Hoy vence el plazo para que Trump logre un paquete de ayuda antes de las elecciones



Este martes en horas de la noche vencerá el plazo en Estados Unidos (EE.UU.) para alcanzar un acuerdo de ayuda por $2,2 billones antes de las elecciones presidenciales del 3 de noviembre venidero.
El propósito de esta iniciativa es aprobar una ley que proporcione a hogares y empresas fondos adicionales contra el Covid-19.
La presidenta de la Cámara de Representantes de la nación norteamericana, de mayoría demócrata, Nancy Pelosi, dijo a la Casa Blanca el domingo que tiene hasta este 20 de octubre para llegar a un acuerdo de estímulo fiscal.
De lo contrario, es poco probable que se apruebe la ayuda antes del proceso electoral del próximo mes, informó The Wall Street Journal.
En una carta que envió a sus colegas demócratas, Pelosi comentó el estado de sus conversaciones con el secretario del Tesoro, Steven Mnuchin.
«Las negociaciones para el alivio del coronavirus continuaron durante el fin de semana, y el secretario Mnuchin envió el texto esperado sobre las pruebas. Si bien hubo algunas noticias alentadoras, queda mucho trabajo por hacer», señala en la misiva.
Agrega que es «optimista de que podamos llegar a un acuerdo antes de las elecciones. Con ese fin, escribimos un lenguaje a medida que negociamos las prioridades, de modo que estemos totalmente preparados para avanzar una vez que lleguemos a un acuerdo».

El monto y el motivo de la discordia

Los demócratas de la Cámara de Representantes esperan la aprobación de un paquete de 2,2 billones de dólares.
En su estrategia de campaña, los demócratas alegan la necesidad de «actuar con urgencia para proteger las vidas y los medios de subsistencia del pueblo estadounidense».
En su carta, Pelosi habla del «impacto en términos de la disparidad que enfrentan las comunidades de color».
«Un niño latino tiene ocho veces más probabilidades de tener que ir al hospital debido al Covid-19 que un niño blanco, y un niño negro tiene cinco veces más probabilidades. Queremos que todos nuestros niños estén protegidos», expresa.
Agrega que los niños se ven además afectados «por la negativa de la Casa Blanca de ampliar el Crédito Tributario por Hijos, el Crédito Tributario por Hijos y Dependientes y el Crédito Tributario por Ingreso del Trabajo, al tiempo que continúan los beneficios fiscales para algunos de los más ricos de Estados Unidos».
Si bien el presidente Donald Trump ha dicho que está preparado para negociar su propuesta, de 1,8 billones de dólares, la mayoría republicana en el Senado pretende aprobar un paquete mucho más modesto.
Si el paquete no se aprueba antes de las elecciones, podría ser en febrero de 2021 cuando ocurra, dijo al diario el representante Tom Reed (RN.Y.).

Conversaciones de última hora

Este lunes, Pelosi y Mnuchin, conversaron telefónicamente por cerca de una hora para reducir sus diferencias sobre el paquete de ayuda.
El subjefe de Personal de Pelosi, Drew Hammill, escribió en Twitter: «El Presidente sigue esperando que, al final del día del martes, tengamos claridad sobre si seremos capaces de aprobar un proyecto de ley antes de las elecciones”.
En esa llamada «continuaron reduciendo sus diferencias. El Presidente ha encargado a los titulares de los comités que reconcilien las diferencias con sus homólogos republicanos en áreas clave».

El paquete de estímulo y las criptomonedas

A mediados de mayo el valor de bitcoin superó los 9.500 dólares, tras la aprobación, en abril de este año, del proyecto de ley de paquete de estímulo masivo Covid-19 para la población de EE.UU., por un billón de dólares.
Este aumento pareció deberse a que muchos beneficiarios invirtieron su primer cheque de estímulo de $1.200 en la compra de bitcoins, informó Morocotacoin.
Se estima que debido a esas compras aumentó el precio del bitcoin, ya que para el 15 de abril se encontraba en 6.727 dólares y ya el 15 de mayo se ubicó en 9.523 dólares.
Ahora expertos en cripto mercado debaten si los estadounidenses harán lo mismo con un nuevo cheque de estímulo.
De hecho, a las 7:25 UTC este martes (3:25 am, hora de Venezuela), el precio del bitcoin rompió la barrera de los $11.850 por primera vez en casi siete semanas.
Datos de CryptoCompare muestran que el precio de la primera criptomoneda se cotizó una hora más tarde en $11.734, 2,3% más que en las últimas 24 horas.

Weekly Update: ParJar Swap private beta, Fantom Opera Network Special-fee Contract, SelfKey + ThreeFold, Open Staking live on Harmony…– 15 May - 21 May'20
Hey Parachuters! Seems like ages since I last posted a weekly update, right? Unfortunately, got super busy with IRL work and couldn’t keep up. But fret not! I finally scraped some time out today to get upto speed with all the news from the Parachute universe in May and June and organised them into a series of weekly updates like the ones I used to write earlier. But instead of posting them one by one everyday, thought it might be best to release them all at one go. So here's Part I of VI - All that happened at Parachute + partners from 15 May - 21 May'20:

The ParJar swap feature beta testing started this week with a call to testers far and wide. Click here for the latest update and stats on ParJar straight from Cap's mouth - "...it took almost two years of betas and growth to reach 1 million tips (March 7th) nd it’s taken 2 months to to add another 400k..". Amazing! The #par4par raffle continues with a 500k $PAR pool. Peace Love hosted a general knowledge trivia in TTR this week for 10k $PAR in prizes. Gamerboy’s random trivia and Victor’s “Big Trivia” in Tiproom were quite fun as well. Naj (who’s also this week’s Parena winner) hosted a six set quiz in TTR. Charlotte’s been hosting quizzes in a new format for quite some time now. This week too she held one in Tiproom. Jason started a #culturalweekend prompt with an invitation to Parachuters to share "about a cultural dance or ceremony" from their area. "Explain in detail about the dance and why it is important" for some cool $PAR. Among many of the cool stories shared by Parachuters included Nico’s Occitan music from Italy and Soleira’s Dancing Devils of Tinaquillo. Congratulations to Clinton’s FLI charity for partnering with Lumenthropy which is Stellar's philanthropic arm. Remember, all profits from the Parachute Shop go to FLI. Another crypto league with a 150k $PAR prize pot started this week. Gian’s Two-For-Tuesday was a free for all. To revisit all the awesome music posted for 2FT, check out the playlist made by Sebastian.

2020 Top Actors, Comedians, and Rappers Advocating Crypto industry

When the first cryptocurrency, bitcoin, was launched over two decades ago, there was a lot of skepticism trailing it. The digital currency remained a conversation amongst nerds alone. The concept of digital currency was hard to grasp by many people, and it took a while for people to join the crypto movement.
However, the crypto industry has grown and has begun to amass advocates from every corner of the world. Celebrities are joining the crypto movement and advocating for cryptocurrencies as the best investment choice and as the future currency of the world. Many celebrities lie Snoop Dog, and also Mike Tyson first bought the idea before it became globally accepted but many other actors, comedians, and rappers now advocate for the crypto industry and below are some of them:
Zuby
Zuby is one of the newest members of the crypto sphere. He made his involvement in the crypto industry public when he went on Crypto cousins bitcoin and cryptocurrencies podcast to discuss cryptocurrencies. Since then, he has continued to tweet about bitcoin on his twitter page.
Jimmy Jefferies
If you love a good laugh, then you must have heard of Jimmy Jefferies, Jefferies podcast is popular and listened to by thousands of people globally. In a new episode on June 30th, he reveals that he is more involved in cryptocurrencies than his team is aware of. He admits that he bought one bitcoin on the Robinhood app. This means Jefferies owns more bitcoins than Elon Musk does.
Serena William
There are few on this planet who don’t know Serena Williams, but only a few are aware of how involved in cryptocurrency this celebrity is. This tennis player opened a finance company called Serena Ventures and has invested in many projects, one of which is cryptocurrencies. Coinbase is a project Serena and her husband have continued to invest in Coinbase over the years.
Steven Seagal
If you’re a movie fan, you’ll love this one. In February, actor Steven Seagul’s involvement with Bitcoiin2Gen was made public. He has continually promoted digital currencies on his social media pages but was investigated by the US SEC for promoting cryptocurrencies in return for payments.
Bill Burr
Bill Burr, who is also amongst the top comedians in the world, especially popular for his comedy series on Netflix and his appearances on Joe Rogan’s podcast, has joined the bitcoin family. He claims to have been convinced by Anthony Pompliano, who simplified the concept for him.

Kim Kardashian
Reality TV Star Kim Kardashian is another celebrity in the long line of celebrities advocating for the crypto industry. She made her involvement public when Mathew Roszak tweeted that he was giving one bitcoin to Kim Kardashian. She confirmed this by replying that she has moved on to bitcoin.
Kanye West
That’s right! Kanye West, just like his wife Kim, is a big advocator for the crypto industry. He spoke first about bitcoin in 2018 on an interview with Charlamagne. Before the interview however, he first posted about crypto by tweeting ‘decentralize’ which signified his stand with the crypto industry. He has remained silent about his involvement with cryptocurrency since then but that doesn’t mean he’s done with crypto.
Akon
Akon, a Senegalese-American musician, expressed his support for crypto when he spoke at the 3rd anniversary of Binance along with other top stakeholders. Together with the CEO of Binance, Akon spoke on the adoption and future of crypto industry in Africa. He also introduced his cryptocurrency called Akoin which he planned to release soon. Now that he is the official owner of a city in Senegal which he calls the Akon Crypto City, he has built an economy around his crypto; Akoin.
50 Cent
50 cent is a famous rapper and was among the first top celebrities to wholeheartedly support cryptocurrencies. He publicized his support for cryptocurrencies to the delight of crypto enthusiasts by stating that he was accepting bitcoin as payment for his album.
Madonna
Madonna is one of the top cryptocurrency advocates since 2018. She uses cryptocurrencies for donations to her funding project ‘Raising Malawi’, which she uses to raise Malawi orphans. Ripple CEO is very much involved in the project also as a charity event was held where the collections were made in cryptocurrencies.

Final Note
No one knows if these celebrities have become crypto millionaires, but there’s an excellent chance that they are. There are probably several other celebrities out there who are already crypto fans but haven’t made it public yet. As the crypto movement gets more prominent, we’re bound to see new celebrities becoming crypto advocates real soon.

Crypto Banking Wars: Will Coinbase or Binance Become The Bank of The Future?

Crypto Banking Wars: Will Coinbase or Binance Become The Bank of The Future?
Can the early success of major crypto exchanges propel them to winning the broader consumer finance market?
https://reddit.com/link/i48t4q/video/v4eo10gom7f51/player
This is the first part of Crypto Banking Wars — a new series that examines what crypto-native company is most likely to become the bank of the future. Who is best positioned to reach mainstream adoption in consumer finance?
While crypto allows the world to get rid of banks, a bank will still very much be necessary for this powerful technology to reach the masses. We believe a crypto-native company, like Genesis Block, will become the bank of the future.
In an earlier series, Crypto-Powered, we laid out arguments for why crypto-native companies have a huge edge in the market. When you consider both the broad spectrum of financial use-cases and the enormous value unlocked through these DeFi protocols, you can see just how big of an unfair advantage blockchain tech becomes for companies who truly understand and leverage it. Traditional banks and fintech unicorns simply won’t be able to keep up.
The power players of consumer finance in the 21st century will be crypto-native companies who build with blockchain technology at their core.
The crypto landscape is still nascent. We’re still very much in the fragmented, unbundled phase of the industry lifecycle. Beyond what Genesis Block is doing, there are signs of other companies slowly starting to bundle financial services into what could be an all-in-one bank replacement.
So the key question that this series hopes to answer:
Which crypto-native company will successfully become the bank of the future?
We obviously think Genesis Block is well-positioned to win. But we certainly aren’t the only game in town. In this series, we’ll be doing an analysis of who is most capable of thwarting our efforts. We’ll look at categories like crypto exchanges, crypto wallets, centralized lending & borrowing services, and crypto debit card companies. Each category will have its own dedicated post.
Today we’re analyzing big crypto exchanges. The two companies we’ll focus on today are Coinbase (biggest American exchange) and Binance (biggest global exchange). They are the top two exchanges in terms of Bitcoin trading volume. They are in pole position to winning this market — they have a huge existing userbase and strong financial resources.
Will Coinbase or Binance become the bank of the future? Can their early success propel them to winning the broader consumer finance market? Is their growth too far ahead for anyone else to catch up? Let’s dive in.
https://preview.redd.it/lau4hevpm7f51.png?width=800&format=png&auto=webp&s=2c5de1ba497199f36aa194e5809bd86e5ab533d8

Binance

The most formidable exchange on the global stage is Binance (Crunchbase). All signs suggest they have significantly more users and a stronger balance sheet than Coinbase. No other exchange is executing as aggressively and relentlessly as Binance is. The cadence at which they are shipping and launching new products is nothing short of impressive. As Tushar Jain from Multicoin argues, Binance is Blitzscaling.
Here are some of the products that they’ve launched in the last 18 months. Only a few are announced but still pre-launch.
Binance is well-positioned to become the crypto-powered, all-in-one, bundled solution for financial services. They already have so many of the pieces. But the key question is:
Can they create a cohesive & united product experience?

Binance Weaknesses

Binance is strong, but they do have a few major weaknesses that could slow them down.
  1. Traders & Speculators Binance is currently very geared for speculators, traders, and financial professionals. Their bread-and-butter is trading (spot, margin, options, futures). Their UI is littered with depth charts, order books, candlesticks, and other financial concepts that are beyond the reach of most normal consumers. Their product today is not at all tailored for the broader consumer market. Given Binance’s popularity and strength among the pro audience, it’s unlikely that they will dumb down or simplify their product any time soon. That would jeopardize their core business. Binance will likely need an entirely new product/brand to go beyond the pro user crowd. That will take time (or an acquisition). So the question remains, is Binance even interested in the broader consumer market? Or will they continue to focus on their core product, the one-stop-shop for pro crypto traders?
  2. Controversies & Hot Water Binance has had a number of controversies. No one seems to know where they are based — so what regulatory agencies can hold them accountable? Last year, some sensitive, private user data got leaked. When they announced their debit card program, they had to remove mentions of Visa quickly after. And though the “police raid” story proved to be untrue, there are still a lot of questions about what happened with their Shanghai office shut down (where there is smoke, there is fire). If any company has had a “move fast and break things” attitude, it is Binance. That attitude has served them well so far but as they try to do business in more regulated countries like America, this will make their road much more difficult — especially in the consumer market where trust takes a long time to earn, but can be destroyed in an instant. This is perhaps why the Binance US product is an empty shell when compared to their main global product.
  3. Disjointed Product Experience Because Binance has so many different teams launching so many different services, their core product is increasingly feeling disjointed and disconnected. Many of the new features are sloppily integrated with each other. There’s no cohesive product experience. This is one of the downsides of executing and shipping at their relentless pace. For example, users don’t have a single wallet that shows their balances. Depending on if the user wants to do spot trading, margin, futures, or savings… the user needs to constantly be transferring their assets from one wallet to another. It’s not a unified, frictionless, simple user experience. This is one major downside of the “move fast and break things” approach.
  4. BNB token Binance raised $15M in a 2017 ICO by selling their $BNB token. The current market cap of $BNB is worth more than $2.6B. Financially this token has served them well. However, given how BNB works (for example, their token burn), there are a lot of open questions as to how BNB will be treated with US security laws. Their Binance US product so far is treading very lightly with its use of BNB. Their token could become a liability for Binance as it enters more regulated markets. Whether the crypto community likes it or not, until regulators get caught up and understand the power of decentralized technology, tokens will still be a regulatory burden — especially for anything that touches consumers.
  5. Binance Chain & Smart Contract Platform Binance is launching its own smart contract platform soon. Based on compatibility choices, they have their sights aimed at the Ethereum developer community. It’s unclear how easy it’ll be to convince developers to move to Binance chain. Most of the current developer energy and momentum around smart contracts is with Ethereum. Because Binance now has their own horse in the race, it’s unlikely they will ever decide to leverage Ethereum’s DeFi protocols. This could likely be a major strategic mistake — and hubris that goes a step too far. Binance will be pushing and promoting protocols on their own platform. The major risk of being all-in on their own platform is that they miss having a seat on the Ethereum rocket ship — specifically the growth of DeFi use-cases and the enormous value that can be unlocked. Integrating with Ethereum’s protocols would be either admitting defeat of their own platform or competing directly against themselves.

Binance Wrap Up

I don’t believe Binance is likely to succeed with a homegrown product aimed at the consumer finance market. Their current product — which is focused heavily on professional traders and speculators — is unlikely to become the bank of the future. If they wanted to enter the broader consumer market, I believe it’s much more likely that they will acquire a company that is getting early traction. They are not afraid to make acquisitions (Trust, JEX, WazirX, DappReview, BxB, CoinMarketCap, Swipe).
However, never count CZ out. He is a hustler. Binance is executing so aggressively and relentlessly that they will always be on the shortlist of major contenders.
https://preview.redd.it/mxmlg1zqm7f51.png?width=800&format=png&auto=webp&s=2d900dd5ff7f3b00df5fe5a48305d57ebeffaa9a

Coinbase

The crypto-native company that I believe is more likely to become the bank of the future is Coinbase (crunchbase). Their dominance in America could serve as a springboard to winning the West (Binance has a stronger foothold in Asia). Coinbase has more than 30M users. Their exchange business is a money-printing machine. They have a solid reputation as it relates to compliance and working with regulators. Their CEO is a longtime member of the crypto community. They are rumored to be going public soon.

Coinbase Strengths

Let’s look at what makes them strong and a likely contender for winning the broader consumer finance market.
  1. Different Audience, Different Experience Coinbase has been smart to create a unique product experience for each audience — the pro speculator crowd and the common retail user. Their simple consumer version is at Coinbase.com. That’s the default. Their product for the more sophisticated traders and speculators is at Coinbase Pro (formerly GDAX). Unlike Binance, Coinbase can slowly build out the bank of the future for the broad consumer market while still having a home for their hardcore crypto traders. They aren’t afraid to have different experiences for different audiences.
  2. Brand & Design Coinbase has a strong product design team. Their brand is capable of going beyond the male-dominated crypto audience. Their product is clean and simple — much more consumer-friendly than Binance. It’s clear they spend a lot of time thinking about their user experience. Interacting directly with crypto can sometimes be rough and raw (especially for n00bs). When I was at Mainframe we hosted a panel about Crypto UX challenges at the DevCon4 Dapp Awards. Connie Yang (Head of Design at Coinbase) was on the panel. She was impressive. Some of their design philosophies will bode well as they push to reach the broader consumer finance market.
  3. USDC Stablecoin Coinbase (along with Circle) launched USDC. We’ve shared some stats about its impressive growth when we discussed DeFi use-cases. USDC is quickly becoming integrated with most DeFi protocols. As a result, Coinbase is getting a front-row seat at some of the most exciting things happening in decentralized finance. As Coinbase builds its knowledge and networks around these protocols, it could put them in a favorable position to unlock incredible value for their users.
  4. Early Signs of Bundling Though Coinbase has nowhere near as many products & services as Binance, they are slowly starting to add more financial services that may appeal to the broader market. They are now letting depositors earn interest on USDC (also DAI & Tezos). In the UK they are piloting a debit card. Users can now invest in crypto with dollar-cost-averaging. It’s not much, but it’s a start. You can start to see hints of a more bundled solution around financial services.

Coinbase Weaknesses

Let’s now look at some things that could hold them back.
  1. Slow Cadence In the fast-paced world of crypto, and especially when compared to Binance, Coinbase does not ship very many new products very often. This is perhaps their greatest weakness. Smaller, more nimble startups may run circles around them. They were smart to launch Coinbase Ventures where tey invest in early-stage startups. They can now keep an ear to the ground on innovation. Perhaps their cadence is normal for a company of their size — but the Binance pace creates quite the contrast.
  2. Lack of Innovation When you consider the previous point (slow cadence), it’s unclear if Coinbase is capable of building and launching new products that are built internally. Most of their new products have come through acquisitions. Their Earn.com acquisition is what led to their Earn educational product. Their acquisition of Xapo helped bolster their institutional custody offering. They acqui-hired a team to help launch their staking infrastructure. Their acquisition of Cipher Browser became an important part of Coinbase Wallet. And recently, they acquired Tagomi — a crypto prime brokerage. Perhaps most of Coinbase’s team is just focused on improving their golden goose, their exchange business. It’s unclear. But the jury is still out on if they can successfully innovate internally and launch any homegrown products.
  3. Talent Exodus There have been numerous reports of executive turmoil at Coinbase. It raises a lot of questions about company culture and vision. Some of the executives who departed include COO Asiff Hirji, CTO Balaji Srinivasan, VP & GM Adam White, VP Eng Tim Wagner, VP Product Jeremy Henrickson, Sr Dir of Eng Namrata Ganatra, VP of Intl Biz Dan Romero, Dir of Inst Sales Christine Sandler, Head of Trading Hunter Merghart, Dir Data Science Soups Ranjan, Policy Lead Mike Lempres, Sr Compliance Vaishali Mehta. Many of these folks didn’t stay with Coinbase very long. We don’t know exactly why it’s happening —but when you consider a few of my first points (slow cadence, lack of innovation), you have to wonder if it’s all related.
  4. Institutional Focus As a company, we are a Coinbase client. We love their institutional offering. It’s clear they’ve been investing a lot in this area. A recent Coinbase blog post made it clear that this has been a focus: “Over the past 12 months, Coinbase has been laser-focused on building out the types of features and services that our institutional customers need.” Their Tagomi acquisition only re-enforced this focus. Perhaps this is why their consumer product has felt so neglected. They’ve been heavily investing in their institutional services since May 2018. For a company that’s getting very close to an IPO, it makes sense that they’d focus on areas that present strong revenue opportunities — as they do with institutional clients. Even for big companies like Coinbase, it’s hard to have a split focus. If they are “laser-focused” on the institutional audience, it’s unlikely they’ll be launching any major consumer products anytime soon.

Coinbase Wrap Up

At Genesis Block, we‘re proud to be working with Coinbase. They are a fantastic company. However, I don’t believe that they’ll succeed in building their own product for the broader consumer finance market. While they have incredible design, there are no signs that they are focused on or capable of internally building this type of product.
Similar to Binance, I think it’s far more likely that Coinbase acquires a promising young startup with strong growth.

Honorable Mentions

Other US-based exchanges worth mentioning are Kraken, Gemini, and Bittrex. So far we’ve seen very few signs that any of them will aggressively attack broader consumer finance. Most are going in the way of Binance — listing more assets and adding more pro tools like margin and futures trading. And many, like Coinbase, are trying to attract more institutional customers. For example, Gemini with their custody product.

Wrap Up

Coinbase and Binance have huge war chests and massive reach. For that alone, they should always be considered threats to Genesis Block. However, their products are very, very different than the product we’re building. And their approach is very different as well. They are trying to educate and onboard people into crypto. At Genesis Block, we believe the masses shouldn’t need to know or care about it. We did an entire series about this, Spreading Crypto.
Most everyone needs banking — whether it be to borrow, spend, invest, earn interest, etc. Not everyone needs a crypto exchange. For non-crypto consumers (the mass market), the differences between a bank and a crypto exchange are immense. Companies like Binance and Coinbase make a lot of money on their crypto exchange business. It would be really difficult, gutsy, and risky for any of them to completely change their narrative, messaging, and product to focus on the broader consumer market. I don’t believe they would ever risk biting the hand that feeds them.
In summary, as it relates to a digital bank aimed at the mass market, I believe both Coinbase and Binance are much more likely to acquire a startup in this space than they are to build it themselves. And I think they would want to keep the brand/product distinct and separate from their core crypto exchange business.
So back to the original question, is Coinbase and Binance a threat to Genesis Block? Not really. Not today. But they could be, and for that, we want to stay close to them.

During the coronavirus, are cryptocurrencies suffering or taking advantage of the moment?

During the coronavirus, are cryptocurrencies suffering or taking advantage of the moment?
Up until just a short time ago cryptocurrencies were considered to be a sort of safe haven. This idea has gained greater strength in the measure in which, during recent periods of crisis and instability, the Bitcoin has risen in value; however, now, with the pandemic of the coronavirus hitting the entire planet, the freefall of the cryptocurrency quotes most used these days shows an uncertain scenario and demystified the option of “safe haven”.
https://preview.redd.it/yspkat1aan151.jpg?width=1280&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=e692f86d3141a021fce448812f3a3815b886ccb5
Halfway through February, before the before the pandemic became widespread, Bitcoin’s quote reached over 10,200 dollars, its highest quote during the last seven months; but, from that moment on the decline has been resounding – around 40% - so that its present value is in the region of 6,300 dollars. In its fall, Bitcoin dragged other cryptocurrencies along with it, like Ethereum which lost 29% as went from 194 dollars to 137, and Ripple, which ceded 22%.

What provoked the decline in prices?

Cryptocurrencies operate contrary to the traditional financial system, because they don’t need banks; however, this doesn’t make them immune to the economic chaos unleashed by the pandemic.
In China’s case, the country where the virus arose, the analysts waited for the launch of the digital yuan; however, the Wuhan crisis will postpone the presentation of the new cryptoasset between three and six months, since, according to YuanJie Zhang, the director of operations of Conflux, “The majority of the budget’s resources were spent in containing the virus”.
For Zhang, the coronavirus hasn’t had a negative impact on the cryptocurrency mining industry in China, because the majority of these farms continued working and never hired a lot of people.
Nevertheless, the fall in prices was evident. What could have provoked it? This continues to be a subject that divides the experts, since more than a few feel that there are no clear elements that explain the downward trend, because cryptocurrencies aren’t affected by the prices of petroleum and or the global recession.
According to various experts, the decline was expected because Bitcoin, for example, saw its price rise 100% during the last six months and many investors opted to sell them now to cover the losses that they suffered in their portfolios from other assets with variable yield.
Others look for a link to the pandemic and analyze that the collapse in prices was produced at the moment when the bonds and shares fell around the world. The investors suffered so many losses that they had to liquidate assets that, at this time, have enough value to cover their obligations.
“Investors are liquidating alternative assets like gold and cryptocurrencies to comply with obligations of the market and to create cash reserves, a theme that is similar to what happened during the last financial crisis,” stated Matthew Dibb, co-founder and director of Stack operations.
A variation is that the retail investors have sold their cryptoassets so that this way they can obtain money that will allow them to obtain more food, medical supplies and take on other monthly expenses, since extended quarantines impede them from working and, therefore, generate income.

Blockchain initiatives against the coronavirus

The donations in cryptocurrencies to support the most affected areas with medical supplies or to encourage research about the coronavirus have increased in recent times.
The Binance exchange donated 1.4 million dollars to the Chinese authorities for medical supplies. The project was called “Binance for Wuhan”. In addition, Binance Charity continues to be wrapped up in raising five million dollars in cryptocurrencies that make it possible to buy essential medical articles for the countries most affected by the coronavirus.
The crowdfunding platform The Giving Block launched a campaign for donating cryptoassets, in coordination with Gitcoin, an open code reward platform in the Ethereum blockchain.
The decentralized Alliance of AI presented the #COVIDathon, considered the first hackathon designed to help the medical industry to search for solutions that allow them to battle the COVID-19. This alliance depends on more than 50 members of the blockchain.com space, Ocean Protocol, Aragon, Shivom and SingularityNet.
Ripple Labs donated 200,000 dollars to two non-profit organizations, Tipping Point Community and Silicon Valley Community Foundation, to contain the propagation of COVID-19 in the United States.
The Napoli Blockchain Association undertook a crypto fund raiser that made the purchase of a large amount of appliance equipment possible for strengthening medical attention in Italy.

Weekly Wrap 03/04

Market News
In the earlier part of the week, Bitcoin broke down to the $5800 level but managed to successfully close back above $6400. As expected, we eventually saw a move to the $7200 level that was followed by a swift rejection. Recent CME data released indicates that large-sized traders doubled down on their 2020 short positions between $8200 and $10,700. We are thus expecting the $8000 region to act as a large resistance level in the future.
In a new report, Binance Research found a ‘moderate’ positive correlation between Bitcoin and US equities during the first quarter of 2020, with neither being correlated to gold. Amongst their findings was the conclusion that despite Bitcoin displaying a positive correlation with US equities, this correlation coefficient remains unlikely to persist in the medium to long term as it was merely a result of global investors' flight to liquidity across all asset classes in the wake of COVID-19. This is positive news for investors who continue to use cryptoasset investments for diversification purposes.
Global markets are also up following Trump’s comments that crude oil production will likely be cut back. The announcement sent Brent crude levels up by over 25%. The move comes as oil was already climbing after Beijing instructed government agencies to start buying cheap crude for its strategic reserves.
