Ondanks de huidige run, gaat Bitcoin nog steeds om met twijfelaars…

Sommigen voorspellen dat de huidige stier die door bitcoin wordt genoten door het einde van 2021 zal duren en dat het actief 50.000 dollar zal bereiken binnen die tijd.

Bitcoin is op een serieuze run, maar niet iedereen is overtuigd…

Zoals het nu is, is bitcoin erin geslaagd om zijn huidige positie boven de $19.000 voor een paar weken te behouden, nu. De munteenheid is zelfs tijdelijk voorbij zijn recordhoogte gegaan en heeft een record voor zichzelf gevestigd, wat velen heeft doen denken dat ergens tussen $20K en $25K mogelijk bereikt zou kunnen worden tegen de tijd dat we klaar zijn om voor eens en voor altijd adios te zeggen tot 2020.

Bloomberg meldt dat de munt tegen volgend jaar potentieel een marktplafond van ongeveer $1 biljoen zou kunnen bereiken. Echter, niet iedereen is van de mentaliteit dat de dingen uiteindelijk zullen werken voor ’s werelds nummer een digitale valuta door de markt GLB.

Nouriel Roubini – ook wel Dr. Doom genoemd dankzij zijn pessimistische houding ten opzichte van het goed – weigert te geloven dat bitcoin enige waarde heeft en becommentarieert nog steeds – net als in het verleden – dat bitcoin niets meer zal zijn dan een neppe munt. In een recent interview stelt hij:

Het heeft geen intrinsieke waarde. Hij wordt door geen enkel goed ondersteund. Het is geen wettig betaalmiddel. Het kan niet worden gebruikt om belastingen te betalen.

Roubini’s grote aanspraak op roem is dat hij de Grote Recessie heeft voorspeld die in het jaar 2008 plaatsvond. Daarnaast heeft hij ook gepleit tegen een proof of stake (PoS) systeem in het verleden, met de bewering dat het veel te veel energie gebruikt om echt effectief en aardvriendelijk te zijn.

Een soortgelijke anti-crypto houding komt van Gary Cohn, een voormalig hoofd economisch adviseur van het Witte Huis. Hoewel hij niet noodzakelijkerwijs iets tegen de asset heeft, zegt hij wel dat het een zich ontwikkelende asset-klasse is, en iedereen die denkt dat het volledig ingeburgerd is, houdt zichzelf voor de gek. Hij geeft commentaar:

En om alle redenen dat het een sterk ontwikkelende activaklasse is, kan het mislukken. Een deel van de integriteit van een activaklasse of een deel van de integriteit van een systeem is weten wie de eigenaar is en weten wie het heeft en weten waarom het wordt overgedragen, en wordt het gebruikt voor legitieme doelen? Wordt het voor goede doeleinden gebruikt, of wordt het voor onwettige doeleinden gebruikt? Wordt het gebruikt in corrupte praktijken op corrupte manieren?

Een gebrek aan integriteit?

Hij beweert ook dat BTC geen transparantie heeft:

Er zijn dus veel mensen die zich afvragen waarom je een systeem nodig hebt dat geen controlespoor heeft, dat niet integer is, dat je niet weet wie de eigenaar is, dat je niet precies weet hoeveel er vandaag de dag bestaat, hoeveel er gedolven is, hoeveel er verloren is gegaan, hoeveel er op de harde schijven is weggegooid omdat ze niet meer bestaan.

Crypto trader explains: why euro stablecoins are in a difficult position

There is still no prominent euro stablecoin, which is unlikely to change anytime soon.

There are several popular stablecoins in the crypto market that are pegged to the US dollar

Although there are also stablecoins linked to the euro, these are much less popular with crypto users, as Zahreddine Touag from the Parisian crypto company Woorton says.

„There is not one Euro stablecoin that has a high level of liquidity,“ as Touag stated on Thursday in a discussion at Blockchain Week in Paris. He gives several reasons for this, the main reason being that it is simply „very expensive to operate a Euro stablecoin“. He explains this as follows:

„The primary source of income for the operators of US dollar-based Crypto Engine is the interest rate, whereby the US dollar has a positive interest rate, while the interest rate in Europe is negative or has been negative for a long time.“

The thesis about the popularity of US dollar-based stablecoins can be confirmed by taking a look at the crypto market. For example, the market-leading stablecoin tether ( USDT ), about which controversy repeatedly arises for other reasons , is tied to the US dollar. Tether is now the fourth largest cryptocurrency with a market capitalization of almost $ 20 billion. Other large stablecoins linked to the US dollar are the USD Coin (USDC) and the TrueUSD (TUSD), which also have considerable market capitalizations.

The few stablecoins based on the euro are far less prominent

The crypto ranking portal CoinMarketCap has a euro stablecoin called Stasis Euro (EURS), but it only has a market value of just under 37 million US dollars.

„The second main reason is that Europe is still a very small player on the crypto market,“ as Touag further clarifies the difficult fate for European stablecoins. “Most of the innovations in this area do not come from Europe, but the big players are in the USA and Asia,” says the expert.

In addition, the stablecoin market has a kind of “winner-takes-all” constellation, because the high liquidity also prompts Touag and his company to prefer Tether to smaller dollar stablecoins such as the USDC: “That’s why we at Woorton also use Tether , even if we actually prefer the USDC, but cash flow, clients and counterparties are with Tether ”.

Mitä Bitcoin-analyytikot odottavat BTC: ltä lyhyellä aikavälillä

„Jännittävä viikko edessämme“: Mitä Bitcoin-analyytikot odottavat BTC: ltä lyhyellä aikavälillä

 

Bitcoin ja salauksen kokonaismarkkinat ovat tällä hetkellä nousussa, ja sonnien tavoitteena on poistaa viimeaikaisesta myynnistä aiheutuneet tappiot.
Paine myydä Bitcoinin kaikkien aikojen korkeimmalla Bitcoin Future tasolla 19 000 dollarin puolivälissä ei ollut yllättävää – mutta se ei välttämättä pysy vahvana seuraavalla kerralla, kun tämä taso testataan.
Elinkeinonharjoittajat uskovat, että tämän päivän puomi ei välttämättä kestä kauan, ja myyntipaineet alle 18 000 dollarin alueella ovat mahdollisesti merkittävä vetovoima kryptovaluutalle.
Yksi elinkeinonharjoittaja huomauttaa erityisesti, että kaikki tärkeimmät tasot osoittavat, että alue, joka on noin 18 400 dollaria, on avainasemassa voittamiseksi.

Viime päivien ja viikkojen aikana Bitcoinin hintatoiminta ei ole juurikaan antanut kauppiaille käsitystä siitä, mihin koko markkinat ovat seuraavana.

Sen jälkeen kun kryptovaluutta nousi kaikkien aikojen korkeimmalle tasolleen 19 500 dollariin, se kohtasi vankan opposition, joka ajoi sen alas 16 400 dollariin.

Tämä myynti myi salausvaluutan ylimyydyille alueille, koska sen hinta koki sen seurauksena valtavan vauhdin ja nosti sen yli 18 000 dollariin.

Missä Bitcoin menee seuraavaksi, riippuu suurelta osin noin 18 400 dollarin alueesta, koska tätä pidetään avaintasona, kuten mainittiin.

Bitcoin on saamassa vauhtia, myyntipaine on helpottumassa

Bitcoinin kaupankäynnin arvo on tällä hetkellä 18 100 dollaria, mikä on huomattava nousu viimeisimmistä 16 400 dollarin alemmista tasoista, jotka asetettiin viime markkinoiden laajuisen myyntitapahtuman lopussa.

Bitcoinin kehitys lähipäivinä ja viikkoina riippuu suurelta osin siitä, voiko omaisuus saada vankan jalansijan alemmalla 18 000 dollarin alueella vai ei. Jos tämä onnistuu, BTC voi olla vahvan ylöspäin suuntautuvan liikkeen kärjessä.

Analyytikko: Kaikki tärkeimmät tasot viittaavat siihen, että BTC nousee $ 18.4K

Elinkeinonharjoittaja twiittasi, että Bitcoin voisi olla nousussa 18400 dollarin partaalla ennen kuin menettää vauhtia ja saa hylkäyksen.

Hän ehdottaa, että tämän tason ylittäminen voi auttaa nostamaan nousutrendiä kohti uusia kaikkien aikojen korkeimpia kohtia.

“BTC: Kaikki tärkeät tasot ovat punaisella alueella. Jos aiomme mennä syvemmälle, se jatkuu sieltä. Mennään alkuun ja ATH on seuraava Imo. Jännittävä [viikko] on edessämme! „

Dans une série de tweets, le grand taureau Bitcoin dit à ses 289000 abonnés Twitter que Bitcoin montre des signes qu’il a atteint un sommet local. Pal utilise l’indicateur DeMark pour chronométrer les opportunités d’entrée et de sortie. Lorsque l’indicateur séquentiel DeMark fait clignoter une lecture de 9, les traders le prennent comme un signe qu’un recul est en vue. Un signal de 13 points à l’épuisement de la tendance.

«Bitcoin est potentiellement confronté à de sérieux progrès techniques… Le quotidien DeMark montre un cluster sur 2 13 et un 9 et demain pourrait en mettre UN AUTRE 13!»

L’investisseur macro-économique examine également le graphique hebdomadaire de la BTC, qui, selon lui, est également en tête.

«L’hebdomadaire accumule également les chiffres les plus élevés… et une correction plus importante semble très possible.»

Pal souligne que le graphique mensuel a également imprimé un décompte séquentiel DeMark de 9.

«Et inquiétant, le mensuel a mis un top 9.»

Pal note que la confluence des principaux signaux sur plusieurs périodes indique la possibilité d’un recul substantiel.

«Tout cela met en jeu les chances d’une correction plus importante, pas une [certitude], mais les principaux modèles de 3 séries chronologiques sont quelque chose à prendre au sérieux et si vous n’êtes pas un HODLer à long terme, vous pouvez envisager une certaine prudence. mérité. “

Pendant ce temps, le trader et analyste crypto Michaël van de Poppe s’attend également à une correction BTC. Dans une nouvelle vidéo, Van de Poppe décrit les niveaux que les investisseurs devraient surveiller si les ours déclenchent un événement de vente.

«Ce que nous voyons ici est toujours la zone hebdomadaire autour du plus haut historique, qui est la zone de résistance. Nous avons les niveaux que nous avons initialement marqués comme intéressants sur la base des niveaux de résistance précédents qui sont sur la période hebdomadaire, le plus important se situant entre 14 000 et 13 500 dollars. Donc, n’importe lequel de ces niveaux est très important si nous obtenons une mesure corrective. Si nous n’obtenons pas cela, nous allons probablement monter en flèche. „

Key metrics of Bitcoin and Ethereum options show that traders are extremely bullish

The price of the Ethereum is now the focus of attention, but option data shows that professional traders are still extremely bullish about the price of Bitcoin.

In the last few days, the price of Bitcoin (BTC) has underperformed Ether (ETH) by almost 20%. Although BTC seems to be struggling to break through the $18,800 barrier, both cryptosystems show the same upward trend according to data from the derivatives markets.

Bitcoin’s performance is outperforming the 2016 halving that caused the all-time high of USD 20,000

Ether is entering a parabolic upswing as the launch of her Eth2 network approaches, and this optimism is reflected in the option markets. Despite the lack of similar price action from BTC, Bitcoin traders don’t seem to be worried and the data shows they’re still extremely bullish.
Ether and BTC futures contracts are still bullish

Analyzing the base indicator is a very useful thing, as it compares the level of futures contracts with the current price on spot (regular) exchanges.

The US dollar is weakening and BTC is approaching $19,000: 5 things to watch out for on Bitcoin this week

Healthy markets usually have an annualized basis of 5% to 10%, this situation is known as contango. On the other hand, discounted counter-futures trading usually occurs during strongly bearish markets.

The basis of Ether’s futures has ranged from 10% to 20%, therefore we can infer that there are bullish expectations. Instead of leaving his Ether holdings in a derivatives exchange, the seller preferred to use them to make a stake. Therefore, it is natural to demand a premium for the operation.

3 reasons why the price of Ethereum is close to USD 600

The BTC futures premium has performed similarly, despite today’s negative performance. If traders had given up expectations of a continuous bull run, this indicator would have sunk below 10% annualized.

There is only one reason for a trader to pay such a costly premium on a futures contract, and that reason is the upside. This indicator can be interpreted as a tax on maintaining long leveraged positions.
Options traders are not interested in opening bearish positions

The 25% delta slope also provides useful information on the sentiment and posture of professional traders.

A delta inclination of +25% indicates that put options are more expensive than similar call options, indicating bearish sentiment. On the other hand, a -25% slope suggests an upward trend.

Follow these 4 tips to avoid being the victim of phishing attacks

The indicator usually ranges from -20% to + 20% in neutral markets, although this has not been the case for Ether in recent weeks.
Inclination of 25% of the delta of ETH’s 3-month futures contracts. Source: Skew

See how Ether’s futures base touched extreme levels of optimism on November 21st, which is very unusual.

This data suggests that option traders are not willing to sell upward protection. At -20%, the tilt indicator indicates that derivatives investors are still bullish despite the 28% rally over the last seven days.

We should expect BTC option traders to be a little less bullish after today’s negative performance, but this has not been the case.

The data shows that BTC option traders are remarkably optimistic, regardless of how difficult the last few days have been. Therefore, there are no signs of a change in sentiment coming from the derivatives markets.

Binance outperforms Huobi and OKEx, positioning itself as the largest derivatives exchange

Although there are many ways to read the same graph according to the technical analysis, BTC has not exactly transpired optimism.

Traders who prefer shorter time frames may have a bearish interpretation of the recent price action. Meanwhile, professional investors know how unpredictable the BTC markets are. Therefore, they are not willing to reduce their positive expectations on a whim.

Key metrics show that institutional demand for Bitcoin is growing rapidly

For now, there seems to be no reason to doubt Bitcoin’s upward momentum. Although Ether has outgrown it, traders are showing the same confidence for both cryptosystems.

CVM marks judgment of Unick Forex financial pyramid for December

More than one after the end of the company and the arrest of those involved, Unick Forex begins to answer for his crimes before the CVM.

CVM marks trial of Unick Forex financial pyramid for DecemberNOTÍCIAS

The Brazilian Securities Commission (CVM) will begin judging one of the country’s largest financial pyramids on December 8: Unick Forex.

Former Unick Forex leaders promote new company that promises 100% ‚profits
The autarchy should begin to judge the actions of three partners of the company, which was closed just over a year ago in a Federal Police operation: Leidimar Lopes, Albieri Lopes and Fernando Lusvarghi.

At the time of the police operation, the partners and the so-called „leaders“ of the company were all arrested, suspected of acting in the pyramid that left a trail of more than R$ 12 billion in embezzlement.

The case against Unick Forex was opened in April 2019 by the Superintendency of Market and Intermediaries Relations (SMI). The CVM had already warned of Unick Forex’s irregular performance, which offered „investments“ in Bitcoin and promised huge returns.

Due to the pandemic, the trial will be by videoconference.

Federal Public Ministry dismantled scheme
Unick Forex is another of the huge financial pyramids of Bitcoin dismantled by the Brazilian authorities in 2019. Among the cases of suspected fraud companies that left losses in excess of billions of reais, we can also mention the Bitcoin Banco Group and Atlas Quantum.

MP opens civil action against Unick and companies that promised revenues with BTC
Unick, which was based in Vale dos Sinos, Rio Grande do Sul, offered profits of up to 400% through investments in cryptomoedas. Like all pyramids of this type, when the entry of new customers cooled, the company began to block lootings from investors and claim problems in the system.

However, the company’s excuses were short-lived. In October 2019, the Federal Police brought down the R$12 billion pyramid and arrested everyone involved, which represented the end of the company. The customers continue without receiving until today.

Partners are loose
Despite the deal that caught those involved with Unick Forex in 2019, more than a year later all the partners of the company are loose. The company had already been in the sights of the authorities since 2017, when banks began reporting suspicious moves.

The public prosecutor even held an auction of the company’s luxury cars in October 2020, but gave no further details about the funds raised and compensation for those harmed by Unick’s crimes.

Telephone tapping reveals that Fernando Salomon tried to strike a blow at Leidimar Lopes in the management of Unick Forex
In an audio leak in March 2020, the leader of the scheme, Leidimar Lopes, complained of the deflated customers „begging“ for R$ 100,000.

Among the findings of the MP’s investigations, the authorities say that Unick even tried to buy a bank and planned to approve the deal with Banco do Brasil with the collaboration of a lobbyist.

With the end of Unick Forex, a legion of „leaders“ – as affiliates who attracted clients to the scheme were known – of the company began to operate in other suspected financial pyramid companies, including MoGuRo.

Unick Forex and its partners also had a hearing scheduled to answer financial crime charges before the courts in the first half of this year, but the pandemic eventually led to a postponement of the case.

15,5 millions de dollars de „bitcoins dormants“ ont été réveillés samedi : Rapport

Cette transaction est la dernière en date d’un certain nombre de mouvements récents de portefeuilles de la CTB qui sont restés inactifs pendant 10

Selon des chercheurs de Btcparser.com

Le 7 novembre à 12h37 HNE, les observateurs de la chaîne de blocage des bitcoins ont noté qu’un certain nombre de bitcoins ont été déplacés d’un portefeuille qui n’avait pas été déplacé depuis 2010. Selon des chercheurs de Btcparser.com, environ 1000 „Bitcoins dormants“, totalisant environ 15,5 millions de dollars, ont été envoyés en une seule transaction.

Le propriétaire de la CTB a également envoyé le BCH correspondant, d’une valeur d’environ 250 000 dollars. Cependant, l’expéditeur n’a pas touché le BCH associé aux pièces.

2020 : L’année des pièces zombie

Après que la transaction principale ait été envoyée à une seule adresse, l’adresse de réception a envoyé des parties du stock à plusieurs autres adresses.

On estime qu’il y a environ 1,5 à 1,8 millions de Bitcoins qui sont considérés comme des „pièces dormantes“ ou „pièces zombies“ de l’ère Satoshi, ce qui signifie qu’elles ont été actives pour la dernière fois pendant la période où le créateur de Bitcoins, Satoshi Nakamoto, était actif dans l’espace.

Ce dernier mouvement de „pièces zombie“ n’est qu’un des nombreux cas similaires qui ont eu lieu cette année.

Par exemple, le 11 mars, Bitcoin.com a signalé qu’un bloc de récompense gagné en 2010 d’une valeur de 1 050 BTC avait été transféré, aux côtés des BCH et BSV correspondants. 151 jours plus tard, une autre récompense en bloc a été transférée le 11 octobre, avec le BCH correspondant.

Depuis lors, au moins quatre autres récompenses en bloc de 2010 ont été envoyées pour la première fois en 10 ans ; les 17, 25, 29 octobre et 1er novembre, environ 200 CTB de 2010 ont été transférées. news.Bitcoin.com indique que ces dernières semaines, environ 80 récompenses en bloc de 2010 ont été déplacées ; la valeur totale des pièces valait plus de 62 millions de dollars au moment de la mise sous presse.

On ignore qui contrôle les pièces, pourquoi elles sont soudainement déplacées après dix ans, ou si elles sont vendues à d’autres revendeurs Bitcoin. Cependant, le mouvement haussier de Bitcoin, qui a dépassé les 15 500 dollars la semaine dernière, pourrait indiquer que celui qui est en charge des pièces se prépare à les vendre si la reprise se poursuit.

Bitcoin: its birth, its 12 years of existence and its future

IN BRIEF

  • It has been 12 years since the Bitcoin white paper was published, created by Satoshi Nakamoto.
  • BeInCrypto has chosen to celebrate this anniversary with a retrospective article on the evolution of BTC and its mission in the relationship between humanity and money.
  • The creation of Bitcoin is and will remain a key moment in modern monetary history.

Twelve years have passed since the publication of the Bitcoin White Paper. Entitled „Bitcoin: A Peer-to-Peer Electronic Cash System“ and published by the mysterious Satoshi Nakamoto on 31 October 2008, it is one of the most transcendental documents in the history of money. More than ten years later, this white paper is still the source of in-depth studies, interpretations and, most of all, unanswered questions.

A peer-to-peer e-money system

Talking about the history of Bitcoin is quite complicated and can be confusing. This is mainly because Bitcoin is not a „thing“ being a by-product of the evolution of something else. Indeed, the core of how Bitcoin works was the result of the adjustment of different principles and sciences that had never been approached in the same way as when it was created. In other words, Bitcoin is a creation derived from the combination of different functionalities that were never brought together, nor were they planned for the purpose that Bitcoin was intended to achieve.

However, given the definition of Bitcoin’s main document, and the inclusion of „peer-to-peer electronic payment system“ in its title, this review provides an excellent starting point. According to this information, Bitcoin was probably intended to meet the definition described in its title. And for this type of purpose, fortunately, there is a history.

A starting point from Milton Friedman

In 1999, Nobel Prize-winning economist Milton Friedman gave an interview to the National Taxpayers Union (NTU). In it, he revealed an idea very close to what Bitcoin is proposing today.

His comments, which seem perfectly synchronised with the white paper that Satoshi Nakamoto published 9 years later, are as follows:

The only thing missing, but soon to be realised, is the real e-caisse. A method by which, on the internet, you can transfer money from A to B, without A knowing B or B knowing A. In the same way, I take a 20 dollar note and give it to you without any trace of where it came from; and you could receive it without knowing who I am.

In his words, Milton Friedman probably proved to be the best and most reliable antecedent of Bitcoin. An antecedent born from a simple thought constructed by one of the world’s greatest economic minds. A thought that was able to describe Bitcoin 9 years before its birth, with a predictive dimension.

Birth of Bitcoin

On Friday 31 October, at 14:10 EDT, the post that changed everything was published by the mailing list „The Cryptography Mailing List“. Entitled „Bitcoin P2P e-cash paper“, the person(s) behind Satoshi Nakamoto’s pseudonym shared an idea based on a „new digital money system“ that would unveil the nomination and founding of Bitcoin for the first time in history.

I worked on a new electronic payment system that is totally peer-to-peer, with no trusted third party.

The document is available at the following address:

https://www.bitcoin.org/bitcoin.pdf

 

Its main properties :

 

Avoid double expenditure with a peer-to-peer network.
There are no entities or other trusted third parties.
Participants can be anonymous.
New parts are issued from a proof of work test in „Hashcash“ style.
The proof of work for the generation of new parts also allows the network to avoid double expenditure.

Excerpt from Satoshi Nakamoto’s original publication where he first shared the Bitcoin project.

The idea was interesting for many cryptography enthusiasts, as Bitcoin was closely related to this science. Similarly, the applications given to „Proof-of-Work“, data storage, and the complete operation of Bitcoin itself presented very coherent and innovative solutions in the field of cryptography at the time. Thanks to the interest gathered, Satoshi ended up working with colleagues on his new project.

On January 8, 2009, just over two months after publication, words turned into deeds: the mysterious creator mined the first block of Bitcoin, with a reward of 50 new BTCs sent to 12c6DSiU4Rq3P4ZxziKxzrL5LmMBrzjrJX, and generated from the entire process described by Satoshi in his first article. A milestone in the modern history of money.

A curious detail, the description of this first block in code contains the headline of The Times newspaper corresponding to January 3, 2009, which announced „(British) Chancellor plans second bank rescue programme“. Apparently, Satoshi called to protest against the excessive printing of money at the time, as a rescue package for the financial collapse of 2008. Bitcoin came at the exact moment when the system of trust was collapsing, with the aim of separating money from the state once and for all.

Bitcoin’s first transaction and its beginnings of exchange

On January 12, 2009, Hal Finney became the first recipient of a peer-to-peer Bitcoin transaction. And yes, it was Satoshi Nakamoto who sent him the first BTCs used for the purpose for which they were created. Finney, on the other hand, became the first person to use the Bitcoin software, and he ended up being one of the main developers of the project during the first year of Satoshi’s creation.

At the end of the same year of creation, more precisely on October 5, the New Liberty Standard was created. Known as Bitcoin’s first buying and selling service, which quoted the cryptom currency for the first time against the dollar at a rate of 1,309.03 BTC for every US dollar.

From then on, Bitcoin’s expansion began to accelerate incredibly: Satoshi Nakamoto created the Bitcointalk space in November 2009, setting up a forum to talk about Bitcoin and encourage its development. In February 2010, the Bitcoin Market, one of the first major platforms for buying and selling Bitcoin using traditional payment methods, was published in this forum.

On 18 July 2010, through the same forum, the mythical Mt Gox was announced, preceded by Jed McCaleb, giving meaning to Bitcoin’s first major trading platform. It also introduced volume values, maximum prices, minimum prices and trading positions; with it, the first steps of the big industry around Bitcoin were laid down to become what we know today. On 12 December 2010, Satoshi Nakamoto published his latest message on the Internet via Bitcointalk. After that, we never heard from him again.

Bitcoin: his future

From a technical point of view, and from the creator’s point of view throughout the history of the project, Satoshi Nakamoto would be proud of what Bitcoin is today. With a current capitalization of $250 billion, Bitcoin preceded an industry that today boasts nearly $400 billion, more than 7,000 different types of crypto-currency and tokens, and countless other companies that generate thousands of jobs and billions of dollars in profits and investment.

Of course, beyond the references to currency, it has managed to deliver what it promised: a new, censor-resistant, inflation-resistant, decentralised, sovereign, portable and digital monetary system that has been maintained for 12 years without any major jolts that might cast doubt on what it has come to achieve in the world.

Today, more than two major companies consider Bitcoin to be insurance against traditional economic collapse. Others are seeking to be part of a new harmonious integration that will allow them to link fiduciary money to decentralised cryptographic money. In truth, Bitcoin is a word known worldwide, with exponential growth in its usability. Thanks to its 12 years of life, it leaves an excellent perspective for the next few centuries that mankind foresees in its relationship with the new money.

Bitcoin avgifter skyrocket, vissa transaktioner som tar dagar, lättnad möjlig nästa vecka

Bitcoin Superstar har upplevt en hel del sammankopplade problem, eftersom hashraten har sjunkit, avgifterna på det överbelastade nätverket har stigit och användarna hävdar att de väntar i flera dagar på att deras transaktioner ska bekräftas – varav vissa kan tappas av gruvarbetarna. En del lättnad kan dock komma nästa vecka.

Och detta händer vid en tidpunkt då BTC ökade med 27% på en månad och nästan slog 14 000 USD innan det korrigerades lägre igen (13 530 USD kl 16:17 UTC idag).

Under tiden, med det klart överbelastade nätverket, kommer dock ett hopp i transaktionsavgiften

Den genomsnittliga Bitcoin-transaktionsavgiften den 28 oktober var 11,67 USD per BitInfoCharts.com. Det spikade särskilt från och med den 19 oktober och klättrade hela 505,5% sedan dess. Det sju dagars glidande genomsnittet visar ett hopp på nästan 210% mellan dessa två datum, till 6,75 USD.

På samma sätt var den genomsnittliga transaktionsavgiften den 28 oktober 6,88 USD, vilket är en massiv ökning från den 17 oktober-nedgången när nästan 0,6 USD registrerades. Sju dagars enkelt glidande medelvärde visar en ökning med 223% på tio dagar till 3,8 USD som registrerades den 28 oktober.

Median transaktionsavgift, USD, 7-dagars enkelt glidande medelvärde

„Avgifterna bör sjunka när svårigheterna justeras tidigt nästa vecka eftersom block kommer att brytas oftare“, säger Bitcoin-utvecklaren Matt Odell, men „vi vet inte hur mycket avgifterna kommer att falla, om transaktionerna kommer att rensas helt och hur lång tid det tar om de gör det. “ Per gruv pool BTC.com är svårt väntas sjunka nästan 10% mer än fyra dagar, som BTC blockera tid överträffade 14 minuter medan målet för den genomsnittliga blocket tiden är 10 minuter.

Människor har kommenterat webbplatser på sociala medier att deras transaktioner inte har bekräftats i timmar eller dagar nu. Andra noterade dock att dessa transaktioner med högre avgifter kommer att bekräftas tidigare, eftersom dessa är mer lönsamma för gruvarbetarna.

Jameson Lopp, Chief Technology Officer för kryptosäkerhetsspecialisten Casa , kommenterade att den senaste tidens nedgång i hashrate, eller beräkningskraften i Bitcoin-nätverket, ledde till att vissa Bitcoin-noder nådde sin fulla kapacitet, så de användare som har sänt lägsta avgiftstransaktioner kan inte se dem bli förmedlade.

Hashrate sjönk nästan 38% från den högsta punkten på 157,65 EH / s och nådde den 17 oktober till 97,95 EH / s tio dagar senare. Det ökade dock med 7% under det senaste dygnet. Lopp noterade tidigare att nedgången förmodligen är ett resultat av att kinesiska gruvarbetare flyttar utrustning för den torra säsongen.

Bitcoin hat gerade das größte Kaufsignal seit mehr als zwei Jahren veröffentlicht, sagt der Top-Krypto-Analyst Nicholas Merten – hier ist, was als nächstes kommt

Der Gründer und Krypto-Analyst von DataDash, Nicholas Merten, sagt, Bitcoin habe gerade sein größtes Kaufsignal seit über 24 Monaten ausgelöst.

In einem neuen DataDash-Video erklärt Merten, warum der wöchentliche Abschluss von Bitcoin über 13.000 US-Dollar ein historischer Meilenstein für die größte Kryptowährung ist

„Gestern haben wir den höchsten wöchentlichen Schlusskurs festgelegt, was wiederum der bedeutende Preis ist, auf den sich die Leute konzentrieren, den höchsten wöchentlichen Schlusskurs seit Mitte Januar 2018. [Es war] mehr als zwei und a Ein halbes Jahr, seit wir an diesem Punkt sind… Das ist also wirklich, wirklich aufregendes Zeug. “

In Bezug auf den festgelegten Preis hebt der Kryptostratege hervor, warum der jüngste Wochenschluss ein starkes bullisches Signal ist.

„Der Grund, warum dies aus technischer Sicht äußerst wertvoll ist, weit über den Wert eines Indikators hinaus, den Sie in Ihren Diagrammen verwenden könnten, liegt darin, dass dies für Bitcoin über einen langen Zeitraum hinweg ein bedeutender Widerstandspunkt war, irgendwo zwischen dem oberen Bereich von 11.000 USD Zurück hier im Februar 2018, hier im Juli und Juni 2019 und auch hier im August 2020. Es ist tendenziell so, dass dieser Bereich zwischen dem oberen Bereich von 11.000 USD und 13.000 USD mehrfach ein umstrittener Widerstandsbereich für Bitcoin war.

Als die Preise versuchten, wieder die 20.000-Dollar-Höchststände zu erreichen, die wir im Dezember 2017 gesehen hatten, hatte der Preis Schwierigkeiten, in diesem Bereich zu bleiben, und tatsächlich wurde er von Leuten, die Bitcoin und Bitcoin gekauft hatten, schnell verkauft, wenn er in diesem Bereich auftauchte Schließlich nahmen sie Gewinne auf ihren Positionen mit, wo der Druck auf der Verkaufsseite begann, die Käufer zu überwiegen. Dieses Mal gibt es wirklich nicht viel Druck auf der Verkaufsseite. Das ist hier der wichtige Faktor: wie [der] Preis hält. “

Merten geht seine bullische Lektüre über den Kryptokönig noch einen Schritt weiter, indem er sich den jährlichen Zeitrahmen ansieht

Laut Merten muss Bitcoin das Jahr 2020 nun zu einem Schlüsselpreis abschließen, um den Beginn einer starken Bewegung in Richtung Allzeithochs anzuzeigen.

„Wir müssen einen Schlusskurs festlegen, und ich würde mir einen deutlichen Schlusskurs über dem Jahreshoch hier von 13.880 USD wünschen. Wenn wir bis Ende des Jahres 14.000, 15.000 US-Dollar für Bitcoin bekommen können, von Oktober, November bis Dezember…

Das ist alles was wir brauchen, um Leute zu sehen. Es ist ein klares verräterisches Zeichen für den Preis in der einfachsten Form der Analyse. Auch hier gewinnt die Einfachheit. Dies ist das einfachste Schlüsselzeichen dafür, dass wir uns auf eine wesentliche Marktbewegung einstellen. “
