Bitcoin SV (BSV) is currently trading at around $257 after a huge 19% drop since last week. BSV has fallen significantly over the last 24 hours, losing around 9% in value. From September to October 2019, BSV pumped close to 80% before dropping around 45% towards the end of the year. However, the price of BSV spiked to a new all-time high this month after pumping over 300% since the start of 2020. Last week, at the peak of its most recent rally, BSV was worth $425 per coin. Will Bitcoin SV recover from its recent slump or continue to fall? Let's take a look at the chart. Despite the recent drop, Bitcoin SV's price chart is still extremely bullish.The post Latest Bitcoin SV price and analysis (BSV to USD) appeared first on Coin Rivet.
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.

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.

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.

Peter Schiff, founder of the SchiffGold precious metals brokerage, has caused controversy among crypto enthusiasts after claiming that Bitcoin as a monetary system is broken. Schiff tweeted on Sunday that he has lost all his Bitcoin as his crypto wallet is "corrupted". Schiff claims his BTC is now intrinsically worthless and has no market value. However, the real blow to the Bitcoin community came when Schiff commented: “I knew owning Bitcoin was a bad idea, I just never realized it was this bad!” Erik Voorhees, long-time Bitcoin supporter and CEO of crypto exchange ShapeShift, gifted the Bitcoin to Schiff in 2018, worth $50 at the time.
