BitMEX has released a network monitoring website that will initially focus on the upcoming Bitcoin Cash (BCH) hard fork. The research arm of Hong Kong-based cryptocurrency derivatives platform BitMEX, BitMEX Research, has launched a new network monitoring tool for Bitcoin (BTC) and Bitcoin Cash (BCH). The company said in a blog post on Monday that the platform, available at ForkMonitor.info, is useful for monitoring the situation during network upgrades (softforks or hardforks). BitMEX further described the tool as potentially useful in helping to detect unintentional consensus bugs, such as CVE-2018-17144, which was discovered back in September.

Tone Vays Got His BitMEX Account Suspended Tone Vays Got His BitMEX Account Suspended
BitMEX shut down Tone Vays trading account and closed all his positions. The market analyst and notorious trader just shorted 1 BTC at 5:1 leverage a month ago. The basis of the account freeze was the fact that Vays holds a U.S citizenship. The former Wall Street veteran and actual crypto market analyst and trader Tone Vays got his BitMEX account terminated on November 12 over suspicions of holding a U.S. citizenship. Vays who has over 10 years of experience in big financial corporations like Bear Stearns and JP Morgan Chase, took to Twitter to announce his account freeze, a little less than one month after making his first ever Bitcoin trade on the platform.

Bitmex shuts down US-based accounts: The speculations behind it and the possible relation to 1Broker Bitmex shuts down US-based accounts: The speculations behind it and the possible relation to 1Broker
Less than two months ago, the SEC made a surprise announcement where it stated that Marshall Islands-based cryptocurrency exchange 1Broker would soon to be shut down. The decision came suddenly, and the move was performed before users managed to withdraw their funds, causing them to lose millions in the process. Whether it is better prices, lower fees, or some other reason, foreign exchanges seem to be attracting the attention of many Americans, along with the minor KYC requirements, if at all (which can also be an advantage for some traders). This is also true for BitMEX, as it is one of a few Hong Kong-based exchanges that do not require KYC at all, as of writing these lines. This post was first seen by us on November 13, 2018 11:19 AM.

BitMEX CEO: Bear Market Could Endure Another 18 Months BitMEX CEO: Bear Market Could Endure Another 18 Months
The CEO of BitMEX, Arthur Hayes has stated that he believes the bear market could last for another 12 to 18 months based on previous experience, an abrupt departure from his previous prediction of $50,000 by the end of 2018. Arthur Hayes caused a stir back at the beginning of the summer when he appeared on CNBC's Fast Money programme, announcing his end-of-year prediction as a bullish $50,000 for the crypto asset. Despite the downward trends in trade volume and volatility, Hayes was confident that an aggressive bull market could emerge at any time before the end of the year and it would not take long for it to break through its previous all-time-high of just under $20,000 and head up towards $50,000.

Someone using the information provided in this video or article, including buying or selling, does it on his or her own risk.  It is important to note that margin or leveraged trading is considered very risky and speculative, so you should trade with caution. Always trade amounts you afford to completely lose. The biggest advantage of margin trading is that we can actually leverage a position without the need to hold the required bitcoin or crypto assets.  In the crypto world, it is not recommended to hold a large amount of bitcoins on an exchange. Better to hold them only on cold storage. This post was first seen by us on August 21, 2017 2:07 PM.
