BTC暴跌,YouTube禁令和其他挑战

2020-3-15 16:35

 

过去一周,比特币一直处于下行趋势,过去七天下跌了约15%。这很糟糕,但还可能更糟。你可能把钱投资在股票上了。然而,有些人仍然保持乐观。RT的Max Keiser预测,这种冠状病毒将把比特币的币值推高至10万美元,摩根大通(JPMorgan)首席执行官杰米•戴蒙(Jamie Dimon)将恳求美联储为购买比特币提供资金。不过,戴蒙可能想要分散投资。


Coinbase的首席执行官布莱恩·阿姆斯特朗(Brian Armstrong)曾表示,可能并不是BTC将密码用户的数量从5000万增加到了50亿。他没有说哪一种硬币会做这项工作,但它可能是一个使用分散的金融协议,或DeFi。比特币仍然不是其中之一。与此同时,比特币的时钟还在滴答作响。现在离下一次减半还有不到两个月的时间。


YouTube仍在禁止有关加密货币的视频,与以往一样,人们永远不清楚他们希望删除哪些视频,以及愿意保留哪些视频。美国国会议员保罗•戈萨(R-AZ)正试图澄清一些问题,但仅限于加密货币的监管。他的新法案《2020年密码货币法案》试图对不同类型的密码资产进行分类,并将其分配给适当的监管机构。


韩国政府也一直很忙。该国国民议会已将加密货币交易和持有合法化。但也不全是好消息。加密货币交易所将需要遵守报告要求,包括真实姓名验证。对于一些小型交易所来说,这可能是困难的。


中国中央政府也对区块链技术表现出了更大的兴趣。它将向中国人民银行提供470万美元,用于研究和开发其区块链贸易融资平台。但当韩国和中国都在展望未来时,法国却在观望自己的脚步。很明显,法国银行集团法国巴黎银行正在阻止客户向Coinbase汇款。他们说,这是“非法行动”。


如今,采矿是一项昂贵的业务,比特币矿工需要大量昂贵的设备和廉价的电力,才能从每天发放的价值1400万美元的比特币中分一杯羹。但值得记住的是,比特币并不是唯一拥有采矿奖励的货币,采矿当然也不是从加密货币中获得回报的唯一途径。资产评级机构晨星公司(Morningstar)刚刚对以区块链评级发行的证券进行了评级。这些证券来自FAT Brands,这家食品公司以FAT Burger、Buffalo 's和Penderosa Steakhouse而闻名。该安全的结构包括大量Ethereum令牌,以简化数字表示。晨星公司表示,此举将提高透明度。支付宝在金融技术方面也变得越来越有创意。它正在向其界面添加lite应用程序。那里可能有可供交流的经验。

 

Bitcoin has been on a downward streak for the last week, down around 15 percent over the last seven days. That’s bad but it could be worse. You might have put your money in stocks. Some people, though, remain optimistic. RT’s Max Keiser predicts that the coronavirus will push Bitcoin up to $100,000, and JPMorgan’s CEO Jamie Dimon will be begging the Fed for money to buy coins. Dimon might want to diversify though.

 

Brian Armstrong, CEO of Coinbase, has suggested that it might not be BTC that pushes the number of cryptousers from 50 million to 5 billion. He didn’t say which coin would do the job but it’s likely to be one that uses decentralized finance protocols, or DeFi. Bitcoin still isn’t one of them. And in the meantime, the Bitcoin clock keeps ticking. Less than two months to go now before the next halving.

 

YouTube is still banning videos about cryptocurrencies, and as always, it’s never clear which videos they want to remove and which they’re willing to keep. US congressman Paul Gosar (R-AZ) is trying to bring some clarity but only to the regulation of cryptocurrencies. His new bill, the “Crypto-Currency Act of 2020” tries to categorize different kinds of crypto assets and assign them to appropriate regulators.

 

Government has also been busy in South Korea. The country’s National Assembly has legalized cryptocurrency trading and holding. It’s not all good news though. Cryptocurrency exchanges will need to comply with reporting requirements, including real name verifications. That could be difficult for some small exchanges.

 

China’s central government is also showing more interest in blockchain technology. It’s giving $4.7 million to the People’s Bank of China to research and develop its blockchain trade finance platform. But while Korea and China are looking forward, France is looking at its feet. It’s become clear that French banking group BNP Paribas is stopping customers sending funds to Coinbase. It’s “an illegal operation,” they say.

 

Mining is now an expensive operation, with Bitcoin miners needing heaps of expensive equipment and cheap electricity to take a cut of the $14 million worth of Bitcoin handed out in rewards every day. But it is worth remembering that BTC isn’t the only coin with mining rewards, and mining certainly isn’t the only way to generate returns from cryptocurrencies. Asset rater Morningstar has just rated securities issued on a blockchain. The securities come from FAT Brands, the food company best known for Fat Burger, Buffalo’s, and Penderosa Steakhouse. The security was structured in a way that included a number of Ethereum tokens to ease digital representation. Morningstar says the move will improve transparency. Alipay, too, is getting creative with its fintech. It’s adding lite applications to its interface. There may be lessons there for exchanges.
