    Bitcoin has made headlines again in recent weeks. Despite the volatility of the cryptocurrency, its increase in value since it broke into the market is undoubted. Now imagine having a large number of bitcoin in a digital wallet whose password you do not remember. That has happened to Stefan Thomas. Stefan thomas, a German-born programmer living in San Francisco, received 7,002 bitcoin from a cryptocurrency fanatic in exchange for making a video in 2011. These bitcoins are stored on a small hard drive, known as the IronKey, which requires digital keys to access it. Stefan wrote down these keys on a paper whose location is unknown. IronKey allows you up to 10 login attempts, before it is seized and your content is encrypted forever, and Stefan Thomas has already spent 8 of them to no avail. To put the situation in context, at the beginning of the year, the...
    Yesterday Whale Alert reported how 13,204 Bitcoins (BTC) left the Coinbase crypto exchange in multiple transactions and went to unknown wallets. Now the crypto community speculates, who was it? BTC whales leave Coinbase, who was the unknown whale? According to Whale Alert, 36 separate transactions, each valued between 351 and 391 Bitcoins, took place between 4 and 5 p.m. UTC. In fact, yesterday the Twitter account reported that 4,501 BTC had left the crypto exchange and were directed to an unknown wallet. However, it should come as no surprise. It is not the first time that large movements of money by Whales have come out from Coinbase and therefore it will probably not be the last time either. We can assume that the movement was triggered as a consequence of the most recent bullish momentum that the crypto market has enjoyed and with which Bitcoin reached...
    Although Elon Musk has shaken the cryptocurrency market in recent weeks with his recommendations and movements using Bitcoin and Dogecoin, the truth is that cryptocurrencies have been with us for quite some time and are well known by those users accustomed to investments and the stock markets. Since we carry personal computers in our pockets, from our mobile we can also manage our finances invested in cryptocurrencies and store virtual wallets, make purchases, sales or keep up to date with the market. That is why we are going to recommend a series of apps to dive into the world of cryptocurrencies from the palm of your hand. We will divide them in two, in query apps and in purses / buying and selling apps. Cryptocurrency value managers The first block of applications that we are going to see are those that allow us to know at all times what is...
    German prosecutors have confiscated more than 50 million euros ($60 million) worth of bitcoin from a fraudster. There’s only one problem: They can’t unlock the money because he won’t give them the password. The man was sentenced to jail and has since served his term, maintaining his silence throughout while police made repeated failed efforts to crack the code to access more than 1,700 bitcoin, said a prosecutor in the Bavarian town of Kempten. “We asked him but he didn’t say,” prosecutor Seb astian Murer told Reuters on Friday. “Perhaps he doesn’t know.” Bitcoin is stored on software known as a digital wallet that is secured through encryption. A password is used as a decryption key to open the wallet and access the bitcoin. When a password is lost, the user cannot open the wallet. The fraudster had been sentenced to more than two years in jail for covertly...

    Stefan Thomas holds an estimated $220 million worth of Bitcoin in one digital wallet but can't remember his password A computer programmer is locked out of a digital wallet containing an estimated $220 million worth of Bitcoin with only two chances left to figure out his password before its contents are encrypted and placed out of reach forever. German-born Stefan Thomas, who now lives in San Francisco, told the New York Times that he was gifted 7,002 Bitcoins by an early cryptocurrency fanatic in 2011 after creating a 'What is Bitcoin?' explainer video.

    Key facts: According to the businessman, the volatility of bitcoin prevents it from being a means of payment. For him, bitcoin could be a store of value only if regulators allow it. “I still believe that Bitcoin is not a currency and it will not be,” declared Pierpaolo Barbieri, CEO and founder of the company responsible for the Ualá digital wallet. Anyway, he considers that this cryptocurrency “can have a role as a (volatile) secondary store of value, like digital gold.” The Argentine businessman, whose company is also expanding in Mexico, explained on his Twitter account that, for bitcoin (BTC) to be a store of value, “you have to see how regulators act in the United States, the European Union and China.” . Before the comment of a user who, after reading his publication, suggested that Ualá allow funding the account with cryptocurrencies (more precisely with...
    Under new proposed regulations from the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network, it may become much easier for the government to track bitcoin transactions. And while there’s currently a 15-day comment period open, cryptocurrency exchange Coinbase and the Electronic Frontier Foundation are calling foul because that period includes Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year’s Eve, and New Year’s Day. The proposed regulations in question, which were filed at 4:20PM ET on December 18th, are about private wallets. Let’s say I am a famous and fancy cryptocurrency investor, and I do some trading on Coinbase. If I have my own private wallet that I want to transfer my money to, I will have to identify myself as the wallet’s owner if I’m sending more than $3,000 in a transaction. And if I want to do business with someone else who has a private wallet, I need to tell the exchange some pretty detailed...

    Before the transfer of power, the US Treasury could hastily pass a law affecting assets held in self-custody wallets. Officially, it would thus be a question of fighting against the illegal uses of cryptocurrency. This is a prospect that promises to meet very strong opposition. While the Trump administration will have to give up its place next January, the Secretary of the Treasury nevertheless intends to take advantage of this reprieve. A few weeks before the end of his duties, Steven Mnuchin would thus push in favor of a law to regulate electronic wallets. The legislation specifically targets self-custody wallets, that is to say, held directly by users. No transfer from an exchange without the identity of the recipients Officially, it would be for the authorities to fight against illegal transactions, by collecting data on the owners of these wallets. A boon for supporters of...
    According to Brian Armstrong, CEO of Coinbase, the outgoing Trump administration would consider requiring cryptocurrency exchange platforms to identify the recipients of outgoing transactions. “Last week we heard rumors that the US Treasury and its Secretary Steven Mnuchin were planning to rush through new regulations for self-hosted crypto wallets before their term ended. I fear this decision will have serious undesirable effects and I would like to share these concerns. For those who don’t know, a self-hosted crypto wallet (also known as a “non-custodial” wallet) is any software that allows individuals to store and use their own cryptocurrency, instead of having to rely on it. a trusted third party. Self-hosted crypto wallets are essential because they allow anyone to use this new technology to access basic financial services – just as anyone can use a computer or smartphone to access the open internet. The open nature...

    The U.S. government announced its seizure of $1 billion worth of the cryptocurrency bitcoin on the same day that the digital asset surged above $15,000 per coin, its highest sustained price since January 2018. Justice Department officials seized tens of thousands of bitcoins stored in a digital wallet linked to the online drug and firearm marketplace Silk Road, according to U.S. Attorney David Anderson of the Northern District of California. “Silk Road was the most notorious online criminal marketplace of its day," Anderson said Thursday in a civil complaint. “The successful prosecution of Silk Road’s founder in 2015 left open a billion-dollar question. Where did the money go?” That money didn't go anywhere for many years before a unit within the Internal Revenue Service that tracks digital currencies noticed 54 new transactions from the wallet, prompting the seizure of currency.

    A challenge worthy of the reward? Since the creation of Bitcoin (BTC) more than 10 years ago, huge numbers of wallets are forever lost or inaccessible. Most often, this occurs when its holder loses the password of a file containing the private key of the wallet. A priori therefore, this locks the bitcoins it contains forever. Today dozens of files of this type are on sale on a marketplace, All Private Keys. In exchange for a certain amount of BTC, it is possible to obtain “wallet.dat” encrypted files and attempt to crack them. ⚠️ Please note, we strongly advise against purchasing this type of file, it may be stolen files or a scam. Some Bitcoin wallets for sale on All Private Keys So anyone who managed to access these files would receive – presumably – a colossal reward, but the task is more difficult than...

    Shapovalov rues lack of maturity as Grand Slam bid ends What to do if your kid has Covid-19 symptoms How does a crypto exchange work? © Jirapong Manustrong / iStock A bitcoin crypto-exchange concept In the old days, if someone needed their cash, they would head down to the bank, fill out a form, stand in a long line, hand the form over, wait while someone counted the money, then counted it again, before they tucked the crisp bills into a neat white envelope and handed it over. And if someone wanted to buy stock back then, the process likely involved paper forms and maybe even a phone call. While these processes took plenty of time, they were pretty straightforward and standardized. The new world of cryptocurrency is a different story. Want to buy some Bitcoin? How about some Ethereum?
