Warning: Discord Bitcoin (BTC) Scam is Making the Rounds

A Discord scam promises 0.25 Bitcoin (BTC) worth more than $2,500 at current prices, only for registering on Billaxy.com. The scam is spreading through Discord channels dedicated to other cryptocurrency topics. The scam, announced in a Reddit thread, exists in several varieties, all leading to dubious sites that require registration. The scam spoofs well-visited crypto sites, such as Bilaxy.com, with misspelt writing or small subtle changes. So far, there have been no reports of the sites trying to steal private keys. However, new registrations may make old passwords vulnerable for some users, who do not care to launch a new password. Crypto Giveaways Raise Doubts Giveaways are becoming one of the more common forms of scam activity in the crypto space. Recently, even Binance Coin (BNB) has been offered in giveaways. But BTC and ETH giveaways are also appearing in […]

Why Bitfinex No Longer Rules Over Bitcoin (BTC)

Trading volumes for Bitcoin (BTC) on the Bitfinex exchange seem to vanish into thin air. Analysts noted that about a year ago, Bitfinex served as the primary exchange for BTC price discovery – but that situation changed, and now the market carries only about 3% of its former volumes. Fallen From Power On Bitfinex, BTC volumes are just around $57 million, a small fraction of the total $17 billion daily volumes. The exchange, once a powerhouse of activity, seems to have dwindled to the size of a small-scale market. Total volumes are now around $137 million in 24 hours. The drop in volumes is also surprising since Bitfinex is one of the exchanges considered to have realistic volumes compared to the number of user visits. A little less than a year ago, Bitfinex’s volumes were 100k BTC/day. Today it’s less […]

Six Addresses Are Dominating Ethereum (ETH) Usage Right Now

Six addresses seem to be the most active ones on Ethereum, burning up above 45% of all gas. All seem related to a single smart contract, awakening the suspicion of Reddit users. Six Wallets Circle Funds with One Smart Contract The common thread between the six most active wallets on the Ethereum network is that they are all communicating with contract “0x01eacc3ae59ee7fbbc191d63e8e1ccfdac11628c”. This smart contract has been rising to the top of the list as the biggest Ethereum gas burner. As of September 20, the smart contract hogged 39.6% of all Ethereum gas. Just a day ago, the contract only used up 17%. The activity has been defined as Fair Win, a game spreading through Chinese social media channels. Some believe Fair Win is a pure Ponzi scheme that suckers in new buyers to continue the operation. However, the pattern […]

Bitcoin ATM Installations Up 500% Since 2016

It’s official. Despite Bitcoin’s ups and downs, demand continues to surge. There are now 5,457 Bitcoin ATMs globally according to Statistica. Actually, that number is at odds with Coin ATM Radar who places Bitcoin ATMs at 5,590 worldwide. This just goes to show how quickly new installations are appearing on a daily basis. As bitrawr tweeted out, this clearly shows: supply meeting a demand The number of #Bitcoin ATMs from September 2016 to September 2019 has increased by over 500% As of now, there are currently 5,457 Bitcoin ATMs globally.

Ripple Labs Attempts to Quash Legal Action By Jan 2020

Blockchain payment network operator Ripple has sparked fresh controversy after trying to dismiss a lawsuit accusing it of selling unregistered securities. Lawyers Attempt To Ditch Lawsuit In court documents uploaded by Fortune on September 19, lawyers for the company stated twelve reasons why they considered the accusations to be false. The move forms the latest episode in a long battle between Ripple and investor Bradley Sostack, who bought XRP tokens in 2013.  Sostack argues prior to XRP going on sale, Ripple did not consult with US authorities as to whether the token constituted a security in need of regulation.  A separate debacle involves Ripple’s actual jurisdiction over XRP, with various company sources giving conflicting accounts of the two entities’ relationship. Despite this, lawyers maintain that XRP is not a security.  Now, however, confidence in their claims appears strangely absent. As […]

Fed Flooding Money Markets as SEC Blindly Bashes Bitcoin Again

So far there has been little indication that US regulators will change their harsh stance towards bitcoin and the crypto industry. Blinkered by false notions, they continue with their anti-crypto rhetoric making America one of the most highly regulated countries for crypto startups. As the Federal Reserve continues to flood US money markets with cash, the Securities and Exchange Commission remains adamant that bitcoin needs further regulation. It seems bizarre that the central bank can pump more than the entire crypto market capitalization into the system in order to control lending rates, but they’re worried about a few crypto traders and some decentralized assets. Fed Prints BTC+ETH Market Cap Worth in 3 Days The Federal Reserve is likely to pump another $75 billion into the system today in its fourth day of economy patching measures. A surge in short term […]

How 2019 Has Been an Annus Horribilis For Altcoins

There have been very few beneficiaries from crypto market movements this year. Bitcoin has clearly won the race and while a few of the altcoins have dragged themselves out of the mud at the bottom of the digital pond, many are still massively down from their all-time highs. Worst Year For Altcoins? A recent longhash report has taken a look at altcoin performance so far this year and it does not make positive reading. Some crypto assets have performed well against the USD or Tether but have been battered by bitcoin. Even with a drop of 25% from its own 2019 peak, bitcoin has still eaten away at the market capitalization of almost every other crypto asset. Its dominance has been steadily rising all year and remains just under 70%, which is still a two year high according to Tradingview.com. […]

Why Using Cryptocurrencies is the Best Payment Option Method

Cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin have been around for about a decade now, but it was in 2017 when many people are suddenly interested in it. In that year, Bitcoin was valued at around 20,000 US dollars per coin. This was its highest value since it was created by Satoshi Nakamoto in 2009. Because of this, many people are suddenly turning their cash into a cryptocurrency. Cryptos are mainly used for online transactions and by investors who are looking to get tokens or returns from startups and businesses.

VERDAD is the Most Dangerous Crypto Bill to Face Congress Yet

The U.S. Congress is considering more than 20 bills on cryptocurrency.

Former Ethereum advisor Steven Nerayoff and his assistant Michael Hlady have been arrested and charged with extorting millions of dollars in crypto funds. Nerayoff Facing Jail Time? The Justice Department has released a statement about the incident, claiming that both men were threatening to “destroy a startup cryptocurrency company if they were not paid millions of dollars” in ether tokens. U.S. Attorney Richard Donoghue explains:  As alleged, Nerayoff and Hlady carried out an old-fashioned shakedown to be paid off with 21st century cryptocurrency. The company at the center of the duo’s extortion attempts is a Seattle-based enterprise that remains unnamed at press time. The company provides a cryptocurrency rewards program that provides users with crypto depending on how much they utilize the company’s products.

Why the QCAD Stablecoin Might be a Scam

The influx of stablecoins in the cryptocurrency space cannot be ignored. Although numerous projects compete with one another, Tether’s USDT remains the dominant market. Foreign stablecoins, such as the one backed by the Euro, are also successful, albeit with less volume. It now appears a Canadian stablecoin will be issued, although there are some concerns regarding the project itself.  The QCAD Concept One has to commend every single project which aims to digitize fiat currencies and create a more useful variant of said currency. In Canada, it would be logical to see a stablecoin backed by the Canadian Dollar at some point. If the Stablecorp website is to be believed, such a project is currently in development. It aims to peg the Canadian Dollar to the QCAD stablecoin and maintain value equivalency at all times. That is much easier said […]
