La populaire société de cartes de visite Topps vient de lancer aujourd’hui la série „2021 Garbage Pail Kids Food Fight“, et les paquets de cartes de visite sont vendus dans les magasins Target et Walmart. Non seulement la série Garbage Pail Kids (GPK) fournira aux gens des cartes à collectionner en carton, mais Topps a également inséré des cartes à code rare basées Bitcoin Revolution sur une chaîne de blocs, qui peuvent être échangées contre des jetons non fongibles GPK exclusifs (NFT) sur la chaîne de blocs Wax.

Depuis les années 80, les Garbage Pail Kids (GPK) sont une série de cartes de visite très appréciée, créée par la société Topps. La société Topps a été fondée en 1938 et a créé des cartes à collectionner pour une myriade de sports et de loisirs pendant des décennies. Topps possède également des bonbons Bazooka bubblegum, Ring Pop, Push Pop et Baby Bottle Pop.

Les Garbage Pail Kids ont été lancés en 1985 et ont été distribués par la société de cartes de visite Topps. Les illustrations de GPK ont été conçues à l’origine par les artistes John Pound, Tom Bunk, Joe Simko et Layron DeJarnette. En 2020, Topps a lancé les premières itérations de GPK numériques sur la chaîne de cartes à puce Wax, comme indiqué ci-dessus.

Plus récemment, les cartes GPK ont retrouvé leur popularité, après avoir fait la une des journaux dans les années 80. Les paquets de la première série d’originaux GPK de 1985, en particulier la série de cartes brillantes, peuvent rapporter des milliers de dollars. Entre-temps, depuis la naissance de Bitcoin, la technologie des chaînes de magasins a transformé non seulement la finance, mais aussi d’autres industries comme l’art et les objets de collection. L’année dernière, Topps s’est associé à l’équipe de wax.io (Wax blockchain) et a lancé les premières versions des objets de collection numériques GPK.

„La technologie de la chaîne de cire permet aux collectionneurs d’entrer sur un marché où ils peuvent acheter des cartes à collectionner numériques Garbage Pail Kids“, note le site web de Topps appelé topps.wdny.io. „[Les collectionneurs peuvent] proposer et exécuter des transactions, présenter leur inventaire sur les médias sociaux et rechercher les listes de souhaits d’autres commerçants“.

Topps lance la série 2021 Garbage Pail Kids Food Fight avec des chances de gagner des Blockchain GPK NFTs

La chaîne de blocs Wax permet aux gens de créer, d’acheter, de vendre et d’échanger des TNF virtuels et des objets physiques également. Depuis 2017, le réseau Wax affirme avoir facilité plus de 100 millions d’échanges d’objets numériques. Cette semaine, Topps lance la série „2021 Topps Garbage Pail Kids Food Fight“, qui sera vendue comme tous les autres jeux annuels de GPK chez Targets and Walmarts.

Les articles de la série Topps Garbage Pail Kids peuvent être trouvés chez Target et Walmart

Les boîtes et les paquets de cartes physiques auront une chance de gagner une carte à code rare qui pourra être utilisée pour racheter les objets de collection de la chaîne de magasins GPK Wax. L’annonce précise qu’il existe 11 pièces originales et un certain nombre de variantes numériques exclusives.

„Le 24 février 2021, Topps lance des paquets physiques dans Walmart et Target. Le 25 février 2021, la version numérique sera disponible sur la chaîne de magasins Wax“, a déclaré Topps lors de l’annonce. „Les collectionneurs de cartes physiques peuvent également recevoir une carte de code de rachat exclusive dans les packs physiques qui récompensera les objets de collection numériques exclusifs de la chaîne de magasins Wax. D’autres packs numériques pour les noms de personnages „b“ exclusifs peuvent être achetés directement sur Wax pendant la Wintercon 2021 de Topps Digital qui débutera le 25 février“. Les fans de GPK peuvent consulter les cartes sur le site web wax.io.

Marc Seal, directeur de Topps et hôte de Topps Digicast, a ajouté :

Lorsque j’ai rejoint Topps il y a deux ans, notre vice-président, Tobin Lent, et moi-même avions discuté en profondeur de la chaîne de blocage et de ce qu’elle pouvait signifier pour les objets de collection numériques. Comme beaucoup d’autres chez Topps, nous voyons tous les deux l’incroyable potentiel de la chaîne de blocage.

Les jetons non fongibles et les objets de collection basés sur des chaînes de blocs ont fait fureur depuis 2020 et des millions de dollars de transactions ont été exécutés sur les marchés NFT. Tout récemment, des particuliers ont échangé des cartes de basket-ball basées sur le NFT, appelées „NBA Top Shots“. Lundi, 27 000 personnes ont acheté des cartes NBA Top Shots et le volume des ventes a dépassé les 32 millions de dollars.

Launch of Facebook’s Diem moves closer through collaboration

Launch of Facebook’s Diem gets closer through cooperation

Through a cooperation between the financial service providers Fireblocks and First Digital Asset Group, financial institutions should be able to integrate the Diem Stablecoin more easily as a means of payment in the future. However, the platform is still awaiting regulatory approval.

The prestigious Diem project seems to have come one step closer to a release. Through the cooperation of crypto security service provider Fireblocks and Diem payment provider First Digital Asset Group, financial institutions should be able to process transactions more Bitcoin Trader easily via the Diem network in the future. This was announced by both companies in a press release. The collaboration is primarily intended to overcome the hurdles caused by the complexity of connecting and setting up with the Diem blockchain, so that companies can work more easily with the stablecoin. Fireblocks is laying the security foundation for this through its in-house wallet.

The service is to be available to all qualified virtual asset service providers (VASPs). As defined by the Financial Action Task Force (FATF), an international institution dedicated to the fight against money laundering and terrorist financing, a VASP is a:

Entity engaged in the exchange, transfer or custody of virtual assets.
FATF, 2019

The partnership between Fireblocks and First is intended to „accelerate the adoption of Diem payments“ and ensure that any capable financial institution can connect to the network, according to Michael Shaulov, CEO of Fireblocks. First CEO Ran Goldi added:

As trustees, wallets, exchanges, PSPs (payment service providers, ed.) and other VASPs prepare for the Diem network, we are excited to work with Fireblocks to deliver everything a VASP needs, from risk to on/off-chain communications to liquidation.
Ran Goldi, CEO First Digital Asset Group

Diem still under pressure

Even after its rebranding in December 2020, Diem continues to face massive criticism. For example, German Finance Minister Olaf Scholz (SPD) was unimpressed by the rebranding of the Facebook coin. On the fringes of the G7 meeting in December last year, he described the US corporation’s crypto project as a „wolf in sheep’s clothing“. According to the SPD candidate for chancellor, renaming the currency would not solve its fundamental problems. He accused the Diem organisation and the consortium around Facebook behind it of not having tackled the regulatory risks decisively enough. The German government would not accept a market entry as long as these deficits were not remedied.

Scholz thus reinforced his concerns, which the G7 already expressed in a similar form in October last year. The representatives of the most powerful industrial nations of the West fear above all a scenario in which the Facebook currency could compete with the established fiat currencies due to its enormous user numbers (1.8 billion in the third quarter of 2020). Everything possible must be done to ensure that the monopoly on money remains in the hands of the states, said the Finance Minister.

After a small question by the parliamentary group of the FDP in January, there were hardly any new findings by the federal government on the Diem case. When asked for an assessment of the planned introduction of Diem in Switzerland, the Finance Ministry referred to the so-called „Diem College“. This is an organisation that was founded by the Swiss Financial Market Supervisory Authority FINMA and to which the German BaFin also belongs. Its main task is the exchange of information. In this respect, for example, the prudential requirements had been addressed in order to approve Diem as a payment system. However, the requirements were not formulated further.

EL DÓLAR ESTADOUNIDENSE CONFIRMA LA CONTINUACIÓN DE LA TENDENCIA BAJISTA MIENTRAS EL BITCOIN ALCANZA UN MÁXIMO HISTÓRICO

Tanto el dólar estadounidense como el Bitcoin disfrutaron de un periodo de fortaleza a principios de 2021. Pero mientras la criptomoneda continuó su tendencia alcista, liderada por una nueva ola de adopción institucional, el dólar sufrió un fuerte retroceso a raíz de unos fundamentos poco favorables.

El índice del dólar estadounidense, que sigue la fortaleza del billete verde frente a las monedas extranjeras más fuertes del mundo, rompió el martes por debajo de un soporte crucial con pendiente ascendente que constituía un canal ascendente. Técnicamente, el movimiento señaló una ruptura negativa en la dirección de la tendencia bajista anterior del dólar. Esto hizo que pareciera una bandera bajista.

En plazos más amplios, el dólar estadounidense se ha desplomado más de un 12% tras registrar su máximo de tres años en marzo, justo cuando los mercados se dieron cuenta de la gravedad de la pandemia de coronavirus.

Una avalancha de medidas de flexibilización emprendidas por la Reserva Federal, que incluían el compromiso de mantener los tipos de interés cerca de cero y la compra de bonos de forma indefinida, redujeron el poder adquisitivo del billete verde. Mientras tanto, las perspectivas de obtener escasos rendimientos de los bonos a corto plazo hicieron que los inversores buscaran alternativas de inversión en mercados de riesgo. Esto permitió que activos como el Bitcoin Machine y el oro alcanzaran máximos históricos.

MALOS DATOS ECONÓMICOS

Las señales de continuación bajista en los gráficos del dólar estadounidense reciben nuevos vientos de cola de unos datos económicos más débiles de lo esperado.

El Sydney Morning Herald informó de que las posiciones cortas en el billete verde están en sus niveles más altos en una década. Ello indica un aumento de las perspectivas bajistas de los operadores sobre la divisa, encabezadas por una explosión de la deuda estadounidense en 2020, seguida de la perspectiva del paquete de estímulo de 1,9 billones de dólares del presidente estadounidense Joe Biden.

En general, la pandemia de coronavirus ha llevado al gobierno estadounidense a inyectar en los mercados ayudas por valor de más de 3 billones de dólares. Ahora, una oferta adicional de 1,9 billones de dólares frente a una demanda insuficiente (ya que los inversores buscan beneficios en mercados más arriesgados) está presionando al dólar a la baja.

„A medida que aumentan las vacunas contra el COVID-19 y el mundo comienza a contener la pandemia, los mercados globales están cambiando hacia un entorno de „riesgo“, lo que históricamente ha debilitado al billete verde a medida que el capital fluye hacia entornos de mayor riesgo y mayor rentabilidad y hacia el mercado de acciones estadounidense“, informó SMH.

¿CONTINUARÁ EL AUGE DEL BITCOIN?

La depreciación del dólar estadounidense en 2020 hizo que muchos inversores institucionales y empresas se deshicieran del billete verde en favor del Bitcoin. La narrativa antifiat de la criptodivisa insignia, que tiene su origen en su limitado tope de suministro de 21 millones de tokens, le ayudó a subir más de un 1.100 por ciento desde su nadir de mediados de marzo de 3.858 dólares.

Al entrar en 2021, empresas como Tesla y MicroStartegy han cambiado una parte increíble de sus reservas de efectivo por Bitcoin. Mientras tanto, otras empresas están ocupadas construyendo infraestructuras para atender las futuras demandas de criptomonedas en el sector financiero convencional.

Entre ellas se encuentra PayPal, que ahora ofrece servicios de comercio y almacenamiento de bitcoins en EE.UU., y BNY Mellon, que anunció sus planes de ofrecer servicios de custodia para los inversores en criptodivisas. El bitcoin alcanzó el viernes un máximo histórico por encima de los 49.000 dólares.

Senate committee votes unanimously for Yellen’s nomination

The Senate Finance Committee supports the appointment of Janet Yellen as Treasury Secretary.

Janet Yellen, the former head of the US Federal Reserve, has come a big step closer to becoming the country’s first female Treasury Secretary

The parliamentary finance committee of the US Senate unanimously approved the nomination of Yellen on Friday. Subsequently, their appointment now has to be confirmed by the entire parliament. Chuck Grassley, a senator from the rival Republican Party, sees the approval of the finance committee as a strong „non-partisan“ signal of cooperation to the government.

His Republican colleagues point out that they support Yellen, even though they disagree with some of their views on substance. Nevertheless, she would be highly qualified for the office, which is why the MPs approve her nomination.

The Finance Committee hopes that the Senate will also vote unanimously in favor of Yellen’s appointment, but this has not yet happened

If Janet Yellen is confirmed as Treasury Secretary, she would play an important role in Joe Biden’s cabinet, setting the course for the economy and finance of the most powerful country in the world. Her appointment would also have a symbolic value, as she would be the first woman in this position.

In her confirmation hearing before the Senate Yellen on Tuesday had „decisive action“ in the Corona crisis demanded :

“Economists don’t always agree, but I think there’s a consensus on this. If we do not intervene further, we risk a longer and worse crisis than we already have, which could have long-term effects on the economy. “

From 2014 to 2018, Yellen was the head of the central bank of the United States, and she was the first woman to hold this position. Under her leadership, the “Federal Reserve” was on the way to normalizing monetary policy for the first time , before its successor Jerome Powell later canceled this strategy.

The crypto industry is closely monitoring the nomination of Yellen, because the former Fed boss has so far sent mixed signals about cryptocurrencies. On the one hand, she has praised Bitcoin ( BTC ) as a digital asset that can drive innovation and optimization of the global financial system, while on the other hand , she fears that cryptocurrencies encourage money laundering and other illegal activities.

The last few days the government Trump had previously added to the crypto industry is still in a panic, because the outgoing Finance Minister Steven Mnuchin has fast nor a law put in place that would intensify the use of crypto-wallets.

However, when he took office, new President Joe Biden put a halt to all government-submitted bills, blocking many of the Trump administration’s late-stage efforts for now. The relevant law for crypto wallets is also affected, which gives the industry a sigh of relief.

Prawie 90% inwestorów postrzega akcje Bitcoin i amerykańskich technologii jako bańki: badanie Deutsche Bank

Prawie 90% respondentów comiesięcznych ankiet przeprowadzanych przez Deutsche Bank wśród specjalistów rynkowych stwierdziło, że rynki finansowe doświadczają wielu baniek cenowych.

Te bańki obejmują akcje Bitcoin i amerykańskie akcje technologiczne, które znajdują się na szczycie tej listy

Od marcowej wyprzedaży cena Bitcoin wzrosła ponad 10-krotnie, aw styczniu osiągnęła nowy rekord wszechczasów na poziomie 42 000 USD, pośród drukowania pieniędzy przez banki centralne na całym świecie, a stopy procentowe spadły do ​​zera i poniżej zera. poziom.

Respondenci dostrzegają również, że wartość Bitcoina spadła o połowę w ciągu najbliższych 12 miesięcy. Mają te same uczucia co do Tesli Elona Muska , która wzrosła 11,2-krotnie od marcowej wyprzedaży i osiągnęła szczyt 880 USD na początku tego miesiąca.

Jak wynika z badania, 71% z 627 ankietowanych inwestorów nie sądziło, że Rezerwa Federalna Stanów Zjednoczonych ograniczy stymulację przed końcem roku

W podobnym badaniu przeprowadzonym przez Bank of America , długie pozycje bitcoinów zastąpiły długie pozycje w amerykańskich akcjach technologicznych jako najbardziej oblegana transakcja w styczniu, z krótkim dolarem na trzecim miejscu. 18% tych inwestorów również postrzega bańkę na Wall Street jako jedno z zagrożeń dla gospodarki.

Rekordowe 92% inwestorów BofA spodziewa się również wyższej inflacji i rekordowo 83% bardziej stromej krzywej dochodowości, jednocześnie zachowując optymizm w stosunku do globalnego wzrostu.

Bitcoin comes under scrutiny from regulators after skyrocketing growth

The British financial watchdog and the president of the ECB are calling for stricter rules.

Regulators are paying more attention to bitcoin and its use in the international financial system after the value of the digital currency surged in a volatile rally that increased fears of a lack of robust oversight by financial supervisors.

Both the UK’s Financial Conduct Authority and the president of the European Central Bank stressed this week the need for stricter regulatory oversight of cryptocurrencies, noting the extreme volatility and criminal activity often associated with the cryptocurrency market.

ECB President Christine Lagarde told the conference on Wednesday that bitcoin was „a very speculative asset that allowed dirty dealings and totally unacceptable money laundering activities“.

Ms Lagarde’s comments follow a grimly worded warning from the UK regulator, which this week reiterated to consumers that anyone involved in bitcoin schemes „should be prepared to lose all their money“.

The price of bitcoin soared more than 300% last year and rose another 40% in early January, reaching a high of more than $40,000. Since then it has fallen 17% without a clear trigger.

Bitcoin’s rise chart december 2020

This degree of volatility discourages many institutional investors, but it is Bitcoin Fortune hard for some hedge funds and other private investors to ignore.

However, Ms Lagarde warned that „criminal investigations have demonstrated very clearly that bitcoin has been used to launder money“ and called for cryptocurrency regulation to be agreed at a global level, perhaps in the G7 or G20 wealth groups.

„If there is a loophole, that loophole will always be exploited by criminals – this shows that global coordination and multilateral action is needed,“ she expressed, adding that the FATF is increasingly focusing on cryptocurrencies.

German police this week shut down an online marketplace that was selling huge amounts of illegal drugs in exchange for cryptocurrency. Europol said the site, called DarkMarket, operated on a hidden part of the internet known as the darknet and was used by 2,400 suppliers to sell more than 140 million euros worth of drugs using cryptocurrencies, including bitcoins and monero. Europol said the site was the world’s largest illegal darknet marketplace, adding that German police arrested a 34-year-old Australian, who is the alleged operator of the site, and seized more than 20 computer servers in the territories of Moldova and Ukraine.

In the UK, the FCA said it was concerned about unauthorised investment schemes offering super profits in the cryptocurrency market and the high level of price volatility in this market, while consumers cannot count on UK regulators to protect them from losses associated with cryptocurrency investments.

A source close to the FCA said the authority was primarily concerned about the way it advertises. „It has nothing to do with the actual movement of bitcoin prices. But we understand that price hikes in crypto-assets such as bitcoin could increase consumer interest in these assets and related investments,“ the source expressed concern.

Gab Promove Bitcoin como a plataforma está inundada após a proibição do trunfo

Gab está passando por um ataque natural de DDoS em meio a um êxodo com a plataforma afirmando que cerca de 500.000 usuários se juntaram em um dia, quando o site recebe 18 milhões de visitas.

„O tráfego continua crescendo, e ainda mais servidores estão a caminho hoje“, disse o CEO da Gab Andrew Torba no sábado.

A plataforma opera seus próprios servidores e conseguiu obter um aplicativo móvel não escalonável através do Mastodon.

Como a Parler está banida do Google, Amazon, Apple, seus advogados, provedores de serviços de e-mail e texto, os conservadores – que estão tão confusos que baixam um aplicativo pornô chamado Parlor – podem ter pouca escolha a não ser tentar Gab.

Ao contrário da Parler, a Gab não tem serviços mainstream como o Amazon cloud porque eles foram banidos de tudo em 2018, inclusive dos processadores de pagamento.

Eles adotaram o bitcoin, e assim, neste momento crucial para a plataforma, quando ela pode muito bem se tornar uma verdadeira alternativa ao twitter, eles estão levando algum do seu tempo para informar seus usuários sobre o que é bitcoin com Gab dizendo „Bitcoin é dinheiro da liberdade de expressão“.

„Cada vez mais empresas e indivíduos estão sendo cortados do processamento tradicional de pagamentos, bancos e mais online.

Isto inclui Gab.com e nosso fundador Andrew Torba, que foram ambos colocados na lista negra pela VISA, bem como processadores de pagamento como Paypal. Bitcoin resolve este problema“, dizem eles.

Os conservadores estão atualmente indignados com o que dizem ser uma tentativa de silenciá-los com alguns republicanos dizendo que planejam tornar a censura tecnológica parte de sua plataforma de campanha.

A ação coordenada contra Parler, uma aplicação pouco conhecida que, no entanto, tem atraído a obsessão de alguns meios de comunicação de esquerda desde o verão, tem muito cuidado com as novas capacidades do que só pode ser chamado de uma máquina de censura.

No entanto, a internet foi projetada em suas bases para rotear a censura, e isso é exatamente o que vai acontecer, mas potencialmente de uma forma superficial, onde você deixou o twitter e o twitter direito ocupados com assuntos que ninguém se importa, no processo efetivamente deplora a verdadeira população, a grande maioria do público que é independente.

O domínio das plataformas americanas nestes assuntos é, de certa forma, trazer suas guerras culturais para a internet global no que poderia muito bem se desenvolver em guerras tecnológicas à medida que as atuais plataformas dominantes começam a ser percebidas como autoritárias e de esquerda.

No que diz respeito ao bitcoin, alguns dos 70 milhões de eleitores do Trump que se mudam para o Gab podem começar a ouvir sobre o bitcoin e como este é dinheiro da liberdade de expressão, bem como como como eles podem usá-lo para apoiar estas plataformas que agora lhes proporcionam uma avenida para se envolverem no debate público.

Secret Tokens, a protocol to transform your ERC-20 into anonymous cryptos

Secret Network, an anonymity-based blockchain, has announced the launch of its “Secret Ethereum Bridge”. It transforms ETH and ERC-20 into anonymous tokens.

Anonymous ERC-20s thanks to Secret Network

As a Secret Network blog post explains , the „secret“ versions of these ERC-20 tokens or ETHs allow anonymous transactions . ERC-20s keep their ability to be programmable, but “ private by default, like Monero and other similar altcoins . “

The “bridge” between Secret Network and Ethereum works like this: secretETH (or secretERC-20) are produced when the original tokens are locked on the network . If the user wishes to convert his tokens to their original version, the ETH / ERC-20 secrets are destroyed, and the original tokens removed from the deposit contract.

This is a first step for Secret Network, which wants to extend these features to other blockchains. The service will also soon launch “bridge mining”. This is to reward users who lock their ETH and ERC-20. The latter will receive in exchange the SCRT, the native cryptocurrency of Secret Network. In total, 2 million SCRTs will be allocated to the community.

Make DeFi anonymous

The maneuver has one main goal: to launch anonymous decentralized finance services ( DeFi ) thanks to the Secret Network. The press release explains:

“This is a first step before creating a private DeFi ecosystem by default and compatible with several channels. “

This ambition can be seen in the choice of tokens that are compatible with Secret Network. For the moment, only about fifteen tokens can be transformed, and they are linked to decentralized finance projects . Here is the list: ETH, YFI, UNI, BAND, COMP, LINK, AAVE, KNC, SNX, OCEAN, MKR, DAI, USDT, TUSD and WBTC.

Users can now test the bridge between Ethereum and Secret Network, and distribution of rewards is expected to begin in January.

Plus de 13% des produits du crime de Bitcoin sont blanchis par le biais de „portefeuilles privés“ : Elliptique

Le nombre de criminels qui utilisent des portefeuilles dits de confidentialité pour faciliter le cryptage du blanchiment d’argent est en augmentation, selon Elliptic, une société d’analyse de chaînes de magasins basée au Royaume-Uni.

La société estime que plus de 13% des produits du crime impliquant des bitcoins (BTC, +1,03%) sont maintenant transférés par le biais de ces portefeuilles, contre seulement 2% en 2019, selon un rapport publié mercredi.

Selon Elliptic, les portefeuilles de protection de la vie privée, tels que le Wasabi Wallet, disposent d’outils qui aident à dissimuler l’identité des utilisateurs. Un exemple est la comparaison automatique entre pairs et l’envoi de transactions CoinJoin, dans lesquelles les bitcoins sont mélangés au sein d’une même transaction.

Selon le rapport, les portefeuilles s’avèrent populaires comme moyen d’éviter les risques de services centralisés de mélange de pièces, tels que le vol de fonds par les fournisseurs de services et les autorités exploitant des sites „honeypot“.

En 2020, Elliptic estime que 160 millions de dollars de bitcoin provenant du darknet, de vols et d’escroqueries ont été blanchis grâce aux portefeuilles de protection de la vie privée.

Le piratage de comptes Twitter importants en été a favorisé une escroquerie crypto qui a permis de récolter 120 000 dollars dans différentes cryptocurrences, dont une grande partie a été blanchie par le biais du Wasabi Wallet, indique le rapport. La même chose se serait produite après le piratage de l’échange de KuCoin en septembre, où 280 millions de dollars de crypto ont été volés.

L’elliptique a reconnu qu’il existe des utilisations légitimes des portefeuilles privés, mais a déclaré que les criminels ont été rapides à se brancher sur les nouveaux services.

Cette tendance pose un „défi croissant pour les régulateurs, les forces de l’ordre et les professionnels de la conformité qui cherchent à combattre le crime financier dans les crypto-actifs“, a déclaré la firme.

Nouriel Roubini se sente um pouco melhor sobre a BTC, parece que

Muitas pessoas têm trocado suas posições sobre o bitcoin ultimamente. A moeda se saiu tão bem este ano e chegou tão longe que muitos opositores se transformaram de repente em grandes fãs, e parece que outra foi transformada. A pessoa que de repente está empurrando o Bitcoin Compass é um economista chamado Nouriel Roubini, que no passado, tem sido bastante indelicado com o ativo.

Roubini: Talvez o BTC não seja tão ruim

O Bitcoin mais do que triplicou desde março. Na época, o ativo havia caído abaixo da marca de $4.000, embora agora a moeda esteja sendo negociada por bem mais de $16.000. Isto fez com que muitas pessoas de repente acreditassem na moeda criptográfica número um do mundo por limite de mercado. O fato de que ela pode potencialmente aumentar tanto durante uma pandemia generalizada colocou o ativo no mapa.

Roubini é professor de economia na Stern School of Business da Universidade de Nova York. Ele também é um dos maiores críticos do bitcoin, afirmando no passado que o bitcoin acabaria sendo adicionado ao „museu das moedas fracassadas“ com várias outras moedas digitais. Agora, entretanto, em uma nova entrevista, ele afirma que o bitcoin poderia potencialmente servir como uma „reserva parcial de valor“.

Ele explicou:

[A bitcoin é] talvez uma reserva parcial de valor porque, ao contrário de milhares de outras moedas que eu chamo de sh*t, ela não pode ser rebaixada tão facilmente porque há pelo menos um algoritmo que decide o quanto a oferta de bitcoin aumenta com o tempo porque para a maioria dessas outras, literalmente, é feita ad hoc, e elas estão sendo rebaixadas mais rapidamente do que o que a [Reserva Federal dos Estados Unidos] está fazendo.

Embora de repente ele seja positivo em relação ao bitcoin, ele não sente necessariamente a mesma coisa em relação ao blockchain e permanece um pouco cético em relação a isso. Ele comenta:

Na minha opinião, [bitcoin] não é escalável, não é seguro, não é descentralizado, não é uma moeda, e lembre-se que muitos bancos centrais, começando agora com o chinês, o sueco, mas até mesmo a zona do euro, estão começando a pensar em criar uma moeda digital do banco central. Uma vez que você tenha um banco central moeda digital, cada indivíduo pode usar uma conta no banco central para fazer pagamentos.

No início da semana passada, o Banco Central Europeu (BCE) realizou um fórum de dois dias com Christine Lagarde, Jerome Powell do Fed e Andrew Bailey do Banco da Inglaterra para discutir a digitalização de moedas no futuro. O BCE deu até mesmo a entender que poderá vir a lançar uma versão digital do euro no futuro próximo.

O mundo criptográfico está se movendo para frente

Paolo Ardoino – diretor de tecnologia da bitcoin e da crypto exchange Bitfinex – mencionou que este seria um enorme passo em frente para a bitcoin e a crypto em geral, afirmando:

Marcos como este representam passos na ascensão do rei do cripto. Aqueles que ainda dizem que o bitcoin é um ativo ruim e vêem apenas obstáculos em seu caminho, não entendem mais o mundo em que vivemos.
