Bitcoin in August
August has witnessed the rapid devaluation of Bitcoin, accelerated by fundamental data and augmented by technical glitches. The possible forking on the minds of the Bitcoin community, the repeated blows following the Mt Gox disaster and the effects of the BitLicense have cast a bearish shadow over the market which resulted in a month that managed to breach significant lows.
“After the stunning price action of the last couple weeks we have seen BTCUSD grind up the traders seeing patterns that aren’t there, complete chopfest. Rather than whittling away hard earned profits remember NO position IS a position — just need to know when them time is. Just like me, many other traders in the Whaleclub believe that sometimes not trading is a right decision and people should appreciate that.” BTCVIX, Professional Bitcoin Trader
Post the flash crash last week, the market has tested 200 and has been on a correction curve ever since. With many countries calling for increased regulation, let’s see how market emotions fared last week.
Nigeria’s central bank has called for Bitcoin regulation in order to stop money laundering and avoid international penalties. Dr. Okwu Nnanna the governor of the financial system at Nigeria’s Central Bank has cited that cryptocurrencies have no borders and hence are an easy channel for money laundering and thus there is a need to monitor them. AB 1236, a proposed California law to regulate virtual currencies has faced lot of opposition from industry lawyers.
It has now been amended saying companies that take ‘full custody’ of the currency are to be licensed and the bill is being backed by other major companies who are mostly made up of software developers. Another important country to look out for whose ecommerce demographic can play a pivotal role in the development of bitcoin system would be India.
With major companies like Microsoft and IBM backing bitcoin based startups, the Governor of RBI has made it clear that cryptocurrencies are being observed for now and would be regulated in the future.
The collapse of Mt Gox has racked up many controversies and the latest one, the arrest of Mark Karpeles, is over the issue of a fresh warrant for allegations that he has pocketed over $2.6 million from the company funds of Mt Gox. While Japan’s cryptocurrency scenario is restructuring for the best after the impact of Mt Gox, the Japanese Government has decided to regulate cryptocurrencies so as to avoid the risk of money laundering and terrorist funding.
How these coordinated regulations among different countries would affect/aid the growth and development of bitcoin is to be seen. While the ‘one-off’ depreciation of the Chinese Yuan has beaten the stock markets down in the USA and China, BTC China’s Greg Wolfson has remarked that the corresponding dip in prices in bitcoin is not devastating and in the times of uncertainty just like Gold, people are turning towards bitcoin as their safe haven.
The immediate correction after the dip is being seen as people hedge their positions in bitcoin.
Meanwhile on the Korean front, things are looking bright with a new exchange traded fund (ETF) tracking the value of bitcoin planned for launch on Korea Exchange next year.
This news coupled with Korean Bitcoin Exchange ‘Korbit’ announcing the launch of Bitwire, which allows people to send money using Bitcoin to any Korean bank account in less than two hours, the bitcoin ecosystem in Korea is trending towards a positive position.
On the European continent, the sentiment is consolidating with the launch of Mycelium Gear with Cashila’s API being integrated, this enables merchants to accept bitcoins that are automatically converted to Euros.
The financial crisis in Greece is here to stay for some time and bitcoin services providers like Cubit are trying to do what they can to help. Cubit in coordination with BTC-Greece is helping Greek citizens move their money out of the country to business partners and suppliers.
The aim is to try and work around the various capital controls that have been enforced in Greece in the hope that some private businesses can get back up and running once more. They have plans to install 1000 ATMS in order to make the this work. Even in the Black Sea Basin there are more than 13,600 locations where you can access bitcoin related stores, ATM and service providers.
On a corporate front, things have been picking up pace with Intel expressing its intention to unify the Internet of Things with bitcoin transactions. World Wide Web creator Tim-Berners-Lee leads the W3C to establish online payment standards, including Bitcoin, another sign of positive acceptance.
UBS’s Alex Batlin’s statements about Blockchain, saying that the technology will be an opportunity or threat to companies like UBS basing on how quick they act on it, has once again clarified that the technology is here to stay and is slowly gaining traction.
Patrick Byrne, the founder of Overstock.com, has acquired a broker-dealer firm built deep into the DNA of Wall Street. When the technology at the center of the acquisition is switched on, Byrne said, it will mark the first time the decentralized ledger behind bitcoin is plugged directly into Wall Street. This way it will be possible to bridge the gap between bitcoin technology and the blockchain.
With Coinbase reaching a valuation of $1 billion, it is listed as one of the top 50 tech startups in the USA. Fortifying their market share, they have launched services to purchase bitcoins through debit cards and credit cards and most recently launched in Canada.
While the service providing companies are doing well, the exchanges have taken a back step last week. The Bitfinex trade engine was blamed for the flash crash and many people experienced problems with exiting their positions during the crash, Australian Exchange, iGot, halted their trading activity and this has led to angst among its traders and customers.
So in conclusion, it is fair to say this past week of has seen lots turmoil in bitcoin trading with loads of negative factors contributing to the market sentiment bearish.
Long Term Technical Analysis
On a weekly scale, the market has tested its long term support level at 200 and retraced quickly to 227. The bearish arc of this swing was a strong move ranging over a month, driven by fundamental factors. The Bollinger bands in the weekly chart still remain parallel showing that the market is in bounds and judging by the regression lines, is setting up for a bull trend after consolidation.
On a long term scale, RSI is approaching oversold region while MACD just took a bearish turn crossing the signal line. Since the market is yet to consolidate, taking a long term position right as of now wouldn’t be feasible. Short term trades around 224 region with stop loss around the lows of previous week’s candle, targeting 5 SMA would be feasible. Long term trades can be planned on basis of consolidation. As soon as both Bollinger and 5 SMA become trending in the upward direction after significant consolidation, entering into trades with a long term plan would be profitable. Proper entry points for such trades would be around 220 region with stops below 217. With Market trending, possible exit points could be 266, 300 and 317.
If the market breaks out on the downside, breaking the support zone at 200, possible targets can be 157 and further drop in prices would seem likely.
Midterm Technical Analysis
In the daily chart, the support encountered around 217 region was breached and market has now found long term support at 200. With the Bollinger bands and SMA’s pointing downwards, the setup is going to remain bearish for some time until a base of consolidation is formed. The descending triangle as shown in the daily chart between the downward trend line and support line at 200 might possibly see good number of volumes being traded in the coming days. In which direction the break out would be or the setup would change will depend on how the market approaches the vertex of the triangle.
If the Bollinger bands and short term SMA’s don’t straighten out or change direction, the break out might as well be in the downward direction, continuing the set trend. The MACD is about to cross the signal line and turn bullish, RSI has crossed 30 from the downside indicating impending bullishness in the market but when the bull run takes off is to be seen.
In the medium term, it appears that it is going to be bearish/sideways for some time. Shorting opportunities at the trend line and retracement trades with 5 SMA as support hold good potential.
Short term Technical Analysis
On a short term scale, the market has retraced over 220 levels and is expected to trade in this range for some time before either consolidating and going for a reversal or crashing down further more.
We can observe that 100 SMA is offering good support and market has not been able to go beyond 34 SMA. Picking longs over 100 SMA with 34 SMA as target would be a good short term trade. With the Bollinger bands and SMA’s still pointing downwards and higher time frame charts supporting, shorting around 34 SMA would be a good option.
The possible targets for such trades would be 100 SMA and if the market gets further trendy, a crash down back to 200 levels can also be expected, although these trades have to be done with tight stop loss. The MACD and RSI don’t give much indication as the market is sideways in the short term and retracing.
Sentiment Analysis
This week saw a lot of action with countries announcing regulation moves and unveiling of technologies which ease bitcoin and blockchain adoption. While the sentiment was bearish majorly, let’s take a look at what happened in the market:
The Bank of England has announced that Bitcoin is ‘harder money’ than Gold because of Deflation. During a presentation on digital currencies, Andy Haldane, Chief Economist and the Executive Director of Monetary Analysis and Statistics of the Bank of England stated the above statement explaining that sustained adoption would see ongoing deflation.
An article from ibtimes has given a thorough analysis of how adopting blockchain technology to the existing banking system would be difficult and how Deutsche bank’s economist sees blockchain as a threat because of the lack of the IT infrastructure to support the technology involved. On educational front, Stanford has joined NYU and Duke University in offering bitcoin course, Princeton has launched its own bitcoin course on Coursera, strengthening the sentiment that cryptocurrencies are here to stay and further studies and research in these fields embedded into the course work is a strong possibility.
On the technological front, with e-coin launching Bitcoin Debit card affiliate program, which aims at bridging the gap between traditional financial services and bitcoin, it’s now possible to load bitcoins into debit cards and make payments for the transactions. With Coinbase also enabling purchase of bitcoin through debit-card/credit-card, we are now in a transformative phase where the traditional financial services are being used to develop and adopt systems that would be framework for the future bitcoin usage.
How the technology will evolve to accommodate or change the traditional banking system is to be seen.
Developments in Blockchain
On August 20th, Nasdaq revealed its plans with the underlying technology of Bitcoin and Blockchain. In an interview with efinancialnews Fredrik Voss, Vice President and head of Blockchain strategy at Nasdaq answered questions about how the program is progressing and what other applications Nasdaq is thinking of.
Nasdaq is planning to launch the private market initiative later this year and is clearly looking at commercial uses for the Blockchain now. The application of distributed ledgers in financial markets for things like settlement and custody, to create efficiency in back-office processes is the primary aim.
Another application of Blockchain this week would be the launch of John McAfee SwiftMail which is a new free peer-to-peer, proof-of-work, encrypted mail system that uses the technology underlying Bitcoin to replace email. The system is said to have very high encryption as privacy is one of the key aspects of SwiftMail.
Technocorner
On the techspace, what has been hogging all the limelight is the new chip for Antminer S7 by Bitmain that is believed to be more powerful than its predecessor. Bitmain, the bitcoin mining ASIC provider, announced on August 20th it is launching its fourth-generation ASIC, the BM1385. This chip is claimed to generate a 45 percent increase in hashrate while needing 50 percent less electricity than its former chip, the BM1384.
Another interesting development would be Netcoins which can supposedly turn any device (iPad, Android devices) into a bitcoin ATM. It is ideally designed for retailers to enable transactions in bitcoin and attract tech savvy customers.
News that’s also been doing rounds is about the Mike Tyson ATM. While initially the prospect was heralded to be a scam, the ATM was launched in Las Vegas with Bitcoin Direct backing the launch.
While security threats in Windows 10 has put the wallet developers in a tight situation, the iOS space is now crowded with launch of new wallets everyday making it hard for the users to choose from the many apps. Most people believe that the advanced bitcoin demographic belongs to iOS users and this is the primary reason for the competition while some say that the lack of a secure wallet in Android and security issues with Windows has led to this development.

[Table] I work for the fraud department for one of the largest USA banks AMA

Verified? (This bot cannot verify AMAs just yet)
Date: 2014-11-04
Link to submission (Has self-text)
Questions Answers
What's the biggest "Oh shit" moment you've encountered in the fraud department? Biggest "Oh shit"? I had a lady that did gave identity theft and it was crazy elaborate. Not only did they intercept a new card, they signed up for FedEx and had a card rerouted to a FedEx store with a fake ID and picked up the card. Activated it then charge over 2 grand in a single day.
Thanks for the AMA! I have 3 questions. What is the most common type of fraud you deal with? Assuming you had their identity, what is/is there restitution or punishment for an individual who unsuccessfully tries to steal a customer's money? Do you attempt to track down people trying to engage in fraudulent behavior? As stated above. Counterfeit would be the most common. Basically someone copies a debit or credit card and sells the info online. Next type would be card info gained from merchants when a merchant is compromised.
Normally banks won't go after a perp if they try a charge and it gets denied. It's all because the funds weren't spent and the charge never accepted. So we usually let the customer know to pursue it with the local police.
I don't track people down myself. We do have a claims department and legal department that does assist with local and federal police. They are the ones that take down perps. So whenever you hear about someone getting caught for identity theft or a crime ring busted, your bank had some hand in it.
Why is fraud most frequently in these states? What isn't about these states that is being exploited? Well if you look at this way. These areas like Los Angeles, Las Vegas, New York, all have high population density. So these perps put a device on a card reader at a high volume gas station. They sit and wait. 4 hour of work could probably net about 500-1000 cards. They sell all those numbers off and make bank. That's why.
Where as in a smaller populated area they will get maybe 50-100 in 4 hours. It's all about the numbers.
What do you actually do? I deal with specifically counterfeit and friendly fraud.
I seriously have no idea why it's called friendly fraud. It's basically fraud committed by the customer to the bank ie fake checks, stolen checks, forged checks.
I used to look for fraud charges on consumer debit or credit cards. That's a whole other deal. People spend crazy on credit cards vs debit cards.
You mention stolen checks, do you actually look at people's signatures to determine fakes or do you wait for people to call and complain? Do you ever catch things before the customer knows? Look at signatures to determine if it's the same person writing it out, or if it was a stolen check and determine if said person actually wrote it out or someone else. I usually don't contact them, I submit a form and explain why we should put a hold on the account.
I always catch the customer committing the fraud before any serious damage happens. You would not believe how stupid people can be.
On top of that, I also look for forged money orders. You wouldn't believe how easy it is to spot a fake check, a forged money order or a stolen check. These people think it doesn't get by us. They also deposit it through an atm which automatically takes a picture of the check and stores it for me to look at.
Does the bank ever recoup losses from fraud? Banks normally recoup because of charge back rights. So if the bank had the right, the store or merchant loses. If it's atm fraud, banks losses. I've actually seen accounts where some guy had lost over $35k in atm fraud alone.
What would it take to implement better security for credit cards? You said yourself that copying credit cards is incredibly common and easy, so why not make a card that is not copyable? I've never heard of successful fraud with bitcoin... Well, you will see changes soon because most banks will be switching to a chip and pin system.
Now you or anyone can stop the human tenacity to copy cards. It will happen.
Bitcoin will not be used because no bank had the structure nor software for it. That would take years and millions of dollars to make and implement. Not to mention all the payment processing companies would need to change it.
How much of the fraud that does go on is perpetrated by people working within banks? Actually fraud doesn't happen to often and gets caught pretty quickly considering how stupid people can be.
Does the corporate culture ever feel stifling, unfriendly, or more focused on petty things like attire than important things like skill and effort? No. Where I work there is really no dress code except you know nothing too revealing and nothing too exotic.
How often does the FBI wind up getting involved? Now the FBI do get involved when there is large amounts of cards being compromised with the same fraud trend. That all happens with our legal team and Visa/Mastercard/AMEX.
Do not spell your name. It's 2014, we have computers with your info. Then how will the bank know that they are speaking with the card holder? Just remember that a perp can call in and pose as you if they have enough info.
That would be a reason not to tell you our name at all. We look for subtle clues and I have spoken to the actual perp trying to pose as a cardholder. I had one recently that passed through our automated system but when I talked to him, he had a Russian accent.
TIL Russian accent makes you a "perp" Look down below. The guy on the account vs the guy on the phone, 2 different people.
Why does the US not yet have chip&pin? Because the banks and merchant are too cheap to switch over. Now that fraud is running rampant with counterfeit and banks are losing more and more money per year, they decided to switch.
Also fun fact: Banks lose more than $100 million a year in fraud alone.
Do not use the word "hack" because you're using it wrong. Exact quote My account got hacked! No, your card got copied, or no your iTunes is being used by your child (I cannot say that, I wish I could but I do ask if their kids use itunes)
How do people use it incorrectly? So many times that iTunes got hacked. In actuality it's their kids or spouse.
In a general sense any unauthorized access to an account (like iTunes) could be considered "hacking" but I see your point and that would certainly be annoying. Right but did you know that any iTunes account needs a debit or credit card for it to be established? Not only that but alot of parents sset up kids account with their own cards and lo and behold, it gets charged.
Another question that came to mind is that many banks will ask, when you call in, to have you state your name and birthdate to verify your identity. This seems a small hurdle, what's the point of these questions, and if it is for actual validation shouldn't something a bit less common such as my last transaction be used? Actually, yes it's used for verification. Most fraud teams are trained to listen for subtle clues to know if we are talking with the card holder.
Like most people know their date of birth or last 4 of their social. If a perp calls in there are things they do like pausing or taking time to answer. So we use these to make sure we are speaking with the card holder.
Do you think the implementation of ApplePay will decrease the chance of fraud like Apple claims that it will? From what I understand the card information is never available to the vendors such as target, home depot, etc. Apple pay is just like every other electronic wallet. I still don't get why it's more popular than others since it charges the most for it. Do I think it reduces fraud? Yes and no.
You also have to look at people open up emails and will follow links so there are ways to compromise an electronic wallet.
If I get my credit card stolen (actual card), find out 4 hours later they've eaten at a few fancy restaurants and bought some stuff at best buy, and then call and report my card stolen... what is the process usually like from there? How likely is it that the other person ultimately gets caught? Do they just call the individual places and tell them to look at their cameras? How likely are they to be caught? I have no idea and the reason is that it's handled separately by a different department. I believe they do a investigation or if it is small enough, the bank will usually eat the costs.
What is the most common sort of fraud you encounter? Counterfeit fraud is the most common. Lots of people get their card copied. It isn't that rare. Lately it has been major compromises with a lot of merchants like home depot, target, Kmart and the likes.
Okay, so I look like I'm in Mexico and Mexican and all, but really... I'm Nigerian! Wanna partner up? I'm not interested in helping you unless you're interested in helping yourself and your family. I'm a family kind of guy and hope to see your kids grow up to be trust fund babies. So... how 'bout it? Lol, I have actually talked to customers that fell for that email and gave out ALL of their info. Also have had customers fall for the Microsoft tech support call and allowing them to get access of their computer.
We are talking about frog protection, right? I hate that fucking commercial. It gets it so wrong and offices are not that brightly lit.
How many people work on a case in relation to the amount of money? Be more specific?
Usually cases are worked by an individual and calls are made to verify activity.
Do you handle lots of money differently than a little money? I personally don't handle any money. All accounts relating to debit and credit cards.
