From a technical perspective, several of the most highly liquid and highly traded cryptocurrencies have begun to hint at some interesting new potential on their charts over recent days.

This type of action is not definitive at this stage – there’s very little confirmation. However, the game here is a probabilistic one that involves close scrutiny of past and present chart patterns mixed with the identification of an advantageous risk:reward statistical edge.

From that standpoint, both Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH) are clearly worth a closer look at the present as both coins are starting to show off some very interesting bullish potential provided key levels continue to hold firm.

Bitcoin (BTC)

Price Analysis:

  • High: $7700
  • Low: $7378.26
  • Major Resistance Level: $7750
  • Hourly MACD: Strong Upward Momentum

Naturally, everyone knows Bitcoin (BTC) has been in a serious bear market trend over the past seven months. However, recent action suggests that the potential for some form of upward inflection should be taken seriously.

First off, we have begun to see signs in recent days of the potential for the affirmation of the formation of a higher low at key support. This higher low pivot stands in relation to the late June dive down well beneath the $6000 level in BTC.

The recent hold at that same level over the last few days suggests that the recent break back above 50-day simple moving average and the $7000 level over recent days is a major inflection the market context.

As noted above, given the direction of the trend on the chart over the larger time frame, this is hardly a confirmation, but it is very promising from a technical standpoint. In other words, the action over the past week clearly suggests that Bitcoin (BTC) is beginning to show a set of signals that demand greater focus from active traders over coming days, and the clear possibility that the bear market has run its course.

Ethereum (ETH)

Price Analysis:

  • High: $469.30
  • Low: $454.55
  • Major Resistance Level: $500
  • Hourly MACD: Emerging Upward Momentum


Ethereum (ETH) has been positively divergent to Bitcoin (BTC) over the past several months, meaning that it has been slightly outperforming on a swing for swing basis in relation to the other clear and key events shown on the chart, internally speaking.

And this continues to bear itself out.

As we noted above, Bitcoin (BTC) has been showing some interesting signs of the possibility of a bullish higher low. In fact, Ethereum (ETH) is posting perhaps even more convincing signs of the same phenomenon, and the potential for a break back above the $500 level over the very near term.

In terms of identifying the other side of the equation – risk – one need only look at the trendline formed over the lows made in this coin over the past 3 to 4 months.

While some interesting potential bullish signals may be coming into place for ETH, one getting involved here on a speculative technical basis certainly would not want to stay involved through a move back underneath that trendline.

Happy Trading~

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…

In the hyper-competitive world of online casinos, operators are always looking for ways to stand out from the crowd. The most usual methods include using distinctive branding, offering generous bonuses and making sure that they are on all of the major so-called affiliate sites where players can compare and contrast casinos’ different offerings.

But now a whole new generation of casinos are starting to emerge – ones whose key difference isn’t what and how you play, but more in how you pay.

The rise and rise of the cryptocurrency casino is seen by many as the next logical step in a world that is slowly but surely starting to accept that Bitcoin, Ethereum, Ripple, et al. are certainly here to stay.

Of course, it’s the first of these cryptocurrencies that has really grabbed the headlines and led the way with its meteoric performance in 2017 when it seemed like its $20,000 value was just the start of the story. Admittedly, this was short-lived and the value quickly fell back to a more sustainable level but, if it achieved one thing, it was to cement this exciting new kind of currency in the consciousness of the general public.

Why Bitcoin and online casinos are the perfect partners

In many ways, it’s the perfect partnership between Bitcoin and online casinos with multiple benefits for both.

Investors Beware: Another Large Bitcoin Crash Might Be Coming

The crypto prices have surged quite high in the last few months. Of course, their progress is nowhere near the one seen in 2017, but they appear to be getting there, one day at the time. However, things might not be as simple as that, and according to recent performance — it is more than possible that a major Bitcoin crash is incoming.

The fact is that cryptos saw a massive amount of growth in a very short period. Bitcoin itself more than doubled its price in only two months. Now, the rally is starting to crash in on itself, and the coin is already about $1,000 lower than last week. If such development does come to pass, a lot of people will experience quite large losses, although experienced investors might find some opportunities, and leverage in order to enhance their holdings’ long-term value.

For example, Bitcoin dominance is expected to crash very quickly, which will work in favor of quite a lot of altcoins. While this does not seem to be the best time to invest in BTC, altcoins are another story, and diversifying a portfolio now might end up being very profitable in days to come.

Bitcoin behavior mirrors the pre-bear market situation

The crash that analysts are predicting right now comes as a direct consequence of all the hype that has been building up in…
