Le Bitcoin Trader a grimpé à 19860 dollars, battant de quelques dollars les précédents records de tous les temps.

La récente reprise semble être alimentée par une demande croissante des investisseurs institutionnels.
Une fermeture de chandelier de 4 heures au-dessus ou en dessous de 19500 $ déterminera où BTC se dirige ensuite.

Le Bitcoin a atteint un nouveau sommet historique pour la première fois depuis la mi-décembre 2017. Alors que la spéculation monte sur de nouveaux gains à l’horizon, de multiples mesures en chaîne indiquent une forte baisse.

Briser de nouveaux sommets de tous les temps

Bitcoin a réussi à récupérer toutes les pertes subies après le retracement de 17% du 25 novembre.

Même si plus de 200000 traders ont été liquidés lors de la dernière correction sur le marché des crypto-monnaies, les investisseurs n’ont pas attendu longtemps pour réintégrer leurs positions longues.

La hausse de la pression d’achat a vu le BTC augmenter de plus de 22%. Il est passé de 16 200 dollars le 26 novembre à un nouveau record de 19 860 dollars.

Paolo Ardoino , directeur technique de Bitfinex, soutient que la récente action des prix peut être attribuée à la demande croissante des investisseurs institutionnels.

«L’ascension de Bitcoin aujourd’hui à un nouveau record absolu de 19 844 $ captivera. Les fondamentaux qui ont alimenté ce rallye, notamment la présence croissante des investisseurs institutionnels, ont néanmoins une conséquence bien plus grande. Le Bitcoin est encore naissant, et même des allocations relativement petites dans la classe d’actifs provenant de fonds d’investissement peuvent avoir un impact sismique.

Si la pression d’achat continue de monter , Bitcoin pourrait atteindre 23000 $.

Une clôture de chandelier de 4 heures au-dessus de 19 500 $ ajoutera de la crédibilité aux perspectives optimistes car elle augmente les chances de cette reprise potentielle.

Today, the price of Bitcoin plummeted by 12%. The market’s leading crypto-currency is trading below USD 17,000.

The crypto market is in the red. The crypto market is in the red. When the leading crypt currency by market value fell from over USD 19,300 to USD 16,320.

Thus registering a drop of -12.39% in the last 24 hours. According to our internal online crypto tool, the price is quoted at USD 16,700.

This drop in the price of Bitcoin Pro comes just when the digital currency was close to reaching new all-time highs. That would exceed what was seen at the end of 2017.

Although this generated surprise among enthusiasts and investors. Analysts point out that this was to be expected given the route that Bitcoin took to reach USD 19,000 in the last few days.

They described this fall as a correction of the market in the face of what seemed to be a sustained rise. This is precisely because of the departure of certain investors who are looking to secure their profits in the short and/or medium term.
Main altcoins also registered, as well as Bitcoin, a fall on November 26th

The fact that the price of Bitcoin plummeted this Thursday It also led to a sort of domino effect among the main altcoins of the ecosystem. These are also going down this November 26th with quite remarkable percentage reductions.

Among the main altcoins with falls above two digits we have the cases of Ethereum (ETH) -15.99%, XRP -29.32%, Bitcoin Cash (BCH) -23.91%. And many more like Chainlink (LINK), Litecoin (LTC), Cardano (ADA), Polkadot (DOT), Binance Coin (BNB), Stellar (XLM), Bitcoin SV (BSV), EOS, TRON (TRX), Monero (XMR), among others.

Bitcoin rates are still low despite the price increase, but Vitalik says it’s only a matter of time

Despite the sudden increase in Bitcoin to re-test its 2017 highs. A combination of low chain transactions and reduced retail speculation has kept transaction fees low.

Ethereum (ETH) co-founder Vitalik Buterin doesn’t think Bitcoin’s current low rates will last. In a Twitter thread, the co-founder of Ethereum suggested that an inevitable increase in transaction fees will drive out most users:

I would say it’s more like „why do Bitcoin’s unique features matter given that any wide adoption scenario will lead to base chain fees pricing out most of those users and it’s proving hard to extend those features to the L2s intended to circumvent those limitations?
– vitalik.eth (@VitalikButerin) November 25, 2020

„Why are Bitcoin’s unique features important given that any scenario of wide adoption will lead to base chain rates discounting most of those users and it’s proving difficult to extend those features to L2s intended to circumvent those limitations,“ Vitalik Buterin said in a tweet.

However, the data do not suggest that high rates are likely in the current environment. To understand what is happening in the background It is important to look at the number of transactions that are processed, the value of these transactions, and the amount of BTC that is retained over the long term.

In short…

Coinbase is experiencing another disruption of its website and mobile applications, a re-emergence of a problem that seems to plague the leading crypto currency exchange every time the price and volume of Bitcoin increases.
After suspending all user withdrawals for five weeks, the OKEx kryptonie exchange resumed its services at 8:00 am UTC on November 26.
Teams representing the mathematics and science departments of the universities of Cambridge and Oxford are competing to design cryptocommerce algorithms.

 

Bitcoin is in a wedge formation which could determine the further course of the upward trend.

Bitcoin’s (BTC) current climber seems to be taking a short breather after reaching an annual high so far of USD 15,960 on 5 November.

In the one-hour and four-hour charts, the price contracts in a wedge formation that has found solid support at USD 15,500. Bitcoin must now break through the $15,750 mark to make another attempt to jump above $16,000.

With the last downturn, a Dragonfly doji candle has formed as the price tested support at the lower end of the wedge formation at $15,166. The more the formation moves towards its end, the more investors hope to jump above the $15,500 or $15,600 mark where a VPVR node is located. So resistance is likely to be expected here.

Although on the surface Bitcoin News Trader is clearly on an upward trend, behind the scenes there is a pulling and stabbing between the bears and bulls. A jump over US$15,600 would be important for the latter to tackle the US$16,000 hurdle again.

The Relative Strength Index (RSI) continues to climb above 70, which is a positive signal, although daily buying volumes have eased somewhat after some traders booked out partial profits at $15,900.

A downturn out of the wedge formation or under its support at $15,100 would open the door for a decline to the 20-MA at $14,680. During the brief crash on 4 and 5 November, no „new supports“ have emerged, and there is also a gap in the VPVR between $13,900 and $15,500.

So if the price falls below the USD 15,100 mark and investors do not interpret this as a buying opportunity, a downward pull to USD 14,000 or even USD 13,800 could follow.

A downturn of 9% or $1,400 sounds severe, but in this case it would be perfectly normal for the lower supports to be tested again after generating strong gains this week.

So while Bitcoin is waiting for the next directional move, the Altcoins, i.e. the remaining „alternative“ crypto currencies, have been able to recover some of their losses in the last two months. Ether (ETH) has made up most of the ground with an upswing to 447 US dollars and is pushing towards the 450 US dollar mark.

Yearn Finance (YFI) has also made strong gains, climbing more than 30% to USD 11,100. The Uniswap UNI token gained 15.5 %, which is enough for a price level of USD 2.53.

According to CoinMarketCap, the current total market capitalisation of the crypto markets amounts to 444.6 billion US dollars, of which 64.7% market share is accounted for by Bitcoin.

 

Almost one fork per year – After the fork between Bitcoin (BTC) and Bitcoin Cash (BCH) in August 2017, then the fork between BCH and Craig Wright’s BSV in November 2018, it is a third “hash war” which looms this November 15. A deep disagreement within the BCH community will cause a further split into two distinct blockchains.

We no longer stop the cloning of BCH: here we are now BCHA and BCHN

The communities in the Immediate Edge platform seem to agree to disagree. The bone of contention is the implementation of an 8% tax on mined block rewards .

This implementation, scheduled for the fork of November 15, has been very strongly criticized from its first evocations at the beginning of 2020. Although the controversial tax has since been reduced (from 12.5 to 8%), nothing is there. fact: some miners and nodes in the network will refuse this forced taxation.

The two clans are divided as follows.

On the one hand, there is the clan gathered around Bitcoin ABC , whose crypto will be called „BCHA“ . This camp will implement the famous tax, which aims to help the development of the BCH network (well BCHA, we must manage to follow!).

On the other hand, there is the “BCHN” (Bitcoin Cash Node) tribe , led by Roger Ver . They refuse taxation, criticizing in particular the fact that all the withdrawals will go to a portfolio controlled by Amaury Séchet .

Emergency plans created in panic by crypto platforms

The CoinDance site allows you to list by which node software client the last 1,000 blocks on the BCH network were validated . The least that can be said is that taxation is not on the rise at all.

As can be seen below, 767 of the last 1000 blocks ( more than three-quarters therefore) were mined by nodes with the tax-free implementation of BCHN . Only 8 blocks (or 0.8%) validated a block with the client version of Bitcoin ABC . However, it should be noted that 22.5% of “neutral” nodes have still not chosen their camp.

Breakdown of customer types who have validated the last 1,000 blocks of the Bitcoin Cash network
As we can see on the Bitcoin.com site , the exchange platforms and the various crypto services are a little overwhelmed by so much separatist violence .

Realizing the big problem on the way, crypto exchanges Binance and Huobi, for example, have just announced that they will stop a certain number of services relating to BCH during this stormy transition phase of the hard fork . Binance will more precisely stop these BCH futures contracts in prevention, from this November 9.

On the side of Coinbase and BitGo , the decision is made: the two companies will only keep BCHN type nodes , and will no longer support BCHA after the November 15 fork.

Even if this umpteenth schism now seems inevitable within 10 days of the hard fork , the BCHA clan seems reduced to grief. The latest snub to the minors‘ tax camp would be that BCHN ultimately retains the title of BCH, experiencing the same fate of “forced renaming” of BSV.

IBM’s new blockchain-based application designed to address the pandemic puts privacy first.

IBM’s blockchain-based application will help companies reopen in the pandemicNOTÍCIAS

 

A new application developed at IBM’s blockchain will seek to help people around the world resume coexistence during the coronavirus pandemic.

IBM Watson Health, an arm of health-focused technology giant IBM, is launching IBM Digital Health Pass, a blockchain-based application to support global organizations and companies planning to reopen after months of lockdown.

IBM Watson announced that the new application can aggregate various types of data, such as VOCID-19 test results and temperature measurement to generate a verified security status. After checking health status through the application, individuals can safely access public places such as sports stadiums, aeroplanes, museums or amusement parks, IBM representatives said.

Eric Piscini, vice president of blockchain division at IBM Watson Health, emphasized that the IBM Digital Health Pass was designed to support privacy as its primary resource. According to the executive, the application will allow users to share their verified health passes without exposing any of the data used to generate it:

„We believe that trust and transparency remain paramount when developing a platform such as a digital health passport, or any solution that deals with confidential personal information, and we remain committed to this philosophy as we continue to build solutions to help support organizations during the current public health crisis.

This is not the first time IBM’s blockchain has been used to help people deal with COVID-19. Earlier this year, IBM also launched IBM’s Rapid Supplier Connect network – a cloud-based application that uses blockchain to help companies that provide coronavirus treatment supplies connect with buyers.

O espaço financeiro descentralizado tem visto uma explosão parabólica desde o início de 2020.

Devido a uma confluência de tendências, incluindo mas não limitado a uma busca de rendimento em dinheiro e uma recuperação no preço do Bitcoin, as moedas DeFi passaram de uma capitalização de mercado de um bilhão ou dois para $13 bilhões, segundo dados CryptoSlate.

O valor também está sendo acumulado dentro das aplicações da DeFi, ao contrário de apenas suas moedas. De acordo com dados da DeFi Pulse, o valor das moedas criptográficas bloqueadas em aplicações financeiras descentralizadas como MakerDAO e Compound atingiu US$ 11 bilhões depois de cruzar US$ 1 bilhão pela primeira vez no início deste ano.

Apesar deste crescimento, que muitos comentaristas no espaço dizem ter sido sustentado pela inovação e verdadeiro interesse, alguns não estão convencidos de que a DeFi esteja aqui para ficar.

Nouriel „Dr. Doom“ Roubini recentemente chamou a DeFi de um espaço cheio de „vaporware“, concordando por uma vez com os maximalistas da Bitcoin.

Nouriel Roubini destrói o espaço da DeFi apesar do crescimento extremo

Nouriel „Dr. Doom“ Roubini, um proeminente economista conhecido por ter previsto os crashes financeiros anteriores, recentemente dobrou seu ódio pelo Bitcoin e pelo criptograma. Desta vez, ele tinha escopos treinados no espaço DeFi, que ele marcou como „onda de vapor desde seu início“.

„DeFi foi vaporware desde o seu início. Agora totalmente vacilante como uma cadeia de bloqueio foi sempre a tecnologia mais hiper-hipulada da história da humanidade“.

Roubini tem sido um crítico de Bitcoin há muito tempo, apesar de ter opiniões sobre bancos centrais e fiat que alguns podem dizer que faria dele um „bom touro Bitcoin“, por assim dizer.

Ele tem sido especialmente duro com altcoins, que ele chama de „shitcoins“ com pouco valor e um público de „jogadores degenerados“.

Nem todos concordam

Enquanto Roubini vê a DeFi como um espaço cheio de ondas de vapor, há um capital sério e investidores entrando no espaço.

Andreessen Horowitz, uma das mais proeminentes empresas de capital de risco do mundo, anunciou em abril seu Fundo Crypto II que investirá US$ 515 milhões em investimentos relativos ao espaço crypto-asset e blockchain.

Um dos focos do fundo é a DeFi, que vê este setor como crucial para o desenvolvimento da internet:

„DeFi é uma nova pilha de serviços financeiros – empréstimos, derivativos, seguros, trading, crowdfunding, e mais – construída sobre cadeias de bloqueio que abraçam os valores centrais da internet aberta… DeFi abre os componentes do financiamento à mesma recombinação e experimentação que torna o software de código aberto tão poderoso“.

Outros investidores institucionais estão se empenhando na DeFi.

Spencer Noon, o chefe da DTC Capital, disse que os investidores institucionais com os quais ele está em contato estão interessados na DeFi. Enquanto muitos ainda não implantaram capital diretamente nos protocolos ou em seus símbolos de governança, Noon explicou que estão comprando o Ethereum em antecipação a isso:

„Minha leitura em #DeFi depois de falar com investidores instl, fundos mgrs, balcões OTC e FOs durante as últimas semanas“: O rebanho está chegando. Eles estão entusiasmados com a DeFi, mas são novos nela, por isso estão comprando $ETH primeiro“.

O comentarista político Van Jones da CNN juntou-se à lista sempre crescente de personalidades proeminentes que saíram em apoio à Bitcoin.

Em resposta a uma entrevista da Reuters com o Twitter e o CEO da Square Jack Dorsey, que vê Bitcoin Loophole como a manifestação mais viável de uma moeda nativa da Internet, Jones simplesmente tweeted „This!,“ chamando a atenção de seus 885.900 seguidores.

Tornando a Bitcoin tão fácil quanto o dinheiro

Dorsey é um proponente de longa data da Bitcoin que financia seu desenvolvimento através do programa de subsídios da Square.

Ele diz que o trabalho da Square Crypto é facilitar o acesso, a compreensão e, o mais importante, a utilização da moeda criptográfica.

Falando dos maiores desafios enfrentados pela Bitcoin, ele mencionou os tempos de transação e a eficiência, bem como a facilidade de uso. O acesso ao criptograma deve ser tão fácil quanto a entrega de papel-moeda.

Eles têm que garantir que a Bitcoin seja tão rápida e eficiente quanto as soluções atuais.

Em 2019, Dorsey opinou que a Bitcoin não estava pronta para se tornar uma moeda:

Não é funcional como uma moeda. Os picos e os canais são como um ativo de investimento e são equivalentes ao ouro.

O irmão de armas de Bitcoin

Não demorou muito para que as luminárias criptográficas se aglomerassem no Twitter de Jones, agora que ele foi mordido pelo bug Bitcoin.

O co-fundador da Morgan Creek Digital, Anthony Pompliano, convidou o comentarista de notícias a se juntar a seu podcast para tocar em criptografia e justiça criminal.

O CEO da Galaxy Digital Mike Novogratz chamou Jones de „irmão de armas da BTC“, dizendo que seu sucinto endosso o fez sorrir.

Jones e Novogratz são ambos sócios fundadores da Reform Alliance, uma organização sem fins lucrativos que visa avançar na reforma da justiça criminal, juntamente com o rapper Jay-Z.

W ciągu ostatnich kilku dni Bitcoin został pochwycony przez ogromną zmienność, a krypto waluta nie jest w stanie stworzyć zrównoważonego trendu.
Skłoniło to inwestorów do zastanowienia się, co może być dalej z BTC, ponieważ nadal znajduje się ona w przedziale długoterminowego handlu pomiędzy 10.000 a 11.000 dolarów.
Ostatni spadek, który spowodował, że krypta zwijała się z 10 500 dolarów dziennie, uderzył w jej techniczną perspektywę.

Jeden z analityków zauważył, że ten ostatni spadek unieważnił kluczowe wsparcie, które wcześniej wzmacniało jeden z jego scenariuszy byków.
Teraz, gdy ten poziom jest zepsuty, kupujący mają dla nich poważną pracę, jeśli chcą się dalej katalizować.
Bitcoin i zagregowany rynek krypto walutowy doświadczyły ostatnio ogromnych zawirowań, a niezdecydowana akcja cenowa BTC spowodowała pewien chaos wśród altcoinów.

Krypto waluta benchmarkowa może w najbliższym czasie nadal nie wykazywać tendencji, ponieważ jej niezdolność do znalezienia jakiejkolwiek stabilności wydaje się wskazywać, że wkrótce wykona duży ruch w tym czy innym kierunku.

Mówiąc o tej możliwości, jeden z traderów wyjaśnił, że uważa, iż następny ruch prawdopodobnie będzie faworyzował niedźwiedzie.

W szczególności zauważa, że jeden z podstawowych byczych scenariuszy, który oglądał, został unieważniony przez ostatni spadek Bitcoina. Jest to poważny znak, który sugeruje, że minusy mogą być nieuchronne.

BITCOIN NADAL NIE MA TRENDU, JAK NIEDŹWIEDZIE PRÓBUJĄ PRZEJĄĆ KONTROLĘ.

W momencie pisania, Bitcoin jest notowany na giełdzie po obecnej cenie 10.350 dolarów. Jest to około ceny, po której Bitcoin handlował przez cały czas po jego odbiciu od dziennego niżu wynoszącego 10.200 dolarów.

Niedźwiedzie powoli spychają BTC w dół w ciągu ostatnich kilku dni, ale musi jeszcze przetestować swój krytyczny region wsparcia między 9.900$ a 10.000$.

Dalsza obrona tego obszaru byłaby znakiem byka. Ze względu na silną tendencję spadkową wywołaną przez odrzucenie 11 200 dolarów, wizyta na tym poziomie może nastąpić w najbliższym czasie.

TRADER: JEDEN Z GŁÓWNYCH „BYCZYCH SCENARIUSZY“ BTC ZOSTAŁ UNIEWAŻNIONY

Popularny analityk kryptocurrency zaoferował ponure spojrzenie na Bitcoin, zauważając, że niedawny spadek cen zepchnął jego dzienną świecę poniżej 10.500 dolarów – co było kluczowym wsparciem.

 

Powiedział, że ten spadek może wskazywać, że dalsze straty są nieuchronne.

„BTC: Miałem możliwe bycze scenariusze na 3 przedziały czasowe w tym tygodniu: miesięczny, tygodniowy i dzienny. To unieważnia codzienny, nadal będę po prostu schładzać i czekać na pozostałe dwa (z uwagi na to, że są ważniejsze), ale to niekoniecznie jest znak, że chcesz widzieć byka“.

Bakktin futuurivolyymit ovat edelleen vaaleita verrattuna huippuluokan cryptocurrency -vaihtoihin Huobi ja Binance virstanpylväästä huolimatta. Intercontinental Exchange (ICE): n omistama salattujen varojen säilytyksen ja kaupankäynnin säännelty alusta ilmoitti ennätykselliset päivittäiset kaupankäyntimäärät fyysisesti selvitetyille Bitcoin (BTC)-futuurisopimuksilleen.

Bakkt ilmoitti 16. syyskuuta, että yli 200 miljoonan dollarin arvosta BTC-sopimuksia oli vaihdettu 24 tunnin kuluessa. Se tarkoittaa, että alusta on rikkonut edellisen ennätyksensä hämmästyttävällä 36 prosentilla. Ennätysluku on melkein kaksinkertainen keskimääräiseen päivittäiseen kaupankäyntimäärään, joka on julkaistu koko syyskuun toistaiseksi, salausmarkkinatietojen kerääjän Skew mukaan.

 

Huolimatta siitä, että Bakktin Bitcoin-johdannaiset kutsutaan instituutioiden johtamien härkämarkkinoiden mahdolliseksi katalysaattoriksi, ne eivät koskaan täyttäneet odotuksia. He kokivat täydellisen toimettomuuden jaksoja tammikuussa 2020. Mutta alustalla hiljattain kokenut volyymin tasainen kasvu osoittaa, että institutionaaliset sijoittajat lämpenevät vähitellen siihen.

Merkittävä ero Bakktin sopimuksissa on se, että niiden oletetaan olevan „fyysisesti ratkaistu“ Bitcoinissa eikä käteisessä. Analyytikot ovat kuitenkin vihjanneet, että suurin osa Bakktilla käydyistä sopimuksista kumotaan. Vain vähemmistö kauppiaista on päättänyt saada bitcoinia sopimusten päättyessä.

Muut salausvaihdot

Viimeisten 24 tunnin aikana Binancen BTC-USDT-ikuisen sopimuksen kauppa oli 2,65 miljardia dollaria. Tällä futuurisopimuksella ei ole voimassaoloaikaa tai toimituspäivää. Toisaalta pörssin 74 futuuriparia tuotti kumulatiivisesti 5,96 miljardia dollaria.

Huobin 103 futuuriparia puolestaan ​​tuotti 5,48 miljardin dollarin kauppaa viimeisen 24 tunnin aikana. Tämä summa sisältää 1,28 miljardia dollaria alustan BTC-USD-ikuisesta sopimuksesta. OKExin BTC-USD-ikuisilla sopimuksilla kirjattiin 516 miljoonan dollarin arvoinen kaupankäynti viimeisen 24 tunnin aikana, kun pörssin 466 futuuriparit paransivat 2,72 miljardia dollaria.

Mutta Bakkt voitti Derebitin Derebitin BTC-USD-sopimuksella, joka tuotti 168 miljoonaa dollaria 24 tunnin volyymina.

Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) har frågat Coinbase att sträva efter att regelbundet släppa sin transparensrapport för att göra det möjligt för allmänheten att få en tydligare bild av hur ofta den tar emot förfrågningar om information från regeringarna och hur den hanterar dessa förfrågningar, enligt ett blogginlägg den 2 september 2020 .

Behovet av regelbundna insynsrapporter

I en tid då kryptovalutor och den underliggande distribuerade huvudteknologin (DLT) väcker alltmer uppmärksamhet hos massorna såväl som myndigheterna över hela världen har Electronic Frontier Foundation gjort det klart att det nu har blivit mycket viktigt för kryptomarknadsaktörer att regelbundet släppa sina transparensrapporter.

I sin blogg den 2 september 2020 posta, Bitcoin Code, en San Francisco-baserad integritetscentrerad ideell digital rättighetsgrupp, uttalade kategoriskt att det nu har blivit avgörande mer än någonsin för användare av betalningsprocessorer och kryptobörser, liksom allmänheten att veta hur ofta myndigheter begäran om sina personuppgifter från dessa plattformar och hur företagen svarar på dessa förfrågningar.

EFF noterade vidare att människors ekonomiska data är en av de mest känsliga uppgifterna om dem, eftersom det avslöjar viktiga detaljer som deras dagliga vanor, de saker de bryr sig om, de platser de åker och vem de umgås med, för den som bryr sig om känna till.

Mot den bakgrunden har stiftelsen uppmanat Coinbase, som är ett av de största kryptobörserna i USA, att gå före med gott exempel genom att släppa regelbundna transparensrapporter som beskriver hur många regeringens begäranden om information den får och hur den hanterar dem.

EFF skrev:

”Som ett av de största enskilda företagen på den amerikanska kryptovalutamarknaden har Coinbase en enorm styrka och inflytande över denna dynamik. Det bör stå upp för sina användare och också använda sin marknadsstyrka och inflytande för att visa andra att transparensrapporter är en industristandard för alla kryptobörser. ”

För att klargöra sin poäng citerade EFF ärendet mellan den amerikanska regeringen och en Richard Gratkowski, vars transaktionsuppgifter överlämnades till myndigheterna av Coinbase, när den senare fick en stämning från regeringen som förpliktade den att offentliggöra detaljerna om någon av sina kunder som skickat kryptobetalningar till en viss barnpornografisida.

EFF säger att det är en del av börsens skyldigheter att skydda kundens integritet för att lysa mer över regeringens övervakningsaktiviteter och att det helt enkelt borde ha släppt en transparensrapport när den delade Gratkowskis uppgifter med regeringen.

EFF har uppmanat Coinbase att följa stegen i Kraken, en annan toppbaserad USA-baserad börs som publicerar öppenhetsrapporter varje år.

”Åtminstone en av Coinbases konkurrenter, Kraken, har redan insett vikten av att vara öppen om detta ämne och offentliggjort information om globala brottsbekämpningsförfrågningar den får. Att tillhandahålla detta ansvar är särskilt viktigt när det gäller finansiella data, eftersom de ofta kan överlämnas med en stämning, en 314 (a) begäran eller ett nationellt säkerhetsbrev, ”avslutade EFF.
