LikeCoin New Wallet Address Format: The Story of “like1”.

Bi-weekly update. 2022.04.01.. — — 🔎 Focus Story - — Migration to like1 wallet prefix. — The LikeCoin wallet address will soon be migrated to like1 from cosmos1, with backward compatibility of cosmos1. The development has been in the final stage. What is the story behind such move, and how Likers can benefit from it? — It Started with Cosmos SDK…. — On 15th November 2019, LikeCoin upgraded from ERC-20 to a chain built on Cosmos SDK, and became one of the first Cosmos-based blockchains. At the outset, the development team decided to use cosmos1, which was the same as Cosmos Hub’s native token ATOM, as LikeCoin’s address prefix. However, Cosmos and IBC blockchains' booming led to different address prefixes, e.g., osmo1 from Osmosis, demos1 from Desmos, and it has become a norm in the Cosmos community. Keeping cosmos1 as its prefix, LikeCoin fell behind its counterparts and faced many difficulties in integrating with other Cosmos-based ecosystems. — Technical Tests. — Since the passing of proposal #33, the dev teams from Liker Land and Oursky have been working on solutions to support both cosmos1 and like1 prefixes to ensure backward compatibility. The chain upgrade may affect LikeCoin’s functionalities on various systems, including Keplr, BigDipper, dao.like.co, Ledger, CLI, validator nodes and Liker Land App, a lot of testing and debugging are needed before the ...

Andre Cronje on What's it Like to be a Crypto Company

    Andre Cronje – the so-called “Vice President of Memes” for the Fantom Foundation – provided an insider’s view into how the company has remained cash-flow positive across the past 4 years.  The developer noted that the foundation would “likely not be operational today” without decentralized finance (DeFi), and suspects the same is true for other firms.  Scaling Over One Cycle As explained in a blog post from Cronje on Sunday, Fantom ended 2018 with a fairly unprofitable ETH trade. After raising $40,000,000 worth of the cryptocurrency in June, it sold those holding after a major price correction leading up to December. At this point, the firm had less than $5 million remaining.  This forced the company to become extremely frugal over the following year, while periodically selling some of its native FTM tokens to fund unplanned expenses. Its primary costs during this time were related to paying off listing fees to exchanges and sponsorship fees to influencers.  “We decide[d] to never pay for exchange listings or influencers again,” wrote Cronje.  Starting in February 2020, Fantom began “aggressively” participating in DeFi, using its profits to purchase FTM off the market. By March, the company was already earning 20% APY on $3  million in funds, making for $600,000 per year. Combined with yield farming later that year on both Compound (COMP) and Synthetix (SNX), the foundation brought... read More



'Cryptocurrencies Like Bitcoin Make Global Commerce Easy'— Founder...

    Despite the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN)'s Feb. 5, 2021 directive that instructed banks to block crypto entities from the financial system, the demand and use of cryptocurrencies have continued to grow. Not even the central bank's subsequent crackdown on crypto entities it accused of defying the directive has succeeded in suffocating demand for cryptocurrencies. Africans Need 'Access to the World of Cryptocurrency' In contrast, Nigerians appear to have shunned the CBN's digital currency — the e-naira. Despite the central bank's attempts to present the e-naira as an alternative to cryptocurrencies, local residents seemingly still prefer the latter. According to Benjamin Eseoghene, the founder and CEO of a local crypto exchange, the residents' reluctance to use the e-naira could be tied to the CBN's failure to fully sensitize the masses about it. Eseoghene, whose company Roqqu.com recently received approval to operate in Europe, told Bitcoin.com News that Nigerian residents prefer cryptocurrencies because they are borderless. Meanwhile, Nigeria's continuing shortage of foreign exchange, as well as the local currency's decline, are other factors that push Nigerian residents towards cryptocurrencies. Nigeria's population of over 200 million people means the country is one of the world's biggest crypto markets and this naturally attracts global crypto giants. However, the presence of such big companies has not deterred local entrepreneurs like Eseoghene. In his written resp... read More



Gold Bug Peter Schiff Insists This Is 'Not a Crypto Winter,' Economist S...

    Since bitcoin started falling from its all-time high last year, the economist and gold bug, Peter Schiff, made sure everyone knows that he wholeheartedly believes the leading crypto asset will fall to zero. Now that FTX has collapsed, Schiff has doubled down on his belief and he's wasted no opportunities to dunk on bitcoin throughout the chaos. On Monday, Schiff said on Twitter that currently, it's 'not a crypto winter' nor a 'crypto ice age,' because that implies a spring thaw is coming. Schiff insists bitcoin's price is not going to bounce back and this time around he thinks we'll see a 'crypto extinction.'Peter Schiff Expects a Crypto Extinction Rather Than a Thawing Crypto Winter Peter Schiff has been criticizing bitcoin (BTC) a great deal more these days ever since the FTX collapse last week. Schiff detailed on Monday that he was scheduled to deliver a keynote presentation at the ​​Dubai Precious Metals Conference (DPMC) on Nov. 21-22. 'Last year the keynote was delivered by [Microstrategy's Michael Saylor],' Schiff tweeted. 'He told the audience to sell all their gold and buy bitcoin. On the day he spoke Bitcoin traded above $60K, while gold was trading near $1,850. Since then gold is down 4% and Bitcoin is down 73%.' The DPMC schedule says that the 'financial expert and author will discuss the end of dollar hegemony, the demise of bitcoin, and the global remonetisation of gold.'

Why Coinbase Won't End Up Like FTX: Brian Armstrong

    Coinbase CEO Brian Armstrong argued on Tuesday that his exchange isn’t vulnerable to the sort of fallout suffered by FTX this week.  He said the “event” surrounding FTX appears to stem from risky business practices that Coinbase does not engage in.  Coinbase’s Business Model Armstrong began by expressing sympathy for everyone involved in the FTX situation – particularly those customers who have potentially lost funds. Early on Tuesday, FTX appeared to have stopped processing withdrawals for hours, and on-chain data shows that is still the case.  FTX and its CEO, Sam Bankman-Fried maintained on Twitter beforehand that the company’s assets were “fine,” and that its withdrawal queue was returning to more “reasonable levels.” However, the CEO confirmed the following day that FTX was caught in a “liquidity crunch” from overwhelming withdrawal requests, and needed Binance’s support to navigate it to protect customer funds.  “This event appears to be the result of risky business practices, including conflicts of interest between deeply intertwined entities, and mis-use of customer funds (lending user assets)” explained Armstrong.  By contrast, the CEO said Coinbase doesn’t touch customer funds once deposited unless directed to do so by the customer.  The exchange has clarified this in previous statements, including after the fallout of Celsius, Voyager, and T... read More



Current Bitcoin Bear Market Exactly Like Previous Ones But There's a Cat...

    In its ‘week on-chain’ report on Oct. 31, analytics provider Glassnode made a number of comparisons between the current Bitcoin market cycle bottom and those from previous bear markets. Last week’s relief rally appears to have fizzled out with a double-top rejection, as reported by CryptoPotato yesterday. Glassnode stated that the market was “hammering out a Bitcoin bottom, with almost textbook resemblance to prior cycle lows.” It reported that, as in previous cycles, the Bitcoin bear market has inflicted severe financial loss on investors and hodlers. The last thing that remains is a component of time and investor apathy, it added. #Bitcoin has rallied back above the key $20k psychological level after many months of low volatility. In this edition, we analyze how Bitcoin may be hammering out a near-textbook bear market floor and what risks may lay on the road ahead. Read it here https://t.co/WrsifLhxHC — glassnode (@glassnode) October 31, 2022 Hammering Out a Bottom Glassnode used a number of metrics, such as Realized Price and Mayer Multiples, to determine cycle lows and a bottom discovery phase. Realized price, or the average acquisition price per coin for the wider market, is currently at $21,105, according to Woo Charts. When spot prices trade below the realized price, “the aggregate market can be considered to be in unrealized loss,” noted Glassnode. This has been the case for the best part of the past four months.

Mango Markets Exploiter Says Profitable Traders Like Him Attract Jealous...

    Avraham Eisenberg, the software coder and crypto trader behind Mango Markets' $100 million exploit, believes 'profitable traders' like himself attract a lot of jealousy and hate from other crypto traders. Eisenberg shared his belief with Laura Shin during an interview on the Unchained Podcast on Friday. He argued that the public is bound to hate and criticize people who execute profitable arbitrages. Hate for Profitable Traders Recall that the Mango Markets exploit, which happened two weeks ago, drained the platform of its liquidity, leaving users unable to withdraw their assets. For Eisenberg, the incident was a 'highly profitable trading strategy,' but the crypto community thinks otherwise. Eisenberg and his team executed a self-funded economic attack by manipulating the oracle price of MNGO, the native token of Mango Markets. The trader believes his team's actions were legal since they used the protocol as designed. Likewise, the affected project has been unable to press charges because the exploit could not be categorized as a hack. During the interview, Eisenberg referred to profitable traders like him, who identify exploitable bugs in codes, alerted the protocols in question, and have earned billions from their discovery. 'I think that when there's any profitable trader, it's gonna attract some jealousy and some hate, and like you look at some of the stuff people say about Sam, and he's obviously made billions of dollars with various other profitable trades. He gets lo... read More

The crypto market is looking increasingly welcoming as many altcoins continue producing over 30% gains. The likes of DOGE have seen some great runs in recent times rallying from a low of $0.055 to a high of $0.1 after the news broke out of Elon Musk taking over Twitter, considering he is referred to as DOGE father. This has affected DOGE positively, with many speculating if Shiba Inu (SHIB) can follow in the footstep of DOGE. (Data from Binance) Shiba Inu (SHIB) Price Analysis On The Weekly Chart. read More



Massive Bitcoin Volatility Incoming, Crypto Market Like a Coiled Spring ...

    The cryptocurrency market is calm in the past few weeks, with no considerable movements happening in any direction. The major exceptions to the lack of volatility seem to be event-driven occasions like on October 14th, when the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics announced the inflation numbers for September. The Bitcoin price went on a rollercoaster, plunging and then skyrocketing within the hour. Apart from this, though, the market has been rather static. Now, Glassnode - a popular analytics resource - argues that it's like a coiled spring due for a burst of volatility. Bitcoin Price Consolidation Continues Reiterating the above, Glassnode points out that the Bitcoin market continues to consolidate within a fairly tight range and that almost 'all of the extreme prices of the weekly range' were reached during a window of just 24 hours. In response to US inflation data coming in slightly hotter than expectations, BTC prices traded down to $18,338, followed by a quick rally to a high of $19,855, before completing a round trip to the weekly open price. At the time of this writing, the BTC price sits at around $19,594, up 2% on the day and attempting another shot at the critical resistance at $20K. According to Glassnode, it is very uncommon for the BTC market to reach a period of such low realized volatility. Most of the prior instances of the kind were also preceding a highly volatile move. For example, in the following 1-week realized volatility chart, we can see that wh... read More

Is A Spike In Bitcoin Open Interest Forecasting A 2021 Like Bullrun To $...

    Bitcoin is losing steam on low timeframes as the price is rejected from the $20,000 and seems poised to re-test previous support levels. The cryptocurrency enjoys a short-lived bullish price action, but buyers have been unable to push further.  At the time of writing, Bitcoin (BTC) trades at $20,000 moving sideways in the last 24 hours and with a 5% profit in the last 7 days. Other cryptocurrencies in the top 10 by market cap record negative performance and steeper losses than BTC’s price except for Dogecoin and XRP. BTC's price moving sideways on the daily chart. Source: BTCUSDT Tradingview Open Interest Follows Bitcoin Price, What Are The Implication? As NewsBTC reported based on data from Arcane Research, the Bitcoin price bullish momentum has been followed by participants in the derivatives sector. In Late September and early October, as BTC’s price breached resistance at $20,500, the Open Interest (OI) for future contracts trended to the upside. Quickly, this OI plummeted as the bulls were unable to follow through on their assault. Something similar happened over the past week with OI spiking, led by the price action. The metric is generally perceived as bearish if the price is moving up, as it indicates traders taking leverage long positions to chase the momentum. Larger players often used the liquidity served by these leverage positions, pushing the price in the opposite direction, as Bitcoin has seen in the last 24 hours. However, a longer-term incre... read More



'Trading Like a Lehman Moment' — Credit Suisse, Deutsche Bank Suff...

    It's been more than a decade since the financial crisis in 2007-2008 when Lehman Brothers, the fourth largest investment bank in the U.S., collapsed and filed bankruptcy. Close to 14 years later, Credit Suisse and Deutsche Bank, two of the world's largest banks, are suffering from distressed valuations and the banks' credit default insurance levels are approaching degrees not seen since 2008.Credit Suisse and Deutsche Bank Valuations Have Dive-Bombed - Investors Discuss the Systemic Risk to the Global Economy During the first week of October, the world economy continues to look bleak as energy and gas prices have reached record highs, inflation in many countries is the highest in 40 years, supply chains are fractured, equity markets have shed significant value, and the tensions between the West and Russia has elevated. Amid this nasty economy, two of the largest investment banks are floundering from distressed valuations. Market data shows that Credit Suisse Group AG (NYSE: CS) and Deutsche Bank AG (NYSE: DB) are trading at extremely low values not seen since the 2008 financial crisis. At the end of August, Deutsche Bank analyzed the issues tethered to Credit Suisse, and the bank's analysts noted that there was a $4.1 billion gap that needs to be filled in order to combat the financial institution's financial well-being. Furthermore, Credit Suisse's credit default insurance (CDS) levels resemble the same CDS levels Lehman Brothers had just before the bank's bankruptcy. Credi... read More



California Takes Action Against 11 Crypto Firms Allegedly Operating Like...

    California's regulator has targeted 11 crypto-related entities which allegedly violated the state's securities laws. The watchdog also claimed that their business model was in the manner of a Ponzi or pyramid scheme. The Department of Financial Protection and Innovation (DFPI), in an announcement on Tuesday, stated that while all the accused companies offered unregistered securities to customers, most sought funds from investors to conduct crypto trading on their behalf. Also, one of the platforms allegedly asked for cryptocurrencies to build metaverse software. Consequently, the DFPI issued a desist and refrain order to the 11 entities. An excerpt from the announcement reads: 'The entities are all alleged to have used investor funds to pay purported profits to other investors, in the manner of a Ponzi scheme. Furthermore, each of the entities had a referral program that operated in the manner of a pyramid scheme. The entities promised to pay investors commissions if they recruited new investors, and additional commissions if the investors that they recruited, in turn, recruited new investors.' Some of the companies involved in the case, which, according to the California regulator, purportedly operate crypto trading services, include Pegasus, Elevate Pass, Remabit, and World Over the Counter Limited.

Three Reasons Bitcoin Is Oversold Like Crazy Right Now (Opinion)

    Bitcoin price retested the $18K support level Friday. That's the third time in a week, with the crypto failing to pass resistance at $19.5K twice on the 5-day chart. The crypto exchange price for a piece of the world's original blockchain currency continues to consolidate at around $19K. That has been the trend for Bitcoin (BTC) over the month of September. Over the six-month chart, year-to-date, and one-year view, bitcoin is deeply in the red. It's the third prolonged capitulation in the crypto's history, called a 'crypto winter' by longtime traders. Yet despite the deep freeze on prices, here are three reasons why Bitcoin is oversold like crazy right now. The Bitcoin Hash Rate Hit All-Time High in September Bearing in mind that exchange market prices are ultimately seeking to evaluate fundamentals, the network's fundamentals are strong. In fact, the Bitcoin network's hash rate marked a new all-time high in September. On Sept 17, the hash rate rose to 234m TH/s (terahashes per second). Furthermore, that represents an increase of 55% over Bitcoin's July hash rate. A fundamental analysis of the bitcoin price might take into account the price of the amount of network infrastructure at work. The hash rate is a trusty and handy measure of that. With the price down so far for the year as the hash rate hits new records, BTC looks very oversold. Bitcoin Miners Keep Adding ASIC Units and Mining Facilities Meanwhile, even with the hash rate sky high, miners keep building and building ... read More



JPMorgan CEO Jamie Dimon Tells Congress Crypto Tokens Like Bitcoin Are '...

    JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon said in a U.S. congressional hearing that crypto tokens, like bitcoin, are 'decentralized Ponzi schemes.' He told lawmakers: 'I'm a major skeptic on crypto tokens which you call currency.'JPMorgan CEO Jamie Dimon Calls Crypto Ponzi Schemes Jamie Dimon, the CEO of JPMorgan Chase & Co., shared his view about cryptocurrencies, naming bitcoin in particular, in a congressional hearing Wednesday. Responding to a question by Representative Josh Gottheimer (D-NJ) about the rapid development of digital assets, Dimon emphasized the importance of separating cryptocurrencies from other innovations that he said are 'real,' like blockchain, decentralized finance (defi), and 'tokens that do something.' The executive opined: I'm a major skeptic on crypto tokens which you call currency, like bitcoin. They are decentralized Ponzi schemes. 'And the notion that it's good for anybody is unbelievable,' he continued. The JPMorgan boss proceeded to reference that billions of dollars are lost each year through crypto, linking cryptocurrencies to crimes such as ransomware payments, money laundering, sex-trafficking, and theft. He emphasized that crypto is 'dangerous.' The JPMorgan executive also talked about stablecoins, which he said would not be problematic with proper regulation. 'There'd be nothing wrong with a stablecoin, which is like a money market fund, properly regulated,' Dimon stated. Regarding blockchain, he affirmed that JPMorgan is 'a big user of blockchain... read More



Vitalik Believes Crypto Volatility Will Stabilize Like Gold

    Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin was recently interviewed on the state of the crypto markets, and the future of blockchain technology. He predicted that crypto market volatility will slow to that of gold and stocks in the medium-term – though he doesn’t know at what price.  The developer also spoke about proof of work, proof of stake, and the reluctance of Bitcoiners to embrace the latter.  Where Will Crypto Settle Down? In an interview with blogger Noah Smith, Vitalik said he was surprised that the current crypto bear market hadn’t taken effect sooner than it did. While prices were high, he was sure they’d eventually drop – he just didn’t exactly know when.  “It feels like people are reading too much into what is ultimately cyclical dynamics that crypto has always had and probably will continue to have for a long time,” he said. Crypto has historically experienced four-year market cycles, in line with the roughly four-year halving of Bitcoin’s supply issuance rate. While Bitcoin’s price floor has risen steadily across each cycle, so too has the asset’s percentage return in each boom. As such, Smith asked Vitalik if this means Bitcoin is following an adoption curve, where the market eventually saturates and mimics the price stability of gold. The developer agreed. “I definitely think that in the medium-term future cryptocurrencies will settle down and be only about as volatile as gold or... read More



Mad Money Jim Cramer Says the Fed Will Take Down Speculative Assets Like...

    Jim Crame is back at it again with yet another U-turn in terms of his cryptocurrency stance. He called bitcoin and altcoins speculative assets and warned individuals to refrain from investing in them. In the past few years, Cramer has displayed a somewhat controversial view of the crypto sector. In 2021, he insisted on receiving his salary in bitcoin. Following the major price correction, though, he abandoned those plans, selling almost all of his BTC holdings. 'Don't get Crypto'd' In yet another change of heart, the host of CNBC's 'Mad Money' – Jim Cramer - sounded a note of caution to investors to avoid diversifying their portfolios with cryptocurrencies. In his view, the US Federal Reserve is committed to bringing down speculative assets, claiming that digital currencies fit that bill: 'Look, Fed chief Jay Powell told us that we need to stop doing stupid things with our money... What matters is that we just have to get through it intact. Don't get memed. Don't get SPAC'd. Don't get crypto'd. And you'll get through this thicket and find yourself in a much better time when we are sufficiently oversold for a huge bounce.' Jim Cramer, Source: CNBC Cramer believes that the Fed has the capability to wash out all projects that could be described as 'gambling.' However, the institution might harm some meaningful ones in the process, too, the American added. Earlier this week, Bitfury's CEO - Brian Brooks - also touched upon the Fed and how its approach to tackling inflation ... read More



The Merge Will Rally Ethereum Like a Bitcoin Halving: Arthur Hayes

    In his latest blog post, former BitMEX CEO Arthur Hayes broke down how he expects Ethereum traders to react before and after the merge. Based on the technicals of the upgrade, he suspects that Ethereum will rally after a successful transition in September, similarly to how Bitcoin rallies during its periodic halving cycles.  The Theory of Reflexivity In an article titled “ETH-flexive,” Hayes centers his bullish thesis around George Soros’s “theory of reflexivity.” The theory posits that there is a feedback loop between market prices, and the expectations held by market participants for a given market situation. In the context of the merge, Hayes believes this phenomenon can rally Ethereum’s price due to the reflexive relationship between its price, and its deflationary properties.  “If the merge is successful… traders will buy ETH today, knowing that the higher the price goes, the more the network will be used and the more deflationary it will become, driving the price higher, causing the network to be used more, and so on and so forth,” he explained.  “This is a virtuous circle for bulls.” The merge will usher in two major changes for Ethereum: it will shift its consensus mechanism from proof of work to proof of stake, and also reduce ETH’s supply issuance rate by roughly 90%. This has led some to nickname the event the 'triple halving.' Combined with EIP-1559 – which burns ETH out ... read More



SEC v. Ripple: Is XRP the loser in what seems like an unending brawl?

    The SEC vs Ripple case has taken a new turn now after the Amici Curiae brawl. The SEC’s latest move was to file for an omnibus motion to exclude or limit expert testimony. As per court documents, the Ripple team has accepted this motion under a condition. A 120-pager plea The regulatory watchdog SEC filed this motion on 6 July as reported by acclaimed lawyer James K. Filan in a thread. The SEC intends to file motions to exclude or limit the testimony of 10 experts who were retained by Ripple Labs. This may also include independent experts such as Christian A. Larsen and Bradley Garlinghouse. #XRPCommunity #SECGov v. #Ripple #XRP The SEC has sought permission to file one omnibus (big) motion to exclude or limit expert testimony, up to 120 pages long.

Filan 104k+ (beware of imposters) (@FilanLaw) July 6, 2022   Cited as an attempt to conserve “Judicial and SEC resources”, Ripple has accepted the motion on a condition. The condition allows them to have a similar page limit in their response to the motion. It has since been accepted by the SEC and has now been approved by Judge Torres. The proposed 120-page limit is lesser than the proposed 15-page limit per expert. The SEC believes this limit will be sufficient for the SEC to provide their facts and fur... read More

Can Xchange Monster (MXCH) Become Crypto Giants Like Binance Coin (BNB) ...

    PRESS RELEASE. The cryptocurrency industry has certainly become oversaturated with hundreds of crypto projects being established everyday with many of them failing before ever reaching any significant milestone. The mass success of the industry has led to many believing they can achieve that very same amount of success despite not putting in as much work or providing as many solutions for users in the crypto space. The likes of Binance Coin (BNB) and Cardano (ADA) has long been established as two of the most influential cryptocurrencies and have both reigned as top 10 cryptocurrencies, measured by market cap, according to data from CoinMarketCap, for a number of years. Offering different solutions in the crypto space, their dominance has inspired many new projects including Xchange Monster (MXCH) who aim to make a similar impact in its respective sector, which is the GameFi sphere. What does Xchange Monster (MXCH) have to do to reach the pinnacle of crypto? The most important aspect of becoming an influential cryptocurrency and one that has value is providing solutions to legitimate issues within the industry.

This project is primarily driven by the urge to provide a unique crypto gaming platform that provides numerous solutions to the gaming community and providers.

Is Bitcoin Like Buying Google Early? Check Out The Shocking Comparison

    Before the recent selloff, Bitcoin was positioned as the next big thing. Investing and trading legends like billionaire philanthropist Paul Tudor Jones say it is like investing in Steve Jobs' Apple early, or like getting in on the ground floor on Google. A new comparison suggests that even the latest price action is very much like if you had bought Google early. Here is a closer look at the shocking comparison along with the happy ending that should give crypto holders feeling uneasy some comfort. Bitcoin Versus Google Comparison Predicts Bull Finale Ahead Of Recession Bitcoin is a hard subject for many to wrap their head around. It has also been compared to investing in Apple or Google early.  However, a new comparison inspired by technical analyst Gert van Lagen shows just how accurate that statement might be. BTCUSD compared to Google during prior to The Great Recession | Source: BTCUSD on TradingView.com On the left, is the last decade plus of Bitcoin price action. On the right is Google just ahead of The Great Recession. With a recession possibly ahead of us, the comparison isn't without merit. The Happy Ending For Google: A Search Engine Giant Emerges The above comparison has been changed from the analyst's initial interpretation, but the comparison remains just as jarring. The example suggests that Bitcoin is nowhere near done with the current cycle. Many believe the recession is already here, which is why the recent crypto selloff has been so severe.

SBF: Big Players Like FTX Should Step in and Help Crypto Recover

    The Founder and CEO of the crypto exchange FTX - Sam Bankman-Fried - thinks large companies like his should use their expertise and 'stem contagion' in the digital asset market. As such, they could aid the ecosystem to thrive again, he added. In addition, the American argued that the Federal Reserve and its controversial approach to tackling high inflation is the main reason financial markets (including crypto) have plummeted recently. The Big Players Should Not Stand Aside One of the most influential people in the crypto space - Sam Bankman-Fried - opined that crises in the sector like the ongoing situation could be solved with the help of the leading companies. In fact, he believes they need to dive into the issue even if it leads to short-term losses: 'I do feel like we have a responsibility to seriously consider stepping in, even if it is at a loss to ourselves, to stem contagion. Even if we weren't the ones who caused it or weren't involved in it. I think that's what's healthy for the ecosystem, and I want to do what can help it grow and thrive.' Bankman-Fried reminded that FTX has already provided help on similar occasions. Last year, wrongdoers hacked the Japanese exchange Liquid and stole around $100 million worth of digital assets. Shortly after, FTX provided a $120 million in financing so the company could get back on its feet: 'We, I think about 24 hours later, stepped in and gave them a pretty broad line of credit to be able to cover all of their demands, to make ... read More



Will Bitcoin Fall to $13,800? — What an 80% Drawdown Will Look Lik...

    On Monday, June 15, 2022, the price of bitcoin tapped a low not seen since mid-December 2020 as the price hit $20,080 per unit. A large number of crypto supporters are debating whether or not the drop is the market's bottom or if the fall could lead to deeper losses. At the time of writing, bitcoin is 70% down from the $69K all-time high (ATH) but traditionally, bitcoin is known to drop around 80% or more from ATHs recorded in the past.Will Bitcoin Slide More Than 80% Down This Time Around? The crypto economy has had a rough couple of weeks as the leading crypto asset bitcoin (BTC) shed 35% over the last 14 days. Speculators have gone from guessing whether or not it might be a bear market to saying it definitely is a bear market. During the past few days, there's been a lot of capitulation and on Monday, hundreds of thousands of crypto traders were liquidated for close to $1.30 billion. Two days later, bitcoin dropped to a low of $20,080 per BTC and the last time BTC traded at this price was 17 months ago in mid-December 2020. At current USD values, bitcoin is down 70% from the $69K ATH it hit on November 10, 2021. During the bull runs in 2013 and 2017, bitcoin (BTC) dropped more than 80% lower than its previous price peaks. Coingecko.com's founder, Bobby Ong, tweeted about bitcoin's falls from the past bull runs and he included ethereum (ETH) in the 2017 runup.

Hackers Are Cloning Web3 Wallets Like Metamask and Coinbase Wallet to St...

    Confiant, an advertising security agency, has found a cluster of malicious activity involving distributed wallet apps, allowing hackers to steal private seeds and acquire the funds of users via backdoored imposter wallets. The apps are distributed via cloning of legitimate sites, giving the appearance that the user is downloading an original app. Malicious Cluster Targets Web3-Enabled Wallets Like Metamask Hackers are becoming more and more creative when engineering attacks to take advantage of cryptocurrency users. Confiant, a company that is dedicated to examining the quality of ads and the security threats these might pose to internet users, has warned about a new kind of attack affecting users of popular Web3 wallets like Metamask and Coinbase Wallet. The cluster, that was identified as 'Seaflower,' was qualified by Confiant as one of the most sophisticated attacks of its kind. The report states that common users cannot detect these apps, as they are virtually identical to the original apps, but have a different codebase that allows hackers to steal the seed phrases of the wallets, giving them access to the funds. Distribution and Recommendations The report found out that these apps are distributed mostly outside regular app stores, through links found by users in search engines such as Baidu. The investigators state that the cluster must be of Chinese origin due to the languages in which the code comments are written, and other elements lik... read More



More Regulation, Less Scams: What the Future of Blockchain Looks Like

    Blockchain technology has revolutionized government, finance, insurance, and personal identity security. By 2025, it’s predicted that corporations will be spending $20 billion annually on blockchain technical services. Tech giant IBM is investing more than $200 million in research and over 90% of European and US banks investigating blockchain options. Although only taking the world by storm over the past few years, blockchain technology is already on its way to becoming a legitimate disruptor in a slew of different industries. So what exactly does blockchain accomplish to make it so popular? Blockchain is a shared, immutable ledger that facilitates the process of recording transactions and tracking assets across a network. An asset can be tangible (e.g. a house, car, cash, or land) or intangible (e.g. intellectual property, patents, copyrights, or branding). Anything of value can be tracked and traded on a blockchain network, reducing risk and cutting costs for all involved. Blockchain technology is revolutionary because it allows businesses to receive information faster and more accurately. It provides immediate, shared, and transparent information stored on an immutable ledger which can only be accessed by permissioned network members. Blockchain’s ability to track orders, payments, accounts, and production, while giving members trust and transparency into their transactions is what is makes it so groundbreaking. One of the most appealing attributes of blockchai... read More



Bill Gates: Crypto Has No Valuable Output — It's Not Adding ...

    Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates has explained why he does not own any bitcoin or other cryptocurrencies. 'I like investing in things that have valuable output,' Gates said, adding that crypto is 'not adding to society like other investments.' Bill Gates on Crypto, and Why He Isn't Investing Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates shared his opinion about bitcoin and cryptocurrencies in a Reddit AMA (Ask Me Anything) session Thursday. One of the questions he was asked was 'What do you think about bitcoin and cryptocurrencies?' Gates replied: I don't own any. I like investing in things that have valuable output. He added: 'The value of companies is based on how they make great products. The value of crypto is just what some other person decides someone else will pay for it so not adding to society like other investments.' Gates' stance on cryptocurrency echoes that of Berkshire Hathaway Warren Buffett. The Oracle of Omaha explained in detail why he would not invest in bitcoin or cryptocurrency earlier this month. 'It doesn't produce anything,' Buffett described BTC, noting that he wouldn't pay $25 for all of the bitcoin in the world. 'What would I do with it? I'd have to sell it back to you one way or another. It isn't going to do anything,' he opined. The Microsoft co-founder and co-chair of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has long been a critic of bitcoin and cryptocurrency. In February last year, he said he didn't own bitcoin, adding that he has taken 'a neutral view.' Howev... read More



CZ Binance: I Would Like to See More Transparency From Terra's Tea...

    The CEO of the world's leading cryptocurrency exchange Binance, Changpeng Zhao (CZ), said that he expects more transparency from Luna's team following last week's UST-LUNA fiasco. Last week saw a top cryptocurrency literally go to zero in a matter of days. UST - Terra's algorithmic stablecoin - lost its peg and crashed to some $0.225. Because of how the protocol works, this created a massive arbitrage opportunity as users could burn 1 UST and receive $1 worth of LUNA. So long as UST was below its peg, traders were able to print LUNA and dump it on the open market in a loop that saw a whopping 6.5 trillion enter circulation in a couple of days. Naturally, this crashed the price of LUNA to literally $0 as most of the exchanges delisted the asset. One of these exchanges was Binance. Now, CZ took it to Twitter to clarify his position on the matter. 1/8 These past weeks have proven to be a watershed moment for the crypto industry. We have witnessed the rapid decline of a major project, which sent ripples across the industry, but also a new found resiliency in the market that did not exist during the last market downswing. — CZ Binance (@cz_binance) May 15, 2022 CZ said that Binance didn't participate in the second round of funding for Luna, and they didn't acquire any UST. Binance Labs - the company's investment arm - backed Terra with $3 million back in 2018 before UST was even a thing. He also clarified that 'the last few days, we tried hard to support the Terra comm... read More



Crypto Investors Dump Small Caps For Blue Chips Like Bitcoin

    The current trend in the crypto market has seen investors reassessing their positions in digital assets such as bitcoin. As the market had boomed and the infamous altcoin season had blossomed, a lot of investors had flocked to smaller cap altcoins for some large gains. However, with these digital assets now in a decline, investors have had to find ‘safer’ alternatives which have brought them right back into the arms of larger caps like bitcoin. Small Caps Take A Beating Like with any declining market, small caps have borne the brunt of the losses. They have underperformed the other indexes by a large margin. They are often the first point of contact for investors who are looking to make large gains in a short amount of time. However, their tendency to grow very quickly also make them susceptible to large drops in prices, which is what the market is seeing now. Small Caps Index record the most losses | Source: Arcane Research The performance of the small caps index has been nothing to write home about as it has returned -46% in the losses for investors. It is almost half of where they were trading at the start of the year, making it a consistently bad performer throughout the first quarter of 2022. Bitcoin To The Rescue Since small caps are no longer able to return the massive gains that have been pulling investors to them, the alternatives now remain the larger cap coins that have held up in the market. With only a 20% decline since the start of the year, it is o... read More



A New Super PAC Aims to Elect BTC Advocates and 'Vote out Anti-Bit...

    On Friday, Grant McCarty, the director of policy and public affairs at Bitcoin Magazine, announced the launch of three political efforts aimed at bolstering bitcoin public policy at the Bitcoin 22 conference in Miami. McCarty revealed the Bitcoin Advocacy Project (BAP), the Bitcoin Policy Institute (BPI) and an independent expenditure-only political committee called the Financial Freedom PAC.3 Newly Launched Political Efforts Aim to 'Bring About an Orange Wave Across Washington' A new bitcoin-themed Super PAC has been launched to help 'elect bitcoin champions.' According to the Financial Freedom PAC website introduced by Bitcoin Magazine's Grant McCarty, the new Super PAC supports 'candidates that aim to defend and uphold the following rights of bitcoin owners in the United States.' In recent times, bureaucrats have unveiled a number of regulatory policies toward digital currencies and many fear that strict crypto regulation can stifle technological innovation. Basically, a Super PAC is an independent political committee that solicits donations to bolster independent political activity and help frame public policy. While Super PACs cannot donate directly to political candidates, the PAC can spend unlimited sums of money to either fight against political candidates and legislation or advocate for specific bureaucrats. The Financial Freedom PAC explains that it supports four political candidates including the Ohio Republican Senate candidate, Josh Mandel, the California Democr... read More
