Bitcoin SV, EOS, Aave Price Analysis: 08 de dezembro

Ethereum está adormecido no curto prazo, e a dominância do Bitcoin também tem estado relativamente estável nos últimos dias. O mercado de altcoin estava esperando por uma quebra ou quebra. O Bitcoin Profit enfrentou forte resistência de $ 180, enquanto a EOS tentou fracamente superar o nível de resistência de $ 3, um movimento que sinalizaria uma força de baixa enfraquecida.

Aave tinha um fluxo constante de compradores, mas exibiu uma divergência de baixa que poderia causar uma queda no preço

O BSV está em tendência de alta desde o final de novembro. No entanto, o nível de resistência na região de $ 180 tem sido rígido. Há poucos dias, o preço formou um triângulo descendente (laranja) e estourou, mas os ursos não permitiram que o nível de $ 183 fosse invertido para suporte.

O MACD mostrou falta de ímpeto para o BSV, depois de ser negociado entre US $ 177 e US $ 187 nos últimos dias. Uma reviravolta na resistência ao suporte em $ 183 é necessária para que os touros tentem capturar o nível psicológico de $ 200 mais uma vez. Como muitos outros altcoins, a BSV também registrou baixo volume de negócios nos últimos dias.

A EOS continuou com o tema da redução do volume de negociação, pois parecia consolidar-se sob o nível de resistência de $ 3

O preço fechou fora do canal descendente. Embora isso indicasse uma reversão de alta, não houve pressão de compra para impulsionar o preço.

Um fechamento acima de $ 3 indicaria que a tendência de baixa das últimas semanas enfraqueceu. Assim que a dinâmica mudar, a EOS pode subir para $ 3,2, que foi a base do canal.

Aave mostrou uma divergência de baixa entre o preço e o momentum e viu uma queda de $ 94 para $ 88 nas últimas horas. A cotação também fechou abaixo do canal ascendente.

The Central Bank of Kazakhstan has allowed its own digital currency to be issued

The National Bank of Kazakhstan is studying the possibility of introducing digital currency of the central bank (CBDC), the regulator said.

At this stage, experts are developing a report with different scenarios for the issue of CBDC in Kazakhstan. It is expected to be presented in the second half of 2021.

After discussion of the document, the CBDC is ready to launch a pilot project on phased implementation of the CBDC.

The National Bank is part of an international research group on digital currencies, along with 28 other central banks, the press service said.

It should be reminded that the proposal to create a national digital currency by Kazakhstan was voiced earlier.

In June, the President of Kazakhstan signed a bill „On amendments and additions to some legislative acts of the Republic of Kazakhstan on regulation of digital technologies. According to it, digital assets are recognized as property.

Thought they were mining a fortune in bitcoins, it was a planetary scam – US extradites responsible

Another Ponzi scheme dismantled – America is no laughing matter with those who try to rip off their fellow citizens. They even go looking for those responsible far from the American borders. This time, it was as far as Panama that the US justice struck, by extraditing one of the main persons responsible for the Bitcoin Compass crypto-scam.

Tens of millions of dollars embezzled

Unfortunately, pyramid scam schemes abound in the cryptosphere, which is teeming with inexperienced investors. In a recent press release, the Department of Justice of the Southern District of New York just announced he has done extradite the co-founder of one of these Ponzis .

Gutemberg Dos Santos , who has dual Brazilian and American nationality, was first arrested in Panama , before being returned to the United States .

With 5 other people, he is accused of having set up a fake company proposing to invest in the mining and trading of cryptomonnaies :

“Gutemberg Dos Santos played a key role in an investment scam of international scope that promised extraordinary rates of return on phantom cryptocurrency investments, defrauding victims of tens of millions of dollars. “

A subscription scam

Investors, victims of Dos Santos and his accomplices, were encouraged to invest in AirBit Club on the basis of the promise of „guaranteed“ profits in exchange for cash investments in the different levels of club memberships .

Since 2015 , they have encouraged more and more members to join their fake club, thanks to multilevel marketing (MLM) which rewarded members for recruiting new people.

In fact, the money collected from AirBit Club members was used by Dos Santos and his accomplices to afford „luxury cars, jewelry and houses“ and to finance lavish conferences to promote the club, to attract more victims in their net.

The defendants also worked to launder the theft from their system, through several domestic and foreign bank accounts . The judicial authorities estimate that at least 20 million dollars have been laundered.

Dos Santos will face 3 charges , for electronic fraud , money laundering and conspiracy to bank fraud . He faces up to 20 years in prison for each of the first 2 charges and 30 years in prison for the third.

5 raisons pour lesquelles les bitcoins ont atteint un prix record

Le bitcoin a atteint lundi un nouveau sommet historique de 19 864 dollars, prolongeant sa hausse annuelle jusqu’à un étonnant 170 % en 2020, une année qui a vu des fluctuations tumultueuses sur les marchés mondiaux.

Voici cinq raisons pour lesquelles la plus ancienne et la plus grande cryptocarte a atteint de nouveaux sommets.

Intérêt institutionnel

Certains investisseurs institutionnels prennent des risques sur les bitcoins (BTC, +6,89%), comme par exemple en achetant le Grayscale Bitcoin Trust (GBTC), une société cotée en bourse, selon un rapport du 20 novembre des analystes de JPMorgan Chase. (Note : Grayscale est une unité de Digital Currency Group, qui possède CoinDesk.) Guggenheim, un gestionnaire de fonds qui supervise 233 milliards de dollars pour les investisseurs, a déclaré dans des documents réglementaires que son fonds de macro opportunités pourrait allouer jusqu’à 10% des actifs nets au GBTC, a rapporté CoinDesk le 28 novembre. De plus, le nombre de contrats à terme sur le bitcoin code est en hausse sur le Chicago Mercantile Exchange, ce qui est considéré comme un autre signe que les grands investisseurs utilisent les marchés des matières premières pour spéculer sur le prix de la cryptocouronne, selon le rapport de JPMorgan.

Les gestionnaires de fonds spéculatifs ont une vision à long terme

Les gestionnaires de fonds spéculatifs bien connus appellent de plus en plus les bitcoins un investissement à long terme. Des gestionnaires légendaires, dont Paul Tudor Jones II et Stanley Druckenmiller, ont récemment déclaré que le prix de la cryptocouronne, telle qu’elle est libellée en dollars américains, pourrait augmenter à mesure que la Réserve fédérale imprimera de l’argent pour aider à financer les projets de loi de relance d’urgence du gouvernement liés au coronavirus. La banque centrale a jusqu’à présent créé plus de 3 000 milliards de dollars d’argent frais en 2020, soit plus des trois quarts du montant total créé au cours de ses 107 années d’existence.

Les analystes sont positifs

Les analystes de Wall Street ont fait des commentaires positifs ces derniers jours. AllianceBernstein, un gestionnaire de fonds de 631 milliards de dollars, a publié un rapport disant que l’environnement économique post-pandémique pourrait créer un rôle pour bitcoin dans l’allocation des actifs des investisseurs, a rapporté CoinDesk lundi. Inigo Fraser Jenkins, co-responsable de l’équipe de stratégie de portefeuille chez Bernstein Research, a écrit que lorsqu’il s’agit de jouer un rôle dans la couverture contre l’inflation, „le moteur des bitcoins est similaire à celui de l’or“.

L’effet PayPal

PayPal (PYPL) permet aux clients – quelque 346 millions de comptes actifs – d’acheter des bitcoins. Le réseau de paiement de personne à personne a annoncé le 21 octobre qu’il permettrait aux clients d’acheter, de vendre et de conserver des bitcoins. Selon l’entreprise, la cryptocarte deviendra une „source de financement pour les achats chez ses 26 millions de commerçants dans le monde“.

Ok sur OKEx

La semaine dernière, le marché du bitcoin a surmonté une source majeure d’inquiétude : les sorties de bitcoin de l’une des plus grandes bourses de cryptocourrier du monde, OKEx. Certains traders et analystes avaient spéculé que la fin d’une suspension de cinq semaines des retraits pourrait se traduire par des liquidations qui pourraient mettre la pression de vente sur le marché du bitcoin. Des données extraites du réseau de la chaîne de blocs sous-jacente de la cryptocouronne ont montré que quelque 24 631 bitcoins, d’une valeur de 500 millions de dollars aux prix actuels, ont été retirés de la bourse dans les 24 heures suivant la levée de la suspension la semaine dernière.

Mais l’évolution du prix du bitcoin montre que le marché a ignoré la nouvelle, ainsi que d’autres développements négatifs, tels que des rumeurs selon lesquelles le département du Trésor américain pourrait envisager une réglementation onéreuse sur les cryptocurrences. Les traders semblent également avoir ignoré les données montrant que certains gros négociants de bitcoin – connus sous le nom de „baleines“ – pourraient se préparer à se débarrasser de leurs avoirs en réponse à la hausse des prix des cryptocurrences.

Blockstack samarbeider med Staked, slik at STX-holdere kan tjene bitcoinSTX-token skal distribueres med Stakes infrastrukturtjenester …

Blockstack PBC, en uavhengig enhet i Stacks-økosystemet som bringer apper og smarte kontrakter til bitcoin, kunngjorde i dag sitt partnerskap med Staked, en leverandør av infrastrukturtjenester for institusjoner som ønsker å tjene belønninger på sine kryptoaktiva. Stacks gjør det mulig for alle å bygge ekspressive desentraliserte applikasjoner (dApps) på toppen av Bitcoins sikre blockchain uten å endre noen kjernekode. Med Staked kan STX-holdere tjene BTC for stabling av STX, en første innovasjon.

Dette partnerskapet utvider omfanget av hvor STX-innehavere trygt og enkelt kan tjene BTC og bekrefter Stakes ledende posisjon på markedet for kryptoaktiver. Stacks ’nye konsensusalgoritme, Proof-of-Transfer (PoX), gir STX-tokenholdere som oppfyller et dynamisk minimumskrav for å tjene BTC for å hjelpe til med å sikre Stacks-nettverket. Stacking av STX-tokens skiller seg fra staking av Proof-of-Stake (PoS) -tokener, hvor stakere tjener belønninger pålydende i samme krypto-aktiva. Som en modell for flere eiendeler utvider Blockstacks stablingsløsning nye inntjeningsmuligheter til BTC.

„Blockstack er begeistret for å samarbeide med Staked,“ sa Blockstack PBC medstifter, Muneeb Ali. “Forankret av den tidstestede sikkerheten til Bitcoin, bringer Stacks apper og smarte kontrakter til Bitcoin, og gjør det mulig for brukere å tjene den mest verdsatte kryptoaktiva, bitcoin. Flere STX-holdere, spesielt institusjonelle aktører, vil sannsynligvis delta i konsensus gjennom tjenesteleverandører; Staked var et klart valg som en lanseringspartner med sitt rykte som en ledende innsatsleverandør med mest tilgjengelige tokens og lang suksess.

Som en tidlig leder i stakesamfunnet har Staked sett førstehånds at det er et ønske om å tjene BTC, som har samlet over 60% de siste to månedene. Lokalets robuste infrastruktur gjør det mulig for STX-holdere med høy verdi å stable STX og tjene BTC-avkastning.

„Partnerskap med Blockstack gir en ny opptjeningsmodell for kryptoaktiva,“ sa Stakes administrerende direktør, Tim Ogilvie. “Nå kan kundene våre tjene bitcoin på denne dynamiske, banebrytende måten. Vi er glade for å samarbeide med Blockstack og drive fremtidige inntjeningsmuligheter fremover sammen. ”

New US Senator wants to bring Bitcoin „into the nationwide debate

After the U.S. elections Bitcoin could have a new advocate in a high position.

In an interview with news channel ABC News, newly elected U.S. Senator Cynthia Lummis reaffirmed her support for Bitcoin (BTC), explicitly mentioning that she „hopes to bring Bitcoin into the nationwide debate.

In an excerpt from the program „Good Morning America“ (GMA), the soon-to-be senator from Wyoming made the relevant remarks, referring to her experience as former state Treasury Secretary. Lummis is thereby probably the highest ranking politician, who appears as an advocate for the market-leading crypto currency.

„I am the former finance minister of our state and have invested its permanent sovereign wealth fund. I looked for a good store of value and made a find with Bitcoin. Our own national currency is affected by inflation, but Bitcoin is not. In total, only 21 million Bitcoin will be removed and that’s it. There is only a limited amount in circulation. So I am confident that in the future they will become a major player among the store of value we will be, and for a long time to come“.

At the same time, the Senator weighed the hints of moderator Sara Haines that Bitcoin would be used for tax evasion and money laundering. She did not go into this further.

As Cointelegraph had previously reported, Lummis is an „early adopter“ of Bitcoin. The politician had already begun to invest in the crypto currency in 2013 after her son-in-law Will Cole, who himself works for the crypto company Unchained Capital, had convinced her to do so.

While the media primarily emphasize that Lummis is the first female senator from Wyoming, the crypto-community hopes that she is also the first member of parliament to support Bitcoin.

USA: Pay passports with Bitcoin and receive them within 4 weeks

A California-based Visa and Passport processing company announced that it will accept Bitcoin as a means of payment. Meanwhile, operations at the U.S. State Department are gradually returning to normal.

According to an announcement by passport and visa issuer Peninsula Visa in San Jose on November 6, the company stated that its customers can pay for selected services related to their passports with Bitcoin (BTC). Peninsula Visa is supported by retail payment company Coinbase Commerce. In addition to second passport applications, the company will also offer passport renewals and name changes. U.S. citizens over the age of 16 may hold a „primary“ passport book or card with a validity of 10 years and a second one with a validity of 4 years.

„This feels like the right time to offer travelers the ability to pay with Bitcoin,“ said Evan James, COO of Peninsula Visa. He hopes that travel would return to normal after the pandemic.

In March, government agencies and businesses were closed for the first time to curb the spread of COVID-19. Many of the 26 U.S. State Department passport offices across the continent and in Puerto Rico were also affected. This led to delays in the processing of passports for first-time applicants as well as for those who wanted to renew or change their documents, for example because of marriage. According to a report in the LA Times, there was a backlog of almost one million passports on September 23.

However, many of the offices of the Foreign Ministry have already reopened for passport applicants. The government agency announced on November 3 that it had reduced the processing time to 10-12 weeks for standard applications and 4-6 weeks for the accelerated procedure. Prior to the COVID crisis, under certain circumstances it was possible to obtain a passport within one week.

Private companies have already offered Bitcoin owners the option of paying for international flights with crypto. However, governments were not willing to accept it as a means of payment for certain services. In June, a Venezuelan government agency briefly accepted Bitcoin as payment for passport applications from Venezuelan citizens living abroad. This was revoked the next day.

Por qué el Plan B confía en que Bitcoin alcanzará los 100.000-288.000 dólares antes de diciembre de 2021

El plan B se atiene a su predicción basada en el modelo S2F de $100k-$288k antes de diciembre de 2021.

A pesar de varias actualizaciones y anuncios en el frente regulatorio e institucional, él se mantiene en los 100 mil dólares. Aunque hay varios Maximalistas de Bitcoin en Crypto Twitter que piden 100.000 dólares para finales de 2020, PlanB destaca con su predicción porque está respaldada por un modelo y tiene tiempo.

Faltan 13 meses para diciembre de 2021. 13 meses es tiempo suficiente para que el precio de Bitcoin pase por 3 fases del ciclo de mercado. 100.000 dólares no suena poco realista con el componente de tiempo que implica.

Se le cita diciendo que cada vez más BTC se está moviendo a un almacenamiento en frío profundo. Cuando hay una corrección o el precio cae por debajo del reciente máximo, hay cientos de pequeñas compras de 0,01 BTC también en las bolsas para que las ballenas redondeen el BTC vendido por manos débiles.

Cuando Bitcoin se almacena en cámaras frigoríficas o en carteras privadas, el suministro disminuye. Además, esto ocurre a los pocos meses de la reducción a la mitad y se sabe que eso causa un shock de suministro. La lenta acumulación de la escasez de suministro impulsa un mercado alcista en los próximos 18 a 20 meses. Los comerciantes que han negociado durante más de cuatro o cinco años están familiarizados con este efecto, cuando la reducción a la mitad de 2012 y 2016 llevó a la corrida alcista de 2013 y 2017 respectivamente. La reducción a la mitad en 2020 está bien encaminada para lo mismo, 6 meses después y el precio ya está por encima de los 15.000 dólares.

Una vez que la escasez de oferta es significativa, la oferta que se está vendiendo exige un precio más alto, y naturalmente se deriva hacia arriba. Este fue el caso, en la primera semana de noviembre cuando los gráficos mostraron una pared de venta de BTC, sin que prácticamente no quedara nada de BTC para vender. Nueve meses después de la reducción a la mitad, casi el 100% de los HODLers estarían sentados en los beneficios y la presión de venta podría aumentar. Las bolsas al contado podrían inundarse de BTC para su venta, y el precio podría seguir aumentando, impulsando el interés minorista e institucional y generando nueva demanda.

Cuando esta demanda es absorbida, y se genera nueva demanda de manera consistente, la voluntad de vender de los HODLers y los mineros puede caer. Esperando el próximo gran movimiento de precios para registrar ganancias no realizadas, los HODLers pueden elegir sentarse en sus activos por unas semanas o meses. Una vez que el precio se acelere lo suficiente, una fase de manía erosionará el precio y la demanda.

Dado que esta acción del precio y las fases del ciclo del mercado descritas anteriormente, todas ellas comenzaron en mayo de 2020, se extienden hasta mayo de 2021. Basado en el S2F del Plan B, el precio continuará una tendencia al alza incluso después.

La tendencia de los precios de Bitcoin

La narrativa de Bitcoin que se reduce a la mitad y las fases del ciclo del mercado han apoyado el crecimiento de los precios y el impulso hasta ahora. Esta puede ser la razón de la confianza inquebrantable del Plan B en Bitcoin a $100k-$288k antes de diciembre de 2021.

Gericht in NYC hat kein Recht, einen „internationalen“ Fall zu hören

Gericht in NYC hat kein Recht, einen „internationalen“ Fall zu hören, argumentiert die Firma Bancor

Anwälte argumentierten, dass die Beschwerde „darauf beruht, dass ein Mann in Wisconsin eine Börse in Singapur benutzt hat, um von einem Schweizer Unternehmen ausgegebene Wertmarken zu kaufen“.

Das Rechtsteam einer Kryptofirma, die mit möglichen Verstößen laut Bitcoin Code gegen das Wertpapierrecht konfrontiert ist, fordert die Abweisung des Falles aus geographischen Gründen.

Wie kommt man auf die Begründung?

Laut Gerichtsakten, die am 13. Oktober im südlichen Bezirk von New York eingereicht wurden, argumentierten die Anwälte der Blockkettenfirma BProtocol Foundation, dass ein Gericht außerhalb der USA aufgrund des „internationalen“ Charakters der Beschwerde besser geeignet sei, den Fall zu überwachen. Das Rechtsteam der BProtocol Foundation sagte, die Beschwerde beruhe „darauf, dass ein Mann in Wisconsin eine Börse in Singapur benutzte, um von einer Schweizer Firma ausgegebene Wertmarken zu kaufen“, was für einen Prozess in New York nicht geeignet sei.

„Der südliche Bezirk von New York ist nur für den Anwalt des Klägers geeignet – nicht für eine der Parteien oder einen der Möchtegern-Zeugen“, behauptete das Rechtsteam der BProtocol Foundation. BProtocol ist die Muttergesellschaft des dezentralisierten Liquiditätsnetzwerks Bancor.

Die Mitbegründer Eyal Hertzog, Yehuda Levi, Guy Benartzi und Galia Benartzi schlugen dem Richter Alvin K. Hellerstein vor, dass der Hauptkläger in der Sammelklage, Timothy C. Holsworth, eine ähnliche Klage in Israel einreichen könnte, wo die vier einen Wohnsitz haben. Die Blockkettenfirma hat dort und in der Schweiz ebenfalls Büros.

„Israel hat ein robustes Rechtssystem, auf das der Kläger zurückgreifen könnte.

Die BProtocol Foundation ist eine von sieben Kryptofirmen, die nach einer Reihe von Klagen, die im April eingereicht wurden, vor Gericht in New York stehen. Die Krypto-Währungsumtauschunternehmen Binance, KuCoin, BiBox und BitMEX wurden in den Klagen zusammen mit den angeblichen Krypto-Emittenten Block.one, Quantstamp, KayDex, Civic, Status und der Tron Foundation genannt.

In den Klagen wird behauptet, dass die Börsen nicht lizenzierte Wertpapiere ohne Broker-Dealer-Lizenz verkauften und an Marktmanipulationen beteiligt waren, zusätzlich zu einer Reihe von ihnen, die den Investoren selektiv Informationen über den Verkauf ihrer Token als Wertpapiere vorenthielten. Im Fall der BProtocol Foundation behauptet Holsworth, die Blockchain-Firma habe mit dem Verkauf ihrer Bancor Network Token (BNT) gegen die US-Wertpapiergesetze verstoßen.

Die Frage, ob es sich bei den fraglichen Krypto-Vermögenswerten um Wertpapiere handelt oder nicht, ist jedoch nicht die Hauptargumentation, die hinter dem Antrag des Anwaltsteams auf Abweisung steht. Es stellte fest, dass „das Gericht nicht zu dieser Frage kommen muss, um die Beschwerde abzuweisen“.

„Da der Kläger seinen BNT an einer Börse mit Sitz in Singapur gekauft hat, war seine Transaktion für die Vereinigten Staaten völlig fremd“, so die Anwälte der Blockkettenfirma. „Kein Teil des Securities Act ist anwendbar, da BNT keine Wertpapiere sind.

Die Sammelklagen sind so etwas wie ein juristischer Alptraum, da viele außerhalb der USA ansässige Börsen und Token-Emittenten nach der Haager Konvention bedient werden müssen. Darüber hinaus gibt es in vielen Gerichtssälen immer noch Störungen, die durch die aktuelle Pandemie verursacht werden.

Tyler Winklevoss noemt het nieuwste stimuleringsvoorstel een advertentiecampagne voor Bitcoin

Mede-oprichter van Bitcoin Circuit crypto exchange Tyler Winklevoss is van mening dat het nieuwe White House-voorstel van 1,8 biljoen dollar stimuleringspakket een advertentiecampagne voor bitcoin is.

Tyler Winklevoss gelooft dat het nieuwe voorstel van het Witte Huis van 1,8 biljoen dollar stimuleringspakket een advertentiecampagne voor bitcoin is

Sinds de wereldwijde pandemie is begonnen, hebben veel landen over de hele wereld stimuleringspakketten aangekondigd om de economie nieuw leven in te blazen door kapitaal in de markt te injecteren. Volgens het Wall Street Journal- rapport bereidt het Witte Huis zich voor op een nieuw stimuleringsvoorstel van 1,8 biljoen dollar om de economie te helpen. Het injecteren van kapitaal in de markt wordt op de lange termijn niet als een goede zet beschouwd, omdat het het risico van hyperinflatie met zich meebrengt, waarbij de waarde van de valuta aanzienlijk devalueert. Tyler Winklevoss gelooft dat het nieuwste stimuleringsvoorstel bitcoin zou helpen.

Tyler Winklevoss noemt het stimuleringsvoorstel een advertentiecampagne voor bitcoin

De mede-oprichter van Gemini crypto-uitwisseling Tyler Winklevoss tweette dat het Witte Huis een nieuwe advertentiecampagne van 1,8 biljoen dollar voorstelt voor de toonaangevende cryptocurrency bitcoin. Winklevoss had eerder gewezen op de impact van enorme stimuleringspakketten op de economie en de Amerikaanse dollar. Het feit dat de federale bank dollars uit het niets kan drukken, bewijst het geval voor bitcoin. Er kan maar 21 miljoen bitcoin bestaan, terwijl de federale bank zoveel dollars kan drukken als ze willen.

Eerder dit jaar tweette Tyler Winklevoss dat de toonaangevende cryptocurrency bitcoin een veel betekenisvollere waarde heeft dan de Amerikaanse dollar

De ongekende druk van de Amerikaanse dollar door de Federal Reserve heeft ertoe geleid dat velen zich afvragen of de Amerikaanse dollar ongedeerd kan overleven. De implicaties zullen echter pas in jaren komen, aangezien de dollar nog steeds een aanzienlijke dominantie heeft. Verschillende experts zijn van mening dat de dollar al veel van zijn glans heeft verloren. Tyler Winklevoss had eerder gezegd dat bitcoin na de pandemie sterker dan ooit zal uitkomen. Op het moment van schrijven wordt bitcoin verhandeld tegen iets meer dan $ 11.300.

Square trasferisce 50 milioni di dollari di riserve aziendali a Bitcoin

Quest’anno l’adozione della crittografia monetaria da parte delle istituzioni è stata in crescita, con le aziende che hanno spostato un maggior numero di attività verso la crittografia. L’ultima azienda a saltare su questo treno è Square, il processore di pagamento diretto dal fondatore di Twitter Jack Dorsey.

Scommettere di più su Bitcoin

In data odierna, l’azienda della Silicon Valley ha annunciato di aver acquisito 4.709 BTC, per un valore di circa 50 milioni di dollari al momento della stampa. Descrivendo la mossa, Square ha spiegato la sua convinzione che le crittocittà sono uno strumento per l’empowerment economico che permette a tutti di partecipare a un sistema economico senza confini.

Considerando che l’azienda si concentra anche sul miglioramento dell’inclusione finanziaria, l’acquisto delle valute criptate era semplicemente in linea con esso. L’azienda ha aggiunto che i Immediate Edge acquistati rappresentavano circa l’uno per cento del suo patrimonio totale alla fine del secondo trimestre.

Square è stata una delle aziende che ha tratto immenso beneficio dal suo coinvolgimento con le crittocittà. L’azienda di servizi finanziari ha annunciato nel secondo trimestre che ha realizzato 875 milioni di dollari di entrate da Bitcoin trading su Cash App, la sua filiale specializzata in crittografia.

Le performance trimestrali hanno mostrato un aumento del 600 per cento dei ricavi e un aumento del 710 per cento del profitto lordo nello stesso periodo del 2019. Anche l’utile lordo è aumentato del 150 percento rispetto al primo trimestre dell’anno. Le attività legate alla Bitcoin hanno rappresentato circa il 2,85 per cento dell’intero profitto pross della società nel trimestre, che si è attestato a 597 milioni di dollari.

Tuttavia, il business Cash App Bitcoin ha anche assorbito 858 milioni di dollari di spese trimestrali, portando il profitto dell’intera divisione a 17 milioni di dollari. Anche gli utenti attivi della Cash App sono ora pari a 30 milioni.

La battaglia delle balene

L’azienda della Silicon Valley sta entrando a far parte di un ampio elenco di aziende per convertire parti significative del loro patrimonio in Bitcoin. Il più importante è stato il fornitore di soluzioni di business intelligence MicroStrategy.

Con sede in Virginia, MicroStrategy ha avuto un’ondata di acquisti nelle ultime settimane. A luglio, il gigante della tecnologia ha confermato in un comunicato stampa di aver convertito la sua base di asset primaria importanza in Bitcoin, acquistando 21.454 BTC per 250 milioni di dollari.

L’azienda ha detto alla Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) giorni dopo che avrebbe potuto acquistare ancora più asset, e ha mantenuto la promessa quando l’amministratore delegato Michael Saylor ha annunciato l’acquisto di altri 16.796 BTC per 175 milioni di dollari. Con circa 425 milioni di dollari ora in Bitcoin, MicroStrategy si è messa in un’ottima posizione per coprire con l’asset.

Tuttavia, il principale driver istituzionale rimane Grayscale Investments. Grayscale è la più grande società di gestione patrimoniale criptata a livello globale, con oltre 5 miliardi di dollari in gestione. Due settimane fa, i dati della società di crittoanalisi bybt.com hanno confermato di aver aggiunto altri 17.000 BTC alle proprie riserve, ad un prezzo di circa 186 milioni di dollari.

La scala di grigi detiene ora un totale di 449.900 monete in gestione, per un valore di circa 4,9 miliardi di dollari se si prende un BTC per un valore di 10.890 dollari. Questo significa effettivamente che la società detiene il 2,4% della capitalizzazione totale del mercato Bitcoin.

L’offerta totale di Bitcoins ha un tetto di 21 milioni di dollari. Con un’offerta circolante di 18,5 milioni, solo circa 2,5 milioni di gettoni BTC sono rimasti al mio. Anche se Grayscale smettesse oggi di acquistare, controllerebbe comunque circa il 2 per cento dell’offerta totale di BTC.
