Lawyers for „Mr. Bitcoin“ appeal 5-year prison sentence

Alexander Vinnik is fighting back against his five-year prison sentence with legal appeals.

Defense lawyers for Alexander Vinnik, who allegedly engaged in large-scale money laundering via Bitcoin Up and was sentenced to five years in prison, are appealing the court’s ruling.

As revealed in a December 18 report by Russian news agency Kommersant, Vinnik’s lawyer Frederic Belot has now officially appealed the French court’s decision. He justifies this by saying that Vinnik was not involved in the money laundering of which he is accused.

In this regard, he refers to the December 6 verdict, which states that Vinnik was „involved in money laundering as part of an organized criminal group.“ However, Belot counters that a „criminal group“ cannot consist of only one person. Accordingly, he argues, „The court did not name another person to be part of this group.“

Rather, according to his lawyer, Vinnik was the victim of unknown „principals“ of the now-defunct crypto exchange BTC-e. His function as part of the trading platform remains unclear. Belot believes that Vinnik was „merely a full-time trader who did not intentionally launder money.“

Known as „Mr. Bitcoin,“ Vinnik is said to be the co-founder of a global crypto fraud scheme through which more than $4 billion in funds were laundered. Three years after his arrest in Greece, the verdict against Vinnik has been announced in early December 2020. Previously, the defendant had repeatedly denied his involvement in the illegal project.

US agency FinCEN seeks experts to fight crypto crime

FinCEN is looking to hire two experts to develop a strategy to combat crypto-crime.

The U.S. Treasury Department is looking to bring in cryptocurrency subject matter experts to better address the challenges of regulating the asset class.

The Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN), i.e. the department for combating financial crime, has accordingly published two job advertisements looking for experts in cryptocurrencies. First and foremost, these should bring expertise in the field of crypto-crime.

The job advertisements from December 12 advertise two full-time positions for experts who are familiar with financial crime through cryptocurrencies. They are expected to bring this expertise to „assist in the development of strategic countermeasures.“ In doing so, the new officers should be able to provide input on several specific topics, if possible.

As the law enforcement agency indicates, GS-14 and GS-13 officer positions require at least one year of experience at a similar level, in terms of service in a federal agency. According to FinCEN, the expected salary ranges from $102,663 to $157,709 per year.

FinCEN expects its new experts to be able to handle „extremely complex and sensitive assignments“ in the crypto-crime field, including, for example, advisory work for financial institutions.

With the job postings, the agency is showing that it is certainly open to feedback from the crypto industry, after the Ministry of Finance, which is its superior, recently came under criticism for a draft law that seeks to possibly „ban“ crypto wallets.

As reported in early December, the proposed bill would introduce new regulatory requirements for dealing with „self-managed“ wallets. On December 9, several members of the U.S. Parliament had subsequently spoken out against such a ban, seeing it as a threat to innovation.

Important heads of the crypto industry, such as Circle CEO Jeremy Allaire, have joined this opposition, as they see the planned law as not very effective.

Janet Yellen y la Reserva Federal continuarán empujando a Bitcoin a nuevos niveles en los próximos 5 años: CEO de Celsius Network

El mercado criptográfico puede estar acorralado por la nueva Secretaria del Tesoro, pero ella sólo va a „hundir el dólar“.

El Secretario del Tesoro de los EE.UU. Steven Mnuchin no ha sido muy bueno para las cripto-monedas. Como informamos, el Tesoro dijo en una declaración el lunes, „Hay un fuerte apoyo en todo el G7 sobre la necesidad de regular las monedas digitales“.

Los funcionarios de finanzas del G7 discutieron las respuestas al panorama evolutivo de las criptodivisas para prevenir su uso para „propósitos malignos y actividades ilícitas“, dijo el Tesoro.

El mes pasado, el director general de Coinbase, Brian Armstrong, dijo que Mnuchin está planeando „apresurarse en la adopción de una nueva regulación con respecto a las carteras criptográficas autoalojadas antes del final de su mandato“, aunque el antiguo empleador de Coinbase, Brian Brooks, el Contralor en funciones de la Moneda, dijo que no hay ningún plan para matar criptas.

Sin embargo, a Munchin no le queda mucho tiempo en su mandato con Janet Yellen elegida como nueva Secretaria del Tesoro por el presidente electo Joe Biden.

Las opiniones de Yellen sobre la criptografía no son positivas; ella ha llamado a Bitcoin Trader un „activo altamente especulativo“ en el pasado y ha expresado su preocupación por su volatilidad cuando debería haber mostrado más preocupación por la disminución del valor del dólar americano.

Sin embargo, Yellen no será bajista para el precio de Bitcoin, sino más bien lo contrario, escribió Alex Mashinsky, fundador y CEO de Celsius Network, en un artículo el lunes.

Según él, el historial de Yellen como economista y funcionario es intachable, pero su capacidad para manejar la actual crisis económica y la creciente deuda es algo de lo que hay que preocuparse.

MMT FIAT maximalistas en la Cámara

Viniendo de una larga línea de creyentes keynesianos en el MMT, Yellen aboga por crear cantidades interminables para que la economía crezca, dijo Mashinksy.

La Reserva Federal ya ha estado imprimiendo dinero como loco, con más del 20% de la oferta de dólares creada sólo en 2020.

„Joe Biden junto con Janet Yellen y J-Pow van a hundir el dólar“, dijo la analista Mati Greenspan.

Mashinksy argumenta que el MMT es una ideología peligrosa que inyecta montones de dinero en el mercado, empujando los precios de los activos hacia arriba, lo que sólo beneficia a las grandes corporaciones y a los multimillonarios.

Aunque el nombramiento de Yellen puede llevar a restricciones de Bitcoin y a regular el DeFi, pero el hecho de que Yellen y la Administración Biden necesiten asegurar que el dólar americano siga siendo la moneda de reserva, implicaría „financiar nuevos negocios y tecnologías en industrias futuras como Blockchain, Machine Learning y AI“.

Mashinsky dijo que está „atrasado“ que la Fed y el Tesoro abandonen sus viejas costumbres y empiecen a tomar ventaja de la criptografía.

„La FED y la Casa Blanca se llenarán de maximalistas keynesianos MMT FIAT en 2021. Esto garantiza que Bitcoin continúe alcanzando nuevos máximos durante el 2021-2025“, escribió.

Acre approves tax collection for cryptomoedas in cases of death and donations

A supplementary law dealing with taxes levied on transfers of inheritance and donations cites money and cryptomoedas as taxable assets.

Acre approves tax collection for cryptomoedas in cases of death and donationsNOTÍCIAS

The state government of Acre recently passed a supplementary law that categorises cryptomorphs as assets subject to tax collection. In this case, the tax may be levied in cases of inheritance transfer and/or donations in cryptomorphs.

Thus, according to Complementary Law No. 373 of December 11, 2020, donations and inheritances in cryptomonas can pay taxes ranging from 2% to 8%.

Who should tax cannot have the assets automatically blocked by the government, decides STF
In addition to cryptomorphs, the law „Tax on the Transmission of Causa Mortis and Donation of Any Goods or Rights (ITCMD)“ focuses on other types of donations such as movable and immovable property, shares on the stock exchange and even money.

Tax on Cryptomites
Acre formalised the inclusion of cryptomorphs in the „Causa Mortis and Donation of Any Goods or Rights Law“. According to the publication of the Official State Gazette on Monday (14), the tax will be levied in cases of donations and or transfer of inheritance after the death of the investor.

Representative of São Paulo suggests Law that creates tax for transactions and receipt of inheritance in Bitcoin and cryptomoedas
In this way, cryptomorphs are categorized in the complementary law as assets, alongside money, securities, shares and investments. In addition, current account balances and savings are also subject to taxation by the state government of Acre.

„For the purposes of this Supplementary Law, any Crypto Investor asset or right is understood as: money, in national or foreign currency and securities representing it, cryptomoquins, bank deposit and credit in a current account, in savings and fixed term, share or participation in a mutual fund of shares, fixed income, short term and any other financial and risk application, whatever the term and the form of guarantee“.

Exemption may occur in some cases
The passing of the „Causa Mortis and Donation of Any Goods or Duties Tax Act“ provides for income tax exemption in some cases, and may include cryptomorphic donations.

According to the approved law, the ITCMD cannot be charged when the donation and/or inheritance received is a property valued at up to R$ 250,000, whether urban or rural.

Bill creating a tax for Bitcoin advances in Brazil
Meanwhile, spoils valued at up to R$ 50,000 are also exempt from the tax levied by the state of Acre, and may include cryptomoedas even in this range of value.

„Urban or rural properties, valued at up to R$250,000, are exempt from ITCMD payment, as long as it is the only one in the shareable mount. The amount of the estate when valued at up to R$ 50 thousand“.

São Paulo also charges a tax
Just as the state of Acre did with the ITCMD tax, the state of São Paulo previously approved similar taxation in cases of inheritance and donations in cryptomoedas.

As reported by the Cointelegraph, the tax on cryptomaps in São Paulo was approved through a bill by state deputies Marta Costa (PSD – SP) and Thiago Auricchio (PL-SP).

Approved in September 2019, the tax also provides for the collection of taxes on donations and/or inheritances transferred in cryptomoedas. In the state of São Paulo, any amount received as an inheritance that is less than R$ 27 thousand is exempt from collection.

Is this Bitcoin Course Rally more sustainable than in 2017?

Is this Bitcoin Course Rally more sustainable than in 2017? How institutional investors change the market and how you can read them correctly

Once again the Bitcoin price is moving towards the all-time high of 2017. Strictly speaking, it has even exceeded this in the short term. Many analysts assume that the current Bull Run is much more sustainable than its counterpart in 2017.

In this article, I discuss how traditional investors are changing the rules of the game from the current Bitcoin price rise and what you need to look out for. Learn to read the Immediate Bitcoin indicators of the derivatives market correctly and gain important insights into the orientation of institutional investors in the market.

Bitcoin price rally to ATH is more sustainable this time

While some price correction is expected in the short term, many analysts believe that the recent Bitcoin price rally will be more sustainable in the long term than that of 2017, when the price per BTC last reached an all-time high.

What is the difference? The current market has received support from a new wave of institutional investors, mainly from North America. John Todaro, Director of Institutional Research at crypto-currency analysis firm TradeBlock, commented:

One could look at the timing of the rally, which coincided with typical US market opening hours.

He added that volumes are also higher for LMAX Digital, which is primarily targeted at institutional traders.

BTC inflows to exchanges increased strongly on Thanksgiving

According to data provider CryptoQuant, BTC’s inflow on the stock exchanges has exceeded the strong outflow since the sell-off at Thanksgiving.

Ki Yong Ju, Chief Executive Officer of CryptoQuant, believes that this on-chain metric could indicate a short-term downward trend and bring the Bitcoin price back to a level of around $16,000. Indeed, this indicator suggests that large BTC investors, so-called Bitcoin whales, appear to be active on the exchanges, which is known to increase selling pressure.

Traditional players are changing the situation

Bitcoin Whales is a good keyword. Because not so long ago, in the crypto world, we saw a number of pure crypto companies, Bitcoin miners and early investors as the „big money“ in the market. However, according to Denis Vinokourov, head of research at Digital Asset Prime Broker Bequant, the composition of market participants has increasingly changed this year and now includes a new group that the traditional financial world calls institutional investors.

Vinokourov sees ongoing capital inflows into the Grayscale Bitcoin Trust and other issuers of exchange-traded products (ETPs) as evidence that institutions in the traditional financial markets are investing money in Bitcoin.

Ein Überraschungssieger erhält $ 74.000 beim Heartland Poker Tour Main Event

HeartlandPokerTourGestern Morgen hatte Herr Raffi Der Gregorian einen Pokergewinn von insgesamt 0 $. Bevor der Tag zu Ende ging, war er stolz zu sagen, dass diese Einnahmen 74.276 USD betrugen. Er hatte das Heartland Poker Tour Turnier gewonnen, das im Agua Caliente Casino Resort Spa stattfand.

Er hat es geschafft, HPT-Champion zu werden, indem er letzte Woche ein Qualifikationsspiel mit nur 200 US-Dollar absolviert hat.

Einige sagen, es sei Glück gewesen, andere behaupten, der Sieg sei auf kluges Spiel zurückzuführen. Egal was es war, er konnte professionelle Spieler wie Michael Rocco aus Tustin gewinnen, der mit über 45.000 US-Dollar Zweiter wurde.

Der Gregorian plant, einen Teil des Geldes für andere Casumo Turniere zu lassen, ein Sparkonto zu eröffnen und einen wohlverdienten Urlaub zu machen.

Die Teilnehmer

Dies war das erste von vier Events im Rahmen der zweiten jährlichen Gold Rush-Serie, bei der die Teilnehmer um Bargeld oder Punkte von 125 bis 1.650 US-Dollar kämpfen. Der Top-Gewinner erhält Sponsoring für das Winter-HPT-Event, das in Las Vegas stattfinden soll .

Einige der Pokerprofis, die am Turnier teilnahmen, waren Stan Jablonski, der bisher an 6 Final Tables gespielt hat. Er wurde nur Neunter mit einem Gewinn von etwas mehr als 8.000 US-Dollar. Er hat jedoch noch nicht aufgegeben und den HTP-Titel im Auge behalten.

Ein weiterer bekannter Spieler war Alex Madriaga, der von Allen Cunningham eliminiert wurde . Allen hatte den größten Stapel Chips am Finaltisch des Turniers. Obwohl Herr Madriaga den Titel nicht erreicht hat, plant er dennoch, den größten Teil seines Verdienstes für Materialien für die Schule auszugeben, in der seine Frau unterrichtet. In Bezug auf Herrn Cunningham wurde er Vierter mit einem Gewinn von fast 22.000 US-Dollar, ein kleiner Betrag im Vergleich zu seinem Gesamtgewinn auf Lebenszeit von 12 Millionen US-Dollar.

Den dritten Platz belegte Chris Tolone mit knapp 31.000 US-Dollar

Ein paar Plätze weiter gewannen Ronald Segni und Bob McMillan ihr Stück vom Kuchen mit dem sechsten und fünften Platz und einem Gewinn von 14.000 und 17.000 Dollar. Bob McMillan startete den Tisch mit der geringsten Investition, nur 185 Dollar. Beide waren mit der Professionalität des Personals zufrieden und freuen sich darauf, an den anderen HPT-Turnieren teilzunehmen und es erneut zu versuchen.

Die Gastfreundschaft des Personals wurde weiter von Brent Thompson hervorgehoben, der mit $ 12,00 0 den siebten Platz belegte, indem er von Tolones Taschenkönigen eliminiert wurde.

Es ist interessant zu bemerken, dass jeder der neun Finalisten außerhalb der professionellen Pokerszene einen interessanten und vielfältigen Beruf ausübt. Brent Thompson ist Rechtsanwalt, Ronald Segni ist Generalunternehmer, Raffi Gregorian – Elektriker, Stan Jablonski – Geschäftsinhaber, Alex Madriaga – Betonunternehmer, die alle unterschiedliche Spielstile und Kenntnisse auf den Final Table des jährlichen HPT-Turniers bringen.

Das HPT-Turnier geht jetzt nach Black Hawk, Colorado, um ein von vielen erwartetes Millionen-Dollar-Preisereignis auszurichten. Das Heartland Poker Tour Main Event wird dann nach Kalifornien zurückkehren, um die anderen drei Events der Gold Rush Series auszurichten.

Winklevoss: US central bank again „advertises“ Bitcoin

With new plans for further monetary policy interventions, the US central bank is making additional advertising for Bitcoin.

The American central bank continues to unintentionally advertise Bitcoin Future, with central bank chief Jerome Powell speaking out in favor of further „money printing“.

In a tweet on November 6th, Tyler Winklevoss, co-founder of the Gemini crypto exchange, said that Powell’s latest speech was „a code to buy Bitcoin“.

Powell: Congress should approve further interference

Powell had made the corresponding statements again on November 5 at a press conference on the current economic situation and possible monetary policy measures.

He reaffirmed that the American “Federal Reserve” had not yet fully exhausted the range of its possibilities. It should be noted, however, that the US Federal Reserve, in conjunction with the country’s government, has already intervened heavily in the stock markets, injecting funds and distributing aid to the population.

„I think we will have a stronger economic recovery if we bring in a little fiscal support where it fits … Congress also thinks that makes sense,“ Reuters quoted the central bank chief as saying.

Bitcoin advocates repeatedly warn of the long-term consequences of short-term interventions in the economy by the state and central bank, which can be seen in the ever-increasing national debt in the USA and other countries.

The books of the „Fed“ showed just under 7.14 trillion on Friday. US dollars, while the national debt topped 27.2 trillion for the first time in history. US dollar has climbed.

No more BTC left?

With its monetary policy interventions, the central bank follows the theory that the economy is primarily controlled by demand, which is why financial injections are supposed to have a „stimulating“ effect. Bitcoin, meanwhile, is simply controlled by supply and demand, a mechanism that seems to be working very well in light of the current climbing game of cryptocurrency.

The crypto market leader has gained more than 15% since the beginning of the week, reaching spheres that were last reached at the end of 2017.

According to the crypto analyst PlanB and some of his colleagues, this does not come as a surprise, because according to the so-called stock-to-flow forecast model, which relates the amount of Bitcoin in circulation (stock) to the rate of increase (flow), such a price development is after the „Halving“ in May the logical consequence . Indeed, investors seem to be following that prediction.

Investors are no longer just private investors, because institutional investors are increasingly discovering the cryptocurrency for themselves. Payment service provider Square made 80% of its revenue from Bitcoin in the third quarter of 2020 .

„There is no Bitcoin to sell more“ as the Twitter users Girevik the current situation summarizing .

Bitcoin hits the second-highest monthly close of all time – but sees weaknesses

Bitcoin is trading within the long-term resistance at $ 13,800.

The monthly indicators are bullish, but there are weaknesses in the medium term

There is a possibility that BTC will move towards the mid-$ 12,000 mark before it eventually resumes its upward trend.

In October 2020, the Bitcoin price rose by 28%, narrowly missing the highest monthly close of all time of January 2018 – by less than $ 100.

Despite this spike, there are signs of developing weakness on the medium-term charts.

Bitcoins end of month

October was bullish for Bitcoin. BTC created a bullish candle and hit a high of $ 14,100 before declining slightly to close at $ 13,816.

Despite the sizeable surge, BTC is still trading within the long-term resistance area of ​​$ 13,800 created in late January 2018 and the highs of July 2019.

The technical indicators are mostly bullish as both the so-called MACD and the stochastic oscillator are rising and the latter has formed a bullish cross. However, there is some weakness in the form of a slightly bearish bias in the RSI.

The weekly timeframe shows that the price has already risen above a certain level (0.618 Fib of the overall decline) stemming from the 2017 all-time highs. The next significant resistance level is at $ 16,203 (the 0.786 Fib level of the same decline) while the next support is at $ 12,000.

The technical indicators are bullish as the RSI, MACD and Stochastic Oscillator are rising – even if the slope of the latter has straightened out, indicating a loss of strength among buyers. However, none of these indicators show a decreasing divergence.

The daily chart is showing more pronounced weakness as the daily chart’s RSI has created a significant bearish divergence within the overbought area. In addition, the MACD has generated its first lower bar, even if the signal line is well above 0.

It would therefore make sense for some kind of retracement to take place before the price finally resumes its upward movement. Should the price pull back, the next support levels would be near the $ 12,600- $ 12,100 range (the 0.382-0.5 Fib levels of the overall move higher).

Ethereum op schema om Bitcoin te overstijgen bij het vereffenen van $1 biljoen transacties dit jaar

Etherische transacties zijn zo gegroeid dat de Blockchain dit jaar misschien 1 biljoen dollar aan transacties kan vereffenen.
De bitcoin-blokketen zal naar verwachting tot $800 miljard afhandelen.
Recente informatie gedeeld door Messari, een cryptocurrency markt data aggregator, suggereert dat de Ethereum blokketen gepositioneerd is om de Bitcoin Trader te overtreffen als de allereerste publieke Blockchain om meer dan $1 biljoen aan transacties te vereffenen dit jaar. Dit is het gevolg van de toenemende ETH-activiteiten die werden gestimuleerd door de recente ophef in de decentrale financiële markt (DeFi), vooral in het derde kwartaal.

Ethereum ziet meer activiteit dan Bitcoin
Volgens de informatie is het 30-dagen voortschrijdend daggemiddelde van de Ether-blokketen meer dan het dubbele van het record van Bitcoin. Etherblockchain ziet momenteel ongeveer 7 miljard dollar per dag aan transactiegemiddelde. Terwijl de Bitcoin-blokketen een lagere transactie verwerkt op een dagelijks gemiddelde van $3 miljard. Op dit punt is de etherische keten momenteel de dominante afwikkelingslaag in de cryptocurrentmarkt.

De vooruitgang van het ethereum is zo ongelooflijk dat het waarschijnlijk de eerste publieke blokketen ooit zal worden die $1 biljoen in een jaar vereffent. pic.twitter.com/2TsU8GbPJk

– Ryan Watkins (@RyanWatkins_) 21 oktober 2020
Messari’s voorspelling is dat Ethereum tegen het einde van dit jaar meer dan 1 biljoen dollar aan transacties zal vereffenen als de huidige trend wordt aangehouden. Voor Bitcoin voorspelde de marktaggregator ook dat de Blockchain op schema ligt om tot $800 miljard aan BTC-transacties op hetzelfde moment te registreren, volgens het huidige dagelijkse transactiegemiddelde.

DeFi is voorstander van de ETH-blokketen
De lage transacties op de Bitcoin-blokketen kunnen worden toegeschreven aan het feit dat de blokketen alleen transacties verwerkt die in de cryptoklasse luiden. De transactie op het rivaliserende netwerk is echter niet volledig afkomstig uit de ETH-cryptocurrency. De meeste transacties zijn afkomstig van DeFi smart contracten, en andere gerelateerde projecten, bijvoorbeeld ERC-20 tokens en stablecoins.

Zoals Ryan Watkins van Messari heeft uitgelegd, hebben ERC-20 stablecoins zoals MakerDAO’s DAI ook bijgedragen aan de groei van de Ethereum-blokketen. De stablecoin merkte op dat de vraag en de transacties in DeFi toenamen, waardoor het aanbod tot meer dan 600 procent steeg. Daaronder valt ook Tether (USDT), de meest verhandelde stablecoin.

Ontkoppeling: Bitcoin Prijs daalt naar $10.660 als de voorraad en het goud stijgt (Market Watch)

Bitcoin vertoont tekenen van ontkoppeling met Wall Street en goud met een daling van bijna 2%. De edelmetaal- en aandelenindexen daarentegen, laten een serieuze winst zien.

Nadat het niveau van $11.000 niet meer werd teruggewonnen, werd Bitcoin afgewezen en werd het onder $10.700 gedompeld. De meeste alternatieve munten hebben de beweging van BTC naar beneden gevolgd, en de marktcap heeft sinds gisteren ongeveer $6 miljard verloren.

Bitcoin faalt op $11.000

In de afgelopen dagen heeft Bitcoin een paar pogingen gedaan om de felbegeerde $11.000-lijn uit te dagen, maar tot nu toe is dat niet gelukt. De primaire cryptocurrency piekte gisteren op $10.950 (op Binance) maar kon zijn bullish run niet volhouden.

Tijdens de volgende uren ging BTC eerst naar het zuiden naar $10.750 en daarna naar zijn intraday low van $10.660. Ondanks een lichte stijging tot ongeveer $10.700 is Bitcoin nog steeds meer dan 2% lager op een 24-uurs schaal.

Het technische perspectief geeft aan dat BTC momenteel op een ondersteuningsniveau ligt van ongeveer $10.695. Als de asset naar het noorden moet terugkeren, zou het de weerstandslijnen moeten terugwinnen op $10.730, $10.810, $10.920, en mogelijk $11.000.

Met de recente prijsdaling heeft Bitcoin tekenen van ontkoppeling met andere financiële markten laten zien. De prestaties van goud waren heel anders dan die van BTC. In plaats van een daling van de intraday, steeg het edelmetaal van $1.850 per ounce naar meer dan $1.880.

De meest prominente Wall Street aandelenindexen sloten gisteren ook de handelssessie diep in het groen. De Dow Jones Industrial Average steeg met 1,5%, de S&P 500 met 1,6% en de Nasdaq Composite met 1,87%.

Zelfs na de sluiting van Wall Street bleven de termijncontracten stijgen met enkele kleine stijgingen.

Alts in het rood

Het grootste deel van de altcoindmarkt heeft de grootste cryptocurrency gevolgd. Ethereum en Ripple zijn met ongeveer 1,5% gedaald tot respectievelijk $353 en $0,242.

Bitcoin Cash (-1,2%), Chainlink (-5%), Cardano (-2%) en Bitcoin SV (-1,3%) staan ook in het rood van de top 10. Interessant is dat BSV Crypto.com Coin (-3%) heeft overtroffen voor de 10e plaats.

De enige twee uitzonderingen komen van Binance Coin (2,5%) en Polkadot (6%). BNB blijft de aandacht trekken omdat gebruikers het op de Binance Launchpool inzetten om nieuwe penningen te kopen. Het laatste project dat is toegevoegd door het landbouwplatform van de toonaangevende cryptocentrale wordt Venus Protocol genoemd.

Verdere verliezen zijn duidelijk te zien aan de midden en onderkapse altaarstukken, en vooral aan de DeFi-georiënteerde penningen. DFI.Money leidt deze negatieve ranglijst met een daling van 14%. Uniswap (-12%), Yearn.Finance (-11%), Ren (-10%), Ocean Protocol (-10%) en Synthetix Network (-8%) volgen.

Verschillende munten zijn ook met aanzienlijke percentages in waarde gestegen. OMG Network heeft de afgelopen 24 uur het meest gewonnen – 25%. Volgens het data-analysebedrijf Santiment is de prijsstijging sterk gerelateerd aan het stijgende aantal dagelijks actieve adressen.

Andere gainers zijn Arweave (16%), ABBC Coin (13%), The Midas Touch Gold (10%) en Decentraland (8%). Desalniettemin is het totale marktplafond gedaald van meer dan $350 miljard tot $344 miljard.

A crypto community will be founded on a former cruise ship

A disused cruise liner will come back to life as an on-water and off-grid crypto community.

The ship will be renamed Satoshi and will become a haven for crypto enthusiasts and businessmen.

Ocean Builders‘ COO is a Crypto Engine entrepreneur who saw his home near Thailand seized in 2019 for illegal „sea shipping“.

The Trust Project is an international consortium of news organizations based on transparency standards

A disused cruise liner will come back to life as an off-grid floating crypto community, embracing freedom and cryptocurrency.

International waters attract all kinds of people, and the crypto community is no exception. Ocean Builders, which also builds futuristic “ marine pod communities ” (floating houses), has set its sights on a new type of house: a cruise ship.

Cruise company P&O Cruises Australia recently decommissioned the Pacific Dawn, which was later purchased by Ocean Builders. The company now plans to turn it into a cryptocurrency haven .

The ship, built in 1991, has always carried passengers with P&O Australia as well as Princess Cruises. Carnival, the parent company of P&O, is reducing its fleet due to declining demand due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

A ship named Satoshi

The ship, which is destined to become a haven for certain types of libertarian-minded businessmen, will be renamed Satoshi , the fractional unit of BTC and the nickname of the secret inventor of Bitcoin .

According to Chad Elwartowski, COO of Ocean Builders, the company will take control of the cruise ship on November 4, 2020, in the Mediterranean Sea. Ultimately, it will be anchored off the coast of Panama. Ocean Builders provides a 30-minute ferry ride from shore to ship.

It is no coincidence that the Satoshi will become the refuge of crypto-enthusiasts. Elwartowski himself is a Bitcoin businessman and has long been a proponent of “seasteading,” that is, the creation of permanent habitats on water, beyond the reach of any government claim.

These activities have not always gone smoothly. In 2019, the Elwartowski Floating Habitat, located 12 nautical miles off the coast of Thailand, was seized by the Thai government for allegedly breaking the nation’s sovereignty laws. The authorities then destroyed the home.

A crypto community by the water

Elwartowski says he wants the boat to be a refuge for nomads around the world who can’t find their place anywhere. He sees the ship as a bulwark of innovation, and said:

We are eager to establish a center of technology and innovation here in Panama. Our goal is to find a way to live sustainably on the sea and to forge new paths towards this new frontier.

Ocean Builders also plans to offer cabins as vacation rentals, as well as office and research space.

The cabins of the crypto-cruise will be auctioned from November 5. They will be treated in the same way as the apartments on land. Room prices range from $ 25,000 to $ 50,000, although it may increase with the auction. The vessel has a capacity of 2,020 people.

Since the cabins do not have kitchens, Ocean Builders plans to offer residents meal vouchers, although the safest process in the event of a pandemic is not yet clear.

Much like cruise ships, the Satoshi will include retail stores. Of course, these businesses will accept payments in Bitcoin and possibly other important cryptocurrencies.
