02:43 Yahoo FinanceBlockchain research firm Messari claims Ripple is operating a ‘tax shelter’

Blockchain analysis firm Messari has launched a scathing attack on Rippleworks and its executives, claiming that Ripple used a $174 million donation to the foundation as a tax write-off. After examining Ripple’s ‘Return of Private Foundation’ form (Form 990), Ryan Selkis, the founder of blockchain analysis firm Messari Pro Research, alleged that Ripple executives were using the Ripple Foundation for Financial Innovation, or ‘Rippleworks’, as a "corporate and executive tax shelter" and had failed to dispense grants to charities. Discussing charitable donations made in the 2018 tax year by Rippleworks, Selkis wrote: “…the entity affiliated with Ripple and its co-founder Chris Larsen granted exactly $0 to other charities out of a staggering $1.2 billion AUM.” Rippleworks was established to promoteThe post Blockchain

00:28 Yahoo FinanceWhy is Bitcoin’s price crashing?

At the time of writing, the price of Bitcoin (BTC) is sliding dangerously down a slippery slope. BTC has dropped close to 20% in value since last week, causing more than $100 million worth of Bitcoin long positions to be liquidated on derivatives exchange BitMEX. So why is Bitcoin's price falling so dramatically? By diving deeper into Bitcoin's hash rate behaviour and taking a look at trends over the last year, I will look to answer questions such as: Has interest in Bitcoin dipped? Who has been buying BTC? Is Bitcoin's hash rate linked to price? What is the long-term expectation for BTC?

A breakdown from this level could pave the way for a cataclysmic correction to the historic $5,900 level of support. The next logical stopping point for Bitcoin, if $7,900 is indeed broken to the downside, would be $7,400, which is the same level that spurred a 40% rally to the upside on October 25.

As an alternative to government-issued money, the cryptocurrency Bitcoin offers relative anonymity, no sales tax and freedom from bank and government interference. But some people argue that these benefits have an enormous environmental impact, particularly with regard to Bitcoin mining -- the process used to secure the cryptocurrency. Now, researchers have estimated that past and future environmental impacts of Bitcoin mining could be lower than previously thought.

20:47 Yahoo FinanceWhere is Litecoin accepted as a payment method?

One of the main drivers for cryptocurrency adoption is being able to use your crypto to buy goods and services like an actual currency. If Bitcoin (BTC) is digital gold, Litecoin (LTC) is often seen as digital silver. Litecoin prides itself on being quicker and cheaper to use than Bitcoin, making it perfect for everyday payments. So if you're a cryptocurrency enthusiast and you happen to hold some LTC, how and where can you spend it? Let's first take a quick glance at the LTC/BTC price action. This will tell you whether it's a good time to spend your LTC or if it's better to hold on in case its value rises.

16:35 Yahoo FinanceBullish for Bitcoin? US SEC reconsiders rejected Bitwise ETF

A Bitcoin exchange-traded fund (ETF) has long been hailed as the Holy Grail for widespread Bitcoin adoption. Since a Bitcoin ETF would mimic the price of BTC, it allows investors to buy into the crypto market without having to jump through the complicated hoops associated with buying Bitcoin. They can enter the market through traditional investment rails without the steep learning curve, concerns over storing their private keys, or opening an account on an exchange. ETFs are far more widely understood as an investment vehicle than cryptocurrencies. This means, in theory, that a Bitcoin ETF would allow for easy onboarding of traditional investors looking to get into BTC without needing to learn about the complexities of digital assets.
