Binance Suspends ETH Withdrawals Again Due To ‚Network Congestion‘

Binance has temporarily suspended Ethereum withdrawals due to „network congestion.“

A similar incident took place on February 19.

The price of ETH is currently down 23% over the week

This February 23, the exchange of cryptomonnaie Binance announced on Twitter at 9:20 GMT it had „temporarily suspended withdrawals tokens and based on ETH Ethereum due to high network congestion.“

This is the second time in a week that Bitcoin Pro has suspended its Ethereum withdrawals .

“Binance has temporarily suspended withdrawals of tokens based on $ ETH and Ethereum due to severe network congestion.

Please be assured that the funds are safe, and we apologize for any inconvenience caused.

Updates will follow ”.

A similar incident happened on February 19, when Binance also suspended withdrawals from ETH and ERC-20, citing “network congestion” as the same reason.

Binance reassured investors that their “funds are safe,” but provided no further details in the two suspension cases

During the February 19 suspension incident, blockchain analyst Larry Cermak was quick to point out that Ethereum did not appear to be congested and had found itself unable to withdraw ETH even before the announcement of the suspension.

At that time, the price of Ethereum (ETH) was at its highest level yet and was on the verge of breaking the $ 2,000 mark . Binance Coin ( BNB ) was also on the rise. However, due to this suspension, the price of ETH stagnated just below the $ 2,000 mark, while BNB jumped $ 60 during the same period.

This fueled speculation on the reasons for this suspension, including the possibility of a BNB “ wash trading ”, or market manipulation.

Ethereum’s gas charges were the subject of controversy in 2021. Knowing that transaction costs are directly proportional to network congestion, they often vary significantly.

Recently, Ethereum’s gas charges have indeed skyrocketed, with some sources reporting an average charge of $ 30.

Ethereum is currently trading at $ 1,492 after hitting an all-time high of $ 2,040 on February 20. ETH has fallen almost 24% since that peak and is back to its highest levels of early 2018.

A market-wide crash has led to huge sell-offs among crypto-investors. More than $ 5.5 billion in positions have been liquidated in the past 24 hours , according to data from Bybt.

JPMorgan har fortsatt holdning til tarm og undergang mot BTC

Bitcoin har hatt det veldig bra som sent, men det hindrer ikke økonomiske giganter i å se det i et dårlig lys. En av disse tvilerne er JPMorgan, som nylig hevdet i en ny rapport at bitcoin aldri kom til å slå $ 40.000 igjen. Verdens største digitale valuta etter markedsverdi viste seg til slutt at selskapet tok feil og handler i skrivende stund for mer enn $ 52 000 per enhet.

JPMorgan tror ting vil gå galt med BTC

Nå har JPMorgan utstedt en uttalelse som hevder at hvis valutaen fortsetter å rulle som den er, vil ting bli dårlige for handelsmenn. Firmaet kunngjør at mengden risiko forbundet med Bitcoin Billionaire er satt til å øke til enestående nivåer gitt ting ikke roer seg litt i løpet av de kommende ukene.

Interessant, dette er det motsatte følelsen av figurer som Anthony Pompliano, en medstifter og partner i Morgan Creek Digital. I et nylig intervju hevdet han at bitcoin lett kunne treffe $ 500 000 per enhet innen utgangen av 2029, og at han fullt ut tror eiendelen til slutt vil nå $ 1 million, selv om han ikke har gitt noen dato for når han tror dette vil skje.

Uansett er han bullish når det gjelder bitcoin, og sier:

Jeg tror at bitcoin til slutt vil stige til å bli den globale reservevalutaen. Jeg tror bitcoin til slutt vil bli mye, mye større enn gullmarkedsverdien … Det var billioner av dollar som ble trykt og injisert i økonomien, og alle fra enkeltpersoner til finansinstitusjoner og selskaper løp rundt i verden på jakt etter den beste måten å beskytte deres kjøpekraft. De bestemte til slutt at det var bitcoin.

I tillegg sier han at bitcoins mangel på sentralisering vil bidra til å drive nettverket ytterligere, og at flere sannsynligvis vil bli involvert i de kommende månedene. Han sier:

Etter hvert som flere og flere kommer inn i markedet, er det mer likviditet. Ettersom det er mer likviditet, er det mer nytteverdi. Ettersom det er mer verktøy, er det mer stabilitet i prisen … Du får en slags evolusjon. Hvis du tenker på den internettøkonomien, er det ingen innfødt valuta … [Bitcoin] vil til slutt ta det setet i kongeriket for å være den globale reservevalutaen til internettgenerasjonen.

Legge tvil til ligningen

Til tross for alt dette, tar JPMorgan fremdeles veldig inn en dysterhet og undergang, og siterer valutaens pågående volatilitet som et stort problem for handelsmenn og investorer overalt. Nikolaos Panigirtzoglou – global markedsstrateg i JPMorgan – forklarte i en uttalelse:

Den største risikoen er at strømningsimpulsen vi har sett de siste månedene, avtar vesentlig herfra. Når økonomiene åpnes igjen, går folk tilbake til kontoret, de har kortere tid til å handle hjemme, og som et resultat avtar noe av den detaljiststrømimpulsen herfra.

Bitcoin, “digital gold” according to the CEO of VISA – Cryptocurrencies coming soon?

One more step into the cryptosphere – After PayPal, it is now Visa that wants to impose itself in the cryptocurrency sector. The $ 451 billion company is preparing to open its network to stablecoins … but also to traditional cryptocurrencies ?

Growing interest in cryptocurrencies …

The global giant VISA already has a foothold in the cryptocurrency sector, thanks to several partnerships with CeFi (centralized finance) platforms . Among them are BlockFi, Fold, and Crypto.com , which issue products bearing the VISA mark.

But this time, its CEO, Alfred Kelly , suggests that cryptomonnaies could work directly on the VISA network in the future. Current crypto cards actually work in 2 stages . When a customer uses one of their cards at a merchant, the cryptocurrency itself does not interact with the network. In reality, the platform sells an equivalent amount of crypto, and VISA processes the payment in fiat.

With the recent announcement of the introduction of the USDC on its network, VISA now seems to want to push this innovation to the limit.

“As a specific digital currency becomes a recognized medium of exchange, there is no reason why we cannot add it to our network, which already supports over 160 currencies today. “

… but careful integration

However, Alfred Kelly is not entirely convinced of the merits of a wider use of cryptocurrencies. Indeed, the payments veteran said that if bitcoin is one of the most widely used and well-known cryptos , it is because it functions like ‚digital gold‘ .

Either way, that may soon change . At a company meeting in the first quarter of 2021, the latter said that VISA could make the cryptocurrency market more secure and useful for its millions of customers around the world. The payments manager also said that stablecoins could be used for global trade.

Prawnicy celują w rosyjskie ustawodawstwo dotyczące kryptowalut

Rosyjscy eksperci prawni skrytykowali krajowe przepisy dotyczące kryptowalut, sugerując, że sądy w kraju borykały się z problemami kryptograficznymi w przeszłości – i sugerując, że ostatnie prawodawstwo mogło zrobić niewiele, aby usunąć mgłę prawną związaną ze sposobem nadzorowania tokenów.

Według raportu Crypto Bank, niedawno ogłoszone rosyjskie przepisy dotyczące statusu prawnego i podatkowego kryptowalut zostały zaprojektowane, aby uchronić sądy przed grzęzawiskiem prawnym, w którym widziano przypadki, w których sędziowie oszacowali cenę kryptowalut osób fizycznych, obliczając wartość urządzenia pamięci flash, na których były przechowywane.

Jednak dwóch prawników przemawiających do mediów twierdzi, że nowe przepisy nie pomogły sądownictwu zbytnio – jeśli w ogóle

Angelika Matushkina, ekspert prawny z Moskiewskiej Szkoły Cyfrowej , ostrzegła, że ​​handlowcy, którzy otrzymują dekret za sprzedaż swoich funduszy, nadal uważają ten proces za „problematyczny” w kontaktach z bankami.

Banki wydają się być zdezorientowane, jak powinny radzić sobie z kryptowalutami, a wiele z nich stara się uniknąć kłopotów ze strony władz – podejmując drakońskie środki.

Matushkina twierdziła, że ​​transakcje związane z kryptowalutami można „zablokować”, a konta „zamrozić”

Doradziła handlowcom, aby organizowali wstępne spotkania z menedżerami banków w celu omówienia wymagań i dokumentów potrzebnych do zarejestrowania dochodu ze sprzedaży kryptowalut, aby zachować zgodność z nowymi przepisami podatkowymi dotyczącymi deklarowania funduszy kryptograficznych. Ostrzegła, że ​​w przeciwnym razie handlowcy mogą „napotkać problemy ze strony [regulacyjnej] Federalnej Służby Monitorowania Finansów (Rosfinmonitoring) lub bankowych zespołów ds. Zgodności.

Te same media cytują Marię Agranovską, partnera zarządzającego i prawnika z branży fintech w rosyjskim radcy prawnym GRAD , która stwierdziła, że ​​nowe przepisy były „czymś rozczarowującym”, ponieważ pierwotnie miały na celu „zapewnienie podstawy legalnej działalności wszystkich uczestników rynku, aby uporządkować odmienne praktyki stosowane przez sądy i umożliwić bankom pracę przy projektach kryptowalut ”- coś, czego Moskwie do tej pory nie udało się zrobić w oczach wielu prawników.

Perché la sessione asiatica detiene la chiave del calo del prezzo di Bitcoin

Il prezzo di Bitcoin sembrava essersi ripreso mentre rimbalzava dall’apertura annuale a 28.956 dollari.

Tuttavia, gli indicatori on-chain suggeriscono che questa espansione è stata un colpo di fortuna. Infatti, gli acquirenti senza volume reale o slancio stanno cercando di spingere il prezzo più in alto sui grafici.

Il primo segno di resistenza ha indebolito il già debole slancio di questi compratori, e lo stesso ha contribuito a una continuazione della tendenza al ribasso. Altri di questi sell-off potrebbero essere in arrivo per due motivi,

Indicatori a catena
L’inizio della sessione asiatica

Indicatori On-chain di Bitcoin

Come accennato nell’articolo di ieri, Bitcoin era destinato ad una correzione e ad un retest dell’apertura annuale. Ora, gli indicatori on-chain, più precisamente l’indicatore Coinbase Premium di CryptoQuant, sta indicando altri cali per la criptovaluta pioniera del mercato.

Il „premio Coinbase“ è una metrica on-chain che è il rapporto tra il prezzo BTC/USD di Coinbase e il prezzo BTC/USDT di Binance. Questo rapporto aiuta a determinare se il BTC viene scambiato con un premio o meno.

Un premio elevato mette in evidenza gli alti afflussi spot e suggerisce che gli investitori vogliono comprare, quindi è un segnale rialzista. Al momento della stampa, nonostante il rimbalzo dal minimo annuale, questo premio non era aumentato ed era ancora in negativo, suggerendo che i venditori erano ancora in controllo del mercato e che il calo non era ancora finito.

Il CEO di CryptoQuant Ki Young Ju ha commentato anche questo premio, affermando,

„Era sempre sopra i +$50 quando BTC stava per rompere 20k, 30k, e 40k, il che significa che c’erano enormi afflussi spot da parte di individui con alto patrimonio netto e investitori istituzionali in Coinbase“.

Bitcoin: punto di vista tecnico

Come accennato in precedenza, la prima vista di resistenza è stata la linea mediana del canale parallelo. Un rifiuto qui imposta il prezzo per un altro tocco dell’apertura annuale a 28.956 dollari. Questo ha ulteriormente supportato la visione ribassista della metrica on-chain.

Un caso ribassista sarà la violazione del supporto immediato a $28.956, che aprirebbe il prezzo a cali fino a $20.000 in uno scenario estremamente ribassista.

Altri supporti che possono evitare che il prezzo scenda a 20.000 dollari includono la tasca di liquidità che va da 29.800 a 27.600 dollari. Dopo questo range c’è il livello del 50% di Fibonacci a 25.850 dollari, un livello che sembra essere la principale area di supporto e la prossima destinazione per il calo di Bitcoin.

La sessione asiatica

Le sessioni asiatiche che vanno dalle 23:00 GMT alle 8:00 GMT sono quelle in cui i trader dell’est iniziano a fare trading. Quindi, l’alta volatilità è solitamente sperimentata durante questo periodo. Inoltre, la sessione asiatica è nota per essere estremamente ribassista e la maggior parte dei cali avviene durante questa sessione.

Alla luce del fatto che il calo di ieri ha accompagnato la sessione statunitense, ci si può aspettare che Bitcoin scenda di più quando la sessione asiatica è in pieno svolgimento, sostenendo ulteriormente le prospettive ribassiste sui grafici.

Bitcoin: it’s a record for price and market cap

We are starting to run out of adjectives to comment and describe the trend of Bitcoin that since mid-December has started a race that seems to know no more stops and that marks new records for price and market cap.

22 days have passed since December 16 when the price of Bitcoin broke the wall of 20,000 dollars, disintegrating the previous historical record. In this period as many as 14 days, i.e. more than half, have recorded new absolute records setting a rise from 18,000 to more than 37,000 USD, doubling the price of a Bitcoin in less than a month.

A trend greater than the previous dazzling rally between November and December 2017. A parallelism that day after day exalted the current rise relegating to memories what happened exactly three years ago.

The drop at the beginning of the week – January 4 – which saw the price of Bitcoin lose just under 20% in less than 24 hours causing a loss of over 6,300 USD, the worst daily descent in history, did not frighten investors who went back to buying again making the price rise.

A few minutes after the start of the day (calculated on the CET time zone of London+1) the price of Bitcoin marked a new all-time record at 37,720 USD, dragging behind the rise also of Ethereum, which updates the highest record of the last three years at 1,225 USD, as well as most of the Altcoins.

It’s a choral rise that shuffles the top ten capitalized charts. The head-to-head for third position between Ripple (XRP) and Litecoin (LTC) continues with XRP up more than 30% in less than 24 hours takes the podium of the day’s best, led by Stellar (XLM).

With a flight of over 60% and price one step away from 42 cents, the highest level since May 2018, Stellar rises to 10th position undermining Binance Coin (BNB).

Among the best shines Cardano (ADA) which recovers 35 cents on the dollar with a rise of more than 20% from yesterday morning’s levels, conquering for the first time the 5th position in the ranking, bypassing Bitcoin Cash (BCH). Not enough is the rise to 460 USD of BCH, which has gained just over 25% since the beginning of the year.

Bitcoin: the price brings the market cap to an all-time high

The rise of the last few hours raises the total market capitalization for the first time above $1 trillion. In one year – since January 1, 2020 – the market cap of the entire sector has multiplied five times.

Credit to Bitcoin, which occupies about 69% of the market share and a capitalization that in these hours reaches $700 billion, doubling the previous peak in December 2017.

The recent climb in the price of Ethereum pushes the capitalization to $135 billion, beyond the previous record reached in January 2018. Despite this, Ethereum’s market share loses a few decimals from its highest peak in two years of 14% recorded yesterday. XRP tries to rise again from last week’s quicksand, returning over 1.3%.

DeFi: TVL at $21 billion

Despite the number of tokens used as collateral continuing to be withdrawn from decentralized platforms, the increase in token value raises Total Value Locked (TVL) over $21 billion, a new record.

Leading Maker climbs above $4 billion for the first time in its history, sending MKR governance token quotes soaring above $1,200 USD, the highest level since the launch of quotes occurred in May 2018. Aave retains the second position followed by Uniswap which continues its head-to-head with Compound.

Bitcoin (BTC)

Third day on the rise for Bitcoin which registers a new all-time high just a step away from $38,000. It’s a rise that since Monday, Jan. 4, sees Bitcoin prices gain about 24% in 4 days.

The rise at the beginning of the day also coincided with some profit-taking that currently brings Bitcoin prices back below $36,500, without worrying the strong uptrend that has been characterizing Bitcoin’s performance since mid-December.

Volumes explode and yesterday they record the highest peak for exchanges on the main exchanges with over 13.3 billion dollars, an all-time record for exchanges in counter value in dollars. This marks the particular moment of Bitcoin that sees a smaller amount of Bitcoin change hands, for a countervalue that marks absolute historical records. In these first 6 days of 2021, January 1 alone saw trades below $10 billion.

On a technical level, Bitcoin prices are moving away from the first short-term support area that from $30,000 now moves to $32,600, the area of 25% of the Fibonacci retracement calculated from the mid-December minimum to the highs recorded a few hours ago.

Only a drop below this threshold would give a warning signal in the short term, while in the medium term the warning level is far away, which in these hours passes just below $29,000, an area more than 20% away from current levels.

Ethereum (ETH) price

The strong rise sees the price of Ethereum mark a vertical ascent from the lows of January 2, with the value gaining over 70% in five days bringing capitalizations back above $1,200 for the first time since late January 2018.

For Ethereum, the consolidation of the trend built in recent months is finding the explosion in these days with support levels in a medium to long term perspective increasingly distant. At the same time, this strong movement of these last 5 days, +75%, gives ETH ample room for movement in a short-term perspective, as happened in recent weeks for Bitcoin.

These strong movements should increase attention and caution for shocks that in an intraday perspective could develop even in double digits with greater evidence than what happened last Monday with a movement that saw prices fluctuate by more than 25% in just over two hours.

The current bullish structure definitely removes the risk of endangering the trend of medium to long term. The first warning signal would arrive with prices just over 700 dollars, a level about 50% away from the current quotations.

Palmeiras advisors are targets of attempted hacker attack asking for R$ 300,000 in Bitcoin

Palmeiras suffers an attempt at extortion with Bitcoin similar to that suffered by rival São Paulo in 2019.

Palmeiras board members are targets of attempted hacker attack for R$300,000 in BitcoinNOTÍCIAS
Board members of one of Brazil’s biggest football clubs, Sociedade Esportiva Palmeiras, were the target of an attempted extortion with Bitcoins this week, according to Esporte Interativo.

According to the report, on Christmas Eve, December 24, 285 board members of the club received an e-mail requiring payment of R$ 1,050 in Bitcoin to prevent the leak of confidential information.

The hacker signed the e-mails as Edward Lorenz, the same pseudonym used in a similar attack on Palmeiras‘ rival in São Paulo’s capital, São Paulo Futebol Clube, in 2019.

The e-mail was entitled „Balanços e Documentos do Palmeiras“ (Balance Sheets and Documents of the Palmeiras), containing a list of the counselors‘ data, supposedly to attest that the hacker had gained access to sensitive documents.

In addition to requesting the payment of a ransom in Bitcoin, the criminal also indicated means to „exchange money for Bitcoin“, listing exchanges such as Mercado Bitcoin, Foxbit, LocalBitcoins, Coinbase, among others.

The indicated portfolio would have already been used for another Bitcoin scam, having received R$ 96,481 according to blockchain data.

The Palmeiras board says it will investigate the case and that it has already called the police. A message exchanged by the directors recommends that they do not open the e-mail and do not make any kind of deposit:

„Attention SEP Counsellor! We are suffering attacks from a blackmailer. Do not open any e-mail or file coming from Edward Lorenz and DO NOT DEPOSIT ANY MONEY!“

The pseudonym used by the hacker, Edward Lorenz, makes reference to the meteorologist who created the thesis of the „Butterfly Effect“ in the Chaos Theory, deceased in 2008. In the attack suffered by São Paulo on November 22, 2019, the criminal asked for payment of $ 1 million in total for the directors of the club, while in the case of alviverde the request comes close to $ 300,000 with all directors.

The year 2020 was marked by a series of ransomware attacks in Brazil and worldwide. In the most serious cases, the hackers got access to the Superior Electoral Court of Brazil, in addition to the Ministry of Health and the Superior Court of Justice.

Salausvaihto-jättiläinen Coinbase vihjaa julkiseen markkinointiin bitcoin-hintojen noustessa

Kun bitcoinin hinta nousee kaikkien aikojen korkeimpiin kohtiin, tunnetuin kryptovaluutanvaihto Coinbase on ilmoittanut aikomuksestaan ​​tulla julkiseksi.

Yhdysvaltain salausvaihtojätti Coinbase toimitti äskettäin rekisteröintiluonnoksen Arvopaperipörssi-komissiossa ja vahvisti huhutut suunnitelmat julkisen listautumisannin kanssa, jonka analyytikot arvioivat olevan arvoltaan jopa 28 miljardia dollaria. Coinbase ilmoitti jättäneensä rekisteröintilausuntoluonnoksen SEC: lle, mikä tasoitti tietä mahdolliselle alkutarjoukselle. Ilmoitus tulee siitä, että kiinnostus bitcoiniin ja muihin kryptovaluuttoihin on noussut uusille korkeuksille koronaviruspandemian aikana.

Coinbasen arvon odotetaan olevan noin 28 miljardia dollaria

Messari Crypto -tutkija Mira Christanto on sukelnut syvälle joihinkin salauspörssin liiketoiminta- ja kaupankäyntitietoihin ja saavuttanut potentiaalisen 28 miljardin dollarin arvon. Mirar Christanio totesi : „Coinbasen IPO-ilmoituksen jälkeen arvostamme yritystä 28 miljardiin dollariin. Coinbase on yksi merkittävimmistä pörsseistä, ja sen päivittäinen volyymi on miljardi dollaria 20.12. “ Tutkija lisäsi, että arvostuksen johtamiseen käytetty malli jakoi yrityksen liiketoimintasegmentit kaupankäyntimaksuilla, säilytyspalkkioilla, maksukorteilla ja muilla kriteereillä. Kaupankäyntimäärät tulevat ensisijaisesti institutionaalisilta asiakkailta, hän lisäsi, mutta keskimääräinen omistusosuus asiakasta kohden on 703 dollaria.

Bitcoin on edelleen kaikkien aikojen korkeimmillaan

Bitcoinin hinta on kaikkien aikojen korkeimmillaan sen jälkeen, kun johtava kryptovaluutta nousi keskiviikkona 20 000 dollarin esteen yläpuolelle ensimmäistä kertaa historiansa aikana. Kirjoitushetkellä bitcoin vaihtaa omistajaa hieman yli 23 000 dollaria. On olemassa useita tekijöitä, jotka auttoivat bitcoinia lisäämään uusia kaikkien aikojen korkeimpia kohtia. Institutionaalinen kiinnostus bitcoinia kohtaan on lisännyt vuotta suojauksena perinteisiä varoja vastaan. MicroStrategy, Bitwise ja Harmaasävy ovat kaikki nousussa investointien, hallinnoitavien varojen ja rahastojen osakekurssien suhteen, kun Bitcoin saavutti ennätyksellisen huippuhinnan tällä viikolla.

Apple co-founder Steve Wozniack goes shitcoin with green blockchain project

Wozniack, the new crypto-green – That’s it! The rise in the price of bitcoin has reignited the hype around cryptocurrencies. Indeed, even the co-founder of Apple, Steve Wozniack, embarks on the creation of a cryptocurrency: the WOZX.

The revolution by Wozniack

The news broke over the weekend, with the publication of the EFFORCE project white paper .

This initiative was launched by Steve Wozniack , Jacopo Vanetti, Andrea Castiglione, Jacopo Visetti and the company AitherCO2.

Concretely, EFFORCE presents itself as a future platform for exchange on energy savings . It would give companies wishing to improve their energy performance the opportunity to finance these improvements.

Thus, users called “contributors” could ultimately finance projects aimed at minimizing the negative impacts of energy consumption. Subsequently, the savings made are supposed to be redistributed to the contributors in the form of tokens.

“ The platform brings together those who want to improve the energy efficiency of their buildings or industrial processes, with a group of contributors interested in reimbursement in tokens representing the energy savings achieved through efficiency improvement projects. “

In total, it looks like 1 billion Bitcoin Machine tokens will be created. A fifth of these tokens will be set aside to encourage participants to take part in the funding.

Project of the year… or shitcoin?

Obviously, when we read “energy saving” and “Wozniack” , we have something to be excited about by this project. However, behind the scenes is quite different.

Indeed, this one has everything of a good big old-style bullshit blockchain . First of all, the 54-page white paper (just that) explains many marketing aspects, but remains fairly elusive on the technical aspects .

Then, the project has for the moment been only listed on the HBTC exchange platform and soon on Bithumb , later this week . It therefore seems that Wozniack’s crypto is of little interest to giants, like Binance or Coinbase – even if this interest alone would have been far from meaning that a blank check was given to the project .

Finally, Steve Wozniack met with Justin Sun , CEO of Tron, to discuss the project earlier this year, which in and of itself means nothing concrete. However, we are familiar with Justin Sun’s practices, as well as his discussed personality. He is probably not the best person in the ecosystem to talk to when you claim to launch a “revolutionary” project.

Blockchain-puremat: Buterinin osuus, Googlen Bitcoin-haut, Squaren vilkas BTC-liiketoiminta

Cash App tuotti yli miljardin dollarin bitcoin-tuloja Squareille kolmannella vuosineljänneksellä. Vitalik Buterin lähetti 3 200 ETH Ethereum 2.0: n talletussopimukseen.

Google-hakutiedoissa näkyy vähän „FOMOa“ nykyisen markkinapullon keskellä

Cash App, Square-mobiilimaksupalvelu (Twitterin toimitusjohtajan Jack Dorseyn johdolla), tuotti 1,63 miljardia dollaria bitcoin-tuloja ja 32 miljoonaa dollaria Bitcoinissa (BTC, + 3,55%) Square-tuotosta vuoden 2020 kolmannen neljänneksen mukaan. yhtiön Q3-sijoittajakirjeeseen. Tämä on 11 kertaa enemmän bitcoin-tuloja kuin Q2: n 875 miljoonaa dollaria, kun Square voitti 17 miljoonaa dollaria bitcoinin myynnistä. Silti Squaren bitcoin-liiketoiminnalla on suhteellisen kesyttäviä voittoja rahapalvelualalla, ja voittomarginaalit ovat ujo 2%. Ansaintapuhelussa Dorsey sanoi: „Uskomme, että [bitcoin] on Internetin äidinkieli ja auttaa ihmisiä menestymään ympäri maailmaa ja taloutta.“

Buterinin osuus

Ethereumin perustaja Vitalik Buterin on lähettänyt 3200 eetteriä , arvoltaan noin 1,4 miljoonaa dollaria, Ethereum 2.0: n äskettäin käynnistettyyn talletussopimukseen. Ethereum 2.0 etenee siirtymisessä osuuden todistamiseen, mikä etenee seuraavaan valmiusvaiheeseen, kun sopimukseen on liitetty 524 288 eetteriä. Talletussopimuksessa on nyt 38 693 eetteriä, arvoltaan noin 17 miljoonaa dollaria. Toimialajulkaisu TrustedNodes kertoo, että Buterinin “VB2” -osoite lähetti yhteensä 100 tapahtumaa.

Etelä-Korean VASP Financial Services Commission (FSC) hakee lakimuutoksia, jotka tekisivät pakolliseksi virtuaalisen omaisuuden palveluntarjoajien (yleensä varastonhoitajien, lompakon tarjoajien tai välittäjien) ilmoittaakseen asiakkaidensa nimet maassa . Muutos on osa suurempaa lakaista, joka vaikuttaa useimpiin rahapalveluihin (lahjakorteista sähköisesti rekisteröityihin osakkeisiin) rahanpesun estämiseksi.

Identiteetti

Useat espanjalaiset yritykset, mukaan lukien Banco Santander, ovat ryhmitelleet kehittääkseen „itse hallinnoidun“ digitaalisen identiteetin järjestelmän, joka käyttää lohkoketjutekniikkaa. Organisaatio, Dalion, sanoi, että „turvallista ja luotettavaa“ henkilöllisyystodistusta voitaisiin käyttää autonvuokrauksessa, vakuutus- ja lainasovelluksissa sekä palvelujen tarjoajien rekisteröinnissä. Suunniteltu antamaan käyttäjille hallita henkilökohtaisia ​​tietoja, se myös virtaviivaistaa „tylsiä“ lomakkeiden täyttämistä toimittamalla automaattisesti pyytävän yksikön tarvitsemat validoidut tiedot. Käyttämällä Quorum-lohkoketjua ryhmä sanoi, että tiedot eivät ole muuttuneet. Järjestelmä voisi ottaa käyttöön toukokuussa 2021.
