This week is highly disscussed among crypto fans, no wonder, starting from the largest partnership in history to the monstrous loss of Japan and not just that.
Bitcoin is recommended for buying by Pantera Capital
That’s their fourth recommendation in 7 years, as they rarely recommend anything related to crypto
The CEO of investment fund Dan Morehead has said that the mark of $6,500 for Bitcoin is limit and hardly he will go below.
In the April letter to investors Dan Morehead noted high probability that the Bitcoin will grow and will even overcome a December maximum of $20,000. According to Morehead it can happen by the end of 2018.
Dan hasn't given any statement and yes, he makes some recommendations not to often, he has announced possibility of such events, take it into account. But something confuses in this news. Such famous analyst and fund with quite long story in the cryptocurrencies market (organized in 2013), couldn't save investors money from global correction and loss, moving down together with market falling.
According to Joey Krug (co-chief investment officer of Pantera Capital) letter to clients fund of digital assets has lost only 3.1% since 1 December 2017 in comparison with Bitcoin which for the same period has dropped by 37.4%. At the same time only in March, 2018 assets of Pantera were reduced by 45.7%. But the market has begun its slowly grow practically from the middle of March, nevertheless the fund continued to lose money since January, without taking any action, at least for fixing profit and or limit the losses.
Verge claimed they partnered with PornHub
In reality, they didn’t, the famous adult site now only accepts XVG as a form of payment. Somehow that has driven the price down a lot.
Representatives of XVG (Verge) announced ‘the largest partnership in cryptocurrencies history’ on March 27 from that date the price of a coin has begun to grow. From the moment of the announcement before direct disclosure of the partner altcoin has increased by more than 200 percent (from $0.03 to 0.11 for a coin). But after the announcement of partnership with PornHub price dropedl to $0.07 for a coin and trades on this mark for now.
Community accepted it differently, but it should be noted that it has serious value for a resource as Pornhub, because it gives high importance to the protection of clients confidentiality. But what is even more important, it is a big step for promoting the pluses of cryptocurrencies anonymity.
Such resources as Brazzerz, Reality Kings, You Porn, DP (Digital Playground) also begun to accept XVG (Verge). Developers started a contest for 300,000 XVG (Verge) and also as a prize — date with some of pornstars. I very doubt that there will be no participants.
IBM’s favorite crypto, Stellar Lumens, breaks above $0.31 as market confidence grows
Stellar recently got some interesting projects based on its platform, so this growth seems natural
XLM (Stellar) altcoin grew up in cost and reached capitalization in $6,3 million — the best indicators for the last six weeks. Experts consider the most probable cause of such rise is the future ICO connected with marijuana.
The Canadian producer of marijuana — Nezly, became the new partner of the platform. The company plans to use tokens as payment for its product and the other services and also they plan to create a blockchain ecosystem with mobile applications. ICO Nezly will start this Friday (20 April). It will be possible to get tokens in exchange for BTC (Bitcoin), ETH (Ethereum), XLM (Stellar) or US dollars. The company has set the top limit of sales in $36,5 million, the total amount of available tokens is 120 million.
Cardano grows when all market falls. Listing of ADA at Huobi and new trading pairs at Binance

News about adding of a new pairs on Binance has positively affected a price. So for the last week its average price has grown more than 30%
Besides pairs added earlier with Bitcoin and Ethereum, now there is also an opportunity to trade in ADA(Cardano) against Binance Coin (ADA/BNB) and Tether (ADA/USDT).
At the same time the movement of the price was pushed up by listing of ADA(Cardano) on the Huobi exchange which takes the second place in the world on cryptocurrencies exchanges.

Kraken is leaving Japanese сryptocurrencies market
One of the oldest cryptocurrency exchanges in the world — Kraken — will stop serving clients in Japan. The company has explained the end of the activity in the region with the e-mail for clients:
In March 2018 exchange has closed a number of bank accounts and also stopped accepting deposits in the US dollars, Euro and the British pounds through the SWIFT system.
