Bitfinex trader JOE007 has gained a staggering $6.95 million in unrealised profit by trading Bitcoin this week, according to the exchange's leaderboard. In December, Coin Rivet reported on the same trader's woeful loss of $26 million as he found himself caught in a long position during Bitcoin's decline to $6,800. However, as Bitcoin began to claw its way back up after the turn of the year, his profit and loss flipped into the positive. Bitcoin is now more than 10% down in the past five days, indicating that JOE007 has been holding a short position during the decline.

A futures contract is a technique used to hedge positions and reduce the risk of the unknown. In the case of Bitcoin, futures are mostly associated with speculators who wish to use traditional, regulated financial services to bet on the price of Bitcoin. Essentially, Bitcoin futures allow for traditional investors to enter the Bitcoin space and participate in the markets without having to go through all the steps needed to buy actual Bitcoin. As Andreas Antonopolous explains in this interview with Ivan on Tech, the more developed a market is, the more options will appear to bet on the price of said market. In this article, I will take a look at how the Bitcoin futures market has been developing.The post The Bitcoin futures market is growing with more solutions on the way appeared first on Coin Rivet.
A tremendous tussle between Bitcoin bulls and bears is underway this morning with a major sell-off causing price to slump towards the $8,450 level of support. This particular level provided a bounce for Bitcoin's price on two occasions over the weekend, while it was also a point of resistance on January 8. A daily candle close below this level would see the world's largest cryptocurrency flip into a bearish posture with downside price targets emerging at $8,150 and $7,850. A corrective move to the downside would also see a rejection of a potential golden cross, which would have seen the daily 50 EMA cross the 200 EMA to the upside for the first time since April 2019. However, the bearishThe post Bitcoin flips bearish with battle over $8,450 level of support appeared first on Coin Rivet.

Tighter EU laws governing cryptocurrency will lead to wider Bitcoin adoption, claims the CEO of established UK crypto exchange Coinfloor. This month, the European Union implemented a new law – known as the EU Fifth Anti-Money Laundering Directive (5AMLD) – which requires cryptocurrency platforms and wallet providers to identify their customers for anti-money laundering purposes. The UK has decided to implement the law despite its decision to leave the EU. Coinfloor CEO Obi Nwosu says tighter EU and UK Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) regulations will increase confidence among consumers. He told Coin Rivet: “Clearer regulation is a going to be a good thing for the UK and EU. It will bring more certainty for users, service providers like us, andThe post ‘Regulation will see Bitcoin go mainstream in the UK’ – Coinfloor CEO appeared first on Coin Rivet.

Taking to Twitter to express his outrage, Lewis warned followers that his image is being used by Bitcoin scammers in an attempt to defraud vulnerable victims.

It's time for President Donald Trump and his 4MoreYears campaign to move over. In this episode of "Moneyline" with Matt McCall, he's here with some soothing words about today's bull market and his new hashtag, 10MoreYears.Source: InvestorPlace That's right, it's not too good to be true. Just because the market seems to be reaching a new high every day -- and the Dow Jones Industrial Average is about to hit the important 30,000 level -- doesn't mean we are on the brink of a major stock market collapse. If you think like that, you're just going to do yourself in.Looking forward to what McCall has dubbed the "Roaring 2020s," it is important to be bold. Which is why Matt is looking at companies with $1 billion or less in market capitalization -- the market segment where he's had his biggest wins. Who would have thought that over the last 20 years, the biggest winners in the S&P 500 would include Monster Beverage (NASDAQ:MNST) and Tractor Supply (NASDAQ:TSCO)? But Monster Beverage grew from $34 million to $35 billion. And Tractor Supply grew from $31 million to $10.7 billion. Small-cap and micro-cap stocks are clearly the place to be.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsAnd as McCall looks for the bull market to continue soaring for at least another decade, he has some words of caution. If you can't handle the market, get out. Or at least, just get into the S&P 500. * The 10 Best Value Stocks to Own in 2020 One particularly worried subscriber recently asked him why two out of 10 stocks in a portfolio were down. But this mindset is dangerous. In this episode Matt reminds investors that you're simply looking for one or two big winners. Those wins will cancel out -- and far surpass -- the rest of the losers. McCall's PodcastThe stock market isn't the only thing rallying lately. Since the killing of Iran's Qasem Soleimani in early January, bitcoin has been on the way up. That's not surprising, as McCall has likened the cryptocurrency to safe-haven investments like gold and oil stocks. Bitcoin isn't the only name in the crypto world that's having a good start to 2020. Several smaller currencies -- called "alt-coins" are starting the year strong. One, called augur (REP) is up almost 44% in the past month. And Matt has more of those high-performing alt-coins where that came from. He just launched a new cryptocurrency scoring system, designed to help investors find the big winners.As Matt says, just like how software stocks were some of the biggest winners in the last two decades, bitcoin and its smaller peers will be some of the biggest winners in the future. And the alt-coins will show even bigger returns.Tune in to this episode of "Moneyline" for more on how to play this bull market, everything you need to know about bitcoin and his brand new hashtag -- 10MoreYears.Matthew McCall left Wall Street to actually help investors -- by getting them into the world's biggest, most revolutionary trends BEFORE anyone else. The power of being "first" gave Matt's readers the chance to bank +2,438% in Stamps.com (STMP), +1,523% in Ulta Beauty (ULTA) and +1,044% in Tesla (TSLA), just to name a few.

Bitcoin has been accused many times in the recent past of lacking innovation and quality developers working on its core protocol. However, if you look at what's going on under the hood, you'll see a great deal of exciting new features have been added over the last few years, with even more scheduled for this year. For example, last year, blockchain technology company Blockstream released Miniscript, a new scripting compiler for Bitcoin that aims to improve its programmability without compromising security. Recent technology proposals include Schnorr signatures (a new signature scheme), MAST (a brand new Merkle tree data structure), and Taproot, which offers a way to allow all participants to agree on an outcome and sign off on a settlementThe post Bitcoin technology: What's coming in 2020? appeared first on Coin Rivet.

The highly anticipated Bitcoin halving will take place later this year, with several analysts predicting that it could spur another cryptocurrency bull market. Roughly every four years, or every 210,000 blocks, Bitcoin undergoes a block reward halving, which means the reward for miners who add new blocks to the Bitcoin blockchain gets cut in half. The first halving happened in 2012. One year later, Bitcoin reached a new all-time high. The second halving came in 2016, with Bitcoin famously surging to a $20,000 all-time high in December 2017. Cryptocurrency mining is a very energy-intensive and expensive process, with electricity, insurance, and equipment all demanding a hefty initial and ongoing cost. Many believe that when the block reward is slashed, BitcoinThe post Will the Bitcoin halving spur a bull market? appeared first on Coin Rivet.
