La componibilità e l’elevata redditività di DeFi sono il futuro della finanza

John Wu, presidente di Avalanche Labs, e Sten Laureyssens, consulente strategico delle Waves Associazioni, hanno dichiarato a Cointelegraph China durante il suo evento di interviste settimanali su Hub il 4 febbraio che con l’interoperabilità e l’alta scalabilità, la finanza decentralizzata potrebbe cambiare il futuro della finanza.

Wu ritiene che rispetto alla finanza tradizionale, la Bitcoin Future sia ancora nella fase iniziale di sviluppo e applicazione. Tuttavia, la DeFi supererà di gran lunga le istituzioni finanziarie tradizionali nel prossimo futuro perché i suoi protocolli non hanno restrizioni. Inoltre consente di risparmiare notevolmente sui costi e può anche creare notevoli vantaggi per gli utenti ordinari.

Wu ha anche sottolineato che la piattaforma DeFi ideale dovrebbe essere in grado di combinare un ponte cross-chain decentralizzato con molti blockchain diversi. Ha aggiunto:

“Come tutti sappiamo, la parte più interessante della DeFi è la componibilità tra diverse applicazioni. Spero che tutti questi soldi Lego vengano adottati e integrati insieme per fornire agli utenti nuovi prodotti finanziari „.

Wu ha rivelato che l’Avalanche Protocol è una piattaforma blockchain open source progettata per DeFi, con interoperabilità e alta scalabilità. Ancora più importante, il protocollo Avalanche è la prima piattaforma di contratti intelligenti a ottenere la conferma entro un secondo, supportando tutti i kit di sviluppo di Ethereum.

Avalanche spera anche di aiutare vari progetti DeFi sulla sua piattaforma. Secondo Wu, ci sono già alcuni grandi progetti costruiti su Avalanche, come market maker automatizzati, prestito decentralizzato, sintesi di opzioni decentralizzate e derivati.

Le alternative contano

Sten Laureyssens, un consulente strategico per la Waves Association, ha sottolineato che Robinhood e GameStop hanno dimostrato che abbiamo bisogno di un nuovo sistema alternativo. Lui ha spiegato:

“Robinhood e GameStop faranno capire agli investitori che l’attuale sistema tradizionale esistente non è adatto a loro. La domanda più importante è: quali alternative adatte sono disponibili nel campo blockchain? “

L’elevata inflazione in paesi come la Turchia e il Brasile è un altro motivo per cui un sistema alternativo è vitale, ritiene Laureyssens. Ha aggiunto:

„Alcune persone acquistano stablecoin perché non hanno bisogno di un conto bancario per scambiare denaro direttamente in criptovaluta. Tuttavia, questo è tutt’altro che sufficiente. Ciò di cui gli utenti hanno veramente bisogno è la capacità ad alto rendimento nella finanza decentralizzata „.

Secondo Laureyssens, Waves, in quanto potente ecosistema blockchain-agnostico incentrato sulla DeFi inter-chain, ha una visione per essere l’incarnazione della libertà tecnologica per la finanza basata su blockchain.

Laureyssens ha anche sottolineato che l’attuale spazio DeFi manca ancora di una soluzione migliore per offrire agli utenti un’esperienza migliore. Waves partecipa attivamente all’ecosistema DeFi e alla costruzione di infrastrutture DeFi.

Andare avanti con partnership vantaggiose per tutti

Secondo Wu e Laureyssens, sia Avalanche che Waves stanno lavorando a stretto contatto per cercare di trovare soluzioni urgenti per connettere diverse applicazioni e piattaforme blockchain. Wu ha aggiunto:

“Molti progetti DeFi con cui stiamo parlando credono in un futuro multi-catena e sono interessati a costruire catene multiple. Un robusto ponte cross-chain in grado non solo di gestire i trasferimenti di token, ma anche la comunicazione cross-chain generale aumenta la possibilità di applicazioni veramente nuove „.

This stock market giant is trying everything to mine bitcoin … while there is still time!

Mad Bitcoin Miners – The fact that the Bitcoin network’s hashrate is already at its all-time highs does not deter some. The Marathon Patent Group announces that it has placed a record order for specialized ASIC mining machines from Bitmain.

Marathon wants to have over 100,000 Antminer S19

Listed on the Nasdaq stock exchange, the Marathon Patent Group company specializes in digital asset mining , a sector in which it is one of the main players in North America.

According to a press release issued on December 28, Marathon entered into a contract with Crypto Investor for the purchase of 70 000 miners type Antminer S19 .

Under the terms of the agreement, receipt of this gargantuan order will begin in July 2021 and is expected to end in December 2021.

With the 33,000 Antminer S19 miners that Marathon already owns today, the firm will therefore have a total of 103,000 latest generation bitcoin (BTC) miners .

“This purchase is (…) the largest S19 ASIC miner order Bitmain has ever received. We appreciate the hard work of their team to fulfill this order, as well as for the 30,000 S-19 miners that we have purchased since August 2020 (…) and we look forward to continuing to work with them to grow our business. “

The equivalent of more than 7% of Bitcoin’s global hahsrate

Once the order is fulfilled, the Marathon group will have a total computing power of 10.36 EH / s (exahashes per second).

If the BTC network’s proof-of-work consensus hashrate remained at 140 EH / s as it is now, Marathon alone would represent around 7.4% of this computing power.

One thing is certain in any case, with this order of 170 million dollars for its Antminers, Bitmain has already secured its 2021 season:

“The new contract for 70,000 Antminer S19 with Marathon convincingly demonstrates the major role of our S19, in providing our customers with world-class mining efficiency. (…) Marathon quickly became our biggest customer, and our partnership continues to mutually benefit both of our businesses. „

Irene Gao, Antminer Sales Director for North and South America

While listed companies, like MicroStrategy, invest in bitcoins, the Marathon group prefers to go straight to the source, to mine BTC itself (in the hope of reselling them for gold perhaps?). It will also represent a welcome geographic diversification of bitcoin mining, which will thus be a little less concentrated in China than at present.

Jefferies‘ Global Head of Equity Strategy reduziert Gold-Exposure zugunsten von Bitcoin

Am Freitag (18. Dezember) berichtete der indische Business Standard, dass Christopher Wood, Global Head of Equity Strategy beim Finanzdienstleister Jefferies …

…kürzlich das Goldexposure in seinem „long-only global portfolio for US dollar-denominated pension funds“ zu Gunsten von Bitcoin reduziert hat.

Am 30. Mai 2019 gab Jefferies die Ernennung von Christopher Wood zum Global Head of Equity Strategy bekannt. In der Pressemitteilung von Jefferies hieß es, dass Wood „in den letzten zwei Jahrzehnten in fast allen großen Broker-Umfragen in Asien als Top-Aktienstratege eingestuft wurde.“ Am selben Tag startete Jefferies die erste Ausgabe des wöchentlichen institutionellen Research-Newsletters GREED & Fear von Chris Wood.

In dem Bericht des Business Standard heißt es weiter, dass Wood in seinem wöchentlichen Newsletter Folgendes über Gold und Bitcoin gesagt habe:

„Die 50-prozentige Gewichtung von physischen Goldbarren im Portfolio wird zum ersten Mal seit mehreren Jahren um fünf Prozentpunkte reduziert und das Geld in Bitcoin investiert. Sollte der Bitcoin nach dem historischen Ausbruch über die 20.000-Dollar-Marke vom aktuellen Niveau aus stark nachgeben, wird beabsichtigt, diese Position aufzustocken.“

Sumit Gupta, Mitbegründer und CEO der Krypto-Börse CoinDCX, sagte dem Business Standard:

„Auf fundamentaler Ebene ist das Wachstum von Bitcoin größtenteils darauf zurückzuführen, wie es gestaltet ist, und im Mai 2020 wurden wir Zeugen des dritten Halvings, eines Angebotsschock-Ereignisses, bei dem die Anzahl der täglich geminten Bitcoin halbiert wird. In den vorangegangenen zwei Halvings sind Bitcoin und die gesamte Krypto-Marktkapitalisierung exponentiell gestiegen, und wir erleben gerade den Beginn eines ähnlichen Bullentrends.“

Derzeit (Stand: 12:05 UTC am 20. Dezember), nach Daten von CryptoCompare, wird Bitcoin bei $23,560 gehandelt, was einem Anstieg von 2,4% in den letzten 24 Stunden entspricht.

Paxos CEO erklärt, warum Bitcoin „etwas ist, das fast jeder haben sollte

In einem aktuellen Interview, Charles Cascarilla, Mitbegründer und CEO von FinTech Firma Paxos, erklärte, warum er denkt, dass „mit einer kleinen Allokation von Bitcoin ist etwas fast jeder haben sollte.“

In einem Interview mit CNBC-Moderatorin Kelly Evans, am Donnerstag (17. Dezember), wurde Cascarilla zunächst von Evans gefragt, ob Leute, deren Pensionsfonds in Bitcoin investiert haben, sich wohl fühlen sollten.

Bitcoin celebrates new highs as USD plummets

The USD index shows a 7% drop since the beginning of the year, dropping below 90 for the first time in 2 and a half years.

The dollar has been affected by global socio-economic uncertainty and rising inflation.

Bitcoin has risen nearly 350% this year as it is increasingly seen as a hedge against inflation and a store of value.

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

The dollar index fell below 90 for the first time since April 2018. This is the lowest level for the global reserve currency in the past 2.5 years.

As the world, especially the United States, continues to suffer from widespread economic turbulence, general uncertainty and rising inflation, the value of the dollar has taken a significant hit.

Throughout this year, the dollar index fell by about 7%, from about 97 to its current level of 89.96. The dollar’s index has been on a downward trend since the beginning of the year.

While global fiat currencies are struggling under the current socio-economic conditions, cryptomoney like Ethereum Code is suffering the opposite effect.

Protecting against inflation

While the world’s fiduciary currencies are experiencing multi-year difficulties and troughs, the opposite is true for Bitcoin.

Since the beginning of 2020, the value of the BTC has increased by almost 350%, with its peak market value rising from $120.4 billion at the beginning of the year to $419.5 billion currently.

As the world struggles to find the best way forward economically, Bitcoin and its predetermined supply and production rate seems to bring some stability in the midst of uncertainty.

Can Bitcoin replace the dollar as a store of value?

Traditionally, when a person seeks financial stability, they hold „safe“ assets such as gold, real estate or a globally dominant currency.

With a global pandemic and a world economy at a standstill, partly supported by galloping inflation, many users and institutions are beginning to view Bitcoin as a safer cash asset than its alternatives.

There are many examples of institutions that are following this thought process. One of the best examples is MicroStrategy, a member of the S&P SmallCap 600 Index, which owns more than $700 million of Bitcoin and plans to purchase an additional $650 million.

Michael Saylor, MicroStrategy’s CEO, decided that it would be safer for the company to have a portion of its cash reserves in Bitcoin rather than USD, as he sees Bitcoin as a stronger hedge against inflation. So far, Saylor seems to be right, as digital assets continue their steady rise after recently surpassing their previous record.

Although daily price movements are not an indicator of long-term strength or ease of use, Bitcoin has continued to recover with a daily increase of almost 20%.

Celsius rapporterer at det doblet kryptobeholdningen

Celsius rapporterer at det doblet kryptobeholdningen til $ 2,2B på seks måneder

Den sentraliserte kryptolåneplattformen Celsius hevder å ha doblet kryptobeholdningen på bare seks måneder, og kan nå skryte av 2,2 milliarder dollar i eiendeler under forvaltning.

Crypto-utlåns- og låneplattform Celsius har kunngjort at den nå har mer enn 2,2 milliarder dollar i digitale eiendeler under forvaltning.

I følge en 9. november-utgivelse har Celsius Bitcoin Billionaire mer enn doblet nettokryptobeholdningen seks måneder etter først å ha overgått 1 milliard dollar i juni. Plattformen har tiltrukket mer enn 215 000 brukere totalt over hele verden.

Bortsett fra AUM inkluderer Celsius ‚balanse nå kontanter og dets opprinnelige CEL-tokens, til en verdi av mer enn 680 millioner dollar.

Celsius tilbyr et sentralisert alternativ til desentralisert finansiering, kalt „CeFi“ av mye av kryptosamfunnet

Crypto-eiendeler som er deponert på plattformen lånes ut til børser og markedsmarkører, hvor 80% av den genererte interessen blir distribuert til innskytere.

Siden lanseringen i juli 2018 hevder Celsius å ha betalt mer enn $ 80 millioner i belønning til innskytere.

I kunngjøringen beskriver Celsius ’administrerende direktør og grunnlegger, Alex Mashkinsky, selskapets suksess som bevis for at“ renteinntekt er den nye killer-appen for krypto. ”

„Vi har skapt mer inntekt for våre kunder enn noen andre i DeFi eller CeFi, og vi har ingen planer om å bremse opp snart.“

I forrige måned fikk Mashinsky overskrifter etter å ha gitt sin kone 15 millioner CEL-tokens til en verdi av 20 millioner dollar til bursdagen hennes. Mashinsky er fortsatt den største CEL-innehaveren til tross for den heftige stede, mens hans kone nå er CELs fjerde største holder.

I august hevet Celsius 20 millioner dollar fra rundt 1000 investorer i en aksjeinnsamling vert for kryptoplattformen BnkToTheFuture, og tegnet spekulasjoner om selskapets solvens.

I løpet av den siste helgen arkiverte konkurrerende kryptoutlånstjeneste Cred for konkurs, og oppførte forpliktelser på opptil ti ganger eiendelene, og etterlot brukerne usikre på om de vil være i stand til å gjenopprette pengene sine fra plattformen.

Uniswap now at TradingView: Boost for UNI?

Ethereum (ETH) mining will soon no longer be necessary: ​​The Ethereum blockchain is switching from PoW to PoS and no longer needs miners to verify the blocks. The picture shows an Ethereum coin on a circuit board.

In the area of ​​decentralized finance (DeFi), Uniswap is considered the platform par excellence. The platform has long since reached dimensions that are comparable to central stock exchanges. Another important milestone for the platform and users of DeFi applications is the current integration with TradingView .

Let’s take a look together at the advantages of the Bitcoin Code integration with TradingView and which functions are provided.

Uniswap trading pairs on TradingView

Let’s briefly summarize the most important information: Traders and investors who work with Uniswap could now display their preferred trading pairs via TradingView.

The way it works is very simple: All you need to do is enter the keyword „Uniswap:“ to access the top 100 trading pairs on the decentralized exchange.

As you can see from the following tweet, TradingView announced the integration two days ago via Twitter.

Uniswap manages to reach another important milestone with the integration into TradingView. The success and rise of the platform becomes particularly clear when one considers the short existence of the project.

It becomes even more specific if you look at Uniswap’s tweet series. The team highlighted their most important successes in recent weeks.

In addition to the 100,000 followers on Twitter, there are the 200,000 UNI claimers and 88,000 UNI holders. The more than 1000 trading pairs are also worth mentioning, as is the large proportion of the Ethereum volume.

With a lot of pathos, the team thanked all the users who made this growth possible:

We are so grateful to the Uniswap community and excited to see the project continue to grow.

UniSwap (UNI): performance at a glance

But what about the associated UNI token? – The sober numbers on UNI’s performance read as follows:

UniSwap (UNI) is currently in 35th place on Coinmarketcap with a price of $ 3.05. This gives the project a good place considering the fact that the UNI launch did not take place until September 17th.

Despite the short trading hours, we were already able to observe high volatility. UNI is currently trading around 65% below its all-time high of a good 8.40 USD.

What is certain is that the project was able to achieve many important milestones in the short time and has created a fundamental basis. We will look forward to the further development of UNI.

Kolumbianische Regierung lädt Unternehmen ein

Kolumbianische Regierung lädt Unternehmen ein, ihren Rahmen für Krypto-Transaktionen zu testen

Kolumbien unternimmt einen weiteren wichtigen Schritt zur Regulierung der Krypto-Sphäre des Landes.

Die kolumbianische Regierung hat am 22. September ein Pilotprogramm genehmigt, das Unternehmen dazu aufruft, bis zum 31. Dezember kryptographische Transaktionen bei Bitcoin Future innerhalb der gerade von der kolumbianischen Finanzaufsicht verabschiedeten regulatorischen Sandbox zu testen.

Während eines Panels mit dem Titel „Überblick über die Regulierung von Krypto-Vermögenswerten in Kolumbien“ gab Jorge Castaño, Leiter der kolumbianischen Finanzaufsicht (SFC), bekannt, dass Unternehmen, die Krypto-Transaktionen testen wollen, bis Ende des Jahres einen Antrag stellen sollten, da das Pilotprogramm 2021 laufen wird.

Der neue regulatorische Sandkasten wurde am 14. September vom Ministerium für Finanzen und öffentliche Kredite genehmigt. Der SFC arbeitete den Sandkasten aus:

„Dieser Raum ermöglicht es dem SFC, ein Gleichgewicht zwischen einer angemessenen Regulierung, die auf eine umfassende Überwachung der überwachten Einrichtungen abzielt, der Verhinderung von Krisensituationen, der illegalen Ausübung von Finanztätigkeiten und der Förderung und Unterstützung neuer technologischer Fortschritte im Bereich der Finanzdienstleistungen aufrechtzuerhalten.

Gastgeber des Panels war Mauricio Toro, ein lokaler Kongressabgeordneter und Verfasser des Gesetzes, das die Kryptoindustrie in Kolumbien regulieren soll. Castaño sagte Toro, dass sich das Pilotprogramm in fünf Phasen entwickeln wird: Bewerbung, Auswahl, Strukturierung, Überwachung und Feedback.

Wie geht es weiter?

Obwohl es keinen genauen Zeitplan für das Pilotprogramm im Jahr 2021 gibt, erwähnte der Leiter des SFC, dass „vier kolumbianische Finanzdienstleister“ Interesse an einer Teilnahme an dem Versuch bekundet hätten.

Am 4. April 2019 kam ein Gesetzesentwurf zur Regulierung von Krypto-Tauschplattformen in Kolumbien ans Licht. Ziel dieses Gesetzes war es, allgemein zu definieren, wie Unternehmen, die in Kolumbien Krypto-Tauschdienste anbieten, arbeiten sollten.

Die Debatte um die Verabschiedung des Gesetzentwurfes wurde durch bürokratische Fragen verzögert, wie z.B. durch das Warten auf eine klare Haltung des SFC gegenüber Krypto. Mit dem Start des Pilotplans zur Erprobung von Krypto-Transaktionen kommentierte der Kongressabgeordnete Toro laut Bitcoin Future auf dem Podium jedoch, dass dies „die Diskussionen beschleunigen“ könnte, um den Gesetzentwurf 2022 verabschieden zu können, wenn im Kongress alles gut geht.

Market Watch: Bitcoin Rond $11K Als ETH Eyes $400

Bitcoin blijft rond de 11.000 dollar. De gratis UNI-munten airdropped door Uniswap schommelde de vergoedingen en de vraag naar Etherische en ETH-sprongen met 2%..

Het grootste deel van de cryptotheekmarkt is de afgelopen 24 uur relatief rustig geweest. Bitcoin handelt rond de $11.000, en Ethereum springt met 2% tot $385.

De meeste aandacht ging uit naar de governance token (UNI) van Uniswap die gisteren werd gelanceerd. Na noteringen op de meest prominente digital asset beurzen, handelt UNI tegen $5.3.

Bitcoin blijft onder $11K

Zoals gisteren gemeld, probeerde de primaire cryptocurrency de $11.000 te overwinnen. Het leek aanvankelijk succesvol, maar de beweging werd snel omgekeerd, waardoor de prijs van Bitcoin onder het begeerde niveau kwam.

De prijsdaling ging verder in de volgende uren en BTC bereikte zijn intraday-laagtepunt van $10.750. Sindsdien heeft het bedrijf zich echter hersteld en handelt het op $10.950.

Bitcoin moet nog steeds de eerste weerstand met $11.000 resoluut overwinnen voordat het de kans krijgt om verder in waarde te stijgen. Als het succesvol is, moet BTC de volgende weerstandslijnen bestrijden op $11.150 en $11.400.

Als de steun op het 0,382 Fibonacci-niveau ($10.800) geen Bitcoin kan bevatten in geval van een prijsonderbreking, kan het bedrijf daarentegen rekenen op $10.660, gevolgd door $10.450.

UNI Winsten Tractie Terwijl Grotere-Kap Alts Chill

De meeste altcoins met een grotere kap zijn op een 24-uursschaal blijven staan. Ripple, Litecoin en Binance Coin zijn minder dan 1% hoger, terwijl Polkadot, Bitcoin Cash en Chainlink ongeveer 1% lager zijn.

Ethereum’s 2% stijging tot boven de $385 is de meest indrukwekkende prijsbeweging in de top tien. Dit kan worden toegeschreven aan de ontwikkelingen met de governance token van Uniswap die gisteren werd gelanceerd.

Bij de UNI-versie kondigde het populaire DEX-protocol aan dat het 15% van de totale voorraad van de token zal uitgeven aan iedereen die het platform heeft gebruikt. Duizenden gebruikers ontvingen elk 400 gratis UNI-munten. Om de munten te claimen, moest de gebruiker echter gebruik maken van het Ethereum-netwerk. Deze stormloop op de gratis munten leidde tot recordbedragen.

Degenen die geen ETH-munten hadden om de gaskosten te betalen, moesten een deel kopen, waardoor de vraag toenam en de prijs van ETH uiteindelijk hoger kwam te liggen.

In ieder geval waren de meeste ogen gisteren (en vandaag) gericht op UNI. De populariteit van het protocol spoorde uitwisselingen zoals Coinbase Pro en Binance aan om de inheemse penning bijna onmiddellijk op te sommen. Dit bracht massale aandacht en een prijsstijging met zich mee. Op het moment van dit schrijven handelt UNI voor $5, en het totale marktplafond van $850 miljoen plaatst het in de top 30 van de munten.

Andere indrukwekkende prijsstijgingen zijn ABBC Munt (28%), SushiSwap (18%), Solana (15%), Neo (15%) en Loopring (13%).

Come un ricercatore ha tenuto un serio problema di Bitcoin in silenzio e fuori dai riflettori

A volte il modo migliore per garantire che i vostri nemici non possano approfittare di voi è quello di mantenere tutte le vostre vulnerabilità e i vostri problemi il più segreto possibile, e per un team di ricercatori bitcoin, farlo ha garantito che il numero uno al mondo di criptovalute con il limite di mercato è rimasto al sicuro negli ultimi due anni.

Bitcoin ha avuto un problema importante che è stato tenuto nascosto

Nel 2018, Bitcoin Core è stato scoperto ad avere una grave vulnerabilità. Non passò molto tempo prima che il problema venisse risolto, ma l’intera operazione fu mantenuta molto silenziosa per garantire che gli hacker non avessero la minima idea della sua esistenza. Se lo avessero fatto, avrebbero senza dubbio trovato altri modi per esplorare la vulnerabilità.

Ora, due anni dopo, i ricercatori della Bitcoin Code hanno finalmente chiarito la situazione. Credendo che non si possano verificare ulteriori attacchi, hanno pubblicato un nuovo rapporto che mostra che una simile vulnerabilità è apparsa in altre catene di blocco di cripto-currency. La questione è denominata INVDoS, che a livello di base è un attacco DDoS (denial of service) standard.

Nella maggior parte dei casi gli attacchi DDoS sono relativamente facili da gestire. Essi non comportano necessariamente la perdita o il furto di fondi, bensì impediscono alle imprese o a determinate imprese e progetti di svolgere normalmente la loro attività. Scoperto nel 2018 da Braydon Fuller, il vero pericolo con INVDoS ha mostrato il suo volto quando Fuller ha scoperto che un hacker potrebbe sviluppare transazioni bitcoin problematiche che potrebbero distruggere la memoria dei server bitcoin. Questo potrebbe portare alla fine al crash di vari sistemi.

In un’intervista, Fuller ha spiegato:

Al momento della scoperta, questo rappresentava più del 50% dei nodi bitcoin pubblicizzati pubblicamente con traffico in entrata, e probabilmente la maggioranza dei minatori e degli scambi.

Questo potrebbe aver influito su altre monete

Egli ha inoltre affermato che lo stesso attacco avrebbe potuto essere eseguito potenzialmente su diverse altre catene di blocco, come Litecoin e Namecoin. Fuller era fiducioso che tali attacchi avrebbero potuto influenzare i processi di transazione di queste valute e garantire la perdita di denaro.

Egli ha dichiarato:

Ciò potrebbe essere dovuto alla perdita di tempo di estrazione o al dispendio di energia elettrica per la chiusura dei nodi e per il ritardo dei blocchi o per la partizione temporanea della rete. Potrebbe anche essere dovuto a perturbazioni e ritardi di contratti sensibili al fattore tempo o al divieto di attività economiche. Ciò potrebbe influire sul commercio, sugli scambi, sugli swap atomici, sui depositi a garanzia e sui canali di pagamento HTLC della rete fulminea.

Negli ultimi anni lo spazio cripto è stato caratterizzato da frodi e attività malevole, con incidenti come Coincheck che si sono verificati meno di tre anni fa all’inizio di gennaio del 2018. La situazione ha portato al più alto livello di perdite di crittografia nella storia dello spazio, con oltre 500 milioni di dollari di fondi digitali spariti nel giro di una notte. L’incidente ha portato alla fine al coinvolgimento delle autorità finanziarie giapponesi che regolano lo spazio criptato e lavorano per prevenire ulteriori frodi e attività criminali.

Blocks on the Blockchain: NFT Marketplace Brings Minecraft Integration

Japan’s largest Bitcoin exchange is expanding into the wide world of NFTs. Your future offer could also be attractive to gamers.

The Japanese Bitcoin exchange Coincheck is working on its own trading platform for non-fungible tokens (NFT). The company announced on September 9ththat tokens linked to the popular sandbox game Minecraft will also be tradable via the platform.

Coincheck entered into a cooperation with the blockchain developer Enjin

NFTs are unique Ethereum-based tokens that, due to their uniqueness, serve as proof of authenticity and ownership. This technology serves as the foundation for numerous applications. On the one hand, it allows shares in expensive assets such as real estate or works of art to be tokenized. Starting with the notorious CryptoKitties, however, there are also a large number of digital collectibles in the form of NFTs on the blockchains of this world.

So it seems only logical that Coincheck also wants a piece of the pie. With two million users, the company is considered the largest Bitcoin exchange in Japan. The planned NFT marketplace is to cover the entire range of tokenized assets. Your trade will be done with crypto currencies. The marketplace starts this year, Coincheck is currently looking for further partners.

Deposit crypto or fiat in the EU-licensed and regulated interest-bearing wallet from ArbiSmart. Earn a passive income.

Depending on your chosen currency, your deposit amount and your account type, you can earn up to 45% interest per year

While Coincheck is still working on the planned NFT platform, the plug-in developed by Enjin, with which Minecraft can connect to the Blockchian world, is already available today. EnjinCraft allows players to bring weapons and other in-game items in token form and store them in the Enjin Wallet. Blockchain assets can thus be traded within the game with Bitcoin and Co.

What has just been described is only a fraction of the possibilities for integration. Enjin is planning further and more sophisticated blockchain features for Minecraft under the name MyMetaverse. In the future, players should be able to purchase a piece of the game world on a server for tokens. For this, they can request tokens from their fellow players as a lease fee.

Minecraft had sold 200 million copies of the game as of May 2020, at the same time it had 125 million active users. This suggests that the Minecraft NFT business is certainly profitable.
