• NFTs accounted for 28% of the ETH gas usage in January.
• The second, third, and fourth most significant shares of gas usage were Defi (8%), ERC20 (8%), and stablecoins (6%), respectively.
• CryptoSlate analysts divided all transactions on the Ethereum (ETH) network into eight categories—Vanilla, ERC20, Stablecoins, DeFi, Bridges, NFTs, MEV Bots, and Others.

According to recent research from CryptoSlate, the NFTs category accounted for 28% of the total gas usage on the Ethereum (ETH) network in January 2021. The analysis divided all transactions on the ETH network into eight distinct categories—Vanilla, ERC20, Stablecoins, DeFi, Bridges, NFTs, MEV Bots, and Others—in order to gain more detailed insights into the gas usage of the network.

The Vanilla category encompassed pure ETH transfers between Externally Owned Accounts (EOAs) issued without calling any contracts. The ERC20 class counted all transactions that call ERC20 contracts, excluding stablecoin transactions. The Stablecoins category represented all fungible tokens that have their value pegged to an off-chain asset either by the issuer or by an algorithm. This category included over 150 stablecoins, with Tether (USDT), USD Coin (USDC), Binance USD (BUSD), and DAI (DAI) being the most prominent ones.

The Defi category covered all on-chain financial instruments and protocols implemented as smart contracts. Decentralized exchanges (DEXs) also fell under this category. More than 90 Defi protocols were represented, including Uniswap, Aave, and Compound. The Bridges category consisted of all transactions related to the transfer of assets between different blockchains, such as Bitcoin and Ethereum. The NFTs category included all transactions related to the issuance, transfer, and burning of non-fungible tokens (NFTs).

The MEV Bots category included all transactions related to miner extractable value (MEV) bots. These bots are able to detect arbitrage opportunities in the Ethereum network and execute transactions to capitalize on them. Finally, the Others category encompassed all transactions that did not fall into any of the other categories.

In terms of the relative share of gas usage, the NFTs category was the largest, accounting for 28% in the first month of the year. The second, third, and fourth categories that occupied the most significant gas usage by share appeared as Defi (8%), ERC20 (8%), and Stablecoins (6%), respectively.

Overall, the research provides a valuable insight into the gas usage of the Ethereum network. It is likely that NFTs will continue to occupy a large share of the network’s gas usage as the industry continues to grow and mature.

• On-chain Bitcoin metrics suggest a bottoming of the market.
• CryptoSlate revisited several Glassnode metrics which point to a price reversal.
• Market Value to Realized Value (MVRV) further splits into Long-Term Holders and Short-Term Holders to indicate when the Bitcoin price is trading above or below fair value.

Recent research into on-chain Bitcoin metrics continues to point to a bottoming of the market. CryptoSlate recently revisited several Glassnode metrics which suggest a price reversal is on the horizon. One of these metrics is the Bitcoin Supply P/L Bands, which show the circulating supply that is either in profit or loss, based on the price of the token being higher or lower than the current price at the time of last moving. Market cycle bottoms coincide with the Supply in Profit (SP) and Supply in Loss (SL) lines converging, which happened most recently around Q4 2022. Since then, the SP band has moved up sharply to diverge from the SL band, suggesting a macro upturn in price could be on the cards if the pattern holds.

Another metric which can be used to indicate when the Bitcoin price is trading above or below fair value is Market Value to Realized Value (MVRV). This metric is further split into two categories; Long-Term Holders and Short-Term Holders. Long-Term Holder MVRV is the ratio between the market cap (or market value) and the value stored by long-term holders. Similarly, Short-Term Holder MVRV is the same ratio between the market cap and the value stored by short-term holders. By comparing these two ratios, investors can gain an indication of when the Bitcoin price is trading above or below fair value.

Finally, there are macro factors in play which may not have been present in previous cycles, potentially impacting the current market cycle. These factors must be taken into consideration when interpreting the data, as the current cycle may not play out the same as past cycles. Ultimately, it remains to be seen if these on-chain metrics continue to indicate a market bottom, but investors should keep a close eye on these metrics in the coming weeks and months.

• Former FTX CEO Sam Bankman-Fried (SBF) has released a Substack report detailing his account of what happened at FTX.
• He claims that no funds were stolen and attributes the collapse of FTX to Alameda’s inability to hedge against a market crash adequately.
• SBF believes that FTX can still recover with the right plan of action.

Sam Bankman-Fried, former CEO of FTX, has released a Substack report detailing his account of what happened at the trading platform. In it, he claims that no funds were stolen, and that the collapse can be attributed to Alameda’s failure to adequately hedge against a market crash.

Alameda, a hedge fund run by SBF, had grown to a balance sheet of roughly $100 billion in Net Asset Value, $8 billion in net borrowing, and $7 billion in liquidity on hand. However, over the course of 2022, a series of large broad market crashes occurred in both stocks and crypto, leading to a ~80% decrease in the market value of its assets. In November 2022, the situation was made worse by a targeted crash precipitated by the CEO of Binance, thus ultimately making Alameda insolvent.

Despite this, SBF has expressed optimism that FTX can still be recovered. He compared the situation to that of Voyager and Celsius, two cryptocurrency companies that emerged from similar situations. He believes that with the right plan of action, FTX can emerge from this crisis unscathed. He is currently confined to his parent’s house according to the terms of his bail, and is working on a recovery plan.

Ultimately, the future of FTX is uncertain, but SBF is hopeful that the situation can be remedied. He is urging investors to remain patient and trust that the right course of action will be taken.

• Animoca Brands has lowered its fundraising target for a web3 investment fund to $1 billion in the first quarter of 2023, down from its original target of $2 billion.
• The fund, called Animoca Capital, will be co-managed by Morgan Stanley’s former executive, Homer Sun, and will be used to make strategic investments in developing the Web3 ecosystem.
• Animoca is in talks with potential investors to support Animoca Capital, and CEO Yat Siu says the company will focus its funding efforts on growing a Web3 ecosystem.

Animoca Brands, a global leader in digital entertainment, recently announced that it has reduced its fundraising target for a web3 investment fund to $1 billion in the first quarter of 2023. The company had initially planned to raise up to $2 billion during the same period, but readjusted the goal due to “challenging” market conditions.

The new fund, called Animoca Capital, will be co-managed by Morgan Stanley’s former executive, Homer Sun. It will be focused on making strategic investments to develop a Web3 ecosystem. Animoca is currently in talks with potential investors who may be interested in supporting Animoca Capital.

CEO Yat Siu spoke about the announcement, saying: “[The first quarter] is the goal and then let’s see what happens. It is fair to say it’s a challenging market. But we have quite a bit of interest.”

Animoca has around $98 million in its cash balance, $870 million worth of liquid crypto, and $4 billion in off-balance sheet coins. At the beginning of 2022, the company raised $358 million in funding as well and has stakes in over 380 companies. Temasek also invested a hefty sum in Animoca.

Siu mentioned that Animoca is not planning to raise funds for itself in the foreseeable future, but will instead focus its funding efforts on growing a Web3 ecosystem. This includes making investments in metaverse projects, which will be funded with the targeted $1 billion.

The Web3 ecosystem is made up of decentralized networks, protocols, and applications that are powered by blockchain technology. This new system is set to revolutionize the digital economy and create opportunities in areas such as finance, gaming, entertainment, and more. Animoca is committed to developing this ecosystem and creating a more secure and efficient digital economy.

Animoca’s readjustment of its fundraising target for the web3 investment fund is a testament to the company’s commitment to developing the Web3 ecosystem and creating a more secure and efficient digital economy. With its latest efforts, Animoca is set to make a lasting impact on the industry.

• The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission has filed charges against eight individuals involved in a crypto scheme called CoinDeal.
• CoinDeal’s perpetrators raised over $45 million by selling unregistered securities to investors and promised high returns.
• CoinDeal founder Neil Chandran misused funds for personal expenses, including the purchase of cars, property, and a boat.

The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has filed charges against eight individuals involved in a fraudulent crypto investment scheme called CoinDeal. According to the SEC’s complaint, CoinDeal’s perpetrators raised over $45 million by selling unregistered securities to investors. They promised high returns and stated that CoinDeal’s blockchain technology would eventually be sold to wealthier buyers for trillions of dollars.

However, CoinDeal never sold the blockchain technology and no wealth was ever distributed to investors. Daniel Gregus, the SEC’s regional director for Chicago, said: „We allege the defendants falsely claimed access to valuable blockchain technology and that the imminent sale of the technology would generate investment returns of more than 500,000 times for investors.“

The SEC also found that CoinDeal founder Neil Chandran misused funds for personal expenses, including the purchase of cars, property, and a boat. A past announcement suggests that Chandran had to forfeit at least 100 different assets. Chandran has a long history of fraud, and he was indicted by the U.S. Department of Justice on other charges related to CoinDeal last summer. In 2017, he was arrested in the U.S. on felony charges related to a firm called Sungame Corp. In 2015, he was arrested in the UK on fraud charges related to a company called Hypercane.

The SEC is seeking disgorgement of profits, interest, penalties, and an injunction against the eight individuals. It is also seeking an order to freeze the defendants’ assets and impose a permanent bar on Chandran from serving as an officer or director of any public company.

Investors should always be wary of high-yield investments and should thoroughly research the background of any company before making an investment. The SEC is committed to protecting investors from fraud and will continue to bring enforcement actions against those who perpetrate such schemes.

Sie können in 3 Kontotypen bei Crypto Boom investieren:

Crypto Boom allgemeines Anlagekonto (GIA)
Crypto Boom Aktien und Anteile ISA
Selbst angelegte persönliche Altersvorsorge (SIPP)
Es gibt auch ein Premium-Konto, Crypto Boom Plus. Dieses bietet zusätzliche Vorteile, ist jedoch mit zusätzlichen Kosten verbunden.

Crypto Boom Allgemeines Anlagekonto
Dies ist das Basiskonto von Crypto Boom. Es hat keine monatlichen Kosten, und Sie können kostenlos Sofortaufträge erteilen.

In der Regel entscheidet man sich für das allgemeine Anlagekonto, nachdem man seinen ISA-Freibetrag für das Jahr ausgeschöpft hat, da man möglicherweise Kapitalertragssteuer auf die erzielten Gewinne zahlen muss. Kapitalertragssteuer ist auf Gewinne zu zahlen, die den Freibetrag von 12.300 £ in jedem Steuerjahr übersteigen.

Wenn Sie im laufenden Finanzjahr (das von April bis April läuft) nicht in einen ISA eingezahlt haben, ist der ISA eine kostengünstigere Option.

Crypto Boom ISA

Der Crypto Boom Stock and Shares ISA ist ein persönliches Konto, in das Sie in jedem Steuerjahr bis zu einem bestimmten Betrag investieren können, ohne Steuern auf Ihre Gewinne zu zahlen. Für das Steuerjahr 2021/2022 beträgt der Freibetrag 20.000 £. Das bedeutet, dass Sie 20.000 £ in die verfügbaren Aktien und börsengehandelten Fonds investieren können und auf die erzielten Gewinne keine Steuern zahlen müssen.

Sie können ein ISA mit der Crypto Boom-App eröffnen. Es kostet 3 £ pro Monat (36 £ pro Jahr). Mit den kostenlosen Geschäften und den Devisenkosten für US-Geschäfte ist es ein ziemlich günstiges Angebot im Vergleich zu Hargreaves Lansdown oder anderen traditionellen Brokern, die alle zwischen 5 und 12 £ für ein Geschäft berechnen.

Auch hier gilt es zu bedenken, dass Crypto Boom ein etwas eingeschränktes Handelsuniversum hat. Es ist nicht ideal für diejenigen, die eine Vielzahl von Dingen in einem ISA halten wollen (nämlich Fonds und Aktien aus verschiedenen Märkten).

Was die Kosten angeht, ist Crypto Boom unschlagbar, vor allem, wenn Sie langfristig viel Geld investieren möchten.

Sie können auch Ihren bestehenden ISA auf Ihr Crypto Boom-Konto übertragen.

Die Bewertung von Bitpanda mit Sitz in Wien ist auf 4,1 Milliarden Dollar gestiegen und damit auf das Dreifache des Wertes, den der Krypto-Broker bei seiner letzten privaten Finanzierungsrunde im März hatte.

Thiels Valar Ventures führt 3. Kapitalerhöhung für Bitpanda mit $4.1B Bewertung an

Wie indexuniverse.eu heute berichtet, hat Bitpanda seine dritte große private Finanzierungsrunde unter der Leitung von Peter Thiels Valar Ventures abgeschlossen.

Mit 263 Millionen US-Dollar und neuen Investitionen des britischen Milliardärs und Hedgefonds-Managers Alan Howard und REDO Ventures wird das Unternehmen nun mit 4,1 Milliarden US-Dollar bewertet. Das ist das Dreifache der letzten Bewertung von 1,2 Milliarden Dollar bei der Kapitalerhöhung von 170 Millionen Dollar im März dieses Jahres.

Bitpanda hat in verschiedenen privaten Finanzierungsrunden fast 500 Millionen US-Dollar aufgebracht, wobei neben dem dreimaligen Geldgeber Valar Ventures auch wiederkehrende Investoren wie LeadBlock Partners und Jump Capital beteiligt sind. Seit 2014 konzentrieren sich die Angebote des Unternehmens auf das Brokerage von Kryptowährungen und Edelmetallen. Die Plattform erprobt derzeit einen Aktienhandelsservice, der rund um die Uhr verfügbar sein soll.

In einem Interview mit CNBC sagte Bitpanda-Mitbegründer und Co-CEO Eric Demuth, dass das Aktienangebot wahrscheinlich bis Ende dieses Jahres fertig sein wird. Nachdem Bitpanda seine Popularität unter Krypto-Nutzern gefestigt hat, würde der neue Service die Plattform auf das gleiche Terrain bringen wie sehr erfolgreiche Aktienhandels-Apps wie Robinhood, deren Profil – sowie Handelsvolumen und wohl auch Bekanntheitsgrad – während der GameStop-Saga Anfang des Jahres in die Höhe schossen.

Ein herausragendes Merkmal von Bitpanda ist seine Rentabilität. Demuth hat gesagt, dass das Unternehmen in den letzten fünf Jahren profitabel war und, obwohl es seine genauen jährlichen Einnahmen gegenüber Reportern nicht offenlegt, angeblich auf dem besten Weg ist, diese bis 2021 zu versiebenfachen. Mit derzeit mehr als 3 Millionen Nutzern, die immer noch deutlich unter denen der Konkurrenten Robinhood und Revolut liegen, hebt sich das Unternehmen von beiden ab. Der Börsengang von Robinhood enthüllte Anfang des Jahres einen Quartalsverlust von 1,4 Mrd. USD, und Revolut verlor 2020 über 230 Mio. USD – ein Anstieg von 57 % gegenüber 2019.

Bei seiner Kapitalerhöhung im März 2021 hatte Bitpanda eine Investition von DST Global, dem Geldgeber von Robinhood, erhalten, der zum Zeitpunkt der Erstellung dieses Artikels noch nicht öffentlich als Teilnehmer an dieser jüngsten Runde bestätigt wurde.

Bitpanda ist ausschließlich in Europa tätig und plant, mit der neuen Finanzierung auf neue Märkte wie Frankreich, Spanien, Italien und Portugal zu expandieren. Das Unternehmen hat keine unmittelbaren Pläne, an die Börse zu gehen, aber Demuth hat sich positiv über die jüngste direkte Notierung von Wise an der Londoner Börse geäußert, die einer Notierungsmethode folgte, die erstmals von Spotify an der New Yorker Börse im Jahr 2018 verwendet wurde. Einen Börsengang über eine Fusion mit einer Zweckgesellschaft – der Weg, den der Stablecoin-Emittent Circle für seinen Börsengang an der NYSE später in diesem Jahr gewählt hat – hat er ausgeschlossen.

Se a compra ocorrer conforme planejado, a empresa de inteligência de negócios manterá mais de US $ 3,5 bilhões em Bitcoin como ativo de reserva.

Após um anúncio na terça-feira de que a MicroStrategy planejaria comprar $ 600 milhões em Bitcoin ( BTC ) por meio da venda de notas conversíveis, a empresa de inteligência de negócios aumentou a aposta em outros $ 300 milhões.

A MicroStrategy disse na quarta-feira que venderia US $ 900 milhões em notas seniores conversíveis com vencimento em 2027 em uma oferta privada para compradores institucionais qualificados

De acordo com as estimativas da empresa, o produto da venda será de aproximadamente US $ 879 milhões. Acrescentou, entretanto, que poderia chegar a US $ 1 bilhão „se os compradores iniciais exercerem integralmente sua opção de comprar notas adicionais“.

A empresa de inteligência de negócios disse que esperava fechar a oferta na sexta-feira, quando iria „adquirir Bitcoin adicional“.

Com o preço do Bitcoin atingindo um máximo histórico de mais de $ 51.000 na quarta-feira, a MicroStrategy poderá em breve ter um adicional de 19.000 BTC em seus cofres

O investimento inicial de $ 250 milhões em Bitcoin Compass da MicroStrategy em agosto de 2020 mais do que dobrou, devido à recente alta do crypto asset. Desde então, a empresa de inteligência de negócios comprou 16.796 BTC por $ 175 milhões em setembro de 2020, depois 29.646 BTC porUS $ 650 milhões por meio da emissão de títulos em dezembro de 2020. Além disso, a empresa comprou 314 Bitcoin por US $ 10 milhões no final de janeiro, e 295 BTC por US $ 10 milhões no início deste mês.

Se a compra ocorrer de acordo com o planejado, a empresa de inteligência de negócios manterá mais de US $ 3,5 bilhões do ativo criptográfico em suas reservas, ou cerca de 90.000 BTC. Isso significaria que a empresa controlaria 0,48% do fornecimento em circulação do Bitcoin.

Whiskey glass symbolic of the tokenization of whiskey via the Zilliqa platform.

With the Casks of Distinction token, Zilliqa has created a system that the investor can turn into face value or a fine drop if desired

That alcoholic beverages, especially wines, are viewed by some speculators as an investment is nothing new. In the digital currency space, however, there are not too many examples of this. The blockchain platform Crypto Nation Pro has now tokenized a rare whiskey collection entitled “Casks of Distinction”.

This emerges from an official Zilliqa blog post . This was made possible by the collaboration with Rare Cask Holdings Pte Ltd. This is a wholly-owned subsidiary of PrimePartners Corporate Finance Holdings (PPCFH). The token is now listed on the Southeast Asian member exchange Hg Exchange (HGX).

Essentially, this means that Zilliqa’s asset-backed tokenization enables accredited investors to own a portion of this previously illiquid asset. The token value is therefore directly linked to the market value of the whiskey. Upon reaching maturity and bottling of the whiskey, investors can also trade their tokens on HGX for cash value. Alternatively, investors can choose to receive a bottle of whiskey from the underlying barrel for each token.

Especially fine whiskey as an inflation-proof investment

Ultimately, it is BaaS (Blockchain as a Solution) that made this special investment model possible. As a founding member of HGX and an official technology supplier, Zilliqa used smart contract technology to tokenize these kegs. This means that the investors also receive a certificate of authenticity about the origin. Full transparency and traceability are given at all times. The Casks of Distinction whiskey tokens are minted and managed by Zilliqa’s fungible token smart contract – the ZRC-2 standard .

The title Casks of Distinction is only given to the rarest and highest quality whiskeys from the best barrels that have been stored and matured in the Scottish distilleries. In fact, there are only about 50 whiskeys every year that are given this title by absolute experts, the so-called master blenders . Some of the whiskeys in this illustrious circle immediately sold for over a million pounds. These include, for example, barrels from leading distilleries such as Port Ellen, Mortlach, Caol Ila and others.

Since, despite the high price, the number of bottles of the expensive whiskey actually decreases over time, the remaining units gain even more in value. In terms of investment strategy, the whiskey is an excellent hedge against long-term inflation. As the market for limited items is skyrocketing, tokenization could be the next frontier for the ownership of luxury goods. Sneakers are also one of the consumer items for which strictly limited editions sometimes achieve astronomical prices.

Bakkt CEO taler om XRP som hans Crypto Exchange planlægger at tilføje flere kryptovalutaer

Ny Bakkt CEO, Gavin Michael, afslører, om XRP vil blive understøttet af kryptobørs

  • „Vi er stærkt regulerede“
  • At udnytte forbrugernes krypto nysgerrighed

Under sit optræden på Axios Re: Cap-podcasten afslørede Bakkt-direktør Gavin Michael, at hans snart-offentlige virksomhed planlægger at tilføje nye kryptovalutaer. Ripple-tilknyttet XRP er dog ikke blandt Bitcoin Era dem, der kommer om bord:

Vi kom ind i kryptorummet gennem Bitcoin … Vi har andre, der er planlagt til at komme om bord som en del af produktudviklingen, men XRP er ikke tilgængelig. ”

„Vi er stærkt regulerede“

Mange børser, herunder Coinbase, har meddelt, at de vil suspendere XRP-handel eller fjerne noteringen af ​​tokenet, efter at de amerikanske værdipapirer og Kommissionen sagsøgte sin udsteder i slutningen af ​​december.

Det faktum, at Bakkt vælger at undgå kryptokurrency, der af SEC nu betragtes som en sikkerhed, er ikke engang eksternt overraskende. Mens Michael undgik spørgsmålet om Bakkts nye FinCEN-regler for selvhostede tegnebøger, udråbte han sit virksomheds fokus på overholdelse af lovgivningen:

”Så vi tror på behovet for fortsat at køre efter regulering omkring brugen af ​​disse miljøer som on-ramper til det finansielle system. Vi er stærkt regulerede. Vi har en meget stærk AML / KYC-tilgang, der har brug for de regler, der i øjeblikket tales om. ”

At udnytte forbrugernes krypto nysgerrighed

Oprindeligt lanceret i september 2019, er Bakkt mere end en kryptobørs eller en depotmand. Dens forbrugercentrerede app understøtter alle former for digitale aktiver – fra loyalitetspoint til gavekort og aktiver i spillet:

„Vi er der for virkelig at drive denne nye dagsorden om at samle loyalitets- og handelsplatforme for at fremskynde skiftet til digitale aktiver.“

I pressemeddelelsen den 11. januar skitserede Bakkt sin plan om at blive offentlig ved at fusionere med SPAC Victory Park Capital.

Michael siger, at virksomhedens børsintroduktion ville give flere muligheder for krypto-nysgerrige forbrugere:

„Jeg tror, ​​det giver flere muligheder for forbrugere, der er krypto-nysgerrige, let at kunne komme ind i miljøet, komme ind i kampen i en meget brugervenlig app.“
