Tech giant Microsoft warns crypto investors that a new malware that targets Windows users and steals sensitive financial data is now out in the wild.

In a series of tweets, the Microsoft Security Intelligence (MSI) has issued an alert that crypto holders who are also using Windows are at risk from a new malware dubbed as Anubis.

“A new info-stealing malware we first saw being sold in the cybercriminal underground in June is now actively distributed in the wild. The malware is called Anubis and uses code forked from Loki malware to steal system info, credentials, credit card details, cryptocurrency wallets.”

Though Anubis bears the name of an Android banking malware, MSI confirms that it’s completely unrelated. Microsoft’s threat protection team also explains that the malware appears to have a limited range of targets. 

“Anubis is deployed in what appears to be limited, initial campaigns that have so far only used a handful of known download URLs and C2 servers.”

In addition, Anubis appears to be manageable. Users can rely on Microsoft Defender to stop the malware on its tracks. 

“Microsoft Defender ATP detects the new malware as PWS:MSIL/Anubis.G!MTB. We will continue to monitor this threat for the possible expansion of these campaigns.”

IDEX Announces Multi-Chain Solution and Expands to Polkadot and Binance Smart Chain

Republished by Plato

Published

The popular decentralized cryptocurrency exchange (DEX), IDEX, has announced a multi-chain solution that is intended to expand its entire infrastructure to additional blockchains, namely, Polkadot and Binance Smart Chain.

IDEX Expands to Binance Smart Chain and Polkadot

In a press release shared with CryptoPotato, IDEX has revealed its multi-chain solution. Called Multiverse, it’s intended to expand the DEX’s infrastructure, including its layer-2 scaling and staking solutions to additional blockchains.

Its first implementation is going to be deployed on Polkadot’s layer 0 and Binance Smart Chain’s layer 1. This will enable the trade of digital assets on each of the platforms. In addition, IDEX token holders will also benefit from staking options starting from November 23rd.

It’s important to note that Polkadot will be used as layer 0. This means that IDEX will use a parachain of Polkadot in order to tap into its ecosystem. An example of this is Moonbeam. Speaking on the matter was IDEX co-founder and CEO Alex Wearn, who said:

In the past year, we’ve seen several new smart contract platforms emerge, each with a unique set of capabilities and assets. As these platforms grow, we’ll see increased demand for trading these assets and a need for non-custodial trading solutions that support these networks.

Attempts of Further Growth

It goes without saying that both Binance Smart Chain and Polkadot have gained serious popularity, offering an alternative to Ethereum’s network, which was troubled with congestion and high fees as the DeFi boom was at its peak.

IDEX hopes to bring its technology to emerging smart contract platforms. Through its Multiverse, the decentralized exchange aims to become a one-stop app for trading crypto assets on a range of different blockchains through a unified and secure platform.

All of its infrastructure, including its layer-2 system, will be further deployed on each layer-1 network. Independent assets will be issued on every new chain to support IDEX’s new layer2 economic model.

With this in mind, the first multi-chain IDEX tokens that are designated for Binance Smart Chain and Polkadot are IDXB and IDXP, respectively.

Analysts Eye New Top of $74,000 as Bitcoin Comes Within 3% of ATH

Republished by Plato

Published

on

In a move adding to the already monumental rally, Bitcoin prices touched $19,400 during late trading on Tuesday, November 24. This is just 3% away from its peak of $20K which came in December almost three years ago.

Since then, the asset has retreated sharply in a $700 pullback to the mid-$18K level where it currently trades. With momentum still in its favor, analysts and traders are eyeing the next possible peak.

CNBC Touts $74K Bitcoin

During the 2017/2018 rally, mainstream media outlets were renowned for spreading fear, uncertainty, and doubt (FUD) over something they really failed to truly comprehend. CNBC in particular came to be known as a counter trade signal as whenever the news outlet predicted a pump, BTC would dump and vice versa.

In its latest edition of Trading Nation, the channel interviewed a couple of traders who both had very positive things to say about the king of crypto.

Founder of TradingAnalysis.com, Todd Gordon, used Elliot Wave theory to measure herd mentality and market sentiment. He added that the fifth wave is just starting now which will result in a new all-time high in 2021. When asked about a price prediction he added;

“I can’t believe I’m going to go out on CNBC and say this, but it’s about $74,000. The Elliott wave goes very well with … Fibonacci multiples. If it does want to fall short, it can go to 61% of that target, which is only at $34,000.”

PayPal Driving Adoption

Mark Tepper, president and CEO of Strategic Wealth Partners, also commented on the trading show stating that before PayPal and other large corporations stepped in he treated Bitcoin like any other speculative investment, owning a small enough amount.

“The thing that’s always held me back from being an outright bitcoin bull has really been this lack of widespread adoption. But … adoption’s happening and those users, those PayPal and Square users, they’re buying more bitcoin than what’s actually hitting the market on a daily basis,”

He added that Bitcoin could be the Tesla of 2021, stating that it could possibly reach $100K by the end of next year. That certainly fits in with other models and predictions such as stock-to-flow which also predicts triple figures within the next year or so.

Bitcoin Chaser – November 25, 2020

ORYX and Softswiss partner for content distribution

ORYX and Softswiss have officially entered into a partnership together, with Softswiss adding ORYX’s exclusive RGS content to its aggregation platform. This means big things for the two parties, as has been evidenced by previous content alliances – like the partnership between EveryMatrix and FunFairTechnologies.  

SoftSwiss to Begin Integration

SoftSwiss will start integrating ORYX’s signature games, and RGS studio partners, onto its already impressive platform. ORYX currently works with a variety of other studios, as a way to produce its RGS offerings. 

Companies currently partnered with ORYX to produce the RGS suite are Kalamba Games, GAMOMAT, Golden Hero, Givme Games, and more. The RGS solution helps casino operators access a huge range of top quality games, which appeal to a wide player audience. 

It’s not all about ORYX though. SoftSwiss’ aggregation platform plays host to a whopping 10,000 casino games, making it an ideal partner for any casino looking to bring top quality content to its players as fast as possible. SoftSwiss also has a massive global footprint in the gambling scene, such as in CIS, Latin American and Europe. 

SoftSwiss and ORYX Each Bring Something to the Partnership 

Frankly, this partnership seems like a match made in casino heaven. The two brands are incredibly well suited to each other, with each bringing something unique to the table. 

SoftSwiss’ growth trajectory has seen the company secure 30 new providers over the last year, according to an official press release.

ORYX has also had a good run at it – securing the rights to provide 36 operators, including Microgaming, 888casino, Admiral, and Maxent, with their top quality offerings. 

2020: A Year for Provider Partnerships? 

As was previously mentioned, SoftSwiss and ORYX aren’t the first content distribution partnership this year. EveryMatrix and FunFairTechnologies have also coupled up, with FunFair now distributing its multiplayer games via the RGS Matrix server – complete with open architecture, streamline content integration, and deployment. 

FunFair aims to brighten up the standard iGaming experience, and its partnership with RGS Matrix helps them achieve that goal. RGS Matrix Managing Director Mathias Larsson, had this to say about the partnership: 

“Although we’ve signed various RGS Matrix agreements to date, this one with FunFair Games stands out in its goal to introduce a new gaming vertical to the iGaming sector.”

So, it seems that 2020 truly is the year for epic content partnerships in the casino industry. The iGaming world could be set to see some major shake-ups in the near future – so check back in at BitcoinChaser to get the lowdown, every day.
