According to Binance Market Data, Ethereum has crossed the 2,500 USDT benchmark and is now trading at 2,500.72998 USDT, with a 3.17% increase in 24 hours. 1 — Bitcoin(BTC) Surpasses 47,000 USDT with a 4.09% Increase in 24 Hours On Feb 09, 2024, 15:22 PM(UTC). According to Binance Market Data, Bitcoin has crossed the 47,000 USDT benchmark and is now trading at 47,029.601563 USDT, with a 4.09% increase in 24 hours. 8 — COTI Integrates Multi-Party Computation Protocol into Ethereum-Based Layer-2 Network According to CryptoPotato, fintech platform COTI has successfully integrated the Multi-Party Computation (MPC) protocol into its privacy-focused Ethereum-based layer-2 network. The design and implementation of the MPC protocol for COTI V2 marks the first development milestone achieved this year. MPC allows parties to perform computations on their private inputs using cryptographic protocols without revealing them to each other, ensuring the confidentiality of participants’ data throughout the computation phase. MPC transactions involve parties contributing encrypted data to a designated black box, which processes the inputs and produces a result shared among the participants. This technique maintains privacy integrity even under third-party scrutiny. MPC endpoints, or participants, will be incorporated into an Extended-Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) execution module, which facilitates the interaction between the EVM execution module and the collaboration of various MPC endpoints. COTI claims that Garbled Circuits, a cryptographic primitive generated by participants after submitting their workload to the MPC module, are more efficient than the Zero-Knowledge protocol used by other L2 networks on Ethereum for implementing robust privacy protection. These Garbled Circuits are deleted after each execution to ensure forward and backward secrecy on the protocol. COTI’s native token has seen a significant surge recently, with data from CoinMarketCap showing an increase of over 81% in the past week, trading at $0.10 at the time of writing. 3 — Bitcoin(BTC) Drops Below 47,000 USDT with a 5.43% Increase in 24 Hours On Feb 09, 2024, 14:21 PM(UTC). According to Binance Market Data, Bitcoin has dropped below 47,000 USDT and is now trading at 46,877.191406 USDT, with a 5.43% increase in 24 hours. 3 — BlackRock and Fidelity’s Bitcoin ETFs Set Record with Over $3 Billion in Assets According to CryptoPotato, BlackRock and Fidelity’s spot Bitcoin exchange-traded funds (ETFs) have set a new record by amassing more assets in their first month of trading than any other ETF launched in the U.S. in the past 30 years. The development comes amid a new report from earlier this week that showed IBIT was among the top five of the largest ETFs by inflows this year. Bloomberg Intelligence data shows BlackRock’s IBIT and Fidelity’s FBTC have each managed to gain over $3 billion in assets within the first 17 trading days of their launch, a feat unmatched by any of over 5,500 ETFs listed. A Bloomberg ETF analyst, Eric Balchunas, highlighted this in a February 8 post, stating that IBIT and FBTC are in a “league of their own.” Previously, the record for the highest assets under management (AUM) in the debut month was held by BlackRock’s iShares Climate Conscious & Transition MSCI USA ETF, which launched on June 8, 2023, and gathered $2.2 billion. According to Balchunas, the BlackRock and Fidelity ETF results are even more remarkable since most other such products on the list were “Bring Your Own Assets” (BYOA) ETFs, implying that one investor was responsible for all the ETF’s AUM. In contrast, BlackRock and Fidelity’s ETFs experienced inflows every trading day since their launch, a phenomenon Balchunas described as “literally unprecedented.” Balchunas also noted that the data excluded ETFs that underwent conversions, like Grayscale’s GBTC, and around 100 mutual funds that converted to exchange-traded funds. He also noted the mass outflows from Grayscale’s Bitcoin ETF, which have been a factor for the spot Bitcoin ETF performance. The Bloomberg ETF analyst noted competition since ten spot Bitcoin ETFs launched on the same day. The ARK 21Shares’s spot Bitcoin ETF (ARKB) and Bitwise (BITB) ETFs ranked 20th and 22nd, respectively. IBIT and FBTC have gained an advantage over the Grayscale Bitcoin Trust (GBTC), the largest fund by assets under management, in at least two liquidity metrics, according to JPMorgan. The Hui-Heubel ratio, a proxy for market breadth, is approximately four times lower for BlackRock and Fidelity ETFs than GBTC, indicating greater market breadth for the former, JPMorgan says. Additionally, the deviation of ETF closing prices from their net asset value (NAV) has approached that of the SPDR Gold Shares ETF for BlackRock and Fidelity’s ETFs, implying improved liquidity. In contrast, GBTC’s deviations remain higher, suggesting lower liquidity than BlackRock and Fidelity’s ETFs. 5 — Ethereum(ETH) Surpasses 2,500 USDT with a 3.43% Increase in 24 Hours On Feb 09, 2024, 11:55 AM(UTC). According to Binance Market Data, Ethereum has crossed the 2,500 USDT benchmark and is now trading at 2,500.469971 USDT, with a 3.43% increase in 24 hours. 9 — Bitcoin(BTC) Surpasses 47,000 USDT with a 3.32% Increase in 24 Hours On Feb 09, 2024, 11:49 AM(UTC). According to Binance Market Data, Bitcoin has crossed the 47,000 USDT benchmark and is now trading at 47,010.46875 USDT, with a 3.32% increase in 24 hours. 10 — Pendle Nears $1 Billion in Total Value Locked Amid Surge in Liquid Restaking Tokens Interest According to CoinDesk, decentralized finance (DeFi) platform Pendle has reached $990 million in total value locked (TVL), with most of that value locked in within the last six months. This surge in interest comes as the market looks for more opportunities for liquid restaking tokens. Pendle recently added support for the BNB chain and real-world assets (RWA). Pendle operates as a price discovery tool by separating DeFi investments into principal tokens (PTs) and yield tokens (YTs), allowing for the trading of future yields and principal on the open market, thus enabling investors to speculate on and lock in future yield rates. Pendle developer RightSide said in an interview on Telegram that the influx of interest in Liquid Restaking Tokens (LRTs) has been the main driver behind Pendle’s recent growth. Liquid restaking token finance (LRTFi) is a new DeFi field that allows for the liquidity of staked assets through the issuance of LRTs, enabling users to earn rewards while their original assets are locked up for securing network services. Pendle is one of the earliest pioneers of LRTFi, offering a unique proposition for users to speculate on EigenLayer yields and points, according to a Telegram interview. Recently, Pendle expanded to the BNB chain and has begun offering products that allow users to leverage real-world assets (RWA). 7 — US Bitcoin Spot ETF Trading Volume Accounts for 10-15% of Global Centralized Exchange Volume According to Foresight News, data from Unfolded reveals that the trading volume of US Bitcoin spot ETFs accounts for 10-15% of the total Bitcoin spot trading volume on global centralized exchanges. This represents only 3% of the total circulating supply of Bitcoin, or approximately 650,000 Bitcoins. The relatively low percentage of Bitcoin spot ETF trading volume in the US compared to the global market highlights the potential for growth in this sector. As more investors become interested in cryptocurrencies and seek exposure to Bitcoin through ETFs, the trading volume and market share of US Bitcoin spot ETFs may increase in the future. 11 — Binance Market Update (2024-02-09) The global cryptocurrency market cap now stands at $1.71T, up by 3.38% over the last day, according to CoinMarketCap data. Bitcoin (BTC) has been trading between $44,606 and $46,750 over the past 24 hours. As of 09:30 AM (UTC) today, BTC is trading at $46,589, up by 4.35%. Most major cryptocurrencies by market cap are trading mixed. Market outperformers include OM, COTI, and DYM, up by 78%, 46%, and 18%, respectively. Top stories of the day: Binance Partners with INTERPOL to Share Expertise in Cyber Policing and Cryptocurrency Investigations Binance Research Explores the Evolving Inscriptions Landscape Bernstein Recommends Buying Mining Stocks for Bitcoin Exposure Bitcoin Crosses $46,000 As Chinese New Year Festivities Begin India’s Central Bank to Introduce Offline Functionality for CBDC Pilot Project Market movers: ETH: $2474.68 (+2.21%) BNB: $322.2 (+1.99%) SOL: $105.89 (+4.33%) XRP: $0.5205 (+1.52%) ADA: $0.5399 (+3.29%) AVAX: $36.23 (+2.29%) DOGE: $0.08146 (+1.86%) TRX: $0.12262 (+0.37%) LINK: $18.389 (-2.73%) DOT: $7.109 (+2.42%) Top gainers on Binance: OM/USDT (+78%) COTI/USDT (+46%) DYM/USDT (+18%) 51 — Bernstein Recommends Buying Mining Stocks for Bitcoin Exposure According to CoinDesk, broker Bernstein suggests purchasing mining stocks to gain exposure to bitcoin, with Riot Platforms and CleanSpark as their top picks. The approval of spot bitcoin exchange-traded funds (ETFs) in the U.S. last month has led to a bottoming out of bitcoin mining companies, and Bernstein advises buying preferred stocks in the sector ahead of the next reward halving. The largest cryptocurrency is expected to maintain momentum for the rest of the year, with the halving event, where miners’ rewards are cut by 50%, set to occur in April. Bitcoin’s price has historically increased after each of the three previous halving events, and the current price is already strong ahead of the upcoming catalyst. Bernstein recommends gaining bitcoin exposure through mining stocks, with Riot Platforms and CleanSpark as their top choices. Analysts Gautam Chhugani and Mahika Sapra believe that positive ETF flows, resilient bitcoin price action, and healthy miners adding capacity into the halving make it a good time to invest in their preferred stocks. They also expect higher prices to lead to higher ETF inflows, resulting in new highs in 2024. Typically, halving events are considered ‘risk-off’ for the sector, as the market aims to clear out high-cost miners operating at unsustainable costs. Bernstein predicts that 15% of the bitcoin hash rate will shut down after the halving, but if prices remain strong, the decline could be more muted. The report also notes that positive ETF flows provide an additional tailwind for the cryptocurrency, with consistent net ETF inflows indicating a bullish market and a higher price-higher inflows feedback loop. 7 — Bitcoin ETFs Experience Third-Largest Inflow Day as BTC Price Soars Over $46,000 According to Cointelegraph:Spot Bitcoin exchange-traded funds (ETFs) saw their third-largest influx on Feb. 8, with a total of $403 million, the same day Bitcoin (BTC) price crossed the $46,000 mark, approaching a new yearly high. This happened despite over $100 million being withdrawn from the Grayscale Bitcoin Trust (GBTC). Bitcoin ETF inflows. Source: Farside Since the launch of these spot Bitcoin ETFs on Jan. 11, they have recorded over $2.1 billion in total inflows, underlining the robust demand for Bitcoin in the market. BlackRock iShares Bitcoin Trust (IBIT), with $204 million, led the pack in terms of inflows, followed by Fidelity with $128 million, ARK 21Shares with $86 million, and Bitwise with $60 million. The remaining seven ETFs combined saw $27 million in inflows. Notably, IBIT surpassed GBTC’s daily trading volume, marking the first time an ETF has achieved this milestone. Bloomberg senior analyst Eric Balchunas pointed out that BlackRock surpassing Grayscale in trading volume is quite a feat, noting that new funds typically take five to 10 years to overtake the category’s “liquidity king.” The positive flow into Bitcoin ETFs is seen as indicative of increased investor appetite for Bitcoin. The net ETF inflows signify that approximately $403 million, or nearly 8,698 BTC, has moved into cold storage. Trading volumes have risen significantly since the US Securities and Exchange Commission approved the listing of spot Bitcoin ETFs. These ETFs saw daily trading volumes exceeding one billion dollars, pointing to heightened investor interest. As the next Bitcoin halving is less than 70 days away, which will reduce the BTC supply from 6.25 BTC to 3.125 BTC per block, the growing institutional demand combined with the diminishing supply could potentially drive BTC to new market highs. 2 — BNB Chain “X” Account Issues Alert on Risky dApps BNB Chain “X” Account has raised an alert about several decentralized applications (dApps) that have been identified as potentially risky, according to a recent tweet from the company. The dApps listed include AMAKUNI, MAGE WARS II, PoPPEcho, and Lucky Star Scription. These dApps were flagged by DappBay’s Red Alarm, a tool that periodically assesses and rates the potential risks associated with different dApps. 8 — Binance Partners with INTERPOL to Share Expertise in Cyber Policing and Cryptocurrency Investigations Binance has continued to strengthen its collaboration with international law enforcement agencies by delivering a virtual law enforcement training session to the International Criminal Police Organization (INTERPOL).

Having delivered over 120 in-person and virtual training sessions in 2023 under its Global Law Enforcement Training Program, Binance has committed to ramping up these collaborative sessions throughout 2024. The latest training session, held on January 24th, was attended by more than 30 INTERPOL officers. Hosted by Binance’s Financial Crime Compliance (FCC) unit, the sharing session delved into the mechanisms and techniques Binance employs to counter cyber threats. It also provided officers insight into collaborating with Binance on criminal investigations, from data request procedures to the freezing or seizure of illicit funds. Horest Au Yeung, an INTERPOL representative, emphasized the importance of cross-collaboration between industry experts and law enforcement communities, especially considering the rise in digital asset adoption and consequent digital space crimes. Jarek Jakubcek, Head of Law Enforcement Training at Binance, asserted the company’s commitment to maintaining cybersecurity through a holistic and collaborative approach. Jakubcek expressed Binance’s honor in actively shaping safer digital landscapes through the sharing of expertise needed to address cyber threats and cryptocurrency-related crimes. Last year, Binance’s FCC unit hosted 120 training sessions, which garnered highly positive feedback from the law enforcement community. In 2024, Binance reiterates its dedication to strengthening cybersecurity in more regions worldwide through increased cooperation with law enforcement agencies. 6 — Weekly Market Highlights – Solana Restarts After 5 Hours Outage 9 February 2024 Macro/TradFi MicroStrategy purchased an additional 850 bitcoin for US$37.2M in January.

Bitcoin mining requires significant energy consumption, raising concerns among policymakers and electric grid planners about the strain on US grids and energy-related carbon dioxide emissions. However, miners argue that they help reduce grid stress by turning off and freeing up power for others to use during critical times. 8 Latest News Ethereum(ETH) Surpasses 2,500 USDT with a 3.17% Increase in 24 Hours — Bitcoin(BTC) Surpasses 47,000 USDT with a 4.09% Increase in 24 Hours — COTI Integrates Multi-Party Computation Protocol into Ethereum-Based Layer-2 Network — Bitcoin(BTC) Drops Below 47,000 USDT with a 5.43% Increase in 24 Hours — BlackRock and Fidelity’s Bitcoin ETFs Set Record with Over $3 Billion in Assets — View More Trending Articles Solana Resilience: Rebounding Strong After 5-Hour Downtime – Will $150 Target Be Achieved?
