​​Bitcoin options market is growing, despite the depreciation below $ 9000

To date, 114,700 option contracts, whose face value is already above $ 1 billion, will expire tomorrow on the main derivatives exchanges - Deribit, CME, Bakkt, OKEx, LedgerX.

Bitcoin derivatives continue to be in high demand, despite the uncertainty prevailing in the spot market in the last couple of months. BTC options are approaching a record expiration of $ 1 billion this Friday, June 26th.

To date, 114,700 option contracts, the nominal value of which already exceeds $ 1 billion, will expire tomorrow on the main derivatives exchanges - Deribit, CME, Bakkt, OKEx, LedgerX.

Options are derivative contracts that give buyers the right, but not the obligation to buy or sell an underlying asset at a predetermined price before a certain date.

A call option gives you the right to buy, and a put option gives you the right to sell. Using options, traders can make bull or bear bets on contracts at different exchange rates (strikes), which expire in different months.

The expiration of an option may affect the direction of the market amid a process known as “fixing,” in which option traders try to move the spot price to avoid sudden losses.

Owners who benefit from higher prices for the underlying asset — sellers and call buyers — often take long positions in the spot market to raise prices before the expiration date. On the other hand, put buyers and call sellers who benefit from a fall in the underlying asset open short positions in the spot market to keep prices under pressure until they expire.

Such a "tug of war" often leads to the fact that prices are fixed at the level of strike, where a large number of open positions are concentrated. open interest capture 2

At the moment, open interest is concentrated at $ 10,000 and $ 11,000. Meanwhile, a noticeable increase in open interest is observed from the lower level of $ 9,000.

As a result, the mark of $ 10,000 may act as a powerful resistance, heading towards the end of the term. If prices begin to rise, call sellers may take short positions in spot markets so that the cryptocurrency cannot move to an area above $ 10,000.

At the time of writing, Bitcoin is trading at $ 9,200, which is 4% less than a day ago. At night, the leading cryptocurrency exchange rate fell below $ 9,000.

Bitcoin has been trading in the range of $ 9,000 to $ 10,000 since halving itself on May 11th.

Chainalysis will track "anonymous coins" Zcash and Dash

Chainalysis, a blockchain analysis company, will track “anonymous coins” Zcash (ZEC) and Dash (DASH). The company announced this on its blog on June 8.

Chainalysis notes that it can track the vast majority of transactions in these cryptocurrencies, since most users do not use the privacy features in Zcash, and Dash cannot be called an anonymous coin at all:

PrivateSend in Dash splits funds into standard denominations: 10, 1, 0.1, 0.01, or 0.001 DASH. These funds are then sent to the mix transaction, where all inputs and outputs have the same denomination. The user receives the same amount of Dash back, which is mixed with the money of other users in PrivateSend.

Similar PrivateSend transactions are possible in other cryptocurrencies. This means that from a technical point of view, the level of confidentiality of Dash is not higher than that of bitcoin, therefore it is incorrect to present Dash as an “anonymous coin”. In fact, individual wallets support more advanced forms of CoinJoin and are used in cryptocurrencies that are not positioned as “anonymous coins” - Bitcoin, Lightcoin and Bitcoin Cash.

Dash Core Group CEO Ryan Taylor said: “Dash offers users highly sensitive transactions because privacy is important for mass adoption of cryptocurrencies, and it is the end users who value this functionality. At the same time, Chainalysis is a leading blockchain analysis company, the services of which are used by financial organizations that need to strike a balance between ensuring the confidentiality of user data and regulatory requirements. This contributes to the safe use of cryptocurrencies and provides access to traditional financial markets, so I'm glad that Chainalysis decided to add Dash to its platform. ”

Zcash cryptocurrency should theoretically provide a high level of user privacy, but, according to Chainalysis, only 0.9% of cryptocurrency transactions are completely anonymous: “Thus, even though obfuscation in Zcash is stronger due to zk-SNARK encryption, Chainalysis can "still provide the transaction amount and at least one address in more than 99% of ZEC transfers."

On Twitter, Electric Coin Company, a developer at Zcash, commented on Chainalysis's statement:

“Zcash allows users to select addresses in Bitcoin (“ transparent ”) or privacy-protecting (“ secure ”) addresses. Transparent addresses work like bitcoin transactions, which are also tracked by Chainalysis. Users of Zcash secure addresses get more reliable data protection compared to any other cryptocurrency that exists today. Chainalysis cannot track addresses unless the user allows Chainalysis to view transaction data using its own view key (“selective disclosure”).

At the same time, transparent Zcash addresses allow listing Zcash on exchanges. Some of the world's most regulated exchanges, such as Gemini and Coinbase, support Zcash, fully complying with all of their regulatory and banking requirements. This regulatory compliance opportunity is one of the reasons why Zcash has become one of the most widely supported cryptocurrencies in the world. Chainalysis’s Zcash support announcement further underscores this fact. ”

Chinese police discover underground mining farms underdog enclosures

Chinese police have discovered a disguised "underground" mining farm.

Beijing News, a Chinese news publication, reported on May 31 that law enforcement authorities discovered an underground mining farm in Daqing City District (Heilongjiang Province).

Police decided to search the area after a local oil company reported an inexplicably high electricity consumption. On the territory, next to two earthen embankments (which, according to Beijing News, the police first mistook for a burial mound), a masked underground passage was found that led to a shelter with mining equipment installed.

Local media also reported that earlier in the week in Heilongjiang, police discovered another underground mining farm, which was hidden underdog enclosures.

Former Coinbase Senior Lawyer Becomes Head of US Banking Regulation

Coinbase, a former leading lawyer for the cryptocurrency exchange, is preparing to take up the position of the US money controller in charge of banking regulation, at least temporarily. This is written by Politico Pro.

Currently, Brian Brooks is the first deputy head of the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, Joseph Otting, who plans to leave this post. Otting has contributed to reforming policies aimed at preventing financial discrimination against low-income people and minorities. He intends to announce his resignation after the measures proposed by him take effect this week.

A permanent controller will be appointed by President Donald Trump and must be approved by the Senate. Otting is expected to remain in his current position for several more months.

Brooks became his deputy two months ago. Recently, he came up with a proposal to bring crypto companies under federal banking regulation, along with which they will no longer need to undergo licensing at the state level.

In the past, Brooks worked as the head of the legal department of the Coinbase exchange, was a consultant to the largest American mortgage agency Fannie Mae and chairman of OneWest bank, founded by current finance minister Stephen Mnuchin.

China Telecom introduces blockchain in 5G systems

China Telecom, a leading Chinese telecommunications company, is integrating the blockchain into 5G systems to increase revenue sharing, billing, and payments.

In an interview with Securities Daily, the director of the blockchain and digital economy laboratory of China Telecom Group, Liang Wei, said that 5G technology has already played a role in changing the digital economy of China, and the blockchain is being integrated into these systems due to its many technical capabilities. Wei noted that the integration of DLT in 5G systems will contribute to the secure allocation of resources and effective collaboration between connected devices. He said:

“Blockchain will help achieve a more efficient and secure allocation of 5G resources and track their use. Decentralized protocol exchange and payments can be made automatically using smart contracts. ”

Wei believes that the integration of the 5G blockchain will increase the quality of international roaming services, since the information of users of each mobile network operator can be transferred safely and unhindered on the blockchain without the participation of intermediaries, which makes automatic billing and payments possible.

The director of the laboratory notes that smart contracts on the blockchain will also make network segmentation more efficient and effective, as they will process the requests of each user. Network segmentation involves dividing the network architecture into segments to support a wide range of use cases.

“The combination of 5G technology and blockchain is the trend of the future. DLT and 5G enhance performance and complement each other. Such 5G-based implementations can provide unlimited possibilities for creating IoT applications, ”Wei added.

Telecommunication companies are increasingly taking advantage of the blockchain. In February, members of the CBSG consortium made their first transactions based on the Business Verification (PoB) approach on the CCPS blockchain payment platform. The transaction took place between telecom operators from Taiwan and the United States. In the same month, four major telecommunications operators announced a test use of a blockchain-based solution for managing roaming discount agreements.

In addition, in December, KT Corporation, South Korea’s largest telecommunications provider, announced a partnership with China Mobile to simplify blockchain 5G roaming services.

Over the past day, the crypto market capitalization has grown by more than $ 30 billion

Together with Bitcoin, over the past 24 hours, all the major cryptocurrencies have appreciably gained in value.

According to the latest data, the cryptocurrency market capitalization now exceeds $ 255.653 billion. Last Thursday, April 29, the value of digital currencies amounted to just over $ 225.075 billion.

Note that this morning capitalization reached 263.077 billion. Once again, the sharp rise in the price of bitcoin became the driver of market growth.

The first cryptocurrency today is above $ 9,000, with many traders predicting that before halving (reducing the reward of miners) the coin will reach $ 10,000. The best results from the top ten altcoins were shown by ether (ETH) and Tezos (XTZ), which soared to $ 220 and $ 2.95 respectively.

Despite the strengthening of altcoins, the Bitcoin dominance index has significantly increased over the past day. Currently, this indicator is approaching 66%.

As the halving approaches, the share of BTC in the market will increase. At least, data from cryptocurrency exchanges signal this.

The volume of bitcoin transactions again began to grow after the March collapse. The growth of traders' activity was recorded by many large platforms, including Coinbase and Binance.

TON blockchain network launch postponed indefinitely

The team of Pavel Durov decided to postpone the launch of the Telegram Open Network blockchain platform indefinitely. This was reported by the newspaper "Vedomosti", citing two sources close to the leadership of Telegram.

In addition, the developers of the Gram token offered investors to return up to 72% of the funds they invested in creating the TON network.

A letter was sent to investors, in which the company stated that it could not give them Gram coins in connection with a lawsuit in the United States. Telegram expects to allocate funds for the payment of debts from its own capital.

The company promises to fully settle with investors if, until the end of April of next year, the launch of the Gram token still does not take place.

Earlier, The Bell reported that Pavel Durov was considering options for distributing digital currency among investors outside the US jurisdiction.

Although experts interviewed by reporters believe that the company is unlikely to take such a step. Yes, and token buyers themselves are likely to refuse to receive Gram bypassing the court decision.

In the expert environment, there is such an opinion that Telegram is able to continue work on the launch of the token even if it returns to investors about 70% of their funds.

Recall that the total investment in the TON project amounted to $ 1.7 billion. Durov raised the capital in 2018, but last fall, at the request of the SEC, the court ruled that the placement of cryptocurrency was illegal.

Binance has warned about the vulnerability of the email client devices based on iOS

This morning, the Binance cryptocurrency exchange published a notification for its users, in which it warned about the vulnerability of devices based on the iOS operating system arising from the default email client.

As ZecOps reported a few days earlier, the vulnerability allows remote code execution. For infection, a message is sent to the device, which absorbs significant amounts of its memory.

Researchers note that the vulnerability was used for real attacks on users and can be activated even before the message is completely downloaded, therefore its contents do not always remain on the device. In particular, there are known cases of exploitation of vulnerabilities on devices running iOS 11, 12, and 13. Moreover, the latest versions of iOS 13 allow downloading mail in the background, which makes them even more vulnerable than, for example, iOS 12, where the user must go into the application to launch the exploit. The vulnerability is present in Apple devices with at least iOS 6, that is, since September 2012, when the iPhone 5 came out.

According to media reports, the vulnerability was fixed in the beta version of iOS 13.4.5, a full release of which should take place in the near future. In the meantime, users are advised to set the data download to "Manual" and disable the "Push" option on the "Passwords and Accounts" tab in the settings menu, as well as install an alternative email client.

“This is a serious security issue affecting all iPhone users. Please take action and protect yourself, writes Changpen Zhao, CEO of Binance. - Here is another reason to use unique addresses for each exchange and never disclose them. Less opportunity to attack. ”

​​Stablecoin capitalization exceeded $ 9 billion

Over the past few weeks, stablecoins provided with fiat reserves have significantly strengthened their position in the crypto market. The impact of such assets is growing rapidly, according to a study by CoinMetrics.

On April 20, the total capitalization of stablecoins exceeded $ 9 billion, while only six weeks ago the total value of such coins was only $ 6 billion.

It is traditionally believed that increasing investment in stablecoins is a good sign for the largest cryptocurrencies. Money goes to the crypto sphere, and ultimately it will be invested in bitcoin or ether.

However, there are opponents of this point of view. On the contrary, they believe that no purchases of BTC or ETH are expected in the near future, as investors are confused. Most likely, we are now observing the reverse dynamics, in which capital leaves Bitcoin in assets secured by fiat money. In this way, players try to protect their funds.

The lion's share of stablecoin capitalization is accounted for by Tether (USDT). At the end of last week, developers “printed” USDT coins for another $ 120 million, and now the capitalization of this asset exceeds $ 6.396 billion.

According to the CEO of FTX, Sam Bankman-Fried, Tether's capitalization is growing due to Asian and primarily Chinese investors. They use this coin not only to purchase cryptocurrency but also to move funds around the world, bypassing the current restrictions in their country.

The head of the research company Messari Ryan Selkis emphasized that at the moment about $ 3 billion in stablecoins is placed on exchanges. This suggests that investors in the future are ready to move to the accumulation of bitcoins. However, it is still difficult to predict the timing of the return of capital in BTC.

The court took Craig Wright 3 days to provide documents on the Bitcoin Satoshi Nakamoto

The American court ordered the self-proclaimed creator of bitcoin Craig Wright to provide the documents requested from him by April 17. This decision was made after the judge rejected Wright's arguments about the inadmissibility of the disclosure of this information, as it was allegedly protected by lawyer secrets.

The decision was made as part of an ongoing Wright trial with the family of his former business partner Dave Kleiman. The plaintiffs claim half the fortune of more than a million bitcoins, which should be at Wright's disposal if he got them in the early years of the cryptocurrency, hiding under the pseudonym Satoshi Nakamoto.

Wright claimed that he could not transmit documents since they were protected by the principle of maintaining the confidentiality of information entrusted by the client to his lawyer. The judge, however, considered the evidence provided by him to protect his interests unconvincing by a Kenyan lawyer and stated that they could be created by anyone who “has access to a text editor and pen.”

On Monday, the new court finally dismissed Wright's objection to the earlier decision. In response to the judge's initial claims, Wright called them unfounded, as he did not receive a refutation of his words. He also claimed that the falsification of documents in the past should not affect the decision in this episode.

Florida Southern District Judge Beth Bloom stated that Judge Bruce Reinhart’s earlier decision was not “against the law or manifestly erroneous,” as Wright said. The same applies to the order for the provision of documents.

Judge Reinhart, according to Bloom, correctly decided that the information required by the defendant was not protected by lawyer secrets. She also stated that the court was “perplexed” because of Wright’s position, which suggested that Judge Reinhart “should not accept all the defendant’s materials without looking”.

Earlier it became known that Wright refused to prosecute Blockstream CEO Adam Beck and agreed to cover all of his legal expenses.

Ex-CTO Ripple Jed McCaleb receives another 64 million XRP from the company

Ripple co-founder and former technical director, Jed McCaleb, has almost 64 million XRPs at his disposal. This is evidenced by the Whale Alert.

According to the service, on Wednesday night 63,704,590 XRPs worth about $ 12 million were transferred from McCaleb's account to his personal wallet.

As noted by Whale Alert, this transfer was made as part of an agreement between Ripple and McCaleb. Such periodic payments are most often immediately available on exchanges, where they are supposedly liquidated for fiat currency. Analysts previously estimated that in this way McCaleb had already sold more than 1 billion XRP, but most of the assets owed to him are still waiting in the wings.

McCaleb himself, commenting on the observations of analysts, said: “I was transparent from the very beginning. The market has known for several years that I sell my XRP slowly and continuously. My investment decisions are not based on the desire to negatively affect other companies in the industry. I think history to this day demonstrates that the market has not been subjected to any influence, and I see no reason to change the current situation. ”

McCaleb was at the forefront of the existing XRP system but decided to leave the project and engage in the development of Stellar, concluding an agreement with Ripple, according to which he regularly receives payments from the company.

After the collapse to $ 0.12 in mid-March, XRP is gradually recovering along with the wider cryptocurrency market and today it is trading around $ 0.20.

Binance exchange opens a mining pool for bitcoin mining

Binance cryptocurrency exchange opens its mining pool, the computing power of which will be used to mine bitcoin. Binance CEO Changpen Zhao confirmed this on Twitter.

“Yes, Binance will launch its mining pool soon,” he wrote. “The image from the first #BinanceMiningPool live broadcast is now being distributed to members of the Chinese community.”

Zhao refrained from disclosing more detailed information.

According to CoinDesk, Binance already offers “generous” referral bonuses to potential customers among miners in China who are invited to engage in promoting its new service.

Currently, exchanges such as OKex and Huobi have their mining pools. According to Blockchain.com, they are in the top 10 largest Bitcoin mining pools.

Alejandro de la Torre, vice president of the second-largest mining pool of Bitcoin, Pooling, is sure that exchanges come into this business for liquidity since mining is the cheapest way to add liquidity to a trading platform.

Earlier it became known that Binance may acquire the crypto-tracking portal CoinMarketCap for $ 400 million.

​​Brad Garlinghouse fraudulently promotes fake XRP on YouTube

Despite YouTube’s repeated aggressive actions against cryptocurrency-related content, the most popular video hosting service in the world seems to have problems detecting large fraudulent accounts.

On March 23, the crypto community discovered a fake account of Brad Garlinghouse, the CEO of Ripple, which promotes a fraudulent airdrop. On March 19, a video describing the fake airdrop of 50 million XRP tokens was uploaded to YouTube.

The fraudulent account has about 277,000 subscribers and contains only one video describing the airdrop. At the time of publication, the video had nearly 90,000 views.

The video itself is not fake - this is an interview that Garlinghouse gave in February 2020. But the description below the video contains information about the airdrop, which supposedly takes place from March 20 to 25. The fraudster asks users to send from their 2000 XRP to 500,000 XRP to their address in order to “take part” in the airdrop and receive from 20,000 to 5 million XRP.

The co-founder of the crypto podcast SPQR Media, who first reported this account on Twitter, noted that this fraudulent channel is still being advertised on YouTube.

removal of adherent longists. I repeat, the reversal will begin only after a sufficient position has been accumulated below

It is noteworthy that the growth of military-technical cooperation from 3700 to 7000 was accompanied by a decrease in open interest

French court equals bitcoin with official currency

A court in France has equalized bitcoin with official currency, writes the local edition Les Echos. The decision was made on February 26, but it was made public only now.

The case concerned a dispute between the French exchange Paymium and the British investment firm BitSpread. In 2014, Paymium lent BitSpread a certain amount in bitcoins. After the Bitcoin Cash hard fork in 2017, holders of the original cryptocurrency could receive coins in the new blockchain. Because of this, the question arose whether BitSpread should transfer the BCH to the creditor.

In search of an answer, the court examined the legal nature of bitcoin and recognized it as an interchangeable asset, to which, like money, the general principles of lending apply. In other words, the ownership of the asset remains with the borrower for the duration of the agreement. Thus, the court concluded that BitSpread could keep BCH on the same principle as a shareholder receives dividends.

“This is an important decision, because it allows you to consider bitcoin as money or other financial instruments. This will facilitate operations with bitcoin and contribute to the growth of the liquidity of the cryptocurrency market, ”said Hubert de Voplan, a lawyer at Kramer & Levin.

Experts note that in the future, when entering into similar transactions with cryptocurrencies, their participants are likely to discuss in advance who owns the fork coins in case of occurrence.

In September 2019, French Minister of Economy and Finance Bruno Le Mayor announced that cryptocurrencies are taxable only at the stage of their withdrawal to traditional currency.

Stuttgart Stock Exchange has added a tool to open short positions on bitcoin

The Stuttgart Stock Exchange-listed this instrument Tuesday, whose price is inversely proportional to the price of bitcoin. According to a press release, the new exchange product (ETP) is available for trading in euros on the main market of Germany’s second-largest exchange. Short Bitcoin ETP (SBTC) was developed by 21Shares, formerly known as Amun.

“When the price of bitcoin goes down, ETP increases accordingly minus daily management fees,” the exchange explains. “The product is fully hedged by the underlying asset in a 1 to 1 ratio. The launch of this ETP is a natural extension of our line of non-margin crypto-ETPs.”

Earlier, 21Shares launched the same tool on Switzerland's leading SIX stock exchange. CEO Haney Rashwan claims that investors in Germany have shown increased interest in existing 21Shares crypto tools. SBTC has been assigned the international security identifier ISIN / WKN A2781V. According to Rashwan, this is the first such ETP for trading bitcoin.

Also, 21Shares serves crypto-ETP, tied to cryptocurrencies such as Ethereum, XRP, Binance Coin and Tezos, as well as to a basket of digital assets under the HODL ticker.

It became known last week that the Stuttgart Stock Exchange will offer institutional investors custodial services for storing cryptocurrencies through its Blocknox division.

BITCOIN.COM will not support tax for Bitcoin Cash miners

One of the largest mining pools in the Bitcoin Cash BTC network. Last week, TOP announced its intention to promote an initiative to collect 12.5% ​​of the rewards from each mined block for the development of the ecosystem. The offer received the support of other large mining pools, but now the face of Bitcoin Cash, Roger Ver refuses to participate in it.

“We think it is obvious that the existing proposal does not receive sufficient support, and we will develop a plan that will be beneficial for all interested participants and will also preserve the fundamental economic principles for the functioning of Bitcoin Cash,” writes Bitcoin, the company founded by Vera. Com.

Shortly before this, a group of anonymous miners criticized the proposal, promising:

“In the near future we will launch a competing BCH pool in order to give miners with a voice who do not agree with the proposal. We will voluntarily donate 1% of our income to the development team, while at the same time giving miners the opportunity to decide how best to manage this money. If the offer is not withdrawn or reduced to an acceptable form, we will continue to mine until the hard fork, which will result in our own chain. ”

Bitcoin Xio, the second most influential person after Vera in the r / btc Bitcoin Cash section of Reddit, initially stated that he did not approve the offer.

In this case, Bitcoin. Com does not rule out the very need for fundraising, noting that “Bitcoin Cash is at an important transitional stage,” and adds that any offer should be temporary.

“Bitcoin. Com will not take the risk of breaking the chain or changing the economy. To complete this plan, it will require the maximum support of economically significant participants in the ecosystem, including business, exchanges, miners, and the implementation of Bitcoin Cash, ”the company adds.

At the same time, Hasu blogger is discussing the impact of the BTC proposal. TOP will be on miners in a wider ecosystem of cryptocurrencies using the SHA256 hash algorithm, in particular Bitcoin and Bitcoin SV.

“Although someone might think that this change applies only to the BCH community, the effect will be much more widespread, since BCH shares the SHA256 algorithm with BTC and BSV. Accordingly, all miners working with SHA256 will be equally taxed with this tax, ”he writes.

Since miners whose equipment effectively copes with solving problems on the SHA256 can freely choose which chain they want to support using their computing power, we should expect that they will prefer the most profitable option. So, even Bitmain and Coingeek, who are in favor of Bitcoin Cash and Bitcoin SV, respectively, can transfer their computing power to the Bitcoin network if mining in it turns out to be more profitable, Hasu believes.

“What is the effect of the BCH tax? The BCH award pool is declining, and with it the entire SHA256 award pool is declining. There will now be fewer rewards for the same SHA256 hash rate, ”he explains.

Therefore, the equipment will have to be turned off by miners who are in the most unfavorable conditions not only in the Bitcoin Cash network, but throughout the SHA256 system.

“The least profitable BTC miners are not protected from the influx of computing power from more profitable competitors from BCH and BSV systems. A certain number of remaining in the plus BCH miners will move to the BTC and BSV networks. As a result, the profitability of all mining on SHA256 will drop. ”

At the same time, the blogger admits that the bitcoin hash is many times greater than the amount of computing power in the Bitcoin Cash network. However, all other things being equal, the BTC offer. TOP can be disastrous for bitcoin miners who still somehow manage to make ends meet, he said.
