Результатом сотрудничества японской консалтинговой компании Nomura Research Institute (NRI) и компании Intelligence Unit стал запуск торгуемого криптовалютного индекса.   Новая платформа берет данные с сервисов MV Index Solutions (MVIS) и CryptoCompare. Здесь могут обслуживаться не только японские финансовые учреждения, но и мировые компании. Основой индекса являются пять криптовалют: BTC, BCH, ETH, LTC и XRP, ребалансировка которых проводится один раз в 30 дней.  «Высокий спрос со стороны институциональных инвесторов способствует развитию фондов на базе криптоактивов. Хорошо диверсифицированные продукты вроде индексных фондов привлекательны как альтернативные инвестиции», — отметил глава Intelligence Unit Акихиро Ниими.

Соответствующий нормативно-правовой акт уже утвержден в местном муниципалитете, но для того, чтобы заплатить налоги криптовалютой, жителям нужно будет подать заявку в местный налоговый орган. Полученные монеты будут конвертироваться в национальную валюту и переводиться на государственный счет.  Напомним, ранее мы писали, что на Бермудах теперь можно платить налоги криптовалютой.

Скандально известный предприниматель Джон Макафи сделал еще одно громкое заявление, он сказал, что будущее криптовалютной индустрии – это альткоины, а биткоин, по его словам, является «настоящим шиткоином». Подобное заявление он сделал на своей странице в социальной сети Twitter.  «Кто бы из биткоин-максималистов не придумал термин «шиткоин» — это великолепно. Но все мы знаем, что будущее криптовалют определят альткоины. Биткоин — старый, неуклюжий, небезопасный, без смарт-контрактов и децентрализованных приложений. Это настоящий шиткоин», — написал Макафи. Примечательно, что в прошлом Макафи был ярым приверженцем биткоина, он пророчил этой монете большое будущее: в середине 2017-го года, во время бычьего ралли, он утверждал, что к декабрю 2020 года, 1 BTC будет стоить 1 миллион долларов США. Если его прогноз не сбудется, он обещал публично съесть свой детородный орган. Но в начале 2020 года, он назвал это хорошей пиар-акцией для привлечения новых пользователей, а не реальным обещанием.   Напомним, ранее мы писали, что Джон Макафи идет в президенты США.

Рик Эдельман, глава Edelman Financial Engines посоветовал всем управляющим денежными активами инвестировать в биткоин 1-2% от общего портфеля. Но по мнению финансового эксперта, обязательным условием является интеграция в технологию блокчейн. Также он уточнил, что речь идет о долгосрочных инвестициях, так как криптовалютный рынок слишком волатилен для краткосрочных вложений.  Эдельман убежден в массовом принятии BTC, что приведет к неизбежному росту его курса. Также он считает, что в будущем, технология блокчейн вытеснит с рынка различных посредников, в виде брокеров и страховщиков. Напомним, ранее мы писали, что эксперт финансового холдинга указал на причину будущего падения биткоина.

XRP breaks decisively through resistance After reaching an all-time high of $3.30 on Jan. 04, 2018, XRP entered a massive downtrend.

In general, 2020 has been a pretty good year for cryptocurrency. Mike Novogratz has given his opinion on the bitcoin price and that it would continue to rise higher over the course of this year. In general, 2020 has been a pretty good year for cryptocurrency. Especially for bitcoin which finally broke the $9000 mark last week and has seen many enthusiasts, investors and traders excited for what the future might hold. Given the past two years being somewhat lacklustre (and that’s one way of putting it), it’s exciting to see what the rest of the year - if not the rest of the first quarter of 2020 - will hold. In regards to its price, the coin has experienced some big surges over the past couple of weeks. With that in mind, the former partner at Goldman Sachs and the current head of the cryptocurrency fund Galaxy Digital, Mike Novogratz has given his opinion on the bitcoin price and that it would continue to rise higher over the course of this year. To start off with, he highlighted that a large amount of liquidity in the economy of the United States and the debasement of the US dollar has been creating an environment that would make people see the need for a cryptocurrency such as bitcoin. He went on to add that with the recent skyrockets in price during the United States/Iran tensions (as well as the outbreak of the coronavirus), he had a lot of confidence in investment in bitcoin. Furthermore, he had he added that the leading cryptocurrency had proved that it could be considered a reliable alternative compared to fiat money such as the dollar. The digital gold comparison has been thrown about a lot in bitcoins face the past few years. Speaking on this, Novogratz said: “It is a weapon in people’s portfolio… Bitcoin is a version of gold. We call it digital gold and we’re putting in plumbing all around the system to allow more and more people to buy it so it trades much, much better.” Whereas Novogratz doesn’t exactly predict a solid price for the leading cryptocurrency in the interview, he has previously indicated that he sees the bitcoin price strongly skyrocketing by the end of this year and into the early weeks of 2021. Given his bullish manner, Novogratz has even predicted all-time highs for the flagship cryptocurrency. It will be interesting to see how this situation plays out.

The tweet showed that whenever a user on Twitter uses the hashtag ‘bitcoin’ an image showing its symbol will appear next to it.

This includes novelty things such as the release of a new franchise film like Star Wars, or even an important cultural movement such as the MeToo movement. #bitcoin cc:@unicode — jack 🌍🌏🌎 (@jack) February 2, 2020 The CEO suggested that the symbol should be included in the Unicode text which was very much appreciated by crypto Twitter.

XRP has been one of the worst-performing major altcoins in 2019. In fact, ever since the crypto winter settled, most cryptos, including Bitcoin have managed to regain some of their value over time. In fact, BTC almost managed to reach the $14,000 mark and was well on its way to its past all-time-high of $20,000 but XRP was well behind everybody in terms of growth. The highest this coin managed to reach was $0.479 during the 2019 Summer craze. But not even that made this coin the go-to choice for most investors. The majority of the market is currently being dominated by Bitcoin, which is quite easy to understand. However, several news pieces and XRP analyses from InvestingHaven are starting to show some serious advancement for Ripple in February 2020. In fact, the coin has already started moving at a rapid pace and is considered to reach a significant margin within the next couple of weeks. What do the charts say? According to the charts XRP has already overcome its most important resistance level of $0.247 and is well on its way to breaking the next one at $0.266. The only real issue that the coin is currently facing is the growing bearish sentiment from investors that had personally experienced XRP’s downfall back in 2018. Should the bulls fail to maintain the resistance level the coin is currently struggling with, it’s almost guaranteed that the $0.247 support level is going to falter. Should this happen, XRP will be well on its way to its 2-year low of $0.183 that it had in December. China behind the surge? May are saying that the crisis in China has forced people to rely on alternative means of exchange, thus flooding the crypto markets. However, it’s important to note that most of Ripple’s customers (XRP holders) are from the Western hemisphere (US, UK, South America). This puts a large question mark over the Chinese argument and rightfully so. If anything, the Chinese virus crisis pumped Bitcoin, which coincidentally started dragging the whole market with it. XRP will have to face a serious bearish hit once the dust settles on the Eastern crises.
With the start of February, we’ve seen the co-founder of the Ethereum network, Vitalik Buterin called bitcoin cash “not bitcoin”. He compared BTC and BCH together in that they are not the same, in fact, they are different in many ways. With the start of February, we’ve seen the co-founder of the Ethereum network, Vitalik Buterin call bitcoin cash, “not bitcoin”. He compared BTC and BCH together in that they are not the same, in fact, they are different in many ways. Taking to Twitter on the 1st of February, the face of Ethereum said “Bitcoin Cash is not Bitcoin,” whilst in response to a tweet from Brad Mills accusing the co-founder of promoting the BCH protocol. Bitcoin cash is not bitcoin. — vitalik.eth (@VitalikButerin) February 1, 2020 Just because the co-founder said this, doesn’t mean he is fully against the BCH project. He has voiced his opinion on the project before - not all of which are negative. In this case, he has clearly made his thoughts known that the two digital assets are not the same. He even made this comparison in 2017 several months after the hard fork on BTC which resulted in BCH. He actually made a positive comment on the newfound protocol (at the time) as he went on to say: “I consider BCH a legitimate contender for the Bitcoin name... I consider bitcoin's *failure* to raise block sizes to keep fees reasonable to be a large (non-consensual) change to the ‘original plan’, morally tantamount to a hard fork.” You might actually interpret this tweet differently. Some might say that this is actually in support of BCH. The additional tweet by the co-founder on the same day clearly shows distinction though. In a follow-up to the tweet, he said the following: “That said, *right now*, I think trying to claim ‘BCH = bitcoin’ is a bad idea, as it *is* a minority opinion in the ‘greater bitcoin community.’” It will be interesting to see how this plays out.
