Krypto Markt Cap nähert sich ATH als Bitcoin Tops $58K

Die Kryptowährung Marktkapital fügt $100 Milliarden in einem Tag als BTC sprang nördlich von $58,000, während ETH über $1,800.

Bitcoin hat in den letzten 24 Stunden $3,000 an Wert zugelegt, nachdem positive Nachrichten von dem riesigen Finanzdienstleistungsunternehmen Visa kamen. Darüber hinaus hat Ethereum, das im Mittelpunkt dieser Ankündigung stand, sogar noch mehr gewonnen, indem es an einem Tag um über $100 gestiegen ist.

In der Zwischenzeit ist die Marktkapitalisierung der Kryptowährung dabei, ebenfalls ein neues Allzeithoch zu erreichen.

BTC überwindet $58K

Wie CryptoPotato gestern berichtete, hatte sich Bitcoin Bank nach ein paar Tagen mit kleinen Gewinnen beruhigt. Die allererste Kryptowährung wurde nach einigen erfolglosen Ausbruchsversuchen um die 55.000 $ gehandelt.

Die Situation änderte sich jedoch, als das multinationale US-Finanzdienstleistungsunternehmen Visa sagte, dass es die Zahlungsabwicklung mit USDC auf Ethereum ermöglichen wird.

Die primäre Kryptowährung reagierte mit einem plötzlichen Preisanstieg, der ihren Preis innerhalb weniger Stunden um mehr als 3.000 US-Dollar ansteigen ließ. Folglich führte dies zu einem Intraday-Hoch von etwa $58.300 (auf Bitstamp).

Obwohl BTC seither mit ein paar hundert Dollar zurückgegangen ist, liegt er auf 24-Stunden-Skala immer noch etwa 5% im Plus.

Laut den technischen Indikatoren befindet sich die erste Widerstandslinie von Bitcoin bei $58.350, gefolgt von $60.000, $60.800 und dem Allzeithoch von $61.780. Alternativ sind die Unterstützungsniveaus, die helfen könnten, falls der Preis wieder einbricht, $57.500, $56.500 und $55.000.

Alts im grünen Bereich; ETH über $1,8K

Die gestrige Ankündigung von Visa hatte erwartungsgemäß die größten Auswirkungen auf Ethereum, wenn man bedenkt, dass die Abrechnungen die Blockchain von Visa nutzen. Infolgedessen ist ETH innerhalb eines Tages um etwa 7% gestiegen und steht derzeit über $1.800. Dies kommt 24 Stunden nachdem die zweitgrößte Kryptowährung unter $1.700 kämpfte.

Die meisten der larger-cap altcoins sind auch im grünen Bereich. Dazu gehören Binance Coin (BNB – 2%), Cardano (ADA – 1%), Polkadot (DOT – 4%), Ripple (XRP – 4%) und Uniswap (UNI – 1,5%). Im Gegensatz dazu sind Litecoin (-1,5%) und THETA (-2,5%) leicht im Minus.

Der beeindruckendste Gewinner seit gestern ist Holo, mit einem Anstieg von 66%. Außerdem ist HOT in den letzten sieben Tagen um 140% gestiegen und wird derzeit bei $0.017 gehandelt.

Dent (32%), Celo (20%), OKB (18%), Huobi Token (17%), ICON (17%), Solana (15%), Compound (14%), OMG Network (14%), Yearn.Finance (11%), und Algorand (10%) folgen.

Letztendlich ist die kumulative Marktkapitalisierung aller Kryptowährungen an einem Tag um etwa 100 Milliarden Dollar auf 1,830 Billionen Dollar gestiegen.

Tesla, Bitcoin y el espacio criptográfico: ¿continúa el espectáculo Musk? Los expertos responden

Esto es lo que piensan los expertos de la industria de las criptomonedas y blockchain sobre la reciente inversión de Tesla de $ 1.5 mil millones en Bitcoin.

Si bien 2020 fue un año importante para Bitcoin ( BTC ), el año que acaba de comenzar de 2021 ya está lleno de grandes sorpresas

El 8 de febrero, el precio de Bitcoin aumentó casi $ 3,000 en minutos , luego aumentó un 20% en 24 horas , todo debido a la noticia de que Tesla de Elon Musk asignó $ 1,5 mil millones de su balance a BTC.

La misma semana, el banco más antiguo de los Estados Unidos, el Bank of New York Mellon, anunció planes para mantener, transferir y emitir Bitcoin Investor. Mastercard también planea admitir criptomonedas en 2021 para sus casi mil millones de usuarios. Y la comisionada de la SEC, Hester Peirce, comúnmente conocida como „Crypto Mom“ en la comunidad criptográfica, incluso subrayó la urgente necesidad de claridad regulatoria debido a los recientes eventos en el espacio.

Con PayPal, Tesla, Mastercard, BNY Mellon y otros ingresando a la criptosfera, ¿no se está volviendo más claro que nunca que los activos digitales ahora son parte de la corriente principal? ¿Que su adopción masiva ha comenzado y es una cuestión de presente, no de futuro?

El año pasado, Cointelegraph pidió a los expertos en las industrias de la criptografía y la cadena de bloques sus opiniones sobre la integración de la criptografía y la adopción masiva de PayPal y sobre la importancia de 2020 en la historia de Bitcoin . Esta vez, la pregunta es: ¿Qué significa la reciente inversión de Tesla de $ 1.5 mil millones en Bitcoin para el espacio criptográfico en términos de los mercados financieros, para la adopción criptográfica y la construcción de marca, y para toda la industria en general?

Alex Tapscott, director gerente de Ninepoint Partners:

“La compra de Bitcoin por parte de Tesla sin duda envió una onda de choque a las oficinas de las esquinas de todos los directores financieros y tesoreros corporativos en Estados Unidos y más allá. Uno de los muchos beneficios de Bitcoin es que actúa como oro digital, diversificando las participaciones corporativas y reduciendo el riesgo cambiario. Todo ejecutivo financiero debería afilar sus lápices para comprender si debería comprarlo y, en última instancia, cuándo.

Si bien Tesla no es la primera empresa pública en comprar Bitcoin para su tesorería, es de lejos la más importante. ¡Qué poético es que Elon Musk, un empresario espacial, empujara Bitcoin a su velocidad de escape en la América corporativa!

La decisión de Tesla sigue a una serie de anuncios de alto perfil de grandes empresas, que se ajusta a un patrón de adopción institucional y corporativa acelerada. Igualmente consecuente para la asignación de tesorería fue la decisión de Tesla de aceptar Bitcoin. Esto sigue los pasos de varias otras grandes empresas innovadoras como PayPal, Visa y otras que están construyendo una superautopista hacia la adopción masiva de Bitcoin, lo que permite no solo la compra y venta de Bitcoin, sino también la integración en sus redes comerciales. Para fines de 2021, esperaría que muchas más empresas no solo posean Bitcoin sino que tengan una estrategia real de Bitcoin „.

Da Hongfei, fundador de Neo y fundador y director ejecutivo de Onchain:

“Esta es una señal muy prometedora para el interés general y su creciente disposición a adoptar blockchain. Además, afirma que blockchain y Bitcoin están aquí para quedarse en el futuro.

A lo largo de 2020, cada vez más instituciones financieras invirtieron en Bitcoin, y estoy seguro de que la adopción de blockchain se está acelerando a medida que el paradigma financiero global cambia para adoptar por completo la digitalización y la descentralización. En el futuro, debemos seguir impulsando estándares efectivos en toda la industria, así como una mayor integración para cumplir plenamente con el potencial de cambio de juego de blockchain „.

Analisi dei prezzi dell’etereum: gennaio

Analisi dei prezzi dell’etereum: gennaioy

Il prezzo dell’etereum ha colpito un nuovo triidrato di alluminio di 1476 dollari lunedì dopo aver recentemente testato il precedente triidrato di alluminio pochi giorni fa. Mentre la rinascita del triidrato di Crypto Code alluminio è rialzista nel breve termine, non si è ancora stabilito come si evolverà la prospettiva a lungo termine. Al momento della stampa ci sono prospettive a lungo termine contrastanti, ma lo scenario a breve termine sembra ribassista per la piattaforma dei contratti intelligenti.

Negoziando a 1423 dollari al momento della stampa, il prezzo dell’Ethereum si trova al di sopra di un’importante area di resistenza; la mancata conquista di questa resistenza mette gli orsi in controllo.Il prezzo dell’Etereum mostra un canale parallelo ascendente che teoricamente richiede un breakout ribassista. Tuttavia, considerando l’afflusso di capitali e gli investimenti istituzionali, si tratta di un ciclo di tori e un breakout ribassista sembra improbabile. Semmai, il breakout dal recente canale parallelo ascendente a fine dicembre è la prova dell’encierro.

Per questo motivo, questa volta, il prezzo dei PF è destinato ad aumentare. Al momento della stampa, il prezzo dell’Ethereum sta testando la linea di tendenza superiore del canale parallelo e deve decidere se si dirigerà verso l’alto o se verrà respinto e si dirigerà verso il basso. Se il prezzo viene respinto o forma un massimo inferiore sull’OBV, allora ci sarà una divergenza ribassista tra il prezzo e l’OBV. Questa divergenza suggerisce inoltre un calo per la piattaforma smart-contracts.

Inoltre, l’indicatore Stocastico RSI suggerisce anche che il prezzo è ipercomprato e si sta preparando ad una potenziale tendenza al ribasso a causa della formazione di un crossover ribassista.

L’indicatore RSI non ha ancora colpito la zona di ipercomprato, ma mostra segni di diminuzione degli acquirenti – il che indica un probabile ritracciamento. Come accennato in precedenza, l’indicatore OBV mostra che il volume degli acquisti si sta riducendo, indicando una divergenza ribassista e quindi un ritiro.

Conclusione

Un richiamo alla linea di tendenza superiore spingerà molto probabilmente il prezzo verso la linea mediana del canale parallelo a 1300 dollari, il che significherebbe un calo dal 7 al 10%. È anche probabile che il prezzo rimbalzi sul supporto a 1346 dollari, che coincide con il livello del 50% di Fibonacci.

Oltre agli indicatori, lo strumento di estensione Fibonacci mostra che c’è un’area tascabile dorata al di sopra del prezzo corrente, che è una forte area di supporto/resistenza. Quindi, una tendenza più alta per il prezzo qui richiederebbe una forte pressione di acquisto.

El capital de Three Arrows eclipsa 1.000 millones de dólares en compras de Bitcoin

  • Three Arrows Capital, un fondo de cobertura con sede en Singapur, ha eclipsado 1.000 millones de dólares en participaciones de Bitcoin.
  • La empresa inversora compró el Bitcoin a través de Grayscale, una empresa de gestión de activos digitales.
  • Three Arrows Capital es la segunda empresa que ha invertido más de 1.000 millones de dólares en Bitcoin después de MicroStrategy.

Muchos eligieron invertir en Bitcoin

En el último año, algunos de los mayores fondos de cobertura y empresas de capital riesgo del mundo han estado invirtiendo en Bitcoin.

Muchos eligieron invertir en Bitcoin como una cobertura potencial contra la inflación y como un almacén y transferencia de valor más eficiente. Three Arrows Capital, un fondo de cobertura con base en Singapur, es la segunda compañía, además de MicroStrategy, en invertir en más de 1.000 millones de dólares en BTC.

Sin embargo, Three Arrows no es propietaria directa de Bitcoin, ya que está gestionada por la empresa de gestión de activos digitales Grayscale. Grayscale es una firma altamente regulada y segura que ofrece la posibilidad a inversores e instituciones de invertir en un producto Bitcoin más seguro.

38888888 $GBTC, 36969 $BTC

Grayscale ofrece una variedad de diferentes fideicomisos de criptografía que se negocian públicamente, siendo el más grande, con diferencia, su Fideicomiso Bitcoin ($GBTC). Three Arrows posee 38888888 GBTC, que equivale a 36969 bitcoins.

Kyle Davies, el cofundador de Three Arrows Capital, hizo un tweet confirmando la noticia. Three Arrows Capital es la última firma que ha invertido una gran suma de dinero en Bitcoin, pero ciertamente no es la única.

Miles de millones de dólares de inversión institucional ya han entrado en el mercado de Bitcoin, tanto con y sin la escala de grises, y no parece que esta tendencia de inversión se vaya a ralentizar en un futuro próximo.

Mientras Bitcoin se enfrentaba a su primer 10 por ciento de retroceso desde que rompió el punto de precio de 20.000 dólares, Samson Mow, CSO de Blockstream tweeteó,

„Sé que no están realmente asustados con #Bitcoin, pero en caso de que lo estén… One River (fondo de $1.6B) compró $600M y comprará $400M más, Guggenheim (fondo de $5.3B) comprará $530M, SkyBridge (fondo de $9.2B) compró $182M, Ruffer (fondo de $27B) compró $744M, MassMutual ($675B AUM) compró $100M.“

Con algunas de las compañías y firmas de inversión más grandes e influyentes del mundo subiéndose al tren de Bitcoin, se puede esperar que esto sea sólo el comienzo de la entrada de capital que entrará en el mercado de la criptodivisa.

Los influyentes CEO’s convertidos en evangelistas de Bitcoin como Davies y Michael Saylor de MicroStrategy probablemente continuarán hablando de esta tecnología y su potencial.

Congressmen criticize U.S. Treasury for rushing approval of new crypto regulation proposal

As many in the crypto industry said, 15 days during the holidays is not enough time to respond.

Nine congressmen signed a letter to Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, arguing against the Treasury’s decision to grant so little time to comment on the new crypto regulations.

Biden plans to have the former Federal Reserve chairman and leading Crypto Wealth opponent lead the U.S. Treasury.

It’s here: the U.S. Treasury is proposing a law to control crypto-currencies going into self-custody wallets

The letter written on December 31 was created in response to the Treasury’s recent proposal to have registered crypto businesses retain more information from customers, especially when they conduct transactions with proprietary portfolios.

The proposal triggered widespread outrage from the crypto community. Among the complaints, many cite the fact that Mnuchin is removing this rule just weeks before the Biden administration comes to power, and with it his likely replacement, Janet Yellen.

Presents comments against FinCEN’s new law on crypto wallets, says Coin Center CEO

The new regulatory proposals are accompanied by invitations for public comment. This is still true in this case, but while the usual comment period is 60 days, the Treasury has requested only 15 here. The comment period expires on January 4, which is the point that the signatories of yesterday’s letter are fighting against:

„The proposal in question was made public just before the Christmas vacations, and announced that the public would have 15 days to submit comments. An eight-working-day comment period over two vacations is not appropriate for regulating any industry, and could result in interested parties being unable to respond in any meaningful way.

The congressmen who signed the letter include many of the usual suspects in cryptology legislation. Blockchain Caucus members Warren Davidson, Tom Emmer, David Schweikert, Darren Soto and Ted Budd signed, as did Bill Foster. However, a few less involved figures in the crypt industry have joined, including Tulsi Gabbard, Senator Tom Cotton, and incoming New Democrat Coalition President Suzan DelBene.

Since the formal open comment period closes Monday and today is, as you may have noticed, New Year’s Day, it is unlikely that the Treasury will back down. However, there is talk of a lawsuit against the department on the basis of a procedural violation, should this rule go into effect.

France: Bitpanda exchange obtains PSAN registration

The Austrian cryptocurrency exchange has obtained PSAN registration.

The exchange is the first foreign structure to obtain the sesame from the AMF

Bitpanda, a cryptocurrency exchange based in Vienna, Austria, is now registered with the AMF as a Service Provider on Digital Assets (PSAN) for the custody of digital assets and the purchase / sale of digital assets .

The exchange becomes the fifth structure after Coinhouse and StackinSat to obtain registration as a Digital Asset Service Provider (PSAN).

Bitpanda is even the first foreign company to obtain the precious sesame to operate in France.

What is the PSAN status

The law of May 22, 2019, known as the Pacte law, created a regulatory framework for PSANs establishing in France the status of digital asset service provider, covering a large number of activities. This regime provides for compulsory registration with the AMF for certain players and optional authorization. Only approved PSANs can engage in canvassing, for example.

Registration with the AMF is mandatory for two types of service: the purchase / sale of cryptocurrency against fiat currency that is legal tender (for example, exchanging BTC for euros) and the custody of cryptocurrency for the account. third parties (retention of clients‘ private keys and ability to use them on their behalf). Service providers who started their activity before the entry into force of the law had until December 18, 2020 to complete the procedures.

The AMF has so far issued a registration to 5 PSANs in France. About twenty registration files are said to be under investigation.

Compound Finance announces its new multi-asset blockchain

Compound Finance is about to launch its own blockchain.

The aim is to integrate more assets from other registries.

The COMP has grown by 40% since the start of December

The DeFi lending and borrowing platform Compound Finance is launching its own distributed ledger to enable the transfer of value and liquidity.

Compound Finance pioneered liquidity farms, being one of the first to launch incentives for the distribution of governance tokens in June 2020. DeFi protocol now goes further with its latest product, the Compound Chain.

The new blockchain has been described as being able to store and inexpensively transfer value and liquidity between peer registers. In other words, it is cross-chain interoperability.

Today we are pleased to present to you the white paper on the Compound Chain, a distributed ledger capable of transferring value and liquidity between peer ledgers.

Another Ethereum rival?

One of the goals of the new ledger is to bring more assets to the Compound ecosystem, without necessarily competing with Ethereum :

Compound Chain ”is a tool that could bring more assets into the protocol from a variety of registers eg Polkadot, Solana, Optimism PBC, Quorum, Celo, etc. It is designed to complement Ethereum contracts, be controlled by the governance of the COMP, and extend the effects of the DeFi network.

At a virtual DeFi summit on Wednesday, December 16 in Bangkok, Thailand, CEO and founder Robert Leshner said it was a top priority:

Over time, more real world assets [will be added] as the Ethereum blockchain integrates them.

In the white paper , it is added that it will be a stand-alone blockchain preparing for the rapid adoption and growth of various tokenized assets from new ledgers including ETH 2.0 and central bank digital currencies ( CBDCs ).

CASH will be created through borrowing, similar to the creation of DAI on MakerDAO, and will be used to pay transaction fees. CASH lending, holding, and staking can also earn interest.

The announcement added that the team is actively working on setting up a testnet with a limited feature set, slated for release next quarter (Q1 2021).

The COMP course

Compound’s COMP token , which sparked the DeFi boom , climbed 13% on December 18 along with the entire crypto market. At the end of the day, it was trading for $ 157, posting a drop to its daily opening price of $ 178.

The COMP is up 7% this week. It has already increased by more than 40% in December, as it recovers from a two-month lull. The token is still down 36% from its peak of $ 245 in June.

$ 1200 US Stimulus Check er nå verdt nesten $ 3000 hvis investert i Bitcoin

Stimuleringssjekken på $ 1200 som ble gitt ut til amerikanske borgere som et hjelpemiddel mot COVID-19-pandemien, ville nå være verdt nesten $ 3000 hvis den investeres i BTC.

Det har gått omtrent syv måneder siden den amerikanske regjeringen sendte de første stimuleringskontrollene til en verdi av 1200 dollar til mange borgere. Interessant nok ville det beløpet nå være verdt nesten $ 3000 hvis det ble investert i Bitcoin ettersom aktivaprisen har verdsatt betydelig siden den gang, i motsetning til dollar.

Stimulus Checks: The History
Verdens regjeringer ble overrasket da COVID-19-pandemien brøt ut tidligere i år. En av de første forretningsordrene inkluderte å gripe vanlig liv slik vi kjente det. Landsdekkende lockdowns begynte å forekomme globalt. Gatene ble tomme da folk ble værende i husene sine.

Det er fortsatt diskutabelt hvis disse ekstreme tiltakene hadde en reell positiv innvirkning på spredningen av viruset måneder senere. En viss ting er imidlertid at det hadde reelle konsekvenser for mange menneskers jobber, og naturlig nok deres økonomi.

De mektigste økonomiene svarte med å utstede såkalte stimuluspakker. De fungerer som skatterabatter og insentiver for å forhindre finanskrise, samtidig som de gir sårt tiltrengte kontanter til strevende borgere.

Verdens største land etter nominelt BNP førte anklagen med massive pakkeavtaler verdt billioner dollar. Hver voksen som tjener under $ 75 000 i året i USA hadde rett til en sjekk til $ 1200. De første slike sjekkene ble sendt ut i midten av april.

$ 1200 i BTC i april Verdt nesten $ 3000 i dag

Selv om de fleste rapportene den gang antydet at folk brukte sine nylig oppnådde dollar til mat og husleie, er det tvingende å sjekke hva som ville skjedd hvis de faktisk ble investert i bitcoin. Tross alt så den største USA-baserte kryptobørs Coinbase en betydelig økning av innskudd verdt nøyaktig 1200 dollar i løpet av den tiden.

Det stadig kreative kryptokurrency-samfunnet etablerte en Twitter-profil etter hvordan den hypotetiske investeringen i BTC presterer. Den sporer hvor mye $ 1200 ville ha vært verdt hvis pengene ble satt i bitcoin 15. april.

På den tiden handlet den primære kryptovalutaen mellom $ 6,600 og $ 6,800. Så hvis noen virkelig hadde byttet $ 1200 for BTC til $ 6600, ville han ha endt opp med litt over 0,18 bitcoins. I dag handler eiendelen rundt $ 16.000. Som sådan ville det samme beløpet på 0,18 bitcoins være verdt nord for $ 2900. Dette vil bety en avkastning på 142% på bare syv måneder.

Hva med USD?
Det er også verdt å utforske hva som har skjedd med dollaren siden den gang. Mens BTC har skutt i været, falt verdens reservevaluta faktisk sammenlignet med andre fiat.

Dollaren handlet rundt 0,920 mot euro i midten av april, som var nær det årlige høydepunktet. Den har mistet 8% siden den gang og er nede på 0,845.

USD har også mistet over 6% mot det britiske pundet og den kinesiske yuanen. Den fremtredende amerikanske økonomen Peter Schiff spådde en enda verre fremtid for dollaren og sa at selv hyperinflasjon ikke er helt ute av bildet.

På den annen side mener Gemini-medstifter Tyler Winklevoss at de nevnte stimulansepakkene vil fortsette å skade USD og bemerket at de er en „kode for å kjøpe Bitcoin.“

Bitcoin records 100 days over US$10,000

BTC reached a milestone on US Election Day. The $100,000 could now be a next target if history repeats itself.

Bitcoin (BTC) has officially set a new record. The BTC/USD pair was now over $10,000 for 100 days. Larger gains were to follow next.

When the US presidential election ended in the United States on 3 November, Bitcoin reached a milestone. It managed to stay in the five-digit range for 100 days without interruption.

Bitcoin record: 100 days over $10,000
This is impressive not only because it is a record to stay over $10,000 for so long. From previous data it is clear that the BTC/USD pair rises rapidly once Bitcoin stays above a significant level for 100 days.

As Cointelegraph reported last week, the time span varied depending on the level. But the result was the same, namely strong gains.

Quantitative analyst PlanB explained that the untested 200-week moving average of the crypto currency has now exceeded $7,000 for the first time. This supports the argument that Bitcoin will be higher in the future.

If the pattern from the past is repeated, Bitcoin could now grow relative to the 200-week average as it approaches the next halving of the block reward in 2024.

Strategist expects „parabolic increase“ in 2021
Bitcoin could see a „parabolic increase“ next year if it behaves as it did after the previous halving, as one well-known analyst predicted.

In a tweet on 4 November, Mike McGlone, Bloomberg Intelligence’s chief merchandise strategist, indicated that next year would be extremely bullish for BTC.

The reason for this is a simple balance of supply and demand. Bitcoin’s supply had recently halved in May, while buyer demand for new coins was only increasing.

„Bitcoin could experience a parabolic year 2021, as it did in 2013 and 2017, if these patterns were to repeat,“ he wrote.

„New highs are a next possible expression of this and could only be a matter of time. Unless something we do not foresee hinders greater acceptance and demand“.

Bitcoin (BTC): the hashrate plunges, where will the price go?

The average Bitcoin network (BTC) hashrate has declined by 27% in two weeks. What caused this drop and what will be the consequences on the price of BTC?

As data from Blockchain.com shows , Bitcoin’s hashrate initiated its downfall around October 18. As it passed 146 pe / s, it dropped to 107 pe / s in the space of two weeks, its most dizzying dive this year:

Bitcoin’s hashrate thus returns to levels that it had not seen since June 2020. It should be noted that the two other major collapses of the hashrate in 2020 were due to the crash of the cryptocurrency markets at the start of the Covid-crisis. 19 last March, then during the Bitcoin halving in May.

How to explain this fall?

Several factors can explain this sudden drop. On the one hand, the mining difficulty started to rise again on October 17th. The difficulty was automatically readjusted by + 3.62%, making BTCs harder to produce. However, it should be noted that the difficulty had already increased by + 11.35% in September, which had not triggered such a drop in the hashrate.

This indicator must therefore be taken in conjunction with a meteorological trend. The rainy season has indeed ended in Sichuan in China, where a large number of mining farms are located. Local miners can no longer take advantage of particularly low electricity prices during the rainy season, which is why a certain number of them have stopped participating in the network.

Note also the long-term effects of Bitcoin halving, which can also be felt. Mining rewards have been halved since last May, which immediately eliminated some miners. The recent drop in hashrate may therefore also be due to a new wave of abandonment by minors who were hanging on until then.

Bitcoin (BTC) price on the rise

Yet the BTC price has been in great shape in recent days. This weekend, Bitcoin did indeed briefly exceed $ 14,000. This is a threshold he had not reached since January 2018, the period when he had known his all-time high, approaching $ 20,000.

Over the same period when the hashrate fell, the price of Bitcoin thus increased by + 22% :

This morning, the price of BTC exceeds $ 13,700, with a market cap of $ 253 billion. This corresponds to an increase of + 48% over the last twelve months . However, traders remain cautious: the results of the US presidential election fall this week, and disruptions are expected. The effect on traditional markets and cryptocurrencies could therefore be substantial.
