Gli NFT dovrebbero essere venduti per miliardi, non milioni

Come valuti una NFT? Il mese scorso, Jack Dorsey ha venduto il suo primo Tweet come NFT per quasi tre milioni di dollari. Elon Musk ha seguito, vendendo un Tweet sugli NFT come NFT. Un altro miliardario meno seguito, l’ex capo della Disney Michael Eisner, ha annunciato l’intenzione di rendere pubblica la sua azienda, Topps, la società di carte collezionabili del baseball, tramite SPAC, con valutazioni legate agli oggetti da collezione che si diramano in NFT.

Come vanno Jack ed Elon, così fa il resto dei soldi intelligenti. E artisti intelligenti

La capacità di un artista di sfruttare la propria musica, immagini o altre creazioni in tutte le forme nell’universo è sempre stata gravemente ostacolata dalle persone di mezzo. Distributori, avvocati, diritto d’autore internazionale universale. Dimostrare di possedere qualcosa significa stabilire una catena di titoli e altri grattacapi aziendali che potrebbero essere rimandati a più tardi.

Quindi, per evitare di finire in una tutela, o di non possedere il proprio nome, lavoro, somiglianza, diritti e tutti gli altri modi in cui le persone sporche si sono sviluppate per assicurarsi che il lavoro di un artista faccia di più per tutti tranne che per l’artista, perché non dovrebbe? non hai tutto quello che fai?

Vuoi essere la persona che ha pagato una cena sushi da $ 25 nel 2011 con dieci Bitcoin? In questi giorni, se c’è un carrozzone tecnologico su cui salire, FOMO non è l’unica ragione. I Tweet di Musk sono stati motori del mercato per anni nonostante l’FTC (o meglio, grazie a.)

Tutti parlano di Tina, il nuovo doc della HBO. Difficile immaginare che l’unica cosa che ha ottenuto dal divorzio con Ike fosse il nome „Tina“. Se allora esistessero solo gli NFT. Andrebbe tutto bene lì sulla blockchain

Imparando dai Tina e dai Brittanys, artisti come Shontelle, Platinum Recording Artist e Grammy Nominated songwriter, stanno usando gli NFT per far funzionare il loro IP, sfruttandolo come potrebbe fare un distributore, ma senza dover rinunciare alla maggior parte dei profitti ad agenti, commissioni , avvocati, rivenditori. Non vende semplicemente IP NFT, ma crea esperienze NFT basate sullo sfruttamento delle sue proprietà intellettuali.

In questo modo, Shontelle, come una delle prime musiciste donne di colore a emettere i propri oggetti da collezione high-tech, sta aprendo la strada a artisti, intrattenitori e atleti più diversi per utilizzare in modo creativo gli NFT per connettersi direttamente con i fan attraverso la sua asta NFT House Party. (questa settimana dall’8 all’11 aprile, su owens.market , un hub NFT). Non solo ora ha un maggiore controllo sulla sua arte, ma ha anche un maggiore controllo sui suoi guadagni monetari. È avere il suo controllo creativo, come qualsiasi artista ora può, che in genere solo i miliardari avevano in precedenza e le crea più denaro del semplice valore monetario intrinseco dell’IP sottostante.

Quindi quanto vale davvero un NFT? Stiamo imparando molto sui modelli di valore quest’anno. Gli economisti non sanno se la registrazione globale della rottura del debito emessa dai governi durante la pandemia porterà o meno all’inflazione (dai! – Questo era nel quiz di Macroeconomia !!!). Le azioni di GameStop e AMC si sono staccate dal rapporto prezzo / utili per così tanto tempo ormai l’unica risposta a ciò che vale qualcosa è, ciò che il mercato dice che vale.

E in questo momento, il mercato sta usando un’immaginazione molto potente e lungimirante per valutare milioni di NFT. E perchè no?

Das von Visa unterstützte Bitcoin-Startup startet eine Lightning-basierte App für globale Zahlungen

Zap kündigt Strike Global an, eine Bitcoin-Zahlungs-App für globale Überweisungen.

Die Einführung von Strike Global

Zap, ein Lightning Network-Zahlungs-Startup, das von Visa im Rahmen seines Fintech Fast Track-Programms unterstützt wird, kündigte am 6. Januar die Einführung von Strike Global an, einer Zahlungs- und Überweisungs-App, die die Bitcoin (BTC)-Layer-Two-Technologie nutzt.

Eine Ankündigung von CEO Jack Mallers geht detailliert auf die Unterschiede zwischen Standard-Fiat-Transfer-Mechanismen und dem Lightning-powered-Mechanismus in Strike Global ein. Mallers konzentrierte sich auf Überweisungen, ein Multi-Milliarden-Dollar-Geschäft, das immer noch größtenteils über teure Zwischenhändler abgewickelt wird.

Strike Global ist traditionellen Fintech-Apps nicht allzu unähnlich, nutzt aber das Lightning Network für die Abwicklung. Dies bedeutet, dass Zahlungen im Wesentlichen sofort und zu einem Bruchteil der Kosten von traditionellen Zahlungsschienen erfolgen können.

Strike Global hat zwei Arten von Überweisungen, je nach Standort des Empfängers. Für Länder mit einem entwickelten Bankensystem ermöglicht Strike den Nutzern, Zahlungen zu senden, ohne selbst über Bitcoin Pro zu gehen. Strike zieht automatisch Geld vom Bankkonto des Benutzers ab, tauscht es in BTC um und tauscht es dann zurück in die Fiat-Währung und das Bankensystem des Empfängers.

Das System nutzt größtenteils die bestehende Bitcoin-Börseninfrastruktur, die bereits viel billigere und einfachere Überweisungen ermöglicht, wenn die Benutzer bereit sind, sie manuell zu durchlaufen. Da nationale Börsen in der Regel in das lokale Bankensystem integriert sind, ermöglicht die Verwendung von Bitcoin oder anderen Kryptowährungen viel günstigere Umrechnungskurse im Vergleich zum grenzüberschreitenden Bankverkehr.

Strike vereinfacht viele der Austauschprozesse

Für Länder ohne entwickelte Bankensysteme ermöglicht Strike den Benutzern, ihr Geld entweder in Bitcoin oder Tether (USDT) zu halten. Die Kryptowährung kann dann über Ad-hoc-Lösungen wie Bitcoin-ATMs, LocalBitcoins und andere in lokales Bargeld oder Fiat umgetauscht werden. Strike vereinfacht viele der Austauschprozesse im Backend, um die Erfahrung ähnlich wie bei anderen Fintech-Apps zu machen.

Das Startup ist eine Partnerschaft mit Bittrex eingegangen, um die Nutzer der Börse auf Strike und das Lightning Network zu bringen. Im ersten Quartal 2021 erwartet es den Abschluss privater und öffentlicher Betatests sowie die Ausgabe von Strike Visa-Karten in den USA. Im zweiten Quartal erwartet es die Einführung von Karten in der Europäischen Union und im Vereinigten Königreich.

Der Rollout kommt als Unternehmen beginnen zunehmende Annahme von neueren Bitcoin-Technologien. Kraken hat versprochen, eine Lightning-Integration im Jahr 2021 einzuführen, während Binance kürzlich SegWit-Adressen-Unterstützung für Bitcoin hinzugefügt hat.

 

Value of one ton of gold reaches the record of 2,000 Bitcoins for the first time

Bitcoin’s relationship with gold is one of the key points for the consistency of the largest cryptomeda.

The Bitcoin community on Twitter is celebrating this Tuesday, January 5th, a new milestone for cryptomeda: for the first time, a ton of gold has reached the mark of only 2,000 BTC.

The first Twitter profile to spread the new milestone was @VersusBTC, which compares the Bitcoin and gold markets. The profile posted:

This is not the first Bitcoin milestone noted during the brief 2021 rally, which took the largest cryptomoeda from $29,000 to $34,000.

On January 2nd, the market value of Bitcoin reached 5% of the capitalization of Gold for the first time in history, as it also posted the Twitter profile:

The correction of Bitcoin in the days after January 2nd caused the percentage of cryptomeda capitalization to fall again below 5%. On Tuesday, BTC’s capitalization represents on average 4.79% of gold.

At the moment, gold is quoted at about US$ 1,264, while Bitcoin has a day of recovery, beating the US$ 33,125 in the early afternoon of today, time of Brasilia (BRT), according to data from Cointelegraph Markets.

The correlation between Bitcoin and gold has been closely followed by the cryptomorph markets, as gold reserve properties are often compared to Bitcoin, for many a kind of „digital gold“.

Throughout 2020, the two assets maintained some degree of correlation and were pointed out by experts as two assets of economic protection during the global economic crisis. The correlation would only be broken with the exponential Bitcoin rally as of September last year.

As reported by Cointelegraph Brasil this Tuesday, the relationship between gold and Bitcoin is also fundamental for sustaining Bitcoin’s rise, as JPMorgan researchers pointed out. In a study revealed by Bloomberg, they defended:

„The market capitalization of Bitcoin of about US$ 575 billion would have to increase 4.6 times – based on a theoretical price of US$ 146,000 – to correspond to the total private sector investment in gold through exchange-traded funds or bars and currencies,“ wrote strategists led by Nikolaos Panigirtzoglou in an article. But this perspective depends on Bitcoin converging with gold volatility to encourage more institutional investment, a process that will take some time, they argued.

Paul Tudor Jones positief over Bitcoin, vergelijkt het met ‚Internet-aandelen in 1999‘.

De Amerikaanse miljardair hedge fund manager, Paul Tudor Jones, deed bullish statements over Bitcoin en vergeleek Bitcoin en andere cryptocurrency’s met edele en industriële metalen. In een interview met Julia La Roche van Yahoo Finance verwachtte Paul Tudor Jones dat Bitcoin over 20 jaar „aanzienlijk hoger“ zou zijn en dat Bitcoin de „verkeerde marktkapitalisatie“ had.

In een wereld waar je $90 biljoen aan equity market cap hebt en God weet hoeveel biljoenen aan fiatvaluta, etcetera… het is de verkeerde marktcap, bijvoorbeeld, ten opzichte van goud, dat is $8 of $9 biljoen.

Ik ga ervan uit dat het de verkeerde prijs is voor de mogelijkheden die het heeft. En ik ga ervan uit dat het pad naar het noorden is vanaf hier.

Door te stellen dat de crypto ruimte „veel zal lijken op het metalen complex“ impliceerde Jones dat Bitcoin, die de eerste corona Millionaire was en ook digitaal schaars was, als een edelmetaal was, zoals goud. Aan de andere kant geloofde Jones dat andere cryptokringen als „koper, platina en palladium“ konden zijn.

Bitcoin is „de eerste crypto, eerste beweger in een wereld die zo gecomprimeerd is. Het heeft die historische integriteit binnen digitale valuta die het altijd zal hebben… En opnieuw, vanwege zijn eindige voorraad, zou dat de kostbare crypto kunnen zijn.“

Dit zou niet de eerste keer zijn dat Bitcoin wordt vergeleken met het edelmetaal, omdat maximalisten in het crypto-ecosysteem BTC in het verleden naar digitaal goud hebben verwezen. Bitcoin was op het moment van schrijven ongeveer $18.913,54 waard en is de laatste 24 uur met 3,1% gedaald.

Maar daarnaast zei Jones dat Bitcoin hem in 1999, tijdens de ontluikende fase van het internet, herinnerde aan de internetvoorraden:

Niemand wist het te waarderen vanwege de wereld van de mogelijkheden die in het verschiet lagen.

Jones dacht ook dat op de lange termijn slechts enkele projecten waarschijnlijk zullen overleven vanuit de crypto-ruimte. Hij voorspelde echter dat digitale valuta de komende twee decennia op grote schaal zouden kunnen worden ingevoerd en dat „contant geld misschien weg is“. Jones was ook zeker over de digitalisering van geld in de toekomst, vooral omdat verschillende centrale banken de laatste tijd hun eigen CBDC projecten hebben aangekondigd.

Grayscale digs up anti-gold advertising campaign again

Grayscale digs up Bitcoin advertising campaign again

Just in time for Bitcoin’s all-time high, asset manager Grayscale launches its „Drop Gold“ advertising campaign. Originally, Drop Gold was launched in May 2019. At that time, the campaign met with rather reserved reactions within the crypto community.

On 1 December, Grayscale CEO Barry Silbert commented on the newly launched advertising campaign via Twitter. The 30-second ad is to be placed nationwide, both online and Bitcoin Rush review on several well-known television channels. Drop Gold encourages investors to sell their gold and invest in crypto-currencies such as Bitcoin instead:

Digital currencies like Bitcoin are the future. They are safe, limitless and, unlike gold, actually useful.

Accordingly, precious metals like gold would only „burden“ the wallet of any investor. Moreover, gold is an old-fashioned financial product that would pull down any wallet. In parallel to these statements, Bitcoin’s transaction speed, efficiency and security are stressed. The aim of the campaign is to encourage investors to invest in Grayscale’s Bitcoin Investment Trust (BIT).

Drop Gold is not Grayscale’s first Bitcoin advertising campaign

On 7 August Barry announced another campaign. This became the largest Bitcoin advertising campaign ever and was broadcast in the USA on TV channels such as FOX, CNBC. However, many members of the crypto-community were disappointed by the advertising campaign due to ambiguous messages. In addition, technical problems kept cropping up. One Twitter user commented on this as follows:

Seriously, is this the best you can do? The music overlays the words and most of the sound is not audible. I appreciate Grayscale’s efforts, but do better next time. Your „Drop Gold“ campaign was much better.

When Grayscale Drop Gold campaign started in 2019, the Bitcoin price was around $5,400. However, a lot has changed since then. A year and a half later, the exchange rate has almost quadrupled and many Bitcoin sizes give very optimistic forecasts in this regard time and again. Citigroup Managing Director Tom Fitzpatrick, who recently predicted a Bitcoin exchange rate of 318,000 for next year, is one such example.

In view of these conditions, the Drop Gold campaign could now help to make Bitcoin appealing to the general public. In addition, gold recently recorded its worst month since 2016.

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)
– Ray Dalio (@RayDalio) November 17, 2020

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.

The price of Bitcoin will reach $65,000, says Mike Novogratz

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
– Zac Prince (@BlockFiZac) November 17, 2020

They will evaluate the current Bitcoin bull market in a virtual meeting

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.

Le réseau Bitcoin n’est pas prêt pour l’effet PayPal

Prix du bitcoin

Le fournisseur mondial de paiement en ligne PayPal a annoncé en début de semaine qu’il permettrait à ses clients d’acheter et de vendre des Bitcoin Machine et d’autres cryptocurrences. Cette nouvelle a été accueillie avec un cœur ouvert car elle promet une adoption massive de Bitcoin. Suite à cette nouvelle, le prix du bitcoin a atteint son plus haut niveau en deux ans.

PayPal compte près de 350 millions d’utilisateurs et environ 26 millions de vendeurs, alors que Bitcoin compte moins de 190 millions d’utilisateurs. Le nombre élevé de PayPal est sans aucun doute une tendance haussière pour Bitcoin puisqu’il expose la cryptocouronne aux utilisateurs traditionnels.

Cependant, pour commencer, les utilisateurs de PayPal ne peuvent pas transférer ou envoyer des Bitcoin vers un autre compte, que ce soit vers un autre utilisateur PayPal ou vers un portefeuille externe.

Cela a suscité des avis différents de la part des experts du secteur. Alors que certains pensent que c’est le premier pas vers l’adoption massive, d’autres pensent que la restriction enlève la liberté de l’argent aux utilisateurs.

Mais Danny Scott, PDG de CoinCorner, partage une opinion différente. Il pense que la restriction pourrait être une bonne chose car le réseau Bitcoin n’est pas encore prêt pour cela, du moins pas dans un avenir proche.

„PayPal ne peut pas activer la fonctionnalité d’envoi/réception de Bitcoin de sitôt (des années ?). L’infrastructure n’est pas prête, Bitcoin n’est pas prêt pour cette échelle du point de vue transactionnel“, a tweeté Scott.

Avec moins de 200 millions d’utilisateurs, les transactions sont lentes et coûteuses sur le réseau Bitcoin, surtout pendant les périodes de hausse des prix.

Selon le PDG de CoinCorner, la grande exposition pour Bitcoin déclenchée par la dernière initiative de PayPal ne ferait qu’ajouter aux problèmes sous-jacents des frais/retards de bitcoin si la société avait permis les transactions sur la chaîne de bitcoin.

En d’autres termes, si les 350 millions d’utilisateurs de PayPal sont autorisés à transférer ou à envoyer des bitcoins, cela ne ferait que rendre la transaction de Bitcoin plus lente et plus coûteuse.

Bien que PayPal n’offre pas actuellement la fonction d’envoi ou de réception de cryptocurrences, Scott pense que si la société active cette fonction à court terme, ce serait par ignorance ou par une attaque directe sur le réseau Bitcoin.

Mais il existe des solutions à ce problème, comme le réseau Bitcoin Lightning Network qui a été conçu pour échelonner les transactions BTC et réduire les frais. La foudre est en train de devenir une exigence, a ajouté M. Scott.

New leader in crypto derivatives trading – Binance overtakes Huobi and OKEx

The trading volume for crypto derivatives is declining overall, which has favored a change in the top position.

Binance has overtaken Huobi and OKEx, making it the market-leading crypto exchange in terms of trading volume for crypto derivatives. The overtaking maneuver succeeded in September with $ 164.8 billion in trading volume, according to data from CryptoCompare.

When evaluating the trading volume for crypto derivatives, the market researchers found that Binance recorded almost $ 8 billion more in volume than the competition in the past month

While Huobi is worth 156.3 billion US dollars, OKEx comes to 155.7 billion US dollars. BitMEX is far behind in fourth place at $ 56.4 billion.

The new data suggests BitMEX was already in trouble before the trading platform’s senior management was indicted by American regulators . Subsequently, the crypto exchange lost 30.7% of the market share in one fell swoop than ever before.

Huobi, OKEx and Binance account for just under 90% of the trading volume for crypto derivatives in September alone, although the trading volume fell by 17.5% compared to the previous month and has slipped to a total value of 634.9 billion US dollars.

As CryptoCompare reports, only the FTX recorded a gain, with an increase of 12% in September to a volume of 23.89 billion US dollars

In addition, the new numbers reveal that the daily volume for crypto derivatives trading hit a year-to-date high on September 3, with $ 27.6 billion in turnover on that day. The 2020 high was hit on July 27th and stood at $ 27.1 billion.

The volume for options on the regulated trading platform CME, which is an indicator of the interest of institutional investors, increased by 79.4% from August to September, which corresponds to a monthly volume of 4,872 traded contracts. As CryptoCompare indicates, the volume of futures for Bitcoin ( BTC ) at the CME has remained almost the same, with a minimal 1% decline.

Le PDG de Kucoin déclare que les suspects de piratage Exchange ont été trouvés, 204 millions de dollars récupérés

Selon le PDG de la bourse de Kucoin, Johnny Lyu, la plate-forme de négociation a récupéré 204 millions de dollars d’actifs cryptographiques depuis le 1er octobre.

Le 25 septembre 2020, la communauté crypto a découvert que l’échange Kucoin avait été piraté pour un grand nombre d’actifs

Selon les estimations , 1008 BTC ont été volés, ainsi que 14713 BSV , 26733 LTC , 9588383 XLM , Omni et EOS based tether ( USDT ) d’une valeur de 14 millions de dollars, 153 millions de dollars d’éther et d’ERC20, et plus de 18 millions de XRP . Après le piratage, Kucoin a révélé qu’il travaillait avec les forces de l’ordre et un certain nombre de projets de blockchain pour remédier à la situation.

Après qu’un grand nombre de projets de jetons ont révélé avoir récupéré plus de 130 millions de dollars de la brèche de Kucoin, les développeurs de projets ont été condamnés pour centralisation . En outre, la société d’analyse de chaînes de blocs Elliptic a publié un rapport selon lequel le pirate informatique a dépensé plus de 17 millions de dollars sur les plates-formes d’échange décentralisées (dex). Elliptic a noté que tous les swaps des hackers sur Tokenlon, Uniswap et le réseau Kyber peuvent toujours être tracés. Le 3 octobre 2020, le PDG de Kucoin Exchange, Johnny Lyu, a informé le public de l’incident de sécurité.

„Une mise à jour rapide depuis ma dernière diffusion en direct le 30 septembre“, a tweeté Lyu . «Après une enquête approfondie, nous avons trouvé les suspects de l’incident de sécurité de Kucoin avec des preuves substantielles à portée de main. Les responsables de l’application des lois et la police sont officiellement impliqués pour prendre des mesures. Grâce au grand soutien de nos partenaires du secteur, 64 millions de dollars supplémentaires d’actifs sont désormais hors de contrôle des adresses suspectes, ce qui porte la valeur totale à 204 millions de dollars depuis le 1er octobre. „

Le PDG de Kucoin a ajouté:

Kucoin revient à toutes ses fonctionnalités. Mon équipe et moi continuerons de faire de notre mieux pour compenser l’impact de l’incident. À partir de maintenant, un total de 31 jetons ont été ouverts [pour] les dépôts [et] les services de retrait, et d’autres jetons, notamment BTC , ETH et USDT , suivront.
