For months and months, Ethereum (ETH) has been in the trenches of a bear trend. Even in 2019, when global markets saw near-record gains and Bitcoin gained 90% in 12 months, the second-largest cryptocurrency by market capitalization posted a loss, managing to underperform effectively everything. Related Reading: This Late Night Host Just Exposed Millions to Bitcoin, Again And since peaking near $1,400 at the start of the bear market in 2018, the cryptocurrency has fallen by literally 90%, crumbling under the pressure of a market recentralizing in BTC. But, according to a prominent cryptocurrency trader, the macro downtrend may soon end, if Ethereum can break this one key level that is. Ethereum Needs to Break $200 Prominent cryptocurrency trader Dave the Wave recently noted that while Bitcoin’s strong pump has pushed Ethereum and its ilk higher today, ETH remains a far way from a macro downtrend line that has constricted upward price action for over a year now. He noted that for ETH to break this downtrend, it will need to push around 35% higher from current levels and surmount $202,…Jan 14, 2020
Expectations were low for Daniel Jones when he took over the role of starting quarterback for the New York Giants in week three. All he had to do was play better than how Eli Manning had been playing—and he has. After two starts, he is 2-0, the Giants are 2-2, and they are only one game back in the NFC East. Does this mean it is safe to go ahead and get excited about the Giants? Some would say yes; many more would say no. But depending on how Sunday’s game vs. the Minnesota Vikings plays out, that could change. The Line According to DraftKings, the Vikings (-215) are favored by five points over the Giants (+185). Oddsmakers see the game as a low scoring one, too, with the over/under set at 43.5 total points. Can Daniel Jones Remain Undefeated? Jones will face easily his toughest test to date in the Vikings defense. Minnesota ranks sixth in the league in total yards allowed (312.8 per game), are ninth against the pass (218.5 yards/game) and are tough against the run as…Oct 6, 2019
Kenneth Blanco has said that the FinCEN sees all stablecoins as falling under their remit in order to protect “money transmission services”. Blanco spoke at the Chainalysis Links conference in New York City at the end of last week where he stated FinCEN upholds its “technology-neutral” outlook. The director insisted stablecoin administrators must sign up as a Money Services Business. Director Kenneth Blanco has said that the United States Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) sees all stablecoins, including Tether, as falling under their remit in order to protect “money transmission services”, he said. Blanco spoke at the Chainalysis Links conference in New York City at the end of last week where he stated FinCEN upholds its “technology-neutral” outlook whilst simultaneously including stablecoins under that definition. “It does not matter if the stablecoin is backed by a currency, a commodity, or even an algorithm, the rules are the same,” Blanco said. The clarification by the American money laundering regulator came as the director insisted stablecoin administrators must sign up as a Money Services Business (MSB) with the Financial Crimes Network….Nov 20, 2019
Twitter Facebook reddit Pinterest Hacker News LinkedIn Tumblr Google+ VKontakte Over $10 million USD, approximately 1,154 Bitcoin (BTC), has been transferred from Binance crypto exchange to Singapore based Huobi exchange. While a number of conclusions can be reached on the move announced by Whale Alert on Wednesday, January 15, 2020, one remains quite significant; which altcoins are traded on Huobi and not Binance. In the top 10 coins list by market capitalization? Bitcoin SV (BSV). Could this yet be another pump on the fourth largest coin after a 100% spike in the past 24 hours? Whale moves $10 million (1,154 BTC) from Binance to Huobi At 9.22 AM GMT+3, a whale-sized transaction of 1,154 BTC (~$10, 007, 875 USD) was recorded and broadcasted on Whale Alert, a crypto volumes oracle. While such large transactions are a common sign of a dump on the market i.e. unknown wallets sending BTC to exchanges to sell them off in the time of a bull run, this specific transaction may raise questions on a possible continuation of the current alt-season. 1,154 #BTC (10,007,875 USD)…Jan 16, 2020
December 1, 2017: “Bitcoin breaks $10k” rolls through your newsfeed. You mined bitcoin back in 2010–2011 but forgot about it, opting to focus on your career. As you read the news article, you finally comprehend the surreal notion that you are now a multimillionaire. It sounds like a fantasy but it has happened (maybe even to a few of you reading this). And what do you do with this spontaneous fortune? You could buy nearly anything you want. Or, if you’re Pine, the pseudonymous philanthropist behind the Pineapple Fund, you would give it away. Pine donated 5,057 bitcoin to over 60 causes and charities — or roughly $55 to $85 million during the donation period of December 2017 (a time when the price of bitcoin began its surge to $20,000, doubling its $10,000 price milestone in two weeks). This stupendous act of solitary charity has become emblematic of one of the more salient side effects of bitcoin’s dramatic rise in value over the years: Some early adopters are left with shitloads of money, and they have no idea what to…Feb 26, 2020

Investment platform CurioInvest and Seychelles-based digital asset exchange MERJ Exchange Ltd. will jointly begin offering a token backed by collector luxury cars. The so-called Car Token (CT1) token is set to be pegged to the value of collectible cars giving more people a chance to have a fraction of an asset, BNN Bloomberg reported on Jan. 30. Historically safe havens? The company stipulated that the attractiveness of the token also lies in the fact that the value of such goods continues to appreciate. “When you look at fine art, collectible cars, they have been perceived historically as safe havens,” said Fernando Verboonen, founder and CEO of CurioInvest. Verboonen added that each holder of CT1 tokens will benefit from holding a fraction of an asset, although did not delve into a detailed explanation at that juncture. CurioInvest’s site specifies that a token owner is able to share in any potential profit when the vehicle is resold, wherein the amount of money they get is directly proportional to the value of the car. It is also said that “any vehicle that increases…Feb 3, 2020
This post is part of CoinDesk’s 2019 Year in Review, a collection of 100 op-eds, interviews and takes on the state of blockchain and the world. Brian Behlendorf is the Executive Director of Hyperledger, an open source group advancing cross-industry blockchain technology. 2019 has been a year of growth and maturity in the use of blockchain technology for real business needs. Even the term “blockchain” is mostly out of favor, never fully shaking its association with get-rich-quick schemes and behavioral engineering, and now avoided by anyone trying to get upper-management support for their work, in favor of “distributed ledgers” and “smart contract systems.” Long gone are the days when an iced tea company could get a stock boost using the B word. Instead, this was a year of more prosaic BUIDLing, with announcements of production systems and value being created, punctuated by headlines showing policymakers and CEOs more broadly understanding and wrestling with the transformative impact the technology is starting to have. And, on the ground, there’s nothing like lean times to sharpen developer attention on common code and common…Dec 19, 2019
