'McAfee remembers. Tell them winter is coming': crypto crimes move to a new level

What's new? Mt.Gox will make a refund, crypto crimes will be exceeded, fake news on crypto taxes, Tether's volume increases, Ukrainian miners don't need a license, John McAfee claims he was poisoned & other news

  • Mt.Gox bankruptcy process has come to an end. Its trustee won't sell any more coins, as all remaining funds will be returned to its former customers in form of bitcoin and bitcoin cash. However, the refunding is expected to happen only in the middle or at the end of 2019, as all these legal procedures will take a lot of time.
  • Some Israeli experts agree that crimes in crypto space will be more numerous than all other cyber crimes. These crimes include hacks, money laundering and building financial pyramids and just straight scams.
  • It becomes harder to fight all kinds of cyber and financial crimes that use privacy-oriented coins, like Monero and Zcash. That was stated by Robert Novy, a Deputy Assistant Director of the US Secret Service’s Office of Investigation. He asked the Congress to come up with some countermeasures to prevent the use of these coins on US territory.
  • All news about the 10% taxation of crypto gains in South Korea were false. The South Korean government claimed it has no plans yet to collect any crypto-related taxes.
  • Tether volume has seen a drastic increase in the last few days. More than 3 billion a day, that signifies that many traders try to hedge against the further market drop. The volume of USDT even surpassed the volume of Ethereum, becoming the second largest cryptocurrency by the trading volume on the market.
  • Ukrainian miners aren't obliged to obtain any special license to maintain their activity, the Ukrainian government claims. The region becomes more and more attractive for mining due to favorable conditions and cheap electricity. However, there are other obstacles for local miners, including uncertainty of regulations and problems with corrupted officials.

  • Vitalik Buterin spoke at Chinese show, said that Ethereum won't see any more forks with the aim to restore lost funds. At the same time, he made a remark that it's still possible that in the process of migration to sharding there will be one-time recovery to as many users as possible. Also, he expressed his disagreement with existing rules that provide many privileges to accredited investors over small investors and called it a plutocracy.
  • The South Korean government will finance the blockchain sector, providing more than $200 million by 2022. The initiative is aimed to help more than 100 companies and 10,000 professionals in the industry, thus increasing its competitiveness in the world.

Bitcoin Price at $10,000 is in Danger As Bulls Begin to Lose Support

Bitcoin has been struggling to regain the bullish momentum its enjoyed for the bulk of 2019. Ever since December 2018 when Bitcoin price bottomed, it has mostly been on an upward ascent until it met former bear market resistance at $13,800 and it resulted in a nasty rejection and flash crash that put the entire parabolic rally on ice. Today, Bitcoin price dipped below $10,000 after bull lost daily and weekly support at around $10,185 but paused briefly at $9,800 before falling any lower. Will Bitcoin bull reclaim $10,185 and make an attempt higher? Or will $9,800 break and see a restest of lows around $9,200, and possibly even lower in the coming days ahead? Bitcoin Price Struggles to Maintain Support at $10,000, Bulls Losing Strength to Bears Bitcoin bulls have been not only breathing a sigh of relief now that Bitcoin is once again in the five-digit territory – a far cry away from its bear market lows around $3,000, that put real panic in the hearts of crypto traders and investors who feared the worst was ahead. But Bitcoin bounced, and it brought the first-ever crypto-asset well above $10,000 to $13,800 where it was rejected by former bear market resistance and has struggled ever since to make another attempt at breaking above it. Now, Bitcoin is struggling to even maintain $10,000, the important resistance that was supposed to act as a FOMO trigger taking the crypto asset to new highs. It did incite some FOMO, but not enough to get Bitcoin to revisit its previous all-time high of $20,000 it set back in December 2017. Will Bulls or Bears With the Battle for BTC and Its Short Term Trend Future Most are in the long-term extremely bullish on Bitcoin. Many expect the crypto asset to eventually reach prices of $100,000 to as much as a million per BTC. But irrational exuberance also permeates throughout the crypto industry, and crypto enthusiasts often let their imagination and speculation get the best of them. Clearly, Bitcoin is at an impasse in terms of trading, and whichever direction is finally chosen could set the trend for the short- and medium-term. $BTC looks to be creating lower-highs and lower-lows on the daily chart Marked are the open and support areas based on the weekly chart with previous support possibly flipping to resistance If confirmed, watching the next weekly support at $8975 as a potential target pic.twitter.com/yG2WO2yrzX — Josh Rager (@Josh_Rager) July 23, 2019 If Bitcoin were to break below $10,000 with strength, taking out $9900 and $9800, a retest of where it bounced in recent days at $9,200 would be retested, as well as potential weekly support at just under $9,000. If Bitcoin can reclaim weekly support turned resistance at $10,200, it could make a run toward $10,500 or higher, where the weekly candle opened on Sunday night. A break above that could have Bitcoin trying for $11,000 or retrying to incite a bull run above where the major rejection happened.
