Binance hack: If bitcoin is so safe, why is it a target ...

[idea]A bitcoin wallet for daily users

What if there was a wallet for people that would like the anonymity of bitcoin and the stability of the dollar.
Here is how it works it shorts half of your balance 1x leverage on bitmex.
so if you deposit one bitcoin at $20,000(10,000 long and 10,000 short) and it drops to $1
you would make $9,999.50 on the short and lose $9,999.50 on the long.
So your current balance would still be $20,000
So even if bitcoin lost 99.99% of its value you would never lose money.
This would be great for business owners that accept bitcoin.

Meridian Fund Series [Minimum investment 100,000 USD]
The Meridian Fund Series is composed of three index funds which track the top 10 crypto-currency assets by market capitalization. Each fund option has a variable contingency for cash allocation. Please see the links below for more information:
C10 Hedged
C10 is a fund offered by Invictus, composed of the top 10 crypto-currency assets by market capitalization. Through a hedging mechanism, this fund offers greater drawdown protection for investors who may be more risk adverse. The fund is open-ended, and available to purchase through the Invictus Capital portal. Additionally, the use of margin-lending is designed to reduce fees.
FAQ can be found here.
Invictus Margin Lending Fund
The Invictus Margin Lending Fund offers investors the ability to take advantage of the volatile nature of the cryptocurrency market without risking direct exposure. The fund aims to maximize interest income on USD and USD equivalents with zero anticipated drawdown risk. Returns have a low or negative correlation to the S&P500, VIX, GLD and TNX — making for an excellent portfolio diversification tool. The fund targets compounded interest returns of 10 to 25% p/a net of fees on USD (and USD backed cryptocurrencies such as TUSD). This target should not be used as a prediction of performance. Investors will have access to daily performance reporting via the website and an API.
Emerging Markets Solar Fund
The Emerging Markets Solar Fund aims to earn healthy returns whilst contributing to global clean energy production. The Fund provides investors with an opportunity to raise living standards in emerging markets, provide access to modern energy services, reduce global reliance on fossil fuels and offset their carbon emissions. The Emerging Markets Solar (“EMS”) Fund has teamed up with a launch partner, the Sun Exchange, to initiate the Fund. The Sun Exchange is a US-domiciled company operating out of Cape Town, South Africa and is the world’s first global, peer-to-peer, solar-cell micro-leasing online marketplace. They have a strong presence in the African market and have an impressive track record to date. Check out the fund via the Litepaper linked below!
Invictus Gold Plus Fund
Gold has been favored and fought over by humans for thousands of years. With scarce supply and unwavering demand, the unmistakable precious metal has remained central to man’s concept of money and the preservation of wealth. Despite gold's initial sell-off in the wake of coronavirus fears, if history is to be a guide then the precious metal is poised for significant growth given the immense increase in money supply by global reserve banks (at this stage $2 trillion in the US alone) in an effort to buoy consumer demand. Invictus Capital presents our latest fund - the Invictus Gold Plus Fund - an open-ended fund that tracks the underlying gold price and earns an additional yield on your investment. The fund’s objective is to outperform gold as a long-term benchmark. The Fund will be held predominantly in gold-backed tokens, namely Tether Gold (XAUT) and PAX Gold (PAXG), with a small portion invested in our Margin Lending Fund (IML) for 24/7 liquidity purposes. The targeted outperformance will be accomplished by taking advantage of arbitrage opportunities and utilizing our proprietary software to margin lend the underlying tokens on platforms such as Bitfinex, expanding on the success and experience gained from operation of our IML fund. For reference, margin lending rates on Tether Gold haved spiked into the double digits in terms of annualized returns (25% APR as of 26/3/2020) due to the recent surge in trading activity.
Invictus Bitcoin Alpha Fund
Invictus Capital is proud to present our Bitcoin Alpha Fund (IBA), an open-ended fund that is always long on Bitcoin (BTC), and aims to outperform it by utilizing options and lending strategies to offer both downside protection and yield. The Fund will have long BTC exposure, and it will utilize OTM put options as a protective mechanism which allows BTC downside to be capped at a maximum of 10% of the US dollar value of the Fund per month. Significant Bitcoin gains are made during any period of drawdown exceeding 10%, and IBA has, historically, strongly outperformed its benchmark of BTC.
Bitcoin enjoys a first-mover advantage as well as substantial brand recognition, and it remains a popular investment choice for new market entrants. In historical terms Bitcoin has demonstrated low correlation to major asset classes such as equities, bonds and commodities. It can therefore offer superior risk-adjusted returns compared to more traditionally-oriented portfolios. A key aspect of Bitcoin is its scarcity and it can thus translate to a store of value for investors. With a current market capitalization of less than 5% of gold, there is significant room for Bitcoin to capture a larger share of global wealth. Bitcoin's property of scarcity can also serve as a bulwark against the inflationary pressures faced by fiat currencies and other risks associated with the traditional financial system. The IBA Fund offers the benefits of Bitcoin with reduced volatility - a concern which acts as a barrier to entry for many investors. In addition:
Perseus is a secure, end-to-end ICO raise platform. Perseus was developed by Invictus Capital to assist projects with their raise process in an efficient manner. Though often associated with the Hyperion Fund, any project can apply for this service.
Perseus offers front-end, back-end, business, legal, technical, as well as marketing services. Projects can customize according to their requirements.
On the front-end, Perseus provides a secure investment portal, including KYC/AML processes. This portal caters to different languages and currencies. Funds are received securely and stored cold, with user-specific information according to their investment history.
On the back-end, analytics and reconciliation reports are available. This is in addition to other administrative and wallet tools.
Business services can include assistance with exchange listings, advisors, community development, and ICO strategy. Perseus can also assist with roadmap and tokenomic planning.
In terms of legal services, this extends to the drafting of agreements (such as SAFTs) and the creation of contractual terms.
Technical services encompass the development and auditing of smart contracts, token issuance and security pen-testing.
On the marketing side of things, this relates to content creation and dissemination, community management, brand consulting, campaigning, as well as general strategy.
Perseus brings value to the blockchain ecosystem, and increases the chances of partner success. Please find FAQ regarding Perseus here.

Trader Hangout with CEO Mike Belshe of BitGo -- Live 4PM PST Weds

BitGo CEO Mike Belshe has agreed to do a hangout with the WhaleClub panel of long time bitcoin traders to talk about a variety of topics including multi-sig security in the wake of the BFX hack and their products, services and business model as a company. I welcome sourcing questions from the community to ask him on air and we will be creating a Google document beforehand of the questions so he has an idea of what we will be asking as well as outlining the structure of the Hangout.
Wednesday 4PM Pacific Standard Time (UTC -7:00) so 2300 UTC
Edit: I will adding some of the questions below as we work on the document
BitGo Hangout
Who are you? What is BitGo? Tell us about yourself and take us through the BitGo business model and what you offer to exchanges. (VIX)
BitGo Wallet Setups Take us through a standard implementation of BitGo (Kraken, Bitstamp, who else?) Are all of your clients using customizable setups? (BEL)
Under what circumstances are transactions normally allowed to be signed and processed? What protections are in place? (BEL)
Did your team allow BFX to choose an insecure configuration? Tell us specifically how Bitfinex's setup was customized compared to your other clients -- was this option only available to BFX, why? From the BitGo blog right after the hack “Fortunately, the Bitfinex configuration was unique and other BitGo customers do not need immediate changes.” (BEL)
Did BFX have any other special services provided by BitGo, like an Ethereum wallet solution?
Who is responsible?
Please comment on any of BFX's statements, choices, behaviors that you think might be currently misrepresented? For example, Giancarlo of BitFinex has stated explicitly that BitGo has responsibility in the matter -- Giancarlo stating that BitGo was responsible and didn’t function as expected: Audio Clip #1 what is the responsibility of BitGo in the matter -- Let’s go over what you have documented on both your website and blog (VIX)
Dynamic Fraud Filters “BitGo will not co-sign requests that appear to be fraudulent and will instead report an error to the user.” -- If you are selling security and fraud prevention how is that almost 120,000 BTC can be lost and not flagged as a fraudulent request? (Swapman)
According to Zane “we were never alerted to any fraudulent or apparently fraudulent transactions (to my knowledge we received an email stating a security setting had changed and that’s it). We had never withdrawn more than 2,500btc in 24hr, had never increased the daily global limit, nor had we ever used that API call. I just simply can’t understand how 119,756btc were cosigned under that context.”
Giancarlo talking about the unbreakable limit of 2,500 bitcoins that was changed to 1,000,000 2 months prior to the hack Audio Clip #2
This sets up clearly that Bitfinex claims they were never informed of these weaknesses in their setup with BitGo. Did BitGo inform bitfinex of these critical changes? (Swapman)
In your blog post after the hack, you said "Our job is to protect your Bitcoin". Do you think BitGo did that for Bitfinex users? “ BitGo systems were not breached in this attack and our software functioned correctly.” -- how could a company built on delivering a security service for bitcoin be functioning properly if this happened ? Even if Giancarlo and the BFX team are incompetent at using your software don’t you still have an obligation to make it idiot proof to meet your service obligation ? (VIX)
Did BitGo have a document that details the responsibilities and expectations of each party involved in the fraud prevention/segregation of wallets/transaction-signing? (Widespread)
The Hack Is BitGo cooperating with any legal authorities investigating the hack? Which? (BEL)
What was learned from the BFX hack? (BEL) Blog post:
Why weren’t these features sufficiently provided sufficiently in Bitfinex’s setup?
Customer Wallet Review: We conducted a review of all our customers’ wallets and made recommendations to each customer about how their wallet security could be improved through the use of policies, wallet architecture, and basic practices for handling access tokens and credentials in a multi-user environment. Immutable Policies: BitGo policies are controlled by the customer and can be protected by multiple, independent people. To enact a policy change, one person proposes the change, one or more people approve the change (with 2-factor authentication), and finally everyone gets notified that the change is complete via SMS and email. With the new immutable policy feature, once policies have been unchanged for some time, we automatically lock the policy in an immutable state. Changes to the policy cannot be made via API, and may only be unlocked by BitGo Operations Personnel after a manual, out-of-band identification and authentication process. The process includes several safeguards such as a video call with pre-verified persons designated by the company in advance. Mandatory Multiple Approvers: Multiple approvers for policy overrides has always been a core function of the BitGo platform. We have tightened the multiple user policy for several customers to require at least three users to take an administrative action.
Customer Protections
What happened with all of the insurance features and other claims and terms that were not provided to Bfx customers and/or were edited after the hack happened?
Bitgo deleted its post about insurance immediately after the hack -- then re-added it with an edit that insurance expired back in January and all parties were notified. How/when were Bitfinex customers notified of the limitations and special terms of their BitGo wallets? At the very least this looks really bad
–]tokenlyfreelance (Adam Levine, LTB) on Reddit said: “I actually reached out to Ben Davenport (a BitGo primary) about exactly the insurance issue immediately after the hack became public. He directed me to a communications person who has not yet responded to my questions.
It's very interesting the page was taken down, probably because other people and myself were quoting from it directly since it seems pretty clear they at least represented this type of incident as being covered.”
How can a customer be confident BitGo configurations are customized properly, or which scope of terms and insurances will actually apply to them in the event of a crisis?
BitGo’s Future & Viability
Do you think BitGo, as a centralized platform, might represent a systemic risk that increases with your "success"? For example, when the BitGo API goes down, and none of your partner exchanges can process bitcoins, like happened last year? How is adding BitGo a net gain in security for their customers? (BEL)
What skin does BitGo have in the game that someone should trust you as 3rd party? It seems you are responsible for securing exponentially more value than the company itself represents. Giancarlo said he will have a hard time ever trusting another 3rd party: Audio Clip #3 (VIX)
What can BitGo do to transcend being the security company that oversaw the loss of 120,000 bitcoins?
How can BitGo become profitable and justifiable as a security solution?
Do you anticipate a legal battle between BitGo and Bitfinex?
Phil states that BitGo doesn’t have any money to sue for: Audio Clip #4 (VIX)

Bitcoin Price May Be 'Fear Gauge' for Stock Market: VIX Analyst BTC price is notoriously volatile, but a surprising pattern has emerged from that volatility which may have wider ramifications for the traditional finance markets as a whole.
Daily Performances
General Comment: The broad market has been stable, with total market cap maintaining USD330 billion and in continued light volumes of USD16 billion in the last 24 hours. Other parameters such as low volatility and high correlation also remain unchanged indicating a lack of directional conviction. The consolidation phase would probably continue for a while as the markets are still recovering from the side effects of market euphoria earlier in the year. However, external catalysts could be the next drivers. Some people are beginning to talk about crypto currencies as a gauge of fear in traditional markets. If another sovereign crisis comes back into the fore front and global contagion spreads, it would be interesting to see how well crypto assets perform as "Proof of Safety".
Technical Analysis - BTC
BTC/USD is still trading inside a downward sloped triangle, but has successfully defended the psychological USD7000 support level for now. If the lows hold, we expect to see a retest of the upper bound and a strong bull move if it breaks this band, which right now stands at around 9.5k. If it breaks downwards we would expect the price to fall significantly to the 4-5k level. Based on the stage of the triangle we would expect a resolution up or down soon and higher volatility as a result.

Yesterday the market was pushed lower on what appears to be a large seller in ETH, driving prices down to almost USD500 and the ETH/BTC spread close to 0.07.

Daily Performance

Market 28-05-2018

Over the weekend, more directionless trading in very light volumes. Total market cap is at USD325 billion, with 24 hour turnover a very light USD13 billion. Volatility continues to drop in BTC to levels not seen for almost a year (implied vols mid-70s, short-term realised mid-50s) and the same can be seen in most other asset classes such as stocks, currencies and commodities except for crude oil, which saw a sharp drop in Asian hours after Saudi Arabia and Russian proposed easing of output curbs. Market consolidation continues, but extremely low volumes and volatilities make the entire market susceptible to external shocks.
