In the Daily: $4K Bitcoin, Grin Fund Grows, Cryptopia Wallets Return

In the first weekend despatch of The Daily, we share some of the exuberance thats greeted BTC passing the symbolic $4K threshold. We also check up on how the Grin developer fund is going and the progress that Cryptopia exchange is making in returning to full strength in the wake of its hack.

Traders Bullish as Bitcoin Passes $4K and BCH Soars

Having flirted with the price point for a few days, BTC finally mustered up the courage to ease into $4,000 territory early on March 16. Crypto twitter had a lot to say about this miniature milestone, which marked BTCs first return to high ground since Feb 24. Crypto Thies proclaimed there to be a three-week buy signal, the first since October 2016, when BTC was at $500.

Not everyone was getting carried away with BTCs latest price point, given its previous failures to hold this position. Nevertheless, given the major moves from scores of altcoins over the past fortnight, coupled with BTCs more modest overnight gains, theres confidence clearly returning to the crypto markets. BCH has been the best performing top 10 coin over the last 24 hours, however, climbing 15 percent to reach $155.

Poloniex Makes First Grin Donation

In addition to enabling grin withdrawals, Poloniex has announced that its made good on its previous pledge to support the Grin developer fund. 50 percent of trading fees from the first month were committed to the Grin General Fund, followed by 25 percent for the next 11 months. Poloniex elected to do so on the basis that we believe in supporting crypto projects which encourage distributed voluntary development and fair, decentralized methods of token distribution. The first donation has seen 1.27864 BTC go to the Grin fund to support further development of the Mimblewimble privacy coin.

Cryptopia Inches Closer to Full Service

Cryptopia has updated its customers on the progress its making in restoring hundreds of altcoin wallets. Since suffering a major hack in January that claimed close to 10 percent of its crypto, the New Zealand-based platform has been slowly but steadily getting back on track. Its now established a coin info page, displaying the status of the altcoins whose wallets its restoring. Traders will be relieved to learn that animecoin is now active, though theyll need to wait a little longer to deposit and withdraw asiacoin. The exchange also took the time out to reflect on the local Christchurch shooting.
