A plataforma de arte programável Async garante mais de US $ 2 milhões em financiamento inicial

A Async Art quer liderar o movimento de arte programável com uma nova rodada de financiamento.

Async Art, uma plataforma de token não fungível do Vale do Silício , garantiu mais de US $ 2 milhões em financiamento inicial de pelo menos 10 investidores, destacando a proposta de valor crescente da arte programável.

A empresa anunciou o novo aumento na quarta-feira, destacando o rápido crescimento da Async desde seu lançamento em fevereiro de 2020

Em seu primeiro ano de operação, a Async gerou mais de US $ 1 milhão em vendas de arte e lançou um aplicativo para smart TV para exibir arte digital.

Embora a empresa não tenha especificado como utilizaria os fundos, ela indicou que integrar novos usuários e criar novos monitores eram o foco principal. A Async também está procurando expandir suas vagas de emprego. Atualmente, sua página no LinkedIn tem vagas para um gerente de comunidade e desenvolvedor de aplicativos.

Pelo menos 10 investidores participaram da rodada de sementes: Lemniscap, Galaxy Interactive, Signum Growth Capital, Semântica, Blue Wire Capital, Collab + Currency, Inflection, Divergence Ventures, o LAO e Placeholder.

Async descreveu a arte programável como um „novo movimento“ que permite aos criadores „desconstruir seu trabalho em ‚camadas‘ e dotá-los de habilidades“.

Lemniscap, um dos principais investidores da Async Art, descreveu a mídia como a próxima fronteira para a ruptura:

“Ao permitir a propriedade compartilhada de peças de arte e a influência dinâmica sobre sua aparência, a Async Art está virando de cabeça para baixo o conceito existente de arte e abrindo caminho para uma categoria totalmente nova de mídia programável.“

Async também foi destaque na Christie’s, uma grande casa de leilões que planeja oferecer obras NFT autônomas no final deste mês. Noah Davis, um especialista em arte da Christie’s, disse recentemente que os NFTs “viram uma rápida ascensão nos últimos anos – especialmente nos últimos meses”.

Async também revelou a arte „Right Place & Right Time“ de Matt Kane em março de 2020, o que o ajudou a ganhar um lugar no Top 100 da Cointelegraph . A arte, que evolui dinamicamente em resposta à volatilidade do preço do Bitcoin ( BTC ), é considerada uma obra-prima no nicho emergente da NFT.

SecretSwap ist die Antwort des Secret Network

SecretSwap ist die Antwort des Secret Network auf DeFi Privacy

SecretSwap funktioniert ähnlich wie Uniswap oder SushiSwap, hat aber auch Vorteile für die Privatsphäre.
Geheime Verträge ermöglichen es, verschlüsselte Daten zu verwenden, ohne sie auf einer öffentlichen Blockchain oder gar den beteiligten Crypto Bank Knoten zu offenbaren.

SecretSwap ist die Antwort des Secret Network auf DeFi Privacy

Das Secret Network, ein Protokoll, das sich auf die Privatsphäre für dezentrales Finanzwesen (DeFi) konzentriert, hat SecretSwap gestartet, einen Front-Running-resistenten und Cross-Chain-dezentralen Austausch. Es ist jetzt live auf dem Secret Network mainnet.

SecretSwap verwendet den SNIP-20 secret token standard und Secret Ethereum bridge.

„SecretSwap ist der erste front-running-resistente, cross-chain [automatisierter Market Maker]. Seine Architektur (die auf Secret Network basiert) gibt SecretSwap Vorteile in der Benutzerfreundlichkeit, schützt Benutzer vor bösartigen Bot-Aktivitäten, erhöht die Verfügbarkeit von Vermögenswerten und hält die Gebühren viel niedriger als auf Ethereum“, sagte Tor Bair, der Geschäftsführer und Vorsitzende der Secret Foundation, in einer direkten Nachricht.

DeFi Privatsphäre

Laut Bair, SecretSwap funktioniert ähnlich wie andere AMMs, wie Uniswap oder SushiSwap. Da es jedoch auf datenschutzbewahrenden „geheimen“ Smart Contracts basiert, sind die Benutzer vor Front-Running-Bots und anderen Arten von bösartigen Aktivitäten geschützt.

Front-Running ist der Akt, eine Transaktion als erste in der Ausführungswarteschlange zu erhalten, direkt bevor eine bekannte zukünftige Transaktion stattfindet. Bots, die solche Front-Running-Operationen ausführen, indem sie etwas höhere Gasgebühren zahlen, waren ein Knackpunkt für DeFi, und mehrere Projekte haben Datenschutzlösungen entwickelt, um dieses Problem zu lösen.

„Unter der Oberfläche jeder Transaktion, die ihren Weg in die Blockchain findet, gibt es erbitterte Kriege um jedes bisschen Gewinn“, sagte Alex Manuskin, ein Blockchain-Forscher bei ZenGo, der sich in einem früheren Interview mit CoinDesk mit Front-Running beschäftigt hat.

„Wenn Sie zufällig auf eine Arbitragemöglichkeit stoßen oder sogar einen Fehler in einem Vertrag bemerken, ist es sehr wahrscheinlich, dass es schwierig sein wird, diesen Wert zu extrahieren, ohne entweder selbst einen Bot zu betreiben, um die Frontrunner abzuwehren, sich mit einem Miner zu verbinden und diesen zu bezahlen, um Ihre goldene Gans-Transaktion zu verbergen, oder die Transaktion so komplex zu machen, dass die Frontrunner sie nicht bemerken.“

The Secret Network’s private liquidity hub ist eine der ersten, die auf mainnet, nach dem Start ihrer Ethereum-Brücke. Diese Brücke lässt Vermögenswerte zwischen Ethereum und dem Secret Network privat übertragen und bietet im Wesentlichen Interoperabilität zwischen den Protokollen.

Geheime Verträge

Laut einem Secret Network Blog-Post, der über den Start von SecretSwap im Testnet berichtete, liegt der Vorteil von SecretSwap in geheimen Verträgen und dem SNIP-20-Token-Standard.

Geheime Verträge ermöglichen es, verschlüsselte Daten zu verwenden, ohne sie auf einer öffentlichen Blockchain oder sogar für die Knoten selbst offenzulegen.

„Da die Eingaben in den Swap-Vertrag verschlüsselt sind, kann kein böswilliger Akteur oder Miner Transaktionen, die im Mempool warten, auf Kosten ehrlicher Nutzer vorwegnehmen“, heißt es im Blogpost. „Netzwerk-Gebühren für die Interaktion mit SecretSwap werden in SCRT bezahlt (wie alle anderen geheimen Verträge).“

Die AMM unterstützt Pools für geheime Token, die auf der Ethereum Bridge unterstützt werden, sowie solche, die in Zukunft unterstützt werden.

„Wir haben bereits 50 Millionen Dollar an Ethereum-Vermögenswerten als geheime Token in unserem Netzwerk gesperrt“, sagte Bair.

Marathon achète une sauce, ajoutant 150 millions de dollars en bitcoin

Le Marathon Patent Group (MARA), qui est coté au NASDAQ, a acheté pour 150 millions de dollars de bitcoin (btc).

L’entreprise cherche à consolider ses réserves de trésorerie avec le bitcoin.

La firme de Las Vegas a acheté pour la première fois des bitcoins sur le marché libre.

Marathon, qui est cotée en bourse sur le NASDAQ, a acheté près de 5 000 bitcoins pour 150 millions de dollars. La société de services financiers NYDIG a facilité la transaction.

L’entreprise a déclaré que l’achat s’était fait „rapidement“. NYDIG a également effectué l’achat de 100 millions de dollars de bitcoin par Mass Mutual en décembre 2020.

Une micro stratégie

Comme MicroStrategy, qui a acheté pour 10 millions de dollars de btc supplémentaires lors du plongeon de la semaine dernière, Marathon veut augmenter sa trésorerie. Il considère la détention de btc comme une stratégie à long terme, similaire à la détention de réserves de trésorerie, mais plus avant-gardiste.

Pendant ce temps, Michael Saylor, le PDG de MicroStrategy, a expliqué de manière très colorée pourquoi les bitcoins ne peuvent pas, et ne veulent pas, être fortement réglementés. Dans une vidéo, il a expliqué sa conviction qu’une fois que les consommateurs et les entreprises de détail auront mis la main sur la cryptocarte, il sera financièrement insoutenable de ne pas l’accepter.

Il a expliqué qu’en fin de compte, si vous mémorisez votre clé privée, personne ne peut ouvrir votre coffre-fort, même avec l’autorité du gouvernement. (Vous pouvez toujours dire que vous avez „oublié“ votre clé si la situation s’aggrave, a-t-il dit).

Bitcoin sur le Nasdaq

En conservant le bitcoin dans la trésorerie de l’entreprise, Marathon est l’une des seules entreprises cotées au NASDAQ à pouvoir offrir une exposition à la monnaie numérique. L’année dernière, l’action de Marathon a progressé de près de 900 %.

C’est la première fois que la société, qui exploite principalement du bitcoin, a acheté des réserves sur le marché libre. C’est un signe d'“achat de la baisse“ et semble suggérer que Marathon croit que le prix augmente.

L’action Marathon a augmenté de près de 900% en 2020

Le PDG Merrick Okamoto a déclaré que la société avait engagé 103 060 mineurs, qui devraient être entièrement déployés au début de l’année 2022. Il a déclaré qu’au vu des difficultés actuelles de l’industrie minière, l’entreprise produirait 55 à 60 BTC (1,8 à 2 millions de dollars) par jour.

Nouveaux ASIC

Le 28 décembre 2020, Marathon a annoncé qu’il avait acheté 70 000 mineurs ASIC S-19 à Bitmain. Ces ASIC spécialement conçus extraient le bitcoin à haut rendement. L’achat a coûté 170 millions de dollars.

Selon Okamoto, cette commande était la plus importante que Bitmain ait jamais reçue et en ferait l’une des plus grandes sociétés minières du monde. Sur la base de cet achat, le taux de hachage total de l’entreprise pourrait être de 10,36 EH/s.

Afin d’augmenter encore l’efficacité de l’exploitation minière, la société s’est associée à Beowulf Energy pour obtenir de l’énergie bon marché pour faire fonctionner les mineurs.

Les mineurs américains

Cette expansion est également importante car le nombre de mineurs de bitcoin en Chine suscite une inquiétude croissante. La Chine détient bien plus de 50 % des mineurs. Et certains s’inquiètent d’une perturbation du réseau coordonnée par le gouvernement. Il existe également des initiatives américaines visant à introduire l’exploitation minière en Amérique du Nord.

Certaines sociétés ont développé des entreprises en échange d’une énergie bon marché. Le cabinet et les conseillers du président américain Joe Biden, qui ont des antécédents mitigés en matière de cryptologie monétaire, pourraient affecter le succès de ces entreprises.

Bitcoin could become a reserve currency, according to the former Canadian Prime Minister

Stephen Harper, the former Prime Minister of Canada, has announced his support for Bitcoin (BTC). He considers that cryptography could become part of the monetary reserves of the world’s countries in the future.

Bitcoin could become a reserve currency, according to the former Canadian Prime Minister.
Will Bitcoin integrate the monetary reserves of economies of scale?

This is the hypothesis raised by Stephen Harper in an interview at the Vancouver Resource Investment Conference. The man served as prime minister from 2006 to 2015 before handing over to Justin Trudeau. He mentioned Profit Secret in the context of a weakening of the U.S. dollar (USD), which is the most important reserve currency for economies of scale.

Stephen Harper believes that the USD can only be dislodged by a major currency, such as the euro (EUR) and the yuan (RMB). But he considers that the value of the euro is not sufficiently guaranteed over time. He also mentions problems with the arbitrary measures taken by the Chinese government, which influence the yuan’s exchange rate.

Hence one possibility: to include Bitcoin as a reserve currency :

„It is difficult to see what alternative can exist to the US dollar as a global reserve currency. Beyond gold, Bitcoin, a basket of various assets…“.

However, Harper believes that the USD will remain the most widely used reserve currency, even if other assets are finding their way into central bank reserves.

„I think we’re going to see an expansion of what people think of as reserves, but the US dollar will remain the main asset. »

Seven central banks assess the components of a CBM

Bitcoin finds legitimacy

Nevertheless, a statesman of great stature who mentions Bitcoin as a plausible reserve is a sign of how far cryptography has come in just a few years. Some economies are adopting cryptomoney more widely, including Venezuela. The country now uses Bitcoin to pay certain companies, and the country’s central bank had already discussed the possibility of adding Bitcoin and Ether (ETH) to its reserves.

For economies that are not strangled by sanctions, the inclusion of Bitcoin is of course slower, if not non-existent. But we note that more and more political figures of great importance are mentioning cryptography, a sign of new legitimacy.

1inch announces an airdrop and its addition on FTX

1inch announces an airdrop and its addition on FTX

  • The 1inch network went online on December 25th.
  • The platform is agile and offers what it calls „instant governance“.
  • Six liquidity pools will be in formation by 28 December.

In a series of tweets, 1inch explained the basics of its instant governance function and its aggregation protocol. FTX tweeted that 1inch’s spots and futures contracts are now open.

The 1INCH governance token will be sent to portfolios with previous exposure. Uniswap used Crypto Genius this distribution method for the launch of its UNI tokens in September 2020. 1INCH, similar to about 45% of decentralised solutions, runs on Ethereum.

1inch also said that liquidity extraction would begin on 28 December for those providing liquidity via ETH, DAI, WBTC, USDC, USDT and YFI. The company tweeted that the distribution would represent „0.5% of 1inch’s token offer“ until 10 January 2021. The terms of the exchange claim were as follows:

  • Portfolio registered on the exchange before midnight on 24 December 2020 (UTC)
  • One or more exchanges before September 15th OR
  • A total of four or more trades, OR
  • Volume of at least $20

The agility of 1inch

The founders of 1inch have designed the network to be very agile in the face of changing conditions. In a blog post, the company explains that their solution is called „instant governance“.

This allows owners of governance tokens to have a say on protocol changes in a DAO (Decentralized Autonomous Organization) environment. Working with a DAO model ensures transparency, efficiency and ease of use.
1inch governance

The 1INCH holders will first focus on two fundamental governance issues. The company writes that the aggregation protocol collects the „leftovers“ from the moment the execution of transactions gains a better rate than the one quoted to the user.

Although the designers implemented DEX to offer the best possible prices, differences are likely. In a rapidly changing market, a change, which the platform calls a Spread Surplus, could emerge.

Currently, Spread Surplus is intended for users who refer others to the network. However, 1INCH holders can change this.

The other governance issue at stake is the liquidity protocol. This is the second version of the protocol and price impact fees are at the forefront. The fees increase to give an advantage to liquidity providers and 1INCH holders when volatility increases.

Holders of governance tokens can adjust several features of the Liquidity Protocol. These include fees for price impact and swaps, governance rewards and benchmarks, and the rollback period. The decay period is a means of affecting the price spread after a transaction. It acts as a security measure to help traders avoid head-on attacks.

Coinbase annonce la mise en place des récompenses de l’ETH 2.0, lancement début 2021

Coinbase a annoncé aujourd’hui que la bourse supportera pleinement l’ETH 2.0 avec des fonctionnalités de jalonnement et de négociation, son principal concurrent Kraken ayant annoncé la même chose le 24 novembre.

Principales nouveautés

  • La mise à niveau de l’ETH 2.0 mettra un terme à l’exploitation de l’ETH en faveur d’un consensus sur la preuve des enjeux par le jalonnement et la validation.
  • Coinbase a annoncé le 30 novembre qu’elle soutiendrait le jalonnement de l’ETH 2.0.
  • Les clients de Coinbase pourront convertir l’ETH en ETH 2 et gagner des récompenses de jalonnement, entre autres.

L’annonce de Coinbase de soutenir les récompenses de mise en jeu de l’ETH 2.0 est une étape importante dans l’adoption de la mise à niveau du réseau Ethereum.

Les Pundits affirment que la preuve de mise (Proof of Stake, PoS) est une méthode de validation des transactions plus efficace sur le plan énergétique et plus durable. La nouvelle mise à niveau devrait permettre à Ethereum de traiter beaucoup plus de transactions par seconde que le système actuel de preuve de travail (PoW).

La mise à niveau aura lieu au cours des prochaines années, et Coinbase a signalé que l’échange est prêt à jouer un rôle majeur en permettant aux utilisateurs de miser sur ETH 2.0 et de sécuriser le réseau.

Le nouveau rôle de Coinbase dans Ethereum

Selon Coinbase, ses utilisateurs convertiront bientôt l’ETH en ETH2 et gagneront des récompenses de mise dans leurs comptes Coinbase.

En outre, l’échange facilitera les échanges entre l’ETH et l’ETH2, entre autres cryptocurrences prises en charge.

Aucune date n’a été fixée pour le lancement de cette nouvelle fonctionnalité, et il semble que les clients puissent recevoir des privilèges de mise en jeu à différents moments. Coinbase a déclaré que les clients des juridictions éligibles commenceront à avoir accès aux nouvelles fonctionnalités de l’ETH 2.0 à partir de début 2021, et que plus de détails seront annoncés dans les prochains mois.

Coinbase a fait l’éloge de la mise à niveau d’Ethereum comme étant un développement passionnant visant à s’attaquer à l’extensibilité et aux prix du gaz, en disant :

„Nous sommes enthousiasmés par cette étape majeure pour l’ETH2, et par le potentiel qu’un déploiement final de l’ETH2 représente pour l’ensemble de la communauté des cryptocurrences“.

La bourse Kraken soutiendra également la mise en place de l’ETH 2.0, annoncée le 24 novembre.

Comme pour Coinbase, plus de détails et les dates de lancement sont à venir.

L’adoption précoce par deux des principales bourses de l’industrie indique que la communauté de la cryptographie aura un nombre croissant d’options pour le jalonnement ETH 2.0 au fil du temps.

Bitcoin mining pool implements censorship on BTC transactions & why this could be the beginning of a dangerous development

The introduction of a new „censored“ Bitcoin mining pool has caused concern among some Bitcoiners. They believe that it could be a harbinger of future developments.

Will Bitcoin soon be threatened with censorship by regulatory authorities? And why should it be bad at all to exclude so-called “bad actors” from the network?

In this article we will take a closer look at the latest developments in the Bitcoin Pro mining scene and look for answers to the above questions.

Join the millions of people who have already discovered how to invest smarter by copying or being copied from the best investors in our community for a second income. Start now!

First BTC mining pool tests censorship on Bitcoin

The blockchain analysis platform BlockSeer has introduced the private beta version of a new Bitcoin mining pool (Blockseer Mining Pool), which censors transactions from blacklisted BTC wallets .

The pool will use BlockSeer’s and Walletscore’s labeling data along with other verified sources, such as the United States Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) blacklist for crypto, to identify BTC transactions that it does not want to process. The pool also requires all miners to go through Know-Your-Customer (KYC) protocols. DMG’s COO Sheldon Bennett stated:

The pool is focused on not getting transactions from known nefarious wallets that use this medium in a way that continues to tarnish the reputation of cryptocurrencies, particularly Bitcoin, in the mainstream and impede widespread adoption.

Why such developments are a ’slippery development‘

Former Monero lead developer Riccardo Spagni (@fluffypony) noted on Twitter that this could be the start of a slippery development. He speculated that bitcoin mining pools‘ transaction censorship could spread due to pressure from regulators. He indicated that this was a cause for concern. Regulators who look at this and think it is a good idea to take action ‚for extreme cases like the OFAC crypto list‘ could make censorship on Bitcoin enforceable.

Instead , Spagni suggested that more privacy on Bitcoin would prevent this, adding:

Things like p2pool & Stratum v2 make it practically unenforceable and I’d rather rely on it than on a hope & prayer.

P2pool is a decentralized bitcoin mining pool that was founded in 2011. Braiins‘ Stratum V2 draft is a complete overhaul that BetterHash implements. BetterHash is a secondary protocol that allows the constituents of the mining pool to decide on the composition of the block they will mine, rather than allowing pools to control which transactions are included in each block. This should make pool censorship impossible. According to Braiins co-founder Jan Capek, the draft has yet to be formally examined. However, he will receive grants from Square Crypto for further development.

Wallet Scrutiny website founder Leo Wandersleb commented that this „slippery development“ of censorship will lead to a soft fork where pools that follow this approach will refuse to „build on blocks that don’t use their filters“ .

The price of the Bitcoin was close to USD 14,000

The price of Bitcoin touched USD 14,000 on Tuesday when it reached USD 13,850.

A brief challenge of USD 14,000 produced high volatility for the BTC/USD, which subsequently fell by more than USD 500 in hours. Yes, this Tuesday, the price of Bitcoin touched USD 14,000, reaching exactly USD 13,850.

The Bitcoin price fell to USD 13,300 on October 28 after a new test of its 2019 resistance levels was rejected. After failing to reach USD 14,000, uncertain conditions prevailed, culminating in this brief drop.

The main crypt currency is currently quoted at USD 13,140. With a falling variation of -1.88% in the last 24 hours, according to our online crypto tool.

What about Bitcoin? Wall Street guru explained what the future of the star cryptomoney will be
Amid the sharp rise in its value, one of Wall Street’s leading experts predicted that Bitcoin will be like „digital gold“. And it won’t be used in the same way as the traditional currency for at least the next five years.

This is what billionaire investor Mike Novogratz told Bloomberg. „I don’t think Bitcoin is going to be used as a transaction currency at any time in the next five years. Said the Bitcoin bull in an interview with Bloomberg TV and Radio. „Bitcoin is being used as a store of value.

In nominal terms, Bitcoin remains a relatively small asset class. Mostly favoured by millennial investors who do not yet have as much influence on financial markets. Compared to previous generations who usually chose physical gold as a store of value.

Novogratz, who has long advocated the widespread adoption of digital currencies, believes that while Bitcoin may have more advantages, it won’t be used for daily transactions in the short term.

„Bitcoin like gold, like digital gold, will continue to rise,“ said the former hedge fund manager. „More and more people will want it as part of their portfolio. The price of Bitcoin was close to USD 14,000, up more than 14% in the last week.

More than half of US investors interested in BTC
A survey by digital asset manager Grayscale Investments suggests that investor interest in Bitcoin is on the rise. And that the leading market capitalisation-based cryptomoney is on its way to widespread adoption.

Released Tuesday, Grayscale’s „Bitcoin Investor Survey“ revealed that more than half (55%) of US investors who responded are interested in buying bitcoins (BTC) by 2020.

Compared to the previous year, the results mark a „significant increase“, the company said, with a 19% rise.

The data also showed that most bitcoin investors made allocations in the last 12 months. With 38% investing in the last four months. 26% between five and six months ago and 19% between seven and 12 months ago.

The strongest stated driver for bitcoin investments was the coronavirus pandemic, which prompted 63% of respondents to invest, the research showed.

Coinbase falls as Bitcoin nears 2019 high
Coinbase, the US crypto-currency exchange, has shut down trade due to feeding problems amidst Bitcoin’s rise to a 2019 high of around USD 13,880.

According to a company update on Wednesday, Coinbase said they were „currently investigating the problem“, although no further comments were provided.

Coinbase has suffered a number of disruptions during busy trading periods this year. Including on September 4, the last time an interruption caused trade to be difficult. According to the company’s status page.

The disruption comes at a time when Bitcoin has rapidly approached new highs not seen since 26 June 2019.

Il trucco dell’aggiornamento del portafoglio Bitcoin ha fruttato ai criminali più di $ 22 milioni

Le bande criminali inviano falsi aggiornamenti ai proprietari di portafogli Electrum, installano malware e rubano i fondi degli utenti.

Una semplice tecnica ha aiutato le bande di criminali informatici a sottrarre più di 22 milioni di dollari di fondi dagli utenti dell’app del portafoglio Electrum ; uno ZDNet inchiesta ha scoperto.

Questa particolare tecnica è stata vista per la prima volta nel dicembre 2018 . Da allora, il modello di attacco è stato riutilizzato in più campagne negli ultimi due anni

ZDNet ha rintracciato più account Bitcoin in cui i criminali hanno raccolto fondi rubati dagli attacchi che hanno effettuato nel corso del 2019 e del 2020, con alcuni attacchi avvenuti solo il mese scorso, a settembre 2020.

I rapporti delle vittime inviate ai portali di abuso di Crypto Code rivelano la stessa storia.

Gli utenti dell’app del portafoglio Bitcoin di Electrum hanno ricevuto una richiesta di aggiornamento inaspettata tramite un messaggio popup, hanno aggiornato il loro portafoglio ei fondi sono stati immediatamente rubati e inviati all’account Bitcoin di un aggressore.

Guardando in che modo i criminali informatici stanno rubando fondi, questa tecnica funziona grazie al funzionamento interno dell’app del portafoglio Electrum e della sua infrastruttura di backend.

Per elaborare qualsiasi transazione, i portafogli Electrum sono progettati per connettersi alla blockchain Bitcoin attraverso una rete di server Electrum, nota come ElectrumX

Tuttavia, mentre alcune applicazioni wallet controllano chi può gestire questi server, le cose sono diverse nell’ecosistema aperto di Electrum, dove tutti possono configurare un server gateway ElectrumX.

Dal 2018, le bande di criminali informatici hanno abusato di questa scappatoia per avviare server dannosi e attendere che gli utenti si connettano in modo casuale ai loro sistemi.

Quando ciò accade, gli aggressori chiedono al server di mostrare un popup sullo schermo dell’utente, istruendolo ad accedere a un URL e scaricare e installare un aggiornamento dell’app del portafoglio Electrum.

Market Wrap: Bitcoin Bumps tæt på $ 11,6K; Ether-optioner Åbn interessedips

Bitcoin hoppede tæt på $ 11.600, inden de trak sig lidt tilbage, mens ether-optionhandlere er mindre aktive, end de var i september.

Bitcoin (BTC) handler omkring $ 11.552 pr. 20:00 UTC (16:00 ET). Vinder 1,7% i løbet af de foregående 24 timer.
Bitcoins 24-timers rækkevidde: $ 11.186- $ 11.598

BTC er over sit 10-dages og 50-dages glidende gennemsnit, et bullish signal for markedsteknikere.

Efter en flad weekend, der så verdens ældste kryptokurrency holde sig til en stram $ 11.300 – $ 11.400 rækkevidde, hoppede Bitcoin Bank pris mandag så højt som $ 11.598, inden han afregnede til $ 11.552 pr. Pressetid.

 

I sin ugentlige investor note satte kvanthandelsfirmaet QCP Capital bitcoins tekniske support til $ 10.500, hvor ethvert punkt over var positivt for det samlede marked på grund af betalingsfirmaet Square, der købte $ 50 millioner i bitcoin. Det har været komfortabelt over dette niveau siden 2. oktober.

”Sidste uges Square købte et flot gulv i BTC lige på nøgletrendelinjen og 10.500 niveau, hvor deres gennemsnitlige købspris var $ 10.617 for 4.709 BTC,” lyder QCP-noten. „Squares køb og effektiv lobbyvirksomhed over for andre kontorskatter gennem deres hvidbog vil give folk tillid til, at en femcifret BTC-pris vil være bæredygtig.“

På den makroøkonomiske front afventer de globale aktiemarkeder spændt på yderligere økonomisk stimulering i lyset af et stigende antal coronavirus-tilfælde, sagde Rupert Douglas, chef for institutionelt salg for mægler Koine. Aktiehandlere vil have en ny stimulusrunde samt en svagere dollar, der også understøtter guld, sølv og bitcoin, tilføjede han.

Faktisk har US Dollar Index, der er et mål for en kurv af fiat-valutaer versus greenback, været flad siden 25. september, i den røde 0,01% mandag ved pressetid.

”Makroøkonomiske nyheder og markeder har for det meste været positive over hele kloden med aktier steget med 2% -3% i sidste uge,” sagde Jason Lau, administrerende direktør for kryptokursudveksling OKCoin. Han bemærkede også, at finansieringssatserne for det meste har været positive de sidste tre dage, hvilket indikerer, at forhandlere for det meste betaler for at margenen skal gå længe på bitcoin-markedet.

“Positive finansieringsrater på BTC-futuresmarkederne og de seneste store erhvervskøb, for eksempel Square, har også øget det kortsigtede bullish stemning i tråd med traditionelle markeder, der fører til årets udgang,” tilføjede Lau.
Ether-optioner åbner interesse lavere i oktober

Ether (ETH), den næststørste kryptokurrency efter markedsværdi, handlede mandag omkring $ 387 og steg 4% på 24 timer fra 20:00 UTC (16:00 ET).

Priserne sprang næsten 4% flere timer efter, at digitalvaluta asset manager Grayscale meddelte, at Ethereum Trust er blevet et Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) -rapporterende selskab. Grayscale ejes af CoinDesk’s moderselskab, Digital Currency Group

På optionsmarkedet, efter en rekord september for åben rente på derivatlokalet Deribit, er Oktobervolumen meget lavere. I løbet af de første 10 dage i september var eteroptionernes åbne rente i gennemsnit $ 425 millioner. I de første 10 dage i oktober var gennemsnittet 18% nede til 346 millioner dollars.

På trods af et for det meste bullish løb for ether i oktober, er optionshandlere mindre interesserede i at placere væddemål på Deribit, som er det største sted for etheroptioner. Vishal Shah, en optionshandler og grundlægger af derivatudveksling Alpha5, siger, at et fald i DeFi-renter i denne måned kan være synderen for åben renteinddypning. „Jeg tror, ​​uden at overanalysere det, har DeFi fizzled et touch, hvilket naturligvis har reduceret behovet for ETH-optionalitet på margenen,“ sagde han.
Andre markeder

Digitale aktiver på CoinDesk 20 er for det meste grøn mandag. Bemærkelsesværdige vindere fra 20:00 UTC (16:00 ET):

  • chainlink (LINK) + 8,4%
  • monero (XMR) + 7,2%
  • tezoer (XTZ) + 4,1%

En bemærkelsesværdig taber fra 20:00 UTC (16:00 ET):
