Bitcoin overtakes Warren Buffett firm Berkshire Hathaway by market capitalization

Bitcoin is getting closer and closer to the $ 30,000 mark and interest in it is growing.

Bitcoin ( BTC ) has recorded the highest transaction volume since the beginning of 2018. Data suggests that more and more investors are entering the market.

Figures from the on-chain analysis resource Digital Assets Data show that the second largest Bitcoin Code transaction volume was reached in December 2020.

BTC transaction volume hits record

The volume stands at $ 252.37 billion and in the final hours of December that number could rise even further.

Other indicators, such as the number of unprocessed transactions in the Bitcoin mempool and network transaction fees , also point to increased activity overall.

As Cointelegraph reported , there are more and more wallets with large and small stocks.

Meanwhile, Google Trends has recorded the highest number of searches worldwide for the term „Bitcoin“ since February 2018.

According to mainstream sources and seasoned crypto traders, the reason for this is because of the bull market that has continued this week . As of press time, Bitcoin was up to $ 29,300.

At $ 539 billion , the largest cryptocurrency surpassed the market cap of financial giant Berkshire Hathaway yesterday. Its CEO Warren Buffett once described Bitcoin as a „rat poison squared“.

Ether: Still very strong development

Despite its 290 percent growth since the beginning of the year, Bitcoin is dwarfed in comparison to the development of the largest altcoin, Ether ( ETH ). As confirmed by Digital Assets Data, the ETH / USD pair has gained nearly 500 percent since January 1st. Compared to the lows in March, the trend is even stronger.

In a series of tweets on Wednesday, Bobby Ong, creator of the price data website Coingecko, made his predictions for the crypto market in 2021. Among the large tokens, Ether is expected to record higher transaction fees again, but surpass its existing all-time high from 2018.

„ETH will break the all-time high of $ 1,500, mainly driven by the DeFi space. Gas charges will skyrocket again, showing problems with scalability,“ he wrote .

„We will spend most of the year coordinating a second tier scalability solution. I believe ZK Rollup will gain traction towards the end of the year.“

For Bitcoin, Ong predicts a price trend in the direction of 100,000 US dollars. In addition, there should also be the introduction of an exchange-traded fund and the first central bank should include Bitcoin in its holdings.

No, il giocatore della NFL Russell Okung non viene pagato in Bitcoin

„Russell Okung dei Panthers diventa il primo giocatore della NFL ad essere pagato in Bitcoin“, ha proclamato il titolo – e presto, quelli come lui hanno iniziato a spuntare sul web, con pubblicazioni sportive, pubblicazioni tecnologiche e media mainstream che saltano per raccontare come il lineman offensivo dei Carolina Panthers ha finalmente soddisfatto il suo desiderio espresso di essere pagato in criptovaluta.

Purtroppo, il titolo non è vero. „Non è vero“, mi dice un portavoce della NFL, aggiungendo che „la sua gente sta convertendo parte del denaro in bitcoin“ dopo che è stato pagato in dollari americani, proprio come ogni altro giocatore della NFL.

PIÙ COME „IL GIOCATORE DELLA NFL DECIDE DI SPENDERE METÀ DEL SUO STIPENDIO IN BITCOIN“.

Anche la squadra di Okung, i Carolina Panthers, ha confermato a The Verge che le squadre pagano i loro giocatori in dollari americani.

Secondo questo standard, chiunque può ottenere il Crypto Cash proprio stipendio „pagato in bitcoin“ quando vuole: basta andare a comprare un po‘ di bitcoin con il proprio stipendio dopo il suo arrivo, che è probabilmente quello che la società che Okung sta pompando – Zap – spera che farai quando vedrai che lo sta reppando online.
Non è chiaro perché Okung abbia scelto questa particolare startup per convertire il suo stipendio (accetta il deposito diretto), o perché abbia twittato quattordici volte questo pomeriggio incoraggiando i suoi seguaci a salire a bordo del treno bitcoin e Zap.

Non rivela alcun tipo di relazione con Zap su Twitter, anche se il fondatore di Zap, Jack Mallers, lo chiama „amico“. (Mallers non ha risposto a ripetute richieste di commenti).

Ma anche se Okung non ha un qualche tipo di accordo con Zap, avrebbe un qualche incentivo finanziario semplicemente essendo un investitore di bitcoin – più la gente si eccita abbastanza per comprare gocce di bitcoin, più alto è il prezzo e più la sua quota vale. (Okung ha convertito la metà del suo stipendio di 13 milioni di dollari in bitcoin, secondo il rapporto Coindesk).

Per generare quel tipo di eccitazione, aiuta avere titoli come „Primo giocatore della NFL ad essere pagato in Bitcoin“ sparsi sul web. Sembra certamente più intrigante di „Il giocatore della NFL decide di spendere il 50 per cento del suo stipendio in Bitcoin“, vero? Sarà interessante vedere se uno di questi titoli cambierà da un giorno all’altro.

Bitcoin’s price breaks R$ 120 thousand and should continue ’strong rise‘, according to Coinext CEO

José Artur bets on the valorization of cryptomoeda and points out that analysts forecasts show that the price of Bitcoin can reach $100 thousand in 2021.

The price of Bitcoin (BTC) broke historical record on Thursday (17), when it was quoted for the first time in the market at $ 120 thousand. According to the CEO of Coinext, José Artur Ribeiro, cryptomoeda should continue a ’strong rise‘ until the end of 2020, and may extend this upward trend until 2021.

In a forecast of Bitcoin Millionaire price in the market, Ribeiro bets that by the end of 2020 cryptomoeda will be quoted above US$ 24 thousand, or a little over R$ 121 thousand.

Bitcoin’s volume of options exceeds US$1 billion for the first time

So, with only two weeks to go, Coinext CEO’s guess crosses 2020 and points out that next year Bitcoin price can reach until US$ 100 thousand in the market, according to analysts forecast.

Bitcoin price will rise

The current scenario of the cryptomoedas market reveals a timely moment of appreciation for the price of Bitcoin. In the last few days cryptomoeda has broken records, not only in reais, but also in US dollars.

Therefore, for the first time in history the price of Bitcoin was quoted above this value, with the historical record being broken in about US$ 20 thousand. Meanwhile, in the BRL/BTC pair, cryptomeda reached R$ 120 thousand.

According to José Artur Ribeiro, the breaking of the resistance in US$ 20 thousand can be considered a „historic milestone for Bitcoin“. In addition, by exceeding this value BTC faces „a totally new terrain“.

„We are in a historic milestone for Bitcoin. Exceeding $20,000, which until then represented a significant resistance, is a totally new terrain for cryptomeda, which could open for a climb in 2021. And this is reflected in reais“.

Forecast for 2021

Soon after breaking US$ 20 thousand in the market recently, this Thursday (17) the price of Bitcoin approached US$ 24 thousand for the first time, at the same time that cryptomeda exceeded R$ 120 thousand in Brazil.

Thus, by the end of the year the price of Bitcoin should remain close to the historical top recorded today, for the CEO of exchange Coinext. In other words, the quotation of cryptomeda can remain around US$ 24 thousand in the market.

„My guess is that it reaches the US$ 24 thousand which was almost reached this Thursday (17), or more. I believe that we are at the beginning of a strong rise“.

On the other hand, when talking about how the price of Bitcoin will perform in 2021, Ribeiro points out that there are some forecasts that expect a price of up to US$ 100 thousand.

In addition, the CEO of Coinext recalls that currently the price of Bitcoin is experiencing a different moment from that of 2017, when cryptomoeda approached US$ 20 thousand for the first time in the market.

„Some analysts predict that Bitcoin will reach US$ 100 thousand in 2021. Unlike December 2017, in the last Bitcoin ATH, we realized that today the exchanges market has become more professional and clients have much more knowledge about investments in cryptoactives“.

Cryptomoedas in Brazil

The adoption of cryptomorphs in Brazil tends to grow in 2021, according to José Artur Ribeiro’s forecast. Coinext’s CEO is betting on market growth in the country, driven by investments in cryptomaps.

On the day Bitcoin’s price broke the record of US$ 20,000, Coinext traded about 100 BTC units on the exchange. Meanwhile, at the OTC counter, in the last 24 hours the platform traded 120 Bitcoins.

„I believe that the Brazilian market will grow considerably in 2021. Brazilians have started to look more at investments, and cryptomoedas have become more and more part of the portfolio“.
