The price impact of regulatory news on Bitcoin

This is quite a promising direction, which, on the one hand, will protect human rights in terms of property, and on the other — significantly reduce the costs and time of transactions, as well as accelerate the turnover of money in the country.

Ripple Price Analysis This past week, there was a decent rebound in bitcoin, Ethereum, bitcoin cash, ADA and ripple against the US Dollar. The XRP/USD pair made a couple of attempts to clear the key $0.3250 and $0.3280 resistance levels. However, there was no convincing break above the $0.3300 resistance area.

More importantly, there was a break below a significant contracting triangle with support at $0.3180 on the 4-hours chart of the XRP/USD pair.

The price declined again and it seems like sellers might push the price below the $0.3083 low. The recent bearish break could be significant and it is likely to spark heavy downsides below $0.3080 in the coming sessions.

Ripple or XRP – If There Is a Difference, It Doesn’t Matter!

A group of us received an e-mail first thing this Sunday morning. A Ripple/XRP aficionado wanted to let us know we’re “very unprofessional” for interchangeably using the terms “Ripple” and “XRP.” The “XRP Army,” as it were, likely has its sights on CCN. We have no editorial policy regarding these terms in place. A writer is free to use whichever term makes their meaning clearer. Ripple fanatics believe that calling XRP “Ripple” is simply wrong. They want to be “crystal clear” – on what? Does anyone give a damn besides them?

Bitcoin [BTC] and Bitcoin Cash [BCH] no longer payment options on streaming site Twitch

Twitch, the popular live streaming video platform, quietly removed the option to pay using Bitcoin [BTC] and Bitcoin Cash [BCH] from its platform. This piece of negative adoption flies in the face of a wave of crypto-adoption in several industries. Initially spotted by a member of Bitcoin’s Reddit community, the concerned user pointed out that subscriptions could not be paid for via virtual currencies. StreamLabs, a broadcasting software for live stream management, also removed the option to pay with virtual currencies. According to the Reddit post, the video streaming service was facilitating crypto payments through the Bitcoin payment service, BitPay. The post added, “They removed it in the last couple of weeks as a payment method for all countries. Negative adoption strikes again unfortunately.” Given below is an Imgur post detailing a user’s subscription cancellation, after he paid for it using Bitcoin Cash, Source: Imgur The development was met by a wave of disapproval against Twitch, with some calling for a boycott of the streaming service. While many have speculated about the reasons behind this development, the most realistic seemed to be a lack of awareness about the cryptocurrency payment option and its low transaction volume. Some users called this lack of awareness a “vicious cycle,” where companies introduce a cryptocurrency payment option quietly, without notifying the community. As transaction volume drops, the same option is then quietly removed. In May 2018, Twitch began accepting payments in cryptocurrencies. Initially, a slew of coins such as Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum [ETH] and Litecoin [LTC] were accepted. The larger implications of this delisting must be noted. Twitch is a subsidiary of the e-commerce behemoth, Amazon, following the latter’s acquisition of the former in 2014 for around $950 million. As of February 2018, the video streaming service had 2.2 million broadcasters with 15 million unique viewers a day, and 140 million a month. Other notable websites that removed or suspended the cryptocurrency payment option from their respective platforms recently include, Expedia, the travel booking site and Chess.com, the online chess-portal. Bitcoin’s Reddit community was enraged by Twitch’s quiet listing and delisting of the crypto-payment option. SQLoverride stated, “With so many social platforms shadow banning and demonetizing, the conspiracy side of me thinks maybe it was done because it is more difficult to demonetize someone using crypto.” Many questioned the existence of the crypto-option itself, with anonymustanonymust asking, “Did the have Bitcoin Cash or Bitcoin (Core) on the website?” The boycott was advocated by TAPEWlRM, “Unsubbed and shut down Twitch stream. Bad call guys.” The post Bitcoin [BTC] and Bitcoin Cash [BCH] no longer payment options on streaming site Twitch appeared first on AMBCrypto.
