There are a lot of news every day regarding the cryptocurrency regulations, but Twitter blocking the accounts of major cryptocurrecnies is something new. Twitter was always blocking fake accounts, or the ones impersonating famous figures and those which were trying to steal money from other users by posting fake challenges and airdrops. But on April 8, Twitter has suspended @Bitcoin account, which was supposedly violating Twitter Rules.

Ther opinions of the community towards the news of @Bitcoin account suspension were divided, as some of the users thought that it is good news as the account was for years and years "basically a price bot". Others were unsatisfied stating that Twitter banned @Bitcoin account, but did not bother to suspend thousands of other fraudulent and fake accounts, which certainly violate the Twitter Rules.

Currently the @Bitcoin account name is taken by a new user with around 1600 followers, supposedly not related to cryptocurrency, and the account is private, so there is no possibility to view the tweets.

The security tokens platform tZERO announced plans to launch a mobile application for buying and selling bitcoin. In the future, the application may also begin to support Ethereum,  CoinDesk reports.

According to Saum Noursalehi, CEO of tZERO, applications for iOS and Android devices should be launched in June. Bitsy is developing it, a cryptocurrency start-up that is part of the portfolio of the Overstock venture division of Medici Ventures.

That’s part of the reason we acquired Bitsy — to accelerate time to market for our mobile app. They have an app for trading crypto, primarily bitcoin, in a beta-phase, they built a wallet and key recovery mechanism, and this will be the foundation of the mobile app for tZERO. They are also working on some cool stuff like biometric login.

According to him, the application will allow you to store cryptocurrency without the need to trust third parties and it will be connected to the network of exchanges through the API. The implementation of this plan will occur through partner tZERO, the institutional trading platform SFox.

In the future, the head of tZERO added, the platform also intends to create its own cryptocurrency vault to meet the demand from users.

The public beta testing of Bitsy wallet started in November 2018. With his help, the Overstock retailer plans to launch Bitcoin sales on its website.
