Ex direttore statunitense della sicurezza informatica: Crypto ransomware „ impazzisce “

Il ransomware è qualcosa di cui „l’americano medio“ è preoccupato, afferma l’ex top dog della sicurezza informatica Chris Krebs

L’ex funzionario del Dipartimento della sicurezza interna Christopher Krebs ha chiesto una maggiore supervisione governativa sulla criptovaluta ieri in un’intervista, affermando che i pagamenti anonimi sono una minaccia „per l’americano medio“.

In un’intervista a Late Night con Bill Maher , Maher ha chiesto all’ex direttore della Cybersecurity & Infrastructure Security Agency degli Stati Uniti quali fossero le sue opinioni su Bitcoin

“Cosa succederà con Bitcoin Revolution? Dove vedi che sta andando? È un po ’nella tua zona, vedo che sta abbattendo la civiltà, ma forse sono anti-intellettuale „, ha detto Maher.

„La criptovaluta è, per come la vedo io, uno dei singoli fattori abilitanti che ha consentito ai criminali informatici di distribuire un’enorme quantità di ransomware nelle nostre agenzie statali e locali“, ha affermato Krebs. “Sono i pagamenti anonimi, la possibilità di pagare in modo anonimo. E penso che questa sia la minaccia informatica di cui si preoccupa l’americano medio „.

Maher ha osservato che 1600 scuole sono state colpite da ransomware (citando un rapporto di IBM ), e Krebs ha aggiunto che ci sono stati anche attacchi contro „ospedali e agenzie governative, voglio dire, Baltimora è stata colpita due volte, Atlanta, contea del Meclemburgo settentrionale Carolina, 23 contee del Texas, la Louisiana è stata colpita un paio di volte „.

“E vogliono solo soldi. Non è niente di sofisticato, questo non è ideologico ”, ha risposto Maher, confrontando – in modo sconcertante – gli attacchi ransomware alla trama del film Die Hard . (Poco dopo, Krebs si riferì erroneamente alla fittizia Nakatomi Plaza come „Torre Nakasomi“).

Krebs ha continuato avvertendo che i „cattivi“ si scatenano se non ci sono „conseguenze“

Ha raccomandato di „guardare“ le criptovalute nei portafogli di scambio, facendo pressione sui paesi che i criminali informatici chiamano a casa per reprimere le attività illegali rivolte agli Stati Uniti e aiutare i governi statali e locali a migliorare le loro difese.

Il ransomware è in aumento negli ultimi anni , probabilmente contribuendo a un problema di immagine nello spazio delle criptovalute. Un recente sondaggio indica che solo il 43% degli intervistati ritiene che la criptovaluta sia una forma di pagamento valida, e un altro del 2020 mostra che il 90% degli intervistati è „preoccupato“ per le criptovalute utilizzate per riciclare denaro.

Krebs, che è salito alla ribalta dopo essere stato licenziato dall’ex presidente Donald Trump a causa del rifiuto esplicito di Krebs delle teorie del complotto per frode elettorale, potrebbe allineare le sue opinioni pubblicamente dichiarate con l’opinione popolare in preparazione per una corsa alle elezioni. L’ex burocrate ha anche lanciato proposte politiche come investimenti in programmi di difesa informatica e istruzione statali e locali.

Bitwise reaches $ 1 billion in assets under management

Bitwise Investments has surpassed $ 1 billion in assets under management (AUM).

Strong growth is observed thanks to the Bitwise 10 Crypto Index Fund and the Bitwise DeFi Crypto Index Fund.

Cryptocurrency index funds are increasingly used for traditional trading platforms

Crypto Profit announced that its Assets Under Management (AUM) out of all of its available funds exceeded $ 1 billion.

The company attributed its growth to two funds – the Bitwise 10 Crypto Index Fund and the Bitwise DeFi Crypto Index Fund. This type of stock index fund is the first to be marketed.

“Professional investors value index funds because they provide exposure while providing the peace of mind that strategy will be managed and rebalanced as the asset class evolves,” said Hunter Horsley, CEO of the company.

Bitwise: cryptocurrency index funds

The company’s 10 Crypto Index Fund recently surpassed $ 900 million in assets under management. It tracks an index of the 10 largest cryptocurrency assets . Some 75% of the total market capitalization of the cryptomonnaie is recorded in the index.

While the company Crypto 10 Index Fund assets largely covers cryptomonnaie the Bitwise DeFi Crypto Index Fund is a little more special. It provides “sector” exposure to assets like Uniswap and Aave , which hope to disrupt the existing financial system.

The stock index fund is a fairly new development. It launched on February 17, 2021 and saw high initial demand.

“We were impressed with how quickly the DeFi fund resonated with investors,” said Matt Hougan, chief investment officer for the company. “Investors find DeFi’s disruptive potential both exciting and intuitive,” he added.

New opportunities

Earlier this year, Bitwise announced that it had started the regulatory process to allow shares in its Bitwise Bitcoin Fund to trade on OTCQX. If approved, the fund’s units would be available on traditional trading accounts . This is already the case for the Bitwise 10 Crypto Index Fund.

“We are extremely excited to take the Bitwise Bitcoin Fund down the path recently taken by the Bitwise 10 Crypto Index Fund,” said investment fund chairman Teddy Fusaro.

Other funds cryptomonnaie outside the Bitwise Crypto 10 Index Fund, include Osprey Bitcoin Trust, which was launched last month. Grayscale’s Bitcoin Trust (GBTC) is also booming and helped the company reach $ 25 billion under management last month.

Reddit: Bitcoin community reaches 2 million followers

A smartphone screen lies next to several dollar bills. The WallStreetBets Reddit page can be seen on the screen.

On Reddit, the Bitcoin community has seen strong growth as a result of r / wallstreetbets.

Two million users are now part of the subreddit

The effects of the subreddit r / wallstreetbets (WSB) now also rub off on Bitcoin – at least indirectly. On the social media platform Reddit, the group “/ r / Bitcoin” breaks the two million follower mark. The community currently has a little over 2.2 million “Redditors”. The subreddit now ranks 178th among the most popular pages on the platform.

The Bitcoin group undoubtedly benefited from the media attention of r / wallstreetbets. After all, the hype surrounding the GameStop share and Dogecoin allowed the crypto group to grow by more than 250,000 users in a few days. This is shown by the latest figures from the FrontPageMetrics analysis platform for Reddit.

However, the crypto Reddit group cannot keep up with the hype surrounding the r / wallstreetbets

The group of small investors caused a stir last week when they stood up to the “big players” on Wall Street. Hedge funds had tried to use shorting methods to profit from the drop in GameStop stock. That backfired when the Reddit community caught it, agreed, and simply bought the share price up. The result for the hedge funds was losses of billions.

The Reddit gamers are also suspected to be behind the exorbitant rise in the price of Dogecoin . The WSB not only benefit from high profits, the group is also very popular on Reddit. While the hobby investor’s subreddit was still scratching the two million users on January 21, it grewCommunity to over 7.6 million users within ten days. An increase of almost 400 percent.

Yhdysvaltain hallitus kerää 2,2 miljardia dollaria takavarikoituun Bitcoiniin

Yhdysvaltain hallitus paljastaa takavarikoineensa uudenvuodenaattona 12,5 miljoonaa dollaria eli 391 bitcoinia. Analyytikko Kevin Rooke raportoi Twitter-tilinsä kautta.

4. tammikuuta 2020 | AtoZ Markets – Yhdysvaltain viranomaisten valvonnassa takavarikoitujen bitcoinien määrä on ylittänyt 2,2 miljardin dollarin rajan. Salausanalyytikko Kevin Rooke huomasi ensimmäisenä tämän Twitter-sivullaan.

Rooken mukaan vuonna 2021 Yhdysvaltojen viranomaisten suoraan hallinnoimien bitcoinien määrä nousi 69814 BTC: hen (2,24 miljardia dollaria 32122 dollaria per BTC). Viimeisin takavarikoitujen bitcoinien kasvu tapahtui tammikuun 2021 alussa, jolloin Kalifornian käräjäoikeus antoi määräyksen takavarikoida 391 bitcoinia, joiden arvo on tällä hetkellä 12,5 miljoonaa dollaria.

Rooke huomauttaa, että tämä on suurin Bitcoin-takavarikko sen jälkeen kun 69370 BTC takavarikoitiin Silk Road Darknet -markkinapaikalta marraskuussa 2020.

Mitä Yhdysvaltain hallitus tekee takavarikoidun Bitcoinin kanssa?

Kuinka tarkalleen Yhdysvaltain viranomaiset hävittävät takavarikoidun Bitcoin Pro, ei ole vielä tiedossa. Esimerkiksi vuoden 2020 alussa Yhdysvaltain Marshals Service myi yli 4000 BTC: tä suuremmilla erillä, jopa 2500 BTC: llä.

Kaikkien takavarikoitujen kryptovaluuttojen ensimmäinen Bitcoin-huutokauppa tapahtui 27. kesäkuuta 2014. Sitten ostaja oli tunnettu salausmarkkinoiden tukija Tim Draper, joka osti 29 657 bitcoinia 18,7 miljoonalla dollarilla.

Vaikka eri hallitukset päättävät huutokaupata takavarikoidun kryptovaluuttansa, koska raportoitu Suomi hallitsee yli 16,2 miljoonan dollarin arvosta BTC: tä, jota se ei ole purkanut huutokaupan kautta huolenaiheiden vuoksi, se saattaa joutua jälleen rikollisten käsiin.

Marraskuussa 2020 analyytikkoyritys Chainalysis ilmoitti käynnistävänsä ohjelman, jonka avulla valtion virastot voivat tallentaa ja myydä takavarikoituja kryptovaluuttoja.

IOTA Cryptomoeda values 20%, see what may have motivated

Cryptomoeda is being one of the high points in the cryptomoeda market this weekend.

iota is a modern way of exchange and this crypto currency is a convenient means of payment

IOTA Cryptomoeda is one of the weekend’s high points in the cryptomoeda market, with the price rising over 24% in the last 24 hours. With the rise, the currency has risen to position 34 in the cryptomote market cap.

One of the details that caught the community’s attention is that one of the founders of the project would be travelling. The destination? New York, a city that contains a large number of cryptomime brokers.

Among other reasons, IOTA technology was being used to help Bitcoin Billionaire carry out COVID-19 tests at an international airport. Recognition of the action may also have driven the valorization of cryptomoeda.

In any case, many who bought the asset a few years ago are still at a loss.

IOTA Cryptomoeda Values High at Weekend after Good News and Community Speculation
When passing through Frankfurt airport, one of Europe’s leading airports, everyone should perform tests to see if they are with COVID-19. Upon receiving the test result, the person will be able to check their registration in a blockchain.

And among the blockchains that are validating the tests of thousands of people passing through the airport, one of them is the IOTA. The discovery was made by a currency fan, who shared that the currency has been in use for some months now, although few people have this knowledge.

In a photo of a document showing the test result, the enthusiast showed the IOTA’s image. In addition, blockchain Ethereum was also being used to record COVID-19 at Frankfurt Airport.

The enthusiast celebrated the adoption of the IOTA at such an important time. Although the currency does not use the blockchain technology like other crypto coins, such as Bitcoin, for example, its DAG technology is similar and uses similar concepts.

With blockchain technology, a recorded record remains forever recorded, and it is virtually impossible to reverse the information. This huge adoption was celebrated by the IOTA community, and could be one of the points that brought the coin to 24% in just 24 hours.

IOTA can be listed in major US brokerage house
Another point that may have been the reason for the valorisation of IOTA cryptomime is a possible listing in a large brokerage house. According to a Reddit user, Dominik Schiener would be travelling to New York to handle new IOTA listings at large brokerage houses.

The city would be home to major cryptomaniac brokers such as Gemini, for example. This brokerage house belongs to the Winklevoss brothers, who are recognized as the first Bitcoin billionaires in history.

Thus, the community has speculated that a possible listing in the brokerage house is possible. The subject is in any case speculation by the community, but it may be one of the reasons for the recent rise in the currency.

For those who bought the IOTA at the 2017-2018 historical high, the IOTA is still a loss-making project. At the time, the IOTA was worth $5.25 at some brokerage houses, falling 91% since then. Those who bought it a year ago, however, are already making more than 140% gains today.

Extremely bullish for BTC: 3 bold US dollar forecasts highlight Bitcoin’s potential

The US dollar is expected to continue its downtrend through 2021 as the Democrats take control of Congress.

Meanwhile, Bitcoin, a cryptocurrency traded inversely to the greenback, has hit new record highs above $ 40,000 – more than double its December 2017 high

Many observers agree that the dollar would be fine in 2021, given its supposed ability to handle inflation caused by the US government’s expansive fiscal stimulus to people.

„It makes a certain sense to me,“ former Fed Governor Kevin Warsh told CNBC about Bitcoin’s bull run. „The dollar is getting weaker, and after the overnight elections I would expect the dollar to continue weakening against a large basket of currencies.“

The narrative is as follows: Crypto Engine app comes with a pre-defined upper supply limit of 21 million, with supply being reduced by half after four years. In the meantime, the US dollar has no defined upper supply limit.

The Federal Reserve can print it indefinitely, which effectively reduces its purchasing power in the long run. Assets like bitcoin tend to protect investors from fiat devaluation.

The big bitcoin boom

In 2020, Bitcoin’s anti-dollar narrative took off in institutional circles.

When the U.S. government increased spending to help people through the coronavirus pandemic and the Fed cut its base rate to near zero, the dollar fell more than 12 percent from its annual high. That prompted investors to buy Bitcoin (get in too? How to buy Bitcoins with Sofortüberweisung instructions) to move their cash reserves, which ended the year up nearly 300 percent.

The year 2021 offers a similar outlook for both the dollar and bitcoin. Mr. Biden’s win this week has made mainstream analysts more bearish for the greenback.

The president-elect is hoping to increase the $ 900 billion stimulus package, which raises expectations for further inflation.

A clean blue sweep in Congress is „clearly negative for the dollar and reinforces our view of further depreciation in 2021,“ Derek Halpenny, head of research for Emea Global Markets at MUFG Bank, told the FT, adding that they are now expect the greenback to fall more than previously estimated.

In the meantime, the Fed wants to keep interest rates close to zero for the next few years – or until they push inflation above 2 percent. That includes their commitment to buy $ 120 billion worth of government and corporate bonds every month. That means more pressure on the US dollar.

Fiat competition

The bearish bias is also likely to strengthen as foreign currencies perform better amid a global economic recovery. At Goldman Sachs, analysts say investor demand for non-American assets would depreciate the dollar by at least 5 percent from its current level.

„The dollar remains near its cycle high with plenty of room for a multi-year downtrend,“ said Gurpreet Gill, a strategist at Goldman Sachs Asset Management.

All in all, Bitcoin could benefit from the dollar’s downtrend – just as it has been since March.

Institutional investors such as Paul Tudor Jones, Scott Minerd, and Stan Druckermiller have already allocated part of their multi-billion dollar portfolios to cryptocurrency. In the meantime, companies like MicroStrategy, MassMutual, Ruffer Investments and Square have bought Bitcoin for risk hedging.

Livecoin exchange goes offline after Bitcoin price on platform exceeds $320,000

Russian cryptocurrency exchange Livecoin claims it suffered a „carefully planned attack,“ but the community suspects an exit scam

Livecoin, a little-known Bitcoin Trader has suddenly suspended operations following an alleged incident on Christmas Eve. According to Livecoin’s homepage, the exchange suffered a „carefully planned attack“ in which the platform lost control of all of its servers, backends, and nodes.

The exchange urged customers to stop using its services, including deposits, trading and APIs. „We were not able to suspend our service in time. Our information channel was also compromised. At the moment, we partially control the front-end, so we were able to post this announcement,“ the website’s homepage explains.

Livecoin added that it is doing everything it can to regain control of its servers, and promised the introduction of a security update „in the coming days.“ In addition, the exchange said it is cooperating with „local law enforcement.“

According to some reports, the incident occurred on the night of December 23-24.

Hackers allegedly managed to take control of Livecoin’s infrastructure and change the prices on the exchange to incredibly high values.

The co-founder of the YellowBlock website, known as „Cryptorangutang,“ reported that Bitcoin (BTC) surpassed $320,000 per coin on the platform on December 24. „Whatever is going on, it’s not a good idea to try to exploit the situation, most likely your funds will be locked up,“ he explained on Twitter.

According to comments posted by exchange users in Livecoin’s unofficial Telegram group, the platform is not operational despite the brief opening of a login page. Some users on Reddit have suggested that Livecoin’s „hack“ may actually be hiding a classic exit scam.

At the time of writing, Livecoin’s trading volumes are not available on major crypto monitoring websites such as CoinGecko and CoinMarketCap. As of December 24, Livecoin was ranked 173rd in the crypto exchange rankings, with a daily trading volume of about $16 million.

Eine weitere große Börse wird den XRP-Handel im nächsten Monat einstellen

OKCoin, eine der ältesten Kryptowährungsbörsen, wird laut einer Ankündigung vom 28. Dezember den XRP-Handel sowie die Einzahlungen am 4. Januar 2021 aufgrund einer umfassenden SEC-Klage gegen Ripple aussetzen:

Wir haben die Nachrichten rund um die SEC-Klage vom 22. Dezember gegen Ripple, das Unternehmen hinter XRP, und zwei seiner leitenden Angestellten genau verfolgt. Da das Gerichtsverfahren stattfindet, haben wir beschlossen, dass es die beste Vorgehensweise ist, den XRP-Handel und Einlagen laut Bitcoin Profit mit Wirkung vom 4. Januar 2021 auszusetzen.

Margin-Händler müssen geliehene XRP-Token vor 7:00 PM PST, Jan. 3, 2021 (03:00 UTC, Jan. 4, 2021) zurückgeben. Andernfalls, Ihre Positionen werden liquidiert werden.

Der Austausch sagt, dass die Aussetzung bis auf weiteres in Kraft sein wird:

”Bitcoin är vårt bästa hopp” – MicroStrategys VD

Microstrategy CEO, Micheal Saylor, har sagt att Bitcoin erbjuder företaget en möjlighet som en butik med värde. Enligt honom kan rädslan för att förlora allt på grund av inflationshotet förnekas genom att investera i Bitcoin som kan fungera som en säker tillflyktsort.

Av ovanstående anledning sa VD ”Bitcoin är vårt bästa hopp” i en av hans senaste tweets

Saylor tillade att Microstrategy handlade på aktier precis som alla andra företag. Men skillnaden här är att det de handlar på är Bitcoin som finns i deras kassareserver.

Efter att ha lagt den nuvarande insatsen på $ 650 miljoner på Bitcoin System till Microstrategys innehav har det fasta innehavet i BTC vuxit till över 1 miljard dollar.

Företaget hade först köpt BTC till ett värde av 250 miljoner dollar i augusti, sedan köpte det ytterligare 175 miljoner dollar innan det nyligen köpte ytterligare en omgång av kryptotillgången för 50 miljoner dollar.

Microstrategy nyligen $ 650 miljoner Bitcoin satsning

MicroStrategy har slutfört försäljningen av $ 650 miljoner konvertibla sedlar som har en ränta på 0,750%. De medel som genereras genom denna försäljning förväntas gå till inköp av mer Bitcoin för företaget.

Företaget i ett blogginlägg fortsatte med att säga att det avser att investera de genererade intäkterna i Bitcoin. Företaget skulle dock först ta bort sitt kapitalbehov och andra medel som kan behövas för dess företagsverksamhet.

Det ursprungliga erbjudandet var 400 miljoner dollar men senare höjdes det till 550 miljoner dollar. Citi-analytiker hade ringt ett baisseartat samtal till företaget för sitt Bitcoin-netto men det har inte avskräckt dem eftersom det fortfarande finns ytterligare 100 miljoner dollar som går att vinna.

En hedgefond som har gjort sitt namn för sin förmåga att generera enorm avkastning, Renaissance Technology har köpt aktier i Microstrategy sedan början av året.
