Pizza Hut do przyjmowania Bitcoinów na ciasta w Wenezueli

Sieci fast foodów, takie jak Burger King i Church’s Chicken, przyjmują już kryptońskie płatności w narodzie południowoamerykańskim.

Słynna amerykańska sieć pizzerii zaczęła przyjmować płatności w kryptotece we wszystkich swoich sklepach w Wenezueli.

Zmiana ta jest następstwem współpracy

Według tweeta z 27 listopada od firmy usługowej CryptoBuyer, sklepy Pizza Hut w Ameryce Południowej akceptują obecnie krypto walutę jako formę płatności za jedzenie i napoje. Zmiana ta jest następstwem Bitcoin Rush współpracy z Mega Soft, która doprowadziła do przyjęcia kryptoflady w Wenezueli poprzez ułatwienie płatności za produkty kryptograficzne w ponad 20 000 sklepów i firm.

„Pizza Hut w dzisiejszych czasach nie może być oderwana od tych osiągnięć technologicznych i wszystkich tych, które wprowadzają nowe podejście do codziennych potrzeb“, powiedział Richard ElKhouri, dyrektor generalny wenezuelskiej sieci pizzerii, w wywiadzie dla lokalnego centrum prasowego ElAxioma. „Ważne jest, abyśmy przyjęli młodych ludzi, nowoczesnych dorosłych i ludzi znających się na technologii“.

Korzystając z CryptoBuyer, klienci mogą kupować pizzę w sieci restauracji z Bitcoin (BTC), Litecoin (LTC), Dash (DASH), Binance Coin (BNB), Binance USD (BUSD), Ether (ETH), Tether (USDT), Dai (DAI) i jego rodzimym tokenem XPT. Pizza Hut posiada lokalizacje w stolicy, Caracas, a także w miastach Maracay, Maracaibo i Barquisimeto.

Z siedzibą w Panamie, Cryptobuyer to bramka handlowa dla handlowców kryptokurrency, która obsługuje również bankomaty Bitcoin w całej Ameryce Środkowej i Południowej. Firma otworzyła już popularne firmy obsługujące płatności kryptograficzne, w tym amerykańskie sieci fast foodów, takie jak Burger King, Tamanaco Intercontinental Hotel w Caracas oraz Traki, największą sieć sklepów detalicznych w kraju.

Początki Bitcoin’a idą w parze z amerykańskim daniem zszywkowym, ponieważ pierwszym udokumentowanym zakupem komercyjnym z użyciem kryptokuraniny było zamówienie na dwie pizze. 22 maja 2010 roku programista Laszlo Hanyecz ukończył pierwszy udokumentowany komercyjny zakup Bitcoina, płacąc 10 000 BTC – obecnie wartych około 181 milionów dolarów – za wysłanie mu dwóch ciastek ze sklepu Papa John’s w Stanach Zjednoczonych.

New York Times looks into accusations of racism at Coinbase

Coinbase hiring statistics show that hiring is continually below average in terms of people of color.

Black employees claim to be treated unfairly, individually and systematically.

Does society’s view of corporate social responsibilities encourage unprofessional behavior?

Coinbase founder Brian Armstrong and the company’s “celebrity culture” leave the company exposed to accusations of racism.

Coinbase , the largest U.S. cryptocurrency exchange by volume, was the subject of a Nov. 27 New York Times article on racial issues within the company. The media point to waves of departures of black employees and a still low percentage of hires of people of color.

Coinbase denies en bloc

Coinbase denies that there are systematic racial issues in the business. The company reportedly hired outside consultants and conducted internal investigations into complaints from current and former black employees. However, these reviews could not confirm the allegations.

Coinbase’s hiring records show that black employees consistently make up around three percent of its workforce. Depending on the field chosen in official employment statistics , this represents between half and a third of the sector average. In addition, business expansion had no effect on this percentage. The authors note that other tech companies, such as Square, PayPal, and Twitter, have made efforts to increase the share of black employees in their businesses.

A tormented summer

Systematic racism became a hot topic at Coinbase in early summer 2020. The police murder of George Floyd in Minneapolis, Minnesota sparked months of protests. It has also led to a reexamination of systematic racism in many communities and businesses in the United States.

According to the article, black Coinbase employees were offended by the silence of their own superiors on this issue. After a meeting arranged with company executives, Brian Armstrong said:

There was this outpouring of questions like, „Why doesn’t society cover me?“

After summer comes autumn

The rapprochement process did not last long. A subsequent email mentioned a diversity and inclusion plan, but also an intensification of the tutorial aspect, which goes directly against the company’s ethics of: “What can you bring from the first day? ” In September, however, in a blog post , Brian Armstrong decided to focus on the business and its mission.

The New York Times article focuses on one line in particular from this post: “We don’t engage here when the issues are not related to our primary mission.” According to the article, that single sentence angered many employees.

Coinbase’s vision, broad or narrow?

His September post outlines Brian Armstrong’s vision for the company, its employees, and their relationships with the outside world. In particular, Mr. Armstrong views Coinbase, as argued by its articles and other communications, as a result of a narrowly defined interpretation of the company’s goals and mission as openly stated in its documents.

Voici les facteurs qui ont fait augmenter le plafond du marché des bitcoins de 100 milliards de dollars au cours du mois dernier

La capitalisation boursière de Bitcoin a explosé d’environ 100 000 000 000 000 $ – ou 100 milliards de dollars – au cours des 30 derniers jours seulement.

Ce rallye a pris beaucoup de gens au dépourvu : il y a tout juste deux mois, la BTC était à 9 800 dollars, sur le point de s’effondrer encore, selon certains analystes, alors que la pièce luttait à des niveaux de soutien clés. Bitcoin était également confronté à un certain risque en raison de l’incertitude des élections, ont-ils déclaré.

Mais au moment où cet article est écrit, Bitcoin Trader se négocie bien au-dessus de 16 000 dollars, car le plus grand rallye depuis 2017 a eu lieu.

Lucas Nuzzi, un analyste de Coin Metrics, a récemment expliqué pourquoi il pense que la monnaie est en train de se redresser si loin et si vite.

Qu’est-ce qui a fait passer Bitcoin de 11 000 à 17 000 dollars ?

Lucas Nuzzi a d’abord contesté les rumeurs selon lesquelles Bitcoin serait en train de monter en flèche suite aux mesures de répression contre les investisseurs chinois :

„Plusieurs points de vente ont rapporté que les mineurs chinois n’ont pas pu vendre leur BTC en novembre à cause d’une répression réglementaire. Comme je l’ai déjà dit, il n’y a aucune preuve de cela sur la chaîne. En fait, c’est le contraire qui semble se produire : La CTB détenue par les mineurs est en baisse en novembre“.

C’est à peu près le montant qui a été ajouté au plafond du marché de #Bitcoin au cours du mois dernier.

L’idée était que parce que la Chine avait apparemment ciblé les comptoirs de vente au détail, les plateformes comme OKEx, et bien d’autres moyens de vendre des bitcoins pour des fiats, les mineurs étaient coincés à tenir leurs pièces.

Nuzzi dit que c’est très probablement faux.

Au contraire, il affirme que les acteurs institutionnels font grimper les prix de Bitcoin, comme le montre le fait qu’il n’y a pas eu d’augmentation du nombre de CTB sur les bourses. Les acteurs institutionnels utilisent normalement des bureaux de vente de gré à gré ou des algorithmes, qui peuvent acheter des pièces sur plusieurs bourses, puis les regrouper en une seule adresse à long terme.

„L’absence d’augmentation de la CTB sur les bourses est la preuve que ce rallye est probablement mené par les institutions. L’utilisation par les institutions des rampes d’accès aux marchés de gré à gré se traduit toujours par une action positive sur les prix, mais avec une empreinte limitée sur la chaîne, ce à quoi nous pourrions assister“.

Ari Paul, DSI de BlockTower Capital, a partagé un sentiment similaire.

Commentant ce qui motive le rallye dans un récent fil conducteur, Paul a déclaré :

„Pour la plupart de ce rallye, nous avons vu un schéma clair d’achat de style algorithmique pendant les heures américaines et une activité plate pendant les heures asiatiques. Il s’agit principalement de HNW (high net worth individuals) qui achètent de grandes quantités facilitées par algos (ou via un guichet OTC qui utilise algos)“.

Il a déclaré que, de manière anecdotique, il s’est entretenu avec ces milliardaires, et ils disent soi-disant qu’ils achètent des bitcoins parce qu’ils les considèrent comme une protection contre l’inflation et la dépréciation du système financier traditionnel.

Qui sont les milliardaires ?

Bien que Paul et Nuzzi n’aient pas pu révéler qui sont les milliardaires qui achètent des bitcoins, certains ont annoncé publiquement leur exposition à cet espace.

Par exemple, un milliardaire mexicain d’une valeur de 13 milliards de dollars a récemment placé 10 % de son portefeuille d’investissement dans Bitcoin.

Stanley Druckenmiller, Paul Tudor Jones et Bill Miller sont également des investisseurs de Wall Street qui ont investi des capitaux dans Bitcoin ces dernières semaines.

Experts see institutions as driving force for Bitcoin

Experts see institutions as driving force for Bitcoin – Are the Altcoins following suit?

Two crypto experts see institutional investors as the driving force for the crypto market, which could also carry some Altcoins upwards.

The analysts point to the increased interest of Bitcoin Up financial institutions and listed companies in Bitcoin (BTC) as the driving force behind the current upswing of the crypto currency.

„The main reason for Bitcoin’s steady rise is the increased interest and aggressive buying by institutions,“ notes Nick Cote of the crypto trading platform Hxro Labs. And he continues: „Many of these investors are using Grayscale for this purpose“.

In fact, the Grayscale Bitcoin fund has been very active recently

For example, the asset management company had expanded its Bitcoin fund to more than 500,000 BTC at the beginning of the month. Institutional investors are using this route to avoid having to buy and hold the crypto currency themselves. The purchases of the investment fund thus show that more and more institutions are investing in Bitcoin.

As Cote adds, large companies such as Square and Microstrategy have now also „included Bitcoin on their books as a hedge against the threat of inflation and the poor monetary policy of central banks“. He sees this in turn as a „positive feedback“ for the crypto market:

„There will always be feedback, but as long as the institutions believe in the narrative of Bitcoin as a store of value and a hedge against inflation, there will be positive feedback“.

Nicholas Pelecanos of the crypto project NEM shares this view, because, as he believes, Bitcoin’s fundamentals are stronger now than ever before. He points to the shortage caused by the halving in March, increased institutional interest and „several listed companies that have invested up to 10% of their capital“.

But Pelecanos is not only optimistic about Bitcoin, but also about the „alternative crypto-currencies“ or Altcoins. In particular, he points to their growth potential: „Bitcoin is almost back at its record high, but what is really interesting is that most Altcoins are still 50% behind their record highs“.

However, the expert limits his confidence a bit, as many Altcoins have not yet been properly adopted. So he says:

„Some Altcoins are part of crypto-projects that are no longer running, while others have developed steadily, both technically and in terms of adoption“.

A further boost for the crypto market could come from the crypto-miners, because according to Glassnode CTO Rafael Schultze-Kraft, the miners have accumulated an additional 10,000 BTC since March.

The exchange Blox has received authorisation to operate in the Netherlands

Thanks to this new company, even small Dutch traders will be able to invest in crypto
The BLOX exchange has received the green light to operate in the Netherlands: it is the first platform to receive authorisation since the country implemented the European Union’s fifth anti-money laundering directive (AMLD5).
On 6 November, the company stated in a blog post:
„BLOX is the first crypto company to be included in the Dutch Central Bank’s register. […] This registration is mandatory in the Netherlands for any company that allows its users to buy, sell, trade and hold crypto-currency.“
The crypto trader service provider AMDAX BV also found itself in the spotlight in October as the first company of its kind in the region: AMDAX, however, only targets large investors. In a statement issued in October on Finextra, the company pointed out that
„AMDAX supports both companies and private investors with a portfolio – starting with 2.5 Bitcoin investments – with cryptocurrency trading, secure deposit and insured custody“.
As can be seen on the list of authorised crypto companies, the Anycoin Direct exchange was also registered on 6 November.
A blog post on the company specified:
„BLOX allows consumers to invest in their favourite digital currency from just 1 euro. […] Therefore, the Dutch Central Bank’s approval means that the cryptos will remain widely accessible to the general public“.
Unlike the three companies mentioned above, the Deribit crypto derivatives exchange left the Netherlands in January 2020 to avoid the new regulations.
