The Bitcoin Movement, in collaboration with the rapper Zuby, is launching a new collection whose authenticity is registered on the VeChain.

On Friday, online retailer Anon System Movement (BTCMVMNT) launched a limited streetwear fashion collection that comes with a „proof of authenticity“ registered on the Blockchain for each garment.

The 300-piece collection, designed with the help of British influencer and rapper Zuby, consists of 50 hoodies, 125 caps and 125 T-shirts, all of which are emblazoned with the „21 Million“ logo. This is again an allusion to the maximum amount of Bitcoin in circulation.

Each piece in the collection, which has the motto „Take the Power Back“, has a chipset that is in turn connected to the VeChain block chain. Using a smartphone app from the Bitcoin Movement, customers can then scan a sewn-in sticker, which allows real-time product information about the piece in question to be read from the VeChain.

If the piece is genuine, the message „100% genuine“ is then displayed. The app also displays the version number of the garment and the unique transaction ID that anchors the piece to the block chain.

Daryl Kelly, the founder of Bitcoin Movement explains:

„I wanted our first collection as a Blockchain Limited Edition to capture the Bitcoin philosophy. It is designed to reflect the very qualities that have made Bitcoin so disruptive, successful and attractive to those seeking truth and transparency. The market-leading Blockchain from VeChain therefore fits perfectly with our movement“.

This new collection is not the first time that limited edition garments have been combined with a Blockchain to guarantee their authenticity. More and more fashion designers around the world are using the technology for their supply chains or to prove the authenticity of their pieces.

On September 3, the well-known Alexander McQueen brand again launched a new block-chain-supported fashion label that allows both designers and consumers to register and resell their garments.

Pompe de prix de l’option Bitcoin BTC

Bitcoin Pro a atteint une clôture quotidienne de 15707 $ le 11 novembre, marquant la clôture quotidienne la plus élevée à ce jour en 2020.

Le prix tente actuellement de sortir d’un triangle ascendant, ce qui devrait réussir et pourrait amener le prix vers la prochaine résistance à 17 000 $.

Bitcoin atteint la clôture quotidienne la plus élevée de 2020

Le 12 novembre, le prix du Bitcoin a repris son mouvement à la hausse et a atteint un sommet de 15991 $.

Même si BTC est retombé à 15707 $, laissant une mèche supérieure dans son sillage, il a quand même fermé plus haut que le précédent sommet de 2020 de 15610 $ le 6 novembre.

BTC a poursuivi son ascension aujourd’hui et se négocie actuellement juste au-dessus de 15900 $.

Le graphique à plus court terme sur six heures montre que le prix est en train de sortir de la zone de résistance horizontale de 15800 $ et d’un triangle ascendant dans lequel il se négocie depuis le 3 novembre.

Les indicateurs techniques sont haussiers puisque le RSI est supérieur à 50. Pour compléter cela, la ligne MACD est au-dessus de 0 et l’histogramme MACD est en train de devenir positif.

Une évasion qui parcourt toute la hauteur du motif porterait le prix à 17 200 $.

Cybersecurity firm CipherTrace says crypto-related crime declined in 2020.

That said, the number of thefts, hacks and frauds in the Ethereum Code sector has skyrocketed.

The overall reduction in crypto crime is likely due to better security policies within companies.

CipherTrace analyzed cryptocrime in 2020. The blockchain security firm said crime across the crypto industry has declined, while decentralized finance (DeFi) related crime has increased.

Decentralized crime

As crime looms over cryptocurrency and blockchain projects, we see a small glimmer at the end of the tunnel. According to security firm CipherTrace, theft, hacks and fraud declined in 2020 to $ 1.8 billion in losses. However, crime in the DeFi sector has increased.

The $ 1.8 billion figure is less than half of the $ 4.5 billion in crypto-crime in 2019. While it sounds huge, that $ 1.8 billion is only for the first ten months of year, and more crimes may come to light.

Security blanket

CipherTrace CEO Dave Jevans said the exchanges and other crytpo companies have stepped up their security. The cause of this decline is not due to a lack of criminals. On the contrary, companies have heeded the word of security experts, Dave Jevans told Reuters .

Authorities recently turned to CipherTrace for security reasons. In September, the firm said it had created a way to track the transactions of Monero for the US government.

Besides fraud and theft, CipherTrace reported that dark web markets are growing.

The criminal environment of the dark web markets is extremely turbulent. Many dark web markets are opened every year and just as many of them are constantly disappearing, being seized or being faded in some way or another. Yet online black markets are more numerous than ever.

Crypto-crime splits into different branches

While the $ 1.8 billion represents cryptocurrency in general, the value of different industries and types of crime has fluctuated. For example, losses and thefts (excluding fraud) reached $ 468 million in losses in November. This is a 30% increase from the $ 361 million in 2019.

DeFi, always a hot topic, is playing an increasingly important role. About $ 98 million in losses and thefts come from DeFi platforms. DeFi exploded in 2020, with $ 12.6 billion in blocked loans, according to DeFi pulse. This figure is up from just $ 4 billion in August alone.

The most popular DeFi platforms work with open smart contracts, allowing anyone to verify the code and keep their funds safe. As these platforms are automated and “without the need for third parties”, users feel secure. However, according to CipherTrace, criminals take advantage of this provision.

CipherTrace believes that the rise in popularity of DeFi has drawn hackers to the industry. Many DeFi products have been shipped as a result without proper security verification, Jevans said. As a result, bad actors find weaknesses in the code or simply take advantage of naïve users.

Likewise, most DeFi protocols do not have a Customer Verification or Know Your Customer (KYC) process. Therefore, there is no regulatory compliance or oversight in the event of fraud. According to Jevans, this makes DeFi a “safe haven” for criminals.
