Singapore-based CoinBene was launched in 2018 but quickly managed to secure a top spot among the bitcoin exchanges with the highest BTC trading volumes. The exchange offers over 170 investable digital assets, which makes it popular among investors who want to trade a wide range of coins and tokens.

Xia said that the exchange would use its own funding “to cover the incident” and compensate affected users.

“We are also talking to multiple project teams to confirm the most reasonable solutions such as token swaps. No user assets will be harmed,” said Xia.

All withdrawals have been suspended by BitMart while the exchange completes a security review.

The CEO went on to ask for users’ kind understanding while BitMart works to retrieve security setups and return to normal operation.

“In terms of asset deposit and withdrawals, we are confident that deposit and withdrawal functions will gradually begin on December 7, 2021,” Xia said yesterday.

The CEO is scheduled to share more information regarding the security breach at 8pm EST Monday in an Ask Me Anything session on Telegram.

Yesterday, prominent macro-economist and crypto analyst/trader Alex Krüger talked about the markets’ reaction to Powell’s comments following the conclusion of the FOMC meeting:

The market throwing a Powell tantrum since yesterday’s close, as the Fed

– did not deliver details on its framework review

– did not ease any further

– upgraded the economic outlook

Ironically, this seemingly was the consensus for the FOMC – market participants disagreed.

a) triggers, or

Going on stages or panels and putting out dates is not helpful at all. I don’t think Vitalik said July. But I didn’t see the talk.

This last comment by Schoedon prompted Buterin to reply, saying that he had misheard the interviewer’s question:

Yeah I did not say July. Perhaps the question contained the word July but I did not hear July when it was asked.

— vitalik.eth (@VitalikButerin) May 12, 2020

OK I definitely should have heard July in the question, it was my mistake.

Later that day, Buterin offered the following clarification to Coindesk:

Rolling correlations between $BTC and the S&P 500 remain around historical highs.

However, it appears that Bitcoin’s pre-Halving rally — which started around May 1 (when Bitcoin was trading around and took Bitcoin’s price all the way to around $10,013 on May 8) — has helped Bitcoin to manage a decoupling from the S&P 500.

This decoupling has certainly become more noticeable in the past two days which has seen the S&P 500 drop 4.06 whilst Bitcoin has gone up 13.03%.

BitMEX Co-Founder and CEO Arthur Hayes is one of those delighted by Bitcoin’s price action, and he is expecting Bitcoin to get back above the $10K level soon:

Stonks be rolling over, #bitcoin be mooning. SPX double bear market rally top at the 62% retracement, rut roh.
