BTCs seneste fan Ray Dalio oplever tragedie

admin, · Kategorien: Krypto

Bitcoins seneste tilhænger Ray Dalio har i øjeblikket med en hård familietragedie at gøre. Han tog de sociale medier for nylig for at rapportere, at hans søn, Devon Dalio, var blevet dræbt i et bilulykke.

Ray Dalio rapporterer om hans søns død

Den 71-årige milliardær hedgefondschef forklarede på Twitter:

Det er med stor pan, at jeg deler med dig, at min 42-årige søn blev dræbt i et bilulykke i går. Min familie og jeg sørger og behandler og foretrækker at være inkommunikeret indtil videre.

Ulykken opstod i Greenwich, Connecticut om natten den 18. december. Mens få detaljer er tilgængelige på pressetiden, ser det ud til, at Devon var i en Verizon-butik i Riverside Commons indkøbscenter, da et Audi-køretøj ramte ind i virksomheden. Bilen brast derefter i flammer. Butikken er efter sigende blevet stærkt beskadiget.

Greenwich Police Department reagerede på ulykken og nævnte på Twitter:

GPD reagerer på en motorkøretøjsulykke i Thruway Shopping Center ved afkørsel fem. Området, der nærmer sig krydset E put og exit, lukkes og trafikken omdirigeres.

Årsagen til ulykken er endnu ikke afsløret, og heller ikke identiteten på personen bag rattet i bilen. Devons far Ray nævnte på sociale medier:

Vi ved, at den forfærdelige smerte, vi føler, har været og fortsætter med at blive mærket af så mange andre, så vores sympati går ud til dem. Må Gud være med dig og må du værne om dine velsignelser, især på denne tid af året.

Det rapporteres, at Devon Dalio efterlader mange familiemedlemmer, herunder hans forældre, tre brødre, hans kone og datter. Connecticut-guvernør Ned Lamont forklarede for lokale journalister, at hans hjerte gik ud til Dalio og hans kone. I en erklæring sagde han:

Som forældre kan vi ikke forestille os sorg og sorg over deres tab. Vores bønner er med Ray og Barbara, der har været mestre for Connecticuts børn.

Dalio er en af ​​mange mennesker i de sidste par måneder til at ændre deres melodier på Bitcoin Bank. Sidste november var milliardæren ganske kritisk over for verdens største digitale valuta efter markedsdækning og hævdede:

Det er ikke godt som et lager af formue, fordi dets volatilitet er stor og har ringe sammenhæng med priserne på, hvad jeg har brug for at købe … Jeg kan ikke forestille mig, at centralbanker, store institutionelle investorer, virksomheder eller multinationale virksomheder bruger det. Hvis jeg tager fejl af disse ting, vil jeg meget gerne blive rettet.

Ændring af sine tanker om Bitcoin

Bare et par uger senere sammenlignede Dalio dog i sidste ende bitcoin gunstigt med guld og sagde:

Hvad [bitcoin] angår i forhold til guld, har jeg en stærk præference for at holde de ting, som centralbanker vil have og bytte værdi i, når de prøver at handle.

BMW and blockchain project Oasis are working on a new concept for data protection

admin, · Kategorien: Bitcoin

A new method for internal data protection is to be tested in the cooperation between the car manufacturer and the blockchain project.

Oasis Labs, a company closely related to the Oasis blockchain project , has announced that it is working with the BMW Group on a new data protection project

A corresponding announcement on Wednesday shows that the cooperation between the two companies aims to develop a new method for processing data that should clearly define which data can be accessed and how this is done.

BitQT calls this new approach „differentiated data protection“. This is to ensure that larger quantities cannot be manipulated in such a way that individual data can be derived from them. As an example: If both the average value and the number of people observed are known for a data set, conclusions can be drawn about the respective individual when adding another value by changing the average value.

The Oasis solution therefore changes the individual entries in order to make the underlying data record opaque

As the company writes, any database that uses basic math functions like absolute value, random numbers, and natural logarithms can employ the new data protection solution.

As part of the cooperation with BMW, the data protection solution is to be used in-house. Although the collaboration is still in an early phase, it is intended to test the concept of differentiated data protection for the BMW Group’s internal IT system. This would guarantee the greatest possible data protection when exchanging information for both the internal teams and partners of the car manufacturer. However, the project is not based on the Oasis blockchain.

Bitcoin valid alternative to gold

Ray Dalio: Bitcoin valid alternative to gold

Ray Dalio is back to talking about Bitcoin on Reddit, showing flashes of positivity with respect to his latest comments.

In a series of tweets released from his profile over the past few weeks, Ray Dalio asked about Bitcoin and said he might be missing something. In that case, he expressed a number of doubts, including fears that Profit Revolution he might be made illegal when he started to become a competitor of fiat currency.

While not answering a specific question from someone who was asking if he had bought Bitcoin as a result of this tweet, Ray Dalio did address the issue, this time on Reddit.

Ray Dalio prefers gold to Bitcoin

To a user who asked if Bitcoin was the answer to the challenges that the current monetary system has caused, he replied:

„I think that bitcoin (and some other digital currencies) has established itself over the last decade as an interesting alternative to gold, with similarities and differences to gold and other movable assets (unlike real estate) with a limited offer. So it could serve as a diversifier of gold and other such assets“.

Therefore, the skepticism of the past weeks shows an awareness: Bitcoin is an interesting alternative to gold.

Ray Dalio continues:

„The main thing is to have some of these assets (with a limited offer, which are mobile, and which are wealth deposits), including stocks, in your portfolio and diversify between them. There aren’t enough people who do that“.

That said, he prefers gold:

„As for bitcoin over gold, I have a strong preference for keeping things that central banks will want to keep or trade when they try to make transactions“.

In practice, Bitcoin for the founder of Bridgewater Associates is not a good investment at the moment as it is not yet accepted by central banks.

Central banks‘ challenge at Bitcoin

Indeed, central banks seem to fear cryptocurrency, so much so that their response to Bitcoin and stablecoin seems to be the issuance of CBDC (Central Bank Digital Currency). At the moment, Europe and the US are only designing a digital state currency, while China seems to be one step away from release.

Of course, digital state currencies cannot be compared to Bitcoin for a very simple reason: state currencies will be strongly centralized, while Bitcoin is designed to be decentralized (and pseudo-anonymous).

Its use would also be different, since central bank currencies would be nothing more than a digital reproduction of paper money. Their use would therefore only be that of a means of payment, while Bitcoin, as confirmed by Dalius himself, has now become a reserve of value.

More than a million ETH already placed in staking on Ethereum 2.0

admin, · Kategorien: Bitcoin

Less than a week after the launch of ETH 2.0, more than one million ETH has been staked.

These ETHs cannot be used for other purposes or traded until the next phase of ETH 2.0 begins.

The equivalent of over $ 600 million in ETH is currently blocked for staking

ETH 2.0’s main Beacon Chain network launched on December 1. Interest in it is objectively growing, since the total number of ETH staked on the network has exceeded one million.

Just a few weeks ago, some users were concerned that the necessary number of ETH would not reach its required threshold on time, which would have delayed the launch scheduled for December 1.

As the number of ETHs in staking largely exceeds the threshold necessary for the initial launch of the network, it seems that these fears were unfounded. Only a few days after the launch of the network, the number of ETHs has already almost doubled the initial genesis threshold.

There is now over a million ETH (or over $ 600million) in the eth2 deposit agreement

What does this mean for Ethereum?

More ethers will be “staked” and less will be left for until the launch of the next phase of ETH 2.0.

Depending on when the next step of ETH 2.0 is successfully completed, it could be years before these ETHs are available again, which could dry up some of the assets on the sellers side.

ETH Ethereum Dump Mining

Knowing that over a million ETHs were staked on the new network in less than a week, we can expect that number to increase over time as more and more users and organizations will decide to get involved.

This percentage of ETH currently represents less than one percent of the total supply in circulation.

Proof of stake (PoS)

Ethereum 2.0 is a project Vitalik Buterin and the entire Ethereum development team have been working on for years. This is a new version that revolves around a change in the way transactions are verified.

Previously, Ethereum relied on a Proof-of-Work (PoW) transaction verification mechanism, which meant that transaction validation operators, or miners, had to provide electricity and computing power to validate transactions.
