I prodotti di investimento in asset digitali hanno raggiunto l’afflusso record di $ 4,2 miliardi già in questo trimestre

Bitcoin domina ma Ethereum sta crescendo in popolarità per i prodotti di investimento istituzionale.

Secondo il gestore degli investimenti di asset digitali, CoinShares, gli afflussi di prodotti di investimento di asset crittografici di livello istituzionale hanno già raggiunto livelli record finora nel 2021

Secondo il rapporto settimanale dei flussi di fondi del 15 marzo di Coinshares, gli afflussi del primo trimestre nei fondi di criptovaluta sono aumentati del 7,7% e ammontano già a 4,2 miliardi di dollari, battendo il record trimestrale di 3,9 miliardi di dollari stabilito nel quarto trimestre del 2020.

Ora ci sono cinque fornitori di investimenti in asset digitali con oltre un miliardo di dollari in asset in gestione o AUM: Grayscale, CoinShares, 3iQ, ETC Issuance e 21Shares. Secondo il rapporto, il nuovo fondo Purpose Bitcoin è al sesto posto con $ 517 milioni di AUM.

I fondi di investimento di criptovalute hanno chiuso venerdì 12 marzo con un record di $ 55,8 miliardi di asset in gestione a seguito dell’azione rialzista dei prezzi per la settimana, osserva il rapporto.

Questi tipi di prodotti di investimento hanno registrato un afflusso di $ 242 milioni, in aumento del 124% rispetto a $ 108 milioni della settimana precedente

Mentre Bitcoin rimane l’asset dominante, anche i fondi che fluiscono in prodotti di investimento basati su Ethereum sono aumentati man mano che l’asset cresce in popolarità tra gli investitori istituzionali . Per la settimana terminata il 12 marzo, c’è stato un afflusso di $ 113,5 milioni, pari a quasi il 50% del totale.

I fondi multi-asset sono i terzi con un afflusso settimanale segnalato di $ 3,6 milioni e una cifra totale AUM di $ 2,3 miliardi secondo il rapporto. Gli unici prodotti di asset digitali a registrare un calo degli afflussi per la settimana sono stati quelli basati su Ripple che ha visto un deflusso di un milione di dollari per il periodo.

Il rapporto ha rilevato che i volumi di scambio di Bitcoin su scambi affidabili sono stati leggermente superiori alla media a $ 11,8 miliardi al giorno contro $ 10,8 miliardi al giorno in media per il 2021.

Nel suo ultimo annuncio , il principale fondo globale di criptovalute Grayscale ha riportato una cifra di asset under management di $ 42,9 miliardi, di cui l’84% è il suo popolare Bitcoin Trust.

BTC palautuu 50000 dollariin

Markkinoiden yhteenveto: BTC palautuu 50000 dollariin

  • Bitcoin ajaa jälleen 50 000 dollaria palautumisen jälkeen.
  • Altcoins näkee myös suuria elpymisvoitoja markkinoiden myynnin loppuessa.

Tyypillisen verisen maanantain oli tarkoitus yllättää, kun markkinat elpyivät maaliskuun ensimmäisenä päivänä. BTC ajaa jälleen 50 000 dollaria alas, kun altcoiinit myös liittyivät nousuun.

Viime viikon BTC: n myrskyisän myynnin jälkeen, joka levisi viikonloppuun. Monet odottivat, että ”Verinen maanantai” tulee täyttämään sen maineen. Tämän ei kuitenkaan pitänyt olla, koska BTC näki vahvan nousun Bitcoin Evolution takaisin kohti 50000 dollarin merkkiä.

Lisäämällä BTC: hen Altcoins See Huge Recoveries

Sata parhaan joukossa oli paljon suuria voittajia päivälle. Fantom (FTM) on kuitenkin lyönyt viime aikoina valtavia aaltoja seuraamalla runsaasti nousevia uutisia ja hintatoimia. Kulunut verinen viikko on antanut FTM: lle tilaa hengittää, kun projekti jatkoi pumppaamista. Muita merkittäviä altcoineja, jotka saivat kunnollisen voiton maanantaina, ovat CAKE, RVN, ENJ ja FLOW. Kaikkien näkemien voitot ovat yli 30% päivällä.

Paypal: Expansion of Crypto Service and CBDC Plans

Paypal apparently sees the United Kingdom as the next market for its crypto service. CEO Dan Schulman’s CBDC plans are also attracting attention.

After US customers of the payment service provider Paypal had been able to purchase cryptocurrencies via the platform since autumn last year, it was actually only a matter of time before the offer would also be available in other parts of the world.

PayPal itself had initially spoken of the “first half of 2021”

Now that time is getting closer and closer. Apparently, UK residents will be the first outside of the US to be able to use PayPal to buy and sell cryptocurrencies.

According to a recent tweet from journalist Carl Quintanilla , PayPal is initially planning to expand its crypto service in the UK. This should already happen in the coming months. There are also plans to make crypto available to Crypto Bull review wallet holders before the end of the 2nd quarter of 2021. Other offers include the international expansion of the in-house payment app Venmo before 2026 and a broader rollout of the app’s credit cards.

PayPal wants to play an important role in CBDC distribution

At the presentation of the figures from the fourth quarter of 2020, CEO Dan Schulman announced the expansion of Venmo services. However, he initially left it open which market will follow the USA in terms of crypto offerings. However, at a PayPal Investors Day on February 11, 2021, Schulman mentioned that he saw his company play a significant role in the use of central bank digital currencies (CBDCs).

Test report: does the bitcoin broker Bitpanda keep what it promises?

Bitpanda offers over 50 crypto assets, a Bitcoin savings plan, a crypto VISA card and even precious metals. But is Bitpanda really as good as everyone says? We checked out the neo broker from Vienna.

PayPal is a perfect match for central banks and governments to distribute this CBDC in a modern way so that more people can access the digital economy and we think this is a focus area of ​​this new business unit we have built.

And Schulman

Some analysts are already rumoring that there is more to Schulman’s comments than “just” efforts at CBDC sales. “Step 1” on the product roadmap presented during the presentation of the figures is the activation of crypto as a financing instrument. Schulman also indicated that PayPal is considering digitizing other assets through the use of smart contracts and tokenization. Since he called the conventional financial system “obsolete,” this approach is only consistent.

As far as PayPal’s investment in cryptocurrencies is concerned, according to CFO John Rainey, it is time to wait and see. He said this in an interview with the Canadian broadcaster CNBC . Rainey thinks it is very unlikely that the company will take such a step.

Alex Gladstein van de Human Rights Foundation noemt Bitcoin

Alex Gladstein van de Human Rights Foundation noemt Bitcoin ‚een ontsnappingsluik voor tirannie‘

Alex Gladstein van de Human Rights Foundation (HRF) heeft de bitcoin geprezen en gezegd dat het een ontsnappingsluik is voor tirannie en dat er meer achter zit dan alleen de prijs. In een korte video zegt Gladstein, de chief strategy officer (CSO) van HRF, dat „mensen die bitcoin kopen een instrument voor de bescherming van de mensenrechten versterken“.

Bitcoin bewaart vrijheid

Ondertussen gebruikt Gladstein de video om terug te slaan tegen bitcoincritici als Paul Krugman, die hij beschrijft als iemand die leeft in een „beschermde omgeving in een liberale democratie met grondwettelijke bescherming.“ De CSO voegt eraan toe dat aangezien Krugman’s „eigen munteenheid (USD) wereldwijd Bitcoin Code dominant en relatief stabiel is,“ het voor hem gemakkelijk is om een bankrekening te openen.

Evenzo zegt de HRF-directeur dat het voor Krugman gemakkelijk is om een mobiele app te gebruiken om „rekeningen te betalen of zijn vermogen te laten groeien door te investeren in onroerend goed of aandelen“. Deze privileges gelden daarentegen niet voor 4,2 miljard mensen die leven onder „autoritaire regimes die geld gebruiken als een instrument voor toezicht en staatscontrole.“

Daarom, aldus Gladstein, „is sparen en handelen buiten het gezichtsveld van de overheid geen duistere zaak. Het is een manier om hun vrijheden te behouden.“

Bitcoin-financiering en donaties

In de tussentijd identificeert de CSO verschillende landen die controle over het monetaire systeem gebruiken om mensenrechtenverdedigers het zwijgen op te leggen en hoe bitcoin een verschil kan maken. Enkele van de genoemde landen zijn China, Rusland, Wit-Rusland, Nigeria, en Myanmar (Birma). Ondertussen, als we het hebben over mensen die onder zulke regeringen leven, zegt Gladstein:

Bitcoin biedt een manier om hun geld in cyberspace te bewaren, opgesloten door encryptie, veilig tegen devaluatie, in een netwerk dat nog nooit gehackt is. Voor hen is het digitaal geld en digitaal goud in één.

De CSO geeft vervolgens voorbeelden van enkele pro-democratische groepen of individuen die bitcoin hebben gebruikt om repressieve regeringen te verslaan. Gladstein zegt:

In de afgelopen maanden hebben Wit-Russische activisten bitcoin gebruikt om het regime te trotseren door meer dan 3 miljoen dollar aan niet te stoppen geld rechtstreeks naar stakende arbeiders te sturen, die het vervolgens lokaal omzetten in roebels op peer-to-peer marktplaatsen om hun gezinnen te voeden terwijl ze protesteren tegen de dictatuur van het land.“

De Nigeriaanse Endsars-beweging en de Russische oppositieleider Alexei Navalny zijn opmerkelijke voorbeelden waarbij mensenrechtenverdedigers zich tot bitcoin wendden. Ook burgers van democratische staten kunnen bitcoin gebruiken om te ontsnappen aan „financiële controles, de-platforming, en een steeds groter wordende surveillance staat.“

Ondertussen, zegt Gladstein, „vertrouwen steeds meer mensen op gemakkelijk te controleren apps zoals Apple Pay en Alipay,“ en biedt bitcoin een alternatief.

DeFi investors flock to Flamingo following gas hike

Ethereum’s average transaction fee, known as “gas fees,” approaches $ 20.

Binance Smart Chain addresses hit one million mark.

Flamingo Finance, based on NEO, is gaining ground.

Steadily rising transaction prices on the Bitcoin Future network are prompting DeFi investors and miners to look to cheaper alternatives. Because of this, the volumes of Flamingo Finance and Binance Smart Chain have increased.

Ethereum’s new all-time high of $ 1,700, reached on February 4, caused gas fees to skyrocket again. This makes interacting with DeFi difficult as the average cost of a transaction is now just under $ 20 according to BitInfoCharts.

Binance: gas fees serve DeFi

The fact of making small transactions on blockchains (Layer-1) based on Ethereum is now much too expensive, making participation in DeFi complicated for everyone. Developer Julian Koh tweeted the prices of the trade fees. Koh added that this would only force users and developers to migrate to other solutions.

Unsurprisingly, DeFi traders and miners are already among those looking for alternatives. Ethereum rivals like Binance Smart Chain and NEO-based Flamingo Finance are seeing an increase in users and volume.

Binance: the booming blockchain

Binance’s Smart Chain (BSC) has recently gained in popularity, mainly because transactions are a fraction of the cost of the Ethereum equivalent.

According to BscScan, the number of unique addresses on the blockchain has just passed the milestone of one million addresses.

The BEP-20 daily token transfer chart is also showing a record high of over one million, while the ratio of daily BSC trades to Ethereum trades held steady at 50% for a week.

Le boom des pièces de monnaie fait grimper les actifs de la plate-forme à plus de 90 milliards de dollars

Dans un rapport de fin d’année récemment publié, Coinbase se targue d’avoir maintenant plus de 90 milliards de dollars d’actifs en cryptologie monétaire sur sa plateforme.

Coinbase a partagé un rapport public de fin d’année pour 2020.
La société affirme avoir 90 milliards de dollars sur son marché boursier, dans une gamme de cryptocurrences.
Coinbase détaille également sa relation avec Microstrategy, la société de technologie qu’elle a aidé à acheter d’énormes quantités de Bitcoin.

Dans un rapport de fin d’année récemment publié, Coinbase a déclaré avoir maintenant plus de 90 milliards de dollars en cryptocurrences sur sa plateforme.

Le rapport, qui s’adresse aux clients institutionnels de Coinbase, a été publié vendredi après-midi et tente de clarifier la place de la société dans l’écosystème de la cryptographie au sens large.

Les sujets abordés comprennent l’état du Bitcoin en 2020, ainsi que l’Ethereum, le DeFi, la réglementation de la cryptographie et les „cryptodollars“, autrement appelés „stablecoins“, qui sont des cryptocurrences visant à éliminer la volatilité avec l’appui de la monnaie fiduciaire.

  • BTC
  • -11.58%$31,824.49
  • 24H7D1M1YMAX
  • Prix de la CTB

Coinbase, en collaboration avec la société de paiement Circle, a lancé la pièce de monnaie USD stable (USDC) en 2018. L’idée est que le prix est toujours de 1,00 $, et qu’il y a un dollar réel pour chaque USDC émis. L’USDC est encore loin derrière le Tether (USDT) en termes de capitalisation boursière et de volume de transactions, bien que la croissance de l’USDC soit actuellement supérieure à celle du leader du marché.

„Le cas le plus fréquent de crypto-dollars est le transfert efficace de fonds entre bourses“, peut-on lire dans le rapport. „De plus en plus, nous voyons également des financements privés, par exemple des investissements dans des start-ups et de nouveaux actifs de crypto, financés par l’USDC par des investisseurs plus expérimentés en crypto. Enfin, nous constatons qu’un nombre croissant d’utilisateurs de la cryptographie utilisent des cryptodollars pour s’engager dans les protocoles DeFi“.

La capitalisation boursière de l’USDC a commencé en 2020 en dessous de 500 millions de dollars ; elle est depuis passée à plus de 5,4 milliards de dollars.

L’USDC se développe plus vite que le câble au milieu du boom des pièces de monnaie

Le rapport détaille également la relation de la Coinbase avec plusieurs grands clients institutionnels, tels que MicroStrategy et One River Asset Management. MicroStrategy, dirigée par l’évangéliste des bitcoins Michael Saylor, a acheté un nombre impressionnant de 70 784 bitcoins dans le cadre de transactions négociées par Coinbase, soit plus de 2,3 milliards de dollars.

L’investissement massif de Microstrategy pourrait avoir joué un rôle dans le marché haussier des bitcoins l’automne dernier ; depuis le premier achat de la société en août, d’autres grands acteurs institutionnels comme Square et PayPal ont annoncé leur soutien à la cryptographie dans leurs produits de paiement.

Bitcoin minedrift vanskeligheder stiger med 10%

  • Bitcoin minedrift vanskeligheder indstillet til at stige over 20 billioner
  • Minearbejdere holder deres BTC i håb om en fortsat bull run for industrien

Sværhedsgraden knyttet til minedrift af Bitcoin steg bare med 10%. Dette blev gjort kendt af BTC.com, der viste, at niveauet ville stige til over 20 billioner. Dette markerer også den største stigning i Bitcoin-minedrift i de sidste fire måneder.

Bitcoins nuværende hashrate er steget med omkring 148 EH / s, og sværhedsgraden har tendens til at stige, når der er blevet udvundet blokke i 2016. Denne stigende sværhedsgrad sørger for, at den gennemsnitlige tid mellem hver mineret blok forbliver på 10 minutter.

En populær erhvervsdrivende på kryptorummet, hodlonaut, havde tidligere fremhævet, at når sværhedsgraden for de førende kryptoaktivejusteringer, ville den stige over 20 billioner mark for den første i aktivets historie.

Generelt bruges sværhedsgraden til at holde styr på, hvor hård Bitcoin-minedrift kan være.

Efter øget Bitcoin-minedriftsproblemer sælger minearbejdere ikke

På trods af den stigende hashrate og det øgede sværhedsgrad knyttet til Bitcoin-minedrift er minearbejdere forblevet uforstyrrede, da de fortsat har lagt flere ressourcer på at investere i netværket.

Siden maj sidste år, da Bitcoin halveredes, er antallet af BTC-udstrømninger fra minearbejdere faldet betydeligt. Dette er underligt i betragtning af det faktum, at værdien af ​​Bitcoin var vokset enormt siden begyndelsen af ​​året og endda skåret ud over $ 40.000.

Current Miners Position Index (MPI) foreslår også, at minearbejdere skal sælge, da dets data angiver forholdet mellem Bitcoin, der efterlader minearbejdernes tegnebøger til 4,5. Når værdien af ​​dette forhold overstiger 2, forventes det, at minearbejdere skal sælge.

Minearbejdere har dog været tilbageholdende med at sælge, især da reserverne for nogle kryptobørs er begyndt at falde, og med prisen stadig stigende, hvilket indikerer en accelererende optrend.

Dette kunne forklare, hvorfor de ikke har solgt, da de måske ønsker at få flere fordele ved den fortsatte kryptoindustri-bull run, som nogle analytikere har forudsagt ville vare hele året rundt.

All-time highs and $30,000 possible by the end of the year: 5 important things to know about bitcoin

Hodler got a nice gift for Christmas with Bitcoin’s new all-time highs. However, it is now also coming into the crosshairs of regulators.

Bitcoin (BTC) has had a week like no other. It hit new all-time highs of $28,400 and is holding very high.
What’s next for it?

Cointelegraph presents five factors that will influence the direction of the Bitcoin Formula price this week.

Gold rises on Trump’s signing of stimulus package

Markets were spared a nightmare this week after U.S. President Donald Trump agreed to sign off on Congress‘ $900 billion stimulus package.

The package makes the U.S. central bank’s debt pile even bigger and includes various perks for businesses. For U.S. citizens, however, the direct financial aid is less than it was in March.

Trump said he could not agree to the second package because of the small amount of direct payments ($600 instead of $1,200), but later changed his mind.

Thus, the markets started the new week on a positive note. The S&P 500 futures were able to record slight gains before the opening on Wall Street.

At the same time, the price of gold has also grown. Data shows that the precious metal could now make its biggest annual gain in a decade.

Compared to the end of November, XAU/USD is up $111, or 6.25 percent.

„President @realDonaldTrump vetoed only nine bills. That’s the fewest number since Warren Harding, who was in office for only two years, from 1921 to 1923,“ as gold advocate and notorious bitcoin critic Peter Schiff tweeted when the bill was signed into law.

„Since Chester Arthur (1881 to 1885), no president who has served a full term has vetoed fewer bills. You can’t drain the swamp by making it deeper.“

Regulations expected for Bitcoin

After becoming popular with a wider audience over Christmas and reaching new highs, Bitcoin could soon run afoul of governments, sources warn.

With a new all-time high of $28,400 and a monthly increase of 55 percent, Bitcoin is now on regulators‘ radar as its mass appeal grows. Even for its proponents, the next year could be a challenging time.

After still-Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin tried to force new laws on non-custodial wallets, his successor Janet Yellen is unlikely to do any better, they say.

„In general, I think we’ve had challenges with Democrats. They favor more regulation, more oversight,“ chief strategist at digital asset manager CoinShares Meltem Demirors told Bloomberg on Sunday.

„I’m a little concerned about the direction things are going.“

As is common in the U.S., divergent political allegiances mean attacks by crypto-friendly people elsewhere can be mitigated. The new chairman of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) Elad Roisman is considered a fan.

Analyst: bitcoin decline at $28,400 ‚very healthy‘

Focusing on the recent Bitcoin spot market performance, Monday may become an important test for the bulls given the momentum from the weekend.

After hitting an all-time high of $28,400 on Sunday, Bitcoin saw a decline that many had already expected.

„#Bitcoin is making a very healthy correction as it went pretty vertical. Could be a temporary top,“ Cointelegraph Markets analyst Michaël van de Poppe summarized.

„What comes next? Consolidation, sideways movement, less volatility. That gives the rest of the markets room to keep up, $BTC pairs are doing well.“

Van de Poppe sees potential for altcoins to respond to the bitcoin surge, arguing that there are already signs that the „alt season“ is upon us.

„After #Bitcoin finishes its run (and it was pretty vertical), money will flow towards altcoins with large market caps. And then toward medium and then small market cap altcoins,“ van de Poppe continued.

„Altcoins are not dead, the flow of money is still the same.“

Bitcoin course potential according to the fundamental analysis of a billion dollar company is $ 400,000, Ethereum and XRP course in the analysis & the latest IOTA update

Three cryptocurrencies in comparison: Bitcoin, Ethereum and Ripple. On the picture you can see the respective coins ETH, BTC and XRp.

Welcome to our CryptoMonday weekly review of KW 51

As usual there was a lot to report this week and so it is not surprising that we can come up with a whole range of interesting news in front of the door.

Our topics this week range from a fundamental analysis of a billion dollar company that sees the Bitcoin price at around $ 400,000, to the current status quo around the Ethereum price and what conclusions can be drawn from it for the entire market, IOTA’s latest update to to Bitcoin Code and the current situation of their native crypto currency XRP.

And of course that was far from all! But that’s enough of the preface. Have fun with our CryptoMonday weekly review!

Afterwards, let us know what the most exciting or significant events were for you this week and discuss them with our community on Telegram .

Bitcoin course of $ 400,000 according to fundamental analysis by Guggenheim & other company confirms BTC purchase of 744 million

Bitcoin price rises sharply and can record price gains. The picture shows a price curve as well as stacked bitcoins.

The Bitcoin price has shot up well above its all-time high from the end of 2017. Many celebrate this event as a great success, but if you believe the experts from the corporate world, this is just the beginning.

The CIO of Guggenheim let it be known that, according to their fundamental analysis, the Bitcoin price should be around 20 times its value today. Another billion-dollar company also confirmed that it has invested over $ 700 million in BTC. But one after the other. In this article , we’ll take a closer look at what’s behind this news.

75% of private CFD accounts lose money. No EU investor protection

Ethereum is targeting $ 780, while these 3 indicators do not rule out an early market correction
The Ethereum (ETH) price rises and falls. The picture shows an Ethereum Coin and price candles in the background.

While everyone is watching the Bitcoin course with awe, it is worth looking to the left and right from time to time due to the high correlation of most cryptocurrencies with one another. In the case of Bitcoin , of course, all that remains is to look down and the first thing we see there is Ethereum . Therefore, today we want to devote ourselves to an extensive Ethereum course analysis in order to filter out how the crypto market is currently doing. Call up analysis .

IOTA Chrysalis Phase 2 live: Can the IOTA course benefit?

The IOTA price has risen. Thus the MIOTA price experiences a strong increase in value. This is commonly referred to as an IOTA Pump. The picture shows a MIOTA Coin in front of a rising price graph.

After the major crypto currencies such as Bitcoin, Ethereum and Co. could rise sharply in the last 7 days, we want to take a look at the IOTA (MIOTA) price today . Data from Coinmarketcap shows that IOTA was unable to outperform the market and has also been significantly below the average in the last 7 days with a price growth of + 11% compared to Bitcoin (+ 27%) or Litecoin (+ 22%).

Nevertheless, there is positive news: The IOTA Chrysalis Phase 2 is live. You can read what that means here .

Care Bears, Roger Ver och Tesla shenanigans: Dåliga kryptonyheter i veckan

Kolla in veckans Bad Crypto-podcast.

Medan Bitcoin förblir under taket på 12 000 dollar kan du välja framtida prisförutsägelser. De Winklevoss Brothers säga att myntet kommer att nå $ 500.000 och kanske till och med $ 600.000 om regeringarna börjar inkludera den i sina valutareserver. Tvillingarna satte inte ett datum på den förutsägelsen men Ecoinometrics, ett dataanalysföretag, tror att mönstret efter halveringen pekar på ett pris på 41.000 dollar före slutet av året. Bitcoin kommer sedan att slå sex siffror i mitten av april , säger de. Eller så kan du ta råd från Max Keizer.

RT-värden ser Warren Buffetts senaste investeringar i Japan som ett tecken på att Sage of Omaha håller på att ta slut på dollar. Bitcoin, säger han, kommer snart att se rekordhöga toppar

Buffett själv har kallat Bitcoin ”råttgift i kvadrat” men han är inte den enda personen som är skeptisk till digitala valutor. Användare på Reddit har upptäckt en tråd som visar svaret på Satoshis första inlägg . Det verkar som om ingen gillade det … förutom Hal Finney.

Roger Ver känner på samma sätt nu om Bitcoin ABC . Den nya Bitcoin Cash-gaffeln vill implementera en „myntbasregel“ som skulle flytta 8 procent av nya Bitcoin Cash till en utvecklingsfond. Frågan är vem som får behålla Bitcoin Cash-namnet. Ver vill vara säker på att det inte är ABC.

I vänligare nyheter kommer det indiska utbytet CoinDCX att hålla en online-utbildning och blockchain-certifieringskurs . Företaget hoppas kunna nå 50 miljoner användare i Indien. Portbase, en leverantör av logistiklösningar, har avslutat den första fasen av sin integration med blockchain-plattformen Tradelens. Företagen kommer att hantera verksamhet och processer för hamnar i Amsterdam och Rotterdam. Och Spartan Black, en asiatisk kryptovalutafond, ser bra saker i väntan på Polkadot . Priset på det nya protokollets DOT ökade med 200 procent inom åtta dagar efter lanseringen, och analytiker tror att det fortfarande har ett sätt att gå. Protokollet skalas snabbt, kostar mindre än Ethereum och görs av Gavin Wood som var ansvarig för mycket av Ethereums utveckling.

Polkadot är inte det enda blockchain-protokollet som kan vara användbart i framtiden. FinID är ett brasilianskt projekt utvecklat genom CPqD, ett forsknings- och utvecklingscenter för telekommunikation. Projektet syftar till att använda blockchain för att skapa suveräna, decentraliserade digitala ID.

Tommy Leas, även känd som DJ PLS & TY, har använt Foundation, den Ethereum-baserade konst- och kulturplattformen, för att lansera sin vinyl ”Very Special” EP . Plattformen säljer token som köpare kan lösa in för en fysisk vara, vilket höjer priset i linje med efterfrågan.

Leas startade sin begränsade upplaga på $ 50. Tolv försäljningar senare säljs för 68,27 dollar

Om det priset låter som en stjäl hör du vad en Tesla-anställd nyligen hört. Den anställde kontaktades av någon som erbjöd dem Bitcoin i värde till en miljon dollar i utbyte mot att placera skadlig kod på Teslas datorer. Hackaren planerade att kräva 4 miljoner dollar för att inte publicera företagets stulna data online. Men medarbetaren berättade för FBI och arbetade med brottsbekämpning för att fånga hackaren. En rysk medborgare, Egor Igorevich Kriuchkov, har åtalats.

Trots att hon hade sådana ärliga arbetare har Teslas aktiekurs varit mindre än fantastisk . Aktien föll 4,7 procent på en dag efter bolagets beslut att sälja aktier för att skaffa kapital. Zooma zoomade dock upp 41 procent på en dag. Det ger en ökning med 571 procent i år.

Och slutligen kommer Care Bears att gå med Cryptokitties och Atari i den blockkedjebaserade spelvärlden The Sandbox. Åttiotalets leksaker släpper NFT som spelare kan använda i Care-a-Lot-miljön. Vem skulle ha förutsagt det?
