- Binance has almost hit an all-time high as it continues to reach every corner of the world by facilitating crypto trading in different jurisdictions.
- This comes as more countries warm up to crypto and ease their regulatory stance to this new technology.
One of the biggest crypto platforms in the space, Binance has almost hit an all-time high in new user registrations as it continues to reach every corner of the world by facilitating crypto trading in different jurisdictions. This comes as more countries warm up to crypto and ease their regulatory stance to this new technology.
The platform has seen quite an increase in its activity over the past week in the run-up to the halving event as well as after it with old inactive users even jumping back on the bandwagon and starting to trade again. The CEO and founder of the platform, CZ said during the Consensus: Distributed earlier this week:
“The new user registrations are picking up very aggressively, like getting close to the sort of generated under 2018…All of those indications are very clear, the activity level is definitely much higher than even three or four months ago.”
The American arm of the exchange, Binance.US is still adapting to the national regulations that are in process. CZ considers this is a slow process as he says, “It’s just a lengthy process in the U.S. to go through all of the regulatory compliance work. Hopefully we will get there and continue to enrich the product.”
Even with all the turmoil brought on due to the coronavirus impacting the world economies, 2020 seems to be a good year for the platform. As it grows in both adoption and volume, the exchange is looking to position itself as the number one crypto platform for the space.
It will be interesting to see how this situation plays out. For more news on this and other crypto updates, keep it with CryptoDaily!

They gave up Evan Turner’s expiring contract, the Brooklyn Nets’ lottery-protected 2020 first-round pick and a 2024 second-rounder from the Golden State Warriors. Capela, 25, is under contract through the 2022-23 season for only $51.3 million and is a great fit next to All-Star point guard Trae Young. The Atlanta Hawks kicked off the NBA trade deadline with a bang Tuesday evening. The team agreed to a four-team mega-deal that netted them 25-year-old center Clint Capela from the Houston Rockets. According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, the Hawks are sending Evan Turner’s $18.6 million expiring contract and the Brooklyn Nets’ 2020 lottery-protected first-round pick to the Minnesota Timberwolves. They’re also shipping the Golden State Warriors’ 2024 second-round pick to Houston. In addition, they’re taking back Nene’s $10 million expiring salary, which allowed the Rockets to duck under the luxury-tax threshold. The Rockets, Timberwolves and Nuggets all deserve an “incomplete” grade for the mega-deal at the moment. They may have more moves up their…Feb 6, 2020

Bitcoin (BTC/USD) was a little stronger early in today’s Asian session as the pair gained ground to the 7366.00 area, having traded as high as the 7531.00 area during yesterday’s North American session.

Cryptocurrency users are often targeted by criminals and scammers. Particularly emails can prove to be incredibly harmful in this regard. It appears a fair few phishing emails are making the rounds once again. Another Fake Binance Email Appears One of them claims to come from Binance, even though it is clearly not. Anyone who looks closely at the actual sender will notice this fairly quickly. In the email, fake Binance asks for “missing informations” that need to be provided. Failure to do so will allegedly lead to one’ account being disabled. To submit the information ,users need to click a button in the mail or visit the hyperlink at the bottom.

As such, an email like this can have major success in some cases. The best one can do…Jan 11, 2020
Data scientist Geoff Golberg has sued Twitter for banning his account after he used insulting language toward a bot. Golberg, the co-founder of blockchain analytics company Elementus and an academic at the University of Colorado, was banned from Twitter on July 29, 2019, for engaging in “abusive behavior.” In the lawsuit, Golberg emphasizes that the very existence of the inauthentic account violated Twitter’s terms of service. He states he was banned for using the words “idiot” and “moron” specifically. The case was prepared by crypto legal veterans Stephen Palley and Preston Byrne of Anderson Kill. The plaintiff is seeking damages of between $25,000 and $50,000 and the reactivation of his account — which commanded a following of more than 12,000. Claims of a contractual relationship with Twitter According to the suit, Golberg is suing Twitter for a breach of their contractual agreement. The researcher asserts that Twitter accounts are not free, arguing: “User data is the currency that all users provide to Twitter for access, and it becomes a valuable asset that Twitter then sells to platform advertisers.” Golberg also…Mar 5, 2020
Twitter Facebook reddit Pinterest Hacker News LinkedIn Tumblr Google+ VKontakte In the months leading up to the now infamous raid on Kim Dotcom’s New Zealand mansion and his cloud storage site Megaupload, the entrepreneur and his associates were under surveillance. Between December 2011 and March 2012, New Zealand authorities used the Government Communications Security Bureau (GCSB) spy agency to snoop on the private communications of Kim and former wife Mona Dotcom, plus Megaupload co-defendant Bram van der Kolk. Since the GCSB is forbidden from conducting surveillance on New Zealand citizens or permanent residents in the country, the spying carried out against Dotcom was illegal. The GCSB admitted liability and will at some point pay damages, but Dotcom also demanded access to the recordings. In 2017, however, the High Court rejected Dotcom’s access request, stating that the release of the intercepted communications would not take place. Citing security concerns, the Court said that the public interest in not disclosing the information outweighed the benefits of disclosure. This denial triggered a claim by Dotcom to the Court of Appeal. The result of…Nov 30, 2019
