Glassnode believes that "miners have reduced bitcoin sales, and investors are taking profits"

According to the research company Glassnode, miners have begun to accumulate reserves in bitcoins. Long-term investors, on the other hand, are trying to get rid of their assets in order to lock in profits. The Glassnode report says that in January, miners were actively selling almost all of the mined BTC, however, in February, the volume of sales decreased significantly. This could mean that miners are hoping for an increase in the value of bitcoin. “This suggests that miners have either completed adequate sales to cover costs, or could also mean they see Tesla's vote of confidence as fair reason to keep a strong grip on their treasuries," analysts say.

Analysts: 5 services store more than 50% of cryptocurrencies that were obtained illegally

New York Attorney General Laetitia James has accused the creators of the cryptocurrency investment application Coinseed of fraud. The state prosecutor's office believes that entrepreneurs lured out $1 million from investors through hidden fees and implausible statements. The company also issued a CSD token, which actually "had no functionality" in the Coinseed app. The prosecutor's office intends to bring to justice not only the company, but also two of its top managers. The allegations are centered around the 2017 ICO of Coinseed. Coinseed, according to preliminary data, received about $100,000 through the sale of 200,000 CSD tokens. Also, the prosecutor's office is confident that the company was engaged in operations with cryptocurrencies without registering as a broker-dealer. “Attorney General James seeks to stop Coinseed and the two individual defendants from further operating as unregistered commodities broker-dealers through their mobile application, as well as return investments of Coinseed’s worthless cryptocurrency, the CSD token,” according to a press release from the Attorney General's Office in New -York.

OKCoin plans to delist Bitcoin Cash and Bitcoin SV

The largest cryptocurrency platform OKCoin has planned to delist Bitcoin Cash and Bitcoin SV. According to the CEO of Hong Fang, new users of OKCoin often come to invest in BTC, but by mistake, they buy BCH or BSV. Among other reasons for the failure of bitcoin forks - a controversial figure of the creator of BSV Craig Wright. The entrepreneur has already stated that it was he who created bitcoin. “This is not an easy decision. We had a choice and there is collateral damage, but we had to stand up for the bigger principle we believe in. On the one hand we feel very strongly about protecting the open-source ethos, but on the other, if we do something about it, that would conflict with our principle of being a neutral platform. We wouldn’t have changed that if it weren’t for Craig Wright posting these threats to the open-source dev community. We think these threats are very destructive to development and Bitcoin as a whole, "- Fang said.

However, he stressed “Bitcoin uses more electricity per transaction than any other method known to mankind, and, so, you know, it’s not a bad climate thing. If it’s green electricity and it’s not crowding out other uses, eventually, you know, maybe that’s okay. I don’t see the topic as deeply related even though you might label me a Bitcoin skeptic, ” said the billionaire.

Jurrien Timmer, Director of Global Macro at Fidelity Investments, shared his vision of the prospects for the main cryptocurrency as an investment asset.
