Franklin Templeton seduced by Bitcoin

Bitcoin (BTC) has always enjoyed strong interest from investors. Many analysts do not hesitate to declare their flame for crypto. Asset management company Franklin Templeton is also interested in the Bitcoin blockchain and plans to invest heavily in its cryptocurrency.

Franklin Templeton under the spell of Bitcoin

Known as one of the largest asset management companies, the American organization Franklin Templeton embarked on Polygon, Ethereum’s Layer 2 platform last May. Obviously, she does not intend to stop there. Evidenced by a revelation of Sandy Kaul during an interview with the Wolf Of All Streets podcast.

At the turn of the interview, the senior vice-president confided in the beginnings of the American giant in the ecosystem of digital assets. She said the company was impressed with bitcoin, but especially the bitcoin blockchain and decided to experiment with it for operational efficiency of its businesses and to save money.

Franklin Templeton therefore multiplied the research and even created a multicoin wallet. She has also invested in various crypto ventures through a venture capital fund she established in 2021. Sandy Kaul also revealed that Franklin Templeton plans to better understand the Bitcoin network and operates a node to achieve this. END.

Interest that goes beyond bitcoin (BTC)

During the interview hosted by Scott Melker, Sandy Kaul also claimed that Franklin Templeton’s interest in cryptos is not limited to bitcoin (crypto). For this, the eponymous blockchain presents many opportunities that investors should take advantage of.

“I think one of the problems we have right now is that people get too fixated on bitcoin and often don’t think about the wider ecosystem…Bitcoin is a huge innovation, and we think it’s going to there will be huge opportunities in the future,” she said.

Sandy Kaul further predicted that an increase in the number of institutional investors interested in bitcoin and altcoins is imminent. For her, institutional involvement will be beneficial for cryptocurrencies which can finally see new highs after the bear market.

She is a firm believer in rising crypto prices and has said, “I know they don’t care about the price. If you’ve seen bitcoin hit $69,000 and you see it at $15,000, you know it can hit $69,000 again.”

The Franklin Templeton company therefore once again proves its clear interest in cryptocurrencies. A choice that may surprise Peter Schiff, the no-coiner who does not carry bitcoin in his heart and who has already predicted the fall of crypto more than once.

from crypto hacking to nuclear proliferation

Since Kim Jong Un came to power in 2011, North Korea has been actively involved in the development of nuclear weapons. In recent years, the country has built several nuclear reactors and carried out tests. It has even developed ballistic missiles whose capabilities worry the international community.

The flag of Korea, cryptos and missiles

Despite numerous international sanctions imposed on North Korea, its weapons program continues to thrive. How is it possible ? According to several investigations, North Korea is financing its military efforts through the theft of cryptocurrencies. In 2022 alone, North Korean hackers stole approximately $1.7 billion in loot!

Nuclear weapons, a priority for Kim Jong-un

North Korea has made a name for itself on the international scene thanks to its impressive military progress, particularly in nuclear armament. Now it is one of the few nations to possess nuclear warheads, ballistic missiles and hydrogen bombs.

To affirm its position of power, the country multiplies the tests with all kinds of nuclear weapons. For example, on January 6, Pyongyang announced the success of its first hydrogen bomb test. This confirms that nuclear weapons are a priority for Kim Jong-un.

Indeed, the North Korean power must consider that nuclear power will allow it to become a great power, and therefore to defy the United States which constantly threatens it. Accordingly, to support this military effort, it uses cryptocurrencies.

The Role of Cryptocurrencies in Korea’s Weapons Program

Developing nuclear weapons costs a lot of money. This money, the Kim Jong Un regime obtains it through the theft of cryptocurrencies. According to a senior American official, half of North Korea’s military efforts are financed thanks to this maneuver.

A strategy that has been used for several years

As a United Nations report indicates, Pyongyang has orchestrated “increasingly sophisticated attacks” via cyberspace since 2015. These attacks have two goals: steal funds from financial institutions and cryptocurrency platforms, and then recycle the stolen money so that it is untraceable.

The main targets of these attacks are cryptocurrency platforms, digital wallets, investment companies and Initial Coin Offerings (ICO). To penetrate their security systems, hackers use various methods such as:

  • Phishing;
  • Malware infiltration;
  • social engineering,
  • raw attacks,
  • Attacks on infrastructure.

The stolen sums are then transferred to controlled accounts in North Korea. They are used to finance the illicit ballistic and nuclear programs of the country. The maneuver has been repeated for several years.

According to Chainalysis, the data analysis platform, the number of hacking cases linked to North Koreans between 2020 and 2021 increased by 40%. Western security agencies and firms rank these attacks among the top four state-owned cyber threats in the world, alongside China, Russia and Iran.

Worrying figures on crypto theft

Chainalysis estimates that in 2021 nearly $3.3 billion worth of crypto was stolen worldwide. Hackers linked to North Korea have stolen nearly 400 million. This figure increased considerably the following year.

Indeed, the year 2022 has seen an upsurge in criminal cyber operations from North Korea. Among other misdeeds, hackers are believed to be responsible for hacking more than $600 million from the Ronin network, used for the Axie Infinity video game in March. They are also believed to be linked to the $100 million hack of cryptocurrency firm Harmony in June.

In total, almost $1.7 billion was illicitly harvested for North Korean weapons of mass destruction programs in 2022. Also according to Chainalysis, this latest estimate brings the total amount to nearly $3 billion. gleaned by the country over the past five years.

FBI investigations accuse the APT38 and Lazarus groups which they consider to be associated with the General Reconnaissance Office (North Korean intelligence services, editor’s note). The Lazarus group was already known in the United States in 2014 for having hacked into Sony Pictures Entertainment studios, in retaliation for the satirical film about North Korea, “The killer interview“. Some believe that he is also behind the recent Atomic Wallet hack.

Efforts to recover stolen funds

According to Chainalysis, the FBI recently managed to recover $30 million in cryptocurrencies stolen during the Axie Infinity game hack. This act, which is a first, is joined by combined efforts of other security agencies who fight against attempted crypto thefts and money laundering.

However, it should be noted that these attempts are becoming increasingly sophisticated. Finding the stolen funds is therefore more difficult than it seems. So, failing to achieve this goal, law enforcement and national security agencies are focusing on building their capacity to fight digital criminals.

Theft of cryptocurrencies: what impact on the sector?

The increase in cases of cryptocurrency theft is having a significant impact on the industry. In particular, it is the cause of the loss of user confidence. The latter are probably afraid of losing their funds and are reluctant to invest or use cryptocurrencies. Similarly, the media coverage of cases of theft and issues related to the security of funds discourage potential investors and weaken demand.

In short, North Korea is financing the development of its nuclear weapons through the theft of cryptocurrencies. In recent years, North Korean hackers have managed to steal astronomical sums on the market, allowing the country to circumvent international economic sanctions.

Their various attacks are at the root of the crisis of confidence that is shaking the cryptocurrency sector. Thus, security becomes a major challenge to be met in order to facilitate the evolution of the sector, but also the ethical use of cryptocurrencies. Fortunately, several efforts are being made in this direction.

Moody’s downgrades Coinbase’s rating – Real time Finances news and updates

Start of the week, the SEC hit the crypto industry hard like a cyclone. His passage ended with a heavy balance sheet on Binance, Coinbase and several tokens not registered as “security”. For Coinbase, the damage seems immense: fall in its shares, fall in the price of COIN… And to drive the point home, Moody’s just announced a “negative” rating for the US crypto exchange.

Coinbase gets a “negative” rating

Prominent members of the crypto community, elected officials and barons of the American exchange have raised their voices against the SEC after its operations against Coinbase and Binance. Some even went so far as to call Gary Gensler a market manipulator. But note that the situation continues to worsen on the side of Brian Armstrong and his entire team.

According to Cointelegraph, Moody’s has just published its verdict for Coinbase. A recent article published on the website of the financial rating agency highlighted a stock tumble of the crypto exchange on its rating scale.

Thus, Moody’s noted that Coinbase, formerly “ steady “, tipped in the box” negative ».

The change in outlook from stable to negative reflects the uncertain extent of the impact the SEC charges will have on Coinbase’s business model and cash flow. “, can we read on the press release.

What about the reasons for this downgrade by Moody’s?

On this subject, Moody’s was not stingy with explanations.

The bills that could lead to a downgrade of Coinbase ratings are:

  1. an accelerated decline in the company’s liquidity position, even if it suffers significant regulatory penalties,
  2. a strategic or mandatory review of its business model, resulting in lower revenues or higher costs and an inability to return to relatively healthy free cash flow generation,
  3. a further substantial and lasting reduction in trading income,
  4. a reduction in interest rate levels negatively impacting the company’s free cash flow outlook. »

At the same time, Moody’s Rating Assessment Service committee also recalled that Coinbase could become stable again in case of :

  • resolution of his problem with the SEC,
  • increase ” substantial and lasting » of its trading income,
  • and income diversification through development strong and sustainable non-transactional revenue streams. »

But for now, Moody’s doesn’t seem worried about Coinbase’s financial health. Indeed, the crypto exchange that recently decided to stay in the United States, is 5 billion dollar rich in its treasury. While its long-term debt is estimated at 3.4 billion dollars.

IRS notices were recently sent to many California taxpayers indicating that balances due on their 2022 federal tax returns had to be paid in 21 days. The notices, however, were not entirely clear to some who received them. 

That’s because millions of Californians have an extension to file their 2022 taxes granted by the IRS due to severe weather that has occurred in the state.

Next to “stars”, many developers follow one another today to speak “layer 2”.

  • Including Scott Millar from Blockstream to talk about the Liquid Network side chain.
  • Core dev Peter Todd came back on stage today to convince us to run our own nodes.
  • Lea Ptrasova presented vexl, an application for buying Bitcoin P2P. We needed it badly since the closure of the good old Local Bitcoin.

Beneath the SEC storm, Musk’s flash lingers

In a crypto landscape punctuated by ups and downs, Dogecoin, backed by renowned entrepreneur Elon Musk, tries to navigate the reefs of financial regulation and unpredictable market tides. Faced with growing challenges, can dogecoin still count on the support of its eminent “Dogefather”?

Dogecoin takes center stage

Elon Musk, the unsinkable Dogefather

Recently, the SEC filed a lawsuit against two cryptocurrency giants, Binance and Coinbase, causing the market to turn around.

The reaction of the crypto community was not long in coming, in particular prompting the intervention of the vice-president of research at Riot Platforms, Pierre Rochard, who pleaded on Twitter for increased attention to bitcoin.

In this turbulent context, Jack Dorsey, the founder of Twitter and avid bitcoin advocate, joined Rochard’s call, touting bitcoin’s robustness in the face of regulatory challenges. However, another influential voice, that of Elon Musk, chose a different path.

Responding to Dorsey with his usual sense of brevity, Musk tweeted: “DOGE ftw”, thus proclaiming its unwavering support for Dogecoin despite the headwinds. This tweet, typical of Musk’s mischievous posture, shows that the Tesla boss sticks to his favorite crypto.

Dogecoin under pressure: resist or sink?

Dogecoin was not spared the storm raised by the SEC’s attack on Binance. The crypto price fell, in line with the general market trend, without reacting to Musk’s encouragement. So, Dogecoin is currently trading at $0.067970, down 5.7% over one week.

Despite the lack of an explicit mention of the SEC designating it as a security, dogecoin is feeling the impact of regulatory uncertainties and the prevailing negative climate. The future of the currency remains up in the air, with investors hanging on to Musk’s next statements or any potential regulatory developments.

In sum, dogecoin finds itself in a delicate situation, between the regulatory pressure of the SEC and the variable support of Musk. If the future of dogecoin remains uncertain, its history shows that nothing is ever frozen in the crypto universe. Like sailors of old, crypto investors must navigate troubled waters, guided by the beacon of regulations and shifting winds. Meanwhile, the US Congress is shoving the SEC in favor of crypto.

Why does the SEC spare crypto proof-of-work?

Luke Jose A.

The successive attacks of the SEC against Binance and Coinbase have surprised the entire cryptosphere and raise many questions. What will be the next target for the SEC after these two big exchanges and which cryptos are next on the list? Analysts try to answer these questions and point out the existence of a common point between the digital assets targeted so far.

Proof-of-Work cryptos spared for the time being by the SEC

The US Financial Markets Authority has been on a witch hunt for a few days. The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), which has been attacking Coinbase lately, first attacked Binance and demanded the freezing of its assets.

The regulatory body criticizes these exchanges for not having registered certain digital assets and has also published the list of these. Steven Lubka believes he knows how the SEC selects the assets it targets. “I think PoW coins are largely avoided because there is no central issuer,” he told Decrypt media.

The managing director of Swan Bitcoin explains that PoW is an open system and has no central issuer, which differentiates it from digital assets that use the Proof-of-Stake or PoS system. Barry Silbert, founder and CEO of Digital Currency Group obviously made the same observation. In a tweet, he points out that there are “no Proof-of-Stake digital assets in any of the lawsuits.”

But be careful not to rejoice too quickly

For the time being, the policeman of the American financial markets has not yet explained why he only targets digital assets that use the Proof-of-Stake system. If for some analysts, the SEC selects digital assets based on their validation system, other experts believe that this is not the case.

Vineeth Bhuvanagiri believes “that the reasoning of the SEC could be more rooted in the popularity of the asset”. Brent XU, CEO of DeFi hub Umee says it’s impossible to explain the SEC’s choices. According to him, “the public knows too little of the reasoning and justification” of the SEC and therefore cannot explain “this apparent trend”.

After its lawsuits against Binance and Coinbase, the SEC is clearly determined to clean up and better regulate the crypto industry in the United States. The financial market regulator may give more details in the coming days on the choices of digital assets it targets.

Three Tips to Help Millennials Strengthen Their Finances

Published

on

If you’re in your 30s or early 40s, chances are you’re a member of the Millennial generation. Millennials — defined as being born between 1981 and 1996 — today represent the largest generation in the U.S. by population. Their transition into adulthood coincided with major economic events including the dotcom bust of the 2000s and the Great Recession in 2008 — followed by a long and robust bull market and a global pandemic that threw day-to-day life into a tailspin.

Now, as they enter their peak earning years, Millennials face another macroeconomic mixed bag: The job market is remarkably strong, but they’re feeling the squeeze of higher inflation, rising interest rates and cooling real estate valuations.

Of all the cryptocurrency bills studied in the United States Congress, that of the Republicans, the Digital Asset Market Structure (DAMS)East ten times better. This is the opinion of Ryan Selksi, CEO of Messari.

Republicans more open to cryptocurrencies

Republican elected officials have never shared the Democrats’ opinion on cryptocurrencies. The latter, for example, would be for them accomplices of Sam Bankman-Fried in the fall of FTX last November.

Thus, it is not uncommon to find crypto industry players praising Republicans’ efforts to cryptocurrency regulation. In a recent article, Cointelegraph quoted Ryan Selkis, who was full of praise for the new Republican crypto bill. Some of his comments were taken from his post on an event hosted by Coinbase on Twitter Space yesterday.

How could tokens, in their early stage, temporarily comply with securities laws until they are sufficiently decentralized? he asked on occasion.

During this exchange, the CEO of Messari also cited the efforts of representatives Patrick McHenry and Glenn Thompson. They would be the author ofa solution for tokens to achieve a level of compliance through decentralization. At this point, there is no need to resort to securities laws.

This reminds us of the solution proposed by Marc Cuban to avoid any attack from the SEC.

Regarding the “Digital Asset Market Structure” (DAMS) bill, he specified “ that this is probably a 10x improvement over anything we’ve seen so far “.

As a reminder, the Digital Commodities Consumer Protection Act is among the other crypto bills introduced in Congress. This is supposed to strengthen the regulation of these assets following the collapse of FTX.

Other personalities seduced by the same approach

TuongVy Le, head of regulation and policy at Bain Capital Crypto, believes there is no shortage of strength in DAMS. For her, this bill allows token issuers to go down the path of compliance.

The problem that many cryptocurrency issuers or token projects face is that when you launch a token, you don’t become decentralized right away, do you? ? »

In other words, the SEC must give more time to those companies that want to succeed in establishing decentralization. Rather than choose the path of violenceas it currently does with Binance and Coinbase,

BEUC at war against misleading advertising

The European Consumers’ Bureau (BEUC) filed a complaint with consumer protection bodies in the European Union on Thursday. The lobby points to the multiple advertisements related to cryptos and carried out by influencers. BEUC believes that misleading advertisements expose consumers and urges social networks to take adequate measures to protect them.

Profusion of misleading advertisements: BEUC’s bitter observation

Ads on cryptos can have harmful consequences when left unchecked. Internet users and even some investors can fall for aggressive advertising. It is convinced of this, and in order to protect investors, that Belgium announced new regulations on cryptocurrencies last April.

Now it’s BEUC’s turn to shout its fed up and call on EU consumer protection authorities for help. In a press release, Monique Goyens, the group’s general manager, points out the proliferation of aggressive advertisements. “Cryptocurrency promotion is everywhere, you see it on prime time TV,” she first said.

She goes on to say, “Consumers are increasingly being promised ‘get-rich-quick’ investments by social media ads and influencers… Unfortunately, in most cases, these claims are too good to be.” true and consumers run a high risk of losing a lot of money…”. For Monique Goyens, consumer protection authorities must take measures to put an end to this ongoing phenomenon.

Enforce stricter rules to protect consumers

If the recently adopted MiCA regulation requires exchanges to hold a license before the dissemination of any advertising, BEUC considers in its complaint that additional measures are necessary to regulate the promotion of these digital currencies. The federation of 43 consumer associations from European countries urges social networks to review their policies on cryptocurrency advertising.

BEUC wants YouTube, TikTok, Instagram, Twitter and all social networks to ban influencers from promoting cryptocurrencies. Monique Goyens says she expects social media to ”fulfill their duty to protect consumers against scams and false promises”

BEUC’s complaint comes after the many damages caused by aggressive advertisements to investors. The significant losses suffered by bitcoin investors after an advertisement in which an influencer appeared are remembered.
