Today we have gathered 5 unsophisticated pieces of advice which will help you manage your money more effectively and
won’t need lots of effort, focus or time.

1. Set up specific goals

Financial experts insist that making a list of specific actions that you want to do can be very useful. Avoid blurry descriptions such
as “save up more” to receive a more exact plan how to “work” with money. Moreover, to not overload yourself and your budget,
set only 3 goals you feel more certain that you can reach. For example, “purchase of a laptop”, “purchase of a car”, “marketing courses”.

2. Make an emergency fund

No, it’s not about your saving ups, it is rather a fund for unexpected costs in case of emergency. Everybody can find themselves
in trouble, that’s why it is better to be prepared in advance. When force major strikes, you won’t need to “pinch” from your savings
or lend money from all your friends. By the way, hide your emergency fund as far as possible and don’t check it without the necessity.

3. Spend money only on things that help you grow

The only way to achieve this goal is to assess your current expenses. You cannot go forward not knowing what was your starting point, can you?
So, learn your expense items for the year and make a conclusion which habits or things you should exclude and on which you can spend more.
Set it as your rule: only spend your money on things that bring you visible and tangible benefit.

4. Set up a day without expenses

Financial advisers suggest setting up a day when you won’t have any expenses at all – and that is a very good decision which will make you more
focused and attentive to your own finances. This goal is specifically useful for the young people who often do not account for their money and recklessly
spend it on entertainment and fun with their friends. Who knows, maybe in future you will learn how to have even two days a week without expenses!

5. Repay your debts immediately

Make it as your goal to firstly repay all the debts: to people, banks or credit offices. Of course, you should try not to borrow money at all, but if you have
done so, make it your priority to repay debts and not spending on yourself. In other words, adopt the philosophy of quick repaying rather than yielding
to your whims. It is not easy, but this will make you a more organized and task-oriented person.

We hope that our advice will help you save up your money so you could grow it buying actives you are interested in with the help of our service.

Today we have decided to have a small crash course for those who are new at the market of cryptocurrencies. And we’re going to start from the very basics.

The most important point that one has to understand, is that to keep cryptocurrency you have to have a wallet’s address and there are three ways how you can create one:

1. Use online wallets
2. Download a program to your PC
3. Buy a hardware wallet

We will quickly go through pros and cons of each way. But let’s start by telling a few words about what a wallet for cryptocurrencies is using bitcoin as a sample.
Bitcoin, as any other cryptocurrency, is kept only in a form of a blockchain. Anybody can view a transaction in the net, check the balance of any wallet. This information
is open for everyone. But it is impossible to tell who the owner of the wallet is.

Bitcoin wallet has two parts:

• Open key. It is the address of the bitcoin wallet, it is not a secret. It has 32-34 symbols of Latin letters and numbers. All addresses always start with the number “1” or “3”.
• Private key (sometimes called as a secret key). It is a longer sequence of letters and numbers of the Latin alphabet. You mustn’t tell it to anyone, because it is an access to the wallet.

Transaction in bitcoin network means that cryptocoins go from one wallet’s address to another. The speed of transaction is equal to emerging of a new block in blockchain
(10 minutes on average).

Transaction is subject to a small fee. Depending on the network loading, its amount can change. The sender specifies its amount. By the way, commission does not depend
on the amount of transaction. You can transfer amount equaling to $10, $10000 or $1 billion and still pay the same commission.

1. Online wallets

There are lots of sites which offer services for creation and keeping online-wallets. They are called “cryptowallets”. The service takes on all the issues of keeping funds safe.
There are pros in that, since you don’t need to think about computer safety, plus reliability of the service is usually much better that that of a simple computer.
We would like to personally recommend the service

2. Program on your PC

You can download programs for bitcoin wallet on the official website Here you can choose from lots of wallets supported by community: Bitcoin Core, MultiBit,
Armory and Electrum. Also, you can learn the features of each of them. They slightly differ from each other. For example, Electrum does not keep all the history of transactions
(blockchain) on computer, but it refers to randomly selected network nodes. Bitcoin Core, on the opposite, keeps the full history on your PC and computer must always be online
for checking if the data is accurate. Today the blockchain size for bitcoin is about 200 Gigabytes. Many people recommend taking the security of a computer with bitcoin-wallet seriously.
This is because in case fraudsters steal the wallet file, all your funds there will disappear.  As nobody wants this to happen, you need to follow the basic rules of computer usage safety.

3. Hardware wallets

Hardware wallets are a device that keeps the private key. Their advantage is that it is switched off the Internet and there is no way anybody can hack this wallet.
If the device breaks or you lose access to it, you can restore it by entering 24 random words (so-called seed words).

And you can always find favorable rates for purchasing cryptocurrency on our site BestChange. com

We wish you reliable and profitable exchanges!

Following the summary of the book we have shared this week, we would like to extend the topic and tell you about seven mistakes people
make when writing to-do lists and several ways of avoiding such mistakes.

1.Too voluminous lists

We plan to do dozens of things during the day, but all our tasks vary in their urgency, length and time required for their completion. Long lists
demotivate, because it is impossible to do every task in them.

Instead, specify 3 most important tasks which will benefit you the most in your carrier, business or you personally, and write them down in order
of their importance on a small piece of paper to keep in front of your eyes during the day.

2.Ambiguity and uncertainty

Very often we formulate our goals too vaguely, not setting forth the specific steps we need to take to achieve the result.
Instead of writing down: “Work on the presentation”, specify what exactly you are planning to do: “Make a draft of the presentation”,
“Define 3 key points of the presentation” and so on.

It is important to understand:
- what the final result would be;
- if it is possible to finish the task in one go;
- what the deadline of the task is.

3.Poor time management

It’s hard to be effective if you don’t know how many hours or days it will require you to complete this or that task. Before getting down to work,
estimate how much time you would approximately spend on this task. Even if you make mistakes in your estimations at first, they will help you to
better manage your time in the future.

4.Falling for distractions

There are days when lots of unplanned tasks emerge and unforeseen situations take place. That’s why it is important not only to structure your
schedule, but also be flexible. Every morning take a look in your calendar to check what you have planned for today and the next few days.
 During the day allow at least one hour to be spent on solving unplanned situations. This amount of free time will let you considerably decrease
 the level of everyday stress.

5.Focusing on tasks which are in fact not so important

There is always a temptation to fill your list with tasks which only seem urgent and important but actually do not play a big role in the long run.
To achieve results, you need to see the whole picture and write down tasks with real deadlines (for example, important meetings) and those that
have the most influence on your goals (for instance, work on the coming presentation).

6.No connection between tasks and end goals

Motivation depends on how the task is important for you personally. In these cases, we don’t have to summon up our spirits, we get down to work happily.
Before starting to write your to-do list of important tasks, think for a moment, why you include this or that point there. If it relates to your long-term goal,
you will work on it with more enthusiasm.

7.Torturing yourself with thoughts on undone tasks

At the end of the day, the list of important tasks is not a question of life and death. That’s why don’t torture yourself and start each morning with working on
three most important tasks for the day.

As always, we are trying to be interesting and useful for you, that’s why your opinion matters. Please tell us, did you find this information interesting, would you
like to read similar advice in the future?

All of us heard many times that cryptocurrencies are only good for trading in the darknet and for laundering money. We sometimes even get requests from journalists to give comments on such questions about illegal deals with cryptocurrencies.

But let’s sort out, can bitcoin be really used for money laundering?

I think there is no need to explain what money laundering is about – it is done to give criminal money legal status and to “cover the tracks”.

Cryptocurrency sphere with its decentralization, anonymity and almost instant transactions may seem to have become the favorite place for all kinds of financial fraudsters. But there are a few problems with that.

1. Volatility of most cryptocurrencies
Although for traders constant price surges serve as a great opportunity to profit, for people using digital currencies as a medium, a fall by 10-20 per cent can be a very serious risk.

2. Difficulty of converting cryptocurrencies into fiat currencies. More and more often the exchangers and exchange markets follow the principles of KYC, CFT and AML. Cryptocurrencies still have a half-legal status in most countries. If a considerable amount of money is transferred into cryptocurrencies, after all the stages of laundering, these cryptocurrencies will need to be transferred back into cash money. That’s how, ironically, half-legal status of cryptocurrencies protects them from criminal activity.

3. The majority of digital currencies are not at all anonymous. All transactions made in blockchain are reflected in a public ledger, where everybody can track from which account the transaction was made, how much money was transferred, and by which account it was received. No, these accounts are not connected to names and surnames, but these are easily trackable by IP. There is a limited number of currencies the main task of which is totally anonymity of transactions (Monero, Zcash, Verge and others). But the result of this anonymity is, as a rule, longer time of transaction and its higher price, and difficulty of conversion due to lower liquidity.

It cannot be absolutely excluded that bitcoin might be used in illegal deals, as any currency in the world, in cash or in a cashless way. But incredibly much more often it is the cash, in particular, dollars, which is used when financing terrorism of laundering money, but the very thought of banning cash sounds absurd.

Notwithstanding all the novelty that comes with cryptocurrencies, the most anonymous and safe way of transaction is giving money from hand to hand. That is why the majority of illegal deals are done with the use of cash. As before, using cash remains more anonymous and complicated for tracking than most of cryptocurrencies.

And what do you think? Do you believe that cryptocurrency is only good for illegal deals?

What did people use for trading before money was invented? Find out how the first coins were created, why paper money was first introduced and all the discoveries and social changes that led to our current monetary system.

Before money people used bartered goods as payment; for example, animal hides and teeth. Livestock was the most valuable commodity. Shells were also used; snail shells were very popular in China. Other goods used for payment were tools, beads, salt, crops, weapons and tobacco.

The first standardized coins were created in what is now western Turkey by King Alyattes around 7th century B.C. They were made of electrum, a naturally occurring amalgam of gold and silver. In Rome, coins were minted near the temple of the goddess Juno Moneta, which gave us the words "mint" and "money". Offa, an Anglo-Saxon king, introduced the first English coin known as the penny around 790 A.D. Because of a copper shortage, China introduced the world’s first paper money in the 9th century - 700 years before Europe did so. In the 1500s the St. Joachimsthal mine in what is now the Czech Republic introduced large silver coins called thaler. The Spanish version of the thaler became the first worldwide currency. The English called it the dollar, and the U.S. dollar was based on it.

Modern Money. The first U.S. government-backed paper bills were introduced during the Civil War. The term "greenback" comes from the intricate designs on these bills, meant to prevent counterfeiting. The largest bill in history was the 1946 Hungarian 100 million Pengo; the name was spelled out on the bills since so many zeroes couldn’t fit on the banknote, but it was only worth $0.25! The $100,000 1934 Gold Certificate was the largest bill ever made in the U.S. It was used for Federal Reserve transactions and not released to the public. The largest coin ever minted was in Australia in 2011 weighs about a ton. A U.S. nickel weighs just 5 grams—roughly as much as a hummingbird. As of 2018, there are 180 different currencies used around the world.

Bitcoin, invented in 2009 by the pseudonymous Satoshi Nakamoto, became the gold standard--so to speak--for virtual currencies. Virtual currencies have no physical coinage. The appeal of virtual currency is it offers the promise of lower transaction fees than traditional online payment mechanisms and is operated by a decentralized authority, unlike government issued currencies.

Despite many advances, money still has a very real and permanent effect on how we do business today.

Back in February, the Shift Card service, which used to issue debit Visa cards with a possibility of using cryptocurrencies, announced their closure.

But the service was succeeded by one of the largest cryptocurrency exchanges [Censored word]. The representatives of the exchange announced launching debit Visa cards with a possibility of payment with cryptocurrencies from the exchange account of the user.

It is announced that [Censored word] Card will support all cryptocurrencies available at the exchange, and the users will be able to spend them on any purchases, whether it would be food in supermarkets or public transport tickets. The conversion process will be automatic and instant at the moment when the user makes a transaction using the card.

The exchange’s clients will be able to choose the cryptocurrency they are planning to spend on purchasing goods with the help of a special mobile app. Moreover this app features an option of receiving a check, viewing transaction and purchases categories.

The British payment operator PaySafe will be issuing the cards. For the time being only the UK citizens can use the service, but in a few months [Censored word]s is going to implement their innovation in other European countries.

And what about you – would you like to have such a card? Is there a sense in such cards?

Today we carry on with our crash course for beginners in the cryptocurrency market. We will tell about technology that underlies almost every cryptocurrency and about the features of this technology.

Blockchain technology differs from a traditional data base by the principle of organizing information. Classical data base is hosted on servers specially designed for it and these servers are controlled by organization that owns this data base. Blockchain is not controlled by a person or organization and its security is ensured by its distributed architecture.

Block technology allows different sides not having trust for each other to exchange data without the central server. Processing and storage of transactions is carried out by all users at once. After adding data to the network by one of the participants, all other nodes of the network are used to check and confirm the correctness of these changes. In a decentralized blockchain the information is stored on all computers of all users at once, and not on a single server, which protects the network from hacking and data spoofing.

The more network participants and nodes, the more data copies. To change data in this situation one need to hack every single node in the network and modify all data simultaneously. Every block in a chain has a certain block of data, and when this block gets filled, the data gets encrypted and written in the network forever. To change data in any transaction, hackers would need not only the current block, but also all the next ones which is not only practically impossible, but also too expensive.

Adding blocks is carried out using cryptographic methods of protection and this guarantees the reliability of data without a universal processing center. However, constantly growing size of the chain of blocks can make its storage and synchronizing more difficult.

If data that is relevant only for the current time, is recorded in the usual database, the blockchain stores operations for the entire history of its existence. The system is designed in such a way that all transactions remain unchanged - they cannot be deleted.

Given its characteristics, the blockchain technology offers the ability to create enterprises and carry out operations that are quite flexible and safe. Today, the blockchain is beginning to be actively introduced into banking systems, property registration systems and various state registries, supply chain management, and in such areas as digital identity, energy, voting, games, the Internet of things and other.

You can find a good exchange rate for buying any cryptocurrency on our website BestChange. com.

Would you like to know more about this technology? Maybe you’ve got some questions about blockchain? Please ask in the comments and we will find the answers together.

From the date of its creation in 2009, Bitcoin is an open-source project. But despite all its openness, up to date no one knows, who is the person behind the creation of Bitcoin and who is Satoshi Nakamoto?

Let’s elaborate on what is known so far. The first step was taken in 2007 with the writing of Bitcoin code. In November 2008, a programmer, or a group of programmers, using the name of Satoshi Nakamoto published the whitepaper on the Cryptography Mailing list. It was titled “Bitcoin: A Peer-to-Peer Electronic Cash System” and paved the way for the Bitcoin protocol.

On January 3rd, 2009, the first Bitcoin block ever was mined. A few days later Nakamoto released the updated 0.1 version of Bitcoin software with some minor bug fixes.

In the beginning, a person calling himself Satoshi Nakamoto was heavily involved with the Bitcoin community and helped them modify the underlying bitcoin protocol on the website (, he – or she – had created. Satoshi remained a mystery, as the person behind this name did not reveal any personal information during the entire time of cooperation with other developers. After two years of active collaboration, Nakamoto handed the reins to Gavin Andresen, and ceased any involvement with the Bitcoin project in December of 2010.

In April 2011, Nakamoto emailed a software developer that he had “moved on to other things,” and that Bitcoin was “in good hands with Gavin and everyone.” From then on nobody has heard anything from Bitcoin’s secretive creator.

The mystery behind Nakamoto’s identity has only grown, as the Bitcoin community eagerly speculates who it could potentially be. Satoshi Nakamoto claims to be Japanese, born on April 5, 1975. To this day, it is unknown whether Nakamoto is male or female, or whether Nakamoto is even a single person or a group of individuals. Satoshi is quite a common Japanese name, and Nakamoto, though not being a top popular surname, still isn’t rare.

But the fact that his Bitcoin documentation hasn’t been published in Japanese and his perfect knowledge of English, with a twang of British English, created some suspicions among other Bitcoiners.

Some community members analyzed Nakamoto’s activity on the bitcoin forum, and their findings reveal that the chart of timestamps would suggest an unusual sleeping pattern for Japan, but be more characteristic of that of in the UK, hence giving away possible location of the posts’ author. The media has also done its digging in looking for the person behind the name Nakaomto. But the candidates they have dug up have rejected any credit for the invention of Bitcoin so far.

One thing is clear, the key to his disappearance and secrecy is possibly his huge wealth. Imagine holding 7.5 per cent of the world’s bitcoin and not being able to spend any of it.

Spending this Bitcoin on an open and transparent blockchain would be akin to coming out. Not only would every government in the world know who you are but also some very unsavoury elements who could cause you real potential harm.

The mystery of the inventor of Bitcoins remains unsolved today, but his cause is continued by the many brilliant developers of the Bitcoin community.

During the weekend our Chief Analyst decided to calculate how much on average a person could have earned on bitcoin for the last 5,5 years.

Of course, the received data cannot be absolutely accurate — otherwise we would have needed to get an access to all transactions of exchanging, appearance and disappearance of all existing during this time exchanges and exchange offices, information about private exchangings.

Our method is based on comparison of all possible options of purchase and sell for the last 1963 days (during the period between 27/12/2013 and 12/05/2019). We took all 1'925'703 possible options of purchase and sell at the average price on this day and multiplied it on the probability of making a transaction on this or that day. We established probability based on trading volume in this pair of days as relating to all trading volume for 5,5 years. We did not take into account trading within the day and possible private exchange operations. All data is available publicly and can be viewed on the site (

According to our calculations, if the number of investors will tend to infinity, then on average all these investors that bought and sold bitcoin on random days for the past 5,5 years, have earned 180 per cent of their capital. It does not mean that you can earn the same in the future, or that the majority of investors have earned, and not lost, on bitcoin in the past. This is just an approximate number the investors could have earned on average during this time (somebody lost 80 per cent, when another earned 1000 per cent).

Currently bitcoin shows remarkable results again and has already overcome the $8000 mark. If you decide to buy bitcoin at the best rate, you can always find the most profitable option with the help of our monitoring (

Would you find interesting calculations for other cryptocurrencies? Maybe you have advice or wishes how to improve our method?

Did you know that only one third of mined bitcoins participate in the turnover? The rest of bitcoins do not move among the wallets.

Of course, this can partially be blamed on hodlers, but it is highly likely that the access to inactive wallets was simply lost or the coins were forgotten by users.

The reason for that could be a loss or breaking of private key containers, impossibility to restore passwords from online-service or their closure, incompatibility of hierarchical generation of keys and lots of other options. If you have lost a password/key to your bitcoin wallet, you won’t be able to restore it, this is how the system works.

But what about the fact that every 10 minutes miners create more and more new bitcoins?

There is a limit after which the growth of the total amount of bitcoin in the network will stop, and this limit is 21 million of coins. Moreover, every 4 years the amount of new bitcoins is reduced two-fold.

For the 10 year and a half of bitcoin’s existence there has been generated around 17,7 million of bitcoins, which constitutes around 84 per cent of their total amount. If the access to two thirds of the coins has already been lost, then around 9 million of coins are left in the turnover, 3 million coins out of which do not yet exist.

Even if we do not take into account the possibility of losing an access to wallets in the future, it still turns out that we may face a shortage much larger, that it seems at first glance.

If bitcoin ceases to be a speculative asset and turns into one of the main reserve currencies of the world’s central banks, its total capitalization will be less correlated with the actual amount of available funds.

For instance, if now bitcoin would substitute the US dollar as the main reserve currency and its capitalization was at the level of the USA national debt, then the price of one bitcoin would be a little over $1 million. And if we take into account that the real volume of bitcoins available for turnover currently is about 6 million of coins, then bitcoin would have to have the price of $3,5 million to be compatible with US debt by capitalization.

And do you believe in the future of bitcoin? What price deems fair for the cryptocurrency number one?

If you trust in the future growth of Bitcoin or other cryptocurrencies, our monitoring ( is at your service: with our help you can easily find the best exchanging rates for any e-currency and have a safe transaction.

How Safe are Bitcoin Paper Wallets?

A bitcoin paper wallet is a public and private key printed on paper or a piece of plastic. It is an offline wallet and is referred to as a type of “cold storage”. This means that it is an extra-secure storage that is not connected to the Internet which can be hacked. Although its security can be debatable.

The piece of paper (or plastic) contains printed private and public keys, usually accompanied by QR code, which also serves as the address. You can simply copy and paste the keys onto a text document and print it out (making sure to delete the document from your PC). You can also use free online services that generate the printable wallet. The key generation is usually done in your browser, so they are not transmitted on the internet. But to be on the safe side, you are advised to clear your browser after printing. Keeping an image of the paper wallet on your computer or phone is a definite no-no.

Some paper wallet services offer a handy design that you can cut, fold and seal, making them a lightweight and relatively secure form of storing your bitcoins offline. You send your bitcoin to the public address displayed on the wallet, and then store the paper in a secure place.

The security of paper wallets stems from the fact that they are absolutely offline, and hackers cannot reach them. But, on the other hand, you need to keep this piece of paper secure to protect your funds.

There is a risk that somebody can find your printout and withdraw your funds without your knowledge. As an extra precaution measure you can fold the printout covering the private key and seal the fold with a tamper evident seal.

Also, you need to bear in mind the physical vulnerability of the material. To protect the paper wallet from water (for example, in case of flooding) you may want to keep the printout in a sealed plastic bag. But there does not seem to be a good protection against fire.

But these risks are not very likely, use common sense to keep your wallets safe the way you would jewels and ordinary cash. In general paper wallets are by far the safest option to store your digital assets.

Whatever your preferred method of storing e-currencies, you can always buy or sell your crypto money choosing the best rates at ( !

Blockchain and bitcoin based on it, as any new revolutionary technology, have their drawbacks. The mechanism of ‘proof-of-work’ consensus uses enormous volumes of electricity, cryptocurrency is used for speculations and sometimes in illegal activities.

But to say that because of that the technology faces a failure, is the same as saying in 1995 that the Internet will not work because it’s clumsy and unorganized.

Bitcoin has been living for over 10 years now despite numerous predictions of its demise. And it is constantly developing. The first cryptocurrency is no longer a “toy for geeks” as it used to be in 2009. Today Blockstream satellites allow making bitcoin transactions even without Internet.

Blockstream company which deals with bitcoin blockchain pilot projects and New Zealand developer goTenna have united their efforts to improve the project that allows sending and receiving bitcoins without Internet with the help of data translation via satellites using radio frequencies which are supported by goTenna devices.

The users will be able to receive bitcoins via satellite and goTenna Mesh network without direct connection to the Internet. If you do not like the control of the local provider or your connection is down for some reason, for example, because of a natural disaster, you will still be able to make a transaction.

With all the innovative features, this technology is quite easy to use. With an electricity generator, satellite dish, Raspberry Pi, a Wi-Fi point and the necessary software you could make global bitcoin transactions.

At first sight, it sounds rather expensive. But if you divide the expenses among people, for instance, if the whole village chips in for the purchase of the equipment, the costs are not so high. To use this service, you need a small satellite dish that uses USB port to connect to PC or specialized equipment such as Raspberry Pi. To manage connection, you can use free software with open source code, for instance GNU Radio.

And the service itself has demonstrated “excellent” uptime and its network has excess capacity to ensure reliability.

And do you still think that bitcoin does not have any future and nobody uses it?

Blockchain is not a financial pyramid.

To see this, one should understand what a financial pyramid (also called an investment pyramid) is. This is a system for receiving profit via constantly attracting money from new participants. That means the profit of the first participants is paid at the expense of funds of their followers.

It is obvious that if bitcoin does not have any dividend yield, that is, if you do not receive additional funds just because you own cryptocurrency, then bitcoin, as most of other significant cryptocurrencies, cannot be a financial pyramid by definition.

Then why such confusion? Most likely that the reason behind such a poor analogy was the poverty of intellect in most cryptocurrency critics after the events of 2017. They did not even try to learn about the principles and technologies behind cryptocurrencies but started without any reason calling them a financial pyramid. Partially they can be understood, because the previously unknown project that made it possible for people to increase their capital several times over a few months sounds very suspicious.

But what happened is that people earned profit due to the increase in the price of the active, and not because of the means of new users. Yes, to some extend it was the dramatic increase of popularity that brought about price increase, but these concepts should not be confused. Situations when demand starts to dramatically exceed supply are always accompanied by similar price increase. These can be company shares, investment fund units or even salt that can rise in price against the backdrop of false rumors. Price increase due to the growth of demand is a typical market situation, and not a disguised financial pyramid.

That being said, blockchain-based pyramids can sometimes be found, for instance, PonziCoin and Bitconnet. But these are particular cases of the misuse of the technology in creating a financial pyramid, and not vice versa.

It should be noted that there are financial pyramids that are disguised as cryptocurrency projects, only exacerbating the suspicion of inexperienced crowd. For example, they can promise profit thanks to a “unique trading robot” that multiplies your investments, or something of this kind. Of course, they have nothing to do with cryptocurrencies, and the illusion of work is maintained at expense of new client’s investments.

We hope that we have made our point clear. And what other unreasonable definitions of bitcoin have you come across? We would be happy to discuss it with you in our next articles.

Cryptocurrencies were originally envisioned as a decentralized payment means, independent of fiat money rates and not tied to traditional valuable assets.

This peculiarity adds cryptocurrencies a characteristic feature — high volatility of the rate. Many folks gain thanks to this feature, but the possibility that the rate can dramatically drop or leap hinders the usage of cryptocurrency as a full-fledge payment means.

In order to regulate the rate, it was decided to tie up cryptocurrencies to stable assets that have long been established in the economy. Thus, they began to tie up the value of cryptocurrency to fiat money, gold and oil. Digital currencies can be tied up to any valuable asset or commodity which can make their value more stable.

Cryptocurrencies pegged to physical assets have a lower rate volatility and became known as stablecoins. Stablecoins are a compromise between fiat money and cryptocurrencies. Most often, the value of a stablecoin is pegged to fiat money. The value of these coins is equal to that of fiat currency and represents a sort of a promissory note. Every coin is leveraged to one unit of fiat money, for instance, dollar, which acts as a guarantee and provides for the value of the currency.

The most popular stablecoins are:

Tether (USDT) * USD Coin (USDC) * TrueUSD (TUSD) * Paxos Standard Token (PAX) * Dai (DAI)

And what stablecoins do you use?

Did you know that in its modern form, credit card appeared back in 1949? Originally nobody took them seriously, but within the next few years they literally conquered the whole world.

The first universal credit card, which could be used at a variety of establishments, was introduced by the Diners’ Club, Inc., in 1950. Another major card of this type, known as a travel and entertainment card, was established by the American Express Company in 1958.

Today billions of people around the world use bank cards. The share of cashless payments is gradually growing, and they become a usual and more convenient method of payment.

According to statistics, for the year 2015, debit card usage accounted for 69.5 billion in payments, dwarfing all other forms of non-cash payments including credit cards (33.8 billion) and checks (17.3 billion). One new debit card is issued in the U.S. every five seconds. There were 471 million Visa debit cards in the U.S. and 1.09 billion in the rest of the world at the end of March 2015.

How many bank cards do you have? How often do you use cash?

The Amsterdam Stock Exchange is considered the oldest in the world. It was established in 1602 by the Dutch East India Company, which issued the first shares on the Amsterdam Stock Exchange. It was the first company to issue stocks and bonds and the first to formally begin trading in securities.

In the 1600's, the Dutch, French and British governments all gave charters to companies with East India in their names. At the peak of imperialism, it seemed like everyone had a share in the profits from the East Indian and Asian campaigns except the people living there. Sea trips that brought back commodities from the East were very risky - besides pirates, there were risks of weather and losing navigation.

To minimize the risk of a lost ship ruining their profits, ship owners had long been using the help of investors who would finance the trip - outfitting the ship and crew in return for a percentage of the profits if the voyage turned out a success. These early limited liability companies often lasted for only a single voyage. They were then dissolved, and a new one was created for the next trip. Investors lessened their risk by investing in several different ventures at the same time, thereby playing the odds against all of them ending in disaster.

When the East India companies formed, they changed the way business was done. These companies issued stock that would pay dividends on all the proceeds from all the voyages the companies undertook, rather than going voyage by voyage. These were the first modern joint stock companies. This allowed the companies to demand more for their shares and build larger fleets. The size of the companies, combined with royal charters forbidding competition, meant huge profits for investors.

Is a quantum computer dangerous for Bitcoin?

Many researches say that in less than 10 years сomputing machines using quantum principles will threaten blockchain technology which is a basis for cryptocurrencies.

Bitcoin and similar systems’ defense algorithm is based on a principle of asymmetric encryption with and open and private keys. Transaction is signed by a private key, and its truth is checked with a help of an open key.

Despite the fact that Bitcoin blockchain uses asymmetric encryption, the users don’t have to worry for the safety of their coins. The open key is not stored openly. Thus, the addresses for coins transferring are not open keys, but just the results of usage of hash-function SHA-256. The hashing function performs one-sided transformation and that’s why it’s stable against quantum computer attacks.

The public key is rendered to the network in the open way just until it receives a confirmation. If an attacker receives an open key during transaction, he will have around 10 minutes to get the private key with the help of a quantum computer and try to make his own transaction from the same address but specifying a larger commission.

By the way, bitcoin mining is also relevantly safe, as the equipment for mining cryptocurrencies in the near future will be more powerful that quantum computers.

It is worth to note, that quantum calculations threaten absolutely all systems of computer security which care based on cryptography with an open key, and not only blockchain. Internet connections to render your password in Internet banking uses a similar encryption technology, same as communication in chatrooms, social networks and lots of other routine actions.

All security systems, including blockchain systems, need to take into account postquantum encryption to ensure data safety. But the most simple and effective way can be changing traditional systems by such blockchain which implements quantum-resistant cryptography.

There are several different ways of encryption with open key resistant to quantum calculations: bases on matrix, on code, multidimensional quadratic functions, and hashing function. But let us not digress into detail math stories.

The main point is that if there is a serious threat to blockchain posed by quantum computer, developers can improve the protection. Moreover, successful research and developments in this regards are being done not for the first year.

What do you think, who will be the first in this race – bitcoin developers or quantum computer developers?

Sometimes it is necessary to confirm that you are the owner of this or that address. This may be required when, for instance, the seller wants a confirmation of your solvency, when recovering a hacked or lost account, or to prove that it was you who made a transfer and not somebody else.

Only owning a private key can prove your ownership of a bitcoin-address, but at the same time you cannot give away your private key: anybody with an access to it can spend your funds.

To solve this contradiction, a special function was developed – “signing a message”. When you sign a message, you can prove that you own a certain address and manage its funds. At the same time, secret information is not revealed, and no risk is posed for the funds at this address.

Creating a signature for any message is possible with lots of bitcoin-wallets. You will need to specify the address you need to confirm, and a message. The text can be of any nature, but it’s preferable it would tell something to the recipient. We advise you to always put the date and the reason of the message. If you sign any message without the specifics, somebody else might use it and pretend to be the owner of your address.
After signing the message, you can give the message with your signature to the other participant which will prove your ownership of the address. To check the signed message, it is possible to use a wallet or other resources.

Have you ever used this function? Have you heard about signing the messages for cryptocurrency wallets?

What are the Advantages of Cryptocurrency?

Over the last couple of years, cryptocurrencies gain more and more popularity. Let’s touch upon some of their main advantages in comparison to fiat money.

1. It is decentralized and does not rely on banks or governments. Transactions can take place in different parts of the world and take seconds, without the need to pay hefty charges to banks.

2. Because cryptocurrency is decentralized, it’s immune to deflation or inflation that can happen as a result of the choices of a central government.

3. Anonymity is one of the most important perks of cryptocurreny. You do not need to reveal your identity.

4. Anybody can make money through the process of mining. All what’s needed is access to a computer and the internet.

5. Because the cryptocurrency market is highly volatile it can be a high reward (but at the same time, high risk) investment.

6. Cryptocurrency is not subject to inflation. With coins like bitcoin there is a set amount that will ever be created.

7. And last but not least, since cryptocurrency exists in digital form, millions of trees can be saved by not using paper currencies. It can contribute to our environmental well-being.

You can purchase or sell cryptocurrency at BestChange – we guarantee the smoothest exchanging experience, saving your time and money!

Exactly 63 years ago on July, 30, 1956, the slogan “In God We Trust” appeared on American dollars.

Moreover, the phrase is an official motto of the USA.

The first time the motto was used in 1864 when minting 2 cent coins, but it was adopted on the national level in 1956.

Sometimes the phrase is jokingly extended to “In God We Trust, All Others Pay Cash” which shows economic attitude of Americans, and shopkeepers would use it to discourage credit.

ℹ️The cost of bitcoin transaction fell by almost 90%

BTC trades almost reached the level of the end of 2017. This is the period when the main cryptocurrency began its famous rally, the peak of which was the increase in the coin rate up to $ 20,000. According to the information of Bitinfocharts service, since that moment the cost for transactions has dropped by almost 88%. In December 2017 commission was around $10-30, and now it has fell down to $0,58 on average. It can be due to considerable popularity of processing operations of BTC transactions at the end of 2017 in comparison with today. Then up to 400 000 operations went through the network daily, when now this figure has dropped to 300 – 350 000 transactions. Another factor influencing the commission cost is the growing popularity of SegWit protocol, the share of usage of which has recently exceeded 60 per cent.

ℹ️Transparent Volume experts: Only 17% of bitcoin transactions do not raise suspicion

According to the new service Transparent Volume of the Nomics cryptocompany, the majority of transactions with the main cryptocoin are suspicious. The experts say that only 17% of BTC operations can be considered genuine. Around 35% of transactions are evaluated within the range from “satisfactory” to “bad”. The total amount of such operations today has reached $3,99 billion.

Transparent Volume is created to monitor the circulation of digital asses between different platforms. It works in real time. Nomics believes that usage of Transparent Volume will help users obtain full and objective information about current trade volumes. The service positions itself as a platform whose work is associated with lesser risk of recording information about fictitious transactions and other misleading facts.

There are prospects: forecasts of digital currency market participants

This week was full of various events for both participants of the cryptocurrency industry as well observers. Here are some expert comments on the current development of the digital asset market.

On Monday Yves Mersch, Member of the Executive Board of the European Central Bank (ECB) criticized Facebook’s Libra.”Libra could reduce the ECB’s control over the euro, impair the monetary policy transmission mechanism by affecting the liquidity position of euro area banks, and undermine the single currency’s international role” . The official has also noted that Facebook’s cryptocoin will in fact be accountable to shareholders, raising trust issues, as it will not be backed by a central bank. Mersch called on regulators to take tight control over Facebook’s projects, and for users not to trust the tempting but questionable promises from the representatives of the American company.
Meanwhile, Jack Dorsey, the head of Square payment start-up and Twitter co-founder, continues to insist that cryprtocurrencies will continue to spread. The businessman believes in bitcoin, but he thinks that it is still too early to call it currency. In one of his latest interviews Dorsey notes, that bitcoin’s rises and falls in prices are more characteristic of a investment asset, such as gold. He hopes that as soon as the cryptocurrency becomes the currency of the Internet, his own start-up will pay more attention to services that create added value, rather than those that are engaged in money transfer

Mark Mobius, an investor in developing markets and Mobius Capital Partners founder said that gold-backed cryptocurrency can be an interesting phenomenon. The investor emphasized that there is a whole generation of people who have faith in the internet, and they have faith in cryptocurrencies.
“People believe in dollar because they have faith that with dollars in their hands they can buy something. Crypto enables people to buy something merely because they believe it has value”, Mobius said.

In the beginning of the week trader Peter Brandt tweeted that bitcoin has entered the fourth cycle of the parabolic uptrend that could lead it significantly past its all-time high price. The analyst is confident that the price of Bitcoin will reach one hundred thousand dollars in the long run. And although this bold prognosis does not yet have lots of supporters, one can’t ignore the fact that the price of the main cryptocoin is showing steady growth since Monday.

According to Coinmarketcap, by September,6, bitcoin rose in price up to $10 875, starting from the mark of $9 623 on the night of September,2.

Largest chain of convenience stores in Lithuania will promote bitcoins

Narvesen chain (60 stores) and Lietuvos Spauda kiosks in Lithuania are launching the sale of bitcoin vouchers that can be exchanged online into real bitcoins. A person will not need any ID for that, they will only need to provide their email address and the address of their cryptocurrency wallet.

This project is aimed at simplifying the possibility to buy Bitcoins, even for those who have never done that. Narvesen stores and Lietuvos Spauda kiosks have been chosen for that purpose due to their popularity among Lithuanians and positive attitude to cryptocurrencies, and their clients is a necessary targeted audience.

Head of BitMEX crypto exchange is confident in explosive growth of BTC

Arthur Hayes, CEO of cryptocurrency derivatives platform BitMEX is confident that the main crypto coin will once again reach the mark of $20, 000. Crypto enthusiast thinks that will happen because of pumping the economy with newly-printed money which will lead to the loss of interest to fiat money.

Hayes believes that The US Federal Reserve will restart quantitative easing policy. Last week the European Central Bank launched the program and decreased the deposit rate down to a new historical minimum.

Analysts: Payment companies will have to look for new development options

Analysts of the consulting firm Bain & Company are confident that the payment market will soon change dramatically, as mentioned in their last report. Payment operations will cease to be a separate specialization. Digital wallets will grow in popularity among regular users.

“Payments will become free for users and, in the end, for retailers, they will be instant and embedded into other products and services. Cars and fridges, and not people, will be able to place automated orders for replenishing supplies”, - experts think.

Industry innovations will push the payment systems to search for original ways for development. Only this way they will be able to meet competition and tap into new markets.

The market of popular crypto currencies is still in the “red zone”

During the last day the price of bitcoin was gradually growing. However, the crypto coin, as well as the other top-10 tokens, has not yet left the “red zone” of the market. According to Coinmarketcap, at 15:00 CET, the first crypto coin’s price was $9,690.

Market players have different opinions in this regard. Some insist that they hope for the prospect of BTC growth. Others say that there are no drivers for growing in price yet, and the price fluctuations are strictly speculative in nature.

During the last 24 hours, Ethereum dropped more than by 6%, having reached $197. Litecoin has demonstrated the most dramatic drop (-9.23%), having fallen down to $66.

Opinion: BTC is now more stable than a year ago

Alex Krüger, the famous cryptocurrency trader, expressed an opinion that currently the position of the first cryptocurrency is much more stable than it was in 2018. Then, the average trading BTC rate was at the level of $6,400, and this year the crypto coin has managed to get over the $10,000 mark.

The crypto enthusiast believes that the BTC rate growth signals the average increase of crypto coin’s popularity. The gradual adoption of bitcoin is also indicated by the fact that 25 thousand retailers in France, for instance, the Sephora network, plan to accept the first cryptocurrency. It is scheduled to happen already in the beginning of the following year.

Nigerian government official paid $15K ransom in Bitcoin

In a publication for Daily Trust, Nigerian government official Dr. Umar Ardo said the criminals made him pay a $15,000 ransom in bitcoin to release his kidnapped daughter.

Last week, Dr. Ardo’s daughter Amado was kidnapped at a gunpoint around a shopping center. What strikes about this incident is that it is for the first time in history that criminals demand payment in cryptocurrency.

Why in bitcoin? Investigators believe the criminals requested the ransom to be paid in bitcoin to remain anonymous and escape penalty, since blockchain transactions are completely anonymous.

Sadly, incidents like these cast a shadow at the refutation of cryptocurrencies. Despite the indisputable advantages of blockchain technology, many leaders have voiced concern regarding anonymity connected with that.ndustry innovations will push the payment systems to search for original ways for development. Only this way they will be able to meet competition and tap into new markets.

Ex-CFTC Chair: we deliberately collapsed bitcoin

Christopher Giancarlo, former chairman of the US Commodity Futures Trading Commission said that the Treasury and the SEC are responsible for bitcoin’s drop in price after reaching its historical minimum in December 2017.

"We saw a bubble building and we thought the best way to address it was to allow the market to interact with it."

Giancarlo said that the US Treasury and SEC decided to collapse the BTC price to prevent the bubble from reaching the dangerous size for the economy. In their time regulators overlooked the beginning of the 2008 financial crisis, that’s why in 2017 they took preventive steps.

Will China buy all the bitcoins?

Xi Jinping, General Secretary of the People’s Republic of China, called for more efforts to advance development in the field of blockchain technologies, which lead to a frenzy in the world of cryptocurrency. For instance, after Xi’s speech, the search volume in the app WeChat for hashtags “Blockchain” and “Bitcoin” increased 12 and 2 fold correspondingly, and Chinese cryptocoins saw a dramatic price boost during the last weekend. For instance, TRX surged by 50%, and Neo almost doubled its value, having fixed it at a little over $11 for a coin.

Against the background of this frenzy, some people saw China's growing interest in cryptocurrencies as a threat. One of them is Anthony Pompiliano, who tweeted: “Someone tell President Donald Trump that there are only 21 million Bitcoin and China is planning to buy them all. This is going to be the real US – China competition. That should get him to pay attention. The guy hates losing and will try to buy them all.”

However, despite this tweet was supported by many people, the majority favor a different opinion on forums dedicated to cryptocurrencies: “If China buys all bitcoins in free circulations, it will acquire nothing more than a large number of empty “candy wrappers”, because, as cryptocurrency owners think “in this outcome the interest to bitcoin will evaporate, and the demand for it will drop to zero”

Crypto Capital Principal indicted

According to court documents, presented to the accused by the Attorney of the Southern District of New York, Crypto Capital Pricnipal Oz Yosef was planning to transfer $ 10,000,000 to a bank located in the Bahamas for the purpose of misappropriation, which falls under the article on bank fraud.

During the investigation, the company’s funds were frozen. It must be noted that $880 of these funds belonged to Bitfinex cryptocurrency exchange.

51 % attack in BCash chain

For a day, in the interval between October 24-25, one or several miners controlled half of all computing power used for mining Bitcoin Cash. During this time the unknown perpetrator(s) managed to mine 73 blocks.

Actions of one whale could influence on bitcoin surge in 2017 and Stellar has destroyed 55 billion of their token

Bitcoin price surge of 2017 could be fueled by one whale

The University of Texas has published research which shows that a whale was buying a large amount of BTC during drawdowns and additional emission of USDT. It is important that such a “scheme” was used only on the Bitfinex exchange.

Connection between bitcoin growth and USDT have been discussed before. TokenAnalyst experts have already noted an incredible coincidence between bitcoin pump and Tether emission. However, it was believed earlier that this had been caused by actions of lots of independent traders.

A group of researchers analyzed all BTC and USDT transaction between March, 1, 2017 and March, 31, 2018 and came to a conclusion that it had been one large player. At the same time, no similar pattern was detected on other exchanges.

It should be understood that Bitfinex controlled over 20% of the market in 2017-2018, and it is only by 2019 that the exchange’s market share dropped to 7,3%.

Stellar burst into the top 10 cryptocurrencies after destroying 55 billion tokens

Stellar team reported destroying 55 billion of tokens. They took this decision after analyzing the plan of blockchain implementation. The coins that got destroyed were mainly the ones for airdrop (out of 43,5 billion only 6 remained), as well as operational fund (out of 16 billion, 11 remained) and affiliate programs (12 billion out of 25).

This was announced at Meridian conference in Mexico, Stellar Development Foundation announced the burning and in two hours the token rate increased by 16% from $0,069 to 0,083. Currently, correction took place and Stellar’s price is $0.0806.

The developers said that no further coin burning is planned. In total, 55 billion (worth of $4 billion) of XML were destroyed.

When the exchange was registered its management provided judicial evidence of possessing assets to satisfy all withdrawal requests, however refused to provide the location of the funds.

Currently the office of the exchange is closed, there is no access to their website and investigators cannot establish the location of Michael Ongun Gokturk, the exchange founder. The pages of the exchange in social networks are buried under complaints of dissatisfied customers.

Bitfinex tranferred $1 billion in BTC, and why it is too late to buy BTC

Bitfinex exchange transferred $1 billion in BTC with $80 commission

Cryptocurrency platform Bitfinex confirmed that it was them who made the mysterious transfer of 123,447 BTC (around $1,1 billion) registered by bitcoin enthusiasts. According to the company’s CTO Paolo Ardoino, the transaction was a part of a transfer of 150 thousand BTC to the platform’s hot wallet.

As a result of this operation, the second largest bitcoin address has emerged. It should be noted that the commission for the transfer of $1 B was just $80.

Why it’s too late to buy bitcoin now

In the near future bitcoin’s price will not longer increase, BK Capital Management’s co-found Brian Kelly thinks. He notes that
the growth rate of addresses in the network lags behind bitcoin’s price increase.

"The Bitcoin price got a little bit ahead of the address growth. So, just like I said about Apple, just like I said about the 'triple Qs' in 2000. When an asset goes straight up, that's means a lot of the news is priced in", — he explains.

According to Kelly, back in December the situation was the opposite, when the BTC price was on a decline, the number of addresses continued to increase. He adds that this was a strong buy signal that turned out to be spot-on.

It turned out that bitcoin’s price had a tendency to be at its lowest point of the week on Fridays at around 6 AM UTC, and Monday evening/Tuesday morning at midnight UTC the price is on average $170 higher than on Friday morning.

The researchers note that Monday to Tuesday night institutional traders from Asia, America and Europe open long positions. On Friday, market participants seek to take profits before the weekend.

 Craig Wright says he owns rights to Bitcoin

Craig Wright, the self-proclaimed Bitcoin creator, demanded that Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash networks stop using the distributed registry, which, he said, belongs to him.

Wright said he would protect his intellectual rights to the first cryptocurrency’s blockchain in court.

“As the creator of Bitcoin, I maintain the sui generis rights to any copy of the database created from Genesis in January 2009. I shall not be relinquishing the ownership. I will be licensing it, and have already engaged in a process.”

He pointed out that only Bitcoin SV has a right to use a distributed registry, while Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash do it illegally.

Whales buy bitcoin, and Binance can not cope with the influx of customers

 Research: whales are buying bitcoin

Analysts at the Kraken exchange found that in February, major holders of bitcoin (100-1,000 BTC) became much more active. According to the report, the previous phase of the accumulation of coins by whales led to an increase in the exchange rate in January of this year. A similar relationship was observed in 2018-2019.

“We anticipate accumulation to conclude in the weeks/months ahead and volatility to re-emerge”, experts say.

There are also“smaller” investors who own amounts between 0.1-1 BTC - over the year their number increased by around 10%. However, the largest coin holders (over 1,000 BTC) are still employing “wait-and-see” tactics, analysts say.

 Binance performance issues caused by an influx of users

Last week, customers of one of the largest cryptocurrency websites Binance encountered the website’s performance issues.

CEO Changpeng Zhao said that the problems were caused by an influx of users an increased load on the system. Zhao links the influx of customers with bitcoin’s price returning to $10,000.

“The difference between BTC at $10,000 this time around and the previous times is, there are a lot more users now. While this is a solid sign of strong recovery for the crypto market, it also puts on significant load for our systems,” the Binance CEO wrote.

 CelticGold encourages investing in bitcoin

Another major investment company recommends its customers to invest part of their funds in bitcoin.

CelticGold specializes in precious metals trading. The company’s analysts published a report in which they had revealed the advantages of cryptocurrencies and recommended that investors allocate 1-5% of their portfolio into bitcoin.

“If you are very familiar with cryptocurrencies and Bitcoin, you can individually allocate higher percentages to Bitcoin. For the average investor, who is also invested in equities and real estate, 5% in the highly speculative and highly volatile Bitcoin is already a lot!”

CelticGold experts add that BTC is a safe haven asset, as it is not managed by central banks and governments. In addition, the number of coins is limited, and regulators cannot print new ones.

China suggests banning cryptocurrencies, and Craig Wright seriously plans to seize all BTC

 China proposes to ban cryptocurrencies and ICOs

Chinese authorities must tighten control over the crypto sphere after the launch of the digital yuan, Chen Weigang, former Vice President of China Insurance Regulatory Commission of the Communist Party, said.

According to him, the cryptocurrency circulation and ICO should be banned.

“I always believe that speculation in cryptocurrency and ICO is not the direction of financial development and must be resolutely banned. They must be completely banned,” — the ex-official said.

He added that banks need to be prohibited from the opportunity to conduct any transactions with cryptocurrency.

 Craig Wright plans to seize bitcoins through miners

Craig Wright, an Australian scientist and self-proclaimed creator of Bitcoin, is serious about seizing all existing coins through the courts.

Podcaster Peter McCormack published screenshots of Slack messages where Wright writes that the first BTC seizures will begin as early as 2020. Private keys won’t be required for this, since the court will order the nodes to return the bitcoins to their rightful owner, that is, Craig Wright.

“Without keys, BTC will be confiscated. Code is law, and courts can mandate patching code. Bitcoin is not encrypted. It is economic,” — the scientist writes.

He also requested data from companies including MtGox, that lost coins. Wright promised them to "return the money starting this year."

 13,000 ATM’s in South Korea to support Litecoin withdrawal

Litecoin Foundation has partnered up with MeconCash, to enable Litecoin withdrawals to Korean Wonat over 13,000 ATM’s across South Korea.

Cryptocurrency will be integrated into the M.Pay platform, which allows to make transfers around the country, buy goods, pay for mobile applications and other services.

Litecoin Foundation Director Alan Austin noted that the partnership will contribute to the spread of cryptocurrency in South Korea:

“The ability to access cash through Litecoin at over 13,000 ATM’s opens the door to new opportunities within the Korean market and globally. With billions in remittances sent each year to South Korea, Litecoin (through its speed, security, and low transaction fees) offers significant advantages over traditional methods of sending money overseas,” — he said.

CoinMetrics analyst Nate Maddrey noted that 42% of bitcoins stay the wallets of their owners since June 2017.

In addition, since January last year, investors have been actively building crypto portfolios. A similar situation was observed in mid-2017, by the end of which Bitcoin made the famous rally and set a price record at $20,000. According to representatives of the crypto community, at this moment the price of BTC is being prepared for a new leap.

However, it should be noted that about 4 million coins are permanently lost and physically unable to move.

 Trading volumes at LocalBitcoins hit a 7-year low

In 2019, LocalBitcoins introduced new user verification rules in order to comply with the KYC/AML requirements of the Finnish law where the exchange is located. In January, at the request of the EU, the platform also restricted access to several African countries.

South Korea legalizes cryptocurrencies, and the US may issue a digital currency after China

 Opinion: the US will issue digital currency after China

The US authorities are closely monitoring the development of Chinese digital yuan and, if necessary, will launch their own digital currency, according to ING economist Carlo Cocuzzo.

During a presentation at Blockchain Week in London, Cocuzzo said that 90% of forex turnover is in dollars, and the United States will not want to lose leadership. If the Federal Reserve considers that it is necessary to issue digital USD as opposed to the Chinese currency, it will immediately do so.

In August last year, representatives of the People's Bank of China announced that the digital yuan will be launched soon, with the prototype and blockchain architecture of the token having been already been fully developed.

 South Korea legalized cryptocurrencies

The South Korean authorities have adopted amendments to the legislation of the country, which legalize trading and storing of cryptocurrency.

For their launch they only need to be signed by the president. The government will be given a year to implement the changes, and representatives of the blockchain industry will be given 6 months to bring their activities in line with the new requirements.

Cryptocurrency exchanges, ICO projects and other blockchain companies will fall under regulation. They will be required to comply with financial reporting requirements, use real bank accounts, follow KYC procedures and certify information security management systems (ISMS).

 [Censored word] CEO: the number of cryptocurrency users will grow 100-fold

The adoption of the blockchain will be similar to the spread of the Internet, Armstrong wrote in his Twitter account. In his opinion, a cryptocurrency that wants to become a world leader must meet four requirements: scalability, privacy, decentralized identity, and developer tools.

The primary goal is scalability, the businessman believes — the network must process thousands of transactions per second.

Bitcoin went up by 23% in 24 hrs, and the Ethereum hashrate may drop by 30%

 Bitcoin went up by 23% in 24 hours

The crypto market has started recovering: total market cap has grown by 19% over the past 24 hours.

Over the past week, the trading activity at the LocalBitcoins p2p platform has increased by 21% — this is the largest jump since the summer of 2019.

The main contribution was made by Peru, Chile, Venezuela, Argentina, Egypt, Japan. Moreover, the latter three countries hit all-time-high weekly fiat trade volumes The situation occurs against the background of coronavirus quarantine. For example, banks closed in Venezuela yesterday, which caused an influx of users to cryptocurrency platforms.

 Opinion: Ethereum hashrate to drop by 30%

Most of the mining devices for mining ETH will soon become useless due to the increasing DAG size, developer Kristy-Leigh Minehan says.

This can lead to a sharp drop by 20-30% in the computing power of Ethereum which will make the network vulnerable to reorganization attacks, and also complicate the work of decentralized applications, she said.

Before work, each mining device must download a DAG file, which increases every 30,000 blocks. Currently, its size is 3.52 GB, which no longer allows mining ETH on Nvidia GTX 1060 3 GB graphics cards. According to a blog post by 2miners, the popular ASIC Antminer E3 will become should stop mining as early as April 8th due to the file size growth.

The U.S. Federal Reserve says they have “infinite amount of cash” — what’s the impact on bitcoin?

 Why BTC will drop to $5,000

A “death cross" formed on the BTC price, a top-down intersection of 50-day and 200-day Moving Average. This will lead to a price drop down to $5,000, Coindesk analyst Omkar Godbole thinks.

However, the drop will not happen immediately: for example, in the spring of 2018 the “cross”, bitcoin price first went up by 50% in a month, and then declined by 70% within six months.

The scenario will be cancelled if BTC can consolidate above $6,460, the analyst writes. Godbole also notes that similar crosses are forming on the Dow Jones Industrial Average and S&P 500 industrial charts.

 Peter Brandt: Bitcoin price will drop by 50%

Well-known trader Peter Brandt believes that BTC will drop below $3,000. Responding to a comment on Twitter, Brandt posted a chart with a “descending flag” figure - if implemented, the price will go to the level of $2,700.

The trader also indicated that having declined below $7,500, bitcoin price broke the long-term support line and moved into a downtrend. Earlier, the analyst said that bitcoin will drop to zero after breaking this level.

 Opinion: cryptocurrency will benefit from the crisis

Unlimited amount of U.S. dollars will positively affect bitcoin, trader Joseph Young believes.

“Fed printing unlimited money to pump markets = good for bitcoin

Devaluation of dollar over the long term = good for bitcoin

Short-term may be gloomy for bitcoin, but long-term prospect of it remains very bright,” Young tweeted.

A similar opinion is shared by Stack analyst Lennard Neo. He expects an influx of capital into cryptocurrencies due to the uncertainty central banks and governments actions amid the crisis.

CEO of Titus Investment Advisors Justin Gillespie notes that quarantine will strengthen the position of cryptocurrency. According to him, “The longer the people can’t go outside to conduct their business, the more useful the cryptocurrency should become as it can be sent and received from the safety of one’s home."

Cash and сoronavirus: how to stay safe when dealing with banknotes and bank cards

During the pandemic, when it is of the utmost importance to be very careful about your health and follow good hygiene practice, BestChange team wishes to remind you the necessary precautionary measures when dealing with cash and bank cards.

We already wrote that cash is one of the dirtiest things in the world and a carrier of many diseases. Various microbes live on the banknotes for quite a long time – from one up to two months. Paper money has a lot of cellulose which is the perfect media for the development of bacteria. Plastic and metal money have much fewer microorganisms, and their life is much shorter.

Speaking about COVID-19 specifically, the virus stays up to 5 days on metal materials, 4 days on wood and glass. Paper exposed to coronavirus remained safe after 4-5 days, and the virus stays on plastic for no more than 5 days.

Besides coronavirus, many other bacteria can be found on banknotes: causing skin inflammation, microorganisms associated with the vaginal tract, Escherichia coli and staphylococcal bacteria can be found – they cause intestinal diseases. Besides bacteria, fungi spores and helminthiasis (simply put, worm infections) pathogens can be found on money.

Many infectious disease specialists around the world approve of decreasing the usage of cash in favor of contactless. However, please keep in mind that the direct contact between the bank card and the terminal or touching the terminal when pressing the PIN can be also dangerous in terms of contracting the infection.

We would like to remind you recommendations of WHO: wash your hands, do not touch your face when using cash. WHO does not say that cash must be totally avoided, but theoretically, it can be a channel to contract the virus.

Please remember, that the notion “dirty money” has a real basis behind it and before biting into a snack you have just purchased with some cash, remember what is at stake. Always thoroughly wash your hands or sanitize them after being in contact with cash or touching any surfaces in public spaces, including ATMs.

Modern problems require modern solutions, electronic money and cryptocurrency get another advantage as a safer payment means of the future.

BestChange team asks everyone to follow the advice of doctors and professionals, take care of yourself and your close ones and keep your spirits up!

Cash turnover hits record high in the U.S. and altcoins mentions on Twitter drop to a minimum

 USD banknote turnover hits a 20-year high

From March 11 to March 18, the turnover of cash dollars in the United States increased by $34 billion, shooting up from $1.809 trillion to $1.843 trillion.

This is the largest growth in the last 20 years, economist John Paul Coning points out: the U.S. citizens are withdrawing money from banks amid the coronavirus epidemic. Last time a similar situation was observed in 1999 when people were afraid of digital devices failure due to the "Y2K bug"

It is noteworthy that the current increase in cash circulation is happening despite the WHO recommendations to avoid contact with banknotes, as COVID-19 can be distributed through them.

 Twitter's altcoin mentions drop to a minimum

Twitter users now write about main altcoins less often - the number of mentions per day has dropped to a three-year low.

The number of posts about XRP has decreased by 60% in two months to 2,542. Ethereum was talked about slightly less — the number of tweets with the hashtag #ETH fell to 2,500, which has become the lowest engagement level since February 2017. For comparison: in December 2017, when the altcoin set a maximum price, the number of tweets about it exceeded 51,000.

Bitcoin’s “little brother” LTC has been completely forgotten —Twitter users mentioned the coin only 350 times a day. The popularity of BTC, on the contrary, has grown, its mentions have doubled since the end of January.

 Small miners shutting off will help the price of bitcoin

Blockware CEO Matt D’Souza said. He analyzed the periods of decline of the network’s hash rate and noted that they were followed by a prolonged increase of cryptocurrency price. In his opinion, now the situation may be repeated.

At the moment, the computing power of the BTC blockchain has dropped to 93 EH/s. In mid-March, when the bitcoin exchange rate sank below $4,000, small miners were forced to turn off the equipment, which led to a sharp drop in the hash rate and the difficulty of mining cryptocurrency.

Matt D’Souza notes that this will benefit the price of bitcoin, as private miners quickly sold their coins to not work at a loss.

Miners will start to switch off after the halving, and Bitstamp plans to expand its listing

 Some miners will stop working after the halving

States a report by an analytic company Coin Metrics. Despite the fact that Bitcoin price has recovered to the level of $6,300, for many miners the breakeven point is higher than that.

“We expect miners to follow a cycle of decreased profit margins, increased selling, capitulation, and a culling of the least efficient miners from the network. Once this cycle is complete, the miner industry should return to a healthier state that is supportive of future price increases,” the analysts say,

Last week, Bitcoin mining complexity fell by a record 16%, according to forecasts, after the next eight-day cycle, it will decrease by another 12%. This will also reduce the profitability of mining for inefficient equipment, according to Coin Metrics.

 Bitstamp may launch trading Ethereum Classic, Zcash and Stellar

Bitstamp, one of the first European cryptocurrency exchanges, is considering listing Ethereum Classic (ETC), Stellar Lumens (XLM), Zcash (ZEC), Basic Attention Token (BAT), Paxos Standard (PAX), USD Coin (USDC) and 0x (ZRX).

The platform’s specialists will thoroughly study the technical characteristics of these cryptocurrencies, as well as their compliance with the security requirements of the exchange and the legislation of some countries. It is worth noting that Bitstamp is extremely cautious about listing coins. Currently, only five crypto assets are traded on the platform: Bitcoin, Ethereum, XRP, Litecoin and Bitcoin Cash.

 Cryptocurrency trading volume on exchanges increased by 60%

Trade turnover at 22 popular crypto platforms grew by 61% in Q1 of 2020, according to the report of The Block media.

In the last quarter of 2019, the figure was $96 billion, and currently, it has increased to $154 billion — almost the same level as in Q3 of last year.

The volume of transactions in the Bitcoin network increased by 11% to $ 178 billion, while the amount of commissions remained virtually unchanged at $20.12 million. The average BTC block size has slightly increased: from 1.14 MB to 1.17 MB. In January, the share of SegWit transfers exceeded 70%, and the number of public Lightning channels increased by 3%.

 Bitcoin has gone up to $7,000

BTC price today has gone over the mark of $7,100 —over the past 24 hours, cryptocurrency has strengthened by 5%.

Since March 13, bitcoin has grown in price by more than 80%. Most of the crypto assets from TOP-20 also added in value: Stellar (11.69%), TRON (9.51%) and Ethereum (6.42%) have demonstrated the highest growth.

Earlier we noted that the capitalization of the USDT stablecoin exceeded $6 billion for the first time. A number of analysts attribute the increase of the number of Tether tokens to the rise in bitcoin price.

 ETH exchange balance reaches its maximum since 2016

Since the end of last year, the volume of ethereum stored on trading platforms has increased by 21% to 18.187 million ETH.

According to Glassnode, this is the highest level since December 2016 and it accounts for 16% of all circulating coins. Interestingly, the indicator is inversely correlated with the price of ETH. Thus, for 12 months from December 2016, Ethereum has risen in price from $6 to $ 1,350 — at the same time, the cryptocurrency exchange balance has decreased from 18 to 8 million coins.

On March 13, the ETH price fell to $95, which was the lowest since December 2018. Now the coin is trading near the $154 mark.

The night before halving, the coin went up from $251 to $275, but today it has again dropped in price to $257. In about 12 hours, halving of Bitcoin SV, another fork of the first cryptocurrency, will happen.

The number of addresses in the Ethereum network has reached 70 million, the Glassnode service draws attention.The figure began to sharply grow in November 2017 before the coin set a price record of $1,300. Since that time, the cost of ETH was mostly falling and today it is $171. Despite this, the number of addresses has increased 8.2 times since November 2017. The number of active addresses in March was about 230 thousand - the figure correlates with the price of ethereum.

 China has published a new cryptocurrency rating

Bitcoin is only ranked 14th in the rating. BTC has lost three more positions, giving way to Cosmos (ATOM), Stellar (XLM) and Dash. TOP 3 remains the same since the February ranking: EOS is in the first place, followed by TRON and Ethereum. Lisk, IOST, NULS, Qtum, NEO, XLM and Dash are in top ten. This is already the seventeenth evaluation made by the China-based Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (CCID). Projects are evaluated on three parameters: basic technology, applicability and creativity.

BTC and S&P 500 correlation hit a nine-year high

Bitcoin price and the S&P 500 index have been changing most correlated for 9 years, said eToro analyst Mati Greenspan. The correlation of the prices of the two assets reached 0.6, whereas before it did not exceed 0.3 - with a value of 1, the charts move completely identically. The analyst explained this by the coronavirus pandemic. Bitcoin is still considered a risk asset and hasnt achieved the safe haven status that gold has taken thousands of years to build up, Greenspan summed up. However, he added that the profitability of BTC is still higher than the stock market: since the beginning of the year, BTC added 7% in price, while at the same time, the price of oil collapsed to the levels of the 2000s.

Opinion: only large miners will survive halving

Representatives of the mining industry believe that only large and effective miners will remain after the halving. F2Pool co-founder Wang Chun said that due to a decrease in rewards from 12.5 BTC to 6.25 BTC, unprofitable operators could be absorbed by larger players. A similar position was expressed by Alejandro de la Torre, Poolin Vice President. In his opinion, miners using old equipment will have to disconnect after halving. The head of New Mine, Ibrahim Alkurd, noted that one should not hope for a rise in the price of bitcoin after halving. Miners hoping that the BTC price will jump up after halving the block reward, making their operations profitable, are in trouble, he said. Wang Chun added that after halving, those farms will stay that are capable of mining bitcoin at a cost of $3,500.

The balance of bitcoins on exchanges fell to a minimum

The number of BTC that users store on exchanges has dropped to a 6-month minimum. According to Glassnode, the current balance is 2.36 million coins. The indicator has been declining since March 13, when the price of bitcoin fell below $4,000. At the same time, the network activity has grown to record levels since 2017.

 Ex-President of Bank of China: digital yuan will replace cash

The digital version of yuan, which is already being tested by the Chinese authorities, may completely replace cash in the future, said Li Lihui, the former President of the Bank of China. He noted that unlike traditional currencies, CDBC will not depend on a third-party bank or payment system. In this case, the virtual currency must meet four key conditions: “Whether the digital yuan can become the dominant form of currency and mainstream payment means, depends on whether it has greater efficiency, lower transaction costs, enough economic scale with commercial value, and people’ acceptance,” said the former President of Bank of China. He added that CDBC will have anonymity, like Bitcoin, but the regulator will set limits on the number and frequency of operations without confirming the identity.

 The profit of miners fell by 44%. Halving is to blame

Daily earnings of miners fell from $16 to $9 million after halving on May 12. Obsolete equipment, for example, Antminer S9, has now become unprofitable. At the same time, the bitcoin hash rate fell by 16%, and the block mining time increased to 10 minutes 32 seconds. The problem should be fixed by a correction of complexity, which is expected in 5 days. The estimated difficulty will decrease by 2%.

 Pavel Durov announces the closure of the TON crypto project

Pavel Durov, co-founder of VK social network and Telegram messenger, announced the closure of the Telegram Open Network blockchain project. The reason, he said, is the decision of the American court. "Unfortunately, a US court stopped TON from happening. How? Imagine that several people put their money together to build a gold mine – and to later split the gold that comes out of it. Then a judge comes and says: 'These people invested in the gold mine because they were looking for profits. And they didn't want that gold for themselves, they wanted to sell it to other people. Because of this, they are not allowed to get the gold," Durov wrote. He noted that the court banned the use of GRAM cryptocurrency in the whole world since a US citizen can get access to it. According to the businessman, this is a paradox decision, because it implies control of the American authorities over the sovereignty of other countries. “Unfortunately, we – the 96% of the world's population living elsewhere – are dependent on decision makers elected by the 4% living in the US,” concluded Durov. The businessman said that his team is stopping work on the platform and urged not to be fooled by fraudsters using the name of the project.

 Andreessen Horowitz: the cryptocurrency market is growing randomly but steadily

Venture Fund Andreessen Horowitz from Silicon Valley has analyzed the cryptocurrency market and came to the conclusion that it has been showing a “choppy yet consistent growth” since 2010. Experts studied four metrics: the price of bitcoin, activity in social networks, developer activity and startup activity. All four parameters showed positive cumulative annual growth rates. The company noted the importance of the 2017 cycle, which became the reason for the launch of “dozens of interesting projects” from various business areas. “Even though crypto cycles look chaotic, over the long term they’ve generated steady growth of new ideas, code, projects, and startups — the fundamental drivers of software innovation. Technologists and entrepreneurs will continue to push crypto forward in the coming years. We are excited to see what they build,” Andreessen Horowitz concluded.

 Miner hackers attacked supercomputers

Last week, a number of supercomputers from the UK, Germany, Switzerland and Spain were attacked by crypto miners. The University of Edinburgh, Leibniz Computing Center, the Bavarian Academy of Sciences, the Swiss Center for Scientific Computing are among the victims. Experts from Cado Security examined samples of malicious code and concluded that hackers gained access through compromised user data and SSH keys. There is no official evidence that the attacks were carried out by one group of attackers, but Cado Security pointed to similar virus file names and network identifiers.

 Cardano creator: misinformation prevents bitcoin from spreading

Cardano founder and Ethereum co-founder Charles Hoskinson suggested that bitcoin is misunderstood due to the abundance of false information and fears. “I started with Bitcoin and started with something called the Bitcoin education project. The goal there was to try to bring as many people as possible into our ecosystem and to also dispel a lot of the common myths, fear, uncertainty, disinformation, and misnomers and things that have been cropping up. In 2013, there was certainly a lot of them, and unfortunately today there’s even more,” the businessman said. Hoskinson created a 40-minute video in which he explained the essence of the first cryptocurrency and called for similar actions by all industry participants. The reason was the tweet by the writer Joan Rowling, who asked to tell her what Bitcoin is. Having received many answers, including from Ilon Mask and Vitalik Buterin, the author of Harry Potter books has not understood the idea of cryptocurrency and expressed her disappointment.

 Bitcoin whales withdraw 17,000 BTC over a few hours

Large holders of bitcoin in several transactions withdrew 17,320 BTC (about $169.4 million) from several exchanges, the Whale Alert service noticed. First, 5,000 BTC was sent from Bitfinex to an unknown address. Then 3,058 BTC was transferred from an account on Binance exchange; 2,645 BTC were moved from OKEx in two transactions. A little later, another 3,164 BTC were withdrawn from OKEx, and 1,593 BTC from [Censored word]. The senders and recipients are unknown; all transfers were made during the evening and night of May 19. Twitter users have suggested that whales accumulate coins on the verge of the upcoming Bitcoin price increase.

 Bitcoin price drops to 0 on BitMEX

On May 19, the BTC/ USD price collapsed to zero at BitMEX, one of the largest crypto derivatives trading sites. After that, the platform suspended trading for several hours. Representatives of the exchange did not explain whether there was a real deal at the rate of $0, or whether it was a technical malfunction. BitMEX said that “all funds are safe”, now the website is working as usual. The other day, a lawsuit was filed against BitMEX, among other accusations, the exchange was accused of price manipulation and fraud.

 Bitcoin mining difficulty decreases by 6%

On the morning of May 20, the first change in the complexity of mining Bitcoin took place after the recent halving — the indicator fell by 6%. The reason lies in the hashrate falling after halving the block reward. Now outdated equipment can once again generate revenue at the cost of electricity below $0.05 kW/h. In some provinces of China, due to the rainy season, tariffs for miners have been reduced to $0.03 kWh/h. This may prompt miners who have switched off, to return to cryptocurrency mining, according to Alejandro De La Torre, vice president of the PoolIn mining pool. According to, in two weeks, complexity may decrease by another 6.3%. In early March, the indicator updated its historical maximum, but after the collapse of the exchange rate to $4,000 at the end of the month, it fell by 15.95%.

 Bitcoin Cash is at risk of an attack of 51%

The Bitcoin Cash network lost 30% of hashrate after bitcoin halving - this makes it vulnerable to 51% attack, according to Yassin Elmanjra, analyst at ARK Invest.

“Bitcoin Cash is not looking healthy:

-Hashrate down 30% since halving (& only accounts for ~2% of SHA256 hash)
-Economic throughput at all time lows
-Fees are .05% of miner rev (<$100/day)
-Theoretical 51% attack costs <$10k/hr, ” Yassin tweeted.

He added that he was surprised why the capture of 51% of the cryptocurrency capacities has not yet been implemented. According to the crypto51 service, the cost of such an attack is $8,800 per hour.

 Investors accumulate Ethereum

On May 24, two records were updated in the ETH network: the number of addresses containing 100 or more coins reached 47,740, and the number of wallets with one or more ETH exceeded 1,042 million. Glassnode service drew attention to these statistics. Earlier, the Grayscale fund, having bought almost half of all coins mined in 2020,  reported the growth in popularity of investments in Ethereum. The clients of the fund are institutional investors who invest in securities tied to cryptocurrency. According to analysts, market participants expect a strengthening of the coin value after the launch of the Ethereum 2.0 network, scheduled for the third quarter of this year.

 Canaan miner manufacturer reports loss

Hard times have come for mining equipment manufacturers. The Chinese company Canaan said it suffered $5.6 million losses in Q1. Revenue for this period amounted to $9.4 million - for comparison, in Q4of 2019, the indicator reached $66.5 million. The company's expenses in the first quarter of 2020 exceeded $15 million, which is associated with a two-fold reduction in equipment prices. “The overall market situation since December last year until January had not been too good. So the unit price per TH/s was indeed lower,” said Nangeng  Zhang, CEO of the company. According to the F2Pool mining calculator, Canaan devices are significantly inferior in efficiency to the equipment of Bitmain and MicroBT.

 JPMorgan: Bitcoin is trading 25% below the real value

Although the investment bank JPMorgan does not work with cryptocurrency, the company's specialists occasionally provide analytics on it. According to the bank’s report of May 22, bitcoin today is trading “25% below what the intrinsic price would be after the halving.” The intrinsic value is calculated on the basis of the average cost of mining one coin. Thus, BTC should be trading near the $11,500 mark, which is about $2,400 higher than the current figures. According to JPMorgan, "eventually bitcoin will catch up."

 Miners push the market

Miners turned into sellers, exerting pressure on the market, says analyst CryptoKea. Over the past seven days, they have sold 955 coins over what they mined. “We reached Bitcoin miner capitulation territory,” the analyst concluded. At the same time, the BTC hashrate fell to its lowest level in 2020. Even during Black Thursday, when the rate of the first cryptocurrency fell to $3,800, the computing power of the network was 94 TH/s. Now it has fallen to 90.30 TH/s. Miners switch off outdated devices, but they are forced to sell bitcoins to pay for current expenses, CryptoKea notes.

 The number of “hodlers” increases to the levels of 2016

The number of coins that have not been moving for more than a year has reached 60%, according to cryptanalyst Philipp Swift. This indicates a significant increase in the number of "hodlers" - investors who prefer to hold coins for a long time. The last time this was observed in 2016, it was several months before the bull rally, Swift notes. The analyst used the data of his own HODL Wave indicator, which estimates how long the coins did not move from one address to another. Currently, the indicator value is at levels close to the historical maximum.

At the same time, from February 12 to March 10, no transactions were made on the IOTA network due to the suspension of the wallet that was attacked. Andresen said that he could not determine from the price chart which of the projects was experiencing problems. “Probably nobody is thinking, and it is all day traders and bots,” the scientist concluded.

 Chinese authorities to close 64 mining farms

After the meeting of Yunnan province officials, it was ordered to shut down 57 illegally operating mining farms that were disguising themselves as Big Data companies. Another 7 facilities under construction must cease working. The region’s authorities noted the benefits of mining companies that take away excess electricity, but pointed out that many of them come into direct agreements with hydroelectric power plants and evade taxes. Earlier, the local power grid company demanded to stop the illegal energy consumption by miners who connect to the stations bypassing the authorities. It is reported that some farms have already put up their equipment for sale.

 Bitcoin steadily rises in price in May

The principle of traditional markets “sell in May and go away” does not apply to bitcoin, according to analysts at Messari. Last month, BTC added 9%, slightly higher than the 2020 average of 8.5%. At the same time, in 2019, cryptocurrency in May rose by 54% with an average return of less than 8% per month. And in just 10 years, Bitcoin showed a positive trend in May 8 out of 10 times, while in 6 cases it was higher than the monthly average. Among classical traders, there is an opinion that in the summer there is no significant growth in the market, so it makes no sense to open long positions until the fall.

 Miners reduced bitcoin sales

The Glassnode portal has published data on the influx of coins to exchanges from mining pools. It turned out that after the halving on May 11, miners reduced sales, and now their volume is much lower than the average values for 2020. Over the past two months, sale peaks were observed on May 3 and 7, when Bitcoin price surpassed the $9,000 and $10,000 marks, respectively. Service experts also noted that a surge in BTC price on June 2 above $10,000 provoked an eight-fold increase in the flow of traders’ funds to large exchanges. After the dip to $9,500, the indicators returned to average, which indicates the importance of the round level of $10,000 for market participants.

 Bitcoin has got protection against attacks by authorities

Bitcoin Core 0.20.0 was released on June 3. It contains a solution designed to protect the network from attacks of major players, such as nation-states or corporations like Google. Software “Asmap” was included to protect against a theoretical “Erebus” attack. Such an attack involves blocking or substituting P2P connections to isolate a specific part of the network. The attacker must connect to as many nodes around the victim as possible so that all eight of its external connections go through the attacker's network. Thus, the victim is completely isolated from the main blockchain. Theoretically, such an attack, carried out by an entire nation-state, could fracture the entire Bitcoin network.

 Again, miners sell more BTC than they mine

After the halving of the block reward, miners have to sell more coins than they can earn, according to a report by Arcane Research. The company uses the Miner’s Rolling Inventory (MRI) metric, which tracks the number of coins generated and moved by miners. If the figure is above 100%, then they sell more BTC than they mine. In March, the MRI reached 105%, then began to decline and fell below 100% on the verge of halving. Immediately after the event, the indicator began to grow and now has again reached the level of 105%. According to Arcane Research analysts, this indicates a change in the mood of miners after halving.

 Commission fees at ETH have surpassed BTC

Ethereum network activity continues to grow: last Saturday, daily transaction fees exceeded Bitcoin levels. According to Glassnode, for the ETH network, the figure was $498 thousand against $ 308 thousand for BTC. Analysts attribute this to the growing demand for transfers in Ethereum. In addition, recently the capitalization of stablecoins has been growing, the bulk of which operates on the ETH blockchain. Earlier, the founder of Mythos Capital, Ryan Sean Adams, noted that there is a direct correlation between commission fees and the price of Ethereum. If the trend continues, then we can expect a growth of cryptocurrency price.

Simon Dedik, co-founder of the Blockfyre analytical portal, shared his opinion. He noted that in 2017, during the rally of Bitcoin price, almost all altcoins went up in price.

At the same time, the share of such investors increased from 22% to 27% over the year in the USA, while in Europe the figure is even higher - 45%. Tom Jessop, CEO of Fidelity Investments, explained that this is due to more relaxed European legislation and the prevalence of negative rates. “These results confirm a trend we are seeing in the market towards greater interest in and acceptance of digital assets as a new investable asset class,” he concluded.

 Buterin: the growth of the bitcoin price is not related to halving

The co-founder of Ethereum Vitalik Buterin stated that the theory that the growth of the BTC exchange rate was related to halving did not work. The developer attached a chart of the S2F model according to which bitcoin periodically increased its cost together with halving the reward for mining a block. "The last $20k peak was near the halfway point between the 2016 and 2020 halvings", he pointed out. In the comments Buterin was told that the model predicted the quantitative growth of the bitcoin price, but it did not presume that the maximum will coincide exactly with the event of halving. The developer agreed that the absence of the direct correlation between halving and the growth of the bitcoin price did not disprove the theory, but said that he still did not agree with it.

 The price of Ethereum can rise up to $7,500

If the BTC exchange rate increases up to $50,000, Chris Burniske, a partner in the Placeholder venture capital firm, thinks. "If $BTC goes > $50,000 in the next cycle, and $ETHBTC returns to its former ATH, then expect to see $ETH > $7,500", he wrote in his Twitter account. According to him, the price of bitcoin will rise up to $50,000, even if the volatility of the new rally will be twice as less as the previous indices. In this case, the capitalization of the first cryptocurrency will rise above $1 trillion. It will allow bitcoin to strengthen its "macro equity" status, while ETH will be able to become a mainstream instrument, the expert thinks.

PlanB also notes that the charts of both equities fit into the S2F model — according to the forecast, the next peak of bitcoin will occur at the level of $288,000 and S&P 500 will rise up to $4,300 in this case.

The reason why I think cryptocurrency will be gone eventually is that it is not based on the armed force of governments' power.", Rogers worded his point of view.

 Max Keiser: the BTC price will grow to $400,000 when dollar collapses

Bitcoin investor Max Keiser confirmed his forecast about the growth of the first cryptocurrency exchange rate up to $400,000 and specified that specific dates would depend on the collapse of the US dollar. According to Keiser, the interest payment on the USA's national debt comprised the main item of expense for the government. "The debt is big. But the interest on that debt is now bigger than America’s number-one budget item, the military’s 1.6 trillion spend. When the interest on the debt gets close to 100% of GDP then America will officially be a failed state. This looks like it will be the case within 5 years — as short interest rates snap back to historic levels of 5%, not the current 0.5%", the trader said. He added that he had been waiting for BTC to grow up to $100,000 since 2011, but had recently increased his forecast to $400,000. The increase will start with the collapse of US dollar, Keiser thinks.

It turned out that BTC would rise up to $50,000 and the capitalization of the crypto market would exceed $1 trillion. According to the expert's assessment, investments from institutional investors are negligibly small at the moment. They are frightened off by uncertainty, hacking and fraud risks as well as by prejudice. "Bitcoin may not need institutions to succeed. But reality is, success as a store of value is measured in price.

OKEx exchange CEO Jay Hao said that the second aid package for US citizens due to the coronavirus pandemic could push the bitcoin price up. In March, the government allocated $2.2 trillion for these purposes and after that the price of bitcoin rose from $6,580 to $10,400. Now the US authorities plan to give away another $1 trillion, Bloomberg quotes Hao. He specifies that it is difficult for institutional investors to choose where to invest their money since the stock market is artificially inflated and stocks look like a too risky asset right now. "Institutions will be looking for the best rate of return over time and Bitcoin has consistently proven itself here just as Paul Tudor Jones called it the fastest horse. Again, of course, institutional investors will spread their risk across risk and haven assets", Hao clarifies.

 Miners can trigger a collapse of the BTC rate

Analyst Cole Garner noted that miners had started to massively take coins away from pools. Yesterday the CQ.Live service registered the second largest outflow of miners' funds since the BTC price had reached $10,000. After that the rate fell down to $9,000 last time. Garner supposed that it could trigger sales on the market this time as well. CryptoQuant CEO Ki Young agrees with him. In his opinion, the outflow of coins by miners will result in a short-term fall of the BTC price in the middle of July.

 Elon Musk denied rumors of cooperation with ethereum

Last year, actor William Shatner tweeted that he had been preparing to create an Ethereum-based product with Ilon Mask and Vitalik Buterin. Yesterday, Tesla’s CEO decided to reply to the tweet and said that he was working with a crypto project. “I’m not building anything on ethereum. Not for or against it, just don’t use it or own any,” Musk wrote. In 2019, the enrepreneur posted a post with the only word "Ethereum", but later said it was a joke. Musk also repeatedly spoke positively about bitcoin and reported that he owns 0.25 BTC.

 Bitcoin miners' revenues plunge to an annual minimum

Last month, the profit of bitcoin miners plunged 23% to a minimum since March 2019. In May, miners earned $366 million, and in June they earned $281 million. The reason was the reduction in commissions and block rewards, CoinDesk analysts say. In May, after the halving, the mempool increased drastically, which lead to a growth in the size of commissions. By early June, the mempool decreased to its usual size, which led to a drop in commission fees. Last month, their share in the total income of miners was 8.3%, and in June this figure dropped to 4.3%.

Peter Schiff, Euro Pacific Capital CEO, once again criticized bitcoin as opposed to gold. He noted that gold shows better profitability, and the idea of long-term retention of bitcoin is crazy. “Since hitting its high in June of last year the price of Bitcoin has fallen by 33%. During that same time period the price of gold has risen by 27%. So, priced in gold Bitcoin has fallen by 53%. The long-term trend has clearly changed in gold’s favor. HODLers remain delusional,” Schiff tweeted. He added that the peak of the BTC bubble occurred in 2017, and now the cryptocurrency price is in a long-term downtrend.

 CBDC will determine the future of money and cryptocurrencies

According to Guy Sheffield, Visa’s head of crypto. In the next ten years, the development of central bank digital currencies will affect the confidentiality, monetary sovereignty of states, geopolitics and the adoption of bitcoin. “I’d argue that central bank digital currency (CBDC) is one of the most important trends for the future of money and payments over the next decade. Regardless of anyone’s personal views of whether it’s good or bad, the reality is that global interest in it is not going away,” Sheffield tweeted. He noted that earlier single articles from central banks were issued on this topic, and now there is a non-stop flow of information from experts, scientists and organizations.

The first cryprocurrency increases its connection with the S&P 500 index: according to Skew, the correlation level of the two assets have achieved the record level of 77%. At the same time, the index is predicted to fall. Last week the Citigroup financial corporation informed its investors that it anticipates the asset to go down 10% to 2,900 points.

 Transfer funds from bitcoin to altcoins is risky

Thinks Jason Williams, a partner at Morgan Creek Digital. According to him, many investors are selling bitcoin right now to buy altcoins and stablecoins. It is a very risky thing to do. "I am sure, if real honest historical analysis was done, it would show holding is a superior strategy", the analyst wrote. He compared this to indices that are ahead of separate companies' shares regarding profitability. Binance head Changpeng Zhao thinks likewise: earlier he claimed that altcoins were hardly to reach their maximum this year.

 Charles Edwards: bitcoin is in for a new rally

Renown analyst Charles Edwards said that bitcoin was ready for a new rally. The Hash Ribbons indicator developed by Edwards confirmed the signal for buying. It is just the twelfth signal the indicator has given through the entire history of bitcoin — the earlier eleven ones were for a rise. The last Hash Ribbons signal was on the 25th of April and after it the price of BTC went up by 34%. The indicator is based on the hashrate and complexity measures. According to the author, the hashrate of the bitcoin network falls down earlier than the regular change in complexity occurs. Periods like that are favorable for entering the market, Edwards thinks.

Something like that, but probably not as much, for the testing, tracing, treatment", Pelosi said. "A trillion more reasons to own bitcoin", the businessman commented on this news.

 Opinion: the BTC price will drop down to $7,000 before a new rally

Bloсkroots analyst and founder Josh Rager thinks that the price of bitcoin is ready to break through its historical maximum of $20,000, but it has to drop down first in order to do that. He studied the chart starting from 2010 and noticed that there had been a powerful fall before each explosive growth. For example, the price formed a bear triangle in 2018, then fell from $6,300 to $3,100 and then rose to $13,800. At the moment, the chart shows a similar formation. According to the analyst, the rate will plummet to $7,000 and then it will rise to the historical maximum towards the end of the year

 Peter Schiff: bitcoin is a financial pyramid

Euro Pacific Capital broker company president Peter Schiff goes on with his criticism against bitcoin. This time the businessman called BTC a financial pyramid whose participants protect the idea of bitcoin because they are personally interested in its efficiency. "The very nature of Bitcoin requires owners to encourage new buyers to enter the market. Without new buyers coming in, there is no way for existing HODLers to get out. As with any pyramid scheme, success is only possible for those who get in early if lots of others get in late", Schiff wrote in his Twitter account. Earlier he had worded the idea that BTC price would drop down to zero.

 Weak dollar will strengthen the position of bitcoin and gold

Pompliano notes that it is especially true for US dollar since the US Federal Reserve System has recently been issuing a large number of new banknotes. "There is a devaluation of currency. The whole secret to building wealth is to get out of cash and get into assets that are denominated in dollars that will continue to go up in value over long periods of time — stocks, real estate, gold, Bitcoin, all this stuff", the expert advised.

 Whales are getting ready for an Ethereum pump

Expert at the Santiment analytical service think. They note that investors have transfered 700,000 ETH to exchanges (more than $182 million) for the last three days. Transfers from addresses in TOP-100 of the largest Ethereum owners have been registered. According to the analysts, it indicates an upcoming pump in the price of the cryptocurrency. “The top 100 holders of Ethereum are once again beginning to accumulate higher percentages of the total token supply, in spite of the ongoing consolidation that has been occurring for the past couple of weeks. Generally, when this kind of accumulation starts to mount, it’s a signal that those who have the most stake in ETH (and other respective tokens) are beginning to have a collective sentiment of the token being undervalued and believe it’s a great mid to long-term hold play”, Santiment experts write.

According to Heisenberg Capital founder Max Keiser, Warren Buffet will panic-buy bitcoin at $50,000. The reason for that is that the investor slowly accepts new promising assets. The businessman points out that, for instance, Buffet’s fund lost the opportunity to purchase Apple and Amazon shares in the early days of these companies. “My guess is that Buffett (or whoever takes over after he passes) will start panic-buying Bitcoin at $50,000, just like Peter Schiff will do”, Keiser stated.

 Why Ethereum continued to grow

Santiment analysts revealed. The ETH price renewed its two-year high rising to the level of $440 — the currency is traded near this point at the moment. According to Santiment experts, the trend for the position of Ethereum to strengthen will continue. One of the reasons for that is the growing number of transactions in the network. Not long ago this indicator reached the point of 1.27 million operations a day, which became the highest level from the beginning of 2018. Another factor is the growing demand for processing transactions. Payments for transactions continue to renew their highs.

Cane Island analyst Timothy Peterson thinks that Ethereum will lose at least half its price in the next 12 months. He points out that the price of the cryptocurrency at the moment is about twice as big as its "real" price calculated on the basis of the network value.

 Miners may cause the BTC exchange rate to collapse because of competition

Data from CryptoQuant proves that mining pools have transferred large amounts of bitcoin to exchanges. On September 2, the Poolin, Slush and HaoBTC pools moved 1,630 BTC (about $18,5 mln) to exchanges. The indicator is above the average daily value — the transactions started at the moment when the bitcoin price fell below the level of $11,500. CryptoQuant Head Ki Young Joo supposed that miners may push the market through to push out competitors. "I think it's going to be the war of miners between those who want a Bitcoin price rally and those who don't. As I know, some Chinese miners already realize their mining profitability (return on investment), and they might not want new mining competitors joining the industry because of the bull market", — he remarked.

The European Central Bank stated this week that it would seek to compensate the growth of euro. Young notes that it will also support the US dollar and undermine the positions of bitcoin and gold even more. "Currency analysts believe the ECB could continue to “dampen” the strength of the euro. In the short term that could cause the dollar to rally, which might place selling pressure on Bitcoin and gold", the expert concludes.

 Bitcoin and Gold Correlation Set Record

The correlation between gold and bitcoin has been increasing since July amid a weakening US dollar. The loss of the position of the main world currency has a positive effect on "defensive" assets, which include gold and bitcoin. The level of correlation between the two instruments exceeded 0.5, which indicates a high co-directionality of the movement of their rates. A few months ago, the indicator was below 0.1. The correlation index varies from -1 to 1. The -1 mark indicates that the quotes move absolutely independently, with a value of 1 the price charts completely coincide. In addition to gold, the correlation between BTC price and S&P 500 index also increased. On September 7, the indicator reached 0.4905, after which it decreased to 0.36.

 ETH Transaction Volume Updated Historical Peak

In August, the monthly volume of ETH transactions set a record, reaching $24 billion, according to DappRadar data. The indicator has been renewing maximums for already three months - back in May it did not exceed $2 billion. The active growth of the level of transferred funds in the network is associated with the development of the decentralized finance market. The volume of transfers of DEX and DeFi applications over the past month increased by $9 billion each.

The digital yuan is legally fully consistent with fiat currency, says Fan Yifei, deputy chairman of the People's Bank of China. In an article written for Financial News, the official outlined the basic principles for regulating the digital yuan.

The official also added that the digital yuan should be regulated by anti-money laundering and terrorist financing laws.

 Draft law on the regulation of cryptocurrency in the EU has been published

Politico has published a preliminary version of the Cryptocurrency Assets Markets Act (MiCA), created by the European Commission. The document proposes to regulate cryptocurrencies, security tokens and stablecoins in the same way as traditional financial instruments, which will ensure their legal purity.

It is expected that the bill will be submitted for consideration in September, and will be able to enter into force no earlier than 2022.

 BTC price is in a "steady upward trend"

As pointed by Delphi Digital analysts. Bitcoin's surge is now more robust than last year, as traders prefer to hold coins rather than speculate on exchanges. The current rise in bitcoin price to $12,500 in August differs from strengthening to $13,800 in 2019. Back then, the wallet balances of crypto exchanges were increasing, and this year they continue to fall, despite the rise in prices. This suggests that the selling pressure is now much lower. “This suggests a more sustainable move upwards for BTC, in comparison to that of 2019 as data indicates a holder base with longer time horizons,” analysts say. The balance of bitcoins on exchanges fell from an all-time high of 2.96 million coins in February to 2.59 million BTC today.

 Miners left to mine 2.5 million BTC

At the moment, miners have mined about 18.5 million bitcoins, which is more than 86% of the maximum emission level. There are 2.5 million coins left to mine, and half of them will be mined in the next four years, says an analyst at ChartsBTC. The total number of bitcoins is limited to 21 million coins. The last of them, according to the idea of the creator of the cryptocurrency Satoshi Nakamoto, will be found by 2140. Once every four years, the reward for mining a block is halved, which slows down the issue of new bitcoins. Since the network was established in 2009, there have been three halves. The latter happened in May of this year, as a result of which the block reward decreased from 12.5 BTC to 6.25 BTC.

 93% of TOP-250 cryptocurrencies fell in price in September

Over the past few months, DeFi token prices have skyrocketed, sparking talk of a bull market. The boom in decentralized financial projects triggered an increase in the Ethereum price, which rose from $100 in March to $470 in August. However, in recent weeks, the euphoria in the DeFi sphere has faded, and with it the rest of the crypto market has subsided. According to CoinMetrics, 72% of the 250 largest crypto assets have lost in value over the past week, while 93% of top cryptocurrencies have seen a decline over the month. Most DeFi tokens fell by 15-85% in September. However, specialists from the DeFiWorld portal note that corrections are normal in a growing market, and the current year reminds them of 2016. “We move in bubbles and 4-year cycles. While everyone is just thinking about what happens today, this week, or this month, you should zoom out and reflect where we are really heading.

 Users withdrew $5 billion in bitcoins from exchanges

Over the year, the balance of wallets of crypto-exchange clients decreased by 400 thousand BTC (about $5 billion). In October 2019, the figure was 2.8 million coins, and today it has dropped to 2.4 million. The inflow of bitcoins is considered a bearish signal, as traders bring coins to exchanges for sale. Consequently, the outflow of bitcoins from exchange wallets indicates that investors' appetite for selling is declining, according to Cointelegraph analyst Joseph Young. Another possible reason lies in recent exchange hacks. In September, hackers stole $150 million in cryptocurrency from the KuCoin exchange, and a little earlier - $4 million from the Eterbase platform.

 BTC price will be rising until the end of the year

Analyst Willie Wu thinks. He draws attention to the fact that the number of new participants in the bitcoin network has grown significantly since mid-September, and the cryptocurrency price has not reacted to this. In the last year and a half, the price of bitcoin in all cases has increased following an increase in the characteristic. Therefore, BTC is currently undervalued, the analyst points out. He also notes that in September, market participants accumulated coins while the price moved sideways. This is indicated by the On Balance Volume indicator. Another important metric of the beginning of growth is the ribbons of complexity. The indicator has left the "compression" zone, which previously always indicated an increase in the value of bitcoin. “Overall: bullish the next 3 weeks, also bullish over next 3 months,” concludes Willie Wu.

 Bitcoin will rise in price to six-digit numbers

If one condition is met, said Michael van de Poppe, an analyst at the Amsterdam Stock Exchange. He notes that previous bullish runs of the BTC price took place amid a falling dollar index. This was the case in 2014 and 2017. Since March this year, the index has also significantly lost in value, which contributed to the rise in the price of bitcoin to $12,400. The price of BTC may temporarily sink due to the second wave of coronavirus, but in the long term, the cryptocurrency will win as a safe-haven asset. “Of course, a potential drop by 25-35% could occur in the first stage of the crisis just like in March. But Bitcoin and gold would benefit significantly afterwards as safe havens against a weakening dollar, which is precisely what happened in December 2017 as BTC hit its all-time high of nearly $20,000,” writes van de Poppe. If the weakness of the dollar persists in 2021, then bitcoin may rise in price to six-digit numbers, the analyst said.

 New US stimulus measures will strengthen bitcoin

The BTC rate will continue to rise this week amid falling dollar index, Cointelegraph analyst William Suberg writes. The index declines for the fourth day in a row as negotiations continue in Washington on new stimulus measures due to the coronavirus epidemic. The amount of support can reach $2.5 trillion. US Treasury Secretary Stephen Mnuchin confirmed that the measures will include a new round of payments in the amount of $1,200 for a number of categories of US citizens. Past payments took place this spring during the first wave of coronavirus. Then the crypto-exchanges recorded a sharp jump in deposits for exactly the amount of incentive checks. Trader Ton Weiss recommends buying bitcoin as he believes the authorities will continue to issue dollars. “No matter who wins they will keep printing, so buy bitcoin,” Weiss wrote during a debate between US presidential candidates Donald Trump and Joe Biden.

 BTC rate sets a maximum of 5 weeks

At the weekend, the price of the first cryptocurrency continued to grow and exceeded the $11'500 mark. Bitcoin was last trading this high on September 2. Sunday was the fifth trading day in a row that BTC closed with a profit. The cryptocurrency has gained 7.3% since last Wednesday.

 1,000 BTC moved for the first time since 2010

An unknown sender transferred 1,000 bitcoins, which had not been moved since 2010. The coins were withdrawn to one address and then split into transactions of 10 BTC each, according to the Goldfoundinshit resource. Tracking the history of transactions, the authors of the portal came to the conclusion that all the coins belong to one owner. A similar transfer took place on March 11, right before the collapse of the BTC price from $7,900 to $4,000. Then, too, 1,000 bitcoins, which had been “sleeping” since 2010, came into motion. In both cases, the sender first withdrew the coins to a P2SH address and then split them into multiple bech32 addresses.

Since the end of August, the capitalization of the USDT token has grown by more than 50%, which allowed the stablecoin to displace XRP from the third place. The Bloomberg report notes that if the current trend continues, Tether would be able to bypass ETH as early as 2021. “Increasing adoption of stable coins is likely a precursor for central bank digital currencies and promises to be more enduring than alt-coin speculative excesses. The rapid rise in the market cap of stable coins indicates that central bank digital currencies (CBDCs) are a matter of time, in our view,” analysts say.

This marked the first quarter with over $1 billion in investments, which indicates record high demand from institutional traders. Based on these data, the fund buys about 77% of all coins mined by miners. “Shortages of Bitcoin possible. Barry's Grayscale Trust is eating up BTC like there is no tomorrow. If 77% of all newly mined turns into 110%, it's lights out. Non-miner supply will get held off market in squeeze. Shorts will be dead. Price can go to any number, ” said the businessman.

 Ethereum 2.0 launch date announced

The zero phase of the Ethereum 2.0 network will be launched on December 1, but one condition must be met for this. The Ethereum Foundation announced on Wednesday the launch of the second version of the network's custody contract. Users need to deposit 32 ETH to participate in staking. If the contract collects 16,384 deposits in the amount of 524,288 ETH (about $200 million), then the network will be ready for the launch. The specified goal must be achieved at least seven days before the expected launch date, that is, by November 24. A few hours after the announcement, the number of ETH addresses with a balance of more than 32 coins reached a new high at 126,852.

 Bill Miller: Every Investment Bank Will Want to Buy Bitcoin

Legendary investor Bill Miller stated that the risks of bitcoin price zeroing are "lower than ever before" and predicted an increase in institutional investment in cryptocurrency. “The bitcoin story is very easy, it's supply and demand. Bitcoin's supply is growing around 2.5% a year and the demand is growing faster than that,” he said. After MicroStrategy's $425 million purchase of bitcoin, Square's $50 million investment, and the integration of cryptocurrencies into the PayPal wallet, Miller believes every major investment bank and company will eventually want to own cryptocurrency. He added that Bitcoin has performed well over the past three-, five- and ten-year periods.

 An unplanned hard fork might have occurred on the Ethereum network

Ethereum infrastructure providers Infura and Blockchair have reported outages, resulting in problems with exchanges and wallets. Initially thought to be an internal Infura issue, later independent node operators also reported malfunctions. The Binance exchange has suspended the withdrawal of funds, and its head Changpeng Zhao referred to a “possible chain split” as the culprit. Crashes were also reported by the MetaMask wallet, Bithumb, Upbit and marketplaces.

 Opinion: ETH 2.0 won’t handle DeFi’s growth

FTX exchange CEO Sam Bankman-Fried believes that the Ethereum network is not able to of handling decentralized finance’s (DeFi) growth. According to him, the ETH blockchain is limiting the development of DeFi, and the only way to solve the problem is to use other networks. Bankman-Fried said that whenever his team tried to create a new DeFi project, they "immediately exceeded the throughput of the Ethereum blockchain by orders of magnitude." The FTX CEO believes that one day the DeFi audience will surpass 1 billion people, which means that blockchains will need to significantly expand their scalability in order to maintain a ten-digit user base. Scaling improvements on the Ethereum 2.0 network won't be enough either, he points out.

 Bitcoin Cash network again split into two

On November 15, a hard fork took place on the Bitcoin Cash network — the network split into Bitcoin Cash Node (BCHN) and Bitcoin Cash ABC (BCHA). Earlier, the BCHA developers proposed an updated version of the protocol, according to which 8% of miners' profits will go to finance the development of the network. The update was opposed by the BCHN community, which removed the "miner tax" from the source code of their network. As of the evening of November 15, the computing power of the BCHN blockchain was 1.12 EH/s, and BCHA - 0.094 EH/s, that is, 11 times lower. Most major exchanges have indicated they will support the longer chain, i.e. Bitcoin Cash Node.

 Grayscale: investors seek in Bitcoin protection against inflation

According to Michael Sonnenschein, managing director of Grayscale Investments, Bitcoin is no longer a temporary phenomenon. Investors no longer believe that BTC has failed as a currency as we don't use it to buy a cup of coffee. The coronavirus pandemic this year has become another key factor for the flow of funds into cryptocurrency, he said. “I think investors understand today that buying Bitcoin and putting it in their portfolio is meant to be a store of value, inflation hedge, a digital gold, a digital form of money that is much better suited to the digital world we live in today versus historical stores of value like gold which would have been certainly much more applicable to a world characterized by physical exchanges. They view it as one of the most important next steps in the evolution of money and what constitutes a store of value,” Sonnenschein said. Grayscale manages nearly $11 billion in cryptocurrency.

 Bitcoin keeps dropping

The main cryptocurrency has continued to decline over the past couple of days. On November 27, BTC fell to $16,915. Bitcoin capitalization fell to $313 billion.

But in the long term, nothing will prevent Bitcoin from repeating its record three years ago and reaching $20,000.

 Ethereum 2.0 finally launched

After several years in the making, the genesis block of the Ethereum 2.0 beacon chain has finally seen the light of day. The upgrade to the second-largest cryptocurrency by market cap was launched as planned, at just after 12 pm UTC on Dec. 1. The launch suffered no hiccups and immediately reached the required stake participation rate to finalize the blockchain. The biggest change is the introduction of a proof-of-stake consensus to the network, which has previously been purely based on the same proof-of-work consensus as Bitcoin. The transition to PoS paves the way for future planned upgrades to be implemented, such as sharding to improve scalability. The launch will be especially welcomed by those in the decentralized finance community. The explosion of DeFi during 2020 saw a huge increase in traffic and gas fees on the Ethereum network.

 One of the Ripple creators sold almost 30 million XRP

Jed McCaleb, one of the founders of Ripple, sold another 29.5 million XRP. After leaving the Ripple project, the businessman received 9 billion XRP tokens. Six years ago, he announced that he plans to liquidate these crypto assets. After a lengthy conflict with Ripple Labs over this, McCaleb entered into an agreement with former partners. According to the document, the entrepreneur was able to sell XRP by tying them to the global trading volume. Under the terms of the agreement, McCaleb was entitled to sell up to 1.5% of the world's XRP trading volume daily. It is important to consider that XRP reached a new all-time high in November. Therefore, the speed with which an entrepreneur began to get rid of crypto assets could negatively affect the market. “After the radical increase in XRP volume (according to CMC) it only made sense that Jed would increase his sales, as per his deal with Ripple. Today 9.9 million XRP were sold, making it a new ATH of Jed sales. At this rate, Jed's 3.836B will run out after 387 days”, says cryptoexpert Leonidas Hadjiloizou, ”said Leonidas Hadzhiloizu. McCaleb owns about 3.7 billion tokens.

 Bitcoin price correction continues, dashing hopes of $20K in 2020

Bitcoin will probably not reach $20,000 this year if a key technical price level isn't reclaimed soon. Bitcoin continues to be in correction mode with its price dropping below $17,600 on Dec. 11, the lowest level since November. Every beautiful rally comes to an end and gets followed by a corrective period. This correction seems to have started with the price currently down more than 10% since touching a new all-time high ten days ago. Meanwhile, some recent news namely the proposed crypto regulation in the United States is bringing fear to the otherwise euphoric market.

 SEC Commissioner: authorities must abandon excessive regulation of crypto market

Regulators need to find acceptable options in order to finally accept the principle of personal freedom of citizens, embodied in the very concept of digital currencies. Also, the authorities must abandon the idea of excessive control over the crypto industry, said SEC Commissioner Hester Peirce. In one of her recent speeches, she noted that the digital asset market and the sector of decentralized finance creates certain difficulties for the authorities. Regulators, however, should not restrict industry development with excessive regulatory requirements. “If we were instead to steamroll the technology’s liberty-enhancing features under the weight of regulation, we would lose a lot of the power of the new technology to afford opportunities to people whose autonomy has previously been curbed by, for example, limited access to the traditional financial system, geographic location, social standing, or subjection to a repressive government,” Peirce said.

Estonia has revoked licenses from more than 1,000 crypto companies

The Estonian government revoked the licenses of more than 1,000 cryptocurrency companies. This happened amid increasing control over the digital asset industry and countering money laundering. As the representative of the State Commission on Combating Money Laundering noted, "monitoring and regulation" of crypto service operators "constantly needs increased attention." He said that in the past year, many projects have received licenses to work with crypto projects. And amendments to the country's legislation, which came into force in 2020, have tightened the licensing of operators of services related to digital assets. “In 2020, the Financial Intelligence Agency revoked more than 1000 licenses to operate from companies dealing with crypto assets. At the same time, there are still around 400 companies offering services in this area in Estonia. The connection of many of these companies with Estonia is minimal, and the clientele of some companies is from distant countries, ” the Ministry of Finance said.

 Analytics make predictions concerning trial SEC against Ripple

The regulator believes that the XRP company should be responsible for the unregistered issue of securities in the guise of tokens that the project has been selling for 7 years. To remind you, Ripple has raised about $1.3 billion. According to Adam Cochran, a partner of Cinneamhain Ventures, the trial court will take years, though Ripple Company does not have many chances, like EOS or kin do. While seeking the arguments Cochran says that Ripple is completely falling under the jurisdiction of the SEC. The defendants are Ripple CEO Brad Garlinghouse and his companion Chris Larsen. Nonetheless, XRP assets are still trading on global markets. To remind you, the SEC recognized tokens as unregistered securities. Andrew Tugarin, leading partner of GMT Legal, has no doubt that the proceedings will most likely not be in favor of Ripple. «It seems that a large fine will be imposed on the project itself and its founders personally» - analytic said.

The total share of TOP-1 BTC on the crypto market for the first time this year has reached 69.3%. Mikhail Karkhalev, the analyst of the crypto platform believes that the key driver of BTC's market share growth was a decrease in Ripple's capitalization and its future trial. Over the past 7 days the token price has decreased by 54%. The fall comes amid SEC accusations against Ripple and the refusal of several companies to work with XRP at once. «In my opinion, there are no prerequisites for a decrease in the market share of BTC. The main cryptocurrency, in contrast to the same Ethereum (ETH), is held near the price maximum, while Ethereum has lost positions. The market is ready for a slight correction to $ 21-20 thousand for BTC. The price may reach these levels in the first half of January, after which it will move back to growth in search of new highs.

 British regulator pointed to the risk of investing in cryptocurrencies

The UK Financial Conduct Authority warns of the risks of investing in crypto assets. The corresponding statement was published on the regulator's website. FCA drew attention to the fact that some companies are calling for investment in cryptocurrency projects and promising high returns. The British regulator warns that such investments are high-risk, and consumers "must be prepared to lose all their investments." “Firms offering these products should make sure they comply with all relevant regulatory requirements and are authorised by the FCA where this is required. Since 10 January 2021, all UK cryptoasset firms must be registered with the FCA under regulations to tackle money laundering. Operating without a registration is a criminal offence, ” FCA said in its statement. According to the regulator, the key risks are associated with the lack of a system for protecting the rights of crypto investors, the volatility of such assets, difficulties in understanding the principle of operation of products, and high fees for cryptocurrency transactions.

 Mark Cuban thinks Bitcoin may continue to rise

Billionaire and well-known Bitcoin critic Mark Cuban believes that the first cryptocurrency is able to continue to grow, like stocks in general, amid no increase in interest rates. The entrepreneur urged crypto enthusiasts to monitor the dynamics of interest rates. “All speculation about debt will get real ground if interest rates rise and by how much. That's when we will see how this affects the prices of all assets. Bitcoin is akin to any stock. Its price is determined by supply and demand, ”said the billionaire.

About a year ago, Cuban stated that bitcoin "has no chance" to become a reliable currency in the future. "It [Bitcoin] is too difficult to use, too easy to hack, way too easy to lose, too hard to understand, too hard to assess a value," Cuban said in December 2019.

 Lloyd Blankfein: BTC prevents authorities from controlling the financial system

According to Lloyd Blankfei, the former CEO of Goldman Sachs, the authorities are obliged to tighten regulation of the cryptocurrency industry due to the rapid growth of this direction.

At the same time, Blankfein doubts that after the tightening of control and, as a result, the loss of anonymity, bitcoin will continue to be in great demand.

 Opinion: Bitcoin will not hold at the $30,000 level

Scott Minerd, chief investment officer of Guggenheim Partners, is confident that the price of the main cryptocurrency will be dropping. In a comment to Bloomberg, he said that he doubted BTC's ability to hold on to the $30,000 mark. “Right now, the reality of the institutional demand that would support a US$35’000 price or even a US$30’000 price is just not there. I don’t think the investor base is big enough and deep enough right now to support this kind of valuation, ” Minerd said. In his opinion, BTC will remain a viable asset in the long term, but in the near future, the pressure on the price of bitcoin may increase.

 Developing country regulators to issue government stablecoins in the coming time

According to BIS (Bank for International Settlements) analysts, regulators from different countries are actively exploring the question of issuing government tokens. Their mass launch will be in developing countries, analysts say. In the third annual BIS survey, in which 65 central banks participated, 86% of those surveyed said they were considering the pros and cons of issuing their own cryptocurrencies. In 2020, this figure was 80%. About 60% of regulators are already experimenting with government digital currencies. “This research is evidenced by the launch of the first real government cryptocurrency in the Bahamas. Others are likely to join this pioneer. Central banks, which together represent a fifth of the world's population, are likely to issue general-purpose government cryptocurrencies in the next three years,” the report said.

 8,000 BTC, which were mined about 10 years ago, belong to [Censored word]

Eight batches of 1,000 BTC each, which have been in motion for the first time since 2010, are owned by [Censored word] or related companies. This version was published by the Goldfoundinshit Telegram channel. “Yesterday the next, eighth batch of 1,000 BTC, moved, which lay on the wallets broken by 50, has not moved since 2010. I have previously suggested that these bitcoins belong to [Censored word]. Now I am absolutely sure of this, ” wrote the author of the channel. According to the results of the on-chain analysis, as before, 1,000 bitcoins were accumulated in tranches of 50 BTC at separate addresses from 20 wallets. “As you can see, first there is a consolidation of 20 wallets of 50 per address – 1,000 BTC then, this 1,000 is scattered in batches of 10 BTC into original ones, let's call them“ pockets ”for withdrawal. The same thing happened during the movement of the previous parties. Sometimes one or two transactions with large amounts of BTC went from a wallet with 1,000 BTC, apparently for some VIP users, ” the author noted.

 The number of active BTC addresses reached 22.3 million in January

During the first month of this year, the number of unique active BTC addresses amounted to 22.3 million. The growth occurred against the background of an increase in the activity of traders and the price of bitcoin, which exceeded the $42,000 mark. “In January, more than 22.3 million unique addresses were active in the network sending or receiving $BTC – the highest monthly number in Bitcoin's history to date,” Glassnode said.

Since 2017, the number of active BTC addresses has not dropped below 10 million per month.

 Economists criticized the idea of issuing government cryptocurrencies

Economists Peter Bofinger and Thomas Hass believe that government tokens issued as a medium of exchange may not compete with private banks. Experts believe that regulators need to focus on the concept of supranational cryptocurrencies that will become a store of value in the international system. Economists admit that the best type of government cryptocurrency is one that regulators are unlikely to think about for fear of rejecting intermediation. It will be a government-owned cryptocurrency designed not to facilitate payments, but to save the value. “The demand for a store-of-value CBDC would come from firms and large investors with bank deposits of more than €100,000, which would be bailed-in in the case of a bank restructuring. From the user perspective, this demand would depend on the interest rate for such deposits. Central banks could auction store-of-value deposits which would give them a perfect control over their amount,” the researchers noted.

 Glassnode believes that "miners have reduced bitcoin sales, and investors are taking profits"

According to the research company Glassnode, miners have begun to accumulate reserves in bitcoins. Long-term investors, on the other hand, are trying to get rid of their assets in order to lock in profits. The Glassnode report says that in January, miners were actively selling almost all of the mined BTC, however, in February, the volume of sales decreased significantly. This could mean that miners are hoping for an increase in the value of bitcoin. “This suggests that miners have either completed adequate sales to cover costs, or could also mean they see Tesla's vote of confidence as fair reason to keep a strong grip on their treasuries," analysts say.

The largest cryptocurrency platform OKCoin has planned to delist Bitcoin Cash and Bitcoin SV.

Among other reasons for the failure of bitcoin forks - a controversial figure of the creator of BSV Craig Wright. The entrepreneur has already stated that it was he who created bitcoin. “This is not an easy decision. We had a choice and there is collateral damage, but we had to stand up for the bigger principle we believe in. On the one hand we feel very strongly about protecting the open-source ethos, but on the other, if we do something about it, that would conflict with our principle of being a neutral platform. We wouldn’t have changed that if it weren’t for Craig Wright posting these threats to the open-source dev community. We think these threats are very destructive to development and Bitcoin as a whole, "- Fang said.

Ryan Watkins, senior analyst at analyst firm Messari, believes that ETH could displace BTC from the first place in the ranking of cryptoassets in terms of capitalization. This can happen after the transition to the second version of the Ethereum protocol. “The selling point of Bitcoin over Ethereum as a store of value asset boils down its monetary policy being very predictable and the Bitcoin blockchain being very secure. I think that with the shift to Eth2 and to proof-of-stake, [...] Ethereum may actually potentially be more secure than Bitcoin,” said Watkins. The analyst noted that a "massive and diverse" economy is based on the Ethereum blockchain. The actively developing direction of decentralized applications will attract new users faster than BTC, he is sure.

Bitcoin is useless as a store of value or payment instrument. The only reason to become a holder of BTC is its growing price. This is the opinion of analysts at Bank of America, whose report is called "Little Dirty Secrets of Bitcoin." One of the authors of the report, Francisco Blanch, is confident that BTC cannot be a safe-haven asset due to the fact that it is not tied to inflation and has serious volatility. The analyst pointed out that about 95% of bitcoins are held by the owners of 2.4% of wallets, and this may become an obstacle to the global introduction of the crypto coin. “As such, the main portfolio argument for holding Bitcoin is not diversification, stable returns, or inflation protection, but rather sheer price appreciation, a factor that depends on Bitcoin demand outpacing supply,” said Blanch.

The total number of bitcoins is limited to 21 million coins. According to CoinDesk, about 18.66 million coins have already been mined. At the same time, about 15.5 million are in circulation, since access to wallets from 15% to 20% is considered completely lost according to various expert estimates.

The head of the US Federal Reserve System Jerome Powell expressed the opinion that digital currencies of central banks (CBDC) will not become a substitute for conventional money.

He is confident that this year will be a year of "insane optimism" for BTC, as the current rally is in its "final explosive phase." “You’d be crazy to sell right now. There’s more buying the dip than ever seen before, a new record for 2021 and we know the person that’s buying the dip is Rick Astley and he’s not going to let us down,” Woo said jokingly. He also stated that the cryptocurrency is currently "at the bottom", so Woo is "building up his long positions."

 Visa will process payments in USDC stablecoin

Visa payment system has launched a pilot program in collaboration with cryptocurrency company According to the company, the pilot program will allow USD Coin (USDC) to be sent directly to Visa Ethereum addresses. Anchorage digital bank will become Visa's settlement agent when working with USDC. The company has taken the development of this direction seriously. In December last year, Visa already connected its global network to USDC and announced the release of a card with support for payments in stablecoin. In February, the company began testing a set of application programming interfaces (APIs) that will allow traditional bank customers to buy and sell digital assets. “We see increasing demand from consumers across the world to be able to access, hold and use digital currencies and we’re seeing demand from our clients to be able to build products that provide that access for consumers," Cuy Sheffield, head of crypto at Visa, said. In the future, Visa plans to process payments in central bank digital currencies (CBDC). Visa CEO Alfred Kelly said earlier this month that the company aims to reach out to stablecoins as well as Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. “We're trying to do two things. One is to enable the purchase of Bitcoin on Visa credentials. And secondly, working with Bitcoin wallets to allow the Bitcoin to be translated into a fiat currency and therefore immediately be able to be used at any of the 70 million places around the world where Visa is accepted, "Kelly said. The new program at Visa is described as a “small step” for the payment platform, but “a giant leap” for the proliferation of digital assets.

 Erik Voorhees claims the biggest event in crypto this week isn’t [Censored word]’s listing

According to Erik Voorhees, ShapeShift CEO and crypto industry stalwart ,[Censored word]’s listing isnt’t the biggest event in crypto this week. He says, that the launch of ThorChain is arguably the biggest event in crypto this week, which is a pretty big claim. ThorChain’s launch is scheduled for Tuesday and will mark the first time that native crypto assets can be traded on a decentralized exchange across unique blockchains without bridging technology or wrapping tokens. Voorhees twitted: “Thorchain has no bridges. It has no wrapping. It is native assets, swapped across chains in a decentralized way, for the first time ever,” Voorhees exclaimed. To swap BTC for ETH, for example, the exchange would trade the BTC for RUNE, which is then swapped for ETH. This is all carried out at high speed to ensure the user is not impacted by the intermediary trade. ThorChain is also developing a native wallet called AsgardEx, which will be built to interact directly with the “chaosnet,” allowing the tokens of unique blockchains to be held by a single wallet. The platform’s native token, RUNE, has been on fire recently, surging 13% over the past 24 hours to reach an all-time high of $12.65, according to CoinGecko.

Analysts at Weiss Ratings did not notice any threat to ETH's position from similar projects in the near term. Cryptocoins are often criticized for insufficient bandwidth and rather serious commissions for operations. “Many people say that other blockchains are “ catching up with ETH”, but we are extremely skeptical about that. It's all too reminiscent of 2017, when the self-proclaimed Ethereum killers sacrificed decentralization to be faster and cheaper. We all know how it ended. For many of these projects, the only hope to survive is to become an Ethereum sidechain,” Weiss Ratings analysts wrote on Twitter. Today, the main competitor to Ethereum is Binance Smart Chain. But there are bandwidth issues on this blockchain - recently, the development team of the PancakeSwap exchange reported about the congestion of the BSC network.

Italian economist Fabio Panetta is confident that mining digital currencies carries risks for ensuring environmental safety. A member of the board of the European Central Bank believes that "colossal electricity consumption" and carbon emissions from the mining of crypto assets can negatively affect socio-economic development.

Panetta believes that cryptocurrency mining poses a potential threat to international environmental security. “Bitcoin alone is already consuming more electricity than the Netherlands. Controlling and limiting the environmental impact of crypto assets, including through regulation and taxation, should be part of the global discussion,” Panetta said.

The main cryptocurrency price may fall below the $50,000 level. This is probably due to the decrease in the number of "whale" addresses to the minimum since this year.

According to the entrepreneur, BTC is the only crypto-coin that has reached “space speed”. “As an investment adviser and someone who’s been running money for 30-plus years, it’s responsible of me to tell my clients to own 1%, 2% or 3%.

 The Fed is concerned about the growing popularity of stablecoins amid the lack of regulation of this market

Boston Federal Reserve Bank Governor Eric Rosengren has raised concerns about the risks associated with Tether to the soundness of the financial market. According to the official, USDT has become a "new problem" in the short-term lending markets. “The reason I talked about tether and stable coins is if you look at their portfolio, it basically looks like a portfolio of a prime money market fund but maybe riskier. We actually had a stablecoin that ran into financial difficulties last week. Tether, as you highlighted, has a number of assets that, during the pandemic, the spread got quite wide on those assets,” Eric Rosengren said. He noted that stablecoins are already playing a significant role in the modern economy. However, the absence of a significant degree of regulation of this industry can be dangerous for all players in the financial market.

British regulator has decided to complicate the work of Binance

The British Financial Conduct Authority issued a warning to top managers at Binance, which states that the crypto exchange is not allowed to conduct regulated activities in the country. Because of this, the local division of the company got in a deplorable situation. The FCA ruling states that Binance cannot carry out any activity requiring licensing without the consent of the regulator. Since the company goes through the registration procedure in the authority, it has no right to provide unregulated services, for example, the ability to conduct transactions in the derivatives market. In addition, the management demanded that the company stop advertising campaigns launched earlier in the country in the coming days. Until June 30, the crypto exchange is obliged to warn its customers about the FCA restrictions on the site.

 Messari analysts are confident in the superiority of the USDC in the near future

Analysts at Messari concluded that USDC's popularity on ETH has grown much faster this year than Tether's. Experts believe that USDC has every chance of becoming the dominant stablecoin on ETH. The study found that interest in USD Coin increased so much that stablecoin was able to absorb a significant portion of USDT's market share. Messari believes that in the short term, this may contribute to a decrease in the share of Tether among stablecoins on ETH. Messari analyst Ryan Watkins noted that more than 40% of the stablecoins on ETH are in USDC. “Although this percentage is not as high as DAI, USDC leads by a wide margin in dollar terms and has become the preferred stablecoin in DeFi for now,” the analyst concluded.

And of course Rick was very active over 2021, and then suddenly all the coins moved away from Rick to the weak hands — the speculative traders that buy and sell. Now we’re seeing that cross back into moving to Rick," Willie Woo said, hinting at the hit of the singer Rick Astley "Never Let You Down".

The search for a respected former regulator to represent Binance’s interests in the U.K. follows an announcement last month by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), which said that Binance was not allowed to conduct any regulated activities in the country. As a result of the FCA’s action, British bank Barclays said earlier this week it was blocking customers from using its debit and credit cards to make payments to Binance.

 American billionaire says digital currencies are "a limited supply of nothing"

An investor and trader who rose to prominence after the mortgage crisis in 2008, John Paulson, sees digital currency as a bubble.

I would describe them as a limited supply of nothing. So to the extent there’s more demand than the limited supply, the price would go up. But to the extent the demand falls, then the price would go down. There’s no intrinsic value to any of the cryptocurrencies except that there’s a limited amount,” said Paulson. Earlier, the chief investment strategist of Bank of America, Michael Hartnett, expressed the opinion that BTC is "the worst of the bubbles."

 Analysts predict the growth of the Solana token

The price of the Solana token in 2021 has already increased 78 times, however, analysts believe that the value of the crypto coin will continue to grow. The Spartan Group believes that SOL will triple in price. "If $90B is the right valuation for $ADA, then $SOL is easily a 3X from here," Spartan Group analyst wrote on Twitter. Anonymous cryptanalyst Bluntz shared a similar point of view. He believes that according to technical analysis, the price of Solana is capable of reaching the $200 mark and even rising higher. Genesis Capital's head of digital assets and finance, Matt Ballensweig, is also confident that SOL will grow. He pointed to the rather modest capitalization of the token, even at today's prices.

 ETH rises above $3,500

On September 1, the cost of Ethereum surpassed the $3,500 mark. This happened for the first time since the fall of the cryptocurrency in May this year. According to Coinmarketcap, ETH was worth $3,535. Over the past 7 days, the coin rate has grown by almost 13%. In early August of this year, the London hard fork took place on the ETH network, which changed the mechanism for calculating commissions for operations. A part of the reward for miners who received it for mining a block is now burned.

 Solana CEO is confident that there are no bubbles in the cryptocurrency market today

Solana CEO Anatoly Yakovenko believes that currently there are no bubbles in the crypto market. It is noteworthy that the growth rate of the SOL rate is significantly higher than that of most digital currencies. Over the past month, Solana's price has tripled. Some crypto enthusiasts believe in the further growth of this token. “Now is a completely different time and it is not worth comparing the current situation with a bubble. In 2017, the bubble quickly inflated and quickly burst, but since then three years have passed and all this time people have been working, creating various solutions and projects. Now is the time when we have created the infrastructure so that new engineers and developers quickly “merge” into the ecosystem,” Yakovenko believes.

 US Senator: cryptocurrencies are the new shadow banks

Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren continues to criticize the crypto industry and urges regulators to take control of projects related to digital assets. This is stated in a series of public letters between Senator, SEC head Gary Gensler and Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen. Warren previously called on Yellen for a "coordinated and consistent regulatory strategy to mitigate the growing risks that cryptocurrencies pose to the financial system." In her address, the senator pointed out that "some" digital currencies are very volatile, and the unpredictability of their rate movements can provoke financial instability. Warren is actively promoting the initiative to "ban the holding of cash deposits that provide stablecoins in the United States." She is confident that this could slow down the market boom and reduce interest in such assets. “Crypto is the new shadow bank. It provides many of the same services, but without the consumer protections or financial stability that back up the traditional system. It’s like spinning straw into gold,” Warren said.

 [Censored word] has a conflict with the SEC

The SEC has warned [Censored word] about its readiness to take the project to court. The Securities and Exchange Commission considers it illegal for the crypto platform to launch the Lend service, which allows users to accrue interest on the digital assets of exchange clients, similar to securities. At the end of June this year, [Censored word] announced the launch of a service for cryptocurrency owners who would like to make a profit in USDC. Lend service offers a rate of 4% per annum, which is 8 times the average rate for high yield savings accounts in the country. “They [the SEC] refuse to tell us why they think it's [the service] a security, and instead subpoena a bunch of records from us (we comply), demand testimony from our employees (we comply), and then tell us they will be suing us if we proceed to launch, with zero explanation as to why,” “They [the SEC] refuse to explain to us why they think that it [the service] is a security, and instead asked for documents (we provided), summoned our employees for questioning (we agreed), and then said that they would file court, if we continue to launch without explaining the reasons, " said [Censored word] CEO Brian Armstrong. The new service of the crypto platform is a loan that the client provides to the exchange in the form of USDC. [Censored word] believes the new product has similarities to bank savings accounts.

 Ukrainian authorities legalize cryptocurrency

Today, on September 8, deputies of the Ukraine’s Verkhovna Rada in the second reading approved the draft law "On virtual assets" aimed at regulating the digital assets industry. Now the owners of cryptocurrencies will be able to legally perform transactions with them, and international projects - to register a blockchain business on the territory of Ukraine. The law reflects the concept and legal status of a digital asset, as well as secures ownership and transaction rights. International crypto-exchanges, where virtual assets are traded, have the opportunity to work on the territory of Ukraine. “Cryptocurrency holders will receive a number of benefits. Due to the fact that legislative regulation of this area will appear, they, at least, will be able to protect their condition in virtual assets if something happens. They will also be able to legally exchange crypto assets, declare them. This process will be completely "white". In addition, we expect that there will be a whole market of intermediary services for paying for goods with cryptoassets, storing them, exchanging them. This will expand the possibilities of their use,” said Alexander Bornyakov, Deputy Minister of Digital Transformation for IT Development.

Hong Kong is considering tightening controls on the digital asset market

Hong Kong authorities are exploring the possibility of tightening control over the digital asset market. The new regulations should help close the loopholes for illegal cryptocurrency transactions that remained in the 2019 law. The Hong Kong Securities and Futures Commission (SFC) plans to take over the regulation of crypto assets and issue licenses to projects from this industry. According to the rules of 2019, in order to avoid the attention of the regulator, companies had to choose tokens for work that do not formally fall under the definition of "security" and "futures". Julia Lyng, deputy executive director of the structure, pointed to "significant losses for investors." In her opinion, "Hong Kong should put an end to unlicensed cryptocurrency trading and engage in financial literacy of investors."

 Most South Korean crypto exchanges will cease operations

Most cryptocurrency platforms in South Korea will stop operating. We are talking about 40 out of about 60 exchanges. The reason behind it is non-compliance with FSC rules. The new requirements include compliance with the KYC mechanism together with partners, which are credit institutions. Banks do not seek to develop cooperation with trading platforms, which may attract additional attention of regulators. Crypto exchanges must be registered by September 24, but by September 17, companies are required to notify users of the likely closure if they fail to go through this procedure. Media reports that only 20 companies have complied with the regulations.

 The damage to payment companies due to the introduction of Chivo into the financial system of El Salvador was estimated at $1 billion

The probable damage to payment companies due to the introduction of the Chivo BTC wallet into the financial system of El Salvador could amount to $1 billion. This opinion was expressed by the former top manager of the Liquid crypto exchange Mario Gomez Losada. According to IHS Markit, about 70% of Salvadorans receive bank transfers from abroad. About 60% of such transactions are carried out by payment systems. 38% are processed by credit companies. Payment service fees are sometimes quite high for international transactions. For example, a $100 transfer via [Censored word] from a US account to El Salvador reaches $5. “Remittances are an area where the status quo in our traditional financial system is terrible, with extraordinarily high fees levelled at populations that can ill afford them.

 Warren again insists on the need to regulate the crypto market

The collapse of the crypto market and disruptions on the BTC exchanges indicate the need for regulation of this area by the SEC. This opinion was voiced by US Senator Elizabeth Warren. “In a matter of hours, the $400 billion in market value simply evaporated,” the senator said. The politician cited the example of a notional retail investor who lost his money when the market went down.

 Hackers attacked pNetwork project and stole $12.5 million worth of cryptocurrency

Unknown persons hacked pNetwork cross-chain platform. The team of the crypto project wrote about the loss of 277 bitcoins, which equals about $12.5 million. «We're sorry to inform the community that an attacker was able to leverage a bug in our codebase and attack pBTC on BSC, stealing 277 BTC (most of its collateral). The other bridges were not affected. All other funds in the pNetwork are safe,” wrote the pNetwork team. The project team also announced that vulnerabilities in the platform code have already been identified and work is underway to eliminate them. "The bridges will be restarted after they are secured," probably within hours, the company said. The pNetwork team published a message for hackers asking them to return the stolen assets for a reward of $1.5 million. However, it seems that the platform was hacked by "black" hackers who do not intend to return the stolen cryptocurrency.

At the same time, Turkey supports blockchain technology and intends to become the center of its development, but the enthusiasm of local authorities does not extend to crypto assets. “We have a separate war, a separate fight against them. We would never lend support to [cryptocurrencies]. Because we will move forward with our own currency that has its own identity.” the Turkish President said. In April of this year, the Central Bank of Turkey introduced an official ban on cryptocurrency payments. This means that local businesses have lost the ability to conduct transactions involving digital assets. Among the reasons for such a radical decision were high volatility and the threat of crime.

 Banks from the USA and Europe oppose the restrictions on working on the crypto market

The largest American and European banks, including JP Morgan and Deutsche Bank, are confident that the latest regulatory requirements limit the work of financial institutions on the crypto market. Earlier, it was decided that financial institutions that have digital assets must ensure their full backup. The initiative came from the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision of the Bank for International Settlements. The committee believes that when banks invest in crypto assets, it is necessary to adhere to a "conservative approach", since digital currencies pose a possible threat to the financial stability of a credit institution. “We find the proposals in the consultation to be so overly conservative and simplistic that they, in effect, would preclude bank involvement in crypto asset markets,” the Global Financial Markets Association said in a letter to the Basel Committee. Banks believe that the new requirements are an attempt by regulators to stop or deprive financial institutions of any incentives to develop in new markets.

Galaxy Digital founder Mike Novogratz said that he was "not nervous" about the short-term prospects of the digital asset market, until BTC fell below $ 40'000, and ETH - $ 2'800. “As long as those [levels] hold, I think the market is in good shape,” he said. The entrepreneur considers the fall of bitcoin on Monday, September 20, below the level of $43'000, a "healthy correction", which is caused by the market's concern about the decisions of American regulators and data on the probable default of the largest developer in China, Evergrande. Novogratz is confident that the fall in the rate of cryptocurrencies did not have a significant impact on institutional investors. “I see nothing but the interest and activity on the part of our clients and corporate investors,” added Novogratz.

 ETH futures are more popular than BTC with institutional investors

JPMorgan said that Ethereum futures are trading at a premium due to the flow of institutional funds from similar assets based on the main cryptocurrency. BTC futures after the September correction are trading below the spot price of the crypto coin. Analysts say the whale's attention to ethereum futures speaks to "healthy demand for ethereum compared to bitcoin from institutional investors." These are large organizations such as corporations or hedge funds. "This is a setback for Bitcoin and a reflection of weak demand by institutional investors that tend to use regulated CME futures contracts to gain exposure to Bitcoin,” JPMorgan analysts commented on the "strong demand divergence".

Thus, the entrepreneur expressed disagreement with the point of view of the head of Bridgewater Associates, Ray Dalio, who recently announced a potential threat to the first cryptocurrency. “I think overall that is a very extreme scenario and I do not see a developed country like the US or even all the G7 countries take such a harsh and strong step,” the CIO of Melanion Capital said. Comair said most governments want to regulate the digital asset industry in order to protect the interests of investors. And after the emergence of "adequate and correct regulation, we will see the full power of cryptocurrencies," says the crypto enthusiast.

 Opinion: BTC could rise in price 10 times

The rate of the first crypto-coin in the next 5 years may grow 10 times, but this is not a reason for buying it. This statement was made by the head of JPMorgan Jamie Dimon. The CEO of the investment bank believes that the authorities of different states will definitely establish supervision over bitcoin. And this to some extent will allow to limit it. “I don’t really care about Bitcoin. People spend too much time and energy on it. Whether regulation will wipe out the first cryptocurrency, I don't know. The authorities will set a framework anyway. This does not mean that bitcoin is not able to rise in value tenfold in the next five years. But if you invest borrowed money, then you are a complete fool. Speculation occurs in any market, even in communist countries. There is a lot of liquidity now, I will not be surprised at anything,” said Dimon.

Vitalik Buterin, commonly known as Ethereum co-founder, believes ETH can surpass BTC in the context of total market cap and as a tool for saving traders capital. “That’s quite possible. I think the main difference between these two assets is that the total value of bitcoin and its ecosystem directly depends on its total price. In contrast, ETH is exactly opposite”, Buterin says. Speaking about another DAO development and further extension, Vitalik noted the Gitcoin DAO and Optimism experiments aimed for mutual wealth and as project models which can positively influence the crypto industry. He believes DAO would become something better, something with a more significant meaning than it is now. “They definitely would find their place. I don’t see any unbreakable walls. Mostly, it’s a question of small issues that need to be fixed. When will one of the DAOs change strategy, or when will the two DAOs decide to merge? I think we’ll find it out soon enough”, he said.

 Bitcoin surpasses $62,000 amid approval of the first BTC-ETF futures

However, not all cryptocurrency market players were delighted with the news of the SEC approval of an exchange-traded fund for BTC. DeFi Unchained Capital CEO Parker Luce is confident that ETFs are not very profitable for investors. “The Exchange Traded Fund efficiently processes bitcoin as if it were a traditional financial asset. If an investor buys it through an ETF, then you assume additional market maker risks. As a result, he chooses one of the more risky ways of owning bitcoin than if he bought it on the exchange,” he said.

 Experts say bitcoin ETFs are more profitable for investors than ETF on bitcoin futures

MicroStrategy CEO Michael Sailor and Coinmetrics co-founder Nick Carter believe that BTC investment funds are more profitable for investors than ETFs on the first cryptocurrency futures. Sailor believes that if the SEC approves the launch of the BTC-ETF, serious investments will "flow" into them. “As soon as spot Bitcoin ETFs are launched in the US, I think you will see billions flow into them, then tens of billions, then hundreds of billions, and then trillions of dollars. This will be the final step necessary for Bitcoin to become one of the main assets of the Western world,” Sailor said. According to Nick Carter, ETFs on the futures of the first digital coin are “defective”, and the arguments of the regulator against the launch of cryptocurrency funds are “empty”. The expert believes that after the launch of the BTC-ETF in the United States, the trading volume within a month could reach $100 billion.

The classic bearish reversal setup happens when the price forms two consecutive peaks of almost the same height, with each upside move meeting with a strong correction toward a common support level, called the “neckline.” Typically, the price breaks below the support and falls by as much as the maximum height between the double top’s peak and neckline. So it appears, LTC is halfway through forming a double top pattern. Litecoin will need to extend its selloff to retest the neckline. Meanwhile, breaking below the support level would activate the double top breakout setup, with the profit target sitting near $200. Litecoin’s bearish reversal pattern is happening when inflation in the USA has peaked to a three-decade high, prompting investors to seek a hedge across various financial instruments. Litecoin “bull pennant” puts LTC target at $350 Dubbed a bull pennant, the bullish continuation pattern appears when the price consolidates sideways inside a triangular structure after a strong rally upward. Traders confirm a bullish breakout when the price breaks above the triangle’s upper trendline with strong volumes. In doing so, they watch the level at length equal to the height of the previous uptrend (flagpole) as their profit target. As a result, Litecoin’s price eyes an extended upside move toward $350. Meanwhile, failing to have a decisively bullish follow-through risks activating the double top setup. That brings the “multi-month ascending trendline support” in the picture as the next downside target should there be a bearish breakdown move; coincidentally, the target is also near $200.

 Cryptocurrency funds remain attractive to investors

Cryptocurrency funds continue to attract investors amid the fall in the digital asset market. CoinShares analysts have been recording new capital inflows into funds for 13 consecutive weeks. During the reporting week, this figure reached almost $151 million. A significant part of this amount came from institutional investors in BTC ($97.5 million). Since the beginning of the year, investors have invested about $6.5 billion in bitcoin. Cryptocurrency funds now manage assets in the form of the first cryptocurrency for a record $56 billion.

However, analysts noted a decline in volumes in the second half of the year. Currently, this average figure is $750 million per day. In the first six months of 2021, it was $960 million. The total inflow of funds to crypto funds since the beginning of this year is $9 billion. In total, the funds manage approximately $87 billion. One of the latest news was the launch of BTC-ETF futures trading by VanEck investment company on the Chicago Stock Exchange. This is the third such product presented on the American stock exchanges, in which large investors are interested.

Institutional investors, including banks, investment funds, insurance companies, are already actively integrating into the cryptocurrency market. Back in 2018, the head of Crypto Technology, Anton Sobin, confidently stated that the digital asset industry "over time, it will cease to be perceived as a fraud." “Any area of business or technological innovation goes through the stage of formation, after the initial analysis, an understanding of the relevance and profitability appears. It is at this moment that the sphere begins to be filled with money from the side of large investors. A race and struggle for a new market begin,” Sobin said. Today, the gradual adequate regulation of the digital currency industry and the positive reaction to this by market participants testify to the maturity of this direction. Reduced risk and excellent profitability make crypto coins attractive to large investors, so today the crypto sphere is actively attracting new fans.

 Large investors are expected to enter the decentralized finance market in 2022

An influx of institutions into the DeFi sphere is expected next year. As one of the founders of Chainlink Sergey Nazarov noted, this industry will continue to grow due to the interest of traditional banks in it. In his opinion, by expanding the types of on-chain collateral, there will be a basis for the emergence of new decentralized insurance solutions. “In 2022, the world will realize that there is a big market called DeFi. If PayPal has started working with cryptocurrencies, then think about why your users will not want to interact with storage, DeFi and so on tomorrow?” he said. Another of the founders of the 1inch Network DeFi project, Anton Bukov, believes that this area will increase its growth rates in the next 3-5 years. The expert stressed that decentralized exchanges should work 100 times faster than at present. This will make it easier for users to understand how DeFi works.

Senator from Australia Jane Hume recently spoke about the concept of decentralized finance. She believes DeFi will help Australia become a leader in innovation and economic progress. “Decentralized finance underpinned by blockchain technology will present incredible opportunities ‑ Australia mustn‘t be left behind by fear of the unknown,” said Hume, stressing that progress and innovation determine the country's economic future. The decentralized finance market is constantly evolving. Having started in 2021 at the level of $21.5 billion, the total TVL (the value of funds blocked in smart contracts of DeFi applications) has increased more than tenfold. By mid-November, the market volume reached $270 billion. This indicates that the DeFi industry is actively developing and will attract more and more players.

Bitcoin mining power demands in Texas could jump 5 times by 2023

As the state of Texas faces a rapid inflow of Bitcoin mining operations, its electrical infrastructure will have to support the industry’s expected 5,000 megawatts of additional power demands by 2023. The Bitcoin mining industry in Texas currently consumes around 500 to 1,000 MW of power. The Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT) anticipates that demand could increase as much as fivefold by 2023 and has planned an additional 3,000 to 5,000 MW according to reports.  This expansion comes amid Texas planning to become the home to 20% of the world’s Bitcoin mining operations. Texas emerged as the go-to destination for Bitcoin miners ever since the Chinese government officially banned Bitcoin mining earlier this year.

The state government has capitalized on China’s clampdown by making Texas a haven for crypto miners who can now enjoy a 10-year tax abatement, sales tax credits, and state-sponsored workforce training. Some Texas residents, however, are concerned that the existing power grid cannot be improved. ERCOT’s management of the state’s electrical grid came under heavy scrutiny in February 2021 when blackouts plagued the region during an extreme cold snap which left about 5 million residents without power for days. There are currently no proposals from the Texas state government to deal with potential issues that may arise from the increase in electrical demand from crypto miners. As suggested by the Texas Standard, miners could be flexible in shutting off their hardware during periods of peak demand or be charged a premium per kilowatt-hour if they want to stay on during peak demand periods.

 How the hamster and chimpanzee got luckier than professional traders

The investment world is full of legends and unusual stories. Some of the most interesting cases are the precedents associated with investments in cryptocurrencies and securities by ... animals. For example, the hamster Mr Goxx (the real name of the hamster is Max) was able to make money on digital assets. Its owner designed a special cage with tunnels and a wheel that was connected to special sensors. Firstly, the animal spun the wheel, using a random selection, the system stopped at one of 30 crypto coins. When Mr Goxx found himself in the right tunnel, the currency was sold, but if he ran to the left, the tokens were bought in the amount of 20 euros. Since June 12, the hamster has increased its portfolio by 98.2 euros, which is 25% of the starting investment of 390 euros. However, yesterday the owner of the hamster posted on Reddit that Mr Goxx died last Monday. “Mr. Goxx has brought joy to people all across the globe and reminded us not to take life too seriously. He shed light into dark moments of pandemic, inflation and many kinds of trouble. Thank you and rest in peace, Max. You will be missed, and your memory will live forever on the blockchain,” wrote the owner of the animal.

Another unusual case was the appearance on the stock market of a six-year chimpanzee named Raven. Almost 20 years ago, he managed to collect a portfolio of stocks, just throwing a ball at the target. Despite the seeming absurdity of this approach, the profitability of the shares of the IT companies selected by the monkey amounted to 365.4%. Raven has overtaken 10 thousand American funds and became the most successful chimpanzee on Wall Street according to the Guinness Book of Records. “As Raven did not have prior knowledge of how any particular Internet related companies have been performing, we took his ten picks and dated the prices back to the beginning of the year to provide easier year-to-date comparisons with the more traditional market indexes such as Standard & Poor's 500," stated Roland Perry, editor of Internet Stock Review. In the long run, however, the chimpanzee went bankrupt. Today, securities chosen by the animal are worth nothing. Do you think this is an accident, artificial hype or a pattern?
Why do animals manage to outplay professional traders?

 Glassnode does not believe in the correction continuation of bitcoin

Experts at Glassnode consider it unlikely that the November correction of the first cryptocurrency will continue, given the significant share of "profitable" coins and the balanced market position of crypto derivatives. The most serious pullback in 2021 was recorded in May-July, when the price of BTC fell by 54% from the maximum. In September, the decline was 37%. The amount of open positions on BTC options during the last two months of autumn varied in the $12 billion - $14 billion fork before falling to $10 billion after expiration at the end of November. The experts pointed out that the funding rates for perpetual contracts indicate a certain superiority of long positions. This level declined along with the fall in value, which indicates more cautious traders' sentiments.

Along with the correction, the number of open shorts could have increased, which, against the background of high leverage, does not cancel the cancellation of positions in both directions. In addition, experts pointed to the dominance of CME in the BTC futures market. With reference to open interest, the exchange's market share increased from 10% in September to the current 19.3%. Glassnode analysts recently concluded that long-term investors have adjusted the outflow of funds from their wallets and are accumulating BTC. Experts argued that the stocks of bitcoins with such investors have reached a multi-year high. Earlier, the CEO of SkyBridge Capital Anthony Scaramucci considered the latest correction of the main cryptocurrency "an opportunity to buy." He expressed the view that digital currencies have significant potential for further growth. Do you think now is a good time to buy bitcoin?

 Cryptocurrency market is in the red after a major investor's reduction of positions in bitcoins by $500 million

Last weekend, an unnamed trading company liquidated its positions in BTC worth $0.5 billion. The media note that this was a prerequisite for "aggressive" liquidations in the crypto derivatives market for $1.3 billion in a fork from $42,000 to $51,000. “Everyone has had a good year, and with this player coming from traditional finance, they have their eye on the macro environment which currently looks shaky,” explained Aya Kantorovich, CEO of bitcoin exchange FalconX. At the same time, the expert believes that the interest of investors in the market with a focus on the long term remains.

Another piece of news that turned out to be negative for all players in the digital asset market was the attack on BitMart. Representatives of the company announced the hacking of Ethereum and Binance Smart Chain hot crypto wallets. “We have identified a massive security breach involving one of the hot ETH wallets and one of the hot BSC wallets. We are currently trying to identify possible hacking methods. Hackers managed to withdraw assets worth about $150 million "- wrote the CEO of the exchange Sheldon Xia. According to him, the attack became possible due to the theft of the private key, as a result of which both wallets were compromised. The rest of the assets on the exchange are safe.

Xia announced the company's readiness to compensate for the losses suffered by the clients of the platform. BitMart also promised that users will gradually be able to deposit and withdraw their crypto assets from December 7. As of December 6, according to Coinmarketcap, the price of bitcoin is around $47,000. However, the market decline does not prevent some analysts from voicing positive forecasts for the market movement. Trader Michael van de Poppe expects bitcoin to hit $69,000 by the end of this year. The analyst is confident that BTC continues to move in a bullish trend, despite the recent decline. Do you think the trader's forecast will come true? And when can we expect a recovery in the cryptocurrency market?

 DOGE: unique story of the appearance and Elon Musk’s attention

How dogecoin transformed from a joke meme to one of the popular crypto assets December 8, 2013 is considered the launch day of one of the most controversial and attention-grabbing crypto coins community. Dogecoin is a prime example of how a meme, a joke, turned into an investment asset. Programmer Billy Marcus did not conceive of DOGE as a serious project. According to him, it took the programmer about three hours to make a parody of the rapidly growing digital currencies.

A meme popular in 2013 was chosen as the symbol of Dogecoin - a Shiba Inu dog named Kabosu with funny facial expressions. The slogan of the new crypto-coin was the phrase: "the digital currency preferred by the Shiba Inu around the world." Technically, DOGE is also very simple - unlike BTC or ETH, which are well-developed infrastructure and have serious functionality. However, after some retailers, medical and sports companies began to accept the meme cryptocurrency, it acquired the features of a real means of payment. Analysts believe that the development of the Dogecoin project is based on the popularity of the token among celebrities on social networks. One of them is Elon Musk, who has mentioned DOGE more than once.

In October of this year, the businessman wrote on Twitter that he supports the coin, as he considers it to be a "people's cryptocurrency." The entrepreneur, according to him, before supporting the token, spoke with Tesla and SpaceX employees, and many of them turned out to be the owners of Dogecoin. Trader Justin Bennett also expressed the opinion that the value of the token could grow by more than 1000%. “DOGE does what it does best. The last two breakouts have resulted in gains of 1000% or more. The latest round of consolidation lasted 3 times longer than the period leading up to the April 1,200 percent breakout,” Bennett said.

Another feature of DOGE is its high volatility, which attracts investors who are ready for the risk and instant market reversals. The spirit of adventurism, rebellion against the conservative financial system, and the meme subculture also influence the popularity of the token. As of the beginning of this December, the price of the meme cryptocurrency has dropped by almost 19% over the past week, reaching $0.17. Due to the volatility, DOGE was ranked 11th among the most popular tokens. However, this situation does not scare those players in the community. Dogecoin has every chance of breaking its own price records in 2022.

Will metaverse altcoins go mega popular in 2022?

Analyst Nicholas Merten believes that the most attractive tokens in 2022 will be altcoins from the realm of the metaverse. The expert pointed to the Metaverse Index, which has shown higher returns in recent months than ETH. According to the analyst, investing in the Metaverse Index is a great way to reach the entire metaverse realm. “We’ve seen here that overall, the metaverse is one of the few key sectors that’s actually continuously, over the past couple months or really the last second half of the year, outpacing Ethereum. That’s the kind of stuff that I want to look for as an investor. That’s the kind of stuff I want to buy into on a discount, and we can see that every time we get nice pullbacks here, we build the base, we start moving higher,” said the trader. As of December 13, the MVI token is at $234. In addition, its market capitalization reached $47 million, according to CoinGecko. For 3 months the price of MVI has grown by almost 170%.

Merten is also confident that high profits next year can be guaranteed by DeFi and NFT. Earlier, another analyst Austin Arnold voiced his opinion on the most promising tokens from the metaverse sphere. He believes that GAIA, THETA and ATLAS will be able to demonstrate significant growth in the near future. The popularity of the fantasy game Gaia Everworld is increasing, the trader noted. Arnold pointed out that Gaia Everworld is supported by, for example, AU21 Capital, Bullperks, EnjinStarter, Polygon. And the Theta Network project, according to the analyst, is becoming an important infrastructure for the creation of the metaverse. Star Atlas continues to grow rapidly, says Arnold. Previously, it exceeded the 100 thousand mark. The trader regards this as a huge achievement for a startup.

Do you think the metaverse altcoin sector is a promising investment? What is the future for it in 2022?

 What are the development prospects for the Solana project? Solana Project: Present and Future.

Solana is a crypto coin, which is in 5th place in terms of market capitalization. Following a recent DDoS attack, it has emerged as the leader in network development charts. According to Santiment, SOL has become the leading blockchain in the last month. From November 12 to December 13, Solana's daily GitHub requests rose to 90, overtaking Polkadot with 76 and Cardano with 65. On December 9th, Solana's network slowed down significantly due to a DDoS attack. The developers managed to mitigate the impact without shutting down the network. However, the community was seriously alarmed by the vulnerability of the Solana blockchain. “Solana is ready to take on a DDoS attack again. This attack took advantage of the fundamental design flaws that SOL is responsible for as it sacrifices decentralization and safety for speed, ignoring the consequences of this compromise with Proof of Historу & Turbine», - said the founder CyberCapital Justin Bons. Despite the concerns of the cryptocurrency industry participants about the security of the Solana blockchain, it is one of the most actively growing smart contract networks this year. The network is increasingly being chosen by projects in the field of non-financial tokens and decentralized financing.

For example, Twitch founder Justin Kahn is launching Fractal, an NFT marketplace based on the Solana blockchain. The company has already agreed with gaming studios, which are ready to provide their own non-fungible tokens on the marketplace. Fractal users will be able to purchase assets both directly from platform partners and create their own NFTs. Justin Kahn claims to launch the first NFT marketplace focused on NFT in the gaming industry. "The transition to in-game assets, which are NFTs on the blockchain, will open up real ownership and new levels of interaction in games for players," said the founder of the project. Due to its growing popularity among users, Solana is often compared to Ethereum. Some members of the crypto community consider the crypto coin to be an "ETH killer". But will the project be able to guarantee the safety of its users in the future? Will SOL hold its position as one of the most popular crypto coins in the long run?

Opinion: Half of real estate transactions will use digital assets

According to the renowned real estate agent Ryan Serhant, over the next 5 years, cryptocurrencies will be used in about half of real estate transactions. The TV host for Million Dollar Listing New York said 2021 is likely to see a surge in virtual real estate activity. Companies and individuals are ready to pay hundreds of thousands of dollars in ethereum and other digital coins in order to “stake out” the right to objects. Some people prefer to pay with cryptocurrencies when buying real estate in the real world. "I think we're in a very unique point in time. We'll end up doing, in New York alone, maybe one or two deals this month that are wallet to wallet. And then six or seven deals this month using an intermediary like BitPay,” said Serhant.

The stellar real estate agent believes lending institutions should add cryptoassets to their product line. This will simplify the mortgage lending procedure. “Right now, if I go to an institutional lender, and I want to go get a loan on a home and use their financing, and if I say all my assets are in a mixture of Solana, Ethereum, and Bitcoin, the bank's gonna say, 'Yeah, that's too risky, too volatile, we can't really lend on that, or we'll lend on 25% of it or something,'" added Serhant. According to him, while realtors are deprived of the opportunity to freely sell real estate to any user who has a BTC wallet. The authorities are monitoring compliance with the KYC rules and procedures, which are adopted in order to prevent offenders and members of the US sanctions list from buying real estate in the United States using crypto coins.

“I'm definitely an advocate of safe money. But at the same time, if being able to purchase your cryptocurrency makes purchasing things like homes and everything else, faster, easier, amongst many other reasons, that goes a long way, ”summed up Serhant. It is now legal to buy real estate with digital assets in Switzerland, Singapore, Indonesia and the United States. Such transactions are absolutely legal, provided that the legislation of the state on whose territory the real estate is located is observed. For example, in the United States, the settlement of a transaction is controlled by a notary through an escrow account. He also opens an account at a local crypto exchange, where the buyer transfers funds in the equivalent of the purchase price in US dollars.

The seller can receive money only after the transfer of ownership of the object to the buyer. At the same time, in the United States, the buyer is required to provide proof of the legal origin of the funds. Do you think cryptocurrencies will be able to revolutionize the real estate world and become a full-fledged means of settlement for such transactions?

 Trump continues to view bitcoin as a threat to the American and global economy

Former US President Donald Trump is still confident that bitcoin has the potential to destroy the global economy. At the same time, the billionaire supported the initiative of his wife Melania to launch a cryptocurrency project. She previously launched a Solana-based NFT marketplace, as well as her own collection of non-fungible tokens. In a recent interview, Trump noted that he has never been a fan of digital assets. In his opinion, cryptocurrencies can harm both the American and international financial systems. At the same time, the businessman refrained from detailed explanations why he considers investments in these assets dangerous. “I think the currency should be the dollar, so I was never a big fan but it's building up bigger and bigger and nobody's doing anything about it. I want a currency called the dollar, I don't want to have all of these others, ”he said.

During his presidency, Trump stated several times that the United States needs to be careful with digital currencies, especially BTC, since the main mining facilities are located in China. The ex-politician argued that bitcoin should not be used as a payment instrument because of the volatility of this asset, and "its value is taken straight out of thin air." Meanwhile, the CEO of Microstrategy Michael Sailor does not believe that the first crypto-coin can compete with the US dollar. In his opinion, bitcoin is a global reserve asset, and the US dollar is the world currency. The entrepreneur predicted that in the future, BTC will be the best option for protecting against inflation. “There will be volatility, but it seems to me that there is now a general recognition that the world needs an inflationary hedge. If you have bitcoin, don't sell it,” advised the CEO of Microstrategy.

According to Sailor, he has over 17,000 bitcoins in his account. Their total value is approximately $860 million. The CEO of Microstrategy, according to his own words, has never sold his personal savings in the form of BTC. Do you think Michael Saylor's strategy is correct?

Financial expert spoke about the reasons for the fall in the BTC price

Former manager of hedge fund Goldman Sachs Raul Pal commented on the likely prerequisites for a decline in the price of the main cryptocurrency. In November of this year, the crypto coin surpassed the $68,000 mark, but now bitcoin is trading at about $46,000. The CEO of Real Vision TV believes that this is due to the profit taking by large investors. According to Pal, the process has already been completed, so one should not expect a serious decline in the BTC rate.

“It looks like they finished. Last week the market was quite volatile, as it always happens when the reporting period ends and everyone knocked out their balances,” the expert noted. Raoul Pal also pointed out that sales in Asia may still continue, but a fairly large-scale rise in the crypto market is expected early next year. The reason lies in the inflow of capital from institutional investors, which will again be transferred to digital currencies.

Former manager of hedge fund Goldman Sachs expects large investors to take an increased focus on cryptocurrencies in 2022 due to the active adoption of digital assets. Noel Acheson of Genesis Trading agreed with Raoul Pal. She noted the significant involvement of institutional investors in the crypto industry.

“The growth in interest from institutions over the past year has been impressive and we see strong signs that the trend will continue next year. They will invest both directly and in companies dealing with infrastructure in the cryptocurrency market,” she said. In October of this year, JPMorgan analysts announced the reasons why the first cryptocurrency rose by more than 35%. The report for clients said that a key prerequisite for the rise in bitcoin price was the increased demand for it from institutions.

 Opinion: crypto industry can reach stock market scale

In the future, the cryptocurrency industry may reach stock market volumes due to the increasing investor interest in digital assets. This opinion was expressed by the Governor of the Bank of Korea Lee Joo Yeol. Many believe that the main cryptocurrency is a hedging asset that can "save" their savings, and bitcoin supporters are confident that BTC can replace gold. A representative of the Korean regulator pointed out that digital currencies have already gained popularity as investment instruments. “I cannot yet say that digital assets are better than gold, but if the global cash flow continues to move towards NFTs and cryptocurrencies, it is likely that this industry will grow to the scale of the stock market,” said Ju Yeol. And the head of the NH All100 consulting center Kim Hee Jong believes that digital assets are not yet included in the investment portfolios of clients due to high volatility, and local financial institutions do not risk working with them due to the tough position of the authorities.

However, the number of people willing to invest in crypto assets has increased significantly. According to Hee Jong, today not only young people, but also older clients are interested in investing in digital currencies. Meanwhile, the beginning of 2022 was marked by a serious drop in the cryptocurrency market. Over the week, the price of BTC has dropped by almost 12%. Other popular digital assets fell 22%, hitting multi-month lows. Experts note the growth of volatility in the crypto market at the beginning of 2022 against the background of the absence of a significant number of investors. As the leading strategist of EXANTE, Janis Kivkulis, noted, a drop in trading volumes was recorded on many crypto platforms. According to him, part of the positions that were betting on the growth of digital assets were closed, and some of the investors liquidated them in the wake of panic. The recent unrest in Kazakhstan, which is one of the mining centers, has also become a negative factor for the cryptocurrency industry. Currently, the Internet is unstable on the territory, and banks are working with restrictions. However, experts predict that along with the stabilization of the political situation, the miners of Kazakhstan will resume work in the previous mode.

Another prerequisite for the fall of cryptocurrencies was the Fed's position on tightening monetary policy. In the first week of January, a document was published, from which it can be concluded that the regulator is leaning towards a rapid increase in the interest rate and a decrease in the volume of assets on the balance sheet. This, experts believe, was the reason for the outflow of funds from risky assets. The NASDAQ Composite index fell by 4.5% in 7 days, and the value of BTC followed the securities of large IT companies, said the head of Binance in Eastern Europe Gleb Kostarev. Analysts believe that the decline will continue in the future. However, they do not exclude the market recovery by the middle of this year, including due to the continuing interest of institutions. How do you think the digital asset market will behave in the near future?

Crypto enthusiast voiced two scenarios for the development of the digital currency industry

Well-known American stand-up and TV host Joe Rogan believes in digital currencies and thinks that in the future, each company will start issuing its own non-fungible tokens. Together with fellow podcaster Adam Curry, he discussed the state of the cryptocurrency market. "Either the cryptocurrency industry will completely disintegrate, or it will give people a real chance to fix their financial situation and improve their lives," - Joe Rogan voiced two possible scenarios for the development of the industry. Curry noted that today many of the users do not want to become part of the existing system, so they are creating alternative ecosystems. The podcaster talked about investing in bitcoin, adding that he "jumped on the train", since it is BTC that is able to guarantee the safety of his assets.

Adam Curry believes that the monetary system is ineffective, which leads to poverty and war, inflation occurs, since money is associated with oil. Joe Rogan suggested that in the future, companies will create their own collectible tokens for customers to use to buy products. “Apple can easily release NFTs through which users will buy products. This can be called an alternative version of the shares,” said the TV presenter. But Curry did not agree with Rogan's opinion, as he believes that large companies and authorities will focus on introducing digital assets from regulators. All citizens will start digital wallets, which will be a direct link between users and the Fed, and the demand for familiar banking services will disappear, the podcaster is convinced. Billionaire and entrepreneur Bill Miller recently spoke about digital assets. He talked about what prompted him to invest in MicroStrategy bonds.

The billionaire's company Miller Value Partners has invested more than $1 billion in the main cryptocurrency. According to the entrepreneur, "there is no other asset with the same growth potential and liquidity." "Bitcoin is still a new and underdeveloped asset with a huge potential market, and it has a great, logical protocol with distributed governance," said the businessman. Miller doesn't believe regulators are planning to ban BTC. He recalled that the main crypto-coin has existed for about 12 years and shows itself perfectly without the intervention of the authorities. In addition, the billionaire noted that regulators in the United States have become more positive towards Bitcoin, prompting large investors to invest in the crypto asset. “Bitcoin is performing much better than just an asset for storing wealth. When the volatility of BTC approaches the volatility of government bonds, then the bitcoin rate will be much higher, the capitalization will be huge, and the profit will be insignificant. I think when it comes to that, bitcoin will become more often used for exchange,” said Bill Miller

Do you agree with the American billionaire?

 Will the main crypto coin reach $75,000 by the end of this year?

The head of the SEBA crypto bank, Guido Buehler, announced a forecast according to which the price of bitcoin will rise to $75,000 by the end of 2022. He made such a statement during the Crypto Finance event, which took place in Switzerland. “Our internal valuation models point to a price between $50,000 and $75,000. I am quite sure that we will see this level,” the expert noted. According to Buehler, institutional investors can influence the growth in the value of the first cryptocurrency, the only question is timing. In addition, he stated that BTC volatility will be high, but the digital asset may reach new all-time highs this year.

Earlier, the bitcoin rate rose to $44,500. Analysts attribute this to the data of the US Department of Labor, which reported a record increase over the past four decades (7%) in consumer inflation in the last month of last year. According to Coinmarketcap on January 16, BTC was worth about $42,800. According to Alfacash CEO Nikita Soshnikov, there is a strong possibility that next week crypto market players will see a moderately bullish mood. The crypto expert believes this trend will help keep the price of BTC above $42,000. However, the cost of bitcoin will not rise above $46,000, since the coin lacks fundamental indicators for such growth. “The most likely scenario is that bitcoin will continue to fluctuate in the range of $42,000-46,000,” Soshnikov predicted.

He believes that the next wave of volatility in the cryptocurrency market may occur in mid-March. It is then that the US should raise the key rate. The head of Alfacash said that at first the cost of the first digital currency could drop sharply, but then BTC has every chance for a quick recovery and growth. And Andrey Podolyan, CEO of Cryptorg, is sure that the resistance level is at $45,700-46,000. According to his forecast, it is unlikely that BTC will be able to break through this level in the next week. Which expert do you agree with?

 Fidelity Digital Assets: the authorities of the states opposing the main cryptocurrency will be forced to invest in BTC in the future

Governments in countries that do not currently believe in the value of bitcoin will have to consider buying BTC as an insurance tool in the future. This conclusion was voiced in Fidelity Digital Assets. According to the analysts, this year an active period of adoption of the first digital currency by various states will begin. Over the past two years, institutionals have begun to develop a new type of asset. The experts compared the sanctions of the Chinese authorities on cryptocurrencies and the approval of bitcoin by El Salvador as a legitimate payment instrument.

“Time will certainly show which way is more successful,” the experts noted. Fidelity experts do not believe in the option of a direct ban on bitcoin by most states, since in this case they will “lose a significant part of their wealth and opportunities.” Analysts are confident that other countries will follow the example of El Salvador. “Very high-stakes game theory comes into play here – if adoption increases, countries that receive bitcoin today will be in a better competitive position than those who delay. In other words, small costs can be paid today as a hedge against potentially much larger costs in the future,” the experts explained.

Specialists of the investment company Invesco also spoke about the main crypto coin. The fall of the BTC rate from the historical maximum of $69,000 to $42,000 is considered by them to be “deflation of the cryptocurrency bubble”. The experts have suggested that the price of bitcoin may continue to decline. The company announced this in the list of "incredible, but possible" results of the current year. We are talking about events that, according to Invesco analysts, should come true by at least 30%. The drop to $42,000 earlier this year is absolutely in line with the bubble pattern, experts say. The trajectory suggests that bitcoin will lose about 45% of the price within 12 months after the peak period.

“The pattern also suggests that the bubbles typically deflate over the next two years. Therefore, we think it is not too difficult to imagine Bitcoin falling below $30,000 this year,” the experts said. Whether the forecast of Invesco analysts will come true, we will find out very soon.

 The US Securities and Exchange Commission may tighten control over crypto projects

The chairman of the SEC, Gary Gensler, is concerned about the reluctance of cryptocurrency platforms to cooperate with regulators. The official hopes that in the near future companies will begin to build effective interaction with local authorities. Gensler said that compliance with US laws by crypto projects means a lot to clients of such firms. And only thanks to the control of regulators over the platforms, their investors will be able to feel protected by analogy with the protection of the interests of security holders. “I’ve asked the SEC staff to look at every way to get these platforms inside the investor protection. If the trading platforms don’t come into the regulated space, it’d be another year of the public being vulnerable,” Gensler said.

The head of FINRA, Robert Cook, said that the organization plans to consider a possible tightening of the conditions for the sale of digital currencies. The structure that controls the brokerage will focus on advertising services in the field of crypto assets and data disclosure. FINRA will not make sweeping changes to the rules, but plans to issue notices. They will talk about the existing norms and how they should be developed for the high-quality protection of the interests of investors. In the field of cryptocurrencies, FINRA is ready to consider additional criteria for situations related to the purchase of unregulated products, in particular digital assets.

"We're not going to fundamentally change the current rules or regulatory structure - that's what the SEC and other federal agencies are doing," Cook said. “However, our partners are investing significant amounts in new cryptocurrencies with high volatility. The new rules will help us keep investors safe.” What do you think of the regulators' initiatives? How will this affect market participants in the future?

 Expert believes that there is a bias towards digital assets

A fairly small percentage of cryptocurrency assets are used in illegal transactions, as stated in numerous studies. This opinion was expressed by the former head of [Censored word], the current head of Figure Asiff Hirji. He is sure that the requirements of regulators for digital assets are overstated. “If we apply the rules that are used today in relation to the regulation of cryptocurrencies to all global payment mechanisms, our money will become completely illegal. No country will allow the circulation of funds,” the expert said. According to Hirji, cryptocurrencies can significantly reduce transaction costs. Interestingly, as early as last year, the media, citing former intelligence officer Michael Morell, wrote that the extent of the use of BTC in illegal operations was greatly exaggerated.

The requirements of regulators for crypto projects and the recent fall in the market do not scare investors from MicroStrategy Inc. Its chief financial officer Phong Le said that the company plans to continue to invest in bitcoins. “Our bitcoin strategy comes down to Buy&Hold. Therefore, if there is excess cash flow or other ways to raise funds, we continue to invest in the first cryptocurrency,” said the top manager. He did not announce specific plans for the purchase of the main digital coin for the current year. But according to Le, MicroStrategy, which has about 124,000 bitcoins worth more than $4.6 billion, does not intend to sell its crypto assets.

The investment company ARK Invest believes that by 2030 the BTC rate may rise to $1.36 million, and the capitalization of ETH - up to $22.5 trillion. Analysts explained their forecast for bitcoin with the hope of its legalization by various countries as a payment instrument and the growth of the relative share of cryptocurrency in the capitalization of global assets. Experts pointed to the "healthy" network metrics of the BTC blockchain. In particular, they noted the growing number of accumulating bitcoin addresses and the coins they own. And what do you think about it?

 JPMorgan lowers BTC fair valuation from $150,000 to $38,000

JPMorgan analysts believe that the high volatility of the asset is hindering the adoption of the main crypto-coin by institutional investors. Thus, experts explained the decrease in the fair value of BTC from $150,000 to $38,000. “Our previous forecast that the bitcoin to gold volatility ratio would drop two times by the end of 2022 seems unrealistic. We lower the fair value of the first cryptocurrency based on this proportion to 1/4 of $150,000, or $38,000,” the report says. A year ago, investment bank analysts stated that the theoretical long-term goal for the value of the first crypto coin would be $146,000. JPMorgan announced the convergence of BTC volatility with gold volatility. Experts also assured that the generation of millennials will be the driver for the adoption of the main digital asset.

JPMorgan now believes that “open interest in futures and the volume of exchange balance sheets indicate less panic or liquidation of positions than in May last year, especially in relation to large crypto investors.” Q9 Capital Managing Partner James Quinn spoke about a significant influx of clients to the crypto platform. He attributes this to the desire of investors to acquire digital currency at a low cost. According to him, “some people actually see this as an opportunity to buy bitcoin at a lower price than a few months ago.” Quinn believes that the market drop may be due to the increasing correlation of the BTC rate with traditional assets.

“As more people come out of traditional finance into this space, more new investors are coming in. Over time, they will own both digital assets and all types of traditional assets,” said the crypto enthusiast. Do you agree with James Quinn's prediction?

 How does the monitor help save up?

If you often exchange cryptocurrency or fiat money, then most likely you have chosen one reliable exchanger for yourself. This makes sense, especially from the viewpoint of convenience. However, this approach does not always give the most profitable results.

And if you still don’t have a favorite exchanger, then it is crucial to make the right choice. What is needed for that, first and foremost? Correct, the relevant information.

Any information gets old with time, but in case of trading rates it happens in a blink of an eye. Prices in exchangers are made up of the current market exchange rate and the markup of the service itself. Cryptocurrencies are extremely volatile, hence such fluctuations in exchange rates.

Using monitor, you will always find the most profitable option to buy or sell, and as a result, you will considerably save up.

Every second BestChange monitors and updates rates for all exchange pairs (there are more than 200,000) and for each exchanger, which there are now 247. This means that at any time you can go to the monitor’s website and see the best deals for the currency pair you are interested in.

We guarantee that all exchangers that you see in the list are working. We have strict requirements for listing, and after listing we continue checking the services for performance. We also recommend reading the reviews.

Do you agree that you can only trust your money to such services that have earned the trust? Let’s talk about indicators to choose exchanges and the role of the monitor in this. does a due compliance check of all exchangers before adding them to the website, and later on continues watching over their reliability and reputation. That’s why the risk for the users is minimal. To keep good relationships with the large monitor, exchangers try to timely solve the problems the users write about in complaints.

Some pieces of advice when choosing exchangers through

If you see negative reviews, please check whether the exchanger has responded to them and whether the problem was solved.
Please pay attention to the duration of exchanger’s work. As a rule, we do not add exchangers that have been working less than half a year, but the longer the exchanger has been successfully working, the better.
Please pay attention to the available reserves — the large amount of funds for all exchange directions guarantees that the money will be enough for everyone.
Sign of the quality of the exchanger is an additional check and official registration. Please study this information together with users’ reviews, working condition of the website and the current status on the monitor.
If you are selecting an exchanger on your own, without our help, we recommend studying at least three factors. Firstly, check the service in blacklists and read the reviews about it on independent platforms. Secondly, check the data of domain registration on If the domain is only a few days old, give such an exchanger a wide berth, however attractive rates it would offer. Thirdly, the domain must not be located on a free hosting.

 Please be careful and happy exchanging!

❗Situation: you need to exchange money for a rare direction (for example, AdvCash TRY for Solana, like in the picture), and your favorite exchanger does not offer such an option. What to do? There are hundreds of exchangers in the world, and it is impossible to visit each of them and check whether they have the exchange direction you need.

To avoid such a problem, BestChange works for you.

The wide range of currencies and payment systems allows choosing exchangers for any occasion. Choose the currency you give, and you want to get, and even if there is a single exchanger where you can perform such an operation, you will find it.

You can also visit the section “Popular” and, in one click, select the needed direction in order not to search for it in the list. For example, today, these are the top directions by the searches:

Tether TRC20 → PM

PayPal USD → Perfect Money USD

Visa/MasterCard USD → PM

There are thousands of possible directions. As a result, you receive an opportunity not only to find exchangers supporting the required currencies but also to select the most profitable among them. We wish you a smooth exchange!

How the monitor adheres to the principles of transparency

Economy and convenience are two key benefits that the use of brings. To save up maximally, we adhere to the principle of transparency.

Having chosen an exchange direction, you will see a list of exchangers that support it, sorted by rate. The rates are updated every 5 seconds, so they are always relevant. At the same time, you can notice that when updating the page, exchangers change their places, some become more profitable, and others vice versa.

The rate in an exchanger depends on several factors:

- The relevant market rate for the trading pair. It is taken by exchangers from crypto exchange platforms, such as Binance or Poloniex.
- The commission of an exchanger. As a rule, it is not specified directly but is included in the rate. That is why it is most profitable to select exchangers via the monitor.
- The amount of exchange. Some exchangers levy additional commissions for an exchange of specific amounts, for example, up to 100 USD. In this case, the largest rate possible is indicated in the monitor. The service must issue a warning about such nuances at the time of creating an order, this is one of our requirements for exchangers.

When choosing, please pay attention to the icons next to the name of an exchanger (see the picture) — there can be important information. For example, whether the rate is fixed at the moment of an order creation — this is very important because during the order processing the value of the currency can significantly drop and you will receive not what you expected.

We try to provide all the information that can be important for you. Please choose attentively, and then the losses on currency exchanging will be minimal.

How protects you against the risks associated with cryptocurrency exchanging

✅In listing there are around 250 exchangers, each of them is checked using dozens of parameters. But there are also hundreds of exchangers that cannot prove their security. Why shouldn’t you use their services? Let’s view the main risks.

❗Firstly, they can simply not pay you. This is the most straightforward type of fraud, which is, unfortunately, very common. When the website’s reputation will be completely spoiled, the threat actors will simply create a new domain and continue their work.
❗Secondly, there can be hidden commission. You see one amount when creating an order, but in the end, receive an absolutely different one. You won’t be able to prove anything, as the regulation of crypto exchangers is still very weak. And if information about commission is written somewhere in a small font, you won’t be able to fight for your money at all.
❗Thirdly, technical mistakes. If an exchanger is new, and even if its creator wasn’t going to trick anyone, you still can lose money due to technical imperfections. By the way, all exchangers listed on, have been working for at least six months, which means that such situations are highly improbable.
❗Fourthly, there is such a common type of fraud as phishing. A domain with a name similar to the name of a popular exchanger is created. The design is also made similar. To avoid such risk, you need to go to the exchanger directly from and not through side links.

Do not risk, use the monitor, because it’s absolutely free and very convenient.

How guards your anonymity when making financial transactions

Anonymity is one of the most important and valuable things on the internet. It means that nobody will learn information about you that you don’t want to provide. Especially if this information is about finances. The majority of exchangers are anonymous and do not require a customer to specify personal information. In rare exclusions, you may be asked to verify your bank card.

Monitor also provides the maximal confidentiality:

- You don’t need to register. After you visit the website, you can start selecting an exchanger straight away.
- Verification is also not required. We do not offer financial, custodial or payment services, which means we do not store users’ funds or engage in transactions. That’s why KYC/ AML requirements do not apply to us.
- We track exchangers that require card or other user data verification and display corresponding icons next to their names.
- We do not store personal data about clients and do not transfer them to anyone. Personal data includes, for example, an e-mail that you provide when contacting technical support or analysis of user behavior when entering captcha.

If you need anonymity on the internet and when making financial transactions, please pay attention to the condition of each specific exchanger. We, on our side, are doing our best to reflect any changes in their policy.

How BestChange selects exchangers to add to its listing

How do we choose what exchangers to add to the listing?

We receive a large number of requests to add exchangers to the monitor. We, in our turn, have strict requirements that the service must meet. The safety of the users is our utmost priority.

Here are just a few key parameters pays attention to in order to make a decision:

- Duration of successful work — half a year minimum. There can be exclusions, for example, if an exchanger is launched by a famous exchange or another service.
- Functionality of the website must include a request form available without registration, affiliate program and full-fledged English version.
- Total reserves must be not less than 10 000 dollars.
- Protected HTTPS connection.
- Contacts via which users can get in touch with the website creators. In separate cases, we ask the owners to verify their identity.
- The design or name should not imitate the already added exchanger to not confuse clients.

Every listing request is thoroughly and manually considered. We do not work with exchangers that have a bad reputation on the Internet. You can also hold your own analysis — click on the number of reviews in the table for selection of an exchanger, then you will be transferred to its page and will learn more detailed information, including the length of its work and the country of registration.

 Exchanger reserves: why is this important?

Reserves mean the total amount of funds on the account of the service, which allows you to freely exchange in different directions. At BestChange, all exchangers have reserves of at least $ 10,000 in dollar terms. Even though famous and popular exchangers have much more substantial reserves, for separate directions reserves can be low and not overlap due to the specifics of payment systems.

 Why do you need to pay attention to the reserves of an exchanger?

It’s simple — an exchanger won’t be able to pay the request the amount of which exceeds its reserves for a specific payment direction. For example, if the reserves are just 10 000 WMZ, you won’t be able to sell cryptocurrency for 15 000 WMZ. That’s why you should always pay attention to this indicator when you are choosing a service with the help of the monitor — it is reflected in the table, you use the tab “Calculator” where the reserves are indicated automatically and the search results can be filtered.

We try to keep the relevant information updated and demand exchangers to timely update information about reserves.

Icons of exchangers in the list, what can you learn from them?

BestChange has developed a system of symbols characterizing the specifics of an exchanger. We recommend you make a habit of paying attention to them, in this case, you will be able to learn if a certain exchanger will suit you in a blink of an eye. It saves time, otherwise, you would need to visit the website, create and order and, possibly, only then find out that verification of a card is required, or some other details.

Here are some characteristics of exchangers which we mark with icons:

- Manual or semi-automatic mode of exchange is used.
- Additional commissions are charged.
- Registration, card or documents verification are required.
- The service has a built-in online wallet.
- Transactions are carried out by a legal entity or from a third-side payment system.
- There are delays (hold) when paying.

And many more. For example, if you are exchanging cash, we will inform you if an exchanger has this service at a charge. We will also inform you about a floating exchange rate and other important things. Please remember to pay attention to the icons, all you need to do is to hover your mouse over them to learn the details.

What is the rating of the exchanger in the payment system?

Going to the page of any exchanger on BestChange (for this, you need to click on the number of reviews in the table after choosing a payment direction), you will see such indicators as Advanced Cash TS, WebMoney BL, Perfect Money TS. What do they mean and why are there sometimes numbers, and sometimes a dash?

The thing is that some payment systems assign levels to users — this helps other users understand how much you can trust a counterparty. For example:

✅Advanced Cash Transaction Score
✅WebMoney Business Level
✅Perfect Money Trust Score

If there is a dash instead of a rating, then the exchanger does not work with this payment system, therefore, it does not have a rating in it or it is not important. Pay attention to the listed indicators if you plan to work with one of these payment systems through an exchange office.

In addition, the “MyWOT Rating” parameter can be seen on the exchanger page. Web Of Trust is an add-on for assessing the security of a website and based on the results of its checks, you can determine whether the website is trustworthy. Basically, this check takes into account the opinion of users.

Reviews on Bestchange — how should you write them correctly?

We, time and again, say that our website is always on the customer’s side. We watch over all reviews and attract the management of the monitor to solve the issue if the client does not receive their money on time. As a rule, the situation gets solved positively in the end. But what can you do if your review isn’t published? Don’t panic — check if the review meets several simple rules:

- For the review to get displayed on the website, you need to confirm it via email. It is done to combat spam. An unpublished review is kept for a week and then gets deleted, so please remember this nuance.
- There is a difference between a “comment” and a “complaint”. Please choose the first option if you have received the money but simply want to comment on the service’s work. The second option is only for the cases when the money hasn’t been received. After the problem is solved and the funds are credited, you need to withdraw the complaint (at that, it won’t be deleted, which means other users will still be able to see it).
- Naturally, profanity and insults are forbidden, as well as calls for interethnic or any other hatred.
- The text of the review mustn’t copy another one that is displayed on the website.
- We do not display comments of an advertising nature.

Write the truth in a calm and detailed manner, that will help other users!

KYC (Know Your Customer) check is a wide-spread requirement of regulators that combat money laundering with the help of cryptocurrency. Of course, you have noticed, that in the last 2-3 years this check is being implemented by more and more crypto-services, including exchanges and wallets. And what about exchangers?

The majority of them do not yet require passing KYC. The monitor BestChange tries to track services with an exception to the rule and mark them with a special mark. However, exchangers sometimes change their terms of service, so when creating an order for this or that payment direction you can come across a requirement to verify your identity. If you do not want to do it, simply pick another exchanger for the same direction.

 We would like to remind you that it is important to look through the terms of service of exchangers that you use. It will help avoid many surprises.

At the same time, it should be noted that verification is by no means a way to steal customer data and use it for illegal purposes. This is just a necessity caused by the requirement of a regulator, and a reliable exchanger will never give away data about a user to third parties.

Why is the monitor the best helper in exchanging cryptocurrency?

Cryptocurrency is very volatile, its rate changes sometimes by dozens per cents under just a few hours. To always exchange at the most pleasant price out of possible, we suggest you use the monitor BestChange. Why it’s convenient:

- System of reviews and claims for each exchanger. In case there is a complaint, the exchanger representatives must get in touch and solve the issue.

- Save. Adds a direction to the top of the list which is located in the tab “Popular” on the left. It’s especially handy if the direction is rare — you won’t need to waste your time selecting it.
- Discrepancy. A contact form to get in touch with us will open. You can use the form if you have noticed a discrepancy between rates/reserves specified in the monitor and the actual ones. Also, here you can specify other discrepancies, for example with manual/automatic exchange. Please write to us, it helps us become better.

 There are many factors that influence the speed and reliability of an exchanger. One of them is its principle of processing orders. It can be manual, automatic or semiautomatic. On BestChange you can find any of these varieties if they meet other rules to get listed in the monitor.

- Manual. Each order is manually checked by an operator, after which the employee sends the funds to the specified bank requisites. This process takes time – up to a day, depending on the business of operators.
- Semiautomatic. After the user pays for the order, the requested funds are transferred to the specified requisites. The speed of the remittance depends on the bank or blockchain network. In this case, the function of the operator is limited only to switching the order to the next level.
- Automatic. It works on the preliminarily set templates, due to which the exchange is being made practically in an instance and in several clicks. The role of operators is reduced to providing technical support to the users. It is the fastest option.

In the exchanger table, we list both automatic as well as semiautomatic exchangers. As a rule, the information about it is specified in a round mark next to the name of the exchanger in the list. If you notice a discrepancy, please tell us about it.

 What is a floating exchange rate?

Choosing an exchanger on BestChange, you can notice that some of them have a mark “This exchanger does not fix the exchange rate in the order”. Let’s figure out what this means for a user.

This mark can be set in two cases:

- If the trading pair is very volatile. Then the exchanger sets a short lifetime of the order or the maximum permissible deviation percentage in order to insure against sharp jumps in the rate. If the order goes beyond these limits, the rate will be recalculated up or down.
- If the deal can take a long time — for instance, if the order is with cash or when the cryptocurrency’s blockchain is highly busy. Then the exchanger recalculates the amount at the rate that takes place at the time of the completion of the transaction.

Some exchangers set a particular time limit (for example, 10 minutes), during which the rate will be fixed. If the order isn’t paid during this time, then the fixing is cancelled. Also, sometimes the rate is recalculated after a considerable change of the market rate of the currency. Say, for 5%.

A bona fide exchanger must indicate the relevant information when creating an order —the conditions for changing the rate, the number of network confirmations for cryptocurrencies, the conditions for forming the rate (for example, according to the indicators of a particular exchange), the maximum amount of recalculation of the total amount, and so on.

 How to choose a suitable exchanger?

In our monitor, we try to consider all indicators that can pay importance to the users. The rate is not always the most important thing. You also need to take into account minimal limits, reserves, requirements to the users, reputation and many other things.

What you need to pay attention to when choosing an exchanger on BestChange:
- Duration of work and the number of positive reviews. We pay special attention to the reviews on our website, in order to make sure that they were left by real users, and that the representatives of exchangers timely answer to the complaints.
- Total reserves. The higher this indicator is, the higher the chances that the exchanger is a serious one and will work smoothly,
- Rating in payment systems (WebMoney, Perfect Money etc.), as well as the rating of the website on MyWOT.
- Statistics — the most popular payment direction in the exchanger and dynamics of their demand.
- Additional peculiarities, the most important of which you can see in the list in the form of green circles next to the name of the exchanger. These include the way of processing the order (manual/semiautomatic), the form of commission (fixed/floating) and many more.

Choose attentively, and then your exchange will be profitable and comfortable.

 Is it possible to exchange cash?

Do you live in a city? Perhaps you would find it comfortable to buy or sell cryptocurrency for cash. This option has its advantages, for instance, maximum anonymity — it is harder to trace the transfer of cash than card transactions. Not all exchangers support this option, but still, there are plenty to choose from. Simply select payment direction on BestChange, indicating cash – rubles, euro, dollars – in the currency to give or to get.

How an exchange is being made:

-   Select the direction of exchange. Then on top of the list, indicate your city.
-   Select an exchanger, considering conditions – rate, reserves, verification requirements and other parameters. Click on it to go to its website.
-   Enter the amount of exchange and fill in other required fields.
-   Write to the exchanger’s online chat, tell the operator the ID of your order.
-   Agree on the date and time of visiting the office.

At the office, you will give the cash and will get cryptocurrency at your wallet (or vice versa). Fixing of the rate in this case usually happens at the moment of the actual exchange and not at the moment of creating an order.

Also, some exchangers offer an additional service — delivery of cash at the place of your convenience.

 What is card verification, and what is it for?

BestChange monitor tries to warn users about whether this or that exchanger requires bank card verification. This requirement is not frequent, but still, pay attention to it if this detail is important for you. It's easy to notice — a round green mark with a schematic card next to the exchanger's name.

Card verification is needed to confirm your card ownership and make life difficult for fraudsters who use other people's means of payment.

What details you will need to provide:

- Card number (or, as a minimum, first and last four digits).
- Card holder's name.
- Picture of the card with the exchanger's website or a paper with its URL on the background.

Is it safe? You can transfer the specified details completely calmly, they will not give potential fraudsters any benefit, even if the photo falls into their hands (for example, the exchanger is hacked). You must cover up the expiration date of the card and the CVC code on the photo, if it is indicated on the same side as the number as, for example, is on YooMoney. The reverse side of the card does not need to be shown at all.

The duration of verification depends on the workload of operators. It usually takes one day.

If you lose money through them, then you will not find the ends later.

There are several signs that will help determine whether you should trust the exchanger:

- High minimal exchange amount. The fly-by-night platforms strive to squeeze as much out of the website as possible until they are exposed, so they will not waste their time on trifles.
- Too attractive rates. A trustworthy exchanger will not work at a loss. The rate in exchanger is a market rate + commission. If you see an offer to exchange funds for a rate better than the market one, it’s very likely a lie.
- Untrustworthy praising reviews both on the very website, as well as on unmoderated platforms.
- On the contrary, a large number of negative reviews, especially with screenshots as proof.

✅ Some facts about currency exchange on the internet

🔑 There are advantages both in using a different exchanger each time and in staying loyal to one. In the first case you, with the help of the monitor, can choose the most profitable rates. And in the second case, you will receive perks from the very exchanger. Most of the services offer a cumulative discount program.
🔑 If you always want to exchange at a profitable rate, set up notifications about rates. BestChange offers such an option and can send notifications to Telegram or email.
🔑 All exchangers set a minimum transaction amount – the one so that the exchange is profitable. That’s because, for instance, exchanges with cryptocurrency presupposes network commission that depends on the blockchain load and exchanging small amounts, in this case, is unprofitable.
🔑 At the same time, there is no limit as to the maximal exchange amount – more precisely, it is equal to the reserves the exchanger has at the moment.
🔑 If you can’t find an exchanger with a rare direction (this is an exceptional case – there are services practically for all more or less known directions on BestChange), you can use the function “double exchange”.

Many services support working with cash – however, it is relevant for large cities. You can walk in directly to the office and make an exchange, or even order delivery to your place.

 What data exchangers transfer to BestChange

For the users to always get exact and complete information, our monitor requests a specific data pool from exchangers and regularly updates it. The frequency of updating is from 5 to 8 seconds; it gives maximally possible accuracy.

Parameters that we trace:
- Payment directions.
- Exchange rates for each direction (without payment system commissions, we consider them ourselves).
- Minimal and additional commissions. If the commission is a layered one, i.e. it depends on the amount; in this case, the monitor considers the maximal one out of possible.
- Minimal limits for exchanging for each of the directions.
- Reserves of all available currencies and cryptocurrencies.
- City where it’s possible to make an exchange (for directions with cash).

If during certain hours or days an exchanger does not work, the owners of it have an opportunity to switch the exchanger off from BestChange so that you won’t waste your time looking at irrelevant options. Thanks to all the above, the monitor is the best option to choose exchangers that are providing the best conditions at the very moment.

 Exchanger monitor — how does it help you in everyday life?

It does not matter if you exchange money every day or got in this situation for the first time, it's important to receive relevant and profitable offers. Rates in exchangers depend on different factors, due to which the difference between different services can reach 5-10% and higher. This is a tangible overpayment. Fortunately, it's easy to avoid it — that's what BestChange works for.

With our help you:
- Will easily find exchangers for a required payment direction, no matter how rare it is.
- Will be able to sort them by an indicator you are interested in, for example, by the best rate.
- In case you won't find the required directions among available ones at the moment, you will be able to make a "Double exchange" through a transit currency.
- Will choose an exchanger out of reliable services that have been checked by many indicators.

One of the main advantages of the monitor is a practically full automatization. You won't have to compare the rates manually — it is not only time-consuming but also ineffective because the prices constantly change, especially in the case of cryptocurrency.

 Types of fraud in online exchangers

Unfortunately, there are a lot of threat actors on the internet who dream of getting hold of others' money. First and foremost, of those inexperienced ones who have not yet learnt how to tell a legit service from a fraudulent one. How can you get scammed in an exchanger? There can be several scenarios.

- The most straightforward one – simply not send you the funds. Such websites receive payments to anonymous wallets and disappear from the radar. Naturally, in some time, there appears a lot of negative reviews about them, and the flow of clients runs dry, and then they simply create a new domain and continue their activity.
- Set too high rates. The market rates of currency, especially cryptocurrency, change every second. It is hard to track them, and this is what fraudulent exchangers use. They take significantly more than the stated commission, hoping for the user's inattentiveness or gullibility.
- Promise the moon. Some threat actors prefer using the people's wish to earn. They promise to earn on currency exchange, using an insignificant difference of rates in different payment systems, but as a result, the user is fooled.
- Catch with the help of phishing. It's enough to make a website that looks like a popular exchanger or an exchanger, the domain with a similar name, and because of inattentiveness, a person can enter there their data from real accounts.

How can you protect yourself? BestChange monitor guards the interests of users. For many years we have been gathering accurate information about legit exchangers, tracking rates for all payment directions. We urge users to use the monitor for each exchange to not miss out on the benefits.

Advantages of exchangers for buying and selling currency

You can buy and sell digital currency in several different ways — with the help of trading exchanges, peer-to-peer platforms, wallets, and payment systems. But, without a doubt, exchangers are the most popular method for quick and profitable transactions in any direction.

Why is it so?

- It is maximally easy. Especially if you use the BestChange monitor, which will track all rates and reserves, you will only have to select the best option out of offered ones.

- It is anonymous. Almost nowhere identity verification is required, sometimes there is card verification.

- It is quick. While on an exchange it can take a lot of time to transfer and withdraw funds, exchangers instantly transfer money from their own accounts.

- It allows to save up. There are profitable discount systems, as well as additional opportunities to earn through a referral program.

With the development of cryptocurrency, exchangers are even in higher demand — today, it’s cryptocurrency directions that are the most popular. BestChange statistic shows that most often, users exchange Bitcoin to Visa/MasterCard USD and vice versa.

What does it mean if an exchanger makes payments through third-party payment systems?

Have you seen icons with arrows in the list of exchangers on BestChange? It means that an exchanger accepts or sends payments through third-party systems. What does it mean for users?

- Firstly, commissions will be higher because payment systems set their own fees. All costs connected with sending/receiving funds by the user must be included in the rate.

- Secondly, the exchange may take longer due to third-party transactions.

- And thirdly, this factor affects the permissible volumes of the operation. Payment systems, as a rule, have strict limits on the size of received and transmitted transactions.

You can always choose exchangers without these peculiarities — BestChange has over 250 exchangers with the most different conditions. Choosing the one you need is easy as pie. Just pay attention to the round icons next to the names in the list of exchangers after you have selected a payment direction, and then there will be no surprises.

How long must the exchanger work to earn trust?

At BestChange, we add exchangers that have been working for not less than six months — this is one of the key requirements. Successful work during six months is an almost unreachable goal for various scams and fraudulent projects. Only truly high-quality services survive.

However, there is a couple of conditions under which we can add a younger exchanger. That’s why you shouldn’t be surprised when you see such exchangers on the site. Here are these conditions:

- If an exchanger has been launched by a famous and large project — for example, crypto exchange, p2p-platform, mining-pool.

- If an exchanger that has been in the monitor for already a year and has a positive reputation, vouches for the new service.

We treat the selection of projects for listing as responsibly as possible because our reputation also depends on that. Our specialists check every exchanger using a lot of parameters before it is included in the list. But even after that, we continue to watch over the quality of its work. To do that, reviews that users leave about this or that service, are of great help. All complaints must be settled, otherwise, sanctions may follow in relation to the exchanger.

The exchanger doesn’t transfer money — when is it time to worry?

Exchanging money, especially large amounts, the user quite rightly worries if they do not receive them within a few minutes. It’s understandable, but we would like to relieve you a little bit — not always a delay means you have faced a scammer.

For starters, please wait a little bit. If you are exchanging cryptocurrency, in particular, bitcoin, then the speed of the payment entirely depends on the blockchain load. In this case, the transfer can take up to an hour, but in the end, you will receive your money. Moreover, pay attention to the working hours of the exchanger. Not all operate around the clock, some have breaks and days off. Accordingly, you will have to wait until the start of the working day.

If quite some time has passed, but you still haven’t received the payment (and you are absolutely sure that you have specified the correct details), then write to the exchanger support. They will definitely help, and you will receive your hard-earned money. The majority of exchangers have a built-in chat which is very convenient, you don’t have to send an email. Please pay attention that operators also reply only during in-office hours.

⌛ And lastly: if you have chosen an exchanger through the BestChange monitor, there is no reason to worry — the problem will definitely be solved, we add only high-quality services to the listing. You can write a complaining review, and the exchanger representatives will respond to it. The claim will be lifted only after you receive your money.

Discounts at exchangers

Out of more than 250 exchangers listed in our monitor, lots offer a user a system of discounts. It is usually cumulative in nature — that is, by constantly exchanging in the same place, you can save a little. The initial discount level is usually provided immediately after registration, and subsequent levels depend on the volume of transactions.

The discount system has its advantages and disadvantages. The advantages are:

➕ A possibility to save, constantly exchanging with the help of one service.

➕ A clear and transparent concept — the more you exchange, the bigger the discount.

But there are also disadvantages:

➖ You need to always use the same service, even if it doesn’t offer the most lucrative conditions at the moment.

➖ Registration is obligatory.

The BestChange monitor, when showing the rates in exchangers, always indicates the maximal costs without possible discounts — this excluded the situation of you spending more than you expect. In the future, if you like some service, you can start using it and save up the discount.

🔎 What are crypto exchange codes and how to use them in exchangers
Some crypto exchanges have created a convenient tool for transferring assets among users. And by any means, including outside the exchange. These are special codes, which have a certain amount of cryptocurrency “packed” in them and which another user can activate to receive this cryptocurrency to their account. What is remarkable, without losses on commissions.
In our monitor BestChange there are lots of exchangers allowing buying and selling exchange codes of EXMO, Cryptex and other platforms. A few words about how to use them:
💸 Codes are created, depending on an exchange, either in one click in the respective section or in assets withdrawal, like on EXMO.
💸 They are activated similarly, either in a special section or during topping up the balance.
💸 The coders are a long set of letters and numerals. Exchanges usually make it possible to link the code to a specific user who can activate it, but this is not used in exchangers.
💸 After activation, the cryptocurrency instantaneously is credited to the balance of the exchange.
This is a great option to buy cryptocurrency in the ways the exchange does not support because in exchangers the choice of available directions is times higher. And BestChange will always help choose a safe service for a profitable deal.

What does exchange speed depend on?

We all want transactions to be completed in a matter of seconds, but as a rule, this is technically impossible. We have to wait. At this moment, we start worrying about our money, even if the exchanger is a trusted one. We start checking if we have entered the details correctly, then writing to the tech support. It is understandable, however, most often, it is impossible to speed up the process.

Here are just a few factors that influence the speed of exchange:

- The working mechanism — manual or automatic. Most of the exchangers are now automatized, but there are exclusions. In manual mode, operations are processed on a queue basis.

- In the case of cryptocurrency — the load of the blockchain. It can take up to 20–40 minutes to confirm a bitcoin transaction, and during the periods of a sharp price change, it can take even longer (because there are more transactions in the network).

- Delays in payment systems, banks. This in no way depends on the exchanger. Banks, for example, regulate the possible transfer time of up to 3 days. In practice, of course, it happens faster.

Of course, there can be mistakes and delays on the part of the very exchanger, this option cannot be excluded. In this situation, the first thing to do is contact technical support. You can also leave a complaint on the exchanger page in our monitor BestChange. The exchanger representatives must settle the conflict, writing a reply to the user on BestChange, to preserve reputation.

Please pay attention that in the selection table on BestChange, there are main characteristics of exchangers specified — such as manual mode or transfer through third-party payment systems. If speed is important to you, we recommend choosing automatic services.

How to maximize profit when working with exchangers

BestChange provides accurate and organized information about several hundred exchangers. By default, exchangers in the direction you have chosen are sorted based on how profitable their exchange rate is. In general, quite a few different factors affect the benefit of the exchange, for example:

- Commissions set on a specific service. Usually, they are included in the rate and not indicated separately.
- An exchange from which the exchanger takes its base rates. On different platforms, the indicators can differ at the same moment (which makes it possible to earn on arbitration).
- Payment direction. Sometimes for rare directions, the rate can be not the most profitable. Try using the “double exchange”.
- Discounts. Lots of services provide a discount system to loyal customers. Even by simply registering, you can get a minimal discount.
- Promotions and bonuses. We do not gather this information about exchangers, however, visiting their websites, you can learn about it yourself. Sometimes they offer promotions on holidays or contests with money prizes.

How to receive stablecoins in an exchanger

Cryptocurrency has lots of advantages: it’s decentralized, independent, anonymous. The main reason it hasn’t conquered the world yet is its volatility. Having one bitcoin, you don’t know how much it will be worth in one month — 30 or 50 thousand dollars.

An excellent alternative for those who want to get the advantages of crypto but isn’t ready to risk is stablecoins. Dollar stablecoins are most widely spread. The point is that such a coin always costs 1 dollar, whatever happens in the troublesome crypto market.

With the help of BestChange you can easily find exchangers where you can buy or sell:

- Tether (USDT)

- USD Coin (USDC)

- Pax Dollar (USDP), earlier known as Paxos Standard (PAX)

- Binance USD (BUSD)

- True USD (TUSD)

- Dai (DAI)

Prepare a cryptocurrency wallet that supports the required coins in advance. And the rest is as easy as pie — specify the direction of payment, select the ideal exchanger with the help of the monitor, create and pay for the order.

We have been helping people exchange with profit and avoid financial fraud for already 14 years. Using the monitor is absolutely free and very useful, you can find it out yourself.

Signs of a safe exchanger

The first and most important sign that you can use an exchanger is it being listed in the monitor BestChange, isn’t it? We recommend using our service for every exchange for your own safety.

What else do you need to pay attention to when transferring your money to an exchanger:

● Secure connection (HTTPS stands at the address bar’s beginning). This provides safety to the information entered by the user.
● Confirmed accounts if payment systems such as WebMoney. Usually, these are specified at the bottom of the website.
● Properly filed documents: user agreement, confidentiality policy.
● Support chat, working, with human operators.
● Reviews on independent platforms.

This is the minimum that every user needs to check when they come across a new service. However, BestChange specialists conduct a much more thorough check when adding a new service to the listing. Moreover, we consider only those websites that have been working for not less than six months. Therefore, the probability of falling into the clutches of scammers is reduced to almost zero.

How does the monitor help you save up?

If you exchange cryptocurrency and fiat frequently, then you must have chosen the one trusted for you. It makes sense, especially from the viewpoint of convenience. However, this approach does not always give the best results possible.

And if you don’t have a favourite exchanger yet, it is even more important to make the right choice. What do you need for that, first and foremost? Exactly, relevant information.

With time, any information becomes old, but with cryptocurrencies, this happens in an instance. The prices in exchangers in exchangers are made up of the current market exchange rate and the margin of the service itself. Cryptocurrencies are highly volatile, that’s why we can see such fluctuations of rates in exchangers.

!Using the monitor, you will always find the most profitable option to buy or sell, and as a result, you will significantly save up!

BestChange monitors and updates rates for all exchange pairs every second (there are more than 200 of them) and for all exchangers (currently there are around 250 of them). This guarantees that at any moment of time you can visit the website of the monitor and see the most profitable options for the currency that interests you.

We guarantee that all exchangers that you see in the list are working ones. We have strict requirements and after the listing, we carry on checking the services for compliance. We also recommend that you read reviews.

Things you need to check before exchanging your money

You’ll agree that you can only trust your money to such services that deserve this trust. We would like to elaborate on the criteria for choosing an exchanger and what role the monitor plays in it.

BestChange checks thoroughly every exchanger before adding it to the website and continues to watch its reliability and reputation. That’s why the risks for the user are minimal. To ensure their relations with the large monitor are smooth, exchangers try to solve the problems described in reviews timely.

Several lifehacks how to choose exchangers through BestChange:

If you see negative feedback, you can check whether the exchanger has reacted and if the situation is solved.

* Pay attention to the exchanger’s work duration. Usually, we do not include in the monitor services that have been working less than six months, but the longer the service has been working, the better.

* Pay attention to the available reserves — a large amount of money for all directions guarantees that the funds will be enough for everything.

The quality sign of an exchanger is it having passed through an additional check and is in possession of official registration. Please study this information, together with user reviews, the working state of the website, and the current rating on the monitor.

If you are choosing an exchanger yourself, without our help, we recommend you study at least three factors. Firstly, check if the service is listed on blacklists and read the reviews on them on independent platforms. Secondly, check the registration of the domain name on If the domain is only several days old, you should give the exchanger a wide berth no matter how attractive its rates are. Thirdly, the domain should not be placed on free hosting.

Be attentive, and have a great exchange!

Risks when dealing with no-name crypto exchangers

There are about 250 exchangers in BestChange listing, and each of them is checked by dozens of parameters. But there are also hundreds of exchangers that cannot in any way prove that they are legit. Why shouldn’t you use their services? Let’s discuss the chief risks.

❗ Firstly, the exchanger may simply not pay you. This is the most evident fraud, which is, unfortunately, widely spread. When the website’s reputation is completely damaged, the threat actors will simply create a new domain and continue their activity.

❗ Secondly, there can be hidden commissions. When creating an order, you see one amount, but in the end, you receive a totally different amount. You won’t be able to prove anything since the regulation of crypto exchangers is still feeble. And if it is written somewhere in tiny print about commissions, there are no chances to win back your hard-earned money.

❗ Thirdly, technical mistakes. If the exchanger is new, and even if its creator did not aim to deceive anyone, there are chances of losing funds just due to ill-conceived technical issues. That said, all exchangers represented on BestChange have been working for at least six months, that’s why such a situation is almost surely ruled out.

❗ Fourthly, there is such a type of fraud as phishing. A domain is created with a name that looks like a name of a popular exchanger. The design is also made similar. You can avoid such risk if you visit an exchanger from BestChange website and not via other links.

Do not risk, use the monitor, it is absolutely free and very convenient.

Factors influencing on exchange rate in exchangers

Saving up and convenience are the two key advantages the BestChange monitor offers to its users. In order you could save up the most funds, we adhere to the principle of transparency.

Having chosen a required payment direction, you will see a list of exchangers that support it, sorted by rate. The rates are updated every five seconds thus they are always relevant. At the same time, you can notice that when updating the page, exchangers change their place, some become more profitable, others less.

The rate in an exchanger depends on several factors:

- Relevant exchange rate for the trading pare. Exchangers take it from crypto exchanges, such as Binance or Poloniex.

- Exchanger’s commission. As a rule, it is not indicated directly but is included in the rate. That’s why it’s more profitable to choose exchangers via the monitor.

- Exchange amount. Some exchangers charge additional fees when exchanging certain amounts, for instance, up to 100 USD. In this case, the largest possible rate is displayed on the monitor. The service must inform about these nuances at the stage of creating an order, this is one of our requirements to exchangers.

When selecting an exchanger, please pay attention to the marks next to the name of the exchanger (see the image), there can be important information. For example, if the rate is fixed at the moment of creating an order — this is crucial, because during the processing of an order the value of the currency can significantly drop od surge and you will receive not what you expected.

We aim to provide all the information that can be important to you. Choose attentively, and then losses when exchanging currencies will be minimal.

BestChange guards your anonymity

 Anonymity is one of the most essential and valuable things on the internet. It suggests that nobody will learn information about you that you don’t want to provide. This especially concerns finances. The majority of exchangers are anonymous and do not require a customer to specify personal information. In rare cases, you need to verify the bank card.

The BestChange monitor too provides the maximal confidentiality:

- Registration is not required. After visiting the website, you can straight away select an exchanger.

- Verification is not required either. We don’t provide financial, custodial or payment services, which means we do not keep user funds and do not make transactions. That’s why the regular KYC/AML checks do not apply to us.

- We track exchangers that require card and any other data verification of the client and show corresponding marks next to their names.

- We do not keep personal data about clients and do not transfer it to anybody. This personal data includes, for example, an email that you indicate when contacting technical support, or an analysis of user behavior when entering a captcha.

If anonymity on the internet and when performing financial operations is important to you, please pay attention to the conditions of every specific exchanger. We, in our turn, also try to maximally fast implement any conditions they have in their policy.

Tips and tricks for BestChange monitor

 Today we will tell you about several useful functions of BestChange you probably didn’t know. Meanwhile, these instruments will help you make using the website even more convenient and lucrative.

- Double exchange.

Select a payment direction and then click “Double exchange” over the list of available options. This is a good way to find exchange options if there are currently no exchangers for the direction you need. Moreover, using an in-between exchange, often you can receive a more profitable result.

For example, instead of changing Bitcoin directly to Visa/MasterCard USD, you can exchange it to USDT, and then exchange USDT to Visa/MasterCard USD. Definitely check this option if you need to reduce the losses.

- Notifications by email and Telegram.

After selecting a payment direction, choose the tab “Notifications”. You will be able to set the desired exchange rate, available reserves, as well as the term of order annulment (up to three months). And we will send you a notification to email or Telegram as soon as an offer with suitable conditions appears. You don’t need to manually monitor the rates — you can rely on automated decisions.

- Currency converter.

Click the link “Converter” at the bottom of the page. Here you can check the rates of currency and cryptocurrency in relation to each other. It’s very convenient if you don’t want to exchange, but simply want to know an exchanger exchange rate. We take information from the main cryptocurrency trading platforms.

How do we choose which exchangers to add to the listing?

We receive quite a lot of requests for adding exchangers to the monitor BestChange. We, in turn, put forward strict requirements that the service must meet. Users’ safety is a priority.

Here are just a few key parameters that BestChange pays attention to when making a decision.

✅ Long term of a successful work — six months minimum. There can be exclusions, for instance, if the exchanger was launched by a famous exchange or another service.

✅ The functionality of the website must include an order form available without registration, an affiliate program, and a full-fledged English version.

Exchanger reserves: why is it important?

Reserves are a total quantity of means on the account of a service, which allows to freely perform exchange in different directions. On BestChange, all exchangers have reserves not less than $10, 000. However, famous and popular exchangers have much more significant reserves.

Currently, the monitor works with 230+ exchangers, the total reserves of which constitute $11 billion (the relevant number can be seen in the section “Exchangers” -> “Statistics”).

❓ Why is it important to pay attention to the reserves of an exchanger?

It is simple — an exchanger won’t be able to pay for an order, the amount of which is higher than the reserves it has for a specific payment direction. For example, if the reserves are just 10,000 Advanced Cash, you won’t be able to sell 15,000 Advanced Cash to the exchanger. That’s why you should always pay attention to this indicator when choosing a service with the help of the monitor — it is shown in the table where suitable services are specified. Usually, the exchangers in the BestChange listing do not have problems with reserves.

We are trying to keep information relevant and require the exchangers to timely update information about their reserves.

Marks of exchangers in the list — what can you learn from them?

BestChange has developed a system of icons characterizing the peculiarities of an exchanger. We recommend you make a habit of paying attention to them, then you will be able to understand in a second which exchanger won’t suit you. It saves time — otherwise, you had to visit the website, create an order for an exchange, and, perhaps, only then learn that you need to verify your card or some other nuances.

Here are some exchanger characteristics that we mark with icon:

- Manual or semiautomatic mode is used.
- Additional commissions are charged.
- Registration, card or documents verification is needed.
- The service has a built-in online wallet.
- Transfers are made from a legal entity or a third-party payment system.
- There are holds when paying.

And many more. For example, if you exchange cash, we will inform you that the exchanger delivers it at a fee. We will also inform you about a floating rate and other important things. Don’t forget to pay attention to the marks — all you need to do is to hover your mouse over them to learn the details.

❓ What is a rating of an exchanger in the payment system?

Going to the page of any exchanger on BestChange (to do this, you need to click on the number of reviews after choosing a payment direction), you will see such indicators as Advanced Cash TS, WebMoney BL, Perfect Money TS. What do they mean, and why sometimes there are numbers, and sometimes a dash?

The thing is that some payment systems ascribe levels to the users. This helps other users understand if they can trust this service. For example:

✅ Advanced Cash Transaction Score

✅ WebMoney Business Level

✅ Perfect Money Trust Score

If instead of rating there is a dash, it means the exchanger doesn’t work with this payment system, correspondingly, does not have a rating in it or it’s not important. Please pay attention to the listed indicators, if you are planning to work with one of these payment systems via the exchanger.

In addition, on the page of the exchanger, you can see the “MyWOT Rating” parameter. Web Of Trust is an add-on for assessing the security of a site and based on the results of its check, you can determine whether the site is trustworthy. Mostly, in the check, the opinion of users is considered.

We repeat once and again that our website is always on the side of the user. We monitor all the reviews and make the management of the exchanger accountable if the client hasn’t received their money on time. Usually, as a result, all situations get successfully resolved. But what should you do if your review hasn’t been published? Do not worry, please check if your review meets several simple rules:

📃 For a review to appear on the website, you need to confirm it by email. This is done to fight spam. An unpublished review is stored for a week and then gets deleted, that is why you need to remember this nuance.

📃 There is a difference between a “comment” and a “claim”. Please go for the first option if you have received money, but simply want to comment on the work of the service. The second option is strictly for those cases when the money hasn’t been received. After the problem is solved and the amount is transferred, you need to lift the claim (it won’t get deleted, which means that other users will still be able to see it).

📃 Naturally, profanities and insults, calls to ethnic or any other animosity are forbidden.

📃 The text of the review must not copy another one, already displayed on the website.

📃 Reviews of an advertising nature are not published.

Write the truth in a calm and detailed manner, this will help other users!

How to make use of reviews when selecting an exchanger on

When you decide to use an exchanger for the frst time, we strongly advice reading its reviews. When you read them, you can notice, that they can be of three types:

 Positive reviews are highlighted in green. These, as a rule, are left by those users who were happy with the exchanger services.

 Neutral reviews are left by those users who successfully received money after the exchange, but they have comments on the work of the service itself.

 Negative reviews happen if the user hasn’t received their funds after the exchange, but in his case representatives of the exchanger must timely solve the issue.

However, difficulties when transferring the means can happen not only through the fault of the exchanger, but due to technical problems of the bank or the blockchain itself. Any of your feedback on the work of the exchanger will help other users make a choice! We know where to exchange!

It sometimes happens that the money after an exchange come with a delay. Rest assured that your means will not be lost if you have chosen an exchanger from the list on

 Every website goes through a diligence check by dozens of parameters before becoming a part of the listing.

What should you do in case of a delay?
- Don’t worry. An exchanger is like any other institution where suddenly any technical problems may occur.

Do exchangers require KYC?

KYC (Know Your Customer) check is a widespread requirement of regulators which are trying to fight money laundering with the help of cryptocurrency. For sure, you have noticed that during the last 2–3 years this check has been introduced in more and more crypto services, including exchanges and wallets. And what about exchangers?

The majority of them do not yet require passing KYC. The BestChange monitor is trying to trace the services with an exception and mark them with a special icon. However, an exchanger can sometimes change their terms of service, so when creating an order for this or that payment direction you can be asked to verify your identity. If you don’t want to do that, simply select another exchanger for the same direction.

 We would like to remind you that it is important to read the terms of service of exchangers you use. This will help you avoid any surprises.

At the same time, we need to note that the verification in no way is a way of stealing the client’s data and using it illegally. This is just a necessity caused by the requirement of regulators, and a reliable exchanger will not give the information about the user to a third party.

Why can you come across exchangers in our listing that have been working less than six months?

Let’s look at this situation in details. Many of you know that we have a number of rules which exchangers must meet when they are added to the monitor’s listing —

However, some exchangers fall under the exception:

- exchangers for which vouches an acting reliable partner of BestChange. It is important that it has positive reputation in our rating;
- exchangers that come from an an owner of a large internet-project, for instance, crypto exchange, p2p platform or a mining company.

That is why if you see a “young” exchanger in our listing, be sure that it has gone through a thorough diligence check. All potentials risks from their listing are smoothed by vouching for them by services with many years of excellent reputation. cares for its users!

Additional features of BestChange

Today we are going to tell you about several useful features of the monitor that will help you in your work. You can use them after you have selected an exchange direction. Please pay attention to the buttons on top of the exchanger table:

- Inverse exchange. That is an instant change of exchange direction to the inverse one (for instance, you selected an Ethereum to Bitcoin direction, and clicking this button you will get a Bitcoin to Ethereum direction).

- Save. This button adds a direction on the top of the list that can be found in the tab “Popular” on the left. It is especially relevant if the direction is rare — you won’t need to waste time to find it each time.

- Discrepancy. A form to contact us will open and you can use it if you have found discrepancies between rates/reserves specified in the monitor and factual ones. Also, you can indicate here other discrepancies, for example, with manual/automatic exchange. Please write to us, it helps us become better.

- History. All your last visits of the exchanger websites. Rates and reserves that took place at the time of transition are indicated.

Finally, the “Settings” button will help you configure the appearance of the table to your liking: you can adjust the refresh rate, select the font, decimal separators, etc. Use the settings to make the site comfortable for you.
