Lang erwartete Einführung der Facebook-Libra

Lang erwartete Einführung der Facebook-Libra nach umfangreichen Überarbeitungen

Die Libra-Krypto-Währung von Facebook nähert sich endlich ihrem Starttermin, der schon im Januar 2021 liegen könnte.

Laut FT planen Facebook und der Rest der in Genf ansässigen Waage-Vereinigung, in den kommenden Monaten eine auf Dollar basierende stabile Münze auf den Markt zu bringen.

Die Einführung der bei Bitcoin Bank einzigen Stablecoin ist eine verkleinerte Version des ursprünglichen Plans der Vereinigung, mehrere Stablecoins auf den Markt zu bringen, die durch verschiedene traditionelle Währungen gestützt sind.
WERBUNG

Die Entscheidung der Libra Association, die Einführung einer ehrgeizigeren Kryptowährung zu verschieben, ist zum Teil auf regulatorische und politische Kritik zurückzuführen.

Zukunft des Zahlungsverkehrs in Europa

Fabio Panetta, Vorstandsmitglied der Europäischen Zentralbank (EZB), kritisierte am Freitag auf der Konferenz der Deutschen Bundesbank zur Zukunft des Zahlungsverkehrs in Europa die rasante Ausgabe von Stablecoins verschiedener großer Technologieunternehmen und bekräftigte damit seine Meinung, dass solche digitalen Zahlungsoptionen große Risiken für die Verbraucher bergen.

„Wie ich bereits früher argumentiert habe, werfen Stablecoins Bedenken hinsichtlich des Verbraucherschutzes und der finanziellen Stabilität auf. Tatsächlich kann der Emittent einer Stablecoin die Gewissheit über den Wert des Zahlungsinstruments, das er den Verbrauchern anbietet, nicht garantieren. Eine solche Garantie kann nur von der Zentralbank gegeben werden.“

Panetta setzt sich weiterhin für eine flüssige und anpassungsfähige Reaktion der Zentralbanken auf die, wie er es nennt, „digitale Transformation“ des Zahlungsverkehrs ein. Das Vorstandsmitglied der EZB betont, dass es die Zentralbanken sind, die die wichtigste Rolle bei der Bestimmung des Verlaufs der Währungsrevolution spielen sollten, und nicht die Technikgiganten.

„Die digitale Transformation löst eine Revolution im Finanzsektor aus, die Innovation, aber auch Risiken mit sich bringen wird. Vor allem große Techs und Stablecoins könnten das europäische Finanzsystem stören. Und während sie bequeme und effiziente Zahlungslösungen anbieten könnten, riskieren sie auch eine Gefährdung des Wettbewerbs, der Privatsphäre, der finanziellen Stabilität und sogar der Währungssouveränität…

In dem Maße, wie privates Geld digital wird, muss auch souveränes Geld neu erfunden werden. Dazu muss Zentralbankgeld unter allen Umständen verfügbar bleiben – natürlich in Form von Bargeld, aber möglicherweise auch als digitaler Euro“.

Trotz internationaler Gegenreaktionen planen die 27 Mitglieder der Waage-Vereinigung, zu denen auch Facebook gehört, zu einem späteren Zeitpunkt zusätzlich zu ihrer Dollar-Münze noch stabilere Münzen auf den Markt zu bringen.

Der er kun to modstande tilbage, før Bitcoin indstiller friske all-time højder

Bitcoin har set en hidtil uset volatilitet i løbet af de sidste par dage, hvor dens opstigning nåede et kogepunkt i går aftes, da tyre steg op og sendte den til at flyve til højder på $ 18.600

Salgspresset her var ret intenst og fik det hurtigt til at se et salg
Inden for få minutter faldt prisen fra højder på $ 18.600 til laveste på $ 17.400, med støtten her, der udløste en skarp rebound
Det har siden stabiliseret sig og konsolideres lige under $ 18.000, hvor de kortsigtede tekniske udsigter forbliver stærke
En analytiker bemærker nu, at der kun er to vigtige modstandsniveauer tilbage, før kryptokurrency sætter nye all-time højder
Disse niveauer kan brydes hurtigere end investorerne forventer

Mens han delte sine tanker om, hvor Bitcoin Evolution kan udvikle sig på kort sigt, forklarede en analytiker, at der kun er to modstandsniveauer tilbage, før det sætter nye, heltidshøjder.

Bitcoin har set nogle vilde prishandlinger gennem de sidste par dage og uger. Tyre har forsøgt at kontrollere sin tendens og sendt den til højder på $ 18.600 sent i går aftes.

Disse højder var dog kortvarige, og en massiv tilstrømning af salgstryk stoppede kryptovalutaen i dens spor. Inden for få minutter faldt prisen over $ 1.000 og kastede sig ned i regionen med lavere $ 17.000.

Det er siden kommet tilbage og er blevet konsolideret under $ 18.000.

En erhvervsdrivende bemærker nu, at der virkelig kun er to modstandsniveauer tilbage, som kryptoen skal bryde for at den kan sætte nye højder.

Han peger på $ 18.900 og $ 20.000 og bemærker, at over dette niveau er det klar himmel indtil næsten $ 24.000.

Fordi tyre har vist styrke de sidste omkring 80 dage, er der en stærk mulighed for, at et skub op mod dette niveau er nært forestående på kort sigt.
Bitcoin trækker sig tilbage fra daglige højder, når sælgere prøver at vende opadgående tendens

Bitcoins uptrend blev overophedet i går aftes, da tyre sendte den til $ 19.000. Det handler nu markant ned fra disse højder.

I skrivende stund handles BTC med knap 1% til den nuværende pris på $ 17.530. Dette markerer en lille stigning fra daglige nedture på $ 17.400, men en næsten fuld sletning af gevinsterne set, da den sendte sin „V-formede“ opsving i går aftes.
Analytiker: BTC har kun to modstandsniveauer tilbage før nye højder

”BTC: Bare tryk på udvidelsen 1 til 1 fra marts-august-løbet. Der er ikke meget at lege med mere med hensyn til mål. Kun to niveauer tilbage er 18900 (højeste ugentlige lukning) og 20k (ATH). 1.618 udvidelse @ 23.775k. ”

Medmindre tyre vender skaden, der er gjort ved sidste aftenes salg, er der en mulighed for, at Bitcoin vil se yderligere kortvarig ulempe, før de tester disse modstandsniveauer.

GLI ANALISTI SI ASPETTANO DI PASSARE A 20.000 DOLLARI IN QUANTO IL BITCOIN DETIENE I SUPPORTI CHIAVE

Bitcoin ha subito una rapida correzione ieri sera dopo che la moneta ha premuto fino a 18.500 dollari sui principali scambi.
Anche in questo caso, gli analisti rimangono ottimisti sulla principale moneta criptata.
Un trader ha affermato che, poiché il Bitcoin è riuscito a mantenere i livelli di supporto chiave nonostante sia entrato due volte nei bassi $17.000 nell’arco di poche ore, potrebbe passare a nuovi massimi.

BITCOIN MANTIENE I LIVELLI DI SUPPORTO CHIAVE
Bitcoin ha subito una rapida correzione ieri sera dopo che la moneta ha premuto fino a 18.500 dollari sui principali scambi. La moneta è caduta di circa 1.000 dollari nell’arco di un minuto o due, precipitando da quegli alti livelli a 17.400 dollari.

La moneta criptata ha dovuto affrontare una forte resistenza a catena. C’è stata anche una grande pressione di vendita sui libri degli ordini di cripto-cambio. Commentando il movimento, un analista ha scritto:

„Non so perché così tante persone pensano che ci sia un „loro“ in mosse come questa. I suoi scalpellini ben informati a breve termine testano il mercato e trovano con successo una sacca di liquidità dai top longer che piegano le loro posizioni in rapida successione“.
Gli analisti pensano che la crittovaluta manterrà la sua pressione rialzista nonostante il recente calo.

Commentando il grafico a quattro ore, che mostra forti stoppini verso i bassi $17.000, un trader ha detto recentemente:

„sospiro questo è così ritardato rialzista forte rialzista giornaliero vicino qui e stiamo prob prendendo ATH oggi o domani sullo stesso modello di btc 16k, primo stoppino lungo culo inferiore stoppino da iniziale profit-takers secondo stoppino lungo culo inferiore stoppino da successivi profit takers sul rimbalzo la prossima volta che corre imo“.

Come mostra il grafico, Bitcoin è riuscito a mantenere i livelli di supporto chiave nonostante sia entrato nei bassi $17.000 due volte nell’arco di poche ore. La Bitcoin che riesce a mantenere alti i livelli di prezzo, ha spiegato l’analista, scatenerà probabilmente un movimento verso i massimi di tutti i tempi.

NON L’UNICO CHE LA PENSA COSÌ

Altri analisti sono ottimisti sul fatto che il trend sia ancora positivo per Bitcoin. Riferendosi a come ci siano poche resistenze fino ai nuovi massimi di tutti i tempi, ha detto recentemente un trader:

„BTC: Basta colpire il prolungamento di 1 a 1 dalla corsa di marzo-agosto. Non c’è più molto con cui giocare in termini di obiettivi. Rimangono solo due livelli in avanti: 18900 (massima chiusura settimanale) e 20k (ATH). 1,618 estensione @ 23,775k“.

Molti hanno affermato che, a quanto pare, la recente caduta è stata una chiara trappola per gli orsi. Il problema è che rimangono molte tendenze rialziste del mercato per il Bitcoin, come i bassi tassi di finanziamento e una quantità massiccia di prelievi dalle borse.

A ciò si aggiunge il fatto che i fondamentali dello spazio continuano a migliorare man mano che la stampa monetaria continua e che il Bitcoin guadagna notevoli sostenitori di Wall Street.

Serious security concerns with blockchain elections

No democracy without trustworthy elections? MIT researchers have strong doubts as to whether the blockchain has a future-proof solution when it comes to voting.

The allegations of election fraud brought forward by the outgoing US President Donald Trump are putting the democratic process under pressure. This development has sparked thought about whether the election procedure could not be better protected from allegations and actual attempts at manipulation. Famous representatives from the crypto space formulated a solution that could be expected : Blockchain-based elections. But of all things, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) recently put a damper on these plans.

Scientists from the renowned research institute presented the results of a study on November 6thpublished on the security aspects of blockchain and other online voting systems. The authors arrive at a clear result:

Internet- and blockchain-based voting would significantly increase the risk of undetected, nationwide elections being lost.

Online voting has too many points of attack

The researchers say they are positive about efforts to make elections more efficient and to remove obstacles that (especially in the US) prevent certain groups of voters from voting. Nevertheless, they have reservations that speak against voting via the Internet and Crypto Genius.

They remind you that the security concerns in elections are of a different dimension than in online shopping and Co. After all, there is no insurance against a “failure of democracy.” As long as it cannot be sufficiently ensured that all votes are counted correctly, they ran all efforts to improve the electoral procedure come to nothing.

A key argument here is that Internet-based attacks are much easier to carry out on a large scale. They may be hard to spot. The cost of such an attack is also much lower. MIT researchers also point out that the security of devices that are part of the voting system depends on too many factors:

Errors in the voting system can be caused by the provider of the voting software, the hardware manufacturer, the manufacturer or a third party who maintains or supplies the code for these organizations. The voter who uses a telephone to cast their votes depends not only on the telephone provider, but also on the hardware companies that provide drivers for the device […]

What does blockchains offer?

As far as blockchain elections are concerned, the authors note the same fundamental reservations as with other online systems. Consensus mechanisms and encryption are not enough for them to allay their concerns.

First, they are discussing a model in which votes are cast via tokens on a public blockchain. Each voter sends a public key to a blockchain-based electoral roll. He then receives a coin with which he can vote for his candidate. The MIT researchers see the problem here that the ballot papers are not secret, since all votes are cast publicly. This opens up mechanisms of influence such as the purchase of votes (“I can prove that I voted for candidate XY”) or an agreement between miners. In addition, public blockchains are vulnerable to DDOS attacks.

Permissioned blockchains should not be able to solve the problems either. On these centrally managed blockchains, depending on the setting, the problem could arise that the users cannot verify whether their vote was actually counted.

Finally, they discuss an elective solution based on zero knowledge proofs. Information can be confirmed here without sharing it. Thus, secret elections seem possible, in which the voting can still be verified. However, here too there is no satisfactory mechanism against influencing and buying votes for the authors.

Finally, the authors also rate key management as fundamentally problematic. In particular, voters who are not particularly tech-savvy could have problems here.

Game Over? Atari token drops 70 percent a few days after token sale

Game developer Atari’s foray into crypto-verse does not seem to be a success. Numerous breakdowns, latency times and user complaints caused the ATRI price to dash down within 36 hours of the token sale.

The video game pioneer Atari has been working on a decentralized platform for all kinds of entertainment offers since 2018, in which the in-house crypto currency, the Atari token, acts as a means of payment. The public launch of the Atari Token (ATRI) started via an Initial Exchange Offering (IEO) on Bitcoin.com on November 2nd. However, the well-known video game developer did not seem to have had a particularly successful first foray into the crypto space. Within a few days, the ATRI rate fell by 70 percent. It is currently trading well below the original sales price and even below the price that was reduced in the pre-sales rounds.

Atari’s token sale mishaps

Some mishaps had seriously affected the token sale. These included, on the one hand, the problems with the order processing, the insufficient crediting of funds to the accounts and payment delays of up to 16 hours. A Reddit user writes:

The orders didn’t come in and the support didn’t respond. Somehow things were sorted out and the CEO apologized.

So far, the team behind the Atari token has not commented on the bumpy processes. Meanwhile, the provider’s Twitter account has also appeared comparatively quiet in the last few days.

Users lodge a complaint

Users complained about the awkward process of token sales. According to the Reddit user, Atari allegedly told presale buyers that they would be able to transfer their tokens to the exchange five minutes before the official listing on Bitcoin.com. At the time of the listing, however, this option did not work. Instead, pump-and-dump transactions by public buyers and Atari itself took place shortly after the listing, according to the user.
