Sharp U.S. Futures Recovery Hints Bitcoin Will Retest $10K This Week

Spot bitcoin price was up 1 percent as the U.S. futures recovered sharply on Sunday evening. The S&P 500 mini had opened lower amid uncertainty about the effect of riots in major U.S. cities. Bitcoin laggingly tailed the futures to fall below $9,400 but rebounded as risk-sentiment restored. Its next price target is $10,000. Bitcoin and the S&P 500 mini fell and recovered in sync on Sunday evening – with a minor lag between their moves. The benchmark cryptocurrency slipped to $9,369 a token as of 1905 ET. The southward move came as a part of a broader correction from bitcoin’s weekend session top near $9,764. So it appears, day traders sold the local high to secure short-term profit, which caused the $300 blip. Just an hour before bitcoin fell below $9,400, futures linked to the S&P 500 opened lower by […]

Bitcoin Closes May Candle Above Crucial Resistance, and That’s Big for the Bull Case

Just over an hour ago as of this article’s writing, Bitcoin closed the price candle for the month of May. This was a very important technical event for the cryptocurrency, analysts have said. And fortunately for bulls, BTC closed above a crucial region of resistance that would have otherwise restricted the asset’s potential upside. Bitcoin Closes Above $9,360, a Key Level Prior to the monthly close, there were analysts pointing to the low-$9,000s as a crucial region to watch. One “full-time scalper” shared the analysis below hours out from the May close, drawing attention to $9,360 in particular. According to him, this level is important because BTC hasn’t closed above it in nearly 12 months, though has been rejected at the level on a number of occasions: “We’ve not had a Monthly close above 9360 in nearly 12 months. Rejections […]

UK Government Seizes $185 Million From Dormant Bank Accounts for Crisis Relief

The UK government is seizing funds in dormant bank accounts worth approximately $185 million to fund its coronavirus relief efforts. So far, 30 banks have been voluntarily transferring money from dormant accounts to the government, including HSBC, Barclays, Clydesdale, Credit Agricole, Danske, Santander, Lloyds, and Bank of Scotland. The government has also proposed adding other types of assets that can be seized, such as insurance policies and share proceeds. Government Unlocks Funds From Dormant Accounts The U.K. government announced last week that “£150 million [$185.74 million] from dormant bank and building society accounts is to be unlocked to help charities, social enterprises and vulnerable individuals during the coronavirus outbreak.” Culture Secretary Oliver Dowden detailed that “This includes accelerating the release of £71 million of new funds from dormant accounts alongside £79 million already unlocked that will be repurposed to help […]

Max Keiser: There Isn’t Anything Crypto Altcoins Do That Bitcoin Won’t Do

Ever since the peak of the 2018 crypto bull market, Bitcoin has been front and center for most investors. Bitcoin dominance — the percentage of the cryptocurrency market made up of BTC — has doubled from the 33% lows, while a number of altcoin projects have died out due to funding issues and a lack of public interest. Even still, there remain thousands of projects cumulatively worth dozens of millions promising to be the “next BTC” or something along those lines. But according to Max Keiser, the host of the “Keiser Report” on RT and one of the earliest Bitcoin bulls,” these projects have no intrinsic value. Bitcoin Is Still Stronger Than Altcoins Speaking in a recent interview with London Real, Keiser doubled down on his long-held sentiment that altcoins provided little (if any) value over Bitcoin. In response to […]

Crypto Lending Has Become a Popular Endeavor

The process of crypto lending has gotten to be quite big. In fact, since the process was first introduced, as much as $8 billion in crypto funds have been borrowed by customers. Crypto Lending Has Gotten Big Over the Years Crypto lending can be very tricky in that the currencies backing the loans are often vulnerable to volatility and price swings. That’s why companies like Celsius Network – which specialize in building crypto loans for users – never do anything unless the loan is based on a stable coin. Stable coins have come a long way in the digital finance space. While not as mainstream or as popular as bitcoin or Ethereum, they are powerful tools for institutional players and anyone else looking to avoid the hassle that comes with price swings. Stable coins are often backed by certain forms […]

Bitcoin Could Surge Past $10,000 as Ethereum “Hammers” Higher: Top Analyst

Bitcoin and the rest of the crypto market have performed extremely well over the past few days, bouncing 10% from last weekend’s correction lows. Though one cryptocurrency has been dramatically outperforming all the rest: Ethereum. The second-largest cryptocurrency and foremost altcoin was up 10% on Saturday, surging higher on the back of an influx of buying pressure. It was a move that allowed Ethereum to break past a crucial resistance. Although Bitcoin has yet to follow Ethereum higher, analysts say that ETH’s strength could drag the rest of the market higher. Ethereum’s Strength Could Boost Bitcoin One prominent trader asserted that ETH’s ability to continue to “hammer” past key resistances is adding fuel to the Bitcoin bull case: “ETH continues to hammer up, dragging BTC past a $10k breakout. That adds fuel to ETH until ETH has gone fully absurd. […]

NebliDEX Provides a DEX Capable of Competing With Centralized Platforms

Cryptocurrency exchanges are often centralized, ensuring that users are never in control of their own holdings. New solutions need to be found, and it appears that NebliDex has some ideas as to how the future of trading should look. Putting users in full control of their assets is a core aspect of cryptocurrency. For some reason, most traders are more than willing to let third-party companies take care of this aspect on their behalf. A big Step Forward for DEX Enthusiasts Given all of the shenanigans, outages, hacks, and thefts affecting centralized exchanges, it becomes apparent that something needs to change. Decentralized trading solutions, or DEXes, are often touted to be the next logical step in the evolution. So far, there has been some progress to ensure that a DEX would work as advertised. Newly launched project NebliDex is a […]

How to Find Work in the Remote Economy

Remote work in the COVID-19 economy has boomed in both popularity and necessity. But even before COVID-19 hit the world and sent millions to work from home, many people were still working remotely. A number of big reasons are driving remote work. The Great Recession forced many U.S. companies to close down office space and push employees to work from home. New developments in technology such as messaging apps like Slack, video conferencing platforms like Zoom, and project managing apps like Asana are all contributing to make remote work easier for employers and employees. Removing commute times and letting employees live where they want, including lower cost areas, make remote work more convenient and cheaper than a traditional office building. Remote workers love their jobs so much that nearly all of those who are currently working at a remote job […]

Vitalii Antonenko Charged for Crypto Crimes in the Big Apple

A man in New York City has been charged with laundering money through bitcoin. 28-year-old Vitalii Antonenko was arrested in March last year while arriving from the Ukraine to New York’s JFK airport after federal agents linked two bitcoin wallets to him that had been used to launder as much as $94 million in digital funds. Antonenko Will Face Criminal Charges Crypto crime is no laughing matter. There are many cases seeping their way into the digital finance industry, and the methods used for stealing, laundering, and hacking money are wide and varied. One common method involves attacking crypto exchanges directly, particularly those that utilize hot wallet storage, which is far less safe than cold storage. Two of the biggest examples that come to mind are Mt. Gox and Coincheck. Both exchanges are based in Japan. Mt. Gox was hacked […]

Why Surging Options Volume Can Put an End to Ethereum’s Epic Rally

Ethereum posted an intense breakout rally yesterday that allowed it to set fresh local highs This rally came about rather suddenly, with it coming about prior to any movement seen by Bitcoin or the aggregated crypto market Analysts are now noting that this uptrend may start to falter in the days ahead, as it is currently repeating a pattern that is strikingly similar to that seen in months past This potential weakness comes as Ethereum’s options see rocketing volume, signaling that ETH is likely to see heightened volatility Ethereum’s recent uptrend allowed it to post massive gains, climbing from the lower-$200 region to highs of $250. The cryptocurrency’s momentum has stalled a bit as of late, which could be a sign that buyers overextended themselves throughout the course of this latest movement. It now appears that this upswing came about […]

With Riots Erupting in US Cities, Using Tools of Peaceful Protest Can be More Meaningful

During the last six days, America has been feeling the wrath of a myriad of protests and riots in nearly every major city across the nation. The U.S. is experiencing an uprising like never before, but some of the protests and demonstrations could be more peaceful. Acts like not voting for the political class, and using alternative monies like bitcoin can go a long way when it comes to civil protest. America Is on Fire, Governors Invoke Curfews, National Guard Deploys, and Martial Law Starts Trending on Twitter The protests have become unruly and that is because law enforcement has attacked crowds of innocent peaceful protesters, there are hired groups of inciters there to start violence, state provocateurs have been caught on camera inciting violence, and people are fed up with the decades of police brutality. However, there are other […]

Ted Nelson: Only I Know Who Satoshi Nakamoto Is

The identity of Satoshi Nakamoto still has many bitcoin and crypto fans everywhere scratching their heads. Who is this man, and why has he never come out to garner the respect and praise he deserves for creating one of the world’s most revolutionary financial tools? Satoshi Nakamoto: The Mystery Continues Technology expert and philosopher Ted Nelson has now emerged to say that he knows darn well who Nakamoto is, and it’s someone nobody’s ever thought of. He’s pointing the finger at Shinichi Mochizuki, a Princeton graduate and mathematician. Mochizuki was the salutatorian of his class, meaning only one other person earned higher grades. Nelson has been claiming Mochizuki is the real Satoshi Nakamoto since 2013, but in a recent interview, it becomes clear that his thoughts haven’t changed. He explained: Does he speak good English?

These Three Factors Show Bitcoin Will See a Massive Selloff at $10,000

Bitcoin has seen some incredibly mixed price action as of late, with BTC struggling to garner any notable momentum as it approaches its heavy resistance $10,000 This resistance has proven to be insurmountable on multiple occasions throughout the past several weeks and months One analyst is now noting that BTC’s ongoing rally up towards the five-figure price region is strikingly similar to that seen in months past Three factors signal that this rally could be fleeting in the days and weeks ahead Bitcoin and the aggregated crypto market have entered a firm consolidation phase over the past few days as it struggles to garner any notable upwards momentum. It has been able to stabilize within the mid-$9,000 region, but the resistance laced between $9,700 and $10,000 has proven to be insurmountable. One analyst is pointing to three primary factors as […]

Censored Youtubers Are Migrating to Lbry.tv Censorship is abundant these days, as many of the massive social media platforms and video sharing sites are censored and policed on a regular basis.

Long-Term Signal for Ethereum Flips Bullish: Here’s Why It May Not Pan Out

Although Ethereum is still over 80% below its all-time high price, the asset has registered extremely positive price action over recent months. From the March capitulation lows of $88, the asset is up over 175%. And in the past day alone, ETH is up 10%, outperforming basically all other cryptocurrencies in circulation. The recent uptrend has allowed Ethereum to print an extremely positive sign, according to a prominent crypto trader. He noted in the chart below that on Kraken, the Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) on the one-month Ethereum chart has crossed bullish for the first time ever: “Monthly MACD finally crossed bullishly… and moving up across the zero line,” the analyst wrote in reference to the chart below.

Long-Term Bitcoin Outlook Is “Super-Bullish,” Says Analyst Who Called 2019 Bottom

Bitcoin remains far below the $20,000 all-time high it established at the end of 2017’s crypto mania. But this hasn’t stopped investors from being extremely optimistic about the cryptocurrency. One prominent analyst recently said that the asset is looking “super bullish” from a long-term perspective. His comments are especially notable as he is an analyst that has nailed the directionality of this market over the past year. In the middle of 2019, when BTC was surging past key resistances above $10,000, he called for a retracement to $6,400. He predicted that move correctly, nailing the bottom of the trend down to dollars. Earlier this year, the analyst suggested that the asset would rally to $11,000 before reversing towards the $8,000s and maybe even lower. This, too, was correct. Long-Term Outlook for Bitcoin Is “Super Bullish” The analyst in question is […]

Bitcoin Monthly Close is 1 Day Away: Here’s the Level That May Trigger a Big Rally

In just a day, Bitcoin will close the May’s price candle. Analysts say that this close will be crucial for indicating in which direction the cryptocurrency market heads next. Analyst Eric “Parabolic” Thies, for instance, recently identified a level that bulls should close above to confirm that more upside is in the works. The Key Level to Watch for Bitcoin Heading Into May’s Close According to Thies, the cryptocurrency closing above the downtrend formed after the $20,000 high will be “incredibly significant for bulls.” The downtrend is currently at $9,300, which BTC trades above as of the time of this article’s writing. BTC chart from Eric “Parabolic” Thies, a crypto analyst and programmer. Although Thies believes the low-$9,000s is the region to watch, there is a key band of resistance around $10,000 too.

Bitcoin IRA Halving Report Suggests $280,000 Price for BTC

It’s funny how more than two weeks have passed since bitcoin’s famed third halving, and yet people are still talking about it as though it were fresh news. Bitcoin IRA – despite the big gap between now and the occurrence – has unveiled a new report that discusses the company’s alleged findings pertaining to the halving and what traders can expect in the coming future. Bitcoin IRA Reveals Some New Data A halving occurs for bitcoin every four years. The previous two occurred in 2012 and 2016, respectively. The first event resulted in bitcoin mining rewards being cut from 50 BTC to about 25, which at first seems like a lot of money to garner for extracting new bitcoin blocks. However, as we all know, bitcoin wasn’t trading then at a price that was anywhere near where it is today, […]

CME’s Open Interest Suggests a Bitcoin Price Jump is Imminent

Looking at the current Bitcoin price momentum, some cautious optimism appears to be warranted.

Many people would like to see the value of Bitcoin hit five digits once again. Are Things Looking up for Bitcoin? When that happens, the world’s leading cryptocurrency may slowly begin moving to a new all-time high. If and when such a scenario will unfold exactly, remains to be determined. One factor that might give speculators some hope is the current open interest on CME’s Bitcoin options. That figure has reached an all-time high of $259 million, or an increase by nearly 1,900% since May 1st. This seems to confirm that institutional investors seeking exposure to Bitcoin are making a lot of money as of right […]

The nation is widely blamed for the release of the coronavirus on the world, and Trump is potentially looking to initiate economic strikes against China in the form of further sanctions and tariffs. The President has already sought compensation from the country.

Altcoins Could Face Capitulatory Decline as Crypto Market Hits Key Resistance

The aggregated cryptocurrency market has been struggling to spark a macro uptrend due to Bitcoin’s inability to break above $10,000 This has led it to form some heavy resistance just above its current market cap – with this level potentially being insurmountable in the near-term Analysts are also pointing to altcoins severe underperformance of Bitcoin in recent times, which could suggest that this potentially imminent market-wide decline will be brutal for smaller cryptocurrencies Bitcoin and the aggregated crypto market have seen their macro momentum stall throughout the past several weeks. This is primarily the result of BTC not being able to break above $10,000. This recent price action has led most major altcoins to woefully underperform the benchmark cryptocurrency, leading some analysts to note that it would require a massive shift amongst market participants in order for this trend to […]

American Panic Led to the Creation and Expansion of the Corrupt Federal Reserve System

The Federal Reserve System was created after the “Panic of 1907” and ever since its inception in 1913, the Fed is one of the most powerful modern central banks in the world. Moreover, the Fed has always been either celebrated or criticized for stepping in whenever the U.S. is stricken with some kind of fear. During the coronavirus outbreak, the central bank has unleashed a massive number of monetary easing tactics, which has prompted editors from Wikipedia to add updated information to the Fed’s Wiki page. The central bank’s page now states: “[the] COVID-19 pandemic in 2020 [has] led to the expansion of the roles and responsibilities of the Federal Reserve System.” Panic at the Knickerbocker Trust – 1907 During the last few months, Americans have witnessed the power of the Federal Reserve’s shenanigans as the central bank has created […]

BTC has been struggling to garner enough momentum to break $10,000, leading most altcoins to also fall into firm trading ranges.

Where Has All The Money Gone? Looking Into Crypto Projects Who Pay Token Holders

As the number of cryptocurrency projects continues to grow, it’s becoming harder for teams to rise above the rest and incentivize investors and users to flock to their platform.  There are several strategies teams have adopted to cultivate activity. One is airdrops, where projects simply give away tokens for free. While some might ask users to perform a specific action, like joining a Telegram community, others don’t require users to do anything other than hold a particular amount of Bitcoin or Ether. And there are a lot of other activities are happening regularly. For example, Alistair Milne is willing to give away 1 BTC for solving a Twitter puzzle. Some projects also choose to pay token holders a percentage of their revenue or turnaround to attract attention and reward those who have staked cash to a platform or idea. Staking […]
