New Ethereum plugin for WordPress competes

New Ethereum plugin for WordPress competes with Google AdSense

A new crypto plugin enables WordPress website operators to earn advertising revenue in Ether (ETH) and have it paid directly into their wallets. This is stated on December 10th in the description for a new plugin on the official WordPress website.

The plugin called „EthereumAds“ enables website operators to automatically auction their advertising by BitQT space via smart contracts based on Ethereum block chain. The corresponding auctions are processed in the form of the corresponding crypto currency ETH. The description says: „After you have installed our widget, your advertising space will automatically be auctioned to the highest bidder every fortnight via our Smart Contract.

As EthereumAds writes on its own website, the WordPress plugin wants to compete with Google’s advertising service Google AdSense. A powerful argument for switching to the new plugin is said to be that EthereumAds charges lower fees: „Google AdSense only pays out 68% of its revenues, while we pass on 90% of our revenues to you“.

The new plugin can be used for websites, blogs and other forms of web content. At the same time it is not limited to crypto-related content

Crypto projects such as EthereumAds create new competition for the quasi-monopolist Google. It remains to be seen how the market leader will react to the new competition in the future.

A few months ago, Google had already had bad experiences with crypto-currencies on its own advertising platform in other ways. As reported by Cointelegraph, Google AdSense was used to place fraudulent crypto ads on the one hand, while on the other hand the advertising of legal crypto projects was switched off. In addition, Google Ads 2019 had placed search terms for the crypto currency Ethereum on the „black list“.

As ETH 2.0 Ethereum approaches, it breaks records

According to Glassnode, Ethereum is breaking records as the launch of ETH 2.0 approaches on 1 December.

According to Glassnode, Ethereum breaks multiple records. Specifically as ETH 2.0 could be launched on December 1st.

It should be noted that the launch of the deposit contract added the possibility for users to deposit the 32 ETHs required to participate in the staking.

Thus, ETH 2.0 will take place on 1 December, provided that at least 16,384 deposits of 32 ETH each are received. That is a total of 524,288 ETH, or approximately $200 million.

Ethereum breaks records waiting for ETH 2.0

Indeed, hours after the news of the launch of the deposit contract was published, the number of Ethereum addresses containing at least 32 Ethereum, reached an all-time high (ATH) of 126,852.

Precisely, about 13% of all addresses that currently have more than 32 ETH, will have to participate of an Crowd Millionaire to launch the staking.

Very important, the required amount must be collected at least seven days before the planned launch date of December 1st. If not, the launch is delayed seven days after the threshold is reached.

In any case, it is unlikely that the launch will be delayed, as the number of addresses with more than 32 ETH is more than 125,000. And so far it is at its peak.

Similarly, the number of addresses containing at least 0.1, 10 or 100 ETH has also increased. And so, record historical highs of 3,616,246 addresses, 293,183 addresses and 52,943 addresses, respectively.

Incidentally, the number of ETHs remaining in the Exchanges has also just reached a one-year low of 15.8 million.

Will there be a launch on 1 December?

According to the Ethereum Foundation’s blog, the first version of Ethereum 2.0 will be launched on December 1st. As long as certain criteria are met.

Also, a Launch Platform was revealed, where users can register to become an Ethereum 2.0 validator. In addition, the main address of the Ethereum contract, where the funds will be deposited.

As a curiosity, the funds should not be sent directly to the deposit contract. Instead, they should be blocked using the staking mechanism.

Very important, according to the Ethereum Foundation’s blog, in order to facilitate the deposit of the 32 ETH and avoid scams with contracts pretending to be the real one, Ethereum Name Service (ENS) has already registered the domain depositcontract.eth. Which will not require renewals until 2150.

The current version of Ethereum 2.0

For current Ethereum users, nothing will change for the time being. Basically, Ethereum will exist for some time with the current Blockchain. That works with Proof of Work, until the definitive migration is done. And the whole network will apply the Proof of Stake.

To conclude, we will have to follow these changes closely. To see how they are impacting on the price of Ethereum.

I leave with this sentence from Idries Shah: „The existence of relative truth does not prove the non-existence of universal truth“.

Rassemblement des pièces de monnaie, les pièces de monnaie alternatives pourraient suivre bientôt

Le prix du bitcoin a augmenté de 5 % et il a dépassé les 16 400 dollars.

Ethereum pourrait tester à nouveau la résistance de 470 USD, le XRP est bloqué en dessous de 0,260 USD.
Le SUSHI a progressé de 10 % et le CHSB de 8 %, à 0,0975 USD.

Le prix du bitcoin est resté dans une zone positive et il a finalement réussi à dépasser la zone de résistance de 16 000 USD. Le BTC a gagné 5 % et il y a eu une rupture au-dessus de la résistance de 16 400 USD. Le prix est actuellement (04:30 UTC) en train de corriger les gains.

Inversement, il y a eu surtout des mouvements de gamme dans la plupart des principaux altcoins, y compris l’ethereum, le XRP, l’EOS, le XLM, le LINK, le BNB, le TRX et l’ADA. L’ETH/USD se négocie au-dessus de 460 USD, mais il est confronté à des obstacles majeurs, près de 468 USD et 470 USD. De même, le XRP/USD maintient le support de 0,255 USD, mais il a du mal à dépasser les 0,260 USD.

Capitalisation boursière totale

Prix du bitcoin

Enfin, le prix du bitcoin s’est renforcé au-delà de la résistance de 15 800 dollars et a dépassé la résistance de 16 000 dollars. La BTC a gagné plus de 5 % et s’est même rapprochée du niveau de 16 500 dollars. Si la dynamique actuelle reste intacte, il y a de fortes chances pour que d’autres gains dépassent les niveaux de 16 500 et 16 600 dollars.
En cas de correction à la baisse, le niveau de 16 250 dollars pourrait constituer un soutien décent. Le prochain soutien important semble se former près du niveau de 16 000 dollars.
Prix de l’éthéré

Le prix de l’Ethereum a du mal à suivre le bitcoin et se négocie au-dessus du niveau de 460 USD. En revanche, les niveaux de 468 et 470 USD constituent des obstacles majeurs pour les taureaux. Une clôture au-dessus de 470 USD est nécessaire pour une poussée vers 485 USD ou même 495 USD.
Un autre échec à franchir le niveau de 470 USD pourrait déclencher une correction à la baisse. Un premier soutien à la baisse est proche du niveau de 458 USD, mais le principal soutien se situe maintenant aux alentours de 454 USD.

Prix des bitcoins au comptant, des maillons de chaîne et des XRP

Le prix au comptant des bitcoins augmente lentement et s’approche des niveaux de résistance de 260 dollars. Si BCH s’installe au-dessus du niveau de 260 USD, il pourrait augmenter régulièrement vers les niveaux de 265 USD et 270 USD. Inversement, il pourrait descendre dans une fourchette et tester à nouveau le niveau de soutien de 250 USD à court terme.

Chainlink (LINK) montre quelques signes baissiers en dessous du niveau de soutien de 13 USD. Le prix a même cassé le niveau de soutien de 12,50 USD, mais il est resté au-dessus du niveau de 12,20 USD. Il tente actuellement une correction à la hausse, mais les niveaux de 12,80 et 13,00 USD pourraient faire office de barrières à court terme.

Le prix du XRP se négocie dans une large fourchette au-dessus du niveau de soutien de 0,252 USD. À la hausse, le prix est confronté à une forte résistance proche de 0,260 USD. Une clôture réussie au-dessus du niveau de résistance de 0,260 USD est nécessaire pour une hausse soutenue. Dans le cas contraire, il existe un risque de rupture en dessous des niveaux de soutien de 0,255 et 0,252 USD.

Le marché des autres altcoins aujourd’hui

Au cours des dernières heures, quelques altcoins ont gagné plus de 8 %, dont SUSHI, CHSB, HEDG, LTC, KSM, ICX, WBTC et WAVES. À l’inverse, ABBC, OCEAN, STX, NEAR, VET, ANT, TMTG, AMPL et SOL ont baissé de plus de 5 %.

Dans l’ensemble, le prix du bitcoin dépasse les 16 200 et 16 000 USD. Il semble que la BTC pourrait franchir le niveau de 16 500 USD et continuer à augmenter vers les niveaux de 16 750 USD et 16 800 USD.

Competition for DeFi – Circle introduces business accounts with high interest income

The “centralized financial services” are now increasingly competing with the decentralized financial services.

The Circle Business Account, the business account of the crypto payment service provider Circle, which was originally intended to offer Internet companies an alternative to bank accounts with traditional, centralized financial institutions, is now also becoming a competitor for decentralized financial services (DeFi).

Circle, which is supported by Goldman Sachs and even publishes the Stablecoin USDC had the Circle business account on March 10, 2020 introduced

The corresponding business accounts offer companies a number of possibilities to use the USDC as uncomplicated as possible as a means of payment and transaction. For example, you can connect the stablecoin to traditional payment systems via an API, receive payments in US dollars as Crypto Code or use this to pay at various online retailers.

The crux so far, however, was that crypto assets in the form of stablecoins such as the USDC could be better invested in DeFi projects, as higher interest income beckoned here. According to data from DeFi information portal DeFirate, projects such as Aave and Fulcrum currently offer 3.4% and 11.6% interest on the USDC, respectively.

Circle has now countered this by introducing new business accounts with particularly high interest rates on November 5th

This is intended to ensure that corporate customers prefer to park their crypto funds with Circle, and thus in the system of „centralized financial services“ (CeFi). As stated on the company’s website, the corresponding interest rates are between 8.5% and 10.75% per year. However, interested customers must first register on a waiting list.

The interest income is skimmed off daily and paid out weekly, which is a clear advantage over traditional business accounts, which often only pay out monthly or even annually. Accordingly, Circle is more oriented towards DeFi projects that offer interest income in real time. The end result is a financial product that combines the rapid availability and attractive interest rates of decentralized financial services with the security of centralized financial services.

The new offer from Circle is the next crossover between “CeFi” and “DeFi”. In August, the OKEx crypto exchange already entered into a partnership with Bitrue in order to create similar synergies.

Raoul Milhado, CEO of Elitium, recently in a commentary for Cointelegraph written , competition between DeFi and CEFI that ultimately for consumers is beneficial:

“Centralized and decentralized apps can be combined to create new financial products and get more people excited about DeFi […]. By combining DeFi and CeFi, we can simplify the transition from a centralized to a decentralized financial system. „

La OI de BitMEX tiende a subir a medida que los operadores van en corto en Bitcoin; por qué esto es alcista

Ha sido una semana salvaje para los mercados criptográficos, con los inversores teniendo que digerir una plétora de noticias que favorecían en gran medida a los osos de Bitcoin.

Dicho esto, el mercado sorprendentemente no reaccionó muy negativamente a ninguno de estos desarrollos, lo que parece ser un signo de creciente madurez.

Uno de los principales acontecimientos de esta semana que tiene implicaciones secas para el mercado criptográfico es la decisión de la CFTC de acusar a los tres cofundadores de BitMEX de múltiples violaciones regulatorias – algunos de los cuales los cargos incluso conllevan tiempo de prisión.

El tamaño y la influencia de BitMEX en todo el mercado no puede ser exagerado, lo que hace que la perspectiva de que su dominio sea cerrado por el gobierno de los EE.UU. sea bastante aterradora, independientemente de la probabilidad de que esto suceda.

Un operador está notando ahora que el interés abierto en BitMEX está comenzando a encontrar un piso y una tendencia más alta después de un éxodo masivo de dinero fuera de la plataforma.

Observa que parece que los operadores están empezando a ir en corto en Bitcoin, lo que podría significar que es inminente un apretón de manos.

Bitcoin ve un extraordinario apretón de manos en el comercio lateral

En el momento de escribir este artículo, Bitcoin se está negociando marginalmente a su precio actual de 10.560 dólares. Aquí es donde ha estado operando durante los últimos días, con los compradores y vendedores llegando a un punto muerto tras la volatilidad vista a principios de semana.

Donde las tendencias de todo el mercado en los días y semanas venideras probablemente dependerán principalmente de cómo se resuelva esta fase de consolidación en curso.

Si los osos toman el control, necesitarán empujar a Bitcoin por debajo de su soporte de 10.200 dólares para que se catalice un descenso de mayor alcance. Los toros deben romper 11.200 dólares, ya que otro rechazo aquí apuntaría a una debilidad subyacente significativa.

Analista: El interés abierto de BitMEX indica que un apretón de corto plazo es inminente

En un reciente tweet, un analista observó que el interés abierto por Bitcoin en BitMEX está empezando a encontrar un suelo y a subir más alto, con gran parte de este crecimiento debido a las posiciones cortas recién abiertas.

Como tal, cree que un apretón podría ser inminente a corto plazo.

„Parece que el interés abierto de Bitmex está empezando a encontrar un piso y una tendencia al alza. Durante este período todavía tenemos a CVD haciendo bajas. ¿Aquellos que andan por ahí abriendo nuevas posiciones cortas? Carga el apretón“, dijo.

Si se produce una pequeña compresión a corto plazo, podría ser justo lo que Bitcoin necesita para ver un impulso serio en los próximos días y semanas.

Ethereum 2.0: will the long-awaited update go live in a few weeks?

Ethereum 2.0 developer Ben Edgington assumes that the update, long awaited by crypto investors, will be introduced in six to eight weeks. Staking with Ether should be possible this year.

The Ethereum 2.0 developers Edgington goes into a blog post assume that the „Deposit Contract“ for the minutes will be published in a few days

As I understand it, we are ready for the release of the long-awaited Ethereum 2.0 update. The Beacon Chain should be published in six to eight weeks at the latest.

This should finally make it possible to stake Ether (ETH) . In addition, the “Deposit Contract” enables the smooth exchange of Ether between Immediate Edge and Ethereum 2.0. Thus, the update represents one of the biggest remaining puzzle pieces for the start of Ethereum 2.0.

Something is happening – ETH staking should be possible this year

The contribution by ConsenSys developer Edgington was published after a successful test run of the Zinken testnet. Anthony Sassano of Set Protocol saw the successful launch of the Zinken-Testnet as a dress rehearsalfor the start of phase zero for Ethereum 2.0.

In order to approve the stat of phase 0, a total of 500,000 ETH must be blocked in the staking contract of the beacon chain. Based on the current ETH rate, that’s just under 190 million US dollars. The start of the Genesis block takes place one week after this minimum is reached.

All this means that after years of development and many tests, the transition to phase 0 of ETH 2.0 can begin.

Despite little participation in various ETH 2.0 test networks, Edgington is firmly convinced that the network is finally ready for the initiation of phase zero:

I think people are a little bit bored with testnets. It is time to move on, we have to start phase 0 as soon as possible.

Caution is advised – Ethereum 2.0 is not live yet

Despite all the positive news, Ethereum developer Ben Edgington points out that his statements are not binding. Still, many assume that Ethereum 2.0 will start soon.

In the meantime, Edgington countered that investors should beware of scams:

Be careful out there. Many fake Ethereum 2.0 websites will be published in the next few days. Pay attention to the official announcement and do not act recklessly.

Although there have already been several test networks, such as the Medalla test network, no one currently knows whether ETH 2.0 can be launched without any problems. A smooth transition from Ethereum to Ethereum 2.0 is not guaranteed. In addition, it is possible that problems arise that could end with the total loss for Ethereum stakers.

Max Keizer opfordrer Jack Dorsey til Bitcoin, siger amerikanske administrerende direktører ‚får ikke‘ det

  • Bitcoin-tyr Max Keizer kaldte Twitter og Square, Inc. CEO Jack Dorsey for hans engagement i kryptokurrency.
  • Dorsey sagde, at det nuværende finansielle system er „ekskluderende“ og en negativ indvirkning på samfundet.

Den populære kryptokommentator og BTC-tyr Max Keizer opfordrede Twitter og Square, Inc. CEO Jack Dorsey for hans engagement i bitcoin, mens han sagde, at amerikanske administrerende direktører „ikke får det store billede.“

I et tweet, der blev offentliggjort den 30. september, kaldte Max Keizer Dorsey’s forpligtelse over for bitcoin „smukke ord“, men stillede spørgsmålstegn ved, om administrerende direktør havde samme niveau af engagement som andre tal i branchen.

Keizer pegede på Michael Saylor, grundlægger af MicroStrategy, og hans virksomheds betydelige investering i bitcoin som en mere eksemplarisk figur for branchen

Keizer hævdede også, at amerikanske administrerende direktører manglede det „store billede“ på bitcoin og dets værdi i lande som Nigeria, der i øjeblikket gennemgår massiv krypto-adoption.

Keisers kommentarer kom som svar på et tweet fra Dorsey, der kaldte Bitcoin Era „direkte aktivisme“ mod det nuværende finansielle system. Dorsey, der grundlagde betalingsplatformen Square, kaldte det finansielle system „ekskluderende“ og sagde, at det negativt påvirkede meget af vores samfund.

Keizer, der er vært for Keizer-rapporten, har været en lang tid bitcoin-tyr og kryptosupporter. Tidligere på måneden forudsagde han, at bitcoin i sidste ende ville opnå en bred vedtagelse af centralbanker i lyset af global fiat-fiasko.
