Jan 01, 2020 at 16:41 // News It is worthy to note that BCH had a remarkable run above $200 and that the bullish move is ongoing. Undoubtedly, it is probable for the coin to attain the $227 or $240 price levels. Hopefully, BCH has crossed into the former larger price range. There are no foreseeable barriers as the coin accomplishes the previous highs. The upward move must be urgent above the $200 otherwise the bears could slide below the support at $200. This will portend negatively on the coin and a setback as well. Nonetheless, it is expected that a successful penetration above $227 will pose easy attainment of the $240 price level. Meanwhile, any barriers at the $227 will compel the coin to a sideways move. Meanwhile, we expect BCH to have more buyers than sellers at the upper price level. Bitcoin Cash Indicator Reading It is exciting that the bulls have finally broken above the EMAs. Earlier on the 12-day EMA has posed a barrier to price upward movement. Nevertheless, with the current development, the coin is…Jan 1, 2020

Now, scammers are posing themselves as the National Health Service (NHS) to trick the citizens of Great Britain out of their cryptocurrency. The number of fake emails from the NHS has grown rapidly. Scammers usually infect such emails with bitcoin ransomware or credentials stealing malware and target hospitals mostly. In some cases, it has even led to the blocking of entire clinical systems. Other emails ask for cryptocurrency donations as if to help victims of coronavirus. All this has triggered Action Fraud, a UK fraud and cybercrime reporting centre, to join forces with London police and issue another scam alert about these schemes. The alert was published on the organization’s Twitter page. It warns people against opening any emails of NHS or donating money, as the organization does not accept cryptocurrency. We continue to receive a high volume of reports about fake emails being used to solicit donations to the NHS. The NHS will never ask you to send money directly…Apr 10, 2020

COVID-19 has caused governments and companies alike to start closing down huge conferences and events – the $1.5 trillion global event industry has seen the vast majority of events close, rescheduled, or go entirely virtual. In February, Facebook announced that it was cancelling the annual F8 tech conference, Twitter has shut down any unnecessary travel until further notice – including barring CEO Jack Dorsey from attending SXSW in March, which itself was canceled soon after. Even the World Health Organization’s annual conference was closed due to coronavirus fears. Even before COVID-19 struck down conferences and events, many were phasing out due to a number of reasons. A lack of focusing on specific topics as events grow can be harmful and create a negative experience for event-goers. “3,000 attendees would come for one things and 1,000 would come for something else. If you’re developing for PC’s, do you care about AI or self-driving cars?” says Jack Gold, principal analyst at J Gold Associates.
