Bitcoin’s grim close, Tesla’s crypto sell-offs, Ether’s jaw-dropping surge: Hodler’s Digest, April 25–May 1

Top Stories This Week

Bitcoin bulls attack $ 57,000, and altcoins rally as April comes to a close

A sudden bullish surge took traders by surprise as April drew to a close, with Bitcoin staging a 10% rally in a matter of hours.

Highs of $ 58,448.34 helped to erase recent losses — but not entirely.

Data from Bybt shows that BTC’s price fell by 1.98% last month. That’s the first time the world’s biggest cryptocurrency has closed the month of April in the red since 2015.

A contributing factor to upbeat market activity may have been linked to an astounding surge in revenues at MicroStrategy, a company that owns 91,000 BTC.

MicroStrategy CEO Michael Saylor said: “We will continue to acquire and hold additional Bitcoin as we seek to create additional value for shareholders.”

Ethereum’s market cap exceeds platinum’s for the very first time

While Bitcoin had lost its footing for most of the week, Ether has gone from strength to strength.

The No. 2 cryptocurrency continues to break new all-time highs — with the latest record of $ 2,879.75 set on Saturday.

Overall, 2021 promises to be a crucial year for the Ethereum blockchain as the long-awaited Eth2 upgrade takes shape. The network is set to part ways with its proof-of-work consensus algorithm and shift to proof-of-stake, which is set to cut costs and preserve energy.

At $ 330 billion, Ether’s market cap has now exceeded industry giants including Procter & Gamble and PayPal — not to mention platinum. The digital asset is also a stone’s throw away from overtaking The Walt Disney Company and Bank of America.

Tesla books huge profit from Bitcoin sale in Q1 

Tesla sold a portion of its Bitcoin holdings in the first quarter, pocketing a profit of $ 101 million as a result.

The electric vehicle manufacturer announced that it had snapped up Bitcoin worth $ 1.5 billion in February, and this sale amounts to about 10% of its crypto stash.

Crypto Twitter didn’t react kindly to the news, with comedian Dave Portnoy accusing Elon Musk of profiting from a pump-and-dump engineered by his public statements supporting BTC.

Musk rejected these claims and said that he hasn’t sold any of his Bitcoin. He also explained that Tesla executed this transaction “essentially to prove liquidity of Bitcoin as an alternative to holding cash on balance sheet.”

Meanwhile, Musk has continued to champion Dogecoin on his Twitter feed — ahead of him hosting Saturday Night Live on May 8.

Coinbase offers customers a way to purchase crypto using PayPal

There were a series of milestones this week when it comes to simplifying the process of buying crypto… and using it as a payment method.

Coinbase announced that users in the U.S. will now be able to buy digital assets using debit cards and bank accounts linked to their PayPal profiles — giving them a greater choice of digital assets than PayPal alone provides.

Meanwhile, rival exchange Gemini announced that it is teaming up with Mastercard to release a credit card that will allow crypto holders to spend digital assets and receive cash-back rewards in the form of Bitcoin.

Elsewhere, Binance announced that it was launching its own NFT marketplace in June — complete with a “Premium Event” category that is designed to attract big-name signings.

And, if you’re feeling hungry, Bubba Gump Shrimp’s seafood restaurants are going to start accepting Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies in the next 90 days.

The Giving Block launches “Crypto Giving Pledge” to ramp up donation efforts

A leading crypto donations platform has launched a new initiative that’s designed to help the digital assets sector become the most charitable in the world.

The Giving Block has launched a “Crypto Giving Pledge” that encourages investors to pledge at least 1% of their holdings to charities each year and asks businesses in this space to contribute 1% of their revenue toward similar causes.

Users can join the initiative anonymously and without having to disclose their contributions. If everyone in crypto donated 1% of their holdings to charities, they could collectively raise $ 20 billion.

As well as raising money for “amazing causes in critical need of support,” the organization’s co-founder also says that this could erase crypto tax burdens for donors — and “put to bed this idea that crypto is bad.”

Winners and Losers

At the end of the week, Bitcoin is at $ 57,380.31, Ether at $ 2,880.41 and XRP at $ 1.56. The total market cap is at $ 2,212,553,216,270.

Among the biggest 100 cryptocurrencies, the top three altcoin gainers of the week are Fantom, Polygon and OKB. The only altcoin loser is Celo.

County in New Jersey makes 250% profit from crypto seized in 2018

Prosecutors in the U.S. have sold off crypto they confiscated in 2018.

Monmouth County Prosecutor Christopher Gramiccioni said that the county is the first state-level agency to complete the forfeiture and liquidation of cryptocurrency assets.

“This will serve as an effective template for the state law enforcement agencies in the cryptocurrency market — a place where we can expect proceeds from crimes to continue to be concealed,” he added.

Binance could face heavy fines over stock tokens, warns German regulator

Binance’s attempts to bridge traditional markets with the cryptocurrency space through fractionalized stock tokens have drawn the attention of Germany’s financial regulator.

Binance launched fractionalized stock tokens for Apple, MicroStrategy and Microsoft on Monday, adding to tokens for Coinbase and Tesla.

The exchange told Cointelegraph: “Binance takes its compliance obligations very seriously and is committed to following local regulator requirements wherever we operate. We will work with regulators to address any questions they may have.”

Leigh-Anne Pinnock PREGNANT: Little Mix star shares baby news with jaw-dropping pictures

Leigh-Anne Pinnock, who is a member of the band Little Mix, has revealed she is expecting her first child with her fiancé Andre Gray. The singer broke the news on Instagram as she showed off her bump for the first time in a stunning photoshoot.
In view of her 6.5 million followers, the 29-year-old penned: “We’ve dreamed about this moment for so long and we can’t believe the dream is finally coming true… we can’t wait to meet you.”

Band member Jade Thirlwall was one of the first to comment as she replied: “Love you so much. Look at this family.”

While Perrie Edwards also added: “I can’t stop staring at these pictures. You’re a vision. Ily both so much! CONGRATULATIONS my beautiful sister!”(sic)

Leigh-Anne got engaged to football player Andre last May, after he proposed while the couple celebrated their anniversary in lockdown.

The British singer shared a series of photos as she unveiled her growing baby bump while sporting a green gown.

In another snap, Leigh-Anne could be seen cradling her stomach while her other half held her in a sweet embrace.

Celebrity pals and fans alike flooded the comment section, as they offered their well wishes to the Little Mix star.

Cher Lloyd penned: “Congratulations! So happy for you both!! Sending so much love.”

It comes after Little Mix was forced to postpone their upcoming Confetti World Tour, their first without Jesy Nelson, until 2022 due to the Covid pandemic.

Andre proposed to Leigh-Anne in May at their home during lockdown.

Explaining the moment Andre got on one knee, Leigh-Anne said he “set up candles like something out of a movie”.

Speaking about the proposal, Leigh-Anne spoke candidly on the Bumble’s My Love Is… podcast in November.

She explained that the couple were watching a film before he popped the question.

“Then it cut out and there was pictures of us, it was playing our song, then the screen changed to ‘Will you marry me?’ and he was on one knee,” Leigh-Anne explained.

Andre said he had been planning to pop the question to Leigh-Anne for quite some time, but struggled after the UK’s first lockdown was put into place in March.

Leigh-Anne and Andre first announced their engagement as they celebrated their fourth anniversary.

Line of Duty twist with jaw-dropping clue spotted by couch detectives

An eagle-eyed fan of BBC crime drama Line Of Duty thinks they have discovered another rotten apple in Jo Davidson’s team who has yet to be detected – and cannot believe no one else has picked up on the same thing.

The observant viewer of the popular BBC One show spotted what they believe to be a vital clue about the past of troubled DCI Jo, who had already been revealed to have links to the OCG, with deceased gang leader Tommy Hunter outed as her blood relative, thanks to the work of AC-12.

The head of Operation Lighthouse has also had to work with undercover gang member Ryan Pilkington on her team, who was last seen pointing a gun at Kate Fleming.

In the latest twist to season six it was revealed that murdered journalist Gail Vella was looking into the suspicious death of Lawrence Christopher – a young black man killed in police custody in 2003 after being attacked by a gang of white youths, the Mirror reports.

As AC-12 member Chloe Bishop took Steve Arnott and Ted Hastings through her findings, she revealed a brief look at the gang members involved explaining explained how they’d been let off the crime and given anonymity to protect them.

As mug shots of each member flashed up on screen one viewer at home claimed to instantly recognise one of them.

“Seriously has no one else genuinely spotted this? Was the first thing I noticed #LineOfDuty#chrislomax#lawrencechristopher,” they tweeted – sharing a snap of the gang as teenagers alongside Detective Sergeant Chris Lomax.

After putting out the theory that Jo Davidson’s right hand man at Hillside Lane Station was a member of the gang responsible for killing Christopher many other fans of the show piled in with their guesses and theories.

“Yep I spotted that too. Although there are a lot of red herrings. So it’s possible that he isn’t a bad guy,” said one.

“Very true. Though it directly connects him to Tommy Hunter’s son. And it gives him a motive for Gail Vella’s murder as he wants to keep his past a secret,” speculated another.

“OMG. You could be right. We need a face front pic to be sure,” said a third.

And it didn’t stop there for keen armchair detectives who have been doing their best to unravel all Jed Mercurio’s plot points before the dramatic final.

Fans have also been looking at clues pointing to the identity of “H” – the fourth corrupt man or woman at the heart of police corruption.

The return of Patricia Carmichael at the end of Sunday night’s show sparked another theory to do with the much-feared Detective Chief Superintendent’s surname and a possible link to H.

One Twitter user wrote: “I think Carmichael is H. Jimmy Lakewell told Steve to look more into the race claim. Take away Raceclaim from Carmichael and what do you have left … – I’ve cracked it #lineofduty”

Line Of Duty returns on Sunday at 9pm on BBC One.
