BitShares (BTS) – Technical Analysis – BTS Consolidating Before Its Next Thrust?

Published

on

BitShares

BitShares (BTS) is an open-source, public blockchain-based, real-time financial platform. It provides a decentralized asset exchange similar to the NYSE, but for cryptocurrencies and without the need to trust a central authority to handle all the funds that facilitate trading using an international network of computers, in which anyone can take part.

According to the developers, the platform is capable of processing 100,000 transactions per second (tps) and even more with minimal optimization. For comparison, Visa (NYSE: V), one of the largest financial providers in the world, handles, on average, 2,000 tps with a maximum capacity of 24,000 tps.

BTS allows its users to trade on the built-in fully decentralized exchange (DEX). While traditional cryptocurrency exchanges rely on their own private servers to store, handle and control all the funds, they also have a history of theft, being hacked, or closed down.

The idea of a DEX is to have no access to its users’ private keys, which are the cryptographic equivalent of a strong password to a regular Internet account, and to operate on a distributed computer network. This way traders remain in full control of their money and the trading platform itself is more resistant to attacks.

With that behind us, let’s take a look at BTS from a technical perspective and what may be in store moving forward.

For the past several Months (February-April) BTS found itself in a basing pattern and has just moved out of its Stage I base (short-term) on large volume as can be viewed above.

At present, we can also observe that BTS is trading above all of its important moving averages –  20/50 and 200DMA’s, which from a technical viewpoint, is a positive.

In addition, we can also see that BTS is currently digesting/consolidating the recent thrust on lower volume, while doing so in a Pennant formation, also very constructive and as well, a favorable technical posture.

Moving forward, both investors/traders may want to pay close attention to the action in BTS. More specifically, should BTS ‘pop’ top-side out of its Pennant and perhaps more importantly, be capable of clearing the $.42 level, such development, should it materialize, may just set the stage for another thrust into higher ground with a potential target zone of $.55 – $.60 in the days/weeks ahead,

On the flip-side, the $.32 level should provide decent short-term support, while for those longer-term investors, the $.23 figure provides another level of potential support.

Nevertheless, both investors/traders may want to put BTS front-and-center on their radars, monitoring the action closely in the days ahead as we suspect that another thrust ‘Top-Side’ may be imminent.

Happy Trading!

Chainwire Launches Blockchain-Focused Automated Press Release Distribution Service

Published

on

TEL AVIV, Israel, 13th October, 2020, // ChainWire //

MarketAcross, a world leader in blockchain public relations and marketing services, is pleased to announce the launch of Chainwire, an automated press release distribution service which provides guaranteed coverage and in-depth reports. Chainwire will be a one-stop-shop for the distribution of press releases in the cryptocurrency and blockchain sector. The launch marks the first time that advertisers can reach leading publications in the crypto media with the click of a button. 

While most industries have some kind of PR newswire service, the cryptocurrency sector has become a victim of its own rapid pace of growth over recent years. Since the ICO boom of 2017, there has been a proliferation of blockchain and crypto-focused projects, exchanges, investment firms, and marketing agencies, along with niche news and informational content sites. 

However, the infrastructure to connect this complex ecosystem has been slow to come up to speed, meaning that existing newswire services don’t reach their target audience. It’s estimated that one in five people own cryptocurrencies, so there is currently a significant missed opportunity to reach a massive global readership. 

As a newswire service dedicated to the crypto and blockchain space, Chainwire aims to address this gap. Press releases are distributed to leading publications, offering guaranteed coverage to reach audiences worldwide. The system is integrated with publishers and blogs, enabling accurate reporting via a user-friendly dashboard. It also…

Aluna.Social is a Compelling Social Platform for Crypto Traders and Investors

Aluna.Social

When one thinks about the social media landscape, the companies that first come to mind are most likely Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, and Snapchat.  These platforms are a great way to stay connected with friends, families, and colleagues, especially when geographic distance is a factor.  But, in addition to just chatting about life in general and sharing pictures, social media can be used to bridge the information gap that exists within the investment community.

Over the last decade, many trading offices have been established in large cities all over the world which allow solo traders and investors to pay a monthly fee in exchange for a workspace.  The real benefit to trading in these offices is to participate in the free flow of trading ideas and information.  Proprietary trading is one of the most challenging careers to be successful at and the exchange of ideas is almost required in order to succeed.  Traders at hedge funds and investment banks work in teams so why shouldn’t remote traders?

While these trading offices are a great way to help bridge the information gap, Aluna.Social may provide an even better way, especially as it relates to cryptocurrency trading.

Mission Statement

Aluna.Social, founded by Alvin Lee and Henrique Matias, is a multi-exchange social trading terminal for crypto traders and investors.  The goal of the platform is to help newcomers shorten their learning curve, unlock their full potential, and improve trading performance.  Cryptocurrency trading can…
