Futuros de Binância Supera BitMEX em Bitcoin Liquidez Perpétua de Futuros

Principais destaques:

  • O Binance Futures ultrapassou a BitMEX como a plataforma mais líquida para os futuros perpétuos Bitcoin
  • O cenário de derivativos de moeda criptográfica está mudando após as ações legais contra BitMEX e o congelamento da retirada na OKEx

Os futuros de binômios superam BitMEX em Bitcoin liquidez perpétua de futuros

O cenário do mercado de derivativos de moedas criptográficas mudou significativamente depois que as autoridades americanas tomaram medidas legais contra a BitMEX no início de outubro. A Skew Analytics, uma plataforma que agrega dados sobre derivativos em moeda criptográfica, observou que a Binance Futures agora ultrapassou a BitMEX como a plataforma com o contrato de futuros perpétuos mais líquido para Bitcoin BTC, -0,13%.

O spread de Bid/Offer de US$ 10 milhões em contratos futuros de Binance Futures é agora menor do que no BitMEX, indicando maior liquidez.

BitMEX foi superado em liquidez pela Binance Futures, mas também foi batido na frente de juros abertos por outra plataforma. Recentemente, a bolsa de derivativos regulamentada CME tornou-se o mercado com o segundo maior interesse aberto para os futuros Bitcoin System, atrás da OKEx. Apesar disso, a BitMEX continua sendo uma plataforma de negociação muito relevante – somente nas últimas 24 horas, a bolsa movimentou US$ 2,2 bilhões em operações.

Contratos futuros perpétuos permitem aos usuários especular sobre os movimentos de preços das moedas criptográficas, muitas vezes com alta alavancagem. Ao contrário dos contratos futuros regulares, os contratos perpétuos não têm uma data de vencimento, de modo que os negociadores são capazes de manter posições indefinidamente. Dependendo das condições de mercado, os usuários têm que pagar periodicamente uma taxa de financiamento para continuar mantendo sua posição ou receber financiamento de outros comerciantes.

Em termos de volume de negociação, a Binance Futures já é a maior bolsa de derivativos em moeda criptográfica. A bolsa, que oferece mercados futuros para Bitcoin, bem como uma grande seleção de altcoins, movimentou US$ 8,2 bilhões em volume nas últimas 24 horas.

A Binance Futures também está provavelmente recebendo um impulso das emissões na OKEx, que é um dos maiores players no mercado de derivativos criptográficos. A OKEx suspendeu as retiradas em 16 de outubro e não as restabeleceu desde então.

Dependendo de como as situações atuais na BitMEX e OKEx se desdobram, podemos ver mais mudanças no mercado de derivativos criptográficos.

Bitcoin has to stay above this level, otherwise the crash below $ 12K threatens again

It’s been a wild last few days for Bitcoin and the aggregate cryptocurrency market.

Crypto Code has seen consistent gains across the board lately, with buyers and sellers largely at a dead end after being slightly turned down at $ 13,200.

This has resulted in a slight period of consolidation around $ 13,000 with BTC caught in the past two days

If this phase continues in the near future, BTC will have to continue holding above $ 12,800.

One analyst commented that a break below this level could open the gates for a move down to lows of $ 11,900.

Bitcoin and the aggregate cryptocurrency market had a rollercoaster week, with Bitcoin’s earlier weakness being completely erased by the bulls that sent BTC to new annual highs of $ 13,200.

The intensity of this move has created a sense of euphoria and hope among traders and investors who can expect further uptrends in the coming days and weeks.

For this to materialize, the bulls will have to continue to defend against a break below $ 12,800.

One analyst commented that a break below this level could open the door for BTC to a sharp decline towards $ 11,900

Bitcoin is fighting for momentum due to increasing selling pressure

In the short term, Bitcoin’s momentum is slowing somewhat due to strong selling pressure in the region below $ 13,000.

As long as Bitcoin cannot go beyond this region, there is a chance that a decline is imminent in the near future.

At the time of writing, Bitcoin is trading flat at $ 12,985. This roughly corresponds to the price at which it was traded in the past few days.

Any sell-offs have been aggressively absorbed by bulls – which is a positive sign.

Analyst: Here is the level that BTC has to defend

Regarding Bitcoin’s technical outlook, a popular cryptography-focused analyst and trader on the Amsterdam Stock Exchange comments that $ 12,800 is the top tier of support to watch for in the near future.

He claims that defending this level could lead BTC towards $ 13,500, while a denial could cause it to fall towards $ 11,900.

„Bitcoin: As long as there is $ 12,750-12,800, I think $ 13,500 is next. But if it doesn’t pivot, I assume the price will continue to drop towards $ 12,200 and possibly $ 11,900. “

How the entire market will develop in the coming months depends on Bitcoin. Therefore, it is vital for both BTC and altcoin investors that the benchmark cryptocurrency maintain its newfound momentum.

Coinbase Pro zur Liste verpackter Bitmünzen (WBTC)

Coinbase plant, den Handel mit der Münze am 20. Oktober aufzunehmen.

In Kürze

  • Coinbase Pro wird ab 19. Oktober Einzahlungen für das WBTC entgegennehmen.
  • Der Handel wird am 20. Oktober beginnen, falls alles nach Plan verläuft.
  • Es ist noch nicht bekannt, wann das WBTC die Prime-Brokerage-Plattform von Coinbase erreichen wird.

Die Krypto-Börse Coinbase gab heute bekannt, dass ihre „Pro“-Börse ab Montag, dem 19. Oktober, Wrapped Bitcoin, oder WBTC, unterstützen wird.

Das in San Francisco ansässige Unternehmen, das eine der größten Krypto-Börsen der Welt betreibt, teilte mit, dass es am Montag Einzahlungen von WBTC von US-Kunden außerhalb des Staates New York akzeptieren werde.

Der Handel wird am „oder nach 9 Uhr Pacific Time (PT) Dienstag, 20. Oktober, wenn die Liquiditätsbedingungen erfüllt sind“ beginnen. Er wird mit zwei Paarungen live gehen: WBTC-USD und WBTC-USD.

„Wenn die Liquiditätsbedingungen erfüllt sind“ bedeutet, dass Coinbase die Münze nur dann auf den Markt bringen wird, wenn genügend Personen Interesse an der Münze bekunden.“

Es ist unwahrscheinlich, dass dies für WBTC, eine synthetische Version von Bitcoin, die auf Ethereum läuft, ein Problem darstellen wird. Zurzeit gibt es 105.132 verpackte Bitcoin, was einem Gegenwert von 1,2 Milliarden Dollar entspricht.

Für Wrapped Bitcoin ging es Mitte Juni los, als die Bitcoiner begannen, ihr Vermögen für die auf Ethereum basierenden dezentralen Finanzprotokolle (DeFI) einzusetzen – in erster Linie für die Ausleihe ohne Depotverwahrung und dezentrale Austauschprotokolle.

Diese Protokolle bieten lukrative Zinssätze, manchmal über 1.000% pro Jahr – nicht, dass einer dieser Zinssätze einen Monat lang aufrechterhalten wird, geschweige denn 12.

Das WBTC, das von BitGo, Ren und Kyber ins Leben gerufen wurde, ist die beliebteste synthetische Version von Bitcoin; laut einem Dashboard von Dune Analytics hält es 73,7% des Marktanteils.

Die Einführung von Coinbase Pro wird in vier Phasen erfolgen: Transfers, Post-Only, Limits und vollständiger Handel. Diese Phasen ermöglichen es Coinbase, seine Auftragsbücher zu füllen, so dass genügend Geld für einen reibungslosen Start vorhanden ist. Coinbase wird nur dann in die nächste Phase eintreten, wenn der Markt „gesund und geordnet“ erscheint.

Coinbase hat Stillschweigen darüber bewahrt, ob sie die Münze zu ihrem Hauptmaklergeschäft, einfach als Coinbase bekannt, hinzufügen wird. „Wir werden eine separate Ankündigung machen, falls und wenn diese Unterstützung hinzugefügt wird„, schrieb sie im Blog-Post.

Finance Redefined: Can DeFi and on-chain governance change human nature? 7-14 October

Decentralised community governance is not always so decentralised.

This week, one piece of news really caught my attention: Dharma was criticized for supposedly trying to capture the governance of Uniswap.

Dharma is the company behind a crypto exchange and payment application, a kind of bonus based on Square Cash App Ethereum. Or at least that’s what it used to describe: if you visit the website now, you basically only see mentions of DeFi and some very cool images.

Like Uniswap and Compound, Dharma is backed by some traditional Silicon Valley and Coinbase venture capitalists. It is also one of the most expressive „community governance“ members of both protocols, which is shocking, I know.

But I don’t mean to single out Dharma here. They have legitimate interests in the matter given their close integration of products with DeFi, and at Uniswap they are trying to do the right thing for their users who have missed the airdrop.

If you take a walk through the governance control panels at Compound or Uniswap, you will probably see the general problems I see with this kind of „decentralised community governance“ protocol.

Most proposals are submitted by a small clique of stakeholders, usually the team or some highly related company (another name that comes up often is Gauntlet, which is funded by Paradigm, Polychain… and obviously Coinbase). It does not help that, to make a proposal in Compound requires a fully trained technical implementation and 100,000 COMP (worth about USD 10 million).

Of course, you can discuss things on the forums as a small owner. But I have serious doubts that those public forums are where the real decision making takes place. To be fair, the Compound and Uniswap forums couldn’t be more different. The former is a place devoid of life or fun, the latter is full of discussion and accusations.

The rich get richer

Somehow, I feel that the token distribution schemes had a very, very strong effect on that disparity. Uniswap’s „rewarding anyone who has used us randomly in the past“ was definitely much more equitable than Compound’s „let’s distribute tokens without blockage to whoever gets the most capital“.

In general, there is nothing really fair about yield farming launches: the richer you are, the more tokens you receive and the richer you become.

Above all, this is not inventing anything new. It is a corporate board, plain and simple. Corporate boards benefit the team and the already rich who can devote capital to the company, it’s just that with DeFi you get tokens instead of shares.

Honestly, crypto currencies like Bitcoin Hero have always been oligarchic. And that’s fine, that’s human nature. But if we really want to do something different, we have to realize that our actions are leading us down the same path that formed the modern world.

It may be possible to have a truly decentralised system of government, whatever that means, but it certainly won’t happen when we actively reward wealth with control. (And control with more wealth).

The blame games are getting out of control

One story that made me laugh is the sincere belief shared by some that YFI fell because Alameda Research (the company behind the FTX exchange) shortened it.

The block chain doesn’t lie and CEO Sam Bankman-Fried didn’t exactly deny it, so maybe it’s true.

Of course the logical reason for a bull to be irritated by short positions is that by doing so, the bearishers create additional selling pressure. And that is probably true, but we must also remember that they provide additional buying pressure on the way down. It is quite well established that futures, which make short positions much easier, reduce overall market volatility.

Emotions are running high and anger is usually associated with the bottom of a market cycle, so perhaps this news is really good?

But there is another blame game that makes very little sense and suggests that people are still crazy. Andre Cronje, the founder of Yearn Finance, is once again under attack because people „faked“ one of his unpublished projects.

It was basically a proof of concept of non-permanent loss mitigation for other developers to try out. People put up large sums of money and then lost it: one particular address put in 1,000 ETH and got 74 ETH back.

But despite Cronje’s giant, harsh warnings (see below), people continued to criticize this as another example of him „testing in real situations“ and making people lose money.

Except that, well, nothing really happened. The system worked completely as planned, nobody was hacked. This is what usually happens when you accumulate in a random intelligent contract.

So, uh, maybe look at the sign. That way there’s no one to blame and we can all enjoy DeFi again.

Bitcoin und Altmünzen bleiben in einem stetigen Aufwärtstrend

Der Bitcoin-Preis hält die Unterstützung von 11.300 USD und könnte seinen Aufwärtstrend wieder aufnehmen.

Ethereum handelt über USD 380, XRP hat den Widerstand von USD 0,260 erneut getestet.

Der Bitcoin-Preis korrigierte unter 11.500 USD, aber Einbrüche wurden nahe 11.350 USD unterstützt. BTC zeigt derzeit (13:00 UTC) positive Anzeichen, muss jedoch oberhalb von 11.550 USD an Schwung gewinnen, um seinen Aufwärtstrend in naher Zukunft wieder aufzunehmen.
Die meisten wichtigen Altmünzen kletterten höher und wurden mit einem zinsbullischen Winkel gehandelt, darunter Ethereum, XRP, Litecoin, Bitcoin Cash, EOS, XLM, LINK, BNB, TRX und ADA. ETH/USD ist um 4% gestiegen und wird nahe dem Niveau von USD 385 gehandelt. XRP/USD gewann wieder an zinsbullischem Momentum, hat aber Schwierigkeiten, die Widerstandszone von USD 0,260 zu überwinden.

Gesamte Marktkapitalisierung

Nach einer kurzfristigen Abwärtskorrektur fand der Bitcoin Future Unterstützung nahe der Marke von 11.350 USD. Die BTC kletterte höher, aber es scheint, als hätten die Bullen Mühe, bei über 11.550 USD an Stärke zu gewinnen. Ein erfolgreicher Abschluss über USD 11.550 könnte den Preis weiter in Richtung USD 11.700 steigen lassen. Der nächste große Widerstand liegt nahe der Marke von 11.800 USD.
Auf der Abwärtsseite ist das Niveau von USD 11.300 eine anständige Unterstützungszone. Die erste große Unterstützung liegt in der Nähe der 11.200 USD, unterhalb dieser Marke könnte der Kurs die Unterstützung von 11.000 USD wieder aufnehmen.

Ethereum-Preis

Der Äthereumpreis blieb über 370 USD und 375 USD gut geboten. Die ETH gewann wieder an Stärke und kletterte über 385 USD. Die aktuelle Preisentwicklung ist positiv, aber der Preis könnte auf Hürden nahe 390 USD und 392 USD stoßen. Ein klarer Bruch über 392 USD könnte die Chancen auf weitere Kursanstiege erhöhen.
Auf der Abwärtsseite stellt das Niveau von 375 USD eine starke Unterstützung dar. Weitere Verluste könnten vielleicht die Türen für einen stärkeren Rückgang in Richtung des Unterstützungsniveaus von 365 USD öffnen.

Bitcoin-Bargeld, Kettenglied und XRP-Preis

Der Barzahlungspreis von Bitcoin gewinnt oberhalb der Widerstandsgrenzen von USD 235 und USD 240 an Tempo. BCH testet das Niveau von USD 245, und es scheint, dass die Bullen einen Test des Widerstands von USD 250 anstreben. Ein klarer Durchbruch über die USD 250-Marke könnte das Tempo für einen Schub in Richtung der USD 265-Marke vorgeben. Auf der Abwärtsseite könnte der Wert von USD 240 als angemessene Unterstützung fungieren.

Chainlink (LINK) konsolidiert die Gewinne oberhalb der Niveaus von USD 13,00 und USD 13,20. Der Kurs zeigt positive Anzeichen dafür, dass er seinen Aufwärtstrend über die Niveaus von USD 13,40 und USD 13,50 wieder aufnehmen könnte. Der nächste Schlüsselwiderstand liegt immer noch nahe dem Niveau von USD 13,80, oberhalb dessen der Kurs USD 14,20 testen könnte.

Der XRP-Preis blieb über der Unterstützung von USD 0,255 und testete erneut den Widerstand von USD 0,260. Der Kurs zeigt derzeit positive Anzeichen, und er könnte einen weiteren Versuch unternehmen, das Niveau von 0,260 USD zu überwinden. In diesem Fall könnte der Preis stetig in Richtung der 0,272 USD-Marke steigen.

Der Markt für andere Altmünzen heute

In den letzten Stunden kletterten viele Altmünzen über 5%, darunter OCEAN, SNX, NXM, UNI, PMA, ADA, BAL, STORJ, XTZ, ZRX, GNT, QNT, AVAX, ICX, HYN, KSM und WAVES. Von diesen zeigt der SNX positive Zeichen über USD 4,50, und er könnte sich in Richtung USD 5,00 beschleunigen.

Insgesamt hält Bitcoin wichtige Unterstützungen und könnte stetig in Richtung USD 11.550 und USD 11.700 steigen. Um stark zu steigen, muss die BTC die Widerstandsmarke von USD 11.800 überwinden. Umgekehrt könnte der Kurs in Richtung der Unterstützung von USD 11.200 fallen.

Twitter hacking could have serious electoral consequences, says New York

The July 15 BTC scam, which involved hacking high-profile Twitter accounts, demonstrates weak election security, according to a report from the New York State Department of Finance.

The report says public institutions are „falling short of the new challenges posed by social media.“

The report recommended the creation of a new social media regulator.

The Trust Project is an international consortium of news organizations based on transparency standards.

The July 15 Twitter hack not only compromised the accounts of millions of users, but also led to the theft of over $ 118,000 in Bitcoin (BTC). New York authorities warn the hack demonstrated a weakness that could have serious implications for the U.S. election.

A $ 118,000 hack

On July 15, a Florida teenager could have hacked into the Crypto Trader network using a simple phishing technique. After hijacking the accounts of Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos and President Barack Obama, the high school student demanded Bitcoin in a classic scam.

In the end, the culprit was awarded around $ 118,000, security was restored, and a suspect was arrested. However, the attack revealed just how vulnerable Twitter was. Additionally, once the hack became apparent to Twitter’s security team, they realized there was no elaborate mechanism in place to stop the hack. At the time of the attack, Twitter decided to simply lock down all verified members until everything was back to order.

On October 15, the New York State Department of Finance released a report on the hack , highlighting the negative implications it could have on the controversial US election on November 3, 2020.

Easy hacking

The problem, according to the report, is twofold. On the one hand, the attack was not very sophisticated. Graham Ivan Clark, 17, was ultimately charged with 30 crimes related to the incident . Although apparently tech-savvy, Clark did not need any expertise to complete the attack.

Instead, it relied on a phishing scam. It basically boiled down to calling Twitter employees who had high security clearances, saying he was from IT, and asking them to give him their passwords.

The report cautioned about the importance of this vulnerability:

The extraordinary access hackers gained with this simple technique underscores the vulnerability of Twitter’s cybersecurity and the potential for devastating consequences. Notably, the Twitter hack did not involve any of the high tech or sophisticated techniques often used in cyber attacks – no malware, no exploits, and no backdoors.

The second problem, according to the report, is the influence of Twitter. Twitter has around 330 million active users . These 330 million users have considerable influence. They are not required to meet fact-checking standards and can still support a claim by calling it an opinion.

Most notably, however, Americans receive their news from social media. A Pew Research study found that 55% of Americans get their news from social media „sometimes“ or „often.“ Twitter was the third most popular news portal after Facebook and YouTube.

Interestingly, 62% of respondents believe that social media has too much influence on the mix of information people say.

The big deal

The finance ministry focused on the possible implications of the vulnerability of such an influential news source. He found that the Twitter hack showed how unprepared social media companies are for the threat of a hack:

The Twitter hack demonstrates the need for strong cybersecurity to curb the potential weaponization of large social media companies. But our public institutions have not taken up the new challenges posed by social media.

A single hacker could block some Twitter accounts, causing bias, misinformation or security risks in the next election. With social media being a crucial source of information, this could influence elections.

In the past, many social media companies have been accused of improperly influencing politics. Notably, on October 23, 2019, Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Facebook, testified before Congress on elections and cybersecurity. The issue of Facebook’s Libra cryptocurrency was raised during the discussion.

Jack Dorsey di Twitter sollecita le donazioni Bitcoin per combattere la brutalità della polizia in Nigeria

L’amministratore delegato di Twitter e Square ha esortato i Bitcoiners ad unirsi alla lotta per porre fine alla Squadra speciale antirapina (SARS) in Nigeria.

L’amministratore delegato di Twitter e Square

L’amministratore delegato di Twitter e Square, Jack Dorsey, ha esortato i suoi seguaci a donare Bitcoin System alla causa #endSARS, che mira a porre fine alla brutalità della polizia in Nigeria.

Il sito di criptodonazione a cui si è collegato è gestito da un gruppo di femministe nigeriane che combattono contro la squadra speciale antirapina della polizia (SARS) attraverso proteste, raccolta fondi e social media.

Una serie di manifestazioni è iniziata in Nigeria il 4 ottobre con migliaia di persone scese in strada per protestare contro la brutalità della polizia in Nigeria e per chiedere lo scioglimento della SARS, con l’hashtag #endSARS che fa tendenza.

Anche diverse startup di crypto come BuyCoins e Busha hanno fatto una donazione alla causa.

Ray Youssef, CEO di Peer-to-peer Bitcoin marketplace Paxful, che è popolare in tutta l’Africa, ha anche abbracciato l’hashtag #endSARS, accusando la polizia di aver preso ingiustamente di mira i giovani per l’uso di cripto-valuta. Ha detto che la situazione era una „vera e propria crisi dei diritti umani che si sta verificando ora!

Questa è una vera e propria crisi dei diritti umani che si sta verificando ora! La polizia sta prendendo di mira i giovani imprenditori per l’uso della moneta criptata. I nigeriani hanno brillantemente adottato il cripto in anticipo e lo hanno usato legittimamente per uscire dalla povertà e restituire l’onore alla Nigeria e questa è la loro ricompensa?

Jack Dorsey è un sostenitore di lunga data dei Bitcoin

Jack Dorsey è un sostenitore di lunga data dei Bitcoin. In passato, ha detto che il Bitcoin è „probabilmente la migliore“ valuta nativa di Internet perché è „guidata dal consenso“ e „costruita da tutti“.

La società di pagamenti di Dorsey, Square Inc, ha creato una nuova organizzazione open source senza scopo di lucro per detenere brevetti crittografici. Nella scorsa settimana Square si è unita a MicroStrategy come importante società quotata in borsa con Bitcoin nei suoi libri contabili, dopo aver acquistato 50 milioni di dollari di BTC. La notizia ha fatto notizia anche sui principali quotidiani di tutto il mondo, come The Scotsman, che diceva che la mossa aveva „causato increspature in tutta l’America aziendale“.

Bithumb ready to launch a DeFi platform as Polkadot’s Parachain

The exchange ensures that this will not be just another case of „CeDeFi“.

Bithumb Global, the international spin-off of the Korean crypto currency exchange, has announced the imminent launch of Clover, a blockchain platform Bitcoin Fast Profit designed for decentralised finance and based on Polkadot (DOT) technology.

The company says Clover will be an open platform for DeFi applications, leveraging cross-chain capabilities and linking decentralised finance to centralised exchange.

Clover was developed on Substrate, Polkadot’s custom blockchain framework. Although Substrate enables the launch of independent blockchain, Bithumb plans to launch Clover directly as a parachain, the term used to describe Polkadot’s shards.

Clover will have a native token, called CLV, which will act as both a utility token and governance token. It will be used for staking and consensus, operations on various marketplaces, accumulation of dividends from the use of the platform, and participation in its governance. The community may propose and vote on changes to the platform, with a token equivalent to one vote.

Clover is part of a general trend of centralized exchanges launching its own blockchain for DeFi. To describe these initiatives, Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao coined the term „CeDeFi.

Chris Li, CEO of Clover and former chief marketing officer of Bithumb Global, explained to Cointelegraph that the exchange has a different vision for the platform. „Bithumb will be a major supporter of Clover, and we intend to use Bithumb as a custody solution for cross-chain transactions before Polkadot’s decentralized solutions become available,“ he said.

However, he stressed that Bithumb „will not have the same influence over its chains as Binance does“ as the company intends to attract external partners, including other exchanges.

The chain will include some internal dApps, Li explained, including a decentralized exchange, different types of wallets, and loan protocols. However, the company will encourage and support external teams who choose to develop their products.

As Li explained, the company believes that the next step for DeFi is „transferring assets and value across different platforms,“ and that Bithumb will help drive forward the ecosystems of Polkadot and DeFi in general. In return, the company plans to promote its ecosystem and „acquire new types of users.

Clover will be launched as a parachain, so the publication date depends heavily on Polkadot activating the auctions for parachain positions. „We expect integration into the Polkadot network to take place in Q1 2021,“ added Li. Polkadot’s support has been crucial to the company’s plans for a customized blockchain. In conclusion, Li explained that „Bithumb has previously tried to build chains but to no avail.

IBM: „Blockchain technology is like a painting for medium-sized companies“

Last year, US tech giant IBM tripled the number of its blockchain patents compared to the previous year. This and other signals speak for themselves: there is enormous potential in the blockchain industry. Christian Schultze-Wolters heads the Blockchain Solutions division for IBM DACH. In an interview he talks about IBM’s blockchain-based supply chain management project TradeLens, the digitization of the logistics industry and realistic prospects for encryption technology.

BTC-ECHO: Hello Mr. Schultze-Wolters, what is the interest of an IT giant like IBM in logistics?

Christian Schultze-Wolters: It’s relatively simple: Of course, we traditionally come from IT, but many years ago we geared our entire organization much more towards industries because the IT requirements of our customers are increasingly relevant to the industry. This includes logistics, trade, insurance and banks – accordingly, we have geared our entire organization nationally and internationally to these industries.

BTC-ECHO: Name a specific blockchain application that IBM is currently working on .

Christian Schultze-Wolters: Our TradeLens solution, which uses IBM Blockchain technology. Bitcoin Storm started developing TradeLens with Maersk about four years ago. Maersk is the largest container shipping company in the world and is based in Copenhagen. TradeLens has been live and in production for about two years and now includes more than 180 companies. This means that they have access to the platform, load data on it and digitize documents. In addition, this platform also includes more than 600 ports and terminals worldwide, because it is about the entire ecosystem of ocean freight.

BTC-ECHO: And what advantages does TradeLens bring to the ocean freight ecosystem?

Christian Schultze-Wolters: This solution addresses two challenges. Firstly, the question of where the container and thus the goods of the customer or recipient are currently located. We want to make this information available securely, with high quality and in near real time; not just one company, but the entire ecosystem involved in the supply chain. Second, it’s about targeting this incredible paper addiction in the logistics industry. Because this is inefficient, prone to errors, costs a lot of money and is simply extremely inhibiting when it comes to setting up digital processes.

BTC-ECHO: If companies are interested in blockchain technology in logistics, how easy is it for them to get rid of this “incredible paper addiction”?

Christian Schultze-Wolters: Nothing in life is easy. Digitizing complex processes, such as global supply chains, and bringing them to a platform does not just happen. It’s not about scanning documents and uploading them as PDFs. There are around 25 different document formats that we make digitally available here in the supply chain for everyone involved and that can be processed – in the blockchain. Of these, eight or nine (as of today) have already been completely digitized and can be used digitally on the platform.

But these processes are also very demanding. In addition to the companies that send and receive the goods, you also need customs authorities, shipping companies, ports and other so-called governmental authorities who then also accept these digital documents.

BTC-ECHO: Is IBM making good progress overall in digitizing its projects using the technology?

Christian Schultze-Wolters: The basic procedure for blockchains is “Start small, grow fast” – a so-called blockchain journey. As a result, we generally proceed step by step, customer by customer, role by role, use case by use case, industry by industry, and sort of break the whole thing down into parts, which then enable us to concentrate, purposefully, step by step for the respective use Case and thus the added value for the industry.

BTC-ECHO: What kind of blockchain is IBM building the TradeLens solution on?

Christian Schultze-Wolters : At IBM, we only work with a classic private blockchain, i.e. neither Bitcoin nor Ethereum. The blockchain technology that we use in around 98 percent of all projects is called Hyperledger Fabric. From our point of view, this is the only really “enterprise-ready” blockchain technology.

Trump blokuje rachunek bodźców, podczas gdy regulatorzy kryptowalut błagają o jasność

Trump blokuje rachunek bodźców, podczas gdy regulatorzy kryptowalut błagają o jasność
Trump anuluje rynki wysyłające fundusze COVID na czerwono. Crypto czuje, że Wielka Brytania zakazuje handlu instrumentami pochodnymi.

Trump zahamował nową rundę finansowania stymulacyjnego

Rynki na całym świecie gwałtownie spadły, gdy nadzieje na szybkie ożywienie zostały rozwiane.

Krypto również spadło, ponieważ brytyjskie organy regulacyjne zakazały handlu instrumentami pochodnymi, a Europol podkreśla rolę kryptowalut w przestępczości zorganizowanej.

Żegnaj byki, w tym tygodniu kolej na niedźwiedzie. Rynki gwałtownie spadły we wtorek po tym, jak prezydent Donald Trump potępił propozycję pomocy związanej z wirusami w wysokości 2,4 biliona dolarów przedstawioną przez Izbę Demokratów.

Prezydent ogłosił decyzję na Twitterze, mówiąc: „Złożyliśmy bardzo hojną ofertę w wysokości 1,6 biliona dolarów i, jak zwykle, ona [Nancy Pelosi] nie negocjuje w dobrej wierze”.

Akcje gwałtownie spadły, a Dow spadł o 0,9%, a Nasdaq o 1%.

Ale jednocześnie Trump błagał Kongres USA o szybkie udzielenie 25 miliardów dolarów nowej pomocy płacowej dla amerykańskich linii pasażerskich, które przepuszczały tysiące pracowników, ponieważ podróże lotnicze nie poprawiły się.

Amerykańskie linie lotnicze łącznie spalają 5 miliardów dolarów gotówki miesięcznie, ponieważ ruch pasażerski utrzymuje się na poziomie 30% z 2019 r. Czekając na decyzję rządu, główne linie lotnicze zmniejszą w październiku zatrudnienie o co najmniej 25%.

Firmy Big Tech, w tym Amazon, Apple, Alphabet i Facebook, które cieszyły się rokiem koniunktury, odnotowały gwałtowny spadek cen akcji po tym, jak Podkomitet Antymonopolowy House Judiciary opublikował 450-stronicowy raport opisujący, w jaki sposób giganci technologiczni nadużywali swojej władzy.

Jeśli zalecenia zawarte w raporcie trafią do prawodawstwa, może to ostatecznie doprowadzić do rozpadu części działalności przedsiębiorstw.
