 Ethereum has risen in price by more than 14% in 24 hours

Ethereum price has risen by more than 14%. According to Coinmarketcap data at the time of writing, ETH is worth $1,406. “Ethereum's daily transaction volume is going parabolic. It now settles $12 billion in transactions daily - $3 billion more than Bitcoin, " Ryan Watkins, a researcher at the Messari analytical company, wrote on his Twitter account. The explosive growth of the cryptocurrency rate can be associated with the movements of stablecoins, a significant part of which is based on the Ethereum blockchain.

 Mark Cuban thinks Bitcoin may continue to rise

Billionaire and well-known Bitcoin critic Mark Cuban believes that the first cryptocurrency is able to continue to grow, like stocks in general, amid no increase in interest rates. The entrepreneur urged crypto enthusiasts to monitor the dynamics of interest rates. “All speculation about debt will get real ground if interest rates rise and by how much. That's when we will see how this affects the prices of all assets. Bitcoin is akin to any stock. Its price is determined by supply and demand, ”said the billionaire. In his opinion, the interest of institutional investors contributes to the growth of the BTC rate. About a year ago, Cuban stated that bitcoin "has no chance" to become a reliable currency in the future. "It [Bitcoin] is too difficult to use, too easy to hack, way too easy to lose, too hard to understand, too hard to assess a value," Cuban said in December 2019.

 Over the week, the flow of funds to the cryptocurrency market reached $1.3 billion

The inflow of funds into investment products based on cryptocurrencies last week reached a record $1.31 billion, according to the digital asset management company CoinShares. “We believe investors have been very price conscious this year due to the speed at which prices in bitcoin achieved new highs,” said investment strategist James Butterfill. CoinShares analysts believe that the new high may be related to the recent drop in the price of BTC. It is likely that investors took advantage of the decline in the exchange rate in order to buy cryptocurrency at a profitable price.

 Lloyd Blankfein: BTC prevents authorities from controlling the financial system

According to Lloyd Blankfei, the former CEO of Goldman Sachs, the authorities are obliged to tighten regulation of the cryptocurrency industry due to the rapid growth of this direction. The businessman pointed to the "pseudo-anonymity" of digital assets, which makes bitcoin a convenient tool for financing illegal activities. “You don't know whether or not you're paying the North Koreans or Al Qaeda or the Revolutionary Guard. If I were a regulator, I would be kind of hyperventilating at the success of it at the moment and I'd be arming myself to deal with it, ”Blankfein said. In his opinion, the duty of regulators is to limit the freedom that digital coins provide. At the same time, Blankfein doubts that after the tightening of control and, as a result, the loss of anonymity, bitcoin will continue to be in great demand.

 Opinion: Bitcoin will not hold at the $30,000 level

Scott Minerd, chief investment officer of Guggenheim Partners, is confident that the price of the main cryptocurrency will be dropping. In a comment to Bloomberg, he said that he doubted BTC's ability to hold on to the $30,000 mark. “Right now, the reality of the institutional demand that would support a US$35’000 price or even a US$30’000 price is just not there. I don’t think the investor base is big enough and deep enough right now to support this kind of valuation, ” Minerd said. In his opinion, BTC will remain a viable asset in the long term, but in the near future, the pressure on the price of bitcoin may increase.

 Developing country regulators to issue government stablecoins in the coming time

According to BIS (Bank for International Settlements) analysts, regulators from different countries are actively exploring the question of issuing government tokens. Their mass launch will be in developing countries, analysts say. In the third annual BIS survey, in which 65 central banks participated, 86% of those surveyed said they were considering the pros and cons of issuing their own cryptocurrencies. In 2020, this figure was 80%. About 60% of regulators are already experimenting with government digital currencies. “This research is evidenced by the launch of the first real government cryptocurrency in the Bahamas. Others are likely to join this pioneer. Central banks, which together represent a fifth of the world's population, are likely to issue general-purpose government cryptocurrencies in the next three years,” the report said.

 8,000 BTC, which were mined about 10 years ago, belong to Coinbase

Eight batches of 1,000 BTC each, which have been in motion for the first time since 2010, are owned by Coinbase or related companies. This version was published by the Goldfoundinshit Telegram channel. “Yesterday the next, eighth batch of 1,000 BTC, moved, which lay on the wallets broken by 50, has not moved since 2010. I have previously suggested that these bitcoins belong to Coinbase. Now I am absolutely sure of this, ” wrote the author of the channel. According to the results of the on-chain analysis, as before, 1,000 bitcoins were accumulated in tranches of 50 BTC at separate addresses from 20 wallets. “As you can see, first there is a consolidation of 20 wallets of 50 per address – 1,000 BTC then, this 1,000 is scattered in batches of 10 BTC into original ones, let's call them“ pockets ”for withdrawal. The same thing happened during the movement of the previous parties. Sometimes one or two transactions with large amounts of BTC went from a wallet with 1,000 BTC, apparently for some VIP users, ” the author noted.

 The number of active BTC addresses reached 22.3 million in January

During the first month of this year, the number of unique active BTC addresses amounted to 22.3 million. The growth occurred against the background of an increase in the activity of traders and the price of bitcoin, which exceeded the $42,000 mark. “In January, more than 22.3 million unique addresses were active in the network sending or receiving $BTC – the highest monthly number in Bitcoin's history to date,” Glassnode said. According to the company, January became a record for the number of active Bitcoin addresses. The previous record was reached in December 2017. The number of active addresses was 21 million. Since 2017, the number of active BTC addresses has not dropped below 10 million per month.

 Economists criticized the idea of issuing government cryptocurrencies

Economists Peter Bofinger and Thomas Hass believe that government tokens issued as a medium of exchange may not compete with private banks. Experts believe that regulators need to focus on the concept of supranational cryptocurrencies that will become a store of value in the international system. Economists admit that the best type of government cryptocurrency is one that regulators are unlikely to think about for fear of rejecting intermediation. It will be a government-owned cryptocurrency designed not to facilitate payments, but to save the value. “The demand for a store-of-value CBDC would come from firms and large investors with bank deposits of more than €100,000, which would be bailed-in in the case of a bank restructuring. From the user perspective, this demand would depend on the interest rate for such deposits. Central banks could auction store-of-value deposits which would give them a perfect control over their amount,” the researchers noted.

 SEC accused three leaders of the Bitcoiin2Gen crypto project of defrauding investors

The SEC has accused three leaders of the closed crypto project Bitcoiin2Gen of defrauding investors.

The SEC believes that the creator of Bitcoiin2Gen Christian Krstic and the promoter of the project John DeMarr violated securities laws during the ICO, and the company's partner Robin Enos "was engaged in aiding and abetting." The defendants promised to distribute to 460 investors a B2G token, which, according to the SEC, never existed. The scammers promised a “mined” and “traded” digital token.

The Ethereum price has renewed its all-time high, reaching $1,621. Over the course of the day, the crypto coin has risen in price by 5%, and in 7 days - by 26%.

Former head of the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, Brian Brooks said the information about Tesla's investment in BTC is exciting news. Although, the ex-official believes, for those who have not previously invested in cryptocurrency, "it looks somewhat alarming". “That's crazy, right? The way inflation works is the more of asset you have the less valuable it is. That would explain why a lot of institutions want to have bitcoin sitting in their treasury because it's a lot more stable source of value over the long haul, potentially, ” Brooks said.

 Elon Musk speaks out against custodial crypto wallets

Elon Musk believes that it is better for investors not to use the services of crypto wallets, which do not provide their clients with control over private keys. He wrote about this in a Twitter post from the custodian wallet operator FreeWallet, who used Musk's post on Dogecoin to advertise himself. "Your app sucks," wrote the head of Tesla. It turned out that the entrepreneur uses FreeWallet, and his account was automatically blocked by a security algorithm. Musk's account was then unblocked, but the developers of Ledger hardware wallets joined the discussion, taking the opportunity to advertise their decision. "Elon Musk is right, as long as you do not manage your private keys, you do not actually own your cryptocurrency," wrote the representatives of Ledger.

 Glassnode believes that "miners have reduced bitcoin sales, and investors are taking profits"

According to the research company Glassnode, miners have begun to accumulate reserves in bitcoins. Long-term investors, on the other hand, are trying to get rid of their assets in order to lock in profits. The Glassnode report says that in January, miners were actively selling almost all of the mined BTC, however, in February, the volume of sales decreased significantly. This could mean that miners are hoping for an increase in the value of bitcoin. “This suggests that miners have either completed adequate sales to cover costs, or could also mean they see Tesla's vote of confidence as fair reason to keep a strong grip on their treasuries," analysts say.

 Analysts: 5 services store more than 50% of cryptocurrencies that were obtained illegally

 BlackRock with $ 8.7 trillion in assets is interested in bitcoins

Investment company BlackRock, which manages assets totaling $8.7 trillion, is interested in the main crypto coin.

 US authorities accused the creators of Coinseed of defrauding investors for $ 1 million

New York Attorney General Laetitia James has accused the creators of the cryptocurrency investment application Coinseed of fraud. The state prosecutor's office believes that entrepreneurs lured out $1 million from investors through hidden fees and implausible statements. The company also issued a CSD token, which actually "had no functionality" in the Coinseed app. The prosecutor's office intends to bring to justice not only the company, but also two of its top managers. The allegations are centered around the 2017 ICO of Coinseed. Coinseed, according to preliminary data, received about $100,000 through the sale of 200,000 CSD tokens. Also, the prosecutor's office is confident that the company was engaged in operations with cryptocurrencies without registering as a broker-dealer. “Attorney General James seeks to stop Coinseed and the two individual defendants from further operating as unregistered commodities broker-dealers through their mobile application, as well as return investments of Coinseed’s worthless cryptocurrency, the CSD token,” according to a press release from the Attorney General's Office in New -York.

 OKCoin plans to delist Bitcoin Cash and Bitcoin SV

The largest cryptocurrency platform OKCoin has planned to delist Bitcoin Cash and Bitcoin SV. According to the CEO of Hong Fang, new users of OKCoin often come to invest in BTC, but by mistake, they buy BCH or BSV. Among other reasons for the failure of bitcoin forks - a controversial figure of the creator of BSV Craig Wright. The entrepreneur has already stated that it was he who created bitcoin. “This is not an easy decision. We had a choice and there is collateral damage, but we had to stand up for the bigger principle we believe in. On the one hand we feel very strongly about protecting the open-source ethos, but on the other, if we do something about it, that would conflict with our principle of being a neutral platform. We wouldn’t have changed that if it weren’t for Craig Wright posting these threats to the open-source dev community. We think these threats are very destructive to development and Bitcoin as a whole, "- Fang said.

In an interview with CNBC journalist Andrew Ross Sorkin, Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates pointed out that it takes quite a lot of electricity to confirm BTC transactions. However, he stressed “Bitcoin uses more electricity per transaction than any other method known to mankind, and, so, you know, it’s not a bad climate thing. If it’s green electricity and it’s not crowding out other uses, eventually, you know, maybe that’s okay. I don’t see the topic as deeply related even though you might label me a Bitcoin skeptic, ” said the billionaire. In addition, he said that the Gates Foundation is currently developing its own digital currencies. According to the entrepreneur, they will have “ultra-low” transaction fees.

A top manager at Fidelity Investments, analyzing the nature of bitcoin, noted that the demand for this asset continues to grow "exponentially", while the supply remains unchanged. This scenario cannot be applied to gold, the annual production of which has remained roughly the same for a long time.

The warning came amid the growing attention of retail and institutional investors to the cryptocurrency market and to Bitcoin in particular. “The recent dramatic run-up in price of virtual currencies (especially bitcoin) promises the lure of unrealistic returns and has opened the door for con artists and cheats,” said James.

 Messari thinks ETH can get ahead of BTC

Ryan Watkins, senior analyst at analyst firm Messari, believes that ETH could displace BTC from the first place in the ranking of cryptoassets in terms of capitalization. This can happen after the transition to the second version of the Ethereum protocol. “The selling point of Bitcoin over Ethereum as a store of value asset boils down its monetary policy being very predictable and the Bitcoin blockchain being very secure. I think that with the shift to Eth2 and to proof-of-stake, [...] Ethereum may actually potentially be more secure than Bitcoin,” said Watkins. The analyst noted that a "massive and diverse" economy is based on the Ethereum blockchain. The actively developing direction of decentralized applications will attract new users faster than BTC, he is sure.

 Bank of America analyst: buying 1 BTC is "like owning 60 cars"

Bitcoin is useless as a store of value or payment instrument. The only reason to become a holder of BTC is its growing price. This is the opinion of analysts at Bank of America, whose report is called "Little Dirty Secrets of Bitcoin." One of the authors of the report, Francisco Blanch, is confident that BTC cannot be a safe-haven asset due to the fact that it is not tied to inflation and has serious volatility. The analyst pointed out that about 95% of bitcoins are held by the owners of 2.4% of wallets, and this may become an obstacle to the global introduction of the crypto coin. “As such, the main portfolio argument for holding Bitcoin is not diversification, stable returns, or inflation protection, but rather sheer price appreciation, a factor that depends on Bitcoin demand outpacing supply,” said Blanch.

 Anthony Scaramucci: bitcoin will repeat Amazon's success

Anthony Scaramucci, the founder of the SkyBridge Capital hedge fund, is confident that in the long term, the main cryptocurrency will be able to repeat the success of Amazon. According to the entrepreneur, bitcoin volatility will gradually decrease simultaneously with the massive acceptance of this asset by society. “Amazon now, 20 years later, is trading with more stability. It got a very big pop because of the pandemic, but just take a look at its long-term chart, and I think that will happen to bitcoin,” Scaramucci said. The total number of bitcoins is limited to 21 million coins. According to CoinDesk, about 18.66 million coins have already been mined. At the same time, about 15.5 million are in circulation, since access to wallets from 15% to 20% is considered completely lost according to various expert estimates. Cryptocurrency proponents see this as one of the prerequisites for the price of BTC to rise as demand continues to outstrip supply.

 Federal Reserve is confident that CBDC will not replace fiat

The head of the US Federal Reserve System Jerome Powell expressed the opinion that digital currencies of central banks (CBDC) will not become a substitute for conventional money. CBDCs will coexist with them. According to Powell, not only the government, but also the private sector should be engaged in improving the global payment system. “CBDC needs to coexist with cash and other types of money in a flexible and innovative payment system,” said the Federal Reserve Chair. At the same time, experts from the Bank for International Settlements (BIS) conducted their research on the estimated future of global payments and the interaction of different CBDCs. BIS expects countries whose central banks will also start launching their CBDCs to continue to emerge, leading to interoperability issues between different digital currencies. Experts emphasize that CBDC will need to compete with those private stablecoins that already exist. In addition, the researchers announced the possible emergence of a global stablecoin, but whether it will be a digital dollar issued by the US Federal Reserve or another CBDC in BIS is not yet sure.

A new report from the agency talks about the risks of losing funds when investing in digital currencies, for example, in BTC. ESMA believes that some crypto assets are "very risky and speculative."

 Ray Dalio says that the US may ban cryptocurrency

The famous American financier Ray Dalio spoke about the high probability of a ban on bitcoin in the United States. The entrepreneur drew a parallel with the decision of the authorities to confiscate gold from citizens during the Great Depression. “Every country treasures its monopoly on controlling the supply and demand. They [the authorities] don’t want other monies to be operating or competing, because things can get out of control, ”Dalio said. According to the billionaire, the first crypto coin has proven itself excellently since its inception. Bitcoin has quite a few fans, and its blockchain has not been hacked. “It is an alternative, in a sense, store hold of wealth. It’s like digital cash. And those are the pluses,” concluded Dalio.

 President of Microsoft Corp. spoke out against digital assets

IT companies do not need to issue currencies, the authorities should be engaged in this. This point of view is shared by the President of Microsoft Brad Smith. “The money supply almost uniquely needs to be managed by an entity that is responsible to the public and thinks really only about the public interest, and that means governments,” said the top manager of the company. Earlier, Microsoft announced the launch of a decentralized identifier network powered by the BTC blockchain. It was reported that the solution will allow the creation of DIDs and can be used on social networks.
