  6. Overstock was one of the first major companies that expressed extreme interest in utilizing and adopting crypto – an interest that stemmed primarily from its previous CEO’s openness to the technology. Now that the company’s previous CEO – Patrick Byrne – has resigned due to controversy surrounding comments he made about his involvement in a multitude of FBI investigations, it is clear that Overstock’s interest in blockchain and crypto is purely due to the benefits it has offered the e-commerce giant, and is not simply due to Byrne’s interest in the nascent tech. Overstock Still Pursuing Crypto Despite CEO’s Resignation Jonathan Johnson, the interim CEO at Overstock, recently told Yahoo Finance that the company is going to continue building out its blockchain and crypto-related initiative – which is called Medici Ventures – as the different companies that fall underneath the Medici initiative’s umbrella are doing quite well. “The fledgling blockchain business is doing well… Our team at Medici Ventures, which is the blockchain-focused business, is still working hard, and those different companies in the Medici family are growing at a nice rate,” he explained. Overstock has long been ahead of the curve when it comes to embracing crypto and blockchain technology, as the company first began accepting Bitcoin as a form of payment in 2014, which was closely followed by the launch of Medici Ventures. Byrne was likely the impetus behind the company’s decision to begin moving into the crypto industry, as he himself began getting involved in multiple blockchain and crypto projects around the time of Medici Venture’s launch. Cryptocurrency and Retail Businesses of Equal Importance, Claims Interim CEO Although Overstock’s blockchain and crypto initiatives have become a major part of the company, they are still highly focused on building and expanding their massive retail operations. Johnson explained that the two branches of the company are of equal importance. “One side of the house isn’t going to get any more love than the other… I love both the retail business and the blockchain business,” he noted. Overstock’s ties to the crypto markets grew abundantly clear late-2017 and early-2018 when its stock price closely mirrored Bitcoin’s price action – surging parabolically before facing a steep pullback from which it has still not recovered from. Because of the critical importance of Medici Ventures for Overstock’s current business model, it is highly probable that the overall state of the crypto markets will continue to provide significant guidance to Overstock’s price action.

  10. The U.S. Treasury Department is stepping up its focus on illegal cryptocurrency-related activities. Recently, Treasury announced that its financial intelligence and enforcement agencies are collecting and analyzing Bitcoin addresses. These addresses are associated with several “Chinese kingpins” allegedly involved in “fueling America’s deadly opioid crisis.” OFAC Adds BTC Addresses to the Specially Designated Nationals list On August 21, 2019, Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) and Treasury’s Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) announced their coordinated actions to step up “financial pressure upon those who manufacture, sell, or distribute synthetic opioids or their precursor chemicals.” Treasury targets Chinese drug kingpins fueling America’s deadly opioid crisis https://t.co/lJRdfr7hF4 — Treasury Department (@USTreasury) August 21, 2019 These actions are components of investigations being carried out “to confront the deadly synthetic opioid crisis plaguing America.” According to OFAC, under these investigations are the following “Chinese drug kingpins,” – Fujing Zheng (Zheng) and the Zheng Drug Trafficking Organization (DTO). – Guanghua Zheng – Qinsheng Pharmaceutical Co. Ltd. – Xiaobing Yan (Yan) In this connection, on August 21, 2019, OFAC announced it had added 11 Bitcoin addresses and one Litecoin address to the Specially Designated Nationals (SDNs) list. Therefore, no U.S. individual can execute any transaction involving these addresses. The SDNs list includes targeted individuals and companies. Their assets are blocked. And it is illegal for U.S. persons to deal with them. FinCEN: Chinese Kingpins Use Bitcoin To Bypass Currency Controls At the announcement, Sigal Mandelker, Under Secretary for Terrorism and Financial Intelligence, stated, “The Chinese kingpins that OFAC designated today run an international drug trafficking operation that manufactures and sells lethal narcotics, directly contributing to the crisis of opioid addiction, overdoses, and death in the United States.” According to U.S. officials, the Zheng DTO used Bitcoin to launder part of its drug proceeds and to bypass currency controls and reporting requirements. Moreover, authorities pointed out that both Zheng and Yan are Bitcoin users. Therefore, “OFAC is also identifying Bitcoin addresses associated with these two drug traffickers to maximize disruption of their financial dealings.” FinCEN Director Kenneth A. Blanco indicated that, through the Bank Secrecy Act, FinCEN is collecting, analyzing, and disseminating data, which provides insight into the financial networks used by individuals “fueling America’s deadly opioid crisis.” And he pointed out, “We are making the financial sector aware of tactics and typologies behind illicit schemes to launder the proceeds of these fatal drug sales, including transactions using digital currency and foreign bank accounts.” How effective do you think the U.S. Treasury Department’s investigations will be?

  12. As in any creative process – there is always something to learn no matter how far you progress!
  13. This is very true. I prefer to hold most of the portfolio in cold storage and withdraw from exchanges right after I've reached my goals. Maybe for some guys who trade very actively this is not an option, but the more time your crypto spends in cold storage the safer you are. Though, to be honest there are DEX which are supposed to be hacker proof... But they come with their own shortcomings.
  14. That's true, it depends on a game and on the personality of the player. Some people are just not competitve and when it comes to gaming that's a good thing in my opinion

  16. Bitcoin has undoubtedly had a stellar 2019 so far. Year to date, the cryptocurrency has gained some 200%, rallying from around $3,500 to $10,000. Related Reading: Bitcoin: Crypto-Like Global Monetary System To Be a Boon For BTC While this market’s whales have undoubtedly benefited from this performance, data suggests that a good majority of BTC users are actually profitable. Thousands of Bitcoin Users Are Profitable According to Into The Block, a machine learning-enhanced blockchain analytics firm, 79% of all Bitcoin addresses with a positive balance are in profit. For any address with a positive balance, @intotheblock identifies avg price at which tokens were acquired, indicating if the address is at profit or loss. Addresses at profit:$BTC 79%$LINK 56% Addresses at loss:$ETH 74%$ADA 75%$ICX 94%$FET 93%$ZEC 95% h/t @mbeaudroit pic.twitter.com/4kOlhFui4i — Alex Krüger (@krugermacro) August 24, 2019 Their data, which was cited by pro-crypto economist Alex Krüger, suggested that some 21.36 million BTC addresses are “in the money”. Into The Block’s data suggests that most of the addresses in the money, accumulated Bitcoin at $850 to $3,900. The reason why so many Bitcoin holders are in profit is due to the fact that the cryptocurrency has only traded in a five-digit region for a small percentage of its lifetime. In fact, for around 99% of the cryptocurrency’s life, it has traded under $10,000, where BTC is trading at today. Why BTC Owners Are HODLing On While it would make sense for this vast majority of Bitcoin investors to liquidate their positions to lock in gains, CoinMetrics data is suggesting that there are now more HODLers of the cryptocurrency than ever before. On all time frames that CoinMetrics analyzed — 180 days (half year), one year, two years, and five years — the untouched supply of Bitcoin has been on the rise, growing since the bull run of 2017 and early-2018. Related Reading: Crypto Tidbits: Bitcoin Hash Rate High, Square Crypto Bags Hire, Libra in Turmoil In fact, the number of BTC that hasn’t been touched for at least one year has grown to ten million — an all-time high. This means that over half of the Bitcoin currently mined and just under half of all of BTC’s fully-diluted supply have not been transferred in over 12 months. The copious number of long-term-minded cryptocurrency investors is likely a byproduct of the growing number of theses and models that predict Bitcoin still has massive upside potential. Altcoin Bagholders Suffering While most Bitcoiners are in the money, Into The Block’s data shows that altcoin holders haven’t been doing too well. In fact, 74% of Ethereum addresses are at a loss, with many holding ETH bags from $260 to $315. Cardano, ICX, Fetch, and ZCash are among the altcoins that have also seen a majority of their owners suffer massive losses. In fact, the firm’s data suggests that 95% of ZCash addresses — there may be some shielded transactions — are out of the money. This implies that many altcoin holders held their cryptocurrencies from 2017’s mania until now, without selling.

  22. The scalability trilemma continues to dog blockchain economies, according to the latest Binance Research. Ethereum, while clinging to the crown as the dominant token economy, is facing stiff competition from a range of scrappy competitors. And you’ll never guess which blockchain Binance researchers consider to be a top contender. The report, titled “The World of Tokenization,” recognizes Ethereum’s success as “the most used blockchain worldwide for developers to issue new tokens.” As the dominant network, Ethereum has introduced a large variety of fully developed token standards, including newer innovations such as security tokens and non-fungible tokens. But despite Ethereum’s large range of offerings, Binance Research says, the “vast majority of these tokens are worthless,” and tokens on other blockchains also hold little value. The big exception is Binance Chain, which has “the second largest amount of positively-valued tokens,” after Ethereum. The study explains that “newer blockchains have begun to compete in different segments” as Ethereum suffers from issues with scalability and gas fees. In addition to Binance Chain, which allows users to pay fees “in any valuable asset,” popular competing blockchains mentioned in the report include “EOS, Ontology, and TRON or second layers running on blockchains like Simple Ledger Protocol for Bitcoin Cash.” source: Binance Research Presenting a detailed comparison of token-focused blockchain solutions, the study examines some of the distinctions between the various networks. DApp availability justifies the growth in use-case for token ecosystems and therefore is a key factor for consideration, according to the report, and speed and fees are important considerations as well. The researchers also consider “easiness to build,” along with security and the extent to which a blockchain is decentralized. In terms of DApp activity, EOS and TRON are the favorite blockchains for casino-style gaming. Ontology is a favorite among gamers, while exchange dApps have a strong presence on NEO. Ethereum is more diversified in its offerings, with growth in a wider range of applications in finance and exchange. The blockchains seeing the most activity are “Ethereum, Binance Chain, EOS, Tron, and NEO.” source: Binance Research Binance Research points out that many blockchains offer a “compelling value proposition” for the issuance of tokens, which may eventually overtake Ethereum’s dominant position. Binance Chain in particular is singled out for “the creation of tokens natively” giving it an advantage over others that rely on smart-contract deployments, like Ethereum and a number of competitors. With the relatively low number of use-cases and users across the industry, the report concludes that even though Ethereum currently dominates, it is “too early to rule out” potential competitors. “In the long run,” the study says, “a wide variety of programmable blockchains will likely coexist if interoperability solutions across chains develop and prove to be secure and usable.” The post Surprise! Binance Researchers Prefer Binance Chain appeared first on Crypto Briefing. View the full article
  23. The G7 summit is being held this weekend, with several weighty issues to be discussed by some of the most powerful leaders on the planet. Rumour has it that Bitcoin may also feature on the bill. Bitcoin Price: Short-Term, It’s Anyone’s Guess It’s been another one of those weeks for bitcoin price, with not much serious movement in either direction. The only thing we really learned is that nobody has the faintest clue what’s going to happen in the short term. At the start of the week, a rising wedge saw predictions of a break-down and pullback to $8.8k. Price of course, then jumped up to $10,900, though never really looked like troubling $11k. Bolstered by this, we were told that an influx of new volume could propel price to $12k next week. Which immediately led the price to drop back, and ultimately break lower than the psychological $10k level. Bear market signals were apparently looming… so price dragged itself back into five figures by its shirt collar. Then promptly dropped back into four. Could losses be down to a drop in global sentiment generally, or perhaps manipulation by bitcoin whales? More pain was predicted either way. But then it wasn’t… we suddenly had bullish divergence at $10k and were told that $11,000 was a target. Unfortunately, that rally petered out at around $10.4k, only to drop back to around the $10k level where it has roughly stayed ever since. Longer-term we have more of a consensus, and still, appear to be looking at $50-60k spurred on by next year’s halving event. Happy Bitcoin, Mr. President John McAfee isn’t the only Bitcoin-toting cowboy with his sights on the US Presidency. 2020 candidate, Andrew Yang, came out in support of blockchain voting and vowed to bring in the change if he succeeds in his presidential bid. Yang’s championing of Bitcoin is well documented, but this week we also looked at how other candidates were showing their support for Bitcoin. And today we learned that Bitcoin influencer, Jameson Lopp, is considering a presidential bid. His sole running platform is on the issue of universal income paid in BTC. Whatever happens, Bitcoin has already made it to the G7. News In Brief Coinbase admitted had put 3,500 crypto-traders funds at risk. Bitmex was ordered to provide documents to a US court as its motion to dismiss was thrown out. This month’s Satoshi Nakamoto reveal started promisingly, only to end up a bit of a lame duck. Silk Road founder, Ross Ulbricht’s, mum has started a petition for clemency and gathered over 200k signatures so far. China plans to release a Libra competitor before Facebook has the chance to launch Libra. And Bitmain plans to increase its hashing power by 50% with 600,000 new mining chips. And Finally… Bitcoin appears to have split up with Roger Ver. After a confusing period where the @Bitcoin Twitter account was churning out pro-Bitcoin Cash tweets, normality has now resumed. @Bitcoin now once again plugs Bitcoin, sparking speculation that the owner of the handle may have had a spat with BCash proponent, Roger Ver.
