After anticipating a strong and rapid countertrend rally in the last week of June that we shared on several occasions with readers of Global Coin Report and believed such would commence in the early parts of July, both cryptocurrency investors and traders have been treated to some welcome relief with Bitcoin (BTC) producing a nearly 50% upside move from the depths of despair at the 5700 level and since running up into the 8500 zone.

In addition, after two (2) unsuccessful attempts earlier this year (March & May) to complete inverted Head-and-Shoulders (H&S) formations, only to be rebuffed at the neckline of each, which produced subsequent declines, Bitcoin (BTC) was finally able to get the job done in July when it went top-side of the 6900 level, a level that we had been directing readers attention for close monitoring, as well as the successful completion of the most recent inverted H&S pattern.

Thus, Three Times was indeed A Charm.

Furthermore, with Bitcoin’s successful completion of its inverted H&S pattern, BTC has also fulfilled our noted measured move price objective in the 7800-8000 zone and did so by exceeding the target via its 8500 print, which has since paused/stalled at its declining 200 day SMA.

So, with BTC presently hovering just below its all-important 200 day SMA and appearing to pause/stall, the question begs, “Is the countertrend rally over?”

While we believe it’s premature to declare such rally as ‘Over’ at this particular juncture, let’s take a look at the charts to see what they may be foretelling.

BITCOIN

As we can observe above, BTC finds itself consolidating the recent thrust just beneath its declining 200 SMA. However, we can also see that BTC remains well above both its 20 and 50 day SMA’s, which from a short and intermediate-term technical perspective, is a positive, as well as remaining in a healthy posture, for now.

Moving forward, in order for BTC to ‘get going’ once again and resume its northern trajectory, both investors and traders may want to pay close attention to the 200 day SMA located at the 8440ish level as well as the 8510 and 9020 figures as potential overhead resistance levels to be cleared.

On the flip-side of the coin, potential levels of support can be found at the 7800 as well as 7200-7300 zone and perhaps most importantly, the 6800-6900 zone.

BITCOIN CASH

Bitcoin Cash (BCH) has been holding up fairly well, thus far, and has our attention. Although further work is required, both investors/traders may want to pay particular attention to the 890 level for top-side confirmation that things are about to get ‘underway’, while a move below 770 and perhaps more importantly, the 740 figure, would put a damper on the present technical outlook.

ETHEREUM

As we can witness above, ETH is now starting to breach the lower side of its short-term trendline after coiling for the past several weeks and now finds itself trading below all of its important moving averages (20/50/200 SMA). Thus, we would not be surprised if ETH were to make its way back to the 400 level should it be incapable of turning the tide rather quickly here.

LITECOIN

Much like ETH, Litecoin (LTC) is also breaching its short-term trendline to the downside and trading below all of its important moving averages with the 75 figure and 70-72 zone providing potential short-term support.

CARDANO

Cardano (ADA) had found itself trading within a triangle and holding up fairly well. However, as we can observe above, ADA has since violated the lower boundary and once again, finds itself trading beneath all of its important moving averages (20/50/200 SMA).

Therefore, while BTC has and remains in ‘better’ technical shape than many of its brethren, and we’re not ready to officially declare that the forecasted countertrend rally is ‘Over’ just yet, we’re beginning to witness some signs that both  investors/traders may need to ‘tighten’ things up and keep their positions on a tight leash, at least those who are trading the short-term gyrations.

Back when Bitcoin originally emerged, over 11 years ago at this point, cryptocurrency transactions were believed to be fully anonymous. This belief stuck around for years to come, but today, we know that, in most cases — this is no longer the truth.

Since the invention of blockchain explorers, it became possible to track every Bitcoin transaction, all the way back to the genesis block. This came as a part of blockchain transparency which promises to eliminate corruption, theft, and other such issues.

However, there is still a need for a certain level of privacy, as people like to keep their wealth to themselves, and not let everyone know how much money they have, or how much they sent for whatever purpose. This is why many are now using crypto tumblers, or mixers.

What do crypto mixers do?

As the name suggests, crypto mixers/tumblers mix up the coins in order to hide/disguise/make it difficult to discover where the coins came from. Things like the amounts, transactions, and wallet addresses to and from which the coins travel are fully traceable, which is why tumblers exist.

In a way, you could say that mixers can add an extra layer of privacy while using Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, and many other cryptocurrencies. There are many Bitcoin mixers Continue Reading

It seems like BTC is always making headlines for one reason or another.

When the market points towards bullish behavior Bitcoin is all the rage. When there is so much long action (going on right now) and then the price plummets, BTC also dominates the headlines. The same goes for legislation and when any new crypto product or platform comes out. It’s always compared against BTC.

So with BTC fever in full swing, sportsbooks around the world have adopted digital currencies as one of their main forms of funding accounts and paying out winnings. And with sports betting legalized in states across the USA, both BTC and legal online gambling are in the limelight. 

But where are the best places to bet using BTC and other cryptos? Furthermore, why would you want to use BTC, LTC, or Ethereum in this manner?

The Why

The principal reason why you would want to use cryptocurrencies in your ‘sports investing’ ventures is speed, cost, security, and bonuses.

When you use cryptos like BTC (BTX) to move money in and out of your account. You bypass the standard centralized banking system which drastically improves on both the speed of the transaction and the cost of the transaction – this is especially true with payouts.
