First Swiss asset token issued: Sygnum tokenizes wine portfolio

With the first asset token from the Swiss crypto bank Sygnum, investors can invest digitally in a portfolio for fine wines.

The Swiss Sygnum Bank has launched the first Swiss asset token with the “Fine Wine” token, according to a message from the company on February 1st.

Premium wines as an attachment on the blockchain

Just in time for the Swiss law on Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) coming into force, Sygnum is launching a token for digital investments in a portfolio of premium wines. To implement the project, they have teamed up with Fine Wines Capital AG, a specialist in the trade of high-quality wines.

The issuance of a wine token opens a very illiquid and difficult to access investment class to a wide range of investors.

The tokenization was carried out with Sygnum’s own end-to-end tokenization solution Desygnate, which is connected to Sygnum’s own trading center SygnEx. The tokens can therefore also be traded independently of a listing on crypto exchanges . Sygnum’s Desygnate tokenization platform was only launched in December . The issue of the Fine Wine token is therefore also a first for Bitcoin Legacy.

New Swiss DLT law

Which entered into force on February 1, new rules for DLT innovations were in Switzerland in September 2020 was decided . Among other things, they define the legal framework for trading in digital securities and the effects of bankruptcies on reclaiming crypto tokens.

Kim Dotcom quiere financiar el desarrollo de Bitcoin Cash

El fundador de Megaupload y MEGA quiere promover el crecimiento de Bitcoin Cash.

Llaves para llevar

  • Kim Dotcom planea financiar el desarrollo de Bitcoin Cash.
  • Dice que la moneda está infravalorada en base a la cantidad de transacciones que realiza actualmente.
  • La moneda también se utilizará en su próximo servicio de monetización de contenidos, K.im, que se pondrá en marcha en el cuarto trimestre de 2021.

Kim Dotcom, fundador del infame sitio de intercambio de archivos Megaupload, ha anunciado planes para financiar el desarrollo de Bitcoin Cash (BCH).

Por qué Dotcom favorece al BCH

Dotcom respaldó a Bitcoin Cash durante una entrevista con Bitcoin.com. Allí, argumentó que el BCH está infravalorado basándose en el hecho de que maneja alrededor del 10% de la carga de transacciones de Bitcoin pero tiene sólo el 1% de la capitalización de mercado de Bitcoin. También aludió a los menores costes de transacción de Bitcoin Cash como su razón para favorecer la moneda.

El movimiento se asemeja a un anuncio anterior hecho por Twitter y el fundador de Square, Jack Dorsey. En 2019, Dorsey declaró que pagaría a la gente por trabajar en Bitcoin Investor. Eso llevó finalmente a la creación de Square Crypto, que actualmente está examinando las propuestas de subvención.

Dotcom, sin embargo, tiene una historia empresarial más controvertida. Su sitio original de intercambio de archivos, Megaupload, fue incautado y cerrado en 2012 debido a la violación de los derechos de autor. También cortó los lazos con su sitio de reemplazo, MEGA, en 2015, aunque el sitio todavía está en funcionamiento.

A la luz de la controvertida reputación de Dotcom, llevará tiempo ver si sus desarrolladores de Bitcoin Cash, que pronto serán contratados, producen aplicaciones de valor duradero para el ecosistema de la criptografía.

K.im usará el BCH

Dotcom también tiene una razón más práctica para apoyar la criptocorriente. Su más reciente aplicación, K.im, planea introducir un servicio de monetización de contenido que se basa en la cripto-moneda. Bitcoin Cash se integrará directamente con la plataforma como método de pago, de acuerdo con su actual plan de trabajo.

El proyecto originalmente planeaba lanzar su propio token KIM a través de un IEO de Bitfinex en 2019. Sin embargo, Bitfinex canceló esos planes. Presumiblemente, el sitio podrá evitar el retroceso regulatorio haciendo uso de Bitcoin Cash, que es una criptodivisa establecida.

Queda por ver si K.im cumplirá. El proyecto ha estado en desarrollo desde 2017 y se planea lanzarlo en el cuarto trimestre de 2021.

Vigilância do mercado: Ondulação (XRP) Surge 30% como Bitcoin perto de $38K

Mais de $1 trilhão de limite de mercado para todas as moedas criptográficas como bitcoin olho $38K para uma nova ATH, enquanto alguns altcoins de grande tampa explodiram com ganhos de dois dígitos.

Mais um dia e mais um recorde histórico de bitcoin – desta vez, a moeda criptográfica chegou a apenas alguns centímetros dos 38.000 dólares. O mercado inteiro também quebrou um marco significativo ao atingir $1T após ganhos impressionantes de dois dígitos de Ripple, Chainlink, Cardano, Stellar, e muito mais.

Bitcoin’s ATH mais recente está próximo de $38.000

É seguro dizer que a BTC entrou no novo ano com um estrondo. Além de um breve slide abaixo de $28.000 no qual a moeda criptográfica preencheu uma lacuna deixada aberta na CME, a bitcoin tem estado em um rolo, derrubando recorde após recorde.

Nas últimas 24 horas, o ativo continuou para cima e invadiu território desconhecido mais uma vez. Depois de suportar uma alta volatilidade que o levou a ficar abaixo de $34.000, a BTC iniciou uma impressionante subida que resultou no último recorde de todos os tempos – acima de $37.800.

Apesar de ter se retraído um pouco desde então, o bitcoin ainda é comercializado ao norte de $37.000.

Dados da Santiment indicaram que o aumento da BTC para novos patamares havia mudado a opinião das pessoas que agora estão „bombeando a narrativa de compra“, enquanto ainda ontem o número de „ligações de venda“ dominou os círculos sociais.

Tampa de mercado de $1T enquanto os Alts explodem

A CryptoPotato relatou ontem mais um grande marco alcançado por todos os ativos de moedas criptográficas – a capitalização de mercado ultrapassando, pela primeira vez, $1 trilhão.

Isto se tornou possível na medida em que múltiplos altcoins imitaram o desempenho impressionante da BTC nos últimos tempos, com ganhos notáveis. Em uma escala de 24 horas, o Ethereum saltou 7% para $1.120, Binance Coin (6%) para $44, Polkadot (2%) para $10, Litecoin (3,5%) para $168, e Bitcoin Cash (5,5%) para $450.

Entretanto, há ganhos ainda mais notáveis dos dez primeiros, incluindo a mais nova entrada – XLM.

A Stellar dobrou em sua recente corrida de touros. A XLM subiu 60% desde ontem e 190% em uma semana para $0,36. Isto ocorre quando a Fundação fez uma parceria com o governo ucraniano para desenvolver um CBDC.

A Ondulação subiu 30% a US$ 0,30. O aumento de 21% de Cardano para $0,34 ajudou a ADA a ultrapassar a BCH em termos de limite de mercado. O Chainlink acrescentou 16% e negocia perto de US$ 17.

Mais ganhos são evidentes com Matic Network (23%), Kyber Network (23%), Decentraland (23%), NEM (22%), Siacoin (22%), Augur (20%), Qtum (17%), e mais.

Os altcoins em ascensão reduziram o domínio da BTC para 68,3% em relação à alta de ontem, de 69,5%.

There are fewer and fewer Bitcoins – but can the „liquidity crisis“ push the BTC price?

The Bitcoin rally was characterized by strong accumulation by long-term holders.

The number of BTC on exchanges has declined sharply in recent months, despite the rally.
Analysts believe this is due to institutional participants buying bitcoin for longs.
These investments are expected to drive BTC up over time as the supply of coins on the market decreases.

Bitcoin supply crisis begins as masses of coins are withdrawn from exchanges

Analysts believe Bitcoin is in the midst of a supply crisis as BTC pushes to new all-time highs. With part of the recent rally largely driven by derivative buyers, it is clear that a large amount of BTC is being amassed through spot exchanges.

Rafael Schultze Kraft, CTO of Glassnode, shared the chart below on Dec. 21. It shows the price of BTC and the supply of bitcoin on exchanges over a macro time frame.

As you can see, the amount of bitcoin on exchanges has fallen sharply since the local highs during the February rally to $10,500. Schultze Kraft and others see this as a sign that bitcoin is in the midst of a supply and liquidity crisis, which should drive prices higher over time:

„#Bitcoin is in a supply and liquidity crisis. This is extremely bullish! And severely underestimated. I believe this will be clearly reflected in the bitcoin price in the coming months. Let’s take a look at the data.“

Buying pressure from institutions

The driving force behind this decline in Bitcoin on exchanges is institutional players, as some evidence suggests.

Just recently, for example, MicroStrategy confirmed that it had purchased 30,000 Bitcoins:

„TYSONS CORNER, Va.-(BUSINESS WIRE)-Dec. 21, 2020- MicroStrategy® Incorporated (Nasdaq: MSTR) (the „Company“), the largest independent publicly traded business intelligence company, today announced that it has purchased an additional approximately 29,646 Bitcoins for approximately $650.0 million in cash, at an average price of approximately $21,925 per Bitcoin, including fees and expenses.“

This is in addition to the 40,000 Bitcoin the company has already purchased in recent months. And MicroStrategy is just one of many companies currently buying the leading cryptocurrency.

Just last week, U.S. life insurance company MassMutual confirmed that it had purchased $100 million worth of BTC. The company was joined by other life insurance companies, though the names of these firms were not disclosed.

Los archivos Coinbase de intercambio de criptomonedas más grandes de EE. UU. Para IPO a medida que bitcoin supera los $ 23,000

El intercambio de moneda digital Coinbase se está haciendo público a medida que el renovado interés de los inversores en las criptomonedas ha llevado a bitcoin a un máximo histórico.

El jueves, la compañía anunció que presentó de manera confidencial un borrador de declaración de registro en el Formulario S-1 ante la Comisión de Bolsa y Valores. Se espera que el formulario entre en vigencia después de que la SEC complete su proceso de revisión.

Coinbase archiva confidencialmente para IPO

Coinbase, con sede en California, fundada en 2012, ha sido durante mucho tiempo un lugar al que acudir para comprar y vender criptomonedas, y la compañía se ha convertido en el mayor intercambio de divisas digitales de EE. UU.

La presentación de la empresa se produce inmediatamente después de un aumento en el precio de bitcoin. El jueves, la criptomoneda más grande se recuperó más del 12% para superar los $ 23,000 por primera vez registrada, según el proveedor de datos del mercado de criptografía Coin Metrics.

La medida se produjo solo un día después de que la criptomoneda superó la marca de los $ 20,000 por primera vez

Con el salto del jueves, bitcoin ha subido más del 200% durante el año. Bitcoin Trader ha atraído mucha atención de los inversores últimamente, y Paul Tudor Jones y Stanley Druckenmiller se encuentran entre los que se han pronunciado a favor de la criptomoneda. Las grandes empresas financieras como PayPal y Fidelity también han hecho movimientos en el espacio.

Michael Novogratz: „Invest 5% of your portfolio in Bitcoin (BTC)“

Pro-Bitcoin (BTC) billionaire Michael Novogratz has revised his copy when it comes to cryptocurrency investments. He now advises newcomers to dedicate 5% of their portfolios to BTC.

Michael Novogratz particularly „bullish“ on the future of Bitcoin

Michael Novogratz has always stood out for his rather optimistic positions when it comes to Bitcoin Bank and cryptocurrencies . In 2017, it revealed that 20% of its investments were made in BTC and Ether (ETH). And it looks like he has only solidified his position since then. In an interview with CNN , the billionaire revealed that it is now half of his portfolio that is devoted to cryptocurrencies.

To support his remarks, Michael Novogratz recalled that we were now seeing an interest of institutions in Bitcoin, and that this would only intensify according to him:

“We will see all financial institutions forced into this sector. “

Invest more in Bitcoin (BTC)

Michael Novogratz originally advised to invest 1% of his portfolio in Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies. But he revised this estimate upwards, ahead of asset performance :

“I think a new investor could put 5% in Bitcoin. Bitcoin will not go back to zero. It can certainly drop back to $ 14,000 – you could lose 30-40% of your money, but you’ll never lose 80-90% . “

The legendary investor has also confirmed that he believes that Bitcoin is now fully installed in its role of “ digital gold“ .

Is he right ? It seems so, if we are to believe several billionaires, who have recently announced that they have invested in Bitcoin . Last month, we learned that a Mexican billionaire had placed 10% of his cash in Bitcoin . And Ray Dalio also called BTC an “ attractive alternative to gold” .

XRP share price increased to $0.90 Collapse

XRP share price increased to $0.90 Collapse within seconds after Coinbase failure

The XRP price on Coinbase rose to as high as $0.92 and then plummeted again by 30 percent in a matter of seconds.

On November 24, the XRP price rose to over $0.90 on the US crypto currency exchange Coinbase. Shortly thereafter it fell again by about 30 percent. This was the highest price since May 2018.

XRP madness: Are Coinbase users behind it?

Apparently the rally was driven by Coinbase users, as the XRP price by Financial Peak did not rise as high at other exchanges. Bitstamp and Binance only reached a high of just $0.79.

Shortly after the crash, the hashtag „Coinbase“ on Twitter became very popular in the United States.

On the official status page of Coinbase it says at the moment that everything is working normally. Other sources say that the stock market is in reality having problems.

„SO A MIST – I’m new to Coinbase and all my XRP trades went nowhere and only showed up AFTER the bottom was reached. I lost a lot of money because of this“, said user Mike Palagi in one of the comments on Downdetector.

What caused the crash?

The rally may have been triggered in late October when an anonymous whale sent $50 million worth of XRP to Bitstamp at the time. Since then, the XRP/USD pair has experienced a strong parabolic upward trend. Last week it rose 137 percent to its highest level in over two years.

Prior to the price rise and immediate fall, the popular trader cryptoSqueeze noted that the funding rate for XRP became negative. He said:

Negative funding rate for XRPUSDT on FTX and OKeX. What can go wrong?“

Throughout the rally, the funding rate for XRP perpetual swaps on Binance remained at 0.01 percent. This means there was a balance between buyers and sellers when the price rose over 35 percent in one day.

Although the crowding out of short positions drove this rally, anonymous sources told Cointelegraph that some market makers on Coinbase withdrew their orders when the rally overheated.

Despite the current rally, the XRP is still 78 percent below its all-time high in January 2018, and in Bitcoin (BTC) the XRP is 83 percent below its all-time high. However, technical analysis suggests that the multi-year downtrend may have stopped last week.

This Bitcoin fan makes a big mistake and loses € 40,000 in one click

The fatal click also takes bitcoiners – It’s not just on the Ethereum (ETH) network that you can get big mistakes on transaction fees . This time, it was a Crypto Bank lover who had the bitter experience.

A satoshis error that costs (very) dear

This November 18, a bitcoiner probably did not pay enough attention to their transaction on the Bitcoin network .

Indeed, at block 657535, an unknown person paid more than 2.66 BTC in mining fees, for a transaction of less than 0.0109 BTC . In other words, this unfortunate man paid the equivalent of almost $ 47,000 in fees to transfer less than $ 195 .

Transaction fees that have calmed down on Bitcoin

The error will be all the more bitter for him as the average fees for carrying out a transaction on the Bitcoin blockchain have declined rather well since the end of October.

As can be seen from the Bitinfocharts chart below, average fees peaked at just over $ 13 on October 30 and 31.

Fortunately, they have fallen back to a slightly more reasonable average, around $ 4 , in recent days.

The expense error records remain however those established (2 days in a row) last June. An individual had then sent transactions on Ethereum by paying the incredible sum of 2.6 million dollars in ethers … and this on two occasions.

Our opinion on ProBit

The ProBit Global crypto stock exchange was launched in November 2018. This Korean exchange platform is one of the fastest and most fluid in the world, with a processing capacity of 1,500,000 transactions per second.

ProBit provides access to more than 500 different crypto-actives and stands out thanks to a clear and customisable interface. Offering a multitude of options, you will be able to diversify your trading strategies thanks to the Staking, IEO and other options available on the platform.

This promotional article was written in collaboration with ProBit.

Key features of ProBit

In addition to its wide range of cryptographic products available for trading, ProBit also offers a token launch platform, Initial Exchange Offering (IEO).

This IEO platform is regularly ranked among the top 3 most attractive. This is not surprising, as it has seen projects such as Cloudbit, Fiducia Network and Gaimin pass through its doors.

Cryptomoney staking is also available, and allows passive revenue generation within crypto projects with a consensus by Proof of Stake (PoS).

In addition, ProBit has its own native token, the PROB, giving you easy access to rich and varied benefits. Among other things, it will allow you to benefit from a reduction in transaction costs of up to 0.03%.

Headed by a former executive of the law firm
Kim&Chang (Korea’s most famous), the ProBit teams have made safety their number one issue. As a result, it has one of the best protections on the market, with notably a large majority of the funds invested in cold wallets (off-line).

It also strongly recommends that its users use double authentication (2FA) when using it.

ProBit registration process

Once you are on the official ProBit page, click on „Register“ at the top right.

You will first be asked to enter your email address and a password, which you will need to confirm to create your account (see below).

Once the page has been validated, you will be asked for a verification code (as below).

It will be included in an e-mail that you will receive via the e-mail address provided beforehand.

Although it is not immediately mandatory, the site recommends that you set up double authentication protection (2FA). As you can see in the screenshot below, you can choose to establish this 2FA security, either through a mobile application such as Google Authenticator, or via your mobile phone number and sending an sms. This optional step can be postponed by clicking on „Ignore for the moment“.

Once you have completed your registration, you will access your account dashboard, as described below. You will be able to easily change the language and the reference time zone, which is highly appreciated.

You will also be able to access the Customer Verification Process (KYC) from this page to unlock additional features to your account.

ProBit trading interface and options

By clicking on the „Exchange“ tab (located at the top of the page), you will arrive on the area dedicated to the exchange of cryptomonnages. ProBit’s trading interface is very comprehensive, with the price chart deployable via several time scales. Order book, limit orders (triggered at a given price) or direct purchase orders are also available.

Note that the „Trading View“ allows you to display prices using the excellent TradingView interface, giving you access to a large number of technical indicators. The trading environment can thus be adapted to all levels of requirements.

For more experienced users, ProBit offers several alternatives. Categorised under the names BTCBULL, BTCBEAR and BTCHEDGE, they give you the possibility of Short or Long Bitcoin Fast Profit with a leverage of x3 (Short 1x for the BTCHEDGE). You will therefore be able to diversify your trading approach, and generate profits regardless of market fluctuations.

Another option on the Korean platform panel is the „ProBit Exclusive“. This feature allows its users, in exchange for a PROB staking, to buy a popular token (Top 200 Market cap) at half price. The higher the staking of the PROB token, the higher the guaranteed allocation.

Finally, during each introduction of new tokens, trading competitions are systematically organised in order to improve the underlying liquidity and allow users to generate additional profits.

The ProBit staking option

One of the main originalities of the ProBit platform is that it offers integrated staking, which allows passive returns to be obtained in exchange for tokens.

The interface is once again very simple and intuitive: once you have chosen the crypto project you are interested in, you can see the interest rate (annualised) you will get in exchange for your tokens. This rate varies according to the staking duration (temporary locking).

ProBit’s challenge is to offer the staking of tokens that are still little known to the general public. Potentially very remunerative, you will have to be vigilant and carry out a personal research work. A safer option is to offer staking of native platform (PROB) tokens, with an annual return of 4%.

Conclusion

Between its extensive trading possibilities and its complementary offers for staking and issuing tokens by IEO, ProBit is an excellent choice because of its completeness.

Its clear and modular interface is suitable for both beginners and more experienced traders/investors. Its high level of security, as well as the advantages linked to its PROB token, are also undeniable advantages for this platform.

La posible caída de Bitcoin a medida que se acercan

La posible caída de Bitcoin a medida que se acercan las elecciones podría provocar una masiva reunión de Altcoin

La acción de precios de Bitcoin que se dirige a la temporada electoral ha sido increíblemente positiva, con los toros tomando el control total de su tendencia mientras intentan empujarla por encima de sus máximos de 2019 de 13.800 dólares.

Cada ruptura por encima de este nivel de precios ha dado lugar a que vea una fuerte presión Bitcoin Bank de venta, lo que podría indicar que seguirá luchando por ganar impulso a medida que se consolide por debajo de este nivel clave.

La fortaleza de la criptodivisa de referencia de cara a las elecciones presidenciales de esta semana ha sido bastante sorprendente, ya que ha creado una turbulencia significativa en el mercado de valores que ha llevado a muchos inversores a esperar que Bitcoin vea alguna debilidad.

Dicho esto, un analista está notando que espera que Bitcoin ponga un tope temporal alrededor de este nivel de precios y potencialmente empiece a bajar.

Señala que esto debería proporcionar a los altcoins un impulso muy necesario que les permita ganar algo de terreno frente al criptográfico de referencia.

Debido a que últimamente han tenido un rendimiento muy inferior a la BTC, los activos digitales más pequeños tienen mucho camino por recorrer antes de que puedan recuperar su dominio del mercado.

Bitcoin se enfrenta a una creciente resistencia a medida que Altcoins continúa bajando

En el momento de escribir este artículo, Bitcoin se está negociando marginalmente a su precio actual de 13.800 dólares. Esto es más o menos el precio al que ha estado operando durante los últimos días.

A principios de esta semana, fue capaz de subir hasta 14.100 dólares, lo que marcó un máximo en varios años. El movimiento a este nivel fue fugaz, ya que la presión de venta aquí fue intensa y rápidamente empujó su precio por debajo de 13.800 dólares.

BTC fue capaz de cerrar la semana por encima de este nivel, lo que le permitió publicar el cierre mensual de velas más alto de la historia.

Analista: Altcoins podría beneficiarse de un retroceso de BTC

Un analista señala que Bitcoin formando una tapa local en sus altos de 14.100 dólares podría resultar muy beneficioso para los altcoins.

„Creo que Bitcoin está poniendo una tapa temporal. La acción del precio al alza cuando se cierran los futuros me da más indicaciones de que veremos un retroceso continuo en las elecciones. Esperemos que después veamos que el capital se va a altizar“, dijo.

Altcoins ha estado funcionando muy por debajo de la cripta de referencia, pero sigue sin estar claro qué podría catalizar una rotación de BTC y hacia altcoins.

En particular, el sector del DeFi ha sido golpeado duramente por la tendencia alcista de Bitcoin, lo que significa que podría ver los mayores retornos cuando los altcoins comiencen a rebotar.
