Quote
These servers were assembled for Elemental by Super Micro Computer Inc., a San Jose-based company (commonly known as Supermicro) that’s also one of the world’s biggest suppliers of server motherboards

No single evidence of those claims been presented though. #justsaying

I haven't done any research into this but here is more.

https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2018-10-09/new-evidence-of-hacked-supermicro-hardware-found-in-u-s-telecom

I'm not sure what is going on ATM. Something weird is afoot.

https://www.servethehome.com/yossi-appleboum-disagrees-bloomberg-is-positioning-his-research-against-supermicro/

Quote
citing Yossi Appleboum CEO of Sepio Systems. Here is that story. I reached out to Mr. Appleboum for comment via telephone. Whereas the Bloomberg story singles out Supermicro servers, Mr. Appleboum’s sentiment is that this is an industrywide issue. Other very large server and networking manufacturers are certainly impacted, perhaps more so. He also stated that as an industry, or a society, we have two options: we go with the narrative that a US company, Supermicro, is the only one impacted as the Bloomberg reporting suggests, or we recognize that this is a persistent threat that impacts the entire hardware supply chain


FUD.

He is talking about a well known POTENTIAL attack vector. Still no evidence of the specific claims which, btw, don't make many sense:

1- Bloomberg initially pointed to supermicro servers and, specifically, a small microchip embedded into the board. Where is that microchip? Where is the research? Anything?
2- Then Appleboum says Bloomberg misquoted him because he never said anything specific (ie, Supermicro) but that it is a widespread problem.Well, again, where are their forensic evidence? Anything?
3- The description of the embedded chip doesn't make any sense. Of course, that is unsurprising when it comes to MSM but.... in this case it is not possible to check the facts from the technical sources because.... where is it? Anything?
4- I would certainly be greatly interested in knowing more about that spectacular microchip the size of a tiny SMC capacitor that features integrated cpu, ram, etc and is able to work and process at baseband frequencies. THAT is the evidence I would like to see, no matter if it has been used on a large scale attack or not.

Even though there is not evidence of this case, as I said it is a well known possible attack vector (usually by replacement in-situ or in the last stages on the supply chain not at manufacturing) and there are many countermeasures that are security best practices since many years: Isolated networks/segmentation, Data leak detection/prevention, etc....

It is way easier to implement this attacks by firmware modification though... Anyway, not going to completely shit over what they are saying because it is theoretical posible but until no specific evidence is shown I tag it as (plausible) FUD.

Even the stock hardware is full of secrets and holes, watch this video.....

Bitcoin mining is now a specialized and very risky industry, just like gold mining. Amateur miners are unlikely to make much money, and may even lose money. Bitcoin is much more than just mining, though!

So basically a whale or company that did not want to take the risk is pulling their money out of BFX the only way they can...through BTC.

Now that same risk adverse whale or company will want to convert back to their precious safe fiat currency on another exchange. Sure they lose money but have less risk. Which also drives the price down on that other exchange.

Conservative stops costed me about 10% profit, but they avoided me a squeeze. Although non fatal, it's still bad for my mood. Short now promptly reconstructed at a higher (better) entry point than it was before.

TL;DR In other words: Volatility isn't inherently bad. Neither is cautious leveraged margin use.

Is this the coin you are taking about?
https://coinmarketcap.com/currencies/usd-coin/

Assuming it is, then maybe Kucoin has their own vested intenrest in feeding the tether fud.   I just have a hunch that wllet mantance is the best they can do without risking some kind of legal challenge.  All of a sudden that stable coin USDC is worth 1.06 while tether is down to 0.96.

I haven't done enough resaerch to be sure, but how many times have we had the tether line spun?  lets be honest it always drops in a bull run.
