Bitcoin fällt, als Bergleute verkaufen, Institutionen beobachten Yellen

Der Preis von Bitcoin fiel während der frühen Handelszeiten am Dienstag um bis zu 10%, als Bitcoin-Bergleute zum ersten Mal seit Oktober einen großen Teil der Kryptowährung verkauften. Es gibt nicht genügend Nachfrage, um die zusätzlichen Münzen auf dem Markt aufzunehmen, da die Institute eine Vorstellung davon haben möchten, wie die neue Biden-Administration Bitcoin und andere Kryptowährungen sehen wird.

Zum Zeitpunkt der Drucklegung wurde Crypto Trader laut CoinDesks BPI bei 32.254,59 USD gehandelt, was einem Rückgang von 3,04% in den letzten 24 Stunden entspricht . Der Preis fiel auf fast 30.000 US-Dollar, nachdem die Märkte in den USA am Dienstag geöffnet hatten.

Bergleute verkaufen

Der Positionsindex der Bitcoin-Bergleute, ein Verhältnis der Anzahl der Bitcoin-Beträge, die alle Brieftaschen aller Bergleute verlassen, zum gleitenden Einjahresdurchschnitt dieser Zahl, erreichte letzte Woche ein Achtjahreshoch und liegt nach Angaben des On-Chain-Analyseunternehmens immer noch über 2,0 CryptoQuant. Jeder Wert über 2,0 zeigt an, dass die meisten Bergleute verkaufen.

„Zum ersten Mal seit einiger Zeit scheinen Bergleute einige ziemlich beträchtliche Beteiligungen verkauft zu haben, um Geld zu sammeln, wie wir es bei einer Rallye nach Oktober erwartet hatten“, sagte Neil Van Huis, Direktor für Vertrieb und institutionellen Handel bei Blockfills, gegenüber CoinDesk. „Mit der Notwendigkeit, mehr (und neueren) Bergbaugeräten Kapital zuzuweisen, war es das beste Szenario, Bitcoin 30-60 Tage nach Ende der Regenzeit in China zu drei- oder viermal höheren Preisen aus der Bilanz zu nehmen ] hätte fragen können. “

Nicht genug Käufer

Während Bergleute weiterhin Bitcoin verkaufen, scheint es nicht genügend Käufer zu geben, insbesondere von institutionellen Investoren, um die Verkaufsseite zu treffen.

Die „ Coinbase-Prämie “, die Lücke zwischen dem BTC / USD-Paar von Coinbase und dem BTC / USDT- Paar von Binance, an der das Tether Stablecoin beteiligt ist, hat nach Angaben von CryptoQuant nach dem Negativ in der vergangenen Woche keine starken oder konsistenten Zahlen über 50 USD gezeigt.

Wenn diese Metrik über 50 US-Dollar liegt, deutet dies normalerweise auf einen stärkeren Kaufdruck von Coinbase hin, sagte Ki Young Ju, Chief Executive von CryptoQuant, gegenüber CoinDesk. Und wenn es keine USD-Spot-Zuflüsse gibt, sinkt die Prämie.

It’s getting serious: BlackRock is toying with Bitcoin investments

The world’s largest wealth manager may soon get into the digital gold business with two of its funds. This emerges from two applications that BlackRock filed with the US Securities and Exchange Commission on January 20.

From Saul to Paul:

This is how you could describe the change of attitude at BlackRock when it comes to Crypto Superstar. At least if the matching media reports from the English-speaking crypto space are correct, which distilled two recently submitted BlackRock applications to the SEC an increased donation of the financial giant to digital gold.

Specifically, it concerns the two funds „BlackRock Global Allocation Fund“ and „BlackRock Funds V“. BlackRock has filed a supplement to the respective securities prospectus for both of them with the US Securities and Exchange Commission. The applications indicate that investments in Bitcoin futures will also be reserved in the future.

Each Fund may use instruments called derivatives. These are financial instruments that derive their value from one or more securities, commodities (such as gold or oil), currencies (including Bitcoin) […]

BlackRock also points out the risks that include the volatility of the crypto market, possible regulatory measures and the difficulty of determining the price of Bitcoin, the value of which is not covered by a government or a company. BlackRock also plans to trade Bitcoin Futures exclusively on exchanges that are subject to the supervision of the Commodities and Futures Trading Commission (CFTC). So far, only the Chicago Mercantile Exchange (CME) has come into question.

BlackRock: Bitcoin has been on the radar for a long time

BlackRock’s advance fits into the picture of a growing enthusiasm for Bitcoin among institutional investors, which has further legitimized the number 1 cryptocurrency in recent months. Bitcoin seems to be less and less attached to the dirty image as a darknet currency from its early days. With good reason, after all, with its transparent blockchain, BTC offers a real honey pot for law enforcement authorities who have long since found ways and means to track down careless authors of Bitcoin transactions .

For a long time, BlackRock had also found it difficult to recognize Bitcoin as a legitimate asset. In 2017, Larry Fink, CEO of BlackRock, described Bitcoin as a “speculative money laundering instrument,” which institutional investors avoided with good reason. However, a change of heart at BlackRock has already in 2018 signed . In the years that followed, BlackRock approached Bitcoin more and more. It was not until December 2020 that a job advertisement for the asset manager caused a sensation, in which a search was made for a crypto specialist for the valuation of digital assets. Previously, CEO Fink had already admitted the potential to BTC at the event of a US think tankTo become “a global market”. With Bitcoiners, of course, he runs into open doors.

Nathaniel Whittemore discussed Bitcoin’s price trajectory and what might be holding back bullish momentum

The price of Bitcoin (BTC) is recently experiencing a very volatile moment, having more than doubled in the last two months after leaving behind the previous record highs of 2017. Podcaster Nathaniel Whittemore gave his opinion on ways to spot a macro top in this bull run.

The host of The Breakdown podcast told Cointelegraph, „There really isn’t a macro top in the sense that the conditions align nicely with the narrative.“

Whittemore then added:

Following the March crash, Crypto Profit recovered faster than the U.S. stock market, which had suffered a similar collapse. After completing its third halving in May, the asset trended sideways for most of the summer, but its overall macro-trend remained bullish. Coinciding with significant capital allocations by some large companies, the price of BTC rose significantly in the final months of 2020.

„If the Democrats were to impose a series of new fiscal measures and after a few months the velocity of money was still low and inflation limited, then some managers and institutions might decide to turn around, animated by the idea that inflation is not something to worry about-that could hurt some of the thesis animating the bull run.“

The U.S. economic situation also plays an important role in this reasoning, as the government has been working on a number of economic stimuli as well as printing significant amounts of money.

Bitcoin’s previous macro bull run tops have come as a result of price corrections in an extended bullish outlook. A local top is a shorter-term price spike that occurs before a correction.

Whittemore pointed out:

„A local top could come if people get nervous that [BTC] is too unstable and the market has overheated with new retail investors coming in. […] That hasn’t happened yet, but it looks like we’re in an early stage (see Coinbase coming in at #25 on the most downloaded free apps from Apple’s App Store).“

Just nine days into the new year, Bitcoin is already up more than 40 percent, according to data from TradingView.com.

Whittemore continued:

„The speed of this growth is pretty dizzying, there’s no denying that. What’s happening is that we have a hugely underpriced asset, with a constrained supply by design, that is finally being revalued. A lot of big buyers have moved in and there’s not enough to go around.“

Bitcoin has a maximum supply of 21 million coins, making it an inherently scarce asset. Regardless, BTC is still less than 15 years old: as Mark Cuban previously stated, Bitcoin is worth as much as people are willing to pay for it, as is the case with gold. Some experts, such as financial commentator Peter Schiff, still remain skeptical of Bitcoin and call it a bubble.

4. januar ble den Litecoin (LTC) -prisen nådde en høyde på $ 173, en høyde som ikke er sett siden 2018.

Mens det kan fortsette å øke og nå motstandsområdet på $ 185, ser det ut til at det nåværende rallyet er topptungt, og en korrigerende bevegelse vil snart følge.

LTCs langsiktige bevegelse

Det ukentlige diagrammet viser at LTC endelig har beveget seg over toppene i juni 2019 på $ 145 og faktisk har nådd en ukentlig avslutning over dette nivået.

Hvis den fortsetter å øke, vil de neste motstandsområdene være på $ 186 og $ 225, henholdsvis 0,5 og 0,618 Fib retracement nivåer.

Tekniske indikatorer er bullish, og støtter muligheten for et brudd og en gradvis bevegelse mot de beskrevne motstandsområdene.

Cryptocurrency trader @ Pentosh1 skisserte et diagram og sa at når det endelige motstandsområdet på $ 140 er brutt, vil sannsynligvis et betydelig oppadgående trekk følge.

Siden tweeten har LTC beveget seg over dette nivået og vil dermed sannsynligvis fortsette å øke.

De Bitcoin-levering warmt op als Grayscale bijna 3x de in december gedolven BTC koopt.

Grayscale brengt zijn totale vermogen onder beheer op tijd boven de $20 miljard voor het begin van 2021, naarmate de vraag van BTC toeneemt.

Institutionele crypto-investeringsgigant Grayscale heeft nu $20 miljard onder zijn controle omdat zijn Bitcoin (BTC) de productie met bijna drie tegen een overstijgt.

Zoals opgemerkt door de gegevensanalysebron Coin98 Analytics op 1 januari, kocht Grayscale bijna drie keer meer BTC dan wat er in december 2020 op de markt werd gebracht.

Het is officieel: Mijnwerkers kunnen niet genoeg Bitcoin produceren…

Vorige maand voegde het bedrijf een totaal van 72.950 BTC (2,132 miljard dollar) toe aan zijn activa onder beheer (AUM). In dezelfde periode genereerden de mijnwerkers slechts 28.112 BTC (821,7 miljoen dollar) – 38,5% van de buy-in van Grayscale.

De cijfers onderstrepen wat velen hebben beschreven als een voortdurende liquiditeitskrapte in Bitcoin Profit waar grote kopers elke beschikbare voorraad opzuigen en uit de circulatie nemen, en deze naar de koelcel sturen voor de lange termijn.

Zoals Cointelegraph rapporteerde, was het fenomeen al zichtbaar in november, maar in december was er een duidelijke toename van de vraag van Grayscale en andere institutionele entiteiten.

BTC ontgint het in december 2020 tegen Grayscale.

Grayscale controleert nu 20 miljard dollar in crypto…

Terwijl de klok klok klokte op oudejaarsavond, vierde Grayscale CEO Barry Silbert dat hij het totale AUM van het bedrijf over zijn verschillende crypto-fondsen naar meer dan 20 miljard dollar bracht. Een jaar geleden was dat nog maar 2 miljard dollar.

Grayscale crypto activa onder beheer vanaf 31 december 2020.

Het bedrijf blijft de grootste institutionele speler op de Bitcoin-scene, met zijn 17,475 miljard dollar in BTC, die elke andere marktdeelnemer ver overtreft. Nieuwkomer MicroStrategy heeft nu 70.470 BTC (2,06 miljard dollar) in handen, hoewel het geen investeringsbedrijf is.

Analisten voorspellen dat meer vraag naar het vaste aanbod van „nieuwe“ bitcoins van mijnwerkers alleen maar zal dienen om een biedoorlog te creëren en de prijs op te drijven. De verkopers zagen reeds stijve resolutie van kopers in December onder ogen, toen de nieuwe hoogtepunten van alle tijden er niet in slaagden om significante langdurige terugtrekkingen te veroorzaken.
