$4.2 Million of Cryptopia’s Ethereum (ETH) Moved as Prices Stagnate

  • prices up 2.8 percent
  • 30,789 ETHs transferred from Cryptopia’s wallet to an unknown address.

$4.2 million worth of Ethereum (ETH) from Cryptopia is now at an unknown address Jan hack. At the same time, Ethereum prices are up but struggling to break above $150 and $170.

Ethereum Price Analysis

Fundamentals

There is a worrying trend in 2019. More exchanges are falling prey to hackers, and there should be averting steps. Aside from regulator involvement, exchange clients must take their security a notch higher. That means incorporating two-step verification in their login procedure and being extra vigilant to avoid phishing attacks.

Often, crypto attacks lead to losses and irreversible reputation damage to the affected exchange through client loss of confidence and made worse by an internet that never forgets. One of the many exchanges aside from BitHumb which is the latest is Cryptopia.

Their case was unique because it was sustained for several days but there was recovery. However, a majority did slide, and the community now notes that 30,789 ETHs moved from Cryptopia to an unknown wallet address. That amounts to roughly $4.2 million at spot rates. These funds, Elementus reports, were from the second breach. That’s when hackers control of 17k wallets. However, the damage was notably extensive for ETH holders.

“One possible explanation is that Cryptopia had their private keys stored in a single server with no redundancy. If the thieves managed to gain access to this server, they have downloaded the private keys before wiping them from the server, leaving Cryptopia unable to access their wallets.�

Candlestick Arrangement

Ethereum

At the time of press, Ethereum (ETH) is up 2.8 percent in the last . However, a noteworthy development is the failure of prices to close above the $150 level in a minor breakout .

Even so, our ETH/USD trade plan is valid, and bulls of Mar 5 are valid after Mar 27-29 expansions. Therefore, although we are net expecting gains above $170 towards $200, participation level remains low.

Besides, there is this hang from Feb 24 losses that can trigger a sell-off towards $100 if there is a meltdown below $130 or Mar 5 lows. All the same, once there is a high volume drive above $150 then risk-off traders can ramp up on dips with targets at our Nov-2018 breakout level at $170.

Technical Indicators

By yesterday’s close, average volume stood at 116k. After Mar 29 gains we expected that prices would edge higher with high volumes exceeding Mar 5 of 302k. As a result, unless otherwise, these conditions are correct, we shall take a neutral but bullish stand on price action.

Making ATM Bitcoin Payments via Lightning Network Is Becoming a Reality

bitcoin atm

Developer and researcher Felix Weis successfully executed, as a proof-of-concept, the world’s first ATM Bitcoin transaction on the Lightning Network.


World’s First Lightning-enabled Bitcoin ATM ‘Worked Fine’

On March 31, 2019, Weis publicly demonstrated a transaction via Lightning Network at a bitcoin ATM, during the Lightning Hackday, in Hong Kong, as shown in the video below.

Later, Weis described the transaction as:

Just a proof of concept ‘ up existing channel.’ Lots of bugs but two different mobile wallets worked fine.

Bitcoin Lightning Network Capacity Rises Over 1,000 BTC

The crypto industry is becoming increasingly enthusiastic the Lightning Network because it offers to drastically lower BTC’s transaction fees while making it possible to execute near-instant transactions.

Moreover, the demonstration of making ATM Bitcoin payments over the Lightning Network comes when Weiss Crypto Ratings has just upgraded Bitcoin from a “C-� to a “B-� (good) because technology had dramatically improved.

Weiss highlighted these conclusions in a comprehensive report on the crypto market entitled “Dark Shadows with a Bright Future, � published in March 2019.

Specifically, the Weiss evaluation considered four factors: rate, technology, risk, and reward. And, it highlighted the effect of the advent of the Lightning Network in the upgrade, as follows,

Bitcoin has been upgraded with the roll-out of its Lightning Network and is the best positioned to become a popular store of value for savers and investors.

The Lightning Network is a decentralized system where participants can implement trustless micropayment channels to perform one or transactions off-blockchain.

These channels reside off the Bitcoin blockchain. Transactions occur between these channels. Upon completion, transactions are transmitted, as a single transaction, to the blockchain. Then, the payment channel is closed, and transactions are transcribed onto the blockchain.

Therefore, regardless of the number of transactions performed, the BTC blockchain is accessed twice, at the opening of the channel and the closing of the channel.

The implementation of Lightning Network continues to gain momentum. As of this writing, according to 1ML, a Lightning Network monitoring website, the network now boasts 7,744 nodes and 39,129 channels. And the network capacity reaches over 1,059 BTC.

Will Bitcoin ATMs use Lightning Network to cut costs in the future? Let us know in the comments below!
