It’s been almost a decade since the inception of Bitcoin, a technology created by the infamous and anonymous Satoshi Nakamoto. Over the years, many people have been hunting for Bitcoin’s inventor and Satoshi sightings have increased a great deal since 2016. During the course of 2018 there were numerous so-called Satoshi sightings and a couple of individuals who claimed to be the mysterious creator himself. 2018 was a crazy year for cryptocurrency enthusiasts and a prolific one for all the loons who claimed to be Satoshi Nakamoto. A bunch of individuals came out of the woodwork this year to tell the world they created Bitcoin, and one of them even published the first chapter of a purported Satoshi Nakamoto autobiography……
Based on the current cryptocurrency market momentum, it is a bit unclear what the weekend will offer exactly. Although there is a fair bit of bearish pressure, which is only to be expected after a wild week, there is always a chance the markets will simply turn around on a dime. In the case of Dogecoin, the current trend may look worrisome, but that is not necessarily the case. Although most people would have liked to see the cryptocurrency bull run continue for months on end, that is not how most of these markets work exactly. Instead, there is always a need for a correction after strong gains in the past few days. In the case of Dogecoin, such a brief bearish trend could not be avoided altogether, although that doesn’t have to be a bad thing in the slightest. Read more…..

Cryptocurrency experts in Nigeria have recently called for “urgent regulations” on cryptocurrencies so the sector can gain the public’s trust, and become beneficial for the country’s economy. Luno, a South-African based crypto startup that operates in 40 other countries, announced that regulations will strengthen cryptocurrency-related operations in the country. At an event called Luno Meet in Lagos, country manager Owenzie Odia argued regulations will help cryptos’ popularity surge. Speaking on the theme “Building Trust in Nigeria’s cryptocurrency Market,” Odia noted the sector has various risks, which include volatility and bitcoin’s fame as a currency used for illicit purposes on the dark web, but added his platform has been growing at a steady pace.

Christmas is just around the corner, and most crypto investors’ wishlists are much longer this year than the year before. On Christmas Day 2017, the price of bitcoin was trading at $14,000 because bitcoin had finally gone mainstream and “everyone” was a buyer.
This year, the picture looks very different. Bitcoin is trading around the $4,000 mark, the ICO market is dying, exchanges all want to KYC everyone now, and the altcoin market is down by over 90 percent.
Clearly, there is only one person who can help us now. No, it is not John McAfee, Vitalik Buterin, or even Satoshi Nakamoto himself. The only person who can possibly help us now is none other than Santa Claus with his all-mighty powers of gift giving. So, it’s time to write him a crypto wishlist for 2019 and hope for the best.
And look at Ethereum, the number of active wallets has increased substantially, the amount of ETH sent per transaction has doubled, and the number of smart contracts deployed hit 1.5 million but its price is down 85 percent, and it now ranks below than the “banking cartel coin” XRP in terms of market cap.
As such, given the limited supply of CME and CBOE contracts, the effect of the two futures market on the actual price of Bitcoin could be minimal.
Kelly Loeffler, the CEO of Bakkt, said that cash-settled contracts have some benefits but a physically-settled Bitcoin futures contracts are necessary to strengthen the infrastructure supporting the asset.
“It’s great to have cash-settled, but there’s a need for physical delivery,” said Loeffler, emphasizing that the objective of Bakkt is to create a comfortable environment for investors to invest in digital assets.
The physical delivery of Bitcoin guaranteed by the Bakkt Bitcoin futures market will provide investors with crypto asset custody and deliver the asset to every investor in the market. Depending on the demand for the asset and the trading activity on Bakkt’s exchange, the scheduled launch of Bakkt in January could affect the supply of the dominant cryptocurrency and lead to an increase in the Bitcoin price.
Zeeshan Feroz, Coinbase’s U.K. CEO, said the firm looks for markets that are “close to or within jurisdictions that we operate in today” when it decides on new expansions. The company recently opened a new office in Dublin, as part of a contingency plan to continue to have access to the bloc post-Brexit.
Some of the markets Coinbase is expanding into are becoming increasingly popular destinations for cryptocurrency and blockchain-related start-ups. The company was able to participate in a total of 33 countries and help people to buy and sell crypto assets in these countries. Now, Coinbase has added six European markets in the following regions: Andorra, Gibraltar, Iceland, Lithuania, Isle of Man and Guernsey.
Gibraltar is, for example pretty interesting because it has a domestic licensing process for such firms to become registered blockchain technology providers. Iceland, however, has become a popular hub for so-called cryptocurrency mining due to an abundance of renewable energy.
