Bitcoin price news LIVE – Ethereum & BTC rise as Twitter boss Jack Dorsey gets behind crypto plus Dogecoin & Cardano


Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey has thrown his weight behind the future of Bitcoin has he backed the importance of the cryptocurrency.

“Bitcoin changes absolutely everything,” Dorsey said yesterday at the Bitcoin 2021 Conference. “I don’t think there is anything more important in my lifetime to work on.”

He added that, “if I were not at Square or Twitter, I would be working on bitcoin. If [bitcoin] needed more help than Square or Twitter, I would leave them for bitcoin. But, I believe both companies have a role to play.”

It comes after Elon Musk said he “misses” Bitcoin after the market’s recent comeback stalled yesterday as several major coins took a tumble.

The Tesla CEO posted a meme about a couple breaking up over excessive quoting of Linkin Park lyrics. Mr Musk shared the meme with “#Bitcoin” and a heartbreak emoji.

And Bitcoin, Ethereum, Cardano and Dogecoin all fell again after having trended upwards for much of Friday.

The market movements come as Elon Musk took to Twitter to post memes mocking the market downturn.

The multi-billionaire Tesla chief – whose social media activities move the crypto markets like nobody else’s – posted memes of couple’s breaking up tagged with #Bitcoin and a broken heart emoji.

  • CRYPTOCURRENCY DEALERS IN HOT WATER

    IN an investigation set up by the Financial Conduct Authority, the City regulator, it has emerged that up to 50 companies dealing in cryptocurrencies such as bitcoin may be forced to close after failing to meet the UK’s anti-money laundering rules.

    It was announced yesterday that an “unprecedented number” of companies had withdrawn applications from a temporary permit scheme that allowed firms to continue trading until the regulator could approve or reject their operations. 

    A large number of firms have fallen short of anti-money laundering standards put in place to halt criminal organisations from disguising the source of their money.

    Fines or legal action will be issued by the FCA to companies that refuse to shut their businesses down.

  • ELON MUSK SENDS BITCOIN, DOGECOIN AND ETHERIUM VALUES PLUNGING WITH LINKIN PARK MEME TWEET ABOUT ‘THE END’

    ELON Musk sent Bitcoin’s value into free fall after he posted a meme about Linkin Park with the hashtag #Bitcoin and a broken heart emoji.

    The CEO of SpaceX and Tesla tweeted a meme of a split couple discussing lyrics from Linkin Park’s hit In the End suggesting a breakup – like the billionaire’s relationship with Bitcoin.

    “Her: I know I said it would be over between us if you quoted another Linkin Park song but I’ve found someone else,” the meme read. “Him: So in the end it didn’t even matter?”

    Accompanying the meme, which showed a man and a woman distantly sitting next to each other on a couch, was the hashtag #Bitcoin and a broken heart emoji.

    The billionaire’s tweeting caused Bitcoin’s value to decrease by six percent, while other cryptocurrencies like Ethereum (by seven percent) and Dogecoin (by eight percent) also nosedived.

    In a subsequent tweet, Musk posted another meme of a woman facetiming a man saying “I miss you,” and “why are you crying” said the woman, with the man replying “cuz I miss you too.”

  • HOW TO SPOT CRYPTO SCAMS

    CRYPTO scams are popping up all over the internet. We explain how to spot them.

    • Promises of a high or guaranteed return – Does the offer look realistic? Scammers often attract money by making fake promises.
    • Heavy marketing and promotional offers – If they are using marketing tricks to con customers you should beware.
    • Unamed or non-existent team members – Just like any business you should be easily able to find out who is running it.
    • Check the whitepaper – Every crypto firm should have a white paper. This should explain how it plans to grow and make money. If this doesn’t make sense, then it could be because the founders are trying to confuse you.
    • Do your research – Check reviews online and Reddit threads to see what other people think. 
  • EXPLAINED: WILL CHAINLINK GO UP IN VALUE?

    Chainlink is currently trading at $31.77 at the time of writing on Thursday afternoon, according to Coindesk.

    That’s up 2% in the last 24 hours and around 32% since Sunday, when it was trading at $23.71.

    But while Chainlink has been surging, like other cryptocurrencies it can easily tumble again and it’s difficult to predict when.

    Chainlink hit an all time high of $51.24 on May 10, but the cryptocurrency crashed later in the month.

    It’s still trading at around 40% less than that record high

  • EXPLAINED: WHAT IS CHAINLINK?

    Chainlink is a cryptocurrency that was created in 2014 but launched on the market in 2017.

    It was founded by Sergey Nazarov, a 32-year-old entrepreneur, who had previously set up tech platform Smartcontract.com. Chainlink is also a ledger technology – using “blockchain”, like Bitcoin – that companies are using to build new programmes.

    A blockchain is where encrypted data can be transferred securely, making it nearly impossible to duplicate or counterfeit. This ledger is the foundation of any cryptocurrency transaction.

    The cryptocurrency allows people to trade currency or assets digitally outside of any government or bank.

    But Chainlink also aims create a “link” between blockchain and real world applications to open up possibilities for the technology to be used more widely.

  • EXPLAINED: THE 5 RISKS OF CRYPTO INVESTMENTS

    THE Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) has warned people about the risks of investing in cryptocurrencies.

    • Consumer protection: Some investments advertising high returns based on cryptoassets may not be subject to regulation beyond anti-money laundering requirements. 
    • Price volatility: Significant price volatility in cryptoassets, combined with the inherent difficulties of valuing cryptoassets reliably, places consumers at a high risk of losses.
    • Product complexity: The complexity of some products and services relating to cryptoassets can make it hard for consumers to understand the risks. There is no guarantee that cryptoassets can be converted back into cash. Converting a cryptoasset back to cash depends on demand and supply existing in the market. 
    • Charges and fees: Consumers should consider the impact of fees and charges on their investment which may be more than those for regulated investment products.  
    • Marketing materials: Firms may overstate the returns of products or understate the risks involved.

  • EXPERTS DISCUSS CHAINLINK

    Susannah Streeter, a senior analyst at Hargreaves Lansdown said: “Chainlink’s price has been fuelled by speculation by many traders trying to sniff out short term gains rather than belief in its fundamental long term use case.

    She added: “With such volatility, competition in the market and uncertainty surrounding nascent technology, traders should take an extremely cautious approach and only dip their toe into the market with money they can afford to gamble.’’

    Matt McKenna, spokesman at Finder also said: “Chainlink’s price has been following the wider crypto market, which saw a huge sell off during May.

    “Over the past month it is down roughly 20%, but has been showing signs of recovery in the last few days.

    “As with all cryptocurrencies, people should be prepared for extreme volatility, and the very real risk of losing money.”

  • EXPLAINED: WILL THE CRYPTOCURRENCY MARKET RECOVER?

    Cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and Ethereum have dropped in value after making steady made gains over the last week.

    The market has seen a slow recovery from plummeting last month after hitting record highs.

    Thursday saw all the major currencies on CoinMarketCap up for the first time in a while. But this growth appeared to stall on Friday morning with currencies like Bitcoin and Ether returning to the red and the market dropping by around 6%.

    The price of Bitcoin – the largest cryptocurrency – is currently around $36,700 – down around 6%, loosing gains it had recently made.
