Bitcoin tritt über Support Stufen ins Wasser

von am Januar 20, 2021
  • Bitcoin handelt innerhalb eines symmetrischen Dreiecks.
  • Es gibt einen Widerstand bei $37.700.
  • BTC handelt innerhalb einer komplexen korrigierenden Struktur.

Der Bitcoin (BTC) Preis wurde am 19. Januar vom $37.700 Widerstandsbereich zurückgewiesen und fiel unmittelbar danach.

Dennoch hält sich Bitcoin immer noch über der Unterstützung und es wird erwartet, dass er seine Konsolidierung wieder aufnimmt.

Bitcoin in einem symmetrischen Dreieck

Bitcoin hat die Konsolidierung innerhalb des symmetrischen Dreiecks seit dem 4. Januar fortgesetzt. Gestern wurde er vom 0,618 Fib-Retracement-Level der jüngsten Abwärtsbewegung bei $37.709 zurückgewiesen und fiel stark ab.

Allerdings handelt BTC immer noch oberhalb der Unterstützungslinie dieses Dreiecks. Die technischen Indikatoren sind neutral und können die Trendrichtung nicht bestätigen.

Die Messwerte der Tages-Chart sind mehrdeutig. Während der MACD und der Stochastic-Oszillator bärisch sind, hat der RSI auf dem Tages-Chart eine signifikante versteckte zinsbullische Divergenz erzeugt – ein starkes Zeichen für eine Trendfortsetzung.

Während also eine Aufwärtsbewegung als Ergebnis der versteckten zinsbullischen Divergenz auftreten könnte, scheint es, dass der längerfristige Trend bärisch ist.

BTC-Wellenzählung

In der gestrigen Bitcoin-Analyse von BeInCrypto stellten wir fest, dass;

„Die Wellenzählung deutet darauf hin, dass BTC innerhalb einer komplexen W-X-Y-Korrektur handelt (unten in orange dargestellt), in der die X-Welle ein Dreieck ist. Dies passt auch zur längerfristigen Zählung, die darauf hindeutet, dass BTC von der im September 2020 beginnenden Aufwärtsbewegung korrigiert wird.“

BTC hat möglicherweise die C-Welle des Dreiecks mit seiner gestrigen Ablehnung abgeschlossen und befindet sich nun wahrscheinlich in der D oder E-Welle. Nach Abschluss der Formation wäre eine Korrektur zu erwarten. Dies würde durch einen Rückgang unter das Tief der B-Welle bei 33.833 $ (rote Linie) bestätigt werden.

Auf der anderen Seite würde ein Anstieg über das A-Wellen-Hoch von $40.112 wahrscheinlich darauf hinweisen, dass sich BTC immer noch in einem Aufwärtstrend befindet.

Es ist möglich, dass sich BTC noch in der C-Welle befindet, aber das lässt sich zu diesem Zeitpunkt nicht feststellen. Dieses Szenario hätte keinen Einfluss auf das längerfristige Bild oder die Bullish/Bearish-Invalidierungslevel.

Fazit

Es wird erwartet, dass Bitcoin seine Konsolidierung innerhalb seines symmetrischen Dreiecks fortsetzt, bevor es nach unten ausbricht. Ein Rückgang unter $33.833 würde bestätigen, dass die Korrektur begonnen hat.

Bitcoin inventor Satoshi Nakamoto exposed by misspelling?

von am Januar 9, 2021

The guessing game about Satoshi Nakamoto goes into the next round in 2021. New impetus is provided by an analysis of the Bitcoin inventor’s writing habits.

More than 12 years after the Bitcoin whitepaper was published, the identity of its author remains a mystery. Now the team at Ungeared.com has joined in the speculation surrounding Satoshi Nakamoto. Because on December 31st, a statistical study appeared there, which has Satoshi’s spelling as a topic.

The article responds to a line of argument that claims to have identified Great Britain as the home of the Crypto Superstar inventor. Since some of the arguments were based on Satoshi’s spelling, the authors decided to subject it to a statistical test. They took advantage of the fact that a number of words are spelled differently in American English than in British English. In addition to the Bitcoin whitepaper, Satoshi’s well-known emails and blog posts were also the subject of the analysis.

Satoshi’s spelling: no pattern to be seen

The authors of the study were able to highlight a total of 108 cases that are relevant to their concerns. In terms of spelling, this results in the following breakdown: „American – 52, British – 35, and misspelled – 21.“ Satoshi thus makes use of both American and British spellings.

Even more, no discernible pattern can be discerned by which Satoshi switches between the two writing styles. Even the same word sometimes appears in British spelling and then again in American spelling. Even within the same email, the Bitcoin inventor varies his spelling habits. Only when it comes to coding does he remain largely faithful to American.

Where does the Bitcoin inventor come from?

The inconsistencies just mentioned seem to need explanation. As one hypothesis, for example, the authors suggest that the Bitcoin inventor is Canadian. This is because Canadian English mixes the spelling of British and American in some respects. Since Satoshi primarily uses American for coding, it is also conceivable that he is actually British, but programs in American English.

However, this does not explain Satoshi’s spelling mistakes. Here it would be conceivable that English is simply not the native language of the Bitcoin inventor. (The authors do not consider this possibility.) The seemingly arbitrary switch between different spelling styles could also be explained in this way.

In the end, the study’s findings leave more questions unanswered than answered. Could Satoshi Nakomoto be more of a collective than a loner, as is often assumed? The possibility that the inconsistent spelling was a deliberately chosen strategy by the Bitcoin inventor to make the traces as unrecognizable as possible cannot be ruled out. If this is the case, Nakamoto is still beating all Bitcoin archaeologists years after the white paper publication.

United States – Kraken criticizes Treasury regulatory proposal that threatens crypto industry

von am Januar 8, 2021

Kraken and other major players such as Coinbase and Square are rising to criticize the U.S. Treasury Department’s proposal. The new provisions contemplate the monitoring of cryptographic transactions to private wallets.

Kraken responds to the Treasury

The Kraken platform claims that FinCEN’s new proposal to monitor personal cryptographic wallets will prevent the adoption of the blockchain and hamper law enforcement efforts. Kraken is the latest company to make public its opposition to the proposed regulation by FinCEN, an office of the U.S. Treasury Department.

If adopted, the proposal would require exchanges to retain and report certain information about its customers‘ cryptographic transactions beyond what is required today for cash transactions.

In his letter to Bitcoin Blueprint, published Tuesday, January 5, Kraken said the proposed regulation departs significantly from existing law, adding that it also imposes excessive requirements on industry players.

Kraken also expressed interest in the timing of the 15-day public comment period proposed by FinCEN as opposed to the usual 60-day consultation period.

We can read in the press release :

«It appears that FinCEN has proposed this short time frame to avoid scrutiny and virtually eliminate public input. (…) »

Other major players are moving into the market niche

Coinbase has also been virulent in the face of the US Treasury Department’s proposal. The exchange denounces a process that is itself marked by a certain hostility towards the crypto-blockchain industry: „us against them“. The exchange also highlights the deliberately short timeframe and the lack of justification by the Treasury.

Jack Dorsey’s Square also reacted and argues that FinCEN’s proposal will not help current law enforcement efforts, and may even have the opposite effect by driving customers away from regulated transaction services into opaque, unregulated channels.

Jack Dorsey explained :

«This proposal will impede financial inclusion, is impractical, is arbitrary. It will promote innovation and employment outside the United States and regulated institutions.»

Despite the short consultation period, FinCEN received many criticisms, and nearly 6,000 comments were received.

L’éther atteint son plus haut niveau en 2020 alors que Bitcoin dépasse les 22 000 dollars

von am Dezember 17, 2020

Alors que tous les yeux sont tournés vers les nouveaux sommets historiques de Bitcoin, certains analystes prédisent de l’éther à quatre chiffres dans les mois à venir.

Alors que Bitcoin continue à atteindre de nouveaux sommets

Alors que Bitcoin (BTC) continue à atteindre de nouveaux sommets, Ether (ETH) a également atteint de nouveaux sommets depuis le début de l’année, suite à l’annonce du Chicago Mercantile Exchange qui prévoit de lancer des contrats à terme ETH en 2021.

La BTC a atteint de nouveaux sommets le 16 décembre, gagnant 10 % en une journée, passant de 19 140 à 21 340 dollars. Le 17 décembre, la BTC a prolongé la reprise de 4 % supplémentaires jusqu’à présent, le marché cherchant actuellement un soutien proche de 21 800 $ après avoir affiché un sommet local de 22 160 $.

Alors que de nombreux traders semblent collés aux graphiques Bitcoin, l’Ether a également atteint de nouveaux sommets annuels après avoir gagné 8,5% hier. Aujourd’hui, le prix a atteint un sommet local de 656 $ sur le BitMEX, les marchés se situant actuellement à un demi pour cent au-dessus du prix de clôture d’hier de 640 $.

Le rallye a fait suite à l’annonce que CME a l’intention de lancer des contrats à terme ETH en 2021, en attendant l’approbation des autorités réglementaires. Elle a cité la forte demande des clients pour ce produit.

CME a lancé ses contrats à terme Bitcoin en décembre 2017

CME a lancé ses contrats à terme Bitcoin en décembre 2017, ce qui a marqué le sommet du rallye historique de cette année-là.

Certains prédisent des mouvements à la hausse encore plus importants pour l’ETH à venir. L’utilisateur de Twitter „Altcoin Sherpa“ a noté que l’ETH a commencé des rallyes de plusieurs mois en décembre, un mois qui a vu des gains d’au moins 100% pour chacune des trois dernières années. Ainsi, l’analyste prévoit que l’ETH dépassera bientôt les 1000 dollars pour la première fois depuis 2017.

Le taureau perma Ethereum „Wolfofethereum.eth“ a spéculé que „le spectacle $ETH ne fait que commencer“, soulignant que l’Ether a surpassé la CTB de 185% au cours des 12 derniers mois.

Anthony Sassano, de Set Protocol, a publié une image comparant les mesures d’Ethereum lorsqu’il a dépassé les 500 dollars la dernière fois et la situation actuelle – notant une augmentation de 900% des développeurs actifs, une augmentation de 80% du nombre de transactions sur 24 heures, une augmentation de 60% des adresses actives et une augmentation de 150% du taux de hachage du réseau.

Les courts-métrages de l’ETH/BTC sur Bitfinex sont actuellement à un niveau record, ce qui suggère que les marchés s’attendent à ce que l’Ether gagne du terrain sur le BTC dans un avenir prévisible. Les longs ETH/BTC sont à leur plus haut niveau depuis février 2018.

The sting in the Bitcoin wasp’s nest: Raoul Pal doesn’t think KYC is that bad

von am November 30, 2020

Raoul Pal is actually a bitcoin bull. With theses on the necessary crypto regulation, he is now turning privacy-oriented Bitcoiners against himself on Twitter.

The opinion ECHO

For once he didn’t make any friends there. Raoul Pal is actually known for his support from the traditional financial sector. The former hedge fund manager and CEO of the financial medium Real Vision is regarded as an outright Immediate Edge bull and brings the value proposition closer to a less crypto-savvy audience in weekly updates.

Pal recently even founded its own division with Real Vision Crypto , which is solely dedicated to the weal and woe of BTC and Co. The entrepreneur caused a stir with a tweet that the Bitcoin community didn’t like.

If you believe that government secrecy and not KYC is the future of bitcoins, then you don’t understand what the spread looks like. Bitcoin will be regulated. You will have to do KYC and that is fine. That doesn’t take away from Bitcoin its value proposition, it just reinforces it.

Raoul Pal via Twitter

KYC (know your customer) is an unpopular term in Bitcoin circles. Behind this is the practice of assigning Exchange accounts to a real name, which in case of doubt provides information about the crypto activities of the respective person. This is common practice when opening bank accounts in the traditional financial sector.

Bitcoin wants to be an alternative to the traditional financial sector – from the point of view of the community, KYC undermines Bitcoin’s resistance to censorship and thus a fundamental feature that makes Bitcoin what it is. The resistance on Twitter was correspondingly high.

Cette tendance suggère que Bitcoin est extrêmement haussier malgré sa récente cession

von am Oktober 31, 2020

Bitcoin a connu une forte vente du jour au lendemain qui a fait que son prix a effacé la plupart des gains réalisés au cours des deux derniers jours

Cette vente s’est faite à un niveau de résistance crucial, la pression de vente à 13 800 dollars s’avérant importante
Il s’agit d’un niveau historique, car c’est là que la CTB s’est ralliée avant de faire face à un fort rejet à l’été 2019
Le rejet ici était grave, mais la cryptocouronne a encore de multiples facteurs qui jouent en sa faveur
Un analyste pointe du doigt une prime au comptant comme l’un des facteurs susceptibles de renforcer la CTB

Ces dernières heures ont été difficiles pour Bitcoin et le marché de la cryptographie agrégée, car la cryptocarte de référence a connu une forte baisse après que son prix ait atteint 13 800 dollars.

La pression de vente à ce niveau de prix a été importante et s’est produite rapidement, ce qui suggère qu’il pourrait s’écouler un certain temps avant que nous ne voyions un mouvement soutenu au-delà de 14 000 $.

Malgré le caractère ouvertement baissier de ce déclin, il y a encore de nombreux facteurs qui jouent en faveur des taureaux.

L’un de ces facteurs est une prime à l’achat de bitcoins au comptant par rapport aux contrats à terme, ce qui suggère qu’il existe actuellement une vague d’intérêt de la part des particuliers et des institutions qui stimule la demande de CTB au comptant.
Bitcoin rejette à 13 800 $, et plonge vers un soutien clé

Au moment où nous écrivons ces lignes, Bitcoin est en baisse d’un peu plus de 2 % à son prix actuel de 13 320 dollars. C’est à peu près le prix auquel il s’est négocié ces derniers jours, mais il marque une sérieuse baisse par rapport à ses sommets quotidiens.

Ces sommets ont été fixés hier après-midi lorsque la crypto a atteint 13 800 $. Le rejet ici a été grave et a instantanément déclenché une baisse qui a conduit la BTC à son niveau de prix actuel.

Le fait qu’elle puisse ou non trouver un soutien autour de son prix actuel devrait donner un aperçu significatif de ses perspectives à court terme.
Analyste : La demande pour le spot BTC est un signe haussier

Tout en partageant ses réflexions sur les perspectives actuelles de Bitcoin, un analyste a expliqué qu’une prime observée en regardant vers le spot BTC indique qu’il existe une demande massive de la part des particuliers, des entreprises et des institutions.

Il estime qu’il s’agit d’un signe très haussier.

„Un prix spot plus élevé et un volume spot plus important (relativement parlant) sont considérés comme haussiers car cela signifie que la hausse est basée sur un achat réel au lieu de dégénérer en un jeu sur les dérivés“.

Où les tendances du marché dans les prochains jours devraient déterminer l’importance à long terme de ce rejet de Bitcoin. Un déclin soutenu pourrait être un signe très baissier.

Crypto Buoyed by Bitcoin As Stocks Feel the FUD

von am Oktober 26, 2020

A Bitcoin continua sua tendência ascendente, levando consigo a maioria das principais moedas. A Filecoin luta contra uma ação de retaguarda enquanto a confiança no estoque permanece baixa.

Em resumo

  • A Crypto comercializa otimista enquanto a Bitcoin continua seu forte desempenho.
  • Os investidores na Filecoin observam enquanto a rede é abalada por relatos de revolta.
  • Os mercados de ações passaram por uma grande venda, pois a confiança sobre um pacote de estímulos continua baixa.

Foi um dia particularmente bom em todos os mercados criptográficos. A capitalização total do mercado subiu 2,3%, levando-o a mais de 372 bilhões de dólares. Bitcoin lidera a carga com um ganho de 3,4%, com Monero acompanhando com 3,4% de aumento, a corrida contínua da Stellar viu a carga subir 5,3% no último dia e o XRP também subiu 3,17%.

O que tem o HODLers de tão bom humor? É difícil dizer, mas uma teoria tem a ver com o desempenho do Bitcoin como um ativo que não se comporta da mesma forma que o estoque e ou o ouro.

Enquanto que os gostos do S&P e do Dow Jones terminaram ontem no vermelho, assim como o ouro, o Bitcoin está tendendo para o outro caminho. „Isto sinaliza aos investidores que há um ativo que parece ser mais resistente a flutuações geopolíticas como Brexit e as Eleições Gerais dos EUA“. Tornou-a uma proposta atraente“, diz um porta-voz da AAX, a primeira bolsa de ativos digitais do mundo alimentada pela Bolsa de Valores de Londres.

Quando pareada com a volatilidade declinante da Bitcoin, pode ser a razão pela qual a Bitcoin está tendo um mês tão bom“. Os analistas parecem concordar.

De acordo com dados da Skew, a Bitcoin passou apenas 93 dias acima de US$ 11.500 em toda a sua história. Quando a Bitcoin tem estado acima deste ponto, a volatilidade tem sido alta, mas com a volatilidade pairando em torno de 1,5%, este é um forte sinal de que a moeda encontrou uma casa acima de $10.000 e é provável que permaneça lá, diz a firma. Vamos esperar para ver.

Enquanto os HODLers têm se alegrado, Larry Dean Harmon está se arrependendo. Harmon, o criador de Helix e Coin Ninja, dois serviços de mistura de Bitcoin foi multado em $60 milhões pela Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN).

Enquanto o Departamento de Justiça dos EUA tem sugerido que os misturadores são ilegais – como eles criam uma forma de ocultar a atividade ilegal – a FinCEN diz que os misturadores estão bem desde que estejam registrados junto ao órgão regulador. Harmon supostamente não fez isso.

Harmon já está enfrentando acusações criminais de lavagem de dinheiro por supostamente ajudar a ocultar a fonte de mais de $300 milhões em Bitcoin para os clientes da AlphaBay Darknet de 2014 a 2017.

A Filecoin também teve um período difícil nos últimos tempos. Enquanto a rede foi lançada com muita fanfarra na semana passada, esta semana as alegações de uma revolta dos mineiros levaram a uma perda de 25% do valor da ficha da rede.

Filecoin emitiu uma refutação ontem, passando por cada alegação por sua vez, especialmente os rumores de que os mineiros têm desistido em massa. Seja qual for o lado da cerca em que você estiver, nós o manteremos protegido por esta.

Estoques sentindo o FUD

As bolsas de valores tiveram um início de semana igualmente misto. Uma grande venda nos mercados americanos ocorreu na segunda-feira, pois as negociações em torno da tão esperada lei de estímulo dos Estados Unidos não conseguiram avançar.

Embora Nancy Pelosi tenha estabelecido um prazo de terça-feira para que as negociações avancem, a confiança é baixa. Os vendedores de venda a descoberto têm acrescentado ao FUD à medida que a temporada de ganhos continua a desapontar os investidores.

A IBM foi a última empresa a apresentar lucros sem brilho, com a Procter & Gamble, Lockheed Martin, Netflix e Snap, tudo isso devendo ser relatado hoje.

Bitcoin Set voor 2017 – Stijlexplosie tegen het einde van het jaar op Avalanche of Institutional Interest, zegt deVere CEO

von am Oktober 24, 2020

De oprichter en CEO van een van de grootste onafhankelijke financiële adviseurs ter wereld zegt dat Bitcoin’s (BTC) 2020 close zeer vergelijkbaar zou kunnen zijn met de epische boom van 2017.

Nigel Green, die de 12 miljard dollar van deVere Group in de wacht sleept, onthult zijn gedurfde voorspelling in een nieuwe bedrijfsblogpost en zegt dat Bitcoin klaar is om „voor het einde van 2020 een golf te bereiken“.

„Er is een groeiend gevoel dat we een mini-boom gaan beleven zoals eind 2017. De prijzen moeten nog worden ingehaald door de interesse van de beleggers – maar dit is slechts een kwestie van tijd, aangezien de beleggers in de aanloop naar het einde van 2020 niet naar misschien wel jaarhoge prijzen zullen willen slaapwandelen.“

Green zegt dat hij gelooft dat een samenloop van factoren een grote rally BTC zal uitlokken voordat 2020 afloopt.

„Er is de laatste weken een lawine van belangstelling voor Bitcoin geweest van beleggers met een eigen naam. De activiteit van de beleggers neemt aanzienlijk toe, met verschillende metriek op de keten en de aanhoudende – en toenemende – wereldwijde politieke, economische en sociale turbulentie die suggereert dat er voor het einde van het jaar een prijsopstoot zal zijn.“

In december 2017 drukte Bitcoin zijn recordhoogte van iets meer dan 20.000 dollar. Het is een prijsniveau dat BTC sindsdien niet meer heeft gezien.

De bullish assessment is een van de weinige Green heeft gemaakt in de afgelopen maanden. In augustus voorspelde Green dat macro-economische factoren Bitcoin zouden ondersteunen in de rest van 2020.

„We kunnen verwachten dat ’s werelds grootste cryptocurrency voor de rest van 2020 verder zal worden gevoed door de Amerikaanse presidentsverkiezingen en de zwakte van de Amerikaanse dollar, die zal dienen als hoog-ohmige prijsstuwers.

Een Amerikaanse presidentsverkiezing brengt altijd onzekerheid met zich mee – maar 2020 wordt door velen als bijzonder belangrijk gezien, omdat niet alleen degene die wint de CEO van ’s werelds grootste economie zal zijn, maar ook de wereld zich economisch zal aanpassen na de wereldwijde fall-out van het coronavirus“.

Research: the development of the Blockadeade is hampered by the lack of uniform standards.

von am Oktober 14, 2020

The effectiveness of the development and regulation standards of the Blockchain depends on the degree to which regulators understand the technology, and the development of the industry depends on clear terminology. Such conclusions are contained in a joint study by the World Economic Forum (WEF) and the Global Blockchain Business Council (GBBC).

The authors of The Global Standards Mapping Initiative (GSMI) attempted to provide an overview of the current situation in the industry and identified gaps in technical standardisation.

In their view, most organisations that set standards for the blockbuster are interested in certain areas and ignore others. Their interest and scope of activities varied depending on the hype around the technology.

The experts consider the problems to be vague terminology and the lack of standards that would formally determine the suitability of the blockade for specific processes.

„It is important for all participants that the use of the blockade and the standardisation efforts have a clear goal,“ the document says.

Researchers call recognizing these problems the first Crypto Wealth step towards overcoming them. Regulators need to improve knowledge and seek collaboration, and industry representatives need to be involved in developing regulations.

PwC analysts have estimated that the mass implementation of the blockage will increase global GDP by $1.7 trillion by 2030. The greatest benefit will come from China, whose economy will receive an additional $440 billion.

Last year’s report by Moody’s rating agency said that it is more likely that the blockchain technology will be brought up to general standards by 2021.

Financial group SBI Holdings plans to hold first token sale in October

von am Oktober 10, 2020

The SBI wants to tokenize further assets in the future.

The planned “ Security Token Offering ” of the Japanese financial group SBI Holdings is slowly taking concrete shape

How Cointelegraph Japan on October 9, reported that SBI wants shares in its subsidiaries by way of token sales SBI e-Sports sell. With a security token offering, company shares are securitized in the form of a crypto token and thus resemble a digital security (security).

The related press release on Friday states that the STO will be held via the start-up Boostry’s blockchain platform ibet. SBI Securities, another subsidiary of SBI, will then carry out the token sale on October 30th.

The Bitcoin Benefit sees the Security Token Offerings, which are considered an innovative form of capital procurement for companies, as „future technology in finance“, which is why it wants to digitally securitise further assets in the future.

She wants to „tokenize“ real estate, works of art and intellectual property such as copyrights and trademarks

„Tokenization“, ie packaging in a digital crypto token, is possible for a wide range of assets, including stocks, bonds, funds, real estate and other valuables. The big advantage of tokenization is that the assets are easier to trade in digital form, and they can also be broken down into many small parts, which also enables small investors to invest proportionately in expensive assets. This is also interesting for the seller, as it opens up an even larger market for him.

Prior to the new plans SBI had 10% of the shares of Boostry secured . The startup is a cooperation between the Japanese investment group Nomura and its market research institute Nomura Research.
