Hodler’s Digest, Top Stories, Price Movements, Quotes and FUD of the...

Trump tells the world what he thinks of Bitcoin, Facebook vows to cooperate with Congress on Libra, and an angry mob descends on Tron’s office in Beijing. Top Stories This WeekTrump tweets opposition to crypto, specifically Libra and BitcoinShrinking violet Donald Trump doesn’t often share his views, so it was refreshing to see him share an opinion for once on Twitter. The United States president declared that he isn’t a fan of Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies — telling his 61.9 million followers they fuel unlawful behavior. Trump also had Libra in his sights during the three-tweet tirade and warned Facebook’s upcoming digital currency will have “little standing or dependability.” He rounded off by reminding his followers that there’s only one real currency in America, the U.S. dollar (and this really came as a surprise, as I thought it was the Vietnamese dong.) Bitcoin prices actually reacted positively to Trump’s proclamations, as it’s unclear whether this amounts to a policy of a..

Prices against the dollar had dwindled as low as $9,688 earlier in the week — but by Wednesday, they surged back to highs of $11,525, hitting $12,025 on Thursday. Momentum had waned by Friday, with the market testing support for $11,000. The bounce-back left naysayers red-faced, and just a few hours before BTC returned to green territory, Forbes had claimed the “bitcoin bubble” had bur..

A Coinbase crash interrupts Bitcoin’s parabolic run and a Singaporean exchange is the latest to fall victim to a hacking attack. Coming every Sunday, the Hodler’s Digest will help you track every single important news story that happened this week. The best (and worst) quotes, adoption and regulation highlights, leading coins, predictions, and much more — a week on Cointelegraph in one link. Top Stories This WeekBitcoin falls by $1,400 after crash of major crypto exchange CoinbaseAfter surpassing the $12,000 and $13,000 marks in a matter of hours, Bitcoin’s (BTC) parabolic run was plunged into peril when the Coinbase crypto exchange crashed on June 26. Prices began to tumble shortly before the trading platform confirmed there was a problem — and there was a 51-minute gap between its investigation starting and services returning to normal. The correction now suggests that $13,800 is an important barrier to further gains, as BTC has never achieved a monthly close above this level. Despi..

Bitcoin is reportedly producing as much carbon emissions as Kansas City, while Facebook gets some new backers for its crypto project. CCN casts doubt on shutdown plans as Google appears to correct visibilityCryptocurrency news outlet CCN (formerly CryptoCoinsNews) is apparently not going through with its total shutdown, as reported earlier this week. The outlet had previously posted a note that a recent Google Core Update had led to a more than 70% visibility drop on mobile overnight, leading the organization to decide to shut down rather than downsize. However, an update this week from CCN Markets Director Jonas Borchgrevink notes that, for an unexplained reason, the crypto outlet’s old domain name, CryptoCoinNews, has been showing up with new 2019 articles on Google, leading the team to decide to keep working. Theories about the visibility drop, which affected other news outlets, have ranged from it being a block of clickbait titles or a ban on conservative outlets by an allegedly “..

In the interim, proceedings from the hack have been moved to seven addresses. CZ devoted a live AMA on Twitter to address community concerns in the wake of the hack, also discussing the idea of a Bitcoin chain reorganization.
