"If we think about it though, bitcoin wasn't reacting to the [Federal Reserve] at all. It was reacting to the stock market," QuantumEconomics.io founder Mati Greenspan said in his latest newsletter. Cryptocurrency Market Faces Resistance The latest data published by Glassnode shows that the world’s largest cryptocurrency Bitcoin is going through an alarming supply crisis since the start of 2019. Bitcoin’s balance on leading digital exchanges has reached its lowest level in more than 24 months. Finance Magnates earlier reported about Bitcoin’s liquidity issues and large cryptocurrency transactions. The supply shortage is not the only issue the cryptocurrency market is facing right now, a significant jump in transaction fees of leading digital assets including Ethereum is a major problem as well. Crypto Fever Back in South Korea A new report from South Korea shows that the latest rush in bitcoin (BTC) and altcoin investment in the country. It is “now higher than three years ago,” and that it’s not all about the new wave of Korean “crypto moms” – younger folk are also laying down some serious capital in their investments. Crypto “fever,” as the South Korean media termed it at the time, came to a boil in late 2017 and early 2018, with teenagers and octogenarians alike forking out their pocket money and pensions on tokens – before a market slump and the introduction of a series of tight regulations. John McAfee and His Adviser Indicted in New Crypto Fraud Case US authorities are accusing McAfee and his executive adviser of promoting seven initial coin offerings (ICOs) without disclosing that they were paid to do this. The CFTC also said McAfee was contracted by ICO projects to promote the sale on his social media channels, particularly leveraging his Twitter fame. While he received more than $13 million in private compensation for touting unlicensed tokens, the Silicon Valley legend never disclosed to the regulators that he pocketed nearly half of the funds these ICOs had raised in exchange for his promotional deals. Cipher Mining to Go Public via $2 Billion Deal Cipher Mining Technologies said on Friday it has agreed to go public through a merger with blank-check firm Good Works Acquisition Corp., giving the cryptocurrency miner an enterprise value of $2.0 billion. The combined company will receive $595 million in cash, which includes $170 million held in Good Works’ trust account from its IPO that occurred in October 2020. The cash amount, which will be used to fund the build out of Cipher’s mining facilities, also includes $425 million from investors including Fidelity and Morgan Stanley. MicroStrategy MicroStrategy announced on Friday it bought just over $10 million worth of additional bitcoins, just days after finalizing another purchase of more than $15 million. The company’s share price, however, shed by more than 11 percent in today’s trades as of writing. Check for the latest Bitcoin and Ethereum valuation at https://www.ci-ex.com/en_US/.

It is now consolidating above USD 47,300, with a major hurdle near USD 48,000. If there is no recovery above the USD 48,000 resistance, there is a risk of more downsides. The first key support is near USD 46,200, below which the price could test USD 45,000. Ethereum  Ethereum price also followed bitcoin and traded below the critical USD 1,550 support zone. ETH even dived below USD 1,500 and tested the USD 1,450 support. It is struggling to climb above USD 1,500 and it seems like the bears are aiming for a test of USD 1,400. On the other hand, the bulls might struggle to push the price above USD 1,500. The key resistance is now forming near the USD 1,550 level.

Morris says if no action is taken, “the selling pressure will build” and “could morph into a systemic risk.”  Thailand’s central bank has declared a stablecoin pegged to the Thai Baht illegal, citing violation of the country’s currency law. The Bank of Thailand (BOT) is currently working on a regulatory framework for stablecoins.  Citibank’s David Bailin believes that bitcoin will do well because of the level of interest from investors. While stating that the cryptocurrency can be part of a portfolio, the executive sees better investment opportunities than bitcoin in “giant unstoppable trends.” A German man has shared his story about how he fell for the Elon Musk bitcoin giveaway scam.

Crypto Market Revolutionized Financial Freedom

Crypto Market Revolutionized Financial Freedom

ON CRYPTO NEWS BTC  https://cryptonewsbtc.org/2021/03/31/centurion-invest-launches-shark-trading-fund-offering-up-to-60-roi/ Cryptocurrency has been around since 2009. Over these past couple of years, crypto has become a new sensation in the trade market. Today, you find more than 50% of the traders are investing in Cryptocurrency in one way or another. The typical financial system does allow us to reach financial freedom. However, it takes decades of compound interest and consistent saving and investing. Of course, that is a great strategy and one we should all try to implement. However, crypto and De-Fi allow us to accelerate this process rapidly.   Cryptocurrency has many pros over the traditional fiat currency, and millions of people believe crypto is the new way to financial freedom. How is cryptocurrency enabling financial freedom? Traditional fiat currency fails to stand up to people's expectations. Cryptocurrency is a decentralized currency; hence, nothing affects its performance. This nature of the Cryptocurrency has made people believe that there is a possibility to gain financial freedom with Cryptocurrency investment. So, the first enormous benefit of building wealth in crypto is avoiding inflation. The most obvious and most powerful advantage is the incredible value appreciation crypto is achieving. While an excellent annual return in the legacy finance world is anything above 10% a year, a good return is your value doubling multiple times per year in crypto. Even if your money doubles once per year, that is unheard of outside of crypto.  Even with minimal starting funds today, you can have enough to reach financial independence in under a decade. If you make smart moves, are constantly adding to your stockpile, and use strategies, you can make it even faster! Many people in the community who started small have become financially free in a matter of years instead of decades. It is still early in this space, and opportunity remains abundant. What are the possible ways to invest in the cryptocurrency? There are several ways to invest in Cryptocurrency. Buying and Holding Cryptocurrency The Cryptocurrency is known for its volatility. And among all the assets in the trade market, Cryptocurrency has high volatility. When the first Cryptocurrency, Bitcoin, was launched in 2009, you could have easily bought 10 BTC for $1, but at the time of writing, the Bitcoin price evaluation was $57,000. Day Trading You can even use Cryptocurrency for daily exchanges. If you think you can read the market quite well, you can use your skill in the daily trading market by exchanging Cryptocurrency with the other traders.  Price Prediction Price prediction of the Cryptocurrency is a good substitute for day trading. In the trading market, there are chances that you might lose all your capital in one deal. However, with the price prediction method's help, you can earn money just by predicting the prices of the Cryptocurrency.  Follow our Telegram Group and Centurion Invest Twitter Account How Can You Start Using Your CI Wallet to Trade on CEIx?  Send Us an Email at [email protected]  At the time of writing (1:00 PM GMT), BTC PRICE USD 57,800 Source https://www.ci-ex.com/en_US/trade/BTC_USD Disclaimer: The information presented in this article is for educational purposes only.

In a ruling made one day after the motion was filed, the judge, Analisa Torres denied the token holders’ request “without prejudice to renewal.” Per the Korea Herald, the National Tax Service of South Korea (NTS) identified 2,416 individuals who reportedly hid their assets in cryptos to bypass taxation. The agency stated that evaders used bitcoin (BTC), ethereum (ETH), ripple (XRP), among other cryptos, to avoid being scrutinized by the tax authorities. The crypto economy is on the cutting edge of both finance and technology, which means that you need to be ever vigilant in protecting your digital assets. A critical component of doing so is using a hardware wallet from a company you can trust, like Ledger, to securely store your private keys. Hedge fund manager Bob Prince has warned that the recent sell-off in the U.S. government bond market could accelerate and this could “threaten high-flying assets” like cryptocurrencies and blank cheque companies. Prince, who is the co-CIO at Bridgewater Associates, links this looming downturn in the $21 trillion Treasury market to the improving economy as well, as growing inflation pressurizes.

Glassnode analyst, Rafael Schultze-Kraft, explains the difference between long-term holders and short-term holders in order to analyze the behaviors of these types of investors. A new study, which was undertaken by the Slovakian internet security company Eset, finds 50% of 35 to 44-year-olds have become involved in cryptocurrencies since the pandemic. The figure, the highest for any age group, underscores the role Covid-19 restrictions had in forcing citizens from six countries into embracing crypto assets. As the Polkadot project enters the final phase of a strategic rollout that’s been orchestrated over the last year, prominent stakeholders Moonbeam, Acala and Centrifuge shed a light on the future of the ecosystem and how the blockchain’s infrastructure will deliver its advantages for users.

If the bulls can now drive the price above $46.80, the DOT/USDT pair could resume the uptrend and rally to the target objective at $53.50. This positive view will invalidate if the price turns down and breaks below the moving averages. Analyst: Bitcoin Is at the “$3-5K Stage” Of 2021 Bull Run Bitcoin may be struggling for new support, but hodlers need to zoom out for the real picture. For popular Twitter analyst William Clemente, however, there was little reason to be bearish on longer timeframes, which have the support of a tranche of positive on-chain data. “This Bitcoin Bull Run is still far from overheated on multiple on-chain indicators,” he summarized. Clemente uploaded a comparative chart showing Bitcoin’s 2013 and 2017 price tops via the Puell Multiple, a classic metric that continues to signal that there is room for growth before a profit-taking sell-off can begin.

Cryptocurrency Trading: How to Start?

Cryptocurrency Trading: How to Start?

ON CRYPTO NEWS BTC  https://cryptonewsbtc.org/2021/03/31/centurion-invest-launches-shark-trading-fund-offering-up-to-60-roi/ You have finally decided to start your cryptocurrency trading career, and you are already thinking about how you are going to spend the millions of dollars of profit you will make.  Cryptocurrency is a super exciting market for investors, and you need to make an effort to guarantee your success. Yes, cryptocurrency trading can be a risky business. Yes, it is true — some people make lots of money, and some others lose lots of money. We are to help you get started. This beginners guide is going to show you everything you need to know. Have you heard about Short-term trading? Short-term trading is where you buy a cryptocurrency but only plan to hold on to it for a short amount of time. You buy a cryptocurrency because you think it will rise in price in the short term. You would then sell it for a quick profit if you thought the price was going to drop again. Quick and fast. What are the advantages of short-term trading? It is a perfect opportunity to make high percentage gains.  Now that cryptocurrencies are so popular, there are thousands of different cryptocurrencies to trade. This means one thing; more opportunities to make huge profits. Not only that, though, but there are large trading volumes for lots of coins. Did you know that large trading volumes are important as it means you will always find a buyer or seller? A high amount of currency is flowing in and out of that cryptocurrency. However, do not think short-term trading is all just about profit and more profit.  As the cryptocurrency markets are so volatile, the prices can change very quickly.  This means that if you want to perform short-term crypto trading, you will need to spend a lot of time analysing the markets. One thing you will learn when short-term trading is that you do not always win. So, you have to keep your emotions in control. It can be very stressful when prices move differently from how you had hoped. Learning to accept losses is a big part of cryptocurrency trading.  Short-term cryptocurrency traders look for small gains in small price movements, and you need an excellent analytical ability. This means being able to read trading charts and graphs. As a beginner, focus your energy on learning and understanding. Something to keep in mind as a beginner. When you short trade and want to see good returns, you must make quite a significant investment. Which is something that most of you beginners might not feel comfortable with.

READ MORE https://cryptonewsbtc.org/2021/03/31/centurion-invest-launches-shark-trading-fund-offering-up-to-60-roi/ Historically, April has been a strong month for Bitcoin throughout the past ten years, recording positive gains for five consecutive years since 2016. In the near term, whether Bitcoin remains above the $58,000 support area remains vital. If it continues to consolidate above it, its chances of seeing a solid breakout above the $60,000 resistance level dramatically increase. Source: Cointelegraph The U.S. dollar is starting to weaken once again as sellers are pushing the U.S. Dollar Index (DXY) downward, which could strengthen the momentum of Bitcoin (BTC) in the near term. When the DXY starts to drop, it often causes BTC to rally against the Dollar. Alternative assets like Bitcoin and gold are priced against the Dollar. According to Holger Zschaepitz, a market analyst at Welt, the U.S. dollar's share of global reserves is rapidly declining as countries like Russia pursue a de-dollarization strategy and opt for gold. Zschaepitz said: "OOPS! Dollar in decline. While the Dollar's share of global reserves initially increased at the start of the pandemic, it has since decreased & now stood at just 59%—1.5pp decline QoQ & lowest since 1995. Part of decline due to depreciation, but also due to active USD selling." If the decline of the U.S. dollar continues, there is a strong probability that Bitcoin will continue to rally in April. Atop the favorable macro factors for Bitcoin, Lex Moskoviski, the CIO at Moskoviski Capital, pinpointed that miners recently began ramping up their BTC holdings. A single day, miners added 4,380 Bitcoin, which the quantitative trader and investor described as a growing trend. He said: "Miners started ramping up their positions. 4,494 #Bitcoin stacked today on aggregate. Another 4,380 #Bitcoin stacked by miners yesterday. Looks like a trend, indeed." Source: Glassnode When miners sell their holdings, Bitcoin typically sees a pullback as it can cause heavily leveraged orders in the futures market to see cascading liquidations. If miners are hoarding Bitcoin and stacking BTC with the expectations that the cryptocurrency will appreciate, it reduces the probability of a severe sell-off in the foreseeable future.

The Benefits of Cryptocurrency Trading

The Benefits of Cryptocurrency Trading

The Benefits of Cryptocurrency Trading ON CRYPTO NEWS BTC https://cryptonewsbtc.org/2021/03/31/centurion-invest-launches-shark-trading-fund-offering-up-to-60-roi/ Suppose you are looking to get involved in the cryptocurrency market. In that case, this involvesbuying and selling the underlying coins via an exchange and speculating on price movements. Here you will find more information about cryptocurrency trading, how it works and what moves the markets. Please look at some of the benefits of trading and discover why it has become a popular alternative to buying coins outright. Why trade cryptocurrencies? When you trade cryptocurrencies, you speculate on whether your chosen market will rise or fall in value without taking ownership of the digital asset. Cryptocurrencies are relatively new, and they can change the way that the world works significantly. Early investors or speculators in successful disruptive technologies often make spectacular returns, and over the medium or long term, even small investments can grow into significant, life-changing profits. Investing in cryptocurrencies is buying some cryptocurrency and holding it for months or years. Cryptocurrency trading is a more active transaction. Cryptocurrency Volatility Although the cryptocurrency market is relatively new, it has experienced significant volatility due to vast amounts of short-term speculative interest. The volatility of cryptocurrencies is part of what makes this market so exciting. The top ten cryptocurrencies, including Bitcoin and Ethereum, fluctuate in value dramatically because they are subject to substantial short-term speculative interest. Any asset which rises in value by a significant amount is statistically likely to either continue to rise or fall by a similar amount soon because of volatility "clusters." Cryptocurrency Market Hours The cryptocurrency market is generally available to trade 24 hours a day, seven days a week, because there is no centralized market governance. Cryptocurrency transactions take place directly between individuals on cryptocurrency exchanges all over the world. Volume and Accessibility The second reason you should be interested in the more significant cryptocurrencies is that some, including BTC and ETH, hit several all-time highs this year. Historical research shows that when new companies' stocks make significant new all-time high prices, they usually keep going up higher and higher. This can give a trader a winning statistical edge and serve as an indicator of how to trade Bitcoin and other major cryptocurrencies. Ability to Go Long or Short When you buy a cryptocurrency, you are purchasing the asset upfront, hoping to increase in value. But when you trade on price, you can take advantage of markets that are falling in price, as well as rising. This is known as going short. Faster Account Opening When you buy cryptocurrencies, you will need to buy and sell via an exchange, which requires you to create an exchange account and store the cryptocurrency in your digital wallet.

How to Become a Young Crypto Millionaire “Erik Finman Style”

How to Become a Young Crypto Millionaire “Erik Finman Style”

ON CRYPTO NEWS BTC  https://cryptonewsbtc.org/2021/03/31/centurion-invest-launches-shark-trading-fund-offering-up-to-60-roi/ So, ready to become a Bitcoin millionaire yet? The process is quite simple. Investing in cryptocurrency significantly more straightforward than the stock market and can yield great returns on small investments. Within a week, you should learn the basics down, and it is a matter of researching the best cryptocurrency to invest in.  Do not just follow the hype, do your research.  To start, here is what you need: Buy Bitcoin When trading on CIEx, you will be using Bitcoin to buy and sell altcoins (any coin that is not Bitcoin). A single Bitcoin can be expensive, but you do not need to buy a whole one. You can purchase Bitcoin depending on your budget.  Open the feature that allows you to purchase your Bitcoin directly on the site to start trading immediately. This is by far the easiest way to have your Bitcoin ready and available for trading within a few minutes. Once you have your Bitcoin, it is time to join a cryptocurrency exchange market. Cryptocurrency Exchange Market CIEx is easy to use, has impressive functionality, and does not require much information for verification. To eventually become a bitcoin millionaire, you’ll definitely need to sign up to CIEx. Buying and Selling on an Exchange The idea is simple – use BTC to buy other coins (altcoins) at a low price and sell them back into BTC at a high price. In practice, it will take some time before you get the hang of how the market works and how rumors and news articles can have a massive impact on the rise and fall of altcoin prices.  Hold a Digital Asset The next best method is to buy a digital asset to hold it over a long time (hodling). If you had bought Bitcoin in 2015 when it traded at around $200, you would currently be enjoying 180x your initial investment. A great example is 21-year-old Erik Finman. At the age of 12 in 2011, he received a gift of $1,000 from his grandmother. Instead of saving the money for college, Finman bought $1,000 worth of bitcoin when valued at about $10 – $12. He reportedly owned 446 BTC and was worth $4.5 million as of August 2019. When you trust in a coin, keep it for the long term. You will make mistakes. You will sell when you should have held – this is all part of the learning curve. You cannot win if you’re not in the game.  Follow our Telegram Group and Centurion Invest Twitter Account How Can You Start Using Your CI Wallet to Trade on CEIx?  Send Us an Email at [email protected]  At the time of writing (4:00 PM GMT), BTC PRICE USD 59,300 Source https://www.ci-ex.com/en_US/trade/BTC_USD Disclaimer: The information presented in this article is for educational purposes only.

It seems a new ‘bitcoin is bad for the environment’ editorial is published nearly every week by mainstream journalists, tech authors, and climate activists. This week a representative from the crypto company and dedicated mining operation, Bixen explained that it is wrong to assume that bitcoin mining is unsustainable to the global environment. Tim Bond, a portfolio manager at Odey Asset Management, has warned that bitcoin is pointless, calling the cryptocurrency “a particularly vile asset class.” He claims that bitcoin has no real social utility other than as a tool for speculation and a means to launder the proceeds of crime.

Ethereum has passed many milestones over the last 12-months and can be credited as the protocol responsible for popularizing the defi revolution thanks to its smart contract capabilities.

Blockchain was recently included in the country’s latest five-year plan, the clearest plan yet that the government intends to prioritize its development. But the private sector has already stolen a march on recruitment, with major companies offering higher salaries for experienced experts and a plethora of startups entering the fray. Could Ethereum Surpass Bitcoin ?  Ryan Watkins, an analyst at cryptocurrency research firm Messari, believes Ethereum could surpass Bitcoin  to become the most valuable cryptocurrency. In a recent interview on Youtube with Fintech Today, Watkins said that the shift towards Ethereum 2.0 would bring about some changes in the coin’s monetary policy, which could lead to Ether (ETH) taking over as the leading cryptocurrency in the future. According to Watkins, Bitcoin’s unique selling point as a “store of value” asset is the fact that its monetary policy is very predictable. “I think that the shift to Ethereum 2.0 and proof of stake, which is kind of like a new way of securing the Ethereum blockchain....Ethereum may actually be more secure than Bitcoin”, he said. Watkins pointed out that the new monetary policy brought about by Ethereum 2.0 would lead to ETH being a deflationary asset, as more of the token’s supply is burned every year.

Trading Basics: More Tips to Keep It Simple

Trading Basics: More Tips to Keep It Simple

Last Friday, Centurion Experts discussed how to enter the cryptocurrencies arena, future trading and making a profit via trading on Centurion Exchange. In case you missed it, here it the link  https://fb.watch/4cAKpvzr-u/. To Keep It Simple: Investing and Trading Tips & Tricks If you plan to be in crypto for the long term, you should start building an average position. The best way to avoid making a poorly timed trade is to buy assets incrementally at their "average" price over time. Without a solid understanding of technical indicators, consider averaging out of positions to make the volatile crypto markets work for you. Averaging is not just financially conservative. It is important psychologically. Taking too big of a position in one go is emotionally challenging to deal with. furthermore, it can lead to bad decision-making given the cryptocurrency market's historical volatility. Instead of buying or selling everything in one chunk, set incremental buy and sell orders to buy when the price goes down and sell when the price goes up. Consider laddering. Laddering and averaging can help you to time the complex and volatile cryptocurrency market. Learn about position sizing and risk management. To the above point, you generally take a much more significant risk with bigger bets. Learn how to make the right size buys and sells to avoid losing too much on a foul play. The market never sleeps. Remember, Cryptocurrency is a 24/7 Global Market. You can start considering automating your investing strategy using limit orders, stops, or even using APIs (via "trading bots "). Look at the price trend. If it is at the highest point in the past 24 hours (days, weeks, etc.), that is inherently riskier than buying at a short-term low. It can make sense to buy as the price starts to break out (to "buy into strength"). Buying after a breakout at a new high while filled with excitement is a little irrational.  "Buy the dips" and often "the best time to buy is when there's blood in the streets… even if it is your own." The worst time to buy is often right after the price has shot up and everyone is manic. If you buy high, and it ends up dropping shortly after, consider "HODLing" (Hold on for Dear Life as the price goes down). Buying the dips and holding can be dangerous in a bear market, and it puts pressure on you to sell low if you overextend.  Sometimes it can be wise to sell for a loss or buy when the price is at a local high but knowing when this is the case requires a relatively high skill level. Knowing when to take a loss is hard. Buying the dips and holding is easy. The dips will happen; you must be patient and ward off FOMO.  How Can You Start Using Your CI Wallet to Trade on CEIx?  Send Us an Email at [email protected]  At the time of writing (6:50 PM GMT), BTC PRICE USD 55,300 Source https://www.ci-ex.com/en_US/trade/BTC_USD Disclaimer: The information presented in this article is for educational purposes only.

Do your research about “the cryptocurrency rotation” and “market cycles.” You need to be in a coin before starting its rotation and then laddering out as its rotation ends. Equally, you want to be in for the bull part of a market cycle and out for the bear part. When you start out, you will find it difficult to spot these trends in advance, but the more experienced you become, you can manage your positions accordingly. Consider diversifying your portfolio. If you have some of your funds in all the coins you trade, you will avoid missing out on a unicorn (a term one can use to describe an odd event, like a giant price spike in a short amount of time). There is nothing worse than getting frustrated, switching between coins, then missing a price spike. This can happen given the rotation and the “FOMO buy. If you diversify, especially when prices are low across the board, you will avoid some of the urge to jump into one coin mid or late into a run and out of a coin just before it goes on its run.  If you know how to read a chart, you can better understand how things like candles, moving averages, RSI, and the order book can help you buy and sell. Learning technical analysis is vital. Technical Analysis (TA) analyses price and volume data and tries to predict future trends based on that. Crypto defies logic all the time, but basic indicators are still helpful to understand. If you do not feel confident at TA, follow someone who is.   If you see many sell orders at a specific price and want to sell, you may aim to sell under that price. Watching the order book on the exchange can give you a good sense of what buy/sell orders are “on the books”—in other words, sitting on the market waiting to be bought or sold. If you are waiting for the price to drop to buy, look at the distribution of other people’s buy orders. Just watch out for artificial buy walls and sell walls. You will almost always find buy walls and sell walls at support and resistance levels. If you want to ensure you are happy no matter which direction the winds blow, then be prepared for whatever comes next. If you have some coins you hold, some coins you trade daily or weekly, some money set aside for a dip, and some high-ball and low-ball orders set, then you stand to benefit regardless of what happens. It can be tempting to cash out or go all in, but both of those can be disappointing if the market goes in the opposite direction you were hoping for. Diversifying your strategy and holdings eats into profits but offers flexibility. It is a trade-off. Keep in mind that it is not always the most profitable move to run a strategy like this, but it can help you gain experience and have something to be excited about.  How Can You Start Using Your CI Wallet to Trade on CEIx?  Send Us an Email at [email protected]  At the time of writing (12:00 PM GMT), BTC PRICE USD 58,800 Source https://www.ci-ex.com/en_US/trade/BTC_USD Disclaimer: The information presented in this article is for educational purposes only.

Trading Basics: In Crypto, Significant Changes Can Happen Quickly

Trading Basics: In Crypto, Significant Changes Can Happen Quickly

Centurion Experts discuss how to enter the cryptocurrencies arena, future trading and making a profit via trading on Centurion Exchange. Watch the full show here https://fb.watch/4cAKpvzr-u/. To Keep It Simple: Investing and Trading Tips & Tricks Compared to your total investable funds, the smaller your bet is, the less risk you are taking on every bet. Use small buy-ins, and do not margin trade or short unless you know your stuff. There is an art to learning to manage your buy-in size. As a rule of thumb, you can start investing 1% or less per buy-in. Losing 1% of 100% leaves you with 99%. Small bids offer the same bet less risk. Start focusing on risk management and capital preservation until you feel you have enough experience. Margin or short trade only when you know what you are doing.  It is easy to get too stressed when a coin value drops by a small percent only. Do not zoom in too much on the price trends of the moment; let the small things flow over you. The slight movements matter if you are day-trading large amounts of coin relative to your total investable funds. Take a break and look at trends over more significant periods. When a coin's value drops by 1%, but it still shows an overall 100% value increase during several months, the slight daily fluctuation is nearly insignificant. Focus on the long-term trajectory of crypto and daily candles. Not every hour. If you are zoomed in too much, you can miss more vital market indicators.  In crypto, significant changes can happen quickly. What happens during bearish stock trading does not work in crypto. Stocks move much slower than cryptos. If a coin is not performing well, it is not a wiser option to sell and jump into another one that is doing well. A bearish coin can make a turnaround at any support level or based on some good news or rumours and make 100% gains in a matter of hours. If you are not trading frequently, you can start slowly building a position in a coin that is not doing well but that you think is a good long-term bet. If you invest your time understanding technical analysis, you can ladder out when all the short-term averages have fully crossed under the long term and in when they have crossed over. You have to build a position low and hold until highs while practicing risk management. Only sell losers if you have a logical reason and trust yourself to buy back in. If not, focus on building average positions. Many coins did not make it to 2021 that were once highly valued and popular. It is a fact that coins can go to zero. Even good coins can lose up to 80%+ of their value. Some strong contenders of today like ETH and XRP have seen their value in BTC prices drop to depressing levels. Prepare yourself for this mentally and have a strategy that factors this in.   The crypto market changes moods, and some strategies are better than others in a given market. React to the market but pick a strategy and stick with it. Over time, you will start to evolve your strategy as the market changes. Sometimes it can be tempting to change your strategy to adjust to the current market. For example, one day, you wake up to a bearish and trading in a tight range day. However, a sudden day change can get you in real trouble if you don't act carefully. If you switch from long to short, commit yourself to buy back in upon a certain event occurring. There are endless stories about traders regretting " not buying back." Do not be one of them.  How Can You Start Using Your CI Wallet to Trade on CEIx?  Send Us an Email at [email protected]  At the time of writing (2:30 PM GMT), BTC PRICE USD 59,400 Source www.ci-ex.com/en_US/trade/BTC_USD Disclaimer: The information presented in this article is for educational purposes only.

Crypto Can Be the Solution Towards Financial Freedom

ON CRYPTO NEWS BTC  https://cryptonewsbtc.org/2021/03/31/centurion-invest-launches-shark-trading-fund-offering-up-to-60-roi/ A new generation of investors is warmly welcoming crypto investing as a tool for financial freedom. With easy access to technology, crypto markets today provide a crucial step in democratizing wealth. Over the last year, cryptocurrencies have become extremely popular, reshaping how investors and traders interact with financial instruments. A significant benefit of decentralization is putting power back in the hands of users. Cryptocurrencies such as bitcoin were designed as a decentralized alternative to traditional finance and therefore did not have a single point of failure, making them more resilient, efficient and democratic. Charles Hoskinson, the co-founder of Ethereum and current chief executive of crypto and blockchain company IOHK, explained, “Our industry’s technology is about brokering trust among people who don’t trust each other,” he says. The crypto market has robust tools in empowering investors to take wealth-building into their own hands. Without an intermediary, they can exchange on a virtual market with security assurance through a blockchain.  Charles Hoskinson, the co-founder of Ethereum and current chief executive of crypto and blockchain company IOHK, explains how cryptocurrencies have a unique advantage. “Our industry’s technology is about brokering trust among people who don’t trust each other,” he says. As the finance industry evolves, new investors should consider investing in cryptos.  Cryptomarkets need to consider how to build trust among new entrants. Regulatory bodies providing further understanding of how investments are protected will enable the market to develop further. Abdul Haseeb Basit, a board member of Global Digital Finance, said, “We must ensure the industry does a better job of embedding investor protection through high consumer conduct standards,” he says. As the future of investing is changing, so are investors.  And this is only the beginning. Opportunities for significant accumulation of wealth emerge during times of crisis. Identify it. Brace it.

Centurion Invest has launched CIwallet a digital banking solution and CIEx: Crypto Exchange & Trading Platform ! Watch the full show here https://youtu.be/1hJinsNtBjM To Keep It Simple: Investing and Trading Tips & Tricks As you start getting into the trading game, you will realize that a diverse portfolio and investment strategy will eat into gains as often as it staves off losses. The only way to make big profits most of the time is to make risky moves. Provided, of course, you know what you are doing. If you go all-in on a single coin at a given price and it goes up, that is a brilliant move for you. If it goes down, your investable funds are locked into that crypto. Unless you decide you want, or you need to sell at a loss. Diverse strategies protect against this, but they will also eat into your potential gains. Sometimes the market will go crazy, and you see gains, and you get FOMO. You must control the fear of missing out and be wary of panic buying and selling. Have a strategy and stick with it. The crypto market can dump hard, which could open you up to the pressure to sell in a panic. Selling or buying at times like those may make sense, but do not get nervous. If you are tempted to change your whole strategy, think about it first. Emotions can fool us into making wrong moves.  You must be extremely careful about anything that promises free coins, huge returns, or wants you to lend your coins. There are a few different scams in the crypto world, so watch out for them. Anything that is not buying a coin with a good reputation is a significant risk. Buy the top coins using a careful strategy and ignore all the sites promising you they can outperform the market if only you do what these sites are telling you.  First and foremost, you want to protect your privacy. Never download random wallets or click on random links. Accept that you have to share information with exchanges you want to use. There is some malware out there, and you need to do research and be careful. Be careful and do your research first. Share only what you must and download apps as and when needed. People on social media will constantly try to sell your magic solutions, scare you into selling your coin or opt for a different strategy. Ignore the noise, do your research, and listen to the pros. Listening to people who are not seasoned pros will only take you sideways as they have their own agenda. You are responsible for your own trades and investments.  How Can You Start Using Your CI Wallet to Trade on CEIx?  Send Us an Email at [email protected]  At the time of writing (3:30 PM GMT), BTC PRICE USD 57,400 Source https://www.ci-ex.com/en_US/trade/BTC_USD Disclaimer: The information presented in this article is for educational purposes only.

2 March 2021 5:30 GMT: MARKET DIRECTION BEARISH -4.54%

MARKET CAP $1,55T 24H Vol 183.12 B MARKET DIRECTION BEARISH -4.54% The price of Bitcoin is outpacing the popular Stock-to-Flow (S2F) model, which predicts that the BTC price will eventually reach $200,000. According to the S2F multiple, the price of Bitcoin should be hovering at around $36,851 in order for the S2F model to be on track. Due to the recent bull cycle and Bitcoin's strong momentum, BTC/USD is now well above the S2F estimate at around $49,000. The accuracy of the S2F model to date suggests that the market is recognizing the value of Bitcoin based on its scarcity and growing demand. Bitcoin could still see major corrections in price, as it did many times during the current and past bull cycles. But the S2F model will still be on track as long as BTC/USD remains within its range of short-term deviations. LATEST NEWS Goldman Sachs is also reportedly exploring the potential for a bitcoin ETF and planning to provide a crypto custody service. China's Inner Mongolia plans to shut down all cryptocurrency mining activities in the region by April 2021, as part of efforts to improve energy efficiency.

Cryptocurrency Trading Guide for 2021: Day Trading and Scalping

Cryptocurrency Trading Guide for 2021: Day Trading and Scalping

A crypto day trading strategy helps you to take advantage of cryptocurrency assets' price volatility. Virtual assets are currently volatile that can work to your advantage if you do daily trading. The day trading strategy is a game of numbers. You can make multiple trades within a day. You buy low and sell high within little gains that compound to a considerable amount by the end of the day. To succeed in this strategy, you have to learn about automating your trades using trading applications or crypto trading bots.  Please note: This strategy is a fast-paced one, and it will require that you make fast decisions. You will not have much time to research your trades.  Scalping Scalping (a trading strategy in which traders profit off small price changes) is a part of day trading but typically involves brief trading periods. Think minutes. When either day trading or scalping, many trades will result in both wins and losses. The idea is to make sure that the win/loss ratio is in your favour. Scoring more wins guarantees success. Swing trading When it comes to swing trading, the time varies. In swing trading, opening and closing positions multiple times within a day happen within a much longer period. This could be anything from a few days to a few months. A crypto swing trader will aim to take advantage of an incoming or ongoing trend. In crypto, this strategy is referred to as "buying the f'n dip" (BTFD). This means buying when the price is low and selling when the price is high. Position trading (HODL) Also called trend trading or following the trend. This strategy involves long-term investing in assets. A trader/investor typically buys or invests in an asset when the price is low and sells when the price is high. The only difference is the long periods between opening and closing a position. Trades through this strategy could take months and sometimes years. It is an ideal strategy for investors favouring a more hands-off approach. This strategy is called Hold On for Dear Fife or 'HODL' in cryptocurrency. It is to buy and hold. A crypto trader, 'Hodler,' invests in a coin or token and holds it even when the prices are plummeting.  Margin trading (trading with leverage) Margin trading is rather a trading method. Adopting from the traditional stock market involves a trader using borrowed capital to open positions on a trading platform. The results from trading on margin are greatly amplified to either direction of the trading position. If you score a win, the reward is much larger, and the reverse is also true. If the trade goes sideways, you even lose a lot more. When you trade cryptocurrencies with margin, you will come across the following standard terms: margin, leverage, and liquidation.  Margin is the amount of capital you stake in a position.  Leverage is the amount of capital you borrow to open a larger position. Liquidation is the price at which a trade is automatically closed when the price moves against your position.  Do You Have A Question?

Crypto Bear Market: How to Make Money When Prices Are Down

Crypto Bear Market: How to Make Money When Prices Are Down

Centurion Invest. Maximizing the Potentials of Blockchain And Cryptocurrency Watch the full show here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wHFGKiK_ils&feature=youtu.be Just a couple of years ago, the crypto market was all doom and gloom. Once the 2017 ICO bubble burst, the market shifted into a bearish downward trend, and the crypto market entered a difficult period that lasted almost two years. But since last year, the crypto market cap has quadrupled, reaching $1.85T at its highest.  And as markets usually work in cycles, the current price rally is bound to reverse at some point and correct. While many inexperienced traders might think that "Should I just take a step back and wait it out once this happens"? Bear markets are a perfect time to start stocking up on Bitcoin before the market shifts into a bullish trend.  What can you do to make profits when the market seems to go downward?  Here are some methods and strategies that should keep your portfolio in the green, preparing you to make more significant profits when the market turns upwards.  Shorting  Shorting or short selling is one of the most common methods to take profits in a declining market. Considering cryptocurrencies are a highly volatile asset, this method can bring some vast profits and result in severe losses. When shorting, you borrow funds from the crypto exchange, and you sell the asset at the current market price. It is the opposite of buying a cryptocurrency and hoping for its price to increase.  For instance, If the price of BTC remains in a downward momentum, you can close your position at a later date, rebuy BTC for a lower price, and cash in the difference as profit.  However, if the coin price goes up, you will need to buy back the coins at a higher market price, resulting in a net loss.  Trend-Resistant Coins Sometimes, there are certain coins on the market that defy all significant trends. When everything is going down, some crypto assets go in the opposite direction.  Once you start following the market closely and comparing price patterns, you will be able to predict which coins can behave against the current. There are two examples of trend-resistant coins that rose to fame" thanks to their unexpected behavior. During the 2019 bear market, Binance Coin (BNB) made over 1000% profits, and Chainlink (LINK) outperformed leading coins like Bitcoin and Ethereum by 300% when the entire market was struggling. Swing Trading When prices go down, you should exploit the trend and take advantage of different assets' short-term price movements. While this method can give you consistent results, this trading is not for everyone. If you want to be successful in swing trading, you should learn and understand technical analysis (TA) and its basics. TA provides you with the best entry and exit points in the market. Experienced traders usually increase their portfolio during these periods by buying more altcoins at a lower price and selling them once they reach the top of the trend.  Passive Income Switch Apart from actively investing and trading, you can invest in coins that can provide passive income, leveling out the losses from the decreasing prices. To this end, there are two significant opportunities open to crypto investors:  Crypto Lending - by lending crypto on popular exchanges such as Centurion Invest Exchange CIEx, you can lend your cryptocurrencies to other users and receive interest on a regular level.  Staking - you can invest proof-of-stake (PoS) coins and lock the network's funds to receive staking rewards.   Follow our Telegram Group and Centurion Invest Twitter Account How Can You Start Using Your CI Wallet to Trade on CEIx?  Send Us an Email at [email protected]  At the time of writing (1:45 PM GMT), BTC PRICE USD 59,300 Source https://www.ci-ex.com/en_US/BTC_USD Disclaimer: The information presented in this article is for educational purposes only.

And negotiating banking deals appeared to be beyond the capacities of smaller exchanges – a fact that led the head of Bithumb to speculate back in January that there would only be some “four to seven” exchanges left standing after a six-month grace period expires in late September. Other exchanges including Coredax and GDAC were quoted as stating that they have recently signed deals with internationally recognized Anti-Money Laundering/Combating the Financing of Terrorism (AML/CFT) service providers – an indication that they too are hopeful of meeting the September deadline.

Crypto Earnings. How to Grow Digital Assets?

Crypto Earnings. How to Grow Digital Assets?

Are you aware of the passive income crypto users are getting? Recently, the mainstream market has well detected the gains of cryptocurrencies like bitcoin. But did you know that digital currencies can give 1-17% or even more by leveraging specific tactics as opposed to 0.35% to 0.60% of that generated by savings accounts?  “Make your money work for you.” You must be familiar with this. And you must also be aware that there are more than one way to skin a cat. Only speaking in a proverbial sense, of course. Centurion Invest Exchange is preparing the tools to offer investors a chance to make their money work for them. Check the latest cryptocurrency valuation at https://www.ci-ex.com/en_US/ As cryptocurrency adoption continues to increase, liquidity and potential earnings will only get better over time.  Decentralized finance (DeFi) has grown in popularity recently. Yield farming is an application of DeFi to generate high returns or rewards in the form of additional cryptocurrency. These returns are declared as an annual percentage yield (APY). You may have heard of Compound, MakerDAO, Uniswap, and many others. These are popular yield farming protocols that optimize the returns on staked funds.  Yield farming protocols incentivize liquidity providers (an LP is a user who funds a liquidity pool with crypto assets to facilitate trading and earn passive income on deposit) to venture or seal crypto assets in smart contract-based liquidity pools.  A smart contract is a self-executing computer program with the terms of the buyer’s and seller’s agreement directly embedded into code lines. As more investors join the related liquidity pool, the value of the issued returns rises in value. The incentives can occur as a percentage of transaction fees, interest from lenders or a governance token.  Most popular DeFi protocols now work on the Ethereum network and provide governance tokens for liquidity mining. Liquidity mining is when a yield farming participant earns token rewards as additional compensation.   Most yield farming protocols now reward liquidity providers with governance tokens, which can be traded on decentralized exchanges.   There are unlimited tools that offer investors a chance to make their money work and earning a return by simply holding.  Send Us an Email at [email protected] to Know How To Grow Your Crypto Assets At the time of writing ( 4:00 PM GMT), BTC trades at USD 57,160) Source https://www.ci-ex.com/en_US/trade/BTC_USD Disclaimer: The information presented in this article is for educational purposes only.

Russia Wants to Use the Digital Ruble The politician charged with putting together Russia’s crypto regulation legislation and forming the nation’s financial policy has spoken about the need to purge the United States dollar from the economic system – and has called the forthcoming digital ruble a “higher form of money.” Speaking in an interview with the state-owned media outlet RT, Anatoly Aksakov, the Chairman of the Parliamentary Committee on Financial Markets and also the Chairman of the Council of the Association of Banks of Russia, said that efforts to “phase out the dollar” were part of the country’s long-term economic plan. South Korea’s Two Biggest Internet-Focused Tech Titans, Kakao And Naver Capitalize on ‘Rising Crypto Pay Demand’ A new report has suggested that South Korea’s two biggest internet-focused tech titans, Kakao and Naver, may be well-poised to take the next step in crypto pay and crypto exchange-related business expansion. Both have already placed a foot firmly into the door of crypto, but are still taking cautious baby steps, rather than rushing in head-first. Kakao, the operator of the KakaoTalk chat app and several payment and financial services, has launched a blockchain subsidiary named Ground X, as well as the Klaytn blockchain protocol, the klay cryptoasset and the Klip crypto wallet, which is linked to the KakaoTalk interface. Investment Crypto venture firm Dragonfly Capital has launched Dragonfly Fund II, a USD 225m venture fund, to "back the next generation of crypto entrepreneurs and projects," they said. The new fund will mainly invest in four areas: DeFi protocols; NFT projects; Ethereum (ETH) Layer 2 solutions and businesses built on top of them; and centralized financial (CeFi) infrastructure. Sequoia China backed the fund as a strategic limited partner, while other partners include OKEx, Huobi, Bybit, and Bitmain.

Interest in DeFi Is Surging

Interest in DeFi Is Surging

 DeFi – Decentralised Finance The economic value of DeFi platforms has almost tripled since the beginning of 2021, exceeding $41B. These platforms are powered by tokens that provide access and governance rights. According to sources, the aggregate value of the 100 largest tokens by market cap currently stands at $83 trillion, with over $16 trillion in 24-hour trading volume.  The benefit of using DeFi financial services is that there is no need to give up personal information or custody of your funds. This reduces the risk of data being used without consent or having funds stolen. DeFi gives people the ability to independently manage their funds without missing out on any of the services available in CeFi (Centralized Finance) and beyond. In a nutshell: Users can hold their own private keys Users can confirm transactions on blockchain No third-party service Users do not need to request permission to use DeFi. They can connect to services using a wallet and without divulging personal information or depositing funds. DeFi is designed to be openly accessible to all parties without any discrimination or barriers. There is an additional benefit: mitigating the ability of companies to use or profit from personal information. Those who decide to use decentralized protocols, they can do so freely. There is a high degree of accessibility and collaboration within the community with products designed to interact and benefit from one other within the DeFi Ecosystem; this is why DeFi products are commonly referred to as money legos. A decentralized wallet is where users hold their private keys, representing complete control over the funds. With full comes responsibility. If the private key is lost, the funds will be lost forever. A big convenience of using DeFi services is that it is trustless. Users can verify DeFi services by auditing their code and using external tools to determine if a transaction was well executed. Professional services will also assess and verify that smart contracts have been adequately built to carry out services securely. The DeFi space is superstructing upon current capabilities and experimenting with innovative, cutting-edge financial services.  In areas where centralized services have flourished, such as cross-chain exchange and transfer of incompatible cryptocurrencies, DeFi has to find its own alternatives. DeFi has also invented its own assets. Users can passively earn interest by holding a token representing the interest on funds.  Ethereum, the base blockchain for most DeFi applications, has entered a new phase of development with the launch of the first step in the migration to a more scalable and less energy-intensive consensus system.  This will solve the issue regarding high fees on Ethereum, which threatens to lessen some of the transaction volumes.  Send Us an Email at [email protected] to Know More About DeFi At the time of writing (3:00 PM GMT), BTC trades at USD 53,800 Source https://ci-ex.com/en_US/trade/BTC_USD Disclaimer: The information presented in this article is for educational purposes only.

In a following post, he added, "that said, BTC & ETH do seem high lol." Here Is the Canadian Update… Stephen Harper "In the short to medium term … unless the U.S. becomes a catastrophe, it's hard to see what the alternative is to the U.S. dollar as the world's major reserve currency," Stephen Harper, Canada's 22nd Prime Minister told Jay Martin, Chief Executive of investment-conference producer Cambridge House, during an interview in January. He continued, "Other than, you know, gold, bitcoin … a whole basket of things. Today, it will have to be a whole basket." "Who's next and what will tip (bitcoin) over the edge and trigger the next surge?" asked Craig Erlam, an analyst at New York-based foreign-exchange firm Oanda Corp., in a note to clients last week.

"And that is encouraging for everybody who's in the space because it further shows legitimization of the asset." Greg Taylor "If the changes occurring in the cryptocurrency market seem familiar, they should, said Greg Taylor, Chief Investment Officer at Purpose Investments, since the same thing happened with gold. For centuries, the metal had to be lugged around and stored, which may have turned off investors. Now, though, you don't need a vault to buy it. All you have to do is buy a gold ETF. Investor demand for a bitcoin ETF has seemed strong so far — Purpose's fund is already seeing tens of millions of dollars in trading volume. "It's certainly a volatile asset class," Taylor said of cryptocurrencies. "But it does feel like it's not going to go away anytime soon." This was reported by Financial Post.

Decentralized Exchange: Centurion Invest Exchange (CIEx)

Decentralized Exchange: Centurion Invest Exchange (CIEx)

Decentralized exchanges (DEXes) are a solution to the concentrations of power and influence. While they remain relatively niche compared to centralized exchanges (CEXes), industry experts seem to be confident that DEXes witness significant growth in 2021.  DEXes were created as a safeguard for security and convenience, a strategy to maximize returns from trading activities while maintaining security.  Themain catalysts are the innovations, from layer two scaling solutions, improved automated market maker (AMM) models and atomic swaps. Automated market makers gained their popularity in 2020, driving much of the Defi boom, and are used by DEX platforms. AMMs do not need order books. They utilize smart contracts to form liquidity pools that automatically execute trades based on certain parameters. DEXes are lauded for the enhanced privacy, more robust security, and greater user control they offer to owners of digital assets. DEX users can freely trade on these platforms from wallets without using their private keys or recovery seeds. It is the users who are in charge of maintaining the security of their accounts. Furthermore, hacking would not be advantageous since it could likely be too expensive and challenging, considering that the crypto bounty won’t nearly be as large as those stored in exchange wallets. Control over a fund or Sovereignty can be exercised freely in DEXes. Users have full custody of their funds and can use them as they wish. Concerns like exchanges freezing their assets or blocking withdrawals rarely happen in DEXs.  Learn more about how you can trade on CIEx. Send us an email today!

Visa & Mastercard. Making Cryptocurrency Markets Mainstream.

Visa & Mastercard. Making Cryptocurrency Markets Mainstream.

Two credit card giants have long-term plans for the crypto sector. On Feb. 10, Mastercard made the announcement that it would accept a few selected cryptocurrencies on its payment network. The announcement followed a presentation at the end of January when Visa reaffirmed its plans to continue to push for cryptocurrency payments.   This inclusion of cryptocurrencies allows customers to "save, store and send money in new ways" while opening new opportunities for merchants themselves. With both credit card giants on board, representing billions of payments carried out every year, we can say that Bitcoin (BTC) has turned a new asset class of its own.  This development could be the beginning of mainstream adoption from mainstream technology and payment companies ready to jump into Bitcoin as an investment, form of payment, or investment vehicle. In an interview with Cointelegraph, Tone Vays, Bitcoin analyst and organizer of the "Unconfiscatable" Bitcoin conference, said, "Bitcoin has not yet entered the start of the adoption phase, it is still in the speculation/investment phase. The biggest news surrounding Elon Musk & Tesla buying Bitcoin as a strategic reserve instead of holding cash. Mastercard & Visa being interested in the first step for actual adoption for users, but once users actually get comfortable using/spending/receiving Bitcoin via Lightning, they slowly start to phase out Visa & Mastercard from their life." The same week as Mastercard's announcement, the first Bitcoin exchange-traded fund in North America was approved by the Ontario Securities Commission with a trading volume of $100 million in just a few hours. Mastercard's announcement came when the number of confirmed payments per day on the Bitcoin network grew steadily.  According to sources, while Mastercard's announcement made it clear that crypto is coming to the network this year, it did not specify precisely when and which currencies will be available. The payments giant hinted in its announcement that stablecoins might be first in line for its network but that other coins may follow. Raj Dhamodharan, Mastercard's executive vice president of digital asset and blockchain products and partnerships, hinted the firm would consider potential cryptocurrencies to include using its "principles for blockchain partnerships" framework emphasizing protection, stability, and regulation compliance, which it released after leaving the Libra Association.  Visa's and Mastercard's integration into the crypto world is expected to make it seamless to use cryptocurrencies for regular payments, which could be considered a step forward in crypto's quest mass adoption. Both Visa and Mastercard have already been working with several cryptocurrency firms to issue cryptocurrency debit cards that allow users to pay for goods and services at millions of merchants across the globe. Crypto debit cards differ from ordinary Visa and Mastercard cards because of the exciting perks offered to users, and cryptocurrencies themselves can act as a bridge between fiat currency exchange rates when traveling. Most crypto debit cards are already supported by mobile payment solutions such as Apple Pay, Google Pay and Samsung Pay.  It's possible to manage which cryptocurrencies are used to pay through a mobile app, making it easier to choose what to spend.

The Crypto "Land Of OZ" For Tax Relief and Social Good

The Crypto "Land Of OZ" For Tax Relief and Social Good

As a result of COVID-19 disruption, economic uncertainty, and the entry of 300 million user base PayPal into the crypto-consumer market, the crypto market created an "investment-commodity-alternative banking system" that investors are rapidly adopting. Cryptocurrency offers impressive flexibility and an alternative investment strategy to bold investors. Speculative crypto trading (as well as the day trading of stocks) has made many crypto investors wealthy with a substantial amount of short-term capital gains.  The IRS has made it clear that Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies should be treated as assets or intangible property — and not currency — since a central bank does not issue it. This results in taxability virtually every time Crypto is transferred or liquidated. According to sources, gains from crypto investments held less than 366 days are considered short-term in nature. That means they will be taxed at ordinary income rates as high as 37 percent at the maximum federal rate, plus the 3.8 percent Net Investment Income Tax, or NIIT. These days, even marginally successful crypto investors and day traders are often meeting these high-tax income thresholds. A California taxpayer with more than $1 million of taxable income would pay an additional 13.3 percent of state tax for a staggering 54.1 percent combined tax rate.  Even if the cryptocurrency is held long enough to qualify for long-term capital gains rates (a year and a day), the tax rate will still be up to 23.8 percent at the federal level (20 percent LTCG tax rate plus 3.8 percent NIIT), plus the state capital gains tax. The OZ program benefits investors with short-term gains. The OZ tax program allows for: diversification of asset investment classes,  a robust tax deferral,  and ultimately the avoidance of tax on all post-reinvestment appreciation From the investment date until the date the QOF investment is liquidated or sold, which can be anywhere from 10 to almost 30 years in the future (the investment incentive ends on Dec. 31, 2047), reposted Accounting Today. Three benefits: Capital gains timely invested within 180 days into a QOF are deferred until the later of (i) the time that the amounts are withdrawn or otherwise triggered under the "inclusion event" rules or (ii) Dec. 31, 2026. After holding the QOF interest for at least five years, the taxpayer's basis in the QOF increases by 10 percent of the original amount invested. Thus, the reportable gain drops to 90 percent when recognized. Taxpayers holding the QOF investment for at least ten years can exclude 100 percent of the post-reinvestment appreciation in the QOF and in the underlying assets held by the QOF — including any eligible, qualified opportunity zone business (QOZB) into which the QOF invests.

Tesla “Double Down” While sceptics claim that few others will follow in the company's footsteps, another CNBC guest on Tuesday forecast that Tesla, which itself bought $1.5 billion in BTC, will "double down" on its exposure. "I think this is not just a fad. I think Tesla's going to continue to double down on its Bitcoin investment and you'll see it from a transaction perspective as well," said Dan Ives, managing director and senior equity research analyst at Wedbush Securities.  Crypto Selloff Intensifies After more than USD 4bn in crypto asset trading position was liquidated on the 23rd of February, another USD 1bn was liquidated today in just one hour as a selloff in the crypto market intensified, increasing bitcoin (BTC)'s dominance. Almost 91% of the liquidated positions are long positions, while BTC accounts for around 40% of them. In the past 24 hours, USD 5.77bn has been liquidated, per bybt.com data.

At the time of writing (4:50 GMT ), ETH trades at USD 1,976, correcting lower from its latest all-time high of USD 2,043.

An activity that investors in China, the U.S., and the U.K. are safely doing. Banning crypto assets in India would also stop investing in companies that use crypto tokens to power their technology. According to Economic Times of India, if a ban is intended to protect the rupee, it is not necessary. The term 'cryptocurrency' is just a word. Bitcoin is not meant to be a legal tender. Amazon Web Services (AWS) Outage Affects Centralized Exchanges AWS outages have affected crypto exchanges in the past. According to Amazon Web Services, issues began at 07:09 AM PST at Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Tokyo) when systems began to overheat. Matters were resolved mainly four hours later. These incidents have led critics to suggest exchanges move to decentralized infrastructure. However, since these failures have had no lasting effect on the cryptocurrency market, a transition to alternative services seems unlikely.   Stocks Tread Water as Bitcoin Joins the Trillion-Dollar Club According to sources, U.S. businesses are expanding at their most robust rate in six years with IHS Markit's flash reading of the purchasing manager's index, which rose to 58.8 in February from 58.7 in the month prior. The Dow Jones Industrial Average, up 154 points at its zenith, finished less than 1 point higher instead, closing at 31,494. "Most of our indicators suggest stocks are pricing in a lot of good news," said Savita Subramanian, equity and quant strategist for BofA Securities, to sources. "Over $3T in stimulus may already be priced in on one measure: the ratio of S&P 500 market cap to the M2 money supply. The ratio currently stands at 1.7x, the highest level since Feb 2020, and to get to the post-crisis average of 1.4x, we estimate additional $3.1T of M2 would be needed." The S&P 500 declined 0.2% to 3,906. The Nasdaq Composite finished with a marginal gain of 13,874. The small-cap Russell 2000 rebounded after a dreary Thursday, rising 2.2% to 2,266. U.S. crude oil futures declined 0.8% to settle at $60.05 per barrel. Gold futures gained 0.1% to $1,777.40 per ounce.

Starting Small. Crypto Investment. Best of Both: Long-Term Investment Asset and Good Short-Term Trading Opportunity

Starting Small. Crypto Investment. Best of Both: Long-Term Investment Asset and Good Short-Term Trading Opportunity

Recently the BBC published an article about small crypto traders in Africa. It is quite an eye-opening report. The article featured 34-year-old Tola Fadugbagbe, who was doing odd jobs earning the minimum wage to survive. This is a typical story for many young Nigerians who are just trying to get by. In 2016, he spotted an online advert for Bitcoin that piqued his interest, and he began his cryptocurrency trading. "I started intensive research. I was spending hours every day watching videos on YouTube and reading articles about Bitcoin. I didn't have much money, so I started with $100 to $200," Mr. Fadugbagbe told the BBC. It was a decision that transformed his life. A 2020 survey by data platform Statista revealed that 32% of Nigerians are users of cryptocurrencies - the highest proportion of any country in the world. Fascinating Cryptocurrency Facts A post about Bitcoin appears every 3 seconds on social media. The global blockchain supply is expected to reach $57 M BTC by 2025. Currently it is 18.64M BTC. There were 153 million Bitcoin user addresses in 2019. Between 3 million to 3.8 million of Bitcoins are lost forever. Bitcoin accounts for $55 billion of daily transactions. The current market cap of Bitcoin sits at $829.06 billion. The 2021 Global Crypto User Index is based on a global survey issued to over 61,000 crypto users across 178 countries and regions. The report, surveyed participants between Sep. 15 and Oct. 25, 2020, to understand how retail users across different markets and profile types feel about cryptocurrency investment. The common attitude turned out to be rather positive. More than half (52%) of respondents admitted they consider cryptocurrency as a source of income. 15% of users used digital currencies for primary earnings.  The main reason people invest in crypto is its attractiveness as a long-term investment asset. However, 31% of users also consider buying cryptocurrency as a good short-term trading opportunity. Users also believe in the freedom that sovereign digital money brings. 17 out of the 20 markets represented have less than 50% trust in their local institutions. With growing interest in the Decentralized Finance (DeFi) sector, the study concluded that 66% of all users are already using DeFi applications. The report states that DeFi is most popular in Southeast Asia, where more than 52% of respondents prefer using dApps. Do You Have A Question?

Bitcoin Hit Support Level Third Time This Week. Decentralized Exchange Trading. Transparent Stablecoins?

Read on what happened across the globe in the past 24 hours. Check the market here https://www.ci-ex.com/en_US/ MARKET CAP$1,41T 24H Vol 175.06B MARKET DIRECTION BEARISH  -27.49% Bitcoin The price of Bitcoin has dropped to its support level today for the third time in the past week. Some analysts have pointed out an uptick in miners' selling as the reason behind the latest drop in price. Data analytics resource Glassnode noted that the daily Bitcoin Spent Output Profit Ratio (SOPR) had seen a "full reset." The SOPR essentially shows whether spent outputs are in profit or loss at the time of transaction. This key metric turned negative for the first time since September 2020. In other words, investors are now moving BTC at a slight loss on average, suggesting that profit-taking has decreased, according to Glassnode.  Trading  In order to understand the nuances of the crypto trading platform market, one must understand some important facts. Decentralized Exchange Trading  Decentralized exchanges generate approximately 15% of the total crypto trading volume (based on CoinMarketCap data on Feb. 16, 2021). DEX trading has been growing fast, with Uniswap’s trading volume surpassing Coinbase’s in 2020 — a feat achieved with only 20 employees. Today, Venus is trending alongside Binance, which leads the market in 24-hour trading volume at the time of writing. Professional traders may value DEXs for the security of wallet-to-wallet, or peer-to-peer, trades. However, there are two issues. First, without counterparty KYC, institutional traders cannot trade on DEXs. Second, the public chain technology supporting DEXs is slower and more expensive than exchange trading. Institutional investors will need DEXs that are faster, with lower fees and robust KYC procedures. A DEX must be built on a faster, less expensive blockchain in order to attract institutional traders. Transparent Stablecoins? A long-standing legal drama finally found a resolution. The New York Attorney General’s office announced that it had come to a settlement with cryptocurrency exchange Bitfinex after a 22-month.  This was an inquiry into whether the company had been trying to cover up its $850 million losses by misrepresenting. According to the terms of the announced settlement, which now marks an end to the inquiry that was initiated by the NYAG back in Q1 2019, Bitfinex and Tether will pay the government body a fixed sum of $18.5 million but will not be required to admit to any wrongdoing. Bitfinex and Tether can no longer service customers in the state of New York. "The patent system we have today hinders innovation," says Jed Grant. Despite the world’s trust in centralized systems, the Open Crypto Alliance (OCA) advisory board member Jed Grant asserts that modern society’s shift to favouring decentralized systems is inevitable. “The problem is centralized companies will always be attackable. And these companies that build on Bitcoin, like Zap, are what patent trolls with their pirated and quasi-valid patents will go after. They can attack companies and extract a tidy sum in fees, create costs and ultimately demand perpetual royalties. Bitcoin is not attackable as it is truly decentralized. There is no company to sue, and it is present in so many countries. Even though people claim that mining is concentrated in China making it less decentralized, it’s still decentralized,” Grant continues Check for the latest Bitcoin and Ethereum valuation at https://www.ci-ex.com/en_US/ At the time of writing (3:40 PM GMT), BTC trades at USD 43,800 Source https://www.ci-ex.com/en_US/trade/BTC_USD

Bitcoin vs. Ethereum

Bitcoin vs. Ethereum

Bitcoin  A $10,000 investment in Bitcoin five years ago would have appreciated to roughly $1.15 million today. According to The Motley Fool, Bitcoin has benefited from an assortment of traditional catalysts and brand-name business adoption. In terms of old-school catalysts, optimists continue to tout its 21 million token limit as a hedge against a constantly growing U.S. and global money supply, as well as its growing use among businesses. More recently, Bitcoin has been boosted by increased acceptance from brand-name companies. Tesla Motors purchased $1.5 billion Bitcoin for its balance sheet, with CEO Elon Musk leading the charge of optimism for Bitcoin on social media sharing platform Twitter. Payment-facilitator Mastercard also announced that it would begin supporting select cryptocurrencies later this year, and Bitcoin will undoubtedly be one. But there remain a lot of question marks concerning the staying power of Bitcoin's recent move to $50,000. For one, even with more businesses accepting Bitcoin than ever before, Fundera finds that only around 2,300 U.S. businesses out of an estimated 7.7 million with at least one employee accept it as a form of payment. As a payments-focused network, Bitcoin can validate and settle payments in an average of 10 minutes.  Ethereum  If you had invested $10,000 into Ethereum five years ago and sat on your hands, you would have over $2.5 million in your account today. The Ethereum growth story revolves around its applications outside the financial space. Ethereum's underlying blockchain offers the potential to reshape supply chains, improve energy-trading platforms, handle real estate or title transfers and ensure tax regulation and compliance. What allows Ethereum to stand out is its incorporation of smart contracts. These are protocols agreed upon by parties that help verify, facilitate, and enforce an agreement's negotiation.  Ethereum is not tied down to just the financial sector. However, blockchain enterprise adoption has not exactly been robust, with brand-name businesses unwilling to make the costly and time-consuming switch to blockchain-based networks.

2021. Decentralized Exchanges Ready to Accelerate

2021. Decentralized Exchanges Ready to Accelerate

Security and Freedom One trend we may see in 2021 is that security and custody concerns drive more traders to turn to DEXes, since these inherently involve retaining control of your own crypto while trading. This transition may be sped new cases of large exchange hacks, thereby underlining the risks of trusting a centralized party with your funds. Another, recently emerging issue relates to the whole GameStop saga, which resulted in various trading platforms suspending trading in shares of the game retailer, other companies, and even cryptocurrencies. “We have found that more and more people are turning to DEXes as a viable alternative to centralized options. This trend seems poised to continue with the events unfolding around Robinhood and stocks like GME and AMC, which have demonstrated to retail investors that using centralized providers comes with the price of being at the mercy of their policies,” said Martin Köppelmann, CEO of Gnosis (GNO), a developer of market mechanisms for decentralized finance. He added that such fears are largely removed when trading on DEXes. “This recent incident and the wave of public opinion following it has already begun to open more people's eyes to the ethos and potential of decentralization: fair marketplaces for a free market,” he said.

Cryptocurrency Trading Guide for 2021

Cryptocurrency Trading Guide for 2021

There are tonnes of information available on the internet, which could easily overwhelm anyone, including a seasoned trader. If you want to learn how to trade cryptocurrency, you are at the right place. Here is a detailed guide to help you navigate through cryptocurrency trading in 2021. Besides Bitcoin, many other coins are well-known and recognized. For example, Ethereum that is trailing Bitcoin in terms of network value, and Tether that is the leading stablecoin.  A stablecoin is a digital asset whose value is pegged to a fiat currency's value (such as the U.S. dollar) to avoid the wild price volatility expected with other virtual currencies. Most successful and professional cryptocurrency traders use stablecoins while mitigating their trading plan. Cryptocurrency Trading Vs. Investing The two terms are often used conjointly, but they are different. What is the difference between crypto trading and investing? Which is the better option? And can do you take advantage of the distinction?  The similarity is the end goal: gaining profit. The difference comes from trading activities that are generally expected within a short to medium-term period. This could be anything from minutes or hours to a few days or weeks. With investing, the trader is in it for the long haul.  It could be a better way for a beginner to choose a trading strategy that involves medium to long-term trading and investing. Here, you need to do some research and analyse your trades before committing.  Market volatility. The crypto market, on the other hand, is accustomed to wild price swings. It is normal to see double-digit percentage swings in a matter of hours. Market maturity. The crypto market is only about a decade old. This means that market value and trade volume in the former is much larger compared to the latter. The younger age also contributes to the wild volatility experienced in the crypto market. Market assets. In the crypto market, you invest in the idea, the technology, or the currency (or token), but not the company (if any) behind the currency. Regulations. In the cryptocurrency market, regulators are still grappling with understanding the emerging asset class, and this lack of (proper) regulations is part of the reason for the market's wild nature. Benefits of Cryptocurrency Trading 24-hour trading. You can trade cryptocurrencies 24/7/365 or even use trading bots and let your trades run all the time. Market volatility. Traders (not investors) live off market volatility. The crypto market has this in troves, and this means that as a trader, you will get better trading opportunities with the cryptocurrency market as opposed to the stock market. Privacy and anonymity.  With crypto trading, you have access to decentralized cryptocurrency exchanges. These allow you to trade with self-custody assets without the need to submit your identity online.  The multitude of assets.  The crypto market has advanced so fast that traders now have access to similar stock market products, including futures, options, leveraged tokens, swaps, CFDs (contracts for difference).  Easy account opening. In crypto, there is a shallow barrier to entry. You can easily create an account in an exchange and start trading in a matter of minutes.  Do You Have A Question?

CI Wallet: A Master Wallet to Deposit / Withdraw and Manage Funds (All-In-One Crypto Wallet)

CI Wallet Centurion Invest Wallet "CI Wallet" is a Master Wallet allowing customers to deposit/withdraw and manage funds in several fiat currencies and go from there to exchanges crypto and forex. What Is A Wallet?  A cryptocurrency wallet follows the same core principles as a leather wallet to put your coins and paper notes in. As well as having a crypto wallet, you will have the ability to send and receive Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. Check out the current market for the latest cryptocurrency valuations at https://www.ci-ex.com/en_US/ How Does It Work?  Cryptocurrencies do not exist in a physical form. Instead, the blockchain consists of transactional records that detail which private and the public key have control over a specific fund. Your wallet address is like a bank account number. To give you an example of what a cryptocurrency address looks like, here is a fictional wallet address: 3R1zLL4P5QGYTO6DMslrxL5SLhn3DivfHe If somebody wants to transfer your coins, you give them your wallet address. Just like in the real world, you would give them your bank account details. No two wallet addresses are ever the same. This means that there is no chance that somebody else would get your funds. Also, there is no limit to the number of wallets addresses you can create. As most blockchains are transparent, it is easy to find out how much money a particular cryptocurrency wallet has or previous transactions. Still, a cryptocurrency wallet address does not reveal the real-world identity of the owner. It is "pseudonymous." What is a Multicurrency Wallet? A multicurrency wallet, also known as a master or all-in-one wallet, is a Crypto wallet that can hold and manage multiple cryptocurrencies and help crypto exchanges.  More About CI Wallet CI Wallet is a multicurrency decentralized wallet that supports more than 300 cryptocurrencies, including Bitcoin, Ethereum, and other coins in a single platform.

Check the market here https://www.ci-ex.com/en_US/ MARKET CAP$1,45T 24H Vol 230.92B MARKET DIRECTION BEARISH  -27.47% Volatile Bitcoin: Back to Normal in March? The bitcoin (BTC) market is still healthy, despite its recent selloff, which is usual for the bull runs in this nascent industry, according to Joey Krug, Co-Chief Investment Officer at major crypto investment firm Pantera Capital. "I think, in terms of price action, things will be kind of back to normal by April, if not sooner. I think the market does sometimes take a little bit of time to let off steam. It's not going to go up in a straight line," he said during a panel discussion at the Bloomberg Crypto Summit yesterday. "You know, in traditional finance a 30% to 40% pullback would be a massive bear market," he added. BTC has dropped by around 20% from its all-time high of USD 58,641 (per Coingecko.com), reached on February 21.  Ethereum Ethereum price broke the USD 1,450 support zone, but the bulls defended the USD 1,400 level. ETH is recovering and it is back above the USD 1,450 level. The price is now attempting an upside break above the USD 1,500 level. A close above USD 1,500 might open the doors for a move towards the USD 1,550 level. If there is a fresh decline, the USD 1,450 might once again provide support. The next key support is near the USD 1,400 level. Altcoin Market  Many altcoins declined over 10%, including FTM, DODO, SOL, ICX, HT, XVS, SUSHI, IOST, DCR, GRT, CAKE, ZEN, NPXS, NANO, CRV, BNT, RVN, DASH, WAVES, ZEC, and RUNE. Out of these, FTM is down over 30% and DODO dived almost 15%. To sum up, bitcoin price is recovering higher and it is trading well above USD 46,000. BTC might test USD 48,000 and if the bulls remain in action, the price could revisit USD 50,000. Elon Musk and SEC Elon Musk is well known for his series of tweets related to DOGE, such as calling it "people's crypto," changing his Twitter bio to Doge, but also saying that his jokes about it are only that - jokes, and that he must be careful when talking about cryptocurrencies because his words could move the market. While dogecoin (DOGE), continues surviving alongside the rest of the market, Musk seems quite amused by a rumor of a US Securities and Exchanges Commission (SEC) investigation.

The loss between these two price ranges saw over 23% shaved off BTC's market valuation. While heavy losses were seen across the board throughout the entire crypto economy, Luno and Arcane Research's report shows that Tuesday's trade volume was the third-largest ever seen. The digital asset's intraday moves had shown the crypto asset's price fluctuations have been more erratic. Luno's report shows intraday moves of close to 20% happened two days in a row. Did You Buy Bitcoin in 2017?  According to Unchained's HODL Waves chart, which ranks the supply according to when coins last moved, those who bought three to five years ago are sitting on their investment. According to sources, the cross-asset crash of March 2020, when BTC/USD fell to lows of $3,600, the percentage of the BTC supply that last moved between February 2016 and February 2018 increased from 5.57% to 13.38%. In other words, the uptrend in price during 2019, much of 2020, and all of 2021 has not made 2017 bull run investors sell after surviving the multi-year bear market. "At the beginning of January, 59% of all bitcoin in the network were sitting for longer than one year without moving, and by the end of the month, that number dipped to 57%, a decrease of 2% or around roughly 372,320 bitcoin," Unchained wrote in an update earlier this February. South Korea: Lockdown and Crypto Mining According to Chosun, operators of the "PC bangs," a common term used for the PC gaming rooms in South Korea, leverages their computers to take advantage of the pandemic-driven restrictions. Some PC bang owners in Seoul are mining ETH by relying on highly equipped computers with top-notch graphic cards. A 34-years-old man named Kim, who earned over 3.5 million ($3,153) in just two weeks, is now mining ETH with almost 36 computers. PC bang operator praised the current weather conditions, as he saves heating costs by mining cryptos at the same time. New Crypto Rules in Thailand The Thai Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) could ask crypto investors to prove their market knowledge. According to a Bloomberg report, the SEC of Thailand is likely preparing the ground to require investors to show their income or assets before opening accounts. Ruenvadee Suwanmongkol, the secretary-general of the country's financial watchdog, pointed out that anyone who isn't allowed to trade cryptocurrencies via their accounts can invest through licensed managers. She added, "It's a big concern as most crypto investors on domestic exchanges are very young, such as students and teenagers. We realize those people love innovations and technology, but investments in these assets have enormous risks". Former MLB star sells $1M worth of NFTs in one minute.

Altcoins’ Increasing Competition

Altcoins’ Increasing Competition

While Bitcoin (BTC) exchange-traded funds (ETFs) are gaining traction, new competitors increasingly eye altcoins. "Altcoin" is a combination of the two words "alt" and "coin" and includes all alternatives to Bitcoin. Many altcoins target the perceived limitations of Bitcoin, but an altcoin must have a killer advantage to succeed against Bitcoin.Many of the altcoins are based on the basic framework provided by Bitcoin. Therefore, most altcoins are peer-to-peer. They offer efficient and inexpensive ways to carry out transactions on the Internet. While having overlapping features, altcoins vary widely from each other. According to sources, the leading crypto asset management firm owned by Digital Currency Group (DCG) has confirmed that they're looking into at least 23 various digital assets "for potential new product offerings," as the press release stated. "We may not turn each of these assets into one of our landmark investment products," said Grayscale CEO Michael Sonnenshein, and added that they "view it as our responsibility to introduce investors to more diversity in this space." "There is no guarantee that assets named in the above list will receive a corresponding investment product," continued the press release. "The process of creating an investment product structured similarly to those Grayscale already offers requires significant review and consideration, and is subject to substantial internal controls, sufficiently secure custody arrangements, and regulatory considerations," it said. Types of Altcoins As altcoins evolved, their categories emerged, include mining-based cryptocurrencies, stablecoins, security tokens, and utility tokens. There is also some movement toward separating most of these concepts from altcoins. If that trend continues, altcoins might refer only to mining-based cryptocurrencies other than Bitcoin in the future. An altcoin can fall into more than one category. Mining-Based These altcoins have a mining process by which new coins are generated by solving challenging problems to unlock blocks. They are more similar to Bitcoin than other altcoins. Most of the top altcoins in early 2020 fell into this category. Ethereum is possibly the best-known mining-based altcoin. Stablecoins Stablecoins seek to improve on Bitcoin by reducing volatility. In actual practice, this is achieved by tying the value of the coins to existing currencies. Popular choices for backing altcoins include the U.S. dollar, the euro, and gold. Facebook's Libra is by far the most famous stablecoin, even though it had not launched yet as of January 2020. Security Tokens These altcoins are linked to a business. They often launch in an initial coin offering (ICO). Security tokens resemble traditional stocks, and they often promise some dividend in the form of a payout or ownership in a business. Utility Tokens Utility tokens provide a claim on services, and they are sometimes sold as part of an ICO. Filecoin is an excellent example of a utility token offered in an ICO. Filecoins are designed to be exchangeable for decentralized file storage space. Do You Have A Question?

CRYPTOCURRENCY & SPORTS. Europe’s Most Successful Soccer Club Gets Crypto Sponsor

Sports have an undeniable reach across the world, while blockchain and cryptocurrency are unexpectedly growing in the industries. The partnership between the two is creating truly phenomenal opportunities. The correct use of the tools and partnering platforms is creating a lifetime impact between Sports and Cryptocurrency. Sportsbook sites accept Bitcoin, Ethereum, QTUM, EOS, ZCash, Monero, and many other Cryptocurrencies. Check the market here https://www.ci-ex.com/en_US/ Here are a few noble mentions of how cryptocurrency started to edge its way into sports over the last few years: The NBA outfit Cleveland Cavaliers partnered with a cryptocurrency exchange for advertising on the team's stadium, promotions of the club's social media platforms, Cavs Legion. Miami Dolphins also partnered with Litecoin to be the NFL team's official cryptocurrency. Los Angeles Dodgers - a major League Baseball team, introduced its first crypto-giveaway in September 2018 during a sports event. It was announced that Buffalo Bills' backup quarterback Matt Barkley, formerly on the Bengals, asked to be paid in Bitcoin. The same goes for Russell Okung of the Los Angeles Chargers. The Dallas Mavericks started to accept cryptocurrencies to pay for season tickets. The Maimi Dolphins announced a cryptocurrency as the team's official cryptocurrency.' The Sacramento Kings even mined cryptocurrency for charity at the Golden 1 Center as part of its MiningForGood program. And the list goes on. In 2020, after Socios.com, a cryptocurrency platform having issued tokens for sports fans of ten European soccer clubs, including Juventus, FC Barcelona, and Paris Saint-Germain, decided to roll out a soccer fan wish list to buy cryptocurrency from significant teams. Contenders such as Real Madrid, Manchester City, and AC Milan were the favourites.  So, it is not coming as a surprise this week that Europe's most successful soccer club announced a partnership with a Turkish Bitcoin (BTC) trading platform.  Rangers Football Club, Europe's most trophy-laden team with 115 competition wins, announced its association with Turkish cryptocurrency exchange Bitci Technology. The club is also planning to launch its fan token as part of the deal that will run until the end of the 2022–2023 season. "RangersFC are delighted to announce an exciting new Official Partnership with Bitci Technology, in a wide-ranging agreement that will see the @bitcicom brand appear on the Rangers First Team shorts, through until the end of the 2022/23 season."

BTC extended its rise above USD 52,000 and traded as high as USD 52,750. At the time of writing (3:20 PM GMT), BTC trades at USD 51,830  Source https://www.ci-ex.com/en_US/trade/BTC_USD Similarly, there were strong bullish moves in most major altcoins. ETH/USD surpassed the main USD 1,840 resistance and traded to a new all-time high at USD 1,915. XRP/USD is facing hurdles near USD 0.550, above which it could rally further. Elon Musk's Cryptocurrency Volatility Warning  In a recent "doorstop" interview of Musk, he said there was a "good chance" cryptocurrency could be the "future currency of Earth" – but he also warned about its volatility. "Well, which one is it going to be? And maybe it'll be multiple. But it should be considered speculation at this point. So don't go too far on the crypto speculation front. It's fine to spend disposable income on it, but "don't bet the farm on it. People should not invest their life savings in cryptocurrency, to be clear — that's unwise." ABC reported this. The Crypto Rich List New research from Traders of Crypto has revealed the Crypto Rich List – the 25 people who have earned the most from the digital currency boom.  Unsurprisingly, mysterious Bitcoin dynamo Satoshi Nakamoto tops the list with a staggering $34.9 billion estimated fortune.   The founders of Ripple and Binance are featured in the top 10, alongside the Winklevoss twins. Countries include Japan, China, United States, Canada, Latvia, Russia and Saint Kitts & Nevis. The US Charges Three North Korean Hackers. According to the latest reports, the US justice department has accused three North Korean military intelligence officials of a campaign of cyber-attacks to steal $1.3bn in crypto and traditional currencies from banks and other victims. The three individuals created malicious cryptocurrency applications that opened backdoors into victims' computers. They hacked into companies marketing and trading digital currencies like bitcoin. They developed a blockchain platform to evade sanctions and secretly raise funds, the department said. North Korea's operatives, using keyboards rather than guns, stealing digital wallets of cryptocurrency instead of sacks of cash, are the world's leading bank robbers," said the assistant attorney general John Demers in a statement. China According to Bloomberg, China's blockchain stocks are missing out on the "cryptocurrency mania." A Bloomberg-curated basket of seven key Chinese A-share stocks with ties to the blockchain technology underpinning cryptocurrencies, including Shenzhen Forms Syntron Information Co., Shenzhen Ysstech Info-Tech Co., and Brilliance Technology Co., has fallen about 16% so far this year, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. That compares with a 36% rise in an Elwood Asset Management index tracking global blockchain-linked shares.

Did it or Did it Not? The Baffling 1.5 B Crypto Selloff

Did it or Did it Not? The Baffling 1.5 B Crypto Selloff

Willy Woo, on-chain analyst, shared interesting findings over the February Bitcoin prize correction confusion, indicating that a whale dumping USD 1.5B worth of Bitcoin may have been the catalyst that started the massive Bitcoin sell-off in February.  Having spoken with Rafael Schultze-Kraft, the CTO of Glassnode, Woo said it appeared that incorrect data on the movements of a massive BTC trove made it look like a Bitcoin whale was moving their crypto to an exchange with a possibility of sales in the open market. But in reality, the movement was simply an internal transfer. “I was trying to figure out this big sell-off. And, you know, the very peak of it started when there was a little alert that we had $1.5 billion that just moved onto the exchanges to sell… the assumption was to sell. And I think that spread amongst traders, and we started to see the sell-off pre-empting that. I was just talking to the CTO of Glassnode and just saying, “Is this legit?” And it looks like there was actually a labelling error on the wallets and that there was just an internal movement of coins within Gemini.” “…That killed our momentum, that might have been what killed our momentum. We had plenty of move to room to move downwards because we’re floating so high above the fundamental floor. But, yeah, that might have been what caused this crazy sell-off. And it was just fear incited by bad data.” Do You Have A Question?

BTC climbed above USD 50,000, but it faces resistance near the USD 51,500 and USD 52,000 resistance levels. A close above USD 52,000 could open the doors for a steady increase towards the USD 55,000 level. On the downside, initial support is near USD 50,000.

John Cho, the director of global expansion at GroundX, said: "We were expecting it but didn't think it'd come this soon or this fast. A solid bounce from here would be ideal, but some potential retracement support regions I'm watching. My bias is towards the 40-41k region as it would fulfil a 30% correction from ATH."

The Future of Crypto Mining: Beyond the Great Well

The Future of Crypto Mining: Beyond the Great Well

The shipping giant Sino Global, listed on the Nasdaq exchange employing some 19,000 staff, is to acquire a controlling stake of 51% in the autonomous Chinese region of Inner Mongolia-based company Inner Mongolia Nine-Chain Intelligent Big Data Park Service. This is a deal worth around USD 8.5m. Per a press release, Nine-Chain Intelligent's computing power centre currently has about 150,000 KW*hour capacity for Bitcoin mining and 50,000 KW*hour capacity for Ethereum mining. The total Bitcoin computing power reaches 4500P and Ethereum computing power 28T. Lei Cao, the shipping firm's CEO, said, "We are extremely excited to execute an LOI to help us strategically expand our business to bitcoin and ethereum mining. Recently, cryptocurrency mining has evolved rapidly with scalability and infrastructure. This investment will provide Sino-Global a foundation to develop the mining project efficiently." According to sources, the deal is subject to due diligence checks, and the firms did not reveal when it could expect to be completed. This latest mining news is an exciting follow-up on another bullish move coming from a lottery firm 500.com. Earlier in the week, the firm announced buying the BTC.com crypto mining firm from Bitmain co-founder Jihan Wu.  As we are already in the second month of a new year full of promises, what then lies ahead for the future of bitcoin mining as the industry continues on its path of innovation? According to the University of Cambridge's Centre for Alternative Finance, 65 percent of the world's bitcoin power comes from China. The country is home to the most prominent equipment manufacturers and accounts for almost 65% of the global bitcoin hashrate (a computer power measure on the network). Yet, as the bitcoin mining race heats up, the most critical factor is a mining-friendly government with stable regulations around cryptocurrencies and sustainable energy resources that are also low in cost. As Nasdaq pointed out in one of its articles, countries such as the U.S., Russia, and Kazakhstan have also started to catch on fast in the bitcoin mining industry, coming in just behind China. These markets have a great deal of potential despite the wide gap.  But for North America to develop its mining industry, it needs more than the good graces of regulators. Mining needs a lot of cheap electricity to be a profitable business.  So far, the price competitiveness is proving well. Canada and the U.S. have very advanced electricity grid infrastructure that can be used for crypto mining at a lower cost," said Ethan Vera, co-founder of North America-based mining operator Luxor and founder of Hash Rate Index, during an interview with TechNode.  As bitcoin's rebound prompts increasing demand for mining operations and interest in digital assets from institutional investors continues to grow, these new markets are certainly ones to watch as the space continues to diversify and seek out promising opportunities beyond the Great Wall.

Over the course of the past month, some of the coins pushed to the never-before-seen highs as well: primarily talking about bitcoin (BTC) and ethereum (ETH) here, which jumped above USD 58,000 and USD 2,000, respectively, in the second half of February. The performance of the crypto markets, particularly that of bitcoin, kept the eyes of many retail and institutional investors glued to it for two months now. Bitcoin price followed a bearish path below USD 50,000. BTC even broke the USD 45,000 support zone and traded close to USD 43,000. It is currently (11:35 GMT) recovering above USD 47,000, but there are many important hurdles expected near USD 48,000 and USD 50,000. Ethereum  Ethereum also followed a similar path to bitcoin and declined below the USD 1,500 support. ETH even traded below USD 1,400 and recently tested USD 1,300. The price is now recovering and trading above the USD 1,500 level. Ethereum’s first major support is near USD 1,320 and USD 1,300, below which the price could test USD 1,200. JPMorgan finally Says “Yes, It Can”.  JPMorgan Chase & Co. finally agreed that investors can add up to 1% of their allocation to bitcoin (EXANTE: Bitcoin) to achieve "any efficiency gain in the overall risk-adjusted returns of the portfolio," Bloomberg reports, citing the bank's strategists Joyce Chang and Amy Ho.   Crypto Cruise Ship According to sources, plans by Panama-based company Ocean Builders to launch a crypto cruise ship were reportedly scrapped by what company representatives describe as the inflexibility of big insurance companies. The ship was planned to be a floating community to host businesses including stores and restaurants that planned to accept bitcoin (BTC) from customers.The former Pacific Dawn, a 1991-built 804-foot vessel, was to be renamed as MS Satoshi in a bid to honour the cryptocurrency’s creator, Satoshi Nakamoto. However, instead of becoming a floating blockchain hub anchored offshore in the waters of Panama, the vessel was sold for scrap and reportedly sent to a yard in India where it is to be dismantled. Two Canadian Bitcoin ETFs Gain Approval Canadian regulators have approved a Bitcoin ETF from the Toronto-based firm Purpose Investments, which will begin trading on markets under the ticker BTCC. In February, several investment firms worked toward creating Bitcoin ETFs, a long-awaited cryptocurrency investment vehicle. The Canadian firm Purpose Investments has just earned approval, while NYDIG and Grayscale have weighed in on the matter. The Ontario Securities Commission was responsible for approving these ETFs. The regulator, in its decision, noted that new investment vehicles can succeed or fail. “Securities regulators are not mandated to try to pick winners and losers,” it concluded, thereby giving justification to Purpose Investments' ETF.

It Is A ‘Bitcoin Whale Spawning Season.’

It Is A ‘Bitcoin Whale Spawning Season.’

Bitcoin whales are on the move after significant gains over the last few months. Any wallet address holding more than 1,000 Bitcoin is considered a whale. The increase of BTC whale addresses is due to the massive demand from institutional investors.  According to a report published by the on-chain market analysis and analytics platform, Glassnode, Bitcoin wallets holding 1,000 – 10,000 BTC have surged 14.18% between 12 March 2020 and 5 February 2021 due to a massive accumulation by large institutions. According to the report, bitcoin whales saw a supply increase of approx. 80,000 BTC in January but large Bitcoin addresses dumped around 140,000 BTC worth more than $6 billion in February.  Glassnode reported earlier that the number of Bitcoin addresses holding at least $1 million in BTC jumped above 94,000 for the first time in February 2021. As of writing, the world’s largest cryptocurrency is trading just below $50,000 with a total market cap of nearly $913.28 billion. It is a ‘Bitcoin whale spawning season.’   As per Glassnode: “This wallet behaviour suggests a sizeable portion of these coins may not be sold, but instead being restructured in custodial wallets… [One] could hazard a guess that this behaviour is indicative of very long-term custodial holdings and coins are entering deep cold storage. So, while coins are on the move and larger balances are being reclassified, it does not necessarily suggest an end to whale spawning season. “Whales are offloading tokens this month. The data shows that the whale investors could either be looking to be taking in profit and selling their Bitcoin or could be merely moving their tokens out. With more than 140,000 Bitcoin offloaded since the beginning of February, we look at an estimated amount of USD 6.72 billion moved out of whale accounts this month.  However, offloading activity is not necessarily selling. It could be bullish that whales are offloading their Bitcoin as it could mean they are storing their tokens for more prolonged investment without trading Bitcoin had a volatile start of 2021, both in terms of price and supply. Institutional buying is fuelling the price of BTC and keeping it around $50,000. In addition to MicroStrategy, which now confirmed that it recently acquired BTC 19,452, increasing its stash to BTC 90,531 (USD 4.5bn), crypto asset managers accumulate Bitcoin at a rapid pace.   Do You Have A Question?

Maximizing the Potentials of Blockchain And Cryptocurrency Watch the full show here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wHFGKiK_ils&feature=youtu.be While cryptocurrencies have been around for just over a decade,  research by venture capital firm a16z showed that the crypto space evolves fast, and it happens in cycles.  A cycle generally starts with an increase in the crypto assets' prices, driving social and traditional media buzz. The coverage and excitement bring more people into the space, contributing new code, ideas and creating new projects. This eventually starts the next cycle.  To date, we have seen three crypto cycles that peaked in 2011, 2013 and 2017, and 2020/21. Despite price falls in each cycle, there has been consistent growth in developer activity, social media activity, and many start-ups created in the space.  The peak of the next cycle is likely to coincide with new technological breakthroughs and rising crypto prices. Long-term price appreciation is likely to be supported by increased interest in cryptocurrencies as an asset class by institutional investors.  There are many ways to make money with cryptocurrency and generate income in the crypto space. Given the inherent volatility of crypto assets, most involve a high degree of risk, while others require domain knowledge or expertise. Investing Investing is usually associated with taking a long-term view by buying and holding assets for some time. Crypto assets are generally well suited to a buy-and-hold strategy. Research by investment firm Fundstrat showed that most Bitcoin gains came in the year's ten best trading days. You can open a trading account in less than 3 min.  As with any investment, crypto should be considered in the portfolio context based on your investment goals and risk tolerance. Trading Cryptocurrency for Profit The main difference between trading and investing is time. Trading is for short-term opportunities. Trading cryptocurrencies requires specific skills and experience, explicitly reading charts and understanding technical indicators. Having an in-depth knowledge of blockchain and different projects, however, is not required. This way of making money is more about understanding the price action in the historical context and predicting future prices, often on a short-term basis. To make money online trading cryptocurrency, investors can buy and sell actual crypto coins or use derivatives instead, such as a contract for difference (CFD). When you trade crypto using CFDs, you speculate on the direction of the underlying asset's prices without owning it. You can either take a long or short position, depending on whether you expect an asset's price to rise or fall. Therefore, CFDs allow you to profit from both bullish and bearish price movements in underlying securities.  Other ways include:  Trade Bitcoin to US Dollar - BTC/USD CFD Staking and Lending Crypto social media Mining Airdrops and forks Follow our Telegram Group and Centurion Invest Twitter Account How Can You Start Using Your CI Wallet to Trade on CEIx?  Send Us an Email at [email protected]  At the time of writing (12:00 PM GMT), BTC PRICE USD 57,900 Source https://www.ci-ex.com/en_US/trade/BTC_USD Disclaimer: The information presented in this article is for educational purposes only.

Bitcoin Consolidates. Ethereum Passed USD 1,700. Institutions Are in BTC For the Long Haul.

Check the market here https://www.ci-ex.com MARKET CAP$1,82T 24H Vol 113.35 B MARKET DIRECTION BULLISH  13.80% 11:30 AM GMT Bitcoin After a short-term downside correction, bitcoin price found support near USD 54,800. BTC is now consolidating near the USD 55,000 level and it seems like it could rise towards the USD 56,000 resistance. The main weekly resistance is still near the USD 57,000 level, above which the price could rally towards USD 60,000. If there is no upside break above USD 57,000, the price could start a fresh decline. An initial support is near the USD 54,200 level. The main weekly support is now near USD 53,200. A daily close below USD 53,200 could possibly call for a move towards the USD 50,000 zone. Ethereum Ethereum price recovered above the USD 1,650 and USD 1,660 resistance levels. ETH tested the USD 1,735 zone before correcting lower. It is now trading well above USD 1,650, but it must settle above USD 1,720 for a steady increase in the coming sessions. On the downside, the USD 1,650 level is a major support. Any more losses might call for a fresh decline towards the USD 1,550 support level. Norway Billionaire Turned into A Bitcoin Bull Øystein Stray Spetalen, one of Norway’s richest people, is a high-profile investor and holds board positions on pharmaceuticals, shipping, and sports-related companies – and was linked in the mid-2000s to a possible takeover deal with the footballing behemoth Liverpool FC. Spetalen has not held back on the subject of bitcoin, and as recently as earlier this month was going on vitriolic rants about the token, calling for an EU ban. Visa Starts Settling Transactions in USD Coin on Ethereum Payments giant Visa partnered with major crypto company Crypto.com in order to settle transactions in the second largest stablecoin USD Coin (USDC) with Visa over Ethereum (ETH). "Working with Anchorage, the first federally chartered digital asset bank and an exclusive Visa digital currency settlement partner, Visa has launched a pilot that allows Crypto.com to send USDC to Visa to settle a portion of its obligations for the Crypto.com Visa card program," the payments company said, adding that it plans to offer the USDC settlement capability to additional partners later this year. Institutions Are in BTC For the Long Haul Recent research from JPMorgan, indicated that retail investors purchased more bitcoin than institutions in Q1 2021, at a ratio of 187,000 to 173,000. On the other hand, Q4 2020 witnessed institutions buy around BTC 307,000, while retail traders bought ‘only’ BTC 205,000. Looking at the bigger picture, Coinbase’s regulatory filing with the US Securities and Exchange Commission revealed that retail’s share of bitcoin purchases has fallen steadily over time, from 80% in Q1 2018 to 36% in Q4 2020. This indicates that institutions are buying up a bigger share of the bitcoin pie, a trend which may only continue and perhaps even accelerate in the future.

At this price, the crypto asset is selling for $20,000 more than the approximately $52,000 that most cryptocurrency exchanges are currently quoting.

In exchange, miners get ether, the digital coin that runs on the Ethereum network. According to CNBC, Ether hit a record high on Thursday, up over 160% year-to-date to over $1,914. Ether's mining algorithms run best on graphics cards, which is the kind of chip that Nvidia is known for. The first new cards will go on sale in March.

The reasons for recognizing cryptos and the massive investor response to this asset class are manifold: failed government policies, disillusionment with the banking system, and unfair distribution of IT returns. India awaits the unveiling of the Cryptocurrency and Regulation of Official Digital Currency Bill, 2021; in Parliament, the appetite for blockchain technology and cryptocurrency among Indians appears to be fascinating.

Billionaires in The Cryptocurrency Ecosystem. What Do They Say? Elon Musk

Billionaires in The Cryptocurrency Ecosystem. What Do They Say? Elon Musk

Reuters reported earlier this year that Tesla Inc CEO Elon Musk said:" owning bitcoin was only a little better than holding conventional cash, but that the slight difference made it a better asset to hodl." "However, when fiat currency has a negative real interest, only a fool wouldn't look elsewhere," Musk said in a tweet. "Bitcoin is almost as bs as fiat money. The keyword is 'almost.'" He also defended Tesla's action to invest in bitcoin, saying that the difference with cash made it "adventurous enough" for the S&P 500 company to hold the cryptocurrency. Tesla's $1.5 billion bitcoin purchase set the cryptocurrency soaring in February, and Musk's promotion of Dogecoin on Twitter also lifted the price of that cryptocurrency. Musk also shared his thoughts in a spotlight fire chat while signing autographs for the fans outside of LA restaurant BOA Steakhouse. The clip that went viral was initially posted on the YouTube channel of The Hollywood Fix He said that there could be "multiple" cryptocurrencies that last in the long run. He also warned about the risks of investing in a speculative asset class. One fan replied, "so, disposable income is OK?" Musk replied by urging him not to "bet the farm on crypto."  When asked about Dogecoin, he said that "fate loves irony," referring to the currency's inception as a joke project. Musk used the same phrase in a Clubhouse stream last week. During that discussion, he said that Bitcoin was close to reaching "broad acceptance." Several posts on Musk's Twitter page have helped pump the Dodgecoin's price, and the Bitcoin market also responded by pumping the asset's price by 20% when he changed his bio to read "#bitcoin."

CI Must-Know Secrets When Investing in Cryptocurrency

Maximizing the Potentials of Blockchain And Cryptocurrency H.E. Ali Kassab, Chairman Centurion​ Group speaks about Maximizing​ The Potentials Of Blockchain And Cryptocurrency​​ during CoinNewsExtra's interview session... Watch the full show here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wHFGKiK_ils&feature=youtu.be Investing in the world of cryptocurrency is lucrative and risky at the same time. Like any other investment, the crypto market is all about risk management and research. When correctly leveraged, you can use the extreme volatility of the crypto market to your advantage. Investing in cryptocurrencies requires skill and patience. The crypto market is a lucrative one with plenty of opportunities for massive profit. Knowledge is Power When you understand your investment and the world in which it operates, you can predict price movements and shifting market trends. When you first start investing in cryptocurrencies, you should always take the time to understand them. For example, while Bitcoin may be the oldest and most popular cryptocurrency in the market, its behavior as an asset has changed over the years. As Bitcoin gained momentum, shifting market sentiments and even geopolitical tensions affected BTC price valuations. Hence when investing in cryptos, take the time to do your research and stay abreast of current affairs. This gives you the edge over other investors and may even allow you to stay ahead of the crowd. Stay Updated Despite being decentralized and unregulated, cryptocurrencies are affected by real-world events. An excellent example of this would be the 2019 U.S – China Trade War which, given today's events, may seem like it occurred a million years ago. At the height of the trade war, Bitcoin prices rose significantly on the back of fears that the Yuan would take a severe hit because of U.S sanctions against China. Investors looking to hedge their assets' value turned to cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin instead of the USD or Yuan, increasing cryptocurrency price. While protecting cryptos from inflation, this also has the risk of leaving crypto investments vulnerable to theft and hack attacks. When a virtual heist occurs, investors are left with little-to-no legal recourse. When entering the crypto industry, you should always take steps to ensure that you only work with the most trusted sources of traders, investors and service providers. From crypto exchanges to eWallet providers, always remain on the alert and suspicious of any untrustworthy individuals. Stay Objective Whether you are selecting the right assets to invest in or making a choice, you must always stay objective and logical. This will prevent you from falling prey to any foolish decisions that can and will cost you dearly. While simple, you would be surprised by how many investors have fallen prey to less than objective decision-making.

Trading Basics: If You Get Caught Up in The Bitcoin Game

Maximizing the Potentials of Blockchain And Cryptocurrency H.E. Ali Kassab, Chairman Centurion​ Group speaks about Maximizing​ The Potentials Of Blockchain And Cryptocurrency​​ during CoinNewsExtra's interview session... Watch the full show here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wHFGKiK_ils&feature=youtu.be To Keep It Simple:  It is easy to get euphoric and think whatever today’s coin price is a safe bet. Therefore, be prepared to learn about what you are investing in and know its risk. Bitcoin is speculative and volatile. Buying near USD X means buying near the highest price Bitcoin has ever been. Some think Bitcoin is going to USD 10X; some think it is going to USD 0. Historically that has been true or not depending on the weather on a given day. Bitcoin is not the same as Blockchain. Blockchain technology is something many are bullish on, but that opinion should not be confused with being passionate about Bitcoin specifically. Blockchain is not Bitcoin, a company that calls itself Blockchain is not the same as the technology blockchain.  If you get caught up in the Bitcoin game, it can be easy to forget that not all world’s governments favour supporting Bitcoin. Libertarians and Tech Geeks are bullish on Bitcoin. On the other hand, world governments and banks are less so. As we move into the future, more governments have started embracing Bitcoin and crypto, but there is no plan for a digital state built upon digital currency. Digital currency, at best, is a supplemental asset class. Be realistic about the potential future and do not fall for a fairy tale version of utopia. If you do not understand Bitcoin’s tax implications, brush up on them before starting power trading. You could get into a situation where you make money on paper but end the year down in Bitcoin without taking a loss and thus end up owing a bunch of money you do not have in taxes. Those who do not have investment experience can get in trouble if they don’t understand the somewhat complex trading crypto implications. The market is difficult enough with the major coins, and it is even more complex with different flunky alt coins and ICOs. From time to time, you can buy these low and see senseless gains. Getting it right is the best bet in crypto, and you may see a short period in which these coins perform well. The problem is, almost all the odd coins down the list and ICOs generally could potentially end up being worthless. You may be able to make a profit but be careful choosing coins from the bottom. Bitcoin might not make you rich, but it is considered a less risky alternative to betting on coins further down the list.

Trading Basics: Learn the Crypto Lingo

How Cryptocurrency will disrupt banking and financial systems! What impact on the current financial crisis in Lebanon! Centurion Invest has launched CI Wallet a digital banking solution and CIEx: Crypto Exchange & Trading Platform! Watch the full show here https://youtu.be/1hJinsNtBjM To Keep It Simple:  Volume is decent on any given crypto exchange, but this isn't like trading the S&P. If you are playing with 50BTC, and you try to buy or sell that much at once, you can distort the market temporarily. When you watch buy and sell orders in an exchange, you notice that when sells ball up, the price tends to drop, and when buys ball up, the price tends to go up. If you try to buy or sell too hard, you can drag the price up or down a little. If you have insanely deep pockets, you can accidentally be dipping your toes in at-best-grey-area behaviour. It is much better etiquette to buy and sell in average amounts for the book you are buying on. When a high-level investor buys ten billion worth of a stock or sells, they do it in chunks to avoid dropping or spiking the asset's price. Watch out for pumping or dumping a coin. What looks like a lot of buyers could be one person or a group messing with the price. The lack of regulation is a blessing and a curse with crypto, as is the relatively low volume compared to other asset types. You have to learn the crypto lingo. BTC is the symbol for Bitcoin. Bitcoin is a type of cryptocurrency. Altcoins are cryptocurrencies separate from Bitcoin. Arbitrage is buying and selling different cryptocurrencies for profits based on differences in prices for currency. A Bear Trap is when certain holders may dump their cryptocurrency into the market, causing prices to fall. This makes other holders sell their currencies as well which further drives down the prices. Those who initially sold their currency can buy back the extra currency at lower prices to draw up the prices and make profits through extra coins or the difference between the selling and buying prices. HODL is an acronym standing for "Hold on For Dear Life." Originating from a typo found on a Reddit thread on cryptocurrencies and adopted as a convention. It is way easier to invest and trade if you understand the standard terms used. It is also easier to make friends in crypto groups if you know investing lingo and basic memes.  Know when to take a loss. Nothing is less fun than taking a loss, but if you are going short in BTC and have not set a stop, sometimes it makes more sense to take a beating and wait for a better price than it does to start going long suddenly. The best way to know when to hold 'em and or fold 'em is some fundamental technical analysis on longer-term charts paired with unwavering discipline. Bitcoin is speculative and volatile. Know what you are investing in and know the risk. It is easy to get euphoric and think whatever today's price is a safe bet. Historically that has been true or not depending on the weather on a given day.

BTC started an upside correction and it recovered above the USD 51,500 and USD 52,000 resistance levels. The price is now showing positive signs above USD 52,000, but it must gain momentum above USD 53,200 for a steady increase. If there is no upside break above USD 53,200, the price could restart its decline. An initial support is near the USD 52,000 level. A daily close below USD 52,000 could possibly call for a move towards the USD 50,000 zone. Ethereum ETH Ethereum price remained stable above USD 1,550 and it even recovered above USD 1,600. ETH climbed above the USD 1,620 level, but it is still facing a strong resistance near the USD 1,650 zone. A clear break above USD 1,650 is a must for a sustained upward move. On the downside, the USD 1,600 level is a short-term support. The main support is now near USD 1,550, below which the price might decline towards the USD 1,500 level.  L2 Scaling Solution Delayed. No Optimism for Ethereum In March According to  the team behind Ethereum (ETH) scaling solution, Optimism, an uncoordinated rush into Layer 2 without enough community preparation is dangerous and there's a risk that popular decentralized apps might get forked and launched by adversaries with the intention of defrauding users. "Our goal is to make sure that foundational projects, infrastructure providers, block explorers, wallets, and token bridges have time to integrate, audit and test," the team said, adding that their main heuristic for opening mainnet to the broader public is "stability and ecosystem readiness." Cryptocurrency Investment Average weekly asset inflows across all major digital asset investment product providers decreased by 70.5% since February to USD 149.6m, according to crypto market data provider CryptoCompare. Meanwhile, since the end of February, total assets under management across all digital asset investment products have increased 8.76% to USD 58.7bn (as of 22 March). Bitcoin Speedy Trial  Bitcoin (BTC) developers and community seem to have finally agreed on a timeline to activate Taproot, a proposed protocol upgrade that should improve Bitcoins privacy and flexibility, and its biggest upgrade since SegWit in 2017. According to the March 23 notes from a Taproot activation meeting, the code could be ready for users to activate in the Bitcoin Core client via “Speedy Trial” in May of this year. If Speedy Trial is successful, this would mean the upgrade could be online in November. "There's concurrence that as long as we're getting to a release sometime in May (with a very strong preference for Mid-May as opposed to End of May) that we don't need to re-evaluate," Bitcoin Core contributor Jeremy Rubin wrote, and "there's concurrence that regardless of pushing the start or stop dates, we should hold the November 15th date steady."

Trading Basics: The Forks

Trading Basics: The Forks

How Cryptocurrency will disrupt banking and financial systems! What impact on the current financial crisis in Lebanon! Centurion Invest has launched CI Wallet a digital banking solution and CIEx: Crypto Exchange & Trading Platform ! Watch the full show here https://youtu.be/1hJinsNtBjM To Keep It Simple: The Forks A Bitcoin fork can have a substantial impact on a cryptocurrency, and they are confusing. Significant price fluctuations often predicate them.  When a fork occurs, the people who decide on forking Bitcoin will step up to create new rules by setting new code that is “branched” out of Bitcoin’s source code. Once the block is reached, all Bitcoin holders end up with two Bitcoin types: the original and the new one. Holders have an amount of forked Bitcoin equal to the number of their original Bitcoin at the time of the fork. So, if you had 1 Bitcoin when the fork occurred, you would still have that 1 Bitcoin, but now you can also claim 1 “new Bitcoin.”  However, this does not happen automatically. You need to claim these new coins since each new coin has a different claiming mechanism. After you claim your new coins, you can then hold on to them or sell them.    Thanks to forking, you can generate money for nothing. Next time Bitcoin forks, the same will happen. However, if you are not in the fork for the capture date, which is difficult to predict, you do not get the free coins.  This leads to another point. What is a Fork?  In its broadest sense, a fork is simply a change in the blockchain’s protocol that the software uses to decide whether a transaction is valid or not. This means that almost any divergence in the blockchain can be considered a fork. In the beginning, there was Bitcoin, which was designed to function as a decentralized digital alternative to cash. Over the years, more specialized currencies have appeared.  These new cryptocurrencies did not just appear from nowhere. They were all a result of a fork.  There are a few reasons why you should learn about forks: The new rules and the new coin could offer better options than using the original Bitcoin. A fork has an impact on the Bitcoin community and adoption, and even its price. You can profit from the fork by claiming and selling the new coins. Forks are nice, but they are not worth losing money over. .1 Bitcoin Cash is worth about $522 as of today in March 2021. 1 Bitcoin costs about $56,500. If it cost you hundreds in losses to get a single Bitcoin Cash, it probably was not worth it. In other words, do not let the excitement or fear of a fork mess with your general strategy too much.  Read up about Zlcassic Price Drop and the Bitcoin Private Fork Snapshot. Two lessons here:  In cryptocurrency, many people buy the rumor and sell the news, and it almost always pays to assume the fork is real.

The new contract is a micro bitcoin futures product that represents 0.1 bitcoin rather than CME’s other contract that equals five bitcoin. The smaller contract aims to make investment in bitcoin futures more accessible “to a broad array of clients.” The Canadian anti-money laundering agency, Fintrac, says it recorded official capital inflows originating from Hong Kong that totaled more than $34 billion in the past year.

The Hot Second Quarter: While PayPal Could Be Future Catalyst to Widespread Adoption of Cryptocurrencies, Goldman Sachs Looks To Offer Bitcoin Investment Vehicles.

Centurion Invest. Maximizing the Potentials of Blockchain And Cryptocurrency Watch the full show here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wHFGKiK_ils&feature=youtu.be Last December, PayPal announced that its users would be able to buy, sell, and hold bitcoin in their Paypal accounts. But this was not the biggest news. PayPal also said that it plans to eventually make bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies usable as a payment method for purchases through PayPal's 29 million merchants.  As per Reuters yesterday, PayPal Holdings Inc has now started allowing U.S. consumers to use their cryptocurrency holdings to pay at millions of its online merchants globally, a move that could significantly boost the use of digital assets in everyday commerce. This service will be available in the coming months, the company said. PayPal's launch comes less than a week after Tesla Inc announced its adoption of bitcoin payments. The offering made PayPal one of the largest mainstream financial companies to open its network to cryptocurrencies and fuel a bull run in virtual coin prices. While crypto assets are gaining traction among mainstream investors, it has yet to become a widespread payment form due to its continued volatility. PayPal hopes its service will change all that. "This is the first time you can seamlessly use cryptocurrencies in the same way as a credit card or a debit card inside your PayPal wallet. "We think it is a transitional point where cryptocurrencies move from being predominantly an asset class that you buy, hold and or sell to now becoming a legitimate funding source to make transactions in the real world at millions of merchants," President and CEO Dan Schulman told Reuters ahead of a formal announcement. As Paypal is optimistic about the road ahead for widespread crypto adoption, CNBC reported that Goldman Sachs aims to offer bitcoin and other crypto investment vehicles to private wealth management clients. Mary Rich has recently named global head of digital assets for the bank's private wealth management division.   "In this newly created role, she (Rich) will work closely with advisors to educate clients about blockchain technology and the digital assets ecosystem, and seek to deliver content, investment offerings and services," states Rich's promotion in an internal memo. Rich told CNBC that Goldman Sachs expects to offer "physical bitcoin, derivatives or traditional investment vehicles in the near-term." "There's a contingent of clients who are looking to this asset as a hedge against inflation, and the macro backdrop over the past year has certainly played into that," said Rich. "There is also a large contingent of clients who feel like we're sitting at the dawn of a new Internet in some ways and are looking for ways to participate in this space."

He proceeded to search the App Store on his iPhone for a Trezor app. He recounted that when he came across a bona fide-looking app with a “nearly five-star rating” bearing what appeared to be the Trezor logo, he downloaded it and entered all his credentials. French Crypto Investor Sues Australian Firm French businessman Alexandre Raffin, who runs the Paris-based Gains Associates, a company that allows investors to pool their money and buy crypto, has filed a lawsuit in an Australian court against crypto advisory and research company Modern Assets Australia. Raffin accused the Australian firm of an alleged scam related to a failed deal to buy tokens built on the Klaytn platform, a blockchain project backed by South Korea's Internet giant Kakao - claiming he lost more than USD 600,000 after the market skyrocketed. Tesla Patches Flaws in Open-source Bitcoin Pay Software The auto giant Tesla has gone a step further than simply buying bitcoin (BTC) and accepting BTC pay – and is now contributing fixes to open-source software built on the Bitcoin network.

How to Make Money with Cryptocurrency? Bitcoin Mining.

How to Make Money with Cryptocurrency? Bitcoin Mining.

Bitcoin miners generated an estimated $1.1 billion in revenue in January, up 62% from December, according to on-chain data from Coin Metrics analysed by CoinDesk. During this period, bitcoin's price surged to $42,000. As of February 2021, miners gain 6.25 bitcoin for every new block mined - equal to about $350,000 based on current value. What is Bitcoin Mining?  Bitcoin Mining is the process of securing the network and processing every Bitcoin transaction. Miners do this by solving a computational problem allowing them to chain together blocks of transactions: The Bitcoin Blockchain. How Does It Work? Issuance of new bitcoins Miners confirm transactions that assure the security   Bitcoin miners are rewarded new bitcoins every 10 minutes. Miners cannot deceive the system as the issuance rate is set in the code. Bitcoins cannot be fabricated out of thin air because computing power is necessary to generate new bitcoins. Miners confirm transactions sent on the Bitcoin network in their blocks. These transactions are only secure and complete once they are officially embedded into Bitcoin's blockchain. One confirmation is enough for small Bitcoin payments of less than $1,000. Most exchanges require three confirmations for deposits payments $1,000 - $10,000. Large payments between $10,000 - $1,000,000 with six confirmations are considered to be secure. In fact, it is the miners who secure the Bitcoin network by making it difficult to attack, alter or stop. Therefore, the more miners there are, the more secure the network is. According to our research, the only way to reverse Bitcoin transactions is to have more than 51% of the network hash power. Distributed hash power spread among many different miners keeps Bitcoin secure and safe. The Bitcoin released by Satoshi was intended to be mined on computer CPUs. Still, coders soon discovered they could get more hashing power (Hash Power or Hash Rate is the measuring unit that measures how much power the Bitcoin network is consuming to be continuously functional) from graphic cards. So, GPUs were quickly surpassed by Application Specific Integrated Circuits (ASICs). Today, all serious Bitcoin mining is performed on ASICs, usually in thermally regulated datacentres with access to low-cost electricity. What is a Mining Pool? Pools are groups of cooperating miners who agree to share block rewards in proportion to their contributed mining power. While these mining pools could look like a great opportunity to the average miner, they primarily offer the rewards to the mining pool's owner. Suppose you are thinking about hobby Bitcoin mining. In that case, you need to consult a local expert for further assistance in determining whether Bitcoin mining is legal and the tax implications of doing the mining.

Interest in DeFi Is Surging

Interest in DeFi Is Surging

DeFi – Decentralised Finance The economic value of DeFi platforms has almost tripled since the beginning of 2021, exceeding $41B. These platforms are powered by tokens that provide access and governance rights. According to sources, the aggregate value of the 100 largest tokens by market cap currently stands at $83 trillion, with over $16 trillion in 24-hour trading volume.  The benefit of using DeFi financial services is that there is no need to give up personal information or custody of your funds. This reduces the risk of data being used without consent or having funds stolen. DeFi gives people the ability to independently manage their funds without missing out on any of the services available in CeFi (Centralized Finance) and beyond. In a nutshell: Users can hold their own private keys Users can confirm transactions on blockchain No third-party service Users do not need to request permission to use DeFi. They can connect to services using a wallet and without divulging personal information or depositing funds. DeFi is designed to be openly accessible to all parties without any discrimination or barriers. There is an additional benefit: mitigating the ability of companies to use or profit from personal information. Those who decide to use decentralized protocols, they can do so freely. There is a high degree of accessibility and collaboration within the community with products designed to interact and benefit from one other within the DeFi Ecosystem; this is why DeFi products are commonly referred to as money legos. A decentralized wallet is where users hold their private keys, representing complete control over the funds. With full comes responsibility. If the private key is lost, the funds will be lost forever. A big convenience of using DeFi services is that it is trustless. Users can verify DeFi services by auditing their code and using external tools to determine if a transaction was well executed. Professional services will also assess and verify that smart contracts have been adequately built to carry out services securely. The DeFi space is superstructing upon current capabilities and experimenting with innovative, cutting-edge financial services.  In areas where centralized services have flourished, such as cross-chain exchange and transfer of incompatible cryptocurrencies, DeFi has to find its own alternatives. DeFi has also invented its own assets. Users can passively earn interest by holding a token representing the interest on funds.  Ethereum, the base blockchain for most DeFi applications, has entered a new phase of development with the launch of the first step in the migration to a more scalable and less energy-intensive consensus system.  This will solve the issue regarding high fees on Ethereum, which threatens to lessen some of the transaction volumes.  Send Us an Email at [email protected] to Know More About DeFi At the time of writing (3:00 PM GMT), BTC trades at USD 53,800 Source https://ci-ex.com/en_US/trade/BTC_USD Disclaimer: The information presented in this article is for educational purposes only.

BTC broke the USD 55,000 and USD 54,500 support levels. The price is now struggling to stay above USD 54,000 and USD 53,800. It seems like the bears are aiming for more losses below the USD 53,200 and USD 53,000 support levels. If there is a fresh increase, the USD 55,000 and USD 55,500 levels might prevent upsides. A close above USD 55,500 might open the doors for a move towards the USD 57,000 resistance. Ethereum ETH Ethereum also failed to settle above the USD 1,710 resistance and declined again. ETH broke the USD 1,680 support it seems to be struggling above USD 1,660. If there is a downside break below USD 1,660 and USD 1,650, the price could dive towards the USD 1,600 level. On the upside, the USD 1,710 is a short-term pivot level. The main resistance still stands near USD 1,750, above which the bulls might gain strength.  Tesla Starts Accepting Bitcoin Without Converting to Fiat The leading US-based electric car manufacturer Tesla has come good on promises from last month, announcing that will not only accept payments in the world’s most popular cryptocurrency, bitcoin (BTC) – but will seek to keep any of the BTC it receives.  On Twitter, Tesla supremo Elon Musk announced that the company would not be seeking to convert any BTC payments it receives into fiat. Ethereum Fees to Stay High Even With EIP-1559 While Ethereum's adoption has seen a massive growth, with the rise of decentralized finance, stablecoins, and non-fungible tokens, fees have shot up to new highs in early 2021, due to network congestion and sharp price increase. Many are looking at incoming Ethereum improvement proposals (EIPs) and layer 2 (L2) projects as potential solutions - but the much-talked-about EIP-1559 is not it, said yet another analyst. Transaction fees now make up 50% of Ethereum miner revenue, said Nate Maddrey, a Research Analyst at crypto intelligence firm Coin Metrics, but the fee structure is set to change with the inclusion of EIP-1559 in the upcoming London hard fork, expected this July, bringing automatic setting of fees and token burn mechanism. Mitsubishi, Banking & Telecom Giants Invest USD 62M in DeCurret The Japanese crypto exchange DeCurret has received a major boost with leading banks, conglomerates such as Mitsubishi and others participating in USD 62 million funding round for the fast-growing platform. The Tokyo-based company will use the money to create a new “digital currency” platform and a smartphone, reported Nikkei and TechCrunch Japan. The package will also see Toshihide Endo, the former head of the country’s top financial and crypto regulator, the Financial Services Agency (FSA), join the company as a special advisor from April.

Trading Basics: Price Spikes and Corrections

How Cryptocurrency will disrupt banking and financial systems! What impact on the current financial crisis in Lebanon! Centurion Invest has launched CI Wallet a digital banking solution and CIEx: Crypto Exchange & Trading Platform ! Watch the full show here https://youtu.be/1hJinsNtBjM To Keep It Simple: Investing and Trading Tips & Tricks Cryptocurrency tends to make big moves in its price and volume. You can expect price spikes and corrections. You need to be patient and stick to your strategy: It is easy to get FOMO (fear of missing out) and buy high, and it is easy to get overwhelmed by FUD (fear, uncertainty, and doubt) and sell. If you miss a price jump, it isn’t necessarily time to go all-in in an emotionally charged panic. Instead, wait patiently for the price to settle (which could take weeks or months) or average in or out slowly. Taking profits makes sense after the price goes way up or making a buy after the price drops. Avoid panic buying after the price just went way up, or panic selling after it went way down. Bitcoin tends to find support/resistance at whole number points. For example, at $55k and $55.3k. It also absolutely loves to react at whole numbers like $60k and either drop or run. If you know you want to take profits soon or buy soon, keep an eye on those whole numbers. If you feel like the run must almost be over, pull your profits before the whole number is reached. Set limit orders for a few dollars under or over recent lows and highs. This can result in you buying or selling before a coin hits resistance. Sure, you can use technical analysis skills to find support and resistance levels, but you can also follow trends by looking at a chart. Once you get used to trading, you will spot a general support or resistance level and get close to the level a pro would have charted out.  Considering setting stop orders after you buy is super important for everything, except maybe building a long position over time. A stop order creates a market order when a price is hit. Stop orders are subject to slippage and fees. This also means that you can calculate your risk. As a general rule of thumb, you can ladder stops when not at a computer to protect your investment. Most of the time, stops work as intended and save your investment in the case of a downturn. Learn to use stops and be careful in understanding your risks. Are you following updates on a daily basis? As a trader, you need to watch the official news. Follow the blockchain sections of financial publications of Forbes, CNBC and Bloomberg. They all have sections devoted to blockchain.

The price even spiked below USD 54,000, but the bulls appeared near USD 53,300. It is currently trying to correct higher towards the USD 54,200 level. Going further, an immediate resistance is near the USD 55,000 level, followed by the key USD 55,500 pivot level. Ethereum ETH Ethereum price also followed bitcoin and it broke the USD 1,750 support zone. ETH even settled below the USD 1,710 support level and tested the USD 1,660 zone. If it moves higher, the previous support at USD 1,710 and USD 1,750 could stop upsides. On the downside, if ETH fails to stay above the USD 1,660 level, it could decline further towards USD 1,600 or USD 1,580.  BitClout The criticism against what turned out to be one of the most controversial crypto projects this year (so far) is heating up. Many high-profile players are growing increasingly angry with the new, high-profile-investors-backed project called BitClout. The first question that was in many people's tweets in the past day was 'what's BitClout?' The questions grew in number as many well-known Cryptoverse residents started finding their own profiles on this new blockchain-based social network - and they didn't create them. Morgan Stanley Rules out M&A Deal for Bithumb The American investment banking powerhouse Morgan Stanley has dismissed reports linking it to a possible M&A deal for the South Korean market-leading crypto trading platform Bithumb as “unfounded.” Per the South Korean media outlets News1 and News Tomato, Morgan Stanley stated: “The reports that [Morgan Stanley] has plans to acquire a stake in Bithumb are untrue.” Mining news Major computer processor developer AMD has confirmed it would not be blocking mining operations on its graphics cards, reported PC Gamer. Nish Neelalojanan, a product manager at AMD, is quoted as saying that "we will not be blocking any workload, not just mining for that matter. [...] However, mining specifically enjoys, or scales with, higher bandwidth and bus width [than gaming] so there are going to be limitations from an architectural level for mining itself." This follows the news of an Ethereum (ETH) mining limiter implemented on Nvidia's GPUs.

Centurion Invest has launched CIwallet a digital banking solution and CIEx: Crypto Exchange & Trading Platform ! Watch the full show here https://youtu.be/1hJinsNtBjM To Keep It Simple: Investing and Trading Tips & Tricks Many traders use trading bots. Some could be hackers; some will try to get you to make bad trades. So, keep an eye out for bots. If you are using a bot, be extra careful. There are bots designed to exploit poorly programmed bots. In general, if you do not have a solid grasp of technical analysis (we already talked about this in a previous blog) and crypto trading, avoid using the bot. Bots are only as valuable as your strategy.   Welcome to the wild west. Enter at your own risk. When trading, you must watch for spoofers and market manipulation. Spoofing caused the flash crash of 2010 in the regulated stock market, and that happens times 10 in crypto. When we come across a "too-good-to-be-true" spike or dip, it is often the result of either market manipulators, bots, or a combination of both.    Here is the hard truth. The chances you will never have to work again if you invest your life savings in Bitcoin do not exist today. Bitcoin does not cost $225 anymore.  Do not invest more than you can afford to lose. If Bitcoin ends up down, you will be left hodling the bag while others are on to better and brighter coins.   Taking profits can result in you making less money than you would have if you did nothing and just "let it ride," but that is only true if Bitcoin goes up over the long term. Take your profits. Some investors think taking profits is a rather conservative strategy. If you have hefty profits, consider taking them off the table and then waiting for a lower price in the future. You can always buy back in at a higher price later. If a coin you have invested in goes up 400%, consider taking some profits. Cryptocurrency almost always corrects at some point after a big run. Do not run into the risk of hodling purely out of greed. If the run was the result of a pump and dump, take it all off the table as quickly as possible. Watch out for market manipulation.   You have to share your public address to receive coins, but never share your private keys or passwords with anyone. When you are online, avoid entering your private keys and passwords, that is even better. Some scam sites will use a similar domain or a remarkably close Twitter address to run phishing scams. Double-check everything.

BTC broke the USD 58,500 and USD 58,000 support levels. The bulls are now defending the USD 57,200 support zone. If there is a downside break below USD 57,200 and USD 57,000, there are chances of more losses to USD 55,000. On the upside, the first key resistance is near the USD 58,000 level. The main resistance is still near USD 60,000, above which the price might accelerate higher to a new all-time high. Ethereum ETH Ethereum price is following a similar path to bitcoin and it also failed to clear the key USD 1,850 resistance. ETH is now consolidating above the USD 1,750 support. The main weekly support is still near USD 1,710. If there is a clear break below USD 1,710, the price might dive towards the USD 1,620 level. Conversely, the bulls need to gain strength above USD 1,820 and USD 1,850 for a fresh move towards the USD 2,000 barrier in the near term. Bithumb Rumors appear to be hotting up as rival players – including the likes of Deutsche Bank, Visa, Binance and the search engine operator Naver – have reportedly held talks about buying minority or controlling stakes (or possibly even taking over) Bithumb, South Korea’s biggest crypto exchange. As previously reported by Cryptonews.com, a deal with the domestic gaming giant Nexon (also the owner of the Korbit and Bitstamp crypto exchanges) was thought to be “all but done” back in January after Bithumb’s biggest shareholder Lee Jung-hoon put his stake in the company up for sale last year. Turks Turn to Exploring Crypto As Turkish lira (TRY) plummeted once again amidst massive economic uncertainty and opposing views over solutions, the country's citizens turned to Google to explore bitcoin (BTC) and other cryptoassets. The rise in interest for crypto is happening at the time when Turkey's currency lira plummeted 14% after President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan fired the country's central bank governor Naci Agbal on Saturday, who's the third person on that role to exit in less than two years, reported BBC. Erdogan's move was reportedly quite a surprise, shocking both the local and foreign investors.
