When we presented our analysis last week, we suggested that some coins were more technically vulnerable while others would be tough to break down. The two coins we have on tap for today’s analysis – IOTA and Cardano (ADA) – represent one of each of these classes.

But, as many long-time HODLers know, when it rains it pours. No matter which class you have been in, the action over the past few days has been blood red. Now, it’s time to take a look at what comes next.

IOTA

Price Analysis

  • High: $0.65276
  • Low: $0.60641
  • 24-Hour Volume: $70.50M
  • 7-day Percent Change: -30.2%

As noted above, IOTA represented one of the most technically vulnerable coins to us in our analysis last week. The key here was the very clear descending bearish triangle that had come into place on the charts since late June.

IOTA began creeping down towards what is known as the bearish trigger line earlier this month. When that trigger line snapped, we saw some gyrations and, ultimately, down the drain it went.

As technical analysts are fond of saying, prior support becomes new resistance. All that really means is this: if we see a bounce, it may be awfully difficult for IOTA to climb back above the $0.90 level.

That said, those hanging onto this one would be awfully glad to even get the chance to watch it fail at that level at this point. Principal support in place right now in this chart is at the $0.60 level. A break underneath that could really empty things out for IOTA.

Cardano (ADA)

Price Analysis

  • High: $0.11578
  • Low: $0.11277
  • 24-Hour Volume: $79.04M
  • 7-day Percent Change: -16.59%

Cardano (ADA) had been trading with at least a mild degree of relative strength during the majority of trading in June.

However, once things rolled over, clear support levels such as the coin’s 50-day simple moving average were taken out relatively easily.

The decline that we have seen off of the July highs in Cardano (ADA) is now a relatively clear Elliott wave impulse formation, separated into five waves that may be nearing completion or already completed.

That meshes well with our read of support, which comes in at the June lows at a pivot around the $0.11 level. We splashed below that briefly yesterday in ADA, but are trying to claw back now into positive territory. If we get some momentum coming on the upside, look for the $0.13 level to provide resistance.

Happy Trading~

How is the Crypto Market Changing?

It has been around a month and a half since the start of 2019, and there are already some pretty obvious changes in the way the crypto market operates, especially when compared to the last year. Early 2018 was almost a complete opposite. The previous year started with cryptocurrencies at their strongest, only to see them crashing down after a few weeks. Back then, the ICO model was still quite strong, and so was the hype surrounding the crypto space. New investors kept entering the space, and new startups emerged with their tokens ready to be sold.

As the year progressed, things started to change. The prices continued to drop, the ICO model went down from around $1.4 billion in raised funds at the beginning of the year to only $100 million in the last month.

The ICO model lost investors’ trust, as many of the projects turned out to be either too weak to survive after the crypto winter struck, or scams which tricked investors out of their money and disappeared. Not to mention that the increase in ICOs popularity attracted the regulators who cracked down on them pretty hard, especially in the US.

With all of that happening, it is of a small surprise that the investors started giving up on ICOs, especially with the constant drops in prices which saw even the largest coins…

Understanding the Uses of Different Types Of Cryptocurrencies

Cryptocurrencies – a term which has become incredibly prominent in the mainstream media during recent years due to the proliferation of Bitcoin millionaires. As a result, the new form of currency has earned an almost infamous status. However, as with any major step forward, there is still much confusion regarding the use of cryptocurrencies, what different types of innovative electronic cash exist and what they might mean for the future.

We’re putting all of this to rest as we explain what each of the leading cryptocurrencies can do.

Bitcoin

The most popular form of cryptocurrency, Bitcoin was first thought up in 2008 by the elusive and still unknown creator, Satoshi Nakamoto, who published the whitepaper online.

It took almost a decade for the cryptocurrency to reach its peak, but in December 2017 a single Bitcoin roughly exchanged for the price of $17,000, meaning anyone who held a substantial amount of the electronic cash became significantly wealthy.

In its early years, the cryptocurrency was strictly used as an alternative for cash transactions, and predominantly for trading goods and services. However as it has increased in popularity, its range of uses has also widened, now deployed for a variety of purposes including acting as collateral for investments at merchant banks, a direct debit for subscriptions services and most notably for sports betting.

New DoJ Ruling May Cripple Gambling dApps

A new decision made by the US Justice Department has expanded restrictions regarding online gambling in the US affecting gambling dApps. While the Federal Wire Act of 1961 prohibited online gambling regarding sports since 2011, the new decision expanded on this, and it now includes all forms of internet gambling. Unfortunately for many, this now also includes cryptocurrencies.

The new decision came due to considerable difficulties when it comes to guaranteeing that only interstate betting will take place and that payments will not be routed via different states.

The new announcement was explained in a 23-page-long opinion issued by the Department of Justice’s legal team, which pointed out that the 2011 decision misinterpreted the law. According to that decision, transferring funds was to be considered a violation, but data transfers were not included. By exploiting this oversight, it was possible for gamblers to turn to internet gambling. Unsurprisingly, many have realized this early on, including startups, as well as large, established firms. This, of course, also included cryptocurrency companies as well.
