Exchanges On Tuesday, February 13, users of the Coincheck exchange have withdrawn 40.1 billion yen ($ 373 million) from their accounts. It was the day when customers were first able to withdraw funds after the theft of approximately $ 500 million that occurred last month.

While the exchange is still a beta version, so the creators recommend using it with caution and reporting to the support team about any problems. Research and Analytics According to data Bitinfocharts.com, most of the 100 richest bitcoiners did not lose their assets during the last crash. On the contrary, their shares have increased exponentially. The largest revenues have recorded during the major crashes. Throughout 2017 there were six major corrections, in which bitcoin lost about 30% of the cost. Just in these periods, "whales" made their largest deposits. The Chinese company 360 Netla published analysis data, according to which 241 of the 100,000 most visited (according to Alexa Internet) websites contains code that uses users' computers for mining. 49% of these sites are pornographic. On February 13 Forbes for the third time presented a list of Fintech 50, which includes the 50 largest companies in the field of financial technology in 2018. It is noteworthy that 11 of the listed companies use blockchain technology closely with the cryptocurrency industry. Opinions Last week, Dan Morehead, the founder and head of Pantera Capital, on CNBC's Fast Money program, made very optimistic forecasts regarding bitcoin and the entire market. Referring to the past dynamics, he says that the last collapse of prices is absolutely normal. Moreover, he predicts a new period of growth in the next two weeks. This optimism shared by other representatives of the cryptocurrency market. Another opinion has expressed by Bloomberg expert Mike McGlone. Referring to examples of impressive growth and no less impressive fall of Amazon.com and Nasdaq Composite Index at the beginning of the millennium, he said that the price of bitcoin could drop to $ 900. At the same time a well-known venture capitalist Tim Draper says that the world needs a new currency, and bitcoin is the ideal candidate. Moreover, according to him, in the future a very large share of the world currency market, the current volume of which is estimated at $86 trillion, will be accounted for by the cryptocurrency. Charlie Lee spoke about the upcoming hardfork Litecoin Cash, after which all holders of Litecoin will receive a new coin. He called all "Litecoin forks" a fraud and an attempt to confuse users. Law Representatives of the federal government in Ohio confiscated bitcoins worth $ 4.7 million and computer equipment during the investigation of large-scale operations with fake identity cards. According to the head of the police service of the European Union (Europol) Rob Wainwright, recently criminals managed to launder $ 5.5 billion using cryptocurrencies. According to Wainwright, about 4% of all funds received by the criminal world were withdrawn using bitcoins or other crypto-currencies. Wainwright expects that this figure will grow. A group of Ukrainian hackers, calling themselves Coinhoarder, stole more than $ 50 million in cryptocurrency from users of Blockchain.info, one of the most popular providers of digital wallets. Telegram creators Pavel and Nikolai Durov have filed a “Notice of Exempt Offering of Securities” with the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), reporting $850 millions raised during ICO. Technologies Microsoft has announced plans to use blockchain technology as the basis for storing and processing digital identity data.

The company Nebula Genomics intends to digitize the genome of anyone who wishes for less than $ 1000, place it in a secure lock and then give its owner the opportunity to earn a crypto currency. The company will provide people with control over their genetic data (and their full-scale analysis) so that they have the right to provide their genomes for research and development of medicines. Blockchain, as argued in Nebula, will ensure the security of data and control over them, as well as exclude intermediaries. Developers of the Electrum wallet led by Christian Belcher have announced a new product called Electrum Personal Server (EPS). It is designed to provide secure and easy software wallets with a secure connection to the complete nodes of the network of bitcoins. While EPS is at the alpha.

  10. At the end of the week, we resume everything that the crypto community talked about over the past seven days. This week began with the continuation of the steep peak of bitcoin: on several major exchanges, the price briefly fell below $6000, provoking another panic-sell. A large number of FUDa in the media seemed to have to drag the rate even lower, and the news of the week about the collapse of the Dow Jones index also did not bode well. But after several critical marks, the rate quickly grew. By the way, there were even theories that growth contributed to the collapse of the Dow Jones, as money from the stock market flowed into the crypto currency: as they say, out of the fire and into the fire. The news of the week was the first in the history of the magazine Forbes rating of crypto-currency rich people. Changpeng Zhao, the head of the Binance exchange, took the third place in this list, but it was the cover due to the phenomenal growth of the exchange, which in the incomplete year became the largest non-credit crypto exchange. Business The world's largest online auction eBay refuses to partner with PayPal in the processing of payments after 15 years of cooperation in favor of the Dutch service Adyen, which integrated bitcoin into its system thanks to the partnership with BitPay.

Billionaire Mike Novogratz managed to collect approximately $ 250 million in bitcoins for his cryptocurrency trading bank.

Armenian parliamentarians are discussing the possibility of legalizing cryptocurrencies in the country. The authors of the bill propose to allow mining to citizens of the country not younger than 18 years, as well as legal entities.

The confrontation on the Korean Peninsula received a new impetus on Monday, February 5, when Seoul accused its Northern neighbor of hacking cryptocurrency exchanges, stealing bitcoins and other digital currencies for millions of dollars. While South Korean officials say they will not prohibit trade in cryptocurrencies. China continues its attempts to liquidate digital currencies in the country. So, this week the government decided to "intensify measures" against internal and external trading platforms. The Japanese national tax agency decided to strike at a crypto currency mania: now people who earn on digital currencies have to pay high taxes. Unlike stock and foreign currency earnings, which are subject to a 20% tax, the digital money rate in Japan ranges from 15 to 55%. The upper limit applies to persons with an annual income of at least 40 million yen ($ 365,000). Technologies Soon, it will operate two payment processors of lightcoin - LitePay and LitePal.

Chinese competitor search engine Google, Baidu, decided to join the technology of blocking. He began with the creation of a clone of the sensational game CryptoKitties, where the main characters instead of cats were dogs. An important difference CryptoDogs is that the game is not based on the blockbuster etherium, but on an alternative called Achain.

In addition, OpenBazaar has launched a beta version of Zcash: both currencies have been added to the new version 2.1. Bit.News
