bitcoinexchangeguide.com
Yearn & Andre Cronje to “Lead This DeFi Powerhouse Towards Continued Success:” Cream Founder After Pickle, Yearn.Finance has announced its merge with Cream.Finance. Much like the merge with Pickle.Finance, Cream, and Yearn will be working together, and there hasn’t been any announcement of acquisition or token shopping whatsoever. The developers of both teams have joined forces to launch Cream v2, which will focus on lending and leverage products. On this lending protocol, a shortlist of Blue Chip tokens will be accepted as collateral. “Cream v2 enables earning yield with leverage, and is a launchpad for future Yearn & Cream collaborative lending products.” https://twitter.com/HsakaTrades/status/1331845694299095041 As per the official announcement from Yearn, the addition of an in house market will unlock new synergies, including, The development resources of both the projects to join the forces TVL to increase Yearn vault shares to serve as collateral in Cream Yearn vault will also get access to the leverage Not only will Cream be the launchpad for Stable Credit, but they will be launching a new collateral protocol credit solution in collaboration. In terms of total value locked (TVL), Yearn has the most significant share at $560 million than Cream’s $121 million. Jeffrey Huang, the founder of the DeFi lending project Cream.Finance said, “The merger between @CreamdotFinance and @iearnfinance is official. Now I can confidently step back and trust the innovative @AndreCronjeTech + the Yearn community to lead this DeFi powerhouse towards continued success.” While the price of YFI took a drop much like most of the cryptocurrency market, currently trading around $20,800, CREAM defied the market with its more than 125% jump in prices to just under $90. Today, Cream announced the SWAG token's delisting as a supply and borrowed collateral on the platform as a security improvement. In response, Andre Cronje, the creator of Yearn.Finance took to Twitter to share, “We are taking active steps to improve the safety and security of all money markets,” including full security review, full asset audit, zero collateral protocol lending, leveraged yield (yearn & curve, isolated risk/lending pairs, and tokenized debt.

Noob FOMO Buyers Reach “Mania Levels,” Volume Makes New Record on Thanksgiving
bitcoinexchangeguide.com
Noob FOMO Buyers Reach “Mania Levels,” Volume Makes New Record on Thanksgiving Everyone was apparently waiting for the opportunity to buy the dips as the volume recorded on cryptocurrency exchanges exploded to new highs. The sell-off started right after climbing to a new 2020 high of $19,500 after Coinbase CEO Brian Armstrong tweeted about speculation that the US Treasury Secretary was considering regulating self-custody wallets. Antoni Trenchev, the managing partner of Nexo in London, told Bloomberg, “News that the Trump administration may clamp down on crypto might have been a trigger for the drop.” But of course, after a rally of 85% in just two months, any asset “is allowed to undergo a correction,” which gained momentum due to many people over-leveraging. Vijay Ayyar, head of business development with crypto exchange Luno in Singapore said, “Conditions are very massively overbought and bound for a correction,” “So I don’t think it’s unusual.” Overall, it was a normal pullback after the euphoria for seven straight weeks. Once the dust settles, it will be business as usual, reaching for new ATH. And this is why people came rushing in to scoop off cryptos at such low prices. https://twitter.com/MatiGreenspan/status/1332077165781905408 Not just on the spot market but also in the futures, a similar pattern can be seen as they made a new record. This resulted in CME becoming the largest futures market for Bitcoin with open interest (OI) surpassing $1.1 billion, which further solidifies the fact that institutional investors are definitely here. As a matter of fact, earlier this week, Queen Elizabeth II was “left delighted” after learning about Bitcoin in a blockchain journal that the 94-year-old received in the post. According to a letter from her office, she “much appreciated the thoughtful gesture.” Now people are wondering just how many BTC she has. https://twitter.com/skewdotcom/status/1332248779605614592 But the crypto sale is not over yet; the digital asset can go as low as $13,500 in this correction. “Margin longs will be spanked until they go short. Was bullishness was way overheated,” noted on-chain analyst Willy Woo who says the fundamentals of Bitcoin are great as such, the next few weeks is a “great time to scoop cheap coins for 2021.” While smaller buyers marked the last phase of the run to ATH resistance, the rate of that class of noob FOMO buyers coming last week was the highest in this bull cycle, “right up there with 2017 mania levels,” Woo said. This was further confirmed by the leading spot exchange Binance, which said it “is experiencing a big increase in new user sign-ups,” leading the exchange to have delays in its customer service.

Facebook’s Libra Launching as Early as January 2021, Digital Wallet to Hold it Also Ready
bitcoinexchangeguide.com
Facebook’s Libra Launching as Early as January 2021, Digital Wallet to Hold it Also Ready Facebook’s stablecoin Libra will finally be here next year. The long-awaited digital currency is preparing to launch as early as January 2021, reported FT citing people involved in the initiative. However, it will be in a limited format. This year, the Libra Association, which has 27 members, said it planned to launch the digital versions of several fiat currencies and one synthetic coin backed by a basket of currencies. This followed concerns from regulators over this plan for a “digital composite” of all its coins; thus, the association will initially be launching a single coin backed by the dollar. The other versions and the composite will be rolled out later. The project's exact launch date depends on its approval as a payment service from the Swiss Financial Market Supervisory Authority. The application was initiated in May, which is expected to be obtained in January. First launched in June 2019, over this time, several of the founding members, including PayPal, Mastercard, Vodafone, and eBay, left the association, which was announced in April. Meanwhile, the consortium's significant members, such as Spotify and Uber, have no plan for using the digital currency. Some told the media publication that they would wait and see how it was received after its launch before investing in use cases. Facebook subsidiary Novi, rebranded from Calibra, created a digital wallet to hold Libra is also “ready from a product perspective.” However, it won't be released everywhere simultaneously; the plan is to make it live in those remittance corridors with “half a dozen high-volume,” which includes the US and some Latin American countries. To operate in the US, the wallet would need a license in each US state, and though it has already been granted many of the requests, as many as 10, including a New York Bitlicense, is still pending.

Russia Proposes Tax Code Changes; Digital Financial Assets to be Classified as Property
bitcoinexchangeguide.com
Russia Proposes Tax Code Changes; Digital Financial Assets to be Classified as Property The prime minister of Russia, Mikhail Mishustin, has said that the government is considering categorizing digital financial assets (DFA) as a form of property. Mikhail, who was speaking at a recent Russian government session, noted that the authorities intend to forge a path for a civilized local crypto market. According to a transcript of the meeting, Mikhail acknowledged the growing interest in this emerging asset class, hence the need for advanced oversight informed by law. Other than supporting the growing crypto industry, Mikhail's legal propositions are set to protect consumers as well. In fact, the Russian prime minister was keen to highlight that the propositions will help DFA owners to safeguard their rights and interest with a guarantee of proper legal frameworks. He also added that taking such a direction will make it difficult for ‘shadow schemes’ to thrive within the Russian market. Mikhail’s general sentiment was to amend the tax code to include the legal propositions that would recognize DFA’s as property, “Let’s make a number of changes to the Tax Code so digital financial assets can be recognized as property, and their owners will be able to count on legal protection in the event of any illegal actions, as well as to defend their property rights in court.” The prime minister who was appointed earlier this year has been vocal about prioritizing a digital economy's growth. Previously, Mikhail was the lead of Russia’s tax agency, having to be at the helm for around a decade. His newly appointed role as the head of government comes when crypto assets are a major and unavoidable topic for most developed economies. Notably, Russia has not been among the most crypto-friendly jurisdictions according to the latest oversight developments that target the operation of crypto assets. Back in September, the Ministry of Finance proposed to criminalize the non-disclosure of crypto accounts. The country is set to enforce its digital asset bill in January 2021, having being signed into law by President Putin. Oversight Still Ambiguous While the latest sentiments by Mikhail seem quite bearish for crypto fundamentals, an expert who spoke to Decrypt was of a contrary opinion. Artyom Tolkachev, the CEO of Tokenomica, said that Mikhail’s take had not brought anything new to the table. He mentioned that tax code amendment to feature DFA’s had already been announced some time back. Also, crypto-assets supposedly do not fall within the DFA category, “It is important to understand that cryptocurrencies are not ‘digital financial assets.’ By their nature, DFAs are more like security tokens, so it is a bit strange that they were considered side by side at a government meeting.”

BIS Report Suggests Private Stablecoins & CBDC’s Allow for ‘Embedded Supervision’
bitcoinexchangeguide.com
BIS Report Suggests Private Stablecoins & CBDC’s Allow for ‘Embedded Supervision’ A new BIS report looks at the potential, risks, and regulation of stablecoins has suggested the embedment of supervisory requirements into stablecoin networks. The report, co-authored by three experts from the Bank of International Settlements (BIS), was published on Nov 24 as working paper No. 905. This is the latest BIS report on the emerging digital currency space, having recently released a CBDC report in collaboration with seven major central banks. The new report breaks down the stablecoin dichotomy into existing stablecoins whose focus is to support financial innovations in crypto and global stablecoins, such as Facebook’s proposed Libra coin. While the latter is yet to get regulatory approval, it came as a wake-up call to financial watchdogs and central banks worldwide. Word has it that China accelerated the rolling out of its CBDC ‘digital yuan’ on the news that Facebook had tabled a prospective digital currency. Call for Supervisory Integration According to the BIS report, stablecoins are a possible threat to the current money and payment networks, should they be adopted on a mainstream level. Therefore, the report calls for a revised approach in the supervision of stablecoin issuance and distribution into monetary ecosystems. This publication was keen to note that the changing horizon in money and payments are captured in stablecoins, “These trends are embodied in private “stablecoins”: cryptocurrencies with values tied to fiat currencies or other assets.” Consequently, an introduction of supervisory measures will be necessary for preparation for the future when stablecoins go mainstream. In that case, a properly monitored ecosystem will cut compliance costs and facilitate open-source solutions to implement the underlying regulatory frameworks. The paper also mentions that there would be enforceable legal finality of payments. A Possible Proposition The report’s final argument is that a supervisory oversight would be necessary given the potential in global stablecoins as we move into the digital currency era. It supports this take with the example of Fintech payment providers like Alipay, which run centralized payment networks while ensuring compliance and proper checks through data reporting. Likewise, stablecoins can run with an embedded supervisory oversight such that the data reporting process is automated. The report reads, “Stablecoin proposals are one area where embedded supervision may work in practice. Information is a central function of regulation, both from the standpoint of enhancing market functioning and efficiency, and as from the standpoint of supervision, whether for purposes of market integrity, customer and investor protection, or prudential supervision.” Notably, this report suggests that CBDC’s are more likely to achieve supervisory oversight in stablecoin ecosystems.

New Bitcoin ATH Coming by the End of This Year, Big Downside Move Just a BTD Opportunity: Nexo Founder Before the weekend could be here, the crypto market got a buy the dip opportunity as the price of Bitcoin went down to about $16,300 while ETH made it to $480. BTC recovered slightly to $17,265 Billions of dollars have been wiped out from the market as a result of this correction, which the market is calling a “bullish dumping.” The retracement that has been expected is seen as healthy before bitcoin, the largest cryptocurrency, starts ascending again to its all-time high. Antoni Trenchev, co-founder and managing partner of Nexo in London, which calls itself the world’s biggest crypto lender, is a firm believer that the new ATH would be here before 2020 is over. Bitcoin “will definitely have new all-time highs by the end of this 2020,” said Trenchev in an interview with Bloomberg. Even miner unspent supply has been holding strong, growing by more than 10,000 since the March crash, currently holding 1.8 million BTC, waiting for new highs. On the big move to the downside, which the host said just argues that Bitcoin is not necessarily a very reliable haven, Trenchev explained how “this mentality is the reason why most people don't get to profit off bitcoin in the long run.” He further goes on to say how when Bitcoin reaches a new all-time high, it becomes “too expensive,” and when the market gives a correction of just 10% “as a buying opportunity,” people declare it dead. Setting Bigger Targets While in the short term, BTC will be going above $20k. In the long term, even $100k is a real possibility, according to some like Anthony Pompliano, the co-founder of investment firm Morgan Creek Digital. “I don't think it's that crazy to see a $100,000 bitcoin price by the end of 2021,” Pompliano said in a recent interview. “And if we continue to get bigger and bigger buyers … if this kind of tips over and all of the sudden it becomes kind of a consensus trade, it wouldn't surprise me to see something even higher than $100,000.” Trenchev also shared how in the macro, bitcoin’s digital gold narrative is stronger than ever, and if bitcoin just captures like 10% of the total market cap of gold, we will be at $50,000 at no time. As we have seen in this bull run, the number of whales, those holding at least 1,000 BTC, continues to accumulate more and more of the digital asset. These entities have actually reached a new all-time high after over four years, as per Glassnode data. And this is why this rally has been seen as “very different” than the 2017 one when institutional adoption was extremely low. “It's very, very different this time around,” said Trenchev. “Up to 80% of this rally is due to smart money,” he said, adding both institutional investors and retail are participating in this. But despite being near $20k, “it's nowhere near what we saw in 2017-2018 where you had everyone and their grandmother maxing out their credit cards on Coinbase just to get their bitcoin.”

ETH Gas Prices Explode Higher After Ethereum Dumps to $480
bitcoinexchangeguide.com
BTC
ETH Gas Prices Explode Higher After Ethereum Dumps to $480 Everything is going as expected and as seen by the crypto market so many times. The market has been given a Thanksgiving sale as the price of Bitcoin fell hard, to about $6,300 level. This obviously led to an even bigger sell-off in the price of the altcoins. After the rally seen by the cryptos in the past few weeks, a correction was expected, and retail flows into the sector further meant “it’s time to be cautious.” ETH Got Cheap Again The second-largest cryptocurrency market cap went down to as low as $480. Just the day before yesterday, ETH went as high as $620, a level that was last seen in May 2018, thanks to the confirmation of the ETH 2.0 launch on December 1st. “While Bitcoin has understandably dominated market attention over the past number of weeks, Ether has been quietly building steam in its shadow,” said Konstantin Richter, founder of Blockdaemon. As ETH 2.0 comes closer, “market confidence is peaking,” he said. After reaching the $600 mark, Etherem faced strong selling pressure. As per the IOMAP indicator of IntoTheBlock, “the strongest level of support for ETH is located between $531 and $547, where 499k addresses previously bought 6.43m ETH.” As a result, on several of the top centralized exchanges, the funding rate for Ethereum got positive, meaning long traders started paying the shorters to keep the price of perpetual futures contracts near the index price. Then last night, the price of ETH dropped more than 20% to $480, seen last Friday only. At the time of writing, ETH/USD has been trading around $500 with $3.4 billion in ‘real’ trading volume. And Network Becomes Too Costly Not just ETH but DeFi tokens much like most of the cryptocurrency market are in losses; these cryptos are actually down 15% to 30%. CREAM, up 14%, is among a handful of tokens that are in the green at the moment. As a result of these losses, people are changing their positions, and a lot of activity on the Ethereum network is leading to a surge in gas prices. “Gas has exploded higher since the flush. DeFi traders are active rebalancing positions,” noted trader and economist Alex Kruger. Ethereum gas fees have surged to 180 Gwei, up 200% from yesterday’s 60.7 Gwei, as per Blockchair. Earlier this week, the gas fees went down to 29 Gwei, declining from the Sept. 17 high of 539 Gwei when DeFi was topping out. As such, average Ethereum fees went up to $7.48, an increase of 236% from yesterday's $2.28. The all-time high in average fees was achieved on Sept. 2nd at $15.2.

3 Reasons Why Bitcoin Price Crashed 17% to $16,300
bitcoinexchangeguide.com
3 Reasons Why Bitcoin Price Crashed 17% to $16,300 Well, this was to be expected after a surge of 85% in the price of Bitcoin since October. People got a Thanksgiving sale as the BTC price dumped nearly 17% to almost $16,300. Still, the last time we were at this level was just last week, so all good. The lowest we were in November was about $13,200. Trading around $17,000, the ‘real’ trading volume continues to go up, reaching $6.68 billion. https://twitter.com/CanteringClark/status/1331828493110435845 What else did you expect? It has been glaringly obvious that Bitcoin is overextended as it kept on breaking above one level after another in quarter four of 2020. In less than two months, from just above $10,000, we made a new 2020 high of $19,500 just yesterday. After such a wild run, it is to be expected the market would see some correction. Not to mention the leverage started “dangerously” creeping up this weekend. As we have reported and market participants have been vocal about all this time has been the expectation for a pullback. “Conditions are very massively overbought and bound for a correction,” said Vijay Ayyar, head of business development with crypto exchange Luno in Singapore. “So I don’t think it’s unusual, frankly.” Ayyar expects Bitcoin to stabilize and achieve all-time highs but warned that it would be followed by a larger drop in the cryptocurrency. It’s Usual and Bullish as F During the last bull run, the digital asset had an average of 30% drop about nine times. By this standard, we only had half of the correction, another such drop, and we would be going under $15,000, which could give us another Black Friday sale. Bitcoin trader @CryptoCobain called this a “very bullish dumping.” It’s “not unusual to see a short-term pullback following periods of significant, accelerated gains as traders look to take profits before resetting once volatility subsides,” said Ryan Rabaglia, global head of trading at OSL brokerage in Hong Kong. “Once the dust settles, we’re back to business as usual with all medium to long-term bullish indicators still in play,” he added. You can Blame Some These Too If you are still looking for a reason why this happened, an assortment of reasons could be blamed. Just today, OKEx restored the full range of withdrawal services, reopening at 08:00 UTC. Around the time of the fall in prices, Coinbase CEO forewarned the community on Twitter that the US Treasury Secretary is planning to “rush out some new regulation regarding self-hosted crypto wallets before the end of his term.” This led to the transfer of 1,008 BTC worth over $18.7 million to Binance. “This tweetstorm made a difference for some market participants, and likely triggered selling flows, which against a backdrop of unsustainable high leverage (present since Monday) led to the largest 24h drop since March,” said trader and economist Alex Kruger.

Crypto Thanksgiving Sale Goes Live, Black Friday to Offer More Discount?
bitcoinexchangeguide.com
Crypto Thanksgiving Sale Goes Live, Black Friday to Offer More Discount? Well, what were you expecting after an over 85% rally in these past two months? This may have taken us all a bit by surprise despite expecting to see this coming for some time now, but it’s a Thanksgiving sale, and buying the dips is the only option. Bitcoin started breaking one level after another, from just above $10,000 to a new 2020 high of $19,500 just yesterday. And much like BTC, altcoins have been having a wild time. Recently, Ether went up to $620, and XRP was reaching for $1; everything was simply exploding higher and higher, approaching their mid-2018 highs. Add today; the market has turned a deep red just like that. https://twitter.com/loomdart/status/1331804500651364352 Bitcoin started dropping and didn’t stop until it made its way to nearly $16,300, but the pain isn’t over yet as this 17% crash could further extend into the weekend. At the time of writing, BTC/USD has been trading around $17,000 with a real trading volume of around $6.68 billion. Just yesterday, crypto exchange Kraken reported an all-time high volume of $1.4 billion, with $480 million in Bitcoin, $400 million in XRP, and $198 million in ETH. After yesterday, today is going to be another big day for exchanges. XRP recorded the biggest hit of 25%, falling to just under $0.50 level and Ether to $505. Today’s biggest losers include Super Bitcoin (-56%), Bankera (-41%), Verge (-37%), ZEN (-32%), KIMCHI (-30%), Zilliqa (-28%), and CRV (-25%). These deep losses resulted in wiping out $70 billion from the total market cap. However, still, a few cryptos are recording gains: the notable ones are PumaPay (+56%), Ontology Gas (+53%), and CREAM (22%). https://twitter.com/classicmacro/status/1331805799153344512 Bears, however, aren’t done with Bitcoin and, by extension, altcoins. During the last bull run in 2017, the market had an average of 30% retracements nine times; such a pullback will take us to under $14,000 this time. As Charles Edwards, founder of Capriole Investments, noted yesterday, “19.2K was a technical magnet and biggest near-term test for Bitcoin. That was the time to be super bullish. This is the time to be cautious.” According to him, the largest cryptocurrency could slide to under $15,000. “Conditions are very massively overbought and bound for a correction,” said Vijay Ayyar, head of business development with crypto exchange Luno in Singapore. He expects Bitcoin to stabilize and achieve an all-time high, but a large drop would follow even that in the prices for the cryptocurrency.
