So, I've a question. If it is suspected that 'Satoshi' may own 1 million BTC, and these twin brothers own 1 million BTC, that's fully 1/20th of all the bitcoins that ever will be created. Doesn't that, by definition, break the concept of the BTC as a decentralized, safe and stable currency?

They effectively control 10% of the possible market, and 20% of the current market. Isn't that a fundamental flaw in BTC? If so, how do we address and fix it?
Edit: 1/20th each, in title Edit (part deux): So, we're all okay with the ability for someone to purchase mass amount of BTC and effectively control BTC? It just seems to me that there is a bit of a vulnerability there. For someone who REALLY didn't like BTC, it would be a matter of a few million $ to destroy it. I just verified, I was incorrect in my title but I cannot change it.. Yes, the brothers own 1%, not 1Million.

Buy Bitcoin not Gold- Mike Novogratz

Michael Novogratz is a veteran Wall Street fund manager and cryptocurrency maven who readily acknowledges when he earns a “black eye,” while Dave Portnoy is the brash founder of a media empire who only recently began touting stocks and has disparaged Warren Buffett.
Their backgrounds and personalities may be vastly different, but both are now offering the same investment recommendation: Bitcoin is a better long-term bet than gold.
In an appearance on Bloomberg Television, Novogratz — founder of Galaxy Digital Holdings Ltd. — said that although he sees gold climbing above its record highs, Bitcoin is still the more worthy investment because it’s “harder to buy” than the traditional haven. He said about 25% of his net worth is tied up in the cryptocurrency.
“It’s only got a $20 billion market cap, while gold is over $10 trillion,” Novogratz said of Bitcoin. “So it’s got a long way to go to catch gold in terms of just adoption.” Still, he doesn’t recommend beginners put in more than 1-2% of their money into the digital currency.
Novogratz said Bitcoin had “crossed the Rubicon” on the question of whether it’s a good store of value. Now, more institutions and banks are considering how to get into the cryptocurrency, compared with a few years earlier when they viewed it more skeptically, he said.
Barstool Sports founder Portnoy, meanwhile, was sold on the cryptocurrency after being pitched by Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss. In a video posted on Portnoy’s Twitter feed, the twin brothers — who founded crypto exchange Gemini Trust — say Bitcoin has the potential to replace gold as a store of value. Their reasoning? They claim that Elon Musk has plans to mine gold from asteroids.

In a tweet after his interview with the Winklevoss twins, Portnoy suggested he has bought $1 million worth of Bitcoin.
Bitcoin, the largest cryptocurrency, has been on a roller coaster in 2020. After sliding below $4,000, it’s zoomed up and is around $11,800. It’s seen further acceptance in the mainstream investment community, experienced a “halving” where the rate of Bitcoin created dropped by 50% as of May, and seen correlations with gold rise to records.
In the case of bullion, prices have been on a tear this year as central banks worldwide took steps to shore up ailing economies in the wake of the coronavirus crisis and investors sought a haven from the turmoil. The precious metal is up 28% this year to about $1,945, with Credit Suisse Group raising its bullion forecast for next year to $2,500 due to a “perfect storm” of factors.

Free $10 in Bitcoin by signing up for Gemini Exchange (best for those who already have a means of buying/selling crypto for £GBP)

Founded by the Winklevoss twins (you may know them as the brothers Mark Zuckerberg shafted when he started Facebook; they're also known as the first Bitcoin billionaires), Gemini is arguably the most regulated exchange in crypto.
New signups to Gemini using a referral link will receive US$10 worth of Bitcoin deposited into their accounts after buying or selling $100 or more worth of crypto in one transaction within 30 days of opening their account. (Alternatively: non-ref link, which won't provide the bonus.)
Gemini doesn't allow you to buy directly using sterling, so this one will be most useful if you already have a means of buying crypto, such as coinbase or crypto.com.
It's pretty straightforward:
  1. Open an account at Gemini Exchange using the referral link rpvwgzf6 (or non-ref for no $10 bonus);
  2. Verify your identity and address. This doesn't take long;
  3. Buy or sell $100 worth of cryptocurrency.
    1. Transfer your crypto to your new gemini account and swap it for something else, like perhaps DAI (I suggest DAI as it's a stablecoin, i.e. its value won't be volatile).
    2. Optional: raise a support ticket and request that they turn on the "activetrader" interface for your account, which will allow you to trade it back cheaper. They usually do this extremely quickly. NB Your first trade, i.e. the one that prompts the $10 bonus, must be through the regular interface, not activetrader.
    3. Either trade your new asset back to whatever you originally had (for lower fees if activetrader has been turned on) or send the new one back to your other exchange to sell for GBP. The first 10 withdrawals every month from Gemini incur no fees.
  4. $10 in BTC should be in your wallet within two business days. It appeared for me overnight the following day.

Twitter hack: FBI investigates major attack

Twitter hack: FBI investigates major attack


The FBI has launched an investigation after hackers hijacked Twitter accounts of a number of high-profile US figures in an apparent Bitcoin scam.
"The accounts appear to have been compromised in order to perpetuate cryptocurrency fraud," said the bureau, urging the public to be vigilant.
Elon Musk, Bill Gates and Joe Biden were among those hit in what Twitter said was a "co-ordinated" attack.
Their official accounts requested donations in the cryptocurrency.
"Everyone is asking me to give back," said a tweet from the account of Mr Gates, the Microsoft founder. "You send $1,000, I send you back $2,000."
The US Senate Commerce committee has demanded Twitter brief it about Wednesday's incident by 23 July.
Twitter said the hackers had targeted its employees "with access to internal systems and tools".
"We know they [the hackers] used this access to take control of many highly-visible (including verified) accounts and Tweet on their behalf," the company said in a series of tweets.
It added that "significant steps" had been taken to limit access to such internal systems and tools while the company's investigation continues.
The tech firm has also blocked users from being able to tweet Bitcoin wallet addresses for the time being.


The UK's National Cyber Security Centre said its officers had "reached out" to the tech firm. "We would urge people to treat requests for money or sensitive information on social media with extreme caution," it said in a statement.
US politicians also have questions. Republican Senator Josh Hawley has written to the company asking if President Trump's account had been vulnerable.
President Trump's account was not compromised, the White House said.
The chair of the Senate Commerce committee has also been in contact with Twitter.
"It cannot be overstated how troubling this incident is, both in its effects and in the apparent failure of Twitter's internal controls to prevent it," Senator Roger Wicker wrote to the firm.
One cyber-security expert said that the breach could have been a lot worse in other circumstances.
"If you were to have this kind of incident take place in the middle of a crisis, where Twitter was being used to either communicate de-escalatory language or critical information to the public, and suddenly it's putting out the wrong messages from several verified status accounts - that could be seriously destabilising," Dr Alexi Drew from King's College London told the BBC.

Emergency response

Twitter earlier had to take the extraordinary step of stopping many verified accounts marked with blue ticks from tweeting altogether.
Password reset requests were also being denied and some other "account functions" disabled.
By 20:30 EDT (00:30 GMT Thursday) users with verified account started to be able to send tweets again, but Twitter said it was still working on a fix.


Dmitri Alperovitch, who co-founded cyber-security company CrowdStrike, told Reuters news agency: "This appears to be the worst hack of a major social media platform yet."
On the official account of Mr Musk, the Tesla and SpaceX chief appeared to offer to double any Bitcoin payment sent to the address of his digital wallet "for the next 30 minutes".
"I'm feeling generous because of Covid-19," the tweet added, along with a Bitcoin link address.
The tweets were deleted just minutes after they were first posted.
But as the first such tweet from Mr Musk's account was removed, another one appeared, then a third.
Others targeted included:
  • reality TV star Kim Kardashian West
  • former US President Obama
  • media billionaire Mike Bloomberg
  • the ride-sharing app Uber
  • the iPhone-maker Apple
The campaign of Joe Biden, who is the current Democratic presidential candidate, said Twitter had "locked down the account within a few minutes of the breach and removed the related tweet".

Instagram message

The BBC can report from a security source that a web address - cryptoforhealth.com - to which some hacked tweets directed users was registered by a cyber-attacker using the email address [email protected].
The name "Anthony Elias" was used to register the website, but may be a pseudonym - it appears to be a play on "an alias".
Cryptoforhealth is also a registered user name on Instagram, apparently set up contemporaneously to the hack.
The description of the profile read "It was us", alongside a slightly smiling face emoticon.
The Instagram profile also posted a message that said: "It was a charity attack. Your money will find its way to the right place."
In any case, the real identities of the perpetrators are as yet unknown.


Cameron Winklevoss, who was declared the world's first Bitcoin billionaire in 2017 along with his twin brother Tyler, tweeted a message on Wednesday warning people not to participate in the "scam".


In the short time it was online, the link displayed in the tweets of targeted accounts received hundreds of contributions totalling more than $100,000 (£80,000), according to publicly available blockchain records.
The Twitter accounts targeted have millions of followers.


Last year, Twitter chief executive Jack Dorsey's account was hacked, but the company said it had fixed the flaw that left his account vulnerable.
Dr Drew recently co-authored a paper warning about the potential of Twitter being used to sow disinformation.
She said the latest incident highlighted the need for all major social media platforms to check their security measures, particularly in the run up to the US presidential vote in November.
"Social media companies such as Twitter and, Facebook all have a duty to consider the damage and influence their platforms can have on the 2020 election, and I think some companies are taking that more seriously than others," she told the BBC.
"Twitter actually has a good history of being forward-thinking and proactive in this space. But whatever the source of this attack [it seems they have] still not done enough."
