Bitcoin SV [BSV] Price Analysis: Token looks to break resistance as bulls push for consistency

Bitcoin SV [BSV] closed last week out of the top 10, being ousted by long-term rival Binance Coin [BNB] as the market rose by $9 billion to send major coins into a frenzy. The now eleventh-largest cryptocurrency is still reducing while competing coins like BNB and Cardano [ADA] are on the rise. The coin has declined by 1.23 percent against the US dollar and is now selling for $65.75, while the coin’s market cap stands at $1.15 billion, $169 million ahead of Cardano. In terms of exchange dominance, BW took the top spot with $24.08 million or 28.45 percent of BSV trading volume in the BSV/USDT trading pair. Following up is IDCM and Bit-Z with 6.19 percent and 6.1 percent via the trading pairs BCHSV/USDT and BCHSV/BTC. 1-hour: Source: TradingView Bitcoin SV was pushed significantly high during a brief boom last week, but has managed to sustain it and push the prices up this week too. The uptrend stretched from $59.01 to $69.53 and was then pegged down from $69.32 to $63.04. The coin’s immediate support level stands at $64.5, which the coin touched mid-week and is now trading below, while the coin’s immediate resistance stands at $67.57. The aforementioned levels are quite close indicating stable movement for the coin at $58.14. The Parabolic SAR points to a bullish swing for the coin as the dotted lines are aligned below the coin’s trend line. The MACD line shows that the coin broke into a bearish zone on 8 February. However, recent movement has been bullish. The Relative Strength Index shows that after the bullish high raised the RSI to 69.42, it has been on a slight decline. At press time RSI was at 56.71. 1-day: Source: TradingView The coin has been riding a downtrend since mid-December, with no recovery in sight. The downtrend, as it stands, extends from $115.63 to $68.35. Prior to this downtrend, the coin enjoyed two short uptrends, the first from $58.35 to $108.36 and the next from $74.26 to $114.27. Bitcoin SV finds immediate support at $61.98, which the coin has breached since last week’s mild decline. The immediate resistance level of the coin stands at $67.70, which the coin fell below at the end of January. The Bollinger Bands point to steady volatility since the beginning of January, as the prices have looked downwards, while the Moving Average line indicates that the coin is trading in a bearish zone, but is likely to make the switch to the bulls. The Awesome Oscillator still pegs the eleventh-largest cryptocurrency trading below 0. However, the lines are green, indicating that bullish momentum is to take over soon. The Fisher Transform line show that the coin has made a switch from the bears to the bulls as the Fisher Line has overtaken the Trigger Line on February 5. Conclusion: The coin has been buoyed by the bullish swing of last week and has managed to sustain the high prices, rising above the immediate support level and close to breaking resistance. The short-term Bitcoin SV trend line indicates stable movement at a higher price-bracket, which shows hopeful signs. In the long-term, the coin looks to edge upwards following constant movement, as major indicators show bullish movement.

Monero [XMR] price crashes by over 10%; reaches its all-time low for the year

Last week, the entire cryptocurrency market saw a massive bloodbath with all major cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin [BTC], Ethereum [ETH] and Litecoin [LTC]  plunging by more than 10% within a few hours. Nonetheless, the bear continues to show no mercy on the market as it faces yet another bloodbath. Monero [XMR], the tenth-biggest cryptocurrency in the market, is one among the cryptocurrencies that were crushed by the bear. The most popular privacy coin has plummeted by 23.97% in the past seven days. According to CoinMarketCap, at press time, the coin was trading at $79.93, with a market cap of $1.32 billion. It has a trading volume of more than $21 million and has fallen by 10.16%. Monero [XMR] price chart | Source: CoinMarketCapMost of the trade volume for the cryptocurrencies was recorded on Bithumb, one of the leading cryptocurrency exchange in Korea, with XMR/ KRW trading pairs. It is followed by Binance, the biggest cryptocurrency exchange in terms of trade volume, with XMR/ BTC trading pairs. The other exchanges included Bitfinex, IDCM, and Poloniex. Additionally, the coin is currently trading at its lowest point in the entire year. The previous low recorded was at $81.27, which was set in the month of August 2018. The cryptocurrency’s highest trading point is set at $480.94, which was in the month of January 2018. Since then, the privacy coin has lost almost $400 of its value in the past eleven months. Recently, Monero [XMR] was listed with a new pair on Poloniex, one of the leading cryptocurrency exchange platform around the world. The token was paired with USDC coin, a stable coin by Circle. Moreover, the privacy coin gained the attention of Nouriel Roubini, the analyst who predicted the 2008 economic crisis. The economist stated that the Federal Bureau of Investigation will soon crack down the tenth biggest cryptocurrency. He had said: “So much for privacy, anonymity & censorship resistance: there is NO anonymity in crypto. Law enforcement authorities prefer transactions on crypto because it is easier to trace transactions & who is behind them than in banks. Wake up crypto zealots. & Feds will crack Monero too” The post Monero [XMR] price crashes by over 10%; reaches its all-time low for the year appeared first on AMBCrypto.

Exchanges Roundup: Ironx Raises $22.3M in Private Sale, IDCM to Target STOs

In this edition of Exchanges Roundup, we focus on Ironx, which has just wrapped up a $22.3 million private sale. We also look at International Digital Currency Markets’ plans to provide solutions for security token offerings, as well as some of the new exchanges opening in Estonia. Also Read: The Daily: Outcry Over Censoring of Gab, Chinese State Media Plugs Bitcoin Book UK Minister Reaps Windfall After Ironx Resignation Ironx, a cryptocurrency exchange that Cyprus-based Ironfx plans to launch in December, sold 67.6 million IRX tokens after raising $22.3 million during its recent private sale. The tokens were sold for just shy of $0.33 each. Stephen Hammond, a former vice chairman of the U.K. Conservative Party and current member of the U.K. Treasury Committee, recently resigned from Ironx after working for the company for just four days. Based on the pricing for the planned exchange’s private sale, the 50,000 IRX tokens that Hammond received as remuneration would be valued at approximately $16,500. Ironfx will open the Ironx exchange in partnership with Emurgohk Group, the Hong Kong-based company behind Cardano. ADA will be the base currency on Ironx. IDCM Reveals Plan to Become ‘Cryptocurrency Investment Bank’ Andrew Wong, a managing partner at International Digital Currency Markets, recently spoke to the South China Morning Post about the company’s long-term plans, which include becoming a full-fledged crypto investment bank. “Part of that process would be to provide a solution for a security token offering, where a pool of investors is screened and cleared to invest,” Wong said. Estonian Licenses Attract Exchanges Estonia’s licenses for exchange and wallet service providers are continuing to attract virtual currency companies, with cryptocurrency exchange XRP United launching operations in the country last week. The exchange uses XRP as its base currency and presently supports BCH/XRP, ETH/XRP, and BTC/XRP. It also intends to support XMR/XRP once a Monero wallet has been implemented on its platform. Crowdwiz is another company that has recently secured a license to provide wallet and exchange services in Estonia. It currently aims to launch a beta product for its Wizexchange before 2019.

XRP, BAT and Dash are The Favorite Cryptos Among Uphold Users

A recent report published by Uphold revealed that the most popular tokens among its users are XRP, BAT, and DASH. The investment in these cryptocurrencies has increased considerably during the period from January 2018 to January 2019. According to information from AMB Crypto, Uphold reported that despite the sharp drop in the prices of cryptocurrencies, its user base reached record stats: Not only did they increase their userbase to more than 1 million registered users, but the number of funded wallets and transactions also grew by more than 2X compared to last year. The Uphold team revealed that altcoins played a special role in the growth of its platform. Dash had the highest increase, followed by Basic Attention Token and Ethereum. However other tokens such as BTC, LTC, and BTG also reported significant growth despite the negative performance of the markets: Holdings of all currencies increased materially over the period, but DASH and BAT were the 2018 standouts (up 281% and 183% respectively). Uphold also saw good growth in holdings of ETH (up 70%), BTG (up 54%), BTC (up 41%) and LTC (up 24%) Uphold Explains The Reasons Behind The Popularity of Every Token According to the firm’s analysis. The growth rate of BTC, LTC, and ETH was lower than last year. Apparently, the public lost interest in these cryptocurrencies to focus on other more attractive alts such as XRP, which grew from 0 to 39% from March 2018 to January 2019. Uphold Interface The growing interest in XRP is consistent with the intense media presence that Ripple has had in the community over the past few months. The launch of xRapid and the numerous partnerships with essential players in the world of finance increased the trading of this cryptocurrency which eventually reached number 2 in the global market cap. Something similar happened with Basic Attention Token. The cryptocurrency is strongly pushed by Brave browser. The popularity of the browser and the positive rating of several specialized sites, as well as the launch of BAT trading in Coinbase Pro, were critical for the token to become one of the favorites among Uphold users. Uphold finally attributed DASH’s growth to a successful campaign in which they made their philosophy have an important influence on the community. “DASH represents itself as digital money which can be used to make instant, private payments online or in-store using its secure, open-source platform hosted by thousands of users around the world.” The post XRP, BAT and Dash are The Favorite Cryptos Among Uphold Users appeared first on Ethereum World News.

New Shapeshift Crypto Exchange Rebrand Plans Announced by CEO Erik Voorhees at ETHDenver

At the recently held ETHDenver, ShapeShift CEO Erik Vorhees announced that his company would be undergoing a major rebranding exercise in 2019. The first step in this will take place on Monday, February 17, 2019. During this time, the exchange will begin holding a closed beta programme where selected users will be invited to test out a new and improved version of Shapeshift. The new version, Vorhees says, will focus on improving on the user experience. These improvements will include making the user interface simpler and synchronizing the use of all the exchange’s products including its cryptocurrency pricing tracker CoinCap. This Information was made available by the CMO of ShapeShift Emily Coleman. Besides making this announcement, Vorhees also spoke at a panel focused on leadership “in times of ambiguity.” In this panel, he was joined by founder of cryptocurrency micropayments service Earn.com Lily Liu, CSO of ethereum venture capital studio ConsenSys Sam Cassatt, and co-founder of decentralized application platform Holochain Arthur Brock. Tough Calls As part of the discussion, the panelists were asked what the hardest decision was that they have had to make in the running of the business. “If you’re going to be a company in the crypto industry, you’re attached to the severe market cycles of the industry. That’s full of good and bad,” said Voorhees. Vorhees, on his part, said that the hardest decision he had had to make was the introduction of know-your-customer protocols on the exchange last year. “I felt like I had to do something morally wrong to allow the company to persist…It’s a really awful position to be in,” said Voorhees. According to Vorhees, the decision was a hard one because he was personally against the idea of asking users to give up their personal information. He eventually conceded to the decision as a form of picking and choosing his battles and considering the long-term implications. Despite the tough decision that was made, Vorhees is still confident that, in the future, people will be able to carry out transactions in a completely decentralized manner and without any censorship or interference. “Society is comfortable about this idea that people should be able to talk freely with each other … the fact that money is treated differently is a huge injustice. I hope that crypto breaks that discrepancy,” he said. Despite the CEO’s optimism, the company has faced some challenges in recent times, especially with having to lay off a third of its staff due to the crypto price slump.

Federal Judge in Crypto Proceeding Re-examines Blockvest (BLV Token) Case

In November of 2018, a California federal judge refused to approve a preliminary injunction as was requested at the time because there were a few inquiries and it was yet to be determined if, based on the Howey Test, the token in the case was a security. However, the same judge seemed to have re-assessed the situation and has made the decision to grant a motion the SEC’s requested, for Partial Reconsideration. Details of the Case The SEC, at the time, had charged a few offenders on account of transacting business involving sales of securities that were unapproved and not registered. The tokens, called BLV tokens, were defended by their stakeholders with the claim that they had been pre-approved by the CFTC, the National Futures Association and even the SEC. The accused also claimed on their website, that they had received approval from an agency called the “BEC”, although that seemed to have been fabricated. The Re-Assessment Generally, it almost never happens that during a prosecution, a federal judge will have a change of mind. This only happens when a motion for re-examination has been put forward. However, when a case has new evidence or laws have been changed or wrongly applied, a judge could consider a change of mind. The judge has now decided that the information on the accused’s website contained offers for transacting in unapproved tokens and this still holds water whether or not a transaction was completed. The Howey test is a divided into three parts and all three were violated. The accused expressed their opinion that an injunction is too much of a response from the courts especially because some progress had been made regarding admittance of guilt, an addition of a proper counsel to the team and the decision for these people not to do an ICO. However, the court did not agree especially because of the made up agency – BEC – and many other different falsities. The court also considered the possibility that the accused might not discontinue all the wrongdoings. Reactions to the case and the court rulings have been polar with some proclaiming it as appropriate while other have expressed that it might be an overreaction.
