How US authorities forgot to seize $ 400,000 in fake Bitcoin linked to Silk Road

Shitforks hang out in the wild – Despite its closure by the authorities in 2013, the Silk Road black market is still talking about it. It turned out today that, on the wallets seized since, many coins from Bitcoin forks (BTC) have not (yet?) Been recovered by the police.

Over $ 1 billion worth of BTC straight from 2013

The taking of Silk Road offline and the arrest of its founder, Ross Ulbricht , in 2013 were also an opportunity to freeze Bitcoin wallets belonging to this darknet black market.

These addresses thus remained frozen long before the king of cryptos knew any direct fork – Litecoin and Dogecoin, which date from this time, are indeed separate blockchains , not forks of BTC.

The blockchain transaction analysis company Coinfirm thus noticed that some of the (too) many Bitcoin forks had not been recovered by the American authorities.

The latter announced that they had seized 69,370 bitcoins , or approximately $ 1.3 billion , from an anonymous person who allegedly hacked wallets from the famous black market.

Even though the authorities have obviously thought about recovering the most famous forks , like Bitcoin Cash (BCH) and even BSV , others have been left out.

400,000 dollars in forgotten shitforks

According to Coinfirm, the hacker – who would not have been worried in exchange for his collaboration – would have, on his address, still at least $ 400,000 in cryptocurrency from forks. It would be:

693,701 Bitcoin Diamond (BCD), valued at $ 310,000;
69,370 Super Bitcoin (SBT), valued at approximately $ 66,000;
69,370 Bitcoin Private (BTCP), or nearly $ 11,000.
Thus, anyone who has access to the private keys of the hacker’s wallet can still have these untapped funds.

Toppkryptoanalytiker säger att två lite kända Altcoins erbjuder massiva möjligheter till inträde, beskriver vad som är nästa för Bitcoin och Ethereum

Den noga följda kryptostrategen och näringsidkaren Michaël van de Poppe avslöjar två relativt okända altcoins som erbjuder massiva inträdemöjligheter.

I en ny tweet berättar Van de Poppe för sina 85 000 följare

I en ny tweet berättar Van de Poppe för sina 85 000 följare att han håller koll på Ocean Protocol (OCEAN), som är en plattform som gör det möjligt för företag att sälja sina data och köpa data på en säker och säker marknad. Enligt analytikern kan handlare vänta på att OCEAN ska sjunka över 37% mot Bitcoin (BTC) innan de gör en post.

”Diskuterade att 3 900 (satoshis) nivå är en mycket viktig nivå att bryta. Misslyckades. Lägre toppar, lägre nedre nivåer. Tittar på support på 2500 och 1900 (satoshis) för massiva bidrag. Allt går tillbaka helt. ”

Van de Poppe tittar också på Tomochain (TOMO), ett projekt som syftar till att förbättra skalbarhetsfrågorna som jagar många blockkedjor. Kryptostrategen säger att TOMO erbjuder en fantastisk möjlighet mot BTC eftersom den handlar nära historiskt stöd på 0,000034.

När det gäller paret TOMO / USDT (Tether) förväntar sig Van de Poppe att det kommer att hugga botten och bygga en ny bas på väg till en ny rekordhög nivå före juni 2021.

”Troligtvis kommer vi att hitta motståndet runt $ 0,80 så att vi närmar oss. Troligtvis kommer vi att få något så här: antingen går vi till $ 0,48 igen eller $ 0,59. Dessa två nivåer kommer jag att leta efter ackumulering för en svinghandel …

Målzoner om vi får upp det nya rallyet och den nya impulsvågen, helt klart om en krona ($ 1,00), ca $ 1,60, och du kan använda Fibonacci 1618 förlängningsverktyg genom vilket du kan bestämma mål till $ 2,50. ”

Medan näringsidkaren väntar på korrigeringar

Medan näringsidkaren väntar på korrigeringar i OCEAN och TOMO är han hausse på den totala altcoin-marknaden.

När det gäller Bitcoin förväntar sig Van de Poppe en djup korrigering eftersom den största kryptovalutan fortfarande är mitt i ett historiskt rally.

„Jag tror att vi kommer att sjunka först till 16 000 dollar. Ha några avståndsbundna rörelser genom vilka altcoins kommer att klara sig relativt bra. Sedan ytterligare en sista nedgång mot $ 14 000 och därifrån kommer vi att fortsätta mala. ”

Med tanke på Ethereum (ETH) kartlägger Van de Poppe det ledande smarta kontraktets plattformsuppgång de närmaste månaderna. Han förutspår att ETH kommer att ha en sista etapp ner till cirka $ 400 innan den skjuts upp till $ 1000 i oktober 2021.

 

BTC market cap could overtake Canadian dollar

Bitcoin market capitalization is overtaking the money bases of many countries. The Canadian dollar is arguably next.

When Bitcoin Storm broke the $ 14,000 mark, its market capitalization surged above the monetary base of the Russian ruble .

This includes both physical currency and bank reserves, which are usually held by a country’s central banks

The above chart may seem complicated at first, but it only compares gold, silver, bitcoin and the rest of the global money bases. We can see that the US is 4.9 trillion. Holding US dollars in physical notes, coins and bank deposits at the US Federal Reserve. If we divide that number by the current 18.5 million BTC, we get to the above $ 263,000.

For Bitcoin’s market capitalization to match the US monetary base, the price would have to be above $ 263,000. At first glance, that seems far-fetched. But BTC has already overshadowed several currencies, such as the Brazilian real, the Swedish krona and the South Korean won.

For a cryptocurrency that’s only 11 years old, that’s no mean feat. According to Fernando Ulrich, the economist behind Crypto Voices, the 30 largest countries cover 95 percent of GDP with their base funds. In addition to the euro being the currency of many countries, some of the 113 leading countries have pegged their currencies to the US dollar.

The researchers at Crypto Voices therefore came to the conclusion:

„So far, the money monopoly ‚works‘ for the central banks and their governments. It is practically free: Fiat has proven to be almost ‚independent‘ of the gold market value.“
The researchers explained:

„As for #Bitcoin, if it gets big enough to appear on this chart and / or be held by central banks, then and only then will we get an idea of ​​what Bitcoin ‚costs‘ central banks“.
Some people might interpret the analysis as pessimistic, but basically it’s just the opposite.

The researchers at Crypto Voices conclude that central banks and governments have previously been able to print money regardless of their gold holdings. So you don’t have to look for a new „gold standard“ or something similar anytime soon.

According to the researchers, inflation is gradually depreciating fiat currencies. This caused Bitcoin to overtake a number of currencies as they were overprinted. In fact, 2020 saw the largest global monetary expansion ever.

31,5 mln $ Bitcoin Satoshi-Era może być na sprzedaż

Bitcoin z ery Satoshi został skonsolidowany w dwa portfele zbiorcze posiadające łącznie 2050 BTC o wartości 31,5 miliona dolarów.

Konsolidacja może być prekursorem sprzedaży tych sprzed dziesięcioleci monet na rynku

Masowa sprzedaż 2050 BTC i rosnące odpływy górników na giełdy mogą spowodować znaczny spadek ceny bitcoinów.

Trust Project to międzynarodowe konsorcjum organizacji informacyjnych budujących standardy przejrzystości.

Kilka skonsolidowanych masowych kwot Bitcoin Gemini o wartości 31,5 miliona dolarów, nietkniętych przez dziesięć lat, może wkrótce zostać sprzedanych na rynku w miarę kontynuacji obecnych wzrostów cen.

Ruchy BTC z ery Satoshi często przyciągają znaczną uwagę w przestrzeni kryptowalut. Zwykle koncentruje się na określeniu, czy monety są częścią skrytki wydobywanej przez twórcę Bitcoina według „ wzoru Patoshi ”.

2050 BTC wkrótce trafi na rynek?

Tweetując 9 listopada, analityk Bitcoin @murphsicles ujawnił konsolidację 1000 BTC (~ 15,5 miliona USD) z adresów, na których znajdują się nagrody blokowe sprzed dekady. Dane z blockchain.com pokazują zestawienie 50 BTC w nagrodach za monety z 20 różnych adresów.

Przed pierwszym halvingiem bitcoina w 2012 roku górnicy zarobili 50 BTC w nagrodę za pomyślne wydobycie bloku transakcji.

Jak widać na poniższym obrazku, podmiot odpowiedzialny za roll-up podzielił również 1000 BTC na natywne adresy bech32 SegWit.

Bitcoin w ruchu ery Satoshi?

Roll-up o 1000 BTC to drugi taki ruch w mniej niż tydzień. Wcześniej w listopadzie kolejna partia nagród z bazy monet z ery Satoshi z 21 adresów została również przeniesiona do skonsolidowanego skrytki o wartości 1050 BTC (~ 16 milionów USD).

Skarb 1050 BTC ma wyjątkową jakość adresu ze wzoru Patoshi. Równie istotny jest fakt, że ten sam adres pojawia się również w 1,1 mln dokumentów BTC Tulip Trust.

Rzeczywiście, rok 2020 był świadkiem wielu ruchów dużych kwot bitcoinów. Przestrzeń kryptowalut była pełna spekulacji, gdy ponad 1 miliard dolarów w BTC przeniosło się w noc wyborów w USA. Jak się okazało, Departament Sprawiedliwości Stanów Zjednoczonych (DoJ) objął 69 369 BTC przechowywanych w portfelu z powiązaniami z Silk Road.

Trader spoke about negative scenario for bitcoin price

Financial market forecasts are the private opinion of their authors. The current analysis does not constitute a trading guide. ForkLog does not assume any responsibility for the results that may arise from the use of the trading advice provided in the reviews.

The current market situation is described by trader Ilya Meshcheryakov.

The positive results of last week were almost completely leveled out today. Bitcoin managed to set a new global maximum from January 2018 at $ 14,100, but immediately followed a significant setback and at the time of writing the review the crypt currency is traded near $ 13,400.

Let us start with the technical picture – an unsuccessful attempt to break through the resistance of $13,860 could mean that there is no short-term interest in going beyond the current sideways movement.

I have already written in previous reviews that we should not wait for a sharp collapse in the drawdown scenario, as there are large positions that can only be eliminated in a long flute.

The key support area remains unchanged – only a breakthrough of $12,700-$12,800 can give a strong push to the decline. On the horizon of a few days, the price should test it again, but a true break-up is unlikely, it is more likely to be due to the crowding out of buyers who have made hasty purchases for a break-up of $14,000.

The external backdrop continues to deteriorate as all markets closed in the negative zone last week. The beginning of this week is mixed – oil prices continue to fall and stock indices are on a weak positive side.

The trend towards exit from risk assets continues and demand for safe instruments is growing. It is worth noting that this trend has been observed for several weeks now, but bitcoin looks noticeably better than the rest of the risk asset market, which may be due to the time lag and normal speculation. Or that there is really no correlation, and it was all just a coincidence.

Implementing a negative scenario could bring the first crypt currency to $12,500 just by triggering stop orders below the current trend zone. The next goal of this scenario is $12,000 as the previous resistance zone, which has not yet been tested.

It is difficult to identify targets for a positive scenario because Bitcoin has already broken through its global highs. We can only focus on the psychological mark of $15,000.

Thus, the first crypt currency is experiencing more and more problems in forming new price highs, after which strong pullbacks occur. However, Bitcoin is still above key support areas despite the negative external backdrop. My long-term forecast remains moderately negative, but it should not be realized in the form of transactions until the break-up of the $12,700-$12,800 zone.
