    Suspects arrested over $550,000 ‘SIM swapping’ crypto theft

    Two men have been arrested and charged over a scheme to steal digital assets from cryptocurrency executives - as well as threatening their families. Eric Meiggs, 21, of Brockton, Massachusetts and Declan Harrington, 20, of Rockport, Massachusetts are accused of stealing hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of crypto. The men are alleged to have stolen the cryptocurrency by taking over their victims' social media and e-mail accounts using a technique known as “SIM swapping”. SIM swapping is where cybercriminals convince a victim’s phone carrier to reassign the victim’s cell phone number from the current SIM card to the hacker's own phone. According to the Department of Justice indictment, Meiggs and Harrington allegedly targeted executives of cryptocurrency companies and othersThe post Suspects arrested over $550,000 'SIM swapping' crypto theft appeared first on Coin Rivet.

    Bitcoin’s mempool spikes over 600% in last 24 hours

    Bitcoin's mempool has spiked over 600% in the last 24 hours. The Bitcoin mempool is the pool of unconfirmed Bitcoin transactions on the Bitcoin network. Once a Bitcoin transaction occurs on Bitcoin’s blockchain, it is not immediately added. Instead, it goes into this pool of in-motion transactions where it waits for confirmation. The mempool size was previously around 15MB before jumping to over 90MB in the span of a few hours. Is the Bitcoin network under attack? Is it being spammed? Or has a new organisation found brand new utility for the Bitcoin blockchain? 600% rise Looking at the mempool chart above, courtesy of blockchain.info, you can clearly see the sudden spike felt earlier today.

    An exec for the Dallas Mavericks basketball team says uptake on Bitcoin payments is slow - but he expects more fans to take interest in the future. The team was the second NBA franchise to accept Bitcoin as a method of payment for tickets and merchandise.

    Cryptocurrency market update: Consolidation ahead

    This month couldn't have got off to a better start. After the huge Bitcoin pump we saw in late October, where the price of BTC increased over 40% in the space of 24 hours, it seems the market has now stabilised. I personally expect the positive trend to continue this week following the recent news that President Xi Jinping wants China to be a key player in the blockchain space. It's notable that following Xi's comments, there was a massive surge in searches for "blockchain" and "Bitcoin" on WeChat. In addition, the endorsement for blockchain may kick-start a wave of adoption by the Chinese, especially by businesses, just as the brand new government-backed cryptocurrency is getting ready to launch.
