LUNA Records 100% Growth In A Single Day. More Upside Coming?

LUNA has been on the decline since the crash of the UST rocked the crypto space earlier this month. What had been one of the most successful cryptocurrencies in the market had quickly turned sour. The digital asset had fallen from trading around the $100 level to trading a couple of zeros below $1, causing holders to lose billions of dollars. Nevertheless, a lot of investors continue to hold out hope and trade the coin, which has led to multiple rallies. Up 100% In One Day On Sunday, LUNA had recorded one of its most successful days since the crash. After falling to $0.0001, it had promptly rallied once more as the daily trading volume had ramped up. This saw the digital asset hit as high as $0.0002 before the end of Sunday. The 100% had no doubt sparked more interest from crypto investors that had seen more people move into the digital asset. Related Reading | Exchange Inflows Rock Bitcoin, Ethereum As Market Struggles To Recover LUNA’s market cap which had declined significantly last week had begun to pick up on the back of this rally. The market cap which was sitting below $1 billion as of Saturday had regained its position above this level and has now settled above $1.2 billion. The volume continues to remain on the high side even with the price now 99.9% lower than where it used to be a few weeks ago. Mainly, the interest in the digital asset has come from the fact that it is now highly volatile. Now, while volatilit...

How CFTC Handle Crypto Ponzi Scheme Cases – Their Measures

The Wall Street Journal reported: According to Rostin Behnam, the head of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC), there are more fraud and manipulation involving cryptocurrencies. This means regulators that need more assistance. “The loss of several millions of dollars in digital assets as a result of phishing attacks, protocol exploits, and other misleading and fraudulent schemes has become the norm.” Behnam made this statement said in a video interview at the Chainalysis Links conference on Wednesday, May 18. “Recent global conflicts have demonstrated how people who threaten the American economy and the public, in general, can use digital assets,” Behnam stated. Following Terra’s dip, which sent shockwaves through the cryptocurrency market, the CFTC Chairman spoke out. According to CoinMarketCap data, the market value of all cryptocurrencies has dropped by approximately 350 billion dollars in the last few days. Terra’s LUNA and the algorithmic stablecoin UST were not left out, in addition to Bitcoin, Ethereum, and a few other cryptocurrencies. According to Behnam, since 2015, the CFTC has taken different steps to stop illegal activity. In the previous fiscal year, 23 of these procedures were made public. According to him, accusations of fraud were made in nearly half of all crypto-related cases. “I also urge everyone here today to continue supporting regulations that will make these markets more open, safe, and stab...
