As the downward movement of the entire cryptocurrency market continues for the rest of the week, both Cardano (ADA) and Stellar Lumens (XLM) are struggling to reach their respective resistance points and are slightly on the bearish side of the trend. At the time of writing (12th July 2018), Cardano holds the eighth position on Coinmarketcap whereas Stellar Lumens is just one step ahead securing the seventh position. Below, you would find out the most recent price analyses of both of them against USD to have an idea about their future.

Cardano (ADA/USD)

Price Analysis:

  • High: 0.131508 USD
  • Low: 0.127146 USD
  • Major Resistance Level: 0.14 USD
  • Hourly MACD: Placed slightly in the sell zone.

The price of this cryptocurrency is now veering around the $0.12 mark and following a downward trend. However, by applying tools like Fibonacci retracement, we can observe an indication of trend reversal very shortly. The difference between the moving averages is also gradually decreasing which also indicates the very same fact. The relative sell index (RSI), however remaining in the similar position might change the hourly MACD with its upward movement and bring the currency back to the buying zone. Also, Cardano has been in an advantageous position in comparison with Bitcoin for the most part of this week which provides it the edge required to change its current trend. If the moving averages continue to get closer, it will be just a matter of time that the red candles of bearish trend would change into green bullish ones.

Stellar Lumens (XLM/USD)

Price Analysis:

  • High: 0.1899279 USD
  • Low: 0.1860386 USD
  • Major Resistance Level: 0.2200000 USD
  • Hourly MACD: Placed slightly in the sell zone.

Stellar Lumens is sitting at the $0.187256 mark which still indicates a bearish trend with a decrease of 0.41% from its previous figure. Besides the US Dollar, XLM is also following a downward trend when compared to Bitcoin. Throughout this week, XLM has been trying to reach its resistance of 0.2200 USD mark. A few hours earlier, it got immensely close to that figure but rejected and came down below $0.18 mark with an RSI of 37.212. However, at this moment the value of the RSI is slightly on the higher side which might be a good omen for the traders across the globe. Similar to Cardano, the difference between the moving averages is also decreasing which might indicate a reversal in the current bearish trend. As per the breaking point in the upper trend line of the previous analysis, the bulls were defending the downward movement of the price from a psychological perspective and depending on the market sentiment.

The development team of XLM has been working hard in order to change the current scenario. On 10th July, this currency announced their support for a new start-up named London Football Exchange. Several partnerships and listings are still on the way for this currency which could change its market sentiment.

Based on this information, it can be inferred that despite the fact that both of these digital coins are slightly on the bearish side, a strong bull run is right in the corner.

Reasons Why You Are Much Safer When Crypto Trading on Dexes

DEXes
READ LATER - DOWNLOAD THIS POST AS PDF

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 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…

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…
