Litecoin Price Leaps 11%   Heres Whats Fueling the LTC Rally Litecoin Price Leaps 11% Heres Whats Fueling the LTC Rally
Litecoin on Saturday surged more than 11 percent against the US dollar, setting a fresh 2019 peak. The litecoin-to-dollar rate established an intraday high at $37.539 on a bounce from near-term ascending trendline support. The digital silver cryptocurrency since December 27 was consolidating inside a strict range much like its peers across the crypto-board. The renewed buying sentiment came three days after OKEx, a famous cryptocurrency exchange, launched ethereum and litecoin perpetual swaps. On the day of the announcement, litecoin had attempted a straightforward rally that fizzled near $34.962. Ethereum, like litecoin, also marked an impressive upside action on the same day, clarifying that traders went bullish on the OKEx news. Now the impact of the announcement could eventually evaporate as litecoin overreaches its interim bullish target at least, fundamentally, as happens every time after hyped-up rallies in the crypto market. But how the price action is hinting to play technically, let's find out. This information was obtained by us on 2019-01-06 17:32:28.

More Than 15% of Crypto Projects Have Serious Red Flags: WSJ More Than 15% of Crypto Projects Have Serious Red Flags: WSJ
According to new research from the Wall Street Journal, more than 15% of crypto projects raising funds through initial coin offerings (ICOs) have serious red flags that should give investors pause.The investigation, which analyzed the whitepapers of 3,300 cryptocurrency offerings and ICOs launched in 2017 and 2018, found that 513 of them likely committed plagiarism, misrepresented the identities of project founders, or promised unrealistic returns. The Wall Street Journalexamined the white papers of all 3,300 projects which it found listed on ICOBench.com, Tokendata.io, and ICORating.com. To identify plagiarism, the reporters compared sentences in all the reports to find duplication, with reporters identifying over 10,000 sentences that appeared more than once. The papers were also searched to identify offerings where no team members were provided, and the publication reverse image searched photos to identify fake team listings. Lacking or fraudulent team, founder, or sponsor details have long been a red flag for illicit crypto projects and should be one of the first details an investor scrutinizes for accuracy.

Zurcoin Co-Founder Alleges Most Exchanges Manipulating Cryptocurrency Market Zurcoin Co-Founder Alleges Most Exchanges Manipulating Cryptocurrency Market
Zurcoin co-founder Daniel Mark Harrison has alleged that the majority of crypto exchanges are actively engaged in manipulating digital asset markets, which threatens the long term stability of the market and also fundamentally contradicts cryptocurrencys principle of decentralisation. In a post published on his Medium page, Harrison stated that exchanges are effectively stealing from their customers by acting in ways that move crypto prices downward until customers simply abandon their holdings, enabling exchanges to increase their crypto asset holdings through the back door in an operating climate that is otherwise unattractive due to high operating costs and low margins.
