Safeguarding Investments: Cryptimi.com Offers the Solution

Anyone venturing into the digital currency scene understands the significance of performing analyses to evaluate potential gains.

Chainalysis and Paxful Partner Up to Develop Safer, Stronger Crypto Trades

Blockchain analysis company Chainalysis has joined hands with peer-to-peer (P2P) marketplace Paxful to create a safer, stronger trading platform for those looking to exchange or trade cryptocurrencies in the future. Chainalysis and Paxful… The Perfect Match? With so much theft and malicious activity occurring throughout the crypto space over the past few years, many companies like Chainalysis realize that while digital assets are here to stay and edging closer to mainstream territory, they don’t possess the security features necessary to keep them in play. That’s why, after 12 long years, bitcoin is still considered a purely speculative asset by some rather than a legitimate currency that can be used by businesses or individuals alike to pay for goods and services. Peer-to-peer marketplaces can also be very risky in that traders, buyers and sellers are never fully clear on who they’re […]

These Sites Are Creating False QR Codes to Take Your Crypto Stashes

A series of allegedly fake sites built to generate QR codes have stolen bitcoin from unsuspecting users. Fake QR Codes Designed to Steal Bitcoin The total amount of money stolen exceeds $45,000, all of which has been taken over the last four weeks.

Traders have enough to worry about with the economic problems occurring that are bringing bitcoin’s price and status down. Now that so many investors have lost value in their portfolios, they need to worry about losing their coins altogether thanks to a group of malicious sites… The webpages in question give people the option of entering the addresses of their bitcoin wallets.

Bitcoin Has Fallen By Another $200

At the time of writing, bitcoin – the world’s number one cryptocurrency by market cap – has fallen an additional $200 and is now trading for just over $6,000. Bitcoin Has Dropped Another $200 This means the currency has lost about $700 in just a few days. At the end of last week, the asset had reached a solid price of about $6,700 – a nice throwback to where it had been before all this crazy coronavirus panic. While this was still more than $3,000 less than its February high point, bitcoin looked like it was beginning to move up the financial ladder and that the asset was once again entering bullish territory. The joy spread throughout the crypto arena, but now it looks like that good fortune wasn’t designed to last. The asset dropped to about $6,200 yesterday, and […]

Singapore-based Huobi is the latest crypto exchange to launch perpetual swaps. The new product is live on Huobi DM, the company’s derivative trading platform.

Bitcoin Mining Roundup: BTC Regains 100 Exahash, Miners Close Shop, Pre-Halving Shake-Up

In 44 days, BTC miners will face the third reward halving as the block subsidy will soon shrink from 12.5 to 6.25 coins per block. Following the market carnage in mid-March, BTC’s hashrate plummeted 44% to a 2020 low of 75 exahash per second (EH/s). Since then the hashrate has climbed back above 100EH/s, but profitability between SHA256 networks like BCH and BSV has been a lot more erratic than usual.

Ethereum Mining Saved, Bitmain Updates Antminer E3 Firmware

Ethereum miners no longer need to worry about Antminer E3’s obsolescence coming next month as Bitmain has released a firmware update earlier today. Antminer E3 Was About to Become Useless at Mining Ethereum On Monday, Beijing-based mining equipment manufacturer Bitmain announced that it had updated the firmware of the Antminer E3. This will allow Ethereum miners to continue using the machine without being afraid of its obsolescence. Bitmain pointed to recent media reports, according to which the equipment, which was designed specifically for mining Ethereum and Ethereum Classic, will stop being relevant by next month. The allegations were based on hash rate output projections made by altcoin mining pool operator 2Miners. The miner stressed that the recent decline in the hash rate output of the equipment would make it obsolete by April. In a blog post published at the end […]

How Blockchain Impacts the World

Since its inception back in early 2009, blockchain technology has come a long way. With the waves that Bitcoin has made all across the media for the past few years, blockchain app development has gained serious recognition and it is starting to become more and more present in our daily lives. In the beginning, blockchain was created as an economic experiment, giving birth to the first version of this technology, also known as blockchain v1.0. At that point, this new tech’s focus relied solely on currency, assuring that transactions are made securely and anonymously, without any third-party involvement. This experiment proved to be a success, and so blockchain continuously evolved for the coming years. Smart Contracts appeared, and then blockchain apps became a thing, and now more and more businesses adopt this technology due to its reliability and difficulty of […]

Bitcoin Whale Sends 5,500 BTC to Binance Worth $33.8M

Twitter bot Whale Alert reported that 5,500 Bitcoin was moved from an unknown wallet to Binance, prompting fears that the transaction might lead to a significant drop. $33.8M Worth of BTC Moved from Unknown Wallet to Binance On March 29, about $33.8 million worth of Bitcoin left an unknown wallet to reach Binance. The crypto exchange hasn’t confirmed yet that this was an internal move, which makes the crypto community think this might be another example of how institutional investors are dumping the cryptocurrency. 5,500 #BTC (33,856,623 USD) transferred from unknown wallet to #Binance Tx: https://t.co/lYfUI5S7GS — Whale Alert (@whale_alert) March 29, 2020 Some commentators implied that a steep in the Bitcoin price coincided with the move, which proved that it was not about Binance about reshuffling its wallets.

Roger Ver Virtually Dismisses the Coronavirus Crisis

The coronavirus crisis is a global pandemic and swiftly approaches 1 million confirmed cases worldwide. Some people still dismiss this threat, including Roger Ver. Not everyone in the cryptocurrency space thinks the coronavirus is worth all of the media attention. Roger Ver Isn’t Worried About the Coronavirus Roger Ver, the promoter of Bitcoin Cash – which is not the real Bitcoin – is one of these people dismissing it as a fad. More specifically, he recently posted a Tweet that did not go over well with a lot of people. It would appear that Roger Ver isn’t a fan of self-isolating to prevent the coronavirus from spreading further. He also claims how the number of deaths caused by COVID-19 appear to be statistically insignificant. It is true that other incidents and diseases cause many more deaths around the globe.
