🇰🇷 The past week of confusion and friction over cryptocurrency regulation in South Korea continues to unfold as accusations surface of government officials practicing insider trading, local news source Chosun reports.

According to the local reports on Thursday, Jan. 18, some government officials from the Financial Supervisory Service, who were aware of forthcoming announcements about either a full ban or significant restrictions on trading, bought and sold cryptocurrency just before that information went public.

A FSS official stated:
🇰🇷 The past week of confusion and friction over cryptocurrency regulation in South Korea continues to unfold as accusations surface of government officials practicing insider trading, local news source Chosun reports. According to the local reports on Thursday, Jan. 18, some government officials from the Financial Supervisory Service, who were aware of forthcoming announcements about either a full ban or significant restrictions on trading, bought and sold cryptocurrency just before that information went public. A FSS official stated: "There is no code of ethics and no code of conduct for virtual currency investment in FSS regulations, so it's difficult to say about punishment at this stage." Chosun also points out that the officials could be accused not of insider trading, but more generally of "The misuse of internal information." An official from South Korea's Financial Supervisory Service has reportedly said that an investigation is underway into claimed insider trading within his organization. The alleged insider trading is said to have occurred prior to Korean regulators announcing new rules on cryptocurrency trading in the country - a move that has been, at least in part, linked to the recent slump in prices across the crypto markets. • • • #trading #asia #internet #investing #bitcoin #cryptocurrency #korea #southkorea #crypto #cryptocurrencies #photo #japan #bitcoinmining #cyber #ethereum #government #blockchain #newyork #exchange

Japan's Largest Bank will be Launching its own Cryptocurrency Exchange Since Bitcoin trading becomes the new mainstream in Japan, the top financial firms are stepping in to offer services to preserve their market share.

MUFG, the largest bank in Japan, has planned to introduce its own exchange, a secured cryptocurrency, and bitcoin separated accounts which can be used by clients of other exchanges.

One interesting application is for it to be used in trading pairs on non-fiat exchanges instead of USTD, backed by the largest bank in Japan instead of Tether.

Bitcoin Segregated Accounts The bank is constantly working on another service for Japanese cryptocurrency traders, MUFJ Trust - which keeps client holdings in accounts and can link to exchanges but without even sending the money to their control.

The amount it can change has been increasing recently to a point where it can be significantly different."

⚒ BTC contains the 21 mln cap built into its protocol by Satoshi Nakamoto, first mentioned in their 2008 White Paper, as a way to introduce digital scarcity to cryptocurrency. With such a cap in place, the more bitcoins are mined, the more scarcity is produced on the market.

Scarcity arguably creates demand, which in turns makes the coins more valuable. Once 21 million bitcoins have been mined, it will become even harder to obtain them, also potentially making each coin more valuable.

Miners currently receive a 12.5 BTC reward for every block that they mine, but Nakamoto’s protocol also requires that the mining reward is halved every 210,000 blocks, or approximately four years. The next miner halving will take place within two years, approximately in early June 2020 depending on hashrate, bringing the rewards down to 6.25 BTC per mined block. •

🚀 NEO PRICE SURPASSES $170 WITH RELATIVE EASE

With US$496.58 million in 24-hour trading volume, NEO still isn't generating the volume that most other top altcoins are capable of.

Most of NEO's recent trading volume has come courtesy of its Bitcoin pairs.

The first fiat currency pair on the list of markets is Bitfinex's USD market, which has brought in another US$43.67 million over the past 24 hours.

For now, there is enough momentum in place to keep the NEO train going for a few more hours, but things work in mysterious ways when it comes to cryptocurrency. •

The perpetrators of last year's WannaCry ransomeware attack which has been widely attributed to North Korea used cryptocurrencies, says cyberthreat intelligence company Recorded Future. A report released last summer by cybersecurity firm FireEye also found evidence of "state-sponsored actors" from North Korea trying to steal bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies "as a means of evading sanctions and obtaining hard currencies to fund the regime." If a cryptocurrency deal involving a sanctioned company involves computer servers on American soil, for example, Fishman said regulators could potentially deem that a U.S.• • • • • #internet #investing #bitcoin #cryptocurrency #crypto #cryptocurrencies #facebook #venezuela #bitcoinmining #cyber #russia #mining #ethereum #billionaire #litecoin #blockchain #newyork #satoshi #cash #northkorea

🇰🇷 The results of two government surveys shows support exceeding 100,000 people for halting the restrictions on trading, while more than 30,000 want to see the justice minister and finance minister fired for "market manipulation." Tax obligations, a single exchange account per citizen and bans on ICOs and Bitcoin futures have combined to produce an overall hostile environment in what was once the biggest Bitcoin trading market in the world. JTBC: South Korean gov't "shocked" at the number of citizens requesting the removal of Justice Minister and Finance Minister for market manipulation. When Justice Minister Park Sang-ki originally hinted at "preparing to enact a special law to ban virtual currency trading through the exchange and to close the exchange," Bitcoin reacted sharply, dropping by some $3500 over the past week. • • • • • #asia #hodl #tech #bitcoin #cryptocurrency #korea #nature #southkorea #ico #crypto #petition #photooftheday #ethereum #picoftheday #newyork #blockchain #ban #beautiful #cryptonews #travel #coins #trump

🇺🇸 The U.S. Marshals Service will auction off 3,813 bitcoins valued at about $52 million that were seized in connection with a number of high-profile federal, state and local cases including drug busts and money-laundering schemes.

The sale represents a rare opportunity for investors to purchase a large amount of bitcoin outside of online exchanges, though at much higher prices than at past sales.

The last auction took place in August 2016, when the agency offered 2,700 bitcoins from 12 cases.

The largest amount of bitcoins the agency ever auctioned off was 50,000 coins in December 2014.

The agency never discloses the price at which winners get their bitcoins. •

Returns since ICO (USD): +1,023% 👀

Progress: Kin IСO was rated as low risky and its hype level seems high. The Kin ecosystem seems to be another promising approach to so-called “conversational commerce,” which is still only a concept for almost every messenger except WeChat.

For the ICO market though Kin might  be one of the most viable projects as it has a tangible product and 300 mln active users per month. It is still a question how the average Kik user will liquidate their Kin. Also, there is no news about Kin’s integration with Kik which was scheduled for last quarter of 2017.

Kin’s plan to move from Ethereum also doesn’t seem to be straightforward as it was faced with investor complaints. Despite Kik’s advantages over the very similar Status platform, Kin tokens demonstrate one and a half the return, which is about +1,023 percent since the ICO.•

One of bitcoin's biggest mining farm has been working on blockchain analysis to link addresses with individuals by employing both blockchain data and other sources.
One of bitcoin's biggest mining farm has been working on blockchain analysis to link addresses with individuals by employing both blockchain data and other sources. "Bitcoin address clustering is a process that exposes bitcoin users by determining which addresses belong to a single user through an analysis of Blockchain data. The act of clustering groups those addresses together, enabling investigators to link them to a single entity," the miner says. Some 95 million addresses were identified to belong to 14 million individuals or entities covering 45 million transactions out of 240 million total bitcoin transactions since the genesis block to March 2017. "Currently, bitcoin users can have multiple addresses, making it easier to conceal identities and commit crimes on the Blockchain. The ability to link related addresses, called 'clustering,' is an important new tool that helps law enforcement agencies conduct criminal investigations," said Valery Vavilov, CEO of The Bitfury Group. • • • • #btc #internet #technology #ethereum #bitcoin #cryptocurrency #nyc #monero #litecoin #blockchain #crypto #privacy #california

"Telegram is doing an initial coin offering in the fourth quarter." She sent me the link to some random website I've never heard of in Russian. Telegram would use the money to create a blockchain payments system called the Telegram Open Network, or TON. Last month, a Russian Youtube channel called DeCenter ran a video that looked like it came from Telegram, complete with the paper airplane logo. Durov created Telegram as a sort of spin-off from his Russian social media site VKontakte, known simply as VK. He and other founders caught the ire of the Kremlin for advertising protests organized by Vladimir Putin gadfly Alexey Navalny on VK. He has lived here and there and everywhere, except in Russia, since 2014. Telegram's corporate offices are in Dubai, a favorite warm weather destination for Russian tourists. "Some terms may stop us from investing, but we are sure Telegram will be successful at it and you could see a return of more than five times the ICO price." • • • #app #internet #technology #investing #bitcoin #cryptocurrency #ton #nyc #iphone #chat #crypto #russia #ethereum #telegram #litecoin #blockchain #bitcoinuk #stocks

📷 Eastman Kodak's stock price more than doubled on Tuesday after the venerable imaging company said it's entering the digital currency business. "For many in the tech industry, 'blockchain' and 'cryptocurrency' are hot buzzwords, but for photographers who've long struggled to assert control over their work and how it's used, these buzzwords are the keys to solving what felt like an unsolvable problem," Kodak CEO Jeff Clarke said in a statement. "Kodak has always sought to democratize photography and make licensing fair to artists. These technologies give the photography community an innovative and easy way to do just that." Rochester, New York-based Kodak was founded in 1880 and traces its roots to the early days of film-based photography. The new services will be launched via an initial coin offering, which many cryptocurrency startups are using to raise funds, on Jan. 31. As cryptocurrency prices have surged, other companies have hopped on the bandwagon. In December, the Securities and Exchange Commission warned investors to exercise caution before buying cryptocurrencies or participating in ICOs.. • • • • #google #app #internet #investing #technology #bitcoin #cryptocurrency #nyc #crypto #facebook #wallstreet #kodak #photography #ethereum #litecoin #blockchain #bitcoinuk #iphonex #ripple #xrp #kodakcoin #stocks

J.P. Morgan Chase Chairman and CEO Jamie Dimon is backpedaling a bit on his earlier criticisms on cryptocurrencies. "The blockchain is real," Dimon added in the interview. It is noteworthy how the outspoken CEO repeated his positive stance on the technology backing bitcoin, the so-called blockchain. Blockchain technology eliminates the need for a third party intermediary by creating a permanent, open record of all transactions on a network. J.P. Morgan Chase announced in October the launch of a blockchain-based system that will "Significantly reduce" the number of parties needed to verify global payments, reducing transaction times "From weeks to hours."

📲 Ripple is available on both iOS and Android, starting today! A team of former Tinder employees, led by Tinder's original CTO Ryan Ogle, are today launching a new app aimed at professional networking. He's careful to clarify that Ripple, isn't just a "Tinder for business networking." Rather it takes some of the psychological principles that helped Tinder become a top app in its own market, and has repurposed those for use in professional networking. IAC's Match Group, which owns Tinder and a number of other dating apps, came to an agreement with Tinder to spin off Ripple App Corp. into a separate company and fund it. In addition to Ogle, other co-founders include Tinder's first Android developer Paul Cafardo and Tinder lead designer Gareth Johnson. Despite Ogle's claims that Ripple isn't just a biz-flavored Tinder, using Ripple feels very familiar. • • • • #google #app #internet #investing #bitcoin #cryptocurrency #iphone #tinder #crypto #microsoft #facebook #bitcoinmining #bitcoins #linkedin #ethereum #mining #virtual #litecoin #blockchain #bitcoinuk #ripple #xrp

{IMPORTANT INFO - U.S.A Tax Info 🇺🇸 Tag Friends! Please do yourself a favor and hire a professional to better explain!} - - If you held the position for one year or less, it is a short-term capital gain which is taxed at your ordinary income tax rate.

If you mined $7,000 worth of ETH in 2017, you must report $7,000 of income on your 2017 tax return.

A Form 8938 must be filed if you held more than $75,000 on an exchange based outside of the US at any point during the tax year, or more than $50,000 on the last day of the tax year.

For example, you bought 1 ETH for $300 in June of 2017. In December of 2017, you sold that 1 ETH for $800. Your realized gain would be $800 - $300 = $500. Since you held it for one year or less, the $500 would be a short-term capital gain taxed at your ordinary income tax rate.

What is the tax rate on my capital gains? If long-term, the tax rate is 0%, 15%, or 20%, depending on your ordinary income tax bracket.

What are the tax implications of gifting cryptocurrency? Small gifts of cryptocurrency do not have a tax implication for the gift giver or for the recipient. •

At the moment the bitcoin market already faces a significant supply and demand imbalance despite the high price. "There's limited supply because, aside the fact that there will only ever be 21 million Bitcoins in circulation, most of the holders of Bitcoin are long terms holders. The demand on the other hand keeps soaring," he explained. Bitcoin isn't the only investment-worthy “coin” on the market. • • • #tech #investing #bitcoin #cryptocurrency #forex #college #crypto #money #btc #ethereum #creditcard #bitcoinnews #millenials #blockchain #cryptonews #stocks

A great many of Visa's cryptocurrency debit cards have ceased working today as the company ended its relationship with a debit card provider called WaveCrest.

A Visa representative has told TNW:
A great many of Visa's cryptocurrency debit cards have ceased working today as the company ended its relationship with a debit card provider called WaveCrest. A Visa representative has told TNW: "We can confirm that WaveCrest's Visa membership is being terminated due to continued non-compliance with our operating rules. All of WaveCrest's Visa card programmes will be closed as a result. Visa has other approved card programmes that use fiat funds converted from cryptocurrency in a number of jurisdictions. The termination of WaveCrest's Visa membership does not affect these other products." The news first broke via Twitter, with a number of companies linked to WaveCrest making public apologies. The companies affected include Bitwala, Cryptopay, Wirex, and TenX. These services allow individuals to spend cryptocurrencies - predominantly Bitcoin - in traditional brick-and-mortar establishments through a debit card issued by one of the major providers, Visa and MasterCard. The cards allow users to spend cryptocurrencies, mainly Bitcoin, at traditional brick-and-mortar retailers. • • • • #money #tech #btc #ethereum #bitcoin #cryptocurrency #creditcard #visa #bitcoinnews #forex #blockchain #crypto #bitcoinmining #stocks

The surge in dogecoin's price drove its market valuation to $1.17bn earlier today - trading at $0.010360 per token, according to CoinMarketCap.

Despite dogecoin's meteoric rise ,the coin's creator Jackson Palmer, who left the team in 2015, has expressed concern about market excess.
The total value of cryptocurrencies is over $750 billion, according to CoinMarketCap, and bitcoin dominates nearly 40 percent of that market. •
