Coinbase halts Bitcoin SV trading after yet another 51% attack

Published

on

Bitcoin SV is in trouble once again after Coinbase announced that it will be halting BSV trading on the platform. This update came on the back of a string of attacks the network has been facing since late June. As per the announcement made by the exchange,

“Due to the 51% attack that has occurred on BSV today we are stopping all BSV trading.”

Bitcoin SV was the target of a massive 51% attack early on Tuesday, an attack which was called “the largest since launch” by Blockchair developer Nikita Zhavoronkov. He further claimed on Twitter that the reorganization was 100 blocks deep and wiped out 570k transactions.

The attack was first brought to the community’s notice by CoinMetrics’ Lucas Nuzzi. Arguing that “some serious hashing power” was unleashed on the network early on Tuesday, he revealed that up to three versions of the chain were being mined simultaneously across pools.

Coinmetrics later confirmed that the firm’s own blockchain security monitoring tool FARUM identified the attack.

The Bitcoin Association also confirmed the incident on Twitter, recommending node operators to mark the fraudulent chain as invalid. It’s worth noting, however, that at the time of writing, the Association had released yet another statement on the same.

It said,

“…. believes that this is the same attacker that previously initiated block re-organisation attacks against the BSV network on June 24 and July 1, 6 & 9, 2021.”

Coinbase’s action made waves in the community. However, such steps are perhaps routine for the network now. In the past, BSV has been dropped by top exchanges like Gemini and Binance. It also saw several exchanges block withdrawals and deposits for the asset as liquidity providers suspended access to the token’s liquidity. This was preceded by more attacks in the last week of June and the first week of July.

As far as Coinbase is concerned, the exchange is yet to reveal when it might restart trading services for Bitcoin SV. With many in the community at sixes and sevens, it’s unlikely it’s going to be anytime soon.

Looking To Pull An El Salvador, Spain Considers Bill To Allow Mortgage Payments In Crypto

Looking To Pull An El Salvador, Spain Considers Bill To Allow Mortgage Payments In Crypto

Advertisement &  & 

Cryptocurrency and blockchain are becoming quite mainstream as of this year and it’s likely that just about any financial transaction will be able to be completed via the use of crypto in the next few years. Of course, there are bodies pushing against the integration given the lack of regulations and the fact that it could help finance illicit acts.

However, the crypto wave is continuing to grow despite all of the recent adversity. And, according to Spanish paper 20 Minutos, Spain could begin to allow persons to pay their mortgages with crypto pretty soon.

The publication reports that Spanish lawmakers are perusing a proposal that would see to the above. The Digital transformation Law, as it’s called, would make it so that crypto and blockchain become legitimized, while tax incentives are being considered for institutions keen on working under the artificial intelligence umbrella, which would include blockchain tech.

Spain’s incumbent People’s Party is intent on having the country’s banking infrastructure catch up to the times in terms of tech and will promote the use of digital currencies, as well as various other transformative technologies. The proposal suggests that the country’s whole mortgage system should undergo reform, in addition to having crypto payments possible.

El Salvador Took The Lead

This comes on the back of El Salvador’s move to accept bitcoin as legal tender. The Central American nation is very pro-crypto in such regard and it appears they have set the stage for other countries to naturalize digital assets, so to speak.

Where Spain is concerned, the current proposal advises that banks use blockchain as a means of operating the mortgage system while making use of smart contracts for insurance.

“Introduction into the mortgage system – it also proposes that banks use Blockchain technology to manage mortgages, insurance and speed up compensation – it proposes to extend it to insurance policies, with ‘smart contracts’ with conditions depending on the procedures to be followed, the verification processes and potential incidents.“

El Salvador making bitcoin legal tender was a huge move and we aren’t yet to see the full scope, although the country’s population stands at just 6.5 million so they aren’t expected to have that great of an impact on a worldwide scale. Spain is a different case, however.

Victory Capital joins list of firms seeking SEC’s approval for crypto-ETF

Published

on

Victory Capital Holdings, Inc., a global asset management firm listed on NASDAQ, today announced its intention to launch Victory Hashdex Nasdaq Crypto Index Fund LLC. This is a private fund that tracks the Nasdaq Crypto Index (NCI). This company will function under Victory Capital Management Inc, which is an adviser to the VictorShares ETFs.

According to reports, it has filed an initial registration statement with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission [SEC] to offer strategy in an exchange-traded fund [ETF] vehicle.

As per Mannik Dhillon, CFA, CAIA, President of VictoryShares & Solutions,

“We’re confident we’re on the verge of fast and remarkable advancements in this arena, and the Victory Hashdex Nasdaq Crypto Index Fund, along with a potential future ETF offering, will provide our clients with convenient exposure to multiple coins while introducing a new asset class for their portfolios.”

The company claims its private fund is unique in the digital asset investment landscape due to its multi-coin access, daily liquidity at NAV, and Nasdaq index governance. However, as an ETF applicant, it is just another in a list of dozens awaiting the SEC’s approval.

Grayscale, for instance, has been in the queue for a long time. It is intent on its goal of converting its premium Bitcoin offering into an ETF. In fact, it recently appointed a 20-year ETF veteran Dave Lavalle as its first Global Head of ETFs.

Will the SEC bend? It’s hard to tell. Especially since as per SEC Chief Gary Gensler, the Bitcoin-based product will be passed only with strict rules in place. Compliance with SEC norms will be crucial for any and every institution seeking a Bitcoin ETF going forward.
