Ep01- Dr. Ruja – Companion Guide For BBC’s “The Missing Cryptoqueen” Podcast

Is Dr. Ruja Ignatova the cryptocurrency world’s biggest scammer? The competition is fierce, there are so many faces and stories fighting for that spot, but none of them is on the FBI Most Wanted List. Dr. Ruja is. Great, but, why is NewsBTC revisiting the 2019 true crime podcast “The Missing Cryptoqueen”? Because Jamie Bartlett, the journalist behind the project, just released a new episode.  Episode 10 of The Missing Cryptoqueen is now out. The hunt it back on: Israel, Dubai, Luxembourg, The Eurovision Song Contest & Krispy Kremes. Sorry, it’s taken me & ⁦@GeorgiaJCatt⁩ a while. And welcome to our new teammate ⁦@ByrnesyGsy⁩! https://t.co/bfZWgBqeeP — Jamie Bartlett (@JamieJBartlett) September 28, 2022 Is there new information? Did they FIND Dr. Ruja Ignatova The only thing we know for sure is that there’ll be a few new episodes, and that’s all we needed to hear. A BBC production, “The Missing Cryptoqueen” features various music and sound design, witness testimonies, interviews, and sound bites. There’s even original music in this podcasting extravaganza.  Related Reading: How Bitcoin Phishing Scams Are Stealing Millions NewsBTC will produce companion pieces for each of “The Missing Cryptoqueen’s” episodes. With summaries, quotes from the episode, and extra material from all over the web, this is the feature you people didn’t know you needed. Have this window open as you listen to each episode, it’ll enhance the already phenomenal experience. You can download episodes directly at the BBC, or listen to “The Missing Cryptoqueen” through Apple, Spotify, or iVoox. About Episode One – Dr. Ruja This is the introductory episode, it presents Dr. Ruja Ignatova and the OneCoin world. We feel the size of the scam, we hear from the people that fell for it and the voices of the true believers. It begins with Bitcoin and Satoshi Nakamoto’s story, goes to a OneCoin seminar in Mbarara, a town in Western Uganda, and ends with Dr. Ruja’s disappearance in October 2017. In “The Missing Cryptoqueen’s” first episode we can also see what a charismatic leader could do with bitcoin’s story and narrative. If Dr. Ruja Ignatova didn’t plagiarize it, she at least was heavily inspired by Satoshi Nakamoto’s mystique and discourse. Using quotes from her speeches, we hear Dr. Ruja speaking about a rotten financial system and corrupt banking institutions. About the possibility of banking the unbanked and what that would do for the world. About bitcoin’s pizza day story and how that could happen to OneCoin holders. However, Dr. Ruja’s OneCoin was better than bitcoin. It was here to replace it, in fact. Whenever you hear that, run. That should’ve been the witnesses’ first warning. In episode one, we hear about the OneLife network. The social part of the scam. We hear from a UK victim who assisted to the webinars, from a OneLife employee and insider, and we listen to an African song about OneCoin. There’s emotion in all of their voices. And an open wound. Near the end, we hear about 2017 and Dr. Ruja’s disappearance from people that were there at the scene. What happened? So far, there are nine more episodes of BBC’s “The Missing Cryptoqueen.” Let’s hope we get an answer to that question.

She appeared on the front cover of prestigious business magazines, she has degrees from Oxford and Konstanz University and is fluent in several languages.” “Thousands of people were filling stadiums to hear Dr. Ruja talk, to buy OneCoin and join this financial revolution.” “But in October 2017, there was a big OneCoin event in Lisbon, Portugal and Dr. Ruja was scheduled to speak.” Extra Material And Episode Credits This guide’s extra material comes courtesy of the podcast series’s IMDB page.

Shiba Inu Adds Nearly 36,000 Holders Since June Despite Crypto Market Turmoil

The price trend of Shiba Inu has been following the rest of the cryptocurrency market and remains negative. Notably, SHIB is still seeking to reclaim the high points it reached last year, when the value and popularity of the meme coin surged. As of this writing, SHIB is trading at $0.00001145, down 4.5% in the last seven days, data from Coingecko show, Sunday. Despite the crypto market’s sluggish condition, a portion of the dog-themed coin’s investors are optimistic that the asset will recover and are boosting their coin purchases while ignoring the market’s weakness. According to data from CoinMarketCap, as of September 24, SHIB has 1,226,031 holding addresses, representing an increase of around 35,835 new holdings over the course of three months. The new holders represent a 3% increase from the 1,190,195 who were registered on June 26. Related Reading: Dogecoin (DOGE) Is On Top Of Whales’ Menu – Here’s Why Shiba Inu: Increasing Use Case In addition to the prospect that new SHIB holders may wager on the coin’s appreciation, investors are likely drawn by SHIB’s rising utility. It is worth mentioning that interest in meme-based cryptocurrencies waned as a result of unfavorable publicity around the coins’ supposed lack of utility. Since June, Shiba Inu’s value has been on a roller-coaster ride, but the price has mostly remained low. The coin’s three-month high price was $0.000017 on August 15, and as of the time of writing, it had gained about 5% in the last 24 hours. Previously, the majority of retail investors liquidated around the price and then sought entry points as the memetoken approached $0.00001. Due to the massive concentration of tokens in the hands of small and medium-sized whales, Shiba Inu faces a significant increase in selling pressure whenever it succeeds to breach past local resistance barriers. Holding On To The Meme Coin Meanwhile, around 30% of SHIB investors have held the asset for more than a year, according to statistics from Into The Block. Despite the ongoing bear market, investors have generally abstained from disposing of their coins. These holders are fostering a bullish mood among investors while aiming to eliminate SHIB as a quick-profit asset. As of the time of writing, the trading volume of Shiba Inu is still declining, hence the token’s volatility remains high. The decline in trade volume is unfavorable for a coin that heavily depends on speculative appeal. As the number of SHIB holders increases, it appears that interest in the coin is waning. Google Trends data indicates that global searches for the keyword “Shiba Inu” decreased to their lowest level in the past 12 months, suggesting that SHIB could be losing its most avid fans.

U.S. Federal Reserve Set To Hike Rates Above 400 BPs – How Will Crypto Market React?

The United States Federal Reserve is tightening, and interest rates hike has heavily impacted on the crypto market. Earlier this month, Bloomberg Analyst Mike McGlone McGlone said Bitcoin would outperform traditional stocks as interest rates hike. However, to this point, Bitcoin does not seem to follow Bloomberg’s predicted trend. As a matter of fact, despite Bloomberg’s bullish standpoint, Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies are still in a crash. For example, BTC and ETH dropped by 2% after the Fed’s announcement and bounced back. BTC is currently trading below $19,000. The Fed’s Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) manages the economy during inflation and recession by controlling the money supply in the country. The Fed maintains the money supply via quantitative tightening and easing of reserves. As a result, a rise in interest rates triggers volatility in the market. Related Reading: Prepare For Volatility: Data Suggests Bitcoin Gets Chaotic During FOMC Meetings Inflation Would Drop To 2% By 2025, Says Federal Reserve The Federal Reserve revealed its plans to tackle inflation at Thursday’s FOMC. The Fed 75bps interest rate hike is just the tip of the iceberg as it plans to raise the rates as high as 400bps by the end of 2022. In August, the CPI indicated 8.3% YoY inflation, but the Federal Reserve forecasts inflation to come down to 2% by 2025. The Fed Reserve plans to bring inflation down to 5.4% by 2022 and 2.8% by 2023. Reports show that Fed raised this year’s interest benchmark by four times. The current rates are between 2.25% to 2.50%. From the CNBN Fed Survey for September, Fed’s interest hike would remain at the peak rate for 11 months. John Ryding, the Chief economic advisor at Brean Capital, commented in response to the survey. Ryding said the Fed has finally realized the inflation problem is critical. He thinks the Fed’s monetary tightening rate is a ‘positive real policy rate.’ The economist advises Fed to increase the current rate by 5%. The survey reported that among 35 survey respondents, some economists, strategists, and fund managers think Fed might overdo its tightening. Recession Would Hit Global Economy – World Bank The World Bank says recession would hit the global economy because of the war-like monetary policies of the world economy. Svan Henrich, the founder of Northman Trader, thinks interest rates would depend on recession than inflation in the next year. He thinks Jerome Powell, Chairman of the Fed Reserve, emulates Paul Volcker. Henrich further advised Powel to pivot before hitting the 40bps rates target. Paul Volcker is the former Chairman of the U.S Fed Reserves. Related Reading: Bitcoin Dumps After Revisiting June Lows, Where Does The Bottom Lie? Jerome refused to say much about the recession, saying he didn’t know the depth or when the recession would occur. Meanwhile, Fed dismissed all speculations of recession. Everyone awaits the release of the following inflation data in the Consumer Protection Index for September. In addition, the next Federal Open Market Meeting will take place on November 2.

Robinhood Lists USDC, It’s First Stablecoin

Robinhood hasn’t been shy about it’s desire to be a player in crypto. The platform has had a few years of ups and downs as it’s navigated it’s crypto offerings. This week, however, the platform secured a win on the crypto front by listing it’s first stablecoin, USDC. What We Know The news first came straight from the horses mouth, as Robinhood’s Twitter posted a tweet this morning sharing the news. The token is Robinhood’s 17th supported crypto, and third largest in market cap behind blue chips Bitcoin and Ethereum. It’s the latest token addition since adding Cardano (ADA) at the beginning of the month. It is a growing list of crypto tokens for Robinhood, who also added Polygon in recent weeks. Additionally, the move shows more bolstering growth for Circle’s USDC, which has sought out the number one spot over Tether’s USDT – the longtime dominant stablecoin. The narrative has been driven by an ideology that Tether’s account management is less transparent and straightforward than USDCs. Robinhood (HOOD) has had a challenging year on the NASDAQ. | Source: NASDAQ: HOOD on TradingView.com Related Reading: Ripple (XRP) Adds Over 20% In A Week While Others Plunge Heavily The Stablecoin Battle In recent months, the good folks over at Arcane Research put together future growth projections based on USDC’s momentum this year, which shows USDC overtaking USDT’s number one spot as early as mid-October. The projected gap for today’s number is likely a bit closer than what we’ve seen in reality, however, signaling that a USDC takeover for the top spot could take another 4-6 months. That’s been exacerbated by USDC whale holdings percentage hitting a two-year low in recent weeks. As our team cited, that movement has been driven by broader market movement, as well as U.S. sanctions on Tornado Cash. Exchange deposits have been substantially low for USDC as well, but mean transaction volumes are still flying high in recent months. Tornado Cash and other external factors, such as threats of U.S. legislation on stablecoins and other crypto, have led to more negative sentiment around stables than positive. Robinhood’s adoption of USDC could help spur the growth in catching up with USDT’s lead. However, it remains to be seen how the more casual investor that typically frequents Robinhood will fare with a stablecoin asset, particularly one that doesn’t generate any interest.
