Rise in DeFi scams tarnish Yield Farming’s market niche

With scams at DeFi multiplying every day, industry stakeholders are urging investors to prioritise due diligence before investing in any project.

For those working in the DeFi field, not a day goes by without reporting a project or other „exit scam“ on its investors. From sudden withdrawal of backing to false pre-sales, both DeFi experts and novice traders are bleeding Ether’s (ETH) value into these scams.

With DeFi creating a market segment where the cost of starting a project is almost zero, dishonest players now have the perfect environment to continually siphon off funds from the victims. With the help and complicity of a multitude of social network scammers and the current climate of frantic pursuit of Yield Farming returns, these crypto-scammers are capable of carrying huge sums of money amounting to hundreds of millions of dollars.

Instead of DeFi helping to democratise access to global finance, the emerging market niche is being invaded by scams. The sheer volume of swindles, scams and other unpleasant market practices also appears to have contributed to a significant cooling of prices in the sector, as investors become increasingly wary of new projects.

Crime pays at DeFi

As for the scams, those seen in the DeFi space follow the same basic playbook. The anonymous founders create a new project that copies the code of an intelligent contract from an existing token and make small changes to the parameters such as the total supply.

Typically building on any trends that have recently gained favor in the DeFi marketplace, these scammers flood Telegram groups and other social networking platforms. With the help of the „moon boys“, or paid accomplices with a considerable number of followers on Twitter, the project creators spread the word about their alleged new DeFi „jewel“. All these scams share the same premise: low market capitalization caused by a limited supply of tokens that guarantee huge profits for early adopters or about 1,000% profit.

However, with these projects focused on price and having little or no consideration for useful technology, the zero-sum game results in a sharp drop in valuation that leaves most adopters with bags of ERC-20 tokens worthless. For Douglas Horn, chief architect of the Blockchain Telos network, the success of these scams is based on the unbridled desire to make a quick profit in the crypto market, as he told Cointelegraph:

„Any time you are chasing this kind of FOMO market action, you are already making a mistake because you are betting on your ability to make a profit by being faster than the masses, knowing that it is impossible for all or even most of the participants to make it. That will always end in tears for most participants and is an extremely poor investment strategy. […] Good investments do not have that level of FOMO or time contraction“.

When developers are not immediately withdrawing support, some project developers are adding lines of malicious code designed to steal funds from their users. Yield Farming participants in the dubious UniCats protocol recently saw their balances in tokens diverted by a dishonest developer.

Hidden behind anonymity, project developers and promoters are taking advantage of the credulity of some crypt investors. In some cases, these rogue players choose to use the long-term approach of cultivating a huge following and appearing to be against scams. Once their attraction to social networks reaches a certain level, they announce a pre-sale of tokens from a new income-generating machine. Based on the trust gained by the project’s creators, investors pile up their ETH and the scammers soon disappear with the funds.

Useful tips to avoid DeFi scammers

Amidst the litany of counterfeit coins appearing in decentralised markets such as Uniswap, the need arises to arm investors with useful information to avoid becoming victims. Given the novel nature of the industry, there is still a considerable knowledge gap among investors that makes them easy targets for these cryptic scammers. Malcolm Tan, a board member of the KingSwap automated market-making platform, told Cointelegraph that investors have a responsibility to do their own due diligence:

„It is very important to look at the team and the founders, and check their profiles on LinkedIn and those of their advisors to see that they have actually listed the project. …] Read as much as you can about the projects and make sure you think about how you would get your money back if you put it into the project – which means that projects that don’t even list their location or jurisdiction or have familiar faces to look at if things go wrong, shouldn’t be touched.“

According to Michael Gu, founder of the popular YouTube channel Boxmining, DeFi investors should adopt the „don’t trust, verify“ philosophy. Writing to Cointelegraph, Gu advised high net worth hunters to become experts in researching DeFi projects, adding that anyone can easily check „how much a developer has built in terms of code, to make sure they are not lying or embellishing,“ he added:

„Devoting time to research is key, I personally spend up to six hours a day on research alone. Right now, the best way to avoid scams is to check the facts – which includes looking at the smart contract code and GitHub repositories. This is the best part of DeFi, as the smart contracts are open source and open to everyone to verify and validate.“

Since withdrawals by developers are possible from time to time because the liquidity of the project is not blocked, it has become popular among investors to check whether the developers of a new token have blocked liquidity using services such as Unicrypt. Even with blocked liquidity, malicious code hidden in the contract can also present a back door for dishonest players to drain the funds. For example, in February 2020, hackers were able to exploit a code weakness to execute flash loan attacks on the bZx decentralised loan protocol, resulting in a loss of around 1,139 ETH, worth around 1 million dollars at the time.

Taking the shine off a legitimate niche of crypto currencies

Apart from the significant losses suffered by the victims of these scams, it is reported that the sheer volume of fraudulent activity is taking its toll on the DeFi market as a whole. As in the case of the ICOs, the fake projects are preventing attempts to initiate the democratisation of global finance.

Commenting on the negative impact of these scams, Horn told Cointelegraph that the Blockchain technology should represent transparency and trust, but „instead, it is more prominently associated with these scams and unaudited codes, just as the failure of many ICOs to live up to their promises helped sink cryptosystems in early 2018. According to Horn, the current situation in the DeFi space is escalating even further than what was seen during the ICO craze:

„The DeFi cycles are happening at a much faster pace. All this detracts from the amazing potential of democratised finance to build powerful systems and self-created derivatives from chaining many different financial primitives. Someday this will change the world, but not until there is more stability and quality in the offerings.“

There is an emerging trend in the DeFi space that has seen the market transition from Yield Farming to „Ponzinomics“, with sudden withdrawals by developers and fraudulent pre-sales becoming commonplace in recent weeks. For Gu, these scams threaten to deflate the hype and enthusiasm surrounding the DeFi space:

„These scams are affecting people’s interest in Yield Farming, which is the main attraction for people, as some projects promise unrealistic returns not seen before. And with interest and returns in Yield Farming decreasing due to people’s fear of scams, the corresponding interest in DeFi in general is also losing strength.“

However, not all stakeholders share the view that these DeFi scams are the death knell of the emerging cryptomoney market. Rafael Cosman, co-founder and CEO of stablecoins issuer TrustToken, told Cointelegraph that DeFi’s space can overcome the challenges posed by rogue players:

„All new technology is subject to bad actors who, all too often, are also the first to adopt it. Cutting edge technology has often been an attraction for money-making scams, pornography or the sale of illicit goods, but when good, creative people keep building, technologies like the modern Internet are obtained. […] I predict that DeFi will continue to innovate, consumers will continue to become smarter, and standards will continue to rise for what it calls something worth putting your money into.“

Esses sinais de Bitcoin são semelhantes aos dias de glória de 2017

Para o mundo do Bitcoin, dezembro de 2017 foram os dias de glória e o pesadelo, tudo envolvido em um. Durante aquele mês, e o retrocesso que se seguiu, o mundo viu o que poderia acontecer se o hype em torno das criptomoedas cedesse lugar à realidade.

Agora, quase três anos depois, o preço do tempo de impressão do Bitcoin exige um salto de 75 por cento para atingir a alta de [quase] $ 20.000

No entanto, olhando para a dinâmica da oscilação atual dos preços em relação a dezembro de 2017, pode-se ver que provavelmente estamos mais perto do que você pensa.

Para retroceder um pouco, os $ 19.000 não foram uma fase, foi uma onda primordial, foi a primeira vez que o Joe todos os dias ouvia sobre este ‚dinheiro mágico da internet‘ e pulou no movimento. Além disso, a oscilação do preço foi severa, não estável, um salto rápido para $ 20.000 e uma rápida queda para menos de $ 10.000 em fevereiro e tão baixo quanto $ 3.000 em novembro. Sim, não era assim que alguém esperava. Mas agora, não apenas o mercado amadureceu, mas também o preço.

O impulso do Bitcoin Superstar de mais de US $ 10.000 e seu sustento do mesmo são a prova de que o mercado de criptomoedas está amadurecendo, já que o preço está se mantendo. De acordo com um relatório da Chainalysis , em todo o histórico de preços da criptomoeda , ela não passou mais de 13 semanas sendo negociada acima da marca de US $ 10.000. Na verdade, seu período mais longo foi de 13 semanas em dezembro de 2017.

Com o preço do Bitcoin fechando em $ 11.300, em 16 de outubro, isso marca a 12ª semana consecutiva acima de $ 10.000, uma curta distância da infame corrida de touros de dezembro de 2017

Para colocar isso em perspectiva, o atual movimento ascendente ultrapassou a alta de setembro de 2019 em mais de US $ 10.000, quando Libra , CBDCs , a mudança de posição da China sobre blockchain e Bakkt puxaram o Bitcoin de US $ 13.800 em junho para US $ 7.000 no final do ano. Todo este ciclo viu o Bitcoin ser negociado acima de US $ 10.000 por 11 semanas, conforme Chainalysis.

Como o Bitcoin passou 12 semanas desde a penúltima semana de julho negociando mais de US $ 10.000, agora está a apenas uma semana de superar a façanha de dezembro de 2017, algo que não é pouca coisa.

Bitcoin i Altcoins Extended Gains

Cena Bitcoinów wzrosła powyżej 11 500 USD, ale z trudem testowała opór 11 800 USD.

Etereum skoczyło prawie o 5%, XRP konsoliduje zyski w okolicach 0,255 USD.
OCEAN zanotował dziś ponad 15%.

Cena Bitcoinu była w stanie pokonać opór na poziomie 11 500 USD, co przyniosło więcej plusów. BTC przedłużyła swój wzrost powyżej poziomu 11.650 USD, ale nie było testu na opór 11.800 USD. Cena obecnie (13:00 UTC) koryguje się w dół z 11.720 USD, ale może znaleźć wsparcie powyżej 11.200 USD.

Również w wielu głównych altcoinach, w tym w eterze, XRP, litecoin, bitcoin cash, EOS, XLM, LINK, BNB, TRX i ADA, miały miejsce głównie bycze ruchy. ETH/USD wzrosły powyżej poziomów oporu 375 USD i 380 USD. XRP/USD wykazuje pozytywne oznaki i konsoliduje się blisko poziomu 0,255 USD.

Cena Bitcoinu

Po teście wsparcia w wysokości 11 200 USD, cena Bitcoinu zaczęła ponownie rosnąć. BTC była w stanie oczyścić poziom 11.400 USD i 11.500 USD. BTC osiągnęło nowy tygodniowy wzrost powyżej 11.700 USD, a następnie rozpoczęło korektę spadkową. Cena jest obecnie notowana poniżej 11.500 USD, ale jest wiele wsparcia na minusie.

Pierwsze wsparcie jest zbliżone do poziomu 11.300 USD, ale główne wsparcie wydaje się kształtować w okolicach 11.200 USD. Na plusie byki mogą testować opór 11.800 USD w krótkim okresie.

Główne wsparcie tworzy się obecnie w pobliżu poziomów USD 372 i USD 370. Z drugiej strony, cena może nadal wykazywać duże zainteresowanie sprzedażą w okolicach 392 USD, 395 USD i 400 USD.

Bitcoin cash, chainlink i cena XRP

Cena gotówkowa Bitcoinów pozostała znacznie wyższa od poziomu wsparcia w wysokości 230 USD. W rezultacie, BCH rozpoczął nowy wzrost powyżej 235 USD i rozliczył się powyżej poziomu 240 USD. Kolejny kluczowy opór dla byków jest blisko poziomu 250 USD. Ewentualne dalsze zyski mogłyby otworzyć drzwi dla większego wzrostu w kierunku poziomu 265 USD.

Linka łańcuchowa (LINK) nabrała byczego rozmachu powyżej poziomu oporu 11,00 USD i 11,20 USD. Cena przełamała nawet opór 11,50 USD i przetestowała 11,80 USD. Jest to korekta zysków poniżej 11,50 USD, ale poziom 11,00 USD może działać jako silne wsparcie dla byków.
Cena XRP pozostała znacznie powyżej poziomu wsparcia 0,250 USD. Obecnie cena ta jest notowana na poziomie zbliżonym do 0,255 USD, a na przeszkodzie stoją płotki w okolicach 0,258 USD. Główny opór jest obecnie bliski poziomu 0,260 USD, powyżej którego byki mogą dążyć do większego wzrostu do poziomu 0,272 USD.

Inny rynek altcoins dziś

W ciągu ostatnich kilku godzin, wiele altcoinów zyskało trakcję i skoczyło ponad 5%, w tym OCEAN, CVT, AAVE, AVAX, SNX, BNB, NXM, BAND, GNT, UMA, ALGO i ICX. Spośród nich, OCEAN zyskał 18% i obracał powyżej poziomu 0,365 USD.

Podsumowując, cena Bitcoin sygnalizuje rozszerzony ruch w górę powyżej 11.200 USD. Tak długo, jak BTC jest powyżej poziomu wsparcia 11.200 USD, istnieją szanse na większe wzrosty powyżej poziomu 11.700 USD i 11.800 USD.

Who Wants to Be a Millionaire ? – China organizes a lottery to test its cryptocurrency

DC / EP Is In The Place – The digital currency of the People’s Bank of China is at an incredibly advanced stage of development. After having communicated impressive operational figures for its first tests, the authorities will offer – via a lottery – digital yuan to test their Digital Currency / Electronic Payment (DC / EP).

1.5 million dollars in „e-yuan“ to be won

According to the local newspaper South China Morning Post , the executives of the People’s Bank of China (PBoC) would not lack imagination to arouse the interest of citizens in its new digital currency system, the famous DC / EP .

Thus, in agreement with officials from the city of Shenzhen – located on the border with Hong Kong – a total of 50,000 „red packets“ will be distributed to the population by drawing lots .

A total of 10 million digital yuan will be distributed, or nearly 1.5 million dollars . Each of the gift envelopes will therefore contain 200 e-yuan (about 30 dollars).

Any Chinese citizen living in Shenzhen can register for this lottery through iShenzhen , a blockchain- based utility app managed by the city government.

The winners will receive a download link for the official DC / EP system app, called the Digital Renminbi App – the latter is indeed not available for public download.

Yuan to spend in 3,389 stores in Shenzhen

As it is a question of testing the state cryptocurrency system, these e-yuan will, on the other hand, have to be spent quickly . The lucky winners will only have one week to use their winnings, in one of the 3,389 shops selected by the city authorities.

In addition to the DC / EP test, this should give a little boost to local consumption , according to Dan Wang , chief economist of the Hang Seng Bank of China:

“An estimate of the return on these gift envelopes suggests that this 10 million yuan program will ultimately generate at least 50 million yuan in sales [among merchants]. “

Still according to this banker, the “advantage” of this digital currency is that regulators will have full details of where the money is spent in order to better plan targeted economic stimulus programs. Is this hyper-surveillance desirable? It’s a whole different story.

China’s DC / EP is still on a very dynamic course. Meanwhile, the European Union is still in the starting blocks and the United States is still reluctant to participate in this race for central bank digital currencies (MNBC). The Middle Kingdom therefore appears more and more ahead of its competitors.

New IOTA platform prides itself on enterprise-scale smart contract applications

The IOTA Foundation’s new Pre-Alpha platform is designed for developers to familiarize themselves with the functionality of the project’s smart contracts.

IOTA hopes that the smart contract protocol will lend itself well to entrepreneurial-scale applications

The platform aims to showcase the possibilities of smart contracts on IOTA’s distributed DAG ledger.

The Trust Project is an international consortium of news organizations based on transparency standards.

IOTA announced the launch of the Pre-Alpha IOTA Smart Contract Protocol (ISCP) platform.

In an announcement , the IOTA Foundation said it hopes this new version will demonstrate the ability of the IOTA network to deliver enterprise-level smart contract applications .

The new platform does not yet have all the ISCP functionalities. This is a proof of concept (PoC) application that aims to demonstrate the possibilities of smart contracts on the distributed DAG (Directed Acyclic Graph) ledger of IOTA.

A new step taken! We are proud to launch #IOTASmartContracts Pre-Alpha, our platform for scalable, flexible and easy-to-use smart contracts for business applications and real-world use cases. Start exploring the first features of the platform today!

L’ISCP Pre-Alpha

In comparison to a blockchain, IOTA believes that ISCP’s distributed DAG ledger offers a unique opportunity to implement large-scale smart contracts at an unprecedented level. Indeed, according to the IOTA Foundation, the sensitive nature of this configuration as well as its flexibility make it highly scalable for business applications and implementations in the real world.

The Pre-Alpha version comes preloaded with three demo dApps to demonstrate the platform’s capability. These are TokenRegistry, FairAuction and DonateWithFeedback.

The [Wasp] category has been renamed: [IOTA Smart Contract Protocol (ISCP)] and all new links have been added.

You will find the latest additions here: https://iotalink.directory/latest-links/

The [Qubic] category is currently private and will not appear in the directory.

IOTA dApp functionality demonstration

DonateWithFeedback demonstrates ISCP’s ability to support end-to-end donation and comment management for websites. According to the foundation, this dApp is the simplest of the three demo contracts and best illustrates the system’s ability to process most smart contracts at high volume.

TokenRegistry allows ISCP users to simultaneously issue and assign metadata to IOTA range tokens as part of a single transaction. This saves time and therefore lends itself to entrepreneurial-type speed and efficiency. This dApp stores data such as tokens and token metadata in an immutable manner, as well as cryptographic proof of the identity of the person responsible for issuing the tokens and the number of tokens issued.

Dave Portnoy sembra odiare BTC Tutto d’un tratto

Oh Dave Portnoy, cos’è successo? Sei passato dall’essere un grande sostenitore del bitcoin e ora sembri odiarlo. Cosa ti ha fatto cambiare idea così drasticamente?

Dave Portnoy passa a Bitcoin

Come tutti ricordiamo, è stato un grande evento nell’agosto di quest’anno quando i gemelli Winklevoss del Gemini Exchange di New York hanno deciso di spiegare bitcoin a Portnoy dopo aver ammesso di non avere idea di cosa fosse o di come funzionasse nel suo podcast. Dopo qualche ora con i Gemelli, si stimava che l’oro avrebbe finito il suo valore grazie ai piani di Elon Musk per estrarre gli asteroidi e che BTC avrebbe probabilmente continuato a vivere per un bel po‘ di tempo.

Quando fu tutto finito, Portnoy annunciò con gratitudine che avrebbe fatto il primo passo verso l’investimento in bitcoin. Purtroppo, non sembra che quel passo sarà fatto dopo tutto, considerando che ora si riferisce al Bitcoin System come ad uno schema Ponzi – qualcosa che dovrebbe essere evitato a tutti i costi. E‘ un vero peccato, considerando che il prezzo del bene è salito di circa 400 dollari nelle ultime 48 ore fino a raggiungere i 10.700 dollari, il più alto da poco più di una settimana.

In una recente intervista, Portnoy ha spiegato quanto segue a proposito della valuta digitale numero uno al mondo per limite di mercato:

È solo un grande schema Ponzi. Entri e non devi essere tu a tenere in mano la borsa. Non è diverso dal mercato azionario. Ognuno sta pompando la propria [moneta] bene.

Diverse persone all’interno della comunità dei crittografi non stanno prendendo bene le parole di Portnoy e lo stanno criticando sui social media. Jameson Lopp – co-fondatore e responsabile della tecnologia presso l’azienda di sicurezza bitcoin Casa in Colorado – ha dichiarato sulla sua pagina Twitter:

Oh, caro Dave. Per questa definizione, ogni bene quotato in borsa è un Ponzi.

Gli analisti reagiscono

Altri analisti, come Willy Woo, si sono trovati subito in disaccordo con le affermazioni di Portnoy, ma hanno anche spiegato perché sentivano che qualcuno come Portnoy – che è relativamente nuovo nello spazio cripto – avrebbe avuto tali idee quando si trattava della mancanza di protezioni nel mondo bitcoin.

Ha dichiarato:

Strutturalmente, le persone chiamano le cose schemi Ponzi quando sembrano una bolla e senza una reale produttività dimostrata. Le prime fasi di avvio con valutazioni sempre crescenti ricadono in questo campo. Il fatto è che sembra uno schema Ponzi finché non prende il sopravvento come il nuovo normale e cambia il mondo.

Inoltre, non è del tutto giusto etichettare il bitcoin come un bene che non ha mostrato alcuna produttività, considerando che è aumentato di poco meno del 50% dall’inizio dell’anno. Nonostante tutta la rabbia nei confronti di BTC, Portnoy ha lasciato intendere che alla fine ci sarebbe tornato, considerando che le persone nello spazio BTC erano „il suo tipo di persone“.


  • Dave Portnoy is vorige week met behulp van de Winklevoss Twins de beroemde Bitcoin en crypto markt binnengegaan.
  • Hij kocht oorspronkelijk voor $250.000 aan digitale activa, $50.000 aan Chainlink en de rest aan Bitcoin.
  • De video van zijn aankoop van deze cryptocurrency ging crypto-viraal zoals velen het belang van zijn entree in de industrie erkenden.
  • Terwijl hij in eerste instantie bezig was met zijn investering, liquideerde hij vrijdag zijn Bitcoin en altcoins.
  • Portnoy beweerde dat hij er niet van hield om geld te verliezen, hoewel hij later duidelijk maakte dat het verlies relatief klein was.


Op vrijdag onthulde Dave Portnoy, de oprichter van Barstool Sports en een beroemde Bitcoin en beurshandelaar, dat hij de crypto-markt aan het verlaten was. Hij schreef in een tweet die viraal ging in de crypto ruimte:

„Ik heb momenteel nul bitcoins. Ik zal wachten en kijken. Ik verloor 25k. Net als bij de beurs kostte het mijn hersenen tijd om het uit te zoeken. Ik weet dit. De Link Mariniers zijn zwak en de orchideeënbloemen sterven wel in de cryptowereld. Ik kan wel of niet klaar zijn.

Hij voegde er in een apart bericht aan toe dat hij „gedood“ wordt met Bitcoin Future, en voegde eraan toe dat hij op een gegeven moment $150.000 omhoog ging, maar dat hij nu down is.

Portnoy verduidelijkte een dag later dat hij eigenlijk 20.000 dollar verloor van zijn oorspronkelijke investering van 1.250.000 dollar, wat neerkomt op slechts 1,6%. Velen in de cryptografische ruimte verwezen naar het getal, waarbij ze opmerkten dat Portnoy niet klaar was voor de snelle en volatiele Bitcoin-markt.

Volgens de belegger zijn verliezen van enige omvang echter onaanvaardbaar, omdat de aandelen „alleen maar stijgen“.

„Ja. Jullie crypto idioten snappen het niet. Ik probeer jullie op te voeden. Jullie maken grote memes en ik respecteer de eenvoudige manier waarop jullie leven. Maar verliezen van welke aard dan ook is onacceptabel. Zes dagen of een arrestatie.


Portnoy die zijn posities in Bitcoin en andere cryptocentra verlaat, roept de vraag op of hij iets zal missen, een potentieel voordeel.

Volgens een aantal analisten zal hij een exponentiële stijging van de BTC-prijs missen.

Dan Tapiero – de mede-oprichter van DTAP Capital en Gold Bullion International – merkte onlangs op dat Bitcoin 400 tot 900 procent zou kunnen winnen in deze stiercyclus:

„Enorme lange termijn Log Chart van #Bitcoin projecteert 5-10x op deze run. Gewoon nu al uit elkaar gaan. Zou moeten duren een paar jaar als 2.5yr consolidatie is fantastische basis voor katapult up. Break of old highs zal explosieve volgen. Tijd om te gaan zitten en geduld te hebben.

Raoul Pal heeft dit herhaald. De Wall Street-veteraan merkte op dat BTC de komende twee jaar waarschijnlijk de best presterende troef zal zijn.

Krypto-Klau-Angriffe werden ernsthaft unterschätzt

Krypto-Klau-Angriffe werden ernsthaft unterschätzt, sagt BlackBerry VP

BlackBerry exec ist der Ansicht, dass viele Unternehmen die Kombination von Crypto-Mining-Anwendungen mit Malware nicht sehr gut erkennen können.
Krypto-Jacking-Angriffe sind sowohl eine interne als auch eine externe Bedrohung, da sich die Hacker-Gruppen immer besser organisieren, um Schwachstellen in den Netzwerken auszunutzen. Es gibt jedoch auch Fälle, in denen einige Admins gültige Berechtigungen nutzen, um mit dem illegalen Abbau von Krypto unter Verwendung der Netzwerkressourcen der Firma Bitcoin Profit Geld zu verdienen, und viele Organisationen „haben darüber keine große Sichtbarkeit“, sagt Josh Lemos, VP für Forschung und Geheimdienst bei BlackBerry.

Lemos sagte Cointelegraph gegenüber Cointelegraph, dass eine Krypto-Mining-Software nicht unbedingt bösartig, sondern eher opportunistisch sei, indem sie Rechenressourcen für einen finanziellen Gewinn einsetzt, „obwohl sie oft mit bösartiger Software gepaart ist“, und es ist auch eine Tatsache, die von einigen Organisationen nicht gut genug beobachtet wird, wenn es um den Schutz ihrer Netzwerke geht.

Jede Cryptojacking-Malware kann gefährlich sein

Lemos ging weiter darauf ein, dass Krypto-Mining-Anwendungen heutzutage immer raffinierter werden, und sagte, dass Krypto-Miner nicht raffiniert sein müssen und auf verschiedene Weise bereitgestellt werden können: „von JavaScript, das auf einer Website als Tränke-Angriff läuft oder in eine Spear-Phishing-E-Mail eingebettet ist, bis hin zu Angriffen auf die Lieferkette mit Bergleuten, die in Bilder von Docker-Hubs und bösartige Browser-Erweiterungen eingebettet sind“. Das fügte er weiter hinzu: „Die Verbreitung ist das primäre Ziel, und wenn die Erkennung kein bedeutendes Risiko birgt, können Reisebüros ihre Bergleute weit und breit verbreiten.

Jüngste Fälle von Crypto-Jacking, wie Luzifer, zeigen ein Muster – die häufige Verwendung der XMRig Crypto-Miner-Anwendung bei den Angriffen. Die BlackBerry-Exekutive erklärte, warum bei den Angriffen häufig Monero (XMR) und nicht andere Währungen verwendet werden:

„Monero wird aufgrund der Art des Mining-Algorithmus als lukrativer für den durchschnittlichen Benutzer eingeschätzt. Jedes Mal, wenn Sie ungebildete Benutzer haben, die auf der Suche nach schnellem Geld sind, haben Sie mehr Möglichkeiten zur Ausbeutung. Das alte Sprichwort gilt immer noch: Der beste Weg, im Goldrausch reich zu werden, ist der Verkauf von Schaufeln. In diesem Fall enthalten die Schaufeln auch Malware“.

Pandemie treibende Krypto-Klau-Angriffe?

Lemos ist der Ansicht, dass die Tatsache, dass Hacker vollständige Malware-Suites mit Fähigkeiten verwenden, die zahlreiche Schwachstellen ausnutzen, um Persistenz zu schaffen, einen wachsenden Trend bei Bitcoin Profit bei dieser Art von Cryptojacking-Angriffen zeigt, und Luzifer ist „eine Fortsetzung oder Weiterentwicklung dieses Trends“.

Da die COVID-19-Pandemie in mehreren Ländern immer noch aktiv ist, behauptet Lamos, dass, solange Krypto-Währungen als „wertvolle Alternativinvestition“ betrachtet werden, der steigende Trend der Krypto-Jacking-Angriffe „von Dauer ist“, da es nicht darum geht, speziell den Sprung im Zusammenhang mit dem Coronavirus verantwortlich zu machen.

Bitcoin-kontantprisanalys: BCH / USD bryter utanför ett tätt intervall; Resa till $ 350 börjar

Bitcoin Era rider på tjuren på det dagliga diagrammet eftersom de handlare förväntas ha en bra vecka framöver.

BCH / USD- tjurar idag gör ett försök att knäcka motståndet på $ 300 men blev avvisade till $ 297,91. Men myntet handlas till $ 293,49 vid skrivande stund. Priset rör sig också runt kanalens övre gräns. Den tekniska indikatorn pekar också på fortsatt hausseartad åtgärd.

Det är bara några minuter innan tjurarna tar ner motståndet vid $ 300 och flyttar fokuset till $ 320

BCH / USD-priset har dock fortsatt att konsolidera sig i en flaggformation och väntar på ett potentiellt utbrott. Det dagliga diagrammet visar oss att BCH / USD hade sjunkit något till $ 261,16, vilket är över de rörliga medelvärdena efter att ha hoppats till $ 297,91. Under tiden, om stödet blir svagt, kan ett prisuppdelning inträffa eftersom björnarna kan hitta nya lågheter på $ 250, $ 240 och $ 230 supportnivåer.

Dessutom kan en hausseartad fortsättning troligen rulla marknaden till $ 300 motstånd med en möjlig brytning ur kanalen och gå mot $ 325, $ 335 och $ 345 resistensnivåer, vilket skapar en ny månadshöjd för marknaden. Just nu är RSI (14) -indikatorn inom överköpt zon, vilket avslöjar fler köpssignaler för marknaden.

Jämfört med BTC börjar marknaden upptrenden för några timmar sedan för att röra sig över 9-dagars och 21-dagars rörliga medelvärden. De senaste två dagarna fokuserade BCH på den nedåtgående trenden genom att testa 2400 SAT.

Men idag signalerade myntet ett hausseartat rally, som troligen kommer att möta motstånd vid 2800 SAT och 2900 SAT om trycket stiger

Under tiden, från marknadsstrukturen, kan vi säga att tjurarna har återfått kontrollen över marknaden eftersom RSI (14) nu stiger inom det överköpta territoriet. BCH / BTC kommer sannolikt att återgå till brottnivån runt 2660 SAT där den konsolideras. Under tiden, om BCH sjunker under de rörliga medelvärdena, kan priset hitta stöd vid 2300 SAT respektive 2200 SAT.
