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.

Investors Beware: Another Large Bitcoin Crash Might Be Coming

The crypto prices have surged quite high in the last few months. Of course, their progress is nowhere near the one seen in 2017, but they appear to be getting there, one day at the time. However, things might not be as simple as that, and according to recent performance — it is more than possible that a major Bitcoin crash is incoming.

The fact is that cryptos saw a massive amount of growth in a very short period. Bitcoin itself more than doubled its price in only two months. Now, the rally is starting to crash in on itself, and the coin is already about $1,000 lower than last week. If such development does come to pass, a lot of people will experience quite large losses, although experienced investors might find some opportunities, and leverage in order to enhance their holdings’ long-term value.

For example, Bitcoin dominance is expected to crash very quickly, which will work in favor of quite a lot of altcoins. While this does not seem to be the best time to invest in BTC, altcoins are another story, and diversifying a portfolio now might end up being very profitable in days to come.

Bitcoin behavior mirrors the pre-bear market situation

The crash that analysts are predicting right now comes as a direct consequence of all the hype that has been building up in…

Crypto bulls are back, that much is clear. The long-lasting, harsh crypto winter is gone, and the new era in digital currency sector opens up some rather interesting opportunities. With many more bull runs expected to come in months ahead, a lot of coins are likely to blow up and maybe even hit new all-time highs, although that still remains purely theoretical.

On the other hand, the fact is that numerous coins are seeing prices that were not achieved since early 2018, and the overall momentum remains bullish. With that in mind, even if new records do not come for a very long time — chances are that many of the coins will blow up enough for investors to see some serious gains in months to come. As a result, investing in some of these coins now might be a very profitable decision, for those who have the patience to wait a few months. Here are some of the projects believed to have the greatest potential to go big in the second half of 2019 and beyond.

1. TRON (TRX)

Putting TRON on the list should not really surprise anyone, as the project constantly comes up with new project updates, partnerships, and alike. It also constantly breaks records, as is becoming one of the biggest players in the dApp and smart contract development sector.

In the past few…

It is commonly known that the world of finances has the biggest problem with the crime of all existing industries around the world. It has been so throughout history. While the financial world has evolved, so did the criminal activities, and they continue to be an issue. With the arrival of cryptocurrencies, many were hoping that financial crime might be disrupted. However, for now, at least, it appears that cryptos themselves cannot find a way to resolve issues such as international money laundering.

In fact, when it comes to money laundering, the crypto sector appears to be the weakest link, especially because of the nature of digital currencies. The anonymity that cryptos are being praised for means that anyone can get a payment from an unknown source from anywhere in the world. This method can then be used for financing drug trafficking, cyberattacks, terrorists, and more.

Until recently, it was not easy for bad actors to make use of cryptocurrencies obtained for illegal purposes. The number of merchants willing to accept the coins was low, and criminals were forced to find a way to exchange crypto into fiat currencies. However, this came with a set of issues, such as taking foreign exchange risks and then sending the money through wallets and exchanges to a banking system that would allow withdrawal. The banking account was the biggest obstacle here,…
