Bitcoin-diefstal zal waarschijnlijk toenemen in de magere post-COVID-economie: rapport

Cybercriminelen kunnen de komende maanden echter de voorkeur geven aan een andere cryptocurrency.

Cryptocurrency-gerelateerde fraude en diefstal zullen waarschijnlijk toenemen in de post-COVID-19-wereld, volgens een nieuw rapport van cyberbeveiligings- en antivirusprovider Kaspersky Lab

Securelist, Kaspersky’s onderzoekstak naar cyberdreigingen, publiceerde een rapport over cyberdreigingen voor financiële organisaties, waarin een aantal specifieke soorten financiële aanvallen worden voorspeld die in 2021 waarschijnlijk zullen toenemen.

Securelist heeft voorspeld dat een golf van armoede, aangewakkerd door de COVID-19-pandemie, er onvermijdelijk toe zal leiden dat „meer mensen hun toevlucht nemen tot criminaliteit, waaronder cybercriminaliteit.“ Dat zou ook een toename kunnen betekenen van misdaden gerelateerd aan Bitcoin ( BTC ).

Volgens de onderzoekstak van Kaspersky is Bitcoin waarschijnlijk de meest aantrekkelijke asset voor cybercriminaliteit, omdat het de meest populaire digitale asset is. Het rapport luidt:

“We zouden bepaalde economieën kunnen zien crashen en lokale valuta’s zien dalen, wat Bitcoin-diefstal een stuk aantrekkelijker zou maken. We zouden meer fraude moeten verwachten, voornamelijk gericht op Immediate Edge, omdat deze cryptocurrency de meest populaire is. “

De onderzoekers van Securelist suggereerden ook dat online daders zouden kunnen overschakelen naar meer privacygerichte digitale middelen zoals Monero ( XMR ). Volgens het bedrijf zou deze omschakeling plaatsvinden vanwege de toenemende „technische mogelijkheden van monitoring, deanonimisering en inbeslagname van BTC.“ Het rapport van Securelist luidt:

“We mogen van cybercriminelen verwachten dat ze overschakelen op doorvoercryptocurrencies voor het in rekening brengen van slachtoffers. Er is een reden om aan te nemen dat ze zouden kunnen overschakelen naar andere valuta’s met verbeterde privacy, zoals Monero, om deze eerst als overgangsvaluta te gebruiken en vervolgens het geld om te zetten in een andere cryptocurrency naar keuze, inclusief BTC. “
Zoals eerder gemeld door Cointelegraph, zijn cryptogerelateerde misdaden in 2020 aanzienlijk vertraagd , hoewel sommige crypto-sectoren, zoals gedecentraliseerde financiën, nieuwe broeinesten zijn geworden voor criminele activiteiten. Volgens een rapport van het virtuele privénetwerkbedrijf Atlas VPN zullen crypto- en blockchain-gerelateerde hacks in 2021 waarschijnlijk blijven afnemen .

How to make 100% French Ethereum 2.0 (ETH) staking?

Staking with ETH on Ethereum 2.0 remains complex and difficult to access for the majority of investors. The technical and above all financial prerequisites (32 ETH minimum) being the main reasons. To allow anyone to staking with their ETH, the French platform Just Mining is launching a dedicated service in collaboration with Exaion. Find out how it works.

Ethereum 2.0 and staking

Since December 1, a new chain of Ethereum has emerged , called Ethereum 2.0 . This new version of the protocol, which is still in development, will bring its share of new features that will drastically improve the technical capabilities of the network.

Today, Ethereum 2.0 has entered phase 0 of its development, a period that will be followed by 3 more phases, namely 1, 1.5 and 2. Ultimately, the current protocol will be replaced by the new one, marking the start of a new era for Ethereum .

Far from being a simple update, Ethereum 2.0 allows the protocol to migrate from Proof of Work (PoW) to Proof of Stake (PoS) . This new consensus mechanism for Bitcoin Loophole is accompanied by a very interesting feature for holders of Ethers (ETH), staking .

By locking your ETH Ethereum of 2.0 over a period, it is possible to generate regular income without any effort , or almost . To have the opportunity to staking on Ethereum 2.0, there are certain prerequisites, which represent a gigantic obstacle for the majority of investors .

At the time of writing, this colossal barrier is around € 16,000 . Yes, to participate in Ethereum 2.0 staking, a minimum of 32 ETH is required, i.e. € 16,000 at the current cryptocurrency price, at € 500. Added to this is the need to have sufficient technical knowledge to maintain a network node on its own.

Currently, the annual return for those staking their ETH is 15.8% , a pretty good rate for a cryptocurrency of such importance. So how can you benefit from it if you do not have the required 32 ETH? How to avoid all the technical difficulties related to staking on Ethereum 2.0?

To meet growing demand and allow anyone to invest, the French platform Just Mining has just launched its staking service for Ethereum 2.0 . In partnership with Exaion , a subsidiary of the EDF group, let’s find out in detail how it works.

Participate in ETH staking with Just Mining

With Just Mining, you can invest in staking from 0.5 ETH , while delegating the technical aspect to the platform. But Just Mining is not content with outright delegation of your ETHs.

By partnering with Exaion, Just Mining will develop a competitive infrastructure to minimize node management costs. For this service, Just Mining charges a 7.5% fee on the interest received from your staking. To put it simply, an investor will receive all of his rewards, reduced by 7.5%.

By entrusting your ETH to Just Mining, it will also be possible to participate in the governance of the network. With Exaion, Just Mining makes decentralization a point of honor , with clients preserving their rights to governance.

Just Mining therefore offers 3 investment solutions :

If you do not yet have ETH: it is possible to buy it directly in euros or in cryptocurrencies on Just Mining;
If you have ETH: you can deposit them on Just Mining for the staker;
If you have ETH on Just Mining: staking can be done through reinvestment.

The top Bitcoin news of the week

BTC-Newsflash: The top Bitcoin news of the week

US users have to say goodbye to Binance, users earn Bitcoin via Ebay and much more. Welcome to the Top News.

Welcome to the BTC-ECHO-Newsflash. The most important news that has moved the Bitcoin ecosystem this week.
Chinese police confiscate almost 195,000 BTC

A recent report reveals new developments concerning one of the largest crypto-scams in history. A ruling by the Jiangsu Yancheng People’s Court has released exactly the amount of money China was able to seize after the arrest of the PlusToken by Bitcoin Era fraud suspects. The amounts confiscated by the authorities exceed $4.2 billion. In total, the officials confiscated 194,775 Bitcoin, 833,083 Ether, 1.4 million Litecoin and 487 million XRP. This makes the Chinese authorities likely to be the next big Bitcoin whale.

Bye, Bitcoin: Binance gives US customers 14-day ultimatum

For fear of legal consequences, Binance wants to block more American crypto traders from accessing its own platform. Until now, users have been able to log on to the Chinese stock exchange without having to prove their identity. With the right VPN, people can open a customer account, even if Binance does not want or is not allowed to do business with them legally. After the news service Forbes revealed a few days ago that Binance had allegedly fooled US supervisory authorities, the company took more radical action. According to media reports, the stock exchange had at least written to customers whom it classified as US consumers and asked them to leave the exchange within 14 days.
Ebay: Earn Bitcoin with every purchase with the new lollipop app

The shopping app Lolli, which specialises in crypto currencies, has announced its partnership with the shopping platform Ebay. Through the partnership, users of the application can receive up to 1% in the form of Bitcoin rewards for purchases on Ebay. With around 1.6 billion products and services and 127 million users, Ebay is one of the most popular shopping platforms in the world. The collaboration was announced just in time for the millions of eBay users to receive rewards for their purchases on Black Friday and Cybermonday – two of the most highly anticipated shopping events.

Major Japanese companies announce new payment system

More than 30 Japanese companies will launch verification tests for a private digital currency from April. They have formed a consortium for this purpose. On Thursday the consortium published a report proposing a common digital currency with an interoperable structure. It will allow different non-cash payment service providers to use it while maintaining their original payment services. It is worth noting that so far the Bank of Japan has not planned to issue a digital central bank currency. Nevertheless, it is co-operating with other central banks and fin-tech companies in the study.

28 million merchants soon Bitcoin-Hodler thanks to PayPal

In an interview with CNBC on Monday, PayPal’s CEO Dan Schulman announced that early next year PayPal will allow crypto-currencies as a source of financing for any transaction of the approximately 28 million business customers and merchants. This means that crypto-currencies can be deposited as security to take out loans and carry out transactions. This has already been possible for some time via companies such as Nexo or Celsius, but also locally via Aave or Compound. However, these platforms are firstly much smaller and secondly they are more likely to be used by private customers. The reach of PayPal, however, is in a completely different dimension. This step by the payment provider could therefore be a milestone for the crypto industry.

Record-breaking volumes for Binance: 37 billion dollars in just 24 hours!

Trading at the stars on the well-known exchange, following the simultaneous growth of the three major cryptocurrencies



With Bitcoin at less than $1,000 of its highest price ever ($19,891, reached in December 2017), even the volumes traded on the well-known Binance exchange have reached new heights: more than $37 billion in the last 24 hours.


According to CoinMarketCap data, Binance’s daily trading volume amounted to precisely $37,291,444.117, an increase of 40.5% in the last 24 hours: last week a peak of $25 billion was reached.


Open interest for Bitcoin futures (BTC) also reached a new all-time high on the platform: $1.17 billion, according to the Crypto Glassnode website:


„Open interest of #Bitcoin futures on #Binance has reached an all-time high (~1.17 billion dollars).



The user frenzy is in a very bullish phase for the main crypto assets. Bitcoin is trading over $19,100, up 4% from yesterday; Ether (ETH) has risen over 25% in the last week to $605; yesterday XRP reached an annual peak of $0.73 after more than doubling in value in just a week.


Binance’s business is growing even without US users. There are multiple reports on Twitter from US citizens who have received an email from Binance saying they will have to close their accounts within 14 days: the exchange has stated that accounts will be blocked if funds are not all withdrawn before that date. Binance has been subject to restrictions for US users since September 2019.

Market Wrap: Bitcoin Regains $10.6K; Alto Equilibrio Indirizzi Etere in calo

Bitcoin si sta riprendendo dal calo di martedì, mentre c’è una diminuzione di indirizzi etere a grande equilibrio.

Il Bitcoin (BTC) sta scambiando circa $10.651 a partire dalle 20:00 UTC (4 p.m. ET). Guadagnando lo 0,66% nelle 24 ore precedenti.
L’intervallo di 24 ore di Bitcoin: $10.524-$10.683
BTC è al di sopra della sua media mobile di 10 giorni ma al di sotto dei 50 giorni, un segnale laterale per i tecnici del mercato.

Il prezzo di Bitcoin sta guadagnando mercoledì, recuperando da un’ondata di vendite del martedì che ha coinciso con il tweet del Presidente degli Stati Uniti Donald Trump che ha annullato le trattative di stimolo con i legislatori. Bitcoin è stato in grado di raggiungere i 10.650 dollari sullo scambio spot come Coinbase prima di stabilirsi a 10.651 dollari, a partire dal momento della stampa.

Per saperne di più: Gli analisti non possono essere d’accordo su cosa ha spinto Big Spike nei nuovi indirizzi Bitcoin

Nella sua nota settimanale per gli investitori, la società di trading quantitativo QCP Capital ha indicato che la capacità di bitcoin di rimanere al di sopra dei 10.000 dollari a fronte di un ciclo di notizie poco ottimistico è promettente. „Avremmo bisogno di vedere una rottura al di sotto del livello chiave di $10.000 per avere un seguito al ribasso“, ha dichiarato QCP. „Probabilmente stiamo solo calpestando l’acqua e costruendo lo slancio fino a dopo le elezioni, quando pensiamo che la costa sarà chiara per lo sviluppo di una nuova tendenza del toro“. Dall’inizio di settembre il bitcoin è rimasto nella fascia di prezzo di 10.000$-11.000$.

„I mercati dei cripto-mercati sono ancora altamente correlati ai mercati tradizionali e all’economia nel suo complesso“, ha detto Michael Rabkin, responsabile delle vendite istituzionali per la catena DV Chain, il produttore di cripto-mercati per il mercato dei cripto-mercati. „Crediamo che ogni volta che i mercati di tempo aumentano o diminuiscono questo è esagerato nella crittografia. La correlazione è ancora molto alta“. La Bitcoin può operare in tandem con i mercati tradizionali, ma i suoi rendimenti nell’ultimo mese hanno battuto gli indici azionari globali.

Nel mercato delle opzioni, i trader hanno oltre 36.000 BTC in aperto interesse che scadono entro il 30 ottobre.

In base alla probabilità di queste opzioni, bitcoin ha una probabilità del 68% di chiudere il mese oltre i 10.000 dollari, una probabilità del 53% di superare i 10.500 dollari e solo il 37% di raggiungere gli 11.000 dollari.

La Rabkin di DV Chain ha notato che, poiché gli investitori più sofisticati saltano nella criptografia, essa può più che mai avere un flusso e un riflusso con il mercato tradizionale. „Dato che il bitcoin sta diventando una nuova classe di attività per gli operatori del mercato istituzionale, la sua sensibilità ai macro eventi aumenterà nel tempo“.

Indirizzi ad alto equilibrio dell’etereum in calo

La seconda valuta più grande per capitalizzazione di mercato, l’etere (ETH), è stata piatta mercoledì, scambiando circa 341 dollari e in rosso lo 0,03% in 24 ore a partire dalle 20:00 UTC (4:00 p.m. ET).

In mezzo alla guerra tecnologica USA-Cina, può Neo’s DeFi Stack Rival Ethereum di DeFi?

Il numero di indirizzi dell’Ethereum con un saldo superiore o uguale a 1.000 ETH è a un minimo di tre anni. È sceso di 7.162 indirizzi il 27 settembre, il più basso dal 17 ottobre 2017. A partire da martedì, il numero di indirizzi dell’Ethereum con un saldo superiore o uguale a 1.000 ETH è sceso a 7.220 indirizzi.

Numero di indirizzi Ethereum pari o superiore a 1.000 ETH.

È importante notare che questi dati di Glassnode non includono contratti intelligenti, il che può aiutare a spiegare perché il numero di indirizzi è diminuito nel 2020. George Clayton, un managing partner della società di investimento Cryptanalysis Capital, dice che molti grandi detentori di etere stanno probabilmente spostando alcuni dei crypto in protocolli DeFi basati su contratti intelligenti per ulteriori opportunità di profitto.

„Anche i credenti dell’etereum dovrebbero essere credenti DeFi“, ha detto Clayton. „Con miliardi che affluiscono a DeFi, i maggiori detentori di ETH potrebbero entrare in azione partecipando a pool automatizzati di mercato o impilando gettoni ERC-20, riducendo così i saldi degli ETH“.

La banca centrale estone conduce una ricerca sulla valuta digitale

Seguono altre banche centrali, tra cui la Banca Centrale Europea, nello studio delle valute virtuali.

La banca centrale estone, Eesti Pank, ha annunciato il lancio di un programma di ricerca per studiare come costruire un’infrastruttura di valuta digitale.

Secondo una dichiarazione, Eesti Pank ha collaborato con le società tecnologiche SW7 Group e Guardtime per il progetto di ricerca. L’obiettivo è quello di verificare se una soluzione per la creazione di un’infrastruttura di firma senza chiavi (KSI, Keyless Signature Infrastructure) è in grado di eseguire il suo programma di valuta virtuale. L’Estonia utilizza già la tecnologia blockchain KSI per i suoi servizi di e-government. Il progetto della banca esaminerà anche nuove soluzioni di pagamento „che possono essere rese possibili utilizzando ID elettronici e altre soluzioni di e-government estoni“.

Il progetto, tuttavia, non specificherà quali tecnologie dovranno essere utilizzate.

Il progetto si articolerà in diverse fasi e avrà una durata di circa due anni. La prima fase studierà come costruire una piattaforma scalabile, pratica e sicura che soddisfi i requisiti dei fondi digitali. Allo stesso tempo, la piattaforma deve anche spuntare le caselle di velocità, sicurezza, privacy e resilienza.

Rainer Olt, responsabile del dipartimento Sistemi di pagamento della banca, ha dichiarato:

„Come piccola banca centrale, Eesti Pank sceglie con cura quali progetti di sviluppo delle banche centrali dell’area dell’euro possiamo contribuire in modo significativo. Nel corso degli anni, l’Estonia ha sviluppato un know-how unico su come mantenere un e-government sicuro, privato ed efficiente. Il patrimonio di esperienza unico dell’Estonia fornisce un buon impulso al lancio di un progetto con le società tecnologiche SW7 e Guardtime per esplorare le opportunità tecnologiche. Quest’ultimo è il partner di cooperazione a lungo termine dell’Estonia nel campo della blockchain e un vero e proprio top mondiale nel suo settore“.

La banca ha sottolineato che si sforzano continuamente di sviluppare il contesto finanziario e il loro sistema di pagamento per stare al passo con i tempi e soddisfare le esigenze dei cittadini.

L’Estonia si è orientata verso la tecnologia blockchain anche se il suo programma di e-residenza è stato recentemente messo a dura prova quando gli e-residenti sono stati collegati a truffe.

Il mese scorso la presidente della Banca Centrale Europea Christine Lagarde ha spiegato che adottare l’euro digitale non significa rinunciare al fiat.

Crypto scammers damage Estonia’s e-citizenship

The local authorities hope to restore confidence in e-citizenship.

Estonia’s e-citizenship program is now under scrutiny by the local regulator as nationals of other countries who became e-citizens of that country through this program have been linked to crypto scams.

The local police’s white-collar crime department has discovered that foreign companies owned by people with Estonian e-citizenships have been implicated in several major exit scams

Regulators also suspect that Estonian companies and e-citizens were involved in organizing scams with initial coin offerings, according to a police report according to The News Spy.

Three months earlier, the crypto-friendly country found itself at the center of a $ 220 billion money laundering scandal. As a result, the Estonian regulators immediately revoked their licenses from more than 500 crypto firms . Today only 353 companies in Estonia have a crypto license. At the end of 2019, however, there were still 1,234 companies.

The scandal has already put a damper on Estonia’s progress in terms of digitization. The involvement of e-citizens in crypto scams is likely to further damage its reputation.

Former Estonian Prime Minister Taavi Roivas previously told Cointelegraph that the e-citizenship program was one of the measures intended to give the country a new start after 50 years of Soviet occupation. He said it was logical to digitize things instead of relying on paper. That was the origin of the idea for e-citizenship.

The government started the program in 2014. It was intended to give Estonian citizenship to everyone, regardless of where they actually are

After the introduction, the British editor-in-chief of the Economist Edward Lucas became Estonia’s first e-citizen. Many other well-known names from around the world followed suit, including venture capitalists Tim Draper, Guy Kawasaki, and Ben Horowitz. Japan’s former Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and German Chancellor Angela Merkel also later became e-citizens of the country. So far there are almost 70,000 Estonian e-citizens.

The team behind e-citizenship is now working with the police and the white-collar crime department to resolve the case and restore confidence in e-citizenship.

Daglige transaksjoner på Ethereum når en ny rekordhøy

Bommen til DeFi og lanseringen av UNI førte til å slå den forrige rekorden i 2018

Daglig aktivitet på Ethereum blockchain har nettopp nådd en ny heltid, i en tid med generell nettverksbelastning.

Per 17. september utgjorde antallet daglige transaksjoner på Ethereum Bitcoin Trader 1 406 000, ifølge data fra nettverkets hovedleser, Etherscan. Dette er det høyeste tallet som noensinne er registrert.

Ifølge Etherscan var den forrige rekordhøye 4. januar 2018, og toppet rundt 1350 000 transaksjoner per dag.

Den nye all-time high i daglige transaksjoner kommer i en tid med enorm vekst i desentraliserte finansieringsapplikasjoner, eller DeFi.

DeFi-sektoren har vokst betydelig de siste månedene, med en samlet investert verdi på 9 milliarder dollar i august i fjor. DeFi-sprøyten har også betydd at en rekke store globale børser som Binance og OKEx har skyndt seg for å liste flere og flere poletter i denne sektoren.

Siden de fleste DeFi-applikasjoner for tiden er bygget på Ethereum-nettverket, har veksten i industrien ført til et betydelig nivå av nettverksbelastning, noe som har skapt betydelige skalerbarhetsproblemer. Som et resultat så Ethereum-nettverksgebyrene, eller gassgebyrene, en kraftig økning, noe som resulterte i at Ethereum-gruvearbeidere tjente rekord $ 500 000 i avgifter på bare en time 1. september.

Etter lanseringen av Uniswaps UNI-token steg Ethereum-transaksjonsgebyrene til nesten $ 1 million i timen 18. september. Etter økningen i gassgebyrene, ba Coinbase-datterselskapet som arbeider med institusjonell handel, Coinbase Pro, for første gang sine kunder om å betale gassgebyrer og uttakskostnader.

El patrón de nubes de Bitcoin muestra que los osos podrían estar aún en pleno control

Bitcoin y todo el mercado de la criptodivisa están siendo testigos de una acción de precios relativamente mixta
Si bien la BTC ha enfrentado una intensa presión de venta, es importante señalar que los osos no han invalidado ninguna de sus estructuras de mercado a mediano plazo
Como tal, sigue estando bien posicionada para ver más ventajas a corto plazo
A pesar de esto, un analista está notando que la formación de la nube de la criptocorriente puede significar algunos problemas para su perspectiva a corto plazo, ya que muestra que todavía está atascada debajo de algunos niveles cruciales
El hecho de que pueda o no romperse a través de estos niveles debería ofrecer una visión de su tendencia a corto plazo

Bitcoin se encuentra de nuevo por debajo de los 12.000 dólares, con un influjo de presión de venta que se produjo ayer y que hizo que su precio bajara significativamente.

Ahora parece que está empezando a respetar límites de rango similares a los establecidos a lo largo de las últimas semanas, con un soporte de 11.600 dólares y una resistencia de alrededor de 12.000 dólares.

A pesar de que todavía no se han podido recuperar 12.000 dólares, el panorama de la cripto-moneda sigue siendo algo positivo a corto plazo, ya que la fuerza de los vendedores ha demostrado ser algo limitada hasta ahora.

Un analista señala algunos niveles clave que está observando de cerca, señalando que Bitcoin no está fuera de peligro hasta que estos niveles sean superados con firmeza.

Bitcoin cae en el rango de comercio anterior, abriendo las puertas a la baja

En el momento de escribir este artículo, Bitcoin está subiendo un poco menos del 1% a su precio actual de 11.810 dólares.

Esto marca un rebote desde los mínimos diarios de 11.600 dólares pero también marca un descenso desde los máximos de más de 12.000 dólares.

Debido a que BTC está operando ahora dentro del mismo rango de operaciones en el que estaba anteriormente, los analistas creen que una visita a sus anteriores mínimos de rango macro de 11.000 dólares puede ser inminente.

„La simplicidad de BTC para el rango actual“, declaró un analista mientras señalaba el siguiente gráfico.

Como se ve en el gráfico del analista, también parece haber una posibilidad de que Bitcoin esté formando un patrón clásico de distribución de Wyckoff.

BTC aún no ha recuperado estos niveles técnicos clave

Otro factor que actualmente cuenta en contra de Bitcoin es su incapacidad para recapturar unos pocos promedios móviles que residen dentro de su formación de nubes.

Mientras hablaba de esto, un analista señaló que no va a hacer un cortocircuito en el BTC hasta que vea una reacción más clara a estos niveles.

„La nube sigue haciendo lo suyo. Me ahorró un poco de tiempo de anhelo de fomo – se reducirá en una vez que el apoyo se reclama de nuevo dentro / por encima de ella. Hasta entonces sólo miraré, no hay interés en cortocircuitar.“

A menos que Bitcoin incurra en una mayor presión de compra que le permita superar esta región clave, la desventaja puede ser inminente.

American investors greatly prefer Bitcoin over other cryptosystems

Bitcoin (BTC) is the most popular crypto currency for trading in all regions of the world, but American investors are the biggest fans of crypto currency, according to a new report.

On August 6, leading cryptomontage analysis firm Chainalysis released a report dedicated to key trends in the North American cryptomontage market. According to the report, North American investors „disproportionately favor Bitcoin“ over other cryptosystems such as Ether (ETH) or XRP.

Ethereum-based assets record best performance in 2020

Bitcoin accounts for 72% of all cryptomoney operations in North America
While Bitcoin is the most widely traded crypt currency in the world, North America accounts for 72 percent of the total volume of transactions in the asset, according to the report. By comparison, in regions such as Africa and Western Europe, Bitcoin’s commercial activity amounts to 69% and 66%, respectively.

Altcoins such as Ether or XRP make up the smallest share of total crypto currency trading activity in North America among other regions, accounting for only 17%. In contrast, the share of altcoin trade in Central and South Asia and East Asia represents 35% and 33% of total cryptomone trading activity, respectively. Stable currencies such as Tether (USDT) were not counted in the category of alternative currencies, Chainalysis said.

According to Chainalysis‘ findings, professional and institutional investors based in North America are also among the world’s largest cryptosystems. According to the report, North American investors are more likely to buy and hold crypto currencies than those based in East Asia, whose trade intensity is significantly higher.

According to the report, trading intensity on East Asian-based exchanges was almost double that of North American trading centers last year.
