Bitcoin in Backwardation (This is Fine)

One of the joys of having a futures market is the ability to understand what investors are thinking about the future of the price. For bitcoin, it doesn’t seem so great at the moment. 


As we can see, the contracts for the bitcoin futures on the CBOE are currently in backwardation, meaning that contracts with a later expiration are trading consecutively lower.

Of course, something like this might have made me nervous on a normal day, but then I remembered that oil futures were trading in contango (opposite of backwardation) before the prices collapsed back in October.

Also, the volumes here are kind of silly. I mean, 227 BTC (less than $1 million) trading on a contract that expires today. Sure, the title is catchy but what can we really learn from this?

Today’s Highlights

Shutdown: Day 26

Day’s to Brexit: 72

Constantinople Delayed

Please note: All data, figures & graphs are valid as of January 16th. All trading carries risk. Only risk capital you can afford to lose.

Traditional Markets

You may have noticed that we’re now including a countdown to Brexit in the highlights section, right next to the US government shutdown counter. I think they fit together neatly. Two governments descending into a state of turmoil over political wrangling.

Today, Theresa May’s government will see the ultimate test. If she loses the vote of no confidence, the UK heads to new elections… again.

Over in the East, China decided to inject the market with a record level of stimulus. Yesterday’s tax cuts may have been insufficient to maintain growth, so they’ve gone the route of free cash for the market.

In addition, it seems the Institue of International Finance has made a rather shocking estimation. It seems our entire economic system, from our homes to places of work and our governments are increasingly reliant on debt.

Given all the above, it’s no wonder that the European Central Bank is now sounding a new alarm.

Don’t worry about any of this though. The stock markets are up today. Hope the earnings reports from the financial sector go well.

Ethereum Upgrade Delayed

After all the excitement, the crypto community was disappointed to hear last night that the long-awaited Constantinople upgrade has been delayed once again.

It seems a critical bug was found at the last minute and the lead developers pulled the plug. Here we can see the crypto market, led by Ethereum, dropping moments after the announcement was made.

We’re seeing a bit of a recovery this morning but that was really scary. I mean, it’s good that they caught the bug before going live but the fact that it came within 30 hours of the upgrade is a bit nervewracking.

These things do happen, virtually all major platforms including Windows, Android, and Apple Operating systems, have seen critical bugs before. Though it would be possible to release a patch, fork the network again, and return to normal, that kind of process could in itself have done irreparable damage.

We hope that Constantinople whenever it is ready, goes through without any additional hitches.

Binance Freezes ‘Some of the Funds’ Stolen in Cryptopia Hack

Cryptopia Binance frozen coin

Some of the stolen cryptocurrency from yesterday’s Cryptopia hack has been sent to Binance, which has confirmed already freezing some of the funds. 


Binance Freezing Funds Stolen from Cryptopia

Twitter account @ShaftedTangu has alleged that some funds stolen as a result of Cryptopia’s hack have been siphoned through Binance.

The amounts sent to Binance in question include roughly $7,500 in Metal (MTL) 00, $6,750 in KyberNetwork coin (KNC) 00, $7,181 OmiseGO tokens (OMG) 00, and $8,724 in EnjinCoin (ENJ) 00. All of it totals around $30,000.

Changpeng Zhao, CEO at Binance – the world’s largest cryptocurrency exchange by means of traded volumes, has confirmed the allegations, reassuring that they’ve already frozen some of the funds.

Zhao commented:

Just checked, we were able to freeze some of the funds. I don’t understand why the hackers keep sending to Binance. Social media will be pretty fast to report it, and we will freeze it. It’s a high-risk maneuver for them.

Bitcoinist reported yesterday that Cryptopia’s security has been breached, resulting in ‘significant losses’. Police in New Zealand also confirmed.

Binance Caught in the Fire

Zhao’s tweet caused a reaction in crypto Twitter’s community as one user (@Crypto_Bitlord) expressed his bewilderment that Zhao referred to “social media” as a means of reporting rather than Binance’s own surveillance systems.

On the matter, Binance’s CEO said:

It’s quite easy to generate a brand new address. We (and no one) recognize every transaction out there. We already have very in-depth and detailed blockchain analysis.

Yet, the question remains – if a regular Twitter user has been able to detect the transaction in question, how, and more importantly – why did Binance miss it?

Perhaps the better question, as posed by @Crypto_Bitlord is:

So you are saying criminals can steal funds and just create a brand new address to send to before binance?

In the meantime, Binance announced today the launch of their Binance Jersey fiat exchange. The platform is aimed at traders from Europe and it offers BTC/GBP, ETH/GBP, BTC/EUR, and ETH/EUR trading pairs.

What do you think of Binance missing the transactions in question? Don’t hesitate to let us know in the comments below!

South Africa to Start Tracking All Cryptocurrency Transactions in 2019

cryptocurrency

Owning bitcoin in South Africa just got a little harder, or at least it will do by the end of quarter one this year. According to a consultation paper published yesterday by the South African Reserve Bank (SARB), some hefty new regulation surrounding and exchanges and ATMs is about to be enforced.


South African Regulators Are Cracking Down on Bitcoin

The paper points to the several problems that cryptocurrencies present that spur the need to develop a proper regulatory response. Among these, it states that crypto assets may have a serious impact on the financial sector in the country. And that they present too many opportunities for “regulatory arbitrage.” Furthermore:

Crypto assets do not fit neatly within the current regulatory framework

This means, they argue, that they must draft new legislation, particularly at a time of growing interest from the public.

The paper also points to other problems with cryptocurrency, including the rising number of scams and hacks.

Currently, none of the consultation paper’s proposed approaches to regulating Bitcoin 00 have been enforced. The paper is still open to public comment until Feb 15.

The Intergovernmental FinTech Working Group (IFWG)

The IFWG formed a group to create this consultation paper. The group, called the Crypto Assets Regulatory Working Group, includes members from the SARB and the Treasury. Its aim is to forge a way forward for the regulation of cryptocurrency in South Africa.

South African Reserve Bank Planning to Test Cryptocurrrency Regulations

Traditional financial institutions and the country’s Reserve bank are laying the way forward for crypto’s future here. It’s hardly surprising then, that owning bitcoin in South Africa is about to get a whole lot harder.

Within the paper, the group acknowledges the possible advantages of cryptocurrency within the South African market, such as:

Customers purchasing crypto assets could seek to diversify their investment portfolio to an asset class that is not necessarily related to specific country risk.

However, the paper weighs more heavily on the problems of leaving cryptocurrency unregulated. This is hardly surprising when you consider the members that comprise the group.

Although the potential benefits of crypto assets that are related to lower transactional costs, greater speed and enhanced security of transactions are often touted, actual use cases thus far are yet to demonstrate that crypto assets payments are consistently faster, safer and cheaper than existing options.

Moreover, they go on to reiterate the ease with which Bitcoin can assist in criminal activities such as money laundering. They would. These are bankers after all.

Bitcoin-ing in South Africa Will Get Harder by End of Q1

The paper is currently in a draft version and nothing is set in stone yet, however:

The regulatory authorities will specify the way forward through a policy instrument such as a guidance note or position paper aimed for the first quarter of 2019.

The Crypto Assets Regulatory Working Group believes that regulation should not be delayed any further and that a clear approach is necessary.

Some of the main actions that will be taken are regarding the monitoring of cryptocurrency transactions.

This will focus heavily on AML/KYC and ensure that cryptocurrency exchanges, custodial services, and Bitcoin ATMs comply with existing South African financial security legislation.

They will also need to register with the IFWG and comply with AML/CFT (combating the financing of terrorism) conditions of the Financial Intelligence Centre Act.

Moreover, service providers will need to monitor user transactions, particularly large ones that may signal terrorist activity. Any service providers that fail to comply with these requirements will have sanctions imposed upon them.

Congratulations, South Africa, you’re starting to catch up to China.

ICOs Raked in $13 Billion Despite 90% ETH Price Drop, New Research Finds

ICOs made almost $13 billion in profits from their token sales despite the 2018 cryptocurrency bear market, new research from BitMEX reveals.


BitMEX: ICO Issuers ‘Gave Themselves $24 Billion’

Published January 16, the third instalment of the trading platform’s dedicated series on ICO statistics also suggests ICO teams “gave to themselves” tokens worth over $24 billion at the time of issuance.

“Today this figure has fallen to around US$5 billion, with the difference primarily being caused by a fall in the market value of the tokens, alongside ($1.5 billion) of transfers away from team address clusters (Possibly disposals),” BitMEX summarizes.

In total, combined with findings from the second installment in October 2018, a figure of $12.8 billion is now circulating as the total profit wrought from the ICO craze of the past two years.

While some teams have since launched products and demonstrated application of funds, many have yet to do so, staying dormant since their token sales.

As Bitcoinist reported, ICOs that raised hundreds of millions of dollars each faced a highly volatile market over the last twelve months with over 70 percent now underwater.

Others have since fallen foul of the law, with Paragon and Airfox both required to pay back huge sums to investors along with fines for flouting US securities regulations.

2020 ICO Renaissance?

Responding to the BitMEX findings, Blockstream CEO and Hashcash inventor Adam Back thus appeared unsurprised.

“[W]hen people start startups, they take usually a paycut (versus a) big (company), so modest pay, relatively,” he commented on Twitter.

[A]and take illiquid stock, that is not tradeable (sic) until they achieve technology and market success. [A]m I reading it right that ICOs just dipped into investor capital (and) gave it to themselves?

BitMEX CEO Arthur Hayes was also palpably nonplussed.

“When you create poo poo out of thin air, gravity is a bitch,” he tweeted.

Ethereum (ETH) 00, the major network used to issue ICO tokens, currently trades around $120, equating to a drop of over 90 percent versus its all-time highs.

Earlier this month, Hayes suggested that both ETH and the ICO market could see a resurgence within the next eighteen months.

Bitcoin Price Analysis: Bulls Too Confident, Too Soon

Bitcoin price analysis

After the sharp decline for Bitcoin price yesterday retesting the low $3,500s we take a closer look at whats going on with the market.


Bitcoin Price: 4-Hour Bitcoin Chart

Bitcoin price 00 has failed to regain the critical $3750 point of control so far this week and is still consolidating under it after being rejected by the $4k handle and scuppering the short term hopes of an inverse head and shoulders bottom.

Last night saw the price fall from highs of $3680 and a subsequent bounce back today, before once again being rejected and settle around $3600, but seemingly continues to be drawn towards the mid $3000s rather than pressing on to new highs.

Sentiment Analysis

Looking more closely at the market we can see that the sentiment in the market is bullish, with longs out weighing shorts by 30k to 22k at Bitfinex.

While this may suggest that the market believes that there is hope that the bottom is in and upside can be expected, the issue is that generally speaking, the longs at 30k is reaching the maximum levels the market tends to see, with these positions being built all the way down to $6k.

During this time, short positions have also closed from 40k down to 22k.

This means that despite the buying pressure of both combined, the market remains stuck around the mid $3ks, which is the 61% retracement of the bounce from $3.1k.

Looking at the total leverage exposure, this is also beginging to reach out towards the 50k lows that we have previously seen.  As highlighted on the chart, it becomes clear that where we have seen these conditions in the past, we have seen a sharp selloff to retest the lows.

Bitcoin is therefore starting to reveal some underlying weakness in its market posture and indicates that another retest of the low $3ks could be on the horizon in the near future.

With CBOE XBT futures expiring today, there may be some hope of a short term relief rally as we have seen previously but generally speaking it seems likely that Bitcoin price needs to prove its metal at the $3.1ks before we move higher.

On the Brink of…College? ‘Bitcoin Baby’ Receives BTC From Ad in The Times

Bitcoin baby

A rather interesting listing has popped up in The Times of parents seeking to raise money for their newborn baby via Bitcoin donations. 


‘Bitcoin Baby’ Asks for College Donations

Little Izabella Anna Bowles was born on January 6th, 2019. Her parents, however, have decided to waste absolutely no time in saving up for her college fund.

Unlike regular parents, however, Wioletta and Peter, have decided to ask the cryptocurrency community for their financial support.

A listing published in The Times reads:

Bitcoin Baby

On 6th January 2019 to Wioletta (nee Witek) and Peter, a daughter, Izabella Anna Bowles, sister to Philip, Weighed 2.2kg.

Bitcoin College fund: 1ZAB5XeKMdvax2S8eZT7GQ6Nj4xjbsw1Y

The cryptocurrency community has been quick to respond. The first recorded transaction to that address was on January 10th. Four days later, the address has already seen 154 transactions and it contains 1.03581043 Bitcoin (BTC) 00.

At the time of writing this, the BTC in the address is worth around $3,660.53.

The Times is no stranger to publishing Bitcoin-related content. On January 3rd, 2019, the newspaper featured a front cover ad celebrating Bitcoin genesis block’s tenth birthday, which famously includes a headline from The Times on January 3rd, 2009 that reads:

The Times 03/Jan/2009 Chancellor on brink of second bailout for banks.

The same issue also published an article of BitMEX’s CEO Arthur Hayes warning that the end of cash is “sooner than you think.”

Begging or Crowdfunding?

Izabella’s parents initiative has been regarded by some as a “disguised way to beg” as the Reddit submission has been flagged and removed as it constitutes “begging for money.”

However, the overwhelming majority of users have been nothing but welcoming. The accumulated amount of BTC best shows that.

One thing most of them seem to agree on, however, is the fact that it was a bad move by the parents to only publish the 33 alphanumeric address instead of the alternative QR code.

A lot of users are also making the case that while the current amount of Izabella’s college fund might be insufficient to cover her tuitions if the bullish predictions for Bitcoin’s price come true, it might be more than enough in the future.

Will the Bitcoin baby receive enough money to cover college? Share your prediction below!

XRP Overtakes Ethereum Despite Looming ‘Constantinople’ Upgrade

Ethereum constantinople

XRP has reclaimed the position of the second largest cryptocurrency by market cap from ETH just days before Ethereum’s ‘Constantinople’ hard-fork upgrade. 


Pre-Fork Drop

On January 16th, Ethereum is scheduled to undergo a network-wide system update called ‘Constantinople’. Among other things, the implementation of the upgrade will reduce the block reward from 3 ETH/block to 2 ETH/block.

Days before the event, however, Ethereum’s (ETH) 00 price experienced a notable decline.

In a matter of minutes, ETH price dropped by about 8 percent.

The movement caused ETH to fall behind Ripple (XRP), which reclaimed its spot as the second largest cryptocurrency by means of market capitalization, less than two weeks after Ethereum regained the number two spot from XRP.

In fact, the two have been neck and neck over the past few months in cryptocurrency market cap rankings.

XRP 00 also experienced a decrease around the same time, but the cryptocurrency experienced a relatively smaller loss of 2.5 percent against the USD.

Ethereum’s ‘Constantinople’

Constantinople is a system upgrade scheduled for implementation at block 7,080,000. Given the current average block time, the event should take place on January 16th, 2019.

One of the most discussed changes that the upgrade will cause is the reduction of block reward from the current 3 ETH/block to 2 ETH/block. This is also referred to as the “thirdening.” It’s the second time Ethereum’s block rewards have been reduced.

The first one was called “Byzantium” and it took place on October 16th, 2017. Back then, ETH surged by about 6 percent during the day, followed by the cryptocurrency’s late 2017 rally to an all-time high of about $1,400.

In total, the upgrade will integrate 5 Ethereum Improvement Proposals (EIPs), which are geared toward tackling cost, speed, functionality, and mining issues.

Support For ‘Constantinople’

Several cryptocurrency exchanges have announced their support for the upcoming network upgrade.

Binance, HitBTC, Huobi, Bittrex, OKEx, CEX.IO, Cryptopia, and Poloniex, have all announced that they will support the Constantinople hard-fork.

Most of them advise users to give sufficient time for their deposits to be processed prior to the upgrade.

At the time of writing this, Gemini, Coinbase, and Bitfinex, haven’t yet declared their support for the upgrade.

Bakkt Expands Compliance Capabilities With Its First Acquisition

ice bakkt nyse

Fresh from completing its maiden funding round, Bakkt announced its first acquisition on Monday, Jan. 14, 2019. The daughter company of the Intercontinental Exchange (ICE) is also eyeing the possibility of expanding beyond the U.S. market.


Bakkt Acquires RCG Back Office

Bakkt announced the news of the acquisition via a Medium post by CEO, Kelly Loeffler. According to the blog post, the company is acquiring some assets of Rosenthal Collins Group (RCG), a longstanding independent futures commission merchant.

According to Loeffler, the deal should be finalized by February. Back in December 2018, Marex Spectron, the Commodity Brokerage firm acquired RCG’s customer business. The Bakkt CEO says the deal with RCG is for the purchase of assets related to its platform.

In an interview with Fortune, the Bakkt CEO said:

Typically when companies are combined you have overlapping systems, so we saw an opportunity to a purchase a portion of the back office operations, including compliance and treasury services, and risk management, as well as adding members of the RCG team.

Commenting on the importance of the acquisition, Loeffler said that it enhanced the platforms expertise across risk management and treasury operations.

Other aspects of the transaction will contribute to our regulatory, AML/KYC and customer service operations as we help enable digital asset acceptance by bringing more choice and control to buyers and sellers.

To this end, Loeffler insists that the acquisition isn’t tailored to institutional needs alone. According to the Bakkt CEO, the move has immense benefits for its consumer business as well.

Not Standing Still

The United States Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) is yet to approve for Bakkt to begin trading its Bitcoin futures. However, Loeffler says the company isn’t waiting around for approval as the team continues to work behind the scene.

Initially set for launch in January 2019, reports say the current U.S. government shutdown will push the launch to ‘early 2019.’

Nevertheless, Bitcoinist reported that the company raised $182.5 million in its first funding round from prominent investors like Microsoft at the end of December.

While waiting for CFTC approval, Bakkt is reportedly eyeing making inroads to markets outside the United States. According to Loeffler, the platform is in talks with regulatory agencies outside the country.

Meanwhile, the company continues to reiterate that the current market conditions do not negatively impact its plans. Loeffler noted:

People focus narrowly on Bitcoin’s price, but blockchain and crypto-currency technology keep advancing. Bitcoin certainly needs a boost; Bakkt could very well help provide it.

Do you think the Bakkt launch will ignite Bitcoin boost? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
