Crypto Custodian, Casa, agora permite que os clientes americanos comprem bitcoin usando suas contas bancárias

Plataforma de custódia de moeda criptográfica A Casa anunciou ontem que os usuários podem agora usar suas contas bancárias para comprar Bitcoin na plataforma. A plataforma disse que está lançando o serviço para seus clientes que estão sediados nos EUA. Também declarou que a Bitcoin comprada seria enviada diretamente para a carteira do usuário.

De acordo com o anúncio, os usuários podem comprar até $200.000 de Bitcoin em um único mês através do novo serviço, com uma taxa de 0,99% colocada em cada compra.

Nick Neuman, diretor executivo da plataforma, disse que os usuários podem comprar a Bitcoin através da plataforma parceira, Wyre. Ele disse que há uma taxa de mineração associada a cada compra porque todas as Bitcoins compradas são enviadas em cadeia diretamente para a carteira do usuário.

As trocas criptográficas também cobram taxas de mineração, geralmente quando os usuários estão transferindo seus ativos digitais para suas carteiras.

Casa Comprar BTC

Taxas de transação baixas
De acordo com a Casa, a taxa de 0,00% para uma única transação representa uma das taxas mais baixas do setor.

A Casa afirma ter um modelo de segurança superior que mantém os investimentos dos clientes seguros, pois dá aos usuários o controle total de seus fundos enquanto mantém os fundos seguros.

Os clientes têm acesso exclusivo às suas carteiras porque têm as chaves. Portanto, eles têm a liberdade de escolher como administram suas contas.

Os custodiantes de terceiros mantêm cerca de 50% de todos os custodiantes Bitcoin por causa do alto nível de segurança que fornecem para o BTC armazenado com eles.

Eles também proporcionam aos usuários total soberania e controle total sobre seus fundos, tornando a rede Bitcoin menos resiliente.

Casa diz que um dos benefícios de contar com a plataforma para a custódia de fundos é que ela reduziu o nível de riscos ou complicações que comerciantes e investidores têm ao manter seus fundos. Os altos riscos são as razões pelas quais muitos Bitcoiners não estão interessados na auto-custódia.

Mas a plataforma Casa se encarregará dessas questões, pois oferece custódia completamente segura dos fundos dos usuários. Um outro benefício é o fato de que seus fundos estão segurados contra qualquer risco.

O processo de aplicação é simples
A Casa informou os usuários sobre como começar a utilizar a plataforma. De acordo com a empresa, os usuários podem usar o botão de conta bancária na tela de compra da aplicação Casa. Eles serão redirecionados ao parceiro de compras da empresa Wyre para completar o processo.

A revisão do aplicativo também não leva muito tempo. De acordo com a Casa, cada revisão do aplicativo do usuário leva de alguns minutos a algumas horas. Uma vez concluída a revisão, uma notificação é enviada ao usuário e ele pode começar a comprar Bitcoin com suas contas bancárias imediatamente.

A empresa diz que seu parceiro de processamento requer uma identificação com foto, bem como suas informações pessoais completas ao processar a compra da Bitcoin. Os requisitos são para garantir que o negócio esteja de acordo com as regulamentações governamentais e proteger as fraudes. Os dados nunca são armazenados no servidor Casa, uma vez que são enviados através do aplicativo Casa.

PlanetWatch brings the air of Milan and Taranto to Algorand

PlanetWatch, a project by a French startup based on the Algorand blockchain, activated 100 sensors to monitor air quality in the cities of Milan and Taranto, Italy.

PlanetWatch is responsible for collecting data on air pollution by recording them on the blockchain. In this sense, the choice of two Italian cities is significant.

On the one hand, Milan, which has always struggled with a high Bitcoin Lifestyle  threshold of pollution and concentration of fine dust.

On the other, Taranto is well known for the presence of the former Ilva now ArcelorMittal. The steel production plant is the protagonist of a bitter debate between those who ask for its closure to save the city from pollution and related diseases, and those who ask for its salvation so as not to compromise the employment destiny of thousands of workers.

PlanetWatch with Algorand to combat pollution
In any case, Taranto and Milan represent for PlanetWatch the first step of an important and wider project. In this regard, CEO Claudio Parrinello said:

„The activation of dense sensor networks in Taranto and Milan is a milestone for PlanetWatch. We are providing cost-effective air quality monitoring solutions for cities around the world. By leveraging communities and citizens‘ associations, together with business partners and advanced technologies, we believe we can raise environmental monitoring standards and help protect public health. We are very grateful to the Algorand Foundation, Wiseair srl and the citizens‘ association of Taranto for their support for our efforts“.

Seal Lee, CEO of the Algorand Foundation, added:

„We are pleased to support PlanetWatch in their global air quality monitoring network. Building on a blockchain with Algorand’s speed and scalability, PlanetWatch can be confident that as their network spans millions of devices and daily measurements, Algorand will be able to comfortably manage data volumes, making them accessible to all.

The sensors will be distributed by Wiseair, which has installed 100 sensors and aims to promote a clean air future. Carlo Alberto Gaetaniello, COO of Wiseair explained:

„Science, citizens and technology combine here to build a new model for fighting air pollution“.

Simona Fersini, from the Committee Citizens and Free and Thinking Workers concluded:

„We support the closure of all highly polluting industrial plants in our city and we hope that these monitoring activities and subsequent developments will help to study the connection between the excess of diseases linked to pollution and industrial production and the need to modify European environmental legislation on permitted emissions“.

In short, PlanetWatch and Algorand are about to play an important role in what will be the future of the former Ilva of Taranto and more generally in changing the environmental policies of the two Italian cities.

Bitcoin stable above $ 12K – but at this BTC rally everything is different than before

Bitcoin’s price has seen significant momentum in the past few days.

The cryptocurrency is currently trading at the highest price it has seen since the end of the summer rally.

This dynamic appears to be the result of the interaction of various factors, including the increasing takeover of BTC by companies.

Just today, PayPal announced that it wanted to make functions for buying, selling and storing cryptocurrencies available to all users

Bitcoin, Ethereum as well as a few other digital assets will be supported with the upcoming introduction.

An analyst also notes that this $ 12,000 breakout is also different from a technical standpoint.

Bitcoin continued its rise today while the rest of the crypto market has largely continued to consolidate.

The lack of momentum seen with Bitcoin Storm could be due to a shift in capital away from Alts and towards BTC.

Bitcoin’s immense momentum has led the asset to new annual highs of $ 12,500. There is some resistance at this level, however, as each twitch has already sparked slight sell-offs.

An analyst now points to some technical factors that show how different this recent surge is from what it has been in the past.

Bitcoin rises due to PayPal news

Today, FinTech giant PayPal announced it was rolling out features that allow users to buy, sell, and store Bitcoin, Ethereum, and a few other digital assets.

This is just one of the notable examples of the Bitcoin proliferation seen over the past few weeks and months.

A few weeks ago, Square – widely viewed as a competitor to PayPal – made the headlines when it announced it would acquire $ 50 million worth of BTC to be held as reserve assets.

The coincidence of this news has helped push Bitcoin towards its current price of $ 12,500.

Analyst: This is how the recent BTC rally differs from previous ones

The main difference between this rally and previous rallies is that it is fueled by positive news about the BTC adoption.

Some technical factors also emphasize differences, as one analyst commented in a recent tweet :

„The other times BTC tried to crack $ 12,000, funding and bonuses were positive. Now they are neutral / negative. So yes, this time it’s different. “

The coming days should provide greater insights into the longevity and sustainability of this ongoing Bitcoin boom.

Über 45.000 BTC zogen sich aus BitMex zurück, seit die US-Regierung Anklagen gegen die Mitbegründer erhob.

Über 45.000 Bitcoin wurden von BitMex abgezogen, seit die US-Regierung gegen die Mitbegründer Anklage wegen Verletzung der AML-Gesetze erhoben hat.

Seit die US-Regierung Anklagen gegen die Börse und ihre Führung wegen Verstoßes gegen Anti-Geldwäschegesetze erhob, wurden über 45.000 BTC von der Börse zurückgezogen. Der 1. Oktober brachte zwei verheerende Schläge für die Derivatekrypto-Börse BitMex. Zunächst erhoben die CFTC und das DOJ Anklage gegen die Börse. Kurz darauf wurden die Gründer der Börse, darunter ihr CEO Arthur Hayes, von der US-Regierung angeklagt. Der Markt reagierte auf die Nachricht mit einem starken Rückgang bei vielen der größten Vermögenswerte von Blockchain.

Über 45.000 BTC zogen sich in weniger als 48 Stunden von BitMex zurück.

Den Daten von Crystal Blockchain zufolge haben die Nettoabflüsse von BitMex in weniger als 48 Stunden 45.000 Bitcoin überschritten. Inzwischen scheinen Gemini und Binance die größten Nutznießer dieser Abflüsse zu sein, gefolgt von OKEx und Huobi. Über 20.000 BTC wurden von BitMex in diese vier Krypto-Börsen transferiert. Es ist unklar, ob BitMex im Abgrund der Zeit verschwinden wird, wie viele gescheiterte Börsen vor ihm, oder ob das Unternehmen überleben wird, um an einem anderen Tag zu handeln. Es wird spekuliert, dass das wahrscheinlichste Ergebnis für die BitMex-Mitbegründer Geldstrafen und das Versprechen wären, sich in Zukunft nicht mehr an ungesetzlichen Aktivitäten zu beteiligen.

Die Mitbegründer planen, die Vorwürfe zurückzuschlagen.

Wie bereits berichtet, haben die Anwälte von Arthur Hayes mitgeteilt, dass der Angeklagte beabsichtigt, die Vorwürfe zu bekämpfen. „Zusammen mit seinen Kollegen hat Arthur Hayes hart daran gearbeitet, ein innovatives, marktführendes Unternehmen in einem hochmodernen Wirtschaftssektor aufzubauen“, sagten die Anwälte Peter Altman und Jim Benjamin von Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld LLP. Die Anwälte von Herrn Dwyer sagten, er werde die Anklage ebenfalls anfechten. Laut der Anklageschrift gab es im September 2018 „Tausende von BitMEX-Benutzern mit Standortinformationen aus den Vereinigten Staaten, die für den Krypto-Handel aktiviert waren.

El CEO de Twitter, Jack Dorsey, critica a Coinbase por su postura no política

Bitcoin, la madre de las cripto-monedas, ha establecido una base sólida para que los líderes mundiales la sigan en la resolución de los duros desafíos de la sociedad.

A medida que el mundo crece a través de los recientes desafíos de la sociedad, las empresas del Valle del Silicio juegan un papel vital en las futuras configuraciones de la sociedad. El CEO de Twitter, Jack Dorsey, un fuerte partidario de la tecnología de cadena de bloques y de la criptografía de Bitcoin, discrepó con el CEO de Coinbase, Brian Armstrong, en el asunto de cómo las empresas deben manejar los desafíos sociales y, al mismo tiempo, centrarse en su misión.

Desacuerdo entre los CEOs de Twitter y Coinbase

Todo comenzó después de que Armstrong escribiera un post medio que destacaba la misión de la empresa en medio de las distracciones de la sociedad: pandemia de coronavirus, disturbios, racismo y próximas elecciones.

Armstrong indica que su empresa se centrará en su misión inicial y, a su vez, cambiará los desafíos globales.

„Quiero que Coinbase se concentre en lograr su misión porque creo que es la forma en que podemos tener el mayor impacto en el mundo. Lo haremos jugando como un equipo de campeonato, centrándonos en la construcción, y siendo transparentes sobre lo que es y no es nuestra misión“, explicó Armstrong.

De acuerdo con Armstrong, las empresas deben mantenerse enfocadas ya que no pueden ser un gato de todos los oficios. „Nunca hay suficiente tiempo para hacer todo, así que las empresas deben elegir el cambio que quieren ver en el mundo y centrarse en él. Puede llevar décadas mover la aguja en los grandes desafíos globales“, indicó el post.

Sin embargo, de acuerdo con Dorsey, el hecho de que las compañías ya estén involucradas en Bitcoin Trader y hayan respaldado la tecnología de la cadena de bloques, es un activismo contra los sistemas financieros no verificables y excluyentes.

Bitcoin y los desafíos sociales

Sobre quién tiene razón y quién no entre las dos analogías en lo que respecta a la solución de los desafíos a los que se enfrenta la sociedad, todo depende de su perspectiva personal y su enfoque del asunto.

Twitter es una plataforma abierta en la que la gente intercambia ideas, mientras que Coinbase está trabajando para impulsar la adopción global de la criptografía y así garantizar la libertad financiera.

Su enfoque es diferente pero lo más probable es que termine resolviendo los mismos retos a los que se enfrenta el mundo hoy en día.

Bitcoin, la criptografía madre, ha establecido una base sólida para que los líderes mundiales la sigan en la resolución de los duros desafíos sociales.

El activo digital ha sido capaz de incluir a personas de todas las etnias del mundo sin un organismo central que lo gobierne. Como resultado, se ha devuelto el poder a la gente. El éxito de Bitcoin ha permitido que otros proyectos criptográficos prosperen en un mercado hostil dominado por las instituciones financieras tradicionales que tratan con monedas fiduciarias.

The founder of MyEtherWallet used to pay his rent by mining Bitcoin

Their great contribution? Mining equipment emits a lot of heat.

Kosala Hemachandra, founder and CEO of the cryptoactive storage platform, MyEtherWallet, was mining Bitcoin to pay his rent in Los Angeles between 2014 and 2015. When it was time to pay his bills, he converted his coins into cash to facilitate the transaction.

Bitcoin-accepting merchants praise the „zero return risk,“ says a BitPay report

In a conversation with Cointelegraph, Hemachandra recalled buying Bitcoin mining equipment at the university while renting a room at a friend’s house. „I bought a Bitcoin miner and then had him in my room,“ she told Cointelegraph in an interview. „I would mine it and the amount I earned through Bitcoin mining was enough to pay the rent for that room, so it was basically free, and then I didn’t have to pay for electricity anymore.

During Bitcoin’s early years, mining proved to be a much more profitable tactic that required less advanced equipment than it does today.

B3i Services AG announces the launch of several improvements to its digital solution „B3i Re“

However, it was not all fun and games. Hemachandra noted ominously that Bitcoin’s mining equipment gave off a lot of heat, making life in that room in Los Angeles a very hot experience. „It’s not as much fun as it sounds,“ she said, explaining that the San Fernando Valley, where she lived, frequently received outside temperatures close to 90 degrees Fahrenheit.

„Since I had a Bitcoin miner in my room, it goes beyond that, and then the air conditioning I had, it barely worked,“ he recalls. „I was barely able to keep it at a level where I could survive.

Bitcoin vs. USD: Only a weakening dollar will push BTC above USD 20,000

Many of the first to enter the Blockchain space express similar feelings, often involving stories of how they used their old digital assets in creative ways.
