Op Ed: Why Bitcoin’s “Toxic” Maximalism Makes Sense

Over the years, Bitcoin has gained a reputation for having a “toxic” community of users around it. This accusation is mostly thrown at Bitcoin by proponents of altcoins and those who have supported various Bitcoin hard fork attempts in the past.Of course, this is an oversimplification of the Bitcoin community. Crypto Twitter, which is the main hub of online cryptocurrency conversations these days, does not make up anywhere near the entire Bitcoin user base. When people talk about the Bitcoin community being toxic, they’re mostly complaining that some Bitcoin users were mean to them on the internet.Having said that, there is a logical reason that some Bitcoin users get extremely angry at certain members of the greater crypto asset community.What’s With the Hostility, Man?Bitcoin is defined by a set of protocol rules. It is these rules, which are effectively set in stone (see: Satoshi), that provide the underlying value proposition of Bitcoin. Bitcoin’s most important feature is not necessarily its specific monetary policy (the 21 million cap) or any of the other specific rules. Instead, the fact that the rules are extremely difficult to change is the key selling point (I’ve written a longer explanation of this here).Of course, people could decide to abandon Bitcoin and go use something else (an altcoin or some forked version of Bitcoin), but that would necessitate the creation of a new network.With this in mind, it should become clear why attempts to change the rules of Bitcoin through social attacks are met with disgust. Attempting to use social clout or “thought leadership” in an effort to push users over to a new network with different rules undermines the underlying value proposition of this technology. While we're on the topic of #SegWit2x, it's important to point out that one of the key issues with the plan was that it was presented as a decree rather than a proposal. Kind of goes against the whole reason of why we're here in the first place.— Kyle Torpey (@kyletorpey) March 27, 2019 If something new were to overtake Bitcoin through pressure from a consortium of influential nodes on the network, then what’s to stop that from happening again with the new coin of the moment? Perhaps more importantly, will the new coin stick to the core ethos of Bitcoin as an apolitical store of value and medium of exchange? If Bitcoin is susceptible to this sort of persuasion from influential players in the space, then it’s unclear how different it is from the traditional financial system or non-cryptocurrencies like Ripple’s XRP.Bitcoin proved resistant to this sort of persuasion in the case of the New York Agreement, in which a consortium of economically relevant Bitcoin nodes and miners effectively got together to say some new fork of Bitcoin with a larger block size limit (which increases the cost of operating a full node) was going to be the new, official version of Bitcoin.It’s not a stretch to call the New York Agreement an attack on the whole point of Bitcoin existing in the first place. Various businesses built on top of Bitcoin were putting their own needs ahead of the viability of bitcoin as an apolitical money. Perhaps more importantly, they issued their plan as a decree rather than a proposal.Yes, those companies had users of their own to represent, but it’s possible that the power of users focused on the store-of-value use case were ignored in favor of those who put greater emphasis on the use of bitcoin as a medium of exchange.On Twitter, some signers of the New York Agreement referred to those who shared criticisms associated with the 2x portion of SegWit2x as toxic individuals.At the time, I wrote about how the creation of a federated sidechain may be a more sensible approach to the need to free up block space on the base of the Bitcoin blockchain. But the SegWit2x train had already left the station.Thankfully, the failure of SegWit2x ended up being nothing more than an illustration of the difficulties associated with pulling off social attacks on Bitcoin. The whole ordeal added credibility to the “digital gold” meme that had long been associated with bitcoin.Bitcoin’s current consensus rules are the Schelling point when people are unsure of what to do in the case of a network split, which makes it difficult for hard-forking changes to happen without widespread consensus. If there is going to be some kind of hard fork of the Bitcoin network, there better be a damned good reason to do so, such as a critical bug in consensus-related software. Otherwise, the “toxic trolls” are incentivized to respond to your attack on Bitcoin’s apolitical nature.With all of this in mind, the question must be asked: Who is really the toxic part of the Bitcoin community? Those who attempted to push users to a new network and call it “Bitcoin” or those who said some mean words on the internet?This is not to say every signatory of the New York Agreement is toxic. Some, such as Xapo CEO and PayPal board member Wences Casare

How The First BCH Halving Will Damage Its Security

Since it’s launch in 2017, Bitcoin Cash has got its own community but it still hasn’t got that wide-use when compared to say, Bitcoin or Ripple’s XRP. Aside from a brief bubble around the time of the hard fork, there hasn’t been a lot going on the Bitcoin Cash network. Despite being a top ten cryptocurrency, it seems pretty dead on the system. There might be more problems around the corner as the first halving of Bitcoin Cash is scheduled for about a year from now. This will have a side effect of weakening the security of the network. For those that don’t know, a halving event is when the block subsidy is cut in half (hence the name). It is also a part of Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash’s algorithmically-controlled monetary policies. Issuance rate During its initial launch, Bitcoin Cash used a new difficulty adjustment algorithm to make sure that the network didn’t come to a complete stop. This new difficulty adjustment algorithm had the side effect of increasing the monetary base at a rate faster than in Bitcoin as the rate at which blocks were mined became erratic. This unusual behaviour on the BCH network led to a big drop in the Bitcoin hashrate with miners seeing that it was more profitable to mine on the Bitcoin Cash network due to what essentially became a bigger cumulative block subsidy in the form of more rapidly-generated coins. “This had the side effect of slowing down the rate at which new blocks were mined on the Bitcoin network for a brief period of time.” In the end, the Bitcoin Cash network adopted a new and improved difficulty adjustment algorithm to get their blocks back to the originally intentioned ten-minute intervals. Looking to the future So next year, BCH is going to be facing a similar problem to that it made for Bitcoin in 2017. The block subsidy is only part of the overall block reward, with the rest of it coming by way of transaction fees, just to clarify. As reported by Long Hash, “Bitcoin Cash is already relatively unsecure in terms of its share of the SHA-256 hashing power on various cryptocurrency networks, and next year’s halving could make matters worse.”

Bitcoin Cash (BCH) Massive Uptrend Not Likely Over

Bitcoin cash price rallied this week and gained more than 100% against the US Dollar. The price climbed above the $300 and tested the $350 area before correcting lower. There is a major contracting triangle forming with support near $275 on the 4-hours chart of the BCH/USD pair (data feed from Kraken). The pair is likely to surge higher again if it breaks the $300 pivot level in the short term. Bitcoin cash price climbed higher significantly above $250 and $300 against the US Dollar. BCH tested the $350 level, corrected lower, and now preparing for the next break. Bitcoin Cash Price Analysis This week, there was a strong increase in bitcoin, ripple, Ethereum, and bitcoin cash against the US Dollar. Earlier, the BCH/USD pair formed a support base above the $140 and $150 levels. It traded in a range below the $170 level for a few sessions. Finally, buyers got into action and pushed the price above the $170 and $200 resistance levels. It resulted in a sharp upward move above the $250 and $300 resistance levels. The recent trend was such that the price even climbed above $325 and settled well above the 55 simple moving average (4-hours). It tested the $350 resistance and formed a high near $351. Recently, it corrected lower sharply below the $325 and $300 levels. There was a break below the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $164 swing low to $351 high. However, the price found a strong support near the $265-270 area. At the moment, there is a major contracting triangle forming with support near $275 on the 4-hours chart of the BCH/USD pair. If there is an upside break above the triangle and $300, the price might resume its upward move. The next immediate resistance is at $330, above which the price could revisit the $350 level. On the other hand, if there is a break below the $275 support area, the price might correct towards $260. Besides, the 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $164 swing low to $351 high is near $258 to act as strong support. Looking at the chart, bitcoin cash price clearly rallied significantly before correcting from the $350 resistance. Going forward, the price is likely to bounce back above $300 and $330. Conversely, a break below the $258 support might negate the current bullish structure in the near term. Technical indicators 4 hours MACD - The MACD for BCH/USD is likely to gain traction in the bullish zone. 4 hours RSI (Relative Strength Index) - The RSI for BCH/USD corrected lower, but it remains well above 50. Key Support Levels - $175 and $158. Key Resistance Levels - $300 and $330. The post Bitcoin Cash (BCH) Massive Uptrend Not Likely Over appeared first on Live Bitcoin News.

Litecoin’s [LTC] Charlie Lee responds to Michael Novogratz’s comments on silver coin

Galaxy Digital’s Michael Novogratz was in the news this week after he blasted Litecoin [LTC], calling it a ‘glorified testnet’ for Bitcoin [BTC]. Novogratz stated that the digital silver’s market cap was just 6.4% of BTC’s, mockingly claiming that actual silver was, at the very least, useful with respect to industrial production. Following this, Charlie Lee, the Creator of Litecoin, responded to Novogratz’s statements. Lee refuted Novogratz’s statements, claiming that he couldn’t “be more wrong”. Lee also ridiculed the former hedge fund manager’s statement about Litecoin and Bitcoin’s Lightning Network. He had claimed that BTC’s Lightning Network made Litecoin useless. Charlie Lee’s full tweet read, Source: Twitter Charlie Lee also proposed a solution for the high BTC fees. Lee shared the news of Boltz’s alpha release, an instant, account-free, and non-custodial digital asset exchange built on top of Bitcoin’s Lightning Network. The creator of Litecoin suggested the use of Boltz for on-chain submarine swaps from LTC to BTC. Using Boltz costs pennies and guarantees a transaction speed of no more than two-and-a-half minutes, he claimed. Charlie Lee’s response gained a lot of traction online, with many in the cryptocurrency community opining on the matter. Cobra, the co-owner of Bitcoin.org, commented, “Replace “Litecoin” with “Bitcoin Cash” and “LTC” with “BCH” and this reads exactly like a Roger Ver tweet. Only difference is Roger believes his own bullshit and didn’t dump all his BCH on his followers at the top.” Bull Bitcoin’s CEO, Francis Pouliot, commented, “Suckers. Thanks for losing your money for the benefit of bitcoiners!” There were some who defended Lee and Litecoin too. Twitter user, @JasonEbacher, responded, “Cobra, you forgot the part about LTC having segwit first & having lightning network, atomic swaps & soon to have confidential transactions... @satoshilite is nothing like roger in any way, Especially he doesn’t say his coin is bitcoin and doesn’t claim babies are dying.” Novogratz had previously requested everyone to forego their LTC holdings and buy BTC instead. His comments came at a time when Litecoin and the collective cryptocurrency market was seeing a surge in its fortunes. At press time, the silver coin was trading at $87.51, with a market cap of $5.35 billion. It had a 24-hour trading volume of $3.9 billion. While the coin was falling by 0.47% at press time, it had registered a 43% surge over the past seven days.

Bitcoin Cash, Tron (TRX), BNB, LTC & EOS Could Continue To Outperform

The total crypto market cap is holding a major support area near the $158.0B level. EOS price is trading nicely above $5.15 and it may climb towards the $5.40 level in the near term. Binance Coin (BNB) seems to be setting up for a break above the $20.00 level. Bitcoin cash price corrected lower after trading close to the $350 resistance. Tron (TRX) price is gaining momentum and it is currently up around 5% to $0.0272. Bitcoin cash, litecoin, tron (TRX), binance coin (BNB) and EOS are setting up the next break. The crypto market remains supported and dips in bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH) and ripple remain well bid. Bitcoin Cash Price Analysis Bitcoin cash price was the best performer in the top 10 coin as it broke the $300 resistance level against the US Dollar. The BCH/USD pair even broke the $320 level and traded close to the $350 resistance. Recently, it started a downside correction and declined sharply below the $300 level. However, the $275-280 support is acting as a strong buy zone. Therefore, the price is likely to bounce back as long as there is no close below the $275 support area. EOS, Tron (TRX) and BNB Price Analysis EOS price settled above the $5.00 and $5.10 support levels. The price is currently consolidating above the $5.15 level and it seems like it could trade above the $5.20 and $5.30 levels. The next stop could be $5.40, above which the price may climb towards the $5.75 and $5.80 levels. Tron price is trading nicely and it recently gained more than 5%. TRX price recently broke the $0.0265 and $0.0270 resistance levels to move into an uptrend. If buyers remain in action, there are chances of more gains above the $0.0280 and $0.0295 resistance levels in the coming sessions. Binance coin (BNB) spiked towards the $20.00 resistance level, but it could not gain pace above $20.00. BNB is currently consolidating above the $19.00 level and it seems to be preparing for the next wave. If there is an upside break above $20.00, there could be a sharp rally towards the $22.00 level. If not, the price may decline to $17.50. Looking at the total cryptocurrency market cap hourly chart, there was a downside correction from the $178.0B and $180.0B resistance levels. The market cap declined below the $170.0B level, but the $158.0B level acted as a strong support. It represents the 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $136.8B low to $178.3B high. Therefore, as long as the market cap is above $157.6B level, there could be a fresh increase in bitcoin, ETH, TRX, LTC, EOS, BNB, ripple, ADA, XLM, WAN, BCH, XMR and other altcoins in the near term.

SFOX Market Index Reads Current Crypto Market as ‘Mildly Bullish’

Institutional cryptocurrency prime dealer SFOX’s index is now reading the digital currency market as “mildly bullish,” according to a report published on April 4. In the course of preparing the report, the company collected data about price, volume and volatility from eight major exchanges in March in order to examine the worldwide performance of six leading coins: Bitcoin (BTC), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Ethereum (ETH), Litecoin (LTC), Bitcoin SV (BSV), and Ethereum Classic (ETC). The SFOX Multi-Factor Market Index reportedly indicates that the cryptocurrency market entered April as mildly bullish, with Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum, and Litecoin reporting remarkable volatility movements that were not connected to Bitcoin. The research team postulated that the market at large may be growing outside of Bitcoin. In terms of Bitcoin’s 30-days price correlations to other coins, ETC was reportedly the least correlated to Bitcoin, with a correlation of 0.685, while the least correlated cryptocurrency pair was LTC and ETC, with a correlation of 0.453. A correlation of 1 is considered the strongest. The report further notes that the correlation between BTC and ETC decreased from the beginning of March through March 20th, having a low positive correlation of 0.21. Earlier this week, the founder and CEO of digital currency investment firm BKCM LLC, Brian Kelly said that the next Bitcoin target is going to be $6,000, with cryptocurrency markets finding their bottom. Kelly then explained: “All indications that we have — whether it be fundamentals, technicals, the quantitative analysis we do — all suggest that we probably have at least started to put in the bottoming process. What’s interesting about this move is it’s happening on improving fundamentals and improving institutional sentiment.”

Additionally, the video shows the company’s proprietary suite of cybersecurity tools called Adshield that detects fraud, shuts down bots, and protects the user’s ad spend. The demo claims that Adshield uses 12 different security protocols in order to enhance the process. This includes checking for traffic origin, red flag reaches, suspicious referrals, distrustful user agents, and fraudulent clicks. It also checks for sketchy automation, known violator IPs, known violator datacenter IPs, browser integrity, Javascript integrity, pages per session excess, and exceeded pages per minute. According to Tribeos, this makes sure that advertisers are serving their ad to real humans rather than bots. Adshield dashboard. Bitcoin Cash Brings 100% Transparent Advertising The software exhibition shows Adshield fraud reports that give advertisers the ability to view fraud attempts in real time. Threat summary reports show advertisers block requests and gives users atomic traceability tools. These tools provide users with the ability to track micro engagements like mouse movements, scrolls, and clicks. “The recent demo of the Tribeos advertising marketplace provides real world evidence of what digital advertisers and publishers can expect,” explained Matt Gallant, CEO of Tribeos. “12 different security protocols to stop ad scammers in their tracks — Who else does that?” Gallant continued, adding: As someone who has lost millions to ad fraud crime, it’s time for a next generation, 100% transparent advertising marketplace built on blockchain — And that’s exactly how Tribeos will forever change how digital advertising is conducted online.

Gold Lantern provides advertisers with true campaign performance data so they can make wiser decisions going forward. The analytics shows metrics like Return on Ad Spend (ROI) and users can also zero in on visitor value. Gallant also believes the Tribeos ad platform will bring lots of commerce to the BCH ecosystem because the project depends on the transparency and immutability of the BCH chain. As an added benefit to the system as a whole, all the Tribeos data built on top of the BCH blockchain gives the software an edge by being 100 percent auditable. According to the demo video, every buy and sell, every instance of fraud blocking, and every click is published on the BCH chain which makes it impossible to manipulate.

Bitcoin Cash / USD Technical Analysis: Rogue Wave

Bitcoin Cash has a bullish short-term bias, with the BCH / USD pair touching levels not seen since November 2018 Bullish MACD price divergence on the daily time frame has now been reversed Bitcoin Cash has a bullish outlook over the medium-term horizon Bitcoin Cash / USD Short-term price analysis Bitcoin Cash has a bullish short-term trading bias, with the BCH / USD pair advancing towards levels not seen since November 2018. The four-hour time frame highlights the strong technical breakout that occurred once the BCH / USD pair broke from its two-week trading range. If any downward technical corrections occur, the BCH / USD pair’s 200-period moving average on the four-hour time frame is currently the strongest form of near-term support. BCH / USD H4 Chart (Source: TradingView) Pattern Watch Traders should note that the four-hour time frame is showing a bearish reversal candle. Relative Strength Index The RSI indicator on the four-hour time is correcting lower after moving into extreme overbought territory. MACD Indicator The MACD indicator on the four-hour time frame is starting to appear overstretched. Bitcoin Cash / USD Medium-term price analysis Bitcoin Cash has a bullish medium-term outlook, with the BCH / USD pair now trading above its trend defining 200-day moving average. The BCH / USD pair has now reversed any bullish divergence on the daily time frame, while the inverted head and shoulders pattern on the mentioned time frame has reached its overall upside objective. Key technical support over the medium-term is now found at the neckline of the inverted head and shoulders pattern and the BCH / USD pair’s 200-day moving average. BCH / USD Daily Chart (Source: TradingView) Pattern Watch Traders should note that the chance of a strong technical reversal has increased, now that the bullish pattern on the daily time frame has reached its overall upside target. Relative Strength Index The RSI indicator on the daily time frame is now extremely overbought. MACD Indicator The MACD indicator on the daily time frame is bullish and continues to generate a bullish trading signal. Conclusion Bitcoin Cash has gained close to one-hundred percent in value so far this week, with the BCH / USD pair staging its strongest weekly advance since April 2018.

Markets Update: BCH Maintains Strong Lead as Crypto Prices Record Slight Pullback

Cryptocurrency markets saw some significant gains over the last two days, but prices on Thursday have started to pull back from this year’s all-time highs. When the spikes first initiated, bitcoin cash (BCH) led the pack out of the top 10 cryptocurrencies and still maintains a lead with over 75 percent worth of gains for the week. Also read: Bitcoin Cash Markets and Network Gather Strong Momentum in Q1 Crypto Prices Fall Back After Touching 2019’s All-Time Highs Digital assets prices lifted in value significantly this week, making cryptocurrency enthusiasts extremely happy again after more than a year of depressing market sentiment. Now things have changed, and the overall cryptocurrency market cap is about $172 billion today, roughly $8 billion less than April 3rd’s highs. Bitcoin core (BTC) is averaging around $5,036 per coin at press time and is up 0.34 percent since yesterday. BTC also has a weekly advantage as the currency is up roughly 23 percent over the last seven days. It’s also worth noting that the bitcoin dominance metric, the size of BTC’s market cap in comparison to the rest of the cryptoconomy, has dropped to 50 percent. The second highest valued market cap belongs to ethereum (ETH) which is down 3.9 percent today and trading for $162 per ETH. Ripple (XRP) markets have also dropped significantly by 5 percent during the last 24 hours. XRP is trading for $0.34 a token and its market is still up by 10 percent for the week. Lastly, the fifth market position now belongs to litecoin (LTC) after being nudged out by bitcoin cash (BCH) on Wednesday. LTC is trading for $87 per coin and is still up today by 1.9 percent and 42 percent over the last seven days. Bitcoin Cash (BCH) Market Action Bitcoin cash (BCH) markets hold the fourth position today within the top 10 coins in the cryptoconomy. BCH spot prices are still up 6.8 percent today and roughly 77 percent for the entire week. At press time BCH is trading for $302 per coin and has a market capitalization of around $5.35 billion. Market statistics show that BCH is the sixth most traded coin by trade volume below EOS and above XRP. The top five exchanges swapping the most BCH on April 4 are Lbank, Binance, Huobi, Bitfinex, and Coinbase. USDT is still the dominating pair traded with BCH today, capturing 47 percent of trades. Tether pairs are followed by BTC (25%), USD (16%), KRW (4.8%), EUR (2.3%), and JPY (1.9%). Just a month ago BCH global trade volume was a mere $500-800 million per day and now trade volume is roughly $3.9 billion over the last 24 hours. BCH/USD Technical Indicators Looking at the 4-hour BCH/USD chart on Bitstamp and Kraken shows BCH bulls are in the midst of being beaten back after a big jump on Wednesday. Currently, most oscillators are neutral except for the Relative Strength Index (~89), which is still showing overbought conditions. Stochastic is a bit high at ~78, but still impartial, while the MACd momentum oscillator shows that markets are overbought and a deeper pullback may be on the cards. The two Simple Moving Averages (100 SMA and 200 SMA) and most moving averages like the EMA show markets are still in the buy territory. The 4-hour chart shows the 100 SMA is still above the long-term 200 SMA trendline indicating the path toward the least resistance is still the upside. Ichimoku Cloud (9, 26, 52, 26) baseline is impartial at the moment as most indicators currently display a mixture of support and resistance at the time of publication. Order books show some heavy sell walls between the $350 range and even bigger near the $400 region. On the backside, if bears gain some control we will likely see some pitstops between $250 and $215. The Next Bull Run: This Time Around Scaling Will Matter Overall cryptocurrency enthusiasts are still exuberant about the rising prices even after some small corrections. On Wednesday, BCH supporters were pleased to see BCH rocket ahead of most coins in the economy, believing it was due a trend reversal. Some crypto enthusiasts think that BTC’s failure to scale will cost the network considerably during the next bull run. Furthermore, many BCH supporters think bitcoin cash is undervalued at the moment compared to coins that have difficulty scaling when crypto interest rises. On Wednesday, Bitcoin.com CEO Roger Ver said he thinks people will see more demand for BCH going forward. This is because the cryptocurrency just works and its ability to transact in a censorship-resistant manner for less than a penny per transaction outpaces the competition. “People love to use cash as a store of value — Since bitcoin cash works like cash, it also works as a store of value,” Ver noted during the market spike yesterday. “I think we’ll continue to see bitcoin cash outperform bitcoin core.” What do you think about the massive spike BCH markets witnessed over the last two days?

Bitcoin Cash Price Bullrun Continues After Hitting $300 Again

Based on the current cryptocurrency momentum, it will be interesting to see which markets can remain afloat over the coming days. Although Bitcoin is still in the green, it dropped below $5,000 once again. Interestingly enough, the Bitcoin Cash price sees this as a signal to turn bullish yet again. Most of its gains are still intact, and it seems the $300 level will hold true for some time to come. Bitcoin Cash Price Surge Resumes It is evident the current overall market momentum isn’t too promising as far as most altcoins, tokens, and assets are concerned. This momentum will always be subjected to change, but as Bitcoin dropped below $5,000 again, most of the positivity has been eroded in the process. Interestingly enough, it would appear Bitcoin Cash shows no signs of slowing down by any means. Despite noting over 70% gains in the past few days, it is still going strong even when Bitcoin is coming under a lot of pressure. To put everything in perspective, the Bitcoin Cash price has gained another 11.5% in both USD and BTC value today. This pushes the current price to $304.51, or 0.061 Bitcoin. Very promising trends when looking at the bigger picture, although it will be interesting to see how long all of this can be sustained for. The BCH trading volume is also picking up steam, as nearly $4bn worth of BCH has changed hands across the exchanges in the past day. The big news of the day is how Huobi DM will launch Bitcoin Cash contracts, according to Crypto Sarah. This new feature is expected to become available tomorrow, and users will also be able to leverage their position. It is another offering to bring more exposure to Bitcoin Cash as a whole, although it may not necessarily have an impact on the BCH value itself. Even so, it is another notch in the belt of this ecosystem, which is always a good sign. Huobi DM To Launch Bitcoin Cash Contracts Users will be able to trade the contracts based on BCH from April 5. In addition, they will be able to use a leverage of up to x20 to increase the size of their positions.#BCH #CryptoNews #cryptocurrency #Huobi — crypto sarah (@crypto_sarah9) April 4, 2019 For those who keep a close eye on the BCH chart as of right now, there is a lot of interesting potential waiting to be unlocked. If this uptrend continues, it seems BCH will finally break out of the downward spiral in a decisive manner, which will make a lot of traders rather happy. As is always the case, though, there is a genuine chance things will not work out as planned, as it will mainly depend on how dire the Bitcoin price situation gets. update on #bch #bchgang #bchabc #bitcoin pic.twitter.com/ZWn9wkKjbE — ℂ𝕣𝕪𝕡𝕥𝕠𝕟𝕒𝕦𝕥 (@Cryptonaut_01) April 4, 2019 Xloutpa seems to share a similar sentiment when it comes to Bitcoin Cash. More specifically, there is a big “gap” waiting to be filled in terms of reaching a potential new all-time high further down the line. For now, that remains well out of reach despite the bullish momentum in place right now. With the weekend not too far off, it would appear this market can easily swing either way in quick succession. Do you think that we are going to fill this gap on $bch ? #cryptomarket #BitcoinCash #BCH pic.twitter.com/aPbe4ZZOMt — xloutpa (@patrick_xlout) April 4, 2019 At this time, it is evident Bitcoin Cash performs better than most other markets as of right now. Its gains are still in place as of right now, and the trading volume continues to rise every single day. How that will affect the value, is a different matter altogether. Sustaining the $300 level should not necessarily be a problem, although one never knows what the future may bring. Disclaimer: This is not trading or investment advice.

Bitcoin Price Plunges $400 Overnight But Clings to $5K Support

Bitcoin price fell $400 in minutes April 3 but broadly held onto support above $5000 as the enthusiasm from this week’s bull run continues. $5000: Bitcoin’s New Home? Data from cryptocurrency exchange Bitstamp, which tends to deliver slightly more conservative price information than many mainstream platforms, showed bitcoin price hitting a high of $5332 before retracing Thursday. The gains, which began earlier this week when bitcoin suddenly jumped from $4170 to $5000, mean Thursday saw the highest bitcoin price since November 18 last year. That date was just days after a contentious hard fork on Bitcoin Cash (BCH) caused significant market volatility, leading BTC into a downward spiral which saw lows of just $3130 weeks later. With its latest surge, bitcoin has definitively recovered from the event, reattaining its pre-fork levels for the first time. At press time, BTC/USD was hovering around $5010 on Bitstamp, having bounced through $5000 once again after briefly falling to $4880. Squeeze Or Moonshot? As Bitcoinist reported, the industry is currently undecided as to the cause of the most successful day for the Bitcoin price in more than a year. As our in-house analyst Filb Filb previously noted, technical indicators were predicting a bullish advance prior to the fact, while others speculated that managed exchange orders were influencing market demand. At the same time, the relative longevity of the bull run - with the Bitcoin price holding at higher levels more than just a matter of hours - further complicates the situation for analysts. Nonetheless, some things remain the same. The price run came alongside huge increase in interest from conventional markets, with Google Trends and its equivalents proving that price means appeal for the mainstream. Others were predictably more bullish still, with Twitter trading analyst known as Vortex reiterating his belief Bitcoin would usurp all other forms of value to emerge as a dominant force. “The market has assigned a value to (Bitcoin),” he wrote April 2. With its fixed supply it’s only a matter of time before BTC sucks in all value like a black hole. A ‘flippening’ of mainstream habits to favor Bitcoin over fiat-based alternatives further formed the topic of a comprehensive report by software company DataLight this week. As Bitcoinist reported, the research followed Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey in announcing that within ten years, Bitcoin would beat out competition as a global currency. Specifically, Visa, MasterCard and PayPal would all give way to the cryptocurrency, should current development continue. What do you think about the Bitcoin price’s current activity?

Bitcoin Cash [BCH] Jumps over Litecoin [LTC] By Market Cap To Quickly Capture 4th Spot

Bitcoin Cash (BCH), the fork of Bitcoin which had happened on 1st August 2017 is steadily approaching the mainstream attention. Very recently, BCH has recorded new volume and captured the 4th largest spot on the graph of Coinmarketcap after defeating Litecoin (LTC). Bitcoin Cash Runs Higher With Crypto Bull Rally Reports reveal that Bitcoin Cash or BCH has surged nearly 100% since the start of this week. With potential value, BCH jumps over Litecoin (LTC) by market capitalization. At the moment, BCH is skyrocketed to $311.99 with a gain of 23.24 percent over the past 24 hours. In addition, the average market capitalization in comparison with LTC also surges to $5,525,257,127. Although, as reported by Coingape, the battle between BCH and LTC appeared as a center topic across crypto media - To note, the price of Bitcoin Cash on Monday was $166.93 and today it has recorded the highest point of over $300 against US Dollar. Following the significant growth of Bitcoin Cash, analysts, traders and crypto commentator on their way to analyze what has influenced this tremendous surge - consequently, some analysts points at its fundamentals such as rise of BCH future trading on Kraken subsidiary whereas other believe ‘Simple Ledger Protocol’ launch that encourages developers to create new token that will be traded on BCH’s blockchain’ and also other reason could be the accessibility of booking flights using Bitcoin Cash Cryptocurrency on Bitcoin.travel website. On top of all, the leap of BCH value is recognized since the ruling cryptocurrency, Bitcoin took a new turn. As Coingape earlier reported, Bitcoin enters the second quarter of 2019 with most potential figures which have influenced the value of other altcoins as well - henceforth BCH’s value. Just to note, Bitcoin has already skyrocketed above $5000 against the US Dollar and continued flourishing the market with 1.85% growth at the moment. What do you think about Bitcoin Cash (BCH)? Do you believe the value continued on the soaring graph? Let us know your opinion.

Simply Unstoppable: Bitcoin Cash Price Has Doubled in Two Days, Volume up 10 Times

The cryptocurrency market has been on one of the best runs since 2017. Bitcoin has rallied to hit the $5,000 level before a brief rollback took it to $4,700. However, it has since regained its momentum and currently trades just above $5,000. Litecoin is up nine percent in the past 24 hours to trade just shy of $90. EOS hit the $5.5 mark after a bullish run, with Ethereum currently trading at $163, up 77 percent in the past two months. However, Bitcoin Cash has been the undisputed leader of the current bull run. The Unsung Hero The currency has been on one of the best runs ever, doubling its price in the span of three days. On Tuesday, April 2nd, BCH was trading at $168. It had ranged between $155 and $170 for the previous two weeks. It started the week slow on Monday, trading at $167. The daily volume stood at $460 million. However, everything was about to take a turn for the best for the currency. On Tuesday, the currency made rapid gains, shooting up 28 percent to close the day at $215. The trading volume also tripled to hit $1.35 billion by end of the day. And it wasn’t done just yet. On Wednesday, the currency picked up where it had left off, gaining an incredible 58 percent. It closed the day at $340, its highest price so far this year. In fact, this is the highest that BCH has traded since November last year when the Bitcoin SV hard fork led the market to a plunge. BCH has been unable to pick itself up from the fork, up until now. The volume has also shot up tremendously. While just three days ago it stood at $460 million, it went up to $4.2 billion on Wednesday. Huobi Global continues to be the biggest contributor to the BCH trading volume with $420 million, a 10 percent contribution. Binance, LBank and Upbit follow suit with upwards of $200 million each. However, the BCH momentum has slowed down a bit and at press time, the currency was trading at $310. Earlier, it had dipped to $292, but it quickly rebounded to trade once again above $300. The volume has also come down slightly to stand at $4 billion. Following the Leader? So, why has BCH skyrocketed in the past few days? While there are factors within the BCH ecosystem that have boosted the price, some experts seem to believe that it’s just following the general tone set by the leader, Bitcoin. Speaking to Forbes, crypto trader and investor Marius Rupsys stated that BCH has BTC to thank for its momentum. “Bitcoin started moving and only then other coins followed,” he told the business publication. Lance Morginn, co-founder of crypto analytics firm Blockchain Intelligence Group shared the opinion. He stated: Bitcoin is acting as the anchor currency and can be credited for the initial price pop for bitcoin cash. From my perspective, it looks like the traders have hopped on to BCH given its greater momentum, as they can leverage BCH more than BTC. While this may be true, BCH has also been greatly boosted by an explosion in the volume of BCH futures contracts at Crypto Facilities, the London-based crypto derivatives provider. The startup was acquired by U.S exchange Kraken earlier this year, and this has provided a turnaround. Previously, clients were almost exclusively interested in BTC and ETH futures. However, after the acquisition, Crypto Facilities got exposed to Kraken users who were also interested in other altcoin futures. Speaking to crypto media outlet CoinDesk this week, the startup’s head of indices revealed that Bitcoin Cash futures had shot up 500 percent in the past month. Litecoin futures have also seen increased interest since the turn of the year, he revealed.

Why Has Litecoin and Bitcoin Cash Kept Market Momentum Moving?

All eyes have been on Bitcoin this week as it fired up engines and lifted off with a surge of 20% in a couple of days. The move has had the time tested effect of pulling the entire crypto market up as over $30 billion poured back into digital currencies. BTC has not been the only mover though as other altcoins have registered greater gains and two of them are still climbing. Double Flippening as BCH Takes Fourth Bitcoin Cash has been on fire this week, far outpacing gains made by its big brother. Earlier this week BCH was trading at around $170 with a daily volume of roughly $460 million. Once the Bitcoin bulls got into gear, its younger sibling literally exploded with a 100% pump to $340 in just two days. Volume is off the chart and has jumped to over $4 billion which is what Bitcoin was trading earlier this year. Since the spike Bitcoin Cash has corrected to $300 but is still up over 75% which is more than triple what BTC has made. The move has enabled BCH to flip both EOS and Litecoin in terms of market cap which is now $5.3 billion according to Coinmarketcap.com. Bitcoin Cash has doubled in price since the beginning of 2019 and has been one of the best performers in this latest rally. Analysts are looking at a next major resistance level at $400 as it approaches key long term resistance indicators. #BCH has increase 83% in price 😱. Nice pull back should not drop below 270$ ( 200$ level is still acceptable to continue this bull trend). Next major resistance is around 410$. 🚀 pic.twitter.com/EhecgBncHA— CryptoBull (@CryptoBullllll) April 4, 2019 Even Forbes is now covering BCH and indicates that an increase in Bitcoin Cash futures trading on Kraken subsidiary Crypto Facilities and the launch of its Simple Ledger Protocol could be driving momentum. It is more likely to be the fomo that the entire market has at the moment though. Litecoin Lifting Off Litecoin has been the other high cap crypto that is keeping markets buoyant at the moment. From a start of $60 LTC surged to bounce off $100 during the rally according to charts on Trading View. The 66% pump has pushed Litecoin prices to their highest levels since July 2018. Since the beginning of the year LTC has surged over 190% making it one of the top performing altcoins of 2019. Volume has also surged from $1.7 billion earlier this week to over $6 billion driving its market cap over $5 billion for the first time in nine months. A crossing of the 50 and 200 moving averages last month has been seen as a very bullish indicator for Litecoin which has continued to climb since. Litecoin prices began to shift gears following the Mimblewimble announcements in early February and a LTC halving event in August this year is also likely to be driving momentum.

Ethereum Classic (ETC) Retraces Below 21 Week EMA As Rally Comes To A Halt

Ethereum Classic (ETC) is down more than 87% from its all-time high. The recent rally has got a lot of traders excited about the next bull run but the weekly chart for ETC/USD shows that the price is not out of the woods yet. In fact, the rejection that ETC/USD faced at the 21 week EMA has now seen the price decline sharply. If the price ends up closing the week below this level, we might have a strong signal for further downside. The Stochastic RSI for ETC/USD on the weekly time frame has never been this overbought since the beginning of the bear market. This is very alarming and speaks volumes about what is to follow next. Certainly, the cryptocurrency has a lot of potential for long term growth but it is due for further downside short term. Value investors that are strong believers in the long term potential of Ethereum Classic (ETC) might find this a good opportunity to start accumulating Ethereum Classic (ETC) for long term. However, the fact remains that the price is highly likely to see further downside and we might see it decline towards the December, 2018 lows even if it does not end up falling further. For most in this space, this is the first time they are following any bear market much less a cryptocurrency bear market. While we expect further downside short term, it is important to understand that the price has already seen more than a 95% correction and it couldn’t possibly fall 100% to go to zero. So, even if the price falls further, it has a lot more room to go up than it has room to go down. The daily chart for ETCUSDShorts shows that the number of margined shorts for Ethereum Classic (ETC) has shot up again. Traders are always very eager to short Ethereum Classic (ETC) despite it being quite an undervalued cryptocurrency. If ETCUSDShorts closes the day above the 50 day moving average, we will see it rise further towards the 200 day moving average. During this time, ETC/USD will see further sell pressure and the price might decline significantly. Talking about further decline in Ethereum Classic (ETC) it is important to note that the market cap difference between Ethereum Classic (ETC) and Ethereum (ETH) is now almost 30 times! This is a big difference compared to the difference between Bitcoin (BTC) and Bitcoin Cash (BCH) which is less than 4 times. Ethereum Classic (ETC) continues to remain a promising blockchain project despite the recent setbacks. The blockchain has seen significant growth under the leadership of ETC Labs and we expect it to see explosive growth during the next bullish cycle which will reflect in its price. The number of Dapps built on the blockchain is also expected to rise and partnerships with big tech corporations in the IOT (Internet of Things) arena are also expected in the near future.

Bitcoin Cash (BCH) dobra de preço em apenas 48 horas

Caso você não tenha notado ainda, o mercado de criptomoedas está em alta, a todo vapor. Todas criptomoedas e tokens estão ganhando valor, a capitalização total de mercado ganhou US $ 22,1 bilhões em apenas dois dias. Enquanto a maioria das dez principais criptomoedas por capitalização de mercado aumentaram em percentuais de dois dígitos no mesmo período, a shitcoin Bitcoin Cash (BCH) parece estar liderando a alta. O controverso fork do Bitcoin lançado em agosto de 2017 quase dobrou de valor nos últimos dois dias! Bitcoin Cash dobrando de valor. Imagem: Livecoins O Bitcoin Cash começou abril valendo cerca de US $ 168. Por volta das 5:00 da manhã do dia 2 de abril, o preço começou a subir rapidamente e, desde então, não parou mais. Até o momento, menos de 48 horas após o início da tendência de alta, o quarto ativo digital mais popular do mundo viu seu valor chegar a US $ 323 (R$ 1.225). Isso representa um crescimento muito próximo de 100% em menos de dois dias. Via Twitter, o economista, trader e comentarista de criptomoedas Alex Krüger chamou a atenção para este curto período de crescimento parabólico: $BCH +100% in 2 days - short term algo driven buyers, or- long term holders What do you think? pic.twitter.com/ej79eSkECt — Alex Krüger (@krugermacro) April 3, 2019 O movimento épico do Bitcoin Cash ao longo dos últimos dias é consistente com a tendência observada em todo o mercado de moedas digitais. Outras criptomoedas como Bitcoin, Ethereum e Litecoin registraram ganhos de 8,52%, 10,3% e 31,15% nas últimas 24 horas, respectivamente. No entanto, de toda a lista das 100 principais moedas digitais, o Bitcoin Cash fica no topo por seus ganhos acima de 50% no último dia. Apesar de haver um enorme crescimento na pressão de compra, não há uma indicação clara de para onde ela está vindo. Alguns especialistas, como Tyler Jenks, da Lucid Investments, acreditam que o movimento atual não é mais do que mais uma armadilha de touros e que veremos preços mais baixos em breve. Enquanto isso, outras vozes, mais tipicamente anti-criptomoedas, também expõem opiniões: “Bitcoin apareceu de novo, Ignore isso”, disse Nouriel Roubini, conhecido também como Dr. Doom. Bitcoin Is Surging Again. Just Ignore It https://t.co/8ZXc8zwuZb — Nouriel Roubini (@Nouriel) April 3, 2019 No entanto, não há escassez de otimistas para equilibrar o pessimismo de curto prazo de Jenks ou as profecias carregadas de desgraça de Nouriel Roubini. Muitos agora estão alegando que o mercado de urso de 2018/19 finalmente acabou. Anthony Pompliano, da Morgan Creek Digital, afirmou que “o Bitcoin está de volta, baby”. Junto com as diferenças de opinião sobre o que o movimento significa para os preços de curto, médio e longo prazo de diferentes moedas digitais, parece haver ainda menos consenso sobre o que realmente causou o repentino surto do Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash e outros ativos digitais. Muitas vezes, essas oscilações coincidem com um evento noticioso que causa uma grande quantidade de compras ou vendas. No entanto, parece haver pouca evidência de qualquer desenvolvimento positivo que possa explicar o que realmente aconteceu.

CoolWallet S Review: An ‘Everyday’ Wallet for Crypto?

The CoolWallet S, made by CoolBit X, combines hot and cold storage solutions, blending the mobility afforded by software wallets with the enhanced security features offered by hardware wallets. Branded as the “everyday wallet” for crypto users, the CoolWallet S is designed to be used on-the-go, allowing its users to track their investments, send and receive assets and instantly exchange currencies through Bluetooth-enabled, dual-device technology.The CoolWallet S retails at around $99. Unlike other hardware wallets on the market, its sleek design boasts not only the exact dimensions of a credit card, but also the durability of one. It claims to be waterproof, flexible and temperature resistant, as well as tamperproof.It offers a rechargeable battery that should last about a month and something called “2+1-factor authentication” — access through two devices plus biometric identification. Users can pair up to three devices with the wallet through an extra-secure Bluetooth connection.The CoolWallet S supports a wide variety of cryptocurrencies, including BTC, BCH, BNB, ETH, LTC, USDT, XRP, ZEN and ERC-20 tokens. It also integrates Changelly for instant currency swaps.Users interact with the device through a button located on its right-hand side and an e-paper screen, which displays the device’s remaining battery and a Bluetooth indicator when paired with something, allowing you to toggle between currencies to view the assets currently stored on it.Configuration and UseOverall setup should take about 10 to 20 minutes and seems fairly intuitive, with clear attention paid to the user experience through step-by-step instruction.Once you’ve downloaded the CoolBitX Crypto app to your mobile device and enabled your device’s Bluetooth, you can connect to your CoolWallet S by selecting the serial number that matches that of your card (found in the left-hand corner). A one-time password will appear on the e-paper that you then input into your mobile device to pair.Once paired, you will see an option to either recover or create your wallet, which is done by generating a new random set of seeds (with options of 12-, 18- or 24-word sets) through either the card or the app. You’ll then need to verify your seed phrase — the most tedious part of setting up any hardware wallet.You can pair up to three devices to your CoolWallet S by inputting the pairing password (located under the “pair” category of the app’s settings menu) to each new device when prompted, although the “allow new pairing” option must be enabled in order to add new devices. You can just as easily remove unwanted devices via a “device list” category in the settings.Although there is no PIN needed to access your funds, you can transact only if your CoolWallet S card is turned on and paired with your device. This is also where the 2+1-factor authentication comes in.(For full step-by-step instructions, check out the CoolWallet S user manual.)CoolWallet AppUsing the CoolWallet app is pretty intuitive. In the wallet tab, you can view your funds and easily add one of the cryptocurrencies supported by the wallet to the display by configuring the “coin display” option in the settings. Additionally, the wallet is fully integrated with Changelly, enabling trading capabilities within the safety of your cold storage wallet.Among the best features is the sliding transaction fee bar that allows you to increase or decrease the fee in accordance with desired transaction confirmation time. This sort of option is becoming increasingly common among crypto wallets.SecurityAlmost all exchanges and wallet solutions at this point, and even your most basic password-protected accounts like Gmail, offer an auxiliary layer of security through 2-factor authentication (2FA). Seldom addressed, however, is the fact that many users still set up their 2FA for various accounts on a device that is also used to access their crypto assets via an exchange or a software wallet.It may be unlikely that a hacker could orchestrate a cyberattack that would prove successful, but SIM card fraud, or “SIM swapping,” remains a threat to token holders whose 2FA is enabled through a single device.The CoolWallet S’s approach to multifactor authentication protects against this vulnerability through dual-device authentication with an optional biometric authentication layer.The CoolWallet S’s use of Bluetooth as the channel through which the wallet enables access to funds in the app may make some people wary. After all, when Bluetooth was created in the ’90s, it wasn’t exactly designed with security in mind. So how do you know your funds are truly secure when transmitted using this technology?The Bluetooth communication between the CoolWallet S and smart devices is encrypted using military-grade Advanced Encryption Standard 256, or AES-256. In terms of data security, AES-256 is not only an internationally recognized algorithm, but it’s also used by the U.S. Department of Defense, the National Security Agency an

Crypto Bulls Return? Bitcoin Cash (BCH) Doubles in Price in Just 48 Hours

In case you haven’t noticed already, the crypto markets have been absolutely on fire over the last couple of days. The entire market for all digital coins and tokens has increased by more than an impressive $22.1 billion in just the first few days of April. Whilst most the top ten digital assets by market capitalisation have increased by double-figure percentages over the same period, Bitcoin Cash (BCH) appears to be leading the charge. The controversial hard fork of Bitcoin launched in August 2017 has almost doubled in value over the last couple of days! Green Day: Bitcoin Cash Outperforms Rest of Crypto Top 10 Bitcoin Cash started April trading sideways at around $168. At around 5:00 am on April 2, the price began shifting upwards rapidly and it has barely come up for air since. At the time of writing, less than 48 hours following the start of the uptrend, the fourth most popular digital asset by market capitalisation has increased to $323. This represents very close to 100 percent growth in less than two days. Economist, trader and crypto commentator Alex Krüger brought attention to this short run of parabolic growth earlier today via Twitter: $BCH +100% in 2 days - short term algo driven buyers, or- long term holders What do you think? pic.twitter.com/ej79eSkECt — Alex Krüger (@krugermacro) April 3, 2019 The epic move by Bitcoin Cash over the last couple of days is consistent with the trend observed in the entire digital currency market. The likes of Bitcoin, Ether, and Litecoin have posted 8.52%, 10.3%, and 31.15% gains over the last 24 hours respectively. However, of the entire list of top 100 crypto projects, Bitcoin Cash sits at the top for its over 50 percent gains over the last day. Despite there obviously being a huge growth in buying pressure, there is no clear indication as to where it is coming from. Some, such as Lucid Investments’s Tyler Jenks, believe the current move is no more than another bull trap and that we will see lower prices before any real bullish momentum can grow. Meanwhile, other, more typically anti-crypto voices, have also chimed in: Bitcoin Is Surging Again. Just Ignore It https://t.co/8ZXc8zwuZb — Nouriel Roubini (@Nouriel) April 3, 2019 However, there are been no shortage of optimists to balance out the short-term pessimism of Jenks or the doom-laden prophecies of Nouriel Roubini. Many are now claiming that the bear market of 2018/19 is finally over. Anthony Pompliano of Morgan Creek Digital has stated that “Bitcoin is back, baby” and John McAfee is claiming to have called the bottom of the crypto market prior to the current uptrend: Everyone trashed me two weeks ago when I said: "The market has now turned", so I've kept my mouth shut. I will now say it again: "The market has now turned". The bow of thr bear market was pulled to its max. Now watch the arrow spring to life. pic.twitter.com/X22ybS4B8g — John McAfee (@officialmcafee) April 2, 2019 Max Keiser, another long-term crypto bull, is also of the opinion that the market may be entering a new phase: #Bitcoin momentum has shifted bullish. As I tweeted a few months ago, when the Fed indicated they were moving to “permanent QE,” BTC bottomed out and the stage is set for new ATH. — Max Keiser, tweet poet. (@maxkeiser) April 2, 2019 Along with differences in opinion over what the move means for the short, medium, and long term prices of different digital currencies, there seems even less consensus as to what has actually caused the sudden surge in Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, and other crypto assets. Often such swings coincide with a news event causing a mass of buying or selling. However, there seems to be little evidence of any such positive development that might account for what is certainly the largest pump thus far in 2019.

Bitcoin core (BTC) markets show BTC is trading for $5,022 with a market cap of around $88.4 billion today. The cryptocurrency is up 5.4% over the last 24 hours and BTC is also up 23% for the week.

The third highest market valuation belongs to ripple (XRP) which is trading for $0.36 per token. Litecoin (LTC) still holds the fourth position and each coin is $85 per LTC at press time. Bitcoin Cash (BCH) Market Action The top 10 forerunner leading the pack is bitcoin cash (BCH) by a long shot. BCH prices have jumped well over 50 percent in the last 24 hours. Since then there’s been a pullback in price but BCH is still more than 45 percent higher than it was the day before. Weekly statistics show BCH is also up 69 percent for the week as each coin is priced at $288 at press time. BCH recently captured the fifth largest market position with an overall market cap of around $5.11 billion today. The top five exchanges swapping the most BCH by trade volume are Lbank, Binance, Fcoin, Huobi, and Coinbase. The top trading pair with bitcoin cash today is USDT which captures 43.8% of trades. This is followed by BTC (34.4%), USD (11.9%), KRW (4.2%), and JPY (2%). There’s been a big increase in EUR/BCH pairs (1.7%) as well, which historically happens during bullish times. BCH/USD Technical Indicators Looking at the 4-hour BCH/USD chart on Kraken and Bitstamp shows bulls attempted to break more ground during the early morning trading sessions but met resistance. There have been many signs of BCH bouncing high since last February’s bearish crossover which indicated the bottom may be in and better prices were coming. Today prices are much higher but the Relative Strength Index (RSI ~87) is screaming overbought conditions which means the bullish jump may scale back a hair. Stochastic (~90) is reading neutral and the flexible indicator Ichimoku Cloud (9, 26, 52, 26) baseline is also impartial at the moment. The MACd, a momentum oscillator that subtracts the longer-term moving average from the shorter-term moving average, shows that consolidation may take place in the short term. The 4-hour BCH/USD chart shows the two Simple Moving Averages (SMA) still have a decent gap with the short term 100 SMA still above the long term 200 SMA. This means that the bulls still have the reins and the path toward the least resistance is still the upside, but not for very long. According to order books, there’s some heavy resistance between the $300-325 zone and some other sell order stops above that region. On the backside, there are some solid foundations forming which will fend bears off at $250 through the $200 range. Bitcoin Cash Breaks 200-Day Average Overall, cryptocurrency enthusiasts are very positive about the market sentiment and the change of tides. Still, there’s uncertainty in the air on how long this bullish run will last and whether market whales are faking people out once again after the countless bull traps and dead cat bounces in 2018. Moreover, all eyes have been drawn to the massive BCH rally that’s been happening since the cryptocurrency smashed its 200-day moving average. Further, Crypto Facilities, a Kraken-based subsidiary, detailed earlier this week that both BCH and LTC futures contracts have towered over other asset contracts. In light of all that action, the popular exchange Huobi announced today it is launching BCH derivative contracts on April 5.

How 30 Full-Time Staff Created the New Crypto TV Network Blocktv

Blocktv is a new televised news source for the cryptocurrency community. News.Bitcoin.com recently visited the company’s headquarters in Israel to see what it takes to air a TV channel dedicated to reporting on the digital assets industry. Also Read: How a Large Crypto Mining Operation Is Handling the Current Market Tune in to Blockchain Television Blocktv’s main office is right across the road from the Israel Diamond Exchange building, at the very heart of the country’s business district. This central location offers easy access to the many crypto projects and service providers based in the area who can easily jump by to talk about the market. The large office gives the feeling of a modern TV channel and includes a professional studio, guest waiting and makeup rooms, as well as a central control room where the crew can monitor the filming and video feeds from all over the world. The company now employs 30 full-time staff members across its various departments and an additional cadre of about a dozen freelancers reporting from around the globe. According to Editor-in-Chief Ron Friedman, staff are tasked with reporting about the crypto community to the crypto community, while also being critical of the space they are covering and maintaining strict independence and healthy skepticism. The idea to create a television news channel dedicated to cryptocurrency was first put into action in June 2018. In December, the company focused on its core product, the live player, which was officially launched in January of this year. The shows are streamed live, both on Youtube and on the company’s own website. The harsh reality of ‘crypto winter’ might have affected the content of the news, but it didn’t the deter the channel’s launch. “Shortly after Blocktv was formed it became clear that the state of the industry was no longer the same as when the idea was first envisioned. The story changed. Instead of reporting on successful ICOs and new crypto billionaires, we found ourselves reporting on businesses closing and price falls,” recounted Friedman. However, he also added that the channel is already gaining interest from media partners. “After just a few short (albeit intense and trying) weeks, our broadcast is already available to hundreds of thousands of viewers through a series of partnerships with more than 15 industry news sites across the world.” The Israel Diamond Exchange building can be seen from Blocktv’s makeup room window News for the Digital Age The journalists and other professional staff working at the channel mainly have experience from various established mainstream media channels in Israel as well as international news organizations that report from the country. Despite this, the focus of the team seems to be on keeping their work fun and informal with show titles such as “Suck My Blockchain” and “Blockchain on Booze,” the latter being a panel where the guests have to discuss topics while battling insobriety. Yael Lavie, Blocktv anchorwoman “Blocktv is utilizing the new media world we live in, reporting online in a space that fits the digital world and is formatted for both the subject matter and the attention span of viewers in 2019,” explained anchorwoman Yael Lavie. “Having worked in media and journalism for the past 25 years, from ABC News to Sky News, to print and documentaries, I have had the privilege of seeing both the business as well as the audience evolve. As a journalist I am a firm believer that the most important job is to relay a story in an accessible and interesting way. The age we live in does not require a subject matter to be formally introduced to an audience that is a fast pace consuming one. They need to be interested, [and] that we do - we get them interested.” Is there enough demand for a TV news channel devoted to crypto assets like Blocktv?

Bitcoin Price Surpasses $5,000, as Crypto Market Capitalization Hits $171 Billion

Coinspeaker Bitcoin Price Surpasses $5,000, as Crypto Market Capitalization Hits $171 BillionWe are in the second day of the massive crypto market rally, and it looks like the bulls don’t wish to give up at this point. On Tuesday, April 2, Bitcoin (BTC) price made a massive recovery surging over $4600, a 13% price jump in a single day. Besides Bitcoin, bulls took the charge over the entire cryptocurrency market adding $15 billion to the overall market cap.On the second day of the rally, the scenario looks quite similar. The Bitcoin (BTC) price is up 5.5% as the world’s largest cryptocurrency is trading at $4923. Bitcoin is just short of its $5000, however, it has managed to trade above this level for a momentary period.The Bitcoin market cap has surged to $86.8 billion as the cryptocurrency continues to still dominate over 50% of the crypto market. Besides Bitcoin, almost all of the top-ten cryptocurrencies are showing gains between 5-20%. Ethereum (ETH), in the second position, has gained nearly 10% and is trading at $165 with a market cap of $17.3 billion. While XRP is trading at a price of $0.34 with a market cap of $14.5 billion.Litecoin (LTC) continues its upward journey with strong conviction trading at $79.61. EOS manages to cross the $5 levels with over 11% gains. The show stealer of the day is Bitcoin Cash (BCH) with a whopping 37.15% gains. At the press time, BCH is trading at $248 with $4.4 billion market cap.At the press time, the overall cryptocurrency market is witnessing a record-breaking $78 billion 24-hour trading volume.Shift in Investors SentimentWhile investors were looking behind the possible reason for Tuesday’s Bitcoin, Oliver von Landsberg, CEO of crypto firm BCB Group, provided the reason behind it. Speaking to Reuters, Landsberg said:“There has been a single order that has been algorithmically-managed across these three venues [Coinbase, Bitstamp, and Kraken], of around 20,000 BTC... If you look at the volumes on each of those three exchanges - there were in-concert, synchronized, units of volume of around 7,000 BTC in an hour”.Bitcoin bull Brian Kelly told CNBC that he’s witnessing a significant shift in the investor sentiment. He added:“All indications that we have — whether it be fundamentals, technicals, the quantitative analysis we do — all suggest that we probably have at least started to put in the bottoming process.”Furthermore, Kelly stresses on the fact that this move is “happening on improving fundamentals and improving institutional sentiment.” He says that Tuesday’s Bitcoin rally shows a broad-based institutional interest.“Even high net worth individuals, family offices, are starting to take a serious interest” in bitcoin, Kelly said. “There’s a couple of major brokerage firms that are rolling out some custody solutions. So there’s quite a bit going on under the surface.”Kelly also sets a reasonable target of $6000 for Bitcoin in the short term. It is certainly a moment of happiness for all the Bitcoin and cryptocurrency enthusiasts. Hope that this early April rally sets that stage for a massive recovery in 2019, and so we can see more institutional players like Bakkt joining the crypto market in the near time.Bitcoin Price Surpasses $5,000, as Crypto Market Capitalization Hits $171 Billion

Bitcoin.com may integrate Cashaccount.info to their block explorer, says Corbin Fraser

In a recent vlog for Bitcoin.com, Roger Ver, the Chief Executive Officer [CEO] of Bitcoin.com along with Bitcoin Web developer, Corbin Fraser shared some insights about the newly released software and applications in the crypto world. The web developer informed the audience about Cashaccount.info which is available on the mainnet for the public. Cashaccount.info provides a simpler way for users to share a Bitcoin cash address. Fraser informed that Copay, a Bitcoin wallet has given a green light to the software and are integrating it, along with many other wallets. He also mentioned that even Bitcoin.com is looking into and might integrate the cash account into their block explorer. Fraser also took the opportunity to address the privacy steps to be taken by the audience to ensure their data is secure. Fraser said: “If you’re concerned at all with privacy, I would recommend creating a new wallet specifically for this. Especially if you’re tying in your personal details personal name into the cash account ID.” There are also talks of integrating stealth address to ensure privacy especially “if you’re tying in your personal details personal name into the cash account ID.” The BCH proponent also talked about Bitbacker, an alternative website to Patreon which charges about 1% compared to Patreon which charges between 10% to 30%. The Bitcoin duo also discussed the privacy concerns on many applications like Reddit and quipped about making another video on this. “I think the censorship we’ve seen on places like Reddit r/Bitcoin is quite a bit stronger than even some of the censorship we’ve been seeing on Patreon” said Fraser. Ver and Fraser also discussed the feasibility of Gateway.cash. Ver explained the concept of Gateway cash and how convenient it is to the guests on his shows and cited the example credit cards and how they can be stopped from functioning from the end of the banks. However, this is not the case with Gateway.cash. Ver said: “If you host everything yourself and you have your private keys, nobody, in the entire world can stop you from receiving payments from anyone in the entire world which is very different than credit card or PayPal our bank account.” The post Bitcoin.com may integrate Cashaccount.info to their block explorer, says Corbin Fraser appeared first on AMBCrypto.

Bitcoin Cash Price Surpasses $250 Following Monster Bullish Run

As the bullish cryptocurrency market momentum continues without any real problems, it quickly becomes apparent not all alternative offerings will be able to follow suit. Bitcoin Cash doesn’t suffer from that problem, as it remains the most bullish market in the top 20. As the current Bitcoin Cash price sits above $250, it will be interesting to see where things head next. Can Anyone Stop the Bitcoin Cash Price Train? When Bitcoin remains this bullish for several days on end, it is a matter of time until the altcoins come under a lot of pressure. Not because they will note real losses because of dumps, but primarily because their ratio over Bitcoin is struggling so much it can negate the USD-based gains. Bitcoin Cash is one of the few coins which remains incredibly bullish in both USD and BTC terms, which is always interesting to keep an eye on. More specifically, the past 24 hours have resulted in major gains for BCH. A 39.8% push in USD value brings the current Bitcoin Cash price to $252.96. There is also a 32.3% rise in BCH/BTC, which elevates the ratio to 0.05115 Bitcoin. Very solid trends all across the board, which are facilitated by the overall trading volume surge affecting all markets. Bitcoin Cash hasn’t noted $2.527bn in trades for some time now, but today seems to be a good day for this altcoin after all. As one would come to expect from such a sea of green candles, a lot of people expect the “crypto winter” to be fully over at this time. Renata Nifield falls into this category, even though there is still plenty of bearish momentum that can materialize at any given moment. Since no one knows why the markets are moving up or why the trading volume has quadrupled, anything remains possible under these circumstances. Good morning, #bch! 40% up Goodbye, #cryptowinter — Renatha Nifield (@rnifield) April 3, 2019 It didn’t take long before this BCH uptrend started spewing conspiracy theories regarding Bitcoin and Blockstream as well. Fox0 illustrates how “Blockstream killed Bitcoin” and “Blockstream is holding back Bitcoin adoption for the second time” at this time. Very odd statement considering Bitcoin is seemingly doing quite well on its own. Moreover, Bitcoin Cash wouldn’t note these gains without Bitcoin’s momentum either. People are buying #bch because #blockstream killed #btc ... 40k+ unconfirmed transactions... blockstream guys are intercepting #bitcoin adoption for the second time! — Fox0 (@21fox0) April 3, 2019 When looking at the actual BCH chart, however, it would appear things are ripe for a correction. While few people will mind this 40% increase, it is evident such a steep uptrend in quick succession will normally not last very long. Bitcoin Cash has seen its upward and downward cycles since its inception, thus it is not unlikely another correction will occur before this week is over. Even so, now is the time to enjoy these gains and reap the profits before things potentially sour again. Hit #BitcoinCash $bch #bch $bab #bab #cryptocurrency #cryptotrader #trader #altcoin #altseason pic.twitter.com/sNWaFaWf8o — ElliottScalper (@ElliottScalper) April 3, 2019 When looking at the bigger picture, it is evident there are a lot of interesting trends taking shape in rather quick succession. While Bitcoin Cash clearly leads the pace in this regard, other markets are crumbling under the pressure in quick succession. It will be an interesting second half of the week to determine which markets are effectively worth their salt and which will slowly disappear into obscurity. How long this uptrend will remain in place, is a different matter altogether. Disclaimer: This is not trading or investment advice. The above article is for entertainment and education purposes only.
