Bitcoin Whale Movimenta Massiva Fortuna de $4,5 Bilhões em BTC por uma taxa de $21

Uma baleia bitcoin movimentou um enorme montante de US$ 4,5 bilhões em bitcoin durante a venda do navio-estandarte cryptocurrency neste fim de semana, que viu o preço do bitcoin cair de US$ 55.000 para um mínimo de US$ 43.000 antes de se recuperar.

A baleia bitcoin movimentou 103.510 BTC

De acordo com dados da cadeia de bloqueio, a baleia bitcoin movimentou 103.510 BTC, no valor de mais de 4,5 bilhões de dólares, por uma taxa de cerca de 21 dólares na época. A transação foi descoberta pela primeira vez pelo serviço automatizado de monitoramento de grandes transações BTC Block Bot, que publicou sobre ela na mídia social.

As grandes transações anãs que foram vistas recentemente, incluindo uma de88.857 BTC feita em outubro, na época no valor de US$ 1,1 bilhão. Essa transação foi então considerada como a maior transação de BTC em dólares já realizada.

A maioria dos exploradores de cadeias de bloqueio que etiquetam endereços de bitcoin mostram que a popular troca de moedas criptográficas Bitfinex estava por trás da grande transação, movimentando fundos de uma carteira fria onde se guardam os fundos dos usuários. A transação, como tal, poderia ser parte de um procedimento de segurança de rotina, por exemplo.

A Bitfinex não divulgou nenhuma declaração a respeito da grande transação, mas é conhecida por mover grandes quantidades de fundos regularmente, presumivelmente para melhorar sua estratégia de segurança e armazenamento a frio. A carteira fria da Bitfinex continua sendo uma das maiores carteiras de BTC registradas, com 98.511 BTC nela.

As baleias Bitcoin têm uma influência significativa no mercado

As baleias Bitcoin têm uma influência significativa no mercado, tanto que o popular analista da cadeia Willy Woo revelou recentemente que acredita que a correção recente do preço das baleias Bitcoin foi causada por uma transferência de um bilhão de dólares de baleias. Em uma entrevista, Woo observou que uma transação interna da Gemini aparentemente desencadeou a venda, dizendo:

Eu estava tentando descobrir esta grande venda. E, sabe, o pico começou quando houve um pequeno alerta de que tínhamos 1,5 bilhões de dólares que acabaram de ser transferidos para as bolsas para vender… a suposição era de vender. E eu acho que isso se espalhou entre os comerciantes e começamos a ver a venda se antecipando.

O analista apontou a correção „matou“ o ímpeto de alta do bitcoin em sua corrida para um recorde histórico de US$ 58.000. Apesar de sua influência no mercado, transações tão grandes provam o caso de uso do bitcoin como uma reserva de valor e uma moeda alternativa. Movimentar $4,5 bilhões através do sistema financeiro tradicional custaria bem mais de $21.

Veja como os preços de Eth2, DeFi e Bitcoin impactarão os futuros CME da Ethereum

Os investidores estão nervosos que o lançamento de futuros CME ETH desta semana será uma repetição do lançamento CME de 2017 do Bitcoin, mas os dados sugerem o contrário.

O lançamento abismal de futuros de dezembro de 2017 do Bitcoin Revolution rapidamente ficou aquém das expectativas dos investidores e, embora o mercado CME BTC tenha ultrapassado US $ 2,5 bilhões em contratos em aberto, o lançamento inicial reforçou a narrativa de que o lançamento de futuros CME ETH desta semana será igualmente baixista no curto prazo.

Antes do lançamento dos futuros do CME BTC, o Bitcoin já havia ganhado 1.900% no ano, uma alta que alguns analistas argumentam que foi impulsionada pela expectativa de futuros regulamentados

Agora que os futuros do CME ETH foram lançados, os investidores estão observando de perto para ver se o Ether ( ETH ) enfrentará uma situação semelhante, uma vez que já ganhou 600% no ano passado.

Até o momento, não há como estimar como o Bitcoin teria se saído sem a existência dos futuros CME e CBOE. No entanto, os comerciantes ainda tendem a conectar o lançamento do CME à queda de 70% no preço do BTC que ocorreu nos primeiros 3 meses após o lançamento.

A análise de uma variedade de commodities e lançamentos de contratos de câmbio nas últimas duas décadas pode fornecer uma perspectiva melhor sobre o assunto, portanto, revisaremos os dados do índice histórico das primeiras datas de negociação do CME para ver se há uma tendência de preço discernível que ocorre após as listagens do CME.

Óleo de palma bruto

Quando os futuros do óleo de palma bruto foram lançados no CME em maio de 2010, eles não afetaram a recuperação contínua dos preços, conforme indicam os dados acima. Contratos semelhantes já existiam há quase uma década na NYMEX, portanto, o evento acima pode ter tido menos importância, visto que ambas as bolsas lidam com clientes institucionais.

Vários fatores podem ter causado uma alta nos preços do óleo de palma após o lançamento do CME, incluindo o desempenho positivo de 23% do óleo WTI nos próximos cinco meses.

Won sul-coreano

Em um tom semelhante, os futuros do won sul-coreano listados em setembro de 2006 e, neste caso, o lançamento pareceu ter um impacto imediato no preço.

Apesar de não ter um contrato futuro, o Non-Deliverable Forwards (NDF) para o won sul-coreano já existia antes da listagem do CME. Esses contratos de NDF são normalmente negociados no mercado de balcão (OTC) e raramente são transferíveis entre investidores. Isso significa que o contrato futuro cotado contava com um maior número de instituições que poderiam participar.

Mais uma vez, é impossível estimar se o lançamento desse contrato futuro teve um impacto imediato no preço. É possível que a desvalorização do won sul-coreano tenha seguido a tendência das economias emergentes ou asiáticas. Portanto, fixar esse movimento ao lançamento de futuros do CME parece um exagero.

Aave’s share price reaches a new record high

Aave’s share price reaches a new record high

The token price of the Aave decentralised finance platform (DeFi) reached its highest level to date.

  • The higher the total blocked value (TVL) in DeFi increases, the more value flows into its main platforms, including Aave.
  • Aave allows users to borrow and earn interest through deposits, but without a centralised regulator.
  • The Trust Project is an international consortium of media organisations based on transparency standards.

With the continued Financial Peak growth of decentralised finance (DeFi), some of its key applications, such as the Aave protocol, are seeing the price of their token rise considerably.

While the total blocked value (TVL) in DeFi is around 25 billion dollars, some of the main decentralised finance projects are recording record prices. Aave is one such project. It is an open source and custodial DeFi protocol, which allows its users to earn interest on deposits and borrowings of assets.

The soaring rise of Aave

Does this look like the setting of a traditional bank? It does. However, with Aave, the majority of fees and profits are paid to the platform’s users and its media. According to defipulse.com, an analysis and ranking platform, Aave is the second highest ranked application in terms of LCT (currently $3.63 billion).

The huge amount of value stored on the platform coincides with AAVE token prices, which have never been higher. The token has now exceeded $250. Meanwhile, the total market capitalisation of the network is approaching $3 billion. At its current market capitalization, Aave is the 15th largest blockchain network in the world.

The explosion of decentralized finance

This record level follows a 20% increase in the price in the last 24 hours. Such sudden rises seem to be commonplace in recent times in the decentralised finance industry. Investors are more enthusiastic than ever about the future of these new financial products. As a result, people are looking outside the more established tokens to try to generate interesting gains.

Many financial transactions are adapted to these decentralised platforms. These include loans, decentralised exchanges (DEX), decentralised derivatives and asset management. One of the most interesting aspects, however, lies in the platform used to develop most of these applications.

If one refers to the main channels in terms of TVL on the Defipulse site, it can be seen that only one of the 63 main channels with its TVL does not work on Ethereum. In addition to Lightning Network, a Layer 2 scaling solution for the Bitcoin blockchain, the remaining 62 main channels are built on the Ethereum network.

New BlackRock documents cite possibility of introducing derivatives on Bitcoin

 

BlackRock, the $7.8 trillion U.S. asset manager, has filed new documents with the SEC in which „Bitcoin“ is mentioned 25 times

It seems that BlackRock, the world’s largest asset manager, is preparing for its entry into the derivatives market on Bitcoin (BTC): this is revealed by some documents filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) of the United States.

The two documents in question, filed by the „BlackRock Funds V“ and the „BlackRock Global Allocation Fund,“ appeared yesterday on the SEC’s website. Both mention the possibility, not confirmation, of using derivatives on Crypto Profit and other assets as part of their investment program.

Specifically, the documents can read:

„Each Fund could use instruments called ‚derivatives,‘ which are financial instruments that derive their value from one or more securities, commodities (such as gold or oil), currencies (including Bitcoin), interest rates, credit events or indices (a measure of value or rates, such as the S&P 500 Index or the Prime Lending Rate.“

BlackRock also mentions Bitcoin later in the section on various derivatives risk factors:

„A Fund’s investment in Bitcoin futures may involve illiquidity risks, as it is not traded as frequently as other futures, as the BTC futures market is relatively new.“

In recent months, a number of BlackRock executives have expressed very positive views on Bitcoin, highlighting how opinion on Wall Street about cryptocurrencies is gradually changing. Rick Rieder, CIO of Fixed Income at BlackRock, predicted in November that BTC „will largely take the place of gold [because] transferring Bitcoin is much more practical than moving gold bars around.“

Larry Fink, CEO of BlackRock, revealed a few weeks later that his firm is following Bitcoin developments very closely:

„Bitcoin has captured the attention and imagination of many people. But it has not yet been tested, and it is quite small compared to other markets. […]

Can it become a global market? It’s possible.“

Demonstrating BlackRock’s interest in cryptocurrencies, right now the firm is looking for an individual to take on the role of „Vice President, Blockchain Lead“ for its New York office. The candidate must have at least one year of experience in the blockchain business, as well as understand concepts such as „cryptographic hash functions, consensus mechanisms within distributed networks, and public/private key-based cryptography.“

Ehemaliger Fed-Chef nicht überrascht von Bitcoin’s aktueller Marktentwicklung

Der ehemalige Fed-Gouverneur Kevin Warsh glaubte, dass der US-Dollar an Wert verliert und diese Situation scheint sich positiv auf Bitcoin auszuwirken. Kevin Warsh war ein Gouverneur des Federal Reserve Systems während und nach der Finanzkrise 2008. In einem kürzlichen Interview in CNBCs Squawk Box analysierte der ehemalige Regierungsbeamte den US-Dollar, Gold und Bitcoin.

Er erklärte, dass der Anstieg des Preises des digitalen Assets ihn nicht überrascht, in einer Zeit der „Dollarschwäche“.

Viele glauben, dass die steigenden Preise von Bitcoin auf wachsende institutionelle Investitionen zurückzuführen sind, während andere glauben, dass junge Investoren sich für Bitcoin anstelle von Gold und anderen Assets entscheiden. Weiter sagte Warsh in einem Statement:

Wenn es Bitcoin nie gegeben hätte, würde Gold jetzt noch mehr ansteigen, aber ich schätze, wenn Sie unter 40 sind, ist Bitcoin Ihr neues Gold.

Laut Kevin Warsh hat sich die US-Geldpolitik, die von der Fed verfolgt wird, „seit der Paul Walker-Ära noch nie so radikal verändert.“ Weiterhin glaubt Warsh, dass Bitcoin immer mehr zum Mainstream wird und das Potenzial hat, eine alternative Währung zu werden.

In Anbetracht der wirtschaftlichen Bedingungen, in denen wir uns befinden, denkt Warsh auch, dass es sinnvoll sein kann, einen Platz für Bitcoin im Investmentportfolio zu reservieren und sagte:

Ich denke, dass Bitcoin als Teil eines Portfolios in diesem Umfeld durchaus Sinn macht.

Nee, je kunt geen aandelen in Bitcoin kopen

Met bitcoin die door een uitgebreide bull-run gaat, hebben oplichters en oplichters een algemene angst om te missen (FOMO) uitgebuit. Veel early adopters van bitcoin werden multimiljonairs door simpelweg het digitale goed vast te houden.

Nieuwe Scam Tactic

Als gevolg daarvan zijn er veel bitcoin-investeringsoplichterijen ontstaan en zijn er miljoenen dollars verloren gegaan aan fraudeurs. Hoewel sommige onderwijs- en bewustmakingscampagnes hebben geholpen om sommige van de sinistere oplichtingstactieken aan het licht te brengen, lijkt het erop dat er nieuwe en meer schaamteloze oplichterijen ontstaan.

Een van die nieuwe tactieken houdt in dat investeerders aandelen in Bitcoin zelf kunnen kopen of bezitten, alsof het een bedrijf is. Deze tactiek maakt bijvoorbeeld deel uit van een uitgebreid complot dat gebruikt wordt door individuen achter een operatie die Bitcoin Inc heet, om onwetende investeerders op te lichten om de operatie te verwarren met „de echte Bitcoin“.

In een presentatie stellen de aandeelhouders van „Bitcoin Inc“ bitcoin voor als de oprichting van een particulier bedrijf dat rond het jaar 2010 is ontstaan. De timing van de opkomst van Bitcoin Inc lijkt de indruk te wekken dat de organisatie waarschijnlijk achter de uitgifte van bitcoin zelf zit.

Met behulp van halve waarheden en ronduit valse beweringen zegt de oplichterswebsite dat sommige beleggers al bitcoin-aandelen bezitten via de volledige bedrijfsaandelen van Bitcoin Inc, nadat ze deze in 2010 hebben gekocht. Volgens de informatie op de site is er een „21 miljoen BTC maximum limiet en 1000 Bitcoin Inc volledige bedrijfsaandelen maximum limiet“. Eén volledig bedrijfsaandeel is „gelijkwaardig“ aan 10 BTC.

Om onwetende investeerders te verleiden, impliceert de website dat iedereen die sinds 2010 één volledig bedrijfsaandeel heeft gekocht en vastgehouden, nu een beleggingsportefeuille heeft die op $210.000 wordt gewaardeerd. Dit komt omdat BTC sindsdien is gestegen van de prijs van $0,10 toen de volledige corporate aandelen zogenaamd werden uitgegeven in 2010.

BTC is inderdaad het best presterende bedrijfsmiddel in het afgelopen decennium geweest, maar het werd zeker niet door één enkele entiteit uitgegeven, aangezien de exploitanten van Bitcoin Inc. insinueren. Het creëren en uitgeven van bitcoins is eerder te wijten aan een complexe en gedecentraliseerde technologie.

Dus terwijl Bitcoin Inc terecht 21 miljoen noemt als het vaste maximum van BTC, slaagt de organisatie er niet in om potentiële investeerders te informeren dat er tot nu toe bijna 18,5 miljoen bitcoins zijn uitgegeven. De allerlaatste BTC zal pas in het jaar 2140 worden uitgegeven, maar toch impliceert Bitcoin Inc dat er al 21 miljoen munten in omloop zijn.

Ondertussen, op het moment van schrijven, handelt BTC met iets minder dan $18.000, maar heeft het moeite om het $19.500 weerstandsniveau te doorbreken. Interessant is dat de Bitcoin Inc site ten onrechte impliceert dat BTC een geprojecteerde prijs van $21.000 heeft, wat een nieuw record zou zijn als het waar zou zijn.

Leugens en halve waarheden

Normaal gesproken zou dit gebruik van valse informatie alleen al voldoende moeten zijn om beleggers af te wijzen. Typische bitcoin scammers zijn zich bewust van de algemene onwetendheid van niet-bitcoiners, zodat ze zich niet al te veel zorgen maken over de mogelijke nadelen van het gebruik van leugens. In plaats daarvan weten de oplichters dat het gebruik van de aantrekkingskracht van het snel rijk worden vaak genoeg is om zelfs de meest rationele beleggers te misleiden.

Bovendien, een schijnbare terughoudendheid om de basisprincipes over bitcoin (door niet-bitcoiners) te leren, evenals het niet volgen van trends in de crypto-markten, geeft oplichters meestal nieuwe slachtoffers. Misschien is de minst bekende tactiek van oplichters wel de poging om zichzelf als een groep goedaardige filantropen te casten.

Het kopen van USDC Stablecoin

Door deze strategie te kopiëren, geeft Bitcoin Inc een kans aan investeerders die „gemist“ hebben toen haar volledige bedrijfsaandelen voor het eerst werden verkocht: Bitcoin Inc zegt:

De volledige bedrijfsaandelen van Bitcoin Inc. zijn lang geleden gekocht, waarbij de aandeelhouders de voordelen en dividenden genieten die horen bij het bezit van de aandelen van een succesvol bedrijf. Bitcoin Inc. heeft een overeenkomst gesloten met alle aandeelhouders waardoor zij nu fractioneel gelijkwaardige bedrijfsaandelen aan het publiek aanbieden ter ere van het 10-jarig bestaan van Bitcoin Inc.

Met een zeer onsamenhangende uitleg verzekert Bitcoin Inc. beleggers die het in 2010 gemist hebben, dat ze het nu goed kunnen maken door „elk bedrag aan USDCX in uw cryptocurrency portemonnee te houden“.

Om dit te doen, gaat de website dan voor de moord. Een belegger hoeft alleen maar USDC stablecoins die gelijk zijn aan de USDCX „fractionele aandelen“ die hij wil kopen over te dragen aan een etherisch contractadres, maar er is een voorbehoud.

De verklaring legt uit dat „om de integriteit van de bedrijfsaandelen van Bitcoin Inc te behouden“, het verzoek om de USDCX-aandelen handmatig zal worden verwerkt. De verklaring voegt hieraan toe:

Zodra we de transactie hebben geverifieerd, zal de corresponderende USDCX direct naar uw portemonnee worden gestuurd vanaf het contractadres van USDCX Ethereum.

Pas als het proces voltooid is, wordt men „trotse eigenaar van USDCX en mede-eigenaar van de officiële Bitcoin Inc.! Maar niets houdt de oplichter tegen om hetzelfde opnieuw te doen met een andere Bitcoin-achtige website en domein, zoals „Bitcoin Ltd.“. Bitcoin is perfect geschikt voor oplichters omdat er geen handelsmerk of bedrijf achter het merk Bitcoin zit dat het kan beschermen tegen oplichters.

Bitcoin’s dominance rate (BTCD) reaches its highest level since 2019

The BTCD has passed a line of falling resistance.

Support and long-term resistance are observed at 62.5% and 71%.

The BVDT follows a short term upward parabolic support line.

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

Bitcoin’s dominance rate (BTCD) has surpassed one Bitcoin Blueprint review long-term support line and aims to reach another long-term support line close to 71%.

Although the long-term trend appears to be upward, a short-term rejection and correction is likely once the BTCD has reached this resistance zone.

Transition from long-term resistance
During the week of 14-21 December, the BTCD crossed a downward resistance line in place since August 2019.

The BTCD continued its ascent this week and is heading towards the closest zone of resistance, at 71%. It had not moved above this zone since September 2019, which corresponds to the top of the descending resistance line.

The nearest support zone is at 62.5%.

Technical indicators are bullish, supporting the possibility that the upward movement will continue. This is all the more notable given that the MACD has just passed above 0, while the RSI is in the process of passing above 70.

A passage above the 71% resistance zone could trigger an even more marked upward movement due to the absence of further resistance.

BTCD Long-Term Breakout
Graphic BTCD – TradingView
Cryptocurrency trader @Mesawine1 presented a chart of the BTCD, indicating that although it is currently at a high resistance level, a breakthrough above it could trigger a very strong continuation movement.

That said, he believes that the BCDB will decline instead. Although long-term indicators are bullish, as we saw above, traders should look at shorter time scales to determine the direction of the BOTCD going forward.

The BTCD day chart shows an upward support line that has been maintained since the beginning of September. Currently, the BTCD is considerably above this line, suggesting that the movement is too broad. A retracement in order to validate this line is therefore possible.

However, as for the week, the technical indicators are bullish, which supports the continuation of the upward movement.

The first sign of a rally that could not continue comes from the two-hour chart. The latter shows a parabolic rising support line. Once the parabola is broken, a sharp drop is likely.

This would also correspond to the aforementioned possibility of validating the upward support line, since the fibonacci retracement levels 0.5-0.618 at 64-65% coincide with the latter.

Conclusion
In conclusion: the long term trend of the BCDB seems bullish, so that the passage above the 71% long term resistance zone is quite possible.

However, the short-term parabola is not viable. Therefore, a short-term corrective movement is expected before a new breakthrough is attempted.

The Swiss Central Bank continues its curious experiments – Central bank digital currency on the horizon?

Switzerland is also taking part in the race – The Swiss Central Bank is taking a new step in the creation of its MNBC. She is looking for commercial banks to scrupulously test her crypto-franc.

First conclusive tests

It has been some time now since the Swiss National Bank (SNB) started various tests with a view to issuing an MNBC.

But it was in early December that she finally published a document summarizing her work with the BIS (Bank of International Settlement) in the context of large transfers between banks .

After initial favorable results, the SNB is preparing to test its cryptocurrency as part of the launch of the SIX Digital Exchange , in 2021. This appears to be the ideal infrastructure to test the newly created MNBC.

In reality, the next step is to test the adaptability of the MNBC with commercial banks . This is why the SNB claims to be currently looking for a guinea pig:

“We are now looking for local banks who are willing to participate, as it involves some costs for them. They will need to be able to adapt their own systems to participate. “

Statement by Thomas Moser, deputy member of the Executive Board of the Swiss National Bank at The Block
Tests gathered in the Helvetia project
All of these tests are part of a project called Helvetia. Its main objective is to set up proofs of concept to test the viability of an MNBC.

This project included 2 different proofs of concept :

The first on tokenization , namely the issue of the MNBC

The second concerns „detokenization „, namely the delivery against payment of the tokenized asset.
However, this project is only the beginning of a long series of tests.

“The Helvetia project is a first step towards this broader understanding of the implications for the financial system. There is still work to be done to establish a clear vision of the role of a central bank in any future system. „

For its part, the Central Bank of France is continuing its tests in partnership with Société Générale . It remains to be seen who will be the first country on the European continent to adopt a central bank cryptocurrency.

Bitcoin reclama 24.000 dólares tras el apoyo de Elon Musk.

El precio de la BTC se enfrenta a una gran resistencia en la zona de los 7.150 dólares

Tras su nuevo máximo histórico durante el fin de semana, Bitcoin volvió a esos niveles durante las primeras operaciones del lunes por la mañana, lo que indica que los toros no han terminado con los mercados.

Los precios de Bitcoin alcanzaron un récord de 24.250 dólares hace unas horas según los gráficos de Tradingview.com. La cifra exacta variará ligeramente en las diferentes bolsas y en los diferentes países debido a la demanda.

Bitcoin regresa a 24.000 dólares

Es la segunda vez que el activo digital dominante del mundo ha superado el nivel de 24 mil dólares y podría estar en camino de alcanzar un hito de 25 mil dólares esta semana.

En el momento de redactar el presente informe, se ha producido un retroceso marginal hasta los 23.900 dólares, pero el impulso sigue siendo fuerte, ya que recientemente ha recibido el impulso de uno de los empresarios de tecnología más influyentes del mundo.

Los inversores y las figuras criptográficas aclaman a Bitcoin alcanzando los 20.000 dólares, el nuevo ATH

Elon Musk ha estado ocupado en twitter este fin de semana con un número de endosos de Bitcoin que incluyen un meme que es un poco demasiado picante para su republicación en Finbold.

Los comentarios dieron lugar a varias sugerencias de que Tesla está a punto de embarcarse en una juerga de compras de Bitcoin, pero la probabilidad de que eso siga siendo escasa.

Los analistas se han centrado más en los gráficos en los esfuerzos por determinar cuánto más alto puede llegar este rally. La novena secuencia suele significar un retroceso, pero aún no se ha materializado para Bitcoin.

Su colega y criptoanalista YouTuber, Tone Vays, se mantuvo alcista pero advirtió sobre el aumento de los precios demasiado rápido;

„Sigo siendo optimista hasta el lunes, pero si Bitcoin alcanza los 30.000 para el final de la semana estaríamos en esa zona de subida demasiado rápida que históricamente termina mal“.

En otras partes de los mercados criptográficos

La capitalización total del mercado ha superado los 680.000 millones de dólares por primera vez en casi tres años, según Coingecko. Ethereum y XRP no han registrado más ganancias durante el fin de semana y han sido Litecoin y Bitcoin Cash los que han hecho movimientos al alcanzar los 120 y 365 dólares respectivamente.

Otros altcoins que han hecho buenas ganancias en las últimas 24 horas son Binance Coin, Bitcoin SV, EOS, NEM, y Tron.

13% af Bitcoins hvidvaskningstransaktioner skete gennem privatlivsporteføljer

Privatlivsporteføljer blev brugt til at hvidvaskede de midler, der blev stjålet fra hackerne på Twitter og Kucoin, da deres rolle fortsætter med at vokse blandt dårlige skuespillere.

En nylig rapport fra et blockchain-analysefirma viste, at kriminelle er begyndt at bruge privatlivsporteføljer til at skjule deres ulovlige bitcoin-transaktioner. Brugen af ​​sådanne tegnebøger er steget kraftigt siden 2019, og nu går over 13% af al indtjening fra kriminalitet igennem dem.

Den voksende rolle i privatlivsporteføljer til ulovlige aktiviteter
Det britisk-baserede analysefirma Elliptic fremhævede i sin seneste rapport stigningen i antallet af hvidvaskningssager ved hjælp af bitcoin. Det påpegede imidlertid en væsentlig ændring i den primære driftsmetode.

Papiret skitserede, at det mest foretrukne værktøj til hvidvaskning af penge plejede at være de berygtede bitcoin-mixere. Enkelt sagt fungerer sådanne mixere som mønter randomiserende og sørger for, at de sendte og modtagne bitcoins er forskellige. I sidste ende gør de det sværere at spore transaktionen tilbage til den oprindelige tegnebog.

Men da de også har problemer, herunder muligheden for, at retshåndhævende organer portrætterer som mixeroperatører eller regulatorer med succes at slå ned på brugen, er dårlige aktører begyndt at vende sig til en anden mulighed – privatlivsporteføljer.

Betydning, bitcoin-tegnebøger (enten varme eller kolde), der hører til bestemte individer, snarere end en udveksling. Når det kombineres med Tor-anonymitetsnetværket, kunne sådanne tegnebøger transmittere CoinJoin-transaktioner.

CoinJoin er på den anden side processen med at skabe multi-parts Bitcoin Era-transaktioner, hvor den oprindelige kilde også er blandet og vanskelig at spore. Slutresultatet af disse tjenester er blevet stort set populært blandt hvidvaskere siden sidste år. Som grafen nedenfor illustrerer, udgør private tegnebogstransaktioner knyttet til dårlige aktører 13% og har overgået mixere.

Inddragelse i de to mest berømte 2020-hacks
2020 har set flere væsentlige sikkerhedsbrud på en eller anden måde relateret til kryptovalutaindustrien. Elliptics rapport angav, at privatlivsporteføljer var blevet ansat med to af de mest berømte til at hvidvaskse de taget midler.

Det er nemlig Twitter-hacket, der så snesevis af højt profilerede konti kompromitteret for at fremme en falsk bitcoin-giveaway og angrebet på KuCoin, der stjal 280 millioner dollars i forskellige digitale valutaer.

Rapporten specificerede imidlertid ikke, hvilken del af de stjålne midler, der er blevet hvidvasket med succes gennem privatlivspungerne. En måned efter hacket på kryptovalutaudvekslingen sagde KuCoins administrerende direktør, at de havde genvundet 235 millioner dollars – eller 84% af alle midlerne
