Baleia bitcoin de 2010 movimenta 100 BTC pela primeira vez em 11 anos

Os analistas da Blockchain identificaram 100 BTC minerados em junho de 2010 que foram movimentados pela primeira vez hoje.

Um mineiro veterano abriu seu estoque de Bitcoin 2010

Um mineiro veterano abriu seu estoque de Bitcoin Code 2010, com os analistas de criptografia avistando 100 BTC sendo transferidos de duas carteiras que haviam ficado adormecidas por mais de uma década.

Antes da transação de hoje, os endereços não tinham visto nenhuma atividade desde que receberam uma recompensa de 50 BTC Coinbase cada um há quase 11 anos, exceto por duas transações de entrada no valor de apenas 0,00000547 BTC cada uma que foram enviadas para as carteiras nos últimos seis meses.

A transação de 25 de fevereiro combinou as duas saídas de endereços de mineração, indicando que ambos os endereços pertencem ao mesmo proprietário. Os dois blocos foram minerados com apenas algumas horas de intervalo em 10 de junho de 2010.

Bitcoin está sendo negociado atualmente por $49.800, dando às moedas um valor combinado de quase $5 milhões. Com o BTC negociando por $0,08 quando as moedas foram cunhadas, o valor das baleias aumentou em 622.500 vezes.

Algumas moedas antigas foram movimentadas hoje (100 BTC a partir de junho de 2010).

É muito raro ver as moedas de bitcoins da era pré-GPU se movimentarem, isso só aconteceu dezenas de vezes nos últimos anos.

E não, provavelmente não é Satoshi.

Que está em operação desde 2011

Cerca da metade das moedas foi movida para uma carteira pertencente ao Bitcoin.de, que está em operação desde 2011. Por enquanto, as moedas restantes estão sentadas em um endereço antigo recém-criado.

Altos trocados como Bitcoin Cash (BCH) e Bitcoin SV (BSV) ainda não foram descascados do BTC.

As moedas, cunhadas nos blocos 60365 e 60385, dificilmente pertencerão a Satoshi Nakamoto, que se sugere ter cunhado pelo menos 1,1 milhão de BTC.

O movimento das moedas da era 2010 é uma ocorrência incomum, com os pesquisadores identificando apenas 18 transações envolvendo BTC com entradas de julho de 2010 ou antes, em 2021, até agora.

Em maio de 2020, 50 Bitcoin se moveram de um endereço de mineração de 2009, desencadeando especulações animadas de que o BTC poderia ter pertencido à Satoshi.

Police seize Bitcoin for $ 70 million – but where is the password?

Many people value Bitcoin primarily because of its decentralization and the anonymity that goes with it.

A recent example from Germany once again makes it clear that this can also have disadvantages and dangers

The German police recently sentenced a man for installing malicious software on other computers, which then mined Bitcoin and transferred it to the hacker’s crypto wallet. Prosecutors confiscated over $ 70 million worth of Bitcoin. The only problem with the matter: Neither the police nor the public prosecutor’s office have access to the said Bitcoin.

Because the fraudster does not reveal the password of the wallet and thus deprives the confiscated Bitcoin of its value. He was sentenced to two years in prison. Public prosecutor Sebastian Murer told Reuters on February 5, 2021 :

We asked him for the password, but he didn’t tell us. Maybe he doesn’t know

The news agency also reported that the prosecution subsequently ensured that the convicted person no longer had access to the BTC wallet. Since the convicted person is very likely the only person to whom the access data is known, it can be assumed that the 1,700 BTC can be regarded as lost.

It’s not the first time Bitcoin has been lost. The New York Times published a current statistic from January 2021 in this regard. This shows that around 20 percent of all Bitcoin have already been lost. It happens again and again that people simply forget the passwords for their crypto walltes or can no longer find them. It was the same with Stefan Thomas, who owned over 7,000 Bitcoins before he lost access to his wallet. As of today (February 9, 2021), Bitcoin is worth over $ 300 million. BTC ECHO reported on the case at the time.

Bitcoin ahora vale la mitad de toda la plata del mundo

Con una capitalización de mercado de casi $ 780 mil millones, Bitcoin actualmente vale la mitad de toda la plata que se haya extraído. Según los datos de Infinite Market Cap, Bitcoin también ha superado a los gigantes tecnológicos Facebook, Tencent y Alibaba en términos de capitalización de mercado, así como a Berkshire Hathaway de Warren Buffett.

Facebook, Tencent y Alibaba destronados al reunir Bitcoin

El último repunte de Bitcoin ha empujado su precio más allá de los $ 40,000, ayudándolo a alcanzar su máximo histórico. Sin embargo, con la mayor parte del mundo ahora enfocada en el aumento de precios, la creciente capitalización de mercado de Bitcoin ha pasado desapercibida.

Con una capitalización de mercado de $ 779,85 mil millones, Bitcoin es el noveno activo más grande del mundo. La criptomoneda más grande del mundo ha superado a Facebook , cuya capitalización de mercado de $ 755 mil millones la convierte en el décimo activo más grande y la sexta compañía de tecnología más grande del mundo.

La compañía de tecnología china Tencent también se ubica por debajo de Bitcoin con una capitalización de mercado de poco más de $ 706 mil millones, mientras que el gigante mundial del comercio electrónico Alibaba ocupa el puesto 12 con una capitalización de mercado de $ 629,33 mil millones.

Bitcoin también ha superado a Berkshire Hathaway, la compañía de inversiones y participación más grande del mundo fundada por el inversionista multimillonario Warren Buffett. Según los datos de Infinite Market Cap, Berkshire Hathaway es el activo trece más grande del mundo con una capitalización de mercado de 547.000 millones de dólares.

La capitalización de mercado de Bitcoin es la mitad de toda la plata existente

Y aunque se necesitarán muchas más corridas alcistas para empujar a Bitcoin más allá del oro, su creciente capitalización de mercado se vuelve aún más impresionante en comparación con materias primas como la plata.

En su capitalización de mercado actual, Bitcoin vale la mitad de toda la plata del mundo. Según Infinite Market Cap, hasta ahora se han extraído 1,7 millones de toneladas métricas de plata, a un precio de alrededor de $ 26 por vez, lo que sitúa su capitalización de mercado en alrededor de $ 1,43 billones.

Incluso teniendo en cuenta el hecho de que el cálculo de la capitalización de mercado no tiene en cuenta la cantidad de plata que se ha perdido o destruido o la cantidad de bitcoins que han desaparecido para siempre, los datos solo solidifican aún más la posición de Bitcoin en el mercado.

Esto también significa que una vez que Bitcoin alcance un precio de $ 80,000, su capitalización de mercado será mayor que la capitalización de mercado actual de la plata.

TA: Bitcoin Bulls Keeps Pushing, Waarom $18.8K een Key Breakout Zone is

De Bitcoin prijs is meer dan 4% gestegen en het brak het $18.500 niveau ten opzichte van de US Dollar. BTC volgt momenteel een mooi stijgend pad, maar het $18.800 niveau is een sterke weerstand.

  • Bitcoin stijgt langzaam en het brak de sleutel tot $18.500 weerstand.
  • De prijs is gestegen tot $18.559 en ligt nu boven het 100 uur durende voortschrijdend gemiddelde.
  • Er vormt zich een belangrijk stijgend kanaal met ondersteuning in de buurt van $18,280 op de uurlijkse grafiek van het BTC/USD-paar (data feed van Kraken).
  • De stieren zullen waarschijnlijk een sterke weerstand ondervinden in de buurt van de $18.800 zone.

Bitcoin Prijs nadert een grote hindernis

In de wekelijkse analyse zagen we een nieuwe stijging van de Bitcoin Code prijs boven het $18.000 niveau. BTC breidde zijn stijging uit tot boven het $18.200 en $18.400 weerstandsniveau.

Er was ook een breuk boven de $18.500 weerstand. De prijs steeg tot $18.559 en ligt nu boven het 100 uur durende voortschrijdend gemiddelde. Het consolideert momenteel de winsten en handelt in de buurt van het $18.450 niveau.

Een eerste steun aan de onderkant is in de buurt van het $18.400 niveau. Het is dicht bij het 23,6% Fib retracement niveau van de recente stijging van de $17.946 schommeling laag naar $18.559 hoog. Bovendien is er een belangrijk stijgend kanaal dat zich vormt met steun in de buurt van $18.280 op de uurgrafiek van het BTC/USD-paar.

De channel support ligt dicht bij het 50% Fib retracement level van de recente stijging van de $17.946 swing low naar $18.559 high. Aan de andere kant is de kanaalweerstand bij $18.650 een weerstand op korte termijn.

De eerste grote weerstand voor de stieren ligt in de buurt van het $18.800 niveau. Een succesvolle doorbraak boven het $18.800 niveau zou een sterke opwaartse beweging kunnen veroorzaken, en de bitcoin zou boven de $19.000 en zelfs $19.200 kunnen stijgen.

Nog een Drop in BTC?

Als de bitcoin er niet in slaagt om de breakout weerstand bij $18.800 op te heffen, is er een risico op een nieuwe daling. Een eerste steun aan de onderkant is in de buurt van het $18.250 niveau of de trendlijn van het kanaal.

Een duidelijke doorbraak onder de kanaalsteun zou een langdurige daling naar $18.000 kunnen veroorzaken. De volgende grote steun onder het $18.000 niveau ligt in de buurt van het $17.400 niveau en het 100-uursgemiddelde.

Technische indicatoren:

Uurlijkse MACD – De MACD wint nu aan kracht in de bullish zone.
Uurlijkse RSI (Relative Strength Index) – De RSI voor BTC/USD ligt momenteel ruim boven het 60-niveau, met bullish signs.

Space Yacht brings NFT art to the electronic dance music scene

The coronavirus quarantines caused the organizer of the global event to take a new direction, launching a record label and selling digital art.

The international party brand Space Yacht is preparing to launch its second collection of non-expendable token artwork on the Nifty Gateway market on December 23rd.

Entitled „Space Yacht Iconography Collection“, the NFT presents three of the brand’s central themes: pizza, smiling faces and its trademark slogan, „WE ARE SO F☻CKED“.

The artwork also incorporates original music by Space Yacht co-founder Rami Perlman, also known as LondonBridge.

The original Pizza Day buyer does it again with the Bitcoin Lightning Network
12 months ago, Space Yacht was best known for organizing over 150 electronic dance music, or EDM, events worldwide each year. However, when the COVID-19 pandemic struck, the event industry virtually shut down.

The brand turned to the digital arena by launching a record label, signing up artists who would previously have opened at their events.

However, during the summer, Space Yacht launched its first NFT collection, a collaboration with renowned digital artist Goldweard. This became the best selling NFT in the Nifty Gateway market, with over 230 pieces sold in just 2 minutes and 28 seconds.

Dance music producer Guy J sold the first copyright token at 40 ETH
The brand hopes to replicate its success for the second time with the Iconography collection.

Perlman has been a collector of physical art for 15 years and sees digital art as a stimulating extension of this, and also as a potential new source of income for musicians and artists, he says:

„The more people get involved, the more viable it is for the future. We are confident Bitcoin Trader that NFT will become a force within the industry and a new way for digital musicians and artists to monetise their work.

Sean Ono Lennon sold an NFT artwork for $3,000 at Wrapped Ether
While pizza has long been revered in the world of cryptology, Space Yacht’s use of pizza as a theme pays tribute to a tradition that takes place at all of its live events, namely that the founders hand out free pizza on the dance floor at 1 AM.

Last week, electronic music producer and DJ deadmau5 and augmented reality designer Sutu sold their unique collaboration In Titan’s Light for 78 ETH, or almost USD 50,000 at current prices. Producer Guy J also jumped at blockchain, selling the rights to future broadcast royalties.

Finance Redefined: The Bitcoin Price Special at $20,000, December 9-16

Bitcoin DeFi, Bitcoin in Ethereum: We explore the ways DeFi and Bitcoin intertwine.

Today, the world of cryptomontages is celebrating Bitcoin’s new historical high. We did it, guys! We’re back at $20,000 after three grueling years.

So, for this reason, this will be a Bitcoin-themed newsletter. How does Bitcoin relate to DeFi? Well, for one thing, the total value locked in DeFi has a delta of about 0.2 with respect to the price of Bitcoin. This means that for every 1% that the price of BTC goes up or down, the total blocked value changes by 0.2%.

Most of that ratio is due to the peculiar accounting choice of considering BitGo’s Wrapped BTC as its own asset in DeFi, while counting all instances where WBTC is used in DeFi protocols. From a „natural“ value of USD 535 million, Bitcoin’s contribution to the total blocked value jumps to USD 2.9 billion, a pretty significant discrepancy, right?

But beyond the use of Bitcoin in Ethereum, there’s also the phenomenon of Bitcoin in DeFi. Now, the thing is that none of these are really „Bitcoin“ in DeFi, because Bitcoin simply doesn’t allow you to create the complex smart contracts needed to implement the real DeFi. The only project I know of of that kind is Atomic Loans. You offer Bitcoin as native collateral, but all the smart contracts are in Ethereum and your loan is disbursed there.

Bitcoin DeFi exists in RSK and Liquid, two Bitcoin „side chains“, independent block chains that use Bitcoin as their native currency. RSK also uses combined mining to validate its own string, resulting in a much closer link to the main string.

The problem is, of course, that since Bitcoin doesn’t have any smart contracts, the way for BTC to reach those „DeFi“ side chains is usually through custody and centralization. But recently we saw RSK push a solution that makes the bridge effectively DeFi-free, so I’m starting to warm up to seeing it as two sides of the same Bitcoin.

The Bitcoin summary in DeFi

RSK has definitely been active at the head of DeFi. This week, Sovryn launched a full range of products for DeFi at RSK. It is a combination of several basic components, including a loan protocol and an automated market maker exchange, or AMM. Like bZX’s Fulcrum, the combined range makes it easier to enter leveraged positions in Bitcoin Fast Profit without taking the manual steps you would have to take in, say, Compound.

Among the most interesting protocols in RSK we have TEX, a kind of mix between an AMM and an exchange order book. The mechanism is complex, but basically it settles orders every few minutes based on an average of all the limited orders sent. The exchange was launched by Dollar on Chain, the RSK Maker analog with some additional features.

On the side of Liquid, the side chain developed by Blockstream, there is less variety, although there is another interesting twist on the decentralized exchanges called TDEX. It uses atomic exchanges to make trades and allows complete control over the settlement price, unlike MMAs, where the price of the trade is not really known until the order is executed.

Bitcoin tokenized in Ethereum

The most popular type of Bitcoin in Ethereum is Wrapped Bitcoin, as I mentioned. Simply, BitGo (and supposedly other partners) take custody of Bitcoin that’s connected to Ethereum, and then they coin the corresponding WBTC tokens. Very similar to Tether or other centralized stablecoins, it feels like an output.

For a tokenized Bitcoin to be relevant, we must solve this annoying problem of relying on custodians to connect it to new strings.

The tBTC project is one of those trustless Bitcoin transition mechanisms. The project really embodies the principle of „making lemonade“ to the fullest. To avoid the limitations of the Bitcoin Smart Contracts, it allows anyone to become a „binding agent“ in charge of performing the conversions between Bitcoin and Ethereum. In case of any irregularities, users can claim the agent’s bond in Ethereum, which is over-guaranteed compared to the bridging amount.

As expected, tBTC’s bonding and slashing mechanism is quite complex and is probably stifling adoption, so this week tBTC teamed up with the exchange CoinList to provide an easier method of coining the token. That can also be interpreted as an excuse, but the key feature is that the system is still open to anyone, rather than being operated by a unique and well-defined set of validators.

Finally, there is RenBTC. While the team uses sophisticated words like „Shamir’s Secret Sharing“ and „Multi Party Computation“ to justify itself as a bridge protocol without trust and permission, Wanchain’s research seems to show that all the BTCs on his bridge are in one wallet, presumably controlled by the team. Wanchain is a competitor, so do with this what you want; I really don’t have the experience to corroborate this quickly.

In practice, Ren is definitely simple enough and without permission. So much so that DeFi hackers have now resorted to this to launder their profits. The most likely explanation I see is that the Bitcoin block chain is much harder to trace, and the mixing solutions are much more liquid than Ethereum’s Tornado Cash.

If Ren really is as centralized as it seems, it could foresee major problems if the computer continues to allow hackers to use it. The general rule of financial regulation is that if you can stop money laundering, it must be done, in a very forceful and proactive way. Still, individual cases of money laundering are not a big problem, as long as there is an acceptable anti-money laundering program in place.

Overall, Bitcoin may become the most promising avenue of expansion for DeFi. You simply can’t argue with its market capitalization of $383 billion. Whether it’s at Ethereum, at the Bitcoin side chains or elsewhere, DeFi would be a natural extension for Bitcoin as an asset.

JPMorgan analyst sees BTC at an advantage

Bitcoin as a gold substitute? – JPMorgan analyst sees BTC at an advantage

Bitcoin (BTC) and gold bars are more similar than expected. You can use them to protect your savings against inflation. On the picture you can see gold bars and Bitcoin coins.

Can Bitcoin replace gold? – This debate has been with us for several years. On the one hand, there are gold advocates like Peter Schiff and on the other hand, a multitude of investment bankers, managers and economists who confirm Bitcoin Evolution the narrative of Bitcoin as a gold substitute. In this article we look at the views of JPMorgan analyst Nikolaos Panigirtzoglou on Bitcoin and gold.

In his opinion, thanks to Bitcoin, the precious metal could now face years of downward spiral.

Bitcoin takes over gold shares in its portfolio

According to analyst Nikolaos Panigirtzoglou, a paradigm shift in the investment policy of large institutions and family offices is imminent.

According to the report, the growing acceptance of the crypto-currency Bitcoin (BTC) is increasingly leading institutional investors to invest part of their portfolios in Bitcoin. This, however, is happening to the detriment of gold, as the allocation to the precious metal is decreasing.

Nikolaos Panigirtzoglou works for the major American bank JPMorgan in the field of quantitative analysis. In his opinion, the „Bitcoin as digital gold“ narrative is becoming increasingly relevant. In his opinion, this leads to the fact that gold will probably lose the attention of investors over the coming years.

0.18% BTC in the portfolio of family offices

In portfolio management, a restructuring of existing portfolio shares is also known as reallocation.

This process is part of a sensible portfolio management and ensures a desired balance of the individual positions.

Now Panigirtzoglou takes up this aspect and says that on average only 0.18% of family office portfolios are invested in Bitcoin. This compares with a gold share of 3.3%. Taking this data as a starting point and assuming a small reallocation, this can provide a fundamental tailwind for the BTC price.

The JPMorgan analyst said

The adoption of Bitcoin by institutional investors has only just begun. For gold, however, the adoption is well advanced. If my assumption is correct in the medium to long term, the gold price would suffer massively from this change.

The fact is that companies such as Grayscale show impressively how high the demand for Bitcoin by institutional investors is. Big names like MicroStrategy, Paypal and Cash also attracted a lot of attention this year.

At the same time, despite recent corrections, Bitcoin is still trading steadily above $18,000 and is thus preparing for 2021.

House Financial Services Chair a Biden

House Financial Services Chair a Biden: Abrogazione delle regole di crittografia OCC

Il Rep. Maxine Waters vuole che le recenti linee guida criptate emesse dall’Ufficio del Controllore della valuta

  • La rappresentante Maxine Waters, presidente della Commissione per i servizi finanziari della Camera, ha inviato una lettera al Presidente eletto Joe Biden.
  • In essa, ha chiesto che l’Ufficio del Controllore della valuta (OCC) revochi diverse regole favorevoli all’adozione della crittovaluta.
  • L’OCC ha il compito di regolamentare le banche nazionali.

Mentre l’amministrazione Trump uscente cede il passo all’amministrazione Biden entrante, i legislatori di entrambi i partiti stanno inviando segnali Crypto Cash al presidente eletto sulle loro aspettative su tutto, dalle nomine politiche alle priorità legislative.

La quindicenne parlamentare Maxine Waters, che presiede la Commissione per i servizi finanziari della Camera, sta entrando in azione e la sua opinione potrebbe indicare la direzione delle future normative sulla crittovalutazione.

Trump a nominare l’ex Esec. Brooks a capo dell’OCC

Il presidente Trump ha annunciato oggi „l’intenzione di nominare“ Brian Brooks a capo dell’Ufficio del Controllore della valuta (OCC). Brooks, ex Chief Legal Officer di Coinbase, è stato…

In una lettera inviata oggi al Presidente eletto Biden, la presidente ha dichiarato: „Anche i funzionari da voi nominati presso l’Ufficio del Controllore della valuta (OCC) non devono presumere, come i loro predecessori, che un Congresso di legge approvato più di 150 anni fa dia loro in qualche modo l’autorità di fornire una carta bancaria nazionale a società non bancarie fintech o di pagamento“.

La Rep. Waters fa probabilmente riferimento al National Banking Act, che è diventato legge durante la guerra civile americana. La legge, che da allora è stata aggiornata, ha istituito l’OCC come ufficio indipendente del Tesoro che fornisce carte alle banche nazionali e le regolamenta; la legge ha contribuito a modernizzare il sistema bancario degli Stati Uniti.

Sotto la nomina di Obama, Thomas Curry, che ha ricoperto il ruolo di controllore dal mese di aprile 2012 al maggio 2017, l’OCC ha iniziato ad accettare le richieste per le carte bancarie nazionali di fintech. Anche il successore di Curry, Joseph Otting, che ha prestato servizio da novembre 2017 a maggio 2020, ha abbracciato tali carte per scopi speciali.

Questo sforzo si è riversato nel regno di Brian Brooks, che il Presidente Trump ha recentemente nominato per un mandato quinquennale (ma che il Rep. Waters non è chiaramente pronto a confermare). Sotto la guida di Brooks, ad esempio, l’OCC ha emanato una guida che prevede che le banche nazionali possano prendere in custodia i beni criptati dei clienti. Ha inoltre affermato che le banche nazionali possono detenere riserve di moneta stabile per i clienti.

La Rep. Waters ha raccomandato che entrambe le politiche siano revocate.

L’OCC ha inoltre proposto modifiche alle regole che impedirebbero alle banche nazionali di discriminare le imprese di servizi monetari, come le imprese di criptaggio, ma anche le compagnie petrolifere e del gas. Nella sua lettera, la Rep. Waters ha chiesto alla nuova leadership dell’OCC di „revocare prontamente“ questa regola proposta, che è fuori discussione.

Brooks è un ex dirigente di Coinbase che è stato criticato da altri membri del Congresso. A novembre, sei legislatori democratici – i rappresentanti Rashida Tlaib, Stephen Lynch, Jesús G. „Chuy“ García, Deb Haaland, Barbara Lee e Ayanna Pressley- hanno scritto una lettera ad Acting Comptroller Brooks, mettendo in discussione „l’eccessiva attenzione dell’OCC per le attività criptate e i servizi finanziari correlati alla criptazione“, in un momento in cui molti americani erano ancora in attesa di controlli di stimolo dal progetto di legge COVID-19.

Tre di questi legislatori – Lab, Lynch e García- hanno portato avanti il loro caso questa settimana, introducendo una legislazione che richiederebbe agli emittenti di stablecoin di ottenere carte bancarie.

Questo, unito alle recenti voci secondo cui il Tesoro avrebbe introdotto un’onerosa regolamentazione della cripto-valuta, ha alzato le sopracciglia all’interno dell’industria del cripto. Oggi, su CNBC, Brooks ha cercato di mettere la gente a proprio agio, dicendo: „Nessuno proibirà il Bitcoin“.

Questa è probabilmente una buona scommessa, a prescindere da chi farà il controllore della valuta quando Biden entrerà in carica.

¿Por qué los inversores apuestan por Bitcoin en un mundo post-COVID-19

El 2020 ha sido un año de incertidumbre. No sólo una pandemia derribó los mercados de todo el mundo, sino que el cripto-mercado tampoco fue inmune. Con el fin del año acercándose, parece que muchos inversores están teniendo un dilema diferente. Con el mercado comenzando a valorar los efectos de las vacunas COVID-19 de Pfizer y Moderna, muchos están confundidos sobre el comportamiento de ciertas clases de activos „seguros“.

Según un informe de Weiss Crypto Ratings, después de las noticias de Pfizer, el oro y los bonos del gobierno cayeron bruscamente después de que se deshicieran los temores sobre una incierta recuperación en un mundo post-pandémico.

Bitcoin, sin embargo, se mantuvo fuerte después de la noticia, subiendo de 17.000 a 19.000 dólares, antes de que las correcciones lo fijaran. De hecho, el precio de la cripto moneda se estaba consolidando alrededor de los 18.500 dólares, en el momento de escribir este artículo.

Cuando se evalúan las razones del rendimiento de Bitcoin en comparación con los Bonos del Tesoro y el oro, se debería considerar la inminente digitalización de las monedas fiduciarias.

Una vez que las monedas fiduciarias se digitalicen, el valor de los bonos del gobierno se puede inflar a una tasa mucho más rápida. Mientras que el valor del Oro puede estar más allá de la capacidad de influencia del gobierno, la propiedad a prueba de confiscación es difícil de lograr con un activo que no es fácil de almacenar, argumentó Weiss.

Por lo tanto, se puede argumentar que las criptas que se almacenan en cadenas de bloques descentralizadas y permiten un control completo y directo de los activos son la necesidad del momento.

Este es un sentimiento que está siendo cada vez más compartido por muchos a través de las industrias. De hecho, hace poco, Raoul Paul anunció que está vendiendo todo su oro para comprar BTC y ETH. Explicando la lógica detrás de su asignación del 80% de Bitcoin, dijo,

„Soy un tipo macro y sé lo mejor que he visto.“

Sin embargo, según el CEO de Europac, Peter Schiff, dentro de este debate, los criptoinversores que creen que toda la tesis de inversión de Bitcoin se basa en el hecho de que le quitará cuota de mercado al oro, están dispuestos a perder. Continuó diciendo que la escasez no es la única parte del argumento, añadiendo „Tiene que ser escasa, pero tiene que tener valor“.

De hecho, si Bitcoin alcanza su máximo suministro de 21 millones de unidades y no hay demanda en medio de la abundancia, Bitcoin será irrelevante.

Sin embargo, si nos guiamos por el sentimiento actual del mercado, hay razones para creer que la demanda de Bitcoin sólo va a aumentar a medida que demuestre ser un activo de gran rendimiento en un mundo post-COVID que se aproxima rápidamente.
