Bitcoin Loses Key Support At $9,000 Following a Volatile Week: Weekly Crypto Market Update

We saw a busy week with events and attempts to influence the price. Bitcoin lost a key support level of $9,000 in a sudden move downwards which took its price to where it currently trades at around $8,700. However, the volatility continues and traders who’ve taken up leveraged positions might be in trouble as it’s quite difficult to keep up with the market. The month begins with a little enthusiasm and a quick correction which reminds us that the end of the year is approaching and there’s not a lot of time for the cryptocurrency market to move. Those who plan their taxes will have to close their positions. However, we saw an upward trend throughout most of the year and we don’t expect to see a realization of losses right before the end of the taxation period. On the other hand, Bakkt’s volume continues to increase steadily. This could suggest that institutions are waiting for a lower price to make their entry. Yet, it’s clear that Bakkt’s impact on the market wasn’t what many expected. Instead, it was news from China which brought the market up. Altcoins continue to hold on and some have even increased against Bitcoin and the US Dollar significantly. Of course, we haven’t seen inflows as serious as those back in 2016 and 2017. The trend is rather mixed up and this week we saw Tezos and VeChain making their holders happy with increases of around 30%. The money appears to be moving between the different cryptocurrencies after quick corrections and breakout attempts. We have yet to see if there is another chance for an altcoin season or if 2019 will go down in history as an unfruitful year for altcoins. It’s also interesting to see what will happen to Bitcoin’s dominance and which altcoins will be leading the list.

Ripple CEO: In A Crypto Market Flooded With Too Many Coins, XRP Offers Less Volatility And Better Utility

Ripple has always made great efforts to prop up XRP, and those efforts have often paid off as various financial institutions get interested in the company’s payment solutions – one of which is xRapid that utilizes XRP. In a recent interview with Bloomberg, Ripple’s CEO, Brad Garlinghouse, didn’t mince his words in saying that there’s currently a huge number of cryptocurrencies that offer nothing, although he went ahead to admit that the bullish cycle is incoming and will affect the entire market.  Utility And Volatility However, Brad had a few notes to make, two of them being about the utility and volatility of cryptocurrencies and other global payment models like SWIFT. He opined that out of the over 3,000 cryptos currently in the market, only about 1% of them offer actual utility. XRP is one of those few that are trying to solve existing problems. The other 99% is likely to drop to zero at some point.  Speaking about volatility, Brad compared Ripple’s fast payment solutions to those of SWIFT. Until the blockchain technology came about and companies like Ripple entered the market, SWIFT was the best bet for cross-border transactions. Not anymore. Now, Ripple’s payment solutions can settle payments within seconds, and that’s very much unlike SWIFT whose transactions sometimes take days to settle. In that sense, Ripple’s xRapid that utilizes XRP ensures that transactions are settled instantly with zero volatility.  SWIFT Is Ready For Battle  On its part, SWIFT has announced that it’s not scared of the new blockchain technology that is now threatening its very existence. Over the last two years, the company has been developing and testing a new payment system, dubbed the Global Payment Innovation (GPI) that is faster and more efficient than the previous versions. The company hopes that GPI will help battle the growing competition.  Walmart Teams Up With Ripple Partners  In an effort to expand its client base and boost XRP adoption, Ripple has been on a charm offensive, signing up customers onto its RippleNet, partnering with big corporations, and investing in various blockchain-based startups. Just recently, Walmart partnered with Ria Transfer Money and MoneyGram to expose its customers to more payment options. Interestingly, the two companies are partners with Ripple. In fact, MoneyGram is already using xRapid. These strategic developments are likely to impact XRP in the long-term as usage increases.

NEO, VeChain Shoots Up As China Warms Up To Blockchain

Cryptos with links to China are seeing huge leaps as the rest of the market remains relatively quiet, thanks to some recent events that suggest that the Chinese government might be finally ready to open the doors for cryptos. It’s notable that some time back, China banned all crypto-related activities in the country, prompting various exchanges in the country like Binance to leave. A recent announcement by the Chinese president seems to have fueled a rather serious price surge for cryptos like VeChain and NEO. Granted, the two cryptos have been known to have strong links to China. China’s President publicly endorsed Blockchain development in the country, at the 18th collective study of the Political Bureau of the Central Committee held in China, President Xi Jinping delivered a speech to the members of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee where he broadly stressed the importance of Blockchain as an independent innovation for technological breakthrough that must be developed in order to speed up its technological use case in the country. China Will Invest In Blockchain In a new report, it’s revealed that China is planning to invest around $2 billion in blockchain projects within the country over the next few years. This announcement caused a ripple effect, with almost the entire crypto market feeling the push. NEO gained by over 50% while VeChain has seen a cool 100% upsurge since Xi spoke. While the rest of the market also reacted positively to the news, the surge wasn’t as intense as that seen with NEO and VeChain. On average, the rest of the market managed to only gain around 17% following Xi’s pro-blockchain announcement. However, it’s still agreeable that the announcement has been very well received in the industry. In fact, following the news, Binance has expressed interest in opening up a branch in the Chinese capital, Beijing.  Chinese Media Publishing Crypto And Blockchain Content  Besides the Chinese government supporting the blockchain technology, the media, too, seems to have developed some love for cryptos. A state-owned media outlet has been publishing crypto and blockchain-related content in an effort to educate members of the public about them. In fact, one of the publications was entirely dedicated to Bitcoin and occupied the outlet’s front page.  The post NEO, VeChain Shoots Up As China Warms Up To Blockchain appeared first on ZyCrypto.
