CipherTrace Defenders League is coming together in what may not be the first yet definite an unprecedented move for the cryptocurrency sphere.
Reportedly, CipherTrace is now putting together a band of students dubbed the CipherTrace Defenders League. CipherTrace, another new startup from Silicon Valley, is now hiring graduate students to find and trace cryptocurrency funds lost in various frauds and theft cases. The startup aims to help bring the lost cryptocurrency into the financial regulations box through cryptocurrency wallet addresses.
The cryptosphere has been taking heat from the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) and other authorities working against financial crimes to cleanse the blockchain and cryptocurrency sphere. The chief concerns have been money laundering, fraud, use of cryptocurrency for criminal activities and tax evasion.
In most cases, addresses are often available through third-party tracing services and victim’s blockchain while from law-enforcement agencies in some cases.
What is CipherTrace Defenders League?
For now, students from over 11 universities and institutes through the Blockchain Acceleration Foundation (BAF) have been approached. These students would be put together as the first line of defense against cryptocurrency fraud and improve blockchain traceability.
Brith institute Middlesex and Middlebury are reportedly among the institute operating in a non-profit structure under the banner of BAF.
CipherTrace training would enable students to use the blockchain-based software to track over 800 cryptocurrencies. The list includes Bitcoin and Ethereum among various other cryptocurrencies.
The system is coming together in a harmonious cycle where the human resource would allow CipherTrace to small-time frauds and lost cryptocurrency that falls below the law-enforcement interest.

Many Venezuelans have been buying up Bitcoin in ever-increasing numbers to hedge against currency devaluation. An Unparalleled Currency Crisis Venezuela was once one of the wealthiest countries in Latin America, with the highest standard of living on the entire continent. It’s massive oil reserves are the largest in the world, exceeding even those of Saudi Arabia. A resource-rich country Venezuela has fallen into a devastating economic crisis that is reminiscent of the legendary currency collapse of the Weimar Republic. In fact, Venezuela’s currency crisis may be worse. The country’s problems began when oil prices took a major decline. Oil revenues were the main source of funding for the social welfare programs instituted under former Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez. Chavez initiated massive subsidies for food, housing, and other programs that were designed to eliminate poverty, and made him extremely popular with the Venezuelan people. When oil prices declined, the social programs and subsidies began to exacerbate the economic problems, and the Government decided to monetize the debt through inflation rather than cut the programs that many of the nation’s poor depend…Jan 27, 2020
Binance Charity, the blockchain-based charity arm of the world’s number one cryptocurrency exchange by trading volume, has announced that it has initiated the Australia Bushfire Donations project to help raise funds for the restoration of the region which has been devastated by wildfires. Binance Charity plans to donate a whopping $1 million worth of its native altcoin, Binance coin (BNB) as a lead donor, according to a blog post on January 8, 2020.

Bitcoin Core and other open-source projects have, over the years, built a range of technologies to improve Bitcoin scaling and the general Bitcoin user experience. With examples including Segregated Witness (SegWit), Replace-By-Fee and the Lightning Network, Bitcoin users have a number of tools at their disposal to utilize the Bitcoin blockchain as best and efficiently as possible. Yet, bigger companies in particular have historically been slow to adopt such tools. Segregated Witness is a prime example: Several of the largest Bitcoin businesses hadn’t adopted the upgrade for over a year after it was activated on the Bitcoin network in August 2017. The total share of SegWit transactions even remained below 50 percent until the second half of 2019. This was also noticed by John Newbery, engineer at Chaincode Labs; Steve Lee, former Google product director turned product manager at Square Crypto; and James O’Beirne, former Chaincode engineer who recently joined DG Lab. Seeing this and other discrepancies, they wanted to help resolve the apparent disconnect. In mid-2018, the trio founded an initiative to bridge the gap: Bitcoin Optech. “Bitcoin is…Feb 18, 2020
Model Emily Ratajkowski dumped her feelings about Bernie Sanders dropping out of the presidential race today. She said she was “hopeless and devastated.” Maybe if she supported Bernie when he needed it most, instead of posting semi-nude photos, he would’ve had a chance. Bernie Sanders dropped out of the presidential race today. Supermodel and ‘influencer’ Emily Ratajkowski took to Twitter today to dump her feelings about it. Let’s all cry for the supermodel. | Source: Twitter She said she was and “hopeless and devastated and powerless.” While I, too, would pick Bernie Sanders over ‘Sleepy’ Joe Biden, I wasn’t foolish enough to believe in the DNC. Maybe Emily Ratajkowski Should’ve Done a Little More ‘Influencing’ I can understand Emily Ratajkowski’s feelings of hopelessness. We are once again stuck between a rock and a dumb place, with two terrible presidential candidates. Emily has made her feelings about Bernie Sanders relatively visible in past months, but not nearly as visible as her body. When Bernie’s campaign was flashing red alert signals for help, where was Emily? Oh, that’s right, posting semi-nude photos…Apr 9, 2020
Travis Kling, the Founder of crypto-focused Ikigai Fund and former equity portfolio manager, talked about the utility of Bitcoin. He also hinted that other payment cryptocurrencies might not hold value. Kling, like many, was an early skeptic of Bitcoin. However, he converted into a Bitcoin maximalist soon enough. He reiterated the fact that Bitcoin doesn’t need to be a sound payment system because no likes to spend their Bitcoins. He said, “Bitcoin is too good at being a store of value right now to be a good method of exchange, nobody wants to be the Bitcoin Pizza guy that spent 10k Bitcoin on a pizza,” According to him, while gold is rare, “Bitcoin has even more provable scarcity than gold.” The price of Bitcoin [BTC] at 5: 00 Hours UTC on 14th September 2019 is $10,300. It is trading at par on a daily scale. The global economic turmoil and exodus of altcoins have both attributed to the rise of Bitcoin this year.

Financial service powerhouse Goldman Sachs Group Inc. lost another one of its top brass on February 5 after two other executives expressed departure plans several days prior. Goldman Sachs partner Rana Yared plans to exit her position at Goldman Sachs for a VC outfit, a source told Bloomberg for a Feb. 5 article. During her time at Goldman, Yared played a major role in the financial giant’s crypto endeavors. Goldman in crypto Since 2017, the blockchain and crypto industry has seen an influx of traditional market entities in some capacity. In July 2019, a job post from Goldman Sachs hinted at the firm’s potentially growing interest in the industry. Additionally, since last fall, several Goldman Sachs’ alumni have moved into the industry, including Howard Surloff, who joined Blockchain.com’s general counsel last October.

By Dmitriy Gurkovskiy, Chief Analyst at RoboForex On Tuesday, March 31st, the ETH is slightly growing, trading at 132.68 USD. On H4, the correctional phase has acquired the shape of a triangular consolidation. The longer it lasts, the more powerful will be the exit from it. The MACD heading upwards points at the potential breakout of the resistance at 135.40 USD and growth to 175.00 USD. However, even in such situations, the potential breakout of the support at 125.35 USD and a decline to the low of 89.80 USD should not be neglected. On H1, the correctional growth of ETH/USD reached 38.2% Fibo and changed into a Triangle. The potential extension of the correctional phase and growth to 50.0% (171.35 USD) may only happen after the breakaway of the local resistance. However, preparation for a Black Cross on the Stochastic warns of a decline to the local support. Then the market will be looking for outer stimuli to exit the consolidation. The Opera browser will feature the possibility to buy the ETH in New Zealand, Switzerland, Mexica, and Australia. To…Mar 31, 2020
