As a result, many users are looking forward to the ethereal nature of Ethereum.

Ethereum chart analysis and trends

Let’s look at the price changes so far while looking at the Ethereum chart.

However, due to the continuous flow of negative news such as restrictions on encryption assets and damage to hacking, the price of Ethereum has dropped significantly to the $90 level between January and December 2018.

After reaching a bottom in December 2018, Ethereum’s price has been recovering upwards until April 2019, and if the long-term downtrend has ended, then the long-term upturn there is also the possibility of becoming a trend. It can also be said that the price of Ethereum is relatively low.

CoinCheck launches OCT with Ethereum and Ripple

On 15th April, the domestic exchange coin check started to start OTC trading of crypto asset Ethereum and Ripple (XRP). OCT trading means that buyers and sellers of individuals and companies do direct trading of encrypted assets without having to go through an exchange.
There is usually a cap on trading volume, but there is no trading volume cap on OCT trading, so institutional investors prefer it. In addition, overseas, the OCT trading volume has increased and the impact on the cryptographic asset market has also been attracting attention. OTC trading is possible on weekdays from 10:00 to 15:00 on the coin check website.

The private key of the wallet is abused and funds are drained

On April 23, 2019, the US security consulting firm ISE (Independent Security Evaluators) said on the official site that “the funds have been stolen illegally due to duplicates in Ethereum’s private key” https://www.securityevaluators.com/casestudies/ethercombing

We have announced in the report. According to the survey, it has been said that the amount of outflow until now has climbed to about 44,000 ETH, and the duplicate secret key is generated if specific conditions are met.
Under the condition that “the same secret key is generated practically is hard to think”, under what conditions was the secret key duplicated? The factors causing duplication of the secret key announced by ISE this time are as follows.
・ Entropy error
・ Code logic error
・ Error of random device
・ Type confusion
・Memory corruption
・ Memory reference error
・Malware infringement
・ Reuse of seeds
These attacks are caused by a group called blockchain bandit targeting vulnerabilities in Ethereum’s source code. It is also possible that other cryptographic assets may be leaked in the same way while conducting research.
