Robinhood records significantly more crypto users

„Crypto boom“ – Robinhood records significantly more crypto users than in the previous year

In the first two months of the new year alone, the trading platform recorded 6 million new crypto users.

Robinhood, the recently controversial trading app that specialises in small retail investors, has revealed that the number of crypto investors on its platform has increased 15-fold year-on-year.

As the company reveals in a new report called „Crypto Goes Mainstream“, more than 3 million new users bought Bitcoin Pro cryptocurrencies through Robinhood in January. In February, there have been 2.9 million new users so far. So in the first two months of the new year alone, the number of „crypto newcomers“ has already grown by almost 6 million users.

A considerable increase, because in the strongest month of last year (July 2020), only 401,000 new crypto users were gained, although trading activity on the crypto markets was particularly high at that time due to the Bitcoin halving.

On average, Robinhood added around 200,000 new crypto users per month in 2020, making the new figures all the more impressive. Transaction sizes also reflect this picture, with an average of $500 worth of transactions currently being made, a 100% increase on the first three quarters of the previous year. The report concludes:

„The numbers are clear: 2021 has started with a crypto boom.“

In the context of the GameStop affair

It seems the platform wants to jump on this boom, as Robinhood already revealed in a tweet last week that deposits and withdrawals for cryptocurrencies will soon be available.

The company, which already indicates in its name (Robinhood) that it is committed to the „little man“, has a lot to make up for with the latter. In the context of the GameStop affair, the platform had temporarily suspended trading in GME shares. Trading in the cryptocurrency Dogecoin (DOGE) was also suspended after it too was catapulted to new heights by small investors. Observers suspect that the company thus wanted to protect its big backers at the expense of the little people.

This led to a political aftermath in which the American parliament immediately questioned Robinhood’s entire business model. CEO Vlad Tenev replied, however, that the trading halt had to be carried out due to legal requirements by the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).

Nowe dokumenty BlackRock powołują się na możliwość

Nowe dokumenty BlackRock powołują się na możliwość wprowadzenia instrumentów pochodnych na Bitcoin

BlackRock, amerykański menedżer aktywów o wartości 7,8 bln USD, złożył w SEC nowe dokumenty, w których „Bitcoin“ jest wymieniony 25 razy.

Wydaje się, że BlackRock, największy na świecie zarządzający aktywami, przygotowuje się do wejścia na rynek instrumentów pochodnych na Bitcoin (BTC): ujawniają to niektóre dokumenty złożone w amerykańskiej Komisji Papierów Wartościowych i Giełd (SEC).

Dwa dokumenty, o których mowa, złożone przez „BlackRock Funds V“ i „BlackRock Global Allocation Fund“, pojawiły się wczoraj na stronie internetowej SEC. Obaj Crypto Bank wspominają o możliwości, a nie potwierdzeniu, wykorzystania instrumentów pochodnych na Bitcoin i innych aktywach w ramach ich programu inwestycyjnego.

W szczególności, dokumenty mogą być odczytywane:

Każdy fundusz może korzystać z instrumentów zwanych „instrumentami pochodnymi“, które są instrumentami finansowymi czerpiącymi wartość z jednego lub więcej papierów wartościowych, towarów (takich jak złoto lub ropa naftowa), walut (w tym Bitcoin), stóp procentowych, zdarzeń kredytowych lub indeksów (miara wartości lub stóp, takich jak indeks S&P 500 lub Prime Lending Rate).

BlackRock wspomina również o Bitcoinie w dalszej części rozdziału dotyczącego różnych czynników ryzyka związanego z instrumentami pochodnymi:

„Inwestycja funduszu w kontrakty terminowe Bitcoin może wiązać się z ryzykiem braku płynności, ponieważ nie jest notowana tak często jak inne kontrakty terminowe, ponieważ rynek kontraktów terminowych BTC jest stosunkowo nowy“.

W ostatnich miesiącach wielu dyrektorów BlackRock wyraziło bardzo pozytywne opinie na temat Bitcoin, podkreślając jak stopniowo zmienia się opinia na Wall Street o kryptokursach. Rick Rieder, CIO Fixed Income w BlackRock, przewidział w listopadzie, że BTC „w dużej mierze zastąpi złoto [ponieważ] przeniesienie Bitcoin jest znacznie bardziej praktyczne niż przenoszenie sztabek złota“.

Larry Fink, dyrektor generalny BlackRock, ujawnił kilka tygodni później, że jego firma bardzo uważnie śledzi rozwój Bitcoin:

„Bitcoin przykuł uwagę i wyobraźnię wielu ludzi. Ale nie został on jeszcze przetestowany i jest dość mały w porównaniu z innymi rynkami. […]

Czy może stać się rynkiem globalnym? To jest możliwe

Demonstrując zainteresowanie BlackRock kryptokur walutami, firma poszukuje obecnie osoby, która obejmie funkcję „Vice President, Blockchain Lead“ w swoim nowojorskim biurze. Kandydat musi mieć co najmniej roczne doświadczenie w branży łańcuchów blokowych, a także rozumieć takie pojęcia, jak „kryptograficzne funkcje haszowe, mechanizmy konsensusu w sieciach rozproszonych oraz kryptografia oparta na kluczu publicznym/prywatnym“.

Questo è il più grande rischio per il mercato delle criptovalute secondo Pantera Capital CIO

Secondo Joey Krug, Co-chief Investment Officer (CIO) presso la principale società di investimenti di criptovaluta Pantera Capital, il trading con leva finanziaria è il rischio più grande per il mercato delle criptovalute in termini di ciò che potrebbe causare „qualcosa da far saltare in aria“ . (Aggiornato alle 19:20 UTC con ulteriori commenti di Joey Krug).

Ha parlato ieri durante la teleconferenza di Pantera Capital

Secondo Krug, alcune persone si compiacciono quando si rendono conto che la crittografia è qui per restare. Di conseguenza, fanno leva su di esso, pensando che non possa scendere così tanto perché le istituzioni si precipiteranno e compreranno, salvando la situazione. Ma alla fine, quando il coperchio salta e le offerte non ci sono, le liquidazioni di long levered faranno scendere il prezzo.

Secondo i dati di bybt.com, durante il crollo del mercato del 10-11 gennaio, sono state liquidate più di 3 miliardi di dollari di posizioni lunghe. Per fare un confronto, il 12 gennaio sono state liquidate posizioni corte per un valore di oltre 200 milioni di USD e anche posizioni lunghe per oltre 200 milioni di USD.

Questo è il più grande rischio per il mercato crittografico secondo Pantera Capital CIO 102

Come riportato , il ricercatore e analista di criptovalute Willy Woo ha affermato che „a differenza dei precedenti arresti anomali degli ultimi 2 anni, in cui i mercati sovra-indebitati guidati dalla liquidazione del trader, questo è iniziato sui mercati spot, quindi è stato notevolmente amplificato da un singolo scambio parzialmente fallito, ma non si è spento per il bene dell’ecosistema „.

Il trading con leva si riferisce al prestito di fondi in modo da poter prendere una posizione più ampia di quella che potresti fare con i tuoi fondi esistenti in modo da poter potenzialmente generare un profitto più elevato. Tuttavia, mentre il trading con margine consente ai trader di amplificare i loro rendimenti, può anche portare a maggiori perdite e liquidazioni, motivo per cui i trader esperti tendono a consigliare ai nuovi arrivati ​​di stare lontano dal trading con leva.

Per quanto riguarda la stessa Pantera Capital, la società ha eliminato alcuni rischi quando il rapporto tra valore di mercato e valore realizzato (MVRV) è salito al livello più alto dal 2017 pochi giorni fa. L’indicatore mostra su quanti guadagni non realizzati si trovano i titolari di bitcoin (BTC) . Quando questa metrica diventa alta, significa che il mercato è surriscaldato e se inizia a diminuire, le persone vendono per bloccare i guadagni per panico o paura, ha spiegato Krug durante la chiamata.

Shenzhen lottery winners receive ‚red envelopes‘ containing digital yuan

Winners of the lottery organised by the Chinese city will have 10 days to spend the digital currency at 10,000 supported merchants

Plans to test and encourage the widespread adoption of China’s central bank digital currency, known as Digital Currency Electronic Payment or digital yuan, continue apace.

To celebrate the new year, the city of Shenzhen on Friday offered its residents Bitcoin Millionaire the option of participating in a municipal lottery, with registrations open until this morning at 10 a.m. local time on Monday. Interested parties registered for the lottery using the iShenzhen event registration platform, the administration’s announcement explained.

In total, the city plans to distribute 100,000 „red envelopes“ to lottery winners, each containing 200 digital yuan (about $31). The total value of the envelopes is estimated at around $3 million, and beneficiaries will be able to spend the funds received at the 10,000 supported merchants. The envelopes will only be active for 10 days, after which the funds will expire.

To spend the digital currency, lottery winners will have to download and install an app and create a personal digital wallet, after registering with their ID card and mobile phone number.

As previously reported, China’s much-anticipated digital currency has already been used in over 4 million transactions since November 2020, with a total value of over 2 billion yuan ($299 million). Pilot programmes have been running since April 2020, with the first trials focused on major cities such as Shenzhen, Chengdu, Suzhou and Xiongan.

The unveiling of the digital yuan has prompted public officials and journalists to analyse its potential geopolitical implications and impact on the global financial system, which continues to revolve around the US dollar as the global reserve currency. In mid-December 2020, the South China Morning Post quoted Zhou Xiaochuan, president of the Chinese Finance Association and former governor of the People’s Bank of China, as saying that the DCEP has no intention of replacing global fiat currencies such as the US dollar or the euro.

Bitcoin: next step $25,000

According to Simon Peters analyst, after reaching $23,000, the next target for bitcoin’s price is $25,000.

In fact, Peters himself had already speculated at the beginning of December that this could be the price threshold that could be reached during this rally, and now he confirms that the hypothesis on the short term remains the same.

However he warns investors because he suggests that the path could be bumpy.

In fact while $25,000 remains as an important short-term target, there could be dips and corrections along the way.

Peters believes a drop to as low as $14,000 or $13,000 is possible, though unlikely, although after breaking 2017 highs above $20,000 this level could act as support in the event of a retracement.

Some investors are taking the opportunity offered by this week’s increases to profit, so much so that on December 16, for example, there were even 27% more closed bitcoin positions than open positions.

The scenario in which those who bought at lower prices might decide to monetize their gains immediately therefore remains plausible, in the short term.

However, a number of investors are recognizing that despite this week’s rapid price increase, bitcoin’s true potential may reveal itself over the long term, such that it may lead them to perhaps hold bitcoin in their portfolios for months, if not years. According to Peters, this idea over the course of 2021 could become even more consolidated.

So on one hand Bitcoin has attracted the attention of the whole world in these days thanks to its fast and powerful increase in value, recording new all-time highs around the level of $ 23,000, where for now it remains.

Bitcoin well over $25,000

An important goal, in preparation for about three years, but on the other hand it could mark the beginning of an upward race that according to Peters could bring the price to $ 70,000 or even $ 90,000 by Christmas next year.

In fact, demand continues to outstrip supply, and institutional investors continue to seek more exposure to bitcoin to hedge against inflation. These two factors have helped keep the price above $20,000, and if this trend continues in the months ahead, prices could climb even higher.

Nøglefaktorer, der kørte Bitcoin til nye $ 28.377 ATH gennem 2020

I løbet af 2020 faldt Bitcoin til $ 4.000-zonen og steg til et nyt rekordhøjt niveau på $ 28.377; her er nøgledrivere, der skubbede BTC til denne nye milepæl

Indhold

  • Stimulus program, Bitcoin halvering
  • MiscroStrategy, Square, PayPal træder ind
  • Bitcoin overgår guld mere end 10 gange

I år har Bitcoin vist en betydelig stigning i værdi ved at ramme en ny heltidshøjde over $ 28.000 og overgå Visa-giganten efter markedsdækning.

Nedenfor er de vigtigste faktorer og begivenheder, der i sidste ende gjorde det muligt for flagskibskryptoen at nå sin nye milepæl på diagrammer, en milepæl, der er miles væk fra rekordhøjden i 2017.

I år har Bitcoin bevæget sig ret hurtigt og nogle gange vist pludselige tilbagesendelser.

Stimulus program, Bitcoin halvering

En af de vigtigste drivkræfter i år for Bitcoin har været det ustoppelige kontantstimuleringsprogram til støtte for banker, virksomheder og SMV samt „survival checks“ til en værdi af $ 1.200 til gennemsnitlige amerikanske borgere.

Pandemien med oprindelse i Kina og den efterfølgende låsning fik den amerikanske regering til at iværksætte kvantitative lettelser. En ny stimuluspakke på $ 900 millioner er for nylig godkendt i USA, der skal udbetales næste år.

Den Bitcoin-halvering, der fandt sted i maj, har ikke vist sig at være prissat i, som mange eksperter mener. Imidlertid siger nogle højt profilerede økonomiske ledere, der indrømmer Bitcoins rolle som et sikkert tilflugtssted, at det overhovedet ikke havde nogen indflydelse.

Den 12. marts, kendt som sort torsdag, oplevede de finansielle markeder og olie et massivt sammenbrud, da råolie faldt til under nul. Bitcoin tabte den dag omkring 50 procent inden for 24 timer sammen med andre kryptomarkeder.

MiscroStrategy, Square, PayPal træder ind

I sensommeren begyndte finansielle institutioner at tildele en stor mængde midler til at erhverve Bitcoin. Den børsnoterede forretningssoftwaregigant MicroStrategy foretog flere store BTC-opkøb i august og derefter igen om efteråret. Virksomheden bruger omkring $ 425 millioner på BTC.

Jack Dorsey’s Square sluttede sig til MicroStrategy med at erhverve Bitcoin og satsede $ 50 millioner på Bitcoin. I midten af ​​efteråret meddelte PayPal, at det vil give sine kunder mulighed for at erhverve Bitcoin og andre topkryptoer for at bruge dem som betalingsmiddel med mere end 26 millioner leverandører næste år.

Hvad banker angår, har der også været positive skridt for Bitcoin. For det første fik amerikanske banker lov til at fungere som depotplatforme. Også en JP Morgan-analytiker kaldte Bitcoin „digitalt guld“ i sin rapport.
Bitcoin overgår guld mere end 10 gange

Således udgør Bitcoins år-til-dato vækst hele 276,90 procent. Det har overgået den traditionelle sikre havn, guld, der steg 23,41 procent i YTD.

$100,000 Bitcoin przeszedł ze snu do oczekiwania

Bitcoin za 100.000 dolarów przeszedł z fajkowego snu zaledwie kilka miesięcy temu do realistycznego celu.

Zakupy instytucjonalne, spadek wartości dolara i charakter cykli rynkowych sumują się do 100.000 dolarów, co stanowi realną wartość.
Takie rozważania były prawie nie do pomyślenia w marcu

Kiedy Bitcoin spadł do 3 850 dolarów w marcu, pomysł 100 000 dolarów ceny tag był tak daleko jak sam księżyc. Dziewięć miesięcy później jednak, z instytucji wlewających miliardy dolarów i nowy cykl rynkowy dopiero się zaczyna, krajobraz jest zupełnie inny, a sześciocyfrowy Bitcoin Era nie jest już mrzonką, ale czymś w rodzaju oczekiwania.

Nabywcy instytucjonalni

Wartość własności Bitcoinów przez spółki publiczne została oszacowana na 6,9 mld dolarów w połowie października, od kiedy to instytucje wydały około 3 mld dolarów na akumulację Bitcoinów, i to właśnie te, które ukazały się publicznie. Instytucje piętrzą się na Bitcoinie w mało wiarygodnych proporcjach, z wszelkimi oczekiwaniami, że nie tylko będzie to trwało nadal, ale będzie rosło do 2021 roku.

Kiedy porównać to do wszystkich poprzednich wybiegów byków, które były prawie wyłącznie detaliczne, poziom pieniędzy przychodzących w przestrzeń jest wielkość wyższa niż kiedykolwiek wcześniej. Popyt na Bitcoin znacznie przewyższa podaż, a kiedy masz kupujących gotowych rzucić na niego setki milionów dolarów, nagle 100.000 dolarów nie wydaje się aż tak szalony.

Wzorce historyczne

Inną rzeczą, którą należy zwrócić uwagę na ten cykl i potencjał Bitcoin do trafienia 100.000 dolarów jest to, że zaczynamy ten cykl od 10.000 dolarów. To oczywiście niebezpieczne zakładać, że wyniki z przeszłości będą się powtarzać, ale spojrzenie na tygodniowy wykres Bitcoin pokazuje bardzo wyraźnie, dlaczego sześciocyfrowy Bitcoin jest całkowicie realną propozycją:

Podczas gdy możemy się spodziewać, że ten bieg byka będzie bardziej wydłużony niż poprzednie, spojrzenie na ten wykres, w połączeniu ze zwiększonym popytem na Bitcoin, od razu pokazuje, że bieg rozłożony do 100.000 dolarów jest, historycznie rzecz biorąc, bardzo prawdopodobne.

Dolar Spadek

Innym czynnikiem, który może przyspieszyć bieg do 100.000 dolarów Bitcoin jest potencjalny spadek wartości dolara. Pandemia koronaawirusowa, która nie wykazuje oznak spowolnienia, doprowadziła do wydrukowania przez USA około 4 bilionów dolarów w gotówce, co nie pozostało niezauważone przez ekonomistów, szefów instytucji i sam indeks dolara:

DXY

Cena dolara spadła o 13% od marca, w tym czasie cena Bitcoina wzrosła około 4x, a teraz zbliża się do krytycznego czteroletniego wsparcia. Z 900 miliardów dolarów pakiet stymulacyjny zostanie wkrótce podpisany, a wirus mutuje, jest mało prawdopodobne, że dolar będzie odwrócić jego spadek w najbliższym czasie, co tylko zwiększy szanse Bitcoina osiągnąć 100.000 dolarów wartości.
$100,000 Bitcoin a Sign of the Times

Fakt, że możemy uznać Bitcoin o wartości 100 000 dolarów za wiarygodny cel, pokazuje, jak daleko ekosystem posunął się w tym roku, a katalizatorem jest ogromny wykup instytucjonalny, który za tym stoi. Handel detaliczny musi jeszcze naprawdę wejść w ten obraz w jakikolwiek sensowny sposób, a kiedy to zrobi, będzie to prawdopodobnie wtedy, gdy Bitcoin przekroczył granicę 50.000 dolarów, co samo w sobie będzie niesamowitym znacznikiem.

Bitcoin SV steckt unter 180-Dollar-Widerstand fest und kann nicht nach oben drücken

Bitcoin SV ist seit September bereichsgebunden. Die Münze schwankt zwischen $151 und $185. Die Käufer waren nicht in der Lage, den Widerstand bei 180 $ zu brechen.

Jedes Mal, wenn Käufer den Widerstand bei 180 $ durchbrechen, fällt der Preis in die bereichsgebundene Zone. Am 24. November zum Beispiel stieg die Münze auf 216 $, fiel aber sofort in die Zone der Preisspanne.

Am 4. Dezember gab es einen Preisanstieg, als die Münze auf 200 $ stieg, aber der Preis zog sich wieder in die bereichsgebundene Zone zurück. Heute fällt die Münze, nachdem sie auf einem höheren Preisniveau zurückgewiesen wurde. Der Münze fehlen Käufer auf einem höheren Preisniveau. Wenn es den Käufern jedoch nicht gelingt, den Überkopf-Widerstand von 180 $ zu durchbrechen, wird das Krypto auf die bereichsgebundene Zone beschränkt bleiben.

Anzeige des SV-Indikators der Bitcoin

Der BSV befindet sich auf Stufe 53 der Periode 14 des Relative Strength Index. Er zeigt an, dass sich die Münze in einer Aufwärtstrend-Zone befindet. Die Altmünze befindet sich über dem 40%-Bereich des Tagesstochastic, aber die stochastischen Bänder sind horizontal flach. Sie zeigt an, dass sie sich in einem zinsbullischen Momentum befindet, aber die Münze sich in einer Seitwärtsbewegung befindet. Übrigens befinden sich die Preisbalken oberhalb der SMAs, was auf die Möglichkeit eines Anstiegs der Münze hindeutet.

Schlüsselwiderstandszonen: $320, $340, $360
Wichtigste Unterstützungszonen: $140, $120, $100

Was ist die nächste Richtung für den BSV/USD?

Bitcoin SV muss den 180 $ Overhead-Widerstand noch überzeugend brechen. Das Fibonacci-Werkzeug hat jedoch eine mögliche Bewegung der Münze angedeutet. Am Aufwärtstrend vom 30. November testete ein zurückverfolgter Kerzenkörper die 50%ige Fibonacci-Rückverfolgbarkeitsstufe. Dieses Retracement deutet darauf hin, dass die Münze steigen und Stufe 2,0 Fibonacci-Verlängerung oder den Höchststand von $220,47 erreichen wird.

Ethereum is getting rarer: Why this ETH upgrade is an absolute game changer

On December 10th, the application for the technical proposal EIP 1559 went live in the Ethereum Github Code Repository. According to analysts, this proposal may make ETH less difficult in the long run.

Github is a repository where developers can suggest changes or additions to a codebase. Proposal EIP 1559 was uploaded to Bitcoin Superstar as a pull request – which means that nothing is set in stone yet.

But, if the proposal is approved (which may take longer than expected) it would have a big impact on the Ethereum blockchain.

How can EIP 1559 make Ethereum more valuable?

On the Ethereum blockchain, when users send a transaction or use a decentralized application, they have to pay a fee to the miners. The charge is called „gas,“ and as user activity on the blockchain increases, so can the gas costs.

As an example, let’s say a user wants to buy a new decentralized financial token (DeFi) on Uniswap. On a normal day, 10 to 20 GWEI would be enough to get the transaction through quickly.

But if the Ethereum blockchain network is congested and user activity is high, GWEI, the measure of gas costs, could spike to 50 to 100 at times. In this case, a transaction could cost anywhere from $ 10 to $ 100, and possibly even more depending on the size of the transaction.

The EIP 1559 proposal provides for a fixed fee for transactions. This means that users would no longer have to pay high fees even if the blockchain was overcrowded.

In return, the miners would receive a small tip as compensation for the lower fees they might receive in the future.

According to cryptocurrency analyst Alex Saunders, this proposal is making ETH less common. Saunders:

„EIP-1559 Fee Market Change pull request is now live on @github. $ ETH will get tighter, harder money & with negative net issuance, stock to flow will literally be off the charts. “

There are two reasons EIP 1559 could make ETH less common over time. First, it makes the amount of fees miners will receive more predictable, reducing the pressure to sell in the market. Second, having a fixed fee and compensation system for miners means that the issue of ETH is also predictable.
