BeInCrypto CEO Alena Afanaseva to Speak at WomenTech Global Conference 2021

BeInCrypto is happy to announce that CEO Alena Afanaseva has been selected as a speaker at the WomenTech Global Conference 2021. WomenTech is aimed at supporting women in tech, namely engineers, UX designers, and digital marketers. 

Afanaseva is a co-founder and CEO of BeInCrypto, a publication dedicated to cryptocurrencies and fintech since 2018. The website’s goal is to inject transparency into an industry plagued with fake news, unlabeled sponsorships, and paid articles made to look like honest journalism.

Afanaseva has worked as a financial analyst in the past and served as managing editor of the Currency Speculator magazine. She has deep knowledge of macroeconomics, monetary policy, fundamental analysis of crypto assets, and blockchain technology.

Afanaseva is also well versed in the current state of crypto regulation in Eastern Europe and the Middle East.

Earlier this spring, Afanaseva was appointed a lecturer at the Plekhanov Russian University of Economics, the leading and oldest financial university in Russia, to deliver a course titled “The NFT Market: Introduction into Digital Art.” The course delves into the history of non-fungible tokens and the technical aspects of creating an NFT, as well as digital galleries and the methods used in crypto art valuation.

Afanaseva’s talk will be on how to build a multinational media company in blockchain and crypto. Topics to be covered include, how to build a strong multinational team, how blockchain technology is changing our present and future, and the principles of trustful journalism. 

“Over the past year, we’ve covered news in ten languages, hired people from 20 countries, with almost 40% of them being women. I must add that the crypto industry is usually dominated by men, but not in our case. Blockchain is changing the world, while we’re changing the world of blockchain. We can empower it with technology, education, and career opportunities to positively change the world,” Afanaseva said.

Becoming the leader of a multinational news company is challenging in many regards, but becoming the leader of a media company in blockchain and crypto brings with it unique roadblocks. In her talk, Afanaseva will speak about her personal experience building an industry-leading crypto news company.

One of the more important topics will be on how to recruit and manage a team in excess of 100 people, who write daily in ten languages about breaking crypto news. She’ll also speak about the principles of trustworthy journalism, market potential, emerging technologies, and how they influence our day-to-day life.

The WomenTech Global Conference will launch on June 7 and run through June 11. Afanaseva’s talk will be on June 8 at 6:10 am EDT.

Crypto Trader’s $20 Investment Explodes to $1,184,154,683,482 on Coinbase – But He’s Not Cashing Out

After investing $20 in the crypto markets, one crypto trader just woke up to a one-trillion dollar fortune in his Coinbase account.

Chris Williamson, a nurse from Georgia, says he invested $20 in Rocket Bunny (BUNNY) cryptocurrency on Coinbase last week. After the trade, his portfolio balance soon skyrocketed to a staggering $1,184,154,683,482.

On paper, this made Williamson the richest man in the world.

‘I woke up, it’s like 9:00 a.m. and I always check my phone to check how my crypto to see how it’s doing and I’m just like, ‘Naw, I’m sleeping.

I look at it again and I’m like… at that point I fall out of my bed, literally.”

Despite the big balance, Williamson says he was unable to cash out or send the crypto to a private wallet. He contacted both Coinbase and Rocket Bunny. A representative from Coinbase told him they were looking into the problem, while Rocket Bunny did not immediately respond.

Coinbase later confirmed the trader’s massive balance was a glitch, and would be corrected. 

This isn’t the first time the crypto exchange giant had a glitch in its system. Back in April 2020, crypto analyst Captain Scio pointed out a massive blunder on the Coinbase Pro app, showing that someone had purchased 42,085 BTC, worth $306 million at the time, for just 18 cents. 

Williamson is keeping a positive attitude on the situation.

“The ongoing joke right now between me and my friends in Coinbase and one of the emails I sent them was like: ‘Look, I need y’all to let me know what’s going on because I got a mega-yacht company ready to build me a penguin-shaped yacht.

‘So, you know, let me know.’”

BUNNY is a utility token on Binance Smart Chain. It’s used to power the broader Rocket Bunny ecosystem of dApps (decentralized applications), which includes Rocket Drop (launchpad), Rocket Swap (DEX) and Rocket Labs (testing ground).

PayPal and Visa Lead $300M Funding for Blockchain Capital

Republished by Plato

Published

on

Blockchain Capital remains a major tech backer in the DLT space with investments in numerous crypto and DLT projects.

Fund V with $300M Funding

According to a press release published on Monday (June 22, 2021), Blockchain Capital has closed funding for its Fund V LP. The capital raise reportedly drew participation from several high-profile backers including global payment giants Visa and PayPal.

Capped at $300 million, Blockchain Capital’s latest fund was oversubscribed likely pointing to the continued appetite for DLT-related funding despite the current crypto market downturn. Apart from Visa and PayPal, university endowments, hedge funds, family offices, and pension funds also participated in the capital raise.

Bart Stephens, co-founder and managing partner at Blockchain Capital commented on the closure of the fifth VC fund, stating:

“We are incredibly honored to welcome a world class group of investors into Fund V who appreciate the value of a firm dedicated to a single industry. As founders ourselves, we know how hard it is to build companies, protocols and, indeed, a whole new industry.”

Spokespersons for both Visa and PayPal stated that their support for Blockchain Capital was part of efforts to boost innovation in digital finance. According to Jose Fernandez da Ponte, vice president and general manager of blockchain, crypto and digital currencies at PayPal:

“Investing in Blockchain Capital’s new fund allows us to engage with the entrepreneurs driving the future of the decentralized economy and the new wave of financial services.”

Serial Blockchain Backer

Blockchain Capital is a serial investor in the crypto and DLT space. The company’s portfolio of projects cuts across several facets of the emerging industry including United States-based exchange giants like Coinbase and Kraken.

Blockchain Capital’s investment portfolio also extends to the decentralized finance market arena, backing projects like Aave, UMA, and Nexus Mutual.

Since securing about $2 million in funding from Blockchain Capital and other investors back in May 2018, OpenSea has been able to attract additional investments, including a $23 million injection as reported by CryptoPotato back in March.

Binance Coin’s recovery hinged on this

Republished by Plato

Published

on

Weekly losses piled up at 30% for Binance Coin on the back of high selling pressure persistent across the global cryptocurrency market. During this period, prices steadily declined from the upper ceiling of $380 to its press time level of $264. With bears in control for the moment, BNB would most likely register more losses over the coming hours. However, this could set the stage for the re-emergence of buyers back into the mix.

Binance Coin’s woes were elevated once bulls failed to defend $325 support from bearish pressure. A further 20% was noted from this defensive line as BNB seemed to shift towards the $260-mark. Prices were now below their 4-hour 50, 100, and 200 Simple moving average lines. An argument can be made that BNB’s short-term movement and hopes of a brief recovery now hinged on $260 support moving forward.

Reasoning

Visible Range’s point of control lay around $260. This meant that BNB saw peak interest by traders at this price level in the given timeframe- a reading that strengthened the area’s defense. Moreover, Relative Strength Index traded in the oversold region from where a reversal can be expected. According to the price-sensitive Stochastic RSI, some bullish resurgence had already seeped in as the index moved north after a bullish crossover. Successfully defending $260 from bears could even result in a minor jump back towards the $325-mark.

However, traders must be wary of an extended sell-off as well. Bearish momentum was building up on the Awesome Oscillator which showed no signs of a reversal just yet. A bearish outcome would likely drag BNB back towards its demand zone of $210-236

Conclusion 

Selling pressure was dominant in the BNB market but there was a glimmer of hope at its press time price of $260. A bounce back in this region could provide a short-term push back towards $325. However, the chances of a further drawdown cannot be overlooked as well. A breakdown could see BNB trade within its demand zone of $210-236 over the coming days.
