  Research firm Hurun published a list of global unicorns, or companies worth more than a billion dollars, in 2020. This ranking features all billion-dollar tech startups founded in the 21st century that are not listed yet listed on public exchanges. The report, named “Hurun Global Unicorn Index 2020,” shows that there are a total of 586 unicorns globally — up from 494 companies listed in the 2019 ranking. The blockchain industry represents 2% of the list. Ripple takes the top spot as the company with the highest valuation in the sector. It ranks at #23, which is up from last year’s index, where it held the 28th position on the list. The most significant change was made by Binance, which rose thirty places on the list, ultimately ending up at #108. Bitmain as the biggest loser in terms of valuation Bitmain, plummeted significantly in terms of valuation. Last year the company posted a $12 billion valuation, but this has since fallen to $4 billion. According to Hurun, one reason behind Bitmain's drop is the “mediocre post-IPO performance of its rival, Canaan.” Crypto exchange Coinbase remains at a valuation of $8 billion, though it fell one place in Hurun’s ranking to #31. Ripple has the highest valuation in the blockchain sector with a $10 billion valuation. This represents a $5 billion rise in comparison with the company’s 2019 ranking. The Blockchain Research Institute, headed by China’s Center for Information and Industry Development, or CCID, released its 17th Global Public Chain Technology Evaluation Index on April 10. According to the latest index, EOS ranks as the best performing blockchain project, while the most widely used blockchain, Bitcoin, has slipped down three places and now ranks 14th on the list.

  Popular Twitter personality Dave Portnoy, famous for his motto “stocks only go up,” now wants to learn about Bitcoin (BTC) from Gemini co-founders Tyler and Cameron Winklevoss. In a Twitter clip extracted from his latest daily show on August 4, Portnoy tells the Winklevoss twins he’d like them to “explain Bitcoin in a way that I would understand,” he said. Portnoy stressed that he wants them to come in “their little rowing outfits,” in a reference to the movie The Social Network, where they were shown competing in Harvard’s rowing team. Both Tyler and Cameron accepted the invite shortly after. Bitcoin in the ether Portnoy recounted how he once bought BTC in “that original Bitcoin age” but lost all access to it. “I’ve spent 20 grand, it’s just sitting in the ether,” he lamented in what appeared to be an accidental pun. He said that he does not know how to buy Bitcoin or how to maintain self custody of the asset once acquired, which is why he wants the Winklevoss twins to come and explain it to him. He also revealed in passing that he had already talked to them about this, but “they wanted a free ad.” Portnoy on the other hand wants “to get rich” by learning about it. A viewer appears to have suggested he buys Chainlink (LINK) as well, though he immediately replied “I don’t know how, I’ve already explained.” An irreverent persona Portnoy is the founder of Barstool Sports, a sports news website. Since the coronavirus lockdowns, he has immersed himself in the world of daily stock trading, reportedly to make up for the closure of sports betting. He makes daily videos about his fortunes and misfortunes in the stock market, famously saying phrases like “stocks only go up” or “I have as much experience as Joe Dick Tom Warren Buffet.” He reportedly inspired his followers to enter the stock market through retail platforms like Robinhood, though he is known for using E*Trade. Portnoy and the Davey Day Trader persona are considered the poster child of...

  04.08.2020 Bitfinex предложила хакерам 30% за возврат похищенных в 2016 году 120 тысяч BTC Автор Victoria Grain Криптовалютная биржа Bitfinex предложила хакерам, взломавшим биржу в августе 2016 года и укравшим 120 000 BTC, 30% «отступных» от суммы возврата. Руководство биржи уточнило, что вознаграждение будет отправлено по текущему курсу BTC, если украденные биткоины будут полностью возвращены. В рамках этой инициативы биржа готова оставить хакерам часть, если они согласятся вернуть бирже украденное. Любой, кто свяжет Bitfinex с хакерами, получит 5% от суммы возврата, а хакеры – 25%. Биржа назвала эту долю сопутствующими расходами. Чтобы убедиться, что биржа взаимодействует действительно с теми хакерами, они должны отправить бирже 1 сатоши с кошелька, причастного ко взлому биржи, а Bitfinex со своей стороны обеспечит конфиденциальность всех транзакций. На сегодняшний день стоимость биткоинов, украденных с биржи 2 августа 2016 года, составляет около $1.344 млрд за вычетом уже возвращенных средств. В феврале прошлого года Bitfinex получила около 28 BTC от правоохранительных органов США. Вознаграждение хакерам и посреднику в размере 30% за возврат биткоинов составит около $400 миллионов. «Этот инцидент – темная страница в истории нашей площадки. Мы готовы предложить вознаграждение, и это наша последняя попытка вернуть украденные монеты», - указано в объявлении биржи. Впервые похищенные биткоины начали перемещаться почти спустя три года после взлома Bitfinex. По данным Whale Alert, в июне 2019 года преступники перевели со своего кошелька 172.54 BTC, а в прошлом месяце хакеры переместили еще 77.6 BTC. #Bitfinex #хакеры #биткоин #взлом #биржи криптовалют Источник Показать комментарии Обсудить на форуме Подписывайтесь на новости и их анализ в нашем Telegram канале!

  Sberbank, a state-owned company and the largest bank in Russia, is considering the possibility of issuing its own token, according to its key executives. Sergey Popov, Director of the transaction business at Sberbank, says that Russia’s banking giant is thinking of issuing its own stablecoin that could be pegged 1:1 to the Russian ruble, local news agency Kommersant reports on Aug. 4. Sberbank’s stablecoin would be compliant with recently passed crypto law According to the report, the potential stablecoin could be used for settlements involving other digital financial assets. Popov reportedly noted that Sberbank would be able to issue the token in accordance with the recently passed crypto law called “On Digital Financial Assets,” or DFA. The exec said: “We probably may issue a stablecoin on the basis of the law that has been adopted recently. As we can peg this stablecoin to the ruble, this token could become a basis or an instrument for settlements involving other digital financial assets.” Russia’s President Putin recently signs crypto bill into law The news comes soon after Russia’s President Vladimir Putin officially signed Russia’s DFA bill into law on July 31. By signing the bill, Putin prohibited Russian residents from making payments in cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin (BTC) starting from Jan. 1, 2021. First initiated in 2018, the DFA law reportedly legalizes crypto-to-crypto exchanges, buying and selling, as well as loans in crypto. Sberbank has apparently been waiting for the bill since 2018 Sberbank is known for its crypto-related initiatives. In May 2020, Cointelegraph reported that Sberbank was spending more than $100 million on 5,000 blockchain-enabled ATMs that are capable of mining crypto. In November 2019, Sberbank also pioneered a blockchain solution for repurchase agreements, also known as repo. In May 2019, Sberbank had to suspend a crypto initiative due to the negative stance on Blockchain assets held by the central bank.

  Dash has partnered with Mexican cryptocurrency exchange, Taurus.io, to release the first crypto Visa debit card in Latin America. The offer will initially only be available to Taurus’ customers in Mexico. The card will work at millions of stores in Mexico by converting crypto funds to pesos using the Tauros mobile app. It will also be capable of conducting online transactions. Speaking with Cointelegraph, Ernesto Contreras, Head of Business Development at Dash Core Group, provided more details about the new product, which is the first of its kind in the region: "The Tauros card is a first in Mexico and the region, and it will also allow for a very easy way in and out of the Tauros ecosystem, which is very important as it adds massive usability to Dash users in the country. The fact that we are giving the opportunity for people to earn DashBack rewards with their card will also give a boost to the crypto ecosystem in Mexico as now anyone can use their pesos, and Hodl Dash." COVID-19 drove the debit card’s launch forward He added that the recent need for contactless payments helped to accelerate the product offering. He emphasized the necessity of social distancing, noting that this will be the “new normal after this pandemic.” Salvador Melendez, CEO of Tauros Exchange, believes that the crypto ecosystem in Mexico is interested in a way to spend crypto directly. He stated that “this new world is about freedom.” The Dash Core Group recently announced plans to release another update near the end of August.

  During an Aug. 4 panel on legal compliance within the cryptocurrency industry, major figures noted recent shifts in public perception of the industry, pointing to arrests within weeks of the Twitter hack as an example of how effective blockchain analytics can be for solving crime. The panel is part of an ongoing series from the Association of Certified Financial Crime Specialists. Twitter and law enforcement Lana Schwartzmann, chief compliance officer for Paxful, said regarding the Twitter hack “It’s quite amazing how different this is from what we’d see in the traditional fiat world. You’d never have this resolved so quickly.” Also speaking about Twitter, Coinbase’s chief compliance officer Jeff Horowitz agreed that it was part of a shifting narrative around crypto: “The story quickly changed to ‘how is crypto partnering with law enforcement to track this issue?’” Overall rise in institutional comfort and interest Horowitz continued to describe major improvements to conversations about regulation and crypto over the course of “maybe the past one to two years.” Jonathan Levin, a co-founder of Chainalysis, a firm that helped track the Bitcoin in the Twitter hack to 17-year-old Graham Clark, compared the estimate of $10 million laundered in Bitcoin each day to the total amount moving on the blockchain: “There’s more than a billion dollars moved on the bitcoin blockchain per week, so this is still a very small amount of value compared to what is being moved on the blockchain.” Institutions, said Levin, are very engaged in weighing how to onboard crypto, but noted that “This is not a when or an if, this is a how.” An audience poll during the panel found lack of regulatory guidance to be the primary barrier to financial institutions working with crypto. Source: ACFCS FinCrime Virtual Week Levin also spoke at length about North Korea’s famous Lazarus Group as an example of law enforcement getting better acquainted with crypto technologies. Just in...

  Chainlink (LINK) introduced a new community grant program focused on making smart contracts “the dominant form of digital agreement”. Chainlink’s positive feedback loops. Source: Chainlink. Dominating digital agreements The grants will be awarded to projects that are “accelerating two positive feedback loops.” Such loops include the increased availability of on-chain data and increased security guarantees for users. The eventual goal is to make smart contracts a dominant form of digital agreements. Chainlink co-founder Sergey Nazarov elaborated on these points in a statement to Cointelegraph: “We are accelerating the adoption of smart contracts as the dominant form of digital agreement, by enabling them to be used for the many mainstream use cases defined by DeFi, decentralized Insurance and fraud-proof gaming. The goal of the Chainlink Community Grant Program is to accelerate all the key dynamics relating to data, security and accessibility around Chainlink”. Grant allocation is not disclosed The categories that Chainlink has identified as key for the potential applications all revolve around the aforementioned themes of more data, more connectivity, and greater security. The grants will be paid out in cash and/or LINK tokens. However, Chainlink has not disclosed the total amount allocated for the grant program, nor individual payout amounts. Nazarov said they are actively reviewing applications and welcome new ones: “We are actively reviewing applications and do welcome both high quality development teams and talented technical individuals to contribute to this acceleration of smart contract through a grant.” While Chainlink’s native LINK token has recently set new all-time highs, its success seems to be attracting more competition. One example is the Decentralised Information Asset (DIA), which seeks to use crowd-sourced data to improve accuracy.

  COVID-19 is the most devastating plague to ravage humankind this century. Every day, the number of patients infected with the coronavirus is rising globally and taking the highest human toll in the United States. The highly infectious virus was first contracted in November 2019 in Wuhan, the capital city of China’s Hubei province, through horseshoe bat-to-human contact at the Huanan seafood market. Many of the initial COVID-19 patients were either stall owners, market employees or regular visitors of the market, who rapidly developed a severe respiratory illness. Despite the market being shut down on Jan. 1, 2020, the virus has since rapidly spread airborne during exhalation, talking and coughing via microdroplets small enough to remain aloft in air, spreading to over 200 countries and regions around the world. Seafood is a major source of nourishment, providing sustenance to billions of people as well as fish and animals worldwide. It is considered to be one of the world’s largest industries, generating a value of about $152 billion in 2017, with more than half of this trade originating in developing regions. At present, China accounts for nearly 75% of the global seafood and aquaculture market in terms of both volume and value, while the second-largest market share is held by India, followed by Indonesia, Chile, Norway, Japan, South Korea, the U.S. and the United Kingdom. Seafood industry-related malpractices At the same time, the seafood industry is plagued by malpractices, including fraud, product mislabeling, tax evasion, price fixing and poor management of fisheries: Overfishing — in 2018, almost 90% of global wild fish stocks were either exploited or overfished, and this number is estimated to grow. Bycatches — approximately 60% of the seafood taken from the ocean is discarded, lost or wasted in supply chains. Illegal, unreported and unregulated fishing — representing up to 26 million tons of fish caught, valued from $10 billion to $23 billion...

  Without a doubt, one of the best-performing cryptocurrencies in the past few years is Chainlink (LINK). In recent days, the cryptocurrency surged from $6.80 to $9.30 capping a 40% percent move and becoming the number nine cryptocurrency by market capitalization. Can Chainlink continue moving upward and even reach the magical number of $10 or higher? Crypto market daily performance. Source: Coin360 Chainlink rallies with 41% since the crash last weekend As most of the cryptocurrencies saw a massive crash at the weekend, Chainlink did the same. The price of Chainlink dropped from $8.75 to $6.90, all the way toward the support level of the range it was in. LINK/USDT 1-day chart. Source: TradingView Since that drop, the price of Chainlink immediately bounced back heavily and tested the resistance at $8.75 again. Only this time the resistance broke down and the price rallied toward $9.60, a new all-time high. What are the crucial levels to watch for Chainlink? These are defined using the following chart, in which the crucial support and next target zones are shown. LINK/USDT 4-hour chart. Source: TradingView The crucial support level is defined by the previous resistance zone at $8.75. The market and traders want to see a support/resistance flip of this level, confirming that new buyers are stepping in. Such a support/resistance flip would warrant further upward momentum. The next resistance and target zone is $10.40, using the Fibonacci extension tool. If the 2.618 Fibonacci level is taken, the next resistance zone is found at the $12.50 level. When assets or cryptocurrencies are in price discovery (without any historic price data at given price levels), the Fibonacci extension tool is a great asset to identify new target zones. However, once the support/resistance flip fails, this upward breakout above $8.75 can be classified as a fakeout. In this scenario, Chainlink goes back in the range between $7 and $9. After such a fakeout, a test of...

  Российский бизнес полагает, что закон о ЦФА позволит легализовать проекты рынка цифровых активов, однако не сыграет на привлечении зарубежных инвестиций Принятый закон «О цифровых финансовых активах» не сыграет особую роль на малом и среднем бизнесе, сообщает «Финмаркет» со ссылкой на опрос экспертов «Интерфаксом». По мнению большинства опрошенных экспертов, принятый закон хоть и сигнализирует о формализации регулирования индустрии, однако требует бóльших уточнений. Присоединяйтесь к нашему телеграм-каналу, чтобы быть в курсе главных трендов крипторынка. Интернет-омбудсмен Дмитрий Мариничев отмечает, что закон сфокусирован лишь на узком кругу больших компаний, которым под силу выпустить собственный стейблкоины. Для малого и среднего бизнеса, по мнению Мариничева, закон не принес никаких нововведений. «Закон просто констатирует то, что давно существует и так. Никакого технологического прорыва он не обеспечит, но то, что возникает хоть какая-то регуляторика — это уже плюс», — заявил он. Мариничев известен на российском крипторынке достаточно давно. В 2017 году омбудсмен публично организовал два пула по майнингу биткоина и эфира, добыв свыше $7 млн. Довольствуясь малым Мнение омбудсмена разделяет главред Indicator.Ru, кандидат физико-математических наук Николай Подорванюк. Подорванюк заявил, что несмотря на то, что закон пока что не идеален, это «первый шаг в нужном направлении». «Прозрачность и верификация информация — это именно то, что востребовано, особенно в свете коронавируса и тотальной дистанционной работы», — заявил Подорванюк. Президент Российской ассоциации криптоиндустрии и блокчейна (РАКИБ) Юрий Припачкин считает иначе. По его мнению, утверждение закона в существующем виде — это «безусловно позитивный момент», учитывая жесткую ответственность за нарушения, которые рассматривались в этом году, но не были приняты. Желаемое за действительное Напомним, в конце мая 2020 года авторы законопроекта представили его третью редакцию, в...

  Известный в криптовалютной индустрии проект Chainlink обвиняют в махинациях, однако, похоже, что критики таким образом хотят осуществить дамп актива Фирма по управлению активами Zeus Capital LLP обвинила криптовалютный проект Chainlink (LINK) в многоуровневых рыночных манипуляциях. Об этом фирма написала у себя на странице в Twitter. «Памп был единственной целью? У Сергея [основателя Chainlink] заканчиваются деньги, чтобы продолжать покупать устойчивость карточного домика — на горизонте [формируются] двойные вершины. Рынок может продержаться, но не забудет [памп]», — заявили в Zeus Capital. Чуть позже фирма опубликовала пост, ссылаясь на неназванного инсайдера из Callisto Network, который якобы отвечал за оценку инвестиционных рисков сотрудничества с Chainlink. Присоединяйтесь к нашему телеграм-каналу, чтобы быть в курсе главных трендов крипторынка. Как утверждает анонимный инсайдер, цель сотрудничества между Chainlink и Callisto Network заключалась в кросс-маркетинге — совместных промо кампаний. Никакой технической интеграции, о которой сообщалось на официальном сайте Callisto Network, не было. Дым без огня Впрочем, инициатором партнерства, по утверждению инсайдера, выступили именно в Callisto Network после того, как увидели анонс Chainlink о предстоящих партнерствах. Согласовав договоренности, обе стороны оформили пресс-релиз «всего за пару дней». «…никаких других контактов, никаких ответов… просто опубликованный лист бумаги. Мы не пользовались их услугами, поскольку они никогда не связывались с нами снова и не отвечали», — заявил инсайдер. В конце июля Zeus Capital обвинила Chainlink в мошеннических схемах. Тогда фирма объявила серию статей о мошенничестве со стороны Chainlink, которое руководство проекта осуществляет с помощью бессмысленных партнерств с Google, Oracle, T-Systems и многими другими. За пару недель до появления серии обвинений со стороны Zeus Capital, в сети появились сообщения о том, что фирма является подставным...

  04.08.2020 Дело Александра Винника передано в исправительный суд Франции Автор Victoria Grain Французский судья 21 июля принял решение о передаче дела предполагаемого оператора биржи BTC-e Александра Винника в исправительный суд. Дата первого заседания намечена на 14 сентября. Об этом сообщил французский адвокат Винника Фредерик Бело. Он добавил, что еще неясно, будет ли проводиться заседание по сути дела, или это будет предварительное заседание суда, в ходе которого стороны лишь изложат свои аргументы. Защита ждет подтверждения этой информации. Первая часть заседания будет длиться несколько дней. Бело добавил, что Винник обвиняется по 14 пунктам: в вымогательстве, участии в преступной группировке, отмывании денег, незаконном доступе к системам обработки данных, в том числе к персональным данным, и целому ряду других обвинений. По словам французского адвоката, Винник считает себя жертвой сложившихся обстоятельств, так как называет себя лишь простым исполнителем. У него не было намерения совершать преступление в отношении людей, пострадавших от вредоносной программы Locky, которая зашифровывала документы без их ведома и требовала выкуп в криптовалюте для декодирования и восстановления данных. Винник утверждает, что его наняли через интернет-форумы в качестве рядового исполнителя. «Винник просто выполнял порученные ему задания и даже не подозревал, что его действия были незаконными. Работодатели Винника заверяли, что его действия прошли необходимую проверку банков и платформ, соответствуют всем требованиям закона, поэтому являются абсолютно легальными. Подзащитный не взаимодействовал с другими операторами и получал только ту информацию, которую ему предоставляли работодатели. Он ничего не получил из денег, добытых в ходе махинаций, а получал лишь оплату за свой труд, будучи обманутым», - сказал французский адвокат Винника Фредерик Бело. По словам Бело, Винника выставляют как одного из учредителей уже несуществующей криптовалютной биржи BTC-e, хотя...

  A famous Bitcoin skeptic has called for a gold-backed currency to save Turkey as its national fiat currency collapses. In a tweet on Monday, John Hopkins professor Steve Hanke argued that hard money was now the only way out for Turkey, which has spent billions of dollars propping up the lira. Hanke: Turkey’s lira is “toast” At press time, those efforts were still in vain, as another day of intense selling sent the lira to a record low against various currencies including the euro and Bitcoin (BTC). Weakness in the United States dollar meant that the lira–dollar pair avoided a record of its own, nonetheless dropping to its lowest levels since May. “#Turkey’s #Lira is toast,” Hanke declared. “The central bank’s net foreign assets are a staggering negative $32 billion. Turkey has run out of ammunition in its futile defense of the hopeless lira. Only a gold-backed currency board can save the lira.” BTC/TRY lifetime chart. Source: TradingView Turkey’s situation is reminiscent of that which engulfed Russia in 2014 as the Ukraine crisis sparked a rout that saw the central bank continually selling foreign exchange reserves to steady the ruble. “They’re intervening quite heavily. And the question is how long they can do that,” a strategist at Dutch bank Rabobank told the Financial Times last week. Ankara has taken a laissez-faire approach to Bitcoin regulation, with a lack of formal recognition ironically contrasting with moves such as banning PayPal in 2016. Gold and Bitcoin bugs unite against interventionism Hanke is well known for preferring other safe-haven assets to BTC, which he described in June as “not a currency.” He joins the likes of Peter Schiff in his support for gold, which itself is at $1,975 — an all-time high in U.S. dollar terms. Interventionist strategies on the part of governments and central banks when it comes to currency forms a major argument in favor of Bitcoin as an alternative. As Saifedean Ammous notes in his now...

  Ошеломительное ралли DeFi-токена yEARN finance (YFI) подало участникам крипторынка дурной пример и породило множество клонов, пытающихся подражать его успеху. В середине июля проект yEarn Finance представил на рынке DeFi новый токен YFI. В считанные дни курс YFI взлетел с $35 в район $4500. Успех токена немедленно породил массу подражателей, таких как YFFI, YFII и Asuka. Однако все они в итоге потеряли 100% стоимости и породили на рынке опасения относительно возможного экзит-скама. Слова поддержки В последние месяцы сектор децентрализованных финансов (DeFi) стал новой горячей точкой в криптопространстве, потеснив недавнюю ICO-лихорадку. Редакция BeInCrypto уже давно отслеживает ситуацию в этой индустрии и головокружительный рост его капитализации, который происходит по экспоненте. Многие эксперты предупреждают о возможном пузыре DeFi, который вот-вот лопнет. Слабо представляете себе, что такое «сегмент DeFi», о буме которого все говорят? Присоединяйтесь к дискуссии в нашем Телеграм-канале – и вы все узнаете! Недавно в центре внимания оказался токен YFI, выпущенный платформой yEarn Finance. Проект был создан в рамках крайне популярной сейчас инвестиционной стратегии «доходного фермерства», предлагающей прибыль за предоставление кредитов или ликвидности. Средства конвертируются в локальные токены и затем используются в различных финансовых сервисах. Команда проекта откровенно предупреждала, что ее токен обладает нулевой финансовой ценностью и нужен исключительно для управления платформой. Тем не менее, это не помешало курсу YFI вырасти всего за неделю почти на 13 000%. Демократичность DeFi-платформ позволяет осуществлять свопы токенов в стиле «Дикого Запада». Чтобы клонировать токен YFI, разработчикам всего лишь нужно было копировать код или осуществить форк исходника. Соответственно, подражатели, воодушевленные успехом YFI, массово ринулись плодить его клоны. Любопытно, что основатель оригинального YFI Андре Кронье одобрительно отозвался о таких...

  Andrey Shevchenko 2 minutes ago Ethereum Medalla Testnet Launch Suffers Block Finality Issue The Ethereum Medalla Testnet launched, but it is not yet achieving the participation it needs. 17 Total views Listen to article 0:00 News The Ethereum Medalla testnet launch, scheduled for 1pm UTC, did not proceed as smoothly as expected. While the network launched successfully and proposed a sufficient number of blocks at the supposed genesis time, participation rate was a mere 57%; much lower than the expected 80%. This means that only 57% of the stake is being deployed to validate the network. This presents a significant issue as block finality cannot be achieved until the network begins slashing the validators who are offline. Finality means that the block history is set in stone, which is equivalent to the block confirmation threshold on Eth 1.0. According to the developers, this may be due to many validators who signed up by depositing 32 ETH not running the validator software. However, issues with Nimbus and Lodestar clients may account for about 10% of that participation gap, Ethereum Foundation’s Danny Ryan said. The network is expected to solve the issue on its own as inactive validators are thrown out, but that may take at least a few hours to restore finality. In the meantime, the developers are investigating the issues with the clients. The story is developing #Ethereum #Technology

  The United States dollar (USD) index is currently testing the bottom of a 12-year trendline. But as some traders are calling it the “most pivotal moment” for the global reserve currency since 2008, they believe that continuous depreciation will likely boost the price of Bitcoin (BTC). Since April, for over three months, the USD has declined against other reserve currencies. Some investors believe that the fall in the value of USD affected the price of Bitcoin. Prominent cryptocurrency trader Scott Melker said: “This is arguably the most pivotal moment we have seen for the United States Dollar since it bottomed in 2008. This channel has been intact for over 10 years. If it breaks down, hide yo' kids and buy a metric ton of Bitcoin.” The U.S. dollar tests the lower end of a 12-year trendline. Source: Scott Melker Why the U.S. dollar could have an impact on Bitcoin In recent weeks, as BTC rose to as high as $12,000, investors pointed at the declining USD. Jay Hao, the CEO of OKEx, said a depreciating dollar raises the chances of a BTC rally. The value of the USD affects Bitcoin because traders typically price BTC against USD. When the dollar depreciates, the asset that BTC is trading against is lower in value. Hence, when the USD drops, it might increase the likelihood of BTC upside. Hao said: “If the dollar continues to depreciate, there is a high probability that Bitcoin will continue to rise.” Mark Wilcox, a Bitcoin analyst, raised a similar point. He pinpointed the biggest monthly drop of the USD as the driving factor of BTC in the past several months. Wilcox explained that rather than Bitcoin increasing in value, it is the dollar that actually declined in price. He said, “bitcoin didn't go up, the dollar went down,” referring to the U.S. dollar index. The US dollar index since 2010.

  The largest cryptocurrency, Bitcoin (BTC), is not going away once the ongoing financial crisis subsides, United States Representative Tom Emmer (R-MN) believes. A known industry advocate, Emmer says that Bitcoin will only be getting stronger after the world eventually emerges from the economic chaos caused by the coronavirus. Bitcoin and blockchain will continue to become more important “As we come out of the crisis, Bitcoin ain’t going away, it’s gonna get stronger,” the Congressman saod during an Aug. 3 interview with co-founder of Morgan Creek Digital Anthony Pompliano. According to Emmer, both Bitcoin and its underlying technology of blockchain will “continue to become more and more important” and see further advancements due to its unprecedented value. “You just watch, it has value, when something has value, people are going to take risks and it’s going to advance,” the politician said. U.S. banks are now officially authorized to custody Bitcoin According to Emmer, Bitcoin’s future is now even more promising after U.S. regulators authorized banks to provide custody for cryptocurrencies last week. As reported, the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency officially approved federally chartered banks to store crypto like Bitcoin on July 22. According to Emmer, Brian Brooks, Acting Comptroller of the Currency at the OCC, made a significant contribution to the future of Bitcoin: “And now Brian Brooks is saying ‘Hey, institutions, you can start banking this stuff. You can provide a home for it, you can start working with it.'” Representative Emmer is known for advocating cryptocurrency-powered innovation. Earlier this year, he expressed concerns about regulation smothering innovation. Previously, the Congressman has called on the government to provide more regulatory clarity for the crypto industry. Emmer is not alone in thinking that Bitcoin will become even more solid once markets start to recover. In March 2020, billionaire investor and...

  The boom of the initial coin offerings defined the blockchain industry in 2017 and the first half of 2018 as capital flowed to finance many new projects and the associated services. Ahead of Ethereum’s five year anniversary, Cointelegraph interviewed Kosala Hemachandra, the founder of MyEtherWallet. As he revealed, the surge in activity in 2017 turned the one-man operation — started 10 days after Ethereum’s launch — into a serious software company. MyEtherWallet was at the time among the most popular and user-friendly wallets, and it had complete support for ERC-20 tokens — vital for engaging with ICOs. The most well-known alternative was the Mist wallet released by the Ethereum Foundation, which was a full node wallet that required a lengthy synchronization procedure to be used. MyEtherWallet’s transition to a “trusted brand” began in tandem with ICOs, Hemachandra said. “It was definitely 2017. I can't think of any specific point in time, but the ICO craze was the starting point for the change.” Lessons from the ICO era The ICO trend began around January 2017, peaking around the end of the year and ending almost as quickly as it began in December 2018: “I definitely saw that [drop]. I did not see it in the beginning but at the same time, I knew that government organizations will definitely get involved.” Regulator interest into initial coin offerings was signaled with the so-called “DAO report” in July 2017, which analyzed a 2016 crowdfunding initiative in the form of the Ethereum DAO. The United States Securities and Exchange Commission stressed that the DAO tokens were a security offering, suggesting that similar attempts will be prosecuted: “As soon as the SEC started to get involved, that's when I knew that these ICOs might not survive, [or] they might not continue to survive.” But according to him, that scrutiny was invaluable for later projects. “I think everything that happened back then was a good lesson for all of us because those...

  When CryptoKitties burst onto the scene back in November 2017, we had our first taste of load-testing a blockchain solution at scale. Congestion spiked, and we saw glimpses of how far away we were from mass adoption being a realistic achievement. After setting about increasing “birthing fees,” in search of a better solution, the game continued to prove popular with both collectors and breeders and ignited the imaginations of countless developers and gaming communities. Stage one: Copy and paste By taking a nonfungible token and attaching it to a regular video game, we introduce a basic economy that differs from the existing model of in-game “soft gold.” The NFT is a record of ownership, is transferable, and, in some instances, can be swapped for other fungible cryptocurrencies and fiat currencies. NFTs also guarantee an item’s uniqueness and signify it is one of a kind, different to all the others in circulation. Therefore, if you are selling thousands of the same item in a game that has the same purpose, you can also substitute the NFT with a fungible payment method. It’s no wonder we have seen many older style games make an appearance on blockchains after failing to monetize the game on traditional platforms. After all, who wants to spend hundreds of hours playing a game to win something that is worthless? By giving items a “badge” of uniqueness, they suddenly become worth something, especially if someone else will pay for them. So, the first stage is to take a game that already exists, make the in-game items nonfungible, do little-to-no blockchain integration, launch it on a chain with a massive audience and network effect, and call it a blockchain game. Many games and developers have settled for this outcome once they realized the limitations with scaling, price, security and complexity. Stage two: Meet me halfway The second stage is where games with real potential, traction or an existing user base realize that they simply can’t scale on some...
