In September, Bitcoin Prices continued to rebound and stood at the $10000 mark again, up 67% in half a month.
The sharp rise and fall of bitcoin will bring about a discussion of whether bitcoin is a bubble. All these discussions come from the perspective of speculation. The biggest feeling of reporters during the Spring Festival is that bitcoin has completely broken through the circle of geeks into ordinary people's vision, though they do not all know what bitcoin and block chain are, but they can not. They have begun to pay attention to the information of bitcoin trading platform, just like browsing today's headlines, which is a potential change, maybe they have not noticed.
Behind this is the rise of bitcoin trading platform, but it is also accompanied by uneven distribution of interests, greedy self-defense, and platform running.
Bitcoin trading platform is full of chaos: the founder is arrested and the platform runs
In the morning, Jon montrol, the founder of bitfund, the bitcoin trading platform, was arrested. Geoffrey Berman, a Manhattan state prosecutor, said in a statement: "on the basis of the allegations, the defendant lied repeatedly in the affidavit and misled SEC staff to avoid personal liability for the bitcoin losses of thousands of customers."
According to criminal proceedings, hackers stole 6000 bitcoin from weexchange in 2013 by using bitfunder's programming code vulnerability to make up profits. Prosecutors also pointed out that during the SEC's involvement in the investigation, Mount Lowe provided false screenshots of bitcoin assets, denying that hackers had access to them.
According to verifiable information, Mount rock has a weexchange Australia Limited company that provides bitcoin deposit and transaction services. At the same time, he has opened bitfund.com, which allows users to sell virtual shares of business entities in exchange for bitcoin.
Reporters log in to the website and find that the website page cannot be displayed.
On the same day, the transaction was stopped on the etherdelta platform. The message shows that the reason for the stop of the transaction on the website lies in the uneven distribution of centralized equity issues. Chen Jun, the actual controller, has run away, which is also the first decentralized trading platform in the currency circle Up to now, the transaction value of EDT in German currency has plummeted, and the price on its official website has dropped to US $0.03. At present, many investors have asked to withdraw money to protect their rights.
With etherdelta as a completely decentralized exchange, when trading, users do not need to register by real name, only need to have a metamask account, and then trading can be easily realized. However, the operation of Yide has been criticized and questioned for a long time. Due to its poor user experience and security loopholes, it caused a huge stir on September 24, 2017. The reason is that the user currency is stolen due to the security problems of the platform.
A topic worthy of attention is that with bitcoin gradually coming into the public's vision, a large number of trading websites have also been born, and China's bitcoin trading platforms have grown from 4-5 to 16-17. Although the regulatory authorities closed some bitcoin trading platforms on September 4, 2017, many of them still continue to engage in bitcoin under the international trade names At the same time, in order to seize customers and market traffic, network attacks between platforms, ID theft and coin stealing have become a key factor in the price fluctuation of bitcoin.
At present, the central government has put forward the block chain and digital currency promotion plan, which more affirms the industry and believes that China is not far from allowing exchanges to exist.
