🗞 The Era of Central Bank Digital Currencies Is Within Reach

“CBDC, not bitcoin” is the new “blockchain, not bitcoin.”

Since 2014, discussions of a publicly accessible digital payment vehicle issued by a central bank have matured significantly. Central bank digital currencies (CBDCs) have been the center of many high-level discussions, notably at the Bank for International Settlements (BIS) and the International Monetary Fund (IMF).

The breadth of reports from experienced central bankers validates blockchain technology in a way that crypto-anarchists, armchair blockchain economists, and even millennials that got smoked by buying cryptocurrencies last Thanksgiving (2017), can collectively be proud of.

🗞 Block 7,080,000: Ethereum Devs Propose Activation Point for Next Hard Fork

Members of ethereum’s open-source development team have reached agreement on an activation time for Constantinople, a proposed code change designed to give users the option to update the blockchain with additional features.

Speaking at a bi-weekly core developer meeting Friday, the developers assembled agreed on block 7,080,000 on the ethereum blockchain as an activation point at which users would be able to elect to upgrade to the new code. Put simply, should users choose to accept the change by upgrading their software, the update would go live when the block is mined.

🗞 Bipartisan Bitcoin Bills to Step up Consumer Protection in the U.S.

The Virtual Currency Consumer Protection Act of 2018 and the U.S. Virtual Currency Market and Regulatory Competitiveness Act of 2018 task U.S. financial regulators with researching means to protect retail investors from price manipulation, while staking the global economic powerhouse’s share in the evolving financial technology.

🗞 Gemini Adds Support for Bitcoin Cash Trading and Custody on the ABC Network

Cryptocurrency exchange Gemini announced support for Bitcoin Cash (BCH) custody and trading today with a post on its official Medium blog, Dec. 8. Gemini, which is based in the United States, was founded in 2015 by the Winklevoss brothers.

The exchange pointed out that, at the moment, it will “only be providing support for the Bitcoin ABC network” which is identified on the platform as “Bitcoin Cash with ticker: BCH.”

Brazilian Bitcoin Exchange Sends User $35M in Bug-Induced Error

Accidental millionaire Kaique Nunes has a bug to thank after his withdrawal request of 500 reals ($128) erroneously returned a cool 137 million reals ($35.13 million) from Brazilian bitcoin exchange Bitcambio. Nunes was not too eager to part with his overnight millions when Bitcambio started contacting to effect a reversal of the transaction, suspecting an elaborate scam.

STEEM Trading Update by my friend @cryptopassion

Here is the chart of yesterday :

Here is the current chart :

I don't see anymore big support on the STEEM except some supports around 0.10$. So most of the time, a market without support go test these levels. What to say more, technical anaylsis is becoming difficult as we are navigating in levels that we didn't experienced so much before. So we must see first how the market will react and build a logic from it.

I am now bearish US markets (have been for a couple months) I wonder if the US market bear (maybe crash) will move some money back into the cryptos?

I have issues thinking that cryptos will go up if a crisis hit.
But the slowing hike of US rates should help cryptos to go up for now.
Take care
