Recently, Bitcoin-based payments app Strike integrated USDT as part of its global expansion to 65 countries. Earlier, rival stablecoin issuer Circle teamed up with payment firm Block’s (SQ) subsidiary TBD to offer remittance payments using its own stablecoin, USDC.

ProShares’ Bitcoin Strategy ETF BITO Underperforms BTC Price by 13.8% This Year: K33 Research

Published

on



The underperformance stems from the costs associated with the fund’s structure. BITO does not purchase tokens, instead it holds BTC futures contracts on the Chicago Mercantile Exchange (CME). The fund must roll over the contracts every month as they expire, making it vulnerable to the price difference between terms. If next month’s contract trades at a premium to the nearest expiry – a phenomenon called contango and typical during a bull market – over a sustainable period, the fund will compound losses due to the “contango bleed.”

Bitcoin Price (BTC) on Track for First Monthly Loss of the Year

Published

on



Bitcoin (BTC) climbed above $28,000 after an agreement on a deal to raise the U.S. debt ceiling, but the crypto still appears on track for its first monthly loss since December. The leading cryptocurrency by market value traded as high as $28,400 late Sunday, up from about $25,900 the previous week. At press time, bitcoin is changing hands at just under $28,000. Prices, however, were still down about 5% for May in what would be the first monthly decline of the year, assuming things hold through Wednesday. Ether (ETH) at the moment is up modestly in May after trading in a tight range for most of the month. Analyst Matteo Bottacini at Crypto Finance AG said in a morning note that he sees potential for ether and other altcoins to outperform thanks to positive narratives surrounding the Ethereum network, such as the all-time high in staked ether.

Reasonable Crypto Debate — Michael Casey

Published

on



The trio visited Dresden, NY, home of Greenidge Generation’s bitcoin mining operation, which has become a lightning rod in the wider debate over Bitcoin’s environmental impact and, in particular, the political battles over New York State’s move last year to impose a ban on new mining projects. They found that both sides have made wildly exaggerated claims about the harm or benefits of Greenidge’s operation. New York Assemblywoman Anna Kelles, a Democrat, has repeatedly made the false claim that the facility is heating nearby Seneca Lake and killing aquatic life. At the same time, many mining advocates dramatically overstate community benefits such as the number of jobs created.

Published

Digital Currency Group (DCG), the parent company of CoinDesk is closing down its trade execution and prime brokerage services unit, TradeBlock, citing crypto winter and regulatory uncertainties.

TradeBlock was acquired in 2020 by CoinDesk, and was later spun out as its own standalone business.
