There’s no doubt that the past 36 hours have provided for a tumultuous period across the board within the cryptocurrency sphere as the entire space has been littered a shade of crimson with numerous names violating short-term support levels and wreaking havoc in the process from a technical standpoint.
While we suspected that something was not right these past several days based on the action as well as the numerous names that we have recently profiled in these Technical reports displaying both vulnerable as well as slippery technical characteristics, the market has rendered its verdict via a harsh downdraft throughout the entire landscape leaving none unscathed.
With that said, a tremendous amount of technical damage has been inflicted and it will take time to repair the damage done. Let’s take a look at the Chart of Bitcoin (BTC) to see what may be in store moving forward.
As we can observe above, Bitcoin (BTC) has officially failed with its second attempt out of an inverted H&S formation and in the process, has now breached both our previously noted 8200 as well as the 7800 potential short-term support levels.
In addition, we can also see that BTC now resides beneath all of its important moving averages (20/50/200), which from a technical perspective, remains in an unfavorable posture.
Moving forward, both investors/traders may want to pay particular attention to the following levels for further clues/evidence with respect to direction.
If, at any time in the days ahead, BTC is capable of recapturing both the 7800 as well as the 8200 levels, which were acting as potential support and will now serve as short-term resistance, such development/s, should they materialize, would be a start in repairing the technical damage inflicted.
On the flip-side of the coin, both the 7240 as well as the 6880 levels may offer/provide short-term support. Should both levels ‘give way’ at any point in the days/weeks ahead, the probability suggests that a re-test of the February low located at the 6K level is likely.
Needless to say, the entire cryptocurrency universe remains under pressure and while we fully suspect that both investors/traders will be treated to some relief in the days ahead, a tremendous amount of technical damage has been levied and will take time in order to repair.

Blockchain technology outshines Bitcoin and Gold during global pandemic
As the popularity of cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin begins to level up with investments made in metals such as Gold, together they have both made significant advantages for investors who have taken a leap to invest in them.
However, thanks to the pandemic and the dynamic shift in investing and the economy, many investors have seen fluctuating losses and gains thanks to the uncertainty of the current business world.
Many investors that backed companies who have exposure to blockchain technology have seen an approximate amount of 54% return on investments over the past year. This is even after considering how hard the global tech market and companies have been hit since the beginning of the pandemic.
What is blockchain technology?
Blockchain technology was first introduced as a supportive technology for Bitcoin. A blockchain is a simple, unchangeable and un-hackable digital ledger that holds transactions in little blocks attached to a chain. The transaction is duplicated and distributed across the entire network of systems on the blockchain, making it available for everyone on the network to see.
Each block in the chain contains various transactions which are recorded on the participant ledger every time a transaction takes place. The database is decentralised and is managed by multiple participants known as Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT).
Although blockchain technology was birthed from Bitcoin and was widely adopted for the use of cryptocurrencies, the way it works and its security has made…

NFT(Non-Fungible Token) technology has recently gained huge focus in the blockchain arena and beyond, making waves in the online gaming sector, the art world, and the digital copyrights industry in recent years. The strongest feature of NFTs is that “NFTs are unique digital assets that cannot be replaced or forged”. Unlike fungible tokens such as Bitcoin or Ether, NFTs are not interchangeable for other tokens of the same type but instead each NFT has a unique value and specific information that cannot be replaced. This fact makes NFTs the perfect solution to record and prove ownership of digital and real-world items like works of art, game items, limited-edition collectibles, and more.
NFTs are already being actively traded in markets globally. For…
