- Twitch streamer Alinity finds herself in hot water after an old clip goes viral.
- Twitter users posted controversial comments the streamer made in 2018, discussing cheating in relationships.
- Alinity responded to the video, saying that it was her way of “projecting my insecurities.”
Twitch streamer Alinity found herself the target of abuse and vitriol after an old clip from one of her streamers went viral.
In 2018 video, reposted on May 20 by a Twitter user named JordanPooleWrld, Alinity said that when men are in relationships but are attracted to other women, it amounts to “cheating.”
However, when a woman is attracted to other men, it suggests that she’s not getting something from her relationship. Many picked holes in Alinity’s logic, calling the streamer “less intelligent,” among other, more strongly-worded things.

The video has 1.8 million views, confirming its viral status. No one is calling for Alinity to be banned over this, the way they were after Pokimane’s NSFW accident last week. But it is being used to criticize her.
Is Alinty’s Clip Too Old to Matter?
Alinity was confused about why the video is causing controversy. The streamer tweeted:
It was me projecting my insecurities about being cheated on, and a dumb thing to say.
Twitch users had mixed responses. Some thought that it was so far in the past that it should be forgotten. Others kept bringing up the Alinity animal abuse allegations when the streamer threw her cat during a stream.
The controversy highlights the frustrations of being a popular streamer. Twitch clips and YouTube compilations of streamer moments can all help a creator become popular. But they can also be used against them.

The price of Bitcoin SV (BSV) surged by a massive 28 percent on Friday as traders assessed a key development in the ongoing legal dispute involving founder Craig Wright. The self-proclaimed Bitcoin creator submitted a total of 428 documents to the plaintiffs, one of them allegedly including details of a trust that holds billions of dollars worth of bitcoin. Mr. Wright’s legal counselors marked the paper “Tulip Trust III” as confidential. The decision raised suspicions that their client – indeed – was involved in the mining of first batch of bitcoin alongside his deceased partner Dave Kleiman. Bitcoin SV supporters, who expect Mr. Wright to dump part of that bitcoin for BSV, got euphoric on the news. New: Craig Wright just so happened to have a third “Tulip Trust” set up to hold that missing $10 billion fund. He sent the info about the “Tulip Trust III” in a document dump of 428 dossiers.

In the context of data security, modern digital businesses realize the dangers that come with using sensitive information in its raw form.

At the start of the year, it was clear that Bitcoin was in an accumulation phase, where “smart money” buys up an asset in anticipation of a sizable increase in value during the following markup phase. According to the Wyckoff method, after the price of an asset is sufficiently marked up, comes the distribution phase when investors begin dumping the asset at a substantial profit. An uncommon Bitcoin metric that looks at BTC held for a certain amount of time has suddenly spiked, suggesting that distribution is peaking, and massive profit-taking is underway. Average Spent Output Lifespan of Bitcoin Reaches Highest This Year Markets are cyclical and go through certain phases again and again. After Bitcoin was accumulated below $4,000, the crypto asset rocketed in price, causing it to rise as much as 350% from trough to peak before the first-ever cryptocurrency began to consolidate above $10,000.

Bitcoin has spent the past six weeks or so consolidating leading many analysts to believe the bottom is in. Fundamentals are strengthening, however, and these three could spark the next bull run for BTC. Bitcoin is currently up almost 2.5% on the day tapping weekly resistance at $7,480 a couple of hours ago. A rally that was initiated by US military action on Iranian targets has held its gains but the longer-term picture shows BTC still range-bound. Until it breaks above $8k no further momentum is likely but these strengthening fundamentals could be the catalyst for the bulls to return. Hash Rate High According to bitinfocharts.com hash rate has just hit a record high of 114.5 EH/s. This is eight times higher than it was during the late 2017 bubble as noted by industry observers. “The Bitcoin fundamentals tell me that the #BTC price is about to explode SOON!” The #Bitcoin hashrate has hit a new all time high of 119,354,000 Th/s.

Leading cryptocurrency exchange Binance became the first cryptocurrency exchange to implement the fiat gateway of stablecoin operator Paxos. On Nov. 12, Paxos announced the launch of its Fiat Gateway, a service that allows its users to swap between dollars and stablecoins on a one-to-one basis. A deepening collaboration While the service has been available to Paxos users since May, Binance has fully integrated it, making it available to all of its customers. Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao hinted that the two companies could deepen their collaboration further in the future: “The new Fiat Gateway is the fastest, simplest U.S. dollar on/off ramp for our customers. We look forward to working more closely with Paxos to integrate additional solutions.” The two firms have worked together in the past. In June, Paxos allowed its user to deposit fiat currency onto its platform and have the balance appear directly in PAX stablecoins in their Binance accounts. In September, Binance partnered with Paxos to jointly launch a new U.S. dollar-backed stablecoin regulated by the New York State Department of Financial Services.
