Following up on our scam crypto news, three weeks after the hack attack, the crypto exchange Zaif announced that the platform has put up a compensation strategy so all of the victims can now be relieved.
The owner of the Japanese crypto exchange Zaif, Tech Bureau, announced that their plan is to sell the entire stake to Fisco Digital Asset Group which is a company that also conducts digital asset trading. This means that the company that buys the entire stake will be responsible for compensating the hack attack victims.
“In the official contract between the Fiscal virtual currency exchange corporation and our company, the contract specifies the former as the successor. Therefore, the contractual relationship between us and the customer will be transferred from our company to the Fiscal Virtual Currency Exchange Co., Ltd,” according to the statement.
The initial plan was for Tech Bureau to sell the majority stake to the FDAG but that plan changed after the bitcoin exchange stopped all registration of new accounts on the platform.
Victims who lost their assets to the security breach will be compensated by Fisco’s holdings. However, those users who lost their monacoins assets will be repaid in the Yen.
The Tech Bureau explained:
“And the compensation amount is “144.548 yen per 1 MONA coin”. This amount was adopted as an intermediate value of the price at Bitfryer Corporation and Bit Bank Corporation at 9:00 am on October 9, 2018. Please note that the exchange rate on this exchange at the same time is 128 yen, and we will compensate more than this amount.”
Tech Bureau plants to shut down the exchange after transferring the business. We are expecting the public announcement on October 22.
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.’’
Pantera Capital CIO: “Bitcoin Will Not Succeed As Money”
"Bitcoin created the ability to send money around the globe cheaply and easily without having to trust a third party," Krug was confident.He also went on to discuss several revolutions in the past, from the information revolution triggered by printing press up to the telegram, telephone, radio, television and finally, the Internet. When asked about finance, Krug believes that the industry has made leaps of progress such as increases in execution speeds, online user interfaces, brokers etc. However, he stated that a financial revolution powered by the blockchain could advance us into a next era where money, value and finance will all be coordinated thanks to crypto.
"This infrastructure will be borderless, cheap, quick, and, most importantly, will let people trade on things they’ve never been able to exchange before, and if markets for those don’t exist yet, it’ll let them create it," Krug concluded.
Scottish Man Sentenced To Prison For Buying Firearms On The Dark Web With BTC
‘’You claim that you had no intention of causing harm to anyone but the fact remains that you went to considerable lengths to get hold of a potentially lethal weapon and ammunition. You must have appreciated that this was unlawful. For this conduct you must be punished.’’This case is only a number in the series of similar cases where bitcoin is used to carry out illegal activities on the dark web.
