How U.S. authorities forgot to seize $400,000 worth of fake Bitcoin linked to Silk Road

Shitforks lurk in the wild – Despite its closure by the authorities in 2013, the black market Silk Road is still the talk of the town.

It turned out today that many corners from Bitcoin (BTC) forks have not (yet?) been recovered by law enforcement on the wallets seized since then.
More than $1 billion worth of BTCs from 2013

The offline shutdown of Silk Road and the arrest of its founder, Ross Ulbricht, in 2013 were also an opportunity to freeze the Bitcoin Supersplit wallets belonging to this darknet black market.

These addresses thus remained frozen long before the king of cryptos knew the slightest direct fork – Litecoin and Dogecoin, which date from that time, are indeed separate blockchains, not BTC forks.

The blockchain transaction analysis company Coinfirm noticed that some of the (too) many Bitcoin forks had not been recovered by the American authorities.

The latter announced that they had seized 69,370 Bitcoins, or about $1.3 billion, from an anonymous person who allegedly hacked into the famous black market wallets.

Although the authorities obviously thought of recovering the most famous forks, such as Bitcoin Cash (BCH) and even BSV, others were left out.
400,000 dollars of forgotten shitforks

According to Coinfirm, the hacker – who would not have been bothered in exchange for his collaboration – would still have at least $400,000 worth of cryptomoney from forks on his address. This would be :

  • 693,701 Bitcoin Diamond (BCD), valued at 310,000 dollars;
  • 69,370 Super Bitcoin (SBT), valued at approximately $66,000;
  • 69,370 Bitcoin Private (BTCP), valued at approximately $11,000.

Thus, anyone with access to the private keys of the hacker’s wallet can still dispose of these untapped funds.

This discovery was made possible by Coinfirm’s new Reclaim Crypto service. This service makes it possible to find all the cryptos from forks that may have been „forgotten“ (if they were ever known) by the owners of BTC wallets.

„(…) the police authorities could, without knowing it, leave important funds accessible to the suspects instead of taking them into account and seizing them correctly“.
Coinfirm Report

The old Bitcoin wallets are real forks to the point where it is difficult to find your way around. In this case, a real shitcoin nest that we’d rather forget!

Security breaches cost crypto investors $ 7.6 billion since 2011: Crystal report

Crystal Blockchain has published a report on all major security incidents in the blockchain space since 2011.

Since 2011, malicious actors have managed to steal the equivalent of approximately $ 7.6 billion in funds.

The report noted that US-based exchanges are the most targeted, while Japanese exchange CoinCheck holds the record for the biggest hack

Crypto analysis firm Crystal Blockchain has released a report detailing all the major security breaches, fraudulent activity, cyber terrorism and scams in the cryptocurrency arena since 2011.

According to the report , since the emergence of the Bitcoin Circuit markets, 113 security attacks and 23 fraudulent schemes have resulted in the theft of crypto assets worth around $ 7.6 billion. As a press release announcing the report points out, this figure is equivalent to Monaco’s GDP.

The report highlighted some key findings, including on the most common places of exchange security breaches.

Unsurprisingly, these are the countries with the most developed crypto markets, namely the United States, United Kingdom, South Korea, Japan and China

The United States, in particular, appears to be a major target. Since the inception of the blockchain ecosystem, U.S.-based crypto services have been targeted by malicious actors a total of 13 times. In terms of stolen value, however, China remains the leader.

Coincheck in Japan takes the title of the biggest hack to date, with a loss of $ 535 million. Crystal also cited hackers‘ preferred methods, “the most popular method of crypto theft is infiltration of exchange security systems”.

The report ends with a section of predictions from Crystal’s security experts. These predictions are hardly optimistic: “Over the next two years, as the number of blockchains continues to grow, and the methods and technologies used by illegal hackers continue to improve and develop, we can assume that the number of hackers will also continue to increase ”.

Crystal says that with an adequate mode of corrective action, the damage caused by scams and hacks, especially in the case of “hot wallets”, could be mitigated. Overall, the report leaves little reason to believe that the latest Harvest Finance infiltration will be anything but the next installment in a long list of warnings.

Heeft een DeFi-broekje nog zin? Nee, zegt exec

Heeft een DeFi-broekje nog zin? Nee, zegt exec

Tot een paar maanden geleden was DeFi een behoorlijke rage in het ecosysteem. De laatste tijd lijkt de ruimte echter wat stoom te hebben verloren, met veel projecten die er niet in slagen om de vroege winst te behouden. Begrijpelijkerwijs zijn velen in de gemeenschap sindsdien sceptischer en voorzichtiger geworden over de ruimte. CEO van Bitcoin Bank enn Three Arrows Capital Su Zhu is een van hen nadat hij onlangs waarschuwde tegen DeFi shorts.

In feite beweerde Zhu ook dat ze geen goede risk/reward ratio hebben, in vergelijking met de Amerikaanse dollar, in een tweet.

Aan de andere kant zou een lang DeFi/ETH-kruis zinvol zijn, zei Zhu, vooral omdat „de projecten van het hoogste niveau het niveau naderen waarop langetermijninvesteerders fiat zouden inzetten“. Verder verwacht de exec dat 95% van de DeFi-munten in de komende maanden lager zullen zijn dan Bitcoin.

Dit is een interessante voorspelling, vooral omdat dit verder bijdraagt aan het verhaal dat de DeFi rage kan verdampen als Bitcoin blijft stijgen. Het lijkt er ook op dat nieuw geld dat de markt betreedt alleen Bitcoin wil, althans op dit punt.

Geen ico rage deze keer en Defi 2.0 bleek tot nu toe een blindganger te zijn.

– Michael (@michaelgraub) 27 oktober 2020

Interessant is dat de huidige voorspelling van Su Zhu ook in tegenspraak is met wat veel handelaren en crypto-influencers in het verleden hebben bepaald. In feite geloofden de meesten dat de altcoins die door de projecten van DeFi werden gesteund, een zekere mate van verfijning hadden en in de nieuwe maanden zouden blijven stijgen.

De meeste van de meest populaire DeFi-projecten zoals Synthetix ($SNX) en Yearn Finance (YFI) zijn echter allemaal met meer dan 50% gedaald sinds ze hun ATH’s hebben aangeraakt.

Bron: DeFi Pulse

De grafiek in bijlage benadrukt hoe Synthetix’s Total Value Locked (TVL) aanzienlijk is gedaald van zijn recordhoogte van $1.028 miljard, slechts twee maanden geleden. Interessanter is dat Synthetix en Yearn Finance ondanks de enorme waardedalingen nog steeds tot de top 10 projecten van TVL behoren, zoals vermeld door DeFi-puls.

De verwachting was dat deze projecten de komende maanden zouden blijven stijgen, maar het lijkt erop dat het momentum de laatste tijd is vertraagd.

Zoals Su Zhu al snel aangaf, is de verwachting dat 95% van de DeFi-munten lager zal zijn dan de Bitcoin, waardoor er nog 5% kans is op het verdienen van alfa op de ‚juiste keuze‘ van een DeFi-munt. Echter, zoals te zien is bij $SNX en $YFI, zijn penningen die zeer populair zijn ook niet immuun voor marktbrede afschrijvingen.

Haussier: un énorme modèle H&S se développant dans Bitcoin avec un objectif de 20K $ chez ATH

L’analyste populaire de Bitcoin Carl Martin a partagé un graphique BTC qui suit un schéma inversé de la tête et des épaules. Selon cette configuration, la meilleure crypto-monnaie pourrait bientôt atteindre son précédent record de 20000 $.

Après un rallye assez volatile à 13000 $, l’action des prix du bitcoin s’est un peu tempérée. Mais les arguments en faveur de gains futurs restent solides, selon une configuration technique que le célèbre analyste de BTC basé sur Youtube et Twitter, Carl Martin, a partagée aujourd’hui. Cela fera sûrement monter en flèche les niveaux de houblon des taureaux. Selon lui, la meilleure crypto-monnaie atteindra bientôt le précédent record de 20000 $. Mais il y a un hic.

La route de Bitcoin à 20000 $ en 2020 a une tête et des épaules inversées

Selon une configuration inversée de la tête et des épaules (IH&S) partagée par Carl, qui, soit dit en passant, s’appelle „ TheMoon “, le prix du Bitcoin Revolution a déjà effacé les deux premières étapes du modèle IH&S. Sur cette base, Carl a fait remarquer que l’objectif de prix de 20 000 $ est plus proche qu’il n’y paraît.

De manière générale, les acteurs du marché considèrent IH&S comme l’un des indicateurs haussiers à l’exception de la croix d’or et de certaines formations en coin. Les courses de prix explosifs suivent la réussite d’un modèle IH&S. Parfois, les cibles à l’envers ressemblent à la hauteur du creux du milieu.

Comment cette configuration se déroule-t-elle?

Selon l’analyste, le graphique des prix du bitcoin a imprimé le premier creux IH&S vers le début de cette année, lorsque BTC s’est rallié en réponse aux conditions géopolitiques en cours. La formation suivante était après le crash du jeudi noir en mars. C’est à ce moment que le prix du bitcoin est tombé à 3858 $. Et puis, après un bref accès de trading latéral, a commencé à se rassembler vers le début avril fin mai.

La BTC a formé le troisième creux d’IH&S après avoir repris après le crash de septembre (après une phase commerciale stable, bien sûr). Il s’agit du rallye actuel au cours duquel le bitcoin a dépassé le sommet de cette année et atteint 13200 $. Carl a déclaré que le prochain arrêt était de 19700 $, mais pour cela, BTC doit publier une clôture hebdomadaire au-dessus du „ décolleté “ délimité. Mais cela arrivera-t-il?

MicroStrategy, Square & Bitcoin: qu’est-ce que ces investisseurs voient que les autres ne le sont pas?

Tout comme Paul Tudor Jones a mis son argent sur le cheval Bitcoin, le gros pari Bitcoin de MicroStrategy et l’achat de 50 millions de dollars de BTC par Square ont choqué le marché. Cependant, devrions-nous être choqués en premier lieu?

Contrairement aux deux premiers, la tendance haussière du Bitcoin de Square est depuis longtemps publique. CashApp autorise déjà Bitcoin et uniquement les achats Bitcoin et le PDG Jack Dorsey est probablement le plus grand taureau Bitcoin de la Silicon Valley en ce moment.

Je veux dire, il maximise ses achats de Bitcoin chaque semaine. Pour le contexte, cela représente 10000 dollars de Bitcoin chaque semaine

Pour plus de contexte, le prix de négociation quotidien moyen de Bitcoin est de 9196 $ et 40 semaines se sont déjà écoulées dans l’année, ce qui signifie que Dorsey a acheté en 2020 seulement 44,1 Bitcoins. Si cela ne souligne pas son optimisme pour Bitcoin, rien ne le fait.

Donc, revenons à la tendance Bitcoin, à la suite du pivot de Square, MicroStrategy et PTJ – Leurs mouvements respectifs pour favoriser la crypto-monnaie sont intervenus immédiatement après le crash de mars et la renaissance ultérieure de la crypto. Alors que d’autres actifs tels que les actions technologiques et, dans une certaine mesure, l’or, ont également connu des résurgences fortes, sinon plus fortes et plus stables, Bitcoin reste toujours favorisé.

Ces investisseurs aux poches profondes voient-ils quelque chose que nous ne sommes pas? En termes simples, non, ils ne le sont pas

Le renouveau du Bitcoin après mars a été une tendance sur laquelle tout le marché s’est rallié, au détriment de ce à quoi il est mesuré – la monnaie fiduciaire. En fait, selon un récent rapport de Chainalysis Markets Intel , depuis la baisse de mars, le changement de direction de Bitcoin en fiat a pris un virage serré. Plus comme un virage en V, en fait.

Le rapport indique qu’après mars, les investisseurs fiat ont «continué à exiger Bitcoin» et ici, «exigeant» fait référence à la demande de Bitcoin pour la monnaie fiduciaire. Avant la baisse de mars , le rapport affirmait que Bitcoin était sur le point de sortir, pour fiat. C’est intéressant car au premier trimestre de cette année civile, Bitcoin a transféré plus de 10000 dollars deux fois après avoir commencé à 7000 dollars. Ergo, même à ce niveau, la crypto était en train d’être expulsée.

Coinbase adds instant withdrawals for European and American users

The San Francisco-based Coinbase cryptomorphine exchange announced today that it has added support for instant withdrawals in nearly 40 countries, including the US, UK and many in Europe.

The problem it claims to solve is that so far today’s announcement, withdrawals at Coinbase can take several days. Now they are, at least in theory, instantaneous.

According to the Coinbase help page, in „most cases“ withdrawals to users in these jurisdictions will be completed in 30 minutes, „however, processing can take up to 24 hours.

A caveat, however, is that in the UK and Europe you will have to use Crypto Bank a Visa debit card that accepts instant withdrawals. For the US, you can use a Visa or Mastercard.

Hackers fecham fronteiras na Argentina com pedido de resgate de $4 milhões de bitcoin

Um ataque de resgate de cibercriminosos exigindo Bitcoin levou ao fechamento temporário das fronteiras internacionais da Argentina.

  • Um ataque de resgate por cibercriminosos exigindo Bitcoin levou ao fechamento temporário das fronteiras internacionais da Argentina. Os hackers comprometeram a agência de imigração argentina com o resgate e exigiram US$ 4 milhões em Bitcoin.
  • O ataque colocou os escritórios de imigração e postos de controle fora de serviço por quatro horas.
  • Os atacantes foram posteriormente identificados pelas autoridades como NetWalker, uma operação de resgate que tem como alvo as redes de computadores corporativas.

A agência de imigração argentina, Dirección Nacional de Migraciones (DNM), foi vítima de um ataque de resgate que interrompeu temporariamente os postos de fronteira, com hackers exigindo US$ 4 milhões em Bitcoin.

O ataque foi relatado pela primeira vez pelo governo argentino em 27 de agosto à agência de crimes cibernéticos do país, após várias ligações de postos de controle de fronteira sugerirem que suas redes de computadores estavam comprometidas, segundo o site de notícias de segurança Bleeping Computer.

As 5 principais notícias e recursos criptográficos na sua caixa de entrada todos os dias

As autoridades fronteiriças descobriram que seus sistemas de computador, incluindo aplicativos Microsoft e pastas compartilhadas, foram atingidos por um vírus não identificado em pequenas horas. Eles agiram rapidamente e desligaram os servidores centrais para impedir que o vírus se propagasse para outros sistemas.

Como conseqüência, todos os escritórios de imigração e postos de controle argentinos foram colocados fora de serviço por quatro horas até serem novamente colocados on-line.

„O Sistema de Captura de Migração Abrangente (SICaM) que opera em travessias internacionais foi particularmente afetado, o que causou atrasos na entrada e saída para o território nacional“, declarou o DNM.

Atacantes de resgate exigem US$ 4 milhões em Bitcoin

Os atacantes foram posteriormente identificados pelas autoridades como NetWalker, uma operação de resgate que tem como alvo as redes de computadores corporativas. Seu padrão usual de ataque é criptografar – ou colocar uma senha em todos os aplicativos Microsoft, como Word, Excel e Office, na rede da vítima. Um resgate é então exigido em troca da senha.

Os hackers da NetWalker que atacaram a agência de imigração da Argentina exibiram uma mensagem de pagamento que levava a uma página da rede Tor, exigindo US$ 2 milhões em Bitcoin como resgate. Este número foi então alterado para US$ 4 milhões após sete dias, aproximadamente 355 Bitcoin na época, conforme o relatório.

No entanto, os funcionários não cederam. Eles disseram ao Infobae, um veículo de notícias local, que „não negociarão com hackers e também não estão muito preocupados em obter esses dados de volta“.

O relatório observou que enquanto os ataques cibernéticos contra empresas locais e administrações municipais são comuns, uma das maiores empresas de telecomunicações da Argentina foi atingida por um ataque de resgate em julho – este pode ter sido o primeiro caso envolvendo a Bitcoin a ter afetado diretamente os controles de fronteira de uma nação.

O Ransomware cresceu nos últimos anos, com os hackers freqüentemente exigindo pagamentos em Bitcoin ou outras moedas criptográficas. Estimativas recentes sugerem que o custo dos ataques de resgate às empresas totaliza cerca de US$ 170 bilhões anuais; as vítimas recentes incluem a empresa de gerenciamento de viagens CWT, a Universidade de Utah (outra vítima da NetWalker) e até mesmo serviços de saúde vitais que respondem à pandemia do coronavírus.

Ripple as a solution for central banks? – World Economic Forum mentions XRP with CBDCs

With XRP, Ripple has been trying to appeal to various banks and payment service providers for years. But so far, interest in the USD startup’s payment solutions has been modest. Although Ripple already has many large banks under contract, the interest is almost exclusively directed towards the RippleNet, which works without XRP.

There is currently a lot of discussion in the Ripple community about digital currencies of the central bank (CBDC) and how could it be otherwise, Ripple will play a central role with XRP . The fans usually refer to the World Economic Forum (WEF), which mentioned XRP in connection with CBDCs in a report earlier this year.

World Economic Forum mentions XRP

In a report released earlier this year, the WEF found that central banks and government agencies are examining the potential of CBDCs to solve persistent global financial problems such as financial integration and payment system stability. The Geneva-based international organization also made a clear distinction between CBDCs and cryptocurrencies.

The CBDC is a digitized version of a sovereign currency that is created and issued by the country’s monetary authority and is a liability of the country’s monetary authority. The CBDC is different from other forms of digital or virtual currency, including cryptocurrencies like bitcoin and ’stablecoins‘, which are not issued by central banks or are typically legal tender.

Although the WEF draws a clear line between the two forms of digital assets, it names XRP as the most relevant cryptocurrency in the CBDC wholesale room for payments and settlement within or between banks.

Ripple with ODL and XRP for international payments

In a recent blog post, Ripple notes that central banks around the world are in an arms race to develop their own CBDCs. Ripple also explains how central banks can use XRP to facilitate and support the use of CBDCs.

RippleNet’s On-Demand Liquidity (ODL) solution enables financial institutions to trade across multiple global markets in real time using the digital asset XRP, and such a solution can also support the direct exchange of CBDCs. XRP is faster, cheaper and more scalable than any other digital asset, which makes it the ideal tool for bridging two different currencies quickly and efficiently.

All of this certainly doesn’t sound too bad for one or the other. Ripple already has large partnerships with banks, XRP has been in the top 5 cryptocurrencies by market capitalization for a long time, other organizations keep mentioning Ripple and XRP and lots more good news. That is reason enough to believe in a bright future for Ripple and XRP.

Join the millions of people who have already discovered how to invest smarter by copying or being copied from the best investors in our community for a second income. Start now!

Don’t forget the bad fundamentals

But in the end it is always only small glimmers of hope that are regularly thrown at investors. The WEF report is from January 2020 and since then, at least in terms of course technology, not much has changed at XRP. In addition, it must be mentioned that XRP does not stand alone in the field “Payments and settlements within or between banks”. Before that, namely the JP Morgan Coin, which also wants to make a similar solution available to the banks.

What Ripple writes in his blog post is also pure theory. Currently, XRP would not be able to map the volumes that banks send to one another on a daily basis. The trading volume is nowhere near enough and has to be artificially kept alive with market makers. In addition, XRP is dependent on the Bitcoin price and is therefore more volatile than BTC itself.

In addition, Ripple still holds over 55% of all XRP that they sell or invest each month. There is no reason to use a fictitious cryptocurrency that is not linked to any other currency or the like. Unless you want to support the company behind the token in solidarity. Because Ripple’s main source of income is still the sale of the XRP.

Het Zwitserse kanton Zug zal nu Bitcoin en Ether accepteren voor belastingbetaling – een rapport van Sahil Kohli.

Het kanton van Zug administratie kondigde het nieuws op donderdag aan en zei dat begin februari 2021, bedrijven en individuen hun belastingen in de twee belangrijkste cryptocurrencies, bitcoin en ether van maximaal CHF 100.000 ($110.000) zullen kunnen betalen. Het Ministerie van Financiën van Zug heeft voor dit initiatief samengewerkt met Bitcoin Suisse, wat betekent dat de in Zwitserland gevestigde cryptofirma de BTC- en ETH-belastingen van de gebruikers zal omzetten in franken voor het agentschap.

In de komende weken zou een proefproject worden gestart.

Het Ministerie van Financiën van Zug heeft voor het initiatief samengewerkt met Bitcoin Suisse, wat betekent dat de Zwitserse cryptofirma de BTC- en ETH-belastingen van de gebruikers zal omzetten in franken voor het agentschap. Heinz Tannler, financieel directeur van de administratie van Zug, zei dat ze deze nieuwe betaalmethode niet riskeren, omdat we het bedrag altijd in Zwitserse frank ontvangen, zelfs als de betaling in Bitcoin Lifestyle of Ether wordt gedaan. Er zal de komende weken een proefproject plaatsvinden om het nieuwe initiatief te testen, zo onthulde Heinz Tannler. Hij zei ook dat degenen die belasting willen betalen met cryptocurrencies contact kunnen opnemen met het kantonale belastingkantoor. De belastingbetalers zullen dan de noodzakelijke QR-code voor betaling ontvangen, meestal via e-mail, gemelde Sahil Kohli.

De Zwitserse gemeente Zermatt laat inwoners belastingen betalen in crypto.

De Zwitserse gemeente Zermatt had haar inwoners eerder toestemming gegeven om belasting te betalen in cryptokringen. De nieuwe betaaloptie wordt aangeboden via de crypto financiële dienstverlener Bitcoin Suisse. Met behulp van Bitcoin Suisse’s point-of-sale oplossing, geïnstalleerd in het gemeentehuis van Zermatt, kunnen inwoners lokale belastingen betalen in bitcoin. Belastingbetalers moeten bij het belastingkantoor van Zermatt een crypto-betalingsoplossing voor online betalingen aanvragen. Belastingen betaald in bitcoin worden door Bitcoin Suisse omgezet in Zwitserse frank en worden per aankondiging overgemaakt naar de bankrekening van de gemeente.

Il 72% degli investitori terrà Bitcoin anche se il prezzo scende a $0

Un nuovo sondaggio ha rilevato che il 72% degli investitori di bitcoin sono rialzisti riguardo alla cripto-valuta e la terranno anche se il prezzo scende in qualche modo a zero. Un totale di 22.635 voti sono stati raccolti per questo sondaggio.

La maggior parte degli investitori Bitcoin

La maggior parte degli investitori Bitcoin Hodl indipendentemente dal prezzo
L’utente di Twitter Plan B, noto per il suo modello di previsione del prezzo stock-to-flow, ha condotto un sondaggio su Twitter per stabilire quando gli investitori bitcoin venderanno il loro BTC se il prezzo non aumenterà. Il sondaggio si è concluso sabato e sono stati contati in totale 22.635 voti.

„Probabilmente siete rialzisti sul bitcoin, ma cosa succede se il prezzo del BTC non aumenta bruscamente nei prossimi anni? Quando venderai?“

Il piano B ha chiesto ai suoi seguaci. Tra gli intervistati, il 72,1% ha risposto che manterranno il loro BTC indipendentemente dal prezzo, cavalcandolo fino a $0 se necessario.

La prossima opzione più popolare è stata quella di vendere bitcoin quando il prezzo scende sotto i 6.000 dollari, che il 16,2% degli intervistati ha scelto. Nel frattempo, solo il 5,9% ha scelto di vendere quando il prezzo scende sotto i 3.000 dollari e il 5,8% ha scelto di vendere quando il prezzo scende sotto i 1.000 dollari.

„Sono super orgoglioso del fatto che il 72% dei miei seguaci siano degli hard core hodlers“, ha commentato il piano B. „Bitcoin va a più di un milione di dollari o a ‚zero‘ e noi lo cavalchiamo fino in fondo. Visione, convinzione e pazienza sono il nome del gioco. Anche se c’è solo l’1% di probabilità di 1 milione di dollari di BTC, ne vale la pena (l’argomento delle opzioni)“.

Alcune persone hanno offerto volontariamente le loro ragioni per accaparrarsi BTC, anche se il prezzo è in discesa. „Sono rialzista sul bitcoin. Ma anche se si avvicina allo zero, farò comunque hodl o comprerò di più, è un asset non correlato (hedge) per tutti i miei altri investimenti/capitale“, ha scritto un utente di Twitter. Un altro ha osservato che quando il bitcoin diventa „la riserva globale defacto non c’è motivo di vendere, ma solo di usare“.

Alcuni hanno sostenuto che è „altamente improbabile“

Alcuni hanno sostenuto che è „altamente improbabile“ che il prezzo del bitcoin non aumenti, mentre altri hanno detto che „compreranno il dip,“ raccogliendo BTC a basso costo se il prezzo si accumula. Al momento di questo scritto, il prezzo del bitcoin è di 12.251 dollari.

Il mese scorso, Peter Schiff ha condotto un sondaggio simile. „Per quanto tempo ancora il prezzo del bitcoin deve dire al di sotto dei 10.000 dollari prima di gettare la spugna e vendere? Schiff ha chiesto ai suoi seguaci. Su 28.168 voti totali, il 57,5% degli intervistati ha scelto „Me lo porto nella tomba“.

La fiducia degli investitori nel prezzo del bitcoin è cresciuta, come dimostrano altri due sondaggi del Piano B condotti, uno a luglio e l’altro ad agosto. In entrambi i sondaggi, il Piano B ha chiesto ai suoi seguaci cosa pensano che il prezzo del bitcoin raggiungerà prima di dicembre di quest’anno.

A luglio, il 43% degli intervistati riteneva che il prezzo sarebbe rimasto al di sotto dei 55.000 dollari, ma ad agosto solo il 30% pensava che fosse così. Una parte significativamente più ampia degli intervistati nel sondaggio di agosto ritiene che il prezzo del bitcoin raggiungerà i 288.000 dollari.

Nel frattempo, un numero crescente di investitori istituzionali sta acquistando bitcoin. La settimana scorsa la società Microstrategy, quotata al Nasdaq, ha annunciato di aver acquistato 250 milioni di dollari di bitcoin. Recentemente, l’ufficio statunitense del Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) ha chiarito che le banche nazionali e le associazioni federali di risparmio sono autorizzate a fornire servizi di custodia ai clienti.
