  • Cryptocurrency News: CEO of Ukraine Based Exchange Kidnapped
    CEO of cryptocurrency exchange Exmo Finance – Pavel Lerner, was kidnapped on December 26th 2017 just when he was leaving work outside the office in Kiev, Ukraine. The head of the exchange agreed to a $1 million bitcoin ransom to be freed. The case has been discussed all around the crypto-community as it is an example and a lesson giver about privacy and security while both of them are very important in the crypto-ecosystem. Keeping in mind that even the term cryptocurrency is on a popularity surge and let alone bitcoin and digital assets with their values rising, risks of attacks and theft are growing proportionally. Many lead-heads and very famous figures are concerned with the topic of protection and security. Bitcoin was created in October 2008, when an anonymous person or group by the name “Satoshi Nakamoto” released a ...

  • This Biotech-Turned-Blockchain Company Led the Nasdaq to 7000
    A biotech-turned-blockchain company was the biggest winner in the run-up to the Nasdaq Composite’s latest milestone. Riot Blockchain saw the biggest percentage gain between the Nasdaq’s first close above 6000 in April to its close above 7000 on Tuesday. Riot’s stock surged more than 640% during that period, with the bulk of those gains coming after the company switched its focus to investing in blockchain technology October.  Before that announcement, the company was called Bioptix Inc. and made diagnostic machinery for the biotech industry. It’s worth noting that Riot wasn’t the only firm to capitalize on the cryptocurrency mania last year. Long Island Iced Tea, which also trades on Nasdaq, last month changed its name to Long Blockchain Corp. and announced it wants to now invest in opportunities that use the technology that underpins bitcoin and other digital currencies.

    Authored by Mark St.Cyr, Remember back in days of yore (pre-2015) when a new year celebration, or any celebration or extravaganza for that matter, would pale in comparison to a “it’s different this time” funding round after-party? You remember don’t you? This was where being on the “guest list” or “invite” was the equivalent throughout Silicon Valley as a red carpet event was in Hollywood. Of course, all the free-flowing bubbly and more would be paid for via those “funding rounds.” But hey, who needs to watch the bottom line when there isn’t one to begin with, right?  Remember the mantra: “It’s different this time.” So party on and party hard, business can wait and is so – old school. So how will this years new year celebration be rung in for the Unicorn set? Hint: Bring out the crying ...

  • Bitcoin Trading Ban Endorsed In Egypt
    Bitcoin has taken the investing world by storm. It’s an unprecedented financial phenomenon, and the first of the cryptocurrencies to catch on and keep up with – and in some cases, even outpace – traditional investment opportunities. However, the path of bitcoin has been extremely volatile. Bitcoin value isn’t really tied to any real-world aspects, so the value is controlled almost entirely by supply and demand. Due to these risks, investing heavily in bitcoin is seen more as a gamble than a smart investment opportunity. Egypt’s top Imam isn’t a fan of cryptocurrency, and has endorsed a potential bitcoin trading ban. MichaelWuensch / PixabayBitcoin Trading Ban Sheikh Shawki Allam, the Grand Mufti in Egypt, has said that the cryptocurrency is forbidden by Islam, stating that it carried risks of “fraudulence, lack of knowledge, and cheating.” As mentioned above, there aren’t ...

The top performer was Ripple, with more than astounding 30,000 percent increase over a year. In comparison, the traditional investors consider themselves lucky if they outperform the S&P 500, which rallied 20 percent last year.

    Bitcoin’s overall market cap share dropped to a record low of 35.8% Tuesday as lackluster growth gave altcoins a major advantage. Ethereum Advances Hook Investors Despite recovering above $14,000, Bitcoin has failed to hold on to prices closer to its all-time highs of $20,000 seen in December. By contrast, investor money has poured back into altcoin markets, with the majority of major assets appreciating dramatically and weathering short-term volatility. At press time, gains were being spearheaded by Ethereum’s Ether (ETH), which continues to profit from the anticipation of a long-awaited Casper release. The technology’s alpha testnet was formally unveiled December 31. In a follow-up blog post today, co-founder Vitalik Buterin also announced a grant program and so-called Blockchain ‘sharding,’ both of which aim to shore up longer-term Ethereum network scalability.
