With some early success, Twitter's crypto bots were hit, and word started to spread over the whole crypto Twitter platform. Coincidentally, this is happening as ETH stabilises, however, BTC keeps declining amid a trade recession.

With some early success, Twitter's crypto bots were hit, and word started to spread over the whole crypto Twitter platform. But as ETH stabilises, BTC keeps declining.

Everyone who has sought to utilise Twitter for anything major in 2022 can verify the fact that the troll situation has become far beyond a minor annoyance, overwhelming any effort to have a true debate with a profusion of speedy replies to tweets.

To the joy of devoted Twitter accounts, reports began to circulate on Monday from throughout Crypto Twitter that Elon Musk's current measure to limit transactions with bot identities is having a significant impact.

People need real information during a time when everything is getting tighter. This signals one possible large-scale for the information platform. 

IP firewalls strengthened

The very first sign that a workable formula would soon be implemented was Musk's post on Sunday, which said, “The bots will receive a surprise tomorrow.”

Upon learning that a small handful of people were in charge of a big amount of bot/troll identities, the Twitter CEO replied with a tweet explaining the steps the firm had taken to ban entrance to the IPs of “confirmed bad actors”.

Musk went on to reassure People on Twitter that the social media network will do everything possible to “bring them down as soon as they come up”, despite hackers' great attempts to get past the IP address restriction.

It was almost impossible to advertise a project or engage with the ecosystem before the service made this modification since publishing something crypto-relevant by any popular account would result in a flood of automated responses.

Smaller projects find it especially difficult to advertise themselves to the crypto world on Twitter, which is one of the best places to do so.

As the creator of Dogecoin, Billy Markus, noted in a blog post, “excellent progress, very thrilled” he “made a test post and rather than getting 50 bot responses, I only received one”. Markus was attempting to assess the effectiveness of Twitter's move to restrict bot responses.

Latest crypto prices: state of BTC and ETH 

The markets are still red from jitters as Musk's struggle continues. Every sector is awaiting the outcome of the situation.

This covers the depressingly inaccurate BTC price projections made thus far. When investors finally realised that big coins such as Bitcoin and Ethereum are likely to hit a lasting ceiling, the historic uptrend for crypto was brought to a halt.

Central banks' rate increases caused crypto to continue losing money. Losses continue following Friday's declines.

ETH dropped nearly 6% and is attempting to recover at £980, while the largest coin, BTC, ate more than 1% of its worth and dropped to £13,900.

The brief crypto spike is said to have been contained as a consequence of the recent rate hikes by central banks including the Federal Reserve, Bank of England, and European Central Bank.

Analysts believe that the current frenzy on Binance and the collapse of FTX (which declared bankruptcy) may make it impossible for the industry to recover soon.

As per Changpeng Zhao, the founder of Binance, the biggest crypto exchange, over a billion dollars were deleted in a single day as market players proceeded to retaliate against rival FTX's collapse.

The collapse of FTX last month was reportedly one of the greatest frauds in US history. Sam Bankman-Fried, the founder of FTX, is currently in custody on suspicion of misleading investors by claiming that his company was one of the cleanest in the crypto industry.

It was stated last month that the collapse of FTX may have left more than 1 million businesses and individuals in debt.

Other economic news includes drops in Cardano (ADA), Dogecoin (DOGE), and Solana SOL)., as well as a 0.5% drop in Binance currency (BNB).
