🎓 Penny Wise: Bitcoin’s Difficulty Adjustment
Hi, I'm Penny Wise 👋
Today, we're diving into the Bitcoin Difficulty Adjustment which keeps the Bitcoin Network secure and ensures the consistent mining of blocks. 🔨
📈 Trending Topics in the News
The Scoop🕵️♂️: Someone sent a transaction of 26.9 BTC to Satoshi Nakamoto’s address, the so-called Genesis Block. The tip is spendable, assuming someone has control of that address, the original funds in that address are not. The funds were allegedly withdrawn from Binance 16 days prior, and moved again 1 hour before the transaction.
Why you should care🚨: Tracking transactions on the Bitcoin network can be fascinating. While pseudonymous, transactions are fully transparent and interesting patterns can often be gleaned. Craig Wright, an Australian entrepreneur, claims to be Satoshi. He is known for having sued several Bitcoiners who contested his claim. Many Bitcoiners have stated that if a judge required them to pay a fine to Craig, they would simply send the fine to Satoshi’s Bitcoin address, which the real Satoshi presumably still holds the private keys to (if he is still alive).

2. ETF Approval
The Scoop🕵️♂️: It is anticipated that the US ETFs (Exchange Traded Funds) will be approved Wednesday 10th January. NYDIG has written an excellent summary of the approval in their monthly newsletter here. If the SEC (the US Securities and Exchange Commission) decide not to approve the ETF, they will have to come with a new set of reasons as to why. This is possible, but the research team at NYDIG think it is improbable.
Why you should care🚨: 💸 While Bitcoin ETFs were already approved in neighbouring Canada in February 2021, the sheer size of the US market and the investment houses involved is expected to rally the price. Many Bitcoin Maxis are neutral to negative on the ETF approvals, largely because they create custodial “paper” Bitcoin, removing all the benefits of self-custody that the Bitcoin bearer asset brings with it. Not your keys, not your Bitcoin. What it will mean, is that many more individuals and businesses will be able to get Bitcoin price exposure through traditional financial rails. Decide for yourself if you think this is a good thing or not.
