Cardano, along with most of the popular cryptocurrencies, hit its most recent low of the crypto bear market on or about the last week of March 2018. Since then the cryptocurrencies have been on a rebound that marks the first indication that the cryptocurrency market may be stabilizing, and once again turning bullish. However, one bounce off the bottom does not mark a reversal. Cardano bounced off its local lowest close of $.14266605 on March 29, 2018. Over the entire month of April, it has traded in a steady upward trajectory with very light dips to a high of $.38845159 on April 29, 2017, as displayed in Chart #1 below.

CHART #1: ADA/Tether Daily

Another notable attribute of the daily chart is the diminishing volume as price increases from the bounce off the low to the current price. An upward price movement of this type accompanied with increasing volume would be a strong long entry setup. This situation, as tempting as it may seem to enter long on the next dip, may be setting up for a short position. Chart #2 below displays a 60-minute price chart and delves into a more in-depth analysis that serves to confirm the upcoming retracement.

CHART #2: ADA/Tether 60-minute

Chart #2 included a moving-average convergence-divergence indicator (MACD). On the last two price swings for Cardano, the MACD indicator has accurately picked up convergence for the downward price swing and is currently displaying the price/MACD divergence pattern that the price action for Cardano is in the midst of completing. This price pattern, along with the diminishing volume is a very strong indication that the current upward price movement is about to “run out of steam.” This is a good short signal with a profit target of about a 50% retracement, from the low where the upward price move commenced, and a stop-loss of a 1-to-1 ratio or tighter.

Once the retracement begins, careful ongoing inspections of the volume patterns should be conducted. If the retracement stays at least 25% above the last local low of $.14266605, then the possibility that a genuine reversal is taking place becomes more realistic.  As the volume patterns begin to favor upside movements, and indicators begin triggering long entry setups, taking a long position will be a prudent move. Cardano is still priced very low at $.373398 in spite of the fact that it’s currently ranked #6 on the list of cryptocurrencies in terms of Market Capitalization with a market cap of $9.681Bil. It is also ranked 9th in terms of trade volume as of May 2, 2018. When the Crypto Bull Market returns, Cardano is well positioned to “Ride the Bull.”

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.

ICTE May Bring About Sweeping Changes for Cryptocurrency Exchanges

Cryptocurrency has taken the world by storm during the last few years. An entirely new financial market was created almost overnight which has captured the imagination of all its participants. Cryptocurrency is even starting to attract institutional money from investment banks, hedge funds, and other proprietary trading firms. Despite the rapid growth, traders remain extremely frustrated by having to deal with the fragmented nature of centralized crypto exchanges.

A Change is Needed

When cryptocurrency first began, there weren’t many participants and the trading volume was relatively insignificant. But, over time, that has radically changed. Some tokens now have a capitalization in the billions and are being traded 24-7 by institutions all over the world. Despite the volume, significant problems exist with the current way that exchanges work. Some of those problems include the following:

  • Constant fear of hackers
  • Exchange manipulation
  • Fragmented liquidity
  • Risk of identity theft

One of the biggest issues regarding centralized exchanges is the risk of being hacked. These hack stories seem to always be circulating around the internet. While experienced traders may have the tools to avoid becoming a victim, potential new traders have zero interest in dealing with this. And it’s not just the small exchanges that are at risk. Even large exchanges, such as Mt. Gox and Binance, are subject to being hacked.

Another huge risk is having to deal with…

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…
