    Brad Garlinghouse hints that Ripple may soon go public

    Ripple CEO Brad Garlinghouse has told World Economic Forum (WEF) delegates in Davos, Switzerland that an initial public offering (IPO) may be on the cards for Ripple soon. IPOs are events where stocks in a company are generated and sold publicly for the very first time. Recent high-profile IPOs have included Beyond Meat, Uber, and Lyft. According to Asheesh Birla, SVP of Ripple, Garlinghouse shared with the audience: “In the next 12 months, you’ll see IPOs in the crypto/blockchain space. We’re not going to be the first… but I expect us to be on the leading side. It’s a natural evolution for our company.” The initial coin offering (ICO) craze was, to some extent, originally supposed to replace the IPOThe post Brad Garlinghouse hints that Ripple may soon go public appeared first on Coin Rivet.

    Bitfinex trader profits $7 million as Bitcoin begins bearish descent

    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.

    The Bitcoin futures market is growing with more solutions on the way

    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.

    Bitcoin flips bearish with battle over $8,450 level of support

    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.

    ‘Regulation will see Bitcoin go mainstream in the UK’ – Coinfloor CEO

    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.

    At the time of writing, Ethereum (ETH) is trading at around $167 following a whopping 11% increase in price since last week. Over the past 24 hours, ETH has gained about 1%. The world's second-largest cryptocurrency by market cap has been consolidating to the upside since the start of the new year and is now back above its 20-day and 50-day EMAs. As mentioned last week, the uncertainty around ETH's price action could mean a continuation of the current bullish momentum. In addition, ETH is getting close to the key resistance levels I discussed last week: between $170 and $180, right where the 200-day EMA is sitting.
