A New Google Advertisement References Tired Old Stereotypes to Poke Fun at Bitcoin

A new advertisement about Google’s Call Screen services pokes fun at cryptocurrency mining costs by pointing out the gargantuan electricity costs connected with crypto mining. In the commercial, the actors converse about cryptocurrencies not being “real” currency and one actor goes as far as describing cryptocurrencies as a “lie”. These accusations are recurring themes that are not always cast in jest. JPMorgan CEO, Jamie Dimon, and Warren Buffet regularly lambasted Bitcoin and associated cryptocurrencies as baseless trends that will lead investors to bankruptcy. In spite of the light-hearted criticism, Google appears to be warming up to cryptocurrencies as their crypto-ad ban was lifted in September. (RS)

Bitcoin Price Update: Pop, Wait, Then Consolidate

Up till this morning BTC continued to experience rejection at $7,300 and after a 2.5 week 27% gain a small pullback was expected. The pattern of higher lows has been consistently re-established after each strong rejection from $7,300 and BTC remains well situated from a technical standpoint. $7,270 to $7,250 have functioned as reliable supports but a move below these would place BTC outside of the ascending channel resistance. All the shorter term moving averages (MA) are above the longer MAs and on August 26th the MACD on the weekly chart crossed bullish. In the short-term BTC needs to overtake and hold $7,300 in order to maintain strong bullish momentum. (RS)
