Analysts Say Bitcoin Has Become “Boring”

For the last several months, the volatility of bitcoin appears to have calmed down somewhat. The world’s number one digital currency by market cap has, to one degree or another, been hovering around the $20K mark for some time, and while there are little moments here and there when it goes up or down, the range appears to be relatively consistent. Bitcoin Volatility Has Remained Relatively Still With all this in mind, it appears bitcoin trading has become rather “boring” as of late. This is the word some analysts have used to describe bitcoin and its present state of being, and some argue this isn’t necessarily a bad thing. The idea that bitcoin’s volatility is dying down somewhat suggests, according to several industry heads, that the asset has finally bottomed out. What has been an extremely rocky year for the leader of digital […]

Crypto Mining Companies Really Have It Hard

The crypto mining sector is falling apart, and miners are being hit from all angles at the time of writing. Crypto Mining Is Beginning to Crash and Burn To be fair, the prices of many mainstream digital assets – such as bitcoin, the world’s number one digital currency by market cap – have remained relatively still over the past few weeks. While things are nowhere near as solid as they were a year ago, volatility has remained relatively low in the autumn and winter months compared to where they were in the summer. Bitcoin continues to hover at around $20K for the most part, so it’s not really prices that are hurting miners in the long run. However, while prices for digital assets are remaining somewhat still, the same cannot be said for energy prices, which continue to spike in recent months […]

Crypto Winter Casualties Continue: Kraken To Lay Off Over 1,000 Employees

Kraken, the world’s third-largest exchange by trading volume, announced cutting off its workforce by 30% to deal with current market conditions. Specifically, the San-Francisco based company has reduced its staff by 1,100 employees. When the crypto market was already facing long-lasting winter, the FTX fiasco added fuel to the fire by pulling down the Bitcoin price to a two-year low. Though the crypto exchange’s fall led global authorities to tighten regulations and start probes in various platforms, lower crypto prices also pushed cryptocurrency companies to cut their staff to survive in the bear market.  Jesse Powell, Kraken co-founder and CEO, explained in a blog post that the platform had tripled its workforce during the previous bull market to offer its users a seamless experience. But, unfortunately, the market pullback pushed the company to bring its headcount back to where it […]

No Love Lost: Why Bitcoin Is Becoming ‘Irrelevant,’ According To ECB Officials

Bitcoin has been under the radar of the the European Central Bank and now the level of monitoring has grown to such extent that puts Bitcoin in a bad light. The ECB has made a caustic comment arguing against providing regulatory validity to bitcoin, claiming that the cryptocurrency is experiencing an “artificially induced” final hurrah before totally losing its importance. The ECB Market Infrastructure and Payments Division’s Jürgen Schaff and Ulrich Bindseil both emphasized how the most well-known cryptocurrency in the world has failed to replace or advance the current monetary system. Bitcoin’s logical structure and practical flaws, according to Schaff and Bindseil, make the cryptocurrency “doubtful” as a payment method. Prior to declining below USD 17,000 by mid-June 2022, the price of bitcoin reached a high of USD 69,000 in November last year. Since then, the price of Bitcoin […]

Ripple Vs. SEC: Upcoming Replies Won’t Lift Hinman-Secrets, Attorney Claims

Rumors have surfaced in recent days that a landmark day in the legal battle between Ripple Labs and the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission could be coming up on Monday, December 5, or even tomorrow, December 2. At the center of the speculation are the Hinman documents. Ripple has succeeded in forcing the release of these documents as part of the legal battle. According to some legal experts, this may give the company an important bargaining chip against the SEC. The documents could provide background information on why William Hinman, the former director of the Division of Corporation Finance at the SEC, stated on June 14, 2018, that Bitcoin and Ethereum, but no other cryptocurrency, are classifiable as non-securities. The speculation is that if Ripple does not mention and publish Hinman as part of its summary judgment response filing, a […]

Breaking: CFTC Chair Behnam Shifts Stance, Says Only Bitcoin Is A Commodity, Not Ethereum

Curiously, the crypto industry was watching Sam Bankman-Fried’s (SBF) interview at the Dealbook summit a few hours ago. In the meantime, however, an extremely important shift in regulatory stance has occurred in the question of which other cryptocurrencies are commodities besides Bitcoin. The U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) has been publicly advocating for quite some time that both Bitcoin and Ethereum (ETH) are commodities. However, that regulatory assessment appears to have changed radically yesterday. Speaking at a crypto event at Princeton University, CFTC chairman Rostin Behnam stated that the only cryptocurrency that should be considered a commodity is Bitcoin. In doing so, he is doing a complete backpedal from previous statements when he implied that Ether is also a commodity. As Fortune reports, Behnam called the matrix of regulators an “imperfect system,” possibly to justify his new assessment, but […]

Manitoba Halts New Crypto Mining Projects Due to Expected High Energy Demand

Authorities in Manitoba are temporarily suspending the connection of new crypto mining facilities to the power grid. The Canadian province, which relies heavily on hydroelectric generation and attracts miners with low electricity rates, fears it may face overwhelming energy demand. Manitoba Suspends New Crypto Mining Operations Citing Possible Increase in Electricity Usage The government of Manitoba is halting new connections of crypto mining centers to the province’s hydroelectric grid, the Canadian press reported. Officials explain the move with the potential for increasing energy demand that the region may not be able to meet. The suspension, imposed for a period of 18 months, will not affect the 37 currently active mining operations, according to an article by the Toronto Star. The measure is aimed at halting a growing number of requests to power new facilities with combined capacity amounting to a […]

US Treasury’s Yellen Says Crypto Doesn’t Have Adequate Regulation — Calls FTX Collapse ‘a Lehman Moment’

Bitcoin Trading Volume Outside Binance Falls To Lowest Since Feb 2021

Data shows the Bitcoin spot trading volume outside Binance has fallen to its lowest value since the February of 2021. Bitcoin Trading Volume Continues To Tumble As Market Calms Down As per the latest weekly report from Arcane Research, volume including Binance is still at a high level right now. The “trading volume” here is an indicator that measures the total amount of Bitcoin moved on the Bitwise 10 exchanges in a day.

When the value of the trading volume is high, it means investors are taking part in large amounts of trades on exchanges right now. Such a trend suggests the market is active currently. On the other hand, low values imply holders […]

Bitcoin Hashrate Continues Sharp Plunge As Miners Give Up

The “mining hashrate” is an indicator that measures the total amount of computing power connected to the Bitcoin network. When the value of this metric goes up, it means miners are bringing more machines online right now. Such a trend shows miners are bullish on the crypto in the long term. On the other hand, a decrease in the indicator’s value suggests miners are disconnecting some of their rigs currently. This kind of trend implies miners aren’t finding the blockchain attractive to mine on at […]
