Der Ether Fund von 3iQ beginnt nach dem Meilenstein von 1 Mrd. USD des Bitcoin Fund mit dem CAD-Handel an der TSX

Der kanadische Investmentfondsmanager 3iQ ist heute in den Nachrichten, nachdem bekannt gegeben wurde, dass sein Ether-basierter Fonds The Ether Fund (TSX: QETH.UN) jetzt in kanadischen Dollar an der Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX) notiert ist.

Die fragliche Entwicklung ist darauf zurückzuführen, dass The Ether Fund nach dem erfolgreichen Börsengang des Fonds an der Toronto Stock Exchange eine überwältigende Nachfrage von Anlegern erhalten hat.

Es wurde von Fred Pye, Vorsitzender von 3iQ, begrüßt, der sagte:

„Schließlich haben kanadische Investoren die Möglichkeit, den Ether Fund in ihrer Heimatwährung und über ihre lokal dominierten Konten zu handeln.“

Laut einem Bericht von 3iQ weist der Fonds eine Allokation von 99,9% auf den digitalen Vermögenswert und nur eine Allokation von 0,01% auf den USD auf, was den Anlegern ein beträchtliches Engagement in der ETH ermöglicht.

Die meisten Anleger sehen in diesem Fonds eine geeignete Alternative zu Direktinvestitionen in die ETH, da ihr langfristiger Kapitalzuwachs über die in Kanada registrierten Konten RRSP und RRIF realisiert werden kann.

Diese Art des regulierten Engagements in einer anderen Art von Anlageklasse an einer großen Börse bietet Finanzberatern und -instituten die Möglichkeit, Allokationen in Kryptowährungen vorzunehmen.

Ethereum [ETH] ist nach Marktkapitalisierung die zweitgrößte Kryptowährung der Welt. Der Altcoin-Handel lag zum Zeitpunkt des Schreibens bei rund 1.200 USD

Während die ETH noch weit davon entfernt war, ihren ATH von 1.448 US-Dollar zu überschreiten, deuteten Kennzahlen in der Kette darauf hin, dass die Altmünze bald auf dem Weg sein könnte.

Tatsächlich waren die langfristigen Preisvorhersagen für den digitalen Vermögenswert äußerst optimistisch, wobei der Global Macro-Investor Raoul Pal einer derjenigen war, die solche Vorhersagen getroffen haben. Laut Pal, basierend auf dem Metcalfe-Gesetz, könnte die ETH ein neues Allzeithoch nahe der 20.000-Dollar-Marke erreichen.

Es sollte auch beachtet werden, dass 3iQ der erste von der Ontario Securities Commission (OSC) genehmigte Investmentmanager war, der als IFM / PM für mehrere Krypto-Assets in Kanada fungierte.

In ähnlichen Nachrichten hat der 3iQs Bitcoin Fund gestern ein verwaltetes Vermögen von 1 Milliarde US-Dollar (AUM) überschritten .

Eksperter: Gullutstrømning skyver Bitcoin høyere

Gulls muligheter ser ut til å bli svake som Bitcoins glitter

Ifølge flere eksperter er en mulig årsak til Bitcoins bemerkelsesverdige nylige prisstigning massive investorutstrømninger fra en annen populær inflasjonssikring: gull

Spotgull svunet i løpet av den siste uken og falt 4,62% ​​til 1,857 dollar. Eiendelen hadde tidligere steget i harmoni med Bitcoin, som er opp over 40% fra $ 28.000 lavt forrige uke .

I en Tweet på fredag ​​sa Charlie Morris, grunnlegger og CIO i ByteTree Asset Management, at tilbaketrekningen i gull kan tilskrives investorer som flytter til Bitcoin:

På samme måte, tidligere på uken, sa CNBCs Mad Money-vert Jim Cramer at utstrømmingene fra gull-ETFer „alt kommer til å krypto.“

Sporing av tilstrømning og utstrømning fra Grayscales Bitcoin-investeringstillit og gull-ETF-er gir tilbake denne påstanden, da Grayscale har formørket gull:

Flyttene kan være et tegn på Bitcoins økende status som en legitim aktivaklasse. Gull og Bitcoin har lenge vært knyttet sammen, ettersom begge blir sett på som en måte å beskytte rikdom mot inflasjon og makroøkonomisk usikkerhet, men hvis prisbevegelsene i løpet av den siste uken er noen indikasjon, kan Bitcoin imidlertid vinne det narrative løpet.

I et intervju med Bloomberg sa Coinshares inntektssjef Frank Spiteri at fortellingen om Bitcoin som en inflasjonshekk får ben „i møte med et svært ukonvensjonelt pengepolitisk miljø.“

Bittrex announces a withdrawal of four coins

Bittrex announces a withdrawal of four coins for January 15th.

  • Bittrex will remove ZCash, Monero, Grin and Dash on January 15th.
  • These are four pieces of privacy.
  • Governments increasingly saw privacy rooms as a threat in 2020.

The Bittrex Cryptonics Exchange announced an imminent delisting of four Crypto Engine coins from its listing, effective 15 January.

As privacy coins, the four tokens fall into a category that is increasingly under threat from governments around the world.

Happy New Year?

On 1 January, the Bittrex Cryptomatch Exchange tweeted that as of 15 January, Monero, Dash, ZCash and Grin would be removed from its list. These four are privacy tokens, which anonymise transactions.

We will be removing the following pieces from Bittrex Global: Monero, Dash, Zcash and Grin. Trading will be suspended on January 15, 2021 at 23:00 UTC.

Confidentiality documents, as their name suggests, are relatively difficult for interviewers to follow. Their use is increasing and some exhibits have been in the regulators‘ sights for some time.

In November, Bittrex announced the withdrawal of 23 coins for a variety of performance or regulatory issues. The exchange also identified Grin at that time as a possible target for a future delisting. Readers should note that Bittrex also mentioned MEME and VRC for a possible delisting.

Bonus Programme

In September 2020, the U.S. government offered up to $1.25 million to teams that could decipher Monero or Lightning Network encryption. The announcement carried a sense of urgency, as tight deadlines were built into the rules. Monero seems to be particularly problematic on the regulators‘ side. The call for proposals stated that a Lightning Network monitoring tool on Bitcoin already existed. However, tools for Lightning on Litecoin and Ethereum were needed.

Europe is concerned

In October, EUROPOL, the EU’s unified police body, published the Internet Organised Crime Threat Assessment (IOCTA) for 2020. Among the main threats are privacy pieces. The mix of services and anonymity is changing, the report notes. Moreover, crypto crime is rapidly adapting to the changing landscape.
Encryption of communications

Governments have focused their attention on more than privacy pieces in 2020. They have also turned to encrypted communication and seen it as a threat. The European Union highlighted this in early November. The EU Council of Ministers has issued a proposal for a resolution banning end-to-end encryption of communications. This proposal concerned in particular What’s App and Signal.

Although the proposal is not binding, it shows where the EU is heading in terms of confidentiality. The authors of the proposed resolution stress the need to balance individual privacy concerns with the fight against crime.

A decentralised bypass solution?

As regulation tightens around the current generation of privacy pieces and end-to-end encryption, new privacy-oriented technologies will emerge. Both Dust, which is supported by Mark Cuban, and Status are decentralised communication applications. Blockchain and decentralisation have changed the flow of money and information; these applications intend to do the same for communications.
