Hackers who hacked Exmo withdrew funds via Poloniex

Around $4 million in cryptocurrency stolen in the Exmo hack has reportedly been withdrawn via Poloniex. Unfortunately, the exchange failed to block several accounts in time.

 

On December 21, Exmo announced that it had suffered a major hack, forcing the platform to block all withdrawals. Currently, the company estimates total losses in excess of $10.5 million in various digital assets, including bitcoin (BTC), ether (ETH), Tether (USDT), XRP, Bitcoin Cash (BCH) and Zcash (ZEC).

 

The Exmo team claims that $4 million in stolen assets cannot be recovered because criminals withdrew the funds through Poloniex.

 

„After receiving information from the Exmo team, we quickly identified and froze two accounts. Unfortunately, the assets were withdrawn hours before we were contacted by Exmo,“ commented a Poloniex compliance representative.

 

Exmo estimated that hackers withdrew $1 million in XRP and $2.8 million in ZEC from Poloniex. Exmo officials said that this was due to a lack of anti-money-laundering measures on Poloniex. As Poloniex moved its headquarters from the United States to the Seychelles, Exmo filed a report regarding the matter with the Seychelles Central Bank.

 

Poloniex subsequently denied the Exmo allegations, stating that the exchange adheres to strict AML and Know-Your-Client policies:

 

„In terms of our KYC and AML policies, Poloniex adheres to strict procedures to monitor, detect and prevent money laundering and financial crime. We use industry-leading software from Jumio, EVS and Elliptic for identification, verification, OFAC, sanctions and transaction tracking. Vulnerable accounts were created over 4 weeks ago and have been fully vetted using the aforementioned software and standards.“

 

The Exmo team stated that the hack only affected the exchange’s hot wallets and promised to cover the users‘ losses. In an investigation to recover stolen funds, Exmo identified wallets linked to hackers and began collaborating with major exchanges Kraken and Yobit, as well as analytics companies Channelusis and CipherTrace.

 

On Dec. 2Z Exmo team announced that it plans to resume withdrawals between Dec. 25 and 26.

Bitcoin treffer høyder over $ 24 000 når LTC berører $ 120, BCH, BNT 21. desember

BTC-rally samler damp etter hvert som Litecoin-øynene i 2019 går opp. BCH ser Square cashback boost og Bancor bygger på DeFi gevinster med Coinbase tillegg.

Bitcoin samlet seg over $ 20 000 som jeg forutsa i forrige uke , og mynten rørte høye $ 24 300 på søndag.

Kryptomarkedet er av litt på mandag, da markedene reagerer på en annen kamp med coronavirus-panikk i Europa

Bitcoin hadde steget i forrige uke da den amerikanske dollaren fortsatte å rase på den etterlengtede andre stimuleringspakken for USA, som forventes å bli overført senere i dag. Avtalen koster 900 milliarder dollar, og befolkningen får hver sjekk på 600 dollar. Markedet har nå priset den avtalen, og dagens gjenoppkomst av viruspanikk har dollaren høyere med over 1%. En ny virusstamme funnet i Storbritannia sies å være mer smittsom, og dette ser at andre land legger et reiseforbud på flyreiser til og fra landet, med Frankrike som kutter ut 20% av matforsyningen ved å blokkere transport. En annen kaosrunde i finansmarkedene kunne se at Bitcoin støttes, selv om salgssalg i mars var en advarsel.

BTC trakk på seg noen negative nyheter i forrige uke som så at finansregulatoren FinCEN prøvde å få klørne inn i kryptovalutaområdet

En regel foreslått av finansdepartementet på fredag ​​kunne se at amerikanske digitale valutainnehavere måtte overholde kravene til kunden din (KYC) for å overføre sine beholdninger fra børser til personlige lommebøker. Brian Armstrong, administrerende direktør for Coinbase-børsen sa at selskapet ville utfordre reglene, i en Tweet som ble delt av Litecoin-grunnleggeren Charlie Lee.

Bitcoins sterke fremgang den siste uken betyr at mynten vil se på $ 20 000-tallet for støtte, og handelsmenn bør holde øye med aksjemarkedene. Vi går inn i slutten av året når porteføljene blir justert foran det nye året, og store investorer vil kanskje ta fortjeneste på de skummende markedsverdiene hvis de frykter en ny runde med virusurolig i 2021.

Det samlede kryptovalutamarkedet er nå $ 662 milliarder, og BTC er ansvarlig for 66% av dette tallet.

Litecoin var den beste mynten på uken med et forskudd på 34%. Det femte største myntprosjektet har nå en markedsverdi på 7 milliarder dollar.

Grayscale, som er en av de største digitale kapitalforvalterne, har bemerket interessen for mynten i det siste og gitt ut et grundig forskningspapir som kaller det „en av økosystemets mest interessante digitale valutaer“. Selskapet kunngjorde nylig at investeringskapital under forvaltning hadde økt til 13 milliarder dollar i midten av desember. Selskapet har investert mer enn 10 milliarder dollar i Bitcoin, og mens det kun er 75 millioner dollar i LTC, har etterspørselen økt, så det er potensial for LTC å bli sett på som „undervurdert“ av nye investorer, da Bitcoins siste rally vekker oppmerksomhet til markedet. .

„We never lend money to Singu“, says BitcoinTrade in case of Natura and Tallis Gomes

The quotation from the brokers of cryptomoedas ended up even giving way for people to defend Singu

and its way of declaring profits, since it said it invoiced much more than was found in the financial audit of the company (as stated by Raiam).

Natura is one of the most respected companies in Brazil and an investment considered safe by many people. As any other stock, company’s titles (NTCO3) are also susceptible to falls, but many are pointing to a fight and conflict of interest between some involved in company’s society and a digital influence as the reason for the recent fall of company’s shares.

Well, to start understanding Foxbit and Bitcoin Storm involvement in the whole situation, we must first understand the basics of what happened. It all comes down to some known names, mainly Natura, Singu, Raiam Santos and Tallis Gomes.

Despite being somewhat impactful to investors, the conflict has also reached the crypto market, as two crypto brokers, Foxbit and BitcoinTrade, have also been cited.

Are Natura stocks falling because of influencers fight? Understanding the Case

Singu is a company in the area of beauty products and services, created by Tallis Gomes, who was also the creator of Easy Taxi. Although it is not very expressive, Singu ended up being bought by Natura, a very important investment, but which ended up generating different governance problems for Natura, which until recently was a normal investment.

So Raiam do Santos, a digital influence with a fight with Tallis Gomes, which ended up divulging several data and balance sheets about Singu, raising different points that left the market worried. First, Raiam divulged that Singu is a company of low profit and that has generated loss for several months, not justifying Natura?s investment.

It was then that more information complicated the situation, according to what was divulged, one of Singu partners is Matheus Farah Leal, Guilherme Lea?s stepchild, which is one of Natura?s founders. This has raised a red alert to many, as far as some believed that Natura hasn’t invested on Singu because it believes that the company would bring valorization to its clients, but to „save“ one of the stepchildren of the majority partners of a bad investment.

To make matters worse, Natura hasn’t divulged to its stockholders, not even to the investment funds that put money on the company, about the involvement of Matheus Farah Leal at Singu and his connection with Guilherme Leal. This was characterized as a conflict of interest not divulged to the market, besides having created a governance problem between Natura?s partners, this represents a difficult problem to be dealt to the company with different future impacts.

Besides the problem with investors and partners, the documents also reveal that while the company had a low income, Tallis Gomes received almost millionaires salaries, which irritated many investors who were not having a return with Singus.

Check out a summary of the case:

Foxbit and BitcoinTrade involved with Natura?s case? Broker denies having lent money to Singu

The curious thing is that in the documents revealed by Raiam Santos, who brings several mutual investors from Singu, we have the name of two cryptomoedas brokers involved as the start-up creditors: Foxbit and Bitcoin Trade (legal name Peertrade digital).

The quotation from the brokers of cryptomoedas ended up even giving way for people to defend Singu and its way of declaring profits, since it said it invoiced much more than was found in the financial audit of the company (as revealed by Raiam).

Proprietary trading vs. Financial commission business – which is better for crypto trading?

Specialist lawyer Lutz Auffenberg and his law firm Fin Law have specialized in the field of fintech and innovative technologies. In particular, Ethereum Code technology and its regulation are the focus of his activities. In his guest commentary, he explores the question of what is better suited for crypto trading: proprietary trading or financial commission business?

This article is first on the Fin Law Blog published

Since the prices of Bitcoin, Ether, Litecoin and other cryptocurrencies have been targeting all-time highs again these days and institutional investors are increasingly interested in including relevant positions in cryptocurrencies in their investment portfolios, the daily trading volume in the crypto market has also increased significantly. The trading volume within 24 hours has been between 150 and 200 billion USD in the last few days, and the trend is rising.

The increasing interest in crypto trading in the investor market also means weddings for service providers who want to offer their customers access to the crypto market and enable trading in crypto values. Insofar as crypto values ​​are to be placed on one’s own books in such business models, a permit from BaFin to operate proprietary trading or finance commission business is generally required for business operations under the applicable banking supervisory law in Germany. But what is the difference between the two facts and which variant is best for crypto trading?

When does proprietary trading exist?

Proprietary trading, which is subject to authorization, is carried out by anyone who purchases or sells financial instruments in their own name and for their own account and fulfills additional special requirements stipulated by the German Banking Act. Since crypto currencies in Germany generally represent financial instruments as crypto values, trading in crypto currencies can also constitute proprietary trading that requires authorization. For example, the activity as a so-called market maker who continuously offers trading in crypto values ​​at trading venues at self-set prices or as a so-called systematic internaliser who systematically and organizes trading in crypto values ​​outside of trading venues can constitute proprietary trading that is subject to authorization.

In addition, proprietary trading always comes into consideration if someone trades a considerable amount of crypto assets for their own account and offers this as a service for their customers. Proprietary traders enter into direct contractual relationships with their trading partners and identify themselves to them as contractual partners. It is controversial whether the activity must always be of a service nature in order to be required to obtain a permit, but BaFin does not consider it to be a prerequisite for a permit requirement in all cases.

Senador-Eleito dos EUA quer fazer de Bitcoin um grande jogador financeiro

Uma senadora eleita pelos EUA na recente eleição americana, Cynthia Lummis, é uma dona de Bitcoin e espera trazer mudanças que levem a mais adoção de Bitcoin.

Ela é detentora da Bitcoin desde 2013 e disse em uma entrevista que está determinada a fazer da Bitcoin um ator importante no cenário financeiro.

O novo senador eleito do Wyoming venceu o candidato democrata Mike Enzi para se tornar o primeiro senador feminino pró-Bitcoin.

Cynthia Lummis é detentora da Bitcoin desde 2013 e está determinada a colocar a criptografia na vanguarda do debate político dos EUA. Ela tem falado duro sobre como fazer história com a Bitcoin.

Embora ela tenha tido uma longa e renomada carreira na política, apenas algumas pessoas sabem que ela também é uma bitcoiner e uma defensora ferrenha da adoção mainstream.

Levantando o debate sobre Bitcoin

Cynthia está preparada para oferecer à Bitcoin um futuro melhor, admitindo que ela quer colocar o debate sobre seus benefícios da adoção na agenda política dos Estados Unidos.

Durante uma entrevista no „Good Morning America“, ela falou sobre os benefícios da Bitcoin e seu apelo como um valor de loja, que ela entendeu quando era tesoureira estadual do Wyoming.

„Eu espero trazer bitcoin para a conversa nacional“, disse ela durante a entrevista.

A bitcoin como o melhor mecanismo de valor de armazenamento

Cynthia também falou sobre como a escassez de Bitcoin proporciona uma vantagem competitiva sobre a inflação do dólar americano. Ela disse que foi isso que a incentivou a investir na moeda criptográfica superior, e desde então ela não se arrependeu de sua decisão.

A senadora disse que, no que diz respeito aos ativos financeiros, a Bitcoin é um dos melhores mecanismos de valor de armazenamento, que deve receber mais atenção do que a que tem hoje.

Cynthia disse que existem apenas 21 milhões de Bitcoins sem emissões adicionais. Como resultado da resistência, ela ajudará a causa da Bitcoin no futuro debate geopolítico.

Enquanto o dólar americano inflaciona constantemente, o Bitcoin não o faz, tornando-o o mecanismo de investimento perfeito a longo prazo. Quando 21 milhões de moedas Bitcoin são extraídas, não vai além disso. Mas o governo pode optar por bombear mais dólares para a economia em algumas circunstâncias, como durante esta era pandêmica da covide-19, disse ela.

Com os atuais atributos positivos em torno do Bitcoin, Cynthia diz que a moeda criptográfica de topo será um jogador importante quando se trata da reserva de valor por muito tempo. Durante a entrevista, ela revelou que a Bitcoin faz parte de sua carteira de investimentos desde seu primeiro investimento em 2013.

Bitcoin: ¿Corrección temporal o no hay ATH este año? La actualización del mercado semanal Crypto

Bitcoin tiene una forma de sorprender a la gente. Esta semana no fue la excepción. Hace unos días, casi todo el mundo creía que la criptocracia se dirigía inevitablemente a un nuevo máximo histórico. ¿Y cómo no iban a hacerlo? BTC estaba operando a unos pocos cientos de dólares por debajo del récord de 2017. Desafortunadamente, las cosas dieron un giro para peor.

Ayer fue sin duda un mal día para Bitcoin, ya que cayó un total de alrededor de 3.000 dólares en menos de 24 horas. De un máximo de unos 19.500 dólares a 16.200 dólares, los osos se asomaron y mostraron sus caras. Todo el mercado perdió alrededor de 80 mil millones de dólares de su capitalización, ya que los altcoins en realidad tuvieron lo peor.

Durante la caída del mercado, el dominio de Bitcoin aumentó, mostrando que no sólo los altcoins fallaron en mantener su posición, sino que cayeron con más fuerza que el BTC. Desde entonces, ha habido una ligera recuperación y en el momento de escribir este artículo, la criptodivisa primaria se está negociando a unos 17.000 dólares.

El movimiento fue aparentemente impulsado por la noticia de que los reguladores de EE.UU. podrían tratar de exigir la verificación de la identidad de los proveedores de la cripto-moneda. El CEO de Coinbase, Brian Armstrong, comentó sobre el asunto, expresando su preocupación de que si las nuevas reglas se implementan, serían bastante dañinas para los usuarios y la industria en general.

Al mismo tiempo, la popular bolsa de divisas OKEx abrió los retiros por primera vez desde que se cerraron hace un mes, lo que podría haber llevado a los usuarios a retirar los beneficios que han estado sentados. De hecho, CryptoPotato informó que se retiraron alrededor de 500 millones de dólares del intercambio cuando comenzó la caída.

En cualquier caso, los resultados están aquí, y sigue siendo particularmente interesante ver a dónde irá Bitcoin a partir de aquí.

Datos del mercado
Capitalización de mercado: $512B | 24H Vol: 181B | BTC Dominio: 62%

BTC: $17,132 (-7.98%) | ETH: $516.86 (+1.71%) | XRP: $0.56 (+74.08%)

Bitcoin por valor de 500 millones de dólares retirados de OKEx mientras los usuarios buscan otra alternativa. Los datos muestran que los usuarios retiraron un total de 29.300 BTC del popular intercambio de criptodólares OKEx justo después de que reanudara su plena funcionalidad. Esto sucedió justo cuando Bitcoin sumó 3.000 dólares en cuestión de 24 horas. La bolsa también reanudó los retiros un día antes de lo anunciado y durante el horario de operaciones de China.

Una nueva investigación muestra que las actividades asociadas a Satoshi Nakamoto de 2008 y 2010 podrían haber tenido lugar en Londres cuando la red de Bitcoin se puso en marcha. Esto acerca a los expertos a identificar quién está detrás del legendario seudónimo.

6 posibles razones para la caída del precio diario de 3.000 dólares de Bitcoin. Bitcoin sufrió una caída masiva hace dos días cuando perdió alrededor de 3.000 dólares de su valor en una repentina vela roja. Estas son seis razones por las que esto puede haber sucedido y un breve resumen de lo que podría pasar a continuación.

El CEO de Coinbase teme las rumores sobre las regulaciones propuestas por la administración Trump. Brian Armstrong, el CEO de la empresa líder de intercambio de cripto-moneda Coinabse, ha dicho que está preocupado por los rumores sobre las regulaciones de los proveedores de billeteras que tienen que identificar a sus usuarios. Dijo que esto podría dañar a los usuarios y a todo el ecosistema.

20K $ est un tremplin vers une capitalisation boursière de 1000 milliards de dollars pour Bitcoin: Stratège senior Bloomberg

Un stratège principal de Bloomberg estime que 20000 dollars ne sont qu’un tremplin pour que Bitcoin atteigne une capitalisation boursière de 1000 milliards de dollars.

Cela a été toute une année pour Bitcoin, à la fois en termes de prix et d’adoption. Après avoir enregistré sa plus forte baisse de prix quotidienne à 3600 dollars en mars en raison de la pandémie COVID-19, la crypto-monnaie s’échange désormais à moins de 25% par rapport au sommet historique de 2017.

Les analystes sont optimistes et pensent que le Bitcoin Lifestyle est prêt pour des mouvements encore plus importants et que l’actif numérique pourrait atteindre des sommets plus élevés si la tendance haussière actuelle se poursuit.

Bitcoin à une capitalisation boursière de 1 billion de dollars

Fait intéressant, le stratège principal de Bloomberg, Mike McGlone, estime qu’une capitalisation boursière de Bitcoin de 1000 milliards de dollars est possible si l’actif cryptographique récupère le niveau de prix ATH de 20000 dollars.

Avec l’actif qui se négocie actuellement au-dessus de 16 500 $ après une baisse à 15 800 $ ce week-end, la valorisation boursière de Bitcoin est maintenant de plus de 304 milliards de dollars. Selon McGlone, le niveau de prix de 20 000 $ est le principal obstacle qui empêche l’actif d’atteindre une capitalisation boursière de 1 billion de dollars.

L’analyste de Bloomberg pense que la plus grande crypto-monnaie est «à un stade précoce de la découverte des prix et pourrait simplement poursuivre son ascension en 2021».

Il décrit Bitcoin comme la «version numérique de l’or mais avec une offre plus limitée et une histoire d’ajout de zéros».
L’adoption grand public augmente

McGlone note également que «l’adoption grand public est en hausse» pour Bitcoin et que cela fournirait peut-être le coup de pouce significatif dont la crypto-monnaie a besoin pour briser l’obstacle des prix de 20 000 $.

Bitcoin a connu son taux d’adoption le plus élevé cette année au cours de ses 11 ans d’histoire. Des sociétés cotées en bourse comme MicroStrategy et Square qui l’ont adopté comme actif de réserve principal à PayPal en l’intégrant dans son réseau de paiement, tout cela a contribué à positionner Bitcoin dans sa tendance haussière actuelle.

Bitcoin à 318K $ d’ici décembre 2021

Alors que McGlone pense que la course haussière actuelle pourrait se poursuivre l’année prochaine, Thomas Fitzpatrick, directeur général du géant bancaire multinational Citibank, prédit que la tendance pourrait porter le bitcoin à un prix de 318000 dollars d’ici la fin de 2021.

Fitzpatrick a donné la prédiction haussière après avoir analysé les performances historiques des prix de Bitcoin. Selon lui, le marché haussier actuel a commencé en décembre 2018 et la BTC pourrait atteindre des territoires de prix révolutionnaires si la tendance se poursuit.

Comme beaucoup d’autres, Fitzpatrick pense que Bitcoin est le nouvel or. Il a déclaré que l’offre limitée et les formes numériques de l’actif cryptographique étaient deux de ses caractéristiques les plus distinctives.

Bitcoin-verjaardagsvieringen beginnen over de hele wereld

Bitcoin-verjaardagsvieringen beginnen over de hele wereld om de 12 jaar sinds de release van de Bitcoin-whitepaper te herdenken.

De officiële verjaardag van Bitcoins is morgen, maar beroemdheden als Charlie Sheen, David Hasselhoff en Gilbert Gottfried staan ​​op de lijst die al zijn verjaardag viert.

Halborn, een blockchain-cyberbeveiligingsbedrijf, heeft een video uitgebracht om de munt een gelukkige verjaardag te geven.

Bitcoin-verjaardagsvieringen beginnen over de hele wereld

Bitcoin-verjaardagsvieringen beginnen over de hele wereld om de 12 jaar te herdenken sinds het zijn whitepaper uitbracht. De officiële verjaardag van de munten is morgen, maar beroemdheden als Charlie Sheen, David Hasselhoff en Gilbert Gottfried staan ​​op de lijst die al zijn verjaardag viert.

Halborn, een blockchain-cyberbeveiligingsbedrijf, heeft een video uitgebracht om de digitale valuta een gelukkige verjaardag te geven. De munt heeft ervoor gezorgd dat mensen slagen, aangezien het momenteel wordt verhandeld voor $ 13.300 en beter presteert dan zichzelf om te pronken op zijn speciale dag.

Satoshi Nakamoto publiceerde de whitepaper in 2008 . In de whitepaper wordt uitgelegd wat cryptocurrency is en hoe het werkt.

Goed nieuws is er in overvloed, aangezien de steun van Paypal resulteerde in een golf van investeringen van een overvloed aan bedrijven zoals Square en MicroStrategy.

Bedrijven zoals Grayscale, de grootste cryptofondsbeheerder, hebben een reden om te vieren, want ze hebben $ 1,05 miljard aan crypto gerapporteerd in 2020

De activa van de Grayscale Bitcoin Trust (GBTC) zijn gestegen van $ 1,9 miljard naar $ 4,9 miljard.

Voor velen blinkt de digitale munt uit als iets dat de fiat-valutabanken waarmee banken momenteel werken, kan vervangen . De whitepaper schetste dat de munt de kracht heeft om problemen uit te stralen, zoals overgangskosten.

Raoul Pal, CEO van Real Vision Group, zei dat de cryptocurrency nu een van ’s werelds meest uitstekende reserves is voor pensioenfondsen, bedrijven en particulieren. De vraag naar Bitcoin neemt over de hele wereld toe naarmate meer landen en individuen de aantrekkingskracht ervan beginnen te beseffen.

Bitcoin climbs to US$14,000 just in time for the twelfth „Whitepaper Birthday

With the jump over $14,000, Bitcoin reaches its highest level since January 2018.

The Bitcoin share price (BTC) broke the US$14,000 mark on October 31, the date on which Bitcoin’s white paper was published under the pseudonym Satoshi Nakamoto twelve years ago. Since then, the market-leading crypto currency has made considerable progress in many areas.

Twelve years after its launch on 31 October 2008, Bitcoin is in a completely different dimension. The entry of institutional investors into the market is currently fuelling BTC’s recovery, several major financial institutions are now working with crypto-currencies and, in addition, the liquidity of the market continues to increase.

Halving coincides with my birthday

The twelfth „birthday“ of the Bitcoin white paper has a very special meaning, as this year also saw the third „halving“ of Bitcoin.

Every four years, the market-leading crypto currency undergoes a so-called „halving“, which literally halves the block reward, and thus the rate of increase in the volume in circulation. This mechanism is built-in, as the total amount in circulation is limited to 21 million BTC. The closer Bitcoin comes to this upper limit, the lower the rate of increase or the amount of new units added.

As halving therefore reduces the available supply, this event has always had a positive effect on the price development so far. Every four years, the crypto currency therefore undergoes an automatic shortage.

Accordingly, the fourth, eighth and twelfth birthdays of Bitcoin Bonanza are each more important than all the years in between. The last halving of this kind was held in May 2020, which makes today’s „celebrations“ all the more interesting.

On the whitepaper’s birthday Bitcoin has almost always seen a significant jump from the previous year, for example BTC in 2013 was only 204 US dollars, whereas in 2014 it was already 338 US dollars. In 2015 it dropped to 314 US dollars, but by 2016 the rate had more than doubled to 700 US dollars. While in 2017 the exchange rate even jumped to 6468 US dollars, in 2019 it was 9,199 US dollars again.

Only just over 14,000 US dollars

And this trend seems to be repeating today, as Bitcoin has meanwhile climbed to a high of 14,100 US dollars on the major crypto exchanges. Selling pressure then came back into play at this level, mainly from the Binance, which then lowered the price again by 3 %.

Prior to this decline, Bitcoin was pushed up by massive buy-walls on Huobi and Binance. Binance, for example, had a buy-wall of BTC 1,371 at $13,680, before a second buy-wall on Huobi at $13,800 strengthened the upswing.

A Bitcoin trader on Twitter says that this is „the biggest buy wall on Huobi“ he has seen in a long time.

However, when Bitcoin was then lifted above the $14,000 mark, traders on Binance quickly sold large amounts of BTC again. Cointelegrahp Markets expert Keith Wareing had already feared a similar development in the run-up to this:

„Unfortunately, Bitcoin will be knocked off at the $14,000 mark by the major investors in Binance and pushed back below the 2019 high.

What comes next?

After such enormous price swings, Bitcoin usually stabilises and settles in a sideways movement. Since the $14,000 mark is an important resistance, it can be assumed that the crypto currency will initially strengthen below this hurdle and repeatedly jump above it.

The market researchers at CryptoQuant recently pointed out that the Bitcoin assets stored on crypto exchanges are becoming less and less. This mostly indicates a decreasing pressure to sell.

Ki Young Ju, CEO of CryptoQuant, concludes that this development is „a long-term buy signal“. The fewer investors want to sell, the greater the likelihood that a long-term uptrend is imminent.

So, an optimistic mood, underpinned by strong fundamentals and several positive technical indicators, is giving Bitcoin a happy 12th birthday.

Bitcoin-bankomater ökade med 87% det senaste året för att överträffa 10 000 globalt

2020 har sett en kraftig ökning av antalet bankomater som stöder digitala mynt.

Det totala antalet Bitcoin-bankomater har nu passerat 10000 över hela världen

Enligt norska finansföretag AksjeBloggen antalet Bitcoin bankomater (BTMS) har hoppat 87% under det senaste året, från 5336 inspelad i september 2019. Bara under 2020 var nästan 3900 nya bankomater till. Övervakningsresurs CoinATMRadar visar att det för närvarande finns 10 014 bankomater i 71 länder som tillåter användare att köpa och sälja The News Spy och altcoins kontant.

„2020 har sett en kraftig ökning av antalet uttagsautomater som stöder digitala mynt“, säger AksjeBloggen-rapporten.

„3 885 nya BTM-enheter [öppnade] över hela världen mellan januari och september, en ökning med 67% på nio månader.“

För närvarande leder USA marknaden över hela världen med en betydande marginal med mer än 7 800 bankomater. Kanada hamnar på andra plats med 869 maskiner. Beroende på maskin kan kryptoinnehavare köpa och ta ut större kryptovalutor inklusive Bitcoin Cash ( BCH ), Ether ( ETH ), Dash ( DASH ), Litecoin ( LTC ), Zcash ( ZEC ), Monero ( XMR ), Dogecoin ( DOGE ), Tether ( USDT ) och XRP .

Men adoption växer inte överallt. CoinATMRadars data visar att Österrike var ett av få länder som upplevde en negativ installationstillväxt sedan 2019. Landet har för närvarande 149 bankomater, en minskning från 244 i september 2019.

Minskningen kan relateras till den reglerande atmosfären, med nya regler i granntyskland, som bara har 27 bankomater. Maskinägare måste nu erhålla en licens från landets finansiella tillsynsmyndighet, BaFin, för att fungera. Tyska företag kan hållas ansvariga för icke-licensierade Bitcoin-bankomater på deras egendom oavsett vem som äger dem.
