Bitcoin surges above $8,000 for the first time in 2 months ahead of a key halving in the crypto markets

Bitcoin surged 11% on Wednesday and crossed $8,000 the first time since early March as analysts said a key deadline that will reduce the amount of units is helping boost prices.
Bitcoin is currently trading around $8,625 as of 12.55 p.m ET.
The last time it was anywhere near this level was in March, before stock markets crashed and when the impact of coronavirus began to spread.
Analysts attributed the rise to "bitcoin halving" that takes place on 12 May.
Danny Scott, co-founder and chief executive of CoinCorner told Markets Insider: "Coming up in 12 days is the bitcoin halving — which in short cuts the supply of bitcoins coming into circulation in half and taking it from 12.5 bitcoins every 10 minutes to 6.25 bitcoins every 10 minutes."
"People are looking at bitcoin's history and seeing how the supply and demand vector has played out for bitcoin in the past, with the price steadily rising after a halving to new all-time highs within 18 months," he added.

What is bitcoin halving?

Bitcoin miners are rewarded a specific amount of bitcoins whenever a block is produced.
Initially when bitcoin was first launched, miners could get 50 bitcoins per block.
After 210,000 blocks are mined, the block reduces by 50% and the process continues until a block becomes worth 0 bitcoins.
The current block reward is 12.5 coins per block, which will fall to 6.25 on May 12.
Dr Garrick Hileman, head of research at Blockchain.com, said: "Bitcoin's price has been climbing of late alongside other traditional hard assets like gold in part due to concerns over the size of the monetary and fiscal response to COVID-19."

Bloomberg: the weakening of RMB increased demand for bitcoin in China

Bloomberg: the weakening of RMB increased demand for bitcoin in China

The inverse correlation of bitcoin and RMB increases over time. This may indicate that the Chinese are increasingly considering BTC as a protective asset, Bloomberg notes.
Peak reverse interconnection was reached in late August.
According to the researcher the London school of Economics and head of the research Department at Blockchain.com Garrick Hileman, this trend became more pronounced in April and May, when the trade confrontation between the US and China gradually gained momentum.
"When the RMB fell, people in Asia were paying more for bitcoin than anyone else. This can be seen at the inflated price of Huobi, which serves mainly Chinese, " he added.
The RMB devaluation is facilitated by a slowdown in the Chinese economy, a trade war with the United States and easing monetary policy.

Crypto Industry is Betting Big on the Future of Stablecoins

Crypto Industry is Betting Big on the Future of Stablecoins

https://preview.redd.it/x3i0kbnavuk21.jpg?width=1000&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=24e5620b93f0895f510c60b25533b14e754754ce
When merchants started introducing bitcoin and similar digital currencies as one of their payment methods, they quickly encountered a significant problem: price volatility.
There were instances like a luxury item dealership, which used to accept bitcoins for their products but saw the value their Ferrari cars jump by almost 33% during a test run. The company, dubbed as The White Company, later joined the popular trend of launching a “stablecoin,” a hybrid of blockchain and fiat money, which promised to protect its balance sheets from subtle influences.

WHAT IS STABLECOIN?

Rather than fluctuating on the whims of traders’ speculation, a stablecoin is a new blockchain-enabled breed that is characteristically pegged to stable real-world assets, from commodities to currencies. For instance, users can purchase one stablecoin for a dollar, and can also redeem it later for the same price, thus eliminating the notorious crypto price swings.
The stablecoin industry became popular in the wake of 2018’s crypto crash. The depression saw the market’s leading cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and Ethereum losing 80-90% of their capitalization within a year. A majority of retail investors, who were holding these volatile crypto assets, decided to exchange them for stablecoins as a part of their risk management strategy. Once the volatility settled, traders were redeeming their stablecoins for digital currencies, as well as fiat currencies to exit the crypto market on minimized losses.

INBOUND INVESTMENTS

Stablecoins are not exciting as speculative assets, mainly because their backers supply only the portion that they can back against a stable real-world asset. They are highly attractive tools when it comes to retaining the qualities of blockchain-enabled payment networks for, say, remittance and hedging.
The institutional players have begun to realize the potential of stablecoins. As of November, the total investments made into the stablecoin space has touched $3 billion, per Stable Report, a crypto research group. It has led to the introduction of more than 120 stablecoin projects this year.
Winklevoss Twins, for instance, launched a stablecoin for their Gemini bitcoin exchange in September. Circle, a Goldman Sachs-backed crypto group, also partnered with a US bitcoin exchange Coinbase to launch a USD Coin.

DUE DILIGENCE

Almost every new player in the stablecoin market is coming with their audit reports in hand, a record that verifies that the company that intends to issue its stablecoins has sufficient assets to back them. Some coin projects have even introduced features that allow them to freeze or delete coins to tackle money laundering acts.
Popular stablecoin project Tether, meanwhile, has garnered criticism for refusing to get its balance-sheets audited by an independent party. It has enabled a whole new competition to flourish in response, which includes more modern stablecoin projects like TrueUSD, Paxos, and Maker, in addition to Gemini Dollar and USD Coin (as discussed above).
As the regulatory watch improves and companies begin to take due diligence seriously, 2019 could prove to the year of stablecoins. Advocates believe that in the long term, almost all the traditional industries would want to integrate a stablecoin solution.
“Insurance, lending . . . these are some of the categories that could start to grow into the trillions,” Garrick Hileman, head of research at Blockchain crypto wallet company, told FT.
Social media giant Facebook has already announced that it would introduce a stablecoin to power p2p payments on its WhatsApp messenger.

[dev] Scottish Bitcoin Conference 2014

So the big thing for me this week has been attending the first Scottish Bitcoin Conference. It’s been really interesting to find out what’s going on in the Bitcoin and altcoin space in general, and an excellent opportunity to meet and network. This week’s news will primarily involve my notes from the conference; note that I do not necessarily agree with all points stated (or even most), these are just the parts I thought was interesting.
First though, 1.8 is now out, and you need to upgrade in order to be on the correct fork after block 371337. Patrick & I spent several hours on Sunday doing a large-scale stress test on the testnet, and it all looks rock solid. I started up 12 relay nodes, 2 mining pools (one mining LTC and DOGE, one DOGE only) and a desktop client in addition to the existing infrastructure in place, and then pointed rented rigs at each of the mining pools in an attempt to cause a fork. Meanwhile, Patrick generated up to 100 transactions a minute (10 times the normal load on production), and ran his own mining rig. Everything worked smoothly, with no problems arising, which is extremely positive.
Back to the conference, and apologies this is going to be a bit rambly as I’m in a rush right now. There conference consisted of a full day of talks on a wide range of topics including economy, investment, regulation, services, etc.
Probably the most exciting part for most of the Dogecoin community was that I had an opportunity to talk to Wouter Vonk BitPay about altcoin adoption, and while certainly no timeline was suggested, BitPay are open to the idea and the main concern raised was that market volume needs to be enough to handle the sort of trade volume they see. A lot of BitPay’s customers opt to exchange directly through to conventional currencies rather than hold cryptocurrencies, and BitPay needs to know they can exchange the coins they receive into conventional currency. For scale, BitPay cleared €7mil in transactions in 2013, and €26mil in 2014 so far.
I’ll follow up with Wouter in the next couple of days, perhaps see if there’s scope for adoption by smaller merchants only, and offer our assistance if they want to adopt Dogecoin. The other takeaway from this was that they were really interested to know what our volume through existing payment processors is like, as well as general volume. Market research and business intelligence data gathering are therefore things we need to be looking at more (and I’ll touch on those later).
Talking of trading, volatility was discussed in a number of the talks, and I personally found it interesting that while volatility scares off western users, it reportedly attracts Chinese users. One presenter suggested that volatility drives trading and that traders are required to bring money into the market; I agree with the first statement but disagree with the second (traders provide liquidity, but tend to remove value from the market in terms of their profits, rather than adding it).
Garrick Hileman gave a talk on the economic context of Bitcoin, and here the scale of other digital currencies is also interesting as a comparison for the current market cap of Dogecoin and scope for future growth. The now defunct Beenz apparently attracted $100m in VC funding. Compare with the current market cap of Dogecoin at $10m and hopefully it’s clear just how much room there is for Dogecoin to grow. Garrick’s talk also touched on inflation, and at the current time over 70 countries have an inflation rate above 5% (the predicted peak inflation rate for Doge once the main mining period ends).
Lastly, there was a really interesting talk from Lui Smyth of Coinjar about who Bitcoin early adopters are, and I wanted to look at gathering some comparable statistics for Dogecoin. The Bitcoin users surveyed tend to have a median age of 30, 60% have never mined (up from 50% in 2013), and the majority are not libertarian (although the libertarian groups have adopted Bitcoin in a big way).
So, I’d like to gather some data on who uses Dogecoin and how you use it. I’ve put together an anonymous survey at https://www.surveymonkey.com/36QB3BX - if you could complete whichever questions are you comfortable with, it would be greatly appreciated. Results in aggregate will be stored indefinitely and used for marketing purposes. No personally identifying information is retained by the survey setter (myself).

UK government mulls Bitcoin regulation

This is the best tl;dr I could make, original reduced by 59%. (I'm a bot)
Anti-money laundering regulations should be updated to include Bitcoin and other virtual currencies, the UK Treasury has said.
Bitcoin expert Dr Garrick Hileman, a research fellow at the University of Cambridge, said that in jurisdictions such as New York, crypto-currency is already subject to tighter regulation.
"Organised criminal groups have been early adopters of crypto-currencies to evade traditional money laundering checks and statutory regulations," said Det Supt Nick Stevens, from the Serious and Organised Crime Command.
"We also intend to update regulation to bring virtual currency exchange platforms into anti-money laundering and counter-terrorist financing regulation," he added.
"People need to be clear this is not an official currency. No central bank stands behind it, no government stands behind it," he told the BBC last week.
US twins Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss are reported to have become the world's first Bitcoin billionaires, having invested $11m in the currency in 2013.

How one big bang sent China to the fringes of the bitcoin universe

Then the Chinese government announced in early September that it was banning ICOs, a crowdfunding approach widely used by cryptocurrency and blockchain start-ups. It also said trading in bitcoin would cease on exchanges in China by the end of this month to limit risks to investors. Transactions evaporated and prices plunged, eroding China’s share of the global bitcoin marketplace. While players in China continue to fear for the future of cryptocurrencies in the country, investors elsewhere have shrugged off Beijing’s ban and sent bitcoin prices back to the highs of early September just before the clampdown – underscoring China’s waning influence in the area. “For now, China as a market for crypto-tokens is out of the picture,” Thomas Glucksmann, from Hong Kong-based exchange Gatecoin, said. Chinese investors fume over Beijing’s bitcoin crackdown
Some Chinese exchanges said they were considering setting up shop overseas but Glucksmann said foreign ICOs and exchanges would find it difficult to solicit interest from the mainland. “[That’s] because China is blocking access to websites of foreign exchanges. And foreign ICO founders want to avoid any backlash from regulators in China especially if the environment in China becomes more welcoming in the future,” he said. While the authorities have put a ban on trading, Chinese individuals are still free to own or “mine” cryptocurrencies. According to data from virtual currency software platform Blockchain.info, China accounts for about 70 per cent of the world’s bitcoin mining power – computer server farms that tap into cheap electricity to solve the complex mathematical problems that underpin bitcoin. Garrick Hileman, a research fellow from the Cambridge Centre for Alternative Finance in Britain, said the authorities were careful not to kill off mining, the “goose that lays the golden egg”. “Mining is the key infrastructure asset in China, not the exchanges, not the liquidity,” Hileman said. “This is quite significant and it may speak to the future trajectory of Chinese regulation.” China’s bitcoin miners in limbo after Beijing shuts down exchanges
In the meantime, some Chinese “miners” could be forced into bankruptcy as they struggle to cash out their virtual coins into yuan to pay their bills. Without exchanges, miners could be forced to turn to shadowy swaps over social messaging apps or other marketplaces. “The result would be a more geographically distributed mining industry where the hashing [or processing] power is not concentrated among a handful of firms in China,” Glucksmann said. However, the jury is still out on the broader future of cryptocurrencies. This week, Kenneth Rogoff, former chief economist at the International Monetary Fund, dismissed the bitcoin rally as a bubble and forecast it to crash. Then last week, IMF managing director Christine Lagarde said it would be unwise to dismiss virtual currencies, and encouraged central bankers to being open to “fresh ideas and new demands as economies evolve”. Hileman said there is equal opposing forces at play in the debate. “A lot of people are taking some comfort in some of these developments and shrugging off the negative ones. Possibly the correct interpretation is the positive news has outweighed the negative so far,” he said.

In honor of Bitcoin $1,000*, here's a list of Mt. Gox's valued customers (*Price is not reflective of the actual value of bitcoin)

I've compiled a list of Mt. Gox's "valued customers" from its twitter stream. Ask yourself if a legitimate company would have a similar stream and lack of customer support.
It's time to put Mt. Gox out to pasture. They were a phenomenal innovator, but it's now just a dangerous exchange.
Note: I'm on this list, too.

The need for better data to evaluate cryptoassets has been a key theme at Australia’s TechKnow Invest conference in Melbourne.
Founder and head of research for UK-based Mosaic, Dr Garrick Hileman, told the conference the company’s new Blockchain platform will help close the information gap currently in the crypto market.
“Mosaic’s trying to solve what we think is one of the biggest problems in crypto today which is the lack of reliable data and research on all these different projects,” Dr. Hileman told the conference.
Mosaic is currently conducting a Token Sale, offering 250 million tokens in a private pre-sale, with ETH and BTC both accepted.
“We want to make Mosaic a trustworthy source of data, research and information for what we see as a rapidly growing ecosystem,” said Dr. Hileman.
Micro savings platform Bamboo also presented at the TechKnow conference in Sydney and Melbourne.
Bamboo helps round-up user’s spare change from the past month’s purchases and invests it into diversified cryptocurrency holdings.
