eGirls in the C-Suite: el ‘simposium’ que asalta el capital de riesgo criptográfico

¿Qué obtienes cuando cruzas un gato, un Pokémon y un guerrero de la Edad de Hierro? ¡Un fondo de capital riesgo, por supuesto!

Uno de los acertijos más difíciles de las criptomonedas es averiguar qué tomar en serio

El viernes, DeFi Alliance, una incubadora y aceleradora de startups de finanzas descentralizadas, anunció una lista de 11 nuevos miembros. Algunos eran predecibles, como el proveedor de Oracle Chainlink y el incondicional de VC Blockchain Capital, pero un nombre se destacó en particular: eGirl Capital, la amenaza de las redes sociales y el equipo de capital de riesgo advenedizo inspirado en una subcultura de Internet con cuernos .

El anuncio provocó un profundo suspiro en toda la industria y se frotó los ojos:

Los miembros de eGirl, como Degen Spartan , son conocidos tanto por su análisis convincente de los mercados notoriamente complejos de las criptomonedas como por publicar nada más que porno animado durante semanas. Un miembro, quizás uno de los mejores y más brillantes de cryptoTwitter, tiene la personalidad de las redes sociales de un Bitcoin Era, Ditto, que se ha transformado en un sofá para que la gente se siente en ellos sin saberlo. La constelación de piedras de toque meméticas que animan estos diversos fragmentos cómicos es demasiado agotadora para resumir y probablemente valga la pena un estudio antropológico.

Si bien puede ser fácil hacer pasar al grupo como una broma que ha ido demasiado lejos (según ese estándar, el t-rex en Jurassic Park es una mascota que se soltó), eGirl se ha incluido en algunos comunicados de prensa de alto perfil últimamente. . El grupo participó en una ronda de financiación de 4,9 millones de dólares para el protocolo de financiación descentralizada Alchemix , y también anunció inversiones en Radicle y Unisocks. Lanzarán el primer episodio de una serie de podcasts internos la próxima semana.

En cuanto a su financiación, en un documento de preguntas y respuestas, este reportero vislumbró una cifra antes de la decisión de un comité de eliminarla y no ofrecer ningún comentario en un esfuerzo por parecer más “misterioso”; si era precisa, era asombrosamente alta.

Su llegada a la escena de la inversión se produce en medio de un período de profesionalización y adopción institucional de las criptomonedas . Los fondos de cobertura que anteriormente descartaban las criptomonedas como una estafa ahora están configurando mesas de operaciones. Los activos se están volviendo tan aburridos que los fondos de jubilación están asignando dinero en monedas digitales .

Sin embargo, eGirl dejó en claro que están dispuestas (y tal vez ansiosas) a lanzar una bomba de brillo en medio de un asunto cada vez más cerrado. Como lo expresó el especialista en crecimiento comunitario y DAO Pet3rpan:

“La estética egirl / eboy es un gran problema para los ideales tradicionales de la cultura de los últimos 10 años, no nos importa que no seamos geniales”.

Bitcoin Prijs op Berm van Weekend Duikherstel

De gemiddelde transactiekosten van Bitcoin zijn, naarmate de volatiliteit met de dag toeneemt, gestegen tot de hoogste sinds 2018, rond de 13,82 dollar.

De Bitcoin-prijs had zich verder hersteld van de val van het weekend op dinsdag. Met name de activa daalden van het verhandelen van de recordhoogte rond $41.000 tot ongeveer $30.000. Echter, op het moment van schrijven handelde de Bitcoin-prijs rond de $35.000 volgens de statistieken van CoinMarketCap.

Na een sprong van ongeveer 4% in de afgelopen 24 uur, concluderen de meeste analisten dat de Bitcoin-prijsdaling een gezonde marktcorrectie was. Dit is vooral te wijten aan het feit dat de asset een nieuw ondersteuningsniveau heeft gevormd voor toekomstige referentie in het geval dat de marktprijzen zouden dalen. Anderen stellen dat de meeste Bitcoin-eenheden nu onder de controle van langetermijnbeleggers staan nadat ze de dip hebben gekocht.

Het handelsvolume van Bitcoin is gestegen tot een recordhoogte in de meeste beurzen die geleid worden door de beste, waaronder Binance en Coinbase. Nieuwsagentschap Cointelegraph meldde dat het echte handelsvolume van Bitcoin 24 uur per dag ongeveer $22,3 miljard bedraagt volgens crypto-onderzoeksbureau Messari. Ondertussen heeft Crypto Coinbase ongeveer $3,5 miljard aan handelsvolume opgenomen volgens gegevens van crypto analytics provider Skew. Bovendien meldde de beurs een totaal handelsvolume van $9.5 miljard op maandag, zijn all-time high.

De volatiliteit van Bitcoin is in het recente verleden toegenomen doordat meer particuliere en institutionele beleggers naar de markt kwamen. De marktgegevens die CoinGecko heeft verstrekt, geven aan dat het vermogen in de afgelopen 30 dagen met meer dan 86% is gestegen. Bovendien is het actief in de afgelopen veertien dagen met ongeveer 29,5% en 11,4% gestegen.

Omdat de volatiliteit met de dag toeneemt, zijn de gemiddelde transactiekosten van Bitcoin gestegen tot de hoogste sinds 2018, rond de 13,82 dollar. Ondertussen is het hashtarief van Bitcoin op zijn allerhoogste niveau rond 159.162 Ehash/s volgens Bitinfocharts.com.

Is het een herstel van de Bitcoin Prijs?

Naarmate de Bitcoin-prijs verder stijgt vanaf het hoogtepunt van 2017/2018, komen er wereldwijd investeerders en toezichthouders om hun marktperspectief te verleggen. Een opmerkelijke belegger is de miljardair Mark Cuban die tweeted dat de huidige crypto-rally vergelijkbaar is met de internet-aandelenbel van de jaren negentig van de vorige eeuw.

Hij benadrukte echter verder dat Bitcoin, Ethereum en een paar andere crypto-projecten voorbij de zeepbel zullen gedijen, maar dat de meeste zullen mislukken.

Aan de andere kant waarschuwde de Financial Conduct Authority van het Verenigd Koninkrijk de crypto-investeerders dat ze al hun geld in de crypto-industrie konden verliezen. “Aanzienlijke prijsvolatiliteit in crypto-activa, in combinatie met de inherente moeilijkheden om crypto-activa op een betrouwbare manier te waarderen, plaatst de consument in een hoog risico op verliezen”, aldus de toezichthouder.

Bitcoin in the starting blocks: why this crypto bull run is completely different

Is there any doubt that we are in the early stages of a crypto bull run ? Pick a metric, any metric, and the odds are good it will suggest it.

For example, the total value of the capital locked in Bitcoin Up has never been higher. Likewise, the total crypto market cap is hovering in and around its all-time high of $ 1.1 trillion.

Despite numerous crypto newbies popping up on social media, the reality is: retail investors are not here yet. At least not as much as three years ago, during the last bull run.

A look at Google Trends confirms this. The search queries for the keyword “cryptocurrencies” are expected to reach 56 by the end of January 2021. Although this is a bullish sign, it is still far from the values ​​in January 2018.

Keyword “Crypto” on Google Trends, source: trends.google.com

Back then, the ICO craze and the FOMO of private investors, who were often out for a quick buck, drove the market up.

But this time around, it’s institutional investors who are the driving force behind this bull run.

Earlier this year, PwC’s Global Crypto Leader Henri Arslanian said:

“If you look at this bitcoin rally that we’ve seen over the past few weeks and months, there are really two big elements that are driving it. One is the continuous entry of institutional players. But there are also a lot of regulated players. That wasn’t the case a few years ago. ”

Why the institutional interest?

The outbreak of the pandemic turned everything we believed we knew on its head.

Broken supply lines, mass unemployment and fiscal incentives highlighted the fragility of the global economic order.

As difficult and stressful as it is to go through this, the only silver lining is a flight into anti-inflationary assets, particularly Bitcoin. It has benefited from the increasing demand for it as more and more people buy Bitcoin.

The realization that you are sitting on dry land with cash has called the institutional investors on the scene.

MicroStrategy got the ball rolling as the first publicly traded company to hold Bitcoin as part of its treasury strategy. Once one institution “joined the party”, others followed suit.

This is expected to gain momentum through 2021

Aside from the price spike aspect, it’s unclear how that will affect the cryptocurrency industry.

However, the fact that big names like Square, PayPal, and even JP Morgan are on board adds a touch of legitimacy to it all. And that’s one thing that was missing during the last bull run.

EXW-Wallet / Vivaexchange: BaFin warns of unauthorized crypto services

The financial market supervisory authority BaFin has issued a warning against the transactions with cryptocurrencies offered in Germany under the name “Bitcoin Era”.

On January 4, the Federal Financial Supervisory Authority ( BaFin ) published a warning about the crypto trading platform EXW-Wallet , which operates without a license .

Missing BaFin permit

As reported by BaFin, there is a suspicion of “operating unauthorized domestic payment services”. Neither the company VIVAEXCHANGE OÜ, Tallinn, Estonia, nor EXW Global Co. Ltd., Thailand, have been granted a license in accordance with Section 10 of the Payment Services Supervision Act (ZAG) to provide payment services. Both companies are not under the supervision of Crypto Bank as required.

VIVAEXCHANGE OÜ advertises on “the homepage www.exw-wallet.com, among other things, for trading in digital currencies via its trading platform as well as the issuing of credit cards and the implementation of a PoS payment system”.

Since a “Chief Sales Officer” for Germany is also mentioned on the homepage , there is a suspicion of carrying out “unauthorized payment services in Germany”.

BaFin monitors new crypto legislation

The BaFin information campaign on suspected crypto fraudsters or providers operating in Germany without a license from abroad continues. Since the changes to the law passed by the federal government in 2019 , crypto values ​​have been considered a new legal object and financial instrument in Germany, for whose safekeeping a BaFin license is required.

Bitcoin continues to climb – market value exceeds 500 billion US dollars for the first time

Bitcoin jumps above $27,000, almost becoming the tenth largest in the world already.

Bitcoin (BTC) continues to climb unstoppably over the Christmas weekend, surpassing the 27,000 US dollar mark today, December 27. This means that the market capitalization of the cryptocurrency cracks half a trillion US dollars for the first time.

Bitcoin cracks 500 billion US dollars

The new record high comes just three days after the resistance at 24,000 US dollars was overcome. Accordingly, the Bitcoin price has thus doubled in the last two months, with almost 10,000 US dollars made plus in December alone.

Bitcoin’s market capitalization has risen to more than 510 billion US dollars as a result of the recent jump, which already makes the cryptocurrency almost as valuable as the holding company Berkshire Hathaway, which is owned by investment guru Warren Buffett and is the tenth largest company in the world. Yesterday, Bitcoin was already able to leave behind its major “competitor” and payment service provider Visa.

Moreover, at the current price level, Bitcoin Billionaire Review is above the calculated average of the popular Stock-To-Flow (S2F) forecast model, which predicts the price to rise to $100,000 by December 2021. The market-leading cryptocurrency is thus clearly on target on this path.

The current soaring price seems to be far more sustainable than the record run of 2017, because crypto experts assume that it will continue to rise in the coming months. The decisive reasons for this are the continuing interest of institutional investors, strong fundamentals, a declining supply on crypto exchanges and the still low interest of private investors. As can be seen from Google searches for Bitcoin (see below), the hype around the cryptocurrency is still not quite as strong as in 2017 despite new record highs, which is why there is still a lot of room for improvement once the flight to the heights becomes mainstream.

Bithumb Review 2021 – Posto legittimo per acquistare Bitcoin?

Gli scambi non occidentali sono un po ‘un argomento tabù nel mondo delle criptovalute. La caduta del monte giapponese. Gox e le recenti misure di repressione sul trading di criptovalute da parte dei governi cinese, indiano e coreano hanno fatto riflettere l’utente medio due volte prima di fare affari al di fuori degli Stati Uniti / Europa. Tuttavia, molte persone apprezzano la regolamentazione lassista (er) e le commissioni più basse fornite da questi “outsider”, che è ciò che ha reso Bithumb, uno scambio coreano, una delle piattaforme più popolari al mondo per il trading di criptovalute.

Bithumb ha sede a Seoul, in Corea del Sud. Fondata nel 2013, è di proprietà e gestita da una società chiamata BTC Korea.Com Co. Ltd. Il profilo Bloomberg per la società non menziona dirigenti, membri del consiglio o altri dati sulla società.

Questo scambio consente ai suoi utenti di acquistare, vendere e archiviare Bitcoin e una gamma di altre criptovalute

Recentemente ha combattuto una guerra con Upbit per il titolo di scambio di criptovalute numero uno in Corea . I suoi volumi di scambi giornalieri superano quasi regolarmente il valore di un miliardo di dollari, posizionando questo scambio tra i primi 10 scambi mondiali in termini di volume. Recentemente è uscito un rapporto che suggerisce che la quantità di transazioni di 24 ore su Bithumb era pari a 3,48 trilioni di won (3,27 miliardi di dollari) e la cifra ha raggiunto 8,4 trilioni di won (7,89 miliardi di dollari) se combinata con Upbit.

È molto più di qualsiasi altro paese considerando il fatto che le transazioni giornaliere a Hong Kong (che ha due borse nella lista dei primi 10 al mondo) ammontano a 6,3 trilioni di won (5,92 miliardi di dollari) mentre in Cina si sono aggiunti a 3,7 trilioni ha vinto (3,47 miliardi di dollari) .Nel 2017 il Korea Herald ha riferito che Bithumb rappresentava circa il 10% del commercio globale di Bitcoin. Questa percentuale è scesa ora con altre valute che hanno assunto la loro quota di volume commerciale. Tuttavia, Bithumb rimane un attore significativo nel mercato Bitcoin, con volumi di scambi giornalieri di Bitcoin che raggiungono centinaia di milioni di dollari. Lo scambio è regolarmente citato come responsabile di circa la metà del trading di Ethereum della Corea del Sud.

Regolamento

Come con tutte le piattaforme coreane, Bithumb è soggetta a un certo overwatch legale da parte della Commissione per i servizi finanziari della Corea del Sud (FSC), della Commissione per il commercio equo coreano (KFTC), del Servizio fiscale nazionale (IRS coreano) e della polizia. La Corea del Sud sta progettando di fare uno sforzo a livello governativo per rafforzare le normative crittografiche. Durante un’intervista con la stazione radio locale TBS, il vice primo ministro e ministro delle finanze Kim Dong-yeon ha dichiarato: “Il suggerimento di chiudere gli scambi di criptovaluta è ancora un’opzione allo studio”, suscitando nuovamente la controversia sulla chiusura degli scambi.

“Ci sono molte transazioni irragionevoli e speculative in valute digitali, quindi il governo ritiene che siano necessarie normative ragionevoli in qualsiasi forma”, ha affermato Kim. Mentre i principali paesi del mondo, compresa la Corea del Sud, stanno cercando di elaborare una regolamentazione più rigida, i mercati hanno subito una recessione. Tuttavia, una recente testimonianza della SEC e del CFDC americane davanti al senato degli Stati Uniti ha mostrato che il governo americano non vuole chiudere completamente il trading di criptovalute.

Guggenheim Fund-filer for kjøp av 27 700 BTC, 0,15% av Bitcoins totale mynteforsyning

I fotsporene til de legendariske investorene Paul Tudor Jones og Stan Druckenmiller, planlegger Guggenheims Scott Minerd å satse på Bitcoin med en investering på 500 millioner dollar via GBTC.

Guggenheim Partners LLC er den siste som slutter seg til de institusjonelle investorene bullish på Bitcoin og satser på det

Selskapet forbeholder seg retten til et av fondene sine til å investere i Grayscale Bitcoin Trust , som utelukkende er investert i Bitcoin og sporer de ledende prisene på digitale eiendeler minus 2% avgifter.

GBTC handler for tiden rundt 17% premie til BTC-pris , og handler rundt $ 19.500. Innleveringen sa,

“Med unntak av investeringen i GBTC, investerer ikke fondet, direkte eller indirekte, i kryptovaluta.”

Macro Opportunities Fund i Guggenheim på 5,3 milliarder dollar, som tar sikte på total avkastning gjennom renteinntekter og andre gjelds- og aksjepapirer, planlegger å investere nesten 500 millioner dollar i Bitcoin, som vil være rundt 27 700 BTC – 0,15% av den totale pregede forsyningen av digital eiendel. I følge selskapets arkivering til US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) fredag,

“Guggenheim Macro Opportunities Fund kan indirekte søke investeringseksponering mot Bitcoin gjennom å investere opptil 10% av netto aktiva i Grayscale Bitcoin Trust.”

Med denne investeringen vil Guggenheim og Chief Investment Officer Scott Minerd slutte seg til slike som legendariske investorer som Paul Tudor Jones og Stan Druckenmiller . De har lagt pengene sine i flaggskipskryptovalutaen. En kryptoanalytiker bemerket ,

“Forvent at mange fondforvaltere vil følge i PTJ og Druckenmillers fotspor når de avslører BTC-stillinger i løpet av årsslutten av vindusdressing. Karriererisiko for å eie BTC har nå blitt en risiko for ikke å eie BTC. ”

I arkivet beskrev selskapet kryptovalutaer som “digitale eiendeler designet for å fungere som et byttemiddel.”

Det oppførte også et bredt spekter av risikoer, inkludert “svært volatile” priser, handel på “stort sett uregulerte” børser som kan være utsatt for svindel og fiasko, en tillitskrise i det mest omfattende nettverket, og brukerpreferanser å skifte til konkurrerende kryptoer .

Den største kryptovalutaen har hatt et sterkt rally i 2020 og steg til det høyeste nivået på $ 19.500 siden toppen av 2017 bull run. BTC handler rundt $ 18 750, og er bare 8% unna ATH, mens den er opp 160% YTD.

Will the Aave token reach a new record high?

The AAVE token trades between the support at $ 62 and resistance at $ 83.

The price broke a short term descending resistance line.

The AAVE / BTC pair follows a descending resistance line.

Aave (AAVE) price is currently looking to break above the $ 83 resistance zone. If it succeeds, it would push the price up to a new record high.

Although a short term retracement may take place, the Bitcoin Era will likely continue to rise.

Aave is approaching its record high

The AAVE price has been rising from its low at $ 24.66 on November 5. It peaked at $ 84.71 on November 20, narrowly missing its all-time high (ATH) before declining sharply.

That said, this decline only served to validate the $ 62 area as support, knowing that price created a very long upper wick and has been rising since then.

Technical indicators are bullish and support the continuity of the upward movement. If price were to break above the resistance at $ 83, then there would be virtually no resistance to the high of $ 90.83.

Cryptocurrency trader @TradingTank pointed to an AAVE chart, saying the price will soon hit a new high.

While this is a possibility (also supported by technical indicators), price has yet to break above the $ 83 area which is needed for a new all-time high.

Future movement

The shorter term chart for Aave shows that price has breached a descending resistance line. That said, it generated considerable bearish divergences in the RSI like the MACD.

In addition, the price has not retested the passing level of resistance since its advance.

Thus, a short-term decline towards the $ 68 area seems plausible, before a potential resumption of its upward momentum.

AAVE / BTC shows price is following a descending resistance line from its August 23 high.

At the time of writing this analysis, the line coincided with the resistance at 0.0045₿, which makes it all the more important. Passing over this area would likely result in a very steep rally.

Technical indicators are bullish, supporting the possibility of a potential rise above resistance.

Thus, after having moved in a range going from 0.0045 0,00 to 0.0032₿, the price of the AAVE token will probably cross above this resistance line.

Il prezzo Bitcoin aumenta del 9% in 24 ore per raggiungere i 18.000 dollari

Qual è la prossima tappa dell’encierro Bitcoin?

Con l’ultimo movimento al rialzo dei prezzi, il limite di mercato della Bitcoin è ai massimi storici.
Il prezzo della Bitcoin è aumentato di circa il 50% nell’ultimo mese.
L’encierro arriva sulla scia degli investimenti istituzionali di MicroStrategy e Square e delle integrazioni di prodotti con PayPal.

La situazione sta diventando monotona.

Meno di un giorno dopo aver superato i 17.000 dollari di valore, Bitcoin ha raggiunto i 18.000 dollari per la prima volta da dicembre 2017.
Perché il prezzo del Bitcoin è in aumento? Ecco i 5 motivi principali

Il prezzo del Bitcoin è superiore ai 16.000 dollari, avendo sfondato per la prima volta in tre anni. Il suo prezzo attuale di 16.081 dollari rappresenta un aumento di valore del 28% negli ultimi tre mesi.

L’aumento dei prezzi è accompagnato da un nuovo record di capitalizzazione di mercato, che ora supera i 334 miliardi di dollari.

Nelle ultime 24 ore, il prezzo di Bitcoin è salito di valore di un enorme 9% e ora supera i 18.150 dollari.

Il co-fondatore di Nexo, Antoni Trenchev, ha dichiarato: “Alcuni eventi recenti hanno indubbiamente avuto un impatto: investimenti istituzionali come MicroStrategy e Square, PayPal attivamente scellino cripto, e il dimezzamento Bitcoin a maggio, tra gli altri”.

MicroStrategy, una società pubblica guidata da Bitcoin convert Michael Saylor, ha effettuato il suo primo investimento Bitcoin (21.454 per un importo allora di 250 milioni di dollari) all’inizio di agosto, quando BTC era nella fascia degli 11.000 dollari.

All’inizio di ottobre, Jack Dorsey Square, fondata da Jack Dorsey, ha acquistato 4.709 Bitcoin (allora per un valore di 50 milioni di dollari), quando il prezzo era un po’ inferiore agli 11.000 dollari.

Entro il 21 ottobre, Square alternative PayPal si era unita alla mischia, annunciando che avrebbe permesso agli utenti di acquistare Bitcoin sulla sua app. Il prezzo era a quel punto tra i 12.000 dollari, nemmeno un mese fa; da allora non è più sceso al di sotto di quella cifra, fino a 18.000 dollari.

Trenchev ritiene, tuttavia, che questo non sia solo il risultato di eventi recenti, ma di solidi fondamentali a lungo termine. “Vale anche la pena sottolineare che il successo di Bitcoin non è temporaneo: l’ondata HODL di un anno, che rivela quanti investitori detengono BTC per oltre un anno, è ai massimi storici”, ha detto.

Lucas Huang, che è a capo della crescita per il Tokenlon di scambio decentralizzato, ha detto: “Il top è già arrivato? Non possiamo dirlo, ma i nostri utenti sono certamente interessati al prezzo di rally del Bitcoin… Potremmo non aspettare a lungo per vedere [un] Bitcoin di nuovo al top”.

Quel numero, per chi tiene il conto a casa, è di 20.089 dollari, che è successo nel dicembre 2017. Al ritmo che stiamo andando, torneremo a 20.000 dollari entro dicembre 2020.

Concern among Bitcoiners about new mining pool ‘censoring’ BTC transactions

A new mining pool is censoring Bitcoin’s transactions by choosing which ones to include in the blocks produced.

The blockchain analysis platform, BlockSeer, launched the private beta version of a new Bitcoin mining pool (BTC) that censors blacklisted wallet transactions.

The pool will use BlockSeer and Walletscore tagging data among other verified sources, such as the U.S. Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) blacklist for crypto currencies, to identify BTC transactions it does not want to process. The pool also requires all miners to pass Know Your Customer (KYC) protocols. DMG’s director of operations, Sheldon Bennett, stated:

“The pool is focused on being devoid of known nefarious wallet transactions that use this medium in ways that continue to sully the reputation of crypto currencies, specifically Bitcoin, in society, as well as prevent their widespread adoption”
The Grin network suffered a 51% attack, and the GRIN token is still resistant
Former Monero lead developer Riccardo Spagni (@fluffypony) suggested on Twitter that this could be the start of a slippery slope. He speculated that censorship of transactions from Bitcoin’s mining pools may become widespread as a result of regulatory pressure and said the concern was that “regulators who look at this and think it’s a good idea ‘for extreme cases like the OFAC cryptomoney list’, then it becomes enforceable.

“Adding more privacy to Bitcoin would prevent this,” Spagni added:

“Things like p2pool & Stratum v2 make it virtually unenforceable, and I’d rather rely on that than a hope and a prayer.
P2pool is a decentralised Bitcoin mining Bitcoin Machine pool that was established in 2011. Braiins’ draft Stratum V2 is a complete overhaul that implements BetterHash, a secondary protocol that allows the mining pool components to decide the composition of the block they will mine, rather than pools that have control over which transactions to include in each block. This should make pool censorship impossible. According to Braiins co-founder Jan Capek, the draft still needs a formal review, but will receive grants from Square Crypto for further development.

Chain metrics indicate that miners’ influence on Bitcoin price is declining
The founder of the Wallet Scrutiny website, Leo Wandersleb, suggested that the “slippery slope” of censorship “will lead to a soft bifurcation” where pools that follow this approach will reject building “on blocks that do not use their filters”.

In August 2019, Bitcoiner Eric Voskuil predicted that government pools will extract at a loss to censor, while black market pools will reap the black market rates.

Not everyone is convinced that transaction censorship can be enforced without the majority of miners supporting it. BlockTower’s CIO Ari Paul said that even if only one miner fails to comply, there is a possibility of blacklisted transactions, but he added:

“He added: “However, there is a problem: 99% (or 51%) could choose to orphan any block with a blacklisted address, but this requires collusion.
The capitulation of an unknown miner ’caused the fall’, says CryptoQuant’s CEO
Erik Voorhees, believes that the time will come when transaction censorship will pose a serious threat to Bitcoin:

“This is not an imminent problem, but it is coming. Now is the time to prepare for it.
