The total turnover of bitcoins has reached record levels
The total turnover of bitcoins has reached record levels Bitcoin is trading near the $48,000 resistance level. Ethereum rose to the level of $3,600, and the price of XRP fell to the support of $1.1. The total capitalization of the crypto assets market amounted to $2.18 trillion.Bitcoin's breakthrough of the key resistance is accompanied by a resumption of the interest of large investors, according to blockchain data. According to IntoTheBlock, the total turnover of bitcoins in transactions over $100,000 has reached a record $ 480 billion. In bitcoin, the volume of large transactions has reached a two-year high. Analysts conclude from this that institutional activity in the bitcoin market is gaining momentum. Although each such transaction by itself does not imply the purchase of bitcoin by institutions, together with the stable growth of the exchange rate since the beginning of August and an increase in the balance of large wallets, they can really indicate a resumption of investor interest. Based on these observations and finding bitcoin above the 200-day moving average, analysts conclude that the path of least resistance lies upwards. Jurgen Schaaf, adviser on the development of market infrastructure and payments at the ECB, said that research on the possibilities of the digital euro does not guarantee its launch at all. In the next two years, the European Central Bank will continue to experiment with the digital euro. However, the final decision on the launch of the Central Bank's digital currency will be made if its advantages outweigh the possible risks. Earlier, ECB analysts concluded that central banks need to launch their own digital currencies as soon as possible, otherwise it will be difficult for them to compete with technology giants. In addition, according to Bison Trails, about 80% of central banks are already studying scenarios for using state-owned stablecoins.The forecast assumes a decline in bitcoin to the levels of 47750, 47500 and 47000 dollars. The cost of Ethereum will decrease to the levels of 3550, 3500 and 3400 dollars, and XRP will reach the price values of 1.09, 1.07 and 1.05 ...

Forex trading. Cryptocurrency forecast for today, September 16, 2021
Forex trading. Cryptocurrency forecast for today, September 16, 2021 The price of bitcoin rose to the level of $48,100. Ethereum reached the $3,500 mark, and XRP reached the price value of $1.12. The total capitalization of the digital currency market has increased to $2.18 trillion.On Tuesday evening, the Ethereum blockchain was attacked. Unknown miners published their own chain of 550 blocks, but the vast majority of nodes rejected them as faulty. Most Ethereum nodes, after determining an incorrect confirmation, rejected alternative blocks. But a small proportion of the nodes on which the Nethermind client is installed switched to a fake chain. However, very soon the length of the main Ethereum chain exceeded the indicator of the alternative one, and customers independently switched to the correct version of the blockchain. At the same time, the hackers were unable to take advantage of the situation in their favor. September 14 was the day of mass attacks and errors in blockchains ― the developers of the Ethereum scaling solution Arbitrum reported about the problems. In addition, the main network of the Solana cryptocurrency did not function for more than 15 hours. The Central Bank of Turkey has begun to develop a platform for testing and subsequent implementation of the digital Turkish lira in the country's existing payment infrastructure. Together with private companies, the Central Bank will work on creating a prototype of a blockchain-based platform, with the help of which research will be conducted on the potential advantages of the digital currency. The Turkish Central Bank announced the completion of testing the proof of concept of the digital lira and the transition to the next stage, which will involve technology partners. If the upcoming testing stage is successful, new participants will be attracted to the platform in the future. In the future, the Central Bank of Turkey plans to conduct tests to determine how effectively the digital lira can be used in payment systems. However, the regulator explained that the final decision on the launch of the state stablecoin has not yet been made, and the results of the initial stage of the pilot project will be known in 2022.The forecast expects a decline in the price of bitcoin to the levels of 48000, 47500 and 47000 dollars. Ethereum will decline to the levels of 3400, 3300 and 3200 dollars, and XRP - to the price values of 1.10, 1.08 and 1.05 ...

Forex trading. Cryptocurrency forecast for today, September 15, 2021
Forex trading. Cryptocurrency forecast for today, September 15, 2021 Bitcoin rose in price to the level of $46,600. The price of Ethereum strengthened to the level of $3375, and the price of XRP reached $1.08. The total capitalization of the digital currency market was $2.11 trillion.Long-term holders continue to increase their share in the total volume of bitcoins amid renewed market volatility. To separate short-term and long-term holders, Glassnode analysts focused on the 155-day mark. In mid-April, bitcoin was trading around $60,000. In other words, coins purchased after the highs are considered as belonging to short-term investors, and before — to long-term investors. The share of bitcoins in the wallets of long-term investors has reached 79.5%. The indicator was at similar levels in October before the start of the uptrend. In absolute terms, the number of coins in the wallets of long-term holders is now the maximum for the entire existence of bitcoin and is 12.97 million. The peaks of the indicator usually correspond to the late stages of the descending market and foreshadow the beginning of an ascending cycle. Two large cryptocurrency networks immediately failed due to malfunctions this Tuesday. Transactions were not added to the Solana network for more than three hours. A similar problem with resources was already observed a week ago. The fixes were included in a new update that the developers did not have time to release before the failures began. Thus, the network should be stabilized after the patch is installed by the validators. While the situation with Solana was being resolved, problems arose in the Arbitrum network used for scaling Ethereum. According to the blockchain browser, the release of blocks also stopped in the Arbitrum network, but the break was only 5 minutes. The developers have confirmed the troubleshooting, but the reasons for what happened are unknown.The forecast assumes a decline in the price of bitcoin to the levels of 46300, 46000 and 45000 dollars. The price of Ethereum will fall to the supports of $3350, $3325 and $3300, and XRP will fall to the levels of $1.06,1.05 and ...

Forex trading. Cryptocurrency forecast for today, September 14, 2021 Bitcoin declined to the level of $44550. Ethereum fell to the level of $3,200, and XRP - to $1.06. The total capitalization of the digital currency market was $2.03 trillion.The Alonzo update was activated in the Cardano project, which for the first time allowed the deployment of Plutus smart contracts in the main network. The Alonzo update will bring long-awaited opportunities due to the integration of scripts into the blockchain. This will allow implementing smart contracts on the network and for the first time using many new scenarios for decentralized applications. At the same time, the developers noted that a lot of time will pass before the mass use of applications. They recalled that the Ethereum blockchain project launched in July 2015, the first application that gained real popularity among users, appeared only after more than two years. Against the background of a successful update, the price of the ADA token fell by more than 10%, from levels around 2.7 to 2.4 dollars. The largest financial holding company in Singapore, DBS Group, will continue to develop trading in crypto assets and plans to double the number of users of the Digital Exchange by the end of the year. The interest of institutional investors in crypto assets continues to grow, and this does not escape the attention of large financial organizations. DBS Digital Exchange is positioned as the only digital exchange in the world supported by banks, offering cryptocurrency trading, asset tokenization and custodial services. In June, DBS Bank issued digital bonds for 15 million Singapore dollars as part of the initial placement of tokens-shares through the Digital Exchange. According to the company's plans, by the end of 2022, at least six share tokens should appear in the exchange's listing, and the number of institutional investors on the site will double-up to 1000 clients. In the next three years, the number of users will grow by 20-30% annually.The forecast expects a further decline in bitcoin to the levels of 44200, 44000 and 43000 dollars. Ethereum will decline to the levels of $ 3150, $ 3100 and $ 3000, and XRP will fall to the price values of $ 1.05, 1.03 and $ ...

How to gift a cryptocurrency
How to gift a cryptocurrency What should I give to a person who has everything? The most obvious solution is money. But a more original option is a cryptocurrency: ether, a share of bitcoin or a meme token. You can get a gift remotely, and watching the growth and fall of the crypt will turn into a new hobby.  We tell you what methods of giving exist and which digital currencies to choose as a gift.ContentTo gift a virtual crypto walletTo gift a cold wallet with cryptocurrencyTo gift a voucher for cryptocurrencyDonate cryptocurrency to charityWhich cryptocurrencies to choose as a giftTo gift a virtual crypto walletIf the recipient of the gift already has a cryptocurrency wallet, the issue is solved: it is enough to find out the account number (or by email address) and transfer the necessary amount from their own crypto wallet to the account. Such operations are absolutely legal — individuals in Belarus can buy, sell, exchange, store and send any cryptocurrencies using crypto wallets, exchanges and exchangers. At the same time, the cryptocurrency received as a gift and the income on it is not taxed until 2023.If a friend does not have an account, then you can create a new account, transfer cryptocurrency there and transfer access to it to the recipient.Many popular crypto wallets, for example, exodus or mycelium, do not require an email address when registering — it is easier to transfer such an account, because it is not tied to your personal data. The role of the access key is performed by a code phrase (a mnemonic phrase, a phrase or a seed) — a set of 12-24 words that must be entered in a certain order to gain access to the wallet. This key must be passed to the recipient — for example, to rewrite the phrase in a greeting card.There are three important nuances in this method of giving cryptocurrency:Don't forget to warn the recipient that the passphrase is extremely important. If the owner loses it, he will lose access to the crypto wallet and will not be able to restore it.You cannot change the passphrase or generate a new one for an existing wallet — the text key always remains unchanged. Therefore, in theory, the donor can use it after a while, which creates risks. The best option is to give a friend a temporary wallet (temporary wallet), from which he will transfer money to a personal account. Whether a friend wants to carry out all these manipulations is another question. And it is better to make sure in advance that a person is interested in the crypto market and trading — otherwise the gift is unlikely to please him.Regional restrictions. Many American and European services are not yet available in Belarus, Russia and Ukraine. For example, Coinbase does not officially work in these countries. Sometimes restrictions can be circumvented using a VPN, but the method does not always work. Therefore, you will have to choose from a limited number of services. In Belarus, it will not be possible to buy cryptocurrency without providing personal data, since crypto exchanges are required to verify each client — and this usually requires a passport scan. By the way, you can use not only wallets, but also exchanges for donation — in this case, you give access to an account that already has tokens stored on its account.Read more: What is Bitcoin Core? A simple guideTo gift a cold wallet with cryptocurrencyA cold wallet is a hardware device for storing crypto currency, which is something like a flash drive. This is the safest, but not the most convenient option. If you forget the password or lose the carrier itself, the cryptocurrency will be lost forever. For example, an American Stefan Thomas forgot the password from a flash drive that stores more than 7000 bitcoins, and lost access to crypto accumulations — and this is not the only case. In total, about $140 billion is stored in bitcoin wallets with forgotten passwords.When donating, the risks are about the same as in the case of an electronic wallet. When registering, you will need to create and remember a PIN code-a code and a phrase for restoring access (a phrase for restoring).You can order a wallet only on large marketplaces: the price for the most popular models (for example, Ledger and Trezor) varies from $60 to $260. It depends on how many different accounts the device allows you to have (for example, the Ledger nano c model supports 5-6 accounts, while the Ledger nano x supports up to 100), whether the device has an information display and a battery, whether it supports Bluetooth, and so on. In any case, such a gift will cost more than a virtual wallet with cryptocurrency.Top hardware wallets for cryptocurrenciesLedger Nano SLedger Nano X TresorTrezor Model T Read more: Crypto wallet: the most important & practical tipsTo gift a voucher for cryptocurrencyA voucher is a kind of gift certificate for the purchase of a crypt. You buy a voucher for a certain amount (for example, 50 euros) and specify the email address of the gift recipient. A special code will be specified in the voucher that will be sent to the post office. The recipient must enter it on the website where the voucher was purchased and specify the wallet address to which the amount in cryptocurrency equivalent to the value of this voucher will be transferred.One of the disadvantages of such a gift is that its recipient will eventually have to deal with the registration of the wallet himself in order to receive cryptocurrency. Also, vouchers are usually available only for the most common cryptocurrencies: Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin. But this is the easiest way to give a cryptocurrency.Where to buy cryptocurrency vouchers:CryptovucherRechargeBit4coinBitnovoCoinsbyDonate cryptocurrency to charityCryptocurrencies can not only be given, but also donated to a charitable foundation. Therefore, if there is a desire to share ether or bitcoin with an NGO or a human rights organization, there are several options:Human Rights FoundationSave the childrenMATTERRainforest FoundationThe Water ProjectTor ProjectAnother option with the support of charity is the creation of an NFT token and its subsequent sale on platforms, for example, Rare. But in this case, you need to create a digital object and find a specialist who knows how to work with NFT platforms. You can attract 500-1000 dollars to Ethereum, even if you do not invest in promotion. And you can transfer the collected money to the fund, if it accepts the crypt, or convert it into fiat and credit it to the organization's account.Read more: What is NFT and why are they worth millions?Which cryptocurrencies to choose as a giftGiving cryptocurrency remotely resembles a long-standing trend in the United States, when people began to give shares of large companies to their loved ones. But the crypto market is not yet so popular among the mass audience. People have heard about it, but they don't quite understand how it works and what principles it works on. With this in mind, even bitcoin is still an unusual and original gift. If you look with an eye to the future, then a good gift option is Ethereum. Another popular project is the Polkado. He has revolutionary prospects and grandiose plans that are being implemented at the same time, which is rare for crypto projects. If a person understands the topic, you can give him an NFT token: for example, a picture or a meme registered as an NFT. But we must be prepared that NFT tokens are very ...

The illusion of money. Top 5 largest cryptocurrency thefts in history
The illusion of money. Top 5 largest cryptocurrency thefts in history The alleged theft of cryptocurrency on the Africrypt platform has become the most expensive in history. Any hacking of the exchange negatively affects the value of the cryptocurrency, but hackers arrange attacks not only for the sake of stealing money. Many thus reduce its course. Fierce competition in the market over time only increases the likelihood of such hacks. We calculated how much the most expensive hacks in history cost investors.Binance: $40 millionHacking Binance — the most popular exchange in 2019 cost 7 thousand bitcoins. At the time of the hack, it cost about $40 million. "We discovered a major security breach today, May 7, 2019, at 17: 15: 24. Hackers managed to obtain a large number of user API keys, 2FA codes and, possibly, other information," the report says.The exchange announced that hackers used various methods, including phishing, viruses and other attacks. "During the hacking, hackers were able to gain access to the "hot" Binance wallet, which, at the time of the attack, had about 2% of the funds. In just 44 transactions, the attackers managed to withdraw 7074 BTC, " said Changpeng Zhao, CEO of the exchange. By "other information", the company meant the theft of personal data of customers, which negatively affected the trust in the platform.The exchange announced that it will cover all the lost funds from its funds, and no user will be affected by this hacking. Binance representatives reported that the losses will be covered at the expense of the previously created SAFU fund (user asset Security fund). Previously, 10% of the platform's commission fees were sent to his address.Nicehash: $80 millionOne of the largest thefts can be called the story of the Slovenian company Nicehash, which occurred in 2017. In fact, Nicehash is not an exchange — it is a cryptocurrency miner with an integrated market. Users leased their computing power to those who mined cryptocurrency without investing in equipment. Hackers could easily get new coins.Nicehash has published an official comment: "It is important to note that our payment system was hacked, and the contents of the NiceHash bitcoin wallet were emptied. We are working to verify the exact number of stolen BTC. It is clear that this is a matter of deep concern, and we are working hard to correct this in the coming days. In addition to conducting our own investigation, the incident was reported to the relevant law enforcement agencies, and we are cooperating with them as a matter of urgency."As a result of the investigation, it turned out that hackers stole 4,700 bitcoins, which is approximately $80 million. The company announced the return of 60% of the stolen coins, and in 2019 it froze the payment program for victims of hacking. NiceHash claimed that it reimburses users for funds received from commissions, thereby reducing the platform's profit, and promised to resume refunds in the future.Mt.Gox: $390 millionAnother Japanese exchange, Mt.Gox, suffered in 2013. At that time, the platform handled 70% of all global bitcoin traffic. For unclear reasons, bitcoins worth about $390 million went missing. It turned out that for two years the hacker stole bitcoins from users ' wallets, but the platform recognized the expenses as deposits and charged some users up to 40 thousand additional bitcoins.After that, the head of the exchange, Mark Karpeles, announced that he was resigning from the board of the Bitcoin Foundation. At the same time, an official document of the administration leaked to the network, which showed the deplorable state of the platform. It followed from the text that unknown attackers stole about 744 thousand bitcoins, and the exchange administration is not able to pay off its users, since the stolen amount is huge. Karpeles was arrested and charged with embezzlement.In February 2014, it declared bankruptcy, when the company's debt reached $63.6 million, and the number of creditors exceeded 127 thousand people. In addition, it turned out that the platform itself was affected - 120 thousand of its own bitcoins were stolen from the exchange. At that time, experts predicted the collapse of the entire cryptosphere, since the theft affected approximately 6% of the issue of all bitcoins in circulation.CoinCheck: $533 millionAnother major hack occurred in CoinCheck - on the leading Japanese cryptocurrency platform. In January 2018, hackers outside the country infected the exchange's internal network with a virus that was transmitted by email. This allowed attackers to steal users ' private keys. As a result, 523 million NEM coins worth $533 million were stolen.This amount was in a cold wallet, which is safer from possible attacks or theft than hot wallets. The company itself has acknowledged problems and failures in the management of the cold portfolio: the theft occurred due to the neglect of the storage of this cryptocurrency. The CoinCheck exchange did not use smart contracts with multiple signatures, so all coins were stored on the same wallet.However, such a large theft did not lead to the collapse of the cryptocurrency market. CoinCheck does not have such a systemic importance as Mt.Gox and other exchanges had at the dawn of the crypto market development. Its total value at the time of the theft was less than 0.25% of the value of the entire cryptocurrency, and the options for buying and selling crypto assets are very different today. The quick reaction of CoinCheck allowed to reassure investors, who were reimbursed in full.Africrypt: $3.6 billionThe founders of the investment platform Africrypt, two brothers Amir and Race Keiji are suspected of stealing about 69 thousand bitcoins, which is equivalent to $3.6 billion at the current exchange rate. In April 2021, they announced that the platform had been hacked and the funds stolen. Users were asked not to contact law enforcement agencies, because, according to Amir, this would make it difficult to return the cryptocurrency.However, the investors did not listen to the advice and turned to the law firm Hanekom Attorneys, which initiated an investigation.
