Value DeFi loses $ 6 million in “flash loan exploit”

Published Post author

Value DeFi is the next DeFi project to fall victim to a serious attack.

The DeFi project Value DeFi fell victim to a so-called “flash loan exploit” , which caused damage of almost 6 million US dollars

The attacker in question used two “flash loans” from other DeFi projects in order to use them to use the exchange rate differences at Value DeFi to their own advantage. So he just found a “gap in the system” and cannibalized it or “exploited” it.

Explanation: Flash loans are crypto loans that are approved without the borrower having to deposit a corresponding deposit. This is possible because the respective loans are literally repaid “in a flash”, because they still have to be paid within the same blockchain transaction.

At 10:45 a.m. (EST) a crypto user had such a flash loan of 80,000 ETH (more than 36 million US dollars) from the Aave project paid out on Friday. Aave developer Emilio Frangella noticed this unusual occurrence and accordingly pointed it out on Twitter:

Emiliano Bonassi, a self-proclaimed Whitehat hacker and co-founder of DeFi Italy, then reported that the attacker had withdrawn a flash loan in the form of the stablecoin DAI from the DeFi project Uniswap, which in turn corresponded to the equivalent of 116 million US dollars .

As Bonassi further noted, the attacker exchanged the ETH borrowed from Aave for stablecoin funds, then deposited part of the DAI received from Uniswap into Value DeFi’s multi-stablecoin vault, and then made several exchanges between the stablecoins USDT, USDC and DAI carried out in order to “exploit” the differences in the exchange rate within Value DeFi.

In an interview with Cointelegraph, Bonassi explains that the attack was conceptually similar to the most recent attack on the DeFi project Harvest Finance , but that the action against Value DeFi is the most complex exploit he has seen so far. In addition, it would have been “the first time” that an attacker used two flash loans at the same time.

A little later, Value DeFi admitted the attack in the company’s own Discord server:

“We are aware of the current processes in the MultiStables Vault. Please give us time so that we can examine it carefully. All other vaults and pools run normally. ”

Shortly after the exploit was over, the attacker sent an Ethereum transaction to the Value DeFi address , which he used to mock the project’s operators. So he asked sarcastically:

“Do you already know what flash loans are?”
The attacker only paid $ 0.31 in ETH with his transaction, which is further evidence that the news was all about scorn and ridicule.

New day, new hack: Scammers steal $ 2 million from Ethereum DeFi app

Published Post author

With the billions of dollars floating around, it’s no surprise that hacks and software bugs keep popping up in the decentralized finance (DeFi) space.

To name one of the many recent weaknesses of DeFi contracts: Harvest Finance was hacked into stablecoins for 25-33 million dollars – due to a so-called “flash loan attack”.

There was a flaw in the economic logic that the developers at Harvest ignored and that allowed a tech-savvy attacker to withdraw funds.

Similar attack vectors have been exploited with contracts like that of Eminence Finance, an Ethereum- based game that users have invested millions in even though there was no official launch announcement.

The hack transactions on Etherscan

Not to mention, there are a number of fatal mistakes. For example, the developers at (YFI) had to fix a bug that would have allowed a user to steal $ 650,000 worth of stablecoins from one of their products.

The error was similar to the one used to withdraw funds from Harvest. Unfortunately, not all bugs are discovered and eliminated before they are exploited.

MakerDAO’s Stablecoins worth around $ 2 million were recently stolen from the Akropolis app. Akropolis is a full-fledged DeFi protocol that focuses on giving “normal people” the opportunity to save their stablecoins and earn interest. Your savings product has now been exploited by an unknown attacker.

Acropolis Ethereum DeFi application hacked for $ 2 million

Early Thursday, Ethereum analysts and Acropolis users began to notice suspicious transactions in the Acropolis savings product called Delphi.

It quickly became clear that an attack had taken place. Data from the chain indicated that the DAI had been routed from Acropolis to an address that was interacting with the log dozens of times per minute – suggesting something was going on.

Within twenty minutes, the attacker sent dozens of transactions to a number of Acropolis Delphi savings pools, each time subtracting a sum of the DAI from the pool.

A total of 2,030,000 DAI were apparently illegally withdrawn from the Acropolis.

These stablecoins were sent to an address and have been there ever since. The alleged attacker has not yet sent a transaction from the address where the stolen funds are located.

How did that happen?

Crypto asset auditing and security firm PeckShield, which has been focusing on DeFi for the past few months, has broken down the details of the attack hours after it was carried out.

To keep it simple, the attacker used a lightning loan from dYdX to trick Akropolis’ smart contracts into thinking they had deposited funds that the attacker really didn’t have. While some funds were being deposited, the attacker was provided with liquidity tokens worth more than the amount deposited, creating a discrepancy that could result in large withdrawals from the pool.

“The exploit resulted in a large number of pool tokens that were minted without being backed by valuable assets. The withdrawal of these coined pool tokens will then be exercised in order to deduct around 2.0 million DAI from the YCurve and sUSD pools concerned, ”said Peckshield.

Akropolis has also responded to the attack, writing that they are reviewing the code and looking for ways to compensate the affected users of the protocol.

Bitcoin Whale: US government seizes USD 1,000,000,000 in BTC from SilkRoad

Published Post author

A few days ago, a very large bitcoin whale alarm was making the rounds. Almost 70,000 BTC, the equivalent of just over 1 billion US dollars, were moved out of the fourth largest Bitcoin wallet . This was the first transaction since April 2015. Now it was revealed who is actually behind the transaction and what the background is.

Bitcoin Whale: U.S. Justice Department

Last Thursday, the world-famous Bloomberg portal reported the seizure of a gigantic amount of Bitcoin by the US Department of Justice. Accordingly, the enormous sum of 1,000,000,000 USD was confiscated, which came from the activities of the now closed darknet market called Silk Road.

The US Department of Justice said:

The amount seized is by far the largest sum of cryptocurrencies that has ever been seized in the history of the ministry.

According to the investigators, there was a collaboration with the company Chainalysis, known in the cryptospace. The aim of the collaboration was to identify Bitcoin transactions that were directly related to Silk Road. Obviously, this cooperation was successful and 54 transactions were discovered that were generated by an illegal activity.

0.33% of all available BTC in the hands of the Ministry

The Ministry of Justice said:

The flow of money was traced back to a Bitcoin address. Further investigation of this address by the US Attorney’s Office and other investigators revealed that the funds were related to Silk Road. Subsequently, on November 3, 2020, law enforcement authorities seized several thousand Bitcoin, which on November 4 had an equivalent value of over 1 billion dollars.

In addition to this enormous amount of Bitcoin, holdings of Bitcoin Cash, Bitcoin Gold and Bitcoin SV were also confiscated. And so the US Attorney David Anderson ended the statements with:

The successful arrest of the Silk Road founder in 2015 left the question of where the money was going. Well we have the answer. $ 1 billion of criminal activity is now in the hands of the United States.

This solves the mystery of the mighty Bitcoin Whale. It is also interesting that the US government is increasingly becoming a BTC whale. With almost 70,000 BTC now seized, the US Department of Justice alone holds 0.33% of the available supply of Bitcoin.

How the increase in US GDP will influence Bitcoin

Published Post author

Tax risk and fall in interest rates may serve as incentives for investment in Bitcoin

The US GDP grew 33.1% in the third quarter, even in an atypical Pandemic year. In the quarter by quarter comparison, this means a growth of 7.4%. An excellent news for Donald Trump who will dispute the election next Tuesday, November 3. Considering the collapse in the second quarter, this means that the level of real GDP is still 4.5% below its peak.

With the increase of the GDP in the USA and the consequent devaluation of the dollar against Bitcoin Bonanza, an average investment opportunity will arise for investors who will seek in Bitcoin greater profitability and refuge from fiscal and inflationary risk. This premise will be valid both for the USA and for Brazil.

Taking into account current GDP estimates, the US GDP will probably reach a new peak in the last quarter of next year, closing a cycle of monetary expansion and public spending, which at some point will be charged to the stimulus account of more than $1 trillion released last quarter and another $5 trillion being released by the Federal Reserve (Fed) to keep the economy warm. By the numbers presented in the GDP, the stimulus worked.

With everything that happened as a result of Covid-19, one can say that the result of the US GDP is quite impressive and is in line with the result presented by China, which was in the order of 4.9%. This shows that the close cooperation of fiscal and monetary stimulus has been effective, probably avoiding an environment similar to the depression followed by the 2008 crisis.

Japan is ‘main candidate’ for new Ripple headquarters, says SBI Holdings CEO

The latest data also increases Trump’s chances of being re-elected, although he is way behind in betting odds and research. But it was the same in 2016. What’s also surprising is that if you give people money, they will spend it – even with unemployment reaching historic levels, both in the US and Brazil, which already represents 13.3% of unemployed people, according to data released by Ipea.

The solution to the social networks dilemma

Personal consumption grew more than 40% (annualized) in the third quarter. This is a very impressive multiplying effect. So, although we are not out of danger yet – we need a vaccine to get there – things don’t look so bad compared to six months ago. Even the most fragile economies, like Brazil’s, but which was warmer before the Pandemic, the results of the Brazilian GDP in the last quarter, of the order of 5.8%, a better result than expected by the IMF, which was of the order of 9.1%.

A global crisis, but with local results

The Pandemic crisis affected all countries and their economies, each responding to the challenge according to the instruments that their governments and companies had available. The fact that stock exchanges and stock markets show expressive numbers of appreciation ignores the real numbers of the microeconomy, which concern the small neighborhood cafeteria, which closed, while in the macroeconomic aspect, the numbers presented by Starbucks are of growth in the same period. The shares of the coffee chain, valued at US$ 116 billion, have increased 50% so far this year.

WhatsApp Pay should reach Brazil in November, according to Cielo

Increase in US GDP represents an opportunity for Bitcoin

Both countries continue with increasing fiscal risk and low interest rates, creating an environment in which the search for assets with more risks, such as the stock market, or the cryptoactive market, become preferential options for those seeking more profitability.

BitMEX executives have allegedly “looted” $ 440M from the platform to avoid their seizure

Published Post author

Already involved in important legal actions carried out by American institutions, the co-founders of BitMEX are again accused of fraud. A civil action accuses them of having “looted” more than $ 440 million from the platform in order to reduce the funds that can be seized by the authorities.

New episode of the BitMEX affair

A civil lawsuit filed on October 30 alleges that BitQT executives have ” looted ” more than $ 440 million from the platform . Manipulation of funds that would have started in 2019, while government investigations were already underway on the company’s activities.

The lawsuit was brought by traders Vitaly Dubinin and Yaroslav Kolchin against the co-founders of BitMEX’s parent company, HDR Global Trading Limited . The charges are notably brought against Arthur Hayes , Benjamin Delo and Samuel Reed .

“The defendants Hayes, Delo and Reed are notorious fraudsters, who have been charged with criminal offenses related to money laundering by the US Department of Justice and two of them are currently fugitives from law enforcement American, ”underlines the complaint.

SOSventures , a venture capital firm founded by entrepreneur Sean O’Sullivan and having invested in BitMEX , is also believed to be involved.

The lawsuit argues that BitMEX executives engaged in this practice to reduce the amount of assets likely to be seized by the relevant authorities. The table below shows the alleged distribution of funds looted by the co-founders of BitMEX .

A spokesperson for HDR Global Trading denied these claims, telling Coindesk :

“Pavel Pogodin of Consensus Law has filed a series of increasingly bogus complaints against us and others in the cryptocurrency industry. We will deal with this matter through normal legal process and have every confidence that the courts will consider his claims for what they are. ”

Exchanges in the sights of regulators

The accusations against BitMEX and its co-founders are accompanied by other actions on a larger scale.

The platform’s descent into hell began in early October, when the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC), a regulator of U.S. markets, accused BitMEX owners of violating anti-money laundering regulations. .

As a result, a large part of BitMEX users fled the platform, drastically reducing the liquidity of its markets. Less than a week later, Arthus Hayes, CEO of BitMEX, leaving office .

Recently, all eyes have been on Binance , the world’s largest cryptocurrency exchange. The company would have sought to circumvent US regulations, according to a leak of documents shedding light on the existence of an entity called ” Tai Chi “, which made it possible to channel profits to Binance.

These serious accusations were quickly denied by Changpeng Zhao , CEO of the platform. He claimed on Twitter that the said document was not produced by a Binance employee and that anyone can originate such a document.

Either way, regulators and watchdogs around the world are taking an increasingly serious look at the activities of cryptocurrency exchanges. With the billions of dollars flowing through them daily, it’s not all that surprising that their activities are subject to audits.

La comunità Crypto risponde al governatore della BoE sul valore intrinseco della Bitcoin

Published Post author

Il valore intrinseco del bitcoin è stato ampiamente discusso nello spazio criptato per diversi giorni dopo che un’osservazione del governatore della Banca d’Inghilterra (BoE) ha suggerito che l’ammiraglia cripto potrebbe non avere alcun valore intrinseco.

Del bitcoin in una sessione di domande e risposte

Andrew Bailey, governatore della BoE, ha commentato il valore intrinseco del bitcoin in una sessione di domande e risposte con il pubblico all’inizio di questa settimana. Egli è stato citato da Reuters come dicendo:

“Devo essere onesto, è difficile vedere che il bitcoin ha quello che noi tendiamo a chiamare valore intrinseco. Può avere un valore estrinseco nel senso che la gente lo vuole”.

Ha anche detto che le persone che usano il Bitcoin Revolution per i pagamenti lo rendono piuttosto nervoso, dato che il valore della crittovaluta è ancora incerto. Dopo queste osservazioni di Bailey, la comunità dei crittografi ha iniziato a discutere in dettaglio del valore intrinseco del bitcoin.

Anche l’amministratore delegato della società quotata al Nasdaq Microstrategy, Michael Saylor, ha avuto voce in capitolo. Microstrategy ha recentemente acquistato bitcoin per un valore di 425 milioni di dollari per la sua riserva di tesoreria. Saylor ha twittato:

“Bitcoin è il primo sistema monetario digitale in grado di immagazzinare tutto il denaro del mondo per ogni individuo, società e governo in modo giusto ed equo, senza perderne nulla. Se questo non ha un valore intrinseco, cosa lo è?”

Nikolaos Panigirtzoglou, strateghi di JPMorgan, ha scritto in una nota del 13 ottobre sul valore intrinseco di bitcoin che si avvicina al suo prezzo di mercato.

“Il Bitcoin si trova ad affrontare un “modesto vento contrario” a breve termine, basato su un’analisi delle scommesse nel mercato dei futures e su una stima del valore intrinseco della criptovaluta”.

Bloomberg ha riportato gli strateghi spiegando e aggiungendo che il prezzo rimane quasi il 13% in più di una stima del valore intrinseco.

Twitter Crypto Community Awakened

Diverse persone su Twitter sono state rapide nel sottolineare che il bitcoin potrebbe non avere un valore intrinseco definito. Ma anche le monete fiat non hanno un valore intrinseco. La Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis ha scritto un rapporto nel 2018 dicendo:

“Il bitcoin non è l’unica valuta che non ha valore intrinseco. Anche le valute monopolio di Stato, come il dollaro americano, l’euro e il franco svizzero, non hanno valore intrinseco. Sono monete fiat create per decreto del governo. La storia delle valute di monopolio statale è una storia di oscillazioni selvagge dei prezzi e di fallimenti. Per questo motivo le crittocittà decentralizzate sono una gradita aggiunta al sistema valutario esistente”.

L’amministratore delegato di Shapeshift Erik Voorhees ha detto che non esiste un valore intrinseco. Egli ha spiegato:

“Il valore è sempre soggettivo, agli occhi del valutatore … Oro, bitcoin, fiat, riso: nessuno ha ‘valore intrinseco'”.

Anche un altro utente di Twitter, Bob McElrath, concorda sul fatto che nulla ha valore intrinseco, poiché il nome ‘valore’ è il sentimento umano. Il valore cambia di volta in volta e con le circostanze. Chiunque cerchi di convincerti del contrario nella maggior parte dei casi vuole vendere qualcosa a te per il proprio guadagno. McElrath ha aggiunto:

“Nonostante non abbia un valore ‘intrinseco’, il bitcoin ha un modo sofisticato, basato sul mercato, per determinare il suo valore, non solo sul lato della domanda ma anche su quello dell’offerta. Naturalmente, questa affermazione vale per qualsiasi merce”.

Ha optato George Selgin, direttore del Centro per le Alternative monetarie e finanziarie di Cato:

“Naturalmente nessuna merce ha un valore “intrinseco”. Alcuni (come qualsiasi moneta fiat) mancano anche di ‘valore d’uso non monetario’ … l’osservazione della Banca d’Inghilterra che il bitcoin manca di valore intrinseco è un esempio del bue che chiama il bue che dice cornuto all’asino”.

Questo dibattito può continuare all’infinito, ma questo non dissuade gli investitori interessati dal tuffarsi nello spazio del bitcoin. Sempre più investitori istituzionali stanno entrando nel mercato, cosa che molti sostenitori ritengono essere un segno positivo per il futuro del bitcoin e dei cripto in generale.

Bitcoins Lyn-nettverk har oppdaget andre sikkerhetsproblemer

Published Post author

Conner Fromknecht, en utvikler av Lightning, har nylig publisert en avsløring 9. oktober 2020 til adresselistene til prosjektet. Denne avsløringen råder forskjellige nodeoperatører så snart som mulig, da Lightning-utviklerne hadde oppdaget et sårbarhet i nodeprogramvaren til Bitcoin Lightning Network.

Fullstendig informasjon offentliggjort 20. oktober 2020

Slik det ser ut nå, er alvoret i dette sårbarheten uklart, da avsløringen avstår fra å avsløre nøyaktig hvordan denne sårbarheten blir utnyttet. Rapporten antyder imidlertid at utnyttelsen ennå ikke skal brukes i naturen. Tilfeldigvis er mange Lightning node-operatører allerede trygge for det, ettersom feilen allerede var løst fra versjon 0.11 av Lightning Network-programvaren, som ble utgitt i slutten av august.

Likevel var sårbarheten som ble oppdaget av en slik type at avsløringsprosessen måtte forkortes for å beskytte nettverket generelt. Ifølge innlegget vil en fullstendig avsløring av feilen bli utgitt 20. oktober 2020, med håp om at alle nodeoperatører hadde oppdatert programvaren sin da.

Bug Bounties å holde seg trygg

I tillegg til dette hadde Lightning Labs gjort det klart at de planlegger å lansere et nytt, omfattende bug bounty-program i nær fremtid. Dette programmet vil gjøre det mulig for potensielle sikkerhetsspesialister å kreve en belønning hvis de oppdager feil i fremtiden, noe som vil hjelpe Lightning til å holde seg trygg.

Lightning Network står som en Layer 2 betalingsprotokoll som fungerer på toppen av Bitcoin. Mens det fremdeles er under utvikling, tillater det billigere, raskere transaksjoner innen nettverket generelt.

Mindre hikke, men grunnleggende lyd

Dette står som det andre registrerte sårbarheten som ble oppdaget i nodeprogramvaren til Lightning. Bare i fjor hadde Rusty Russel, en Bitcoin-utvikler, funnet en egen sårbarhet som gjorde det mulig for angripere å stjele brukernes midler gjennom bruk av å sende ugyldige transaksjoner. Lightning Labs hadde valgt å ikke avsløre antall brukere som ble offer for dette, men bekreftet at utnyttelsen ble brukt i naturen.

I begge tilfeller av disse utnyttelsene kom det som et resultat av programmeringsovervåkning som var veldig kortvarig. Som sådan har det ennå ikke vært en grunnleggende designfeil i selve lynet, som alltid er bra. Lightning Network er en av de mest lovende måtene å øke hastigheten på transaksjonene i Bitcoin-nettverket, samtidig som transaksjonsavgiftene reduseres.

CoinGate og Bitfinex, viktige aktører innen kryptoindustrien, har allerede adoptert Lightning Network uten noen tilsynelatende problemer fra deres side. Nettverket ser generelt ut til å være fundamentalt robust, med bare noen få kinks på utsiden.

The founder of Yearn Finance says he “does not work for speculators”.

Published Post author

Andre Cronje’s statement: “I test in real situations” is not as bad as it seems.

The founder of Yearn Finance, Andre Cronje, has received a lot of criticism lately when he implemented some smart contracts that ended up losing users’ money. Cronje defended himself in a blog post and explained why he believes he should not be held responsible for those who “mimic” his test contracts.

Cronje often places large disclaimers urging people to treat them with caution and not just go in because he developed it. Little can be done to prevent this, given the unlicensed nature of these products. However, Cronje was sometimes criticised for not implementing contracts in test networks, where no real money could be lost. His adage of “I test in real situations” also alienates some people, as it seems to imply a careless attitude towards safety.

Hacker steals USD 15 million after enthusiasts launch an Bitcoin System unfinished Yearn Finance project
Cronje explained that he actually tests the software in multiple stages. “The statement] exists to discourage people from using systems without research. It doesn’t mean I don’t test them,” he wrote.

Before a contract reaches the main network, it goes through a rigorous process of unit, interaction and composite testing. These ensure that each part of the contract works as intended, down to the individual functions.

However, a key part of that process is production testing to achieve the most realistic conditions. He explained that the main network provides the best possible tools and conditions, which cannot be easily replicated locally. “I discovered problems on the main network that I never encountered locally, I could not replicate the systems on the main network locally and I found errors locally that I could not replicate on the main network,” he explained.

Yearn finance (YFI) gained 36% as DeFi tokens mimic Bitcoin’s upward trend
In addition, there are many versions of existing products such as Yearn Finance that were implemented in the main network without being discovered. “There are more than 22 ‘yearnings’ in ETH’s main network. There are more than 5 ‘YFI’ in ETH’s main network”, he added. In a conversation with Cointelegraph, Cronje said the reason his main projects were never hacked was: “Ironically, because I try in a real situation. With this approach, he says he can iterate on the real problems that arise, rather than relying on auditors to review the pre-production code. “And if people wait until I launch the product, everything will be fine,” he added.

One case of people getting burned on Cronje’s smart contracts involved one such test environment, which was still at least a few weeks away from its public launch.

In addressing these issues, Cronje said, “I don’t develop for speculators. While he said he could not rationally understand the people who rushed into his test environments, he seems to have admitted that a more pragmatic approach may be needed. “I have more to think about here,” he concluded.

The factor and the key use cases that explain the high value of YFI
In the meantime, he pledged not to use his known deployment address for further testing. Given the number of previous contracts that were not discovered, this may be sufficient to prevent further unfortunate events.

The publication follows another instance of people losing money on one of their contracts, an unnamed project often referred to by its token symbol, LBI. The contract was implemented on the main network on October 13 and immediately sparked a flood of people who put their money into it, and many called it “the new YFI”.

It was not the new YFI. Source: ChartEx
The price of the token fell immediately afterwards, with many stories of people losing small fortunes because of it. Many market participants came in for a barrage of criticism against Cronje, blaming him for the loss. It is worth noting that this price drop was not the result of any kind of malfunctioning, as the contracts themselves were not compromised.

El aumento de Bitcoin a $ 12K continúa a medida que nos acercamos a un acuerdo de estímulo COVID-19

Published Post author

El lunes (12 de octubre), el aumento de Bitcoin hacia el nivel de $ 12,000 continúa mientras continúan las conversaciones entre los legisladores de Washington y la Administración Trump sobre el próximo paquete de estímulo fiscal COVID-19.

Desde el 23 de septiembre, Bitcoin Investor ha tenido una buena racha, pasando de un mínimo de $ 10,166 a un máximo de $ 11,485 el sábado (10 de octubre), es decir, un aumento de casi el 13% frente al USD en menos de tres semanas.

Este aumento de precios ha sido impulsado principalmente por dos cosas:

El debilitamiento del dólar estadounidense

Desde el 25 de septiembre, el índice del dólar estadounidense (DXY) ha caído de 94,72 a 93,10 (donde estaba el 12 de octubre en el momento de redactar este artículo).

Optimismo sobre un acuerdo de estímulo importante

Durante los últimos meses, hemos pasado de una propuesta de alivio de COVID-19 de $ 1 billón de los republicanos del Senado el 27 de julio a una propuesta de $ 1.8 billones del presidente Trump el 9 de octubre. Dado que esta última oferta es solo $ 400 mil millones menos que los $ 2.2 trillones solicitados por los demócratas de la Cámara de Representantes y el presidente Trump necesita con urgencia asegurar un acuerdo y que el Congreso de EE. UU. apruebe el proyecto de ley antes de las elecciones presidenciales de EE. UU. del próximo mes, parece que cada día nos acercamos poco a poco a un acuerdo.

Este optimismo ha ayudado tanto a las acciones estadounidenses como a Bitcoin a recuperarse desde el 23 de septiembre. Entre el 23 de septiembre y el 12 de octubre, el precio de Bitcoin ha pasado de $ 10,166 a $ 11,490 (a las 09:55 EDT), lo que representa una ganancia del 13,02% frente al USD. Durante el mismo período, el S&P 500 pasó de 3236,92 a 3501,28 (a las 09:33 EDT), lo que representa una ganancia del 8,12%.

Hace unos minutos, a pesar del confuso estado de las negociaciones de estímulo en Washington, se abrió la bolsa estadounidense; A las 09:40 EDT, el Dow, el S&P 500 y el Nasdaq Composite están todos en territorio verde, con un alza de 0.43%, 0.85% y 1.59% respectivamente.

Hoy temprano, FXStreet dijo lo siguiente sobre el índice del dólar estadounidense: “Aunque está por debajo de la media móvil simple de 200 días, hoy en 96,92, se espera que prevalezca la visión negativa sobre el dólar”.

Con las elecciones presidenciales de Estados Unidos a solo tres semanas de distancia, deberíamos ver más avances en las conversaciones de estímulo esta semana

Mañana (13 de octubre), se espera que Apple anuncie los nuevos modelos de iPhone de este año; esto debería dar un buen impulso al sector tecnológico y ayudarlo a liderar una vez más al resto del mercado de valores estadounidense.

Y dado que Bitcoin se ha visto como un activo con riesgo desde marzo, si el mercado de valores de EE. UU. Sube esta semana, con o sin un debilitamiento adicional del dólar estadounidense, es probable que el precio de Bitcoin también suba.

Market Watch: Bitcoin Tumbles a $10.130 come mercati azionari Finiscono in rosso profondo

Published Post author

Il mercato delle criptovalute ha seguito l’oro e Wall Street perdendo pezzi sostanziali di valore. Il Bitcoin è sceso del 2% a meno di 10.300 dollari.

Dopo aver recuperato un po’ di terreno ieri, il Bitcoin è tornato al suo recente trend ribassista scendendo sotto i 10.300 dollari. La maggior parte degli altcoin seguono con alcuni notevoli cali di prezzo, con il risultato che quasi 10 miliardi di dollari sono evaporati dal tetto totale del mercato.

Bitcoin Dips sotto i 10.300 dollari

Come riportato ieri, la principale moneta criptata ha recuperato alcune delle recenti perdite e ha scambiato intorno al precedente massimo del 2020 a partire da febbraio a 10.500 dollari. Tuttavia, l’asset non è riuscito a mantenere la sua posizione e ha iniziato a scendere nuovamente in caduta libera.

In poche ore, BTC è passata dal suo massimo giornaliero di oltre $10.500 al suo minimo intraday di $10.130 (su Binance). Da allora, l’asset digitale ha recuperato un po’ di terreno e ora è scambiato solo intorno ai 10.300 dollari.

La posizione attuale di Bitcoin lo colloca vicino al livello di supporto a 10.290 dollari. Se BTC si rompe ulteriormente al di sotto, potrebbe puntare verso i 10.200 dollari e i 10.000 dollari psicologici.

L’andamento negativo dei prezzi è evidente nella maggior parte dei mercati finanziari. L’oro, che in genere si comporta in modo simile al Bitcoin, è sceso dal suo massimo di 1.900 dollari per oncia a circa 1.850 dollari.

Anche gli indici più importanti del mercato azionario di Wall Street hanno chiuso in rosso la sessione di trading di ieri. L’S&P 500 è sceso del 2,4%, la media industriale Dow Jones del 2% e il Nasdaq ha perso il maggior valore (-3%).

Il rosso domina il mercato di Altcoin

La maggior parte degli allarmi si dissanguano oggi. L’etereum è diminuito di quasi il 4% e viene scambiato a 325 dollari. Ripple (-3%) combatte per rimanere sopra i 0,22 dollari. Anche Bitcoin Cash, Binance Coin, Coin e Litecoin sono scesi di circa il 3%.

Alcuni allarmi a bassa capacità sono diminuiti di percentuali a due cifre. DigiByte (-18%), Ren (-15%), Orchidea (-13%), Diritti di riserva (-12%), UMA (-12), OMG Network (-10,5) e Algorand (-10%) sono in testa.

Alcune monete si scambiano anche in verde. L’elio è aumentato del 40% dopo essere stato quotato sul principale mercato di scambio di cripto-currency Binance. Seguono uniswap (13%) e HedgeTrade (10%).

In definitiva, però, il tetto del mercato dei cripto-criptatori è sceso dal picco di ieri a 332 miliardi di dollari a 325 miliardi di dollari.
