There are still a lot of unknown factors when it comes to the upcoming Bitcoin Cash hard fork. With numerous camps emerging, one has to wonder how many chains will exist after the fork itself completes on November 15th. So far, the hashrate statistics are quite telling, although that only tells one part of the story at this time. Bitcoin Unlimited (Status Quo) Four different “versions” of Bitcoin Cash may exist after the hard fork completes. This is primarily because there are many conflicting opinions on what the future of this altcoin will entail. In the case of Bitcoin Unlimited (status quo), it pertains to network nodes who will simply not upgrade to the new rules under any circumstances. It has an estimated 4% of the network hashrate, although this number has been on the decline for some time now….

Cybercriminals continue to devise and perfect new strategies to steal Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. In 2018 alone, the activities of these online syndicates have led to the theft of hundreds of millions of dollars. Here are some of the popular tactics used by these criminals to steal cryptocurrency online. Trojans and Malware Recently, Live Bitcoin News reported on Swiss authorities warning cryptocurrency exchange platforms of the emergence of modified e-banking trojans. This strain of trojans targets cryptocurrency trading platforms. Cybersecurity firm Kaspersky Labs says hackers have also created a new iteration of the deadly Rakhni trojan.

Traders Now Betting 2-to-1 the Bitcoin Cash Fork Will Cause Price Decline

Traders Now Betting 2-to-1 the Bitcoin Cash Fork Will Cause Price Decline
Source: Coindesk.com

Bitcoin cash bears are lining up. There are now almost twice as many open short positions betting that the price of bitcoin cash (BCH) will fall as there are longs betting on a rise in its price. According to data from crypto exchange Bitfinex, which allows margin trading for multiple cryptocurrencies, there are currently 89,457 open BCH short positions and 53,322 longs. This is, perhaps no coincidence, since there is a network update scheduled for bitcoin cash set to take place on Nov. 15. Under one possible outcome, BCH will split into two chains – centered around the Bitcoin ABC and Bitcoin SV code implementations – resulting in two distinct cryptocurrencies (and what is effectively a doubling of one’s holdings). While margin traders are strongly favoring a bearish outcome, both longs and shorts reached all-time highs in the last 24-hours. Shorts positions…

Ahead of Thursday’s hard fork of bitcoin cash, the war of the mining pools is becoming even more lopsided. Data from Coin Dance indicates that bitcoin cash mining pools which have pledged support for the Craig Wright–led result of the fork, Bitcoin SV, control some 76.39 percent of the hash power utilized in mining blocks over the last 24 hours. While bitcoin cash will almost certainly split after the fork, questions remain about which of the two resulting coins – Bitcoin ABC and Bitcoin SV – will succeed. Wright in particular has vowed to destroy the ABC network, going so far as to threaten ABC proponents on Twitter. SV’s hash power advantage is up from 73.62 percent just a day ago. In particular, CoinGeek, the platform owned by Wright supporter Calvin Ayre, jumped from controlling about 30.6 percent of the…

Cryptocurrency inventor, fund partner and advocate Max Keiser is predicting new all-time Bitcoin price highs as the stock market tumbled again this week. Bitcoin to ‘New All-Time High’ as Stock Market Slumps A drop in share prices for both Goldman Sachs and Apple has equated to an approximately 160-point loss for the Dow Jones November 12, leading Keiser to suggest the index could collapse to below the significant 10,000 barrier in future. “10 (years) of cash transfusions from central banks – masking the globe’s economic death in 2008 – hasn’t worked,” he wrote on Twitter. “Dow 10,000 here we come.
