Over 100 000 Ethereum deponert i Kraken ETH 2.0

Over 100 000 Ethereum deponert i Kraken ETH 2.0 Staking Service

  • Ethereum staked for ETH 2.0 på Kraken utgjør 8% av totalen.
  • Børsbasert delegert innsats vokser i popularitet.
  • Det forventes flere innsatstjenester i 2021.

Trust Project er et internasjonalt konsortium av nyhetsorganisasjoner som bygger standarder for åpenhet.

Det var bare et spørsmål om tid til sentraliserte kryptokursutvekslinger hoppet Profit Revolution på ETH 2.0-stakingstoget med sine egne tjenester. Kraken har vært en av de siste som lanserte staking, og den har vært veldig populær.

Krakens innsatsstjeneste ETH 2.0 ble offisielt lansert 4. desember og har allerede nådd en stor milepæl med investorer som har satt inn over 100 000 ETH, verdt anslagsvis 55 millioner dollar til nåværende priser, på bare fire dager.

8% av totalt innsatt Ethereum på Kraken

Firmaets blogg hevdet at omtrent 8% av ETH som for øyeblikket er låst inne for Ethereum 2.0, nå er satt på Kraken. I følge ETH 2.0 Launchpad er det for tiden 1,27 millioner ETH-innsatser totalt, slik at selskapets påstand er ganske nær.

Jeremy Welch, Krakens VP for produkt, kommenterte at firmaet lenge har vært en sterk tilhenger av Ethereum;

“Vi var en av de første børsene som noterte Ether i august 2015. Vi har sett på at Ethereum har fortsatt å vokse i betydning. Fra 1. desember utgjør ETH-handelsvolum vanligvis mellom 15-40% av våre daglige Bitcoin-volumer. ”

Kraken uttalte at nåværende inntjening for ETH 2.0-innsats varierer mellom 5% og 17%. Børsen tilbyr også innsatstjenester for Polkadot, Tezos, Kusama og Cosmos.

Coinbase lanserte også sine egne innsatstjenester, men har ekskludert flertallet av sine kunder som ikke bruker Pro-versjonen av børsen.

I mellomtiden kunngjorde Binance ETH 2.0-innsatstjenester med belønninger pålydende i sine egne ‚BETH‘-tokens.

Fordeler og ulemper med delegert innsats

Ikke alle er komfortable med å kjøre sin egen maskinvare og programvare for å spille som en uavhengig validator.

Det kreves en stor grad av teknisk kunnskap, og det er straffer i form av ’slashing‘ hvis validatoren går offline, faller under 32 ETH-kravet, eller det er feilkonfigurasjonsproblemer som duplisering.

En rekke validatorer, inkludert grunnlegger av Synthetix-protokollen, Kain Warwick, har allerede funnet seg startet opp fra nettverket uten tilgang til midlene i minst ett år.

I tillegg kreves det full 32 ETH for å satse på egen hånd – og ikke alle har $ 17 600 (til gjeldende priser) som ligger rundt for å låse seg unna i minst et år.

Delegerte innsatstjenester som de som tilbys av Kraken og andre sentraliserte børser er sannsynligvis den valgte metoden for de fleste ETH-innehavere som ønsker passiv inntekt. Advarselen er at sentralen har nøklene til myntene, ikke deg!

MicroStrategy to Purchase $650 Million in Bitcoin

MicroStrategy to Purchase $650 Million in Bitcoin

  • MicroStrategy’s recently announced bond sale has already been completed.
  • The company has raised $650 million to purchase more BTCs.
  • MicroStrategy’s faith in Bitcoin is changing investor sentiment towards digital assets.
  • The Trust Project is an international consortium of media organisations based on transparency standards.

MicroStrategy has already completed the sale of $650 million in convertible bonds. The company will use the proceeds from this sale of Bitcoin Trader to purchase additional Bitcoins.

MicroStrategy is already one of the largest companies to own digital currency. However, the more than 40,000 BTCs it currently holds are clearly not enough for CEO Michael Saylor.

MicroStrategy’s bond sale raises $150 million more than expected

MicroStrategy and its CEO Michael Saylor have quickly become one of the leading topics of discussion in the cryptography industry. The company attracted attention when it announced in August of this year that it had used a portion of its cash reserve to purchase Bitcoins.

MicroStrategy subsequently purchased additional BTCs, bringing its total holdings to more than 40,000 BTCs. In October, Saylor also announced personal investments of more than 17,000 Bitcoins.

However, this BTC investment of approximately $730 million was clearly not enough for the company. As reported by BeInCrypto, the company revealed on December 8 that it intended to raise $400 million to purchase more BTC.

On Friday, MicroStrategy announced the completion of the sale of its convertible bonds. According to a press release issued by the company, the sale generated an additional $150 million, bringing the total raised to $650 million.

The 0.75% senior convertible bonds were sold to institutional buyers. The identity of these buyers remains unknown.

The bonds are scheduled to mature on December 15, 2025. MicroStrategy will retain the option to redeem them for cash, MicroStrategy common shares, or a combination of both.

Is MicroStrategy too focused on Bitcoin?

When Saylor first announced MicroStrategy’s bold bet on Bitcoin, its share price skyrocketed. This prompted some to say that investing in MicroStrategy represents a way for investors unable to buy BTCs to gain exposure to the asset price.

However, the recent sale of bonds has caused some observers to change their minds. On December 8, Citibank analysts downgraded the company’s stock rating from „neutral“ to „sell“.

The bank said Saylor now appears to be too focused on the crypto industry. Some fear that this could hurt his business. However, Saylor’s gamble has paid off so far. Indeed, the vast majority of his company and personal assets have been purchased at much lower prices.

Large-scale help to change sentiment towards the BTC

MicroStrategy is just one of many players starting to take Bitcoin seriously this year. Legendary investors such as Paul Tudor Jones, major financial institutions such as JP Morgan, and other publicly traded companies have all expressed optimism about the future of Bitcoin or have invested in it in recent months.

The most recent company to take a significant position in digital currency is Massachusetts Mutual. This 170-year-old life insurance company is reported to have purchased $100 million from BTC. It also reportedly invested $5 million in the financial services company NYDIG, which specialises in crypto-currency.

This restaurateur served sushi for Bitcoin, his life changed – What he did with his treasure

Sushi that’s worth its weight in gold It’s an extraordinary new story, only Bitcoin (BTC) has the secret, which we’re going to tell you today.

[…] After the incredible adventure of the Taihuttu family who sold everything to buy $900 worth of Bitcoin, here’s the story of the restaurateur who received 10 BTCs in exchange for a few sushi.

A bill paid in Bitcoins in 2013

This Bitcoinsic anecdote was lived by the journalist Kashmir Hill, who explains, in the New York Times, how it all began.

It was in May 2013, when the value of a single Bitcoin had just reached a new peak – at over 100 dollars – that the journalist decided to settle her bill at a Japanese restaurant with the young cryptomony created by Satoshi Nakamoto.

It must be said that the journalist had tried to spend her Bitcoin, bought for a handful of dollars some time before, on a young site called Coinbase.

„There weren’t many places that knew about Bitcoin, let alone accepted it for purchases. But since I was living in the technological mecca of San Francisco at the time, I still had a few options, including a cupcake store and a sushi restaurant called ‚Sake Zone‘. »
Kashmir Hill

And it was in the latter that she spent almost all of her last bitcoins of the time. For the occasion, the journalist had created a meet up event open to members of a new community of Bitcoin enthusiasts, which had just been created on the social network Reddit.

When simply accepting Bitcoins can pay big dividends

The manager of the Japanese restaurant Sake Zone, Yung Chen, had therefore taken the risk of receiving a motley crew of early cryptocurrency enthusiasts, and above all of accepting Bitcoins at a time when it was not easy to convert them back into fiat money.

At the end of the evening, he received 10.35 BTC as payment for the drinks of the guests of the journalist Kashmir Hill. What was then worth $1,000 is now valued at $240,000.

Seven and a half years later, the journalist called Yung Chen on the phone to find out where he stood. It turns out that the restaurateur was able to retire a little early, thanks in part to the bitcoin he had earned at the time. Indeed, by accepting Bitcoin early, he had accumulated 41 BTCs in those years. A gigantic hoard that would be worth $950,000 today.

But Cheng has nevertheless yielded to the temptation to resell some of it since, during the previous speculative bubble of 2017. A sale that he explains he regrets:

„In 2017, after the closure of the Sake Zone, when the bitcoins were worth a few thousand dollars […] [I] sold about a quarter of these bitcoins. I feel so badly about it…. Now I’m keeping them. Now I’m keeping it. That’s all I’m doing. I have them right here, like a stock, and I’m waiting. Bitcoin has become one of my main savings assets. »

Bitcoin has transformed more than a lifetime since its inception in 2009. Everyone who has been in the cryptosphere long enough has felt the same as the 2 protagonists of this story. However, even if HODL is a self-respecting art of living, spending a few satoshis (and not whole Bitcoins anymore) brings the Bitcoin network to life, so we have to find the right balance.

HET IS TIJD VOOR PLAN B: LEELA QUANTUM TECH ONTHULT BITCOIN EDITION BESCHERMEND T-SHIRT

Heeft iemand begin 2020 echt geanticipeerd op een wereldwijde pandemie? Zeker, mensen als Bill Gates en anderen waarschuwden voor een dergelijke realiteit, maar niemand wist of of en wanneer die zich ooit zou voordoen, en hun waarschuwingen kwamen ook nooit met een plan dat zo’n scenario kon voorkomen.

De waarheid is dat er dingen gebeuren. In plaats daarvan moeten we nooit zeggen nooit, en leren het onverwachte te verwachten. Door zo’n aanpak kunnen we de onvoorspelbaarheid die ons hele leven teistert drastisch verminderen.

Bitcoin wordt een verzekeringspolis tegen onzekerheid en een dekmantel tegen het huidige financiële systeem genoemd. In zekere zin volgt het bovenstaande mantra’s goed, wat slechts één van de vele redenen is waarom Leela Quantum Tech een speciale Bitcoin Revolution editie van hun eerste Quantum T-Shirt ter wereld heeft gemaakt.

Dit is de reden waarom de twee baanbrekende technologieën samen perfect op elkaar aansluiten en waarom dit jaar is gebleken dat het het beste is om voorbereid te zijn op alles wat mogelijk is.

Het eigen kwantum-energie-geïnfundeerde ontwerp werkt als een EMV-afweermiddel en is gecertificeerd door het International Institute for Electrosmog Research IGEF Ltd. Het werd ook bekroond met het 5-sterren BESA-keurmerk.

Het comfortabele en stijlvolle T-shirt dat meestal als standaard of Bitcoin-editie wordt geleverd, bestrijdt ook 99% van de hoogfrequente straling die wordt uitgezonden door mobiele telefoons, Wi-Fi en andere elektronica.

Elke draad is doordrenkt met 99,9% zuiver zilver om een ongeëvenaarde geurbescherming te bieden die in het T-shirt zelf is ingebouwd en is opgeladen met positieve kwantumenergie. Volgens studies uitgevoerd door twee onafhankelijke onderzoeksinstituten levert positieve kwantumenergie een schat aan positieve effecten op het menselijk lichaam op.
