Financial markets pull crypto market down, Bitcoin goes sideways

The strong gains in US government bonds are exerting pressure on the crypto market via detours.

The crypto market is facing further selling pressure after the yield on 10-year US government bonds recently climbed to a multi-month high .

The latter is a disadvantage for high-risk investment products such as cryptocurrencies

As the data from Cointelegraph Markets and TradingView show, Bitcoin ( BTC ) slipped to an interim low of 44,710 US dollars on February 25, before new buying interest in the market-leading cryptocurrency rose again above 46,500 US dollars, where the price is currently leveling off . The analysts believe, however, that it takes a jump above the $ 50,000 mark for the upward trend to continue, otherwise further losses threaten.

Although well-known companies such as MicroStrategy, Tesla and MassMutual have invested heavily in recent months, most large companies do not yet dare to invest in Bitcoin. Damien Vanderwilt, the co-president of Galaxy Digital suggests that there are two main reasons for this.

Nonetheless, the increased interest of institutional investors is one of the mainsprings for the soaring of the crypto industry in the year 2021. However, their influence could possibly be overrated, because small and large stablecoin investors in particular have the most purchasing power .

Government bonds are depressing the crypto market

The yield on 10-year US Treasuries climbed to 1.52% on February 25, the highest level in a year.

As Chad Steinglass, Head of Trading at CrossTower, explains, this has created selling pressure that „temporarily pushed the price difference of the Grayscale Bitcoin Mutual Fund (GBTC) into minus 6%, ultimately closing it at -2%“ . Clear evidence that government bonds have had an indirect impact on the crypto market by triggering a cascade of increasing.

Due to the massive increase in returns, the stock market initially came under pressure, because traders suddenly needed liquidity and therefore liquidated their positions in order to get back to money quickly.

Steinglass explains:

“I interpret the downturn in the price differential of the GBTC as a sign that private investors are selling in order to create liquidity. Another reason could be that other large mutual funds like ARKW are experiencing capital outflows, which is why they are selling their shares in GBTC. „

Only Cardano wins

However, US 10-year Treasury yields fell 0.0582 basis points on February 26, a 3.82% decline from the previous day. This enabled the stock market to recover slightly, with the major stock indices recently sending mixed signals.

At the time of going to press, the NASDAQ was up 0.56%, which meant that the 3.5% loss from the previous day could be retracted somewhat. The S&P 500 and the Dow Jones, on the other hand, have to come to terms with further losses of 0.48% and 1.51%.

Similarly, the majority of the crypto market also lost on Friday. The only notable exception is the Cardano ( ADA ) blockchain project, which jumped to a new record high of 1.29 US dollars and became the third largest cryptocurrency of all. The trigger is probably the hype about a major upgrade that is due to take place on March 1st.

Prawnicy ostrzegają, że tweety Bitcoin Elona Muska mogą przyciągnąć gniew SEC

Według prawników szalejąca aktywność Elona Muska na Twitterze może doprowadzić go do gorącej wody w SEC.

Doradcy prawni ostrzegli, że dyrektor generalny Tesli, Elon Musk, może zostać zbadany przez amerykańską Komisję Bezpieczeństwa i Giełd w związku z jego działalnością w mediach społecznościowych i publicznymi wypowiedziami na temat Bitcoina.

W poniedziałek 8 lutego Tesla ogłosił w raporcie SEC, że kupił bitcoiny o wartości 1,5 miliarda dolarów i wkrótce zacznie akceptować płatności BTC. Wkrótce ceny aktywów poszybowały w górę do nowego rekordowego poziomu nieco ponad 48 000 USD.

Partner w Linklaters i były szef oddziału wydziału egzekwowania SEC, Doug Davison, powiedział brytyjskiej gazecie Telegraph :

„Nie byłoby zaskoczeniem – biorąc pod uwagę skupienie się na tweetach dyrektora naczelnego, cenach Bitcoin Profit i ostatnich dramatycznych ruchach rynkowych – gdyby SEC zadawała pytania dotyczące faktów i okoliczności tutaj”,

Były wiceprezes Europejskiego Banku Centralnego, Vitor Constâncio, powtórzył zdanie, stwierdzając, że „SEC się tym zajmie”,

SEC i Commodity Futures Trading Commission mają możliwość prowadzenia dochodzeń w przypadku podejrzenia manipulacji na rynku

Musk wielokrotnie wypowiadał się na Twitterze o Bitcoin i DOGE, co przyczyniło się do wzrostu aktywności Bitcoin na platformie mediów społecznościowych do najwyższego poziomu.

Bitcoin wzrósł o 20% pod koniec stycznia po tym, jak Musk dodał #Bitcoin do swojego biografii na Twitterze i napisał na Twitterze „Z perspektywy czasu to było nieuniknione”, a pod koniec grudnia opublikował wyraźny mem sugerujący, że był mocno kuszony, aby kupić Bitcoin .

Nie ma wątpliwości, że publiczny wypad Tesli na Bitcoin przyczynił się do tego ostatniego wzrostu cen, a wpływowe tweety Muska na temat kryptowalut do 46,5 miliona obserwujących również mogą poruszać rynki.

Obecnie nadal szylinguje Dogecoina tym ostatnim tweetem 10 lutego, w którym stwierdza, że ​​kupuje aktywa. Liczba DOGE wzrosła o 13% po tym konkretnym tweecie kilka godzin temu.

Ethereum’s DeFi Madness – $ 21 Billion, a War Chest that just keeps getting bigger!

A good start to the year for DeFi – We have become too accustomed to seeing Bitcoin being in the headlines of crypto news for a long time. DeFi is not left out, however. Eh yes ! After a crazy year 2020, she has just broken a new record.

$ 21 billion, just that!

It’s been almost a month since the bull run started , with Bitcoin’s previous ATH passing on December 16 .

Much of the altcoins have since followed the trend and obviously Ethereum Code hasn’t been left behind. Indeed, projects, such as Aave, Loopring or even Uniswap, have seen the price of their token increase .

Having emerged in 2019, it was not until 2020 to see the DeFi ecosystem explode

The enthusiasm was general, both on the side of the projects that have multiplied, and the funds involved.

At the same time, the total value involved in DeFi has just broken a new record , reaching $ 21.9 billion . This equates to an increase of 3,500% over the past year.

However, it should be noted that this increase is mainly due to the rise in prices. Indeed, when we look at the funds involved in ETH or BTC, the latter have rather tended to decline.

Dominance of Bitcoin (BTC) – When will the relief of leadership be?

The price of Bitcoin (BTC) remains the leader among top-ranking cryptocurrencies in the short term, but beware, dominance comes under major technical resistance.

Bitcoin (BTC) in a speculative bubble?

The price of Bitcoin has progressed vertically since the technical breakout of old historical records, the famous $ 19,700 (€ 16,500) in December 2017. This technical resistance was overwhelmed 3 years later, triggering further acceleration of $ 8,000, relegating early supports to a dangerous distance for managing trading risk , essentially over the short-term time horizon.

The rout of the XRP token along with the legal dispute between the SEC and Ripple likely caused capital to move into BTC, thus assuming a “safe haven” role, but only within the crypto world. I believe the upside for a week has a speculative mini-bubble nature , beware of retracement risk as the market year ends tomorrow.

I invite you to watch my last video on this topic of Bitcoin’s current bullish excess:

Bitcoin Dominance Reaches Major Resistance

Without playing ominous birds, Bitcoin’s dominance is unlikely to reach 95% again, as the world before was a world without (or almost) altcoins. If we practice the technical analysis of the financial markets on the BTC dominance, a clear major resistance is present at 73%, I think that this barrier will not be crossed by the BTC, except for exceptional fact (for example, if the SEC attacks other major tokens).

The upcoming test of these 73% should cause a decline in dominance, this is naturally a personal opinion, in fine, only the proven facts will count.

Il governo „ permetterà “ a Bitcoin di andare a Wall St.?

La grande preoccupazione tra i bitcoin perma-bear è la minaccia del governo di „renderlo illegale“ …

L’ultimo spauracchio su questo fronte non è altro che il segretario al Tesoro degli Stati Uniti Steve Mnuchin. Circolano voci che stia prendendo in considerazione la messa al bando dei „portafogli di auto-custodia“ , confiscando in effetti le chiavi private delle criptovalute di tutti.

In un thread su Twitter, l’amministratore delegato [di Coinbase Brian Armstrong] ha detto che la sua azienda „ha sentito voci“ sui piani del Segretario al Tesoro degli Stati Uniti Steven Mnuchin di introdurre nuove regole per i „portafogli di auto-custodia“ entro la fine del suo mandato.

La natura aperta delle criptovalute consente a chiunque di creare un portafoglio privato scaricando software di terze parti sui propri computer / smartphone o tramite dispositivi hardware che memorizzano risorse digitali. Questi tipi di soluzioni di auto-custodia sono più economici dei servizi finanziari tradizionali e garantiscono la privacy .

Quelle voci sono apparentemente valide dal momento che Mnuchin ha ricevuto una lettera da quattro membri del Congresso che lo imploravano di non fare una cosa così monumentalmente stupida.

Davidson et.al. rendere il punto molto saliente che una mossa come questa sarebbe paralizzante per la fiorente criptovaluta, il mondo della finanza decentralizzata

È una lettera straordinariamente ben scritta che mostra un livello di comprensione della crittografia che semplicemente non ci si aspetterebbe da un membro del Congresso. Ma, ehi, prenderò la piacevole sorpresa.

Ora, per lo stesso motivo, Davidson sta parlando con uno degli oligarchi supremi che detiene uno degli uffici più potenti al mondo. Mnuchin, come il resto dei governatori mondiali, vede la minaccia per le valute emesse dalla banca centrale e non ama la concorrenza.

Così tanti che hanno sostenuto che Bitcoin Revolution alla fine sarebbe stato „ semplicemente reso illegale “ lo hanno fatto, nella migliore delle ipotesi, per motivi secondari, ignorando la praticità di come funziona Internet, ecc.

Ho già affrontato questi argomenti in passato, vedi Bitcoin vs. The Man pubblicato ad agosto

Con Stock to Flow in aumento, il che significa che il tasso di inflazione sta diminuendo mentre il mucchio totale accumulato è in aumento, la domanda marginale può facilmente spingere i prezzi a livelli che fanno arrossire anche il toro più ardente del bitcoin.

I governi sono, come ho detto prima, in un Catch-22. Se vietano la domanda di bitcoin diventa clandestina, le persone semplicemente lo comprano e lo detengono. Lo acquisiscono come possono e arrivano nuove tecnologie (scambi decentralizzati) per sostituire quelle attuali (Coinbase).

Se non lo vietano, consentono la crescita della domanda come riserva di valore e risorsa finanziaria. Esiste in un’area grigia dove puoi usarlo ma davvero non vuoi. Ciò consente a un’altra valvola di sfogo per il capitale di uscire dal morente sistema basato sul debito e attendere che la tempesta passi.

Ad ogni modo, vincono bitcoin e criptovalute.

La lettera dei Quattro Davidson riconosce questa comprensione di base. Cercare di rendere illegale il possesso delle tue chiavi private per le tue criptovalute allontanerà semplicemente il capitale dagli Stati Uniti

China organises a massive airdrop of the digital yuan in a pilot city

In China, the digital yuan is already available in some pilot cities, selected to prepare the national deployment. Over the weekend, 3 million dollars in digital yuan will be distributed to the inhabitants of the city of Suzhou via a draw. The launch is approaching?

 

China is organising a massive airdrop of the digital yuan in a pilot city.

Digital yuan on trial

In China, the government of the city of Suzhou is distributing over the weekend 20 million yuan in digital form, the equivalent of 3 million dollars. The city’s 10.7 million inhabitants can sign up for this airdrop and 100,000 lucky people will each receive 200 digital yuan, or 30 dollars.

 

To ensure that the experiment is successful, the selected residents will be able to spend their digital yuans on the Internet during „Double 12“, a local version of Black Friday. Online, the digital yuan can be used for purchases on JD.com, the 2nd largest e-commerce platform in China.

 

At the same time, a handful of people will have the opportunity to spend their money in shops around the city to try out the offline payment function of the digital wallet.

 

This event is being organised in collaboration with a local bank, which will provide its mobile application dedicated to the digital yuan.

 

Apart from the fact that this is a trial for the digital yuan, a press release from the city of Suzhou on the subject explains :

 

„This event is also an innovative approach led by the city of Suzhou as part of the standardisation of epidemic prevention and control to stimulate consumption and domestic demand. It is of significant importance in promoting quality development of the local economy. »

National deployment is getting closer

Such free distribution of the digital yuan is proving to be a relatively effective strategy for getting people used to the digital version of the yuan. Moreover, the integration of the digital yuan within the ecosystem of local giants such as JD, Alibaba or Tencent, gives it unprecedented visibility.

 

Other industries such as the telephone industry are working on solutions for the digital yuan. This is notably the case of Huawei, the smartphone manufacturer which revealed last October that its Mate 40 series models will include a hardware portfolio for the digital yuan.

 

Note that this is not the first full-scale test for the digital yuan. Last November, 50,000 inhabitants of the city of Shenzhen shared the equivalent of 1.5 million dollars in digital yuan. Some of the winners of this first airdrop hadn’t found the digital yuan particularly interesting compared to other means of payment already in existence, while designating it as less convenient.

 

The introduction of the digital yuan on the whole territory is getting closer, notwithstanding those who gave unfavourable criticisms against it …

5 skäl till Bitcoins prishöjning till nya 15-månaders höga

Bitcoins pris ökade med totalt 30% under oktober månad hittills och det steg till en 15-månaders högsta. Här är 5 möjliga skäl till det.

I början av oktober var Bitcoins pris särskilt obeslutsamt och handlade något över 10 000 dollar, vilket fick många att tro att den ofyllda CME-klyftan på 9 600 dollar snart skulle stängas.

Snabbspolning fram till nuvarande datum, 27 oktober, handlas BTC till 13 400 $, efter att ha just markerat en ny höjdpunkt för 2020. Kryptovalutan tillförde cirka 3000 dollar till sitt värde, vilket motsvarar en ökning med cirka 30%.

Med detta sagt var denna månad också ganska händelserik. Många saker hände, och låt oss som sådan titta på fem möjliga orsaker som kunde ha lett till denna betydande prishöjning.

PayPal tillkännager stöd för Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Litecoin och Ethereum

Utan tvekan var den viktigaste nyheten som kom ut denna månad PayPal som tillkännagav stöd för kryptovalutor.

PayPal är nu världens största betalningsbehandlare online. Data från Statista visar att företaget för andra kvartalet 2020 har bearbetat över 221 miljarder dollar. Dessutom har företaget ett nätverk med över 26 miljoner leverantörer, och det planerar att göra det möjligt för användare att spendera sin BTC alls, med början i början av 2021.

Dessutom är det värt att notera att PayPal är en allmänt accepterad betalningsmetod, och de flesta bankerna tillåter överföringar från och till plattformen. Tvärtom stöder inte många banker Bitcoin-transaktioner, vilket innebär att de antingen skulle behöva ompröva sin policy eller så skulle de behöva tappa PayPal som kund helt och hållet.

För närvarande är det oklart hur detta kommer att lösas, men det är spännande att se hur situationen utvecklas. Om en sak är säker skulle det dock sätta Bitcoin och andra kryptor i spetsen för en viktig diskussion.

Stora banker börjar ändra sin inställning till Bitcoin

Det finns inget tydligare exempel här än JP Morgan – en av världens största multinationella investeringsbanker.

Förhållandet mellan bankens VD, Jamie Dimon, och Bitcoin är värt att följa. År 2017 sa den högt rankade verkställande direktören att BTC är rädd och att om han såg någon av sina handlare hantera det, skulle han ”sparka dem på en sekund.”

Tja, spola fram ett par år, och nu publicerar banken hausseartade förutsägelser på samma kryptovaluta som Dimon märkte ett bedrägeri.

För bara några dagar sedan sa JP Morgan att även en blygsam byte av kapital från guld till Bitcoin kunde se priset trippel.

Antalet börsnoterade företag som köper Bitcoin ökar

Kanske som en direkt följd av ovanstående kan vi redan se ett ökat engagemang från börsnoterade företag.

Den största köparen som satte Bitcoin på balansräkningen blev MicroStrategy, med sin massiva investering på 425 miljoner dollar. Dess VD, Micael Saylor, har varit särskilt högljudd om BTC: s meriter.

Jack Dorsey’s Square hoppade också på vagnen och köpte $ 50 miljoner dollar i Bitcoin tidigare denna månad.

Nedan finns en lista över alla börsnoterade företag och deras innehav i BTC.

Börsnoterade företag som sätter BTC i balansräkningen är en stor affär för den växande kryptovalutan, och branschexperter säger att denna effekt bara kommer att snöboll.

Singapores största bank lanserar enligt uppgift en Bitcoin-börs

Som CryptoPotato rapporterade just idag har DBS Bank, ett singaporianskt multinationellt bank- och finansserviceföretag och stadens största bank, enligt uppgift lanserat en börs som erbjuder fiat-till-kryptokurrency-handelspar.

Påstås att den nya börsen skulle stödja de “bästa digitala valutorna i omlopp”, nämligen Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum och Ripples XRP. Handlare skulle kunna byta dem mot SGD, HKD, JPY och USD.

Mer intressant skulle utbytet förmodligen endast acceptera finansinstitut och professionella marknadsskapare, som dess användare. Platsen skulle regleras av Monetary Authority of Singapore, som också är dess de facto centralbank.

Det behöver inte sägas att ett centralbanksstött och reglerat börs riktat till institutionella investerare i teorin skulle underlätta större aktörers deltagande i fältet.

Osäkerhet kring de kommande presidentvalen 2020 i USA

Utan tvekan är ett av de viktigaste ögonblicken för de globala makroekonomiska utsikterna de kommande presidentvalen i USA, som kommer att äga rum den 3 november.

CryptoPotato gjorde en undersökning, och det visade sig att valet är den största oro för Bitcoin-investerare 2020.

Det är kanske ingen överraskning att miljardären Paul Tudor Jones III kom med ett uttalande och sa att han gillar „Bitcoin ännu mer nu än då [när han köpte BTC i maj].“ Han sa också att det kommer att bli den bästa inflationen.

Krótkoterminowa analiza cen Bitcoin

Zastrzeżenie: ustalenia zawarte w poniższym artykule są wyłączną opinią autora i nie powinny być traktowane jako porada inwestycyjna

Bitcoin wzrósł o 8% w ciągu ostatnich 48 godzin, co nie jest rzadkością w przypadku niestabilnych aktywów, takich jak Immediate Edge. Jednak wzrost obejmował 2-3% świec z oddzielającą je konsolidacją.

W czasie prasy Bitcoin nadal znajdował się we wspomnianej konsolidacji, a jego wykresy wskazują na ruch w górę w krótkim okresie

Załączony jednogodzinny wykres dla Bitcoin przedstawiał tworzenie się byczego proporzeca, który wskazywał na cel, który oddalił się o 3,40%. Jednak wraz z konsolidacją ceny kryptowaluty i podsycaniem zamieszania i chaosu, cena Bitcoina może ulec zmianie.

Chociaż z natury był byczy, istniała możliwość przejęcia kontroli przez niedźwiedzie, co doprowadziło do zrzutu i powstania wzoru Bart. Ten wzorzec Bart zagroziłby przyszłym występom i zaszkodziłby również przeszłym wzrostom.

Oprócz pozycji Barta zagrażającej wydajności cenowej, wydawało się, że istnieje fałszerstwo, które może być tak samo szkodliwe jak wzór Barta.

W związku z tym należy zachować ostrożność przed wejściem na pozycję długą i zastosować odpowiedni stop-loss

Długa pozycja z wejściem po cenie prasowej [11 354 USD] i stop-loss na poziomie 11 266 USD [u podstawy proporzeca] wystarczyłaby, aby zaabsorbować wszelkie krótkoterminowe wahania.

Słupek proporczyka wskazywał, że teoretyczny poziom zysku wynosi 11 753 USD [wzrost o 3,74% w stosunku do cen prasowych]. Ponieważ jest to scenariusz „ make or break “, należy również zadbać o wady.

W związku z tym, jeśli głowa ceny spadnie, tworząc formację Bart, istnieją dwa ważne poziomy wsparcia, jak pokazano na powyższym wykresie. Pierwsza strefa waha się od 11 104 do 11014 USD. I choć mało prawdopodobne, druga strefa waha się od 10945 do 10832 USD.

W chwili pisania tego tekstu cena już potwierdziła przełom na plus. Dlatego tęsknota za [11 416 $, natychmiastowy opór] również przyniosłaby podobne zyski.

BTG Pactual and Exam ‚hug‘ Bitcoin and cryptomoedas and launch exclusive portal to talk about ‚Future of Money

Latin America’s largest investment bank to launch news portal, research and education center focused on Bitcoin, cryptoactives and digital economy

BTG Pactual and Exam ‚hug‘ Bitcoin and cryptomoedas and launch exclusive portal to talk about ‚Future of Money
News

BTG Pactual, one of the largest investment banks in Latin America, „entered head-on“ into the universe of Crypto Engine and cryptomoedas.

Through Exame magazine, the bank will launch a set of initiatives called „Future of Money“ that intends, among other things, to address issues such as BTC, cryptoactives, Tokens, DeFi, digital payments, CBDCs and so on.

The initiative of BTG will be executed through the magazine Exame, one of the main communication vehicles in Brazil and which was acquired by BTG at the end of 2019, for about R$ 72.5 million.

BTG Pactual and Mercado Bitcoin pay token income from real estate investments and precatórios

Among BTG’s proposals for „Future of Money“ is a market news and analysis portal, a podcast on the subject, an educational arm called Exame Academy and a research and analysis portal entitled „Exame Research“.

For the project, Exame has hired several professionals, among them, Nicholas Sacchi, who will be responsible for the contents and production related to cryptomoedas.

Sacchi, who is an economist, has worked in investment banks, brokerage houses, cryptomoedas exchanges and investment analysis houses.
Event

Some BTG initiatives related to „Future of Money“ have already been launched, the Bank, together with the magazine, announced an event, online and free to mark the beginning of the proposal.

„To launch this new vehicle, our strategy was to organize the largest online event on the future of money in Latin America,“ highlighted Exame.

Mega American investor Bill Ackman participates in Live of BTG Pactual with André Esteves

Also according to Exame, the event will bring names like Gustavo Franco, Bruno Diniz, Renato Opice Blum, Gavin Littlejohn, Fernando Ribeiro, Paula Paschoal, Thamilla Talarico, Tatiana Revoredo, Frederico Pompeu, Marcelo Sampaio, Fabio L Marras, Marcelo Salhab Brogliato, among others.

„The idea will be, over eight weeks, to address the most diverse topics related to the future of money, such as fintechs, PIX, LGPD, open banking, cryptoactives, blockchain, private currencies, CBDCs and much more,“ concluded the magazine.

Those interested can subscribe via the link.
Tokenization of assets by BTG

This is not BTG’s first initiative in the cryptoactive market.

In the middle of this year, the Bank announced the official launch of the ReitBZ (RBZ), BTG’s first token that was issued at Tezos blockchain.

Although the first ReitBZ issues were made in Ethereum, since last year the Bank had already announced a possible migration to Tezos.

„BTG Pactual is a pioneer in implementing blockchain solutions for tokenization of managed assets,“ said Hubertus Thonhauser, chairman of the Tezos Foundation.

The move from Ethereum to Tezos would have begun in June of last year when BTG Pactual announced a partnership with Tezos and Dalma Capital.

The partnership aimed precisely at the development of the ReitBZ, which at the time estimated to be tied to about US$ 1 billion in real estate.
It made a profit

According to an announcement made at the time, besides real estate, the proposal also included tokenizing, with Tezos, assets in various sectors, including assets, loans and global sports clubs.

Token holders have already received their first income from the Bank’s activities.

Even ‚champions‘ of profitability, Bitcoin funds are not the Brazilians‘ favourite

Thus, second, the bank paid via smartcontract, using blockchain technology, in an unprecedented event in the global financial market.

The smartcontracts had a security audit made by Chain Security (for the Ethereum blockchain) and Least Authority (for the Tezos blockchain).

„We make constant investments in innovation and state-of-the-art technology and the ReitBZ is proof that our efforts in this direction have been generating good returns for clients,“ says Roberto Sallouti, CEO of BTG Pactual.

Thus, according to BTG, the amount of dividends paid will be US$ 87,569.20, and this first investment cycle generated US$ 220,288.12 of revenue.

La Romania ospiterà la sua prima asta Bitcoin

Un’altra asta di bitcoin è nei libri. Questa volta l’asta si terrà nel paese della Romania, una prima per la nazione europea.

La Romania sta avendo la sua prima asta di Bitcoin

L’Agenzia nazionale rumena per la gestione dei beni sequestrati sarà responsabile di trovare un acquirente per le piccole quantità di bitcoin ed etere che cercherà di vendere. Il denaro è stato preso seguendo uno schema di denaro fraudolento. Circa 0,97 di etere sono disponibili per l’acquisto, mentre sono disponibili anche più di 1.670 lei rumeni – la valuta nazionale del paese – e circa 0,6 unità di bitcoin. Al momento in cui scriviamo, il bitcoin in questione vale poco più di 7.000 dollari.

Allo stato attuale, l’asta non sarà aperta ai singoli cittadini.

Piuttosto, i partecipanti devono essere una persona giuridica registrata che impiega tattiche di conoscenza del cliente (KYC) per garantire che tutte le identità dei clienti siano contabilizzate. Inoltre, devono soddisfare tutte le leggi standard stabilite dalle autorità di regolamentazione finanziaria rumene volte a combattere il riciclaggio di denaro sporco e altri schemi illeciti. Infine, l’entità che vince il denaro facendo l’offerta più alta deve fornire tutti i dati relativi agli indirizzi sul suo scambio.

Ciò costituisce un vero problema per quanto riguarda la privacy e potrebbe potenzialmente dissuadere molte società finanziarie dal partecipare all’evento. Da un lato, le quantità di bitcoin e di etere in questione sono piuttosto piccole. Una grande e legittima piattaforma di trading di cripto-currency è probabilmente in grado di deridere i piccoli numeri, sapendo che probabilmente trattano con otto volte tanto denaro su base regolare. È strano pensare che la Romania si impegnerebbe in un’asta del genere, considerando che non c’è più denaro a disposizione.

In secondo luogo, l’idea che uno scambio partecipante – e in seguito vincitore – debba fornire tutti i dati relativi alle attività finanziarie dei propri clienti è un po‘ spaventosa. Il concetto di privacy è sempre stato grande quando si tratta di utenti e trader di criptovalute.

La maggior parte degli scambi lo sa, e probabilmente sarà riluttante a partecipare nella convinzione che i suoi clienti potenzialmente si allontaneranno e porteranno i loro affari altrove, dato che la loro rispettiva piattaforma uscirà vincitrice.
Questo accade molto

Quando si tratta di moneta criptata rubata o fraudolenta, un’asta sembra sempre essere la grande soluzione che i governi cercano.

Non possiamo dimenticare l’asta „originale“ di bitcoin, in cui tutto il denaro confiscato a Ross Ulbricht – la presunta mente dietro la piattaforma web oscura basata su bitcoin della Via della Seta – nel 2013 è stato poi venduto a personaggi come Tim Draper.

Tuttavia, sono entrate in gioco aste più recenti, con l’ultima tenutasi negli Stati Uniti appena otto mesi fa a febbraio. La scorta di bitcoin a disposizione degli acquirenti valeva ben 37 milioni di dollari, e il denaro era stato confiscato da vari procedimenti penali federali.
