The head of VTB warned of the possible departure of private investors in Bitcoin Investments

In case of narrowing the choice in the Russian securities market, a retail investor can go to bitcoin, the press service of the bank reports the words of the head of VTB Andrey Kostin.

The chairman of the board of the second largest bank of Russia by assets said that he supports the idea of ​​the Central Bank of the need to protect a private investor. At the same time, Kostin drew attention to the fact that it is important to find a balance between regulation and market development, since excessive restrictions can lead to the fact that investors will look for alternatives and leave the securities market, making a choice in favor of “less understandable, transparent and reliable products ”, that is - gold, dollar, bitcoin or accounts with foreign brokers.

Kostin recalled that one of the landmark results of the past year -
entry of a mass private investor into the Russian market, while the interests of clients are shifting towards investment products. According to the head of VTB, in the total portfolio of attracted funds of individuals of the bank (6.8 trillion rubles) the volume of such products is more than 1.8 trillion rubles.

The head of VTB noted that the restrictions of the Central Bank concerning the acquisition of complex investment products included "bonds of the largest Russian banks - VTB and Sberbank - with full capital protection, tied to gold, which are absolutely reliable from the point of view of the client's interests."

In the summer of 2020, a law was passed on the categorization of investors, according to which unqualified investors can buy complex investment products only after passing special testing. It was supposed to start in April 2022, but in January a bill was introduced to the State Duma, according to which brokers and banks will be able to start testing their clients as early as October 1, 2021 - until that time, the sale of complex investment products should be limited. The restrictions will not apply to shares issued in accordance with Russian legislation, investment-rated bonds, traded on futures and options exchanges, government securities and investment-rated Eurobonds,

In February 2019, Andrey Kostin named several reasons why, in his opinion, cryptocurrencies will never gain wide acceptance. He believed that the main factor was that the global financial system was becoming more transparent, banking secrecy and offshores were disappearing, and there was still no mechanism for regulating digital money.

Contrary to the "falling wedge". Why and how much Bitcoin can grow

Over the past day, Bitcoin has risen in price by 16%. Its rate rose to $ 38.5 thousand, then it slightly decreased. At 19:30 Moscow time on January 29, the first cryptocurrency costs $ 37.1 thousand. The key driver of such dynamics was the gesture of the head of Tesla and SpaceX, Elon Musk. In the profile of his Twitter account, he posted the hashtag BTC, which was followed by an increase in quotes.


NewsBTC analyst Yashu Gola expects bitcoin prices to continue to rise. On the chart of the first cryptocurrency, a falling wedge pattern was formed earlier. Its upper border acted as resistance, but now this level has been passed, the expert explained. According to him, this makes it possible for BTC to rise in price to $ 41 thousand, with a favorable development of events - up to $ 50 thousand.

The rise in price of the first cryptocurrency was also predicted by the analyst of the Cryptobriefing portal Ali Martinez. He drew attention to the fact that the price of bitcoin rose above the resistance level of $ 34 thousand. The expert drew attention to the fact that the price of bitcoin rose above the resistance level of $ 34 thousand. In this regard, the chances of the growth of the asset rate to $ 43.5 thousand increased significantly. ., Martinez is sure. He clarified that the coin left the accumulation zone, in which traders were increasing their position in BTC.

Vladimir Smetanin, CEO of Swiss cryptocurrency broker Newcent, suggested that Bitcoin will soon stabilize near the $ 36,000 mark, and this will be a good signal in favor of continued growth. The rise in the asset price above $ 34-35 thousand means its exit from the descending corridor, Smetanin explained. He added that the outlook for the coin at the end of the year also looks positive.

“We are almost sure that by the end of the year the values ​​should go beyond $ 60-70 thousand, but the estimates of $ 100 thousand sounding on the market seem quite likely. However, it will not hurt to prepare for the sinking of bitcoin to $ 25-23 thousand on the horizon of three to four months, ”Smetanin says.

"The market is ripe for a correction." Why Bitcoin should fall in price

On Thursday, December 24, Bitcoin's share of the cryptocurrency market reached 69.3% for the first time in 2020. By the evening, altcoins partially won back the fall in value, so the indicator dropped to 68.6%. At 18:15 Moscow time, the average market bitcoin rate is $ 23.3 thousand, over the past day it has decreased by 1.6%.

The main reason for the growth in the market share of bitcoin was the decrease in the capitalization of XRP, which, unlike the entire crypto market, has been impulsively falling in recent days, explained Mikhail Karkhalev, financial analyst at the Currency.com crypto exchange. Ripple's XRP token value has plummeted 54% in the past 7 days due to allegations made by the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) against Ripple.

“The proceeds from XRP sales went partly into fiat, partly into more reliable cryptocurrencies such as bitcoin and ether. In my opinion, there are no prerequisites for a decrease in the market share of bitcoin now. The main cryptocurrency, in contrast to the same Ethereum, is holding near the price maximum, while Ethereum has noticeably sagged and lost the positions that it has reached over the past 2 weeks. If the bitcoin rate now starts to correct, other coins will follow, and vice versa, ”Karkhalev is sure.

He added that this could change in February when the Chicago-based CME launches ETH futures. The inflow of capital into the second cryptocurrency will at some point contribute to a more active growth dynamics than that of bitcoin, which will help the ether regain part of the market share, the expert explained.

“The market is ripe for a slight correction up to $ 21-20 thousand. The price may reach these levels in the first half of January, after which it will go back to growth in search of new highs. I consider the continuation of growth to be a less likely scenario, and even if it takes place, it will be a short growth, in the region of $ 25-25.5 thousand, after which the price will also go to correction, "he concluded.

Sergey Zhdanov, CEO of the EXMO exchange, named several factors that were the main reason for the stability of the bitcoin rate, including institutional demand, as well as alarming news about the spread of a new type of COVID-19 in Europe. On the chart of the bitcoin rate, the expert highlighted a zone of local resistance at the levels of $ 23.5-24 thousand, the coin cannot confidently gain a foothold above which. If this resistance is broken, the path to updating the historical maximum in front of Bitcoin will be open, Zhdanov noted and called this scenario a priority. In case of an unsuccessful attempt to take the resistance level around $ 24,000, a correction should be expected to support $ 22,000 or even $ 20,000, the specialist warned.

Bitcoin has a chance to continue strengthening until the end of the year, but in 2021 it is almost guaranteed a decline of 25-30%, added Artem Deev, head of the analytical department at AMarkets. The beginning of this process can be tracked by the inflow of funds into the Grayscale funds. Investors are now investing in the Bitcoin trust of this organization, on average, about $ 1 billion per month. Over the year, assets managed by Grayscale have grown almost sevenfold - from $ 2 billion to $ 13.1 billion, and the price of bitcoin has tripled over the same time. When the inflow of investments into funds begins to decline, this will most likely lead to a correction in bitcoin, Deev said.

Bitcoin rose in price by $ 3,620 per day and broke through $ 23 thousand for the first time.

On December 17, on the Binance crypto exchange, the bitcoin rate for the first time in history reached $ 23.114 thousand. The cost of the first cryptocurrency began to rise sharply on December 11 from a local minimum of $ 17.5 thousand. eighteen%.

Growth accelerated after breaking the all-time high of $ 20,000. This may be due to the multimillion-dollar liquidations of short positions of traders on crypto exchanges. According to the bybt.com service, over the past 24 hours, positions of 78.9 thousand traders were forcibly closed for over $ 1.11 billion. Almost $ 967 million of them fell on transactions with bitcoin.

With a sharp rise in the exchange rate, the exchanges begin to forcibly close the contracts of those who were short. This is a standard mechanism - in order not to lose money, exchanges liquidate short positions of clients and take the funds left on security for themselves. This dramatically changes the ratio of buy / sell transactions in favor of the former, which causes a sharp rise in the value of the asset.

Yesterday, December 16, the price of bitcoin exceeded $ 20 thousand amid several positive news at once. It became known that in 2021 the Chicago Board Options Exchange (Cboe) will launch an index for cryptocurrencies. The tool will show the dynamics of the price of digital assets and historical data.

No less important news came from another exchange in Chicago - CME. She announced the addition of Ethereum futures from February 8, 2021. The instrument is now awaiting the assessment of the financial regulator. For the first time, cryptocurrency futures appeared on CME on December 18, 2017. The exchange added contracts for bitcoin the next day after its rate set a previous all-time high near $ 20,000.

Also yesterday, the investment fund Ruffer Investment Company announced the purchase of bitcoin. Initially, it was reported that the company allocated funds from its separate fund for investing in cryptocurrency about $ 15 million.Later, a representative of Ruffer clarified that the company became the owner of bitcoins worth over $ 740 million.

Earlier, Scott Meinerd, investment director of Guggenheim Investments, with $ 20 billion in assets, called bitcoin "grossly undervalued" at current price levels. According to Minerd, bitcoin should cost about $ 400 thousand. This conclusion was made based on the limited emission of the cryptocurrency and its value relative to gold.

Users of these platforms just need to keep XRP tokens in their balance to participate in the airdrop. However, each site may have its own restrictions regarding the trading of altcoin XRP, its input and output and other functions.

The project announced the airdrop in August. Since then, the XRP token has shown significant growth in value. During this period, the price of the coin increased by 90%, to $ 0.55, at the moment rising above $ 0.90. In this regard, there is a double risk of incurring losses from participating in the FLR distribution.

First, users who hold XRP but are not interested in the airdrop can start selling coins to lock in profits. Secondly, participants in the FLR distribution can start getting rid of XRP as soon as a snapshot of balances is taken. Due to both factors, the XRP price could plummet after the end of the promotion.

At the same time, it is not known whether it will be possible to compensate for the losses by selling the received FLR tokens. At the moment, it is not known how much the new cryptocurrency will cost and whether it will be in demand in the future.

Airdrop participants can hedge the risks of participation in it by using short positions. If the XRP holder goes short on XRP, then in the event of a drop in the price of the coin after the distribution, the losses will be offset by the profit gained from the short position.

In August, the MEME DeFi token was airdropped and handed out for free. Within a month after that, the coin's price climbed to $ 1800. However, by the current moment the asset has dropped in price to $ 150.

"Good time to buy ETH." What will happen to the most popular altcoin

Ethereum hit $ 634 on December 1, the highest since May 2018. As of the evening of December 4, the cryptocurrency is trading at $ 590, and despite the decline in recent days, since the beginning of the year, its price has increased more than 5 times. The higher the market “climbs”, the higher the chances of a sharp correction, said lead analyst at 8848 Invest Viktor Pershikov.

“At the same time, the“ low base ”effect continues to affect altcoins, as a result of which they can be bought more reliably than BTC, which has already reached its historical highs. Ethereum both fundamentally and technically looks attractive for investments. If the capitalization of the entire market does not decrease by the end of the year due to profit taking by investors, then I expect the price to rise to $ 700 in December. In this regard, now is a rather good time to buy Ethereum, ”Pershikov is sure.

According to him, ETH is an important asset in the portfolio for 2021 as well, since the technological development of the network, coupled with the demand for the asset from institutional investors, may bring it to a level of $ 1,000 by the end of next year.

Nikolay Klenov, financial analyst at the investment company Raison Asset Management, added that there is a direct correlation between the ether and bitcoin quotes, since bitcoin is the locomotive of the cryptocurrency market. Therefore, the movement of the ether rate depends on the movement of the bitcoin rate, which is now in the range of $ 19-20 thousand and is trying to break through the psychologically important resistance level. Roughly the same thing happens with ether, the expert is sure.

“As for bitcoin, the probability of its growth above $ 20 thousand is still high, since this level has been tested several times and the rollbacks were insignificant - the demand for BTC remains high,” Klenov stressed.

On December 1st, Ethereum 2.0 phase zero was launched. The second version of the Ethereum network will have a staking function. It will allow investors who have sent coins to a deposit contract to passively increase their number. The annual profitability of staking is currently about 20%. It will decrease as the amount of ETH held in the deposit contract grows. Users who send cryptocurrency to it will not be able to withdraw it until phase 1.5, when the connection between the current Ethereum network and the new one is established.

Trader turned $ 600 into $ 20K in 1 minute

The reason for the abnormal decline in the price of cryptocurrency was a trader's mistake. Yesterday, there was a sharp drop in the market, bitcoin dropped in price from $ 19 thousand to $ 16.4 thousand in a few hours, altcoins showed stronger dynamics. Against this background, a user who wanted to sell a weakening BNB most likely made a mistake with a trading pair and chose the BNB / BUSD tab instead of BNB / USDT.

The difference between these trading pairs is liquidity. The first pair contains a lot of orders to buy and sell a token, while the second has almost none. Low liquidity makes this pair vulnerable to manipulation.

According to calculations made by the editorial board of RBC-Crypto, now on the Poloniex exchange in a pair of BNB to BUSD, the total volume of orders for selling coins in the price range from $ 27 to $ 900 is about $ 1000. Accordingly, if you buy a token for this amount, you can artificially raise its rate to $ 900. For $ 2,700, you can push the BNB price above $ 9,000.

A similar situation if you try to underestimate the token rate. The first order to buy the coin is located at $ 23.5. Thus, it is possible to artificially lower the price to this level by selling BNB for only $ 1. In the price range from $ 1 to $ 23.5, the total volume for the purchase of an asset is about $ 3000. By selling tokens for this amount, you can bring quotes down to $ 1.

This is exactly what happened at Poloniex yesterday. Unknown sold a large number of BNB tokens. As a result, the asset fell to $ 0.8. At this price, the trader mistakenly sold 732 coins. Another user, who had placed a buy order here in advance, instantly earned about $ 20,000 by investing just under $ 600. The profit from this transaction was over 3200%.

This is not the first time that an abnormal deviation in the BNB token rate has occurred on Poloniex. In July, the asset price fell from $ 18.2 to $ 6. It is not known how many coins were sold at the undervalued rate, but the user who took advantage of the situation earned more than 200% profit in a single trade.

The head of the SEC explained the rise in the rate of bitcoin

The existing payment mechanisms have shortcomings, which is a factor contributing to the growth of the bitcoin rate, said the chairman of the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) Jay Clayton.  In an interview with CNBC, he acknowledged that the cryptocurrency has features that make it possible to characterize it as a store of value or payment mechanism.


 “We have defined bitcoin not as a security, rather it is a payment instrument and a store of value.  Our existing payment mechanisms are ineffective, this is what became one of the factors behind the growth of the bitcoin rate, "Clayton said.

According to the head of the financial regulator, cryptocurrencies come into his field of vision when people use digital money to attract capital to their businesses, like securities.  This happened during the ICO boom in 2017, when there were many unregistered public offerings of securities under the guise of IPO projects.

Clayton announced a few days ago that he was stepping down from office at the end of this year.  He became chairman of the SEC in May 2017 by decision of US President Donald Trump.

This fall, the bitcoin rate has risen by almost 80%, having updated the maximum since December 2017 at around $ 18.5 thousand. Now the first cryptocurrency is traded at $ 18.1 thousand, over the last week its price has increased by 12%.

Bitcoin is the best form of money. " Interview with the head of Binance

Changpeng Zhao is the founder and CEO of Binance, the world's largest cryptocurrency exchange by trading volume. In 2018, he made the cover of Forbes as a billionaire from scratch in 6 months. The correspondent of RBC-Crypto talked to one of the most influential people on the crypto market. Some excerpts from the interview:

- Is it worth selling Bitcoin or Binance Coin (BNB), and at what price would it be the correct and logical decision?

- Now the level of distribution of cryptocurrencies is at around 0.1%. This means that only one person in a thousand owns cryptocurrency. If cryptocurrencies become more widespread than fiat, in the future the market could grow a thousand times, by 100,000%. This area has a lot of room to grow.

For the full version of the interview, which also raises the problems of regulating the cryptocurrency market, blocking the Binance site by Roskomnadzor, the spread of digital money in Russia, Belarus and Ukraine, as well as other topics, see the video:


The new industry market may be larger than the traditional one. For example, if you look at Uber, try to estimate its capitalization, you will not count it based on the taxi market alone. Because Uber can do a lot. Similarly, cryptocurrencies have much more opportunities than fiat. This suggests that the volume of the crypto market will exceed the fiat one. For many years to come, digital money will have a lot of room to grow. Don't take this as financial advice or a guarantee, but I never sell cryptocurrencies. I only spend BNB when I pay with the Binance Card. If I have to pay for lunch, taxi, I just spend $ 50, $ 30 each time.

- What cryptocurrency?

I usually spend BNB, which is my biggest net worth. I never sell BNB for fiat.

- How high can the bitcoin rate rise in principle? What is the goal - $ 100K, $ 500K, million dollars or higher?

To be honest, I still don't have a specific number in my head. Basically, I don't think from this point of view. I said earlier, we only have 0.1% adoption right now. We can grow 1000 times. In this case, 1000 times may not be the upper limit. Whether this will actually happen or not - we do not know, I do not know. Maybe it will never happen, maybe it will happen very soon.

But I believe that cryptocurrencies are the best form of money, in a crisis it is the money of freedom for billions of people around the world. I think this will be one of the fastest growing industries in the next 10 or 20 years. I also believe that the capitalization of the cryptocurrency market should probably be greater than the Internet. I think cryptocurrencies have huge room to grow.

But how much Bitcoin can grow - I'm not sure. In the next 10 years, whether it remains the best cryptocurrency, whether something can replace it or not, I'm not sure. There are a lot of details here, so I can't make a prediction. The only thing I'm absolutely sure of is that this industry has a very high potential. So I spend all my time in this industry hoping to create tools that people will use. I am extremely optimistic.

- DeFi is an explosive story of 2020, with many projects flooding the market. Does this market segment have the potential for further development?

“I think some of the pro-innovations will remain. The liquidity providers, “profitable farming,” now provide a high annual percentage of income. It may not last very long.

Companies create new tokens, issue them as a reward. This is not a long-running story. But I think DeFi will stay. Even now, with the popularity of Bitcoin rising again, DeFi is still popular. We think there is a lot of growth potential in DeFi.

- But don't you think DeFi is a bubble?

- It depends on what you mean by the bubble. The cost of DeFi tokens is being adjusted, growing, constantly floating. In 2017, ICOs were called a bubble, but even now there are many projects that still work great, even if they started in 2017. Binance is one of them. Depends on what you mean by the DeFi bubble. A lot of DeFi projects are already in a bubble, and I also believe that there are elements of a bubble in the DeFi space, but this does not mean that DeFi will eventually disappear completely.
