Polkadot and Ethereum are meant to coexist, according to Gavin Wood

Polkadot (DOT) founder Gavin Wood has expressed his ambition for the project. And he doesn’t particularly see Ethereum as a competitor …

Ethereum and Polkadot, brought to coexist?

As a reminder, before being the creator of Polkadot, Gavin Wood is the founder of Ethereum. This is why he was asked about the subject during the Polkadot Summit which took place yesterday. Wood explains the positioning of Polkadot, which he considers to be “ a bet against the maximalism of blockchains“ . According to him, building Bitcoin Bank as a single blockchain that would cover all the needs is not a good idea. He believes that the strength of the ecosystem is precisely interoperability, which is Polkadot’s credo:

“If Ethereum becomes a chain to be bridged with, I think there is a very good chance that Polkadot and Ethereum will coexist . “

Polkadot, a threat to Ethereum?

The Polkadot project has in any case seen a breakthrough this year , with a fanfare arrival in the top 10 cryptocurrency by capitalization, thanks to several successful token sales . And beyond the economic factors, the project has attracted many developers thanks to its promise: that of creating interconnected environments.

The DOT price therefore logically reflected this nascent enthusiasm… At least until the end of November. The DOT price followed the Bitcoin bull run (BTC), approaching its all-time high at over $ 6 a week and a half ago. But it had plummeted very sharply, losing -21% in the space of a day:

Since then, the price has managed to bounce back, even if it does not reach levels similar to ten days ago. However, it takes + 9 % over the week . Today, the capitalization of DOT stands at nearly $ 5 billion.

Bitcoin released in the Netherlands after approval of first retail-oriented crypto platform

Dutch investors can now invest in crypto assets, thanks to a new company registration approved by regulators

The BLOX exchange received authorisation to operate in the Netherlands, becoming the first platform to do so since the country implemented the 5th EU Anti-Money Laundering Directive, or AMLD5.

„BLOX is the first consumer-focused cryptomaniac company to be included in the Dutch Central Bank’s registry,“ the company said in a blog announcement today. „This registration is mandatory in the Netherlands for all companies that allow their users to buy, sell, trade and maintain cryptomoeda.

Dutch-based crypto service provider AMDAX BV made headlines in October as the inaugural company of its kind in the newly regulated region.

AMDAX, however, markets to larger investors. „AMDAX supports companies and private investors with a portfolio – starting with 2.5 Bitcoin investments – trading crypto, safe storage and insured custody,“ an October AMDAX statement said at Finextra.

Visible on a list of approved crypto service providers, Cryptosoft now proclaims the registration of De Nederlandsche Bank NV, the central bank of the Netherlands.

„BLOX allows consumers to invest in their favourite digital currency for just $1,“ explained the company’s blog. „Therefore, the Dutch Central Bank’s approval means that the crypto currency will remain widely accessible to the general public.

In contrast to the three recently approved entities, the Deribit digital asset derivatives exchange left the Netherlands in January 2020 to avoid the new regulations.

 

BITCOIN UKENTLIG UTSIKT: FORVENT KOPIERINGSHANDELER NÆR 16.000 USD

De siste ukene så en rekke Bitcoin-analytikere som ba om en oksekjøring mot $ 16 000, et nivå som den sist testet i januar 2017 under en korrigerende nedadgående trend fra rekordhøye nær $ 20 000.

Kryptovalutaen brøt 16 000 dollar 11. november 2020. Noen handelsmenn solgte av seg sine posisjoner nær nivået, noe som fikk Bitcoin til å korrigere under den. Ikke desto mindre møtte ethvert forsøk på å dumpe prisen under $ 15 000 med stor kjøpsetterspørsel fra handelsmenn med middels til lang sikt. Derfor gjenvunnet Bitcoin $ 16.000 igjen.

Handelsmenn har nektet å gi opp nivået siden den gang. Det ser ut som nyfunnet støtte som kan drive Bitcoin-prisen ytterligere høyere. På kort sikt er det usikkerheten som er ledet av et økende antall koronavirusinfeksjoner i USA, som støtter opp og ned.

CORONAVIRUS I FOKUS

Folk forventer at regjeringen vil innføre strenge sosiale distanseringstiltak som er i konflikt med virksomheter som er avhengige av nær-menneskelig interaksjon. Dette kan hemme Donald Trump-administrasjonens planer om å åpne den amerikanske økonomien på nytt, og dermed hindre en nylig gjenoppretting av ledighetsdata og andre amerikanske økonomisektorer.

I mellomtiden kan en forverret pandemi øke etterspørselen etter den andre hjelpepakken for coronavirus. Federal Reserves styreformann Jerome Powell advarte i det siste embetsmøtet om at deres kontor ikke kunne fortsette med ultra lave renter og uendelig obligasjonskjøp uten stimulans.

Lettelsesregningen har sittet fast i flere måneder på grunn av mangel på topartsskap mellom det demokratstyrte representanthuset og det flertall-republikanske senatet.

En pågående avrenning for to Georgia Senatseter er nå hovedfokus. Skulle Joe Biden-ledede demokrater vinne begge deler, ville deres kontroll over senatet gjøre det lettere å passere den andre koronaviruspakken.

Hvis ikke, er den eneste økonomiske håpet i den amerikanske økonomien vaksinen, spesielt etter Pfizer og dets farmasøytiske partner BioNTechs kunngjøring forrige uke. De hevdet at deres eksperimentelle COVID-19 viste 90 prosent effekt.

Begge de grunnleggende driverne utlignet hverandre. Det gjør at investorer kan holde seg sikret i eiendeler som har minst korrelasjon med de makroøkonomiske hendelsene.

Som et resultat gjør Bitcoin det bedre enn de fleste av sine rivaler med trygt tilfluktssted.

Kryptovalutaen steg utrolig høyere mot vaksinenyhetene. På den annen side loggførte toppkonkurransegullet sin verste enkeltdagsprestasjon på ti år. Kryptovalutaen forventer nå å handle forsiktig nær $ 16.000 til ytterligere klarhet fra det amerikanske politiske og økonomiske rommet.

BITCOIN I UKEN

Teknisk sett er Bitcoin i en blindgate nær $ 16,156 basert på en Fibonacci retracement-graf tegnet fra en svinghøyde på $ 19.697 til en svingnedsettelse på $ 3.153. Den koronavirusinduserte markedsusikkerheten kan få handelsmenn til å selge den lokale toppen og målrette lavere nivåer for gjenakkumulering.

Å miste $ 16.000 på dette stadiet vil bety en utvidet nedadrettelse mot $ 15.000 eller lavere.

Å holde den på samme tid ville fjerne løpet mot $ 17.000 eller høyere. Men med to utlignende grunnleggende forhold og det amerikanske presidentvalget bakover, har Bitcoin flere grunner til å vente og se på enn det har å fortsette sin oppadgående trend mot en annen årlig høyde.

Crypto currencies will be useful but Bitcoin is hard to understand, says SoftBank CEO

Son Masayoshi believes that Bitcoin was „distracting his attention from his own business“.

While the current upward trend in cryptomonies is driving their adoption, some billionaire investors still believe that Bitcoin (BTC) is a kind of distraction.

The number of new Bitcoin addresses is increasing amidst the hype about cryptomonics
Masayoshi Son, a multi-million dollar technology entrepreneur and CEO of the Japanese conglomerate SoftBank, said he „doesn’t understand“ Bitcoin in the midst of cryptomongering breaking its three-year high.

Speaking at the New York Times DealBook conference, Son said he thinks investing in Bitcoin „distracts from his own business focus,“ Business Insider reported on November 19.

Son said he would spend about five minutes each day watching Bitcoin prices fluctuate. He said a friend told him to invest „1% of his personal assets“ in Bitcoin, which means he invested „about $200 million.

Bitcoin’s price has reached $18,000, but traders expect a ’slight‘ decline before a new high
The billionaire admitted that the recurring distraction led him to sell his entire holding company in Bitcoin, causing him to lose about $50 million. „I feel much better,“ Son said.

Son stated that digital currencies are a useful development and will not disappear soon, but will focus on other projects. He commented:

„I think digital currency will be useful […] But I don’t know what digital currency, what structure, etc.“
It was reported that Son bought Bitcoin when it was near its historic high of $20,000 in December 2017. As previously reported, Son allegedly lost millions when it sold the cryptcoin in early 2018, when the price of Bitcoin began to plummet.

Bitcoin’s first company-sponsored retirement plans are launched in the U.S.
Son’s latest comments come amid a major upward trend in the cryptomone markets, with Bitcoin slowly approaching $20,000. At the time of publication, Bitcoin is trading at $18,227.

New York Airport uses blockchain app for cleanliness to combat corona

A New York airport uses a blockchain app to provide travelers with information about the cleanliness of surfaces.

In the course of the Corona crisis, the airport in Albany, New York, USA, is using the “Wellness Trace App” to check the cleanliness of surfaces and objects at Albany Airport

The app, which emerged from a collaboration between General Electric (GE), TE-FOOD and Eurofins, is intended to make travel safe even in times of the corona pandemic. The blockchain system from Microsoft Azure serves as the basic framework.

The blockchain app provides travelers with information about the cleanliness of objects and surfaces in advance, even before they come into contact with them. All the travelers have to do is scan in QR codes with their smartphones, which are located all over the airport.

In addition, users can enter their personal impression of the cleanliness of a respective surface in the app and save it for others

As Albany Airport states, the experiment with the app will initially run for three months, with airport employees being tasked with using the app to ensure proper cleanliness in and around the airport in accordance with Corona regulations. To make the relevant information accessible, more than 45 stickers with the corresponding QR codes were distributed.

Philip Calderone, CEO of Albany Airport Regulators, said that „using the innovative GE Wellness Trace app is a big step in enabling safe travel in times of pandemic through digital solutions“.

Other countries are now also using blockchain technology to fight the coronavirus.

For example, a city in Singapore uses blockchain technology to issue a digital health passport. Thanks to the joint project by SGInnovate and Accredify, the pandemic could be contained even better.

The Singapore-based company Perlin has another project, the block chain-based smartphone app „ICC AOKpass“ developed , which in turn facilitates the communication of the infection status.

Bitcoin News Today – Nagłówki na 29 września

  • Analitycy uważają, że Bitcoin jest na skraju wybuchu.
  • Bitcoin nadal wykazuje korelację ze złotem i S&P 500

Analitycy zwracają uwagę na kilka czynników, które mogą spowodować wzrost ceny Bitcoina w najbliższym czasie
Bitcoin News Today – Mimo że sentyment online do Bitcoinu jest na 2 lata niski, analitycy uważają, że cyfrowa waluta jest na skraju załamania. Światowa gospodarka nie wydaje się być w tej chwili w dobrej sytuacji. Jeśli chodzi o cyfrową gospodarkę walutową, 21 września cena Bitcoin System spadła o prawie 6,5 proc. do poziomu 10.300 dolarów, po tym jak przez kilka tygodni holding zyskiwał ponad 11 tys. dolarów.

Bitcoin jest nadal powiązany ze złotem i S&P 500

Ciekawe jest jednak, że wartość waluty cyfrowej benchmarku spadła wraz z S&P 500 i złotem. Z technicznego punktu widzenia, indeks zmienności CBOE pokazuje, że sugerowana zmienność S&P 500 w omawianym wcześniej okresie czasu wzrosła dość drastycznie. Po raz pierwszy od ponad dwóch miesięcy wzrosła ona powyżej 30 USD, co skłoniło wielu analityków do stwierdzenia, że zbliża się kolejny krach podobny do tego z marca.

Wartość złota również mocno spadła, osiągając 2-miesięczny spadek. Srebro zanotowało również najbardziej znaczący spadek cen od dziewięciu lat. Ostatnie trendy dotyczące złota sprawiły, że komentatorzy uważają, że ludzie są obecnie nastawieni na dolara amerykańskiego jako bezpieczną przystań finansową, zwłaszcza, że indeks dolarowy ma ostatnio niesamowicie silną trakcję.

Waluta kryptograficzna wykazywała znacznie większą zmienność niż pozostałe aktywa

Dyrektor operacyjny bitFlyer wymiany walut cyfrowej – Joel Edgerton – powiedział, że w porównaniu z innymi aktywami, takimi jak opcje na akcje i metale szlachetne, waluta cyfrowa wykazuje znacznie większą zmienność. Dodał, że para handlowa BTC/USD była wrażliwa na ruch USD, jak również na wszelkie tematy związane z Fed. COO powiedział:

„Ruch cen jest napędzany głównie przez biznes instytucjonalny, a klienci detaliczni nadal kupują spadki i gromadzą aktywa. Kluczowym punktem, na który należy zwrócić uwagę, jest możliwy efekt wyborów w USA i jeśli to zmieni reakcję FED z jego obecnej bardzo akomodacyjnej postawy na bardziej normalne stanowisko“.

Edgerton powiedział również, że zmiany w amerykańskim kodeksie podatkowym mogą mieć bezpośredni wpływ na cyfrowy rynek walutowy.

Co dalej z ceną Bitcoina?

W ostatnim spadku cen, waluta cyfrowa znalazła wsparcie około 10.300 dolarów, co spowodowało, że jej nastroje w mediach społecznościowych spadły do poziomu 24 miesięcy. Niemniej jednak, na podstawie danych opublikowanych przez Santiment, firmę zajmującą się analizą walut cyfrowych, Bitcoin ma tendencję do obserwowania ogromnego skoku cen za każdym razem, gdy nastroje online wokół niego unoszą się w strefie strachu, niepewności i wątpliwości (FUD). Oznacza to, że spodziewany jest wzrost cen, a waluta cyfrowa prawdopodobnie wzrośnie w najbliższym czasie.

Mehrere Datenpunkte deuten darauf hin, dass der Bullenlauf im Bitcoin-Stil 2017 begonnen hat

Daten zur sozialen Stimmung, die Stärkung der Fundamentaldaten und die Analyse in der Kette deuten darauf hin, dass Bitcoin kurz vor einem Bullenlauf im Stil von 2017 steht.

Letzte Woche verzeichnete Bitcoin ( BTC ) einen Preisanstieg von 6,95% von 10.804 USD am 5. Oktober auf 11.555 USD bis zum 12. Oktober

Der Anstieg war die Woche mit der besten Performance für den Bitcoin-Preis seit Juli, und die Daten zeigen eine spürbare Verschiebung der Marktstimmung das digitale Gut.

Nach Angaben von TheTie, einem alternativen Datenanbieter für digitale Assets, hat der tägliche Stimmungswert für Bitcoin Billionaire 62,4 erreicht. Die Metrik misst den Ton der Gespräche in Twitter, um eine positive oder negative Stimmung auf dem Markt abzuleiten, und jeder Wert über 50 impliziert, dass die Marktstimmung positiv ist.

Bitcoin und der Rest der Kryptoindustrie hatten Anfang Oktober einen fairen Anteil an negativer Presse. Die CFTC und das DOJ gingen gegen die BitMEX-Börse vor und beschuldigten das Unternehmen, am 1. Oktober eine Derivatbörse illegal betrieben zu haben, und die britische FCA verbot am 6. Oktober Kryptowährungsderivate für Privatkunden .

Keines dieser Ereignisse führte jedoch zu den von vielen Anlegern erwarteten negativen Ergebnissen . Darüber hinaus folgten auf die negativen Nachrichten bullische Geschichten wie Square, in denen 1% seines Vermögens Bitcoin zugewiesen wurde .

Im Allgemeinen häufen sich weiterhin bullische Anzeichen für Bitcoin, und als der digitale Vermögenswert auf 11.500 USD stieg, stieg die Gesamtmarktkapitalisierung des gesamten Sektors um 6% von 339 Mrd. USD auf 359 USD.

Ein kürzlich veröffentlichter Bericht, in dem über 30 Diskussionsteilnehmer befragt wurden, darunter der Kryptowährungskommentator von eToro, David Derhy, Alpha5-CEO, Vishal Shah, und der Währungsstratege der LMAX Group, Joel Kruger, ergab, dass Bitcoin laut Diskussionsteilnehmer bis Ende 2020 14.283 USD erreichen wird Durchschnitt .

Die Blockchain-Aktivität entspricht der Stimmung

Zahlreiche Kennzahlen in der Kette stimmen auch mit der positiven Stimmung bei Bitcoin überein. Während die Investorentätigkeit angezogen hat, muss der Preis noch folgen. Laut dem Kryptowährungsanalysten Willy Woo signalisiert dies eine Zunahme der „Investorentätigkeit“, die im Bitcoin-Preis noch nicht berücksichtigt wurde. Woo sagte :

Die „Investorentätigkeit“ basiert auf dem Volumen in der Kette. Dies liegt daran, dass beim Wechsel von BTC zwischen Brieftaschen zwischen zwei verschiedenen Teilnehmern davon ausgegangen wird, dass eine Zahlung außerhalb der Kette (Fiat oder Alt-Münze) erfolgt ist. Es ist eine unvollkommene Maßnahme, aber ungefähr, was los ist. “

Bitfinex-Hacker verschieben Bitcoin im Wert von $26 Millionen in unbekannte Brieftaschen; ignorieren immer noch die Belohnung von $400 Millionen

Bitcoin (BTC) im Wert von Millionen von Bitcoin (BTC), die beim Bitfinex-Hack 2016 unterwegs gestohlen wurden.
Die Hacker führten sechs große Transfers im Wert von mehreren Millionen Dollar in unbekannte Brieftaschen durch.
Nahezu 2.500 Bitcoins, die 2016 aus dem Bitfinex-Tausch gestohlen wurden, sind wieder in Bewegung – nach ähnlichen Multimillionen-Dollar-Transfers im August dieses Jahres (12 Millionen Dollar und dann 5,7 Millionen Dollar). Insgesamt 2479,62 BTC (~26 Millionen Dollar) wurden vom Konto des Bitfinex-Hackers in unbekannte Brieftaschen verschoben, berichtete Whale Alerts am 6. Oktober.

Laut dem auf Twitter basierenden Daten-Bot für Waltransaktionen umfassten sechs Transaktionen Bewegungen in Höhe von mehreren Millionen Dollar, die zwischen 4 Millionen und 4,8 Millionen Dollar lagen, und eine weitere Transaktion belief sich auf insgesamt etwas mehr als 12.000 Dollar.

Im Jahr 2016 wurde Bitfinex Zeuge eines Hacks, bei dem Benutzer fast 120.000 BTC verloren, damals im Wert von etwa 73 Millionen Dollar (derzeit im Wert von über 1,2 Milliarden Dollar). Seitdem hat die Börse die Verluste durch ihre Stablecoin an die Kunden zurückgezahlt und eine Rückgabepolitik für die gestohlenen BTC eingeführt.

Anfang August kündigte die Bitfinex-Börse eine Belohnung in Höhe von 400 Millionen Dollar für die Hacker an, um den vollen Betrag der gestohlenen BTC – oder ein Drittel der gesamten gestohlenen Bitcoins – zurückzugeben. Trotz der Bemühungen der Börse, die Belohnung privat und anonym auszuzahlen, scheinen die Hacker immer noch nicht genügend Anreiz zu haben, die BTC zurückzugeben.

I pagamenti delle assicurazioni contro il ransomware potrebbero violare le sanzioni

Gli hacker dalla Corea del Nord e dalla Russia sono stati pagati negli ultimi anni, entrambi sanzionati
Secondo il Dipartimento del Tesoro degli Stati Uniti, le compagnie di assicurazione che pagano i criminali informatici per conto delle aziende in caso di richiesta di ransomware potrebbero violare le sanzioni. Un’ondata di hack seguita da richieste di ransomware negli ultimi anni ha portato le compagnie di assicurazione a pagare il riscatto, tipicamente in Bitcoin , ma il Tesoro ha ora avvertito che se gli hacker si dimostrassero collegati a paesi nell’elenco delle sanzioni statunitensi, le compagnie di assicurazione potrebbero affrontare rigide sanzioni.

L’assicurazione contro i ransomware è più necessaria che mai

L’avvertimento alle compagnie di assicurazione è arrivato dall’Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) del Tesoro e dalla Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) e ha fatto riferimento al numero crescente di casi di ransomware in cui i pagamenti sono richiesti in Bitcoin.

Le richieste di pagamento del ransomware sono aumentate durante la pandemia di coronavirus poiché sempre più persone hanno lavorato da casa, consentendo agli hacker di prendere di mira i sistemi online in modo più efficace. Reuters stima i pagamenti ransomware medi per il secondo trimestre a $ 178.254, un aumento del 60% rispetto al primo trimestre.

Principali hacker dei paesi sanzionati

L’avvertimento del Tesoro non è una minaccia inutile. È risaputo che la Corea del Nord è un importante cyber hacker , con il loro gruppo Lazarus sponsorizzato dallo stato che ha portato centinaia di milioni di dollari attraverso richieste di ransomware e hack di criptovaluta negli ultimi anni.

L’OFAC ha citato attacchi informatici risalenti al 2015 che sono stati successivamente ricondotti ad hacker in Corea del Nord e Russia, due paesi sanzionati, e ha sottolineato che le aziende che si impegnano con paesi sanzionati o determinati individui di quei paesi possono essere perseguiti e puniti.

Il promemoria mette le compagnie di assicurazione in una posizione difficile e può comportare la rimozione della copertura relativa al ransomware, lasciando le aziende che detengono il bambino se dovesse essere violato.
