Teurer Irrtum: Mutant Ape NFT verkauft für 17 USDC statt 17 ETH

Bei einem unglücklichen Versuch, ein digitales Kunstwerk von Mutant Ape zu verkaufen, verkaufte der NFT-Inhaber es fälschlicherweise für $17 statt für $54k, was dem Gegenwert von 17 ETH entspricht.

Während Fehler unvermeidlich sind, sind einige teurer als andere, und dieser hat einen NFT-Inhaber $54.000 gekostet.

Nachdem er den Mutant Ape #5275 NFT vor einigen Stunden geprägt hatte, versuchte er ihn auf OpenSea zu verkaufen, aber das Geschäft lief nicht so, wie er es sich gewünscht hätte. Anstatt seine Ape für $54.000 zu verkaufen, verkaufte der Besitzer sie fälschlicherweise für $17, was 99,9% unter einem Mindestpreis von 7,95 ETH ($24.200) liegt.

$17 statt $54k

Die meisten digitalen Sammlerstücke auf OpenSea und anderen Ethereum-basierten NFT-Märkten werden in der Regel in ETH gehandelt. Infolgedessen dachte der Besitzer, dass das Angebot für seine NFT 17 ETH (54.000 $) betrug, und er nahm es an, ohne zu wissen, dass das Angebot nur 17 $ in USDC-Stablecoin betrug.

Mutant Ape Yacht Club (MAYC) ist eine Sammlung von 20.000 mutierten Affen, die entweder durch eine öffentliche Münzprägung oder durch das Aussetzen bestehender gelangweilter Affen mit einem Fläschchen Mutantenserum erzeugt werden können. Interessante Neuigkeiten gibt es momentan auch BitQH zu verkünden.

Laut dem Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC), dem Projekt hinter den Bored Ape und Mutant Ape NFT Sammlungen, wird der MAYC verwendet, um Affenbenutzer mit einer mutierten Version ihrer Bored Apes zu belohnen.

Über 10.000 Mutant Apes wurden der Öffentlichkeit über eine niederländische Auktion zur Verfügung gestellt. BAYC sagte, dass der Prägepreis bei 3 ETH begann und im Laufe von 9 Stunden allmählich auf 0,01 ETH sank.

Den Daten von Etherscan zufolge hat der Besitzer des Mutant Ape #5275 etwa 2,87 ETH ($9.100), einschließlich Gebühren, für die Prägung des NFT ausgegeben, bevor er ihn irrtümlich für nur $17 und nicht für 17 ETH, wie er dachte, verkaufte. Interessanterweise hat der Benutzer, der die NFT gekauft hat, sie für 5 ETH weiterverkauft und damit in weniger als drei Stunden einen Gewinn von mehr als 15.900 Dollar erzielt.

Während der ursprüngliche Besitzer wahrscheinlich seine Verluste zählt, sind Mitglieder der Krypto-Community der Meinung, dass OpenSea ein ausfallsicheres System einrichten sollte, um Benutzer zu warnen, wenn sie versuchen, ihre digitale Kunst deutlich unter dem Mindestpreis zu verkaufen.

NBA-Star Stephen Curry kauft einen gelangweilten Affen
In der Zwischenzeit hat CryptoPotato berichtet, dass der dreimalige NBA-Champion Stephen Curry dem NFT-Zug beigetreten ist und einen seltenen Bored Ape für 180.000 Dollar gekauft hat. Interessanterweise wurde gestern einer der seltensten Affen für 1,3 Millionen Dollar verkauft.

Les marchés des crypto-monnaies perdent 150 milliards de dollars alors que la correction du bitcoin s’accentue

La capitalisation totale du marché des crypto-monnaies a chuté de 8,6 % en moins de 24 heures, alors que la correction du bitcoin s’intensifie.

Les marchés des crypto-monnaies sont une mer de rouge pendant la session de négociation asiatique de ce matin, les pertes du bitcoin étant ressenties plus lourdement dans le reste de l’écosystème.

Environ 150 milliards de dollars ont quitté les marchés au cours des dernières 24 heures, la capitalisation boursière totale étant passée d’un sommet intrajournalier de 1,81 trillion de dollars aux niveaux actuels de 1,66 trillion de dollars. L’analyste technique Michaël van de Poppe considère le niveau de 1,5 trillion de dollars comme un support critique.

L’effondrement massif du marché a été laissé par le bitcoin, comme d’habitude, puisque l’actif a franchi le support à 54 000 $ et se dirige vers le prochain niveau.

Après dix jours de consolidation, les prix du BTC ont cassé le support le 22 mars et ont continué à baisser depuis. Le prochain niveau de support se situe au niveau de la moyenne mobile exponentielle (MME) à 50 jours, qui se situe actuellement un peu au-dessus de 50 000 $. Cet indicateur technique est l’endroit où le support a été trouvé lors des deux premières corrections, selon le graphique BTC/USD de Tradingview.

Au moment de la rédaction de cet article, le BTC s’échangeait en baisse de 2% au cours des dernières 24 heures à 53 300 $, après un plus bas de 51 700 $ pendant les échanges asiatiques.

Les plus grands perdants de Crypto

L’Ethereum a suivi son grand frère avec un dump de 4% sur la journée pour tomber sous les 1 600 $ pour la première fois depuis le 6 mars. La correction totale pour l’ETH depuis son ATH de plus de 2 000 $ est de 22 % aux prix actuels.

Ces pertes sont relativement légères par rapport à certaines autres valeurs, comme UNI, qui a chuté de plus de 10 % dans la journée pour s’échanger à 27,75 $, selon Coingecko. Les utilisateurs et les investisseurs d’Uniswap ont peut-être été contrariés par l’absence de mise à l’échelle de la couche 2 lorsque le DEX lancera la version 3 le 5 mai.

Le jeton THETA de Theta Network, qui est récemment entré dans le top 10 des crypto-monnaies, a été durement touché avec une perte de 14 % sur la journée, retombant à 12,40 $.

IOTA a connu une chute similaire après l’annonce d’un partenariat avec DeFi le 24 mars. Parmi les autres jetons en difficulté aujourd’hui, citons DOT, XRP, BCH et XLM.

Des survivants?

Il n’y a pas beaucoup de survivants en ce jeudi rouge, mais Cardano a réussi à rester à flot avec un gain de 1,5 % sur la journée pour s’échanger à 1,13 $. Le jeton FIL de Filecoin s’est également bien comporté avec une hausse de 9 % pour atteindre 90 $, tandis que NPXS de Pundi X a bondi de 26 % au cours des dernières 24 heures.

Les prochains jours seront cruciaux pour déterminer s’il s’agit d’une nouvelle correction dans une tendance à la hausse ou si le marché haussier est finalement arrivé à son terme.

CEO da MicroStrategy lança curso Crypto gratuito

Bitcoin for Everybody‘: CEO da MicroStrategy lança curso Crypto gratuito

O CEO da MicroStrategy continua a encontrar novas maneiras de difundir o evangelho do Bitcoin.

  • Michael Saylor lançou um novo curso online sobre Bitcoin.
  • Ele oferece lições sobre „economia, investimento, filosofia e história“.
  • O CEO da MicroStrategy está fazendo tudo para fazer a proselitismo de criptografia.

Se Bitcoin

é uma religião, então o CEO da MicroStrategy, Michael Saylor, é seu sumo sacerdote.

Desde que investiu uma parcela significativa do tesouro de sua empresa no ano passado, ele tem dito coisas como „o nome de Deus é Satoshi“, e comparando Bitcoin a um „enxame de vespas cibernéticas servindo à deusa da sabedoria, alimentando-se do fogo da verdade“. Ele realizou uma conferência na Bitcoin Pro semana passada, numa tentativa de conseguir a adesão de outras empresas de capital aberto, e previu que uma „avalanche“ de novos investidores se juntaria à cruzada.

Agora, Saylor está trazendo Bitcoin para sua Academia Saylor, sem fins lucrativos, voltada para a educação. Um novo curso online promete ensinar „economia, investimento, filosofia e história Bitcoin, bem como seus componentes técnicos e práticos“, em um pacote de 12 horas.

Apresentando Bitcoin para Todos – um curso gratuito para educar o mundo em #bitcoin e ajudar qualquer pessoa que procure aproveitar esta rede monetária digital para promover a capacitação econômica. https://t.co/iqxv3vjHpg pic.twitter.com/VJz1kHiS8a

– Michael Saylor (@michael_saylor) 9 de fevereiro de 2021

Os detalhes do curso parecem ecoar algumas das retóricas de Saylor

Uma seção, intercalada com citações de pessoas como Coleridge e Mark Twain, afirma que Bitcoin vai acelerar a transformação da humanidade em uma civilização Kardeshev Tipo I. (O sistema Kardsehev agrupa civilizações hipotéticas em três categorias, dependendo de sua capacidade de aproveitar a energia do universo – o Tipo 1 pode aproveitar todo o potencial energético de seu próprio planeta).

E embora haja muitas evidências que sugerem que a mineração de Bitcoin é significativamente mais ávida por energia do que o sistema financeiro tradicional, isto geralmente não é considerado uma coisa boa.

Que o curso é parte da visão de Saylor para o domínio do criptograma a longo prazo não deveria ser muito surpreendente. Considere a fonte: A MicroStrategy possui agora mais de US$ 3 bilhões em Bitcoin.

Ethereum mining difficulty and Google searches reach new heights

Ethereum has reached historical highs in Google searches and also in its mining difficulty.

Historically, these are the main price indicators for cryptocurrencies.

Ethereum appears to be holding up as Bitcoin declines from its all-time high.

Bitcoin may have started to calm down after hitting its all-time high of over $ 40,000, but it looks like Ethereum isn’t ready to give up its own race just yet.

Two overwhelmingly positive metrics representing network health, Ethereum’s operating difficulties and Google search trends for “Ethereum” have reached all-time highs. In particular, Google search trends for Ethereum hit their all-time high during the bull run of 2017. This resurgence represents another significant increase in interest in the world’s leading smart contract platform.

Google Trends Highlight Ethereum User Interest

Ethereum is the second largest crypto platform, but much of its interest is still generated by speculation. ETH has a long way to go before reaching its maximum dominance in the development and use of applications . Indeed, the platform is still relatively slow to process transactions and charges high fees.

Nonetheless, Ethereum continues to grow. The explosion of the DeFi sector, which relies mainly on the ETH network, is fueling this growth. The increased exposure of the platform, mixed with the sharp increase in Bitcoin’s growth , has sparked renewed interest from potential investors.

Google search numbers show the increase in the number of people seeking to learn more about the platform. In addition, the previous record for searches reflected the last high price of Ethereum. This measurement could therefore be an indicator of what the general public expects from Ethereum.

Increased mining difficulty means more struggle to earn Ether

Ethereum is in the process of moving from ETH 1.0 to ETH 2.0. This major update changes Ethereum’s method of verifying transactions from Proof of Work to Proof of Stake . The transition is underway, and users have staked millions of Ether into the ETH 2.0 contract . However, Ethereum still uses proof of work for verification.

Proof of work requires specialized computer equipment and significant energy expenditure. So it is difficult for many of minors to get involved, unlike the PoS check. However, this increase in the difficulty of mining on the network means that more users than ever are checking the platform. The more the number of validators, or miners, increases in the sphere, the more the mining difficulty increases proportionally. The mining process therefore remains fair as validation capacities increase. This also represents an increased interest in the network and the ether gain.

Both of these measures are extremely positive for Ethereum, and may be an indicator of the direction the price of ether will take in the near future.

Artist received Bitcoin donation in 2013 and checks current price in disbelief
Ali Spagnola accepted a donation in bitcoin in 2013 at the urging of a fan. The musician and YouTuber had completely forgotten about the transaction until a few weeks back.

She then received no less than 1 bitcoin from a generous giver. That was about 50 dollars at the time.

Anyone who follows BTC knows that the price is many times higher now, but Ali knew little about it. Currently, this donation is worth $36,600.86.

Grote stijging in 1k BTC-adressen toont aan dat instellingen de dip hebben gekocht; Goldman Sachs zegt nog steeds maar 1% van het institutionele geld

Ondanks de gezonde terugval kan nog meer correctie nog niet worden uitgesloten, maar $ 30k zal worden beschermd omdat veel institutionele beleggers rond dit niveau kochten.

Bitcoin neemt een adempauze en zweeft rond de $ 35.000 na de diepe terugval eerder deze week. Deze winstneming met een ATH van $ 42.000 werd verwacht nadat Crypto Trader meer dan 1.000% steeg ten opzichte van het dieptepunt van maart 2020.

„Er zijn tekenen dat particuliere beleggers winst maken“, zegt Ryan Rabaglia, Global Head of Trading bij OSL. „Verhoogde volatiliteit is vaak gecorreleerd met een stijging van de deelname van de detailhandel.“

De markt concentreert zich momenteel met name op de US Dollar Index, die aan kracht wint en momenteel rond de 90 schommelt

„We denken dat een terugval gezond is“, zegt David Grider, de digitale strateeg bij Fundstrat Global Advisors. Volgens hem geeft de recente prijsactie niet aan dat Bitcoin de top heeft bereikt.

Verdere verliezen kunnen echter ook niet worden uitgesloten, aangezien mijnwerkers doorgaan met verkopen terwijl er geen significante instroom van stablecoin in beeld is. Ook vanuit Coinbase worden geen uitstromen gezien; In feite stroomt BTC in beurzen .

Op basis hiervan: „We hebben misschien een tweede dumping“, zei Ki Young Ju, CEO van dataprovider CryptoQuant.

Toch zal $ 30k worden beschermd, en in het geval van een dip, zullen we misschien niet onder de $ 28k zakken omdat „er veel institutionele investeerders zijn die BTC op het niveau van 30-32k hebben gekocht“, voegde Young Ju toe .

Deze instellingen waren eigenlijk bezig met het kopen van de dips die op zondag en maandag kwamen. Het grote aantal BTC-houders dat kan worden gezien als een gevolmachtigde voor institutionele adoptie “aanzienlijk gestegen” sinds begin 2021. Deze sprong in adres met minstens 1.000 BTC toont aan dat deze institutionele adoptie een blijvertje is.

Volgens Jeff Currie van Goldman Sachs is het niveau van institutionele investeringen in de markt echter nog steeds erg klein, hoewel „de markt volwassener begint te worden“

„De sleutel tot het creëren van enige vorm van stabiliteit op de markt is om een ​​toename van de deelname van institutionele beleggers te zien, en op dit moment zijn ze klein“, zei het hoofd grondstoffenonderzoek van de investeringsbank op CNBC., Eraan toevoegend dat de investering in BTC is: „ongeveer 1% ervan is institutioneel geld.“

Terwijl Bitcoin voor instellingen een hedge is tegen fiat-verlaging en het risico van inflatie, omdat het naar voren komt als een opslag van waarde , is het voor sommigen ook een manier om economisch onrecht te herstellen.

„Voor de eerste keer in de geschiedenis hebben we een Plan B-optie voor het huidige financiële systeem, dat jarenlang heeft geleid tot redlining, rassendiscriminatie en andere flagrante daden van retailbanken tegenover de zwarte gemeenschap“, aldus Isaiah Jackson, auteur van „Bitcoin & Zwart Amerika. “

Volgens hem geeft Bitcoin zwarte mensen de mogelijkheid om niet alleen hun geld te verschuiven, maar ook hun mentaliteit, omdat ’s werelds toonaangevende digitale valuta niet te confisqueren is en geen toegangsdrempel heeft.

Bitcoin Bull Run according to Plan B

Bitcoin Bull Run according to Plan B

The Bitcoin bulls are in charge. On 17 December, the No. 1 cryptocurrency broke through the sound barrier at US$23,000 for the first time, continuing its lunar journey. With the price gains, there is no stopping the bullish forecasts. Opinion Echo.

In the days following Bitcoin all-time highs, Twitter is a fun place to be. I-told-you-so slogans are being bandied about like there’s no tomorrow. Understandable, after all, it took the No. 1 Bitcoin Superstar cryptocurrency a whopping three years to get to the level it was trading at in late 2017.

To be best prepared for the coming bull run, it can be worthwhile to take a look at past bitcoin cycles. Accordingly, an old acquaintance has put the gains from past bull markets on top of the price level. It is, you guessed it, PlanB.

R.I.P. „lengthening cycles“ and „diminishing returns“ pic.twitter.com/MWhr5JXjRB
– PlanB (@100trillionUSD) December 17, 2020

PlanB is the originator of the stock-to-flow model. An uber-bullish price model that links bitcoin prices to the scarcity of the commodity. With each halving, BTC becomes scarcer, leading to exorbitant price swings in the medium term. The question that concerns the Bitcoin community is whether the returns, i.e. the price gains, decrease with each halving compared to the previous cycle. While BTC gained about 10,000 percent from November 2012 to July 2016, it was „only“ 2,000 percent in the second halving epoch.

However, if BTC were to rise to PlanB’s predicted value of USD 288,000 by the end of 2021, this would mean a price gain of around 2,800 percent from the underlying USD 10,000. However, this is not compatible with the narrative of diminishing returns.

Nevertheless, PlanB sticks to its price prediction and writes on Twitter that one can say goodbye to the idea that cycles are getting longer and less profitable:

Guggenheim Partner: Bitcoin’s fair value is 400,000 US dollars

The continued bullish behaviour of Guggenheim Partners also caused a stir. The asset manager recently announced that it would invest up to 10 percent of its 5.3 billion US dollar Macro Opportunities Fund in BTC. Some of this has already been done. The accumulation had begun since BTC was at 10,000 US dollars.

Now Scott Minerd, chief strategist at Guggenheim, also explains why Bitcoin is considered a great opportunity. Internal analyses have shown a fair value of no less than 400,000 US dollars per Bitcoin, Minerd told Bloomberg. He was „delighted“ by the recent rally.

Minerd links his daring price prediction of 400,000 US dollars to Bitcoin’s similarity to gold.

Bitcoin Breaks $22K al nuovo ATH: ha guadagnato oltre $3000 in un giorno

Il prezzo del Bitcoin solo recentemente ha infranto la barriera psicologica di 20.000 dollari. Tuttavia, nello stesso giorno, la principale moneta crittografica continua a registrare un nuovo ATH sopra i 22.000 dollari. Sorprendentemente, il prezzo del Bitcoin era di 19.300 dollari appena 24 ore fa – un aumento giornaliero di oltre 3000 dollari.

A sole due settimane dalla fine del 2020, la Bitcoin sembra dare agli hodlers una ricompensa per gli altri terribili 350 giorni in cui il mondo ha dovuto sperimentare tutto, dai timori di una nuova guerra mondiale, agli incendi massicci in Australia, alla pandemia globale che ha causato il crollo dei mercati, alla comparsa casuale di alcuni strani monoliti misteriosi senza alcun motivo.

CryptoPotato ha recentemente riferito che la Bitcoin ha rotto la soglia dei 20.000 dollari, portando il nuovo ATH a oltre 21.000 dollari. „La Bitcoin continua con la sua scoperta del prezzo ed è particolarmente interessante vedere dove andrà a finire“, dice l’articolo. Beh, sembra che „prossimo“ significhi „in alto“ – almeno nel breve termine.

Dopo aver rotto i 21.000 dollari, i tori Bitcoin non volevano saperne di supporti e hanno spinto per nuovi orizzonti. In sole 5 ore, sono riusciti a salire a 22.000 dollari, portando il marketcap totale del più grande crypto del mondo da 360 miliardi di dollari a circa 409 miliardi di dollari in un giorno.

Questo sarebbe stato il più grande limite di mercato nella storia della Bitcoin, e ha segnato il momento in cui TUTTI gli Hodlers della BTC nel mondo potevano dire di aver realizzato un profitto.

Al momento in cui scriviamo, il prezzo di BTC ha registrato un massimo giornaliero, che è il massimo di tutti i tempi, a 22.394 dollari (Bitstamp)

Bitcoin è in buona salute, ma si consiglia cautela
Da un punto di vista tecnico, Bitcoin è in un territorio inesplorato, ma alcuni indicatori sembrano ottimisti. Il MACD sulle candele 4 e 24 ore mostra una croce che potrebbe indicare un cambiamento verso una tendenza al rialzo nei prossimi giorni.

L’RSI è alto, quindi si consiglia cautela, ma non è ancora ai livelli estremi mostrati in precedenti occasioni, quindi potrebbe ancora dare spazio ad un aumento dei prezzi prima che i tori vogliano prendersi una pausa.

Per gli hodlers a lungo termine, il primo forte supporto in caso di una possibile correzione è vicino a $17950 secondo i ritracciamenti di Fibonacci e $19700 secondo la linea di supporto del canale rialzista che è stata rispettata da ottobre. Questo stesso canale pone Bitcoin tra i 21.000 e i 25.000 dollari entro la fine dell’anno.

Cosa c’è dietro Bullrun?

Molti fattori potrebbero spiegare i fondamenti di questa corsa rialzista, con il Bitcoin che si dimezza come uno dei più importanti da considerare.

Oltre alla carenza di gettoni causata dall’appetito delle istituzioni, l’algoritmo stesso del Bitcoin ha abbassato l’offerta del 50%, e i mercati potrebbero risentirne gli effetti. Il modello Stock-to-flow sembra piuttosto accurato a questo proposito, anche se la sua previsione di 30.000 dollari entro la fine dell’anno potrebbe essere un po‘ troppo ottimistica.

Un’altra cosa importante da notare è la recente ondata di investimenti istituzionali e nuovi prodotti orientati agli investimenti Bitcoin.

Square ha iniziato l’encierro quando ha annunciato un investimento di 50 milioni di dollari in Bitcoin e PayPal ha calpestato il gas quando ha annunciato il supporto per l’acquisto e la vendita di valute crittografiche

Ma il „dio del cripto“ è stato senza dubbio Michael Saylor, CEO di MicroStrategy, che è passato dall’avere solo un’altra azienda di successo, ad essere l’argomento di discussione in molti dibattiti nel crypto-verse dopo i suoi massicci investimenti in Bitcoin. Attualmente possiede circa mezzo miliardo di dollari in Bitcoin, con l’intenzione di raddoppiare la sua scorta di BTC.

Hacker loots over USD 8 million in NXM – CEO sends 370,000 tokens to the wrong address

An unknown hacker stole NXM tokens worth over USD 8 million today from the personal wallet of High Karp, CEO of DeFi insurance Nexus Mutual. This incident caused the price to drop by 15-20%.

Nexus Mutual CEO falls victim to hackers

According to a release from Nexus Mutual, the funds were withdrawn this morning through the manipulation of Karp’s computer.

The hacker reportedly managed to install a fake version of Crypto Investor on Karp’s computer. This led Karp astray and signed a transaction with his private key, which the NXM tokens sent directly to the hacker’s wallet.

The loot amounts to 370,000 NXM, which was worth $ 8.2 million at the time of the hack. The hacker has already started converting the tokens into Ethereum (ETH), with a total balance of 354 ETH worth more than $ 200,000.

Almost half of all tokens are still in his possession. The wallet has already been identified by Etherscan as a “ Nexus Mutual Hacker „.

Attackers duped CEO

According to Nexus Mutual, Karp use a hardware wallet. However, the attacker bypassed the protection by replacing the real transaction with his own.

Some hardware wallets should offer protection against this type of attack by requiring confirmation on the device itself, and the display should be protected against this form of manipulation. It can therefore currently be assumed that the CEO has not sufficiently checked the address.

Choosing the right provider is not always easy. Therefore, we recommend you to take a look at our Bitcoin Broker & Exchange Comparison. Trade on the safest and best exchanges in the world!For comparison

The attacker went through a KYC on Nexus Mutual 11 days ago. However, the hacker could not be fully identified as the investigation is still ongoing.

Because the real NXM tokens can only be traded after a successful KYC. Otherwise, WNXM can be used instead. It is therefore assumed that the hacker must also have used a false identity at the KYC.

NXM price drops by up to 20%

The NXM price fell nearly 20% since the attack, although the protocol itself was not affected. Nonetheless, the NXMs that were stolen in the hack make up 6 & of all tokens currently in circulation. So it’s no wonder that the price has plummeted so much.

Karp praised the hacker on Twitter for the „very nice trick“. He offered a $ 300,000 bounty when all of the NXMs are transferred back. He said the hacker would have difficulty laundering the sum.

However, you can currently see that the hacker has already managed to convert almost half of the WNXM into Ethereum. We are curious how the investigation will continue here.
