EOS (EOS) Just Moved A Step Closer To Killing Off Ethereum (ETH)

EOS (EOS) is the number nine ranked cryptocurrency by market capitalization right now, priced at $12.36 for a capitalization of a little over $7.6 billion. Over the last 24 hours, we’ve seen a large spike in volume, with the coin trading more than $2 billion across its primary exchanges since this time yesterday and looking set to reach if not exceed this number heading into the middle of this week.

Anybody who has spent a bit of time in the space will likely already be familiar with what EOS is trying to achieve – the company behind the token has developed a platform that it expects will overtake Ethereum as the primary decentralized application technology globally over the next few years.

This is one of those claims that seems outlandish at first glance but, when you look at the technology that underpins what EOS has developed, and, at the same time, when you look at the milestones that the company has achieved to date, the claim goes from being outlandish to being one that a large portion of the space cannot afford to ignore.

There’s also something else we like about this one.

Take a look at the chart below.

It’s very rare that you see this sort of neat bullish setup on a cryptocurrency chart – at least, that is, on the wider time frames. In the equities markets, a chart like the above EOS chart would have shorter-term traders chomping at the bit to pick up an exposure at current depressed prices in anticipation of the coin continuing to record fresh higher highs and higher lows as part of its overarching upside trend.

Combine this with the above-mentioned volume spike and things become even more attractive.

But that’s not all.

Block.One, which is the company behind the EOS technology, just announced the creation of a fund to exclusively invest in opportunities leveraging EOS.IO software. This is the first announcement for the company’s EOS VC partnership program to stimulate EOS.IO innovation and, importantly, it comes as part of a partnership (as in the company is seeding the fund in collaboration with) TomorrowBC. Think you’ve heard that name before? You probably have. Derek Rundell, a managing partner of Eric Schmidt’s venture firm, TomorrowVentures, is the Managing Partner of TomorrowBC.

We already know that Schmidt, billionaire and Executive Chairman of Alphabet, is a big fan of the potential of blockchain technology and that TomorrowBC is seeding a fund with Block.One creates a direct link between the Google billionaire and the company EOS technology.

That’s big news for any company but for one that’s positioned as Block.One is, it’s a very important development. It’s a strong validation of the technology but, beyond that, it’s also an indication that EOS might finally be making good on its potential and stepping on Ethereum’s toes in this sector.

Keep in mind that the EOS technology is in its early iteration right now, with the EOS.IO Testnet having been launched at the start of last month.

With that said, decentralized applications are being built on the Testnet as we speak and, as each of these completes and builds out the EOS ecosystem, the company behind the technology is only going to attract increased attention in the sector.

And as we know all too well, it doesn’t take much in terms of mainstream coverage to really get a coin moving in this space.

Bottom line: not only is this one technically poised for a run based on the above-illustrated chart but it’s making strides fundamentally to position itself a real force in the cryptocurrency revolution.

Investors Beware: Another Large Bitcoin Crash Might Be Coming

The crypto prices have surged quite high in the last few months. Of course, their progress is nowhere near the one seen in 2017, but they appear to be getting there, one day at the time. However, things might not be as simple as that, and according to recent performance — it is more than possible that a major Bitcoin crash is incoming.

The fact is that cryptos saw a massive amount of growth in a very short period. Bitcoin itself more than doubled its price in only two months. Now, the rally is starting to crash in on itself, and the coin is already about $1,000 lower than last week. If such development does come to pass, a lot of people will experience quite large losses, although experienced investors might find some opportunities, and leverage in order to enhance their holdings’ long-term value.

For example, Bitcoin dominance is expected to crash very quickly, which will work in favor of quite a lot of altcoins. While this does not seem to be the best time to invest in BTC, altcoins are another story, and diversifying a portfolio now might end up being very profitable in days to come.

Bitcoin behavior mirrors the pre-bear market situation

The crash that analysts are predicting right now comes as a direct consequence of all the hype that has been building up in…

Bitcoin is soaring high in the cryptomarket once again, and experts are expecting a return of the bullish trend of 2017. The current Bitcoin price is $7,615 as of 23 May 6:56 AM UTC. This significant jump comes just six months after the Bitcoin price plummeted to a low of $3150 in December 2018. Since then, Bitcoin has experienced steady growth and gain in the market. However, in the last 30 days, the Bitcoin price peaked to $8,320.82, its highest price ever. This phenomenal jump occurred in a span of only 10 days breaking the Bitcoin record so far of significant gains made in short time frames. This positive growth has led to experts forecasting the Bitcoin price to hit the $20,000 mark by the end of this year.

Since entering the market almost 11 years ago, Bitcoin is still at the top of the global cryptocurrencies list. The current circulating supply of Bitcoin is at unbelievable 17,708,875 BTC. The market trend of the Bitcoin price has remained positive even when the currency did not maintain an uptrend. Cryptocurrency researchers believe that Bitcoin has the potential to grow up to a high of USD 50,000 within the next two years.

The crypto market is going through a period of massive recovery in the past few months, which has caused the investors’ optimism to return. While all eyes are on Bitcoin (BTC), as usual, the largest coin seems to be struggling with a major resistance level at $8,000 at the moment. While this level was breached a few times now, every breach resulted in a correction.

At the time of writing, BTC is approaching this level yet again, with its current price being at $7,985,79, and rising further. The price managed to grow by 1.06% in the last 24 hours, and will undoubtedly hit $8,000 in a matter of hours, if not sooner.

However, while Bitcoin continues to remain volatile and struggles with waves of growth and decline, there are some altcoins that are not following its path. Of course, most of them are performing in pretty much the same manner as BTC, as they always had. But, a few coins have actually managed to outperform Bitcoin in recent months.

While optimists believe that this might lead to decoupling from Bitcoin — something that only Binance Coin (BNB) managed to pull off up to this point — it is likely that there will be consequences for these cryptos. This likely means that a price drop for these specific coins awaits somewhere in the near future, as outperforming BTC…
