Binance Coin Wallets: Top 10 Safest Places to Store BNB




The Binance Coin has come a long way since the ICO. Mimicking the success of the Exchange itself, the BNB ecosystem has been growing rapidly.

Not only is Binance Coin used extensively on Binance as a liquidity token, but the BNB blockchain is becoming a platform of choice for developers to build on. The mainnet switch has opened the floodgates of adoption.

Of course, with all this interest in BNB, you will need a safe place to store it.

In this piece, I am going to give you the top 10 Best Binance Coin wallets as well as give you some top tips to safely store BNB.

Top 10 Binance Coin Wallets

Before diving into the BNB wallets it is worth mentioning that BNB used to be an ERC-20 standard token. This means that you could store it in any Ethereum compatible wallet.

However, with the move to a native Binance Coin blockchain, BNB became BEP2 standard. Wallet support for BEP2 is not as extensive as that of Ethereum but it is still pretty impressive. Moreover, this also means that if you have any coin that is BEP2, it can be supported on the below wallets.

Finally, my selection of the “best” wallets is based on a number of factors including usability, developer support and of course safety. There may be wallets that I don’t mention so if you are considering using them – make sure that they have buy in from the community.

With that being said, let’s jump in with the wallets (in order of preference).

Ledger Nano S (Hardware Wallet)

This is the most popular hardware cryptocurrency wallet on the market and it’s easy to see why. The Ledger Nano S is the best when it comes to security, and it’s also easy to use. Not only can you store your BNB here, but the multi-currency wallet has support for hundreds of different altcoins, with more being added all the time.

One other thing users like about the Ledger Nano S is the ease of use. You can just plug it into the USB port of your computer and get started. And it was designed to be powered by the computer when plugged in, so there’s no need to ever change a battery.

The safety of your funds is guaranteed by storing all private keys offline where they are never accessible to hackers. The Ledger Nano S gives you peace of mind that your coins will remain safe.

Additional safety is built-in by requiring all transactions to be confirmed by pressing two physical buttons on the device, making it impossible for someone to access your wallet remotely and perform any transactions.

Top Tip 💯: If you are going to be buying a hardware device, be sure to buy it from the official site. Buying hardware devices from third parties is risky as they may have tampered with the device

In the event the Ledger Nano S becomes lost the PIN capabilities will allow you to recover any BNB that was stored on the device. Simply ensure that you record your 24-word mnemonic phrase and keep it safe in the event you need to recover your wallet at any time.

The only downside of the Ledger Nano S is that it isn’t free, but if you’re storing hundreds or potentially thousands of dollars worth of BNB and other cryptocurrencies it is well worth the $41 price tag.

Of course, there is also a slightly more expensive model called the Ledger Nano X which comes in at $119. This has bluetooth support, added coins and storage space for many more cryptocurrency apps – so you don’t have to delete apps like on the Nano S.

Trezor Model T

The second most popular hardware wallet currently is the Trezor device. This is developed by a company called Satoshi labs that is based out in Prague in the Czech republic. The model T is the slightly more expensive Trezor that comes in at €149.

Unfortunately, the cheaper Trezor Model One does not support the BEP2 based BNB token. Having said that, the Model T has some really nifty features that you don’t get in the standard model. These include a touch colour screen for a more seamless user experience.

Like the Ledger, the Trezor device signs all transactions right there on the device and will never expose it to your PC. This means it is in a “cold storage” environment. In order to interact with your PC, it is done with a USB cable that is then connected to the Trezor bridge.

However, unlike with the Ledger, you cannot manage your BNB with the Trezor wallet software. It works in conjunction with the Trust Wallet (which we cover below). Your private keys will be stored on the device but your coins will be managed with the Trust Wallet.

It is because of this reason that the Trezor is less preferred to the Ledger device. I prefer to manage all of my cryptocurrencies in a single place through the Ledger live application. Nevertheless, if you want a secure hardware wallet with a color screen and support for over 1,000 coins and tokens then the Trezor Model T is worth considering.

The Trust Wallet (Mobile Wallet)

Trust Wallet is the official cryptocurrency wallet of Binance, so you know it works well with BNB coins. Aside from that it also has support for Ethereum and nearly all ERC-20 tokens. The Trust Wallet also supports all other leading cryptocurrency protocols, so it can be used to store Bitcoin (BTC), Ripple (XRP), Tron (TRX), Monero (XLM) and many others.

The wallet is available only in a mobile interface for Android and iOS users. Some users may want to note that the code is open source for Android devices for security reasons, but is closed source for the iOS devices. In either case Trust Wallet never has access to any user information.

Trust Wallet also stores all private keys locally on your own device, keeping you in full control of your funds. And you can always use the mnemonic seed phrase generated to recover your BNB if you were to lose your mobile device. Trust Wallet has the option to backup your wallet and encrypts all information when you go through the setup process.

It is also possible to add other authentication methods to further secure the wallet such as PIN codes or fingerprint scanning. These additional features make Trust Wallet one of the most secure mobile wallets available for storing BNB coins.

The Trust Wallet integrates with the Binance DEX too, allowing you to make instant trades right from within your wallet. This is great for those users who prefer not to store their BNB on a centralised exchange like Binance when trading Altcoins.

Taking a bit of a closer look into the reviews in the app stores, it seems as if the users are pretty damn happy. It has over 10,000 reviews in the play store with an average of 4.6 stars. Over in the iTunes store it has almost 4,000 reviews with an average rating of 4.8.

Most of the written reviews were specific to coin support for coins other than BNB. However, what was encouraging is that the developers were responsive to these queries and took the advice of the users on board.

Binance Chain Wallet (Web Wallet)

The Binance Chain Wallet is the official wallet for Binance and the BNB coin. The wallet is integrated directly with the Binance DEX, and not only allows you to store your BNB but your other coins as well.

When creating a new wallet you’ll receive a keystore file and will also need to set a password. Both steps are very important in accessing your wallet, so be sure to keep both secure. You should also record your mnemonic seed words so you are able to restore your wallet in the event you lose your keystore file or password.

Binance DEX BNB
Creating a Wallet on the Binance Dex

Those who value security will be glad to know the Binance Chain Wallet also integrates with the Ledger hardware wallets, allowing you to securely store your BNB on the Ledger device, but then using the Binance Chain Wallet to interface with your coins.

It’s a good solution that gives you the safety of a hardware wallet, with the ease of use of the Binance Chain Wallet. Moreover, it means that you can exchange the BNB that you have on your Ledger device for another BEP2 asset without even having to move them from the hardware wallet at all.

Warning ⚠️: Using web wallets can be risky thanks to phishing attacks. Make extra certain that you are visiting in your browser. Hackers may try and deceive you with another domain and hence steal your private keys

Note that users with IP addresses originating in any of the following countries are not permitted to access the Binance Chain Wallet as of October 19, 2019:

United States of America, Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Belarus, Congo (DRC), Côte d’Ivoire, Crimea, Cuba, Iraq, Iran, North Korea, Liberia, Macedonia, Myanmar, Serbia, Sudan, Syria, Zimbabwe.

Atomic Wallet (Desktop & Mobile)

The Atomic Wallet promises world-class security for your BNB and other cryptocurrency funds if you follow the wallet guidelines for setting it up and using it. The Atomic Wallet provides non-custodial storage of your BNB, allowing you to manage them in a decentralized manner.

Atomic Wallet has support for BNB and for over 500 other cryptocurrencies, allowing you to store, buy and sell them seamlessly. The wallet is available for Windows, Mac, and Linux desktop operating systems and for Android and iOS mobile operating systems.

Atomic Wallet BNB
The Benefits and User interface of the Atomic Wallet

The Atomic Wallet comes with atomic swap capabilities, and for those coins that aren’t supported by atomic swap yet it also has ShapeShift, Changelly, and ChangeNOW support baked right into the wallet. This means your BNB and any other coins stored in the Atomic Wallet can be quickly and easily exchanged.

The Atomic Wallet also comes with a number of security features to ensure your BNB coins remain safe at all times. Private keys are generated with a mnemonic seed phrase and are encrypted and stored locally on the device running the wallet. This keeps your BNB coins fully in your control at all times. And if you lose the device or it breaks you are able to easily recover your BNB coins using the mnemonic phrase.

Not Open Source 🚫: Unlike the other wallets above, the Atomic Wallet is not open source. This means that the cryptocurrency community has been unable to verify the veracity of the code.

The Atomic Wallet also allows you to use a bank card to buy a number of popular cryptocurrencies, which can then be exchanged for BNB right within the wallet. And for those who like to stake various cryptocurrencies, there is staking support for several, including NEO and Tezos.

Exodus Wallet (Desktop & Mobile)

Another really popular multicurrency wallet that supports the Binance Coin (as well as over 100 other cryptocurrencies) is the Exodus wallet. This is available on both Desktop and mobile versions. It is also one of the original multicurrency wallets having been founded in 2016.

Something that I really like about the Exodus wallet is its seamless user interface. It also syncs with the desktop and mobile versions so you can manage your numerous crypto assets across the different devices. You can also use it with a Trezor device (although not for BNB unfortunately).

Like with Atomic wallet, you also have a ShapeShift integration. This means that you can exchange your Binance Coin for any other of the supported coins on the exchange. It is worth noting, however, that the Exodus developers do apply a small spread to this conversion in order to fund the wallet’s development and support.

Exodus Wallet BNB
Binance Coin Exodus Wallet User Interface

On this point, Exodus offers human support 24 hours a day 7 days a week. If you have any queries about the wallet you can raise a ticket and they will try to get back to you within a day.

Exodus has been developed by JP Richardson and Daniel Castagnoli who have been with the wallet since the beginning. On this point, the wallet is not fully open source although there are numerous components that have been made open source.

Coinomi Wallet (Desktop & Mobile)

Coinomi was considered to be one of the top mobile wallets for years, and recently they’ve added a desktop version of their popular wallet. Both mobile and desktop versions can be used to store BNB and over 1,500 other cryptocurrencies.

The mobile version is available for both Android and iOS devices, and the desktop version has been released for Windows, Mac, and Linux operating systems – so you are pretty well covered.

Coinomi is integrated with Changelly and ShapeShift as well as a number of DEXs that let you quickly and easily exchange BNB for any number of other cryptocurrencies. Plus the Coinomi wallet has a host of other features such as one-click cross-chain payments, enhanced privacy, cold staking, and many others.

Coinomi Wallet BNB
The Coinomi User Interface on Desktop & Mobile

Coinomi is secure, with your private keys never leaving your device, and strong encryption to ensure your coins remain in your control. Also, there’s no KYC bureaucracy to access your funds, no IP association, no identity linking, no transaction tracking. The Coinomi servers anonymize your requests by hiding your IP address from prying eyes.

Something else that those new to cryptocurrency would appreciated about the Atomic wallet is their customer support. They have support agents that are available 24/7/365 to deal with your request. While there is no live chat functionality, you can raise a ticket with them.

One further feature is complete wallet synchronization where you can see all your transactions on both your mobile and desktop versions. Unfortunately, like the Atomic Wallet, Coinomi is not open source – so you will have to consider whether this is enough of a concern for you.

Enjin Wallet (Mobile)

The Enjin wallet is a mobile wallet that promises to be as secure as a hardware wallet. In addition to supporting the storage and transfer of BNB it also has support for Bitcoin, Ethereum, ERC-20 tokens, ERC-721 tokens, and ERC-1155 tokens. This is great for gamers who can now store all their items right within the Enjin Wallet. It is available for both Android and iOS operating systems.

The security of the mobile wallet is built-in through the innovative technologies like two-factor encryption and the Enjin Secure Keyboard, which keeps hackers from using keyloggers or data sniffing on the Enjin Wallet. It’s these security features that make the wallet as safe as a hardware wallet.

Because the Enjin Wallet was designed specifically for mobile usage it has a simple and lightning-fast interface. You’re able to transfer and exchange cryptocurrencies quickly and easily using Changelly, Bancor, and KyberSwap.

Another innovative feature of the wallet is the ability to create an infinite number of wallet, and store an infinite number of coins, and an infinite number of blockchain collectibles.

Enjin Wallet is such a good mobile wallet it was chosen by Samsung as the blockchain wallet installed by default on the Samsung Galaxy.

Trubi Wallet (Desktop)

The Trubi wallet is a new Binance-native self-managed wallet. It is safe, secure, stable, and recommended by Binance. Currently, it is only available as a beta version for Windows, but there is a Mac version in the works. There are also mobile versions for Android and iOS in development.

Trubi allows you to seamlessly toggle between instant swaps and order book trading, whether you’re looking to execute quickly or place limit orders.

Designed from the ground up to be used on the go, Trubi allows you to experience everything that Binance Chain has to offer in the palm of your hand.

Guarda Wallet (Multiple Devices)

Guarda is a multi-functional cryptocurrency wallet running on Web, Desktop, Chrome Extension, and Mobile devices. Store all your coins in one wallet. Receive, send, buy, exchange, stake and do whatever you want with all coins in one secure, non-custodial, multiplatform wallet.

Guarda was one of the very first wallets to provide support for the native BNB coin when the mainnet was released. As a front-runner in the storage of BEP-2 tokens, Guarda has a very good and close relationship with Binance.

Users like the Guarda wallet because it is easy to set-up and has a clean user interface. They also appreciate the lack of registration requirements, which helps maintain privacy and security.


And there you have it, the top 10 best Wallets in order to store your Binance Coin.

If you wanted the most secure way to store your BNB then you can’t go wrong with a hardware wallet. Yes, they come with a cost but this could be insignificant when compared to the loss a hack can have on your portfolio. I am more a fan of the Ledger but the Trezor device is just as safe.

Of course, you can also use the open source Trust wallet (Binance approved) or one of the mulitcurrency third party wallets . I would prefer the trust wallet as it is open source – but does not have the functionality of the likes of the Exodus or Coinomi etc.

Finally, you can always create a wallet on Binance’s DEX and start trading your BNB coins right from your wallet. Although, I would recommend that you only do this for small amounts and trade larger amounts through your hardware wallet.

Whatever wallet you do choose,  make sure that you practice crypto security 101. Always back up your seed words, be careful of the files that you download and last but not least – keep quite about your crypto stash.

No one needs to know what you are hodling 😉

Bitcoin und Ethereum Analyse: NUPL-Werte signalisieren weitere Kurssteigerungen




In diesem Artikel zeigt dir BeInCrypto den NUPL-On-Chain-Indikator. Der NUP-Wert (Net Unrealized Profit/Loss) eignet sich ganz gut, wenn man die Top eines Asset-Kurses bestimmen möchte.

Auch wenn der Bitcoin-NUPL-Wert bereits deutlich zugenommen hat, so ist er immer noch einige Prozentpunkte von den letzten drei Spitzenwerten entfernt. Der Indikator ist in der Vergangenheit auf diese Spitzenwerte angestiegen, kurz nachdem bzw. bevor der Bitcoin Kurs die jeweilige Top des Bull-Cycles erreicht hat.

Der Ethereum-NUPL-Wert ist vergleichsweise zurzeit sogar noch weiter von den damaligen Spitzenwerten entfernt. Kurz davor bzw. danach erreichte auch der Ethereum Kurs seine damaligen Höchststände bzw. Tops.

Wie kann man den NUPL-Wert berechnen?

Der NUPL-Wert wurde geschaffen, um die Profite bzw. Verluste des zirkulierenden Supplys eines Coins zu messen bzw. quantifizieren. Man kann den NUPL-Wert ausrechnen, indem man die realisierten Verluste von den realisierten Gewinnen abzieht.

Die nicht-realisierten Profite entsprechen dem Gesamtwert aller Coins, dessen aktueller Preis höher ist als ihr Einkaufspreis. Analog dazu entsprechen die nicht-realisierten Verluste dem Gesamtwert aller Coins, dessen aktueller Kurs niedriger ist als ihr Einkaufspreis. Ist der Wert negativ, dann gibt es mehr Netto-Verluste als Netto-Gewinne.

Bitcoin NUPL Analyse

Gängigerweise spricht man bei einem Wert von -0,25 von einer „Capitulation“ („Kapitulation“) des Marktes. Bei einem Wert von über 0,75 geht man von einer „Euphorie“ („Euphoria“) des Marktes aus. Wenn der Wert über 0,25 und unterhalb von 0,5 liegt, dann herrscht „Optimismus“ („Optimism“) auf dem Markt. Bei Werten von über 0,5 sind die Markteilnehmer von dem Asset überzeugt bzw. glauben an Dieses („Belief“).

Kurz nachdem der Bitcoin Kurs 2011 das damalige Allzeithoch erreicht hat, lag der Wert des Indikators bei 0,878. Dieser Wert ist der höchste jemals aufgezeichnete Bitcoin-NUPL-Wert. 2013 erreichte der NUPL den nächsten Spitzenwert (0,824). Der darauffolgende Peak lag bei 0,838. Bei dem Ende des Bullruns von 2017 stieg der Wert auf 0,793 an.

Bitcoin NUPL Chart By Glassnode

Abgesehen von den Rekordwerten ist auch der Zeitraum ab dem 21. Oktober 2020 bemerkenswert. Zu diesem Zeitpunkt ist der NUPL-Wert über 0,5 angestiegen („Belief“). Interessanterweise erreichte der NUPL-Wert am 21. Februar 2021 den letzten lokalen Hochpunkt. Der Bitcoin Kurs stieg fast zum selben Zeitpunkt auf das damalige Allzeithoch (57.432 US-Dollar) an.

Zum Zeitpunkt der Veröffentlichung dieses Artikels liegt der NUPL-Wert bei 0,71. Der Bitcoin Preis hat allerdings am 14. April 2021 ebenfalls ein neues bzw. das letzte Allzeithoch erreicht. Sollte der Bitcoin Kurs also tatsächlich bereits jetzt oder in sehr naher Zukunft die Top erreicht haben, dann wäre dies der mit Abstand kleinste Bitcoin-NUPL-Wert, der jemals während einer Top aufgetreten wäre.

Bitcoin NUPL Indikator Glassnode 2
Bitcoin NUPL Chart By Glassnode

Ethereum NUPL Analyse

Der NUPL-Indikator lieferte bis jetzt auch äußert qualitative Signale für die Bestimmung der Etherum-Tops. 2016 lag der Spitzenwert des Indikators bei 0,872, 2017 sogar bei 0,96 und 2018 bei 0,912.

Ethereum NUPL Indikator Glassnode
Ethereum NUPL Chart By Glassnode

Im November 2020 stieg der ETH-NUPL-Wert auf über 0,5 an. Das letzte lokale Maximum lag bei 0,734. Zu diesem Zeitpunkt war der Ethereum Kurs noch bei 1.953 US-Dollar. Der Ethereum Preis ist danach auf ein neues Allzeithoch angestiegen, der ETH-NUPL-Wert aber auf 0,718 gefallen.

Da der NUPL-Wert noch verhältnismäßig weit von seinen letzten Spitzenwerten (ca. 0,90) entfernt ist, sieht es so aus, als ob der Ethereum Kurs noch weiter ansteigen wird.

Ethereum NUPL 2 Glassnode
Ethereum NUPL Chart By Glassnode


Auch wenn der Markt aktuell definitiv überhitzt wirkt, so signalisieren weder der Bitcoin- noch der Ethereum-NUPL-Wert, dass die Kurse der Assets ihre Top bereits erreicht haben. Deshalb werden der Bitcoin Preis und insbesondere der Ethereum Kurs noch weiter ansteigen.

Reddit WallStreetBets startet Diskussion über Bitcoin, Ethereum und Dogecoin




Das Reddit-Forum WallStreetBets (WSB) startet nun auch Diskussionen rund um Bitcoin, Ethereum und Dogecoin. Zuletzt bekamen die Trader von WallStreetBets große Aufmerksamkeit für das Pushen der Erhöhung des Aktienkurses von GameStop.

Seitdem großen Wirbel um die GameStop Aktie ist es um die WallStreetBets Trader eher ruhig geworden. Doch nun könnte es wieder spannend werden, wenn die WallStreetBets Trader große Kryptowährungen in ihre Diskussionen mit aufnehmen.

Moderator „bawse1“ erklärt:

„Nach langen Überlegungen haben wir beschlossen, nur über BTC, ETH und DOGE zu diskutieren. Innerhalb eines täglichen Crypto-Diskussionsthreads, um nicht jeden mit Crypto-Spam zu belasten. Alle Regeln gelten weiterhin außerhalb des Threads, aber bitte macht dies vorerst nur im täglichen Thread, bis wir ausreichend beurteilt haben, ob dies für unser Sub richtig ist.“

Zunächst sollen die Diskussionen tatsächlich auf Bitcoin, Ethereum und Dogecoin beschränkt sein, obwohl natürlich auch andere Kryptowährungen äußerst beliebte Trading-Assets sind. Für den Reddit-Moderator ist die Integration von Bitcoin, Ethereum und Dogecoin ein Versuch die an Krypto interessierten Gruppenmitglieder nicht zu vernachlässigen:

„Um ganz klar zu sein, wir sind kein Crypto-Subreddit. Wir versuchen nur, einen Platz für euch in unserem Subreddit zu finden.“

WallStreetBets und Dogecoin

„Unser Hauptanliegen ist, dass die Kryptodiskussion den Kern dessen überholt, worum es bei r/wallstreetbets geht, nämlich um den Aktienmarkt.“

Allerdings führt der Moderator auch an, dass WallStreetBets sich dem Thema Krypto nicht weiter verschließen kann:

„Ich sehe keinen Grund mehr, das Unvermeidliche zu verzögern, da Krypto hierbleiben wird.“

Die Diskussionen über Dogecoin sind im Reddit Forum WallStreetBets allerdings nicht neu, obwohl es im Grunde ausschließlich um den Aktienmarkt gehen soll. Denn im Zuge des GameStop Aktien-Pumps hatten sich auch einige Trader am Dogecoin versucht.

SatoshiSwap Token auf Reddit

Die Subreddit-Gruppe SatoshiStreetBets, die sich selbst als „Krypto-Version von WallStreetBets“ bezeichnet, hält außerdem eine weitere kryptografische Neuheit für die Redditer bereit. Eigene Token namens SAS.

„Ich bin stolz darauf, heute die erste Entwicklung von SatoshiSwap bekannt zu geben, einer Kryptowährung und DAO, die von den beliebten UniSwap- und SushiSwap-Projekten inspiriert und für die Mitglieder von SatoshiStreetBets entwickelt wurde. SatoshiStreetBets startet dieses Token aus drei Gründen.“

Die SAS Token fungieren als Utility-Governance-Token für die Gruppe. Die Mitglieder können die SAS Token für Reddit-Posts an die Mitglieder senden.

„SatoshiSwap wird von u/little-eagle gegründet, der auch der Gründer von SatoshiStreetBets und Head Mod von r/SatoshiStreetBets,, ist und betreibt.“

Allerdings haben die Redditer auch Zweifel an den SatoshiSwap Token, wie dieses Mitglied im Detail ausführt:

7 Things You Should Know Before Buying Crypto in Australia




Cryptocurrency investments have increased dramatically over the last couple of years in Australia. 

Values have shot up by more than 1,000% for popular cryptos like Bitcoin, Ethereum, Ripple,

Litecoin and Cardano. Any Australian who purchased cryptos a few years ago is feeling happy right now.

Are you interested in buying crypto too? If you are, there are some things you need to know first. Even though crypto investments can be profitable, they also can be extremely risky. 

You must educate yourself on the crypto marketplace before purchasing any cryptos with your hard-earned money.

Below are the top seven things you should know before buying crypto in Australia.

1) Pick a Good Exchange

Cryptos are bought and sold on a crypto currency exchange. Some of the most prominent Australian crypto exchanges include Binance, Coinbase, Kraken, Swyftx, and Coinspot. 

Each crypto exchange has its pros and cons. For instance, Binance offers the widest selection of altcoins. 

These are cryptos other than Bitcoin, such as Litecoin and Ethereum. While Bitcoin might get the most publicity, at least 40% of the crypto market is devoted to other cryptos. Their prices are a lot cheaper than Bitcoin too.

Swyftx offers low crypto trading fees and high-quality features. Coinbase allows you to pay with a debit card rather than a bank account. Therefore, the choice you make depends on your particular trading preferences.

2) Avoid Scammers

Social media platforms are consumed with so-called crypto gurus and experts. They will try to sell you training videos or provide crypto investment strategies for making a lot of money with


Their claims might state that Bitcoin will be worth $1 million in 10 years, so you must invest in it now.

The truth is that nobody knows where Bitcoin will be in 10 years. It is a speculative asset with no tangible value. The vast volatility of Bitcoin and altcoins are based on speculation alone. Remember that.

3) Investment Small Amounts

The crypto market is highly volatile. Bitcoin could go from a value of $60,000 per coin to $45,000 in just one day. 

If you invest large sums of money, it is possible to lose 30% to 40% in the blink of an eye. That is why you should invest small amounts of money that you can afford to lose.

The good news is that you do not have to pay the total value of one coin. The crypto market allows you to purchase a fraction of a coin at a lower cost.

For example, if Bitcoin is valued at $50,000 per coin, you could spend only $100 and purchase 0.002 worth of Bitcoin rather than one complete coin.

4) Join an Online Crypto Community

You can get a free crypto education by joining an online community composed of other crypto investors. 

It gives crypto enthusiasts a chance to share news and information about the crypto market. Reddit and Facebook Groups have some good crypto communities.

Just beware of scammers and self-promoters. The active community discussions can give you a basic sense of what is going on in the market. However, do not rely on these communities to provide you with investment advice.

5) Create Your Own Strategies

Create your own crypto trading strategies. It is challenging to make accurate predictions, but most strategists will rely on global economic news to form their strategies. 

If inflation is high on popular national currencies, then more people will want to invest in cryptos.

Do not invest in crypto until you know how much you want to spend and how much you want to earn. 

Stick to your strategy, no matter what, to avoid making investment mistakes.

6) Look for Exchanges Accepting Australian Currency

You might be surprised to learn that many popular crypto exchanges do not accept AUD currency. 

Sometimes you will have the option to convert your currency into an accepted currency before purchasing crypto. 

But you will have to pay additional fees to do it. It is better to find a crypto exchange that accepts AUD. A few of these exchanges include Biance, Liquid and Huobi Global.

7) Limited Regulations

Crypto markets are still somewhat new to Australia. They do not have as much financial regulatory oversight compared to traditional securities markets. That makes the crypto market even riskier for investors.

On the upside, some crypto exchanges offer insurance coverage to their members. This

insurance covers crypto theft and loss due to hackers and technical malfunctions. Look for these insurance plans as you research various crypto exchanges.

Bitfinex-Hacker versenden BTC im Wert von 750 Millionen USD




Die Hacker, die 2016 knapp 120.000 Bitcoins gestohlen haben, haben am 14. April 2021 rund 10% davon bewegt. Diese 10% sind heute umgerechnet über 750 Millionen US-Dollar wert. Marktanalysten glauben, dass die Hacker nun die Bitcoins in der Nähe der nächsten Top loswerden möchten. Dazu könnten sie den Markt kurzfristig manipulieren und gleichzeitig eine Short Position eröffnen.

Whale Alert twitterte am 14. April 2021, dass zahlreiche Bitcoins die mit dem Bitfinex Hack von 2016 in Verbindung stehen, bewegt wurden. Der Gesamtwert der bewegten Bitcoins liegt laut dem Krypto-Transaktions-Tracker bei 750 Millionen US-Dollar.

„WTF! $7.5 Milliarden in Bitcoin, die Hacker bei dem Bitfinex Hack 2016 gestohlen haben, sind zum ersten Mal seit 5 Jahren bewegt worden.“

Anmerkung: Mr.Whale hat sich evtl. um eine Nachkommastelle verrechnet bzw. die Zahl falsch wiedergegeben.

Diese Transaktionen waren die ersten Transaktionen der Hacker in diesem Jahr. Insgesamt bewegten die Hacker bei über 30 Transaktionen rund 11.799 BTC.

Hacker bewegen BTC kurz nach neuem Allzeithoch

Die Hacker tätigten die Transaktionen dem Zeitpunkt, als der Bitcoin Kurs ein neues Allzeithoch erreicht hatte. Möglicherweise wollen die Hacker nun langsam ihre Bitcoin in andere Vermögenswerte oder Fiat umtauschen.

Interessanterweise ist am selben Tag Coinbase an die Börse gegangen. Coinbase erhielt wegen des Listings auf dem Nasdaq große mediale Aufmerksamkeit. Die News trugen wohl zu dem jüngsten Kursanstieg bei. Wenn viele Bitcoins auf einmal verkauft werden, dann könnte das theoretisch einen temporären Kursabstieg verursachen.

Viele Analysten glauben allerdings nicht, dass die Transaktionen einen unmittelbaren Einfluss auf den Bitcoin Kurs haben werden. Es wurden insgesamt nur 10% aller Bitcoins, die bei dem Hack gestohlen wurden, bewegt. Viele Börsen haben außerdem Mechanismen implementiert, um die Auszahlung von gestohlenen BTC zu verhindern bzw. zu erschweren. Allerdings könnten die Hacker die Bitcoin auch auf andere Art und Weise loswerden.

„Nein, die Bitfinex Hacker werden ihre gestohlenen Bitcoins nicht verkaufen (zumindest keine große Summe davon).

Aber der/die Hacker bzw. die Hackerin könnte die Bitcoins an eine oder mehrere Exchange(s) senden, den Markt manipulieren und sie auf einer anderen oder auf mehreren Exchange(s) shorten.“

Dieses Szenario wäre nicht so leicht umzusetzen, aber durchaus möglich.

Bitfinex Hacker stahlen fast 120.000 BTC

Der Bitfiniex Hack von 2016 war einer der größten Hacks der Bitcoin-Geschichte. Die Hacker stahlen insgesamt 119.756 BTC, die heute rund 7,5 Milliarden US-Dollar wert sind. Der Markt brach zu dem Zeitpunkt des Hacks um 20% ein.

„Was für ein Moment. Whalealert veröffentlicht eine Nachricht nach der anderen über Bitcoins, die Hacker bei dem Bitfinex-Hack von 2016 gestohlenen haben.“

Der Fall wurde teilweise aufgedeckt. Zwei israelische Brüder sollen für den Hack mitverantwortlich sein. Seit dem Hack wurden bis 2020 rund 1-2% der gestohlenen Bitcoin ab und zu bewegt. Im November bewegten die Hacker zuletzt Bitcoin im Wert von 97 Millionen US-Dollar. Damals erreichte der Bitcoin Kurs ebenfalls ein neues Allzeithoch.

Bitfinex entschädigte die betroffenen Nutzer mit Kryptowährungen. Allerdings erlitt das Image der Exchange einen großen Schaden. Die Krypto-Börse war auch in einige andere Kontroversen verwickelt.
