Los NFT deberían venderse por miles de millones, no millones

¿Cómo valora un NFT? El mes pasado, Jack Dorsey vendió su primer Tweet como NFT por casi tres millones de dólares. Elon Musk lo siguió, vendiendo un Tweet sobre NFT como NFT. Otro multimillonario menos seguido, el ex director de Disney Michael Eisner, anunció planes para hacer pública su empresa, Topps, el equipo de tarjetas de béisbol, a través de SPAC, con valoraciones vinculadas a los coleccionables que se ramifican en NFT.

A medida que Jack y Elon se van, también lo hace el resto del dinero inteligente. Y artistas inteligentes

La capacidad de un artista para explotar su música, imágenes u otras creaciones en todas las formas en todo el universo siempre se ha visto gravemente obstaculizada por los intermediarios. Distribuidores, abogados, derecho de autor internacional universal. Demostrar que posee algo significa establecer una cadena de títulos y otros dolores de cabeza comerciales que probablemente se pospondrán para más adelante.

Entonces, para evitar ser puesto bajo tutela, o no ser dueño de su propio nombre, trabajo, semejanza, derechos y todas las otras formas en que las personas sucias se han desarrollado para asegurarse de que el trabajo de un artista rinda más para casi todos, excepto para el artista, ¿por qué no lo haría? ¿Eres NFT todo lo que haces?

¿Quieres ser la persona que pagó una cena de sushi de $ 25 en 2011 con diez Bitcoin? En estos días, si hay un tren tecnológico al que subirse, FOMO no es la única razón. Los Tweets de Musk han sido motores del mercado durante años a pesar de la FTC (o más bien, gracias a).

Todo el mundo habla de Tina, el nuevo documental de HBO. Es difícil imaginar que lo único que obtuvo del divorcio con Ike fue el nombre, „Tina“. Si solo existieran las NFT, entonces. Todo estaría bien allí en la cadena de bloques

Aprendiendo de los Tinas y Brittanys, artistas como Shontelle, artista de grabación platino y compositor nominado al Grammy, están utilizando NFT para poner en funcionamiento su propiedad intelectual, explotándola de la forma en que lo haría un distribuidor, pero sin tener que renunciar a la mayoría de las ganancias a los agentes, tarifas. , abogados, minoristas. No solo vende NFT IP, sino que crea experiencias NFT que se basan en la explotación de sus propiedades intelectuales.

De esta manera, Shontelle, como una de las primeras músicas negras en emitir sus propios coleccionables de alta tecnología, está allanando el camino para que artistas, animadores y atletas más diversos utilicen creativamente NFT para conectarse directamente con los fanáticos a través de su subasta House Party NFT. (esta semana del 8 al 11 de abril, en owens.market , un centro de NFT). Ahora no solo tiene más control de su arte, sino que tiene más control de sus ganancias monetarias. Es tener su propio control creativo, como cualquier artista ahora puede, que normalmente solo los multimillonarios tenían anteriormente y le genera más dinero que el valor monetario intrínseco de la propiedad intelectual subyacente.

Entonces, ¿cuánto vale realmente una NFT? Estamos aprendiendo mucho sobre modelos de valor este año. Los economistas no saben si la deuda global que rompió el récord emitida por los gobiernos durante la pandemia conducirá a la inflación o no (¡¡Vamos! ¡¡Esto solía estar en el cuestionario de macroeconomía !!!). Las acciones de GameStop y AMC se separaron de las proporciones de precio a ganancias durante tanto tiempo, ahora la única respuesta a lo que vale algo es, lo que el mercado dice que vale.

Mayor of Miami praises Bitcoin as a „stable investment product“ in times of crisis

Mayor Francis Suarez is following the advice of some well-known crypto experts.

Francis Suarez, the Mayor of Miami, is the next influential person to publicly praise Bitcoin ( BTC ), further underscoring the adoption of the market-leading cryptocurrency

In a corresponding tweet on Thursday, Suarez describes Bitcoin as a „stable investment product in a year marked by incredible instability“. He added that he had been educated about digital currency by prominent crypto experts such as Tyler Winklevoss and Anthony Pompliano.

Both Winklevoss and Pompliano subsequently responded to Suarez’s tweet. Tyler said that he and his brother Cameron will bring the Mayor of Miami with him a signed copy of their book „Bitcoin Billionaires“ the next time they are in town.

Meanwhile, Pompliano said that Miami was well on the way to becoming the first “Bitcoin City” in the USA. An idea that another Twitter user took up by advising the mayor to incorporate blockchain technology into the city’s political life. Suarez does not seem averse to this, because he replied: „We will definitely check that!“

Francis Suarez was elected as an independent candidate for Mayor of Miami in November 2017

Prior to his career in politics, he worked as a lawyer and worked in the real estate industry.

Miami is traded as one of the most interesting cryptocurrency destinations in the US , due to the city’s loose regulation and abundant capital. The North American Bitcoin Conference, attended by well-known industry giants such as Charles Hoskinson , Roger Ver and Riccardo Sagni, was held in Miami earlier this year.

The current soaring of the market-leading cryptocurrency, which is supported by increased interest from major investors and companies, has brought Bitcoin back into the spotlight. The adoption of the cryptocurrency is increasingly seen as an asset in times of crisis and economic uncertainty.

‚Upside Potential Remains Very Very Big for Bitcoin‘

Legendarisch financieel adviseur: ‚Upside Potential Remains Very Very Big for Bitcoin‘.

Onlangs deelde de legendarische financiële adviseur en bestseller-auteur Ric Edelman hem de laatste gedachten over Bitcoin tijdens een interview met John Darsie, Managing Director van het wereldwijde forum voor thought leadership en het netwerkplatform SALT.

In 1986 richtten Ric Edelman en zijn vrouw Jean Edelman de financiële planning- en investeringsmanagementfirma Edel Financial Services op. In 2018 fuseerde Edelman Financial Service met een Bitcoin Profit ander financieel adviesbureau Financial Engines tot Edelman Financial Engines. In 2018, 2019 en 2020 werd Edelman Financial Engines door Barron uitgeroepen tot het beste onafhankelijke adviesbureau in de VS.

Edelman is ook de oprichter van de RIA Digital Assets Council (RIADAC), die tot doel heeft „financiële adviseurs de kennis en vaardigheden te geven die zij nodig hebben om hun cliënten accuraat, relevant, tijdig en waardevol advies te geven over blockchain en digitale activa“.

In een interview dat afgelopen dinsdag (15 december) op SALT’s YouTube-kanaal werd gepubliceerd, als onderdeel van SALT Talks („een doorlopende serie digitale interviews met ’s werelds belangrijkste investeerders, makers en denkers“), sprak Edelman over waarom financiële adviseurs steeds meer geïnteresseerd raken in Bitcoin en waarom we waarschijnlijk steeds meer grote instellingen (zoals pensioenfondsen en verzekeringsmaatschappijen) in Bitcoin gaan investeren.

Volgens een rapport van The Daily HODL, met betrekking tot de eerste groep, zei hij:

„Het opwaartse potentieel blijft erg groot voor Bitcoin en het is het buitenproportionele potentieel van het rendement. De aandelenmarkt maakt 10% in een jaar. Bitcoin beweegt regelmatig 10% omhoog of omlaag in een dag. En dus is het het potentieel voor buitenproportionele rendementen. Het is de nummer één presterende activaklasse van de laatste één, drie, vijf en tien jaar sinds de oprichting en veel mensen geloven dat het nog in de kinderschoenen staat. Dus daar is een enorme kans voor…

„De belangrijkste reden dat adviseurs zeggen dat ze geïnteresseerd zijn in dit is het feit dat Bitcoin niet gerelateerd is. De koersbewegingen hebben niets te maken met iets anders, niet met de aandelenmarkt, de obligatiemarkt, de rentevoeten, de inflatiecijfers, het economisch beleid, de actie van de Fed, niets. En als u echt gelooft in diversificatie, wilt u ongecorreleerde en nog betere niet-correlevante activa in uw portefeuille“.

En wat die laatste groep betreft, had Edelman dit te zeggen

„Het gesprek verschuift van ‚Je valt op als je het bezit‘ naar ‚Je valt op als je het niet bezit‘ en ik denk dat die trend zich nog verder zal doorzetten. Nu je Bitcoin kunt kopen bij PayPal en je MicroStrategy bijvoorbeeld meer dan een half miljard hebt geïnvesteerd…

„We bevinden ons duidelijk in een omgeving waar Bitcoin nu mainstream is, en dit legitimeert de asset, en er zal een blijvend sneeuwbaleffect zijn van dit waar mensen zullen beginnen te beseffen dat het routine is, net zoals de gouden ETF goud tot een routinematige asset voor portefeuillediversificatie heeft gemaakt. De eerste twee weken haalde ETF een miljard dollar op. Dus ja, ik denk dat we een brede diversificatie en een grotere mainstreaming door instellingen, schenkingen, pensioenfondsen, verzekeringsmaatschappijen, enzovoort zullen blijven zien.

Swiss crypto bank Sygnum tokenises shares ahead of IPO

Sygnum says it is the first to tokenise its shares.

 

Sygnum, a major cryptocurrency bank based in Switzerland, has successfully tokenised its shares on a blockchain ahead of its planned IPO.

 

According to an official announcement on 14 December, the bank tokenised its shares on the Ethereum blockchain using a proprietary tokenisation platform called Desygnate.

 

The blockchain-based platform issues digital representations of shares and associated rights and obligations on a distributed ledger, offering an alternative to traditional capital raising options such as an IPO. Since the end of November 2020, the platform is expected to be fully compatible with Crypto Trader the new Swiss Distributed Ledger Technology Act, which will come into force in February 2021.

 

Mathias Imbach, co-founder of Sygnum and CEO at Desygnate, said Sygnum is the first bank in the world to tokenise its own shares:

 

„We are excited to be the first bank in the world to tokenise its shares. This is an important milestone and a step closer to our goal of creating more direct and efficient access to ownership and value. This includes new participation models for our clients and partners. This will ultimately provide liquidity for our loyal shareholders.“

Through this tokenisation, Sygnum aims to simplify a number of processes related to the company’s shares. Buyers, for example, need to inform Sygnum to manually update the shareholder register. This should become easier. Tokenisation reduces the administrative burden that arises from requirements in writing. This particularly relates to the transfer of shares between buyers and sellers.

 

Sygnum is currently looking at various strategies for a future IPO. A dual listing on the SIX Digital Exchange is also possible.

 

Sygnum is headquartered in Zurich and claims to be the first Swiss company to become a crypto bank. The bank has consistently launched new crypto services and was the first to issue a stablecoin, a digital franc.

Bitcoin whale activity since December 7

Learn here the details about the activity of Bitcoin whales since December 7. The accumulation has decreased, but will it continue?

Bitcoin whales have managed to keep a pretty active week, as far as mobilizing BTC is concerned. In general, they mobilized 185,490 BTCs from December 7th to 13th. Learn about the trends that prevailed and what you can expect in the short term from these actors of the crypt world.

What will be the price of Crypto Bull for 2021 according to Anthony Pompliano?

December Bitcoin Whale Activity Summary

According to Whale Alert reports, the whales transferred 93,937 BTCs between unknown wallets. In that sense, this translates into 50.64% of the total mobilized this week. This may be transfers of funds from the exchanges‘ wallets.

Meanwhile, a total of 39,954 BTC (24.54%) were reported as accumulated against a total of 43,129 BTC (23.25%) transferred from unknown wallets to exchanges. From this it can be inferred that the whales are at a moment where they prefer to sell their tokens to make a profit.

Likewise, when evaluating the flow of activity of Bitcoin whales in December, we will note that they reached a peak on December 10, when they mobilized 51,804 BTC. Something particularly interesting about this weekend is that the whales decreased their activity as usual, but the few operations they have performed have been of considerable size.

Have the whales had an impact on the price of BTC?

During the week, BTC was close to USD 17,700 according to CoinDesk. This happened between December 9th and 10th. However, it then began to rise towards USD 19,000 and at the time of writing BTC is changing hands for a price of USD 19,254. The latter represents a 4.10% increase in the last 24 hours.
Bitcoin price chart (BTC) from December 7th to 13th.

On December 10 there was more stockpiling because Bitcoin whales took advantage of the slight drop to buy, and then with the increase in BTC they sold part of their earnings and decreased the stockpiling. In this sense, we can say that it’s not unreasonable to expect that they will continue to introduce some liquidity into the market before the end of the year.

The reason is that as more companies are interested in BTC, it has the potential to increase its value. We are now seeing public companies like MicroStrategy using leverage to acquire a larger position in Bitcoin.

Optimistic expectations for BTC remain for 2021. „Next year, as annual budgets are reopened, I expect a huge increase in demand to enter the industry from companies and institutional investors,“ said Michael Gord of Global Digital Asset.

 

$ 165 million in Bitcoin transferred for just $ 1.20 in fees

Bitcoin is known for its large transactions at low fees.

A user just sent $ 165 million worth of bitcoin with a fee totaling around $ 1.20.

Bitcoin may be the easiest and most efficient way to send large sums of money

Most Bitcoin evangelists know that two of the main advantages of cryptocurrency are its ease of use and its lack of restrictions when transferring.

On the day of December 8, a user made a gigantic bitcoin transfer of $ 165 million in a single transaction . The transaction fee was 0.00006520 BTC, or about $ 1.20.

Someone just transferred $ 165,000,000 to #bitcoin and paid a fee of 0.00006520BTC or around $ 1.20
One dollar and twenty cents.

This is a transaction fee of 0.00000072%

No third party needed to do this.
No one could stop him.
No one can reverse that.

Most Crowd Millionaire know that one of the main advantages of cryptocurrency is its ease of use and the absence of restrictions when transferring.

Earlier today, a user sent a massive $ 165 million bitcoin transfer in a single transaction. The transaction fee was 0.00006520 BTC, or about $ 1.20.

Decentralization keeps the network from being run and abused by a single party, but the ability to transfer large sums quickly and cheaply is perhaps one of its most important use cases.

Bitcoin versus other value transfer platforms

While Bitcoin is quickly becoming a dominant global asset, there are other platforms that offer much more value. How do the pricing structures compare then?

At the retail level, if you want to send money to someone, you may be charged a flat or proportional fee (or both) to send money to another user.

For example, if you want to send money through PayPal, it will typically charge specified users a 3.5% fee on the transferred value. If this rule had been applied to the Bitcoin transfer above, this user would have spent $ 5.7 million in fees.

On another platform, such as MoneyGram, a popular international retail money transfer platform, users are charged a fee of US $ 5-20 depending on how quickly they want to receive their money. If you choose the $ 5 fee, it may take 3-5 business days for your money to be transferred.

Even though some complain that Bitcoin transactions are not instantaneous like cash or credit cards, they can still be completed within minutes if the network is not busy.

Asset portability

No one knows who this mystery user is or who he’s sending the money to, but it’s easy to move value across borders with Bitcoin.

One of the biggest drawbacks of physical assets is the lack of portability. If someone has $ 165 million and has to move it to another country, doing so physically would likely be a huge burden.

La calma dopo la tempesta: Bitcoin a $17.000 come rimbalzi DeFi

La Bitcoin ha apparentemente recuperato il livello di 17.000 dollari, mentre le monete DeFi sono state recuperate dopo il bagno di sangue di ieri.

Bitcoin ha recuperato un po‘ dal massiccio calo del prezzo di ieri a 16.250 dollari. La maggior parte delle monete alternative sono rimbalzate anche nei loro cali più significativi, e la capitalizzazione totale del mercato ha recuperato oltre 30 miliardi di dollari in un giorno.

La vendita del venerdì nero di Bitcoin

Dopo settimane di aumenti graduali che hanno portato BTC a meno del 3% dal suo massimo storico del 2017, ieri la principale moneta criptata è crollata. Il Bitcoin Pro è passato da un massimo di 19.500 dollari a 16.250 dollari in poche ore. In altre parole, BTC ha perso oltre 3.000 dollari in meno di un giorno.

Anche se la criptovaluta è rimbalzata al minimo intragiornaliero e ha recuperato 17.000 dollari, è ancora più di 2.000 dollari al di sotto del massimo del 2020.

Le possibili ragioni di questa massiccia picchiata non sono ancora chiare, nonostante le numerose speculazioni. Tuttavia, alcuni membri della comunità, come Mati Greenspan, ritengono che una tale correzione sia salutare in questa fase.

Altri, come Max Keiser, hanno detto comicamente che questa è la vendita del Venerdì Nero di Bitcoin che permette a chi ha perso di entrare.

Da un punto di vista tecnico, Bitcoin deve superare le linee di resistenza a 17.430, 17.620 dollari, e 18.200 dollari per riprendere l’encierro. In alternativa, 16.600, 15.900 e 15.400 dollari sono i livelli di supporto più significativi in caso di un altro ritiro.

Altcoins Take A Breather

Anche la maggior parte delle monete alternative ha registrato guadagni impressionanti nelle ultime settimane. Tuttavia, il crollo di ieri li ha colpiti ancora di più di BTC con numerosi crolli dei prezzi a due cifre.

Sebbene la maggior parte di esse siano ancora in rosso su una scala di 24 ore, sono anche rimbalzate ai minimi giornalieri. L’etereum è sceso a 485 dollari, ma è tornato a 525. L’Onda ha toccato il fondo a 0,45 dollari e ora si trova a 0,55 dollari.

Bitcoin Cash (-6%), Binance Coin (-4%), Chainlink (-2,5%) e Litecoin (-7,5%) sono ancora in rosso nelle ultime 24 ore, nonostante abbiano recuperato alcune perdite. Il cardano è l’unica top ten delle monete con un guadagno dopo un aumento del 2%.

SushiSwap conduce la sessione di recupero con un aumento del 30% a 1,37 dollari. Seguono Aave (18%), Yearn.Finance (17%), Kusama (14%), Reserve Rights (12%) e Synthetix (10%).

Nel frattempo, moltissime monete DeFi come Sushi, Aave’s LEND, Yearn Finance, e così via, stanno registrando anche oggi guadagni di recupero a due cifre.

Another country is ready to issue its digital currency

Brazil has joined those countries that are considering creating their own digital currency (CBDC). Brazil’s Minister of Economic Affairs, Paulo Guédez, told journalists about this.

According to the official, his country needs a technological breakthrough. Many countries are now seeking to introduce digital technologies Bitcoin Formula review in a wide range of industries. Fintech is one of the most promising areas, and Brazil should not lag behind other countries.

The Minister stressed:

Brazil will have its own digital currency. Brazil is ahead of many countries.

Gueades did not reveal any more details. Recently the head of the country’s Central Bank, Roberto Campos Neto, stated that the financial sector needs to modernize its payment infrastructure.

The digital version of the Brazilian real may go into circulation as early as 2022. Moreover, the regulator assumes that such an instrument will be used both in the domestic market and in international transactions.

At the moment, the People’s Bank of China has made the most progress in establishing the CBDC. Recently the head of the Central Bank of China, Yi Gang, spoke about the successful testing of the digital yuan.

Ripple Mulls UK bevæger sig, når fastholdende amerikanske reguleringsfremskridt hindrer vækst

Forordninger har altid været en af ​​de vigtigste definerende faktorer for kryptoindustrien. Siden kryptokurver fik almindelig opmærksomhed, har tilhængere kæmpet for, at regulatorer accepterer disse aktiver positivt. I nogle lande har dette fungeret. De Forenede Stater har imidlertid ikke været på samme linje. Nu kan et af landets største blockchain-virksomheder forlade som et resultat.

SEC bevæger sig ikke hurtigt nok

Sent i sidste uge meddelte Brad Garlinghouse, administrerende direktør for blockchain-giganten Ripple Labs, at firmaet kunne flytte til London. I en tale til CNBC forklarede Garlinghouse, at USAs ugunstige krypto-regler var blevet en byrde, og at de kunne vælge at pakke sammen i de kommende måneder.

Baseret i San Francisco driver Ripple Labs XRP-token og et af USAs største blockchain-firmaer. Som Garlinghouse forklarede, har USAs Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) endnu ikke defineret, om XRP er et værdipapir eller en valuta. Ripple er i øjeblikket i en retssag med nogle investorer over det påståede salg af uregistrerede værdipapirer. Som Garlinghouse forklarede, har denne manglende klarhed fra SEC ikke hjulpet firmaet på nogen måde.

Prisen for Det Forenede Kongerige forklarede Garlighouse, at dets regulator – Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) – var steget op på pladen i de seneste måneder og nu udvikler en effektiv ramme til at adressere kryptokurver.

”Det, du ser i Storbritannien, er en klar taksonomi, og Storbritanniens FCA tog en ledende rolle i karakteriseringen af, hvordan vi skulle tænke på disse forskellige aktiver og deres brugssager. Resultatet af det var klarhed om, at XRP ikke er et værdipapir og bruges som en valuta. Med den klarhed ville det være fordelagtigt for Ripple at operere i Storbritannien. ”

Problemer med ‚regulering gennem håndhævelse‘

Ripple har flirtet med ideen om at forlade USA før. Tidligere på måneden forklarede virksomhedens medstifter Chris Larsen, at firmaet overvejede en udgang til et mere venligt miljø. I en tale med en Fortune Magazine-reporter på Los Angeles Blockchain Summit sagde Larsen, at USA havde været „sørgeligt bagud“ med den næste økonomiske innovation, som sandsynligvis ville dreje sig om kryptokurver.

Sammen med den amerikanske regerings tilsyneladende „regulering gennem håndhævelsespolitik“ kan denne manglende forberedelse drive virksomheden ud. Larsen tilføjede, at firmaet overvejede at flytte til lande som Schweiz, Storbritannien og Japan. Hvis organer som SEC ikke ønsker at spille bold, er der ringe grund til, at de skal forblive her.

”Jeg tror ikke, at kropsholdningen i SEC i dag muligvis kan blive værre for [krypto- og blockchain] -industrien. Det er bare ‚knus det og skub det væk.‘ “

Håndhævelsestaktik fra agenturer som SEC har tidligere fået betydelig kritik. Agenturet fik især flak, da det stoppede den planlagte lancering af GRAM-token fra den mobile messaging-platform Telegram i maj.

Telegrams dom tiltrak også intern kritik. Hester Pierce, kommissær hos agenturet, sagde i en tale på Blockchain Week Singapore, at hun ikke støttede SEC’s handling mod Telegram. Ligesom Larsen kritiserede hun også SEC’s „regulering gennem håndhævelse“ -taktik og forklarede, at lovgivningsmæssig integritet hviler på at straffe parter, der overtræder udformede love, ikke om at lave nye love i farten.
