Ethereum 2.0 starts gradually: deposit contracts now online

The first December is the planned start date.

Ethereum 2.0 Phase 0 has now been formalised and is expected to start around 1 December. The deposit contract is now online and you can now collect the necessary funds to trigger the staking.

A recent report from the Ethereum Foundation on Wednesday explains how the Genesis process is expected to proceed.

People interested in staking can now deposit their 32 Ether (ETH) into the contract via the special launchpad and prepare for the launch.

The contract must collect 16384 deposits of 32 ETH each, i.e. a total of 524,288 ETH or about 200 million US dollars, in order to launch this feature.

The required sum must be raised at least seven days before the expected launch date on 1 December. If this is not the case, the launch will be postponed to seven days after this threshold is reached.

After many years of anticipation and delays, the announcement is the first clearly defined date for the launch of Ethereum 2.0.

The community has signalled its willingness, but there could still be potential problems with the clients. The reliability of the Medalla test network has been faltering in recent days and often failed due to participation problems. Many people believe that this is due to the lack of staking incentives. But some problems with the software have also been reported. Nevertheless, the team believes that most software clients are ready for the Mainnet launch.

The end of this journey is also the beginning of a new one. The start of Phase 0 will not directly affect the existing Ethereum block chain, which will continue to operate with the proof-of-work protocol as before.

The transitions from Phase 1 and Phase 2, which are to follow in the coming years, will eventually convert the existing Ethereum infrastructure to the new, staking consensus.

ConsenSys is working with Banque de France on the digital euro

The blockchain company ConsenSys is becoming more and more active when it comes to CBDCs.

The Ethereum software company ConsenSys has just agreed on its sixth central bank project

On October 28 , the blockchain organization announced that it would experiment with a digital euro with Société Générale Forge.

Société Générale Forge is the digital capital market platform of the large financial services company Société Générale Group. SG Forge was involved in the issuance of a 100 million euro bond as a security token on the Bitcoin System in spring 2019 . The platform specializes in building institutional models for regulated securities token operations that have been registered on blockchain.

Along with Accenture, Euroclear, HSBC and others, SG Forge is one of the main partners chosen by the Banque de France to experiment with central bank digital currencies . In May of this year, the Banque de France, Societe Generale SFH and SG Forge issued a tokenized bond for 40 million euros as part of a pilot project, which is processed via a CBDC.

As part of its work with SG Forge, ConsenSys will provide its technology and expertise for joint experiments related to CBDC issuance and management, delivery versus payment, and cross-ledger interoperability

In the run-up to the SG Forge project, ConsenSys announced that it had been awarded the contract to lead the second implementation phase of the Ithanon-Lionrock project. This is a cross-border CBDC payment network between Thailand and Hong Kong.

ConsenSys was also involved in CBDC development under the Central Bank of Singapore’s Ubin project and the Central Bank of South Africa’s Khokha project .

Bitcoin Mining Rigs kämpfen um Gewinne, obwohl die Haschrate von BTC ein Allzeithoch erreicht hat

Die Haschrate von Bitcoin kletterte diese Woche auf ein Allzeithoch (ATH) und erreichte am 14. Oktober 166 Exahasch pro Sekunde (EH/s). In der Zwischenzeit profitiert trotz des jüngsten Preisanstiegs und des Haschisch-ATH am Mittwoch bei den aktuellen Bitcoin-Kursen nur eine kleine Gruppe von Bergbauanlagen der nächsten Generation.

Der Preis für Bitmünze (BTC) pendelt knapp über der 11.000-Dollar-Region, und in den letzten Tagen hat die Haschrate des Netzes einen neuen ATH erreicht. Zum Zeitpunkt des Verfassens dieses Artikels schwankt die Haschrate von BTC zwischen 130 und 140 Exahash pro Sekunde (EH/s), und am Mittwochabend (ET) lag die Metrik bei über 166 EH/s.

Interessanterweise hat sich der Anstieg fortgesetzt, obwohl die Netzschwierigkeiten von BTC ebenfalls einen ATH von 19,69T erreicht haben. Das bedeutet, dass es schwieriger als je zuvor ist, einen Block zu finden, der das BTC-Netz vermint, aber dies hat die Haschrate insgesamt nicht verändert. Die nächste Änderung des BTC-Schwierigkeitsgrades soll innerhalb von zwei Tagen um ein Haar eintreten.

Am Donnerstag, dem 15. Oktober 2020, gibt es 18 bekannte Bergbau-Pools, die an der Kette haschen, und ein einziges unbekanntes Bergbauunternehmen in der Gruppe. Zu den fünf führenden Bergbau-Pools am Donnerstagnachmittag gehören Btc.com (23,9 EH/s), F2pool (20,6 EH/s), Poolin (18,7 EH/s), Antpool (15,9 EH/s) und Huobi (11,3 EH/s).

Betrachtet man den Echtzeit-Aggregator für Bergbau-Hardware auf asicvalue.com, bei dem der Filter auf 0,06 $ pro Kilowattstunde (kWh) eingestellt ist und nur SHA256-Bergleute berücksichtigt werden, so zeigt das Webportal, dass heute nur 13 Bergbauanlagen um mehr als 2 $ pro Tag profitieren.

Es gibt 30 SHA256-Bergbauplattformen, die einen Gewinn von 0,11 bis 1,89 $ pro Tag bei 0,06 $ pro kWh erzielen. Wenn die Stromkosten mit 0,12 $ pro kWh verdoppelt werden, dann werden nur zwei der 43 Bergbauanlagen, die 0,06 $ pro kWh Gewinn erzielen, davon profitieren.

Zu den beiden Spitzenmaschinen gehören der Antminer S19 Pro von Bitmain (110 TH/s) und der Microbt Whatsminer M30S++ (112 TH/s). Der Whatsminer M30S+ folgt neben dem Antminer S19, dem Whatsminer M30S, dem Antminer T19 und dem AvalonMiner 1166 Pro.

Eine Reihe anderer Kryptocurrency-Algorithmen zeigen höhere Gewinne als der SHA256-Konsensalgorithmus. Zum Zeitpunkt der Veröffentlichung zeigen die Algorithmen Equihash, Ethash, Tensority und Eaglestrong größere Gewinne für Bergleute, die diese Art von Münzen fördern. Gegenwärtig benötigen Bergleute, die SHA256-Münzen (BTC, BCH, BSV) fördern, etwa 0,06 $ pro kWh, um anständige Gewinne von über 2 $ pro Tag zu erzielen.

Darüber hinaus wäre es für die Bitcoin Pro-Minenarbeiter besser, wenn der Preis um 1.100 $ höher wäre als heute, so dass sich die Bergarbeiter von der Halbierung der Belohnung für den Mai-Block erholen können. Im Februar schätzte der Anbieter von Blockkettenanalysen Tradeblock die Kosten für den Abbau nach der Halbierung auf etwa 12.500 $ pro BTC.

Gegenwärtig liegt der durchschnittliche Wert der Belohnung auf Münzbasis während der letzten 24 Stunden bei etwa 71.390 US-Dollar pro Block, wobei etwa 6.189 US-Dollar (0,54 BTC) an Transaktionsgebühren anfallen. Da die Haschrate der BTC auf ein neues Niveau ansteigt, wird die erwartete Schwierigkeitsanpassung am 17. Oktober noch ein wenig höher ausfallen als heute.

Bitcoin Defi: Intelligente Vertragsplattform RSK integriert ETH-basiertes Stablecoin-DAI

Am 6. Oktober 2020 gab das Entwicklungsteam RIF (RSK-Infrastrukturrahmen) bekannt, dass der DAI-Stablecoin des Makerdao-Projekts nun über das intelligente Vertragsprotokoll RSK verfügbar ist. Nach Angaben der Software-Ingenieure haben die RIF-Entwickler die Token-Brücke RSK-Ethereum genutzt, so dass Einzelpersonen nun die auf Ethereum basierende Stablecoin über eine Vielzahl von dezentralen Anwendungen (dapps) nutzen können.

Das von Bitcoin (BTC) unterstützte intelligente Vertragsprotokoll RSK hat sich in den letzten sieben Monaten stetig in Richtung des dezentralen Finanzraums (defi) bewegt. News.Bitcoin.com berichtete über die Defi-Bemühungen der RSK und eine Reihe RSK-basierter Defi-Projekte, die sich bereits in der freien Wildbahn befinden. Am Dienstag gaben Software-Ingenieure bekannt, dass das intelligente Vertragsprojekt nun Makerdaos DAI-Stablecoin unterstützt. Die RIF-Entwickler glauben, dass die neu hinzugefügte Unterstützung die Defi-Dienste in der BTC-Kette stärken wird.

Um die DAI-Stablecoin-Unterstützung auszuführen, nutzten die RIF-Ingenieure die Token-Brücke RSK-Ethereum.

Jetzt, da das DAI in die RSK integriert ist, kann die Stablecoin für BTC-unterstützte Defi-Dienstleistungen wie Kreditaufnahme, Kreditvergabe, Liquiditätspools und Absteckung genutzt werden. Rune Christensen, Mitbegründer von Makerdao und der Maker Foundation, erklärte, dass die neue Integration des DAI die Zugänglichkeit der Defi verbessert.

„Die RIF-Integration des DAI schafft eine neue Welt von Möglichkeiten für die Bitcoin-Gemeinschaft, an der Defi teilzunehmen“, sagte Christensen während der Ankündigung.

Nach Angaben des RIF-Entwicklungsteams nutzen bereits eine Reihe von Dapps die Stablecoin über BTC- und ETH-unterstützte Defi-Dienste. Dazu gehören Projekte wie Rskswap, Aave, Sovryn, Avaldao und Chainlink. Die Schöpfer von Rskswap haben Liquiditätspools für RIF-DAI und RBTC-DAI in Anspruch genommen und behaupten, dass man mit dem Stablecoin 1000-mal weniger Geld ausgeben kann als mit der Ethereum-Kette. Rskswap ist eine Abspaltung der beliebten dezentralisierten Tauschbörse (dex) Uniswap auf Ethereum-Basis.

Iovlabs, die Muttergesellschaft der intelligenten Vertragsplattform RSK von Bitcoin und ihres Infrastructure Framework (RIF), ist der Ansicht, dass die Integration des DAI das Defi-Wachstum in der BTC-Kette fördern wird. Iovlabs-Mitbegründer und CEO, Diego Gutierrez Zaldivar, betonte, dass „die Integration des DAI ein weiterer wichtiger Schritt zur Einführung von Bitcoin defi ist“.

„Wir sind zuversichtlich, dass das Wachstum des Bitcoin-Ökosystems und seiner Defi-Möglichkeiten gerade erst begonnen hat und noch viel mehr kommen wird“, fügte Zaldivar hinzu.

Nach Angaben des RIF-Teams wurde die Bitcoin-Ethereum-Brücke vom Maker Foundation Integrations Team überprüft.

„Die Interoperabilitätsbrücke sperrt das ursprüngliche Token wie DAI auf der Ethereum-Blockkette und prägt gleichzeitig ein ERC777-‚Side-Token‘, das sich frei im RSK-Netzwerk bewegen kann“, schlussfolgern die Software-Ingenieure des RIF. „Dadurch bleibt der bestehende Bestand an Token erhalten, während sie zwischen den Ketten verteilt werden können.

Crypto artwork sold for $ 130,000 at Christie’s auction

The NFT is „a symbolic expression of Satoshi’s vision, created from the very code that is at the beginning of it all“.

Christie’s auction house has announced it has sold a digital portrait of the Bitcoin code for more than $ 130,000

It is the first time that a non-fungible token (NFT) has been auctioned at a major auction house. The Crypto Genius review exceeded all expectations.

According to the auction house by an unknown buyer „Block 21“ for 131,250 dollars at Christie’s has on October 7 bought . The work consists of a physical work of art and an NFT depicting Satoshi Nakamoto. It was part of the so-called „Post-War and Contemporary Auction“ day. The auctions started at $ 22,000.

The artwork of Ben Gentilli , which he created as part of the Robert Alice project is one of 40 works of a series and contains exactly 322,048 digits of Satoshi’s original Bitcoin ( BTC ) codes. The series with the title „Portraits of a Mind“ shows the 12.3 million digits of the original code of the cryptocurrency, which were individually engraved and painted on 40 different circular panels with a length of over 50 meters.

Christie’s auction included only one of the paintings in the series, „Block 21

The name is a nod to the scarcity of Bitcoin, which is limited to 21 million coins. Binance founder Changpeng Zhao and Bloq chairman Matthew Rozsak are also believed to have bought pieces from Portraits of a Mind.

„The work is a symbolic expression of Satoshi’s vision, created for exactly the code at the beginning of it all is,“ as on the website of Robert Alice ’s . „Portraits of a Mind explores the multifaceted identities of Satoshi Nakamoto and in turn reflects the nature of identity as well as the portrait in a new, decentralized age.“

The most expensive digital artwork ever sold at auction was Matt Kane’s NFT Right Place & Right Time . This was based on the fluctuating Bitcoin rate and was sold for $ 101,593 in September.

$ 440.000.000 em Bitcoin sai do BitMEX enquanto Crypto Traders respondem a alegações de CFTC

Grandes e pequenos negociantes de BitMEX estão retirando o Bitcoin Era da bolsa a uma taxa rápida com as notícias dos embaraços legais da plataforma de negociação.

Na quinta-feira, a US Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) anunciou que está cobrando cinco entidades operacionais BitMEX e os três fundadores da plataforma de negociação de criptografia, Arthur Hayes, Benjamin Delo e Samuel Reed, pela violação de vários regulamentos da CFTC

O Departamento de Justiça dos EUA também acusou os três fundadores e seu chefe de desenvolvimento de negócios, Gregory Dwyer, de violação da Lei de Sigilo Bancário.

De acordo com o economista-chefe do Chainalysis, Philip Gradwell, mais de 40.000 Bitcoin deixaram a bolsa do BitMEX menos de 24 horas após a divulgação das notícias das alegações, totalizando aproximadamente $ 440.000.000 em retiradas

“Desde as 17:00 UTC de ontem, 41.838 bitcoin foram retirados do BitMEX em 4.547 transferências. Metade das transferências foi de 0,25 bitcoin ou menos, e o maior 1% das transferências foi responsável por 63% do bitcoin retirado. Muitos pequenos comerciantes e alguns grandes jogadores se retiraram. ”

Em um tweet subsequente, Gradwell observa que os dados do Chainalysis mostram que os depósitos BTC de 24 horas nas 15 principais plataformas de negociação de criptografia aumentaram cerca de 30%, enquanto os fluxos de saída aumentaram apenas uma pequena quantidade. O economista-chefe do Chainalysis afirma que uma inclinação geral para manter o BTC nessas bolsas pode indicar que „as pessoas estão calmas depois que o BitMEX carrega e vende em outros mercados“.

Bitcoin komt tot leven in een poging om 11.000 dollar terug te nemen

IN BRIEF

  • The Bitcoin price is trading inside a parallel ascending channel.
  • There is short-term weakness in technical indicators.
  • The price is likely nearing the top of the C corrective wave.

The Bitcoin (BTC) price reached a local high of $10,940 on Sept 15, but was rejected by an important Fib level resistance and decreased slightly.

At the time of press, BTC was making another attempt at breaking out.

Bitcoin Gets Rejected

Since it reached a local low on Sept 8, Bitcoin Era has been gradually increasing. The movement can be contained inside a parallel ascending channel inside of which the price is currently very close to the resistance area.

In addition, yesterday’s high of $10,940 validated both the resistance line of this channel and the 0.5 Fib level of the entire decrease, making it a likely reversal level.

Technical indicators are showing weakness. There is a considerable bearish divergence in the RSI, and the MACD has begun to decrease considerably, possibly getting ready to cross into negative territory.

“ style=“max-width: 100%; display: block !important;“ />The daily chart also indicates that the upward trend has not yet been confirmed. While the MACD is increasing, the RSI is possibly facing resistance at 50. In addition, the Stochastic Oscillator has not yet made a bullish cross.

Unless the price is successful in completing the following, this is likely to be a retracement, rather than a new upward trend:

  • Breaking out above the 0.618 Fib level at $11,200, a level which also previously acted as support
  • Stochastic Oscillator makes a bullish cross
  • RSI moves above 50

Wave Counts

Beginning on Sept 2, BTC likely began a bearish impulsive five-wave formation (in orange below) and is currently in wave 4. The two most likely levels for the wave to end would be at $10,937 (0.5 Fib level and current high) or $11,199 (o.618 Fib and previous support).

The fourth wave is transpiring inside a complex w-x-y corrective structure (red).

A closer look at the Y wave reveals an A-B-C formation (blue). The length of the waves supports a high of $11,200 being reached as that would give the C and A waves a 1:1.61 ratio, which is common during A-B-C corrections.

In addition, we can see that the C wave is in the fifth and final sub-wave (red). If the ascending support line that connects the bottom of sub-waves 2 and 4 is broken, it should confirm that the upward correction has ended.

To conclude, the BTC price looks to be nearing the end of the correction, which is expected to occur near $10,930 or $11,200.

Scott Melker continues to invest in YFL

One of the most interesting situations facing the crypto world today is that Bitcoin is not the center of attention for investors. In the midst of the boom in decentralized finance, most crypto users are aware of what’s happening with the price of other crypto currencies. This has led to the rise of currencies such as Ethereum. As well as movements such as that of Scott Melker, who continues to invest in YFL as he commented in the Tweet of the day:

YFI triples Bitcoin in value

Scott Melker trusts YFL
Practically no one related to the crypto market is unaware of the existence of yearn.finance. In just a couple of months, this decentralized finance project has become one of the most important crypto currencies in the world. It has managed to go from a launch price of 0 dollars to the 22,529 dollars it is currently quoted at. After having reached a maximum of 34,136 dollars starting in September.

Therefore, it is not a surprise that projects related to yearn.finance attract the attention of the public. With investors awaiting the possible emergence of a project that will repeat the success of yearn.finance. In order to capitalize on the enormous benefits that could be generated by a virtual currency with these characteristics.

It is thanks to this that an Ethereum token like YF Link (YFL), which emerged from a fork of yearn.finance, has managed to convince important investors like Scott Melker to enter its market. Achieving in less than a month reach a peak of $ 1467, before retreating to its current price of $ 595. Despite this, Melker remains optimistic about YFL:

„I’m buying YFL again, it’s been the easiest trade ever and again and again.

With this message, Scott Melker shows his confidence in a new rebound in the price of YFL. This also coincides with his optimism of the past few days regarding the future of decentralized finance projects. A prediction that, coming from a veteran investor like Melker, should be taken into account.

Previsione dei prezzi Bitcoin: BTC/USD Bulls Set Eyes On The Prize come $12.000 Beckons

  • Bitcoin recupera dal tuffo a n$11.100 ma colpisce un muro a $11.800.
  • BTC/USD abbraccerà probabilmente il supporto al 61,8% di Fibonacci e rilancerà la missione per superare i 12.000 dollari.

Il prezzo di Bitcoin ha mostrato resistenza dall’inizio della settimana

Questa settimana è iniziata con un’azione superiore ai 12.000 dollari, ma BTC ha colpito un muro a 12.084 dollari (su Coinbase). Un’inversione di tendenza ha preso il sopravvento con la fretta del prezzo che ha raggiunto gli 11.000 dollari. Lottando per mantenersi più vicini al livello critico a 12.000 dollari si è persa la trazione con la più grande moneta criptata che ha trascinato l’intero mercato in un nuovo selloff.

BTC/USD ha esplorato livelli vicini agli 11.000 dollari, ma il supporto a 11.100 dollari ha dato ai tori la possibilità di combattere per un’inversione di tendenza.

Il recupero nelle ultime 24 ore è stato costante e costante, tranne per il fatto che la pressione di vendita è presente. Per esempio, Bitcoin Rush ha spinto oltre gli 11.500 dollari e la resistenza a 11.600 dollari, ma non è riuscita a superare la congestione dei venditori a 11.800 dollari.

Al momento della scrittura, BTC sta oscillando a 11.761 dollari in un continuo ritiro da 11.800 dollari (resistenza immediata).

Il Relative Strength Index (RSI) segnala che le attività di vendita potrebbero guadagnare terreno nelle sessioni in corso e in quelle future.

Grafico BTC/USD a 1 ora

Il supporto iniziale è previsto al livello di resistenza di Fibonacci del 61,8%, preso tra l’ultimo swing alto di 12.084 dollari e un swing basso di 11.120 dollari. Se questo supporto è in frantumi, gli investitori possono aspettarsi un breakdown di 11.600 dollari (50% livello Fibonacci). Altri livelli di supporto da tenere a mente sono i 100 SMA a 11.643 dollari e i 50 SMA a 11.532 dollari.

Nonostante l’ostacolo di 11.800 dollari e il ritiro in corso, non tutto è perduto per i tori perché il MACD sta tenendo all’interno della regione positiva. Inoltre, i tori hanno occhi puntati sul premio a 12.000 dollari e, quindi, non cedono alla spinta per i guadagni al di sopra di questo livello cruciale.

El FBI ayuda a incautar 30 millones de dólares en Bitcoin de un gran sitio de piratería de películas

Las autoridades de Germain, con la ayuda del FBI, han eliminado uno de los mayores sitios de transmisión de películas de los alrededores, Movie2K. Pero sólo han incautado una fracción del Bitcoin que el sitio generó.

Las autoridades alemanas han incautado cerca de 30 millones de dólares en Bitcoin Future con la ayuda del FBI.
Los fondos fueron entregados por el programador de un sitio web de piratería de películas cerrado.
Sin embargo, aparentemente es una fracción de los 22.000 BTC ganados cuando el sitio estaba en funcionamiento.

La Oficina del Fiscal General en Dresden, Sajonia, en Alemania, anunció esta semana que incautó más de 25 millones de euros – o casi 30 millones de dólares – en Bitcoin

y Bitcoin Cash del operador de un centro cerrado para la transmisión ilegal de películas y programas de televisión.

El sitio web, Movie2K.to, funcionó desde 2008 hasta 2013, y alojó enlaces a unos 880.000 flujos de películas y episodios de televisión piratas. Según el anuncio, los operadores recibieron fondos que ascendían a aproximadamente 22.000 Bitcoin durante ese período a través de publicidad en línea y „trampas de suscripción“, en las que los usuarios aceptan membresías pagadas engañosas de las que luego luchan por liberarse.

Sin embargo, ese vasto recuento de Bitcoin -que valdría unos 262 millones de dólares al momento de escribir este texto- ya no estaba totalmente disponible. Los operadores del sitio supuestamente gastaron una cantidad significativa de los fondos faltantes en bienes raíces entre 2013 y 2016

El pasado noviembre, las autoridades alemanas arrestaron a dos individuos mientras investigaban el sitio web: un programador y un empresario inmobiliario. Ambos han admitido sus crímenes y están cooperando con las autoridades contra otro compañero operador del sitio.

El anuncio dice que el programador entregó voluntariamente los 25 millones de euros „durante su interrogatorio por el fiscal para la reparación de daños“.

El FBI ayudó a identificar el Bitcoin, con la asistencia adicional de la Oficina de la Policía Criminal Federal de Alemania.

La policía de Nueva Zelanda incauta 6 millones de dólares en criptografía vinculada a un plan de piratería

La policía de Nueva Zelanda anunció hoy la confiscación de más de 6,2 millones de dólares neozelandeses (3,9 millones de dólares estadounidenses) en activos criptográficos y otros 800.000 dólares (500.000 dólares estadounidenses) en fondos bancarios…

TorrentFreak informa que Movie2K.to fue inmensamente popular cuando estaba en vivo, en un momento dado clasificándose como el 19º sitio más visitado en Alemania antes de su cierre en mayo de 2013.

Sin embargo, fue una ausencia temporal, ya que el sitio web fue reemplazado por el sitio imitador Movie4K.to, que sigue en vivo hoy en día. Desde entonces, ese sitio web ha sido bloqueado ampliamente por los proveedores de servicios de Internet en países como Dinamarca, Austria y el Reino Unido.
