TYGODNIOWE SPOJRZENIE NA BITCOIN: CENA WISI CZARNO-BIAŁY DZWONEK I ROSNĄCE PLONY

Bitcoin rozpoczął nowy tydzień z mocnym akcentem, kończąc na wyższym poziomie w poniedziałek wśród spekulacyjnych zakładów przeciwko nominowanej przez sekretarza skarbu Janet Yellen na przesłuchaniu potwierdzającym w Waszyngtonie, gdzie przedstawi argumenty na rzecz budżetów fiskalnych na dużą skalę, aby zamortyzować ekonomiczny opór prowadzony przez COVID-19.

Flagowa kryptokur waluta, która zarobiła sobie znaczek „cyfrowego złota“ za swoje podobieństwo do żółtego metalu, wzrosła o 2,23 procent, by w poniedziałek skończyć blisko 36.616 dolarów. Jej wzrost odpowiadał trendom na amerykańskim rynku akcji, gdzie indeksy S&P 500, Dow Jones i Nasdaq Composite rosły w parze.

PĘTLINA ROZPUSZCZALNA (DEBT BUBBLE)

W ciągu ostatnich czterech lat administracja amerykańska zwiększyła swoje zadłużenie o prawie 7 bilionów dolarów, co daje łączną kwotę blisko 21,6 bilionów dolarów. Prezydent-elekt Joe Biden planuje zwiększyć wydatki rządowe o co najmniej bilion dolarów. Posunięcie to postawiłoby gospodarkę amerykańską na równi z innymi zadłużonymi gospodarkami, takimi jak Grecja, Japonia i Włochy.

Pani Yellen popiera politykę gołębi pocztowych, argumentując, że Stany Zjednoczone „ryzykują dłuższą, bardziej bolesną recesję“ i „długoterminowe blizny“, jeśli nie wprowadzą ekspansywnych bodźców fiskalnych.

„Ani prezydent-elekt, ani ja nie proponujemy tego pakietu pomocowego, nie doceniając ciężaru zadłużenia kraju“ – powiedziała pani Yellen, zgodnie z jej przygotowanymi uwagami, których świadkiem był Financial Times.

„Ale w tej chwili, przy historycznie niskich stopach procentowych, najmądrzejszą rzeczą, jaką możemy zrobić, jest działanie na wielką skalę. Na dłuższą metę uważam, że korzyści znacznie przewyższą koszty, zwłaszcza jeśli zależy nam na pomocy ludziom, którzy zmagają się z problemami od bardzo dawna.“

Analityk Dan Tapiero jest przekonany, że polityka pani Yellen spowoduje dalszy wzrost cen bitcoinów i złota. Założyciel DTAP Capital zapewnił we wtorek na swoim tweeterze, że „[maksymalny] bodziec fiskalny i monetarny do czasu, gdy obecna stopa bezrobocia, wynosząca 6,7 procent, spadnie do 4 procent.“

„Just HODL“, dodał analityk, odnosząc się do popularnego slangu, który prosi inwestorów, aby trzymać Bitcoin długoterminowo bez koncentrowania się na krótkoterminowych iteracjach cenowych.

BITCOIN WOBEC ROSNĄCYCH ZYSKÓW

Tymczasem Bitcoin stoi w obliczu krótkotrwałego zagrożenia w postaci wzrostu rentowności obligacji. Tak zwane realne stopy zwrotu z obligacji skarbowych – metryka, która śledzi potencjalne zyski z obligacji po dostosowaniu ich do inflacji – wzrosły z rekordowo niskiego poziomu minus 1,2 proc. do ponad 0,95 proc.

Analitycy, w tym Leslie Falconio, starsza strateg ds. stałych dochodów w UBS Global Wealth Management, oczekują, że stopy zwrotu będą wyższe. To samo wydarzyło się w 2013 r., po tym jak Rezerwa Federalna zaczęła się znienacka. Bitcoin może handlować tymi nagłówkami, ponieważ coraz więcej instytucji restrukturyzuje swoje portfele, aby dostosować je do wyższego oprocentowania zadłużenia.

Ripple (XRP): companies and cryptocurrency finally finished?

Few cryptocurrencies polarize as strongly as XRP. The cryptocurrency, issued by Ripple Labs, divides the crypto community. The fact that the American securities regulator SEC is now charging the company with a lawsuit raises the question of the legitimacy of the company and its cryptocurrency more than ever. XRP investors in particular are wondering whether the cryptocurrency, which is often referred to as “Bankencoin”, can still have a future. An assessment.

For quite a few crypto enthusiasts who value decentralization, Bitcoin Code was and is a highly centralized project. Some critics even describe Ripple Labs – including its crypto currency – as a scam . The fact that the degree of centralization is very high cannot be dismissed out of hand. Around two thirds of all XRPs are tied to Ripple Labs and its boards.

What happens on the blockchain and in Ripple’s transactions is therefore in the hands of a few people and their personal interests

Already in an earlier investigation by BitMEX research team we came to the resultthat XRP is not comparable to other cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin or Ethereum. The supposedly decentralized consensus mechanism with its nodes effectively depends on the Ripple.com servers.

The US securities regulator SEC now indicted Ripple Labs on December 22ndbecause XRP is a security that has been issued without authorization. If the SEC lawsuit is successful, Ripple Labs and the two board members, Christian Larson and Brad Garlinghouse, would have to answer to the court for an unauthorized IPO amounting to $ 1.3 billion.

Here, too, the starting point is the high degree of centralization of XRP, which, according to the SEC’s classification, contributes significantly to its classification as a security. While Bitcoin or Ether, for example, do not fall under the American Securities Act due to their decentralized design.

How serious are the charges against Ripple Labs?

To put it unequivocally: The situation is more than serious for Ripple Labs, as well as the aforementioned board members and the price value of XRP. The SEC has been targeting Ripple Labs since the XRP issue in 2013. The current indictment is well prepared. It is absolutely safe to assume that the SEC knows very well what it is doing and how likely it is that it will get away with its charges. That XRP representatives are there, a petition Submitting it to the White House is unlikely to change that much.

This can also be seen in the less objective attempts at explanationby Ripple CEO Brad Garlinghouse, who suspects a campaign against him and his company. He warns that taking action against Ripple Labs would be downright anti-American and would benefit China. However, the combative rhetoric is unlikely to impress the SEC. Even in the unlikely event that Ripple Labs and the board members get away with a black eye, the damage is enormous.

No stock market, no liquidity, no investors

In view of the accusation that XRP is a security (security) under American law, the crypto exchanges are also reacting. More and more of them enter the delisting of XRP known . Including the largest and most important ones such as Coinbase, Binance US or Bittrex. After all, they are not licensed to list securities.

Even if the necessity of delisting only affects American jurisdiction, strictly speaking, the impact is still existential. The value of a cryptocurrency that can only be used in some regions is massively jeopardized in view of the business case of XRP – enabling international payments. In addition, decisions by the SEC send a strong international signal.

In the course of the delistings, the liquidation of XRP is likely to increase further. The hope for the high institutional sums of money that are currently causing the price fireworks for Bitcoin is now off the table. Investment companies are also likely to refrain from traditionally securitized XRP financial products such as funds or certificates for the time being.

JP Morgan prognostiziert ein Kursziel von $140.000+ für Bitcoin, aber es gibt einen Haken

Während Bitcoin (BTC) weiterhin die Preisleiter über $30.000 klettert, wird die allgemeine Stimmung rund um das Flaggschiff unter den Kryptowährungen immer bullischer.

Mehrere große institutionelle Investoren und Institutionen selbst ändern ihre Stimmung über BTC und wetten groß, wobei viele einige große Vorhersagen machen.

Laut dem Strategen Nikolaos Panigirtzoglou wäre dieser Schritt nur möglich, wenn Bitcoin Pro weiterhin Investoren aus Gold anzieht. Er warnt jedoch, dass dies ein recht langfristiger Prozess ist und Investoren nicht erwarten sollten, dass dies in den nächsten Jahren geschieht.

Der letzte, der eine kühne Vorhersage über BTC macht, ist JPMorgan, die größte US-Bank. Der Bankenriese erwartet, dass die weltweite Nummer eins der Kryptowährungen in Zukunft ein langfristiges Ziel von 146.000 $ erreichen wird. In ihrer Montagsnotiz erklärt die Bank, dass sich der 300-prozentige Anstieg von BTC im Jahr 2020 in diesem Jahr wiederholen könnte, aber die Bewegung wäre nicht nachhaltig.

„Während wir die Möglichkeit nicht ausschließen können, dass sich die aktuelle spekulative Manie weiter ausbreitet und den Bitcoin-Preis in Richtung der Konsensregion zwischen 50.000 und 100.000 Dollar treibt, glauben wir, dass sich ein solches Preisniveau als nicht nachhaltig erweisen würde“, heißt es in der Notiz.

„Eine Konvergenz der Volatilitäten zwischen Bitcoin und Gold wird wahrscheinlich nicht schnell passieren und ist unserer Meinung nach ein mehrjähriger Prozess. Dies impliziert, dass das theoretische Bitcoin-Kursziel von über 146.000 Dollar als langfristiges Ziel betrachtet werden sollte und somit ein nicht nachhaltiges Kursziel für dieses Jahr darstellt.“

Über das letzte Wochenende war BTC bis auf 35.000 $ geklettert, bevor es am Montag um mehr als 17 % fiel. Dies war der größte Ein-Tages-Rückgang der Kryptowährung seit März 2020.

JPMorgan erwartet jedoch immer noch, dass Bitcoin mit Gold als „alternative“ Währung konkurrieren wird, wenn es um Millennial-Investoren geht, die dafür bekannt sind, das „digitale Gold“ gegenüber traditionellem Gold zu bevorzugen, was die Nachfrage nach der Kryptowährung antreibt.

JP Morgan und Bitcoin

Auch die Vorhersage von JP Morgan sollte ein wenig auf die leichte Schulter genommen werden, da Panigirtzoglou zuvor seine Vorhersage zurücknehmen musste, dass Rohstoffhandelsberater die Bitcoin-Rallye Ende November behindern könnten, als Bitcoin bereits nahe an Allzeithochs war.

„Die anhaltende Rallye von Bitcoin stellt unsere frühere Einschätzung in Frage, dass überkaufte Positionen von Momentum-Tradern wie CTAs kurzfristig Gewinnmitnahmen oder Mean-Reversion-Ströme auslösen könnten.“

Laut einem Bloomberg-Bericht hat JP Morgan auch geschätzt, dass bis zu 600 Milliarden Dollar potenziell in Bitcoin fließen könnten, wenn Pensionsfonds und Versicherungsgesellschaften in den USA, der Eurozone, Großbritannien und Japan 1% des Vermögens in Bitcoin investieren.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Shenzhen Stock Exchange to offer Blockchain-driven operations

The Shenzhen Stock Exchange announced that it would be adding Blockchain solutions to its operations. We tell you about the new project!

The Blockchain technology is starting to gain momentum worldwide but especially in China. Now the Shenzhen Stock Exchange announced the upcoming launch of a Blockchain solution for trading.

Jack Dorsey: „Bitcoin and Blockchain are the future of Twitter“
Blockchain solutions for the stock market
On September 30th a report was published by a local media revealing the official launch of a Blockchain registration and custody system.

According to the report, the platform was created as part of the Beijing Regional Trade Centre and will be tested with the Beijing Fourth Board Market, the city’s regional stock market.

The media also noted that the Blockchain will help reduce the cost of information asymmetry. It will also standardize the management of corporate actions and better perform the function of financing market actions.

It is not the first time that the Blockchain technology has the ability to make processes more efficient; however, some still remain sceptical about its potential.

Beijing establishes itself as the main Blockchain city in China

China, the paradise of technology
Especially China has become a welcoming country for the development of the Blockchain technology.

In fact, in July, the Chinese Securities Regulatory Commission allowed regional stock markets to work on building a Blockchain pilot. And, of course, since then these stock markets have accelerated the construction of systems based on the Blockchain.

Ge Yimiao said that the Beijing Stock Exchange and the Shenzhen Stock Exchange will cooperate in the implementation of the blockchain.

Thus, the momentum generated by China is so impressive that they have applied for more than half of all blockchain patents worldwide.

Yes, just like you read it. A study called „2020 Blockchain Industry Development“ states that Chinese companies have applied for 4,435 blockchain patents.

Specifically Alibaba Group is the company that has applied for the highest number of Blockchain patents in 2020, 200 to be exact. And, to put it in context, Alibaba has 10 times the number filed by IBM.

Without a doubt, the Blockchain technology is gaining traction in the world as it demonstrates its potential. What will be the next project to exploit the potential of the Blockchain technology? We want to know your opinion!
