Crypto Market News and Events for Today

Below are some news and events in the crypto industry as of July 25.

Binance and CEO CZ Seek Dismissal of CFTC Case

The global leading crypto exchange Binance and its CEO Changpeng Zhao (CZ) seek the dismissal of a lawsuit from the US Commodities Futures Trading Commission (CFTC).

According to a filed document on July 24 to an Illinois District Court, several Binance entities, CZ, and Samuel Lim, the former Chief Compliance Officer, laid out a plan to file two different motions for the dismissal of the CFTC case before July 27.

The document disclosed that the company’s foreign entities and CZ would jointly file for Motion to Dismiss the Complaint. On the other hand, Lim will be filing a separate Motion to Dismiss the Complaint and will combine parts of the filed motion by CZ and Binance entities.

Additionally, the exchange seeks permission to surpass a 15-page limit on the brief for supporting its motion. While requesting a 50-page brief, Binance cited the complex nature of the CFTC’s lawsuit against it.

Recall that in March, the CFTC filed a lawsuit against Binance, accusing the crypto exchange of not completing registration with the commission. 

It alleged that the exchange violated US laws by conducting several crypto transactions for US-based users. According to CFTC, Binance claimed to have blocked US residents on its platform but hideously permitted their activities since 2019.

XRP Emerged as The Top Traded Altcoin of The Year

Ripple’s victory over its case with the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) brought a massive breakthrough to its native token XRP. 

From an asset under the scrutiny of regulators at the beginning of 2023, XRP emerged as the most traded crypto token of the year. XRP soared on the favorable court ruling for Ripple to hit a milestone with massive engagement from many investors and traders. 

According to data from Kaiko, XRP’s trade volume surged to $150 billion through several transactions to highlight its stance as the top-traded altcoin of 2023. The performances of other prominent altcoins are far below the height of the performance of the blockchain firm’s native coin.

Solana (SOL), Dogecoin (DOGE), Binance Coin (BNB), and Polygon (MATIC) bagged the second, third, fourth, and fifth positions, respectively. However, their transaction volume falls between $50 and $100 billion annually.

Regarding prices, the altcoins have posted impressive outcomes more than the primary crypto asset Bitcoin. XRP witnessed a surge of over 52% in its price since mid-June.

Pro-XRP Lawyer’s Twitter Account Compromised, Now Promotes Fake XRP Giveaways

A hacker recently compromised the Twitter account of pro-XRP attorney Jeremy Hogan.  After getting access to his account, the attacker now promotes fake XRP giveaways to users from the account. Hogan is yet to recover his Twitter account as of 5:00 EST on July 25.

Some lawyers, such as Jesse Hynes, founder of Seedstarter, and James Filan, took to Twitter to reveal the situation.  Also, the attorneys warned users to be careful about fake promotional giveaways from hackers of the account.

Notably, the promotional adverts from the compromised account are focused on free XRP to users in celebration of recent Ripple’s win over its case with the SEC. It attached a link that leads to a fake Ripple website.

Further, another prominent XRP lawyer, John Deaton, helped share the news about the hacking of Hogan’s Twitter account. Deaton had witnessed a similar hack on his account in the past.

As such, Deaton gave some tips to the XRP community on how it could halt the attacker from further use of Hogan’s account. 

The attorney wrote: “This is what to do please. It took me way too long to get control of my account back.”

SEC Accuses Binance.US And CZ of ‘Wash Trading’ –  A Mirage Crypto Trading Process

The United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has accused Binance.US, the American branch of Binance Int’l., of engaging in a mirage of crypto trading. 

According to a report from WSJ on July 24, SEC claims that over 70% of the trade volume on Biannce.US is manipulated by Sigma Chain’s accounts.

Further, the regulator reported that Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao (CZ) is aware that wash trading covers the entire process.

Wash trading allows traders or firms to deceptively manipulate trading volumes in the financial markets. It involves the repeated buying and selling of some crypto tokens to present an outlook of increased market activity.

A previous report from WSJ revealed that the Swiss trading firm Sigma Chain is under the influence of CZ. The allegation over the mirage trading process could have a remarkable impact on Binance, considering the existing lawsuits with the SEC and CFTC. Also, the crypto exchange is currently planning to file motions for the dismissal of its case with CFTC.

Reacting to the accusation, a BiannceUS spokesperson denied such activities on the American branch of the exchange. The person stated that neither BinanceUS nor CZ has ever engaged in or supported wash trading.

Deribit’s BTC Volatility Index Reach Historic Lows

A recent report disclosed that Deribit’s Bitcoin volatility index has hit its lowest point in years. The dip indicates that BTC could have no price turbulence soon. 

The report came from a crypto derivatives analytics platform, Greeks Live, noting that the volatility index for BTC and Ether dipped to a multi-year low of 37%. Also, the DVOL algorithm noted that the recorded implied volatility level is the lowest in the history of crypto.

According to Greek Live, prevailing low liquidity strongly depressed implied volatility (IV) levels for BTC. This means that derivatives traders have lost confidence in seeing major moves in crypto markets in the short term. Also, there could be an extension of the absence of volatility.

It noted the fact that the overall volatility of crypto assets has been plummeting gradually over time. Hence, the implication is forceful pressure on the implied volatility of crypto to maintain new lows continually.

DVOL stands for the Deribit Implied Volatility Index. The index analyzes options activity and highlights the expected volatility for a crypto asset for the next 30 days. This means that the index can show investors’ expectations of turbulence over a crypto’s price.

Crypto Platform Robinhood Makes a Move to the UK, Appoints Local CEO
