Analista do Bank of America critica Bitcoin: comprar 1 BTC é ‚como possuir 60 carros‘

Parece que 2017 ligou e quer sua condenação do Bitcoin de volta, com um analista do Bank of America reaquecendo algumas críticas de longa data ao BTC para seus clientes.

O analista do Bank of America, Francisco Blanch, classificou o Bitcoin como „excepcionalmente volátil“, „impraticável“ e um ativo ambientalmente desastroso que é inútil como reserva de riqueza ou proteção contra a inflação

Para uma boa medida, Blanch também afirmou que a criptomoeda é um método de pagamento impraticável, pois só pode lidar com 1.400 transações por hora, em comparação com os 236 milhões de transações processadas pela Visa.

O relatório – que ecoa a postura linha-dura adotada contra a criptografia por instituições financeiras tradicionais nos anos anteriores – está em total contraste com outros bancos importantes, como Goldman Sachs e JPMorgan, que desde então adotaram o Bitcoin como um ativo.

Contradizendo a noção de que a oferta fixa de Bitcoin de 21 milhões inevitavelmente impulsionará o crescimento dos preços ao longo do tempo, Blanch argumenta que o preço do BTC é impulsionado pela oferta e demanda – afirmando que, como a oferta é fixa, a flutuação da demanda é a única coisa que impulsiona o preço.

Blanch também rejeitou a ideia de que o Bitcoin é um ativo porto seguro. “O Bitcoin também se correlacionou com ativos de risco, não está vinculado à inflação e permanece excepcionalmente volátil, o que o torna impraticável como depósito de riqueza ou mecanismo de pagamento”, afirmou o pesquisador do Bank of America.

„Como tal, o principal argumento do portfólio para manter Bitcoin não é diversificação, retornos estáveis ​​ou proteção contra a inflação, mas sim a valorização do preço, um fator que depende da demanda de Bitcoin ultrapassar a oferta.“

Dado que muitos investidores estão principalmente preocupados com retornos, o histórico de valorização do Bitcoin como o ativo de melhor desempenho nos últimos dez anos pode levá-los a rejeitar tais críticas.

No entanto, as percepções sobre o impacto ambiental negativo do Bitcoin podem representar uma ameaça ao aumento da adoção corporativa e institucional, uma vez que entra em conflito com a contabilidade de ‚resultado financeiro triplo‘ em que os acionistas conscientes do clima estão cada vez mais focados.

BoA afirma que o Bitcoin tem uma pegada de carbono maior do que qualquer outra atividade humana em termos de influxos de dólar por dólar, com o relatório estimando que o uso de energia do Bitcoin cresceu mais de 200% nos últimos dois anos e agora é comparável à Holanda , Grécia e República Tcheca.

Enquanto os Bitcoiners costumam citar números que sugerem que entre 39% e 76% da mineração de Bitcoin usa energia renovável , o relatório de BoA afirma que, na verdade, três quartos da mineração de BTC ocorrem na China, onde mais da metade da eletricidade é produzida a partir do carvão. Além disso, afirma que metade de toda a mineração chinesa ocorre na província de Xinjiang, onde 80% da energia vem do carvão.

(Isso ignora a migração sazonal de mineiros para Sichuan para aproveitar as vantagens da energia hidrelétrica barata durante a estação das chuvas. A Coinshares estima que na verdade são os mineiros da província de Sichuan que respondem por 50% -66% do hashrate global .)

O BoA afirma que o aumento dos preços aumenta a dificuldade de mineração, o que aumenta inexoravelmente a produção de carbono da mineração de Bitcoin.

Swing trwa: NASDAQ Futures na czerwono Bitcoin spada poniżej $50K, Cardano wypada z Top 3

Cardano wypadło z pierwszej trójki monet pod względem kapitalizacji rynkowej po niewielkim spadku, podczas gdy bitcoin wznawia walkę z poziomem 50 000 USD.

Walka Bitcoina w okolicach 50 000 USD trwa nadal, ponieważ aktywo nie zdołało go zdecydowanie pokonać. Nieco podobnie wygląda sytuacja na rynku altcoinów, gdzie ETH spada poniżej 1 700 USD. Jednak w pierwszej piątce aktywów cyfrowych pod względem kapitalizacji rynkowej można zauważyć pewne godne uwagi rotacje, z ADA spadającym na piąte miejsce.

Bitcoin niezdecydowany w okolicach $50K

Podstawowa kryptowaluta straciła nieco na wartości pod koniec ubiegłego tygodnia, kiedy to kilkakrotnie zanurzyła się do poziomu 46 000 USD. Przy takim zachowaniu, aktywo wykazało wysoką korelację z amerykańskim rynkiem akcji, który również spadał w tym samym czasie.

Jednak gdy Wall Street odpoczywała w weekend, BTC zainicjował imponującą zwyżkę, w wyniku której skoczył powyżej 50 000 USD i osiągnął wczoraj intraday high na poziomie prawie 52 000 USD.

Zbiegło się to w czasie z niewielkimi zyskami widocznymi na rynkach futures na S&P 500, Nasdaq i Dow po tym, jak Senat uchwalił kolejną ustawę o ulgach COVID-19 – tym razem na kwotę 1,9 biliona dolarów.

Niemniej jednak od tego szczytu sytuacja się odwróciła i bitcoin stracił ponad 2000 dolarów, a kontrakty futures na Nasdaq ponownie skierowały się na południe. W rezultacie, kryptowaluta ponownie zanurzyła się poniżej 50 000 USD, z oczekiwaniami zwiększonej zmienności po otwarciu Wall Street dla handlu w dniu dzisiejszym.

Top 5 Rotations, ETH spada poniżej $1,7K

Większość alternatywnych monet podążyła za pozytywnym weekendem BTC, z Ethereum przekraczającym cenę $1,700. Jednak ETH spadł od szczytu na poziomie 1 760 USD i obecnie znajduje się na poziomie 1 680 USD.

W momencie pisania tego tekstu inne główne altcoiny odnotowują niewielkie straty, choć nie są one aż tak poważne. Polkadot, Ripple i Litecoin pozostają stosunkowo stabilne w skali 24 godzin. Chociaż Cardano nie straciło od wczoraj żadnych znaczących kawałków wartości, ADA straciło miejsce w pierwszej trójce pod względem kapitalizacji rynkowej.

Ciągłe wybijanie nowych USDT (Tether) i 2% wzrost BNB pomogły obu aktywom prześcignąć ADA. W konsekwencji, Tether powraca do pierwszej trójki, podczas gdy Binance Coin zajmuje czwarte miejsce, zgodnie z danymi CoinMarketCap.

UNI jest najbardziej znaczącym zyskiwaczem z pierwszej dziesiątki z 8% wzrostem do ponad 33 USD. Rządzący token Uniswap jest prawie 50% w górę w ciągu tygodnia.

Dalsze wahania widoczne są w Enjin Coin (35%), Decentraland (26%), YFI (15%), Horizen (15%) i REN (11%), które zmierzają na północ, podczas gdy ZKSwap (-10%), THORChain (-8%) i NEM (-6%) na południe.

Le bitcoin reste autour de 48,5 000 dollars au milieu

Enveloppe du marché : Le bitcoin reste autour de 48,5 000 dollars au milieu d’une activité commerciale plate

„Nous sommes dans une situation sans précédent et le marché doit encore se décider“ sur les prochains niveaux de résistance ou de soutien, déclare un courtier.

Bitcoin a fait face à des marchés agités pendant la majeure partie de la journée de mardi, après avoir brièvement dépassé les 50 000 dollars pour la première fois au cours des premières heures de Bitcoin Revolution négociation aux États-Unis. Certains restant haussiers, d’autres analystes et traders ont mis en garde contre une correction des prix à court terme.

  • Bitcoin (BTC) s’échangeait autour de 48 810,95 à 21:00 UTC (16 heures ET). Gagnant 0,39% sur les 24 heures précédentes.
  • Fourchette de bitcoin sur 24 heures : 47 088,84 $ – 50 584,85 $ (CoinDesk 20)
  • BTC entre ses moyennes de 10 et 50 heures sur le graphique horaire, un signal latéral pour les techniciens du marché.

Les volumes de transactions de Bitcoin sur les huit principaux marchés de cryptage suivis par le CoinDesk 20 sont restés stables mardi, à environ la moitié de ce qu’ils étaient le lundi 8 février. Pendant ce temps, les données de Glassnode montrent que le solde de Bitcoin sur les bourses continue de baisser, un signe haussier pris par certains analystes.

Le solde des bitcoins sur toutes les bourses.

„Nous sommes en territoire de tous les temps et le marché doit encore se décider“ sur les prochains niveaux de résistance ou de soutien, a déclaré Alessandro Andreotti, courtier de bitcoin sur le marché hors cote, à CoinDesk. „Mon opinion est que de nouveaux sommets [sont en train d’être] atteints à court terme“.

Cela se produit alors que les investisseurs particuliers montrent un intérêt croissant pour le marché des produits dérivés.

Selon Arcane Research, les contrats à terme sur les bitcoins de mars sur les plateformes destinées aux particuliers ont actuellement un taux de prime annualisé de 44,16% en moyenne. Ce taux est supérieur à celui du CME, qui s’élève en moyenne à 24,39 %.

„Il continue d’y avoir des entrées nettes dans le crypto, en particulier dans les contrats à terme“, a déclaré Sam Bankman-Fried, PDG de la bourse de dérivés crypto FTX, à CoinDesk. „[Et] les gens à l’intérieur de la crypto continuent d’être particulièrement optimistes.“

D’autres, cependant, mettent en garde contre une correction des prix à court terme, surtout s’il y a un manque de nouveaux catalyseurs en plus de l’achat de 1,5 milliard de bitcoins de Tesla qui a été annoncé la semaine dernière.

„Le marché est devenu parabolique depuis qu’il a franchi la barre des 20 000 dollars et des études techniques mettent en garde contre la nécessité d’un recul vigoureux dans les jours et les semaines à venir pour permettre aux relevés fortement tendus de se dérouler et de se normaliser“, a déclaré Joel Kruger, stratégiste en cryptologie monétaire au sein de l’institution d’échange de crypto LMAX Digital.

„Le niveau de prix de 50 000 dollars est maintenant relativement élevé pour les investisseurs particuliers, et il n’est pas facile pour eux de courir après“, a déclaré à CoinDesk Simons Chen, directeur exécutif de l’investissement et du commerce chez Babel Finance, un prêteur de crypto basé à Hong Kong. Il a ajouté qu’il y avait peu de chances que les investisseurs de détail puissent pousser le prix du bitcoin au-dessus du prix record actuel à court terme.

Sur sa chaîne Telegram, la société QCP Capital, basée à Singapour, a également exprimé un point de vue nuancé sur l’évolution des prix à court terme, en déclarant que, historiquement, le prix du bitcoin avait tendance à baisser en mars en raison de la saisonnalité.

„Plus longtemps le bitcoin restera bloqué ici sans nouveau catalyseur, plus nous chercherons un déclin durable en mars. Comme nous l’avons déjà souligné, la saisonnalité à la baisse du mois de mars, suivie par la saisonnalité à la hausse du mois d’avril, est la tendance saisonnière la plus forte et la plus constante du bitcoin“, a écrit QCP Capital. „Il est encore trop tôt pour nous, mais si les volumes baissent encore, nous chercherons une protection à la baisse [à la fin du mois de mars]“.

Comme l’a indiqué CoinDesk, un des éléments susceptibles de stimuler les marchés est le fait que la société d’intelligence économique MicroStrategy se prépare à acheter plus de bitcoin. De même, la société d’investissement privée Wedbush Securities, basée à Los Angeles, a déclaré que les bitcoins pourraient être davantage détenus et adoptés par les entreprises après l’investissement de Tesla, ce qui signifie que le „nouveau catalyseur“ mentionné par le QCP pourrait encore être imminent.

Alguns investidores institucionais que lucram com o retorno da Bitcoin

A CoinShares notou saídas significativas de produtos institucionais na semana passada, sinalizando que algumas instituições estão realizando lucros em meio ao recente recuo da BTC.

Um novo relatório do fornecedor de fundos criptográficos CoinShares indicou que alguns investidores institucionais têm realizado lucros durante a recente consolidação da BTC.

O relatório semanal de fluxos de ativos digitais da CoinShares identifica $85 milhões em fluxos de saída de produtos criptográficos institucionais na semana passada, afirmando que os dados sugerem que „alguns investidores continuam a obter lucros após a forte valorização dos preços [do BTC]“.

O relatório observou a alta (ponderada pelo comércio) do dólar americano, afirmando que o índice do dólar americano „normalmente está inversamente correlacionado com os preços do Bitcoin“, e poderia explicar por que alguns investidores estão obtendo lucros nos níveis atuais.

A empresa também identificou saídas modestas de produtos de investimento derivados do Ethereum, com US$ 3 milhões saindo dos mercados.

Apesar dos lucros, os fluxos institucionais continuam fortes, com US$ 359 milhões inundados em produtos de investimento criptográficos esta semana. As instituições ainda parecem quase exclusivamente focadas na BTC, com os produtos Bitcoin representando todos os fluxos de capital da semana, exceto 1% do total.

CoinShares observa que as entradas de crypto voltaram aos níveis anteriores ao Natal, após a queda de 97% em três semanas após o feriado. Os volumes diários estão atualmente em alta mais de 450% em relação ao ano anterior.

Os produtos institucionais representam atualmente 6% do volume combinado de Bitcoin – abaixo dos 14% no início do mês.

Muito tem sido ultimamente o crescente apetite institucional pelo criptograma, com grandes empresas globais recentemente enchendo seus tesouros com BTC.

Após receber mais de 11 milhões de BTC em 2020, a Chicago Mercantile Exchange anunciou no mês passado que planeja lançar contratos futuros Ethereum liquidados em dinheiro no início de fevereiro, aguardando aprovação regulatória.

Em 20 de janeiro, a Ninepoint Partners protocolou seu prospecto final para um Bitcoin Trust aprovado condicionalmente pela Bolsa de Valores de Toronto.

Notable stablecoin inflow predicted rapid rise Bitcoin to $20,000

Today bitcoin finally broke through the magical $20,000 limit. But was this outbreak predictable? According to Ki Young Ju from CryptoQuant, the cryptocurrency analysis agency, you could see this movement coming. He looked at the influx of stablecoins into cryptocurrency exchanges.

Stablecoins?

According to Ki Young Ju, just before bitcoin shot through the $20,000 mark, an average of many stablecoins were deposited to addresses of crypto exchanges. It is very likely that these stablecoins were used to buy bitcoins. Immediately after the deposit, the bitcoin price flew to the moon.

Stablecoins are crypto coins with a value linked to a fiat currency, such as the U.S. dollar or the euro. The most popular stablecoin is tether, which is always worth one dollar.

Earlier this week we wrote that the purchasing power of stablecoins is increasing. The supply of stablecoins is growing rapidly. There is nearly $20 billion worth of tether in circulation. By comparison, at the beginning of this year the counter was just over $4 billion.

This is positive news for cryptocurrency rates. Stablecoins are often used to quickly step in when the price of bitcoin millionaire and ethereum, for example, is rising.

Also an all-time high in euros

Bitcoin has set a record not only in dollars, but also in euros. You can see that on the BTC Direct price chart below. The previous high of 16,727 euros was achieved on December 17, 2017. With almost 17,000 euros, the bitcoin price is now well above that.

Bitcoin verslaat 2013-2017 Drie maanden lang

Bitcoin heeft zijn vorige high drie maanden sneller herwonnen dan in de vorige stierenrennen.

20.000 dollar is heroverd in 2 jaar, 11 maanden en 29 dagen…
Bitcoin brak zijn record, slechts één dag te kort voor zijn driejarig hoogverjaardag.

Het feit dat Bitcoin Code gisteren zijn all time high brak, was significant om een aantal redenen, niet in het minst omdat het eindelijk zijn vorige high heeft geëvenaard en een nieuw tijdperk van prijsontdekking heeft ingeluid, iets wat voor het laatst gebeurde in 2017. Interessant genoeg is het echter gelukt om dit drie maanden eerder te doen dan tijdens de laatste stierenloop, terwijl de recordhoogte slechts één dag werd bereikt terugschrikken voor zijn driejarig jubileum.

Verschillende omgevingen, gelijkaardige prestaties

2013 was de eerste stierenloop die Bitcoin meer dan $1.000 kostte, met een maximum van $1.166 op 30 november van dat jaar. De correctie die volgde nam het naar beneden naar $153 voordat het herstel begon, een herstel dat zag Bitcoin bereiken pariteit met zijn eerdere hoge op 20 februari 2017, met 3 jaar, 2 maanden, en 25 dagen tussen de twee hoogtepunten.

Ondanks dat het deze keer een heel ander voorstel is, heeft Bitcoin toch een griezelig gelijkaardig pad gevolgd:

Bitcoin hoog-hoog

Deze keer heeft het proces om de vorige high terug te winnen 2 jaar, 11 maanden en 29 dagen geduurd, drie maanden korter dan de vorige inspanning. Gezien het feit dat Bitcoin, en de wereld in het algemeen, nu een heel andere plaats is dan in februari 2017, is het feit dat de cycli zo dichtbij zijn ondanks dat ze zo’n zeven jaar van elkaar verwijderd zijn, vrij ongelooflijk.

Bitcoin’s Winter Warmer

Wat ook griezelig is, is dat Bitcoin zijn hoogtepunt van 2017 bereikte op 17 december, slechts 18 dagen na het equivalent daarvan in 2013, terwijl het hoogtepunt van gisteren een enkele dag voor het driejarige jubileum van 2017 werd teruggewonnen. Deze parallellen maken de suggestie dat Bitcoin beter presteert in de wintermaanden geloofwaardig, hoewel het twijfelachtig is dat 2021 2017 beter zal weerspiegelen, waardoor de Bitcoin net iets meer dan negen maanden na het terugvorderen van de all time high weer boven water kwam. Gezien het feit dat Bitcoin nog maar een paar maanden bezig is met zijn stierenloop, is er waarschijnlijk veel meer tijd voor deze cyclus om uit te spelen voordat Bitcoin de top bereikt.

Bitcoin is no match for gold, and Steve Forbes tells you so!

Bitcoin versus Gold – Bitcoin is often compared to gold for its similar role as a store of value, especially in the face of weakness in fiat currencies. While some believe that Bitcoin has the potential to surpass the precious metal one day , others like the CEO of Forbes continue to denigrate the king of cryptos.

Is Bitcoin not a good store of value?

Steve Forbes is the current CEO of Forbes Publishing House and its famous eponymous business magazine.

In a video seen on his company’s YouTube channel , the Forbes executive couldn’t help but comment on how he doesn’t see Crypto Bank as the new digital gold . Indeed, according to Steve Forbes, the only reason that would increase the price of BTC would be the fear for the world economy of seeing a collapse of currencies fiats by hyperinflation .

„The biggest stimulus to the bitcoin boom is the fear that the Federal Reserve and other central banks are printing too much money . “

At the very least, he acknowledged that bitcoins can not be printed at will like the dollar, the euro and other state currencies!

Bitcoin is “ not close “ to replacing gold

If Steve Forbes is so skeptical towards Bitcoin is mainly because of the excessive volatility of its course, while gold is a sort of absolute reference :

“Bitcoin remains too volatile to be a long-term store of value like gold traditionally does (…) When you see the price of gold fluctuate in dollars, what you are actually seeing is the dollar’s value. -even that changes ” .

This would already be enough not to make Bitcoin a good safe haven for the CEO of Forbes but, in addition, he makes another more “original” criticism of the king of cryptos. According to him, the fact that the total amount of BTC is fixed is a bad thing:

“(…) The arbitrary limit of the total supply of bitcoins will seriously hamper its future usefulness (…) while gold is scarce, but not too scarce” .

A rather strange argument since, even if currently it is true that the production of gold represents each year an increase of 2% of the existing reserves , what will be in 2140 , at the same time as the last BTC will be mined ?

Bitcoin and the Lindy effect: what lasts a long time finally becomes good

Bitcoin and the Lindy effect: what lasts a long time finally becomes good

Bitcoin coin, with a rubber band underneath in the shape of the infinity sign

The life expectancy of a technology increases proportionally with its lifetime. This is what the Lindy effect, popular among Bitcoiners, says. What to think of the concept.

The concepts and ideas that shape Bitcoin’s acceptance curve are not always easy to understand. Bitcoin is a novel technology for which there are no analogues from the past. Accordingly, the Crypto Bull rise of the first decentralised, fully digital money in the history of mankind seems incomprehensible to viewers at the margins.

What is the Lindy effect?

The flood of money to cope with Corona is enormous. Many investors therefore rely on gold as protection against feared crises and inflation. Low interest rates are still an argument for the precious metal, about which banker John Pierpont Morgan once said: „Only gold is money. Everything else is credit.“ Two DJE funds have gold in particular.
powered by finative

One of these concepts is the Lindy effect. In essence, the idea is quite simple. According to it, the life expectancy of non-perishable things like technology increases with the duration of its existence. Every additional period of time that a technology masters implies a longer life expectancy.

The idea originally came from US author Albert Goldman, who in the 1960s linked the probability of comedy performances at New York’s Lindy’s restaurant (hence the name) to the frequency of previous gigs. The more frequent the gigs, the more likely a comedian’s career is to continue in the future.

But the concept only really took off when mathematician Benoit Mandelbrot described the „Lindy effect“ in his 1982 book The Fractal Geometry of Nature. According to this, future life expectancy is proportional to its past. So if a particular book is printed for 40 years, it can be assumed that it will be around for another 40 years. However, if it survives an additional ten years, it can be expected to be distributed in 50 years. The ultimate example of the stock of literature that can be explained by the Lindy effect is the Bible. It cannot be assumed that the Holy Scriptures will be replaced by an update in the next few years.

So, as Nassim Taleb states in his book Antifragil, certain things age „backwards“. The automobile has existed for about 120 years. So we can assume that the invention will have relevance for another 120 years. Of course, according to Taleb, the Lindy effect is only a statistical probability distribution. For many technologies, however, there is a sudden end. The fax machine or landline telephone connections are largely a thing of the past, as more efficient technologies such as e-mail or mobile phones have replaced them.

If a book has been in print for forty years, I can assume that it will be in print for another forty years. But if it survives another decade, I can expect it to be in print for another fifty years. That usually tells you simply why things age the other way round. Every year that passes without extinction doubles the additional life expectancy.
Nassim Nicholas Taleb in Antifragil.

And what about Bitcoin?

Fair enough. But what does all this have to do with Bitcoin? Well, if the concept is transferred to the No. 1 crypto-currency, every day that BTC functions smoothly, the general confidence should increase that „Orange Coin“ will continue to exist for the duration of its existence. In other words, the longer Bitcoin has been in existence, the longer the crypto-currency should last.

Moreover, the Lindy effect allows for another conclusion. As far as the persistence of competing crypto-currencies is concerned, the Lindy effect suggests that Bitcoin is ahead. After all, it is the first really working crypto currency.

Of course, the Lindy effect is a simplistic view of technological advances. Even Taleb admits that the phenomenon is not really suitable for predicting the life expectancy of individual technologies. In the end, however, it is a very useful tool for testing the robustness of technological achievements. And Bitcoin is indeed becoming more popular every day.

XRP price increase of 173%? According to the analyst, the bullrun should now also reach Ripple’s XRP

A popular analyst and trader believes that Ripple’s native cryptocurrency will follow its forerunners and could finally enter a long-awaited bull cycle. Is the XRP course really about to have a massive bull run?

The pseudonymized analyst who goes by the name Magic seems to think that this is anything but absurd

He wrote on Twitter that the XRP price recently broke a falling wedge formation from September last year.

The strategist’s upside target is the range of $ 0.80 to $ 0.92, which would represent an increase of about 173% from the current XRP price.

Based on the size of the falling wedge pattern, I have determined that the upside target should be around the $ 0.80 mark. However, the 23.6% return for the entire bear market is around $ 0.92.

XRP course has to break through some resistance

So it is possible that the XRP price could move well past the $ 0.80 level to test the $ 0.92 level. The MACD is expressing a strong upward expansion, which increases the likelihood of a surge to higher levels.

However, the analyst also warns that the XRP price will encounter multiple resistance levels before it approaches its upward forecast.

So the XRP bulls will first have to prove they can break the $ 0.32 and $ 0.55 levels.

Ripple’s native token has had a comparatively weak year compared to Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH) . The XRP price started at $ 0.19 in 2020 and has spent most of the year in the $ 0.17 to $ 0.25 range. Nevertheless, it has risen by a whopping 57% this year. Nonetheless, it falls behind BTC with an increase of 145% and ETH with 271%.

Het aantal BTC-portefeuilles lijkt een toenemende interesse van particuliere beleggers te suggereren

Glassnode-gegevens laten zien dat het aantal BTC-adressen van $ 10, $ 100 en $ 1000 een recordhoogte heeft bereikt.

Het aantal miljonair-bitcoin-adressen overschreed voor het eerst sinds 2018 20.000

Nieuwe gegevens van het analyseplatform Glassnode lijken te suggereren dat een recordaantal particuliere beleggers geld in bitcoin heeft gestoken, waardoor het aantal BTC-portefeuilles naar een nieuw record is gestegen.

Volgens een tweet die op 27 oktober is gepubliceerd door Rafael Schultze-Kraft, chief technology officer bij Glassnode, heeft het aantal wallets met een waarde van $ 10, $ 100 en $ 1000 aan BTC een recordhoogte bereikt.

Glassnode-gegevens tonen aan dat het aantal BTC-portefeuilles met minstens $ 10 nu 17,6 miljoen bedraagt, met meer dan 3,6 miljoen portefeuilles met minstens $ 1.000

Glassnode publiceerde eerder in de week ook een update waaruit bleek dat het aantal bitcoin-miljonairadressen de 20.000 had overschreden en het hoogste punt sinds januari 2018 bereikte.

De stijging van het aantal portemonnee-adressen is een sterke indicatie dat particuliere beleggers massaal naar bitcoin gaan. Vorige week, betalingen platform PayPal aangekondigd ondersteuning voor Bitcoin en andere top crypto-activa, het besturen van de prijs van BTC om een 2020 hoog.

De populaire cryptohandelanalist Peter Brandt was ook optimistisch over de vooruitzichten van bitcoin en publiceerde vorige week een update waarin hij beweerde dat BTC op schema zat om de maand af te sluiten op het op één na hoogste niveau ooit.
