Social media influencers made people believe that quantitative easing is bullish for bitcoin. The recent selloff obliterated this narrative. HODLers now rely on the halving and the stock to flow ratio to ignite a bull market. Over the last few months, social media influencers on Twitter peddled that quantitative easing (QE) is bitcoin’s rocket fuel. The rationale is simple. If governments can print billions of dollars, some of it will eventually find its way to bitcoin. Additionally, QE may help people realize that governments can do what they wish with the monetary supply, whereas bitcoin has a fixed supply. The Federal Reserve pumping money into the system. | Source: Twitter People were led to believe that that’s how the system works. Influencers amassed likes, retweets and follows by propagating a marketable idea. They did so with very little evidence to support their assertions. Recently, evidence regarding the correlation of QE and bitcoin price surfaced. A widely-followed economist was quick to point out that such a connection does not exist.

Bitcoin price is quickly losing the support levels it was enjoying not very long ago, and now the situation is not looking to get any better with year quickly coming to a close. Increased volatility was experienced 15th November in the Bitcoin (BTC) market. The price of Bitcoin moved in the range of five percent, as the sellers were able to test the price mark of $8500. In the short time-frame, one can see that after the test of the BTC price, the buyers responded sharply with the USD 8800’s test. Bitcoin price movement: What to expect? As the trading volumes seem too small, keeping in mind the significance of the $8300-8500 Bitcoin price zone. There could be various reasons such as the buyers not finding the price zone interesting, thereby, the drop in prices could continue. Alternatively, buyers could have been waiting for a power demonstration from the sellers in order to understand if they are adequately exhausted and are able to resist the counter-attacks from the buyers.

By Dmitriy Gurkovskiy, author at RoboForex Blog On Friday, December 13th, the Tron cryptocurrency stopped falling, trading around $0.0138. On D1, the correctional growth ends and falling continues. It was additionally supported by a Black Cross on the MACD. The goal of decline remains at the fractal support level of $0.0110. A breakout of this level is not excluded, but a bounce off the support level and growth to $0.0200 looks more possible. On H4, the quotations are moving along the resistance level, which may reveal the weakness of the current dynamics. At the same time, the Stochastic is forming a Gold Cross in the oversold area, which, in its turn, may signal a breakout of the local resistance line near $0.0141. The breakout can open the way to the projection resistance line and to the level of $0.0179.

China’s military could implement a blockchain rewards system to manage personnel data and incentivize its workforce, the Global Times reported on Nov. 18. Citing a People’s Liberation Army (PLA) Daily report, the Global Times underscores that the blockchain system would likely not involve financial incentives, but would be used as an innovation strategy for the military’s management. Non-financial incentives The PLA is reportedly interested in using an immutable and secure blockchain-based system to manage personnel data; spanning records such as military training, career path, missions undertaken and performance reports. The system could be tokenized to offer soldiers non-financial incentives, which could be recuperated for rewards within the scheme. These tokens would serve as “objective evaluations,” the PLA Daily has reportedly noted. An anonymous source familiar with the PLA’s administration is cited by the Global Times as saying that the main distinction between the proposed blockchain system and existing reward systems would likely be not only the security the innovative technology confers, but also greater immediacy: “It sounds similar to a KPI system that will give feedback to the troops very…Nov 18, 2019
The Lisk (LSK) project, one of the most high-profile ICOs from 2016, came upon hard times. Despite the relatively solid backing, LISK ended up having troubles keeping all of its staff. Loses Team to Layoffs, Developers Leaving Lisk’s team was one of the most significant features of the project, and the startup held offices in Berlin. But the long downturn in crypto asset prices led to a drive to make a leaner operation.

This concludes the recent wave of terminations you may have observed. We are now ready to go completely dedicated into 2020 with a solid team of 31 individuals on the Lightcurve side Redditors noted that the most recent layoffs were signs of further problems with the project. Lisk also lost some of its delegates, and the previously promising network is now seen as a broken project. Lisk was supposed to be…Dec 13, 2019

Smartlands, the next-generation blockchain-based global investment, and digital banking ecosystem, announced today it will be expanding its legal framework in order to create a broader set of options for high-net-worth individuals. As it was announced at the beginning of 2020, Smartlands will align itself primarily with the interests of high-net-worth individuals, family offices, and institutional investors. Therefore, the company plans on utilizing the Investment Fund structure based on the Liechtenstein legislation under the EU regulatory directives. “Crowdfunding is a very exciting area of fundraising, particularly in the UK with the country’s dense financial markets and tight regulations. Those preconditions allow us to involve all types of retail investors in campaigns for tokenized shares in virtually any asset class,” says Yaroslava Tkalich, Smartlands CMO. “We remain believers in crowdfunding,” says Ilia Obraztsov, Smartlands CEO, “ but dwelling on our past successes is not in Smartlands’ book. We’re excited about the possibilities the Liechtenstein Blockchain Act presents to investors and issuers in regards to direct tokenization of any asset using blockchain tokens as containers for any assets.
