Aavegotchi, these virtual companions who can make a lot of money

You have probably not escaped the craze for decentralised finance. You may have recently discovered non-fungible tokens (NFTs). They are fascinating ecosystems, boiling with promise. But what about the merging of these concepts? This is the Aavegotchi project, NFTs based on protocols of decentralised finance, with a Tamagotchi sauce. If it seems a little complex to understand, rest assured I’ll explain it all to you, and it’s really interesting!

The Aavegotchi concept

Aavegotchi is a community project supported by a grant from the Aave decentralised finance platform team. To put it simply, it is about digital ghosts (sort of virtual Tamagotchis!), with attributes, accessories and above all Aave aTokens.

It is a community-based project (governance by a CAD), carried by the blockchain video game studio Pixelcraft. They now own the Aavegotchi brand and are responsible for its development and the monitoring of the public roadmap.

Today, the studio has a great influence on the project in order to quickly develop the functionalities necessary for the launch. However, little by little, CAD will become more and more important, allowing everyone to have their say.

Autopsy of an Aavegotchi

Our ghost companions are therefore ways of getting interest from our cryptomonnages, but they are also fellow players. This way, we can interact with them, in the way of Tamagotchi (and more interesting!). The Aavegotchis thus have different characteristics, which make them unique. Here is the list and explanations of these different characteristics, the Aavegotchis being much more complex creatures than one might think.

The spiritual spirit

The spirit of an Aavegotchi is the link between these NFTs and the DeFi. It is also what allows their owners to get a return on these virtual companions. It is a quantity of aTokens linked to the Aavegotchi. The longer you keep your Aavegotchi, the more profitable it will be. During a sale, the aTokens are also transferred to the new owner.

Technically, the non-fungible token is the operator of a smart-deposit contract intended to receive aTokens. These aTokens can be obtained via the Aave protocol, by lending various Ethereum tokens to other users. Each aToken generates an income, depending on the ROI of the loaned token (Dai, USDT, LINK, AAVE and many others).

If the owner of a ghost recovers the linked aTokens, the Aavegotchi is destroyed.

Character traits

The second characteristic of an Aavegotchi is its essential features. Given to its creation, they will define its capacities during mini-games. No one trait is optimal, but each one will particularly influence performance in different activities.

List of traits :

  • Energy;
  • Aggressiveness;
  • Sinister character;
  • Brain size;
  • Eye size;
  • Colour of eyes.

Each of these traits can be Common, Unusual, Rare or Mythical, which will influence their value (between 0 and 100). Obviously, power comes with rarity and only 4% of Aavegotchis will have a Mythical trait for example.

Loyalty

This character determines the loyalty of your Aavegotchi to you. It obviously depends on whether you interact with him regularly or not, but also on the length of time you have adopted him. Aavegotchis are not simple smart-contracts dedicated to the storage of aTokens, but real virtual companions!

Some ways to improve your relationship with your Aavegotchi :

  • Participate with him in the governance of the AavegotchiDAO ;
  • Feed him;
  • Make him equip him with nice equipment;
  • Take him/her to do activities and other mini-games.

Level and experience

Aavegotchis gain experience by participating in activities such as governance or mini-games. You can also sacrifice an Aavegotchi to get back the aTokens linked to him, but also to transfer part of his experience to another Aavegotchi.

As he gains experience, an Aavegotchi will increase his level. During certain level gains that have yet to be defined, you will get points that will allow you to improve some of your companion’s character traits. Also, certain equipment can only be worn by ghosts of a certain level.

Tribe

The Aavegotchi do not come alone on Bitcoin Bank Scam, but as a tribe. A tribe represents a group of a certain number of Aavegotchi (10,000 for the first tribe), defined by the DAO. Some facilities would be specific to a particular tribe for example.

Equipment

Equipment is the best way to personalise your digital companions. Each Aavegotchi can wear different equipment, each of which has a specific level of rarity and sometimes limitations (types of aTokens, ghost level, tribe or character trait). Here are the different types of equipment that exist at launch :

  • Headgear ;
  • Face;
  • Eye accessory;
  • Shoes;
  • Hands right/left;
  • Companion.

Each piece of equipment has a rarity: Common, Unusual, Rare, Legendary, Mythical and Divine.

How to define the value of an Aavegotchi?

The rarity and the value of an Aavegotchi are determined by two main notions: the intrinsic value of its aTokens and its rarity score. Indeed, if the ghost is linked to 300 aDai, it is possible to deduce that its value is at least that of these aDai.

The score of rarity as for him as for him is determined by the power of the features of the ghost and the rarity of the equipment which it has. This score is obviously not fixed, since the Aavegotchi can evolve over time and the equipment can be changed.

It is important to know that the rarest Aavegotchi in the ecosystem will be rewarded with a part of the GHST used by the users during invocations. Thus, some ghost owners will be able to set up double passive income strategies with their companions. On the one hand the returns from the aTokens owned and on the other hand the recuperation of these GHSTs.

The two tokens of the project: Ghost and FRENS

The Aavegotchi project revolves around two different tokens, the main one : GHST and another token dedicated to equipment, the FRENS.

The GHST is the main token of the ecosystem. It allows the purchase of Aavegotchi invocation portals, equipment and other consumables (ghost food for example). Blocking them on the protocol will also make it possible to obtain virtual plots of this universe.

The FRENS, for its part, has a more secondary role. Today, its only utility is the purchase of lottery tickets, allowing us to get a sneak preview of equipment for our future companions. A way of rewarding the first players.

There will be 3 lotteries by the time the protocol mainnet is released, and FRENS are already available. Note that FRENS are not exchangeable, but the lottery tickets are exchangeable NFTs.

Getting GHSTs and FRENS

The GHST is the token dedicated to the use of the Aavegotchi ecosystem. It is necessary to summon new ghosts and will be used during exchanges between players, so how to get it?

The first phase of distribution of the GHST was quite classic, a private sale for 5 million GHST at the unit price of 0.05 Dai/GHST. This was followed by an open pre-sale, distributing 500,000 GHST at the unit price of 0.1 Dai/GHST.

Nowadays, if you wish to obtain GHST, you will have to buy them on exchanges (Uniswap, OKEx…) or use the „Bounding Curve“. This is a distribution of tokens at a mathematically fixed price, the more tokens in circulation, the higher the price and vice versa. It can also be obtained through tournaments, participation in governance or by owning the rarest Aavegotchi.

As for the FRENS, it has no fiduciary value and cannot be purchased from other users. Indeed, FRENS are linked to the person who obtains them. In order to obtain them, it is sufficient to staker GHSTs on the protocol, or to provide liquidity to the Uniswap GHST/ETH pool. Each GHST staked on Aavegotchi earns 1 FRENS per day, compared to 100 for the GHST/ETH LP tokens.

Invoking Aavegotchi

It is necessary to have one or more ghostly companions to take full advantage of the protocol. Indeed, it is with them that you will be able to play mini-games, take part in the governance or show off all your rare equipment in the Aavegotchi 2D openworld. But how to get these famous ghosts and how much would it cost us?

The main tool to get an Aavegotchi is the portals. These are the source of ghost creation and it will be necessary to use one to get one. Opening a portal allows you to obtain an assortment of ten random Aavegotchis, from which you will have to select the one that suits you best.

Each one will have different character traits, but also a specific number and type of aToken, which you will need to provide to obtain it. There is a defined number of portals per Aavegotchi tribe, e.g. the first tribe will have 10,000 portals when the protocol is launched.

Note that it is possible to simply buy, keep and collect portals to resell them in the future!

Aavegotchi Realms, mini-games and CAD

Aavegotchi Realms is the virtual world in which our virtual companions live. It will be accessible by browser, in the form of a 2D world, seen from above/3 quarters. It is here that our Aavegotchis will be able to interact with others, participate in mini-games and tournaments, as well as governance through CAD.

It will be possible to staker GHSTs in the same way as for obtaining FRENS, but to obtain plots of land from Realms (the REALMs). Each plot will be visible to other players and will be customisable by the owner.

The mini-games will be accessible to everyone on the Realms. Winning mini-games will not only improve your Aavegotchis, but will also be a potential source of income! Indeed, the winner will win the interests of the loser’s spiritual spirit. If you had a spiritual spirit of 250 Dai and 3.60 Dai interest, these are distributed to your winning opponent.

The mini-games will be varied, from basic random to more complex games requiring strategies. The particular traits of the ghosts will influence their abilities (a crafty Aavegotchi will perform better in the ring than a cake maker).

Finally, CAD will also be a point of interest in Realms, since it is here that the future of Aavegotchi will be drawn. Different versions of the CAD will follow one another, giving users more and more powers (and rewards) over the management of the ecosystem. But where the project stands out is above all with virtual CAD, in the Habbo style. Pixelated discussions in real time where everyone can defend their proposals. You will be able to influence the game by proposing new mini-games, tribes of Aavegotchis or future equipment for example.

What is available to users today?

The project is under development and it is not tomorrow that you will be able to interact with your ghost companions. But the team and the community have been very active since the beginning of Aavegotchi last August. So, you can preview the features under development on Ethereum testnets and give your opinion.

Concretely, you can only get the two tokens of the project (buy the GHST and the staker to get FRENS) at the time I write these lines. You can also take part in community missions to obtain special equipment at the launch. On the testnet side, the portals and the Aavegotchi invocation are available, a practical way to discover how they work.

So much for this presentation of the Aavegotchi project, one of the rare projects that wishes to combine the best of DeFi and NFTs. Will you answer the call of these ghosts, sorts of virtual Tamagotchis boosted with hormones? If you wish to go further in your discovery of the project, you can find the Community Discord and different ways to learn more while winning rewards. If you have any further questions, feel free to post a comment or contact me on the social networks!

Hvorfor kryptosamfunn er forvirret av PayPal’s Bitcoin- og Ethereum-beskrivelser

PayPal, betalingskonglomeratet, integrerte kryptokjøp i oktober 2020 og tjente ros fra kryptovaluta-samfunnet. Men bransjeledere og kryptoinvestorer er forvirrede selskapets beskrivelser av Bitcoin, Ethereum og Litecoin.

Hvordan beskrev PayPal Bitcoin og andre store kryptoaktiva?

Selv om PayPal-beskrivelsene av store kryptoaktiva ikke er feil, pekte bransjeledere på den vanskelige formuleringen av beskrivelsene. Som et eksempel beskrev PayPal Bitcoin som:

“Bitcoin (BTC) introduserte innovasjoner som viste at krypto en dag kunne være like vanlig som kontanter og kreditt. Det startet en revolusjon som siden har inspirert tusenvis av varianter på originalen. En dag snart kan du kanskje kjøpe omtrent hva som helst og sende penger til alle som bruker bitcoins og andre kryptovalutaer. ”

Beskrivelsen hadde ingen omtale av at Bitcoin ble brukt som en butikk av verdi, noe som har blitt den viktigste brukssaken de siste årene. Det forklarer ikke at BTC er en desentralisert kryptokurrency med soppbarhet og transportabilitet, usannsynlig andre trygge eiendeler og butikker på dalen.

OnChainFX-skaperen Dan McArdle, som opprinnelig delte beskrivelsene av topp kryptovalutaer av PayPal, skrev:

Beskrivelsene av Ethereum, Litecoin og Bitcoin Cash hadde alle en lignende tone. PayPal prøvde tilsynelatende å formulere det på en enkel måte som alle, inkludert personer som aldri har hørt om Bitcoin før, ville forstå.

Noen brukere sa at den enkle tilnærmingen til PayPal for å forklare kryptovalutaer i den mest grunnleggende forstand, kunne være nyttig.

En pseudonym bruker sa at til tross for mangelen på dybde i beskrivelsene, ville de kanskje appellere til mainstream bedre. Brukeren oppga:

„Selv om disse beskrivelsene mangler reell dybde eller innsikt i hvilken krypto det generelt eller noen av valutaene spesifikt, bryr den gjennomsnittlige personen seg egentlig ikke, og det er sannsynligvis bedre.“

I motsetning til dette, Cash App, som et eksempel, som behandlet $ 1,63 milliarder dollar i Bitcoin-salg i tredje kvartal 2020, understreket de tekniske spesifikasjonene til BTC i beskrivelsen.

Square’s Cash App la vekt på kryptografi, kryptovaluta, desentralisering og peer-to-peer-teknologi i beskrivelsen av Bitcoin. Cash-appens „Hva er Bitcoin“ -side lyder:

“Bitcoin er det første og mest kjente eksemplet på en ny type penger som kalles en“ kryptovaluta. ”Den skaper, holder og overfører verdi ved hjelp av kryptografiske ligninger og koder for å sikre at transaksjoner bare kan fullføres en gang. En av Bitcoins viktigste egenskaper er at den er desentralisert ved hjelp av peer-to-peer-teknologi, noe som betyr at ingen institusjoner kan kontrollere Bitcoin-nettverket.

PayPal’s streif i krypto er likevel optimistisk

PayPal er verdsatt til 221 milliarder dollar fra og med 13. november 2020. Når et så stort finansielt konglomerat integrerer kryptovalutaer, noe det ikke har gjort før i denne skalaen, ville det uunngåelig være komponenter å forbedre.

Ikke desto mindre er PayPal integrering av kryptokjøp og store kryptovalutaer, som Bitcoin, generelt optimistisk for sektoren. Etter PayPal-integrasjonen økte etterspørsel etter institusjon og detaljhandel etter kryptokurver merkbart, og løftet det generelle markedssentimentet.

Ticket sales via blockchain: Ajax Amsterdam has new partners

Ajax Amsterdam appoints SecuTix and TIXnGO as new technology partners and will use the blockchain to sell tickets in the future.

The sale of tickets on the black market has always been a thorn in the side of the organizers

In the meantime, a procedure has been used by means of blockchain technology to prevent such activities. The illegal forging of tickets has also become virtually impossible thanks to blockchain. One of the major events that rely on blockchain ticket sales should be the 2020 European Football Championship , which, as we all know, has now been postponed by one year to 2021. Previously there was already a successful test of ticket sales by the Dutch Football Association .

A message fits in this contextof the Dutch football club Ajax Amsterdam. The association has the cloud-based ticket solution SecuTix and its brand TIXnGO, the secure mobile ticket exchange, has been appointed as the association’s new technology partner. As part of this agreement, Ajax will also become a development partner of the SecuTix 360 ° SaaS ticketing platform and works on new functions especially for the sports sector.

The Dutch professional football club started selling tickets via TIXnGO in summer 2020. A series of pilot events allowed a limited number of domestic fans to return to the Johan Cruyff Arena. The test was quite promising. As a result, 10,000 fans were able to purchase their tickets for the game on September 20 using the mobile TIXnGO ticket exchange.

Use of the blockchain also in healthcare

TIXnGO has already been used to sell tickets at other sporting events. For example in England, where the Lancashire County Cricket Club announced that it would use the blockchain app in January this year. For example, fans can purchase cell phone tickets for all national and international matches in 2020 on his home ground at Emirates Old Trafford. The club successfully tested the platform in the 2019 season.

While sports and other event organizers around the world are suffering from the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, TIXnGO has recognized the potential of the blockchain for the healthcare sector as well. Health n Go was launched in May 2020 . This is an app for mobile health certificates that enables people who have become immune to be identified using digital certificates. Instead of storing the sensitive test results in a blockchain, they are encrypted and stored on the user’s smartphone. The blockchain is only used to verify the results.

The results of the Health n Go test phase were carried out together with the Swiss laboratory network Medisupport and the railway equipment supplier Mitisa. The first test phase was according to media reports recently concluded with seemingly encouraging results.

Mineiros de bitcoin chineses não podem pagar empresas de energia, já que o governo congela cartões bancários

Os mineiros de Bitcoin chineses estão enfrentando dificuldades para pagar suas contas de eletricidade. O motivo é que o governo está congelando as contas associadas à criptomoeda.

O ataque contínuo à lavagem de dinheiro nas telecomunicações chinesas e na indústria de criptografia fez com que os mineradores de Bitcoin Era enfrentassem dificuldades para pagar contas de eletricidade enquanto os bancos congelavam os cartões associados às transações de criptomoedas.

Três quartos dos mineradores de Bitcoin chineses não podem pagar pela eletricidade

De acordo com uma agência de notícias local, em um tópico de tweet em 16 de novembro de 2020, os mineiros chineses estavam tendo dificuldades para pagar as contas de eletricidade. A agência conseguiu pesquisar 74% dos mineiros de Bitcoin na China, que revelaram que enfrentam tais problemas.

A dificuldade em pagar as contas de luz foi resultado da onda de congelamento de cartões vivida na China. No início de 2020, o governo da China adotou uma abordagem mais drástica para combater a lavagem de dinheiro e atividades ilegais, visando especificamente os setores de criptomoeda e finanças.

Enquanto outros participantes chineses da criptografia podem manter seus ativos em stablecoins em vez do yuan, as mineradoras precisam ter acesso ao RMB para pagamentos de contas e outras despesas operacionais. Essa falta de acesso ao fiat é mais um empecilho para os mineiros de Bitcoin no país, além de outros problemas como enchentes sazonais, falta de abastecimento devido ao COVID-19, entre outros.

Após a redução para metade de maio de 2020, a recompensa do bloco passou a ser de 6,25 BTC, uma redução de 50% em relação aos subsídios ganhos nos últimos quatro anos. Com os ganhos reduzidos por bloco, as operações de mineração estão supostamente buscando maior eficiência para compensar a queda na receita.

O Hash Power irá migrar para fora da China?

Embora a China ainda seja o país líder em termos de taxa global de hash de bitcoin, o mais recente desenvolvimento do país pode fazer com que os mineiros locais migrem para regiões mais favoráveis. De acordo com dados do Cambridge Bitcoin Electricity Consumption Index (CBECI), a China lidera o setor de mineração BTC com 65,08%, com os EUA e a Rússia em segundo e terceiro lugares, respectivamente, com 7,24% e 6,90%.

Conforme relatado pelo CryptoPotato em junho, a taxa de hash do BTC dos EUA aumentou 78,33% entre setembro de 2019 e abril de 2020. Enquanto isso, a China experimentou uma queda no mesmo período.

Enquanto as mineradoras chinesas estão tendo dificuldade para pagar as contas de eletricidade, a Rússia pode legalizar a mineração BTC. Em setembro, surgiram relatórios de que o Ministério das Finanças da Rússia estava considerando autorizar a mineração de bitcoin no país.

Bitcoin ultrapassa US$ 14.000 no dia das eleições, um aumento de 1.900% em relação a 2016

O preço do Bitcoin subiu mais de 2% em duas horas à medida que os trabalhadores das pesquisas nos Estados Unidos começaram a contar as cédulas.

O preço do Bitcoin (BTC) subiu mais de 2% em duas horas, para um breve aumento de US$ 14.000, pois as pesquisas estavam começando a fechar em muitos estados dos EUA em 3 de novembro. No momento em que foi escrito, o preço estava logo abaixo da marca chave.

Hoje é dia de eleições nos Estados Unidos e muitos líderes criptográficos estão prevendo que Bitcoin poderia ser o grande vencedor em uma corrida altamente controversa. No momento da publicação, as autoridades já contaram mais de 400.000 cédulas.

A Bitcoin só esteve presente em duas eleições presidenciais nos Estados Unidos, mas o preço aumentou significativamente a cada corrida sucessiva. Em novembro de 2012, 1 BTC foi avaliado em cerca de US$ 12, enquanto em 2016 o preço foi superior a US$ 700. Com a moeda atingindo agora $14.309 na época da publicação, representa um aumento de 1.900% em quatro anos, ou cerca de 140.000% em oito anos.

Esta é a segunda vez que a BTC atinge o pico acima da barreira de 14.000 dólares em apenas uma semana, com o influente The Crypto Lark observando que a vela diária tinha acabado de fechar acima de 14.000 dólares pela primeira vez desde janeiro de 2018.

Fatores não políticos, incluindo o aumento do interesse institucional e a decisão do PayPal de oferecer serviços criptográficos, podem explicar o aumento do preço. O engajamento nas mídias sociais também aumentou este mês.

De acordo com a plataforma de análise The Tie’s weekly report, o volume de tweets que mencionam o Bitcoin aumentou 15% em outubro, chegando a 835.000. O Tie informou que a BTC obteve retornos positivos de 30% em outubro, em comparação com os 10% de retorno sobre o Ether (ETH).

Como os votos continuam a ser contados em todos os EUA, muitos estão prevendo a volatilidade entre as moedas criptográficas e o mercado de ações.

AP News publica os resultados das eleições presidenciais americanas na cadeia de bloqueios

O uso de tecnologias baseadas em cadeias de bloqueios fornece um registro seguro e sem falhas dos resultados de cada estado à medida que eles chegam.

A agência de notícias Associated Press tem publicado os resultados das eleições presidenciais de 3 de novembro nos blocos Ethereum e EOS.

Como observado na página do desenvolvedor que detalha como acessar seu AP Elections API, os resultados estão sendo imutavelmente escritos para a cadeia de bloqueio pelo software OraQle da Everipedia.

Embora os resultados também estejam sendo naturalmente publicados no site da AP, o uso da Everipedia baseada em cadeias de bloqueios fornece um registro permanente e sem falhas das chamadas para cada estado à medida que elas chegam.

A AP também lançou o endereço do contrato inteligente Ethereum, permitindo que os leitores usem exploradores de blocos como o Etherscan para acompanhar os resultados à medida que chegam.

Entretanto, uma versão mais acessível dos resultados, compilando os resultados de todos os estados chamados até agora, está disponível através da conta EOS da AP no Bloks.io.

A eleição americana de 2020 é uma das mais controversas em décadas, com os resultados indo até o arame nos principais estados do campo de batalha. Quase 100 milhões de votos foram emitidos cedo, seja pelo correio ou pessoalmente, devido à pandemia do coronavírus, para desgosto do presidente em exercício Donald Trump.

O mundo da moeda criptográfica está ansioso para saber quem será o próximo presidente dos EUA e o efeito que isso terá sobre os mercados.

Entretanto, pode levar dias ou até mesmo semanas até que um veredicto final seja dado, com Trump já fazendo alegações infundadas de fraude e ameaçando lançar um desafio à Suprema Corte, apesar de ainda haver milhões de votos para contar.

Coinbase unterstützt jetzt offiziell umhüllte Bitcoin

Der Krypto-Währungsumtausch Coinbase unterstützt nun offiziell Wrapped Bitcoin (WBTC) auf Coinbase.com und in den Coinbase Android- und iOS-Apps, teilte der Umtausch mit.

Die Benutzer der Börse kaufen, verkaufen oder speichern WBTC jetzt auf der Plattform. Die neue Anlage ist in allen von Coinbase unterstützten Regionen verfügbar, mit Ausnahme des Bundesstaates New York.
Wrapped Bitcoin (WBTC) ist ein ERC-20-Token, der als Analogie zu Bitcoin (EXANTE: Bitcoin) im Ethereum-Blockchain-Netzwerk entwickelt wurde.

Anfang Oktober kündigte Coinbase eine finanzielle Unterstützung von zwei Bitcoin Future (EXANTE: Bitcoin) Kernentwicklern als Teil seines Crypto Community Fund an.

Es ist zwar nicht klar, wer die Finanzierung erhalten wird, und auch der Umfang der Förderung selbst ist nicht klar, aber die in den USA ansässige Krypto-Handelsplattform will wachsen und den gesamten Markt für digitale Vermögenswerte verbessern und gleichzeitig die Nutzung einfacher und sicherer für alle machen.

Im August kündigte BitGo, ein Treuhand- und Sicherheitsunternehmen für digitale Vermögenswerte, Pläne zur Einführung einer eigenen Version des Ethereum-Netzwerks für das WBTC an.

Ben Chan, CTO von BitGo, sagte, dass BitGo versuche, mit Partnern aus der Gemeinschaft Kontakt aufzunehmen, um eine Ethereum-Seitenkette zu entwickeln, da die Gebühren, die angeblich durch das Tether (USDT) ausgelöst werden, sehr hoch seien. Es ist unklar, ob BitGo bisher noch an dem Plan festhält. BitGo sichert sich zum Zeitpunkt der Drucklegung über 45.000 WBTC im Wert von mehr als 550 Millionen Dollar.

Curve Dao (CRV) token shows signs of life after historic bottom

The CRV price hit a new low as of date.

The price evolves within a descending wedge.

There are signs of a bullish reversal

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

The Curve Dao (CRV) hit an all-time low and started to rebound slightly.

While there are signs of a bullish reversal, they are not yet sufficient to confirm a trend reversal.

CRV hits historic low

The CRV price has been declining since August 25, when it peaked at $ 23.25. On October 7, the price hit its all-time high at $ 0.045 and created a long lower wick before rising slightly. Price then posted another lower wick, with a bullish close the next day.

Although the RSI is oversold, it has not yet generated the slightest bullish divergence, which would be a strong sign of a rise in the price.

A logarithmic graph is used in order to best display the large fluctuations in the price

Crypto trader @ Mesawine1 shared a CRV chart showing the price is approaching the support line of a descending channel.

Further observation shows that the pattern looks more like a downward bevel than a channel.

As in the daily chart, the RSI is oversold and is now found rising. It didn’t generate any bullish divergence, however, as the MACD turned positive.

However, the ambiguity in the diagram as well as the lack of clear signs, combined with the fact that the price is moving practically to its minimum level to date sow doubts as to a possible advance.

While this is still very possible, there aren’t enough signs that a breakthrough will take place.

If the price does manage to pass its resistance, the next ones will be at $ 2.10 and $ 2.90. The $ 2.10 area also coincides with the top of the bevel.

In the event of a passage of the first resistance but an inability of the price to reach these following zones, this would indicate that the advance was a retracement. The CRV should then go down and generate a new historical bottom.

In conclusion, although it is possible that the price of CRV exceeds its descending wedge, there is no definitive sign that confirms such an action.

Bitcoin-Preis sinkt nach Trumpf-Anzeigen

Nach verschiedenen Beratungen zwischen der Regierung der Vereinigten Staaten und ihrer politischen Opposition beschloss Präsident Donald Trump, jegliche Diskussion über einen zweiten Wirtschaftsimpuls zu verschieben.

Alles bis nach den Präsidentschaftswahlen am 3. November. Dies scheint sich auf die BTC ausgewirkt zu haben. Seitdem ist der Preis von Bitcoin nach diesen Ankündigungen gestern gefallen.

Die Nachricht wurde in einer Reihe von Tweets aus dem Konto des Präsidenten veröffentlicht. Minuten später reagierten die Märkte schnell: Wie der Dow Jones, der die Sitzung mit einem Minus von 375 Punkten beendete. Fallend zur gleichen Zeit wie die Bitcoin Code die gestern ihren Tiefststand von 10.528 USD erreichte.

Laut dem Tweet von Präsident Trump fordert Nancy Pelosi 2,4 Milliarden Dollar zur Rettung „schlecht geführter demokratischer Staaten mit hoher Kriminalität, Situationen, die nichts mit der COVID-19-Pandemie zu tun haben“.

In dem Tweet heißt es auch, dass die Regierung 1,6 Milliarden Dollar anbietet und behauptet, es handele sich um ein großzügiges Angebot und Pelosi verhandle nicht in gutem Glauben. In der Zwischenzeit muss die Präsidentschaft den Blick auf die Zukunft der Vereinigten Staaten richten.

All diese Kontroversen finden statt, während Präsident Trump sich von seiner Coronavirus-Infektion erholt.

Nun ist der Preis von Bitcoin gefallen. Was darauf hinzudeuten scheint, dass der Preis des Vermögenswerts immer noch im Gleichschritt mit den konventionellen Märkten reagiert. Zumindest was die wichtigsten Finanznachrichten betrifft.

Laut unserem Online-Kryptotool liegt der Preis von Bitcoin zum Zeitpunkt der Erstellung dieses Artikels bei etwa 10.600 USD.
Abra’s CEO sagt, er sei optimistischer denn je über den Preis von Bitcoin

Der Mitbegründer und CEO eines der bekanntesten Unternehmen von Bitcoin (BTC) hat enthüllt, dass dies die beste Zeit ist, die er seit fünf Jahren mit dem wichtigsten Kryptomoney hatte.

In einer Reihe von Tweets am 6. Oktober twitterte Bill Barhydt, der CEO des Abra-Zahlungsportals. Er hob eine Reihe von Indikatoren hervor, die darauf hindeuten, dass der Preis von Bitcoin steigt.

„Ich war noch nie so begeistert von dem Potenzial für #Bitcoin, den Preis kurzfristig (weniger als 18 Monate) signifikant zu erhöhen“, sagte er.

Bitcoin hat die letzten Wochen in einem Muster der Konsolidierung verbracht, nachdem es einen Höchststand von 12.500 $ erreicht hatte. Während die kurzfristigen Preisaussichten Analysten nicht überzeugend erscheinen. Andere sagen, dass die Grundlagen und das langfristige Verhalten des Netzwerks so optimistisch sind wie eh und je.

Für Barhydt gibt jedoch selbst der aktuelle Bestand Anlass zu Optimismus.

KuCoin setzt Einzahlungen, Abhebungen von BTC und Ether wieder ein

In einem Update des Dienstes sagte die auf den Seychellen basierende Plattform KuCoin, dass sie wieder einmal Ein- und Auszahlungen von Bitcoin (BTC), Ether (ETH) und der stabilen Währung Tether (USDT) erlaubt. Nach der Aktualisierung der Brieftaschensicherheit für diese Krypto-Währungen.

KuCoin bemerkte, dass die Brieftaschenadressen für diese Währungen aktualisiert worden seien. Und während die älteren Adressen noch funktionieren, empfahl er den Benutzern, sie zu aktualisieren.

Nach dem Bruch. Bei dem Diebstahl von 281 Millionen Dollar in verschiedenen kryptografischen Vermögenswerten wie XRP- und Ethereum-basierten Münzen war KuCoin dazu übergegangen, alle Brieftaschen einzufrieren und die Dienste zu deaktivieren.

Am 3. Oktober sagte der Vorstandsvorsitzende des Unternehmens, Johnny Lyu, dass die mutmaßlichen Hacker aufgespürt und den Strafverfolgungsbehörden gemeldet worden seien.

Lyu erklärte ferner, dass weitere 64 Millionen Dollar an gestohlenen Krypto-Währungen wiedergefunden worden seien, so dass sich der Gesamtwert der wiedergefundenen Vermögenswerte zu diesem Zeitpunkt auf 204 Millionen Dollar belief.

 

Bitcoin-pris faller til $ 10,525 når aksjer også faller (Market Watch)

$ 10 milliarder dollar borte fra kryptomarkedet da Bitcoin og den mest alternative mynten er dypt i rødt. BTC har igjen fulgt Wall Street.

Bitcoin har ikke klart å opprettholde sin nylige bullish løp og har falt til omtrent $ 10 600. De fleste alternative mynter har etterlignet BTCs trekk, noe som resulterte i et tap på 10 milliarder dollar fra den totale markedsverdi.

Bitcoin mislykkes med $ 10 800

Som rapportert i går, hadde Bitcoin Revolution reagert positivt på nyheter om at USAs president Donald Trump forlot sykehuset etter noen dager og returnerte til Det hvite hus. Den primære kryptovalutaen, som kopierte gevinster på Wall Street, akselererte i pris og nådde en topp på $ 10 800.

Situasjonen har imidlertid snudd det siste døgnet. Bitcoin klarte ikke å opprettholde sin løp og falt kraftig fra $ 10 750 til et lavt intradag på $ 10 525 (på Binance). Til tross for å ha gjenopprettet noe grunnlag siden da til over $ 10 600, er BTC fortsatt nede med over 1% på en dag.

Med flyttingen sørover har Bitcoin igjen lignet prisutviklingen på Wall Street. De tre mest fremtredende amerikanske aksjemarkedsindeksene avsluttet tirsdagens handelsøkt i rødt.

Dow Jones Industrial Average og S&P 500 gikk ned med omtrent 1,4%, mens Nasdaq mistet nesten 1,6%.

Altcoins Følg Bitcoin, Market Cap Losses $ 10B

Rødt dominerer altcoinmarkedet ettersom de fleste mynter har fulgt Bitcoin på vei ned. Ethereum har tanket med omtrent 4% og handler under $ 340.

Etter noen dager med imponerende prisytelse, har Ripple også mistet en betydelig mengde verdi (5,3%). XRP har dyppet til $ 0,245.

Bitcoin Cash (-1%) har utnyttet 5% BNB-dump og har tatt 5. plass. Polkadot (-8%) og Chainlink (-9%) er de viktigste taperne fra topp 10.

Ytterligere tap er tydelig fra altcoins med lavere og mid cap. Ocean Protocol (-20%) fører denne ugunstige rangeringen. Elrond (-19%), Aave (-18%), Yearn.Finance (-17%), The Midas Touch Gold (-16%), Solana (-15%), Uniswap (-15%), Uma (- 14%), Kusama (-14%) og Balancer (-14%) er bare en del av de tosifrede representantene for prisfall.

Med så mye rødt spredt over feltet, har den totale markedsverdien følt konsekvensene. Den kumulative markedsverdien av alle kryptovalutaer har stupt fra 342 milliarder dollar til 332 milliarder dollar.

Waarom een aanval van de staat op Bitcoin niet waarschijnlijk is, of waarschijnlijk zal slagen

Nu bitcoin (BTC) zich profileert als een alternatieve opslagplaats van waarde, groeit de vrees dat overheden op een dag gemotiveerd zullen zijn om te proberen het af te breken.

Leden van de Bitcoin-gemeenschap brainstormen de laatste tijd over scenario’s met theoretische overheidsoffensieven tegen de populaire cryptoasset, variërend van op verkeerde informatie gebaseerde strategieën tot verboden en zelfs klassieke 51%-aanvallen.

Echter, cijfers uit de industrie hebben Cryptonews.com verteld dat zij geloven dat de kans op een ernstige aanval van de staat op het Bitcoin-netwerk laag is.

Zelfs als een overheid (of twee) gemotiveerd zou zijn om de populaire cryptoasset aan te vallen, zeggen de experts dat het decentrale karakter ervan het netwerk kan beschermen tegen ernstige gevolgen, waardoor het verbod kan worden omzeild en zelfs na een poging tot een 51%-aanval kan blijven functioneren.

De „klassieke“ 51%-aanval

Begin augustus vroeg Bitcoin-ontwikkelaar Matt Odell zijn Twitter-aanhangers zich voor te stellen hoe een staatsacteur BTC waarschijnlijk zou kunnen aanvallen.

Er waren drie belangrijke soorten antwoorden op de vraag. Prominente cryptoanalist en blogger Galgitron antwoordde door een link te plaatsen naar een blogpost in 2019 waar hij zijn theorieën uitlegde over hoe China „met succes Bitcoin zou kunnen aanvallen met een 51%-aanval“.

Hij stelde dat de Chinese regering in China gevestigde mijnbouwpools zou kunnen dwingen een 51%-aanval uit te voeren.

Hoewel dit theoretisch mogelijk is, zijn de meeste industriecijfers en deskundigen van mening dat het hoogst onwaarschijnlijk is.

OKEx CEO Jay Hao zegt,

„Ik denk dat Bitcoin nu het stadium en een niveau van computergebruik heeft bereikt waar het bijna onmogelijk is voor een natiestaat om het af te breken. Maar meer dan dat, er is echt geen stimulans om dit te doen.“

Jay Hao’s belangrijkste argument is dat het Bitcoin-netwerk gemakkelijk bestand is tegen elke vorm van 51%-aanval.

De OKEx-chef voegt daar nog aan toe,

„Wat zouden ze bereiken na het forceren van de ketting? Bitcoin-mijnwerkers gaan niet naar de nieuwe keten, ze zouden gewoon doorgaan met het ontginnen van de oude keten. De daders zouden ook onthuld worden en dat zou internationaal gezien zeer ernstige gevolgen hebben vanwege alle belangrijke belanghebbenden die nu betrokken zijn bij het Bitcoin-ecosysteem“

.

verboden, wetten, over-naleving

Een 51%-aanval lijkt ver weg, gezien de mogelijke fall-out. Een populair antwoord op de vraag van Odell – inclusief een suggestie van Odell zelf – omvat echter een combinatie van verboden, wetten en acties die een prohibitief hoge mate van (d.w.z. Know Your Customer [KYC]) naleving zouden opleggen.

Anderen zijn het er over eens dat regelgevings- en juridische stappen tegen bitcoin veel waarschijnlijker zijn dan een grootschaligere technische aanval.

Jiang Zhuoer, de CEO van de in China gevestigde mijnbouwpools BTC.TOP en B.TOP, opent,

„Ik geloof dat als een natiestaat bitcoin wil ’neerhalen‘, hij dat via wetten zou doen in plaats van een PoW [bewijs van werk] aanval.“

Dat gezegd hebbende, kunnen dergelijke wetten alleen (enigszins) het aantal mensen dat bitcoin gebruikt beperken, volgens Jay Hao.

Hij zegt,

„Er is ook geen enkele manier waarop landen mensen kunnen verbieden iets te bezitten dat censuurbestendig is en buiten de controle van de overheid valt. Regeringen kunnen bitcoin verbieden (en hebben dat ook gedaan). Maar dat weerhoudt mensen er niet van om het te gebruiken. Het maakt het natuurlijk wel moeilijker voor hen, maar het is technisch onmogelijk om bitcoin te verbieden“.

Risico’s op het gebied van informatie

Het derde meest voorkomende antwoord op Odell’s draad draaide om verkeerde informatie: Regeringen kunnen proberen de geloofwaardigheid van Bitcoin te ondermijnen, terwijl ze ook proberen verwarring en conflicten te zaaien binnen de gemeenschap van de cryptocentra.

Zoiets gebeurt al. Regeringen – en de mensen die ze besturen – spreken zich al lang uit tegen bitcoin en benadrukken (of overdrijven) de ergste aspecten ervan, terwijl ze de sterke kanten ervan onderbelichten.

Zelfs met deze halfregelmatige stroom van kritiek is meer systematische en substantiële misinformatie onwaarschijnlijk, vooral omdat het onwaarschijnlijk zou zijn dat het zou lukken.

Ten eerste zijn veel staten in feite minder bestand tegen bitcoin, ondanks de aanhoudende angsten van de gemeenschap. Dit is de mening van Tim Rainey, de CFO van de in New York gevestigde mijnbouwdienstverlener Greenidge Generation.

Rainey vertelt Cryptonews.com,

„Wij geloven dat de tijd dat grote staten zich verzetten tegen bitcoin al achter ons ligt en dat we ons nu in de fase bevinden waarin de regelgevers de potentiële voordelen van Bitcoin en andere blockchains zien, en werken aan het integreren ervan in bestaande regelgevingskaders of het creëren van nieuwe regelgeving voor hen.“

.
In feite zouden sommigen beweren dat er in feite al een informatieoorlog aan de gang is, die tot nu toe door veel van de mainstream media tegen bitcoin is gevoerd – met weinig duidelijk effect op de groei van de penning.

Dit komt deels omdat crypto een eigen, levendige mediasector heeft, die meer gespecialiseerde aandacht en commentaar biedt om de mainstream negativiteit in evenwicht te brengen.

De toekomst

Bitcoin zal in de toekomst waarschijnlijk meer aanvalsbestendig worden, zowel in technische als in sociale, politieke en economische zin.

Hao legt uit,

„Core Bitcoin-ontwikkelaars werken er voortdurend aan om het netwerk beter bestand te maken tegen een dergelijke aanval. Ze hebben onlangs de nieuwste Asmap-software uitgebracht om een natiestaataanval te verijdelen, hoewel het nog geen dwaze oplossing is“

.
Ook de concentratie in de mijnbouw neemt langzaam af, van 75% in Q3 2019 tot 65% in Q2 van FY2020, per Universiteit van Cambridge gegevens.

Dmitrii Ushakov, de CCO van de in Rusland gevestigde mijnbouwdienstverlener BitRiver, legt uit,

„Om de kans op een succesvolle staatsaanval te verkleinen, zou de hashrate van Bitcoin gelijkmatiger verdeeld moeten zijn over de wereld in verschillende nationale jurisdicties. Wij bij BitRiver werken hier al sinds 2017 naartoe.“

En naarmate meer mensen zich bij Bitcoin inkopen, zullen meer overheden afkerig worden van een aanval – uit angst voor het verstoren van gevestigde belangen, als het al niet anders kan.

Jay Hao concludeert,

„Bitcoin is zo gegroeid. Het heeft nu meerdere verschillende belanghebbenden, van particuliere beleggers en speculanten tot gigantische mijnbouwactiviteiten, grote technische bedrijven, traditionele betalingsbedrijven, banken en institutionele beleggers.
