Price Highs, Bull Runs, and Thieves: Bad Crypto News of the Week

Another good week for Bitcoin last week. The dollar price rose more than 5 percent, taking it to around $11,700. That rise wasn’t smooth. A flash crash took $1,500 off the price at one point, although investors remain bullish and the VIX volatility index, which is based on the S&P 500, is “extremely bullish.” Other volatility measures, though, suggest another drop to $10,000 before a new rally, while the Winklevoss twins think that the amount of infrastructure and capital in the crypto markets will make this bull run very different from the 2017 run.

It’s not just Bitcoin that’s been on a run, though. Ethereum has hit a two-year high of $400, supported by decentralized finance protocols, the anticipated arrival of ETH 2.0, and the general rise in the altcoin market.

Meanwhile, in the analog world, the US printed more money in June than it did in the first two centuries after its founding.

Canadian Markets Regulator Gives 3iQ Green Light to Offer Bitcoin Fund

Canadian Markets Regulator Gives 3iQ Green Light to Offer Bitcoin Fund

Canadian investment fund manager 3iQ will now be able to offer Canadian retail investors a regulated, publicly-traded Bitcoin (BTC) fund.

Bitcoin fund available to retail investors by end of year

In an Oct. 30 press release, 3iQ announced that it had received a favorable ruling from the Ontario Securities Commission (OSC) in regard to its closed-end Bitcoin fund, which is expected to be available on a major Canadian stock exchange by the end of the year.
In February, Canada’s markets regulator ruled negatively on 3iQ’s proposal to launch its regulated Bitcoin fund. However, the Toronto-based 3iQ appealed the decision and ultimately won approval from the OCS to launch its BTC fund. 3iQ chief executive Fred Pye said:
“Over the past three years, we have worked actively with the OSC’s Investment Funds and Structured Products Branch to create an investment fund that we hope will allow retail investors the benefits of investing in Bitcoin through a regulated, listed fund.”
Pye, who previously worked as senior VP at Fidelity Investments Canada, told the Financial Post that retail investors will be able to buy and sell the Bitcoin fund through traditional and discount brokers. The investments will also be eligible for Canadian registered retirement savings plans and tax-free savings accounts.
Gemini, the New York-based cryptocurrency exchange and custodian founded in 2014 by twin brothers Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss, will act as custodian of the fund’s Bitcoins.

Canada is exploring digital currency

The Bank of Canada is reportedly exploring possible opportunities and challenges related to launching its own digital currency. The central bank purportedly believes that a public central bank digital currency could be the answer to the direct threat that cryptocurrencies apparently present.

Significant people of The Crypto World

Significant people of The Crypto World
The cryptocurrency and blockchain spheres are less than 10 years old, but in this industry, thanks to the incredible speed of change, there are already “people-legends” that nobody knew about yesterday, and tomorrow the whole world will speak.
In this article, we will continue our acquaintance with crypto geniuses, which would eventually become more and more.
So who are the great minds of the virtual world?

Brock Pierce — from gamer to millionaire

https://preview.redd.it/cpg7ccxq1dm31.jpg?width=960&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=ce5d1f4cc2ff52aea425c68056d89c3d6f9b543e
Brock Pierce met cryptocurrencies through entertainment. In the 2000s, Pierce, being an avid gamer, founded one of the largest gaming companies selling virtual assets. Involvement in virtual currencies led Pierce into the world of the blockchain at the very beginning. He was fascinated by the potential of Bitcoin, so he decided to leave the gaming industry and start looking for, founding and financing cryptocurrency companies — Mastercoin, Blockchain Capital, Coinbase, Ethereum, Tether, Bitfury and now Block. one. Brock donated $1 billion to a decentralized autonomous community, which is created on the basis of the EOS platform.

Preethi Kasireddy — An engineer with a big heart

Preethi says she lives and breathes the idea of ​​a crypto.

Roger Ver — “Bitcoin Jesus”

https://preview.redd.it/s3bvu81w1dm31.jpg?width=4000&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=99660eb5ce334b35c948b6b21a5bdc44009f0b99
Roger Ver was one of the first investors in Bitcoin startups and financially helped several projects such as Blockchain. info and BitPay.
Roger first met Bitcoin while listening to the radio program. Later, when dealing with media representatives, Roger Ver said that he had not left his house for more than 7 days after that and was looking for any available information about this cryptocurrency. At that moment Roger realized that this virtual currency is the best form of financial resources that ever existed in the world. The desire to gain knowledge about Bitcoin led to a lack of sleep, because of which Roger Ver’s friend had to take the young entrepreneur to the hospital.
The entrepreneur has invested his own funds in a huge number of different projects related to Bitcoin virtual currency, including Blockchain. info, BitPay, Ripple and many others. Roger Ver’s total financial investment was approximately $1 million.
Communicating with media representatives, Roger Ver said that Bitcoin will meet many obstacles on its path, but it will be able to improve the quality of all people’s lives in the world. He also added that he does not care enough about short-term changes in the rate of this virtual currency.

Andreas Antonopoulos — Bitcoin Guru

https://preview.redd.it/jb2at1ey1dm31.jpg?width=722&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=8eacbcfeda54dbdac4fa7159ec9c6b6b9db36a9d

Andreas Antonopoulos is one of the world’s most famous Bitcoin and blockchain experts. He is a very popular speaker and he is interested not only in the investment side of technology, but also in the educational, political, cultural and human components.

Today Antonopoulos works in the Committee for Supervision of Bitcoin on the Chicago Mercantile Exchange. Today Antonopoulos works the Oversight Committee for the Bitcoin Reference Rate at the Chicago Mercantile Exchange.
Andreas has published many famous bestsellers about cryptocurrency. In particular, in 2014, Antonopoulos wrote the book “Mastering Bitcoin”.
Andreas emphasizes that he is not very interested in the spread of Bitcoin in developed Western countries. He is more fascinated by the idea that you can use Bitcoin in Kenya, Lagos or Nigeria with an old Nokia, and people who have never had access to banking services will be able to join the global economy this way.

Winklevoss brothers — the first Bitcoin billionaires

https://preview.redd.it/hqtmc7w02dm31.jpg?width=1140&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=b040bc864281973444df43b19aaf843d2c08eb64
The first in the world billionaires who earned a fortune on Bitcoins were American twin brothers Cameron and Taylor Winklevoss. The state of the brothers is estimated at 100 thousand Bitcoins, which is equivalent to 1.17 billion dollars.

Thinking of selling Bitcoin, please do yourself a favor and and WATCH this short video...

If you own Bitcoin and are thinking of selling please do yourself a favor and WATCH this short video, they explain everything you need to know about Bitcoin and where it's headed in the near and long term!
http://video.foxnews.com/v/5692125734001/?#sp=show-clips
These guys currently own $1 Billion USD in Bitcoin, and are daring Wall Street to Short BTC and put their money where their mouth is.
They got in in 2013 and still holding long term, Saying Bitcoin has a much higher value than the global gold market which is an over $6 trillion USD market cap! Currently sitting at less than 5% of the Global Gold Market. So they are convinced there is still a massive amount of growth down the road.
For anyone who doesn't know, these are the guys who started ConnectU with Zuckerburg as their coder. To which they claim he then stole the idea from them and started Facebook without their knowledge. They actually sued Facebook and won $65 Million USD. They are now worth over $1 billion from their Bitcoin investment. Feeling strongly it will continue to rise and is not a bubble. Challenging any of the naysayers to put their money where their mouth is and short it.
Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss, thought to be among the largest holders of bitcoin, said the advent of futures is just the beginning of a phase of greater acceptance for the cryptocurrency that is often derided as a bubble.
“We think it’s the starting gun to a whole new phase of liquidity and price discovery and sophisticated entrance to the market,” Tyler Winklevoss said during a Bloomberg Television interview.
The Winklevoss twins are co-founders of the Gemini exchange, which Cboe Global Markets Inc. is using as the basis for the daily settlement for the bitcoin futures that began trading this week.
The Winklevoss brothers said in 2013 that they owned almost $11 million worth of bitcoins. If they retained that stake it would be valued at about $950 million today, according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index. The ranking calculates they each have a $1.1 billion fortune as of Monday after taking into account other assets.

Bitcoin Price Stabilizes: Market Recovery Expected After Flurry of Positive News

Bitcoin has found stability in the low range of $6,300 to $6,400, demonstrating decent volume at around $3.8 billion and pushing its dominance index to 56.1 percent.
Well performing tokens including WanChain, VeChain, Decentraland, and Waltonchain have recorded large losses against the US dollar in the range of 5 to 10 percent, mostly likely due to the struggle of ETH, the native cryptocurrency of Ethereum, to recover beyond the $200 mark.
Positive News From EU, Nasdaq, Citigroup, Winklevoss Twins
The crypto sector has had arguably one of the best weeks in its nine-year history pertaining to institutionalization and regulation.
Over the past three days, Valdis Dombrovskis, vice president of the European Commission, said that cryptocurrencies will co-exist with the financial system, Nasdaq is preparing to release a crypto analytics tool for investors, Citigroup has shared its plans to support crypto custody, and Winklevoss twins-led Gemini has launched the first fully audited and licensed stablecoin in the market, called Gemini dollar (GUST).
The recognition of the cryptocurrency sector and the market’s growth throughout this year by the European Commission and a high ranking official in Dombrovskis is crucial for the long-term growth of the European cryptocurrency and blockchain sector.
For many years, Europe has struggled to show real momentum in market growth and cryptocurrency trading volume, falling behind the US, South Korea, and Japan. As of current, the daily trading volume of the crypto exchange market in South Korea remains bigger than the volume of all European nations combined.
But, positive comments from the European Commision and the optimistic approach towards industry regulation as seen in France will increase the probability of the European market challenging other dominant markets in the global sector.
“We also had a good exchange of views on crypto-assets. We see that crypto-assets are here to stay. Despite the recent turbulence, this market continues to grow,” vice president Dombrovskis said.
The release of GUSD has also been well accepted by the cryptocurrency community, as the dominance of Tether (USDT) over the cryptocurrency market since its launch in 2017 has sparked controversial debates within the community regarding the legitimacy of the market.
Experts have said that the fully audited and licensed stablecoin of Gemini will increase the legitimacy of the market and further improve its infrastructure.
No Impact on Price
In a bull market, any one of the developments the cryptocurrency sector has seen this week would have caused the price of major cryptocurrencies including Bitcoin to surge rapidly.
However, the cryptocurrency market is still in the process of bottoming out in a low price range and the past weeks have shown that the market remains unaffected by both negative and positive developments in the space.
Rather, the price of major cryptocurrencies has been driven solely by the market, as obvious it may sound. The announcement of Bakkt had virtually no impact on the price of Bitcoin and Ethereum, even though it was characterized as one of the most positive developments in the cryptocurrency sector in recent years.
In the upcoming weeks, stability in the market will likely continue, as it had done throughout August 6 to August 28. But, positive developments will contribute to the next mid-term rally, as the market establishes strong infrastructure to support large-scale institutional investors.

CME and Other Futures Exchanges -- Possibly Bad News for Cryptocurrency Exchanges?

I know a lot of people are excited for the CME Bitcoin futures to come online on December 18th, but I have some concerns about this event. I don’t have concerns about the price of Litecoin or Bitcoin, but rather, concerns about the many cryptocurrency exchanges we all use and love.
The Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) has announced that three companies will be offering Bitcoin futures: CME, CBOE, and Cantor Fitzgerald. What I find very intriguing is this: CME has stated that they will pull price data from the Crypto Facilities, and CBOE has stated that they will pull price data from the exchange Gemini. Some more information about this can be found in this recent coindesk article.
There is something here that I do not like, and here is why: CBOE using Gemini data is very suspect to me, as Gemini is owned and operated by the Winklevoss twins -- two very wealthy billionaires. Obviously, there is some kind of deal here, where Gemini and the Winklevoss twins are going to benefit from it.
We have this large futures exchange making deals with a single, non-market leading crypto exchange, which is owned and operated by elites (who likely had a hand in the financial crisis of 2008).
What CBOE should be doing, is pulling price data from many exchanges across the market, using a price index based on the market as a whole -- not a market localized to a single exchange. This is the route that CME is taking.
I'm afraid that this may cause Gemini to gain a lot of undeserved traction, and will lead to these billionaires profiting a lot more off of this. Since Gemini will represent the price of Bitcoin for a lot of futures backed by institutional money, I’m projecting that there will be a very sharp increase in trading on Gemini. I anticipate this because heavy trading on Gemini will have a direct impact on the performance of futures underwritten by CBOE. Wall-street likes to make money, and I have little doubt that they will play Gemini in order to profit from their futures positions.
I’m wondering if this will hurt the current market-leading exchanges, and fling Gemini at or near the top.
Thoughts?
TL;DR: CBOE will be using only one Gemini to obtain their price of Bitcoin for their futures trading. This could be bad news for other crypto exchanges.
EDIT: Removed some incorrect information regarding CME's price data for Bitcoin futures. CME will be pulling price data from several exchanges, not just one.
