As we start the last week of September off and the last week of the third quarter, the bull camp certainly feels like the sentiment has changed. Last week’s XRP mega breakout rally reminded everyone of why we loved crypto in 2017. XRP’s epic run from .27 to .80 in the span of a few days brought out plenty of XRP fanboys and haters. The haters are saying that the move proves that XRP is centralized and was a pump engineering by the folks at Ripple. The fanboys, on the other hand, touted the launch of xRapid and Coil that XRP is getting closer to real-world adoption. Whether you’re an XRP hater or fanboy, the clear reason why we pumped so hard is FOMO. FOMO is very powerful in crypto land and we are glad to see it’s still alive and well in the crypto verse. In our opinion, this is the biggest crypto news of the month – the return of FOMO.
XRP price action
In looking at the XRP price action, we remain bullish on XRP as long as it remains above the 200-day moving average, which is at about .53 on this chart. A close below here would be short-term bearish in our opinion. We expect XRP to consolidate around the 200-day moving average before going on its next run.
Bitcoin needs to hold 6600 or else we will most likely dump to 6400. 6600 was previous resistance that we broke through last week. A drop below will put us back in the neutral zone of 6200 to 6500 that seems like purgatory for Bitcoin. The bears come out of hibernation and say that new lows are on the way and the pessimistic forecasts of $3k and lower starting hitting the headlines.
We do believe that sentiment has changed in the markets and that sentiment is favoring the bulls now. Last week, the market ignored the CVE vulnerability, which is not what a bear market does. In a bear market, any negative news drives prices lower and bullish news is overlooked. Likewise, in a bull market, negative news is ignored and bullish news keeps the momentum going.
Ethereum is the last one we can get bullish on. Matter of fact, if it wasn’t for XRP last week, ETH would probably be under $200 right now. ETH is only trading above its 20-day moving average right now and has the 50-day at 267. ETH is no one even close to its 200-day moving average, which signals to trend traders that the trend remains down and that rallies in ETH are to be sold. We are already witnessing this to start the week as ETH has sold off from 245 to lows of 231. A break below 230, which was prior resistance, and we will target 220 and below again.
Electroneum (ETN) is one of the more popular coins on Global Coin Report and matter of fact, our most popular article ever is on Electroneum. As you can see from the CoinMarketCap chart, ETN has been making a nice run in the last week.
My colleague Ali Qamar had this to say about why Electroneum is running:
Mobile micropayments are also at the heart of Electoneum’s goals, and the project recently released its mobile payment application, in a beta-testing stage. And it seems to be working very well as testers report good news from all over the world about the way the app works and delivers the service it’s supposed to do. All those good news are driving ETN’s price up.
Over on YouTube, Crypto Rich discussed Electroneum in further detail and has been a good source of information on Electroneum and interviewed CEO Richard Ells several times.
The best move right now is to watch closely and wait. Another pump is coming. When no one knows, but when it does, we will be ready.

A matter of time before TRON (TRX) achieves mass adoption
Tron (TRX) has all its eyes on decentralizing the internet, or rather content-sharing to ensure that creatives, artists, musicians, and authors can all release their content without the need of middle companies. As it seems, Tron’s founder hopes that the coin will challenge the globe’s major content providers like Facebook and YouTube.
The coin has undoubtedly made progress since its launch from a coin offering on the Ethereum ledger platform to now a native coin present on the official Tron Mainnet. If you think launching the independent MainNet is all Tron wanted to achieve, you are mistaken.
The aim is towards mass adoption as well as creating a decentralized web. Yeah, it is a fact that in the past weeks TRX has experienced price declines, but currently, the cryptocurrency is riding 5.37% hike against the USD in the last 24 hours (remember most of the other top coins including Bitcoin are in red).
It’s also continued succeeding in attaining quality listings such as the Bittrex (to name one of the most recent ones). Therefore, it seems as every step TRON makes is a sign of progress to make the decentralized web a reality.
How TRON (TRX) is Making Mass Adoption a Reality
The primary objective for TRON (TRX) is to create a decentralized web which will be a representation of the internet’s next generation. Therefore, in making that a reality, the largest file-sharing platform, BitTorrent that has over 100M global…

Hyperion-Stellar Partnership Finalized — Support For Stellar’s Crypto Assets Trade About To Arrive
Hyperion and Stellar: A new partnership
According to a recent announcement by Global Blockchain Technologies Corp., it would seem that the known crypto exchange Hyperion has finally made an agreement with Stellar (XLM). The new partnership is to allow Stellar’s own crypto assets to be traded on Hyperion’s platform. This move is expected to significantly impact Stellar’s price and spread awareness of the coin and its goal even further.
Hyperion uses an alternative trading system (ATS), which was licensed by the SEC. As a part of this arrangement, previously attained via investment in DBOT (Delaware Board of Trade), Hyperion has permission to also operate as a broker-dealer. It is also expected to become North America’s first advanced security token exchange.
As many are already aware of, Stellar is a trading protocol that is used for issuing, exchanging, and transferring digital assets. It works with several other cryptocurrencies, but also with fiat currencies like the USD. Additionally, Stellar also works even with some commodity assets, like gold.
Stellar’s goal is similar to that of Ripple, at least when it comes to enabling faster and better cross-border transactions. While Ripple focuses on providing its services to banks and financial institutions, Stellar aims to provide these services to individual investors. Thanks to this, Stellar has received a lot of attention and praise from individual investors, as the general interest in cryptocurrencies grew.
Why is this partnership important?
By joining Hyperion’s…
