There are no two ways about it: the recent thrust higher in the crypto space is finally up against a test that isn’t just about technical resistance. This time, it’s about news flow.
That provides us with an opportunity to gauge the true nature of this action. For a technician, everything the outside world brings to his mill is grist. In this case, that is clearly an advantage for those able to remain dispassionate and observant.
- High: $0.3086
- Low: $0.3000
- Major Resistance Level: $0.35
- Hourly MACD: Working Off Recent Overbought Extreme
When you talk about outperformers, Stellar (XLM) should come near the top of the list in terms of how it has behaved in the context of recent strength across the cryptocurrency space over the past couple of weeks.
We have seen this coin find sharp and strong-handed support down at the $0.18 level, and subsequently rally with extraordinary momentum, pushing just shy of 100% in total net percentage change in less than three weeks’ time.
Stellar (XLM) represents yet another case of a double bottom low formed at the trough confluence defining the late June and mid-July lows. This has been a pattern we have witnessed in many different coins, but one that has been capitalized on to a far greater extent in Stellar (XLM).
At this point, those involved in XLM during this “regulatory“ pullback suffered over recent hours should be looking for support to come into play somewhere between $0.28 and $0.30.
- High: $0.165
- Low: $0.160
- Major Resistance Level: $0.20
- Hourly MACD: Tight consolidation
Cardano (ADA) provides another interesting example of a coin that many might overlook during the course of recent strength as it has seemed – purely in terms of chart pattern – to play the role of a bit of a laggard.
However, a closer look would suggest that Cardano (ADA) has performed quite admirably during the flood of enthusiasm for the crypto space that we’ve witnessed over the past three weeks.
In fact, ADA has ramped almost 60% in that time, breaking through a number of key technical barriers in the process.
All of this has been fueled by the coin’s ability to hold a slightly higher low relative to its late June lows when it pushed back above the $0.13 level on July 13.
Crucially, this higher low was in line with previous support formed during late March and early April and was also mirrored by a strong bullish divergence showing up in the 14-day RSI oscillator.
Looking ahead, ADA’s ability to hold firm to support in the region of the $0.15 level will be critical as we gauge the staying power of this recent rally.

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…

“NFTs are extremely flexible in their usage, from digital event tickets to artwork, and while NFTs have a very wide spectrum of uses and categories XENO will initially focus its partnership efforts and its own item curation on three primary areas: gaming, sports & entertainment, and collectibles.”, said XENO NFT Hub president Anthony Di Franco.
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.”
Development and Procurement Lead, Gabby Dizon explained, “Despite our initial focus, we found ourselves with a unique opportunity to host some of the works of Mr. Hiro Yamagata. We are collaborating with Japanese artist Hiro Yamagata to enshrine some of his artwork into NFTs.”
