    Best days of the week to trade BTC, and Craig Wright says he owns rights to Bitcoin network

    What days of the week it is best to buy and sell bitcoin

    Longhash, data analytics platform, conducted a study: which days and hours are the most profitable to buy and sell.

    For this study, experts analyzed two years of hourly bitcoin price data for each day of the week, having calculated the average prices of opening, closing, as well as maximum and minimum.

    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 c r y p t o currency’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 c r y p t ocurrency 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 c r y p t o 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 c r y p t o currencies and recommended that investors allocate 1-5% of their portfolio into bitcoin.

      “If you are very familiar with c r y p t o currencies 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 c r y p t o currencies, and Craig Wright seriously plans to seize all BTC

        China proposes to ban c r y p t o currencies and ICOs

        Chinese authorities must tighten control over the c r y p t o 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 c r y p t o currency circulation and ICO should be banned.

        “I always believe that speculation in c r y p t o currency 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 c r y p t o currency.

        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.

        c r y p t o currency 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 c r y p t o currency 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.

          42% of BTC has not moved since 2017, and trading volume on LocalBitcoins hits a 7-year low

          42% of BTC has not moved anywhere since 2017

          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 c r y p t o 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 c r y p t o 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

          Trading on the popular p2p c r y p t o currency exchange platform LocalBitcoins has dropped to the levels of 2013, according to Coin Dance.

          Last week, the weekly trading volume was 3,411 BTC, which is almost 10,000 BTC lower than in the same period last year. Such low volumes took place only when the exchange was launched. 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 c r y p t o currencies, 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 c r y p t o currencies

            The South Korean authorities have adopted amendments to the legislation of the country, which legalize trading and storing of c r y p t o currency.

            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.

            ******currency 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).

            Coinbase CEO: the number of c r y p t o currency users will grow 100-fold

            Today, the number of c r y p t o currency users is 50 million people, but this number can grow to 5 billion, says Brian Armstrong, Coinbase exchange CEO.

            The adoption of the blockchain will be similar to the spread of the Internet, Armstrong wrote in his Twitter account. In his opinion, a c r y p t o currency 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.

              Mark Cuban compared buying bitcoin and gold to collecting

              American billionaire and owner of the NBA Dallas Mavericks club, Mark Cuban, once again spoke about c r y p t o currencies, comparing them to gold and collectables.

              “With Bitcoin, some people value it as a store of value, which makes it like baseball cards, art [and] gold,” he said.

              Cuban, however, noted the value of the blockchain technology:

              “When people say c r y p t o currencies have no intrinsic value, they usually lose sight of the value of blockchain technology,” he added.

              Bitcoin options saw record volume

CME, which launched c r y p t o currency instruments in January this year, registered only about 1% of the trade turnover.

                    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 c r y p t o market has started recovering: total market cap has grown by 19% over the past 24 hours.

                    BTC price strengthened by 23%: from $5,500 to $6,800. Ethereum rose by 22% and now costs about $148, XRP went up by 15% to $0.1720, Bitcoin Cash - by 29% to $239.

                    The largest price surge among the TOP 100 c r y p t o assets was demonstrated by Bitcoin SV: the token has risen in price by more than 40% and is now trading near the $172 mark.

                    Trading volume on LocalBitcoins jumped by 21%

                    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 c r y p t o currency 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: c r y p t o currency 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 c r y p t o currencies 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 c r y p t o currency. According to him, “The longer the people can’t go outside to conduct their business, the more useful the c r y p t o currency 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 c r y p t o currency 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!
