CoinMetrics.io had reported a major crypto whale spotting on Tuesday via Twitter. A major Bitcoin holder had apparently moved 65,000 BTC after five years of hodl (since April 2015) to a private account. What could be the cause of this sudden movement?

The crypto media & advertising platform Cointelegraph held an interview with a group of traders to discuss possible causes of the crypto market crash which could possibly be linked to the ongoing Covid19. News from DigiFinex reported on how these events could easily affect both traditional and digital markets especially when facing huge bitcoin movements.

R3’s blockchain platform, Corda is now in use by the Nasdaq Stock Exchange. Corda is being employed as part of Nasdaq’s technology ecosystem, in a bid to create “dynamic and trusted digital asset marketplaces”, says Johan Toll, Head of Digital Assets at Nasdaq. 

Blockchain’s ledger technology is being used as part of the Nasdaq Financial Framework which links several capital markets services such as matching engines, surveillance, data discovery and reporting services. 

Toll adds that this partnership with R3 and blockchain technology “plays an important role in Nasdaq’s development of solutions”. In September 2019, the exchange listed a new decentralized finance (DeFi) index, alongside traditional indices like S&P 500 and the Dow.

A fake news has been circulating on facebook using the name of Singapore’s Deputy Prime Minister Heng Swee Keat for a Crypto Scam promotion. At least 3 of these similar articles have been found being shared around the web. These fake reports have misled people into investing to get high returns, said the singapore police on Wednesday 29 April 2020.

The Deputy Prime Minister then immediately took the false news into his own social media account to confirm that these Facebook posts were fake. A scam that is being used to promote dubious investment schemes which are “definitely untrue” and “most certainly not endorsed” by him.
