Oddziały rozwojowe DeFi poza Ethereum

  • Bitcoin i stabilne monety zdominowały wzrost Q4 DeFi.
  • Ethereum TVL spadło w miarę zamykania gospodarstw rolnych.
  • Stawka ETH 2.0 wciąż rośnie – dopełniając 2M ETH.

Wzrost zdecentralizowanych finansów eksplodował w ostatnich dwóch kwartałach 2020 r., ale według ostatnich badań nie wszystko było napędzane przez Ethereum.

Zawijane wersje Bitcoin Pro i stabilnych monet były w tym roku ogromnym motorem łącznej wartości zablokowanej przez protokoły DeFi. Obecnie na Ethereum znajduje się 140.000 Bitcoinów tokenizowanych – choć nie wszystkie są używane w DeFi.

Ethereum TVL to 7,3 miliona ETH według DeFi Pulse. Liczba ta spadła o 23% z rekordowego poziomu 9,5 mln ETH zablokowanego pod koniec października.

Co to znaczy dla Ethereum?

Badacz Messari Ryan Watkins zaobserwował ostatnio ten skok w owiniętym Bitcoinie i spadek ETH jako procent TVL w czwartym kwartale.

Wykresy wskazują, że Bitcoin jest obecnie bliski osiągnięcia parytetu z Ethereum w zakresie DeFi TVL.

„Wciąż biorąc pod uwagę większość BTC na Ethereum przyszedł po wprowadzeniu CRV i UNI nie zwariował zakładając, że większość z nich jest produktywna.“

W chwili obecnej nie ma zbyt wielu dużych gospodarstw zorientowanych na plony Ethereum, co również mogłoby tłumaczyć ten spadek. Kiedy Yearn Finance uruchomił swoje sklepienie yETH, a Uniswap otworzył cztery baseny płynności oparte na ETH, Ethereum TVL osiągnęło rekordowy poziom.

Skarbiec yETH i pula płynności Uniswap zostały od tego czasu zamknięte i w tej chwili nie ma już nic innego, co mogłoby motywować posiadaczy ETH w świecie DeFi.

ETH 2.0 a Big DeFi Driver

Zanurzenie w ETH zablokowane w DeFi również koreluje z uruchomieniem Beacon Chain, więc można bezpiecznie założyć, że większość z tego została zablokowana.

Obecnie w umowie depozytowej znajduje się ponad 2,1 mln ETH, a liczba ta stale rośnie. Stanowi to 1,85 % całkowitej podaży i prawie 30 % tego, co jest obecnie zablokowane w systemie DeFi.

W miarę jak tyczenie staje się łatwiejsze dla przeciętnego użytkownika, może to stać się lepszą okazją do pasywnego zarabiania niż rolnictwo gazowo-chłonne.

Instytucje prawdopodobnie również zaangażują się w działania, wykupując ETH na następny rok lub dwa w celu uzyskania gwarantowanych zysków.

De burgemeester van Miami noemt Bitcoin ’stabiele investering‘ tijdens het onstabiele jaar.

Burgemeester Francis Suarez leert over Bitcoin van de Winklevoss-tweeling en Anthony Pompliano.

De burgemeester van Miami, Francis Suarez, is het nieuwste high-profile cijfer voor Bitcoin (BTC) en biedt meer bewijs dat de mainstream adoptie groeit.

In een tweet op donderdag noemde Suarez Bitcoin een „stabiele investering“ tijdens een „ongelooflijk onstabiel jaar“, en voegde eraan toe dat hij door middel van cijfers als Tyler Winklevoss en Anthony Pompliano het vlaggenschip van de digitale activa leert kennen.

Geweldig inzicht in hoe @Bitcoin een stabiele investering is geweest tijdens een ongelofelijk onstabiel jaar…op dit moment lezend Bitcoin Billionaires @tyler. @APompliano nog meer goed te lezen? https://t.co/nenQ5xmfi7

– Burgemeester Francis Suarez (@FrancisSuarez) 24 december 2020
Winklevoss en Pompliano reageerden beiden op de tweet van Suarez. Tyler zei dat hij en zijn broer Cameron de burgemeester van Miami een „gesigneerd exemplaar van Bitcoin Billionaires“ zullen brengen, een boek geschreven over de tweeling, terwijl Pompliano Miami aanprees als een toekomstige Bitcoin stad.

Miami is goed op weg om de Bitcoin-stad te worden.

– Pomp (@APompliano) 24 december 2020
Eerder op de dag gaf Suarez aan dat zijn regering het idee onderzoekt dat Miami de eerste crypto-centrische regering van het land wordt. „Absoluut het verkennen van dat,“ zei hij in reactie op een tweet. Er werden geen verdere details verstrekt.

Absoluut het onderzoeken van dat @APompliano @GrapefruitTrade https://t.co/mbpbSMkfEI.

Suarez werd in november 2017 tot burgemeester van Miami gekozen nadat hij zich als niet-partijgebonden kandidaat had kandidaat gesteld. Voordat hij de politiek inging, werkte hij als advocaat en richtte hij ook een titelbedrijf voor onroerend goed op.

Miami is door een aantal nieuwspunten beschreven als een van de heetste Amerikaanse steden voor cryptocurrencies als gevolg van lakse staatstoezicht en een toestroom van buitenlands kapitaal. De Noord-Amerikaanse Bitcoin-conferentie, met namen als Charles Hoskinson, Roger Ver en Riccardo Sagni, werd in het begin van het jaar in Miami gehouden.

De explosieve rally van Bitcoin dit jaar, mede gevoed door bedrijfs- en institutionele adoptie, zorgt voor nieuwe gesprekken over digitale middelen. De adoptie van Bitcoin wordt in toenemende mate gezien als een concurrentievoordeel in een economie die wordt gekenmerkt door financiële instabiliteit, inflatie van de activaprijzen en een record-interventie van de centrale bank.

A Northern Trust, uma empresa de serviços financeiros públicos com capitalização de mercado de US $ 19,4 bilhões, lançará uma plataforma conjunta, conhecida como Zodia Custody, sua primeira investida na criptomoeda.

Tem sido um grande ano para as instituições se envolvendo no espaço do blockchain, com empresas como MicroStrategy, Square e PayPal, todas investindo em criptomoeda ou oferecendo produtos baseados em criptografia em suas plataformas.

Agora podemos adicionar outro grande nome a essa lista, pois o Northern Trust lança uma plataforma de custódia de criptomoeda chamada Zodia . A parceria é uma colaboração com a SC Ventures, a unidade de venture da Standard Chartered.

Em seu anúncio oficial, a solução é descrita como:

“A Zodia combina os princípios tradicionais de custódia e experiência de um banco com a agilidade de uma empresa fintech para fornecer uma infraestrutura que atenda aos altos padrões e expectativas dos investidores institucionais por meio de uma plataforma que se adapta às necessidades em constante mudança dos clientes e do mercado.”

A Zodia oferecerá a custódia de uma variedade de ativos digitais, incluindo Bitcoin , Ethereum , XRP , Litecoin e Bitcoin Cash . Maxime De Guillebon, CEO da Zodia, explicou:

“A Zodia foi criada para atender à necessidade de um custodiante de criptomoedas que realmente entenda de custódia. Combinamos o gerenciamento de risco, conformidade, governança e abordagem de segurança de uma instituição financeira regulamentada com a inovação de ponta em criptografia de ativos e tecnologias de gerenciamento de chaves. Ao fazer isso, possibilitamos a eficiência operacional e a velocidade das transações sem comprometer a segurança ou a confiabilidade. ”

Mais legitimização no espaço criptográfico

O empreendimento do Northern Trust adiciona outra camada de legitimação ao espaço. Muitos respeitam a instituição de serviços financeiros. O estabelecimento de seu novo braço de custódia sugere que as organizações financeiras tradicionais estão finalmente vendo o potencial perturbador das criptomoedas.

À medida que mais empresas de bilhões de dólares entram na classe de ativos emergentes, outras instituições provavelmente se sentirão mais confortáveis ​​com a ideia de investir em criptomoedas como o Bitcoin .

Bitcoin shoots through $19,000, all time high in sight

For a moment it seemed as if the altcoins would steal all the attention but nothing could be further from the truth. Bitcoin breaks through USD 19 000 for the first time. With this, bitcoin reaches its highest value this year.

Record in sight

The record of almost USD 20 000 is getting closer and closer. Since September, bitcoin has been in an upward trend, as you can see on the chart below. The price is moving exponentially upwards, the trend line is becoming more and more slanted. This is also called parabolic. Can bitcoin maintain this parabolic trend? Then a record high of almost $20,000 may be possible by the end of this month.

On the way to $20,000?

The exchange rate has now broken out of this ascending triangle, which is very positive. The price target in the event of an outbreak is the same as the opening on the left, which means that bitcoin can prepare for an increase to $20,000 and higher. That is the absolute record, at Bistamp the exchange rate has never risen above USD 19,670 (EUR 16,540).

What do we expect from bitcoin?

Bitcoin is very close to a record, but anything can happen. In order to prepare for everything, we therefore describe two scenarios. A bullish scenario for the racial optimists, and a bearish scenario for those who prefer to see the price fall.

Bullish
If bitcoin remains in the parabolic trend, the all-time high of $19,670 (€16,540) comes into the picture. This is the green line on the graph.

Bearish
But when bitcoin falls, the exchange rate can again find support at USD 18,000 (EUR 15,134), the orange line on the chart. Below that, $16,600 (€13,957) is another important support point.

Will there be a large correction of more than 20%? Then we need to keep an eye on USD 14 000 (EUR 11 771). This corresponds to the highest exchange rate of 2019, but also to the highest monthly closing in December 2017.

Visa and Circle are working together

The joint stock company Visa recently announced a collaboration with Circle Unlimited AG. Together, they want to issue a credit card that companies can use to make USDC payments. This could open the door for stable coins quite a bit.

On December 2, Forbes reportedthat Crypto Engine will help Visa integrate USDC software into their platforms.

Cuy Sheffield, Visa head of crypto, confirmed the news via Twitter:

Circle will issue the first USDC affiliated Visa corporate card to enable its corporate customers to spend USDC from their corporate coffers at 60 million merchants.

The support of Circle is of enormous importance, since credit cards in the USA have to be officially issued by a bank. The Fast Track project is scheduled to run until 2021.

Circle is not the first company to participate in this program. Visa is currently cooperating with 25 other crypto wallet providers. Each of these is able to integrate USDC stable coin into their platforms.

Sheffield went on to state:

This will be the first company card that companies can use to issue a USDC balance. We believe this will greatly increase the value USDC can bring to Circle’s business customers.

Visa’s collaboration with Circle, however, also has an impact on the company’s other partnerships. Fast Track members are now able to independently manage their USDC integrations.

Circle deals with various payment solutions for companies. According to statisticsThe demand for stable coins for digital dollars has risen sharply in 2020, which is likely to be the main reason for working with Visa.

Bitcoin’s recent all-time high has swallowed up the entire crypto community.

The world’s largest cryptocurrency community has managed to conquer new heights and reach its all time high, something that was not expected in the first quarter of 2020, when the Coronavirus pandemic was spreading around the world.

The virus didn’t go anywhere, but Bitcoin stayed on its feet and gained value.

Currently, the price of Bitcoin is over $19,000. Experts think it can reach as much as $100,000.

But there are some assumptions that its new all time high might be far away, because trading volumes will definitely drop. In this article we will take a look at this.

Trading volumes will go down

Sooner or later it is inevitable that Bitcoin’s trading volume will decrease significantly. Why? Because BTC is now more useful as an investment than as a means of trading.

People will stop using it to buy things (or using it in online casinos) because it is anticipating a further price increase.

Online casinos have become one of the most popular areas where Bitcoin is widely used. According to Casinocrunch, the number of casinos that accept Bitcoin and BTC transactions has increased significantly in recent years.

Due to the reduction in purchases, volumes are expected to fall, dragging down the price. So we may see a slowdown in the BTC price increase.
What other Bitcoin forecasts have been made?

The most famous cryptocurrency is ready to reach new all time high, but it is likely that BTC is close to the end of the growth phase.

On November 18, BTC recorded a price of $18,488 and has continued to rise.

What is the reason for such a rapid increase in the price of cryptocurrency? Frustrated by the usual assets and fiat money, investors are looking for an alternative. Part of the finance is going to cryptocurrency, and the main beneficiary is bitcoin.

It may be that BTC at this stage of the climb updates the peak to $19,800. However, the technical picture shows that the growth phase is close to completion.

At the moment it is difficult to say whether bitcoin, along with other popular cryptocurrencies, will become part of everyday life – the spread of digital money in daily financial flows is still a long way off, although it is worth admitting that work in this direction is ongoing, and is very active.

However, so far BTC has been more perceived by major investors as a speculative asset. At least this is how the price behaves.
Conclusion

What can we expect? Considering the fact that Bitcoin is very volatile and its price fluctuates continuously, it is very difficult to make accurate predictions about the largest cryptocurrency in the world.

Maybe nobody would have expected Bitcoin to reach its historical value after the coronavirus pandemic, but it did. Bitcoin still has a long way to go to reach its historical maximum, as trading volumes will decrease significantly.
