  • This Hedge Fund Manager Would Never Consider Betting Against Bitcoin
    Opinions on the Bitcoin price are not hard to come by these days. The results are also very interesting and contradictory. Some people, like John McAfee, expect a Bitcoin price of $500,000 or more. BK Capital Management founder Brian Kelly feels very different. In his opinion, it’s still overvalued by at least 15%. An interesting statement, considering the price has dropped below $8,600 overnight. It is evident Brian Kelly isn’t the biggest fan of Bitcoin or other cryptocurrencies. More specifically, he is concerned the current value per BTC isn’t on par with the real value in current market conditions. It seems a lot of people took his advice to heart, as the Bitcoin price plummeted by over 15% in the past 24 hours. Whether or not this is the proverbial bottom, remains to be determined at this point. There ...

  • Cryptocurrency mining causes GPU shortage
    Despite losing some $44 billion as the year opened, the current market cap for cryptocurrencies is fast approaching the trillion mark. Because of this growth, the demand for cryptocurrency mining hardware has reached record-high levels, affecting other industries that need the same equipment. Traditionally, the pricing index for graphics processing units (GPUs) made by companies like AMD and Nvidia are relative to the demand from one of its primary consumers: gamers, and the whole industry of professional eSports built around it. Recently, however, there has been an increased demand for hardware components like GPU, which has been attributed to the rising cryptocurrency mining industry. These changes in the GPU market has resulted in supply shortages. Gamers looking to build their rigs with mid-range or high-end graphics card now have a harder time to set up their gaming machines.

  • Finding a Price: Why is Bitcoin Worth What it is?
    Up or down, or somewhere in between, there are a few things at play determining Bitcoin price. Bitcoin price, as any investor knows, can move in the blink of an eye. It can go from $20,000 to the half of it in a few weeks, and Bitcoin is on a constant rollercoaster of price discovery. This leaves many asking what determines the price of this digital currency, especially for an intangible asset that exists only on the Internet. The cryptomarket, and the Bitcoin one, in particular, is a trading hive, and as such, it is this buzz of traders who ultimately move Bitcoin price up or down. Nothing new, frankly, but it is interesting to note that, as a decentralized asset, it truly is all up to the people to determine the price. Discovering that price With Bitcoin being traded ...

  • Bee Token ICO Lost $1 Million in Ethereum as a Result of Phishing Scam
    Cryptocurrency startup BeeToken has been hacked. The attackers targeted its initial coin offering (ICO) with phishing attacks and have already duped gullible investors for over $1 million worth of Ethereum. Using email addresses like presale_regirstration@thebeetoken.com, scammers contacted would-be buyers who then signed up for the full token sale. But how the scammers acquired investors’ emails is not immediately clear. May be the startup failed to properly protect its email database. The attackers coordinated their phishing emails along with the official launch of the BeeToken ICO. The scheme involved emailing victims an ethereum address or a QR code which lead to the address, telling them to invest quickly to significantly increase their returns. In such a manner the swindlers collected at least $928,000 from potential investors. Last week the company confirmed the existence of the scams and said that investors should only send funds ...

Because it is still an embryonic industry, connections can be drawn between large established companies, cryptocurrencies, and potential blockchain adoption.

  • Hawaii considers forcing cryptocurrency senders to hold a license
    As governments around the world still try to determine how to address the cryptocurrency explosion, Hawaii state bureaucrats are looking to implement their own controls. Through a bill that was recently submitted by a group of legislators, Hawaii could create policy that would result in cryptocurrencies being considered monetary instruments. As such, transactions involving cryptocurrencies would fall under the Money Transmitters Act, and a license to transmit the digital currency would be required. Bill SB3082 proposes linking digital currency senders to regulatory policies. These existing policies would be rewritten to cover “virtual currency exchanges, transfers and storage.” The bill is designed to cover anyone who is responsible for moving or relinquishing control of cryptocurrency. It would also cover any use “tied to a medium of exchange.” If passed, anyone who wants to deal in Bitcoin Cash or any other digital ...

Price is now testing another potential support at the bottom of its falling wedge pattern visible on the 4-hour time frame. Price could bounce off this area and make another test of the wedge resistance around the $10,000 area of interest. Bitcoin price can’t quite catch a break as it suffered another selloff to the $9,000 handle. Technical Indicators Signals The 100 SMA is still below the longer-term 200 SMA to indicate that the path of least resistance is to the downside. In other words, the selloff is more likely to continue than to reverse. In addition, the gap between the moving averages is widening to reflect stronger selling pressure, possibly leading to a wedge breakdown. Note that this chart pattern ...
