Is a corporation building a blockchain city in Nevada?

Plans for a blockchain-based smart city are taking shape in the Nevada desert. Your client pursues statesmanlike ambitions.

The crypto investment firm Blockchains LLC is planning to build a crypto city in the US state of Nevada. Jeffrey Berns, CEO of the company, hopes for extensive political powers in the area

Berns wants to build a city in which the blockchain is not only used for numbers. Rather, his project envisages extensive use of the technology for city administration and the processing of personal data. The smart city is to be built in rural Storey County, an area not far from the casino metropolis of Reno. Blockchains LLC acquired $ 170 million worth of land there in 2018, according to an Associated Press report .

The company has offered to build 15,000 residential units there over the next 75 years. In addition, it announced the use of 3 million square meters of commercial space. The political dimension of the Berns plans, however, raises questions.

A blockchain state within a state?

The CEO’s ideas have spawned a bill in Nevada that provides for the creation of so-called “innovation zones” on (sufficiently large) land owned by a company. There “alternative forms of political administration” are to be tested. The areas would be subordinate to a tripartite commission, with two of the members initially coming from the ranks of the respective company. Specifically, this means that corporations such as Blockchains LLC could take over government tasks such as jurisdiction, police work and taxation in these zones.

Berns justified the attempt to abolish the state separation of powers with an economic argument. Because according to the CEO, the traditional state does not leave enough room for the innovative use of blockchains and comparable technologies. He told the Associated Press:

The ability to take risks, be agile, and figure things out how to do when designing new products is not the way the government works. Then why not just create a government that lets us do these things?

Unclear prospects for success

Whether or not Nevada’s lawmakers will respond to this proposal remains a big question mark. Because the draft law has not yet been officially submitted or debated. However, the state is keen to diversify its economy beyond tourism. The construction of new apartments is currently largely prohibited on the area acquired by Berns.

Steve Sisoka, the state’s Democratic governor, was benevolent of Blockchains LLC’s plans in his annual address . He highlighted the innovation potential of a blockchain city. His campaign staff had received about $ 60,000 in donations from the tech company in the past. Elon Musk’s Tesla also operates a large manufacturing facility in the state.

In the advance of Blockchains LLC, optimistic observers will have recognized the first step towards a tech utopia. Others may be more skeptical. Behind the demands of Berns one can also assume a path to that barely restricted corporate democracy that has become an integral part of gloomy future scenarios at least since the sci-fi classic Blade Runner .

CTO Ondulado David Schwartz Owes Sua Irmã Mais de $100K em Bitcoin

Recentemente, Ripple CTO David Schwartz revelou que deve à sua irmã 2.77904 BTC há anos.

E pediu para ser reembolsado em Bitcoin

Na segunda-feira, Schwartz escreveu no Twitter que ele tem sua irmã paga por um bilhete de avião para ele e pediu para ser reembolsado em Bitcoin. Curiosamente, embora Schwartz tenha „lembrado algumas vezes que agora é dinheiro real“ (2.77904 BTC vale aproximadamente $106.000 a preços atuais), ela „continua não cobrando“.

Há anos eu devo à minha irmã 2.77904 BTC (ela pagou um bilhete de avião para mim e queria que eu a pagasse em bitcoin). Eu a lembrei algumas vezes que agora é dinheiro real e ela continua não cobrando.

Aqui está o CTO Ondulado explicando porque sua irmã queria ser reembolsada em Bitcoin:

„Acho que ofereci seus dólares, XRP, ou bitcoin e ela escolheu bitcoin, mas não me lembro com certeza“. Acho que ela tinha uma carteira de bitcoin na época em seu telefone e me pediu para assumi-la ou para lidar com a divisão do BCH ou quando seu telefone quebrou e ela nunca mais a montou.

„Acho que lhe devia 2,5 btc ou similar e então lhe perguntei se ela queria que eu convertesse seu bch para btc e ela disse que sim, resultando no número esquisito. Mas eu posso estar me lembrando errado. Ofereci a ela uma taxa de câmbio generosa porque queria que os membros da família se interessassem pelo criptograma“.

Falou sobre sua carteira de criptogramas

No início de janeiro, Schwartz, falou sobre sua carteira de criptogramas:

Note que isto não é necessariamente o que eu escolhi segurar agora, eu apenas terminei aqui por causa de gotas de ar e outras circunstâncias ;)
Aproximadamente em ordem de tamanho de posição:
XRP, BTC, ETH, BAT, XLM, ADA, Polymath, BNT, KIN, Crypterium, StormX, Bitcoin Gold, e EOS.

E em outubro passado, ele revelou que, como „o risco é muito alto em todo o espaço criptográfico“, em 2012, ele e sua esposa concordaram em um plano de des-risco, que resultou na venda de algumas de suas participações no BTC, ETH e XRP por $750, $1, e $0,10 por moeda, respectivamente.

Bitcoin walvissen verplaatsen bijna $500M aan BTC.

De activiteit van de Bitcoin-walvis is sinds het begin van het jaar toegenomen.

De waarde van de crypto-activa is ook het hele jaar door gestegen.

Nadat de prijs van Bitcoin $40.000 had bereikt, waren er drie transacties waarbij meer dan 12.000 BTC’s door niet-geïdentificeerde handelaren op het platform werden verplaatst. Dit werd bekend gemaakt door Whale Alert, een crypto analytisch systeem.

Bitcoin-prijsvoorspelling: De analist suggereert hodling

Volgens de gegevens van de waarschuwing is er de laatste tijd een toename van de anonieme Bitcoin-walvissenactiviteit. Sinds het begin van het jaar is er een enorme stijging geweest, die grotendeels te wijten zou kunnen zijn aan het feit dat BTC zijn eigen records van alle tijden consequent overtreft.

Er werd bekend gemaakt dat onmiddellijk nadat de prijs van het activum $40.000 bereikte, een handelaar 4892 BTC overdroeg voor de overdracht van 4306 BTC en 3400 BTC. Dit alles gebeurde in één dag tijd en de transacties waren bijna $500 miljoen waard. De transacties werden uitgevoerd met behulp van onbekende portefeuilles.

Net voordat de koers van het activum crashte, had een andere handelaar in één klap een transactie uitgevoerd waarbij meer dan 9000 BTC betrokken was. Het percentage van deze anonieme transacties heeft de financiële autoriteiten wereldwijd ertoe aangezet om te proberen het aantal transacties te beperken.

Via FinCEN en andere agentschappen geven de autoriteiten in de Verenigde Staten de beurzen al opdracht om de identiteit van de eigenaars van crypto’s te gaan verifiëren, vooral van degenen die transacties met een waarde van meer dan 3000 dollar uitvoeren.

Bitcoin-prijsstijging gaat door

Sinds het begin van 2021 is de Bitcoin-prijs enorm blijven groeien. De stierenloop van de munt, die eind vorig jaar begon, lijkt niet snel te stoppen.

De rally van Bitcoin heeft ook de crypto-industrie in het algemeen beïnvloed. Crypto-activa zoals Ethereum, Stellar XLM, Ripple XRP, Litecoin, Bitcoin Cash en de rest van hen hebben ook een stijging van hun waarde gezien.

De crypto-industrie is gebonden aan de huidige massale institutionele adoptie van de asset.

Bitcoin values US$ 3,600 in 24 hours and beats US$ 33,000

Bitcoin decided to surprise everyone today and has valued 10% in the last 24 hours. At the beginning of the day the digital currency was traded for US$29,361 and a few hours later it was traded for US$32,965. A high of US$ 3600 in less than 1 day.

In some brokers the price exceeded US$33,000 and was even traded for US$33,500.The accumulated valuation of the last 30 days is 68%.

In mid-November 2020 the digital asset began to appreciate Crypto Cash review and has not stopped since.

The currency’s bullishness has caused market capitalization to exceed US$610 billion, bringing Bitcoin’s dominance to 72%.

With the exception of XRP, all the top 10 crypto-currencies per market capitalisation are following Bitcoin’s rise over the last 7 days.
One of the main reasons for the recent Bitcoin bullishness is the approval of the new stimulus package signed by Trump last week. This weakens the dollar and at the same time strengthens the Bitcoin.

Also, according to expert analysis there is little selling pressure at the world’s leading brokers, a shared chart by Simone Conti shows that „there are few Bitcoins to sell“ in exchanges.

The graph below shows that Bitcoin is about to enter a period where there is little selling pressure. The explanation is that as Bitcoin is in unknown territory investors are in the process of discovering prices, people now have to speculate where to place sell orders to ensure more profits.

That is, would you sell an asset for $33,000 knowing that it could be worth $50,000 by the end of the year?

Por que los mineros no están descartando Bitcoin a pesar del precio de $ 23k

El interés institucional en Bitcoin puede haber llevado a nuevos máximos, pero los mineros siempre han surgido como los principales defensores de los repuntes de precios de Bitcoin. Tal fue el caso en 2017 y en 2020, ha habido algunas señales de la participación de los mineros en el repunte de los precios.

El flujo de salida de los mineros de Bitcoin ha caído más del 68% desde noviembre de 2020 y más mineros eligen mantener su Bitcoin, incluso al nivel de precios actual

Según los datos de Glassnode, la oferta activa ha aumentado rápidamente teniendo en cuenta el hecho de que casi el 97% de las carteras de Bitcoin son rentables. La expectativa es que la presión de venta aumente, sin embargo, es posible que los mineros no hayan respondido a lo mismo hasta ahora.

¿Significa esto que los mineros están esperando una mayor rentabilidad? Los mineros se habían agrupado durante la mayor parte de septiembre y octubre de 2020, haciendo fila para obtener ganancias en noviembre de 2020. Esta fue otra razón para un aumento en la oferta a las bolsas y para el aumento en las reservas de divisas. Las reservas aumentaron en noviembre de 2020, sin embargo, mucho antes de alcanzar los niveles anteriores, la oferta más reciente se retiró de las bolsas.

Otra métrica que es fundamental para la actividad minera, pero menos popular en general, es el flujo de salida total de mineros [TMO].

Por qué los mineros no están tirando Bitcoin incluso por encima de $ 23000

Según los datos del gráfico anterior, el flujo de salida total de los mineros aún se encuentra en el nivel promedio, mucho más bajo que la carrera alcista anterior. En 2017, y a principios de 2018, la salida de los mineros fue mucho mayor, se redujo considerablemente en un lapso de 12 meses. Durante el repunte de precios de 2019, con un pequeño repunte en el precio, hubo otro repunte en la salida de mineros y el repunte de precios actual aún no ha registrado un aumento en el TMO.

Los mineros están superando el nivel de precios actual, anticipando un mayor descubrimiento de precios por encima de $ 24200, y una vez que la salida comienza a aumentar, es una señal para que los comerciantes minoristas observen de cerca los gráficos de precios. Así como el repunte actual de los precios no generó picos en la volatilidad de los precios de Bitcoin y el impulso de la red, aún no ha mostrado un aumento en las métricas de los mineros. El nivel de precios alrededor del cual TMO comienza a aumentar, más cerca del nivel de 2017, puede ser el nuevo ATH durante unos meses, a menos que una mayor actividad institucional o regulación provoque cambios abruptos en el ciclo de mercado de Bitcoin .

France: the Bitcoin.fr site celebrates its 10 years of existence

The Bitcoin.fr site was launched on December 23, 2010 and is celebrating its 10th anniversary.

The first online version featured a brief overview of BTC

The Bitcoin.fr site was born on December 23, 2010, a little less than a year after the launch of Bitcoin (BTC) by Satoshi Nakamato.

The founder explains that he stumbled across Italian Formula by chance through a developer friend who discovered the concept on linuxfr.org.

This same friend shared with him a news about the revelations of the telegrams of American diplomacy by Julian Assange who was making the headlines at the time.

The founder goes back to the beginnings of the site:

“It’s pure luck. I then managed other blogs (associative / professional). When I saw at the end of 2010 that the domain name bitcoin.fr was still available, I did not hesitate. I immediately sensed that there was something completely new and terribly powerful… I did not however push my foresight to buy bitcoins… at 0.15 € uro BTC… what a mistake! “

Today, the Bitcoin.fr community is also strong with 13,300 YouTube subscribers and over 16,000 Twitter followers .

Bitcoin price to hit new highs in 2021? JPMorgan forecasts $600 billion from investors

The wave of investors is expected to come in 2021

US bank JPMorgan Chase has issued a positive forecast for Bitcoin. For example, it expects insurance companies and pension funds around the world to invest $600 billion in Bitcoin over the next few years.

This was reported by Bloomberg, referring to the bank’s strategists. The statement was prompted by the recent investment by Massachusetts Mutual Life Insurance Co. The U.S. insurer had recently purchased bitcoin for USD 100 million.

600 billion USD for Bitcoin

Further, JPMorgan explained that if pension funds and insurers in the U.S., Europe, Japan and the U.K. invested just 1 percent of their assets in Bitcoin, $600 billion in new liquidity would come to the Bitcoin market. Currently, the Bitcoin market has a capitalization of $355 billion.

JPMorgan Chase strategists told Bloomberg:

The Bitcoin purchase by MassMutual [Massachusetts Mutual Life Insurance Co.] is another milestone in the adoption of Bitcoin by institutional investors. One can see the potential demand that could emerge if other insurers and pension funds follow MassMutual’s lead.

Billionaire and Bitcoin supporter Michael Novogratz had also welcomed the move by Massachusetts Mutual Life Insurance Co. He even called it “ perhaps the most important announcement in the Bitcoin space this year.“

The interest in Bitcoin

The reason for the increased interest is likely the current situation. Insurers and pension funds are finding it difficult to invest and diversify the money entrusted to them wisely. The companies depend on making profits for their existence.

Traditionally, U.S. insurers and pension funds like to invest their funds in U.S. bonds, i.e. U.S. government bonds. These generally still yield a useful 2 to 2.3 percent interest for long maturities. In the future, this will probably be sufficient at best to compensate for inflation. The necessary profits can probably not be achieved in this way.

The reason is the global intervention of central banks in the pandemic. It is to be expected that central banks all over the world will continue to make large sums of money available to the market, i.e. that the money supply will continue to increase substantially. Although it is disputed whether this must lead to consumer price inflation, there is in any case a threat of bubbles on the asset markets. Such bubbles are currently evident in almost all traditional asset classes and are making it difficult for companies to invest their money.

Gråskalor köper mer än 74 miljoner dollar för Ethereum Trust

Gråskalor köper mer än 74 miljoner dollar för Ethereum Trust

Grayscale tillkännagav köpet av mer än 74 miljoner dollar i ETH-tokens för sitt unika SEC-registrerade sätt att investera i Ethereum

Världen vill ha krypto och gråskala vet det. Efter att ha meddelat ett massivt köp på över $ 280 miljoner i Bitcoin förra veckan satsar nu Grayscale också på Ethereum.

Enligt en rapport som utfärdats av Grayscale till SEC avslöjade företaget att ha köpt 11455 ETH för totalt $ 74.135.609. Beslutet följer ett fantastiskt Bitcoin Code år för Ethereum, med ökningen av DeFi-projekt och lanseringen av Ethereum 2.0 som de främsta orsakerna bakom prisrallyt för dess ursprungliga token, ETH.

Genesis Trading, ett amerikanskt reglerat OTC-kryptohandelsdisk som grundades 2013, fungerade som mellanhand för att underlätta token-köpet.

Eftersom försäljningen rapporterade om den senast inlämnade Aktuella rapporten på blankett 8-K av Grayscale Ethereum Trust (ETH) („Trust“) utfärdade Trust 1 416 300 aktier till varierande priser … i privata placeringsaffärer undantagna från registreringskraven i Securities Act enligt regel 506 (c) därunder för sammanlagt 131 455. 43747295 Ethereum som representerar $ 74,135,609.

Grayscale Ethereum Trust är ett bra (eller enda) sätt för stora institutioner att investera i krypto

Grayscales inköp av Ethereum-tokens är ett tecken på institutionellt intresse och visar hur stor aptiten traditionella investerare har för denna framväxande marknad. Till skillnad från en vanlig börs är Grayscales produkter helt reglerade derivat i USA, vilket gör det helt säkert att hoppa in och använda dem.

Faktum är att Grayscale Ethereum Trust (ETHE) annonseras av företaget som „det enda SEC-registrerade sättet att investera i Ethereum.“

Investerare köper aktier i Grayscales truster med ett åtagande att hålla sina fonder (som aktier) i några månader. När låsningstiden slutar kan de sälja dessa aktier på sekundärmarknaden.

Grayscale deltar inte på denna marknad och köper inte tillbaka sina kunders aktier. Denna marknad är oberoende och Grayscale garanterar inte dess likviditet eller prisstabilitet. Därför tenderar deltagarna generellt att tjäna mycket lukrativa premier genom att handla på denna marknad.

Gråskala fortsätter att öka sin ETH-stash

Grayscale Ethereum Trust är företagets näst största förtroende efter Bitcoin – vilket i själva verket är det största BTC-förtroendet i världen någonsin. ETH står för 13,7% av Grayscales totala medel, medan Bitcoin står för mer än

Några dagar tidigare tillkännagav Grayscale köpet av ytterligare 105927 ETH för totalt 62,9 miljoner dollar. Detta matchar marknadens känsla. December var den mest hausseartade månaden som någonsin registrerats av Crypto Fear & Greed Index, så det är ingen överraskning att många investerare lägger sina pengar på Ethereum och andra kryptovalutor.

Bitcoin threat? Researchers give quantum computer sample

Bitcoin threat? Researchers give quantum computer sample

Due to their extreme computing power, quantum computers are considered a threat to encryption techniques. Chinese developers are now reporting a breakthrough in this field and are making Bitcoin Hodler sit up and take notice.

Only a few days after China announced the landing of its first space probe on the moon, another technological milestone from the Middle Kingdom is on the horizon. According to a report in the magazine „Nature“, a research team claimed to have made the first tangible Bitcoin Profit demonstration of a „quantum advantage“. This is the exploitation of the contra-intuitive mode of operation of quantum mechanics to perform calculations that would take eternities on classical computers.

JustTRADE is the first German provider to offer an all-in-one solution for trading in crypto currencies (Bitcoin, Ethereum, Ripple, …) shares, ETFs and certificates. The website and app are intuitively designed, offer many useful features and are suitable for both beginners and advanced traders.

Best of all, there are no transaction costs or network fees

The calculation was carried out using laser beams. Normal computers would not be able to perform such operations at anywhere near the same speed. Even the best existing supercomputers would take several billion years to do so, according to researchers from China. In contrast to Google’s first demonstration of a quantum advantage, which was carried out last year, the new Chinese version is thus considered practically unattainable for any classical computer. The results were published in the journal Science on 3 December.

However, Christian Weedbrook, CEO of the Canadian quantum computing start-up Xanadu in Toronto, Canada, points out that, unlike Google’s Sycamore, the photonic circuit of the Chinese team is not yet programmable. It cannot therefore be used at this stage to solve practical problems. But if the team succeeds in building a sufficiently efficient programmable chip, it would be possible to solve important computational problems:

It is only a matter of time before quantum computers will leave the classical computers in a cloud of dust.

Bitcoin zaczyna dziękczynienie tracąc 1000 dolarów w trzy godziny.

Po dużym byczym trendzie, który zapoczątkował debaty na temat możliwego nowego ATH, Bitcoin poprawił i stracił 1000 dolarów w ciągu zaledwie trzech godzin.

Więc kupiłeś trochę Bitcoin w tym tygodniu? A może dużą czerwoną świecę z okazji Święta Dziękczynienia?

Po pokazaniu najszybszego wzrostu w roku, Bitcoin w końcu poprawił, tracąc ponad 1000 dolarów w ciągu około 3 godzin.
O 0:00 UTC, Bitcoin handlował za 18869 dolarów na Coinbase. Cena stanowiła powiew świeżego powietrza dla handlowców i entuzjastów Bitcoinu, którzy oczekiwali nowego ATH, ale byli zaskoczeni korektą w dół po południu 25 listopada.

Bitcoin rozpoczął ostrą korektę, tracąc około 12% swojej wartości w ciągu 48 godzin tuż po trafieniu dokładnie 19500 dolarów w Coinbase.

Bitcoin nadal szanuje Bullish Trend.
Chociaż azjatyckie niedźwiedzie wydają się być pod kontrolą, to prawda jest taka, że wykresy pokazują wiele wskaźników, które zapewniają pewien spokój ducha. Bitcoin odbił się od linii EMA 20, wskazując, że trend byczy nadal będzie się utrzymywał.

RSI wydaje się wracać do normy. Wprawdzie nadal jest wysoki i wynosi 61,14, ale spadek z 83,88 zaledwie kilka godzin przed krachem może być powiewem świeżego powietrza dla handlowców, którzy byli zdenerwowani masową wyprzedażą.

Kolejne godziny będą miały decydujące znaczenie dla tego, czy Bitcoin w końcu opuści swój byczy kanał i powróci na ziemię, czy też spadek jest tylko krótką przerwą przed kontynuacją byczego trendu, który trwa od około połowy października 2020.

Jeśli chodzi o skalpery, sprawy wyglądają stosunkowo stabilnie po krwawej kąpieli. Bitcoin utrzymuje się na stałym poziomie ponad 17.700 dolarów, a rynki azjatyckie odnotowały duże wolumeny handlowe przy jednoczesnym zachowaniu parametrów trendu w bardziej wydłużonych ramach czasowych.

RSI wykazał drastyczną zmienność na zbyt niskim poziomie, niespotykaną od prawie dwóch miesięcy. Stochastyczne RSI wykazało również podobny spadek do bardzo niskich poziomów, co można uznać za sygnał kupna dla osób działających w nieco dłuższych przedziałach czasowych.

Jednakże, Bitcoin może nadal spadać w niedźwiedzim scenariuszu i przetestować pierwsze wsparcie na około 17300 dolarów. Od tego momentu, następne przystanki byłyby na 16063 dolarów i 15005 dolarów przed powrotem do byczej strefy kanału, który odbył się od marca 2020 roku.

Większość Altcoinów cierpi również na ból.
Rzeczy też nie wyglądają dobrze dla reszty altówek. Według danych Coinmarketcap co najmniej 95% ze 100 najlepszych żetonów – pomijając stabilne monety – odnotowało straty w ciągu ostatnich 24 godzin, jednak wiele żetonów wciąż jest w górę od zeszłego tygodnia.

W czasie pisania tego artykułu, Ether (ETH) stracił 9,5%, XRP rozbił się o 12%, Bitcoin Cash (BCH) spadł o 13,69% a Cardano (ADA) o 14,5%. Najgorętsze DeFi znajdują się również w czerwonej strefie: Chainlink (LINK) odnotował straty w wysokości 16,42%, Uniswap (UNI) -14,16%, AAVE -12,38% i Yearn.finance (YFI) -10,11%. Ouch!

Ale nawet jeśli korekta się utrzyma, to i tak jest spore pole do manewru, zanim zaczniemy mówić o nowym niedźwiedzim rynku.

Jakkolwiek, wszystko może się zdarzyć w krypto-wersie.
