  2. Litecoin has broken the current bearish downtrend pattern after a month-long pull-back saw price levels drop around 50%. The question remains as to whether LTC and other altcoins will begin to rally higher or continue to create lower lows over the coming weeks. Litecoin Price Analysis Daily Chart On the Daily LTC/BTC chart we can see the most recent breakout ending the downtrend stemmed from the highs in early June at around 0.018 sats. Litecoin volume has been trading very high throughout during the recent pull-back which formed a falling wedge, in comparison to the price action throughout March and April which saw market price trading much higher than what we see currently. The MACD has begun arcing back up towards the signal line with fresh buying volume appearing on the histogram. POC (Point of Control) is still surprisingly high, currently sitting around 50% higher than the current market price. This is a good indication that a swift move to the upside could play out over the coming days. This, of course, will largely dependant on whether Bitcoin begins to consolidate or carries on dropping further over the rest of the week. Key resistance levels to look out for if price levels begin rising back up towards POC are 0.0099, 0.0160, and 0.0128 sats. Litecoin Price Analysis Hourly Chart On the hourly LTC/BTC chart, we can see the most recent breakout around 0.083 sats much more clearly, which resulted in a swift 15% move to the upside. Buying momentum has shifted to the upside evident from the green bars on the Maxx Momentum indicator. 50MA is currently touching POC (Point of Control) at 0.088 sats making this a likely area for price levels to pull-back to short-term. Analysis of the LTC/USD pair can be found here. Altcoins across the market has seen some much-needed upwards movement throughout the last 48 Hours after continually creating lower lows. In my previous BTC analysis, I touched on the importance of monitoring the correlation between top volume altcoins and BTC’s price action. This can be very useful when trying to gauge the flow of the market and whether it’s actually worth trading altcoins, typically when BTC is moving quickly in any given direction altcoins struggle to hold their value as they can’t compete with BTC’s volatility, adversely when BTC is consolidating and moving sideways altcoins typically flourish. Do you think LTC will continue to grow over the coming weeks? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below!

  4. A new report by cryptocurrency aggregator site CoinGecko suggests exchange hacks have become increasingly sophisticated in the first half of 2019. The report also noted these vulnerabilities could be addressed by developing decentralized trading platforms. The report, which was published today, said that the exchange market has “grown significantly” in the past two years. Until the end of 2017, CoinGecko only tracked the thirty largest exchanges. But a concerted effort in the past eighteen months has seen the number of platforms, monitored by CoinGecko, ramp up to nearly three-hundred. But just as the industry expands, so too have exchange hacks become “increasingly sophisticated”. The report found an estimated $83M in digital assets was stolen by hackers from exchanges throughout H1 2019. That includes the Binance hack back in early May – the sixth largest exchange hack of all time – when more than $40M worth of Bitcoin (BTC) was stolen from its servers. It also includes the Cryptopia – an exchange which has subsequently closed – and Bithumb hacks, where thieves made off with $16M and $13M respectively. In all, CoinGecko estimates more than $1.3bn has now been stolen from exchanges. “Due to the increase in demand for a more secure trading platform, decentralized exchanges have risen in popularity as a way to combat the risks of centralized exchanges,” reads a CoinGecko statement, accompanying the report. As a result, there are now more than forty live DEXs, with an approximate market share of 11.5%, according to CoinGecko. Binance DEX, which launched in April this year, already has an average 24h trading volume of $5.2M. Source: CoinGecko But it’s not all bad. The report also highlighted that the number of active Lightning Network nodes has doubled to nearly 4,600 since January, with a surge of new nodes coming at the beginning of the year. The amount of Bitcoin held in the network has also increased by 87%, with a slight drop in June, when BTC surpassed $13,000. Source: CoinGecko Despite the pullback in recent days, Bobby Ong, CoinGecko’s co-founder, optimistically concluded that, “crypto summer is undeniably upon us as we see the industry enter the mainstream consciousness again, in part due to Facebook’s recent announcement of Libra.” Cryptocurrencies received mainstream attention when Facebook unveiled its new Libra coin. That has had a very positive effect on the market and maybe the catalyst for more investors entering the space.

  8. The president of the United States Mr. Donald Trump took some time out of his evening to announce to the world that he is “not a fan” of Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. Thishighlights his administration’s stance on crypto over a series of tweets published around 8:15 p.m. EST on July 11. What prompted Trump to issue these tweets could be the “Social Media Summit,” a closed-door conference that brought together many right-wing social media notables. Perhaps there was some talk of Bitcoin and Libra at this meeting. Presumably, the impending congressional hearings on Facebook’s Libra Project, scheduled for next Tuesday and Wednesday, July 16 and July 17 must have also inspired Trump to tweet on the subject. Since the tweets came one day after Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell told lawmakers that Facebook's plan to build a digital currency called Libra could not move forward unless it addressed concerns over privacy, money laundering, consumer protection and financial stability. He stated that unregulated crypto assets possess the ability to facilitate unlawful behaviour because their “value is highly volatile and based on thin air.” Digital Ticks Exchange - Bitcoin price surges despite President Trump’s Tweet On Cryptocurrency.

  11. Facebook’s foray into the payment sector has drawn backlash from governments and regulators across the globe. This time, it is China fencing its borders to keep the social media giant out. Xiaochuan Zhou, the former governor of the People’s Bank of China (PBoC), suggested the government to take precautionary monetary measures against Libra, the so-called Facebook Cryptocurrency. The noted economist, whose tenure saw China becoming the world’s second-largest economy, supported broader policy research to help prepare the financial systems against emerging payment solutions. “In future,” he said, “there may emerge a more internationalized, globalized currency, a currency so strong that will cause major currencies to establish exchange relations with it. It may not necessarily be Libra, but there will be more institutions and people try creating it.” Zhou realized the immense potential of Libra to become the face of the global dollarization trend. The reformist said the Facebook cryptocurrency is a better version of bitcoin because of its ability to avoid fluctuations and speculations and thus offering a more stable cross-border remittance solution. “Meanwhile, Libra also faces challenges including AML and fund custody,” he added. 1/ Xiaochuan Zhou, former governor of PBoC: Libra reprensents the trend of digital currencies, China should take precautions. Zhou was the PBoC governor during 2013 to 2018, when the famous Chinese bitcoin exchange crackdown and ICO ban were conducted. pic.twitter.com/XAyHgVwRsY — cnLedger (@cnLedger) July 10, 2019 Roadblocks before Facebook Introduced in June, Libra quickly became a sore in the eyes of governments both at home and abroad. The US Congress last week asked Facebook to halt the project’s development until lawmakers investigate the possible consequences of it. In Europe, France’s Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire said he fears Facebook is attempting to replace sovereign currency with Libra. Graphic Illustration Reflecting How Facebook Coin Libra Works | Image Credits: Facebook Sentiments are the same in countries that are to benefit the most from Facebook’s cross-border remittance solutions. India, which receives approximately $80 billion annually from expats, is unsure about letting the social media giant take control of its payment sector. Subhash Garg, the secretary of India’s Economic Affairs Committee, told Bloomberg in an interview that they would most likely stop Libra from becoming a phenomenon in Asia’s third-largest economy. “Design of the Facebook currency has not been fully explained. But whatever it is, it would be a private cryptocurrency and that’s not something we have been comfortable with.” With China joining the ranks, Facebook’s plans of taking its cryptocurrency to 36.28 percent of the world’s population are looking bleak. PBoC, meanwhile, is ramping up efforts to create its own digital cash. “We had an early start, but lots of work is needed to consolidate our lead,” said Wang Xin, director of the PBoC research bureau in an interview to SCMP. Facebook Response Mark Zuckerburg’s cryptocurrency team has sent letters to various US government offices, explaining they are not looking to invade users’ financial privacy or take over the existing economic framework. Facebook blockchain lead David Marcus gave a personal assurance about data privacy. “Similar to existing and widespread cryptocurrencies such as ethereum and bitcoin, transactions that take place directly on the Libra Blockchain are ‘pseudonymous,’ meaning that the user’s identity is not publicly visible,” Marcus told the House Financial Services Committee.

  12. Bitcoinist Senior Analyst, FilbFilb, believes that the basic rule of supply and demand will prevent Bitcoin from dropping to a new 2019 low. FUD to Drive Bitcoin to a New Bottom? Bitcoin’s most recent price action has presented a plethora of challenges to cryptocurrency traders, and the drop below $10,000 has the most bearish traders calling for Bitcoin to revisit the $5,000 – $7,500 range. While theories abound, a popular explanation is fear spun up by Facebook’s Libra hearing with the U.S. Senate Banking Committee combined with bearish technical factors are pushing Bitcoin price lower. Renowned crypto-analyst FilbFilb recently posted a detailed Twitter thread wherein he makes an argument for why BTC price will not come anywhere near to its previous bottom of $3,120. According to FilbFilb and Satoshi Nakamoto, Bitcoin price will stay above the cost of mining as miners must remain profitable. …the price of any commodity tends to gravitate toward the production cost.” Supply & Demand Essentially, the basic rules of supply and demand will dictate Bitcoin price and in January analysts at JP Morgan Chase found that the extraction cost of mining a single bitcoin averaged $4,060 in Q4, 2018. Comparing this average against the current Bitcoin price shows that miners are still bagging a profit of about $5,500 per Bitcoin. FilbFilb suggests that miners will sell into market demand whenever the revenue per BTC rises above mining costs but will also “limit selling [as Bitcoin’s] pre-halving event approaches to invoke the new halving bubble”. FilbFilb elaborated by saying: What happened in 2018 was miners selling off their Bitcoins at marginal costs. Only the most efficient miners survived, while their inefficient competitors got eliminated.” FilbFilb is of the opinion that miners are now holding on to their newly minted bitcoins in anticipation of the 2020 halving event. If history is a guide, then we should see miners begin to limit sales as they wait for prices to explode on the approach of the halving event, then sell as selling pressure begins to diminish. Bitcoin vs the Government Bitcoin’s most recent precipitous drop and FilbFilb’s commentary come after a two day US Senate Banking Committee meeting with Facebook to discuss the intricacies of their Libra project. Bitcoin price could also be influenced by recent comments from US President Donald Trump, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, and Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell. Each cautioned the public and regulators about the potential for cryptocurrency to facilitate organized criminal and terrorist activity. Mnuchin even went so far as to label cryptocurrency “a national security threat.” It’s possible that BTC buyers have taken a pause over fears that the Trump administration could levy some sort of partial ban or stringent regulation on the growing crypto sector. In the long-run, the current pullback is probably nothing more than a mere temporary blip and the majority of BTC investors maintain a bullish view for the sector. One must remember that institutional investors like Fidelity Investments, TD Ameritrade, E*Trade and the Intercontinental Exchange have all openly stated their intentions to provide institutional and eventually retail digital asset services to clients.

  19. Facebook cryptocurrency Libra is an imitator of Bitcoin, Meltem Demirors of CoinShares testified before the US Congress on Wednesday. The chief strategy officer appeared before the House Financial Services Committee to explain the difference between Bitcoin and thousands of cryptocurrency projects that takes inspirations from it. Putting Libra in the same bag of imitators, Demirors attempted to decouple bitcoin from it, focusing on how the cryptocurrency is entirely different than Facebook’s version of global payment service. “We are seeing a wave of interest in cryptocurrencies and countless imitators which borrow some features but – decidedly – are not cryptocurrencies,” she said in her address. “Libra is not a cryptocurrency.” The Differences Demirors touched upon the various factors that separate Bitcoin from Libra, such as decentralization. The fact that no single entity or person could block or censor transactions on the bitcoin network undermined Libra, which is an entity controlled by a group of companies with the ability to practice censorship. The CoinShares executive also stressed on the underlying value of Libra and Bitcoin. She highlighted that Libra would be pegged to a pool of fiat and other reserves. On the other hand, Bitcoin remains its own asset, backed by its own scarcity and demand for it. “There is no entity that holds assets that give Bitcoin value,” Demirors clarified. Third and last, Bitcoin is permissionless, meaning anybody can enter or exit its network without anybody’s permission. On the other hand, people will require to seek permission from Facebook to access Libra, which does not adhere to the idea of bitcoin. Bitcoin is Not Going Away Demirors’ statement appeared in the wake of Congress’ concerns about Libra which, following the comments of US President Donald Trump, got extended to the rest of the cryptocurrency sector. Trump last week bashed Libra and Bitcoin in a string of tweets. That sent the bitcoin’s spot rate down by 31 percent as of July 17, 11:00 GMT. The investors’ confidence in the cryptocurrency also suffered after Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin called it “a national security threat.” I am not a fan of Bitcoin and other Cryptocurrencies, which are not money, and whose value is highly volatile and based on thin air. Unregulated Crypto Assets can facilitate unlawful behavior, including drug trade and other illegal activity…. — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 12, 2019 The US Congress, meanwhile, kept its focus on Libra, a cryptocurrency it believed is an attempt to replace sovereign currencies. The lower house of representatives called on the Facebook executive David Marcus on Wednesday to get answers. Marcus affirmed that they would not launch Libra cryptocurrency without the permission of US regulatory authorities. In her attempt to separate bitcoin from the Libra mess, Demirors reiterated that the technology is untouchable. She compared it with the internet, an open, distributed, and borderless protocol, which cannot be regulated or governed. She told the Congress: “I urge you to view Bitcoin as an open public network that enables innovation and growth. And to treat Libra and its future imitators in the context of the facts: private efforts led by corporations holding billions of dollars of the public money. These things are not Bitcoin and not cryptocurrencies.” The bitcoin price recovered by up to 10.55 percent following Demirors’ testimony. It is now trading at $9,428 on Coinbase exchange.
