Today, we’re going to take a close look at two charts that bear some clear resemblance within the spectrum of large market Coins in the crypto complex right now.
Both Ripple (XRP) and Stellar (XLM) are in wide-swinging trading ranges, or consolidative patterns, in the wake of the energetic mania style bull market that we saw to close out 2017. And both of them may be said to be in relatively bearish postures at present, however, with the potential to inflect and thereby exemplify and highlight what could be interpreted as powerful accumulation bids by strong hands setting the terms of support at key levels.
The most important feature that would mark such a shift would first be signaled by an exhaustion of the selling force that has defined this bearish trend for most of this year to date.
- High: $0.45184
- Low: $0.44020
- Major Resistance Level: $0.47
- Hourly MACD: Steady Downside Momentum
Ripple (XRP) has established clear and important support around the $0.45 level. This level was established as a level of interest earlier this year when the coin made its lows toward the end of March and the beginning of April. We have now begun to test that level and slightly break underneath it, as we formulate the action for June and July.
This is a critical stage for XRP. As the pattern evolves, one no doubt can see the potential for something similar to a descending triangle pattern underway at a relatively significant time frame.
Under most circumstances, such a pattern has bearish implications. However, it can also be an exceedingly bullish pattern if the attempt to follow through on the downside is denied, thereby highlighting the importance of the level for deep-pocketed bulls who have begun to move in and accumulate this coin.
While we don’t yet see the signals that would differentiate these outcomes in the case of XRP, we do know that recent lows have been exemplified by oversold readings on a number of different important technical oscillators, suggesting that downside momentum has at the very least stalled out.
Selling pressure may well resume, but the region on the XRP chart defining the recent lows toward the end of June should be marked out with a close eye as it can define a reasonable risk point for speculative entries in Ripple (XRP) right now.
- High: $0.196650
- Low: $0.183387
- Major Resistance Level: $0.215
- Hourly MACD: Oversold on Sharp Momentum
When we look closely at the Stellar (XLM) chart, we see something quite similar to the picture we find in many different coin charts at present: an important low toward the end of the first fiscal quarter that is being retested in recent action.
This process can be viewed a couple of different ways. From one point of view, it’s precisely what you may expect as part of the procession of a bear market. Levels get established, and then they get broken.
But that’s exactly where this type of chart becomes very interesting.
It is, in fact, an important technical testing ground. One assumes that the level being tested represents a spot on the chart – a price level – where we previously saw a large supportive bid enter the complex has a whole, and in Stellar (XLM), in particular.
And that’s where the testing process bears itself out as such an important feature in the construction of a technical chart pattern: if we see XLM attempt to break below that level and effectively fail at that breakdown, then we may, in fact, be seeing an important low come into place that offers a sound entry point for aspiring bulls to get involved with defined risk.

XNO Token of Xeno NFT Hub listed on Bithumb Korea Exchange
Hong Kong, Hong Kong, 25th January, 2021, // ChainWire //
Xeno Holdings Limited (xno.live ), a blockchain solutions company based in Hong Kong, has announced the listing of its ecosystem utility token XNO on the ‘Bithumb Korea’ cryptocurrency exchange on January 21st 2021.
Xeno NFT Hub (market.xno.live ), developed by Xeno Holdings, enables easy minting of digital items into NFTs while also providing a marketplace where anyone can securely trade NFTs.
The Xeno NFT Hub project team includes former members of the technology project Yosemite X based in San Francisco and professionals such as Gabby Dizon who is a games industry expert and NFT space influencer based in Southeast Asia.
NFT(Non-Fungible Token) technology has recently gained huge focus in the blockchain arena and beyond, making waves in the online gaming sector, the art world, and the digital copyrights industry in recent years. The strongest feature of NFTs is that “NFTs are unique digital assets that cannot be replaced or forged”. Unlike fungible tokens such as Bitcoin or Ether, NFTs are not interchangeable for other tokens of the same type but instead each NFT has a unique value and specific information that cannot be replaced. This fact makes NFTs the perfect solution to record and prove ownership of digital and real-world items like works of art, game items, limited-edition collectibles, and more.
NFTs are already being actively traded in markets globally. For…
Should Crypto Projects Devote Resources to Community Growth and Marketing?
2020 has been an incredible year for crypto as investors have generated windfall profits and crypto projects have seen their businesses gain the spotlight they’ve been looking for. While Bitcoin has received most of the attention after major institutional investors announced they were accumulating the increasingly scarce asset, many altcoins have also seen their fair share of glory. When looking at all the big winners of the past year, the first project that probably comes to mind is Chainlink, having appreciated by more than 550% YTD and now valued at over $4.5 billion. But, the actual biggest winner of the year is HEX with a YTD return of over 5,000%.
I mention both of the above projects as they have each taken slightly different paths to achieve greatness. Chainlink has devoted resources toward building a fundamentally sound business with many strategic partnerships while HEX has spent vast sums of money on marketing and promotion. Both approaches are valid, but one thing is certain, it is absolutely imperative for crypto projects to let the crypto community know what makes them special. Of course, one of the reasons that makes crypto so valuable is the powerful blockchain technology that most projects are utilizing.
Cryptocurrency vs. Blockchain Technology
It’s important to make a distinction between blockchain technology and cryptocurrency. Although they are often used interchangeably, they are different. Blockchain technology and crypto were both created after the 2008 financial crisis, but cryptocurrency…

He also added “This does not mean we will prohibit other types of NFTs from our ecosystem However, it simply means that XENO’s efforts as a company will be targeted into these verticals initially as a cohesive business approach.”
