Bitcoin-mijnbouw: Marathon om de grootste mijnwerker van de VS te worden met 2,56 Eh/s

Marathon heeft nog een order geplaatst om haar Bitcoin-mijnmachines uit te breiden met extra 10.000 Antimisbruikers.
Het bedrijf schat dat het hashgehalte zal oplopen tot 2,56 Eh/s.
De Bitcoin-mijnbouwindustrie wordt geleidelijk aan groter en er zal de komende jaren veel concurrentie zijn als mijnbouwbedrijven doorgaan met de aankoop van mijnwerkers van de volgende generatie. Onlangs informeerde Marathon Patent Group, Inc. in een persverklaring dat ze een nieuw contract hebben geopend met de Chinese Bitcoin ASIC-producent, Bitmain, om een extra 10.000 Antminer S19 Pro te ontvangen.

Marathon richt zich op 2,56 Eh/s
Volgens de informatie zal Bitmain naar verwachting in maart volgend jaar de 10.000 Antiminers S19 Pro-verzending voltooien. De overeenkomst houdt in dat het mijnbouwbedrijf Bitmain de leveringen vanaf januari volgend jaar in batches zal ontvangen. De 10.000 Antiminers zullen sneller worden ingezet dan de vorige bestelling van het bedrijf in augustus. Precies, de nieuwe order zal volledig en volledig worden ingezet binnen Q1.

„Als gevolg hiervan zal onze omzet van Bitcoin Mining sneller stijgen dan we hadden verwacht“, aldus het bedrijf.

Eerder in augustus bestelde Marathon 10.500 Antiminers S19 Pro bij Bitmain. De levering staat gepland om ook in januari 2021 te beginnen. Echter, het zal volledig en volledig worden ingezet in juni, dat is drie maanden na de laatste 10.000 Antiminers. In principe wordt van al deze mijnwerkers verwacht dat ze de Bitcoin-mijnkracht van het bedrijf verhogen tot 2,56 Eh/s wanneer ze volledig zijn ingezet.

Met die hashing power zou Marathon wel eens het grootste Bitcoin-mijnbouwbedrijf in de Verenigde Staten en in Noord-Amerika in het algemeen kunnen worden.

Bitcoin-mijnbouw in 2021
Het jaar 2021 zou wel eens zeer concurrerend kunnen zijn voor mijnbouwbedrijven, omdat de meeste van hen de volgende generatie machines aan hun mijnwerkersvloot Crypto Bull hebben toegevoegd. Een voorbeeld van deze bedrijven is Riot blockchain. Cryptopolitan meldde onlangs dat ze van plan zijn om tegen juni 2021 ongeveer 22.640 mijnwerkers van de volgende generatie in te zetten. Van de mijnwerkers wordt verwacht dat ze de hasjkracht van het bedrijf verhogen tot 2,3 Eh.

Positive sign – Gold loses ground compared to Bitcoin

Real Vision CEO Raoul Pal sees it as a positive sign for Bitcoin that the crypto currency is gaining ground against gold.

Raoul Pal, crypto expert and CEO of Real Vision, points out that gold is currently losing ground to Bitcoin (BTC). If the market-leading crypto currency can increasingly gain against the precious metal, this would also increase its persuasive power as a store of value.

Last month, Bitcoin gained 30.36% in the currency pair with the US dollar, an increase from $10,316 to $13,217. Over the same period, gold only gained 2.25%, up from $1,863 to $1,903.

Why is Bitcoin currently so strong?

While Bitcoin was able to make a strong climb in the last two weeks, gold and the stock market have also slowly recovered.

For the flight of the crypto currency since beginning of October thereby the interaction of three factors was responsible substantially.

Firstly, PayPal’s market entry has boosted sentiment in the crypto market; secondly, there is increasing interest from institutional investors, as evidenced by the investments of Square, MicroStrategy and Stone Ridge; and thirdly, the technical indicators in Bitcoin’s long-term price chart are positive.

Especially after Bitcoin was able to break the $12,000 mark, trading volumes have shot up significantly and the crypto currency has been able to leave many financial products behind. In this respect Pal:

„As expected, gold loses to Bitcoin. An:@michael_saylor Remember that! Next, I expect Bitcoin to be able to depend on the US dollar and the stock market…. Let’s wait and see. #Bitcoin

As Cointelegraph had reported, the jump over the $12,000 mark for Bitcoin was also a breakout in the weekly chart. Looking at the weekly and monthly charts in logarithmic representation, some crypto experts therefore soon see a new record high on the horizon.

The strong technical indicators as well as the increasing strength against gold and the stock market could further boost the current climb.

In the short term, however, one analyst still sees Bitcoin in an identity crisis, possibly even to the advantage of the crypto currency.

To this end, the crypto-trader Cantering Clark explains that gold usually comes under pressure when the US dollar rises, while Bitcoin is not yet clear whether this is an asset for risk avoidance or for risk increase (with the chance of profit increase). This uncertainty in turn reduces the correlation between the crypto currency and the US dollar. So writes Clark:

„The US dollar is gold’s counterpart, because if the US dollar index goes up, gold automatically comes under pressure. Bitcoin has the advantage of the identity crisis, because some see it as a store of value, while others see it as a multiplier for the stock market“.

Praise from investment guru Jones is the icing on the cake

While the market-leading Kryptowährung has thus opposite gold and the stock market the nose in front, also still another prominent investor speaks again for Bitcoin.

Investment guru Paul Tudor Jones, which had already disclosed its investment in Bitcoin in May, confirmed last its positive attitude opposite the crypto currency.

An analyst of the crypto stock exchange Deribit quotes Tudor Jones to that effect with the words

„I have never seen a store of value with so much intellectual capital behind it. […] If you take a short position in the bond market as a hedge, you are basically betting on the fallibility of humanity and not on its success.

Blockchain company Monerium: Europe „already“ has a digital euro

The ECB should give e-money issuers access to central bank reserves, Monerium said.

E-money issuer Monerium, supported by Consensys, believes the path to the digital euro is easier than the European Central Bank thinks

The fintech firm is focused on bridging fiat and blockchains by issuing programmable digital cash and released a response to the ECB’s recent public consultation on the digital euro on October 13th .

In the summer of 2019, Monerium was the first company worldwide to receive a license from the Icelandic regulatory authorities. This license is part of a new European legal framework for e-money services throughout the European Economic Area . It supplied Fiat payment services using the Ethereum block chain and later joined with the block chain protocol Algorand together .

In response to the ECB, Monerium argues that Europe only needs to acknowledge that it already has „a proven form of the digital euro“

In 2000 the European Commission described e-money as a “ digital alternative to cash “ and issued a directive. In this e-money was defined as “ technically neutral “ and as „electronic substitute for coins and banknotes“. Given this framework, Monerium now claims:

„In order to give e-money a status that is comparable to physical cash, the ECB only needs to grant the e-money issuers access to the reserves of the ECB.“

The inclusion of existing e-money issuers is better than the direct issue of a digital currency by the ECB to households and non-financial companies, according to Monerium. Direct issuance would mean a radical overhaul of the existing system in which the central bank primarily interacts with regulated financial institutions such as commercial banks.

Monerium backs up its claim with a report by two economists from the International Monetary Fund. These stated that non-bank providers could issue digital money with the support of the central bank. This could create a synthetic digital central bank currency (sCBDC).

According to Monerium, the existing European e-money framework is already compatible with the IMF’s key criteria for a stable digital currency. The transition from e-money to an sCBDC, as described by the IMF, would require the central bank to grant e-money issuers access to the reserves of the ECB:

„Such access would provide ‚a level playing field between e-money institutions and credit institutions‘, as the e-money directive also provides.“

The ECB has meanwhile made it clear that it wants to make a decision around mid-2021 on whether to introduce a digital euro.

An ECB report from October 2020 explained scenarios for and requirements for a future digital euro. The decisive factor here is that the central bank wants to achieve „strategic autonomy“ for the euro zone with a CBDC. She said that stablecoins from private and foreign actors „threaten to undermine financial stability and monetary sovereignty in the euro zone“.

Google Trends deutet Krypto-Hype an, der die Öffentlichkeit noch nicht erreicht hat

Die Google-Suche nach Wörtern, die sich auf die Krypto-Währung beziehen, hat ihren Höhepunkt im Jahr 2017 erreicht.

Institutionen und diejenigen, die bereits mit der Kryptowährung zu tun haben, scheinen für einen Großteil der diesjährigen Preisaktion verantwortlich zu sein.

Zuvor musste die BTC ihr Allzeithoch überschreiten, um das öffentliche Interesse zu wecken.

Trotz zahlreicher Marktdramen aus der Kryptogeldbranche scheint die Öffentlichkeit noch keine Notiz davon zu nehmen. Die Daten von Google Trends zeigen, dass die Anzahl der Suchanfragen nach Begriffen wie „Bitcoin“, „Ethereum“ und „Krypto“ viel geringer ist als Ende 2017.

Anhaltende Bürgerunruhen auf der ganzen Welt könnten den Mangel an öffentlichem Interesse erklären. Eine weitere Ursache könnte die Tatsache sein, dass der Preis von Bitcoin (BTC) unter seinem Allzeithoch bleibt. Währenddessen deuten andere Datenquellen, sowohl on-chain als auch anekdotisch, darauf hin, dass immer mehr wohlhabendere Investoren auf den Markt drängen.

Google durchsucht die Krypto-Suche und deutet an, dass Kleinanleger nicht zuschauen

Die Google-Suche nach Wörtern, die sich auf die Krypto-Währung beziehen, liegt derzeit weit unter dem Niveau von Ende 2017. Der Herausgeber von Bloomberg Digital, Joe Weisenthal, hob dies in einem Tweet hervor:

Für diejenigen, die die Branche genau beobachten, mag das mangelnde öffentliche Interesse überraschend sein. Immerhin ist der Preis von Bitcoin seit Anfang des Jahres um etwa 50% gestiegen, und die Explosion von DeFi hat die Preise neuerer digitaler Währungen in die Höhe schnellen lassen.

Dennoch sind die Google-Suchanfragen nach wie vor viel geringer als im Vorfeld des Marktgipfels 2017.

Der Marktcrash am Schwarzen Donnerstag hat möglicherweise auch Kleinanleger abgeschreckt. BeInCrypto hat vor kurzem Daten von OKEx Insights veröffentlicht, die darauf hindeuten, dass Bitcoin-Transaktionen in der Größe von Kleinanlegern um den jüngsten Sturz von BTC unter 4.000 Dollar stark zurückgegangen sind.

Wird das Marktgeschehen von 2o2o von Brancheninsidern und institutionellen Anlegern vorangetrieben?

Derselbe Bericht deutet darauf hin, dass die Marktvolatilität und die jüngste Konsolidierung über 10.000 $ mit einem Anstieg der Anzahl größerer Bitcoin-Transaktionen zusammenfiel. Die Autoren des Berichts spekulieren, dass dies ein Beweis für eine Zunahme institutioneller Käufe sein könnte.

Diese Erzählung würde auch gut zu den jüngsten anekdotischen Beweisen passen. BeInCrypto hat über mehrere Geschichten von Unternehmen und vermögenden Privatpersonen berichtet, die in diesem Jahr stark in Bitcoin investierten.

Zunächst gab der legendäre Hedgefondsmanager Paul Tudor Jones zu, BTC zu halten. Dann stellte das kanadische Restaurant Tahinis seine gesamten Barreserven auf Bitcoin um. Schließlich wurde der CEO von Microstrategy, Michael Saylor, durch seine massiven Käufe von BTC unter Verwendung von Firmengeldern zu einer sofortigen Legende in der Branche.

Unterdessen zeigt Google Trends, dass die Suche nach „DeFi“ im Laufe des Jahres zugenommen hat. Sie sind jedoch nach wie vor viel geringer als bei „Bitcoin“ oder „Ethereum“. Dies deutet darauf hin, dass das meiste Interesse an der noch jungen Nische aus der Kryptowährungsbranche selbst kommt.

Wird es ein neues Bitcoin All-Time-High benötigen, um die Hauptstraße anzuziehen?

Abgesehen von einem sprunghaften Anstieg des Interesses während des Runs auf 14.000 US-Dollar im letzten Sommer ist das Interesse von Google an Bitcoin seit dem Höchststand von 2017 ziemlich konstant geblieben. Ein ähnlicher Seitwärtstrend ist bei den Suchanfragen ab 2016 zu beobachten. Wie im Jahr 2019 gab es eine Spitze des Interesses. Auch er fiel mit den steigenden Preisen zusammen.

Das Interesse von Google an Bitcoin während der letzten Hausse begann im März/April 2017 wirklich zu steigen. Dies fiel mit dem Überschreiten des damaligen Allzeithochs von rund 1.125 Dollar zusammen.

Es stieg im Laufe des Jahres weiter an, wobei das Allzeithoch von Google Trends in derselben Woche eintrat, in der der Bitcoin-Preis fast 20.000 US-Dollar erreichte. Angesichts der Ähnlichkeiten dieses Mal müssen Privatanleger möglicherweise BTC sehen, um den früheren Höchstkurs zu durchbrechen, bevor die Kryptowährung wieder auf ihrem Radar erscheint.

Previsão de preço do Bitcoin: BTC / USD pode estender a correção de desvantagem para $ 10.000

Previsão de preço do Bitcoin: BTC / USD pode estender a correção de desvantagem para $ 10.000
No momento da escrita, BTC / USD está pairando em $ 10.592. Houve casos em que o BTC trocou mãos abaixo de $ 10.500, sustentando a ação do preço de baixa é uma tarefa difícil. Como está agora, o caminho de menor resistência ainda é para baixo. Uma olhada no gráfico diário mostra a formação de um padrão de flâmula de baixa.

Para onde vai o preço do BTC?

Olhando para o indicador técnico RSI (14) na faixa diária, BTC / USD não é feito com o lado negativo. Apesar da queda sofrida, o Bitcoin Revolution ainda não está sobrevendido. Isso significa que ainda há espaço que pode ser explorado pelos ursos. Além disso, a moeda pode continuar a seguir a tendência de baixa na medida em que o preço se mantenha abaixo das médias móveis de 9 e 21 dias.

No lado positivo, a recuperação pode não ser fácil. Primeiro, o suporte terá que ser classificado acima das médias móveis. Enquanto isso, um movimento sustentável acima desta barreira está localizado em torno de $ 10.800, o que pode negar o cenário de baixa e permitir uma recuperação estendida em direção aos níveis de resistência em $ 11.200, $ 11.400 e $ 11.600.

No entanto, um aumento na pressão de venda no mercado poderia forçar o preço do Bitcoin a um caminho doloroso e por meio de vários suportes provisórios de $ 9.900, $ 9.700 e $ 9.500

Olhando para o gráfico de 4 horas, os touros do Bitcoin não foram capazes de empurrar o preço de mercado acima das médias móveis. O BTC / USD sobreviveu ao suporte de $ 10.000, com o mercado retomando o impulso de alta. A moeda-rei provavelmente retornará ao mercado altista se o preço ultrapassar o nível de $ 10.700. A resistência mais alta está localizada em $ 10.800 e acima.

440000000 $ en Bitcoin quittent BitMEX alors que les traders de crypto répondent aux allégations de la CFTC

Les grands et petits commerçants BitMEX retirent le Bitcoin (BTC) de la bourse à un rythme rapide en raison des nouvelles des embrouilles juridiques de la plateforme de trading.

Jeudi, la US Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) a annoncé qu’elle facturait cinq entités opérationnelles BitMEX et les trois fondateurs de la plate-forme de trading crypto, Arthur Hayes, Benjamin Delo et Samuel Reed, pour violation de plusieurs réglementations CFTC

Le ministère américain de la Justice a également inculpé les trois fondateurs et son responsable du développement commercial, Gregory Dwyer, de violation de la loi sur le secret bancaire.

Selon l’économiste en chef de Chainalysis, Philip Gradwell, plus de 40000 Bitcoin ont quitté l’échange de BitMEX moins de 24 heures après l’annonce des allégations, totalisant environ 440000000 USD de retraits

«Depuis 17h00 UTC hier, 41 838 bitcoins ont été retirés de BitMEX en 4 547 transferts. La moitié des transferts concernaient 0,25 bitcoin ou moins, et le plus grand 1% des transferts représentait 63% du bitcoin retiré. Tant de petits commerçants et quelques grands acteurs se sont retirés. »

Dans un tweet ultérieur, Gradwell note que les données de Chainalysis montrent que les dépôts BTC de 24 heures dans les 15 principales plateformes de trading crypto avaient augmenté d’environ 30%, tandis que les sorties n’avaient augmenté que d’une petite quantité. L’économiste en chef de Chainalysis affirme qu’une tendance générale à détenir BTC sur ces échanges peut indiquer que «les gens sont calmes après que BitMEX ait facturé et vendu sur d’autres marchés».

Ocean Hackathon 2020 in Mexico has Blockchain as protagonist to solve marine challenges

The fifth edition of the Ocean Hackathon 2020 will include Blockchain technology as a tool to solve marine challenges. It will be held from 9 to 11 October.

The fifth edition of the Ocean Hackathon will take place from Friday 9th to Sunday 11th October 2020, simultaneously in several cities. In this edition in Mexico, the Bitcoin Bank technology is the protagonist, with the purpose of solving marine challenges.

The Ocean Hackathon is an event in which several teams access digital databases related to the sea for 48 hours without interruption, in order to solve a challenge through the development of a pilot demonstrator or a proof of concept.

The Ocean Hackathon challenges are based on the use of digital data provided by suppliers: nautical maps, satellite images, photos, seabed data, legal aspects, maritime safety, location of wrecks, buoys, tides, meteorology, biology, ecology, etc.

It aims to make available a variety of sea-related digital data for a 2-day continuous challenge in order to produce results corresponding to the challenges selected in the framework of the call for challenges.

Objectives of the Ocean Hackathon challenges

One of the objectives of the Ocean Hackathon’s challenges is to make cultural heritage more accessible, while generating and sharing knowledge, and also to improve the management of marine resources, to facilitate access to the sea, to imagine new modes of governance of the sea.

For this event, people will be able to join in by presenting a challenge that will take place during the event in the city of your choice from 9 to 11 October 2020.

At the end of the weekend, a team will be chosen to participate in the international launch competition at the end of 2020 in Brest and can win one of the prizes offered by their ambassadors.

What is a challenge?

An Ocean Hackathon challenge corresponds to a simple idea, a problem faced by anyone who enjoys or lives from the sea that push required for a project to develop.

The owners of the challenge look for team members in: The digital area: In programming, machine learning, big data, data processing, augmented reality, 3D, GIS.

Also, in the field of Sea, maritime, science: Like fishing, oceanography, specialist in coasts, geography, meteorology, satellite images, port professions, sea routes, blockchain, naval architecture, urbanism.

They also include spaces for the Web and graphics, Mediation, FabLab, business models among others.

Who can participate?

Participation in Ocean Hackathon is open to everyone, both entrepreneurs, students, researchers, associations, companies, users, or job seekers, etc.

The participants are then natural or legal persons, with a minimum age of 18 years, civilly responsible, and previously registered and pre-selected through the website. In this sense, the participant must, at the time of registration, specify whether he is participating in a personal capacity or on behalf of a legal entity (company, association, group, etc.).


At the end of the event the projects of the different teams will be presented to a local jury in each host city and later in front of a jury composed of Ocean Hackathon Ambassadors, during the final scheduled for the end of 2020 in the city of Brest (date to be confirmed).

The evaluation will also be based on the development of a demonstrator or proof of concept, the use of digital data, the elaboration of a reflection on the use of the proposed solution (and even an outline of a business model for projects with an economic vocation) and the innovative nature of the project.

Each team will have a few minutes to present its contribution in a session open to the public and to the local jury on Sunday 11 October in the afternoon; as well as to the jury of the final for the winning teams. The prizes will be awarded to the participants who make up the teams at the end of the local and national competitions. The local jury will also take the time to have an exchange with the teams and therefore make qualitative comments on each project. They will also be able to suggest possible development plans.

De aarde heeft Bitcoin nodig als de economie het ’schuldverzadigingspunt‘ bereikt – Keiser

De aarde bereikt een historisch „buigpunt“, waarschuwt Keiser nadat de centrale bank van Singapore toegeeft dat meer schuld voor niemand een optie is.

De wereld heeft nu zoveel schulden dat het onmogelijk is om er voor het eerst meer aan toe te voegen, zegt Max Keiser.

Op de laatste editie van zijn Keiser Report TV show op 22 sep. waarschuwde de RT gastheer dat de centrale banken verantwoordelijk waren voor het bereiken van een nieuw „buigpunt“ van de wereldwijde schuld.

Keiser op schuld: „We zitten op het verzadigingspunt“

Samen met co-host Stacy Herbert verwees Keiser naar opmerkingen van de centrale bank van Singapore, de Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS), die vorige week waarschuwde dat het kopiëren van economische herstelmethoden na de Tweede Wereldoorlog niet zou werken in 2020.

De centrale banken hebben wereldwijd ingegrepen in de markten, door aandelen en andere activa te kopen in een zeer controversiële beweging die bedoeld was om het economische effect van Covid-19 en zijn lockdowns te beperken.

„Ten eerste is het vrij duidelijk dat je je schulden niet kunt blijven verhogen,“ zei MAS-voorzitter Tharman Shanmugaratnam.

„Maar ik geloof niet dat de nieuwe, hogere schuldenniveaus waar veel landen nu naar toe gaan, houdbaar zullen zijn zonder dat dit aanzienlijke kosten met zich meebrengt voor zowel de groei als de rechtvaardigheid binnen hun samenleving.

De nationale schuld van de Verenigde Staten alleen al is dit jaar opgelopen tot 26,7 biljoen dollar, een stijging van 4 biljoen dollar sinds juni 2019.

„Er is geen capaciteit voor de economie van de aarde om nog meer schulden te dragen; we zitten op het verzadigingspunt“, vat Keiser samen.

Wat betreft de gevolgen voor landen die steeds meer schulden hebben, zei hij dat de gewone consument vanaf nu gewoon de rekening zou betalen:

„Nu, elke dollar die deze centrale banken drukken zal direct in de inflatie van de consumentenprijsindex gaan – en je zult het direct aan de kassa zien, en dat gaat naar ongelofelijke sociale onrust [.]“

In de jaren veertig van de vorige eeuw konden staten die schulden hadden opgebouwd door de strijd, deze opblazen. Deze keer, zei Herbert, waren er zoveel onbeduidende gigantische economische banen dat de lonen de prijsstijgingen niet zouden volgen, wat leidde tot het soort kloof tussen de elite en de rest van de samenleving dat Keiser „neo-feodalisme“ heeft genoemd.

MicroStrategy en Bitcoin low-time-voorkeursactiviteiten

Keiser is al lang voorstander van Bitcoin (BTC) als een ontsnappingsroute voor de gevolgen van fiatinflatie.

Met zijn vaste, onveranderlijke uitstoot en gedecentraliseerd netwerk vertegenwoordigt Bitcoin de antithese van centraal gestuurd geld.

BTC/USD heeft laten zien dat het stijgt met het opblazen van de balansen van de centrale banken, maar blijft gevoelig voor de prestaties van de Amerikaanse dollar, rapporteerde Cointelegraph.

„Bitcoin is, net als Gold, omgekeerd evenredig met de USD – *niet* de aandelenmarkt,“ wees Keiser op 22 september. „Laat je niet misleiden door willekeur.“

Naast zijn technische bekwaamheid promoot Bitcoin ook zogenaamd low-time-preference leven – het besparen van geld, veilig in de wetenschap dat zijn waarde niet zal worden opgeblazen in de loop van de tijd.

Zoals Saifedean Ammous uitlegt in zijn populaire boek „The Bitcoin Standard“, maakt dit uiteindelijk een betere en snellere vooruitgang van de maatschappij in de tijd mogelijk dan het simpelweg zo snel mogelijk uitgeven van geld aan zoveel mogelijk.

Keiser en Herbert merkten op dat de beslissing van MicroStrategy om meer dan $400 miljoen aan kasreserves in Bitcoin te steken, het bewijs was van de low-time-voorkeursmentaliteit die de grote bedrijven aantast.

Blockchain strategy: Bitkom takes stock

A year ago the government announced the „Blockchain Strategy“. One year later, Bitcoin Lifestyle app evaluates the current status of implementation. While some points are already well advanced, the ministries have so far completely neglected others.

A year ago, the federal government published the blockchain strategy

The paper is intended to set the course for the future of blockchain technology. A total of 158 experts gave opinions on the technology, which is how the strategy paper was drawn up. A total of ten federal ministries are playing a leading role in the blockchain strategy. The Federal Association for Information Technology, Telecommunications and New Media (Bitkom) now, exactly one year later, submitted an initial annual balance sheet on the implementation of the goals set.

The association represents around 2,700 companies and tries to create favorable framework conditions in politics and business for them. Commented on every single one of the government’s 44 blockchain technology announcements the association therefore added a traffic light system that divides these measures into the areas of ‚(as good as) completed‘, ‚in progress‘ and ’not yet started‘.

Green, yellow and red: The blockchain ride is bumpy

Earn a passive income with the interest-bearing wallet from ArbiSmart and the fully automated Crypto Arbitrage trading system. Benefit from an EU-licensed and regulated platform that offers investments with a return between 10.8% and 45% per year.

The processing of a good third (17) would be very advanced, almost half (20) are currently being processed. As in its statement, the association emphasized the progressiveness of the bill on electronic securities . The stakeholder was also satisfied with the research, development and funding.

Bitkom considered communication about the new technology to be less successful: not a single planned workshop was actually carried out. There is definitely interest. According to a survey carried out by Bitkom in the spring, two thirds of the companies surveyed (all with 20 or more employees) attached great importance to blockchain technology. But only six percent have already dealt with it in some form – theoretically or practically -.

However, seven measures have not yet received any attention. The use of blockchain technology is particularly poor in state-run operations. Neither the announced use for evidence nor for consumer protection were addressed by the responsible ministries (justice, interior and economic ministries), emphasized the association separately.

Bitcoin e Ether Market Update 27 de Agosto de 2020

O limite total do mercado criptográfico perdeu US$ 8,1 bilhões do seu valor desde a manhã de segunda-feira e agora está em US$ 356,4 bilhões. As dez moedas mais importantes ficaram em verde nas últimas 24 horas, sendo o Polkadot (DOT) o melhor jogador do período, adicionando 18,2% ao seu valor. No momento de escrever o Bitcoin Circuit (BTC) está sendo negociado a $11.386 no gráfico diário Bitstamp, enquanto o éter (ETH) continuou a deslizar e atingiu $383. O XRP do Ripple desceu para $0,274.


Bitcoin mais uma vez testou novamente o apoio semanal em $11.500 no domingo, 23 de agosto, mas sofreu mais uma (terceira rejeição consecutiva) lá. A principal moeda criptográfica fechou a semana em $11.631, com uma perda de 5,3 por cento para o período.

De acordo com o gráfico BTC/USD, o par abriu as negociações na segunda-feira, subindo para $11.758. A moeda, no entanto, enfrentou sua primeira área problemática perto da anteriormente estável linha de suporte de tendência de alta de médio prazo, agora virando resistência (em branco no nosso gráfico e melhor visto no gráfico de 4 horas). Além disso, a próxima resistência horizontal no gráfico diário estava situada a apenas um passo de distância – em $11.800.

Na terça-feira, 25 de agosto, o BTC fez uma queda acentuada para US $ 11.328 e apagou mais 3,6 por cento de seu valor. Os Bears foram capazes até mesmo de empurrar o preço para tão baixos $11.100 durante o intraday – a zona que consideramos crítica em termos de manter a tendência de alta intacta.

A sessão do meio da semana de quarta-feira foi positiva para os compradores e o bitcoin formou uma pequena vela verde de 11.468 dólares. No lado negativo das coisas, o preço foi rejeitado no seu caminho para quebrar acima do nível horizontal de $11.500, o que confirmou a sua importância na configuração atual.

O próximo passo para os touros é recuperar o nível acima mencionado e avançar para os $11.800. Abaixo, vemos $11.100 como o próximo grande apoio, seguido do apoio mensal de $10.700.


O token ETH do Projeto Ethereum deu outro passo para $390 no domingo, 23 de agosto, mas ainda assim continuou a gravitar em torno da zona de apoio horizontal ($400-$390).

A moeda caiu 10 por cento semanalmente.

O éter abriu o novo período de negociação na segunda-feira, subindo para $409 em seu maior aumento de um dia desde 13 de agosto. Isto resultou em um aumento de 4,6 por cento, já que a mencionada linha horizontal foi superada com sucesso.

Na terça-feira, 25 de agosto o ETH caiu para $383, apagou 6,3 por cento de seu valor e até mesmo tocou a extremidade inferior da zona de apoio no gráfico semanal em $370 durante o intraday.

A sessão de quarta-feira encontrou a moeda se movendo na faixa de $393-$376 apenas para acabar formando uma pequena vela verde para $386.

O próximo passo para os touros é retomar o nível de $400 como importante apoio psicológico e consolidar-se adequadamente antes de continuar a subir. Para baixo, vemos $370 como o próximo suporte crítico, seguido por $360 e $335.
