As a result, BTC looks set to break above the psychological resistance of $10,000. The price has already rallied nearly 130 percent so far this quarter.

Bitcoin Price Eyes Chart Pattern That Kicked Off Bull Market in 2015

View Bitcoin’s 50- and 100-candle moving averages on the three-day chart look set to produce a bullish crossover – a sign of bull market momentum.

Public Perceptions of the Bitcoin Spot Market Are Wrong, Says Bitwise

Today’s bitcoin spot market is “significantly smaller and significantly more efficient” than is generally perceived, argues Bitwise Asset Management. In a white paper presented as comment to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) on Friday, Bitwise said the quality of the bitcoin spot market and the strength of arbitrage in that market has “improved dramatically” since the start of 2018. The average deviation of bitcoin’s price on the 10 “real” bitcoin exchanges, as measured against the consolidated price, shows a downward trend, indicating increasingly efficient arbitrage between the various…

3 Crypto Charts That Prove Bitcoin Is About to Bleed Market Share

By CCN: “Alt season” is one of the most profitable phases of the cryptocurrency market cycle. It is a period when all altcoins – from large-cap to small-cap – go through exponential growth, often at the expense of bitcoin. We experienced this phenomenon early this year, until bitcoin’s parabolic rise over the last few weeks shattered many altcoins to the point of capitulation. With many large-cap coins suffering tremendous losses, it is easy to assume that altcoins are bearish. However, nothing could be further from the truth. A closer analysis…

PAX Streamlines Redemptions in Battle for Stablecoin Market Share

Most crypto companies avoid comparisons to traditional banks. But Chad Cascarilla, CEO of the stablecoin issuer Paxos, welcomes the analogy. “It’s akin to a bank account,” Cascarilla said, describing the new integration of Paxos wallets to the sister company itBit, a crypto exchange. “It has the look and feel in part of a bank account, in part of a custody account.” As part of this new user interface, Paxos accounts now allow users to instantly redeem PAX dollar-backed stablecoins, which were previously only redeemable a few hours a day. The…

Bitcoin Has Recovered Nearly 25% of Its Bear Market Price Losses

View Bitcoin has erased nearly 24 percent of the price losses seen in 12 months to December 2018. Sunday’s high above $7,500 could come into play again if a contracting triangle on the hourly chart ends with a bull breakout. A UTC close below $6,762 would validate the bull exhaustion signaled on Sunday and allow a deeper correction to $6,000. Dips to $6,000, if any, could find bids as the longer duration charts are biased bullish. Despite a pullback from 9-month highs overnight, bitcoin (BTC) has still clawed back nearly a…
