  • Bitcoin (BTC) Technical Signal That Has Predicted Historical “Moons” Is Flashing
    Bitcoin Looking Bullish Bitcoin may have dropped by 2% in the past 24 hours, but analysts have kept their heads up high. According to analyst Nunya Bizniz, a technical indicator used by prominent institutional trader-turned-Bitcoin diehard that has predicted previous long-term rallies has shown its face once again. Nunya claims that a specific reading of the indicator, Tom Demark’s Sequential on the monthly chart, which has a fairly notable 71% hit rate, indicates that a “moon” rally for BTC may be inbound.

  • JPM Is Going All-In On Blockchain
    It has been nearly 18 months since JP Morgan CEO Jamie Dimon denounced bitcoin as a "scam" (while failing to disclose that JPM Securities was one of the largest buyers of a bitcoin-linked ETP traded in Scandinavia), and in that time JPM has surpassed Goldman Sachs, Citigroup and all other American investment banks to become the market leader in blockchain adoption. Earlier this year, JPM introduced 'JPM Coin' a stable coin that the bank intends to use to facilitate the settlement of trades and transactions for its large corporate clients. Now, the bank is taking a leading role in building out the Interbank Information Network, a heretofore little-known blockchain project that some 75 banks joined last year. From what we can tell, the project aims to be like a blockchain-based, decentralized alternative to SWIFT (which could rankle some at the ...

  • Bullish Bitcoin Altcoin Carnage Continues, Analyst Says Capitulation Just Beginning
    Bitcoin’s early April 2019 rally through resistance at $4,200 halted the ongoing altcoin season in its tracks, and following the latest upward move in Bitcoin price charts the value of altcoins both relative to BTC and USD have began to plummet – with some setting new bear market lows. In the aftermath of yesterday’s further Bitcoin rally to $5,650, BTC dominance broke out of resistance, causing additional bleeding in the altcoin market. As the decline continues, a leading altcoin analyst believes that capitulation in altcoins has only just begun, while another analyst predicts just how far BTC dominance will rise during the altcoin reckoning.

  • Bitcoin: Despite Failing to Stay Above $5,600, BTC May be Ready to Continue Surging Higher
    Bitcoin incurred a significant amount of buying pressure yesterday that allowed it to surge past $5,600, which instantly made many investors and analysts alike to flip bullish on the cryptocurrency. Despite this, BTC was unable to hold support at this price level and has since fallen into the $5,400 region. Now, one analyst believes that Bitcoin is close to being ready to form another leg up, on the condition that it is able to garner a strong buying reaction if it is to dip into the $5,300 region. Bitcoin (BTC) Fails to Find Support at $5,600 At the time of writing Bitcoin is trading down roughly 2% at its current price of $5,490.

  • Will Increasing Regulatory Scrutiny Reduce Bitcoin’s Criminal Uses and Encourage Adoption?
    In the past, the public has largely viewed cryptocurrencies – and Bitcoin in particular – as tools widely used by criminals that provide them with unfettered anonymity while they facilitate nefarious transactions on the dark web. Although the public’s perception of BTC and other digital currencies may have been altered slightly after the 2017 bull run that sucked new participants into the markets, the stigma still remains. Despite this, increasing regulatory scrutiny may begin reducing the amount of illicit transactions that cryptocurrencies facilitate, and increasing regulatory requirements for exchanges may nullify their use as money laundering tools. Dark Web Bitcoin (BTC) Purchases Continue to Grow Steadily Over the past several years, Bitcoin has been the currency of choice for those looking to make purchases on the dark web, and many critics of the cryptocurrency incessantly claim that without the dark ...

  • Sell in May and Go Away? A Look At Historic Bitcoin Price Performance in May
    The first ever cryptocurrency, Bitcoin, is set to close its third consecutive monthly candle as green, after a record-setting six candles closed in red, taking Bitcoin price to its current bear market low of $3,150. Because of how far Bitcoin has climbed since those local lows, crypto analysts believe that May is likely to close in the red as buying momentum has begun to show exhaustion, and a larger retrace is overdue. While a red May is certainly possible, past performance in Bitcoin price during the month of May suggests that it is more likely to close green.
