EmerCoin (EMC) is a cryptocurrency that is in some ways similar to Namecoin (NMC) and Peercoin (PPC). It was launched in December 2013 and announced three days before launch in order to notify miners in advance.

EMC offers distributed blockchain services for business and personal use that is easy and low cost. In addition to being used for the payment of goods and services, Emercoin provides a platform for a wealth of novel applications such as decentralized domain names and advertising networks.

Emercoin employs both proof-of-work (PoW) mining and proof-of-stake (PoS) minting and uses SHA-256 hashes. EMC is a blockchain platform for a wide range of distributed trusted services. Distinctive features include – high reliability, robustness and 3-in-one hybrid mining (PoW + MergedMining + PoS). Currently, the Emercoin platform already runs network security services EmerSSL/EmerSSH, decentralized domain system EmerDNS, counterfeit solution EmerDPO, VOIP solution ENUMER and bundle of other services.

Developers propose Emercoin as a foundation for multiple possible services, rather than simply a currency:

Oleg Khovayko, Emercoin Lead Developer, has stated, “Key difference in Emercoin from other cryptocurrencies is that we are using blockchain not just for transfer credit values. We consider Emercoin as a technological platform for distributed, censorship–proof and scalable services. So we developed a suite of services running on top of the Emercoin blockchain that will be very useful for a lot of companies and even private persons.”

With that in the rear-view, let’s take a look at EMC from a technical perspective to see what may be in store moving forward.

As we can observe from the daily chart above, EMC continues to trade below both its 50 (blue line) as well as its 200 (red line) day moving averages, depicting and unfavorable intermediate and long-term technical posture from the daily time-frame.

However, while the overall cryptocurrency climate has found itself in deterioration mode these past several months and weeks, EMC has managed to trade slightly above and below its 20 (yellow line) day moving average, continuing to do battle as well as attempting to base.

Thus, while the climate remains tenuous at best, EMC is starting to show some signs that the worst may be behind it, although, should overall market conditions deteriorate in the days/weeks ahead, EMC would more than likely follow the path of least resistance along with the entire space.

Nevertheless, we believe that EMC deserves both investors/traders attention at present and may want to consider the following levels for further evidence/clues with respect to short-term direction.

If at any point in the days ahead, EMC is capable of going topside of the 2.85 level, such development, should it materialize, would most likely be the trigger that higher prices may be in the offing with a potential 4 – 4.10 price objective. On the other side of the ledger, both investors and particularly short-term traders may want to utilize the 2 – 2.10 zone as potential short-term support.

In essence, should overall market conditions begin to show some signs of healthy life, EMC may just warrant the attention of both investors/traders.

Therefore, for those aggressive investors/traders who are risk averse, you may want to put EMC on watch, front-and-center on your radars for a potential move in the days ahead, utilizing proper risk management measures, as always.

Happy Trading!!

As the crypto markets move closer to mass adoption, one of the keys for future success will revolve around attracting as many market participants as possible.  While many crypto users are extremely tech oriented, a lot of those on the sidelines are not.  The cause of waiting on the sidelines could be due to a variety of reasons such as fear of the unknown, lack of knowledge, age, or a combination of all of the above.  In order to entice new users to join the crypto revolution, crypto ATMs are rising up across the country.  Of those, the largest and most influential crypto ATM company by a significant margin is CoinFlip.

While Bitcoin (BTC) continues to hover around the magical 10,000 price level, altcoins continue to fight an uphill battle.  Simply put, hopes of a future bull run continue to diminish as Bitcoin maintains its dominance.  One school of thought is that a few altcoins will survive and flourish, but which ones are anyone’s guess.  That being said, it’s hard to go wrong picking against the top coins like Ethereum (ETH), Ripple (XRP), Litecoin (LTC), and EOS.  These projects have managed to find a foothold in the market and have a better chance than most of staying there.  While traders wait for their positions to increase in value, one opportunity that may be worth looking at is initiating a collateralized debt position.

What is a Cryptocurrency CDP?

In traditional terms, a CDP is essentially putting up collateral in order to receive a loan against the deposited amount.  There are several examples of this in our day to day lives.  Auto title loans from large companies like TitleMax are extremely popular with consumers.  Consumers are essentially able to use their car as collateral in exchange for a cash payment which can then be used for whatever needs the consumer has.  The consumer can continue using their car as long as debt payments are made.

The same concept applies to cryptocurrency CDPs.  Consumers are able to put up crypto tokens, such as…

I’m sure all of us remember the cryptocurrency glory days of 2017 and early 2018.  It was one of the biggest bull runs in history and created incredibly wealth for quite a few early entrants.  Unfortunately, for most of us, those gains have most likely been wiped out during the altcoin apocalypse.  The truth is that traders probably thought a bit too highly of their trading abilities when the reality was that anyone could have thrown a dart at a board and ended up making money.

As markets mature (and the crypto market is definitely maturing) it becomes more and more difficult to generate alpha.  In that regard, it’s similar to traditional financial markets.  I can remember trading during my high school days.  It was the late 90s and right in the middle of the dot.com boom.  Eventually, however, the euphoria fades away and reality hits hard.  Now, it’s become rather difficult to actually trade profitably which has given way to the rise of hedge funds.

Hedge funds are investment funds that pool capital from accredited and/or institutional investors and invest in a variety of assets, often with extremely complex portfolio-construction and risk management techniques.  The professionals employed by hedge funds are the best of the best and have spent years honing their craft.  That is why they’re able to make the millions of dollars that they normally…
