Eis porque Bitcoin nunca mais verá outro evento de Selloff em estilo de março

O Bitcoin percorreu um longo caminho desde onde estava há pouco menos de um ano, com a selloff de 12 de março enviando a moeda criptográfica a mínimos de 3.800 dólares – a partir dos quais viu um crescimento exponencial de alta.

Um analista está agora observando que os dias da BTC vendo eventos de selloff como este terminaram, com sua estrutura de mercado subjacente amadurecendo a um ritmo rápido durante os últimos meses.

O recente êxodo da BitMEX pode estar contribuindo para sua estabilidade, já que o Bitcoin Era mercado está agora sendo impulsionado principalmente pelo volume de comércio à vista e não pelo volume de margem.

Há uma métrica na cadeia que reforça ainda mais esta noção, com a relação de troca de baleias permanecendo incrivelmente baixa durante todo o curso da tendência de alta parabólica do BTC.

Isto indica que os grandes investidores têm pouco interesse em descarregar suas participações, apesar do preço da Bitcoin ser atualmente negociado apenas 10% abaixo de seus máximos de todos os tempos.

Desde que os grandes vendedores não aumentem e comecem a colocar pressão sobre o criptograma, pode estar bem posicionado para ver significativamente mais acima nos próximos dias e semanas.

Bitcoin se estabiliza abaixo de $18.000, apesar da recente Selloff

No momento em que escrevo, a Bitcoin está negociando um pouco mais de 1% a seu preço atual de $17.900. Isto marca um enorme aumento em relação aos mínimos diários de $17.400, mas um declínio notável em relação aos máximos de $18.600.

Apesar da selloff de mais de US$1.000 observada quando a BTC atingiu altas de US$18.600 na noite passada, a moeda criptográfica se estabilizou desde então e agora está tentando se recuperar acima de US$18.000.

Onde as tendências do mercado a curto prazo dependerão em grande parte da possibilidade ou não de a BTC conquistar uma posição firme acima deste nível crucial.
Os dados na cadeia sugerem que a BTC não verá nenhum evento de venda em massa.

O CEO da CryptoQuant – uma empresa de análise na cadeia – explicou em um tweet recente que ele não acredita que Bitcoin verá mais eventos de venda em massa acontecendo.

Ele argumenta que a relação de troca de moedas criptográficas ainda é incrivelmente baixa, sinalizando que grandes investidores não estão vendendo para este rally.

„Caro baixinho do BTC, você pode me chamar de moço da lua, mas infelizmente, não haverá um salto em massa como em março deste ano. A relação de troca de baleias (90 dias de MA) ainda é muito baixa. A alta de longo prazo é inevitável“.

A não ser que as chamadas „baleias“ tentem atingir os máximos de todos os tempos do Bitcoin e vendam cerca de $19.000, há uma forte possibilidade de que a moeda criptográfica quebre acima deste preço e entre no modo de descoberta de preços.

Toronto-baserede investeringsforvalter 3iQ Corp. søger at skaffe yderligere finansiering gennem at foretage et statskøbstilbud til sin børsnoterede Bitcoin Loophole, der handler på Toronto Stock Exchange.

En erklæring, der blev offentliggjort i dag med en beskrivelse af investeringsfordelingen, siger, at fonden, der forvaltes af 3iq, sælger op til 1.050.000 klasse A-enheder for at rejse ca. C $ 25.200.000 eller ca. $ 19,3 millioner

Klasse A-enhederne tilbydes til en pris på C $ 24,00 pr. Enhed, en gunstig pris end gårsdagens tæt på TSX til C $ 30,38. 3iQs lukkede bitcoin-fond tilbød oprindeligt klasse A- og klasse F-enheder til $ 10 hver. For at få flere og flere købere var der ingen grænse for minimumskøb.

”Tilbudsprisen for klasse A-enhed blev bestemt for at være ikke-udvandende til den senest beregnede nettoformue pr. Klasse A-enhed den 5. november 2020 plus det samlede enhedsgebyr og udgifterne til udbuddet,” selskabet forklarer.

På trods af at den handles på den canadiske børs og drives af den canadiske investeringsforvalter 3iq Corp, er værdien af ​​investeringen denomineret i amerikanske dollars

3iQ forvalter allerede to private investeringsfonde – 3iQ Bitcoin Trust og 3iQ Global Cryptoasset Fund – som startede som en privat placering kun tilgængelig for akkrediterede og institutionelle investorer i Canada. Tidligere i år annoncerede 3iQ fusionen af ​​3iQ Bitcoin Trust i The Bitcoin Fund og distribuerer klasse B-enheder i fonden som kvalificeret under prospektet.

De børshandlede produkter giver aktionærer direkte eksponering for bitcoin-værdi. Den ikke-indløselige investeringsfond har også til formål at opnå kapitalstigning gennem en langsigtet beholdningsstrategi.

Efter en appel har 3iQ tidligere sikret sig godkendelse fra Ontario Securities Commission om at tilbyde sin Bitcoin-fond til canadiske investorer . I september har det også flydet sin Bitcoin-fond på Gibraltar-børsen, et skridt, der sigter mod at udvide sin investorbase uden for dets oprindelige noteringsområde i Canada.

For at yde støtte til fonden sagde 3iQ, at det behandlede spørgsmålene om prisfastsættelse, forvaring, revision og offentlig interesse i en reguleret investeringsfond. Det fungerer som investerings- og porteføljeforvalter for fonden, mens New York-baseret kryptobørs Gemini Trust vil udføre opbevaringsfunktionerne for de bitcoins, der holdes i fonden.

3iQ samarbejdede også med aktivforvalter VanEck for at udvikle et Bitcoin-benchmark i partnerskab med VanEcks MV Index Solutions, en reguleret indeksudbyder til udvikling af kryptokurrencyindekser og dataserier.

An Eth2 developer has suggested that the deposit deal won’t be done until mid-November.

This pushes back the launch time for Eth2 by several weeks

Eth2 has lost traffic and momentum in recent weeks as developers bustle about delivering a scaling solution.

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

An Ethereum Foundation researcher said the ETH 2.0 deposit agreement is expected to launch in mid-November. This follows a number of setbacks for Ether’s urgent scaling solution.

On the Bankless podcast, Danny Ryan, a researcher at the Bitcoin Future platform, said that the ETH 2.0 deposit agreement is not quite ready . The latter must obtain the green light from a crypto auditing company before being put into service.

The developer also noted that it was “essential” that the deposit contract be secure, as it could disrupt everything from signals to wallet addresses to deposits.

The Ethereum deposit contract would allow holders of ethers (ETH) to realize Ethereum stakin. The protocol is in the process of moving to a consensus proof of interest algorithm. The contract is expected to launch in mid-November, according to Ryan.

In an October 18 blog post , Ben Edgington, a developer of Eth2, said he expected the deposit agreement to launch “in a few days”, adding “we are ready to go”.

A glimmer of hope

According to Edgington, the launch of Beacon Chain would likely follow the confirmation of the “six week” deposit contract. The deposit contract having been postponed, the launch of Beacon Chain also seems to be postponed.

The shift from the work program model is the most significant change in ETH 2.0, although it is only one step in a larger process. Beacon Chain is one of the many different blockchains that will power the new system. Beacon Chain allows different smaller sharding chains to communicate with the main chains and is therefore integral to the success of ETH 2.0.

Although developer Evan Van Ness said a few weeks ago that the Beacon Chain launch was slated for a few weeks, the community is still waiting for it. Mr Ryan said researchers are still aiming to launch Beacon Chain by the end of 2020.

Relentless testing for ETH 2.0

Lately, the launch of Eth2 seems to be moving away in time. On September 29, the developers launched the “Spadina” testnet, which quickly failed. More recently, operators have dropped the important “ Medalla ” testnet , which raises questions about the actual readiness of Eth2. According to Bitfly, an Austrian blockchain company, the testnet is very resource intensive and adjustments still need to be made.

XMR se negocia entre niveles de soporte y resistencia a largo plazo de $ 135 y $ 90 respectivamente.

Los indicadores técnicos son alcistas en todos los marcos de tiempo.

Trust Project es un consorcio internacional de organizaciones de noticias que construyen estándares de transparencia.

El precio de Monero (XMR) ha recuperado todas sus pérdidas resultantes de la caída del 2 al 4 de septiembre y actualmente está intentando superar un nivel de resistencia importante.

El precio de XMR se cotiza actualmente cerca de un área de resistencia importante que se encuentra en 132 dólares. El área es el nivel de retroceso de Fibonacci 0.382 y un área de resistencia anterior, por encima de la cual el precio no se ha negociado desde agosto de 2018.

Una ruptura exitosa probablemente llevaría el precio a $ 166, que es el nivel de 0.5 Fib de toda la disminución y un área de soporte anterior.

Señales técnicas XMR

Los indicadores técnicos son alcistas ya que el MACD, RSI y el oscilador estocástico están aumentando. Si bien el RSI se encuentra en territorio de sobrecompra, aún no ha generado ningún tipo de divergencia bajista.

Por otro lado, una disminución probablemente llevaría el precio al área de soporte a largo plazo más cercana a $ 90. En el momento actual, este escenario parece poco probable.

El comerciante de criptomonedas @Altcoinsherpa describió un gráfico XMR, indicando que el precio podría aumentar hasta $ 175. Si bien el nivel está ligeramente por encima del área de resistencia que hemos descrito, está lo suficientemente cerca como para crear cierta confluencia.

El gráfico de seis horas muestra que el precio posiblemente ha estado siguiendo una línea de soporte ascendente desde que alcanzó un mínimo el 4 de septiembre.

Al igual que en el gráfico semanal, no hay debilidad en los indicadores técnicos, aunque el RSI está sobrecomprado.

El gráfico de dos horas tampoco muestra debilidades, a pesar de que el rally ha comenzado a volverse parabólico.

Si el precio bajara, hay un soporte menor cerca de $ 113. Sin embargo, no hay señales de que el precio vaya a hacerlo todavía.

Tal como está, el escenario más probable es una eventual ruptura por encima del área de resistencia de $ 135 seguida de un aumento hacia $ 165.

The evolution of the price of BTC throughout 2020 has been interesting; however, one of the most important milestones is that it has been in place for a little over two months, above US$ 10,000. Now, it’s valid to analyze a little more this event in which Bitcoin Circuit exceeds five figures for so long.

Will the miners make Bitcoin take off for the moon?

Is this the first time that Bitcoin stays at five figures for so long?

With this Sunday’s close, Bitcoin managed to overcome the previous streak of 62 days with a price above US$ 10,000. Specifically, Sunday marked the 63rd day in which Bitcoin closed above this limit, consecutively.

The previous record was set from December 1, 2017 to January 31, 2018, for a total of 62 consecutive days with BTC valued at more than US$ 10,000. It was around this time that Bitcoin changed hands for US$ 19,900 in Coinbase. The take-off of Bitcoin at that time was unprecedented.

The reality is a little different here, since in these 63 days the price swings haven’t been as violent. On the contrary, the last extended period of Bitcoin above the main five-digit mark has been „stable“.

The range of movement has been quite narrow, between US$ 10,000 and US$ 12,500. This has resulted in the 180-day return volatility for Bitcoin plummeting by 41% in September alone, according to CoinDesk and Coin Metrics.

This means that those who are betting on short trades can make profits, but not as big as they might expect in a context of extreme volatility.

Analyzing the BTC price

At the time of writing, Bitcoin has a value of US$ 10,887.10. This represents an increase of 1.35% in just 24 hours. However, remembering what we mentioned earlier about the decreased volatility of the asset, we could say that it is still within the narrow range of variation explained.

This makes us think of the countless times Bitcoin has been criticized for being too volatile. However, recent research and reports suggest that Bitcoin has been more stable than other assets or stocks, such as Tesla’s.

„People always assume that Bitcoin is incredibly volatile, but it’s no more volatile than many popular technology stocks,“ said Skew co-founder and CEO Emmanuel Goh.

In this specific case, Skew has published that while Tesla has seen its shares fall by 18 percent to date, in the case of Bitcoin this fall has been less than 8 percent.

However, since last week, cryptomoney has faced some selling pressure. We can confirm this with Bitcoin Whales as well, as we explained in our last report on the subject. So it may be that continuing this pressure for a long time may change things a bit.

Il prezzo della Bitcoin si è stabilizzato dopo il recente periodo di intensa volatilità
Questa turbolenza ha favorito soprattutto i tori, in quanto il crypto è stato in grado di radunare fino a 11.100 dollari prima di affrontare una forte resistenza che ne ha rallentato la salita
Gli analisti stanno ora ampiamente notando che potrebbe essere pronto a vedere qualche ulteriore debolezza a breve termine

Detto questo, la reazione moderata alla forte pressione di vendita nella regione inferiore di 11.000 dollari sembra essere un segno positivo per i tori.
Un analista ribassista dice che sta perdendo fiducia nella sua breve posizione a causa della forza attuale del cripto
Il Bitcoin e il mercato aggregato delle criptovalute hanno visto un’azione mista di prezzi nelle ultime settimane.

Nonostante la forte pressione di vendita che ha fatto abbassare il Bitcoin e che alla fine lo ha fatto scendere a 9.900 dollari, i tori dell’asset digitale di riferimento sono stati in grado di fare un passo avanti e di impedirgli di vedere un massiccio ribasso a breve termine.

Mentre parlava delle sue prospettive a breve termine, un trader ribassista ha spiegato che la debole reazione sia al rifiuto di $11.100 che all’attuale debolezza del mercato azionario gli sta facendo perdere fiducia nelle sue posizioni corte.

Questo potrebbe indicare che a breve termine è imminente una rottura al di sopra del suo livello di resistenza chiave.

BITCOIN LOTTA PER SUPERARE LA RESISTENZA CHIAVE

Al momento della scrittura, Bitcoin è in calo di poco più dell’1% al suo attuale prezzo di 10.783 dollari. Questo segna un leggero calo rispetto ai suoi massimi giornalieri di 11.100 dollari che sono stati toccati ieri.

Questi massimi hanno coinciso con una regione di immensa pressione di vendita, in quanto si trattava di un livello di supporto precedente che è diventato una forte resistenza una volta che è stato rotto al di sotto di un paio di settimane fa.

Dove le prossime tendenze della crittovaluta dipenderanno ora in gran parte dal fatto che gli acquirenti possano o meno recuperare questa regione critica dei prezzi.

TRADER: GLI ORSI BTC POTREBBERO PERDERE FORZA MENTRE LA STABILITÀ AUMENTA

Un trader, che era ribassista nei confronti di Bitcoin quando il suo prezzo si è avvicinato a 11.000 dollari, ha spiegato in un recente tweet che la reazione moderata che ha registrato finora alla sua resistenza di 11.100 dollari indica una crescente debolezza tra i venditori.

„BTC: Sì… quindi non era necessariamente questa la reazione che volevo. Una debolezza iniziata solo dai mercati tradizionali. Da qui in poi potrei fare qualsiasi cosa, quindi ho ridotto un po‘ le dimensioni per un guadagno di 150-200 dollari…“ ha dichiarato.

Viime viikolla BTC-hinta yritti selvittää tärkeimmät tukitasot ja aloittaa huomattavan nousun. Omaisuus sai vauhtia viimeisten 24 tunnin aikana noustaakseen korkeammalle kuin 10,5 000 dollarin tukitaso.

Tämän kunnollisen elpymisaallon mukaan BTC-hinta ylitti vastuksen 10,2 000 dollarin ja 10,4 miljoonan dollarin vastustasoilla kauppaa varten jopa 10 550 dollaria.

Härät näyttivät päättäneen työntää kolikon yli $ 10,6k, mutta kohtasivat jonkin verran myyntipaineita tällä alueella

BTCUSD on sittemmin korjannut matalamman kaupankäynnin hintaan 10 329 dollaria puristusajan aikana. Hyvä uutinen on, että kanavan muodostuminen on nousussa tuella lähes 10 400 dollaria. Siksi härät voivat kerätä tämän tukikohdan ympärille ja nostaa BTC-hintaa tulevissa istunnoissa.

Sulje lähellä $ 10.6K olisi voiman osoittaminen omaisuudesta, koska kuningasraha todennäköisesti vakiinnuttaisi voitot tällä tasolla ennen toisen korkeamman siirron tekemistä kaavioihin.

BNB: n hinta nousee 15%
Vaikka BTC-hinta ja ETH kamppailevat jatkuvan nousuvauhdin saamiseksi, Binance-kolikko (BNB) yllättää monet kauppiaat sen jälkeen, kun se nousi yli 15%.

Viimeisten 24 tunnin aikana BNB: n hinta nousi korkeimmalle tasolle, 30,82 dollariin, ennen kuin se korjasi hieman matalamman.

Tämä nousu tarkoittaa, että BNB on ylittänyt Bitcoin-käteisen (BCH) ja Chainlink (LINK) tullakseen kuudenneksi suurimmaksi salaukseksi CoinMarketCapin tietojen mukaan .

BNBUSD Pari aloitti uptick viime keskiviikkona, kun se rikkoi $ +22,00 vastus ja pysyi vakaana yli $ 21.50.

Lähellä oli 25,57 dollaria, ennen kuin kolikko onnistui lopulta ylittämään 30,00 dollarin vastarinnan 30,4890 dollarin kaupankäynnille.

BNB hyötyy Binance Smart Chain Launch -sovelluksesta

BNB: n hintojen vaikuttava kasvu viime päivinä osui samaan aikaan Binance Smart Chainin (BSC) äskettäisen lanseerauksen kanssa . Uuden ketjun avulla käyttäjät voivat panostaa BNB-rahakkeita tuottoisaan palkkioon.

BSC tukee älykkäitä sopimuksia, mikä tekee siitä täysin yhteensopivan ETH-lohkoketjun kanssa. Ketju on suunniteltu edistämään uusien ja innovatiivisten DeFi-tuotteiden kehitystä .

Toistaiseksi Ethereumin parhaat DeFi-protokollat, mukaan lukien Aave, dForce ja SwipeWallet, ovat tiettävästi jo kehittäneet uusia tuotteita BSC: lle .

Binancen älykäs ketju on nopeasti vakiinnuttamassa asemansa suosittuna alustana kehitystiimeille ETH: lla. Binancen toimitusjohtaja Changpeng Zhao twiittasi 13. syyskuuta :

„Binance Smart Chain (#BSC) -tapahtumamäärä saavutti 10% ETH-verkosta pari päivää käynnistämisen jälkeen. Autetaan vähentämään kaasumaksuja. „

Bitcoinin hinta on laskenut tänä iltapäivänä ja noussut noin 11 400 dollarista aiemmin päivällä 10 600 dollarin alhaiseksi ennen kuin se alkoi toipua ostajien astuessa sisään.

Mukaan CryptoCompare tietojen lippulaiva kryptovaluutta hinta putosi yli $ 400 hieman yli 20 minuuttia, menee yli $ 11,2000 to $ 10800 ennen myydä pois jatkui.

Lehdistöaikana BTC on 10 750 dollaria ja on laskenut yli 5% päivälle

Bitcoin Code hinta laski huomattavasti sen jälkeen, kun kryptovaluutanvaihto todisti keskiviikkona 92 ​​000 BTC: n sisäänvirtauksen, joka on suurin yhden päivän nousu 37 päivässä, blockchain-älykkyysyrityksen Chainalysis mukaan.

Chainalysisin pääekonomisti Philip Gradwell paljasti, että sosiaalisen median kauppiaat ryntäsi myymään niin lähellä $ 12,000 kuin pystyivät, mikä lisäsi BTC: n kestävää myyntipaineita. Hän huomautti kuitenkin, että markkinat eivät olleet täysin hyödyntäneet 92 000 BTC: tä.

Yrityksen tiedot viittaavat siihen, että markkinat eivät absorboineet 92 000 BTC:

tä heti, koska mediaanikaupan intensiteetti, joka mittaa sisääntulevan kolikon kauppakertojen määrää, pysyi alle 180 päivän keskiarvon 3,113: ssa. Ostajia ei ollut tarpeeksi vastaamaan myyjiä.

Ketjuanalyysin tiedot osoittavat lisäksi, että kryptovaluutan pörsseissä pidettävän BTC: n määrä kasvoi 12 000: lla. Myös BTC: n hinta on laskenut, kun Yhdysvaltain dollari on alkanut vahvistua, ja Yhdysvaltain osakemarkkinoiden lippulaivaindeksi S&P 500 laski 2,72%.

Strategist Lyn Alden said she went from „disinterested to quite bullish about Bitcoin“ in 2020. After BTC’s fall to $3,600 in March, she remains optimistic about the top crypto currency.

Alden, who founded the Lyn Alden Investment Strategy, wrote

„Therefore, I am neither a permaalist in Bitcoin at any price, nor someone who rules it out completely. As an investor in many asset classes, these are the three main reasons I went from not interested to quite bullish about Bitcoin earlier this year, and I still am today“.

The three reasons Alden gave are scarcity, halving, and the potential for Bitcoin to act as a backup against inflation.

Twitter Hacking Autopsy: Coinbase, Binance, and BitGo May Know Hackers‘ Identities

The Bitcoin shortage
Unlike traditional financial assets, including gold, the supply of Bitcoin is fixed. There can be no more than 21 million BTC, making Bitcoin a deflationary currency.

The shortage could give Bitcoin value, Alden explains in his article. There are no central entities that can alter BTC’s monetary policy. If the demand for Bitcoin continues to increase and its supply remains the same, it could push the value up.

She explained:

„The Bitcoin protocol limits it to 21 million coins in total, which gives it scarcity, and therefore potentially gives it value… if there is demand for it.“

The shortage of Bitcoin alone does not make BTC valuable. There has to be a market demand to support it. But there are other characteristics of Bitcoin, such as fungibility, transportability, immutability and decentralization, that make it a practical store of value.

Bitcoin also remains highly dominant over thousands of cryptosystems on the market. In terms of market capitalization, Bitcoin represents 62.4% of the total capitalization of the crypto market. That figure includes currencies that potentially have insufficient liquidity to justify their valuation.

Bitcoin’s dominance, and therefore its network effect, makes the top cryptomone even more compelling as a long-term savings, Alden said.

The halving of May 11
On May 11, Bitcoin’s blockchain underwent its third halving. Approximately every four years, a halving is activated, slowing BTC production by half.

The purpose of a halving is to decrease the rate of BTC production gradually as Bitcoin approaches its maximum supply of 21 million. A halving halves the rewards that miners receive, leading to a massive decline in miners‘ earnings over a short period.

After each halving, Bitcoin Champion historically showed prolonged price increases. Previous halvings occurred in 2012 and 2016. At that time, BTC was hovering around USD 11 and USD 650 in 2012 and 2016 respectively. Now, BTC remains above USD 9,000, after reaching an all-time high of USD 20,000 in December 2017. Alden wrote:

„Bitcoin has historically performed very well during the 12-18 months after launch and after the first two halvings. The reduction of new supply or flow of currencies, in the face of constant or growing demand for currencies, not surprisingly tends to push the price up.“
