IMF: Spain, the economy hardest hit by the coronavirus

The effects of the coronavirus have been seen throughout the Iberian Peninsula.

According to its latest report, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) has announced that Spain is the worst of the advanced economies in 2020, with a forecast fall in gross domestic product (GDP) of 12.8 percent. It seems that the IMF is somewhat more pessimistic in this respect than the Spanish government, which is forecasting a contraction of 11.2 percent. In the case of several countries, estimates have improved. Four months ago, for example, estimates for the United States, Germany, France and Italy predicted deeper falls. However, today the figures are better than previously announced. Spain is the big exception. In your case, the situation is worse than expected. Why?

The Fund now forecasts a contraction of 12.8% compared to 8.3% for the euro area as a whole. Spain maintained three months of confinement last spring and had a disastrous summer for tourism. Now, to make matters worse, the upsurges are all over Spain, attacking the population mercilessly. The restrictions on mobility directly affect travel, tourism, hotels and consumption in general. In other words, the Spanish economy is at the mercy of the virus. If contagion subsides and the economy returns to normal sooner than expected, the IMF’s estimates could prove to be an exaggeration. On the other hand, if the pandemic worsens, these same estimates could fall short.

Of course, Spain is not on the list of the worst in the world. The Fund forecasts setbacks of 13.9 percent in Peru, 25 percent in Venezuela, 25 percent in Lebanon and 52 percent in Macao. However, no one will fall as much in Europe as Spain. Only San Marino (-11%) and Italy (-10.6%) are relatively close.

The impact of this crisis on world GDP has been tremendous. This has not been seen in the last 90 years. And the consequences on the labour market have been dramatic. According to the IMF, the unemployment rate in Spain will rise to 16.8% by the end of this year and the figure could remain the same at the beginning of 2021. This crisis is undoubtedly hitting low-income workers, young people and women a little harder.

In this regard, the economic recovery is likely to be long, uneven and uncertain. That is why it is important to maintain the liquidity injections to help the most affected enterprises and families. And it is vital to be flexible with debt holders and tax payers. Many promote absolute austerity at times like these, justifying the measure as a monetary good. The free market and the harshness of the currency above all. But such measures carry a very large humanitarian and economic cost.

Now, why Spain? First of all, practically one-third of Spain’s gross domestic product comes from activities dependent on mobility and agglomeration. Tourism, hotels, restaurants, etc. In other words, it is not entirely untrue to say that Spain is a great party. The coronavirus has been fatal for Spain due to the economic configuration of the country. Overdependence on tourism has been its condemnation. This reminds us of the importance of diversification.

Of course, part of the problem lies in the country’s economic structure, which is based on a medium or low value-added production model. This is the contrast with countries like Germany. Despite the fact that this crisis has distorted production and distribution chains in many sectors, in general terms, industry has not suffered as much. This could explain the advantageous situation of China, which is technically not in recession, with an estimated economic growth for this year of 1.9%.

In the opposite situation, we have most of the Latin American countries whose main economies depend on the export of raw materials. The crisis in Latin America is worse than in Spain. In this case, tourism is not so important. It is important, but the prices of raw materials on the international market in the region play a much more decisive role. Oil-exporting countries are being particularly hard hit. And countries with close relations with Asia are slightly better off.

Returning to the Spanish case, there is a third factor that could explain the particular vulnerability of the Spanish economy. This is its lack of uniformity. In Spain, there are regions with an unemployment rate of two percent and others with an unemployment rate of 40 percent. In all countries, you can see a kind of dual economy. This is the economy of the large urban centres and the economy of the peripheral regions that do not enjoy the same prosperity. The problem is that in Spain this is happening to an extreme degree. The reality in Madrid or Barcelona is radically different from the situation in places like Jaén or Cádiz.

The crisis of political leadership during this crisis has been evident. The Spanish government does not appear to be in control of the situation. In other words, this has got out of hand. It could be said that the crisis is threefold: health, economy, and politics. All this has exposed the old flaws in the Spanish economy. Obviously the country needs a plan.

Now, what can we individuals do? Beyond spending less and producing more, the average person can look for opportunities in the digital economy. It is also possible to find opportunities for arbitrage, taking advantage of the price distortion in world trade. Not to mention the opportunities to buy at excellent prices in some areas. Not everything is negative in this type of crisis.

The IBEX 35 has not recorded the same recovery as the S&P 500. This means that we cannot say that Spain is in the middle of a financial bubble. In other words, there are opportunities everywhere. It is possible that many companies will be in discount. Suddenly, it’s a good time to buy.

Despite the crisis, the Crypto Cash and fintech sector in Spain seems to be in good shape. Reports are very encouraging. Of course, some offices have been forced to make some layoffs, but, in general terms, Spanish start-ups are weathering the storm with great resolve.

The coronavirus has hit Spain very hard. Things are not easy. But the secret to overcoming a crisis is not discouragement. In fact, quite the opposite. We have to work harder than before to alleviate the situation. Crises also bring opportunities. It is a question of working hard and being vigilant. Crises come, but then they go. The secret is to keep fighting.

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

Sales record

Sorare has already sold more than 2.5 million euros in professional player cards. The site’s exchange volume increased from 25,000 euros in December 2019 to 760,000 euros in September.

Sales hit a new record in the last 7 days. According to the analysis site Nonfungible.com , users have carried out more than 3,500 transactions for a value of 170,000 euros . The average sales value reaches 58 dollars.

More surprisingly, player cards have even sold for over $ 7,000 as we can see below.

Paris Saint-Germain captain Marquinhos‘ single card traded for $ 7,800 at the start of October.

Prestige partnership

Recently, Sorare announced the signing of a license agreement with Paris Saint-Germain allowing the French startup to exploit the image of the club’s players in its game.

Sorare currently has 100 officially licensed clubs . Last year, top clubs like Atlético de Madrid, Juventus and AS Roma had already joined the platform.

After the raid by the US authorities, heads are falling at the Bitcoin giant BitMEX

The 7 Plagues of BitMEX – Fate continues to befall the leaders of the BitMEX platform. While its founder, Arthur Hayes, had to quit his position as CEO, the technical director of the crypto-exchange was arrested and then released on bail.

Arthur Hayes will no longer run BitMEX

On October 1, the US CFTC undermined the cryptocurrency derivatives platform BitMEX . The financial policeman has indeed filed a complaint on 3 charges against the leaders of crypto-exchanges.

In addition to causing a capital flight of $ 570 million in bitcoin (BTC), it completely called into question the management structure of 100x Group , the parent company of the crypto platform.

According to a statement published on the Bitcoin Profit app Vivien Khoo , the group’s former COO, becomes the new interim CEO .

“These changes in the direction of our company allow us to focus on our core business, which is to offer trading services to all our clients through the BitMEX platform (…). To us, business is business and we thank all customers for their continued support. »- David Wong, CEO of 100x Group

As this publication explains, „Founders Arthur Hayes and Samuel Reed have stepped back from their responsibilities as a general manager . “ The latter was also arrested by the authorities of the US state of Massachusetts, the day of the announcement of the complaint from the CFTC (October 1).

Samuel Reed released for $ 5 million

BitMEX’s now ex-CTO, Samuel Reed , was released on probation 2 days after his arrest, according to a crypto-media publication The Block.

Indeed, the District Court of Massachusetts would have approved on October 3 his request for release on bail , request that Samuel Reed had formulated upon his arrest.

Although in the amount of $ 5 million , the bond was only secured by a deposit of $ 500,000 in cash . According to The Block again, „the passports of Reed and his wife were also seized“ .

In exchange for his release, Samuel Reed also agreed to appear in court on his own for all legal proceedings and, if found guilty, to surrender to serve his sentence.

Even if, for now, “ business is business “ for BitMEX, the platform must hasten to put in place regulatory compliance protocols, in particular for the fight against money laundering. As for the 5 founders and ex-leaders of the platform, there is little chance that American justice will leave them alone anytime soon.

Bullen steigen aus BitMEX Bitcoin-Terminmarkt aus

Kryptowährungshändler scheinen Long-Positionen in Bitcoin Perpetual Futures aufzulösen, die an der Krypto-Derivatebörse BitMEX notiert sind, die von den Regulierungsbehörden beschuldigt wurde, illegale Transaktionen in den USA zu erleichtern.

Am Donnerstag reichte die U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) eine Zivilklage gegen die Börse ein, während das Justizministerium (DOJ) Strafanzeige erstattete und vier Gründer und Führungskräfte von BitMEX beschuldigte, sich den Regeln zur Verhinderung von Geldwäsche zu entziehen.
Seit den Ankündigungen hat BitMEX nach Angaben des Blockchain-Nachrichtendienstes Chainalysis einen Abfluss von mehr als 40.000 Bitcoins erlebt, die nach Angaben des Blockchain-Nachrichtendienstes Chainalysis derzeit mehr als 422 Millionen Dollar wert sind.
Offene Positionen in BitMEX-Futures sind seit den Ankündigungen von CFTC und DOJ um mehr als 22% von 592 Millionen Dollar auf 460 Millionen Dollar zurückgegangen und liegen mehr als 50% unter dem Höchststand von 1 Milliarde Dollar vom 1. September.

Laut der Datenquelle Skew ist die annualisierte rollierende Dreimonats-Perpetuals-Basis (Futures ohne Verfall) in den letzten 24 Stunden von 6% auf 1,84% zurückgegangen.
Die Basis bezieht sich auf die Differenz zwischen dem Futures-Preis und dem Spot-Preis.
Im Wesentlichen ist die BitMEX-Futures-Prämie in den letzten 24 Stunden von 6% auf 1,84% zurückgegangen. Mit anderen Worten, die Long-Positionen werden abgebaut.

Futures werden in der Regel mit einem Aufschlag auf den Spotpreis gehandelt, und der Netto-Kaufdruck für Futures bestimmt den Aufschlag.

Die Differenz zwischen der von anderen Börsen und BitMEX angebotenen Prämie hat sich in den letzten 24 Stunden vergrößert.
Das deutet darauf hin, dass die Händler ihre zinsbullischen fremdfinanzierten Positionen dringend von der BitMEX entfernen müssen, die sich in einem langen, langwierigen Kampf mit den US-Regulierungsbehörden befinden könnte.
„BitMEX, mit über 70 Milliarden Dollar Monatsumsatz, verfügt über genügend Ressourcen, um weiterhin mit der CFTC und dem DOJ zu kämpfen und mit den besten Anwälten der Branche zusammenzuarbeiten. Sie haben bereits angekündigt, die Anschuldigungen zu dementieren, und dies könnte sich zu einem ziemlich langen Kampf entwickeln“, sagte Alex Melikhov, CEO und Gründer von Equilibrium und der EOSDT stablecoin.
Der Marktanteil von BitMEX ist jedoch rückläufig.

„Das Open Interest nimmt seit Anfang September ab, und die Bedeutung von BitMEX wird immer geringer“, sagte Patrick Heusser, Senior Cryptocurrency Trader bei Crypto Broker AG in Zürich, gegenüber CoinDesk in einem Twitter-Chat.

Bitcoin hat sich angesichts eines düsteren Nachrichtenzyklus gut geschlagen, während das stabile Münzvermögen im Krypto-Ökosystem weiter wächst.

Bitcoin (BTC) handelte um 10.515 Dollar per 20:00 UTC (16:00 Uhr ET). Rückgang um 0,44% gegenüber den vorangegangenen 24 Stunden.
Die 24-Stunden-Reichweite von Bitcoin: $10.362-$10.667
BTC über seinem gleitenden 10-Tage-Durchschnitt, aber unter dem 50-Tage-Durchschnitt, ein Seitwärtssignal für Markttechniker.

Der Preis von Bitcoin stolperte in den frühen Morgenstunden des Freitags und fiel an Spot-Börsen wie Coinbase gegen 5:00 UTC (1:00 Uhr ET) auf bis zu 10.362 $, bevor er bis zum Redaktionsschluss auf 10.515 $ stieg.

Trotz des kontinuierlichen Stroms negativer Nachrichten in der vergangenen Woche blieben die Krypto-Märkte widerstandsfähig, so Zachary Friedman, Chief Operating Officer des Brokerage-Unternehmens Global Digital Assets.

„Wenn wir zurückblicken, haben wir einen Hack von Kucoin, eine große BitMEX-Klage und sogar Ärger auf den traditionellen Märkten durch die Ankündigung gesehen, dass [US-Präsident Donald] Trump COVID-19 unter Vertrag genommen hat“, sagte Friedman. „Historisch gesehen hätten diese drei kollektiven Ereignisse die Märkte ins Taumeln gebracht. Dies zeigt, dass der Markt zunehmend mit mehr bullischen Anlegern gefüllt ist, die an die Fundamentaldaten glauben.

Der Rückgang von Bitcoin auf 10.362 Dollar am Freitag ist der niedrigste Preis seit dem 24. September, lange bevor der jüngste Strom schlechter Nachrichten einsetzte, und vielleicht ein Zeichen für die Fähigkeit der ältesten Kryptowährung der Welt, sich schnell zu erholen.

KISS rocker Gene Simmons advocates for cryptocurrency

On Twitter, Cameron Winklevoss spoke about the need for better financial inclusion of cryptocurrencies.

Co-founder of the KISS group, Gene Simmons has expressed his support for Mr Winklevoss.

Mr. Simmons is not new to cryptocurrency, nor to investing

Gene Simmons, co-founder, former bassist and co-singer of rock band KISS, has a soft spot for cryptocurrencies.

Mr Simmons, who is no stranger to Crypto Method, responded to a tweet from Cameron Winklevoss in which the Gemini co-founder challenged the industry to make it easier to buy BTC and ETH.

Mr Winklevoss, in his conversation thread on Twitter, identified the biggest challenges the crypto industry faces, and it’s not the DeFi space. He stated :

But getting people into this new system is the biggest challenge we face as an industry.

Cameron Winklevoss noted that users find it easier to buy Bitcoin or ETH using existing financial systems than if they don’t have a bank account at all. In such a case, it would be “difficult to bring funds into the crypto sector”.

As the manager of a cryptocurrency exchange, he probably knows what he’s talking about. The billionaire Bitcoin thus urged the crypto community to change the situation.

Gene Simmons is up to the challenge, and has answered Winklevoss‘ call to act. The legendary KISS member, who has nearly 900,000 followers on Twitter, however was silent on details.

It is not yet known whether he really got caught up in the game. The crypto community has applauded him for being an advocate of hard money such as Bitcoin, however.

I will do it. I do it

The fixed supply of 21 million BTC has become one of its key features of Bitcoin, especially as global central banks feverishly print fiat currencies . A new wave of fear of missing out on an opportunity (FOMO) seems to be taking shape.

A bitcoin shortage is coming soon.

Rising crypto demand

Lately, the demand for digital goods has increased among institutional and retail investors. For example, the company MicroStrategy

, a publicly traded company with a market capitalization of $ 1.4 billion, revealed on September 14 that it had just purchased 16,796 bitcoins.
This brings its annual total to 38,250 bitcoins for an amount of $ 425 million including fees and expenses.

On September 14, 2020, MicroStrategy completed the acquisition of an additional 16,796 bitcoins for an aggregate purchase price of $ 175 million. To date, we have purchased a total of 38,250 bitcoins for an aggregate purchase price of $ 425 million including fees and expenses.

And it’s not just about institutions. Jim Cramer, host of CNBC’s “Mad Money”, also took the plunge, telling Cameron’s brother Tyler Winklevoss that he was hoarding BTC in a fund for his children’s financial security. .

Another Wall Street legend, @jimcramer, is a follower of #Bitcoin. Jim, Paul Tudor Jones, and so many other seasoned investors understand that this is your best hedge against inflation. Booyah!

A feeling of déjà vu

This is not Mr. Simmons‘ first crypto rodeo. Fate wanted him to tell TheStreet, founded by Jim Cramer, the new Bitcoin bull, that he was interested in Bitcoin in 2017 as “a piece of the puzzle”.

He prided himself on a diversified portfolio, saying the right way to invest is to spread the risk across multiple assets, much like a person betting in Las Vegas. He even expressed interest in a future KISS coin at the time, before the ICO bubble burst.

Rapper TI Cryptocurrency Fraud: Aangeklaagd en gezuiverd 75.000 dollar door SEC.

Rapper TI en vier andere mensen, waaronder filmproducent Ryan Felton, zijn door de Amerikaanse Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) aangeklaagd wegens frauduleuze muntverkoop. TI, of Tip zoals de rapper ook wel bekend is, wordt ook beboet door de effectenregulator.

Rapper TI en filmproducent in rekening gebracht

De SEC kondigde vrijdag de aanklacht tegen rapper en acteur Clifford Harris Jr. (vaak bekend als TI of Tip), filmproducent Ryan Felton, en drie anderen meer dan twee frauduleuze eerste muntaanbiedingen (ICO’s) aan. De SEC heeft ook twee bedrijven aangeklaagd, Flik en Coinspark, die de verkoop hebben geleid.

Rapper TI, die de SEC in haar opdracht omschreef als „een bekende muzikant, acteur en producent„, nam deel aan het aanbod en de verkoop van flikmunten, die ongeregistreerde waardepapieren zijn. Beleggers konden deze penningen kopen en verkopen op ten minste twee cryptocurrency beurzen met behulp van ETH en Bitcoin Up, de SEC in detail. „Promotiemateriaal beschreef Flik als ‚Netflix op de blokketen‘ – een bedrijf dat een streaming mediaplatform zou bieden met producten en diensten die met flikmunten kunnen worden gekocht.

SEC beweert dat tussen 20 Augustus en 20 Sept. 2017, de rapper deze penningen op zijn sociale media rekeningen aanbood en verkocht, ten onrechte claimend een Flik mede-eigenaar te zijn, en een beroemdheidsvriend vroeg om de verkoop op sociale media te bevorderen, die flik TI’s ,,nieuwe onderneming.“ noemde. De verkoop van Flik hief ongeveer 539 ETH op, met een waarde van ongeveer $164.665 vanaf 20 Sept. 2017, de SEC-ordestaten, die toevoegen:

De bestelling van SEC tegen T.I. vereist dat hij een $75.000 burgerlijke monetaire boete betaalt en niet deelneemt aan het aanbod of de verkoop van digital-asset effecten voor ten minste vijf jaar.

TI liet niet toe noch ontkende de bevindingen van SEC, Reuters meldde Vrijdag. Zijn advocaat Henry E. Mazurek zegt dat de rapper spijt had dat hij betrokken raakte bij Felton, die hij „geloofde een lokale ondernemer te zijn die het voor nieuwe artiesten gemakkelijker probeert te maken om de muziekindustrie in te gaan,“ de vervoerde nieuwsafzet. De advocaat beweert bovendien dat TI „nooit een dollar“ heeft ontvangen van de mislukte onderneming van Felton.

Bovendien detailleerde SEC dat de filmproducent Felton naar verluidt beloofde om een digitaal stromend platform voor Flik en een cryptografisch handelsplatform voor Coinspark te bouwen, maar hij verduisterde de ingezamelde fondsen. Hij droeg in het geheim de flik-munten over aan zichzelf en verkocht ze voor 2,2 miljoen dollar aan winst. Hij hield zich ook bezig met manipulatieve handel om de prijs van de vonkenmunten op te blazen en gebruikte de slecht ontvangen winst om een Ferrari, een huis van een miljoen dollar, diamanten sieraden en andere luxegoederen te kopen.

De klacht klaagt Felton aan voor het overtreden van de registratie-, fraude- en anti-manipulatiebepalingen van de federale effectenwetten. Flik en Coinspark worden beschuldigd van het overtreden van de registratie- en antifraudebepalingen.

Naast Felton hebben alle personen ingestemd met schikkingen om de aanklacht tegen hen op te lossen. Ondertussen heeft de Amerikaanse procureur-generaal voor het Northern District of Georgia tegelijkertijd een strafrechtelijke aanklacht tegen Felton ingediend. De voorgestelde schikkingen moeten door de rechtbank worden goedgekeurd.

De federale effectenwetten bieden dezelfde bescherming aan beleggers in effecten van digitale activa als aan beleggers in meer traditionele vormen van effecten,“ zei Carolyn M. Welshhans, Associate Director in de Division of Enforcement.

Billig Bitcoin-gruvedrift kan komme til å bli slutt i Mongolia

Bitcoin-gruveselskaper i Indre Mongolia er blitt lagt merke til at strømtilskudd snart kan forsvinne, noe som øker prisene med en tredjedel.

Prisen på strøm i Indre Mongolia er veldig lav for gruvearbeidere i cryptocurrency.

Regjeringen er innstilt på å fjerne subsidier, noe som vil øke prisen med nesten en tredel

Prisen vil forbli lav etter internasjonale standarder, men høyere enn i andre deler av Bitcoin Era.

Det indre Mongolia avdelingen for industri og informasjonsteknologi har angivelig truet med å fjerne elektrisitetssubsidier for gruveselskaper i cryptocurrency, noe som vil øke prisene med nesten en tredjedel.

Avdelingen sendte ut et varsel til Inner Mongolia Electric Power Group om at 21 av 30 selskaper som ble besøkt for inspeksjon i 2019, ikke oppfylte kvalifikasjonene for å motta priser de kan få fra å delta i det indre Mongolia Electric Power Multilateral Trading Market, kinesisk reporter Colin Wu rapportert .

Den semi-autonome regionen i Kina, landets tredje største region når det gjelder areal, har hatt et opp-ned forhold til cryptocurrency gruvearbeidere. Noen i de lokale myndighetene har sett cryptocurrency som en måte å bringe penger inn i økonomien; mens indre Mongolia er rik på ressurser, kan dens nær-arktiske geografi begrense veksten.

Den lokale regjeringen har i flere år gitt Bitmain og cryptocurrency gruvebedrifter tilgang til 30% av standardprisen på strøm via handelsmarkedet. Som et resultat liker krypto gruvearbeidere i indre Mongolia noen av de laveste industrielle elektrisitetsprisene i verden.

Kina selv har allerede noen av de laveste strømprisene i noe land, og tar ikke hensyn til statlige subsidier eller andre insentiver

I følge rapportene hopper den gjennomsnittlige kilowattime gruvearbeiderne å betale til 3,8 RMB / kWh fra et gjennomsnitt på 2-3 RMB / kWh. Selv om det fremdeles er konkurransedyktig internasjonalt, er dette langt mer enn hva gruvearbeidere betaler i vannkraftrik Shichuan, der velsignelsene fra kraftig regn, steineteografi og et for stort tilbud av kraftgenererende dammer betyr at strøm kan koste så lite som 0,3 RMB / kWh i løpet av regionens høye regntid.

Mens dette kraftoverskuddet har fått den kinesiske gruveindustrien til å klynge seg i regionen, har den fortsatte trusselen om ekstremvær fått noen gruvearbeidere til å søke alternativer.

Imidlertid har lokkingen av billig kraft hittil forhindret en utvandring.

Prédiction de prix Bitcoin: BTC / USD établit un nouveau sommet; Toucher le niveau de 11450 $

Le graphique journalier nous révèle que la dynamique haussière est particulièrement forte mais une consolidation saine est nécessaire.

Le BTC / USD évolue dans une tendance haussière quotidienne depuis quelques jours, mais ne s’est pas encore consolidé

Bien que ce ne soit pas nécessairement mauvais pour la pièce, car la cassure au-dessus de 10000 $ était extrêmement importante à l’époque. Le prochain niveau de résistance est en hausse à 12 000 $, un niveau psychologique suivi de 12 300 $, ce qui se trouve être un sommet de deux ans. Cependant, le prix du Bitcoin est actuellement de 11316 $ et le drapeau haussier quotidien est au bord d’une évasion.

De plus, les traders peuvent continuer à voir un petit rejet puisque Bitcoin Fortune est déjà assez surchargé. Le RSI quotidien est toujours d’environ 82 points et le volume des transactions augmente. À la baisse, le soutien initial est créé par les 10 800 $ psychologiques. Il est renforcé par la moyenne mobile sur 9 jours en dessous de cette barrière Un mouvement durable en dessous de cette barrière rapportera 10 300 $, 10 100 $ et 9 900 $ qui ont servi de forte résistance avant la percée.

Néanmoins, si les haussiers montrent un engagement plus fort, le BTC / USD pourrait atteindre un autre niveau de résistance à 12300 $, 12500 $ et 12700 $

Avec un affichage aussi puissant de la part des acheteurs, il est possible que le mouvement déclenche un renversement plus important de la tendance baissière qui commençait à s’imposer.

En regardant le graphique sur 1 heure, le prix du Bitcoin se négocie actuellement autour de 11413 $ et au-dessus des moyennes mobiles sur 9 jours et 21 jours après un renversement par rapport à un minimum quotidien de 10972 $ aujourd’hui. Pendant ce temps, nous pouvons voir que l’offre haussière devient lourde sur le marché tandis que les baissiers essaient également de faire baisser le prix.

De plus, si les acheteurs continuent de renforcer et de dynamiser le marché, ils peuvent pousser davantage le prix au niveau de résistance de 11800 $. Par conséquent, briser la résistance mentionnée pourrait également permettre aux taureaux de tester les 11600 $ et plus. En d’autres termes, le RSI (14) se déplace au-dessus du niveau 64, mais passer en dessous du niveau 60 peut faire glisser le prix au niveau de support de 11200 $ et moins.

EE.UU. derriba 25 millones de dólares de la operación de cajeros automáticos de Bitcoin, incauta 17 máquinas

El gobierno de EE.UU. ha derribado una operación de cajeros automáticos de 25 millones de dólares y ha incautado 17 máquinas junto con algunas criptodivisas. El Departamento de Justicia dice que el hombre detrás de esta operación de cajeros automáticos sin licencia ha accedido a declararse culpable y se enfrenta a 30 años de prisión.

EE.UU. desmantela la operación de cajeros automáticos de Bitcoin

El Departamento de Justicia de EE.UU. (DOJ) anunció el miércoles que un hombre de California, Kais Mohammad, ha admitido haber operado una red de cajeros automáticos sin licencia de Bitcoin Code que „lavó millones de dólares de bitcoin y dinero en efectivo para beneficio de los criminales“.

Este hombre de 39 años poseía y operaba un negocio de servicios monetarios de bitcoin sin licencia llamado Herocoin donde ofrecía cambiar bitcoin por dinero en efectivo, cobrando comisiones de hasta el 25%, según detalló el Departamento de Justicia. Anunciaba su negocio de intercambio en línea usando el apodo „Superman29“, pero atendía a clientes en todo el sur de California. Por lo general, se reunía con los clientes en un lugar público e intercambiaba bitcoin por ellos de hasta 25.000 dólares sin preguntar por la fuente de sus fondos.

Más tarde, Mohammad compró y publicitó una red de quioscos de cajeros automáticos bidireccionales Bitcoin situados en centros comerciales, gasolineras y tiendas de conveniencia en los condados de Los Ángeles, Orange, Riverside y San Bernardino. El Departamento de Justicia describió: „Mohammad procesaba la criptodivisa depositada en los cajeros, suministraba a los mismos el dinero que los clientes retiraban y mantenía el software del servidor que operaba los cajeros“.

Según el Departamento de Justicia, Mohammad sabía que Herocoin necesitaba registrarse en la Red de Ejecución de Crímenes Financieros del Departamento del Tesoro de EE.UU. (FinCEN), pero eligió no registrarse ni cumplir con las normas contra el lavado de dinero. Finalmente se registró después de que la FinCEN se pusiera en contacto con él „pero siguió sin cumplir plenamente con la ley federal relativa al blanqueo de dinero, la realización de la debida diligencia y la denuncia de clientes sospechosos“, señaló el Departamento de Justicia.

Durante el curso de su investigación, las fuerzas del orden realizaron múltiples transacciones de intercambio de monedas con Mohammad. También realizó múltiples transacciones de intercambio de bitcoin en persona con agentes encubiertos que dijeron que sus ganancias provenían de actividades ilegales.

El Departamento de Justicia dijo que Mohammad nunca presentó un informe de transacciones monetarias o un informe de actividades sospechosas por estas transacciones.

El departamento añadió que en las próximas semanas se espera que se declare culpable de „cargos penales federales por operar un negocio ilegal de servicios monetarios de moneda virtual que intercambió hasta 25 millones de dólares -incluso en nombre de delincuentes- a través de transacciones en persona y una red de quioscos tipo cajero automático de Bitcoin“. El Departamento de Justicia elaboró:

Al declararse culpable, Mohammad se enfrentará a una sentencia máxima de 30 años en una prisión federal. Como parte del acuerdo de declaración, Mohammad ha aceptado renunciar al dinero en efectivo, la criptografía y los 17 cajeros automáticos de monedas de bits que operaba como parte de su negocio.

Bitcoin SV Análise de preços: 03 de Janeiro

O mercado Bitcoin SV tem sido altamente correlacionado com o mercado Bitcoin e o preço actual tem vindo a mover-se de acordo com o Bitcoin. Embora o mercado não espelhasse exactamente o rally no mercado de BTC, continuava a movimentar-se mais alto e com menos volume.

Gráfico de quatro horas do BSV

Fonte: BSVUSD sobre TradingView

O gráfico de BSV indicava movimento lateral para o preço da moeda. Apesar da volatilidade no mercado criptográfico, o preço da Bitcoin SV não registou uma mudança drástica. Na altura da imprensa, uma vez que o preço da crypto trader estava próximo de testar a resistência a $171, enquanto era negociado a $168. O mercado estava a sofrer uma imensa pressão de compra na altura em que foi escrito.

Raciocínio

O Índice de Força Relativa tem vindo a aproximar-se da zona de sobre-compra à medida que os compradores inundam o mercado de BSV. Como a moeda consegue ultrapassar a resistência actual, o RSI pode acabar no território sobre-comprado, o que pode desencadear uma pressão de venda.

Ao mesmo tempo, o dinheiro tem vindo a fluir para o mercado de forma drástica. O Chaikin Money Flow foi notado como estando acima da linha zero e estava a indicar força no mercado. Ultrapassou a resistência e continuou um pico para cima, confirmando a alta no mercado CMF.

Posição

Entrada: $167.50
Stop-Loss: $171.403
Take-Profit: $161,36
Risco a Recompensa: 1,57

Conclusão

O movimento ascendente do BSV pode ser restringido a longo prazo. Os indicadores têm vindo a projectar compradores de grande escala no mercado, no entanto, poderá ficar saturado, resultando no colapso do preço do BSV. Embora haja uma tendência de alta no mercado, poderá haver uma correcção no mercado em breve.
