Bitcoin went into dive that lasted almost the entire previous week. The reason for this was the reports on the control of information and the possible regulation of the market of crypto-currencies. The fall continued until January 24, when the rate fell to $ 10.67 thousand. Since January 25, bitcoin to dollar rate showed a positive growth and easily exceeded $ 11,000.

Everyone makes their own conclusions from this situation. General director of one of the largest banks in Russia VTB hastened to say that he does not believe in the growth of bitcoin, calling it a "fake currency." It should be noted that this judgment is absolutely not original, and the Russian banker did not bring any weighty arguments, saying only that the authorities will not allow the development of the crypto-currency market that is not under their control.

Meanwhile, this week independent rating agency Weiss Ratings conducted an investment analysis of 74 crypto-currencies. It follows from the published report that bitcoin received a C + rating due to high volatility, as well as problems with scalability, power consumption and control. Rating A as a result did not get to anyone, and the rating B received Ethereum, Cardano and Neo. Rating D received Novacoin and Salus. The experts of Weiss clarified that the estimates of A and B can be interpreted as recommendations for purchase. At the same time, investors should not worry too much about the C rating - it means that the asset should be held. The marks D and E mean that it is better to sell the crypto currency. The evaluation was conducted by a specially created computer model that takes into account four indices: the main, technological, and risk and benefit indices. Let's see if live traders listen to the recommendations of the digital brain.

It’s hardly possible that the project My Big Coin (MBC) to get into any serious rating. The US Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) filed a $ 6 million lawsuit against its creators Randal Creter and Mark Gillespie, who are accused of fraud, the creation of a financial pyramid scheme and the misappropriation of funds. Crater and Gillespie did not invent anything new. As noted by representatives of the CFTC, the accused launched a website of a non-existent crypto currency, which contained a lot of false statements, such as trading MBC on crypto-exchange exchanges, providing gold and cooperation with Mastercard. "In reality, all the data on trade were illusory, and any payments that clients received were taken from the contributions of other deceived investors on the principle of the Ponzi scheme," reads the CFTC. Recently, the CFTC filed lawsuits against two more companies, accusing them of creating fraudulent investment schemes related to crypto-currencies.

Technically advanced miners work much more subtly. According to the independent expert on cyber security, Troy Marsh, recently, the miners began actively integrating the code into advertisements on YouTube through the DoubleClick platform from Google. As the expert notes, advertisements from the DoubleClick platform contain the code written in JavaScript, which allows the creators of announcements to mine the Monero crypto currency through the Coinhive service. The messages about malware quickly spread across social networks. Representatives of Google promptly stated that the problem was solved in two hours while the TrendMicro specialists note that the problem is still relevant.
