Bitcoin, Ethereum, Ripple’s XRP, Litecoin e Chainlink de repente se recuperam

Bitcoin, ethereum, Ripple’s XRP, litecoin e chainlink-five das maiores moedas criptográficas por valor – recuperaram de uma venda esta semana.

O preço do bitcoin subiu para mais de $18.000 por bitcoin

O preço do bitcoin subiu para mais de $18.000 por bitcoin depois de cair para cerca de $16.000 na quinta-feira, quando o etéreo, o XRP da Ripple, o litecoin e o chainlink registraram oscilações ainda mais selvagens.

A ascensão foi liderada pelo XRP, que acrescentou mais de 10% nas últimas 24 horas, com bitcoin, ethereum, litecoin e chainlink subindo cerca de 5%.

O valor de mercado combinado do bitcoin e da moeda criptográfica oscilou em cerca de 100 bilhões de dólares esta semana, depois que o bitcoin escovou seu pico de quase 20.000 dólares em 2017.

A venda, que viu o bitcoin perder 10% de seu valor em questão de horas, foi tomada por muitos observadores do mercado de bitcoin e de moedas criptográficas como correção temporária.

„Os preços criptográficos podem mostrar flutuações bruscas, então o principal a saber é que esta etapa foi necessária para continuar o rally“, disse Alex Kuptsikevich, analista financeiro sênior da FxPro, via e-mail.

„Os indicadores técnicos estão há muito tempo no território do extremo sobre-comprado. O rally começou a sufocar no caminho para $20.000. Este é um nível de resistência psicológica e técnica muito sério para o mercado, e não havia dúvida de que este obstáculo testaria o otimismo dos investidores“.

O Bitcoin acrescentou quase 40% até novembro

O Bitcoin acrescentou quase 40% até novembro, impulsionado por sua crescente reputação como ouro digital, pelo interesse de grandes bancos em Wall Street e por uma jangada de investidores de alto perfil nomeando-o como uma cobertura potencial contra a inflação.

O rally do bitcoin, desencadeado pelo gigante de pagamentos de notícias PayPal PYPL -1,4% planejou adicionar serviços de compra e gastos de bitcoin, fez com que moedas criptográficas menores, incluindo etéreo, XRP da Ripple, litecoin e chainlink, subissem – com o XRP adicionando 150% somente este mês.

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.

Bitwala chooses Solarisbank for crypto-custody

Bitwala chooses Solarisbank for crypto-custody of Bitcoin and Co.

German crypto-bank Bitwala will in future store its customers‘ Bitcoin and Ether balances on Solarisbank’s Solaris Digital Assets platform.
German crypto-bank Bitwala has chosen Solaris Digital Assets for the safekeeping of crypto-currencies in Bitcoin Bank and ether of its customers, according to a statement by Solarisbank on 17 November.

Solaris Digital Assets is a wholly owned subsidiary of Solarisbank AG, which provides crypto services to the parent company and its affiliates.

Crypto custody for Bitwala customers

The new joint service between Bitwala and Solaris Digital Assets is expected to be available from January 2021. Regarding the future cooperation with Bitwala, Solarisbank writes

„In the new crypto-wallet setup, the so-called „private keys“ of Bitwala customers, which provide access to the digital assets on the block chain, will be generated and managed by Solaris Digital Assets in their secure infrastructure“.

In the future, Bitwala customers will no longer have to worry about creating their own wallet themselves. The Bitwala app will provide a crypto-wallet that stores tokens directly in the Solaris Digital Assets custody solution. However, experienced customers will also be able to use their own „self-custody“ wallet in the future.

Solarisbank emphasises the security of the new approach. Each transaction will be approved separately by the end customer and authenticated by Bitwala before being validated by Solaris Digital Assets. The risk of a so-called „Single Point of Failure“ could thus be reduced.

New legal position on cryptosafety as a basis

Solaris Digital Assets was not launched until late 2019 to take advantage of the new legislation. Since 01.01.2020, crypto-custody transactions require a licence from BaFin. With a decision on 14 November, the German Bundestag decided to make crypto assets an official financial instrument with corresponding regulation in Germany.

Since December 2018, Bitwala, together with Solarisbank, has been offering an online current account with a built-in trading function for crypto currencies. In 2019, the crypto-bank launched its own smartphone app for Bitcoin banking on iOS and Android.

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.“


„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%“.

ASIC keurt officieel de verkoop van CFD’s

ASIC keurt officieel de verkoop van CFD’s aan retailbeleggers goed.

Gereguleerde bedrijven worden gedwongen om de hefboomwerking die zij aanbieden te beperken tot een maximum van 30:1, tot zo weinig als

De Australische Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) heeft officieel beperkingen aangekondigd op de verkoop bei Bitcoin Future van contracts for difference (CFD’s) aan particuliere klanten en zegt nog steeds bezorgd te zijn over de bescherming van de belegger.

De regels schrijven ook een negatieve bescherming van de rekening voor, zodat klanten niet meer dan hun handelsdeelneming kunnen verliezen, waardoor een herhaling van het debacle na de ineenstorting van de Zwitserse frank in 2015 wordt voorkomen. Tot slot verbieden de regels bonussen en andere al dan niet financiële prikkels die in de afgelopen jaren mogelijkerwijs tot overhandel hebben geleid.

Voor makelaars is de grootste klap de beslissing van ASIC geweest om de hefboomwerking die ze aan hun klanten kunnen bieden te beperken tot het afsluiten van weddenschappen. Gereguleerde bedrijven zijn gedwongen om de hefboomwerking die zij aanbieden te beperken tot een maximum van 30:1.

De beslissing omvat met name de volgende hefboomlimieten, die variëren afhankelijk van de volatiliteit van elke activaklasse:

  • 30:1 voor grote valutaparen;
  • 20:1 voor niet-grote valutaparen, goud en grote indexen;
  • 10:1 voor andere grondstoffen dan goud en niet-grote aandelenindexen;
  • 5:1 voor individuele aandelen en andere referentiewaarden; of
  • 2:1 voor cryptocurrencies.

Vorig jaar heeft de ASIC zijn verslag uitgebracht over de nieuwe productinterventiemaatregelen die hard aankomen op binaire opties en CFD’s.

De macht, die in april vorig jaar in de wetgeving werd opgenomen, stelt de ASIC in staat om in te grijpen wanneer zij van mening is dat een financieel of kredietproduct aanzienlijke schade voor de consument zal veroorzaken.
Voorgestelde artikelen

In het bijzonder heeft de Australische toezichthouder voorgesteld om binaire opties volledig te verbieden in het land en om hefboomwerkingsbeperkingen in te voeren voor CFD-producten.

Europa Vormt de regulering van de onlinehandel wereldwijd

De nieuwe regels harmoniseren de ASIC-vereisten effectief met de productgoedkeuringsvereisten die in Europa zijn ingevoerd door de ESMA, die ook het aanbieden van binaire opties en een beperkte hefboomwerking op CFD’s verbood.

Maar, in tegenstelling tot ESMA, zei de ASIC dat het geen emittenten-specifieke risicowaarschuwingen of andere op openbaarmaking gebaseerde voorwaarden zal vereisen zoals oorspronkelijk voorgesteld. In Europa leggen de CFD-beperkingen een gestandaardiseerde risicowaarschuwing op, inclusief het percentage van de verliezen op de rekeningen van een CFD-aanbieder voor retailbeleggers.

De Australische financiële waakhond heeft zijn grootste slag geslagen tegen de verkoop van risicovolle beleggingen aan retailbeleggers, maar de spelers in de sector beweren dat ze al in overeenstemming met de meeste van deze beperkingen opereren.

De corporate regulator heeft zich voorbereid om zijn nieuwe regelgevende spieren te buigen na een recent overzicht dat alleen al in 2018 werd gevonden, 80 procent van de binaire handelaren en 72 procent van de cliënten die CFD’s verhandelden, verloren geld. Retail handelaren verloren bijna $ 490 miljoen en $ 1,5 miljard per jaar in de handel in binaire opties en CFD’s, respectievelijk, volgens ASIC-gegevens.

Nog steeds, de regelgevende updates, die hefboomwerking grenzen, marge close-out regels, en negatieve saldo bescherming omvat, worden verwacht om fortuinen van de lokale makelaars van hun Australische klanten te beïnvloeden.

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.
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.

Fondsforvalter, der forudsagde Bitcoin-eksplosion tilbage i 2013, siger, at DeFi Market kunne ramme $ 400 milliarder, Outpace BTC

Dan Morehead, administrerende direktør for blockchain-investeringsselskabet Pantera Capital, siger, at selvom han er ekstremt bullish på Bitcoin, vil det decentrale finansieringsrum (DeFi) sandsynligvis være meget mere lukrativt i de kommende år.

I et nyt interview med CT siger Pantera Capital administrerende direktør , at DeFi stadig er relativt undervurderet i forhold til BTC

” Bitcoin har en markedsværdi på $ 250 milliarder, og det er godt. Det er allerede nået. Mens de andre brugssager som DeFi stadig er i deres begyndende tilstand. DeFi har nu en markedsværdi på omkring $ 4 mia. Hvis du ser på Bitcoin på 215 mia. $ Eller DeFi til 4 mia. $, Ser det ud til, at DeFi er billigere, ikke? “

Morehead lancerede Panteras Bitcoin Code fond tilbage i 2013, da BTC kun var $ 104. Gennem Panteras BTC-investeringer har det gjort bemærkelsesværdigt godt, mener kryptotitanen, at DeFi nu er i stand til at overgå den største kryptokurrency og stige 10.000% i de kommende år.

”Vores første [Bitcoin] fond er steget med 17.000%. Det er fantastisk. Jeg tror ikke, du kan gå op 100 gange derfra. På det tidspunkt når du op til 20 billioner [bitcoin market cap]. Det bliver meget, meget stort i forhold til verden eller penge eller alle de forskellige skalaer, du kan lægge på det. Men DeFi, det kan gå til $ 400 mia. Der er ingen grund til, at det ikke kunne ske. Du har meget mere opad, tror jeg, i disse små AltFi-DeFi-protokoller. ”

Dan Morehead svarede også på en nylig udtalelse fra Dan Held, forretningschef i Kraken, om at Bitcoin kunne gå op til $ 1 million og bemærkede, at selvom et sådant spring i BTC-værdi er mulig, er det mere sandsynligt, at det sker i DeFi

”Jeg vil sige, at vi er enormt bullish på Bitcoin. Vi ejer et ton Bitcoin, og det kan måske gå til en million, men det er 100 gange herfra og for mig er det virkelig kanten af ​​muligheden, fordi du kommer ind i et tal, der er $ 20 billioner, og alle penge på jorden er kun $ 100 billioner, så du kommer virkelig til en kæmpe ting på det tidspunkt. ”
