Everybody Wants Your Cryptocurrencies — VAULT Cryptocurrency Blockchain News #19
On 10 August, just over $600m in cryptocurrency assets were stolen from Poly Network, a system that allows users to transfer digital tokens from one blockchain to another. This started a unique set of events that made it one of the craziest weeks in crypto.
In an interesting twist, the Poly Network team wrote a letter to the hacker and urged him to return the funds.
This highlights something about cryptocurrencies and the difficulty involved in sneaking off with $610 million dollars. People can track the funds. They know where the funds went and if they are being moved.
The hacker then responded with a bizarre “Q&A”
Then the hacker said he is a white hat hacker and was merely pointing out vulnerabilities in the network. The Poly Network team then offers the hacker a reward of $500,000. The funds are then returned to the Poly Network except for $33 million in USDT.
There is $235 million locked in an account that requires passwords from the Poly Network and the hacker to be released. These funds are to be released “when everyone is ready.”
This whole story points out many vulnerabilities in crypto. As long as something has value, somebody will try to steal it. Protect your crypto and watch out for all the hackers and scammers out there. EVERYBODY WANTS YOUR CRYPTO!

Bitcoin (BTC) Update
Who do you listen to or trust for current information on what cryptocurrencies to invest your money in? There is a growing number of YouTubers, and a recent list of the top cryptocurrency YouTubers includes the following:
Another very popular personality is a fellow that goes by Boxmining.
Join me on this crazy cryptocurrency adventure! In this channel, we'll discuss cryptocurrencies (e.g. Bitcoin…
With over 250K subscribers, he has quite a bit of influence over people and their decisions on what cryptocurrency projects are beneficial and potentially profitable. This week he announced that a large portion of funds he was yield farming with may have been stolen in the Poly Network hack I mentioned in the intro.
I bring this up to warn you to be careful of whom you listen to in the world of cryptocurrency. People who tout themselves as experts and “in the know” frequently have done less research than you have. Don’t think that just because a guy has over 100K subscribers that he is any better at picking cryptocurrencies than you are.
Many of these guys make their money by referring you to big exchanges and option trading platforms. When you click on their referral links they get a kick back from the exchange in the form of referral bonuses. Many times, they also get a percentage off of every trade you make on that platform if you signed up under their referral link. Lets take a look a a couple of these guys to demonstrate my point.
Let’s look at the biggest first. The current top dog in terms of subscribers is BitBoy Crypto.
BitBoy Crypto is the place where you can get the latest crypto news, project reviews, and cryptocurrency trading…
With 1.17 million subscribers, you might think he wouldn’t need to shill referral links to big exchanges and trading platforms. If you click on his links, you find he has a ton of options.
These influencers make money when you trade cryptocurrencies. The exchanges make money when you trade These guys want you to support their YouTube channels and trade cryptocurrencies.
Let’s come back to reality shall we. What percentage of people who are trading cryptocurrencies are making a profit?
When investing in cryptocurrencies, my best advice is do not trade, or at least don’t day or leverage trade, unless you really know what you’re doing! If you trade, eventually you are going to get wiped out. Much like playing blackjack at the casino, if you play long enough, eventually the house will win.
So what is one of the best way to make money in crypto? Choose a crypto that will pay you interest and take advantage of the power of compound interest. You must make sure that the crypto you choose has value and will not dump in price. The power of VAULT is that it is tied to Bitcoin. Take this month for example. Bitcoin is up 42.6%. You can deposit any quantity of VAULT coins to VAULT shared masternode hosting platform to earn ~26% ROI, with a [Minimum Guaranteed Price https://vaultility.vault.investments/ ] in BTC on exchanges.
If you look at this closely and add up all the percentages, by investing in VAULT, you have the potential to see an 88.6% return on each VAULT coin you buy! You would have to be a all-star trader to do that good. Not many cryptocurrencies available today offer you that kind of return.

VAULT Crypto Portfolio Tracker
I wanted to give you a running tally of what you could potentially be earning with VAULT. The example I’m using is holding 1 CRYO VAULT masternode (CRYO VAULT available here) with 0.1 BTC invested in the BTC% program (check it out here).
I wanted to show you what kind of returns you could be earning weekly and cumulatively.
One VAULT masternode of 1,000 VAULT with current ~26% ROI generated 4.98 VAULT blockchain rewards this week for a total of 104.26 VAULT over the past 20 weeks. Total is now 1,104.26 VAULT. The total dollar value earned was $512.96 at VAULT’s current price of $4.92. The total BTC value at VAULT’s current price (0.00010501 BTC) is 0.010948.
Investing 0.1 BTC in the BTC% program earns you 11% APR, giving you a weekly return of 0.00021089 BTC. Over the last 20 weeks, this would be worth 0.0042178 BTC or $197.52.
