El Salvador ready to conquer the future and become an international financial center wants to create a “Bitcoin city”
El Salvador wants to create the first Bitcoin city, how? It plans to use 500 million of the planned $1 billion bond issue to buy more crypto-currencies.
The tokenized bond issue, which was developed by Blockstream, will be processed by Bitfinex.
El Salvador, the only country in which bitcoin is a legal tender, is going to build an entire city based on the largest cryptocurrency, President Nayib Bukele said in a Saturday night presentation at Bitcoin Week in El Salvador.
“Bitcoin City” will be located along the Gulf of Fonseca near a volcano. The government plans on locating a power plant by the volcano to provide energy for both the city and bitcoin mining, the president said.
Imagine, a city that has no taxes on income, property, capital gains or wages and allows people to live freely by paying in Bitcoin, what do you think?
According to Bukele, Bitcoin City will be a full-fledged metropolis with residential and commercial areas, restaurants, an airport as well as a port and rail service. The city will be laid out in a circle (like a coin) and in the center of the city will be a plaza that will house a huge bitcoin symbol.
Bukele also said El Salvador plans on issuing $1 billion US “bitcoin bond,” a tokenized financial instrument developed by Blockstream, on the Liquid Network. Of that amount, $500 million will be used to help construct needed energy and bitcoin mining infrastructure and $500 million to buy even more bitcoin. At the cryptocurrency’s recent trading price of about $59,000, that would bring the country’s treasury stash to just under 2,000 bitcoins.
Saisonnalité du Bitcoin, qu’est-ce que l’on peut en dire ?
Le Bitcoin, comme toute classe d’actif importante, à des mois qui sont meilleurs que d’autres, des mois qui lui sont plus favorables ou moins favorables, en tant que trader ou investisseur, il est important de s’en tenir informé.
En résumé, on peut dire que le moins bon mois est le mois de septembre, s’il on se base sur les dix dernières années. bien entendu, il s’agit d’une moyenne, cela se confirme souvent, sauf en 2012, 2015 et 2016.
Les mois qui sont favorables au Bitcoin sont le mois de novembre et décembre, plus spécialement, pour le mois de décembre, la période qui va du 24 au 31 décembre, souvent appelée, le rallye de fin d’année.
Janvier et mars ne lui sont pas trop favorables, par contre le mois de février est régulièrement dans le vert, excepté en 2018.
Le mois de mai est en général à déconseillerr.
En attendant, le meilleur moyen d’investir, est d’investir régulièrement de petite somme, cela vous permettra de lisser le prix moyen de vos achats, sans faire trop d’analyses.
Si au contraire, vous aimez maîtriser au mieux vos investissements, pour le moment, les informations données ci-dessus, sont celles avec lesquelles vous pouvez travaillez, tout en sachant que ce qui s’est passé ne va pas automatiquement se reproduire, ce sont justes des indications, qui sont toutefois utiles car elles permettent de mieux appréhender le marché.
Inflation not for everyone, Bitcoin (BTC) shows 99.996% deflation
The world’s most digital asset, Bitcoin, is a major hedge against rising prices in the economy.
Bitcoin, which is reassuring:
One of the main advantages of BTC is its predictability due to its scheduled scalability, unlike the dollar or other fiat currencies.
This is reflected in the fact that all market players are making increasingly massive investments.
Indeed, large corporations, private equity funds and even pension funds have begun to buy BTC for their treasury bills to protect themselves from inflation.
The normalization of Bitcoin is underway, moving away from the public recrimination of various alleged evils attributed to the cryptocurrency.
As such, the community and traditional financial institutions are beginning to take notice of an asset that appears to have strong fundamentals as a hedge against inflation.
Many institutions looked for a safe haven asset, and Bitcoin then began to emerge as the preferred option due to its anti-inflationary characteristics.
Let’s remember again: unlike the dollar or any other traditional currency, digital currency is designed to have a limited supply, so it can’t be devalued by a government or central bank distributing too much
Stablecoins and regulation, what are the conclusions of the US report?
When you consider that the use of stablecoins is spectacular, and that their capitalization volume has increased by 500% in the last year, you can understand why it intrigues regulators and not only them.
This summer, Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen directed various US regulators to participate in a working group. One of the objectives was to create guidelines for a regulation applicable to stablecoins.
It is now done! On November 1, 2021, the President’s Working Group on Financial Markets (PWG), along with two other banking regulators, published a report on the regulation of stablecoins. Starting from the observation of the risks resulting from the deficiencies in the regulation of these digital assets, it then proposes the initiatives that must be taken by the American legislator.
What does this report say?
In fact, we can see through it, the inability to understand the world of cryptos and therefore stablecoins from people who think they should be treated as other financial assets.
Therefore, they think that regulating stablecoins means subjecting them to the same laws as banks. So a stablecoin issuer, according to them, should have a banking license.
The main notion underlying this report is that of urgency.
Urgency both to regulate digital assets, whose capitalization volumes are exploding, and to stem the birth of stablecoin projects.
In this respect, it should be noted that the report suggests prohibiting non-financial companies from issuing these assets.
News of real estate sales in crypto, special Portugal
The use of cryptocurrencies for large-scale real estate purchases is trending upward, and it’s not just Bitcoin (BTC) anymore.
Proof is in the pudding in Portugal with the sale of
two residences sold for €4.1 million in Cardano’s ADA
It is the company Prometheus International that has developed this real estate project. It intends to offer luxury residences by accepting payments in cryptocurrencies, including the Cardano blockchain, the ADA.
The first two properties to be sold in this way are located in Madeira. They were sold for a total of 4.1 million euros. According to Prometheus, this is “the first and most expensive acquisition of a luxury property in Portugal since the blockchain revolution.”
The buyer wished to remain anonymous, but it is known that he purchased ADA when it was only worth 6 cents. Today, one ADA is traded for almost 2 dollars.
Valkyrie, its SEC-approved ETF, becomes the second approved Bitcoin ETF
Valkyrie’s Bitcoin Futures ETF is the second ETF to begin trading after the ProShares Bitcoin Strategy ETF, thanks to the SEC expediting its approval process for Bitcoin investment vehicles.
The U.S. SEC announced on October 20, the approval of the Valkyrie Bitcoin Strategy ETF. The latter becomes the second Bitcoin futures ETF to be launched after ProShares.
This is great news, not only for Bitcoin, as the arrival of ETFs will give more investors the opportunity to gain exposure to Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies.The
Valkyrie Bitcoin Strategy ETF will be listed under the BTF label.
Sorare s’associe à la Bundesliga afin que les cartes des joueurs des 42 clubs allemands rejoignent la plateforme sous forme de tokens non fongibles (NFTs)
Sorare, la start-up française signe la Bundesliga, l’association représentant les deux ligues de football professionnelles allemandes. Cela regroupe donc les 18 clubs de Bundesliga 1 et les 24 clubs de Bundesliga 2.
« Nous sommes ravis d’être partenaires d’une entreprise aussi dynamique et passionnante. Les NFT sont une technologie d’avenir qu’il ne faut pas sous-estimer – surtout dans le secteur du sport. Je suis donc convaincu que cette collaboration donnera de nouvelles impulsions, » a déclaré Robert Klein, PDG de Bundesliga International.
Bitcoin ETF in the US, finally accepted!After years of waiting, the first Bitcoin ETF (BTC) has been authorized in the United States. In actuality, here’s what happened:
The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has given the green light for the first Bitcoin (BTC) exchange traded fund (ETF) in the United States. Note that the ETF is based on Bitcoin futures and not the cash market.After more than 8 years of advocacy by the crypto industry, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has given the green light to a Bitcoin (BTC) exchange traded fund (ETF). These funds, more commonly known as Exchange Traded Funds, are index funds whose units can be sold or bought directly on the stock market. An ETF offers investors the opportunity to access the BTC market through a traditional brokerage account, without the potential technical barriers to entry or risks associated with holding or transferring BTC directly. The ProShares ETF, based on Bitcoin futures, will be listed unless there is a last minute twist, if so, we’ll keep you posted. The U.S. regulator has authorized the creation of a Bitcoin ETF, however, it is not a fund indexed to the price of Bitcoin, as most players wanted. Instead, the agency has authorized an ETF on BTC futures contracts. This means that the new fund, offered by ProShares, will not give guaranteed shares, but shares linked to a set of contracts to buy Bitcoin in the future.
Paying in Bitcoin with Stripe, soon possible?
It has not been possible to pay in Bitcoin with Stripe for over three years. But it looks like payment giant Stripe is clearly looking to make a comeback in the crypto-game.
Which makes us think this: 4 crypto engineers are wanted by the online payments giant: 3 for positions in major US cities, and 1 remote.
Among the tasks given to the engineers of Stripe’s future “Crypto Team” is clearly the goal of designing and building the “core components to support cryptocurrency use cases.”
It’s a safe bet that with the Lightning Network, Bitcoin will once again be part of Stripe’s crypto-payment solutions, but altcoins may also be part of the mix.
Stripe obviously doesn’t want to fall further behind online payments leader PayPal, which has integrated cryptos into its ecosystem as of late 2020.
Coinbase NFT, everyone is looking for a piece of the pie
The Coinbase platform with its 8.8 million monthly users does not want to miss out on the juicy NFT market.
Thus, Coinbase announced the upcoming launch of:
Coinbase NFT, a marketplace specializing in non-fungible tokens.
This platform will manage the life of the token from creation to sale.
She makes her ambition clear with this statement,
“Just as Coinbase gave millions of people access to bitcoin for the first time in a simple and reliable way, we want to do the same for NFT.”
What if Bitcoin could decrease cocaine production in Colombia?
President Bukele has indicated that El Salvador will mine Bitcoins using the energy of volcanoes, this gives ideas to others, for example with this leftist senator and former candidate for the Colombian presidency,
Gustavo Perdro who finds that mining cryptocurrencies using the hydroelectric energy of his country would be a good idea. Indeed, this would offer an alternative to the production of cocaine for the Colombian economy.
As he indicated:
“What if the Pacific Coast took advantage of the steep river falls in the western mountains to generate all the energy on the coast and replace cocaine with the energy of cryptocurrencies?”
It turns out that after analysis, we can say that the energy potential of the Pacific coast in renewable energy is enormous.
But will Colombia be able to mine Bitcoins or other cryptocurrencies from this green electricity?
Unfortunately, the validity of these theoretical assumptions must be qualified by recalling that large-scale projects in the region have been met with resistance from environmentalists “who consider them harmful to local communities and ecosystems.”
In fact, it turns out that Colombia had previously displayed its pro-Bitcoin stance by hosting the latter’s white paper on government sites.
Will legislators like Perdro succeed in concretely putting a solid project in favor of cryptocurrency adoption in the country?
At least, we hope so, and this would be among the best crypto news we’ll be sure to follow.
MekaVerse, an NFTs project created by two Frenchmen beats all records
Two French artists are at the origin of the MekaVerse project.
MekaVerse is a project of non-fungible tokens (NFTs) of 8 888 Mekas influenced by Japanese manga works such as Gundam, Evangelion, and even Code Geass.
On Wednesday, October 6, 172,876 wallets registered to buy a Meka.
This is a record in the world of NFTs. A craze that has made many disappointed since only 3% of participants were selected.
In the end, 8,593 NFTs were sold at launch at a price of 0.2 Ether (ETH) each, bringing in over 1,718 ETH to the team, or nearly $6.3 million. To date, Meka holders do not know their appearance, which will be revealed on Tuesday, October 12 at 7pm.
On the secondary market, MekaVerse has already generated a volume of 20,300 ETH or about $73 million in less than 3 days.
Crypto-card Bakkt, collaboration with Google to facilitate its distribution
The Bakkt exchange, backed by the parent company of the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE), will collaborate with Google. Why? Simply so that users can spend cryptocurrencies with the Bakkt crypto-card via Google Pay, among other things.
In practice this partnership will allow users to spend cryptocurrencies with the Bakkt crypto-card directly from Google Pay. Thus, customers will be able to make cryptocurrency payments anywhere Google Pay is accepted.
The objective is clearly defined:
to make cryptocurrencies accessible to “millions of consumers
Bakkt was launched in 2018. The platform allows individuals and especially institutions to buy, sell and store cryptocurrencies. The project already brings together several large companies and big names in private equity.
Bakkt also plans to use Google’s cloud to develop new analytics, artificial intelligence (AI)
Mirror, its blockchain blogging platform finally open to all
For the record, in December 2020 Mirror was launched to allow selected writers to publish on the decentralized blogging platform. Contributors could access it by getting voted in weekly competitions using the platform’s native token, with only ten content creators selected per week.
It is roughly the decentralized (and less censorable) equivalent of Medium. The project relies on the WRITE, its native token. Until now, only a few lucky people had the right to open their blog, with a .xyz extension.
That rule is over, however:
Mirror is now available to all users, as the teams announced yesterday. All you need is an Ethereum address to create a blog and start writing.
Mirror, what are the advantages for its users?
It can be said that unlike most large commercial blogging platforms that sell advertising to the traffic generated by the content, publishers on Mirror control their own content because it is stored on a decentralized blockchain instead of the company’s servers. This is a very important advantage.
Another notable advantage is that in addition to providing a blogging service, Mirror has added several features in recent months. NFTs can now be found on the service, and it is now possible to conduct crowdfunding campaigns, as well as auctions, directly on the platform.
In practical terms, this means that once an Ethereum wallet is connected, users can start creating content and embedding multimedia blocks such as videos, iFrames, social media posts, NFTs and auctions.
Blogs can also be imported from other platforms such as Medium or Substack
Bitcoin in El Salvador, the numbers speak for themselves
The adoption of Bitcoin in El Salvador has inspired many videos and articles, not always objective, so what about the facts, what do the numbers say, what can we conclude about the launch of Bitcoin on a country scale?
The situation can be summarized in one sentence:
In three weeks, Bitcoin has enabled the financial inclusion of more Salvadorans than banks have over the past 50 years.
In fact, we can see that El Salvador is the first country in history to :
- Accept Bitcoin as legal tender
- Distribute 30 dollars in bitcoins to citizens who download Chivo (digital wallet offered by the State)
- Hold 700 Bitcoins in reserve (acquired at various price levels)
- Install 200 Bitcoin ATMs in El Salvador and 50 ATMs in the US to help the diaspora send payment streams
- Mine Bitcoin with geothermal energy from volcanoes, 100% renewable energy for an investment of more than 500 million dollars. President Bukele humorously refers to this as the “Volcanode”, a contraction of Volcano and node, a key link in the Bitcoin network
And to conclude:
In three weeks, it appears that El Salvador has “financialized” more than 2.3 million people with a 12-year-old open-source project, compared to 1.7 million with bank accounts. Even the most convinced bitcoiners would probably find such figures hard to believe. Especially since these statistics only concern the Chivo wallet and not the possible alternatives.
Is it true that Axie Infinity (AXS) is planning to launch a decentralized exchange (DEX)?
The answer is clearly yes. The main objective is to facilitate the exchange of tokens used in the game ecosystem.
Jeff Zirlin, co-founder of Axie Infinity (AXS), announced exclusively on The Scoop podcast a decentralized exchange (DEX) project.
DEX has a clear objective, to boost the growth of the game by removing some of the friction that exists for players who have to move their tokens off the platform to trade them.
On this topic, Jeff Zirlin stated:
“People want to acquire and use their tokens in one place without having to constantly use a bridge.
DEX will be built on Ronin, an Ethereum (ETH) sidechain, specifically designed for Axie Infinity.
Cryptocurrencies and money transfers
Sending via crypto is cheaper and faster than traditional methods of sending money. Cryptocurrency is borderless.So it is now easily possible to send money anywhere in the world for a very low cost thanks to cryptocurrencies.
According to the World Bank, approximately 1.6 billion adults are unbanked. This means that they do not have access to banking or financial services. That’s a huge number of people who could see their quality of life improved with cheap Bitcoin and other transfers between different countries.
Monero, the most confidential token that does not attract only the right people
Cryptocurreny, some notions to know.
One of the fundamental principles of bitcoin is that its public ledger, which stores all the token transactions in its history, is visible to everyone. This is why more and more hackers are turning to coins such as dash, zcash and monero, which incorporate additional anonymity.
Decentralized finance, some darker aspects.
Monero, in particular, is increasingly the crypto-currency of choice for the world’s leading ransomware criminals.
“The most sophisticated criminals are using monero,” said Rick Holland, chief information security officer at Digital Shadows, a cyber threat intelligence firm.
Monero, some of its characteristics.
This token was released in 2014 by a consortium of developers, many of whom have chosen to remain anonymous. As stated in its white paper, “privacy and anonymity” are the most important aspects of this digital currency.
The privacy token runs on its own blockchain, which hides virtually all details of the transaction. The identity of the sender and receiver, as well as the amount of the transaction itself, are disguised.
Crypto-fonds, le premier en Suisse à être régulé par la FINMA
Voici le premier fonds à être accepté par le régulateur.
Ce nouveau fonds suivra la performance des 10 principales cryptomonnaies de l’indice « Crypto Market 10 » du SIX Swiss Exchange.
En effet, l’autorité fédérale de surveillance des marchés financiers (FINMA) a annoncé avoir approuvé la mise sur le marché du Crypto Market Index Fund, qui devient ainsi « le premier crypto-fonds conforme à la loi suisse.
Ce fonds est proposé par le gestionnaire d’actifs suisse Crypto Finance. Il sera administré par la société de gestion PvB Pernet von Ballmoos AG, tandis que ses actifs seront sécurisés par la SEBA Bank AG.
La FINMA précise que ce nouveau véhicule d’investissement sera réservé aux investisseurs qualifiés.
Il investira principalement dans des cryptomonnaies et des actifs numériques « basés sur la technologie blockchain ou sur celle des registres distribués ».
Le régulateur indique que le Crypto Market Index Fund ne pourra miser que sur les principales cryptomonnaies, qui revendiquent « un volume d’échange suffisamment important ».
Selon Crypto Finance, le fonds suivra la performance du Crypto Market Index 10, un produit géré par le SIX Swiss Exchange.
« L’objectif poursuivi par le Crypto Market Index 10 consiste à suivre de manière fiable la performance des crypto-actifs et des tokens les plus importants et les plus liquides, mais aussi à offrir un indice de référence investissable pour cette classe d’actifs », explique Crypto Finance.
Cardano will integrate a Chainlink oracle solution for real-time market data.The objective of this new partnership is to offer efficient support to developers working with Cardano to create for example smart contracts or applications related to DeFi.
This is great news, Cardano integrating Chainlink (LINK), a leader in the oracle industry.This technology provides high quality data to support smart contracts. In a nutshell, Chainlink enables the combination of information from the off-chain world with protocols from the on-chain space. Cardano mentioned an example of a use case for data from oracles, namely reliable weather data. The company points out that this data is crucial for “FinTech startups trying to build parametric insurance in sub-Saharan Africa.” Other examples of uses include:
election results, sports statistics or cryptocurrency rates, which will allow DeFi’s apps to operate without the need for third-party verification.Cardano with its ADA token is often referred to as the 3rd generation of crypto. What is certain is that Cardano is proving increasingly bold in entering the DeFi space and positioning itself as a major competitor to Ethereum (ETH). Chainlink, meanwhile, is currently securing billions of dollars in the decentralized finance, insurance or gaming sectors. Its technology provides global enterprises and major data providers with a universal gateway to all blockchains.
Cryptomonnaies, quel est le profil des crypto-investisseurs français ?
Et si on faisait l’état des lieux de l’écosystème des cryptomonnaies en France ?
Découvrons qui investit en France dans les cryptomonnaies.
Focus sur les crypto-investisseurs français au travers de leurs critères socio-démographiques et leurs différents profils.
Pour la première fois en France, une étude dresse le portrait des crypto-investisseurs français. Cette étude réalisée par CryptoCheck en collaboration avec Just Mining et Cryptoast vous apporte de nombreux éléments pour mieux comprendre l’écosystème local et sa communauté.
Voici les résultats, 7 points à retenir :
- + de 95% des investisseurs sont des hommes.
- Plus d’un investisseur sur trois a entre 20 et 29 ans.
- L’âge médian du crypto-investisseur est situé autour des 30 ans.
- Près de 29% des répondants appartiennent à la catégorie des cadres ou supérieur.
- 86% d’entre eux, reconnait être motivée par la potentielle plus-value offerte par l’industrie des crypto-actifs.
- 71% des personnes interrogées se disent sensibles aux valeurs portées par la blockchain.
- Près de la moitié (48%) des crypto-investisseurs interrogés ont rejoint l’écosystème des cryptomonnaies en 2020.
Of the 100 largest companies in the world, how many are using blockchain?
New data reveals that the vast majority of the world’s largest companies use this technology.
The data was shared by analyst Blockdata. They reveal that seven years ago, in 2014, only two major companies were using blockchain: PayPal and Walt Disney.
In 2021, 81 of the 100 most capitalized companies in the world are now using this distributed ledger technology.
There is only one conclusion: large companies are turning to blockchain en masse.
Not surprisingly, it is the blockchain solutions proposed by Hyperledger that are favored first by large companies. Microsoft, Alphabet (Google), Amazon, Visa or Samsung use them. But Ethereum (ETH) is not far behind: the blockchain is used by PayPal, Nvidia, McDonald’s and Coca-Cola.
The third place is occupied by Quorum, followed by Corda, and Mediledger occupies the fifth place.
Interestingly, eleven of the companies listed did not stick to a single blockchain and use multiple solutions.
Microsoft, Alphabet, Accenture and SAP are the most open, with a combination of 4 or more blockchains.
Wall Street news, are banks cryptocurrency friendly or not?
On Wall Street, there is growing talk of institutional adoption of crypto.
A growing number of public companies, large banks, hedge funds and wealth managers are rushing to increase their exposure to Bitcoin and other digital assets.
It’s safe to say that Wall Street is leading the race. While Bank of America created a new cryptocurrency research team and allowed clients to trade BTC futures in July, Goldman Sachs partnered with cryptocurrency merchant bank Galaxy Digital to trade Bitcoin derivatives. BlackRock, the world’s largest asset manager, has also found digital asset futures attractive.
Goldman Sachs has even filed an application with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) to launch an exchange-traded fund (ETF) for decentralized finance and blockchain.
Ironically, JPMorgan, led by the same Jamie Dimon who called bitcoin a “fraud” and threatened to fire employees who trade BTC, opened up access to six crypto funds to all of its private banking clients this month.
One can only note, that as always, banks criticize crypto-currencies when they don’t make them money, but when they start to understand how they could make money by offering them to their clients, it becomes much more serious and interesting to own cryptos, going through their services of course… 🙂
Paypal a fini de déployer son service d’achat de cryptomonnaies au Royaume-Uni
Cela signifie que tous les résidents britanniques peuvent acheter, vendre et détenir des cryptomonnaies en les gérant depuis leur compte Paypal.
Le Royaume-Uni est la deuxième nation à avoir accès à ces services après que le géant l’ait déployé aux États-Unis en octobre 2020.
La solution n’inclut pas un grand nombre de cryptomonnaies, puisque seules quatre d’entre elles sont disponibles : Bitcoin (BTC), Ether (ETH), Bitcoin Cash (BCH) et Litecoin (LTC).
Les clients britanniques pourront acheter ces cryptos en utilisant leur compte bancaire, leur solde PayPal ou leur carte bancaire.
PayPal ne facture pas les clients pour le stockage des cryptomonnaies de ses clients. Toutefois, la société applique des frais de trading allant de 0,5 GBP pour les achats de moins de 25 dollars à 1,5% pour les conversions de plus de 1000 GBP.
PayPal a également prévu de proposer d’autres services dédiés aux cryptomonnaies dans les mois à venir. En effet, l’entreprise américaine souhaite lancer une « super app » avec de nouvelles fonctionnalités cryptos.
Paypal est donc bien décider à étendre encore ses services liés à la cryptomonnaie à l’avenir et pour ce faire y travaille déjà actuellement de manière active.
Satoshi Nakamoto, inauguration of a statue of him in Hungary
This bronze statue, displayed in Graphisoft Park, was sculpted by Gergely Réka and Tamás Gilly. The two men tried to convey the idea that “we are all Satoshi” by making the computer scientist’s face reflective.
This way, people who look at the mannequin can see their own image, realizing that they too have a role to play in the Bitcoin network.
If the features of this mannequin are so poorly detailed, it is because we don’t know anything about Satoshi Nakamoto – a pseudonym that may represent a group of individuals. His face, height, sex, weight and age are unknown, making it impossible to create a true-to-life statue of him.
The model is wearing a hoodie with the Bitcoin logo on it.
The statue echoes recent statements by U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren, who has been at war with cryptocurrencies for several years. In June, she said that “Bitcoiners” represent a “shadowy, faceless group of super-coders”.
In truth, it doesn’t matter who Satoshi Nakamoto is. All that matters is that he managed to create a decentralized protocol that allows anyone to transfer value anywhere in the world without having to ask anyone’s permission.
This “faceless super-coder” has already changed the lives of many people, providing them with economic opportunities – especially in countries where BTC allows them to preserve their wealth amidst rampant inflation or unwarranted repression.
And contrary to what the politician thinks, just because the creator of Bitcoin has insisted on remaining anonymous does not necessarily mean he is armed with evil intentions.
Financial institutions only need to allocate 5% of their investments to Bitcoin for it to reach $500,000
That’s why it’s not delusional to think that Bitcoin can rise sharply.
Cathie Wood, CEO of asset management firm Ark Invest, spoke about her optimism about Bitcoin during the Salt conference, which took place in New York.
The CEO of asset management firm Ark Invest recently reiterated her prediction of a half-million dollar Bitcoin.
For the financier, the price of BTC could be multiplied by more than 10 within 5 years, to reach 500 000 dollars.
She estimates that it would be necessary, to reach such a price, that the financial institutions allocate 5% of their investments to the digital currency developed by Satoshi Nakamoto.
This will require close collaboration with regulators to drive wider adoption of digital assets.
This idea was shared by Kevin O’Leary, the multi-millionaire star of the “Shark Tank” program. He believes that many investors are still hesitant to turn to cryptocurrencies due to an overly unclear regulatory framework.
Bitcoin news, et si l’Ukraine faisait comme El Salvador?
On en est qu’au stade de la rumeur, mais elle se fait persistante. On est donc en droit de se poser cette question:
L’Ukraine compte-t-elle adopter le Bitcoin (BTC) ?
Dans les faits, on peut constater que des délégué du président ukrainien, V.Zelensky, ont eu un entretien avec des membres du gouvernement du Salvador, et ceci en toute discrétion.
Selon plusieurs rapports, Zelensky souhaite faire de l’Ukraine une « crypto-nation », et favoriser l’adoption de ces nouveaux actifs, dont le Bitcoin, au sein du pays.
Pour rappel, l’Ukraine a déjà légiféré au sujet des cryptomonnaies ces derniers jours afin de clarifier le plus possible le statut des cryptomonnaies en Ukraine.
Selon l’expert financier russe Vyacheslav Evgenyev, l’Ukraine voudrait désormais aller plus loin :
elle planifierait une adoption complète du Bitcoin en tant que monnaie ayant cours légal, d’ici à 2023.
Cela permettrait au pays de s’appuyer sur deux devises, à l’instar du Salvador qui utilise désormais le BTC ainsi que le dollar américain.
El Salvador and Bitcoin, today, September 7, 2021, is the big day for its launch as an official currency.
Bitcoin is now legal tender in El Salvador.
In concrete terms, bitcoin will be legal tender, alongside the dollar, in all shops and financial institutions in the country.
Residents will be able to use it through an application on their cell phone. ATMs will be available to withdraw dollars from their bitcoin accounts.
Parliament has just approved the creation of a $150 million fund to ensure the convertibility of the cryptocurrency.
Seen from abroad, skepticism reigns. “With its risky bet on bitcoin, El Salvador is becoming a laboratory for cryptocurrencies,” the Financial Times judges.
Bankers and financial authorities are worried. The Central American correspondent of the Frankfurter Rundschau speaks of a “bold experiment”.
Interestingly, the fact that the value of the cryptocurrency is determined “exclusively by the market” makes it a “highly volatile” currency, insists the Salvadoran Foundation for Economic and Social Development (Fusades). It also considers “unconstitutional” to impose “the mandatory acceptance of bitcoin as a means of payment.”
The popular President Bukele, criticized for his authoritarianism and his disregard for the separation of executive, legislative and judicial powers, has accused the opposition of wanting to “scare” the population by denigrating bitcoin.
For the head of state and his government, bitcoin will allow Salvadorans to save $400 million in bank fees when sending money by the diaspora, particularly those living in the United States, which accounts for 22% of the country’s GDP.
However, more than two-thirds of El Salvador’s 6.5 million people oppose a decision by the popular President Bukele for the first time and say in two separate polls that they want to continue to use the U.S. dollar, El Salvador’s legal tender for the past 20 years, exclusively.
GameStop is interested in the world of NFTs, a project in sight?
GameStop has indeed a very concrete project that could prove to be very lucrative for the platform, indeed, the goal would be to open an exchange platform of NFTs backed by Ethereum, which could bring “several million users” on their network.
GameStop is banking on NFTs. The first rumors about the development of a marketplace had already appeared in May, after it declared that it was “officially getting into NFTs”.
GameStop has not made any official statement, so on what basis can we make such a claim?
We can infer that, because GameStop recently launched a presentation page on the nft.gamestop.com subdomain called “GameStop NFT: Change the game”. It reveals that it is in the process of “building a team” of specialists in the world of NFTs.
Tim Draper, here is his prediction about the price of Bitcoin
Billionaire Tim Draper repeats his prediction:
Bitcoin could hit $200,000 to $250,000 in late 2022 or early 2023
On what basis does he make such a prediction?
It was in 2018 that Tim Draper made his first prediction. The digital asset developed by Satoshi Nakamoto was then trading at less than $10,000, after an all-time high of nearly $20,000 reached in December 2017.
The man believes that the value of BTC will eventually and irrevocably rise, as the digital currency will one day be accepted across the board.
He also mentions the limited supply of Bitcoins (21 million) in the factors that should allow it to continue its surge.
The second point that should help Bitcoin reach new heights is the inflation rate of fiat currencies.
The billionaire explains that citizens are increasingly worried about the future of their savings, as governments keep printing money. This should lead more investors to turn to BTC as a hedge against the inevitable high inflation rate.
Make money with a TV series, shooting is about to startThe filming of Hold on for Dear Life, the first TV series focused on the world of cryptocurrencies, is about to begin.
To fund the series, the producers have launched a token called FDL on the Securitize platform. They will also offer NFTs from each episode.Indeed, producer Rob Weiss is working on a series called Hold On for Dear Life. The title refers to the HODL currency, which was born after a typo on a Bitcoin (BTC) forum. The currency refers to users who hold on to their cryptocurrencies over the long term until a currency’s price explodes. We already told you about it in DeFi News, but this time the shooting is about to start.
Hold On for Dear Life, what you need to know:Beacon Pictures, the company behind long-running ABC drama Castle and feature films such as Air Force One, is developing what it calls the first scripted series about and financed by crypto. Composed of 10 episodes, the series features Mel, a young woman who decides to launch a token as a tribute to her dead friend, Aveer. To carry out her project, she is accompanied by a team composed of a cryptocurrency anarchist, a Lamborghini lover and a purist of open source technologies. They will have to confront the “centralized powers in a breathtaking and inspiring journey”. As part of the project, an ERC20 token called FDL (For Dear Life) was launched on the US platform Securitize.
It allows its holders to receive benefits based on the income earned by the series directly in their Ethereum wallet (ETH).Mark Pennell of Beacon Pictures said, “Crypto is about community. The show is an extension of that community. So we embraced innovation by creating an opportunity for crypto entrepreneurs to participate in a show that reflects many of their own stories. The filming of the series is expected to begin during the month of August. According to Deadline, the first episodes of season 1 will be broadcast in March 2022.
Why choose a decentralized trading platform and is it safe?
A truly decentralized trading platform allows you to trade without an account and therefore not send your money to a broker and then have to ask for it again with all the inconveniences that this entails.
Trading directly from your Metamask account allows you to keep full control of your money.
The platform is not manipulated to close as soon as it goes wrong, as has been the case on at least two of the larger centralized trading platforms. The price would drop and suddenly, traders could not sell, a so-called momentary breakdown but very timely for the broker prevented traders from selling or subsequently buying back at the best time…
Another important point to know, how is the price set?
While all other leveraged platforms use their own derived prices, which often result in prices that do not match the actual asset price, we use our custom network of real-time Chainlink node operators to obtain the median price from 8 data sources.
Bitcoin Switzerland: 85,000 merchants to accept cryptocurrency payments
Switzerland maintains its lead in integrating cryptocurrency into the real economy and remains Europe’s leading crypto-nation.
Thanks to Worldline and Bitcoin Switzerland, 85,000 Swiss merchants can now accept payments in cryptocurrencies, including Bitcoin (BTC) and Ether (ETH). All with little or no effort.
By partnering with Worldline, Europe’s leading payment services provider,
Bitcoin Switzerland will enable approximately 85,000 merchants to accept payments in digital assets.
As a reminder, it is possible to pay your taxes in Bitcoin (BTC) or Ether (ETH) in a Swiss canton and BTC distributors are present throughout the country.
Avalanche (AVAX) and if its price starts to rise?
AVAX, which has been growing in popularity in recent weeks, seems to be benefiting from the expansion of the decentralized finance (DeFi) ecosystem, but also from Ethereum’s limitations.
The leading blockchain “smart contract” network still suffers from higher fees and transaction times than its newer competitors.
Indeed, what makes it look like a possible price spike is the fact that transactions conducted on
Avalanche Bridge would be 5 times cheaper than those conducted on its predecessor, the Avalanche-Ethereum Bridge (AEB).
The technology is said to offer “a better user experience than any cross-chain bridge launched to date.”
If Ethereum fails to keep up with soaring transaction costs on its network in the near future, there is a good chance that assets and liquidity will continue to shift to alternative chains such as Avalanche.
Another important point to know:
all fees for transactions made on Avalanche are “burned”.
A mechanism that benefits all participants, as the “hard cap” of the 720 million AVAX offering will decrease over time.
This contraction could help increase the value of the tokens in circulation.

GameFi : la prochaine révolution de la DeFi avec Tron qui en serait son futur leader ?
Depuis la fin de l’année 2019, la DeFi qui se développe énormément grâce à l’écosystème d’Ethereum n’a cessé de croître et de faire parler d’elle.
Pour rappel, cet écosystème associe les services financiers classiques et les solutions de décentralisation proposés par les blockchains.
Cependant, celui-ci pourrait bien se faire voler la vedette par un nouveau phénomène à la mode : la GameFi.
Ce nouvel écosystème combine cette fois l’univers des jeux vidéo et la DeFi. Bref, il est le résultat de la gamification des mécanismes financiers.
GameFi, pratiquement, c’est quoi ?
La GameFi donne naissance à des jeux dans lesquels les utilisateurs peuvent gagner des revenus en jouant.
À l’instar du free-to-play nous retrouvons désormais des mécanismes de play-to-earn, signifiant littéralement « jouer pour gagner » (en l’occurrence, des cryptomonnaies).
Est-ce promis à un bel avenir ?
Si on en croit les performances de CryptoBlades qui est hébergé sur la Binance Smart Chainm on peut répondre sans hésiter par l’affirmative, en effet, plus de 681 000 joueurs à travers le monde ont joué sur CryptoBlades sur une période de 30 jours.
Son concurrent Axie Infinity sur Ethereum, lui, en comptabiliserait 298 000, ce qui a créé un volume quotidien de plus de 27 millions de dollars.
Tron (TRX) mise tout sur les jeux:
Le fondateur de Tron, Justin Sun, a exprimé son avis sur l’écosystème GameFi et ses évolutions à venir :
« La GameFi va être la prochaine grande chose qui rendra la DeFi, les NFT et l’espace crypto au sens large, faciles à comprendre et à impliquer […] Tron est heureux de s’associer à APENFT et WINKLink pour construire un écosystème GameFi robuste et accessible à tous. »
Cela explique pourquoi la fondation Tron, celle à l’origine du réseau et de la cryptomonnaie éponyme, a décidé de créer un fonds de 300 millions de dollars qui permettra le financement de projets GameFi et NFT sur la plateforme Tron au cours des 3 prochaines années.
Are the biggest banks in the world interested in cryptos or is it just individuals or small investors?
Here is a numerical answer that clearly answers this question:
55% of the world’s largest banks have invested in projects related to the blockchain ecosystem
This means that more than half of the 100 largest banks in the world have bet on projects related to cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology.
This exposure of banks can be broken down into direct or indirect investments in cryptocurrencies or companies related to blockchain technology, either by the banks themselves or through one of their subsidiaries.

How is it that the price of Bitcoin is bouncing around so much and so fast? What is behind it?
In fact, unlike the last big declines, the share of individual investors in Bitcoin is decreasing and is being replaced by large investors and even institutional investors who are increasingly investing in BTC.
This means that before, a drop was amplified by a panic effect among individuals, this is still the case, except that now, large investors often take it as good news for them to get into the BTC market at a good price.
So institutional investors were not frightened by the more than 50% drop in Bitcoin’s price this year, quite the contrary.
In fact, the share of transactions worth more than $1 million on the Bitcoin network has doubled over the past year. These are numbers that clearly demonstrate an institutional foray into the crypto-sphere.
All the hard numbers clearly demonstrate the influx of a new era of institutional and high-net-worth capital into the Bitcoin network since 2020.
For example, the Long and Short Term Holder Supply Ratios indicator shows us that the supply owned by long-term holders (LTH) recently reached an all-time high at 82.68%.
The fact that large and institutional investors are now involved is changing and will certainly change the volatility of Bitcoin and some other major cryptos in the long run, so one should stop looking too much at what Bitcoin and the crypto-currency world in general has done in the past, because the fundamentals, the players active in this market and therefore those influencing it are no longer quite the same, so what happened in the past is less and less reflective of what might happen in the future.
Marvel releases its first NFT with the legendary Spider-Man

One Dogepper costs three dogecoins, according to the Burger King website.
NFTs are here to stay, really?
It seems that yes, the NFTs are there and are strengthening their presence more and more through companies that specialize in concepts that revolve around them, such as NEFTiPEDiA.

More and more projects are born and built around NFTs, in fact, we are only at the beginning of the exploitation of their potential which is expanding and asserting itself more and more.
Smaller and smaller leverage is a trend, but not everywhere
Binance and FTX lower their trading leverage to x20.
While they were offering leverage of up to x101 and x125 respectively, FTX and Binance are reversing course and are now limiting this option to a factor of x20 for their trading platform. A decision that comes in a context where global regulators seem to be taking a close interest in the regulation of cryptocurrency trading platforms.
It’s funny to see that leverage was widely practiced and without any problem by the main exchanges, but that all of a sudden, since the financial regulators of different countries are interested in them, they think that in the interest of users, it is better to lower the effects, surprising.
Fortunately there are still platforms for professional traders and those who know how to trade with large leverage effects, we find in decentralized trading solutions, of course, it should not be advised to the beginner, but leaving the choice is important.
24,000 cryptocurrency ATMs around the world
2021 alone saw the installation of more than 10,000 new crypto ATMs around the world, with the United States leading the way.
The machines are located in 75 countries. The United States tops the list with 21,161 locations, followed by Canada with 1,698 locations and the United Kingdom with 174 locations.
There are 42 manufacturers of cryptocurrency ATMs. Genesis Coin tops the list with 9,813 machines, followed by General Bytes with 5,720, Bitaccess with 2,766 and Coinsource with 1,684 machines.
Last year, the global count rose to 13,993 ATMs with a 119.56% growth after 7,620 new machines were installed. So far, 2021 has seen the installation of 10,037 ATMs. To keep things in perspective, data suggests that crypto ATMs are being installed at a speed of roughly 52.3 ATMs per day.
What if Cardano became a traditional cryptocurrency alongside bitcoin and ether …
Cardano, Ether and Bitcoin, the three common cryptocurrencies in the future?
Cardano is similar to Ethereum in that it is a protocol that has a lot of potential technical applications. There is a lot of enthusiasm for the cardano, as well as various stablecoins.
Indeed, cardano (ADA) is a promising cryptocurrency that could join bitcoin and ether to form the “big three” of traditional cryptocurrencies.
We must not forget that the main objective of the Cardano project is to set up a Proof-of-Stake blockchain that offers a considerable capacity for processing transactions with controlled inflation over a long period (up to 10 years). ).
This is one of the reasons why investors are looking to buy Cardano.
Polygon (MATIC) launches a studio dedicated to video games and NFT
Polygon which happens to be a second layer solution dedicated to the Ethereum network has made an important announcement.
Polygon launches a video game studio
The company also made this statement: Polygon Studios wants to bring the world from Web 2.0 to Web 3.0.
Polygon (Matic) has been supporting projects for a long time by partnering with different ecosystems, which regularly fuels the news of decentralized finance.
For example, there are partnerships with well-known DeFi projects like the decentralized trading platform using Gfarm2.
Polygon Studios already has extensive partnerships with legendary video game publisher Atari, as well as digital real estate projects Decentraland and The Sandbox. OpenSea, the NFT platform, has also answered the call.
Few details are known about this new Polygon initiative at this time, but it is known that it aims to provide infrastructure and support for creators and investors who want to enter the world of NFT and video games.
Mastercard lorgne du côté de l’USDC afin de permettre à ses clients de payer avec leurs cryptomonnaies
L’émetteur de cartes de paiement Mastercard et la société Circle vont lancer un projet d’expérimentation pour un système de conversion entre cryptomonnaies et monnaies fiat. Le géant américain du paiement va ainsi proposer le stablecoin USDC en tant qu’actif relais pour permettre à ses clients de réaliser des opérations financières du quotidien en utilisant des cryptomonnaies.
Le stablecoin USDC bientôt sur le réseau Mastercard
Mastercard vient de faire un nouveau pas de géant dans son adoption des cryptomonnaies, quelques semaines après avoir annoncé vouloir ajouter cette nouvelle classe d’actif à son réseau.
Dans un communiqué publié ce mardi 20 juillet sur son site Internet, la société Circle, à l’origine du stablecoin USDC, a annoncé un partenariat avec Mastercard pour proposer un service de conversion de cryptomonnaies en monnaies fiat.
Dans le cadre de cette expérimentation, les deux entreprises mèneront un projet pilote où l’USDC servira de passerelle entre les cryptomonnaies détenues dans les portefeuilles numériques des consommateurs et la monnaie fiat versée aux commerçants.
Is the battle between Aave and Twitter on?
While Jack Dorsey’s other company Square is opening up to cryptocurrencies, the CEO of Aave has confirmed that he will launch an alternative to the social network, on Ethereum.
In short, this is the announcement that we will hear about again and again:
Aave will launch a Twitter alternative on Ethereum this year
A few days ago, we learned that Square, Jack Dorsey’s payment platform, was creating a new company dedicated to financial services on Bitcoin (BTC).
The project already shows great similarities with Aave, an open source and non-custodial protocol that enables the creation of decentralized financial markets.
Stani Kulechov, the founder of Aave, also noted the similarities, and he announced this weekend that if Square was coming to play on Aave’s turf, Aave would also be playing on Jack Dorsey’s turf: Twitter.
“Since Jack [Dorsey] will build Aave on Bitcoin, Aave will build Twitter on Ethereum.”
Jack Dorsey, PDG de Twitter et fondateur de Square Inc, va-t-il créer l’évènement dans l’écosystème du Bitcoin?
La nouvelle entreprise de Square, TBD, sera axée sur la création d’une plate-forme de développement ouverte. Son unique but sera de faciliter la création de services financiers non dépositaires, sans autorisation et décentralisés.
Dorsey n’a pas révélé grand-chose sur le prochain projet open source développé par Square, à part le fait que Mike Brock dirigerait la nouvelle équipe de développement. Alors que les protocoles de la DeFi construits sur Ethereum ont été un grand succès car ils se sont transformés en un écosystème de plusieurs milliards de dollars en quelques années.
Le nouveau Bitcoin Defi pourrait apporter l’une des mises à niveau de blockchain les plus notables pour le meilleur réseau de crypto-monnaie.
Les contrats intelligents sont la clé du fonctionnement du défi basé sur Ethereum, et si Square construit un produit similaire, nous pourrions également nous attendre à des fonctionnalités de contrat intelligent pour le réseau Bitcoin. Le développeur principal du projet a déclaré que la société serait transparente dans son approche et révélerait plus de détails à mesure qu’elle avancerait.
L’engagement de Dorsey envers Bitcoin est sans précédent et il s’est montré au fil des ans. Après le lancement des services de paiement Bitcoin Square crypto, le fondateur a fait passer cet engagement au niveau supérieur. Tout comme le co-fondateur d’ Ethereum Vitalik Buterin , Dorsey travaille à faire de Bitcoin un écosystème complet à part entière.
Damien Hirst proposes with his NFT project to leave an interesting choice to the buyers of his works, discover which one?
His project, called The Currency, is a collection of 10,000 NFTs, which correspond to 10,000 unique paintings of spots created by the artist in 2016.
These physical artworks are currently stored in a secure vault in the UK.
Each is individually signed and numbered, and the handmade paper used includes myriad security features such as watermarks and holograms, making them difficult to copy.
Digital or Physical?
What’s more, buyers of the NFTs will have until July 27, 2022, to decide if they want to exchange their digital token for the corresponding physical artwork.
If they decide to do so, the NFT will be burned. But if they decide to keep the NFT — here’s the kicker — the physical artwork associated with that NFT will be burned instead.
A new NFT platform proposed by the SUSHI community.
The decentralized exchange platform that represents a true one-stop shop for obtaining different services from DeFi will certainly soon offer a new integration, buying and selling NFTs.
Now with Shoyu, NFTs are being added to the mix.
The platform was proposed to the Sushi community by former SushiSwap core developer LevX, who plans to be the new project’s lead developer as well.
The Sushi community largely embraced the Shoyu proposal, with 98% of voters in a poll saying they wanted to hire LevX as the product manager/lead dev of Shoyu for one year.
Who does this concern first?
Shoyu will be an NFT platform geared towards both collectors and artists, guided by a “Japanese sensibility and aesthetic” that gives users a beautiful space to showcase their NFTs, according to the proposal.
Shoyu will be competing with many other NFT marketplaces, both established and burgeoning, but the SushiSwap community has proven time and time again that they’re capable of standing tall next to even the most imposing DeFi behemoths.
Decentralized trading news
Trading no account, no broker, finally available and with leverage.
The world of DeFi has been enriched by a new player that fills an important need among traders, the ability to trade directly, without an account, without a broker and in a secure manner, discover the tutorial that allows everyone to trade directly without sending his money to a platform.
If you speak French, Chinese, Arabic, etc., no worries, you can also access the trading décentralisé and understand everything, this site is translated into all languages through the integrated button of Google translation.
The equivalent of one billion U.S. dollars have been spent on crypto through Visa.
More than US$1 billion was spent on crypto-linked Visa cards in the first six months of 2021.
According to Crypto.com’s Consumer Spending Insights Report for 2020, crypto spending on its Visa card grew 55 percent year-over-year, with online spending increasing 117 percent of overall spending growth. The card, launched in 2018, is available in more than 30 countries. In March, Crypto.com signed a global agreement with Visa that includes primary membership in the Visa network in Australia, meaning the company can issue its card directly in the country.
Visa, which transacts in 160 currencies daily and settles every evening in 25 currencies, has been upgrading its infrastructure to allow financial institutions to settle with Visa in stablecoins starting with USDC, a stablecoin backed by the U.S. dollar. Earlier this year, Visa and Crypto.com announced the launch of a pilot that would allow Crypto.com to send USDC to Visa to settle a portion of its obligations for the Crypto.com Visa card program.
Le staking fait son appartition dans le domaine bancaire grâce à Sygmun Bank.
Sygnum qui est une banque suisse a annoncé que très prochainement elle autoriserait le jalonnement Ethereum 2.0.Cela signifie que les clients de la banque pourront accéder aux services de staking basés sur Ethereum via la plateforme bancaire de Sygnum.
Sygnum se considère comme la première banque approuvée par la FINMA à entrer dans l’ espace de jalonnement ETH 2.0.
Il est également bon de rappeler les propos de JPMorgan sur le sujet: JPMorgan estime que le jalonnement crypto (staking) pourrait représenter une industrie de 40 milliards de dollars d’ici 2025
Offering businesses the ability to buy, sell and hold bitcoins. This is an important agreement..
Indeed, financial institutions using Allied’s platform (Allied Payment Network) will be able to offer their customers the ability to buy, sell and hold bitcoins. In addition, Allied will keep bitcoin on its balance sheet.
The facts: “The partnership enables financial institutions to offer their customers the ability to buy, sell and hold bitcoin,” the announcement explains, stating that “Allied is the industry’s first bill payment provider to integrate this service into its platform and offer it to institutions. “
Bitcoin, about to collapse?
Some people keep thinking it and saying it, except that confusing volatility, a correction that was perfectly predictable with a price collapse, is perhaps a way of thinking that is more irrational than anything else.
Bitcoin, collapse or not? The facts:
- currently Bitcoin Still Commands the 9th Largest Market Capitalization in the World
- Bitcoin is only 67% of the global valuation of tech giant Google and other valuable companies and products.
Indeed, we should not ignore that BTC is 36% of Facebook, 57% of the total market capitalization of money and 67% of Google. The first dog on the list, of course, is gold with its $10 trillion market valuation. Yet, as far as gold is concerned, BTC represents 6% of the way and 28% of Apple’s massive $2.29 trillion market cap.
It is also interesting to note that more and more banks are talking about it, here is an example.
Global investment bank JPMorgan predicted that the bitcoin price drop will likely be over when the crypto-currency’s dominance rises back above 50%. “I think that’s another indicator to watch here as to whether this bearish phase is over or not,” the firm’s analyst explained.
In conclusion, and to remain factual, we can say that there are few signs that large investors would be tempted to buy the bitcoin decline,
4000 German funds, Spezialfonds will be allowed to invest in crypto.
Under new rules that came into effect on July 1, 2021, German Spezialfonds will be allowed to invest up to 20% of their portfolios in crypto-assets.
This represents an important step towards legitimizing crypto-assets as an asset class in Germany.
“Market experts already expect the new regulations to trigger significant investments in the crypto markets,” said Tyrybon, a partner at Austrian law firm Schoenherr Attorneys at Law.
The lawyer cited estimates from Sven Hildebrandt, CEO of German firm Distributed Ledger Consulting (DLC), who sees a potential €350 billion ($415 billion) influx into crypto assets.
Twitter has created its own NFTs and offered them to a select few.
The official Twitter account posted a GIF representing the 7 non-fungible tokens (NFTs), accompanied by the text “140 free NFTs for 140 of you, my friends”, in reference to the initial 140-character limit of a Twitter post.
These rather unique NFTs trace the history of Twitter. They include the very first tweet from its creator, Jack Dorsey, and a GIF representing all the logos used by the platform since its creation.
Twitter forged 7 NFTs on the Rarible platform, based on Ethereum.Not wishing to sell them, Twitter directly offered 20 versions of each of the NFTs to interested users, who had to express their interest by commenting on the announcement tweet.
U.S. Senator Advises Saving Bitcoin (BTC) for Retirement.
Convinced that the dollar is in danger of losing value, the elected official advises pension funds to offer retirement plans that include cryptocurrencies.
U.S. Senator Cynthia Lummis recommends that Americans invest in Bitcoin (BTC).
Convinced that crypto-currencies have a future, this Republican politician sees Bitcoin as a store of value rather than a currency.
This is what it says:
“I see it as a great store of value, but I don’t see it right now as a medium of exchange […] So I want to buy and hold. I encourage people to buy and hold,” Cynthia Lummis says in an interview with CNBC this June 29, 2021.
In the rest of the interview, Cynthia Lummis believes that the cryptocurrency queen is an attractive investment for Americans looking to secure their retirement and she ends by confirming that this is exactly what she has done.
Jay-Z and Jack Dorsey talk about NFT and the Tidal platform
Jay-Z, the founder of the Tidal platform and the boss of Twitter spoke at a Twitter Spaces conference, and they both highlighted the potential of cryptocurrencies and NFTs to fund artists on a platform like Tidal.
In particular, Jay-Z highlighted the capabilities of smart contracts in terms of compensation:
With blockchain and smart-contracts, there are a lot of creative ways to participate in the music world, in its economy and everything is recorded, so it’s particularly transparent
The CEO of Square, the main shareholder of Tidal, explains that the latter “will spend a lot of time” looking at how artists are paid, in order to improve things. Tidal isn’t the only platform looking at this, either. Other projects, such as Opulous (OPUL), are also trying to combine blockchain and the music industry.
Mexican billionaire wants to create the country’s first bank to accept cryptos
The third richest man in Mexico, Ricardo Salinas Pliego, has doubled down on his support for Bitcoin, revealing plans to open the first BTC accepting bank in the country.
Salinas is the founder and chairman of Grupo Salinas, a Mexican corporate conglomerate spanning television and radio network TV Azteca, consumer electronics retailer Grupo Elektra, football club Mazatlan F.C., and major local bank, Banco Azteca.
Banco Azteca, which had annual revenue of $2.54 billion in 2020, operates in Mexico, Panama, Guatemala, Honduras, and Peru.
The company, which began operating the bank in 2002, offers consumer credit for goods, personal and small business loans, credit cards, mortgages, and payroll systems.
According to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index, Salinas’ fortune has risen by $2.8 billion this year to tag $15.8 billion.
The news outlet added that Salinas said he invested 10% of his liquid portfolio into Bitcoin last year.
He has professed his veneration for the asset on multiple occasions
Binance is forced by the FCA to stop its activity in England
United Kingdom’s Financial Conduct Authority issued a warning to Binance Markets Limited that it can not.operate in the country.
In reality, will it really change?
The FCA’s warning, in reality, may not make much difference to the situation in which
Binance currently operates. Binance Markets Limited is not the entity offering derivatives in the UK.
As Binance is a global crypto business based outside the country, the FCA rules do not apply to all of the companies in the Binance group.
It is important to note that Binance customers can continue to use the platform, knowing that the UK authorities are not required to protect them in the event of a breach.
The crypto exchange responded via its Twitter account, assuring its customers that “the FCA UK notice has no direct impact on the services provided on Binance.com” and that its relationship with its users has not changed.
Wall Street is gradually opening up to cryptocurrencies, example with CitigroupIt seems that the giant Citigroup has launched a business unit that will focus on cryptocurrencies and blockchain. This shows the growing interest of Wall Street in cryptomoney. Citigroup does not specify at this time what services will be developed within this business unit, explaining that it will “develop a robust and scalable value proposition.” However, this initiative shows that the big banks are opening up to cryptocurrencies. A few days ago, we learned that Goldman Sachs was considering offering exposure to Ether (ETH) to its clients. For its part, JPMorgan was particularly “bullish” on Bitcoin (BTC), estimating that the crypto-currency could reach $130,000 in the long term. So we are indeed witnessing a gradual integration of crypto-currencies into the traditional finance sector.
Crypto Bank, la Suisse a une bonne longueur d’avance, exemple: SygnumSygnum est la première banque d’actifs numériques au monde. Avec sa licence suisse de banque et de négociant en valeurs mobilières, ainsi que sa licence de services de marchés de capitaux à Singapour, Sygnum permet aux investisseurs institutionnels et privés qualifiés, aux entreprises, aux banques et à d’autres institutions financières d’investir dans l’économie des actifs numériques en toute confiance. La société est la première banque d’actifs numériques dotée d’une solution bancaire réglementée contrôlée de manière indépendante, évolutive et pérenne.
Fondée sur un héritage suisse et singapourien, Sygnum permet à ses clients d’investir dans l’économie des actifs numériques en toute confiance.
Sygnum et DeFi:Sygnum a fait le annonce aujourd’hui, où il a révélé qu’il lancerait des services bancaires réglementés pour plusieurs jetons de finance décentralisée (DeFi). La banque crypto proposera plusieurs jetons DeFi comme Aave (AAVE), Aragon (ANT), Curve (CRY), Maker (MKR), Synthetix (SNX), 1 pouce (1NCH) et Uniswap.
More and more billionaires are interested and investing in cryptocurrency
Here is a good example with: Mark Cuban.
Billionaire Mark Cuban, a former bitcoin (BTC) skeptic that has now embraced decentralized finance (DeFi), has been welcomed by the Bancor Network team for choosing the platform as his preferred decentralized exchange (DEX).
For those who are unaware, Mark Cuban is the owner of Dallas Mavericks, an American professional basketball team and he’s also an executive producer of the Shark Tank reality television show.
Bitcoin has had its fair share of critics in its entire history and Cuban used to be one of them. In December 2019, Cuban reportedly said the world’s flagship cryptocurrency has no chance of becoming a reliable currency, as it is “too difficult to use, too easy to hack, way too easy to lose, too hard to understand, and too hard to assess a value.”
While Bancor remains a pioneer in the decentralized finance (DeFi) space, the coming of automated market makers like Uniswap (UNI), amongst others, somehow took the shine away from the former. However, the team has been integrating innovative features into the Bancor Network aimed at making it more attractive to users.
In February 2021, the team launched Bancor Vortex, a yield farming solution designed to offer Bancor users a passive revenue stream. Even with its impressive milestones, Bancor is not relaxing on its laurels, as the team is currently working on Bancor v3, which will bring even more exciting features to LPs.

A Panamanian MP is proposing the adoption of Bitcoin as legal tender in his country. Is there any chance that Panama will do what El Salvador did?
Independent Congressman Gabriel Silva expressed his enthusiasm for the topic in response to El Salvador’s adoption of Bitcoin, explaining that this is a crucial moment.
“This is important. And Panama can’t be left out. If we want to be a true center for technology and entrepreneurship, we must support cryptocurrencies. We will prepare a proposal to present to the Assembly. “
What’s unique about Panama is that its constitution prevents the government from restricting legal tender to only a few currencies. In theory, this can therefore encourage the adoption of a cryptocurrency, as this barrier is non-existent.
We note that like El Salvador, Panama has adopted the dollar as its common currency. It circulates on par with the balboa, a local currency that tracks the dollar at a 1:1 ratio. The difference is that there is no hegemonic political party, like that of El Salvador’s President Nayib Bukele. So if there is an adoption, it will certainly take longer.

A cryptocurrency bunker worthy of a James Bond movie
DeFi News, surprising information.
A top secret crypto bunker was created by the Spanish company Prosegur.
The firm, which first announced its entry in the crypto custody arena in November last year and has launched a subsidiary named Prosegur Crypto, claims to have “more than 20” institutional clients from the world of global finance on its books.
The “bunker’s” location in Spain has not been revealed – and no photos are yet forthcoming. But the firm claimed that 100 security protocols are in place in what the media outlet described as “a military-grade protection environment, fitted with biometric access security and closed-circuit cameras” that is “totally isolated from the outside” with “internet connectivity” completely blocked from inside the bunker.
The bunker was built with the aid of a partnership deal with the Israeli cybersecurity company GK8, which is reportedly masterminded by Israeli crypto sector and secret service “veterans” – as well as a former Israel Defence Forces general who once headed the military’s Cybersecurity Intelligence unit.
Inside the secret bunker, a Hardware Security Module (HSM) generates, stores, and protects private keys, which are stored “inside a briefcase,” with access permitted only “to a very limited number of people” who carry out “completely manual management of transactions.”

Goldman Sachs facing cryptocurrencies, the full voltface …
DeFi News, when a major bank turns around.
Goldman Sachs Finally Recognizes Cryptocurrencies As A New Asset Class.
Remember: A year ago, banking giant Goldman Sachs invited its clients to a discussion when it came to cryptocurrency. His report was particularly scathing, considering that Bitcoin and altcoins were not an asset class. The bank also completely advised against this kind of investment.
Goldman Sachs, the volteface:
It seems the institution has had time to think it over since, as a new report explains that cryptocurrencies appear to be on the way to last.
It must be said that Goldman Sachs has shown several signs of opening up in recent months. It has something: 40% of its clients were exposed to cryptocurrencies last March thanks in particular to the reopening of its cryptocurrency trading service. And we learned a few weeks later that she was considering launching an ETF with exposure to Bitcoin.
The icing on the cake: the banking giant earlier this month invested $ 15 million in Coin Metrics. The spectacular performance of Bitcoin’s price since the end of last year has therefore got the better of the institution’s hesitation.
Crypto news, this is what we can currently say about Goldman Sach and its attitude towards cryptos.

Rather surprisingly, the real estate agent by the name of Kyle Seyboth only accepted the DOGE to close this historic sale.
