New York Digital Investment Group (NYDIG), a well-known Bitcoin Strategy Fund, raised $ 100 million from insurance companies. With this, insurers, traditionally very conservative investors, are venturing into the crypto market.

Insurers have traditionally been concerned with security

Typically, insurance companies tend to be very conservative investors and look for low risk in their investments. The favorites of insurers are, therefore, more corporate and government bonds. Investments by insurers in highly volatile markets such as the crypto market were previously considered ruled out.

However, due to the currently extremely low key interest rates, the companies’ strategy is slowly changing, and they are becoming aware of the crypto…

Even after the recent hard fork “Mary,” Cardano’s development status remains “Work in Progress.” Founder Charles Hoskinson revealed details about the roadmap on his YouTube channel.

With the next hard fork Alonzo, which enables smart contract applications on Cardano, the network conquers the next major milestone on the way to a fully decentralized multi-asset environment. According to Charles Hoskinson, Cardano founder and previously co-founder of Ethereum, the developments are fully on the roadmap schedule. …

In addition to large institutional investors, cryptocurrencies are also increasingly on the radar of large investment banks. Goldman Sachs CEO David Salomon talks about his assessment in an interview.

For a long time, Wall Street viewed the events of the crypto sector rather skeptically or had problems taking Bitcoin & Co. seriously at all. Finally, however, more and more signs of a change in values ​​can be seen. The most recent example is an interview that Goldman Sachs CEO David Solomon gave to Canadian broadcaster CNBC. …

During the old season, coins like Litecoin (LTC) shine. Why the “crypto silver” is still an extremely bad investment for Hodler.

It’s the old season. In the slipstream of Bitcoin, the workhorse, Altcoins, in particular, are doing their best. Litecoin, in particular, has proven to be a worthwhile investment: Within the last 7 days, the Bitcoin fork made 16 percent growth and stood at 225 US dollars by the editorial deadline.

The price increase could well continue in the medium term. If you look at the growth of new addresses in the Litecoin cosmos, you can see that the curve…

The Graph wants to become a cornerstone of the dApp landscape — what is behind the hype?

Conservative market observers now admit that the crypto market has gone into turbo mode in 2021. Led by Bitcoin, there are hardly any projects that have not seen massive price increases in the last few weeks and months. But with The Graph (GRT), a comparatively young token literally shot through the roof in February and has been moving sideways in a relatively stable manner since then.

Since its ICO in October 2020, GRT has grown from $ 0.03 (USD) to $ 1.76 (as…

The Bitcoin bulls are far from exhausted. But even those who have not yet invested in Bitcoin can still score.

  • Polkadot was trading at $ 46.86 last night.
  • Solana was also able to top its all-time high over the weekend.
  • Both cryptocurrencies continue to show an extremely strong performance.

Bitcoin took a little breather this week. BTC touched the $ 60,000 briefly, but there wasn’t much more exciting. In a phase of low price fluctuations in the key currency of the crypto market, the altcoins are often particularly strong and this picture was confirmed again this week.

The development of Polkadot and Solana was particularly interesting. Both were able to top their previous all-time high yesterday. On the one hand…

Since the integration of Chainlink into the Filecoin network, FIL has increased by almost 370 percent in the last month. The integration partner, on the other hand, cannot benefit.

Filecoin (FIL) is clearly one of last month’s winners. In the last 24 hours alone, the cryptocurrency was able to increase by almost 24 percent. If you look at the past 30 days, the decentralized crypto project can look back on a full 368 percent. FIL even reached a new all-time high (US $ 158.56) and was at US $ 154.57 at the time of going to press.
