The BTC rate on the evening of March 7 fell below the $10,000 mark after reports of a possible hacking of the Binance crypto exchange.
The value of the cryptocurrency fell to 9.4 thousand dollars, by 14:00 Moscow time on March 8, Bitcoin rose to 10 thousand dollars, and then again went down to a decline.
The exchange reported that some users were victims of a phishing attempt, but, according to Binance, the site itself was not hacked. According to Binance, all the assets of customers are safe, the money was not stolen.
CoinDesk adds that the Bitcoin rate was also influenced by the criticism of the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).
The regulator pointed out that some such platforms provide services for trading assets that fall under the definition of securities. That is, the sites operate as exchanges, but they are not registered with the SEC. Thus, investors’ funds are not protected, the commission concluded.
Though the crypto market is still relatively new and lacks many of the traditional institutions of a civilized market, there are projects on the market that seek to indemnify or mitigate the associated risks that investors take when deciding to invest in projects. Cryptics is one such project that seeks to offer the necessary instruments for alleviating the situation with uncertainty. The concept behind it is to support market participants by providing liquidity on exchanges and a safety cushion for retail investors by creating a platform that connects market players and develops algorithms to predict changes in the value of cryptocurrencies. Such instruments based on highly advanced scoring models involving machine learning and AI are incomparable with human intuition that even the luckiest and most prudent investors could ever be endowed with. The multitude of factors involved in predicting a cryptocurrency’s rise or fall are all taken into account by the algorithms that Cryptics employs. Investors should consult such projects as the expense is well worth the ensured profit and peace of mind.
