Scotland Yard has seized cryptocurrencies worth £180 million

Hello everyone, this is our weekly crypto digest. Here you’ll find everything from a weekly market summary and top news to the hottest new listings on exchanges, and even memes to cheer you up. To get these updates as soon as we post them, follow us on Twitter.

Weekly Market Summary

Scotland Yard has seized cryptocurrencies worth £180 million (almost $250 million). The Met confiscated £114 million ($158 million) worth of cryptocurrency late last month, making this the second significant seizure in recent weeks.

The total value of the crypto seized in the two hauls is £294 million (almost $408 million).

Since the beginning of the year, hackers behind ransomware assaults have made roughly $33 million in Bitcoin.

If Russian-speaking cybercrime organization REvil receives the $70 million it demanded from 200 US firms struck by a major ransomware assault earlier this month, this amount can rise dramatically.

At $30,000, Bitcoin (BTC) is experiencing a “reset” in investor behavior, and if the trend continues, the price will rise.

On July 13, on-chain monitoring resource Ecoinometrics stated that the only way is “up” for BTC/USD if hodlers continue accumulating coins.

Optimistic Ethereum L2 scaling

Developers claim transactions will be confirmed instantly (0.6 transactions per second), and users’ expenses for conducting transactions through the exchange will be reduced by up to 10 times.

Though deposits from the first level of the Ethereum network in Optimism are confirmed instantly, the reverse operation will take seven days until an appropriate service is developed.

Support for Ethereum Scaling Solution Polygon

Coinbase has announced that decentralized apps (dApps) based on the Polygon (MATIC) blockchain are supported in both the mobile and desktop browser versions of its digital wallet from now.

According to the announcement, Coinbase’s clients would be able to perform transactions faster and cheaper, as well as gain easy access to Polygon-based dApps.

Filecoin is a decentralized data storage network that allows users to sell their extra storage on an open market. IPFS (InterPlanetary File System), a peer-to-peer network for storing and sharing data files, uses it as an incentive and security layer.

Filecoin transforms IPFS into an “algorithmic market,” in which users pay storage providers in Filcoin’s native token, FIL, for storing and distributing data on the network.
