BitMEX Research FUD

BitMEX Research FUD

BitMEX’s Research team recently discovered and brought to attention a double-spending attempt on the Bitcoin blockchain, and the result was widespread FUD across the cryptocurrency market.

Whilst alarming indeed if it had succeeded, the blocks’ confirmation can be easily verified using the associated URL. It is quickly apparent that only one transaction request was confirmed.

This has been a thinly-veiled attempt at spreading Fear, Uncertainty, and Doubt amongst the particularly newly invested crypto participants.

Situations like this happen often as multiple stale, or orphaned blocks are abandoned when conflicting blocks are discovered. It is a fairly common occurrence.


Bitcoin utilizes multiple confirmations for each transaction to ensure that the block is properly verified across the vast majority of exchanges and wallets. BitMex uses a one-block confirmation method which assumes that transactions based on the first block confirmation are final, which is not entirely 100% accurate as blocks can be re-organized as further confirmations happen.


This intentional misdirection is absolutely being used for nefarious means as it only takes minimal efforts to verify that the alleged double-spend did not happen, and was not confirmed within the block using

It would be wise to take everything BitMEX Research presents with a healthy dose of salt, and cross-reference the evidence. BitMEX executives have been charged with operating in the United States illegally.

New Daily Post Format

Decentralized Finance (DeFi)


Since 2017, the cryptocurrency market has been evolving and building upon itself. From ICOs, to DAOs, and now DeFi.

DeFi, short for Decentralized Finance, utilizes open-source software and decentralized networks to apply trustless and transparent protocols to traditional financial products, automating them without unnecessary intermediaries. This would allow for anyone with internet access global, open alternatives to every financial service available today, from savings, loans, trading, insurance, and etc.

As of now, DeFi is one of the fastest-growing sectors in crypto; the growth of which is measured with a new metric, “ETH locked in DeFi”.

Weekly highlights will now go live on Fridays, and will also include the DeFi projects of the week.

SynQ UP v2020

Welcome to SynQ UP in 2020!

During the down-market the team at SynQ has been working to bring the crypto-community a feature-rich, dedicated experience, created explicitly for learning about everything crypto, sharing everything about crypto, and earning actually valuable crypto.

SynQ UP Profiles

Crypto-Twitter is great, however… wouldn’t it be nice if tweets showed up in chronological order and you saw every tweet from everyone you followed? We thought so. SynQ UP Profiles is a chronological, feature-expanded, Twitter-like, timeline experience that adds the ability for you to lock high-value posts behind your own subscription paywall to earn Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin.

  • Write posts for your timeline and share them directly to a SynQ UP Group
  • Reply in a dedicated, threaded conversation interface
  • Add custom-emoji reactions
  • Receive user-tips (KlinQ) in Bitcoin, Litecoin, and Ethereum
  • Enable “Premium Posts” to show high-value content to your subscribers
  • Edit posts after they’ve been published
  • Large format TradingView chart integration


Yes, we added a native cryptocurrency wallet, directly integrated with Coinbase, and every user has a SynQ WALLET automatically. Deposit funds from anywhere and withdrawal funds at any time with the dead-simple interface on your desktop, your phone, your tablet… anywhere.

Currently Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Litecoin are supported, and we’ll be expanding this as things progress. Rather than creating an ERC20 cryptocurrency of our own, we chose to give our community the power of actually valuable, high-liquidity, proven, long-standing assets, free from all the elevated risk and speculation of 1UP, STEEM, or any of those other off-brand random coins that no one really needs or values.

  • Deposit funds via address or QR code
  • Withdrawal funds to any compatible wallet, any time
  • Powered by Coinbase
  • You control the WALLET completely
  • View all your transactions, anytime

Presenting our Brand New Podcast – “Know Your Crypto” (KYC)

For many of you who have been following the SynQ IO team for a while, you know we are not afraid of change. We understand change is good for not only ourselves, but also for the crypto industry that we make our living in. After almost 18 full months of the “Haruspex Live”, we have decided that it is now time to change how we approach AMAs and podcasts.

Starting today, Wednesday October 9, 2019, we are officially rebranding the “Haruspex Live” to Know Your Crypto. The Know Your Crypto podcast will still be similar to what you’ve seen over the past year and half, but we are keeping what works and getting rid of what doesn’t. This means we will be focusing on guests for almost every single episode. We already have an all star cast lined up, from founders to fund managers to builders to traders and everything in between. In addition to guests, you can expect similar market research topics and market updates, but we want to make it more content driven instead of trading driven. We hope our audience will appreciate the mix of content, ideas, and guests.

For those who love our trading analysis, you need not fret. We will still lightly touch on these topics during the Know Your Crypto podcast, but to make sure we still please all of our audience we will be releasing trading videos and market updates at least twice a week from here on out. You can expect Dave and/or Nick to give you an update on trends we see for the top cryptocurrencies, what SynQ is saying about the markets, and other helpful informational tidbits like where market makers have buys/sells set and volume information.

Finally, we want to extend a huge THANK YOU to everyone who has followed us from the CryptoSyndicate days to the current SynQ IO days. You are the reason we love to share content, ideas, and thoughts in the market. We hope you enjoy the new podcast, and if you ever have feedback or suggestion for a topic or guest please email us at!

You can catch the live Know Your Crypto show on our Facebook, Youtube, and Twitter!

Adding Projection History and Accuracy Status to SynQ

SynQ’s accuracy is over 75% accurate, on average, for all of the projections we’ve published. To back this claim up, we figured we needed to be more transparent in supplying data for our projections. After extensive feedback from our users, we have decided to be even more transparent with how we report our accuracies and historical data.

We’d like to present to you our newest creations: Projection History and Accuracy Status. These data feeds will be featured on each coin’s “Coin Detail Page” right after the Social Influence data feed.

(BTC Projection History and Accuracy Status)

Projection History

(BTC Projection History – Sept 17, 2019)

This chart displays all of a coin’s published projections going back for a full 7 days, and will be updated each day at 12am UTC-0. The goal of this is to increase transparency into published projections so that users can feel more comfortable using SynQ and back track a coin’s accuracy over a 7 day period

Accuracy Status

(BTC Accuracy Status – Sept 17, 2019)

This gauge shows the average 7 day accuracy of a specific coin. This gauge is a summary of all of the projections featured in Projection History and updates every day at 12am UTC-O.

Goals and Next Steps

As always, our goal is to provide better transparency for our consumers and the market. We want users to feel comfortable with and trust SynQ. This the first step in that process.

Soon, we will be featuring weekly data dumps and overall accuracy across SynQ on our homepage at Featuring this much data will allow everyone to see just how powerful SynQ is week over week.

Keep a lookout on our blog and our website for more updates!

Introducing SynQ I/O

The team at SynQ has been dedicated to market analysis from not only the fundamental and technical side, but also the business intelligence side of the cryptocurrency universe.

Welcome to SynQ I/O, the official rebirth of the now defunct CryptoSyndicate group. While CryptoSyndicate was a well-regarded report publication business, SynQ has allowed us to focus on knowledge sharing at scale, focusing on quality projects, and cryptocurrency forecasting created from consumer trend analysis and the attention economy.  To be honest, this is something we never planned on being our “full time jobs”, rather it was fun, new, interesting and what we enjoyed.

As David Bowie once said, “Turn and face the strange”. With SynQ I/O, we are turning a way from a part-time busness to a full fledged company with more focus on content creation and sharing of our knowledge the entire crypto/blockchain markets.  SynQ I/O will be publishing more video content, including HARUSPEX episodes weekly to Facebook, YouTube, and Periscope. Daily market overviews to Instagram, Facebook and Twitter, as well as a revitalized SynQ UP community are all here, available for free, to all interested to come learn and discuss the happenings of Bitcoin, Ethereum, Ripple, and all other projects.

Our first series, Corruption Crypto and Cartels will be published soon, in series, to the official SynQ I/O blog, and will be syndicated accordingly to Facebook. Be on the look out for opinion pieces, fundamental analysis breakdowns, consumer interest reports, consumer adoption metrics, infographics and more from all of us at the SynQ I/O team.

Thank you all for being part of our journey thus far, and we look forward to bringing even more success to everyone.
