Bitcoin inventor Satoshi Nakamoto exposed through spelling weakness?

The guesswork around Satoshi Nakamoto goes into the next round in 2021. An analysis of the writing habits of the Bitcoin inventor provides new impetus.

More than 12 years after the Bitcoin whitepaper was published, the identity of its author remains a mystery

Now the Ungeared.com team also got involved in the speculations surrounding Satoshi Nakamoto. Because on December 31, a statistical study appeared there, which is related to Satoshi’s spelling.

The article responds to a line of reasoning that claims that Great Britain is the home of the Bitcoin inventor. Since some of the arguments put forward for this were based on Satoshi’s spelling, the authors decided to subject them to statistical examination. They made use of the fact that a number of words in American English are spelled differently than in British. In addition to the Bitcoin whitepaper, Satoshi’s well-known emails and blog posts were also the subject of the analysis.

The authors of the study were able to identify a total of 108 cases that are relevant to their concerns. With regard to the spelling, the following breakdown results: „American – 52, British – 35 and misspelled – 21.“ Satoshi thus uses both the American and the British spelling.

Moreover, there is no recognizable pattern according to which Satoshi switches between the two writing styles. The same word is sometimes found in British and then again in American spelling. Even within the same email, the Bitcoin inventor varies his spelling habit. Only when it comes to coding does he remain largely faithful to the American.

Where did the Bitcoin inventor come from?

The just mentioned inconsistencies seem to require explanation. For example, as one hypothesis, the authors suggest that the Bitcoin inventor is Canadian. Because the Canadian English mixes the spelling of the British and the American on some points. Since Satoshi mainly uses American coding for coding, it is also conceivable that he is actually British, but programmed in American English.

However, that doesn’t explain Satoshi’s misspelling either. It would be conceivable here that English is simply not the mother tongue of the Bitcoin inventor. (The authors do not consider this possibility.) The seemingly arbitrary switch between different spelling styles could also be explained in this way.

In the end, the results of the study leave more questions unanswered than answered. Could Satoshi Nakomoto be more of a collective than a loner, as is often assumed? It is also possible that the inconsistent spelling was a deliberately chosen strategy by the Bitcoin inventor to make the traces unrecognizable as much as possible. If so, even years after the white paper was published, Nakamoto is cheating on all Bitcoin archaeologists.

Bitcoin (BTC) exceeds € 20,000 for the first time on Christmas Day

On this Christmas day, December 25, 2020, Bitcoin (BTC) is giving us a gift: it has for the first time exceeded € 20,000. Unheard of since the launch of this cryptocurrency in 2009.

Bitcoin (BTC) exceeds 24,500 dollars, or more than 20,000 euros

Nothing can stop Bitcoin (BTC), the king of cryptocurrencies saw its price exceed € 20,000 several times on December 25, 2020. Since crossing its old ATH ( All Time High ), its highest price, Crypto Engine is not weakening. It is even the reverse!

While several analysts saw Bitcoin’s price correct to around $ 18,000, this still has not happened. Besides, it is possible that this correction will never happen, the future will tell, because the price of BTC is extremely volatile.

More and more companies are adopting Bitcoin

New companies to convert part of their cash into bitcoin keep increasing. The Mogo company plans to allocate 1.5% of its assets in bitcoins , the manager SkyBridge is launching a Bitcoin fund , MicroStrategy announces that it has bought back for $ 650 million in Bitcoin …

According to the Bitcoin Treasuries site , around thirty companies have invested part of their funds in Bitcoin. And these are only the companies that have communicated publicly on this subject.

The number of purchases by institutions (companies, specialized funds, etc.) seems to be increasing. According to an analysis by Ki Young Ju for CryptoQuant , the number of OTC (Over The Counter) deals, which are exchanges carried out outside the traditional circuits, seem to be increasing via Coinbaise.

12,006 BTC came out of Coinbase a few hours ago. Like I said, they went into wallets that appear to be custody. It seems that Coinbase generates a new cold wallet for each customer after an OTC deal with an institutional.

Other analyzes confirm a significant withdrawal of bitcoins on Coinbase and other exchanges. Indeed, according to the Whale Exchange Ratio on Gemini calculated by CryptoQuant, the number of whales (large owners of bitcoins stored on the Gemini exchange ) seems to be decreasing which is rather a good sign. These big fish withdraw their BTC to keep them for the long term.

Interest in Bitcoin grows in Brazil amid high prices and the crisis caused by Covid-19, says survey

Research shows that coronavirus has driven interest in Bitcoin in Basil and Latin America

As the coronavirus pandemic shows no signs of slowing down in Latin America, a new report concluded that the crisis could represent a major boost for investment in cryptomites in the region.

The report, commissioned by Sherlock Communications, highlights key aspects of the blockchain ecosystem in 21 Latin American countries, including an exclusive Toluna survey of more than 2,200 people in Argentina, Brazil, Colombia and Mexico to understand their attitudes towards Bitcoin Supreme and cryptomorphs.

When asked if they would be interested in investing in cryptomoedas as a result of the economic crisis caused by COVID-19, between 31% and 39% of respondents in the four countries surveyed responded that they would be „much more interested.

Between 35% and 51% of respondents said they would be „a little more interested. The most commonly cited reason for investment was „to protect my assets from inflation and economic stability.

Uncertainty and lack of confidence seem to be the main obstacles to investment in cryptomites in the region. Most respondents in the countries where the survey was conducted said they do not currently use cryptomeda because they „do not know enough about it.

When asked what would give them confidence to invest in cryptomoeda, the most common responses were „to have more reliable platforms to trade“ and „to read and understand more about it.

Bitcoin

Latin Americans are hopeful about the future of cryptomorphs in the region, but they say there is still much to be done compared to other regions of the world.

When asked how they see the state of cryptomorphs in their respective countries, most responded that „we are far behind compared to other countries“ (particularly in Argentina, with 50% of respondents choosing this response).

The second most common response was „we are moving forward“ (mainly in Brazil and Colombia, with 28%). Most respondents (43% – 51%) agree that cryptomycins will eventually make it easier to exchange money internationally, with some (32% – 46%) suggesting that the technology will replace local currencies in the future.

„These results are encouraging for cryptomoks and blockchain-based applications seeking to launch in Latin America, and for Latin Americans who are feeling the effects of the current economic crisis. Lack of trust in governments, economic instability, inflation, desire for transparency. Millions of people without a bank or economically needy. Name the problem that the blockchain is trying to solve: we have it here. These are real problems for Latin Americans. That is why we are so open to new possibilities. But education is the key to promoting adoption,“ said Luiz Hadad, Community Building Leader at Cambiatus and one of the leading blockchain consultants in Latin America.

Other important points of the study

„With the right kind of communication campaign, educating, informing and responding to the complexities and risks to those involved, the sky is the limit for blockchain projects and investment in cryptomorphs in the region,“ adds Patrick O’Neill, managing partner of Sherlock Communications.

Respondents in Colombia showed the greatest interest in investing in cryptomoeda (51% „a little more interested“ and 31% „much more interested“), while respondents in Argentina showed the lowest level of interest (35% „a little more interested“ and 36% „much more interested“) among the four countries surveyed.

More Argentines stated that they would not invest in cryptomeda than respondents from any other country (12%). In contrast, the number in Colombia was 7%.

Bitcoin proved to be by far the best known cryptomeda in the region, with 86% – 92% recognition. Ethereum was the second most cited name, with recognition of only 26% – 29% depending on the country.

Christine Lagarde speaks about the introduction of the digital euro and cryptocurrencies

In November, the President of the European Central Bank Christine Lagarde spoke of a possible introduction of the digital euro in January 2021. She recently spoke again about the digital currency. In her statements she also addressed the risks of cryptocurrencies.

In an article in the newspaper L’ENA hors les murson November 30th, Lagarde once again described the digital euro as a “complement” to physical cash. The main aim of the introduction is that the euro meets the needs of European citizens.

It could be important in a number of future scenarios, from a decline in the use of cash to preventing the introduction of foreign digital currencies in the euro area

Lagarde said that the issue of a digital euro could become a necessity in terms of currency security. At the same time, the introduction of the digital currency would have a certain symbolic character. She sees the chance that Europe’s digital economy could be united in this way. However, Lagarde is rather skeptical of cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin. She made it clear that in addition to opportunities, cryptocurrencies also entail major risks:

The main risk is to rely solely on technology and the flawed concept that there is no identifiable issuer or claim. It also means that users cannot rely on crypto assets to maintain a stable value

Currency sovereignty at risk due to cryptocurrencies?

Lagarde believes that cryptocurrencies are driving additional innovations in payments. They would also integrate well with social media and similar platforms. Nevertheless, she sees risks with regard to currency sovereignty:

For example, if the issuer cannot guarantee a fixed value or if they are perceived as incapable of absorbing losses, a run could result. In addition, the use of stable coins as a store of value could trigger a large shift from bank deposits to stable coins, which could affect bank operations and the transmission of monetary policy.

Bitcoin-prijspiek in december 2021 als ‚main bull run‘ begint – Willy Woo

Een herstel van de relatieve sterkte-index van Bitcoin echoot begin 2017, voorafgaand aan maanden van opwaartse prijsactie tot recordhoogtes van $ 20.000.

Bitcoin ( BTC ) staat aan het begin van zijn volgende „main bull run“ en de prijspiek zal pas eind 2021 raken, gelooft de bekende analist Willy Woo.

In een van de vele recente Twitter-discussies op 11 november produceerde de maker van statistische bron Woobull nieuw bewijs dat de prijsstijgingen van Bitcoin nog maar net begonnen zijn.

Woo: Bitcoin RSI „gewoon aan het opwarmen“

Door een grafiek te uploaden met de relatieve sterkte-index (RSI) van Bitcoin, merkte Woo overeenkomsten op tussen het huidige gedrag van de metriek en dat van begin 2017.

“Groene cirkel geeft aan waar we ons bevinden in deze macrocyclus. Start van de belangrijkste bull-run (voor het geval het niet al duidelijk is), ”merkte hij op.

“BTC’s on-chain Relative Strength Index is net aan het opwarmen. Rode verticals zijn de halveringen en zorgen voor de bullish supply shock-impuls. “

RSI kijkt naar het prijsgedrag over een bepaalde periode. De berekening omvat de verhouding tussen de gemiddelde sluitingen hoger en lager over die periode.

Woo gebruikte zijn eigen 365-dagen RSI-kaart en de metingen volgen op zijn positie tijdens een vorige update in juli. Destijds beëindigde Bitcoin een periode van zogenaamde RSI-compressie, die gepaard ging met een reeks hogere dieptepunten en lagere hoogtepunten voor de BTC-prijs.

In juli voorspelde Woo dat de bull-run in het vierde kwartaal van 2020 zou beginnen en in 2021 zou lopen – iets dat tot dusverre werkelijkheid is geworden. Nu suggereert hij dat de nieuwe bullish fase pas over ongeveer een jaar de top bereikt.

„Mijn keuze is december 2021, ik moet verkopen om belasting te betalen zoals de vorige keer“, antwoordde hij toen hem werd gevraagd naar een waarschijnlijke piek.

2021 wordt het jaar van de prijsrecords van BTC

Zoals Cointelegraph meldde , is Woo verre van de enige die beweert dat de prestaties van Bitcoin in de afgelopen weken een anomalie zijn, die later naar beneden zal corrigeren.

Real Vision CEO Raoul Pal en Gemini Exchange mede-oprichter Tyler Winklevoss hebben beide verklaard dat een nieuw record voor BTC / USD niet later dan Q1 volgend jaar zal komen.

A new Bretton Woods to save the dollar against Covid? Bitcoin rubs its hands

Who will save the global economy?

The global economy has still not recovered from the 2008 crisis. It has been faltering ever since, and it is only now standing upright with a great deal of „monetary easing“ (i.e., money supply). The new crisis due to the coronavirus is in danger of driving the nail in, and the question of a major Bretton Woods style monetary reset arises.

A pivotal moment for the world economy

The Bretton Woods Agreement was concluded in July 1944, when the world and its economy had just followed the First and Second World Wars in a few decades, with the Great Depression of the 1930s in between.

The old gold standard was then backed by the U.S. dollar, which then began to become the world’s reference currency. The fixed parity was 35 dollars for an ounce of gold (31.1 g). These agreements also saw the creation of the International Monetary Fund (IMF).

IMF-report

It was IMF Managing Director Kristalina Georgieva who called on world leaders to come together around a table to discuss a major new economic agreement:

„How can we seize this Bretton Woods-like situation to move forward to a better world after the pandemic? (…) we are faced with two major tasks: fighting the crisis today and building a better future. »

A real question, but a bad solution in perspective?

Unfortunately, the IMF Managing Director does not even envisage the end of fiduciary currencies based solely on trust in their issuing states. No return to a healthy currency therefore, as in the old gold standard, where the precious metal was not printable at will, just like Bitcoin (BTC) today, with its fixed quantity of units – 21 million and not one more.

For Kristalina Georgieva, it’s all about more and more economic stimulus and investments in various areas. One just wonders where all this magic money comes from.

Of course, if high inflation is eventually triggered because of all these monetary impressions, it will have a significant impact on assets perceived as safe havens.

No matter what decisions or agreements are made, it seems less and less likely that the world economy, which is completely broken, will be able to keep going for a very long time like this. The IMF’s solution to the headlong rush is merely a time saver in the face of an economic paradigm shift that has become inevitable.

Bitcoin (BTC) Update: course towards $12,000 in green weekend

The Bitcoin (BTC) price at the time of writing is around $11,400. We look at the charts and discuss the possible scenarios, read the update here!

Bitcoin Update
By the end of the week it looks as if the course will be in the current consolidation zone. With a test at both the top and bottom of the range over the last few days, we will most likely have a quiet weekend in the market.

So far the price seems to be between $11,250 and $11,550. The place where the price managed to keep quiet during the summer. Because both support and resistance is strong here. We can see a long quiet price again before there is an outbreak.

A potential outbreak can cause a big reaction again. Where we fell down last time out of consolidation, there is always the possibility of a sharp rise. But a prediction out of consolidation is difficult, and the course will move unpredictably.

Bitcoin day chart
In times of consolidation, viewing charts can sometimes be quite boring. Little happens and predicting an outbreak is less reliable. Nevertheless, it is good to keep an eye on the market and predict possible outbreaks by means of support and resistance lines, among other things.

If we look at Bitcoin’s daily chart, we can see that the price has risen nicely in recent days. We see that the large fall at the beginning of September has largely been reversed. This is a good sign, but the price is at an important point. The spot where the price broke down last time.

Despite the fact that we are still in a short period of consolidation at the moment, a lot can happen around this level. Should the price not hold up above $11,400 this weekend, we may see another dip.

Bitcoin day chart 18 October 2020

So closing a price above $11,400 can be seen as bullish. And so also a start towards the road to $12,000. Although we will not get to that for the time being, given the current movements.

In case of a possible fall down, we see more than enough support on the road to $11,000. Including a large zone around $11,300. With little volume the price will therefore not fall down quickly. If the price is going to make a test here, the chance of a bounce back up is high.

If we look at the other side, we see that there is currently a lot of resistance between $11,600 and $11,800. Also here we will not find an outbreak with little volume that quickly. A serious movement will have to be initiated with a lot of volume.

All in all, we can conclude that the price is consolidating into a known range. With a bullish signal when the price will close above $11,400 this weekend. Whether we will then see more action in the coming week is difficult to say. But consolidation can also have bullish consequences.

Los toros de Bitcoin mantienen su liderazgo a pesar de la reciente presión de ventas

Bitcoin parece sorprendentemente alcista, pero ¿cuán cerca de la realidad está el nivel de precios de 300 mil dólares?

Bitcoin se está negociando actualmente a 10.693 dólares después de caer por debajo de 10.900 dólares el 1 de octubre debido a varias noticias negativas. Desde el hackeo de KuCoin hace una semana hasta que Trump se infectó con el Coronavirus, la fuerza del titular de Bitcoin ha sido probada a fondo.

Sorprendentemente, el precio de Bitcoin no ha bajado mucho desde principios de octubre. En el gráfico diario, después de caer dos veces por debajo de los 100-MA, BTC logró recuperarse y ahora está operando justo por encima del nivel de soporte.

Se ha formado un triángulo con el límite superior alrededor de 10.700 dólares y la línea de tendencia inferior a 10.300 dólares. Una ruptura de cualquiera de estos dos niveles probablemente irá acompañada de un gran volumen de comercio.

Si los toros pueden defender con éxito el 100-MA y ver una ruptura por encima de 10.700 dólares, Bitcoin podría volver a probar fácilmente 11.000 dólares a corto plazo y quizás incluso mirar 12.000 dólares como el siguiente precio objetivo, ya que no hay mucha resistencia al alza.

Otro hecho alcista interesante a favor de Bitcoin es el notable aumento de las ballenas.

Según el gráfico de distribución de los titulares de BTC por Santiment, el número de ballenas con 10.000-100.000 monedas ha aumentado de 104 el 13 de septiembre a 111. Esto significa que 7 ballenas más están sosteniendo al menos 70.000 Bitcoin combinados, 735.000.000 de dólares.

¿Se llenará el vacío de 9.600 dólares de CME?

En la perspectiva bajista, Bitcoin aún no ha llenado el tan esperado hueco de CME de 9.600 dólares. El nivel de soporte crítico de 10.000 dólares se defendió durante 7 días del 3 al 10 de septiembre. Los toros están actualmente cómodos a pesar de las noticias negativas, ya que el precio ha establecido varios puntos de apoyo fuertes en el camino hacia abajo.

Sin embargo, el aumento de la presión de venta puede ser un factor importante en el corto plazo. El presidente de los Estados Unidos Donald Trump fue infectado con el virus del Coron y no está claro qué pasará con el mercado de valores esta semana debido a las noticias. Sabemos que Bitcoin y el mercado criptográfico tienden a estar correlacionados con el mercado de valores cuando hay una alta volatilidad.

De cualquier manera, parece que Bitcoin se está manteniendo mucho mejor esta vez y las ballenas están claramente todavía interesadas en el activo digital.

Berättelse från marknader Trump COVID-test, BitMEX-avgifter ger oktoberchocker för Bitcoin

Amerikanska tillsynsmyndigheter och brottsbekämpande tjänstemän väckte anklagelser på torsdagen mot BitMEX, en Seychellerbaserad kryptovalutabörs som under de senaste åren har vuxit till en av branschens största aktörer.

Enligt US Commodity Futures Trading Commission anklagade åklagare BitMEX för att underlätta oregistrerad handel och andra överträdelser, inklusive „att bedriva betydande aspekter av sin verksamhet från USA och acceptera order och medel från amerikanska kunder“, som rapporterats av CoinDesk’s Nikhilesh De.

Nyheterna dominerade nyhetsrubrikerna för kryptovalutor och skickade handlare och analytiker för att bedöma skadorna och konsekvenserna. Cirka 23 000 bitcoin drogs uppenbarligen från BitMEX-adresser på en timme, twittrade kryptovalutamarknadsföretaget Glassnode tidigt på fredagen med hänvisning till blockchain-data.

BitMEX, ledd av VD Arthur Hayes, sa att den avser att försvara sig mot anklagelserna „kraftigt“ och tillade att handelsplattformen fungerade normalt och att alla medel var säkra.

Bitcoin-priserna tumlade efter tillkännagivandet, vilket illustreras av CoinDesk’s Daniel Cawrey i ett prislista per timme.

Kryptovalutahandlare är villkorade av att förvänta sig volatilitet när det finns stora nyheter som involverar ett av de största börserna, men trots det snabba fallet stabiliserades priserna snabbt, vilket rapporterats av CoinDesk’s Zack Voell.

BitMEX är en välkänd aktör i konstellationen av globala kryptovalutabörser, delvis för att det var en pionjär 2016 för en ny produkt som kallas „evig bitcoin-leveraged swap.“ Vid den tiden kunde få handlare på framväxande digitala tillgångsmarknader ha förväntat sig vilken stor inverkan den dunkla utrullningen skulle ha på branschen.

Men instrumentet, som gjorde det enkelt för kunderna att handla motsvarande $ 100 bitcoin för varje $ 1 ned, visade sig vara oerhört populärt och framgångsrikt bland riskhungriga handlare och valvade BitMEX i topprankarna i världens största kryptovalutabörser.

Ändå var de eviga bytena ökända för att förvärra prissvingningarna: Det är en välkänd trop bland bitcoinhandlare att varje gång marknaden lutar på ett eller annat sätt blir BitMEX-kundernas tunna kapitaliserade positioner likviderade i en serie snabba marginalanrop, vilket förvärrar prissvängningar som efterklang andra börser.

Sådana avsnitt är så ökända att kryptohandlare till och med har ett slangverb för fenomenet: att bli „rekt“ med webbplatser och till och med Twitter-konton som ägnas åt att spåra deras storlek och frekvens.

Om BitMEXs roll på marknaderna skulle minska, kan det innebära färre likvidationer som orsakar volatilitet.

„På lång sikt är det så mycket bättre för spotmarknaden“, sa Steve Ehrlich, VD för Voyager Digital, en onlineplattform för handel med kryptovalutor, till First Mover.

Branschledare var snabba med att påpeka att vissa handlare tydligen hade flyttat sina lojaliteter nyligen till rivaliserande börser som hade kopierat BitMEXs „100x“ bitcoin-derivatkontrakt.

„För två år sedan skulle detta ha varit katastrofalt, för BitMEX var en så stor andel av alla som spelade leveraged trading“, berättade David Weisberger, grundare och VD för CoinRoutes Inc., till CoinDesk’s Muyao Shen i en telefonintervju. „Nu finns det en hel del alternativ till BitMEX och flera av dem har alltid varit strängare när det gäller handel eller att inte tillåta amerikanska kunder att handla på dessa plattformar.“

CoinDesk William Foxley rapporterade att BitMEX-nyheterna efterklang i den snabbt växande blockchainbaserade sektorn „decentraliserad ekonomi“, eller DeFi, där programmerare utvecklar halvautomatiserade plattformar för utlåning och handel.

Systemen gjuts ofta som ”okensurerbara” eftersom de huvudsakligen finns inom strängar av programmering kodade ovanpå Ethereum blockchain-nätverket. Frågan är om de fortfarande kan vara föremål för lagarna i olika jurisdiktioner, eftersom de i slutändan är hantverket av „riktiga, levande människor“.

Centraliserade börser som BitMEX som „ogenomskinliga plattformar som lätt kan underlätta penningtvätt“, berättade Robert Leshner, grundare av DeFi-långivaren Compound, till Foxley. „Däremot är DeFi gjort rätt ett friskt luft – fullständig transparens, ansvarsskyldighet, manipuleringsmotstånd och självförtroende.“

Ahem.

Reglerna för kryptovalutaindustrin utvecklas fortfarande och linjemakarna är alltid några eller många steg efter. Men ibland slår de ner, och det är förmodligen inte en slump att de ofta siktar på de mest hotande uppgångarna, de som försöker ändra spelreglerna.

Bitcoin Watch

Bitcoin har kommit under press de senaste 24 timmarna, till synes på grund av BitMEX-kontroversen och risk-off-rörelser på traditionella marknader.

På torsdag tillkännagav US Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) och federala åklagare att de debiterar BitMEX för att de inte har genomfört förfaranden för penningtvätt och driver en oregistrerad handelsplattform.

Vidare tillkännagav president Trump tidigt på fredagen att han och hans fru hade testat positivt för koronavirus och gick in i självkarantän, rattade upp osäkerhet före valet och skickade globala aktier lägre.

Bitcoin har minskat från 10 900 dollar till 10 400 dollar under det senaste dygnet. Det dagliga diagrammet visar nu att kryptovalutan sitter fast i ett snävare prisklass.

En triangeluppdelning skulle signalera en fortsättning på försäljningen från augusti högt över 12 400 dollar och exponera det genomsnittliga stödet på 200 dagar på 9 400 dollar.

Alternativt kan ett breakout bjuda in starkare diagramdrivet köppress.

Deze 10 landen zijn toonaangevend in de adoptie van Bitcoin

Volgens Chainalysis ‚Global Crypto Adoption Index zijn de landen met de hoogste cryptocurrency-gebruikscijfers geen ontwikkelde economieën.

Als de acceptatie van cryptocurrency vooruitgang boekt bij het doorbreken van reguliere economieën, zijn het niet noodzakelijk de economische grootmachten van de wereld die voorop lopen

Volgens een nieuw rapport van blockchain-onderzoeksbureau Chainalysis , van de 10 landen waar het gebruik van cryptocurrency het hoogst is, zijn er slechts twee zelfs ontwikkelde economieën: China en de Verenigde Staten.

Het onderzoeksbureau ontwikkelde een nieuwe methodologie, de Global Crypto Adoption Index, om cryptocurrency-activiteit onder gewone burgers over de hele wereld te meten. „De bedoeling is om de landen te benadrukken waar de meeste inwoners het grootste deel van hun financiële activiteiten naar cryptocurrency hebben verplaatst“ , schreef Bitcoin Profit in een blogpost .

„Hoewel handel en speculatie belangrijk zijn voor de cryptocurrency-economie, wilden we dat onze index de nadruk zou leggen op de acceptatie van de basis door dagelijkse gebruikers“, zei hij.

De Global Crypto Adoption Index van het bedrijf houdt rekening met de bevolking van elk land en de omvang van de economie bij het beoordelen van vier statistieken: ontvangen cryptocurrency op de keten, overgedragen winkelwaarde in de keten, aantal cryptostortingen in de keten en handelsvolume op de beurs.

Van de 154 landen die het bedrijf analyseerde, ontdekte het dat Oekraïne, Rusland en Venezuela de wereld leiden op het gebied van crypto-acceptatie. De top 10 wordt afgerond met China, Kenia, de Verenigde Staten, Zuid-Afrika, Nigeria, Colombia en Vietnam.

Venezuela en Colombia leiden de acceptatie van cryptovaluta in Latijns-Amerika

In Latijns-Amerika zijn het bijvoorbeeld Venezuela en Colombia die momenteel voorop lopen in termen van Bitcoin-handelsvolume, volgens gegevens van Useful Tulips, evenals crypto-acceptatie zoals gedefinieerd door Chainalysis.

Vooral Venezuela trok de aandacht van Chainalysis, aangezien de huidige geopolitieke omstandigheden het een bijna perfecte ‚case study‘ voor het ecosysteem maken: ‚Venezuela is een uitstekend voorbeeld van wat de acceptatie van cryptocurrency in ontwikkelingslanden stimuleert en hoe burgers het gebruiken om economische instabiliteit te verminderen, ”Schreef het bedrijf.

„Onze gegevens laten zien dat Venezolanen meer cryptocurrency gebruiken wanneer de inheemse fiatvaluta van het land waarde verliest aan inflatie“, luidt het rapport, „wat suggereert dat Venezolanen zich tot cryptocurrency wenden om besparingen te behouden die ze anders misschien zouden verliezen.“

Colombia staat ondertussen op de negende plaats in de wereld wat betreft crypto-acceptatie, ondanks strikte voorschriften die de industrie in het land beheersen en fungeren als een knelpunt voor een bredere acceptatie.

Wetgevers in Colombia werken er echter actief aan om het land ‚Bitcoin-vriendelijker‘ te maken , in een poging de regelgeving te versoepelen die handel en andere activiteiten beperkt. Het stijgende aantal Bitcoin-geldautomaten en fintechs in Colombia kan ook een signaal zijn voor buitenlandse investeerders, ontwikkelaars en ondernemers dat de regio klaar is voor een crypto-boom.
