IOTA Attacked for Subpar Wallet Security Following $4m Hack

The IOTA project is again the target of public anger and criticism. This time the issue is a feature of the technology that apparently allowed scammers to steal around $4 million from many unsuspecting users. Also Read: U.S. Rating Agency to Issue Bitcoin and Cryptocurrency Grades Wednesday Poisonous Seeds IOTA, the network behind the 11th most valuable cryptocurrency in the world by market cap (MIOTA), is coming under an attack on social media and community forums.

Onecoin’s Bulgarian Offices Raided by Law Enforcement, No Arrests Made

It has been a while since we last heard any major Onecoin-related news, though this notorious Ponzi scheme has been in the crosshairs of law enforcement agencies for quite some time now. It is evident this scheme will fall apart at some point in the near future. The company’s offices in Sofia, Bulgaria were raided by law enforcement agents this week. It is good to see officials crack down on clear scams such as this one before things really get out of hand. Onecoin Receives Another Major Blow Most people who have been active in cryptocurrency for a while will know that Onecoin is something everyone should avoid. The company claims to sell its own digital currency, yet has no blockchain to issue said tokens. As a result, it is evident this currency does not exist, yet it still “issues” the coin to naive investors. […]

Bitcoin To $55k? Mathematical Study Suggests It’s ‘Most Likely’ In 2018

Bitcoin will “most likely” cost over $50,000 in 2018 as a new mathematical study attempts to get a logical prognosis for its price. Cautious Optimism For A Fivefold Increase In results published by data scientist Xoel López Barata who conducted the investigation, Bitcoin appears set to hit $55,530 by the end of this year. “I’ve simulated the bitcoin price for the whole 2018.

Chain Tip Is Another Popular Bitcoin Cash Reddit Tipbot

A few years ago, cryptocurrency tipbots on Reddit were very popular. They were considered to be one of the easiest ways to distribute popular cryptocurrencies on a global scale. Ever since that time, tipbots have been all but forgotten, even though there are a few projects which have remained active to this very day. Chain Tip is one of those Reddit tipbots which mainly focuses on Bitcoin Cash. Now is a good time to see what this project is all about. Chain Tip is a Powerful BCH Tipping Tool As one would expect from any type of Reddit tipbot, using it is very simple. All one needs to do is tag the appropriate Reddit user in a message and enter the amount of BCH they wish to tip.

UK Bitcoiners Might Have Tax Loophole

With success comes attention, and with notice comes the taxman. Bitcoin’s crazy great jump in price over 2017 has taken the world’s most popular cryptocurrency from a curiosity into a begrudgingly valued asset by governments. Capital gains is the tool of most revenue collectors when it comes to crypto, including the United Kingdom (UK). What if investing in bitcoin was really just rank gambling? According to British tax law, that would mean such gains would go untaxed. It’s not as impossible as it might first read.   Also read: Ditch University and High Transaction Fees!

Surviving Crypto Bubble – Lessons From History

Terabytes of articles have been written comparing the historical rise in the price of Bitcoin to the Dotcom bubble of the late 1990’s.  The speculation in new technology companies, particularly by individuals, drove the US NASDAQ stock market to a record high of 5,132.52 on March 10, 2000.  It then lost 78% of its value.   Disclosure: This is a Sponsored Article The point of these articles is usually that “history repeats itself”, and so anyone buying Bitcoin or cryptocurrencies in general now is more likely to end up losing their money than making a fortune.  The suggestion is that the money to be made in cryptocurrencies has already been made by those smart enough to have bought early enough.

CNBC’s Dan Nathan: Bitcoin Cash Will Overtake Bitcoin Soon

Financial experts all over the world have conflicting opinions on Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. A lot of individuals still consider all of cryptocurrency to be a major bubble waiting to burst. Others, such as CNBC’s Dan Nathan, are convinced that Bitcoin will not remain the top cryptocurrency for much longer. Nathan claims that the top position is ripe for the taking and that Bitcoin Cash will eventually take its “rightful place” at the top of the list. Dan Nathan Clearly Favors Bitcoin Cash Given everything that has transpired in the world of cryptocurrency lately, it is somewhat surprising to see Bitcoin leading the rankings in 2018.

Pentagon Ponders Nuclear Response to Cyberattacks

Our entire society is almost completely dependent on electronics and cyberinfrastructure.

The lack of volatility in global markets is leading investors to seek riskier investments with increased rewards. Cryptocurrencies, such as Bitcoin, are being used to feed this increased investor appetite.  Analysts at Deutsche Bank have asserted that there is a correlation between the price of Bitcoin and the volatility index (VIX). The analysts backed up their  argument saying that the first three weeks of 2018 so far show “correlation between Bitcoin and VIX has increased dramatically.” The analysts go on to say: The current ‘triple-low environment’ of low interest rates, low spreads, and low volatility has given birth to new asset classes like implied volatility (ETFs selling volatility), and cryptocurrencies.
