Industriutøvelse som fortsatt er trygg Bitcoin kan slå $ 100 000 i 2021

Med Bitcoin-priser som fortsatt korrigerer fra rekordhøye, ser analytikere og ledere i bransjen mot resten av året, og noen mener seks tall fremdeles er mulige.

Bitcoin-prisene handles for tiden litt over 20% ned fra sin heltid forrige uke på $ 42.000. Ting så ut som å komme seg tirsdag 12. januar, men den ‚lavere høye‘ som ble lagt ut indikerer at prisene har falt ytterligere, og korreksjonen er ikke over ennå.

I skrivende stund handlet Bitcoin til $ 33.000, en nedgang på 6% det siste døgnet. I går klarte det bare en intradag-høyde på $ 36.500 før salget ble gjenopptatt.

Bitcoin er i ferd med å danne sitt femte røde daglige lys på rad, noe som ikke har skjedd siden juni 2020, da prisene falt fra $ 10.200 til $ 8.800 ifølge Tradingview.com.

Bitcoin kan slå $ 100 000 i 3. kvartal

Ifølge medstifter av 10T Holdings, Dan Tapiero, er Bitcoin fremdeles på vei til å nå $ 100 000 innen tredje kvartal 2021. Han har tatt dette fra lager-til-strøm-modellen som har vært uhyggelig nøyaktig i å forutsi priser så langt.

Ser på @ 100trillionUSD #bitcoin-diagrammet. Så langt kudos.

Ja 100k veldig mulig innen Q321, men så SIDEWAYS til 2024!

Den seks-sifrede spådoen gjenspeiler det av JP Morgan-strateger som foreslo en pris på $ 146k på lengre sikt. Makroinvestoren kommenterte at når denne syklusen har nådd sitt høydepunkt, vil det være nesten fire år med sidelengs handling for Bitcoin-markeder til den neste begynner rundt 2024.

Talsmann for S2F-modellen, ‘PlanB’, twitret også nylig at den spiller ut ‘som urverk’ med en forutsagt pris på rundt $ 28 650 og en faktisk pris 16% høyere.

For øyeblikket er prisene over hva dette, og flere andre modeller, forutser at de har beveget seg noe parabolsk den siste måneden. Dette fører alltid til en korreksjon av en viss størrelse når ting faller tilbake til midten av området på disse kartene.

Tekniske analytikere har observert tidligere tilbaketrekninger i området 30-40%, noe som kan senke prisene så lave som $ 25 000 i løpet av denne avkjølingsperioden.

Frykt og grådighetsindeks kjøler seg

En rekke indikatorer som RSI blinket varselskilt om at eiendelen var overkjøpt, så korreksjonen har ikke vært en overraskelse.

Bitcoin Fear and Greed Index, som måler følelser og følelser fra forskjellige kilder, har også avkjølt seg fra over 90, ‚ekstrem grådighet‘, til slutten av 70-tallet, selv om det ikke er i nærheten av noen fryktnivå ennå.

På tidspunktet for skrivingen var de fleste kryptoaktiva i rødt igjen etter forrige lavere høyde på diagrammene, slik at smerten kanskje ikke er over ennå ettersom fortjenesten fjernes fra bordet som forberedelse til neste etappe.

Alle store gruvebassenger støtter nå Taproot, Bitcoins største oppgradering på flere år

Binance Pool, gruvebassenget som drives av en av kryptos største børser, er forberedt på å støtte Taproot, et godt varsel for neste store Bitcoin-oppgradering. Tillegget av Binance Pool til „ja“ -kolonnen betyr at alle de store bassengene nå er ombord.

Taproot er en skalering og personvernendring som vil være den største oppgraderingen den digitale valutaen har mottatt på flere år – og den er langt mindre kontroversiell enn den forrige.

Ifølge krypto-gruvebasseng Poolin VP Alejandro De La Torre, sier Binance Pool at det vil støtte Taproot-oppgraderingen, og rydde opp i enhver tvetydighet, siden bassenget var det eneste med over 10% av nettverket som ikke hadde sagt „ja“ til forslaget. Binance Pool representerer 11% av Bitcoin-gruvedriftens hashrate, så støtten presser gruvedriftstøtten opp til omtrent 91% av hashratet.

Binance svarte ikke umiddelbart på forespørsel om kommentar.

De La Torre leder Taproot Activation, et initiativ for å finne ut om det er enighet om Taproot som en endring. I følge nettstedet har noen få mindre gruvebassenger, inkludert Lubian.com og BTC.TOP, ikke svart på om de støtter oppgraderingen eller ikke.

Signalering for Taproot

Denne støtten fra gruvearbeidere kommer i sterk kontrast til SegWit, Bitcoins siste store oppgradering, som ble aktivert i 2017. SegWit ble distribuert ved hjelp av BIP 9, noe som krever at 95% av gruvebassengflagget støtter endringen før endringen offisielt ville bli aktivert. For å blokkere forandringen flagg gruvedrift rett og slett ikke,

Så langt har gruvebassenger ikke noe problem med Taproot. Binance Pools støtte er et tegn på at endringen snart kan aktiveres hvis ingen finner noen form for dødelig feil i den.

Disse nyhetene er spesielt følsomme fordi hvis Taproot blir distribuert ved hjelp av BIP 9, vil gruvebassenger måtte merke at de er klare for endringen før den kan aktiveres.

Men det er fortsatt en del debatt om denne prosessen. Mekanikken til selve Taproot er ikke kontroversiell. Bitcoin Loophole mest aktive utviklere er helt enige om at det er en positiv endring.

Likevel, hvordan distribuere endringen er fremdeles oppe til debatt. I løpet av de siste månedene har utviklere diskutert den beste måten å distribuere Taproot på. For å forenkle en kompleks debatt, mener noen BIP 8 ville være bedre fordi det ikke tillater gruvedrift å blokkere forandringen av treghet eller apati.

Å vite at gruvebassenger, som Binance Pool, støtter endringen, kan gi BIP 9 et løft.

Getting passive income on cryptocurrency indices is not enough

Passive investment in the world of traditional finance is, well … passive. And it is not just the fact that passive indices give investors access to shares without having to do anything about the composition of the index. It is also the case that holding shares is fundamentally a passive game.

No obligation as a shareholder
Having a share entitles the investor to economic and administrative rights within a company, but there are no performance obligations as a shareholder. As Bitcoin Evolution a shareholder, it is perfectly fine simply to hold a share forever, collect dividends and enjoy capital growth over time by holding shares in a company.

Even if a shareholder were to exercise his administrative rights, there are limits to what he can do. Of course, shareholders can do things like vote for new board members, adjust management remuneration and approve or reject important financial transactions, such as mergers and acquisitions.

Daily business
But shareholders do not manage companies directly. Apple shareholders do not set prices for Apple’s newest iPhones, nor do Amazon shareholders determine which new markets Amazon should enter. Usually, apart from activist situations, shareholders are absent when it comes to a company’s activities. And the same can be said for index funds which, although they own a significant proportion of most listed companies, cannot exercise power.

Crypto is another story.

Keeping tokens is active
Holding Tokens is an active game. In many cases, token holders directly control the protocols and take on the risks of the protocols. In Synthetix, token holders actively store synthetic assets and manage the debt of the protocols. In Aave, token holders actively determine the risk parameters of their credit markets and insure the protocol in the event of insolvency events.

And at Nexus Mutual, token holders arrange the transactions between them and determine which claims are paid out. To perform these activities, active token holders receive protocol rewards in the form of fees (tokens), while passive token holders often receive nothing.

Indexes compete
In general, indices are a capital accumulation game in which index providers compete for trillions of dollars of capital from investors. The way to attract investors is by offering them incentives that meet their asset exposure and diversification needs (i.e., what’s in an index).

But the composition of an index is only half the game in the crypto world. The other half is what the tokens in an index do for an investor’s assets, because crypto assets are meant to be productive.

More features
Most crypto projects recognise the fact that holding tokens is an active game. Many index products, such as those from PowerPool and PieDAO, are implemented as forks from Balancer liquidity pools, which means that assets in the pool are made available to trade against. But now protocols go a step further by adding features such as meta-governance and fund management strategies. The combined functions provide index investors with a combination of governance delegation and return strategies on their tokens, which are the basis for enticing investors to buy these indices for reasons beyond the composition of the index.

This is just the beginning. The next development is when passive investment turns into passive participation. Ryan Watkins explains this well in the wire below.

Taurus Weapons has more profitable action of 2020 but is still far from Bitcoin

Shares of Taurus, a weapons manufacturer, rose more than 170% in Brazil, a good result but very far from Bitcoin which valued more than 400% in Brazil

One of the shares that gained the most value in 2020 in Brazil was Taurus, a weapons manufacturer that appears in the leadership among the shares that make up the Small Cap Index (SMLL).

However, although the profitability is expressive, it is still far from the appreciation of Bitcoin Champion review in the year that had more than 220% appreciation, in its value in dollars. When compared to its value in reais, Bitcoin had more than 400% appreciation going from R$ 29 thousand at the beginning of 2020 to more than R$ 122 thousand at the time of writing.

Thus, according to a survey conducted by Yubb, in the comparison between the 5 small caps shares with the best performance during the year, Taurus appears in 1st place, with a valuation of 178.30%.

„The shares of small caps companies have a great potential for appreciation at the present time. In moments of crisis, large companies are usually the main ones impacted, mainly by their size. Therefore, the small caps can suffer less impact on the crises, mainly the most sectorized ones“, explains Bernardo Pascowitch, Yubb founder.

Still according to the executive, Taurus growth comes from recently announced measures.

At the beginning of the month, the company declared that it will invest $ 110 mns in its plant in Rio Grande do Sul to amplify the production capacity.

Besides, the stock market government is announcing measures with fiscal reduction for the arms market, which impels the company’s demand and, consequently, values its stocks.

„But it is worth remembering that, at the same time, the federal government tried, without success, to zero tariffs on arms imports and this has harmed Taurus and its actions,“ says the executive.

Bitcoin

For João Canhada, Foxbit?s CEO, this brand is something historical and that revealed another Bitcoin surprise in 2020 that doesn’t stops breaking records and barriers.

„Historically who bought and kept Bitcoin for 3 years was on the profit, once more the thesis was proved. Bitcoin finds in this chaotic 2020 the ideal scenario to overcome gold and prove itself as a global reserve currency, with all the qualities of this asset is the big bet to beat inflation and the heavy hand of governments printing money to pay the Covid bill“ reveals Canhada.

Still according to Canhada, part of this high is because of having a lot of institutional money entering the market, more than 30% of every dollar in circulation in the world was printed this year, investors are looking for assets that can protect their buying power, many companies and funds publicly announcing positions in bitcoin, or future purchases on a large scale.

„The high of 2017 was of individuals to 2020 are of legal entities (companies) that are entering the market of cryptomoedas“ concludes.

Weapons on the rise, education on the decline

In the case of stocks in Brazil, while weapons are on the rise, education is on the decline.

Thus, in the five biggest falls, the IRB Brazil heads the ranking, with a 79.04% drop. There were suspicions of fraud in its former board of directors, which may have impacted the fall, but in second and third position are the education companies.

Bitcoin or altcoins: Who now rules the ball in the krypto market?

There is a marked recovery in the cryptographic market. Yesterday, bitcoin surpassed $19,300 for the first time since December 2017, the airwaves passed the $600 mark and XRP is showing weekly growth of more than 100%.

Denis Voskvitsov, head of the Exantech financial company, believes that the 2021 bitcoin may well exceed the historic high of $20,000. However, he notes:

„Bitcoin has growth and decline cycles associated with halving. In the first year, the bitcoin accelerates, then the hippe dies and quotes go down. In general, during the correction period, bitcoins give up to 80% of the increase during the bullish cycle (not the price).

From Voskvitzov’s point of view, Bitcoin can really show ‚astronomical‘ growth, in theory even a rise to $500,000 or $1,000,000 is possible, because this cryptographic currency is designed to be more expensive. But there are several risks that could prevent the value of the cryptovite from rising. One of them is the emergence of a competitor that could cause Bitcoin to lose its leadership like Yahoo! and Netscape once did.

Another risk is government policy. If a hippie is formed around the cryptovoltaic currency, as in 2017, the rate of capitalisation of the bitcoin compass may cause governments to fear systemic risks. Therefore, the next round of growth will depend on the ability to survive regulatory pressure, the expert stressed. Voskvitzov said that the next round of growth will depend on the ability to survive the pressure of the regulators:

„Many countries are developing their own digital tokens of national currencies, which hypothetically should create competition for bitcoin. However, they have a problem with centralisation, so projects such as Bitcoin will be popular“.

Voskvitzov also emphasises that retail buyers are now entering the market, many of whom are already priced too high for bitcoin. At the same time, other cryptocurrencies are still cheap against this background, even after leaps of tens and hundreds of percent over the last week. Voskvitov says:

„In recent years, the news background has been mainly related to bitcoin, now it’s really time for altokoin. Despite the proximity of Bitcoin to the highs of December 2017, the mood of the cryptographic markets is now at the end of 2016, when the era of altokoin and mass mining was just beginning. Althcoins have just begun their upward journey and may approach their historic highs before Christmas.“

He warned that a correction may begin after the rally. Judging by the fall in the Bitcoin Domination Index, we have an interesting dynamic ahead of us around the altokhoins, the expert suggested. According to him, coins worth a few cents may show the highest percentage growth, as it is more comfortable for psychologically unprofessional investors to think that the theoretical benefit from the growth of such an asset can be much higher than that of coins worth hundreds of dollars.

Lassen Sie sich nicht von versteckten Bitcoin-Handelsgebühren täuschen

Händler strömen auf der Suche nach digitalem Gold zu Bitcoin, aber die Reise kann kostspielig und verwirrend sein, mit versteckten Gebühren und umständlichen Schnittstellen, was es schwierig macht, sich erfolgreich auf dem Markt zurechtzufinden.

eToro macht die Kosten des Kryptowährungshandels kristallklar. Es gibt keine Gebühren, die im Kleingedruckten begraben sind, und eine intuitive Benutzeroberfläche hilft Ihnen, teure Fehlklicks zu vermeiden.

Achten Sie auf versteckte Gebühren

Auf eToro sind die Handelskosten in einer einzigen Gebühr enthalten. Der Prozentsatz des Spreads für den Kauf und Verkauf entspricht den gesamten Kosten des Handels – keine Gebühren, keine versteckten Gebühren, nichts.

Die Einzahlung von US-Dollar auf eToro ist völlig kostenlos, und es wird eine Pauschalgebühr von $5 erhoben, um die Bearbeitungskosten von Abhebungen zu decken. Wenn Sie in einer anderen Währung einzahlen, kann eine FX-Umrechnungsgebühr anfallen, aber die Kosten werden im Voraus deutlich gemacht, im Gegensatz zu anderen Plattformen, die oft nicht angegebene Umrechnungsgebühren erheben.

  • Beispiel für eine Gebühr
  • Erstinvestition $2.000 USD
  • BTC-Kaufpreis* $20.000 USD
  • Positionsgröße 0,1 Einheiten
  • eToro typische Spanne für BTC 0,75%

Gesamtgebühren für Hin- und Rückflug (Kauf und Verkauf): $15 USD
(0,75% *20.000 USD * 0,1 Einheiten)

*Beispielpreis

Für den Kauf und Verkauf von 0,1 Einheit Bitcoin in einem Hin- und Rückflug bei einem Preis von $20k würden Sie eine einmalige Spread-Gebühr von 0,75% oder $15 USD zahlen.

Die meisten anderen Handelsplattformen berechnen eine festgelegte Provision als Prozentsatz der Positionsgröße. Hohe Spreads – die Differenz zwischen dem Kauf- und Verkaufspreis – bedeuten jedoch, dass die tatsächlichen Kosten höher sind.

Darüber hinaus können Kontoführungs- und Inaktivitätsgebühren in den Geschäftsbedingungen versteckt sein, was sich in Gewinnen niederschlägt und jedes Mal, wenn Sie einen Handel platzieren, zu Verlusten führt.

Sogar die Einzahlung von Geldern kann bis zu 5% kosten, wobei Händler ihren Kartendienstleistern oft deutlich mehr bezahlen, um bequem mit Karte bezahlen zu können, so dass sie einen Verlust erleiden, bevor sie überhaupt mit dem Handel begonnen haben.

Wenn der Zeitpunkt für Abhebungen gekommen ist, können die Händler mit weiteren Kosten konfrontiert werden, da sie superhohe Pauschalgebühren zahlen müssen, um Gelder auf ein Bankkonto zurückzuüberweisen.

Bei eToro achten wir darauf, die Dinge so klar und einfach wie möglich zu machen – Sie zahlen nur für den Spread, ohne zusätzliche Transaktionsgebühren.

Reibungslos durch den Markt navigieren

Statt einer komplexen Schnittstelle, die neuen Händlern nur einen Fehlklick von der Katastrophe übrig lässt, bietet eToro eine nahtlose Benutzererfahrung.

Händler können sich mit den grundlegenden Mechanismen des Bitcoin-Markts durch einen rationalisierten Prozess beschäftigen, der in dem Moment beginnt, in dem Gelder eingezahlt werden.

eToro ist eine der wenigen Börsen, die PayPal unterstützt, zusammen mit mehreren anderen Einzahlungsmethoden, einschließlich Banküberweisung, Kartenzahlung, Skrill, Neteller, WebMoney und Yandex (je nach Region). Mit Geldern auf der Plattform können Sie dann einfach über eine intuitive und benutzerfreundliche Schnittstelle kaufen und verkaufen, wodurch die Verwaltung Ihres Portfolios völlig schmerzlos wird.

Um das Wasser zu testen, gibt Ihnen eToro ein kostenloses 100.000-Dollar-Demokonto. Damit können Sie ein virtuelles Portfolio aufbauen und Innovationen wie den Kopierhandel risikofrei testen.

Dieses einzigartige Handels-Toolkit, kombiniert mit einer klaren Preisgestaltung und einer intuitiven Benutzeroberfläche, bedeutet, dass der Bitcoin-Handel nicht länger kostspielig und verwirrend ist.

Bitcoin price hits $ 19,500 – BTC dominance still falls

Bitcoin continues to be bullish this week and is currently only around 4 percent below its all-time high. The increasing strength of many altcoins meanwhile causes a significant decline in BTC dominance.

The reserve currency can hold on to its bullish trend this week and will rise by around 6 percentage points on a weekly basis

Depending on the exchange, the BTC price is still three or 4.5 percent short of its all-time high. A price weakness is still not discernible. Bitcoin Circuit can now generate a new all-time high at any time. It will be exciting to see whether investors will cash in again in 2017 after the price crash from the then all-time high, or whether there will be a dynamic attempt to break out.

It is also important for investors to take into account that altcoins have also increased significantly in the past as soon as Bitcoin reached a new all-time high. The approaching all-time high in Bitcoin goes hand in hand with a new all-time high in the Dow Jones Index, which rose above 30 yesterday for the first time.

Bullish scenario (Bitcoin price)

The buying interest currently seems to continue unabated, any price setbacks are absorbed by the market and used for further purchases. If the bulls manage to enter the resistance area between 19,884 US dollars and 20,089 US dollars and also to overcome the daily closing price, a march through to the 200 Fibonacci extension at 21,113 US dollars should be planned.

If this resistance is overcome dynamically, a follow-up movement of up to 23,887 US dollars is conceivable. The maximum price target is still 26,664 US dollars (261 Fibonacci retracment). Investor sentiment is still not to be rated as greedy, and the relatively low Google search queries for the term Bitcoin do not yet indicate the hype as in 2017.

Il dollaro perde il 10% contro lo yuan cinese

Il dollaro ha perso un valore significativo rispetto allo yuan cinese (CNY) da maggio di quest’anno.

È passato da $ 1 acquistando 7,2 CNY ad ora solo 6,5 CNY, il livello più basso degli ultimi due anni

Il dollaro stava guadagnando in modo significativo contro lo yuan a seguito della svalutazione di massa del CNY che il Partito Comunista Cinese (PCC) ha cercato di mantenere implementando rigorosi controlli sui capitali al punto da chiudere gli scambi crittografici.

Per gran parte di quest’anno, tuttavia, il dollaro si è svalutato in massa, con migliaia di miliardi stampati per i soldi degli elicotteri e per salvare le aziende.

Ciò ha portato a un rafforzamento dello Cryptosoft perché in qualche modo hanno rapidamente tenuto sotto controllo la pandemia in sole tre settimane, portando a speculazioni selvagge.

L’America sta ancora lottando con esso, causando un calo della forza del dollaro al suo punto più basso da maggio 2018.

Dollaro in calo, novembre 2020

Alcuni recenti guadagni del dollaro nel suo indice di forza sono dovuti al calo dell’euro ancora di più poiché la stampa ha portato persino il debito greco a corteggiare tassi di interesse negativi .

Per quanto riguarda il CNY, potrebbe continuare a guadagnare perché non stanno adottando misure che danneggino l’economia e non lo fanno dalla fine di febbraio.

Per quanto riguarda il bitcoin, ciò potrebbe significare per i cittadini cinesi la crittografia ora è un po ‚più economica in quanto tende ad avere un prezzo in dollari.

Con il valore del dollaro in calo, il bitcoin relativamente parlando costa meno lì con i propri soldi.

Le autorità cinesi, tuttavia, stanno cercando di impedire ai loro cittadini di acquistare bitcoin, ma i cinesi in qualche modo sembrano sempre trovare un modo per farlo, anche perché bitcoin è l’asset monetario più facilmente accessibile al mondo in quanto è solo un codice che puoi anche il mio te stesso.

Banqueiro central dos Estados Unidos pede o desenvolvimento

Banqueiro central dos Estados Unidos pede o desenvolvimento do dólar digital

O membro do FOMC Robert Kaplan acredita que o Fed deve priorizar a criação de um dólar digital.

O presidente da Reserva Federal de Dallas Robert Kaplan acredita que o banco central dos EUA deve começar a trabalhar imediatamente em uma Bitcoin Era moeda digital, um indicador claro de que alguns formuladores de políticas consideram isso como um assunto urgente.

Falando terça-feira em uma conferência virtual organizada pela Bloomberg, Kaplan disse, segundo informações, que o Banco Central dos EUA deveria começar a trabalhar em uma moeda digital imediatamente:

„É fundamental que o Fed se concentre no desenvolvimento de uma moeda digital nos próximos meses e anos“.

As observações do banqueiro central foram parte de uma discussão mais ampla sobre a economia e a política fiscal.

A Kaplan é membro do Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) deste ano, a organização encarregada de estabelecer a política monetária. O Comitê 2020 cortou as taxas de juros para registrar baixas em março como parte de uma resposta política sincronizada ao Covid-19. Kaplan e o resto do FOMC têm sido fundamentais para inundar o mercado com liquidez desde setembro de 2019, quando irregularidades no mercado de reporte noturno causaram o aumento das taxas de juros de curto prazo.

A tecnologia Blockchain está certamente no radar dos formuladores de políticas

No mês passado, o presidente do Fed Jerome Powell disse que 80% dos bancos centrais em todo o mundo estão explorando a utilidade potencial de um CBDC. Embora o Fed não tenha dado nenhuma indicação sobre se irá ou não perseguir um dólar digital, ele tem destacado economistas para explorar o assunto com mais detalhes.

Na segunda-feira, o Fed lançou uma revisão da literatura sobre moedas digitais dos bancos centrais, ou CBDCs, para explorar o impacto de um dólar digital sobre a política monetária e bancária comercial. A revisão concluiu recomendando que pesquisas adicionais fossem dedicadas a explorar os vetores de valor „intrínsecos“ de uma moeda digital do governo.

Em agosto, o banco central lançou um relatório completo de pesquisa comparando um dólar digital com outros métodos de pagamento.

Embora a idéia de um CBDC seja ridicularizada por proponentes de moedas digitais verdadeiramente descentralizadas como o Bitcoin, acredita-se que o dólar digital seja a progressão natural de uma sociedade sem dinheiro. Ele pode ajudar os governos a apoiar a inovação financeira, impulsionar as funcionalidades de pagamento e apoiar uma maior integração financeira em todo o mundo.
