Les entreprises britanniques de cryptologie obtiennent un sursis, car l’Autorité fédérale de contrôle prolonge la période d’examen jusqu’à la mi-2002

Les régulateurs financiers britanniques autoriseront les entreprises de cryptographie dont les demandes d’enregistrement sont en cours à poursuivre leurs activités jusqu’au milieu de l’année 2021. L’agence prévoit d’utiliser cette prolongation pour rattraper le retard pris par les demandeurs, car ses activités ont été paralysées par la pandémie de coronavirus en cours.

La FCA annonce un régime d’enregistrement temporaire pour les sociétés de crypto

L’autorité britannique de surveillance des marchés financiers (FCA) a annoncé la nouvelle par le biais d’un communiqué de presse publié sur son site web mercredi (16 décembre 2020). Selon le Bitcoin Revolution communiqué de presse, la FCA a décidé d’établir un régime d’enregistrement temporaire pour les sociétés de cryptologie dans le pays.

Dans le cadre de ce nouveau régime, les sociétés de crypto dont les demandes d’enregistrement sont en cours seront autorisées à poursuivre leurs activités après le 10 janvier 2021. L’annonce du FCA explique sa décision :

“Le régime d’enregistrement temporaire est destiné aux entreprises de crypto existantes qui ont demandé leur enregistrement avant le 16 décembre 2020, et dont les demandes sont encore en cours d’évaluation. Ceci afin de permettre à ces entreprises existantes de continuer à commercer après le 9 janvier 2021 jusqu’au 9 juillet 2021, en attendant que la CAF se prononce sur leur demande”.

Toutefois, les entreprises qui n’ont pas respecté la date limite du mardi 15 décembre 2020 pour soumettre leur demande d’enregistrement doivent cesser leurs activités dans le pays à partir du 10 janvier 2021, tout en remboursant tous les dépôts des clients. Le non-respect de cette directive pourrait ouvrir à ces entreprises des poursuites pénales de la part de l’Agence fédérale de l’aviation civile.

Selon la CAF, la décision de prolonger la période d’examen des demandes d’autorisation des sociétés de cryptologie est due à la nature complexe du processus. L’autorité de régulation britannique a également invoqué les restrictions relatives aux coronavirus comme autre raison de son incapacité à évaluer toutes les demandes en cours.

Les entreprises non enregistrées devant cesser leurs activités au début de 2021, la FCA conseille aux négociants en devises cryptographiques du pays de s’assurer qu’ils ne font affaire qu’avec des entreprises inscrites dans son registre.

Réglementations sévères en matière de cryptocourant au Royaume-Uni

La FCA continue à appliquer des réglementations strictes pour les entreprises de cryptologie monétaire opérant au Royaume-Uni. En août dernier, l’organisme de réglementation britannique a inclus les bourses de cryptage et les fournisseurs de portefeuilles dans le cadre des lois sur la déclaration des crimes financiers. La nouvelle exigence serait appliquée à partir de janvier 2022. Au début de l’année 2020, la FCA a publié un nouveau manuel pour les entreprises de cryptologie en démarrage, qui prévoyait la réduction des frais d’enregistrement des entreprises en fonction de leurs revenus.

En outre, la FCA est sévère à l’égard des plateformes d’échange de crypto non réglementées qui opèrent dans le pays. L’organisme de surveillance réglementaire britannique a déjà mis en garde le public contre les entreprises inscrites sur une liste noire qui ne sont pas autorisées à opérer dans le pays.

Dans un autre effort pour protéger les investisseurs, le FCA a officiellement interdit en octobre la vente de produits dérivés cryptés aux investisseurs de détail. Selon l’organisme de surveillance financière, cette interdiction s’explique en partie par le manque de compréhension des consommateurs et la volatilité des produits cryptographiques. L’interdiction des produits dérivés cryptés de la FCA entrera en vigueur le 6 janvier 2021.

Ex-CFO da Cisco junta-se ao quadro da Coinbase

Ex-CFO da Cisco junta-se ao quadro da Coinbase à medida que cresce o reconhecimento

Kelly Kramer se junta a uma diretoria impressionante composta por executivos de vários setores.

A Digital Currency Exchange Coinbase deu as boas vindas a um novo membro a seu Conselho de Administração na quarta-feira, uma vez que continua a Bitcoin Era contar com a experiência de fora do setor de moedas criptográficas.

Kelly Kramer, ex CFO da Cisco, será o presidente do Comitê de Auditoria e Conformidade da Coinbase, revelou o CEO Brian Armstrong na quarta-feira. Ela substitui Chris Dodds, ex-membro da diretoria de Charles Schwab, que serviu na diretoria da Coinbase por mais de dois anos.

Kramer se junta à Coinbase após uma passagem de nove anos na Cisco, um dos maiores conglomerados de TI do mundo, onde ocupou vários cargos seniores, incluindo o de vice-presidente executivo e diretor financeiro.

Kramer foi “responsável pela gestão da estratégia financeira da empresa e pela supervisão de todas as funções financeiras, desenvolvimento corporativo, programa de aquisições, integrações e relações com investidores”, disse Armstrong.

Armstrong também anunciou que Marc Andreessen, co-fundador e sócio geral da Andreessen Horowitz, está fazendo a transição para uma função em tempo integral com a diretoria.

A diretoria da Coinbase é composta por indivíduos de vários setores, incluindo finanças, tecnologia e capital de risco. Os membros parecem ter sido recrutados propositadamente de fora dos domínios de moeda criptográfica e da cadeia de bloqueio empresarial, possivelmente como uma forma de trazer novos conhecimentos e contribuições para a troca de criptogramas emergentes.

A adição de Kramer, como as anteriores, reflete o crescente reconhecimento geral de que os ativos digitais estão aqui para fica

Fundada em 2012, a Coinbase é uma das maiores e mais estabelecidas bolsas de moedas digitais do mercado. É uma escolha popular para os recém-chegados porque lhes permite comprar ativos digitais como Bitcoin (BTC) e Ethereum (ETH) diretamente usando fiat money.

Ao mesmo tempo, a troca tem atraído críticas por não ser confiável durante períodos de volatilidade. A bolsa de valores se deparou novamente com problemas técnicos na quarta-feira, assim como o Bitcoin esmagou US$ 20.000 pela primeira vez.

Binance raises R$ 30 million in Bitcoin and donates R$ 537 thousand in masks to indigenous tribes of Brazil

Concerned with the spread of the new coronavirus, exchange offers more than 50 thousand N95 masks to the indigenous population.

Indigenous tribes in northern Brazil are benefiting from an important donation offered by Binance. Concerned with the dissemination of the new coronavirus, the platform has been able to raise more than R$ 30 million in donations with Bitcoin (BTC) worldwide to combat the pandemic.

Thus, part of this amount was used to benefit Brazilian indigenous tribes, in a total of R$ 537 thousand. With this amount, more than 50 thousand N95 masks will be delivered by Binance Charity, the foundation dedicated to social promotion that belongs to the exchange Binance.

Binance Charity and Integro Foundation raise US$ 1 million to help in the combat of the coronavirus

According to the platform that trades Bitcoin and other cryptomoedas, the delivery of the masks will take place in the coming days and should take into account the tribes most affected by COVID-19. This is not the first time Binance has donated masks to Brazil.
Masks donation to indigenous tribes

Sensitized with the fight against the coronavirus faced by the Indians in Brazil, Binance decided to offer more than 50 thousand N95 masks to Indian tribes located in northern states of Brazil.

As stated by the CEO and founder of Binance, Changpeng Zhao, the purchase of the masks was only possible after more than R$ 30 million in BTC was raised as donations for the fight against the new coronavirus.

“Binance Charity has this commitment and is strongly engaged in the fight against COVID-19. We are helping the communities that most need to overcome this difficult moment. There are already more than 300 BTCs raised and more than 20 countries benefited during the pandemic, which makes us very proud”.

Therefore, part of this amount is being directed to actions against the disease in Brazil, considered an epicenter of the disease with millions of registered cases.

Blockchain can help find a cure for COVID-19

The masks that will be distributed by Binance Charity were imported from the United States and arrived in Brazil still in October 2020. According to the platform, entities linked to indigenous health will be responsible for the distribution of 50,400 N95 masks.

“The masks, sent from Miami, arrived in Belém in the last week of October. The transportation and distribution are being coordinated by the Federation of Indigenous Peoples of Pará (FEPIPA), in partnership with the Indigenous Missionary Council (CIMI) and the Special Indigenous Health District (DSEI) Guamá-Tocantins”.

Binance fights against the coronavirus

Binance faces the coronavirus with actions aimed at preventing the disease worldwide. Only in Brazil, the exchange has already made two donations of masks to fight Covid-19.

Therefore, this is not the first time the company distributes masks against the new coronavirus in the country. Before attending indigenous tribes, in July the exchange offered 15 thousand masks to health workers.

In this case, the donations were directed to Santa Casa de São Paulo. In total, the masks offered by Binance in the first action exceeded R$ 26 thousand in donations.

Other initiatives with Bitcoin

Companies that operate in the cryptomime market seek to create a way to minimize the impact caused by the new coronavirus around the world. Like Binance, other platforms have created initiatives to confront the disease with donations in Bitcoin.

In Brazil and worldwide, the cryptomoedas community joins forces against the coronavirus

This is the case with the GiveTrack project, promoted by BitGive in partnership with Heifer International. As the Cointelegraph reported earlier, the platform will raise donations in Bitcoin to help develop smallholder agriculture in the United States.

In addition, the famous “Bitcoin Tuesday” is approaching, which should take place on December 1st, 2020. In this case, although the donations in cryptomoedas are not specifically destined to combat the new coronavirus, the action intends to distribute Bitcoin to charities.

O recorde de $7.4B de futuros de Bitcoin em aberto mostra que os profissionais ainda esperam $20K BTC

O preço do bitcoin ficou aquém de alcançar $20.000, mas o interesse recorde em futuros BTC mostra que os profissionais ainda estão em alta.

O preço do Bitcoin (BTC) não atingiu o nível de $20.000 esta semana, mas vários registros relacionados a volume e juros abertos foram feitos no caminho até $19.484. Uma conquista notável foi o interesse aberto em contratos futuros agregados, que atingiu US$ 7,4 bilhões em bolsas de derivativos.

Os contratos futuros BTC agregam juros abertos. Fonte: BTC: Skew
Como descrito acima, houve um aumento de 110% nos últimos 6 meses, e também vale a pena notar que a Bolsa Mercantil de Chicago (CME) detém agora mais de US$ 1,1 bilhão desses contratos. Estes dados são provas indiscutíveis da crescente participação institucional nos mercados de BTC.

O volume subiu a novos patamares, o preço do BTC irá seguir?
O volume total do mercado de moedas criptográficas também atingiu um recorde em 24 de novembro. Alguns investidores podem inferir que este é um evento de alta, mas é importante lembrar que toda negociação tem um comprador e um vendedor. Portanto, como a entrada de grandes vendedores pode ser considerada como uma alta?

O volume diário total de moedas criptográficas, USD. Fonte: TradingView
O volume total em cada troca à vista atingiu US$ 285 bilhões esta semana, mas há sempre a possibilidade de que algumas dessas trocas possam ter inflado seus volumes. Apesar disso, US$ 285 bilhões representam um aumento de 11% em comparação com o pico de 13 de março.

Os mercados de opções de bitcoin também estabeleceram ontem uma nova alta de juros em aberto. Estes são os contratos que um comprador paga adiantado por compra (chamadas) ou venda (puts) a um preço pré-determinado no futuro.

Observe como as opções da BTC, atualmente de US$ 5 bilhões, representam um aumento de 316% em relação ao nível de US$ 1,2 bilhões de apenas seis meses atrás. Mesmo que isto inclua opções de compra e venda, este impressionante aumento de liquidez é um evento positivo.

As opções com juros em aberto merecem atenção especial.

O maior interesse aberto tende a chamar a atenção para novas mesas de arbitragem e abrir portas para clientes institucionais maiores. Ainda assim, para avaliar melhor como os comerciantes profissionais estão precificando para continuar a corrida de touro atual, deve-se analisar as opções com inclinação delta de 25%.

Um enviesado delta positivo de 25% indica que as opções de put (venda) custam mais do que opções similares de call (compra), indicando assim um sentimento de baixa. Por outro lado, um enviesamento negativo sugere uma inclinação de bullishness.

O gráfico acima mostra que o valor de -27,5% em 24 de novembro, praticamente iguala seu nível mais baixo de todos os tempos. Indiscutivelmente, esta é uma condição extremamente alta e os dados indicam que os negociantes de opções não estão dispostos a vender proteção de cima.

Portanto, mesmo que o nível de US$ 20.000 ainda não tenha sido quebrado, há razões suficientes para celebrar um mercado saudável sem sinais de alavancagem excessiva ou diminuição do interesse dos investidores.

Bitcoin rejected at critical support level – but analysts remain bullish

  • Bitcoin experienced a sharp decline overnight, which occurred after a period of immense strength.
    This took BTC to $18,000, which has long been a strong support for the crypto-currency.
  • Where Bitcoin goes next will depend largely on whether it can hold above the support that exists at this important price level.
  • One trader points out how aggressively this bearish move was bought – suggesting that Bitcoin may be able to see much more upside potential in the near future.

Bitcoin has shown some signs of immense strength in recent days and weeks, with buyers trying to take by Crypto Investor control of price action as the bears have been showing the first signs of vitality for weeks.

The coming days should provide some serious insight into where the market as a whole is headed next.

One trader is now noting that the crypto currency’s reaction to this sell-off suggests that a long-term price floor is being created.

He believes that this will allow BTC to recover and continue its rise, “undoing” the first wave of over-eager buyers.

Bitcoin experiences its first major sell-off, reaching $19,000

Over the course of Bitcoin’s several-month uptrend, the crypto currency has shown some immense signs of strength and has experienced only fleeting sell-offs, each followed by an upward trend.

This recent slump does not appear to be an exception to this trend – the BTC price climbed to $17,650 before facing a “V-shaped” recovery, which resulted in a significant further uptrend.

The asset is now in the process of recovering the gains lost as a result of this decline. And BTC may be able to make further gains in the near future.

Analyst: Bitcoin has reached a new price floor

A trader writes in a tweet: The reaction of the crypto-currency to this latest sell-off indicates that a new price floor has been reached which could allow BTC to rise significantly higher.

He now observes an upward movement and comments that the aggressive buying pressure during this recent rally was promising.

“What you should be looking at now is how aggressively this dip is being bought. I think the floor is passively asserting itself. First, overzealous buyers are ruined. This is a sign of that.”

The trends of the next few hours should give an insight into how Bitcoin and the aggregated crypto markets will behave this week.

L’esposizione Bitcoin di Warren Buffett: il CEO di Berkshire Hathaway si dice che si stia accumulando in PayPal

Dopo Apple, Google e l’oro di quest’anno, l'”Oracolo di Omaha” potrebbe finalmente cambiare la sua melodia su Bitcoin. E se non attraverso PayPal, allora direttamente in BTC al suo top.

Secondo le ultime voci che girano, il basher Bitcoin Warren Buffett potrebbe diventare un investitore indiretto nel principale asset digitale attraverso l’ultimo amante della crittografia, PayPal.

Anche se una cosa del genere dovesse accadere, non sarà una cosa fuori dal comune perché, in passato, Buffett si è sbagliato su Google e Amazon e si è pentito di non averli acquistati.

Inoltre, l'”Oracolo di Omaha” ha finalmente cambiato la sua musica sull’oro nell’agosto del 2020, il mese in cui il metallo prezioso ha raggiunto il massimo storico sopra i 2.000 dollari. Attualmente, il metallo prezioso è scambiato intorno ai 1.880 dollari.

Nel frattempo, Bitcoin Pro sta correndo verso il suo ATH di $20.000, in crescita del 150% YTD. L’asset digitale, che attualmente è scambiato al di sopra di $18.000, è salito dell’88% da quando Buffet ha definito il Bitcoin un “veleno per topi al quadrato” nel maggio 2018 ed è salito di circa il 230% da quando l’ha definito un “dispositivo di gioco d’azzardo” un anno dopo.

Quindi, ci si può aspettare che Buffett entri finalmente in BTC quando l’asset digitale raggiungerà il suo nuovo picco, come molti altri nomi di alto profilo hanno visto fare perno su di esso nel 2020.

L’amministratore delegato di Berkshire Hathaway ha già scaricato le sue azioni bancarie quest’anno e si è buttato sulle grandi farmacie come Pfizer mentre annunciano i vaccini.

Da JPMorgan Chase, Wells Fargo e M&T Bank a PNC Financial, Buffett ha tagliato la sua partecipazione nelle azioni bancarie.

Ora, si dice che stia accumulando una posizione in PayPal. Buffett possiede già azioni di Visa, Mastercard e American Express.

PayPal sta scommettendo molto sulla crittografia perché ha permesso ai suoi clienti di comprare, vendere e tenere in mano Bitcoin e altre crittografie solo il mese scorso e l’anno prossimo permetterà loro di fare acquisti utilizzando queste valute digitali.

Il fornitore di servizi di pagamento online ha già raggiunto l’85% del volume di BinanceUS nel suo primo mese di offerta di crittografia, grazie ai suoi clienti “desiderosi”.

A fine settembre 2020 i ricavi di 12 mesi di PayPal hanno superato i 20 miliardi di dollari, con un free cash flow in crescita del 43% rispetto allo stesso periodo del 2019.

Visa e Mastercard sono stati due dei titoli più performanti degli anni ’20, con l’avvento delle transazioni digitali nel mondo. Ora è una seconda occasione per Buffett di perdere un’opportunità non solo con PayPal, ma anche con Bitcoin e crypto.

MicroStrategy CEO enthüllt, wie viel Bitcoin er besitzt

Michael Saylor, CEO von MicroStrategy, hat enthüllt, wie viel Bitcoin ihm persönlich gehört.

In einem heute veröffentlichten Tweet sagte Saylor: “Ich persönlich #hodl 17.732 BTC, die ich für durchschnittlich 9.882 Dollar pro Stück gekauft habe”.

Nach den Zahlen zu urteilen, bedeutet das, dass Saylor 175.227.624 $ für Bitcoin ausgegeben hat, was beim heutigen Bitcoin-Preis einen Wert von 236.291.312 $ hat.

Saylor fügte außerdem hinzu, dass er das Unternehmen vor jedem persönlichen Bitcoin-Kauf darüber informiert habe: “Ich habe MicroStrategy über diese Beteiligungen informiert, bevor sich das Unternehmen entschied, Bitcoin für sich selbst zu kaufen.

Saylors Bitcoin-Konvertierung
Saylor ist ein eifriger Befürworter von Bitcoin geworden, in einer bemerkenswerten Kehrtwendung seiner früheren Ansichten über die Krypto-Währung. Im Jahr 2013 behauptete er, dass die “Tage von Bitcoin gezählt sind” und verglich sie mit Online-Glücksspielen.

Seitdem hat er seine Ansichten geändert und nannte Bitcoin “eine Million Mal besser als Gold”. Unter seiner Führung ist MicroStrategy zu einem der führenden institutionellen Investoren von Bitcoin geworden und hat seit August dieses Jahres 425 Millionen Dollar in Bitcoin investiert.

Während der Telefonkonferenz wies Saylor darauf hin, dass die kürzliche Annahme von Bitcoin durch PayPal und Square als “Legitimierung” für die Krypto-Währung gilt.

 

Dave Portnoy wygląda na nienawidzącego BTC All of a Sudden

Oh Dave Portnoy, co się stało? Zacząłeś być wielkim adwokatem Bitcoinów, a teraz wydajesz się tego nienawidzić. Co sprawiło, że tak drastycznie zmieniłeś zdanie?

Dave Portnoy włączył Bitcoin’a

Jak wszyscy pamiętamy, to była wielka sprawa w sierpniu tego roku, kiedy to Winklevoss Twins z Gemini Exchange w Nowym Jorku postanowił wyjaśnić Portnoy’owi bitcoin po tym, jak przyznał, że nie ma pojęcia co to było i jak to działało na jego podkaście.

Po kilku godzinach spędzonych z Bliźniakami oszacowano, że złoto ostatecznie straci na wartości dzięki planom Elona Piżma dotyczącym wydobycia asteroid i że BTC będzie prawdopodobnie żył jeszcze przez dłuższy czas.

Kiedy wszystko się skończyło, Portnoy z wdzięcznością ogłosił, że zamierza zrobić pierwszy krok w kierunku inwestycji w bitcoin. Niestety, nie wygląda na to, aby ten krok został zrobiony po tym wszystkim, biorąc pod uwagę, że teraz mówi o Bitcoinu jako o schemacie Ponziego – czego należy za wszelką cenę unikać.

Wielka szkoda, biorąc pod uwagę, że cena aktywa wzrosła o około 400 dolarów w ciągu ostatnich 48 godzin, aby osiągnąć 10 700 dolarów, a najwyższy poziom został osiągnięty w ciągu nieco ponad tygodnia. W ostatnim wywiadzie, Portnoy wyjaśnił, co następuje o światowej numerze jeden waluty cyfrowej według limitu rynkowego:

To tylko jeden wielki plan Ponziego. Wchodzisz i nie musisz być tym, który trzyma torbę. To nie różni się od rynku akcji. Każdy pompuje swoją własną [monetę] w porządku.

Kilka osób w społeczności kryptońskiej nie przyjmuje dobrze słów Portnoya i krytykuje go na portalach społecznościowych. Jameson Lopp – współzałożyciel i główny technolog w firmie ochroniarskiej Bitcoin Casa w Kolorado – stwierdził na swojej stronie na Twitterze:

Oh, mój drogi Dave. Zgodnie z tą definicją, każdy publicznie notowany majątek to Ponzi.

The Analysts Fight Back

Inni analitycy, tacy jak Willy Woo, szybko nie zgodzili się z wypowiedziami Portnoya, ale też wyjaśnili, dlaczego uważają, że ktoś taki jak Portnoy – który jest stosunkowo nowy w kryptońskiej przestrzeni – będzie miał takie pomysły, jeśli chodzi o brak zabezpieczeń w świecie bitcoinów. Stwierdził:

Strukturalnie, ludzie nazywają rzeczy schematami Ponziego, kiedy wyglądają jak bańka i nie wykazują rzeczywistej produktywności. Wczesne startupy z coraz większymi wycenami wpadają do tego obozu. Rzecz w tym, że wygląda to jak schemat Ponziego, dopóki nie przejmie on roli nowej normy i nie zmieni świata.

Nie do końca sprawiedliwe jest również etykietowanie bitcoinów jako aktywów, które nie wykazały żadnej produktywności, biorąc pod uwagę, że od początku roku wzrosła ona o niecałe 50 procent. Pomimo całego gniewu wobec BTC, Portnoy zasugerował, że w końcu do niego wróci, biorąc pod uwagę, że ludzie w przestrzeni BTC są “jego rodzajem”.

Head of KuCoin on the hack: “We found the suspects”

KuCoin CEO Johnny Lyu said the exchange identified suspects in the hack.

The authorities are now involved

Another batch of tokens valued at $ 64 million has been recovered from suspicious addresses, bringing the total amount recovered to $ 204 million so far.

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

KuCoin founder Johnny Lyu claims that the suspects in the security breach have been identified “with substantial evidence”, linking them to the September hack.

On his Twitter account on October 3, Lyu said authorities were now officially involved in the case.

Bitcoin Rush also revealed that a new set of digital assets worth $ 64 million is no longer under the control of hackers, which he says brings the total value of recovered assets to $ 204 million. .

A quick update from my last livestream on September 30th.

After further investigation, we found the suspects in Security Incident 9.26 #KuCoin with substantial evidence at hand. Law enforcement officials and the police are officially involved in the action.

New developments after the KuCoin hack

In his Twitter feed, Lyu further revealed that the exchange was returning to full functionality after the security incident. According to him, 31 tokens have resumed normal deposit and withdrawal services, major high cap coins such as BTC, ETH and USDT are expected to be used soon.

Shortly after the hack was detected, all trading , withdrawal, and deposit services on KuCoin were shut down as the exchange worked to thwart the hackers. BeinCrypto reported on September 28 that the hacking strategy involved compromising the platform’s active wallets containing large amounts of generally small-cap ERC-20 tokens, such as Synthetix and OCEAN.

Deposit and withdrawal services for 10 projects have now resumed at https://KuCoin.com with a growing number lining up to follow.

Immediately after the hack, unprecedented cross – platform joint action ensured that hackers did not get off so easily. BeinCrypto previously reported that $ 35 million USDT was frozen in suspicious ETH, OMNI, TRON, and EOS wallets. At the time, the hack was believed to have compromised around $ 150 million in tokens.

New information from Lyu, however, indicates that the total value of tokens stolen by hackers far exceeds this figure. The extent of law enforcement involvement remains unknown, as Lyu provided few details. However, the regulatory stance on cryptocurrency in Singapore, where the exchange is registered, is one of the friendliest in Asia.

Coca-Cola to close office in Argentina and move administration to Brazil

Coca-Cola will close administrative offices in Argentina and move its operations to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, amid a restructuring plan for the multinational. The information is from the newspaper La Nación.

According to the report, this is a move that will affect all of Latin America. The management of Peru, Bolivia, Uruguay and Chile will also be transferred to the Carioca capital. Production and marketing of the brand’s products will continue to be supplied normally.

Coca-Cola is moving forward, says the Argentine newspaper, with an aggressive program of voluntary layoffs that puts jobs at a regional level in the country.

To La Nación, the multinational said it was undergoing a global reorganisation. This means that in Latin America, the reorganization includes the creation of three new geographical zones that, replacing the current structure, will work closely with the global leadership teams.

In the new model, according to the report, Brazil takes Argentina’s place as regional leader.

Wanted by Portal do Bitcoin, Coca Cola Brasil confirmed that a global restructuring is underway, but that there are no specific details about the changes in Argentina.

In a sequence of tweets, the profile of the company’s Argentine division stated that it “categorically denied the change in operations” and reaffirmed its commitment to the country. However, Coca Cola did not comment on the administrative changes.

According to the newspaper, with the changes, Argentina’s number one executive, Spain’s Luisa Ortega, will take care of the brand’s operations in Central America. The Argentine operation will move to an organisational structure that will be headed by the CEO in Brazil.

In May, the company announced the cutting of 4,000 jobs worldwide as a result of the crisis caused by the coronavirus.
