Sondaggio: 2 americani su 5 investono gli assegni di stimolo in Bitcoin

Un recente sondaggio ha scoperto che i destinatari degli assegni di stimolo negli Stati Uniti erano più propensi a investire in Bitcoin e altre criptovalute prima delle offerte di azioni tradizionali.

Un nuovo sondaggio ha scoperto che gli investitori sono più propensi a scommettere su Bitcoin e altre criptovalute davanti alle azioni con i proventi del prossimo round di assegni di stimolo.

Gli assegni stanno arrivando per il Bitcoin

La megabanca giapponese Mizuho ha scoperto in un recente sondaggio che i destinatari degli assegni di stimolo negli Stati Uniti erano più propensi a investire in Bitcoin e altre criptovalute prima delle tradizionali offerte di azioni, come da un rapporto di MarketWatch.

Mizuho ha detto che oltre il 20% dei destinatari dell’assegno si aspettava di destinare fino al 20% dei loro assegni di stimolo a Bitcoin e/o azioni. Il 13% di questi erano propensi ad allocare dal 20% all’80% nei mercati, mentre il 2% voleva investire oltre l’80% dei loro assegni nei mercati.

Il sondaggio piuttosto piccolo, un sondaggio di soli 235 individui, ha scoperto che 2 su 5 individui intervistati (40%) stavano cercando di investire il loro intero assegno di stimolo di 1.400 dollari in criptovalute. Mizuho ha estrapolato questi dati per scoprire quanti dei 380 miliardi di dollari in assegni diretti sarebbero arrivati al mercato delle criptovalute – concludendo che oltre 40 miliardi di dollari erano, quindi, in arrivo nel settore nascente.

„Bitcoin è la scelta di investimento preferita tra i destinatari degli assegni. Comprende quasi il 60% della spesa incrementale, il che può implicare 25 miliardi di dollari di spesa incrementale in bitcoin dagli assegni di stimolo“, hanno detto gli analisti di Mizuho Dan Dolev e Ryan Coyne. Hanno aggiunto che le cifre rappresentano il 2-3% del capitale di mercato attuale di Bitcoin di 1,1 trilioni di dollari.

Lo stimolo trova un modo

Gli assegni di stimolo sono stati distribuiti ai cittadini degli Stati Uniti dall’anno scorso per combattere gli effetti negativi del coronavirus in corso. Questi dovrebbero aiutare le famiglie a condurre una vita normale fino a quando l’economia non sarà tornata alla normalità.

Ma mentre ci sono alcuni che dipendono dagli assegni, una percentuale significativa della popolazione statunitense investe invece i proventi nei mercati finanziari o nel settore immobiliare.

Alcuni nello spazio Bitcoin dicono che gli assegni di stimolo potrebbero valere multipli in futuro se i destinatari scelgono di comprare Bitcoin invece di incassarli. La prima tornata di assegni (di 1.200 dollari) avrebbe ora un valore di oltre 11.000 dollari se fossero stati investiti in Bitcoin.

Nel frattempo, il sondaggio di Mizuho mostra risultati simili raggiunti da recenti indagini in altri paesi.

Un sondaggio del Regno Unito (di oltre 2.000 cittadini) dell’inizio di questo mese ha concluso che oltre il 70% di tutti gli investitori intervistati erano propensi ad investire in Bitcoin quest’anno, con il 31% degli intervistati che si aspettavano che l’asset superasse il livello di 69.000 dollari di prezzo e il 18% che si aspettava anche livelli rialzisti di oltre 130.000 dollari o più.

Ma non tutti erano felici. Alcuni intervistati di quel sondaggio sentivano di aver già perso la barca e che investire in Bitcoin a questi livelli era rischioso. Chissà cosa ne pensano gli investitori statunitensi.

Jack Dorsey betaalt $ 1 miljoen aan Coin Center bovenop de donatie van $ 2 miljoen aan Grayscale

De in DC gevestigde belangenbehartigingsgroep heeft zojuist miljoenen ingezameld voor haar lopende onderzoek en lobbyactiviteiten. Hier is hoe de cijfers zijn afgebroken.

2021 belooft een genereus jaar te worden voor het schenken van cryptocurrency

Op woensdag kondigde Coin Center , de toonaangevende non-profitorganisatie op het gebied van cryptovaluta in Washington, DC, aan dat het miljoenen aan extra financiering heeft opgehaald van spraakmakende namen in de crypto-industrie.

Jerry Brito, de uitvoerend directeur van Coin Center, tweette dat zijn organisatie genoeg donaties had ontvangen om de $ 1 miljoen aan gelijke bijdragen van Grayscale Investments , ’s werelds grootste cryptofondsbeheerder, te claimen .

Minder dan drie weken geleden kondigde Bitcoin Code aan dat het $ 1 miljoen had gedoneerd aan de belangenbehartigingsgroep en een extra $ 1 miljoen aan gelijkwaardige bijdragen had toegezegd. Een paar dagen later kondigde digitale valuta-uitwisseling Kraken aan dat het $ 100.000 aan Coin Center beloofde.

Misschien wel het meest opmerkelijke nieuwsbericht kwam in een vervolg-tweet toen Brito bevestigde dat Twitter-CEO Jack Dorsey $ 1 miljoen aan de belangenbehartigingsgroep heeft geschonken. „We waren bijna bij ons doel voor de matchingscampagne toen hij ons over de top zette en nog wat,“ zei hij.

Dorsey zit ook achter Square, wiens mobiele betalingsapp gebruikers Bitcoin laat kopen en verkopen . Square is ook een van de grootste bedrijfshouders van BTC, met 4.709 eenheden van de virtuele valuta in zijn boeken.

Dat komt overeen met bijna $ 210 miljoen in de huidige waarde

Het advocacy-werk van Coin Center is in toenemende mate gericht op het bevorderen van financiële privacy en „verstandig belastingbeleid“, aldus Neeraj Agrawal, de directeur communicatie van de organisatie.

De cryptogemeenschap staat bekend om zijn vrijgevigheid, vooral in de nasleep van de bullmarkt van 2017-18, waar miljoenen mensen over de hele wereld een fortuin verdienden door te investeren in digitale activa. Bedrijven zoals The Giving Block maken het gemakkelijker voor organisaties om digitale valutadonaties te accepteren.

The Giving Block onlangs verschenen drie vacatures op haar website, die de groei van de crypto donaties industrie weerspiegelt.

OTC-markederne overstiger $ 1 milliard

Mere end en milliard om dagen udveksler hænder på aktiehandlede GBTC, som har set øget interesse som den vigtigste måde for amerikanere at komme ind på bitcoin i en aktieform.

ETHE er noget langt bagefter, men også dens volumener er steget til nu $ 150 millioner om dagen.

GrayScale har indgivet en meddelelse om fritaget udbud i dag, der viser $ 919 millioner blev udstedt til 514 investorer.

For bitcoin blev der udstedt 5 milliarder dollars til 837 investorer. BCH så også noget aktieudstedelse på $ 77 millioner, mens det for ETC var højere på $ 95 millioner.

GrayScales samlede aktiver under forvaltning er nu steget til $ 28 mia. Nogle 24 milliarder dollars kun for bitcoin, omkring 4 milliarder dollars for eth og små krummer for resten.

At gøre dette nu til en betydelig vej for bitcoin-prisindstilling, da en række store investorer har sagt, at de planlægger at komme ind på markedet gennem GrayScale.

Som en reguleret enhed, der beskæftiger sig med forældremyndighed, handler den med bitcoin som enhver anden aktie fra traditionel og etableret infrastruktur.

Således har det tiltrukket nogle institutionelle investorer såvel som voldgiftsmænd på grund af dets betydelige præmie på $ 2.000 for bitcoin.

A petition for XRP is launched on the White House website

A petition for XRP is launched on the White House website

  • On December 29, the XRP community launched a petition on the White House website.
  • 10,000 people signed the petition; 90,002 signatures are needed.
  • Legal proceedings against Ripple Labs begin in February.

Faced with losses since the Securities and Exchange Commission declared XRP a security, the asset community is asking the US government to declare it a currency.

We, the people…

On December 29, a petition appeared on the US White House website regarding the fate of Ripple Labs‘ XRP token. The call called on the government Bitcoin Superstar to uphold the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network’s (FinCEN) determination that XRP is a currency.

At the time of publication of this article, approximately 10,000 people had signed the petition. To have an impact, the petition needs 90,002 signatories.

Supporters launched the petition in response to a December 23rd action by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). The SEC accused the executives of Ripple Labs of selling unregistered securities (namely, XRP). These sales totaled $1.3 billion, according to the charges.

Ripple makes waves

These are more than accusations that current CEO Christian Larsen and former CEO Brad Garlinghouse created Ripple to sell XRP. The SEC is also accusing both of unregistered sales of XRP, totalling approximately $600 million.

Garlinghouse announced the impending charges on December 22 and strongly defended his view that XRP was being attacked for non-fundamental reasons. He highlighted the fact that Ripple had been in the market for eight years. In addition, he questioned the timing and motivation of the lawsuit. The SEC, acting in the final days of the Trump administration, will leave the Biden administration to sort out the rest.

Local storm or global event?

The SEC’s action sent shock waves through the XRP community despite Garlinghouse’s warning. US-based exchanges have begun to rapidly remove or suspend XRP from their trading platforms. Not all of these suspensions took effect immediately. Coinbase, for example, will suspend trading on January 19th. Bitstamp will suspend trading and deposits on January 8th.

Outside the US, life continues for XRP holders. The Australian exchange BTC Markets tweeted on 31 December that for the time being they would continue to list the token.

For our #XRP clients, we are monitoring events in the US regarding the SEC. However, we have no plans to delist XRP at this time @Ripple.

Bitcoin konsolidiert unter $24.000 nach bullischer Wochenendrallye

Der Bitcoin (BTC)-Preis hat einen zinsbullischen Wochenschluss deutlich über dem bisherigen langfristigen Widerstandsbereich erreicht.

BTC konsolidiert derzeit knapp unter $24.000 und es wird erwartet, dass er noch einmal ausbricht.

Bitcoin-Langzeit-Bewegung

In der Woche vom 14. bis 21. Dezember erzeugte BTC eine massive bullische Kerze und durchbrach überzeugend den Bereich von $19.500, um ein Hoch von $24.295 zu erreichen. BTC befindet sich jetzt in der Preisfindung und hat keine Widerstände mehr, die über dem aktuellen Preis liegen.

Die technischen Indikatoren sind immer noch bullisch, obwohl sie zeigen, dass die Rallye extrem überkauft ist. Der Tageszeitrahmen unterstützt die Ansicht aus dem Wochenchart.

BTC hat durchweg höhere Höchststände erreicht und acht aufeinanderfolgende zinsbullische Kerzen erzeugt, bevor es gestern zu einem kleinen bärischen Abschluss kam. Die heutige Kerze entwickelt sich jedoch zinsbullisch und könnte die Kerze von gestern verschlingen.

Ähnlich wie beim wöchentlichen Zeitrahmen zeigen die technischen Indikatoren keine Schwäche, obwohl der RSI und MACD überkauft sind. Im Gegenteil, der Stochastic Oszillator steht kurz davor, ein zinsbullisches Cross zu bilden, was den zinsbullischen Trend weiter festigen würde.

Mögliches Retracement?

Sobald Crypto Bank die 24.000 $-Marke durchbrochen hatte, begann der Zwei-Stunden-Chart Schwäche zu zeigen. Der RSI erzeugte eine bärische Divergenz (rote Linie), während der MACD rückläufig war. Dies deutete darauf hin, dass ein Rückgang in Richtung des 0,5 Fib-Retracement-Levels bei $21.785 erfolgen könnte.

Der RSI erzeugte jedoch kurz darauf eine versteckte bullische Divergenz (blaue Linie), die die vorherige bärische Divergenz ungültig machte und darauf hindeutete, dass BTC wahrscheinlich noch einmal höher steigen wird. Dies wird auch durch den MACD unterstützt, der sich nach oben bewegt.

BTC-Wellenzählung

Die Wellenzählung deutet darauf hin, dass sich BTC derzeit in der Unterwelle 5 (unten in schwarz dargestellt) der Welle 3 (orange) befindet, nachdem er eine unregelmäßige flache Korrektur in der Unterwelle 4 abgeschlossen hat.

Ein wahrscheinliches Ziel für die Spitze der Welle 3 befindet sich zwischen $25.871-$26.000, der 2,61 Fib-Erweiterung der Welle 1 (orange) bzw. der 4,61 Fib-Erweiterung der Unterwelle 1 (schwarz). Es ist also zu erwarten, dass BTC korrigiert, bevor es wieder nach oben geht.

Ein Rückgang unter das Hoch der Welle 1 bei 19.918 $ würde diese spezielle Wellenzählung ungültig machen.

Fazit

Es wird erwartet, dass Bitcoin noch einmal ausbricht und sich in Richtung $26.000 bewegt, bevor es korrigiert. Ein Rückgang unter $19.918 würde die zinsbullische Zählung ungültig machen.

Japanese firm SBI to launch crypto-currency loans

The Japanese financial firm, SBI Holdings, is preparing everything to offer its users a loan service with crypto-currency.

More and more companies all over the world are starting to get involved in the cryptomoney market. In recent years, virtual currencies such as Bitcoin have managed to leave behind their reputation as purely speculative assets. To begin to be recognized as first class financial products by traditional financial firms. A sign of this is the news that the Japanese firm SBI will launch loans in cryptomon currencies.

Traditional firms and crypto-currencies

The relationship between traditional financial firms and crypto-currencies has always been tense. For many years, large investment firms around the world have evaluated Bitcoin as a potential investment of their capital. Concluding in most cases that the cryptomoney is nothing more than a speculative asset with no real value.

This is the position even today held by world-class firms such as Goldman Sachs. These firms advise their clients against acquiring cryptomoney due to the sudden changes that its price may undergo. And which can be potentially disastrous for investors.

However, this attitude has been changing rapidly in recent years. As Bitcoin and other cryptomonies have demonstrated their intrinsic value, both in their role as an active reserve of value and with other services offered by the Blockchain technology, and which allow an expansion of the financial market.

Because of this, large traditional financial companies have recently decided to invest in Bitcoin. Doing it either directly, acquiring and safeguarding their own Bitcoin. As well as through companies like Grayscale, which for a small fee, take care of the process of buying and storing the cryptomoney.

Japanese firm SBI joins the game

So it should come as no surprise that one of the most important financial firms in Japan and the world, such as SBI Holdings, wants to enter the world of cryptology. To this end, it is preparing to launch its own crypto loan service, which will allow its users to deposit BTCs and earn interest in return.

Thus, users will be able to deposit and withdraw a minimum of 0.1 BTC in this service and a maximum of 5 BTC. And the whole process will be carried out through the „VC Lending“ platform, through which users can access to make their deposits in SBI VC Trade.

Initially, the Japanese firm SBI Holdings will launch its platform only for Bitcoin. However, SBI is planning to expand the service to accept XRP and Ethereum in the medium term. This would definitively integrate it into the crypto market, and send a signal to the financial market, by showing the confidence that big firms like SBI have in cryptomoney.

Bitcoin drops below $ 18K – but analyst thinks massive breakout is possible soon

Bitcoin is currently in a consolidation process and is struggling to control its near-term outlook.

The medium-term performance of the cryptocurrency is likely to depend on whether the bulls can push it back above $ 19,000, as that was a crucial level for Bitcoin Pro.

A sustained trading boom down here could open the gates to serious losses, but many factors work hard in favor of cryptocurrency

One trader believes that BTC’s consolidation channel is about to lose its place, which could mean that a massive upward push is imminent.

For this to take effect, the cryptocurrency has to keep making higher lows.

Bitcoin has gotten caught up in intense sideways trading in the past few weeks.

This is because the resistance in the upper $ 19,000 region is still quite high, while buying pressure remains strong in the mid-US $ 18,000 region.

Bitcoin’s consolidation phase has narrowed a lot recently, which could be a sign that a massive move is imminent in the near future.

One trader believes that a massive move is imminent in the near future as the cryptocurrency channel is rapidly narrowing.

Bitcoin is struggling to stay above $ 19,000 with increasing selling pressure

Bitcoin is currently trading at $ 18,000. Overnight, the cryptocurrency quickly fell before it could find any support.

The fact that there is support here is positive and could mean an upturn is imminent in the near future.

The resistance at USD 19,000 is quite strong, however, and converting that level into support has proven to be a difficult task.

Bitcoin’s consolidation channel gets „out of hand“

A trader stated in a tweet that Bitcoin’s consolidation channel is running out of space – which could mean massive volatility is imminent.

He states that BTC will stay in this channel as long as he continues to see lower highs and higher lows. However, this trend can only continue for a certain period of time.

„BTC will continue to refine this area of consolidation … lower highs, higher lows, at some point we will run out of space.“

Canadian Miner Bitfarms annonce une perte au troisième trimestre malgré le prix élevé du Bitcoin

Les chiffres de Bitfarms Q3 2020 montrent des pertes trimestrielles et annuelles.

Le Trust Project est un consortium international d’organisations de presse établissant des normes de transparence.

Le mineur canadien Bitfarms a publié ses résultats financiers du troisième trimestre le 26 novembre, montrant une perte pour la période. L’EBIDTA était une perte de 0,3 million de dollars pour le trimestre se terminant le 30 septembre 2020.

La marge brute et la marge de Bitfarms sont toutes deux devenues négatives sur une base annuelle pour le trimestre. Cependant, certains résultats de neuf mois ont quand même réussi à s’améliorer d’année en année.

Le chiffre d’affaires du T3 2020 a chuté de 30% d’une année sur l’autre, passant de 9,7 millions de dollars à près de 6,8 millions de dollars. Par rapport au T2 2020 , le chiffre d’affaires a baissé de 7,7%. La marge minière brute a chuté d’une année sur l’autre pour le trimestre, passant de 67% à 26%.

Les chiffres de la marge brute minière sur neuf mois de la société étaient un peu meilleurs, la marge passant de 62% à 38%.

Pourquoi et machines

La détérioration des chiffres, selon Bitfarms, était en grande partie due à l‘ événement de réduction de moitié du Bitcoin le 11 mai 2020. Pendant ce temps, les CAPEX ont augmenté à la suite d’une mise à niveau majeure qui était également conçue pour réduire les dépenses d’exploitation.

Entre autres mesures, Bitfarms met à niveau son parc de machines minières sur ses cinq sites miniers au Québec. Dans un communiqué de presse d’octobre , la société a annoncé qu’elle avait conclu des accords de location sur de nouvelles machines minières qui seraient installées d’ici la fin novembre.

De plus, le communiqué a donné un aperçu du fonctionnement de l’entreprise. La capacité de hachage a augmenté de 55%, soit 431 pentahashes (PH) sur les neuf mois de 2020.

Chainlink awards grants for blockchain-based microinsurance in Kenya

Kenyan farmers who will be excessively affected by climate change will receive insurance coverage through blockchain technology.

The Chainlink Community Grant Program, i.e. the funding program of the Financial Peak scam crypto project, has announced that it will be awarding funding to the joint insurance project of the blockchain protocol Etherisc and the microinsurer ACRE Africa.

According to the corresponding announcement by Chainlink, a blockchain-based insurance platform is to be developed as part of the funded project, which will provide inexpensive insurance for almost 250,000 smallholders in Kenya. A large proportion of these farmers will probably be severely affected by the consequences of climate change in the next three years.

The planned platform is to offer insurance that can be claimed in the local currency with monthly contributions of just 50 cents

The Chainlink grant will be used to fund various aspects of the project. So the development of smart contracts and an easy-to-use user interface should be achieved with them, and integration into regional payment systems should also be created through them. In addition, the money can also be used for many other technical challenges.

In addition, part of the money is to flow into the financing of studies that examine the profitability of insurance payments for grain cultivation in African countries.

The aim is to find sustainable models that are worthwhile for both the insurer and the farmers

“We are pleased to be able to continue our work with the farmers in East Africa with the support of the Chainlink Community. The funds help us to expand and implement our low-cost insurance for farmers in cooperation with Etherisc, ”explains ACRE Africa CEO George Kura.

The project is part of a larger blockchain usage trend in Africa. At the beginning of the year, for example, the company Telokanda announced a blockchain project that would make the weather in West Africa traceable.
