Today, the flagship cryptocurrency rate reached a new maximum for 2019 – the price of Bitcoin exceeded $ 8,900, although before that fluctuations in the range of 10% -20% were observed.
The BTC movement to new highs started after May 17, the cryptocurrency exchange rate sank to $ 6,600, after which it rose to $ 7,300 on the same day. Since then, the value of BTC has increased by 22% – last night the price rose above the level of $ 8,500, after which it grew by more than $ 300.
It is worth noting that the Bitcoin price movement was accompanied by an impressive increase in trading volume over the past 24 hours. We can say that this figure increased by $ 3.1 billion. Meanwhile, the Altcoins also show growth, in particular Ethereum, EOS, Ripple, Litecoin. Their rate has grown by more than 10%.
In addition, the total market capitalization increased to $ 268.1 billion, which is the maximum, if we consider the period from August 3 last year. The market capitalization of large altcoins increased by $ 6 billion. This indicates the continuing financing of the crypto-industry, as well as active investing in cryptocurrency.
The launch date of the new Ethereum 2.0 blockchain algorithm has become known – January 3, 2020
Developer Justin Drake (Justin Drake), according to Trustnodes , called the date of transition of the Ethereum network to the second version of the protocol and the introduction of the consensus mechanism Proof of Stake (PoS). According to him, Ethereum 2.0 will become a reality in seven months – January 3, 2020, exactly 11 years after the extraction of the genesis-block of Bitcoin .
Drake also said that the developers of Ethereum for less than two weeks – until June 30 – should finalize and approve the specifications of the zero phase. Before generating the genesis block, they will have to launch a deposit contract for the accrual of funds to validators – and present it at the Devcon conference in Japan in October.
Thus, according to Drake, over the next three months, developers should collect at least 2 million ETH, and in seven months, bring the product to a “production stage”, that is, a test network that has been working for quite a long time without significant flaws and has passed a security audit, for at least two customers.
Recall that the founder of Messari, Ryan Selkis (Ryan Selkis), expects that the transition of Ethereum to the second version of the protocol will take place no earlier than 2021. In early May, Prestmatic Labs co-founder Preston Van Loon announced the public launch of a test network for Ethereum 2.0 – Sapphire – created on the basis of the Casper protocol with PoS consensus algorithm and support for stacking.

Crypto traders suffered “incalculable” losses due to a bug on the analytical service TradingView. The existence of the problem drew the attention of a Twitter user under the nickname Cryptoteddybear.
Cryto twitter in the nobody Seems to give a the shit or to Understand how bad the problem is with @tradingview 's broken fib tool for people using the Elliott waves.

In particular, he noted that when using analytics tools for standard graphs, including Fibonacci levels, the service incorrectly displays some metrics. Such a failure, respectively, affects the results obtained during technical analysis based on the Elliott wave theory.
In response to the Cryptoteddybear entry, other traders also began to report a problem. And some revealed it a year ago.
I raised same issue last year. It is a scam. @tradingview is absent of ethics
– CandleBoxAI (@candleboxlaw) June 17, 2019
It is noteworthy that the first error messages appeared more than five years ago on the getsatisfaction platform, but then they were ignored in TradingView.
Nevertheless, now the post Cryptoteddybear had an effect – after a while the service representatives responded to the trader, promising to sort out the situation.
Thanks for all your tweets
Get back to you ASAP

However, the fact that the problem was ignored for such a long period of time, could lead to a lot of incorrect calculations and, consequently, the financial losses of many traders, according to observers. It is worth noting that, apparently, the problem has not yet been resolved, despite its recognition by the service.
Recall recently it became known that TradingView will add a cryptocurrency index, taking into account the news agenda and posts in social networks.
BlockchainJournal also reviewed the features of the service in a separate article .
