We had some nice prices, scares, and NFTs last April 2021. Some people won, some others lost, but the deals in the cryptocurrency world are far from ending. It’s important to stay up to date to make better financial decisions, though. So, let’s check the most remarkable events of the month.

On the markets

  • Bitcoin (BTC) reached another All-Time-High (ATH) of $64,800 back on April 14th. After that, it plummeted to a low of $47,700. The correction was probably due to several factors. …

Blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies are often associated with investments, but this is just the beginning of their potential. They can’t only serve to finances but also being an instrument to help others.

Due to the advantages that they can offer and that can’t be found in any other solution, the blockchain and digital currencies have been taken as excellent tools to improve the philanthropic sector, ranging from payment methods to donation transparency.

The advantages

One of the main benefits that this technology can provide in the charitable sector is the reduction of red tape and costs. Since it can handle a lot…


The hackers never take a break, and let alone if the cryptocurrency market is bullish. Your cryptocurrencies might be safe in your device or favorite exchange, but they always have their ways to steal the coins. A crypto-stealing malware disguised as a feature of Windows 10 is the last of those ways.

To be more specific, the hackers designed a fake website to download DirectX 12 in Windows 10. This pack of functionalities works to develop and run multimedia content, especially videogames. …


Cryptocurrencies can be a great investment, but that’s not all. Payments are their first reason for existence (they’re money, after all), so, you can actually pay with them in a lot of places and for a lot of services. Shops, entertainment, health, food, transport, lodging, you pick. And, believe it or not, pay your monthly bills with cryptos is also possible.

Energy, gas, Internet, phone, insurances, rents, and even credit cards and taxes are included in the available list to spend your Bitcoin and cryptos. Of course, you can always exchange for your local money in your favorite service, but…


Bitcoin and most altcoins seem to be bearish this Friday. The price of the first cryptocurrency has descended by over 26% since its last All-Time-High (ATH) of $64,800 back on April 14th. Indeed, we had today the lowest price in the whole month so far: $47,700 per token. It already bounced back to over $50k, though [CoinMarketCap].

Possible reasons behind this decrease might be related to the planned tax reform in the United States, the recent scam by the Turkish crypto-exchange Thodex, and the fall of the hashrate in Bitcoin mining.

In the first case, Bloomberg reported yesterday that president…

Cryptocurrencies are kind of crazy by themselves. They’re digital money that can work as a lot of things (store of value, stocks, payments, remittances, art…) and that nobody owns or controls. However, beyond this fact, there’s a lot of crazy crypto stories lived by different people worldwide. Some of them good, some others bad. But always crazy.

We’re not going to mention here the mystery around Satoshi Nakamoto, the Bitcoin creator, or the traditional Bitcoin Pizza Day. These are widely discussed topics. Instead, we’re going to focus on some non-very known but very interesting cryptocurrency stories. Let’s discover them!

Amid the last cryptocurrency craze, the Turkish government has decided to ban crypto payments on its territory. This doesn’t mean the citizens can’t use cryptocurrencies anymore, but they won’t be able to pay for goods and services with it, starting April 30th. Ironically, Dogecoin (DOGE) continues to see a meteoric rise this week.

The announcement by the Central Bank of the Republic of Turkey (CBRT) states that “crypto assets entail significant risks”. Mainly, because they’re not regulated, they’re volatile and the transactions on the blockchain are irrevocable.

“It is considered that their use in payments may cause non-recoverable losses for…


From being a tiny land, the crypto space has grown into a whole world. And it’s, indeed, already present worldwide. We’ve passed the $2t mark in market capitalization, Bitcoin is now over $63k, decentralized finance is resounding loud, and Non-fungible tokens (NFTs) are becoming mainstream. All this attention doesn’t come without a price: cryptocurrency regulations.

A lot of people, from all countries, are adopting cryptocurrencies for numerous uses and reasons. Store of value, fast remittances, payments, investments, art and collectibles. The governments are paying attention now, and with that attention comes the rules to avoid crimes.


We’re probably getting used to it, but yes, we have new All-Time-Highs (ATHs) for Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH), with XRP following suit. Finally, Bitcoin managed to break the $60k resistance, and now we have a record of over $63,700 per coin. Meanwhile, ETH surpassed $2,300 per coin on the eve of its next update.

Two main reasons may be driving the price of BTC up. According to Glasssnode, there are more and more BTC holders in the long term. They’ve been buying and withdrawing from cryptocurrency exchanges to store their coins in their own wallets. …
