Grayscale cobrará Bitcoin para recuperar 250 millones de dólares de sus acciones, cree Peter Schiff

admin, · Kategorien: Bitcoin

Peter Schiff, que odia el BTC, ha declarado que Grayscale tendrá que empezar a deshacerse del Bitcoin para recomprar una cantidad gigantesca de sus acciones basadas en el BTC.

En uno de sus recientes tuits, un riguroso opositor al Bitcoin, el CEO de Euro Pacific Capital, Peter Schiff, escribió que es probable que Grayscale se convierta en un vendedor de Bitcoin, tal y como él esperaba.

DCG planea recomprar GBTC

Digital Capital Group, encabezado por Barry Silbert (que fundó Grayscale), ha anunciado recientemente que tiene la intención de recomprar hasta 250 millones de dólares de las acciones basadas en Bitcoin (GBTC) de Grayscale, las principales y más populares.

Schiff es un bicho de oro y un odioso de Bitcoin. A principios de este año, afirmó que Grayscale podría pasar de ser el mayor comprador de BTC a ser el mayor vendedor de Bitcoin en poco tiempo.

Ahora, Schiff afirma que sus expectativas se están cumpliendo en parte. Como la empresa principal Grayscale quiere ahora comprar una gran cantidad de GBTC de la circulación, Schiff afirma que tendrá que empezar a vender Bitcoin con el fin de encontrar dinero para esa compra.

Prima negativa de GBTC detectada recientemente

Recientemente, las acciones de Grayscale Bitcoin Trust han estado cotizando con un gran descuento, llegando a ser negativas en varias ocasiones, siendo el precio de GBTC menor que el valor del activo nativo (NAV). Glassnode informa que ya ha permanecido en negativo durante 10 días seguidos.

Además, durante un tiempo, Grayscale estuvo reduciendo la cantidad total de cripto AUM.

El 11 de marzo, el precio de GBTC era de 52,30 dólares, y el precio de las tenencias de BTC por acción ascendía a 53,21 dólares, según el sitio web de la empresa.

La cantidad total de criptomonedas bajo la gestión de la empresa a 11 de marzo era de 43.700 millones de dólares. El 9 de marzo, esta cifra ascendía a 42.100 millones de dólares.

El hijo de Peter Schiff apuesta por el Bitcoin al 100%

Como informó U.Today anteriormente, el hijo de Peter Schiff, Spencer, había convertido toda su cartera en Bitcoin e incluso tuvo que vender sus acciones de plata para hacerlo.

Peter bromeó diciendo que tendría que desheredar a Spencer para evitar que desperdiciara toda su riqueza ganada con esfuerzo para comprar más Bitcoin.

Usuários do Kraken exigem reembolso em caso de liquidação de flash crash

admin, · Kategorien: Bitcoin

Os negociantes de margem no Kraken estão indignados depois que um flash-crash desencadeou liquidações no atacado enquanto a bolsa estava inacessível aos usuários.

Os usuários do Kraken estão exigindo compensação depois que violentos flash crashes localizados na bolsa resultaram em negociações alavancadas sendo liquidadas em meio às retrações acentuadas registradas nos mercados de criptografia em 22 de fevereiro

Em 22 de fevereiro, ocorreu a maior vela diária da história do Bitcoin ( BTC ) e do Éter ( ETH ) em valor linear, com o BTC caindo cerca de $ 9.500 de $ 57.500, enquanto o ETH despencou $ 400 de $ 1.940 no intervalo de 24 horas no Coinbase .

No entanto, parece que uma combinação de suporte de compra fraco e liquidações em cascata resultou em perdas particularmente pesadas para a Kraken – com o BTC caindo 22% para menos de $ 45.000, enquanto a ETH caiu 64% para encontrar suporte em apenas $ 700.

A reação do público no subreddit r / Krakensupport fez com que muitos comerciantes expressassem suas frustrações. Alguns traders estão até ameaçando organizar uma ação legal contra a bolsa, com o usuário do Reddit u / dtk6802 alegando ter perdido a maior parte de suas economias em meio ao flash crash:

“Eu perdi a maior parte das minhas economias e não recebi uma resposta de um humano. Eu acho que eles reembolsariam ou perderiam todos os seus clientes. Estou mal do estômago, mas entrarei no processo com muitas provas (capturas de tela) se não for reembolsado. ”

No entanto, a queda parece que para alguns se estendeu além das perdas e endividamento, com o usuário do Reddit u / GoEers304 reivindicando seu saldo, indicando que agora devem dinheiro a Kraken como resultado do crash-crash

“De alguma forma, devo a eles 120 dólares. Como uma conta fica negativa? Eu tinha bastante margem para cobrir todas as outras quedas de plataforma, mas quem pode cobrir uma queda de 90% falsa? ” eles disseram.

Apesar dos pedidos de compensação pelos flash-crashes dos usuários do Kraken, comentários nas redes sociais sugerem que a bolsa não reembolsará os comerciantes por suas perdas.

Il responsabile di Bitcoin Core fa un passo indietro e incoraggia la decentralizzazione

admin, · Kategorien: Bitcoin, Crypto

„Una cosa è chiara: questo è un progetto serio ora, e dobbiamo iniziare a prendere sul serio la decentralizzazione“, ha detto Wladimir van der Laan.

Il manutentore principale di Bitcoin Core, Wladimir van der Laan, ha deciso di assumere „ancora di più“ un „ruolo di sfondo“ per il bene di decentralizzare ulteriormente il progetto, secondo un nuovo post sul blog.

Bitcoin Core è il software chiave alla base della rete Bitcoin. Mentre il lavoro di van der Laan è per lo più di natura „amministrativa“, assicurandosi che il codice del progetto proceda senza problemi, alcuni nella comunità lo vedono come una sorta di leader. Come dice van der Laan, è diventato una sorta di „collo di bottiglia centralizzato“.

Il suo annuncio arriva dopo essersi trovato in mezzo alle polemiche giovedì. Alcuni utenti di Crypto Cash non hanno gradito la sua decisione di ritirare il libro bianco da bitcoincore.org, in seguito alle minacce legali di Craig Wright. Ma van der Laan sostiene che questa decisione di ritirarsi da Core è una decisione a cui stava pensando da un po‘.

Gli sviluppatori di Bitcoin pesano i costi di sfidare la rivendicazione di copyright del Libro Bianco

„Inizierò delegando i miei compiti, e diminuendo il mio coinvolgimento. Non ho intenzione di smettere di contribuire a Bitcoin, o anche al progetto Bitcoin Core, ma vorrei togliermi dal percorso critico e assumere (ancora di più) un ruolo di secondo piano“, ha scritto.

Decentrare lo sviluppo di Bitcoin Core

Pensa che questa mossa aiuterà a decentralizzare il progetto, una moneta digitale che si suppone non abbia leader. „Una cosa è chiara: questo è un progetto serio ora, e dobbiamo iniziare a prendere sul serio la decentralizzazione“, ha scritto van der Laan.

La sua decisione è parte di uno sforzo molto più grande per decentralizzare ulteriormente il progetto. Per esempio, il 2020 ha visto un’ondata di aziende Bitcoin che hanno elargito sovvenzioni agli sviluppatori che lavorano a tempo pieno sul protocollo sottostante.

L’exchange OKCoin, per esempio, sta finanziando Marco Falke, che è il mantenitore più attivo dietro van der Laan in termini di commit – modifiche al codice che sono state aggiunte con successo al progetto. Il popolare exchange Coinbase sta ora sostenendo anche due sviluppatori, dopo aver ricevuto molte richieste di farlo dalla comunità. Diverse altre aziende si sono unite a loro nel distribuire sovvenzioni nell’ultimo anno.

Crypto Long & Short: Come lo sviluppo di Bitcoin si sta evolvendo – e cosa c’è dietro

John Newbery, collaboratore di Bitcoin Core, ha lanciato l’organizzazione non-profit Brink per il mentoring e il finanziamento di altri sviluppatori, nel tentativo di coinvolgere ancora più collaboratori, in particolare di diversa provenienza.

Infatti, van der Laan nota nel suo post che lui non è più il più attivo manutentore di Bitcoin Core, dato che molti altri si sono aggiunti nel corso degli anni.

Inoltre, egli delinea altre idee per decentralizzare il progetto. Per esempio, Bitcoincore.org è uno dei principali siti web dove gli utenti possono scaricare nuove versioni del codice Bitcoin Core. Ma è di proprietà privata e centralizzata. Egli suggerisce di spostarlo in un’organizzazione.

„Bitcoin è abbastanza diverso in alcuni dei requisiti qui da altri progetti [software libero e open-source], quindi dovremo sviluppare alcuni strumenti mentre andiamo“, ha scritto van der Laan. „Potremmo anche, sicuramente, usare un po‘ di aiuto qui“.

Ha chiesto ad altri sviluppatori di farsi avanti per prendere il suo posto come leader della riunione settimanale di sviluppo di Bitcoin Core, dove gli sviluppatori discutono i prossimi passi urgenti.

Bitcoin is a bubble – Bank of America is lashing out at BTC

admin, · Kategorien: Bitcoin

Bitcoin is gaining more and more supporters and recognition, but not across the board. The Bank of America wrote Bitcoin “blows the doors off prior bubbles” and thus strikes against the leading cryptocurrency.

Michael Hartnett, the chief investment strategist at Bank of America, found clear words about the current situation. As a result, a multitude of indicators created a “toxic brew in 2021”. The fact is, about $ 10 billion went into stocks, 29 billion into cash, and 1.5 billion into gold last week, according to the bank’s data. At the same time, Bitcoin’s market capitalization increased by around $ 133 billion, and the good people at Bank of America obviously don’t like that at all.

Even if it is not clear how much money actually went into Bitcoin, it was certainly a lot. GrayScale alone reported at the end of December that around half a billion dollars a week found their way into Bitcoin.

The narrative of Bitcoin as digital gold is paying off

Investors have withdrawn money from gold and invested in Bitcoin, as the digital currency obviously reacts much faster to the mass printing of money. Plus, it is increasingly adopted as a portfolio diversifier even by large companies after numerous studies concluded that Bitcoin increases risk-adjusted returns.

Instead of cash, BTC is now being held as reserves and that the banks and governments do not like this is understandable from their point of view. The blow against Bitcoin is therefore not surprising, but it puts the current development in the wrong light.

Without a doubt, the parabolic rise in the Bitcoin price can quickly be perceived as a bubble. However, the term “bubble” has negative connotations for many when it comes to investing. It implies that something is far beyond its real value and has constructed a house of cards that cannot help but collapse completely at some point. But it is not entirely correct and why I am going to explain to you now.

Why blistering is completely normal

Bitcoin is special in many ways. Above all, however, it is the market launch of the digital currency that sets it apart from what we otherwise know.

Startups such as Facebook or Google once were closed to the public in their early phase by virtue of the Securities Act 1933. That means that at this stage, where there is rapid growth and rapid appreciation, the company is not publicly traded and therefore has no price that we can all track the movement of.

However, it has a private price tag that is only accessible to well-heeled investors and banks. If this price were also shown publicly and constantly updated in real time through public trading, it would quickly become clear that the price developments of such companies also look like a huge, massive bubble. Only when the company has completed its parabolic price increase in this growth phase do early investors realize their immense profits in the form of an Initial Public Offering (IPO) in which they sell their shares to the public. So it was done on Facebook, Google, and every other public company.

So it’s not that Bitcoin is a bubble that eventually bursts and more or less disappears into nothing. Rather, it is the first time we are witnessing real, public pricing of an asset from the very beginning. We are in the phase in which the true value of the underlying valuable asset has yet to be found during its growth phase. It’s no different than with all the startups out there, only that in this case we can follow it without any problems and even have the freedom to get involved.

Bitcoin was publicly tossed on the open market with a starting price of $ 0. The market itself has decided that 1 BTC is currently worth around $ 40,000. Nobody else. The volatility, which shows in parabolic price increases and harsh corrections, only reflects the uncertainty of a free market about where the real value of the digital asset is currently to be applied. After all, that’s not that easy either, because something like Bitcoin has never been there before. So we lack accurate comparison values ​​that we can use. But Bitcoin is not a bubble that bursts and disappears at some point. On the contrary, because it is an unprecedented opportunity for the „little man“ and the „little woman“ to be there from the start and also to benefit from the parabolic growth phase. But clarifying about it is probably not in the interests of Bank of America. But in ours!

This Wall Street giant is quickly getting rid of Ripple (XRP)… and he doesn’t want to hear about it anymore!

XRP still roughed up – Bad news continues to fall for Ripple Labs and its interbank token. The investment company Grayscale has indeed just taken one more step towards the total withdrawal of XRP from its crypto funds intended for institutions.

Ripple’s XRP abandoned by Grayscale

The company Ripple Labs , issuing the XRP , accumulates trouble since the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has called its interbank token of securities ( securities ).

Among the crypto exchanges and offers offering Bitcoin Superstar, Grayscale Investments had already stopped all new subscriptions (and canceled pending ones) for its investment fund Grayscale XRP Trust.

In a new press release shared by OTC Markets, Grayscale now announces that its multi-cryptomonnaies funds – Grayscale Digital Large Cap Fund (GDLC) – contains no more XRP simply.

The decision was made on December 31, 2020. The XRP of this fund were all resold , to be replaced by the 4 other crypto-assets of the Digital Large Cap Fund. Grayscale thus bought more Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), Litecoin (LTC) and Bitcoin Cash (BCH) instead of the Ripple token.

Bet for or against Ripple , it’s possible on FTX »

The new composition of this fund (below) also always gives pride of place to bitcoins , which weigh 81.6% on their own, followed by ethers which constitute 15.9% , litecoins and other Bcash supplementing the last remaining percent.

However, XRPs accounted for only a small portion (1.4%) of the GDLC before their (final?) Withdrawal.

With this new defection, Ripple finds himself more and more isolated in the face of the SEC’s accusations. Will Grayscale go so far as to completely dissolve its XRP fund? In any case, this is the very last step that the investment company would have to take, if it wants to get rid of any risk associated with the future of XRP.

Alexander Lebedev’s cryptocurrency bank attracted over $3.5 million in investments

admin, · Kategorien: Bitcoin

DeFi-project Indefieco announced the completion of the primary distribution of 10% of the platform’s management tokens. As part of this process, partners provided liquidity in various cryptocurrencies, receiving xIDF tokens for free.

After the main launch scheduled for February 2021, holders of xIDF tokens will be able to exchange them for their proportionate share of the 1 million IDF tokens put up for distribution.

The minimum threshold (Soft Cap) of $2 million set by the organizers of the round was reached within two hours back at the launch on December 16. In the next 10 days, the project team additionally received the equivalent of $1.545 million in liquidity.

The total amount of funds provided by more than 40 partners amounted to more than $3.5 million.

According to the terms of the multilaterally audited smart contract, these assets are invested in the current DeFi-projects Indefieco with a high return, and the profits generated within 90 days will be used to prepare for the main launch.

Partners have the right to claim their funds at any time by returning the xIDF tokens received during the distribution. After 90 days, they can withdraw the liquidity provided without returning the management tokens. By default, they will start receiving income with the option to withdraw it online. Already available to Indefieco customers is the DAI Stablecoin deposit service, which provides up to 15% p.a. in U.S. dollars.

„Our relationship will be built on the basis of maximum trust in each other on this new platform, which will be the second breath of development of the cryptocurrency market,“ said Indefieco founder Alexander Lebedev.

Currently, the development team is busy preparing the main smart contract and technological solutions for the directions of the first smart contract bank in the DeFi sector, as laid down in its memorandum and white paper.

In January 2021, the developers plan to launch a bridge for Binance Smart Chain and Ethereum, which will provide Binance users near-zero commissions when working with popular DeFi projects.

Recall that Alexander Lebedev announced the creation of a large-scale „anti-bankster“ DeFi-project in September. According to him, Indefieco is designed to solve the chronic problems of the traditional financial system.

O preço do bitcoin imprime uma nova alta de 24.661 dólares

O novo recorde de todos os tempos limita um ano de ganhos para a moeda criptográfica mais valiosa do mundo.

O preço do bitcoin atingiu outro recorde histórico no dia de Natal, quebrando seu recorde intraday estabelecido há cinco dias. O valor de toda a bitcoin em circulação está agora em torno de US$ 452 bilhões.

A moeda criptográfica mais popular do mundo subiu até 4,2%, tendo chegado a um novo recorde de 24.661 dólares por moeda em um ponto na sexta-feira. No início desta semana, o preço do bitcoin caiu em quase 3.000 dólares, quando a notícia da aplicação da SEC contra o XRP e a tomada de lucros de grande volume se arrastou sobre os preços.

O novo recorde de todos os tempos limita um ano de ganhos para a moeda criptográfica mais valiosa do mundo. O comício de hoje elevou seu ganho anual até agora para quase 300%, crescendo quase cinco vezes desde os mínimos de março.

Nenhum evento parece ter empurrado o preço do bitcoin para bater novos recordes semanalmente. Mas o ressurgimento do preço em 2020 faz uma história diferente quando comparado com a primeira corrida do bitcoin no final de 2017/início de 2018. Os recordes estabelecidos há três anos foram impulsionados por investidores varejistas quando a bitcoin se tornou um investimento doméstico. Isto explica o porquê da queda de mais de 80% logo em seguida.

Os bilionários de Wall Street tornam tudo diferente

O crescente interesse de empresas de bolso profundo e de investidores ricos marca uma virada brusca. Desta vez, mais e mais instituições de Wall Street começaram a ver o Bitcoin como um porto seguro e ativo anti-inflação em um momento de incerteza causado pela pandemia do coronavírus, impulsionando a demanda para cima.

Outros fatores que apoiaram seus recentes ganhos recordes incluem o fato de o PayPal ter entrado oficialmente no mercado de moedas criptográficas. Além disso, vários grandes investidores institucionais mostraram interesse em investir em produtos vinculados à moeda criptográfica.

Os fundos e produtos em moeda criptográfica acumularam, até o momento, um fluxo de 5,24 bilhões de dólares este ano. Isto empurra os ativos sob gestão do setor para US$ 14,5 bilhões, apesar do choque econômico da pandemia do coronavírus, de acordo com os últimos números da CoinShares.

Durante todo o ano de 2020, a Grayscale Investments, com sede em Nova York, o maior gerente de crypto-fundfundo do mundo, viu US$ 4,6 bilhões em influxos de YTD, seu melhor ano de todos os tempos.

A Square Inc., uma empresa de pagamentos fundada e dirigida pelo CEO do Twitter, Jack Dorsey, também disse que a receita feita com a venda de bitcoin a seus clientes da Cash App quase dobrou, chegando a um total de US$ 1,63 bilhões em comparação com os US$ 875 milhões do trimestre anterior. Este valor também marca um aumento de 1100% em relação ao montante reportado no mesmo período em 2019.

A diretora financeira da Square, Amrita Ahuja disse acreditar que o bitcoin tem o potencial de ser „uma moeda mais onipresente“ no futuro. Continuando, ele argumentou que à medida que a moeda criptográfica cresce em adoção, eles pretendem „aprender e participar de uma forma disciplinada“. Para uma empresa que está construindo produtos baseados em um futuro mais inclusivo, este investimento é um passo nessa jornada“.

Ahuja também acredita que a própria estrutura do bitcoin garantirá que seu valor só aumentará com o tempo.

Companies now own nearly a million Bitcoin for around $ 16 billion

admin, · Kategorien: Bitcoin

According to bitcointreasuries.com, companies now own a total of 840,000 BTC, worth more than $ 16 billion.

ETF-type funds hold over $ 10 billion, while public companies hold over $ 1.3 billion in BTC.

As more companies experiment and diversify into bitcoin, this number is likely to increase

Due to an increase in purchases, companies are now approaching a million bitcoins owned, with 840,000 BTC under corporate control. This number appears to be increasing rapidly.

It seems that almost every week new companies are allocating some of their cash reserve assets to Crypto Cash review.

This increased adoption by companies across a variety of industries and sectors may bode well for the emerging asset class and the lead cryptocurrency.

Companies now hold 842k #Bitcoin, worth over $ 16 billion

The Grayscale Bitcoin Trust is the long-time leading corporate holder, holding nearly $ 10 billion on behalf of its investors.

Grayscale regularly makes massive purchases, having bought for $ 182 million in September alone.

Grayscale currently owns over 500,000 bitcoins, which is over 2% of the entire BTC supply. This percentage could be much higher considering all the lost and unreachable BTC.

While Grayscale has been buying big bucks for some time now, the growing list of state-owned companies could point the way to widespread adoption.

Since SOEs must be openly transparent to their investors and the public, they record any substantial purchase.

Businesses Outperform Latest Bitcoin Rally

So far, investors in these companies have been extremely well rewarded. MicroStrategy is up more than 120% since early October, with a current stock price of around $ 330.

Square , the payments processing company owned by Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey, made an equally risky bet by buying $ 50 million worth of bitcoin in early October.

The firm has also seen a positive response from investors, with its share price rising about 15% since the acquisition.

Not all companies that have reported Bitcoin holdings on bitcointreasuries.com have any debt thanks to relentless buying pressure from the crypto leader.

MicroStrategy has made more than $ 300 million in profit from its purchases, and Square has made more than $ 40 million, almost double its money since the initial investment.

Two central banks from the Middle East present project report for joint CBDC

admin, · Kategorien: Bitcoin

Research into a common central bank digital currency is a novelty so far.

The central banks of two of the most powerful countries in the Middle East today released their report for a year-long joint project on central bank digital currencies (CBDC).

The result is a song of praise for blockchain technology

The Project But which in 2019 jointly by the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Saudi Arabia was launched was to explore the goal of the practical use of a digital currency, in order to „new findings in the fields of central digital currencies and To collect blockchain technology ”.

The joint research of two central banks on such a Bitcoin Trader is a novelty. In this context, the report highlights why the project name „but“ symbolizes the objective of the project:

„We chose the name Aber because it means ‚crossing borders‘ in Arabic, which reflects both the cross-border / international nature of the project and our hope that it will ‚push boundaries‘ in terms of technology.“

The project was divided into three different phases, which gradually expanded the scope of the tests to six banks. A digital currency was used that was tied to real money in order to create “greater seriousness” in the processing of payments and to make the aspect of security all the more important.

The project report concludes that the common central bank digital currency “is not only technically suitable for processing cross-border payments”, but that CBDCs “are a significant improvement over centralized payment systems in terms of resilience”.

Project But was able to meet all the basic requirements for such a payment system:

„The basic requirements were all created, including complex requirements for data protection and decentralization, as well as requirements for minimizing economic risks.“

Finally, the report made recommendations for further research into implementation. These recommendations include, on the one hand, the use of blockchain technology to improve the security of existing payment systems and „open up blockchain-based payment channels“, and on the other hand, the scope of Project But must be expanded to include partners in other regions and other financial products such as for example to include bonds.

In addition to Project Aber, other central banks have also been working on their own digital currencies in recent months. China is probably the fastest moving forward and has already created a legal framework for the digital yuan. Great Britain is meanwhile also trying to sound out the legal requirements for a digital currency, while Brazil has announced that it definitely wants to introduce its own CBDC.

The Gemini exchange tokens the Filecoin cryptovoltaic currency on the airlock.

10 November 2020, 18:44 0 1 Reading time: 1 min. Sasha Kosovan
Gemini Crypt Currency Exchange is developing Wrapped Filecoin (wFIL), a blockaded version of the Filecoin decentralised data storage platform (FIL) coin.

On its blog, Gemini said it was looking for an etheric developer who wants to integrate wFIL into its Bitcoin Billionaire own product or platform.

Once the project is complete, users will be able to convert FIL to wFIL at a ratio of 1:1. After that, wFIL can be transferred to any air address.

FIL tokens will store the Gemini custodial service with „full transparency“. The exchange claims that users will be able to check that the amount of FIL stored on the exchange equals the wFIL tokens in circulation.

The Filecoin network is „a decentralised alternative to Amazon Web Services“. In 2017, the project raised $257 million during the ICO. „The decentralised model offers a compelling alternative to existing centralised cloud services,“ Gemini says.
