Livecoin statement

Bitconnect closed on January 16 its lending and exchange platform, providing three main reasons for the halt of lending and exchange platform: the continuous bad press that created a lack of confidence in the platform, two Cease and Desist orders from Texas and North Carolina and DDos attacks on the platform.

In December, Ethereum founder Vitalik Buterin and Litecoin founder Charlie Lee, have spoken up against Bitconnect, calling it a Ponzi scheme.

Meanwhile, BitConnect continues to raise funds to finance its ICO BitconnectX, promoted by an army of promoters in Indonesia and Asia.

The largest US cryptocurrency company Coinbase announced the expansion of partnership with a London startup WeGift.

Using the Coinbase wallet, American users can buy gift certificates from dozens of retailers, including Uber, Nike and Gap.

To do this, users need to visit the website of the WeGift service and associate it with the Coinbase wallet. As a bonus, when purchasing gift certificates, users do not have to pay a withdrawal fee.

Earlier, this opportunity from Coinbase and WeGift was available only in a few EU countries.
