Could The Implementation of 3FA Reduce Hack Attacks To Crypto Exchanges?
As cryptocurrency exchanges continue to be hacked experts are thinking about new solutions and implementations to improve users security in these platforms. One of the solutions could be related to the development of 3FA. Binance, one of the most popular cryptocurrency exchanges was hacked last week and it lost over 7,000 Bitcoin (BTC). At that time, they were equivalent to over $40 million. At the same time, the exchange exposed some user two-factor authentication codes and API tokens. This has increased the vulnerabilities of the exchange and its users. This is just one of the many exchanges and platforms that have been hacked in the cryptocurrency market. Clearly, hackers tend to go where the money is, and exchanges hold large amounts of money in hot wallets that are used to provide liquidity to users when they trade digital currencies.

Ethereum Price Analysis September 11th: ETH Continues to Fall From ATH
The slide of Ethereum has been profound. In the last week, ETH has shed more than 30 percent with several theories claiming that this is due to ICOs cashing out. While there has been no substantive evidence supporting that claim, what is in the public domain is ETH mining and how it is quickly becoming a loss-making venture. The result has been deflated miners and a drastic drop in the network hashing power which isn't good for the overall network performance. No doubt, initial coin offerings (ICOs) were and continue to be an ingenious method of raising funds for blockchain start-ups. In-fact the whole ICO craze did pick up around Q2 of 2017 with the market literally blowing off late last year and early 2018. This year alone $25 billion were raised with EOS and Telegram forming 25 percent of the total funds collected. However, fast forward eight months later and the market is literally cooling off, printing huge losses for those who bought at tops.
