set up a pool with a fixed purchase price per token.

The product is scheduled to go online on December 15th. Three projects will use the platform to raise funds in the first three days after launch. Two of them are the decentralized, autonomous organizations SpiderDAO and Bitcoin Circuit.

Initial Decentralized Exchange Offerings, or IDOs for short , first appeared in the second half of 2019. At this point in time, decentralized exchanges (DEXs) had not yet gained much momentum in the market. With the DeFi explosion in 2020, DEXs became increasingly popular and IDOs became a cost-effective way to bypass the centralized model of Initial Exchange Offerings.

However, in order to launch an IDO, a project had to offer liquidity for both the sales value and the currency it was to be traded against. Automated market makers then adjust the selling price of the token throughout the sale based on supply and demand.

This allowed whale investors to “hook up” by driving up gas fees and buying up entire pools of newly created liquidity in order to secure cheaper tokens

Polkastarter enables projects to be listed at a fixed price that is retained as long as there are tokens in the original listing. This should ensure less volatility when introducing a token.

It also allows a project and its investors to be more transparent about the amount of money raised and the tokens sold. This data is not that easy to calculate when the tokens sold fluctuate so much.

Polkastarter will also offer additional tools for projects that want to raise funds. Anti-money laundering and identity verification measures are also observed. These tools are not mandatory, but are available when projects need them.

The Polkadot ecosystem that Polkastarter runs on recently announced its own DeFi alliance . The oracle network Chainlink is also among the founding members.

Global offline: What happens if the internet disappears for one day?

Jeff Hancock from Stanford University likes to give his students weekend assignments, which they then discuss in class. Until 2008, he sometimes offered them this experiment: not to use the internet for 48 hours and then tell them how this experience had affected them. However, when Hancock returned to teaching in 2009 after a year of study leave, the situation changed radically.

“When I offered them this assignment, the audience rebelled. The students were unanimous in saying it wasn’t fair and it wasn’t possible,” recalls Hancock, who studies the psychological and social aspects of online communication.

They said that if they were left without the internet even for the weekend, they wouldn’t be able to do the work set by other teachers, that it would ruin their social life, that their friends and relatives would think something had happened to them. Hancock had to give up and cancel the assignment, and since then he has never tried this experiment again.

“It was 2009, and today, when everyone has a smartphone, I’m afraid to think about how students will react to such an offer. They will probably write an application to the dean’s office for me,” he says.

However, now that we are all online all the time, the question posed by Hancock sounds particularly important: what would happen if the internet disappeared from our lives for at least one day? And the answer to that question does not seem to be quite what it seems at first sight.

In 1995, less than 1% of the world’s population had access to the Internet. The World Wide Web was something poorly understood – by and large, a toy for people from Western countries. More than 20 years have passed and today the Internet is accessible to 3.5 billion people – almost half the world’s population – and every second that number increases by 10 people.

According to a study by the Pew Research Centre, one in five people in the US is online “almost permanently” and 73% of Americans access the Internet at least once a day. In the UK, the same is true; a 2016 survey showed that almost 90% of the population had been using the internet in the last 3 months. Many people simply cannot imagine their life without the Internet.

“One of the biggest problems with the internet is that people take it for granted and do not realise what a key role it now plays in our lives. They can’t even imagine what it’s like not to be online,” says William Dutton of the University of Michigan, author of Society and the Internet.

But the Internet is not something that is eternal and immutable. Theoretically, you can lose access to it – within a country or around the world. For example, it can happen as a result of a cyber attack. If hackers release viruses that find vulnerabilities in routers – the devices that provide the traffic – the Internet will hang. Closing domain name servers – Internet address books – will cause massive disruptions to the network, and sites will no longer be loaded.

Serious problems will also arise in the event of damage to deep-water cables that transmit huge volumes of Internet traffic, different continents will be cut off from each other. It is not easy for intruders to get to these cables, but sometimes they are damaged in an accident. In 2008, people in the Middle East, South East Asia and India experienced enormous difficulties in accessing the Internet when submarine cables were damaged three times – accidentally or intentionally.

Some governments have special ‘switches’ that can be used to cut off the Internet in their own countries. The Egyptian authorities did this during the Arab Spring in 2011 to make it more difficult for demonstrators to coordinate their actions. Turkey and Iran also blocked Internet access during civil protests. It is believed that the Chinese government also has such a “switchboard”. And American senators have proposed making it in the US as a protective measure against a possible cyber attack.

However, it is not so easy to make such a switchboard. The more the government and the better developed its technology, the harder it is to completely disable the Internet there.

However, the biggest threat to the Internet comes from space. A large geomagnetic storm with solar flares pointing in our direction will disable satellites, power grids and computer systems.

“A single solar flare can do things that bombs and terrorists cannot do in a few seconds. Sooner or later such a geomagnetic storm is bound to happen,” says David Eagleman, a neurobiologist at Stanford University and author of Why the Internet Matters.

But in most cases, however, interruptions to the Internet will be short-term.

“A lot of effort will be put into solving these problems, if they do occur. Internet service providers and network equipment companies have specialists and action plans on how to restore the Internet in case of force majeure,” says Scott Borg of the United States Cyber Consequences Unit.

However, we are so used to the fact that the Internet is always at hand, that even relatively short interruptions will affect our lives. But the consequences of these interruptions are not exactly what they seem at first glance.

In particular, the damage caused to the economy will not be very great. In 2008, the US Department of Homeland Security asked Borg to give a forecast in the event of an internet blackout. The scientist and his colleagues have analyzed the economic impact of computer disruptions since 2000. After reviewing quarterly reports from 20 companies that they claimed were the most affected by these events, and more general economic statistics, analysts found that the economic impact of these disruptions was surprisingly small – at least in cases where the problems could be resolved within four days (longer internet cuts were not considered).

“In some cases, companies reported supposedly huge losses of hundreds of millions or even billions of dollars. But in reality, even in industries such as hospitality, airline and brokerage, there were no very large losses,” recalls Borg.

It turned out that the lack of internet for several days simply forced people to do their work later than planned.

“People did their job just as if they had the internet, it just happened in two or three days. So such disruptions are not a threat to the economy: in fact they are comparable to long weekends,” says Borg.

Moreover, in some cases, short-term internet outages have resulted in productivity gains. In another study, Borg and his colleagues analysed situations in companies where the internet was cut off for four or more hours. Instead of sitting idly by, employees did the work that they usually put off, such as cleaning up paper. As a result, productivity increased.

“We jokingly suggested that if all companies shut down their computers for a few hours each month and force employees to do all the work they normally put off, this would result in a total increase in productivity. In my opinion, the same positive effect will be seen in the economy as a whole,” says Borg.

With short-term shutdowns – for a day or so – the travel industry should not be seriously affected. Planes can fly without the Internet, trains and buses will not stop either. However, longer outages will have a negative impact on logistics. It will be difficult for companies to operate without the internet. “I suggested developing a plan in case of internet outages that would help people and companies cope with the situation, but I didn’t hear anybody really working in this direction,” says Iglman.

The massive crisis with the fall of the network is likely to hit small entrepreneurs and blue collars particularly hard. In 1998, 90% of the 50 million pagers in the US stopped working due to a satellite failure. Analysis of the consequences of the shutdown revealed that people’s reaction to the event was directly dependent on socio-economic factors. Upper middle class representatives are managers, doctors, engineers, etc. – did not take this as a serious problem.

However, blue collars, such as carpenters and plumbers, were totally dependent on pagers to find work and were left without money for several days. Single mothers whose children went to kindergartens were always in a state of anxiety, as they could not be reached by pager if there were any situations that required their participation.

“This suggests that a person’s reaction to losing access to the internet is likely to depend on their socio-economic status,” says Dutton.

However, the psychological consequences of such an event will be very serious, and many people will experience feelings of loneliness and anxiety.

“The most important function of the internet is communication between people,” says Hancock. We’re used to being able to contact anyone at any time, wherever they are. If we lose this opportunity, the consequences for the psyche will be negative. Borg also had to experience these emotions:

“When I suddenly realise that I have forgotten my smartphone, I feel naked. I immediately begin to think: “Do I know where I’m going? If my car breaks down, will someone give me their phone so that I can ask for help?”

There has already been a similar example in history. In 1975, a fire in a New York telephone company left 300 blocks of Manhattan without a phone for 23 days. As soon as the connection was re-established, scientists conducted a survey of 190 people. They found that for 80% of the respondents, not having a phone was a problem – because they were unable to contact friends and family. More than 67% of those surveyed admitted that they felt “disconnected” and “concerned” without a telephone, and almost 75% said that they felt more confident after the connection was re-established.

“There is an opinion that, having lost the internet, people will become more sociable and will want to spend more time with friends and family, but I think that this is not the case. In fact, most internet users are more active in communicating with other people – compared to those who don’t go online,” says Dutton.

Stine Lomborg from Copenhagen University agrees with him:

“If we didn’t have smartphones, we wouldn’t have started talking to strangers more often at the bus stop, not at all.

The loss of internet communication may force people to communicate more in specific situations: for example, colleagues will discuss work-related issues in person rather than in emails, but this will have negative consequences overall.

“The world will not collapse if we lose the Internet for a day. But I think that for most people even one day without the Internet will be full of torment,” he adds. However, this feeling will pass with time.

“The loss of the internet will make many people realize the important place it occupies in their lives, but soon we will take it for granted again. I would like to think that the loss of the internet will make us look at the world differently, but I’m afraid that’s not going to happen,” concludes Hancock.

Maybe he is right. But even so, Hancock can’t convince his students to give up the Internet at least for the weekend.

The crypto security – big hit or overregulation?

Specialist lawyer Lutz Auffenberg and his law firm Fin Law have specialized in the field of fintech and innovative technologies. In particular, blockchain technology and its regulation are the focus of his activities. In his guest post he takes a critical look at the draft law on the introduction of electronic securities.

This article is first on the FIN LAW blog published

With the bill on the introduction of electronic securities, the ministries of justice and finance also proposed the creation of a new regulatory regime for crypto securities in the summer of this year. This is supposed to be a special form of electronic securities which, according to the definition in the current draft law, only differs from other electronic securities in that it is entered in a crypto securities register.

Crypto securities registers are to be kept by companies that are appropriately supervised by the financial supervisory authorities. According to the current idea of ​​the draft bill, they must be kept on a decentralized, forgery-proof recording system in which the data is logged in the chronological order and saved against unauthorized deletion and subsequent changes. According to the justification for the draft, the term crypto securities register is chosen to be open to technology. Since, according to the definition, only decentralized storage methods may be used, according to the current state of the art, ultimately only recording systems based on distributed ledger technologies can be considered. However, the use of public blockchains should not be considered for crypto securities registrars, because, for example, the risk of a hard fork event could not be controlled. Only private blockchains should therefore be of practical use.

What information should be stored in the cryptocurrency registry?

Comprehensive information about registered securities should be stored in crypto securities registers. According to the draft, crypto security registrars must in particular clearly identify the security (e.g. ISIN), information about the issuer, the owner, obstacles to disposal, rights of third parties and information about whether the crypto security is in the name of a securities trading bank or the custodian (collective custody) or registered to the names of the individual owners.

The new regulation is intended to ensure that the holder identified in the crypto securities register is also legally considered the holder. Disposals about crypto securities should only take effect when they are entered in the underlying crypto securities register.

Do tokenized securities have to be entered in a crypto securities register?

The new rules for crypto-securities would not be mandatory when issuing tokenized securities. As things stand at present, it would still be possible to issue “classic” security tokens on a public blockchain, which would be linked to certain investor rights via the underlying token terms. However, the great advantage of crypto securities over unregistered security tokens would be their ability to be acquired in good faith and unencumbered. This property, which according to current securities law is not possible without the physical embodiment of a security, could make crypto securities marketable.

Hur kommer tappande ETH-BTC-spridning att påverka Ethereums pris?

Med de senaste uppdateringarna, av Digital Yuans testning och lansering, och USA: s presidentval närmar sig, är detaljhandlarnas uppmärksamhet nu på Bitcoin. Under de tidigare prisuppgångarna var trenden att Bitcoin ledde altcoins och ETH, XRP och andra altcoins från topp 10, baserat på börsvärde, följde noga.

Men den här gången driver Bitcoins vinster det framåt från resten av förpackningen. Detta är den främsta anledningen till att ETH-BTC-korrelationen sjunker.

Baserat på realiserad data om volatilitetsspridning från Skew sjunker ETH-BTC-spridningen, och detta signalerar att ETHs pris i allt högre grad kan trendas som Bitcoin. Spridningen var dock nästan 50% i mitten av september. Bitcoins prisåtgärd antyder en ökning av denna spridning inom en snar framtid. Priset har redan gått över 13 000 dollar efter att ha nått högst 13 000 dollar fyra dagar i rad. Det underförstådda volatilitetsdiagrammet antyder att spreadet kommer att fortsätta sjunka och trenden inte kommer att förändras. Den underförstådda volatiliteten för november, december och 2021 sjunker närmare noll. Bitcoins rally kan dock överraska detaljhandlare och ändra trenderna i dessa diagram.

Berättelsen om att tappa ETH-reserver har inget inflytande på volatilitetsspridningen för närvarande. Intressant har dock ETH-reserver på platsbörser sjunkit precis som Bitcoin och Tether.

Så reserverna för både ETH och BTC är låga, och detta signalerar mot brist och prishöjning. Eftersom ETH har högre volatilitet kan priset dock stiga högre och inom kortare tid jämfört med Bitcoin. Så tappande korrelation skulle möjligen ha en positiv inverkan på ETH-priserna på kort sikt.

Under de senaste sju dagarna har Bitcoins pris ökat med 12,5% och det handlar över $ 13 000, för ETH är veckotillväxten 5,27% och den handlar över $ 390. När lanseringen av ETH 2.0 närmar sig kan ETHs pris gå upp snabbare än korrelationen med Bitcoin skulle göra. Insättningsavtalet är planerat att lanseras den 6 november, och om detta realiseras kan ETH: s tjurkörning föregå BTC: er. För BTC är faktorerna som driver priserna annorlunda än för ETH. Bitcoins pris drivs främst av knapphet, HODLing, Miners Position Index. Men i fallet med ETH drivs priset fortfarande av utvecklingen i lanseringen av ETH 2.0 och det faktiska verktyget. Detta gör ETH mer lik XRP än BTC. Det är dock börsvärde och handelsvolym, maximalistisk känsla leder till en ökad korrelation mellan ETH och BTC.

REvil cyber gang lodge 1 milione di dollari BTC in una spinta al reclutamento

La cyber gang russa Revil ha depositato BTC per un valore di 1 milione di dollari su un forum pubblico nel tentativo di invogliare nuovi volti ad unirsi a loro.

Il gruppo Revil è noto per lo spiegamento di attacchi ransomware e per l’estorsione delle loro vittime. Una volta il gruppo ha rubato 1 TB di informazioni dallo studio legale Grubman Shire Meiselas & Sacks e ha chiesto un riscatto per non averle condivise.

Sembra che la cyber gang stia ora cercando di aggiungere qualche volto nuovo per espandere la portata degli attacchi. La banda mira a fare nuove aggiunte di hacker professionisti per aumentare la scala degli attacchi. Per infondere fiducia e mostrare la propria attitudine, la cybergang Revil ha depositato 99 BTC del valore di quasi 1 milione di dollari su una piattaforma aperta di criminali informatici.

L’operazione RaaS della cyber gang di Revil è privata

La maggior parte degli attacchi ransomware viene eseguita come Ransomware-as-a-Service (RaaS). Gli sviluppatori di malware hanno il compito di creare e progettare il codice dannoso e la via di pagamento. Successivamente, gli affiliati vengono iscritti per violare le entità e lanciare attacchi ransomware.

Come parte dell’accordo, gli sviluppatori ottengono tra il 30 e il 20% dell’importo del riscatto effettuato da ogni affiliato. Gli affiliati tendono a mantenere il resto del ricavato tra il 70-80 per cento. All’interno della struttura di Revil, l’operazione RaaS è un accordo isolato. Ciò significa che gli affiliati vengono esaminati e intervistati prima di entrare a far parte del processo.

Il reclutamento di Revil è motivo di preoccupazione

Il deposito Bitcoin Compass aveva lo scopo di aumentare la sicurezza e guadagnare la fiducia nel gruppo di hacker. I fondi sono stati accompagnati da un post di iscrizione che sottolineava i meriti dei personaggi da cui provengono. Alcune delle competenze menzionate includono test di penetrazione, esperienza con msf / cs / koadic, nas / nastro, iper-v.

Il capo scienziato della società di sicurezza informatica McAfee, Raj Samani, ha dichiarato che l’ultimo esercizio di iscrizione della cyber gang Revil è stato motivo di preoccupazione. Nel 2019, McAfee ha descritto l’anello come la reincarnazione della cyber gang GandCrab, che ha interrotto le operazioni di 23 organizzazioni legate al governo negli Stati Uniti.

Bitcoin combatte per $ 10.000: il sell-off è finito? Analisi dei prezzi BTC aggiornata

Solo quattro giorni fa, un Bitcoin veniva scambiato per oltre $ 12.000. Tuttavia, i mercati delle criptovalute hanno seguito i mercati globali e al momento della stesura di queste righe Bitcoin combatte per chiudere la candela giornaliera sopra i 10.000 $.

Se il cattivo sangue proveniente dai mercati azionari non è stato sufficiente, è arrivata la svendita di SUSHI da parte del suo creatore

Ciò ha portato i token defi, principalmente Ethereum, a forti cali, che non hanno ignorato Bitcoin come criptovaluta primaria.

A partire da ora, Bitcoin segna $ 9850 al minimo di oggi, che è una perdita intraday di $ 600. $ 9850 è anche il prezzo BTC più basso registrato dal 26 luglio 2020.

Supporto e resistenza chiave per il breve termine di Bitcoin

Il livello critico qui è di $ 10.000. Non è rimasto molto tempo per la chiusura giornaliera e Bitcoin cercherà di finire oggi e la candela di domani (il settimanale) sopra i 10.000 $.

Nel caso in cui Bitcoin perda il numero a 5 cifre, $ 9800 sarà il supporto successivo. Più in basso si trovano $ 9600, che è anche il divario CME.

Se quest’ultimo non regge, il supporto successivo potrebbe essere trovato a $ 9400, seguito dalla linea della media mobile a 200 giorni a $ 9100.

D’altra parte, c’è un’alta probabilità che vedremo una correzione dopo così tanto sangue. Il primo livello di resistenza ora diventa la linea della media mobile a 100 giorni a $ 10.250 (la linea bianca sul grafico giornaliero). Questo è seguito da $ 10.500, il massimo precedente del 2020 prima di agosto.

Più in alto si trovano $ 10.800 e $ 11.000 – $ 11.100, insieme alla linea della media mobile di 50 giorni (contrassegnata in rosa nel grafico giornaliero seguente)

Da un punto di vista tecnico, l’RSI si sta avvicinando al livello di ipervenduto. Ciò supporta l’opzione di qualche correzione rialzista. In aggiunta a quanto sopra, c’è un po ‘di divergenza rialzista sull’RSI a 4 ore.

Al contrario di quanto sopra, le ultime gocce sono state seguite da un’enorme quantità di volume. Questo è a favore degli orsi. Il volume di vendite di giovedì è stato il più alto degli ultimi 30 giorni. Quindi a breve termine, potremmo essere una correzione temporanea; tuttavia, il medio termine è ancora ribassista fino a prova contraria (una chiusura settimanale superiore a $ 11.000).
