The cryptocurrency market continues to be on a dip (again), a move that, by far, has been the most historically pronounced in the sector. Naturally, this has affected each and every one of the cryptos, but ones more than others have shown worrying behaviors that have caused panic and despair among the community, and to say the least, the speculative tendency does not seem to have a near ending.

In this sense, last week two of the most remarkable examples were Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH), coins that despite being the top 2 of the market haven’t been able to avoid the bearish performance of the cryptosphere. This time, another two that seem to be on the same path are without a doubt Ripple (XRP) and Litecoin (LTC), cryptos that belong as well to the crypto hall of fame. Let’s see the key points behind the most recent crypto trends.

Ripple (XRP): The bearish tendency continues

Ripple (XRP) has decreased 85% percent from its highest value set in January this year, and as it seems, the tendency is going to continue bearish, so the possibilities of reaching even lower values are very high. In fact, the token set the long-term objective at the second half of last year to hit the 25-cent mark, which at the moment remains active, a fact that will represent -48% from the actual price or -92% from its highest price of January.

In the meantime, a pattern is recognizable at first sight and is the tendency to have both lower lows and highs compared to the values that were reached by the token in May. Although it is still not discarded the possibility of a rebound like the one that we observed between April and May, even when possible the most likely to occur later is a drop of the prices one more time.

Litecoin (LTC) goes down below the trend-line resistance

The 100 line of Litecoin (LTC) recently broke and showed with it pessimistic results that even suggested the possibility of a more significant decrease. It is still not determined what will be the target of the downside unlike with Ripple (XRP), but as it is prognosticated, it will have even more remarkable repercussions, positioning down below the 40s or even worse.

The token will find support later around the 69 line, and even further on the 50. For its part, the trend-line resistance created in the peak of May was recently identified on some of the trades made, so this will serve as a guide to predict the behavior of the crypto in the mid-term.

Conclusion

The panorama for the cryptocurrency world is not the best as of now, and speculation is one of the things that have been affecting the most the market. Whether this will be a repetitive pattern still remains a question, but whether one has invested in Ripple and Litecoin or not, best thing as of now is to stay calm and see the next steps of the sector.

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.

ICTE May Bring About Sweeping Changes for Cryptocurrency Exchanges

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…
