The crypto market recently saw quite a rally, with nearly every cryptocurrency in the space experiencing massive gains. However, one of the early coins to blow up was actually a privacy coin, Dash (DASH), which surged by 9% and became one of the rally leaders.

The growth started during the early Asian hours on Monday, April 1st, when DASH spiked to reach the market cap of $932 million, while its trading volume went up to $296 million. Meanwhile, its price went up from around $106.45 on March 31st to $118.94.

Soon after the initial burst, DASH started losing the momentum, and its price actually saw a minor correction which brought it back down to $116. However, this was when the rest of the market joined in, and the bull run took Dash up to its highest point in 2019 — $135.

Dash reached this price on April 3rd, two days after the initial surge, which is when the bull run started losing strength as well, causing a number of coins to experience corrections. Dash was among them as well, although its drop from $135 got softened by a strong resistance at $120. After the correction had ended, DASH price was still well above its highest point prior to the industry-wide rally.

DASH bounces off after a small correction

At the time of writing, DASH is seeing growth once again, with its price currently sitting at $131.19, with 3.14% growth in the last 24 hours. And, while this growth is against the USD, DASH is also holding its own against BTC as well, with the price of 0.02636302 BTC at the time of writing, after 3.50% growth in the past 24 hours.

The coin is also seeing quite a lot of usage, judging by its trading volume that spiked to $366.2 million in the last day. Meanwhile, its market cap at the moment sits at $1.140 billion. However, even with the market cap of this size, Dash still remains at the 14th place on the list of largest cryptocurrencies by market cap, indicating that the entire market is performing much better than only a week ago.

In fact, IOTA (MIOTA), which currently occupies the 15th spot on the list, is the first coin with a market cap below $1 billion, although even MIOTA is quite close to this milestone, with the current market cap of $967.17 million.

What is next for DASH?

As for DASH, the coin continues to grow, currently making another attempt at breaching the $135 level. It is difficult to say whether or not it will be successful at doing it, as the barrier stands strong, acting as a major resistance for DASH. However, it is not impossible for the coin to break through, as its already did the same with another massive resistance level at $120, seemingly without much effort.

If DASH price does get rejected when it approaches the $135 resistance, it will likely experience a correction which should not be a major one, but it might still push the coin’s price back down towards the support at $120. However, it is also very likely that DASH price might simply remain below the resistance, and wait for the next market-wide rally to start.

Whatever happens next, DASH is currently at the levels that were not seen since the mid-November market crash, which is certainly encouraging for investors and traders, and its current behavior indicates that its price is ready to continue the growth.

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…
