The global stock markets have seen massive crashes over the past 24 hours and this includes cryptocurrency. The coronavirus seems to be the catalyst for such a crash and as the outbreak gets worse, so do stocks. Publicly listed crypto companies are experiencing serious losses over the past 24 hours which will more than likely have been hell on Earth for many owners of these firms.
However, there seems to be some light in the dark. Even though the markets have seen significant crashes over the past day, the CEO of the BitMEX platform has both good and bad news. Arthur Hayes has said that the leading cryptocurrency could suffer further losses from the markets plunge taking place everywhere.
In a recently published segment from BitMEX Crypto Trader Digest, Hayes said that the flagship cryptocurrency could hit levels of around $6000.
He has further said:
“Bitcoin will not escape. While I don’t believe we will revisit $3,000, max pain probably resides somewhere between $6,000 to $7,000”.
Currently trading above the $5000 mark it’s hard to take Hayes words seriously. 25% of the leading cryptocurrencies value has been lost over the past 24 hours. The trajectory for bitcoin is leaving many investors and traders cautious about the future and the next few days.
The CEO did mention that panic dumping is going to increase significantly due to the crash in the crypto markets. He said that hedge funds will start to receive a lot of distress calls from many scared customers with the panic and the dumping driving prices even lower than they currently stand.
It will be interesting to see how this plays out. For more news on this and other crypto updates, keep it with CryptoDaily!

2019 was only really positive for a handful of digital assets, namely bitcoin. While it ended up 85%, it was the worst positive year on record which could be a sign that things are slowing. Bitcoin Under Performs in 2019 It may sound strange that an asset that made 85% in a year under-performed but that is exactly what happened to bitcoin in 2019. At the beginning of January last year, BTC was priced near its market bottom at around $3,750. By year end, it was holding just over $7,000, marking an increase of around 85%. As impressive as this sounds, it has been the worst positive performing year in bitcoin history. Crypto analyst ‘Rptr45’ has tabulated the historical prices of BTC revealing that 2019’s performance was only slightly worse than 2015’s. $BTC finished the year +85.4% which is actually the “worst” positive year on record (slightly edging out 2015’s +88.1%). 0/ $BTC finished the year +85.4% which is actually the “worst” positive year on record (slightly edging out 2015’s +88.1%).

A major global company that helps fight illicit cryptocurrency-related activity does not think that privacy in crypto markets is necessarily bad. Despite representing one of the primary sources of crypto transaction data for federal agencies like the Internal Revenue Service and the FBI, Chainalysis does not exactly oppose the privacy and decentralization of crypto. “Complete transparency is not necessarily an ideal place” Jonathan Levin, co-founder and CSO at blockchain and crypto analytics firm Chainalysis, reiterated his stance to privacy in crypto, claiming that full transparency of cryptocurrency transactions might not turn out to be the best situation. Speaking in an interview with Cointelegraph, Levin noted that there is still a need to support the ability of regulators and businesses to monitor illicit activity related to crypto, stating: “There will be the invention of privacy-enhancing technology. Complete transparency is not necessarily an ideal place to be either, but ultimately there needs to be the ability for regulators and businesses with the appropriate levels of legal authority and oversight to tackle the illicit activity that abuses the systems.” Speaking to Cointelegraph in…Feb 13, 2020
As Zhao told Cointelegraph on May 4, the April 29 attack was “well-coordinated” and focused on making Binance services unavailable in some countries of Asia. Competitors behind the attacks? Zhao emphasized that there are “a number of tell-tale” signs that such attacks came from competing exchanges. In the statement, Binance’s CEO stated that DDoS attacks were more expensive for hackers than for the exchange itself. CZ provided more details regarding specific DDoS targets: “The attacks focused on all of our public endpoints in those targeted regions simultaneously. We use a wide range of caching, clustering, and distribution services to optimize the performance of user access from every corner of the world. And for each region, we use different combinations of services and architecture.” Allegedly “black media” campaign against Binance On the other hand, Zhao claimed that there are some well-coordinated “black media” efforts against Binance, citing the Chinese industry as an example. There, he claims that there is a “whole industry of black media” that is responsible for writing negative articles “until you pay them.” Binance’s CEO claims that these…May 5, 2020

In August 2017, Blockstream made an unprecedented and invaluable contribution to Bitcoin by starting a free satellite service that streams the Bitcoin blockchain from space, with coverage including Africa, Europe, South America and North America. A little over a year later, the Canadian company extended the scope of its one-way Bitcoin blockchain broadcasting by including the Asia-Pacific region. Contrary to popular misconception, Blockstream did not launch its own satellites to enable transaction broadcasting in space and thereby extend Bitcoin’s censorship resistance. Rather, as confirmed by Blockstream engineer Grubles, the company leases existing satellite bandwidth from third parties for the Blockstream Satellite network. “We use leased bandwidth on commercial geosynchronous satellites to provide the Blockstream Satellite service,” he told Bitcoin Magazine. Grubles, best known for practical experimentation with mesh antennae and offline Bitcoin transactions, also clarified that the current number of satellites in this network amounts to four. The Blockstream Satellites, Censorship Resistance and Privacy As the native currency of the internet, bitcoin requires a stable network connection in order to synchronize a full node with the latest activity on the…Feb 4, 2020
