Setembro 2016 Tudo de novo: Número de baleias Bitcoin Shatters registrou recordes após o recente comício de preços

O Bitcoin tem sido pego em uma tendência de alta constante nas últimas semanas que lhe permitiu cortar sua correlação com os mercados financeiros tradicionais. De fato, a pouco menos de US$ 13.100, a principal moeda criptográfica Bitcoin Formula do navio-estandarte publicou seu segundo fechamento semanal mais alto desde o início de 2018, no domingo.

Como o preço do bitcoin subiu, o número de baleias também. De acordo com dados do fornecedor de análises na cadeia Glassnode, a população de baleias BTC atingiu um novo recorde ontem. O número de endereços com pelo menos 1.000 BTC saltou para 2.231 – o nível mais alto visto desde setembro de 2016.

Somente na última semana, o número de baleias BTC aumentou em 2,6%. Da mesma forma, o preço da moeda criptográfica mais valiosa do mundo aumentou em cerca de 14%. O ímpeto ascendente foi impulsionado ainda mais pelo anúncio do PayPal sobre o próximo suporte de bitcoin.

Por que a população de baleias BTC está crescendo?

Na comunidade criptográfica, o termo baleia é usado para descrever investidores com participações significativas no BTC e que têm a capacidade de mover o mercado em qualquer direção. Desde o início deste ano, este grupo particular de investidores cresceu mais de 14%.

O analista da cadeia Willy Woo sugeriu que o aumento no número de endereços de baleias poderia ser resultado de indivíduos e fundos de alto valor líquido verem o bitcoin como um hedge potencial contra a impressão expansiva de dinheiro e apostarem no ativo com dinheiro real.

De fato, múltiplas empresas de capital aberto e grandes investidores individuais revelaram investimentos na moeda criptográfica do país nos últimos meses. O veterano de Wall Street Paul Tudor Jones foi o primeiro a revelar publicamente seu investimento no BTC em maio. Desde então, várias empresas têm colocado seu peso por trás da moeda criptográfica e parece que esta tendência está apenas começando.

Das nächste Upgrade von Bitcoin wird Tor V3-Adressen unterstützen

Die nächste Version von Bitcoin Core wird die V3-Adressen des Tor-Netzwerks unterstützen.

Tor V3-Adressen bieten stärkere Kryptographie und verbesserte Sicherheit.

Die alten V2-Adressen werden am 15. Oktober 2021 veraltet sein.

Die nächste Version von Bitcoin Investor wird die neuesten V3-Adressen von Tor Network unterstützen – das wird nächstes Jahr vollständig zum neuen Standard werden – so Pieter Wuille, ein Mitbegründer und ehemaliger Ingenieur bei Blockstream.

Der Bitcoin Improvement Proposal (BIP) 155, der Details der Tor-Unterstützung enthält, wurde in die aktuelle Bitcoin-Referenzimplementierung eingebunden. Er wird in die Bitcoin Core-Version 0.21 verschoben.

Das Tor-Netzwerk basiert auf Open-Source-Software und ermöglicht anonyme Kommunikation über das Internet. Im Juli kündigten die Entwickler an, dass die V2-Adressen des Netzwerks – die bereits seit über einem Jahrzehnt in Gebrauch sind – am 15. Oktober 2021 „pensioniert“ werden. Sie werden durch die neuen V3-Adressen ersetzt, die sich seit 2015 in der Entwicklung befinden.

„Mit der Entwicklung des Verständnisses der Menschheit von Mathematik und Kryptographie wurde das Fundament der Version 2 brüchig und zu diesem Zeitpunkt unsicher“, hieß es in der Ankündigung und fügte hinzu: „Im Jahr 2015 führte eine groß angelegte Entwicklungsarbeit, die sich über drei Jahre erstreckte, zur Version 3.

Die Adressen der Version 3 fügen im Vergleich zu den aktuellen Adressen einige wesentliche Verbesserungen hinzu. Sie verwenden eine stärkere Form der Kryptographie, lassen weniger Informationen an jeden, der das Netzwerk überwacht, durchsickern und erhöhen die Sicherheit.

Tor-Datenschutz-Browser.

Obwohl jeder einzelne Server im Tor-Netzwerk heute V3-Adressen unterstützt, sind sie nicht „der einzige Standard“ – noch nicht. Bis 2020 und 2021 wird das Netzwerk vollständig auf die neueste Version migrieren, während V2 nach und nach veraltet sein wird. Schließlich planen die Entwickler für den 15. Oktober 2021 die Veröffentlichung neuer Tor-Clients, die V2 komplett deaktivieren werden.

Laut Wuille wird Bitcoin Core v0.21 viel früher als der Termin von Tor veröffentlicht werden, „wahrscheinlich im Dezember“ dieses Jahres. Abgesehen von V3-Adressen wird die neue Software von Bitcoin auch eine Funktion namens „Gossiping“ unterstützen, die es versteckten Knoten erlaubt, andere Knoten zu finden, mit denen sie sich verbinden können.

Bitcoin Core wechselt zu Dark Web, um der Zensur zu widerstehen

Gossiping erlaubt es einem Knoten, „anderen Knoten zu sagen ‚Hey, ich weiß von diesem coolen versteckten Tor V3-Dienst, der einen Bitcoin-Knoten betreibt! Wenn Sie jemals den Bedarf haben, sich mit einem anderen Knoten zu verbinden, sollten Sie sich das vielleicht merken“, erklärte Wuille.

Wie Decrypt berichtete, wurde die Website von Bitcoin Core im März als versteckter Tor-Dienst über eine Zwiebeladresse erreichbar, wodurch ein weiteres Mittel der Zensurresistenz hinzugefügt wurde, das sich nicht auf Zertifizierungsstellen oder DNS-Infrastruktur stützt.

Bitcoin balance on stock exchanges at its lowest point in almost 2 years, what does this mean?

The number of bitcoin in wallets of crypto exchanges is at its lowest point since November 2018. This is shown by data from blockchain analysis agency Glassnode. But what does this data actually say?

Less and less bitcoin on exchanges
On 11 February this year, the number of bitcoins on stock exchanges was at its highest ever level, when exchanges together held 2.97 million bitcoins. Then the road started down. Since then, the number of bitcoins on stock exchanges has fallen by more than 13% to 2.57 million bitcoins, the lowest point in almost two years.

Investors prefer to hold on to bitcoins themselves

The first explanation is that bitcoin investors prefer to hold their own bitcoins. This can be done safely, for example, with a hardware wallet, a physical device with which you can manage your private keys.

The assumption is that investors have more confidence in the future of bitcoin, and that they do not see any benefit in constantly trading on cryptocurrency exchanges.

Or is it because of DeFi?
What can also help is that more and more bitcoins are fixed on the bitcoin blockchain and released as tokens on other blockchains. According to data from Dune Analytics there are now 92,583 bitcoins Crypto Investor packaged as ERC-20 tokens. This is a tenfold increase in the number of tokened bitcoins in July.

The graph below shows the rapid increase in the number of bitcoins packaged as ERC-20 tokens. Lord and master is still wrapped bitcoin (wBTC), which we wrote about earlier in this article.

The number of bitcoins on the Ren blockchain (renBTC) has also increased from 1,161 renBTC to 23,200 renBTC in just under three months.

BitMEX caused further outflow
The two reasons in this article are assumptions, it always remains guesswork why the number of bitcoins on stock exchanges continues to fall. However, many bitcoins have withdrawn from the BitMEX wallet in recent days. According to Decrypt, investors have withdrawn a total of more than 22,300 bitcoins, one of the largest ‚exchange‘ runs in the history of. bitcoin.

Central Bank of Estonia conducts study on its own digital currency

The next European Central Bank is working on its own digital currency.

Eesti Pank, the Central Bank of Estonia, has announced that it will carry out a study on the development of an infrastructure for digital currencies.

According to the announcement, Eesti Pank has joined forces with the technology companies SW7 Group and Guardtime for this purpose. Their common goal is to investigate whether a so-called Keyless Signature Infrastructure (KSI) based on block chain technology can serve as a platform for a dedicated digital currency. Estonia already uses the KSI block Bitcoin Pro chain technology for e-government services. In this context, the research project will also investigate new payment methods that are opened up „through the use of electronic IDs and other e-government services“.

The project does not specify which specific technologies should be used for this purpose.

The duration of the research project is two years, divided into several phases. In the first phase, it will first of all examine what a scalable, practical and secure platform for digital currencies should look like, whereby the criteria of speed, security, data protection and resistance play a decisive role.

Rainer Olt, Director for Payment Systems at the Central Bank, explains:

„As a small central bank, Eesti Pank has to consider very carefully in which European projects it is heavily involved. In recent years, Estonia has gained unique know-how by operating a secure, privacy-conscious and efficient e-government system. The unique expertise of our country is a good foundation for launching a project with the technology companies SW7 and Guardtime to explore technical possibilities. The latter company is a long-term cooperation partner of Estonia and one of the best in the field of block chain technology“.
The Central Bank emphasises that it is constantly striving to optimise the financial infrastructure and payment system in order to keep pace with technological progress and meet the needs of the population as best as possible.

Estonia continues to rely on block-chain technology, although the e-government programme has recently come under criticism for some fraudulent activities.

Christine Lagarde, head of the European Central Bank (ECB), made it clear last month that the eventual introduction of central bank digital currencies does not mean that fiat currencies will be abolished altogether.

Bitcoin has set a new record over $10,000.

In fact it has exceeded 62 consecutive days always constantly above this quota.

The previous record was obviously set during the speculative bubble at the end of 2017, since on November 30, 2017 the price of BTC rose for the first time above $10,000 and remained there for 61 days, until January 30, 2018.

Since then it had never happened again that it was constantly above this figure for so many consecutive days, since for example in mid 2019 it exceeded the $10,000 threshold four times, but always returning below this threshold within 30 days at most.

The longest ever streak of consecutive days above $10,000 began on July 28, 2020, and is still ongoing, after 62 days.
Bitcoin above $10,000: not another speculative bubble

Moreover, while the previous record strip was recorded in a period of clear speculative bubble, with the price passed in less than 30 days from $8,000 to $20,000, and then returned to $6,000 in less than 60 days, at this stage there seems to be no speculative bubble.

For example, at the beginning of the year, the price had already risen to over $10,000 and then fell due to the collapse of the financial markets in March.

However, already in the days before the halving, at the beginning of May, BTC had almost recovered this threshold, and then it went down again at the beginning of June to just over $9,000.

In other words, throughout the course of 2020, it seems that BTC’s price has been aiming at $10,000, and has fallen heavily below this figure only because of the collapse of global financial markets due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Therefore, the 62 consecutive days above this threshold seem to be an absolutely organic result, not forced by single short-term events.

Moreover, during this period the maximum price reached was just over $12,000, without any worrying speculative bubble being triggered.

It remains to be seen whether bitcoin will be able to stay in this price zone for a long time yet, now that it has set this new record.

Le yuan numérique est testé dans les paiements à crédit

Selon 8BTC, la banque centrale chinoise teste un analogue numérique du yuan (DCEP) pour les paiements par carte de crédit, qui pourrait permettre d’augmenter le nombre de nouveaux utilisateurs.

À cet égard, la Chine a élargi sa zone de libre-échange expérimentale, en ajoutant trois autres régions à la province du Zhejiang.

Les zones de libre-échange feront partie d’un système de financement du commerce de type bloc basé sur la plateforme DLT de financement du commerce de la Banque centrale de Chine (CBC).

En outre, trois grands projets d’innovation test ont été annoncés : un projet pilote national sur le reporting numérique des crédits pour les petites et micro-entreprises, et la supervision des innovations en matière de monnaie numérique et de technologie financière.

En outre, l’Institut de recherche sur les devises numériques de l’usine de pâte et papier s’est associé à JD Digits, une société de commerce sur Internet, pour travailler à la promotion d’une plateforme technologique DLT basée sur le yuan numérique (DCEP) et de projets pilotes liés aux paiements DCEP en ligne et hors ligne.

Les projets pilotes impliqueront des paiements numériques pour réapprovisionner les cartes de crédit de transport, et commenceront par les régions où les petits paiements sont utilisés.

Selon China Banking News, la Banque centrale nationale a annoncé il y a quelques jours qu’elle avait terminé tous les préparatifs nécessaires à l’émission de sa monnaie numérique, également connue sous le nom de DCEP ou CBDC (Central Bank Digital Currency). Un article à ce sujet a été publié le 19 septembre.

YouHodler: a secure and sustainable alternative to decentralized finance

Who says better ? – Decentralized finance, although promising, brings up the specter of a bubble that all cryptocurrency enthusiasts would like to forget about. Is it really possible to maintain interest rates above 40% for some stablecoins over the long term ? The fear of becoming the collateral victim of a future crack is now giving new life to certain centralized platforms.

Offering a more viable economic model, they place security at the heart of strategic issues, and offer much more advantageous interest rates than traditional finance.

This is a promotional article written in conjunction with YouHodler.

DeFi: fear of heights

Far from the unaudited protocols that flourish within Bitcoin Loophole, YouHodler is a platform that could not be more regulated. It was built in Switzerland, in full compliance with local legislation.

Up to 12% interest on your cryptocurrencies with YouHodler

The great figures of decentralized finance like Andre Cronje affirm it: the fact of being technically limited and of granting blind trust in DeFi protocols to make your money grow is “close to irresponsibility” .

Indeed, despite the apparent security of certain protocols, the experimental aspect of decentralized finance should not be neglected. Moderate confidence must be given to certain source codes , which are still in the test phase, and yet made available to the general public.

Most people think of protocol auditing as the ultimate validation of a source code. However, the adventures related to Bzrx and its third successive hack should serve as lessons. No ! Auditing is not the magic bulwark against failures. Many bugs can creep into protocols and endanger invested funds.

YouHodler stands out as a powerful alternative, for those wishing to benefit from attractive interest and loan conditions, in a completely secure environment.

YouHodler version crypto loans

Memories of 2015 and 2016 haunt people. Many individuals who have accumulated a substantial amount of cryptocurrency of all kinds had to part with it to meet an urgent financial need.

The year 2017 made them regret this decision forever. As Bitcoin broke through the $ 19,000 mark during anepic bullrun , several hasty sellers missed the opportunity of a lifetime. Do you think the situation will be different this time around?

Alarming macroeconomic factors and the surrounding uncertainty make Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies potentially invaluable safe havens. YouHodler therefore proposes never to touch this “future jackpot” , and to borrow good old FIAT currency, with only your precious cryptocurrencies as collateral.

YouHodler makes it possible to borrow an amount equivalent to 90% of the value of your cryptocurrencies. This proportion of loans is calculated according to the time limit during which you want to repay your loan. The shorter the borrowing period, the more attractive the interest rate will be (only 5% for a period of less than 30 days).

In addition to attractive rates, security has been placed at the heart of the corporate strategy. In June 2020, the platform signed a partnership with Ledger to secure the assets of its clients within the Ledger Vault .

Crypto savings of up to 12%

Many cryptocurrency enthusiasts would do anything to accumulate a larger number of bitcoins, ethers, and other major currencies. Opportunities are indeed omnipresent in the market, with new tokens issued on a daily basis, being able to see their value multiply by 5 in the space of a few hours.

In the long term, the winners are rarer. Your success in the cryptocurrency market is often conditioned by your position on the information scale . Do you have a strong and competent network in the industry? The distilled information can therefore be used to increase your capital.

If this is not your case, a conservative strategy can be a great way to increase your income.

Con l’inflazione di nuovo in aumento, Bitcoin potrebbe esplodere presto

Molte persone vedono il bitcoin come una potenziale copertura contro l’inflazione, ma ultimamente questo sentimento sta crescendo, in gran parte a causa di Jerome Powell, capo della Fed.

Bitcoin potrebbe potenzialmente aumentare nelle prossime settimane

In qualità di presidente della Federal Reserve statunitense, Powell parlerà questa settimana alla conferenza annuale di Jackson Hole nel Wyoming. Ci si aspetta che egli stabilisca la legge e instilli un nuovo insieme di regole e regolamenti che potenzialmente porterà l’inflazione negli Stati Uniti ancora più alta. Tra queste misure ci saranno modi più „rilassati“ di „gestire le pressioni sui prezzi“, che si prevede – secondo le autorità di regolamentazione finanziaria – di riportare l’inflazione a un livello relativamente normale in un secondo momento.

Nel frattempo, la Fed ha annunciato che permetterà all’inflazione di salire per un breve periodo al di sopra della media del due per cento. Molti temono che ciò si ritorcerà contro, e che i metodi progettati per affrontare l’inflazione arrivino nel momento sbagliato, dato che il coronavirus sta ancora dilagando. Mati Greenspan – fondatore di Quantum Economics ed ex analista presso la crypto exchange e-Toro – ha spiegato:

Soprattutto in questo momento, per la Fed annunciare che sta per svalutare attivamente il denaro nei conti della gente non sembra una grande idea. Così com’è, con tutti gli stimoli in corso, la gente sta già mettendo in discussione il valore del denaro. La Fed sta fondamentalmente giocando con il fuoco.

La fama di Meltem Demirors of Coin Shares ha avuto un sentimento simile, spiegando che mentre beni come le azioni stanno salendo alle stelle, questo è un segnale enorme che il dollaro si è ridotto di valore, e quindi l’aumento dei prezzi dei beni non è sempre il modo migliore per determinare come sta andando l’economia. Meltem dice:

Mentre la gente celebra il mercato azionario e i valori immobiliari sono ai massimi storici, quello che non riconosce è che non si tratta di beni che valgono di più, ma di dollari che valgono meno.

Matthew Dibb, co-fondatore di Stack – un fornitore di fondi indicizzati in Asia – ritiene che le valute crittografiche aumenteranno ancora di più se si considera la debolezza del dollaro negli ultimi mesi. Bitcoin System, ad esempio, è già salito di oltre il 60% dall’inizio dell’anno, ed è fiducioso che questo potrebbe essere l’inizio di qualcosa di molto più grande per la valuta digitale numero uno al mondo per limite di mercato.

Dibb afferma:

L’impatto maggiore per il cripto da questo simposio sarebbe un cambiamento nella politica monetaria e un ulteriore deprezzamento del dollaro americano, che potrebbe spingere il bitcoin più in alto.

Inviare l’inflazione a livelli record

Nigel Green del gruppo di consulenza finanziaria deVere ha offerto i suoi due centesimi e menzionato:

La stampa di somme storiche di denaro per elicotteri che sono state spinte nel sistema finanziario ha svalutato il dollaro e ha suscitato timori di inflazione. Non si può semplicemente stampare bitcoin. Con l’aumentare dell’incertezza, gli investitori si ammasseranno in beni rifugio, in particolare quelli non legati a un paese specifico come il bitcoin e l’oro.

Un avocat condamné à payer 5,2 millions de dollars pour avoir libéré des fonds Bitcoin de l’entiercement

Un avocat de New York a été condamné à payer plus de 5 millions de dollars à une société d’investissement cryptographique après avoir libéré prématurément la plupart de ses fonds destinés à acheter Bitcoin Future.

Un juge fédéral a statué qu’un avocat de New York est responsable du remboursement d’une société d’investissement cryptographique après avoir libéré prématurément des fonds séquestres réservés pour l’achat de 5 millions de dollars en Bitcoin

Selon un rapport du 13 août sur Law360, la juge de district américaine Alison J.Nathan a confirmé que l’avocat Aaron Etra était en train de payer 4,6 millions de dollars à la société d’investissement basée à San Francisco Benthos Master Fund. Le jugement total était de 5,255 millions de dollars, plus les intérêts courus.

La décision intervient après qu’Etra n’a pas présenté de date d’audience en avril à New York confirmant une session d’arbitrage et la session elle-même à la Cour internationale d’arbitrage de la Chambre de commerce internationale à La Haye. Les absences ont joué un rôle déterminant dans la décision du juge en faveur de la société d’investissement crypto.

«Il n’a que lui-même à blâmer», a déclaré le juge Nathan. «L’intimé n’a pas comparu ni présenté de preuve malgré la réception de l’avis d’arbitrage et malgré le fait qu’il était clairement tenu d’arbitrer tout différend en vertu du contrat d’entiercement.»

L’affaire sur le Bitcoin perdu

L’accord en question date de 2018, lorsque Benthos a contacté Etra pour qu’il agisse en tant qu’agent d’entiercement pour les achats de Bitcoin ( BTC ) de l’entreprise. Les deux ont signé un accord – appelé à juste titre l’accord Bitcoin – avec Valkyrie Group, une entreprise chargée de trouver des tiers intéressés par la vente de leurs avoirs cryptographiques.

Initialement, Benthos avait l’intention d’acheter 5 millions de dollars en BTC – environ 10000 pièces à l’époque – et a déposé ce montant dans le fonds séquestre. Sans voir l’approbation de Benthos, Etra a transféré 4,6 millions de dollars du fonds total Bitcoin hors séquestre sur deux transactions en août 2018, ce qui n’a jamais abouti à l’envoi d’actifs cryptographiques à l’entreprise.

Après plusieurs requêtes de Benthos demandant essentiellement à Etra de cesser de retirer de l’argent du fonds et de rendre compte de ce qui est arrivé aux 4,6 millions de dollars, un tribunal a statué que l’avocat devait produire tous les documents et informations liés aux fonds manquants. Etra a rendu les 400000 dollars restants et a produit des enregistrements de ses communications avec les vendeurs de Bitcoin, de sorte que les précédentes requêtes de Benthos pour sanctionner l’avocat et le trouver pour outrage au tribunal ont été rejetées.

Le jugement porte sur un total de 5,2 millions de dollars plus les intérêts. Cela peut être une bénédiction cachée pour Etra, qui aurait pu être responsable de 108 millions de dollars – qui est la valeur actuelle du BTC en fiat, si la vente avait eu lieu à l’époque.

Flash Crash: Slajdy cenowe Bitcoinów o $1.4K w minutach

Flash Crash: Slajdy cenowe Bitcoin Trader o $1.4K w minutach
W niedzielę cena Bitcoina spadła o 1.458 dolarów w ciągu niecałej godziny. Nagły poślizg zaskoczył wielu handlowców, wymuszając znaczną presję na rynku.

Największa krypto waluta pod względem wartości rynkowej spadła z 11.969 dolarów do 10.659 dolarów w ciągu 10 minut do 04:45 UTC, osiągając 11-miesięczny haj 12.118 dolarów o 04:00 UTC, zgodnie z CoinDesk’s Bitcoin Price Index.

Nagły spadek cen zlikwidował pozycje o wartości prawie 1,4 mld dolarów na głównych giełdach, jak zauważył dostawca danych instrumentów pochodnych Bybt.

Spadek cen wywołał likwidację sprzedaży o wartości 144 mln dolarów lub wymusił zamknięcie długich pozycji na BitMEX, najwyższe od 10 maja, jak wynika ze źródła danych Skew.
Giełda na Seszelach zarejestrowała również likwidacje kupna lub przymusowe zamknięcie krótkich pozycji o wartości 7,6 mln dolarów.

W ciągu ostatnich 24 godzin zlikwidowano co najmniej 72.422 pozycje, przy czym największa, wynosząca 10 milionów dolarów, została zlikwidowana na BitMEX.
Prawie 95% likwidacji BitMEX stanowiły długie pozycje – znak, że dźwignia finansowa została przechylona na byczą stronę – co nie jest zaskakujące, biorąc pod uwagę fakt, że krypto waluta niedawno odnotowała byczy przełom z ruchem powyżej 10 500 USD.

W czasie prasy, krypto waluta handlowała blisko 11.031 USD, co oznacza spadek o 5,5% w ciągu 24 godzin. Ceny wciąż rosną o prawie 57% w stosunku do roku poprzedniego.

Eter (ETH) również spadł o nieco ponad 20% po osiągnięciu 11-miesięcznego poziomu 415,71 dolarów. Obrót wyniósł 361,67 dolarów od czasu prasy, co jednak stanowiło wzrost o 1% w ciągu 24 godzin.
