Sberbank will launch a block-platform for buying digital assets

Sberbank intends to launch a block-platform through which users can acquire digital financial assets (DFA). This was stated by Sberbank CEO German Gref during an online presentation on Investor Day.

The new platform is planned to be launched after the entry into force of the law „On CFA“.

„On 1 January, the relevant law will come into force. We want to launch our new block platform, which will provide services for the purchase of CFA. And there we are going to realize the possibility of buying green instruments from the very beginning,“ Gref said.

He also allowed Sberbank to release its own stelecoin in 2021:

„We have all the developments on this topic and it is quite possible that we will start experimenting next year with the production of our own currency – the so-called Sbercoin.

Earlier it was reported that Sberbank may issue ruble-linked stablecoin to pay for other digital assets.

Recall that in July 2020 the State Duma passed a law on CFA after several years of work.

In November, Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin said that the Russian authorities would direct the development of cryptov currencies in a „civilized direction“. Later, the government approved a draft law on the procedure for submitting tax returns for operations with cryptocurrency.

Ray Dalio admitted that he „may be missing something“ about Bitcoin when the price was over $17,000

„If I’m wrong about these things, I’d love to be corrected,“ said Dalio.

In a Twitter thread posted on November 17, Ray Dalio stated that he believed that Bitcoin (BTC) was not an efficient exchange medium or store of value because of its volatility. He also stated that governments could ban cryptoactives if they become a threat to fiat currencies. However, he also admitted that he „may be missing something“ and invited others to intervene with their explanations.

DeFi is here to stay despite signs of being „a bubble,“ says Binance CEO

„I can’t imagine central banks, big institutional investors, companies or multinationals using [Bitcoin],“ said Dalio. „If I’m wrong about these things, I’d love to be corrected.

I might be missing something about Bitcoin so I’d love to be corrected. My problems with Bitcoin Era being an effective currency are simple. (1/5)

Dalio’s comments came after an increase in the price of BTC, as the cryptoactive surpassed the USD 17,500 mark in less than 24 hours. The bullish news led many contributors in space to share their views with the billionaire.

„Let’s put it this way Bitcoin is money, everything else is credit,“ said Mati Greenspan.

Meltem Demirors, Director of Strategy at CoinShares, offered a more in-depth answer on how she believed Bitcoin could be used effectively for payments, but added that it was „a savings technology at its core. BlockFi CEO Zac Prince followed up with his own thread, addressing each of Dali’s points separately. He cited the institutional investors who have recently decided to adopt Bitcoin, including Fidelity Digital Assets, Square, Paul Tudor Jones, Bill Miller and Stanley Druckenmiller, to name a few.

2/ @RayDalio, you are starting from a bad initial position of Bitcoin needing to be a currency to be valuable. Better to think of it as an asset subject to the laws of supply and demand like gold, art etc. There’s a great analogy about this – „Bitcoin has a platypus problem“ pic.twitter.com/lRQY0XU2kS

Last Thursday, Dalio said he believed governments would likely increase their efforts to ban cryptomonies if they saw material growth. His comments came when the price of BTC was approximately USD 2,000 less than the current price, USD 15,700 compared to USD 17,732.

Aplicativo Coinbase cai assim como o Bitcoin Skyrockets

A Coinbase disse que o site e os aplicativos móveis não estão carregando, acrescentando que está „atualmente investigando o problema“.

O site de troca de moedas criptográficas, Coinbase, aparentemente caiu, assim como o preço do bitcoin continua a marchar mais alto em direção a máximos de três anos, perto de $17.000 por moeda. Os usuários da Coinbase que tentavam acessar seu portfólio foram recebidos com uma mensagem de que o site está „temporariamente indisponível“.

De acordo com uma atualização da empresa na segunda-feira, a Coinbase disse que o site e os aplicativos móveis não estão carregando, acrescentando que está „atualmente investigando a questão“, mas nenhum outro comentário foi fornecido.

A Coinbase reconheceu que houve interrupções curtas ao longo do dia antes de declarar que o incidente foi resolvido e, desde o momento em que foi escrito, estava monitorando os resultados.

O preço da Bitcoin tem subido constantemente este mês, em parte em resposta ao anúncio do PayPal de que finalmente começou a permitir que os clientes comprassem e vendessem Bitcoin e outras moedas criptográficas usando suas carteiras on-line.

A bolsa criptográfica baseada em São Francisco sofreu uma série de interrupções durante os movimentados períodos de negociação deste ano, provavelmente devido a uma venda maciça por baleias e outros investidores. O incidente mais notável veio em março, quando a comunidade criptográfica estava se preparando para o aperto do fornecimento de bitcoin, conhecido como redução pela metade, o que também causou a paralisação do comércio.

Além disso, os usuários da Coinbase foram bloqueados de suas contas durante a queda provocada pela queda do coronavírus que limpou mais de 20% do valor do bitcoin em menos de uma hora.

Os usuários de Coinbase relataram ser incapazes de negociar durante estes momentos de pico de volatilidade do Bitcoin pelo menos três vezes ao longo de 2020.

Infelizmente, os aumentos de preços ocorrem freqüentemente quando os comerciantes querem comprar e vender o máximo. Nesses casos, os lucros potenciais podem simplesmente desaparecer quando eles não podem fazer nada.

O momento em que o bitcoin sobe e a Coinbase desce lembrou à comunidade o mercado de touro de 2017, quando a troca criptográfica não conseguiu lidar com o aumento da atividade, assim como o preço do bitcoin atingiu um pico de quase 20.000 dólares.
