On Saturday, December 8, the market seems to be having a break from bearish pressure.

From the top-10 list only two coins are in the red – Litecoin (9 position) and BCH SV.

Curiously, the latter has dropped from position 5 yesterday to 7th place. It is one step behind BCH ABC (6 position). Tether has been in 5th place since yesterday. Bitcoin is showing a tiny rise, trading at $3,430.

Coin shift on the top-10 list

On Friday, the Gemini crypto exchange, set up and run by the Winklevoss crypto twins, announced that they are going to add BCH ABC, ignoring BCH SV. This could be one of the reasons of the shift in the market position of these two coins, as well as their price.

At the time of writing, the price of BCH is $103.69 (the market cap is $1 814 411 160). Its rival BCH SV is trading at $99.85 (the market capitalization is $1 745 105 980).

Binance Coin has moved back to position 15 from 13th place, having stayed in a place closer to the top-ten for a brief while. The current rate of the native Binance asset is $4.54, with the market cap of $594 038 325. Recently, Binance has announced the launch of the Sub-Account feature for institutional traders.

IOTA and NEM have returned to the positions they had held previously – 13 and 14.

Coin shift on the top-10 list

More effort but no result

DASH remains in 16th place despite the fact that one of the world’s largest fast food chains, KFC, announced on Friday that it is starting to accept DASH in Venezuela, intending to do the same in other Latin American countries soon.

Latin America, with its countries facing a hyperinflation at the moment, is actively using Bitcoin and DASH. The latter has been actively increasing its presence in the region, but it does not seem to help the coin’s price grow. However, over the last 24 hours the asset has shown a growth of 8.83 percent.

The only losers in the range from top-20 to the top-10 are BNB and DOGE (20th place).

Even Ethereum Classic has risen 8.37 percent, despite the recent news that one of the major dev teams, ETCDEV, is abandoning the project over the lack of funds from the community.

The rest of the top-100 market

As for virtual assets beyond the top-20 list, the crypto market is mostly bullish today, except for 17 coins, among which are stablecoins TrueUSD and USD Coin.

However, U.Today has recently reported that several prominent traders forecast a further BTC fall, meaning this bullish wave may turn into a bearish one again as soon as tomorrow.

Dash News - Should Warren Buffett Invest in Bitcoin (BTC)? Anthony Pompliano Definitely Thinks So

📰 News
There is a ‘snowball in hell’ possibility that Warren Buffett, an ardent Bitcoin hater, will actually invest in Bitcoin
Should Warren Buffett Invest in Bitcoin (BTC)? Anthony Pompliano Definitely Thinks So

It’s been more than three years since Warren Buffett’s last big acquisition (which he likes to call ‘elephants’). As the 89-year-old billionaire is mulling over his next big buy, crypto evangelist Anthony Pompliano suggests that he could purchase Bitcoin (BTC).

Microsoft’s Bill Gates: You Should Not Expect Bitcoin to Go Up

Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway has a whopping $116 bln to spend, but he simply cannot find the company that would fit the set of his criteria. While Buffett is on the hunt for his next big target, Pompliano claims that Bitcoin would be his best bet. The number one cryptocurrency, according to Pompliano, will be able to generate more profit than all of Buffett’s investments for the next decade.

Wishful thinking

Pompliano’s comment was most definitely sarcastic given that the Oracle of Omaha is a well-known Bitcoin hater. Back in May, after the crypto bubble popped, Buffett called Bitcoin ‘rat poison squared.’ He also claimed that BTC is an asset that ‘doesn’t produce anything.’ Buffett’s vitriolic comments didn’t go unnoticed — as reported by U.Today, Genesis Mining trolled the billionaire with pro-Bitcoin billboards outside of his office.

Wishful thinking

Pantera Capital’s Dan Morehead also wasn’t a fan of the ‘rat poison’ remark, calling banks and credit card companies the rats.

Dash News - Head of Coinbase Believes Late CEO of QuadrigaCX Did Not Plan Fraud

📰 News
Coinbase CEO Brian Armstrong has left comments on Twitter saying he reckons QuadrigaCX did not plan an exit scam

On Thursday, Brian Armstrong, the head of the US-based crypto exchange Coinbase, contributed to the numerous discussions that have been centered on the subject of the recent QuadrigaCX collapse.

In several tweets, Armstrong expressed an assumption that the exchange had planned no fraud, despite the current turmoil around the $190 mln that it owes customers and has not been paid out yet.

Head of Coinbase Believes Late CEO of QuadrigaCX Did Not Plan Fraud

Customers of the no longer operational QuadrigaCX are now having heated battles, using their lawyers in an attempt to recover the funds the exchange owes them.

Why their funds have disappeared is still a big question. The head of the company, Gerald Cotton, passed away at the end of 2018. The CEO was the only person to have access to the laptop which managed the cold wallets. He never mentioned the location of the private keys in the will made two weeks before his death.

Besides, the investigation undertaken by the community found out that allegedly none of those cold wallets actually existed. This also being discussed in court at the moment – the information shared by Quadriga reps does not match the investigation results.

Coinbase looks into the matter too

Armstrong and his team conducted their own research on the subject. As a result, an assumption emerged that several months of Quadriga’s work raised questions about mismanagement.

Presently, auditor Ernst & Young is in charge of the wallets and accounts of the defunct crypto platform. The other day, QuadrigaCX sent the crypto that was remaining on its wallets to the accounts of the company.
