The big BTC-ECHO reader survey with prizes worth over 30,000 euros

2020 is an exciting crypto year behind us. Reason enough to record the status quo and close the year with a short reader survey. Our goal is to capture the mood for the latest trends and developments in the industry and thus to develop a comprehensive picture of the scene.

One of our guiding principles at BTC-ECHO is: Without the community, everything is nothing. With this in mind, we would like to create an opinion barometer on the crypto-economy. For this purpose, we have designed a reader survey that covers the most important Bitcoin Bank. But don’t worry: the survey will take no more than five minutes and great prizes will be waiting for you at the end.

Every vote counts and every vote wins

In order to make your participation – besides the ideal contribution that you make – palatable, we have selected numerous prizes together with our sponsors. The best part is: every vote wins. If you complete the participation, you will receive a guaranteed bonus from us, even if you are not lucky in the raffle for the main prizes.

We were able to win well-known companies and players from the crypto industry as sponsors. The sponsors include:

They all provided exciting prizes for the survey. Overall, we come to prices with an equivalent of over 30,000 euros.

Why is this reader survey so important?

With your participation you help to bring important insights into the crypto-economy to light. The results of the survey can serve as an important guide for people and companies trying to further develop our crypto-economy. So if you are interested in developing better and better crypto services to your liking, then you can now actively contribute.

Which aspects are decisive for you when buying cryptocurrencies? What do you pay attention to when storing your tokens? And what motivates you to use individual crypto services? Let us know for just five minutes of your time.

Result of the survey

You can take part until December 20th, 2020 11:59 p.m. We will then notify the winners of our numerous main prizes. But as already mentioned: Nobody who answers the survey to the end goes away empty-handed. Of course, we don’t want to withhold the results from you either, which is why there will be a detailed evaluation in January. There we will then aggregate, anonymize and respond graphically to the most important results. So much can be revealed: Crypto compass readers are informed of the most important results even without looking at our homepage.

Bitcoin sobe, Coinbase cai: interrupções do câmbio e indignação do comerciante

A Coinbase sofreu várias interrupções desde março, muitas vezes coincidindo com dias de negociação de Bitcoin voláteis.

A Coinbase parece ter um problema de capacidade

Os usuários têm apontado há anos que, quando o Bitcoin e outros ativos criptográficos são especialmente voláteis, a bolsa às vezes fica offline sem aviso prévio. Essas interrupções podem impedir os clientes de comprar ou vender seus ativos criptográficos e são geralmente vistas de forma desfavorável pelos comerciantes.

Entre março e novembro, a bolsa registrou nove problemas diferentes, levando a vários tipos de interrupções ou problemas de conectividade, embora o impacto direto sobre o cliente não seja claro em alguns casos. Os problemas variam aparentemente em seu grau de gravidade. A principal atualização de status postada pela Coinbase durante esse período é: “Coinbase.com está enfrentando problemas de conectividade.”

Quatro dessas ocorrências coincidiram com a ação volátil do preço do Bitcoin, de acordo com velas de preço de 30 minutos em TradingView.com

Em 29 de abril, a Coinbase relatou problemas de conectividade. Em uma atualização de seu status publicada posteriormente, Coinbase.com parecia ter sofrido problemas entre 10h00 e 12h30 PDT naquele dia. O preço do Bitcoin mudou 4,54% durante essa janela de tempo. Cointelegraph relatou anteriormente sobre as dificuldades de plataforma vistas naquele dia.

Em 9 de maio, a Coinbase notificou o público sobre outra dificuldade , afirmando novamente: “Coinbase.com está enfrentando problemas de conectividade”. Desta vez, o preço do Bitcoin mudou 15,26% entre 17h00 e 18h00 PDT – a janela de tempo mostrando dificuldades, com base no status, que também incluiu detalhes adicionados publicados vários dias depois.

A terceira instância correlacionada com a ação notável do preço do Bitcoin aconteceu em 1º de junho, quando a Coinbase mais uma vez notificou o público sobre problemas de conectividade. Este incidente aparentemente afetou os usuários em algum nível entre 16h00 e 17h00 PDT, período durante o qual o Bitcoin movimentou 6,94% no preço. Nos dias que se seguiram a este incidente em particular, alguns clientes da Coinbase deixaram a plataforma , a julgar pelas retiradas de Bitcoin e relatadas pela Cointelegraph em 9 de junho.

A Coinbase também sofreu outro problema de conectividade em 28 de julho entre 2h e 4h30 PDT, durante o qual o Bitcoin movimentou 3,82% no preço.

No entanto, nem todas as emissões da Coinbase coincidiram com os principais dias de oscilação dos preços do BTC. A Coinbase notificou o público sobre os problemas em 16 de novembro, afirmando : “O site e os aplicativos móveis não carregam.” O bitcoin mudou apenas cerca de 1,72% no preço durante a janela de tempo declarada dos problemas, embora tenha sido o suficiente para provocar mais indignação na comunidade comercial. Problemas de conectividade também ocorreram em 28 de maio , 17 de julho , 18 de agosto e 11 de novembro , durante os quais o Bitcoin movimentou menos de 3% no preço durante cada incidente.

Ethereum 2.0 Ready for Launch – The longed-for 524,000 ETH has been gathered!

A miracle happened – 20 days after its deployment, the Ethereum 2.0 depository agreement finally gathered all the ETH necessary for its launch. The money was raised in time to maintain the launch scheduled for December 1.

510,528 ETH in… 6 days!

All indicators are green for Ethereum 2.0. 20 days after the publication of the deposit agreement , all of the 524,288 ETH needed to launch Ethereum 2.0 have been gathered .

Although the first 2 weeks were rather quiet, the contract has seen exponential turnout for the last 6 days .

In this time, it was possible to raise 516,528 ETH , an increase of 505% . In total, the deposit contract currently has 626,144 ETH , which is 116,000 more than the required sum.

Participation in the contract remained timid until November 20, with only a hundred deposits recorded daily. It was from November 20 that things accelerated with 1,283 deposits recorded that day, then a record 5,539 deposits on November 23 .

The day of November 23 alone saw the equivalent of $ 92 million in ETH token deposits. This date coincides with the explosion in the price of ETH , which rose 33% in the space of a week .

The collection of deposits was completed on time. Indeed, the launch of Ethereum 2.0 on December 1 was only possible if the deposit contract had the necessary amount, 7 days before the launch, namely today Tuesday, November 24.

As a result, we can now say that the launch of phase 0 of Ethereum 2.0 will be on December 1

In fact, this date will mark the creation of the first block (genesis block) of the beacon chain . As a reminder, the beacon chain represents the backbone of Ethereum 2.0 and its mission is to ensure consensus and synchronization with the shards , which should arrive by 2021.

We will now have to take our troubles patiently until the beginning of December to fully appreciate Ethereum 2.0. Despite everything, this launch marks only the first step of a 3-phase deployment, which is expected to extend until 2022.

China Construction Bank prime de manière inattendue Bitcoin pour 3 milliards de dollars d’obligations

Ethereum’s hype climbs with the boom of Bitcoin and DeFi

The price of Ethereum is undervalued, still 72% lower than its record level.

Vitalik Buterin argues that Ethereum is a complete financial landscape, not just a store of value.

The launch of ETH 2.0 is on the horizon and could propel its price to new heights.

The Trust Project is an international consortium of media organizations based on transparency standards.

Last week, Crypto Bank received a lot of attention from the crypto industry. It has indeed reached a new record in 2020 thanks to the rise of PayPal, which now accepts payments in encrypted form. Ethereum has taken a small wave of this hype, but analysts believe it still has plenty of room to grow.

Ethereum has only managed to gain a little more than 4% since the opening of the week at 380$. It briefly hit the $400 mark on October 21, before a considerable pullback. Bitcoin, on the other hand, rose by more than $1,200 this week, breaking the $13,200 level to reach a new record in 2020.

Since the beginning of the year, however, ETH has surpassed the BTC by two. This steady growth is expected to continue next year as technical, fundamental and chain indicators strengthen.

In addition, Ethereum is still 72% below its peak, while Bitcoin is only 35% of its own record.

  • ETH Options BTC Surge
  • Ethereum gains momentum

Several factors that emerged in 2020 contribute to cement the idea that Ethereum is a complete financial ecosystem in itself, and not just a value reserve or a hedge against failing fiduciary currencies.

Ethereum’s founder, Vitalik Buterin, recently suggested that the asset should no longer be called „altcoin,“ as it simply does much more today than it did five years ago :

In simple language, I hope everyone can understand:

In 2020, to continue to refer to ethereum as an „alt“ is as outdated as referring to a lambo as a „horse-less carriage“.

According to DeFi Pulse, there are currently a record 9 million ETH locked in DeFi protocols. This represents 8% of the total offer, and a growth of more than 200% since the beginning of the year:
Eth on Defi

ETH locked in the DeFi – DeFi Pulse

ETH is used and invested to generate more ETH and earn rewards in other crypto assets. Most of the bitcoins are kept in cold storage, but the amount of tokenized BTCs on Ethereum has also reached record amounts this year.

Institutional investment funds such as Grayscale Investments also filled up on ETH, which were largely considered undervalued. Industry observers have been watching this „perfect tornado“ that could push Ethereum’s prices much higher before the end of 2020.

 

Viidellä salausvaihdolla on melkein 2 miljoonaa BTC: tä, 10% kaikista liikkeessä olevista BTC: stä

Binance ja neljä muuta salausvaihtoa pitävät 10% kaikesta liikkeessä olevasta BTC: stä. Viidellä on yhteensä 1,96 miljoonaa bitcoinia.

Viiden keskitetyn pörssin hallussa on 10,6% liikkeessä olevan Bitcoinin (BTC) kokonaismäärästä. Tietopalvelualustan Chain.info raportin mukaan salakeskusten hallussa oleva BTC on yli 1,96 miljoonaa. Viisi kryptovaluutanvaihtoa ovat Binance, Coinbase, Huobi, Kraken ja OKEx.

Coinbase on vaihtoalusta, jonka suurin volyymi on 944904 miljoonaa bitcoinia. Bitcoin Coinbase -sisällön määrä leviää yli neljään miljoonaan osoitteeseen.

Lisäksi datapalvelualusta paljasti, että Huobilla on 323665 BTC: tä 901600 lompakon osoitteessa. Seuraavaksi listalla on Binance, jolla on 289961 BTC. Tämä asettaa Binancen vaihdoksi kolmanneksi suurimmalla liikkeessä olevan BTC: n kokonaismäärällä.

OKEx on neljänneksi listalla 276184 BTC: llä, kun taas Kraken lopettaa listan 126,510 BTC: llä. OKExin BTC-määrä jakautuu 339 000 lompakon osoitteeseen, kun taas Krakenin BTC-määrä on 672 000 yksilöllisessä osoitteessa.

Kuten Chianalysis totesi, noin 3,7 miljoonaa BTC: tä, joka ei ole siirtynyt viime vuosina, voi kadota. Tämä luku edustaa vielä 20% liikkeessä olevan BTC: n kokonaismäärästä. Chain.info huomautti myös, että monet salauksen haltijat olivat hyväksyneet riskin pitää digitaaliset varat keskitetyssä pörssissä.

Viiden parhaan pörssin lisäksi, kuten Chain.info korostaa, seuraavilla seitsemällä salausvaihdolla on yhdessä 210 000 BTC: tä. Pörssit ovat Bitflyer, Bitfinex, Bittrex, Bitstamp, Coincheck, Gate.io ja Poloniex.

BitMEX co-founder Samuel Reed released on $ 5 million bail

BitMEX co-founder and former CTO Samuel Reed was released on bail after his arrest on October 1.

His release is on $ 5 million bail, and his passport has reportedly been confiscated

According to the DOJ, the other co-founders were not taken into custody and are still at large.

The Trust Project is an international consortium of news organizations based on transparency standards.

The past few weeks have been hectic for BitMEX. On October 1, it was announced that the founders of the crypto derivatives exchange would face charges from the United States Department of Justice (DOJ).

These fees include operating an unregistered trading platform and violating bank secrecy law. As reported on Thursday, October 8 by BeInCrypto.com, BitMex has announced that its top executives, including CEO Arthur Hayes, will be stepping down.

On Friday, October 9, it was announced that former BitMEX CTO Samuel Reed, who was arrested in Massachusetts on October 1, had signed an unsecured appearance bond of $ 5 million for his release in the ‚waiting for legal proceedings. As part of the deal, the passports of Reed and his wife were also reportedly seized.

Changes have been made to the management of the 100x group, with immediate effect. We have posted the details on our blog:

According to a court document uncovered by The Block, Reed’s bail was approved six days ago. With the eventuality, he will appear for legal proceedings and, if found guilty, will surrender to authorities.

Meanwhile, Reed’s co-founders Arthur Hayes, Ben Delo and executive Gregory Dwyer, all charged with the same charges, remain „at large,“ according to a DoJ press release .

Along with the indictments, the US Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) has filed a civil action against Reed, Hayes, Delo and two other companies linked to BitMEX.

The volume of trading on the BitMEX exchange fell over the past week and opinions on its fate were mixed . Some crypto commentators have criticized BitMEX for damaging the image of the industry after the accusations, while others have noted the opportunity they present for decentralized trading platforms.

Reed is currently awaiting his next hearing. He is represented by the law firm Latham & Watkins LLP.

Der CEO von MicroStrategy hat gerade Bitcoin Cash mit einem Tweet zerstört

Michael Saylor, CEO von MicroStrategy, hat eine prägnante Antwort für alle Bitcoin-Neinsager, die immer wieder darüber nachdenken, dass die Top-Kryptowährung als Zahlungsmittel versagt hat – das interessiert niemanden.

Er ist überzeugt, dass BTC nicht einmal die Definition eines Tauschmediums erfüllen muss.

Warum Bitcoin als Zahlungsmittel fehlgeschlagen ist

Seit der Einführung von Immediate Edge sind fast 12 Jahre vergangen, aber Zahlungen bleiben eine Randnische in der Branche, obwohl sie ursprünglich als Kernfunktion von Krypto wahrgenommen wurden.

Bitcoin verblasst im Vergleich zu herkömmlichen Zahlungssystemen wie Visa aufgrund von Skalierungsproblemen. Es ist praktisch, um Millionen oder sogar Milliarden von Münzen zu vernachlässigbaren Kosten zwischen verschiedenen Geldbörsen zu mischen, aber langsame und teure Transaktionen machen die Top-Kryptowährung für Mikrozahlungen unbrauchbar.

Wie von U.Today berichtet, bemerkte der Gouverneur der Bank of England, Andrew Bailey, in seiner Rede über Stablecoins Anfang dieses Monats auch, dass die Volatilität von Bitcoin für Zahlungen unbrauchbar wird:

Ihr Wert kann ziemlich wild schwanken, was nicht überraschend ist. Sie erscheinen mir ungeeignet für die Welt des Zahlungsverkehrs, in der es auf Wertsicherheit ankommt.

Bitcoin Cash, die harte Gabel von Bitcoin, die die Blockgröße für die Blockchain-Skalierbarkeit von 1 MB auf 8 MB erhöht hat, wird von seinem leidenschaftlichen Befürworter Roger Ver aktiv als P2P-Digital-Cash vermarktet. Die Leistung war in den letzten Jahren jedoch geradezu katastrophal, da regelmäßig neue Tiefststände gegenüber Bitcoin aktualisiert wurden.

Mike Novogratz enthüllt, was dazu beitragen wird, die Einführung von Bitcoin voranzutreiben

Der beste Anwendungsfall für Bitcoin

Bitcoin versucht nun, seinen Status als Aspiration Store of Value (SoV) zu festigen, der möglicherweise Gold ersetzen könnte.

Saylor-die Bloomberg sagte , dass BTC ist weniger riskant im Vergleich zu Bargeld und Gold – glaubt , dass das Flaggschiff Kryptowährung ist der Vermögenswert , dass seine Firma ein Jahrhundert lang halten konnte.

Er hat auch Gerüchte entlarvt, wonach er möglicherweise BTC abschüttet, wenn es höhere Renditen für andere Vermögenswerte geben sollte, und sie als „Schaffung von Journalismus“ bezeichnet.

Bitcoin: Niet helemaal de populaire jongen in Oost-Azië?

De Oost-Aziatische markt is de grootste in het cryptografisch landschap, goed voor maar liefst 31% van het totale volume in het afgelopen jaar. Het is ook de thuisbasis van de hoogste mijnbouwactiviteit, waarbij China bijna 65% van het totale aantal Bitcoin-hashes in handen heeft.

Terwijl het handelsvolume wordt gedreven door een robuuste professionele groep van handelaren, suggereerde het recente rapport van Chainalysis dat investeerders in de Oost-Aziatische markt meer bezig waren met speculatieve handel (Altcoins) dan enige andere regio in de wereld.

Ter vergelijking: Noord-Amerika richtte zich het meest op Bitcoin en slechts 11% van de handelaren was betrokken bij Altcoins.

Waarom is Bitcoin dus het minst verhandeld in Oost-Azië?

Om eerlijk te zijn is het belangrijk op te merken dat 51% van het totale handelsvolume nog steeds wordt toegewezen aan Bitcoin in Oost-Azië, maar dat is alleen te verwachten gezien het feit dat Bitcoin Evolution bijna 60% van de gehele crypto-marktcap bedraagt.

Om het belangrijkste argument weer onder de aandacht te brengen, kunnen professionele handelaren die voor andere speculatieve activa kiezen, verschillende redenen hebben. Het feit dat China, Japan en Korea al een aanzienlijke hoeveelheid elektronische betalingen hebben ontvangen, waarbij AliPay in China en LINE in Zuid-Korea betrokken waren. De belangrijkste factor die deze transacties gemeen hebben, is uiteraard de centralisatiefactor.

Interessant is dat ons goede oude China hier een beslissende rol speelt. Van het totale handelsvolume in Oost-Azië is China verantwoordelijk voor bijna 76% van het volume en het is geen geheim dat de Chinese regering Bitcoin nooit hoog heeft aangeschreven. Hun steun voor de blockchain is goed geweest met de Chinese president, Xi Jinping is extreem vocaal over blockchain-innovatie, maar het woord ‚Bitcoin‘ is nooit gebruikt.

Het is duidelijk dat China politiek gezien vanuit een sociaal-economisch standpunt zijn gebruikers niet promoot om een gedecentraliseerde munt te gebruiken. Nu, professionele handelaren zouden zich daar goed van bewust zijn, terwijl de handel met activa zoals Tether (dat bepaalde gecentraliseerde kenmerken heeft die de voorkeur genieten van China) hen niet in de problemen zou brengen, zou Bitcoin misschien, en onder China’s jurisdictie, in beslag kunnen worden genomen van de investeerders.

China staat in feite met de voeten op elke cryptocentrische munt die de neiging om geprivatiseerd te worden en onder de controle van de gebruiker te staan, verafgoodt. Vandaar dat de dreiging van Capital Control nog steeds groot is in Oost-Azië, vandaar dat de professionele handelaar eerder handel kan drijven met een goed dat hen in de minste problemen brengt met de overheid, voor nu.
