New $3 Billion Wipeout: Altcoins Start The Week Poorly

Published

on

Over the past 24 hours, the cryptocurrency market lost more than $3 billion – going from $212 billion to $209 billion in less than one day. Major altcoins such as Stellar (XLM) and Cardano (ADA) were in the focus of the crypto news, falling from 3% to 6% accordingly.

On top of this, Stellar and Cardano were among the three cryptocurrencies alongside Zcash that are expected to be integrated into Coinbase, which is the fourth largest fiat-to-crypto exchange behind Bitfinex, Bithumb and Upbit.

Before the listing, there were some tokens such as Basic Attention Token (BAT) and 0x (ZRX) which surged in the range of 100 to 120 percent, doubling their prices. However, they also managed to record large losses afterwards. BAT, for example, saw a drop of more than 36%, going from $0.36 to $0.24.

Stellar, Cardano and Zcash all experienced major rallies following their Coinbase listing – which is why investors would likely see a drop in value to come in the next weeks to come. As technical analysts explain, there are different technical indicators that demonstrate a lack of momentum for both Bitcoin and the rest of the market.

The volume of Bitcoin, on the other hand, is still up from $3 billion to $4.4 billion from late October, while the daily trading volume of the crypto market is up around 30% from $10 billion to $13 billion.

Bitcoin SV (BSV) Doubles In Value After The BTC Copyright Claims

Published

By

Bitcoin BSV
Bitcoin SV (BSV) managed to increase in value and even reached a market valuation of $2,478 in under two hours. The coming altcoin news will show you more of the analysis. There is no clear evidence on how this cryptocurrency managed to attract the additional $1.4 billion. The move happened out of nowhere and the crypto community believes that someone with a lot of money poured them in the eleventh largest cryptocurrency. As of yesterday, the Bitcoin SV (BSV) to dollar exchange rate established an all-time high at $195 which is a 200 percent increase after the market open. The price action was surprising mainly because Bitcoin SV emerged as one of the most controversial cryptocurrencies. The creator of the altcoin Craig Wright is constantly in the headlines after he went after everyone who questioned his identity as the real creator of bitcoin Satoshi Nakamoto. As a result, multiple crypto exchanges Kraken, Binance and ShapeShift delisted BSV causing its price to crash by 50 percent in just 20 days. Bitcoin SV (BSV) rebounded by 36 percent during the bullish sentiment on the market. However, the altcoin failed to overshadow its peers such as bitcoin and ethereum. Suddenly, out of nowhere, BSV increased by up to 200 percent on May 21. The massive price surge came with the bitcoin copyright registrations filed by Dr. Wright with the US government. His associate Calvin Ayer stated:
 “BSV doubled on Craig’s copyright news. This is only the start of him proving BSV is the only bitcoin. Now is a great time to convert all your other shite coins to Bitcoin.”
However, as reported in the latest cryptocurrency news, the copyright does not entitle Craig Wright with any exclusive rights on Bitcoin. It seems as the big pockets are pouring and pumping the Bitcoin SV market to confirm the ‘’we-are-the-best’’ slogan. A massive 200 price surge is one of the reasons why traders should restrain themselves from buying the high or the lower lows. The Bitcoin SV (BSV) price corrected up to 53 percent before establishing a historic high at $195 on Huobi. The market bias is currently bullish and the majority of the technical indicators signal the strong buying sentiment. With the flawed fundamentals, a dump right now should not surprise the market.

Terrorist Groups Are Turning To Cryptocurrencies: FSB Director

terrorist groups
Terrorist groups are finding support with the help of cryptocurrencies and according to Russia’s FSB director Alexander Bortnikov, it represents a huge problem. In today’s altcoin news we read more about his statements. As per the local news outlet RBC, the chief of Russia’s Federal Security Service noted that the international terrorist networks are turning to cryptocurrencies because of their anonymity and quickly increasing value. He pointed out:
 “Electronic payment systems and cryptocurrencies are increasingly being used by terrorists to move money received from some states and organizations that support the global terrorist network.’’
He says that the terrorist groups are getting their finances on direct proceeds from illegally selling oil or other criminal activities. The FSB chief claimed that the main source for the groups is the value transfer system referred to as ‘’hawala.’’ The system enables the parties to conduct the transfers without using financial documents. Bortnikov also told the media that the international terrorist groups are improving the systems that they use for electronic banking and encrypted communication. He stated that there are about 5,000 terrorist groups that are close to the borders in the north region of Afghanistan. Also, ISIS has used bitcoin previously in order to get the funds to conduct the suicide bombing in Sri Lanka which resulted in the death of 253 Christians according to the data intelligence firm Whitestream. Russia is now preparing to fight terrorist funding by targeting retail banking clients. For example, the Sberbank bank which is the largest bank in Russia asked its customers to provide information on all of the earnings made with crypto within five days. The bank is also interested whether some of its clients have any mining equipment in order to obtain further documentation of ownership or lease. According to the headlines in the best cryptocurrency news sites, the co-founder of the trading platform provider Tokenbox.io Vladimir Smerkis posted on Facebook a letter that was sent to the bank. According to the letter, the client transferred to the Sberbank account an amount that he received from cryptocurrencies informing the bank. However, the bank wanted further details on the crypto-related income and the crypto community was shocked that the bank should not go this far.

Bitfinex And Tether Proceed With Case Dismissal Due To Lack Of Jurisdiction

Published

on

By

bitfinex and tether
The lawyers from Bitfinex and Tether recently decided to dismiss their ongoing case versus the New York Attorney General (NYAG), as the recent court filings show on May 21. In the latest cryptocurrency news, the law firms representing the two companies argued that the New York Supreme Court (NYSC) does not have jurisdiction over the alleged misconduct being considered. The lawyers further argue that the NYSC has neither personal nor subject matter jurisdiction and cannot be appealed to - mostly because Bitfinex and Tether are neither operated out of New York nor harmed investors in that state. As the motion shows:
“The Office of the New York Attorney General (“OAG”) initiated this special proceeding ostensibly ‘to protect New York investors.’ [...]"
However, OAG chose to target two virtual currency businesses which are not related with the New York investors - "and don't allow New Yorkers on their platforms and do not advertise or otherwise do business here," as the statement shows. As the coming altcoin news show, the counsel also argues that the Martin Act - which is a law governing securities and commodities which the NYAG is using - does not apply to Tether's stablecoin and is therefore irrelevant to the Bitfinex and Tether case. Speaking of, the case between Bitfinex and Tether was first initiated from a court filing in April signed by Letitia James, who accused the two organizations of defrauding New York investors via a massive $850 million loss cover-up. At the time, James said:
“New York state has led the way in requiring virtual currency businesses to operate according to the law. And we will continue to stand-up for investors and seek justice on their behalf when misled or cheated by any of these companies.”
A new development in the case is on many best cryptocurrency news sites, revealed as the attorney for Bitfinex mentioned that Tether was invested in Bitcoin (BTC) and other assets. The New York Supreme Court Judge Joel M. Cohen responded with questions, stating:
“Tether sounded to me like sort of the calm in the storm of cryptocurrency trading. And so if Tether is backed by bitcoin, how is that consistent? If some of your assets are in a volatile currency that Tether is supposed to somehow modulate, that seems like it’s playing into what they are saying.”

Tether Issuer Claims It Had Invested Its Reserves Into Bitcoin

Published

tether issuer
Tether issuer, the company behind the controversial cryptocurrency stated that it had invested a small part of its reserves in Bitcoin. According to the court filing that we have here today in our altcoin news, ‘’a small amount’’ of the reserves was invested into the largest cryptocurrency. Per the document, the attorney for Tether’s associate company Bitfinex David Miller, says that the Tether issuer has invested a small amount of USDT reserves into bitcoin highlighting that ‘’prior to the Apil 24 order, Tether did invest in instruments beyond cash and cash equivalents, including Bitcoin.’’ Miller stated further that Tether made other investments as well such as purchasing other assets. In response to the statement of the attorney, the New York Supreme Court Judge Joel M. Cohen pointed out the investigation of USDT and tried to understand why someone would invest in such a volatile asset like bitcoin:
 “Tether sounded to me like sort of the calm in the storm of cryptocurrency trading. And so if Tether is backed by bitcoin, how is that consistent? If some of your assets are in a volatile currency that Tether is supposed to somehow modulate, that seems like it’s playing into what they are saying.”
As it was previously reported in the best cryptocurrency news sites, the New York Attorney General’s Office (NYAG) noted that the crypto exchange Bitfinex lost nearly $850 million. The office also stated that Bitfinex used the funds from Tether to try and cover the previously mentioned $850 million. The lawyers for Tether confirmed the rumors that its tokens didn’t really have full reserve backing but that only 74 percent was backed by fiat dollars and some other reserves. The New York Attorney General Letitia James also requested a disclosure for the documents regarding the deal that was allegedly made between the two companies. Following her request, the New York Supreme Court Judge Joel M. Cohen decided that both of the parties should resolve their dispute in a refined argument. He also noted that the NYAG cannot bring its full force of the court against Bitfinex and Tether since both of the companies denied any wrongdoing. The companies even criticized the authorities for the way they handled the case.
