Analyste : Les Hodler seront les plus gros gagnants de Bitcoin cette année

Le „HODLING“, un crypto-lingo qui signifie „s’accrocher à la vie“, a été cité comme la méthode la plus bénéfique pour encaisser de grosses sommes sur Bitcoin.

Le mouvement bancal du marché des cryptocurrences est connu pour déclencher différentes tendances à un moment donné.

La réaction du marché à ce mouvement instable se reflète alors dans les graphiques techniques, qui finissent par donner des signaux sur la direction que prend la cryptocouronne. À aucun moment, les indicateurs techniques ne permettent de déterminer correctement la prochaine étape des actifs numériques, d’où la nécessité d’une analyse fondamentale. L’une des formes d’accumulation de bénéfices les plus référencées a toujours été le HODLING, et comme le suggère le récent article d’un Crypto-analyste sur Twitter, les détenteurs ont les meilleures chances de prendre la plus grosse part du gâteau.

Le directeur technique de la plateforme d’analyse de la chaîne Glassnode a pris sur lui de rassurer la communauté sur l’importance des indicateurs fondamentaux, dont beaucoup sont à un niveau record.

Il n’est pas surprenant que les baleines de la CTB soient à un niveau record. Ces grands acteurs ont été crédités à la fois de la flambée des prix et d’une possible baisse future des prix, bien que les investisseurs particuliers aient joué un rôle plus important dans la récente vente de Bitcoin qui a fait monter les prix à près de 30 000 dollars.

La hausse du nombre de baleines détenant au moins un BTC n’est pas non plus aussi surprenante si l’on considère les sentiments du marché à l’heure actuelle. La hausse des prix de novembre de l’année dernière a été un point d’entrée pour les acheteurs qui ont anticipé la hausse, et on s’attend à ce que les adresses des baleines soient au top. Les fondamentaux de Bitcoin s’améliorent également et le pic du taux de hachage, qui a coïncidé avec le début du rallye haussier, en est un parfait indicateur.

Historiquement, ce sont les Hodler qui ont le plus profité de Bitcoin, mais ces bénéfices ne sont pas immédiats.

Il faut donc passer par autant de marchés baissiers que nécessaire jusqu’à ce que les prix commencent à chuter. Au début de Bitcoin, lorsque le marché était très incertain, la détention n’était peut-être pas la stratégie d’investissement la plus attrayante, mais si l’on avance rapidement à 10 ans, détenir seulement 1 000 dollars de Bitcoin aurait fait de n’importe qui un multimillionnaire.

De même, détenir vos Bitcoin pendant la prochaine décennie pourrait être la stratégie la plus rentable, car le marché n’en est encore qu’à ses débuts. En 2021, on prévoit que les bitcoins augmenteront d’au moins 185%, ce qui portera le prix à au moins 100 000 dollars à la fin de l’année. Une fois de plus, seuls les hodleurs à long terme sont bien placés pour rapporter la plus grosse tarte à la maison.

Bitcoin steigt jetzt näher an 42.000 US-Dollar und schlägt seine eigenen früheren Rekorde

Trotz der Gewinne und des anhaltenden Preisanstiegs bei Bitcoin rechnen viele Kritiker mit einem möglichen Platzen dieser „Blase“.

Bitcoin (BTC) hat die Anleger weiterhin begeistert, da es die Preismarke von 41.000 USD überschritten hat, ein neues Allzeithoch und seine eigenen früheren Rekorde schlagen. gemäß Für CoinMarketCap ist ein Bitcoin zum Zeitpunkt des Schreibens bis zu 41.934 USD wert und entspricht einem Gewinn von über 8,7% in den letzten 24 Stunden.

Bitcoin erfreut weiterhin sowohl seine Inhaber als auch neue Investoren, da die offensichtlichen Preisgewinne gleichbedeutend mit Gewinn sind, insbesondere für diejenigen, die zu einem früheren Zeitpunkt eine Position mit der Münze eingenommen haben. Die Rallye im Jahr 2020 wurde hauptsächlich Top-Instituten auf der ganzen Welt zugeschrieben, die die Münze aufkauften, während die derzeit anhaltende Rallye auf einen Anstieg des Buy-ups von Privatanlegern zurückzuführen ist, die befürchten, diesen aktuellen Bullen-Run zu verpassen.

Trotz der Gewinne und des kontinuierlichen Anstiegs der Bitcoin-Preise rechnen viele Kritiker mit einem möglichen Ausbruch des Wachstums, das sie als Blase bezeichnen. Die Erwartung einer Preiskorrektur hat jedoch weder die neuen Investoren abgeschreckt noch die alten dazu bewegt, ihre aufgelaufenen Gewinne zu verkaufen, ein Schritt, der die Prophezeiungen dieser Kritiker schnell verfolgen kann.

Einfluss von Privatanlegern auf den Bitcoin-Preis auf neue Rekorde drängen

Zweifellos befindet sich der Großteil des derzeit im Umlauf befindlichen BTC in der Kasse von weniger als 5% der Anleger, die eine Position in Bitcoin Revolution eingenommen haben. Während ein Großteil der 5% institutionelle Anwender und die sehr wohlhabenden Einzelinvestoren umfasst, zeigen Daten von auf den Einzelhandel ausgerichteten Kryptowährungsbörsen, dass Privatanleger dazu beigetragen haben, den Bitcoin-Preis deutlich über die Benchmark von 41.000 USD hinaus zu drücken

Das Revolut Die App berichtete, dass sie in den letzten 30 Tagen etwa 300.000 neue Kryptowährungskunden registriert hat, als Bitcoin neue und höhere Preisniveaus testete. eToro stellte fest, dass es am 4. Januar 61% mehr eindeutige Bitcoin-Inhaber gab als ein Jahr zuvor und 49% mehr einzigartige Inhaber von Äther, einer anderen virtuellen Währung gemäß zu einem Bericht von CNBC.

Angesichts des überfüllten Marktes glauben Analysten, dass der allgemeine Trend bei Bitcoin bullisch ist, auch wenn derzeit eine Preiskorrektur stattfindet

„Es wird eine Volatilität geben, die nach den erzielten Gewinnen natürlich ist, aber der langfristige Trend ist klar“, so Simon Peters, Marktanalyst bei eToro, sagte CNBC. „Crypto rückt in den Mainstream vor und immer mehr Investoren erhöhen ihr Engagement.“

Bis diese Volatilität den Bitcoin-Preis unter die derzeitige Unterstützung von 41.000 US-Dollar drücken wird, geht die Kryptosphäre davon aus, wie hoch dieser Bullen-Run sein wird.

Firma de servicios financieros que cotiza en Nasdaq aumenta su deuda para invertir hasta $ 100 millones en Bitcoin

La empresa multinacional de servicios financieros con sede en Hong Kong Greenpro Capital Corp. (NASDAQ: GRNQ) ha anunciado que planea invertir en Bitcoin.

Según el comunicado de prensa de Greenpro Capital , „la adopción masiva en curso de $ BTC por bancos, fondos de cobertura, compañías de seguros e instituciones“ ha fortalecido su creencia de que la criptomoneda insignia del mundo es un depósito de valor „confiable“.

La empresa espera que Bitcoin y otros criptoactivos importantes (como Ether) proporcionen mejores rendimientos que tener efectivo

Es por eso que Greenpro Capital quiere invertir en Crypto Engine. Planea hacerlo de dos maneras: (i) usando su propio efectivo para comprar BTC; y (ii) recaudando hasta $ 100 millones en deuda para poder invertir aún más dinero en Bitcoin.

El Dr. CK Lee, CEO de Greenpro Capital, dijo lo siguiente:

“Creemos plenamente en $ BTC como reserva de valor. He dado instrucciones a nuestros banqueros de inversión para que aumenten la deuda en el primer trimestre de 2021 de hasta US $ 100 millones para invertir en $ BTC. La Compañía también invertirá su propio efectivo en $ BTC ”.

Greenpro Capital utilizará el intercambio de cifrado CryptoSX , que es una de sus subsidiarias, para comprar Bitcoin.

El 11 de diciembre, otra empresa que cotiza en Nasdaq, MicroStrategy, emitió un comunicado de prensa para anunciar „el cierre de su oferta previamente anunciada de pagarés senior convertibles al 0.750% con vencimiento en 2025“, y continuó diciendo que „el monto total de capital de los pagarés vendido en la oferta fue de $ 650 millones „.

Simplex Partners with Visa to Issue Debit Cards

The fiat-to-crypto ramp Simplex has partnered with Visa and now offers its partners the ability to issue crypto debit cards.

Over 200 Simplex partner companies can now offer their customers crypto debit cards.

This enables greater acceptance of cryptocurrencies for transactions

That’s possible because Simplex and Visa announced a partnership on Monday. Simplex is a fiat-to-crypto ramp and is now a major member of Visa in Europe.

A Simplex spokesman told Cointelegraph that the partnership is primarily designed to boost the company’s business-to-business activities. „The main membership allows us to pass this on to our partner network and basically give every Simplex partner the opportunity to offer a crypto or fiat Visa card.“

For Simplex founder and CEO Nimrod Lehavi, the Visa partnership is an important step towards the company’s goal of enabling greater access to digital currencies.

Simplex has been offering a tether-to-euro payment on its platform since October

Crypto debit cards remain an important component in providing „fiat-like convenience“ when using cryptocurrencies online or in physical stores. The increasing use of digital currencies for microtransactions is still one of the benchmarks for measuring crypto adoption.

In 2020, a number of crypto companies launched debit cards that allow users to use crypto in payments. The Binance Card, for example, was delivered to European customers in December. The crypto lender BlockFi also announced its own card program.

Simplex is now one of the main crypto companies alongside Coinbase. The exchange already did so in February , although it has not yet taken advantage of the opportunity directly as its cards are still being issued by third-party providers.

To tax Bitcoin and cryptos, the OECD wants a common framework – And that doesn’t bode well

The Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) will be proposing a tax framework for cryptoassets to its 37 member countries from 2021.

A standard to better tax your cryptos

The OECD’s mission is „to promote policies that will improve economic and social well-being around the world „. And for this, the organization has its Center for Tax Policy and Administration . In particular, it is responsible for promoting the exchange of information between the tax authorities of member countries. But it also issues conventions aimed at harmonizing their taxes (fiscal federalism) in order to fight against tax evasion.

The best known is the OECD model convention on the exchange of information in tax matters, or CRS (for Common Reporting Standard ). These recommendations in particular have been limiting bank secrecy since 2005.

According to the director of the Center for Tax Policy and Administration, Pascal Saint-Amans , a similar framework will be introduced for cryptos in 2021:

Basically, the idea is to have a standard that would be roughly equivalent to CRS, if not CRS. It will most likely be delivered sometime in 2021.

Pascal Saint-Amans

This standard will not contradict the directives of entities such as the European Commission, according to Saint-Amans.

Taxes, everyone agrees

For its part, the European Union is seeking to amend its Directive on administrative cooperation in tax matters ( DAC ). His proposal was published on November 23.

According to Saint-Amans, this amendment will be in accordance with the recommendations of the OECD:

The OECD proposal will be “complementary” to ongoing work within the EU. But the OECD is likely to set its standard before the EU. This will be an opportunity for the EU to align with our standard. […] The right comparison is not the Digital Services Directive, but rather all the many directives where the EU has implemented OECD standards. The seventh version of the DAC Act is an example of these, very much in line with what we are doing.

Ethereum’s share price hits its 2-year high of $500: will the $1,400 follow this year?

Mobile phone with Ethereum course history and Ether Coin

The Ethereum share price has reached the $500 mark for the first time since June 2018, currently exceeding the annual return of Bitcoin (BTC).

 

The Ethereum (ETH) price returned to $500 today, 20 November, for the first time in more than two years. This marks an important psychological price level for ETH. The Ethereum price thus Bitcoin Revolution takes advantage of the current momentum in the Altcoin market, which is increasingly recovering from recent weeks.

 

But where does this lead the price development of the second largest crypto currency in the world? Many believe that the scenario from 2017 will repeat itself in a similar way and that we could see an Ethereum price near the all-time high of $1,400 this year.

 

Ethereum price even outperforms Bitcoin

The Ethereum course has overcome the psychologically significant barrier of $500 in Friday trading. The price per ETH has increased 7.2% in the last 24 hours at the time of writing. This means that the leading Altcoin not only outperforms Bitcoin’s performance today, but in 2020 as a whole, with returns since the beginning of the year of 284% for ETH and 155% for BTC.

 

However, the strong increase in the Ethereum share price is not entirely surprising. In a chart analysis for ETH on 10 November, we already pointed out that the number 2 in the crypto market could be on the way to $500. The reason for this assumption was a pennant formation that had formed on the 4H chart.

As we can see on the chart from Bitcoin-Bude’s Telegram channel, the Ethereum price has reached the derived minimum target price of $500 today. It will be interesting to see whether the ETH bulls will succeed in establishing this important psychological hurdle as a new support. For this it would be important that today’s daily price closes above 500$.

 

Is this the beginning of the price rally to $1,400?

The Ethereum price currently shows many parallels to its course in 2017. Not only in terms of the price trend, but also in terms of some important on-chain metrics. Many investors are aware of this and therefore believe that ETH could follow a similar price trend as it did then.

 

Just like today, the Ethereum share price circulated around the $450 mark for a while almost exactly 2 years ago. It took only 34 days before ETH reached its all-time high of around $1,400.  Said on-chain metrics and historical data indicated that this could now happen again.

 

The current daily active addresses, the transaction and transfer volume as well as the trading volume in the Ethereum share price show a strong similarity to the on-chain developments at ETH in December 2017. However, the parallels are too pronounced for many people here to assume that this is still a coincidence.

Analyst explains: Therefore the Bitcoin purchase is risky with 16.000 dollar

According to Marc Principato of Green Bridge Investing, the Bitcoin bulls should be ready for a bend as soon as the crypto currency closes over $16,000.

The Managing Director has projected the level as an opportunity for traders to make some profits. He adds that they would most likely reintroduce this money into the Bitcoin market at lower levels – and warns optimists that they should not open long positions near $16,000 as a result.

„Our plan requires the unfolding of 3 things before we can take any risk,“ Principato said in a note released on Monday. „First, we need to reach a predetermined level (14,250 to 13,600). Second, we need price actions to achieve a clear structure (chart pattern, candle pattern, etc.). And third, we need confirmation.“

And:

„Once we can measure the risk and determine a favorable probability, we will share our idea and start a new swing trade“.

On the subject of fundamental data

The statement followed the parabolic Bitcoin movement from $10,500 in September 2020 to [almost] $16,500 in November 2020. Many analysts agree that the prospects of ultra-low interest rates and endless bond purchases have brought lower yields to the U.S. Treasury. This in turn has led investors to put money into investments such as Bitcoin.
Bitcoin keeps support above the parabola.

Some also believe that a rising budget deficit, led by the U.S. government’s $2.3 trillion coronavirus stimulus package, has allowed some of the liquidity to flow into the Bitcoin ecosystem. Other bullish catalysts were institutional investments and PayPal’s decision to introduce Bitcoin buying and selling services on its payment platform.

Andrew Gonci, Managing Director of Green Bridge Investing, comments, however, that Bitcoin traders had already taken over all upside catalysts when they sent the price towards $16,500. Now the crypto currency is trading at its actual spot price – an overbought asset that requires some downward correction.

„Most people think you’re either all in or all out, but if you bought 100 million Bitcoin at 10,000 and it’s now 160 million at 16,000, you’ll probably take at least 16-32 million off the table,“ Gonci adds. „That’s what hedge fund managers think; they don’t go Hopium!“

Capital comes in record speed

Meanwhile, on-chain analyst Willy Woo believes that capital is entering the Bitcoin market at record speed rather than leaving it. He cites the realized price – a metric that measures the estimated average cost base that Bitcoin investors have paid.

Woo explains:

„Organic price action occurs when the BTC price is closely linked to the investors‘ capital coming in and going out. If it is an inorganic BTC price, it is dominated by short-term derivative traders“.

Trump of Biden? Bitcoin wins anyway by default Grayscale CEO

Voting is already possible, but officially the American elections will begin on 3 November. Who is going to win, Donald Trump or Joe Biden? Regardless of the outcome, it is bitcoin that will win. At least, that is what Barry Silbert, CEO of cryptocurrency investment fund Grayscale, says.

 

A lot of money is going to be printed

Whoever wins, Barry Silbert thinks bitcoin looks better: „Trump wins = brrr. Biden wins = brr.

With brrr, Silbert is not referring to the weather forecasts in America, but to the additional printing of dollars. The Federal Reserve can print unlimited dollars, while the maximum number of bitcoins is set at 21 million.

Grayscale sees interest in bitcoin rise

Grayscale is a cryptocurrency investment fund, with as much as USD 7.6 billion under management. Last week the fund published a new study, in which the team behind Grayscale emphasizes the potential of bitcoin.

According to Grayscale, 36% of the investors were interested in bitcoin in 2019. This year that percentage has risen to 55%. The increase of almost 20% can also be seen in practice. More and more institutional parties are showing an open interest in bitcoin. Think, for example, of MicroStrategy and PayPal.

Bitcoin becomes mainstream

The strong fundamentals behind bitcoin and rapidly growing demand could offset the risk during the US elections in the fourth quarter.

Grayscale’s research shows that investors were not only interested in bitcoin, but that these investors had actually bought bitcoin. This concerns 83% of the people who had the intention to buy bitcoin:

„This indicates that digital currency is becoming an increasingly attractive part of modern investment portfolios“.

Holding value

According to Grayscale, the main reason for holding on to bitcoin remains the hope that the price will rise sharply. But in the eyes of institutional investors bitcoin is also a way to retain value.

These investors are planning to slowly expand their portfolio with bitcoin:

„In 2019, 59% of respondents said they would start buying a small amount of bitcoin. They want to expand their investment after that. By 2020, this percentage will have risen to 65%“.

Lagligheten av Bitcoin i USA

Det rättsliga systemet i USA är fragmenterat och det finns därför inget tydligt svar i denna fråga. Det beror på var och vem du är för att känna till lagligheten av Bitcoin.

I federal lag definieras Bitcoin som en vara. Den juridiska statusen för operationer som utförs med denna kryptovaluta kan variera i landets olika stater.

Vissa människor är bekanta med denna virtuella valuta, men förtroende är fortfarande ett problem. Det råder för mycket osäkerhet om den rättsliga statusen för detta populära mynt runt om i världen. Det finns regeringar där denna kryptovalutalaglighet är flytande och oregelbunden, även om mer än ett decennium har gått sedan dess uppfinning.

Eftersom USA består av en mosaik av stater är det inget undantag; var och en har sina lagar. Det finns stater där Bitcoins kommersialisering är laglig, men det finns andra där verksamheten ifrågasätts.

Bitcoin och dess juridiska status i Amerikas förenta stater enligt federal lag

På federal nivå är de två organisationer som bryr sig om Bitcoin Pro Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CTFC), som ansvarar för att reglera landets derivatmarknader och USA: s Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). Den senare är en byrå som arbetar oberoende av den federala regeringen. Dess roll är att reglera värdepappersmarknaderna och följa federala värdepapperslagar.

United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) har uppgett att denna kryptovaluta inte är en säkerhet. Men Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CTFC) 2015 förklarade att Bitcoin är en guldliknande vara och måste regleras.

Eftersom det rättsliga systemet är fragmenterat är de mest kommersialiserade kryptovalutorna i världen ojämna. Eftersom det finns så många lagar, och alla varierar från stat till stat, är det inte lätt att veta den amerikanska handelns faktiska status.

Till exempel förbjöd Hawaii 2014 alla typer av transaktioner med den här digitala valutan, men 2018 gick det igen. Han bestämde sig för att människor som vill handla kryptovalutor måste ha en Money Transmitter License.

New York, Florida, Delaware och Kansas antog också dessa regler. Men resten av staterna har inte velat legalisera kryptovalutaföretag.

Är det lagligt att köpa och sälja Bitcoin i USA?

Det finns många stater där köp av denna kryptovaluta är lagligt. År 2013 förklarade Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FINCEN) som tillhör Treasury Department att det är lagligt att investera och använda Bitcoin som betalningsmetod.

Allt beror på om säljaren av varorna och tjänsterna vill acceptera denna kryptovaluta. Det finns en stat som Kalifornien där kryptovaluta inte definieras och därför är det inte reglerat.

Roubo de chaves privadas da Carteira Quente da KuCoin, estimado em 150 milhões de dólares em danos

Principais tomadas de decisão

Os dados dos usuários particulares não são afetados, de acordo com o CEO da KuCoin, Johhny Lyu.
A equipe da KuCoin está trabalhando com outras empresas de ponta para colocar os fundos dos hackers na lista negra.
COMPARTILHE ESTE ARTIGO
A KuCoin Exchange informou uma violação de segurança às 04:50 da manhã (UTC+8) deste sábado. O horário do anúncio coincidiu com a conclusão das operações de segurança necessárias para limitar os danos.

A essa hora, porém, já era tarde demais, pois a troca já havia perdido um patrimônio confirmado de 150 milhões de dólares.

A equipe de segurança da KuCoin notou a violação e as transações anormais duas horas antes, às 02h51min, pensando que seria fácil de resolver. Entretanto, após desligarem os servidores, eles notaram que os ativos continuavam a fluir para fora, indicando que a chave privada de sua carteira quente havia sido comprometida.

O histórico de transações da carteira do atacante mostra que eles executaram com sucesso mais de 500 transações ETH e ERC-20 antes que a segurança da KuCoin drenasse os ativos restantes. Os atacantes tinham aproximadamente sete horas antes que a equipe de segurança reagisse.

Os atacantes ainda estão tentando executar transações no momento da imprensa, mas o contrato inteligente USDT colocou a carteira associada na lista negra. O CEO da KuCoin acrescentou isso:

„Estamos em contato com muitas grandes trocas de criptografia, tais como Huobi, Binance, OKEx, BitMax e Bybit, bem como projetos de cadeias de bloqueio, agências de segurança e aplicação da lei para trabalhar nisso. Algumas medidas efetivas foram tomadas, e em breve atualizaremos com mais detalhes“.

A última atualização de segurança do KuCoin contém informações detalhadas sobre a cronologia dos eventos, os ativos afetados e as respostas às perguntas da comunidade. Esta é a primeira vez que a KuCoin foi invadida, e eles disseram que devolverão todos os ativos aos usuários através de seu fundo de seguros.

Não está claro se os fundos foram segurados por um terceiro ou se este é um fundo interno desenvolvido para este tipo de eventos.
