There Is More Manipulation In The Traditional Markets Than Crypto: Binance CEO

The CEO of Binance, Changpeng Zhao, is in the daily crypto news again - this time for his recent statement commenting the manipulation in prices in the traditional and the crypto markets.As CZ stated, there is far more manipulation in the traditional markets rather than the crypto markets. Based on his recent statement, the traditional markets have many public instruments that are traded in a single market. More importantly, they have large market makers that maintain close connections with the media and insiders.The post can be found on CZ's Twitter profile:, this doesn't mean that the crypto markets are flawless. A report issued earlier this year displayed how exchanges such as OKEx, Huobi and many others provide fake reports regarding their daily trading volume.Still, the head of Binance believes that since cryptocurrencies trade in multiple markets, they are more difficult to manipulate. He also knows that price manipulation exists in the crypto world, but also points it out in the traditional markets.As a conclusion that we can draw out from his statement and the general view of the markets, crypto markets are still far less subjected to manipulation than stock markets.

New $230 Million Mt. Gox Sellout Triggers A Downward Trend For Bitcoin

A new sellout by the Tokyo Whale in the Mt. Gox wind-down is apparently what is causing the Bitcoin price to drop lately - and a topic that is present in every portal covering the latest Bitcoin news.The trustee liquidated cryptocurrencies on behalf of the defunct exchange Mt. Gox - offloading another 25.98 billion yen (approx. $230 million) of Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash. The disposals were made in the period since the 10th creditors in a meeting that was held on March 7th, according o Nobuaki Kobayashi said in a statement on Tuesday.Currently, many digital coin investors are following the moves of Kobayashi who is known as the "Tokyo Whale" because of the heap of tokens that he controls. Meanwhile, the Japan-based Mt. Gox which was once the largest Bitcoin exchange, filled for protection from creditors  about 4 years ago.The defunct company later said that it recovered about 200,000 Bitcoins and blamed the Bitcoin hackers for the loss. The latest disposal, however, received an average price of $8,100 per Bitcoin, according to some calculations.As a result, the pricec of Bitcoin fell  by 3% and is currently trading at $6,418.

Crypto Exchange Giant Gemini To Arrive In The UK

In the past several years, the exchange market in Europe wasn’t really as big and diverse as the one in the United States or Japan because of regulation, liquidity, and infrastructure. But, in today’s news, we find out that this is about to change.The major US-based crypto exchange Gemini is in a negotiating process to expand into the European market.Gemini stated:
 “Gemini continues to explore potential jurisdictions around the globe to provide a best-in-class digital asset exchange and custodian which will enable growth and infrastructure to the entire digital asset community. Although we have no immediate plans, we will always evaluate opportunities that allow the global economy to buy, sell, and store digital assets in a regulated, secure and compliant manner.”
Gemini is a very popular exchange that managed to build its reputation throughout the years. It’s now fully compliant with all federal regulations and they are even working harder to establish a better governance and regulation so the entire crypto exchange market will be improved.At the start of the summer this year, Gemini integrated Zcash because of its anonymity features so they can use it in broader aspects of the financial market. With listing Zcash on their platform, they showed the cooperation with regulators while integrating anonymous cryptocurrencies because they were at one point in time, considered to be money laundering tools.This expansion into the UK is very important for the European crypto market because there are no alternative crypto exchanges that handle crypto-to-pound trades apart Coinbase. Coinbase on the other hand, just recently obtained an e-money license from the UK Financial Conduct Authority so Gemini will also have to file for one.

CNBC Analyst Estimates Bitcoin To Go Near $7,000 Based On Market Tacticals

According to one CNBC Futures Now trader named Jim Lurio, the price of Bitcoin will trade above $6,800. Based on his market analysis, Lurio is in the latest Bitcoin news for estimating a low critical support level at $6,000 and potential short-term bullish trend for the flagship cryptocurrency.Lurio first came with these estimates during the trading on the floor of the Chicago Mercantile Exchange (CME), ahead of the latest CBOE bitcoin futures contract. According to him, Bitcoin lacks some fundamentals which need to be there for the price to be based on them - however the use of market tacticals can definitely be a great way to predict its pricing, specifically in a trading technique known as 'stop-in.'When asked about how he intends to trade the Bitcoin futures contract, Lurio confidently said:
“$6,000 is a big deal. I don’t know why it’s a big deal but if you look at the charts, it’s clearly something. Every time it gets there, it gets rejected again. If it trades at $6460, about $60 above where it is now,  we do this technique a lot called the stop in. We wait for a little bit of strength and try to jump in at the right time.”
He also stated that with Bitcoin hovering around $6,500, he would make the call to stop-in with a target of $6,860. Right now, Bitcoin is trading at around $6,612 - which is definitely relatable to Lurio's comments.However, he also said that only if Bitcoin retraces to trade below $6,210, the entire bet would fall apart, leading the biggest cryptocurrency in terms of market cap to again test the $6,000 support level.
