PlanB speculeert dat de prijsdaling van BTC niet het einde betekent

Is de stier van Bitcoin overreden? Deze crypto-analist denkt van niet.

De prijs van Bitcoin ( BTC ) is de afgelopen dag of zo gedaald, van pieken boven $ 60.000 tot onder $ 50.000. Dat betekent echter niet noodzakelijk dat de bull-run van het actief voorbij is, volgens een bekende crypto-analist, PlanB .

„Niets gaat in een rechte lijn omhoog“, zei PlanB vrijdag in een Tweet

“#Bitcoin is tot deze maand zes maanden op rij gestegen. Dit lijkt op de mid-way dip die we ook zagen in 2013 en 2017. “

PlanB staat in de crypto-industrie bekend om zijn Bitcoin Stock-to-Flow- of S2F-model. Het model projecteert in wezen de prijs van Bitcoin langs een opwaarts pad in combinatie met de halveringen en toenemende schaarste. Hij heeft ook een aantal andere modellen rond het concept geconstrueerd, rekening houdend met verschillende aspecten.

In de afgelopen maanden heeft Bitcoin zijn 2017 all-time prijs hoog verkleind, raken gewoon verlegen van $ 65.000 op 14 april, volgens TradingView gegevens. In de daaropvolgende dagen daalde BTC op 23 april in de buurt van $ 47.500 – een daling van ongeveer 26%. De verhuizing is echter niet in overeenstemming met eerdere Bitcoin-bull-cycli, volgens de tweet van PlanB.

De tweet van PlanB op vrijdag bevatte ook een grafiek van de prijsactie van Bitcoin tijdens de bullmarkten die volgden na elk van zijn vorige halveringen. Halveringen vonden plaats in 2012, 2016 en 2020. Bullmarkten volgden in 2013, 2017 en 2020/2021

Eerdere bull-runs kenden aanzienlijke prijsdalingen tegen de achtergrond van een grotere macro-bull-cyclus. Gebaseerd op de BLX-grafiek van BraveNewCoin op TradingView, tijdens de bull run van 2013, na opmerkelijke opwaartse prijsacties, leed Bitcoin een crash van ongeveer 75% tussen april en juli 2013. Na die daling boekte Bitcoin aanzienlijke winsten voordat de hit van 2014 werd bereikt.

In september 2017 leed Bitcoin een daling van ongeveer 40% na aanzienlijke winsten, maar bereikte in de daaropvolgende maanden nieuwe hoogtepunten voordat het het jaar daarop in een bearmarkt terechtkwam .

El multimillonario de Tesla, Elon Musk, lanzó una seria advertencia sobre el Bitcoin por unos tuits que impulsaban el precio

Elon Musk, el multimillonario director ejecutivo del fabricante de coches eléctricos Tesla TSLA -1,6%, conmocionó a Wall Street esta semana cuando reveló que su empresa había comprado 1.500 millones de dólares en bitcoins.

De la compra de bitcoin por parte de Tesla

El precio del bitcoin se ha disparado en las últimas semanas, en parte debido a los tuits de Musk a favor del bitcoin, que en un momento dado hicieron subir el precio del bitcoin casi un 20%.

Ahora, los abogados han advertido que Musk, cuya personalidad rápida y suelta en Twitter ya le ha puesto en aprietos con los reguladores, podría enfrentarse a preguntas de la Comisión de Seguridad e Intercambio de Estados Unidos (SEC) sobre „los hechos y las circunstancias“ de la compra de bitcoin por parte de Tesla.

El lunes, Tesla anunció que compró 1.500 millones de dólares en bitcoin en algún momento de este año, según una presentación ante la SEC, y añadió que pronto empezaría a aceptar pagos en bitcoin.

„No sería sorprendente -dado el enfoque en los tweets del jefe ejecutivo, el precio del bitcoin y los recientes movimientos dramáticos del mercado- que la SEC hiciera preguntas sobre los hechos y las circunstancias aquí“, dijo Doug Davison, un socio de Linklaters y ex jefe de la división de aplicación de la SEC, al periódico The Telegraph, que informó que el enfoque probablemente se centraría en cuándo exactamente Tesla compró bitcoin.

Otros se hicieron eco de la advertencia, con Vitor Constâncio, que fue vicepresidente del Banco Central Europeo hasta mayo de 2018, diciendo a través de Twitter que es probable que la SEC esté investigando la compra de bitcoin de Tesla.

„No se reveló cuando Tesla había hecho esta inversión“, dijo Constâncio, señalando las preguntas que Musk hizo a través de Twitter en diciembre sobre la realización de grandes transacciones de bitcoin.

„A esto le siguieron muchas declaraciones de que apoyaba el bitcoin. El bitcoin siguió subiendo y la inversión de Tesla se ha revalorizado“.

Musk dijo que cree que el bitcoin está „a punto“ de irrumpir en las finanzas tradicionales

A principios de este mes, Musk dijo que cree que el bitcoin está „a punto“ de irrumpir en las finanzas tradicionales.

„Soy partidario del bitcoin. Llego tarde a la fiesta, pero soy partidario. Creo que el bitcoin está a punto de conseguir una amplia aceptación por parte de la gente de las finanzas convencionales“, dijo Musk durante una entrevista realizada en la aplicación de chat por invitación Clubhouse.

Mientras tanto, Musk ayudó a la criptodivisa „de broma“ dogecoin a alcanzar un máximo histórico tuiteando memes y realizando encuestas en Twitter sobre el token.

En 2018, la SEC demandó a Musk después de que tuiteara que tenía „financiación asegurada“ para llevar a Tesla a la bolsa a 420 dólares la acción. La agencia dijo que el tuit, que hizo subir el precio de las acciones de Tesla casi un 15%, violaba las leyes de valores.

Más tarde, Musk llegó a un acuerdo con la SEC para resolver la disputa, aceptando someter las declaraciones públicas sobre las finanzas de la compañía a la revisión de su asesor legal.

Il numero di balene con oltre 10.000 BTC supera il 100: Rapporto

I dati condivisi dal team di analisi di Glassnode dicono che ora la quantità di balene con più di 10.000 Bitcoin ha superato i 100.

Più persone ora detengono 313.052.000 dollari in Bitcoin

Secondo le analisi riportate da Glassnode, il numero di portafogli Bitcoin che contengono 10.000 BTC (313.052.000 dollari) o più ha superato i 100.

BTCImage via Twitter

Inoltre, il numero di nuovi portafogli Bitcoin (MA a 1 giorno) ha raggiunto un picco di due anni, per un totale di 26.261,542.

Il precedente picco biennale è stato notato dagli analisti il 1° dicembre 2020, come riportato dall’U.

Oggi, quando al CEO di BlockStream, Adam Back, è stato chiesto quanto BTC è necessario al suo proprietario per diventare una balena, ha dichiarato che 100 BTC sono sufficienti.

Bitcoin recupera nella zona da 31.000 dollari

Da sabato 2 gennaio, l’ammiraglia della crittovaluta è sulle montagne russe. Ha superato il livello dei 30.000 dollari e ha raggiunto un nuovo massimo storico di 34.608 dollari il 3 gennaio, per poi scendere improvvisamente del 16 per cento lunedì 4 gennaio, con 190 milioni di dollari di futures Bitcoin liquidati su Binance.

Ormai il re crypto si è ripreso e sta cambiando di mano a 31.415 dollari a moneta.

Nel frattempo, altri istituti finanziari stanno entrando in BTC. Come previsto da U.Today, SkyBridge Capital ha lanciato un fondo Bitcoin da 310 milioni di dollari.

Peter Schiff ha ammesso che la Bitcoin ha raggiunto la vetta del mercato

Il 4 gennaio, l’odiatore vocale di Bitcoin e fedele insetto d’oro Peter Schiff è salito sulla sua pagina Twitter per ammettere che Bitcoin aveva raggiunto la vetta del mercato.

Questa è stata la sua reazione a un rispettabile media con 123 anni di storia, il Financial Times, che ha mostrato l’ascesa di Bitcoin al di sopra della soglia dei 30.000 dollari.

Questo è tutto quello che ha detto, tuttavia, senza chiarire il suo tweet. Sembra, però, che l’amministratore delegato della Euro Pacific Capital non abbia cambiato la sua posizione su Bitcoin.

MicroStrategy kupuje kolejne 50 milionów dolarów w Bitcoinie

MicroStrategy nie była zadowolona z „tylko“ 425 milionów dolarów w Bitcoin, chciała więcej.

I właśnie kiedy jego cena spadła poniżej 19000 dolarów, kupił kolejne 50 milionów dolarów w BTC.

Ktokolwiek uważa, że Michael Saylor, dyrektor generalny MicroStrategy, zainwestował w Bitcoin, aby osiągnąć szybki zysk, całkowicie się myli. MicroStrategy to nie tylko byczy hodler BTC. Prawdopodobnie lepiej definiuje się go jako zbieracza BTC.

Dokument opublikowany 4 grudnia przez SEC ujawnił, że MicroStrategy dokonała kolejnej wpłaty 50 milionów dolarów, aby jeszcze bardziej zwiększyć swoje rezerwy Bitcoinów. Firma podała, że zapłaciła około 19.427 dolarów za każdy żeton, w sumie 2574 BTC.
MicroStrategy: Bullish Bitcoin Hodler na froncie rajdu

Potrzeba dużo odwagi – i byków – aby zdobyć tak dużą ilość monet w cenie tak bliskiej ATH. Po tym zakupie MicroStrategy posiadałaby 40.824 BTC, za łączną kwotę prawie pół miliarda dolarów w kryptokurcie.

MicroStrategy zakupiła Bitcoins początkowo w sierpniu 2020 roku. W tym czasie ogłosiła zakup 21 454 BTC za 250 milionów dolarów. Drugi zakup 21.454 Bitcoins o wartości 250 milionów dolarów nastąpił w połowie września.

A ktokolwiek uważa, że to był zły pomysł, na pewno nie śledzi wyników akcji spółki. Ogłoszenia o zakupie Bitcoinów prawdopodobnie posłużyły do katapultyzacji wyceny firmy ze średnio 120 dolarów za akcję do wartości szczytowej 360 dolarów kilka dni temu. Obecnie każda akcja firmy jest warta $328.

Akcje Microstrategy

W ten sposób MicroStrategy konsoliduje się jako spółka notowana na giełdzie z większym bogactwem zainwestowanym w kryptowaluty, jak wynika z danych Bitcoin Treasuries. Firma posiada ponad dwukrotnie większą ilość Bitcoinów niż jej najbliższy konkurent, Galaxy Holdings, który posiada 16651 BTC. Ma również 10 razy więcej BTC niż Square, który zajmuje trzecie miejsce na liście z 4709 BTC.

Michael Saylor wyłożył swoje pieniądze tam, gdzie są jego usta.

Dyrektor generalny MicroStrategy potwierdził te wiadomości na swoich portalach społecznościowych, bez żadnych dodatkowych komentarzy ani opinii:

MicroStrategy zakupiła około 2.574 Bitcoinsów za 50 milionów dolarów w gotówce, zgodnie z Polityką Rezerw Skarbu, po średniej cenie około 19.427 dolarów za Bitcoin. Obecnie posiadamy około 40.824 Bitcoinsów.

– Michael Saylor (@michael_saylor) 4 grudnia 2020 r.

A z tą nową inwestycją 50 milionów dolarów, to jasne, że chce więcej. Ale jego firma nie tylko kupuje żetony, ale stara się uczestniczyć w rozwoju łańcucha blokowego poprzez inwestycje i symboliczne działania. Pod koniec października MicroStrategy zainstalowała swój pierwszy węzeł Bitcoin.

Chociaż Saylor był wystarczająco umiarkowany w tym ogłoszeniu, stał się popularny w świecie Crypto Twittera za swoje bycze wypowiedzi i pełne poparcie dla Bitcoina. Jak CryptoPotato poinformował 28 października 2020 roku, Saylor ujawnił, że osobiście miał 17.732 BTC, które kupił za mniej niż 10.000 dolarów każdy.

Jeśli weźmiemy pod uwagę podaną przez Saylora średnią cenę zakupu wynoszącą 9982 USD za BTC, jego inwestycja o wartości 175 mln USD może być obecnie wyceniona na 334 USD. Nieźle jak na kilka miesięcy hodlowania.

Bitcoin Cash reaches the lowest value against Bitcoin days before hard fork

The Bitcoin spin-off shows few signs of life before its fork, with Bitcoin far outperforming.

Bitcoin Cash reaches the lowest value against Bitcoin days before hard forkNOTICS

Altcoin traders continue to feel the pain as Bitcoin (BTC) rises while Bitcoin Cash (BCH) reaches new historic lows.

Data from Cointelegraph Markets and other sources show that as of November 10th, BCH is worth less in BTC terms than ever before.

Bitcoin at $18,000? BTC market capitalisation may exceed Canada’s currency base
Bitcoin Cash melts
To date, BCH/ BTC has traded at 0.017 BTC, comfortably beating its previous record low of 0.0245 BTC seen in December 2018.

Bitcoin hard fork received little attention this year, with investors focusing on Bitcoin and then the phenomenon of decentralised finance. The announcement of another Bitcoin Cash fork, scheduled for November 15, did little to improve the currency’s outlook, the data show.

In dollars, Bitcoin Cash has spent the last three months floating in a corridor between $230 and $280, while Bitcoin itself has increased by a third in value.

Unsurprisingly, the Bitcoin proponents took a gloomy view of the upcoming difficult bifurcation, something that generated a family dispute between companies choosing to support or reject the resulting new currencies.

„I hope this electoral drama disappears before the next scheduled shitty drama: Less 10 days to the next BCH fork! CasaHODL co-founder Jameson Lopp summarized on Twitter last week when the hard fork was confirmed.

Litecoin has the smallest weekly closing
For Litecoin (LTC), price data show a similar story. The LTC/USD was traded at 0.0038 BTC on November 10, increasingly close to the existing March 2017 fund of 0.003 BTC.

On the weekly chart, the pair printed its lowest close in history this month.

Why a 30% drop in the price of Bitcoin shouldn’t catch you off guard now
Noting the lack of performance of Litecoin and Bitcoin Cash since PayPal confirmed that it would support both assets along with Bitcoin from 2021, a popular Twitter account summarized the mood among those who favor BTC.

„We think it is a bad business decision and also morally and ethically bankrupt for PayPal to allow retail customers to buy BCH and LTC,“ he wrote on November 5.

„Many retail investors will be tricked into buying assets that are completely useless by misleading copies, as below. It is not right“.

Some traders continue to predict a return to the „alternative season“ next year, although the outlook remains bleak in the short term. Meanwhile, Bitcoin’s market capitalization dominance reached 64%, the highest since June.

Bitcoin course uses data science and predictive models to reveal 5 key conclusions in search of the answer to the question: When moon?

The Bitcoin halving was almost exactly 6 months ago and although we can already see a positive development in the Bitcoin price, the big „wow effect“ is still missing for many. The old all-time high is still a long way off, so many people still ask themselves: When moon?

Benjamin Cowen, founder of Into The Crypto Verse , addressed this question by taking historical BTC price data from the past decade and drawing five key conclusions with the help of data science and predictive models. With the help of this knowledge, participants should be able to better assess which market cycle we are currently in based on the current Financial Peak course.

When moon? Well, so much can already be revealed at this point: You probably don’t have much time left to amass BTC at these prices.

Decrypt Bitcoin course with the help of data

Investing in Bitcoin over the past decade has dwarfed the returns of most other investment vehicles.

While a quick look at the Bitcoin price over a short period of time can still look a bit daunting, according to Cowen this is because short-term price movements are best traced back to a random walk or a geometric Brownian movement.

Traditional technical analysis, in his opinion, is often riddled with waivers at every turn, and for any kind of price movement that resembles some kind of textbook pattern, there are countless others that don’t go „according to plan“.

Alternatively, a macro view of the Bitcoin price development gives something that can be deciphered a little better with the help of data science. A quick analysis shows that there are market cycles that have resulted in lower ROIs, while the realization of these ROIs takes longer. In simpler terms, it means that BTC’s macro trend shows an increase in cycles with decreasing ROIs in each market cycle.

In cases in which an annual loss after a speculative bubble can exceed 80%, there is much to suggest that not only the time in the market, but also the timing of the market is important.

The time value of money is crucial in an era when it comes to defeating inflation

1. Bitcoin course is in a „fair value“ phase

The above graph shows the price of Bitcoin and a logarithmic regression fitted to „non-bubble“ data and speculative bubble peaks. If the price is viewed from a high level, areas of accumulation and speculative bubble formation can be identified much more easily.

To better understand these trends, we can calculate the percentage difference between the Bitcoin price and the logarithmic fair value regression fit, which is a monotonically increasing function (Fig. 2).

2. Market cycles become less explosive

The graph below shows that speculative bubble formation with respect to the fair value regression band becomes less and less explosive with each subsequent peak.

In fact, the percentage difference between the first peak in the Bitcoin price in 2011 and the logarithmic regression band is around 6,000%, while the second peak in 2013 is only around 3,000% above the band.

The third speculative bubble in 2017 peaked about 1,000% above the regression band. While three data points certainly cannot establish a definitive trend, we can at least speculate with the data we have so far. For example 6000/3000 = 2 and 3000/1000 = 3. If this trend continues (which is of course a big “if”) and we see a division by 4 from the third bubble to the fourth, we can expect the Bitcoin Course will be overvalued by about 250% in about three more years (2023).

Bitcoin sur la blockchain TRON grimpe à 9000

La blockchain TRON connaît une augmentation significative de la demande de Bitcoin.

Actuellement, il y a 9000 Bitcoin (TRC-20) sur la blockchain

La plus grande crypto par capitalisation boursière, Bitcoin (BTC), connaît une forte demande pour sa blockchain, en particulier avec ses augmentations de prix actuelles. Sa demande dans d’autres blockchain est également remarquable. Plusieurs plates-formes de tokenisation ont évolué ces derniers mois, permettant aux Bitcoin Profit compatibles Ethereum pour la finance décentralisée (DeFi). De même, le marché DeFi sur la blockchain TRON voit une demande relativement énorme pour le jeton Bitcoin ERC-20.

Spike en Bitcoin sur la blockchain TRON

Depuis le 1er novembre, les Bitcoins sur la blockchain TRON ont considérablement augmenté, passant de 2000 à 5000, alors que le fondateur et PDG, Justin Sun, a tweeté tout en célébrant la journée du livre blanc Bitcoin. Pendant ce temps, les données de TRONSCAN, l’explorateur de chaînes de blocs, montrent que le nombre total de Bitcoin sur le réseau est passé à 9000. Cela implique l’ajout de 4000 Bitcoins sur la blockchain en l’espace de 24 heures.

Bitcoin enveloppé sur Tron

La croissance massive suggère une demande accrue de Bitcoin sur la blockchain TRON et son marché financier décentralisé. Selon TRONSCAN, les 9000 Bitcoins de la blockchain TRON sont tous en circulation actuellement détenus par 2179 adresses. Cela fait suite à l’annonce récente de Wrapped Bitcoin (WBTC) sur la blockchain TRON. L’équipe TRON a travaillé pour permettre à sa communauté de profiter des services offerts dans sa blockchain rivale, Ethereum.

Suite à la demande accrue de Bitcoin dans Ethereum via le jeton Wrapped Bitcoin (WBTC), Justin a trouvé qu’il valait la peine de faire ses débuts avec un WBTC compatible TRON sur la communauté. Comme l’a rapporté Cryptopolitan , TRON a conclu un partenariat avec BitGo le 26 septembre pour lancer la version TRC-20 de Wrapped Bitcoin. De nombreuses personnes ont émis l’hypothèse que cette décision visait à stimuler la participation à l’écosystème DeFi de la blockchain, comme on l’a vu sur Ethereum.

Bitcoin rate of 250,000 dollars in 2022? – Billionaire Tim Draper firmly convinced

Bitcoin Course Analysis

Considering the many headlines around PayPal, Microstrategy and Square, the Bitcoin share price has reached new heights in the last weeks. Despite the positive performance, BTC is still trading at a good 35% below its all-time high of 2017. 2 years ago, the well-known Bitcoin investor Tim Draper published a Bitcoin price forecast that sees a price of USD 250,000 by 2022.

In a recent interview Draper spoke with Cointelegraph. Among other things, he talked about his forecast and the hype of Decentralized Finance. We summarize the most important results!

Draper sticks with Bitcoin price of 250,000 USD

Did Tim Draper stick to his Bitcoin price forecast of $250,000? – The answer is quite clear: Yes. The investor and billionaire reaffirmed his statement in an interview with Cointelegraph and even said that he considered it a little too „conservative“.

When asked whether he would stick to his prediction, Draper answers:

Bitcoin will definitely reach $250,000 in 2022 or the beginning of 2023. This $250,000 is just 5% of the market share of currencies.

He sees a major role in the further use and spread of BTC, especially among women. While already „many“ men are already dealing with crypto-currencies and blockchain, there is still a lot of potential from the female side.

In the current times Draper spoke also about the topic of Covid-19, the monetary policy of the USA and the associated effects on Bitcoin. In his opinion, this policy will also lead to greater use of BTC.

Another thing that happened was the $13 trillion action by the U.S. government. This directly diluted the dollar by 20%. Then, of course, people ask themselves, „Where do I put my money, do I put it in gold or in Bitcoin where I have a better store of value?

Decentralized Finance (DeFi) more than hype

The last topic in the interview was the importance of Decentralized Finance. Draper said that not only is DeFi more than a marginal phenomenon, but that it had to happen by force.

In his opinion, the main reason for this is the possibility of having your money work on a decentralized basis. So Draper said:

DeFi had to happen. Humans had Bitcoin and other crypto-currencies and watched these only instead of letting the capital work for itself.

Draper even said that he set himself the goal of making his business sector, that is, the venture capital business, a Decentralized Finance project. In his opinion, we currently see the early stages of DeFi with enormous potential for further development and expansion into other areas.

Hong Kong is getting in close contact with China’s CBDC

The Hong Kong Ministry of Finance plans to test the cross-border transaction capabilities of China’s central bank digital currency (CBDC).

More than 80 percent of the world’s central banks have stated that they deal with digital currencies. So does the People’s Bank of China (PBoC). This is now taking the lead in the research and development of the digital renminbi, the DC / EP. In April 2020 it was already announced that corresponding tests with the CBDC would be started in four cities.

On October 14, 2020, Hong Kong Finance Minister Christopher Hui announced in a press releaseannounced that the government is considering working with the authorities on China’s digital currency project, the digital yuan. Meanwhile, the government attaches great importance to the development of financial technologies. She is determined to use Hong Kong’s position as a global hub for China’s official currency, the renminbi. In consultation with the Hong Kong Monetary Authority, Hui said:

If the digital yuan can be applied to cross-border payments, it would further promote mutual connectivity between China and Hong Kong

HKMA’s priority is to develop a digital currency to make cross-border payments efficient. According to research results, the application of CBDC at the level of wholesale and cross-border payment transactions has greater potential; especially because Hong Kong already has an efficient payment infrastructure for private customers. In order to become active in this area, the central bank has launched a new project. „LionRock“ is intended to examine how Hong Kong can use the opportunities from the development of the DC / EP.

Digital yuan could simplify cross-border transactions

The interests of the government agency in Hong Kong in the digital currency of the PBoC are based on the fact that it could facilitate cross-border transactions. Hui stated:

If the digital currency developed by People’s Bank of China can be applied to cross-border payments, it would further promote mutual connectivity between the mainland (including Guangdong-Hong Kong).

The government and the HKMA still intend to maintain communications.

Is Europe falling behind?

While China’s central bank is already testing the DC / EP in some regions and areas of application , the central banks in this part of the world are still hesitant about CBDC. Most recently, Burkhard Balz, member of the board of directors of the Deutsche Bundesbank, assured that there should be no quick shot in the direction of the digital euro. First of all, it is necessary to clarify „under which conditions the introduction of a CBDC or a digital euro would be desirable for the public,“ said the central banker in a speech on October 20.

Blok 21 Bitcoin Art-stuk wordt verkocht voor $ 131.250

Blok 21, een kunstwerk met een deel van de originele Bitcoin -broncode, is verkocht voor $ 131.250 bij Christie’s, wat meer dan zeven keer de schatting ophaalde. Het schilderij, waarvan de volledige titel ‚Block 21 (42.36433 ° N, -71.26189 ° E) is, maakt deel uit van een verzameling van 40 in de serie Portrait of a Mind van kunstenaar Robert Alice, en werd geveild naast een niet-vervangbare token (NFT) op woensdagavond.

Portrait of a Mind eert Bitcoin

Portrait of a Mind is Alice’s eerbetoon aan Bitcoin , met de 12,3 miljoen cijfers waaruit de lanceringscode met de hand is geschilderd in bladgoud van 24 karaat. De 40 schilderijen hebben een lengte van meer dan 50 meter, waarbij elk een fysieke locatie aangeeft die volgens Alice van belang is voor de geschiedenis van Bitcoin. Elk schilderij stelt een blok voor, met Blok 21 gekozen door Alice als het stuk dat naast de NFT wordt geveild.

De geografische locatie die door het stuk van Alice wordt bepaald, is het Brandeis Theatre Company-gebouw binnen het Brandeis University-complex. Het theater zelf lijkt geen associatie te hebben met Bitcoin, tenzij je bedenkt dat het acroniem voor de Brandeis Theatre Company BTC is.

Blok 21 stelt NFT-wereldrecord vast

Blok 21 is de eerste veiling van Christie’s in zijn 253-jarige geschiedenis, waarbij de verkoop een wereldrecord markeert voor een NFT. Het veilinghuis heeft interesse getoond in blockchain-technologie in de kunst sinds het in 2018 een paneldiscussie ‚Art + Tech Summit – Exploring Blockchain‘ hield, en door het werk van Alice te veilen, hebben ze duidelijk hun interesse waargemaakt.
