Ethereum: one million active users for the 10 biggest dApps

As Ethereum will begin its transition to a Proof-of-Stake model, its decentralized applications (dApps) are used more and more. There are now one million monthly active users for the ten biggest dApps around.

Ethereum’s dApps attract new users

Data from dAppradar shows which are Ethereum’s major dApps , which have the most users. Over the month, DeFi Swap ,’s token exchange protocol , gathered the most users (over 500,000), stealing the place from However, the unicorn exchange is second, with 276,000 users. Then there are Compound (144,000 users), Forsage (29,000) and Hex (22,000).

This strong representation of DeFi projects is not entirely surprising. Decentralized finance is enjoying renewed interest at the end of the year, after suffering an exodus of users in September and October. Uniswap has the largest volume: over $ 13 billion for the month.

The trend is confirmed by the active addresses of DeFi projects , which have been on the rise for a month, according to data from CoinMetrics :

The ETH price on the rise

This enthusiasm for Ethereum dApps can be compared to the price of ETH , which is exploding in concert with that of Bitcoin (BTC) . In two days, it takes + 12%, and + 25% over the month:

Note, however, that it just unscrewed early this morning , dropping from over $ 495 to $ 456. However, its progress over the year remains very correct, since it has taken + 158% over the last twelve months. It also has a market capitalization of over $ 54 billion.

The developers have officially submitted a deposit contract for air 2.0.

The developers presented an etheric 2.0 deposit contract, which will be a bridge between the future at the Proof-of-Stake (PoS) and the existing one at Proof-of-Work (PoW).

Initially, the launch of Air 2.0 was scheduled for 3 January 2021 (12th anniversary of the launch of the bitcoin network), but the The News Spy developers postponed the date to 1 December 2020.

Users can now begin entering into a 32-air (ETH) contract for stacking. 16,384 validators must enter 524,288 ETH into the contract by the target date for the launch of the Beacon Chain network, which will be the start of ETH 2.0 deployment.

Stackers will be rewarded for their stacking after the launch (or genesis) of ETH Zero Unit 2.0. The expected stacking remuneration is quite high compared to other investments and ranges from 8% to 15% per annum. There are good reasons for this: software risks and the one-sided nature of the deposit contract (during the first phases of launch, the airwaves cannot be put back into the PoW network).

„We have maximally strengthened Air 2.0 in test networks, formal checks and audits. We are incredibly pleased to see community activity around Air 2.0, now with real value in the stacking,“ said ConsenSys CEO Joe Lubin in a comment for Coindesk.

„Deployment of the deposit contract is a point of no return for Air 2.0. Right now we have no other choice but to finish the job. After 2.5 years of working on this, I am incredibly excited about where we are and what lies ahead,“ said Ben Edgington, developer of Air 2.0 at ConsenSys.

Huobi: Bitcoin exchange manager allegedly arrested

A Huobi manager was rumored to have been arrested. Despite denials, many investors are selling their bitcoins. Then there’s a mysterious tether payment at Huobi.

Unconfirmed rumors suggest that the COO of Singapore-based Bitcoin exchange Huobi was arrested on Monday. Huobi himself has denied these rumors, claiming that Robin Zhu was on a normal business trip and will be attending a meeting on Tuesday. Nevertheless, some investors did not allow themselves to be appeased and already started to reduce their Bitcoin deposits. The rumors are clearly reverberating, after all, Huobi is one of the largest Bitcoin exchanges in the world.

Asset accumulation made easy: just € 3,000 once is enough

Safe investments and high returns are not a contradiction in terms. Even with a small start-up capital, this method can help lay the foundation for a carefree and financially independent life. Everyone can take part in the free test, no previous knowledge is required.
powered by finative

The news portal Coindesk quoted Huobi in a recent report as follows:

We can confidently announce that these rumors are false. All members of the Huobi leadership team have been held accountable and have not been arrested or detained.

Huobi once again made it clear that despite these rumors, investors‘ money was „absolutely safe“. However, the blockchain tracker @whale_alert has already reported outgoing Bitcoin transfers from Huobi of more than 500 million US dollars within a very short time. Huobi now officially operates from Singapore, but has its origins in China. Apparently, after the rumors had spread, alarm bells rang for many investors. But not because Robin Zhu or the trading center are accused of illegal practices.

Is Huobi the focus of China’s authorities?

Rather, the background seems to be that investors fear cooperation between Huobi and the Chinese authorities. There were already some prominent Chinese crypto companies whose executives cooperated with the police and investigative authorities. The companies did not admit this information for a long time. Apparently, many now suspect a similar case with Huobi.

It was only in June of this year that rumors about Dong Zhao, co-founder of the Chinese crypto platform Renrenbit, made the rounds. After a good two weeks, the company confirmed the news that it was supporting the police in their investigations. Since October there have been problems with the Chinese crypto exchange OKEx . Its founder Star Xu is said to have been taken into police custody. The platform has since suspended all payouts.

It is also irritating that in the same breath as Bitcoin sales took place, large tether sums (USDT) arrived at Huobi. The total volume of just two transactions is over $ 400 million. Rumors of Zhu’s arrest emerged shortly after these two transfers. Since the origin of these two large amounts is unclear, one can currently only speculate about the background.

This is it, it’s election day in the USA and it’s a waiting time for Bitcoin too.

Not only the financial markets, but also the cryptocurrency markets could be shaken by this important round of elections.

In the introduction it must be said that Bitcoin is just back from one of the best months in history. October has in fact brought him to a step from 14,000 dollars and levels that Bitcoin had not seen since January 2018.
The weight of the U.S. elections on Bitcoin

This euphoric phase, however, is weighed down by the elections in the United States.

In the last few days Bitcoin has been declining and currently fluctuates at 13,400 dollars. The volumes have also returned to a low level, as if investors are waiting for more precise information from the market.

Analysts are divided on the effect the elections will have on Bitcoin.

John Bollinger, as reported by Forbes, believes that the presidential elections will have no impact on Bitcoin.

„I don’t think the election will really impact Bitcoin one way or another. It is more important to look at the adoption of major companies.

Bollinger is not afraid of the impact on traditional markets either:

„I suspect that for traditional markets, the election will be more of a ’non-event‘. I mean, we have built such an extraordinary level of emotional involvement during the election, I think whatever the results, they may actually be a bit disappointing, at least for some people, and I think traditional markets will actually be flat or higher during the election cycle. I am not one of those people who predict misfortune in relation to the election or any event that might occur after the election.

Simon Peters‘ opinion of eToro differs, reported in an email:

„It seems that we should wait until tomorrow when the United States goes to the polls before we have any clarity.

In short, his opinion is that investors are in a waiting phase.

Tomorrow, when the first results will come and then when it will be clear who will be the next president of the United States, we can see perhaps more movement in the markets.

It must be said, however, that while Trump’s positions have certainly not been pro-Bitcoin, Biden’s positions are little known. What is certain is that, no matter the winner, in the next few years cryptocurrency will no longer be ignored.

Bitcoin forecast from JPMorgan: BTC has better odds than gold

The Bitcoin community is pleased: The US bank JPMorgan Chase recently announced how they assess the future opportunities of Bitcoin (BTC) there. Accordingly, Bitcoin Pro has a better chance than gold of becoming an alternative currency in the future. This is apparently confirmed by the generally good price trend of the king of crypto currencies.

Bitcoin is the gold of millennials

JPMorgan cited millennials as the reason for this forecast . These are open to crypto currencies and thus also to Bitcoin. The older generations are more conservative and continue to prefer gold as a store of value, it said. Compared to the older cohorts, however, the millennials are currently not economically significant enough, which also has an impact on the importance of Bitcoin.

Cryptocurrencies are still newbies

JPMorgan estimated the value of the gold market at around $ 2.5 trillion. If one compares this with the total market capitalization of the crypto market, which was 341 billion US dollars on October 29, 2020 , the size ratio becomes apparent. The gold market is currently around 7.3 times larger than the entire crypto market, which also often fluctuates strongly. In order to reach gold, the capitalization of the crypto market would have to increase tremendously. JPMorgan stated:

For Bitcoin to be considered as an alternative to gold in the long term, it would have to double or triple the price.

After all, it is remarkable what Bitcoin has achieved in a short time. Gold has been in demand as a store of value and means of payment for millennia. Bitcoin has only been around for a little over ten years. Nevertheless, in this short period of time, the cryptocurrency has succeeded in making itself known as at least the second standard alongside gold and has achieved a market capitalization that corresponds to more than 11 percent of the capitalization of the gold market.

Bitcoin as a means of payment

In their statement, JPMorgan added that the reasons for holding Bitcoin could also change. Bitcoin does not necessarily have to be used only as a store of value. The bank pointed out that the value of cryptocurrencies also lies in the fact that they can be used as a means of payment .

Long-term prospects

JPMorgan went on to say that it sees significant long-term benefits for Bitcoin. Bitcoin is a stronger competitor for gold than is (generally) believed. Millennials would become bigger and more important players in finance over time. With them, cryptocurrencies and Bitcoin would come.

Bitcoin wird derzeit bei 13.126 $ gehandelt

Bitcoin wird derzeit bei 13.126 $ gehandelt

Bitcoin wird derzeit bei 13.126 $ gehandelt, nach einem massiven Ausbruch von 7,5% über 12.000 $ am 21. Oktober. Der digitale Vermögenswert hat einen robusten täglichen Aufwärtstrend und ein neues 2020-Hoch bei 13.220 $ etabliert. Mehrere Analysten haben erklärt, dass die Krypto-Währung laut Bitcoin Future Rang 1 höchstwahrscheinlich in naher Zukunft wieder ihr Allzeithoch erreichen kann.

Bitcoin – WENN die derzeitigen Gewinne bis Ende Oktober anhalten – ist bereit für den zweithöchsten Monatsschluss aller Zeiten$BTC
Institutionen sind zunehmend in den Besitz von Bitcoin involviert
Institutionen kennzeichnen den Wert ihres Vermögens monatlich
– Peter Brandt (@PeterLBrandt) 21. Oktober 2020

Peter Brandt, ein bekannter Händler, glaubt, dass Bitcoin für den zweithöchsten Monatsabschluss aller Zeiten bereit ist, wenn die Dynamik so anhält. Brandt erwähnt auch das wiedererwachte Interesse an Bitcoin und dem Krypto-Währungsmarkt von institutionellen Akteuren wie Grayscale oder Stone Ridge.

Pluspunkte zugunsten von Bitcoin

Eine Metrik, die manchmal übersehen wird, ist die Anzahl der BTC-Adressen mit mindestens 0,01 Münzen. Obwohl diese Zahl normalerweise steigt, gab es Zeiträume, in denen sie gesunken ist, wie 2018 oder seitwärts. Laut Glassnode hat sie gerade ein neues Allzeithoch erreicht.

In ähnlicher Weise kehren auch Anleger zurück, die zwischen 1-10 BTC halten. Am 14. September lag diese Zahl bei etwa 671.350 und fiel am 28. September auf einen Tiefststand von 653.000. Sie scheint sich jedoch zu erholen und liegt derzeit bei 664.870.

Das Wochen-Chart ist absolut zinsbullisch, nachdem Bitcoin in den vergangenen 6 Monaten deutlich höhere Tiefst- und Höchststände verzeichnete. Die nächste kritische Widerstandsmarke liegt bei $13.764, dem Hoch vom 24. Juni.

Der RSI steht kurz davor, überstreckt zu werden, doch das letzte Mal, als dies am 6. Mai 2019 geschah, hat es den Kurs nicht davon abgehalten, höher zu steigen. Darüber hinaus ist der MACD wieder zinsbullisch geworden und gewinnt viel an Schwung.

Ich weiß nicht, wo $BTC die Spitze erreichen wird. Höchstwahrscheinlich werden es 13.500-14.000 $ sein.

Wie geht es weiter? Ich vermute, dass es für einige Zeit eine Konstruktion zwischen 11.500-14.000 USD geben wird.

Alles in allem ein großartiges Marktumfeld und eine gute Aufwärtsentwicklung bis 2021.
– Krypto Michaël (@CryptoMichNL) 22. Oktober 2020

Crypto Michael, ein Vollzeit-Händler, glaubt, dass Bitcoin vor dem ersten Rückzug einen Höchststand von etwa $14.000 erreichen könnte.

Ein Ausbruch über die Widerstandsmarke bei $13.764 würde einen monatlichen Aufwärtstrend bestätigen, nachdem Bitcoin ein höheres Tief bei $4.000 im Vergleich zu $3.215 festgestellt hatte. Der RSI auf dem Monats-Chart ist noch nicht überstreckt und der MACD ist robust.

Bullen müssten sehen, dass Bitcoin die $13.764 nicht nur knackt, sondern diesen oder den nächsten Monat darüber schließt, um einen Pullback zu vermeiden. Glauben Sie, dass Bitcoin bis zum Ende des Jahres 20.000 $ erreichen wird?

O poder sobre Bitcoin é detido por poucos. Está correndo o risco de um ataque de 51%?

Em uma entrevista especial, Konstantin Richter de Blockdaemon também discute o papel crítico do governo no incentivo a uma maior adoção da cadeia de bloqueios.

Os governos e instituições precisam participar com sistemas de cadeias de bloqueio a fim de promover uma maior adoção da tecnologia, disse Konstantin Richter, CEO da Blockdaemon.

„Precisamos trabalhar com essas entidades“, disse Richter em uma entrevista com Forkast.News. „Não podemos simplesmente construir um universo paralelo e depois esperar que seja mais justo do que o que temos atualmente“.

Richter também diz que a descentralização é um ideal de cadeia de bloqueios que pode ser impossível de alcançar na prática.

„Mesmo Bitcoin, Ethereum, Ethereum Classic, obviamente por diferentes razões, todos eles são teoricamente descentralizados até certo ponto, mas eles têm exatamente o problema que você mencionou, que é certo países onde a mineração tem vantagens muito particulares“, disse Richter. „Há grandes corporações, há provavelmente três ou quatro mineiros no mundo que têm taxa de haxixe suficiente para, em teoria, corromper a cadeia, certo?“

A Blockdaemon, sediada em Nova York, é uma empresa de infra-estrutura de cadeia de bloqueio que gerencia nós e trilhos de pagamento para redes de cadeia de bloqueio.

De acordo com Richter, uma série de cypherpunks criptográficos tem a expectativa de que os sistemas de valor de moeda criptográfica substituam os sistemas de pagamento existentes e sejam mais justos ou mais mutuamente benéficos.

„Não é como se escrevêssemos um white paper de 10 páginas e o descobríssemos, e o mercado livre cuidará de tudo, como se isso fosse um pouco ingênuo, e eu acho que a cadeia de bloqueio merece melhor“.

O crescente conjunto de regulamentações internacionais em torno da moeda criptográfica pode estar apoiando a adoção, mas alguns dizem que ela vai contra a natureza anônima e de livre mercado da tecnologia que nasceu como resultado da crise financeira de 2008.

„Acho que é ingênuo supor que podemos simplesmente inventar algo muito simplista“, disse Richter, referindo-se à visão da cypherpunks sobre os sistemas financeiros de criptocurrency. „Buscamos ativamente a conversa com entidades [governamentais e industriais] para vir e começar a participar dessas redes, começar a investigar como funciona o consenso e como eles podem participar da rede, o que é seguro, o que não é seguro“.

Veja a entrevista completa de Richter com Angie Lau, Editora Chefe da Forkast.News, para saber como as provas de participação, segurança, governos e instituições estão afetando a cadeia de bloqueio e a indústria criptográfica.


A prova de aposta é melhor do que a prova de trabalho? „A prova de estaca não tem tanta vantagem sobre a prova de trabalho. Ela tem eficiência em energia e uso de recursos, até certo ponto. É apenas um sistema diferente para dar energia às pessoas que dirigem os nós“.
Sobre as ameaças à segurança das redes de bloqueio: „Acho que o maior ângulo de ataque para a maioria das cadeias atualmente é a segurança dos participantes da rede, o que é outra coisa que vemos muito, que são as grandes partes interessadas e investidores rodando nós em locais não seguros ou por empresas desconhecidas, e por isso há indivíduos trabalhando para essas empresas que podem ter uma maneira muito diferente de olhar para ela“.
O Bitcoin e o Ethereum podem sofrer ataques de 51%? „Neste momento, não há nenhuma cadeia que realmente garanta que isso esteja aberto para o público. Como até Bitcoin, Ethereum, Ethereum Classic, obviamente por razões diferentes, todos eles são teoricamente descentralizados até certo ponto, mas eles têm exatamente o problema que você mencionou, que é certo países onde a mineração tem vantagens muito particulares, há grandes corporações, há provavelmente três ou quatro mineiros no mundo que têm taxa de haxixe suficiente para, em teoria, corromper a cadeia, certo?“
Como uma adoção maior pode ser alcançada: „Nossa visão é que precisamos que esses governos e instituições existentes participem desses sistemas para levar a cadeia de bloqueio a um público mais amplo, que é a razão de ser do Blockdaemon, é que permitimos a esse tipo de instituições – governos, Fortune 500s, bancos – acesso fácil e confiável a essas redes“.
A descentralização e o desenvolvimento de sistemas de blockchain: „O que acontece se nós, porque administramos uma grande porcentagem dos nós do mundo, por exemplo, nos tornarmos um único ponto de falha“?

Pro-Crypto PAC donne 50 dollars en bitcoin à la campagne de chaque membre du Congrès

Si votre représentant élu au Congrès américain n’a jamais entendu parler des cryptocurrences, comment commencer à lui en parler ? Dans l’espoir de sensibiliser le public, le Comité d’action politique (PAC) de la Chambre de commerce numérique, un groupe de pression, souhaite commencer par apporter 50 dollars de bitcoin à la campagne des candidats à la réélection.

Annoncé lundi, le groupe de défense a déclaré que dans le cadre de sa nouvelle initiative „Crypto for Congress“, les membres de la Chambre des représentants et du Sénat qui se présentent à la réélection recevraient des contributions à la campagne en bitcoin.

Selon la fondatrice du groupe, Perianne Boring, il s’agit d’une tentative de sensibilisation et de donner aux membres du Congrès une chance d’interagir avec la technologie des chaînes de blocs et les actifs numériques. En plus de la contribution, le PAC de la Chambre fournira également une formation en ligne et une boîte à outils pour aider les titulaires à s’engager dans les cryptocurrences.

En vous inscrivant, vous recevrez des e-mails sur les produits CoinDesk et vous acceptez nos conditions générales et notre politique de confidentialité.
„L’un des plus grands défis que nous avons toujours eu est que les gens ne comprennent pas vraiment de quoi nous parlons“, a déclaré M. Boring.

Elle a ajouté que le fait de permettre aux membres du Sénat et de la Chambre des représentants d’interagir avec les actifs cryptographiques par le biais d’une telle initiative pourrait aider le groupe dans ses efforts de défense d’une industrie qui doit faire face à de multiples défis de politique publique tels que la fiscalité et la juridiction réglementaire.

Selon le groupe, une fois informée de la contribution, la campagne du titulaire peut soit l’accepter, soit la transmettre à un organisme de bienfaisance qui accepte les bitcoins (BTC), soit simplement se désengager.

„Crypto for Congress offre à l’ensemble de la communauté du Congrès la possibilité de se joindre à ce changement générationnel dans le domaine de la finance et de la technologie“, a déclaré le député Tom Emmer (R-Minn.), président du National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC), dans un communiqué envoyé par courrier électronique. Emmer est l’un des membres du Congrès les plus pro-crypto.

M. Boring a ajouté que le bitcoin était donné car les contributions ont été extraites par les partenaires technologiques basés aux Etats-Unis, Core Scientific et Luxor. „Nous obtenons du bitcoin propre qui a été extrait ici“, a-t-elle déclaré.

De vele redenen waarom de Britse politicus Godfrey Bloom zijn eerste Bitcoin koopt

Deze week onthulde de voormalige Britse politicus, schrijver en meer, Godfrey Bloom zijn plan om zijn eerste Bitcoin te kopen.

Maar waarom? Hier zijn de drie belangrijkste redenen waarom het voormalige parlementslid zou overwegen om te investeren in de belangrijkste cryptocurrency per marktkapitalisatie.

Bloom schreef ook een boek dat Crypto Bull zullen waarderen, getiteld The Magic of Banking: The Coming Collapse. In het boek vraagt hij aandacht voor de komende ineenstorting van niet alleen banken, maar ook fiatvaluta’s – als gevolg van decennia van slecht beheerd monetair beleid. Ook tussen de twee covers van het boek, Bloom bespreekt wat hij onthult als de enige vorm van hard geld: goud.

Wie is Godfrey Bloom, en waarom heeft hij besloten om Bitcoin te kopen?

Godfrey Bloom werd geboren in 1949 in Londen, Engeland. Vanuit een vroege militaire carrière, richtte Bloom zijn expertise op de economie. Later werd hij directeur van een investeringsmaatschappij, voordat hij de politiek inging.

Hij was ook lid van het Europees Parlement voor Yorkshire and the Humber. De uitgesproken politiek werd in 2009 door het Mansion House beroemd gemaakt voor „heckling“ Lord Turner voor het geven van omvangrijke bonussen aan zijn personeel na de reglementaire mislukking van 2008 en de daaruit voortvloeiende economische fallout.

Beschouwt Bloom Bitcoin nu als een andere vorm van hard geld, klaar om het hoofd te bieden aan een falend fiatsysteem?

BTCUSD Weekly Godfrey Bloom Buys Bitcoin Meer dan $10.000

Drie redenen Dit voormalig lid van het Parlement brengt kapitaal in Crypto…

Godfrey Bloom, een van de slimste mannen in de politiek en financiën, koopt Bitcoin voor meer dan 10.000 dollar. Het feit dat iemand met deze referenties naast Paul Tudor Jones en Michael Saylor, CEO van MicroStrategy, boekdelen spreekt over het potentieel van de cryptocrisis.

Bloom, een enorme voorstander van goud, zou Bitcoin kunnen beschouwen als een digitale vorm van het edelmetaal met een nog schaarser aanbod vanwege de hard-capped code.

Hij zou Bitcoin ook kunnen gebruiken als een hedge tegen de inflatie, als hij gelooft in een totale mislukking in het fiat-gebaseerde systeem waarop de hele wereldeconomie op dit moment is gebouwd.

Bloom ziet Bitcoin misschien als een verzekeringspolis tegen onzekerheid. De technologie is nieuw, in vergelijking met de rest van de financiën, maar door nieuwe technologieën komen er grote veranderingen. De potentiële use-cases van Bitcoin zijn nog niet volledig gerealiseerd en het zal tijd kosten om ze volledig te ontwikkelen.

Hij gelooft waarschijnlijk dat er op zijn minst een kans is dat Bitcoin kan uitgroeien tot een belangrijk onderdeel van de portefeuille van een slimme belegger. Bloom zelf heeft een portefeuille van 65% goud, 8% zilver en de rest in onroerend goed. En binnenkort, volgens Bloom zelf, Bitcoin.

Bloom is van plan om te overleggen met crypto-experts via Twitter, het platform waar hij het nieuws onthulde, om meer te weten te komen. Ondanks zijn leeftijd zal hij de technologie waarschijnlijk goed kunnen gebruiken, in tegenstelling tot andere goudbokken zoals Peter Schiff, omdat Bloom ook zijn eigen succesvolle Youtube-kanaal exploiteert.

Les régulateurs israéliens proposent que Bitcoin soit taxé comme une monnaie, pas comme un actif

«La réalité réglementaire en Israël n’est pas adaptée à la réalité existante sur le terrain», déclare le projet de loi proposé.

Quatre membres de la législature israélienne recommandent que les monnaies numériques soient davantage traitées comme des fiat à des fins fiscales

Selon un rapport du média israélien Globes, les membres de la Knesset MK Oded Forer, Yevgeny Soba, Yulia Malinovsky et Alex Kushnir ont proposé le 22 septembre que l’organisme gouvernemental modifie la législation fiscale existante afin que les monnaies numériques comme Bitcoin ( BTC ) ne soient pas soumis à l’impôt sur les plus-values. Dans le cadre de la politique fiscale actuelle, Bitcoin est traité comme un actif et imposé à 25% chaque fois que les particuliers convertissent leurs jetons en fiat, ou 15% pour les prêteurs à court terme.

«La réalité réglementaire en Israël n’est pas adaptée à la réalité existante sur le terrain», indique le projet de loi. «[Les monnaies numériques] continueront d’être un moteur de croissance qui permettra à l’industrie israélienne de haute technologie de s’épanouir et de se développer.»

Si la proposition devenait loi, les monnaies numériques pourraient être imposées à un taux nettement inférieur

En 2019, les personnes en Israël ayant un revenu inférieur à 75720 INS – environ 21781 $ au moment de la rédaction de cet article – n’étaient imposées qu’au taux de 10%.

MK Forer a déclaré que l’organisme gouvernemental devrait envisager la technologie de la blockchain comme une solution pour les options de paiement numérique pendant la pandémie. Aujourd’hui encore, la Knesset a approuvé un autre verrouillage national à partir de vendredi après que plus de 7000 personnes ont été diagnostiquées avec le COVID-19 en Israël dans un délai de 24 heures.

„Il est possible de promouvoir les options de paiement numérique en raison de la distance sociale qui nous a été imposée“, a déclaré Forer. „Lorsque l’avenir économique n’est pas clair, nous devons donner un coup de pouce aux moteurs de croissance.“

La bureaucratie s’est avérée être un obstacle majeur aux monnaies numériques en Israël. Malgré la croissance récente des entreprises de blockchain et de cryptographie , les régulateurs pro-crypto ont eu une bataille en cours depuis que le gouvernement a déclaré en 2018 qu’il traiterait la cryptographie comme un «actif» à des fins fiscales. En 2019, un tribunal israélien a statué qu’un investisseur devait payer un impôt sur les plus-values de 830000 USD en Bitcoin, arguant que les devises du pays devaient avoir une manifestation physique en vertu de la loi actuelle.
