  • Researchers propose new scheme to help courts test deanonymized blockchain data
    Cointelegraph.com News - 12 hours ago
    A team of researchers proposed five “argumentative schemes” designed to protect the rights of crypto crime suspects while also helping investigators. A team of researchers from Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg recently published a paper detailing methods investigators and courts can use to determine the validity of deanonymized data on the Bitcoin (BTC) blockchain.The team’s preprint paper, “Argumentation Schemes for Blockchain Deanonymization,” lays out a blueprint for conducting, verifying and presenting investigations into crimes involving cryptocurrency transactions. While the paper focuses on the German and United States legal systems, the authors state that the findings should be generally applicable. Bitcoin-related crime investigations revolve around the deanonymization of suspected criminals, a process made more challenging by blockchains’ pseudonymous nature. Users conducting blockchain transactions are identified by wallets (unique software addresses) instead of legal names. However, blockchains are inherently transparent. Whenever data is added to a blockchain ledger, the transaction is recorded and made available for anyone…

  • Is Bitcoin Poised For A Comeback To Higher Price Levels? Experts Weigh In
    NewsBTC - 12 hours ago
    Bitcoin (BTC), the largest cryptocurrency by market cap, is currently showing signs of a new momentum refresh and the beginning of a newly formed bull run. Market analyst Justin Bennet accurately predicted this move, citing recent range highs and a cluster of short liquidations in the $27,500 area. However, Bennet suggests an expected market between $27,500 and $28,250. He further claimed:  Bitcoin’s pullback today is not surprising, given the aggressiveness of the weekend rally. The pullback will remain constructive as long as Bitcoin can stay above $27,500 on a 4-hour and daily closing basis. Related Reading: Can This THORChain New Feature Push Back RUNE Bears? Is Bitcoin On The Verge Of Reaching $30,000 Again?
