La scala di grigi ora possiede il 3% di tutti i Bitcoin in circolazione

Dopo l’acquisto di 16.244 BTC ($ 607 milioni) il 18 gennaio, Grayscale è recentemente diventato il più grande acquirente istituzionale nel mercato Bitcoin Storm. Questo sviluppo è avvenuto dopo un aggiornamento del 15 gennaio da parte dell’azienda, che ha rivelato che le attività totali in gestione di Grayscale erano $ 27,1 miliardi in criptovaluta.

La notizia si è riverberata in tutto lo spazio delle risorse digitali. Il CEO di CoinCorner si è affrettato a richiamare l’attenzione sulle attività dell’azienda e ha affermato :

Charles Edwards, fondatore di Capriole investments, ha avanzato un altro punto importante. Dopo l’acquisto di BTC, Edwards ha notato che Grayscale Investments ora possiede il tre percento di tutti i Bitcoin in circolazione.

Edwards ha affermato che le partecipazioni del gestore del fondo crescono di circa il dieci percento ogni mese e ha previsto che la scala di grigi potrebbe contenere il dieci percento di tutti i Bitcoin entro quest’anno stesso, a condizione che l’azienda rimanga sulla sua traccia attuale. Ha inoltre detto:

La centralizzazione di Bitcoin è passata dagli exchange a wall st. La differenza è che questo è un modello a senso unico

Inoltre, l’AUM della società di investimento è aumentato in modo significativo. A partire dal 14 gennaio, Grayscale ha dichiarato che il suo patrimonio totale gestito (AUM) valeva $ 25 miliardi in criptovaluta.

L’anno scorso, il 30 dicembre, l‘ AUM di Grayscale è stato di 19 miliardi di dollari in risorse digitali. Il 29 dicembre 2020, la società ha riferito che il suo patrimonio gestito è triplicato dal 1 ° novembre 2020, quando aveva $ 7,6 miliardi di asset in gestione.

L’amministratore delegato di Euro Pacific Capital Peter Schiff ha criticato la scala di grigi e ha persino accusato il gestore patrimoniale di „pompare“ Bitcoin agli investitori attraverso le sue pubblicità a pagamento sulla CNBC . Ha anche affermato che la scala di grigi stava alimentando „la bolla di Bitcoin“.

Tuttavia, Barry Silbert di Grayscale si è rivolto a Twitter per rispondere ai commenti di Schiff. Citando una recente intervista in cui Peter Schiff accusa il canale dei media di essere stato „comprato e pagato“ dall’azienda, Silbert ha definito i commenti di Schiff una „grave accusa“.

Adresses uniques de Bitcoin – Pourquoi vous ne pouvez pas faire confiance aux données

  • Les adresses Bitcoin uniques étaient autrefois utiles pour montrer l’adoption de la cryptocarte par les utilisateurs, mais plus maintenant
  • Très peu d’utilisateurs de Bitcoin utilisent une seule adresse, les gros utilisateurs en utilisant des dizaines en peu de temps
  • Ces données sont utiles pour visualiser les tendances générales, mais les numéros d’adresse uniques de Bitcoin n’ont désormais plus aucun sens

La croissance des adresses Bitcoin est souvent citée en exemple pour illustrer l’ampleur de la propagation du bogue Bitcoin, l’hypothèse étant que chaque nouvelle adresse représente un nouvel utilisateur. Cela a peut-être été vrai dans le passé, mais de nos jours, le nombre d’adresses uniques de Bitcoin est une mesure trompeuse qui ne devrait pas être utilisée comme exemple de la croissance des Bitcoins, pour une très bonne raison.

Vous obtenez une adresse, vous obtenez une adresse…

Les données de Blockchain.com montrent que le nombre d’adresses Bitcoin uniques a fortement augmenté au fil du temps, ce qui fait écho à la taille du plafond du marché des cryptocurrences :

Si ce graphique montre sans aucun doute une fluctuation des utilisateurs au fil du temps, les chiffres réels sont assez insignifiants. Autrefois, un utilisateur créait un nouveau portefeuille, générait une adresse et utilisait cette adresse à maintes reprises. Cependant, les temps (et les mesures de sécurité) ont changé depuis lors, et il est donc maintenant recommandé de ne jamais utiliser deux fois la même adresse Bitcoin.

Les adresses uniques de Bitcoin n’ont plus de sens

Heureusement, c’est facile à faire. Les portefeuilles privés produisent souvent un tas d’adresses Bitcoin aléatoires que vous pouvez choisir lors de leur création, ce qui vous permet de passer d’une adresse à l’autre ou d’en créer d’autres, tandis que certaines bourses créent automatiquement une nouvelle adresse Bitcoin chaque fois que vous souhaitez déposer des fonds.

Il ne faut pas être un génie pour voir à quel point cela peut être problématique. Alors que dans le passé, vous aviez peut-être deux ou trois adresses au maximum associées à chaque utilisateur, aujourd’hui, il n’y a aucun moyen de savoir combien d’adresses sont associées à un individu.

Cette bonne pratique de sécurité rend les chiffres associés à des adresses Bitcoin uniques redondants, ce qui laisse les graphiques qui tracent les données associées bons pour visualiser les tendances dans le temps mais inutiles lorsqu’il s’agit d’obtenir des informations utiles et quantifiables.

Crypto Lawyer ve al presidente entrante de la SEC como una victoria para Bitcoin, no para XRP

Crypto Lawyer ve al presidente entrante de la SEC como una victoria para Bitcoin, no para XRP
Jake Chervinsky cree que el nuevo presidente de la SEC será un partidario de Bitcoin.

Es más probable que la aprobación de un ETF de Bitcoin siga al nombramiento de Gensler.

El asesor general de finanzas compuestas y copresidente del grupo DeFi en la Blockchain Association, Jake Chervinsky, cree que la presentación de Gary Gensler como nuevo presidente de la SEC será un paso positivo para Bitcoin a largo plazo.

SEC se convierte en pro-Bitcoin

Hablando en Twitter, Chervinsky comentó lo que creía que sucedería si Gensler se convirtiera en presidente de la SEC. El abogado explica que cree que Gensler impulsaría políticas a favor de Bitcoin.

Se ha informado ampliamente que el recién elegido presidente Joe Biden nombrará a Gesler para el cargo de presidente de la SEC. Un movimiento que probablemente apaciguaría a la comunidad criptográfica.

Bitcoin bueno, ondulación mala?

Gensler tiene una perspectiva positiva sobre las criptomonedas y la adopción de blockchain, llegando incluso a llamar a Bitcoin la forma moderna de oro. También es conocido por impartir cursos sobre blockchain y Bitcoin en el MIT.

Chervinsky comentó sobre el posible nombramiento de Gensler y agregó que Gensler „comprende profundamente las criptomonedas y ha apoyado firmemente a Bitcoin durante años“.

Chervinsky cree además que el nombramiento verá un cambio de política a favor de un fondo cotizado en bolsa de Bitcoin (ETF) .

Gensler también ha declarado anteriormente que existe un caso sólido de que XRP es un valor, lo que podría significar que los problemas actuales y los cargos recientes presentados contra Ripple por la SEC permanecerán.

Continuando con el proceso de pensamiento, Chervinsky explicó que Gensler podría haber cambiado de opinión sobre el funcionamiento de XRP como seguridad. Sin embargo, las posibilidades de que un presidente entrante (que no estuvo presente en la investigación) revierta la decisión de la SEC serían poco probables.

Portugal. Grammy Award winning band The Man launches fan token at Ethereum blockchain

For the first time in the blockchain world, a Grammy award-winning band will use crypto coin tokens to distribute unpublished material.

The Grammy-winning American pop-rock band, „Portugal. The Man“, has launched a crypto-currency for its fans on the Ethereum-based platform, Rally Network. Known as PTM Coin, the new currency will grant fans exclusive access to various events and benefits, such as a live party, new songs and more.

Fanatical tokens emerged as a growing trend in 2020, allowing artists and content creators (and even football players) to establish virtual communities through token economies in a chain of blocks.

When Portugal. The Man launches an archive of previously unreleased performances for token holders this Friday, it will be the first time that Grammy award-winning artists will use cryptomoney to distribute new material.

Portugal. The Man is known for its hit 2017 single „Feel It Still“, which is estimated to have sold 5 million copies in the United States and millions more worldwide. The band was formed by Alaskan natives John Gourley, Zach Carothers, Kyle O’Quin, Zoe Manville, Jason Sechrist and Eric Howk, who now reside in Portland, Oregon.

PTM Coin is hosted on the Rally Network, a digital asset platform built on an Ethereum side-chain that allows artists and content creators to build custom „Creator Coins“.

John Gourlay, lead singer from Portugal. The man, said that the decision to launch a crypt coin for his fans was motivated by a desire to encourage the growth of the community, while at the same time conferring ownership to the fans themselves:

„PTM has always tried to have a direct connection with our audience. We never felt good about charging for Meet & Greets or autograph signings and things like that, we looked for a solution that would allow us to welcome our community, but also give them the opportunity to experience real ownership of what we are doing.
Kevin Chou, co-founder of Rally, said the launch of PTM Coin was „the most substantial release of an artist’s social token“ in the crypto coin space to date and „the first time a world-renowned group has partnered with its community to offer live, unreleased recordings.

The concept of tokens for fans based on blockchain was imposed worldwide in 2020. European football giant F.C Barcelona began experimenting with the social token model in June, leading to a token sale of USD 1.3 million that sold out in just two hours.

Stellar (XLM) rocket takes off and climbs +130% in 24 hours

Long correlated with the price of XRP, the XLM of the Stellar blockchain has just taken off and entered the top 10 of the most capitalized cryptocurrencies. A substantial bullish movement fueled by the woes of its rival cryptocurrency XRP?

XLM takes off

Due to its technical similarities with XRP of Ripple , the XLM of blockchain Stellar has long been correlated with the asset. In addition, the Stellar network is a fork of Ripple created in 2014 under the leadership of its founders Jed McCaled , who is also the co-founder of Ripple.

For several years now, the prices of the two assets have known a significant correlation. But recent events have upset this peculiarity, allowing Stellar to take off.

At the time of writing, XLM is exploding upwards and posting a spectacular increase of over 150% on a weekly basis . How is such a progression explained?

On December 22, the SEC filed a lawsuit against Ripple for illegally selling the equivalent of $ 1.3 billion in XRP. Since then, the price of XRP has been steadily falling and has been halved until it stabilizes around $ 0.25. Many believe that a migration of funds from XRP to XLM then began .

Additionally, the Stellar network and XLM itself appear to be taking advantage of the recent decision by an American institution to allow all banking institutions in the United States to use public blockchains and the stablecoins they host to make payments.

Indeed, Stellar already hosts several stablecoins on its network, such as the famous USDC or the EURB, a stablecoin issued by a German bank

In addition, the XLM reacted quickly after Stellar’s announcement earlier this week that the Ukrainian government had selected its teams to help it create a central bank digital currency.

Since then, Ukraine has downplayed Stellar in this project, and said the XLM would not play any role in the creation of this digital currency. However, this has not stopped investors from rushing into cryptocurrency.

We must not forget that this is happening when the market is experiencing a substantial euphoric phase. Besides the fundamental aspect of Stellar, the technical plan was particularly favorable to such a rise.
