With all eyes on Libra, Bitcoin drops deep below $10,000

During the first day of Facebook’s congressional hearing on Libra, the topic was largely Facebook itself, with cryptocurrencies and blockchain being a distant second.  And yet, most popular cryptocurrencies have been losing value as if the U.S. Senators have somehow been grilling them and not Facebook’s David Marcus, who’s about to spend some more unpleasant…


During the first day of Facebook’s congressional hearing on Libra, the topic was largely Facebook itself, with cryptocurrencies and blockchain being a distant second. 

And yet, most popular cryptocurrencies have been losing value as if the U.S. Senators have somehow been grilling them and not Facebook’s David Marcus, who’s about to spend some more unpleasant time at Congress today. 

Bitcoin dived sharply below $10,000 on Tuesday, reaching a low of $9,214 on cryptocurrency exchange Binance. Other coins followed suit: Ethereum, XRP, Bitcoin Cash and Litecoin have all dived to monthly lows, bringing the total market cap of all cryptocurrencies to less than $250 billion. 

The prices have stabilized somewhat on Wednesday, with Bitcoin trading at $9,593 at press time according to CoinMarketCap. But overall, the sentiment in the cryptocurrency world has quickly turned from bullish to bearish — or, at best, very cautiously optimistic. 

In a way, the pullback was expected, since Bitcoin rose from about $3,400 in February to just under $14,000 in June without a stronger correction. Since then, it’s been a rollercoaster, with price sharply rising an

TL;DR: The Complete Cryptocurrency Investment bundle is on sale for £19.21 as of June 25, saving you 94% on list price.


If we’re to believe every plot point from the movie The Social Network, Mark Zuckerberg allegedly stole the idea for Facebook from the Winklevoss twins and went on to become one of the youngest billionaires ever. 

Things ended up working out for the Winklevoss brothers, though. They received a $65 million settlement and competed in the 2008 Beijing Olympics, but they still weren’t a member of the prestigious billionaire club. That changed when they finally became billionaires thanks to Bitcoin. 

For the uninitiated, Bitcoin is a digital payment system and cryptocurrency that’s not tied to any country or bank. Bitcoin sometimes gets a bad rap for being associated with criminals and the dark web, but there are many advantages to using a decentralised system.

Even if you don’t have a $65 million to invest, you can still learn how to make mone

There are typos, and then there are typos

Someone appears to have made a mistake this morning when transferring the cryptocurrency ether (ETH), the younger sibling to bitcoin, from one digital wallet to another. After all, when moving around $134 dollars worth of digital currency, it hardly seems like anyone would intentionally pay a $2.6 million fee — and yet that’s exactly what happened. 

That’s right. Someone paid 10,668.73185 ETH, worth approximately $2.6 million at the time, to move 0.55 ETH from one wallet to another. The transaction, in all its painful glory, is visible on Etherscan — a tool for viewing and searching ETH transactions.
