Roger Ver, Bitcoin.com owner announced in the latest crypto news that he is considering launching a crypto exchange. This exchange will use Bitcoin Cash as the base currency.
Roger Ver is also popular in the crypto space for his nickname ‘’Bitcoin Jesus’’ because he expressed his support for the number one cryptocurrency in the earliest days. He pointed out:
“If we build it ourselves, we can do it really, really cheap, and we get exactly what we want. But we don’t have the security of a battle-tested exchange that’s been around for a while.”
Ver explained that this is only an idea and it’s still in the early stages because he hasn’t made up his mind whether he wants to build it internally from ground zero or plan b, find an already running platform.
The plan is to set the exchange at Bitcoin.com since it already has a mining pool and a wallet that of course, supports Bitcoin Cash and Bitcoin as well. There was some controversy about Bitcoin.com silently updating the wallet and making Bitcoin cash the default choice and this, according to critics, can be very confusing to new users who will visit the site.
If the exchange is hosted there, Bitcoin.com will provide instant liquidity to the platform because of its popularity. But, it’s still uncertain how will users accept bitcoin cash as a base currency since they are not used to finding it on other exchanges very easily.
There is currently one exchange, according to CoinMarketCap that offers BCH denominated markets but the volumes aren’t really a great sign for trader interest since its relatively low.
Russia Is Not Planning To Buy $10 Billion In Bitcoin
“This statement has no common sense. The Russian Federation — like any other country in the world — is simply not ready to combine its traditional financial system with cryptocurrencies.”Sidorenko reacted to the fake news reports from Telegraph where it was noted that Russia wants to invest $10 billion in bitcoin in order to mitigate the economic impact that is brought up from the US sanctions. The rumors emerged on Twitter where a particular user wrote that Kremlin has no choice but to invest in bitcoin and that it is the only way to avoid the harsh sanctions by President Trump. Ginko posted on Twitter and his post went viral after Telegraph wrote a story about it and lots of other websites just added their own touch to it. Ginko is known to the public for making such shocking tweets and comments after once saying that sham investment adviser Bernie Madoff is the real Satoshi Nakamoto. However, Sidorenko said that Ginko’s comments are absurd:
“Even if Russia wants to place its cryptocurrency assets now, it simply cannot do this. We do not have any mechanisms that would allow us to introduce a system: where these assets would be stored, which authorities would be responsible for it, which would be responsible for abuses and stuff.”However, according to Tota Kaliaskarova, the director of macroeconomic policy with the Eurasian Economic Union says that crypto could have a huge impact on the Eurasian economy.
Market Sees Red, Losing $1 Billion Overnight While Bitcoin Remains At $3,600
Crypto Analysts: 2019 May Be A Year Of Bitcoin Accumulation
“Similar to 2015, 2019 may be the year of accumulation.’’Another crypto researcher Willy Woo said that while a crash of bitcoin to $3,122 could lead to an increase in volume, it won’t show signs of starting of the accumulation period. He pointed out:
‘’Despite the technical setup that suggests bullishness is possible, there’s not a lot on-chain volume to fuel a prolonged up move. What we saw in the last 7 weeks was a spike of on-chain volume driven by volatility, coins moving to exchanges to trade. The initial volume spike false signalled a faster detox and an earlier end to the bear market, but in fact it was a volatility side effect. That move from $6k to $3k created immense trade volume, but it was in no way a signal that accumulation volume had begun.’’Until evidence for the accumulation of crypto assets shows up, there are still expectations of high volatility levels.
Scott Galloway Of UCLA Believes Crypto Will Get Worse In 2019
‘’VR and crypto go from bad to worse. AI fails to live up to the hype. 3D printing rises from the ashes. Smart cameras become a hot category.’’His assessment seems to be accurate but can the crypto market prove to be the odd one out? This can be so since many industries are really committed to the crypto sector. Companies such as Fidelity, ICE, and Nasdaq have funded at least five projects in the crypto space over the past year. Venture capitalist Jim Breyer even said:
“So many of the very best computer scientists and deep learning Ph.D. students and postdocs are working on blockchain because they have so much fundamental interest in what blockchain can mean. You don’t want to bet against the best and brightest in the world.’’
