Bitcoin Hits New Lows as Price Crashes Below $5,000

Start of a new week turned out be far from bright for the flagship cryptocurrency, as the gradual slide turned into a free-fall. At approximately 16:30 UTC on Monday, Nov. 19, for the first time in 2018, the price of Bitcoin fell below $5,000 on several exchanges, including Bitstamp and Coinbase. On Bitstamp, the BTC/USD fell to $4,959 before bouncing back above the $5,000 threshold, while on Coinbase it fell even lower, down to $4,950. This took Bitcoin to a 13-month low with the market cap reducing to just $89 billion. Things got worse at around 19:15 UTC, when the price of Bitcoin fell below $4900 on both Bitstamp and Coinbase. At Bitfinex, where BTC has been trading at a $100 – $150 premium for the past several weeks, the price is so far staying above the psychological level of $5,000, however it too seems to be just a matter of time before this support is broken. Based on the current conditions of the market, a further drop below the $5,000 mark looks rather likely. The reasons

Erik Voorhees and Salt Lending Investigated by SEC – Report

Bitcoin loans startup Salt Lending and its former CEO, Erik Voorhees, are said to be under investigation by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). As reported by The Wall Street Journal, “people familiar with the probe” are saying that Salt was subpoenaed by SEC in February seeking information on its $50 million initial coin offering (ICO) held in late 2017. Apparently under investigation is whether Salt’s crypto fundraising effort was in fact a securities offering that should have been registered with the regulator, the WSJ says, as well as how tokens were distributed to “insiders” and how the sale proceeds were spent. Erik Voorhees was charged by the SEC in 2014 for securities violations that ultimately saw him banned from making a Bitcoin security offering for the following five years. He was also fined $50,000. That case arose from the SEC’s view that Voorhees had publicly offered securities without registering with the federal government related to the solicitation of

The other implementation, dubbed Bitcoin “Satoshi’s Vision” (Bitcoin SV), rejects these changes to instead restore retired code from the original Bitcoin protocol and increases the block size from 32 MB to 128 MB.

Swiss Firm Obtains Sharia Compliance Certificate for Ethereum-based Stablecoin

X8 AG, a Swiss fintech company has received Islamic finance certification for its stablecoin built on the Ethereum blockchain protocol. As reported by Reuters, the firm was certified by the Shariyah Review Bureau (SRB), an Islamic advisory firm licensed by Bahrain’s central bank.

SEC Cyber Security Chief Makes Warning to Decentralized Cryptocurrency Exchanges

Using any blockchain to create an exchange without central operations doesn’t remove the original creator’s responsibility. This was the warning Robert Cohen, the chief of the SEC’s newly created cyber unit, made in the wake of the charges the U.S. securities regulator had filed against Zachary Coburn, the founder of EtherDelta, an Ethereum-based decentralized exchange. While traditional, centralized exchanges like Coinbase, are run by individuals, decentralized exchanges are run by a self-executing code. Rather than connecting buyers with sellers, these exchanges don’t act as intermediaries using smart contracts to connect people directly. However, as Robert Cohen emphasized, the individuals who create those codes are still responsible for them. “The focus is not on the label you put on something or the technology you’re using,” he told The Forbes. “The focus is on the function, and what the platform is doing. Whether it’s decentralized or not, whether it’s on a smart contract or not,

SEC Charges EtherDelta’s Founder with Operating an Unregistered Exchange

The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has charged Zachary Coburn, the founder of crypto token trading platform EtherDelta, with operating an unregistered securities exchange. SEC Charges EtherDelta Founder With Operating an Unregistered Exchange — SEC_News (@SEC_News) 8 November 2018 The agency identified the decentralized exchange EtherDelta as an “online platform for secondary market trading of ERC20 tokens.” The SEC added that the decentralized exchange was operating as an unregistered exchange due to Mr. Coburn’s actions. Through a combined use of an order book and smart contracts, EtherDelta connects buyers and sellers through its decentralized marketplace platform. The exchange’s smart contracts validate the order messages, confirm the terms and conditions of orders placed by the users, execute paired orders, as well as updates its ledger to reflect a trade. EtherDelta users conducted more than 3.6 million trades over an 18-month period “for
