Bitcoin pysyy vahvana PayPalin ansiosta

Kirjoitushetkellä Bitcoin Code on ottanut jonkin verran kärsimystä, vaikka 17 800 dollarin valuutalla on jonkin verran parempi kuin noin 24 tuntia sitten. Valuutta menetti alun perin yli 2000 dollaria alhaisemmasta hinnasta kauppaa varten matalalla 17 000 dollarin alueella, ja monet analyytikot alkoivat ilmaista huolestuneisuutensa siitä, että BTC: n kaikkien aikojen ennätystä ei saavuteta tänä vuonna.

Bitcoinin ostaminen jatkuu nousussa

Ennen kaikkea tätä negatiivista rengasta valuutta kuitenkin nousi kuin koskaan ennen. Suoraan sanottuna voidaan silti väittää, että se on vankalla paikalla, ja monet ihmiset eivät voineet olla teloittamatta aivojaan saadakseen vastauksen siihen, miksi maailman suurin ja suosituin digitaalinen omaisuus – joka oli juuttunut melko heikkoon asemaan viimeinen puolitoista vuotta – oli yhtäkkiä nousussa.

Joidenkin alan asiantuntijoiden mukaan vastaus liittyy PayPaliin. Kyllä, yritys antaa käyttäjien ostaa salauksen sivustonsa kautta.

Kyllä, yritys antaa käyttäjille mahdollisuuden ostaa tuotteita ja palveluita bitcoinilla ja muulla digitaalisella valuutalla, mutta tämä haaleaa verrattuna heidän mielestään todelliseen syyn. Ilmeisesti PayPal ostaa lähes 70 prosenttia uusista louhittavista bitcoineista, mikä tarkoittaa, että yrityksen on määrä omistaa lähes kolme neljäsosaa uudesta BTC-toimituksesta.

Uutiset tulevat Pantera Capitalin kautta, joka väittää äskettäisessä lausunnossaan, että PayPalin ansiosta todennäköisesti tulevina viikkoina ja kuukausina tulee olemaan bitcoin-puute uusien löytämiensä ostosten ansiosta. Lausunnossaan yritys selittää:

Kun PayPal julkaistiin, äänenvoimakkuus alkoi räjähtää. [Paxosin suorittaman bitcoin- ja krypto-vaihdon] itBit-määrän kasvu tarkoittaa, että PayPal ostaa jo lähes 70 prosenttia uudesta bitcoin-tarjonnasta neljän viikon kuluessa lähetyksestä.

Väitetysti tämä on käynnistänyt ostovaiheen ihmisten keskuudessa, jotka pelkäsivät, ettei heillä olisi mahdollisuutta lisätä salausta omiin salkkuihinsa, koska PayPal otti kaiken itselleen. Kun niin monet ihmiset haluavat ostaa, hinnalla ei ollut muuta vaihtoehtoa kuin nousta merkittävästi.

Lausunnossa sanotaan edelleen:

Tämä ralli on paljon kestävämpi kuin vuonna 2017. Yksi tärkeimmistä eroista on Bitcoiniin sijoittamisen helppous nyt PayPalin, Cash Appin, Robinhoodin jne. Kautta.

Ihmiset tekevät raskasta nostoa

Latinalainen Amerikka, salausvaihdon Bitso Alpha johtaja Eduardo Arenas mainitsee, että uusia bitcoin-käyttäjiä ja bitcoin-ostajia on valtava aalto ja että vaikka PayPal todennäköisesti innoitti hintatoimintaa, yksittäiset kauppiaat pitävät sitä yllä. Hän sanoo:

Hintatoiminnan alkaessa näemme uusien käyttäjien aaltoja, mutta mikä tärkeintä, olemme nähneet merkittävää käyttäjien kasvua hiljaisempina aikoina viimeisen vuoden aikana.

Bigger than Visa – Bitcoin cracks 25,000 US dollars and hangs up on big „competitor“.

With a new record high of over 25,000 US dollars, Bitcoin’s market capitalisation is now larger than Visa’s.

Yesterday, 25 December, Bitcoin (BTC) climbed above the US$25,000 mark on the crypto exchange Bitstamp, setting (yet another) new record high. At the same time, the market-leading cryptocurrency has thus reached a larger market capitalisation than payment giant Visa.

Leading payments group Visa has a market value of US$460.06 billion as of today, 26 December, according to Yahoo Finance, whereas Bitcoin now stands at more than US$462 billion.

Apples and oranges?
Bitcoin is a peer-to-peer (P2P) based blockchain protocol, while Visa is a for-profit commercial Bitcoin Bank enterprise. This might lead the reader to conclude that a comparison between the two is not valid.

Nevertheless, the comparison of the two „payment systems“ has a symbolic value, as the current market capitalisation makes Bitcoin currently the thirteenth largest company in the world (see above).

Institutional investor interest in Bitcoin has received a significant boost in 2020. Demand from large investors is now growing exponentially, and with the cryptocurrency now outpacing another major ‚competitor‘ in the form of Visa, institutional investor confidence could be further boosted.

More and more institutions and large investors are entering the crypto market through the large asset management firm Grayscale and the bitcoin futures of CME Group’s options exchange. Grayscale’s assets under management are now already close to $17 billion, while the CME bitcoin futures‘ open interest is consistently above $1 billion.

Ironically, Visa itself has shown increasing interest in the crypto market in recent months, now that the two major payment service providers and competitors Paypal and Square are also betting on Bitcoin.

For example, Wirex, a company that issues Visa debit cards for cryptocurrencies, has been named a strategic partner of Visa Europe. Cuy Sheffield, Visa’s senior director of cryptocurrencies, says in this regard:

„Digital currencies have the potential to extend the value of digital payments to even more people and geographies. We’re excited to partner with innovative fintech companies like Wirex, which enables their customers to pay with digital currencies at more than 61 million retailers on the Visa network.“
What’s next for Bitcoin?
Meanwhile, crypto experts are confident that things will continue to go up for Bitcoin, at least in the short term.

For example, crypto analyst Intotheblock says that a key support area has emerged between US$23,069 – US$23,377, which can underpin the recent uptrend. To this effect, he writes:

„Bitcoin has managed to consolidate above US$23,000. The IOMAP indicator reinforces this thesis as it shows strong support between US$23,069 – US$23,377.1. In this range, close to 900,000 addresses had recently bought 796,000 BTC.“

As long as Bitcoin can hold above the important support ranges, experts believe that the uptrend will remain intact.

Cointelegraph expert Michael van de Poppe, who is a full-time trader on the Amsterdam Stock Exchange, believes that the crypto market may soon crack its record market capitalisation of $780 billion. He explains this as follows:

„The overall market capitalisation of all cryptocurrencies looks extremely positive as it has advanced to the heights of its record high. The key is to keep an eye on the $550bn and $450bn marks, as these represent good buying opportunities in a downturn. Provided they are not undercut, the market could crack the previous record high with its next bounce.“

Europäisches Roulette

Unter allen Roulette-Variationen sowohl in landbasierten als auch in Online-Casinos ist europäisches Roulette die Präferenz der Mehrheit der Spieler. Der Grund für seine große Beliebtheit ist, dass es einem Spieler eine größere Gewinnchance bietet, da der Hausvorteil hier lediglich 2,63% beträgt.

Wie bereits erwähnt, hat das europäische Roulette-Rad 37 Abteilungen , in denen Zahlen von 1 bis 36 und 0 zu finden sind. Zahlen von 1 bis 36 sind abwechselnd rot und schwarz gefärbt, während die einzelne Null grün markiert ist.

Das Hauptziel, das jeder Spieler verfolgt, ist die Vorhersage, in welcher nummerierten Tasche sich der Rouletteball niederlassen wird. Dazu setzen alle Spieler auf eine bestimmte Zahl. Danach dreht der Dealer das Roulette-Rad in eine Richtung und dreht den Roulette-Ball in die entgegengesetzte Richtung . Sobald der Ball mit dieser bestimmten Nummer in die Tasche gelangt, werden die jeweiligen Spieler bezahlt.

Grundregeln des Spiels

Wenn man europäisches Roulette online spielt, wird man feststellen, dass der Wettprozess relativ einfach ist. Der Spieler muss seine Chips auf den gewünschten Einsatz setzen und den “ Spin “ -Knopf drücken. Sobald die Wettrunde beendet ist, muss er oder sie wählen, ob er oder sie eine weitere Wette platzieren ( Schaltfläche “ Wetten „) oder das Spiel abbrechen (Schaltfläche “ Wetten löschen “ ).

In landbasierten Casinos ist der Wettprozess wie folgt.

Normalerweise nehmen vier Mitarbeiter des Casinos am Roulette-Tisch teil . Zwei von ihnen sind als Croupiers bekannt und ihre Hauptfunktion besteht darin, die Wetten abzuwickeln und den Ball in das Roulette-Rad zu drehen. Die anderen beiden Casino-Mitarbeiter sind als “ Table-End “ (“ Bout de Table „) und “ Game Supervisor “ (“ Chef de Partie „) bekannt, die sicherstellen müssen, dass das Spiel reibungslos läuft.

Die Anzahl der Teilnehmer am Roulette-Tisch liegt normalerweise zwischen 1 und 8. Das Roulette-Spiel wird gestartet, sobald der Croupier “ Platzieren Sie Ihre Wetten “ (oder “ Faites vos jeux „) ruft . Spieler dürfen jetzt die Art von Wetten abschließen, die wir später in diesem Artikel erwähnen werden. Als nächstes legt der Croupier den Ball für eine Drehung auf das Roulette-Rad. Sobald der Ball noch zwei Umdrehungen vor sich hat, ruft der Croupier „Keine Wetten mehr“ (oder “ Rien ne va plus „).

Ab diesem Zeitpunkt werden Wetten, die platziert werden, normalerweise nicht mehr berücksichtigt. Sobald der Ball in eine der 37 nummerierten Taschen fällt, identifiziert der Croupier die Gewinnnummer und gibt sie bekannt. Verlorene Wetten werden dem Haus übergeben, während alle gewinnenden Wetten ausgezahlt werden.

Chainalysis sobre por que Bitcoin está seurgindo e como se compara ao Rally de 2017

O bitcoin aumentou 4,5% nas últimas 24 horas de negociação a $18.710. A moeda mais alta quebrou acima do nível de $18.000 na quarta-feira, chegando a $18.483, para atingir seu preço mais alto desde dezembro de 2017.

Ao preço atual, a Bitcoin Machine está a menos de US$ 1.500 de tocar o máximo histórico de pouco menos de US$ 20.000 que foi visto pela última vez durante o rally de investidores de 2017.

De acordo com um relatório do provedor de dados e insights Chainalysis, o aumento contínuo do preço, embora comparável ao aumento de preços de 2017, „difere de algumas formas fundamentais“. Há tanto condições-chave que impulsionam o rali quanto algumas formas em que ele é diferente das condições de mercado de 2017.

A demanda de Bitcoin é agora maior do que sua oferta

Chainalysis afirmou:

„O preço da Bitcoin está aumentando porque a demanda pela Bitcoin está aumentando em um momento em que há relativamente poucas Bitcoin disponíveis para comprar“.

O número de bitcoins em circulação aumenta a cada dia à medida que mais é extraído, mas a oferta de Bitcoin no mercado agora depende se os detentores existentes estão dispostos a vender ou comercializar suas bitcoins.

De acordo com o relatório, Chainalysis analisa a vontade dos investidores em Bitcoin de negociar, comparando a liquidez e a iliquidez do bitcoin desde 2017.

A liquidez ocorre quando os investidores enviam mais de 25% das bitcoins já mantidas em suas carteiras, enquanto a iliquidez é para investidores que enviam menos de 25% do total de suas bitcoins. A iliquidez é freqüentemente causada por investidores que planejam „comprar e hodl“, que planejam manter a bitcoin por um longo período de tempo.

A quantidade de bitcoin líquido no mercado no momento é similar à de 2017. Entretanto, o relatório afirma que 77% da bitcoin é mantida em carteiras ilíquidas, o que representa 14,8 milhões de Bitcoin que não se movimenta há cinco ou mais anos.

„Isso deixa um pool de apenas 3,4 milhões de Bitcoin prontamente disponível aos compradores à medida que a demanda aumenta“.

O aumento da intensidade do comércio e o influxo para as trocas são dois bons indicadores do crescimento da demanda. Dados de Chainalysis indicam que a intensidade do comércio está agora 38% acima da média de 180 dias.

Demanda institucional em Bitcoin

Ao contrário de 2017, quando os indivíduos e os varejistas que se preocupavam com a tecnologia estavam comprando bitcoin, a demanda atual foi impulsionada pela demanda institucional por parte dos investidores que procuravam uma cobertura contra a inflação do fiat induzida pelo coronavírus.

Em 2020, investidores de alto nível como Paul Tudor Jones, Michael Saylor e, mais recentemente, Salinas Pliego investiram milhões em Bitcoin.

„A mudança institucional para a moeda criptográfica parece ser impulsionada por um desejo de se proteger contra a incerteza macroeconômica, que naturalmente não tem sido escassa este ano“.

Chainalysis concluiu que a nova tendência no investimento institucional da Bitcoin é uma boa notícia para o mercado criptográfico.

„Os investidores se tornaram mais savvier, e mais estratégicos, comprando bitcoin para cumprir um caso de uso específico, em vez de especular sobre o novo ativo quente“.

Se a Bitcoin mantiver sua capacidade de se proteger contra a inflação, mais investidores institucionais investirão mais dinheiro no ativo e levarão a uma adoção mais generalizada.

Black Friday, discounts and offers in the crypto world

Black Friday does not leave the cryptocurrency sector indifferent either, with discounts, offers and promotions on accessories and services.

The Black Friday of Tradingview

On the occasion of Black Friday Tradingview, the site where to consult charts and tables of financial markets and crypto, offers a special promo with discounts up to 60%.

Specifically, these are the offers:

  • Plan Pro, -40%, $108 instead of $179.4 for 13 months;
  • Piano Pro+, -50%, $179 instead of $359.4 for 13 months;
  • Premium Plan, -60%, $288 instead of $719.4 for 13 months.

Unlike the basic plan, which is free of charge, paid plans allow you to eliminate advertising. In addition, the higher the cost of the subscription, the more features will be available.

You can see the difference between the plans and the features on the site.

The offer is valid until Saturday 28 November.

Ledger’s promotions

Ledger, the hardware wallet company, offers a 40% discount on its products, using the BlackFriday20 code. The promo is valid from 23rd to 30th November.

The purchase system is very simple: just select the hardware wallet model, between Ledger Nano S (59 euro) and Ledger Nano X (119 euro), add them to the cart and before purchasing, in the space provided, insert the BlackFriday20 code to get 40% discount. In practice, the Ledger Nano X will cost 71,39 euro, while the Ledger Nano S will cost 45,16 euro (but it is affected by 8 euro shipping costs).

Bitcoin Black Friday

For those looking for various discounts, there is a very interesting site that is BitcoinBlackFriday. In spite of the name, the site actually works as a collector of promotions in the cryptocurrency sector, throughout the year. Divided by categories, it allows you to find offers in areas such as products, hardware, media, and even art and exchange.

For example, BitcoinBlackFriday warns that Coinmama is giving a 20% discount on commission costs at BlackFriday. Clicking on is redirected directly to the exchange.

In short, a tour on this site is particularly useful for lovers of the sector.

What is Black Friday

But what is Black Friday? It is a tradition that comes from the United States: it would be the day after Thanksgiving, which is usually the fourth Thursday in November. Black Friday (or Black Friday) is a day of discounts that inaugurates Christmas shopping.

There are various theories as to why the colour black:

  • Black was the colour in which shopkeepers recorded their accounts in the books, and after a day of sales the books were definitely marked with the colour black (while red indicated loss-making accounts);
  • Black would represent the traffic caused by the congestion of public and private transport in the shopping streets.

In any case, this tradition has evolved over the years. Besides being exported all over the world, it has also been extended. We are now talking about „Black Friday week“. It now continues practically until the following Monday, the so-called „Cyber Monday“, a day of discounts dedicated to the tech sector.

But remember not to be fooled by excessive discounts. Days like Black Friday and Cyber Monday lend themselves to easy scams. So it’s always good to use caution and not to get carried away by the euphoria of unusually low prices.
