Crypto Industry News:
The Malta Financial Services Authority (MFSA) warns the public that the entity named “Bitcoin Future” appears to exhibit “the same deceptive features” as a separate fraud called “Bitcoin Revolution”, for which two public warnings have already been issued this year.
The statement noted that such fraudulent operations seem to constantly appear on the Internet as advertisements, changing their names to avoid detection. Deceptive ads distribute false passwords, such as “A Way to Build a Better Life” and “A Unique Opportunity for Maltese People,” notes MSFA, pointing readers to specific URLs where these fake ads currently appear. The supervisor characterizes the culture and strategies of these exploits, noting that:
“Bitcoin Future promotes itself through fake press articles that use images of local personalities and images of local government institutions. Fake articles are advertised on various social media platforms and falsely claim to be associated with these people.”
As part of the correction, MSFA explains that Bitcoin Future is not a company registered in Malta, is not authorized to provide financial services to or from the country and is not an entity operating – as it claims – under transitional provisions within the meaning of Art. 62 of the Malta Act on Virtual Financial Assets.
In summary, the regulator claims that Bitcoin Future appears to be an international “get rich quick” scam and asks the public not to engage in business or transactions with the entity in any of the forms it specifies.
The notification includes a link to the official list of financial service providers that are currently licensed by MFSA, as well as guidelines for detecting fraud and a contact point for fraud warnings and victims.

All the shorter timeframe moves are still being treated as a counter-trend correction inside of the uptrend. When the wave 2 corrective cycles are completed, the market might will ready for another impulsive wave up of a higher degree and uptrend continuation.
