CME Ethereum-futures går live, Bitcoin täcker sin bästa vecka någonsin: 5 saker att titta på denna vecka

Med sin bästa någonsin i slutet av veckan är Bitcoin inställd på att tävla med Ether och den nya „altseason“ för överhöghet den här veckan.

Bitcoin ( BTC ) tjurar verkar vara fast i förarsätet den här veckan eftersom den största kryptovalutan börjar på måndagen på nästan 40 000 dollar

Efter att ha klättrat igenom mycket av föregående veckas handel ökar BTC / USD nu med 15% jämfört med för sju dagar sedan – vad är det nästa?

Cointelegraph tittar på fem faktorer som kan påverka vart Bitcoin Code går de närmaste dagarna.

Lager slog rekord men dollar minskar

Bitcoins uppstigning före helgen åtföljdes av ett välbekant scenario på makromarknaderna.

Trots att coronavirus och dess nedfall fortsätter att förorsaka kaos på många ekonomier över hela världen, slog aktiemarknaderna nya rekordhöga toppar, med S&P 500 som avslutade sin största veckovinst sedan november förra året. Olja klättrade över $ 60 per fat för första gången på mer än ett år på måndag.

Stämningen påverkades av utsikterna till nya utgifter i USA när lagstiftarna såg att slutföra detaljerna i president Joe Bidens stimulanspaket på 1,9 biljoner dollar.

Som Bitcoin-förespråkare konsekvent har noterat sedan pandemin började och tidigare betyder mer utgifter mer pengar koncentrerade närmare regeringen och centralbanken – ett fenomen som kallas „cantillon-effekten“ – vilket banar väg för fortsatta interventioner på aktiemarknaderna områden.

Samtidigt har den amerikanska dollarn lidit under de senaste dagarna, en del av en pågående berättelse som säger att världens reservvaluta kommer att fortsätta att minska.

Det amerikanska dollarvalutaindexet (DXY) sjönk plötsligt under 91 på måndagen, vilket vänt upp den senaste tidens trend som började i mitten av januari

Trots blandade åsikter om stimulans verkar politiska källor vara fullständigt registrerade för att blåsa upp penningmängden som det enda alternativet.

”Jag är fortfarande bekymrad, som en medellång sikt, med sekulär stagnation, tror att finanspolitiken kommer att behöva vara mycket mer aktiv de kommande åren, och delar verkligen förvaltningens uppfattning att politiken borde vara väldigt mycket vid sidan av expansionen vid en stund som denna,”Lawrence Summers, chef ekonomisk rådgivare till Barack Obama, skrev i Washington Post på söndagen.

„Men den här typen av kvalitativa överväganden ger inte grund för att bedöma om 900 miljarder dollar i kortvarig stimulans bör följas omedelbart av en åtgärd på 1 biljoner, 1,9 biljoner eller 5 biljoner dollar, före en ultimat mått på miljontals offentliga investeringar.“

Mexico’s third richest man mentions Bitcoin in Twitter bio

Billionaires promote crypto: Mexico’s third richest man mentions Bitcoin in Twitter bio

Elon Musk continues to promote DOGE and Ricardo Salinas Pliego mentions Bitcoin in his Twitter bio.

Ricardo Salinas Pliego, the chairman of Grupo Salinas group and Mexico’s third richest man, is promoting Bitcoin on social media.

The billionaire, whose fortune is currently estimated at over US$13 billion, changed his Twitter bio over the weekend, adding the hashtag Bitcoin (BTC). Twitter users in the crypto space and ov Bitcoin Evolution some of Salina’s more than 840,000 followers reported the change on Saturday. That was around the time the crypto-asset’s price rose above US$40,000 for the first time in 23 days.

Speaking to Cointelegraph in December, Salinas revealed he had first bought Bitcoin in 2013 at $200 and later sold it during the 2017 bull run when the price rose to $17,000. The crypto asset was his „best investment ever“, he said.

In November, Salinas said he had invested 10 per cent of his „liquid portfolio“ in BTC, while the rest had been „invested in precious metals mines“. The 65-year-old billionaire bought in before the bitcoin price rose to new all-time highs in December and January and more than doubled his investment. He said he does not plan to sell for at least five years.

Salinas is not the only billionaire using social media to promote crypto

SpaceX and Tesla CEO Elon Musk has also re-promoted the cryptocurrency Dogecoin (DOGE). Musk in recent weeks targeted DOGE users. The token came in a pump-and-dump fueled by Reddit traders and investors. DOGE’s price has risen nearly 600 per cent in the last 30 days.

Jack Dorsey non è un fan dei nuovi regolamenti crittografici

Jack Dorsey , CEO di Square e Twitter, non è un fan delle normative in arrivo sulle criptovalute .

Jack Dorsey non è a favore delle nuove regole crittografiche

Ciò ha senso considerando che Square, una delle sue aziende, ha recentemente acquistato circa $ 50 milioni in bitcoin pochi mesi fa per diventare una delle prime imprese istituzionali a supportare apertamente bitcoin e detenere una quota così grande in esso. È probabile che Dorsey non voglia incassare un colpo per questo acquisto.

Tuttavia, in una lettera aperta al Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN), Dorsey sembra infrangere queste nuove regole dato che potenzialmente danneggiano la privacy delle persone e che alla fine renderebbero più difficile l’applicazione della legge finanziaria a lungo termine.

Le regole a cui si riferisce sono state inizialmente introdotte nel periodo natalizio . Propongono che chiunque sia impegnato in una transazione crittografica del valore di circa $ 3.000 o più avrebbe la propria identità, inclusi i nomi e gli indirizzi, sottoposta ai legislatori in modo da poter essere adeguatamente esaminata. L’idea è di garantire che non si verifichi alcun crimine crittografico e, se si verifica, ciò renderebbe potenzialmente più facile trovare e indagare.

Dorsey è contrario, affermando nella sua lettera:

Se la proposta venisse implementata come scritta, Square sarebbe tenuta a raccogliere dati inaffidabili sulle persone che non hanno aderito al nostro servizio o si sono registrate come clienti.

Ha inoltre spiegato che le regole fanno poco per fermare i crimini finanziari tradizionali e invece mirano inutilmente a coloro che sono coinvolti in transazioni crittografiche:

L’incongruenza tra il trattamento del contante e della criptovaluta secondo la proposta di FinCEN inibirà l’adozione della criptovaluta e invaderà la privacy delle persone … Se la madre di un cliente Square regala a sua figlia $ 4.000 in contanti fisici e la figlia deposita quei fondi in una banca, la banca avrebbe nessun obbligo di raccogliere informazioni sulla madre del cliente. Secondo la proposta, se questa stessa transazione fosse stata completata in criptovaluta, la banca avrebbe dovuto andare oltre la sua relazione con il cliente e intromettersi nelle informazioni private della madre affinché la figlia potesse depositare con successo e accedere liberamente al suo regalo.

Il vero problema qui nella mente di Dorsey è che invierebbe agenti delle forze dell’ordine a diversi inseguimenti di oche selvatiche per individui che non hanno fatto nulla di sbagliato, e teme che molte persone, come mezzo per impedire l’invasione della loro privacy, alla fine si rivolgeranno a canali non regolamentati per sfuggire al rilevamento, che potrebbero potenzialmente metterli in serio pericolo da altri criminali in futuro.

Le identità delle persone dovrebbero essere protette

Ha inoltre menzionato:

Anche se sarebbe assurdo per FinCEN imporre regolamenti che porterebbero a una minore visibilità sulle attività che cerca di monitorare, questo è esattamente ciò che farebbe la proposta … Come scritto, questi regolamenti porteranno solo a minare gli obiettivi dichiarati della proposta.

Blockchain Gaming: Sorare’s fantasy football game put to the test

What Panini means for football ticket collectors on an analogue level finds its digital counterpart in Sorare – based on blockchain technology.

We recently tested Sorarein the October issue of the Kryptokompass

From Juventus Turin’s Cristiano Ronaldo to Germany’s national player Jonathan Tah from Bayer Leverkusen: The Sorare fantasy football platform offers die-hard football fans the opportunity to trade their football idols as digital trading cards and to compete against each other in virtual teams.

In total, the platform has consistently made more than $ 1 million a month through sales of Bitcoin Billionaire collectibles.

Sorare Gameplay

The game principle is kept simple and is based on existing online manager games: The player acts as a manager who puts together a virtual team of five football players using their blockchain cards. A Sorare card is a digital collectible that represents a soccer player in a specific season. In addition, the team is classified after each match day based on the performance of its players on the real football field and rated with points.

The cards also differ in their performance and experience points and can generate bonus points. Similar to real game operations, there is a league and tournament system in which managers can take part with their teams.

These multi-billion dollar funds are betting big on Bitcoin – what if you could copy their strategy?

Once reserved for insiders, trading bots are gradually making their nests in a crypto market where volatility reigns supreme. Several studies confirm their growing use, and show that they outperform human trading.

This promotional article was written in collaboration with NapoleonX.

From the professional to the individual
When taking a position in a digital asset, two methods are regularly used by investment funds investing in cryptomoney: the qualitative and quantitative approach.

The latter, based on technical analysis, combines indicators such as the volatility of an asset and its past performance. Qualitative analysis is based on the project team, competitive advantages and other subjective information.

Investor trader trading
While a recently published study indicated that 48% of cryptos investment funds relied exclusively on the quantitative approach to take their positions. They do not use humans to generate trading operations. They make way for bots, ensuring greater flexibility and optimised decision-making.

While investment funds program their robots according to the profile of the clients they serve, individuals can now enjoy the same services. Napbots offers a wide range of trading techniques, automated by bots, that will adapt to your risk aversion.

The alt attribute of this image is empty, its filename is CTA-Napbots-bot-trading-crypto-automatise-1.png.
There are currently 7 trading pairs available on Napbots. Scattered within a catalogue of predefined strategies, traders will be able to automate their operations via Binance, Kraken or Bitmex (8 trading platforms in total).

Superior performance
In December 2019, a study had fully validated the choice of using trading bots. Indeed, after analysing more than 76,000 research reports, comparing trading performance between humans and robots over a 15-year period. The latter had obtained results that were 5% higher than their human counterparts.

There are several techniques commonly used to operate a trading robot:

„Crypto Scalping“: unlike human trading, which is limited to managing an entry and exit position, bots will execute a multitude of trades in a short period of time.
„Crypto Trend Following“ . Largely used by CTA funds, this strategy consists of establishing a position based on the upward or downward trends of a market.

This is the case of the NapoX BTC Funding AR, a strategy present on Napbots, which has generated an annual return of 572%. Optimised for BTC trading, with a „by the hour“ time trading profile, this technique enables the investor to take advantage of a volatile trading environment. Its resilience is impressive, with a „Max Drawdown“ of -19%.

Because yes, the interest of a Trading bot is indeed there. It makes it possible to control a highly volatile market, often in contradiction with human emotions. The trading frequency with which Napbots operates makes it possible to safeguard one’s capital in the event of a sudden drop, and to regularly generate small profits as the day progresses, in order to reach a positive balance.

While Bitcoin has just hit the $16,000 mark, the end of 2020 and the year 2021 promise to be exciting. Many traders will try to profit awkwardly from price swings, while Napbots users will be able to maximize their chances of taming volatility by relying on automated strategies that have

PayPal looking for crypto companies with BitGo in sight

IN BRIEF

  • PayPal would consider acquiring crypto companies, including the BitGo crypto custodian.
  • PayPal has recently added support for cryptography, causing the price of Bitcoin to soar.
  • The integration of BitGo has the potential to satisfy critics.

After its initial purchases of cryptography, PayPal would consider acquiring crypto companies. A possible acquisition could be the BitGo depository, a major player in the digital currency space.

According to Bloomberg, PayPal Holdings is in discussions to acquire BitGo, a digital currency „depositary“ company. BitGo helps customers securely store large amounts of cryptography. BitGo also provides up to $100 million in insurance to customers, backed by the major insurer Lloyds of London.

The acquisition would be a significant expansion of PayPal’s foray into crypto bull, especially after the green light for crypto purchases on 21 October. According to Bloomberg, other companies could also be in the mix. PayPal is also considering partnering with the Paxos Trust Company, a regulated crypto provider.

According to sources who wished to remain anonymous and quoted by Bloomberg, PayPal and BitGo could reach an agreement within a few weeks. One source noted that this was not a sure thing, and PayPal could go and explore other acquisitions.

A major player in the firing line

BitGo is a successful company in the field of crypto. In 2018, the custodian has raised approximately $58 million and currently serves customers such as the central funding company Nexo. The company has positioned itself as a security solution for institutional investors, making it an attractive choice for large regulated companies such as PayPal.

No less attractive is the fact that the company’s security is based on „cold storage“ portfolios, meaning that account keys only exist offline. They also use several offline signature portfolios that are more difficult to hack into.

A big gamble for Paypal

After the announcement that customers can buy, sell and hold digital currencies, Paypal’s share price reached unprecedented highs (and then returned the next day).

PayPal shares rose and recovered after the announcement of digital currency support: TradingView
PayPal now authorises services for several cryptosystems, including Bitcoin, Ether, Bitcoin Cash and Litecoin. Users can use their virtual currencies to make purchases from 26 million suppliers. In recent years, the lack of convenience to pay with encrypted currencies seemed to be a major obstacle to widespread adoption. In the wake of the news, Bitcoin surpassed $13,000 for the first time in over a year.

However, not everyone was pleased with the positive news from PayPal. Some saw it as another intermediary between users and their crypto. Others pointed out that PayPal does not currently allow crypto to be transferred off the PayPal site to private wallets and does not give private keys to users. The old adage, „not your keys, not your crypto“, warns of the danger of this configuration.

Fortunately, the acquisition of BitGo by PayPal, if it materializes, could be very positive news for opponents. BitGo’s guard services could be integrated with PayPal to some extent. This could theoretically ensure crypto on PayPal and make the payment company feel secure enough to allow transfers and delivery of private keys.

Meanwhile, news of large companies diving into the crypto space, such as those buying bitcoins, continues to rise.

MetaMask, the ogre of cryptocurrencies exceeds 1 million monthly users

MetaMask asserts its power – The MetaMask wallet is a benchmark in the Ethereum ecosystem. Thanks to the recent boom in DeFi, it has seen its user curve take off to the moon . MetaMask even plans to go further by integrating swaps.

1 million users

MetaMask is a cross-platform Bitcoin Up wallet , running on browser and mobile. This allows its users to interact with Ethereum, hence its name of Web3 wallet.

In a publication dated October 5, the head of Marketing and Products at ConsenSys , Talia Knowles-Rivas , announced that Metamask had surpassed the million users .

Thus, in the space of a year, MetaMask saw its number of users increase by 400% , starting from 264,000.

As explained in the publication, this increase is mainly due to the boom in decentralized finance . Indeed, Metamask is one of the most popular connection methods on DeFi platforms.

“The growth of MetaMask users occurs through a feedback loop. […] Users arrive to use a site and end up discovering hundreds of other sites, from decentralized finance to games to new communities. “ – Talia Knowles-Rivas

This development can also be explained by the launch of MetaMask Mobile at the beginning of September on iOS and Android.

MetaMask Swap: DEX in one click

As good news never comes alone, MetaMask is preparing a major update. Consensys today announced the launch of MetaMask Swap .

“A feature to compare and exchange tokens directly in MetaMask. “

Initially available on Firefox, it will be deployed soon on other browsers and on mobile.

Under the hood, MetaMask Swap connects to major decentralized trading platforms , such as Uniswap or Airswap , as well as various DEX aggregators that will allow you to trade the new trendy DeFi cryptocurrency .

In its announcement, MetaMask details the different aspects that make MetaMask Swap a solution of choice. This will allow you to obtain the best market rate and the lowest gas costs thanks to its multiple connections.

“Users no longer need to approve every token across multiple aggregators. With MetaMask, users only approve each token once, reducing gas costs and simplifying the approval process. »- MetaMask publication on gas reduction

Bitcoin forks and other crypts to be awarded by Bitfinex

According to Paolo Ardoino, CTO of the cryptomoney exchange firm Bitfinex, they will initiate a reward plan. All those users holding cryptosystems such as Cryptosoft review, Ethereum and XRP will benefit from this new strategy of attracting the exchange.

In this sense, the information shows that those who keep Bitcoin and ETH in the exchange, will receive a 6.2% annual return. With this modality, Bitfinex service users will be able to obtain passive income.

Likewise, a third digital currency also enters the annual performance benefit plan (APY). This is the XRP, of which, its users will receive 4.91% for keeping their funds in Bitfinex with this crypto currency.
Long-term Bitcoin holders will benefit the most

It should be noted that the lending platform of the aforementioned exchange has more than $1 billion USD. This amount is distributed among its more than 150 thousand users.

All this room for maneuver allows them to offer more stimuli to customers to stay and, at the same time, attract others. Consequently, Bitfinex is looking for large Bitcoin or Ethereum (whale) forks to increase its capital.

„We hope that this offer will be attractive to customers who have bought Bitcoin as a long-term value store and who also want to earn from their assets while holding them,“ explained Ardoino, quoted on the news portal CoinTelegraph.

Another important aspect of this fact is that the delivery of benefits for Bitcoin holders and other crypto currencies is done through a partnership with the firm Celsius Network.
Bitfinex CTO Paolo Ardoino offered details about the benefits for holders of Bitcoin and other cryptomontages.Bitfinex CTO Paolo Ardoino offered details about the benefits for holders of Bitcoin and other cryptomontages.

On-Fire Week in Crypto: The Highlights

Like a bank, but better

Highlighting another feat of this APY strategy, Ardoino explains that in this strategy, the benefits are more favorable than in banks in terms of rates. In this area, the exchange of crypto-currencies is equal to and in many cases exceeds the banks themselves.

This last point is of great importance to highlight, because the most popular banks generate interest rates that rarely go beyond 3%. The preference of investors in financial institutions lies in the mistrust that is related to the volatility of crypto currencies.

In that sense, nervousness is one of the factors that define the balance against digital currencies. As Bitcoin consolidates, account holders like Bitfinex will have less to worry about.

At the same time, the fact stands out that, throughout its history, the price of the main krypton currency has had an upward trend and everything indicates that it will continue. This means that many of the concerns of some traditional investors may be unfounded.
100 million new users

The other partner in this strategy of benefits for cryptomoney holders such as Bitcoin, Ethereum and XRP, Celsius Network, explains his firm’s plan. In the words of Alex Mashinsky, CEO of the latter company, the goal is to attract 100 million new users to its platform.

The total APY that its clients can earn is 15.89% among 12 different tokens offered. It should be remembered that Celsius is one of the fastest growing loan crypt companies.

Despite the promise of this project, Bitfinex is famous for the hacking it suffered during the year 2016 and which is still unsolved to date. The firm’s attempts to recover the stolen funds have been in vain.

NYAG asks Bitfinex and Tether to comply

A difficult stain to erase

The most recent episode of this famous $1.3 billion robbery in 2016 was a reward offered by Bitfinex. Last August, according to the firm, it offered $400 million to the criminals to return the funds to the users.

The platform was robbed of 119,755 Bitcoins, of which only 27 BTCs have been recovered with the help of US authorities. The rest of the amount remains elusive for the platform and is divided between different portfolios.

The reward percentages for the hackers amount to 25% of the amount they extracted. At the same time, 5% of the amount is offered to people who help drive the criminals.

This is a strategy that seems to be driven by desperation on the part of Bitfinex, as hackers would have a lot to lose if they came forward to negotiate.
Facts to keep in mind

Bitcoin zal Morph Van Raketschip naar Cruiseliner, zegt Macro-investeringsgoeroe Raoul Pal

Real Vision CEO en voormalig Goldman Sachs manager Raoul Pal legt uit waarom hij meer dan de helft van zijn portefeuille naar Bitcoin heeft verplaatst.

In een nieuw interview met The Breakdown podcast host Nathaniel Whittemore, zegt Pal dat hij gelooft dat Bitcoin nu de belangrijkste reserve op aarde is, ondanks de hoge mate van volatiliteit.

„Ik ben nu gewoon vast van mening dat [Bitcoin] ’s werelds grootste reserve bezit is. Ja, daar hebben we nu te veel volatiliteit voor, maar ik kan het niet kwalijk nemen. Het werkt niet voor een heleboel dingen of het zou kunnen, maar het is waarschijnlijk niet goed genoeg en misschien is dat niet zijn rol. Maar, als basis voor alles? Het heeft een verdomd goede kans. Ik zie niets dat aan de horizon komt of dat al bestaat dat een kans heeft.“

Wat betreft de waarde van de winkel, zegt Pal dat een gesprek met MicroStrategy Chief Executive Michael Saylor zijn ogen opende over waarom Bitcoin superieur is aan goud.

„Als je kijkt naar het aanbod van goud, is het 2% per jaar, dus ze devalueren het goud met 2% per jaar, omdat de vraag het aanbod niet compenseert… en als je dat samenvoegt is het in feite de inflatie, dus als je dat samenvoegt, verlies je eigenlijk koopkracht.

Ik heb alles bekeken in vergelijking met de top vier van de balansen van de centrale bank in termen van groeipercentages. Goud deed het goed. Het presteerde onder de 50% van de balans. Het enige bedrijfsmiddel ter wereld dat daadwerkelijk beter presteerde dan de G4-balans is Bitcoin. Het is de enige.

Pal zegt dat hij gelooft dat Bitcoin in het beginstadium is van een nieuwe stierenloop en uiteindelijk denkt hij dat de prijs van een BTC $1.000.000 kan bereiken. Hij zegt dat de volatiliteit van Bitcoin uiteindelijk zal afnemen naarmate de marktkapitalisatie groeit en de instellingen een legale manier vinden om de ruimte te betreden.

„Bitcoin was uniek. Het begon als een terreinverruiming. Het kwam van individuen. Niets anders is zo gekomen. En nu moeten we in de instellingen komen. De instellingen zullen de prijs in de gaten houden, maar tenzij het een aangename aanwinst voor hen is – d.w.z. ze kunnen het opslaan, ze kunnen het waarderen, ze kunnen het op hun rekeningen zetten – ze gaan niets doen…

Maar het is het eigenlijke marktplafond van het activum zelf dat hen uiteindelijk zal aandrijven, niet de prestaties. Want vergeet niet, we hebben het gezien met de hedgefondsindustrie en al het andere, hoe meer deze jongens zich opstapelen, in de loop van de tijd, de volatiliteit dempt omdat er veel meer grotere kopers en verkopers zijn en uiteindelijk de prijsstructuur van de hele industrie verandert. Dat is prima. Bitcoin zal veranderen van een raketschip in een cruiseliner. En het moet gebeuren. Maar nu nog niet. We willen dat graag doen tegen een hogere prijs, alsjeblieft.“

Op de vraag wat er nodig is om hem zijn „onverantwoordelijke lange“ positie in Bitcoin te laten verlagen, wees Pal op de opkomst van de opkomende markten als het enige dat hem op andere gedachten kon brengen.

„Als de dollar daalt, kunnen het de opkomende markten zijn. Dat is het enige wat ik kon zien dat kon concurreren om mijn kapitaal voor Bitcoin over een tijdshorizon van drie jaar“.
