Laut dem Gouverneur der schwedischen Zentralbank ist es unwahrscheinlich, dass Bitcoin und andere Kryptowährungen in der Zukunft um eine strengere Regulierung herumkommen. Die Popularität der digitalen Währungen könnte Aufsichtsbehörden zu weiteren Maßnahmen drängen.

Trotz der Volatilität und mannigfaltigen Warnungen durch verschiedenste Vertreter des traditionellen Finanzwesens, erfreut sich das Krypto-Versum einer großen und vor allem aktiven Anhängerschaft. Dabei ist immer wieder Thema, ob stärkere Regulierungen den gelebten Grundgedanken von Bitcoin und Co. entgegenwirken könnten.

Bitcoin – too big to regulate?

Da nun auch immer mehr institutionelle Investoren, wie beispielsweise Goldman Sachs Interesse am Krypto-Sektor bekunden, ist von einem „Verschwinden“ der Kryptowährungen nicht mehr auszugehen. Das einstige „Nischen-Projekt“ einiger Cypherpunks können die Aufsichtsbehörden nicht mehr länger ignorieren. Allerdings ist auch klar, dass es an vielen Ecken und Enden an technologischem Know-how und schneller Reaktionsfähigkeit mangelt. Gouverneur der Riksbank, Stefan Ingves, erklärte:

„Wenn etwas groß genug wird, kommen Dinge wie Verbraucherinteressen und Geldwäsche ins Spiel. Es gibt also guten Grund zu der Annahme, dass [Regulierung] stattfinden wird.“

Fraglich ist, welche Regulierungen noch auf die Krypto-Community zukommen sollen. Schließlich sind Kryptowährungen wie Bitcoin schon ziemlich stark reguliert. Beispielsweise möchte das Bundesfinanzministerium nun mit einem entsprechenden Gesetzentwurf gegen die Anonymität der Kryptowährungen vorgehen. So sollen bald alle Transaktionsinformationen für das Ministerium einsehbar sein, wie BeInCrypto bereits berichtete.

Katz-und-Maus-Spiel: Entwickler gegen Aufsichtsbehörden?

Die Zeit wird zeigen, ob die langsam agierenden Aufsichtsbehörden mit der schnelllebigen Technologie des Krypto-Versums schritthalten können. Mit zunehmender Adaption werden sicherlich immer mehr Menschen die Hintergründe von Bitcoin und anderen Kryptowährungen für sich erörtern. Wie Moritz Wietersheim vom Projekt Specter Wallet gegenüber BeInCrypto erklärte:

„Diese Menschen verstehen, dass jetzt hier etwas anderes los ist. Das treibt Leute dazu sich Bitcoin genauer anzuschauen und als Optionen wahrzunehmen. Ich traue einer technischen Community wie der Bitcoin-Community und meinen technischen Jungs mehr übern Weg als irgendeiner Bundesregierung oder der aktuellen Medienlandschaft.“

Wie wir weltweit sehen, haben Krypto-Regulierungen meist nur einen geringen Effekt auf die tatsächliche Nutzung der digitalen Währungen. Während China versucht Händlern den Einsatz von Kryptowährungen zu verbieten, ziehen Unternehmen einfach in kryptofreundliche Gefilde um oder ignorieren die Regulierungen gänzlich.

Zum Beispiel entstehen in den USA einige Krypto-Hotspots. Somit ist davon auszugehen, dass dieser Trend wohl eher nicht rückläufig ist, sondern den Krypto-Enthusiasten und Unternehmen in naher Zukunft noch viele weitere dieser Standorte zur Verfügung stehen werden. Auch hier sehen wir, dass die unterstützende Community stark an der Umsetzung der eigenen Visionen arbeitet, während Regulierungsbehörden die einzelnen Regulierungsschritte sehr genau abwägen.

‘Bitcoin’s six-week run of outflows has been driven’ by these factors

Republished by Plato

Published

on

The Bitcoin market was witnessing strong sell-offs for over a month now. On Monday, the largest digital asset plunged to its monthly lows of $31k, triggered by the ongoing crackdown by China. This has spread panic among investors.

Over the past week, Bitcoin outflows totaled a massive sum of $89 million, while the bitcoin outflows value hit $487 million for the year. This was 1.6% of assets under management as indicated by the data offered by CoinShares.

The above chart indicated that the top cryptos like Bitcoin and Ethereum were both noting a higher selling pressure in the current market.

This was the third consecutive week of outflows for the entire crypto market and it amounted to $79 million leaving the market. Researchers have termed this as ‘the longest bear run in outflows since February 2018’. Currently, for June, the net outflows remained high at $210.5 million with another week left of the month.

According to Matt Weller, global head of market research at Forex.com:

“Bitcoin’s six-week run of outflows has been driven by the combination of environmental concerns and an increasingly antagonistic regulatory environment in China. With these themes still in effect and prices subdued, it may be a while before we start to see another period of sustained fund inflows.”

Following China’s crackdown, authorities in one of the largest Bitcoin mining provinces, Sichuan ordered the closing of the cryptocurrency mining projects. Owing to such negative sentiments in the market, BTC value has remained low at $32k, at the press time.

Data from Alternative.me also suggested ‘Extreme Fear’ in the market and its value has fallen to 10, suggesting more fear than greed.

Bitcoin has now lost almost 50% of its value since the peak observed in April.

Ethereum, the second-largest cryptocurrency was also seeing minor outflows of $1.9 million last week. In the previous week, it reported a total outflow of $14.6 million, which was restricted compared to Bitcoin’s outflows. Ether outflows represented only 0.14% of assets under management, suggesting the negative sentiment had remained focused on Bitcoin.

Crypto Trader’s $20 Investment Explodes to $1,184,154,683,482 on Coinbase – But He’s Not Cashing Out

After investing $20 in the crypto markets, one crypto trader just woke up to a one-trillion dollar fortune in his Coinbase account.

Chris Williamson, a nurse from Georgia, says he invested $20 in Rocket Bunny (BUNNY) cryptocurrency on Coinbase last week. After the trade, his portfolio balance soon skyrocketed to a staggering $1,184,154,683,482.

On paper, this made Williamson the richest man in the world.

‘I woke up, it’s like 9:00 a.m. and I always check my phone to check how my crypto to see how it’s doing and I’m just like, ‘Naw, I’m sleeping.

I look at it again and I’m like… at that point I fall out of my bed, literally.”

Despite the big balance, Williamson says he was unable to cash out or send the crypto to a private wallet. He contacted both Coinbase and Rocket Bunny. A representative from Coinbase told him they were looking into the problem, while Rocket Bunny did not immediately respond.

Coinbase later confirmed the trader’s massive balance was a glitch, and would be corrected. 

This isn’t the first time the crypto exchange giant had a glitch in its system. Back in April 2020, crypto analyst Captain Scio pointed out a massive blunder on the Coinbase Pro app, showing that someone had purchased 42,085 BTC, worth $306 million at the time, for just 18 cents. 

Williamson is keeping a positive attitude on the situation.

“The ongoing joke right now between me and my friends in Coinbase and one of the emails I sent them was like: ‘Look, I need y’all to let me know what’s going on because I got a mega-yacht company ready to build me a penguin-shaped yacht.

‘So, you know, let me know.’”

BUNNY is a utility token on Binance Smart Chain. It’s used to power the broader Rocket Bunny ecosystem of dApps (decentralized applications), which includes Rocket Drop (launchpad), Rocket Swap (DEX) and Rocket Labs (testing ground).

PayPal and Visa Lead $300M Funding for Blockchain Capital

Republished by Plato

Published

Blockchain Capital remains a major tech backer in the DLT space with investments in numerous crypto and DLT projects.

Fund V with $300M Funding

According to a press release published on Monday (June 22, 2021), Blockchain Capital has closed funding for its Fund V LP. The capital raise reportedly drew participation from several high-profile backers including global payment giants Visa and PayPal.

Capped at $300 million, Blockchain Capital’s latest fund was oversubscribed likely pointing to the continued appetite for DLT-related funding despite the current crypto market downturn. Apart from Visa and PayPal, university endowments, hedge funds, family offices, and pension funds also participated in the capital raise.

Bart Stephens, co-founder and managing partner at Blockchain Capital commented on the closure of the fifth VC fund, stating:

“We are incredibly honored to welcome a world class group of investors into Fund V who appreciate the value of a firm dedicated to a single industry. As founders ourselves, we know how hard it is to build companies, protocols and, indeed, a whole new industry.”

Spokespersons for both Visa and PayPal stated that their support for Blockchain Capital was part of efforts to boost innovation in digital finance. According to Jose Fernandez da Ponte, vice president and general manager of blockchain, crypto and digital currencies at PayPal:

“Investing in Blockchain Capital’s new fund allows us to engage with the entrepreneurs driving the future of the decentralized economy and the new wave of financial services.”

Serial Blockchain Backer

Blockchain Capital is a serial investor in the crypto and DLT space. The company’s portfolio of projects cuts across several facets of the emerging industry including United States-based exchange giants like Coinbase and Kraken.

Blockchain Capital’s investment portfolio also extends to the decentralized finance market arena, backing projects like Aave, UMA, and Nexus Mutual.

Since securing about $2 million in funding from Blockchain Capital and other investors back in May 2018, OpenSea has been able to attract additional investments, including a $23 million injection as reported by CryptoPotato back in March.
