🗞 Bitcoin Quiet at $9.3K While DeFi Gets Loud

It’s a lethargic Thursday across most markets, including bitcoin. Yet, on a longer-term view, the big growth story remains the Ethereum network’s DeFi movement, which continues to help drive ether’s performance in 2020.

Bitcoin (BTC) was trading around $9,395 as of 20:00 UTC (4 p.m. ET), gaining 0.97% over the previous 24 hours.

At 00:00 UTC on Thursday (8:00 p.m. Wednesday ET), bitcoin was changing hands around $9,443 on spot exchanges such as Coinbase. It then dipped to as low as $9,365. While the charts were relatively flat Thursday, the price was below its 10-day and 50-day moving averages – a bearish signal for market technicians who study charts.

“The market has been very flat over the month of June,” said Denis Vinokourov, head of research for digital asset brokerage Bequant. “But there is room for a break out next week heading into options and futures expiry dates.”

Indeed, there are a number of bitcoin options expiring next week, on June 26, according to data aggregator Skew.

🗞 😱 How a potential fraud from Wirecard (Payment Company) might put an end to most CryptoCards? 😱

Today, Wirecard's shares are under pressure after the German payments group said €1.9bn of cash was missing and that “spurious cash balances” might have been provided to its auditor by a third party.

Ernst & Young told them that there were indications a trustee of Wirecard bank accounts had attempted “to deceive the auditor”, deepening the crisis at a group long seen as a great hope for Germany’s tech sector.

This is NOT a surprise if you ask anyone working in finance, this group has been known and attacked by activist funds for its opacity and misbehavior.

However, Crypto.com is not the only provider that could be affected by this.

The company is currently the debit card issuer for Wirex, TenX and CryptoPay.
