Number of the Week

Chart of the Week

Bitcoin reached another milestone on April 20 when the fourth halving took place, which cut block rewards for miners in half. The Bitcoin network saw fees surge up to $128 before falling sharply a day after. This surge in fees has been a boon for Bitcoin miners who, despite the halving, saw their earnings spike.

The surge in revenue is attributed to the heightened minting activity of the newly launched Runes protocol, which coincided with the halving.

Demonstrating Leverage Trading With BTC

Initial Capital: $1,000

Leverage: 10x (Controlling a $10,000 position)

BTC Price: $65,000

If You Profit (Gains Amplified)

If You Lose (Losses Amplified)

BTC loses 1%, dropping to $64,350. Your loss is $100 (1% x $10,000). For an initial capital of $1,000, this is a 10% loss.

Security Tips

Phishing Ad on Google 

An advertisement on Google was impersonating cryptocurrency trading platform Whales Market, and netizens who clicked the link were directed to a phishing website that contained malware able to drain wallets if connected.

Here’s How to Shield Yourself From Phishing Sites

1. Scrutinize any domain requesting to connect to your wallet. If unsure, refuse and exit the website.

2. Watch for warnings from your browser. For example, if it indicates that a website isn’t secure due to disabled HTTPS protocol, your assets are at risk.

3. If you’re unsure of a link in a Google search result, open a new tab and type in the address you wish to visit. Scammers use fraudulent links that mimic genuine ones.
