IOTA Selected for European Blockchain Pre-Commercial Procurement Project

• IOTA, a cryptocurrency start-up leveraging blockchain technology and IoT, has been chosen to take part in the next stage of testing and development for the European Blockchain Pre-Commercial Procurement.
• The purpose of the project is to investigate the feasibility of utilizing blockchain technology to improve current applications and develop new ones for the European Blockchain Services Infrastructure (EBSI).
• The goals of the EBSI include promoting cross-border mobility, reducing waste, ensuring compliance with E.U. regulations, fostering the growth of technology hubs and projects, and making digital services more reliable and trustworthy.

The European Union has selected IOTA, a cryptocurrency start-up leveraging blockchain technology and the Internet of Things (IoT), to take part in the next phase of their European Blockchain Pre-Commercial Procurement (PCP) project. This initiative is a collaborative effort between the European Commission and the European Blockchain Services Infrastructure (EBSI) to test and develop novel blockchain technology.

IOTA was chosen to take part in the next stage of testing and development due to their experience and expertise in the blockchain field. They have embraced the same core values as the EBSI, which has made them a natural fit for the project. The goal of the project is to investigate the feasibility of utilizing blockchain technology to both improve current applications and develop new ones for the EBSI.

The EBSI is an ambitious project that seeks to enhance pan-European blockchain services through a distributed ledger system. It has several goals, including promoting cross-border mobility, reducing waste, ensuring compliance with E.U. regulations, fostering the growth of technology hubs and projects, and making digital services more reliable and trustworthy.

IOTA believes that this project will not only benefit the European Union, but also the entire blockchain industry. Dominik Schiener, co-founder and chairman of the IOTA Foundation, said, “We are very confident in our ability to bring distributed ledger technology to the European market and look forward to the next phase.”

The European Commission and the EBSI will now work with IOTA to test and develop blockchain technology in order to improve current applications and create new ones. This is an exciting step forward for the blockchain industry, as it will help to bring the technology to a wider audience and promote its use in the public sector.

Social Media Criticized in FTX Bankruptcy Case

• James Bromley, an attorney defending debtors in the FTX bankruptcy case, has criticized social media for spreading information from FTX’s former chief executive officer, Sam Bankman-Fried.
• Bromley stated that if the judge were to grant an extension based on these claims, the debtors would be subject to “further assaults on Twitter” and similar issues.
• Bromley accused SBF and Friedberg of using social media to hurt creditors that submitted information to law enforcement.

James Bromley, an attorney representing the debtors in the FTX bankruptcy case, has expressed his concern with the impact of social media on the court proceedings. During a hearing on January 20th, 2023, Bromley spoke out against the use of Twitter, claiming that it had been used as a tool to spread information from FTX’s former chief executive officer, Sam Bankman-Fried. Furthermore, Bromley mentioned that the debtors had already been subject to “further assaults on Twitter”, and that if the judge were to grant an extension based on the claims of Bankman-Fried, the debtors would be further subjected to such online attacks.

Bromley also accused Bankman-Fried and his associates of using social media channels to hurt creditors that had submitted information to law enforcement. He argued that it was extremely difficult to cross-examine a tweet, especially one that was being published by someone who was the subject of a criminal prosecution.

The issue of social media’s influence on court proceedings has been a contentious one, with many arguing that the use of such platforms can be used to spread misinformation and distort the truth. Bromley’s comments on the matter show that this is an issue that needs to be taken seriously, as it can have a detrimental effect on the outcome of a case. It remains to be seen how the court will handle this situation, but it is clear that the use of social media must be carefully monitored in order to ensure that justice is served.

Women Take Control: 34% Now Own Cryptocurrency, Up from 29%

• A new report by eToro reveals that 34% of women now own cryptocurrency, up from 29% in the previous quarter.
• The report found that among cryptocurrency investors, the most popular reason for doing so is the opportunity to make high returns.
• A survey released by BlockFi in October 2022 found that women were still bullish on crypto, with 22% of respondents still open to buy bitcoin and altcoins in 2023.

Cryptocurrency adoption among female retail investors is on the rise according to a recent report released by eToro, a popular social trading platform. The Retail Investor Beat Q4 2022 report surveyed 10,000 retail investors across 13 countries and 3 continents and revealed that 34% of women now own cryptocurrency, up from 29% in the previous quarter. This makes digital assets the most widely owned asset class among women after cash.

The survey provides insight into the mindset of retail investors, revealing that the most popular reason for investing in cryptocurrencies is the opportunity to make high returns. Many also believe in the power of blockchain technology and think that cryptocurrencies are a transformative asset class. This rise in cryptocurrency adoption is significant, as it suggests that crypto is succeeding where traditional financial markets have sometimes failed to bring more women to the table.

The survey by eToro is not the only one that supports the growing adoption of digital assets among the female population. A survey released by BlockFi, a popular crypto lender, in October 2022 found that women were still bullish on crypto despite the challenges plaguing the market at the time. The survey showed that women still see crypto as a good investment vehicle, with 22% of respondents stating that they were still open to buy bitcoin and altcoins in 2023, and one in 10 women having chosen crypto as their first investment.

As the industry continues to mature, more and more women are becoming interested in cryptocurrencies and the potential they offer. This is largely due to the fact that digital assets are becoming more accessible to the average person, with many services now offering easy-to-use platforms for buying and selling digital currencies. And with the increasing number of educational resources available, more women are feeling confident about investing in cryptocurrency.

This increased adoption of cryptocurrency among female investors is not only good for the industry, but also for women. The report by eToro shows that women are making more informed decisions when it comes to investments, which can lead to better financial outcomes. Furthermore, it is also helping to break down traditional gender norms, as women are becoming more confident in investing in traditionally male-dominated asset classes.

Overall, the trend of increasing cryptocurrency adoption among women is a positive sign for the industry and suggests that more women are now feeling empowered to take control of their financial futures. As the cryptocurrency space continues to mature, it is likely that we will see more women taking part in the industry and taking full advantage of the opportunities that digital assets have to offer.

Três razões pelas quais os touros Bitcoin [BTC] ainda não estão cansados

Os touros Bitcoin [BTC] experimentaram um aumento eufórico em seu preço, a primeira vez após a bomba que reduziu pela metade. Ele também quebrou acima da resistência significativa da faixa de US$ 10.000 a US$ 10.500 e continuou sua ascensão a uma alta acima de US$ 11.400.

Fraqueza no dólar

O aumento do Bitcoin [BTC] após o aumento das sebes inflacionárias como Bitcoin Code e Gold está surgindo como um forte sinal positivo. Charles Edwards, analista de cadeia e fundador da Capriole Investments, tweeted,

Esta enorme mudança de $2000 em #Bitcoinis é tanto mais doce quanto foi feita com Ouro, não com ações. Em um ano tumultuado, Bitcoin está se provando um porto seguro. Esmagando todas as outras classes de ativos e até mais de 50%.

É preciso ser paciente. Apenas. Obter. Começar.

O Federal Reserve dos EUA e quase todos os bancos centrais em todo o mundo estão caminhando para a desvalorização de sua moeda, implicando a aprovação de enormes notas de QE aprovadas pelos governos. O dólar em queda está causando uma fuga para outros ativos, concentrando-se no baixo risco. Bitcoin [BTC] parece estar se destacando devido à sua concepção e aceitação pelos administradores de fundos de hedge e outros investidores institucionais.

Pontos de Base Mensais Futuros

O mercado de touros é impulsionado pela discrepância entre a demanda e a oferta. No entanto, uma extensão de tais tendências leva a uma euforia maciça. Isto é representado pela sobre-alavancagem de negócios longos nos mercados de derivados. Quando os incentivos para os comerciantes de alto volume se tornam muito mais atraentes para vender a um preço mais alto do que se entregar aos longos riscos, o preço despenca.

Enquanto a taxa de financiamento periódico está subindo a proporções maciças que favorecem os ursos, o ponto de partida em futuros mensais ainda tem espaço para crescer. Alex Kruger, um economista e trader tweetado,

Os meses de junho de 2019 e fevereiro de 2020 aconteceram quando a base de 3 meses atingiu >23% no Bitmex & >24% no Deribit. Em 26 de junho e 13 de fevereiro. Isto só aconteceu uma outra vez, em 23 de junho/2019, também bem antes de uma correção importante.

Atualmente, a base de 3 meses da Bitmex está em 12%. Além disso, em comparação com o tempo anterior em 2019, a ação massiva foi impulsionada principalmente pela demanda, uma vez que apenas US$133 milhões de pedidos curtos foram liquidados na BitMEX, afastando as expectativas de um aperto curto.

Descoberta de preços

Além disso, na frente técnica, o preço fechou acima da resistência da linha de tendência de longo prazo em uma escala semanal. Após o fechamento, os touros registram um aumento de 10,7% nos próximos dois dias, reforçando a quebra.

Este movimento significativo abriu figurativamente uma nova fase de descoberta de preços para o Bitcoin que poderia levar a novos alvos maciços.

Razzia von zu Hause in einem neuen Niantic-Blogbeitrag gehänselt

Trainerinnen und Trainer, Achtung, das ist eine große Sache! Niantic hat gerade ein massives Update zum Thema Sicherheit während der COVID-19-Gesundheitskrise veröffentlicht. Neben all den bevorstehenden Änderungen für das Spielen von Heimspielen hat Niantic auch darüber gesprochen, dass Sie bald in der Lage sein werden, Razzien von zu Hause aus durchzuführen!

Hier ist der Auszug aus dem Blog-Post:

Obwohl es unmöglich ist, vorherzusagen, wann und wie sich die Situation mit COVID-19 weltweit entwickeln wird, werden wir die folgenden Änderungen an unseren Spielen und Live-Veranstaltungen vornehmen:

Übung: Mit Adventure Sync können Sie Ihre Schritte in der Halle verfolgen, so dass Aktivitäten wie das Putzen Ihres Hauses und das Laufen auf dem Laufband zu den Spielergebnissen zählen. Wir werden Verbesserungen an Adventure Sync vornehmen, damit es noch besser mit Bewegungen und Aktivitäten in der Halle funktioniert.

Geselligkeit: Wir verbessern unsere virtuellen sozialen Funktionen im Spiel, damit die Spieler auch dann in Kontakt bleiben können, wenn sie sich im realen Leben nicht treffen können. Bald können Sie sich mit Freunden zusammentun und gemeinsam in Pokémon GO von zu Hause aus Schlachtzugsschlachten bestreiten.
Entdecken: Wir überlegen auch, wie wir den Spielern helfen können, ihre Lieblingsorte in der realen Welt virtuell zu besuchen und Erinnerungen auszutauschen, bis sie sie wieder persönlich besuchen können.
Live-Events: Wir stellen uns neu vor, was es bedeutet, diesen Sommer an einem Live-Event von Niantic teilzunehmen, und setzen unsere kreative Energie ein, um die Spannung direkt zu Ihnen nach Hause zu bringen. Das bedeutet, dass wir an einer völlig neuen Art und Weise arbeiten, das Pokémon GO-Fest zu genießen. Weitere Einzelheiten folgen bald!
Aufbrechen und spekulieren

Dies sind unsere Gedanken und Spekulationen in dieser Angelegenheit!

Die Verbesserungen von Adventure Sync werden wahrscheinlich nur technische und mechanische Verbesserungen für das Tracking in Innenräumen sein, die sich mehr darauf konzentrieren, an kleinen Orten aktiv zu bleiben. Wir sind uns nicht sicher, welches Problem Niantic hier zu lösen versucht, aber wir freuen uns auf jegliche Änderungen an Adventure Sync.

Die Razzia von zu Hause aus ist hier das große Problem. Wenn wir raten müssten, würden wir sagen, dass Niantic ein ähnliches System verwenden kann, wie Sie den Status Ihres Turnhallen-Verteidigers überprüfen, aber wahrscheinlich nur für die Turnhallen, die Sie besucht haben und für die Sie einen Ausweis haben. Dies ist eine reine Vermutung von unserer Seite, aber es macht Sinn, die Liste der Fitnessstudio-Abzeichen etwas mehr zu nutzen. Entweder das oder etwas, das mit dem nahegelegenen Raids-Tracker zu tun hat. Für welche Lösung sie sich auch immer entscheiden, wir vermuten, dass sie einige Zeit brauchen werden, um sie umzusetzen – ich schätze, mindestens einen Monat.

Eine neue Art, das Pokémon GO-Fest zu genießen? Nun, es wird mit Sicherheit virtuell sein, das Format ist wahrscheinlich das einzige, was noch herausgefunden werden muss. In den letzten Jahren haben wir das Format “von innen nach außen” genossen, bei dem globale Trainer an globalen Herausforderungen teilnehmen und die Teilnehmer ihre eigenen Herausforderungen haben. Wir werden sehen, wie sich das entwickelt, aber der Kauf einer Eintrittskarte wird wahrscheinlich zusätzliche Boni für die Karteninhaber freischalten.

Veränderungen bei der Erforschung? Wir haben keine Ahnung, was das bedeuten könnte, aber es ist kein persönlicher PokéStops, wie es aussieht.
