Chinese authorities to close 64 mining farms

After the meeting of Yunnan province officials, it was ordered to shut down 57 illegally operating mining farms that were disguising themselves as Big Data companies. Another 7 facilities under construction must cease working. The region’s authorities noted the benefits of mining companies that take away excess electricity, but pointed out that many of them come into direct agreements with hydroelectric power plants and evade taxes. Earlier, the local power grid company demanded to stop the illegal energy consumption by miners who connect to the stations bypassing the authorities. It is reported that some farms have already put up their equipment for sale.

Bitcoin steadily rises in price in May

The principle of traditional markets “sell in May and go away” does not apply to bitcoin, according to analysts at Messari. Last month, BTC added 9%, slightly higher than the 2020 average of 8.5%. At the same time, in 2019, cryptocurrency in May rose by 54% with an average return of less than 8% per month. And in just 10 years, Bitcoin showed a positive trend in May 8 out of 10 times, while in 6 cases it was higher than the monthly average. Among classical traders, there is an opinion that in the summer there is no significant growth in the market, so it makes no sense to open long positions until the fall.

CoinMetrics: signs are emerging that may mark the beginning of an altcoin season

The analytical service CoinMetrics drew attention to the price growth of some crypto assets. Cardano has risen 40% in the past week after announcing the launch date for the next major update “Shelley”. OmiseGo price doubled after Coinbase announced the coin’s listing In addition, ETH price grew by 14% per week, ahead of a number of “core assets” - and the majority of altcoins work on the ethereum blockchain, analysts note. “Such market movements in response to mainnet launches, new product upgrades, and exchange listings are reminiscent of late 2017,” CoinMetrics experts conclude.

Miners reduced bitcoin sales

The Glassnode portal has published data on the influx of coins to exchanges from mining pools. It turned out that after the halving on May 11, miners reduced sales, and now their volume is much lower than the average values for 2020. Over the past two months, sale peaks were observed on May 3 and 7, when Bitcoin price surpassed the $9,000 and $10,000 marks, respectively. Service experts also noted that a surge in BTC price on June 2 above $10,000 provoked an eight-fold increase in the flow of traders’ funds to large exchanges. After the dip to $9,500, the indicators returned to average, which indicates the importance of the round level of $10,000 for market participants.

Bitcoin has got protection against attacks by authorities

Bitcoin Core 0.20.0 was released on June 3. It contains a solution designed to protect the network from attacks of major players, such as nation-states or corporations like Google. Software “Asmap” was included to protect against a theoretical “Erebus” attack. Such an attack involves blocking or substituting P2P connections to isolate a specific part of the network. The attacker must connect to as many nodes around the victim as possible so that all eight of its external connections go through the attacker's network. Thus, the victim is completely isolated from the main blockchain. Theoretically, such an attack, carried out by an entire nation-state, could fracture the entire Bitcoin network.

Again, miners sell more BTC than they mine

After the halving of the block reward, miners have to sell more coins than they can earn, according to a report by Arcane Research. The company uses the Miner’s Rolling Inventory (MRI) metric, which tracks the number of coins generated and moved by miners. If the figure is above 100%, then they sell more BTC than they mine. In March, the MRI reached 105%, then began to decline and fell below 100% on the verge of halving. Immediately after the event, the indicator began to grow and now has again reached the level of 105%. According to Arcane Research analysts, this indicates a change in the mood of miners after halving.

Commission fees at ETH have surpassed BTC

Ethereum network activity continues to grow: last Saturday, daily transaction fees exceeded Bitcoin levels. According to Glassnode, for the ETH network, the figure was $498 thousand against $ 308 thousand for BTC. Analysts attribute this to the growing demand for transfers in Ethereum. In addition, recently the capitalization of stablecoins has been growing, the bulk of which operates on the ETH blockchain. Earlier, the founder of Mythos Capital, Ryan Sean Adams, noted that there is a direct correlation between commission fees and the price of Ethereum. If the trend continues, then we can expect a growth of cryptocurrency price.

What altcoins will surge in price along with Bitcoin?

Simon Dedik, co-founder of the Blockfyre analytical portal, shared his opinion. He noted that in 2017, during the rally of Bitcoin price, almost all altcoins went up in price. In the next cycle, this situation will not happen again, and only the most important altcoins for the crypto industry will surge in price. These, according to the analyst, include Ethereum, Litecoin and XRP. Not all representatives of the crypto sphere adhere to this opinion. So, TV presenter Max Kaiser said that altcoins can not compete with the first cryptocurrency in the future. A similar position was expressed by the CEO of Morgan Creek Digital Anthony Pompliano: in his opinion, all altcoins will become useless and disappear from the market.

Survey: 36% of large institutions invested in Bitcoin

Fidelity Investments surveyed 774 institutional investors from Europe and the USA - it turned out that 36% of them had purchased Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. These include hedge funds, financial managers, pension funds and other market participants. At the same time, the share of such investors increased from 22% to 27% over the year in the USA, while in Europe the figure is even higher - 45%. Tom Jessop, CEO of Fidelity Investments, explained that this is due to more relaxed European legislation and the prevalence of negative rates. “These results confirm a trend we are seeing in the market towards greater interest in and acceptance of digital assets as a new investable asset class,” he concluded.

80% of ETH holders are in positive territory

80% of Ethereum owners bought cryptocurrency at a price lower than the current one, according to Glassnode. Over the past two years, the indicator was at such a high level only three times. At the same time, the last time the price of ETH was $700, now the asset is trading at around $245. At the end of March, with the price dropping to $108, the share of investors in profit fell to 18%, a record low since 2016. The historical maximum price of Ethereum was set in January 2018 at around $1,430 - since then, the cryptocurrency has fallen in price by 83%. Glassnode previously noted that more than 77% of ETH has not moved over the past six months.

Buterin: the growth of the bitcoin price is not related to halving

The co-founder of Ethereum Vitalik Buterin stated that the theory that the growth of the BTC exchange rate was related to halving did not work. The developer attached a chart of the S2F model according to which bitcoin periodically increased its cost together with halving the reward for mining a block. "The last $20k peak was near the halfway point between the 2016 and 2020 halvings", he pointed out. In the comments Buterin was told that the model predicted the quantitative growth of the bitcoin price, but it did not presume that the maximum will coincide exactly with the event of halving. The developer agreed that the absence of the direct correlation between halving and the growth of the bitcoin price did not disprove the theory, but said that he still did not agree with it.

The price of Ethereum can rise up to $7,500

If the BTC exchange rate increases up to $50,000, Chris Burniske, a partner in the Placeholder venture capital firm, thinks. "If $BTC goes > $50,000 in the next cycle, and $ETHBTC returns to its former ATH, then expect to see $ETH > $7,500", he wrote in his Twitter account. According to him, the price of bitcoin will rise up to $50,000, even if the volatility of the new rally will be twice as less as the previous indices. In this case, the capitalization of the first cryptocurrency will rise above $1 trillion. It will allow bitcoin to strengthen its "macro equity" status, while ETH will be able to become a mainstream instrument, the expert thinks.

The price of bitcoin will go down following the stock market

Analyst Satoshi Flipper thinks. If the US shares continue the correction, the BTC price will fall to $7,300 before the middle of July, he writes. Satoshi Flipper points out that, by going below $9,400, the exchange rate has broken through the trend line that has been acting as a support one since May. The S&P 500 index fell down 2.79% this morning — the crypto market followed it as well, the trader points out. He adds that he has been holding the short position regarding bitcoin since the weekend.

Bitcoin brought 70 times more profit than indexes

Buy Shares experts compared the profitability of bitcoin and five leading world indexes. It turns out that over the past five years, BTC has generated an average of 70 times higher profit than indexes. During this period, the value of cryptocurrency increased by 3,400%. The NASDAQ index, which includes shares of all companies trading on the exchange of the same name, brought 96% in profit. The S&P 500 index, which includes 505 companies with the largest capitalization listed on US exchanges, grew by 46%. The Dow Jones industrial index showed a similar increase - by 42%. The lowest result was shown by the index of the British stock exchange FTSE 100, losing 7% in price.

Bitcoin whale transfers almost $1 billion for a 50 cents fee

A transaction in the amount of 101.8 thousand BTC (about $920 million) took place in the bitcoin blockchain. On June 27, an unknown person sent coins to an anonymous wallet. Then he transferred 5,000 BTC to one address, and the remaining 96,800 BTC to another. At the same time, the commission for each transfer amounted to about 50 cents - the whale paid $1.5 for all operations. The transaction was recorded by the Twitter bot BtcBlockBot.

Twitter approval of bitcoin at an annual low

The number of posts with the approval of bitcoin on Twitter fell to the lowest for this year - for a month and a half, the indicator slipped by half. According to Santiment, the day after the halving, the positive mention indicator set a maximum of 12 months at 781 mark. Now, this indicator is 327. At the same time, the total number of Bitcoin posts has also decreased, according to Bitinfocharts. On May 11, on the day of the halving, the number of references reached 82,838, and today it has dropped to 32,380. In Google, searches for bitcoin dropped by three times less after the halving.

Elon Musk denied rumors of cooperation with ethereum

Last year, actor William Shatner tweeted that he had been preparing to create an Ethereum-based product with Ilon Mask and Vitalik Buterin. Yesterday, Tesla’s CEO decided to reply to the tweet and said that he was working with a crypto project. “I’m not building anything on ethereum. Not for or against it, just don’t use it or own any,” Musk wrote. In 2019, the enrepreneur posted a post with the only word "Ethereum", but later said it was a joke. Musk also repeatedly spoke positively about bitcoin and reported that he owns 0.25 BTC.

Bitcoin miners' revenues plunge to an annual minimum

Last month, the profit of bitcoin miners plunged 23% to a minimum since March 2019. In May, miners earned $366 million, and in June they earned $281 million. The reason was the reduction in commissions and block rewards, CoinDesk analysts say. In May, after the halving, the mempool increased drastically, which lead to a growth in the size of commissions. By early June, the mempool decreased to its usual size, which led to a drop in commission fees. Last month, their share in the total income of miners was 8.3%, and in June this figure dropped to 4.3%.

Peter Schiff: the bubble of 2017 was the last one for bitcoin

Peter Schiff, Euro Pacific Capital CEO, once again criticized bitcoin as opposed to gold. He noted that gold shows better profitability, and the idea of long-term retention of bitcoin is crazy. “Since hitting its high in June of last year the price of Bitcoin has fallen by 33%. During that same time period the price of gold has risen by 27%. So, priced in gold Bitcoin has fallen by 53%. The long-term trend has clearly changed in gold’s favor. HODLers remain delusional,” Schiff tweeted. He added that the peak of the BTC bubble occurred in 2017, and now the cryptocurrency price is in a long-term downtrend.

CBDC will determine the future of money and cryptocurrencies

According to Guy Sheffield, Visa’s head of crypto. In the next ten years, the development of central bank digital currencies will affect the confidentiality, monetary sovereignty of states, geopolitics and the adoption of bitcoin. “I’d argue that central bank digital currency (CBDC) is one of the most important trends for the future of money and payments over the next decade. Regardless of anyone’s personal views of whether it’s good or bad, the reality is that global interest in it is not going away,” Sheffield tweeted. He noted that earlier single articles from central banks were issued on this topic, and now there is a non-stop flow of information from experts, scientists and organizations.

European companies favor Ethereum

European Blockchain startups most often choose the Ethereum platform, according to research by LeadBlock Partners. 27% of the projects are based on Ethereum, followed by Hyperledger (20%), Corda (16%) and Bitcoin (8%). Analysts note that the choice of blockchain depends on the area in which the company operates. Ethereum is preferred by startups from the real estate, cultural and art sectors since it is convenient to tokenize such assets on the platform. Hyperledger is popular in the healthcare, food and agricultural sectors, and Corda in the financial business.

The Block: Bitcoin popularity is far from peak

The massive spreading of bitcoin will come soon, according to the Block’s analysts. Currently, the popularity of the first cryptocurrency is far from the peak levels of 2017, when BTC was worth $20’000. Weekly trading volumes then amounted to $17 billion, and in 2020 their average level did not exceed $2.5 billion. In Google, searches for bitcoin dropped by 8 compared with the end of 2017, and the bitcoin page on Wikipedia was studied 30 times less. Cryptocurrency exchange accounts on Twitter gain subscribers 47 times slower: in January 2018, they received 254,000 new users, and in 2020, an average of 5,340 per month.
