Kiyosaki urged to buy bitcoin in anticipation of “fake money invasion”

Kiyosaki Investment Tips

Robert Kiyosaki, the writer and author of the bestseller “Rich Daddy, Poor Daddy” called on Twitter users to buy bitcoin (BTC) in anticipation of the “invasion of counterfeit money”.

According to Kiyosaki, after the recent closure of three U.S. banks at once — Silvergate Bank, Silicon Valley Bank and Signature Bank — the U.S. Federal Reserve (Fed) will start printing dollars to support the “sick” economy.

“The ‘bailout’ begins. More counterfeit money is flooding the ailing economy. Still recommending the same solution. Buy more G [gold], S [silver], BC [bitcoin]. Be careful. There’s an emergency landing ahead,” the writer advised.

Kiyosaki’s investment advice

Kiyosaki has repeatedly warned over the past few years that financial markets would collapse and said that precious metals and bitcoin were the only assets in which to save money. In particular, he predicted bitcoin would rise to $500,000 by 2025 because of a loss of faith in the U.S. dollar.

The writer repeatedly criticized the U.S. financial system, saying that they do not trust the administration of U.S. President Joe Biden, the Treasury Department, the Federal Reserve and Wall Street.

U.S. authorities urge calm

But after the collapse of Silvergate Bank, Signature Bank and Silicon Valley Bank, Biden assured American citizens that the banking system was safe.

“All customers who had deposits at these banks can rest assured that they will be protected and will have access to their money as of today,” the U.S. leader said.

Biden assured in his address that there would be no loss to taxpayers.” Deposits will be available to affected employers and small businesses, while investors and bondholders will not receive similar government support.

Silicon Valley Bank was shut down by the California regulator after it didn’t deal with a surge in outflows. The New York regulator also closed Signature Bank on Sunday “to protect depositors.” Both financial institutions overlap with the crypto industry, with Signature Bank working with Stablecoin companies and Silicon Valley Bank working with tech startups and venture capital firms.

Cryptotraders lost more than $250,000,000 in liquidations after Fed rate hike

Crypto traders lost

Cryptotraders had a tough day: almost 68,000 positions were liquidated on exchanges in the last 24 hours, and the total volume of liquidations exceeded $257,000,000. All this happened against the news of the US Federal Reserve’s rate hike and another Securities and Exchange Commission regulatory action against cryptocurrencies.

Cryptotraders lost $132,000,000 in BTC

Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Ripple were the leaders in the number of forcibly closed positions. BTC liquidations totaled almost $132,000,000; Ethereum traders lost $51,000,000. XRP positions accounted for about $8,000,000 of liquidations. Bitmex exchange executed the largest order of $7.39,000,000.

Cryptocurrency market capitalization has declined 2% in the last 24 hours, but is still above the $1 trillion mark.

The weekly CoinShares report also recorded a massive outflow of funds for six consecutive weeks. During that period, nearly $500,000,000 was withdrawn from cryptocurrency platforms, with $113,000,000 coming from bitcoin. Analysts at the company believe the outflow is due to liquidity needs during the banking crisis rather than a negative outlook. The company mentions that a similar scenario was seen in March 2020 amid a COVID-19-induced panic.

Regulators continue to hunt the cryptobusiness

Another reason for the increased volatility in the market has been harsh action from U.S. regulators. Last night it became known that the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission sued cryptomagnate Justin Sun, accusing him of fraud and market manipulation.

The SEC also issued a notice of wrongdoing against Coinbase, the largest U.S. cryptocurrency exchange. The securities regulator sued Coinbase Global Inc, for some of the products it offers.

We previously reported that Bitcoin (BTC) tests $28,000, but onchain metrics urge caution.

Binance was caught circumventing KYC to register Chinese clients

Binance China customer registrations

Employees of the cryptocurrency exchange Binance help clients from China to bypass compliance and verification. CNBC writes about it, citing hundreds of corporate emails from exchange employees on Discord and Telegram. It is reported that Binance has helped over 200,000 users register, bypassing its own security system. One case describes correspondence between a user from China and a Binance employee.

The employee under the pseudonym yaya.z suggested the user from China turn on a VPN, register as a Taiwanese resident and then return the location to China. Binance employees also advise customers not to use VPN services from the U.S., Hong Kong and Singapore, because the exchange does not provide services in those regions, writes CNBC. At the same time, Binance freely processes applications from U.S. email providers like Gmail or Outlook for registration.

The exchange even offers specialized mobile applications for customers from China. A CNBC reporter could download a special mobile application from Binance via email. At the same time, no VPN was needed to download the app, as the download was conducted through the domain of binance[.]com. It is also alleged that the exchange still verifies users with Chinese phone numbers.

An exchange spokesperson denied the existence of a special Chinese version of the mobile application. The exchange also added that it has improved the system to identify users from banned regions. CNBC notes that after providing evidence, Binance removed employee messages from corporate chats to circumvent KYC.

We previously reported that the Ethereum (ETH) price crossed the $1,800 mark, opening the way to $2,000.

Why cryptoanalysts expect bitcoin to fall

letizo News



cryptoanalysts expect bitcoin to fall

The market remains in a bearish trend and bitcoin (BTC) will resume its fall and test $16,000. There are two reasons:

  • Altcoins are near serious resistance;

  • The BUSD and USDC stablecoins are manipulating the market.

The first statement can be confirmed or disproved by a technical analysis of the cryptocurrency market, but there is not enough additional information for the second.

The market capitalization of altcoins (ALTCAP) does hold nearly $605 billion of resistance. Although ALTCAP has risen above it several times, it didn’t develop above this area.

However, the daily RSI has broken through the bearish divergence trendline (green line). Such a breakout often precedes significant reversals into a bullish trendline. As a result, ALTCAP will move higher towards the $680B resistance area. If not, ALTCAP could fall back to the $518B support area.

There are also those who argue that bitcoin will test the $10000-$11000 area because there is a CME price gap that needs to be filled. The gap refers to the difference between the closing price of bitcoin futures on the Chicago Mercantile Exchange (CME) on Friday and the opening price on the following Monday.

We previously reported that Hong Kong has allocated another $50,000,000 to the crypto industry.
