Bitcoin (BTC) Bitcoin Cash (BCH) Price Analysis: The Straight Dope



Bitcoin Price

As the bear market in the cryptocurrency complex rolls on with seemingly inexhaustible selling pressure, it is natural for traders to try and look for technical signals of a bottom before a bottom is actually made.

As we take a close look at the charts for Bitcoin (BTC) and Bitcoin Cash (BCH), it’s important to keep this in mind. As technicians often note, “The trend is your friend, until the end, when it bends.”

This is not meant to be mysterious for the sake of being mysterious. While many things can be counterintuitive in the world of technical analysis, in this case, the picture is relatively straightforward.

Bitcoin (BTC)

Price Analysis

  • High: $6253.7
  • Low: $5898.3
  • 24-Hour Volume: $4.55B
  • 7-day Percent Change: -14.29%

As noted above, the action right now is defined as a bear market context. Indicators and the Bitocin price have rolled over. Coins are trading below major moving averages. And volume is starting to rise on the downside as levels are taken out.

Bitcoin (BTC) has managed to avoid taking out most of its major levels so far, with the $6000 level only taken out last night.

At this point, all eyes are going to be fixated on the $5800 level as a last-ditch support before we start logging new 2018 lows.

Because the retail public and most financial media outlets all focus on the Bitcoin price as being the defining central point of the cryptocurrency complex, new 2018 year-to-date lows may spur some headlines that create the possibility of a self-reinforcing feedback loop of demoralization.

While that sounds like an awful outcome, it may, in fact, be the best thing that could happen right now. It’s important that we shake out the weak hands in coins like BTC and find a new base of support before moving higher so the next rally isn’t a false one.

Bitcoin Cash (BCH)

Price Analysis

  • High: $531.29
  • Low: $474.37
  • 24-Hour Volume: $407.69M
  • 7-day Percent Change: -28.78%

Bitcoin Cash (BCH) had been a clear point of relative strength, forging a bullish ascending triangle (that never triggered) and showing extra gusto during the spiking rallies recorded last month.

However, since then, we’ve seen a series of sloped and lateral support levels broken with ease like a hot knife slicing through butter. Bitcoin Cash (BCH) has become a point of relative weakness during this decline that has lasted over the past couple of weeks.

As should be clear on the chart above, the April lows are now toasted. All eyes will start to fixate far below the $300 level as the important line in the sand if current weakness persists in BCH.

Happy Trading~

Reasons Why You Are Much Safer When Crypto Trading on Dexes




While many cryptocurrencies aim to bring the change to the world by bringing full decentralization, one aspect of the crypto space still remains mostly centralized, and that is the way they are exchanged. Most crypto exchanges are centralized companies, where traders and investors need to deposit their coins for safekeeping. This is a risky way to handle the funds, as exchanges remain susceptible to hacks and theft, as many realized recently, after the hack of the world’s largest exchange by trading volume, Binance.

During the hack, around 7,000 BTC (over $40 million) was taken, and sent to multiple wallets, never to be seen again — for now, at least. The hack also came as quite a shock, as Binance was known for its efficiency, security, and high levels of confidence. It also made people realize that their coins are not really theirs if they need to rely on third parties, such as exchanges, to keep them safe. As a result, many are now turning away from centralized exchanges, and are heading towards decentralized ones — also known as DEXes.

Here are some reasons why you might want to consider doing the same.

1. True ownership of your coins

The crypto community has a saying: “not your keys, not your coins.” The saying is now more relevant than ever, but it does not apply on DEXes. Decentralized exchanges

Crypto Billionaire Predicts Massive Price Growth by 2021



crypto billionaire

Crypto prices are once again going up, and Bitcoin has just passed a major resistance level at $6,000. With a situation like that, it is not surprising that everyone in the crypto community is looking forward to the future, wondering what to expect in years to come. Many experts have already given their predictions, some more optimistic than others, but almost all bullish.

Crypto billionaire Mike Novogratz has always been very supportive of cryptocurrencies, and very bullish on Bitcoin. He recently stated that he sees the coins’ prices triple in the following 18 months, meaning that Bitcoin’s return to $20,000 might not be far away, according to him.

He noted that Bitcoin is back to $6,000 after its price hit as low as $3,100 only a few months ago. These days, Novogratz does not believe Bitcoin will return to such lows unless there is a devastating exchange hack or a major shift in regulations. Of course, there was a big hack that had the potential to damage the coin’s price, only days ago. The world’s largest crypto exchange by trading volume, Binance, saw a significant security breach which resulted in a theft of 7,000 BTC.

However, so far, the coin did not react negatively to this incident. While Novogratz believed that such an event would shatter the new confidence in BTC, it simply did not happen. However, he…

TokenRoll (TKR) Platform Will Take Online Casinos to the Next Level




Corporate executives are turning to blockchain technology more than ever in an attempt to revolutionize the business world.  Although blockchain is still a relatively new concept, that hasn’t stopped more and more companies from jumping on the bandwagon.  This hot new technology has quickly gained a reputation for providing greater transparency, enhanced security, improved traceability, increased efficiency, and low costs.  One industry that could certainly benefit from decentralization is the online gambling market, specifically, online casinos.  TokenRoll (TKR) has developed a platform that appears to offer a promising alternative to centralized casinos.

Problems with Centralized Casinos

The primary reason why blockchain technology is being implemented so quickly is because it solves a lot of the problems typically associated with the traditional business model.  And online casinos are no different.  It still needs to be said that centralized casinos have proven that there is a great demand for online gambling.  The market is growing faster than anyone could have predicted, and future opportunities appear very promising and lucrative.  But industries are continually evolving and this one is no different.

A few of the problems facing centralized casinos include the following:

  • Little to no transparency
  • Consumer lack of confidence
  • Privacy concerns
  • 48-72 hour wait time for withdrawals

These are four monumental issues that need to be addressed quickly given the global growth of the market.  Casinos need to…
