Data Breach



Crypto Bytes
DIGESTIBLE CRYPTO NEWS



No one has ever hacked Bitcoin. It is the most secure computing network in the world.
– Anthony Pompliano, Morgan Creek Digital Assets co-founder



Hey All,

Just as Equifax settles a $700 million dollar fine for a data breach that affected 174 million user account, Capital One was hacked. Capital One announced that personal information including names and addresses of about 100 million individuals in the United States and 6 million people in Canada were obtained.

Data breaches are becoming all too common. The problem is companies store users’ data in a centralized server which makes it prone to systemic risk, everyones information being exposed with a single breach.

Blockchain technology solves this because information is stored in a decentralized network rather than under a single entity. If a user gets hacked it effects only a single user rather than the whole network.

Who’s up…

Buying Bitcoin to brace for Brexit.

What is Brexit… Brexit is an abbreviation for “British exit,” referring to the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union. Britain’s Prime Minister Boris Johnson, vowed to leave the European Union, “do or die,” by October 31st.

Losing pounds…The fear is that Britain is heading towards a no-deal Brexit, which would cast most of the UK into trade and travel turmoil. Member countries of the EU would likely suffer an economic setback in the fallout, leading to a lack of confidence in both the pound and euro.

Bitcoin search… Bitcoin searches surge as Britain prepares for Brexit. According to data compiled through Google Trends, ‘bitcoin’ search volume has risen to its highest level in a year in England and other parts of the UK.

THE TAKEAWAYS

  1. The pound slumped to its weakest level in more than two years Tuesday. That’s bad news for Britain.
  2. When your local currency depreciates in value the cost to import goods and services are more expensive. Britain imports more than it exports.
  3. British citizens will likely buy alternative currencies to hedge against the Pound losing value. Based on Google’s search results, we see there is an interest in Bitcoin as a hedge.

Number Of The Week: 85%
This week, 17,850,000 bitcoin have been mined meaning 85% are in circulation.

Even if we wanted, we couldn’t ban Bitcoin. 

Roll Call…U.S. Senator Mike Crapo (R-Idaho) admitted that it would be difficult or impossible to ban bitcoin in the United States. ‘I’m pretty confident we couldn’t succeed in doing that [ban bitcoin] because this is a global tech, a global innovation.”

Rep. Patrick McHenry was also open to the digital asset ecosystem and admitted bitcoin was an “unstoppable force.”

THE TAKEAWAYS

  1. Bitcoin > Libra. The decentralization feature to Bitcoin makes it immune to government intervention.
  2. If your going to send a subpoena to Bitcoin, where do you send it?
  3. Read below to find out how the US government is putting the brakes on Facebook’s Libra.

REKT
…Who’s down

Libra might not see the light of day.

Facebook warns investors… Facebook says in the risk factors section of its latest quarterly report that it can’t guarantee Libra “will be made available in a timely manner, or at all.”

“Libra has drawn significant scrutiny from governments and regulators in multiple jurisdictions and we expect that scrutiny to continue,” Facebook said in its filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

THE TAKEAWAYS

  1. We can’t stifle innovation because lack of understanding. The failure to act and adopt blockchain and cryptocurrencies will put the US at a severe disadvantage to the countries that do accept the technology.
  2. Compare the success of the countries (and companies) that failed to adopt the internet and the one’s that embraced the technology and saw the opportunity.
  3. David Marcus, head of Libra project, understood that Libra would get push back which is why they shared their White paper well before they develop Libra.
  4. Marcus stated in the Senate hearing that Libra will not move forward without addressing all concerns.

Stocks plummeted because US & China failure to agree on a trade deal just started a currency war. 

iPhones 10% more expensive… The US pledged a 10% tariff on the remaining $300B in Chinese goods. Since tariffs are like taxes, that would make the Chinese-produced iPhone X 10% more expensive to Americans.

US just labeled China a currency manipulator… China’s government weakened its currency so now your $1 buys 7 Chinese Yuan — the weakest level the currency has hit in over a decade.

Why tariffs & currency manipulation… Tariffs make it more expensive to manufacture in China which encouraging US companies (like Apple) to make stuff elsewhere.
By weakening the value of its currency compared to the US dollar, China offsets part of the tariff’s impact.

THE TAKEAWAYS 

  1. Trade wars are not good for anyone. Tariff’s ‘tax’ will ultimately fall on US consumers to pay more. 
  2. Investors are looking for a safe haven. Bitcoin’s price was up 20% this week and gold reached record highs.
  3. Government’s can be very unpredictable to adjust currency supply using method such as quantitative easing and interest rates. What is great about Bitcoin is that code is open source and you can know at any time the amount of circulating Bitcoin.

CORRECTION
What is Libra? 
I just wanted to correct something from last weeks newsletter where we broke down Libra. I wrote Libra was pegged to the US dollar when in fact, it is pegged to a basket of different currencies.

Stable Coin… Libra is pegged to a basket of currencies that will anchor its value. Merchants will be more likely to accept a cryptocurrency who’s price does not fluctuate.

In case you missed last weeks newsletter you can read up on Libra here.

Economic Uncertainty Ahead



Crypto Bytes
DIGESTIBLE CRYPTO NEWS



At some point, the dollar has to give. You can’t just keep printing money, and monetizing debt, and buying bonds, without the dollar imploding..
– Peter Schiff, chief global strategist of Euro Pacific Capital Inc.



Hey All,

Lately, we are experiencing a lot of global uncertainties. Just to name a few, currency crises in Venezuela and Argentina, Britain leaving the European Union, and trade wars between United States.

As a result, investors are buying up gold as a safe haven for the looming uncertainties. Could we begin to see investors moving into digital gold?

Salary payments in cryptocurrencies.

Way to go! New Zealand… will legally allow companies to pay salaries in cryptocurrency starting September 1, becoming the first nation to do so, according to a Financial Times report.

Bitcoin…to replace the New Zealand dollar on workers’ paychecks.

The Caveat… The country’s tax agency ruled salaries and wages may be paid in cryptocurrencies so long as the preferred digital coin is pegged to at least one standard, or fiat, currency.

THE TAKEAWAYS

  1. It is good sign when countries are viewing cryptocurrencies as an asset rather than a speculative pump and dump.
  2. September 1st is only two weeks away. Will be an interesting to see how many people take their salary in Bitcoin and if other countries follow.

Number Of The Week: $10 million
Initial minimum investment to join Facebook’s cryptocurrency, Libra foundation.

Samsung’s crypto wallet adds support for Bitcoin.  

Limited to few devices… Currently Samsung’s flagship devices, the Galaxy S10, S10+, S10 5G, and S10e, as well as the newly launched Note 10 and Note 10+, have the cryptocurrency wallet.

Available in 7 countries… Canada, Germany, South Korea, Switzerland, Spain, the United Kingdom, and the United States.

THE TAKEAWAYS

  1. Samsung is an early believer in the cryptocurrency movement more than most companies.
  2. Samsung continues to invest in the crypto space by integrating crypto wallets to their smart phone and buying blockchain patent.
  3. Currently, Samsung wallet supports Ethereum and Ethereum Tokens (ERC-20).

Libra can not be a global coin. 

Bound to US jurisdiction… Andreas Antonopolous, a long time Bitcoin evangelist and spokesperson, said that Facebook’s cryptocurrency Libra cannot behave as a global coin because its services are limited to a few countries.

Not borderless.. Facebook’s Libra compromises on borderless transactions as they have to comply with sanctions, embargoes and currency regulations.

THE TAKEAWAYS

  1. Bitcoin > Libra. The decentralization feature to Bitcoin makes it immune to government intervention.
  2. If your going to send a subpoena to Bitcoin, where do you send it?
  3. Facebook is not permitted in a number countries where the citizens could benefit from a cryptocurrency. Countries such as Russia already said they will not accept Libra.

Argentina, South America’s second largest economy is at risk to default on debt. 

No confidence to paying back debt… The government and its subsidiaries currently have $15.9 billion in debt payments denominated in dollars and euros due in 2019, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.

Probability of default… 55% within a one-year period. Meanwhile, over a five-year period, the likelihood of default is seen at 82.5%.

Results… The currency has lost a quarter of its value so far this week, while Argentina’s main stock market has fallen nearly 35% in three days.

THE TAKEAWAYS 

  1. Currency depreciation has an impact on the local citizens and currency holders. Buying imported goods and traveling becomes more expensive.
  2. The age where people have all their wealth in a single currency is over. Investors know the importance of diversification so lets apply that logic to consumers.

“In the future, all assets will become digitized.”

Yoni Assia, 2019

Who’s up…

Finally Fidelity… Fidelity, one of the largest asset managers in the world with $2.7 trillion under management and 1.3 million trades a day is to start bitcoin trading for institutional investors “within weeks”. That’s after they carried out a survey where they found almost half of institutional investors might add bitcoin to their portfolio.

Bitcoin^2… Payments company Square reported its first-quarter earnings today, revealing strong growth in bitcoin sales through its Cash app. Square reported $65.5 million in bitcoin revenue for the first quarter of 2019.

Takeaways: Institutional money getting into the crypto space is very interesting and IMO will be a catalyst for the market to reach new highs as new money pours in by the millions. Fidelity’s survey and Square’s Cash app are both positive signs that the sentiment towards crypto heading the right direction.

Buffett Bashing Bitcoin…Again… Warren Buffett’s newest bitcoin comments seem even harsher. In an interview before Berkshire’s annual meeting, Buffett called bitcoin “a gambling device” and also pointed out that there’s been lots of fraudulent activity in the bitcoin world. “It doesn’t do anything. It just sits there. It’s like a seashell or something, and that is not an investment to me,” Buffett said.

Un-Tether… After a week of drama surrounding iFinex Inc., which operates Bitfinex and owns Tether Ltd., CoinMarketCap has decided to remove Bitfinex’s price data from its calculations.. Tether and Bitfinex confirm USDT is not fully backed by fiat, only 74% of tethers backed with cash. According to court documents from Bitfinex’s legal representation, the company needed the $900 line-of-credit to cover the loss of access to $850 million from payment processor Crypto Capital.

Takeaways: I am Buffett fan as much as the next person but if you understand Buffett investing philosophy his judgement towards Tech Stars hasn’t been spot on from missing out on Microsoft and just recently investing in Amazon and Apple. Tether has been in the spotlight before regarding shady activity and this is just another sign that has me stay far away from Tether (USDT).

Samsung Doubling Down On Crypto… South Korean technology giant Samsung has invested 2.6 million euros ($2.9 million) into crypto hardware startup Ledger. This news follows their recent announcement that the Samsung S10 will be equipped with a crypto wallet.

‘Crypto Winter’ Is Over… Bitcoin bull Tom Lee says ‘crypto winter’ is over and new all-time highs by 2020 are ‘likely’. Of the 11 signs that the crypto winter is over, Lee’s top bullish drivers for bitcoin have to do with blockchain, technical indicators and trading volumes.

Takeaways: The sentiment towards Bitcoin seems to be changing as experts have a positive outlook and is one of the best performing assets in 2019. Corporations are beginning to see the value and are investing for the next wave of innovation.

2041 Recovery… According to an analyst at UBS – a Switzerland based International bank – Bitcoin may take up to 22 years to regain its previous dizzying highs based on the historical performance of similar asset bubbles…

Sorry Son… Softbank’s founder & billionaire, Masayoshi Son, lost a reported $130 million from buying bitcoin at the $20k peak and sold in early 2018. Don’t feel too bad, his net worth is still $24 billion.

Takeaways: To quote the legendary Warren Buffett, “Be fearful when others are greedy and greedy when others are fearful.” In other words buy low and sell high – and don’t follow the herd. Buffett advice could have saved Son millions if he didn’t get caught up in the crypto craze.

Bitcoin passes $5,500… Bitcoin has secured one of its most key targets. In the last couple of hours, Bitcoin has crossed over above $5,500, breaking its most recent resistance positions of $5,400. With this achieved, the coin is currently aiming at a position above $6,000 and the new wave of green suggests that this will be done in the short-term.

Russia’s failed attempt to regulate… The proposed ‘digital assets’ law aims to “legalize ICOs” in Russia and is expected to be reviewed in May. If this law passes, then Russia’s central bank will have the sole power to decide which digital assets can be bought by unaccredited investors. To become accredited, an individual must be in possession of assets valued at over 10 million rubles ($150,000 USD).

Mexico Wont Pay For It… The US White House is reportedly planning to target remittance payments to fund the US/Mexico border wall in the form of a remittance tax. If passed, those changes may push immigrants to use alternative channels to transfer needed funds, such as Bitcoin. According to one report, 2018 saw a total of around $33 billion sent in remittances from the US to Mexico. Moreover, this is one of the largest sources of foreign capital in Mexico. Remittances from the US to Mexico are already fined at around 5%.

Takeaways: Laws that are anti-crypto will force crypto startups to move to friendlier jurisdictions such as Malta or Switzerland. Mexico and other countries that are exposed to the remittance ripoff will find alternative to sending money back home such as the use of cryptocurrency or mailing cash.

Bitcoin is the Facebook of money.. used by millions today, but over the next ten years, it’s real challenge will be to adapt and improve as it reaches billions of users.”

MOON
Who’s up…

Bitcoin’s Big Milestone… Now, bitcoin has crossed a significant adoption and usage milestone with its 400 millionth transaction since bitcoin was created in early 2009, as recorded by bitcoin’s public blockchain. Bitcoin is now averaging 350,000 transactions per day at around 15,000 transactions every hour, which is about four a second. Source

Top YouTuber Joins Blockchain…  PewDiePie, the world’s most popular YouTuber by subscriber numbers (93.7 million), has joined blockchain-based live streaming platform DLive, the YouTube on the blockchain. DLive rewards both content creators and viewers using its native token, “Lino points.” While some platforms take up to 50 percent of creators’ income, decreasing the “viability and livelihood” of the community, DLive takes no percentage of earnings and does not charge any fees to content creators, the platform said.

Takeaways: Bitcoin is gaining traction and user adoption which is a more significant measure than Bitcoin’s price. Blockchain offers a alternative platform for content creators that keeps more money in their pockets.

Galaxy Hacked… Widely touted as a game-changer for the crypto community because of its groundbreaking integration of a cryptocurrency wallet, the Samsung Galaxy S10 is apparently a lot less secure than intended. In February, Samsung announced that its latest S10 model would integrate a secure blockchain wallet to store private keys for crypto assets. But a new video posted on Imgur shows how a hacker named ‘darkshark’, a security researcher, appears to bypass the mobile device’s biometric security system to unlock the phone.

Bitcoin SV Delisted… Craig Wright, who claims to be Satoshi Nakamoto, had his attorneys serve legal papers to an anonymous Twitter user who publicly denied he created Bitcoin. In response, the crypto community rallied against Wright. The CEO of Binance threat to delist Wright’s Bitcoin SV (BSV) wasn’t empty as BSV will be delisted on Binance on April 22 and no longer able to trade.

Takeaways: Hack on the S10 is a Samsung design flaw of the phone rather than a problem with the crypto wallet. If you have Bitcoin SV on Binance you need to sell it or move it by April 22. In any case, it is advised to keep your crypto off exchanges and store on a hardware wallet such as a Ledger Nano.

Book Airbnb using Bitcoin… Cryptocurrency gift card provider Bitrefill has added a service allowing users to book Airbnb rentals with five cryptocurrencies: Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), Litecoin (LTC), Dogecoin (DOGE) and Dash (DASH). Airbnb gift cards can only be applied for reservations less than 28 nights, the firm said, while customers can purchase the cards in U.S. dollar denominations of $25, $50, and $100.

Bitcoin is back… Bitcoin price rallies to its highest level since November. Reasoning for the jump in price is not immediately clear but that doesn’t stop analysts from speculating. Some of their guesses include: unknown whale (trader with a lot of money) made a purchase, April fool’s joke that SEC was launching Bitcoin ETF, Elon Musk tweeting “Dogecoin Rulez” and algorithms triggering a buy.
