Important news of the week


The electricity tariff for extracting digital currencies will be at the export rate!

Probably the most important news last week was the announcement of electricity tariffs for mining farms. As whispers were heard about the export electricity rate for the miners this summer, with the announcement of this news by Haji Reza Teymouri, CEO of the Tehran Electricity Company, the accuracy of the previous hearings was confirmed. Haji Reza Teymouri said that the electricity tariff of digital currency extraction centers will be calculated with the average price of export electricity in Rials and with the exchange rate of the Nima system. Teymouri also said about determining the task of the recorded devices that we have calculated the difference between their electricity consumption and 9 billion tomans have been received from the owners of these devices.

US delegates request to create a national digital currency

News of China’s digital currency supply made a lot of noise last month. Now it seems that it is the turn of the United States. Two members of Congress from both the Democratic and Republican parties, while expressing concern about the danger of the dollar losing ground, proposed the creation of a national digital currency. Interestingly, in the letter sent by these representatives, the details of the Federal Reserve’s authority, which plays the role of the central bank in the United States, are mentioned, according to which this institution can have the power to supply a national digital currency. Rumors of a weakening role of the dollar on the world stage have led even McCarney, the governor of the Bank of England, to point to national digital currencies and liberas as tools to break out of the dollar.

German Bank forecast: Bitcoin will reach $ 90,000 by 2020!

It may come as a surprise to hear that a bank has predicted a sharp rise in the price of bitcoin. The German state-owned bank Bayern Al-Ubi, in a report comparing bitcoin to gold, noted that the price of bitcoin will jump significantly next year and has estimated the figure at $ 90,000, taking into account the relevant calculations. The report discusses a parameter called the current accumulation rate, which has been high for gold for a very long time, and it seems that bitcoin has taken a similar path.

Beckett platform disappointing start in the first week

If you have been following the Bitcoin news, you must have heard of Beckett and his future contracts. Launched in early October, the platform performed disappointingly in its first week of operation. Beckett’s futures traded up $ 5.8 million in the first week. However, if we compare this figure for the early weeks of the Bitcoin futures market, we come to the strange figure of $ 460 million in CME futures. Of course, it is worth noting that Beckett started while Bitcoin seems to be at the beginning of a long-term uptrend, as well as Beckett’s different mechanism from other futures contracts in which only the dollar equivalent is settled at the maturity of the contracts. It has caused us not to see a strong beginning. The steady growth in the trading volume of this platform is the most important factor that can benefit the price of Bitcoin more than anything else.

Telegram digital currency will be available until mid-November

A perfect concept

We all love fascinating stories about Genesis. The story of the birth of Bitcoin is a unique story whose details are more important than it seems at first glance. Who was Satoshi Nakamoto? Was it an individual or a group? Was she a woman? An advanced AI or space creature that travels in time? Aside from science fiction hypotheses, we will probably never get an answer to this question. And this is very important!

Satoshi chose to remain anonymous. He sowed the seeds of bitcoin and was present at the beginning of the project long enough to make sure that the network would not be destroyed in the first place. Until he suddenly disappeared.

What seems to be happening is that the masterpiece of anonymity was necessary to create a truly decentralized system. There is no central control and no centralized institution. No inventor, no one to be persecuted, tortured, silenced or threatened. What we have is a unique masterpiece of the perfect concept of technology.

One of the biggest things Satoshi did was make him disappear – Jimmy Song

Since the advent of bitcoin, thousands of other digital currencies have emerged. But none of them have their own story. If you want to get past bitcoin, you have to tell a better story than its origin. In war, it is ideas, stories, and narratives that signify survival.

Gold first entered the jewelry industry and was used in trade for more than 7,000 years. Its captivating radiance led to it being considered a gift from the gods. – The book “Gold: Extraordinary Metal”

Like gold in ancient times, bitcoin may be considered a gift from the gods. Unlike gold, the story of the origin of bitcoin is made entirely of humans. But this time we know who the gods of development and maintenance are: people from all over the world, whether they are anonymous or not.

Bitcoin taught me that stories and stories are important.
