Examining the recent strength of the cryptocurrency complex can provide some interesting insights. First of all, the space can clearly be divided into the leaders and laggards. Such should be defined on merely technical grounds when making comparisons based on an asset class-wide dynamic.

Today’s pair of coins – Stellar (XLM) and Cardano (ADA) – provide excellent examples of this set of concepts.

Stellar (XLM)

Price Analysis:

  • High: $0.3443
  • Low: $0.3323
  • Major Resistance Level: $0.35
  • Hourly MACD: Recent Overbought Extreme

Stellar (XLM) has been on fire, up as much as 75% since the middle of this month.

For those who have been buying into the pullback in Stellar (XLM) off of its May highs, this action is decidedly welcome.

The coin has blasted off through its major moving averages, to test and even exceed the 200-day simple moving average on an intraday basis.

This brings into play the potential for a run at very important resistance at the $0.50 level, but it will need to get through the $0.35 level on a closing basis to set that in motion first.

Cardano (ADA)

Price Analysis:

  • High: $0.176
  • Low: $0.171
  • Major Resistance Level: $0.20
  • Hourly MACD: Emerging Trend Change Potential

Cardano (ADA) is coming off of the recent stronghold of support in the $0.12 area.

Recent action has included a higher-low pivot point following a lower-low test of the March lows. This is an extremely compelling combination of swings because it suggests weaker hands have already been kicked off the bus before stronger hands came in and started to support the pattern with resolve.

This is exactly the type of dynamic that we look for when reviewing any chart from a technical standpoint.

In addition, following a nice RSI divergence at the lows, the establishment of a higher low, and a breakout above the key 50-day simple moving average, we now see a clear and sharp rise in average trading volume over the past few days.

At this point, all the signs are in place for a possible run at a fresh test of the territory above the $0.20 level for Cardano (ADA).

Happy Trading~

There has been a lot of renewed enthusiasm in the cryptocurrency market thanks mainly to Bitcoin’s strong move about 10,000.  Although Bitcoin continues to show its dominance, the altcoin market has yet to benefit from that rally.  A few of the largest altcoins remain popular but the rest of the market continues to lag behind.  In 2018, there was a lot of talk regarding a possible altcoin apocalypse where only the strong would survive.  That prediction appears to be playing out as expected.  Going forward, only the best projects that have a real world need will survive.  Crypto traders will have to spend a lot of their time doing proper research in order to find the best opportunities, just like in all financial markets.  One promising project that appears to have the makings of a future winner is KaratGold Coin.

KaratGold Background

Cryptocurrency has taken the world by storm during the last few years. An entirely new financial market was created almost overnight which has captured the imagination of all its participants. Cryptocurrency is even starting to attract institutional money from investment banks, hedge funds, and other proprietary trading firms. Despite the rapid growth, traders remain extremely frustrated by having to deal with the fragmented nature of centralized crypto exchanges.

A Change is Needed

When cryptocurrency first began, there weren’t many participants and the trading volume was relatively insignificant. But, over time, that has radically changed. Some tokens now have a capitalization in the billions and are being traded 24-7 by institutions all over the world. Despite the volume, significant problems exist with the current way that exchanges work. Some of those problems include the following:

  • Constant fear of hackers
  • Exchange manipulation
  • Fragmented liquidity
  • Risk of identity theft

One of the biggest issues regarding centralized exchanges is the risk of being hacked. These hack stories seem to always be circulating around the internet. While experienced traders may have the tools to avoid becoming a victim, potential new traders have zero interest in dealing with this. And it’s not just the small exchanges that are at risk. Even large exchanges, such as Mt. Gox and Binance, are subject to being hacked.

Another huge risk is having to deal with…

SonicX and Dash Could Challenge Facebook’s Libra for Global Payments Market Share

When Satoshi Nakamoto unveiled Bitcoin to the world, the dream was always for Bitcoin to serve as a new universal currency.  It would be free from the bureaucracy of governments.  And free from the tyranny of the old-world financial cartels.  Although the dream hasn’t yet materialized, it comes closer and closer with each passing day.

One of the biggest roadblocks for Bitcoin has been scalability.  At a speed of approximately 7 transactions per second, Bitcoin lags behind other cryptocurrencies like Ripple and global payment processors like Visa.  Many expect the lightning network to have a positive impact on Bitcoin’s TPS but until that comes to fruition, mass adoption will likely need another significant development.

Libra Currency Announcement

One development that could help pave the way toward mass adoption is the launch of the Libra currency.  Libra is expected to go live during the first half of 2020 according to Facebook’s June announcement.  According to Facebook, Libra will make sending money online cheaper and faster.  It will also have a hand in improving access to financial services, especially for the unbanked.  Given Facebook’s global reach, including many third world countries, providing financial access to the unbanked could provide a huge spark to global economies.  Additionally, it could provide the growth spark that cryptocurrency needs.

Facebook’s most popular messenger, WhatsApp, has approximately 1.5 billion monthly users.  This application is…
