A criptografia está se tornando pública

A criptografia está se tornando pública: O tempo é fundamental para que a Bakkt garanta a listagem na NYSE

Enquanto a Bakkt se prepara para ser listada na NYSE, ainda mais empresas criptográficas poderão se tornar públicas no futuro.

Mercado de ativos digitais A Bakkt está pronta para se tornar pública na Bolsa de Valores de Nova York em 2021, o que poderia abrir caminho para que mais fornecedores de serviços de moeda criptográfica seguissem o exemplo. A Bolsa Intercontinental anunciou em 11 de janeiro que seu mercado de moedas criptográficas Bakkt logo seria listado na Bolsa de Valores da NYSE. Isto será feito através de uma fusão com uma empresa de aquisição de propósito especial VPC Impact Acquisition Holdings.

A empresa shell será utilizada para se fundir com a Bakkt a fim de ser listada no mercado de ações sem ter que realizar uma oferta pública inicial. Os relatórios iniciais sugerem que a Bakkt será avaliada em mais de US$2 bilhões após a fusão, e a bolsa pretende levantar mais US$532 milhões para financiar o desenvolvimento Crypto Genius contínuo de sua aplicação, uma carteira e um aplicativo de recompensas destinado aos usuários de varejo, que deverá ser lançado em março.

A empresa indicou que a fusão deverá ser concluída no segundo trimestre de 2021. Isto então verá a recém-formada Bakkt Holdings Inc. listada na NYSE.

Muito foi feito sobre a apresentação do investidor que foi submetida à Comissão de Valores Mobiliários e Câmbio dos EUA. O documento delineia o potencial para que o mercado de moedas criptográficas seja avaliado em US$ 3 bilhões até 2025, sustentando o valor potencial do espaço nos próximos anos. A capitalização total do mercado de moedas criptográficas ultrapassou US$ 1 trilhão pela primeira vez em janeiro de 2021.

Gavin Michael, CEO da Bakkt, disse à Cointelegraph que a fusão faz sentido, dada a quantidade de capital que já fluiu para o espaço de moeda criptográfica e o crescimento potencial que ela prevê para os próximos três anos:

„Bakkt e VPC acreditam que existe um enorme potencial na construção de um mercado para os quase US$ 2T de ativos digitais que existem hoje e os muitos outros que serão criados porque um mercado como este existe tanto para marcas quanto para consumidores“.

Michael acrescentou que a fusão dará à Bakkt acesso ao capital necessário para expandir e proporcionar mais oportunidades aos consumidores para desbloquear trilhões de dólares detidos em vários ativos digitais. A empresa também espera se beneficiar com o reconhecimento da marca que virá de se tornar uma empresa de capital aberto.
Um sinal do que está por vir?

Mati Greenspan, analista criptográfico e fundador da empresa de consultoria Quantum Economics, disse à Cointelegraph que o momento da fusão e a decisão da Bakkt de se tornar pública não é surpreendente, uma vez que os mercados de moedas criptográficas estão atualmente em franca expansão.

Notando que a mudança será sem dúvida lucrativa para a Bakkt, Greenspan também concordou que o empurrão para ir a público é uma indicação de que o setor financeiro tradicional está começando a reconhecer a moeda criptográfica e os negócios focados na cadeia de bloqueios como maduros e valiosos: „É um reflexo de onde essas empresas estão em seu ciclo de vida e como coincide com a prontidão do mercado tradicional para aceitá-las“.

Enquanto alguns grandes investidores institucionais como a MicroStrategy fizeram ondas em todo o setor com suas compras de bilhões de dólares de Bitcoin (BTC) nos últimos meses, Greenspan destacou a eficácia de diversificar o investimento no espaço. Embora manter moedas criptográficas seja uma forma direta de ganhar exposição ao ecossistema, Greenspan disse que investir nas empresas certas poderia ser potencialmente mais benéfico:

„Há um apetite natural para que todos os investidores sejam tão diversos quanto possível“. Assim como alguém cuja carteira consiste de ouro também investiria em ações de mineração ou um magnata do petróleo investiria dentro de sua própria indústria“. Muitas vezes, investir diretamente em uma empresa pode ser mais lucrativo do que comprar uma ficha cujo valor pode ser desconhecido“.

Joel Edgerton, diretor de operações da empresa americana de câmbio de moedas criptográficas bitFlyer, disse à Cointelegraph que o momento da oferta pública inicial era oportuno, dados os altos níveis atuais do mercado e um forte interesse em moedas criptográficas. Ele também ofereceu uma postura alternativa sobre as razões por trás do aumento contínuo, sugerindo que pequenos investidores e empresas independentes estão impulsionando o boom da moeda criptográfica: „A Coinbase e a Bakkt estão aproveitando a janela de IPO para permitir a seus investidores um evento de saída e usar a publicidade subseqüente de seus movimentos iniciais para fortalecer suas marcas“.

Edgerton também acredita na propensão de investidores inteligentes para financiar empresas envolvidas no espaço de moedas criptográficas sem realmente comprar BTC ou outras altcoins. A falta de opções para ganhar exposição generalizada à moeda criptográfica também tem um papel importante:

„Há um apetite definido para que os investidores ganhem exposição ao espaço de moeda criptográfica investindo em empresas criptográficas, enquanto não detêm diretamente ativos de moeda criptográfica. […] Comprar ações e lucrar indiretamente com o crescimento da indústria é definitivamente atraente. Como ainda não há ETF de fácil aquisição ou fundo mútuo para criptografia, então as empresas criptográficas tornam-se um investimento em moeda criptográfica proxy“.

Ben Caselin, chefe de pesquisa e estratégia da AAX de troca de ativos digitais, disse à Cointelegraph que a mudança da Bakkt não reflete necessariamente o reconhecimento da indústria financeira em geral. Em contraste com os sentimentos de Greenspan e Edgerton, Caselin também destacou o fato de que os acionistas da Bakkt, quando finalmente for negociada publicamente, estarão apostando no pressuposto de que a troca será bem sucedida no futuro. Embora isto esteja intrinsecamente ligado aos mercados de moedas criptográficas, a Caselin traça uma linha clara entre investir diretamente em moedas criptográficas e trocas:

„É importante entender que investir em uma bolsa de moedas criptográficas não é um substituto para manter ativos digitais reais ou negociar futuros. É, em princípio, uma forma de ganhar exposição para a indústria mais ampla, mas mais especificamente, a posse de Coinbase ou ações na Bakkt repousa na suposição de que esta troca em particular será bem sucedida nos próximos anos“.

IPO’s e mega negócios

Gente como a Bakkt e a Coinbase parecem ter ganhado um avanço na corrida para ter acesso a financiamento público e publicidade à medida que buscam desenvolver suas ofertas atuais. Apesar de Bitcoin ter atingido novos máximos em ocasiões distintas nas últimas semanas, Edgerton acredita que o espaço ainda está em sua juventude, e o investimento do público em geral se tornará um fator-chave para o crescimento na próxima década: „As IPOs são obviamente uma importante fonte de financiamento, e uma IPO bem sucedida deve também encorajar os VCs a investir no próximo grande unicórnio criptográfico“.

Ethereum (ETH) price: history of its movements

The first Ethereum rally took place between August 2015 and June 2016.

The second rally took place from June 2016 to December 2017.

The historic high of ETH is at $ 1,594

Ethereum (ETH) has grown significantly since March 2020. Unlike Bitcoin (BTC), however, it still has to surpass its all-time high (ATH) of $ 1,594, which it reached in January 2018.

In this article, we’ll compare the previous market cycles for Immediate Edge, and see how they can approximate the current upward movement.

The first major rally for ETH took place from August 2015 to June 2016. During this period, the price of ETH went from a low of $ 0.50 to a high of $ 21.49 , which represents an increase of 4,200%. This movement took place over a period of 308 days (shown in green below).

This movement was followed by a 72% drop in 175 days (shown in red), which led to a low of $ 5.92 in December 2016. Nonetheless, this new low still measured an increase of around 1,200% compared to August 2015 prices. This is also a higher low compared to August 2015 prices.

This period marked the first major market cycle for ETH. It also provided its first all-time high which, interestingly, has not been retested since.

ETH’s next significant rally started after the aforementioned low in December 2016. The rally was slightly longer, but with an even higher growth rate.

In 399 days (green), ETH rose 26.840%, reaching a price of $ 1,594 in January 2018. This is its all-time high, which is still valid today

This rally was also different from the previous one as it featured a 140 day period during which the price consolidated before heading for the high of $ 1,594. It is therefore possible to divide this period into two rallies, one which led to the peak of 405 dollars in June 2017 and the other which led to 1,594 dollars.

In all cases, there followed a period of massive correction (in red). ETH fell 95% in 336 days, reaching a low of $ 80.56 in December 2018.

As a result, the second rally represented an even higher rate of increase, but also a stronger and larger correction thereafter.

De ontwikkelaarsactiviteit van Ethereum overstijgt die van Bitcoin in 2020: rapport

Bitcoin is niet langer het nummer één netwerk met een bijenkorf van ontwikkelaarsactiviteit. Ethereum heeft die mantel gepakt.

Dat blijkt uit een rapport van Crypto Bull, een durfkapitaalbedrijf. Het artikel is geschreven door Maria Shen, een partner bij het bedrijf. Volgens dit rapport voegen elke maand meer dan 300 ontwikkelaars zich bij het Ethereum-netwerk en deze toestroom betekent dat veel nieuwe ontwikkelaars zich meer aangetrokken voelen tot het Ethereum-netwerk in tegenstelling tot Bitcoin en andere platforms.

De tweede plaats is misleidend

Ten eerste is het opmerkelijk dat Ethereum bleef groeien en uitbreiden tijdens de recente Crypto Winter, en het einde van die moeilijke tijd culmineerde in een serieuze prijsstijging voor de crypto. Sommige mensen zijn van mening dat het Bitcoin-netwerk actiever is dan enig ander crypto-netwerk. Volgens Electric Capital is die theorie onjuist.

De essentie van het rapport was om de resultaten te beoordelen na het volgen van verschillende op blockchain gebaseerde crypto-ecosystemen. Een ontwikkelaar wordt geacht actief bij te dragen aan de ontwikkeling van een blockchain-netwerk, zolang ze aan iets gerelateerds werken. Volgens deze statistiek is het Ethereum-netwerk meer dan 4 keer actiever dan het Bitcoin-netwerk. Als zodanig is het misleidend om Ethereum op de tweede plaats te plaatsen na Bitcoin.

DeFi wordt sterk

Een sleutelfactor die enorm heeft bijgedragen aan de toegenomen activiteit op het Ethereum-netwerk is de verspreiding van verschillende DeFi-projecten. Ethereum is gastheer voor talloze cryptoprojecten en veel ontwikkelaars zetten DeFi-platforms op om op de keten te draaien.

Naarmate DeFi populairder wordt, migreren meer mensen naar Ethereum om te profiteren van de bloeiende financiële kansen die DeFi biedt. Aan de andere kant is Bitcoin niet op een significant niveau in verband gebracht met DeFi.

Er is groei over de hele linie

Ethereum en Bitcoin zijn niet de enige cryptonetwerken die een groei hebben doorgemaakt, vooral de afgelopen maanden. De hele cryptomarkt bruist momenteel van de activiteit, aangezien velen zich schrap zetten voor de mogelijke uitbraak van megastieren die naar verwachting de piek van eind 2017 zal overtreffen.

Developers 1inch will run Mooniswap and Pathfinder algorithms on the NEAR blockchain.

The 1inch decentralized exchange liquidity aggregator has entered into a partnership with the NEAR project. The agreement calls for the deployment of Mooniswap automatic market maker (AMM) algorithms in this network in 2021 and the search for the best swap opportunities for Pathfinder tokens. This was reported to ForkLog by 1inch representatives.

Mooniswap liquidity pools in the NEAR and Ethereum networks will be independent of each other. Users will be able to use the NEAR Rainbow Bridge to transfer Ethereum tokens to the new blockhouse.

NEAR is a Proof-Of-Stake-based smart contract platform. The system uses an innovative consensus mechanism called Nightshade with the implementation of sharding, through which there are no limits on network bandwidth in theory. The NEAR protocol has a single environment common to all decentralised applications, similar to the current Bitcoin Up architecture.

„The existing NEAR scaling technology will allow the team to experiment with sharding and be ready for Ethereum 2.0,“ said co-founder and CEO of 1inch Sergei Kunz in a press release.

Mooniswap has reduced its profit margins for arbitrators by introducing a five-minute time delay in pricing. Thanks to this approach, the market maker forces them to make transactions at less favourable prices. This adds value to liquidity providers. The arbitrators receive only part of the slippage, while the other part is redirected to the general pool of liquidity providers.

In 1inch, they believe that Mooniswap brings liquidity providers 50-200% more revenue than Uniswap v2.

Messari analysts have suggested that 2021 will be the year of the „platform war“ due to the emergence of DeFi eco-systems in blockades competing with Ethereum.

The launch of the main network NEAR Protocol took place in October 2020.

Earlier Vitaly Buterin, the creator of the second most capitalised crypt currency, expressed his fears that NEAR could pose a serious threat to his creation.

The launch of Ethereum 2.0 will take place on 1 December. By 24 November, users had contributed the required 524,288 ETH to the deposit contract.

Coinbase Temporarily Shut Down (Again) Due to XRP Rise

On November 24, the price of XRP jumped to over $ 0.90, before falling rapidly by about 30%.

This course was only seen on Coinbase and as a result of the madness its website temporarily went down.

XRP is benefiting from an extended price rally, but still falls short of its previous all-time highs

The price of Ripple’s XRP token, currently the third-largest cryptocurrency in the world by market cap, climbed to $ 0.90 today, only to fall rapidly by 30%.

This was apparently motivated by Bitcoin Code users as the price of XRP has not reached the same levels on other exchanges. Bitfinex, Bitstamp, and Kraken, for example, recorded numbers as low as $ 0.80 during the same period.

In light of this, some believe the market has reached a stage in the bull run where prices are starting to diverge on different exchanges – a phenomenon that can often be attributed to liquidity issues.

Shortly after the peak and the mini-crash that followed, “Coinbase” started trending on Twitter in the United States. As in the past, the surge in activity appears to have crushed Coinbase’s website.

This is not without precedent and seems to have happened again despite CEO Brian Armstrong’s statements about the preparation. “We are working hard to add additional capacity (both at the server and customer support level) to cope with the increased traffic,” he tweeted on November 18.

Target previous summits

As previously reported by BeInCrypto, XRP had a historically good week, climbing 100% in seven days, including a 40% increase from $ 0.32 to $ 0.45 in just 24 hours between November 21 and 22. .

According to Forbes , the latest rally was primarily driven by the news that the company behind XRP, Ripple, which owns around 60% of the tokens, said it was looking to capitalize on a central bank rush to digitize its currencies. .

Despite its current rise, XRP is still down around 80% from its 2018 high.

DeFi are here to stay, despite signs of bubble,‘ says Binance CEO

Cryptomoints like Bitcoin are the best form of money, says Binance’s CEO.

DeFi are here to stay, despite signs of a bubble,‘ says BinanceNOTÍCIAS CEO
Changpeng Zhao, the CEO of the world’s largest crypto exchange, Binance, said decentralised finance is here to stay, although many DeFi projects show signs of being in a bubble.

Binance offers cashback to Brazilian clients who deposit in reais on the platform
In a November 17 interview with the Russian news agency RBC, Zhao argued that „many DeFi projects are already in a bubble, and I also believe there are some signs of a bubble in the DeFi industry, but that does not mean that DeFi will eventually disappear completely. ”

Zhao went on to say that the DeFi industry has much potential Bitcoin Profit for growth, noting that DeFi still remains popular amid a continued boom in Bitcoin (BTC). He also stressed that initial currency offerings, or ICOs, were called bubbles in 2017, but a number of projects born in ICOs – including Binance – are still going very well:

„Companies create new tokens and issue them as rewards. This is not a long story. But I think DeFi is here to stay. Even now, with Bitcoin’s popularity growing again, DeFi is still popular. We think there is a great potential for growth in DeFi. ”

However, Zhao said that some DeFi projects „may not last long,“ although the industry provides a number of incentives through DeFi income and liquidity farms.

Zhao also said that cryptomoedas like Bitcoin are the best form of money, defining it as „freedom money for millions of people around the world. The CEO predicted that the market for cryptomorphs has the potential to grow by as much as 100,000%, as digital assets are supposed to become more widely adopted than the decree.

While he sees a future for DeFi, Zhao has highlighted obstacles for the industry to achieve mass appeal. In August, he said centralized exchanges will remain popular until decentralized exchanges become easier to use.

La revolución del CBDC llegará en tres años, dice el pesimista de Bitcoin Roubini.

La palabra „cripto-moneda“ es un nombre equivocado porque no es una moneda, según Roubini.

Nouriel Roubini, economista galardonado y conocido escéptico de Bitcoin (BTC), confía en que las monedas digitales de los bancos centrales, o CBDC, son el futuro del dinero.

De acuerdo con Roubini, los CBDCs globales como el yuan digital son capaces de reemplazar los principales servicios financieros y las criptodivisas en un futuro próximo. „Van a estar desplazando a los sistemas de pago digital, o en el sector privado, empezando con las criptodivisas que no son realmente monedas“, dijo el economista en una entrevista el 7 de noviembre con Yahoo Finance.

Roubini predijo que una „revolución“ impulsada por el CBDC llegará tan pronto como en tres años:

„Así que no sólo no necesitas la criptografía, ni siquiera necesitas a Venmo. Ni siquiera necesitas una cuenta bancaria. Ni siquiera necesitas el cheque. Y la gran revolución que veremos en los próximos tres años serán las monedas digitales del banco central“.

Además, el mundialmente conocido economista confía en que la criptodivisa en sí misma es un „nombre equivocado“, porque una moneda necesita proporcionar una unidad de cuenta. „Nada tiene precio en Bitcoin o en cualquier otra criptodivisa“, argumentó Roubini, afirmando que la criptodivisión no proporciona ni un „numerador único“, ni un „medio de pago escalable“.

Sin embargo, Roubini sí admitió que Bitcoin podía servir como almacén de valor, que es una función importante del dinero junto con una unidad de cuenta y un medio de intercambio:

„Es quizás un almacén parcial de valor, porque, a diferencia de otros miles de lo que yo llamo shitcoins, no puede ser tan fácilmente degradado porque hay al menos un algoritmo que decide cuánto aumenta el suministro de Bitcoin con el tiempo, porque para la mayoría de esos otros, literalmente, se hace ad hoc, y se están degradando más rápido que lo que hace la Reserva Federal“.

Roubini también ha criticado las finanzas descentralizadas, una de las principales tendencias del mercado criptográfico en 2020. „El DeFi fue vaporoso desde su inicio“, argumentó el economista a fines de septiembre de 2020, agregando que la industria está „totalmente vacilante ya que la cadena de bloques siempre fue la tecnología más sobrevalorada de la historia de la humanidad“.

Kraken’s Position on the Likely Hard Fork of Bitcoin Cash

Kraken is the latest cryptocurrency exchange to disclose its position on the potential division of the Bitcoin Cash chain.

The exchange says it supports Bitcoin Cash Node in the event of a split.

If Bitcoin Cash ABC attracts more than 10% of the hashing power, Kraken will credit users with newly created coins.

The main cryptocurrency exchange Kraken will support The News Spy if a split in the BCH chain occurs this month. The trading platform will only credit users with Bitcoin Cash ABC if it manages to attract noticeable hashing power after the introduction of a controversial network upgrade on November 15.

Exchanges and other cryptocurrency companies continue to reveal their own positions in the face of any upcoming chain split. So far, the responses have been varied.

Another hard fork?

The cryptocurrency industry increasingly expects a new division of the Bitcoin Cash chain later this month. A controversial and apparently marginally supported network upgrade threatens to create two versions of Bitcoin Cash. Those responsible for the change plan to implement it on November 15.

The upgrade is focused on the issue of developer funding. Some community members support an 8% developer payout taken directly from bulk rewards.

Meanwhile, others disagree, arguing that bulk rewards shouldn’t fund developers. Those in favor of a hard fork to bring in an integrated development fund form the Bitcoin Cash ABC camp. Meanwhile, opponents support the implementation known as the Bitcoin Cash Node.

Assistance Kraken

Kraken is the latest exchange to announce its position on the issue. The cryptocurrency trading platform, which recently became the first to boast a banking license, said in a blog post that it will support Bitcoin Cash Node regardless of the outcome of the hard fork.

The exchange says it will refer to Bitcoin Cash Node as “Bitcoin Cash”. It will also continue to use the symbol “ BCH ” for the implementation of the non-developer fund. It justifies its position by referencing 70% of network signaling support for Bitcoin Cash Node versus less than 1% for Bitcoin Cash ABC.

Kraken will only support Bitcoin Cash ABC if it attracts at least 10% of the total hashing power of Bitcoin Cash Node. He adds that it may not support full Bitcoin Cash ABC trading.

If the new version attracts enough hashing power, the exchange will credit users holding BCH at the time of the split of an equal number of Bitcoin Cash ABC. However, Kraken’s support may be limited to only allowing withdrawal of funds.

If he takes over the implementation of the development fund, he will do so under the symbol “BAB”, referring to the asset as “Bitcoin Cash ABC”. The exchange recommends that these Bitcoin Cash margin traders close their positions before the fork.

Iran’s central bank soon to be a bitcoin whale?

The Iranian leadership will in future allow international payment transactions with Bitcoin in order to circumvent sanctions. The central bank should also soon have a good amount of BTC on its books.

Money is a weapon and the US is masters of it. Since the United States of America de facto excluded Iran from international payments, the Islamic Republic has been doing worse and worse.

We remind us:

In November 2018, the payment messaging network SWIFT took Iranian banks offline at the instigation of the USA . Since then, imports and exports have hardly been possible, as they can only be paid for with great difficulty. The move was very successful as an economic sanction against Iran; In the end, political interests can be implemented quite effectively through the financial channels.

The Bitcoin community sensed a scandal back then. Ultimately, the US sanctioned the Iranian people, who suffer from such sanctions. Bitcoiners meanwhile stand for the neutrality of money. Money should work, do its job, but not satisfy political conduct like that of the United States.

Bitcoin: a neutral, monetary medium

Cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin are exactly that. A neutral, monetary medium that is not subject to any institution except its users. The leadership of crisis-ridden Iran seems to have understood this fact. There is no other explanation for the fact that both the government and the central bank of the Near Eastern state have passed a bill that allows traders to use Bitcoin to import goods.

Because like Iran Daily reports, „The government changed its regulations on cryptocurrencies to allow them to be used to finance imports.“ Specifically, this means that the central bank acts as a kind of middleman who passes on mined BTC to importers. They can then use the coins to reward trading partners outside the country’s borders.

The move is a bang and has generated a corresponding response in the community. Finally, the message implies that the monetary authorities of the Islamic Republic will soon have BTC on their balance sheets.

BTC acceptance and game theory

This is exactly the scenario that game theory suggests. On the global plaything, there are states whose sovereignty is threatened by Bitcoin – such as the USA as the issuer of the world reserve currency – and those that benefit from the acceptance of the cryptocurrency. Especially when it happens before anyone else. The latter include marginalized countries like Iran. From the point of view of the decision-makers, it is therefore all too understandable why such a decision was made.

The relationship between BTC and Iran has so far been characterized by mistrust. After it became known that Bitcoin miners were converting subsidized electricity into satoshis, the authorities shut down several crypto mines. Mining has been legal since July 2019 . However, the regulatory environment is still uncertain. However, the industry could certainly pick up speed with the latest developments. With the central bank, miners have at least one buyer for mined coins who does not lack liquidity.

El ex-ejecutivo de Goldman Sachs: ‚Enorme muro de dinero‘ llega a Bitcoin

El antiguo gestor de macrofondos de cobertura Raoul Pal, que cree que Bitcoin es „una reserva y un activo colateral de valor incalculable“, dijo que debido a la creciente adopción institucional de Bitcoin está considerando vender su oro para comprar más Bitcoin.

Antes de fundar el servicio de investigación de estrategias de inversión y macroeconomía GMI en 2005, Pal codirigió el GLG Global Macro Fund en Londres para la empresa de gestión de activos globales GLG Partners (que ahora se llama „Man GLG“). Antes de eso, Pal trabajó en Goldman Sachs, donde codirigió el negocio de ventas de fondos de cobertura europeos en Acciones y Derivados de Acciones.

Además, en la actualidad, Pal es el director general del canal de vídeo financiero y empresarial Real Vision, que cofundó en 2014.

En la edición de abril de 2020 del boletín de GMI, Pal explicó por qué cree que Bitcoin, al que llama „el futuro“, podría tener una valoración de 10 billones de dólares en el futuro.

En ese número, Pal dijo que la idea de una valoración de 10 billones de dólares para Bitcoin Billionaire no es tan descabellada:

„Después de todo, no es sólo una moneda o incluso un almacén de valor. Es todo un sistema financiero y contable seguro, verificado y de confianza, de valor digital que nunca puede ser creado fuera del algoritmo criptográfico…

„Es nada menos que el futuro de todo nuestro sistema de intercambio, y del propio dinero y la plataforma en la que opera.“

Los últimos comentarios de Pal sobre Bitcoin durante una entrevista con Daniela Cambone, editora general y presentadora de Stansberry Research, „un editor de información financiera y software por suscripción“.

Pal comenzó diciendo que actualmente estamos pasando a la fase de insolvencia de su tesis de tres fases para Bitcoin:

„Empiezo a ver que la narración recoge que la economía no se va a recuperar por mucho más tiempo del que esperamos, no hay ningún estímulo alrededor, y tenemos más problemas que vendrán en Europa, los EE.UU., y en otros lugares, y las empresas no tienen suficiente flujo de caja. Están cerrando en masa, y eso es lo que yo llamo la fase de insolvencia“.

A continuación, explicó por qué Bitcoin tiene una asignación del 50% en su cartera de inversiones personales:

„Esa ha sido una narración continua. He estado involucrado en Bitcoin desde 2012. Ha sido una narrativa continua que al principio de esto sabía que la única respuesta sería recortar todas las tasas de interés a cero y probablemente un estímulo negativo y masivo más allá de cualquier cosa que hayamos visto antes.

„Así que la primera fase en la que quiero estar involucrado en Bitcoin. Así que compré la venta, añadí a mis posiciones, y ahora estoy empezando a ver el barco hacia las insolvencias y la única respuesta es más de los bancos centrales.

„Así que, por eso empecé a comprar más y más Bitcoin. Técnicamente, la configuración es correcta. Obviamente, tuvimos la reducción a la mitad, y sólo la fase de adopción – lo que está pasando con las instituciones – es como el momento perfecto…

„Probablemente esté por encima del 50% ahora. De verdad, he reducido el dinero, lo he puesto en Bitcoin. Mis posiciones comerciales son relativamente pequeñas porque no creo que haya tantas oportunidades como en Bitcoin. Así que, en realidad, principalmente un poco de efectivo, algo de oro y Bitcoin, e incluso estoy jugando con la idea de vender mi oro para comprar más Bitcoin“.

Más tarde en la entrevista, Pal dijo que le parecía interesante la idea de que „la gente adopte una unidad monetaria diferente para sus ahorros y activos de reserva“.

Luego habló de la creciente adopción institucional de Bitcoin:

„Todo tiene que venir en oleadas, ¿verdad? Comenzó con el comercio minorista. Ha empezado a moverse hacia los fondos de cobertura; aún no hemos llegado a eso. No se pueden preparar activos de Bitcoin en quiebra, pero eso está por venir.

„Estamos empezando a ver oficinas familiares en el espacio. Luego, están las instituciones – las dotaciones, los planes de pensiones – y dentro de eso, encontrarás algún gobierno – sería algo así como Nicaragua – alguien dirá de repente que hemos asignado el 5% a Bitcoin… que va a llegar y será otra gran historia, muy parecida a la historia de Michael Saylor… que saldrá de la nada…“

A continuación, Pal habló de su predicción del precio de Bitcoin de 1 millón de dólares en los próximos cinco años:

„Sí, creo que es correcto… por lo que sé de todas las instituciones, de toda la gente con la que hablo, hay un enorme muro de dinero entrando en esto.

„Es un enorme muro de dinero – sólo que las tuberías no están ahí para permitir que la gente lo haga todavía, y eso está por venir, pero está en la pantalla del radar de todo el mundo y hay un montón de gente inteligente trabajando en ello. Por lo tanto, creo que no será porque el mundo se esté colapsando, sino porque habrá una adopción por parte de los grandes grupos de capital“.
