Security company uncer has released Information on a serious security Vulnerability that affects crypto Wallets that were generated using web Browsers between 2011 and 2015 they have Estimated that $2.1 billion of crypto is At risk the team un ciphered were Working on a project to retrieve some Lost Bitcoin in a wallet created during These dates and while they were Presumably successful in that they Uncovered an issue with generated by Bitcoin JS but this doesn't only affect Bitcoin either the company highlighted Dogecoin Litecoin and zcash too the Advice here is straightforward and if You fall into that 2011 to 2015 category Or you know anyone who might heed their Advice they wrote If you are an Individual who has generated a self- Custody wallet using a web browser Before 2016 you should consider moving Your funds to a more recently created Wallet generated by trusted Software and finally we have yesterday's Ripple chaos black rocks Bitcoin ETF Filing is every other thought for many Crypto folk particularly as we near the Sec's first deadline for a decision However some good oldfashioned fake news Caused a brief spike in Ripple's price And some worry it puts the Bitcoin ETF Filing in Jeopardy yesterday Braden Lindrea covered the hoax xrp ETF filing

That brought about a brief but not small Spike in price the fake filing was Created by someone posing as black Rock's manager director Daniel schweer And after xrp pumped 12.3% in just 30 minutes it was Confirmed as a hoax and the price Tumbled back down again the bigger Question here is if it will affect black Rock's very real ETF application so why Could this be the case well the SEC has Previously criticized Bitcoin for being A market that can be manipulated there's No doubt that this sort of hoax and Market reaction adds Credence to that Bloomberg's ETF analyst Eric balinas Told coin Telegraph there's no doubt it Is a bad look that arguably validates The fraud and manipulation that SEC used As grounds for past denial however he Also said that he doubts any of this Will impact the situation with spot Bitcoin ETFs a partner at the law firm Piper Alderman and chair of blockchain Australia Michael Bina echoed the Sentiment stating it's unlikely an Isolated rumor such as this would Provide a legal basis for delaying ETF Applications already being considered Particularly where they are already Subject to deadlines as much as as that Seems like the logical reaction the SEC Has rejected spot Bitcoin ETF filings in The past over acts of Market

Manipulation and this sorts of thing is Certainly not a positive the fake xrp Filing has been referred to the Delaware Department of Justice so as balcon ass Puts it someone out there is crapping Their pants as we speak and rightly So okay that's it for today consider Yourself informed thank you for Listening to the rise and crypto podcast By coin Telegraph if you're enjoying These daily updates please make sure you Let us know by following subscribing or Leaving a review have a great day let's Do this again [Music] Tomorrow

Coinbase
OUR TAKE

Coinbase is a popular cryptocurrency exchange. It makes it easy to buy, sell, and exchange cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin. Coinbase also has a brokerage service that makes it easy to buy Bitcoin as easily as buying stocks through an online broker. However, Coinbase can be expensive due to the fees it charges and its poor customer service.
