Reddit users analyzed past Bitcoin (BTC) withdrawals from the QuadrigaCX cryptocurrency exchange. Reddit users analyzed past Bitcoin (BTC) withdrawals from the now-defunct QuadrigaCX cryptocurrency exchange in a post published on April 10, finding that some came from other exchanges. The Reddit users claim that of the withdrawal transactions that they analyzed, one came from a HitBTC hot wallet and the other one from a Bittrex hot wallet. The users write that before they realized that the addresses are owned by exchanges, they found that some of the addresses appear on multiple High Yield Investment Programs (HYIP), amatorial ransomware research and a post concerning lost funds by another Reddit user. Further examination suggests that this means that people sent funds from exchanges to HYIP Ponzi schemes, and that hackers attempted to cash in money earned with ransomware through those exchanges. Quadriga has previously filed for creditor protection following the death of its founder i..

While there was a promising start in January 2018, when most altcoins were enjoying their all-time highs, the bear eventually took over, and the market delved into the so-called “Crypto Winter.” Nevertheless, there was good news, too: The United States regulators expressed their desire to stick to “positive regulation,” while big league investors poured some funds into a number of promising, compliant crypto projects (mostly stablecoins).

The previous year was rough for the cryptocurrency space amid regulatory uncertainty and plummetion of prices. 2018 was defined by stricter oversight by regulators of the Blockchain and crypto sectors. Private and public institutional entities helped to stabilize the crypto trend, which is something that has been difficult to undertake in previous years.

The new year will bring good things to the space including: Bitcoin Futures Futures products for digital assets already exist by means of Bitcoin contracts provided by CBOE and CME exchanges.
