Bitcoin-stöld kommer sannolikt att öka i magert ekonomi efter COVID: Rapport

Cyberbrottslingar kan dock gynna en annan kryptovaluta under de kommande månaderna.

Cryptovaluta-relaterat bedrägeri och stöld kommer sannolikt att växa i post-COVID-19-världen, enligt en ny rapport från cybersäkerhet och antivirusleverantör Kaspersky Lab

Securelist, Kasperskys forskningsgrupp för cyberhot, publicerade en rapport om cyberhot till finansiella organisationer och prognostiserar vissa specifika typer av finansiella attacker som sannolikt kommer att växa 2021.

Securelist har förutspått att en våg av fattigdom som drivs av COVID-19-pandemin oundvikligen kommer att leda till att „fler människor tillgriper brott inklusive cyberbrott.“ Det kan också betyda en ökning av brott relaterade till Bitcoin ( BTC ).

Enligt Kasperskys forskningsarm är Bitcoin sannolikt den mest attraktiva tillgången för it-brottslighet eftersom den är den mest populära digitala tillgången. Rapporten lyder:

”Vi kan se vissa ekonomier krascha och lokala valutor sjunker, vilket skulle göra Bitcoin-stöld mycket mer attraktiv. Vi kan förvänta oss mer bedrägeri, främst inriktat på BTC, på grund av att denna kryptovaluta är den mest populära. ”

Securelists forskare föreslog också att online-gärningsmän kunde byta till mer integritetsfokuserade digitala tillgångar som Monero ( XMR ). Enligt företaget skulle denna omkoppling ske på grund av den ökande „tekniska kapaciteten för övervakning, deanonymisering och utnyttjande av BTC.“ Securelists rapport lyder:

”Vi kan förvänta oss att cyberbrottslingar byter till kryptovalutor för transitering för offren. Det finns en anledning att tro att de kanske byter till andra sekretessförbättrade valutor, som Monero, för att använda dessa först som en övergångsvaluta och sedan konvertera pengarna till valfri annan valutakurrency inklusive BTC. ”

Som tidigare rapporterats av Cointelegraph, minskade kryptorelaterade brott betydligt 2020, även om vissa kryptosektorer, som decentraliserad ekonomi, har blivit nya hotbeds för kriminell aktivitet. Enligt en rapport från det virtuella privata nätverksföretaget Atlas VPN kommer krypto- och blockchain-relaterade hack sannolikt att fortsätta att minska 2021.

Only 4% of Norway uses physical money while the country evaluates CBDC issuance, says Norges Bank executive

The use of physical money has declined in Norway since VOCID-19, but physical currency also brings forces that CBDCs may not have

Speaking at an event on Thursday, Ida Wolden Bache, deputy governor of Norway’s central bank, described a decline in cash payments when speaking about Central Bank Digital Currencies, or CBDCs.

„Only 4% of payments are now made in cash,“ Bache said in her speech during the Finance Norway Payments Conference. „This participation is approximately the same as in the spring and considerably lower than before the pandemic,“ she added. „As far as we know, the share of cash payments is lower in Norway than in any other country.

Norway uses the krone, the currency issued by Norges Bank, the country’s central bank. After concerns over COVID-19 arose in March, common points of personal contact became logically worrying for the countries . These included physical coins, which change hands constantly.

CBDCs also emerged as a hot topic in 2020. A large number of nations around the world are launching such a digital asset, with China boasting of testing its asset .

„A specific trend for Norway and some of our neighbouring countries is the low and declining level of cash use,“ Bache said after detailing several aspects of the CBDC’s global scenario.

The central bank’s director of monetary policy mentioned important qualities available in cash. Money remains available if digital payment Bitcoin Storm systems fall, for example. „Money is a widely accessible legal tender currency,“ she said. The country can lose some of these aspects if it is fully digital with a CBDC.

Bache pondered:

„The question is whether something important will be lost if the money runs out and we don’t introduce the CBDC? Is central bank money crucial to confidence in the monetary system? Could the CBDC provide more than money can offer, in the form of a wider range of use and more innovation? „

Bache also addressed a number of other points to be considered when launching a CBDC by Norway. „The prospect of introducing a CBDC is still a bit distant,“ she said, adding:

„The lack of urgency reflects our view so far that there is no acute need to introduce a CBDC. The introduction of a CBDC can have considerable consequences in several areas. Our decision must be well informed“.

As far as progress is concerned, the central bank of Norway is still studying CBDCs. The Brazilian Minister of Economy confirmed the country’s search for a CBDC yesterday.

Chinese state cryptocurrency gives US secret service boss a cold sweat

The USA tremble in front of China? – China continues its tests on its MNBC. For its part, the United States does not view this development very favorably. The American intelligence services cannot stand still.

ISD warns against Chinese crypto

According to information relayed by the Washington Examiner , the Director of National Intelligence (DSI), John Ratcliffe , sent an alarming letter to the SEC regarding the advancement of the Chinese state cryptocurrency .

According to him, private American companies will find it very difficult to compete with the future cryptocurrency.

Worse yet: it could eclipse the dollar internationally, which would have serious repercussions on the US monopoly

Surprisingly to say the least, John Ratcliffe also evokes his concerns about the centralization of Crowd Millionaire mining in China . He fears in particular a nationalization of mining in China, which could potentially place this major opponent in an enviable position.

“There are serious national security concerns regarding China’s control over bitcoin and ether. (…) Is the United States really ready to allow China to win this new technological and economic cold war and, with it, the possibility of dictating important parts of a new global payment system? „

Bitcoin price reaches new peak at $16,700, traders have higher expectations

The price of Bitcoin reached a new 2020 peak at USD 16,765, and traders expect a much greater rebound to occur in the short term.

The price of Bitcoin (BTC) reached a new annual peak of USD 16,717 at Binance. After the breakout, traders expect a greater rally in the short term.

There are several reasons why analysts expect a prolonged uptrend. First, Bitcoin broke cleanly above USD 16,000, eliminating the USD 16,473 peak reached on November 13. Second, a „sell-side crisis“ is brewing as more BTC is being accumulated than is being mined. Thirdly, BTC rebounded despite indicators showing signs of overbuying.

Leading Analysts Wrong About Bitcoin Correction

Earlier today, John Bollinger, a veteran trader and creator of the Bollinger Bands indicator, said he was wrong about a Bitcoin correction.

On November 10, Bollinger said that Bitcoin is showing a „short-term ceiling pattern. At the time, Bollinger wasn’t sure if this would lead to a correction or consolidation, but he said he expected the market to cool off.

Several analysts expected Bitcoin to collapse, especially as it approaches the weekly candle’s close. However, BTC steadily recovered, seeing increasing momentum. Bolinger said:

„It seems I was wrong about the possibility of a correction, all we got was a little bit of consolidation and then a return to racing. Discontinuous configurations like this are signs of strength, so currently the path of least resistance is upward. #BTC“

Bloomberg analyst: $1 trillion market capitalization is the „next big thing“ for Bitcoin

Derivative traders have also pointed out that the decline in Bitcoin supply is leading to a crisis on the sales side. This trend could be causing BTC to recover even as it tests major support levels.

One futures and options trader known as „Light“ said that about 3,000 BTCs have been withdrawn daily since BTC reached USD 10,000. This trend shows that demand for Bitcoin is high and miners are refusing to sell BTC, which is optimistic for BTC. The trader said:

„Now at USD 16,600 from USD 11,000. Since the break of USD 10,000, net BTC has been withdrawn ~3,000 DAILY from the main centralized BTC exchanges… The miners refuse to sell their recently halved bounties on demand and are comfortably above balance.

BTC price reacts positively to today’s vaccine advance

On November 12, when Pfizer announced a highly effective coronavirus vaccine, the price of Bitcoin plummeted by almost 3% in a few hours.

This time, after the long-awaited publication of the results of the Moderna vaccine, Bitcoin has actually increased by almost 5%. In the same period, gold has struggled, gaining just 0.17%.

Bitcoin bets on decentralization and immutability instead of payments, says Fidelity

But, traders say that if Bitcoin falls as it did on November 12, then it would present an opportunity to „buy the fall“. A popular crypto currency trader known as Hsaka said:

„The last time we heard about vaccines, $BTC followed the stonks in the initial upturn, but eventually succumbed to the drip of gold. Probably a fall worth buying if history repeats itself and opportunity presents itself.

The combination of technical momentum, a crisis on the selling side and the momentum of the rally is keeping BTC stable above USD 16,000. Considering that BTC has not collapsed quickly after its boom, there is a strong argument that USD 16,000 is becoming a reliable support area.

Ilość BTC Grayscale Manage’ów jest o wiele większa.

Cena Bitcoin’a nie jest jedyną rzeczą, która zwiększa się w przestrzeni kryptokurrency. Według doniesień, instytucjonalna obecność w przestrzeni również się powiększa. Grayscale Investments, usługa zarządzania kryptotekami, która obsługuje rachunki głównie dla inwestorów instytucjonalnych, ogłosiła niedawno, że nadzorowane przez nią aktywa cyfrowe wzrosły o 300 milionów dolarów w ciągu jednego dnia.

Grayscale Sees Its Assets Expand

Prezes firmy, Barry Silbert, wyraził tę informację na tweetrze, twierdząc, że z dniem 22 października nastąpił wzrost całkowitej wartości aktywów kryptograficznych pod płaszczykiem zarządu Grayscale do około 7,3 mld dolarów, co jest nowym rekordem dla firmy. Ponadto, Grayscale Bitcoin Trust widział prawie czteroprocentowy wzrost całkowitych aktywów, co przyniosło kwotę Bitcoin pod zarządem firmy do nieco ponad 6 miliardów dolarów.

Rok 2020 był rokiem dla instytucji, i to jest niezwykła wiadomość, biorąc pod uwagę, jak chwiejny był to rok pod wieloma względami. Na przykład pandemia koronaawirusowa obniżyła cenę Bitcoinu z około 10 000 dolarów (początkowo trafił na pięciocyfrowe terytorium w połowie lutego) do nieco poniżej 4000 dolarów w marcu. Oznacza to stratę około 6 000 dolarów w ciągu zaledwie kilku tygodni.

Wygląda na to, że w końcu na dobre wyłączyłoby to instytucje z BitQT, biorąc pod uwagę, że zmienność, o której wszyscy mówili od lat, pokazała się w swojej największej dotychczas formie. Jednak nie trzeba było długo czekać, aż Bitcoin wyzdrowieje. Cyfrowa waluta numer jeden na świecie pod względem pułapu rynkowego wystrzeliła do około 9.000 dolarów do czasu nadejścia maja, a dwa miesiące później waluta ta po raz kolejny znalazła się poza linią 10.000 dolarów.

To był testament nowej siły i odporności Bitcoina, i być może to właśnie pokaz tej siły pokazał, że instytucjom można ufać. W lecie tego roku ogłoszono, że drugi kwartał dla Grayscale był ogromny, z ilością bitcoin dodanych pod jego usług zarządzania przesuwa się ponad 1 miliard dolarów marki.

Oznacza to, że klienci musieli wpłacać ponad 300 milionów dolarów miesięcznie przez okres trzech miesięcy. Mówiąc wprost, to dużo bitcoin na tak krótki okres czasu.

To był wielki czas dla instytucji.

Stamtąd inne instytucje zaczęły okazywać miłość do bitcoinów, a takie jak MicroStrategy, Square i Stone Ridge kupowały masywne pakiety cyfrowych aktywów. Ponadto, Mode Global Holdings ogłosił, że będzie przekształcać około dziesięciu procent swoich całkowitych aktywów w bitcoin. Teraz, gdy transfer jest zakończony, szacuje się, że firma posiada minimum 1 milion dolarów w BTC.

Chociaż może to być nie tyle, co te ostatnie spółki, można zauważyć, że trend jest podążany. Instytucje zaczynają doceniać Bitcoin jako magazyn wartości, i tak długo, jak to zachowanie trwa, waluta prawdopodobnie nadal będzie się przesuwać w górę drabiny finansowej.

Här är varför Bitcoin kommer att växa i den „största översynen“ av finans

Utvecklingen av centralbankens digitala valutor (CBDC) har blomstrat de senaste åren, där länder som Kina befinner sig i de avancerade stadierna av dess digitala yuan och Japan, Korea och USA i sin forskningsfas för sina respektive fiatvalutor.

Detta utgör dock en oro för inkluderingen av decentraliserade kryptovalutor som Bitcoin och Ethereum i det nuvarande finansiella systemet. Nationstater har ännu inte gjort några starka regler för att anta Bitcoin, men vidtar åtgärder för att rulla ut sina egna centraliserade valutor.

Men enligt en näringsidkare kan CBDC vara den „största översynen“ av den globala finansmarknaden, något som man inte har sett sedan den internationella konferensen Bretton Wood 1944 som satte scenen för all ekonomisk och finansiell politik sedan dess.

  • Han säger också att de är bra för Bitcoin.
  • Ökningen av CBDC

Raoul Pal, före detta Goldman Sachs chef för aktieforskning och för närvarande VD för Real Vision, sa i en tweet på söndag att CBDC oundvikligen kommer tillsammans med massiv stimulans och penningpolitik.

Pal noterade att Mark Carney, tidigare guvernör för Bank of England, tidigare krävde en avvisning av det finansiella systemet och „sätta kursen för ett nytt system.“ Denna punkt, noterade Pal, är centrum för diskussionen (vid sidan av digitala valutor) i en konferens om Internationella valutafonden som planeras till måndag.

I själva verket visade en IMF-undersökning på sociala mediejätten Twitter på söndagen att den nuvarande befolkningen satsar på digitala valutor som ett medel för penningöverföring under de närmaste fem åren. Över 80% av alla respondenter väljer digitala pengar före checkar eller kontanter.

Pal lade till fördelarna med digitala valutor i detta avseende:

”De tillåter centralbanker att kringgå bank- och skattesystemet och ge eller ta pengar (skatt eller överföringar) direkt. Det förändrar helt penning- och finanspolitiken för alltid. Centralbanker kommer nu att kunna hantera finanspolitiken utanför statens balansräkningar. ”

Pal uppgav vidare att „den viktigaste delen här utanför ett helt revolutionerande sätt att samla in skatter, ge incitament och översyn av hela systemet är ett implicit avtal på IMF-nivå att centralbanker kan köra obegränsade balansräkningar om de kombinerar krafter.“

Han tillade också att flytten från dollarn mot en korg med valutor (idén som Facebook föreslagit i Vågen, ”leder till att enskilda länder inte straffas via valutor.

Bitcoin grundad för uppåtriktad

Med alla ovanstående punkter i åtanke uppgav Pal att Bitcoin och guld kommer att fungera som en lösning för att kringgå systemet med allt lägre värde. „Det skapar också incitamentsystem för andra nationer att välja ett hårt valutasystem för att locka till sig kapital“, noterade han.

”Just nu är den positiva effekten på Bitcoin och guld extraordinär. Reglering globalt öppnar upp för acceptans. ”

Under tiden sade Pal att „Bitcoin är skydd“ och är redo för spektakulär tillväxt i en osäker tid.

Han avslutade, „Jag är #ansvarigt lång och det verkar mer och mer ansvarsfullt för dagen.“

The central banks‘ CBDC ideal

In a new report, seven members of the BIS investigate which properties a CBDC should have in order to combine the advantages of a digital currency with the common goal of maintaining financial market stability.

The Bank for International Settlements (BIS) is an association of central banks from 62 jurisdictions. Its members include the Deutsche Bundesbank, the European Central Bank (ECB), the Chinese Volksbank and the US Federal Reserve System. Also known as the “central bank of the central banks”, the aim of the BIS is to coordinate the monetary policy of its member banks. Central Bank Digital Currencies – in short: CBDC – are among the topics that have been of concern to international central bankers, at least since the Chinese central bank went it alone.

How does a „CBDC“ have to be designed?

The authors of the report published on Friday October 9th – in addition to the ECB, the central banks of England, Sweden, Japan, Canada, Switzerland and the USA – first shed light on three principles that are essential when creating or issuing a CBDC pay attention to.

First and foremost is the principle that a CBDC should not negatively affect the core business of a central bank, which is to guarantee a stable financial market. Instead of competing with a national currency, a CBDC should complement or support this. This should be guaranteed, for example, by a fixed exchange rate of 1: 1 to the respective fiat currency.

This goes hand in hand with the second principle that the authors of the report want to see implemented at a CBDC: the coexistence of different forms of money. The introduction of a CBDC should not mark the end of cash. CBDC, cash and book money should exist in parallel and the central banks should continue to produce cash “as long as there is demand”.

As the third cornerstone, the ECB and Co. outline the topic of “innovation and efficiency”. In it, the authors describe the necessity of a CBDC in view of the growing number of alternative payment options that consumers are facing. If not explicitly mentioned, it can be assumed that the authors had Facebook’s planned stable coin Libra and cryptocurrencies in mind when they write:

Without continued innovation and competition to make a jurisdiction’s payment system more efficient, users can use other, less secure instruments or currencies. Ultimately, this could lead to damage to the economy and consumers, potentially affecting monetary and financial stability.

Libra’s wake-up call reverberates in the BIS to this day

Fears that can be heard from the BIS and its members since 2018, when Facebook presented its ambitious stable coin project. A “wake-up call” for the central banks, so the much-quoted reaction of the ECB board member at the time, Benoît Cœuré. Since this year he has been head of the “Innovation Hub” at the BIZ.

The thesis that the advance from the private sector in the form of Libra was needed for the central banks to seriously deal with the development of purely digital national currencies is supported by a graphic from the BIS report. This shows a significant increase in CBDC research at central banks in 2018. So far, however, very few have got beyond theory and have launched a pilot.

Characteristics of a „good“ CBDC

The report describesfurther 14 core properties that a digital national currency must meet in order to do justice to the principles described above. For example, there should be no or only low costs for the end user when using a CBDC; this also applies to any hardware acquisition costs. Acceptance and availability should also be ensured as far as possible. A CBDC should ideally be able to be used anywhere that cash is also accepted. This also includes the option of performing offline transactions.

In addition, a CBDC should be immune from both cyber attacks and external influences such as environmental disasters.

Celebridade musical Murda Beatz agarra bitcoin, possivelmente impulsionado pelos tweets de Pomp

O produtor musical, DJ e compositor vencedor do Grammy, Murda Beatz tweetou que agora é dono do Bitcoin; pode ser resultado dos tweets de Anthony Pompliano

Celebridade musical Murda Beatz agarra bitcoin, possivelmente impulsionado pelos tweets de Pomp

Murda Beatz (cujo nome verdadeiro é Shane Lee Lindstrom) anunciou no Twitter que adquiriu Bitcoin Future, tornando-se assim mais um milenar provando a regra sobre sua geração preferindo criptomoedas como ferramentas de investimento.

Murda Beatz entra em Bitcoin

Hoje cedo, a estrela da indústria musical canadense Murda Beatz tweetou que ele colocou as mãos em algum Bitcoin, se tornando outra estrela da música na comunidade criptográfica. Ele nasceu em 1996, tornando-o com 26 anos.

Em seu tweet, Murda Beatz marcou o renomado advogado do Bitcoin e especialista em finanças Anthony Pompliano, o que pode significar que o produtor foi impactado pelos constantes tweets de Pomp sobre a criptomoeda carro-chefe e seu popular podcast.

A comunidade criptografada deu a Beatz uma recepção calorosa no tópico de comentários abaixo de seu tweet

O bilionário Chamath Palihapitiya compartilha sua opinião sobre a mineração de bitcoins e asteróides
Não é o primeiro portador de criptografia da indústria da música

Há alguns anos, outras celebridades da música também demonstraram interesse em criptomoedas – o Monero em particular. Em 2017, algumas celebridades aceitaram o XMR para seus álbuns e mercadorias durante a temporada de férias.

Entre eles estavam Morrissey, Marilyn Manson, Alice Cooper, Motorhead, Roger Waters, Slayer, Bush, Scorpions e outros.


Bill Barhydt, que é o CEO da Abra depois de trabalhar para a NASA, a CIA e a Goldman Sachs, está procurando aumentar sua exposição ao Bitcoin em meio às atuais tendências macroeconômicas.


O chefe executivo da indústria anunciou em 2 de setembro que está „considerando dobrar a alocação de #Bitcoin na minha carteira pessoal para 25%“.

Quanto ao porquê ele acha que esta é uma boa idéia, Barhydt explicou que „Dada a aceleração da inflação da moeda e a provável inflação de preços a seguir isto parece ter um peso melhor do que os meus atuais 12%“.

Ele acrescentou que os contatos com que ele falou sugerem que os retornos para outros mercados como o de ações provavelmente serão „silenciados nos próximos cinco anos“. Isto deve impulsionar a demanda por ativos alternativos que possam ser capazes de gerar retornos saudáveis, como ouro e bitcoin, que podem ter um forte potencial de retorno, apesar de não serem compreendidos amplamente.


O Barhydt é um dos muitos no espaço criptográfico que tem forte exposição ao Bitcoin, pelo menos em termos do que os investidores tradicionais pensam ser „seguro“.

Raoul Pal, CEO da Real Vision e ex-chefe de vendas de hedge funds na Goldman Sachs, disse recentemente no Twitter e em um podcast que ele tem mais de 50% de seu patrimônio líquido na Bitcoin. Ele disse mais especificamente que, atualmente, é de 52%.

Pal disse em muitas ocasiões nos últimos meses que o ambiente macro está pronto para levar a Bitcoin dramaticamente para o lado positivo:

„A maioria das pessoas não entende este último, mas é simplesmente colocado, Powell mostrou que existe tolerância ZERO para a deflação, então eles farão QUALQUER coisa para pará-lo, e isso é bom para os dois ativos mais difíceis – Ouro e Bitcoin. A inflação da Powell WANTS. Não acho que ele receba a verdadeira demanda empurra a inflação, mas ele receberá a desvalorização do fiat, em conjunto com os outros bancos centrais, todos na mesma missão“.

Recentemente, ele chegou ao ponto de dizer que todas as outras operações em comparação com o Bitcoin podem ser „inferiores“.

Anthony Pompliano, sócio da Morgan Creek Digital, também tem 50% de seu patrimônio líquido em Bitcoin. Kevin O’Leary, o empresário canadense, chamou este movimento de tolo.

$30 Mio. MakerDAO-„Schwarzer Donnerstag“-Klage

$30 Mio. MakerDAO-„Schwarzer Donnerstag“-Klage an Schiedsgericht geschickt

Eine Sammelklage, in der MakerDAO beschuldigt wird, die Risiken im Zusammenhang mit seiner DAI-Stallmünze falsch dargestellt zu haben, wurde bis zum Abschluss eines Schiedsverfahrens ausgesetzt.

Ein Gericht hat sich mit der Maker Ecosystem Growth Foundation darauf geeinigt, dass eine Sammelklage laut der Krypto Plattform Bitcoin Circuit wegen der Kernschmelze des „Schwarzen Donnerstags“ in ein Schiedsgerichtsverfahren eintreten soll.

Die Maker Foundation reichte diesen Antrag ein, um ein Schiedsverfahren zu erzwingen als Antwort auf eine Klage, die der MakerDAO-Nutzer Peter Johnson im April eingereicht hatte, nachdem er durch die Unterbesicherung des Protokolls im März sechsstellige Verluste erlitten hatte.

In einem Beschluss vom 25. September befand Richterin Maxine Chesney, dass die American Arbitration Association feststellen muss, ob Johnsons Ansprüche in den Anwendungsbereich einer Schiedsklausel fallen, die in den DAI-Dienstbedingungen enthalten ist und der Investor 2018 zugestimmt hat.

Schiedsgerichtsklausel in den DAI-Dienstbedingungen von 2018: CourtListener

Maker argumentierte, dass Johnson gegen die Bedingungen verstoße, denen er zugestimmt habe:

„Mit der Erhebung dieser vermeintlichen Sammelklage ignoriert der Kläger sein Versprechen, seine Ansprüche durch ein Schiedsverfahren zu verfolgen, und versäumt es, die Schiedsvereinbarung zu erwähnen, der er zustimmend zugestimmt hat.

Das Gericht wies Johsons Gegenargument zurück, das Makers „Berufung auf eine Vereinbarung von 2018 für ein veraltetes, jetzt aufgegebenes Produkt“ als opportunistischen Trick beschrieb, um einen Rechtsstreit zu umgehen.

Der Fall wurde bis zum Abschluss des Schiedsgerichtsverfahrens ausgesetzt, so dass die für den 2. Oktober anberaumte Anhörung nicht stattfinden kann.

Das MakerDAO-Protokoll erlaubt es den Nutzern, die stabile Münze DAO gegen Ether (ETH)-Einlagen mit einer Marge von bis zu 75% zu prägen, und legt einen Liquidationspreis fest, um sicherzustellen, dass die durch das Protokoll gehaltenen Sicherheiten die ausstehende Lieferung des DAI übersteigen.

Als der Preis der ETH Mitte März in weniger als zwei Tagen um mehr als 50% fiel, sahen sich Hunderte von MakerDAO-Benutzern mit einer Gesamtliquidation konfrontiert, da das Protokoll unterbesichert wurde.

Johnson reichte die Klage am 14. April 2020 ein und behauptete, die Leistungsbedingungen des DAI hätten absichtlich die Struktur des MakerDAO-Protokolls falsch dargestellt, um die mit der Verwendung des Protokolls verbundenen Risiken herunterzuspielen. Mit der Klage werden fast 30 Millionen Dollar Schadenersatz gefordert.

Johnson behauptete, dass er mehr als 200.000 Dollar im Wert von mehr als 200.000 Dollar an der ETH bei Bitcoin Circuit inmitten des scharfen Absturzes Mitte März verloren habe, bei dem sein 1.713,7 Ether als Kollateral für jeweils 121 Dollar liquidiert wurde, wobei er argumentierte, dass die Bedingungen des MakerDAO-Protokolls darauf hindeuteten, dass bei einer Liquidation nur Verluste von 13% entstehen würden:

„Die Maker Foundation und andere Benutzeroberflächen von Drittanbietern informierten die Benutzer, dass aufgrund der Tatsache, dass ihre CDPs deutlich überbesichert sein würden, bei einer Liquidation nur eine Liquidationsstrafe von 13 [Prozent] auf die verbleibenden Sicherheiten erhoben würde, wonach die verbleibenden Sicherheiten an den Benutzer zurückgegeben würden.

Am 22. September stimmte die dezentralisierte Leitung von MakerDAO gegen Vorschläge, die Nutzer des Protokolls, die am Schwarzen Donnerstag Verluste erlitten hatten, zu entschädigen.
