Monster Bull Move On the Way? – Bad News For Wednesday, Dec 15th

Monster Bull Move On the Way? – Bad News For Wednesday, Dec 15th

Bitcoin lingers below $50,000 again and people are beginning to question if we have seen the highs for this cycle. Kraken CEO says Bitcoin is a solid buy below $40,000. Elon Musk is Time Magazine’s Person of the Year, and he says Dogecoin is better for buying stuff than Bitcoin.

Nike looks at the NFT world and says “let’s just do it” as they acquire collectibles startup RTFKT. And Animoca Games has teamed up with the Bored Ape Yacht Club to develop an online blockchain-based game.

‘Tis the season to give the gift of crypto.  So if you’re wondering what we’d like to discover under the tree on Christmas morning, Satoshis are always the perfect gift.  Well, that and your support as an audience.  So it’s ho ho ho and all that jolly stuff on our Bad News episode #575 of The Bad Crypto Podcast.

Subject: You guys rock the corn!

Hey I know you’ll probably never read this, but just wanted to tell you guys you’re awesome. both of you. I mean it.  It seems like every project you have on the show is great and if I would have put money into every one of them I think I would be way ahead right now haha. 

I’ve been listening to the show ever since you guys took over for Click and Clack, the car talk guys, and I think you do a pretty good job, but I still have a slight problem with the engine overheating. Could be the head gasket. any suggestions?

Thanks

Keep up the good work

Whales Bite As Bitcoin Sinks in This Week’s Crypto News

Whales Bite As Bitcoin Sinks in This Week’s Crypto News

Whales Bite As Bitcoin Sinks in This Week’s Crypto News

We start this week with a request. The Bad Crypto Podcast has been nominated in the Noonies for Cryptocurrency Podcast of the Year. If we’ve entertained you, informed you or just made you go “hmm, I did not know that” this year, please throw a vote or three in our direction.  We would be very grateful.

It’s been an odd week in the world of cryptocurrency. As inflation reaches heights not seen for 30 years and Argentines pay a 10 percent premium for crypto dollars, Bitcoin is down over 7 percent on the week, though still just above $60,000. Despite the pullback, some people think that the coin will hit $90,000 in the “coming weeks.” They include investment strategist Raoul Pal. He sees a rise of up to 300 percent before the year’s end.

One big investor certainly hopes so. Bitcoin’s third-largest whale just soaked up $99 million worth of the coin. The purchase was made as Bitcoin dipped below $60,000 so the buyer is already in the black. One possible reason for the whale’s optimism? The launch of Taproot, an upgrade that allows developers to integrate new features to improve privacy, scalability, and security.

Improved security comes a bit late for the creditors of Mt. Gox. But the rehabilitation plan to compensate them is now “final and binding.” Victims of the crypto Ponzi scheme BitConnect will also receive compensation. The U.S. Justice Department is planning to sell $56 million worth of cryptocurrency seized from Glenn Arcaro, the scam’s chief promoter.

Other parts of the government are also playing with the crypto world. Senator Ted Cruz of Texas is trying to repeal the cryptocurrency provisions in the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act. Ron Wyden (D-OR) and Bitcoin evangelist Cynthia Lummis (R-WY) are introducing a similar bill.

New York’s Mayor-elect Eric Adams has promised to put the city at the center of the cryptocurrency industry. Israel is applying anti-terror banking rules to cryptocurrencies. And LA’s Staples Center will soon be renamed the Crypto.com Arena.

Twitter is hiring a new crypto boss but they might want to think about offering the post to Snoop Dogg. The rapper is selling an NFT of a private party pass. Other celebs are in NFT trouble, Miramax is suing Quentin Tarantino over his Pulp Fiction NFTs.

In better news, Ethereum Wallet MetaMask has passed 21 million users, an increase of 420 percent since April. That kind of leap makes SAND look sad. The token is “only” up 37 percent as The Sandbox opens its metaverse.

Expect Argentines to look for a way to move in.

Sports Stadiums Go Crypto – Bad News For Nov 17th

Crypto moves further towards the mainstream as another major arena has been bought out for the next 20 years. A whale signals upwards move for Bitcoin as he buys $99 million more. Many think the massive run is getting closer as we approach the holidays. So much stuff is happening we just can’t. But we will because we want to. Obviously, you want to as well. Gluttons for punishment, I suppose.  

So grab some more beans and sit by the fire, no matter what Mr. Taggart says, cause this is our bad news episode #567 of The Bad Crypto Podcast.

Bitcoin is Still in “Good Shape”

Bitcoin is Still in “Good Shape”

It’s been a difficult week for Bitcoin which ends down more than 8 percent at just under $44,000. Mike Novogratz isn’t too bothered though. As long as the price stays above $40,000, the Galaxy Digital CEO thinks Bitcoin is in “good shape.”

Nayib Bukele agrees. The President of El Salvador, the first country in the world to accept Bitcoin as a currency, tweeted that he bought the dip. El Salvador bought 150 new coins, bringing its holding to 700 coins. El Salvador bought at $45,500. At current prices, the purchase puts El Salvadoran taxpayers just over a quarter of a million dollars in the red.

President Bukele will be hoping that those figures improve soon. The New York Digital Investment Group (NYDIG) has already produced some good figures. The group has published a report into Bitcoin’s carbon footprint. The report predicts that even if Bitcoin reaches $10 trillion by 2030, its emissions would still amount to only 0.9 percent of the world’s total, and its energy outlay would be just 0.4 percent.

Not all the number have been good this week though. Hackers made off with almost $12 million in Bitcoin from DeFi platform pNetwork. But the US is on the case. It’s making life harder for cryptohackers. The US Treasury has sanctioned Russian cryptocurrency exchange Suex for allegedly helping ransomware attackers to move more than $160 million of Bitcoin. No US residents or businesses can now work with the firm.

Suex isn’t the only exchange in trouble. Binance is stopping all crypto futures and options in Australia. Users in the country have 90 days to close their positions. In Miami, though, the city is taking on a position. The city’s commissioners have voted to accept funds generated by MiamiCoin, a new cryptocurrency from CityCoins. Mayor Francis Suarez has said that the coin has already given the city $5 million over 30 days.

Another coin doing well is Adventure Gold, part of the open-source Loot Project. The coins will become an in-game currency. An announcement from Coinbase about the currency sent the price from $2.91 to $4.29. And Dogecoin is still having its moment. Adam Aron, CEO of movie theater chain AMC has suggested that the company might accept Dogecoin in addition to Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, and Bitcoin Cash for online payments.

While old coins keep going, there’s more talk of the benefits of DeFi for the unbanked, and Compass Mining has launched a new service to let everyone benefit from cryptocurrency mining. It’s offering six different rigs.

And finally, Ron Watkins, a former administrator’s at his father’s 8Chan website and a leading force behind the QAnon movement, is selling NFTs to fund a new “secret project.” The NFTs of tweets from his now-banned stream are intended to raise funds for what Watkins has called “a critical project to help America.” 

Someone clearly doesn’t think everything is in “good shape.”
