100 Crypto Exchanges’ Security Assessed

Over the last few months, Crypto Exchange Ranks (CER) has been shining a light on the practices of the exchanges tasked with protecting customer funds and fairly reporting trading volume and other metrics. While a good number of exchanges act ethically, there is a lot of unscrupulous operators out there. In its latest report, CER has applied a security score to the top 100 exchanges, ranking them for server security, user security, and an ongoing crowdsourced security assessment.

The top 20 exchanges for security according to CER

Just nine exchanges scored more than 8/10 in the report, with the top four comprising Kraken followed by Coinbase Pro, Binance, and Bitmex. Not surprisingly, the exchanges that received the lowest score were troubled by hacks during 2018. Bithumb, Coincheck, and Zaif all scored less than 5/10.

Enjinx Launches New Block Explorer

Enjinx has launched its new blockchain explorer. The tool, for interacting with the Ethereum network, is characterized by a clean and minimal design that sets it apart from traditional blockchain explorers. The Enjinx team is aiming to position its new resource in direct competition to Etherscan, the most popular explorer within the Ethereum ecosystem. Transactions, blocks, and ERC20 tokens can all be browsed, with the most popular Ethereum tokens ranked by 24-hour volume, price change, and market cap.

Enjinx is now working on integrating Bitcoin Core, Litecoin, and Dogecoin explorers in a bid to become the go-to tool for cryptocurrency users seeking to query public blockchains. The project’s Ethereum explorer is also scheduled to be upgraded further to incorporate data on ERC1155 and ERC721 non-fungible tokens.

Bitfinex Denies Security Breach After KYC Details Surface on Darknet

The Daily: 100 Exchanges’ Security Rated, Enjinx Block Explorer LaunchesCustomers of several leading crypto exchanges have had their personal details leaked according to a darknet hacker. “ExploitDOT” claims to have the details of 100,000 crypto customers, including selfies, passport scans, and other identification documents. The allegedly stolen data is believed to originate from early 2018 and pertains to Binance, Bitfinex, Poloniex and Bittrex. Bitfinex has issued a denial that it has suffered a security breach, though given that the hack is thought to have come from a third party KYC processor, this doesn’t mean that Bitfinex users are unaffected.

On darknet forum Dread, ExploitDOT insisted that his trove of documents was legitimate, writing “if you ever sent a KYC, chances are … your documents [are] in my dump,” adding that “the exchanges are completely denying the documents were took from them, whereas there is clearly docs with ‘Binance’, ‘Poloniex’ and such written on the paper.” While the veracity of the haul is debated, the story has reaffirmed to many in the crypto community something they have always known: enforced KYC makes everyone less secure.

Ethereum Price Analysis Jan.22: ETH Struggles To Stay Above $100 Following a Death Cross

Over the past two days, BTC has been going sideways. This consolidation came up following a very bearish hourly candle that dropped BTC from $3690 to $3470 (Bitstamp).

It is unclear at the moment if this consolidation will turn into a bear flag formation (more bearish action to come) or a “drop base rally” formation (inverted Bart pattern) which will typically lead to a bounce back upward.

ETH, at the same time, retested the last support level of $113.6 and is currently ‘locked up’ in a channel. The range of $111 – $113 serves as a support level and $121 – $126 as a resistance level.

Looking at the 4-hour ETH-USD chart

  • At the moment of writing this post, ETH is trading at the $116 price level, and very likely to test the mentioned support level of $111 – $113 one more time shortly.
  • A break below the support level might lead to a bearish continuation toward the next support range of $100 – $105.
  • There is a clear bearish triangle visible on the ETH chart; if this formation plays out, it has a target at around the $100 price level area (which is the next support level).
  • In the case of a positive bounce, ETH might try to test the channel resistance level at $121-$126. A break above that resistance could send ETH for the next target, at the $130 support turned resistance level.
  • ETH is still trading around the 0.5 – 0.618 Fibonacci retracement level (calculated form the last rally’s peak), while the Bulls wish to see a stronger reaction at this critical support level. The lack of these signs of strength might be a red flag for the Bulls.
  • Notice that ETH is trading below all EMA’s.

ETHUSD_22jan_4h

Looking at the 4-hour ETH-BTC chart

  • The 55 EMA (marked by a yellow line) is crossing below the 200 EMA (marked by a white line). This cross is known as a Death Cross, and might become a very bearish signal, with that said, the 55 EMA could still bounce back above as a fake cross.
  • The RSI indicator found support at the 30 area, above the oversold territories.

YouHodler First to Add Bitcoin Cash and Bitcoin SV

[Limassol, Cyprus 22, January 2019] – FinTech platform YouHodler recently announced their support of both Bitcoin Cash (BCH) and Bitcoin SV (BSV), making them the first platform to do so in their respective industry. Rising from the aftermath of 2018’s “crypto winter,” YouHodler seeks to make the loan process faster and more affordable than their competitors and accessible for crypto investors everywhere.

Following the Bitcoin Hash War in November 2018, supporters of both BCH and BSV went their separate ways. YouHodler saw this as a prime opportunity to offer a unique feature that other platforms lack. Currently, users can choose both BCH and BSV (along with BTC, XRP, ETH, LTC and more) as collateral options on YouHodler’s platform, making them the first to do so in their industry. This allows “hodlers” of both coins to get cash for their crypto now, while both BCH and BSV discover their utility and place in the market. Once users pay back the loan, they get their crypto back.

Aside from offering the most options, YouHodler also features the highest loan-to-value ratio on the market (80%), making them more accessible and affordable than competitors. Founder and CEO Ilya Volkov had this to say about the new BCH and BSV additions:

“We are happy to welcome BCH and BSV hodlers to our platform which allows them to hedge their crypto portfolio until stabilisation and further growth of prices occurs. Simultaneously, we are excited to create a new utility for these coins. We believe that the more utility any coins has, the more value it brings to its users and also, the entire community.”

YouHodler is a crypto backed lending platform that allows users to request an instant cash loan in EUR or USD while using their crypto as collateral. With no minimum monthly payments, no hidden fees and more cryptocurrency as collateral options than anyone else in the industry, YouHodler’s unique and innovative technology makes the loan process instant and affordable.

Airdrop Mishap Causes Korean Exchange to Accidentally Send BTC to Customers

Airdrop Mishap Causes Korean Exchange to Accidentally Send BTC to Customers

A South Korean crypto exchange mistakenly sent its customers BTC and other cryptocurrencies due to an error during an airdrop. Some users immediately sold the coins, causing the prices of a number of cryptocurrencies on the exchange to sharply fall. The exchange said, however, that the majority of customers have agreed to return the funds.

Airdrop Error

Airdrop Mishap Causes Korean Exchange to Accidentally Send BTC to CustomersSouth Korean cryptocurrency exchange Coinzest reportedly sent its customers BTC and other cryptocurrencies while trying to airdrop WGT tokens. The exchange posted a notice on its website that at approximately 18:30 p.m. Korean time on Jan. 18:

The WGT token airdrop process caused a computer error that incorrectly reflected the deposit details of some customers’ assets … we took measures to immediately check the server to prevent any additional damage as a result of the sales and purchases of some misappropriated assets by some customers.

The exchange’s computer program “allocated a particular cryptocurrency to the event,” Sedaily explained on Monday, noting that “Coinzest originally tried to airdrop 30,000 WGT coins, but accidentally entered data to airdrop other coins.”

Airdrop Mishap Causes Korean Exchange to Accidentally Send BTC to Customers

An official of the exchange said that about 400 members were supposed to receive WGT tokens, Hankyung publication reported, adding that other cryptocurrencies such as BTC and ETH were sent to members’ wallets. The news outlet elaborated that “about 10 members tried to sell about KRW 600 million worth [~$530,000] of cryptocurrencies or to withdraw money in Korean won even though they recognized the mistake of depositing money and computer errors. [Therefore] there has been a problem of rapid price decline.”

The price of BTC and a number of other cryptocurrencies on Coinzest subsequently plummeted at about 7 p.m. Korean time on Jan. 18, with BTC’s price falling to 999,000 won (~$883) from over 4 million won.

Asking Customers to Return Coins

After detecting the problem, Coinzest immediately halted trading and performed a server checkup, according to a notice on its website. It then resumed trading the next day. “The asset and transaction information was restored to 18:33:18 on the 18th, the last time a normal transaction occurred before the computer error occurred,” the exchange clarified. Hankyung detailed:

Coinzest immediately contacted the customers and asked them to return their assets. The majority of the members promised to return [them].

Coinzest CEO Jeon Jong-hee was quoted by the publication as saying, “I am extremely sorry that I have caused an unexpected computational error to customers … I am very sorry for my customers.” He added that his exchange’s emergency response system will be strengthened to prevent the problem from recurring.

Airdrop Mishap Causes Korean Exchange to Accidentally Send BTC to Customers

An official of another cryptocurrency exchange commented that the fact that a staff’s mistake can lead to this error means “there is always a possibility of tampering with the exchange system,” Sedaily reported. He further asserted that the government will not be able to trust exchanges to manage transaction records.

In April last year, another South Korean crypto exchange, Cashierest, suffered an internal system error that allowed its users to withdraw more coins than they requested.

Can The New Bitcoin ATM survive in Venezuela’s Tightly Restricted Forex Market?

TL: DR

  • Venezuela’s hyperinflation and restricted access to foreign currencies makes it a hotbed for Bitcoin adoption
  • A surge in Bitcoin demand has led to a new Bitcoin ATM being launched in the country, but can it survive if it openly threatens to upend the government issued Petrodollar?

By now it’s no secret that the people of Venezuela have been facing significant hardships regarding access to a useful and stable national currency.

In the last year, we’ve seen headlines of the Venezuelan Government engaging in hyperinflation (where the inflation rate was projected to surge by 1 million percent by the end of 2018) as well as enforcing severe travel and foreign exchanges restrictions that have made it almost impossible for its citizens to live normal lives.

Citizens have been forced to spend barrels of money to buy everyday groceries like bread and eggs.

To make matters worse, the Government has been peddling its very own cryptocurrency (the Petrodollar) to its citizens and the rest of the world as a way to raise money to pay back their massive debts and refuel its economy.

Out of desperation, many citizens have turned to Bitcoin, with reports stating that the price of Bitcoin in Venezuela is now doubling roughly every three weeks, and that bitcoin trading volumes keep hitting record highs at citizens try to retain what they can out of their failing national currency.

All of this has led to the recent news that Venezuela will now see its first Bitcoin ATM open in 2 weeks. The ATM is in the final stages of being set up in the national capital, Caracas. However, is the Venezuelan government ready to accept its citizens trading their national currency for Bitcoin out in the open?

Venezuela’s History of Forex restrictions could be bad news for Bitcoin

The country has had a poor reputation of restricting the ability of private companies and individuals’ ability to convert their local currency (Bolivars) into foreign currencies. These restrictions make it difficult for local businesses to claim profits generated in Bolivars by converting them to foreign currency, or to convert Bolivars to foreign currency when they need to buy supplies or pay debts in those foreign currencies.

For citizens, the restrictions have made it easy for Venezuela’s Government to exploit peoples desperate need to claim money sent home from family members aboard by charging exorbitant fees and offering phony exchange rates.

These are just a few examples of how the Venezuelan Government suppresses its people and businesses regarding the exchange of local fiat currency for foreign fiat.

Will Bitcoin exchanges threaten Petrodollar the same way foreign fiat threatens the Bolivar?

Now we are seeing a similar situation occur with cryptocurrencies, as the Venezuelan Government is reportedly forcing citizens to pay for essential products like passports using the new Petrodollar.

At the same, time, there have been reports that LocalBitcoins was no longer accessible in Venezuela. It would be no surprise that the government would try to limit citizens’ access to Bitcoin to force them to rely solely on the Petrodollar.

To that end, the Bitcoin ATM, although incredibly useful, may not last if it begins to attract too much attention and Government sees it as a threat to the value of their national cryptocurrency.

At this time it’s too early to tell, but it will be interesting to see what comes out of Venezuela’s ATM in the next year.

BoE Senior Advisor: Cryptocurrencies ‘Are a Threat’ But I’m Not Too Worried

Live from a snow-covered World Economic Forum in Davos, the IMF cuts the global economic growth outlook by 3.5%, the lowest in three years. Senior adviser to the Bank of England Huw van Steenis is leading their review of the future of finance, which he insists doesn’t include cryptocurrencies.


Bank of England Advisor: Banks Must Spend More on Digital Transformation

Having carved out his career at Morgan Stanley and Schroders, Huw van Steenis has a proven track record in finance. Now he’s heading up the “future of finance” for the next five-to-10 years in the UK. And his goal is to make it a “vibrant financial center” going forward.

He tells Bloomberg that high on his priority list is the payment system and digital transformation. He stresses that the main challenge will be incumbent banks adjusting and adapting to the threat from fintech. Banks are only spending around 25% of their tech budgets on digital transformation and that’s got to be higher.

When asked if fintech and cryptocurrencies could become a serious threat to the stability of the economy and whether central banks need to look at that, he said:

I’m not so worried about cryptocurrencies… They fail the basic tests of financial services. They’re not a great unit of exchange, they don’t hold value, and they’re slower… that’s at the moment, but they’re a threat.

Cryptocurrencies Are a Threat – But Not Much of One

He does make a small concession to crypto by saying that one of the BOE’s largest challenges is regulation. Specifically, how to regulate certain new entrants to the banking system.

However, when pressed a second time on Bitcoin and whether digital banking faces the same volatility issues, he brushes it off once more.

There are risks from all these new challenges coming through but cryptocurrencies aren’t high on my worry list.

He’s more concerned about keeping pace with fintech innovation, stressing that the main focus will be whether new fintechs can get their platforms ready and the customers onboard before the incumbents manage to adapt.

Should bankers like Huw van Steenis be more worried about the cryptocurrency threat? Share below!

How to Buy Bitcoin Anonymously

How to Buy Bitcoin Anonymously

Buying bitcoin is not a revolutionary act. Nor should it be. And yet the way statists, apparatchiks and politicians bang on, you’d think the mere act of acquiring digital currency was akin to receiving the keys to a pandora’s box in which lurks every illicit artifact known to man. One day, these dinosaurs will begrudgingly concede that buying bitcoin is no more seditious than buying a soda with a $20 bill. But until then, you’ll want to preserve your privacy when acquiring cryptocurrency.

Buy Your Bitcoin, Keep Your Privacy

The reasons why you might want to keep bitcoin ownership to yourself don’t require rehashing. Put simply, though, it’s no one’s damn business what you want to do with your money or how you wish to store your wealth. In the future, governmental scrutiny of bitcoin ownership will look as archaic and benighted as state intrusion into the religious or sexual preferences of its citizens. By the time that day comes, bitcoin may be worth a lot more than it is today. The steps you take to preserve your privacy in the present, therefore, may prove particularly precious in the future. Just think about 2011 bitcoiners who had no need to conceal their ownership at the time, only to find themselves sitting ducks once those bitcoins multiplied 3,000x by 2017.

How to Buy Bitcoin AnonymouslyAnonymously buying bitcoin in small amounts is relatively easy, though getting your hands on larger quantities without having to jump through hoops can be harder. Just as it’s common practice to use fake personal details when signing into public wifi, the same can be done when buying bitcoin through ATMs and terminals such as the newly repurposed Coinstar machines. Doing so will require a burner phone or a secondary SIM card that isn’t tied to your real world identity. Alternatively, search for “receive SMS online” to find links to services that will provide you with a one-time number.

Buying Bitcoin in Person

In addition to BATMs, which can be used to buy a few hundred bucks’ worth of crypto at a time, P2P sites like Localbitcoins.com enable you to locate sellers in your area and meet them in person. Better still, if you have acquaintances who work in the cryptocurrency industry or mine crypto, you should be able to purchase bitcoin directly from them, since they’ll be obliged to periodically liquidate some of their coins for fiat to cover living expenses. Newly mined coins are particularly precious (which is why they’ve been known to fetch a premium on OTC markets) because they have no history associated with them.

How to Buy Bitcoin Anonymously

Purchasing bitcoin face-to-face (or face-to-ATM) brings its own risks, of course, particularly from a privacy perspective. If you would prefer it that no one knew of your business – not the miner you’re buying crypto from, nor the surveillance cameras watching you feed banknotes into the BATM in the 7/11 – you’d be better served transacting online. While this removes the ability to transact in cash, there are privacy gains to be made elsewhere.

Anonymously Buying Bitcoin Online

Finding a bitcoin marketplace that won’t KYC the hell out of you isn’t easy, but there is one platform that stands out from all the boot-licking exchanges willing to do the government’s bidding. Its name is Bisq, and what it lacks in liquidity and spot prices, it makes up for in privacy. The range of payment methods the P2P marketplace accepts is extensive: face-to-face is even an option, if you’re fortunate enough to live within range of a seller. Generally speaking, you’ll need to make payment using an e-wallet or bank transfer. While this entails certain compromises from a privacy perspective, it’s easy to disguise the nature of the transaction using a generic banking reference such as “Car” or “Video editing.”

How to Buy Bitcoin AnonymouslyJust as Localbitcoins.com will connect you with sellers willing to meet face-to-face, it will link you online in a manner similar to Bisq. Once again, if paying by bank transfer, you can put whatever you like on the pay-in reference, as most sellers do, as putting “bitcoin” on a bank reference is asking for account suspension. (This will change one day, but by the time it does, banks will no longer be relevant and will be begging bitcoiners for business.) It’s easy to set up a Localbitcoins account using a private email account, such as Protonmail, and a fake social media account and burner number if you’re particularly cautious. Hodl Hodl is another P2P market where verification is optional rather than enforced. The number of available offers is low, but Hodl Hodl has a wider range of cryptocurrencies including XMR and EOS.

Buy Privately Then Stay Private

Anonymity measures shouldn’t end the moment you’ve bought bitcoin. It’s an ongoing mindset that calls for using privacy-centric wallets such as Wasabi, avoiding sending funds to exchanges that enforce KYC, and also avoiding address reuse. But those are all topics we’ll cover in one of our next “How To” guides. Like bitcoin itself, privacy is likely to become an increasingly precious commodity in the years to come. The steps you take now to preserve yours will pay future dividends.

What other platforms do you recommend for buying bitcoin without KYC? Let us know in the comments section below.

Host a BCH Giveaway With Bitcoin.com’s Golden Ticket Software

Host a BCH Giveaway With Bitcoin.com's Golden Ticket Software

Have you ever thought about creating a cryptocurrency giveaway during a hosted event? Now you can create your own crypto-based sweepstakes with Bitcoin.com’s event paper wallet generator. With Bitcoin.com’s Golden Ticket program and open source code, the software allows anyone to develop fantastic tickets funded with bitcoin cash (BCH).

Create Your Own Bitcoin Cash Giveaway With Bitcoin.com’s Golden Ticket Software

At Bitcoin.com we love to spread cryptocurrency awareness. In order to further grow adoption in a fun way this month, we decided to publish the open source Bitcoin.com Golden Ticket repository which can be found on Github. The code allows anyone with a light knowledge of terminal command prompts to create amazing giveaway tickets loaded with BCH. The Golden Ticket platform allows the creator to choose a custom mnemonic language or Hierarchical Deterministic (HD) key creation. But it also generates HTML, pdf, and a spreadsheet mapping of the Cashddr format, Privkey, and index the swept status of each golden ticket. Alongside this, the giveaway ticket creators can redeem unswept BCH after a certain period of time.

Host a BCH Giveaway With Bitcoin.com's Golden Ticket Software
Spread adoption with Bitcoin.com’s Golden Ticket.

Bitcoin.com’s Golden Ticket program requires the installation of Nodejs LTS version 8 and use of the computer’s terminal application to run command lines. After Nodejs has been added, the user simply clones the Golden Ticket Github repo and installs the dependencies. There are seven actions within the workflow, comprising generating a wallet, creating addresses, initiating a CSV, funding the mothership address, funding secondary addresses, generating stats, and lastly reclaiming the funds that were unswept.

How to Create Custom Golden Tickets

Host a BCH Giveaway With Bitcoin.com's Golden Ticket Software
Bitcoin.com’s Golden Ticket app requires Nodejs and a little terminal prompt knowledge.

The first thing to do is generate a 256-bit mnemonic and BIP44 BCH address by typing “npm run generate-wallet” into the terminal. After that, you will be prompted to choose a language out of the eight available. If you don’t enter a language, the Golden Ticket program will default to English.

Following this choice, you should choose an HD path. If nothing custom is chosen, it will default to the BIP44 account of your mnemonic: m/44’/145’/0′. From here you can choose a custom name for the giveaway ticket event or choose to leave it as is and let the name default to “Golden Ticket.” After the name is chosen, it will write to the owner’s mnemonic, HD Path, and the mothership address. The address, called the mothership, is the address an individual or organization funds in order to fund all the other generated addresses.

Host a BCH Giveaway With Bitcoin.com's Golden Ticket Software

After running the command line “npm run create-addresses” the program will prompt the creator for an event name, HD Account and an address count. You can verify the addresses created by typing “npm run create-csv” and follow this step by funding the mothership address. Our Golden Ticket program shows the mothership’s written alphanumeric address alongside a QR code that’s easy to fund. After the waller is loaded, simply type “npm run fund-addresses” to begin adding bitcoin cash to the satellite addresses tethered to the mothership.

From here, the lotto tickets can be printed on paper or card material in order to hand out at an event. After the event finishes, you can simply run the Golden Ticket software and enter “npm run generate-stats” into the terminal to generate basic stats about the event’s tickets. If a lot of people in the crowd decided not to sweep the bitcoin cash into a mobile wallet or desktop client at home, the mothership can have funds sent back after a certain period of time. If the creator wishes, the custom giveaway tickets can have a disclaimer on them explaining there is a time frame for redemption.

Host a BCH Giveaway With Bitcoin.com's Golden Ticket Software
We gave away Golden Tickets loaded with BCH at the Libertycon 2019 event in Washington D.C.

Giveaways generate a lot of excitement and we think funded tickets with the best peer-to-peer cash system in the world go hand in hand with cool events. Bitcoin.com recently gave out a ton of Golden Tickets to participants at Liberty Con 2019 in Washington D.C. and the initiative was a great success. If you want to learn how to make your very own bitcoin cash-funded Golden Tickets then check out our repository for more instructions on installation and funding.
