LocalBitcoins Denies Service to Iranian Users

LocalBitcoins

The popular peer-to-peer bitcoin trading network LocalBitcoins has shut down all trading operations for Iranian users.

LocalBitcoins’ website offers a variety of pages for users of different nations and, as of May 24, 2019, the Iranian page displays a message that “LocalBitcoins is currently not available in your selected region,” in English only. In an official correspondence regarding the update, a representative of LocalBitcoins confirmed that Iranians can no longer access the service.

“If you have an account already, you will be able to withdraw your bitcoins, but you will not be able to use the platform for trading,” the representative said of Iranian users.

LocalBitcoins is not the first peer-to-peer trading network to block Iran in this fashion. Major companies such as Coinbase and Binance have also begun rejecting Iranian customers on the basis of their nationality within the past year. Ziya Sadr, an Iranian bitcoiner, told Bitcoin Magazine that the move “shouldn't come as a surprise.”

The reason for these companies’ blocks seems clear: the new wave of sanctions that the United States is levying against Iran and companies that conduct business within the country. Since the Trump administration unilaterally violated an agreement with the Iranian government regarding the nonproliferation of nuclear weapons in 2018, relations between the two countries have been deteriorating.

Iranian citizens have shown interest in the borderless nature of Bitcoin for just this reason, among the other natural advantages of the technology. In April, the country’s first Bitcoin ATM made a splash at a Tehran technology exhibition. Camera crews interviewed several passersby and the topic of using Bitcoin to circumvent unjust sanctions came up repeatedly.

Bitcoin is fundamentally a platform designed to connect users worldwide, regardless of the restrictions imposed on free exchange by various nations. After receiving the Lightning Torch from Bitcoin Magazine via Welsh bitcoiner Bitgeiniog in March, Sadr called Bitcoin “a safe haven.”

“Laws and regulations may force a business to take decisions against their will,” Sadr told Bitcoin Magazine regarding the LocalBitcoins ban. “This will force a business like LocalBitcoins to lose users and revenue, but the market operates and there will always be different business that will serve us.”

Indeed, the space as a whole is not abandoning the country of some 80 million people. Also on May 24, Hodl Hodl announced that it was offering full support for operations in the country. More than just keeping the site open, Hodl Hodl also announced that it would provide Farsi language support (unlike LocalBitcoins’ English-only error message), a discounted exchange fee and a Telegram group specific for Iranian users to establish contact with each other. Bisq, another decentralized bitcoin exchange, has also added Farsi support and offers Iranian bitcoiners a viable alternative.

Ironically, even in the wake of LocalBitcoins’ exit from the country, Iranians “actually now have more and better options for p2p exchanges than before,” Sadr said.

Bitcoin Price Analysis: Macro Resistance Could Push Price Down to $6,000s

Price Analysis Video.jpg

Summary:

  1. The bitcoin market is seeing some pullback as the monthly and weekly resistance level has proven to be a tough level to crack. On the daily level we can see a couple of attempts to break the level, but ultimately this was matched with strong selling pressure.
  2. On bitcoin’s four-hour chart we can see that support that once held the market up is now turning into support with a failure to reclaim the level.
  3. If we fail to reclaim the $7,800s, we can expect to see a retest of the $7,300s and if that level doesn’t hold, we will very likely see a test of the low $6,000s.

7,000 BTC Lost in Hangzhou Scam

Lost, Stolen Coins

This article was originally published by 8btc and written by Vincent He.

Nearly 100 victims from various parts of China have reported to the Hangzhou police bureau, claiming that they were deceived by two young men, named Zhou Yi and Li Xiang, who allegedly stole nearly 7,000 bitcoin through exchanging or borrowing.

According to the victims, Zhou and Xiang had claimed on the internet that they could exchange bitcoin as futures and provide interest. The victims trusted them, as some preliminary orders in small amounts were delivered on time. As the pair could offer bitcoin at prices lower than the market rate and delivery seemed stable, they soon collected several thousand orders.

“I began OTC [over-the-counter] Bitcoin trading since 2017, unexpectedly I was cheated by more than 2 million yuan this year,” Mr. Wang, one of the alleged victims, said. “As a senior bitcoin speculator, I always buy low and sell high, I trust my peers.”

But Mr. Wang was not alone, as there appear to be more than 100 victims in this case. It has been reported that more than 7,000 BTC, equating 300 million yuan (≅$43.4 million), was involved.

This apparent bitcoin trade scam was conducted in two WeChat groups. If someone wanted to buy bitcoin, they could negotiate privately in the groups and transfer the money to a designated bank account after confirmation. One or two days later, Zhou Yi would send bitcoin to the buyer’s designated wallet.

”I had been trading with them for more than a year,” Mr. Zhang, another one of the victims, said. “I first traded with them last summer and then bought bitcoins from them three times a week until they lost touch in April. The amount of each transaction [was] about two or three million yuan. In nearly a year, the volume of transactions has reached billions of yuan. Their price [was] very low. I earned nearly one million yuan before.”

Aside from trading bitcoin as futures, the pair was also borrowing bitcoin and promising interest. They gave 100 to 120 yuan worth of BTC to victims as interest, so 90 percent of the victims would deposit bitcoin into their account. When victims pushed them for the release of these bitcoin, they would always transfer some money as compensation before disappearing.

Now Zhou and Xiang have been arrested for “illegal public deposit absorption” and the case is pending further investigation. The biggest concern for victims is how to determine the nature of the case. Some of the victims are not satisfied with the initial charges.

“We just want to give the police more information to prove that they knew at the beginning of March that they couldn’t issue coins, and that the subsequent transactions were not only illegal public deposit absorptions, but also a fraud,” a victim said.

So, where is the legal boundary for OTC Bitcoin trading?

“It is legal to own bitcoins in China,” said Sa Xiao, a council member at the Bank of China Law Research Association, as cited by The Beijing News. Additionally, Xiao considers the occasional exchange of bitcoin between individuals as legal.

The Man Behind Bitcoin Pizza Day Is More Than a Meme: He’s a Mining Pioneer

The Man Behind Bitcoin Pizza Day Is More Than A Meme: He’s a Mining Pioneer

Bitcoin was barely a year old and trading for less than a penny. Excitement for the world’s first cryptocurrency was still largely bottled up in the infant hobbyist forum Bitcointalk, itself barely half a year old. Here, OGs effervescent with enthusiasm compared notes on economic philosophy, technical knowledge and the new cryptographic beast that Satoshi Nakamoto created. Satoshi himself was still active on the forum, too, as the earliest adopters shared their visions for the future of money.

Though, if that future was going to be realized, something was still missing: No one had ever spent bitcoin on anything. Darknet markets wouldn’t exist for a few years and the only transactions users facilitated (besides peer-to-peer ones on the network) were done in cash.

Perhaps this is why Laszlo Hanyecz decided it was time to make history. On May 18, 2010, the Bitcoin Core contributor asked fellow enthusiasts on Bitcointalk if someone would “make [two large] pizzas yourself and bring it to my house or order it for me from a delivery place.” He offered 10,000 BTC for the service and, though it took four days, he got his wish.

One prescient user cautioned that 10,000 bitcoin was “quite a bit” — around $41 at the time. And, of course, “quite a bit” sounds like an absurd understatement today; seven years later, at bitcoin’s all-time high, that sum would be worth $200,000,000.

To Hanyecz, who told Bitcoin Magazine that he spent something near 100,000 BTC on pizza that year, the purchase was just another drop in the bucket.

“We would just give people bitcoin on the forum,” he said — sometimes 100, sometimes 1,000 BTC at a time.

“I wanted to do the pizza thing because to me it was free pizza,” Hanyecz explained. “I mean, I coded this thing and mined bitcoin and I felt like I was winning the internet that day. I got pizza for contributing to an open-source project. Usually hobbies are a time sink and money sink, and in this case, my hobby bought me dinner.”

Not Just “That Pizza Guy”

The May 22, 2010, transaction would be etched in stone, as much for the symbolic significance of the purchase as for the gaffe that Hanyecz spent the future-equivalent of Kanye West’s net worth on two large Papa John’s pizzas.

But there’s more to Hanyecz’s story than this transaction, even though the legendary pizza purchase has overshadowed his other achievements in the Bitcoin space. The developer is doing just fine despite the purchase, actually, mainly because of his other (and vastly more important) contribution to Bitcoin’s development: GPU mining.

Before revolutionizing mining, the software engineer, who was introduced to Bitcoin in late 2009, was a member of its first class of contributors. As he humbly put it, Hanyecz “had been working on [bitcoin], fixing bugs and things like that.” His “minor” contributions include building and deploying the first macOS Bitcoin Core release.

They also include revamping the landscape of mining. Hanyecz first introduced the community to GPU mining in May 2010, which he saw as simply contributing to something that was very much still an experiment and not yet a movement.

“On [Bitcointalk] at the time, there weren’t really any users,” he recalled. “There were 50 people, maybe 100. It was a lot different then. It was like, ‘Hey, do you want to contribute to an open source project?’ It wasn’t ‘Hey, do you want money to change the world?’”

At that time, the only bitcoin mining was done on the backs of CPUs — the processors that make personal computers tick. No one had contrived of a more efficient way to produce hashes. As he set out to improve this efficiency, Hanyecz admitted that he didn’t fully comprehend “how fast the [mining] difficulty adjusted” (because no one had created a miner powerful enough to truly test this mechanism). Still, he stewed over a way to produce more hashes more quickly in the hope of extracting more value from the network.

This is what led him to devise a mining code using GPUs. Graphics cards, as they are commonly called, animate our computer screens with color and, well, graphics. Hanyecz deduced that these pieces of hardware could do more computation at once than a CPU and so “fit well with trying to brute force hashes” to mine blocks.

“GPUs, what they’re good at, is they can do a lot of things in parallel, but they have to be very simple things and it has to be the same thing,” he explained. “So, you can add 10 to a thousand different numbers at the same time. Whereas a general, regular CPU is much more flexible. It can do a lot of things, but it has to do these one at a time. The mining problem lent itself perfectly to GPUs.”

His discovery was lucrative. It gave him a tenfold increase in hashpower — and this using a 2010 Macbook!

But his discovery didn’t go over so well with crypto’s progenitor. Satoshi was always a bit “at arm’s length” in those days, Hanyecz said, but after he shared the GPU mining code with the creator, Satoshi made his opinion known that he thought it was too advanced for Bitcoin’s stage of development.

“A big attraction to new users is that anyone with a computer can generate some free coins,” Satoshi wrote in an email to Hanyecz. “GPUs would prematurely limit the incentive to only those with high-end GPU hardware. It's inevitable that GPU compute clusters will eventually hog all the generated coins, but I don't want to hasten that day.”

“That’s when I was like, ‘Man, I feel like I crapped up your project. Sorry, dude,’” Hanyecz told Bitcoin Magazine with a laugh. “He was concerned that some people might be discouraged because they can’t mine a block with a CPU. So, I stopped advertising it after that.”

Even though he tried to pull the plug, Hanyecz’s invention began to propagate, opening up a Pandora’s box of hashrate on the network. Soon after he debuted the code on Bitcointalk, other users repurposed it to create standalone versions for Windows, Mac and Linux. Hanyecz released the seminal code as a patch into Bitcoin Core’s source code “because that was the easiest way to hack it in,” he said. These new versions, though, were separated from Bitcoin Core entirely and existed as their own clients.

The cat was out of the bag, and Hanyecz no longer had the competitive edge he was looking for when he coded the new mining method.

“I thought that having more processing power would secure the network. But I didn’t understand that I should have kept it to myself. It would have made more sense to be greedy,” he joked.

Life After Pizza

Despite misconceptions that Hanyecz eschewed Bitcoin following the pizza transaction, he’s still around. He just isn’t active in Bitcoin’s development anymore.

“I’m just another bitcoiner,” says the man who changed the mining landscape indelibly.

Bewilderingly, nearly 10 years later, that same man is hardly recognized for this contribution. Instead, most people know Laszlo Hanyecz for the historic pizza transaction, an industry meme that dwarfs the more groundbreaking work he delivered in Bitcoin’s stumbling infancy. This might be a consequence of his invention coming at a time when Bitcoin’s following was no more than a few hundred enthusiasts. Or perhaps it’s that the shock value of his purchase, in the age of clickbait, outweighs the technical achievements on his cypherpunk résumé.

Hanyecz, when asked if he ever tires of people asking him about the purchase, says that he sees it differently.

“I think it’s funny when people look at it that way,” he explained. “I think it’s one of those things where it’s a good catchy thing to get people’s attention. But I think anyone who gets genuinely interested [in Bitcoin] understands. It’s the same thing as, oh, let me go back in the past and buy Apple stock.

“At the time it was Monopoly money. Nobody cared — people would just give you some, so I didn’t figure I needed to be greedy with it.”

The father of GPU mining seems to approach the infamous pizza purchase, and questions surrounding it, the same way he approaches Bitcoin: with good-humored aplomb, rather than bitter regret. In fact, he doesn’t see it as a loss at all; he sees it as a win.

“A trade happens because both parties think they’re getting a good deal,” he said. “I felt like I was beating the internet, getting free food. I was like, ‘Man, I got these GPUs linked together, now I’m going to mine twice as fast. I’m just going to be eating free food; I’ll never have to buy food again.’”

Hanyecz has maintained this upbeat outlook even as bitcoin has catapulted past all-time high after all-time high throughout the years. This is probably because his treatment of Bitcoin hasn’t changed since he first joined the open-source community in 2010. To him, it’s still a hobby, not a career.

“Honestly, I just kinda stay out of it because there’s so much buzz,” he said. “I don’t want that kind of attention, and I certainly don’t want people thinking I’m Satoshi … I just figure it’s better to keep it as a hobby. I have a regular job. I don’t do Bitcoin full time. I don’t want it to be a professional thing that I’m on the hook for. I’m glad that I was involved to the extent that I was.”

We’re glad he was, as well. After all, he gave us Bitcoin Core for MacOS and GPU mining — oh, and all the pizza memes, too. They may not be as significant or impressive as Hanyecz’s other contributions, but they do make every May 22 for this community memorable (and delicious).

Tether Partly Backed by Bitcoin, Court Transcription Reveals

Tether And Bitcoin

Tether, a stablecoin tied to the dollar that is meant to mediate the volatility of other cryptocurrencies, is partly backed by bitcoin.

As detailed in court documents obtained by The Block, Tether admitted to using some of the cash reserves meant to back its stablecoin to purchase bitcoin, among other assets.

This revelation is the latest in legal proceedings between the New York Attorney General (NYAG) and Bitfinex, a leading cryptocurrency exchange which shares management with Tether. Bitfinex and the NYAG have gone back and forth in a battle of legal letters after the NYAG petitioned the New York Supreme Court to stop the exchange from drawing on a $900 million line of credit it established with Tether to cover $850 million in losses it incurred when its fiduciary relationship with payment processor Crypto Capital went south.

The war of words has offered a rare glimpse into Tether/Bitfinex’s shared business practices, including the revelation that Tether’s reserves are only 74 percent backed following the $850 million loss. Additionally, Bitfinex used Crypto Capital to commingle business and customer funds. Now, Bitfinex’s legal counsel is saying that some of these funds were used to buy bitcoin.

“Tether actually did invest in instruments beyond cash and cash equivalents, including bitcoin,” David Miller, Bitfinex’s attorney, testified, adding that it is a “small amount.”

Presiding Judge Joel M. Cohen responded by saying that, while it “may be a little beyond the issue,” that “Tether sounded to me like sort of the calm in the storm of cryptocurrency trading. And so if Tether is backed by bitcoin, how is that consistent? If some of your assets are in a volatile currency that Tether is supposed to somehow modulate,” then that supports the NYAG’s argument.

The rest of the document outlines an argument for why the NYAG’s injunction has grounds under the Martin Act, an anti-fraud law that gives the NYAG legal leeway to bring action against allegedly fraudulent securities issuers. The NYAG argues that, under the Martin Act, it has jurisdiction to pursue Bitfinex/Tether because neither offered sufficient disclosure to stakeholders (namely, Bitfinex users and tether holders).

But the judge opened up his remarks questioning this legal basis, stating that “it [isn’t] 100 percent clear what the violation [is].”

“The petitioner [NYAG] ... very clearly and correctly said that the Attorney General’s Office is not a regulator, so there is no general mandate in the Martin Act to maintain the financial stability of any given company unless there is a statutory violation to pursue,” Judge Cohen said. “So the petitioner ... has to show why in this particular case instability or failure to have enough coverage in terms of dollars constituted by itself a violation.”

Miller criticized the NYAG as having a “lack of jurisdiction” in the matter, arguing that the attorney general is only going after Bitfinex/Tether because it dislikes bitcoin as an asset. He also argues that Tether made proper disclosures regarding its fractional reserves in a February website update.

The May 16 hearing followed a temporary injunction granted by judge Cohen that would freeze Bitfinex’s line of credit for 90 days, a timeframe Bitfinex/Tether sought to reduce to 45 days.

In the background of the courtroom battle, Bitfinex launched a token sale to the tune of $1 billion to aid fund recovery efforts. The token, LEO, sold out and is currently trading; the $1 billion raised will go to cover some of the $850 million lost to Crypto Capital, with Bitfinex planning to buy back and burn outstanding supply until all tokens are out of circulation.
