Monat: September 2020


L’approvisionnement en Bitcoin (BTC) maintenu pendant plus d’un an atteint son plus haut niveau depuis 2010

L’équipe de Coinmetrics a publié son rapport hebdomadaire sur l‘ état du réseau dans lequel elle souligne que Bitcoin est de plus en plus utilisé comme réserve de valeur . Ce fait est démontré par le fait que 63,5% de l’offre de Bitcoin est détenue depuis plus d’un an; le plus élevé depuis 2010.

Le rapport a ensuite fourni le graphique suivant démontrant le pourcentage élevé de l’offre de Bitcoin qui a été détenu pendant plus d’un an

De plus, Bitcoin Future a franchi une nouvelle étape sous la forme du nombre de jours où BTC a échangé au-dessus du soutien psychologique de 10000 $. Pendant 64 jours, Bitcoin s’est échangé au-dessus de 10000 $ avec le dernier record de 62 jours observé entre décembre 2017 et janvier 2018.

Le jalon de Bitcoin a été souligné hier par Anthony Pompliano via le tweet suivant, et lorsque le record était de 63 jours consécutifs au-dessus de 10 000 $.

Bitcoin fait face à une clôture mensuelle dans les prochaines 24 heures

Bitcoin a également un autre jalon en attente sous la forme d’une clôture mensuelle et trimestrielle dans les prochaines 24 heures.

Bitcoin est sur la bonne voie pour clôturer le troisième trimestre sur une note positive malgré l’environnement de marché instable de la première semaine de septembre. Si Bitcoin ferme à son niveau actuel de 10675 $, BTC clôturera le troisième trimestre de 17,3% de bénéfices.

Cependant, il est également prudent de se rappeler que beaucoup de choses peuvent se passer sur les marchés de la cryptographie d’ici la clôture mensuelle de septembre. Au moment de la rédaction de cet article, plusieurs événements liés aux élections américaines et à l’état de l’économie mondiale pourraient secouer la fortune de Bitcoin dans les deux sens.

Par exemple, les démocrates de la Chambre des États-Unis réfléchissent à la possibilité d’un deuxième projet de loi de relance qui pourrait garantir aux résidents américains une autre série de chèques de relance de 1 200 $. Si le projet de loi est adopté, Bitcoin et les marchés boursiers réagiront positivement comme on l’a vu la dernière fois. De plus, toute nouvelle négative liée au coronavirus affectera également la façon dont Bitcoin clôture le troisième trimestre de 2020.

Bitcoin straight to $ 12,500? The $ 2,500 rally trend indicator is back

Bitcoin has seen a sharp correction in the past 24 hours, dropping to $ 10,400.

Just last week the coin had hit $ 11,200 after some thought it would go up to $ 12,000.

Bitcoin’s weakness is due to legacy markets like the S&P 500 weakening due to a number of geopolitical and macroeconomic trends.

Analysts remain optimistic about BTC’s price development despite the recent weakness

A fund manager notes that there is clear support in Immediate Edge price, which is marked by a critical trend indicator. This trend indicator recently generated a buy signal.

This is important because the last time this specific indicator issued such a signal, BTC was able to rebound by $ 2,500 in about a week.

Critical Bitcoin Bull trend indicator appears

A key Bitcoin trend indicator that last produced a buy-signal before the $ 2,500 surge in July and August has just re-emerged

Crypto-fund manager Mohit Sorout recently the chart below published after this indicator has turned green just two days ago. That suggests that Bitcoin is on the verge of resuming its rise – or at least ready to enter a period of consolidation.

On-chain analyst Willy Woo also suggests that Bitcoin is on the verge of a bullish trend reversal.

According to him, it is fair to say that a bullish turnaround is imminent, as the number of BTC that have changed hands on the chain has risen sharply recently. He shared the graph that shows that every time this metric has skyrocketed in the past few months, there has been a trend reversal.

“Another impulse from coins that change hands has been completed, the next change of direction in the coming weeks is likely to be upwards. It is very unlikely that we will experience any kind of catastrophic price dumping from here. „

From what the industry now knows, that spike was likely due to MicroStrategy amassing tens of thousands of BTC as reserve accumulation.

Microstrategy is a Nasdaq-listed company that made waves a few weeks ago when it announced a large investment in Bitcoin to hedge against macroeconomic risk.

Long-term on-chain trends are still bullish for BTC
Long-term on-chain trends confirm the view that Bitcoin will continue its rise.

Blockchain analytics firm CryptoQuant has found that 10 out of 11 of its long-term on-chain metrics currently indicate a “buy” or “strong buy” for Bitcoin.

Gene Simmons, de Kiss, twitea un mensaje críptico sobre sus planes en Bitcoin

El cantante de la banda de rock Kiss, Gene Simmons, ha twitteado un mensaje críptico sobre bitcoin en respuesta a una discusión sobre cómo hacer que la criptocurrencia sea accesible a las masas. Simmons dijo anteriormente que estaba interesado en Bitcoin Future, señalando que su precio sube cada vez que la gente piensa que está muerto.

El Tweet de Bitcoin de Gene Simmons

Gene Simmons es un músico, cantante, compositor, actor y productor estadounidense nacido en Israel. Fue el líder, bajista y co-cantante de Kiss, la banda de rock que cofundó con el cantante y guitarrista Paul Stanley. Según IMDB, Simmons ha aparecido en películas y TV 116 veces.

Llamó la atención de la comunidad criptográfica el martes cuando twitteó un mensaje críptico en respuesta a un hilo sobre cómo hacer que el bitcoin y el éter sean accesibles a las masas. El fundador del intercambio de cripto moneda Géminis, Cameron Winklevoss, comenzó el hilo twitteando: „La tecnología no acabará con el racismo. Pero puede eliminar el sesgo de algunas interacciones“. Añadió: „Por esto es que amo Bitcoin y el cripto. No tiene permiso. Es imparcial. A las matemáticas no les importa el color de la piel, el género, la orientación, etc.“

Después de múltiples tweets sobre el tema, el fundador del intercambio admitió que „meter a la gente en este nuevo sistema es el mayor desafío que enfrentamos como industria… Es más fácil comprar bitcoin y éter si ya estás en el viejo sistema. Si no tienes una cuenta bancaria, es difícil meter fondos en criptografía. Tenemos que cambiar esto“. Simmons, que tiene 896.4K seguidores en Twitter, respondió con un corto tweet que dice: „Lo haré. Lo haré“. En el momento de escribir este artículo, su tweet ha sido apreciado 1.4K veces.

Aunque mucha gente vio el tweet de Simmons como alcista, esperando una adopción masiva, varios le pidieron una explicación de lo que planea hacer. Algunos twittearon preguntando cuándo saldría la moneda del Beso, mientras que otros especulan que tiene un plan para impulsar la adopción de Bitcoin.

Sin embargo, Simmons no aclaró más el tema.

Otros comentarios inundaron el hilo con sugerencias de cómo se puede lograr la adopción masiva de bitcoin, como la instalación de más cajeros automáticos de bitcoin. Algunos mencionaron los servicios existentes que intentan facilitar a todo el mundo la adopción de bitcoin, como Cash App.

El martes no fue la primera vez que el famoso cantante de rock habló de bitcoin. En septiembre de 2017, le dijo a The Street en una entrevista que estaba interesado en bitcoin. Mientras enfatizaba que prefería diversificar sus inversiones, el ex cantante de Kiss dijo a la publicación:

Estoy interesado en bitcoin, pero sólo como una pieza del rompecabezas (de la inversión).

Fee madness at Ethereum: Coinbase Pro lets customers foot the bill

Ethereum is bursting at the seams – thanks to DeFi Since the launch of the Uniswap token UNI, network fees have reached a new high. Coinbase Pro has now pulled the rip cord.

Ethereum is more in demand than ever: As a first mover among smart contract platforms, the network has established itself as the standard for decentralized applications (dApps)

In addition to smart contract compatibility, this is also due to the fact that the ERC-20 standard Ethereum made it comparatively easy to create new “crypto currencies”. The problem: Ethereum has been reaching the limits of its scalability for some time. With corresponding consequences for the network fees, which at Ethereum are called gas fees.

Gas fees are incurred for every transaction in Bitcoin Bank – this applies to both Ether, the native currency of the Ethereum Blockchain, and Altcoins, which are based on one of the Ethereum standards. In addition to transactions, i.e. moving ether and tokens, every computing operation of a smart contract costs gas – the more complex, the higher the gas price. In the Ethereum Yellow Paperthere is a list with the gas fees for individual functions of a smart contract.

The gas fees are paid in ETH. To avoid mix-ups, the gas fees are usually denoted in Gwei. One Gwei corresponds to 0.000000001 ETH – a „nanoether“. At least 21,000 gas units are required for a standard transaction. On the one hand, Ethereum users have the option of determining how much they want to pay for a gas unit. You can also increase the gas price limit above the minimum value of 21,000. The desired transaction has a better chance of being processed by the miners, i.e. those who provide the computing power.

The principle of competition prevails: The Ethereum miners prefer the blocks with which they can earn the most gas fees. When the Ethereum network is particularly busy – which is usually the case – the Ethereum miners have the luxury of being able to put less profitable blocks behind. So if you want to see your Ethereum transaction processed quickly, you should have deeper pockets.

Uniswap becomes the largest Ethereum „Gas Guzzler“

The hype about decentralized financial platforms ( DeFi ), which started in June with the launch of COMP, has raised fees in the Ethereum network to unprecedented heights. No wonder: After all, almost every DeFi protocol to date has been based on Ethereum. The decentralized exchange platform Uniswap is currently causing high spirits among Ethereum miners. Together with the Ethereum variant of the Stable Coins Tether (USDT), Uniswap is currently one of the largest „gas eater“ in the Ethereum ecosystem.

What makes miners happy causes small investors to frown. A calculation example: If you want to exchange a UNI token for ether on Uniswap, you have an exchange rate of currently 0.0134033 ETH (around 5 US dollars) per UNI. The gas fees are almost three times as much: A whopping 0.0347 ETH would be charged in the example transaction – thanks to the high utilization of Ethereum.

Crypto whales start September with strength

Since the beginning of September, Whale Alert has been full of reports and notifications of the constant activity of crypto whales. However, this time we bring you a summary of the highlights of their activity with Ether (ETH), Bitcoin (BTC) and yearn.finance (YFI).

YFI triples Bitcoin in value

Crypto whales accumulate ETH in September
A lot has happened in the last few weeks with respect to the Ethereum. With the rise of decentralized finance (DeFi) some whales have become a little more interested in the Ethereum ecosystem, and so since the beginning of September a marked accumulation of ETH has been noticed.

Exactly, since September 1st, they have carried out nineteen operations for a total of 1,074,958 ETH, of which 51.02% were taken from exchanges to unknown wallets. The accumulated total was 548,349 ETH, while other whales introduced 276,610 ETH in different exchanges for sale taking advantage of the slight price increase of this cryptomone currency.

Finally, in the case of Ether, 249,999 ETH were also moved between unknown wallets.

Interest in YFI is growing considerably

In that sense, it is also worth highlighting what happened with YFI. This crypt currency has had an impressive growth, even exceeding the value of Bitcoin. Since then, crypto whales have accumulated a total of 1,058 YFI.

At the time of writing this publication, this crypt currency has a value of US$ 23,703.31 according to CoinMarketCap. This is 6.24% more than yesterday, but it still doesn’t reach the US$ 34,916 of last August 31.

However, the predominant trend was to take the tokens from unknown wallets to exchanges probably to sell them. Thus, crypto whales carried 54.87% of the total YFI mobilized to different exchanges.

At the time of publication, 3,490 YFI have been mobilized through 26 operations since the beginning of September. This is equal to US$ 82,724,551.9.

Therefore, we can affirm that the whales increased their interest in taking advantage of the profits from the sale of this cryptomone while it reached its maximum price so far. Other whales that bet on its growth are those that accumulated the 1,058 YFI reflected in the summary table.

What do whales do with Ripple and Bitcoin?

More than 80,000 BTC since the beginning of September
In this first week of September, Bitcoin whales performed 47 operations with BTC. These total 80,889 BTC. The predominant trend was to take the tokens from unknown wallets to exchanges, specifically 45,055 BTC, or 55.7% of the total.

Meanwhile, the accumulated total was 27,274 BTC. This means that at the moment whales are looking to secure the benefits generated by the crypto currency trade while BTC still faces a price correction, but that there are still whales appealing for the long term and therefore they continue to accumulate. Likewise, a total of 8,560 BTCs were mobilized between exchanges as shown in our summary table.

Since September 3rd, Bitcoin Code has been declining considerably in terms of price. At the time of writing this publication changes hands for a price of US$ 10,241.39 according to CoinDesk. This represents an increase of 1.33% from yesterday, but still doesn’t match the prices of the beginning of the week.

Therefore, it is understandable that in the midst of all this many whales considered taking advantage of the moments when it was still close to US$ 12,000 before it continued to lose strength. But in doing so, they increased the available liquidity and thereby supported the reduction of the price of cryptomoney.

In this same sense, it is not surprising that others who bet on the medium and long term were precisely those who accumulated the 27,274 BTC described above.

Whatever the case, the truth is that the whales mobilized the equivalent of US$ 828,415,795.71 in only six days.

Notícias em Cryptocurrency Roundup para 19 de Agosto de 2020

Em mais um ataque cibernético que poderia potencialmente resultar em má publicidade para criptografia, hackers desconhecidos exigiram resgate de Bitcoin Loophole de pesquisadores trabalhando em uma possível cura para a COVID-19.

O ataque ocorreu em junho, quando um grupo de pesquisadores da Universidade da Califórnia em São Francisco (UCSF) achou seus dados bioestatísticos inacessíveis. As últimas transcrições revelam algumas negociações intensas que aconteceram com os hackers.

Os dados comprometidos incluíram importantes trabalhos de pesquisa sobre a COVID-19. Os hackers exigiram 3 milhões de dólares em bitcoin, depois dos quais os investigadores recuperariam o controlo dos seus servidores comprometidos. Com bilhões de dólares em jogo, a universidade foi pressionada a intermediar um acordo.

Mais sobre isso e outras grandes histórias do dia no noticiário diário do BeInCrypto de 19 de agosto de 2020.

Hackers exigem resgate massivo de bitcoin para a Uni COVID-19 Vaccine Data

Em 5 de junho, pesquisadores da Universidade da Califórnia em São Francisco (UCSF) subitamente encontraram seus dados bioestatísticos inacessíveis. Isso incluiu a pesquisa COVID-19, relatou a Bloomberg. Os hackers fecharam seus servidores e exigiram que eles visitassem um site na web escura para iniciar as negociações.

O hacker parecia ter um tom quase jovial. Embora qualquer equipe de segurança esteja envergonhada por uma brecha, o operador, como o hacker se chamava, explicou que o laboratório estava apenas no lugar errado, na hora errada.

Gotas de Bitcoin depois da Falha da Falha Acima de $12.000

Em 17 de agosto, o preço do bitcoin surgiu da área de 12.000 dólares, que vinha atuando como resistência desde a alta de 2 de agosto. Embora a fuga parecesse inicialmente legítima, o preço diminuiu no dia seguinte e já caiu abaixo do nível de fuga.

O fechamento de 18 de agosto foi marginalmente maior que o de 17 de agosto, então é possível que o candelabro atual crie um longo pavio mais baixo e volte a subir para recuperar a área de $12.000. Esta possibilidade parece bastante improvável, no entanto, quando consideramos outros sinais.

O Bitcoin tem gerado uma divergência considerável de baixa.
Há apoio e resistência a $11.100 e $12.000.
O preço possivelmente começou a sub-onda C, o passo final em sua correção atual.

Citibank Mistakenly Envia $175 Milhões para o Hedge Fund

Em um erro multimilionário que poderia custar caro, o Citibank reportou ter transferido 175 milhões de dólares para um beneficiário não intencional. Aparentemente, o fundo de cobertura que recebeu o dinheiro recusa-se agora a enviá-lo de volta.

Para o Citibank, uma ação legal contra o fundo de hedge é provavelmente a única maneira de sair desta confusão. Alguns observadores da indústria de moedas criptográficas pegaram na história e fizeram algumas comparações dolorosas para lidar com os ativos digitais.

Tentativas de Ethereum Empurrão Final Rumo a $500

O preço do Ethereum atingiu quase o nível 0,5 de fibras de todo o declínio que começou em abril de 2019, encontrado em $460. O nível também marcou a aceleração da queda a partir dessa alta e é provável que atue como resistência no futuro.

Os indicadores técnicos ainda estão em alta. Tanto o RSI quanto o MACD ainda estão aumentando, embora o primeiro esteja sobre-comprado. Ainda não há nenhuma divergência de baixa. Se o preço fosse quebrar acima do nível de resistência atual, o próximo seria encontrado em $550.

Chainlink (LINK) pode finalmente ter ficado sem vapor

Durante os dias 15 a 17 de agosto, o preço do Chainlink (LINK) criou um padrão de estrela noturna, que normalmente é considerado um padrão de reversão em baixa. Se o preço continuar diminuindo, os níveis de suporte mais próximos são encontrados em $13 e $10,50.

Os indicadores técnicos são de baixa, embora não confirmem uma reversão definitiva. Embora o RSI não tenha gerado nenhuma divergência de baixa, ele foi comprado em excesso por 14 dias e tem caído desde então.

Autoridades dos EUA cobram do AirBit Club pela execução do esquema de investimento Crypto

Lançado em 2015, o AirBit Club ofereceu lucros garantidos em troca de investimentos em dinheiro em „memberships“ do clube. Estes lucros deveriam ser completamente passivos e acumulados diariamente. Na verdade, isto era uma fantasia girada pelos alegados golpistas.

Enquanto o portal de investimentos online mostrava algumas evidências desses „lucros“, nenhuma mineração ou negociação de moeda criptográfica estava realmente ocorrendo para apoiá-los.
