Tesla bought Bitcoin, Mastercard will also support cryptocurrency

Hello everyone, this is our weekly crypto digest. Here you’ll find everything from a weekly market summary and top news to the hottest new listings on exchanges, and even memes to cheer you up. To get these updates as soon as we post them, follow us on Twitter.

Weekly Market Summary

On Monday, Tesla announced that it bought $1.5 billion in Bitcoin. It was, reportedly, done to start accepting the cryptocurrency as payment. The price of Bitcoin soared 15.4% to around $44,500 Monday in reaction to Tesla’s announcement, according to Coinbase.

The company said it purchased Bitcoin for “more flexibility to further diversify and maximize returns on our cash.” Tesla is the first automaker, who plans to accept the cryptocurrency as payment.

MasterCard has announced plans to support cryptocurrencies in 2021, paving the way for its nearly one billion users to spend digital assets at more than 30 million merchants. Although it hasn’t specified which coins will be supported.

The firm believes this may open merchants up to new customers and build loyalty with existing customers who are already migrating to digital assets over traditional fiat options.

Trust in the USDT coin is increasing

As of January 1, 2021, the stablecoin’s market cap stood at just over $20 billion, soaring to $26.6 billion by February 1. But during the last few weeks, as Bitcoin’s price spiked over $40,000, it has continued to surge. The company is currently holding $30.5 billion in total assets.

The demand for USDT is mainly driven by large investors who prefer to execute their trades via over-the-counter (OTC) desks. Exchanges working with those OTC desks need more liquidity on their platforms, hence the growing demand for the asset.

ECB’s Lagarde on crypto 

European Central Bank president Christine Lagarde doesn’t think central banks will hold Bitcoin anytime soon.

This isn’t the first negative comment Lagarde has made about Bitcoin. She previously argued that this coin is highly speculative and used for “funny business” and, as a result, must be regulated. 

But despite the skepticism over Bitcoin, Lagarde conceded that the pandemic has boosted demand for digital currencies.

UMA creates a general framework for creating synthetic assets on Ethereum.

UMA (universal market access) is based on the concepts of traditional (fiat) financial derivatives and, as an open source protocol, enables the creation and verification of trustworthy financial contracts with which anyone, anywhere, can design and build their own generally accessible financial products.

UMA creates a general framework for creating synthetic assets on Ethereum.

Ethereum’s smart contracts and the UMA framework create a trustworthy, permissionless mechanism that secures a contract through economic incentives alone. This is important because it significantly lowers the barriers to market entry, because the time-consuming and expensive legal process as a necessary measure in traditional markets is eliminated and the implementation of the contracts can only be based on incentive margins.
