Der Herausgeber der Vogue SG arbeitet mit Vidy zusammen, um eine NFT-Plattform zu erstellen

Media Publishares, Herausgeber von Vogue, Esquire, Robb Report und Buro in Singapur, geben eine Partnerschaft mit Vidy bekannt, um eine NFT-Plattform für die Mode-, Kunst- und Musikindustrie zu starten und zu entwickeln.

Vidy wurde vom singapurischen Technologieunternehmer Matthew Lim und dem Alumni Patrick Colangelo von der Harvard University gegründet und ist ein Blockchain-basiertes digitales Werbetool, das die Zuschauer mit seiner nativen Kryptowährung VidyCoin belohnt

Durch die Implementierung der Vidy-Technologie in den Titeln von Media Publishares ist die Partnerschaft zwischen den beiden Unternehmen aufgrund ihres gemeinsamen Ansatzes „Digital First“ und ihres innovativen Denkens organisch gewachsen.

Die nicht fungible Plattform, die im dritten Quartal 2021 eingeführt werden soll, zelebriert Kunst und Kultur in einer um 360 Grad navigierbaren virtuellen Umgebung, in der digitale Mode, Kunst, Musik und Design präsentiert werden. Zu den Hauptmerkmalen der Plattform gehören das Prägen, Handeln und Versteigern von NFTs über ein Token-System sowie die Möglichkeit, soziale Interaktionen zu hosten.

Die Bitcoin Code Plattform konzentriert sich auf den Aufbau virtueller Kreativität als Kompetenz bei gleichzeitiger Förderung eines nachhaltigen Konsums und spendet einen Prozentsatz des NFT-Umsatzes an Organisationen, die sich mit Problemen der realen Welt befassen, um eine positive Verbindung zwischen der virtuellen und der physischen Welt sicherzustellen.

„Der NFT-Markt ist seit 2020 um über 229% gewachsen und hat über 500 Millionen US-Dollar erreicht. Es befindet sich jedoch noch in einem frühen Stadium und ist in Bezug auf die Infrastrukturentwicklung noch weit entfernt. Mit der Metaverse und dem Aufkommen digitaler Modelle können Menschen in einer parallelen virtuellen Welt leben, in der sie eine digitale Identität besitzen und Gegenstände nicht nur in einer digitalen Datei, sondern als einzigartiges Gut in ihrem virtuellen Land kaufen können, ähnlich wie in ihrem physischen Welt “, sagte Lim.

„Für diese neue NFT-Plattform wird Vidy aufgrund unserer einzigartigen Erfahrung im Umgang mit traditionellen Unternehmen und Krypto die Technologie- und Blockchain-Entwicklung leiten. Wir sind zuversichtlich, dass wir die beste Plattform schaffen werden, die die NFT-Welt stärken wird, indem sie eine nahtlose Teilnahme der traditionellen Mode-, Kunst- und Musikgemeinschaften ermöglicht. “

Die NFT-Plattform richtet sich an ein digital versiertes Publikum, das nach Luxusartikeln mit geringer Umweltbelastung sucht und gleichzeitig Entwickler einbezieht, die eine virtuelle Identität für ihre Designs und neue Einnahmequellen für ihr Handwerk erkunden

„Media Publishares war mit seinem innovativen Ansatz zum Geschichtenerzählen, angeführt von unseren Ankertiteln Vogue, Esquire, Robb Report und Buro Singapore, immer einen Schritt voraus“, sagte Michael von Schlippe, Präsident von Media Publishares. „Wir sehen eine neue kreative Renaissance, in der Kreativität und Technologie gemeinsam den Wandel vorantreiben. Durch die Schaffung einer NFT-Plattform, die im Wesentlichen als virtueller Marktplatz zwischen Kreativen und Benutzern fungiert, können wir eine einzigartige einkaufbare Plattform mit Inhalten für die Community in Form von Bildung, Interaktion und Unterhaltung bereitstellen “, fügte von Schlippe hinzu.

Matic Network renames itself Polygon, adopts new strategy to support Ethereum

Famous Ethereum second layer solution, the Matic Network project changes its name and becomes Polygon. In addition to this rebranding, Polygon is adopting a strategy to create a multi-chain system on the Ethereum blockchain, similar to the one already set up by Polkadot.

Matic Network becomes Polygon

Matic Network , the popular scaling solution for the Ethereum blockchain, changes its name to Polygon . In its press release , the startup specifies that it is committed to developing new solutions to help Ethereum cope with its new rivals , such as Polkadot (DOT) and Avalanche (AVAX).

Now, the Polygon team will focus on Layer 2 protocol aggregation , to host multiple technologies at once in the interest of improving the user experience of Ethereum /

“Polygon will support several Layer 2 solutions such as Optimistic Rollups (OR), zkRollups (ZKR), and Validium, making it an L2 aggregator. This approach, implemented through Polygon’s modular SDK, will allow projects to select the scale solution that best fits their needs rather than being tied by any one option, ”the Polygon team specifies.

In its press release, the startup says it is aware that certain solutions such as Polkadot, Cosmos and Avalanche occupy a more important place in the ecosystem. For Polygon, these networks have the advantage of being well structured, unlike the “somewhat chaotic Ethereum” landscape. Instead of going it alone, Polygon therefore aims to bring together the most scalability solutions for Ethereum and get the best out of each protocol .

The team also adds that all the existing products developed on Matic Network and their implementations obviously remain functional. Regarding the Polygon token, MATIC will keep its roles in network security and governance . MATIC therefore remains the cryptocurrency of this new ecosystem and its holders have no particular action to take .

The solution to Ethereum’s problems?

This change in strategy on the part of the Polygon team comes at a critical time for Ethereum . The network is struggling to meet demand and transaction fees are becoming exorbitant, in the order of $ 100 to $ 200 depending on the period . Decentralized finance (DeFi) applications built on Ethereum are suffering, with users looking for alternatives as fees continue to climb.

This significant network congestion is unfortunately the price of Ethereum’s success. The price of Ether (ETH) continues to climb and DeFi protocols like Aave, Maker or Compound are attracting more and more users.

Massive adoption of second layer protocols is a top priority for the sustainability of the Ethereum network and all applications built on it. As long as Ethereum does not solve this major problem, the migration of users to other less expensive blockchains will continue, notably to Polkadot, Avalanche and especially Binance Smart Chain .

With the Ethereum 2.0 upgrade likely not coming until late 2021 – early 2022, DeFi protocol users won’t wait that long before turning to other more affordable solutions. For Polygon, the stakes are high and its actions could literally reverse the trend.

Bitcoin acquista algos ‚raramente si preoccupa del prezzo‘ nel 2021, dice l’analista

Potrebbe ancora comparire un top a soffietto, ma la composizione del mercato è cambiata e i cali del 20% sono stati acquistati con „aggressività“, dice filbfilb.

La Bitcoin (BTC) non è lontana dall’implosione del prezzo massimo, ma gli investitori stanno „aggressivamente“ acquistando il calo. Parlando con il Cointelegraph l’8 gennaio, il popolare analista filbfilb ha rivelato che il Bitcoin era dovuto ad una fase correttiva dato il ritmo dei recenti guadagni.

filbfilb: Non credo che siamo lontani dall’aver fatto un salto di qualità

Giovedì, BTC/USD ha superato i 40.000 dollari prima di una spettacolare inversione di tendenza che ha visto un prelievo di 2.200 dollari in meno di un minuto. In seguito, i nuovi tentativi di ribaltamento di 40.000 dollari a sostegno sono stati accolti con un rifiuto, e i livelli di stampa hanno cerchiato 38.400 dollari.

Con gli operatori del mercato desiderosi di sapere cosa verrà dopo, il filbfilb ha detto al Cointelegraph che un nuovo stile di acquisto stava alimentando i massimi di tutti i tempi. Come per ogni mercato, tuttavia, i guadagni verticali non potevano durare per sempre.

„Bitcoin ha continuato a fare consolidazioni sempre più piccole dopo tentativi di svendita falliti. Questo indica una conclusione climatica ad una maggiore probabilità in termini di tempo. Non credo che siamo molto lontani dal raggiungere il punto di partenza, ma quanto in alto potrebbe arrivare è l’ipotesi di chiunque“, ha detto.

„In termini di correzione, tutto quello che sappiamo oggi è che il 20% delle correzioni viene comprato con l’aggressività. Fino a quando questo non cambia, allora odio usare un cliché, ma la tendenza è tua amica“.

Questo stile di trading automatizzato indica di per sé una nuova classe di investitori che hanno bisogno di entrare nel mercato con importi maggiori, piuttosto che l’esposizione manuale casuale che ha caratterizzato la corsa al 2017 a 20.000 dollari.

„E‘ stato più che altro che ci sono ancora evidenti segni di algoritmi di accumulazione e che gli algoritmi di accumulazione raramente si preoccupano del prezzo quando il loro obiettivo è quello di investire X$ nel periodo di tempo Y“, ha aggiunto filbfilb.

Al rialzo in „territorio inesplorato“

A 40.000 dollari, nel frattempo, un solo bitcoin ha superato per la prima volta il valore dello stipendio mediano annuo degli Stati Uniti.

I maggiori guadagni del 2021 della sola criptovaluta sono stati superiori al 42% al picco di giovedì di 40.400 dollari, con il ritiro che ne è seguito pari a circa il 9% di perdite. Mentre gli analisti hanno mantenuto la possibilità di ulteriori correzioni, l’umore di venerdì è stato decisamente rialzista.

„L’intero ciclo di tori che stiamo vivendo ora sarà molto più grande di quanto chiunque si aspetti che finisca“, ha detto l’analista di Cointelegraph Markets Michaël van de Poppe ai seguaci di Twitter.

„Proprio come il picco di 20.000 dollari era molto più alto di quanto tutti si aspettassero nel 2016/2017 per essere il top su Bitcoin. È così che funzionano i mercati“.

Lo statistico Willy Woo ha anche notato la mancanza di riferimenti lasciati sul grafico spot Bitcoin per calcolare la resistenza, visti gli ultimi massimi di tutti i tempi. Sono rimaste solo le sequenze di Fibonacci.

„Quando non ci sono livelli storici di resistenza, i numeri magici in natura sono tutto ciò che abbiamo per le bande di supporto e resistenza. Il Bitcoin è in una scoperta di prezzo sfrenata in un territorio inesplorato, letteralmente“, ha scritto.

FDP financial expert Schäffler: Federal government missed the connection with crypto currencies

The FDP financial expert Schäffler accuses the German government of inactivity with regard to important questions about crypto currencies.

The FDP financial expert Schäffler criticized the federal government for inaction on Bitcoin System crypto currencies in a post published on January 5 on its website .

As numerous small inquiries on the subject of cryptocurrencies from the FDP parliamentary group have shown, the federal government has not seen any need for action in the area of taxation for eight years.

Schäffler: The government always answers the same

The government has not changed its view over the years and „always answer the same“ with the statement that the Federal Ministry of Finance „is in coordination with the highest financial authorities of the states“. Despite this long-running voting process, the government had been unable to reach an agreement on this important issue for eight years.

This is a problem for investors in relation to rising prices for crypto currencies and the resulting “ever greater tax law issues”. Schäffler expresses a lack of understanding, as interest in cryptocurrencies is currently growing massively.

The federal government shows no interest in “ offering the citizens of Germany a secure legal framework for acquisition and taxation,“ said the FDP politician. Schäffler also focuses on technical and tax issues, some of which he lists:

“What is the order of consumption? What happens in the case of a hard fork (ie whoever bought Bitcoins suddenly also has Bitcoin Cash (new cryptocurrency) in their depot)? What happens if one cryptocurrency is exchanged for the other? „

The fact that the payment service provider PayPal in the USA already allows its customers to use Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies has not prompted either the federal government or BaFin to contact the company. This and the answers of the federal government to the small inquiries of his parliamentary group make it clear that the federal government is failing to “keep up with this key technology”.

FDP parliamentary group shows great interest

The FDP parliamentary group with Frank Schäffler regularly makes small inquiries about blockchain technology and crypto currencies in order to find out the positions and intentions of the federal government. As became known last November, for example, it does not expect a digital euro to be introduced as the digital central bank currency in the coming years .

United States – Will the transfer of cryptomoney to a personal wallet soon be monitored?

What if the transfer of cryptomoney transactions from a centralized platform to a personal wallet were soon to be monitored? This is what FinCEN, an office of the US Treasury Department, is considering imposing.

United States – Will the transfer of cryptomoney to a personal wallet soon be monitored?

The United States is attacking personal wallets
Nowadays, transferring cryptomoney from a centralised platform to a personal wallet is fairly innocuous. Not for much longer, at least in the United States. The Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN), an organisation that fights financial crime in the United States, is proposing the introduction of strict new measures in this respect.

Under the proposed new provisions, banks and companies that allow the exchange of cryptography would be required to submit reports to supervisory bodies and to verify the identity of customers executing transactions to private portfolios.

Indeed, FinCEN suggests classifying crypto-actives as „monetary instruments“, which would result in them being subject to the Bank Secrecy Act of 1970 (BSA), a US law that aims to monitor monetary transactions.

This law stipulates that any transfer totaling Bitcoin Lifestyle more than $10,000 over a 24-hour period must be reported to FinCEN and the identity of the client must be verified. Exchanges would also have to report all individual transactions over $3,000 to the regulator.

👉 On the same theme – G7 strongly supports the need to regulate cryptomoney schemes
A threat to the cryptomoney industry?
FinCEN argues that these new requirements must address national security concerns. Yes, that’s all:

„The proposal seeks to establish appropriate controls to protect the national security of the United States against a range of threats from foreign nations and actors, including ransom software and cyber security attacks sponsored by other states, as well as the financing of global terrorism, among others. »

Even more worryingly, FinCEN may in the future change the threshold at which information collection is required. The organization plans to monitor any transfers exceeding a net value of $250 – instead of $3,000 – for any transfers outside the United States, whether or not they are encrypted.

The general public has until January 4, 2021 to comment on FinCEN’s proposal. Knowing that almost every withdrawal from a centralized platform such as Binance would be monitored, the views of those affected seem obvious.

The entry into force of such a law would not be without consequences. The private aspect of a personal portfolio would then lose all meaning, and the US Treasury would be able to approximately determine the value of the portfolio of each individual using a centralised platform.

Last November, Coinbase CEO Brian Armstrong was already warning of new regulations to come. As Brian Armstrong pointed out, if these new regulations come into effect, the impact on the cryptomoney industry and even the United States would be terrible :

„In the early days of the Internet, there were also people who wanted to regulate it just like the phone companies. And thank God that hasn’t happened,“ he added.

Il minatore canadese Bitfarms rilascia la perdita del terzo trimestre nonostante il prezzo elevato di Bitcoin

I dati di Bitfarms Q3 2020 mostrano perdite trimestre su trimestre e anno su anno.

CAPEX e l’evento di dimezzamento di Bitcoin hanno avuto effetti negativi sulla sua redditività.

Il trimestre si è concluso il 30 settembre, poco prima del drammatico aumento di BTC

Voglio sapere di più? Unisciti al nostro gruppo Telegram e ricevi segnali di trading, un corso di trading gratuito e comunicazioni quotidiane con i fan delle criptovalute!

Il Trust Project è un consorzio internazionale di testate giornalistiche che costruiscono standard di trasparenza.

Il minatore canadese Bitfarms ha pubblicato i risultati finanziari del terzo trimestre il 26 novembre, mostrando una perdita per il periodo. EBIDTA è stata una perdita di 0,3 milioni di dollari per il trimestre terminato il 30 settembre 2020.

L‘ utile lordo e il margine di Bitfarms sono entrambi diventati negativi su base annua per il trimestre. Tuttavia, alcuni risultati di nove mesi sono ancora riusciti a migliorare su base annua.

I ricavi del terzo trimestre 2020 sono diminuiti del 30% su base annua, da $ 9,7 milioni a quasi $ 6,8 milioni. Rispetto al secondo trimestre del 2020 , i ricavi sono diminuiti del 7,7%. Il margine minerario lordo è crollato anno su anno per il trimestre dal 67% al 26%.

I numeri del margine minerario lordo di nove mesi della società erano leggermente migliori, con il margine che scendeva dal 62% al 38%.

Perché e macchine

Le cifre in peggioramento, afferma Bitfarms, sono state in gran parte dovute all’evento di dimezzamento di Bitcoin dell’11 maggio 2020. Nel frattempo, CAPEX è cresciuto a seguito di un importante aggiornamento progettato anche per tagliare le spese operative.

Tra le altre misure, Bitfarms sta aggiornando il suo complemento di macchine minerarie nei suoi cinque siti minerari in Quebec. In un comunicato stampa di ottobre , la società ha annunciato di aver completato gli accordi di leasing su nuove macchine minerarie che sarebbero state installate entro la fine di novembre.

Inoltre, il comunicato ha fornito informazioni sull’attività dell’azienda. La capacità di hashing è aumentata del 55%, ovvero 431 pentahash (PH) nei nove mesi del 2020.

La società ha noleggiato o acquistato 5.800 minatori WhatsMiner serie M20 e M31 e probabilmente annuncerà l’aggiunta di un altro 504PH a novembre e dicembre

Potenza sudamericana

Bitfarms prevede di espandersi nella regione dell’America Latina nel prossimo futuro e la società sta lavorando per tagliare le spese, comprese le tariffe elettriche.

Il 26 ottobre ha annunciato di essersi assicurata l’uso „esclusivo“ di un massimo di 200 MW di elettricità in Sud America, al prezzo medio di $ 0,02 per kilowattora („kWh“) da un fornitore privato di energia.

L’azienda ha firmato un memorandum d’intesa non vincolante con il produttore.

Har YFI og YFII nådd bunnen?

Har YFI og YFII nådd bunnen?

  • YFII handler mellom støtte og motstand til $ 1220 og $ 1 950.
  • YFI har gjenvunnet støtteområdet på $ 13.000.
  • DeFi-indeksen har brutt ut fra en synkende motstandslinje.

Trust Project er et internasjonalt konsortium av nyhetsorganisasjoner som bygger standarder for åpenhet.
Yearn Finance YFI DeFi

Prisene på både DFI.Money (YFII) og Yearn.Finance (YFI) har brutt ut fra synkende Bitcoin Era motstandslinjer og gjenvunnet viktige støttenivåer like etterpå.

Fortsett å lese nedenfor

Det er mulig at en rekke DeFi-mynter har nådd bunnen etter lang reduksjon, ettersom mange begynner å rally oppover.

YFII-prisen har økt siden den nådde et lavt nivå på $ 970 den 5. november. Kort tid etter å ha nådd lavpunktet, gjenvunnet prisen $ 1.240-området og fortsatte å bryte ut fra en synkende motstandslinje for å nå en lokal høyde på $ 1959.

Imidlertid ble prisen avvist av $ 1 960-området etter å ha validert den som motstand. Dette området er 0.618 Fib-nivået for hele bevegelsen nedover.

Tekniske indikatorer er relativt bullish siden MACD-linjen har krysset over 0 og RSI har krysset over 50. Derfor, så lenge prisen handler over $ 1.240 støttenivå, forventes det å fortsette oppover og til slutt gjøre et nytt breakout-forsøk.

YFII Breakout

Cryptocurrency trader @devchart skisserte et YFI-diagram som viser et mulig bullish vimpelmønster og sier at prisen sannsynligvis snart kan bryte ut.

I likhet med YFII har YFI-prisen også brutt ut fra en synkende motstandslinje og gjenvunnet støtteområdet $ 13.000 kort tid etter.

Vimplen betraktes som et bullish fortsettelsesmønster, og siden det kommer etter et oppadgående trekk, ville det forventes å føre til et brudd.

Hvis prisen bryter ut og fortsetter å bevege seg oppover, kan den nå neste motstandsområde på $ 21.000.

DeFi Perpetual Index (DEFI)

DEFI-indeksen har gått ned langs en synkende motstandslinje siden 28. august, da den nådde en høyde på $ 1181.

Imidlertid genererte den daglige RSI en betydelig bullish avvik i løpet av de siste nedturene, og forårsaket en trendomgang 4. november.

Dette førte til et brudd fra den nedadgående motstandslinjen og fikk den daglige RSI til å bevege seg over 50, et bullish tegn.

DEFI-indeksen forventes gradvis å bevege seg oppover mot nærmeste motstandsområde på $ 675.

Number of Bitcoin ATMs increased 80% by 2020

The growing number of Bitcoin ATMs around the world is evidence of the interest that the use of cryptomoney is arousing.

The number of Bitcoin ATMs around the world continues to grow at a rapid pace. Compared to last year, the increase was 80% despite the problems associated with the COVID-19 pandemic.

A curious fact of these figures presented by CoinATMRadar, is that the rate of installation of these ATMs is 25 per day. Seen from another angle, this means that every hour a new ATM is installed somewhere on the planet. The current number of these machines is 11,700.

The country with the largest number of Immediate Bitcoin ATMs installed is the United States, where 79.1% of the total is concentrated. Within the territory of the United States, there are currently about 9,259. In other countries like Canada, there are also a large number.
Countries with the highest number of Bitcoin ATMs

Currently, the number of ATMs that dispense fiat in exchange for Bitcoin and other crypto-currencies is spread throughout the world. These are the five main places with the highest amount.

  • United States: 9,493 ATMs, representing 81.1% of the total.
  • Canada: 962, for 8.2%.
  • United Kingdom: 289, for 2.4%.
  • Austria: 150, for 1.2%.
  • Spain: 113, for 0.9%.

Among Latin American countries, Colombia stands out, a nation that has 60 Bitcoin ATMs installed within its territory. The list continues with Panama and the Dominican Republic with 16, Argentina with 13 and Mexico with 10 ATMs.

Bitcoin showed its power against DeFi and altcoins

Comparisons with 2019

By this time, in 2019, the number of Bitcoin ATMs reached 6,372. Meanwhile, the growth of the figure between then and now is 80%. All of this shows the increase in interest in cryptology.

Having been the best asset this year, Bitcoin has awakened the desires of many merchants to receive it. Much of that interest has been motivated by news about large investors putting their capital into this digital currency.

Similarly, the movements around Bitcoin are already widely known, as they are talked about openly in the press. For example, the service offered by PayPal on its platform has been one of the biggest propagandistic drivers of digital currencies.

This is one of the reasons why the United States is the place where there are the most ATMs. The number of Bitcoin ATMs is also expected to grow in Europe, given the money printing measures that could threaten an inflationary cycle.

ATMs for changing Bitcoin and buying: what you need to know about them

Africa is projected

Another place where a great potential is projected regarding the use of cryptomonies is Africa. In the two main economies of that continent, South Africa and Nigeria, the number of Bitcoin ATMs has been growing even faster than in nations where this cryptomone is widely traded.

Finally, it should be noted that there are two main manufacturers of these dispensing equipment. The first one is Genesis Coin, which has installed more than 4,000 ATMs. Close by, with some 3,400 ATMs, is the firm General Bytes.

It is expected that the proportional number of them, will continue to rise in direct relation to the increase of Bitcoin’s popularity.

Data to take into consideration

The first Bitcoin ATM was installed in 2013 in the United States, and since then, the number has not stopped growing.
Currently, there are a total of 11,700 of these ATMs worldwide.
In this type of dispensing equipment, you can buy and exchange Bitcoin and other cryptosystems, as well as fiat money.
Colombia is the nation with the largest number of Bitcoin ATMs installed in Latin America. To date, Colombia has about 60 ATMs.

White Paper Bitcoin turned 12 years old

An uninteresting project appeared on the leading resource of opsorption coding Sourceforge.net. It seems that its author does not suffer from a lack of ambition – he took up neither much nor little, and reinvented … money!

This is how the author himself, a certain s_nakamoto, describes this project:

Bitcoin Crypto Profit is a new form of electronic cash, which uses a peer-to-peer network to prevent the problem of „double spending“. The system is fully decentralised, without any server or central authority.

At first glance, this is of course another attempt to „reinvent the bike“, which is already abundant on the Internet. Most likely, like many fruitless attempts in this area before it, this system simply does not work in practice. But perhaps this inconspicuous project with unclear prospects still deserves a bit of your attention. Why, we will try to explain it to you now.
