Начало истории о хакерском взломе Electronic Arts Inc. (EA)
Мартин Маршич был арестован в начале этого года за предположительное взламывание систем электронных игр Electronic Arts Inc. (EA) и кражу цифровых средств.
Маршич пытался внести залог в размере $ 750 000 в альткойнах. В конечном итоге он был арестован после того, как официальные лица заявили, что это вопрос ответственности.
Платить залог с помощью криптовалют?
Неудачная попытка использовать альткоины показывает, насколько сложно использовать цифровые валюты в реальном мире. 25-летний Маршич, проживающий в Италии был обвинен Министерством юстиции США (DOJ) и Федеральным бюро расследований(ФБР) в проникновении в системы EA.
После попытки принятия мер по созданию криптовалютного кошелька для облегчения передачи денег, правительство отклонили запрос, заявив, что они не могут взять цифровые монеты в качестве залога.
Вместо этого власти предложили Маршичу продать свою криптовалюту за 750 000 долларов, и заплатить залог. Но продать такой большой объем цифровой валюты, которую имеет Марсич совсем непросто.
В итоге, прокуроры и защита согласились только с тем, что Маршичу будет разрешено продавать частями его криптовалюту для обеспечения его залога.

Ethereum (ETH) Price Analysis: On The Lookout For A Breakout After the strong moves in the previous month, Ethereum is now consolidating inside a symmetrical triangle pattern as bulls and bears wait for catalysts. Price is approaching the peak of the formation so a breakout might be due soon.
The 100 SMA is above the longer-term 200 SMA to hint that the path of least resistance is to the upside. In other words, an upside break might be more likely to happen than a downside break. The chart pattern is around $80 tall so the resulting move could be of the same size.
RSI appears to be slowly making its way down, indicating that sellers have the upper hand. This could lead to a break below the $290 triangle bottom, which is also around the 200 SMA dynamic inflection point. Stochastic was on its way up to show the presence of buying pressure but seems to be turning down also.
Ethereum has been struggling to hold its ground since breaking below the $300 key psychological level. Buyers would need to be strong enough to push price past this level to draw more bullish energy and sustain any rallies.
The recent drop is being pinned on the cashing of ICOs as most tokens chalk up consecutive declines. And since ERC-20 tokens were mostly used for the creation of ICOs for funding purposes, the profit-taking activity has consequently led to selling of Ethereum.
A pickup in cryptocurrency prices could then be needed to restore demand for Ethereum, as well as improvement in risk taking. Traders are keeping tabs on Turkey and potential contagion, as this might also lift demand for alternative assets like digital currencies. This has been the case when capital controls were imposed on Greece a few years back as people looked for a better store of value or medium of exchange than a rapidly dropping currency.

#Tokens Record Losses as #Major#Cryptos Struggle; #Bitcoin Stable at $6,500
Usually, stability in the Bitcoin #price leads to an increase in the momentum of tokens. On August 21, tokens recorded the largest losses in the global crypto market.
In the past 24 hours, tokens such as #Tezos, Kin, Ark, #Basic Attention Token (BAT), and Aelf (ELF) declined by 5 to 15 percent against both the #US#dollar and Bitcoin, demonstrating high volatility.
Meanwhile, Bitcoin recorded its 14-month low monthly volatility, showing stability in the lower price range of $6,500. The dominant cryptocurrency recorded a slight gain of 0.2 percent as other major cryptocurrencies like Ethereum’s Ether, Bitcoin Cash, Ripple, and EOS recorded losses.
The token market has tended to follow the price trend of Ethereum, Ripple, and EOS in the past few weeks, and the 5 percent decline in the price of EOS was reflected by the struggle of tokens throughout the past 48 hours.
On August 18, tokens seemed to be recovering, as Ontology, VeChain, Aelf, ICON, and other large market cap tokens recorded 30 to 70 percent gains against the US dollar. However, in the past two days, many of the tokens have deleted their gains against Bitcoin, showing a lack of momentum and volume.
Was $5,800 the Bottom?
In previous reports, stability is the most important element in the price trend of Bitcoin that could lead and fuel the next mid-term rally in the global crypto market.
Initially, analysts described the recovery of Bitcoin from $5,800 to $6,300 as a short-term corrective rally initiated by traders due to massive oversold conditions recorded by the Bitcoin exchange market. But, BTC has continued to show stability in the $6,500 range since August 17, remaining in the $6,300 to $6,600.
Bitcoin has tested the $6,000 support level three times in the past eight months but each time corrective rally was initiated, the price of Bitcoin almost immediately surged to resistance levels in the $7,000 and $8,000 region. This week’s corrective rally has seen BTC stabilizing in the mid-$6,000 range, unable to initiate large movements.

150-Year-Old MetLife Pilots #Diabetes Insurance Payments on a #Blockchain in #Singapore#MetLife has started tests on an automated insurance solution that will see enrolled pregnant women in Singapore get an automatic payout in case they are diagnosed with gestational diabetes.
Developed by LumenLab, the innovation center of MetLife Asia, the experimental product known as ‘Vitana’ will make it unnecessary for enrollees of the insurance cover to file a claim. According to MetLife, this is the world’s first automated insurance solution that employs blockchain technology in a pilot phase. Additionally, Vitana is the first insurance product focusing on gestational diabetes in Singapore where 20% of expectant mothers suffer from the condition. “In today’s world, people expect experiences to be simple, automated, and digital,” the CEO of LumenLab and the chief innovation officer of MetLife Asia, Zia Zaman, said in a statement. “We saw an opportunity to test how blockchain can make insurance more seamless and we’ve partnered with some of the best companies in their fields to create a blueprint to launch new parametric insurance products in the future.” Fast and Convenient
With Vitana the electronic medical records of customers are securely connected via a mobile device before an insurance policy is issued within minutes. All that pregnant women in the first six months of the pregnancy need to do is download a mobile app. During the pilot phase, the maximum insurance coverage offered is SGD 2,500 (approximately 1,830). Vitana was developed within the regulatory sandbox of Monetary Authority of Singapore.
Some of the firms that partnered with LumenLabs to develop Vitana included electronic medical records provider Vault Dragon, blockchain tech firm Cognizant and reinsurer SwissRe. Additionally, LumenLab is also partnering with the Singapore Medial Group Women’s Health besides other clinics.

Over #Bitcoin Mining is a Red Herring: #Energy Researcher
The amount of electricity consumed by bitcoin mining is not the global environmental crisis it is often portrayed to be. This is the professional assessment of Dr. Katrina Kelly-Pitou, a research associate in electrical and #computer engineering at the #University of #Pittsburgh. ‘New #Technologies Are Energy Intensive’
Writing in an article penned for non-profit academic media outlet The Conversation, Kelly-Pitou criticizes the characterization of bitcoin mining’s energy consumption as some sort of fatal design flaw, stating that the general narrative around cryptocurrency as an environmental risk is a gross oversimplification that encourages the spread of factual inaccuracies as received wisdom.
Explaining why she thinks of the so-called “bitcoin energy crisis” as a red herring, she says: “I am a researcher who studies clean energy technology, specifically the transition toward decarbonized energy systems…New technologies – such as data centers, computers and before them trains, planes and automobiles – are often energy-intensive. Over time, all of these have become more efficient, a natural progression of any technology: Saving energy equates to saving costs.” At a time when a lot of the conversation around the future of bitcoin mining is dominated by statistics such as the fact that it currently consumes almost as much electricity as the Republic of Ireland, Kelly-Pitou believes that to restrict the conversation to the energy consumption of bitcoin mining alone is to miss a larger truth about energy and environmental concerns.
In her opinion, the use of renewable energy allows for increased power consumption for any purpose including bitcoin mining without having any negative environmental impact. The conversation should instead, she says, be centered around where the electricity used to power cryptocurrency mining comes from and how it is generated.
Making her point further, she compares bitcoin mining’s annual power usage of 30 terrawatts to that of the global banking industry, estimated at an average of 100 #terrawatts. #bitcoinnews#bitcoininfo

#Bitcoin#Price Technical #Analysis: #BTC#USD Capped by Strong Resistance
Bitcoin price today tumbled 2 percent against the dollar, #confirming a weak push by bulls in the current bearish bias.
The BTC/USD continued to extend its prevailing upside momentum, breaking above 6500-fiat to establish 6620-fiat as its new intraday peak level. However, the absence of enough bullish sentiment around the peak area, also visible during the August 15th pullback action, reversed the upsides. The pair dropped as much 4.5 percent, as a result, and is now attempting what looks like a weak bounce back.
We also had to exit our long position on a small loss when BTC/USD just fell shy to test 6650 as our primary upside. Our stops below the entry position protected us from additional risks. In the process of the latest bearish correction, we also noticed price breaking below the ascending wedge. Let’s have a look at the hourly BitFinex chart below to further understand the market’s mood.
The BTC/USD has broken out of the rising wedge pattern, but its downside is capped by strong bull supports near 6348-fiat and 6255-fiat. As for now, we are close to forming a near-term Head and Shoulder pattern, with the head near 6620-fiat and shoulder near 6255-fiat. The left shoulder of current H&S is also the right shoulder of the inverse H&S, which makes it a crucial level to watch for as the price attempts another downside.
Technically, we are in a near-term bearish bias, for the BTC/USD has pair has now slipped under its 100H moving average and a further gravity could move the pair below 200H MA as well. The RSI and Stochastic are now oversold and should stay the same until BTC/USD attempts a decent bounce back from any of the above-mentioned support levels.
BTC/USD Intraday Analysis
As far as our intraday analysis is concerned, we are now considering it to stop putting our long position above 6600-fiat. Anything above 6500-fiat at this point of time looks uncertain due to weak bullish attempts. Moving on, the range we are watching for today is defined by 6348-fiat as interim support and 6500-fiat as interim resistance.

Square’s Cash App now has a cumulative total download of 33.5 million, which exceeds Venmo’s 32.9 million for the first time, after a successful July where it grew three times faster than Venmo. Both companies had made their peer-to-peer platforms a priority, introducing new features in a bid to increase the user base and monetize it.
What ultimately led to their userbase growth was when CEO Jack Dorsey announced that Square would be offering Bitcoin purchasing and selling on the Cash App. The Cash app recently rolled out Bitcoin trading to all 50 U.S. states. In a tweet shared on Aug. 13, the company said users can now use the app to buy and sell bitcoin throughout the country.
Jack Dorsey also believes that the internet will adopt a “single currency” within a decade and that this currency “will be bitcoin.” —— 🤔Do you think Bitcoin will be the internet's biggest currency? 🗣Let us know in a few words! —— 😎Follow @sharecrypto ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ #venmo#cashapp#bitcoin#satoshi#zcash#usd#altcoin#daytrading#bitcoinprice#bitcoinnews#iota#litecoin#bitcoins#ethereum#daytrading#daytrader#mining#ripple#dash#stocks#trading#invest#blockchain#money#markets
