Exploring Topic Coindesk

Coindesk is one of the oldest and best established cryptocurrency news sites. Founded in 2013 by BitPay entrepreneur Shakil Khan, CoinDesk quickly established itself as a reliable source of crypto news and features.

One of CoinDesk's most popular early features was the Bitcoin Price Index (BPI). The BPI allowed investors to have a broad idea of the Bitcoin price being practiced in many different markets. In 2013 cryptocurrency trading was in its infancy and accurate data was especially difficult to obtain.

Every year CoinDesk releases a thorough cryptocurrency report called the State of Bitcoin. Coindesk is currently owned by Digital Currency Group, a venture capital firm from New York.

Ethereum Archives - CoinDesk Ethereum Archives - CoinDesk
December 23, 2018 9:38 PM Discuss The price of ether fell to 19-month lows just over $80 today and is now down 94% from its January peak. Until there are well-designed privacy features for enterprise applications on public chains, it's premature for firms to use them, says Amber Baldet. The SEC's settlement with the founder of EtherDelta is likely the first of many enforcement actions to come against crypto token exchanges. An Australian researcher says wide disagreements about underlying prices and lack of short options keep cryptocurrency prices alive. Ether, litecoin, dash and neo are now down year-over-year and trading at their lowest total in over 12 months.

December 23, 2018 11:14 AM Discuss Bitcoin is looking increasingly bullish on a key technical chart following its strong move above $4,000. Bitcoin's recovery rally faces sturdy resistance at $4,400 here are three reasons why. Bitcoin's relief rally gathered pace on Thursday, pushing prices to two-week highs above the psychological hurdle of $4,000. Bitcoin's price crossed key resistance yesterday, boosting the prospects of a stronger rally above $4,000. Bitcoin could be in for a stronger recovery rally ahead of New Year as the recent major sell-off looks to be fading. Bitcoin is still struggling to find the bottom of a bear market on the anniversary of its $20,000 all-time record price high.

It's unlikely the CFTC will act in time for ICE to launch Bakkt as planned on Jan. 24, CoinDesk has learned. A bill introduced this week in Congress takes a hard line on Iran's efforts to develop its own sovereign cryptocurrency. Journalist-owned news site Popula has stored an entire U.S. news article on the ethereum blockchain, permanently archiving the story.

Crypto Custody State Street Is Waiting on a Client Shift, Exec Says Crypto Custody  State Street Is Waiting on a Client Shift, Exec Says
December 02, 2018 2:13 PM Discuss State Street, one the largest institutional custodians on the planet, said there is no sense of urgency at the moment, at least from clients for the firm to move into safeguarding crypto assets. Speaking at the American Banker BlockFS conference in New York on Thursday, Jay Biancamano, State Street's managing director for digital product development and innovation, acknowledged there is a high level of interest?, however. There is no sense of urgency on the part of our clients to move into these assets right now. When they do, we want to meet them there, said Biancamano. There is a very high level of interest but no need to move because currently none of our clients are looking for us to house these assets in custody.

How Silvergate Became the Leading Bank for Crypto Startups How Silvergate Became the Leading Bank for Crypto Startups
December 01, 2018 3:13 PM Discuss It's been a long journey for Alan Lane since the Silvergate Bank CEO bought his first bitcoin in 2013. That was around the time his small, deposit-hungry bank, based in La Jolla, California, took on its first crypto exchange as a client. It was a gutsy move for a financial institution, since at the time most bankers viewed bitcoin as either a fad, a scam or a reputational risk if they had even heard of it all. Speaking Friday at the BlockFS conference in New York, Lane recalled: Here were these companies that were raising money from reputable [venture capital] firms. They weren't doing anything illegal, they weren't doing anything immoral. And yet, they were struggling to maintain bank accounts. So I put our need for deposits together with their need for banking services.

Ethereum Developers Are Quietly Planning an Accelerated Tech Roadmap Ethereum Developers Are Quietly Planning an Accelerated Tech Roadmap
November 23, 2018 4:16 PM Discuss Ethereum developers are quietly discussing a previously undisclosed upgrade that could boost the capabilities of the technology more aggressively in the short-term. Specifically, the minutes from four private meetings that took place at the Devcon4 conference at the end of October, refer to an upgrade named ethereum 1x, possibly to be activated in June 2019. An internal document containing the minutes was published to Github by an engineer of the ethereum virtual machine, Greg Colvin, on Friday. While previously undisclosed, the minutes have been verified by one attendee who wished to remain anonymous. They told CoinDesk that developers believe the proposals are too early-stage to be discussed publicly. Other developers did not respond to requests for comment.

Lightning-Powered Blog Sees 20,000 Bitcoin Micropayments in 7 Months Lightning-Powered Blog Sees 20,000 Bitcoin Micropayments in 7 Months
November 23, 2018 11:50 AM Discuss Few projects have done as much to explore crypto micropayments as the year-old Yalls blog created by Lightning Labs developer Alex Bosworth. From April through early November, Bosworth said, blog participants have processed nearly 20,000 invoices with the Lightning Network, a bitcoin scaling solution that makes micropayments feasible by keeping them off the blockchain, sidestepping network transaction fees. It costs roughly one cent to read a Yalls article, half a cent to leave a comment on a post, and 10 cents to react to a post with an emoji. Publishing an article costs around 6 cents. One nice thing about micropayments is that it brings back anonymity to the web, Bosworth told CoinDesk. I'm really a fan of the idea that your identity doesn't have to be tied to a username and password.

Bitcoin Price Eyes Double Bottom Reversal After $4K Defense - CoinDesk Bitcoin Price Eyes Double Bottom Reversal After $4K Defense - CoinDesk
November 23, 2018 8:01 AM Discuss Bitcoins defense of key long-term support for the second time in four days is a positive sign for a potential recovery rally. The leading cryptocurrency by market value fell below $4,242 (low of Wednesday's inside-day candle) in the Asian trading hours, putting the bears back into the driver's seat. As a result, BTC fell below the 200-week exponential moving average (EMA) of $4,182 earlier today. The breach of the EMA support, however, may have trapped the bears on the wrong side of the market, as BTC is currently trading at $4,330 on Bitstamp, having clocked an intraday low of $4,061 earlier today.
