As we take a close look at the charts for Bitcoin (BTC) and Tron (TRX) below, our goal will be to develop scenarios for understanding potential support levels given what appears to be – for much of the cryptocurrency complex – a new leg lower in the overall bearish trend that got started at the beginning of this year.

This process is about implementing a study of both the tone of the action and the levels appear on the charts based on an intricate analysis of historical prices and the key levels that played important roles in the action over the course of the last year of price movement.

Bitcoin (BTC)

Price Analysis

  • High: $6723.1
  • Low: $6404.1
  • 24-Hour Volume: $4.80B
  • 7-day Percent Change: -13.03%

While the selloff over recent days has been relatively severe, Bitcoin (BTC) remains an overall island of relative strength based on both the magnitude of its recent declines – much less on the downside then we see in many other large market cap coins – and the relationship of its current price in comparison with its major pivots over recent months.

In other words, Bitcoin (BTC) remains well above its lows from late June, unlike many other coins.

However, even given this relative strength, there’s no denying the technical damage that has been done over the past 10 days. The 50-day simple moving average is toast. The range highs from early July are likewise toasted. That centers our analysis on the pivot lows established in late March and early April between $6400 and $6600.

The key level below that point for Bitcoin (BTC) is marked by a pivot low established in mid-June and the clear higher low pivot inflection established in mid-July. This level is still well below but should be on the radar at around $6100.

Either the current zone around $6500, or this lower level around $6100, should be enough to spark at least a selling exhaustion point capable of spurring a bounce back up to test the 50-day simple moving average in confluence with the $7000 level.

Tron (TRX)

Price Analysis

  • High: $0.0277
  • Low: $0.024744
  • 24-Hour Volume: $120.77M
  • 7-day Percent Change: -18.9%

Tron (TRX) is a very different picture.

While it may appear as though the action in Tron (TRX) has been driven by a correlation with Bitcoin, it should be clear that TRX is badly underperforming Bitcoin in recent action, and has been demonstrating this underperformance for the better part of the past few months.

On its face, this makes Tron (TRX) one of the worst-performing coins across the crypto complex over the past few months. That suggests that TRX became crowded with overeager bounce positions that are now being liquidated as recent lows are taken out during the decline.

However, hope springs eternal in a bear market. And the next level of hope that may come into play and drive the potential for a bounce in Tron (TRX) should come into play as we reach dramatically oversold readings on the 14-day RSI indicator in confluence with a test of the pivot lows from early February and mid-March in the neighborhood of the $0.025 level.

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.

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…

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.

The first of…
