What is happening between SHIB and Vitalik? | TICKER VIEWS

Ethereum creator Vitalik

Vitalik donates $1B worth of Shiba Inu coin to India

Firstly a bit of context: last week, Etherum’s co-founder Vitalik Buterin donated $1 billion worth of Shiba Inu coin to a COVID-19 relief fund in India.

But the massive donation spooked buyers, causing Shiba Inu Coin to plummet.

Shib Informer said in a private chat that many people distrust the Ethereum founder, for “no good reason.”

They added that buyers were becoming increasingly concerned that the currency is at the ‘mercy of a millionaire kid now,’ much like Dogecoin is beholden to Elon Musk.

However, SHIB welcomed Vitalik’s actions, saying that he is “not dumping our token” by “acknowledging a humanitarian crisis” in a recent open letter.

Vitalik destroys 90% of his SHIB coins

Vitalik has since burned 90% of his $SHIB wallet, now owning 5% rather than 45%. The currency has since risen approximately 12%.

The owner of the Shib Informer Twitter account said in a private message:

“Imagine that you own half of the dollars in the world, and you put them all in a room put gasoline and burn it. The remaining money in the world will rise in price, right? That is what happened.”

What is Shiba Inu Coin?

The “Shiba Inu coin” also known as SHIB coin or $SHIB is rising in popularity. Much like Dogecoin – it started out as a meme, but now crypto investors are seeing some potential.

Shiba was founded by the mysterious Ryoshi, in 2020. 

Shibu Inu coin can be bought as tokens directly from their website, or through popular third parties like the Uni-swap platform.

Should you be staying away from crypto?

Published

on

Major investment banking firm, Goldman Sachs has warned its consumers to stay away from cryptocurrencies as the price of Bitcoin soars above USD$40,000 for the first time in weeks.

In a report released by the Sachs’ Wealth Management Division, the company says digital coins are “not a viable investment”

Goldman Sachs cites high energy consumption associated with mining coins as a reason to avoid the sector.

The report also details the possibility of technological advances which may make blockchain technology redundant and the risk of greater regulatory oversight.

The report says “after analysing various valuation methodologies and applying our multi-factor strategic asset allocation model, we have concluded that cryptocurrencies are not a viable investment for our clients’ diversified portfolios.”

“Musk sends one tweet and moves the dial entirely”

Meanwhile, Market Strategist Daniel Weiner joined Ticker News earlier and spoke about Elon Musk’s latest tweet that sent Bitcoin soaring.

More than four million Australians will invest in Crypto in the next four months.

Looking at the number’s, cryptocurrencies are on the rise.

That’s the consensus of a new survey of 1,027 Australians by global researcher YouGov, published by The AFR.

More than four million Australians are likely to buy crypto currencies like Bitcoin in the next 12 months, according to the published research.

One in five Australians “have owned cryptocurrency at some point”, and some 14 per cent currently holding an exposure in their portfolio.

Where is Crypto sitting in the markets?

Bitcoin tests $40K levels following positive comments from Tesla’s CEO Elon Musk and hedge fund manager Paul Tudor Jones.

The world’s largest cryptocurrency by market capitalisation is up about 20 per cent over the past e seven days.

Meanwhile, the S&P 500 rose 0.2% to a record high as of 4:03 p.m. New York time and the Nasdaq 100 rose 0.9% to a record high.

The Australian sharemarket has shot higher at the open, soaring to a new intraday record high during the opening minutes of trading.

Financials dropped as JPMorgan Chase Chief Executive Officer Jamie Dimon suggested Wall Street’s pandemic-era trading boom could be drawing to a close.

China crypto crackdown sees over 1,100 arrested

Published

on

Police in China have arrested over 1,100 people on money-laundering charges, claiming they used cryptocurrency to help them evade the law. 

The arrests come as authorities in China step up their crackdown on cryptocurrency trading.

Reports say the money launderers charged their criminal clients a commission of 1.5% to 5% to convert illegal proceeds into virtual currencies via crypto exchanges.

Last month, three industry bodies banned crypto-related financial and payment services, and the State Council vowed to clamp down on Bitcoin mining and trading.

The public security ministry confirmed police had busted more than 170 criminal groups involved in using cryptocurrencies to launder money.

The money launderers charged their criminal clients a commission of 1.5% to 5% to convert illegal proceeds into virtual currencies via crypto exchanges.

China continues crackdowns

China’s State Council ordered a tough crackdown on telco fraud in October 2020.

Executives from two of the largest crypto exchanges that provide services to Chinese investors assisted police with their inquiries.
