The struggle of Bitcoin in this bearish market continues throughout this week as well. Since its major downfall in January (from $20,000 to $8,000), the number one cryptocurrency is yet to find a way to engineer a major trend reversal. On the other hand, its hard fork Bitcoin Cash seems to gain some ground over the past few days and is looking to bring in some potentially good news for the investors. At the time of writing (i.e. 13th July 2018), Bitcoin is holding the number one position with a price equivalent to $6,257.16 and  BCH is holding the fourth position on Coinmarketcap right behind Ripple with a price of $698.74.

Here, you would find comprehensive price analyses of both of these currencies to have some idea about their probable future.

Bitcoin (BTC/USD)

Price Analysis

  • High: $6284.05USD
  • Low: $6243.53 USD
  • Major Resistance Level: $6,600 USD
  • Hourly MACD: Placed slightly in the sell zone with range bound movement predominantly.

Bitcoin is veering around the $6,200 mark at the moment with a steep bearish trend. Trading experts and crypto-connoisseurs have been speculating that the sudden drop of the crypto-market by 10 billion USD over the past two days has invariably caused this major downfall. At one point, Bitcoin’s price dropped to a figure of $6,150. Although the currency has managed to do some damage control since then, the trend is still a bit bearish. Bitcoin is exhibiting an oversold co0ndition with alarmingly low relative strength index (RSI). As long as the value of RSI does not increase, the struggle of BTC to rebound by attempting a corrective rally is likely to continue. According to many speculators, the only feasible way for Bitcoin to commence a rebound is to reach the $6,600 as soon as possible. Fortunately, the market sentiment of such coins change in the blink of an eye and the difference between the moving averages is slowly decreasing. Once BTC reaches the major resistance level, the traders can expect a reversal in the current bearish trend.

Bitcoin Cash (BCH/USD)

Price Analysis

  • High: $706.60 USD
  • Low: $684.60 USD
  • Major Resistance Level: $780 USD
  • Hourly MACD: Placed slightly in the buy zone.

Unlike Bitcoin, its first hard fork BCH is showing some improvements in its price chart over the past few hours. At the moment of writing, the price of Bitcoin Cash is revolving around the $ 700 mark with a bullish trend. Also, over the past week, this coin has managed to place itself in the buy zone. On implementing the Fibonacci Retracement Tool, we would be able to observe that the difference between the moving averages is decreasing thereby bespeaking the fact that this new bullish trend is likely to sustain for the next few days at least. Also, the RSI is on the higher side which also indicates a bullish run.

To sum up, this is looking good for the BCH holders at the moment with its bull run. However, for BTC holders, the scenario is a bit bleak. But as we all are aware of the volatile nature of this market, it is only a matter of time before Bitcoin exhibits a reversal in its current price trend.

Happy Trading!!

There has been a lot of renewed enthusiasm in the cryptocurrency market thanks mainly to Bitcoin’s strong move about 10,000.  Although Bitcoin continues to show its dominance, the altcoin market has yet to benefit from that rally.  A few of the largest altcoins remain popular but the rest of the market continues to lag behind.  In 2018, there was a lot of talk regarding a possible altcoin apocalypse where only the strong would survive.  That prediction appears to be playing out as expected.  Going forward, only the best projects that have a real world need will survive.  Crypto traders will have to spend a lot of their time doing proper research in order to find the best opportunities, just like in all financial markets.  One promising project that appears to have the makings of a future winner is KaratGold Coin.

KaratGold Background

KaratGold Coin is a cryptocurrency developed by the reputable German company Karatbars International, which maintains a leading position in the market of small gold items and investments. The project is part of a larger ecosystem, which involves several blockchain solutions that can be used for transactions, communication, investing and other tasks.

ICTE May Bring About Sweeping Changes for Cryptocurrency Exchanges

Cryptocurrency has taken the world by storm during the last few years. An entirely new financial market was created almost overnight which has captured the imagination of all its participants. Cryptocurrency is even starting to attract institutional money from investment banks, hedge funds, and other proprietary trading firms. Despite the rapid growth, traders remain extremely frustrated by having to deal with the fragmented nature of centralized crypto exchanges.

A Change is Needed

When cryptocurrency first began, there weren’t many participants and the trading volume was relatively insignificant. But, over time, that has radically changed. Some tokens now have a capitalization in the billions and are being traded 24-7 by institutions all over the world. Despite the volume, significant problems exist with the current way that exchanges work. Some of those problems include the following:

  • Constant fear of hackers
  • Exchange manipulation
  • Fragmented liquidity
  • Risk of identity theft

One of the biggest issues regarding centralized exchanges is the risk of being hacked. These hack stories seem to always be circulating around the internet. While experienced traders may have the tools to avoid becoming a victim, potential new traders have zero interest in dealing with this. And it’s not just the small exchanges that are at risk. Even large exchanges, such as Mt. Gox and Binance, are subject to being hacked.

Another huge risk is having to deal with…

SonicX and Dash Could Challenge Facebook’s Libra for Global Payments Market Share

When Satoshi Nakamoto unveiled Bitcoin to the world, the dream was always for Bitcoin to serve as a new universal currency.  It would be free from the bureaucracy of governments.  And free from the tyranny of the old-world financial cartels.  Although the dream hasn’t yet materialized, it comes closer and closer with each passing day.

One of the biggest roadblocks for Bitcoin has been scalability.  At a speed of approximately 7 transactions per second, Bitcoin lags behind other cryptocurrencies like Ripple and global payment processors like Visa.  Many expect the lightning network to have a positive impact on Bitcoin’s TPS but until that comes to fruition, mass adoption will likely need another significant development.

Libra Currency Announcement

One development that could help pave the way toward mass adoption is the launch of the Libra currency.  Libra is expected to go live during the first half of 2020 according to Facebook’s June announcement.  According to Facebook, Libra will make sending money online cheaper and faster.  It will also have a hand in improving access to financial services, especially for the unbanked.  Given Facebook’s global reach, including many third world countries, providing financial access to the unbanked could provide a huge spark to global economies.  Additionally, it could provide the growth spark that cryptocurrency needs.

Facebook’s most popular messenger, WhatsApp, has approximately 1.5 billion monthly users.  This application is…
