$400K Bitcoin predicted this year, NFT warning, Instagram influencer in trouble: Hodler’s Digest, March 21–27

Coming every Saturday, Hodlers Digest will help you track every single important news story that happened this week. The best (and worst) quotes, adoption and regulation highlights, leading coins, predictions and much more a week on Cointelegraph in one link.

Top Stories This Week

Stock-to-flow creator doesnt think Bitcoins bull market is done

Bitcoins price seems to have stalled below $60,000 after surging to all-time highs earlier in March. But on the bright side, Fridays $6-billion expiration of options a record-breaking sum didnt deliver the slump that some were dreading.

The ever-optimistic PlanB says that we are nowhere near the end of the bull run, tweeting: Bitcoin is just getting started.

YouTuber and derivatives trader Tone Vays also believes the best is yet to come, telling Cointelegraph: While it is still possible for Bitcoin to make a lower low for the month in the $48,000 range, I believe we will go up to above $70,000 before June.

In recent days, BTC plunged to depths of $51,212.85 the lowest price seen in two weeks. Soon afterward, Michal van de Poppe warned that BTC needed to regain the $53,200$53,800 area to revive bullish momentum in the near term, or else more downside was possible. So far this weekend, that threat appears to have been averted.

Elon Musk says Tesla now accepts Bitcoin from U.S. customers

With tech stocks also taking a hammering at certain points this week, even Elon Musks announcement that Tesla now accepts Bitcoin from U.S. customers only delivered a temporary boost to BTCs price.

The billionaire CEO and Technoking said that the electric vehicle manufacturer would hold on to the Bitcoin it accumulates through sales rather than convert it into fiat. He also confirmed that support for crypto payments would be rolled out internationally later this year.

Teslas decision to shun fork products such as Bitcoin Cash proved calamitous for BCH, which tumbled to new all-time lows against BTC.

But some experts have warned that snapping up a Tesla using crypto might not be a smart move for now, at least. Ark Invest founder Cathie Wood has urged investors not to use their BTC for purchases until the Internal Revenue Service introduces some more sensible tax policies on crypto assets.

The U.S. currently regards Bitcoin as property rather than currency. This means that irrespective of whether you sell BTC for profit or use it to buy a shiny car, its considered to be a taxable event.

The NFT of record: New York Times raises $500,000 for charity in NFT column sale

Its now time for our whistle-stop tour of NFT news. You ready? Here goes.

First up, a New York Times reporter got a pleasant surprise when he decided to try and auction off one of his articles as an NFT. Just one day later, it sold for 350 ETH (worth almost $600,000 as of Saturday) with the proceeds going to charity.

Another big sale came when Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey sold a tokenized representation of his first-ever tweet for more than $2.9 million, also for good causes.

Data from Google Trends suggests that interest in nonfungible tokens has now surged to levels last seen during the ICO craze of 2017. Lego also dropped a hint that it may be getting involved in this flourishing sector after writing a cryptic tweet that said: Zeros and ones but still a brick.

Inevitably though, it wasnt all good news. SEC commissioner Hester Peirce also known as Crypto Mom has warned that selling fractionalized NFTs could end up breaking the law as this could result in the creation of an investment product.

Thetas mainnet 3.0 launch delayed until June, causing tokens price to sink

The crypto-powered esports streaming app Theta announced this week that it was delaying the launch of mainnet 3.0 until June.

In an announcement, the company said that it is still working to incorporate some building blocks for a nonfungible token marketplace. This is one of the reasons why a more thorough code review and testing is required, prompting the expected launch date to be pushed back from April 21 to June 30.

The network added: While delays are never ideal, we think this change is the prudent way forward to ensuring a successful mainnet 3.0 launch.

Investors in Theta took a dim view of the announcement. The token had hit all-time highs of $14.99 on Wednesday, but it fell by more than 25% in the 24 hours that followed.

Technoking and master of coin Elon Musk and Tesla CFO adopt new titles

Forget Tesla CEO Elon Musk has been promoted. According to a new SEC filing, the billionaire should now be referred to as Technoking of Tesla.

His chief financial officer, Zach Kirkhorn, has also been given a promotion to Master of Coin. Both men are going to retain their respective positions.

Musk has reason to celebrate, with figures suggesting that Tesla has been sitting on close to $19 million in unrealized profit per day since announcing its $1.5-billion Bitcoin purchase. This almost eclipses the $721 million in profit it made from selling 500,000 cars in 2020.

The billionaire also waded into the trendy world of nonfungible tokens this week when he announced he was planning to sell a musical NFT, with lyrics based on the hype surrounding the technology Its verified, its guaranteed. Very catchy.

Despite bids exceeding $1.1 million on the Valuables platform, Musk later took his ball home, tweeting: Actually, doesnt feel quite right selling this. Will pass.

What a shame.

Most Memorable Quotations

By banning crypto, India will end up with the lowest reserve of the most important currency the world has ever seen.

Raj Chowdhury, HashCash CEO

Dont try to act like Saylor wont take profits eventually, cause he will along with every other fund on the planet. Then theyll buy back lower.

Michael Saylor, MicroStrategy CEO

I think that it would be very likely that you will have [Bitcoin], under a certain set of circumstances, outlawed the way gold was outlawed.

Ray Dalio, hedge fund founder

Im not a big fan myself of encouraging or asking or wanting us to participate in the issuing of currency.

Brad Smith, Microsoft president

There is little social value in helping Elon Musk earn yet another $1 million.

Jim Cramer, CNBC host

Prediction of the Week

Bitcoin can reach $400,000 in 2021 as risk-off reserve asset Bloomberg

Bloomberg Intelligence senior commodity strategist Mike McGlone believes 2021 marks a watershed moment for the worlds biggest cryptocurrency.

He says BTC is well on its way to becoming a global digital reserve asset and it may be transitioning toward a risk-off asset.

Based on previous behavior, his analysis suggests that prices could peak at $400,000 this year. That eclipses other estimates such as the stock-to-flow model, which calls for an average of $288,000 between now and 2024.

FUD of the Week

Microsoft president says fintechs should leave currency to central banks

Microsoft president Brad Smith has said fintech firms have no business issuing private digital currencies, arguing that money matters should be left to central banks and governments.

Speaking at an online conference organized by the Bank for International Settlements, he said: I am not a big fan myself of encouraging or asking or wanting us [tech firms] to participate in the issuing of currency.

The remarks put Microsoft at odds with Facebook, which is continuing to pursue the launch of its Diem stablecoin project. Formerly known as Libra, the project sparked fierce criticism from financial regulators with many of them warning the digital asset could pose significant risks to the global economy.

Instagram influencer charged over duping followers out of Bitcoin worth $2.5 million

An Instagram influencer has been charged with wire fraud after he allegedly scammed followers out of Bitcoin worth $2.5 million.

Jay Mazini who had close to 1 million followers and was known for cash giveaways is accused of promising victims that he would buy Bitcoin off them at inflated prices. But its claimed that, when the crypto was sent, he didnt transfer the funds as promised.

An FBI official said: A quick search of the interwebs today will reveal an entirely different image of this multi-million-dollar scammer.

Mazini is currently being held on state charges in New Jersey and will face New York courts at a later date. If convicted, he faces up to 20 years imprisonment.

The last dip is the deepest as wife leaves husband for buying more Bitcoin

And we end with a sorry tale that suggests Bitcoin has caused a break-up.

A man on Reddit claims his wife left him after he refused to sell his Bitcoin when prices hit $60,000 and loaded up on more during the recent dip.

The user, u/Parking_Meater, said his wife packed her bags and has now gone to live with her sister.

He wrote: She super mad that I didnt sell at 60k and looks at the price often scolding me. I keep telling her we dont need the money and have the cash. We live nice. However today she caught me buying the dip and was so pissed she almost hit me!

Uh oh.
