Bank in India sends 'desperate' Bitcoin letter
Mati Greenspan, a Senior Market Analyst with eToro, made the observation while posting a photograph of the letter on Twitter. (This is) a letter from Kotak Bank in India closing a customer's account on suspicion of buying cryptocurrencies, Mr Greenspan wrote. You don't get any more desperate than that. The letter, which is dated December 29, 2018, announced that the person's account would be closed because (the regulator) has mandated banks to close the accounts of customers who had undertaken transactions in virtual currency / Bit coins (sic) any time during the tenure of the account. On review of the transactions done in your above mentioned account we have noticed that you have undertaken online transaction(s) involving dealings in Bitcoin or a virtual currency.

BITWISE: Bitcoin ETF 'should launch in 2019'
Cryptocurrency asset manager Bitwise announced on January 10 that it'sfiledwith the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) for a new Bitcoin Exchange Traded Fund (ETF), which would be different from other proposals. Bitwise says the proposed ETF differs because it will rely on regulated third party custodians to hold its physical Bitcoin, and the index draws prices from a large number ofcryptocurrency exchanges. Bitwise says the ETF's shares would list on the NYSE Arca, which will file a so-called'Rule19b-4? request with the SEC in the coming days. The request is for necessary rule changes to allow its application to be approved and the ETF to list once the registration statement is declared effective by the SEC.

Russian economist says Russia will begin transferring billion of USD in Bitcoin next month

US sanctions may be mitigated only through Bitcoin use, Said Mr. Ginko, speaking to Micky from Moscow. Because of US sanctions Russia's elite is forced to dump US assets and US dollars and invest hugely into Bitcoins. Central bank of Russia sits on $466 billion of reserves and has to diversify in case there is limited opportunities to do it (in the future).

Blockchain project responds to intense scrutiny
The pieces in the Australian Financial Review were written by Aaron Patrick, a prominent journalist with decades of experience. The (Power Ledger) system doesn't operate outside a few pre-established trials that cover a tiny number of people, Mr Patrick wrote. (The) trading system has a tiny take-up, was rejected by the one big electricity retailer that tested it, and a government-funded trial hasn't met the expectations of some involved. Mr Patrick went on to observe how the Power Ledger utility token (POWR) spectacularly peaked in January, but crashed with the rest of the Bitcoin market to now be trading at around 20 per cent below their issue price.

Why the only independent ratings agency in the US believes bitcoin will hit all-time highs in 2019:
Weiss Ratings is predicting the Bitcoin price will surpass its previous all-time high of just below US$20,000, within the next twelve months. It's a huge call by the agency, which unlike most other major ratings agencies, relies on income from individual investors not the companies it covers. If Bitcoin was to set a new record high in 2019 it would need to climb around $US16,000 from today's prices, but Weiss RatingsMathematician Juan Villaverde says history shows it can happen. Through 2015, Bitcoin had suffered four bear markets with declines of 70% or more, says Mr Villaverde. Each time, the so-called experts wrote its obituary. But each time, Bitcoin recovered and embarked on a new bull market that delivered average gains of 6,300% from bottom to peak. This item was first seen by us on 2019-01-06 08:37:41.
