    比特幣今年創新高

    作為全球最受追捧的數字貨幣,比特幣一直吸引著科技分析師和傳統投資公司的關注。

    近日,比特幣的價格再創2019年的新高,從去年11月以來,比特多在多數交易所首次逼近了6000美元大關。

    根據彭博綜合定價,比特幣的價格上漲了4.7%,達到5961美元。與此同時,其他交易較為活躍的數字貨幣的價格多數也有所上升。

    作為全球最受追捧的數字貨幣,比特幣一直吸引著科技分析師和傳統投資公司的關注。去年比特幣曾一度暴跌74%,跌破4,000美元。不過2019年以來,比特幣的價值再度暴漲50%以上。

    Kenetic Capital公司的任事股東朱沛宗在香港接受電話采訪時表示:“比特幣近期很可能再探新高,因為機構參與的整體力度正在變得越來越強。我們發現一個接一個的機構加入到了數字貨幣陣營,而比特幣又是數字貨幣的標桿。”

    據知情人士透露,富達投資計劃幾周內就將開始為其機構客戶買賣比特幣。今年早些時候,富達投資已經開始提供比特幣的存儲托管服務。

    朱沛宗的公司是一個區塊鏈投資與咨詢公司。他表示:“光靠富達自己,并不能改變整個虛擬貨幣行業。但富達與E*Trade、Ameritrade、羅賓漢(Robin Hood)等公司一起,情況就不一樣了。你會發現,很多這種資產經理和經紀人都在提供虛擬貨幣的零售業務和零售渠道。”

    有些投資者認為,比特幣突破6000美元大關后,可能很快會進入下一個瓶頸。倫敦數字貨幣定價網站ByteTree.com的創始人、基金經理查理·莫里斯表示,比特幣有可能會在6000到6500美元之間達到一個新的阻力位。

    莫里斯表示:“如果以前的支持力變成阻力,也沒有什么好奇怪的,這在市場上是很正常的。”

    然而從統一定價和套現的難度等意義上講,數字貨幣市場并不是一個正常的市場。這一點跟那些交易大量傳統資產(如藍籌股或基準主權債券)的證券交易所很不一樣。

    例如,在大型數字貨幣交易平臺Bitfinex上,比特幣的報價就比彭博綜合定價高出350美元左右。實際上,從5月3日起,比特幣在Bitfinex上的交易價格就已經高于6000美元了。

    有人猜測,這個平臺上的比特幣交易價格之所以更高,是因為投資者都急著在Bitfinex上出手他們的泰達幣。最近,有些與該交易平臺和泰達幣有關聯的公司因試圖掩蓋數億美元的損失而受到了紐約相關部門的調查,這也給宣稱可以與美元1:1兌換的泰達幣的前景蒙上了一層陰影。(財富中文網)

    Bitcoin climbed to a fresh 2019 high, approaching the $6,000 level for the first time since November on most cryptocurrency exchanges.

    The largest digital coin advanced as much as 4.7 percent to $5,961, according to Bloomberg composite pricing. Most of the other highly-traded tokens also pushed higher.

    The world’s most-followed cryptocurrency has been drawing attention from technical analysts and conventional investment firms as it claws its way back from last year’s 74 percent plunge that took it below $4,000. It has surged more than 50 percent in 2019.

    “Bitcoin is testing new near-term highs because the overall institutional involvement is becoming stronger and stronger,” Jehan Chu, managing partner at Kenetic Capital, said by phone from Hong Kong. “We’re just seeing institution after institution lining up to the thesis of digital currency, and Bitcoin is the standard bearer.”

    Fidelity Investments, which began a custody service to store Bitcoin earlier this year, plans to buy and sell it for institutional customers within a few weeks, according to a person familiar with the matter.

    “Fidelity alone doesn’t move the entire needle, but Fidelity with E*Trade and Ameritrade and Robin Hood and a whole host,” said Chu, whose firm is a blockchain investment and advisory company. “You’re seeing a critical mass of these types of asset managers and brokers providing retail exposure and retail access to crypto.”

    Some investors who expect Bitcoin to break above $6,000 see it quickly finding a new resistance level. The token will likely find fresh headwinds in the $6,000-$6,500 range, said Charlie Morris, a fund manager and founder of cryptocurrency price discovery site ByteTree.com in London.

    “It would be unsurprising if that former support became resistance — something that is quite normal in markets,” Morris said.

    The crypto market, however, is not normal in the sense of having uniform pricing or ease of arbitrage, as are some of the securities exchanges that handle the biggest conventional assets, like blue-chip stocks or benchmark sovereign bonds.

    On Bitfinex, for example, one of the larger crypto exchanges, Bitcoin is being quoted at a premium of about $350 to Bloomberg composite prices. In fact, it has traded above the $6,000 level on Bitfinex since May 3.

    The platform is subject to speculation that investors are paying extra because they’re desperate to exiting the Tether stablecoin on Bitfinex. Several affiliated companies which control both the exchange and the stablecoin are under investigation by New York officials for allegedly engaging in a cover-up to hide hundreds of millions in losses, casting a shadow over the pledge that each Tether is worth $1.
