    According to Business Korea, hundreds of minor crypto exchanges in South Korea could run smack into heightened scrutiny for failing to abide by proposed enhanced know-your-customer (KYC) regulations, which would require exchanges to only provide services to users with “real-name accounts” issued by local financial institutions. Earlier this month, the Financial Action Task Force, an intergovernmental organization under the G7, proposed guidelines that encourage all crypto exchanges to share customer data.

    Cryptocurrency fraud is a massive problem that refuses to die down. Even worse is the fact that it can harm the level of legitimacy the crypto space has managed to cement for itself over the past several years. Fraud Is Running Rampant In a recent fraud case, a man has pled guilty to wire fraud and scheming tens of thousands of investors, many of which have ultimately lost hundreds of thousands of dollars. The man is Patrick McDonnell, who ran what’s known as the Cabbage Tech Corp. The fraud took place over a period of nearly four years from November 2014 to January 2018. During that time, McDonnell posed as an experienced trader and purchased and sold cryptocurrencies on his clients’ behalf. Unfortunately, many traders received phony or blatantly incorrect statements that provided false data and figures. This allowed McDonnell ...

  • Want To Make It Big in the Next Bitcoin Rally? Use These 3 Tools
    Bitcoin currently dominates the cryptocurrency market. Its price movements often determine the price direction of altcoins. A rally in Bitcoin’s price often tends to lift prices of many altcoins, while a BTC price drop usually causes the altcoin market to bleed. Occasionally, you might see some coins move contrary to the direction of Bitcoin, but they are often the exception and not the rule. Bitcoin entered 2019 at a depressing $3740 price point as weakness from the 2018 crypto winter continued to linger. However, the top cryptocurrency has managed to deliver an incredible 174% price gain to a high of $11,127 last week. More so, the market capitalization of the entire cryptocurrency market has climbed 161% from $125 billion to $327 billion YTD. The last few weeks have been significant, especially w.r.t to Bitcoin’s YTD performance. BTC was trading ...

  • Op Ed: Debunking Bitcoin Myths: “It’s Not Secure”
    Security is of the utmost importance when it comes to money, but how does one define security in Bitcoin? Traditionally, securing one’s savings has meant handing it over to a bank, but Bitcoin security requires quite a bit more personal responsibility — at least on an optional basis. Different people have wide-ranging responses to the question of whether Bitcoin is a secure alternative to the legacy banking system. Those who love the idea of taking responsibility for their own financial sovereignty view Bitcoin as the most secure monetary system that could ever exist. On the other hand, there are also plenty of people who have stories of losing tens of thousands of dollars (or more) when they threw out an old laptop or left some bitcoin on an exchange.
