​火星分析师丁佳永:多头出现反扑,BTC能否站稳一万大关

BTC已经在9500上下荡了一个星期,不少朋友等待拉升的心情也从耐心变成了焦急,今日BTC在向上震荡的过程中偶有回落,在跌至9600附近时迅速反弹,现阶段不断试探9800附近阻力后有将要突破迹象,日线图上布林带继续向内收缩。可以看出多空力量在10000大关口以下的位置争夺十分激烈。5日均线也已经站稳前期关键点位9500上方,在停止回落之后,多头势能有所回升,后续将扮演下方支撑角色,虽然价格上行力度较缓,但也有不错的入场收益机会。

   大饼走势上继续延续昨日的震荡走势进行区间调整,昨日最低触及9400一线支撑,今日则再度试探9500后出现反弹,晚间空头放弃发力,走势伺机回到10000,在早间突破9700美元后多头依旧蠢蠢欲动,继续向上反弹,目前价位持续向上突破9900美元,短期内已经不用担心会深度回落,走势依旧如佳永所说,处于一个小区间的震荡上行,下方触及支撑可以考虑跟进多单,待上攻至10000美元后遇阻离场。附图指标上,MACD处于0轴附近横向整理,并有向上反勾,整体走势仍然处于关键区域的震荡上行走势。操作上建议回调做多,盈利点位关注10000。

   ETH依旧承压于220一线,今日出现小幅回落,目前价位处于210美元之上,也是佳永强调的ETH关键支撑附近,一旦跌破恐怕会带动BTC同步回落,可以说也是较为危险的位置,目前同大饼一样,会慢慢将价位稳定在213美元附近做突破状态,待突破迹象转弱就会进入震荡走势中;操作以低位跟多为主,210-213美元附近的支撑区域跟进即可。更多主流币即时指导建议可向佳永及时咨询。

英国发布加密监管指南,证券化代币进入监管范围

英国金融行为监管局(FCA)周三发布了加密资产监管指南,明确了哪些代币属于其监管范围内。

该指南中的大多数规则都是其于今年1月份发布的公众意见咨询文件中的内容。正如人们所预期的那样,该指南并没有改变太多目前的加密监管格局,只是指明了某些类型的加密资产在何时属于现有类别。

比特币和以太坊等真正的加密货币被FCA归类为“交易代币”,虽然适用于反洗钱规则,但并不受到监管。

FCA还表示,此前发布的咨询文件收到了92份来自银行、行业协会和加密交易所的回复。FCA表示,大多数反馈都表示支持这些规则。

最为重要的是,本指南提供了证券化代币的定义。这些资产在发行后的行为类似于股票或债务工具,还包括所有权,因此属于“特定投资”这一类别,所以属于FCA的监管范围。几乎反馈都认可监管机构对证券化代币在监管范围方面的评估。

相反,公用事业代币不会授予持有者相应的权利,因此与受监管的金融工具不同。其通常不属于FCA的监管范围,除非该代币符合电子货币的定义且属于新的电子货币代币类别。

FCA表示,“任何不属于证券化代币或电子货币的代币都是不受监管的。但是,市场参与者应注意,某些使用代币的活动可能会受到监管。”此外,某些稳定币也可能符合电子货币的定义,因此也会受到FCA(其授权是消费者和投资者保护)的监管。

不过,FCA还是表示,“市场参与者应该使用本指南作为了解他们应该如何处理某些加密资产的第一步,但是准备的判断只能根据具体情况进行判断。”

FCA战略与竞争执行董事Christopher Woolard在一份声明中说,

“这是一个小型、复杂和不断发展的市场,其中涵盖了非常广泛的活动。今天的指南将有助于澄清哪些加密活动属于我们的监管范围。”

11年一遇!美联储自比特币诞生以来首次降息!

作者 Xiu MU

北京时间8月1日凌晨,美联储自2008年金融危机以来首次降息,这也是比特币诞生以来首次经历美联储降息。

美联储主席鲍威尔在现场直播公告中表示,美联储将降息0.25%。美国至7月31日利率上限为2.25%,下限为2%。在其发布的声明中还表示,“由于经济前景不确定性持续发酵,美联储不得不采取适度行动。降息的决定是基于全球发展和通胀压力而做出的”。

除了降息之外,美联储的其他政策还包括将于8月1日结束缩表计划,结束时间早于此前计划。此外,美联储宣布将贴现率从3%降至2.75%,将超额准备金率从2.35%调整到2.10%。

在新闻发布会上,鲍威尔表示这是经济周期中的正常调整,目前的降息决定不意味着漫长降息周期的开始,但美联储依然可能再次降息。他还表示,考虑到保险和风险管理等因素,现阶段采取更加宽松的政策是合适的。

消息公布之后,全球市场均迅速做出反应。国际金银、美元指数和非美货币均呈短线震荡,加密货币市场开始小幅震荡上行。

受该消息影响,周三美国股市大幅下跌。道琼斯工业平均指数收盘下跌333.75点,跌幅为1.2%,收于26864.27点,其一度下跌多达478点。标准普尔500指数下跌1.1%,收于2980.38点。纳斯达克综合指数下跌1.2%至8175.42点。道琼斯指数以及标准普尔500指数创下自5月31日以来的最大单日跌幅。纳斯达克指数创下6月底以来最大单日跌幅。

而eToro的高级分析师Mati Greenspan表示,随着美联储的降息,比特币的价格会继续上涨。他认为利率下调最终会鼓励大企业主借入用于投资企业的资金,这反过来又会影响到更多的人口,提高了资金的流动速度和可用性。当更多人手中有大量资金时,更多的资金会被用于一些小规模的投资,比如购买加密货币。对比特币的更多需求将最终将提高比特币的价格。

Rain Becomes First Regulated Cryptocurrency Exchange in the Middle East

/latest/2019/07/Rain-Becomes-First-Regulated-Cryptocurrency-Exchange-in-The-Middle-East/

Rain.bh launched on July 31 of this year, and became the first Middle Eastern cryptocurrency exchange to obtain regulatory licensing to operate within the region. Alongside the launch, Rain also announced the closure of a seed round of $2.5 million.

The Bahrain-based cryptocurrency exchange received a Crypto-Asset Module (CRA) license from the Central Bank of Bahrain (CBB). The licensing comprises the first instance in which a cryptocurrency exchange has been granted regulatory approval to operate within a Middle Eastern nation.

Rain Licensed Following Two-Year Regulatory Sandbox Program

Rain first contacted the CBB during February 2017. Shortly thereafter, the exchange became the first company to enter into the CBB’s Regulatory Sandbox Program, during which the company spent two years working closely with the regulator to provide policy recommendations from the perspective of the crypto industry.

Rain also announced the closure of a $2.5 million funding round, which was led by BitMEX Ventures and Kuwait-based crypto fund, Blockwater. The seed round also saw participation from regional entities Vision Ventures, Taibah Valley, and 500 Startups MENA, in addition to CMT Digital, Compound.finance, Cumberland Mining’ Mike Komarnsky, Aaron Lasher and Aaron Voisine of BRD, and Jimmy Song.

Arthur Hayes, the co-founder and chief executive officer of BitMEX, stated: 

As the first licensed cryptocurrency exchange in the Middle East, Rain has an unprecedented opportunity to tap into the incredible potential that cryptocurrency trading will bring to the region. We believe that Rain will bring greater diversification to Middle-Eastern traders with its exchange offering and experienced team, and we are thrilled to contribute to this defining moment.

BitMEX and Blockwater Lead Fundraising Round

In a blog post, Rain stated: “With this license, [Rain] has become the first encrypted currency trading platform in the Middle East to be fully licensed by a regulatory entity and join a limited range of internationally recognized platforms for currency trading.”

The exhcnage added that through licensing it demonstrated “commitment to the terms of the encrypted assets unit in terms of capital adequacy, cybersecurity, insurance, reporting, governance and other matters that ensure our readiness to provide our services to both institutional and individual clients.”

Rain was founded in 2016 by Yehia Badawy, Abdullah Almoaiqel, AJ Nelson and Joseph Dallago.

Singapore’s Central Bank Warns Citizens Against Cryptocurrency Exchange Scam

Singapore’s Central Bank Warns Citizens Against Cryptocurrency Exchange Scam

The Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS), the apex bank of the country, has warned investors to be wary of a scam bitcoin investment website that has been soliciting for funds from members of the public by using false statements purportedly made by Goh Chok Tong, the former Prime Minister of Singapore, according to a press release on July 31, 2019.

Bitcoin Thieves Deceiving Investors 

Per a statement released by the MAS, bad actors have devised a new means of defrauding unsuspecting crypto investors in the region.

Specifically, the MAS says a scam bitcoin trading website called “Bitcoin Loophole” has been using false statements, purportedly made by Goh Chok Tong, to lure gullible investors into pumping in their hard-earned money into their illegal project.

The site promises to automatically execute trades on behalf of users who make an initial deposit of $250 and it also asks potential investors for their credit card and bank account details.

The MSA declared:

“The website’s [Bitcoin Loophole] write up about Bitcoins references statements purportedly made by ESM Goh which are either false or have been taken out of context and used in a misleading way,”

MAS Warns Investors

Though the MAS failed to state whether Singaporeans actually fell victim to the fake crypto investment scheme, it has however advised citizens to be wary of the site and avoid entering their financial details into the forms on the platform.

It has also urged investors to promptly report suspicious websites and crypto investment schemes to the police.

Unlike nations such as India and China, Singapore has a liberal stance towards bitcoin and altcoins even though cryptocurrencies are treated as “goods” in the state instead of a legal tender.

Crypto criminals have often tried to leverage the country’s vibrant cryptospace to launch investment schemes aimed at defrauding local cryptocurrency newbies, however, the MAS has been working hard to curb the activities these bad eggs.

In January 2019, the MAS published a statement notifying investors of fraudulent websites claiming to be under the Singapore government and trying to lure people into investing in a “shitcoin” they claim is the official crypto of the state.

Despite these challenges, the government of Singapore remains determined to make life easier for crypto investors and maintain its status as a blockchain technology hub.

Earlier this month, BTCManager informed that Singaporean authorities were looking to implement tax exemptions for bitcoin and other virtual currencies that function as payment tokens.
