Confira 3 criptomoedas que já começaram a surpreender em 2019

Por: Livecoins O mercado de criptomoedas carrega consigo o marasmo da queda sem precedentes vivida no final de 2018. Desde então, o preço do Bitcoin (BTC) caiu quase que pela metade e pouca surpresa aconteceu nos últimos meses. Com o mercado em baixa, 2019 começou com quedas e poucos sinais de uma real recuperação para as principais criptomoedas. Porém, em meio a grande estagnação dos preços, alguns altcoins chamaram a atenção dos investidores. Existem três altcoins que prometem surpreender o mercado em breve. Para quem acompanha diariamente a cotação do mercado, esses nomes podem não ser tão estranhos assim. Alguns deles já foram parar no topo dos melhores desempenhos entre as cem maiores criptomoedas recentemente. Isso prova que essas três criptomoedas têm um enorme potencial no mercado, confira: Factom (FCT) O Factom (FCT) não é um altcoin tão recente no mercado, já que a criptomoeda está em circulação desde 2014. Porém, em 2019 o Factom (FCT) demonstrou um bom desempenho, ao ver seu preço saltar em janeiro. Enquanto a maioria das criptomoedas acumulavam grandes perdas, o Factom (FCT) chegou a subir mais de 10% em algumas ocasiões. Além de um bom desempenho que começou a despontar no final de 2018, o Factom (FCT) representa também inovação tecnológica. Em maio do ano passado a empresa anunciou a descentralização total de seu blockchain, tornando a programação por trás do altcoin completamente aberta. Após esse importante passo, a criptomoeda fechou o ano com novas parcerias, como o Yooya. O aplicativo é popular China e funciona como uma rede de vídeos online. Com essas inovações, o Factom (FCT) pode crescer ainda mais em 2019. A criptomoeda chegou a atingir quase três vezes o seu valor atual há pouco mais de dois meses atrás, e, segundo analistas, pode voltar a subir em breve. 0x (ZRX) A crise que começou no último trimestre de 2018 no mercado fez o preço do 0x (ZRX) despencar, em um momento que a criptomoeda estava bem próxima de atingir US$ 1 novamente. Esse crescimento aconteceu após grandes exchanges passarem a comercializar o 0x (ZRX), no final do ano passado. Desse modo, esse altcoin ainda poderá surpreender os investidores com um crescimento inesperado para 2019. A grande aposta do 0x (ZRX) é na troca completamente descentralizada de ativos digitais. Isso significa que a criptomoeda planeja criar uma relação entre redes e blockchains e exchanges. Porém, por enquanto, o 0x (ZRX) suporta apenas tokens baseados na blockchain do Ethereum (ERC-20). Com a expansão do altcoin para outras redes, o 0x (ZRX) poderá ser considerado uma grande criptomoeda de forte tendência no mercado. Sendo assim, isso poderá refletir diretamente no preço do token no mercado, caso o token apresente novas soluções voltadas para a descentralização de trocas de criptomoedas. Jetcoin (JET) Com uma aposta para o mundo esportivo, o projeto da Jetcoin (JET) poderá ser um dos mais promissores do mercado. As criptomoedas já conquistaram diversos clubes e até mesmo alguns atletas já recebem seus salários em ativos digitais. Com essa ascensão, a proposta da Jetcoin (JET) poderá conquistar esse setor que começa a introduzir a tecnologia blockchain. Através da Jetcoin (JET) os usuários poderão investir diretamente em atletas e jogadores credenciados. Além disso, o rendimento do atleta poderá resultar em ganhos para os detentores da criptomoeda, como um sistema de recompensas. Com várias parcerias em 2018, este ano a Jetcoin (JET) poderá ser uma das grandes surpresas no mercado, já que o token é pouco conhecido entre os investidores. O artigo Confira 3 criptomoedas que já começaram a surpreender em 2019 foi publicado originalmente em Livecoins.

Cryptocurrencies: 3 Rising Stars In 2019 and Beyond

Many cryptocurrencies giants such as Bitcoin saw a quick decline after the first half of 2018, though analysts are optimistic cryptocurrencies will keep rising in 2019. Generally, the possibility of cryptocurrency replacing the outmoded banking and financial system is still gaining traction as we are seeing many other cryptocurrencies projects emerging. The goal of most of these cryptocurrencies is to provide innovative technology that enhances the fast, reliable and consistent exchange of data among members. However, some new projects are expected to rise and keep inclining in the long term. Therefore, let’s take a look at three rising stars in 2019 and beyond. Factom (FCT) By identifying Bitcoin’s shortfalls of being a practical blockchain for Enterprise data solutions, blockchain innovations company, Factom, is aimed at becoming the industry’s top provider of blockchain data source solutions at all stages. The company reacted to the difficulty in synchronization and the challenge of protecting distributed records and data by developing the Factom blockchain as open source, achieving complete decentralization in May 2018. Factom in Q4 2018 announced important partnerships with one being China’s most prominent independent business-to-business online video networks, Yooya, which is set to power the Factom Harmony platform through Wancloud, Factom’s re-seller in China. Factom have announced other good partnership that will help integrate the Factom Harmony blockchain-as-a-service platform into their solution. Nonetheless, the price of Factom now is $6.07, and its current circulating supply is 8,745,102 FCT with a market cap of $53,057,143. There is a link with this adoption and the price rise of Factom, with analysts predicting a long term rise. Jetcoin (JET) Another amazing rising star is Jetcoin. Development mainly to support up and coming athletes and talents, Jetcoin gives fans a bit of future earning of various talents they follow, that is the more success the talent achieve, the more fans of that talent gains financially. Explicitly, Jetcoin is a means fans and investors to support various chosen talents enthusiastically. Jetcoin has many partnerships, with one being the Lagardère Sports Group partnership in 2018 to market the agency’s brands, like designer sneakers, during 13 English Premier League matches. Also, recently, Jetcoin Institute allied with an Irish company called Prime Sports Rights, to represent football stars such as Manchester City players Danilo Luiz and Fernandinho and Real Madrid player Marcelo Vieira, to monetize exclusive social media engagements. These and many other partnerships promise a great future for the cryptocurrency. Moreover, Jetcoin now has a price of $0.027 and its current circulating supply 6,822,895 JET with a market cap of $186,252. Jetcoin has the potential to transform the finance industry profoundly. It also has many positive predictions from analyst and should be a long term choose on your list. 0x (ZRX) 0x is one of the hottest and recently trending cryptocurrency. 0x was created to be used for “powering decentralized exchange.” For now, 0x only supports ERC20, but stories going around suggest that 0x might incorporate into other chains in the future. Many factors might drive the value of the 0x up from time to time, and independently, 0x might be turned into one of the most valuable coins in the crypto marketplace which is absolutely a plus for the cryptocurrency. Also, due to the strong links of 0x’s advisers to Coinbase, this links bought rumors occasionally that 0x will be added on Coinbase before becoming a reality as Coinbase now allows you buy and sell ZRX. To quickly say 0x protocol could be the future of cryptocurrency exchanges is not absurd as all indicators make the cryptocurrency a brighter star. In any case, 0x is now priced $0.237360, and its current circulating supply is 584,053,225 ZRX with a market cap of $138,631,058.

Crypto Market Wrap: Tron Outperforms Top 50 With 10% Gain

Market Wrap Crypto markets are flat once again, Tron is on a flyer while Bitcoin goes deeper into bear territory. There has been no sign of any upwards movement on crypto markets which have remained bearish below $120 billion. The only good news is that there has not been another major dump (yet) and things have remained stable over the past 24 hours. Bitcoin has not broken above $3,600 over the past day but has stayed steady at $3,580 for most of it. A few hours ago BTC started to move south again with a drop to $3,560 and things are looking grim as daily volume drops below $5 billion. Ethereum has not moved since this time yesterday and is still stuck at $117 in bearish territory. XRP however has fallen back a percent or so reducing the market cap gap back to $750 million. Both crypto assets are consolidating below previous levels of support though so could fall further. Only one altcoin in the top ten is pumping at the moment and that is Tron. Yesterday’s news of the massive BitTorrent token airdrop has likely to have driven fomo hungry traders back to TRX as it posts a 9.5% climb on the day. TRX has reached $0.026 (730 satoshis) with trade volume doubling overnight, it has outperformed the top 50 and is closing up on Litecoin in eighth which has not moved on the day. The rest of the top ten is also motionless at the time of writing. There are a couple of glimmers of green in the top twenty, namely Monero and Nem making very minor gains. The rest are flat or falling back a little with Iota leading the drop at 1.6% down. The very erratic Buggyra Coin is getting pumped again as today’s fomo champion of the top one hundred with an 80% spike. Factom has also made a 20% jump on the day but only these two are gaining double figures. Following its pump over the past 48 hours TenX is falling back again now dropping 10% making it the day’s worst performing altcoins at the time of writing. Total market capitalization has not moved much over the past 24 hours and is still around $119 billion. Daily trade volume however has fallen back to $14 billion as things ice over again in crypto land. Over the past seven days markets have contracted by 4%, a similar loss can be measured on the monthly chart. Market Wrap is a section that takes a daily look at the top 20 cryptocurrencies during the current trading session and analyses the best-performing ones, looking for trends and possible fundamentals.

Coinbase’s Q4 accomplishments hints staking feature; possible listing of Tezos [XTZ]

Brian Armstrong, the CEO of Coinbase wrote a blog about Q4 accomplishments of 2018 and briefly mentioned the tasks they will be focussing on in the future. This blog mentions clearly that Coinbase is looking at a feature of staking to be made available in the near future and more proofs to substantiate it. Coinbase recently partnered with TokenSoft Global Markets, a broker-dealer registered with the US Securities and Exchange Commission [SEC]. In addition to the above, Coinbase Custody has also partnered with Electronic Transaction Clearing [ETC], which is also an SEC-registered broker-dealer and FINRA member. Moreover, Coinbase reflected upon its custody service in the blog, it stated: “We established Coinbase Custody as a limited purpose trust company under New York State Banking Law to operate as an independent Qualified Custodian, allowing us to compliantly store more assets and potentially add new features like staking.” Further into the blog, Armstrong mentions Coinbase’s successful partnerships/investments which conveniently includes “Staked.us”. Staked.us is already running test nets of Ethereum [ETH]’s Casper, EOS and Cosmos. The website also stated that it has plans to add Tezos, Dfinity, NuCypher, Livepeer, Keep, Factom and Ark nodes in the coming months. The cryptocurrency community already started this speculation on Reddit taking into consideration the above-mentioned facts. Redditors in the post speculate that Tezos could very well be the next cryptocurrency that will be added to Coinbase’s list. Mikeroyale, a Redditor commented: “Looks like Tezos is imminent Coinbase, have noticed their server answering to XTZ requests... “ Furthermore, Staked.us has already indicated that Tezos is live and users can delegate XZT for staking. The website also shows an annual staking yield of 9.7% for Tezos. Another Redditor, aeaf123 commented: “Sooner or later it seems plausible. Unless you are in the know this is all just a hypothetical anyway. Everyone would be pretty stoked about it im sure. Tezos does keep a low profile. What I think is good about that is its speaks more on its legitimacy opposed to other things that are more hype and less actual substance.” The post Coinbase’s Q4 accomplishments hints staking feature; possible listing of Tezos [XTZ] appeared first on AMBCrypto.

Crypto Exchange Coincheck to Receive Full Licensing from Japanese Authorities

Coincheck, the crypto exchange that lost over $500 million in investors funds in early-2018, is now close to receiving full licensing from Japan’s Financial Services Agency (FSA), signaling that the exchange tightened their platform’s security and cleaned up the management practices that led to the hack. The news regarding the regulatory authority’s decision to issue the exchange their operational licensing was first reported by Nikkei Asian Review, who stated that the license will be issued by the end of 2018. Crypto Exchange Regulation to Reduce Chances of Future Hacks As reported by Nikkei in January of 2018, the hack, which resulted in the theft of NEM tokens, was the direct result of poor security features and exchange mismanagement, which led to multiple vulnerabilities that encouraged hackers to target Coincheck over other, more secure, platforms. Koichiro Wada, the chief executive officer of Coincheck, spoke to Reuters about the reasons behind the platform’s vulnerability, and blamed the lack of experienced employees for the platform’s flaws. “We were aware we didn’t have enough people working on internal checks, management and system risk. We strived to expand using headhunters and agencies, but ended up in this situation,” he said. Following the hack, the FSA swiftly moved to enforce regulations on crypto exchanges that would hold them to similar requirements that banks are held to, scrutinizing their business plans, ensuring that anti-hacking measures are in place, and that the management team is being held to high standards. The FSA issued two separate improvement orders to Coincheck after the hack occurred, and on both occasions found that it lacked sufficient safeguards to protect investor’s funds and to prevent money laundering from occurring. Coincheck Trading Volume Drops, Exchange Begins Restoring Trading Services Although the exchange refunded all the lost funds to investors, the news regarding their platform’s issues has led to a declining trading volume that signals that the damage to the exchange may be irreversible, regardless of the receipt of their licensing from the FSA. The exchange’s trading volume, which has been continuously dropping due to the declining crypto markets and decreased investor confidence in the platform, is currently sitting at just under $24 million USD according to CoinMarketCap. Coincheck resumed new account openings and customer deposits in late-October, initially only resuming trading for four cryptocurrencies, and limiting new accounts to Japan residents exclusively. It wasn’t until November that the platform resumed NEM trading, and only a few weeks ago they revealed that they would resume trading for XRP and FCT tokens. A translated statement from Coincheck regarding the re-listing of XRP and FCT reads in part: “In connection with unauthorized remittance of the virtual currency NEM...the Company suspended the services partially in order to investigate the cause of customer asset protection and unauthorized remittance, and formulated a business improvement plan. In implementing this plan, we have tried to improve our management control system and internal control system. In addition, with the cooperation of external experts who carried out a step-by-step safety audit, we have restarted the service that enables the receipt, purchase and exchange of XRP and FCT.” It is likely that the exchange will be slowly restoring full trading services leading up to the issuance of their licensing at the end of the year.

Bitcoin Payment Processor OpenNode Gets $1.25M From Investors

Bitcoin payment processor OpenNode has announced a seed investment round of $1.25 million with venture capitalist Tim Draper and early-stage investment firm Draper Associates.According to a published post on its Medium page, the startup revealed that the funds would be used to grow its team and push for the adoption of bitcoin."With the close of our seed round, we now have the opportunity to scale the team and accelerate the pace of bitcoin’s adoption. Along with scaling, a portion of our investment will go towards legal services to ensure OpenNode’s compliance," João Almeida, co-founder and CTO of OpenNode, told Bitcoin Magazine via email.Tim Draper, American investor and founder of Draper Associates, is known for being bullish on bitcoin and is no stranger to backing blockchain startups with meaningful use cases. He led a $4.2 million funding round in blockchain data network Factom and a $760,000 round in payroll startup Bitwage. When quizzed on why his company settled on Draper Associates, Almeida said the venture capitalist was in tune with what they wanted to achieve."We were very selective with whom we chose to bring on as our investor. We are very excited to have Draper Associates on board because they share in our long-term vision of hyperbitcoinization. We plan on staying as a bitcoin-only payments platform, and Tim gets that."For OpenNode, the growth has been steady and healthy despite the downturn in the market. According to Almeida, the continuous development of infrastructure from protocol developers would see the company grow even further."By 2019, we plan to be the leading bitcoin payments platform. Also, more importantly, we aim to push microtransactions onto gaming/streaming/content platform and create payment models never before possible."OpenNode was founded in April 2018 as a payment processor that facilitates bitcoin payments for individuals and businesses. The processor supports bitcoin protocol implementations like SegWit and the Lightning Network, offering instant settlement of transactions with low fees.Perhaps, one of the standout features of OpenNode is its integration with the Lightning Network, which has seen much integration from blockchain startups, since Lightning Labs launched the first beta release in March 2018. .Included in a long list of companies that have integrated the network are SparkSwap, BTCPayServer and CoinGate. Blockchain firm Blockstream, which now allows users to transfer bitcoin through satellites, also added support for Lightning Network transactions, allowing users to settle data transmission using Lightning Network micropayments.Last month, Bitcoin Magazine reported that over 4,070 nodes were supported with a collective network capacity that stood at 223.65 BTC. At press time, nodes supported has increased to 4,586 with a network capacity that has shot up to 488.06 BTC. This article originally appeared on Bitcoin Magazine.

Crypto Price Watch: Litecoin (LTC), Revain (R) and Factom (FCT) Surge in the Top-50 as Other Altcoins Continue to Struggle

Over the course of the past 6 hours, Litecoin has gained considerable financial traction, with the price of a single LTC token currently hovering around the $27 mark. As can be seen from the chart below, Litecoin has been in a tear of sorts for the past 48 hours, with the currency rising from a respectable $23.82 to where it stands now (all within a span of less than two days). It is also worth mentioning that since December 16, the overall market capitalization of Litecoin has grown from $1.4 Billion to $1.635 Billion. What’s Causing Litecoin to Soar? Upon closer inspection, it seems as though the positive upward trend being displayed by Litecoin is due to Coingate recently announcing support for the currency. For those not aware, Coingate is a crypto payment service that previously only allowed its customers to use Bitcoin and Ethereum for facilitating global monetary transfers. @litecoin community, we bear some exciting news! Our #Litecoin #LightningNetwork is ready to be deployed and will soon be live on CoinGate! Keep up with the news as we’re getting closer! Here’s a little sneak peek @LTCFoundation @SatoshiLite @starkness! pic.twitter.com/QahcnFlYc5 — CoinGate (@CoinGatecom) December 13, 2018 In relation to the matter, a spokesperson for Coingate noted that the firm was all set to deploy the Litecoin Lightning Network on their servers as a result of which, it now appears as though more than 1000 merchants will have the ability to send/receive near instant LN payments. Revain and Factom See Biggest Gains Over 48-Hr Span Two of the biggest alt-coin gainers from the past few days have been Revain and Factom, with the two currencies rising by a staggering 44% and 15% in value (respectively). Factom’s rise can be traced back to the start of the month when the asset was trading for $7.82. However, since then, the currency has surged quite substantially, with the top-50 token now hovering just below the $10 mark. Similarly, in the case of Revain, the currency started its ascent just a few days back when a single token was being traded at $0.01. However, at press time, the currency is now closing in on the $0.175 mark. Final Take As most of our readers already know, the crypto market is currently in the grips of a cold, cold winter that promises to usher in even more misery in the coming few days. To put things into perspective, since mid-November, the digital currency sector as a whole has seen its total market cap drop from a sizeable $211 Billion to a meager $104.7 Billion (at press time).

Japan’s Monex Group Launching Crypto Exchange in the US

Monex Group, a major Japanese financial services company and the parent company of cryptocurrency exchange Coincheck, has unveiled its plan to launch a crypto exchange in the U.S. next quarter. The company has also shared its expansion plans for Coincheck in Japan. Also read: Indian Supreme Court Moves Crypto Hearing, Community Calls for Positive Regulations U.S. Expansion Tokyo Stock Exchange-listed Monex Group (8698.T) held a business strategy briefing session on Wednesday to outline its U.S. expansion plan through its subsidiary Tradestation. Oki Matsumoto. The group acquired Coincheck, one of Japan’s largest crypto exchanges, after it was hacked in January. Tradestation, a U.S.-based wholly owned subsidiary of the group, offers online electronic brokerage services to individual and institutional traders. Monex CEO Oki Matsumoto said at the briefing that Tradestation “plans to offer virtual currency transactions ... in the first quarter of 2019,” Reuters reported. Tradestation CEO John Bartleman was quoted by Coin Post as saying: For cryptocurrency business, we have been preparing the virtual currency service in the U.S. for the past several months. We believe it can start in the first quarter of 2019. According to Cointelegraph Japan, the new U.S. exchange will list the top five cryptocurrencies but the actual list has yet to be finalized. In addition, the company is in the process of acquiring money transmitter licenses in all U.S. states. In December last year, Tradestation began offering the trading of bitcoin futures contracts by the Cboe Futures Exchange. Expansion Plans for Japan Matsumoto also provided an update on Coincheck’s application to register as a cryptocurrency operator with Japan’s Financial Services Agency (FSA). “We have been consulting with the Financial Services Agency” about registration, he said, emphasizing that Coincheck resumed its exchange business last month. Currently, the exchange supports the trading of BTC, BCH, ETH, ETC, LSK, FCT, XRP, XEM, and LTC.

Currently, there are 16 registered crypto exchanges in Japan and three deemed dealers. Monex detailed that since the acquisition of Coincheck, many improvements have been made to the platform, including a change in the management structure and delisting anonymous cryptocurrencies.

Cryptocurrency Market Update: The Friday Dump is Getting Tedious

FOMO Moments Cryptocurrency markets in predictable pain as the week ends; Bitcoin Cash, SV, getting killed, Stellar not far behind. As if scripted by some kind of delirious director, crypto markets are dumping again this Friday. The same thing happened last Friday and the one before that and the end of week selloff is getting a little tedious. Bitcoin fell to its yearly low again a few hours ago when it dumped 5% from over $3,400 to below $3,290. This marks a revisit to the 2018 low BTC made on December 8, almost a week ago. As before BTC managed to bounce off this weak support zone but it won’t be three times lucky if all the analysts are to be believed. Ethereum is forever losing ground as it drops even further, another 3.5% on the day taking it back to around $85 - the lowest ETH price for 18 months. Altcoins are bleeding again as we end another painful week in crypto land. Without even looking at the top ten you can probably make a good guess which one is falling the most. Bitcoin Cash yet again is getting hammered with a 9% plunge back to $85. Its rival Bitcoin SV is taking a similar beating and Stellar is not far behind with a 6% slide. Most altcoins in the top twenty are losing 4-6 percent since yesterday at the time of writing. Only Ethereum Classic and Maker are treading water with no losses on the day so far. As usual there are a couple of fomo pumps occurring and the lucky teams today include Dentacoin and Waves, the only two cryptos making double digits. Again, from the same script as the Friday dump, are the altcoins in pain today, namely yesterday’s fomo spikes - Bitcoin Private, DEX, WAX and Factom dumping double figures. Total market capitalization is almost back to its lowest level for 2018. Dropping 3.7% on the day markets are just below $105 billion at the moment - not far to go to set a new record low. After reaching a weekly peak of $117 billion markets have dumped back to last weekend’s low levels and the likelihood of them dropping further is high.

Trading in Factom was volatile yesterday, but the price has managed to continue its increase and currently trades close to $14.

The retracement resulted in price dropping close to around $7, but it managed to bounce from this point. Price has since managed to rise above resistance at the 200 EMA. It returned to this point yesterday, but the level acted as support. Momentum has been strong on the side of buyers in Factom with both the RSI and MACD increasing. Factom Daily Chart - Source: TradingView.com The initial increase in Factom took place from support around $4. It has since increased by over 200% and looks likely to continue its increase. The fact that Factom has been able to appreciate during bearish market conditions would indicate that investors consider the project fundamentally strong and may be setting up for an even better performance the next time the market is predominantly bullish. The project has significant funding backing it with investments from Tim Draper’s Draper Associates and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. The project deals with trust and data integrity solutions by applying blockchain technology. Key Takeaways: Factom continues to outperform despite the recent bearish market conditions. Volatile price action trading yesterday met support at the 200 EMA but since went on to increase to around $14.

Cryptocurrency Market Update: Binance Coin (BNB) Climbing as EOS Gets Crushed

FOMO Moments Markets recouping daily losses, Binance Coin and Nem are in the green, EOS is getting hammered. The downward motion on crypto markets has continued today as digital currencies slid further back before making a recovery. Monday’s declines have carried on into Tuesday during the Asian trading session but total market capitalization has managed to recoup to similar levels below $130 billion a couple of hours ago. Bitcoin bulls have failed to keep the digital currency above $4,000 causing it to drop into dangerous territory. A 5% dump saw BTC fall to an intraday low of $3,840 a couple of hours ago before it managed to bounce back. At the time of writing Bitcoin had pulled back to just above $4k again. Ethereum has fallen back to $112 and does not look like making any discernible recovery anytime soon. Altcoins are all still red at the moment with some getting more punishment than others. In the top ten EOS is getting pounded with a 10% dive to $2.55 as more centralization woes plague the project. As has been the case for a few weeks now Bitcoin Cash is collapsing, it was the worst performing crypto in November and has lost another 6% today. There is only one winner in the top twenty at the moment and that is Binance Coin climbing 9% on the day. BNB has reached $5.60 as it partners with Decentraland with a MANA competition and crypto Airbnb platform Tripio. Nem and Dogecoin are also gaining a little but the rest are falling, Ethereum Classic and Bitcoin Gold by the most at 6%. Pump of the day goes to Factom again adding 27%, ODEM and Pundi X are also performing strongly at the moment with double figure gains. As predicted, yesterday’s fomo altcoins are dumping today, namely Centrality, Mithril and MobileGo, all dropping double digits along with EOS. Total crypto market capitalization has managed to bounce back to yesterday’s levels after hitting a low of $124 billion a couple of hours ago. At the time of writing it is around $129 billion which is no gain over Monday. Since last Tuesday markets have gained 4% but since the same time last month they have been smashed 38%.

Factom [FCT] Continues to Outperform With 200% Increase

The overall performance for 2018 has been extremely bearish for cryptocurrencies. There have been huge amounts of value lost in almost every cryptocurrency. The declines accelerated over the past few weeks led by market leader Bitcoin dropping from around $6400 to a 2018 low below $3500. Factom has been one exception to the recent bearish market conditions seen. Price has increased around 200% over the past month moving from support at $4 to a current price around $12. The project has robust partnerships behind it with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation being one of the contributors to the project. The project met some resistance at the 200 EMA during the increase. This along with a bearish divergence taking place between price and RSI resulted in price dropping back last week, but it has since continued its appreciation. Price dropped down to near $7 after meeting the resistance but is now continuing its increase with strong momentum. Both the RSI and MACD have been increasing indicative of the strong buyer momentum. Today’s trading has been volatile as traders try to assess the return to increasing movements. A low of $10 has been formed today while the high is around $14. Although there may be more drops due to today’s volatile movements in Factom, the overall outlook looks bullish with the strong performance and bullish momentum for the altcoin. Factom Daily Chart - Source: Tradingview.com Key Takeaways: Factom has been one of the altcoins outperforming despite bearish market conditions being seen across the rest of the market. Factom met some resistance at the 200 EMA during its increase, and this combined with a bullish divergence between price and RSI resulted in price retracing to around $7. Momentum is strongly on the side of buyers with both the RSI and MACD continuing to increase. Trading has been volatile today as traders assess the return to sharp price increases. Overall, the outlook looks bullish for Factom given the strong buyer momentum and outperformance.

Cryptocurrency Market Update: $10 Billion Dumped as The Dead Cat Bounces

FOMO Moments Crypto markets predictably dumping this weekend, Bitcoin SV, Cardano and Neo getting hurt. As predicted crypto markets have dumped again after a few days of solid gains and the dead cat has bounced. Over $10 billion has flooded out wiping out all progress made this week. Total market capitalization is back below $130 billion and heading south again. Bitcoin led the lemmings once again when it plunged almost 9% from $4,300 to a low of $3,940 a few hours ago. BTC has since recovered to back around the $4,000 level but further losses are likely. Ethereum tumbled in predictable fashion with a loss of over 6% to a $112 low for the day where it currently trades. Altcoins are all bleeding again during Asian trading today. Bitcoin SV dropping the most with over 12% down towards $90, its brother BCH not far behind with an 8% slide. Cardano is losing a similar amount as it slips closer to dropping out of the top ten again. Stellar has retained its fourth spot above Bitcoin Cash despite dropping 6%. The rest in the top ten are dropping 4 to 6 percent on the day at the time of writing. The top twenty is enduring heavier losses this Saturday with Neo, Zcash and Ethereum Classic all shedding 8 to 10 percent at the moment. The rest are falling around 6 to 8 percent on the day. Yesterday’s fomo pump is still going today as Theta Token adds another 40% during the bleed out. It would be unwise to bet against it being the biggest dumper tomorrow however. Factom and MOAC are still climbing at the time of writing. Dumping the pump is Bitcoin Private nosediving 18% on the day, closely followed by Chainlink dropping 15% during Asian trading. Today’s dump has been predicted as crypto markets dropped $10 billion in a few hours. Total market capitalization currently stands just below $130 billion and is poised for further declines which may mirror last Sunday’s big dump to the lowest point of the year. All gains made during the week have now been lost in the 7% slide and there are dark clouds on the horizon in crypto land.

Cryptocurrency Market Update: Real Recovery or Dead Cat Bounce?

FOMO Moments Markets are still gaining, Bitcoin SV, Cardano, Tron and Verge on the up. The recovery on crypto markets has continued for a second day but has slowed down somewhat. Percentage gains today are less than what they were yesterday but market capitalization is approaching $140 billion once again. Many are calling a ‘dead cat bounce’ on Bitcoin indicating that it will meet resistance at $4,200 and plunge back into the depths below $4,000 again. BTC has made 7% on the day and reached this resistance level just passing it to clear $4,300 few hours ago. Ethereum has not been so fortunate with a smaller gain on the day to take it just above $120. ETH is really struggling at the moment with the threat of further ICO selloffs and EOS and Tron snapping at its heels. Most altcoins are in the green again today but gains are smaller. Leading the way in the top ten at the time of writing is Cardano which has reversed yesterday’s dump to gain 12% back again. Stellar has remained above EOS with 9% added, Litecoin has 8%, and Bitcoin SV has remained in the top ten with a 6% gain on the day. The top twenty’s top coin is Tron with a 22% jump to $0.015. Odyssey 3.2 has just been released which could be driving momentum. Neo and Zcash are also still gaining around 10% on the day but the rest are about 4-6 percent up. Tezos is the only coin in the red in the top 50 aside from stablecoins. Bitcoin Private is still surging and tops the one hundred chart with a fomo driven pump of 50% at the moment. Also getting a good spurt of almost 50% on the day is Verge which has recently been listed on Bithumb. Factom is regaining losses too, up 40%. [New Coin Listing] Weshow Token (#WET) and Verge (#XVG) will be listed on #Bithumb! ■Timeline: November 29 (Thu), 2018 in the afternoon. UTC+8 (KST) Visit Bithumb website and trade newly listed cryptocurrencies https://t.co/6MRxyQeeQV pic.twitter.com/Q6pxfd46Yu — Bithumb (@BithumbOfficial) November 29, 2018 There are no real losers dumping right now as altcoins are mostly all in recovery mode. Total crypto market capitalization has added another 6.8% on the day to reach $140 billion. This is around the level it reached after the second dump so things could go south again very quickly unless momentum is sustained. Trade volume has almost reached $20 billion but it is unlikely we are out of the woods yet.

Cryptocurrency Market Update: Another Rebound Which May Not Last

FOMO Moments Markets rebound again, but have a long way to go; Monero, Nem and Zcash rising Bitcoin SV dumping hard. There has been another rebound today as markets bounce between two low levels. Yesterday’s decline has reversed as that $7 billion has been funneled back into crypto today to take market capitalization back over $130 billion again. Bitcoin has pulled back the 7% it lost yesterday to take it back above $4,000 again, but only just. BTC hit that support zone of $3,650 for the third time yesterday and bounced off it again. A short spurt a few hours ago has propelled Bitcoin back towards its resistance level at $4,100 which it has also hit a couple of times. Ethereum is slow to do anything these days though it has been dragged back from the sub $100 cliff by 7% to $115 at the time of writing. It is completely tethered to the movements of Bitcoin at the moment as most cryptos are. Altcoins are generally in the green during the day’s Asian trading session. The biggest climber in the top ten over the past 24 hours has been Monero, gaining 11% to knock Cardano down to eleventh. Stellar and Litecoin have both clawed back 9%, Bitcoin Cash and EOS have moved very little, and Bitcoin SV has dumped 10% down to $90, sliding back down the chart it only entered yesterday. Further down in the top twenty Nem and Zcash are making 12%, with Ethereum Classic and Neo close to 10% on the day. Continuing to fall back down the market cap charts along with Cardano is VeChain and OmiseGO. Big fomo driven pumps at the fat end of the top one hundred altcoins list are happening for Bitcoin Private. A listing on Changehero has boosted BTCP which is up over 30% at the moment. Zilliqa, Digibyte and Verge are all making more than 17% on the day. Joining Bitcoin SV at the messy end of the table is Factom and ODEM dumping all recent gains in a well repeated pattern. There are only a handful of altcoins losing ground today though. Total crypto market capitalization has gained 5.6% on the day taking it back to $131 billion where it was on Monday. Trade volume is up to $18 billion which is higher than it has been for quite some time, discounting the big purge last week. Since the same time last Wednesday however markets are still down 9%.

BTC/USD Price Analysis: Bitcoin Support at $3,600, Path to $4,500?

After two weeks of incessant sell pressure and analysts giving up on bulls, it seems like BTC/USD sellers are exhausted. Notice that BTC is finding minor support at $3,600 or Nov 25 floors and if today close higher then we might see a temporary recovery towards $4,700. On the flip side and Vinny Lingham projections will be valid. Latest Bitcoin News 10 months after the unfortunate hack that saw $530 million worth of NEM siphoned off from Coincheck, the Japanese exchange is back in operation after reinstating deposits and purchases of XRP and Factom (FCT). This now means users can deposit and withdraw in fiat—Yen and crypto. That’s aside from allowing sign ups. Its lending service is now back in operation though traders won’t leverage their trading neither will they be able to deposit fiat from convenience stores. Read: Report: Blockchain Market to Be Worth over $28 Billion by 2025 As Coincheck gears up, BitMex Insurance Fund now holds 18,851 BTC. According to the exchange, the fund is used to prevent auto-deleveraging traders’ positions and the fund grows from market liquidation executed at a better price than at bankruptcy level. Because of this, online commentators now think this minor Bitcoin accumulation would help shore prices after two weeks of turmoil that saw BTC sink $1,500 hours after the disastrous hash rate war between Bitcoin Cash SV and ABC. Read: CNBC Tech Correspondent: Bitcoin’s Survival Hinges on People Believing in It While it would be the perfect shot in the arm if bulls find a way and bounce above $5,000, market analysts are shying away from bullish comments. While talking to CNBC Fast Money, Vinny Lingham of civic talks of Crypto winter where he projects that Bitcoin prices will be trapped within a tight range between $3,000 and $5,000 till end of Q2 2019. During this time, he says, there will be a lot of short-term buys which will surely help in recovery. BTC/USD Price Analysis Weekly Chart At spot prices, BTC/USD is down 23 percent in the weekly chart and unfortunately for bulls, bears are not slowing down. Though we expect a temporary pullback, the past two weeks draw down has shaken coin holders to the core and with the emergence of a new faction—the sodlers, we could as well see a temporary reprieve offering these sellers another opportunity to unload their stash further fueling this sell frenzy. Unless otherwise there are strong bulls driving price above our minor resistances at $4,700 and maybe $5,000, we shall retain a bearish outlook expecting prices to test $3,000 by the end of the week as price action complement week ending Nov 18 bear breakout pattern. Daily Chart In line with our last BTC/USD price analysis, sellers are clearly in control and as mentioned above, aggressive traders can take every opportunity to unpack their BTC holdings more so if bulls fail to clear the $4,700 mark assuming prices bounce back from spot. After all, they may now that BTC is finding short-term floors at $3,600 or Nov 25 lows. However, if buyers breach and close above $4,700 then we may see a temporary rally towards $5,000 and even to $5,800 as the market sparks back to action.

Crypto Market Update Nov.27: Crypto Clearance. What To Expect Next

A stormy week has gone by in the crypto market. Bitcoin continues its downward trend and other alt coins are crashing. The ongoing correction brings with it the usual question of whether and where the turning point will come. It is difficult to say whether the market is nearing the end of the correction and if we rely on past experience, it appears that the market correction has been going on for about two years, and we have not yet been through a year since the last correction began. Bitcoin is highly speculative and it is still too early to quantify the value of its technology. If and when adoption and mass use of Bitcoin appear to be widespread, only then can its price be estimated more reliably. Until then, market events and trading psychology will continue to cause volatility and possibly an ETF endorsement could trigger another upswing in the near future. This is not financial advice.. In addition, the entire market looks up to the halvening when the quantity of Bitcoin produced from mining is cut by half. In the past, the halvening effected the price of Bitcoin and the next halvening will happen in May 2020. If all this is happening, we must be encouraged to remember that despite the market’s decline, the infrastructure continues to be built. It will take time for the market and the general public to learn about the value of decentralization and how it can change the way people conduct themselves, especially about the transparency of the monetary system with blockchain technology. It is also important to note that the market cap shrinking to a value of 121 billion opens the possibility of large players to manipulate prices. At the same time, the hype of 2017 caught the attention of many institutional investors who are considering their entry into the market. Will they see the decline as an opportunity to buy cheaply or to forget about cryptocurrency completely?? We will not know until the near future. For altcoins the story is different and the trend is mixed considering the relationship with theUSD. . Most alts suffer because they are traded and measured against Bitcoin and therefore the impact on them is stronger and most of them are in the red. On the other hand, when traded against Bitcoin, some of the alts are actually on the rise, or trading around their floors and do not continue to lose value in relation to Bitcoin. For example, Factom continues its rise of around 50% this week and it is impossible not to pay attention to Bitcoin SV, which slipped to 8th place in terms of market cap, with a 122% rise against Bitcoin last week. It seems that the market is still producing interest, which can stimulate another wave. In conclusion, the nerve index is rising from the ego war being waged by Bitcoin Cash, the regulation tightening around ICOs and the media that has returned to eulogize Bitcoin as a passing bubble. In the background, the hash rate is declining after two consecutive years of steady increase. But the last word has not yet been said.

Daily Cryptocurrency News - 26th November 2018

Here are the most important cryptocurrency news of 26th November 2018: Japanese Cryptocurrency Exchange Coincheck Resume Its Service For Ripple (XRP) And Factom (FCT) After suffering the worse hack of 2018, Coincheck has now resumed services for all its nine cryptocurrencies available for trading. The Monex Group company announced on Monday, 26th November 2018 that the platform is now usable and safe for cryptocurrency traders. Their registered traders as well as new ones can deposit and purchase Ripple (XRP), Factom (FCT) as well as Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), Ethereum Classic (ETC), Litecoin (LTC) Bitcoin Cash (BCH), NEM (XEM), Lisk (LSK). The last two cryptocurrencies on the list were XRP and FCT - which were added today. The platform is live, though its missing some of its old features like: leveraged transaction , JPY depositing through convenience stores and a way for users to pay power bills with crypto.CoinCheck was hacked of $533 Million worth of cryptocurrency in January and has been acquired by the Monex Group in April for an amazing account of $33.5 Millions. Right now, the platform have a $28 Million in trading volume over the last 24 hours. One of the facts that made the users come back to Coincheck - even though it was hacked - its the fact that they accepted the incident and refunded all of their trader. Companies like BitGrail which were hacked of a lower amount couldn’t do this and they ended up with the remaining Bitcoin seized by the Italian Government. Ohio - The First State to Accept Bitcoin Starting November 26th, Ohio will be the first state to accept Bitcoin payments for 23 types of business taxes. They are the first in the United States and among the first governments in the world to accept cryptocurrency as a way of paying for taxes. But this deal wasn’t made alone. Ohio State is now accepting payment in cryptocurrency using BitPay. According to the Ohio Treasurer’s website, people would be able to pay their utility tax, sales tax and employee withholdings taxes in crypto - among with other 20 types. Cryptocurrencies cannot be transferred to third parties without user initiation, thereby practically eliminating fraud; Anyone can view all transactions on the blockchain network; Payments on the blockchain can be tracked on a second-by-second basis; a minimal fee is charged to confirm transactions on the blockchain network.” For the moment, there’s possible only with Bitcoin. But as the Ohio’s Treasurer’s Website stated the Treasurer’s office looks forward to adding more cryptocurrencies in the future.”. Ohio’s also exploring the blockchain technology, as they declared: “[we are] working to help make Ohio a national leader in blockchain technology.” This could be a great thing for governments worldwide. Ohio set up an example - example that might lead to a more secure, more transparent and more efficient way to pay the bills. And all of this would have a proof on the blockchain that its there to stay. TRON’s Technology Attracts More Developers Tron recently published their dApp weekly report and the numbers are better than in the past. More than 20 dApps are now available over the Tron’s Mainnet and the stats are increasing week by week - even if the market conditions are harsh. Compared with the last week’s transaction volume, the Tron network increased by 15%. We’ve heard a few weeks before how Tron’s account number surpassed the EOS and the number of transaction daily grow to an amazing 1.5 Million. This could also be due to the launch of the Tron’s DEX - that now have more than 100 million TRX transaction volume per day. Moreover, another interesting fact is the future Tron Accelerator - an online contest for developers that want to build dApps on the Tron blockchain protocol. There are 56 prizes with a total value of $1 million and the first place will go home with $200,000 and a free pass to niTROn Summit in San Francisco on January 17th. On the dApp report is was also mentioned how TRONdice will soon launch a new version. There would be a gaming/mining mode where dice token holders can share 70% of the profit TRONdice generates and vote on important issues on the platform. Tron also have a new partnership with Thunder Stone Games - that will award their players with TRX. Aphelion Pause Trading & Refunds Users Aphelion, the most known decentralized exchange on the NEO blockchain decided to disable mainnet trading. All the pairs from the platform were stopped on November 21, 2018. Users started to receive refunds of their cryptocurrencies on November 23d, 2018. The decentralized exchange earned only 700 APH ( ~$20 ) in fees and will not touch them until the DEX is reinstalled. The reason of the pause is pretty serious though. Ian Holtz, Aphelion CEO stated: “It’s been a perfect storm of bad news: new SEC rulings, disastrous market conditions, NEO tech challenges and diminishing cash flow. First, recent SEC action against EtherDelta sets a new precedent that directly impa

Bitcoin parece se recuperar após o massacre do fim de semana, Altcoins enfrentando resistências

Por: Livecoins Após um final de semana vermelho escuro no mercado de criptomoedas, tanto o bitcoin quanto as principais altcoins começaram a se recuperar nesta segunda de manhã. Nas últimas 24 horas o bitcoin subiu mais de 4% em relação ao final de semana que teve mínima de US $ 3.500. Do ponto de vista da análise técnica, o bitcoin e outras moedas importantes parecem ter encontrado algum suporte em torno dos níveis de setembro de 2017. A questão, no entanto, é se esse nível vai se manter, ou se o mercado vai cair mais. Após a grande queda do mercado de criptomoedas, a capitalização encolheu agora para cerca de US $ 130 bilhões, de um pico de US $ 822 bilhões em janeiro deste ano. Portanto, mais de 50 das maiores empresas de capital aberto do mundo agora têm valores de mercado maiores do que o mercado inteiro de criptomoedas. Isso inclui todas as famosas empresas de tecnologia - o chamado grupo de ações FAANG (Facebook, Amazon, Apple, Netflix e Google) -, mas também muitas empresas menores, como McDonald’s, Walt Disney e MasterCard . Bitcoin Cash com as maiores perdas Entre os maiores perdedores durante a recente onda de vendas de criptomoedas, o Bitcoin Cash (BCH) se destaca, conhecido como “fakebtc”, a moeda que ironicamente se intitula “verdadeiro bitcoin”, foi duramente atingida pela briga interna entre os desenvolvedores do Bitcoin ABC e Bitcoin SV. O Bitcoin ABC parece ter saído vitorioso, mesmo assim teve grandes perdas no preço, uma vez que caiu de mais de US $ 380 na semana passada para apenas US $ 167. A moeda também perdeu brevemente o seu quarto lugar para EOS, embora isso tenha sido revertido hoje de manhã. Contratos Futuros de Bitcoin Expiram na sexta-feira (30) Embora o mercado pareça ter encontrado pelo menos algum suporte, a volatilidade pode estar voltando ao bitcoin em breve. Na sexta-feira (30 de novembro), os contratos futuros do bitcoin na bolsa CME Group devem expirar - uma ocasião mensal que alguns sugerem ter causado quedas no bitcoin no passado. Bitcoin e Altcoins enfrentando resistências difíceis Depois de perder o suporte de US $ 4.000, o preço do bitcoin caiu para o suporte de US $ 3.600. O preço é atual é de US $3.740. Se os compradores precisarem ganhar impulso de alta, eles precisam empurrar o preço acima de US $ 4.200. Por outro lado, um rompimento abaixo de US $ 3.500 pode empurrar o preço para US $ 3.000. Ethereum O preço do Ethereum caiu drasticamente abaixo dos níveis de suporte de US $ 120, US $ 118 e US $ 110. Hoje o preço chegou a subir cerca de 2% e atualmente está sendo negociado acima de US $ 100. Os suportes anteriores de US $ 120 e US $ 125 estão atuando como grandes barreiras. Se a moeda subir acima US $ 125, o preço poderia ser alavancado para a próxima resistência semanal em US $ 150. Outras altcoins Muitas altcoins recuperaram mais de 15% hoje, incluindo SRN, ETP, VERI, MONA, POLI, RVN, FCT, XTZ, ARK, ARDR e NEXO. Destas, a SRN subiu cerca de 70% e a ETP ganhou cerca de 33%. A queda recente do bitcoin abaixo de US $ 4.000 foi assustadora para os investidores. O Bitcoin parece estar se recuperando, mas os traders precisam ganhar força acima das barreiras semanais de US $ 4.100, US $ 4.200 e US $ 4.400 para uma sólida recuperação nos próximos dias. Se os compradores falharem, poderá haver uma nova queda no bitcoin e nas altcoins.

Victim of the ‘Biggest Crypto Theft in History’ Coincheck Resumes XRP Trading

CoinSpeaker Victim of the ‘Biggest Crypto Theft in History’ Coincheck Resumes XRP Trading Ten months ago Japanese cryptocurrency exchange Coincheck, now a subsidiary of the Japanese financial services giant Monex Group, was widely discussed, nevertheless, given the reason for it, it is difficult to say that the team behind the platform was satisfied with such a popularity. Coincheck became a victim of hackers, as a result of their attack it lost funds worth over $530 million in NEM tokens. The attack was later considered to be the biggest crypto theft in the history and resulted into increased regulatory scrutiny of crypto exchanges in the country. Coincheck Now Nevertheless, step-by-step Coincheck has managed to come back. After the theft, the platform started to take recovery measures and to distribute reparations to clients who had lost their funds. In spring, the exchange accepted a takeover bid by Japanese online brokerage Monex Group Inc. and became its subsidiary. Coincheck was acquired for around $33.5 million. Just recently, it has been revealed that today, on November 26, Coincheck is resuming trading pairs for XRP and Factom (FCT) tokens. The fact that the platform is adding these two cryptocurrencies means that now it has completely renewed its depositing and purchasing offerings for all tradable cryptocurrencies since the moment of their cancellation in January after the theft. What Is Already Done Lately, Coincheck has been actively reviving its services. In late October, platform’s customers got an opportunity to register new accounts and deposit 4 cryptocurrencies. This list included Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum Classic (ETC), Litecoin (LTC) and Bitcoin Cash (BCH). Several weeks later, in the middle of November, Coincheck added 3 more options: Ethereum (ETH), NEM (XEM) and Lisk (LSK). As Coinspeaker has reported, the Coincheck’s announcement of adding NEM token to its platform led to NEM’s sudden surge: its price increased by 25 percent. Further Plans In the issued announcement, Coincheck warns its customers that due to increased traffic volumes, some temporary difficulties in accessing the platform or working on it may appear. That’s why the company reserves the right to suspend trading without any prior notice if it is required by the situation. Moreover, according to the platform, they may postpone the resumption of XRP and FCT trading in case something goes wrong. As it has been disclosed by the firm, now the team is exploring a possibility to resume its other services in the near future. Among these services it’s worth mentioning leveraged transactions for new positions, JPY depositing via convenience stores, JPY quick depositing, Coincheck Payment and Coincheck DENKI. Nevertheless, these services will be re-launched only when external experts confirm that the products and the systems of Coincheck are absolutely safe from the technical perspective. It will help to prevent any unexpected situations like the one that happened in January.

Fresh 36% Gains Push Factom Price Toward $12 and More

These past few weeks have been incredibly bullish for anyone who owns the Facto m token as part of their portfolio. Massive gains have been noted in quick succession, and it appears the momentum isn’t over just yet. These past 24 hours have helped push the FCT value to $11.8, and it seems more positive momentum may be on the horizon. Factom Price Surge Seems Unstoppable While most cryptocurrencies and assets have struggled for momentum throughout the final quarter of 2018, Factom has followed a completely opposite trend. The currency is still far removed from its all-time high of $65, but things have begun looking up in the past few weeks. That is rather interesting to keep an eye on right now, although one has to wonder how long this trend can be sustained first and foremost. New Over the past 24 hours, there has been another big Factom price increase. The USD value rose by 36%, whereas the FCT/BTC ratio improved by 28% in the same period. This further confirms the current momentum clearly favors Factom, even though the overall trading volume is anything but spectacular. There has been just $2.7m in 24-hour trading, which is not necessarily all that great for a market rising in value at an alarming pace. The big news warranting some FCT price excitement comes in the form of Coincheck. The major Japanese exchange has slowly begun resuming services for the supported currencies on its platform following a major hack earlier in 2018. The latest two currencies to be reinstated for purchases and payments are XRP and Factom. This development will expose a lot of potential investors to FCT in the coming weeks. 一部仮想通貨の入金・購入再開のお知らせ(XRP・FCT)https://t.co/xReNvVJemB — Coincheck(コインチェック) (@coincheckjp) November 26, 2018 Additionally, it seems there is some genuine excitement brewing regarding the partnership between Medicine Ventures and Factom. Considering how Overstock plans to focus on blockchain technology more and more, this partnership may be leveraged sooner than people initially anticipated. How that would be pursued exactly, remains somewhat unclear at this stage. $FCT #FCT ファクトム pic.twitter.com/T5uJ8wJTsC — susuvanK すすばんく_仮想通貨 (susu) (@iias2008) November 25, 2018 When looking at the Factom price from a technical analysis perspective, things are looking rather interesting. This most recent uptrend shows there is a genuine chance FCT will keep going until it hits 0.0057 Bitcoin. That is a major selling point for MarQQ, although FCT would need another 100% increase in BTC value prior to reaching such a value. That is not impossible, but it seems rather unlikely right now. Keeps running $FCT #factom boy. Selling target nr1 @ 0.0057 BCT pic.twitter.com/mb2L7SGSpp — MarQQ (@marQQmkl) November 26, 2018 Based on all of these circumstances, there is a good chance Factom will continue to buck the bearish trend looming over all other cryptocurrencies. Surpassing the $12 mark may not necessarily be that difficult, although there will be pressure sooner or later. The low trading volume is also a genuine cause for concern, although that does not necessarily have to be a bad thing whatsoever. Disclaimer: This is not trading or investment advice.
