XRP Forensics ruft Bitrue für die Abschottung von Benutzern auf

  • XRP Forensics wirft Bitrue vor, Nutzern den Zugriff auf ihre Konten zu verweigern.
  • Die Konten der Nutzer wurden angeblich aus verschiedenen Gründen eingefroren.
  • Bitrue hat auf die Vorwürfe reagiert.

Das Trust Project ist ein internationales Konsortium von Nachrichtenorganisationen, das Standards für Transparenz entwickelt.

Der forensische Arm der XRP-Ledger-Analyseplattform, XRP Forensics, hat Bitrue für den Entzug des Zugriffs für einige seiner Benutzer aufgerufen.

Digital Asset Exchange, Bitrue, wurde beschuldigt, Benutzer von ihren Konten laut Bitcoin Bank auszuschließen. XRP Forensics sprang in das Gespräch und rief Bitrue und seinen CEO, Curis Wang, in einer Reihe von Tweets am 12. Februar aus.

Die Forensik-Plattform hat mehrere Beschwerden von Bitrue-Nutzern erhalten, die beim Zugriff auf ihre Konten auf Probleme gestoßen sind. Schlimmer noch, es scheint keinen rechtfertigenden Grund für die Sperrung zu geben.

Sie listete mehrere wahrscheinliche Gründe für den Schritt auf und stellte auch die harte Haltung der Börse gegenüber dem Arbitrage-Handel in Frage.

Sie fordert nun, dass Bitrue Beweise gegen die betroffenen Trader vorlegt. In Ermangelung von legitimen Gründen, die beweisen, dass sie säumig sind, muss sie den Nutzern zumindest erlauben, ihre Gelder abzuheben.

XRP Forensics erinnert Bitrue an seine Rolle bei der Wiederherstellung der gestohlenen Gelder

XRP Forensics wiederholte sein Mandat, im besten Interesse der XRP-Ledger-Nutzer zu handeln. Es wurde gegründet, um die Gemeinschaft vor der Epidemie von Kryptowährungsbetrug zu schützen. Laut Daten von XRPlorer wurden zwischen 2019 und 2020 8,5 Millionen XRP durch Giveaway-Betrug verloren.

Bitrue ist ein Nutznießer der Bemühungen der Community, Finanzkriminalität zu bekämpfen. Angesichts der jüngsten Vorwürfe hat XRP Forensics Bitrue aufgefordert, seine Nutzer fair zu entschädigen.

Im Jahr 2019 nutzte ein Hacker ein Schlupfloch im zweiten Überprüfungsprozess des Bitrue-Risikokontrollteams aus. Der Hacker erbeutete 9,3 Millionen XRP. XRP Forensics hat versucht, den Hacker daran zu hindern, die gestohlenen Token zu waschen. Es verfolgte Berichten zufolge die gestohlenen Gelder und alarmierte Virtual Asset Service Provider (VASPs).

Es spielte auch eine wichtige Rolle bei der Wiederherstellung der gestohlenen Gelder im KuCoin-Hack im Jahr 2020.
Bitrue klärt die Luft

Bitrue hat auf die Vorwürfe über einen Twitter-Thread reagiert. Es hat Benutzern geraten, mit ihren E-Mail-Dienstleistern zu arbeiten, um Login-Probleme zu lösen.

Dinheiro de Pizza Bitcoin Hoje Vale $470 Milhões

Em 22 de maio de 2010, Laszlo Hanyecz trocou 10.000 Bitcoin por duas pizzas Papa John’s entregues de outro Bitcoiner.

Ele ofereceu 10.000 Bitcoin para duas pizzas a serem entregues em sua casa

A ganância é apenas mais um nome para a fome. Mas quando um programador de computador em 2010 pagou 10.000 Bitcoin para encher sua barriga vazia com pizza do Papa John’s, ele se condenou a permanecer eternamente desabrigado pelas pizzas do Bitcoin Future.

A história, quase uma parábola agora no curto mas rico cânone do Bitcoin Up, aconteceu em 22 de maio de 2010, quando Laszlo Hanyecz, um programador da Flórida, trocou 10.000 Bitcoin por pizzas entregues por outro Bitcoiner. É uma das primeiras compras registradas de um bem físico com Bitcoin e uma fábula dos benefícios da gratificação tardia.

O preço do Bitcoin, que vale centavos em 2010, explodiu nos últimos 10+ anos, especialmente no último mês. Após a compra de 1,5 bilhões de dólares em BTC por Tesla hoje, uma única moeda custa agora cerca de 47.000 dólares. Isso significa que a compra de 41 dólares de Hanyecz em 2010 lhe custou quase meio bilhão em economias.

Hanyecz escreveu no BitcoinTalk, um fórum Bitcoin uma vez freqüentado pelo criador pseudônimo do Bitcoin, Satoshi Nakamoto,

„Pagarei 10.000 bitcoins por um par de pizzas… como talvez 2 grandes para que eu tenha algumas sobrando para o dia seguinte“.

A gula de Hanyecz se estendeu à fantasia: „O meu objetivo é conseguir que a comida seja entregue em troca de bitcoins onde não tenho que pedir ou prepará-la eu mesmo“, explicou ele, „como pedir um ‚café da manhã‘ em um hotel ou algo assim, eles só trazem algo para você comer e você fica feliz!

As pizzas agora valem $470 milhões

Sua mente vagueou:

„Eu gosto de coisas como cebolas, pimentas, salsichas, cogumelos, tomates, pepperoni, etc… apenas coisas padrão, sem cobertura de peixe esquisito ou algo parecido. Também gosto de pizzas de queijo comum, que podem ser mais baratas de preparar ou adquirir de outra forma“.

Hanyecz conseguiu o que pensava querer do companheiro Bitcoiner que respondeu à chamada: duas pizzas grandes. Na época, Hanyecz empanturrava-se de pizza enfeitada com pimentas, salame, salsicha e azeitonas, sem saber o quanto esses ingredientes se tornariam caros.

Mas, como nos informa a posteriori, que 10.000 Bitcoin estavam destinados a valer muito mais. No último recorde da Bitcoin, $47.000 e contando, seus 10.000 Bitcoin valeriam $470.000.000. Com essa quantidade de dinheiro, Hanyecz poderia ter se esforçado para obter um valor extra grande (e talvez em algum lugar que não fosse o de Papa John).

Uma pessoa se pergunta: o que ele compraria hoje? Provavelmente, um Tesla. Ou dois.

Bitcoin heeft begin 2022 een ‚Six-Figure Price‘, zegt Crypto Analyst.

Met de BTC-prijs boven de $38.000 op vrijdag (15 januari) denkt de prominente cryptoanalist Josh Rager: „Bitcoin ziet begin 2022 een prijs van zes cijfers“.

Volgens gegevens van TradingView handelt Bitcoin vanaf 09:35 UTC op 15 januari op Coinbase rond de $38.469, een stijging van 0,7% in de afgelopen 24 uur. Tot nu toe in 2021 is BTC-USD 32,77% gestegen.

Crypto-analist Josh Rager, die ook mede-oprichter is van het online crypto-leerplatform Blockroots, en een adviseur van verschillende blockchain startups, is over het algemeen vrij conservatief als het gaat om prijsdoelen, maar de recente prijsactie van Crypto Code laat hem geloven dat de Bitcoin begin 2022 $100.000 zal hebben bereikt.

Bij de volgende piek – de naam „Bitcoin“ zal op elke t.v., telefoon en tablet ter wereld vermeld worden.

Dit zou zeker de cyclus kunnen zijn die ertoe leidt dat Bitcoin een begrip wordt, samen met serieuze adoptie van degenen die ooit de spot dreven met peer-to-peer digitaal geld.
– Josh Rager 📈 (@Josh_Rager) 15 januari 2021

De populaire cryptoanalist Lark Davis gelooft ook dat de Bitcoin-prijs $100K zal bereiken, maar hij denkt dat het voor het einde van dit jaar zal gebeuren.

In een video die vandaag op zijn YouTube-kanaal is uitgebracht, zei Davis:

„De optiemarkten hebben op dit moment een 20% kans dat de Bitcoin 50.000 dollar zal bereiken tegen het einde van januari…

„Hoe komen we eigenlijk tot een $50.000 Bitcoin? Waar komen al die nieuwe kopers vandaan? Nou, ik ben blij dat u het vraagt, want de Bitcoin-leveringscrisis gaat door zonder dat het einde in zicht is…

„De problemen met het aanbod beginnen echter al enkele van deze kleinere beurzen te raken. eToro, bijvoorbeeld, waarschuwt gebruikers nu dat de cryptohandel in het weekend beperkt gaat worden door een toename van de vraag op het platform, en hun onvermogen om genoeg crypto te kopen om aan die vraag te voldoen…

„Dat is gewoon waanzinnig bullish news voor cryptocurrencies – dat is ongelooflijk, jongens. De vraag is nu zo groot dat sommige van deze kleinere beurzen niet eens snel genoeg crypto in handen kunnen krijgen om hun klanten orders te laten kopen… Dat is zonder twijfel bullish….

„Zullen we eind januari 50K zien? Het is niet het meest waarschijnlijke scenario, maar dat prijspunt wordt pas echt relevant als je het gaat verhandelen. Voor de stapelaars, blijf gewoon stapelen, geniet van de prijs die omhoog gaat, natuurlijk, maar $50.000, het is echt niet zo gek…. 100k minimum tegen het einde van het jaar.

Veteraan Global Macro-investeerder Dan Tapiero sprak eerder vandaag over hoe zijn 16-jarige dochter net Bitcoin had gekocht met behulp van de PayPal-app. Tapiero gelooft dat investeren door het stapelen van sats populair zal worden bij Gen Z.

Mijn 16-jarige dochter koopt eindelijk #bitcoin met behulp van #paypal app.

Zou niet naar haar oude vader luisteren voor…., maar „wow het is zo makkelijk.“

Vertelde haar dat het 10x hoger kon gaan in 5 jaar (conservatief). Vervolgens zet ze 30% van haar geld in en stemt ermee in om niet te verkopen.#Btc is hoe Gen Z leert om te besparen. pic.twitter.com/Qvb8msZGxW

Op donderdag (14 januari) merkte Mati Greenspan, oprichter van FinTech en crypto-consultant Quantum Economics, op dat „de correlatie tussen Bitcoin en de USD nu -0,15 is, de laagste waarde in de geschiedenis“.

Volgens gegevens van @coinmetrics is de correlatie tussen bitcoin en de USD nu -0.15, de laagste waarde in de geschiedenis.

De inverse correlatie is nog steeds klein, maar de trend is duidelijk.

Dat is wat er gebeurt als #bitcoin 6 maanden lang vliegt terwijl de dollar zinkt als een stenen pic.twitter.com/rbPmMNfAWF.

Voor degenen die super bullish zijn op Bitcoin en denken dat de prijs veel hoger zou kunnen gaan dan $100K tegen het einde van 2021, crypto derivatenbeurs Derbit leverde gisteren goed nieuws door aan te kondigen dat het nu BTC call-opties (31 december 2021 afloop) met een uitoefenprijs van $400.000 aanbiedt.

Partial success – US authorities postpone controversial crypto law until government changes

Partial success – US authorities postpone controversial crypto law until government changes
The extension of the comment period not only buys time for the industry, but also a completely new basis for negotiations.

After a flood of feedback, the US Treasury Department’s anti-money laundering agency has now extended the comment period for its proposed law on the supervision of crypto transactions

The Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) has accordingly last Thursday announced that the time window is extended for further feedback. The bill in question was two days before Christmas and just under a month before the upcoming change of government input , which in addition to the content, criticism of the proposal also fierce headwind triggered the timing with respect.

The change in the law provides that the threshold for reporting obligations for crypto payment service providers, such as Bitcoin Revolution, will be lowered for transactions with self-managed crypto wallets. This would make the interaction with such wallets more difficult or unpleasant, which is why the crypto community sees it as an attack on the peer-to-peer (P2P) basic idea of cryptocurrencies.

The original feedback period was only 15 days, many of which were holidays, which made the criticism of the input even more critical

Yesterday’s expansion is therefore a first partial success for the crypto industry in the debate about the controversial law. For its part, the authority writes: „FinCEN welcomes the amount of feedback and has already checked more than 7,500 comments that have been submitted so far.“

With the change of government from Trump to Biden only five days away, there will also be a change in leadership for FinCEN. All signs point to Janet Yellen taking over as new Treasury Secretary from Steven Mnuchin. Although some voices suspect that Yellen could be just as restrictive as its predecessor towards the crypto industry, the extension of the comment period is not only a partial success in terms of content, but also a temporal one, because with the new government a new direction of the Ministry of Finance and of whose authorities go hand in hand.

In its extension, FinCEN seems to take into account that a distinction should be made with regard to the type and manner of crypto transactions. In its proposal, for example, it demands that information about the respective transaction must be obtained or passed on to the authorities for all deposits and withdrawals over US $ 10,000. In the case of international payments that flow into or out of the USA, the obligation to obtain and pass on information applies from 3,000 US dollars.

For the threshold of 10,000 US dollars, FinCEN allows 15 additional days for feedback, while for the threshold of 3,000 US dollars, 45 additional days can be submitted for comments:

“FinCEN grants feedback for a further 15 days for crypto transactions that are higher than US $ 10,000 or collectively greater than US $ 10,000 and concern self-managed wallets and wallets that fall within the scope of FinCEN. In addition, FinCEN provides 45 additional days of feedback on the requirement that banks and payment service providers obtain and store information about international payments. „

Bitcoin Cash, Cosmos, Dash-prisanalyse

MassMutual var i nyhetene nylig etter at de kjøpte $ 100 millioner dollar i Bitcoin , nyheter som milliardæren Mike Novogratz svarte på som „kan være den viktigste BTC-nyheten i 2020.“ På baksiden av en slik utvikling viste Bitcoin Cash en bullish avvik i diagrammene og steg mot motstandsnivået på $ 267.

Lenger nede på kryptostigen registrerte Cosmos og Dash tap de siste dagene, hvoretter de noterte seg en prisstopp i timene før pressetid

Det skal imidlertid bemerkes at resultatene de siste to månedene har avviket betydelig, noe som gir kontekst til prisbevegelsene.

Bitcoin Cash falt fra $ 288 til $ 256, en nedgang på 11,3% over fem dager. Dette var ved siden av Bitcoins nedstigning fra $ 19.200 til $ 17.600. Akkurat som Bitcoin, viste BCH også en bullish avvik på 4-timers diagrammet mellom prisen og momentumindikatoren (RSI).

Prisen dannet en lavere lav, mens Bitcoin Profit dannet en høyere lav (oransje), og deretter steg BCH for å teste motstandsnivået på $ 267. Imidlertid har det også vært i en nedadgående trend siden de lokale høydepunktene på $ 354 i november, og RSI viste nøytral fart i skrivende stund.

Trendlinjemotstanden, ved siden av det horisontale motstandsnivået på $ 267, vil gi mye innsikt i BCHs retning i de kommende timene. En avvisning her kan føre til en periode med konsolidering på $ 255, mens en vri på motstandsnivået kan starte en annen kortsiktig opptrend.

Cosmos har vært i en nedadgående trend siden den lokale toppen på $ 6,4 registrerte den i slutten av november. Siden den gang har både prisen og OBV registrert en serie med lavere høyder.

Den siste nedgangen over altcoin-markedet så også ATOM etter tap, med en handelssession nær $ 4,5. Imidlertid så påfølgende økter betydelig handelsaktivitet, og prisen økte også for å handle til $ 4,85, i skrivende stund.

Den Aroon Indikator viste at en downtrend var fortsatt i spill. Over $ 4,8-nivået vil $ 5 også fungere som et passende motstandsnivå

Dash steg ned fra $ 114 i begynnelsen av desember til $ 88 for noen timer siden. Dette var bare en tilbaketrekning i løpet av en større oppadgående trend da DASH har hatt sterke gevinster siden begynnelsen av november.

Ved å bruke Fibonacci Retracement-verktøyet for å flytte fra $ 62,21 til $ 123,06 ble noen viktige nivåer av støtte og motstand fremhevet. DASH testet 50% retracement-nivået som støtte og var vitne til en prisstopp med sterkt handelsvolum.

Det steg forbi motstanden på $ 93,5 og 38,2% retracement nivå på $ 94,8, og MACD dannet en bullish crossover under null for å generere et svakt kjøpesignal.

Det psykologiske nivået på $ 100 og motstanden på $ 104 så ut til å være de neste nivåene av interesse for oppsiden for DASH.

Follow the money: Institutions facilitate investment in Bitcoin

As Bitcoin’s impressive bullish run continues, it wouldn’t be surprising to see crypto-FOMO reach institutional investors as well.

With the crypto sector currently in a wave of bullish sentiment, as evidenced by the fact that Bitcoin Up passed its all-time high of $19,892 earlier this month, both causal and institutional investors around the world are now more interested in the growing sector. For example, on December 3, the S&P Dow Jones Indices announced that it is launching several crypto indices, with a report of 550 currencies appearing starting next year.

The aforementioned offerings will be facilitated by S&P Global in conjunction with the CME Group and News Corp. As part of the press release announcing the launch, a spokesperson for S&P’s DJI alluded to Bitcoin and other prominent altcoins such as Ether (ETH) and Bitcoin Cash (BCH) as part of an attractive „emerging asset class.

Fidelity on Bitcoin: What do your analysts say?

S&P DJI also informed that it will join the data provider chain Lukka to launch the aforementioned indices. As a result, some in the crypto community are of the opinion that the industry has finally made permanent inroads into the conventional financial world. Stephen Stonberg, chief financial and operations officer of Bittrex Global, told Cointelegraph that while the announcement has been definitely welcome, conventional consumer adoption has been imminent:

„This is more a continuation of an existing trend than a turning point. By placing the risk of cryptic assets in the form of a traditional ETF-based index, this should provide additional access points to the crypt market for mainstream investors. This will compete with the high-cost BTC-only products that are now available to this audience.

However, Douglas Borthwick, director of marketing for the INX exchange, provided an alternative view that, while cryptomoney is certainly making its mark on the traditional financial ecosystem, it still has a long way to go. He added that „crypto“ is not just „Bitcoin“ but offers so much more: „There are so many categories these days that fit under the umbrella of ‚crypto‘. There’s sure to be a permanent impression. But that impression remains one of skepticism as opposed to one of future.

That said, the S&P DJI movement shows a clear commitment by the major players to embrace Bitcoin and other digital currencies. For example, earlier this month, the Grayscale Bitcoin Trust increased in tandem with its premium, which surpassed the 30% mark on December 3, serving as a clear indicator of increased institutional demand for cryptomonies.
Institutions will benefit

According to Stonberg, the latest move by S&P’s DJI essentially involves trading digital/tokenized assets in the format of a traditional equity product that is traded during standard trading hours. In short, it is a way of taking money from institutional stocks indirectly into crypto space, a process of convergence between traditional financial markets and crypto, which is likely to take a few years to occur.

Bitcoin will eat up gold market share, according to analysts at JPMorgan

On the subject, Anton Churyumov, founder of Obyte – a DLT based on directed acyclic graphics technology – told Cointelegraph that institutions will always pursue anything that makes money for them and their customers, adding:

„With crypto indexes, the asset class is better recognized and easier to sell to customers. Perhaps even more importantly, with DeFi, crypto currencies now have a much wider choice of instruments that appeal to different investors, for example, there are now stablecoins for more conservative investors.

Jack Tao, CEO of Phemex – a crypto-currency exchange headed by former Morgan Stanley executives – believes it will soon be unsurprising to see an explosion of new services and products, making this domain even more attractive to members of the traditional financial sector: „I’m pretty sure these giants won’t want to miss the crypto-currency train. This is just the beginning, I hope to see many more funds and investments soon.

Will FOMO prevail?

As crypto-currencies continue their long-term price rise, it is worth investigating whether institutional investors will embrace crypto-FOMO – the fear of being lost or left out. In this regard, Sarah Austin, head of content at Kava Labs – a decentralized financial company – told Cointelegraph that, according to her sources, operators

Bitcoin mining: the money you need to get started

How much money does it take to get started in Bitcoin mining? It depends on many factors, but what is certain is that it is not economical.

Something that’s clear to everyone is that to get into the Bitcoin Rejoin business you need money. Now, determining the exact amount is complicated. This depends on many factors, which vary according to the country in question where you plan to start the activity.

In other words, you have to keep in mind the cost of the equipment, which varies from country to country and with each supplier. At the same time, it is important to consider the costs of the materials needed to operate a farm and the rental of the space where the equipment will be housed.

Another fact to keep in mind when talking about entering the digital mining business is the magnitude of the initial operations. That is to say, how many machines are planned to be installed and which models. The greater the number of equipment and the newer, the higher the costs.

The money needed to start in Bitcoin mining

If you talk about starting in the Bitcoin mining with about 5 thousand machines, the cost in money can amount to several million dollars. This year, some companies in the United States, such as Marathon, Riot Blockchain and Core Scientific, made millionaire purchases of these machines. But the purchase is only a part of the expense.

However, here we will evaluate the investment cost with the budget of a normal person or small company. In this case, we could be talking about someone with the intention of setting up a mining room, for example, in an office or a house.

One such room could for example house 50 S9 machines, assuming that the electrical cost is low. If the bill is high, then other more efficient models should be considered. In each country, suppliers have different prices for the machines, so it is advisable to take that into consideration when looking for the price and multiply it by 50.

The first part of the expense is already evident, it is the cost of the equipment itself. In this same cost you can add the rental value of the site. This contemplates the initial payment (months in advance, deposit, etc.).

Cripto Youtuber invests USD $100.000 in Bitcoin and Ethereum

The investment to turn on the machines

Keeping Bitcoin mining machines running requires a considerable amount of money. You should consider that 50 ASICs model S9, with a 220V electricity, work with about 300 amps. Also, the consumption is about 115,000 kilowatts.

During the first case, one should consider the type and quantity of cable to be purchased and, in the second case, probably a transformer. In that sense, the cost of a transformer of about 100 or 160 KVA should be evaluated, plus the cost of its installation.

As for the cable, the place where the transformer is installed and its floor should be taken into account, assuming it is an office. From there, the number of lines is calculated, for example 3 (phase, neutral and ground) and the distance from the transformer to the office is measured, the number of meters is multiplied by three. For example, if there are 30 meters from the transformer to the office, then 90 meters of cable will be needed.

Of course it is not just any type of cable, but thick copper cable, for example 1/0 or its equivalent 3/0 in aluminum. In this sense, the price per meter of cable should be calculated and multiplied by 90. It is likely that, taking into account the amperage of these cables, one more line will be needed or, failing that, cables with a higher capacity.

Bitcoin miners‘ income grew 8% in October

Other material expenses

At this point, you already have practically 80% of the investment money for a quarter of Bitcoin mining. If you want to install a few pairs of machines, you’ll save a lot of money, since most of the expenses described above won’t be necessary at all.

Keeping the example of a room with 50 machines in an office or a rented house, you should move on to the next stage of investment. This is mainly about the extra materials and installation.

If the person who wants to install the mined room has knowledge of electricity, he or she will not need to hire an electrician. Otherwise, he should consider it as another important factor that comes into play in the budget.

The installation of extractors for air circulation and insulation material to prevent noise from disturbing the neighbors cannot be avoided. Depending on the site, no air conditioning will be needed, with a fresh air intake, that’s enough.

ETH-prisanalys: Sälj nyheterna? Ethereum Dumps 9% När ETH 2.0 lanserades

Ethereum såg lite vispsågliknande prisrörelse idag efter att den sjönk med cirka 9% innan den återhämtade sig. Allt detta ägde rum dagen för den efterlängtade fas 0-lanseringen av Ethereum 2.0.

ETH / USD – Ethereum Whipsaw Swing ser $ 560 innan den startar igen

Viktiga supportnivåer: $ 580, $ 560, $ 550.

Viktiga motståndsnivåer: $ 620, $ 650, $ 665.

Tidigare idag spetsade Ethereum lägre med cirka 9% när det sjönk från motståndet till $ 620 för att bryta under $ 600 och nå $ 560. Där hittade den stöd på .236 Fib Retracement-nivån och återhämtade sig för att klättra tillbaka över $ 600 och slå $ 607. Sedan dess har den sjunkit under 600 dollar då den handlar runt 590 dollar. Intressant nog sammanföll allt detta med lanseringen av fas 0 i Ethereum 2.0.

Nästa nivå av motstånd mot att bryta ligger på $ 620, vilket orsakade problem för marknaden tidigare i november.

ETH-USD Kortfristig förutsägelse

Ser vi framåt, om köparna bryter $ 620, ligger den första nivån av högre motstånd på $ 650. Detta följs av $ 665 (1,272 Fib-förlängning), $ 675 (baisseartad .786 Fib Retracement), $ 687 (1,414 Fib Extension) och $ 700.

På andra sidan ligger den första supportnivån på $ 600. Ytterligare support finns på $ 580, $ 560 (.236 Fib) och $ 550.

4HR RSI har börjat peka lägre, vilket tyder på att den hausseartade momentum kan börja blekna.

Viktiga stödnivåer: 0,031 BTC, 0,03 BTC, 0,0291 BTC.

Viktiga motståndsnivåer: 0,032 BTC, 0,033 BTC, 0,0337 BTC.

Mot Bitcoin spetsade Bitcoin Era också lägre då det sjönk från 0,0318 BTC för att slå så lågt som 0,03 BTC. Där hittade det stöd vid .5 Fib Retracement, vilket gjorde det möjligt att hoppa högre för att nå den nuvarande 0,0314 BTC-nivån.

ETH-BTC korttidsprediktion

Ser vi framåt ligger den första motståndsnivån på 0,032 BTC. Detta följs av 0,033 BTC, 0,0337 BTC och 0,0345 BTC.

På andra sidan ligger stöd först vid 0,031 BTC. Detta följs av 0,03 BTC (.5 Fib), 0,0295 BTC, 0,0291 BTC (.618 Fib) och 0,0284 BTC (Feb 2020 High).

RSI visar också att det hausseartade momentum långsamt börjar blekna.

Bitfinex hack: $ 100 million moved following new Bitcoin record

Hackers also want to make a profit … Part of the funds stolen from the Bitfinex exchange in 2016 has just moved, while Bitcoin (BTC) has experienced a new price record.

Funds stolen from Bitfinex hack went into motion

It was the WhaleAlert alert service that reported the 14 consecutive transactions that allowed these funds from the Bitfinex hack to transit :

In total, 5,045.8 bitcoins were moved to different wallets. Given the current price of a BTC, the amount transferred is approaching $ 100 million . This probably ends Bitfinex’s attempt to recover the bitcoins that had been stolen during its hack. Last August, the exchange had indeed offered $ 400 million to anyone who returned the stolen BTC.

Bitcoin (BTC) hits new all-time high

These stolen bitcoins are moving as the price of Bitcoin has just exceeded its all-time-high yesterday. It reached a price never known in its history: $ 19,799 . The loot of the hacker (s) is therefore now worth much more than when it was collected. In 2016, the sum corresponded to 72 million dollars. Today, it corresponds to… 2.3 billion dollars !

Still, if the BTC has so far not exceeded the threshold of 20,000 dollars, it is getting closer and closer. It has now cashed its correction suffered at the end of last week, and is on the rise again:

In one day, the price of BTC rose by almost 9% before moderating its ardor this morning. It is currently trading for $ 19,330 according to data from CoinGecko.

Investment giant BlackRock: „Bitcoin will take the place of gold“

BlackRock CIO Rick Rieder says that „Bitcoin is here to stay“.

A top manager of the world’s largest wealth management company BlackRock believes that Bitcoin ( BTC ) has become a permanent fixture in the global financial system.

Another clear sign that the perception of the cryptocurrency has changed significantly in the meantime

Rick Rieder, one of BlackRock’s investment chiefs (CIO), said yesterday in an interview with the CNBC news channel that “Bitcoin has come to stay”.

Although Rieder also emphasizes that he does not invest in the cryptocurrency himself and does not appear as an advocate for it, he is nevertheless convinced that Bitcoin “will largely take the place of gold because it is so much more practical than gold bars „.

This comparison is obvious, because Bitcoin is repeatedly referred to as „digital gold“, as the cryptocurrency has a similar function as a store of value as the precious metal. Many Bitcoin fans are confident that their cryptocurrency can cut a huge slice of the cake of market leader gold once investors see its benefits. Rieder’s words give this hope new nourishment.

Converted into gold, 1 Bitcoin is currently valued at 9.961 ounces

2020 could be the year in which the perception of Bitcoin, especially among institutional investors and large investors, changes significantly for the better. So already the two major investors Paul Tudor Jones and Stanley Druckenmiller have for Bitcoin this year made strong , then later, the two big banks Citigroup and JPMorgan have expressed sympathetically about the crypto currency.

BlackRock, the influential asset management company in which CDU politician Friedrich Merz held a leading position for a long time, is itself indirectly invested in Bitcoin through its participation in MicroStrategy . The software manufacturer had set up large parts of its cash reserves in Bitcoin this year.
