Deutsche Bank: Bitcoin er nu den 3. største valuta og for vigtig til at ignorere

Deutsche Bank har offentliggjort en rapport, hvori det hedder, at Bitcoin er for vigtig til at blive ignoreret, og at den nu er den tredjestørste valuta i forhold til den samlede værdi i omløb. Desuden siger banken, at regeringer og centralbanker ved, at kryptovalutaer er kommet for at blive, og at de forventes at begynde at regulere branchen i år.

Bitcoin er for vigtig til at ignorere

Deutsche Bank Research offentliggjorde i sidste uge en rapport med titlen: „Bitcoins: Kan Tinkerbell-effekten blive en selvopfyldende profeti?“ Det er tredje del af „The Future of Payments: Series 2.“ Rapportens forfatter, forskningsanalytiker Marion Laboure, Ph.D., skrev:

Bitcoin’s markedskapital på $1 billion gør det for vigtigt at ignorere. Så længe kapitalforvaltere og virksomheder fortsætter med at komme ind på markedet, kan Bitcoin-priserne fortsætte med at stige.

I skrivende stund ligger prisen på bitcoin på 57.455 dollars, og kryptovalutaens market cap er ca. 1,07 billioner dollars baseret på data fra markets.Bitcoin.com.

Rapporten diskuterer også bitcoin som en råvare, valuta og aktie. Mens det bemærkes, at „bitcoin transaktioner og omsættelighed er stadig begrænset,“ rapporten fastslår, at cryptocurrency „market cap er blandt de ti bedste, både som en valuta og som en aktie.“ Sammenligning bitcoin til fiat valutaer, rapporten detaljer:

I forhold til den samlede valuta i omløb er bitcoin den tredjestørste i verden, efter den amerikanske dollar og euroen.

„Dette skyldes hovedsageligt den store stigning i bitcoins værdi på det seneste“, fortsætter rapporten og tilføjer, at „I begyndelsen af 2019 udgjorde bitcoin ‚kun‘ 3 % af de amerikanske dollars i omløb, men i februar 2021 steg den til over 40 % af de amerikanske dollars i omløb.“

Bitcoin’s værdi vil fortsætte med at stige og falde

Den fjerdestørste valuta er ifølge Deutsche Bank Research den japanske yen efterfulgt af den indiske rupee.

Laboure hævdede, at „Bitcoin’s værdi vil fortsætte med at stige og falde afhængigt af, hvad folk mener, at den er værd.“ Hun forklarede, at „Dette kaldes nogle gange for Klokkeblomst-effekten“, som er „et anerkendt økonomisk udtryk, der fastslår, at jo mere folk tror på noget, jo mere sandsynligt er det, at det sker, baseret på Peter Pans påstand om, at Klokkeblomst eksisterer, fordi børn tror, at hun eksisterer.“

Endvidere udtalte Deutsche Bank-analytikeren:

Centralbanker og regeringer forstår, at kryptovalutaer er kommet for at blive, så de forventes at begynde at regulere kryptoaktiver sidst i år eller i begyndelsen af næste år.

Deutsche Bank-rapporten bemærker også, at centralbankerne „også fremskynder forskningen i deres egne digitale centralbankvalutaer (CBDC’er) og lancerer pilotprojekter.“

Laboure fortsatte med at diskutere fremtiden for Bitcoin. På kort sigt, sagde hun, „Bitcoin er her for at blive, og dens værdi vil forblive volatil.“

På mellemlang til lang sigt mener analytikeren, at „på grund af meget stærke netværkseffekter vil der sandsynligvis være lidt plads til at bruge kryptovalutaer som et udbredt betalingsmiddel.“ Desuden advarede hun om, at bitcoin på lang sigt „bliver nødt til at omdanne potentiale til resultater for at opretholde sit værditilbud,“ uddybede hun:

På lang sigt er det usandsynligt, at centralbankerne vil opgive deres monopoler. Og så længe regeringer og centralbanker eksisterer og har magten til at regulere penge, vil der være lidt plads til bitcoin – som betalingsmiddel – til at erstatte traditionelle valutaer.

Does Ethereum’s bull run still have to wait for Bitcoin?

Does Ethereum’s bull run still have to wait for Bitcoin?

With Bitcoin’s price dropping at the start of the week, it wasn’t hard to imagine how Ethereum’s price would react. Given the fact that the altcoin market is generally tied to Bitcoin thanks to the high correlation, ETH’s price fell by close to 30 percent since. However, for a coin to perform well on the price charts, it also requires the backing of a strong network and the confidence of its miner community.

These two factors for ETH at the moment are quite promising and allow investors to have confidence in ETH’s long-term prospects. Ethereum miners at the moment are fairly profitable. In the past week, Glassnode’s data highlighted that Ethereum Anon System transaction fees have been able to sustain over 50% share of the total block reward. This has happened only on two major occasions, the first being the ‘DeFi summer’ between August and October 2020, and throughout most of 2021.

While the price has endured a few price corrections in the past few days, data from BitInfoCharts highlights that the miner fees continue to sustain a fairly high position in comparison to the past 6-months.

In addition to this, Ethereum’s network continues to enjoy a significantly high hash rate

The average daily hash rate hit yet another ATH at 416,083.7354 GH/s and shows that strong network fundamentals continue to back Ethereum overlooking its recent price dip.

As these changes in the ETH market take place, new hodling patterns are also emerging. According to data provided by Glassnode, exchange outflow volume just reached an ATH of $46,637,330.84 and could see more ETH entering cold storage that will in turn be able to provide the coin with the much-needed bullish momentum as the selling pressure subside and accounts go back into hodl mode. However, it was also interesting to note that addresses holding 100+ coins hit an 8-month low while small addresses holding over 0.1 coins reached an ATH of 4,147,382 – signaling slight changes in the user and investor demographic of Ethereum.

While these aspects of Ethereum hint at the possibility of a recovery run materializing soon and highlight the fact that its recent price woes are symptomatic of the entire altcoin market and not just specific to ETH, the coin continues to be overshadowed by BTC’s price movements. The altcoin market for the majority of its existence has danced to Bitcoin’s tune and this doesn’t look like changing any time soon, even for assets like ETH that are likely to continue moving in BTC’s sway.

Market data from CoinMetrics highlighted the increasing correlation ETH has registered with BTC. The correlation had fallen on multiple occasions in the past months starting in October 2020. However, the narrative is soon changing with the BTC-ETH correlation going up at the time of writing and is currently at 0.664. This makes an independent bull run hard to achieve for ETH and in the coming weeks, and as the trend remains unchanged it is no surprise that ETH has hit price levels in the $1.3k vicinity. However thanks to the above-mentioned fundamentals backing ETH at the moment, the $1.3k – $1.5k range is likely to be temporary and traders can expect the coin to head towards the current ATH in the coming months.

Il Congresso teme che le criptovalute vengano utilizzate per finanziare il terrorismo interno, l’insurrezione del Campidoglio

La sottocommissione del Congresso degli Stati Uniti afferma che i metodi di segnalazione bancaria hanno portato ad arresti di attacchi al Campidoglio, ma teme che Bitcoin possa aver contribuito a finanziare l’insurrezione.

Un sottocomitato del Congresso degli Stati Uniti sta indagando se gli estremisti nazionali si stanno rivolgendo alla criptovaluta come fonte di fondi per le loro attività

Il 25 febbraio, la sottocommissione per la sicurezza nazionale, lo sviluppo internazionale e la politica monetaria terrà un’audizione dal titolo „Dollars Against Democracy: Domestic Terrorist Financing in Aftermath of Insurrection“. Un memorandum della commissione prima dell’audizione ha affermato che „con l’aumentare del controllo da parte delle banche tradizionali e delle piattaforme di pagamento, gli estremisti si stanno rivolgendo alle richieste di criptovalute“.

Il memorandum raggruppa le criptovalute con altre potenziali vie di finanziamento di attività illecite tra cui crowdfunding, enti di beneficenza e piattaforme di social media. Due incidenti principali sono usati per suggerire che le criptovalute potrebbero aver contribuito a finanziare l’insurrezione del Campidoglio.

In particolare, l’8 dicembre un estremista francese che si è suicidato ha inviato 28,15 BTC (per un valore di 522.000 dollari al momento del trasferimento) a 22 indirizzi con molti appartenenti a noti attivisti di estrema destra e personalità di Internet.

Più di $ 250.000 del BTC che ha inviato sono andati all’attivista Nick Fuentes che è stato identificato come al Campidoglio durante l’insurrezione, anche se nega espressamente di entrare nell’edificio.

L’altra fonte citata dal memorandum era un video in diretta della protesta del Campidoglio sulla piattaforma di streaming video Dlive in cui lo streamer ha ricevuto circa $ 222 in consigli di criptovaluta. Secondo il documento, la piattaforma ha pagato „centinaia di migliaia di dollari agli estremisti sin dalla sua fondazione“. La piattaforma è stata acquistata dal servizio di condivisione file peer-to-peer BitTorrent, a sua volta di proprietà della Tron Foundation .

Tuttavia il promemoria ammette che i due incidenti sono prove circostanziali e che „non è noto se i fondi di questi trasferimenti di Bitcoin o di altri siano stati utilizzati nella pianificazione e nell’esecuzione del raduno di Trump del 6 gennaio o dell’insurrezione del Campidoglio che ne è seguita“.

Il comitato ritiene che mentre la finanza tradizionale aumenta la segnalazione di attività sospette, è probabile che i futuri insurrezionalisti ricorrano a metodi non tradizionali per finanziare le loro attività. Ha aggiunto che „alcuni degli arresti relativi all’attacco del 6 gennaio“ hanno avuto successo grazie ai metodi di segnalazione utilizzati dalle banche e da altri istituti finanziari regolamentati.

C’è ancora un significativo respingimento alla narrativa „la criptovaluta è il paradiso dei criminali“

L’influencer di Bitcoin Pierre Rochard ha risposto su Twitter al memo dicendo che „quasi tutto il terrorismo interno è avvenuto prima dell’invenzione di Bitcoin. Il terrorismo interno è finanziato da USD „.

L’investitore di criptovaluta che si chiama „The Crypto Monk“ ha affermato che anche le carte Pokemon sarebbero migliori per il pagamento rispetto a Bitcoin a causa della capacità della criptovaluta di rintracciare i fondi.

Swiss crypto broker Bitcoin Suisse is now half a unicorn

The crypto boom of 2020 brought the Swiss crypto broker high profits and a sharp increase in its own company valuation.

As part of the latest Bitcoin rally, the Swiss crypto broker Bitcoin Billionaire review has significantly increased its own company valuation and almost achieved the status of a so-called half unicorn. This emerges from a letter published on February 3 to the shareholders .

Bitcoin boom is fueling business

As can be found in it, Bitcoin Suisse was able to almost double the trading volume and number of orders in the last quarter of 2020. The turnover from its own trading business with Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies even rose by almost 80 percent. Bitcoin Suisse expects net profit for the full year to be in the double-digit million range in Swiss francs.

In total, Bitcoin Suisse manages crypto assets for its customers with a value of 2.5 billion francs (2.3 billion euros). Based on the latest investments by new investors in Bitcoin Suisse, the company’s valuation is now around 400 million US dollars, almost half the amount at which a startup is referred to as a so-called unicorn.

Banking license is getting closer

As Bitcoin Suisse announced in November , the goal of obtaining a banking license for the crypto broker has the highest priority. As stated in the letter to the shareholders, the company will make additional resources available to create the infrastructure and processes required to obtain the license. It is expected that the banking license will be obtained in the coming months.

Arxnovum requests a Bitcoin ETF from Canadian securities regulators

Winklevoss‘ Gemini Trust will act as a sub-holder for Arxnovum’s new Bitcoin ETF in Canada.

Canadian mutual fund administrator Arxnovum Investments has issued a prospectus for a new Bitcoin Exchange Traded Fund (BTC), or ETF, in Canada.

On January 11, the company filed a set of preliminary documents for Arxnovum’s Bitcoin ETF with the Ontario Securities Commission of Canada.

CNBC: Winklevoss twin ETF rejected by the SEC
According to a preliminary long-format prospectus, Arxnovum plans to list its new Bitcoin ETF on the Toronto Stock Exchange. The listing is subject to TSX approval in accordance with its original listing requirements. „The TSX has not conditionally Cryptosoft approved the Bitcoin ETF listing application and there is no guarantee that the TSX will approve the listing application,“ said Arxnovum.

The company said that Arxnovum’s Bitcoin ETF units will trade on the TSX against the US dollar. The ETF will include contracts for Bitcoin and/or Bitcoin futures and/or other derivative instruments. The new Bitcoin ETF may also hold cash, cash equivalents and/or other fixed income securities, the company said.

Canada’s first Bitcoin public fund reaches $100 million mark
According to the prospectus, Arxnovum Bitcoin’s ETF will be backed by the cryptomanic custodian and exchange company Gemini, which will act as a sub-depository for assets held outside Canada:

„Gemini Trust Company is the sub-custodian of the bitcoin held by the Bitcoin ETF. The Sub-Custodian is a trust company licensed by the New York State Department of Financial Services and is qualified to act as a sub-custodian of Bitcoin’s ETF for assets held outside of Canada in accordance with NI 81-102“.

The first public Bitcoin fund listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange is now on air
Arxnovum’s CEO, Shaun Cumby, previously held a senior position at 3iq, a company listed on Canada’s first public Bitcoin fund in 2020. As reported by Cointelegraph previously, Gemini was also providing crypto custody services for 3iq’s QBTC.U fund.

A Bitcoin ETF has been one of the most anticipated events in the crypto community in recent years. In 2018, the US Securities and Exchange Commission rejected the Winklevoss‘ second application for a Bitcoin ETF.

According to a January report from JPMorgan, the launch of a Bitcoin ETF could affect the price of Bitcoin. On January 13, Cointelegraph reported that VanEck, the first company to apply for a Bitcoin ETF, now faces a lawsuit from its former partner SolidX.

Bitcoin, cryptomoney and tokens: a taxonomy of the new economy

Don’t mix tea towels and napkins – 2 years ago, I proposed my attempt to develop a typology of tokens to better define and understand digital assets.

Since then, water has flowed under the bridge. Shitcoins have collapsed, exchanges have been hacked and others have taken their respective place in the crypto ecosystem. As the crypto-actives market has strongly changed, I propose a new classification of digital assets.

The Token Classification Framework

Since the emergence of Bitcoin Code and the crypto-actives that followed, the term most commonly used to refer to them has been „crypto-currencies“. Among them, Bitcoin is the asset that has received the most attention.

Cryptomoney, crypto-actives, tokens or securities?

Bitcoin is a cryptomony strictly speaking, but not all digital assets fall into this category. Most of them are tokens. Semantically speaking, the most appropriate term to define this new class of assets would be „crypto-actives“ – or crypto-assets. This pitfall is quite common in innovative fields. However, the lack of terminology and clear definitions prevents a nuanced discourse and relevant analyses. In order to understand and explain all the nuances of this ecosystem, we need to dissect and classify it.

The same properties and use cases can be found in many assets of the crypto ecosystem. These similarities have been used to establish a classification of digital assets. However, no typology has yet been established and used by all the actors of the crypto ecosystem. Financial regulators, institutional players, traders and researchers each have a different point of view on the issue.

The classification of digital assets only caught the authors‘ attention after the wave of ICOs in 2017. Since then, several works on the classification of numerical assets have been undertaken and, in my opinion, the most successful is Thomas Euler’s Token Classification Framework.

A model adapted to a protean asset class

This multidimensional model forms a decision tree for mapping digital assets according to their characteristics. The first step in this classification was to establish five dimensions for the tokens: purpose, utility, legal status, underlying value and technical layer.

The purpose of the asset. What is the purpose of the asset, is it simply a means of exchange or is it necessary for the operation of a network?
The utility of the asset. Does the asset provide access to a service, participate in a network, or has no particular utility?
The legal status of the asset. How will the asset be treated in different jurisdictions, as a mere crypto asset or as a financial security?
The value of the asset. Does the asset have an underlying value because it is backed by an asset or is it a financial security?

The technical layer. Is the asset native to its own blockchain or is it implemented on another blockchain such as Ethereum?

Then, in each of these dimensions, a given asset can correspond to one of the 3 sub-dimensions. However, some assets, because of their unique characteristics, may correspond to several sub-dimensions. This is the beauty of cryptopheresis: assets with unique characteristics offering innovative use cases. Note that some assets may also not have one of the dimensions of the model!

La dominanza Bitcoin raggiunge il picco di un anno come XRP Faces Nuova causa

Cointelegraph Markets ha rivelato che le classifiche di dominanza Bitcoin sono salite del 69%.

Il dominio dei bitcoin nello spazio criptato ha raggiunto un picco, poiché la principale risorsa digitale ha toccato di nuovo per breve tempo i 24.000 dollari. Il prezzo del Bitcoin ha raggiunto un nuovo massimo storico a 24.000 dollari il 19 dicembre. Anche se BTC ha visto una forte volatilità mentre il suo prezzo è sceso a 22.800 dollari, è ancora in rialzo dell’1,23% a 23.633,39 dollari.

In un video postato su Twitter, l’analista di Cointelegraph Markets Michael van de Poppe ha dichiarato:

„Storicamente, abbiamo fatto una struttura al top in dicembre, dopo di che abbiamo avuto un primo trimestre meraviglioso per gli altcoins“.

Il tweet di Cointelegraph Markets ha rivelato che il grafico di dominanza dei Bitcoin è salito del 69% in mezzo al selloff XRP.

Mentre la Bitcoin continua a salire, l’XRP sta avendo difficoltà con le autorità di regolamentazione. In un recente deposito, la Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) statunitense ha accusato Ripple e due dei suoi dirigenti di essersi assicurati più di 1,3 miliardi di dollari in una „offerta di titoli digitali non registrati in corso“. I due dirigenti di Ripple menzionati nel deposito della SEC sono l’amministratore delegato Brad Garlinghouse e il co-fondatore Christian Larsen. A seguito del deposito, gli analisti temono che la causa della SEC possa influenzare il trading XRP.

L’XRP sta già registrando delle perdite. Al momento della stampa, l’XRP è sceso del 31,59% a 0,321332 dollari.

A differenza di Bitcoin, anche altri altcoin di alto livello stanno registrando cali giornalieri. L’Etere (ETH) è attualmente in calo del 2,56% a 610,71 dollari. Inoltre, Tether è in calo dello 0,06%, e Bitcoin Cash (BCH) ha perso $221%.

Bitcoin of paper? Trader finds R$ 2 note with cryptomeda symbol and QR Code

A snack bar attendant in a city in Rio de Janeiro state was surprised with the Bitcoin symbol on a R$ 2 bill.

A stamp with the Bitcoin symbol was found this Tuesday (15) in a US$ 1 bill in Brazil. Besides BTC, the note brings a QR Code figure, which Brazilian trader Gabriel da Silva Fonseca couldn’t scan through the cell phone.

Attendant in a snack bar in São João do Meriti, located in Rio de Janeiro, the trader was surprised by the note with Bitcoin stamp while working. He found the note on the company’s cash register and doesn’t know the origin of the Bitcoin stamped symbol.

As soon as he found the $ 2 note, Gabriel thought about scanning the QR Code, in search of information about who stamped the bill left in the establishment. However, after six attempts he gave up scanning the code, which appears illegible on the photo of the banknote with the Bitcoin stamp.

R$ 2 bill with Bitcoin

A $ 2 note with the Bitcoin symbol was found in the interior of Rio de Janeiro, provoking curiosity on the trader who found the bill. Besides the BTC symbol, the note has a QR Code and a phrase of cryptomoeda’s praise.

According to the photo shared by Gabriel in a Facebook group, a red stamp was used to ‚give life‘ to the Bitcoin symbol, which calls the attention on the R$ 2 bill.

Trader found note with Bitcoin in São João do Meriti – RJ (Reproduction/Facebook)

Besides the iconic symbol that refers to Bitcoin, a QR Code appears on the right side of the letter. According to the stamp, „Bitcoin is better“ than the Brazilian real. In an interview to Cointelegraph, the trader who found the note said that it was the first time he saw something like this.

„It’s the first note I find like this. I found it in the cash register of my work“.

QR Code next to cryptomeda

The R$ 2 note found with the Bitcoin symbol seeks to divulge the adoption of cryptomoedas in Brazil through a stamp. However, what aroused the curiosity of the trader who found the money was the QR Code divulged next to the cryptomoeda symbol.

Although it’s illegible, the code could offer more information about the responsible for the stamp on the banknote. Even free cryptomoeda could be found with the QR Code that appears on the R$ 2 bill.

According to trader Gabriel da Silva, as soon as he found the R$2 bill he tried to scan the QR Code, but was unsuccessful. The image of the code is blurred, and can’t be read by an application.

„My heart beat faster and I immediately pulled the camera from my cell phone to read the QR Code. I tried it about six times, but it was so worn out that I couldn’t identify it“.

Trader will keep the ballot

Gabriel found the R$ 2 bill with the Bitcoin symbol by chance, at the snack bar he works in São João do Meriti – RJ. After not being able to read the code, the trader says that he left the note on the cash register of the work.

„I left it back at the cashier, but soon it will be time for me to go and I will check if it is there if it is, I’ll leave another note in place and pick it up for me“.

However, when Gabriel returned to work this Wednesday (16), he found the bill still on the cash register, and decided then to keep the note of $ 2. As much as it can still be used in commerce, Brazil considers it a crime to tear and or write in bills.

„Págueme en Bitcoin“: La estrella de la NFL Russell Okung cubre parte de su sueldo de 13 millones de dólares a Crypto

Una letanía de artículos salieron ayer sugiriendo que la estrella de la NFL Russell Okung fue el primer jugador al que se le pagó en bitcoin.

Mientras que esa lede no es exactamente cierta (Okung está convirtiendo sus dólares a BTC después de que se le pague en dólares), habla de un punto más amplio sobre la creciente adopción de Bitcoin con las masas.

Okung ha estado presionando a la NFL para que le paguen en bitcoin desde 2019, donde proclamó públicamente su petición en Twitter. Pero el titular de ayer sobre que se le pague en Bitcoin no es del todo cierto, según The Verge. La NFL le dijo al medio que „no era exacto“ y que „su gente está convirtiendo parte del dinero en bitcoin“. El equipo de Okung, los Panthers de Carolina, también confirmó que le pagaban en dólares.

La afirmación de Okung en Twitter de que le „pagaban en bitcoin“ parece haber sido un empujón para una compañía llamada „Zap“ que le permite convertir cualquier porcentaje de su sueldo en bitcoin. Tal vez un trato con Zap es el motivo por el cual Okung Tweeted 14 veces el martes sobre la conversión de su sueldo a bitcoin, especuló The Verge.

Independientemente de si hay un acuerdo con Zap o no, es probable que sea de interés para Okung llamar la atención sobre el BTC – después de todo, cuanta más gente adopte el BTC, más alto será el precio. Después de todo, cuando buscas ofertas, despertar el entusiasmo en los medios sociales es una forma de hacerlo. Tal vez eso fue lo que llevó a los no del todo precisos titulares sobre Okung siendo pagado en BTC el martes:

Para generar ese tipo de emoción, ayuda tener titulares como „Primer jugador de la NFL pagado en Bitcoin“ difundidos por la web. Ciertamente suena más intrigante que „Jugador de la NFL decide gastar el 50 por ciento de su salario en Bitcoin“, ¿verdad? Será interesante ver si alguno de esos titulares cambia de la noche a la mañana.

Se dice que Okung ha convertido la mitad de su salario de 13 millones de dólares de la NFL en Bitcoin.

Independientemente de su motivación, es una prueba innegable de que la adopción de BTC continúa avanzando en una dirección positiva. Y no lo duden, Okung no es un simple cómplice de BTC, su Twitter dice que está mucho más „despierto“ que el jugador promedio de la NFL.

INDIKATOR FÖRESLÅR BITCOIN ÄR ÖVERBOKAD; 13 300 USD KAN VARA NÄRMANDE

  • Bitcoin kämpar för närvarande för att hålla över sin avgörande supportnivå på 16 000
  • USD, eftersom köpare och säljare båda kämpar för kontroll av sin korta prisåtgärd
  • Där det trender nästa kommer sannolikt till stor del att bero på den fortsatta reaktionen på denna nivå, eftersom en varaktig nedgång under den kan slå ett allvarligt slag mot dess tekniska utsikter
  • En näringsidkare noterar att en teknisk indikator antyder att Bitcoin är överköpt just nu

Samma indikator visar att en flyttning till $ 13,300 kan vara överhängande, eftersom det här är nästa viktiga supportnivå för kryptovalutan – enligt dess Ichimoku Cloud
Bitcoin System och den samlade kryptovalutamarknaden har kämpat för att behålla sin fart under de senaste 12 timmarna.

Försäljningstrycket över $ 16 000 har inte varit för intensivt, men tjurarnas avtagande styrka har fått det att sjunka under denna nivå.

Köpare försöker med glädje att vända detta nedåtgående momentum och hålla det över denna viktiga nivå, men det verkar som om nackdelen kan vara överhängande.

En näringsidkare förklarade i en nyligen tweet att kryptovalutan verkar vara överköpt just nu, med sitt Ichimoku Cloud-stöd som för närvarande ligger på drygt 13 000 dollar. Detta kan innebära att en nedgång till denna nivå är överhängande.

BITCOIN-STRIDAR FÖR ATT SÄLJA 16 000 USD SOM SÄLJER TRYCKBERG

I skrivande stund handlas Bitcoin med drygt 2% till sitt nuvarande pris på $ 16.000. Stödet här har hållits under hela morgonen, men det verkar som om ett avbrott under det kan uppstå när som helst.

Var det trender på kort sikt beror till stor del på om det kan fortsätta att hålla denna avgörande nivå.

Om det dyker under det kan BTC se ett inflöde av försäljningstryck som hjälper till att markera $ 16 500 som en lokal höjdpunkt.

INDIKATOR FÖRESLÅR BTC KUNNE SE YTTERARE FÖRLUST

Medan han delade sina tankar om kryptovalutan, noterade en näringsidkare att den visar tecken på att vara överköpt, med sitt Ichimoku Cloud-stöd som för närvarande sitter runt 13 300 dollar.

Detta kan innebära att en minskning av likviditeten i denna prisregion är nära förestående på kort sikt.

„1D BTC … mycket tidigt på detta men TK C-klämma börjar bildas (överköpta förhållanden), Kijun on Cloud på 13,3k.“

Där Bitcoin-trender de närmaste dagarna borde ge en viss inblick i om detta är en giltig möjlighet, eftersom en långvarig paus under $ 16 000 skulle vara en dyster utveckling.
