Esta empresa que cotiza en bolsa acaba de comprar 2 millones de dólares de Bitcoin para su tesorería

Bitcoin ha visto un influjo de adopción institucional en los últimos meses.

Como ha sido cubierto ampliamente por esta salida, los últimos meses han visto a prominentes inversores institucionales asignar capital a criptodivisas para cubrir sus carteras contra la actual inflación macroeconómica que se está produciendo. Además, muchos creen que Bitcoin jugará un papel cada vez más importante en las finanzas.

Por ejemplo, Paul Tudor Jones escribió en una carta a los inversores a principios de este año que piensa que Bitcoin será el „caballo más rápido de la carrera“ debido a la gran inflación monetaria:

„Estamos siendo testigos de la Gran Inflación Monetaria – una expansión sin precedentes de todas las formas de dinero, a diferencia de todo lo que el mundo desarrollado ha visto nunca.“

Otros inversores en Wall Street han compartido opiniones similares.

Estas declaraciones han hecho que las corporaciones busquen cubrir sus carteras de inversión y tesoros usando Bitcoin.

Esto comenzó a principios de este año con MicroStrategy, que compró BTC en agosto con 250 millones de dólares de la compañía porque vio la criptodivisa líder como una cobertura contra las tendencias inflacionistas. La compañía continuó doblando la cantidad de BTC en los meses siguientes y ahora está más del 100 por ciento por encima de su compra original.

Este movimiento ha empujado a otras empresas públicas a invertir en Bitcoin con el dinero de la empresa para protegerse contra la devaluación del dólar americano.

Otras compañías siguen el audaz movimiento de Bitcoin de MicroStrategy
Según la cuenta de Twitter „Deltaone“, que repone interesantes titulares de Bloomberg en su Twitter, NexTech comprará 2 millones de dólares de BTC con dinero del tesoro.

NexTech es una empresa que cotiza en bolsa en Canadá y tiene su sede en Vancouver. Es un „proveedor líder de tecnologías y servicios de experiencia en realidad virtual y aumentada (AR) para comercio electrónico, educación, conferencias y eventos“.

Sobre la inversión, el director ejecutivo de la compañía escribió:

„Nuestra inversión en Bitcoin es parte de nuestra nueva estrategia de diversificación y asignación de capital con la intención de maximizar el valor a largo plazo para nuestros accionistas. Esta inversión inicial refleja nuestra creencia de que Bitcoin es un almacén de valor a largo plazo y un atractivo activo de inversión con un potencial de apreciación a largo plazo mayor que el dinero en efectivo, que actualmente está rindiendo un 0,06%“.

El ejecutivo, Evan Gappelberg, añadió que cree que Bitcoin ganará tracción contra el oro en los próximos años.

Este anuncio llega justo un día después de que la empresa Greenpro Capital Corporation, que cotiza en el Nasdaq, anunciara un movimiento similar. Greenpro busca recaudar hasta 100 millones de dólares en 2021 para comprar BTC.

Sólo tiene sentido…
Se ha argumentado que las compañías que compran Bitcoin hacen que sus respectivas acciones sean más atractivas de mantener.

La prominente compañía de investigación de acciones Citron Fund escribió en un informe de noviembre que las acciones MSTR de MicroStrategy son atractivas y son la forma principal de invertir en BTC a través del mercado de valores.

„Mientras los inversores se apresuran a buscar formas de capitalizar el bitcoin en el mercado de valores, no busquen más allá del MSTR. A estos precios de hoy en día, los inversores están obteniendo un negocio de software de primera clase con un descuento y una opción de compra gratuita al poseer un creciente cofre del tesoro de bitcoins“.

Regulatory Echo: G7 wants to put a stop to money laundering

In the slipstream of the CBDC hype – G7 regulation to put a stop to money laundering

While the CBDC hype is leaving ministries of finance and central bankers around the world either buzzing with enthusiasm or fear, the global economy is taking on the darker corners of crypto-space. In the slipstream of Bitcoin Profit of the global race for central bank currencies, the group of seven major industrialised nations (G7) agreed to take a tougher stance against money launderers. France immediately translated words into action.

Suzhou – CBDC lottery in the Far East: China mixes E-Yuan

A new week, new success stories from the Middle Kingdom: As far as the global advance of CBDC projects is concerned, China need not fear for its undeniable pole position. But to help its digital yuan achieve a breakthrough, the government in Beijing continues to accept unusual approaches. Last week, it again distributed money in its own digital currency to its citizens by lottery. After a similar experiment in the metropolis of Shenzhen had already been successful in October, the inhabitants of the megacity Suzhou were now able to rejoice. A total of 20 million digital yuan (almost 2.5 million euros) ended up in the hands of the lottery winners.

Hardly any progress – German government hesitates about E-Euro

Is he coming, isn’t he? Alongside bond purchases and low interest rates, the digital euro is one of the major bickering and question marks of European monetary policy. It is vehemently demanded by some, condemned by others as a fantastic and unnecessary pipe dream. Even the German government does not seem to know which camp to belong to these days. BTC-ECHO has taken another close look at the current situation.

Financial summit – G7 wants to regulate crypto currencies

There is little that is holding the world economy so spellbound these days as the ongoing corona recession. However, the Group of Seven (G7) demonstrated this week that other construction sites are not disappearing as far from the legislators‘ eyes as they often seem. At a digital meeting of finance ministers and central banks, the largest industrial nations are now reaching a common consensus on the legal handling of crypto-currencies. Together, they want to work on the legal framework in future and, among other things, declare war on money laundering. New regulations should help to prevent their use for „malicious purposes and illegal activities“. At the summit, diplomacy was the order of the day. However, one can look forward to joint steps.

France followed his words with deeds. With the help of a new regulation, the French Ministry of Finance is now targeting money launderers and fraudsters. A new ban will help: in future, all anonymous accounts and transactions with crypto-currencies will be prohibited in the country. New guidelines for the digital identification of persons during their activities in the crypto-space will follow soon. The aim is to put a stop to organised crime and terrorist financing. However, the initiative is not a convincing blow against the industry. According to the accompanying press release, the industry is fully aware of the „groundbreaking possibilities“ of crypto-currencies.

The authors‘ conclusion will please crypto-enthusiasts: the block-chain economy is growing.

Bitcoin on paras sijoitusmahdollisuus, sanoo finanssitieteilijä Niall Ferguson

Tuoreessa haastattelussa, kun kysyttiin „Mikä on paras sijoitusmahdollisuus pandemian seurauksena“, tunnettu finanssihistorioitsija tohtori Niall Ferguson sanoi, että hänen olisi käytettävä Bitcoinia.

Hänen verkkosivuillaan kerrotun tiedon mukaan Ferguson

Hänen verkkosivuillaan kerrotun tiedon mukaan Ferguson on tällä hetkellä Milbank-perheen vanhempi stipendiaatti Hoover-instituutissa (osa Stanfordin yliopistoa), joka on „julkisen politiikan ajatushautomo, joka edistää yksilön, taloudellisen ja poliittisen vapauden periaatteita“.

Hän on myös Harvardin Belferin tiede- ja kansainvälisten asioiden keskuksen vanhempi tiedekunnan jäsen ja vieraileva professori Pekingin Tsinghuan yliopistossa. Ferguson, joka nimettiin vuonna 2004 TIME-lehden sadan maailman vaikutusvaltaisimman henkilön joukkoon, on opettanut Cambridgessa, Oxfordissa ja Harvardissa.

Vuonna 2008 hän julkaisi kirjan „Ascent of Money: A Financial History of the World“. Tätä sovitettiin myöhemmin televisioon viisiosaisena dokumenttielokuvana, joka voitti vuoden 2009 kansainvälisen Emmy-palkinnon parhaana dokumenttielokuvana.

Fergusonin viimeisimmät kommentit Bitcoinista haastattelussa Barron’sin

Fergusonin viimeisimmät kommentit Bitcoin Profit haastattelussa Barron’sin apulaispäätoimittaja Andrew Baryn kanssa, joka julkaistiin artikkelina perjantaina (4. joulukuuta).

Kun Ferguson kysyttiin, mikä on pandemian paras sijoitusmahdollisuus, hän vastasi:

„Menen Bitcoinin kanssa. Sillä on ollut tähti vuosi, kasvua tähän mennessä 165%. [Se on nyt yli 19 000 dollaria.] Jos olisit vuoden alussa sanonut: „Pandemia on tulossa. Se tulee olemaan erittäin häiritsevä. Pitäisikö minun valita kulta vai Bitcoin? ” olisit ollut oikeassa valitsemalla Bitcoin, koska kulta on vain 21% korkeampi. Joten Bitcoinin tuotot ovat olleet suuruusluokkaa suurempia. „

Sitten hän selitti, miksi Bitcoin on onnistunut toimimaan niin hyvin tämän pandemian aikana:

„Pandemiassa taloudellista historiaa voidaan nopeuttaa. Olemme nähneet sen samalla tavalla kuin musta kuolema kiihdytti kolikoiden käyttöä rahana. Luontoismaksut tuottivat rahaa Euroopassa, mikä nopeutui 1340-luvulla. Tämä pandemia on nopeuttanut Bitcoinin hyväksymistä digitaaliseksi omaisuudeksi, lähes digitaaliseksi kullaksi. Lähes joka kuukausi eräs valtavirran sijoitusmaailman päähenkilö on sanonut: „OK, nyt otan Bitcoinin vakavasti.“ Tätä institutionaalisen hyväksymisen prosessia on jatkettava.

Michael Saylor: Why will Bitcoin prevail over gold?
Coinbase facilitated the purchase of Bitcoin
According to an official announcement, Coinbase was selected as the lead execution partner for the $425 million purchase of Bitcoin from MicroStrategy.

In this regard, Brett Tejpaul, Coinbase’s Head of Institutional Sales, in a blog post, provided further details about the purchase. This is in line with the company’s goal of facilitating institutional purchases.

According to the post, MicroStrategy chose Coinbase because the platform provides a number of marketplace tools. Indeed, such as intelligent order routing and algorithmic trading tools.

This was followed by an investment of $175 million. This brought MicroStrategy’s total investment to $425 million in Bitcoin.
