Website Compiles List of KYC-Free Exchanges, Along With Some Warnings

Published

on

A new website seeking to compile an active list of every cryptocurrency exchange that welcomes traders in some capacity without forcing them to hand over personal information through know-your-customer, or KYC, verification.

Kycnot.me is only concerned with exchanges that support Bitcoin (BTC) or Monero (XMR), asserting that BTC is the largest crypto asset with the most adoption and XMR offers the strongest privacy protections.

Website tracks KYC-free crypto exchanges

The website currently lists 14 KYC-free trading platforms, many of which offer a peer-to-peer marketplace for crypto assets. 

However, the site has listed warnings concerning more than half of the exchanges mentioned — including noting tight restrictions on verification-free use, withdrawal quirks, and requests for certain identity information despite the absence of KYC requirements.

Surprisingly, the list does not include the popular exchanges Binance, KuCoin, or BitMEX.

KYC incompatible with ethos of crypto

According to a manifesto posted by the website’s owner to Github, Kycnot.me details its mission to “preserve the decentralized and self-governed essence of cryptocurrencies” by “mak[ing] it easier for people to find trustworthy ways to buy, exchange, trade and use cryptos without needing to identify themselves.”

The post asserts that cryptocurrencies were created “to untie the dependency between the users […] and the centralized entities that are in control […] of our economy,” adding that many “KYC and AML exchanges have grown to “act exactly like a bank.”

Kycnot.me invites suggestions and recommendations from community members.

Another bearish signal for Bitcoin has been looming around the corner with the digital asset seeing the largest inflows from external wallets to spot exchanges last seen in March 2020, signifying investors are ready to sell-off their holdings.

Bitcoin Sees the Highest Daily Spike in Exchange Inflows

Having already lost over 50% of its value from its all-time high in just two months, numerous technical indicators are signaling Bitcoin towards even more adverse price reactions.

Following reports of the digital asset crossing the much-dreaded “death cross”, new on-chain data reveals that investors are depositing massive portions of their holdings to exchanges in order to cash out their holdings.

For instance, data from CryptoQuant shows that on June 21 Bitcoin saw the highest daily spike in inflows from external wallets to spot exchanges, last seen during the COVID-19 induced March 2020 crash, that took the cryptocurrency to as low as $3,000.

Even though the leading cryptocurrency has recovered more than $10,000 from the previous weeks, the digital asset has indeed weakened due to China’s brutal crypto crackdown.

Stablecoin Inflows Drop Considerably

At the same time, data from CryptoQuant indicates that the stablecoin inflows to exchanges seem to have dropped as investors turn bearish on Bitcoin.

For instance, during the first five months of the year, the circulating supply of stablecoins was on a steady rise and accelerated somewhat as the market sold off in May. However, stablecoin issuance came to a standstill at the beginning of June as bearish trends took over the Bitcoin market.

Since then, stablecoin inflows to exchanges have fallen to their lowest level last seen in October 2020.

Usually, stablecoin inflows are viewed as bullish catalysts. However, CryptoQuant’s recent newsletter warns of similar spikes in stablecoin issuance in the past followed by a prolonged price declines:

 “After the bottom of the last bear market (2018-2019), we saw a steady rise in issuance events. At the top (June 28, 2019) of this bullish period, there was a large issuance event (the two big spikes in July-August 2019 are due to USDT ETH issuance). It looks like the same is happening right now.”

Meme-based cryptocurrency Dogecoin gets hit the hardest among the top 10 coins and saw its second-worst day of the year on June 22 by plunging down over 36% to $0.17, the lowest level since Apr. 23.

Dogecoin Gets Hit the Hardest Among Top 10 Coins

On May 19, joke cryptocurrency Dogecoin shed over 55% within a single day, but it managed to climb back to almost half of the losses before the daily close.

The meme-based coin is currently trading 77% lower since May 8, from its current all-time high of $0.74 on May 8. The market cap, which was $34.97 billion on June 21, has now slid down to $27.22B in just the last 24 hours.

Dogecoin is currently the biggest loser among the top 10 cryptocurrencies, plunging over 20%, despite major altcoins like XRP, Binance Coin, and Polkadot experiencing double-digit losses.

The value of popular cryptocurrencies remained weak on June 22 after the crypto market witnessed a massive crash a day earlier, following China’s intensified crackdown on Bitcoin.

Over the bigger picture, Dogecoin looks weak that needs upside catalysts to rebound from current levels.

For instance, if Dogecoin declines below the support at $0.25, it will head towards the next support level at $0.2250. A successful test of the support at $0.2250 will push the cryptocurrency towards the next support at $0.2150.

Stefan Parsons’ car emblazoned with the Dogecoin logo crashed into the wall during Stage 2 at Nashville Superspeedway on June 19th. Fans of meme-based cryptocurrency fans pushed the hashtag #dogecar trend on Twitter.

The car was sponsored by Springates, a manufacturer of auto parts whose CEO is a DOGE enthusiast. Parson escaped unhurt but the value of the cryptocurrency did not.

DOGE has a long history on the NASCAR tracks. In April 2014, for instance, Dogecoin fans raised 68 million DOGE worth about $42,000 at the time, via a Reddit campaign to sponsor Josh Wise’s Ford Fusion car. Interestingly, Wise raced in the same team as Stefan Parsons’ father Phil.

Synthetix and Yearn Finance are sinking. If $7 falls, SNX/USDT may halve to $4—or worse. Meanwhile, YFI/USDT is on the cusp of falling further to $26k.

Yearn Finance (YFI)

The automated aggregator allows DeFi investors to draw maximum yields from various protocols. YFI is central to the platform.

Past Performance of YFI

The YFI/USDT is still under the shadow of sellers who dominated in the second half of May 2021.

Bears are in control, and liquidation across the board may flatten out attempts to revive bulls.

Presently, YFI is down nine percent against the USD and ETH on the last trading day.

Day-Ahead and what to Expect

The path of least resistance is southwards.

Although Ethereum’s fundamentals might rejuvenate YFI/USDT price action, candlestick arrangement, and BTC weakness combine to deflate optimistic bulls.

YFI bear bars are banding along with the lower BB, signaling selling pressure below $40k and the middle BB.

YFI/USDT Technical Analysis

YFI Price Daily Chart for June 22

Losses of June 21 were perpendicular, pointing to sellers’ convictions.

Accordingly, every high may present a selling opportunity for YFI/USDT bears, targeting $26k or May 2021 lows.

Unexpected gains from spot levels, preferably with high trading volumes, reversing June 21 losses may trigger a revival with targets at $40k for YFI.

Conversely, further dumps firmly place YFI/USDT price action to sellers.

Synthetix (SNX)

The decentralized derivatives trading DeFi protocol uses SNX as its token. In addition, the platform plans to adopt Optimism as its Layer-2 scaling option.

READ  COTI and Avalanche (AVAX) Technical Analysis: What to Expect?

Past Performance of SNX

SNX sellers have reversed over 80 percent of gains made during the steep increase from November 2020 to 2021 peaks of February 2021.

Losses may continue considering the state of price action, favoring sellers.

SNX is down double-digits as of writing, falling 11 percent against the USD on the last trading day.

Meanwhile, trading volumes rose to $78 million, suggesting possible offloading.

Day-Ahead and what to Expect

SNX sellers, based on price action in the daily chart, are motoring ahead.

At spot rates, dips below $7 confirming June 21 draw-down may see another dump down towards $4—visible reaction points of November and December 2021.

SNX/USDT Technical Analysis

SNX Price Daily Chart for June 22

Confirmation of SNX/USDT bear bar of June 21 below $7 could cement sellers’ conviction.

In that case, SNX prices may halve to $4.

Conversely, suppose prices find support at spot rates, reversing June 21 losses despite the intense selling pressure. In that case, SNX could lift off above $8 to $14 in the medium term.
