SHIBA Inu coin is up on Coinbase on Tuesday, as is Bitcoin after Square CEO Jack Dorsey revealed the company is looking to get into crypto mining with that currency.

“Square is considering building a bitcoin mining system based on custom silicon and open source for individuals and businesses worldwide,” CEO Dorsey said in a tweet on Friday.

“If we do this, we’d follow our hardware wallet model: build in the open in collaboration with the community.”

Bitcoin’s price hit a six-month-high of $62,000 after the tweet, Business Insider reported.

Both Bitcoin and Shiba Inu remain up on Tuesday, according to Coinbase.

Plus, crypto prices saw some changes after President Biden’s statement drawing attention to potential pitfalls of the currency, such as ransomware and other cyber threats.

The statement from Joe Biden read: “Cyber threats can affect every American, every business regardless of size, and every community. That’s why my administration is marshaling a whole-of-nation effort to confront cyber threats.”

  • EXPERT COMMENTS ON TETHER’S VALUE

    Despite its claim to be a stablecoin, Tether has still witnessed spikes and sharp falls in price, Susannah Streeter, senior investment and markets analyst at Hargreaves Lansdown, noted in May.

    She told The Sun: “It has also been criticised for a lack of transparency, has had to settle US lawsuits and trading in the currency is banned in the state of New York.”

  • WHAT IS TETHER?

    The Tether cryptocurrency, which is also known as USDT, was officially launched as Realcoin in 2014, but has since changed its name.

    It’s described as a “stablecoin”, which is a type of cryptocurrency that aims to keep crypto values stable.

    Tether aims to do this by pegging the price to a regular “fiat” currency, like US dollars, Euros or the Chinese yuan.

    Tether claims to keep values steady by holding reserves in that currency in a bank.

  • PUSH FOR MEXICO TO FOLLOW EL SALVADOR

    In early October, Grupo Elektra, a leading banking and retail company in Mexico, threw its support behind Bitcoin by introducing the Bitcoin Lightning Network as a payment method.

    But Mexico’s central bank quickly shot down the plans, warning: “The country’s financial institutions are not authorized to carry out and offer to the public operations with virtual assets, such as Bitcoin, Ether, XRP.”

    Many of the country’s lawmakers remain opposed to Bitcoin, despite grappling with high inflation rates due to the continued devaluation of its currency.

  • SCANT REGULATIONS

    In other words, don’t invest more than you can afford to lose or into something you don’t understand.

    Cryptocurrencies are also especially volatile, and their values can make large swings at no notice.

    There’s scant regulation for crypto firms, so you’ll find yourself without protection if and when things go wrong.

  • VOLATILE PRICES AND DEMAND

    Myron Jobson, personal finance campaigner of Interactive Investor, told The Sun: “It is difficult to predict the price of a something that has an intrinsic value of zero.”

    “All it takes is a tweet from high-profile individuals who have significant influence on sentiment to cryptos to drive up demand.”

    “But greater regulatory scrutiny on cryptos threatens to hamper the growth potential of the Shiba Inu.”

  • RISKS OF INVESTING IN CRYPTOS, PART FIVE

    A third risk of investing in cryptocurrencies is product complexity.

    Converting a cryptoasset back to cash depends on demand and supply existing in the market.

  • RISKS OF INVESTING IN CRYPTOS, PART TWO

    Another risk of investing is price volatility.

    Significant price volatility in cryptoassets, combined with the inherent difficulties of valuing cryptoassets reliably, places consumers at a high risk of losses.

  • RISKS OF ROBINHOOD, PART TWO

    For investing individual stocks, make sure you check company reports, Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) filings, broker notes, and press releases so you can make the best decisions for your money.

    In fact, Robinhood faced some outrage earlier this year when it restricted trading on meme stocks including GameStop and AMC.

  • RISKS OF ROBINHOOD

    When it comes to risks, investing alone is one because you’re not guaranteed to generate a profit and the value of your assets could fall.

    If you’re choosing Robinhood so you can trade stocks and cryptocurrencies – then the game gets even riskier.

    Cryptocurrencies are not only difficult to understand but even tougher to predict when bearish trends in the market will take place.

    For example, cryptocurrency was thriving this year up until Elon Musk said that Tesla was halting the acceptance of payments in Bitcoin.

    Since then, the crypto spaced has endured volatility.

  • WHAT IS ROBINHOOD? CONTINUED
