High-performance computing company Northern Data AG announced in a press release that it plans to further develop existing computing sites and establish new offices.

According to a Dec. 18 press release, the German HPC company plans to invest in new computing power centers and further develop existing ones. Currently, the company is building a huge data center in Texas and also plans to invest in its site in Norway, which has been in operation since 2018. The Frankfurt-based computing service provider offers its customers infrastructural solutions for various HPC applications, including bitcoin mining, blockchain and artificial intelligence. With the rise of bitcoin champion, Northern Data is actually benefiting twice over in the form of base compensation and, in some cases, „performance-based compensation components.“ In July, the company saw its share price plummet after an alleged smear campaign drew harsh criticism of the company’s business model.

In addition to expanding and developing new offices, Northern Data is also working on a new supercomputer, which is expected to be operational by the end of the first quarter. According to the company, the computing power of the planned high-performance computer will be up to 404 petaflops. This would make the computer the second fastest in the world. Only the Japanese top dog Fugaku (537 petaflops) has to admit defeat to the Northern Data specimen.

Experience in bitcoin mining as the basis for success

CEO Aroosh Thillainathan comments on his company’s current situation as follows:

With more than seven years of Bitcoin mining experience and innovative solutions […] Northern Data has a technology edge over the competition like no other company in the market. This is the basis of our success.

With current developments and plans, Northern Data expects revenues of between €350 million and €400 million in 2021. The company expects EBITA to be between 100 and 125 million euros.

Mutta koska kryptovaluutan alkuperäinen perusta oli tarjota taloudellista vapautta kaikille ja irrottautua pankkisektorin perinteisistä rajoituksista, Coinbasen siirtyminen kohti Wall Streetia saattaa herättää dramaattisia muutoksia markkinoilla.

Después de su reciente prueba en la resistencia de 18.800 dólares, los compradores aún no han subido el precio de la BTC por encima de la resistencia. En cambio, el movimiento del precio se ha limitado a un rango de precios. Ayer, el BTC/USD fue repelido después de no superar la resistencia de 18.800 dólares.

BTC/USD – Gráfico diario

Entre el 21 y el 24 de noviembre son unos cuatro días en los que el BTC volvió a probar la resistencia de 18.800 dólares. En otras palabras, Bitcoin ha estado en una corrección a la baja durante los últimos cuatro días sin reanudar el impulso alcista. Hemos visto en la anterior acción de precios que Bitcoin utiliza alrededor de un día o tres días de corrección antes de reanudar la tendencia alcista. Mientras tanto, Bitcoin está fluctuando entre 17.800 y 18.800 dólares. El movimiento alcista de la moneda se ha visto impedido por la resistencia de 18.800 dólares.

Bitcoin se enfrenta actualmente a un rechazo de 18.600 y 18.800 dólares. En el lado positivo, un fuerte rebote por encima de 18.400 dólares impulsará el precio para romper la resistencia en 18.600 y 18.800 dólares. El impulso se extenderá por encima del máximo de 19.000 dólares. Sin embargo, cuando el impulso alcista no se reanude, los vendedores aprovecharán para romper por debajo del soporte de 17.800 dólares. Esto hundirá la moneda a 17.400 o 16.600 dólares a la baja…

Bitcoin sube mientras Coinbase baja: Apagones en el mercado e indignación de los comerciantes

Muchos usuarios han indicado que cuando Bitcoin y otros activos criptográficos son volátiles, el intercambio a veces se desconecta sin previo aviso. Según los informes, estos cortes pueden impedir que los clientes compren o vendan sus activos criptográficos. En vista de esto, Coinbase ha sufrido múltiples interrupciones desde marzo. Por ejemplo, entre marzo y noviembre, la bolsa registró nueve problemas diferentes que dieron lugar a varios tipos de cortes o problemas de conectividad. En todos ellos, el impacto en el cliente no está claro.

Mientras tanto, Bitcoin no está de moda en el momento de escribir este artículo. El precio de BTC sigue fluctuando en un rango limitado. Por el lado positivo, si el precio de la BTC rompe la resistencia de 18.800 dólares, se espera un repunte por encima de 19.500 dólares. Sin embargo, el 18 de noviembre la tendencia alcista; el cuerpo de la vela retrazada probó el nivel de retrazado de Fibonacci del 78,6%. Esto implica que el mercado subirá hasta el nivel de 1.272 extensiones de Fibonacci o $19,142.0 y se revertirá. Sin embargo, la reversión no será inmediata.

Ether fever hits the biggest ones – Grayscale’s cryptocurrency funds continue their wild rise. According to the CEO of the firm, its institutional clients are particularly fond of Ethereum (ETH) lately.

The $ 12.6 billion crypto-fund

The investment funds offered by Grayscale have always been very successful with its (very) wealthy clients. They allow them to invest in crypto-assets , without having to manage their sometimes complex storage themselves (especially for such sums).

The latest news is that Grayscale Investments now has more than $ 12.6 billion in cryptocurrency under its management. We will already notice that, among these cryptos, the Grayscale Ethereum Trust fund has experienced very good progress .

Indeed, compared to just a month ago , Grayscale’s ether holdings have grown from a value of $ 1.1 billion to now nearly $ 1.68 billion , an increase of nearly 53%. of ethers under management.

Soon a mad race for ethers?

In an interview with Bloomberg, Michael Sonnenshein , managing director of Grayscale, explained that this trend of buying ETH is likely to accelerate more than to reverse.

While Bitcoin (BTC) has so far been overwhelmingly the first (and sometimes even the only) choice for Grayscale’s institutional clients, things seem to have changed for some time:

“In the year 2020, we see a new group of investors who go first for Ethereum and, in some cases, even only for Ethereum (…). There is a growing conviction around Ethereum as an asset class. “

It must be said that in addition to its status as the main platform for smart contracts and decentralized applications (dApps), the image of the Ethereum network has also benefited a lot from decentralized finance (the famous DeFi) during this second half of 2020 .

So many good points that make Michael Sonnenshein say that:

“The development of the asset class has continued to solidify (…) Ethereum has the same strength as Bitcoin. “

The head of Grayscale thus saw the flow of money entering the ETH fund from around $ 20 million in the fourth quarter of 2019, to more than $ 204 million in the third quarter of 2020. And the last quarter of this year, although still unfinished, this record is already exploding .

One thing is certain: Grayscale made a largely winning bet by choosing this specialized cryptocurrency sector, dedicated to institutional investors. Their arrival is starting to be clearly felt in the crypto market. Yet that would only be the beginning , according to some legendary traders.
