Top kryptonews of the week: Grayscale buying a lot of Bitcoin, Satoshi Nakamoto could have been an Escobar employee and much more


„Fortune favors the brave,“ announces a wise Greco-Roman maxim. However, I think that patience is the true favorite of the eternal gods. And why was I given it for philosophy? Well, because someday we have to break that $10,000 barrier. That cement pinata must fall. There is no doubt that we have tried. Lack of insistence is not the problem. Obviously we lack strength, but even a drop of water can break a rock with the power of constancy. That tree falls sooner or later.

Bitcoin, beloved torment! What am I going to do with you? We have no choice but to wait patiently for the end of this battle for the conquest of the 10,000. Now, let’s talk about the most read kryptonews of the week.

The Escobars believe they have found the real Satoshi

Here’s an unexpected twist in our film In Search of the Lost Satoshi. We’re looking at what screenwriters usually call the great revelation of the second act. That’s right. It’s been over 40 minutes of film. Our protagonist created Bitcoin and disappeared. The project was successful and many people appeared claiming to be the child’s father to apply for the lottery prize. Most of these so-called „Satoshis“ turned out to be clowns. The mystery of Satoshi’s true identity grows more and more every day. The matter has become a global hysteria. Who is Satoshi?

But suddenly, out of nowhere, the great revelation that leaves us all speechless. Nothing is what it seemed to be. The director has distracted us. Everything we thought was fake. The great and unexpected revelation of the second act. Satoshi’s a narc? What? We’re going black. Cut.

Now, the great revelation of the second act is not the climax of our story. The film isn’t finished yet and now it’s missing some film. Playing a little Sherlock Holmes, the first thing to consider is the source of the information. It seems to me that the CEO of Escobar Inc. is not a good source. If Dorian Nakamoto’s brother is a defector and a former target of the Escobars, how can we trust what they say about him? Obviously there’s a lot of bad blood there. On the other hand, a testimony is never enough. We need verifiable data. And we don’t have them.

However, here I must add something. Many bitcoiners have built a cult around Satoshi. It’s a myth now. A perfect and unpolluted being. A sacred cow fallen from the cryptographic sky. Many imagine a supernatural being. An old sage in a small cabin on the top of a mountain with a large server, a beautiful library and a Zen garden. I mean, a (crypto) Lao Tzu. The bitcoiners will never accept a Satoshi of flesh and blood ever again.

Forget the $10,000, Bitcoin’s $12,000 break will catch everyone off guard

Well, it’s certainly good to analyze an old prediction. When there are many optimistic predictions in the media, the price usually drops. It’s as ironic as it is true. Forget about the $10,000? Now comes the $12,000 break? The chicks were counted before they were born and the credit card was used for the celebration. What happened? We dropped the basket with all the eggs when we got drunk.

We cannot deny that the resistance of the 10,000 is a major psychological barrier. And not just because of the roundness of the number. The fact has been corroborated many times. It’s not a myth. And of course, when we break it, we’ll probably have a breakout at about $12,000. In other words, it will become our new support and we will define a new roof. However, this week we couldn’t break it and the rejection brought us back to about 9,000. Ouch.

Here’s a quick word on the technical indicators. It is important to understand that many of them may be sending false signals. Even when corroborated by other indicators. The final test for me is the sentiment indicator. The level of greed. The level of fear. Greed is the food of optimistic predictions, but it is the harbinger of price declines.

Huobi-Korea zieht sich aus dem XMR-Handel zurück


Huobi Korea kündigte am 8. April an, dass es die Unterstützung für den Handel mit Monero (XMR) ab 9. April 2020 beenden werde. Sie erklärten, dies sei auf „geringe Handelsvolumina und Anonymitätsfunktionen“ zurückzuführen. Sie bezogen sich jedoch nicht auf den jüngsten Fall der Vierten Kammer, in dem die südkoreanischen Medien spekuliert haben, dass das Handelsnetz XMR zur Abwicklung anonymer Transaktionen verwendet hat.

Laut der südkoreanischen Zeitung Sisa Journal häuften sich im Land weiterhin Schlagzeilen über den Fall der sexuellen Ausbeutung, wobei viele Medien darauf hinwiesen, dass Monero für kriminelle Handlungen benutzt worden sei, insbesondere im N. Fall.


Bei dem Fall handelt es sich um eine laufende strafrechtliche Untersuchung, bei der es angeblich um die sexuelle Ausbeutung und Verbreitung von Videos mit Vergewaltigung über Telegramm-Chatrooms ging.

Bithumb listet trotz Berichten weiterhin Immediate Edge in Südkorea. Die Tageszeitung Sisa berichtet auch, dass eine andere Krypto-Währungsbörse, Bithumb, wegen ihrer Entscheidung, XMR weiterhin zum Handel zuzulassen, unter Druck geraten ist. Nach Angaben lokaler Zeitungen ist es derzeit der einzige koreanische Austausch, der dies tut.

Huobi gab die folgende offizielle Erklärung zu der Entscheidung ab, Monero von der Liste zu streichen:

„Wir beschlossen, die Transaktion zu beenden, um eine Situation zu vermeiden, die durch das geringe Handelsvolumen und die Anonymität von Monero verursacht werden könnte.

Wie die Zeitung Sisa erklärt, gibt es jedoch keine schlüssigen Beweise dafür, dass XMR für Transaktionen innerhalb von Telegramm-Chatrooms verwendet wurde, in denen Berichten zufolge 74 Frauen, einige davon minderjährig, Opfer waren.

Belarus will Genehmigung zur Beschlagnahme von Krypto-Währungen von Kriminellen. Die südkoreanische Zeitung berichtet, dass der Mann, der beschuldigt wird, das Netzwerk für sexuelle Ausbeutung zu leiten, Cho Joo-bin, Zahlungen an Monero wegen seiner nicht nachvollziehbaren Eigenschaften vorzog. Es wird auch behauptet, dass es zur Zahlung eines Monatsgehalts an die Chatroom-Administratoren verwendet wurde.
