Coinbase is a huge net positive for not just cryptocurrencies, but for the world, says Bitcoin Cash proponent Roger Ver

Roger Ver, a well-known Bitcoin Cash influencer and CEO of Bitcoin.com, spoke about the controversy surrounding #DeleteCoinbase campaign, where he stood by the exchange. He also explained the reason behind why he does not consider BTC to be Bitcoin, in an interview with BreakerMag. Coinbase, a leading cryptocurrency exchange platform, recently made an uproar in the cryptocurrency market over acquiring Neutrino, a blockchain analytics firm. This acquisition resulted in the majority of the cryptocurrency space joining the #DeleteCoinbase movement as the Neutrino team was previously associated with Hacking Team. More so, it was further revealed that the acquisition took place because Coinbase’s providers were selling its data to outside sources. However, while the majority of the space was chanting #DeleteCoinbase, Roger Ver, on the contrary, spoke in favor of the exchange. On his official social media handle, Ver had stated that the exchange has made a lot of contribution towards driving the adoption of the cryptocurrency space and that space should “be grateful despite a few poor decisions along the way”, adding “Don’t #DeleteCoinbase”. In the interview, Ver was asked whether Neutrino’s association with Hacking Team did not bother him, and the reason behing why he chose to stay beside the exchange. To this, Ver stated that he was “incredibly troubled” with the association, adding that this was a “really stupid mistake”. He went on to state, “But people make mistakes sometimes, and I don’t think that it was an intentionally bad mistake on Coinbase’s part. Once they saw the error of their ways, they fixed that. And Coinbase has onboarded millions and millions of people to cryptocurrency. I think Coinbase is a huge net positive for not just cryptocurrencies, but for the world.” This was followed by Ver speaking about the reason behind his belief that BTC is not Bitcoin. Ver has been previously criticized because of the same topic, so much so that there were people who were considering taking legal action against him. This was because of propagation that Bitcoin Cash [BCH] was the real Bitcoin. On this, Ver stated there were several people who have called him a “scammer” because of this, adding that there were barely any who was up for an argument, instead of name-calling. He also stated that there was a possibility of him believing that BTC was indeed the real Bitcoin, but stated that there weren’t “any arguments that are compelling at this point”. He said, “I came to those conclusions based on the logic and reason and evidence and arguments that favored those positions. And if someone wants to try and convince me that BTC is bitcoin, even though it’s not a peer-to-peer electronic cash system, I will listen to those arguments and evaluate them based on their merits.” The post Coinbase is a huge net positive for not just cryptocurrencies, but for the world, says Bitcoin Cash proponent Roger Ver appeared first on AMBCrypto.

Bitcoin Cash proponent Roger Ver’s special message to Craig Wright, says he is a ‘liar and a fraud’

Roger Ver, the CEO of Bitcoin.com and a well-known Bitcoin Cash proponent, is the latest to comment on the Craig Wright controversy by releasing a video titled ‘Special Message to Craig Wright’. In the short-video, Ver asserted that Craig Wright was a “liar and a fraud”, adding “sue me again!”. Notably, Ver and Wright were on good terms with each other, however, their alliance was broken due to the Bitcoin Cash hard fork, which took place in November 2018. Prior to the hard fork, Ver had even stated “Satoshi or not, the things Craig Wright is saying are exactly the things that caused me to sign up for Bitcoin in the first place” in a 2017 interview with Motherboard. The Bitcoin Cash hard fork hash war, however, saw Ver and Wright on opposite teams, with Ver supporting the Bitcoin ABC fork and Wright standing against the hard fork and promoting the Satoshi Vision upgrade. The bitter war had Ver stating that “maybe” he was fooled by Craig Wright, after he received an email from Wright. The email read, “If you want war… I will do 2 years of no trade […] I will see BCH trade at 0 for few years. Will you? Side with ABC, you hate Bitcoin, you are my enemy. You have fucking no idea what that means. You will. I AM Satoshi. Have a nice life. You will now discover me when pissed off. And, no. You could have had proof. You choice.” Nevertheless, this statement led to several members in the cryptocurrency community pointing out his previous statements that were in favor of Craig Wright, even when several influencers were against him. Source: Reddit Source: Reddit Todu, a Reddit user, said, “Haha. Nice and succinct! You could however also say that “[I think that] Craig Wright is definitely not Satoshi.” because you still have never said that very clearly. It’s possible to think that Craig is a liar and a fraud and that he’s Satoshi anyway […]” Interestingly, Bitcoin Cash [BCH] was the only coin in the top 10 to record a notable hike. According to CoinMarketCap, the coin was trading at $317.06 with a market cap of over $5 billion. The coin recorded a hike of over 5 percent in the past 24 hours and the past seven days.

Bitfinex goes insolvent around the time of the April bubble, coincidence? No.

This is Willybot all over again. CryptoTrading claims 850mil is "seized" by officials. Bitfinex/Tether co obtain a 900mil line of credit with a 6.5% interest rate. Markets see unprecedented buying action, with Bitfinex as the leading exchange, leading to the 20k USD bubble. You can't tell me that the timing of this is all coincidence. This is the exact same thing that happened with MtGox and it's market manipulation effort to pay back its losses. On March 29, after further discussions, the representatives disclosed in a letter to the AG that the credit line had been closed and “during November 2018, Tether transferred $625 million held in its account at Deltec to Bitfinex’s account at Deltec. Ergo, Tether is not currently backed by a reserve (unless they have access to another credit line we aren't aware of, seems unlikely though). In other words a portion of this market is currently propped up by money that does not exist. So people can stop saying that this news "shouldn't impact Bitcoin", because it clearly should and will.

XRP/USD and Stellar Lumens [XLM/USD] Price Analysis: Bear reigns as prices stagnate

The cryptocurrency market saw a roller-coaster ride over the past couple of months, and that was reflected in the prices and market caps of top cryptocurrencies. XRP, the third largest cryptocurrency, was stuck in the bear trap with no room for any bullish movement, while Stellar Lumens [XLM], which performed well at the start of the bull run, shared a similar fate to that of XRP. XRP 1 day Source: TradingView The one-day chart for XRP showed a downtrend that pulled the price from $0.517 to $0.371, while the long term support held at $0.291. The Bollinger bands moved parallelly due to the continuous sideways movement of the market. The Chaikin Money Flow indicator was below the zero line, as the capital leaving the market was much more than the capital coming into the market. The Awesome Oscillator recorded low amplitudes due to the lack of market momentum in the XRP ecosystem. XLM 1 day Source: TradingView XLM’s one day graph saw a drop in price from $0,278 to $0.138, while the long term support was at $0.074. The Parabolic SAR was above the price candles which signified that the cryptocurrency was going through a bearish atmosphere. The Relative Strength Index was closer to the oversold zone, a sign of the selling pressure being more than the buying pressure. The MACD indicator underwent a bearish crossover that caused the signal line and the MACD line to converge below. The MACD histogram was a mix of bearish and bullish signals. Conclusion The above-mentioned indicators clearly indicated that the cryptocurrency market was still in a bearish trudge and that there was no bull run in sight. This was evidenced by the significant drop in market momentum. The post XRP/USD and Stellar Lumens [XLM/USD] Price Analysis: Bear reigns as prices stagnate appeared first on AMBCrypto.
