Bitfarms compra 48.000 Bitcoin Miners, planos para aumentar a Hashpower em 5 Exahash

A empresa canadense Bitfarms anunciou que está comprando 48.000 sondas de mineração Microbt Whatsminer para expandir sua capacidade. A Bitfarms destaca a aquisição de novos mineiros que aumentarão a potência de hash da empresa em aproximadamente 5 exahash por segundo (EH/s).

Bitfarms para Adquirir 48.000 Mineradores de Mineração de Alto Potência Bitcoin da Microbt

A mineradora canadense Bitfarms (TSXV:BITF, OTC:BFARF) anunciou na terça-feira que a empresa entrou em um acordo onde planeja adquirir 48.000 plataformas de mineração fabricadas pela Microbt. A empresa chinesa Microbt é a fabricante dos dispositivos Whatsminer, que são algumas das mais poderosas máquinas de circuitos integrados específicos para aplicações (ASIC) do mundo. Por exemplo, a empresa Whatsminer M30S+++ é a mineradora SHA256 ASIC mais rentável do mercado atualmente, de acordo com os dados atuais.

O anúncio da Bitfarm na terça-feira explica que a Microbt se tornou o „fornecedor de escolha da empresa“. Durante os últimos oito meses, a Bitfarms disse que adquiriu 12.000 máquinas do fabricante chinês de plataformas de mineração. A Bitfarms enfatizou que a empresa espera que o embarque das plataformas de mineração comece „em ou antes de janeiro de 2022“. „Os mineiros serão instalados em nossas instalações existentes e novas que estão atualmente em desenvolvimento“, disse a empresa. A Microbt disse que o fabricante de equipamentos de mineração está ansioso para fornecer os 5 EH/s de mineradores à Bitfarms.

„Estamos muito entusiasmados em melhorar e expandir nossa parceria com a Bitfarms“, disse Vincent Zhang, diretor de vendas globais da Microbt, durante o anúncio de compra. „Os mineiros a serem fornecidos à Bitfarms são muito confiáveis e estáveis“. Estes mineiros gerarão um tremendo valor para a Bitfarms em suas operações de mineração e [para] seus investidores“, acrescentou Zhang.

O CEO da Bitfarms alude à escassez global de bolachas semicondutoras

Além disso, o CEO da Bitfarms, Emiliano Grodzki, explicou que a aquisição ajuda durante um período de demanda excessiva por ASICs.

„O fornecimento de mineiros será um dos maiores desafios para o futuro próximo devido à escassez global de pastilhas usadas para criar chips semicondutores, que é um componente vital nas plataformas de mineração“, detalhou Grodzki. „Nossa estratégia será continuar a aumentar nossa própria infra-estrutura e operações profissionais e conduzir a mineração em nossas próprias instalações que aumentem a eficiência operacional e a rentabilidade“, acrescentou ele.

News.Bitcoin.com relatou na semana passada que os fabricantes chineses de mineração estão muito pressionados pela demanda e quase todos os fabricantes de sondas de última geração estão completamente esgotados. Mesmo o próprio anúncio da Bitfarm observa que a entrega está prevista para pelo menos até ou em janeiro de 2022 e „as plataformas de mineração finais deverão chegar em dezembro de 2022“. Muitas empresas de mineração listadas publicamente alavancaram seu enorme poder de compra a fim de adquirir as plataformas de mineração ASIC com antecedência.

Além disso, a compra da plataforma Bitfarm 48.000 Microbt Whatsminer, é a segunda maior aquisição de mineração desde que o Marathon Patent Group estabeleceu um recorde de compra de 70.000 equipamentos de alto desempenho Bitmain Antminer S19 no final de 2020. O anúncio do acordo da Bitfarm com a Microbt não revelou um valor de compra de um dólar para os 48.000 mineiros. A Marathon divulgou em dezembro que gastou US$ 170 milhões em seu acordo com o fabricante chinês de plataformas de mineração Bitmain.

Why the bulls are extremely optimistic

After Dogecoin now DeFi? Why DeFi bulls are extremely optimistic

The trading craze is coming to an abrupt end on many exchanges, with trading in stocks and cryptocurrencies being halted time and again. Could the DeFi sector be one of the main winners of the trading hype of the last few days?

This week the news is rolling over and the hype in the stock and crypto markets is enormous. After the Reddit group r/wallstreetbets first catapulted GameStop’s share price, a short time of Bitcoin Trader later it was Dogecoin’s turn. Within the last seven days, the price of the meme coin has risen by over 500 percent. But that’s not all.

On Friday morning, the rumour mill on Twitter started churning, with many suggesting that Elon Musk has now invested in Bitcoin. Subsequently, not only did Bitcoin skyrocket, but many other cryptocurrencies joined the price rally.

What impact could the developments of the last few days have on the DeFi sector?

Not only Dogecoin and Bitcoin (BTC) saw huge price increases, but also the „ETF token“ DeFi Pulse Index (DPI) rose by 28.10 percent.

This week, the DeFi index benefited most from the price gains of the lending project Aave (AAVE) and the decentralised exchange (DEX) UniSwap.

AAVE gained 49.73 per cent and UNI even rose by over 70 per cent. In addition, the total value locked indicator, which shows how much money is in the DeFi sector, also grew enormously.

Inversor multimillonario dice que los bancos centrales no se detendrán ante nada para tomar medidas drásticas contra Bitcoin

Frank Giustra, inversionista multimillonario y financista minero, advierte que los gobiernos y los bancos centrales harán todo lo posible para sofocar el viaje de Bitcoin hacia la adopción universal.

En una entrevista de Stansberry Research con Daniella Cambone, Giustra señala que si los bancos centrales logran emitir sus propias monedas digitales del banco central (CBDC), probablemente no querrán competir con Bitcoin

“Estoy especialmente preocupado por lo que harán los gobiernos y los bancos centrales si Bitcoin alguna vez se convierte en una amenaza, una amenaza real, para sus propias monedas soberanas. Como saben, muchos bancos centrales están contemplando la posibilidad de emitir sus propias monedas digitales. Y no van a querer esa competencia allí y lo van a poner muy difícil. Los gobiernos y los bancos centrales harán que sea muy difícil que Bitcoin sea adoptado universalmente. Pondrán obstáculos en el camino „.

El filántropo canadiense hace referencia a algunas ocasiones en la historia en las que las autoridades tomaron medidas drásticas contra los instrumentos financieros para promover sus propias agendas.

“Creo que nunca se puede subestimar la determinación de los gobiernos y los bancos centrales cuando intentan proteger su moneda. Ha oído hablar de los controles de divisas y capitales. Han sido parte de nuestra historia en muchos países, incluido Estados Unidos. Llegó en forma de ilegalizar la propiedad del oro en 1933, que duró 40 años. Esa fue una forma de control de capital para proteger el dólar estadounidense. Lo vio en la Gran Bretaña anterior a 1979, donde había controles de divisas. Lo viste en Sudáfrica. Lo viste en la Alemania de antes de la guerra. Lo viste tan recientemente como en 2015 en Grecia.

Los controles de moneda y capital, o un método por el cual usar esa filosofía contra Bitcoin es una posibilidad y hay que tenerlo en cuenta „.

Giustra va un paso más allá y destaca que los bancos centrales poseen oro

“[Los bancos centrales] no son propietarios de Bitcoin. El oro es una parte fundamental de sus reservas de divisas y siempre lo será. Si hacen algo, emitirán su propia moneda digital. No van a comprar Bitcoin, porque van a intentar con todo su poder socavar Bitcoin „.

Si bien Giustra podría tener una perspectiva sombría a largo plazo sobre Bitcoin, cree que la criptomoneda líder tiene el potencial de subir más en los próximos meses.

“En este momento, [Bitcoin] está en esa etapa de manía de ser comprado por esa razón, que eventualmente llegará a esa etapa, y puede que lo haga, pero creo que es un largo, largo camino por una gran cantidad de razones, pero eso no significa que no vaya a subir mucho más, lo que personalmente creo que sucederá. Creo que [Bitcoin] hará lo que predicen algunas de estas personas y obtendrá un precio mucho más alto „.

Los asesores financieros apuestan por Bitcoin como cobertura

Una nueva encuesta de Bitwise destaca una actitud más favorable hacia Bitcoin y las criptomonedas.

Los asesores financieros utilizan cada vez más las criptomonedas como Bitcoin Era como cobertura contra la inflación, lo que subraya el cambio dramático en el sentimiento institucional hacia los activos digitales.

La „Encuesta de referencia Bitwise / ETF Trends 2021“ revela que el 9,4% de los asesores financieros estaban asignando a las criptomonedas en 2020, un aumento del 49% con respecto al año anterior. De los asesores que actualmente no asignan criptografía, el 17% dijo que ganarán exposición „definitivamente“ o „probablemente“ en 2021.

Los asesores están comprando criptomonedas por muchas razones, la principal de ellas es su posible cobertura contra la inflación. Como señaló Bitwise, el 25% de los asesores mencionaron la cobertura de inflación como una de las características más atractivas de la clase de activos. Eso es un aumento del 9% del año anterior.

El informe decía:

„La encuesta de este año vio un fuerte repunte en los asesores que destacaron los ‚altos rendimientos potenciales‘ de las criptomonedas y su papel en la ‚cobertura de inflación‘ como características atractivas clave de la clase de activos“.

Un total de 994 asesores participaron en la encuesta, frente a los 415 del año anterior. Los asesores de inversiones registrados independientes representaron el 45% de los encuestados, seguidos por los agentes de bolsa independientes (25%), los planificadores financieros (19%) y los representantes de las empresas de telecomunicaciones (11%).

Bitcoin parece estar beneficiándose de la devaluación sistémica del dólar a medida que más inversores optan por salir del sistema financiero tradicional

Se espera que la caída libre del dólar continúe este año a medida que la administración entrante de Joe Biden prepara un plan de estímulo multimillonario, retomando efectivamente donde lo dejó Donald Trump.

Aunque las instituciones representan actualmente una pequeña fracción de todas las tenencias de Bitcoin, su impacto en el mercado está creciendo. El ejecutivo de Goldman Sachs, Jeff Currie, cree que la adopción institucional ha puesto a Bitcoin en el camino hacia la madurez, pero señaló que se necesita una mayor adopción para estabilizar la clase de activos.

Los activos de Bitwise bajo administración se dispararon a $ 500 millones en diciembre de 2020 , un aumento de cinco veces con respecto a solo dos meses antes. Las entradas récord de la firma reflejan la nueva demanda de los profesionales de la inversión, incluidos asesores, fondos de cobertura y corporaciones.

Twitter CEO: „You don’t need to buy 1 bitcoin, buy a fraction, add satoshis“

The post was very enjoyable and received several positive comments.

Responding to a follower who said he couldn’t buy 1 bitcoin because it was too expensive, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey replied that he could buy fractions, or, add satoshis.

A satoshi is the smallest unit of the bitcoin (0.00000001), each unit of the digital coin has eight decimal places, which are known as „satoshis“. This name was given in honor of the creator of the coin, Satoshi Nakamoto.

For example, with R$ 100 today you can buy 0.001 bitcoin, or, 102011 satoshis. The idea of the Twitter CEO that is widely advocated in the community is that people who cannot buy a bitcoin, should, as far as possible, „add satoshis“.

There is a false impression that bitcoin is not within everyone’s reach due to its current high value, but the truth is that anyone can buy fractions of the digital currency.

Imagine if every month a person can accumulate a few satoshis, as time goes by they can have a considerable fraction of the digital gold.

To convert bitcoins into satoshis you can use this tool.

The twitter CEO shared a video of a digital Crypto Method payments application, the Cash App, then his follower replied that he could not buy bitcoin because it was too expensive (restricted).

Jack then responded:

„You don’t need to buy 1 Bitcoin, just buy a fraction. Add Satoshis'“

The post was very enjoyable and received several positive comments.

Jack Dorsey is an old bitcoin enthusiast, this year his other company, Square, invested $50 million to buy 5,000 bitcoins.

Ethereum Daily Address Spiking visar att vinst cyklar från Bitcoin

Ethereum Daily Address Spiking visar att vinst cyklar från Bitcoin

Antalet dagliga Ethereum-adresser ökar för första gången sedan mitten av oktober, vilket sammanfaller med en total prisåterhämtning

Ansvarsfriskrivning: Det yttrande som här uttrycks är inte investeringsråd – det tillhandahålls endast i informationssyfte. Det återspeglar inte nödvändigtvis åsikt. Varje investering Bitcoin Lifestyle och all handel innebär risk, så du bör alltid utföra din egen undersökning innan du fattar beslut. Vi rekommenderar inte att du investerar pengar du inte har råd att förlora.

  • On-Chain Data visar Ethereum Rally kompletteras med förbättrade grundläggande
  • Användaraktivitet kan fortsätta öka

Antalet dagliga Ethereum-adresser ökar till osedda nivåer sedan 16. oktober. Enligt forskare kan detta innebära en pågående trend med Bitcoin-vinster som cyklar tillbaka till ETH.

Priset på ETH, den ursprungliga kryptovalutan i Ethereum-blockkedjan, ökade kraftigt under den senaste veckan. Det ökade från cirka 390 $ till 460 $ inom en period av fyra dagar, vilket orsakade förödelse på marknaden.

Kedjedata visar att ETH: s pågående rally stöds av starka fundamenta och ökande användaraktivitet. Som UToday tidigare rapporterade kommer den växande användaraktiviteten troligen från spänningen kring ETH 2.0.

On-Chain Data visar Ethereum Rally kompletteras med förbättrade grundläggande

Priset på kryptovalutor kan ibland stiga utan en tydlig förbättring av grundprinciperna. När det händer kan upptrenden vara kortvarig, speciellt om valar börjar tjäna pengar.

Forskare vid Santiment, ett on-chain marknadsanalysföretag, fann att antalet dagliga Ethereum-adresser växer i takt med priset.

Dessa uppgifter visar att efterfrågan på ETH och Ethereum blockchain verkligen ökar. Forskarna sa:

“Ethereums dagliga aktiva adresser som interagerar i sitt nätverk trender mot den mest hausseartade dagen sedan 16 oktober om siffror stannar vid den här banan de sista 5 timmarna före daglig stängning. Detta kan vara en indikation på att BTC-vinster gradvis flyttar över till ETH och andra altcoins eftersom FOMO-publiken antar att Bitcoin kommer att fortsätta sin dominans. Kom ihåg att marknaderna tenderar att avta och flöda baserat på de minst förväntade resultaten från publiken. ”

Under hela oktober presterade Ethereum märkbart bättre än Bitcoin. I synnerhet ETH / BTC-paret stagnerade från september till början av november.

Ethereum-priset har börjat återhämta sig mot Bitcoin för första gången sedan september. Förbättringen av användaraktivitet har ytterligare stärkt det optimistiska marknadssentimentet kring ETH.

Användaraktivitet kan fortsätta öka

Om ETH 2.0-mainnet startar som planerat i december, skulle det betyda ett väsentligt stort antal användare som tilldelade sin ETH till eth2-adressen.

För att Ethereum-användare ska kunna spela ETH som en del av ETH 2.0 måste de låsa in sina innehav i eth2-adressen. I gengäld kan de få cirka 15% av sitt innehav i incitament. Men under satsningsperioden kan de inte flytta eller spendera sin ETH om de inte drar sig tillbaka från satsningen.

För att ETH 2.0 ska kunna starta behöver eth2-adressen 524,288 ETH. Som sådan, om ETH 2.0-mainnet släpps, skulle det betyda att ett stort antal användare har engagerat sig med eth2-adressen för att börja mainnet.

På kort sikt kan hype kring ETH 2.0 leda till att den dagliga Ethereum-adressaktiviteten kontinuerligt ökar. Även om detta inte innebär en ökning av priset, är det en positiv indikator på övergripande hållbarhet när det sammanfaller med ett stigande pris.

Theta drops sharply after reaching historic high

THETA price follows a downward resistance line.

There is support at $ 0.58 and resistance at $ 0.77.

The course might have completed a five wave bullish formation

The Theta Network Token (THETA) price is down from its peak on September 30.

There could be a short-term rise, but it seems likely that the price has peaked for an extended period.

Decline in progress

Crypto Engine gradually declines along a descending resistance line from its maximum high at $ 0.798, reached on September 30.

Price hit a low at 0.553 on November 4th, validating the $ 0.57 area as support. It then started to rise. That said, price has yet to break through its descending resistance line. If it does, it could move up to the next resistance, which is located at $ 0.78.

The short-term chart is not yet showing clear weakness, but technical indicators have already reached overbought territory.

In addition, the price is approaching minor resistance at $ 0.695. The latter coincides with the aforementioned resistance line, and could therefore act as a near-term top.

The weekly chart is clearly bearish, knowing that the RSI contains a very pronounced bearish divergence, in addition to having declined from the overbought territory.

So while a crossing of the resistance line may take place, a resurgence of resistance at $ 0.78 seems unlikely

Theta’s price may have completed a five-wave bullish formation (in black below) measured from the March 13 low.

In this case, the price would now have started a long correction, which could take it down to $ 0.32 – $ 0.41. This would fit perfectly with the presence of the long-term bearish divergence.

A rise above its current high of $ 0.798 would negate this possibility.

Cryptocurrency trader @CryptoNTez shared a chart of THETA, showing the price is resting within a minor support area.

Although price has indeed rebounded to the support level at 3,950 satoshis, there is no clear sign of a bullish reversal yet. The MACD is below 0, the RSI is below 50 and the Stochastic Oscillator has generated a bearish cross. No bullish divergence is present in any of these three indicators.

So the current upside is likely to be a rally of relief rather than the start of a new upswing. Once completed, we would expect the price to drop to around 2,900-3,200 satoshis.

The future of DeFi unveiled during the ETHOnline conference

The ETHGlobal summit, renamed ETHOnline, took place virtually this year.

Big names in the industry have spoken about Ethereum and DeFi.

Many new DeFi projects and concepts were unveiled there

The Trust Project is an international consortium of news organizations based on transparency standards.

Decentralized finance ( DeFi ) was the focus of attention at the ETHGlobal conference, which this year was held completely virtual. A series of new concepts and innovative projects were unveiled at the event, demonstrating what the future of DeFi could hold.

This year’s ETHGlobal event has been renamed ETHOnline . It took place virtually due to concerns over COVID-19 and travel restrictions around the world.

This summit of one of the most popular cryptocurrency communities takes place throughout most of October and includes discussions with industry leaders, construction workshops, and a $ 125 hackathon. 000 dollars.

The last week was mainly devoted to the DeFi sector

DeFi Prime thus took a look at some of the most exciting projects that could take center stage in the relatively near future.

A user interface-based smart contract code generator called DeFi_Blocks creates robust smart contracts for those with limited coding capabilities. It uses a model from a basic Compound with Dai strategy and can be modified to adjust performance, fees, donors, rewards, and redemption.

Another solution called Tenderize.me is generating a liquid staking solution by combining stake-based protocols with automated market players. It aims to avoid periods of untying by providing a derivative token that can be used as collateral, rather than having to wait.

A project called Stoploss is underway to protect Uniswap’s liquidity providers from impermanent losses. xWin Investment offers a fund management and social trading platform, while PermanentLoss.finance allows the use of options for ETH / stablecoin liquidity providers as another method of hedging against impermanent losses.

The Digital Euro Stablecoin protocol offers the world’s first decentralized stablecoin to be pegged to the euro. Ethereum Yield Curve is a project that highlights the tradeoff between traditional finance and DeFi, while the Overlay protocol gives users the ability to trade almost any scalar data stream.

Split is a protocol for dividing tokens into fungible performance, governance and capital components. Finally, OSMOsis is a DeFi yield multiplier that redirects unused collateral from Aave to Balancer and mStable, enabling leveraged returns.

The list of new projects is too long to list them all. Other notable developments, however, include Entropy Chain, Protekt Protocol, Tokenlog, GoodGhosting, Juicer Protocol, Unipeer, Crescendo, Croco Finance, SIGH Finance, Oligo, NewFi, Flavor Finance and Mindful.

Knowing that DeFi continues to grow and shows no signs of slowing down, it is highly likely that many of these projects and concepts will be launched before the end of 2020.

10 percent of all bitcoins unaffected for 10 years

About 1.8 million Bitcoin have been dormant for over 10 years.

Much of the total Bitcoin ( BTC ) supply has not moved in more than 10 years, according to data from cryptocurrency analysis website Glassnode

In these 10 years, 1.8 million Bitcoin Rush (of the current total of 18.5 million ) were in dormant Bitcoin addresses. The value of these coins is over $ 23 billion at press time , according to Coin360.

The majority of these coins may belong to the mysterious Bitcoin creator Satoshi Nakamoto, who simply disappeared from the community in 2011.

Nakamoto may have over 1 million of these previously pristine coins that are said to be lost forever

Although so many have been dormant for a long time, some previously unissued bitcoins were moved for the first time in May. A wallet with coins that had been on it since February 2009 suddenly sent 50 BTC to two different addresses without warning or explanation. The blockchain community has three assumptions : These coins could belong to the family of the late cryptographer Hal Finney, the early developer Martti Malmi or possibly Satoshi Nakamoto himself. These speculations were denied by the respective parties. Except, of course, from Nakamoto, who is still unrecognized.
