It is also important to track these announcements to know who is eligible to collect the dividend, when it will be approved and when it will be paid. Dividend payment also affects share prices.

Bitcoin robbers are cashing in as they transfer $7 million worth of BTCs

The biggest loot of the four transactions was 308.43BTC (3,491,285 USD).



BTC robbers seem to be having a field day in recent times. Barely four years after some BTC robbers stole 119,756 Bitcoins from crypto exchange Bitfinex in 2016, the robbers have moved $7 million worth of BTCs to unknown wallets. This happened just some hours ago.

According to a series of tweets, yesterday, by the advanced crypto tracker Whale Alert, wallets linked to Bitfinex’s 2016 security breach have moved 620 Bitcoins (BTC) — worth roughly $7 million at the time of writing — in over 4 transactions.


The biggest loot of the four transactions was 308.43 BTC (3,491,285 USD) of stolen funds transferred from Bitfinex hack in 2016 to an unknown wallet.

Recall about a week ago, Narametrics broke the news on how BTC thieves in less than 48 hours stole 3503 BTC worth $38.5 million. This is more than the 119 756 BTC stolen in 2016.

Back story: In 2016, a top official at Bitfinex, in a statement credited to Reuters, disclosed that 119,756 Bitcoins were stolen from users’ accounts. To date, the BTC robbers responsible for these heists have only been able to move only 1-2% of the funds from the exchange.

The world’s flagship currency is trading above the strong resistance level above  $11,200 with a market capitalization of about $208 billion.

How easy is tracking BTCs? It should be noted that Bitcoin is not really anonymous because all BTC transactions are kept permanently and publicly on the blockchain or ledger system, so it’s very easy for anyone to see the transactions and balances of any BTC address.

What this means: Blockchain security and security agencies have flagged the BTC wallets containing the stolen BTCs, making it very difficult to move the 119,756 BTC without being noticed.

Crude oil prices fall due to fresh wave of COVID-19 caseloads

Brent crude is expected to stay below the $45 resistance levels in the coming days.



global oil market, Bonny Light and Brent crude oil, Arthur Eze, Nigeria cuts crude oil production to 1.77mbpd, Nigeria wants international oil companies to pay up now , OPEC+ deal gets a boost as Russia and Saudi Arabia consider further output cut, 4 key reasons why Brent crude might slip back to $35 per barrel, How substantial is compliance for the Oil market?

Crude oil prices dropped on Tuesday morning at London’s trading session. The price drop is due to concerns from oil traders that energy demand is plunging as a fresh wave of COVID-19 caseloads around the world ignite another wave of lockdowns. Moreover, OPEC+ has begun to relax its crude oil production cuts.

West Texas Intermediate dropped 0.73% to $40.71 a barrel as of 05.23 GMT, while Brent crude futures lost 0.77% to grade at $43.81 a barrel.


The fall in these international crude oil benchmarks is happening despite better-than-expected data on manufacturing activity in Asia, Europe, and the United States. Reports yesterday indicated that industries are emerging from the worst of the early COVID-19 pandemic impact.

Insight: In his usual notes to Nairametrics, Stephen Innes, the Chief Global Market Strategist at AxiCorp, explained why crude oil prices are expected to trend downward despite positive economic macros recorded recently from emerged markets. He said:

GTBank 728 x 90

“The improving macro data likely pared a few weaker shorts overnight. I think it is fair to say that most oil market participants expected more downward pressure on oil to start the week with Covid-19 ravaging the landscape and OPEC + adding more barrels into play.

“The theme remains the same, however, with prices hovering around the $44/barrel level this morning as demand recovers from 2Q lows but stammers from fully recovering because of the continued impact of Covid-19 on oil demand.”

Outlook for Brent Crude: While it remains unclear where crude oil prices might be heading to in the short term, the worst-case scenarios similar to the lows recorded in April 2020 have been ruled out. However, the skies are not blue yet for crude oil traders. Brent crude is expected to stay below the $45 resistance levels in the coming days.
