BTC stands firm at $9,150

After falling below US$9,150 last week, there was no trending market. The price of BTC rebounded quickly in a short period of time, and again stood at US$9,150 this morning. The price rebound stopped near US$9,250, and a trend of lower rebound highs appeared in the short-term k-line view. After two months of sideways trading, the main force of the market has never been able to break the existing long-short pattern, and most of the funds on the market choose the strategy of holding the currency unchanged.

ETH briefly fell to around $233 on the weekend and then rebounded quickly today. After a short period of time, the price was blocked at $240 and entered a contraction consolidation. If it can stand above 235, it has a chance to break through $240 again. It is worth noting that the Defi project has once again entered a state of very active trading. Both on-chain transactions and various sub-proposed Defi projects have very eye-catching price performance.

The delivery contract of Huobi Contract has seen a significant increase in the rate. The premium of the week’s contract has exceeded 20% after annualization, and the premium relative to the quarterly contract has increased again. The premium of the delivery contract showed a slight upward trend. Contract holdings are also at a relatively high level recently.

Huobi Watch

On July 20th, according to Coindesk, the financial technology giant PayPal is planning to introduce encrypted transactions and has chosen Paxos to handle the supply of digital assets for the new service. It is reported that Paxos launched a cryptocurrency economic service last week. The company is a qualified custodian with a New York State Trust License, which means that it can hold BTC, ETH, gold and Digital assets, and API-based brokerage services provided by them, allow fintech companies to integrate cryptocurrency trading, custody, and sending functions into their applications. The source said that the official announcement of the partnership with PayPal may be announced this week.

Last month, PayPal’s cryptocurrency plan was revealed. In March of this year, PayPal stated in a letter to the European Commission (EuropeanCommission) that it is “monitoring the evolution of the crypto asset space” and has “taken unilateral and practical steps to further develop its Ability”, especially after the Libra stablecoin project was announced in June 2019. PayPal has been a member of the Libra project for the next 4 months. However, in October 2019, it cooperated with other payment giants such as MasterCard ( Mastercard) and Visa withdrew from the project.

Huobi Research Institute believes that if the cooperation between PayPal and Paxos is successful, it will be of positive significance to the development of the digital asset industry. And its impact on the current digital asset trading market may be greater than the birth of Libar. Because Libar is a strictly compliant stable currency, it is mainly used in the field of trade payment, and there is still a certain distance from the digital asset trading market, but the cooperation between PayPal and Paxos means that ordinary users have a smoother channel for the connection of mainstream digital assets. .

However, even if institutions can enter the market to realize the application of encryption technology, it will take a process for the market to mature. Especially after traditional institutions open blockchain business, the original users do not mean that they become users of the digital asset world. For example, last year Samsung built an Ethereum wallet in its new mobile phone, which is expected to have 40 million users, but this did not have a significant effect on the adoption and user growth of Ethereum.

Therefore, it cannot be directly expected that the more than 300 million users owned by PayPal will form a huge conversion of digital asset holders.
