Earlier this month we reported on the FTC reaching settlements with several Digital Income Systems defendants.

On May 26th the FTC filed notices of settlement approval for defendants Jennifer Hedrick (aka Jennifer Maurer), Derek Jones Foley and William Foley, Christopher Brandon Frye and Kaitlyn Scott.

The respective defendants settlements will see monetary judgments entered against the Foleys and Hedrick:

  • William and Derek Foley – $2,606,074
  • Brendan Frye – $600,000
  • Jennifer Hedrick – $217,426
  • Kaitlyn Scott – $171,500

The framing of the judgment is $3,595,000 against the Foleys, with the above amounts joint liabilities with Frye, Hedrick and Scott.

Frye’s and Scott’s judgments have been settled via payment of default judgments entered against them last month.

The Foley’s and Hedrick’s judgement will be satisfied by

  1. cleaning out various bank and payment processor accounts;
  2. the liquidation of William Foley’s 2016 Lexus IS 250 and 2018 Toyota Highlander;
  3. cleaning out a Robinhood trading account balance; and
  4. liquidation of Derek Foley’s 2017 Land Rover SUV.

The FTC has agreed to suspension of the remaining judgment balance.

As a result of the settlements, the FTC’s allegations against the Digital Income Systems defendants “will be taken as true”.

Each of the Digital Income Systems defendants are banned from marketing business and/or investment opportunities.

They must also retain business records and report to the FTC for ten to twenty years after the date of their respective settlements.

The last step is the court signing off on the settlement agreements, after which the case will come to a close.

Is Elon Musk’s Remark to #Hashledger Is Implying to #Hedera? Is This a Big Catalyst for HBAR Price?

Published

on

Hedera momentum is building, and with Elon Musk’s mention of #hashledger at the B-word event, it appears like the Hbarians’ celebration is just getting started. Elon Musk was referring to Hedera, as confirmed by a tweet from a founding member of the HBAR community.

HBAR is a cutting-edge technology that is being used by businesses all around the world. Hedera has grown to become one of the largest crypto networks in the world. As additional transactions are added to the network, the speed of transaction verifications rises, but it remains entirely undetected. It’s big and has a lot of uses, and it’s one of the big players.

HBAR Price Analysis

Although the HBAR price is currently bearish, the cryptocurrency price began surging at the start of 2021, and the positive trend lasted until mid-March when it reached an all-time high of $0.45. The currency failed to break through the all-time high price in April before entering a bearish trend that has lasted till today even though the asset was seen trading in the green zone in the past week.

Hbar closed the day at $0.17. Hbar is currently trading at $0.16, after a bearish start to the day. In the previous 24 hours, the price of HBAR has risen 2.51%. Currently, Hbar must avoid the key initial support level of $0.15, which is followed by $0.14 and $0.13. The biggest resistance level on the upside is $0.20, followed by $0.25. As long as it retains a critical support level, HBAR will resume its bullish trend. 

Since its ATH, the lowest price was $ 0.139984. (cycle low). Since the last cycle low, the highest HBAR price was $ 0.212739. (cycle high).

Polkadot Will Compete with Ethereum to Reach a Price of $100, Expects Industry Veteran

Published

on

Crypto-fintech expert and industry veteran Keith Bliss, the president of fintech solutions provider company Capital2Market, believes that Polkadot, the ninth-largest cryptocurrency in the market, may witness significant growth in the next three years

Keith Bliss: A Veteran in the Industry

Keith has remained associated with the fintech industry since the late nineties. At the beginning of his career, he sold time-order-management systems. The large buy-side asset managers were Bliss’s clients. Gradually he moved on to the dealings of electronic trading systems. These systems created a link between the institutional buy-side players and the sell-side players, facilitating seamless equity transactions for Wall Street. 

Bliss has been a witness to the fintech industry’s gradual growth. His experience in the industry makes him optimistic about the evolution of cryptocurrencies and the process of asset tokenization. But his reasons to believe in Polkadot’s potential growth story go far beyond the general hopefulness around the crypto industry.

The Factors Driving Polkadot’s Growth

Keith believes that Polkadot will grow in the imminent future as a competitor to Ethereum. To back his claim, Bliss cites the growing inclination among developers to turn to Polkadot as a foundation for building their platform. But why is it so? 

As we know, Ethereum, unlike Bitcoin, is seen more as an enabler of application development than as a store of value. Its smart contracts and other technological benefits have immensely helped DeFi to grow in applicability and usage. Yet, when developers develop something on Ethereum, the additions get coded right onto its blockchain. With a growing number of applications, these coded additions stunt the transaction speed of Ethereum and take a toll on its scalability. 

Polkadot solves this problem through its bridges. Polkadot can connect with other blockchains through bridges. Such a bridging system allows developers to work with their applications without building right into Polkadot’s main blockchain. Resultantly, Polkadot retains its scalability. However, Bliss does not believe that these advantages would make Polkadot replace Ethereum, as Ethereum already has a much higher adoption rate and is working on future upgrades. But, Polkadot will emerge as one of the strongest competitors of Ethereum. 

Estimating the Future Price of Polkadot

On one hand, Polkadot is a new entrant in reputed exchanges like Coinbase. It also does not have products like Ethereum ETFs or ethereum futures. But, at the same time, it has parachains, independent blockchains that connect to and run off its network. These parachains can attract developers in bulk to turn towards Polkadot as their preferred DeFi application protocol. As the developer pool grows, the Polkadot ecosystem can continue to prove that it’s here for the long term.

Altcoins To Surge Nearly 80% To 150% In Upcoming Bull Run!

Published

on

The crypto space is experiencing a huge roller coaster ride nowadays and the previous day surge was the phenomenal one. Amid the B-Word Event, the Bitcoin price gained a notable push and the other altcoins also ranged above the levels. Currently, the Ethereum price is all set to propel high with notable gains. However, the second half of 2021 is expected to be more fruitful.

It is a known fact that the crypto market flows with the BTC price and hence a substantial jump could ignite the altcoin market. Currently, the price is attempting hard to break the immediate lower high above $33,000. And later the rally above $35,000 seems to be imminent which could ignite the price to head towards $40,000. The price needs to sustain above these levels and this is when the altcoins could rise more than 80%.

The bitcoin price received some bullish moves from the event. The price was pushed to $32,600 and before it could register new highs, a strong rejection wick hindered the uptrend. Currently, the price is trying to hold above $32,000 and in order to continue with a bullish momentum, the price is required to smash $33,000.

Despite a substantial push, the price still failed to smash the upper trend line and initiated a consolidation. The rectangle box signifies crucial ranges to hold on to in order to propel further. The altcoins like Ethereum(ETH), Cardano(ADA), Stellar(XLM), Polygon (MATIC), XRP, AAVE, etc and many more could record a series of double-digit gains in the coming days.
