Quote of the week:
CEO of CoinList Andy Bromberg for Cointelegraph: “[In 2019] it feels like people are focused on building… I think the market is going to be quiet for a little bit, while people focus on actually creating things. It feels like a little bit of a Mesopotamia, ‘cradle of civilization’ moment, where everyone has the ingredients they need, needs to focus in and start to build out those empires, and create what the future is going to look like, and that’s what this year is going to be about.”
In case you missed it:
- Chainalysis reported that 2 hacker groups have stolen around $1 billion in total. According to the report, these groups responsible for more than 60% of crypto exchange hacks. One of the groups is characterized as “giant, tightly controlled organization partly driven by nonmonetary goals”, while the other one is “less organized and smaller organization absolutely focused on the money”.
- 60 Billion BitTorrent tokens, worth more than $7 million, were sold in under 15 minutes during the token sale on Binance. The token sale ran in two simultaneous sessions, one for buyers using Binance coin (BNB) and the second for buyers using Tron (TRX).
- Cryptocurrency exchange Binance has partnered with Simplex in order to implement purchases with Visa and MasterCard credit cards.
