Bitcoin (BTC/USD)

  • Hourly MACD: Placed slightly in the Sell zone.

At the time of writing, Bitcoin (BTC) had already dropped well below the $6400 USD level to $6345.3 USD and the market sentiment is largely bearish. (As of 11th July 2018) The price action of BTC/USD pair, as observed from the chart, shows that it had started falling after a slight upward movement over the weekend, and had dropped yesterday from nearly $6696.06 to almost $6307.64. Comparatively, the cryptocurrency is trying to recover a little bit today with approximately 0.69% (24h) rise at the time of writing.

The price of Bitcoin had dipped below $6000 level by the end of June but, the bulls had taken over at the beginning of July. This had given a little hope to the investors. As can be seen on the chart, it was quite close to the $6800 level but the price movement had trespassed the support areas at $6600 and $6400. Even though the declines seem to have paused above the 50% Fibonacci retracement, there seems to be another rising wedge pattern that may end in more declines in the medium-term.

Bitcoin Cash (BCH/USD)

Price Analysis

  • High: $688.2 USD
  • Low: $84.7 USD
  • Major Resistance Level: $735
  • Hourly MACD: Very slowly moving towards the Bullish zone.

The price of BCH/USD pair is experiencing a major bearish trend and has gone beyond the $700 level. Even if the pair corrects in the short-term it is still unsure whether the price will move to create a major uptrend. Yesterday, the Bitcoin Cash market had experienced a sharp downfall in price, from a little above $750 to nearly $684. The price of Bitcoin Cash at the time of writing shows $688.2 USD while the market tries to recover a little, nearly 0.15% (24h) increase. (As of 11th July 2018)

According to the chart, resistances have formed above the $706 level with $710 (previous support) being a key barrier at the moment. Chances are there that the price of the BCH/USD pair can move beyond the $710 level. The major resistance is formed at the $735 level based on the hourly chart and the same trend line is quite close to the 50% Fibonacci retracement level. As the 100 hourly SMA is positioned near resistance line $735, if the price moves uptrend and reaches the level then it is more likely to face some challenges. The upside is that if the price steadies itself above the $710 level there is a chance of formation of a stronger uptrend. It is also to be seen how the news of the upcoming Bitcoin Cash hard fork in November 2018 (released today) will affect the market.

The Fibonacci retracement levels for both Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash at the moment shows there is still a chance of recovery for the crypto coins and move into the bullish zone.

Cryptocurrency Fraud is Evolving

In one of the more overlooked aspects of the crypto ecosystem, it appears that the bulk of illicit activities are shifting from hacks and thefts to cryptocurrency fraud and scams.

CipherTrace, the crypto-surveillance, and analysis firm released a report at the end of Q4 2019 that revealed hacks and thefts had decreased by 66 percent in 2019 while fraud and misappropriation of funds surged by 533 percent. And beneath the COVID-19 hysteria of 2020, hacks in the crypto sector have been eerily isolated. 

Outside of a few exploited flaws in P2P exchanges and DeFi flash loan vulnerabilities, the headline-grabbing hacks of exchanges for hundreds of millions of dollars have been absent so far this year. Is the industry due for another massive hack, or are stringent KYC/AML processes, regulatory crackdowns, better security practices, and blockchain surveillance working? 

KYC/AML Improvements Are Reducing the Appeal of Crypto Exchange Laundering 

2020 is far removed from the no-KYC wild west days of the early-mid 2010s where anonymous altcoin casinos preponderated and the Dark Underbelly of Cryptocurrency Markets thrived. 

Today, bitcoin and the crypto ecosystem is becoming institutionalized with a surfeit of derivatives (e.g., options, futures, perp swaps, etc.) available on…
